Exchange Rates, Gold, Food and The Captain & Tennille

I want to make a mathematical point which I think is lost on most people, as most people struggle mightily with the concept of relative movements and relative mathematical relationships, because, you know, public schools.

Okay. The U.S. Dollar is quoted as an index relative to a basket of six currencies. Why is the U.S. Dollar quoted against a basket? Because the U.S. Dollar is the global reserve currency (for the moment – check back in tomorrow to see if this premise still holds). The Dollar is, essentially, the benchmark against which everything else is measured. So, relative to itself, the Dollar is always ”par”, and since it is the global benchmark currency (as of right this second), to compare it to any other currency is really just a quote on where that OTHER currency is relative to the Dollar in practical terms. Yes, mathematically you could quote the U.S. Dollar relative to the Bolivian Peso, but um, with all due respect to Bolivia, yeah, the base metric is the Dollar, and everyone is measuring the Bolivian Peso relative to the U.S. Dollar, not the other way around.

Here is the basket that is used to calculate the Dollar Index:

Euro 57.6% weight
Japanese Yen 13.6% weight
Pound Sterling 11.9% weight
Canadian Dollar 9.1% weight
Swedish Krona 4.2% weight
Swiss Franc 3.6% weight

The DX is 77.3% comprised of European currencies, with the Euro itself being the majority of the entire basket. Thus, if Europe collapses and we collapse, we will both be sucking together, but the relative mathematical relationship between the currencies might not change that much.

If The Captain jumps out of a plane and two seconds later Toni Tennille jumps out of the same plane, they will be plummeting toward the ground at the same speed with only the two-second lag between their respective jumps between them. But they will both be falling.

So, if today a loaf of bread in the U.S. costs $3.00 and that same loaf of bread in France costs 2.13 Euros, that means that the Euro exchange rate is 1.41 Dollars per Euro.

If our economies implode and hyper inflation kicks in, that same loaf of bread might cost $3000.00 and the loaf in Europe might cost 2200.00 Euros. That would be an exchange rate of 1.36 Dollars per Euro. That’s not much difference on a relative basis, huh? Does that mean that the Dollar has strengthened against the Euro and therefore everything is *teh awesome*? Of course not, but that is EXACTLY the line of bee-ess that the oligarchy and their stooges would get on TV and spew.

Whore.

Whore.

So how do we measure these fiat currencies as a whole? How do we cut the bee-ess and get down to the nitty-gritty? WHAT IS THE NITTY-GRITTY?

Real commodities.  Food.  Land.  Metals.

We know that all fiat currencies all over the world are getting their butts kicked collectively and that inflation is happening even though they are strengthening relative to the Dollar because, for example, the price of cattle (food) has pretty much doubled in the last five years, and farmground (where food comes from) prices have more than doubled. Quoting metals prices is more difficult because the metals markets are heavily manipulated.  I’m with Kyle Bass on metals – something seriously, seriously stinks in Denmark, baby.  The exchanges clearly don’t have the physical metal, and thus we are only ever one position limit-sized demand for delivery away from a full-on clusterbungle.

The whole thing is collapsing with the Dollar leading the way simply because it is historically weak relative to the basket. Yes, the Canadians are loving the relative relationship to the Dollar, but the entire system is still falling. And in my $3000 loaf of bread example, gold would probably be trading for something like $1,600,000 per ounce assuming a very simplistic linear relationship. That would tend to get people’s attention, don’t you think?

Now do you see why the oligarchy wants to delegitimize gold and denies that gold is even  money? Do you now see why food prices are excluded from the calculation of the Consumer Price Index (inflation)?  Real commodities shine the light of truth on our economic and inflationary situation. Real commodities, not some line of FEDGOV agitprop bee-ess as shamelessly spewed by the whores in the media, are the bottom-line metric.

If the oligarchy can get rid of or otherwise suppress or deny the measuring stick, they can convince The Captain and Toni Tennille that they aren’t falling, everything is fine, and no, you don’t need to deploy a parachute, because LOOK! You aren’t moving relative to each other, so therefore you must not be moving at all.

