Listen to a reading of this article:
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has announced that he expects NATO will be deepening its relationship with its “partners” in the Asia-Pacific because China has not condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“We see that China has been unwilling to condemn Russia’s aggression, and has joined Moscow in questioning the right of nations to choose their own path,” Stoltenberg said at a press conference on Tuesday. “At a time when authoritarian powers are pushing back on the rules-based international order, it is even more important for democracies to stand together, and protect our values. So I expect we will agree to deepen NATO’s cooperation with our Asia-Pacific partners, including in areas such as arms control, cyber, hybrid, and technology.”
Some “Asia-Pacific partners” named by Stoltenberg in his speech include “Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea.” He also named “Georgia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina” as additional non-NATO “partners” of the military alliance.
As the late scholar on US-Russia relations Stephen Cohen explained years before the Ukraine crisis erupted in 2014, Moscow sees NATO as an “American sphere of influence,” and the expansion of NATO and NATO influence as expansion of that sphere. As the “North Atlantic” Treaty Organization continues to expand its influence and intimacy with “partners” surrounding China, we can probably expect Beijing to take a similar view.
Gen. Milley Says Risk of Conflict ‘Between Great Powers’ Is Increasing

Also on Tuesday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley told the House Armed Services Committee that the US needs to prepare for significant conflict with both Russia and China, echoing Stoltenberg’s comments about the “rules-based international order”.
“We are now facing two global powers: China and Russia, each with significant military capabilities both who intend to fundamentally change the rules based current global order,” Milley said. “We are entering a world that is becoming more unstable and the potential for significant international conflict is increasing, not decreasing.”
As we’ve discussed previously, these newspeak terms “rules-based international order” and “rules-based global order” really mean nothing other than “Washington-based global order”. It is wordplay designed to sidestep less convenient terms like “international law”, which is very clearly defined and not nearly as subject to US control as these other terms which mean nothing other than whatever the US empire wants them to mean.
People lost their minds when President Biden uttered the phrase “new world order” last month and were quickly informed by mainstream “fact checkers” that this does not validate longstanding conspiracy theories about an elite agenda to create a one-world government. In reality, though, the real agenda to create a one-world government is not some hidden conspiracy involving secret societies and shadowy figures with Jewish surnames. The US empire is openly working to unite the planet under a single power structure which effectively functions as one government in many ways.

Back when the United Nations was being formed in 1945, Albert Einstein wrote hopefully about the possibility of a future one-world government and believed the primary obstacle to its emergence was the fact that the Soviet Union would resist joining it. Einstein therefore concluded that the best thing would be for other nations to band together under a “partial world Government… comprising at least two-thirds of the major industrial and economic areas of the world.”
And what’s interesting is that this is pretty much what ended up happening. The United States, along with the oligarchs and government agencies who run it, has become the hub of a vast undeclared empire unified not under an official imperial flag but under a network of alliances, treaties, “partnerships”, predatory loans and secret deals which other governments are encouraged to sign on to by varying degrees of coercion, with the understanding that if they don’t join up they will find themselves facing the wrath of the empire. Nations like China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Bolivia, Syria and Venezuela have wholly resisted being brought underneath this power umbrella, while the remainder of the world has fallen into varying degrees of membership within the undeclared empire.
The empire’s member states have their own official governments with their own official laws and their own official elections (where applicable), but on international matters they move more or less as a cohesive unit against the nations who have resisted absorption into the imperial blob. This is what unipolar hegemony looks like, and the US has had a standing policy to preserve that unipolar hegemony since the fall of the Soviet Union.
This is the real one-world government conspiracy. The one with the most tangible reality behind it which most directly affects our lives. You don’t need to plunge down a bunch of paranoid rabbit holes to see it, you just have to watch the news with an understanding of which governments are part of this giant power structure and which ones have refused to be absorbed into it. It explains pretty much everything you see on the world stage.

Virtually every major international news story, underneath all the imperial narrative spin, is nothing other than the story of a giant US-centralized power structure working to incorporate more and more nations under its umbrella and smash any nation which refuses by any means necessary. Once you really see this you can never unsee it, because it tracks so consistently all across the spectrum. And once it’s seen, the major international conflicts being focused on by the imperial media will never again be confusing to you.
This is why they are ramping up aggressions against China as they prepare a campaign to stop its rise before its power makes a US-dominated world order a permanent impossibility. This is why they persisted in provocations that experts had long warned would lead to a Russian attack on Ukraine and are now leveraging the invasion to push for regime change in Moscow. This is why nations like Pakistan who get too close to defying the empire are threatened with regime change. This is why the imperial news cycle churns out narratives telling us Saddam needs to go, Gaddafi needs to go, Assad needs to go, Maduro needs to go, Kim Jong-Un needs to go, etc.
The US-centralized empire is continually working to unify the world under one power structure, and if it someday succeeds the result will not functionally be different from a one-world government. The problem, of course, is that some nations are resisting this agenda, and the ones who have been most successful in that resistance are armed with nuclear weapons. The agenda to secure total global domination at all cost is literally risking the life of every organism on this planet, and tensions along this front are only continuing to escalate.

