Sochi time, events, dates
Russia is setting up a special zone for protest rallies at the Sochi Winter Olympics
where security will be tight.
This will be in place from 7 January until 21 March.
Protests during the Games in February can be held if agreed with the authorities in advance.
But limits can be placed on the number of people taking part in demonstrations.
Security has been a major concern at the event, with fears of attack by terrorists.
Two suicide bomb attacks killed 34 people in Volgograd on 29 and 30 December. Russia believes the kilelrs were from the North Caucasus.
The bombings prompted President Vladimir Putin to order further security and personally inspect Olympic sites.
Security in Sochi includes surveillance by (armed) drones and strict limits on road access to the city.

Five bodies found near Sochi
January 10, 2014 Five bodies found shot in the head near Sochi
With 30,000 Russian troops already on combat alert for the Olympic games opening in Sochi on Feb. 7,
Russian security has uncovered 5 bodies of men shot in the head at Stavropol, a town east of Sochi.
Bomb traps surrounding the four vehicles holding the bodies exploded as security officers approached.
6 deaths and a car explosion this week near Sochi.
The bodies of 3 men and explosives were found in a vehicle.
A vehicle with a body exploded, and two other bodies were found in other vehicles.
Chechen Muslims are suspected.
Russia arrests five terror suspects
Jan 12, 2014 Russian authorities say they have detained five members of a "banned international terrorist organisation" in the North Caucusus region.
The arrests were made in the town of Nalchik, some 300km (185 miles) east of the Black Sea resort of Sochi, the host of next month's Winter Olympics.
The main concern is the threat of attack by Islamist militants.
No group has said it carried out the attacks, but Russia's most wanted man, Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov, has previously urged his fighters to target the Games.
U.S. studying possible rescue plans in case of crisis at Sochi Olympics
Jan 19 2014 (Reuters) - In the face of Islamic terrorism concerns during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, U.S. military has contingency plans for evacuating Americans from the games in case of a crisis.
But U.S. officials have concluded there would be major obstacles to mounting a large-scale effort by the military or other U.S. government resources to evacuate Americans from Sochi.
Russia is always reluctant to allow foreign military forces, especially USSAS, on Russian territory.
Russia has primary responsibility for protecting everyone attending the Sochi Games including Americans.
They wont welcome intervention by outsiders.
Russian President Vladimir Putinhas staked his political and personal prestige on the success of the Olympics.
One U.S. senator said he did not think the games would be safe enough for him or his relatives to attend.
I would say Sochi may be safe, but getting there wont be.
Sochi hunt for black widow
Jan 21, 2014 US, Russian forces hunt jihadist widow feared inside Sochi Olympic zone.
USA is helping Russia hunt for 4 female terrorists, including a white widow (wife of dead terrorist) who could already be inside the security zone.
Ruzanna Ibragimova, the 22-year-old widow of a jihadist killed by Russian security forces, is believed to have traveled from Dagestan to Sochi.
The term black widow is also prevalent as a description of Chechen widows whose husbands have been killed in the ongoing fight against Russia.
Ibragimova was spotted on the street outside the foreign ministry near Sochi.
Muslim jihad leader Doku Umarov has called for attacks to stop Russia from hosting the games.
Its as if the NWO is telling the world they plan terrorism - to punish Putin for his rise in global popularity?
Thats what the NWO does - it lets the world know its plan ahead of time, usually using movies.

U.S. ready to 'extract' citizens from Sochi Olympics: Hagel
The United States will be ready to rescue Americans from the upcoming Sochi Olympics, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said amid heightened security fears in the run-up to the Games.
"If we need to extract our citizens, we will have appropriate arrangements with the Russians to do this," Hagel told journalists on Friday.
Over 10,000 American athletes and spectators are expected to attend the Games, which start on Feb. 7.
Russia has the main responsibility for protecting the Olympics, but recent deadly suicide attacks have heightened worries about militant attacks.
On Thursday, the U.S. Olympic team and at least five other national delegations said they had received messages making terrorist threats ahead of the Games.
The threats arrived as Russian security forces were hunting for at least five suspected terrorists – some of them so-called “black widows” – who may be plotting attacks against the Olympic torch relay or the games themselves, according to notices posted in Sochi.
A four-minute video which had been posted by an ally of al Qaeda emerged Friday. In it, a militant likened the upcoming Olympics to those held under Adolf Hitler in 1936, and warned again of terror at the upcoming Sochi Games.
Russia has not asked for help or technology from the United States to help defend thousands of athletes and spectators expected, Hagel added.
"As of right now, the Russians have not requested any specific assistance or technology. We want them to know that if they need our help, we want to help," Hagel told Pentagon reporters on Friday.
The United States has already announced that it will station two warships nearby in the Black Sea during the Games.

