Gold Oil Dollars Russia and China: The Death of the Petro-Dollar

  • Gold Oil Dollars Russia and China: The Death of the Petro-Dollar
    by F. William Engdahl, https://journal-neo.org/
    The 1944 Bretton Woods international monetary system as it has developed to the present is become, honestly said, the greatest hindrance to world peace and prosperity. Now China, increasingly backed by Russia—the two great Eurasian nations—are taking decisive steps to create a very viable alternative to the tyranny of the US dollar over the world trade and finance. Wall Street and Washington are not amused, but they are powerless to stop it.

    Shortly before the end of the Second World War, the US Government, advised by the major international banks of Wall Street, drafted what many mistakenly believe was a new gold standard. In truth, it was a dollar standard in which every other member currency of the International Monetary Fund countries fixed the value of their currency to the dollar. In turn, the US dollar was fixed then to gold at a value equal to 1/35th of an ounce of gold. At the time Washington and Wall Street could impose such a system as the Federal Reserve held some 75% of all world monetary gold as a consequence of the war and related developments. Bretton Woods established the dollar which then became the reserve currency of world trade held by central banks.

    Death Agony of a Defective Dollar Standard
    By the end of the 1960’s with soaring US Federal budget deficits from costs of the Vietnam War and other foolish spending, the dollar standard began to show its deep structural flaws. A recovered Western Europe and Japan no longer needed billions of US dollars for financing reconstruction. Germany and Japan had become world class export economies with higher efficiency than US manufacturing owing to a growing obsolescence of US basic industry from steel to autos and basic infrastructure. Washington should then have significantly devalued the dollar against gold in order to correct the growing world trade imbalance. Such a dollar devaluation would have boosted US manufacturing export earnings and reduced the trade imbalances. It would have been a huge pus for the real US economy. However for Wall Street banks it spelled huge losses. So instead, the Johnson and then Nixon administrations printed more dollars and in effect exported inflation to the world.


    The central banks of especially France and Germany reacted to the deafness in Washington by demanding US Federal Reserve gold for their US dollar reserves at $35 per unce s in the Bretton Woods 1944 agreement. By August 1971 the redemption of gold for inflated US dollars had reached a crisis point where Nixon was advised by a senior Treasury official, Paul Volcker, to rip up the Bretton Woods system.

    By 1973 gold was allowed by Washington to trade freely and was no longer the backing of a sound US dollar. Instead, an engineered oil price shock in October 1973 that sent the dollar price of oil higher by 400% in a matter of months, created what Henry Kissinger then called the petrodollar.

China Dollar Dump Means Hyperinflation – Chris Martenson

  • China Dollar Dump Means Hyperinflation – Chris Martenson
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Resource analyst and futurist Chris Martenson says everyone should be taking notice of our “dangerous markets.” At the center of the danger zone is the declining U.S. dollar.  Martenson explains, “We are talking about a steady erosion of the dollar as a reserve currency.  I think that is most likely.  The only thing that could make that really go fast is some kind of war.  The United States and China, we got to keep our eye on this because Trump has been threatening a trade war with China.  China responded and said if you do that, we may dump the dollar. . . . So, there is all this trade and financial back and forth and maybe even actual war at some point. . . . China has the ability to really impact the dollar in a big way on the world stage.  We better hope it does not come to that because a slow erosion we can adjust to; a quick erosion is going to really roil the markets and maybe blow a few of them up.”

    Martenson contends the U.S. could see hyperinflation in a short time if China “dumps the dollar.” Martenson explains, “The way that works is let’s say they want to unload $500 billion on some Tuesday morning.  Who is going to buy that $500 billion?  Who is on the other side of that trade?  Well, if there are not enough people bidding for those dollars, the price has to fall until you find enough people to absorb those, and the dollar would fall in value against all other sorts of other things such as other currencies, oil, gold, silver and all those things. . . . We would be looking for a paired event.  What we would be looking for is interest rates starting to rise on Treasuries and the dollar starting to fall in value in value against a variety of things.  Once we see those two things, we know we have a financial war or a monetary war. . . . That’s what blows up the derivatives market.  That’s what makes difficulties for traders.  That’s what makes the high frequency computers say I don’t like this and bolt and instantly evaporate from the markets.”

Rob Kirby: Dark Dollars Propping Up Failing System. Silver The Most Underpriced Asset on the Planet

  • Rob Kirby: Dark Dollars Propping Up Failing System. Silver The Most Underpriced Asset on the Planet
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Forensic macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby says few people have any idea how many “dark dollars” are out there. Kirby explains, “When you start talking about how many dollars there are in the world, nobody really knows.  I would suggest to you the real quantity of dollars in the world is much greater than anyone imagines.  A lot of these dollars are ‘dark,’ and they are held in the bowels of institutions like the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF).  So, the world may be cruising along thinking the total number of dollars in the world is ‘X,’ but the true amount in the world, if you count the dark ones, might be three or four times ‘X’.  This really means the money supply is much bigger than anyone understands or believes.”  Kirby contends that the so-called “dark dollars” are being used to prop up the Treasury bond market.  The ESF simply buys the debt and essentially hides it.


