The Media Is Ignoring These Two Events Which Could Cause Economic Collapse

April 7, 2022

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Birch Gold Group

Way back in 2014 I wrote an article titled False East/West Paradigm Hides the Rise of Global Currency. I was inspired to cover the issue due to three specific trends which at the time were concerning.

The first trend was the increased mention within globalist circles of something called the “Great Reset.” Christine Lagarde who, as the head of the IMF at the time, was suddenly throwing the phrase around in press interviews and in Q&A events at the World Economic Forum. This appeared to me to be a rebranding of the “New World Order” agenda which establishment elites had been known to mutter about in moments of rare honesty. It indicated a concerted push towards global centralization in the face of economic and social decline within nations.

The second trend was the shift of Eastern nations into a more open partnership with global banks, including the IMF’s inclusion of China in the Special Drawing Rights basket system, and in the case of Russia, Goldman Sachs becoming deeply entrenched as an “economic adviser” to the Kremlin.

The third trend was the inexplicable rush by both Chinese and Russian central banks to buy up as much physical gold as possible. To my mind, the ONLY reason for China and Russia to buy up precious metals was as a hedge against inflation and currency collapse; specifically, as a hedge against the collapse of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency. This could be precipitated by the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) nations and others dropping the dollar in global trade, or by an economic war in which using the dollar became untenable for eastern countries.

It was as if the relationship between the East and the globalists had evolved into something else – clearly, Russia and China had been warned about the Great Reset agenda and both nations were now positioning to survive the fallout. The program to destroy the U.S. dollar and diminish the U.S. economy has been openly admitted by globalists for many years. Back in 1988 the Rothschild owned magazine The Economist essentially revealed the plan in an article titled Get Ready for a World Currency.

The article suggested that in approximately 30 years (in other words, today) there would be a decline in the economic influence of the U.S. and the dollar, leading to the institution of a new currency which they called the Phoenix backed by the IMF SDR basket. This agenda has been reiterated by global institutions over and over again the past few decades and it appears that it is now being enacted through an engineered economic war between the East and the West, just as I predicted.

In 2014 I stated:

“The destruction of the dollar and the institution of a global economic bureaucracy are not actions that can be executed openly by international financiers. These events will coincide with extreme catastrophe, likely worse than the Great Depression era, with millions upon millions of people losing the ability to financially support themselves and their families…

I have warned for quite some time that the development of East/West tensions would be used as a cover for a collapse of the dollar system. I have warned that among the American media this collapse would be blamed on an Eastern dump of foreign exchange reserves and treasuries, resulting in a global domino-effect ending U.S. world reserve status. In turn, the international community would be conditioned to see this as the mere bumbling of a spoiled America gone power-mad, rather than the result of a covert program of economic destabilization. This might lead to all-out war or a fiscal firestorm that leaves much of the world crippled and desperate for aid.”

But an economic war with the East might not be enough to undermine the U.S. and herald a new world economy with a one world currency. The globalists would have to sabotage our economy from within, as well.

Whose side is the Federal Reserve on?

Another event which I have been warning about for many years is the inevitable action by the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates into economic weakness, causing not only an inversion of the yield curve but the crash of U.S. stock markets in response.

Here’s the problem: the Fed has created a Catch-22 scenario (I believe deliberately) in which U.S. markets have become addicted to central bank quantitative easing, QE, along with stimulus measures. Stock buybacks have been the main driver for US stocks for years, and these buybacks are funded by easy loans from the Fed. Obviously these same easy-money policies also triggered the exponential growth of inflation.

If the Fed was to ever hike rates and take the punch bowl away from the party, stocks and numerous sectors of the economy would crash (we saw a taste of this back in 2018). But, if they didn’t hike rates and stop asset purchases, then there would be a hyperinflationary disaster.

Either way, the American public loses and the globalists get the crisis they want. Instead of solving either problem of inflation or deflation, the Fed has conjured a crisis event which combines both – a stagflationary crash.

I outlined this threat in detail last year in my article The Fed’s Catch-22 Taper Is a Weapon, Not a Policy Error.

Years back it was hard to say exactly when we would see the breaking point. Today, it is obvious that the moment has arrived, and not surprisingly the mainstream media is barely reporting on it.

