When Will The Dollar Be Dethroned? Whose Fault Is It?

Reserve currencies come and go. They usually go because the nation that issues the reserve currency abuses the situation. Delusions of world domination, endless wars and endless welfare are embraced. These terrible ideas are then financed by money that’s created out-of-thin-air. This can go on for awhile, and it usually does, but only until the rest of the world refuses to go along anymore. The U.S. fell into the empire trap a century ago, and the world is starting to say: “That’s enough.”

No Jab? No Job! It’s Still Happening Today!

You think the COVID-19 insanity is over?

Guess again.

Today, March 27th 2023, a young family member informed me that at the very end of her 2-hour job interview this morning (that was going very well) the interviewer told her,

Oh by the way, we require all employees to be vaccinated (with a minimum of two jabs) and you must also have a recent flu shot AND be willing to get a new flu shot every year.

She told me,

They saw the look on my face. I was so disappointed. I really wanted this job and thought I had it but I told them, ‘No Thank You’.

They then told her this was an absolute requirement and they would not budge on it.

And that ended the interview.

I told her I was very proud of her – but then got busy after several minutes of blinding rage.

First, I looked at the company’s website and sure enough they had in their hiring practices the jab requirement. They also had the phrase “or have an approved exemption.”

These “approved exemptions” were not listed, so I got busier.

I contacted a non-vaxxed friend who’s a therapist working in a hospital setting and asked her how she got out of having to get jabbed.

She told me the head of her HR department privately had told her that he also was not vaxxed and all she needed to do was request a religious exemption and he would approve it.

So she did. And she got the exemption. Score one for the Normie Team.

The funny part to me, at least, was she claimed the religious exemption because she’s Catholic. I’m admittedly not current with the state of religious exemptions but – being Catholic was good enough?

Heck, whatever works!

I then contacted a retired lawyer friend to ask if he knew of anyone who could give me more information – particularly dealing with hostile or very uncooperative businesses. I’m currently waiting for that information and this whole episode has made me aware that, for me, this has been a blind spot.

But here’s my immediate thought.

Barbara Honegger on NYT Conceding 1980 “October Surprise” Reagan-Bush White House Whistleblower Vindicated—Four Decades Late

Barbara Honegger on NYT Conceding 1980 “October Surprise” Reagan-Bush White House Whistleblower Vindicated—Four Decades Late

Reagan-Bush White House whistleblower Barbara Honegger, author of the original October Surprise, discusses The New York Times’ belated admission that the “conspiracy theory” about how the 1980 Reagan campaign made a treasonous deal with Iran to keep the hostages locked up long enough to torpedo President Jimmy Carter’s candidacy…has, like so many conspiracy theories, turned out to be true. She writes:

“Barbara Honegger is the author of the pioneering first book on the October Surprise. The day it was published, May 12, 1989, then-President Bush Sr.’s Justice Dept. sued one of the sources for allegedly lying, literally making a federal case out of its claims which it then lost a year later when a federal jury in Portland, Oregon quickly found the source innocent on all 60 charges resulting in national headlines. In August 1988 Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) sponsored a press conference at the National Press Club featuring two speakers, myself on the October Surprise evidence and whistleblower Terry Reed on the Iran/Contra overt arms-and-drugs operation, attended by hundreds of national and international television and print journalists, so many that the panels on each side of the room had to be removed to expand the space. On Aug. 23, 1988, Barbara was interviewed in C-Span’s Washington studio on the October Surprise On Dec. 17, 1992, she held yet another press conference at the National Press Club sponsored by the Association of National Security Alumni rebutting, with full distributed documentation, the then just released Senate October Surprise Report (released before the House October Surprise Task Force Report) immediately following which gave requested under oath testimony to the House October Surprise Task Force. The timing of the event and Barbara’s testimony was coordinated with the former President of Iran Abolhassan Bani Sadr whose documentation was delivered to the Task Force the same day. In addition to Barbara’s book October Surprise and Gary Sick’s by the same title published 2-1/2 years later and Robert Parry’s Trick or Treason: The October Surprise Mystery published after Sick’s– other important books on the topic are Ari ben Menasche’s Profits of War from inside the Israeli IDF; Bani Sadr’s My Turn to Speak; and, most recently, Chapter 24 in Pulitzer Prize winning historian Kai Bird’s recent biography of President Carter The Outlier.”

What Was Operation Paperclip?

America’s Untold Stories — With Eric Hunley and Mark Groubert

“Operation Paperclip was a secret program conducted by the United States of America during the Cold War. It was a mission to bring German scientists, engineers and technicians from Nazi Germany to the United States. The aim was to keep these scientists from falling into the hands of the Soviet Union and to gain access to their research and technological secrets.

