  1. BREAKING NEWS: USD Currency Collapse

    China Causes The USD To Fall?

    USD Dollar Drops 50% In Value Overnight?

    Hey there

    I don’t know you have heard this yet…

    But the USD Dollar is on the verge of collapse.

    In fact since 1973 it’s been on a downward trend…


    USD national debt is at an all time high and now financial experts are saying that China is starting to sell their debt holdings to the secondary market.

    This means it won’t be too long until the USD crumbles in value!

    I don’t want to be the bringer of bad news, but this is seriously not good for the US since we already have domestic problems of our own, such as immigration and unemployment.

    Our economy can not withstand another hit.

    This time the USD might actually collapse.

    Make sure you watch it before it’s taken offline.

    Speak soon.