The entire argument for a “rules-based international order” led by the United States is that it makes the world a more peaceful and harmonious place, but this argument is nullified by the omnicidal nature of the very measures which must be taken to secure that world order. US unipolar hegemony doesn’t make the world more peaceful, it makes it more dangerous. It cannot be maintained without nonstop violence and steadily escalating nuclear brinkmanship. “Pax Americana” is a lie.
The competition-based models that have been normalized for humanity are going to wipe us all out if we don’t change them very soon. Nations cannot keep waving armageddon weapons at each other because a few manipulators in the US Beltway convinced decision makers that they should rule the world. We cannot keep feeding our ecosystem into the gears of an insatiable capitalism machine that will collapse if it doesn’t continually expand.
We are going to have to find a way to move into collaboration-based systems with each other, with other nations, and with our environment. This way of living on this planet is utterly unsustainable.

Russia has done humanity a huge favor by invading Ukraine with tanks and missiles. By doing so, it’s alerted the world to the real strategy of the US and its “defence” “partners”. It’s truly brave and visionary of Putin to take such massive military action, because people will inevitably focus on the killings, the bombings, the massacres, the humanitarian disaster, the refugees, the nuclear implication, etc – instead of seeing what Putin is really doing in highlighting for the world how bad the US’s warmongering strategy is and will be.
Thankfully, because of the democratisation of media provided by the internet, not everyone will be brainwashed by the US Deep State media machine (CNN, MSNBC, BBC, etc) – so thanks for this blog and others like it in putting the truth out there – that this war is actually a good thing that Putin is doing.

Exceptionally insightful analysis of the state of things: https://www.ecosophia.net/the-end-of-the-european-age/
“Every nation, like every generation, passes from a youth full of ideals and high hopes to an old age defined by the exact mathematical consequences of its actions. The old belt of high civilizations had its own burdens and its own decadence to pay for, and paid for them. Now, its strength renewed, it’s rising, while the bill for Europe’s age of dominion is being totted up patiently by old Father Time, for payment in full. It shouldn’t be surprising, after all, that the nations that dominated the world during the preindustrial era should be in line to dominate it again as the industrial age winds down.”
“it’s the European age that’s ending, not the American age. The American age hasn’t begun yet. The United States these days is a Third World country catapulted by a chapter of historical accidents into a temporary position as global hegemon. Its Europeanized elites, in the usual Third World fashion, are a small minority maintaining a tenuous temporary mastery over restless masses that don’t share its ideals and its interests, and are beginning to sense their potential power.”

I’ve always said there is no functional difference between an American globalist and an American nationalist. Both think the US state should dominate the world, along with a few compliant foreign partners. The American globalist says it’s for the good of the globe; the American nationalist says it’s in the best interests of the US.

Eddy / April 7, 2022
James, I don’t believe you’ll find too many average Australians who would speak publicly in support of the clowns in our Government. Australians have a habit of calling a spade, a spade. We don’t hesitate calling our P.M. an idiot, (if the shoe fits, wear it) which after all he IS. People forget, America organised a COUP in Australia, because the sitting Government chose to do it’s own thing. An event that seems to have escaped the memory of many Australians, but rest assured, our politicians will NEVER forget that event. It has shaped our politicians and successive Governments ever since. There’s not one politician in Australia today, who would stand up and voice a contradictory opinion to anything emanating from Washington, to do so, would ensure the destruction of their political careers, (possibly even their lives) and the disappearance of their golden hand shake, which they have worked so hard to achieve. This insane program being initiated by this same Government, under the pretext of securing our nation, is nothing but a means to hock our nation for the next four to five generations or more. Australia, or it’s people, most certainly will NOT be benefiting one iota from this. Every piece of technology required to support this program, is not built in Australia, and will need to be purchased from the usual sources at massive cost. It’s bloody sad really, if we had decent politicians, we’d be fully on board with BRICS and the new silk road, which rather than hock us to the eyeballs, would actually bring in money to the state. But that’s the issue here, the U.S. and it’s sycophant followers, refuse to become part of this, because they won’t be allowed to CONTROL things, and share the benefits equally amongst the members, they want the LOT for themselves, so no matter what, these two systems, according to the West, MUST be destroyed, and never allowed to bring the member nations up from 3rd World countries into the first World on an equal basis. IF, this anti East program is allowed to proceed, Australia will be paying a very expensive cost indeed.

