It is painfully obvious that the government is whittling away at the middle class with high inflation and the world is nudging the United States with threats about dropping the dollar. The de-dollarization is part of the plan to collapse the world economy in favor of a New World Order. If those countries stop accepting the US dollar in trade, how will we get what we need? This will inevitably hasten the collapse of the old world system, a failure of economies and political structures that are already underway, paving the way for the great and terrible Beast system. Transition is going to be hard on most Americans who have not prepared for this global crash — no one will understand the repercussions the day the dollar dies. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with economic and financial analyst, Alan Johnson about THE DAY YOUR DOLLAR DIED.






At 11:20 am Wednesday morning, as announced, my phone loudly sent me a disturbing emergency tone telling me that they were testing the emergency alert system.

It was jarring and annoying, even though I was aware that it was coming.

People were joking sending out texts wondering if their friends and neighbors were having a ravenous craving for brains –as intel agencies were spreading a crazy conspiracy theory that the signal would somehow trigger metal fragments in the bloodstream, from the vaccine, and trigger people into becoming zombies.

That too was annoying — because it actually takes the wind out of what these tests actually mean.

The convergence of multiple red-alert warnings all staring us in the face, all pointing to a major “event” of some type in the not-too-distant future.

I know that the Emergency tests that are being carried out are practice runs for what can be called the continuity of government if in fact there is a collapse of infrastructure.

These emergency tests are being carried out by FEMA –whose job is to set up government and guarantee the continuity of government during a national crisis so great the government can no longer function or is partially functioning due to a major catastrophic blow to the processes we count on.

Russia had its readiness test at around the same time. This may fit into the view that tensions and war on each side is actually snowballing.

The US and Russian governments get to fearmonger their own public to maintain their positions of privilege and control. The threats of US-Russia clashing regarding Ukraine are highly functional in memory holing the derangement regarding pandemic policies and mass propaganda.

We are definitely seeing that we as a country are in a state of emergency where our leaders have a seeming overriding desire to escape from constitutional norms, standard discourse and democratic processes.

The government seems to be preparing for something that they know is going to happen –where there will be a “Great taking” of rights, liberties and even wealth.

They are already trying to whittle away the middle class with high inflation and the world is nudging the United States with threats about dropping the Dollar.

Of course, people are skeptical, believing that the dollar will always hold strong, even though we are seeing more inflation than the 7% they claim is plaguing consumers.

W are still hemorrhaging money with the war in Ukraine.

It is obvious that America is in trouble and we do not need to be handing Ukraine tens of billions of dollars from American taxpayers for a war that is not ours.

Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, who led the effort to oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, offered multiple reasons why he felt McCarthy needed to go.

In an exchange with reporters before the historic vote to remove McCarthy, Gaetz said the die was cast following his motion to vacate the chair. He accused McCarthy of breaking multiple House rules he had agreed to when he became speaker in January.

The most recent instances came when McCarthy partnered with Democrats to push through a continuing resolution that averted a federal shutdown by funding the government through the middle of November.

Gaetz said that McCarthy violated the 72-hour rule regarding reviewing proposed legislation before a vote, and he also suspended a rule that would have allowed members to offer amendments to the CR.

Gaetz then said to reporters ” So he seems to be reverting to the very unfortunate muscle memory of Washington, D.C., that has put our nation atop a $33 trillion debt, that has led to $2 trillion annual deficits in our near future and the rapid global de-dollarization of the economy.”

He then let it all out about the global de-dollarization of our economy.

“You look at the BRICS system — Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa — they’re moving away from the dollar. And just in August, they added six new countries, including G20 economies in the Western Hemisphere and Persian Gulf monarchies,”

He added that the Number 1 economic trend of 2023 is de-dollarization globally.

Well, this was out of the blue and I am sure that many people question what Gaetz knows and what Washington isn’t telling us about how fragile the economic House of Cards is.

His remarks appear to validate the warnings that have been given about how the de-dollarization is part of the plan to collapse the world economy in favor of a New World Order.

The US Dollar is collapsing and will be rejected by nations worldwide as a means of trade.

That would utterly cripple the United States since we don’t manufacture much of anything here anymore; we import most of it from other countries.

If those countries stop accepting the US dollar in trade, how will we get what we need?