“When the others turn you off, who’ll be turning you . . . SPLAT.

Starting Saturday Off Right – Oh, Susanna Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Susanna and the two dirty old men from the Catacombs of Priscilla in Rome from the second-half of the second century.  For those of you in Yorba Linda, that is within the years ARSH 150-199, so, you know, totally modern.

Susanna (in the middle) and the two dirty old men lusting after her (pointing at her nether bits)  from the catacomb of Priscilla in Rome from the second-half of the second century. For those of you in Yorba Linda, that is within the years ARSH 150-199, so, you know, totally modern.

Today’s epistle for the Mass of the Saturday of the Third Week of Lent is the story of Susanna, which comprises the entirety of Daniel 13.  WHAAAAAT?  Daniel THIRTEEN?  Every good Wednesday-night-Bible-studier worth his salt knows that Daniel only has TWELVE books, Ann.

Well, not if you count the chapters that Herr Psychopath (Luther) edited out.  D’oh!  Poor Susanna got caught in the heretical crossfire as Luther had to toss her out with the rest of the Deuterocanon (books and passages found in Greek, not Hebrew), which he didn’t like because they refuted many of his heresies.

READ DANIEL 13, THE STORY OF SUSANNA HERE.

Short version:  Pretty girl goes into a garden.  Two dirty old men see her and want to have sex with her.  They approach her and tell her that if she doesn’t have sex with them, they will accuse her of crimes carrying the death sentence.  Realizing she can’t win, she chooses to stay faithful to God and His Law, do the right thing, and take whatever injustice comes.  The dirty old men then accuse her of trysting with a young man.  Susanna is hauled into court, facing the death penalty for fornication with two elderly male witnesses against her.  Enter the young prophet Daniel.  Daniel, inspired by the Holy Spirit, calls bee-ess and separates the two dirty old men.  He then asks each which tree in the garden he saw Susanna trysting beneath, and they contradict each other.  Daniel says, “Yup.  Thought so.”  The two dirty old men are then executed for bearing false witness.  Susanna’s name is cleared, Daniel is established as a prophet, and Susanna’s parents say, “YAY!!”

This is an evergreen story and lesson, and many people face situations like this at some point or another in their lives.  In fact, it happened to me several years ago.  Ah, well.  That’s a story for another day.

In fact, I would say that all Christians in the Iniquitous Gutter Republic (and so many other post-Christian nations) are facing similar situations right now – we must either remain faithful to God’s law and be prepared to suffer martyrdom up to death, or apostatize by our consent to crimes against God.  I mentioned that I was supplementing my assistance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass every day with Dom Propter Gueranger’s commentary.  Here is his concluding paragraph on this reading, and tell me that this doesn’t speak directly to us today – particularly to the wicked, wicked clergy who are all chomping at the bit to “normalize” both divorce and remarriage and also sodomy for the sake of being popular amongst the wicked pagans.  Emphases mine:

“In this history of Susanna the early Christians saw a figure of the Church, which, in their time, was solicited by the pagans to evil, but remained faithful to her Divine Spouse, even though death was the punishment for her resistance.  The carvings on the ancient Christian tombs, and the frescoes of the Roman catacombs, represent this history of Susanna’s fidelity to God’s law in spite of the death that threatened her, as a type of the martyrs preferring death to apostasy; for apostasy, in the language of the sacred Scriptures, is called adultery, which the soul is guilty of by denying her God, to who she espoused herself when she received Baptism.”

St. Susanna and all Holy Martyrs, pray for us!

 

Eggplant Lasagna

1.  One can go low-carb and substitute roasted eggplant slices for sheets of pasta and make a killer lasagna.  Secret ingredient?  NUTMEG.  Put it in the ricotta cheese and egg mixture.

