Can Trump Stop the Establishment?18 min read

  1. With Trump defending international bodies, it signals a decreasing American influence on Global Affairs. China has said it will be more than willing to fill the shoes of America Internationally, is that really preferable?

    Russia, and China have both become tighter economically over the last 1-2 years, so American decline on the Global stage works out to a strategic advantage for them.

    There is no “they”, there is merely interest groups, focus groups, which overlap like venn diagrams. Social circles, if you will, who causally have relations with the political, social, technological, scientific etc. Happenings of our country.

    To the extent that certain interest groups attempt to subvert the rest, yes that happens, but I think it’s dangerous and unhelpful to describe them as shadow government all powerful establishment folks. Unless you’re saying that the Democrats specifically are this shadow government. I would disagree, and say that the shadow government you see is just the product of multiple overlapping professional interest circles, pursuing what they see as the best interest. There’s also likely a lot of happenstance involved.

    I liked the article, but I’ve shed a lot of my conspiracy cocoon long ago. Nevertheless, good insights here.

  2. Defunding ** not defending

    A lot of good points as usual. I think inflation, rising interest rates, rising $, a crash or correction in the stock market are inevitable given how complete stock market cycles work but perhaps will occur much sooner under ‘the Donalds’ command due to his ambitious and or outrageous policies. I suspect ‘the Donald’ is not as dumb as he looks and knows that the stock market has been rising since 2008 and due to correct as pressure mounts on his watch to continue adding fuel to the fire or spending his way out by adding more debt and asking higher inflation and interest rates to pay for it. As far as Mr. Wonderful (O’Leary) goes, even though he is an ignoramus, selfish and greedy bigot, he would be Canada’s version of ‘the Donald’ but would make a great Prime Minister also because of all the reasons mentioned about ‘the Donald’ going against the Establishment and by the way is a very astute businessman. As world populations have doubled since the Great Depression it becomes much harder for economies of scale to undergo harder landing and subsequently depressions due to there shear sizes and controls policymakers have with monetary policies. Governments have created an umbrella of policies to prevent another Great Depression, stock exchanges have revamped circuit breaker and risk firewall rules, banks are continually asked to undergo stress tests, so I am not expecting a GD any time soon, a 30-40% correction perhaps.

    thank you for an interesting if nt breathtaking tour of the machinations at play and potential future unfolding(s). One minor point, which I have been called out on myself, is the JFK “igned 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.
    Please verify for yourself as this has achieved urban legend status amongst monetary reformers and others. What did in fact transpire was 1)Yes JFK did sign etc. BUT2)it really was to release real silver backing and essentially to have them henceforth “backed” like other American currency e.g FED reserve. There was an acute demand for silver for industrial use and this was a tactic to lower the demand (price) only—-remember Nixon had not taken USA off Bretton-Woods gold backed dollar officially. Please do verify for yourself, but these are the loose ends that get tugged to completely unravel the fabric of your otherwise mostly excellent summary..

      Brian, thank you for your comment and as always, for reading the Equedia Letter.

      To comment: BUT2)it really was to release real silver backing and essentially to have them henceforth “backed” like other American currency e.g FED reserve.

      This one has always been a topic of much debate and confusion.

      In 1961, it was JFK’s plan to remove silver-backed currency (conspiracy theorists might tell you he was forced by the Fed and bankers to do so). Then in 1963, he issued Executive Order 11110.

      This is where people get confused.

      So let me try and clarify.

      Here is executive order 11110:

      SECTION 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 19, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended —

      (a) By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j):

      “(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821 (b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption,” and

      (b) By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.

      SEC. 2. The amendment made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.

      What were paragraphs (b) and (c)?

      If you go to: https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/codification/executive-order/10289.html you only see the words (Revoked)

      But you can find them here: http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=59339:

      (b) The authority vested in the Secretary of the Treasury by section 9 of the act of June 19, 1934, c. 674, 48 Stat. 1181 (31 U.S.C. 448a), to issue rules and regulations necessary or proper to carry out the purposes of the said act or of any order issued thereunder.

      (c) The authority vested in the Secretary of the Treasury by section 1805 of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.D. 1805) to issue rules and regulations (with respect to silver bullion) necessary or proper to carry out the purposes of the said section.

      Both clauses (B and C) were revoked in Executive Order 11110.

      That means he revoked the authority of the US Secretary of the Treasury for issues relating to silver and silver-backed currency, and gave it back to himself.

      This is evidenced through Executive Order 11110 which included this:

      (j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821 (b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption,” and…

      My interpretation is that JFK transferred the ability of issuing silver-backed currency back to the President, and away from the Secretary of the Treasury.

      The conspiracy here rises when JFK attempted to expose the shadow government.

      Perhaps there were those in his government (the Treasury) that was part of that “shadow” government he spoke of.

      Clarence Douglas Dillon was the Secretary of the Treasury during this time and also a very close of friend of the Rockefeller family. He was later Chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation. Best not to go into the conspiracies surrounding this topic…

      Hope this helps. I will address readers with this comment also since it seems to be a popular topic.

      Thanks.

  5. Presidents Trumps biggest problem coming up is the Federal reserve, of the national debt 4-5 trillion are mortgages, so to slow down the GOP and harsh President Trump they will raise rates to cause a depression. Unfortunity people are at a all time debt limit. Other than that boy oh boy has he taken on a monster , but I have the confidence in him to do what he says. God bless President Trump, may God himself keep him and his family safe in his right hand, I don’t believe the general public understands just how corrupt things are, what he has tangled with

    Sorry but President PussyGrabber aint doing shit for you bud. A self admitted sex offender is driving the US towards Fascism. Rex Tillerson isn’t anti-establishemnt

    you didn’t mention Bush/Cheney?….Bush tax cuts? Caps on lawsuits? Deregulation? Putting 2 wars on the credit card?

    Obama was a clean up president, he didnt get to assume power when the country was in a surplus like Bush did. You also didn’t mention how the Tea Party attempted to devestate and hold the country hostage until Obama repealed Obamacare (the only president to effectively pass ANY healthcare Law). The grand scheme was to make sure the Black President doesn’t get any credit. All the blame will fall on him.

    What is true is Wallstreet greed is what always gets in this shit (see Black Tuesday; or the Savings & Loans scandal in the 80s)

    And Pres. PussyGrabber just passed deregulations yesterday.

    Good article and well researched.

      All the comments in this article are well presented but yours seem to highlight a crude use of words to deflect from the topic and change the course with sensationalized remarks. It is a disappointment after reading such a good article and the excellent comments before you.

  7. Chuck Finnley says:

    Thank you for the very insightful article. I think its quite obvious that at least a financial downturn and more likely a major financial depression is very likely in the next 7 years. You seem to be rather fond of a president rolling back Dodd-Frank regulations, which is surprising. I personally think, if anything Trump is unknowingly helping to set us up to conditions similar to that prior to the great depression or more accurately 2008, because of the similar wartime economic strain. The one thing I am 100% sure of is when the next financial crisis does happen, the left will waist their time blaming the right and the right will waste their time blaming the left. and neither side will do anything of any value.
