Ret. Col Macgregor: We’re Seeing End of Dollar-Based Global Economy

“I think we’re seeing the end of the dollar-based global economy,” Macgregor said. “We’ve weaponized the global monetary system that we largely dominant and control. Now India, China, Iran, many others countries, not just Russia, people in Latin America are beginning to say why should we do business with these Americans? Why do we have to do business with the dollar? So dollar-denominated business is very much at risk.”

“But we are lagging a little bit behind as you point out with the Europeans. But the same crises are coming in our direction. When food, fuel, and medicine become either too expensive or scarce things begin to fall apart and this government has no answers. Here’s the bad news. The probable successors to this government and the United States and the governments of Europe they also don’t have answers. These problems run deep,” he said.

Russia and China Officially Announced a “New Global Reserve Currency”

China and Russia are taking their shot at the U.S. dollar. And as often happens with consequential news in the United States and the West, no one seems to notice or even care.

Since the beginning of the year, I have been writing about the possibility of Russia and China challenging the US dollar’s global reserve status. Now, it’s happening.

It shouldn’t be any surprise to those paying attention that Russia and China are strengthening their economic ties amidst continued Western sanctions on Russia as a result of the country’s war in Ukraine.

What may surprise some people, however, is that Russia and the BRICS countries, including Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, are officially working on their own “new global reserve currency,” RT reported in late June. Nobody even seemed to notice.

“The issue of creating an international reserve currency based on a basket of currencies of our countries is being worked out,” Vladimir Putin said at the BRICS business forum last month.

And of course, as Russia has been cut off from the SWIFT system, it is also pairing with China and the BRIC nations to develop “reliable alternative mechanisms for international payments” in order to “cut reliance on the Western financial system.”

Trump Blasts Biden Over Soaring Prices, Says True Inflation Rate is “Much, Much Higher” Than 9.1%

Authored by Tom Ozimek via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours)

Former President Donald Trump seared President Joe Biden over his handling of the inflationary wave hammering American households, telling rally-goers in Arizona, that the true rate of inflation is far higher than the official rate of 9.1 percent.

Trump made the remarks at a Friday rally in Prescott Valley, where the former president was stumping on behalf of former TV anchor Kari Lake in her bid to become Arizona’s next governor in the upcoming GOP primary election.

During his speech, Trump touted his own record on the economy, including high job creation and low inflation.

An Insane Number of Teachers Have Been Arrested for Sex Crimes This Year

The freak shows have entered the classroom. This latest story goes beyond the critical race theory shenanigans infecting our schools. Pronouns and political correctness aren’t the subjects, either. All are important regarding cleaning up our schools and reverting them to institutions of learning and instruction. They’ve become ‘woke’ reeducation camps. No, this latest report is something out of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. We have sexual deviants and freaks roaming our halls. In the first half of this year, over 180 school educators got arrested for various sex crimes. That’s roughly one teacher or school administrator arrested each day.

Bears Looking at Leaving Downtown Chicago Despite $2.2 Billion Promise From Mayor

The NFL’s historic Chicago Bears franchise is considering moving from their longtime home stadium of Soldier Field, despite the best efforts of city Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

Soldier Field has been home to the Bears for over 50 years and is the oldest in the NFL, but that may be soon to change. Last year, the team’s ownership reached an agreement on a 326-acre site in the much safer Chicago suburbs. The Bears’ purchase is now pending, with a number of “logistical, financial, and legal loops both sides” need to figure out, reports The Guardian.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Refusing to Pay Speeding, Red Light Tickets as They Pile Up: Report

Multiple police-driven vehicles used to transport Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot have reportedly racked up multiple traffic tickets that have gone unpaid despite the mayor’s advocacy for stricter speed cameras in the city.

Two of the SUVs used to shuttle Lightfoot throughout Chicago have accumulated three speed camera tickets and two warnings in the past month. The tickets have so far gone unpaid, CWB Chicago reported on Monday.

Additionally, CWB Chicago reported that one of the SUVs in the mayor’s fleet has a red light ticket that has not been paid and two SUVs that were previously assigned to Lightfoot’s security detail have outstanding speed and red light tickets.

Community Urges Uvalde Council to Suspend All City Cops Who Reported to School Massacre

Council passed resolution urging governor, Legislature to hold special session.

Family members of Uvalde school district students have called on the city council to suspend all city police officers who were on the scene during the May 24 massacre at Robb Elementary School.