2.  As promised, I received the legal documents and I don’t think that failure to appear will generate a bench warrant – probably just a summary judgment.  Nuts.  I was REALLY looking forward to having a bench warrant issued on my white bootie.  I was walking around all week saying “Bench Warrant Barnhardt, Bench Warrant Barnhardt”.  Patience, Grasshopper.  Patience.

BUT – you’re going to love this.  The homeowner’s association where my old office/condo in Colorado was is suing me for unpaid charges and they fined me $200 per month for having the chalk Epiphany Blessing over my front door.  Here is a picture, and as you can see, it is extremely offensive.  And impossible to remove – oh wait.  It’s chalk, so it could have been removed at any time with – literally – a WET SPONGE.  Yeah.

Oh, the horror!  The HORROR!

Oh, the horror! The HORROR!

For those of you who don’t know, the Epiphany Blessing is an ancient Catholic sacramental tradition in which the head of every household makes an inscription above every outside door at Epiphany with chalk that was blessed at Epiphany. This inscription is small and subtle, and marking the door frame harkens back to the Passover in Egypt wherein Israel marked their doors with the blood of the Passover lamb. You would have to consciously look at the top of the door frame to see it. It is all but invisible to anyone walking by. Here is the text of the instructions and prayer that I received and used:

The blessed chalk is taken home and then the father or senior member of the family says the following prayer once at the main entrance of the house, and that door is marked as follows. Then the family members should accompany the father as he goes from outside entrance to outside entrance and marks this over each door:

Hear us, O Holy Lord, Father Almighty, Eternal God, and send Thy Holy Angel from heaven to watch over, cherish, protect, be with, and defend all who live in my house. I call upon Thy Saints Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar to protect my family and my home from every harm and danger, and I place the marks of their holy names over the doors of my home to remain there as a constant reminder to us and to all who enter here that my house is truly a house of the Lord. O God, make the door of my house the gateway to Thy Eternal Kingdom. I ask these things in the Name of Jesus Christ Thy Son. Amen.
20 + G + M + B + 13

So, yeah.  First Amendment? Free exercise?  Freedom of religion?  Not so much.  ’Merika.  Land of the sheep, home of the slaves.

I have handed my last dollar over to attorneys and accountants, and therefore won’t even respond to this, so I’m sure the HOA can look forward to getting a lien against my real property.  Oh…wait. I don’t HAVE any real property anymore.  BWA-HA-HA-HA!  Oh – but they could get a lien on my vehicle.  Oh, wait.  I don’t OWN a vehicle any longer.  BWA-HA-HA-HA!   Oh – maybe they could get a lien on my personal property.  Oh, wait.  I’m down to a few outfits, coats and shoes, and the shoes stink, the coats are missing buttons, and the shirts are rocking some mildly awesome pit stains.  BWA-HA-HA-HA!  I’m tellin’ ya kids, this business of having no estate is TEH AWESOME.  May I be permitted to paraphrase Spoon Boy?

Spoon Boy: Do not try and seize the estate. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no estate.
Neo: There is no estate?
Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the estate that is seized, it is only yourself.

That’s deep, Brah.

Anyway, this is just another example of how it is now illegal to be a practicing, believing Roman Catholic in the Iniquitous Gutter Republic.

3.  Thanks to one and all for the emails regarding the 777 and Vinegar Fan piece.  The mail fell into two categories.  The first was tinfoil hat wearers deriding me for not being… schizophrenic, apparently.  This is awesome because it allowed me to set up dozens of email blocks, which will help with the inbox management significantly.  The second class followed the following outline formula:

- Hi
– I have never written to anyone on the internet before.  Please understand that I’m not the kind of person to write letters to perfect strangers that I see on the internet.  Seriously.
– Thank you for saying what you said about the conspiracy nutters.
– I know that the financial system, government, Church and/or the world in general is severely messed up like never before in human history.
– Every time I try to go to a meeting of some sort, it is always ruined by some nut who stands up and starts railing about contrails or underground civilizations or shape-shifters or Planet X.
– The consistent presence of these nuts around any serious prepping, “Tea-Partyesque” or Traditional Catholic gathering sometimes makes me question my own perception of what is happening.  What the hell am I doing around these people?
– I worry that I may find myself in a foxhole next to some guy who, when I ask him to cover me, will start spraying vinegar over my head instead of shooting at the bad guys.
– No one ever stands up to these nuts because crazy people are kinda scary.
– Thanks for saying what you said.  You made me feel a lot better, and it’s good to know that I’m not alone.

