As inflation increases in the US and sanctions against Russia were supposed to collapse the ruble, economists are looking at how Putinundefineds country seems to be doing well even in the face of the weaponized banks. Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum is preparing us for a digital currency, whereby the populace will have less control over their spending power. What exactly is the real aim of these sanctions and how come they align so perfectly with the Great Reset? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with financial analyst, Alan Johnson about U.S.URY IN A DIGITAL CENTS.






In my video queue on my cable streaming system, I noticed that Hulu has the new film undefinedFreshundefined available. My curiosity is peaked but my conscience says undefinednoundefined about the film.

It is about cannibalism and stirred a bot of controversy when it was first shown at the Sundance film festival because the killer in the film seduces women and then cuts them up and sells their body parts to elitist cannibals.

Yes undefined art imitates life so to speak and the rich continue to get richer off the deaths of innocent people who were unfortunate enough to be victims of their cull.

Whether it be Covid-19, depression or even starvation the metaphor of America eating itself is ubiquitous and maybe the controversy lies in how we see ourselves deep down undefined we are simply meat to the elite that can be eaten or thrown away.

Most of us are seen as the bottom feeders and it doesnundefinedt matter if you are a faithful follower or not undefined loyalty to the technocracy means that you will have to surrender everything for the cause of the great reset.

It is estimated that approximately 7.9 billion people currently live on the planet, and feeding everyone is a real challenge even if everything goes perfectly. Unfortunately, global conditions have been much less than perfect for the past couple of years- many people have floated the memes of Soylent Green all over the internet as it was set in the year 2022 and here we are being reminded that cannibalism may be an option.

We are far closer to a potential global cataclysm than most people would dare to imagine.  Right now, leaders from all across the political spectrum are openly warning us that a worldwide food crisis is coming.

But when people in the western world hear of such warnings, most of them assume that it will just be something that affects poor people in Africa or Asia.  Unfortunately, that will not be the case this time around.  We truly are in unprecedented territory, and we are going to see things happen in the months ahead that once would have been absolutely unthinkable.

At this moment, we are still eating food that was previously grown, but it is the food that will not be grown in the months ahead that will be the real problem. Because the truth is that we do not have much of a buffer to work with at all.

This is by design undefined again in order to build back better you have to destroy something and then redesign it in the image of the fourth industrial revolution.

They have told us that we will own nothing and be happy undefined and with this they will have control of all of our wealth and progress.

They will be able to eliminate the worth of your money and convert it to a digital currency that they can control and cut off undefined if you do not play by theory rules.

Wall Street is warming up to the idea that the next big disruptive force on the horizon is central bank digital currencies, even though the Federal Reserve likely remains a few years away from developing its own.

Led by countries as large as China and as small as the Bahamas, digital money is drawing stronger interest as the future of an increasingly cashless society.

A digital dollar would resemble cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or Ethereum in some limited respects but differ in important ways.

Rather than be a tradable asset with wildly fluctuating prices and limited use, the central bank digital currency would function more like dollars and have widespread acceptance. It also would be fully regulated and under a central authority.

Indeed, a 2020 survey from the Bank for International Settlements indicated that nearly every central bank in the world at least did some work on these digital currencies. Some 60% are working on “proof of concept” testing, though just 14% have actually launched a pilot program or are in development.

There also are privacy concerns and worries over integration.

But no problem, their conspiracy to tank the system and devalue our cash is well underway -and it has myriad of excuses- Covid-19. Climate change and the War in Ukraine.

If you’re beginning to get the nagging sense that the mainstream consensus worldview is a construct manufactured by the powerful, for the powerful and everything you were taught about your nation, your government and your world is a lie, then join  the club undefined you are a discerning individual that know that you are being had.

If it’s starting to seem like we’re all being manipulated at mass scale to think, act and vote in a way which benefits a vast power structure that rules over us while hiding its true nature, then you are most certainly paying attention.

Caitlin Johnstone wrote in a thoughtful column  published by blacklisted news:

undefinedIf you’ve got a gut feeling that your rulers are working to control your perception of the war in Ukraine, it is safe to trust that feeling. If you feel like there’s been a concerted effort from the most powerful government and media institutions in the western world to manipulate your understanding of what’s going on with this war, it’s because that’s exactly what has been happening.”

“If you can’t recall ever seeing such intense mass media spin about a war before, it’s because you haven’t.”

