The imaginary Mr. X

I tend to doubt this purported "Mr. X" actually exists. He reads more like a literary device than an actual person of import. That being said, literally everything that is reported to have come out of his mouth on economics and money appears to be much more accurate than not, from my perspective:

“You have to understand that Obama, Trump or Biden report to the same ‘number one,’ and they have no say on any important issue.

“Number one” was formerly OSS (Office of Strategic Services) with William J. Casey under Wild Bill Donovan (creator of OSS) and later CIA.  He married a super-rich lady and ran a prosperous industry.  Number one said that they were not going to stop the currency rigging that was destroying our industries as we were number one in the world and could afford it.  And Wall Street wanted to make money out of it who were rigging the markets through cash settlement to this day.  Number one also controls the Congress and the Supreme Court and I am quite familiar on how these leading wonders were groomed.  They essentially are picked because they can be controlled by past corruption and they have the goods on them.

“The CIA doctored the boarding tapes of Islamic people boarding planes in Boston and blamed 9-11 on a failed former CIA asset named Osama bin Laden who had nothing to do with it and then decided to detonate Building Number 7 since the necessary misdirection was supplied by the doctored boarding tapes. Then there was reason to send the army to Afghanistan, bin Laden’s lair, to take over the heroin/poppy trade there.  Trump wanted out of Afghanistan and that was why the Deep State had to engineer an election against him.  Trump had tapes showing this ruse and could have released them, to win the election.  For unexplained reasons, the tapes weren’t disclosed publicly.”

Balance of trade

“I had recommended to Donald how to cure the trade deficit in one step.  That step mean we would counter-rig the currencies who had trade surpluses with us as our allies had rigged their currencies against us by depreciating them.  We would buy the currencies of all trade surplus countries with the US raising their value so our nation would not buy their products to end the trade deficit and create a surplus to pay off 14 trillion of our net-deficit- position in the world.”

“You do not need tariffs to stop the trade deficit you just realign the currencies.  We just counter-rig by buying their currencies.  I guarantee you it will work, for if necessary, we would put the Euro to 3 dollars per euro.  We would buy nothing.  And that would end NATO.  Fine.”

Bitcoin

“When the Bitcoin people came to me for my support for their coins, I said if you make them redeemable in gold, and you continue with an unchangeable finite amount of gold backing each coin, and that gold is in a secure place, then you will replace the world currencies if US military allows you to do so.  Otherwise, I have no interest in your phony currency.”

China vs. USA

“China is a unified country.  Everyone is Chinese.  The United States is a Balkanized country where everyone is at each-others’ throats.  We saw that when hundreds of cities burned last summer but the roots were quite apparent without such a demonstration if we look at the demographic characteristics of the historical rising crime waves that are out of control in the US.   The black male rape attacks on white women are so bad that Obama had the series stopped.”

“We need not run the gamut of comparisons with China as the proportions are about the same in all product lines.  Our analysis is that the GDP of China is about double that of the US in real terms.  China is the greatest industrial power in the world dwarfing the EU and the United States.  China has returned to its original status of world leader in 1400 AD.  … Today we calculate the Chinese GDP at about 40 trillion dollars a year.   Their steel production is above a trillion tons a year against ours which is less than 100 billion.  Their motor vehicle production is 27 million cars a year and ours 11 million a year in 2017.   And I could go on and on.”

We know the GDP is fake. I proved that beyond any shadow of a possible doubt back in 2009, in the No One Knows Anything chapter of The Return of the Great Depression, when I showed that the margin of publicly reported errors is consistently greater than the difference between economic growth and economic contraction.

Now, consider the possibility that the real economy of China is twice the size of the US economy. This might go a very long way to explaining the strange geopolitical developments of the last two years, as well as why the USA and the rest of the West is obviously backing away from their decades-old promises to Hong Kong and Taiwan.

China's ships and planes need only be good enough that we must destroy them, and as long as they can make ships, et cetera faster than we can build the missiles to destroy them, they win. If they can actually make effective weapons, they win quickly.

Since they own Biden and the Pentagon, that's all academic.

The OSS was dissolved in late 1945. Even if X was 18 in 1945, that means he is alive and in his full faculties enough to run the country at 94 years old.

Even if he meant the INR (from 46 to 47) that means X is running the US at 92 years old, at the very least. Adrenochrome is great stuff. But come on.

To add to that, the books you have published have also been of immense help.

And your book on Jordan Peterson quickly disabused me of the notion that he was /ourguy/.

