More News, Rumors and Opinions Monday Afternoon 12-11-2023



Do you know what holds us back most of the time? It’s our own mental models that have been fed with and tainted by misinformation. It can be said that the internet is the most important tool for disseminating information we’ve had since the invention of the printing press.

Unfortunately, it is also one of the best ways of stealing or suppressing information and for putting out misinformation. Constantly exposing ourselves to popular culture and the mass media, in all its forms, will ultimately shape our reality tunnel in ways that are nor necessarily conducive to achieving our life goals or calling. Modern society has “lost the plot”.

Lies, misinformation and conspiracy theories are not free speech! They are fraud and propaganda. The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

Misinformation rules when crucial information is suppressed. It’s okay to be honest about not knowing rather than spreading falsehood. Would you enthusiastically recommend that a friend purchase something you had never tested yourself? Probably not.

But Intel providers may be doing this unwittingly with information every day. When these like-minded people get together, they often end up thinking a more extreme version of what they thought before they started to talk to each other.

Most of the time, we see only what we want to see, or what others tell us to see, instead of really investigating to see what is really there. We embrace illusions only because we are presented with the illusion that is embraced by the majority. When in truth, they only become popular because they are pounded at us by the media with such an intensity and high level of repetition that its mere force disguises lies and truths.

And like obedient schoolchildren, we do not question their validity and swallow everything. Why?. Because since the earliest days of our youth, we have been conditioned to accept that the direction of the herd, and that authority anywhere, is always right.

Be critical in your thinking whenever presented with mass thinking by mass media and the like-minded people who are quick to accept and propagate information that isn’t, or can’t be, verified.

The only thing anyone can really know for sure is that you can’t really know anything for sure, if you’re lucky, you can get half the truth.



US Dollar is Doomed – David Morgan

By Greg Hunter’s (Saturday Night Post) (Updated)

Economic analyst and financial writer David Morgan went against the majority of financial gurus and predicted at the end of 2022 that there was no way the Fed was going to cut interest rates. He was 100% correct! Now, Morgan is, once again, going against the majority and doubling down on that prediction. 

One big reason the Fed is not about to lower interest rates is the news this week that United Arab Emirates (UAE) is cutting back on using the US dollar settling in oil trades or dropping it altogether in some oil settlements with other BRICS counties.   

Morgan explains, “The US of A has lost its day in the sun.  The US dollar is not only further in its demise on a longer-term basis, but it is being less and less trusted over the globe. 

When things do reset . . . the clout the US dollar enjoyed is no longer there.  

I am afraid that is the trend established by UAE saying we do not want to settle in US dollars for oil. . . . This is huge.”

Less demand for dollars means it will be harder to roll over the huge debt the US has for cheap Treasury rates.  Morgan says, “Interest rates will have to go up to get more suckers to buy our debt. . . .If the world runs on dollars, and they don’t want to use the dollar anymore, it means the dollar is doomed.”

This brings us to the run to gold that Morgan says has already started.  Morgan points out, “There is a run to gold . . . and I can prove it.  You have never seen this amount of gold buying in 2022, and it’s carried into 2023 by central banks.  What’s the old adage?  He who has the gold makes the rules.  Central banks have been buying gold at a rate that has not been seen in five decades.  So, that shows you the run to gold has begun.  This is the smart money moving into gold.”

Morgan sees gold making a new floor at $2,000 per ounce.  Morgan also sees gold going up to $2,500 by the end of 2024 and even higher if things really go wrong for the US dollar.  Morgan also thinks that silver will follow gold up and not lead this time around as it usually does.  Morgan says silver could hit $50 per ounce by the end of 2024 if things get really ugly for the US dollar.

There is much more in the 36-minute interview.

Breitling  The inflation for Iraq is artificial inflation.  You go back and look, How many customers did Iraq have back in the day?  How much oil were they selling?  What was the value of the currency back in those days?  $3.22 value.  How many customers do they have today?  They have way more customers.  They have more production.  The price per barrel is more than in those days when it [the dinar] was $3.22.  It’s not a market bearing inflation, it’s artificial inflation.  They have more customers.  They have a bigger reserve than they’ve ever had.  One of the biggest in the world for the US dollar.  That’s the reality that you’re looking at.  You are sitting on a gold mine. 

Militia Man  We’ve seen nothing but loans for salaries.  Why?  Because they haven’t changed the exchange rate in my view.  Projects haven’t been paid.  Why?  Because they haven’t changed the exchange rate.  Why?  Because they need specific time maybe?  I’m not really sure.  But…everything becomes cheaper once they change the exchange rate.  Do they have a time frame for it?  Of course they must…Alaq said they’re done commercially with the dollar on the 1st of next month.  We’re going to have to be cautious and wise and pay close attention.
