THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION PROGRAMS ABOUT NOSTRADAMUS, by Victor Baines

March 31, 2014

Previous to the tragic events of 9/11, there were only two or three documentary films about Nostradamus available for the public to view. However, after 9/11, due to the fact that Nostradamus predicted this tragedy in several of his quatrains, it began a media frenzy to produce cable television programs about him and his prophetic literary works.
I know all about these productions because, due to my many years of research, writing, and speaking about this fascinating topic– I was involved in helping to create many of them (both as a researcher and as an expert commentator). Making documentary films is fun. It can be hard and demanding work at times, but the pay-off of everyone’s hard work is intellectually rewarding, and it’s a great joy to experience “the feeling” one gets the first night that the show is finally broadcast for the first time on TV.
I have been busy “story boarding” an interesting group of quatrains about potential fascinating events in the future which have yet to occur! I know so much about this interesting topic that I could produce several great documentaries, in different production styles, that would probably prove to be “very successful” in ratings and content!
“Unique intellectual property” is the name of the game when it comes to this topic. The person who possesses it, and the people who have the power to create a good broadcast
So if any cable television producers are looking for new ideas to develop into documentary films they should consider contacting me to discuss what they might have in mind, and or consider some of the excellent production idea that I might have for them.
I’m well known in video production houses and radio stations in Los Angeles, New York City, Washington, D.C., London, Sydney, Christchurch, Vienna, Tokyo, and Bogata. I have worked with lots of people–all over the world– including The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, The National Geographic Channel, the BBC, and plenty of others too.  Hey–let’s do some more work together.  Let’s do this!

RUSSIA AND UKRAINE (IS PUTIN EUROPE’S NEWEST HITLER?), by Victor Baines

March 31, 2014

In 1939, Hitler invaded the nation of Poland under the pretense of “rescuing the German people” who lived there from the danger posed to them by the Polish people In reality there was “no danger” posed to the German people living in Poland—but to Hitler–it was “the perfect lie” to use as the reason to take over Poland—starting World War II.
Now, in 2014, President Putin (of Russia) appears to have used “the same false logic” to invade the Crimea, that Adolf Hitler used in 1939 to invade Poland! And shame on him for doing so! Putin is no better or more moral that Hitler was, when it comes to invading another sovereign and independent nation that borders his own. No one in the international community of free nations is applauding Putin ( a former member of the KGB) for this illegal and immoral act! In today’s Russia, the aggressive modus operandi of the U.S.S.R. appears to be just as alive and well as it was from 1945 to 1988, in the glory days of Soviet aggression.
So what are the people of Ukraine going to do about this situation? Are the citizens of Crimea going to submit to an illegal election in order to vote on the idea of joining Russia? Well sure enough—they did. Now they have been annexed by Russia.
Nostradamus wrote about Russia. He referred to Russia by several names, but mostly as “Aquillon”—meaning “the Northern land”—in nineteen passages. He predicted the creation and the fall of socialism (in quatrain #4-32), the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. It is interesting to note that Hitler was also defeated by the Northern wind during World War II.
In quatrain # 2-89, Nostradamus predicted and era in time when “the two great masters (of the world–meaning the U.S.S.R and America?) would be friends, and their great power will be seen to grow”. In quatrain # 5-78, Nostradamus predicted that “the two do not remain allied for long” (followed by a war). If this is indeed a reference to Russia and America, is the time for Russia and the West to become adversaries again upon us now? Well–we will have to wait and see how things develop.
So will the Russians halt their military invasion of Europe in the Crimea, or will they be stupid enough to invade the rest of the Ukraine, or Moldavia, or even worse—Latvia or Estonia—which are members of NATO? NATO would certainly respond to a Russian invasion with a quick and harsh military counter-attack if the worse scenario were to occur! We still have plenty of A-10 Warthog Tank-busters in our air fleet. But would Putin really be that dumb to do so, hopefully not! Presently, the Russians have 50,000 troops mobilized on its border with Ukraine. Is this a psychological ploy and a show of force, or do the Russians have other intentions?
The Ukrainian military is rather weak and lacking in weapons and technology (as well as lacking in man power). However, they are mobilizing what military assets they have and building up their army and militia units in the same type of way that the Israeli Army did back in the late 1940’s when they gained their independence. If Ukraine was invaded, there is no doubt that they would put up a good fight against the Russians.
Hopefully this entire matter can be resolved through “prudent diplomacy”. It should be noted that in Nostradamus’ Epistle, it appears that Russia and America will be important and powerful allies again in the future, and that they will be united in a future war against nations in the East, therefore, lets hope that prudent thinking will prevail!
