BIG BROTHER (WORLD GOVERNMENT) intends to control the monetary and economic affairs of individuals and nations by means of "cashless societies". Now that people are used to electronic transactions the phasing out of hard currency will accelerate. The next step seems to be the villification and elimination of certain denominations. Next would be the adoption of "smart cards" and ultimately "smart people" - implanted with micro-chips for verification.
The following article* is an example of a STAGED EVENT in progress. Watch it play out over the next months or years. A problem has been created (counterfeit money) in the hopes of arousing a reaction (currency no longer trusted) to achieve a solution (dollar bills no longer accepted). ~ Jackie Jura
Excerpts from the article:
~ A rash of counterfeit money created on cheap computer equipment has several large Canadian businesses refusing to accept $100 bills and the problem could lead to a crisis of confidence in the nation's cash
~ ...numerous retailers and restaurants are no longer accepting them at all. Some are also not accepting the $50 denominations for fear the counterfeit problem is spreading.
~ "There's a danger here that this problem will unsettle more business owners and the public," said the manager of the RCMP's central bureau for counterfeits. "Our currency is built on trust, and if the public or businesses perceive there is a problem,that trust is broken."
~ Shoppers Drug Mart Inc issued a memo to all of its 820 Canadian franchise stores...to stop accepting $100 bills until the problem is solved..."The problem is very serious" said Shoppers' Vice-President...
~ Fast food restaurants such as McDonald's, Tim Hortons and Wendy's all have franchises across Canada that are not accepting $100 bills, and often $50 bills as well...
~ ...the owner of Pet Valu stores in Toronto, said his bank told him to stop taking $100 bills after he received two fakes. "The second one came from a little old lady..."
~ ...the RCMP expect the fake cash will spread outside of Ontario and the counterfeit problem could last several months
