A little bit of everything in this 30 min 18 sec vid. Nothing to see. Recommend listening in one window and playing around in bugland in another.

The Golden Rule is Coming Soon — John Rubino​

Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Netwo
Jan 17, 2023



- Iran and Russia are talking about issuing a gold backed stablecoin.
- Ghana has started paying gold for oil, the first consignment was $40 million.
- Massive shift towards nuclear power is coming.
- They're changing the way they calculate the CPI to make it much lower in the year ahead.
- Claus Schwab and George Soros just pulled out of the Davos WEF meeting. Are they just old and dying or is something else up?
- Meanwhile the WEF has declared 2023 the year of the "polycrisis". William Gibson came up with the concept. The jackpot, everything is coming up lemons. A bunch of crises are happening at once, is the WEF trying to stop it or cause it?
- Are the Dems trying for a two-fer, getting rid of Trump and Biden for the same crime with classified docs?

by John Konrad (gCaptain) Vladimir Putin’s attempts to destroy Ukraine have been met with powerful resistance, and his energy war against the West has been met with a determined response. His failures in both are centered on Putin underestimating the will of Ukrainians and the ability of the west to quickly reroute LNG tankers, deploy grain ships ton the Black Sea, and send US Merchant Marine ships filled with military supplies to the Baltic and Mediterranean. He underestimated a seafaring nation and shipping itself.

Seablindness: “the inability to connect with maritime issues either at an individual or political level”
The results of Putin’s endeavors have been far from satisfactory for the Kremlin, leaving Putin with few options and a weakened position while showing the world the importance of maritime transportation. But, will either Russia or the west learn the right lessons from this conflict or will we continue down the path of chaos, war, and apathy toward the power of maritime transportation to solve big problems?

Inside Kodiak’s crab standoff​

BY: NATHANIEL HERZ - JANUARY 27, 2023 4:00 AM


After the heat wave-induced collapse of the Bering Sea snow crab fishery, some fishermen were looking, with hope, at the upcoming tanner crab harvest out of Kodiak.

The nearly 6-million-pound quota was the highest in decades. And some people spent more than $100,000 to buy a permit to fish this year, said Kevin Abena, one of the leaders of the Kodiak Crab Alliance Cooperative.
