Bloomberg reported, “U.S. Bank Deposits and Lending Both Dropped Last Week Amid Turmoil. “Deposits fell nearly $126 billion, while bank loans retreated. Decrease in overall lending was largest since June 2021.” It was deliberate. Democrats and RINOs never let a crisis go to waste because a crisis allows them to expand their powers. 9/11 is just one example. Bush and company used it to add a Cabinet-level department, make the unpatriotic PATRIOT Act law, and start two wars they later would abandon.
“It was deliberate”
Damn skippy, it was deliberate! The likes of Steve Cortes, Peter Navarro, Kevin Freeman, et al have been sounding the bank failure alarm ever since the Fed started hiking rates. This is exactly the scenario they predicted and the communists running our economy into the ground have had this as their end game all along. They want to collapse the banking system and centralize all deposits into one government controlled bank. Then they’ll institute their central digital currency and control every dollar we spend. Forget stuffing your money into a mattress and buy more ammo instead.
Another comment I have made several times is: The more the government does to "solve" a problem, the worse the problem gets. The government's two biggest failures to date are how much they spend on solving the 'homeless' crises and drug interdiction programs. I will stand up here all day and say "If all government programs at every level (City, state and federal) stopped giving out "free" money to the junkies, street people and alcoholics, homelessness would end in a day. Instead, you have assholes like the San Francisco county board of directors wanting to spend upwards of $820 BILLION for reparations flooding blacks who have never worked an honest day in their lives lining up to collect their so-called "Share" of free money that the county of San Francisco will NEVER have.
That poll was too easy. Thanks anyway because they are fun
"Had the general public known about Hunter Biden’s laptop that revealed his father being bought off, we would be in the middle of Donald Trump’s second term"
No. They would have just had to manufacture more votes at 4am in GA, PA, AZ, MI, WI.
To deny our elections are 100% fraud is insane. And Biden administration is governing like they don't have to face voters again.. because they don't. Until that is addressed nothing else matters
And thanks for the extra posting today.
Instead of learning how to code, I think we need to learn how to speak Mandarin.
But of course it does. What is happening is planned. I used to think that was nonsense, but not any more. There are too many coincidences and two many weird things happening all at once. And who benefits? Not the voters. The globalists and the elites benefit. I now see the world in two camps: globalists and nationalists. The fascists, communists and totalitarians are in the globalist camp, just to be clear. Trump and the rest of us are in the nationalist (deplorable) camp. I include the environmental, climate-crisis gang in the globalist/facsist/commie camp. What's happening on a large scale is to change the way we live and to destroy centuries of Western civilization. That's how the progressives see it. -- always "progressing." I used to think this was alarmist, but since the COVID pandemic I have completely changed my mind given what we went through. It's a dangerous time.
I hope it is not too late but have my fears.When someone says I am from the government,let me help you should run like your life depends on it because it does.I am so tired of having metal pillows but I feel safe at home.Thank you for the extra Mr.Surber.
And to add gasoline to the flames, OPEC just decided to cut 1.5 million barrels per day of production. Expect Xiden to announce the restarting of Keystone XL in 3....2.... Never mind.
But guess what nation isn't cutting production. Iran. Europe will be buying it under the table or China will.
A second article is such a treat! And I love the little cartoons at the top - always give me a giggle.
I would say it’s more like Fascism creates Crisis. It’s the oxygen it needs to survive and remain in power, ultimately to tyrannize.
I believe we are headed for a total collapse of the economy, not solely because of the banking crises but as a result of the devaluation of the dollar due to losing worlds reserve currency status.
Nation after nation is now beginning to trade in other currencies, particularly in the energy sector, which in turn is destroying the Petro dollar, the linchpin of our status as the worlds reserve currency.
If we lose that status the inflation we have now will look like child’s play, and food and goods shortages will become rampant.
The crash will open the way to ushering in CBDC as everyone will be broker than broke, and cash (dollars) is worthless, thus forcing everyone into the system without which you won’t be able to buy or sell anything. There will be chaos and riots and crime to the extreme that martial law will be a new normal.
It will be Brave New World, 1984, Animal Farm, and Mad Max all rolled into one.
And sooner not later.
"because every (bad word) crisis ends up robbing us of a right."
Yup, which is why I never call anyone crazy for "conspiracy theories." After a while, you have to wonder if they get tired of waiting for a "crisis," so they create one.
Two of the ways to change society are wars and pandemics...
“journey to a cashless society by requiring notification to the IRS of any cash transactions greater than $10,000.” Then they invented "structuring" so they can add all your cash deposits and accuse you of a crime.
Republicans will not 'Fix This' by installing their own fascism OR by shrinking government. First of all they can address it by GETTING ELECTED. I know, what a concept.
To get elected they will have to appeal to a broader array of people than just very conservative Republicans. Yeah. I know, that takes a lot of the 'fun' out of it.
But that's how things work. So forget 'their own fascism' as a choice. Shrinking government per se will not solve most of the problems that most vex me, like the pronoun problem, how and what kids are taught in school, the belief that sex is like a 'choose your own size' paper towel in your kitchen- can choose your own sex!! Shrinking government will not stop that. Also there is cancel culture syndrome prevalent on college campuses (mostly used against conservatives of various sorts)... So there is a lot to fix. There are also rules to promote quota systems. However, if those are killed for fairness school quality must be improved. The biggest failing of Democrats is letting schools in democrat districts become so run down and poorly administered that black children get essentially no education and that is the real source of what they call 'systemic racism.' Yes I blame systemic racism on democrats not on white supremacists whoever or where ever they are. It's the poor school in your neighborhood that is letting you down - not some cartoon White Supremacist in a white hood. And if you are a minority student you are probably represented by a minority Rep who is ignoring your need... You need to get on that person's case- big time!
This country is going to be like the frog in the water. Your daily posts say it over and over.
