Is the Grift Worth Nuclear War?
The ruling class of The United States of Enron will gladly destroy humanity to stay in power; like Milton's devil, they would rather reign in hell than serve in heaven...
Ready to die for the Ponzi Scheme known as the Federal Reserve? Or maybe we’ll survive and merely face a post-apocalyptic hellscape of famine, nuclear winter, long-term blackouts, infrastructure collapse, and so forth. All to save the grift known as the U.S. Dollar.
As the not-so-great 20th-Century poet Puff Daddy once observed, “It’s all about the Benjamin’s, baby (uh huh, yeah).” And that appears to be true of the American attack on Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines, just as it has been true of America’s forever wars, the CIA-sponsored color revolutions (including the one in Ukraine in 2014 that gave us the Zalensky regime), the “Green Energy” Inc. movement that has put the populations of America’s European satrapies on the verge of freezing to death this winter, etc. Doesn’t matter how many people suffer and die, as long as the United States of Enron’s war-on-humanity machine keeps churning out profits for the elites.
So to keep Germany from backing down and buying fuel from Russia (ungood) in rubles (double-plus ungood), America (either directly on its own or indirectly through one of its proxies) attacked Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines, which is the one thing that had given Russia leverage over Germany. This leverage was important because Russia had seemingly hoped to get Germany to stop participating in the American-led sanctions and to stop supporting Ukraine with subsidies and armaments. And now that Russia’s leverage over Germany is gone, the possibility of getting Ukraine to the bargaining table to stop the war has effectively been dynamited, just like the pipelines.
Of course, the USA is denying responsibility — after President Biden and Victoria Nuland had promised that America would do it, and after Secretary Blinken crowed about what a great opportunity the pipelines’ destruction gave America. But forget about all that, the official explanation will probably involve the pipelines committing suicide, like Jeffrey Esptein…
But seriously, folks . . .
For real, the Fed’s modern monetary theory-driven game of musical chairs is about to end, and we’re short a whole lot of seats. And the fiddler will be demanding payment in full for that ride we’ve been on the past few decades.
