He May Win WW III without firing a shot

Putin may win WW III without firing a shot.

Putin is poised to run through Ukraine like a hot knife through butter. Short of launching ICBM’s with nuclear weapons, there is little that NATO can do to counter the Russian takeover of Ukraine.

The 21st century has been widely touted as the Chinese century. That proclamation may be a bit premature. Putin is piling up an impressive string of victories and when the smoke clears from the present crisis, Putin may have established the Russians as the emerging dominant power on the planet.

By losing Ukraine to the Russians and thwarting the EU’s attempts at persuading Ukraine into joining the European Union, bad days lie ahead. The IMF, the World Bank, NATO, the Obama Administration and the Petrodollar are about to be dealt a devastating blow.

Putin is about to unleash a series of “secret weapons” so devastating, that the West may not be able effectively respond. Thus, the West, that would be you and me, will not recover.

Putin’s Secret Weapon Number One

The end of the NATO alliance and the seeds of America’s decline are explained in the following chart. Germany, America’s most important NATO ally, receives 36% of its gas from Russia. Italy receives 27% and France receives 23% of it gas from Russia.

putin natural gas mapSixty six percent of exported Russian natural gas and oil run through Ukraine. When Ukraine is firmly in the hands of Russia, Putin will hold the trump card over a large portion of European energy needs. How generous is Putin feeling?

Putin’s energy trump card lies in the fact that he can charge almost whatever he wants for gas being shipped into Europe. Some are speculating that Putin will use a classic divide and conquer strategy to drive a wedge between European interests and that of the United States.

Imagine the following scenario for a moment. Putin informs the European Union that he will no longer accept the dollar (i.e. the world’s reserve currency) as an acceptable form of currency from which to purchase their Russian imported energy products. This will have a crippling effect on the dollar, and thus, the American economy.

If Putin does refuse to accept the dollar as payment from Europe for its gas, what effect will that have on the NATO alliance? Will France, Italy and Germany succumb to Putin’s coming blackmail and will the Europeans chose economic solvency over military alliances? I would strongly suggest that the Europeans will choose economic solvency. As a result, NATO will be permanently fractured.

It is not difficult to see that Putin will forge a two tiered pricing for his exports. A discounted price will be offered to those countries desiring to make their purchase in the Euro. An elevated price will be charged to those nations who still insist on using the dollar as the medium of exchange in order to not offend their American allies. The dollar, as the World’s reserve currency is in a lot of trouble.

Putin Secret Weapon Number Two

As the world watches Putin spit in the eye of the Federal Reserve, what impact will this have on other oil producing nations? The rest of the world will undoubtedly feel emboldened to pursue the best medium of exchange for their individual situation. If the Saudi’s can exploit the situation, they will do so as well other Middle Eastern Nations. If Obama does nothing, the Petrodollar will be dead in 2014. Without a viable Petrodollar, there is no dollar. The austerity coming to America would make the economics of Italy, Greece and Spain look like a walk in the park.

Putin has time on his side as he has the ability to bleed the American economy dry. As he manipulates the world to abandon the dollar, the US economy will come to a grinding halt. Hyper-inflation will be upon us. The American standard of living will plummet. The percentage of GDP being invested into the military will go into a tail spin. Spare parts technology, the lifeblood of any fighting force will erode and much of the American military will resemble a junkyard more than a modern military fighting machine.

American Counter-Measures

In order to stop the bleeding, Obama only has a small window in which to act. Obama may not be able to control the demise of the dollar with regard to Europe’s soon-to-be energy purchases, however, it is likely that Obama will soon stage a false flag event, blame Syria, in order to have a pretext from which to invade Syria as a precursor to invading Iran and slowing the demise of the Petrodollar in the Middle East.

NATO will still disintegrate, but Obama would slow the bleeding of the Petrodollar while he and his puppet masters search for answers.

Putin’s Secret Weapon Number Three

Assad, a modern-day General Vo Nguyen Giap who drove America from Vietnam.

Will Assad become a modern-day General Vo Nguyen Giap who drove America from Vietnam?

My sources tell me that Putin is furiously arming Assad, in Syria, with high grade military equipment and numerous battlefield ready weapons in anticipation of a coming American military intervention. Assad is being armed with the capability to turn Syria into a modern-day Vietnam. Again, time is on the side of Putin. Can America afford another military quagmire? It is likely that Obama will be checkmated again by the much more savvy Putin.

