Do we have any actual evidence this is happening? Or just tweets.

The US (and much of the Western world) is in economic free fall. This was occurring long before Covid Mania was engineered but now it is moving with much greater velocity.

The collapse started in 2008 and attempts to salvage this Leviathan have been failures only delaying the inevitable. Fast forward to 2019 and the crisis began to unravel again. There was a dramatic decrease in industrial production and then showed up in the banking crisis of August of 2019- the so-called Repo crisis when suddenly banks started to refuse US sovereign debt instruments as collateral of overnight loans forcing the Federal Reserve to step in and basically print money to cover this massive shortage.

So by the time the “Corona virus” appeared the economy of the United States and many other Western countries were in full blown collapse.

The “Corona virus” has proven to be very useful (poetically and coincidentally showed up just in time) by political leaders to mask (metaphor and reality) what was and is going on in the “real world” of the financial trenches. The economic destruction that it is being blamed for is absolutely extraordinary.

It’s not economic policy decisions made through the years by financial parasites (who are now here to save and “reset” us) that are destroying our lives it’s an alien virus.

Except for the burgeoning bull markets in gold and silver, waiting on the launch pads.

A bunch of wusses just gave up. Even their ‘culture’ being sold off isn’t worth much more than whining one liners on the National Socialist media. Still waiting for some election to save them.

Just a nice little side benefit for the bastards.

Just like the victors in any war, someone winds up with the spoils.
