Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him

Cognitive dissonance is a powerful drug. It makes otherwise-very-intelligent people goofy and incoherent in their thinking and blinds them to certain realities that they should normally see right in front of their noses. I witness it all the time in the field of economics — a key piece of logic, a key fact that certain people absolutely refuse to take into account simply because they have a singular idea of how the world works and they cannot allow that idea to ever come into question. They would rather leap into a mental gymnastics routine worthy of an Olympic gold medal than examine the truth. And if you confront them on it, they’ll accuse YOU of being the one in denial.

This is how we ended up with the credit crisis and market crash of 2008/2009. This is how very few people saw the writing on the wall with Syria and ISIS and the fact that the funding and training of Islamic extremists by Western governments for the purpose of proxy insurgency might not be such a great concept. It is the reason why it took years for the mainstream to acknowledge the advent of the East/West paradigm, the same paradigm that alternative analysts warned about years in advance. This is why most mainstream AND alternative analysts completely discounted a successful Brexit referendum.  And, it is why the vast majority of pundits could not even conceive of a Trump victory in 2016.  I could write a list 20 pages long on all the geopolitical and fiscal developments most people missed because they were clinging to assumptions rather than evidence.

Unfortunately, the liberty movement is also sometimes vulnerable to such assumptions. The most dangerous of which revolve around the rise of President-elect Donald Trump.

I have seen endless theories over the past several months on all the ways in which the global elites would sabotage the Trump campaign. I believe the phrase “they will never allow him to win” was repeated in nearly every discussion on the election. The assumption in this instance was that Trump is “anti-establishment” and, therefore, a threat to the globalists. These are the same globalists that people also claimed would “rig the election,” or initiate a “coup” in the electoral college to stop a Trump presidency.

Of course, this never happened. So, a large percentage of the movement needs to question — why didn’t it happen? How did Trump win within a system we know has been rigged for decades?

You’ll hear hundreds of theories and rationalizations on Trump’s miraculous victory, but a reason you will almost never hear is also the most likely one: Trump won the election because he serves the interests of the establishment. Trump won because he is a fake.

This is not an idea that many liberty activists want to entertain. They were so repulsed by the proposition of Hillary Clinton taking the helm at the White House that they would have invested themselves in almost ANYONE running against her, even if they thought that candidate might be controlled opposition. However, not just anyone was fielded as a candidate; Trump was fielded, and for good reason.  I predicted before the Republican and Democratic primaries that the final election would be between Trump and Clinton in my article Will A Trump Presidency Really Change Anything For The Better?, published in March, and here is a quote on why:

"The other ingenious aspect of the Trump campaign is really who he is running against — Hillary Clinton, a rabidly liberal candidate even more hated than Barack Obama. A candidate with a potentially serious criminal record and a penchant for an outright communistic world view far beyond that of Bernie Sanders. Those of us who have been in the writing field for a long time and have dabbled in fiction know that in order to create a fantastic hero, you must first put even more work into creating a fantastic villain. The hero is nothing without the villain.

The unmitigated horror inherent in the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is like adding jet fuel to the Trump campaign. (And yes, I am assuming according to the results of the primaries so far that the final election will be between Trump and Clinton)."

My point back then as well as now is that without Clinton as the counter-party, Trump would not have garnered the political following he did.  Any other Democratic candidate would not have galvanized conservatives so fervently. As I continued in my pre-primaries article:

“Donald Trump appears to be the perfect antithesis to Hillary Clinton. … the real question is, is Trump a reflection of the frustration and defiance of the conservative population, or, is he a clever ruse by the establishment to co-opt and placate the conservative population before we rebel?”

The staging of the 2016 election might have appeared to some people to be absolute chaos, but to me, it could not have been more perfectly scripted. In later articles covering the election I went on to give Trump a chance.  I stated that I had little doubt that he would win the election and that this would be followed by an economic crisis, probably triggered early in his first term.  Conservative movements would be set up as scapegoats for a crash the globalists had created. However, I believed it (marginally) possible that Trump was not aware of this strategy on the part of the elites. Today, I no longer hold this view.

The first and worst sign that Trump is not anywhere near “anti-establishment” has been his complete reversal of his original “drain the swamp” rhetoric. Trump is not only NOT draining the swamp that is the Washington D.C. and corporate elitist revolving door, he is adding even more creatures of varying ghoulishness.  As Newt Gingrich, who describes himself as an outside adviser to Trump, recently stated:

“I’m told he now just disclaims that…” [Draining the swamp] “He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore…”

There is a good reason why Trump no longer wants to use that particular slogan — his cabinet is now filled with the exact same elitists he used to slam along with the Washington establishment.

Trump first placed former Goldman Sachs partner Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary. Goldman Sachs has a long history of insinuating its alumni into vital positions within government bodies dealing directly with the economy.  Mnuchin is particularly troubling because of his ties to George Soros; Mnuchin used to work directly for George Soros at Soros Fund Management up until 2004.

Then, for those people that thought maybe Mnuchin was just an anomaly, Trump added Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs, as the director of the National Economic Council.

Trump’s chief strategist and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon is also a former Goldman Sachs investment banker.

It is interesting to note that over a quarter of the gains in the delusional Dow Jones spike after Trump’s election was tied to a rise in Goldman Sachs stock value.  Imagine that…

Trump is also now “advised” on economic matters by the likes of JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon. Are we starting to get the picture here?

If that is not enough, then how about the fact that Trump is being closely advised by long time globalist Henry Kissinger (just as Vladimir Putin is advised by Kissinger)?  I'm not sure why so many people are surprised by this arrangement; Trump was meeting with Kissinger months before the election. No matter the administration, there is ALWAYS a high level globalist behind the curtain.  Barack Obama had Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Trump and Putin have Kissinger.

I won’t go into the numerous establishment Republicans that Trump has tapped for his administration, I will save that can of worms for another article, but anyone in the Liberty Movement that is not at least generally suspicious of Trump at this point is probably kidding themselves.  The bottom line is, Trump has already LIED to his political base.  He has surrounded himself with globalists and financial gatekeepers when he originally criticized Clinton for the same behavior.  At this point, as long as he working in close proximity with such parasites there is no way for us to know if he is calling the shots, or if his handlers are making decisions for him.

I have heard it argued that Trump “has no choices” outside of D.C. insiders, which is why his cabinet is loaded with bottom feeders from Goldman Sachs. I find this argument rather naive. I would argue that there are thousands of brilliant professionals and people far more trustworthy outside of the beltway that could populate Trump’s cabinet and “make America great again.”  I would even argue that ANY person with little experience inside the D.C. corruption chamber would be better suited to the job.

It seems to me that there are some activists that just can’t let go of the notion that Trump was the candidate the elites wanted all along.  After all, didn’t the powers-that-be do everything in their power to try and stop him from winning the election?

Well, not really.  The media firestorm surrounding Trump, though highly negative in tone, only boosted Trump’s exposure throughout the election. In fact, Trump received more coverage from outlets like CNN than all the other candidates combined.

This was the exact opposite tactic that the elitist controlled media used against true liberty candidate Ron Paul in 2012. With Paul, the media went out of their way to ignore him; they even refused to show a single Ron Paul campaign sign in a crowd if they could avoid it. This was a concerted systematic effort on the part of left AND right wing media outlets to ensure that no one outside of the internet heard about Ron Paul.

So what happened with Trump? Why did the mainstream media abandon a strategy that was very effective against Ron Paul, and why did they give Trump endless free coverage?

The elites also did not take very stringent measures to disrupt Trump’s candidacy early in the race. The Republican National Convention undertook a campaign of disinformation and rule changes in order to ensure that Ron Paul would have no chance of organizing an upset against establishment choice Mitt Romney. The same exact kind of treachery was used by the DNC in 2016 to sabotage Bernie Sanders arguably a far more popular and effective candidate than Hillary Clinton. The party elites have numerous tools at their disposal to kill a candidate’s chances before he or she ever makes it on the national stage, yet, we are supposed to believe that Trump just slipped through the cracks, or beat them at their own game?  I think not.

The election itself was riddled with email leaks and data dumps showcasing the corruption of the Clinton campaign, and yes, this did help to ensure a Trump win. The accusations of “Russian hacking” is clearly a sideshow, but the question remains, who did feed that information to Wikileaks? Some theorize that “disgruntled employees” within the U.S. intelligence apparatus may have leaked the data. I think they were not disgruntled. I think that most of the leaks were part of the election theater from the very beginning. In light of Trump’s clear goal to entrench banking vampires within his administration, I think that the elites always intended for him to “win” the election.

Of course, for some in the liberty movement this claim is sacrilegious. They don’t want to hear it, they’ll hate me for saying it, and that’s fine.  I started my work in 2006 during the Bush years, and I remember quite well what it was like.  I have little doubt that some people will be accusing me of being a "liberal" before they even finish this article, just as people called me a "Neo-Con" during the Obama administration.  People who held fast to "conspiracy theories" surrounding the election and how Clinton was the "chosen one" will now hypocritically call me a "conspiracy theorist" for pointing out that NO ONE gets into the White House without being vetted by the elites, even Trump.

