A Dollar Collapse Is Now In Motion – Saudi Arabia Signals The End Of Petro Status

The decline of a currency’s world reserve status is often a long process rife with denials. There are numerous economic “experts” out there that have been dismissing any and all warnings of dollar collapse for years. They just don’t get it, or they don’t want to get it. The idea that the US currency could ever be dethroned as the defacto global trade mechanism is impossible in their minds.

One of the key pillars keeping the dollar in place as the world reserve is its petro-status, and this factor is often held up as the reason why the Greenback cannot fail. The other argument is that the dollar is backed by the full force of the US military, and the US military is backed by the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve – In other words, the dollar is backed by…the dollar; it’s a very circular and naive position.

These sentiments are not only pervasive among mainstream economists, they are also all over the place within the alternative media. I suspect the main hang-up for liberty movement analysts is the notion that the globalist establishment would ever allow the dollar or the US economy to fail. Isn’t the dollar system their “golden goose”?

The answer is no, it is NOT their golden goose. The dollar is just another stepping stone towards their goal of a one-world economy and a one-world currency. They have killed the world reserve status of other currencies in the past, why wouldn’t they do the same to the dollar?

Globalist white papers and essays specifically outline the need for a diminished role for the US currency as well as a decline in the American economy in order to make way for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and a new global currency system controlled by the IMF. I warned about this years go, and my position has always been that the derailment of the dollar would likely start with the end of its petro status.

In 2017 I published an article titled ‘Saudi Coup Signals War And The New World Order Reset’. I noted at the time that the sudden power shift over to crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman indicated a change in Saudi Arabia’s relationship to the US. I stated that:

To understand how drastic this coup has been, consider this — for decades Saudi Kings maintained political balance by doling out vital power positions to separate, carefully chosen successors. Positions such as Defense Minister, the Interior Ministry and the head of the National Guard. Today, Mohammed Bin Salman controls all three positions. Foreign policy, defense matters, oil and economic decisions and social changes are now all in the hands of one man.”

The rise of MBS was backed by the Public Investment Fund (PIF), a fund comprised of trillions of dollars supplied by globalists within Carlyle Group (Bush family, etc.), Goldman Sachs, Blackstone and Blackrock. MBS garnered the favor of the globalists for one specific reason – He openly supported their “Vision For 2030”, a plan for the dismantling of “fossil fuel” based energy and the implementation of carbon controls. Yes, that’s right, the head of Saudi Arabia is backing the eventual end of oil based energy, and part of that includes the end of the dollar as the petro currency.  

In exchange for their cooperation, the Saudis are being given access to ESG-like funding as well as access to AI advancements and the so-called “digital economy.”  It sounds crazy, but there is much talk of AI developments to cure numerous health problems and extend lifespan.  With those kinds of promises, it’s not surprising that Saudi elites would be willing to dump the dollar and even oil.

In 2017 I noted that:

I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been the symbiosis between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been the single most important key to the dollar remaining as the petrocurrency from the very beginning.”

I believed that the threat to petro status would ultimately be spurred on by a proxy war between East and West:

World economic war is the real name of the game here, as the globalists play puppeteers to East and West. It is a geopolitical crisis they will have created to engineer public support for a solution they predetermined.”

Back then I thought that such a proxy war would be initiated in the Middle East, possibly in Iran. However, it’s clear that Ukraine is the powderkeg the globalists have chosen, at least for now, with Taiwan being the next shoe to drop.

In the years since I made these predictions the relationship between Saudi Arabia, Russia and China has grown very close. Arms deals and energy deals are becoming a mainstay of trade and this has led to a quiet but steady distancing of the Saudis from the dollar. This past week, the dominoes were set in motion for dollar collapse when Saudi Arabia announced at Davos that they are now willing to trade oil in alternative currencies.

In response, Xi Jinping pledged to ramp up efforts to promote the use of the Chinese yuan in energy deals. This falls in line with another article I wrote in 2017 titled ‘The Economic End Game Continues,’ in which I described how conflict with Eastern nations (China and Russia) would be exploited to create a catalyst for the end of the dollar’s petro status.

The importance of the Saudi announcement cannot be overstated; this is the beginning of the end of the dollar. The dollar’s world reserve status is largely dependent on its petro-status. Without one, you cannot have the other. This is almost the exact same dynamic that led to the implosion of the British Sterling decades ago as the global petro currency which resulted in the rise of the dollar to take its place.

This time, though, it will not be a single foreign currency that takes on the role of world reserve, it will be a basket currency system controlled by the IMF called Special Drawing Rights, along with a single global digital currency that is yet to be named but is now under development.

The consequences of the loss of reserve status will be devastating to the US economy. It is the only glue holding our system together – The ability to defer inflation by exporting it overseas is a superpower only the US enjoys. The Fed can print money perpetually if it wants to in order to fund the government or prop up US markets, as long as foreign central banks and corporate banks are willing to absorb dollars as a tool for global trade. If the dollar is no longer the primary international trade mechanism, the trillions upon trillions of dollars the Fed has created from thin air over the years will all come flooding back to the US through various avenues, and hyperinflation (or hyperstagflation) will be the result.

This dynamic is already in play, as foreign holders of US debt and dollars have been dumping them at record pace since 2017. The process continues at a time when the Federal Reserve is cutting it’s balance sheet and raising interest rates, which means there is no longer a buyer of last resort.