Russia Declares End Of Dollar Trade

The BRICS nations including Russia, China and India have been creeping away from the U.S. dollar in response to western sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine and the removal of Russia from the SWIFT system. This action is primarily focused on Russian oil and gas exports, as Russia now demands that anyone buying the vital commodities must do so in rubles instead of dollars (up to now, the de facto global petro-currency).

The mainstream media has completely ignored the implications of this tactic on the part of Russia; not only that, but they have buried any mention of the fact that the Russian central bank just backed the ruble with gold. This is why the ruble exploded back to life after currency markets reopened in the country. The western financial media assured themselves and the public that the Russian currency was stone dead, guaranteeing a cataclysmic depression in the world’s 11th largest economy. Instead, the recent spike in the ruble’s value has bewildered U.S. and E.U. economists, but it was easy to predict if you’ve been tracking Russian gold purchases for the past decade.

This means that the Russian economy is not about to fold anytime soon, and now the EU, which is reliant on Russian oil and gas exports for 40% of their energy needs, is about to face economic doom unless they submit to paying for energy in rubles (which they won’t) or find a replacement source for gas and oil (which is impossible). Furthermore, with Europe on the global market looking for alternative oil sources, a big chunk of the oil market will be rerouted.

What does this mean? Less oil and gas to fulfill the demand in other countries. In other words, prices are about to skyrocket higher yet again.

For now, Biden is trying to temper price spikes by releasing strategic petroleum reserves, but this is merely a stopgap. There’s nowhere near enough in U.S. reserves to offset the sheer volume of oil that Europe needs. Unless there is a dramatic change in the posture of Russia or the EU on oil for Rubles, I continue to predict that gas prices will rise to at least double what they are today across the U.S. It’s a simple matter of supply and demand.

Beyond the issue of higher oil prices, the Russian move to completely drop the dollar as the petrocurrency may be the initial domino in a chain that will lead to the end of the dollar’s global reserve status.

As I have noted for over a decade, Russia and the BRICS nations have been preparing for this outcome for a long time. China and Russia have only moved closer together, and this pairing makes perfect sense strategically – Russia has massive natural resources and raw materials, while China has the largest manufacturing and exporting base in the world. India and China together hold 36% of the global population, more than enough people to act as a consumer foundation.

This does not mean the BRICS will not see some fiscal pain as a result of the economic war, but it’s important for the western public to understand this fact: WE are the real target of the conflict, NOT Russia. It is the U.S. and Europe that will be hurt most, with the dollar suffering the worst damage.

The public is being misled to think that there is no risk on our side of the global chess board when the exact opposite is true. Most of the risk is on our side.

The Two Events Work Hand In Hand

The conflict with Russia and (for now, only potentially) China has completely overshadowed the second big story in economic news. That’s the Fed’s predictable move to raise interest rates, even though they’re doing so during a time of economic weakness.

Numbers for retail, home sales and manufacturing have been in decline along with GDP. At the same time, prices on necessities including food, energy and housing costs have continued to increase at a dizzying pace.

This is a textbook case of stagflationary collapse.

The timing of the Fed’s rate hikes could not be more perfect if they were trying to increase the damage of the crash ahead. We know for a fact the Fed is capable of such a cold-blooded act, because we’ve seen it before.

Anyone familiar with the Fed’s history can tell you this is exactly what they did in the early 1930s, which led to an even worse drop in U.S. markets and the prolonged and torturous deflationary event we now know as the Great Depression. Except this time, we will see elements of both inflation and deflation simultaneously.

Consider: the invasion of Ukraine happened conveniently right after the recent official reports of a 40-year-record-high spike in U.S. inflation and the Fed’s decision to taper. History tells us the likely results: a considerable-to-catastrophic drop in stocks within the next few months, along with frozen credit markets. Just like in 2008, the entire financial system will shudder to a halt.

Stock markets don’t really concern me all that much, given they’re nothing more than a trailing indicator of economic disaster. In other words, stocks usually crash after the collapse has already begun.

