    An interesting stat given in this vid is that an ounce of gold has tracked oil since oil extraction began in the mid 1800s. Ponder this when hearing the pronouncements of peak oil all around. Luke Gromen, btw, is a world-ranking financial analyst.

    What he says is an echo of the Pozsar prediction. Simplified, it is that commodity-producing nations, specifically in oil, cannot continue receiving devaluing fiat currencies in exchange for their products. To do so will render them ultimately bankrupt. Therefore they must take payment in a money that is durable, retains value, and had no counterparty risk. This is gold.

    This necessity has become so clear to them that they are willing to suffer war in order to construct and usher in a monetary system that accomplishes a meaningful payment system.

    We are witnessing this bifurcation of the world’s monetary order in real time. The Ukraine represents a fault line between the Keynesian West and the new global south (another term for BRICS + countries). However Ukraine an ancillary component of this, not a direct one.

    It will be interesting to see how Canada reacts to this new reality. (In fact it is not new at all and has been in the works for years.) Dear Leader rid the country of its gold reserves as one of his priorities after seizing power. What will he do when Canada, an oil producing nation, watches on as competing nations get real money for their energy while Canada continues to accept fiat IOUs?

    Another interesting country to watch is Hungary, another country directly on the fault line of this great divide. Historically it has always been in this geopolitical morass, and it is in the middle of it like never before. It understands very well what is at stake:

    At least ten guards and four inmates are dead after a riot at one of the most notorious facilities in Mexico on Sunday.
    At least 24 inmates have also escaped and are on the loose.

    The incident began when gunmen arrived in armored vehicles and attacked the Cereso state prison in Ciudad Juarez — which is an infamously dangerous city right across the border from El Paso, Texas.

    The assault on the facility began around 7 a.m. when the gunmen arrived and began firing on the guards, according to the Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office.

    An incoming Democrat congresswoman is married to a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient who could face deportation if the DREAM Act doesn’t pass through Congress next term.
    The newly elected politician, Delia Ramirez, 39, is a US citizen — but her new husband, Boris Hernandez, came to the country illegally when he was 14-years-old.

    Now, once she is in Congress, Ramirez plans to use her position to fight to keep her husband in the country.

    “I’m going to be fighting to keep my husband here and I’m a member of Congress. …. What happens to the other 2 million undocumented immigrants that the DREAM Act would protect? What happens to his brother? What happens to my best friend from high school? What happens to all of them who have no pathway, who don’t have a citizen husband or wife or partner?” Ramirez asked during a press conference at the US Capitol in December, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

  5. McCarthy Still Lacks Votes to Win Speakership – At Least Eight Conservatives Claim the House Requires “a Radical Departure of the Status Quo” – Vote Is Tuesday

    As of yesterday, McCarthy did not have enough votes to become Speaker of the House of Representatives.

    Kevin McCarthy was former Speaker Paul Ryan’s pick to lead the House Republicans after Paul Ryan abruptly left Congress. He now is in the position of running for Speaker of the House following the GOP’s win in the November midterm election. However, his actions while in leadership are too much for many conservatives to support him as Speaker.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz from Florida doesn’t believe that McCarthy, based on his record, is who is needed as Speaker

    Last night FOX News reported that some Republicans believe McCarthy as Speaker would “continue past and ongoing Republican failures”.

    McCarthy needs 218 votes to become Speaker. This House has 222 Republicans in it.

    U.S. immigration authorities finally have a win to report after they detained and deported an extremely dangerous leader of a Peruvian criminal gang last week.

    On Thursday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) reported the removal of Giovani Danti Gamarra-Puertas, the 63-year-old founder of Peru’s Los Destructores criminal gang.

    According to a government press release, the Los Destructores is “a Peruvian criminal group known for committing abductions.”

    ICE took Gamarra-Puertas into custody after U.S. Border Patrol agents stopped him at the border near Calexico, California, in June 2022, the statement added.

    Border Patrol said Gamarra-Puertas was attempting to avoid an arrest warrant in his home country and trying to evade prosecution by sneaking into the U.S.

    A large number of illegal immigrants coupled with activists marched their way from Sacred Heart Church in Segundo Barrio, Texas all the way to the El Paso County Courthouse.

    Many of the illegal immigrants who were interviewed by KXAN Austin claim they are protesting over living in inhumane conditions.

    Others told the news outlet they are protesting over the Supreme Court ruling of Title 42.

