Dollar Decline Versus Dollar Collapse Why a Dollar Decline Is Inevitable, While a Collapse Is Unimaginable

ARTICLE TABLE OF CONTENTSSkip to section

The U.S. dollar declines when the dollar’s value is lower compared to other currencies in the foreign exchange market. It means the dollar index falls. It also means the euro to dollar conversion is higher because euros get stronger and can buy more dollars when the U.S. currency weakens. It could also threaten the yen carry trade because a weaker dollar often means a stronger yen.

A declining dollar can also mean a fall in the value of U.S. Treasurys. This drives up Treasury yields and interest rates. Treasury note yields are the main driver of mortgage rates. It can mean that foreign central banks and sovereign wealth funds are holding fewer dollars too. This lowers the demand for dollars.

Effects

A weaker dollar buys less in foreign goods. This increases the price of imports, contributing to inflation. As the dollar weakens, investors in the benchmark 10-year Treasury and other bonds sell their dollar-denominated holdings.

Oil and other foreign contracts are denominated in dollars. A weaker dollar will drive up their prices because the exporting countries need to maintain their profit margins. The value of the dollar is one of the three factors that determine oil prices.

On the plus side, a weakening dollar helps U.S. exports. Their goods will seem cheaper to foreigners. This boosts the United States’ economic growth, which attracts foreign investors to U.S. stocks. But, if enough investors leave the dollar for other currencies, it could cause a dollar collapse.

Causes

On July 1, 2014, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act required foreign banks and other financial institutions to disclose information regarding income and assets held by U.S. customers. Its goal is to root out wealthy U.S. taxpayers who are hiding money offshore on purpose.

It also wants to stop foreign banks from using tax evasion as a profitable line of business. Many were worried foreign banks will drop U.S. customers, to avoid compliance, thereby pushing them away from dollar-denominated assets.

On October 16, 2013, China allowed British investors to pour $13.1 billion into its tightly restricted capital markets. This made London the first trading hub for the yuan outside of Asia. This is one way China is trying to encourage central banks to increase their holdings of the Chinese yuan. It is the biggest potential threat to the value of the dollar. China would like the yuan to replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Since then, China has been devaluing the yuan against the dollar. It is doing so because the world’s third-largest economy is worried its economy’s growth is too slow. But the trouble is China would strengthen, not weaken, the dollar because the Chinese central bank buys dollars to keep it strong and the yuan weak. As a result, China has a large influence on the U.S. dollar.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note hit its lowest point in 200 years on June 7, 2012. It indicated dollar strength as measured by Treasurys. China’s currency, the yuan, rose to 6.4167 against the dollar, a 17-year high, on August 10, 2011. It showed further dollar weakness as a result of the debt ceiling crisis.

Background

The dollar declined 40% between 2002 and 2008. This was in part because of the $700 billion U.S. current account deficit at the time. Over half of the current account deficit is owed to foreign countries and hedge funds.

The dollar strengthened during the recession, as investors sought a safe haven in comparison to other currencies. In March 2009, the dollar resumed its decline thanks to the now $20 trillion U.S. debt. Creditor nations, like China and Japan, worry the U.S. government won’t support the value of a dollar.

Why not? A weaker dollar means the deficit will not cost the government as much to pay back. Creditors have been changing their assets to other currencies over time to stem their losses. Many fear this could turn into a run on the dollar. That would erode the value of your U.S. investments fast and drive inflation.

Seven Steps That Will Protect You from a Declining Dollar

There are seven steps you can take to protect yourself from inflation and a dollar decline.

  1. Increase your earning potential through education and training. If you earn more each year, you can outpace a dollar decline.
  2. Invest part of your portfolio in the stock market. Even though it’s risky, the risk-adjusted returns often outpace inflation.
  3. Purchase Treasury Inflated Protected Securities and Series I Bonds from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Those are the best ways to protect yourself from inflation.
  4. Purchase euros, yen, or other currencies which will increase in value if the dollar loses its power. You can either purchase them outright at a bank or buy an exchange-traded fund which tracks their values.
    Some experts recommend short-selling stocks of companies which will be hurt by a falling dollar. But that’s not a good idea because you don’t know which companies will be hurt the most. Furthermore, you don’t know how fast the dollar will fall. If you did, you’d be better off buying foreign currency futures contracts. You could use leverage to better reward yourself for the knowledge. If the dollar outright collapses, the devastation upon the world’s economy is hard to imagine. No one knows what would happen, so you must be ready to move at a moment’s notice.
  5. Buy gold, precious metals, and shares in gold mining companies. If the dollar falls faster, prompting hyperinflation, then you would benefit.
  6. If you’re worried about it, then take this sixth step. Keep your assets liquid, so you can buy and sell as needed.
    In this scenario, you should have as little as possible in real estate, gold bullion, or other difficult-to-sell goods. Make sure you have skills that are needed everywhere, such as cooking, farming, or repairing. Get a passport, in case you need to move to another country.
  7. Make sure you have a well-diversified portfolio. Rebalance your asset allocation if it looks like the business cycle is going to shift. You can tell that by following key leading economic indicators.

Why Some Say the Dollar Could Collapse

Some say the euro could replace the dollar as an international currency. They point to the increase in euros held in foreign government reserves. Between the first quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2019, the holdings of euros almost doubled from $1.2 trillion to $2.3 trillion.

But the facts don’t support that theory. At the same time, U.S. dollar holdings more than doubled, from $2.8 trillion to $6.7 trillion. Dollar holdings are 61% of the $11 trillion of total measurable reserves. That’s only slightly less than the 63% held in Q1 2008. The International Monetary Fund provides details about foreign exchange reserves for each quarter with the COFER Table.

China is the second-largest foreign investor in dollars. As of February 2020, it held $1.09 trillion in U.S. Treasury securities. China periodically hints it will reduce its holdings if the U.S. doesn’t reduce its debt. Instead, its holdings continue to increase. The U.S. debt to China was 15% of America’s debt to foreign countries.

Japan is the largest investor with $1.27 trillion in holdings. It buys Treasurys to keep the value of the yen low, so it can export more cheaply. Its debt is now more than 200% of its gross domestic product.

Why the Dollar Won’t Collapse

Many say the dollar won’t collapse for four reasons. First, it’s backed by the U.S. government. That makes it the premier global currency. Second, it’s the universal medium of exchange. That’s thanks to its sophisticated financial markets. The third reason is that most international contracts are priced in dollars.

The fourth reason is probably the most important. The United States is the world’s best customer. It’s the largest export market for many countries. Most of those countries have either adopted the dollar as their own currency. Others peg their own currency to the dollar. As a result, they have zero incentive to switch to another currency.

Many in Congress want the dollar to decline because they believe it will help the U.S. economy. A weak dollar lowers the price of U.S. exports relative to foreign goods. Its products become more competitive. In fact, the decline in the dollar helped to improve the U.S. trade deficit in 2012.

Bottom Line

Although the dollar has declined dramatically over the last 10 years, it has not yet collapsed. It’s not in the best interest of most countries to allow this to happen. A collapse would wipe out the value of their dollar holdings.

Regardless of the outcome, be prepared. Most experts agree that the best hedge against risk is with a well-diversified investment portfolio. Ask your financial planner about including overseas funds. These are denominated in foreign currencies, which rise when the dollar falls. Focus on economies with strong domestic markets. Also, ask about commodities funds, such as gold, silver, and oil, which increase when the dollar declines.

Petrodollars and the System that Created It Will the Petrodollar Collapse?

The petrodollar is any U.S. dollar paid to oil-exporting countries in exchange for oil. The dollar is the preeminent global currency. As a result, most international transactions, including oil, are priced in dollars. Oil-exporting nations receive dollars for their exports, not their own currency.

In addition, most oil-exporting nations own their oil industries. That makes their national income dependent on the dollar’s value. If it falls, so does their government’s revenue.

As a result, most of these oil exporters also peg their currencies to the dollar. That way, if the dollar’s value falls, so does the price of all their domestic goods and services. That helps these countries avoid wide swings in inflation or deflation.

