It reached $33 trillion on Sept. 15, 2023, and $32 trillion on June 15, 2023, hitting this accelerated pace. Before that, the $1 trillion move higher from $31 trillion took about eight months…

U.S. debt, which is the amount of money the federal government borrows to cover operating expenses, now stands at nearly $34.4 billion, as of Wednesday. Bank of America investment strategist Michael Hartnett believes the 100-day pattern will remain intact with the move from $34 trillion to $35 trillion… ‘Little wonder “debt debasement” trades closing in on all-time highs, i.e. gold $2077/oz, bitcoin $67734,’ he wrote in a note Thursday…  Spot gold is currently hovering around $2,084 an ounce, while bitcoin was recently around $61,443. The cryptocurrency in February closed out its best month since 2020, briefly trading above $64,000 on Wednesday before pulling back. Inflows into crypto funds are on course for a “blowout year,” with an annualized inflow of $44.7 billion so far this year, Hartnett noted…  Moody’s Investors Service lowered its ratings outlook on the U.S. government to negative from stable in November due to the rising risks of the country’s fiscal strength…  ‘In the context of higher interest rates, without effective fiscal policy measures to reduce government spending or increase revenues,’ the agency said. ‘Moody’s expects that the US’ fiscal deficits will remain very large, significantly weakening debt affordability’.” Comment: I wonder if Treasury has considered the new program proposed by Javier Milei?Amazon introduces tall humanoid robots to warehousesAmazon is experimenting with humanoid robot technology, ● Digit, a two-legged ​robot, can grasp and lift boxes, Amazon said Digit will work with humans, and it doesn’t plan to fully automate Amazon – https://supercarblondie.com/amazon-two-meter-tall-humanoid-robots-work-warehouses/ – “Humanoid robots have descended on Amazon warehouses in a move to automate their systems… ‘Digit’ is in the midst of a test period as Amazon experiment with the capabilities of the tech… It’s been tasked initially with spending time shifting empty tote boxes on the floor. The humanoid robot was developed by Amazon-backed, Oregon-based startup Agility Robotics, and it can walk and crouch…  Digit is 5ft 9in (175cm), weighs 143lb (65kg), and can carry up to 35lb (16kg) in hands that can both grasp and lift…  From the fastest humanoid robot to Tesla’s Optimus, the world of robots is currently making strides…  Amazon is experimenting with a humanoid robot as the technology company increasingly seeks to automate its warehouses…  ​With a workforce of almost 1​.5​ million human​s, there have been concerns raised that Digit will displace human employees from their roles…  However, in stark contrast to these fears, Tye Brady, chief technologist at Amazon Robotics, claims that while it will render some jobs redundant, robots would also create new roles…  According to Brady, Digit is only designed to eliminate menial, mundane and repetitive tasks, but this doesn’t mean Amazon will require fewer staff or lead to cut jobs…  He also firmly insisted that human staff are “irreplaceable” in the company’s operation and they would work collaboratively with Digit…  Last but certainly not least, he also added that Amazon warehouses will not be fully automated…  Amazon announced it was deploying a robotic system called Sequoia at one of its Houston warehouses…  Sequoia is designed to speed up deliveries by helping identify and store inventory 75 percent faster…  It’s hoped this will reduce order processing time of orders by up to 25 percent.”Bundeswehr Wiretap Bombshell – German Generals Exposed Planning Kerch Strike – by Simplicius the Thinker – “https://simplicius76.substack.com/p/bundeswehr-wiretap-bombshell-german – “A bombshell wiretap leak has set the intelligence and geopolitical world ablaze today, revealing high ranking members of the German Bundeswehr openly discussing plans to supply the Taurus missiles and help Ukraine destroy Russia’s Kerch Bridge… Many are understandably pinning the leak on Russia’s GRU, but it seems just as—if not more—plausible that it was leaked by German insiders themselves in order to thwart the plans of their own deepstate establishment which is clearly bent on starting WWIII… Before anyone questions the authenticity, let us first begin with the validation by Der Spiegel, who rules it as most likely legit:

