The SDR: The Same Demented Regime

From Mike Krieger of KAM LP

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
- Major General Smedley Darlington Butler

The Constitution supposes, what the history of all governments demonstrates,  that the executive is the branch of government most interested in war, and most prone to it. It has accordingly with studied care, vested the question of war in the legislature.
- James Madison

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

The SDR: The Same Demented Regime

It’s fascinating to watch things play out as we rapidly approach the final rounds in the end game of the great game.  The great game is of course the never-ending global struggle for power and dominance.  The current entrenched powers that be have been in their positions for a very long time and they have no intention of giving up that role.  What the moral and decent percentage of humanity need to understand in no uncertain terms is that these folks and their minions have no conscience.  They could care less how many starve to death, get blown to bits in war or waste their lives away in front of the television set watching Snookie on the Jersey Shore.  In fact, I am certain that they totally get off on these things.  Degrading humanity into an animal-like state clearly appears to be their aphrodisiac.  Notice how the media encourages people to go out and trample each other for a $2 waffle maker on Black Friday.  The scenes of people running into Wal-Mart or Best Buy in the early morning hours when they should be at home with their families having conversation after Thanksgiving dinner reminds me of scenes of cattle being shuffled into a sorting pen.  Actually if you look at this video the cattle appear much more civilized (just go a minute and a half in).  I think the second step after one sees the insane matrix we are trapped in is to free yourself from it mentally and emotionally.  It is the mental and emotional control that they are really after.  That is the most powerful and effective tool of control so don’t give them the satisfaction.  Try to buy local and support your communities.  It may cost more but in that case just buy less.  You will feel good about it.  More specifically, anything encouraged by the mainstream media, like spending money you don’t have on superfluous items made in China with slave labor and sold to you at a giant tax dodging corporation should be avoided if possible.

With that out of the way, on to the main topic of this paragraph.  The good ol’ SDR.  I will tell you one thing right now.  When TPTB progress to talking about IMF rescues and SDRs we are the end of the line boys and girls.  This is the LAST play they have in the conventional playbook.  For those that are unaware, this is what the SDR is according to the IMF itself: 

The SDR is an international reserve asset, created by the IMF in 1969 to supplement its member countries' official reserves. Its value is based on a basket of four key international currencies, and SDRs can be exchanged for freely usable currencies. With a general SDR allocation that took effect on August 28 and a special allocation on September 9, 2009, the amount of SDRs increased from SDR 21.4 billion to around SDR 204 billion (equivalent to about $328.3 billion, converted using the rate of August 31, 2011).  For an SDR factsheet go here

So here is what I think they may try to do.  The guys who really pull the strings, whoever they may be, absolutely understand everything.  They know fiat money that they can create and distribute at will is the source of total power and they will never willingly give that up.  They also have known for a long time that the fiat dollar reserve floating exchange rate system was inevitably going to blow up on itself.  It has become readily apparent since 2008 that we are at that fork in the road, which is why the whole SDR concept has gotten more play.  It seems that the intent of TPTB is to somehow shift the SDR into the world’s reserve asset.  The purpose of this might be to devalue all of the world’s major Western currencies at once while also shifting the blame away from sovereign governments and Central Bankers.  At the very least, it would be a way to achieve a massive stealth devaluation of the U.S. dollar.  For example, if the SDRs were suddenly declared the world’s reserve asset and were therefore needed to conduct global trade in commodities for example, the dollar’s purchasing power would plunge.  We could no longer just create dollars out of thin air and directly buy the world’s resources.  We might need to exchange our national currency into the new reserve asset (SDRs) to then buy things.  So there would be direct and drastic consequences if we continued to great create unlimited dollars, just like all other countries around the world face today.  While this is actually the way it should be, the problem is that this is a bankster plan at the highest levels.  First, they would introduce this SDR and then once faith in national Western currencies’ purchasing power cratered and faith was lost TPTB would use that as an excuse to eliminate all national currencies and move to a global fiat currency that they of course control the distribution of.  Problem, reaction, solution.  This is the central planning bankster’s ultimate wet dream.  Remember this is exactly what they have done with the euro. It is no secret that they knew from the beginning that the euro currency in its current form would blow up.  That was part of the calculation.  Once the crisis hit, they would then consolidate power in a Euro fiscal Union with centralized control of everything.  If they pull that off successfully the next stop will be the global currency, with the bait being the SDR.  This should be quite transparent at this stage if you are paying attention. 

