Ep 89 - The Greatest Economy EVER!
"It's the economy stupid."
That phrase is attributed to James Carville, who in 1992 was the campaign strategist for Bill Clinton. In an interesting 2012 article from the Harvard Political Review, this point is applied to then vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden's debate performance. It was a left-on-left conflagration:
"Our disastrous economic and fiscal situation jeopardizes America’s well-being in a way that no other issue does. Yet our vice president’s most memorable contributions to this last debate concerned religion and bygone Supreme Court decisions."
Coming from the pages of a leftist institution, I find it interesting that the authors name was removed from this article "at their request" -- possibly because they were receiving backlash for breaking ranks and pointing out the obvious:
"If we don’t make fixing our economy and changing our fiscal outlook the most important issue in governance, complete economic, military, and social collapse is not an unrealistic consequence."
In fact, many believe it's all part of the plan. Economic reset, at the global level, is an essential element of The Great Reset and the transition to the New World Order -- the one Biden recently assured us is coming. Keep in mind, these concerns about our economic stability were being voiced when the national debt was a mere $16 trillion dollars. In the ten years since, the burden of debt has nearly doubled, jumping to some $30 trillion dollars today.
To put that in perspective, that is nearly $100,000 dollars of debt for every man, woman, and child in America. But even that doesn't really help us grasp the enormity of these numbers.
How about this: If we were to go back in time and walk back the clock say 30,000,000,000,000 seconds -- where would we be? Crunching the numbers, we'd time warp back more than 950 thousand years ago -- shortly after the dinosaurs, but according to historians, still some 850,000 years before the neanderthals were battling with modern humans for global dominance.
Here's another fun fact: There are nearly 8 billion people on the planet... which sounds like a big number, until you realize that it's only 0.027% of 30,000,000,000,000.
The point is, these numbers are nearly incomprehensible. How does this information connect to the situation in Ukraine? Let's survey some of the financial sentiment that's out there:
The Economic War on Russia -- "The United States and its allies have inflicted massive economic damage on Russia without firing a single shot," and these "collective economic sanctions" demonstrate the "deep security benefits of globalization." Here we find clues as to how the globalists intend to destroy the "existing economic order" by using economic warfare.
Only NATO Can Win the Economic War -- Done right, claim the globalists, economic war "will be able to preserve the benefits of globalization for everyone." To achieve this, NATO needs to "develop doctrines" and "project economic and financial power" in order to enhance their "coercive powers" and collectively fund the rapidly advancing global society.
Russian Sanctions Will Shake the World -- Worldwide consequences of a "mutating economic war" have just begun. Excluding Russia from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, banning them from using the SWIFT financial system, will "hasten a new era for global monetary" solutions.
Meanwhile, fertilizer shortages, food shortages, soaring fuel prices, supply chain issues, and bare shelves, are hitting us all right here at home. There are many lessons we can learn from this situation, but what I want to point out is the unsustainable nature of the current situation.
Burdened by astronomical debt, our economy is set for catastrophic collapse. Many other countries are in the same boat. Is this just coincidence? Or, perhaps, is that all part of the plan? When we see headlines about economic war, global monetary solutions, and the New World Order, is there a connection? Of course there is a connection -- that's a rhetorical question.
Economic collapse consolidates power and money into the hands of the elites. This is precisely what they want, which is why we can be certain that it's coming. The reality is, our economy is way beyond fixing, and the value of our money will continue to dwindle toward worthless.
It may sound bleak, but there is another way. What if our well-being was not contingent upon global supply chains? What if our money wasn't being regulated by global bankers? What if we really could create a parallel economy that put the kibosh on central bank ambitions?
There are a lot of what-ifs, but there is one thing we can know for sure. If we want to understand what's coming, we need only recall those prescient words: "It's the economy stupid."
