Can The IRS Seize Your Bitcoin?

This video discusses whether the IRS can seize your Bitcoin, and other issues surrounding U.S. cryptocurrency tax policy. Bitcoin is currently taxable as property in the US. If you leave your Bitcoin on an exchange or store your Bitcoin private keys in the cloud, the IRS can certainly seize your Bitcoin. Otherwise, they are powerless to seize your Bitcoin, unless you hand over your private keys to them. If you out-hold the IRS and US government, you may not owe taxes.

The End of The Petrodollar and World War 3

This video discusses the giant cracks forming in the petrodollar system. As the US continues to display its military incompetence, the backing of the US dollar by commodity trade and “proof of war” is increasingly being called into question. China and Russia are both looking to move away from the US dollar when buying or selling crude oil. Saudi Arabia's new military alliance with Russia sets the stage for it being able to move away from selling crude oil strictly for US dollars. As we enter the 4th turning, we can see a new alignment of power taking place, setting the stage for hostilities between the US and a Russia/China/Saudi alliance.

Inflation Housing Prices & Government Lies

This video discusses one way in which the US government understates the true rate of inflation, using the owner's equivalent rent (OER). Rather than using actual housing prices in their calculation of the CPI, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics uses a survey, asking homeowners how much rent they could collect if they rented out their house unfurnished and with utilities not included. If we use actual rent and housing price increases instead of OER, we find that CPI inflation is closer to 8.92%, rather than the reported 5.28%. All changes to the CPI index have contributed to it understating the real rate of inflation. In this environment, you need to be growing your net worth by at least 8.92% every year just to break even.
