Damned If They Do, Damned If They Don’t On The Debt Ceiling – Funding Watch

By Brandon Smith

In 2021 I printed an article titled ‘The Fed’s Catch-22 Taper Is A Weapon, Not A Policy Error’ by which I outlined the intentionally engineered lure the Federal Reserve has created for the American financial system. Particularly, I confronted the problem of strangled liquidity by way of rising debt prices vs continued cash printing and inflation.

It’s a problem that Jerome Powell warned about in 2012, years earlier than he grew to become Fed Chairman; the implications of making a stimulus dependent system after which abruptly reducing off the life assist. As quickly as he was put in as the top of the central financial institution he applied the very insurance policies he predicted would trigger a crash.

The outcome? We simply noticed the start of the tip with the most recent banking disaster involving firms like SVB, First Republic and Credit score Suisse – It’s not simply US funds, however banks all over the world that depend on liquidity injections from the Fed to remain afloat. The central bankers addicted the system to low-cost straightforward debt and now they’re taking away the medication.

In different phrases, nobody can actually argue that the central banks are ignorant or unaware of the risk. They KNOW what’s about to occur and they don’t care. However why does the institution need a disaster now as a substitute of 5 years in the past, or 5 years sooner or later?

Fortunately, a lot of the general public is turning into conscious of the varied packages to introduce CBDCs (Central Financial institution Digital Currencies), however what they might not perceive is the way by which such large financial adjustments normally occur. Usually talking, with a purpose to institute a brand new financial system the banks should take down the previous system.

The final time we noticed this occur was simply after the Nice Melancholy and WWII. The deflationary crash and the struggle conjured the right quantity of worldwide chaos and earlier than the mud settled western nations instituted the Bretton Woods settlement in 1944, making the greenback the defacto world reserve foreign money whereas locking down the value of gold.. Then they established the globalist Worldwide Financial Fund (IMF) the identical yr and the United Nations in 1945. The world was centralized dramatically in just a little over a decade.

I imagine we’re quick approaching one other engineered singularity, a managed demolition of present techniques to make means for a cashless society, a one world foreign money and world governance. I imagine this as a result of it’s all of the globalists can speak about lately; it’s not as in the event that they’re making an attempt to cover it anymore.

The BIS and IMF are actively fielding one-world digital foreign money mechanisms proper now; buildings that may combine all national CBDCs below one umbrella. Within the meantime, globalist think-tanks just like the WEF (World Financial Discussion board) are ranting excessively concerning the coming period of an AI managed financial system and a “4th Industrial Revolution” by which you’ll “personal nothing, don’t have any privateness” and might be compelled to adapt to a cashless socialist sharing system.

All they want is a scapegoat to finish their disaster system. Battle appears to work properly in distracting the lots from the true culprits behind any monetary calamity, and quite a few establishments are exhausting at work to persuade the general public that international locations like Russia are accountable for ongoing stagflation issues. In fact, the stagflation disaster began properly earlier than the struggle in Ukraine and lots of People are usually not shopping for the spin.

China, a devoted accomplice to the globalist challenge, has proven constant fealty to the IMF and is a key participant within the transfer in direction of a one-world foreign money system. As a result of they’re the biggest importer/exporter on the planet and have appreciable leverage over the US greenback, they’ve the power to strike the ultimate blow towards the greenback’s world reserve standing. A heightened battle with China could be an ideal cowl for the dumping of the Dollar, making means for the IMF’s new world foreign money, referred to as the UMU (Universal Monetary Unit).

Nonetheless, international conflagrations is not going to be sufficient for the institution to maintain the American public from scrutinizing the narrative. They want a home enemy, a daunting risk that lives proper subsequent door. That’s to say, they should discover a option to blame conservatives and liberty activists for the approaching crash that they brought about.

Needless to say the Biden Administration and the leftist media have been pumping out propaganda asserting that each one our fiscal issues together with our nationwide debt are in some way rooted in conservative insurance policies. That is nonsense.