    Advertisement – story continues below

    Two men gathered at the protest went as far as tying themselves to crosses and had the heading Title 42 above their heads.

    In December, the Supreme Court blocked the Biden admin’s plans to lift Title 42.

    Title 42 was originally made into law during WWII to maintain public health and safety in the country.

    It gives the federal government the liberty to prevent the spread of diseases by limiting migration and immigration.

    More recently, Trump used title 42 to stop mass immigration into the United States in order to preserve public health.

  10. FEBRUARY 03 2023 – Ukraine-EU Summit to Be Held in Kiev

    The next Ukraine-EU summit will take place in Kyiv on February 3, 2023, not in Brussels, as was supposed.

    As the statement of the President’s Office reads, the decision was based on the phone conversation between Volodymyr Zelensky and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

    “The parties discussed expected results of the next Ukraine-EU summit to be held on February 3 in Kyiv and agreed to intensify preparatory work,” the statement reads.

    According to the Association Agreement, the Ukraine-EU summit is an annual event. The previous one, the 23rd summit, took place in October 2021 in Kyiv.

    The 2022 summit was planned for December and was supposed to be in Brussels. The Ukrainian side preliminary announced its holding. However, it was decided to postpone the summit to early 2023.

    According to the sources of “European Pravda,” among the reasons for the postponement was the lack of real results of such a meeting. The EU side had problems until the last moment, even approving the macro-financial aid promised within the G7 framework worth 18 billion euros.

    Earlier, the press office of the President of the European Council, Charles Michel Barend Leits, reported that the Ukraine-EU summit would be held in Brussels, and Volodymyr Zelenskyy received his invitation.

    ================================
    After Call With Zelensky, Von Der Leyen Says EU Stands By Ukraine ‘For As Long As It Takes’

    European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has reiterated the European Union’s emphatic support for Ukrainians “for as long as it takes” to thwart Russia’s 10-month-old invasion, noting that she’d had her first call of the new year with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

    “I conveyed my wholehearted support and best wishes for 2023 to the Ukrainian people,” von der Leyen wrote on Twitter on January 2. “The EU stands by you, for as long as it takes.”

    In a statement following the call, Zelenskiy said Ukraine was expecting to receive the first 2023 tranche of EU macrofinancial aid this month.

    “We feel support & will win together,” he wrote on Twitter.

    Von der Leyen has made multiple visits to Kyiv since tens of thousands of Russian troops poured across the Ukrainian border from Russia and Belarus in late February 2022 in the largest foreign invasion in Europe since World War II.

    The attack has met with staunch Ukrainian defense of its territory and unprecedented international sanctions on Moscow and Russians.

    “We support your heroic struggle,” von der Leyen wrote, describing it as a “fight for freedom and against brutal aggression.”

    She cited continued “strong financial assistance” to Ukraine and said distribution of an 18-billion-euro support package would start “soon.”

    She also said humanitarian efforts this winter would include “generators, light bulbs, shelters, [and] school buses.”

    Von der Leyen said she looked forward to meeting Zelenskiy again “in Ukraine soon.”

    Many people view cruising alone down the open road as the ultimate form of freedom. We regret to inform you that liberty will completely evaporate soon unless Congress acts.

    The website Motorious reported on Friday that former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr has been sounding the alarm on a terrifying item buried within the Biden-McConnell “infrastructure” legislation, which passed in August 2021. According to Barr, the government will now have the power to shut off your vehicle if they determine you are partaking in any “illegal” activity.

    Does anyone really believe the Biden Regime will not abuse this newly obtained power? Of course, they will! Particularly if such power can effectively target those opposed to the Regime’s agenda.

    Better not be driving a gas-guzzling vehicle. The Regime might think you are a conservative and leave you stranded in the middle of a highway.

    German youth in migrant-heavy neighborhoods once again turned Berlin and other German cities into war zones on New Year’s Day, but this year, news reports indicate that attacks were especially brutal and targeted rescue services, including ambulance workers.

    In Berlin, police and firefighters responded to 3,943 incidents, with 15 firefighters and 18 police officers injured. According to Bild newspaper, there were “particularly bad attacks in the hotspot neighborhoods of Kreuzberg and Neukölln with a high proportion of migrants.”

    “There were dozens of attacks,” says Interior Senator Iris Spranger, of the Social Democrats (SPD).

