The U.S. dollar’s value rests in the value of oil. That is, the gold standard has been replaced by the oil standard. The Saudis keeping oil pegged to the dollar keeps the value of the dollar from collapsing and the world from moving to a basket of currencies. The dollar’s stability depends on keeping the world from moving to a basket of currencies. A move to a basket of currencies would devastate the economy of the United States. The Iranians and Russians have realized that the only thing holding up the United States economy is the dollar being the deaf to world currency. The most direct non war route to bringing down the United States is to peg oil prices to the dollar. Hence, the hatred exhibited by all in Congress towards Russia and Iran. The Washington elites are well aware that if Saudi drops the dollar, the thread holding economic Sword of Damocles over the economy of the United States would be cut, and the U.S. would have far more in common with Venezuela than not. The Congress will use every excuse and reason to justify a war with Iran and vilifying Russia to keep Saudi oil flowing and Europe from buying Russian gas. Congress is terrified of what will come if the move to currencies other than the dollar were to spread. These greedy, self absorbed members of Congress and their accomplices in the endless Washington DC bureaucracy have put the United States in a peril equal to or worse than what the nation faced during World War 2. And, to make things even worse, these leaders and elites further betrayed you, they turned China (a nation with strong reasons to hate foreigners) into an industrial juggernaut. Thus giving China economic power to join with Russia and Iran to take on the dollar. The greed of the elites who own Congress and all of Washington D.C. including the federal courts miscalculated that they could bribe Chinese officials to do as they wished, and have put the country that protects their collective avarice in worse peril.
Have you not wondered why a Congress openly hostile to Trump begrudgingly backs his taking a hard stance with China? China is now a major threat to the dominance of the United States dollar. As much as Every member of Congress hates Trump, Congress has no choice, but to let him try and break China’s death hold over the United States by weakening China’s industrial base and strengthen the U.S. manufacturing sector. The rich elites willing to allow the income gap to shrink, tells us all just how serious this situation is.
If anyone reading this thinks the Congress will figure a way out of this quagmire, it would be more realistic to expect Jesus Christ to return this month. The Congress and the courts have utterly failed to protect the common good without having to resort to war, sacrificing American soldiers, and pushing the nation deeper into debt. Just as the pointless war in Vietnam did. Yes, the sacrifices made by Americans in human lives and treasure, as well as all those Vietnamese slaughtered was for nothing. The former Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, wrote in his book, Retrospect, they all knew no victory was possible with China sharing a common boarder with Vietnam and there could be no victory without invading North Vietnam. It was well known that China was sending to North Vietnam supplies, weapons, ammunition and support equipment. It was known that many of the Vietnamese fighting in South Vietnam were Chinese soldiers and China had no intention of being pushed into a stalemate as in Korea. This time China had nuclear weapons too. The war and the insanity of the Guns and Butter policy bankrupted the nation forcing Nixon to drop the gold standard pass the costs of America’s fiscal insanity into other countries buying in dollars. It has been a steady slide into insolvency ever since. The United States is playing the old game of staying out of insolvency by floating checks! All the games from Watergate to Trump have simply been acts in a grand vaudeville show to keep you distracted from the economic debacle those you trusted in business, politics and government have brought about, and to keep you from questioning the very necessary wars necessary to prop up a bankrupt nation. The wars are not for freedom, democracy or to end terrorism. America needs the wars to keep the world from dropping the dollar. What a nightmare if real peace came to the Middle East. The dollar would be flushed and the U.S. economy would tumble.
Why the hatred for Trump and those who helped him get elected? Trump has committed the crime of telling the American people that the emperor has no clothes and filled Washington D.C. with dread that his trying to fix the disaster would bring about the inevitable collapse.. Think Venezuela elite living the good life as everyone else goes without work, food, medicine, electricity and most everything else.
This nightmare created by Congress, bureaucrats, judges, and elites is Atlas Shrugged on steroids! You who trusted them to do right by you are not to blame. You are their victims. It is they, the rich elites, politicians, judges and bureaucrats who have betrayed your trust.
Global Warming is there last pathetic attempt to get you to accept collapse if the wars fail and the economy collapses and to not turn on them as the the French peasants did during the French Revolution.
