Has the U.S. Seizure of Russian Assets Boomeranged?

• Jacob Hornberger - FFF

After the Pentagon, operating through NATO, succeeded in provoking Russia's invasion of Ukraine, U.S. official and their allies seized $300 billion in Russian assets. The seizers are now talking about giving the loot to Ukrainian officials, who would then use it to buy armaments and ammunition from U.S. "defense" contractors.

Meanwhile, the news media is reporting that central banks are purchasing gold in record amounts. Is that a coincidence or correlation?

If you were in charge of a foreign regime that was not a lackey of the U.S. government, would you keep your reserves in places where the U.S. government could seize it whenever it wanted? If you wished to retain your nation's independence, it seems to me that you would want to keep your reserves at home or in nations that could be trusted to return it to you on demand rather than accede to seizure dictates from the U.S. government.

In fact, I can't figure out why Russian officials would leave their money in places where U.S. officials and their lackeys could seize it. I'll bet the Chinese regime is not making that mistake.

My hunch is that one reason that many foreign governments who don't toe the line set by U.S. officials are investing in gold — and storing it in places that are beyond the reach of U.S. officials — is to protect themselves from what the U.S. government has done to Russia.

Another reason they might be investing in gold is because they don't trust the Federal Reserve to rein in inflation, especially given that this is an election year. Incumbent public officials don't like recessions during election years because voters tend to get upset. Thus, it shouldn't surprise anyone that the Fed is now signaling that it will begin reducing interest rates within the next few months.

But consider. Biden and the deep State are not stupid. After all, they have figured out and put into effect methods to steal $billions from the American people. A, sort of, legal money laundering. Much of the money has gone to Zelensky and other of his big people just to buy passage through Ukraine to who-knows where. So, does anybody think that they didn't understand that the sanctions would only make Russia stronger? Of course they understood that. They wanted Russia to be stronger for reasons that the general public don't understand. IT PROBABLY HAS TO DO WITH a method for destroying America, because Americans are too freedom minded to destroy them any other way. The goal is to make Russia the new world leader. Everything we see happening is just a BIG cover for Russia becoming the headquarters of the New World Order.
