Can Trump Stop the Establishment?

The World Just Got Smaller

You have no doubt heard all of the rhetoric behind Trump’s rise to power. And you’ve probably read countless streams of anti-Trump articles.

But today, whether you’re a Trump supporter or not, I urge you to take a step back and view things from a different perspective: The perspective of the Establishment.

You may call them the Global Elite, the Deep State, the Shadow Government, or the Illuminati.

You may even call them bankers, politicians, and Globalists.

What you call them is not important. What’s important is that we learn to see things from “their” perspective.

Their goal is to ensure control of the world through a single directive

In fact, most of the geopolitical antics you’ve witnessed have been engineered to elicit a specific psychological response in order to brainwash the masses into believing “they” are the saviours of the world.

Take 2008, for example. It was an event that was deliberately set to create an international financial crisis in order to make us believe that we need to be “saved.”

The bankers created a crisis and the world panicked. Then the bankers provided a solution and the world acted like nothing happened.

“They” create a problem (financial crisis) to elicit an emotional response (panic), and then provide a solution (debt).

Then everyone thanks “them” for saving the world.

Just ask the people at Time Inc.’s Money division:

Via Money’s “Who Really Dug Us Out of the Great Recession“:

“…If any entity deserves the biggest share of credit for avoiding another Great Depression, it’s the Fed. The Fed really turned to an extraordinary number of tools to keep money flowing in the economy, many of them made up on the fly.”

Did the Fed really save the world out of the kindness of the heart? Maybe. What we do know is that America, and more importantly Americans, now owe the Fed and the banks more money than ever.

If you think this is something new, think again.

We all know about the Great Depression, and some of you were around to experience it.

In school, we are taught that the Great Depression was created by the wild and irrational stock-market speculation that ultimately led to the Great Crash of October 1929. We are taught that greedy capitalists were to blame.

A closer look, however, reveals that the increase in money supply caused by the Fed was one of the primary drivers that fueled the stock market boom. The Fed created an unsustainable boom in the 1920s by lowering interest rates.

In fact, Murray Rothbard, a famous Austrian economist estimated that the money supply had increased by 61.8 percent between 1921 and 1929.

And based on his formula for true money supply, we’re way above 62% now over the last eight years.

In other words, it was the Fed’s direct monetary policy that led to such irrational exuberance in the stock market. This irrational exuberance (much like today’s stock market) gave way for the Fed to decrease the money supply, prolonging the Great Depression.

This, in turn, eventually gave way to the Banking Act of 1935, which converted the autonomous regional system of reserve-holding banks into a monolithic central bank with direct and deliberate control over the U.S. monetary system.

In other words, it led to the creation of the Fed: a single banking directive in the most wealthy and most powerful country in the world, the United States of America.

Today, the same events are occurring but this time on a global scale.

If you understand the mind of the Establishment, then you too can chart a proper course through the troubled waters we’re about to face this year.

Let’s start by going back to March of 2016 when I wrote an important Letter on “Why the People are Voting Donald Trump


Why the People are Voting Donald Trump

“For years, I have written about how big banks gained control of society via our financial markets and the manipulation that go on within.

I have been able to use that information and turn it into something positive by making investments based on the fundamentals of what I believe is really happening, as opposed to what the media tells us is happening.

But the majority of Americans haven’t been able to do the same.

The majority of Americans have been sitting on the sidelines, struggling to pay the bills while watching the following headlines splash across the news:

Corporate profits soar to new highs

Stock market soars to new highs

Number of millionaires in the US soar to new highs

The media hasn’t exaggerated those statements; those are all true.

The stock market is at an all-time high and corporations are raking in the profits. And there certainly are more millionaires in the U.S. than ever before.

But guess what? There are even more people without jobs and homes – much more.

Those without jobs and those barely making ends meet are watching the news and seeing how great things are supposed to be.

And they’ve had enough.

They’re tired of the lies the media has been spilling into the economy. They’re tired of the years of deceit.

That is why they are voting Trump.

Trump, despite some of his controversial views, represents anti-establishment.

We generally have this idea of Republicans being all for profit and capitalism that they forget the little guys. Billionaire Trump most certainly fits this character.

But people are starting to realize that Democrats are no better. In fact, since 2008, they have raised and spent more money than the Republicans by hundreds of millions.

If you take a look at the amount of money from funds, corporations, and celebrities that have gone to support Democratic campaigns, you would see that the numbers are quite high.

For example, billionaire George Soros – who is shrouded by evil conspiracies – has already given Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this election cycle more than $13 million.

In the last mid-term elections, Liberal hedge-fund billionaire Tom Steyer poured nearly $74 million to support the Democrats.

These are the same fund managers that are the target of anti-establishment voters. And as we all know, in the world of finance, no one pours that much money without expecting a return.”


Regardless of your political views, Democrats have been the primary source of big government and the ruling class. Many within the Democrat Party have reaped the financial rewards from those who depend upon, and profit from, government largesse.

It’s no surprise that over the last few decades, the democrats have always been able to raise more money than the GOP – spending much more than Republicans to win nominations.

