be a far worse year on several fronts...
Economic centralization is the ultimate form of organized
conspiratorial power, because it allows a small group of people to dictate the
terms of trade, and therefore dictate the terms of each person's individual
survival. For example, the Federal Reserve as a banking entity has free rein to
assert policy controls that can disrupt the very fabric of the U.S. economy and
the buying power of our currency. They can arbitrarily create trillions of
dollars from thin air causing inflation, or arbitrarily raise interest rates
and crash stock markets. And according to former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan,
they answer to no one, including the U.S. government.
I have started to see a new narrative being spread within the
mainstream media platforms as well as alternative media platforms suggesting
that the Fed is necessary because it is working to "counter" the
agenda of Biden and the Democrats and is "protecting" America from
the schemes of the U.N. and European interests.
This is perhaps the most moronic theory I've ever heard, but it
makes sense that the central bank and its puppets would be trying to plant the
notion that the Fed is some kind of "hero" secretly battling on our
behalf. The money elites within the Fed and associated with it have over the
past 14 years inflated perhaps the largest financial bubble in the history of
the world. They did this with bailouts, they did this with QE, they did this
with COVID pandemic checks and loans, and now the bubble is about to pop. They
know it is about to pop because they want it to pop.
As I have warned for years, the Fed has been staging massive
sabotage of the U.S. economy. Why? Because the U.S. economy must be diminished
in order to make way for the "Great Reset," a term created by the
World Economic Forum to describe an unprecedented paradigm shift in the global
economy and how it operates, and a complete upending of society. The end game is openly admitted.

governance controlled by a league of corporate partners working in concert with
This is not a conspiracy theory; this is a conspiracy reality.
This is an undeniable fact.
The Fed does not care about the U.S. economy, its loyalty is to a
global agenda, and it takes its marching orders from a consortium of other
banking institutions called the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). This
is how global central banking policies are coordinated to either work in
harmony to create artificial stability, or to work in conflict, creating
artificial crisis events.
The truth is, the foundations of global governance already exist,
but what the establishment does not have is public acceptance and submission to
their authority. What the banks want is to create a crisis so frightening that
the masses will run to them, begging for help. Once a population begs their captors for
relief or resolution and it is given, it's far less likely that the people will
revolt against those captors in the future.
Psychologically, the central banks and the establishment elites
are trying to create mass Stockholm Syndrome, and we are seeing it already with
the Federal Reserve being painted as the "shield" holding back the
tide of economic ruin that they actually engineered.
The initial stages of the Great Reset have already been launched.
With the economic bubble expanded to incredible levels, the Fed is not staging
an aggressive implosion using interest rate hikes into economic weakness. There
are multiple problems that come with the current dynamic:
With stagflation, normal credit market interventions do not
necessarily work right away. As we saw recently with the official CPI print
rising despite the Fed's rate hikes, price is not going to go down that easily.
During the last stagflation event 40 years ago, the Fed raised rates to around
20 percent before prices finally stopped rising, and back then the U.S. did not
have $31 trillion in debt, nor did it just print over $8 trillion in the span
of two years. Rates are likely to go much higher than many people expect.
Treasury Bond Crisis
The Fed replaced foreign investors like Japan and China as the
primary buyers of U.S. government Treasury bonds years ago. Now, with the Fed
cutting purchases, reducing its balance sheet and raising rates, who is going to
buy all that U.S. debt and keep the government funded? Well, the answer is no
one. For now, foreign purchases are enough to give a semblance of stability,
but with geopolitical tensions rising it's only a matter of time before
countries like China dump their T-bond and dollar holdings completely. Then,
the dollar's world reserve status will come into question and inflation becomes
an even greater threat.
Stock Market Spiral
Without the Federal Reserve as the backstop fueling corporate
share buybacks with cheap money, stocks will continue to slide. They'll jump
every now and then on rumors that the Fed will pivot away from tightening, and
when the Fed doesn't, stocks will start sliding again. Without stimulus and
near-zero rates, there is no hope for equities beyond the occasional jawboning.
The Fed has the ability to slow down or speed up all of the
conditions above, and so far, they appear to be speeding things up. We
obviously can't rely on the Biden administration to do anything about these
problems; in all likelihood, Biden and his handlers are joyful at the prospect
of the inevitable calamity. No one in government is trying to do anything
legitimate to stop the landslide and no one is trying to prepare Americans for
Thus, it is up to individuals to prepare and warn their friends
and family, but what about a larger organized response?
Despite numerous claims that conservatives would "do
nothing" to stop the rise of medical fascism in the name of the COVID
pandemic, almost half the states in the U.S. stood their ground against the
mandates and the push for vaccine passports. If this had not happened, America
would look like China does today with endless lockdowns and draconian tracking
apps. I don't think enough people understand just how close we came to losing
every freedom we have left. We were on the doorstep of an Orwellian hell, and
probably civil war.
The red state defiance of COVID restrictions represented an
organized action at the state and interstate levels. What if these states did
the same thing in the face of the economic crisis?
Without organization at the state level to create alternatives to
the mainstream economy, the plight of the public becomes much more daunting and
dangerous. Rather than trying to start completely from scratch, there are
solutions that can be pursued at the state level to help mitigate the disaster.
States like Texas, Utah and Louisiana (Dem controlled) all have
legislation in place to utilize gold and silver as legal tender. Such efforts
need to be expanded to as many states as possible, and the list of alternatives
needs to grow. Gold, silver, copper, and other commodities like oil,
electricity, wheat and grains could be used to back a state-recognized currency
system. Is it constitutional? Not technically, but the federal government
violated the constitutional money creation mandate over a century ago when they
allowed the institution of the Federal Reserve. The system is already broken.
If states were to offer commodity-backed currencies in parallel
with the dollar, then they could actually stave off price inflation and
possibly reverse it. This can't be achieved by only one or two states, though.
It would have to be organized among multiple states with multiple trade
agreements in place.
North Dakota has its own state-run bank that provides credit
opportunities specifically to ND locals and ND businesses. It has operated
successfully for decades. Why has no other state adopted this model? Why should
we rely on banks that are all tied back to corporate conglomerates that want to
Localized Trade Alternatives
States should be utilizing the resources within their own borders
to generate jobs and economic prosperity. Why are states and citizens in those
states allowing the federal government under Biden to dictate the terms of how
they grow their economies?
Leftists will claim that resource management needs to be
supervised by federal agencies, but why? These people have consistently proven
themselves to be incompetent and destructive. Why should they be trusted to
control our ability to expand in our own states?
The only hope any state has to weather the coming storm is to
localize production and manage its resources to kick-start trade. Local
production would act as a redundancy should the mainstream economy collapse
(which it will). States don't need Biden's permission to make this happen, they
can and should act now before it's too late.