During a council meeting Tuesday night, victims’ families and community members said they wanted all officers who responded that day to be held responsible for the bungled police response that left 19 students and two teachers dead.

Brett Cross, father of Uziyah Garcia, who was killed in the massacre, pointed to a police officer in the audience, saying he was a responding officer to Robb. “That ain’t right… until the investigation is done, they should be on administrative leave,” he said.

Diana Olvedo-Karau echoed the sentiment, asking for “administrative leave, at a minimum” and suggested putting the officers on desk duty as an alternative until the investigation concludes. “I don’t think that’s a lot to ask,” she said…

Democrats Boycott Hulu After Streaming Service Refuses to Run Attack Ads Against GOP

Hulu became the latest target of cancel culture on Tuesday when Democratic organizations launched a boycott after the streaming service refused to run their attack ads against Republican lawmakers’ track record on abortion, guns, and the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Despite Hulu’s corporate parent company Disney’s strict policy of not allowing political ads to run on their platform beginning in late 2022, it didn’t stop Democratic officials from slamming the streaming service to the point that hashtag #BoycottHulu was trending in a top spot on Twitter in the US on Tuesday.

FBI Sabotaged Hunter Biden Evidence to Derail Investigation: Whistleblowers

Several FBI whistleblowers say that the agency’s probe into Hunter Biden was internally sabotaged during the 2020 election in order to derail the investigation, after agents wrongfully deemed verified evidence as “disinformation” to ignore.

According to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), agents investigating Hunter “opened an assessment which was used by an FBI headquarters team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease,” adding that his office received “a significant number of protected communications from highly credible whistleblowers” regarding the investigation.

Grassley added that “verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation,” according to the Washington Examiner.

Jan 6 Trespasser Commits Suicide After MAGA Snitch Turns Him in for Petty Reason

47-year-old Pennsylvania man Mark Aungst and his “co-defendant” Tammy Bronsburg were convicted on misdemeanor charges of “parading” in a restricted building by the DOJ after briefly entering the US Capitol building on January 6th, 2021…

Assistant U.S. Attorney Mona Furst said the prosecution had evidence showing Aungst and Bronsburg entering the Capitol through the Senate fire door by the parliamentarian’s office approximately 2:45 p.m. and leaving 30 seconds later. Twenty minutes later they re-entered the building through the Senate wing door, and took photos and videos on their cell phones,” media has reported, citing court documents, regarding Aungst’s non-violent actions on January 6th.

Furthermore, when Capitol Police asked Aungst and Bronsburg to leave the building, they complied, returning to the bus they’d ridden to Washington on to get back home to Pennsylvania, court records show…

Reportedly, he was only arrested after another demonstrator who rode on the bus with him to Washington became angry that his trip to the Capitol had delayed their return home, and reported him to the FBI. He was slated to be sentenced on September 27th and faced 6 months in prison, as well as up to a $5,000 fine.

On Wednesday, July 20th, Mark Aungst, of South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, was found dead. After an examination by the local coroner, his death was ruled a suicide, making him at least the second January 6th defendant to kill himself after facing the DOJ and having his life as he knew it largely destroyed. A skilled tradesman who worked as a gas field well service technician, he leaves behind his daughter, his mother, and three siblings.

New Yorkers React to the Elite’s Sustainable Bug Diet

The fact that the ruling class wants to replace nutritious meat and other animal proteins with insects has been deemed as conspiracy theory as recently as last year.

But for the past few months, the elite and their obedient friends in the media have been pushing the idea of replacing supposedly dirty unsustainable meat with bugs, crickets and mealworms.

The World Economic Forum, the thought leaders of the globalist agenda, has recently gone into overdrive pushing the bugs as food narrative. The WEF explains that eating insects can reduce climate change and that insects “deserve a role” in our diets.

Principal of Uvalde Elementary School Suspended in Wake of Deadly Shooting

Mandy Gutierrez put on administrative leave, as 77-page report details multiple failures from police and other Texas officials

The principal of the elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where an intruder shot dead 19 students and two teachers in May, has been suspended from her job.

Mandy Gutierrez of Robb elementary school was put on paid administrative leave on Monday, her attorney Ricardo Cedillo said in a statement to the Associated Press.

The Uvalde school district superintendent made the decision to place Gutierrez on leave, Cedillo said.