Key Takeaways

  • The 1945 U.S.-Saudi agreement created the petrodollar.
  • The purchasing power of a petrodollar relies on the value of the U.S. dollar.
  • The shift from oil to other renewable energy sources could threaten the petrodollar.

Petrodollar System

The petrodollar system is tied to the history of the gold standard. After World War II, the United States held most of the world’s supply of gold. It agreed to redeem any U.S. dollar for its value in gold if the other countries pegged their currencies to the dollar. Other countries signed onto this deal in the 1944 Bretton Woods conference. It established the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

On February 14, 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated the alliance with Saudi Arabia.1 He met with Saudi King Abd al-Aziz. The United States built an airfield at Dhahran in return for military and business training. This alliance was so critical that it survived subsequent years of differences of opinion over the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The 1945 agreement between the United States and Saudi Arabia cemented the relationship between the dollar and oil. The petrodollar was born.

In 1971, U.S. stagflation prompted runs on the dollar. Many countries asked to redeem their U.S. dollars for gold.2 To protect the remaining U.S. gold reserves, President Richard Nixon removed the dollar from the gold standard.

As a result, the value of the dollar plummeted.3 That helped the U.S. economy as its export values also decreased, making them more competitive.

A falling dollar hurt oil-exporting countries because contracts were priced in U.S. dollars. Their oil revenue dropped along with the dollar.4 The cost of imports, denominated in other currencies, increased.

In 1973, Nixon asked Congress for military aid to Israel in the Yom Kippur War.5 The newly-formed Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries halted oil exports to the United States and other Israeli allies. The OPEC oil embargo quadrupled the price of oil in six months. Prices remained high even after the embargo ended.

Petrodollar Recycling

In 1979, the United States and Saudi Arabia negotiated the United States-Saudi Arabian Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation.6 They agreed to use U.S. dollars for oil contracts. The U.S. dollars would be recycled back to America through contracts with U.S. companies. These companies improve Saudi infrastructure through technology transfer.

Oil-exporting countries use petrodollars to fund domestic consumption.

That increases imports, provides higher wages for government employees, and boosts the local economy.

The rest is used to improve the nations’ finances. They recycle their petrodollars through sovereign wealth funds. They use these funds to invest in non-oil related businesses. The profits from these businesses make them less dependent on oil prices. Here are the world’s five largest petrodollar recyclers ranked by assets:7

  1. Norway Government Pension Fund Global–$1.187 trillion
  2. U.A.E. Abu Dhabi Investment Authority–$697 billion
  3. Kuwait Investment Authority–$534 billion
  4. Saudi Arabia SAMA–$494 billion
  5. Qatar Investment Authority–$328 billion

The Coming Collapse of the Petrodollar?

The United States uses the power of petrodollars to enforce its foreign policy. But many countries don’t fight back. They are afraid it would mean the collapse of the petrodollar system.

For example, the United States sanctioned Iran for refusing to halt its development of potential nuclear weapons.8 Similarly, it hit Russia with trade embargoes for invading Crimea and creating a crisis in Ukraine.9

China called for a replacement of the U.S. dollar as a global currency.10 Ironically, it is one of the largest foreign holders of the dollar. China influences the U.S. dollar by pegging its currency, the yuan, to it.

Will these rogue attacks cause a dollar collapse? No, at least not for the near future. That is because there is no good alternative. The euro is the second-most circulated currency. It has undergone attack from within, thanks to the eurozone crisis.

There is a threat to the petrodollar as the world shifts from oil to renewable energy.

Nations are limiting greenhouse gas emissions to fight global warming. As they shift to electric vehicles and solar or wind power generation, it threatens the profitability of oil-producing nations. The United States has lost its competitive edge in these technologies to China and the European Union. As a result, the petrodollar may lose its role as the world’s dominant currency.

Help Americans get more Pandemic stimulus aid, $8K per person if this bill passes! Sign petition now!

Hi everyone, please consider signing an official White House petition to extend the stimulus program for American citizens who need more aid during these troubled times. The goal is to get enough signatures to pass this Democrat led bill crafted by Bernie Sanders, approved by Ms. Pelosi, and currently awaiting majority of Senate Republicans to pass.
100 thousand signatures will go a long way to convince these morons that they need to get on the ball and pass this bill ASAP to help the poor pay bills and put food on the table. It’s $2000/ mo. retroactive to March, $8K total for every citizen making under $100K/ year. I think it’s worth a shot. Thank you!

