Anna refused to answer the question. I asked and asked five times and she did not say a word. The audience was shocked. Finally, the moderator, Walker Todd, then an officer in the US Federal Reserve System, walked up to the microphone saying you are absolutely right in what you say David, and asked for the next question. Walker was a brilliant fellow who worked at the Federal Reserve System, and may say parenthetically that I wrote for Paul Volcker his anti-inflation plan in 1979 that we at the deep state ordered him to implement, who understood that the gold standard was unworkable with usury as the gold could not create its own liquidity. Those who are reading this who have the interest should consult the writings of John Maynard Keynes’ teacher at Cambridge Alfred Marshall who seems to have been the only academic in the world that understood this. The Bible is correct on usury described by Aristotle as against natural law as the gold coin cannot procreate. In simple terms, if there are 187,000 tons of gold above ground in the world, and I lend it to you at 10% interest, the interest and principal cannot be paid at the end of the year as the interest or usury portion in gold does not exist. Karl Marx wrote that this was solved by paper money that was transubstantiated into gold, or the jealous God of money to use his own words, in that the paper money was gold even though it was not visible.
The military analyst Scott Ritter explains below that the US is not capable of defending the Ukraine and the Russian defeat of the Ukraine after the disaster of NATO in Afghanistan would end NATO once and for all:
By throwing his weight behind Kiev’s NATO bid while on a visit to the country, Austin is “playing politics,” and while his remark might be for Ukraine’s domestic consumption it risks ratcheting up tensions “at a time when that’s the last thing either Russia or NATO need,” former US Marine Corps Intelligence Officer Scott Ritter told RT.
Ritter noted that until now “there has been a hesitancy on part of both the United States and NATO to encourage Ukraine joining NATO because of the ramifications” that both Kiev and NATO may face in the aftermath.
Since Ukraine cannot win a hypothetical “shooting war” with Russia, and the US “is not in the position to come to their aid,” any potential showdown can spell doom for the military alliance, Ritter argued.
“NATO will face defeat and this could be the end of NATO. I don’t know if NATO can take another defeat, another embarrassment like they had in Afghanistan,” he said.
Former Pentagon security analyst, Michael Maloof, argued that Austin’s rhetoric and promises he seems to be giving Ukraine shows that Washington “has not learnt anything from the lessons going back to 2008, when the US was trying to push Georgia and Ukraine into NATO.”
Maloof pointed out that the Biden administration has also been courting Georgia, another country that borders on Russia. Austin, who visited Georgia on Monday as part of his three-nation tour to the Black Sea region, tried “to excite the Georgians and give them a false promise that they will be able to increase their military assistance and undertake military maneuvers,” Maloof said, adding that such strategy already backfired in the past, resulting in the war in South Ossetia in 2008.
