Col Macgregor does not have a YouTube channel. He has a Bitchute channel: The video clip is part of his post https://www.bitchute.com/video/EvyZDL8B9Bn8/
This is his Bitchute Channel
The Bitchute channel will give you access to all of his videos. But he also frequently writes (usually for the American Conservative) and participates in podcasts. For all of this in the one place, go to his website “Future Defense Visions”.
McGreggor, of course, is right that “Debts do matter”. He is talking about the “$32 trillion US government debt”. But the US (actually West’s) debt problem is much-much bigger than that.
– Total US debt is $91 trillion (as of 2022). $31t of that is the US gov, the rest is citizens, corporations, banksters.
– The reason why US could afford to run up such insane mountain of debt is because Greenspans / Bernankes / Powells of the world managed to supress the REAL interest rates to negative levels (e.g. 4% nominal rate with 10% actual – not the BS us gov inflation = REAL interest rate of -6%). Which is why they had to resort to printing money as the number of dummies who are willing to lend the West money at negative rates has dwindled to a handful of imbeciles or corrupt banksters.
So, what happens when the REAL interest rate goes back to the 700-year normal level (which is 4-5%)? Well, the nominal rate will have to be 10% or 20% (depending on whether the inflation is going to be 5% or 15%). NOW, do the math. $90 trillion in Debt multiplied by, say, 10% Nominal rate = $9 trillion in interest payments. Guess what the entire US GDP is? If you believe the BEA BS – it is $25 trillion (including 15-20% of “imputations” — which is basically BS these “economists” make up in their ivory towers). But let’s just go with their number. What do you think is going to happen to the US (and West’s) economies if $9 trillion out of $25 trillion GDP (or 40%) will have to be paid in interest?
The US and Western economies, running total debt levels of 300% to 1,000% of their GDPs are the end of the road. Will they implode in 2023 or in 2030 is anybody’s guess. But implode they WILL. Just a matter of when…
Financial Structure of the US Financial Hegemon.
Fact: it’s been decades since the US Financial System established a sophisticated matrix whereby, it will Never, Ever have to pay off its Debts: both in the US and throughout all of the World.
The economist Dr.Michael Hudson has, repeatedly, shown How that system was set up.
Check with him.
There is no such thing as “free lunch”. If anyone, US, Japan, or Europe, defaults on the debt, the currency of that country becomes worthless (which is another word for “hyperinflation”). And yes, I agree with you that the US (or Europe, or Japan — collectively “West”) will not be able to pay their debts. The default is simply a matter of WHEN, not IF. And hence the hyperinflationary collapse is a question of WHEN, not IF.
But here the US is sending and lending hundreds of billions to the Ukraine. The US is going to get that back, with interest, right? Even if the Ukraine no longer exists, the debt will follow ‘elensky even unto Panama. How does all this connect to Jeffrey Epstein?
No! But it appears Russia is going to get something back with interest and someone’s else are going to have to rebalance their checkbook.
As someone once pointed out….
If you owe the bank a million dollars, you have a problem.
If you owe the bank a trillion dollars, the BANK has a problem.
Default would most likely collapse those economies that depend on being paid interest from that debt.
The forecast says more debt: https://www.statista.com/statistics/216998/forecast-of-the-federal-debt-of-the-united-states/
Not sure what the source of the Statista’s data is, Tom, but the numbers seem lowballed to me. They show the US Gov debt annual growth rate of 3.8% only. On average the US debt has been growing at 7.4% compounded growth rate since 1970.
All sorts of biased parties make projections all the time and without any apologies change those projections 5 times a years. Wall Street analysts are well known crooks on this, as an example, making earnings projections at the beginning of year at X, and then by the end of the year they reduce those projections by 30-50% or more. And it happens year after year after year and some people still listen and even pay for those “projections”…
Upton Sinclair once said an absolutely brilliant thing, which is very relevant here:
“Never argue with a man [US Gov “economists”, Statista, Wall Street Analysts, etc.] whose job depends on not being convinced. It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”
Hi Rock Time. No, I see your point. I just found it in a quick search, without knowing much about the details. It was more to show a pattern. No responsible, debt reducing policies seem to be planned? My personal view is, that “The West” is controlled by the financial system and the controllers of it. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6483026/ , The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdEKbbhxiUE . I think, that the City of London: https://cynthiachung.substack.com/p/sugar-and-spice-and-everything-vice is still controlling everything. USA via Wall Street NYC, and “the rest of the West” via Washington D.C. USA.
I found this: https://archive.org/details/albert-pike-letter-to-mazzini a letter written by Free Mason Albert Pike in 1871 about 3 planned world wars. A little knowledge about ww1 and ww2 combined with a little critical thinking, can easily lead to the conclusion, that both world wars are planned by strong financial forces among the “West” elites, as I see it. These world wars established total control over Europe and Japan for USA. First half of Europe and later, after the USSR collapse, all of Europe, as we see today in the war/SMO agaisnt Russia in Ukraine. I personally do not think, that this is a fake letter.