But because of the overall addiction to easy credit in the corporate world, the effects of the Fed interest rate hikes will be like forcing heroin junkies to go cold-turkey. The smaller, less-resilient businesses who can’t afford lobbyists will die, leaving only the largest and coincidentally government supported companies to feast on the remains. (But hey, this time the bankers have Russia to blame, so it all works out for them…)

Time is short – prepare now

I outline all of this not because I mean to frighten people with doom-and-gloom, but to inform you of reality. Time is very short for us to prepare.

In addition, I hope to shine a spotlight on the propaganda that is being spread within the mainstream media. These ongoing campaigns of lies and omissions of inconvenient truths are designed to mislead the public into thinking the coming crash is all about the East vs. West conflict. After all, that’s a much easier sell, isn’t it? The common refrain today is that “We have to suffer so we can overcome our barbaric foes overseas!”

But it’s a con. The truth is, this is a planned crisis that has been in the works for decades.

Make no mistake and mark my words, in a couple years you will be hearing all about a grand plan on the part of institutions like the IMF and the WEF to “save” the global economy using a new currency system that is nationally “neutral.” They will offer to peg all currencies to the SDR basket and likely a digital currency framework as long as each nation accepts that the globalists are in control of their economies by default.

The attempt will be made. Whether or not the globalists succeed is another matter. It is up to us to insulate ourselves from the crisis as much as possible. We must be ready to oppose the new globalist system with everything we can muster.



After 14 long years of ultra-loose monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, it’s no secret that inflation is primed to soar.

    Great artcle Brandon.
    Ive now been in China for three years, two in the mainland, one in Hong Kong. Born in England, years around the world, 15 in Argentina, a few in Colombia, the US, Europe, Israel, etc.
    So what?
    Seen a not!
    China is readying for is Duel Circuit economy.
    The EO, Export Oriented, External Circuit, to be slimmed down to its Imperial OBOR, One Belt One Road, as its currency will have a high value in the nearish future.
    It is prepping for an IS, Import Substitution model, with its Internal Circuit.
    The Russia / China duo in this NWO Kabuki Theatre is for Russia to start the pulla away from the petro dollar, then for China to seal it.
    The IMF’s SDR, Special Drawing Rights, will then be more evenly balanced between devalued Western currencies a revalued Eastern ones.
    CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currencies, will be issued and reflect the SDR balance.
    So much more Global Theatre needs to happen, but that’s some of my take on it.

    Love your work Branden and great comments by many.

    Releasing oil from the Strategic Reserve is not a “stopgap”. It is actually a public relations ploy or a gambit to throw us off of what is really happening.

      No, it’s also a stopgap to slow the price surge in oil markets, which it has done, for now….but expect prices to rise again much higher this summer.

      • woody188 April 7, 2022 at 2:42 pm

        I would agree. We’re at $3.79/gal. this morning. I’ve read to expect $6.50 to $6.95 for the summer.

        • Chevrus April 11, 2022 at 6:32 am

          Taking a glance at GasBuddy, the cheapest to be found in LA os $5.09….not that I live there.

      • Steve April 8, 2022 at 6:35 am

        It’s also a great way of ensuring that there are no strategic reserves for the future.

        • JustOneGuy April 8, 2022 at 9:52 am

          Howdy Steve,
          Actually, it’s worse than that. Given that the major Petroleum producers are an integral cog in the PTB’s machine then consider the circumstance in Europe closely. Those have utterly no significant means of sourcing the required stocks of petroleum products other than Russia and it’s affiliates. The only other possible option is to drain the natural resource base of North America and ship it across the Atlantic at exorbitant prices.
          This serves their broader agenda in myriad ways. Europe is depleted of FOREX reserves while being crushed by high prices, whilst simultaneously we here in North America see insanely high prices as a result of the competition on the open market…for fuel that comes from own continent.
          Sucks, don’t it?


          • Chevrus April 11, 2022 at 6:38 am

            It’s hard not to see it as sabotage on an epic scale.
            What I have noticed is the wear and tear on the general public, independent of “gang affiliation”. Apart from the Branch Covidians, most people are innately aware that something is very wrong and that they are being lied to. As the fuel squeeze gets worse, I think we are going to see some very angry citizens. The control mechanisms in place will only go so far, and when people get desperate they tend to do whatever they must.

