Our FEATURE today focuses on the recently published book by James Rickards entitled, "THE ROAD TO RUIN": The Global Elites Secret Plan For The Next Financial Crisis. We treat this book as the foundation for Rickard's recent claim that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will issue a notice that its' Special Drawing Rights (SDR) will become the world's reserve currency on January 1 replacing the US dollar. Rickards says that the IMF term for the new currency will be via Distributed Ledger Technology. This could be similar to the blockchain technology first developed and utilized by Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The impact on the value of the US dollar could be disruptive and damaging to US citizens. Rickards also puts a face on the elitists of the New World Order who are "changing the rules of the game". Other topics include: "Strong Corp Earnings Boost Stocks", US dollar rallies, Bitcoin reaches almost $6,000/unit, The cheese has moved for cable TV, the elites at the USPTO & the PTAB have received a warning from VPLM ex CEO, "The Coming Russia Bombshells", Uranium One becomes TOXIC, JFK resurfaces and the Americans With No Abilities Act.
