from 21st Century Wire:
Ever since the air of insanity of the global pseudo-pandemic began to subside in the autumn of 2021, western politicians – especially the authoritarian fanatics holding court in places like the US, UK, Canada, EU, Australia and New Zealand – have been busy gaslighting their citizens 24/7, in their desperate attempt to distract everyone from the impending economic disaster that was already building.
The initial signs were unmistakable to any honest pundit: a rapid uptick in inflation last fall, propelled by two consecutive years of out-of-control quantitative easing (aka printing money like there was no tomorrow) supposedly to save us all from a seasonal flu virus, but also driven by hyperinflationary trends in the natural gas and energy markets, as EU governments (egged on by Washington) began putting the squeeze on Russian gas and oil supplies to Europe, and combined with postmodernist green energy diktats being enforced on both sides of the Atlantic, all of which gave Enronist energy speculators plenty of ammunition to drive-up energy prices on market exchanges. Remember, this all began popping way before Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine. That said, after the Russian invasion began in late February 2022, and the collective West imposed a global financial embargo on Russia, the global economy went into terminal decline, including serious disruptions to essential agriculture and food supplies worldwide.
