Inflation, drones, BRICS, Dubai and more
Many years ago the president of Toyota said there are only 3 sources of wealth for a country, Mining, Manufacturing and Farming. I have gone into countless abandoned factory buildings over the past 40 years to convert them to residential, commercial and services uses. Yes the Western economies are in trouble. This has been coming for a long time. In addition the beaurocratic red tape in Canada is strangling construction of new buildings and Environmental laws require enormous amounts of paperwork to permit something as simple as a spray paint line that ultimately they are going to permit. Sad for me to stand witness to the decline of the western civilization. I hope the governments have some hidden plan to avoid the possible impending meltdown of government finances.
I love your Global News Substack!! It’s always informative, on point and helpful. A great guide through the jungle of wake and woke media news. Thank you for this!
The drone swarm video gives me a whole new outlook on American capabilities. Awesome video by the way. I’m sure our technologies are even more advanced than shown. This makes me think that China may not want drone swarms reigning down on their navy if they were to attack Taiwan. Makes the dollar a bigger target for them to take America out. As for new mRNA vaccine technologies I think big pharma will have a hard time getting a group of unaware people to take another bite of their poison apple. J.Goodrich
Depressing... oy. I can tell you that inflation in Uganda is MUCH more than the 10-ish% per that tracker. I have a nonprofit and have worked there since January 2009. Our food budget went from $1000/mo in Jan to $1500 in APRIL last year, and we that's with cutting a lot of fresh foods and more expensive starches like rice. Prices are even higher now. Rents in the slum have gone up at least 50%, sometimes over 100%, because taxes in Kampala have been raised so much to try to pay for things the city wants to pay for. This is devastating for the very many poor in the country.
I'd bite on an apple, but your post contains too many diverse fruits. Might comment after I have lunch, feed the horses, vacuum and ponder how I feel about some or all of it. A day is just a fast blur at my age. An hour no longer exists.
I'm so thankful I never received any of the jabs and I've stopped taking the flu shot as well. I can't wait to watch this, thank you so much!
Google is using Dr. Malone's picture to thumbnail misinformation fact checking on google news. Do they really think I am so dumb as to believe a false story just because they used @rwmalonemd profile photo to lead into it? Not a chance. I just can't believe they would stoop so low. https://twitter.com/angelinehuck/status/1628849549178736641?t=Jm9YbPET3y9fTWVNfrzUpA&s=19
Just watch the movie "Rollover" (from the 80s) for a glimpse at what happens when the dollar is no longer the currency of choice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollover_(film)
Thank you for sharing the 'get prepared' news. Not very heartening to put it mildly. Better to know than be surprised. Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about the vax issues. Have to wonder if problems with human vax may lead to accelerated animal and plant vaccine development.
Frustrating that such bright peoples have yet to come up with a way to get rid of/overcome toxic leadership. Would that we could send the lot on a trip to Mars.....
Regarding the de-dollarisation story, my advice would be never to trust an article written about fiat currencies on a crypto website. One thing holding back de dollarisation in China is their capital controls and they are never going to give up on those. There are more and more countries adopting bilateral trade deals whereby they agree to trade in each others currencies. This is not going to rush to anybody selling dollars if the trade flows are matched. Furthermore trade flows are swamped by the size of capital market transactions and there’s not much sign of the world being weaned off the dollar for those. If a country wants to issue bonds to international investors it is still likely going to have to use the dollar.
On the CBDC issue, I have not seen any plans they they will do more than partially replace cash. They are not going to replace commercial banks or the private payment systems like Visa or Mastercard. Most individuals will continue to have most of their assets in real estate, stocks, bonds, farmland, commercial bank deposits and mutual funds.
One HUGE fly in the ointment of the so-called Five Emerging Economies, i.e., Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa "dumping" their US dollars, is that the paper (fiat) dollar is NO LONGER backed by GOLD and therefore UN REDEEMABLE.
Would Communist China really just kiss off the gazillion dollars they have accrued due to trade SURPLUS $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ with the US since 1975? And rely on WHAT? the Yen? Ruble?
But IF so-called "digital currency" becomes the (global) means of (monetary) salvation, a GLOBAL tyranny and collapse of civilization the likes of which cannot even be imagined will BE "reality".
You know, there are anumber of historical precedents to be mindful of concerning swarm technology, however the most accurate & effective can be found within the four gospels.
Jesus commissioned a large number of disciples to heal, cleanse & cast, then baptize as countermeasure to the legions (swarms?) of demonic spirits which had invaded Judea/Canaan way back at Gen 6. Both sides in this conflict were decentralized to the degree of conducting autonomous ops, both demonstrate a sophisticated model for deconfliction with the world around them, utilizing propoganda (truth, lies). The similarities are not accidental
I can understand people being glad to be old enough to know we will be dead before the big spin is full tilt. The native peoples always said to make decisions knowing what the impact would be 7 generations later. Huh, not for quite some time (if ever) do people plan for the health and well being of the next generations! (except people like you). Since I have experienced the reality of re-incarnation, no one gets out of here without being subject to seeing the effects of their deeds. Small comfort, but non- the- less satisfying. We are held accountable to ourselves and every one we meet and do life with.
Morris Berman published "Dark Ages America: The Final Stages of Empire" in 2008
He argues that the American empire will collapse and there is no way to stop it.
He also notes that when an empire is on the way down they choose leaders that hasten the collapse. If you are a democrat, Trump fits the bill. If you are a republican, Biden fits the bill. If you are other, both fit the bill.
I see the Ukraine war hastening the move to a multipolar world. Shooting yourself in the foot.
The common denominator in most contemporary analysis seems to be that globalism is here to stay, such that nationalism had fallen out of favor and there is no in-between solution, or compromise going forward. It's not difficult to show in scripture that nationalism is God's plan for mankind, while globalism equates to man's rebellion. It's a bit more challenging to discern how quickly any previous political transitions (in the scripture) may have occurred, BUT the current age (grace) and the age immediately preceding (law) BOTH transitioned over a 40-year period (a single generation). BOTH transitions began when God revealed hidden wisdom to one man, BOTH transitions ended upon the death of one man.
Truth to keep in mind.
For the “rich” - Dubai’s vision, build it and they will come - temperate weather with ocean. Now, for the ‘wealthy’ realms with life sustaining resources. Bush dynasty - 2005 purchase of 300,000 acres in Chaco, Paraguay. Their land sits on a part of the Guarani Aquifer System. This groundwater reservoir is the largest [renewable freshwater] resource in the world, with an expanse of more than 1.2 million square kilometers and a volume of 40,000 cubic kilometers of water. Next door is Bolivia’s abundant gas reserves. Soros dynasty – 990,000 acres on one of the world’s largest agricultural reserves, the Argentine Pampas. Does Dubai have fresh water, natural gas, oil, and agricultural land?