Spiegel writes about the authenticity of the audio recording of German officers discussing the attack on the Crimean Bridge… “After initial analysis, it is presumed that the recording of the meeting is authentic. According to the initial assessment, the possibility of forgery using AI is largely ruled out,” the publication reports… Here are the most damning snippets: (See source for 5 embedded audios of German planners scheming) – Here is the full recording for those interested—though, caveat, it’s an auto-machine translation and may have irregularities: And here is a transcript of it provided by RT’s Margarita Simonyan, for those who prefer reading—though you’ll have to do a machine translation in your browser: https://vk.com/@m_s_simonyan-rasshifrovka-razgovora-vysokopostavlennyh-oficerov-bundesverIt’s clear that there is an ongoing internal revolt in Europe by the last remaining sane faction against the hardliners pushing WWIII. This is evident by the fact that this entire pressure wave of ‘leaks’ suddenly coincided together from a variety of directions, which included Scholz himself outing British involvement in the war – In light of Scholz’s disclosures, a slew of revelations have come to light about NATO’s true involvement in the war:

But what’s more, according to the Le Monde article (left)—though it’s behind a paywall—France is considering sending a contingent of special forces to Ukraine specifically to create a “strategic dilemma” for Russia: The French government allegedly views such a troop deployment as a way of posing a “strategic dilemma” for Moscow, the paper said, adding that it could “constrain” Russia’s targeting and strike capabilities. In particular, it may prove to be “essential” ahead of the arrival of US-made F-16 fighter jets, scheduled to take place later this year, the French daily added… Keep in mind, ostensibly, they’re referring to a small contingent of troops placed somewhere in the rear to ‘train’ Ukrainian soldiers. But the ‘strategic dilemma’ part is very interesting—what could they possibly mean by that? – The article makes some interesting revelations. For instance, it seems to suggest that the timed release of all the current hints is a precisely choreographed CIA campaign meant specifically to give signals to Moscow: US intelligence services’s controlled transparency operation – known as “campaigning” – is part of their plan to reinforce a form of strategic ambiguity that was initiated by Monday’s meeting of allies in Paris, several sources close to the matter told Le Monde. Although the US was not involved in the precise wording of what Macron was going to say and may have been surprised by his remarks, the prospect of sending Western troops to Ukraine had been talked about in advance. The US had also sent a representative to Paris. The growing pressure from Moscow on Europe’s eastern flank is worrying the US as much as the other participants.

On the aspect of ‘strategic dilemma’ they note specifically:

But here is the final and most important paragraph of the entire article, which ties directly into things I’ve been writing about and predicting here from the very beginning: Paris wants to provide Kyiv training in surface-to-air defense in particular, which has been targeted by the Russians. The presence of French soldiers, or those of other nationalities, would potentially secure certain areas of Ukrainian territory and severely restrict Moscow’s current unfettered bombing. An allied presence would also prove essential to the promised arrival of American-built F-16s in Ukraine in 2024… And that, folks, is what gives the true game away… Recall my earliest predictions about NATO coming in to ‘secure’ certain critical areas of West Ukraine from Russian takeover at the final hour when all else fails and it seems certain that Russia will overrun the AFU. I spoke specifically about Odessa, with the 101st and 82nd coming to dogpile and squat on it simply in the hopes that Russia will cautiously refuse to send troops, in fear of ‘clashing’ with NATO forces and starting WWIII… It seems the French have got the same idea, though it may be for a different area or areas—hoping that by simply placing troops there, Russia will hesitate from striking the critical infrastructure for fear of killing NATO soldiers… Interestingly, however, soon after French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne rejected this possibility:

https://www.rt.com/news/593559-no-combat-troops-ukraine-france/No combat troops will be sent to Ukraine, French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne told Radio France Inter on Friday. Earlier, the nation’s president Emmanuel Macron told journalists that NATO could entertain such a possibility in the future… Paris would not risk a direct conflict between Moscow and the US-led bloc, Sejourne said when asked to comment on Macron’s remarks. “Everything we do is to avoid war” between Russia and NATO, the minister said, adding that the French government did not want to increase the level of anxiety among its citizens… A new poll from Le Figaro likewise showed 68% of French citizens do not approve of troop deployment to Ukraine…”