Conclusion

Will they support America or Russia?

Will they support America or Russia?

The conclusion to this story is that there is no conclusion, yet.

There are still some extraneous variables which have yet to come into play. The $64,000 question centers on what China will do? Remember, the Chinese own a large percentage of our debt and their economic future, in large part, is based upon the maintenance of a somewhat healthy dollar. However, China has been a major participant in the BRIC nations undermining the Petrodollar by purchasing Iranian oil with gold. On the surface, it appears that China is talking out of both sides of their mouth. Make no mistake about it, China is posturing by playing both sides of the fence. In the next part of this series, an analysis of who China will ultimately side with and why will be offered.

America is not without options, but the options are not pleasant and World War III will result and the only winners will be the banksters. This will also be examined in more detail in the next article.

Finally, does anyone else find it curious that the movie, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, is predicated upon a Russian attack upon Wall Street? And one of the versions of Call of Duty is based upon the same scenario.

    Dave, do not go hysterical. Putin has everything to lose to take Ukraine. There are many Russians there and there has been hostility towards each other for Ages since Stalin killed millions of Ukrainians during the communist orchestrated famine in the 1930´s. However, they are still all SLAVIC People and they still view themselves as one Family. Yes, the hate and love each other like many individual familes. As Long as the Ukrainian government does not attack ethnic Russians I do not see this Happening. Putin will lose everything if he does. He got his main prize and that is Crimea, Keep his only warm water port.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: I PREDICT THAT THE BRAVE GERMANS WILL BE THE FIRST TO BACK AWAY FROM ITS MOST SALIENT COMMITMENTS TO NATO. IF NOT, YOU GERMANS BETTER PUT AN EXTRA BLANKET ON THE BED, BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO GET REAL COLD. GERMANY DOES NOT HAVE THE STOMACH FOR WAR AGAINST PUTIN. THE SPIRIT OF HITLER HAS MIGRATED TO MOSCOW. PUTIN IS A MAN, YOUR COUNTRY IS RUN BY A WOMAN, AND HER NAME IS NOT THATCHER, WHO HAS ONLY SLIGHTLY MORE RESOLVE THAN OBAMA.

  2. TC March 19, 2014 at 5:56 am

    Two points: First, Ukraine has not been taken over by Russia, rather its government was taken over by NATO in a violent coup and it is their puppets that are now in place. Second, as Jim Sinclair pointed out, there is no need for Russia to stop accepting dollars to collapse the US economy. Merely saying they will accept payment also in other currencies in addition to the dollar will do the job.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: SECOND POINT BY SINCLAIR COULD BE CORRECT, BUT PUTIN HAS WON THE LEVERAGE WAR. FIRST COMMENT JUST GOT PICKED OFF OF FIRST BECAUSE OF BEING TOO FAR OFF BASE.

  3. David March 19, 2014 at 6:12 am

    Dave – It sounds like you want to preserve the petrodollar. You state in your conclusion that “the Chinese own a large percentage of our debt and their economic future, in large part, is based upon the maintenance of a somewhat healthy dollar.” Let’s make something clear – the dollar is not and has not been healthy since 1913. The dollar is a debt based instrument. It is based on the creation of debt and that isn’t healthy. The dollar has been dying for a century now and only some geopolitical machinations have kept it alive. That some countries are beginning to trade in their own currencies or gold or whatever is a good thing in my opinion. Why should any country be forced to exchange their currency for dollars in order to buy oil? That’s tyrannical isn’t it?

    Hey, I understand that the death of the petrodollar may mean hardship for America but why should it be exempt from hardship? The Federal Reserve has been exporting hardship for a century now as the world has been flooded with dollars. No discussion about the petrodollar would be complete without understanding how it started and why – “President Richard M. Nixon and his globalist sidekick, Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, knew that their destruction of the international gold standard under the Bretton Woods arrangement would cause a decline in the artificial global demand of the U.S. dollar. Maintaining this “artificial dollar demand” was vital if the United States were to continue expanding its “welfare and warfare” spending.”

    In other words, the petrodollar is the brainchild of two of the biggest crooks and war criminals in history. What is good about preserving a system contrived by those two in an effort to advance some globalist agenda?