SOCHI - 3 Sochi hotels not ready
Feb 3, 2014 Russian Olympic officials have admitted that only 6 of the 9 media hotels in Sochi are fully operational.
With thousands of journalists expected to pour into the Black Sea resort soon, the International Olympic Committee is urging organizers to move quickly to resolve the issue. Some media have already arrived in Sochi with no place to stay.
The Games begin Thursday February 6 at a ceremony that is expected to project Russia as a world and sporting power.
Olympic Teams from New Zealand, Mongolia, Japan, Belgium and the Philippines were the first being ceremonially welcomed on Sunday in the two Olympic villages by the sea and by the mountains. The Russian team is due to arrive on February 5.
Australia banned athletes from leaving the Olympic zones due to security worries.
They really went overboard implementing extreme Police State security measures for the Super Bowl - guess what, nothing happened, and ultimately the population will continue to buy into these "security measures" thinking Caesar will keep them safe.
Now it looks like Sochi is doing the same thing - looks like nothing will happen again - and like with yesterday's SB, it's also going to make the internet's "conspiracy theorists" look like crazies.(ie-there were plenty of YT videos recently exposing a potential FF attack at the game, now unsurprisingly these "conspiracy theory FF nuts" are getting scoffed at)
NFL Zombies on The Loose!
1The 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
I've been thinking about this verse for awhile - notice this verse does NOT say, "There IS Peace and safety"(meaning they're *relieved* there's an [appearance]of just that). But rather, it LOOKS LIKE they're SAYING this b/c they WANT peace and safety?
IOW - look at all of the Police State measures they've been implementing at sporting events, "lockdowns" in schools(in the wave of all of these shootings), etc. Or how about the Patriot Act, and that Martial Law exercise in Boston when they were looking for one of those "bombers"? Or how about after Katrina when the Clergy Response Teams in the Gulf Coast worked with FEMA? And FEMA went around confiscating everyone's guns during this time?
They came about b/c pretty much the population(for the most part, that is) have been BEGGING for it. Personally, I was just a mere window-shopping Churchianity goer when I lived in New Orleans during Katrina, and when my "pastor" was part of this CRT helping the government, I'll admit I thought it was a great idea at the time.
2Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2Pe 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Sochi promises tight security at Olympics
The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics begin Friday amid security concerns about attacks from regional terrorist groups.
SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Sochi promises tight security at Olympics with a "Ring of Steel" security force. Organizers have promised "the safest games in history" with 100,000 police officers, military troops, and security agents forming what they call a "Ring of Steel" around the perimeter of Sochi.
People watching the games will be subject to X-ray scans, bag checks, vehicle searches and aerial surveillance. U.S. and British intelligence officials are still concerned there will be an attack due to the threat from the northern Caucasus terror group Imarat Kavkaz, which threatened to attack the Olympics. The group succeeded in a terrorist attack 400 miles north of Sochi in a twin bombing that killed 34 people.
In addition to physical surveillance with hundreds of cameras, security agents will be monitoring all cell phones, emails, and social media in Sochi during the games. One official said, "it will be the NSA on steroids."