Do you think it’s a coincidence that many supporters of the Clinton Foundation have significantly decreased or stopped donations to the Foundation immediately after Hillary Clinton lost the election?

Take Norway for example.

Via Hegnar (translated by Google):

“According to Finance newspaper laid the annual Norwegian contribution of NOK 40 million on average from 2007 to 2013. In 2014, the contribution more than tripled, to 129 million. And in 2015 they increased to 174 million.

… After a record contribution from Norway to the disputed Clinton Foundation before the election year, the contribution is now in free-fall. Financial newspaper can tell that next year’s contribution is down 83 per cent from the peak year of 2015.

…Norway has not entered into any new agreements with the Clinton Foundation, which means that cooperation is closing next year. Then the total Norwegian contribution to the disputed Clinton Foundation, according to Finance newspaper, have summed up to 643 million kroner.

Norway is thus the third largest contributor after Saudi Arabia and Australia, followed by a number of Arab Gulf states.”

It’s no surprise that the relationships between Saudi Arabia and many of the Arab oil states with the Clintons have been shrouded by much controversy over the past years.


I wrote about this many times before in my Letters, including, The Secret Deal Between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

And the media tells us Trump is colluding with Russia…


Why the People are Voting Trump Continued…

“Perhaps that’s why, despite less campaign spending, Trump is killing it.The Strongest Campaign in History

Trump has capitalized on the years of anger and disillusionment of the voters to propel one of the most powerful political campaigns we have ever seen.

According to mediaQuant, and via New York Times, Trump has managed to achieve close to $2 billion worth of media attention since he began his campaign. That’s about twice the all-in price of the most expensive presidential campaigns in history. It’s also more than twice the estimated $746 million that Hillary Clinton, the next best at earning media, took in.

In February alone (2016), Trump earned as much media as Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton combined.

You may be thinking, “That’s because he has so much money, and so many rich friends to pay for his campaign.”

Well, actually, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Take a look at the chart on the right. It represents the amount of bought and earned media by the candidates in the 2016 election.

Trump has not only spent significantly less on media than his adversaries, but he has also gained significantly more than any of them – by a wide margin.

…Trump’s momentum continues and anti-Trump Republicans are now preparing with all their might to stop his train.

But can they?

Every day, more Americans turn up to support Trump.

Americans are supporting Trump because he has been telling the truth when no one else will:

America’s economy is NOT what it appears to be.

Americans – the ones who are sitting at home watching the rich get richer while they get poorer – want the truth exposed. And they are voting for Trump because he is exposing the truth about the American economy.”


 

Here’s the truth: Closing the income gap was one of Obama’s biggest agendas for economic change.

During his first four years in office, little was done to bridge this gap. So in 2014, he promised “with or without Congress” to tackle economic inequality, in his annual State of the Union address.

Unfortunately, as data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently revealed, not only did income inequality not decline under his reign, it actually surged to multi-decade highs.

Via Bloomberg:

“Top wage earners last year made 5.05 times what their lowest-income counterparts took home, the widest gap in data going back to 1979, according to the Labor Department. What’s worse, it shows the most recent improvement — in 2014 — was just a blip, and the trend is again moving in the wrong direction seen over almost four decades.”

Unfortunately for Obama and his supporters, not only has one of his top economic priorities failed miserably, but last week’s disappointing US GDP growth data may have just labeled Obama as one of the worst Presidents in history for economic growth.

Over his two terms in office, Obama averaged an annual growth rate of less than 1.5% – the weakest of any expansion since 1949.

But the real dagger is that Obama has now become the only President since Hebert Hoover to not have one year of 3% GDP growth.

Sure, we can give Obama some slack since he did take office following one of the biggest financial crises in history.

But you would think that with a rip-roaring stock market and having added almost $8 trillion to the national debt – the most in history – the American economy should have done much better.

It’s ironic because Obama and his Democratic administration promised to take care of the little guys, the lower and middle class. Yet, Americans are now in more debt than ever (which the little guys will have to pay for), and the wage gap is bigger than ever.

So regardless of your political views, can you really say that things are better for the lower and middle class?

While Trump’s critics claim that he is dividing Americans, the truth is that his policies are actually about protecting them.

Trump has talked about the widening inequality gap that only benefits the wealthy class. And while his critics, the media, and democratic opposition will always turn the tables by addressing Trump’s wealth and his capitalistic views, the reality is that under the Obama administration, things have gotten much worse.

Now before you attack me as a Trump supporter, know that I am merely painting the facts. These are precisely the facts that Trump has exposed, and that the media has covered up.

The scary part is that Justin Trudeau shares many of Obama’s ideologies and policies. It’s no secret Trudeau looked up to Obama and that the two shared a bromance.

Trudeau is going to spend and put Canadians into massive debt, just as Obama has done. It remains to be seen if his massive spending spree will produce any real economic results.

If Canada doesn’t show any signs of strong economic growth over the next few years under Trudeau’s term, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit that a reality TV star and wealthy entrepreneur could become our next Prime Minister – just as Trump did in the U.S.

Kevin O’Leary, you may get what you’re asking for.


Continued from Why the People are Voting Trump…

“…But if Trump is indeed the anti-establishment leader he is making himself out to be, and continues to gain support, what then?

