Good News, Bad News, and a Great Lesson
Some thoughts on today’s news & follow-ups on news from Russia & Canada. Published 2/16/22
The good news is that the chicken hawks in Washington looked like fools today when Russia did not invade Ukraine. In fact, Russia decided to pull back its troops presence from near the Ukrainian border.
“In a fiery statement on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova poured scorn on weeks of reports and claims from US and European officials that Moscow’s armed forces could be just hours away from launching a strike against its neighbor.
‘15 February 2022 will go down in history as the day Western war propaganda failed,’ she wrote. According to her, the West has been ‘shamed and destroyed without firing a single shot.’
At the same time, Moscow’s Ministry of Defense announced that a number of Russian troops had finished their training exercises in Belarus, close to the Ukrainian border, and will begin the process of withdrawing.”
Although people did believe this invasion was going to happen and that war was imminent, this is something we should all be happy to be wrong about. After all, Russia has been saying this whole time they do not want a war, many foreign policy experts have pointed out Russia has nothing to gain from invading Ukraine.
The bad news is that the New World Order has started to utilize financial tyranny against the trucker convoy in Canada.
From Global News:
“Canada’s banking industry says it will follow through with the federal government’s emergency orders targeting the trucker protesters as discussions on how best to implement them continue.
The government published details late Tuesday on the requirements covering a wide range of the financial industry including banks, credit unions, insurance companies, portfolio managers and investment counseling services.
The Canadian Bankers Association said in a statement Wednesday that, as with other financial service providers, banks will ‘need to diligently implement the required measures.’…
The emergency orders direct financial institutions to suspend services to both individual and business clients who they suspect are aiding the blockades.
They also require the institutions to conduct due diligence to identify accounts linked to the protests, and to disclose to the RCMP or CSIS any property or transactions they have identified as owned or controlled by those designated people.
Banks have been given protection from civil liabilities for actions done in following the orders.
Cryptocurrency platforms are also covered by the order and some, including Toronto-based BitBuy, say they’ve already received guidance on cryptocurrency addresses from law enforcement.”
Remember when companies like PayPal made an example of those associated with Alt-Right and cut them off from their services? Well, the Canadian government is now basically allowing the banks to do the same to their own citizens. Monitoring of your financial transactions, inhibiting your ability to engage in digital commerce, along with federal targeting of cryptocurrencies is something many have warned about. We are seeing steps being taken by the Federal government in America to make this happen with the Biden Administration’s recent stated goal of regulating cryptocurrencies and the Federal Reserve push for its own Central Bank Digital Currency. This would mean the punishment being administered by the Canadian government through the banks onto the trucker convoy could soon be utilized against the American people by our own government and banks.
This is a good reminder that financial freedom is just as important freedom as any. The best way to secure financial freedom is by having power in your dollar. It does not look like that is happening anytime soon with the US Dollar, since the Fed just loves to print and print. While nothing majorly bad has seemed to happen to cryptos yet, they had a recent drop in value recently that was quite big, they are also quite volatile. Perhaps those still holding on to cryptos should take the hints being given to them by both the government and market, and buy precious metals like gold and silver with their crypto as something to use as a store of value and or potential medium of exchange instead. Historically, when precious metals have been used as a currency, the people have the most power behind their dollar, as well as an abundance of peace and prosperity.
With how crazy things have been these last 2 years, there has been a constant worry that the US Dollar is on the verge of crashing. Match this up with the recent uproar in the West, along with how much trouble the elites are trying to stir up in the East these days, there is no telling when we might be using something else as a currency instead of the US Dollar. Good news or bad news, we should always learn from history. So in this case maybe we should start to educate ourselves on precious metals as money more, and make the shift towards them.