No prob, kids.  It’s mah job, yo.

4.  Ace of Spades posted the following stats last night:

Russia vs. USA

1. Total Population: 142,517,670 – 313,847,465
2. Manpower available: 69,117,271 – 142,212,012
3. Military reserve: 20,035,000 – 1,458,000
4. Total aircraft strength: 4,500 – 15,236
5. Navy ship strength: 224 – 2907
6. Submarines: 58 – 71
7. Total helicopter strength: 1,635 – 6,665

My comment?  Since the Former U.S. will never, ever, ever, ever use any of those assets, they are all utterly worthless and it could therefore be defeated by ONE UNARMED MAN.

In fact, it already has.

Dear 'Merika.  You got your ass kicked by THIS.  Please form an orderly line as you come forward on your Wal-Mart electric scooters for the morbidly obese to collect your "participation" trophies.

Dear ‘Merika: You got your ass kicked into non-existence by THIS. Please form an orderly line as you come forward on your Wal-Martian electric scooters for the morbidly obese to collect your “participation” trophies.  Spasibo and Xiexie.

Sixteen minutes of glory from Psalm 85, verses 14-17, as set by Artemy Vedel.  Oh, I wish I could sing.  Sigh.

O God, the wicked are risen up against me, and the assembly of the mighty have sought my soul: and they have not set Thee before their eyes. And thou, O Lord, art a God of compassion, and merciful, patient, and of much mercy, and true.  O look upon me, and have mercy on me: give Thy command to Thy servant, and save the son of Thy handmaid.  Shew me a token for good: that they who hate me may see, and be confounded, because Thou, O Lord, hast helped me and hast comforted me.

Starting Wednesday Off Right – Tebe Poem Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

No, not “poem” as in the English word “poem”.  ”Tebe Poem” is a hymn sung after the Consecration in the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (Byzantine Rite).  This particular version was composed by Bortniansky.  Sigh.  Partaking of such gorgeous choral music is important because when one becomes fixated on the sorry state of both mankind and one’s self, things like this remind us that people aren’t all bad and we are capable of beauty far above our sorry state.  I reckon one of the secondary reasons Our Lord inspired and desires only objectively beautiful Liturgy is to give us something to do that demonstrates our own dignity and potential to ourselves so that we don’t despair.  It is very hard to hate humanity and view it as “totally depraved” or people as mere “dunghills” after listening to an achingly beautiful choral hymn sung in perfect five-part harmony that surely must make the angels stop and listen.

Here is the text in Romanized Slavonic (so you can phonetically recognize what is being sung), English and Latin.

So Our Lord has just come down upon the altar and is physically, substantially present thereon, and what could be more fitting than this:

Tebe poem
Tebe blagoslovim
Tebe blagodarim, Gospodi
I molim Ti sia, Bozhe nash.

We sing to Thee,
we praise Thee,
we thank Thee, O Lord,
and we pray to Thee, our God.

Te laudamus,
te benedicimus,
tibi gratias agamus, Domine,
et obsecramus te, Deus noster.

On the 777, Vinegar, and Oscillating Fans

Lots of solid and fascinating info in the piece linked below, and it utterly debunks all of the tinfoil hat nonsense, especially with regards to the runway requirements of a 777.  You can’t just land a plane like that anywhere.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE PIECE.

Bottom line, pilot and co-pilot cold-jacked the plane, flew it out over the open ocean, demanded their imprisoned Malaysian political cult leader be released and when he wasn’t, they nosedived the thing into the ocean at 550mph whereupon it all but atomized (kinetic energy, non-compressability of water, laws of physics, etc.)  Hence the shiftyness from the Malay government.  The deployment of the USS Kidd is the most persuasive piece of data, though.  I’m with the author – the subs heard the impact.  Subs can hear whalefarts.