I have to agree – and I wonder if anyone else feels the manipulation.

When was the last time we have warmed up to foreign leader and have allowed him to present mini documentaries to congress and to the limousine elite on a big screen like some rally reminiscent of 1984?

It is lights, camera action-and we have a superstar hero that speaks with a gruff voice telling us to continue the spirit of giving and support undefined until we collapse under the weight of our newly created altruism

A month or so ago if you asked who Volodymyr Zelensky was, you would probably think it was a villain who shows up at Hogwarts.

The war in the Ukraine continues but the propaganda hysteria around it seems to have calmed down a bit as reality is setting in. The reality that whatever our leaders are doing -we are seeing how it has become counterproductive.

When we think about how much we are seeing scarcity at the supermarket and how it appears that our own government has weaponized gas and food undefined we are now learning that the sanctions are now weaponizing the banks -and when we are told the the targets are Russia undefined we fail to see through the propaganda. If we were to stop and think we would realize that the targets of these sanctions are not just Russia but us.

The sweeping sanctions imposed against Russia by the West, allegedly in response to the invasion of Ukraine, are not having their stated aim – tanking the Russian economy – but they are driving up the price of oil, creating potential energy and food shortages in the West and exacerbating the “cost of living” crisis created by the “pandemic”,

The media and President Biden tells us that it is our patriotic duty to suffer because of what has transpired between Russian and Ukraine.

After the U.S. and the G7 countries weaponized the global financial system to impose their harshest-ever sanctions on Russia, the fissures are becoming apparent. The ruble strengthened to its prewar value against the dollar.

A sign that the capital controls set by the Russiaundefineds central bank were working.

As The Ruble continued its rise on Friday, the Central Bank of Russia surprised the world by cutting its interest rates 3 percentage points to 17 percent — still high, but It is a sign that the country’s defensive stance was too aggressive.

European countries are still buying energy flooding Russia with euros and dollars that can then be used by any of the more than 200 banks that aren’t under sanction.

Russians are paying 53.59 rubles a liter, for gasoline or roughly equivalent to $2.70 a gallon — cheaper than just about everywhere in the U.S.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called sanctions a “declaration of war” — and perhaps it is, but it has also been a propaganda boon for the Kremlin as it escalates its war in Ukraine.

How about that?

How was it done? Economists are looking at how Russia seems to be doing well even in the face of the weaponized banks.

Ever since 2014, when Putin faced Western sanctions for the annexation of Crimea, more of Russia’s goods have been produced domestically and debts were restructured to be paid in the local currency. In its run-up to war, Russia effectively removed itself from the global system where it was spending while further entangling its neighbors that were giving it money, and given the country’s size and power, made it difficult for the world to reverse course.

As Russia has adjusted to sanctions, the U.S. has escalated its financial punishments, further isolating the country’s largest banks and targeting Putin’s daughters. Still, these have not had the broad economic effect on how the country operates.

Sanctions were designed to collapse the value of the Ruble.

They failed.

Again, we are living in clown world undefined and the media will not even call out the inconsistencies of these hopeless strategies.

But we decide to play along and are cajoled into doing so because it shows our patriotism, according to President Biden.

They are important but counterintuitive. They are good for making our leaders sound like critical parents but they are simply impotent.

It’s not like the US, NATO, and the EU don’t know how to cripple economies. They have had years of practice starving the people of Cuba, Iraq, Venezuela and too many others to list.

It can be argued that they are doing a good job on leveling our economy and as I have warned for over a year they are pushing us into a scarcity economy undefined and this has been a plan first discussed by Karl Marx and embraced by strategists like Henry Kissinger.

Since the Second World War, America has been the undisputed leader of the world economy. The international trading and financial system reflected this fact. The dollar served as international currency and the economic policy of the United States set the course for the world economy.

The value of the Dollar is diminishing again, buying power has stalled, and we are seeing many shortages of proteins and grains undefined gasoline prices are skyrocketing and the plan to engage a hunger pandemic is well underway.

In the past oil problems would be diminished when places like Saudi Arabia would flood the system with cheap oil undefined But has the US increased its oil production this time round? Have they leant on their Gulf allies to do the same?

Not at all.

In fact, in a point of beautiful synchronicity, (meaning timing is everything) the US claims it’s “unable” to increase its oil production due to “staff shortages” caused by that gift that keeps on giving – Covid 19.

