ARGENTINA WANTS IN… TO BRICS
This intriguing, but entirely predictable, article came to us courtesy of L.G.L.R., to whom a big thank you for sending it along.
The story is summed up in the headline: Argentina, South America's other major power along with Brazil, wants into the BRICS organization. Since it's been a while since I've talked about BRICS, a brief refresher might be required for those who might not know. "BRICS" is simply the anagram for the organization of nations trying to form an economic and geopolitical trading bloc in counterbalance to the hegemony of America, or as Russia now refers to the USSA, "the Empire of Lies." BRICS stands for the major nations comprising that bloc: Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa.
Well, now you can add Argentina to the list:
Argentina pushing to become member of BRICS
Argentina, lest one forget, would be a major coup for the BRICS organization, since along with Brazil it long ago closed the nuclear fuel cycle, and supplies electrical power not only to itself but to much of the rest of South America, up to and including Mexico. As the article notes, it has an advanced infrastructure, major manufacturing, major agriculture, and so on.
In a certain sense, this move was not only predictable but inevitable: the USSA's empire is in severe and sharp decline because - to put it frankly and bluntly - other nations are just sick and tired of being bossed about, and if they decline to be bossed about, then sanctioned and if that doesn't work, bombed. Just ask the Ukraine how well becoming a part of the West's "sphere of influence" is working out.
But there's something that caught my eye in this article, and I hope it caught yours, for it fulfills a prediction I've been making for a couple of years and which I've mentioned from time to time in discussions with Catherine Austin Fitts, and with others. Here it is:
He also took the opportunity to push for "an agenda for the future," as he called for a "debate" on "the guidelines that determine the general allocation of Special Drawing Rights (SDR) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)" and highlighted that "SDRs are also an essential tool for the necessary capitalization of regional development banks."
The Argentine leader also discussed the importance BRICS can play financially, arguing that "the institutional and economic weight of BRICS can become a factor of financial stability. The expansion of its New Development Bank (NDB) can be a useful instrument to strengthen national infrastructures."
Fernandez called on members to "agree on a common agenda" which would permit the bloc to express "concerns more effectively at the next G20 meeting," which is scheduled for November in Indonesia.
He also touched on the Ukraine-Russia war and called it "imperative that the hostilities in Ukraine cease." (Italicized emphasis added)
These three things, taken together, spell another massive blow against the US dollar and the USSA's waning influence, a process dramatically accelerated under the corrupt Bidenenko regime, a regime, you'll have noticed, that few other nations want to talk to. Phone calls are not being returned.
Argentina is really signaling the following three things: (1) the structure of the IMF's special drawing rights, and the influence of other nations - such as Argentina - will have to be renegotiated because (2) there will need to be a capitalization of regional development banks, which means regional reserve currencies, and this in turn is needed because the world needs financial stability, and this cannot be provided under the unipolar Anglo-American model, and the vast economic weight of the BRICS organization will not allow the status quo to continue. Finally, Argentina is saying that the war in the Ukraine must cease. Translation: the West has lost, and in order to transition to stability, it needs to acknowledge that fact.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the rest of the BRICS nations endorsed Argentina's message, and that they all probably deliberated long and hard on how to deliver this message. Rather than the tired old rehearsals of the obvious from the Kremlin or the Forbidden City, why not a "review of the situation" and memo of understanding from the Casa Rosada? That message is unmistakably sharp and clear.
See you on the flip side...

From the R in BRICS comes another blow-
Russia now demanding payment in rubles for grain. First, earlier this year demanding payment for LNG in rubles, and Russia linked the rubles to gold. If I remember correctly, it was announced as a thirty or sixty day initial trial or standard – but hit a goal in days. The ruble remains the strong. And this latest announcement that the BRICS can connect to the SPFS (as apposed to weaponized SWIFT) pretty much implies that SPFS up and running. China’s version is CHIPS.
The Special Drawing Rights have been forecast as replacement for the FRN Dollar for a while. Robert noted Hudson below. Rickards makes that case too. I never considered a basket of fiat currencies viable, wouldn’t be able to replace the falling fiat reserve currency. But if a basket of currencies were commodity backed, linked, or priced? That supplies a missing link.
And this: the Biden (G7) announces the g-seven countries will ban imports of gold from Russia ???
