April 4th Show; The petrodollar myth, demagoguery, and the controlled patriot media

I have uploaded a new show podcast for April 4, 2018. Click here to go to the show archives page to listen or you can listen on the link below.  I have included links to relevant articles and media on the Show Archives page.  The latest show is on the top of the page.

-Things are looking to unravel over the next 12-24 months, but from what I can determine most in the alt-and patriot-media are going to get it wrong.
-The concept of the petrodollar is a misguided concept. Despite the dollar-bearish activity of the Fed balance sheet unwinding the dollar is supported here.
-Chinese renminbi was 1.23% of total global currency reserves in 2017. The US dollar was about 63%; barely changed from a decade ago. Hardly the evidence provided by the dollar-bashers.
-It is impossible for the ChiCom government to make the yuan a reserve currency. China is a centrally-managed, export-driven economy, so there are not enough yuan outside China to make an impact on the world’s financial markets.
-Foreigners don’t even want to own the yuan. ChiCom doesn’t want foreigners to own it either, because it would lose control over its monetary fixing.
-the US is already the world’s largest energy producer and by next year the US will be the world’s largest oil producer. So much for the petrodollar going down in flames. The increased amount of oil the US is going to pump out of the ground over the next several years would make China blush.
-Until one recognizes the real adversary he or she will continue to make the wrong financial decisions.
-Our adversaries are manufactured for us. Our real ones remain in the shadows.
-Change agents in our midst. They are doing an effective job dismantling movements from within.
-Trump’s tweets of Amazon are very beneficial to Amazon as it redirects us from the real problems Amazon poses to the economy to ones of mindless political and relatively trivial rancor.
-Trump is a change agent on par with the ones from Cointelpro. He is a liberal democrat from NYC and was a big supporter of President Clinton and NY Senator Clinton. He uses his supporters as a means to an end.
-Trump is just carrying out orders to help the elites manufacture confrontation. The result from these manufactured confrontations will be very real and will adversely impact his supporters more than any other demographic group.
