    So what’s your reason for calling Lwów – “Lemberg” dr Farrell? Just to anger some people for fun? Because you did not explain why you use that particular, german name for this city. What is justification for that. Give you idea: next time call Warsaw – Warschau. Why not? That was the name of the city in some historical period with Adolf Hitler Strasse in the center of the city. With all your knowledge you don’t know much about Eastern Europe: people, history and culture. Looks like all you learn is from german, imperial and nazi books.

    The “Prussiagate” series on substack, quite interesting.

      Long story…
      1776 to 1913.

    Democracy and freedom of the press / broadcasting has taken a bad turn for the worse here in the UK. The Broadcasting Regulator – OFCOM (The UK Enforcement arm of the Ministry of Truth, that ensures only the Establishment agenda and views can be reported and consumed by the population), has banned RT News.
    Likewise, this week, the Ministry of Truth (the BBC News Disinformation Unit) determined there was / are no bio weapons research laboratories in the Ukraine.

        Whoops, where did the ‘edit’ button go????, as this,,, “Buy low, Sell High” … was meant as a Reply to the Comment on the post by — PHOENIXRISINGMARCH 17, 2022 AT 10:29 PM —- So, ” if the ruble is a front runner????? it could be said for gold or silver…. “Buy low, Sell High” ….

    Is the ruble a front runner?

    • Robert Barricklow on March 17, 2022 at 11:38 pm

      Last I heard, the ruble is heading up.
      Granted, it went a ways down, so up isn’t headlines…

      But, remember what this really is; in its essence: information warfare.
      One of my new favorite memes is:
      “Torture data, and it will confess to anything”

      – Ronald Coase, Nobel Laureate
      (Meaning, Nobel prize winners are globalists personified[IMO]
      Meaning, “they” can get the figures to do anything they want…
      Meaning, to act just like the presstitute globalized media.)

      Which begs the question, What do “they” really want?

        Sure wish I had access to safely by and hold rubles.

    So, the CSA will be singing Dixi again as it is stabbed in back by its masters in London and its usefulness has expired. When will the conniving fools in Foggy Bottom grow up and stop serving their old masters?

    If being a/the reserve currency would raise the exchange rate of the RMB, making their exports more expensive to other countries, I doubt the PRC would want it, unless they want to shift from production to consumption.
    The USD has a lot of downside, mainly due to its lothesome govt. and central bank, but it may take some years for it to fall all the way out of position – what country can, or would want, to assume the role?
    Maybe SDRs or some managed basket currency. I’ve wondered for a long time what percentage of the US money supply is tied up in foreign trade and reserves, and would come back the domestic economy if the situation changed, creating a large increase in domestic M.

    • Robert Barricklow on March 17, 2022 at 11:24 pm

      SDR’s is an IMF wet dream.
      Predicted long ago; promoted and floated, primarily by the IMF itself?

    • FiatLux on March 18, 2022 at 9:33 pm

      On the renminbi: I’ve heard more than one commentator say China wants to focus more on developing a domestic consumer market. On the other hand, China wouldn’t be building out the Belt and Road project if it weren’t planning on being an exporter. So you’ve posed a good question…

      I doubt the U.S. dollar will lose its place overnight, but I can’t see how it’s not going to lose its place over the next decade or so. I’m guessing it will go they way of the British pound sterling. There’s still a lot of dollar reserves overseas. I don’t know what happens if that comes back to the U.S. Can the money men engineer enough deflation to offset potential money-supply-based inflation? They engineered a bunch of deflation in the real-world economy (as opposed to the stock market) with the CV1984 op. Or would the dollars coming back to the U.S. drive up price inflation? Or both (which is what we’re seeing right now)? Will it not matter because the dollar has been replaced with a central bank digital currency and prices/spending are essentially administered by a social-credit and carbon-credit system that limits the amount of money in circulation and sets the price of goods? More questions…

    It’s back to those who want The United States[USA],
    and those who want a new World Order Great Re-Set USSA, w/no sovereignty; i.e., national currency[even international exorbitant privilege].

    The current Commie-crat leadership is doing everything possible to bring the USA down; by destroying the USA economy, culture and moral capital.
    [what’s left of it].

    Bring in a leadership that wants a strong Nation State[USA] in its
    economy, culture and moral character.

    Better late, than never?

    Or, have the neo-cons burned the house down?

    The relationship of Moscow & Beijing may be red tinged on front pages and streaming banners, but far from rosy. That the Party of the east by going west is NOT trusted makes all the difference despite all those shiny objects in currencies and fancy papers. Agreements are everything as are those things in support of them. As much as that Party is relying on their form of spiritual regeneration in pursuit of hegemony (iffy on that spirit part), much seems lacking from their Eight-point Regulation of the Centre from the General Secretary himself, despite sounding simple enough as it is expandable. Seems all those folks who consider themselves of importance are opting for some eight-point something. Not everyone discovers that their new years resolutions go as they intended.

    The fossil fuel industry may be the limelight of the larger energy industry and in the way but is not the only energy source toward a viable civilization. The others that have been hinted at over the decades continue to lurk in the background. It’s just a matter of admitting that they are.

    Hammers still fall to the ground and still may be buried becoming part of the surrounding fossilizing material.

    Tyler Durden in ZeroHedge arrives at a similar conclusion about the US dollar and economic collapse. It wont be confined to the US mind but the US is definitely the primary target of a cordinated take-down to which the Stepford Biden circus is a major contributor by conveniently refusing to allow oil production. Remember Klaus Barbie-Schwab’s 8 point plan, point 2 of which is ‘the US will no longer be a global superpower’?
    Durden spells it out. It’ll make your hair stand on end.
    Oh and it would be a good idea to prepare for a cyber attack seeing as how KB-S has also announced that it will be the next thing that we are “not prepared for” and which will usher in your global ID QR code. Hidden in plain sight again.

      Cyber warfare has actually been going on for years but there are hints of new zero-day exploits. They almost always come with major digital and electronic shifts.

    Currency is backed by gold, whereas farming is backed by sundial.

    Kolovrat, the spinning wheel of Russia, depicts the seven seals of sundial, in John’s Revelation.

    Delia Murphy – The Spinning Wheel:

    • Richard on March 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

      . . . . That sundial is packed with obliquity, ellipsoidal revolutions of orbits, Sol system Barycentre fluctuations, as well as inbound surface changing objects, to name a few items not on either side of the ledgers.