That’s an interesting one. It would restrict supply, further. But gold is about to snap anyway. What is the un-visible point of the that? Is this just more cover for what is inevitable? It’s gold, so there’s got to be another angle. Here’s yet another, a weird one. Federal Reserve has had the longstanding bullshit duel-mandate of price stability and employment. Congresswoman Waters introduced a bill that gives the Fed a third directive; policy based on gender and equality, correcting systemic racism…
Less than helpful, bad timing, deranged authors. But, that’s too stupid to be stupid, we’d be stupid to think it’s stupid. A lot of things out there look like narrative blame-prep.
All of this just to add to the original point, the message from the pink house is another bad omen. Collapse, or some aspects of collapse, definitely don’t have to drag out. All of a sudden, non linear, entirely possible. Especially considering the quadrillions in derivatives. Maybe we’re racing toward a Tower of Fiat Moment?
A Russian ruble, that equals gold, that equals grain, is honest trade, pure and simple, and that has previously been the message coming out of tzarist Russia, as the Eurasian center of world stability.
America will only benefit from learning to trade with Russia, and Bering Strait crossing is a window of opportunity:
“Russia desires above all the maintenance of the American Union as one indivisible nation,” Foreign Minister Alexander Gorchakov wrote in 1862 to Bayard Taylor, secretary of the U.S. embassy in St. Petersburg.
In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the USA, for 7.2 million dollars, and, as a former landlord, Russia has precedence in the USA, and could buy back Alaska, and thus be given caretaker keys, to the oval office.
In one’s humble opinion, far too much presumption made and given to opportunists on the geopolitical stage. However, it is their right to Tango with whom they choose.
When one considers the demographics of Argentina it’s not surprising that the BRICS association has some appeal to the politically established within the country going way back. There’s a lot of folks of European decent within its borders. Even some folks made famous by their associations with the Nazi’s of World War II. Especially, those business prone on conducting secret wartime projects despite Germany’s losses under the Third Reich. But, then there’s that “undeclared war” fought between Argentina and Great Britain back in 1982 over control of the Falkland Islands – Islas Malvinas and those associated island dependencies.
Due to a somewhat rash chiefly political decision by a frustrated Lt. Gen. Leopoldo Galtieri, frustrated at those long-running negotiations, he went and launched an invasion of the islands believing he’d drive out the Brits before they knew what happened. His military junta, another coup at that time having taken over the government by force, thought they’d have their way in the South Atlantic. Like Hitler did, Gen Galtieri underestimated the fight within the British. PM Margaret Thatcher wasn’t going to put up with it. She wasn’t playing with lose marbles in the noggin.
The article gets ‘AAA’s’ for those (a’s) within Edward Bernays, “Propaganda >> Prop(a)g(a)nd(a),” for further distractions to manipulate popular thinking (again). It seems that several others of that BRICS association have ‘island’ on the brain or further land acquisition by way of forced annexation, too. There are no halo wearing aficionados in that geopolitical arrangement anymore than there any on “K” street.
Those ‘a’s from Edward Bernays, “Propaganda”:
a – a presidential candidate may be “drafted” in response to “overwhelming popular demand,” but it is well known that his name may be decided upon by half a dozen men sitting around a table in a hotel room.
a – as civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented.
a – an entire party, a platform, an international policy is sold to the public, or is not sold, on the basis of the intangible element of personality.
The grain markets have a great deal to show on how certain players are high-jacking, . . err, . . manipulating or rather, adjusting logistical traffic on that Black Sea that’s mostly wet one way.
Just think of those “powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial-state capitalist democracies” (Noam Chomsky) and their systems of commerce being misused and turned upon themselves as a certain Party of the east by going west hedges toward hegemony.
Bet the rent at the Casa Rosada is expensive. Makes one wonder who actually owns it now. Perhaps a proxy of M Borman.
No price discovery, means the markets are fixed.
The invisible government[$] have turn upon their own.
In above case$; own, has many implication$ and meaning$.