    In Kreuzberg, for example, after young men set fire to barricades, firefighters who arrived to extinguish the fire were attacked by 200 hooded men. In Neukölln, which is one of the most multicultural neighborhoods in Germany, 50 perpetrators fired rockets at emergency force services.

    In one disturbing scene, a group of men were filmed attacking an ambulance, hurling objects inside the vehicle’s open rear doors

    On New Year’s Eve, Kari Lake filed a petition in the Arizona Supreme Court to transfer her election lawsuit directly to the State Supreme Court.

    Katie Hobbs is set to take office this week after her narrow and highly questionable election win.

    Lake argues that Katie Hobbs’ swearing-in ceremony on January 2nd and the “electoral chaos” that targeted and disenfranchised Republican voters in Maricopa County on Election Day justify an immediate decision from the Arizona Supreme Court and a new election.

    The filing cites “evidence put forward in this case, including the changing and conflicting testimony of Maricopa officials, and sworn testimony by whistleblowers employed by Maricopa,” to show that Maricopa County failed to verify mail-in ballot signatures, failed to keep chain of custody for 300,000 ballots, and caused massive “chaos” on election day causing tabulators to reject tens of thousands of ballots, disproportionally targeting Republican voters.

    Katie Hobbs was sworn into office at a private ceremony on the Ninth Floor of the Arizona Capitol Executive Tower on Monday after a narrow and highly questionable election win.

    As The Gateway Pundit reported, Kari Lake is still fighting in her lawsuit to overturn the election or hold a new one.

    Peter Thompson dismissed the lawsuit on Christmas Eve, despite the evidence of massive voter disenfranchisement targeting Republicans and obviously false testimony by County Elections officials. Lake filed a Petition for Special Action last week in the Arizona Court of Appeals, arguing the trial court dismissed “explosive findings.”

    2020
    Joe Biden won a record low number of counties in the United States by an alleged “winner” in 2020 – winning only 17% of the counties in the US.
    Biden won fewer counties than Barack Obama in his 2008 record-setting election.

    President Trump won 2496 counties in 2020, Joe Biden on 477.

    Trump won 84% of America, Biden “won” 16%.

    Cultural Husbandry posted this amazing graphic on Wednesday.

    From his tweet: From 1984 through 2016, spanning presidential elections, seventeen US counties in several states ad voted for the winning presidential candidate in an astounding 148 of 153 times including 100% five times for five different presidents:

    1984 Reagan
    1996 Clinton
    2000 Bush
    2012 Obama
    2016 Trump

    In 2020, amid widespread accusations of Democrat cheating, these bellwethers were not even close — checking in at a mind-blowing 6%!
    Only 1 of 17 bellwether counties went for Biden this year!

    And get this…
    Of the 17 bellwether counties — the margin of win by President Trump was 16 points on average!

    Trump won Ohio, Florida and Iowa handily something EVERY winning candidate has accomplished since 1960.

    ”Nationally, preliminary numbers indicated that 26 percent of Trump’s voting share came from nonwhite voters — the highest percentage for a GOP presidential candidate since 1960.

    And President Trump made “sizeable” gains with large populations of Latinos and residents of Asian descent, including ones with the highest numbers of immigrants.

    As The Gateway Pundit reported there was also evidence – confirmed by The Gateway Pundit – of an extensive ballot trafficking network used by Democrats to stuff the ballot boxes.

    The Gateway Pundit also obtained exclusive video of late-night ballot drops in Detroit of tens of thousands of mysterious ballots after the ballots inside the center had already been counted.

    One Year Ago Today Gateway Pundit Reported on a Late Night Ballot Dump at TCF Center in Detroit – Liberal Media Said It Was Fake News – So We Proved it with Video

    In 2022 in Arizona – Katie Hobbs refused to campaign and refused to debate popular Republican Kari Lake.

    On election day 61% of precincts had machines crash and stop working. Republican voters were turned away.

    Republicans had 72% of the turnout that day while Democrats had 17% of the turnout.

    But the counting after the election favored Democrats – an impossibility.

    Beyond ALL ODDS Democrats reportedly had amazing success in the 2020 and 2022 elections.

    We can go on-and-on about these impossible facts, figures, and likely criminal events that took place in the last two elections.

    The mainstream media NEVER covered any of these facts. The elite media TRULY is the enemy of the people today.

    The media elites want you to believe that it is completely normal for a party to win more seats when the economy is the worst 40 years, gas prices are the highest ever, the stock-band markets had their worst losses since 1871, foreign policy is a disaster, and we have a president who gropes children.

    But that is not an excuse for the American public to be oblivious to the facts at hand.

    It certainly does not excuse Republicans from living in a “bubble” where they still trust election results. They live in a paradigm where they can not see that Democrats are cheating, and cheating big!

    If this trend continues America will look like any other banana republic in a few short years. Democrats are already silencing their detractors and jailing Trump supporters for standing outside the US Capitol on January 6th.

    There is no excuse for blindness when you have two functioning eyes.

    On Sunday Dade Phelan, the Republican Speaker of the Texas House, posted an attack on President Trump, blaming Trump for the 2022 losses.

    What did Dade Phelan do with his time the last 9 months? Was he hitting the campaign trail across America, spending his time and money to support Republican candidates?

    And, more importantly, is Dade Phelan with the Republican Party in believing there was no voter fraud in the 2020 or 2022?

    At some point these ignorant people must be called out. Our country is dying and it’s not because of Trump or our candidates.

      The former British diplomat obviously lacks a decent education in history. The Soviet missiles in Cuba… were a counter threat to what the U.S. had done [in Greece and Turkey].

      When the Kennedy administration recognized that, it negotiated the removal of its missiles… in exchange for the removal of the Soviet missiles in Cuba…. The Soviets… won that round of the Cold War, not the U.S.…

      To convince Russia to retreat, says the author, the ‘west’ should not restrain itself in weapon deliveries to Ukraine. It should increase sanctions on Russia to increase its costs. It should communicate that a retreat from Ukraine would not mean regime change in Moscow. (Even when that in fact is the obvious U.S. endgame.)

      …As soon as it becomes obvious to everyone that the Ukraine is losing the war, the Biden administration is likely to deliver more long range weapons to Ukraine with the advice to use them within Russia. Russia will respond to that. But most likely not in Ukraine, but in a place and at a time where it hurts the U.S. more than anything that can be done to it in Ukraine.

      I do not believe they’re this ignorant. They’re willfully blind, believing they’re so far above the fray they can afford an existential gamble. They’re drunk on power; their thirst for more can never be quenched.

      Their complaints about Putin’s “threats” are pure projection. They’re not constrained by logic; reality is flexible, subjective.

      This is the predicate for a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia. That’s where this is going.

  17. BIG: New Book By Ex-Capitol Police Chief Confirms GOP’s Report On Pelosi’s Culpability for Jan. 6, Reveals FBI, DHS, And His Own Agency KNEW FOR WEEKS About Planned Attack

    The Gateway Pundit reported Friday that House Republicans discovered how Pelosi’s staffers deliberately weakened security at the U.S. Capitol for Jan.6 and ordered a cover-up. Steven A. Sund, the Capitol Police chief on that fateful day, not only confirms her culpability along with the rest of the Democratic leadership, but also how his own agency and the intelligence community let the Capitol attack happen.

    The Washington Post acquired an advance copy of Sund’s book “Courage Under Fire,” which will be released on Tuesday. He unveils his perspective on what happened, who he most blames (not Donald Trump), and why America still remains vulnerable to a similar attack.

    Sund also reminds America that Pelosi utilized him as a scapegoat and forced him to step down as Police chief. We all know now she was just trying to obfuscate her own responsibility for the attack.

    From the Post:

    “The FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and even his own agency’s intelligence unit had been alerted weeks earlier to reams of chilling chatter about right-wing extremists arming for an attack on the Capitol that day, Sund says, but didn’t take the basic steps to assess those plots or sound an alarm. Senior military leaders, citing political or tactical worries, delayed sending help.”

    Sund said he was never warned about those red flags the FBI, DHS and his own intelligence unit had received: plots for protesters to come armed, attack Capitol tunnels and be willing to shoot police.

    “Three days before Jan. 6, in anticipation of large crowds, Sund had asked that the National Guard be placed on standby. But his request was batted down by the two sergeants-at-arms hired by Senate and House leaders; Sund says he later learned the two believed that Pelosi would never allow it.”

    “Sund resigned a day after the riot when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) publicly called for him to step down over the department’s inability to secure the Capitol.”

    Sund writes that senior leaders in his department failed, too: The “biggest intelligence failure was within my department,” he wrote.