    “The Primary Benefits of the Petrodollar System

    The petrodollar system has proven tremendously beneficial to the U.S. economy. In addition to creating a marketplace for affordable imported goods from countries who need U.S. dollars, there are more specific benefits. In essence, America receives a double loan out of every global oil transaction.

    First, oil consumers are required to purchase oil in U.S. dollars. Second, the excess profits of the oil-producing nations are then placed into U.S. government debt securities held in Western banks. The petrodollar system provides at least three immediate benefits to the United States.

    1) It increases global demand for U.S. dollars
    2) It increases global demand for U.S. debt securities
    3) It gives the United States the ability to buy oil with a currency it can print at will”

    Based on this, why would any moral person want to preserve the petrodollar system? Or the dollar itself? It’s all moot anyway because it’s destined to fail. All man made systems do.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: NO ARGUMENT ABOUT THE EVILS OF THE PETRODOLLAR- IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT THE HAND THAT CONTROLS THE PETRODOLLAR, ALSO PROVIDES OUR ECONOMIC VIABILITY, OUR JOBS, OUR STANDARD OF LIVING- WE DO NOT AGREE, BUT IF WE ROOT FOR THE DEMISE OF THE PETRODOLLAR UNDER THE EXISTING CIRCUMSTANCES, PLEASE REALIZE, IT IS THE END OF EVERYTHING THAT SUSTAINS US. HELLUVA CHOICE ISN’T IT? I HATE THE BANKSTERS AS MUCH AS YOU!

  4. TG USMC March 19, 2014 at 6:13 am

    Good article Dave! In my last response to you was I said I believe Ukraine is a smoke screen. I still feel this way because I feel the main objective is Iran. This is going to be the only way to save the petrodollar. The US must increase our natural gas to take care of our allies. We cannot afford to turn our backs on our friends and allies, like what Barry is doing to Israel. This would be a slap in Putin’s face is we supplied his allies with natural gas and other resources. One thing I have noticed, everyone can be bought. Loyalty comes at a steep price. So it would not be hard to persuade other countries to step to the other side. It also shows how little respect the bankers have for human life. The N.W.O. cannot get to their goal if America is not taken down, that is why I expect an EMP attack very soon. Just follow the headlines and you can see what the hell is going on. Man could put an end to all of this if we stop using money, and went back to the BARTER system. Who would go to war over an ear of corn? God Bless and stay safe

    EDITOR’S NOTE: IRAN AND UKRAINE, GOOD SOCCER MATCH, BOTH BAD FOR THE PETRODOLLAR- 2 FRONTS, SAME OBJECTIVE.- I THINK EMP IS VERY POSSIBLE TOO

  5. William B Stoecker March 19, 2014 at 6:19 am

    Putin is ruthless, but he is also very rational and very shrewd. He seems to have at least some independence from the banksters and may be acting completely on his own…there is no way to know. But the Obaminable Hussein is a vain and foolish creature with no knowledge or understanding of anything…hardly surprising, given that all its (never seen) diplomas and degrees are completely fake. Its handlers and the banksters above them are criminally insane. Not only are they heartless sociopaths, but they are completely irrational, mad men completely capable of destroying the world and themselves along with it.
    Meanwhile, the US is more vulnerable to more dangers than at any time in its history. Our electric grid and all that depends upon it is vulnerable to hackers and to manmade or natural EMP, and even to Muslims with rifles shooting at transformers. Our water supply is vulnerable to terrorists with poisons or disease agents, and our economy is teetering on the edge of ruin.
    As I have said before, I think that the Illuminati banksters will fail in their ultimate goal, but, going down, they will take most of us with them.

  6. Andrea S March 19, 2014 at 6:19 am

    I must be really missing something…why is Ukraine so important at all? Can’t Russia charge what it wants for gas with or without Ukraine? Can’t it shut off the source of gas so that it can’t travel through the pipelines that go through Ukraine if it wants? Can’t it charge in whatever currency it chooses now, with or without Ukraine? What am I missing here? Doesn’t Putin already hold the trump card over a large portion of European Energy needs, without having Ukraine? If the gas is originating in Russia then isn’t he already in control? I don’t get it. Why is this a WWIII starter?

