The Impact Of A SWIFT Ban On Russia And The World 

  • SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) is the global financial system that allows immediate and secure transfers of money across borders. It is the web that verifies all financial transactions. It links 11,000 banks and institutions in more than 200 countries, with 40 million messages a day. Using SWIFT ensures that transactions happen in seconds in a secure way. Around 1% of those messages involve Russian payments, according to the BBC.
  • As part of the West sanctions against Russia, its banks have been banned from the SWIFT system. Additionally, the United States and the European Union have announced restrictions on the Russian central bank that block access to more than $600 billion in reserves. The Bank of Russia reports that only 22% of its international reserves are US Dollars, while gold accounts for 23%.
  • What does this mean? On the one hand, the move aims to block all options of the central bank to defend its currency from plummeting even more against the US dollar or the euro. In recent years, the Russian central bank has been reducing its exposure to US treasuries and shifting from US dollar reserves to euro and yuan, as well as gold. Access to those reserves is more difficult now, and in the case of euro and yen, probably close to impossible.
  • However, Russian banks may bypass the SWIFT system and use other alternatives, mainly though a parallel system in China, called CIPS (Cross-Border Interbank Payments System), which facilitates transactions in yuan. According to CIPS, at  
  • Banning Russian banks from SWIFT may cripple many Latin American and Middle East economies that have deep financial connections with Russia, but there is a risk for the United States that the CIPS alternative, which is marginal at best today, grows rapidly.
  • The United States and Europe cannot fully ban SWIFT due to the importance of Russian oil, gas, metals, and wheat exports, and this may create numerous challenges that significantly limit the so-called “nuclear option”. The Russian central bank’s large gold reserves are also a differentiating factor compared to other economies.

Feinstein talks with FBI about her husband’s stock trades

  • Her husband, Richard Blum, is an investment banker who reportedly sold his shares in a biotech company in January before the coronavirus crisis sent the stock market into a tailspin. The transaction was reported in Feinstein’s routine Senate financial disclosure forms, and her spokesman said at the time the senator has no involvement in her husband’s stock trades.
  • The issue has come to the forefront in recent weeks as other senators have come under scrutiny for their stock trades, prompting allegations of insider trading. The 2012 STOCK Act prohibits lawmakers and aides from buying and selling stocks based on information obtained through their official duties.

‘State of the Union Is Disunity and Division’: AP Rips Biden Before Tuesday Speech  

  • The AP pointed to polling and data to back up its diagnosis:
  • Only 29% of Americans think the nation is on the right track, according to the February poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

  • Most Americans are vaccinated against COVID-19, but debates over masks and mandates have torn apart communities and families.
  • Consumer prices over the past 12 months jumped 7.5%, the highest since 1982, as many pay raises were swallowed up.
  • Measures of happiness have hit a bottom, with fewer Americans saying they are very happy in the 2021 General Social Survey than ever before in five decades of asking them.
  • There are other terrible metrics for Biden, which speak to the challenges his party will face come the November midterms:
  • Fifty-six percent of Americans say Biden’s first year in office was a failure, according to NPR polling.
  • Fifty-eight percent say Biden’s America is worse off than they were one year ago, according to Fox News polling.
  • Another fifty percent believe they have less money in their pockets, a Fox News poll showed.

  • That way, you look silly and you don’t get to hug other people goodbye. Brilliant work, as always, government.
  • There was plenty of mockery to go around on social media.
  • “Here we are. 2022,” Amanda House tweeted. “Wear masks during Nuclear War.”
  • “Socially distance…in the event of nuclear fallout? I’m sorry, what?” KDbell replied.
  • “It is the best time to get vaccinated if you haven’t already done so,” one user remarked. “They’ll mark your death [due to] Covid and not nuclear radiation.”
  • “Mf worried about covid in a nuclear war,” another snarked.
  • “No mean tweets though, and mostly peaceful nuclear fallout,” one person said sarcastically.
  • The Biden presidency has definitely taken quite the turn when it is updating nuclear fallout guidance to include wearing masks and social distancing. This administration can’t end soon enough.

-Seizing evidence and neutralizing US DoD funded bio-weapons labs in Ukraine
-Rattling NATO member countries so badly they are considering actually paying their 2% fees
-Destroying the slush-fund money-laundering racket of Biden, Romney, Pelosi, Hillary et al that is Ukraine
-Exposing a ton of false propaganda Fake News media videos recycled from practically a decade ago
-Dismantling piece by piece the NWO dream of Poppy Bush

And this will all be inextricably linked to exposing election corruption in the US and the other countries

And we haven’t even gotten to Durham

We’re not even two months into 2022 and, just as I said, it’s going to be the greatest year yet for MAGA and the deplorables

Follow the money, it’s the key.
What is Pelosi’s net worth by way of one example. Why coincidentally is her memory apparently going?
Cover for possible future indictment to plead what?
What if John M never had surgery and that was a cover for a future out if needed against prosecution?
Why did Soros transfer his bulk public funds to a NP? Note this doesn’t include massive slush funds that are pulled by several high ups.
Why did Soros’ son have several meetings with Canadian PM and how is that related to Clinton’s?
Can you rely on being able to board a plane and fly away?
Why is MS13 a priority _ nobody got this.
Could people pay such gangs to kill opponents and why / how to insulate against exposure?
The truth is mind blowing and cannot fully be exposed.
Also many are thinking from one point of view, US only, this evil is embedded globally. US is the first domino.
Have faith.