The Attack on the Establishment

For all we know, Trump, the master of the deal, may have already struck a deal with the bankers and politicians.

But as we know right now, Trump is anti-establishment and anti-globalization.

If Trump is elected under that presumption, we’re going to see the building blocks of the Establishment and globalization come under attack, and they won’t like it.

They will fight back, leading to major conflicts including riots, protests, and potentially even war and assassination attempts. 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.”

It would appear “they” are already fighting back. The media continues to attack Trump through protests and marches, many funded by left-wing lobbyists and the elite such as George Soros. Yes, this includes numerous members of the Women’s March.

It was recently revealed that Soros was connected to more than 50 of the groups that organized the nationwide “Women’s Marches” that saw millions of Americans take to the streets across the country.

It’s the same march where Madonna’s she said she has “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” adding to the subliminal messages of an assassination attempt on Trump.

In fact, we’re witnessing assassination comments all over social media from those who have influence over our youth and the uneducated. From Rappers such as Rick Ross who called for an assassination of Donald Trump last year, to major media outlets such as CNN who are subliminally planting the seed to incite others to join and take down Donald Trump.

With so many unstable individuals being fuelled by the media, Trump is in a very dangerous position.


“What I write may be difficult to grasp at first, but as time passes, the light will shine. Just keep in mind that throughout American history, whenever the Establishment has been challenged, it has always been followed by bear markets and economic contractions.”


And Trump is directly attacking the Establishment.

In his inauguration speech, he directly focused on bringing the power back to the people; directly attacking and calling out the Establishment:

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

… For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own

…And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.”

Backing his words with action, Trump has already signed a whole range of executive orders that challenges the very essence of the Establishment.

He’s already made an executive action to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership – a partnership often viewed as a globalist policy. He’s frozen the hiring of new Federal employees in attempts to control Big Government. He’s done a lot in just a week.

And according to the New York Times, Trump is about to attack the Establishment head-on:

“The Trump administration is preparing executive orders that would clear the way to drastically reduce the United States’ role in the United Nations and other international organizations, as well as begin a process to review and potentially abrogate certain forms of multilateral treaties.

The first of the two draft orders, titled “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations” and obtained by The New York Times, calls for terminating funding for any United Nations agency or other international body that meets any one of several criteria.

Those criteria include organizations that give full membership to the Palestinian Authority or Palestine Liberation Organization, or support programs that fund abortion or any activity that circumvents sanctions against Iran or North Korea.

…The draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that “is controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is blamed for the persecution of marginalized groups or any other systematic violation of human rights.

…The second executive order, “Moratorium on New Multilateral Treaties,” calls for a review of all current and pending treaties with more than one other nation. It asks for recommendations on which negotiations or treaties the United States should leave.

The order says this review applies only to multilateral treaties that are not “directly related to national security, extradition or international trade,” but it is unclear what falls outside these restrictions.

For example, the Paris climate agreement (Globalist policy) or other environmental treaties deal with trade issues but could potentially fall under this order.”

Trump is cleaning house and he has already purged the State Department. Many believe the CIA is next.

And it’s no secret that the CIA has attacked Trump leading up to his inauguration.

Just remember this: the last U.S. President to challenge the Establishment, the Shadow Government, and even the CIA, was the beloved John F. Kennedy.

President Kennedy did many of the things Trump is attempting to do today: Expose the shadow government, eliminate the CIA, ordered a complete withdrawal from Vietnam (Trump has boldly announced that he will bring back troops and not interfere with other nations’ internal affairs), and signed Executive Order 11110 – one that would return the responsibility of the money supply back over to the U.S and out of the Fed.

And we all know what happened to JFK following his actions.

Conclusion

With Trump in power, the short-term success of America will be apparent.

However, the success of his policies means a gradual rise in inflation, and thus, interest rates.

Like the events leading up to the Great Depression, we have been exposed to a prolonged all-time low level of interest rates. This has led to irrational exuberance in the stock market which could lead to a dramatic depression when the bubble pops.

We have been so accustomed to low-interest rates that when interest rates tighten, it could spell doom for many Americans who are already stifled with debt. It could also spell doom for many emerging markets whose debt is mainly comprised of dollar denominated assets.

And believe me, interest rates will rise in 2017.

Now that Trump is in power, he could become the fall guy for the Establishment’s policies.

In fact, half of America have already been setup to blame Trump for every negative event that will happen over the next four years.

They will blame Trump for a stock market crash (if one were to occur, which I believe it will), and not for the irrational exuberance brought on by low-interest rates and the loose monetary policies of the last decade – the same policies that led the U.S. to the Great Depression.

As Trump’s policies begin to see success, the Fed will likely raise rates and contract the money supply. They will need an excuse to do it, and what better excuse than a rise in inflation caused by Trump policies.

When this happens, another Great Depression could occur. Of course, following that, we’ll need to be “saved.”

And who better to “save” us than the Establishment.

Remember, the aftermath of the Great Depression was the creation of a monolithic central bank with complete control over the U.S. monetary system.

This time, it’s global. Can Trump stop it?