    EDITOR’S NOTE: BRIEFLY, THE GAS RUNS THROUGH UKRAINE. I WOULD SUGGEST READING THE RELATED ARTICLES FROM THE LAST 4 DAYS. IT IS LAID OUT PRETTY CLEARLY

    Good day Dave,

    Thanks again for your insightful view of the coming world war lll.
    Also I want to know what will be the impact of the falling dollar worldwide or how bad is it going to be?
    You see am just 28 year old and live in South Africa, have inherited properties from my late father and of course insurance money in US dollar, my brothers and dear mother count on me to carry on with the family legacy since am the first born and I’m deeply worried about what coming and trying to take action before its too late. History have proved over and over that people loose their life unnecessary due to the normalcy bias . Major examples of the normalcy bias include the Holocaust, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the Fukushima reactor explosion. Many lives have been ruined by limited preparation and proper action. they think nothing will have to them until its too late. thanks again for the 22 year comments about the new world order ( my own family laugh at me when I told them what’s coming, I wasn’t surprised)
    Waiting for your reply,
    Yann

    Easy solution, if Russia moves one step into the Ukraine, blow up every pipeline they running through western Ukraine. We can supply them with the fuel they need. The Russian economy will come to a grinding halt. The newly announced here will become a goat overnight and God help him if we walks by a light pole and someone has a rope.

    It would be a fair conclusion to find that Putin has played the US/NATO for the bumbling idiots they are. The US/NATO has been poking at the Russians for quite some time now and it’s obvious the Russians have had more than enough. US/NATO’s coup d’état Ukraine besides being the very epitome of hypocrisy, spells the end for US regime change schemes the world over. About dang time too. It isn’t the Russians that are the “grave threat” to world security, it is the US/NATO and their use of terrorism and terrorists to further their fool dreams of world conquest.

  13. Mike March 19, 2014 at 7:10 am

    My opinion, you’re going to see China get very confident and start to “expand” due to the west becoming unstable. They will probably “forcibly annex” Japan, the Koreas and Taiwan. They might even sail as far as Australia. Europe will probably form a United European Army and attempt to invade Russia. There have been talks of forming such an institution within the EU.

    World War III and the coming US civil war is going to be a multisided fight. Not like Axis vs Allies, more like a free for all

  14. greatdogs March 19, 2014 at 7:17 am

    Dave, a question. What do you think the effect of the Shanghi Cooperative Organization will be on the situation developing in the Middle East? It appears to me this will only provide more ammo in Putin’s arsenal against NATO.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: EVERYONE IS RUSHING IN TO GET A PIECE OF THE MIDDLE EAST PIE BEFORE IT COLLAPSES

  15. Mike March 19, 2014 at 7:18 am

    Appreciate the analysis. America is in a lot of trouble. Many have prophesied economic collapse and invasion by China/Russia. Maybe it’s all true and we’re not far away… time will tell. We can look at all the whats and whys but it really all comes down to the fact that we’ve turned our back on the God of the Bible. Hopefully we’ll repent before it’s completely too late.

  16. Michael, Waiting, etc March 19, 2014 at 7:22 am

    When we understand that the endgame here is the catastrophic destruction of the US then all of the moves here begin to make more sense.
    A not so silent war has been declared against the U.S. similar to the war declared on Germany in 1933. This will probably end the same way. When we become aware of the merciless rape and slaughter of civilian population and the pow population AFTER the war that was carried out by the allies we may have a glimpse of the treatment that we are about to face.

