If you are concerned about where our world is heading it would be well to take an interest in Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (Vanga 1911 – 1996). Vanga lived in Rupite, which straddles the borders of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece. It is a place said to be a source of incredible cosmic energy.
A DIFFICULT AND PAINFUL DEATH: On 1 March 1953, Stalin’s staff found him semi-conscious on the bedroom floor of his Volynskoe dacha. He had suffered a cerebral haemorrhage. He was moved onto a couch and remained there for three days. He was hand-fed using a spoon, given various medicines and injections, and leeches were applied to him.
On February 1 1945, Poland’s General Anders reproached Winston Churchill for not adhering to the English guarantees (to defend Poland’s independence). He asked the unelected British Prime Minister. ‘What shall we say to our soldiers? Soviet Russia is now confiscating half of our territory and wants the remaining part of Poland to be managed according to her own fashion. We know from experience where that leads.’

One of the 20th Century’s great mysteries is what happened to Imperial Russia’s gold reserves following the Wall Street-financed coup in 1917 that overthrew the Tsarist government. This coup is known wrongly as the Russian Revolution. At the outbreak of World War One the gold reserves of Imperial Russia were by far the largest in the world. Leaving aside Russia’s priceless arts likewise looted and sent abroad the gold in Russia’s vaults weighed 1,311 tonnes. At today’s value the stolen bullion’s value is $60 billion. Gold reserves that fell into the hands of the Bolsheviks totalled considerably more at 1.101 million rubles. After signing the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, German bankers asked Lenin to hand over part of Russian gold. Such is the sensitivity surrounding the Russian gold reserve’s eventual destination that there is virtually no mention of its fate in the English language.