I’m a Buchanan isolationist and never gave a damn about America’s economic “sphere of influence” anyway. We got a cosmic sized market and trading block right here on our own continent, and if and when other countries want to buy our crap, they’re than free to make the call and place the order. It’s no matter who else India, or South Africa, or Tonga, trades with. The days of America using emerging world markets to dispose of our defects and low grade products ourselves are over anyway. Bring our production base back, bring our production STANDARDS back, restructure our domestic economy, and America will regain its standing just on it’s merits again, and not through all this fiat and fakeness. The rest of the world is rising solely on its own merits alone, merits is all the rest of the world had, it didn’t sign on to these fiat systems and schemes like the major super powers did, only powers like Russia and China made us think they did, while they bolstered their domestic economies and infrastructure and maintained protectionism, while coaxing America and Europe into believing it had to whore and bust themselves out to the rest of the world. The future is not in compromise and inclusiveness and gutting yourselves out and bending over…. the future is futtal and going to be based on covering and saving you own and your own peoples asses… all the ones with the open, capitulating midsets will be the one’s who won’t survive the new feudalism. We’re beginning to see it in other facets already, and that’s part of the plan too
The “Progressives” in the West want the global economy to be based on programmable central bank digital currencies, biometric wallets, and digital IDs, connected to vaccine passports, carbon footprints, and a social credit system based on their communist values to protect their power and wealth.
SDR = Social credit score for countries.
ESG = Social credit score for companies.
CBDC = Social credit score for citizens.
Countries, companies and citizens are balking. They will force the “Progressives” out of politics as the West implodes.
Eurasian expansion into South America has Alaska and Texas as natural access points, via Bering Strait crossing.
A Khazarian empire, in the Ukrainian bread basket, is about Khazarian royalty in Europe seeking control of Eurasia.
The Parthian shot was – and still is – a dedicated empire killer, based on Last Supper skull drinking, at the cranial cup.
Scythian Ashtanga is original Christianity, proven and documented, as Kolovrat, by Sanskrit and Old Norse:
Great work, again! Points all well made and very telling for now and the future. (One teensy point of order: acronym rather than anagram.)
Years ago Michael Hudson predicted the next currency would be IMF SDRs; if the banksters had their way. Well, know “we” know, the real goal are those programmable corporate coupons.
A Chinese type of social-credit system, that electronically attaches itself to you; a DNA technocratic day ball-and-chain, that never lets go.
The giant anaconda’s structural adjustment squeeze, is finally catching up to those who have using debts as weapons. Now, that TINA[there is no alternative] has also outlived her shelf-life.
There’s a new financial global Sheriff, and many are going to be actually represented by voting for system. Not a system composed of straw[votes]; nor dictator[sticks]; but one made of solid BRICS! Built to own; not to rent.
The U.S. has used the dollar as a weapon — rather than simply a medium of exchange — for too long, and the rest of the world is finally fed up. Who can blame them? Given how weak and inept U.S. leadership is today, they probably sense that now is the time to make the break from the dollar system that they’ve been planning for years.
I’m waiting to see the headline “Texas Wants in . . . to BRICS.”
Or perhaps those who really rule the world see a unipolar world as being less stable than a bipolar world, with 2 blocs fighting. Just like ‘1984.’
In a situation of shortages and conflict are where they feel most comfortable, not one of stability and order.
That’s how it looks to me as well. And who dominates BRICS? China! And look at their digital track and trace everything domestic model soon to be BRICS model no doubt. No hope in BRICS to be found. The world needs to go to a worldwide Constitutional, BIL of RIGHTS based 90% Democracy and false Representatives, so called Nobles, and Bankers need to be stripped of their powers due to massive criminal historic abuse. I trust that at least 10% of the planet has enough sense to block bad legislation and that’s all it would take to do so. And for stuff that is necessary you can always count on bad people to always vote on what’s in their best interest. So if something is a real problem even the worst of us will vote to fix what is effecting them as well. Never been a 9 out of 10 agreement Democracy. But if you think having a so called .0001 elite buying up all the Representation like we now have in the west is working out well then enjoy the hell fest that is coming your way. Our current form of Government is leading to an extinction level event. Don’t trust in others to lead you anymore; trust only in God and yourself. As was originally intended. We were never meant to copy the animal systems all around us as our model of governing ourselves. We were intended to follow our Divine inspiration and evolve spiritually to a much superior form of existence. Beast systems where the most cunning and brutal form a strict hiarchy like in wild animals was a major step in the wrong direction and is the opposite of Spiritual enlightenment and Divine based 90% Democratic self rule.
