People may not realize that 90% of all physical trade is moved by container ships. Because of COVID-19, the disruption in the supply chain has created a shortage in containers never seen before. Because companies could not ship their good during the lockdowns, the attempt to catch up has led to a massive shortage of containers. The Suez Canal block only exasperated the crisis.
Some believe a major crisis unfolding in rubber, which some now believe has been deliberately created to reduce global warming by preventing tires from arriving for cars. Rubber is used far beyond just tires. Nevertheless, rubber producers face climate change restrictions, activists who would love to see them shut down completely, a destructive fungus, and then the continued politicization of COVID-19. In Japanese yen terms, the high in rubber took place on an annual closing basis back in 2010 with the intraday high in 2011. We saw a 10-year decline with the historic low forming last year, which ended up creating an outside reversal to the upside. From a long-term perspective, rubber looks to be poised for a broader rally into the years ahead. Short-term, there has been overhead resistance
COMMENT: Distrust of public health officials may be a major factor in people refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Nearly a third of Americans believe officials are lying about vaccine safety, a number that rises to almost two-thirds among those who say they don’t intend to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of American Adults believe public health officials are lying about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. Forty-eight percent (48%) don’t think so, while 20% are not sure.
REPLY: This is what is emerging. When politics crossed the line and tried to use COVID to create climate lockdowns and bring in the Great Reset, they lost all credibility. I do not care if people start dropping dead on the street. I will not get one of these vaccines. They can shoot me, and I would say thank you. Fully Vaccinated people are still dying. Six fully vaccinated just died of COVID in the most vaccinated country.
I cherish my liberty and without it, I prefer death. I have been to communist states. I went behind the Berlin Wall before it fell. I have seen the nightmare that awaits when the left gets control. No thank you! These people cheering the left have no idea that to target the rich that they hate so much, they themselves will surrender all their freedom as well. Absolute delusional fools. You cannot tax only billionaires without everyone proving they are not a billionaire. The burden of proof is always on you. They don’t bother to tell you that.
A number of people have written in suggesting we ban together and buy an island. That may be a good hedge against the insanity of these people. They have no idea what the Revolution was all about or what inspired the words of Patrick Henry – give me liberty or give me death. There are some things that are worth fighting for. What Babylon Bee put out is funny, but sadly becoming reality.
Interestingly, at least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY driver’s licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021. In total, during this COVID nonsense, 104,960 New Yorkers made the switch to Florida. New Jersey came in second with 53,901, and the migration has also been from Georgia (48,143), Illinois (46,042), and California (43,801). The stats are really astounding. We will see taxes rise further in those states because the people leaving are the highest income earners.
The general talk has been that the end of the fiat monetary system is imminent. Central bank digital currencies allegedly threaten the US dollar, according to some very shallow reasoning and a total lack of understanding about why the dollar is even the reserve currency. Beyond that delusion, these people are claiming that cryptocurrency will end fiat currency. But even private cryptocurrency is not backed by anything either.
Then there is serious talk behind the curtain in addition to the United Nations trying to become the one-world government that will be a dictatorship with no democratic process whatsoever. There is some argument that the central banks’ digital currencies will not displace the dollar and that title will go to the digital “IMF Coin” that will become the new reserve currency.
The dollar is the reserve currency, just as was the Roman silver denarius because it was not just the financial capital of the world. Still, they both represented the major economy, and everyone was trying to sell to the core. Rome conquered most of the Western World at that time, and most found it beneficial to be part of Rome. They often received capital investment into emerging markets, and they produced local goods to be sold to Rome. For example, Egypt was a major supplier of wheat to Rome.
Most transactions today are digital, so converting paper dollars to cryptocurrency will not dramatically alter the economy. The UN and IMF are simply trying to take over the world for a power play. They do not have armies, nor do they possess economies to qualify for the world’s financial capital. They are drunk with this delusion of power that by sheer decree, they can rule the world. From the very beginning, the elite saw in their vision that they would dominate the world and end democracy. Huxley was against the United States and believed that “unrestricted individualism” was equally wrong as a total dictatorship as in communism.
This is what Kalus Schwab is saying in his 8 points for 2030 — end the threat of “populism,” as was the case in electing Trump, by eliminating any right of the people to be heard. What Schwab, the UN, and IMF see is retaining some basic human rights but removing our right to even say what kind of government we want. In their world, only the elite know what is best — not the people.