Orwellian Contact Tracing Program Begins in US, with Potential Mandatory Evacuation on Books

AT A GLANCE…

  • THE STORY:Operation Coronavirus continues unabated, with a US County public health official signaling the next phase: “contact tracing” and the forced removal of people from homes.
  • THE IMPLICATIONS:The sinister agenda marches on, with both mandatory evacuations and mandatory vaccinations in its sights. Will people allow this?

A community contact tracing pilot program

has been launched according to this Ventura County (California) public health official Dr. Robert Levin. In his announcement, he states that his county is beginning to go around to people’s homes and test them for the COVID-19 (the fake virus that still has never been isolated, purified and 100% proven to exist). Then, if the governmental tests (some of which have been shown to have been contaminated with coronavirus itself, and to produce over 80% false positives) find that you “have the COVID infection”, you will be further quarantined and isolated – including potentially being removed from your home! This guy is actually talking about mandatory evacuation of people – kidnapping or grabbing adults and seniors! This is in line with the ominous warning that WHO (World Health Organization) official Michael Ryan gave a over a month ago when he spoke of removing people from their families. It is also in line with what several US state governors have claimed they can do with their newly-invoked and tyrannical emergency powers. At what point are people going to say “Enough is enough”?

Hiring Contact Tracing Investigators All Over the US to Hunt Down and Remove the Infected

If someone didn’t already think we were in highly dangerous territory in terms of loss of freedom, hopefully this new announcement will arouse even the asleep, apathetic and ignorant. The new War on Bioterror is one step closer to reality. Here is a transcript of the video above:

“We are beginning a program today, and it’s a pilot program which will certainly grow into something larger and larger, and that is a community contact tracing program. We’ve done contact tracing all along. A contact is a person who has been exposed to someone who we’ve documented to have the COVID infection. When we find someone who has the COVID infection, those people are immediately isolated but we also work with them to figure out who their contacts were. Luckily because you have been doing such a great job of cooperating and staying indoors, staying isolated, it used to be there were 10 contacts at least for every patient we would find, now it looks like now there are only 2 or 3 or 4 contacts, not surprisingly, because most people have been staying away from others. And that’s good news. But the purpose of this program is to bring on people – we’re going to start with 10 people and we may bring on up to 50 people or even more as the program grows, and as we see the need for it. As we do more testing, we will find even more people who have COVID-19, and again we will isolate every one of them, and we will find every one of their contacts, and we will make sure they stay quarantined, and we will check in with them every day. In other words, what this program means is that we’re going to do a more complete job and we’re going to do a more meticulous job, of making it less and less possible for others in the county to run into someone with COVID-19 infection. There are ... it’s not just our county that’s bringing more people on. There are going to be thousands of people hired who will be these contact investigators throughout the state, and this is occurring in many many other states as well, perhaps all the states in our country. We will be giving intensive training to these people, training not only for identifying and finding contacts, but also in terms of how to be sensitive about doing it. We also realize that as we find more contacts, some of the people we find are going to have trouble being isolated. For instance, if they live in a home where there’s only 1 bathroom, and there are 3 or 4 other people living there, and those people don’t have COVID infection, we’re not going to be able to keep the person in that home … we’ll be moving people like this into other kinds of housing that we have available.”

Clinton Foundation Wants a National Contact Tracing Corps

America’s favorite crime family (next to the Bushes) – the Clintons – are also getting involved in exploiting the coronavirus crisis. What else would you expect? Bill Clinton recently spoke with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and California Governor Gavin Newsom where they discussed the idea of an “army of tracers” (Cuomo’s words) and using the AmeriCorps to become the new national contact tracing force. Clinton created AmeriCorps in 1993. Meanwhile, Congressman John Garamendi recently introduced the bill “Undertaking National Initiatives to Tackle Epidemic Act” (UNITE Act) which seeks to “expand volunteer opportunities within AmeriCorps and the Federal Emergency Management Agency” (FEMA). This article summarizes what the UNITE Act seeks to do:

Requires the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to prioritize activities related to coronavirus testing and contact tracing and to increase recruitment of AmeriCorps volunteers to 500,000 (approximately 75,000 currently serve). Additionally, it permanently sets the compensation floor for volunteers at 200 percent of the poverty level, roughly double what it is today.