I think, that what we see today is a preparation phase for the 3. world war. Not going into too much detail here, and that the “grand plan” by the “West Elites” is to sanction, regime change and warwage, the world, until every serious opponent is broken up, and that all their nuclear weapons are taken into posession of the USA, so that these weapons cannot fall into the hands of terrorists and “rogue forces”. https://covertactionmagazine.com/2023/01/02/u-s-spreads-misery-across-the-globe-by-imposing-sanctions-on-a-third-of-humanity/ . If “nuclear weapon monopoly” for USA and UK as well as possibly Israel is achieved, then the world can be held at gun point on a macroscopic scale, and all debt can just be cancelled. The world is financing it’s own enslavement for it’s own money. All this, at best, done by the National Endowment for Democracy: https://www.ned.org/ as well as CIA/ MI6 / Mossad covert programes, as the main actors at least.
The world seems to be acting against this, now, more serious than before, with SCO, BRICS, Chinas Belt and Road plan and so, eg: https://covertactionmagazine.com/2022/09/13/latin-americans-reject-resource-plundering-by-same-nato-countries-fueling-military-conflict-in-ukraine/, https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/598257-saudi-arabia-considers-accepting-yuan-instead-of-dollar-for-oil/, https://www.reuters.com/world/saudi-arabia-gathers-chinas-xi-with-arab-leaders-new-era-ties-2022-12-09/. Eg.
I believe, that this warplan mentioned by General Wesley Clark about USA taking out 7 countries in 5 years is still on, just prolonged to about 25 years, and the aim is to destabilize the entire Middle East even more, much more, than it is already, for even easier acces to and control of the energy ressources in the region by primarily the USA: https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-re-going-to-take-out-7-countries-in-5-years-Iraq-Syria-lebanon-Libya-somalia-Sudan-Iran/5166 , and that we will see an Iranwar soon, after Russia “is taken care of”, or so they think. (Also to take posession of the natural recources in Russia, and prevent China’s access to them). Not going into details, but I think, that serious plans are made to “topple Iran”, without too much military effort.
We shall see. It is of cause a little bit “conspiracy like”, but it is my personal idea about, what is going on at this moment in time. We shall see, soon enough.
The interesting thing will be, if “The West” can continue to keep its position as a “destabilizing and chaos creating” hedgemon long enough to achieve this goal, or if “The Rest” of the world will successfully break free in time and thus make “The West” fall into a debt abyss, that will make western countris unable to project power around the world, outside their own borders, for a very, very long time. It is for sure interesting times, that we are living in. Just some thoughts, as mentioned. Correct or not? :o)

I see all nations are stepping up to Z’s call for weapons to the Ukraine! The astute and sharp minded Biden has pledged to send 31 Abrams tanks to the Ukraine. Germany’s ever-wise Herr Olaf after having his arm twisted around his back and a gun put to his head pledged to send 14 leopard tanks. I hear the Brits are smartly taking advantage of the business opportunity by sending 14 of their Challanger tanks. Even the Russians are stepping up by pledging to send some 59 high precision armor piercing missiles over to the Ukraine. More likely the Russians will end up being cheap-skates, and just lob over some dumb bombs and mortors once the tanks get to the front. I do not know if I should get some more popcorn, or should I head for the hills and build a bunker?
It would be interesting to get hold of that Soros text that Macgregor is referring to.
Robert, the Soros’s document can be found here:
Thanks for the link, but huh;
I read the article, and then I went to the Soros’ full text* as found on his web site*. I don’t see how the article comes to the conclusions that it does from reading what Soros wrote. Looks to me somebody is twisting Soros’ words!
Details aside, Soros does have his own perspective on history, but as I understand it what he is talking about is a new world security arrangement in which the two world superpowers at the time (this was back in the 1990s where the political landscape was much different than that of today,) that is Russia and the U.S., would collaborate; that out of NATO would emerge a new organization he calls “Partnership for Peace” which would fill not only the security vaccum that was existing in eastern Europe at the time, but also develop economic partnerships across all nations including Russia, and the work for the transformation of Nations to what Soros calls “Open Societies.”
Again, details aside, but the “broad brush” picture that Soros describes in his paper seems to be not too far off from what Russia has been suggesting. Obvious to any astute political observer, it is the West that is rejecting the concept, not Russia. The West appears to be simply dead set on its tracks to “take out Russia.” To me, by Soros’ definition, it is the “West” that is the closed society, and much less so any nation in the “East”.
Looking at world events unfolding, the West is clearly demonstrating it has zero intention for Peace. They fan the flames of war and other discontents with piles of B.S. and misinformation. There are some serious evildoers out there.
Here is a new twist:
Russian Marker Combat Robot Prepared to Take Out Western Heavy Tanks
Russian Marker Combat Robot Prepared to Take Out Western Heavy Tanks
Released on Thursday, January 26, 2023
The shock version of the Marker robot will be able to automatically detect and hit Abrams and Leopard 2 tanks, which Western countries are going to supply to Ukraine, said Dmitry Rogozin, former general director of Roskosmos, head of the Tsarskie Wolves special squad of military advisers.
“The combat version of the Marker robot has an electronic catalog in the control system with images of targets both in the visible range and in the infrared. Accordingly, the robot can automatically determine the enemy’s equipment,” he explained to RIA Novosti .
Also, “Marker” will be able to automatically prioritize targets.
Earlier it was reported that at least three “Markers” should arrive in the zone of special military operation in Ukraine in February.
The supply of new weapons to Ukraine from Western countries was announced on January 25. Germany agreed to transfer 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Kiev , and US President Joe Biden announced that he would send 31 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine .
