The Grand Chessboard of World War III

After the economic collapse, what comes next? Answer: The grand chess board of World War III!

This article is not for the faint of heart. If one desires to keep on burying their head in the sand, then go watch the NFL Playoffs. Of course, if we do not collectively wake up the majority of sheep which inhabit this country and motivate them to action against the globalists, the acronym “NFL” will soon come to mean Not For Long.  And “Not For Long” will soon represent how long the sheeple of this country can keep their heads buried in the sand as the country disintegrates into total chaos. No amount of cognitive dissonance, normalcy bias and general apathy can protect even the most unaware Americans as to what lies in their immediate future.

The ISIS Factor

CNN and Wolf Blitzer’s 115,000 average number of listeners as well as the rest of the mainstream media have been treated to the fiction, since last summer, that ISIS was the beneficiary of high grade military equipment “accidentally” left behind by our military when we pulled out of Iraq. This explanation is laughable and does not even fit the criteria for a bad cover story. Yet, the MSM has fallen right into line and has not dared to question the official narrative.

It is standard operating procedure for the American military to destroy the weapons that are left behind in a theater of war. In recent times, this work has been contracted out to private corporations. I have spoken with a man who was contracted to do this work in Iraq. The task of his team was to destroy the weapons in three different locations out of a possible set of sites that numbered about three dozen. My contact’s group was in the process of destroying weapons when the CIA showed up and ordered them to stand down. The rest, as they say, is history as these became the weapons that ended up in the hands of ISIS. The mechanized vehicles were used as transport vehicles that the private contractors were instructed by the CIA to load with weapons, ammunition and supplies. What he told me next should send chills up and down the collective spines of every air traveler. Hundreds of crates of RPG’s were loaded on the supply trucks and shipped to ISIS. This is how sophisticated America military hardware ended up in the hands of ISIS instead of being destroyed.

Private American contractors were involved in the transport of these weapons to “exchange points”. The contractors were told that the weapons were being handed off to elements of the Iraqi military. I was told that not one contractor believed the CIA created cover story. The weapons were always designed to fall into the hands of ISIS.

More Boots On the Ground In the Middle East

I have periodic contact with a person, which I have learned, has both a nephew and a son in the Middle East and both are in the Army. What I have learned is that there is a massive buildup of troops in both Kuwait and Jordan. The Army is forming massive assault units (i.e. offensive vs. defensive) in Kuwait. In Jordan, both F-35’s and F-16’s are arriving in a  base in Jordan. I was able to confirm the buildup of troops and planes in the Middle East from one of my military contacts. What I have also learned is that the prevailing belief is that fighting ISIS will provide the excuse to put boots on the ground into Syria as a means to effect regime change. This is the “Plan B” to what Obama was unable to accomplish in the Fall of 2013 when the United States was unable to successfully “frame”  the Syrian President, Bashar Hafez al-Assad, for the use of chemical weapons against government dissidents in Syria.

Assad’s days are numbered. Whether it is ISIS that takes down Assad, or it is the American military, it will not matter, there will be regime change in Syria. Obama’s handlers will then be free to install a puppet government. Syrian oil will be seized as was the case in Iraq. When Syria is subjugated, according to Obama’s plan, Iran can be leveraged more effectively. Iran is the ultimate goal. Why? Because the solvency of the Federal Reserve is being threatened and to understand the roots of the coming world war and the roll out of tyrannical martial law, over this issue, I need to take a brief look at the historical underpinnings.

The Birth of the Petrodollar

A novel system for monetary and exchange rates was established in 1944. The Bretton Woods Agreement was developed at the United Nations Monetary and  Financial Conference held in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, from July 1-22, 1944. This conference established the US dollar as the reserve currency of the world.

The Banksters (e.g. Rockefellers’) reveled in their new found fortune. As a result of the Bretton Woods Conference, all nations desiring to purchase Middle East oil had to first purchase dollars and use these dollars to complete the purchase of oil.

Nearly everyone inside of our country benefited from this system. Americans basically enjoyed a stable currency minus the inflation rates of about 5% per year which served as an informal tax that went into the Federal Reserve banksters’  pockets. Thus, the Petrodollar was born. If the Petrodollar were to ever be successfully undermined, our currency would sink faster than a submarine with screen doors because there is nothing backing up our money.

The old guard at the Federal Reserve worked from 1913 to 1971 to rid the economy of the Gold Standard so that they could enforce debt slavery upon the American people and government through encouraging a prolonged out of control spending spree accompanied by the awarding of lucrative unbid contracts to the elite’s corporations which would dramatically drive up the deficit and line the pockets of the Federal Reserve owners.

The coming war with Syria is merely the opening act. The main act, following Syrian subjugation, will consist of the United States and Israel and Britain attacking Iran. Iran is the prize needed for the old guard of the Federal Reserve to maintain its strangle hold on the global economy. On the surface, attacking Iran seems like a good idea if it will preserve our economy. However, the risks associated with this course of action are astronomical. The leadership at the Federal Reserve believes that Iran must undergo a regime change in order for the dollar to survive and avoid the ravages of hyperinflation.

Why Every American Should Fixate On This Issue

The Petrodollar is in real trouble and so is your bank account, your job, your ability to get gas, medicine, food and water. America is literally a push button away from economic destruction. In the eyes of the Federal Reserve and Goldman Sachs, the Petrodollar must be maintained at all costs, even at the cost of fighting a world war.

On the Precipice of WWIII

Syria is the first real domino in the coming conflict that threatens all life on this planet. The take down of Egypt and Libya was mere foreplay. The real action will commence when the ISIS conflict spills over into Syria and topples Assad.

Make no mistake about it, America is headed towards war with Syria and don’t think for a second that this war will imitate, in any way, the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan. The previous wars compared to Syria, and later with Iran, is child’s play compared to anything we have been involved with in the history of this nation. The “saving the Petrodollar” strategy being pursued by the Federal Reserve is a high stakes gamble with you, your children and the future of humanity being used as their collateral.

Because all roads to Tehran run through Damascus, Iran is the actual target of the Federal Reserve’s war intentions, because Iran is doing the unthinkable as it is waging war on the old guard of the New World Order, by selling its oil to Russia, China and India for gold and this is a dire threat to the solvency of the dollar. ISN’T IT INTERESTING THAT ISIS SURFACED, ARMED WITH AMERICAN WEAPONRY, ONLY A SHORT-TIME AFTER A DIRECT INVASION OF SYRIA WAS REJECTED BY POPULAR WORLD AND AMERICAN OPINION? HOW MANY OF THESE “COINCIDENCES” DOES IT TAKE TO FORM A LEGITIMATE CONSPIRACY? AND NOW THE WAY INTO SYRIA IS THROUGH TERRORISTS SUPPLIED AND TRAINED BY THE CIA!

First Syria, Then Iran

Before one can invade Iran, with the threat of Russian intervention looming, Syria must first be occupied and fortified by US/NATO forces. Occupying Syria allows America and her allies to invade Iran from several directions. Through Syria, we will see air-strikes which will fly unimpeded over Northern Iraq.  Also, and most importantly, the occupation of Syria will be a threat to the mobilization of forces inside of Russia who would then come under the American long and short range missile batteries, which will be installed in Syria. These missiles will surely be armed with battlefield nuclear warheads. This deterrent could provide the Americans with enough time to occupy most of Iran before Russia or China could act with its conventional forces. This strategy, however, dares the Chinese and Russians to not invoke the use of large scale nuclear weapons in the biggest game of chicken ever played on this planet.

The Unexpected Twists and Turns of the Coming World War

I do not expect China to attack the U.S. in the Middle East, at least not at first. Most experts, instead, expect the Chinese to move on Taiwan.

