OPERATION SANDMAN now activated – Saudi Arabia announces END of dollar dominance in global oil trade … the dominoes begin to fall on the US empire
01/18/2023 / By Mike Adams
As we have consistently warned for more than a year, Operation Sandman has now been activated, with Saudi Minister of Finance, Mohammed Al-Jadaan, telling Bloomberg TV (during a WEF Davos interview) that the Saudis will gladly accept all currencies for settling oil transactions.

The foundational pillar of US global currency dominance and its ability to export inflation to the world is based on the so-called Petrodollar status, in which the US agreed to protect the (corrupt) Saudi kingdom in exchange for the Saudis demanding US dollars for all oil transaction settlements. This agreement has been in place since the Bretton Woods conference in 1944 and has carried the dollar until today.
But this arrangement is now coming to an end.
Very few Americans have any clue what this means to their assets and their future.
Also, very few people realize that over 100 nations are prepared to renounce the petrodollar as the dominant currency for oil settlements. Instead, many nations are going to switch to using the Yuan (from China), or the digital Yuan, or the new BRICS+ commodities-backed reserve currency that’s about to be launched by China, Russia, India and other participating nations.
The dominoes have been set into motion. And as this plays out, it means dollars will come flooding back to the United States as world nations dump the greenback fiat currency they no longer need. This means dollars will experience rapid devaluation in their purchasing power, which will be reflected in higher prices — i.e. inflation — in consumer goods such as groceries, automobiles and more.
Although this will take time to be fully realized, it also means that those people left holding dollars will be financial ruined as dollar purchasing power evaporates. The government response to all this is almost certain to include a new wave of mindless money printing, adding yet more dollar inventory to the flood of dollars being dumped by nations of the world. The end game is, of course, hyperinflation as the dollar loses not just 2% of its purchasing power per month, but may even slide into losing 10%, 20% or even more per month (in the final blowout stage). Think Weimar Germany as the end game here.
Protecting assets now becomes a matter of urgency
Among informed Americans — and anyone holding dollars — protecting assets must now become a top priority. This means we should expect a rapid shift of excess dollars into hard assets over the next several months: Gold, silver, land, vehicles, ammunition, firearms, food, etc. Check Comex silver inventories if you want to know what the insiders are already doing (hint: They are taking physical delivery of precious metals and emptying the vaults).
It also means that the prices we see today in almost everything are likely the lowest prices we’ll see for years to come. At some point, plummeting populations (mass vaccine die-offs) and rising interest rates will have a strong deflationary effect, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards for 2023 or even 2024. All the strongest factors remain inflationary, and the Saudi decision to sell oil in currencies other than dollars is going to devalue dollars which means consumer prices will be inflated in dollars.
We strongly urge all readers to investigate strategies for asset diversification and reducing exposure to dollars, dollar-denominated assets (such as bonds) and the entire US banking system which seems increasingly fragile.
World Economic Forum panelists predict ‘catastrophic cyber event’ in near future
01/24/2023 / By JD Heyes
If you listen closely enough, the globalist power brokers who attend the annual World Economic Forum events tell you what’s in store for the planet, and some panelists dropped a huge hint at the last WEF confab last week in Davos, Switzerland.
Specifically, a group of panel members predicted that the world would face a “catastrophic cyber event” within the next two years.
A clip of Jeremy Jurgens, the WEF’s Managing Director and head of the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, revealed what the globalist deep state has in store for we, the peons, in the near future, claiming to base the remarks on the results of his organization’s “Global Security Outlook Report 2023,” according to the outlet Valiant News.
Translation: The globalists can’t get the peons to give up their modern lives fast enough with scare tactics like “global warming” and “climate change” so they will crash the grid and individual economies to drive the masses into slavery by force.
“We’re here today to share the findings of the World Economic Forum’s Global Security Outlook Report 2023,” Jurgens noted, according to the outlet. “The most striking finding that we found is that 93% of cyber leaders and 86% of business leaders believe that the geopolitical instability makes a catastrophic cyber event likely in the next two years.”
The report “examines the cybersecurity trends that will impact our economies and societies in the year to come,” while it describes how businesses should be more prepared to face potential cyber threats. In addition, the report recommends an increase in hiring cyber experts based on “diversity and inclusion” as a “broad solution.”
You know these people are not serious when they instruct companies to focus on “diversity and inclusion” to beef up their cybersecurity rather than education, training, experience, and demonstrated competence — which means they are going to trigger the cyber event.
“Cyber talent recruitment and retention continues to be a key challenge for managing cyber resilience. A broad solution to increase the supply of cyber professionals is to expand and promote inclusion and diversity efforts,” an executive summary of the report says.
It should be noted that this upcoming event has been planned for some time, as the organization has been warning the world for years about the increasing likelihood of devastating cyber attacks. WEF founder Klaus Schwab informed attendees and viewers two years ago that a “frightening scenario of a comprehensive cyberattack would bring to a complete halt to the power supply, transportation, hospital services, our society as a whole.”
“The COVID-19 crisis would be seen in this respect as a small disturbance in comparison to a major cyberattack,” Schwab added.
The report notes further:
Geopolitical instability, rapidly maturing and emerging technologies, lack of available talent, and increasing shareholder and regulatory expectations represent some of the significant challenges that concern cyber and business leaders. If the findings of last year’s Global Cybersecurity Outlook reflected the lingering impact of the pandemic, and the effects of rapid digitalization, this year’s Global Cybersecurity Outlook reveals concerns about an increasingly fragmented and unpredictable world.
The outlook, however, need not seem bleak. There’s hope for better understanding – and more effective action – in the future. The best leaders avail themselves of wide-ranging information and listen to all of their stakeholders, understand their role and impact, and exercise good judgement to achieve the optimum outcomes. These attributes are no less necessary in cybersecurity than they are in any other domain.
How will this attack occur? Most likely it will be couched in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, with the globalist West’s continuation of pouring weapons into Ukraine as the impetus. Naturally, Russia will be blamed because the end game is to destroy Moscow’s regime and boost China as the ‘factory of the world.’ A global competitor is eliminated and the globalist WEF elite get to make billions off of Chinese labor.
