Matt Bracken tells Mike Adams: Financial crisis and kinetic war at a boiling point, triggering collapse of the U.S. empire
By Belle Carter // Feb 04, 2024

Though it would be hard to determine which of the frictions caused the most force to trigger it, the United States is quickly collapsing. This was according to Matt Bracken, an American writer and novelist, and former Navy SEAL associated with the Patriot movement. He appeared in the recent episode of Mike Adams' "Health Ranger Report" (HRR) on Upon the Natural News founder's inquiry on the trigger point of the fall of the nation: "Is it financial? Kinetic or cyber war?"

"All of these frictions are coming to a boiling point. So, this pot on the stove boils over and throws the lid and goes all over the place, it will be hard to say which burner under that pot was the hottest element that actually caused the lid to fly off," Bracken explained. The author went on to explain that be it a missile attack between Iran and the United States or banking collapse, traditionally and historically, when the debt cycle is played out completely in fractional banking, it always implodes, he said, pointing out that this may be a reason for bankers to start a huge war.

"So, they can blame the downfall of the financial system on the war that there won't be Senate hearings about 'why did all of the banks fail,' or 'why did we have hyperinflation in America' – if we had either hyperinflation or deflationary depression – because they're the two coin sides of the same coin," he further speculated.

For the HRR guest, the United States has got a rotten economy and it can either deflate 1930s-style America, or hyperinflate 1930s or 1920s German wine bar style, but they can't just keep printing money. "It doesn't work. The bankers would not want to be in front of a Senate hearing, where you have conservative Republican types like Rand Paul, who are saying 'You're going to go to prison for the rest of your lives.' Because when we unravel all of this, it was complete corruption and fraud and self-dealing," he added.

Adams also tackled the continued violence around the world that was provoked by the U.S. Empire. "We are well aware that the U.S. provoked Russia into the attack on Ukraine as a matter of self-defense of Russia," the free-speech platform founder noted. This is also because of the people in President Joe Biden's regime. For example, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland and foreign policy commentator, and her husband, Robert Kagan, who according to Bracken, are essentially running the nation's foreign policy. Another one who has a say as to who the United States could go to war with is Secretary of State Antony Blinken. "It's Victoria Nuland giving orders to Tony Blinken, not the other way around. She has a visceral hatred of Russia," he said. Adams agreed, saying Nuland is steeped in ethnic hatred of the Russian people and an extremely dangerous person because she's going to try to get NATO to attack Russia.

Civilians in Germany are asked to create their own bomb bunkers

Elsewhere in the show, Adams touched on a recent development in Germany, where civilians are asked to convert their houses, garages or basements into bomb shelters. According to Germany's Defense Ministry, Germans are expected to build their own bunkers as the country's national draft emergency defense plan has already assigned the construction roles to civilians in case a major war with Russia breaks out.

Local tabloid Bild reported that only 579 functional bomb shelters are available in the nation and the head of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance Ralph Tiesler said that building new shelters by the government is "no longer feasible" due to time constraints. The ministry is set to complete work on the classified "Operational Plan" (OPLAN) by April, where Germany is seen as a "transit country" that plays a crucial role in the delivery of weapons and equipment, rather than just a state with an active frontline. Their soldiers' role would be securing key highways, railway stations and ports. Civilians are also expected to cover some duties typically assigned to the military and police, including the protection of power plants.

Bracken warned that their government would not be able to protect its citizens in this scenario. "If you are in a kinetic war with Russia, there will be no Port of Antwerp," he said, referring to the distribution hub for the European hinterlands. Shippers can get E.U. customs clearance at the said port. "Remember, the submarines won't get across the Atlantic. So, if you have internal lines of communication, for instance, Russia is attached to China, you have big advantages in a modern kinetic war over somebody that has to do a sea lift. It's not 1940 anymore."

Also, being a friend of the United States is fatal to any nation, Bracken said and cited the incident where America blew up the Nord Stream pipeline and promised Germany that "We're gonna send in liquefied natural gas (LNG) on tankers, but it's going to cost about 10 times more than that pipeline gas."

"That's if the economy is working and everything, nobody's hassling anybody, but the pipeline going from the Russian Baltic into Siberia is a very hard and resilient target. It's an anti-fragile target. If you hit a pipeline with a missile and you blow up 500 feet of pipeline, they can fix it next week. If you blow up an LNG conversion plant or a regasification plant or ship in the middle of the ocean, the LNG across the ocean energy plan only works in a world of peace, with everybody playing nice together," he explained.