Square with this one later in the quote?
"Our analysis is that the GDP of China is about double that of the US in real terms. China is the greatest industrial power in the world dwarfing the EU and the United States."

The context is economic, but it clearly isn't referring to GDP. Perhaps it's relating to currency manipulation. Perhaps it's referring to (((us))) as elites instead of us as a country.

This doesn't pass the smell test, imho. I get why Vox highlighted it, as some of it is consistent with his own observations and derived conclusions. To be clear, I'm not questioning Vox, whose intellectual integrity I have the utmost respect for. This Mr. X, though, and his purported "influence/knowledge", is the sort of thing found in every third-rate spy novel. Or out of the mouths of people like Simon Parkes, who may have a few inside connections they get morsels from and then attempt to guess and construct/describe a theory about what may be really happening behind the scenes, only to have real-world events contradict them time after time.

I wish I could say I could do better. Lord knows I've tried and I'm still trying. But nothing is really adding up at this point. "Curiouser and curiouser", as Vox so aptly put it. I mean, Trump getting into office and surviving for 4 very productive years makes no sense at all in the context of China (or Deep State globalists, take your pick) having the kind of destructive leverage over all of our institutions that now "seems" apparent. How does showing people how good things can actually be with a President acting in their best interests benefit the endgame of any malicious foreign actors? I still maintain Trump would have simply been assassinated within a few months of taking office if it were just a case of him winning the election by voters overwhelming the then in-place election fraud mechanisms. He could not have survived without having the backing of some very powerful players who themselves had leverage on the key power structures of the world.

One scenario I can think of that fits "some" of the facts is that the God Emperor himself was duped into playing a role by being promised certain kinds of support (military, intelligence, etc.) that then progressively evaporated when push came to shove, for the express purpose of weakening certain groups of power players, to achieve some objectives having nothing to do with the well-being of the American people. Bill Barr's performance would fall right in line with that. I'm about evenly divided between that scenario and the Q one about "...you are watching a movie", wherein almost everyone is playing a "role" to bring about "the great awakening" shift in public consciousness. The recent exposure of Fauci and the Wuhan lab leak info gives some hope in that direction. But I simply don't know, and it is quite maddening.

Blogger zenshade June 05, 2021 6:38 PM  

@37. The easy answer is that the elite are much favored by the "god of this world". A more in-depth answer is that you aren't talking about a few tens of people that need eliminated. You can't just cut the head off the evil snake and thereby kill it. You are talking about a vast, hierarchical network of many layers whose participants likely increase by a factor of ten each layer down you go. Something like ten dark emperors at the top, a hundred general types below that, a thousand lieutenants below them, down to potentially millions at the foot soldier level, covering all aspects of the political, business, academic, criminal, and, most importantly, military and intelligence classes. If you cut the head of the snake off, another one will rise up to take it's place immediately.

The key thing is, once you reach a certain level of control within an organization, you never advance anyone that you can't control, i.e. have leverage over. The preferred method of compromise should be fairly obvious given the number of politicians, CEOs, etc who have been peripherally associated with pedophilia, if not outright indicted for it. It's probably the case that the promotion pool of candidates consist almost entirely of individuals who already have a predilection for that behavior.

Now consider that each layer and node in a layer likely acts in a compartmentalized "need to know" manner, like sleeper cells, with only a few individuals monitoring the lower levels and knowing little about the layers above. Those individuals primarily know only that they are given marching orders by people who will destroy them if they don't obey.

It's also a near certainty that the people who publicly look like they are high up in the power echelon really aren't, like the handful of banking "families" or creeps like Bill Gates and Jack Dorsey. They're just a front to keep the real power hidden. Taking them out would be VERY ineffective.

The likely truth is we're dealing with a sprawling evil that's akin to a monstrously large beast from the depths of hell that has a million tentacles and can only be weakened but never killed, due simply to the sinful nature of man and it having dominion over this material world. It's weakness is it is made up of parasitical liars that can create almost nothing on their own. "Ye shall know them by their fruits."

And fight it we must, or it will without hesitation destroy everything we care about.

But but but but China is socialist!

Yeah, GDP not normalised to the M3 money supply, at least, is pretty much useless as an economic and prosperity indicator, in my opinion. Of course, the boomers, lolbertarians, liberals, neoliberals, classical liberals, conservacucks and others on the economic right swear by the Holy GDP being the only indicator that matters (or the only thing that matters at all, apart from maybe the stock market, prices on which are also heavily dependent on the money supply but are never actually compared to it), but only when it's not normalised to the money supply. Cause then it might actually be useful and informative and might actually show economic contraction is occurring.