  17. Mark Mayr March 19, 2014 at 7:26 am

    Bro Dave,

    Here are some insights I have gathered ~

    1: The dollar is toast. We are going to a “Yuan-Petro” standard for oil. The collapse is nothing to wait for. . .it is happening RIGHT NOW!
    2: The gold from Ukraine is going to China (it’s owed to them by the US) because of a trade made during the London Whale in 2012 by “Bruno”. The trade loss was 100 billion +. The collateral pledged on that trade was Chinese gold. In other words, that gold was rehypothecated. Also, gambles were made to back the EMU.
    3: JP Morgan exited commodities due to their losses while manipulating commodities. Deutsche Bank was also a manipulator of metals. They were playing “back-up” to the quarterback.
    4: JP Morgan had to sell their building adjacent to the Federal Reserve Bank for 720 million dollars vs. the true value of the building speculated to be in access of 1.8 billion.
    5: Two of the bankers that have recently died from jumping to their death were Gabriel Magee, the 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, whodied after plummeting from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London’s Canary Wharf on January 27 and Ryan Henry Crane, the 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago on February 3 at his home in Connecticut . Magee was on the trading desk in London. Crane was on the trading desk in NY.
    6: JP Morgan had to rob private accounts to pay back their debt to China.
    7: Russia and China are uniting to abort the Petro Dollar.
    8: The US has surpassed international tolerance and other countries are more than willing to abandon using the dollar for trade with oil.
    9: Iran has oil supplies that exceed what Saudi Arabia has. . .they just lack the “refinery” part of the equation. The need massive power to build a refinery and that requires nuclear energy.
    10: Every year since 2007 the US and Israel have made statements that they are going to attack Iran.
    11: The US has lost their influence. . .the East has 60% of global GDP, 50% trade and 70% manufacturing. They have encouraged their people to purchase gold.
    12: The US has 32%+ unemployment. 92 million without work who are of working age. 101 million on welfare of some sort. 100+ million on food stamps. The economy is contracting. Their government is lying about inflation, employment and our dependence on Saudi oil (that is running dry) is coming to an end. NOBODY WANTS THE DOLLAR due to the ignorance of the leaders of the West in international diplomacy methods. Our foreign policy sucks and both China and Russia know it.
    13: TPP is DOA. China told Obama to take a hike.
    14: Present currency swaps are bypassing the dollar.
    15: When Saudi threatened Russia with potential terrorist attacks during the Olympics, Putin’s fire for redemption was ignited.
    16: Putin is going to pressure Saudi to sell oil in the Yuan instead of the dollar. Hence. . .the emergence of the “Petro-Yuan” and the death of the petro dollar.
    17: Trade zones come into play here inclusive of the Afghan trading zone. BRICS nations, etc.
    18: US is going to split their currency to a domestic “continental dollar” a “green dollar” for international trade.
    19: Expect devaluation of the domestic dollar to reach as much as 80% and the cost of living could increase as much as 20x present rates.
    20: GET GOLD . . .ECONOMIC RESET IS UNDERWAY!

    This is going to be the biggest financial event in world history. Paper and bonds will be rendered next to worthless after the transition takes place. Trade deals will begin to settle in gold or currency backed by gold. Western domination is dying fast. The City of London is the financial monster of the world and Russia has a great deal of real estate in London. LONDON LOVES RUSSIA. The Chinese own >60% of commercial real estate in Manhattan. Tension will push China to dump their real estate and Russia would dump theirs which would collapse the US economy in a flash.

    There you go, that’s from the inside. I’d have to write an entire article to fill in all the blanks. Add that to your thinking process.

    Keep the faith! Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.

    God bless,

    Mark

    Yes China depends on the US economically. For now.
    They also know it is a road to ruin.

    But what would you do if you knew your economic future
    was dependent on a totally screwed up entity that you know
    is going to crash, one way or another, in the near future?

    What you would do is:
    1. Attempt to gain as much control as possible of the upcoming crash.
    2. Position yourself to come up as high on the rubble pile as possible.
    3. Establish alternative consumers to the US, including your own country if you are China.

    China knows the US is a lost cause and is posturing to be a part of
    forging the “new world order”.

    Any government or country in the world should know that you want
    to distance yourself as much as possible from the US to be prepared
    for the upcoming crash, event, whatever you want to call it.

    Dear Dave Hodges:
    Thank you for this article; most of us that follow your website and are awake, agree with you. From your articles people should read Isaiah 17 – Damascus shall be no more, a ruinous heap. Damascus is the oldest city in the world since the dawn of civilization. Also, Petrodollar history shows, America attacked Iraq (Saddam Hussain), because he wanted Euros for oil. Libya (Gadaffiye) wanted gold for his oil, NATO (US proxy) attacked. Iran sells its oil for gold. Syria is an oil transport corridor, like Ukraine is. Syria and Iran, also do NOT have a FEDERAL RESERVE private type bank. Thus the banksters and globalists must destroy Syria and Iran to bring them under the western (American) hegemony to break them. Putin and Obama, as Dave Hodges vividly illustrates is setting up Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38 – 39 and America’s collapse. Also the circumstances for Europe as Dave Hodges explains means Europe for many reasons will fall away from America. This European turmoil results in the biblical, book of Revelation, rise of the final revived Roman Empire, as described in Revelation 13 and 17 and is analogous to the statue of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in the book of Daniel. As a hint, biblically, China will side with Russia. The 21st century will belong to a 10 nation confederacy of the European Union (EU), though for a very short time. God bless you Dave and may the power of Jesus Christ continue to do his work in you. Thanks, Norbert.