This is the real agenda behind cryptocurrencies to lay the foundation for the ultimate power being handed to the UN and the IMF. This folly will not succeed. For such entities are like men and even corporations — they are never immortal. I will celebrate the day the flags of the UN are lowered forever. It has always been a very dangerous and lustful entity drooling for supreme power.
These people are truly insane. If they believe that humans are the most destructive thing on this planet, then they should lead the way to mass suicide. It makes one think that perhaps in protest, we need to go have as many children as possible, for the birth rates have been declining. I have been in discussions in Europe, and the main reason they have welcomed the immigrants is that their birth rate has declined, and their social programs are collapsing. By allowing the immigrants into Europe, the true objective was to increase the workforce in hopes of sustaining the Socialist system and retirement plans that are crumbling.
Gates has won the day. He is having all of these environmentalists taking grants from his foundation to put out studies to support his position of reducing the population.

Putin reveals what he thought about Lenin’s entire Communist movement, making it clear that Lenin was not a statesman but just a Bolshevik Revolutionary.
The importance of this answer by Putin reveals how he thinks of Ukraine. Lenin tried to standardize all humans into this cookie-cutter idea and failed. Putin is revealing his disagreement with the Great Reset, which is following the same mistake of Lenin. He is far more intelligent than the Western press portrays him.
We know the Democrats have morphed into the ‘Socialist Democratic Party.’ The word socialism can be considered a euphemism for Marxism. Senator Sanders may say he’s peddling e a soft form of socialism, but we know he honeymooned in Moscow and praised Castro as well as the Sandinistas. Bernie is a Marxist.
So is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Very few of the Democrat socialists believe in ‘America First.’ Instead, they’re all on the same page. They’re using climate change as a slippery slope that leads to communism. Like the Bolsheviks, they do not want a competing party. That’s why the violence committed by the Marxist Black Lives Matter group and Antifa is easily forgiven by the Democrats, yet the protest at the capitol building by Trump supporters is compared to the worst insurrection since the Civil War. The Democrats want to stay in power permanently and like the Bolsheviks, they will lie, cheat, murder, destroy American culture, and commit mayhem to do it.
The Republicans In Name Only or “RINOs” are really Democrats and globalists themselves. The Bushes, the McCains, the Cheneys have all been praised by the Democrats as ‘good’ Republicans. These neocons panicked and betrayed their own party when a real Republican and America First president was elected. Mitt Romney in particular showed his true Marxist colors and fought Trump at every turn. Romney is a traitor.
Perhaps the worst turncoat is Joe Biden. Good ol’ lunch bucket Joe pretended he was a traditional Democrat fighting for the middle class and blue collar types. Yet there’s something fishy about Joe. It’s obvious now that he’s swallowed the Green New Deal and Marxism hook line and sinker. He’d probably swallow Karl Marx’s fishing pole if he could. He has informed us that our Constitution isn’t absolute and that governmentis ‘We The People,’ not the citizens. Instead of unifying the country he has divided it further. He continues to denounceTrump supporters as terrorists and ‘white supremacists’ as he fails to prosecute Antifa members for burning down cities.
Biden and the Democrats love the communist party system in China. They want to suppress free speech and take our guns—just like in China. They want medical tyranny, tracking, spying, and granular control over all Americans—just like in in China.
Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. China Joe is continuing the transformation. It means more power to the government and less freedom for the people. The transformation is about making us a carbon copy of Communist China—with the Marxist Democrats as the ruling party.
Bill and Melinda Gates are filing for divorce. The inside scoop is she has not been happy with his direction of changing the world and all the hate mail directed at them. It was really just a question of time. What Bill Gates has set out to force the world to ZERO CO2 and to reduce the population has gradually eaten away at Melinda. Some suggest that she has an inner conscious about humanity which is absent from Bill. This will be a most interesting DIVORCE for it seems to actually fit with our models.
I published this forecast on Gates back on May 8, 2020. I warned back then that this was the peak of his eighth 8.6-year wave which hit April 28th, 2020. Gates’ and Schwab’s attempt to take over the world using scare tactics is a very dangerous proposition. I warned that the “ideal peak in his power may have taken place on April 28th and that is good news for us. If this proves correct, he should be in for a fall in prestige and power going into 2024.”
His divorce is actually coming right on target. It is actually a welcome piece of news that his wife is divorcing him. It pretty much confirms that the peak in his power was indeed April 2020 when he launched this Great Reset. Perhaps all the hatred being poured out against Gates has finally made Melinda see the real person that he is – a very dangerous individual. The peak of his 8.6-year personal cycle also marked 26 years of his marriage.
Hallelujah – the Self-Annoited Health Czar of the World has reached his peak!
