News Date: May 23, 2024

The US House of Representatives passed the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act, which aims to ban the Federal Reserve from creating a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
The bill, passed with a vote of 216 to 192, saw support from 213 Republicans.
It prevents any pilot programs for a CBDC before they are proposed and restricts the Federal Reserve and the Department of Treasury from issuing a CBDC without Congressional approval.
Additionally, the bill ensures that the Fed cannot issue a retail digital currency that could be used for citizen surveillance.
Majority Whip Emmer emphasized that the bill is a response to the current administration's lack of clarity and guidance on digital assets, arguing that an improperly managed CBDC could significantly impact American lives.

Iraq focuses on BRICS

Iraqi MP Zeinab Al-Mousawi, a prominent member of the parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee, urged the government to make joining the BRICS group a top priority.
Mousawi stressed that this move would bring numerous economic benefits to Iraq, including expanded trade opportunities and enhanced economic independence.
Mousawi stated that BRICS members "are rich in oil, metals, rare minerals used in technological industries, and grains."
Iraq is blessed with abundant resources, including extensive oil reserves, fertile land for agriculture, natural gas, and minerals.
We want to be "Free of Washington's financial and trade restrictions," Mousawi summed it up to Amwaj Media.

US Sanctions Risking systemic collapse

Russia could ask for rubles or gold in exchange for energy. If that occurred Europe would have little choice. The real leverage in the Petrodollar system is on the 'petro' side.
It will be interesting to see how this develops. If energy payments begin moving outside of the SWIFT system, then the Petrodollar will be severely damaged.
Regardless, it's going to be disruptive and we're going to see additional problems. Very likely we will see further money printing and more stagflation.
The United States' attempts to simultaneously take on both Russia and China is a bad idea. We're forcing the two of them together while Europe is trying to play both sides. This situation will end with China and Russia gaining status.
Russian citizens have also been buying gold. This crisis will hurt their citizens, but this isn't Russia's first rodeo. The fact that Putin has done this either means he's lost his mind or he has a plan and found a window of opportunity.
We could see serious spillover effects on bonds and real yields.
The United States can't afford higher rates, and they can't remove Russia's oil without destroying their own markets.
We could see big changes should Russia use their gold as leverage. Possible scenarios that could occur should gold be revalued.

Gold & Silver Will Be Unstoppable

The escape from failing fiat will lead to rising nominal interest rates, with all the consequences which that entails. The inevitable outcome is a flight to commodities, including gold and silver, despite rising interest rates for fiat money.
The gold standard of the nineteenth century and is easily explained: within a confined money total such as that of monetary gold, an increase in the quantity of goods and services taking place can only be accommodated by a decline in the general level of prices. Put another way, the purchasing power of sound money, a money whose quantity is not inflated, always rises over time.

New Dollar Backed by Gold Coming This October 2020?

The rumor, and big fear, is that the IMF may opt to remove the US from the global SDR basket, effectively reducing the US's veto rights from the world stage. SDRs would then be a step closer to replacing the greenback as the world's reserve currency.
With the IMF attempting to pull off a fiscal reckoning minus the US dollar, President Trump may pull off a global reckoning of his own, by issuing US Treasury Notes backed by gold.
