    Thank God Trump is the president of the USA,he is the only one standing between the people and the Gloablists headed by the Rothchilds

    1. Rusty says:

      What a shame that Trump doesn’t have support from his own party in congress. He would be unstoppable if he did.

      1. Chet Travirca says:

        The man is a monster. What do you see in him that so many others do not?
        More importantly, what dilution in your mind keeps you from NOT SEEING what most insightful people find blindingly obvious?
        Seriously…name ONE THING he has done for you and please back up your claim with at least ONE documentable FACT?

  2. Timothy R Cate says:

    Your statement “Remember, the aftermath of the Great Depression was the creation of a monolithic central bank with complete control over the U.S. monetary system.” is inaccurate. The FED was created December 23, 1913. The Great Depression is generally recorded as having begun in 1929 and ended in 1941. While the FED may have been greatly expanded after the Great Depression it actually created before, not afterwards. The effect of that system has of course been devastating over time regardless of the date of its creation, however I think your case is stronger if historically correct. Just my opinion and please correct me if I’m wrong.

    1. Ivan Lo says:

      Hey Timothy, great question. While the Fed was created before, their true power didn’t come until 1933 when the banking act came in.

      “The Act placed open market operations under the Fed and required bank holding companies to be examined by the Fed. Furthermore, Roosevelt recalled all gold and silver certificates, thus effectively ending the gold and any other metallic standard. Without these certificates, more reliance was plants on Fed dollars to replace the certificates.”

      Hope this helps.

    Excellent article. May God continue to bless and protect President Trump so that he may finish the work President Kennedy began.

    1. Chet Travirca says:

      Using Kennedy’s name in the same sentence with Trump’s is an abomination worthy of having one’s tongue cut out.
      Kennedy was everything Trump will never be.
      Kennedy ran headlong in war and the jaws of death…
      Trump hid behind his bone spurs and spent his ‘war years’ snorting coke in his penthouse while his high paid hooker’s pissed on him.
      The only thing I hope they will ever share…assassination.
      Think of all the lives that would have been saved had guys like Andrew Jackson or Adolf Hitler had been taken out early in their political careers?
      Many of you deserve a Trump but most of us…do not.

  4. Keith says:

    Hi Mr Lo. A couple of months ago you profiled Westleaf, since then it is down considerable, can you comment on this. Thanks Keith

  5. Padmasen Kanani says:

    I agree 100%.

  6. Valuebuyguy says:

    Very well written article. I’m out of the stock market now, don’t trust it one bit. Keep up the good work and keep me informed, thank you

  7. Zoli says:

    Read Tony Burman in the Weekend Toronto Star. He’s expecting Trump to pull a Nixon and resign before the election in exchange for a pardon. If he loses the election, he’s going to jail, which is the favored scenario.

  8. Bill C. says:

    After reading your post, I could not help but smile at the irony that central bank policies (mainly the FED) have caused the series of bubbles we have seen post Volcker, and at the end of this, central banks (The FED) will cause the crash leading to War.

    No one is the wiser. History repeats. Those in power are too short sighted or don’t care to ever learn that this time is NOT different.

    Look forward to your missive nest month, Ivan.

  9. Bring back America says:

    Anyone who believes that Trump will win the popular vote and the electoral college in 2020 is in my opinion living in la la land.
    He is destroying the Republican Party and totally embarrassing USA to the rest of the Western World.
    And if not voted out in 2020 will bring down our economy with a crash far worse than 2008.
    That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

    1. Bobert says:

      This might actually be lala land. As horrible as most of the Democrats positions (green new deal, reparations, higher fed income tax,etc ) As depicable as many believe him to be Trump just might win again.

  10. Kevin says:

    Nobody can and will beat the Establishment. Far too cunning.

  11. HI I’m Muhammad zeeshan from in Pakistan and live in village loshar khala and my email address is and my home address is village loshar khala post dhoda shrif district gujrat and my call and whataap contact is 03049795067and i want in work i so need a job

    1. Chet Travirca says:

      The most profitable job you can find is one you have made for yourself….
      Find a shortage and supply it.
      Find a need and fill it
      As long as you depend on others for your income you will always be your slave.

  12. barry says:

    Go Trump; let the man do his job. He was put in office by GOD.

  13. Chet Travirca says:

    Every night the last prayer of the day is that a wise and benevolent God stops the evil black heart that beats inside Trumps chest only to awake in the morning to find that God is…neither.
    The Republican party has, under Trump, has become a terrorist organisation and anyone that supports him or his party is the very definition of evil. Unless they are stopped they will be the death of us all.
    Trump is that Anti-Christ… embarrassing him is to climb into Satan’s bed.
    Buy ammo and stockpile food or die with the rest of the fools who don’t realize who Trump really is.