I never thought that elements of the Red Dawn scenario would ever come to fruition, but how many times have we seen the media tell us what is going to transpire in advance of an event?  However, if China is determined to make good on its threats to attack the U.S., then the Red Dawn scenario is in play. And while we are at it, I would anticipate that China would approach the Southwestern underbelly of the United States via Central America, given that the Chinese control the Panama Canal and are rumored to have troops throughout Central America, including Mexico. And if things really go crazy, all sides may launch its ICBM missiles and their submarine based nuclear missiles at each other’s homeland and then all bets are off.  Perhaps, you now know why I constantly refer these criminal banksters who have hijacked our government as psychopathic.

Iran Is Public Enemy Number One

Because of Iran’s threat to the Petrodollar, Iran occupies a similar, but much more dangerous position than did Iraq in 2001. As we now all know, 9/11 provided the motivation to invade Iraq. No, Iraq was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks and President Bush did admit as much. But that did not prevent Bush from capitalizing on the emotion from  9/11 so that America would confuse the issues and tacitly accept the invasion of Iraq in which the Iraqi’s were lumped together with all Middle Eastern nations who “want to kill us because of our freedoms.”

Specifically, why did Iraq have to be invaded? Simple, Saddam Hussein was attempting to sell his oil in currency other than  Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. the Euro). He was threatening the Federal Reserve and at that time, he was also a threat to the central bankers in their headquarters, otherwise known as the Bank of International Settlements, which controls all central banking.  During that time frame, these banksters would have done anything to prevent a threat to the world’s reserve currency, namely the dollar, which they controlled.

Following the completion of the second Iraq war, Exxon and BP controlled 80% of Iraqi oil fields and nobody would be selling Iraqi oil in either the Euro or for gold. However, the game has changed, Iran has replaced Iraq as the major threat to the stability of the Federal Reserve Notes.

Iran is economically destroying the U.S. Unfortunately for every man, woman and child in America, that day of economic reckoning is quickly approaching. China has commenced buying Iranian oil in gold. India has followed suit, as have the Russians. The days of the Petrodollar are numbered and therefore, so is the only source of backing of our dollar. Have you and your family prepared for the collapse of the dollar and ultimately the collapse of society? It is coming and it coming fast.

The Russians and the Chinese Have Warned the U.S.

Creating the pretext for fighting a war, and then successfully selling the American public on the need to fight the war, is one thing. However, winning the war, is quite another. How serious are the Chinese and Russians at standing up to the imperialistic United States? Considering that both Chinese President Hu and Major General Zhang Zhaozhong have threatened the United States with nuclear war if they invade Iran, the prudent opinion says that this is the newest version of the “Axis of Evil’s” line in the sand, and it has been clearly drawn. While all eyes are on Ukraine, the real prize and the key to the solvency of the BRICS is Iran and its willingness to accept gold for oil payments.


The Dawn of the American Empire

America is in a very difficult dilemma. If we acquiesce to the Russian and Chinese threat of war for invading Iran, our dollar will collapse. The Federal Reserve will not back down. They have already killed Gaddafi and Hussein in order to preserve the Petrodollar. They are not going to back down to the Iranians, Chinese and Russians because it will not be their children doing the fighting and dying, it will be our children. Now, does it make sense on why the elite are driving down the price of Gold so they can buy up as much as they can for as cheaply as they can? They intend to be the last men standing at the end of the next great war to end all wars.

And just how will the elite sell us on war? You can bet there will be more false flag events, with each one being more horrific than the previous one. And guess who will get the blame? It does not take a rocket scientist to accurately speculate that the last of the false flag events will be nuclear and then all hell will break loose.


It is clear, it is hands off Iran or it means WWIII.  And with Putin shutting off gas to Europe, the world took a big step towards to the next world war. Does anyone really think that the Federal Reserve is going to take this lying down? Could the path to WWIII be the reason that so many bankers have left the United States because they know what is coming?

    Hi Dave,

    I always enjoy your posts and your radio show. I have learned much from them. In the your last sentence of this post, you reference many bankers leaving the US because they know what is coming. I have a friend in banking that I would like to give more information to and hopefully they will “wake up”. Can you provide some links or other info showing bankers leaving the US?

