The Dollar Collapse is now in motion

Money Saving Tips

The decline of a currency's world reserve status is often a long process rife with denials. There are numerous economic "experts" out there that have been dismissing any and all warnings of dollar collapse for years. They just don't get it, or they don't want to get it. The idea that the U.S. currency could ever be dethroned as the defacto global trade mechanism is impossible in their minds.

One of the key pillars keeping the dollar in place as the world reserve is its petro-status, and this factor is often held up as the reason why the Greenback cannot fail. The other argument is that the dollar is backed by the full force of the U.S. military, and the U.S. military is backed by the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve. In other words, the dollar is backed by... the dollar; it's a very circular and silly position.

These sentiments are not only pervasive among mainstream economists, but they are also all over the place within the alternative media. I suspect the main hang-up of liberty movement analysts is the notion that the globalist establishment would ever allow the dollar or the U.S. economy to fail. Isn't the dollar system their "golden goose"?

The answer is no, it is not their golden goose. The dollar is just another stepping stone toward their goal of a one-world economy and a one-world currency. They have killed the world reserve status of other currencies in the past, why wouldn't they do the same to the dollar?

Globalist white papers and essays specifically outline the need for a diminished role for the U.S. currency as well as a decline in the American economy in order to make way for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and a new global currency system controlled by the IMF. I warned about this years ago, and my position has always been that the derailment of the dollar would likely start with the end of its petro status.

In 2017 I noted that the sudden power shift over to crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman signaled a change in Saudi Arabia's relationship with the U.S. I stated that:

To understand how drastic this coup has been, consider this — for decades Saudi Kings maintained political balance by doling out vital power positions to separate, carefully chosen successors. Positions such as Defense Minister, the Interior Ministry and the head of the National Guard. Today, Mohammed Bin Salman controls all three positions. Foreign policy, defense matters, oil and economic decisions and social changes are now all in the hands of one man.

The rise of MBS was backed by something called the Public Investment Fund (PIF), a fund comprised of trillions of dollars supplied by globalists within Carlyle Group (Bush family, etc.), Goldman Sachs, Blackstone and Blackrock. MBS garnered the favor of the globalists for one specific reason. He openly backed their Vision For 2030, a plan for the dismantling of "fossil fuel" based energy and the implementation of carbon controls. Yes, that's right, the head of Saudi Arabia is backing the end of oil, and part of that includes the end of the dollar as the petro currency.

In 2017 I stated that:

I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been the symbiosis between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been the single most important key to the dollar remaining as the petrocurrency from the very beginning.

I believed that the threat to petro status would ultimately be spurred on by a proxy war between East and West. I noted that:

World economic war is the real name of the game here, as the globalists play puppeteers to East and West. It is a geopolitical crisis they will have created to engineer public support for a solution they predetermined.

Back then I thought that such a proxy war would be initiated in the Middle East, possibly in Iran. However, it's clear that Ukraine is the powder keg the globalists have chosen, at least for now.

In the years since I made these predictions, the relationship between Saudi Arabia, Russia and China has grown very close. Arms deals and energy deals are becoming a mainstay of trade, and this has led to a quiet but steady distancing of the Saudis from the dollar. This past week, the dominoes were set in motion for dollar collapse when Saudi Arabia announced at Davos that they are now willing to trade oil in alternative currencies.

In response, Xi Jinping pledged to ramp up efforts to promote the use of the Chinese yuan in energy deals. This falls in line with another article I wrote in 2017 in which I how conflict with Eastern nations (China and Russia) would be exploited to create a catalyst for the end of the dollar's petro status.

The importance of the Saudi announcement cannot be overstated; this is the beginning of the end of the dollar. The dollar's world reserve status is largely dependent on its petro-status. Without one, you cannot have the other. This is almost the exact same dynamic that led to the implosion of the British Sterling decades ago as the global petro currency which resulted in the rise of the dollar to take its place.

This time, though, it will not be a single foreign currency that takes on the role of world reserve, it will be a basket currency system controlled by the IMF called Special Drawing Rights, along with a single global digital currency that is yet to be named but is now under development.

The consequences of the loss of reserve status will be devastating to the U.S. economy. It is the only glue holding our system together. The ability to defer inflation by exporting it overseas is a superpower only the U.S. enjoys. The Fed can print money perpetually if it wants to in order to fund the government or prop up U.S. markets, as long as foreign central banks and corporate banks are willing to absorb dollars as a tool for global trade. If the dollar is no longer the primary international trade mechanism, the trillions upon trillions of dollars the Fed has printed from thin air over the years will all come flooding back to the U.S. through various avenues, and hyperinflation (or hyperstagflation) will be the result. It would be a veritable disaster.

This dynamic is already in play, as foreign holders of U.S. debt and dollars have been dumping them at a record pace since 2017. The process continues at a time when the Federal Reserve is cutting its balance sheet and raising interest rates, which means there is no longer a buyer of last resort.

The effects of the decline of the dollar may not be immediately felt or become obvious for another year or two. What will happen is consistent inflation on top of the high prices we are already dealing with. Meaning, the Federal Reserve will continue to hold interest rates higher, and prices will barely budge, or they will climb in spite of monetary tightening. Even in the face of a major recessionary contraction, which I predict will be triggered starting in April, prices will still remain higher.

All the while the mainstream media and government economists will say they have "no idea" why inflation is so persistent, and that "nobody could have seen this coming." Some of us saw it coming, and it's because we accept the reality that the dollar's days are numbered.

To truth and knowledge,