    Just as the Bible predicted, thousands of years ago, the alliances have been formed, in preparation for the Battles of Gog and Magog, not to mention the beginning of the 7-year horror show which is called “a time of distress such as never was, since there was a nation.” Daniel 12:1. Get ready; be prepared. The Bible has never been wrong in even one tiny detail, regarding the 500+ prophecies already fulfilled; the other 500 will occur in precise fashion, just as God has said. Turn to Jesus for free gift of eternal life and pardon from sins, while you still have time, which is running out for you who have rejected the God of heaven. “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts chapter 2.

    Message to Kiev: THE SAME BANKSTERS WHO HAVE BEEN ROBBING THE USA FOR THE PAST HUNDRED YEARS IN JUST THE FIRST WEEK STOLE YOUR 33 TONS OF GOLD – SOUNDS LIKE A VERY REWARDING FUTURE FOR YOU. Great great analysis Mr Hodges. I had wondered why Mr Putin took so long to secure Crimea. I have been living in the good old USA so long that I forgot what doing things in a legal manner was. Putin must take the Ukraine quickly and decisively and not get bogged down. The west would immediately “liberate” Syria and its natural gas. How much gold does Syria have? Good question. For such a barbaric relic it seems everytime the west steals a country the first thing that is acquired is gold. Remember the marines scraping the gold off Sadam’s castle?

    Have you considered that maybe that missing plane will be used against Russia? Remember the Saudi leader stating that he had control over the islamic terrorist in and around Russia? Now we are hearing that that plane may be in Taliban hands? Maybe the event will be against Russia.

    A nuke on a commercial jet that was highjacked and under Taliban control, detonated above the Russian homeland just in time to prevent an effective response from Putin!

    What say you?

    Everytime I put this up on someones website as a response it never gets posted. I am really interested to see if you allow this question to appear in your comments.

    One of the cardinal principles of war, if not the cardinal principle, is if any nation fights a war for the benefit of another entity that nation is the ultimate loser. Except for the American revolutionary war, the war of 1812 and maybe the Mexican war of the 1840’s, every war including the American civil war were fought for the benefit others. The Spanish/American war fought under false pretense and was the beginning of the American imperium. The first phase, circa 1917, of the great war of the 20th and 21st century was fought to establish Jewish Bolshevik Communism in Russia with the killing of the of the entire royal family in the basement of some out of the way house.
    The 2nd phase of the great war, circa 1940, was fought to save Bolshevik USSR from the anti-communist Nazis and Japanese for to benefit of international finance. Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and now Syria and soon Iran and maybe a nationalist Russia under Putin, is the 3rd and final phase of this great war now in progress and the American people will again be the losers.
    Who are the winners? In the end nobody. Short term, the international banking elite, the very same ones who took over Russia in 1917 and who many Americans still bow and grovel to.

    Putin could do everyone in the world a favor by turning the KGB on the NWO banksters. In fact, whether he does it or not is a test for me of whether this is a sincere conflict or if both sides are reading from the same NWO script.

    Dave help me out here…
    I have seen at least 2 video clips online of politicians saying they’re going to crash the dollar, one of them apparently from an interview with a senior member of the Obama administration, where he said “we’re just going to kill the dollar”.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F7bM63ZfWQ
    This directly contradicts what you’re saying here, doesn’t it?

    The fix is in ! The dollar is dead its worthless ! We have collapsed financially ! You cant borrow money from yourself ! You dont bail out banks and then have those Banks buy our Treasurys (Debt). This is global plan the whole world (big players) has to dump the dollar and buy gold and silver. Thus Silver and gold manipulated down in price on the paper side to bring down the Physical metal. China Russia India etc are HOARDING gold . When the metals dry up and the big players have the Lions share of gold. The fed ( is the world bank of these criminals ) will simply stop printing then, Poof ! It all crumbles and then the golden rule comes into play Those with the gold make the Rules and will set the market price of the new GOLD backed currency. Those with the gold will name their price $10,000,$100,000 (unknown currency) an ounce for this new currency, These wars are manufactured by the fed/central banks to control the whole worlds currency .The dumping of the treasuries will bring on the invasion(already planned ) of the debt holders to reclaim their losses and divide and dismantle the U.S. Everybody knows this and guess who is the last one to know? Us the Peasants/sheeple the gullible Americans. These invading countrys are chanting YES WE CAN !!!