Will it Work?                             

So above I have outlined what I think is the ultimate prize of TPTB.  In this paragraph I want to address whether I think their demented plan for world government and world currency can or will be achieved.  My answer is NO.  First of all, they are having a hard enough time with Europe.  Sure they have installed their little puppet technocrats into positions of power in Greece and Italy but all indications point to the fact that this is taking a lot longer than they want.  Time is NOT on their side.  I say this because every day people become more informed and more upset about the “agenda.”  To some extent they do need people to be asleep sheep in order to pull off this giant power grab and more importantly to keep it in place \ for an extended period of time.  It is my belief that they must pull off the consolidation of Europe first and then move along to the U.S.  However, let’s say for the sake of argument that they panic and attempt to go straight to the SDR.  What do you think they reaction is going to be when the public is told that all of a sudden there is a new digital global resevre currency called Special Drawing Rights that is created by the IMF and oh by the way a slice of bread costs $20.  All hell will break loose.  Although very few people have an in depth understanding of how the global monetary ponzi scheme system works, an increasingly large number now get that it is rooted in bankster fraud and have had enough.  Good luck trying to issue SDRs and devlauing the dollar.  It’s a non starter.  That said, the one way they still might try would be to crash the entire markets into oblivion (remember central bankers have TOTAL power to do this at this stage).  That way they would get people begging for central bank printing.  This woiuld then destroy the national currencies and then they would come in with the global currency solution.  Just something to bear in mind…

So this is where it gets dangerous.  If I am correct in my logic above they might realize that they have exhausted their conventional options.  This means the playbook shifts to the unconventional.  This probably means war.  This is why the rhetoric is heating up against Iran right now.  If they cannot get their way via conventional means I believe they have no problem whatsoever in wiping out a vast percentage of the world’s population to get their way.  That is why I put up the quotes at the top.  People need to undertand and understand right now that any global conflict will not be for the reasons we are told.  It will be TPTB way of reseting things and shifting blame away from where it belongs; them the control freak central planners.  We are close to the end of the road and the choices for the power struture are now increasingly limited thus they are likely to move to more desperate measures.

These clowns know we increasingly know what we are up to therefore they are putting on the clampdown behind the scenes in many ways. 

Indefinite detention:  Gotta love how this old fascist John McCain quotes John Adams in supporting a bill that allows indefinite detention of American citiziens WITHOUT a trial (it passed). As I have been writing for years, Congress and the elite see all citizens as potential terrorists for calling them out on their crimes.

Time Magzine:  Ever wonder why Americas seems so braindead?  The media.  Check out the cover story by region.,9263,7601111205,00.html 

Hank Paulson:  Another crony capitalist crook that robbed Americans continues to be a free man.  Why?  He worked at Goldman Sachs of course.  Check out how he passed along inisde info to his fellow Goldman crony capitalist friends.  The game is totally rigged.

Well, I might have garnered 2 junks for my comment, but those were from the stupids.

If you really think that R.P. will be allowed to be president, you're a fucking delusional nutcase.


Hint: Count the $$$. As I stated elsewhere, $$$ = election.When RP can either a) Raise about a billion dollars in campaign funds or b) mount a successful insurrection through the military that support him, then he'll get elected. Otherwise: just no. NO. You fucking retards, NO.



Now get off my porch, you silly AJones fan.

You are delusional... you think you know who junked you and you think you know anything about me?

And you read things that aren't even there... Try reading the actual letters for once. When placed in a certain order, they convey real meaning.  Trust me, there isn't anything between the lines and, if you see something there, you should check to see if you skipped your medication.

I'M pretty sure you are clinically delusional. 

Hint: I never said anything about RP being elected.  I pointed out, factually, that he was being ignored and, in spite of your opinion about him, ought not be lumped in with the other nitwits who think Africa is a country and that the Taliban is in Libya.

p.s. when I decide to visit your porch, do I still just need to follow the banjo music?