This may be why multiple foreign central banks have renewed their purchases of gold reserves and are once again stockpiling precious metals. They seem to be well aware of what is about to happen to the dollar, while the American public is kept in the dark.

The effects of the decline of the dollar may not be immediately felt, or become obvious for another year or two. What will happen is consistent inflation on top of the high prices we are already dealing with. Meaning, the Federal Reserve will continue to hold interest rates higher and prices will barely budge or they may climb in spite of monetary tightening. Even in the face of a major recessionary contraction, which I predict will be triggered starting in April, prices will STILL remain higher.

All the while the mainstream media and government economists will say they have “no idea” why inflation is so persistent, and that “nobody could have seen this coming.” Some of us saw it coming, but only because we accept the reality that the dollar’s days are numbered.

If you are disobedient to Mommy and Daddy government, they will cut off your allowance and send you to your room without supper.Once digital currencies become reality for the Plebs, they will control every aspect of your lives, even George Orwell could not come up with such a brilliant idea as digital cash. Now imagine if you don’t take Mommy and Daddy’s vaccine and booster shots like good little children? They will freeze your money and starve you until you give in.

    This is why the and excuse my French, the Fucktard liberals and Woketards hate guns. And this is precisely why the Founding Fathers allowed us to carry and bear arms. It was to protect us from the all seeing and powerful centralized government. Just take a look at NZ. The PM there quit because she was a crazed Covid lunatic. She was replaced by a worse tyrant who wants to HUNT down every unvaxed person and force them to get the Jab.

    This is why you should NEVER give up your right to arm yourself.

  • JustsayinJanuary 25, 2023 At 7:44 AmReplyNot only the Saudis, but other GCC countries are making separate trade deals with India, China, etc. South American countries are also discussing it The dollar system is starting to break up and what seems to remains is just when the debt bubble blows up to finish off the dollar reserve status.
  • RobertJanuary 25, 2023 At 10:27 AmReplyThe group called “BRICS” was developed when Obama came into power. Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa saw this coming, indeed. Other countries, including Saudi Arabia, are planning to join this group. While the western countries virtue-signal themselves to death, BRICS countries will thrive and will be the world’s new powerhouse.
  • Avatar photoBrandon SmithJanuary 25, 2023 At 11:05 AmReplyYes, a lot of wealth is being transferred over to the BRICs by the globalists, but the they still ALL work directly with the IMF. The goals is to diminish the west and then homogenize all economies and currencies into a one world system under IMF control.
  • HugoJanuary 25, 2023 At 12:38 PmReplyBrandon tanks to Ukraine now? I know you’ve talked about this escalating as a distraction with the ongoing economic collapse…where does this go from here, really thinking this is gonna be as close as you can get to nuclear
  • Avatar photoBrandon SmithJanuary 25, 2023 At 1:02 PmReplyI’ll be releasing an article soon on what I think will happen next in Ukraine. Needless to say, the war is about to escalate this spring.
    • RodsterJanuary 25, 2023 At 11:00 PmReplyLooking forward to that but I must say, this whole NATO v Russia just looks and sounds so fishy. Especially with Putin drawing red lines and NATO constantly crossing them. Looking forward to your analysis.
    • RodsterJanuary 25, 2023 At 11:05 PmReplyThe only thing I can think of is that the Globalists want to bring down the entire system. They tried it with Covid and the lockdowns and that didn’t do it. Now they are trying to use war to collapse the system especially if this turns into a world war.. I don’t see Nukes,
  • Black CatJanuary 25, 2023 At 5:54 PmReplyThe greatest global conflagration is upon us, the smoke is now rising into flames. All of good alternative media’s concerns over the last 10-20 years are merging as one into what will likely be the most intense fourth turning of all of global history.
  • Roundball ShamanJanuary 25, 2023 At 6:50 PmReply“The idea that the US currency could ever be dethroned as the defacto global trade mechanism is impossible in their minds.”
    The idea that the US itself could be dethroned as The Indispensable Superpower is likewise impossible in their minds. Perhaps their minds could use some expansion and a healthy dose of historical reality regarding Superpowers over the Ages. And what always happens to them.
    “In other words, the dollar is backed by…the dollar; it’s a very circular and naïve position.”
    Circular? Round and round and around? Also known as… Dizzy. Dizzy Economics. Dizzy governance.
    “World economic war is the real name of the game here, as the globalists play puppeteers to East and West.”
    A cataclysmic conflict between West and East has been prophesied for many years. One that devastates both sides and allows the Dark Predator Vulture Class to swoop in and sweep away all the old and all the death and decay and install their Dark Global Elitist Rule for the Ages. Sort of the exact opposite of the Christian Vision of the rule of a returning Christ.
    “The consequences of the loss of reserve status will be devastating to the US economy.”
    We don’t know exactly how or when. But what seems clear is that in the blink of an eye (or the flash of a horrible weapon… or a sudden Market Crash)… everything we have known about living our lives is going to change drastically. And how exactly does when prepare for such an Event beyond building our faith and strength to face such an Event?
    “All the while the mainstream media and government economists will say they have ‘no idea’ why inflation is so persistent, and that ‘nobody could have seen this coming’.”
    Mainstream Media is nothing more than State Media. Nothing of value will ever be coming from them.
