Just watch how quickly they'll properly value their currency if the dollar falls. They've positioned themselves well on the chessboard in anticipation of the possibility.
I agree. So they played the game much more successfully. If America didn't have the two year election cycle so politicians would be more willing to do the right things, but things that might cause the sheeple to roar with displeasure as they lost some government largess, perhaps it wouldn't have gotten this bad.

That is why we have the House (the People's House) 2 years people can change their reps, the Senate is the State's House, they are to represent the individual State Government in DC.

The Executive brach is to command the Army, and enforce the laws.

It refuses to properly value its currency, which gives it a decided economic and even strategic advantage.
Nixon's petrol dollar deal gave the US global currency dominance in a way that only the truly stupid could ever screw up. Hegemony agendas and greed has made other countries seek other forms of barter.

Plus Im sure the FBI was notified every time I bought his books on Amazon.signed up for Dr Roberts newsletter, or donated to his foundation. Opppps, there goes another alert.

And you're quite presumptuous, thinking that I'm confused about anything. You don't know me....don't presume anything. Anyone writing such inflammatory rhetoric, calling for the overthrowing of the govt. Is surely on the FBI's watchlist.

We all are. I think that's the point is our government has classified us all under the laws they have created as "terrorists" Opps there I go again. Lol
