Things seemed to have slowed a bit. Though we had a terrorist attack last week, the horror appears to have slithered away for a bit. It’s just so difficult to get the sheeple all upset in December. So, I’m not expecting much over the next two weeks.
This doesn’t mean that nothing will happen. LOTS is going on. In fact, you should expect big political moves to happen over the next few weeks, because this is the time of year when people really aren’t paying attention.
Disaster awaits. That brooding, malevolent future patiently bides its time, while we pursue our own interests. But, it remains at rest for only a season. In fact, we see evidence that it no longer slumbers. Others recognize that calamity is on the move.
How about you?
Banks have begun to fall in Austria. War in the Middle East grows hotter by the day. Greece turns to Russia. Russia tests a new ICBM. The US government tightens the shackles on Americans. And, then… there’s Jade Helm 15.
Please, do NOT misunderstand the threat that Jade Helm demonstrates. Never in the history of the United States have we had such a training exercise. Never.
I’m still amazed at this Petrodollar System. The more I look at it, the more I realize how it has shaped the world over the last forty years. One brilliant psychopath had an idea and made everyone in the world slaves to the US Federal Reserve.
That psychopath was Henry Alfred Kissinger, and he incorporated yet another brilliant idea into his system that has kept the American Empire alive far longer than anyone could have imagined. In fact, I believe that it is this second element that is the sole reason why so many of us have been wrong in our predictions of the death of the dollar.
After I thought my way through yesterday’s article, things have become a bit clearer. And, this has allowed me to understand the morning news a little better.
As I said yesterday, if the petrodollar system falls, the American Empire falls. This means that whoever controls petroleum, controls the American Empire.
We invaded Iraq twice to preserve the petrodollar. We’ve been training and arming jihadis in Syria to preserve the petrodollar. And, we seem awfully reluctant to do ANYTHING to ISIS because of the petrodollar.
Oh, and we’ll have a nuclear war because of the petrodollar. I almost forgot about that one.
It was another unsettled week, and not just in the headlines. There was an ominous feel about this past week that went beyond the troubling news. It could be that the entities ‘that go bump in the night’ are starting to see the light of day. Or, maybe I’m just feeling the effects of toxic air from mainland China.
But, there can be no denying that something IS going on. The CIA, through its National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is rushing forward to consolidate their takeover of Ukraine. Russia is moving to neutralize this threat and make a counter-move of her own.
Did you know that the total value of everything that America produces is LESS than the value of the US national debt?
Pretty shocking. But, it gets worse.
If you look at the US debt clock, you see that our ‘official debt’ is something like $17.5 trillion. THAT part of the debt is covered by the US Treasury Department when they issue bills, notes and bonds.
We now face the biggest financial collapse in the history of mankind. On this website, I have talked in detail about how we arrived at this point in time. So, I won’t belabor that point because there is a larger one to think about. You see, the biggest financial collapse in the history of mankind will also cause the greatest social collapse in the history of mankind. All of our worst nightmares will come true, and we will want to hang the people responsible.
It’s hard to know when the US dollar will finally die. Even now, the only reason why it’s still alive is that there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of an alternative to the dollar. But, that’s changing as the Chinese Yuan starts to gain momentum in the world. And, that’s not the only threat to US Dollar hegemony.
This may seem like a trivial point to raise, but it’s actually very, very important. Remember that gold has been the de facto currency for thousands of years, and it has been the most sought after safe haven when the future is in doubt. When you wanted a safe place to put your money, you always bought gold. Always.
This principle is well understood by central bankers all over the world, which is why it would make sense for them to prop up the value of their currencies by pushing down the value of gold. I know that sounds a little bizarre, but it’s the best explanation for what I said on Monday:
On Monday, I said that the US is completely and utterly bankrupt. I went on to say that… according to the US National Debt Clock, the total assets of the United States… planes, trains, automobiles… roads, bridges, buildings… houses, tricycles, backyards… is less in value than the total obligations owed by the US Federal Government. To put it another way, the debt owed by the government exceeds the total value of the entire country. Or, to make this more personal, total US Federal unfunded liabilities (i.e., debts) exceeds $1 million per taxpayer. And then, I asked a question.