        • Cato the Uncensored April 10, 2022 at 1:39 pm

          Yes, exactly when said reserves might actually be needed. Mr. Biden is at the head of the Fifth Column.

  • Rodster April 7, 2022 at 12:35 pm

    And right on cue with Brandon’s article is none other than the World Economic Forum who says that UBI is the prayer to solve all our answers. It will even things out between the rich and the poor. Sure, if they say so.

    What they don’t say is that UBI is an entrapment to turn you into a Slave in the Global Plantation of Slavelandia. You don’t want to be a good citizen and take a toxic drug called a vaccine? No problem, we won’t give you your monthly UBI check. If you are an activist against the authorities they can freeze your account. If they notice you are eating to much Pizza Hut, they can decline any purchases there. They can also keep you from buying anything outside of a radius they determine.

    This is George Orwell’s mega wet-dream. In fact he would be jealous that TPTB took it much further than even HE envisioned it.

    • Gauntlet33 April 7, 2022 at 6:36 pm

      Hey Rodster, I agree except that if I’m not mistaken, George Orwell was a Patriot and condemned and tried to warn us of this nightmare, so I don’t think it’s his wet dream.

    • Chevrus April 11, 2022 at 6:58 am

      This is the very essence of technocracy and neo-feudalism. You will notice that every single event or crisis no matter what it is simply furthers the agenda. Eat less meat, travel less, live like a pauper because ClimateChange, or is it Ukraine or possibly Pandemic. It turns out that all these sacrifices we are being forced to make are precursors to the ‘own nothing, be happy’ tag-line.

      • Gauntlet33 April 11, 2022 at 11:16 am

        Hey Chevrus, good to see you here again.

  • Farmer April 7, 2022 at 1:43 pm

    Agree 100% with what you’re saying except for “the time is short”. Of course I promote preparation, whether it’s now or next year or in two years…

    I believe we have approximately til the end of this year or the beginning of next before the market crashes. I know you don’t believe Elliot Wave analysis, but my belief is we go back up to SPX 5500-6000, and then crash. That should take around a year ish. The crash will issue in a deflationary depression. If I’m correct, then the markets going to 4700 should be a heads up. If I’m wrong, then the markets will continue their correction below 4000.

    Of course raising interest rates crashes markets. But it takes a lag time. Just IMHO…

      I would consider that a very short amount of time.

    • Gauntlet33 April 7, 2022 at 6:40 pm

      Hey Farmer, I’m not a believer in any “analysis” of the stock markets, whether it’s Elliot or otherwise, but I do believe that time is short as you want to stack as much PM now as you can, rid yourself of all debts, and prepare in all other ways that make sense for you. In that sense, no time is long enough as they may pull the plug at any time, and I do think it will be this year.

  • Concerned April 7, 2022 at 1:59 pm

    As FYI, deep plants within the alternative media are coming out now to divide and disrupt. We now have Matt Ehret and Tom Luongo declaring anyone who thinks Russia and China are part of the bigger globalist plan to be morons and wing nuts while they direct people away from these realities, and openly castugating good people like James Corbett. Sad to see that these people are tools of the globalists but the good news is that their own behavior is demonstrating that they play for the opposing team.
    Thanks for the article Brandon. Nice work, and I love the connection to your 2014 piece.

    • Gauntlet33 April 7, 2022 at 6:42 pm

      Interesting. I thought Tom Luongo was a Patriot as I believe he was advocating the purchase of PM as a hedge, but perhaps I haven’t been following him long enough to see through him. BTW, I also loved the connection to the 2014 article, and Brandon, I have to say that you looked like such a young pup back then! 🙂

    • Steve April 8, 2022 at 6:38 am

      I don’t know Ehret, but Luongo has been doing good things. As for Russia and China, they may have paid lip service to Anal Schwab but do you really think they are going to subordinate themselves to the crazy fools at the WEF? The worst that can happen is that they will use the Great Reset for their own ends.

        Brandon Smith April 8, 2022 at 8:47 am

        They already have subordinated themselves. It boggles my mind how much evidence I can show that indicates Russia and China are on board with the Reset agenda and yet people still blindly believe that the East is against it. THIS IS REALITY; THERE IS NO EAST VS GLOBALIST FIGHT. It doesn’t exist. The globalists are ingrained in both nations permanently.

      • Concerned April 8, 2022 at 11:48 am

        “has been” seems an apt description for Luongo after his recent remarks. I always valued his perspective in the past. He’s even pulling “the science is in” card, stating that the discussion regarding Russia/China collusion with the Davos crowd is over.

    • Chevrus April 11, 2022 at 7:14 am

      Yeah I often wonder about that sort of thing: Gatekeeping and Distraction. Lacking the time and interest to decode it all the time, it often comes down to messaging. Kinda like a litmus test that one can hold up and take measure of whatever piece of media being examined. For instance, if an article touts SARS-Cov-2 as the deadliest pandemic ever that require Shanghai Lockdowns then you know they really do not have a clue or are just shilling. I know a very crude example, but you get the idea.

  • Farmer April 7, 2022 at 2:03 pm

    Long enough for another planting of sweet potatoes, cassava, taro and maybe bananas and papayas…

    Curious, Brandon – if we go into a deflationary depression associated with a market crash, how do you think gold and silver will do, monetarily speaking. Gold should hold its value, even after it shoots up this year from inflation. But what do you think about silver? It should also go way s year. But what about after a deflationary collapse? It’s an industrial metal, but it could become a monetary “poor man’s gold”. Just curious.

    • woody188 April 7, 2022 at 2:52 pm

      I know you didn’t ask, but here’s my two cents.

      AU is a store of wealth. So it’s value is only going up relative to the dollar. It’s actual value is stable if there were no market manipulation.

      AG has always been the currency of gentlemen while AU is that of king’s.

      AG could potentially be worth more, as you have pointed out its value for industry. The issue is likely to be how much industry can we expect to persist after the jab die off?

  • JACK SHULL April 7, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Great article, Brandon! Don’t stop with your excellent works!!

  • James April 7, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Hi Brandon,
    Some writers are suggesting that Russia’s move to accept gold for their oil and to peg the ruble to gold could lead to “price discovery” in the gold market. Just as the pandemic was starting, you penned a piece about how physical gold would soon separate from the paper gold market in a spectacular fashion. Do you still believe that? And, if Russia moves forward with this, do you think we could finally see that? Finally, if so, what do you believe the ratio is of paper gold certificates to physical reserves? I am seeing estimates as high as 200 oz of paper gold to every 1 oz of physical in reserve. Is this realistic? Thanks!

    • JustOneGuy April 8, 2022 at 9:36 am

      Howdy James, if I may…
      Eric Sprott (the metals tycoon) and others have assessed the ration of “Paper Gold” to physical repeatedly and conclude that not less than 150 certificates exist for each serialed bar…and all such have indicated that the actual ratio could well be substantially higher.


      • James April 8, 2022 at 10:20 am

        Whoa! Thanks, JOG! I appreciate the reply. I’ve never heard of Eric Sprott, but will definitely look him up. If you have any links or resources to share, that would be greatly appreciated. If not, no worries! Thanks for your answer!

        • JustOneGuy April 8, 2022 at 1:26 pm

          Howdy (again) James!
          Happy to oblige. While I don’t have any accessible links (very, very OLD ones) the Mr Sprott I mentioned plays into a rather hair-raising story from about a decade ago.
          Circa 2012, Mr Sprott (Canadian metals Billionaire, many times over) got to seriously examining the seeming disconnect between physical metal prices and the Paper metals market. The story that unfolded was originally posted over at ZH originally, but since they switched their servers a while back none of my links work anymore.
          To continue…you may or may not be aware that moving Gold out if China Carrie’s the Death Penalty? That is, unless the transfer is at the level of a state sponsored entity, you will be shot for moving other than Gold Jewelry through customs (outbound). So…all the Gold mined in China STAYS in China, which they produce large amounts of but which is never openly declared as Reserves.
          Anyway, Sprott looked at the Nation by Nation balance of Gold and nothing added up…so, he tasked his entire staff to stop their operation and dig back into the inflows/outflows of Gold from North America. Surprisingly, the US tally of all such is – actually – accounted for under the auspices of the Immigration and Naturalization Agency and their records were never adequately transferred from paper to digital going only back to 1991.
          Combining what they could of those along with the equivalent Canadian records an astonishing conclusion was reached.
          As you can imagine combining data from multiple disconnected sources isn’t a straight-forward proposition…but in the most stringent, constrained analysis they concluded that over 4400 TONS of Gold had existed Borth Ameruca during the period.
          IF, however, they broadened the parameters just slightly that total sky-rocketed to over 13,000 TONS. FWIW, FT Knox – at MOST – hold only 8217 tons per existing Treasury accounting.
          My guess is that FT Knox doesn’t have any yellow LEFT…though how they could possibly get it out is a mystery to me.