    Cute that they played the “Internationale” at the end of Putin’s big speech. He’s finally confident enough to show his real colors. For a very long time, of course, this was the national anthem of the Soviet Union. Then the Soviets were themselves confident enough to bastardize the lyrics of the older anthem.
    As far as I can see, this is part and parcel of KGB planning and praxis from the 1950’s. See J.R. Nyquist On World War III http://thespiritoftruth.blogspot.com/2012/02/jr-nyquist-on-world-war-three.html; Anatoly Golitsyn’s The Perestroika Deception, 199 et seq. http://www.spiritoftruth.org/The_Perestroika_Deception.pdf http://thespiritoftruth.blogspot.com/2009/05/russias-secret-war-plans.html (Lunev was the highest ranking defector ever) While I do not endorse all of the metaphysical observations of this blog’s author, the so-called John Adams, he has done a masterful work in organizing online these resources.

    Hold the chicken little paranoia.
    The worst danger comes from the impotent leadership in the usa.
    Russia does not want a conflict with the west or a territorial expansion. They want to be left alone.
    We already have tapes of Nuland conspiring to overthrow the elected government.

    China owns about 65 percent of premium NYNY Manhatten real estate. They have purchased tons of real estate all over our country. They own a lot of USA. Its too their benefit that we thrive and not dive. If USA dives they go down too. Notice how OIL is going down? Russia needs 100 dollar oil. 95% of all adult Russians are on heroin or vodka in excess. USA could be isolationists if necessary; with our natural resources, etc… All in all this is a GOD thing. With the blink of God’s eye USA is over. In this kinetic world of chaos, our only true deliverance is God. PRAY!

    If the pipelines was blown in Ukraine to where Germany, France, and Italy couldn’t receive FUEL from Russia then the only way the UNITED STATES could benefit from this is if we was to use HEMP FUEL to ship to Germany,France, and Italy. HEMP FUEL could be sold at a $2.00/ GALLON compared to GASOLINES $3.00++ per GALLON! ONE ACRE OF HEMP PLANTS COULD MAKE 300 GALLONS OF FUEL!!

    Dave, I agree, this is a scripted plan. Fox hit the nail on the head, Obama picks NCAA Brackets and Putin redraws Russia’s borders. As far as freezing out our NATO Allies, if Russia collapses our dollar we’ll be freezing before them! I feel like we’re in a movie just living our lives with an impending disaster just around the corner. Only a hand full of people are aware of thier surroundings while the rest go about their daily lives without a clue. Scary!

    Maybe its just a trick of the light. I can hardly see any sand in the upper part of the hour glass.
    Talk about sobering times. The world situation has taken on a life of its own. Kind of like when a robot would become self aware. I believe we will witness world wide anarchy as an end result of current events. All of mankind will be brought to their knees. By the weight of the trouble. The seeming hopelessness. The loss and despair. We are talking real education and wisdom here. The hard way. Preparing the way for the Millennium. Our Lord knows how to influence public opinion also. With the lessons learned now, combined with the lessons we learn in the Millennium, we will all have a chance to make an informed decision as to who we surrender our hearts to. Many people cut God’s plans short. They do not see that the human race will be taught righteousness during the Millennium. Most don’t understand that when they face the final judgment at the close of the Millennium they will be armed with Wisdom and Experience to guide them in there final test of loyalty. On the one hand its over. On the other hand its just beginning. I think it was CEO that wrote “I love my patriot Brothers and Sisters.” I join my voice with his. May God bless and keep us all in His care.

