Last Updated on June 20, 2022 The Federal Reserve (FED) is rolling out plans to develop a “Digital Dollar”, according to FED President Jerome Powell. According to a report in Reuters , there had been speculation that such a thing would develop in response to the popularity in cryptocurrencies and the decreasing value of the US Dollar (USD). Critics of the Digital Dollar, or what is often referred to as a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) point to the idea that the FED will have the power to freeze accounts on an arbitrary basis.
Powell announced the venture on Friday, stressing that the project is aimed at maintaining the USD’s standing as a global reserve currency, meaning that it is one of the most widely used currencies in the world along with the Chinese Yuan, the Euro, and others. Russia and China have tried to displace the USD as the world’s primary currency.
Some economists speculate that a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin could eventually wind up being the world’s most prevalent reserve currency. Bitcoin has a capped supply at 21 million units, so it cannot be devalued through currency manipulation, such as printing. It is also completely decentralized. A digital dollar would be controlled by the FED, which is technically a private entity (a bank), but has proven to be a quasi-government agency, printing money and changing interest rates in response to various policies. Despite this, the FED is practically unaccountable to voters.
Concern that some people have about centralized finance is not unfounded. Large financial institutions have already singled out several dissident figures. Several right wing activists and politicians have even had accounts frozen and funds seized. Prominent examples involve former GOP Senate candidate Lauren Witzke having her Wells Fargo account shut down and political commentator Nick Fuentes having approximately […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
