Judging by the increasingly angry voices I hear every morning on the 7:00 AM C-SPAN call-in, it certainly appears that something has to give wayin the near future. Also, among various friends and acquaintances--some of whom probably regarded me as some kind of Cassandra during the past five years or so--I'm hearing anger and frustration that far outdoesmy own.
Last year around this time the national debt was running around $9 trillion, which we thought was insane. Several days ago, it topped the $12 trillion mark, and yesterday Steny Hoyer was quoted as stating that the debt limit will have to beraised before the end of this year by $1.8 trillion--this on top of the current authorization of $12.1 trillion--in other words, $13.9 trillion (that's a lot of money, even if you HAVE money).
About the only way this could ever be retired would be bycancelling just about every Federal program, plus simultaneously doubling income taxes, both of which are equivalent to political suicide (it ain't gonna happen).
What was that saying (Si vis pacem, para bellum) about keeping the peace by preparing for war?
Since the 1860ís the USA has been held together by an Iron fist normally covered by a velvet glove. Today a rotting velvet glove is covering a rusting iron fist. What the Russian intelligence reports would indicate is that some one in government is worried. They are getting afraid that they wonít be able to pay all their bills without creating hyperinflation that would make the money sent to the Zionist and the financial industry worthless, so what gets paid, the money to the Zionist and for the Zionist wars, the money for the bankers bonuses, or the minority welfare (protection money so minorities donít riot). The minorities would be the first in that group scarified and the big lies would fall away as the minorities rioted and rebelled that would be the last remnants of the rotting velvet glove falling off exposing the rusting iron fist. The problem with a rusting iron fist is that it can only be used a few times to put out brush fires before it shatters.
When the rusting iron fist shatters so shall the USA. The empire will crumble from within as large chucks break off and form independent free nations. The question is not if this will happen but when will the triggering event happen. It could be tomorrow or a hundred years from now or anywhere in between, but it will happen sooner or later and when it does The U.S. Empire will fall.
A good analysis, Michael. Thank you!