Requires CNCS, in the selection of volunteers, to give priority consideration to unemployed veterans, others unemployed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and AmeriCorps volunteers and Peace Corps volunteers whose service involuntarily ended.

Authorizes the funds necessary to hire, train, and administer 10,000 additional FEMA Cadre of On-Call Response/Recovery Employees (CORE) to perform contact tracing of those infected by the coronavirus, provide logistical support for the supply chain of medical equipment, and to fulfill other disaster and public health related needs.

Directs the Peace Corps to extend health benefits for evacuated Peace Corps volunteers for six months and to waive all non-medical application requirements for reenrollment of all volunteers wishing to return to the Peace Corps service after operations of the Agency resume.

Requires the Peace Corps to report to Congress on the progress of the agency’s offer to reenroll each evacuated volunteer in the Peace Corps and expeditiously return the roughly 7,300 volunteers abroad once the suspension of Peace Corps operations ends and it is safe.

Can you imagine what would happen if these power-hungry control freaks got their way? A 500,000 strong army of tracers going door-to-door in America to hunt down the infected and forcibly remove them from their families, to isolate and re-locate them elsewhere? For me, this conjures up images of secret police of historically tyrannical regimes around the world, such as the Nazi Gestapo or SS, the Soviet NKVD, the Iranian SAVAK and the German Stasi. And it would never come to America? Think again. It’s happening right under our noses. Notice how the scam runs: they create a crisis, force people out of work, destroy small businesses, then re-hire those newly unemployed to work for the government as tracers – first making people dependent and then recruiting them to enforce the agenda.

Alarming Emergency Proclamations of US Governors

Many US states are still under a de facto, soft martial law where the US Constitution and Bill of Rights are suspended, even despite partial re-openings. For example, in Hawaii, Governor David Ige issued a 6th Emergency Proclamation on April 25th 2020. Look at some of the “laws” (not true natural law, but statutes operating under color of law) this man is trying to invoke:

“The following emergency provisions are expressly invoked, if not already in effect upon declaration of an emergency on March 4, 2020: Sections 127A-12(a)(5), 127A-13(a)(6), and 127A-13(a)(7), HRS, directing the Director of HIEMA and the administrators of each county emergency management agency to take appropriate actions to direct or control, as may be necessary for emergency management, the following:

a. Alerts, warnings, notifications, and activations;

b. Warnings and signals for alerts and any type of warning device, system, or method to be used in connection therewith;

c. Partial or full mobilization of personnel in advance of or in response to an actual emergency or disaster;

d. The conduct of civilians and the movement and cessation of movement of pedestrians and vehicular traffic during, before, and after alerts, emergencies, or disasters;

e. The shutting off of water mains, gas mains, electric power connections, or suspension of other services; and

f. Mandatory evacuation of the civilian population.

Did you catch that? Shutting off utilities to people! Mandatory evacuations! It is utterly insane. The next page has this fantastic section (where the government will seize control of materials and supplies, and decide how they will be distributed) which makes one wonder whether Hawaii has just become a communist command-and-control state:

“Section 127A-13(a)(8), HRS, to prevent the hoarding, waste, or destruction of materials, supplies, commodities, accommodations, facilities, and services to effectuate equitable distribution thereof, or to establish priorities therein; to investigate; and notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, to regulate or prohibit, by means of licensing, rationing, or otherwise, the storage, transportation, use, possession, maintenance, furnishing, sale, or distribution thereof, and any business or any transaction related thereto.”