Saudi Arabia is also knocking on the door to BRICS! Everybody knows USA is bankrupt & heading for a Civil War! Putin once said the CIA pursues it’s on own interest at the expense of the American Citizens. Putin knows what’s up! Keep in mind Trump got rid of MS13 assassins that probably would’ve been knocking on Dr. Farrell’s front door. Where are all the mercenaries? Ukraine, getting slaughtered by the Russians. If not for the Russians we could be dealing with a lot more than MK Ultra shooters, they don’t have an endless supply of those MK Ultra Shooters!
USA has the talent & resources to create Industry but we don’t make much in the USA anymore! So BRICS & the missing $$ will force USA to deregulate, create Industry inside the USA, & of course confiscate stolen assets & $$.
It’s going to be difficult times but enough people “get it” so we’ll get through it to build a better World.
Thwarting the Ukrainian NATO ambition, is annihilation of the Khazarian crusade of the Vatican, and dethroning the ambition of the Khazarian playacting pretenders, who pose as fake royalty in Europe, by destroying the returning ambition of the Khazarian movie moguls in Hollywood, who want a new Khazarian empire of lies to rise in the Ukraine:
Another nail in the coffin of what is Natostan possibly?
Americans of European descent have a returning instinct, that seeks origin in Europe, and that has a natural conclusion, when diverted through the Bering Strait.
WELCOME TO ALASKA
There is magic in steam locomotion,
roller-coasting beyond horizon,
with greetings at gate
in Bering Strait,
traveling New York to London.
US stampede in the Ukraine is UNNATURAL, because Kolovrat is the Scythian source of original Christianity, that brought down the Assyro-Babylonian and Greco-Roman empire.
Putin the Great, crowned as Kremlin Tzar,
stands, as mighty ruler of Russia,
and Scythian horse kick
in Ukraine picnic,
flows sparkling wine and caviar.
Fernandez magic wand casting spells “imperative that the hostilities in Ukraine cease.” I don’t need a spell, just Russians going back to their borders from 2014.
Argentinian “boys with swastikas” financing Russian alternative financial system trying to crash USA? We’ll see how this will pan out.
Another question is, are they in cahoots with Chilean “boys with swastikas” and Gehlen network in Russia that is a question?
A proposal has also been floated to create an “alternative IMF” by the same BRICS countries and others using assets-based currency. This means that the “Natostan” countries will be asked to pay in that currency if they want to import anything from the other 70% of the world. Thus concluding a long historical phase of monetary domination descending from Venice, going through Spain Portugal France Holland and England, and now, with the dollar, stuck in a dead-end street.
Living in Natostan myself I am not looking forward to reality but it is about time the other 70% can stop being robbed blind with fiat money worth exactly nothing!
Maybe waking up to reality can heal many woes the world is living under currently!
It’s all but guaranteed that one or more of the BRICS countries will set up their own IMF. That will necessitate a new reserve currency, which will result in what you just described. RIP La Serenissima!
You are so right!
No time like the present!
Now, will the the dominoes begin to fall-in-line?
I wonder if the 40 billion dollars has already D-I-S-A-P-P-E-A-R-E-D …. now you see it now you don’t where it goes nobody knows.
“One possibility might be to use the new commodity-based trade currency planned for the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which is likely to rope in all the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation network, and possibly the commodity-exporting BRICS as well.”
This has been under development for years. Looks like it’s ready and I think this is key.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that banks from BRICS nations can freely connect to the System for Transfer of Financial Messages (SPFS), Russia’s alternative to SWIFT.”
Russian financial messenger ready for BRICS – Putin — RT Business News
Most interesting that the next G20 Meeting is being hosted by Indonesia and the Indonesian President said this week that he has delivered a message to Russia’s Vladimir Putin from Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky.
President Joko Widodo said his country would like the Ukraine war to end soon and he wished to help start communication between the two leaders of Russia and Ukraine. Presumbaly the actual message had come from the USA White House and Indonesia was its mail man.
The USA is an empire of lies, and it is deemed non-agreement-capable, and second US stampede of Iceland has only one possible response:
Man is born and bred for war. Nothing is forgotten. Nothing is ever forgotten:
