Second Wave of Bank Runs Start – Demise of the U.S. Dollar as the World’s Reserve Currency Accelerates

It's been over a week now since a bank has failed, but according to multiple sources, that does not mean that the banking crisis is over. In fact, many sources are reporting that bank runs are continuing, with a "second wave" of bank runs now going on. As we have previously reported, these modern-day bank runs are not always as noticeable today in the digital era, as you don't typically see people lining up at the banks to physically withdraw their money, as it all happens on the Internet. And while today depositors are rushing into Money Market accounts, once the smaller banks start failing again, expect to see more money exit bank accounts, such as into the FedNow CBDC accounts scheduled to come online this summer, as well as into commodities such as Gold and Silver. The rest of the world is, of course, noticing this, and some are beginning to trade with currencies other than the U.S. Dollar.

NATIONAL CATASTROPHE! California Farmers Suffering Record Losses from Flooding as “Worst is Yet to Come”

With the threat of a World War 3 escalation into a nuclear conflict, while the world's financial system is on the brink of collapse, it is easy to see why a local, regional news story about the weather will not make national headlines. But there is a local, regional story developing in California that I guarantee will eventually make national headline news, as the flooding continues with more heavy rain and snow this week, and with local officials declaring that in terms of the flooding and damage, "the worst is yet to come." With California producing over half of America's agriculture, this is indeed HUGE news, as this is also going to affect food prices around the world, since many of California's agricultural products, a $51 BILLION economy, are exported outside the U.S. The main reason this is not a major worldwide headline, yet, is because there are still very few estimates as to how high the losses are going to be, since the farming community in California is just trying to survive right now, bracing for new storms that entered the State yesterday and are continuing today. Total financial losses for the State of California due to flooding that began in January, right now range from $5 BILLION to $30 BILLION.

Is the Collapse of NATO Imminent? A Non-Western Dire Warning

It is difficult for those of us currently residing in the United States to get an accurate account about how the war in Ukraine is actually going, as it depends on which sources you read and trust. I don't think it can be disputed, however, that the economy of NATO nations is in serious trouble with massive bank runs and failures, and massive demonstrations in many countries with the country of France literally burning and basically shut down, while non-NATO countries such as Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, and Iran, are already on the road to economic recovery as they band together to oppose the ongoing wars and economic sanctions funded by the Davos Crowd. For a non-Western perspective on what is basically the beginning stages of World War 3 as it unfolds before us in real time today, I am publishing a commentary by Sam Parker of Behind the News Network entitled "The Demise of Nato." Consider this commentary as a "worse case scenario," as Parker believes that Russia absolutely has the power to destroy the United States, even without launching nuclear weapons, by bombing key infrastructures, like they are currently doing in Ukraine. He writes: "Few people – including CIA operatives – may know that New York City, for instance, may be destroyed with a single move by blowing up the George Washington Bridge. The city can’t be supplied with food and most of its requirements without the bridge. The New York City electrical grid can be destroyed by knocking out the central controls; putting it back together could take a year. America is fragile. We don’t notice because it works smoothly and because when a local catastrophe occurs—earthquake, hurricane, and tornado—the rest of the country steps in to remedy things. The country can handle normal and regional catastrophes. But nuclear war is neither normal nor regional. Very few warheads would serve to wreck the United States beyond recovery for decades. This should be clear to anyone who actually thinks about it. Defense is impossible. Coastal cities are particularly easy targets, being vulnerable to submarine-launched sea-skimming missiles – Washington, New York, Boston, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle for starters – all gone. A modern country is a system of systems of systems, interdependent and interconnected—water, electricity, manufacturing, energy, telecommunications, transportation, pipelines, and complex supply chains. These are interconnected, interdependent, and rely on large numbers of trained people showing up for work. Talking of repair any time soon after the nuclear bombing of a city is foolish because the city would have many hundreds of thousands of dead, housing destroyed, massive fires, horrendously burned people with no hope of medical care, and in general populations too focused on staying alive to worry about abstractions like supply chains."