Governor Ige, while he was busy shredding the Constitution, also decided to pave the way for mandatory vaccinations with emergency powers claiming the right to force “compulsory immunization programs” on people:

§127A-13  Additional powers in an emergency period.  (a)  In the event of a state of emergency declared by the governor pursuant to section 127A-14, the governor may exercise the following additional powers pertaining to emergency management during the emergency period:

(1)  Provide for and require the quarantine or segregation of persons who are affected with or believed to have been exposed to any infectious, communicable, or other disease that is, in the governor’s opinion, dangerous to the public health and safety, or persons who are the source of other contamination, in any case where, in the governor’s opinion, the existing laws are not adequate to assure the public health and safety; provide for the care and treatment of the persons; supplement the provisions of sections 325-32 to 325-38 concerning compulsory immunization programs; provide for the isolation or closing of property which is a source of contamination or is in a dangerous condition in any case where, in the governor’s opinion, the existing laws are not adequate to assure the public health and safety, and designate as public nuisances acts, practices, conduct, or conditions that are dangerous to the public health or safety or to property …”

Final Thoughts

James Corbett covered in this video how Orwellian the buzzphrase contact tracing even is. It’s surveillance, it’s invasive, it’s a gross violation and it’s a giant scam to separate people from their families, force vaccinate them and much more. The temperature is rising. Humanity now faces a formidable threat. The battle has arrived. Will people be able to retain freedom and sovereignty in the face of this sinister and all-encompassing NWO (New World Order) agenda? It will be a race against time to see whether people can wake up fast enough to unite and repel the dark force that is orchestrating Operation Coronavirus.

2 Fundamental Things You May Have Forgotten in the Whole Virus Crisis

AT A GLANCE…

  • THE STORY:With all the deliberate and engineered upheaval caused by COVID-19, some basic fundamentals of law, and the government-citizen relationship, have been dismantled and inverted.
  • THE IMPLICATIONS:Be aware of the propaganda efforts to trick you into accepting and allowing tyranny to flourish.

Virus crisis fundamentals

have been forgotten as people worldwide have allowed themselves to be led into the depths of fear by the MSM (Mainstream Media) and governments. For some people, I’m talking real fear here: not twilight zone or midnight zone stuff, but trench zone, deep deep down where the dark creatures live who have never ever seen the light of day. These are the people who are scared of you if you don’t wear a mask, who think you might be about to infect them. Just take a look at society right now. Humans are social creatures. Look at the amount of brainwashing, programming and propaganda that has been pumped out non-stop to get people to refrain from the basics of human life: touching, hugging, rubbing, congregating and gathering. Amidst this whole virus crisis, authorities have attacked 2 fundamental aspects of law and government that you may not have noticed.

Guilty and Infected Until Proven Innocent: Turning Hundreds of Years of this Principle of Law on its Head

Napoleonic law has been accused of holding people as “guilty until proven innocent” in contrast to common law which holds people as “innocent until proven guilty.” The many negative things to come from Operation Coronavirus – and I’m not talking about the alleged virus itself (which still has never been isolated, purified and 100% proven to exist) – include the dangerous precedents that are being set. During this fake emergency, the basis of law changed from presumed innocence to presumed guilt. I covered this concept before in an earlier article on the New War on Bioterror. It hardly needs stating that such a switch to presumed guilt as the basis of law is highly diabolical, anti-freedom and plays straight into the hands of tyrants who can use it expand control, stifle dissent and arrest political opponents.

Have you noticed the distinct lack of focus on personal responsibility in the whole conversation about the virus? Notice how the MSM has avoided mentioning the fact that each person is born with their own immune system (intrinsic protection) and about how each person is responsible for their own state of health? The government has seized control by claiming it has the duty to protect people, instead of people standing up and asserting their own duty and capacity to protect themselves. The result of this abdication of personal responsibility for one’s health has been disastrous.

Imagine a society where anyone, anywhere, anytime, could be a “suspect” that is presumed guilty due to the presence of an invisible virus in their body – a virus that authorities claim they can accurately test for and discover (which is false, since even the PCR tests used for COVID can’t diagnose, assess viral load or prove causation). What a recipe for tyranny! Using this basis of law, a governmental official could claim he has the legal power to force test you, declare you “guilty” as a symptomatic or an asymptomatic carrier and force vaccinate you for the “pubic safety” and the “greater good.” Such emergency laws are already on the books and just waiting to be invoked in many states and nations.