Er, which coup was that Eddy? Whitlam? the Globalist extraordinaire? The fool who signed the Lima Agreement which destroyed our country and our independence?
He was kicked to the kerb at the behest of the general public who had had enough.
We are STILL suffering from the disastrous decisions of Whitlam and his acolyte Keating.
A pox on both of them.
Stephen Braithwaite / April 10, 2022
In 1975, the Whitlam government was overthrown by the CIA, basically for seeking a path of independence from our Washington masters. Now we are not a free nation. We are a nation where our media and our politicians are controlled by our puppet masters to the extent where our government is locked down in obeisance to the empire.
Much more recently, it has been shown that Kevin Rudd was pushed. Not for seeking a measure of independence from our Washington masters, but for attempting to make global corporations pay for extracted minerals.
Helen B / April 10, 2022
Whatever else the CIA is, it doesn’t work against the globalist agenda, and Whitlam was for globalism in spades. I lived through it. I remember it. I remember my horror when he signed the Lima Agreement and we have been reaping the “rewards” ever since.
No, the Whitlam apologists will tell you it was the CIA, or the boogey man, but the Australian public had had him up to their necks. The entire Whitlam and Keating reigns saw our sovereignty destroyed … it is far more likely that they were working FOR the CIA and the globalists.
Having said that, I can’t think of any PMs since Menzies that I would give a gong to … that’s why we have to break the either/or alternating political parties in power. I will be voting the Freedom parties this election, along with many many other Australians, in the hope that we can break this destructive habit.
Deschutes / April 7, 2022
The total, complete assholes who run the U.S. government and military are entirely to blame for the conflict in Ukraine vs Russia as well as the coming conflict with China. Johnstone does a great job in this article explaining how it works: every country must submit to U.S. diktat and allow itself to be economically and militarily controlled by Washington. Any country which dares to be free and independent will be sanctioned and regime changed. A good analogy for what the U.S. has become is this: imagine an island in the ocean with many different tribes living on it. Everything is fine–except there is one tribe which spends half of its money on war and weapons–and it keeps running around the island threatening, attacking, killing and finally occupying the leadership of other tribes. It has conquered and subjugated many tribes except for a handful of tribes which have been strong enough to rebuff the militaristic asshole tribe. Unfortunately the militaristic asshole tribe (the U.S.A.), has made the entire island miserable with its nonstop propaganda, lies and accusations against the other independent tribes, and wages nonstop wars, sanctions and threats against its neighbors. I mean, who would tolerate such an asshole tribe as this? Such behaviour would be seen as entirely unacceptable as the Washington tribe would rightly be seen as a criminalistic terrorist thief running around with a gun continually attacking other tribes to take everything they have of value and installing its own puppet ruler. That’s pretty much today’s “exceptional nation” in a nutshell. The only way it is exceptional is in its exceptional assholishness and nonstop wars against other countries.
Helen B / April 7, 2022
Very well put. In a nutshell.
Eddy / April 7, 2022
CORRECT, but it’s not just Washington, the REAL leader in all this, is none other than the City Of London, from which all the planning and orders flow. All one needs to do is copy and collect all the MSM releases offered by British Authorities over the years, and especially regards Russia, who it would seem, is in the dead center of their bullseye, and has been so now for many years. Britain has lost it’s Commonwealth countries which it used to bleed dry, they are in dire straights, all they can see, is the riches Russia holds, and they covet that very much.(while I’m on this subject, it would seem Australians have a very short memory too, they used to fawn at the feet of the U.K. believing they were their masters, until WW 2, when the Brits ABANDONED every Australian to the Japanese. Today, Australians have forgotten that lesson, and THINK the Brits are going to protect them, AGAIN ???? L.O.L.) They will do anything, even murder thousands of people, in their hast to get a foot hold in that country, and steal everything they have. If they can get support and shared costs of destroying that nation, so be it.
The Hyenas are already circling around the borders, with Poland already laying claim to parts of Ukraine that it lost after WW 2. So it’s clear, they at the least, clearly understand what is going on here.

‘Rules-based international order = Follow the rules set by the US, or else.
‘It is even more important for democracies to stand together, and protect our values’ = We don’t care if a country isn’t a democracy as long as it does what we tell it to do, and believe what we tell it to believe. All tyrants and dictators welcome (except Putin & Xi).

Pax Americana??? The US has been at war with someone somewhere for almost the entire post WW2 period. The self-delusion of the West is breathtaking. China is promoting a FAIR world order … a multi-polar world … which requires respect for the other parties’ points of view and national interests. Now we know the US won’t go along with that … but maybe it’s time for other countries presently caught in the net of US imperialism to listen to their own citizens.
Allan Howard / April 6, 2022
Two or three days after Russia invaded Ukraine it occurred to me to check out John Pilger’s website to see if he’d posted any articles about the situation, and he had, albeit on the 17th of February. And in the article he said the following:
Setting aside the manoeuvres and cynicism of geopolitics, whomever the players, this historical memory is the driving force behind Russia’s respect-seeking, self-protective security proposals, which were published in Moscow in the week the UN voted 130-2 to outlaw Nazism. They are:
– NATO guarantees that it will not deploy missiles in nations bordering Russia. (They are already in place from Slovenia to Romania, with Poland to follow)
– NATO to stop military and naval exercises in nations and seas bordering Russia.
– Ukraine will not become a member of NATO.
– the West and Russia to sign a binding East-West security pact.
– the landmark treaty between the US and Russia covering intermediate-range nuclear weapons to be restored. (The US abandoned it in 2019)
These amount to a comprehensive draft of a peace plan for all of post-war Europe and ought to be welcomed in the West.
Russia issued its list of proposals on the 17th of December, but they were of course ignored and dismissed. But, it just occurred to me a bit earlier to do a search so as to try and ascertain to what degree the MSM (in the ‘West’) reported these proposals, and the only thing I found was an article in the Guardian (posted Dec 17th), albeit slanted negatively regards the proposals, starting with the headline and sub-headline:
Russia issues list of demands it says must be met to lower tensions in Europe
Contentious security guarantees Moscow is seeking include a ban on Ukraine from entering Nato
Perhaps a few other MSM covered it, but they’re not coming up in my search because of the way I phrased my search possibly, but I doubt that it amounted to more than a handful, and that they TOO spun it negatively more than likely. But I have little doubt that the vast majority of the MSM deliberately withheld the information from their readers and viewers and listeners, and did so precisely because they knew that the proposals would be ignored AND that that would leave Russia/Putin with no alternative, and they knew that when Russian troops DID invade, that ALL the Western leaders would be endlessly repeating the mantra that the ‘attack was *unprovoked*’, which is precisely what Biden and Johnson and Stoltenberg et al have been doing since Feb 24th, and are STILL doing.
Anyway, the following piece was at the top of the list of results, and although not MSM, it’s typical of the way the MSM in the West have been ‘reporting’ the episode:
‘NATO Terms Kremlin’s War On Ukraine ‘unprovoked Invasion’ As It Strengthens Deployments’

