I suspect the Chinese told them that they will no longer buy our T Bills , and that their plan for replacing the U.S. Dollar as the Worlds Reserve Currency with the Yuan is going foward .

is it or is it not illegal for senators to be contacting with foreign goverments under the logan act.

The Senators need to tell us what's going on!

Honestly, I don't think the majority of countries in the world want the Yuan as the world's reserve currency imho. I think the majority of the world would accept SDRs over the Yuan. But I believe the international banksters will go through with it anyway, and that might make our country threaten military action. This could be how WWIII starts.

Either way nobody really knows because they won’t tell us.

senators are not us little people and dont forget they write the law.

I'd assume Senators are considered "authorized personnel."

At least they are giving us silence rather than lying to us... (kidding)

Don't worry, I'm actually far more cynical than what I sound like.

Definitely, you can feel the build up, but they won't tell us little people what's up. It's pretty messed up.

China has already been chosen as the world’s next empire unless there is another world war. Every empire since Rome has collapsed due to their debts that accumulated trying to take over the world.

I said this in another thread:


That's true, entire countries don't collapse because of their economic woes, but empires sure do. The countries themselves always find a way to continue on as they should have in the first place.

But Rome had basically the same problem we are having now;


Many historians argue that the rapid growth of the empire over a relatively short time and the economic inflation that followed contributed substantially to the empire's decay. Due to the vast size of the empire, it required an enormous budget to maintain the infrastructure necessary for its survival, including roads (essential for communication, transportation, and the moving of armies) and aqueducts (many cities relied on the water thus provided). Moreover, the empire faced enemies on all sides due to its expansion into their territories, and huge sums of silver and gold were required to keep up its armies. To cope with both problems, the empire was forced to raise taxes frequently, and also to adulterate its coins, causing inflation to skyrocket into hyperinflation. This in turn caused major economic stresses that some historians regard as central in Rome's decline.

en.wikipedia.org...

As did the Ottoman Empire which collapsed because it owed a majority of its debt to Rothschild owned-European Banks.

Then it was the British Empire's turn to conquer as much of the world as they could until they became so financially constrained by policing their empire they took on enormous amounts of debt to the up and coming banking hub, the U.S.

So, now it's the U.S.' turn to attempt world domination and assume mass amounts of debt, and then it will be China's turn.

It's quite interesting that the Banks are always are the center of it all. First, they build up empires and allow them to indebt themselves to the next blossoming country, then they jump ship when the time's right, let the former empire crumble and start all over again.

I believe as soon as the British relinquished control of Hong Kong back into the hands of the Chinese in 1997, it signaled China as the next empire destination. Hong Kong is even one of those special city-states like D.C., London, and Vatican City that doesn’t have to follow the same political rules as the rest of the country they reside in.


China is definitely the next up and coming empire. Do you think our war-hungry government and corporations will go down without a fight?

There was also a thread awhile back, which I can't find, about a huge hedge fund CEO stating that markets like "authoritative governments" because they are more stable.

And to think of all those heroes who fought and died in ww2.
What was their sacrifice for?
All this may come about....unless.
This civil uprising in the middle east may be contagious.
Let's hope it is.
Here's to America growing a pair.

If they were secret you wouldn't know about them and their priority isn't to rush out and tell the general public without discussing first whatever information happened at the meeting.

They surely will be asked what happened and what the response will be so they need time to figure that out.

Really guys quit being silly about things.