You think that Ron Paul, a congressman for how many years, and with no real Corporate support has a chance at  the vaunted prize of the "President of the United States of America" if only the MSM would stop ignoring him? And you think that "being ignored" is the only barrier to his election?!?

Does anyone see the endgame playing out something like I do?  Where the BRICs nations are moving to gold and the western "democracies" are moving to SDRs?  This can't end well and this seems to be a Highlander type scenario evolving ("there can be only one!").

Sunset chaser's picture

My guess is it's certainly possible, as these kinds of things are generally accompanied by extreme shifts in wealth distribution.

No way does Germany advocate printing money without having already solved the debt crises, because it's widely accepted there that money printing caused the Weimar hyperinflation which led to Hitler's rise to power and WWII.

That's the rationale I'm trading on. Adding more deep puts today, as I fully expect a huge plunge imminently.

viahj's picture

except that the western nations have a whole lot more gold than the BRICs do (if you can believe their official numbers).  SDRs are the western choice because you can't pring gold to inflate, however i do believe that the SDR basket will include the Yuan (once China has enough gold to have a sway with the gold big boys).

Never suggest a conspiracy when willful ignorance is possible.....

I think the author gives the "people in charge" too much credit.   These people are not smart.  I was watching Warren Buffett humping Becky Quick's leg the other day and was taken back with how slow this man's thinking process is.... People like him are not smart.  They just lived during a time of great monetary expansion. (aka burning fiat currencies)  

Also, the issue is not one of "who is in charge", but rather generational.  Baby Boomers sold the future for a big asset inflation run, and basically tried to "eat" their young... Good for them!   Their little retirement dreams will collapse in their '80s while their pissed children will ship them off to a concentration (aka nursing home) camps...


In short, we have seen this before in the 1930's... It is not skilled or intentional.   It is the side affect of short term mindsets driven by 4 year election cycles...

>>>Never suggest a conspiracy when willful ignorance is possible.....<<<

That has some credence.

Often a loose association/alliance of a perceived common interest is enough to create the appearance of a rock solid conspiracy.

Often that loose association/alliance crumbles in the end when the situation gets pushed to the extreme.

They might try an SDR...that doesn't mean earthlings will accept it.

It will take an alien invasion (literally) to make something like this palatable.

Some band somewhere knew the score when they suggested that the grey men jump from the towers of wealth. Pro tip: You'll never meet the smart cookies; most aren't even in it for the big money (SCANDALOUS).


Ideology and 'humanity' (Sein Und Zeit) has a far larger pull than you'd imagine. Cash is important.... up until other things like breeding, genes and inter-generational continuity come into play. Remember: "Be Excellent to one another".

'...where is the world panic?'

Truth is you won't see it happen. It'll rise up in waves of outrage and then recede. Entirely too many believe in cataclysmic 'trigger' event that changes everything. I'm not saying that isn't possible, only improbable. So far average Americans have given or rather, had taken from them, little in way of disturbing day-to-day life. But there is always a tipping point that may be 'invisible' to most.

The soft spot is oil price. Gas prices kill the consumer faster than anything. When we reach that point it'll get to the 'endgame'.

"Anyone who clings to the historically untrue — and thoroughly immoral — doctrine that "violence never solves anything" I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms."

-Lt. Col. Jean V. Dubois (Ret.)
Starship Troopers, Page 26

We could no longer just create dollars out of thin air and directly buy the world’s resources. We might need to exchange our national currency into the new reserve asset (SDRs) to then buy  use our superior military to kill people and take their things.

Mike, you are aware of the size of America's military budget?  SDR  for oil just isn't going to happen.  The oil producing nations (except Iran, Iraq, and Libya) already "elected" the petrol dollar, and recent history indicates they will stick with it.  Iran will either come around, or not.

I'm not saying it is right or wrong (watch the video below), I'm just saying it is.

I'm not sure you'll see Mike putting the military budget into his calculations. Out of his jurisdiction. Few can comment on geopolitics among finance gurus and I'm not sure Mike even qualifies there.

The big question is do the intelligence agencies/military study the impact finance has and how it imperils security in general?

"By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day," says the report, which has a foreword by a senior commander, General James N Mattis.