But, of course, tales of shape-shifting lizard-Joooz deploying their lizard-Jooo holographically cloaked antigravity shuttlecraft and their newly-developed micro-blackhole (or is that WORMHOLE?) magic disappearing weapon will no doubt live on and on and on.

But then, it’s just the mind-control chemicals from the jet contrails MAKING ME SAY THAT.

Clearly I need to start spraying my water-vinegar solution into the sky again.  You know, to form the magic force field to protect me from the mind control chemicals.

You think I’m kidding?  Oh no.  No no no.

At the 1:30 mark, this poor, poor man, who is psychiatrically ill, shows his “chemtrail busting system” and after an hour triumphantly declares that the contrails (yes, CONTRAILS, not “chemtrails”, because CONTRAILS are what ARE and always HAVE BEEN produced by atmospheric moisture condensing around jet engine exhaust) are gone.  Because his fans on his back terrace did that – not, oh, I dunno, dissipation of the condensation of atmospheric moisture around the particulate exhaust from the jet engines FIVE MILES overhead over the course of an hour.  No.  This man actually believes that his FANS on his TERRACE dissipated a cloud formation through multiple cubic miles of atmosphere.

I post this video just because it is so quietly and thoroughly horrifying.  These people – utterly disconnected from reality – are a non-trival percent of the populace, and it seems that an ever-growing percent of the populace is so stupid, gullible, or mentally ill that this stuff just gets more and more traction.  And we wonder why there isn’t any grass-roots level inertia to turn civilization around.  We wonder why people continue to fall for the same old crap.  I cannot believe that 50 years ago these manifestations of mental illness would have garnered any attention other than pity, because people could think in linear logical progressions and had a fairly decent baseline understanding of science.  Today this stuff feeds a massive closet industry.

The only thing I can figure is the pathological refusal to accept responsibility for anything – even collective responsibility – is what is driving this.  America is going to hell, it is said by these nuts, not because its people have degenerated through their own personal moral and intellectual sloth, but, the nuts say, because the shape-shifting Lizard-Jooos are, are, um, wait… spraying us with mind-control chemicals!  Yeah!  That’s the ticket! It isn’t MY fault!  I dinnit do it!  My son is an illiterate moron and my daughter is a conscienceless slutbag NOT because I happily sent them off to public schools (and let’s face it – private too) where the commies had free reign over them, and then parked them in front of the TV at home and thus utterly failed them as their parent.  No!  It’s the mind control chemicals from the Lizard-Jooos!  WHERE’S MY OSCILLATING FAN???!!!???!!!  We gotta do sumpin’ ’bout dat shit!

Meanwhile, those of us jumping up and down screaming about the financial bubble and the cold coup and overthrow of the former American republic get lumped in with the guy who has two fans blowing on vinegar-soaked dishtowels on his back patio.  And you just think to yourself, watdahell?  Say goodnight, Gracie.

They walk among us.

They walk among us.

Ketchup Catch-up.

1.  Remember the big glass ketchup bottles?

Keg o' Ketchup

Keg o’ Ketchup

2.  The benefactor Mass (Tuesday) and the Corzine Mass (Wednesday) were both lovely.  I was struck during the Corzine Mass by a sense of hopefulness.  If there is hope for Jon Corzine, no matter how small, then there is hope for me, too.  And for all of us.  There is hope.  I am still weirded-out in the awestruck sense that Jon Corzine has had the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for the salvation of his soul.  This illustrates perfectly the whole dynamic and distinction of Christ dying for “all” versus for “many”.  Christ’s death on the Cross REDEEMED all of humanity, but individuals are still free to accept or reject their own redemption.  If they accept it, they are saved.  If they reject Christ’s redemption, then they will be damned – but the redemption still occurred.  Redemption and salvation are two different things.  Salvation is dependent on the antecedent act of redemption, but is NOT a guaranteed corollary of it.  Christ died to redeem Jon Corzine, but Corzine is free to continue to reject Christ.  But, it is said that having the Holy Sacrifice offered for a person’s intention while they are yet alive is the most efficacious thing that can be done for the person’s soul.