Pascal / April 6, 2022
Double trouble: the guys who decide all this are a fraction of a percent in the Washington beltway but ultimately, the wind of history is moved by demography. #1: it’s pretty clear by now that elections are a joke. I’ve got no skin in the game not having ever voted for any of the politistutes anywhere and not even being American but it seems pretty clear, whichever way you look at it, that the last US election was stolen. Not because of voting fraud which hasn’t been proven yet on a sufficient enough scale (there’s always voting fraud anyway and it works both ways) but because of four years of Russiagate slander and the blatant cover up of the Biden family’s corruption two weeks before the election. Enough Americans have declared in polls that they wouldn’t have voted Biden if they’d been correctly informed about Hunter’s laptop content to make the election de facto stolen.
Which doesn’t change anything anyway because Trump has proved beyond doubt that there was nothing he could do against the swamp. After being goaded by MIC shills into assassinating General Soleimani (whatever he may have done afterwards to amend, as was argued in this comment section, the fact is that Soleimani has remained dead to this day and the prognostic is not good), he was then goaded into ruining the US economy that his business acumen had propped up by allowing insane measures (lockdowns, bailouts) against a scamdemic that only killed 0,03% of the population with an average death age of 82, above life expectancy – not even mentioning the CDC’s gaslighting.
He wasn’t up to the task. Nobody is. The fraction of the percent will do whatever they want as long as they own the propaganda machine to manufacture consent.
On the other hand, this is only valid in the trilateral empire (US/UK plus EU and Austrasian stooges: Japan, South Korea and Australia), i.e. about one billion people, half of whom don’t care, don’t vote and consider politics like one of the weather elements: there’s nothing you can do against tornados, hailstorms, snowstorms and the wind of history kind of thing.
Now Eurasia minus the EU and Austrasian stooges totals well over four billion folks who don’t give a rat’s ass about the Beltway’s propaganda, of whom of course half don’t care either but that’s still four times as many. Besides the re-election of Orban in Hungary shows that the gap in the EU between the woke West and the Visegrad “ugly duckling” (Hungary, Czechia, Slovakia and Poland) is only widening.
#2: the Romans were eventually overwhelmed by the Germanic tribes: Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals and later Vikings including the Normans, the Angles and the Saxons who moved the center of the world from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. If China, Russia and India manage to federate Eurasia into one block through the BRI, the center of the world will move to Central Asia and the US and its colossal debt will have to live with it or become a vitrified parking lot. That’s the stake.
Helen B / April 6, 2022
Yes, sadly, I tend to agree. Much as he is hyped, Trump is not perfect, and they out-manoeuvred him. He had the ammunition, but didn’t fire. And you don’t get many chances against the corruption that is the US. He went in on the back foot, and kept stepping backwards against the onslaught. Now he is so terrified to be called a “Putin apologist” that he doesn’t see the obvious.
The killing of Soleimani happened because he was gaslighted by those he appointed and trusted, none of whom was trustworthy or even worthy. It was a huge blow to his acceptability in the Middle East where Soleimani had been more successful in combatting terrorists than any one in the US.
Clearly the BRI will overwhelm the Western “Rules-based Order” (whatever that means) because it promises fairness and prosperity. The US merely plunders, and not to benefit its citizens, but to enrich the ones who have enslaved the country. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