Netanyahu Backs Down, for now, to Avoid Civil War in Israel

A day after the largest protests in the history of modern-day Israel, most Israeli embassies were closed today, including their embassy in Washington D.C., to show support for the protesters in Israel. In a much anticipated announcement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a speech at around 8 p.m. local time Monday night stating that the government would pause their judicial overhaul plans, in order to avoid a civil war. There are questions as to how much support he has in the military. It remains to be seen if Netanyahu's remarks will be enough to end the protests and strikes. Opposition organizers have reportedly stated that a "temporary" pause in the government's plans to overhaul the judiciary are not enough.

Largest Protest in the History of Israel as Hundreds of Thousands Take to the Streets

Massive protests have erupted across Israel tonight after PM Netanyhau fired his Defense Minister, a day after he called on the Israeli leader to halt a planned judicial overhaul that has fiercely divided the country. As a reminder, Netanyahu and his allies say the plan will restore a balance between the judicial and executive branches and rein in what they see as an interventionist court with liberal sympathies. But critics say the constellation of laws will remove the checks and balances in Israel’s democratic system and concentrate power in the hands of the governing coalition. Gallant's dismissal signaled that Netanyahu will move ahead this week with the overhaul plan, which has sparked mass protests, angered military and business leaders and raised concerns among Israel’s allies. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis took to the streets in Tel Aviv and Haifa. Saturday night's crowds were reportedly the largest ever. Will there be a military coup in Israel?

Americans Now Dying in Syria to Protect Syrian Oil Fields the U.S. Military Seized

Americans in the U.S. military and with military contractors came under fire in Syria this past week, suffering casualties from alleged Iranian drone strikes. Why is the U.S. military still in Syria?  It's hard to say.  No U.S. president since Barack Obama has offered a rational explanation.  Syria continues to act as a remnant of establishment war-hawk policies from the Bush era, with Obama, Biden and Hillary Clinton using the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan as a jumping-off point for their covert Arab Spring operations. In infamous comments made in 2019, former U.S. President Donald Trump said: "We’re keeping [Syria’s] oil. We have the oil. The oil is secure. We left troops behind only for the oil." Was President Trump's seizure of Syrian oil fields in 2019 legal? The attacks on the U.S. military bases in Syria followed the recent announcement that Saudi Arabia was normalizing relations with Iran, a peace initiative brokered by China. Saudi Arabia announced last week that they would reopen their embassy in Syria.

1 in 36 Children in the U.S. Now Diagnosed with Autism but CDC Refuses to Look at Vaccines as Cause

A brand new study was released today by Centers for Disease Control pegging the autism rate in the United States at 1 in 44 children, up from 1 in 150 children in 2000 when their complex surveillance system—The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network—was first instituted. Looked at another way, that means 2.7% of children today have autism, and the rate has grown by 243% since 2000. In the old days, people panicked when they saw a devastating disability amongst our children increase by 243%. But, the CDC isn’t worried, their “Public Health Action” from the study is unfortunately par for the course: The continued increase among children identified with ASD, particularly among non-White children and girls, highlights the need for enhanced infrastructure to provide equitable diagnostic, treatment, and support services for all children with ASD. Any question in the report about WHY the rate has increased so much? Of course not. But, it actually gets worse.

Russian Soldiers Discover “Baby Factories” in Ukraine where Young Children are Grown for Child Sex Brothels and for Organ Harvesting

A video has surfaced of Russian soldiers describing how they found a "baby factory" in Ukraine where young children are raised for the pedophile child brothels, or murdered to harvest their organs and sell on the Black Market. The video was published by The People's Voice, and they mention how other sources in Russia have covered this issue, and that Western Media just excuses it as disinformation or propaganda. But Russians are not the only ones who have documented this horrible practice of trafficking babies and young children for sex and then murdering them for their body parts. Two years ago we published the documentary published by Polish film producer Patryk Vega, called “Eyes of the Devil.” In this documentary, Vega is able to actually interview one of the child traffickers who trafficks babies from Poland and Ukraine to child brothels in Germany, where the children, usually around 5 to 7-years-old, work for a few years in the brothels until their tiny bodies start to break down, and then they are murdered to harvest their organs which are trafficked to the rich and powerful.