    Then there is the price rigging in the gold and silver markets. Kirby says, “To sell a Bitcoin, you must possess a Bitcoin.  If you have one Bitcoin, you cannot sell 500 of them.  That’s plain and simple.  This goes for JP Morgan or Citi Bank or Goldman Sachs, they can only sell Bitcoin that they own.  In the gold market, they can sell all the gold they want.  They can sell gold that doesn’t exist and will never be mined.”  Kirby points out this is how the big banks suppress the price of gold and silver.

    Kirby contends the U.S. dollar is a “rigged” game. Is it about to be knocked out by blockchain technology?  Kirby says, “Absolutely.  What the cryptos offer that the dollar doesn’t is decentralization.  It’s the centralized U.S. fiat dollar and the dollar standard that requires everybody in the world, who wants to buy commodities in international markets, must first purchase U.S. dollars.  Crypto currencies bypass the dollar and allow for transmission of ownership in a very rapid, cost effective manner.  They bypass the dollar completely.  What this really means is with the uptake and accelerated use of cryptos, countries will require less and less dollars in their reserve accounts to purchase the goods they want and need in the international marketplace.  What happens when people don’t need dollars anymore?  The dollars return home.  They come back to America . . . which ultimately means inflation will come to America.”

Warning: Bitcoin to Collapse | Alasdair MacLeod

  • FinanceAndLiberty.com Published on Sep 11, 2017
    Bitcoin is not money and never will be, says London Analysts Alasdair MacLeod. MacLeod explains why cryptocurrencies are a bubble. Either the bubble will collapse by itself or governments will destroy cryptocurrencies. But the general public hasn’t yet jumped on the cryptocurrency bandwagon. “When the ordinary man in the street starts playing, you know it’s time to get out,” he says. As for governments putting a stop to cryptocurrencies, MacLeod says it’ll be years before there’s an international agreement on such a matter.

Central Bankers Engineer all Wars

  • Central Bankers Engineer all Wars
    by https://www.henrymakow.com/
    War is a racket.
    In his 1912 book, Philip Dru, AdministratorColonel Edward Mandell House has a character say of the US Civil War: “Cynical Europe said that the North would have it appear that a war had been fought for human freedom, whereas it was fought for money.”

    It was fought “for money” but not in the sense of accumulating it. Like the US Civil War, many wars are fought to force all nations to accept the Rothschild credit monopoly. 

    “Money” is virtual, a mental concept, an accounting system. Our currency is like a coupon. Money is a medium of exchange. The Central Banking Cartel creates it out of thin air, as a debt to itself, something our government could do interest and debt-free. But our governmentbelongs to them, not us. The aim of the New World Order is to expand this racket into a totalpolitical, cultural and economic monopoly. This is the real meaning of Communism. This is why our national, racial, religious and gender identities will always be under occult assault.

    (Both Trump and Kim Jung-Un are Freemasons.)
    In this excerpt from The Unseen Hand (1985) Ralph Epperson described how the bankers started the American Civil War to force the US to accept their bank. Our society is being consumed by a cancer. A faction of every religion, nation or people has been infected. They have gone over to Satan and assumed the identity of their group. They are Freemasons, i.e. opportunists and traitors willing to enslave us for personal advancement. We have been unwittingly inducted into their multifaceted satanic cult, i.e. Freemasonry, Jewish Cabalism, and are becoming their mental slaves. 


    In 1909, Paul Copin Albancelli wrote: “Masons repeat what they have heard from the preachers of the Occult Powers: the journalist ..the publisher..the pornographer…the professor…The state of mind created and filled in the lodges..is the profane medium met everywhere and the mind is altered by it. And as Freemasons perform this duty as propagandists without revealing themselves as Masons, the activity which they exert is not recognized as Masonic.” (“The Jewish Conspiracy Against the Christian World”  pp.173-174) 

    But this knowledge should be liberating. They cannot dupe us when we understand the true nature of our predicament.

    by Ralph Epperson
    The Unseen Hand p.155ff (Excerpts by henrymakow.com)
    “According to John Reeves, in an authorized biography entitled The Rothschildsthe Financial Rulers of Nations, a pivotal meeting took place in London, in 1857. It was at this meeting that the International Banking Syndicate decided that (in America) the North was to be pitted against the South under the old principle of ‘divide and conquer.’ This amazing agreement was corroborated by MacKenzie in his historical research entitled The Nineteenth Century.

You can either believe that the Rothschilds have God like powers to end wars, or my explanation that they (the Illuminati) are behind these wars in the first place!