They don’t give a damn what the American people want and we have been like slow cooked frogs getting our rights taken away, and are living in an increased police state, with intense media/information control, and are under heavy surveillance etc.
I root against the U.S. Oligarchy. Their agenda to rule the world. I am a normal human being and because they already rule the U.S. and given our realities here,THAT is proof they are horrific leaders. Currently the only thing I feel can give any hope is to keep trying to get more Americans to unplug from corporate owned/sponsored media, continue exposing the corrupt U.S. Oligarch, and keep trying to get better information.
If you have to lie to the people to get them to support your agenda… your agenda MUST BE ABSOLUTE CRAP! so say I to the U.S. Oligarchs.
BillRiceJr / April 6, 2022
As usual, Caitlin’s vision is 20-20 while 99 percent of opinion leaders require bizarre bifocals to concoct all the requisite and bogus “threats” that make possible an evil world order.
But one genuine conspiracy (completely ignored) makes possible the funding of all of these bullying operations: The magic (fiat) printing press.
If any nefarious conspiracy is going to be exposed, one has to first “follow the money.”
Key question: where does the “money” to fund the military might of the U.S. government (and NATO) actually come from? No, it doesn’t come exclusively from tax receipts …. growing percentages of this money actually come from government “borrowing” in the bond markets … an arrangement that is really a euphemism for printing money out of thin air.
The U.S. government employs both carrots and sticks to protect this magic and vital printing press.
The carrot: If nations (and oligarch crony corporations) do use the U.S. dollar in economic transactions, they will be allowed to continue to participate in global finance and economics.
The stick: Those who do NOT “play ball” will be punished severely (via fiat-dollar sanctions). Nations that do not sign on will also be subject to “regime-change” operations now or in the future.
Basically, the “evil empire” of the U.S. government would not be possible without unlimited access to as much money as is required to ensure its military remains the biggest bully on the block.
(It’s actually more than just military expenditures. Basic operations – which keep enough of the population comfortable enough to also remain blind – are also funded. For what it’s worth, these governmental outlays include rapidly growing pensions, Medicare, Medicaid, various “stimulus” payouts and funding of a large city of corrupt agencies etc. Take away this magic printing press and the Powers that Be might have 50 million Americans put off enough to actually attempt to drain the swamp).
In short, this printing press MUST be protected at all costs. If our rulers did NOT do this, the Status Quo would simply not be possible. This “Status Quo” of course also includes mind-boggling wealth creation for the oligarch “partners” who also agree to play along. The program of course benefits the 1 Percent, but also ensures the bottom 50 percent don’t go full kook and start talking about revolution.
The ONE development that might imperil this vital fiat-dollar printing press is if more people, nations or institutions actually lost faith in the U.S. dollar (and/or the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. government).
A sustained spike of gold and silver prices, history’s “real money,” would almost certainly produce a “canary in the coal mine” signal that would show that the masses are beginning to lose confidence in “Monopoly money.” The continuation of myriad evil scams would suddenly be in doubt.
So to protect the fiat printing press, the Powers that Be must continually attack sentiment for the “safe haven” assets of gold and silver. Which is exactly what they have done for years by manipulating said “markets.”
With skeptics of the COVID narrative, the narrative-protectors created terms like “science deniers” and dangerous “misinformation” specialists to smear and silence dissenters.
For those of us who who believe unlimited money printing is a catastrophe waiting to happen, they created labels like “gold bug” and “conspiracy kook” to neutralize any real push-back.
The propaganda program to vilify proponents of “real money” has been spectacularly successful. While our grandparents and great grandparents understood there is no “free lunch,” almost nobody today worries about unlimited money-printing.
Of all the conspiracies and scandals the “watchdog press” could easily expose (but won’t), the most important one would be the corrupt effort to rig precious metals markets – all to protect the Fiat Printing Press, which makes possible all the travesties that Caitlin and a few others rail against.
In today’s piece, Caitlin astutely observes: “Once you really see this you can never unsee it, because it tracks so consistently all across the spectrum.”
Here Caitlin is writing about a “one-world order” clearly orchestrated by officials in Washington. Far fewer people see with the same clarity the crimes and mass corruption that makes the financing and funding of all of this possible.
Russia and China must get this, which is why they have been acquiring as much physical gold as they could in recent years. They must sense that the “end game” in this geopolitical chess game will come down to a battle between real money and Washington’s Monopoly money.
If these and other nations want to defeat America’s efforts to implement their complete agenda, powerful nations who are not members of America’s Fiat Club are going to have to throw a giant wrench into the gears of the U.S. government’s Magic Printing Press.
Once upon a time, I thought many conspiracies were implausible. I thought this because I believed that if too many people knew what was really happening, some whistleblower” would eventually talk and expose it.
I’ve now come to believe that the more people who benefit from a conspiracy, the less likely it is that any conspiracy will ever be exposed. And the Mother of All conspiracies is the effort to protect the fiat printing press – which won’t be exposed because too many powerful and wealthy people benefit from this crooked house.
The Biggest Scandal of Them All is that the watchdog corporate press has been completely captured and will never expose any of the world’s important conspiracies. Certainly, “rigging of gold and silver markets” is a taboo topic off limits to real inquiry by officials (who of course benefit from this system) but also, surreally, for investigative journalists.
Anyway, the one-world-order folks deserve congratulations for making sure that no one (who matters) is willing to “follow the money.” As long as the public remains oblivious to the system that is being used to protect the fiat printing press no real or positive change is likely to happen.