At backside, nearly all of our financial threats could be traced immediately again to the Federal Reserve in addition to massive worldwide banks, and these establishments enact coverage REGARDLESS of the political celebration that’s in command of the federal government. However, if we’re going to speak concerning the political group that has most helped the central bankers set the calamity in movement, the Democrats win the prize.

It was Barack Obama and Joe Biden that doubled the US nationwide debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion within the span of 8 years. Trump didn’t assist issues and didn’t institute spending cuts on the degree he ought to have, however the bulk of his debt contributions occurred due to the covid response. There are a variety of points to criticize Trump for, together with the sorts of individuals he introduced into his cupboard, however the present financial chaos shouldn’t be rooted in something Trump did.

It was the Biden White Home that pressed for covid lockdown insurance policies to remain in place for years when they need to have been ended inside months as quickly because it grew to become clear the covid virus was a non-threat to 99.8% of the inhabitants. Biden and the Democrats made it not possible for the nation to proceed functioning with out trillions in covid helicopter cash, and it was these fiat measures that lastly broke the camel’s again. Costs on all the things skyrocketed below Biden, not Trump.

Nearly all of our nationwide debt issues have been piled up through the reign of Democrats, and so they CONTINUE to demand trillions extra in spending with out situations. This brings us to the debt ceiling.

Previously, the debt ceiling debate has been a predictable farce. Republicans demand cuts, they haggle with the Democrats who need a clean examine, nothing is ever actually resolved and the debt ceiling will get raised but once more with no noticeable reductions in spending. The federal government retains stealing from the American public at an exponential fee whereas additionally triggering extra inflation.

It’s a Catch-22 for conservatives. Nobody within the mainstream criticizes the Democrats for eager to spend extra as a result of most individuals don’t perceive how inflation works. All of the Dems should do is comply with affordable price range cuts, however they refuse. Once they don’t enable cuts, the Republicans are compelled to both collapse, which makes them look weak, or, they’re compelled to face their floor and be accused of reckless disregard for American debt obligations.

Democrats declare that ANY cuts to the price range will result in financial disaster. They don’t have any intention of negotiating to cut back US debt. They don’t should – All of the blame falls on conservatives regardless.

To make certain, there are a number of Neocon politicians that assist the Democrats at each flip, however there are additionally some Republicans making an attempt to tug the nation again from the brink. We should always give these individuals credit score.  It’s straightforward to accuse all political individuals of being a part of the “false left/proper paradigm,”, and possibly that was true ten years in the past, however now I think this mantra is being exploited to divide conservatives and liberty proponents from any alliances on the authorities degree.

The leftist argument on the debt ceiling is basically this: “We should hold spending extra to repair the issues created by spending an excessive amount of.”

It’s a round con job. Pursuing price range cuts is portrayed as an act of terrorism by the company media. Saving taxpayer cash is taken into account evil, and conservatives who entertain the notion are painted as insurrectionists. Why is nobody criticizing the Democrats and their all-or-nothing philosophy? In any case, price range cuts could be made whereas ALSO paying off the nationwide debt, proper?

The tactic is smart for those who have a look at it from a villain’s perspective. All of the Democrats should do shouldn’t be enable any cuts and proceed to demand extra spending with out situations. Then, when the contingent of Republicans in Congress that really care about fiscal accountability refuses to again down, the White Home, the media and nearly all of leftists provoke a propaganda wave; a synthetic outcry suggesting that “radical” conservatives are destroying the financial system.

If the conservatives give in, then the general public blames them for bowing to the “Uniparty.” In the event that they don’t give in, the institution wraps up the stagflationary collapse and lays it proper in our laps. They might attempt to drive the problem of a debt ceiling deadlock simply to cover the crash that’s occurring anyway.

Or, possibly not. Possibly this time is like all the opposite occasions and Republicans will again down but once more and the ceiling is raised by one other couple trillion {dollars}. The speaking factors I’m seeing within the media and on social media, although, recommend to me that one thing very unusual is about to occur within the debt battle. If it goes down the way in which I think, then will probably be vitally essential to disrupt the narrative.

The financial system is crashing for lots of causes and none of them have something to do with the federal government making an attempt to spend much less.
