Tucker Carlson has survived countless “cancelation” attempts from the Left.
They want him silenced because he and the guests he features on his Fox News show frequently expose establishment corruption.
And a former HUD official just warned Carlson’s viewers about the terrifying thing the elites are planning.
The pandemic was a major wake-up call for many people who didn’t believe that the government would exert overwhelming control over the public.
The next step in massive control is Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
Governments don’t like private cryptocurrencies because they allow people to transact with relative privacy, and they are not subject to central bank inflation, which devalues fiat currency.
So governments are coming up with digital currencies of their own, i.e. CBDCs.
CBDCs also allow for social credit systems, which have already been implemented in Communist China.
Former assistant HUD secretary warns Fox News host Tucker Carlson of the danger of CBDCs
He brought on Catherine Austin Fitts, Assistant HUD Secretary under George H.W. Bush, to explain the depths of the problem.
Fitts said, “One of the bedrocks of freedom is being able to do financial transactions privately…Unfortunately, as the financial system has become more and more digital, you see more and more invasive surveillance, more and more controls.”
Cash is slowly being phased out.
The number of ATMs has decreased, and during COVID, many stores simply did not have coins to make change.
Fitts continued, “It’s hard for people to imagine the risks here because we’re so used to living with financial transaction freedom, and we don’t understand that when this gate closes on us, we will be sitting in a system where the central banks believe our assets belong to them, and they can dictate where we can spend money and what we can spend money on.”
Canadians got a taste of that during the Freedom Convoy when protesters had their bank funds temporarily frozen by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Fitts added, “Central Bank Digital Currencies are not currencies. It’s a financial transaction control grid. It gives the ability to the central bankers to not only set the rules centrally, but enforce the rules centrally. If you don’t behave, you can have your money turned off.”
This is the goal.
The elites want to determine how and where people spend their money.
Corporations are being strong-armed with ESG (environmental, social, and governance) scores, and social credit systems will be used on populations.
New York State already launched a CBDC pilot program, so this concept is not far off into the future.