Yep it is all based on fiat money, and the US and IRS has made it very difficult and taxable for individuals to hold gold and silver, because “government” (actually private bankers) want to have monopoly on their fake money for the economy that produces only weapons and consumes everything useful on the planet, while destroying the planet itself as a collateral damage.
Mike R / April 6, 2022
That’s why the US is totally freaked out over Russia’s requirement that hostile nations must pay for gas with rubles. It made a not so veiled threat to India if it makes a deal for Russian gas. China supporting Russia has the US freaked out too, with the new silk road tying all of Eurasia together in a trade network that the US can’t control, and the dollar on the way out. When nations find out that they have alternatives to the US’s economic blackmail, this may have a domino effect that ultimately ends the dollar’s status as world reserve currency. Once that happens, a nation whose primary manufactured export is weapons is mostly done.
BillRiceJr / April 6, 2022
Right. It all comes back to the dollar serving as the world’s reserve currency, which wouldn’t be the case if enough people began to question the value of all that Monopoly money America’s “printing press” is churning out. BTW, this is why the main prince in Saudi Arabia can literally get away with ordering the gruesome murder of a dissident.

Please allow me to post this series of quotes to back your very good exposé:
… which make this quote by David Rockefeller all the more cringeworthy:
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years…
It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.
The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.”
– David Rockefeller, in an address given to Catherine Graham, publisher of The Washington Post and other media luminaries in attendance in Baden, Germany at the June 1991 annual meeting of the world elite Bilderberg Group.
Inna / April 6, 2022
Printing paper money then killing people to maintain monopoly over their money printing press (as well as the free press) does not sounds very intellectual or elite to me, yet there they are, the luminaries of inhumanity.
Tedder / April 7, 2022
To grasp what money is, I read David Graeber’s ‘Debt: The first 5000 years’ as well as several of Michael Hudson’s works; lately I have been interested in MMT. What I learn is money evolved out of credit systems and taxation. MMT describes money as a creation of the state to provision itself, then enacts taxes to get rid of it. Whether or not the ‘authorities’ understand this is no matter because that is how things work.
So, money is essentially born of violence, in that if you don’t pay your taxes, you get beef. On the other hand, taxes benevolently cause money to cycle in a flow of creation, work, destruction. What we see now in America is way too much untaxed money flowing around without doing work and causing problems.
BillRiceJr / April 6, 2022
Wow. TX for posting.

…most all/money is mere numbers in computerized bank ledgers…it is not ‘printed’ as you say…please get ‘monetary realism’…
…according to steve zarlenga [if anyone knows of a better monetary historian, please name] there has never been any honest [100% ‘reserve’] gold/silver/etc. money system…(metallic money systems are a monstrously goddamned foolish and destructive idea)… ..the bankster$ under ‘the gold standard’ merely used gold [instead of largely ‘bonds’ today] as the ‘reserves’ in this stinking rotten ‘fractional reserve’-based, commercial bankster monetary order under which mankind has been enslaved now for several centuries…
…hopefully people start figuring out that “they who get to use/direct/etc. ‘newly-created’ money FIRST are our true rulers”, not the phony, hand-picked ‘liberal/left’ vs. ‘conservative/right’ puppet politicians your true ma$ter$ lead you to believe are ‘in control’…
BillRiceJr / April 7, 2022
I do know today’s “money” is no longer “printed” but I trust readers get my point about creating money out of thin air. I do think money creation needs to be tied to, or restrained, by something “real” and gold and silver are real. I’m a “gold bug” – an insect worthy of being squashed. But is there such a thing as a fiat bug?
dana / April 7, 2022
….all money is ‘fiat’ in that whatever ‘the government DECLARES’ as ‘legal tender’ for payment of taxes, fees fines, its own salaries, etc. will be (((((THE MONEY)))))
…the same plutocrats who control the system now will control all the stinking gold/silver in any ‘gold money system’…they will also control the fractional reserve rates….furthermore an increase in the money supply would require massive damage to mother earth…what a miserable idea…
…what might ‘restrain’ any monetary injustices is a society where ((((THE MONEY)))) is understood…[no such societies exist]…
…btw, every republicrat bidumper in ‘murca i know falsely believes some version of ”the government ‘prints’ the money”…that’s why i ask you to consider using more enlightening terms…don’t fertilize ignorance…
hodgicus / April 7, 2022
All money is not fiat money. When we talk about fiat currency, we mean the government sets the value to suit its own day-to-day purposes, instead of the value being tied to a substance with an intrinsic worth of its own, e.g. gold.
What you mean is that the govt decides what constitutes currency by fiat, and that is true. But it is not at all the same thing that is meant by the term fiat currency.
As famously said by someone somewhere, a currency will always seek to match the intrinsic value of whatever it is minted on, whether that’s paper or copper or silver. Or electronic bits.
It is the best explanation for why a 1922 dollar was worth pretty much the same as an 1822 dollar, but a 2022 dollar is worth less than 1% of a 1922 dollar. And imo, it is ‘way overvalued, thanks to being the oil reserve currency. That is going to change, because no balloon can be inflated indefinitely.
dana / April 8, 2022
SET ‘THE VALUE’ OF GOLD/SILVER TOO!! (see monetary act of ?1792)
hodgicus / April 8, 2022
If you are referring to section nine of the 1792 Coinage Act, it set the value of the dollar, not the metal. Ten dollars is to be worth so many grains of pure gold, not the other way around. Gold has an intrinsic value of its own in human affairs, and the coinage was tied to that intrinsic value for the purpose of making the currency trustworthy and stable.
A high-quality tailored men’s suit, in the old tag, was worth about an ounce of gold in 1880, and cost about the same in 1980.No doubt it would still cost about an ounce of gold if our so-called culture were still capable of tailoring a high quality men’s suit.
Stephen Braithwaite / April 10, 2022
How is it possible to manipulate the price of gold?
James / April 6, 2022
Thank you, Caitlin, you could post this article again and again. It says it all. Conspiracy theory is a kind of mental illness, which perhaps springs from religion that teaches us to believe in hidden forces. I’ve always found it uncomfortable to be an American, feeling the need to apologize for our rulers. It seems Oz has the same disease.
pasha / April 6, 2022
Yep. It’s like everything America touches becomes infected with leprosy, and when the body starts to rot and bits drop off, like a foot, they say, “No problem, you’ve got another one,” or, “Well, I hear they’re doing wonders with prosthetics these days.”
BillRiceJr / April 6, 2022
A conspiracy is simply two or more people working together to perpetrate some crime or fraud that people or organizations are determined to prevent others from learning.
In the movie “The Sixth Sense,” the young protagonist eventually tells a chid psychiatrist portrayed by Bruce Willis that that “I see ghosts.” Not only that, he sees them everywhere, every single day. Well, I now see conspiracies everywhere I look, every day. And, yes, this is a tad discombobulating; I’d even say pretty dang scary.
But the child always saw ghosts. With me, my visions were a new development. Or: these evil conspiracies existed all along, but I couldn’t see them … I could fill this page with “conspiracies” to cover-up facts that don’t fit the authorized Covid narrative. But as I post above, the biggest conspiracy of them all is the one to protect the all-important fiat printing press. Try to expose that one.
Pascal / April 6, 2022
Unfortunately, a lot of people have already done it: Ezra Pound (who had to spend 13 years in prison for it with no charge and of course no trial decades before Guantanamo was even a twinkle in its creator’s eyes), Eustace Mullins, Ron Paul, Bill Still (whose best videos seem to have been memory holed by YouTube) to no avail. As Rothschild said in substance: “Most people won’t be able to understand how the system works and the few who can will either be so interested from its profits or so dependant on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.”
Inna / April 6, 2022
LOL I started to learn about Finance because I wanted to be really rich, then learned about their system and realized it has been killing me. Now I would rather live a long happy life than have more money.