    “Starting on Dec. 21 and continuing to Jan. 5, the Capitol Police intelligence division had received emails and tips that carried frightening warnings about plots for Jan. 6. Intelligence collected on Dec. 21 revealed that prospective rallygoers were discussing how to coordinate an attack using the Capitol’s underground tunnel system, and attaching a map of the complex. They urged burning down the homes of Pelosi and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).”

    “Sund reserves his greatest outrage for those Pentagon leaders, recounting a conference call he had with two generals about 2:35 p.m., 20 minutes after rioters had broken into the Capitol and as Vice President Mike Pence and other lawmakers scurried to hiding places.”

    “Sund writes that Lt. Gen. Walter Piatt told him he didn’t like the optics of sending uniformed Guard troops to the Capitol but could allow them to replace police officers at roadside checkpoints. Listening incredulously and trying to explain that he needed help to save officers’ lives, Sund said, he felt both “nauseated” and “mad as hell.”

    “He warns that many flaws in his agency’s power structure — in which congressional leaders’ political concerns can overrule the chief’s security judgments — remain.”

    “He recommends that congressional leaders empower future Capitol Police chiefs to execute their own security plans alone, rather than having to report to a three-member Capitol Police Board made up of the House and Senate sergeants-at-arms and the architect of the Capitol, a cumbersome structure that he says makes it impossible for the chief to act independently.”

    To wrap this all up, not only did the Democrats and the Deep State blow multiple opportunities to prevent the January 6th riot, but the Capitol is still no safer than before. An incredible dereliction of duty that should never be forgiven nor forgotten.

    Instead of conducting a real investigation and rectifying the security failures, Democrats along with RINO quislings Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger put together a kangaroo court against their number one enemy, Donald Trump. Of course, a true investigation means Pelosi and her party would have to accept responsibility so they needed a distraction.

    The Gateway Pundit, House Republicans, and Trump were all correct on the real truth behind the January 6th riot. The only question remaining is did the Democrats, the Deep State, and even Sund’s own department actually want the attack to occur.

  18. EXCLUSIVE: Justice Department is concealing 400 pages of ‘sensitive documents’ laying bare payoffs and gifts to Hunter and Jim Biden from China, Russia and Ukraine – after acknowledging the papers exist – lawyer claims in suit

    The Department of Justice is trying to prevent disclosure of 400 pages of sensitive documents on Hunter and Jim Biden’s dealings with China, Russia and Ukraine – by pretending they don’t exist.

    Colorado lawyer Kevin Evans sued the department in March after it failed to comply with his request for records on the Bidens’ dealings under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA

    Evans, a FOIA expert, asked for documents pertaining to ‘any relationship, communication, gift(s), and/or remuneration in any form’ between the president’s son Hunter or brother Jim, and China, Russia or Ukraine.

    He said government lawyers first admitted in court to having at least 400 pages of ‘potentially relevant’ documents – but are now trying to get away with saying they can ‘neither confirm nor deny’ the existence of any records that match his request.

  19. TREASON: Gen. Mark Milley Hid Nuke Codes from Trump While Holding Secret Calls with China – Then Armed Taliban with $80 Billion in US Weapons

    According to the book “Peril” written by Bob Woodward, General Mark Milley, the Joint Chiefs chairman, told China in a secret phone call that he would give advance warning if the US was ever going to attack.

    “In a pair of secret phone calls (Oct. 20 and Jan. 8), Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the PLA, that the U.S. would not strike, according to the new book written by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political editor Robert Costa.

    On January 8, 2021, the same day Milley reportedly spoke to China in a secret phone call, CNN ran a story claiming Pelosi had gotten assurances from Milley there are safeguards in place in the event President Trump wants to launch a nuclear weapon.

    According to Fox News, 15 people were present when Milley called China on teleconference in October 2020, which was coordinated with then-Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s office (Trump eventually fired Esper).

    CBS’s “60 Minutes” welcomed the new year with a doomsday message from Paul Ehrlich, a well known eugenicist who has called for population control due to ‘limited resources’ on planet earth.

    Paul Ehrlich has been virtually wrong about everything over the last 6 decades.

    Advertisement – story continues below

    Ehrlich called for population control in the 60s in his book “The Population Bomb” because he believed widespread famines would kill off hundreds of millions of people.

    “The next few decades will be the end of the kind of civilization we’re used to,” Ehrlich said.

    60 Minutes” gave Ehrlich a platform to spew more lies.