    Thanks so much!

    heres what im wondering and maybe the answer is simple and ill be like oh yeah duh!
    but if the govt or forces that control the govt are purposly collapsing
    the economy then why would they even bother keeping the petro dollar going?

    Let’s take a look at the Deagel list recently published:

    Is the forecast for 2025 realistic ? No, it’s not, because long before the wages in the US would fall that deep, all the major producing companies of the world would rush to the US to build up production capacity.

    Gold is recognized Worldwide by Nation states as a true currency. Paper Gold and other factors have kept gold suppressed in price. Which allows for the stockpiling by nations to occur at a maximum rate.
    I think that as we get closer to the financial tilt, the economic collaspes will parse off in a different direction from gold.
    I see a Worldwide reset based on nations Gold holdings and a new valuation from this.
    Just my thoughts

    If the fed and banksters tries to intervene in the demise of the petrodollar, WW3 will ensue.
    It is hard to believe though, that the banksters and the elite cannot see that they will come out of their bunkers to a dead and toxic world, leaving no opportunity to spend those piles of billions of dollars!

    This would indicate true psychopathic thinking powered by abject greed and insolence!

    Obama has remained mostly silent regarding the attacks in France and Belgium and the resulting anti muslum rhetoric in the mainstream press. Could it be that he is getting cold feet and no longer playing ball with the military and the bankers in their upcoming war plans? Or is this part of the intrigue and distraction? Quien sabe? I wish someone with some power would round up all these old power freaks, put them on a cruise ship and use it for bombing practice off the coast of hell.

    Warning of Nuclear War

    Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 @ 03:00

    My daughter, you are suffering because of the Work you are doing on My behalf. The darkness you feel is coming from the deceiver, who strikes every hour through others – people you know – through his darkness – to attack you. Despite your feelings of despair, you are, in fact, being protected. He, the deceiver, I have told you will not harm your soul. You must continue to pray the Most Holy Rosary for constant protection from torment. By praying this powerful adoration to My Blessed Mother you will see a difference.

    The Work, which you strive to continue to complete on My behalf, is not easy, but you must stay strong, My daughter. For it is the Work, that when revealed to the world, will bring peace and contentment to My children.

    They, My children, when they understand the Truth, will know they are not being thrown asunder and forgotten by their Creator. The comfort they will experience, through the knowledge I will give them through this Book, will draw them closer to Me.

    Plan for the War ahead

    Fear not, My daughter, you are safe, though you do feel powerless and fear uncertainty. The world, including your own country, is about to experience more pain as a result of global control, which will render people powerless, so this is why it is important to prepare now.

    I have told you before that you must tell My children to start to plan now before the fearsome global war commences. The war, which I speak about, is being orchestrated by the Red Dragon, now. The Dragon, the new world energy, is scheming now and will destroy cities in the West. The time is close. Pray, pray for conversion as this evil cannot be stopped, as there is not enough prayer to prevent it. Pray for those souls, who through this nuclear war, will die.

    Three Years before the Plot Unfolds

    Pray for those souls, now. As a global power takes over gently, with a false compassion, they will, My daughter, aim to control your freedom to live, eat and pray. That is why My people must strive to become self-sufficient. Grow your food. Find shelters, in time, where you can meet to give homage to your Divine Saviour. Just keep strong. Don’t tell too many people why you are doing this. It will take only three years for the signs of this plot to unfold before your eyes. By then your plans will yield a form of support, which you may have questioned and thought, from time to time, as being strange. Grow your own food now. Buy the seeds that will not be available for sale in the future, now. This will feed your family as the global famine takes place.

    Go now and prepare.

    Your loving Saviour
    Jesus Christ

    9/11 was a false flag event. The US gov set up Al Qaeda decades ago. Now they armed ISIS, and I’m sure it is more than that.

    Yet, American fools wave their flags and support the fake wars that empower the Federal Reserve and military contractors. I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, “My son is fighting for YOUR freedom!” Sad and pathetic. “American Sniper” is getting rave reviews while keeping the American public brainwashed, just like that recent North Korea flick. Thanks, Clint Eastwood, for keeping the military industrial complex alive and well! Maybe more young men will be motivated to risk their lives for the Rothschild empire!