I think there are better indicators than even GDP normalised to the m3 money supply, such as energy production and consumption (even that can be partly misleading due to differences in the energy efficiency of housing, home appliances, cars), rate of car and home ownership, tons of steel manufactured or recycled per year, tons of fuel of various types consumed per year and others.

Very few people know or understand that allowing consumer loans in foreign currencies within your borders weakens them against your own currency within your borders. This is because all bank loans are currency creation and by allowing loans in foreign currencies within your borders, you are allowing endogenous creation of foreign currency reserves which didn't enter your country as payments for your exports. Thereby making foreign currencies cheaper in your country than they ought to be. Thereby driving down the exchange rates for them. Thereby making imports which must be paid in said foreign currencies cheaper than the ought to be, in your country.

Which, of course, is a hidden subsidisation of imports into your country. Which, of course, causes:
1. your country to become de-industrialised,
2. the service sector to become the only place people can still find employment
3. unemployment to rise.
4. life expectancy and living standards to drop.
5. population flight.
6. birth rates to plummet.
7. abortion rates, infant mortality to skyrocket.
8. massive inflation, most visible in real-estate prices, which are also a fan favourite for being paid for using bank loans, which are themselves usually awarded in foreign currencies in countries which allow consumer loans in foreign currencies and start this entire train wreck to begin with.

This is the recipe which was applied to my own country, Romania.

It all starts with free trade and free lending (allowing consumer loans in foreign currencies within your borders). Loans in foreign currencies should only ever be allowed for the funding of the import of means of production and manufacturing or design technology. Never consumer goods, real-estate or end products.

The economic right is full of useful idiots and traitors. And there are a lot of them.

Blogger SonyAD June 06, 2021 1:44 PM  

Also, the reason the US has had a negative trade balance since the 70s, and has been able to sustain it for that long without consumer loans in foreign currencies within its borders (that I know of, maybe I'm just ignorant but I don't think that's a thing in the United States) is the getting other countries to demand dollars for their oil exports and also for conducting international trade between themselves as well, in addition to conducting trade with the US in USD.

What this does is create artificial demand for the USD, demand which does not need to come from demand for US exports combined with the need to pay for said goods and services using USD, but can come from the demand for other countries' exports combined with the need for USD with which to pay for said goods and services.

The US has been sustaining its 50 years old negative trade balance by parasitizing the rest of the world economy. Which it did by 'convincing' or coercing other countries to demand USD as payment for their own exports, as if they were exports of the US economy, instead of demanding payment in their own national currency.

People and countries which threatened to jeopardise this arrangement, or dared consider selling their oil or other exports for euros or gold or anything other than USD quickly found themselves on the wrong end of the US military industrial complex.

No one can be allowed to be seen to have given up the USD for payment for its exports without very dire, very unpleasant, very deleterious consequences, lest a very dangerous precedent be set: that the US now allows countries to throw off the US currency yoke on their exports without utterly destroying them.

It's fear of the US MIC that keeps this system in place. And it's a bad system for everyone, including the US. Because it means deindustrialisation, unemployment, an over bloated service sector and a monstrously over bloated and parasitical financial sector, loss of diversity and robustness in the economy etc.

The longer a negative trade balance is maintained artificially, the harder and more painful it is to finally give up. Because the more de-industrialised and dependent on imports you become.

Which brings us to present day and the massive inflation of the USD money supply by the US banking system. Which I suspect to be an attempt to soften the transition away from a massively subsidised negative trade balance. Inflating the US money supply in the US at massive rates, faster than can be absorbed or compensated for by other countries' positive trade balances, means that imports will gradually start to become more and more prohibitive, even with the USD still being the reserve currency and the currency for most international trade.

Which, theoretically, should start to result in the gradual re-industrialisation of the US. However, having kept Trump's tariffs in place would have been much more helpful than attempting to do this only through debasing the currency as fast as possible. The obvious intention of dismantling the highway system is probably the kernel of a plan to start transitioning the US to rail travel, less commuting and especially far less commuting by car, in preparation for gas prices to skyrocket for Americans once the petrodollar becomes a thing of the past. The intentional economic devastation caused by the lockdowns and restrictions on service sector business activity was and probably still is intended to reduce the miles that the average American commutes, by car, per year, by rendering them unemployed from their jobs that require cheap energy for long commutes and also killing the businesses that employed people who commute a long way to their workplace. People who commute a long way to their workplace are mostly people who don't get paid enough to afford to live within city limits. And most of those people work in service sector jobs in retail or restaurants/hospitality industry.
