Petrodollar on Shaky Ground; Saudi Arabia Willing to Discuss Selling Oil in Other Currencies

by Michael Maharrey, Schiff Gold:

In a recent interview, Saudi Arabia Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan said the country is open to discussing trade in currencies other than the US dollar. This could mark the beginning of the end of petrodollar exclusivity. That would be a huge blow to dollar dominance.

“There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it is in the US dollar, whether it is the euro, whether it is the Saudi riyal,” Al-Jadaan said in an interview with Bloomberg TV.

The Rulers Greatest Fear

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The climate change agenda has been thrown to unbelievable levels.  You can hardly read a new article or watch TV for more than a few minutes without knowing all about and where the elites are in their quest to control humanity through saving the planet. But those elites do have one great fear.

Nuclear energy is a big fear of those in power. It threatens their green agenda when in reality, can be cleaner than wind or solar power.  According to YouTube creator, The Economic Ninja, “the world is turning nuclear at the same time that it’s turning green.” That’s because companies around the world are starting to figure out just how green nuclear energy is by comparison.

Here’s What Happens to Society When the System Fails


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When the system begins to fail, society can quickly crumble. Two such events have occurred recently.

Let’s reflect on the Brumadinho mining dam disaster and see about the recent cartel attack in Culiacán, Mexico, in order to discuss how these kinds of events can affect our daily lives, particularly during times of crisis.

In his work, Selco explains what occurs to individuals and society as a whole when the system completely fails. He’s unmatched and possibly one of the greatest sources to look at because of how effectively his blunt and honest style is to convey the drama and urgency of the unthinkable.

Hypocrite Gavin Newsom Calls 2nd Amendment a ‘Suicide Pact’ While Entirely Surrounded by Guns


by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Not letting a tragedy go to waste, the anti-gun crowd is exploiting the recent shooting in Monterey Park, California to push for strict gun control measures. Since the psychotic shooter took the lives of 11 people and injured 10 others, gun-hating politicians have gone into overdrive.

We are now being reminded how bad “assault rifles” and semi-automatic pistols are and why law-abiding citizens need to be disarmed.

Russia Readies Its “Poseidon” Doomsday Weapon As The World Stumbles To The Brink Of Nuclear Conflict

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

In a game of “nuclear chicken”, one of the potential outcomes is that everybody loses.  We have reached a point where nuclear annihilation is just one mistake away, and that should deeply alarm all of us.  But as I discussed in a previous article, most people don’t seem to care.  Instead, most people just seem to assume that our leaders have everything under control and that they know exactly what they are doing.  Unfortunately, the truth is that they are completely nuts.  They just decided to escalate the war in Ukraine again, and they are dragging us to the brink of nuclear conflict.  Of course once a nuclear war starts, the option of choosing new leaders will be gone.

Evil Walks Among Us: Child Trafficking Has Become Big Business in America


by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

It takes a special kind of evil to prostitute and traffick a child for sex, and yet this evil walks among us every minute of every day.

Consider this: every two minutes, a child is bought and sold for sex.

Hundreds of young girls and boys—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex, as many as 20 times per day.

A Dollar Collapse Is Now In Motion – Saudi Arabia Signals The End Of Petro Status

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

The decline of a currency’s world reserve status is often a long process rife with denials. There are numerous economic “experts” out there that have been dismissing any and all warnings of dollar collapse for years. They just don’t get it, or they don’t want to get it. The idea that the US currency could ever be dethroned as the defacto global trade mechanism is impossible in their minds.

One of the key pillars keeping the dollar in place as the world reserve is its petro-status, and this factor is often held up as the reason why the Greenback cannot fail. The other argument is that the dollar is backed by the full force of the US military, and the US military is backed by the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve – In other words, the dollar is backed by…the dollar; it’s a very circular and naive position.

Decline of Empire: Parallels Between the U.S. and Rome, Part IV

by Doug Casey, International Man:

Now to gratify the Druids among you.

Soil exhaustion, deforestation, and pollution—which abetted plagues—were problems for Rome. As was lead poisoning, in that the metal was widely used for eating and drinking utensils and for cookware. None of these things could bring down the house, but neither did they improve the situation. They might be equated today with fast food, antibiotics in the food chain, and industrial pollutants. Is the U.S. agricultural base unstable because it relies on gigantic monocultures of bioengineered grains that in turn rely on heavy inputs of chemicals, pesticides, and mined fertilizers? It’s true that production per acre has gone up steeply because of these things, but that’s despite the general decrease in depth of topsoil, destruction of native worms and bacteria, and growing pesticide resistance of weeds.