LOL Biden leading “new world order” – sounds like dementia speaking again.
I am sure in his world people will have to pop prescription pills in place of food, because of whom paid for his campaign and inauguration. And we all will be inoculated against the enemy propaganda, every 12 weeks.
Maybe at an additional out of pocket cost Elon M. can implant “smart” chips in our brains so we can only tune into the US propaganda.
Can’t wait to be taxed more in support of new brainless world order (note: it is the tax season in the US).
Michael Kahn / April 6, 2022
Caitlin, you lost most of my attention a few months ago, when I perceived that you have no clue to the fact of the new world order conspiracy facts. First of all, I predicted in my book first published in 2016, EXPOSING THE MONEY MACHINE that Gates would use vaccinations to depopulate the planet. We see the whole world taking the death jabs at the orders of the CDC and WHO, with about three nations declining=Tanzania, Burundi, and maybe another, and their rulers murdered mysteriously. You may want to research united nations agenda 21 and agenda 2030, or the great reset by the WEF, or the new world order, which is on the US one dollar bill in latin- novus ordo seclorum.
You have taken the stigma of “conspiracy theory’ ridicule to heart and do not research it. My book ANGRY LOUD AND CLEAR TRUTH shows how the Vatican is using the US, along with globalists (Rothschild, Rockefeller, queen of England) to achieve a one-world government and religion. They plan a 500 million survivor population by 2025- you can see evidence by researching THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES. That promotes a world population of 500 million and is authored by “RC CHRISTIAN”
Here is a letter I put in two of my books
I was perusing the contents of a book, namely Secrets of the Freemasons, by Michael Bradley, when I noticed on pages 157 and 158, the following excerpts from a letter by a thirty third degree Mason and head of the illuminati Albert Pike, also a chief justice of the Ku Klux Klan; written on August 15, 1871 to a fellow illuminate in Italy:
Here are some excerpts from that letter. They may alter your view of world events and their true conception and purposes, and reveal to you what they truly are, despite what the government and educators have taught you:
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergence caused by the ‘agentur’ (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Germany is destroyed and so that the political Zionism will be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, international communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would then be restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’ of the Illuminati between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the state of Israel) mutually destroy each other…….
We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership, and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
According to the author of the book that I happened to find this letter in, this document was displayed in The British Museum in London for a short while.