  14. Jason says:

    Thank you Ivan. Slowly but surly I see folks listening and pulling at threads of truth. Glad your providing some much needed light to flush out the dark.

  15. bruce swartz says:

    Trump won , much rather had him in office then the other we were voting for or against. Much better the Obama who did nothing but drag the USA down for 8 years. Chet seems to dislike the president , I disliked Obama and Hillary, didn’t vote for either of them. I want him to clean up the swamps in Washington D C , would like to see 8 year max terms, not life terms , when we elect people to office. Crime is too high, people kill for no reason, or poor reasons. Maybe it is time to start killing the killers, why lock them up for life, let’s just end it like they did to somebody else. Build the wall, should slow down drugs, and 35,000 people coming over from the south. The Equedia investment Research letter is very informing

  16. sp says:

    There has been a funny scenario in politics…….. we voted for change. We elected Trump with narrow wins. Then we regreted he was elected. We use issues to make him stumples and create things that make America looks like a fool…………(for example the latest suggestion to allow human bodies to be made compost; having foreign companies monopolize the supply chains within the country and in a stand still with every big power house in the world ………..) Let’s put it this way……… what would we do differently if we are the elected ones to make America great again?? If we can tell……… they can help us to do it or no?? Money game could be a fairly simple game of overall control if one desires or a complicated handling with mass involvement……….. If I’m the president aid………….. I would suggest…………………… (complete the sentence in 300 words)……………. lol

  17. Jon says:

    What does Equedia and anyone else think about Chicago? I’ve heard from some wealthy educated people that Chicago is set to go bankrupt in the next 4 years and the GDP of Chicago is enough to wipe out the growth of the entire US economy for 1 year and cause a mild recession since fed stimulus could take at least 12 months to have an effect on the market.

    1. sp says:

      The first imppression on Chicago was Chicago Bull – (wikipedia) They are known for having one of the NBA’s greatest dynasties, winning six NBA championships between 1991 and 1998 with two three-peats. All six championship teams were led by Hall of Famers Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and coach Phil Jackson. The Bulls are the only NBA franchise to win multiple championships and never lose an NBA Finals series in their history.

      Besides that……… Chicago is housing headquarters of many big companies (wikipedia) e.g. Boeing; McDonald’s; Kraft Heinz; Abbot etc……. “For the fiscal year that begins on Jan. 1 2019, the analysis pegged operating fund revenue at $3.74 billion, with expenses estimated at $3.84 billion. Chicago’s budget gap is projected to grow to nearly $252 million in fiscal 2020 and $362 million in fiscal 2021, according to the analysis”.…chicago-budget/chicago-eyes-shrinking-budget-gap-for-fis…… Unless the stock markets and trade centers in Chicaga are going to perform some circus tricks for entertainment….. Chicago will likely be going to grace the wind for change especially for climate change and flood and all………… to avoid flooding and fire out breaks from affecting those big headquaters…….. *wink*

  18. Aaron says:

    I’ve been thinking along these lines for a while, except I think the NEXT election will be the excuse for the market crash. I don’t think a recession will hold out for another election cycle. The 2-10 year curve has already inverted which means that we have 12-18 months before the recession starts (based on history only).

    The FED and other reserve banks seem to have been doing a great job at keeping the world economy growing and stable, with record growth stretches in the stock and other markets. This, of course, means that bubbles have had the longest time to inflate and markets to get overvalued. We now have a very high cliff to fall from,

    I think the next election will be the trigger for the recession, either before or after. The next elections is ~18months away. Trump is seen both hero and villain depending on who you talk to. I think the narrative could be:
    * During the lead up to the election, the pin is pulled and the global economy starts to take a tumble. Trump is painted as the villain for letting the economy tumble so badly and the establishment takes over to fix things
    * The pin is pulled after the election where Trump loses and the incumbent is made to look like the villain and trump the hero. Increasing pressure to bring back Trump style control to fix things.

    I don’t believe Trump will win the next election because he will not want to preside over an economy in recession. With the size of govt debt and the FED there will not be many leavers left to pull to fix things.

    Looks like Joe Rogan reads the Equedia Letter!

  20. Suzanne Favalora says:

    America needs to turn back to God. Without God, all is useless and vain. America has left the foundation of faith in God which is evidenced in our laws, behaviors and overall condition of our country.
    America needs revival, we need to pray for our leaders, asking God give them wisdom and insight to what we are facing as a nation, as a people.
    If we don’t turn, turn back to our awesome God, we will fail, and I hate to think of what that failure would entail!