A single Mass offered for oneself during life may be worth more than a thousand celebrated for the same intention after death.”  St. Anselm, Doctor of the Church.

3.  I hate to tease information, but something truly wonderful has happened to me on the legal front.  The wheels of injustice are beginning to pick up speed.  I am awaiting the reception of scanned documents from Colorado, but let me just tease you with two words:  BENCH WARRANT.  And is isn’t to do with what you think.  It is way, way better.  So check back in regularly, and as soon as I have .jpg images of the documents, I’ll make a dedicated post on it.  Yay!

4.  The financial suicides?  Of course I have taken note.  I suspect that these are people who have probably been explicitly involved in and/or were consciously aware of the massive scam in the financial sector, were facing either total financial ruin, possible jail time, or a combination of the two, and thus cashed-in life insurance policies by jumping off of balconies.  Remember, these people have zero faith and for them, their entire lives are defined by material net worth and personal success.  Take all of their money away and their lofty corporate positions and there is nothing left for them.  They have nothing to live for, and their future appears as an infinite gaping maw of nothingness.  They would rather die than suffer the humiliation of losing their wealth, or of facing justice for their crimes.  They can not bear any level of shame – even when they deserve it.  Many of these people also engage in two behaviors that throw open the door to demonic influence and oppression:  drug use and fornication.  Oh, yes.  I expect that this is just the very, very beginning of an epidemic of suicide as Western Civilization in all of its modernist, post-Christian, materialist, atheist desolation utterly implodes.

5.  I wrote a piece all the way back in ARSH 2010 on secession dynamics and the criticality of maintaining the sovereign cohesion of the landmass of the former American Republic, citing specifically the risk of a Sino-Russian invasion.  I’ll not repost the whole thing here, but rather tease you with the last two paragraphs, and you can read the rest on the “The One About…” page.  This was written almost four years ago on June 23, ARSH 2010, some ten months before I even went viral, and some 15 months before MFGlobal and my shuttering of Barnhardt Capital Management.

“Given these obvious tactical realities, I hope that one and all now see that the TERRITORIAL BOUNDARIES OF THE FIRST AMERICAN REPUBLIC MUST BE PRESERVED. Integrated sovereignty MUST remain intact from “sea to shining sea”. Amicable divorce is NOT an option. We can not allow Marxism to establish any quarter, even in the spirit of “compromise” and the avoidance of possible hostilities, because that “compromise” and “avoidance” would be to sign our own death warrants, and the death warrant of Western Civilization. It would be far better to fight a civil war of territorial preservation than to fight a war against a conquering Sino‐Russian invasion.

How sick is it that I have to post this crap? I’m a 33 year old single woman (when this was written). I should be planning my next business move, or thinking about recreational travel. Instead, I’m standing here, mid‐morning on a Wednesday, writing essays on secession dynamics and military tactics for the North American theater. This is the living, breathing definition of FUBAR. God save us.”

I was, and still am, regarded as a “loon” for talking about things like this.  And I am often reminded in my email box that “just because the things you have been talking about are happening doesn’t mean that they are happening or that you are right.  You’re just a loon.”  Yes, dear.  Of course I am.  A drooling, delusional loon who just needs to get laid.  You betcha.

