“Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, is said to be preparing to bring the Keystone Pipeline bill to the floor of the senate this coming week. No doubt the offices and votes of numerous senators are now in play as the oil money pours in. Every senator wants their piece of the big oil pie. Meanwhile, the lobbyists for the cartels are swarming the District of Criminals like a hoard of voracious ants, consuming one senate vote after another.

By one count, more than half  of the world’s gold wound up in America after WWII.

Following Bretton Woods, the US dollar—immune to inflation and then referred to as “good as gold”—was printed and exported worldwide to be used to grab war-weary nations by the economic short hairs.  This, some have argued, was the beginning by the bankers to launch world monetary, resource, and economic consolidation.

A few decades later, the world’s vaults were bulging with dollars; the US having sent/spent more dollars abroad than at home.

Today, analysts pretty much agree that outside the US, of the savings, or reserves, of all other countries—in gold and all currencies—that a massive 66% of this total wealth is in US dollars. More
