Bright Brief - FED to the Wolves

FED to the Wolves
That headline was published by ZeroHedge this week, and sets us up nicely for the topic at hand for today’s Bright Brief.
Ain’t Game Theory a bitch?
Some weeks ago, during the course of my occasional ramblings on Truth Social, I was commenting on one of the major inflection points I see coming in the 2022 Cognitive Front, which is another term I’ve been throwing around lately in reference to the psychological aspects of the Shadow War—that between sovereignty on both a personal and national scale, and collectivist globalism.
Many in this movement have pointed to the fact that things, well, they aren’t really going so well for [them] of late, from a public optics perspective. Foreign policy has morphed from having a look of vague and confusing (to normies) antagonism during the Trump Administration to pitiful desperation, incompetence and inaction during the Biden Admin. Culturally, the United States is still in the midst of a social divide on the basis of race-based politics and entertainment, gender identity confusion—also known as the war on the English language and all manner of logic, reason and consistency—public education, and the role of government and government-adjacent institutions in our society.
More important than any of those negatives, however, the thickest bit of egg the current “rulers” have on their faces comes in the form of Inflation, which is raging out of control, most notably in the areas of food and energy—also known as the two most important components of human consumption and societal stability. You see, while folks like us get riled up about government malfeasance, pharmaceutical corruption, a two-tiered justice system and the odd bit of human trafficking, much of that, unfortunately, escapes the notice of your average 40-hour per week American, living paycheck to paycheck.
What does not escape their notice, however, is the price of, well, damn near everything.
Now, back to that inflection point I was rambling about some weeks ago. As we near the 2022 Midterms, I believe one of the key narrative battles we will see play out in the national media is, for a change, not going to be between “our” side and [theirs,] but rather between the Biden Admin, its Controllers and its corporate media defenders, and the economy itself, best represented most literally by the Federal Reserve bank.
You see, when the lender of last resort becomes the excuse of last resort, you will know that our collective enemy has grown desperate indeed. After all, few institutions have been more responsible for expanding and solidifying their control over the populations of once-sovereign nations. By saddling us with crippling debt as a fact of life we’re all meant to calmly orbit around—or be crushed under—they have been able to keep us on a perpetual treadmill of struggle and servitude.
In the current narrative, inflation has gone from non-existent, to transitory … to the FED’s fault. And this isn’t Trump and company saying it. It’s the very politicians and agency heads who kicked all of this nonsense off in the first place.
On the one hand, the Biden Admin is correct. The Federal Reserve IS to blame for record inflation, and the continued exposure of that fact to the normie hivemind can only be counted a good thing.
On the other hand, let those of us in this truth community not forget the fact that the initial mass spending package meant to address the disruption of the global scamdemic came under the Trump Admin.
Now, this either means that Donald J. Trump is as foolish, irresponsible and corrupt as them … or, far more likely, part of Operation Warp Speed included a planned, long-term demolition of the Federal Reserve central banking apparatus and its iron grip on the micro and macro-scale production of our society.
With this reading of events, the short-term economic damage that will result in the dismantling of said fiat debt-based monetary system will be significant, and possibly even severe in some sectors. That said, Trump accelerated a train that was already screaming toward the end of the tracks they had laid out for us, departing publicly before the very, very public “crash.”
I do not think this happenstance.
The biggest takeaway for me from this Dem and MSM turn on the Federal Reserve bank is that this is the biggest sign yet of a larger D party death spiral. The public might tune out politics as often as they can—and who can blame them—but when said public is suffering under the yoke of abject tyranny or obvious incompetence, the last thing they want to see is a circular firing squad, wherein one faction of the entrenched Deep State begins passing the fiat buck onto the next.
You see, even if the aforementioned general public doesn’t keep abreast of all the pitiful and infuriating happenings on the Executive and Legislative stages, they are absolutely aware of how fiscally irresponsible the current leadership has been, proxy or otherwise. There is a reason Biden’s public approval ratings—published in the MSM, as well—have hit record and near-record lows each of the last few months. To them, if Trump’s stimulus package was seen as a necessary stop gap during the height of the COVID scamdemic, Biden has been seen as pouring gasoline on the dying coals of a fire that had already all but burned out.
The only reason, optically, this Admin has not spent even MORE money taxpayers haven’t even earned yet is because they have been blocked from passing their most extreme spending packages by two moderate Dems in the Senate over and over again, a trend that has received a LOT of MSM, and thus normiesphere attention.
It could be argued that the Senatorial red line represented by Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin is representative of a more literal red line relating to continuity of government procedures. Patriots may have accelerated [their] exposure, but I do not believe they’ve accelerated our doom.
(Maybe Patel Patriot could do some digging into these two “moderates” and see who they’ve been taking meetings with in recent years.)
Either way, there is no doubt in my mind that this is by design.
Optically, the Dems control two of the three branches of the U.S. government, and they ostensibly control the two that have the biggest immediate impact on the general public, with the Supreme Court acting as a final stop gap to remedy—not prevent—abuses of power and governmental overreach.
Why, then, have they only been able to get things done that have irrevocably destroyed their reputation among the very public they need to endear themselves to—or at least mislead—on the doorstep of the most significant Midterm election cycle … possibly ever?
Optics are important, and theirs are less than stellar at present.
Expect rhetoric—both Dem and MSM—against the FED to pick up steam in the coming weeks and months, as we race toward the midterms and as they tumble, ass over heel as they flail about wildly, trying to find purchase in a crumbling cliff of their own making.
They blame the FED not because it was a part of their plan. They blame the FED because, when a liar runs out of the lies he’s gilded himself in, he must resort to telling truths he used them to bury in the first place.
What we’re witnessing is the beginning of their final game of economic musical chairs. And when the music does stop, in the form of a very real, very dramatic crash or near-crash of the global financial system, all eyes will be on all of [them,] while Trump, Putin and those who would rebuild from said system crash will be waiting on the sidelines, or, more appropriate, circling like carrion birds.

Well. Only if you’re on the wrong side of it.