Gutierrez had worked in the Uvalde school district for more than two decades and was finishing her first year as principal when the killings there occurred, according to a preliminary investigative report released on 17 July by the Texas state legislature.

Cedillo did not provide any details on why Gutierrez was suspended.

The decision against Gutierrez is only the latest against an official in the wake of the report’s release.

After initially being put on paid leave as the report was being prepared, the Uvalde school district police chief, Pete Arredondo, saw his pay halted on Friday, five days after the report’s release.

The school board had called a meeting on Saturday to consider Arredondo’s firing but ultimately postponed it, citing “due process requirements” and a request from Arredondo’s attorney.

The 77-page report from the state legislature’s special investigative committee laid responsibility at Gutierrez and a school assistant for knowing that the lock on a classroom in which the massacre took place was not working but not getting it fixed…

1,000+ Meet in Vaughan Mills, Ontario, To Support Dutch Farmers

And with good reason. As you may know, we recently dispatched Lewis Brackpool and Lincoln Jay to the Netherlands to get the real story in terms of what the Dutch government is doing to its own farmers there. Of note, you are not going to get the straight goods from the mainstream media; indeed, we didn’t see any mainstream media scribes covering the Vaughan Mills event for reasons that elude us.

How bizarre. Everyone needs to eat, after all. So why is it that the Dutch government under Prime Minister Mark Rutte has declared war on nitrogen in the name of climate change? Especially given that nitrogen is a much-needed element when it comes to, you know, growing crops. And if the government succeeds in its plans, multi-generational farms will likely go out of business — apparently in the name of virtue-signalling. Little wonder that furious farmers and their supporters literally took to the streets to protest these crackpot agricultural plans.

If you are a regular viewer of this show, or indeed of our YouTube channel, you will recognize this video.

That is from the very early days of the pandemic, you can see it was still snowing in spring of 2020 in Calgary. Police came upon Pastor Artur Pawlowski, doing what he has done for decades, actually — feeding the hungry in Calgary, and not just any hungry. There are soup kitchens, and homeless shelters, but these are the lowliest of the low, who in some cases aren’t even allowed into homeless shelters.

It was a cold day, he was feeding them, when these cops came up to Artur and his team, physically pushed them, gave them a massive ticket and claimed they were engaging in an illegal gathering. And thus began a series of abusive vendettas, really, that led to more than 16 arrests of Artur and his brother Dawid.

EU Countries Reach Agreement on 15% Coordinated Demand Reduction for Next Winter

Following Russian state-owned energy producer Gazprom PJSC’s decision to reduce natural gas flows to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, European Union countries agreed on a 15% demand cut through next winter as the probabilities of reaching 80% NatGas storage filling target dwindle, reported Bloomberg.

EU energy ministers convened in Brussels on Tuesday and gave the ‘thumbs up’ to a proposal to voluntarily cut their NatGas demand over the coming months, the Czech presidency of the EU tweeted. Under an emergency, such as Gazprom reducing NatGas flows to zero, the plan states EU countries will have to reduce demand by 15%.

“The EU stands together — agreement on a 15% coordinated demand reduction regulation in only 1 week ! — reducing our gas consumption by 45 bcm is the best move to react to Putin’s gasblackmail — only Hungary voted against,” Luxembourg’s energy minister Claude Turmes tweeted.

Energy ministers of the EU27 met in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss a regulation that would order member states to reduce their gas consumption by 15 percent.

All nations except Hungary are understood to have agreed on the proposal, and Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjartó confirmed his country will vote against plans that he claimed would seriously harm the continent’s competitiveness and put European jobs at risk by restricting energy use.

China Tried to Build Spy Network Inside the Fed, Threatened to Kidnap Fed Economist

China tried to place “a network of informants inside the Federal Reserve system” over the course of a decade, according to a stunning new article out this morning from the Wall Street Journal.

Over 10 years, Fed employees were offered contracts with Chinese talent recruitment programs, often including cash payments, in exchange for providing information on the U.S. economy and interest rate changes, according to an investigation by Republican staff members of the Senate’s Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

The country even threatened to imprison a Fed economist on a trip to Shanghai as apart of their efforts. The economist was detained in 2019, the report says. WSJ notes that it is unclear whether any “sensitive information was compromised”, though we’re not sure exactly how “sensitive” Fed information is to begin with.