Similarly, Saudi Arabia is not tanking the oil market, but deliberately increasing prices.

They have had two years to figure out how to manage this plague -and the best they can do is tell people to mask up and shut up undefined eat your peasant food like a good patriot.

Right now, with the Western allies locked in an alleged economic war with Russia the price of oil is soaring and may continue to do so.

This is good news for the Russian economy, to the point it may even make up for the damage done by the brutal sanctions.

The high price of oil and need “not to rely on Putin’s gas” or “de-Russify” our energy supply will doubtless result in millions being poured into “green” technology.

This is the conspiracy undefined and it is not theory undefined it is just a lie of omission as we see the carnage on TV to provoke and emotional response.

Russia is a net exporter of food, meaning they export more food than they import. Conversely, many countries in Western Europe rely on imported food, including the UK which imports over 48% of its food supply.

If Europe refuses to buy Russian food, the net effect is that Russia has food…and the West doesn’t.

And, just as with oil, increasing food prices will help rather than hinder the Russian economy.

Take wheat for example, of which Russia is the biggest exporter in the world. The vast majority of this wheat is not even sold to Western countries – but instead to China, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Nigeria and Pakistan – and so is not even subject to sanctions.

Nevertheless, the sanctions, and the war, have actually driven the price of wheat up almost 30%.

This is good for the Russian economy.

The media are claiming that the strength of the ruble “may be illusory” or that Russia has exploited a “loophole” in the sanctions and used “financial alchemy” to “rescue the ruble”.

Meanwhile, according to CNN, the US is likely to enter a full-blown recession by 2023, France is considering food vouchers and countries all over the world are expected to begin rationing fuel.

At the same time, Europe and the US are expecting food and gas shortages, seeing record gas prices and talking about rationing.

Increased food prices, decreased use of fossil fuels, lowering standards of living, public money poured into “renewables”. This is all part of a very familiar agenda, isn’t it?

Regardless of what you feel about Putin, Zelensky, the war in general or Ukrainian Nazis, it’s time to confront the elephant in room.

We need to be asking: What exactly is the real aim of these sanctions? And how come they align so perfectly with the great reset?

You should always be wary of anybody – individual or institution – whose actions accidentally achieve the exact opposite of their stated aim. That’s a simple rule to live by.

This is financial tyranny.

Look beyond the drum-pounding distractions of war and the fear-inducing tactics of the Deep State, and consider the long-term ramifications of the so-called sanctions being levied against Russia right now: not just the governmental sanctions, but the corporate lockdowns.

This new world order—a global world order—made up of international government agencies and corporations owes its existence in large part to the U.S. government’s deep-seated and, in many cases, top-secret alliances with foreign nations and global corporations.

This powerful international cabal, let’s call it the Global Deep State, is just as real as the corporatized, militarized, industrialized American Deep State, and it poses just as great a threat to our rights as individuals under the U.S. Constitution, if not greater.

I hope that people have been paying attention to what is really happening in the world, because it is increasingly obvious that we’re already under a new world order, and it is being brought to you by the World Economic Davos crowd that efficiently recruited many world leaders into their fascist cult.

Given the trajectory and dramatic expansion, globalization and merger of governmental and corporate powers, we’re not going to recognize this country in a matter of months or even a year from now undefined let alone 5 years or 10 because we have been promised a new green age by 2030 and net zero by 2050.

Doing nothing isn’t an especially good option because, like it or not, the world is becoming something quite different than we expected just a few years ago—not just technologically, but geopolitically and socially.

The U.S. government—and that includes the current administration—is spending money it doesn’t have on programs it can’t afford, and “we the taxpayers” are the ones who must foot the bill for the government’s fiscal insanity.

We’ve been sold a bill of goods by politicians promising to pay down the national debt, jumpstart the economy, rebuild our infrastructure, secure our borders, ensure our security, and make us all healthy, wealthy and happy.

None of that has come to pass, and yet we’re still being loaded down with debt not of our own making.  If Americans managed their personal finances the way the government mismanages the nation’s finances, we’d all be in debtors’ prison by now.

Despite the government propaganda being peddled by the politicians and news media, however, the government isn’t spending our tax dollars to make our lives better.

So many people out there are fully convinced that they will always be able to rely on the system, and a lot of them will continue to believe that even as the system literally collapses all around them.

We’re being robbed blind so the governmental elite can get richer.

We’re not living the American dream. We’re living a financial nightmare.