Transition is going to be hard on most Americans who have not prepared for this global crash — no one will understand the repercussions the day the Dollar dies.

This will inevitably hasten the collapse of the old world system, a failure of economies and political structures that is already underway, paving the way for the great and terrible Beast system.

They say that you will own nothing and be happy — but think about it if you own nothing — there will have to be a “Great taking ” of things you worked hard for — and of course, most of that is tied up in your savings, and how you are going to feed and maintain the things you need for your family and your lifestyle.

Predicting the timing of such an event is impossible — but watching the deterioration of our way of life in America is evident.

The billionaire globalist technocrats desire to bring about a situation that involves the digitization of money and human beings, the dehumanization of humans replaced by transhuman hybrids, the destruction of all cultural norms, male/female genders, the ability to reproduce without technology, and depopulation(of those deemed “useless eaters”.

In the eyes of the globalist predator class, they’re reaching for their utopia, but for the rest of us, it will be a living hell, a dystopia.

These globalist predators were only able to destroy so much of the old world order with COVID-19 and so they need another big crisis event to finish the job of achieving all their dystopian goals, which are encompassed in the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. They’ve played language games, reminiscent of Orwellian newspeak– and now they have a symbol to remind you that they are the Beast with 7 heads and ten horns– it adds up to a terrible prophecy fulfilled — 7+10 = 17– the 17 globalist sustainability goals.

It appears that war is not enough to depopulate the planet–they are now resorting to starving people and making it hard for people to even survive with what little they have.

I know that inflation is very high and for the first time in a long while I had to dip into my savings to pay for emergencies and repairs, which put a huge dent in my budget — and food expenses and expenses for travel took their toll as well.

Price inflation in the U.S. hasn’t been this high since the 1980s.

In the US, around 30 million low-income people are on the edge of a ‘hunger cliff’ as a portion of their federal food assistance is taken away. In 2021, it was estimated that one in eight children were going hungry in the US. Small businesses are filing for bankruptcy in the US at a record rate.

BlackRock President Rob Kapito warned that a “very entitled” generation of people would soon have to face shortages for the first time in their lives as some goods grow scarce because of rising inflation.

In 2022, the unimaginably rich and entitled Kapito said that a “very entitled” generation of (ordinary working) people who have never had to sacrifice would soon have to face shortages for the first time in their lives.

Again we are talking about an elite rich businessman telling us that we are entitled just because we want to be able to afford the basics.

Kapito said ““For the first time, this generation is going to go into a store and not be able to get what they want,” he went on to say “We have a very entitled generation that has never had to sacrifice.”

Look at that– another elitist blowhard telling us that we do not deserve simple things that we have worked hard for.

Without stating exactly which generation he was referring to, Kapito said that many people who had always had everything available to them at the supermarket would soon face “scarcity inflation.”

Of course, Kapito is another Billionaire who benefited from Covid. His tentacles are in major arms, energy, pharmaceuticals and food companies, whose mega-rich owners continue to rake in massive profits.

How are we to feel about a privileged Billionaire telling us to get used to poverty and the ‘new normal’ as if we are ‘all in it together’ – billionaires and working class alike? They conveniently use COVID and the situation in Ukraine as cover for the collapsing economic disaster.

But this is part of the sustainable goals agenda that seeks to ensure that the establishment’s worldview is the accepted cultural norm. And anyone who challenges this worldview – whether it involves, for instance, questioning climate alarmism, the ‘new normal’, the nature of the economic crisis, the mainstream COVID narrative or the official stance on Ukraine and Russia – is regarded as a spreader of misinformation and the ‘enemy within’.

If the globalists continue to pressure their minions in national and state capitols to enact their green new deals and “net zero” campaigns, the masses will eventually wake up and come for these globalists.

We hope that that awakening has already begun.

This could be why it is urgent that the global fascists escalate a full-blown World War III scenario, which includes famine and shortages, as soon as they possibly can.

Those caught off guard by what is coming will find themselves completely dependent on exactly the wrong people for their survival. They will be at the mercy of the globalist cartel. Since this is a predator class of psychopaths, you do not want to be dependent on them for anything.

The economic crisis is making many people poorer, so they must be controlled, monitored and subjugated.