    This country deserves what is coming.

    “After the economic collapse, what comes next? Answer: The grand chess board of World War III!”

    Economic collapse is followed by Cashless Society and martial law; this is because cashless society is a pivotal aspect of martial law enforcement and normalizes acceptance or tolerance of increasingly outright authoritarian governance regardless of the outcome of the world war.

    “Of course, if we do not collectively wake up the majority of sheep which inhabit this country and motivate them to action against the globalists, the acronym “NFL” will soon come to mean Not For Long.”

    With the expanding enforcement of the guidelines ‘compliance to governmental authorities and agencies’ and ‘waiver of religious and philosophical grounds of refusal’, I don’t see the ‘sheep waking up’

    “This is the “Plan B” to what Obama was unable to accomplish in the Fall of 2013 when the United States was unable to successfully “frame” the Syrian President, Bashar Hafez al-Assad, for the use of chemical weapons against government dissidents in Syria.”

    Well, Syria was Plan B on the map after Pakistani-Sino forced the US and the West to contend with the Iranian-Syrian western counter pincer through their mutual defense pact.
    Iran is the pivot point for BRICS as well as one of the last remaining obstacles to Russia’s southern underbelly and containment of China.

    Dear Dave,
    Most people don’t want to accept it, but America, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, et al, will be destroyed along with Israel. I know I will get hate mail but it is the truth.
    If I was going to invade America, I would burst and EMP and then wait one year and then invade because in 1 year @90% of the population would be dean making it much easier for China, Russia, Germany and the rest to come in and seize America. Yes, Germany will be one of the players against the US and if I were you I would watch for massive movements of German aircraft and troops to NM in the next few months.
    Good luck and God bless,

    “if the govt are purposly collapsing the economy then why would they even bother keeping the petro dollar going? ” (great question)

    petrodollar nor gold matter.
    only 2 options of incentives for the elite :
    1.unlimited printing for wars of resources.
    2.or mass sacrifice to satan.

    there is only :
    resources = life
    mass sacrifice = religion

    you must re evaluate your “petrodollar collapse” senario because:
    even if the dollar is not used for oil it can still be printed for wars of resources.
    and regardless ww3 can still be created for mass sacrifice to satan.

    this article makes no sense.

    If I were going to destroy America, I’d use the existing chemtrail spray program , but substitute Cobolt 60 instead of Aluminum and Barium.
    I’d also seed 100 ATMs disbursed around the country with weaponized Anthrax spores, the same ones used after 911 to stifle the investigation.
    90% mortality in 6 months, Cobolt half life 6.5 years.

    Excellent article. Well said. It just shows how evil our country has become. We’ll be willing to exterminate every person on the planet with nukes all because of the petrodollar. If that isn’t evil I don’t know what is. I knew Iran was the grand prize. I thought it had more to do with protecting Israel than the oil there. The reason why we want to overthrow Syria, besides being an alley of Russia and Iran (both being Shi’ite) , is so they can build an oil pipeline to Turkey going through Syria. Again, the US is willing to murder hundreds of thousands of people over an oil pipeline to help the Saudis. Again, if that isn’t evil, I don’t know what is. The US has morphed into the NWO. It all began in 1913 and that’s when the IRS was also established and the Harrison Act banning drugs in 1914. The US couldn’t become a globalist bankster empire collecting taxes and taking over the world until that happened in 1913.

  30. Mike January 19, 2015 at 10:09 am

    think obama is in bed w/ Iranians and the push for control of Syria is for a nat gas pipeline to loosen Russia’s hold on Europe. really interesting stuff. will be very curious in how it all plays out. my guess is obama, by cozying up to the Iranian mullahs, will provoke Israel to do his dirty work. Saudis are already working w/ Israel against Iran. who knows what game obama is playing but you can bet your bottom dollar that it’s not in the best interest of the good ole US of A. Enjoy the next nine months… after that it gets dicey.
