Just read on Zerohedge that CONgress is set to approve 1.1 Billion military aid package to Taiwan.

WTF?

Congress, in of itself has turned into a national security threat.

Looting the treasury is always one of the last acts of a collapsing empire.

Printing to zero. Check.

Engaging hostilities with two nuclear super powers. Check.

Deliberate destruction of US. Check.

I could have picked pretty much any year where i think there was a paradigm shift in the fuct which we currently are, is mostly due to the GAO Human Capital Reform Act, which let them get away with everything and the flood gates trickled faster and now its like a the dam broke on a canyon full of douche.

A very significant percentage of the world's microprocessors / CPUs are manufactured in Taiwan.

If China takes Taiwan, the world changes big time.

The US just sent 50 billion to the Ukraine.

Should have sent 1.1 billion to the Ukraine, and 50 Billion to Taiwan.

Get your money out of the banks. It’s literally losing value as we speak/type.

1
TheChillConservative 1 point ago +1 / -0

And put it where… under the mattress to continue losing value? Real estate? What are you suggesting? (Not that I don’t agree with the sentiment, just that simply pulling it out will do no good)

Any physical commodity that you can barter with and/or land.

No offense, but I don't see any recent post on ZH recently regarding 1.1b in aid to Taiwan. Perhaps you can post a link. Of maybe it was a comment? If so, what story?

In the article about Taiwan shooting live rounds at Chinese drones. It's there.

Believe it or not the reason they're so desperate to spend is because our rising interest rate is crushing the Euro. If Congress can force the FED to create more dollars they can halt the rising interest rate, or even lower it. However, this time, the FED will not capitulate like they always have in the past. It's a power struggle and the US bankers are going to win.

I do not expect any more big spending bills to pass and I expect interest rates to continue rising.

2
King_of_Crazy [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

It is way worse than interest rates. Congress welds no power over the FED.

The FED is the last bastion for positive interest rates in western hegemony. Let that sink in.

With the dollar full fiat there will be no end in sight to spending.

The House hasn't passed a balanced budget since 2001.

Billions and trillions will be printed.

As of June 2022, the FED has put 2,278 BILLION dollars into circulation.

This is a part of that overall plan. Print to zero.

Paper money eventually reverts to its intrinsic value, zero. - Voltaire

Biden just announced his "Safe America Plan". Another 10B he will ask CONgress to approve. More deficit spending. Who won't approve more police?

Probably a chinese friends handout, or a usa population litmus test to see if they are paying attention.

You wouldn't be able to help Taiwan with 200b if china got serious.

What any kind of aid is more likely to result in is another drag-on-war with more deaths in the civil population and more wealth being transferred to the victor.

It is just looting for usa people, one way or the other.

I'm with you, I like Taiwan. I'm for giving them aid, though I don't want gov't stealing our money to do it.

Of all the aid the gov gives out, at least Taiwan isn't about some bullshit reason. It would be ostensibly fighting communism. But in reality they are all on the same team, so I don't think Taiwan is really going to be protected.

you gonna have to go back a few years when COCKgress passed a bill making it mandatory that the USA supply weapons to taiwan.