The collapsing financial system is resulting in an interrelated global debt, inflation and ‘austerity’ crisis and the biggest transfer of wealth to the rich in history.

Deagel Corp., which has ties to the CIA, predicted in 2014 that the U.S. would lose 68.5 percent of its population by the end of 2025; the U.K. would lose over 75 percent and most Western European nations would also lose 30 to 50 percent.

It appears that this may happen due to starvation, and the fact that most people are ill-prepared or are unable to set aside rainy day funds, or even set aside food and medicine when all things collapse and the day the dollar dies.

It appears with all of the emergency tests and drills, that there will soon be a major war in our future. They are at least acclimating us to the possibility — but on top of this transitional process comes a lot of other woes that we should address now while we still have the resources to do so.

The byproducts of war include growing inflation and de-dollarization, shortages of food, fuel and basic medications, and an intensifying assault on all forms of free of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of movement, assembly, the Second Amendment– you need to understand that there is no organization save the charities organized by religious groups that are going to save you.

Food charities and other organized groups have met their limits and so it is up to you to decide what is important and whether or not it is important to plan ahead and have a contingency in place.

Have a Plan B in case it all falls apart.

A quick fix at the voting booth is not even feasible anymore — and counting on the dollar and your ability to get ahead is slowly becoming more of an uphill climb, that is exhausting the most fiscally fit.

    Transactional gold (a Texas legislative initiative) will go a l-o-n-g way in throwing a domestic monkey wrench into the CBDC/Fed machinery. Gold becomes transactional by states issuing it by debit card as “legal tender” to purchasers, under our US Constitution! Can be converted to-and-from fiat dollars without any capital gains involvement. Interstate commerce clause considerations are also not present. Effectively, we would be back on the physical/digital “gold” standard.

    Credit card companies are not part of processing these “already paid” e-transactions.

    Note how many nations have and are stockpiling physical gold? May well end up as ultimate basis for backing all blockchain based digital currency, once secured authentically genuine anonymity is ensconced: think “white stone” not BlackRock, for further revelation.

    We have a treaty with Ukraine to defend their borders and sovereignty dating to 1994, for them giving up all of their nuclear weapons; giving them back to Russia, who are also cosignees of said treaty, along with Germany and Great Britain.
    Earlier this week, I think Monday, October 2, 2023, NEWSMAX reported that the total we spent on defending Ukraine is 113 billion dollars.
    Earlier thiscevening, I read that the Social Security COLA, was expected to be 3.2 percent.

    Those few things Matt Geats mentioned, although helpful, are not,/ don’t seem to be the be all end all to all of this country’s fiscal problems.

    Sounds just like the way you hate on Ukraine and Ukrainians; a country and people who did nothing to deserve what Putin and Russia are doing to them.

    Matt Gaets worked with, got the votes of all of the Democrats; talk about the, ” uniparty.”
    According to Mark Levin, this is the first time in his seven years in the United States House of Representitives, that Matt Gaets has said or done anything about the national debt, or deficit spending.

    Sarge: I agree Sarge, Colton Carney do you much when you’re hungry and thirsty and when the world goes down. Peoples gonna be in a world of hurt. They don’t know the old ways.! I have lead bars and buckets of lead wheel weights. I can melt them down and make bullets with them with my molds.. I think they’ll come in more handy and gold bars. I ain’t no financial wizard I invested in a small farm I have about 60 fruit trees black raspberries, and grapes I rigged up an old well with a hand pump when when the grid grows down, I’ll still have plenty of water. I think people should move out of the city by a piece of ground plant, not trees, fruit trees for the garden, then do some canning learn how to dr dry food and hunt and fish. My mom and dad grew up during the depression of the 30s. They taught me a lot about saving things and bad times people traded food for work or bartered traded tomatoes for beans helped each other out a lot. I’d sooner invest in some traps and primers and gun powder. You can reload your own shells.. I live next to the Amish Dutch in western Pennsylvania. They don’t even have running water in your house or electricity or computers, and they get by in a pretty happy people. I hunt with them and trade with them. I learned a lot from them also. One of these days all these cell phones and computers are going to crash that’s for sure. And a lot of people are going to be lost. My advice for the Young people is buy some land, get out of the city plant fruit trees try to live a simple life. Take care every day above ground a good day.