You seem to be missing the point of a “Comments” section – that being to respond to the post. Instead, you dismiss it out of hand and proceed with your own, mostly unrelated and far less substantiated narrative. If your views do not merit their own platform, please stop freeloading on Caitlin’s space.

Agree totally. May I suggest MICHAEL KAHN open up a blog of his own, wherein he can publish whatever he likes, to anyone who would share his beliefs ?

Your hocus pocus perspectives deserve attention.
1. You’re an idiot obsessed with God and the dichotomous lucifer.
2. Predicting ww1 & ww2 based a letter from Albert Pike to his italian friend means absolutely nothing, coming from a racist, confederate pig. Pure speculative, hocus-pocus bullshit.
3. White men, living within the patriarchy, is your curse. You need to wake up.

Best not to be arrogant Michael. Most of us have been aware of all the things you mention for decades. Most of us have been watching the train wreck that is our world for the same period, with very little we could do about it, though I must say I have tried. Nothing you impart is new knowledge.
Caitlin does what she can to alert the populations, most of whom were lulled to sleep by MSM decades ago.
I despair when I see posts like yours. We need to support each other, not boost our egos at the expense of someone who works hard to put it out day after day.
This is the problem with the counter narrative to MSM, and frankly the problem extends beyond that: EGO. Get yours under control and you’ll win more friends here.

The strike must begin today.
Stop shopping, buy only what you must.
If it is a gadget or a wearable or a tool, buy it used: stop feeding the monster.
Collaborate: housing, transportation, growing food– in every way you can think of, and then think of more.
Sure, the absurd inequality must be done away with. You first, suburban brats. While your brothers lack homes, you spend ten times their income on paying interest to your predators: that makes you the problem, genius. Stop feeding the monster.
Start learning to do an actual real thing, like carpentry or blacksmithing or playing guitar. It will awaken your brain and you will be more useful as well.
The World-Gobbler keeps clanking and smoking its way to the brink because you and I keep it going:
Save the World. Stop shopping.
Mike R / April 6, 2022
Exactly. The end of the consumer-based lifestyle may happen anyway, when the supply chains collapse. People will then have to move from their superficial obsession with shiny toys to actually making, building and growing things that are traded with other people.
Eddy / April 7, 2022
Seriously ? Black smithing or carpentry ????? SO if your gonna stop shopping, what’s the point of manufacturing this stuff in your home shed, if you cant sell the bloody stuff ????????? And from where are you going to obtain the TOOLS and materials you’re going to use to manufacture stuff. You’ll still have to go SHOPPING to buy all that.

The “Rules Based Order” which doesn’t have to follow it’s “rules” has just shot itself in the foot and groin, but is winning the propaganda war.
That does not prevent reality from doing its reality thing with real productive economies.
The $US is the extractive-solvent which brings free wealth to the US, and western-banking to support the imperial military and related projects.
It has been weaponized, apparently against Russia, and China, Iran, Venezuela, Libya, Iran, etc…
The majority of the world’s countries would sort of like to trade in some format which is not demonically possessed, ya’know? At least the propaganda war is going well on the home-fronts…
I’m rather worried that this may be true. Russia has been denied a hearing about Bucha at the UNSC (first time ever) by the current UNSC President (from UK). Is there something else, other than the Azov battalion killing Russian-sympathizing civilians 3 days after Russians left?
Maybe this is it, several sources seem to confirm. It is refutable if false…
Total News Blackout: US General Captured Leading Azov Nazis in Mariupol (confirmations coming in)
This does not seem to adequately refute it in the UK. It’s not a thing in the US, though, nothing at all.
DESPERATE Russian claims that a US Lieutenant General has been captured in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol have been torn apart by a BBC expert.
Tedder / April 6, 2022
I have often thought that a genuine ‘One World Government’ is a supremely good idea and necessary to achieve peace, eliminate poverty, and combat climate change, an attractive myth. The US seems in progress to achieve at least the trappings, but the problem is the Americans are just very bad at governing. The focus on aggrandizing wealth and status renders them incompetent as leaders of a cooperative enterprise to benefit all of humanity.
Michael Hudson’s Super Imperialism documents how the Americans used their financial and military dominance to strip the world’s assets and give it an economic “free lunch” in regard to domestic imports and military adventures abroad, how without the dollar hegemony, the elites would have been forced to raise taxes which would be politically unsustainable. We can only expect more of the same.
KP / April 6, 2022
All empires pass, it is the USA’s turn. They will join Holland, Portugal, Spain and the UK as has-beens, the White-eyes time in the sun is over..
The only question is, will they take all of us with them.
Spriter99880 has been censored off Twitter today, he ran excellent commentaries on Russia-Ukraine and Saudi-Yemen, but the powers hate anyone who leaves the narrative. Good luck Caitlin, we can’t afford to lose you as well!
WillD / April 7, 2022
I think the US wants us to believe it will take us with them as a threat to us, and a deterrent as well. Right now, it is doubling down on everything – going for broke. Yes, I saw the RT article about Spriter99800 and also saw his excellent analysis on theduran. He is the only sane person around with a genuine military understanding as well as direct experience of the nasty things the empire of lies does all the time – so well qualified imho to comment.