Toothpaste bomb threat

Olympic Glory and the hidden things
February 7, 2014 Bill Wilson
Russia, who has embraced Islam for a long time, is worried about a terror attack at the Sochi Olympic games. I wonder if anyone has considered the terror to righteousness it is promoting from the inside. The US is warning about toothpaste tube bombs on Sochi flights. Yet I read where over 100,000 condoms were being given out to athletes at the games. The New York Times is reporting that animal rights activists are running around the area trying to save the stray dogs--why? Because the Russian government is killing hundreds of strays before the games begin. I also read where everyone’s computers have been hacked by the Russian government. Reporters I know are asking for prayers for their safety.
This is a microcosm of the world system. It is a place where they are trying to protect people with sex, government spying, and killing while at the same time the evil they have embraced and placed on a pedestal is also trying to kill them. I am not sure that the Olympics have the same aura of old. People these days are intrigued by the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, er president, because he is taking a stand on homosexuality and is a hard-liner on other issues. But we must remember that this guy is a former KGB, a Russian gestapo agent. He is not a moral man. He runs a country of Mafioso's who murder reporters and use thuggery and tyranny to keep people in line.
CBS reports that Putin’s girlfriend will light the Olympic torch. He divorced his wife last year. But what is divorce, really, in a society that for nearly a century banned God? Can marriage really exist without God? Russia is really not much changed since the Soviet era in some aspects. CBS is also reporting “the deputy prime minister of Olympic preparations revealed that video surveillance equipment is documenting shower activity in hotel rooms.” Typical of Soviet propaganda, his spokesman said that cameras were installed only during construction of the hotels and later removed. Uh-huh. Reporters are complaining about their rooms, bad toilets, lack of heat and problems with water quality.
A member of the catering staff for the Olympics posted on instagram: “Due to an extreme shortage of pillows for athletes who unexpectedly arrived to Olympic Village in the mountains, there will be a transfer of pillows from all apartments to the storehouse on 2 February 2014.” Another blogger posted that residents near the stadiums are forbidden from using their fireplaces to avoid “unsightly” smoke coming from the chimneys. Its winter! I’m sure viewers will see a much more glorious side of the Olympics. Daniel 2:22 says the Lord “reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.” The Olympic torch can’t hold a candle to the light of Christ. The world might be fooled, but not the Lord. Just saying.......

NBC Commentator's Wardrobe Shows Support for LGBT
But really, it is not about politics.
Ex-Olympic skater and current NBC Commentator for the Sochi games Johnny Weir is not shy about protesting Russia's homosexual laws live on air, if his wardrobe has anything to say about it.
Weir has appeared with full makeup -- blush, lipstick, etc. -- as well as silk blouses and gaudy jewelry. Hairstyles have ranged form piled on top to a braided tiara (seen below). This was his plan from the beginning, as NJ.com reports:
[My wardrobe will be a] cross between Coco Chanel and Brooks Brothers” with a hint of “Stanley Tucci’s character in the Hunger Games without the blue hair.
Even though Weir says he is showing support for the LGBT community, some feel this is not enough and want to see more aggressive protests. Weir recognizes this tension:
There is very little gray on this. It’s very black and white to a lot of people. If I support the Olympics I’m anti gay people. If I take the other side, a lot of people will see me choosing the LGBT community over the Olympics.
Ironically, Weir insists that this is not about politics:
The Olympics are supposed to be about these wonderful athletes who are chasing these lifelong dreams, not politics.
Weir wins the gold for dishonesty.

Openly Gay Medalist 'Cuddles' with Putin
By ANDREW SPRINGER and KIRIT RADIA | Good Morning America – Mon, Feb 10, 2014 11:34 AM EST
The first openly gay gold medalist at the Sochi Olympic games says she got “a cuddle” from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Dutch speedskater Ireen Wust told Dutch national broadcaster NOS, "I got a cuddle from him," at a party held in her honor. "He congratulated me and asked if everything was OK in Russia and I congratulated him on (Russian speedskater) Olga Graf, of course, for her third place (in the 3,000 meters). He was happy to see me, but then he had to leave again. But I cuddled him."
John van Vliet, a spokesman for the Netherlands' Olympics Committee, said Putin gave Wust a quick hug and wished her well.
Wust, who took gold at the 3,000 meter women's speedskate on Sunday, is one of seven openly gay athletes competing at the games.
Putin’s embrace of Wust comes after months of international outrage over Russia’s gay propaganda law, which prohibits what it deems the promotion of homosexuality around minors. Gay rights advocates fear it could be used to persecute homosexuals in Russia, many of whom have complained about a deteriorating climate of hate towards gays in recent months.
Some feared that gay athletes or fans could be targeted at the Sochi Olympics. Those fears may have been quieted by Putin’s meeting with Wust, the first openly gay Olympic medalist.