Watch: Antifa Protester Found Guilty of Assaulting Avi Yemini

A self-proclaimed ‘anti-fascist’ has been found guilty and placed on a six-month good behaviour bond for assaulting Avi Yemini at a left-wing protest in early 2020.

The news comes just mere weeks after Victoria Police issued a grovelling apology for arresting the Rebel News reporter at multiple Melbourne protests.

In a promising sign that police may have turned over a new leaf and will start punishing those breaking the law, not the reporters doing their job, Yemini received notification directly from the force’s Public Order Response letting him know about the verdict.

The offender, Tristan Silk, approached Yemini from behind at a protest on January 10 and splashed a bottle of water over his head directly in front of a group of police.

Orban: Future Hungary Will Take Christian Refugees From Multiculti West, Then Shut Border

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has predicted that the next generation in his country will have to accommodate Christian refugees fleeing multicultural Western Europe, before ultimately shutting their border to it.

In a wide-ranging and highly-charged speech to an annual summer camp in an area of Romania with a large Hungarian minority, a transcript of which has been seen by Breitbart London, Prime Minister Orban compared his government’s struggle to hold back mass migration from, in particular, the world of “Islamic civilisation”, to Hungary’s resistance to Turkish invaders at the Siege of Belgrade/Nandorfehérvar in the 1400s, or Charles Martel’s defeat of an Arab invasion force at Poitiers in 732.

    Got monkeypox after pride sex with several men – blames “the system”

    Published 25 July 2022in Fria Tider

    Sebastian Kohn is from Sweden and works as a public health expert for George Soros in New York. Now he talks about how he contracted monkeypox after having sex with a number of different men during Pride in New York.

    In an article in Britain’s The Guardian, Sebastian Kohn, 39, writes that the “system” is not capable of dealing with a smallpox epidemic.

    He describes his own experience of being infected. This happened during Pride events in New York at the end of June.

    “I had sex with several guys over the weekend. A week later, on July 1, I started to feel very tired. I had a high fever with chills and muscle aches, and my lymph nodes were so swollen that they were sticking out two centimetres from my neck,” he writes.

    Sebastian Kohn describes himself in the article as “a 39-year-old man from Sweden who lives in Brooklyn and works in philanthropy”. Specifically, he works as a public health expert and director of the New York chapter of leftist billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

    In the Guardian article, Kohn describes in great detail the rashes and other symptoms he suffered. Free Times chooses not to reproduce them for the sake of its readers. In the end, it turned out that he had been infected with both monkeypox and gonorrhoea.

    Iin any case, the 39-year-old is highly critical of the way the authorities in the US have handled the monkeypox outbreak.

    “The whole thing feels ~like a huge failure that should not have happened, especially two and a half months after the outbreak. If someone like me, who has worked in sexual health for a long time, had such a difficult time navigating the healthcare system, I can’t imagine others succeeding. I know several people who are just sitting at home in excruciating pain because they are not getting the support they need,” Kohn writes, continuing:

    “I am quite concerned that we are close to reaching the point where this becomes yet another endemic disease, especially among gay men, if we haven’t already passed that point. I’m worried that we’re going to be stuck with this forever.”

    WHO: Monkeypox an international emergency

    The World Health Organization, WHO, has decided to classify the outbreak of monkeypox as an international health emergency, reports SVT News.

    This is the organization’s most serious warning – only the coronavirus and polio currently have the same classification.

    Monkeypox, originally a tropical disease from monkeys in Africa, is currently spreading among practicing gay men in Europe.

    – The WHO assessment indicates that the risk of monkeypox is moderate in all regions of the world except Europe, where we consider the risk to be high,” says WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus.

    According to the WHO, the classification will help in the development of vaccines and open the way for action against the spread of the disease.

    However, Ghebreyesus stresses the need to protect the “health, human rights and dignity” of those infected.

    – Stigma and discrimination can be as dangerous as any virus,” says Ghebreyesus.

    In Sweden, monkeypox is classified as a public health disease. There are therefore infection control measures in place, such as testing, infection tracing and rules of conduct. Sweden also has a limited number of doses of vaccine that can be given against monkeypox to people who have been exposed.

    – There is an ongoing spread of the disease in Sweden, but the number of cases is limited compared to other parts of Europe. In Sweden, almost all the measures recommended by the WHO for the group of countries with a similar situation to Sweden are already in place, but the Public Health Agency is reviewing whether additional measures may be necessary,” says Lisa Brouwers, Acting Director-General of the Public Health Agency.