“The operation was highly controversial in its secrecy and the failure to properly investigate the backgrounds of the scientists and the potential use of the technology they brought with them. There were also concerns that some of the scientists may have been involved in war crimes. The United States government was quick to deny these allegations.”

Debunk The Funk

I debated titling this “Debunking The Logical Fallacy Funk” and consider it an excellent Mental Inoculation Tool.

Mike Stone from powerfully arms his readers on the manipulation tricks used to perpetrate the fraudulent COVID-19 narrative.

And…I would add…these tricks are still constantly being used on the unaware public to BE AFRAID BE AFRAID!!!

This simple, brief and CLEAR article is a terrific read and an excellent resource tool to help educate those who don’t even know they’re being manipulated in the first place.

It’s vital we learn how to see what’s coming at us! Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Negotiation Theory:

A tactic perceived is a tactic disarmed.

Become better armed and mentally inoculated today. Highly Recommended.

The Praetorian Guard Mainstream Media Establishment

Tucker Carlson did an interview on the Full Send Podcast a couple weeks back.  If you haven’t seen it and you are interested in who Tucker is personally and professionally, you don’t want to miss it.  There are real gems here. The NSA tapped his Signal account for “national security purposes.”  He has some fascinating insights on Jeffrey Epstein and absolutely astounding information on UFOs.

“They [the mainstream media] are working for the small group of people who actually run the world. They’re their servants. They’re their praetorian guard. And we should treat them with maximum contempt because they have earned it.”

Never forget there is habitual lying, dis/misinformation and propaganda at all times.

Probably no one reading this blog will be surprised by any of this, but it’s a reminder that we currently live in a Orwellian novel.  Your cell phone is tracked, your “secure” chats are monitored, and you’re being hoodwinked and swindled perpetually by the state and its agents. The “establishment” has been bought and paid for all for the sake of keeping you in line for the Klaus Schwabs and George Soros of the world.

I Am Refuted by Chatgpt! Woe Is Me!

From: Walter Block <[email protected]>

To: Don

Subject: RE: Consensus of relevant data

Dear FA:

Wow. Fascinating. One error is that this has nothing whatsoever to do with “libertarian logic.” Rather, it is an aspect of economics. Libertarianism is a theory of the proper use of violence, and has nothing at all to do with this question. The chatgpt takes a mainstream view that there is indeed such a thing as “market failure.” Austrian economics has a long bibliography refuting this claim, which chatgpt seems unaware of.

Would You Steal A Penny To Save The World?

From: Brandon

To: Walter Block <[email protected]>

Dear Walter,

I’ve been hearing from a lot of libertarians online that if they were given the option of stealing a penny to save the world, they would not steal the penny. Although I absolutely understand the ethics behind it, the scenario seems extremely discomforting. Although I understand stealing a penny to save the world is unjust, it seems like one of those things you’d do either way out of fear. But some of the people I’ve spoken to not only regard stealing a penny to save the world unjust, but they’ve even said they would refuse to steal the penny if the scenario was real. Could you imagine any line of reasoning that could possibly justify stealing a penny to save the world or is it the case of it being unjust clear cut? Also, would you steal a penny to save the world?

Thank you.

Yours truly,


Dear Brandon:

Of course I’d steal a penny to save the world. I’d steal a lot more than that to save the world.

Fractional Reserve Banking Is Legalized Counterfeit

With bank failures occurring once again, the topic of “fractional reserve banking” is getting some much needed attention. How do banks work in the current “system”? Is it how banks should work? Banking is a legitimate and valuable service. However, when banks work in collusion with government, it produces nothing but trouble. Business and government must be kept separate. Banking is certainly not an exception.

Fictional Reserve Banking – Part 1

Your money in the bank that you think is 100% available to you on demand is in fact NOT payable on demand.

Here’s the Reality: “It’s like leasing your car to two people simultaneously, banking on the notion one will not show up.”

In this two-part series Mish Shedlock gets to the heart of why our Banking and entire Financial System is systemically flawed and fragile.

I encourage you to immediately read this: Fed Policy: It’s Not Fractional Reserve Banking, It’s ZERO Reserve Banking

Amazingly, very few people have any idea their money in the bank is at risk – that they don’t own it EXCLUSIVELY.

This should be taught to all kids in High School. The good news is that this Mystery of Banking can be easily understood.

Armed with Knowledge you can take the appropriate steps to navigate the reality of the world.

Without this Knowledge you, and those you care about, are unnecessarily blind and vulnerable.