Eyeroll

I bring this up because of today’s news over at ZeroHedge that Russia and China are likely preparing to drop a financial nuke on the U.S. within a matter of months if not weeks.  Remember the new Sino-Russian global reserve petrocurrency that people (including me) have been expecting?  Well, Putin tested the waters with Ukraine, was obviously tickled with the West’s total capitulation, has determined that the water is nice and warm, and away we go…

Petrodollar Alert: Putin Prepares To Announce “Holy Grail” Gas Deal With China

A fascinating point is made therein that China, of all people, should be distancing itself from “referendums” such as what was seen in Crimea because, you know, TIBET and TAIWAN.  What this indicates is that China sees this financial move as far more important than anything that might go on in Tibet or Taiwan, because let’s be frank, with no U.S. presence in geopolitics and zero threat of any U.S. military intervention (I don’t care whether you’re a total isolationist or not – I’m just stating objective situational reality here), The People’s Liberation Army could quash any freedom movements in Tibet or Taiwan without breaking a sweat.  They would just be “protecting the ethnic Chinese in those areas”.  The only former backstop was the threat of U.S. involvement, either in the financial arena or militarily.  Kids, that threat is now GONE.  All bets are off, and yes, the days of the petroDOLLAR are most assuredly NUMBERED.  When that happens, there will be, overnight, the almost total evaporation of demand for U.S. Treasury paper and a resulting sell-off of U.S. paper by outsiders, at which point two things will happen: 1.) the Fed will mash the throttle on printing, because it will be the only significant “buyer”, if you can even call it that, of U.S. paper, and 2.) the move to inject collateral into the system by seizing in whole or in part (as was done in Poland last year) the $20 TRILLION held in U.S. 401ks, IRAs and annuities by “converting” them to U.S. Treasury paper and establishing a mandatory “retirement account” withholding.  Because, you know, THAT’S never been done before.  (Call it something different and no one will know it’s Social Security Ponzi 2.0 ’cause they dum!)

In the article the amenable relations between the Sino-Russian axis and India are also referenced.

Oh, and for y’all gold bugs, yes, the two main buyers of gold over the past several years have been China and India; almost as if they were preparing to launch a currency backed by a tangible commodity that would be instantly regarded as a “flight to quality” in comparison to the massive, sucking debt hole that is the U.S. economy and government.  Russia brings petroleum, timber and agricultural production to the “real commodity” table.  But don’t worry – America has Miley Cyrus.  And Wal-Mart after Wal-Mart stocked with American-made sundries.  Oh… wait.  Nevermind.

6.  Finally, if you read the piece I wrote back in ARSH 2010 about the balkanization of the U.S. and watch the appended video of Larry Grathwohl, the mole who infiltrated the Weather Underground – the neo-Stalinist terrorist group led by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, Obama’s ghostwriters, political mentors and intimates, you will hear Grathwohl, in this early-1980s interview, say the following:

“I brought up the subject of what’s going to happen after we take over the government. Uh, you know, we, WE become responsible then for administrating, you know, 250 million people.  And there was no answers.  No one had given any thought to economics.  How are you going to clothe and feed these people.  The only thing that I could get was that they expected that the Cubans and the North Vietnamese and the Chinese and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States….”

I was reminded in a conversation not too long ago that this is yet another point of eerie similarity between the French Revolution and the neo-Stalinist “Obama” revolution and overthrow of the former United States, in addition to all of the points which I covered in my video presentation of the Vendee Genocide.  The French Revolution was all about destruction for destruction’s sake.  There was no economic or real governmental plan for France after the Ancien Regime, believe it or not.  This is why a certain someone was able to rise to the level of absolute dictator after a revolution that was supposedly all about giving “power to the people”.

Napoleone di Buonaparte.  An absolute dictator and forerunner to the Antichrist.

The same thing is happening to the former United States now.  The constitutional republic has been overthrown and the one and only goal of the regime is economic destruction for destruction’s sake in order to loot the system and enable the coalescence of power in a mindless oligarchy, which will likely continue to be fronted by one, or a series of absolute dictator tyrants.  These people have no real plan or idea of how to actually run an economy or provide for 330 million people – because they don’t CARE about any of that.  All they care about is tearing the whole thing down so they can grab as much wealth as they can.  Just like the Jacobins in France.  God help us if someone with an actual brain in his head ascends openly to that position of public power – a la Napoleon.

Napoleon

Oh yeah. TOTALLY psychologically healthy. Let’s give HIM absolute power.
