Syrian Conflict Is A Distraction From A Secret War

Back in March 2010 I published an article titled ‘Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War?’ under the pen name Giordano Bruno describing what I felt would be the most effective triggers for a new global conflict. In that article I pointed to Syria as the primary powder keg, followed in close second by Iran and Yemen. This was written well before the Syrian civil war was engineered by establishment interests. I focused on potential false flags that could be used as a rationale by the U.S. or Israel to invade the region, thereby giving Russia and China reason to retaliate, for the most part economically. Ultimately, this scenario would play out perfectly as a cover for the deliberate collapse of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency.

In August 2012 I reiterated my concerns in an article titled Syria And Iran Dominoes Lead To World War, right after the Syrian civil war began to gain momentum.

Needless to say, I have not changed my general thesis since those days; however, I would like to touch upon certain factors now that the dangers I examined in those articles are mostly coming to pass in 2018.

First, no hard evidence has been produced by western intelligence agencies to support the claim that Bashar Al Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. None. Therefore, there is no basis for the latest missile attacks on the regime. This same exact false flag tactic was attempted under the Obama administration to draw the U.S. people into open war in Syria, and it failed. Now the chemical weapon card is being played again, this time with a “conservative” president. The establishment must be hoping that Republicans will find excitement in becoming the war party so long after the Bush years.

As I queried the last time a chemical false flag was attempted, what exactly does Assad have to gain by initiating a chemical attack against innocent civilians when he has the tactical momentum and upper hand in the civil war?  The answer is nothing. The only people that have anything to gain by asserting such an attack, either real or fabricated, are people seeking to create chaos for their own benefit.

The insinuation of neocon warmonger John Bolton into the Trump cabinet suggests that the neocons are very much back in charge and that ongoing war is guaranteed. At this late stage in the game, it is unlikely that our government or any other government involved in the Syrian theater even cares to explain its actions. When establishment criminals no longer care if their criminality is transparent to the public, THEN it is time for a large scale societal collapse.

Second, each successive Trump involved theater, from the trade tariffs to international war tensions, has become progressively more dramatic, and I believe this is meant to hide the effects of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet cuts and interest rate hikes. The real and secret war being waged is not against Syria or Syria’s allies, but against the American people and our economic stability.

In January of this year, I warned that central banks were preparing to enter into an accelerating process to deflate the massive market bubbles they created to prop up our fiscal system over the past several years. That process is indeed continuing, and each successive rate hike and balance sheet cut will act in a cumulative fashion. Meaning, central bankers are treating the global economy like an oversized Jenga tower, pulling blocks here and there until the system topples completely from lack of stability.

This latest event in Syria is yet another grand gesture of illusion, designed to provide cover for the banking cabal as they pull the plug on financial life support. It also is timed rather conveniently for the Fed’s next policy meeting on May 1-2. The meeting is likely to include yet another interest rate hike as well as a large reduction in the balance sheet, resulting in another sizable plunge in stocks. All negative moves in our manipulated markets will now be blamed on Trump administration activities as well as blamed on trade retaliations by eastern nations. The mainstream media will no longer discuss the reality that central banks are the true cause behind a systemic breakdown.

Third, the current pattern of events suggest there will be a joint economic retaliation by Russia and China. China has publicly admonished the U.S. government for its strike in Syria, and this is merely added to the increasing tensions over trade tariffs by Trump. Again, this is a perfect opportunity to undermine the U.S. economy, primarily through China and Russia initiating a dump of the dollar as the world reserve currency.

The dump of the dollar has already begun in a semi-covert fashion. China’s currency has been inducted into the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights basket system, and China has also launched the first international oil exchange that does not use the dollar as the petro-currency. What many people are ignoring is the fact that the shift away from the dollar is being championed and helped along by the globalists at the IMF itself.

An impending change in the global monetary framework is often referred to as the great “global economic reset” by IMF members like Christine Lagarde. This change will be facilitated by central banks as they sabotage their respective national economies through the creation and destruction of market bubbles. Ultimately, it will not be the Chinese Yuan that replaces the dollar as world reserve currency, but the SDR basket system, controlled by the IMF.

The question of how this can be done by the globalists without an unprecedented liquidity crisis often comes up. I’m not so sure they care if there is a liquidity crisis, at least for a short time. Yes, the U.S. dollar has some of the most liquid markets in the world, but it is wrong to assume the globalists will not sacrifice those markets in order to force the public into accepting one world centralization of monetary administration (the biggest and most important step in establishing global government).

People who argue that the dollar will never be demolished by the globalists cling to the false notion that there is no liquidity replacement for the dollar. In reality, there is a replacement — cyrptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

The IMF has recently applauded blockchain systems and crypto as a potential rejuvenating force in international money transactions. Far from being opposed to cryptocurrencies, global elitists have been piling into them with praise and with investment dollars.

