Very true. That is the banker's trick. The USA has had several central banks -- central banking is the use of debt-backed paper money for currency, as opposed to gold or silver certificates. The US opted for a central bank during times of war because there is never enough money to wage a war when you need it. The problem is that the bank ultimately dictates to the government what it can and cannot have. Who is the boss now?

Fevered dreams indeed! FDR christened debt-spending as the New Deal, and stretched the federal jurisdiction over the entire USA (instead of just DC). The interstate highway system and railways brought DC to every corner of the nation. This is a direct copy of Hitler's acts in Germany with the same results. These variants of socialism / authoritarianism are the real corruption to freedom, independence, and self-determination. How to enslave a nation? Take over the money supply and its issuance. Do you know that income taxes were a requirement of the Federal Reserve in exchange for the 'privilege' of using THEIR currency in order to pay the interest on OUR debt to them for its issuance? All money has become an indicator of debt -- the more money in circulation, the more in debt the country is in -- wealth is simply an accumulation of others' debts. But the govt can print up 1 trillion dollars with the flick of a pen and purchase armies and weapons to subdue anyone that resists -- and that is exactly what they do.

    With the acquiescence of the Supreme Court, the nation's monetary system was comprehensively commandeered by private bankers in excess of a century ago, who have rendered it a debt based, unconstitutional travesty.

    A question, who benefits? Beijing Biden (the traitor  that lying dog faced pony soldier) Paid up-front for Russian oil to the U.S., approved the Russian pipeline all while, drastically reducing the U.S.A.'s energy independence. While We The People suffer under a Weimar Republic type repeat, Beijing Biden is selling off "Strategic Oil Reserves" to China. 4 S.W.I.F.T. banks were cut off in Russia so Russia can not pay its debts in time of war while, the Chinese equivalent to S.W.I.F.T.   C.I.B.S. is handling Russian money transfer needs. "Who benefits" the ANSWER !  the banks (individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, "the laws of nature and of nature's God, justice, peace, prosperity, etc. the LOSS! ! !).

    Biden is too senile to pull this off.  Obviously, this is global in nature, and quite frankly everything is proceeding along nicely for the Great Reset and the subjugation of the Western world by communists.  Europe is all in, the British commonwealths are all in, the Green New Deal is in full swing. It turns out, Russia funded 40% of the anti-fracking efforts in the USA  not to protect the climate but to corner the market.  Europe closed their natural gas production and shuttered nuclear power plants.  Of course all solar panels are made in China, and the rare Earth materials for batteries are increasingly under Chinese control.

    Nothing to see here, folks.