Is the Government Now in the Elder Abuse Business – by Janet Phelen – https://www.activistpost.com/2024/03/is-the-government-now-in-the-elder-abuse-business.html – “Dean Sallas leans against his current home, a 2005 Toyota mini van, and jokes about the sub-zero Chicago winter weather. He doesn’t seem to fit the general profile of a homeless guy or an elder abuse victim. The former tend to have substance abuse or mental health issues, while the latter are often typified as confused and vulnerable women who fall prey to online scams… In fact, Sallas worked in real estate and garnered a small fortune before he fell prey to institutionalized US government abuse… Cheerful and not prone to complaining, Dean, age 86, has been rendered homeless by his abuser. Dean is one of a growing number of individuals whose abuse has been inflicted by his own government… The abuse report was filed by a social worker with the federal government. Delia de Avila works as head social worker with the homeless vets program at Lovell Veteran’s Hospital in North Chicago, Illinois. During a lengthy conversation with Dean earlier this year, she announced she would file an APS abuse report… Samantha Richardson with Adult Protective Services in Skokie was assigned the APS report. Her response was swift and aggressive. Morning found Samantha banging on the window of the car in which Dean spent the night. But when Richardson discovered that Dean Sallas was being abused by actions involving another government agency, the Cook County Public Guardian, which was aided and abetted in the abuse by a state court judge, Shauna Boliker, her investigation came to a screeching halt… According to Dean Sallas, Richardson told him she was told to “stand down” and that APS would not investigate a sister agency. Richardson hastily got off the phone when this reporter called her to verify her statement and from that point on, will not return this reporter’s calls… Due to illegal actions approved by Judge Shauna Boliker, Sallas was deprived the natural protections of Illinois law, including the marital property statute, which would bar the Public Guardian from seizing any income or property in which Dean holds an interest. Dean Sallas is only in Boliker’s court due to the fact that his wife, Amy, was put under a guardianship by Cook County Public Guardian and removed by force from the Skokie home she shared with her husband of over fifty years. Not content to interfere in their marriage, the Public Guardian denied Dean the ability to contact his wife by phone or through visitation. It should be noted that there are no verified abuse reports concerning Dean’s treatment of his wife Amy is currently residing in Belmont Village in Buffalo Grove, Illinois… As a result of Boliker’s failure to adhere to Illinois Statute 755 ILCS 5/11a – 22, which makes it a criminal act for a bank to honor a loan which has been signed by an alleged incapacitated person, the Public Guardian stopped paying on a home mortgage that never should have been processed, signed by Amy, and having taken nearly all the couple’s marital property and funds, summarily foreclosed on their Skokie home. Dean is now homeless and living in his car… Boliker’s free-wheeling tendencies to ignore Illinois law and to side with state authorized guardians are not unknown to the powers that be in Illinois. Her actions in other cases, such as the Kumpkin and Pratt guardianships, have also achieved some notice. What is of some concern is that reports of her questionable financial transactions, such as lodged here have not resulted in any modification of her behavior. Indeed, Boliker appears to be bullet-proof… While the feds have ostensibly taken an interest in elder abuse matters, a review of their actions reveals that the federal government has taken a wide detour around abusers who are state agencies and/or judges. While the “official” definition of abuse, codified in the Elder Justice Act, defines this broadly as “(1) “Abuse”, the infliction of physical, sexual, or emotional injury or harm including financial exploitation by any person, firm, or corporation and bullying;” in practice the prosecutors go after freelancers, and leave their own alone. Consider the list here, culled on March 1, 2024 from the DOJ website: Two convicted in multimillion dollar adult daycare fraud scheme, March 1, 2024; Grandparent Scammer Sentenced to Federal Prison, February 29, 2024; Fifth Defendant Sentenced for Laundering Proceeds of Scams Targeting Elderly U.S. Citizens, February 27, 2024; U.S. Attorney’s Office Hosts Fraud and Abuse Prevention Seminars for Seniors, – February 23, 2024; Two Indian Nationals Charged in Elder Fraud Gold Bar Courier Scam, February 23, 2024; Montgomery Man Sentenced to Prison and Ordered to Pay Nearly $370,000 for Schemes Targeting Elderly Victims, February 20, 2024; Man and woman charged in elder fraud conspiracy, February 20, 2024; Four Accused of Nationwide Financial Scam Targeting Elderly, February 15, 2024; Bristol Man Sentenced to Prison for Fraud and Tax Offenses, February 15, 2024… Not one entry