Nuclear Debt Theft, Nuclear Monetary Supply, and Nicki Minaj, Part 1
The Monetary Wars Part VIII
"When I win and when I lose, I take ownership of it, because I really am in charge of what I do." -Nicki Minaj
This article is not going to be what you think it's going to be. If you're not sitting down, take a seat. Buckle up, take a deep breath, and hold on to something.
This is not another alarmist story about the U.S. national debt. It's far more accurate than that. And it gets weird. After that, it gets weirder. Then it gets, "Serial tech-geek entrepreneur Steve Kirsch just wrote an extremely well-sourced 29-page defense of rap-mogul Nicki Minaj's White House-concerning worries about COVID-19 vaccine safety expressed in tweets about vaccine-induced swollen testicles" weird.
Don't say you weren't warned.
Good. Sitting down is good. Let's get started...
Act I: From Debt Alarmism to Weird
The U.S. national debt stands at around $29 trillion dollars today.
"HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!"
Be calm. We're just getting started.
Such a sum of money seems truly mind-boggling in a world in which the entire global currency supply stands at around perhaps $90 trillion, or perhaps a little over twice that amount if we include all the equity in the stock markets. Even worse is that when we add under-funded and unfunded liabilities to the mix, the U.S. debt total exceeds $123 trillion---a full two-thirds of the world's entire supply of money and corporate equity.
"I could actually afford a house with that kind of money."
Hang on to that thought...
If the swollen U.S. balls of debt story (see what I did there?) seems concerning, the story quickly gets weirder. You see, the federal government owns more than 27% of all U.S. land, including nearly half of all the land in the Western states. A 2013 study by the Institute for Energy Research suggests that U.S. federal property is worth a whopping $200 trillion dollars, including $128 trillion in [currently] recoverable oil and gas resources. Such a sum may not even include the swiftly inflating value of land today, and the improved production abilities brought by new technologies. These assets might total between 20% and 25% of all the world's wealth.
So, is our government broke, flush with cash, or something else?
Understanding the [monetary] state we are in is far more complicated than decoding the sexual references in a Nicki Minaj hit, and it gets increasingly more complex when we throw the Federal Reserve and military-intelligence complex into the mix. If you thought we were on a roller-coaster ride already, you ain't seen nothing, yet. We haven't even gotten to the part where the Department of Defense managed to spend $20 trillion off the books in the span of only 17 years.
"The hell you say?"
Precisely. Go ahead and pour a glass of scotch. The good bottle. I'll be here.
"What could all that money do?"
It would have been enough to give every graduating high school student during that span around $300,000. There would be essentially no student loan debt, and millions of businesses built by a wide variety of young entrepreneurs leading what would likely be a dramatically more dynamic economy. Young people could buy homes and raise families. Sugar Baby University wouldn't exist. The Malthusian mind virus could be entirely defeated already.
"Sugar Baby what? Does all this mean it's not the [Other] Party's fault? It's still the [Other] Party's fault, right?"
Well, somebody's been having a party. But if you've started to get the feeling that the narrative is all wrong, and that almost nobody knows who the real problem is, you're making progress. If the first dose made you woosy, that just means it's working.