  21. Jimmy Sells says:

    Sounds to me like you Trump haters may be the riff-raff crowd that never had a job, didn’t want a job, and never will work until government programs (which is your income) are stopped or cut drastically. It will be a sight to see and shoot-at when the drastic cut of your support happens. Because you will parade, join the mob, break the laws, steal, damage and destruct anything others have, to prove your point that things are bad. But just remember . . . . . unless you stay low you are apt to be the receiver of bad news, instantly.

  22. Stanley L Hoffman says:

    I enjoy your letters as you usually have some interesting points to make. However, you have shown that you don’t know who is actually running the show. God is in charge, not the establishment. The reason the establishment because so powerful is because people have fallen so far from God that judgment is upon us. It is God who raises up the Kings, and God who brings them down. It is God who brings prosperity, and we bring judgment upon ourselves when we reject God. Obama was further judgment upon the US because the people didn’t wake up when 9/11 occurred. If My(God) people would humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways, seek my face through fasting and prayer, I shall heal their land. That is a promise God gave us. I and others kept preaching that and finally during the latter term of Obama the sleeping Christians began to wake up and repent, turning back to God. Thus He raised up Trump and because of Trumps move to declare Jerusalem to once again be the capital of Israel, God has blessed the US. What you do to Israel shall be done unto you. God promised His believers, I shall curse those who curse thee, I shall bless those who bless thee. God always balances the books in His time. We believers are pressing in with fasting and prayer, and if Jesus doesn’t come back soon, we shall see a major victory through God. Each President who did something good for Israel had a good event follow, like the economy and stock market go up. Each President that has made decisions against Israel had a bad event follow like war, economic downturn, or market crash. Now you know a little more about who controls the Kings and the money. Your welcome and may God bless you.

  23. HW says:

    “It is quite possible that the Establishment might even be allowing Trump to succeed in order to cause chaos to show the people that the Establishment is a necessity once all hell breaks loose.” So, whatever scenario you look at, the ‘Establishment’ is still required to correct things? What I struggle to figure out is who, or what, Trump really cares about. If his historical track record is anything to go by, it’s not authority, nor the common people. It has been his family name, and his business interests. That would lead me to believe that anything he does is to benefit those areas. America is suffering with some very deep-set problems, and one of the biggest ones is that the people have been pit against each other. I see the only way to help solve this is to elect someone fair, equitable and independent from conflicts of interest. Someone intelligent and trustworthy who will not be ‘bought out’. That’s a pretty steep hill to climb in the current climate. It is my hope that people will soon become over saturated with political agendas- ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ and won’t be led so easily by sides. Trump has always had this weird effect on people, like a hypnotic charmer, and that can’t last forever. Regardless of what happens at this election, by the following one he will be gone and everyone can come back to their senses. But wait- this is America we are talking about! *shrug*

  24. Jim says:

    Jason, what makes you think that God cares who is President of our country? I suppose you think there is a tooth fairy that cares about your old teeth and Santa Claus cares whether you have been naughty or nice. God created humans to watch and see what we do with the gift of life. That is all that God cares about and not politics. Grow up Jason. Join the mature people of this country and realize God only cares about how you live the life he gave you.

  25. I hope you like the taste of newsprint, because nothing you claim will happen is going to happen and you will eat every page of your nonsense. Trump has zero understanding of trade. The US needs to fight the Chinese about stealing our technology, not by setting up our farmers and manufacturers to be screwed by Chinese tariffs. Soybean and pork producers are going broke every day, and related jobs are disappearing all through the agricultural states. Then he takes our money and uses it to pay off the farmers because his “policy” failed (within weeks)–and this is praiseworthy for you? This is effective public policy for you? This is what his agricultural base needs?. Most of US steel comes from Canada, not from China –I thought you knew that, because everyone else does. Trump’s steel tariffs are killing the automobile business, and that information is available to all. His rejection of the Iranian Agreement (which was working) and his toadying up to an international murderer in Korea has only increased the nuclear threat to the world. Trump is demanding deep interest rate cuts, when it is obvious that they will only make the eventual crash much worse–and you are worried that he might be blamed for that? I certainly hope so. Trump is kissing Putin’s butt, when Russia’s economy is decades behind the West and will never catch up. What is his fascination with tyrannical cowardly killers? Why is that a good thing? If you have such deep long-term insight, at least answer that. Multiple psychiatrists have repeatedly stated that Trump is a “malignant narcissicist, with psychotic and sociopathic tendencies”–hail your leader!