          • JustOneGuy April 8, 2022 at 5:19 pm

            Oh, I neglected to mention a particularly disturbing point…
            Back at the time of Sprott’s investigation, his Staff concluded that China most likely held reserves in excess of 20,000 TONS of Au. Considering their incessant buying on the open market (both directly and by proxy) what might that now amount to?
            If Russia AND China went tandem and backed their currencies with Gold the obvious result for ALL Western fiat-based currencies would be instantaneous Apocalypse…from a morning to a night, as it were.

          • James April 9, 2022 at 9:40 am

            Thanks so much for all of this, JOG! I think the writing is on the wall. Maybe a self-fulfilling prophesy? But either way, more and more people are talking about this, I’m seeing. And that, in and of itself, could trigger the separation. It looks as though Russia and China prepared for this moment. I’m going to follow their lead. Thanks again for all of this! Still hope Brandon chimes in on this, though, or maybe reviews the paper market situation in new article!

      • Luke April 12, 2022 at 3:16 pm

        Thanks for all the info JOG. I do not have any physical Gold or Silver but have opted to invest in a Gold/Silver Trust. One being Sprotts PSLV and Van Eck OUNZ. Both allow for one to take physical delivery for a fee. I suspect you would recommend I should exercise that right pretty quickly? Handle my dad’s too and he is being a pain in the ass lol. He doesn’t seem to want to take possession and the fees are reasonable from what I understand on both funds. Thanks for the information on Sprott, didn’t know. I assumed most of the ETFs like GLD were paper tigers.

        • Luke April 12, 2022 at 3:31 pm

          To piggyback on my comment which coincides with this one and the one I wrote below, if physical gold gets successfully gets decoupled from the fake paper Gold that will be that should really kick shit into high gear. Need to talk to the old man again. Just curious JOG how safe do you see those trusts being? Ones I described above…..TY

  • Juha April 8, 2022 at 1:37 am

    Yes it is time for parallel society based on real money, gold and silver. But I belive western governments will illegalize of owning precious metals.

    Perhaps better to prepare for barter economy, by creating income streams from various goods and items. If you can provide se&x and drugs and rockandroll everybody loves you. But maybe food, drugs and cosmetics are better barter items. Drugs I mean medicine plants or stock some blister packs of ibuprofein.. but why not distill alcohol. I will plant Virginia Tobacco in my greenhouse this spring here in Finland. Yeah learn to make soap and detergent etc. . these are all needed in the years to come.. in the parallell society.

    PS. Thank you Brandon for this eyeopener..

    i am from argentina, could you tell me what suggestions would you give me to protect my personal savings?
    Here people have always saved in dollars, since the Argentinean peso has never been a backing currency.
    I hope you can give me an opinion that will help me not to be left with nothing.

    thank you very much.

    This is a great post. We may disagree on motives here but it’s probably not important. I don’t believe China or Russia want to ultimately bend the knee to a bunch of cross dressing pedo pimps. Obviously they have played the game over the years to buy time. Xi & Putin are preppers too. Putin knew since at least 2014 the West was coming for him. And yes the goal is to break our reserve status.

    We are in the fight of our lives and not sure either outcome is a win. I have to root for a break of the West’s hegemony. We have become to cocky and too crazy. If Putin & Xi fail to pull this off it’s going to awful tough for Patriots to beat a system that has unlimited currency (digital only soon) to throw at the any problem. They are a monopoly and if they succeed freedom fails.

