A frog and a scorpion meet at the water’s edge of a small river. They both want to get to the other side.
“Friend Froggie,” says the scorpion. “You know I cannot swim. How about you give me a ride to the other side of the river?”
“Not a chance!” replied the frog. “You’ll sting me and I’ll die.”
“But Mister Frog, don’t you see? If I sting you while we’re in the water, we’ll both die.” Doesn’t make sense, does it?”
“I suppose not,” said the frog. So the scorpion hopped aboard and the frog entered the river.
About half way across, the scorpion stung the frog.
“What did you do THAT for?” cried the frog. “Now we are both going to drown.”
Said the scorpion, “I couldn’t help myself. IT’S MY NATURE to sting frogs, even if it means my own death.”
Just after WWII, Washington made a deal with the Saudi royal family. DC agreed to protect Saudi Arabia from its neighbors under the condition that the Saudis only accept US Dollars as payment for Saudi oil. The other condition was that the Saudis had to park some of their profits in the US by buying up US Treasury bonds.
So the deal was made, and the US Dollar became the world reserve currency for settling international oil transactions. Over time, the nations of the world began using the Dollar to settle other debts, and the Dollar grew in strength and importance.
But in 1971, Richard Nixon de-coupled the US Dollar from gold. By 1974, inflation has begun, and does anyone remember the OPEC oil embargo? That was the first reaction by the oil producers to being tied to fiat Dollars…stung by the DC scorpion…and the price of oil has never been the same since.
Fast-forward 40 years. Over that period of time, there has been no other world currency that had the chance to supplant the Dollar as world reserve. So over the last 40 years, Washington has flooded the earth with its bogus currency. Inflation has become so much a part of life that we all factor in the inflation rate to determine what our net return is when we invest money.
Take this back to our little story. The world cut a deal with Washington to use the Dollar as world reserve currency. But it is not in Washington’s nature to keep the faith. It is not in Washington’s nature to keep its promises. It is not in Washington’s nature to protect property rights, and the most important property right is the value of the Dollar.
However, it IS Washington’s nature to steal, and break promises, and betray others, and NEVER tell the truth, and make war.
Even when stealing, breaking promises, betrayal, lying and war will cause you to lose EVERYTHING…Washington CANNOT change its NATURE.
ALL Washington would have had to do was protect the VALUE of the Dollar and the USA could have reigned the world for a thousand years.
But Washington could not. It HAD to be true to its nature, even if it meant its own death as a nation.
The BRICS nations, led by China, are moving steadily toward the establishment of a new world reserve currency, which will be the Chinese Renminbi. It will be backed once again by gold. The nations of the world will pivot to China seemingly overnight. And once that happens, any person, bank, investor or nation holding US Dollars will experience a monetary collapse that will make the Zimbabwe collapse look like kindergarten.
I can envision the Beijing government seated at a long table with whichever President of the US is in office, while Beijing trades in its holdings of US Treasuries for the titles and deeds for real property owned by the Federal Government. Like national parks, which is most of the Western states…and other Federal land holdings around the world. And the Chinese, being shrewd negotiators, will dictate fire sale prices for Washington’s property. It will be the quietest, most orderly overthrow of a government in the history of the world.
At that point, after the Dollar has collapsed, Washington will have no money but its own, which nations will be loathe to accept for payment for anything. So DC will be unable to go to war to prevent the Chinese from wresting away the world reserve currency status from the DC Dollar. The United States of America will exist in name only, since DC will have no assets, no money, no gold and no remaining power.
I just hope DC keeps a post office box at a UPS Store so they can get their mail.
Remember the verse in Proverbs 22:7; “the borrower is the servant of the lender.”
TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) doesn’t mean that the Earth somehow gets destroyed. It just means that the AMERICAN world is over, and the Chinese world will emerge. China has been around as a nation for millennia, and the USA didn’t last 250 years.
Let’s see how well China protects the value of the Renminbi. If it does, the wealth of the planet will flow into China.
And, if any US State can secede, and establish a gold-backed money, it will have a chance of a future also.
Secession is the only solution for individual liberty and property rights in North America.
