Critical Thinking in Troubled Times

Posted by M. C. on April 18, 2022

As a sign of the times, this week I witnessed a 40-something year old black cop at a gas station speaking to the 50-something white station owner when the cop said, “I am so sick of this fear bull*@$t, as soon as they put the Covid bottle of fear back on the shelf, they take the Ukraine fear bottle off and put it in front of people and yell lies at them until they are actually afraid!  Don’t people know that all this BS only benefits the people trying to control you!”

Critical Thinking in Troubled Times
The Thinker, Rodin 

In a matter of about a month, the United States federal government silently and unilaterally exited from a two-year war on an illusory, and perhaps illusionary, virus, and pivoted toward fomenting and provoking a kinetic war with a nuclear-armed Russia.  While many people in the U.S. unquestioningly and dutifully removed their masks and started using the Ukrainian flag emoji on their iPhones and social media feeds, the rest of us are left with trying to discern between whether we are on the precipice of a kinetic World War III or simply witnessing a bankrupt and petrodollar-dependant Leviathan in its death throes.

Or perhaps both.  

As a sign of the times, this week I witnessed a 40-something year old black cop at a gas station speaking to the 50-something white station owner when the cop said, “I am so sick of this fear bull*@$t, as soon as they put the Covid bottle of fear back on the shelf, they take the Ukraine fear bottle off and put it in front of people and yell lies at them until they are actually afraid!  Don’t people know that all this BS only benefits the people trying to control you!”  He was wearing a mask strapped absurdly far under his chin.  When asked why he was wearing a mask, he said:  “So I can ask everyone who two weeks ago was asking me to pull up my mask why they aren’t wearing theirs anymore!  I’m going to keep wearing it like this until they wake up!”  

COVID LESSONS AND CURRENT CONDITIONS

Acknowleding this reality, the CDC is now rapidly revising its statistics, admitting that “the pandemic” was a non-event health-wise.  The brilliant saints who recognized at the outset that “Covid” was always the 2020 Seasonal Flu dressed up and repackaged for purposes of maintaining political control have now been vindicated.  The pandemic narrative was and is a story, a story that appears to have been authored in order to distract the public from the pain and discomfort associated with an economic decoupling from China.  It is now fairly clear that the Powers That Be (PTB) used the pandemic story to hold, gain, and consolidate economic and political power through an economic crisis that they knew was already upon us in January of 2020.  

Although much ground has been lost in terms of loss of personal liberty in the last two years, much has also been gained in terms of accurate risk information–exposing precisely who the pandemic plotters and promoters were and are.  The political and business leaders who were complicit in fostering the pandemic narrative are not qualified to lead going forward.  As compelled vaccination injuries manifest and it is exposed and recognized that there never was a federal or state law or any other legitimate legal authority that would compel innocent and healthy people to submit to a dangerous, Nuremberg Code-violating experimental drug therapy, these political and business leaders must, and inevitably will, be removed from positions of power.  We could not agree more with Dr. Robert Malone who advocates that these people be outed, removed from power, and monitored to ensure that they never be afforded the public’s trust in the future.  As just two examples of the plans of the Davos clique, both the CEO of UPS, Carol Tome, and the CEO of Wells Fargo, Charlie Scharf, are World Economic Forum alums who were shoe-horned into their positions in late 2019.  I suspect there are dozens, if not hundreds, of people like this.  

Looking at the past two years with vision unclouded by fearful messages pulsating on every screen, the facts confirm that “Covid” was much more of an economic event than a health event.  In January of 2020, before the first “case” allegedly appeared in the U.S.,we saw midnight videos from workers at the Port of Los Angeles showing that the port mysteriously had almost no shipping containers.  We felt then that something was afoot.   Also in January of 2020, we heard from U.S. CEO’s in Davos that U.S.-China trade had broken down and U.S. exports had come to a standstill.  In March 2020, before the pandemic narrative had gotten its sea legs, we saw the Federal Reserve throw out its playbook, violate its charter and federal law, and engage in direct purchases of U.S. Treasuries and unprecedented money printing.  Now an ever-increasing plurality of people (including the cop at the gas station) understands the psychological game being played when they hear a maskless Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock and World Economic Forum graduate, tell us that globalization is over and that the pandemic caused economic decoupling with China.  

Going forward, we will be more aware and look for and seek to identify the “unseen” and potentially very dangerous and destabilizing second-order effects of things like lockdowns, and PPP money printing.  Now add to this list military provocations intended to interfere with trade relationships between the EU and Russia and China and, perhaps most relevant, the very real threats to the international petrodollar system caused by U.S. seizure of Russia’s Forex reserves.  If you want to understand why the Russian threat to the dollar is important, read this and this, and most importantly, this.  In short, Putin’s so-far successful attempts to demand Russian roubles for Russian gas and Saudi Arabia’s coincident agreement to accept Chinese yuan for its oil rather than the U.S. dollars has the potential to cause an international run on the dollar.  The second order domestic effect of this roubles-for-gas cause may mean significant, long-term inflation, and short to medium term stagflation as people and governments holding internationally weakened petrodollars bring them back to the U.S. to buy things that will hold value better than the dollars themselves.  

What concerns us most about the recent events in the Russia-Ukraine drama is that the hopelessly outmatched people leading the U.S. have unwittingly taken actions that have resulted in petrodollar destablization and that this will result in an unexpectedly fast decline in U.S. living standards.   We are also concerned that the PTB/Davos crowd will do something even more rash and reckless in an attempt to distract us from this reality and/or present a “false cause” for the domestic economic destabilization that they have created by stealing Russian Forex reserves.  Whatever the case, the Keynesian fiction of a “consumption-based economy” is likely over.  Consuming more than we produce is also therefore over.  This will be a very difficult for everyone because all of us have “benefitted”–really been made weaker and more fragile–by an unstable monetary that has lost domestic trust (see the price of Bitcoin) and now has lost international trust.  For decades, foreigners, particulary China, Japan, and Russia have been subsidizing the U.S. federal government and U.S. living standards by buying U.S. Treasuries that the U.S. has never had the capability to pay off.  Those days are over.  

A final concern–a concern that exists only because we have witnessed in the pandemic narrative that our political and business leaders have no allegiance to the United States, its people, or the Constitution–is that the PTB use dollar destabilization to conduct a controlled demolition of the domestic U.S. economy.  This would allow fiat money insiders–the same people who benefitted from the 2008 financial bailouts and now include the many Davos/WEF-installed CEOs–to be first in line for the newly printed money and buy up U.S. assets for pennies on the dollar much like Russian oligarchs did following the December 25, 1991 lowering of the flag of the Soviet Union.  

This is already happening.  Just as in the post-2008 financial crisis, bailed-out Wall Street cronies are using first-in-line-at-the-new-money-trough to buy up U.S. assets.  Goldman Sachs has a subsidiary named MTGLQ (“mortgage liquidator”) that is in the process of buying improperly securitized mortgages from Fannie and Freddie and then stealing the homes of people who were pushed out of the job market by Covid.  All well under the mainstream media radar.  Nothing to see here.  Don’t look at your neighbor’s house being stolen by banksters, rather pay attention to the failed comedian dressed up in fatigues in front of a green screen playing the part of “President” of Ukraine.