Yet, given this dangerous precedent and new authoritarian basis of law, how many people noticed? How many people cared? How many people objected? There is no reason why authorities cannot force this anytime they want. All they need is just the right excuse (a 2nd wave, a resurgence or even a whole new disease in a few years when people have forgotten about COVID). Operation Coronavirus is primarily a psychological operation, so this is all about making an impression in people’s minds which the NWO (New World Order) Controllers can later exploit.

Notice how the usual rights people have in the US or the West (right to a proper legal hearing, right to due process, right to a lawyer, right to trial by jury, etc.) are bypassed with emergency rules where you are presumed and found guilty without any way to defend yourself. It’s similar to the absurd notion of pre-crime: if we allow this kind of law to exist, there is no defense. You were going to commit the crime, so you are guilty. Case closed. You have tested positive for the virus, so you are guilty. Case closed. Notice the shift from a system of justice where you are judged by your peers/neighbors (trial by jury) to systems where you are judged by machines. Pre-crime is planned on being administered by robots (AI), just as this kind of “presumed guilty” law would be. If a machine detects the virus in your body, you’re guilty, and no argument will be allowed. This of course fits right in with transhumanism and the synthetic agenda. And you thought those dehumanizing mandatory masks were there to stop the virus, huh? It’s not just to make you inhale more carbon dioxide and less oxygen (thus making you less vital), it’s also to dehumanize you.

This is also a shifting of the burden of proof. The usual Western legal traditions requires that if someone wants to surveil you (contact tracing) or force vaccinate you (digital certificates), the burden of proof is on them to justify such as invasion. Now, with the manufactured COVID hysteria, this is is being spun around: you are putting others in danger if you don’t submit to surveillance and vaccination! The perversion of logic is egregious, but it’s happening. This is the propaganda: don’t you care? You could be spreading the disease to others by being overly-concerned about your rights, you selfish egocentrist!

Will humanity allow so-called authorities to label citizens as pre-crime bioterrorists? Will humanity allow tyranny to be justified by a hypothetical chain of infection? Will humanity see how the natural right to self-defense and self-protection, along with the responsibility to care for one’s self, has been inverted and perverted to make it into a (legal) obligation that you must not infect others?

Government is Only There to Protect the RIGHTS of its Citizens, not Citizens Themselves

This next point is easily overlooked and forgotten, but is supremely important. Let’s take a quote from the opening of the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …”

Notice how it explicitly states that governments are only instituted or created to secure the rights of the people. That is their mandate. They are not created to protect the health and safety of people. People are capable of looking after themselves, or if they can’t, then they can band together in families, groups, organizations and communities to do so. I will say it again, so it sinks in: it is not the government’s rightful job to protect people, but only to protect people’s rights.

The state constitution of Arizona states:

“All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.”

The exact same wording can be found in the constitution for the state of Washington:

“All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.”

If we give the government the task of protecting people, we open the door to tyranny, since any bureaucrat or official can then use the excuse of “public health and safety” to justify all sorts of egregious power grabs. This is how governments expands and becomes out-of-control.

Imagine how differently Operation Coronavirus would have unfolded if a critical mass of people told their governments during the virus crisis: “We don’t want your help to save us!”

Virus Crisis Final Thoughts

No virus or emergency cancels your inherent rights, sovereignty and freedom. Now is the time to stand strong in this knowledge, and to live and speak from this place of power. You are innocent until proven guilty regardless of whatever scheme authorities invent to invert this basic legal truth. Government only exists to protect your rights; if a government is doing something not directly related to protecting your rights, it has already overstepped its limits and exceeded its authority. The NWO controllers have pulled off a master stroke by fabricating the idea of a killer virus. Not only has the virus crisis induced panic, OCD behavior and fear, it has also opened the door for them to attempt to reshape fundamental laws and relationships between the rulers and the ruled. This is how the NWO will be brought in if we are not careful; by reshaping our perception until we have forgotten, while new children being born into this don’t know any better.

We must be aware of this psychological propaganda and push back with all our might. Our freedom depends on our vigilance.