The global economic reset is not about East versus West. It is not about trade wars and nationalism. No, the global reset is about banker centralization of assets and consolidation of power. Beyond that, it is about the public ACCEPTING the reset as necessary and “good” for society. Globalists want us to beg for their rule. When one understands this simple truth, all the current events and disasters of our era begin to make sense. Crisis is the quickest path to complacency and tyranny.

The Syrian quagmire is a path to engineered and guided calamity. Its effects will continue to leach into the economic world as an international excuse for a trade war tit-for-tat. Syria is a smoke and mirrors game.

The true war, a secret war, is being fought between liberty champions and lying globalists. For now it remains a cold war, a battle of principles and facts versus disinformation and fear. One day this war will become a hot one. Until that time, distractions will assail the public like a hailstorm. My hope is that we can educate enough people to see through the fog of this hidden war; enough people to come out the other side and change things for the better.

    okay MIC, powers-that-be, shadow puppet masters – I call your bluff. Bring it on. Unleash the dogs of war. Let’s rumble. For once it begins, I promise you, I or men just like me are going to find your lot and terminate your worthless greedy lives. You shall inherit the earth all right. About 6’d x 6’l x 3’w of it each one of you.

  2. The more competition that the government-controlled Gazprom faces in gas and oil sales to Western Europe, the less revenue for Russia and the less dependence on Russian oil and gas supplies for Western Europe. The more gas and oil China buys from Russia, the more China becomes the senior, controlling partner of Russia-China commerce.

  3. fullmoonrizing says:

    I think this article sums it all up pretty well.

    I’m really afraid that bad times are getting ready to get a lot worse. I’m not really sure if any of us can truly prepare for what may happen.

  4. Faux Liberte says:

    “Butter-side up vs. Butter-side down.” Dr. Seuss was trying to teach our children, (meaning us), a lesson. Apparently it’s message went unnoticed.

  5. Kevin2 says:

    If the USD loses reserve currency status and the US can no longer dilute its money creation out of thin air into a pool that is global the huge military budgets will come to and end. MIC loses funds and TPTB lose their global enforcer. The world, especially in the economic areas is very complex. To get any sort of understanding of it I look at who wins, who loses and what is the trickle down effect of an action. I therefore believe that TPTB have a vested interest in expanding the USDs reserve currency status. This is not to say that events cannot alter it but what we now have works greatly in their interest.

  6. The taking of Syria and Iran for greater Isrealhell is real.

    Yes the international bankers (Rothschilds et all) are behind this as usual.
    And yes, they are simultaneously destroying our cash.

    This plan is the Balfour Declaration on steroids and opioids: “Dear Mr. Rothschilds”…(you can steal the land from those numskulls in the land between the Nile and Euphrates, just get those idiot Americans to come over here and help us kill their extended family here in Europe, ps send some of them kneegrows, after the war we’re going to rape millions of the survivors).

    (Yours truly-an Englishman)


  7. It’s probably true that international bankers are behind much of the mayhem and chaos simply as a funding vehicle.

    Where I disagree is when it is said that they are trying to crash the system on purpose. They live off the system by usury and fees on debt issuance. Why would they shoot themselves in the foot by derailing their gravy train.

    Look at total worldwide debt. 200+ trillion and rising. They collect usury and fees on all this debt. They have the world where they want it right now. A free ride.

    That’s why everything from PMs to LIBOR to Fed Fund rate is rigged to benefit the banks. That’s why they control the issuance of money and not the governments.

    No, I would say they are doing everything they can to keep the system rolling along.

  8. Bert says:

    There is no such thing as a reserve currency.

    The world currencies are like 25 different brands of pop being sold out of the same machine, doesn’t matter what the name of the currency is, they are all the same.

  9. Patriot One says:

    It’s still about the pipeline..if the pipeline to Europe goes in Russia loses its grip on Europe. Competition is a real bitch for monopolies.

  10. Hunter says:

    no one is going to do a damn thing about anything, but just sit and wait to die.

  11. David Parker says:

    The only interest rate the “Federal Reserve System” (Fed) controls is the rate of interest paid to bank deposits of “excess reserves” with the Fed. The bankers get a guaranteed rate of return from the Fed.
    That interest paid to the bank would otherwise be paid to the US Treasury.
    It is our loss.
    However, the interest you pay on a mortgage or a car or a business loan, etc., is set by the lender you use.
    That rate of interest has nothing whatever to do with the Fed.
    This is not to say that the Fed, a private cabal Congress has allowed to do its job, Article I, Section 8:
    “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures; To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States”,
    should not be immediately abolished along with its paper currency.