    Dave, the only way I can see us fixing the dollar problem is if the U.S. Gov/ State Gov’s mandate compensation for labor being paid in dollars directly issued by the Treasury. Right now we have an ungrounded system. All wages/compensation are paid in Federal Reserve Notes aka Bank Credit. This also supports the Fed Dollar and the Gov Bonds that secure the Fed Dollar. Unfortunately it severely undermines the people of this country in that 40% (at least) of their pay is immediately stolen via SSA/Medicare/State and Federal withholding. The only option available at this time to be paid in Treasury generated (debt free) dollars is via the token circulation coinage produced by the mint. All of the other forms of (debt free) dollars issued directly by the government were removed from circulation by 1972, starting with gold coin/certificates in 1933, silver coin/certificates in 1968, and US Notes/Greenbacks in 1972. The income taxes collected now on wages are because we are using “bank notes” that are not issued directly under the control of Congress.

    This court case explains it all: http://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/75/533/case.html

    The meat and potatoes of the decision: “It cannot be doubted that under the Constitution, the power to provide a circulation of coin is given to Congress. And it is settled by the uniform practice of the government and by repeated decisions that Congress may constitutionally authorize the emission of bills of credit. It is not important here to decide whether the quality of legal tender, in payment of debts, can be constitutionally imparted to these bills; it is enough to say that there can be no question of the power of the government to emit them, to make them receivable in payment of debts to itself, to fit them for use by those who see fit to use them in all the transactions of commerce, to provide for their redemption, to make them a currency, uniform in value and description, and convenient and useful for circulation. These powers until recently were only partially and occasionally exercised. Lately, however, they have been called into full activity, and Congress has undertaken to supply a currency for the entire country.

    The methods adopted for the supply of this currency were briefly explained in the first part of this opinion. It now
    consists of coin, of United States notes, and of the notes of the national banks. Both descriptions of notes may be properly described as bills of credit, for both are furnished by the government, both are issued on the credit of the government, and the government is responsible for the redemption of both, primarily as to the first description, and immediately upon default of the bank as to the second. When these bills shall be made convertible into coin at the will of the holder, this currency will perhaps satisfy the wants of the community in respect to a circulating medium as perfectly as any mixed currency that can be devised.

    Having thus, in the exercise of undisputed constitutional powers, undertaken to provide a currency for the whole country, it cannot be questioned that Congress may constitutionally secure the benefit of it to the people by appropriate legislation. To this end, Congress has denied the quality of legal tender to foreign coins, and has provided by law against the imposition of counterfeit and base coin on the community. To the same end, Congress may restrain by suitable enactments the circulation as money of any notes not issued under its own authority. Without this power, indeed, its attempts to secure a sound and uniform currency for the country must be futile.”

  54. Plowboy March 20, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    I think that it is worthwhile to point out that none of this would have been possible if not for the political theater involving the phony collapse of the ex-Soviet Union which covered for the massive injection of capital from the Powers That Be and their crony capitalists into the newly free and democratic Russian nation.

  55. Barbie-Que March 21, 2014 at 3:55 am

    Most all very plausible scenario. But I come from a different angle. I believe there is a concerted effort among many puppet masters who together have written the play that is being played out by all nations and people. In the 80’s Russia & China sign a secret treaty the world barely yawned at, though they had always been mortal enemies. It was the World’s leaders that formed and made a way for Isreal and her people to inhabit land in one location. All money systems are man made, even when backed by gold standard. Everything in political realms is part of the bigger picture of men wheeling and dealing for influence and power behind closed doors. Perhaps the jockeying of many uprising is a concerted effort among them all to bring to power one “man” to rule over all. Plan together to destabilize the entire world, then some entity “world” leader with complicit nation leaders are willingly in cahoots and subject themselves for peace, financial, and social order. I believe the little “o” is but one of these puppets. Putin another. Remember the Mike still on insident? “Wait until after the election, when I’ll have more…” (With a promise) Wishful thinking or did he KNOW he was going to win? Then how did he know? He knows the script of the puppet masters which he is playing. In one scene “national health care”, heck one scenes have been written for everything social and political is brought under one accomplished through none other than our Gestapo like agencies (Zeus will do, or else!) the the puppeteers have blatantly built up. Any resistance to their one world government is like a yawn to them. Their show will go on. Big question. What will they do with Isreal? How easier to manipulate an entire group of the most hated people than to bring them together all in one tiny place. Russia, China, U.S., Venezuela, Canada, Austrailia are all in it together while behind the scenes a group are holding the strings. How else could such a little man come to lead this nation lest he to be a puppet.