concerns the abuse of the elderly by the courts or by state agencies. In fact, court-authorized guardianship is promoted by the USDOJ as a cure for abuse… Interestingly, the DOJ has included some information as to “what to do” if there are concerns about guardian abuse. The available resources do not include “what to do” if a party to the abuse is a judge… Further concerns which buttress a perception that the  government is now in the elder abuse business relate to a matter which is ongoing in Southern California and involves an older man named, for the purposes of this report, “Scott.” On the (mis)direction of a supervisor named Angela Kendrick who is  with the licensing agency which ostensibly oversees homes for the elderly and infirm, “Scott” in December signed a form LIC 605A, to give me access to his medical records. Scott is suffering from a treatable condition, hydrocephalus, most likely  the result of a fall, which will proceed to death if left untreated. Scott is not receiving treatment at the assisted living home, Leisure Gardens in Lancaster, California and the request for medical records was made in an effort to determine why not and to potentially advocate for him… When Leisure Gardens refused to honor his wishes, a complaint was filed with the licensing agency, Community  Care Licensing (CCL), which is a part of the California Department of Social Services. The complaint, which was filed in writing on 12/26/2023, was mysteriously removed from the system. A voice record of Scott stating he had not revoked his signing the form and stating he wished me to have his medical records in order to advocate for him was made on Feb. 5, 2024 and duly sent to Leisure Gardens. The caseworker at Leisure Gardens, Jessica Pelaya, has informed this reporter that the very same supervisor who provided the wrong form for “Scott” to sign, Angela Kendrick, has advised Pelaya to forward “any records” that I may provide demonstrating Scott’s wishes to Kendrick, who has declined phone calls from this reporter and who, according to Pelaya, does not respond to requests concerning how to respond to evidence of Scott’s wishes… The question is “Why?” Scott has negligible assets and no history of significant political activity. The answer may lie with Angela Kendrick, who has taken a particular interest in obstructing Scott’s survivability. If concerns that the government has taken a dedicated turn towards removing the vulnerable elderly from government rolls, such as we saw in the predictable slaughter of the elderly in nursing homes during the Covid crisis turn out to be true, then denying health care to a “Scott” would make some twisted sort of sense…. At this juncture, Kendrick is refusing to respond to emails or phone calls. Efforts to file an employee complaint about her actions as a CCL Supervisor have not at this juncture come to fruition. After concerns were lodged with the Sacramento office of CCL about the disappeared complaint of December 26, 2023, an agreement was reached to file a new complaint focusing on the fact that “Scott” is not receiving life-saving medical treatment and is being consigned to a slow, unpleasant and unnecessary death… To be continued….”Breaking News: MP Andrew Bridgen Summons Head of Met as a “Matter of Urgency” & has “New Disturbing & Damning News” – by Patricia Harrity –
https://expose-news.com/2024/03/06/breaking-news-mp-andrew-bridgen-summons-head-of-met-as-a-matter-of-urgency-has-new-disturbing-damning-news/ – “Andrew Bridgen has written to Sir Mark Rowley, Commissioner of the Metropolitan police asking for an urgent meeting with him and Metropolitan Police detectives to discuss serious issues that have come to light regarding the Covid 19 pandemic and vaccination programme. Andrew Bridgen informs Rowley that this is a matter of importance for the well being and safety of the British public and has added that “very disturbing new and damning news has recently come to light that will be revealed and discussed at the meeting…
Andrew Bridgen says that the COVID inquiry team had told him that if criminality is suspected then it is a matter for the police. As we know, and as Andrew Bridgen says “there is evidence of criminal activity at the highest levels of the UK Government, including British Prime Minister and his financial links to Moderna.” and this will be presented… There are “very serious criminal offences” wrote in the letter, these include:

  • Misconduct in public office.
  • Misfeasance in public office.
  • Manslaughter
  • Gross Negligent Manslaughter
  • Gross Corporate Manslaughter
  • Fraud
  • Murder
  • Grievous Bodily Harm.

As well as conspiracy to commit and aiding and abetting the aforementioned crimes… A room big enough to facilitate at least twenty people who will attend to give evidence from their field of expertise has also been requested… Those giving evidence include:

Jim Ferguson asks “Could a sitting Prime minister now come under criminal investigation for potential crimes committed in this and other related potential serious misconduct in public office.?”