    If the dollar gets dumped it will be very rough over here. There’s absolutely zero disagreement that time is running short to prepare. My only hope is Globohomo doesn’t have a meltdown and nuke everything. They have had control for a long time. If it looks for a moment BRICS plan to tie money back to commodities (gold & oil) will be successful these megalomaniacs just might unleash hell.

    I am going to tell you I have been seeing these things play out now for several weeks. No scenario is overly comforting. But I for one don’t want to spend the remainder of my life in a technogulag. Liberty minded people could never let it get that far and expect to win thereafter. Digital, programmable currency and ID is the goal. The surveillance and technology is a totalitarians wet dream.

    Perhaps the best option is for the system to fail and we have a Great American Reset. Hope that makes sense and God Speed everyone. The time is nigh!!

      They already have bent the knee, and this reality is key to understanding why I was able to predict years in advance exactly how the East/West situation and the global economic situation has played out so far.

    I’m not convinced they have Brandon. I suspect you are thinking this is strategy of the Globalist; Putin being a stooge or willing accomplice to give excuse to their controlled demolition. The reason I do not is simple; I am watching behind the curtain. I have no TV and no MSM news sites that I visit. There is something the Globalists are scared of and it is apparent by how the media has behaved. Ever since this kicked off they have been going bananas attempting to persuade the Western World to love Ukraine. It’s kind of funny to think our media actually gives a damn about white Slavs killing white Slavs thousands of miles away. That is hilarious if one thinks about it. But it seems to be all hands on deck.

    There’s something organic about their cartoonish behavior IMO. I have thought the entire thing was a setup as well to get Putin to play into their hands. I’m not so sure he is though.

    I guess it really matters not. The destruction of our monetary system rather it is designed by the Globalists or legitimately being carried out by BRICS will be rough either way. I couldn’t agree more the storm clouds have gathered and we are looking at facing several Hurricanes at one time.

    Here’s a great essay. You might have already read it. He came out with another one. Great information on it as well. On the second one he was predicting Globohomo loses their grip and it’s WW3. I don’t have much confidence that if one nuke gets fired via NATO or Russia they aren’t all unleashed. Seems like the biggest Mexican standoff you could imagine.

      Well, if the amount of evidence provided here outlining decades of collusion with Russian and Chinese governments doesn’t convince you, then I suppose nothing will. It seems to me that some people just desperately want to believe that Eastern governments are anti-globalist despite the fact that they are advised by said globalists and institute globalist policies. It was the same with Trump; the fact that Trump was holding hands with the Rothschild family and other globalists throughout his presidency just didn’t phase some folks. They WANT to believe, and so they do. I call it the savior syndrome. If the elites are worried, it’s not because of Putin, or Xi, or Trump – They are worried about the alternative media and the damage we are doing to their agenda, as well as the millions of conservatives that stood up to them over the lockdowns and vax passports. The threat is us. This is the reality that the Putin cheerleaders don’t grasp.

    Not a fan of Putin and certainly not saying you are wrong. I listen to a guy Tom Luongo Gold Goats and Guns. I have heard several podcasts where his guests are more aligned with your take on things. I am merely going off what I see in our media and the zeitgeist’s incessant craziness to convince everyone that Ukraine good, Russia bad.

    There’s no doubt the powers that be are concerned about us. Especially now that even more people have fallen out of the 2 party dichotomy that once held the overwhelming majority onto one side or the other. If I am correct or you are correct I don’t think it matters. There is a caveat in that if you are then all out nuclear war is probably off the table.

    Point is it’s coming either way. You don’t go from this (America today) to “You will own nothing “ in 8 years without some sort of shit storm. And I am not saying that Klaus’s goals will succeed but those are his plans and he obviously takes them seriously along with a roadmap on how to achieve it. And that will be most likely a huge financial upheaval along with a mass kill off (probably disease or famine).

    For now try to stay lean and hard and keep care of the people you love. Actually I hope I’m correct because at least then Globohomo doesn’t control all the destruction haha. Enjoy reading you. Will send a little your way to your Patreon if that’s how you take contributions. Will sign up for the newsletter. Appreciate your thoughts….Lucas

      It matters only in that the liberty movement could be misled in the future to assume that help from either China or Russia is a good idea when it would actually be a play to co-opt the inevitable rebellion and destroy it.