Central Bank Digital Currency Fail? Worldwide Resistance Against Central Banks Gains Momentum

Is the fear over the adoption of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) being over-hyped? Nigeria has been used by some as an example of what may be coming to the U.S. in terms of rolling out a CBDC, as Nigeria is the first major country to do a mass rollout of CBDCs and attempt to replace cash. But now one year later, it appears that the rollout of the Nigerian CBDC, the eNaira, has been a total failure, as their Supreme Court has ruled it is "unconstitutional," and there are calls for arresting the head of the Central Bank in Nigeria. And in an article published today, March 23, 2023, it is being reported that the Nigeria Labour Congress is calling for public sector workers to start a nationwide strike next week, protesting at Central Bank branches, which could cripple the entire country. Within the past 30 days or so, several U.S. politicians have also come out publicly against Central Bank Digital Currencies. They include: U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. What do these four politicians all have in common? They are all Republicans. You know, the party that used to hold the position that "all vaccines are safe and effective and the science has been settled," which was the position of ALL politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, until it was decided by the GOP in 2022 that it was OK to oppose one kind of "vaccine," the COVID shots, and therefore made it a political issue. And of course they only adopted this position AFTER hundreds of millions of Americans had already received their shots. This GOP position on the COVID shots, however, did not result in any action to either STOP injecting Americans with COVID-19 bioweapons, nor hold accountable those who approved them. So do we now trust them on their opposition to Central Bank CBDCs?

America’s Faith In Technology is Leading the Financial Collapse of a Once Great Country

Today's meeting of the Federal Reserve and their announcement regarding interest rates was, by far, the most anticipated financial announcement so far in 2023. Since the start of the banking collapse of the past couple of weeks, there has been widespread speculation about what the Fed was going to do today. Would they announce rate cuts and the return of easy money, which would throw a life preserver out to America's smaller banks, or would they continue with rate hikes in an attempt to lower inflation, but potentially doom hundreds of America's smaller and mid-sized banks to collapse? It was a no-win situation for the Fed, and most were anticipating at least a halt in rising interest rates, if not the announcement of rate cuts. In the end, the Fed announced another rate increase, stating that rate cuts were not on the table for the rest of 2023. Trying to calm the nerves of investors on Wall Street, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell announced that "all depositor savings" were "safe," and that they were prepared to "use all tools" to keep the U.S. banking system "safe and sound." However, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who was testifying before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee at the same time Powell was making his remarks, was asked if the FDIC was going to raise the limit on bank deposits that are insured above the current $250,000 limit, and she replied: “This is not something we have looked at, it’s not something that we’re considering.” Whoops! The stock markets then began a steep decline in the final hour of trading, as soon as she said that. Bank stocks tumbled once again, but they are not the only ones looking at disaster. The automobile industry and the housing market is also in big trouble now, as U.S. consumers' ability to borrow money and make major purchases will now get even worse. And just as a reminder, this current crisis of liquidity and downward spiral all began last year when FTX blew up, and the Big Tech sector began massive layoffs. Big Tech's main bank, Silicon Valley Bank, the 15th largest bank in the U.S., was the first to crash. And now, America's reliance on technology is crippling this nation, and it can only get worse, as all of this technology, such as AI which is eating up $billions of cash in Chat bot and other software right now, is all dependent upon hardware, and most of that is produced in China and Taiwan. China can now easily cripple the United States and bring us to brink of collapse, without firing a single shot or launching a single missile, by simply cutting off their exports to the U.S., and blocking exports from Taiwan.