Working in alternative media means not caring if people like you or dislike you. I’ve been able to make numerous correct predictions because I do not concern myself with the pressures of conforming to group-think. My only hope is that many in the movement realize sooner rather than later that their faith in Trump has been ill invested. The great danger is that the liberty movement, the best last chance for saving this nation, will sit on its collective hands idle, centralizing all their hopes and eggs into the Trump basket, waiting for him to gallop in on his white horse and save us all from oblivion. And when that time comes, I suspect that he will do nothing, and the movement will be neutralized by its own desperate desire for a hero and an idol.

Love it!!
written by Visitor , December 30, 2016

I haven't considered myself to be a member of the "liberty movement" per se. If asked, I would say I was a constitutional conservative with a very cynical eye on the body politic. NOTHING surprises me. For the whole election I was confident that Hillary was the elites choice, but slowly my assumption changed up as I saw how much free screen time Trump was getting, and I NEVER believed he'd suddenly been struck 'conservative' or that any of the bodacious claims he made were done deals.

What is a done deal is that the One World Elites have been orchestrating the show for much longer than most of us know. I have no expectations about being rescued or having things set right by Trump. Not because I'm so smart, but as I said I'm a cynic and I have read the Revelation. Times and actors are taking their marks, and the show is set to begin. My consolation, outside of being a believer in Christ the Lord, is that these One World Elites are in for a VERY BIG surprise! LOL

super-hero vs villain
written by Carolyn granada , December 30, 2016

throughout the campaign I kept thinking that there couldn't possibly be a better scripted play if it was made in Hollywood. Sort of right out of super-hero vs villain comic book genre but in real life. You couldn't make up a worse and vile politician than the witch.

Well, just hope trump follows through on most of what he campaigned on.

All auditioned (for the Elite)
written by NH Watcher , December 30, 2016

Another very important read and worthwhile article from Brandon. Was Trump tapped all along? Maybe not. But was he tapped in the end? Most definitely yes.

From the beginning, I believe all were auditioning for the Elite, whether they knew it or not. Certainly Obama knew it, and there is ample evidence on the Net that he was auditioning for a third term via martial law. Certainly Hillary knew it, as she had already been there will Bill, and probably felt the most capable of bringing the United States into the NWO.

Brandon is so correct, however, that it is more deadly to "ignore" someone than attack them head on. Thus, the difference we saw between Trump and Paul, in connection to the Elite's intentions. I remember a sci-fi movie years ago, in response to prison overcrowding, a mark was placed on newly-convicted criminals who were then re-released into society; the mark signifying to the populace to ignore them. At first, these criminals with the mark thought it wonderful: they could do as they pleased with no ramifications. But over time, intense loneliness set in, the need for someone to pay attention, to acknowledge them, when no one was. This proved to be the more sinister punishment.

Blaming the Liberty Movement, the Alt-Right, Conservatives, Evangelical Christians ... in the end, blaming God, fits far better into the Elite's playbook ... and now Trump is their pawn. No doubt he has been promised protection, for both him and his family, and he may even be duped already to believe that the NWO is the only reasonable alternative to the mess the world is in. If the reports that Trump has become a born-again believer are true, I pray that he sees the light soon, but since Lucifer was the light-bearer of God before his fall, he is very clever and capable of deception in manipulating that same light.

We all must stay "Protestant," that is, continually protesting any notion that all is settled, that we should now be quiet and content. Brandon, please keep writing (and I trust you will no matter how much flack you receive). It is not disingenuous to have voted for Trump and to hold him accountable from day one; he is elected President, not King ... though often I see people confuse the two.

Remember, no one may play God except God Himself.

If it is to be...
written by shutupnsing , December 30, 2016

“What a world”…the wicked witch cried, as she melted into a puddle. You and Barnhardt are the two I read most. And you both, for different reasons, dismiss Trump as fake, phony, fraud. I’m the devil’s advocate, let’s just say, to keep it interesting. In fact, I don’t think it’s a question of Elite vs Brandon any more than it was about Hitler vs Churchill, or the Witch vs Dorothy. It is all about Good vs Evil and the same role Providence has played in our affairs since the Fall. From Jamestown to Plymouth Rock to Bunker Hill, etc. With respect, Brandon…you miss a light within ourselves that was fed by a source far greater than what you conjure, on Nov 8.

Relations....
written by VISTA TOULON , December 30, 2016

All of the Presidents of the US have been related (part of the same bloodline). I have heard that Trump is a distant cousin of the Clintons, so he was a qualified family member.

He has been being groomed for President since the 1980's, when he was first asked about running by Oprah in 1988.

I would venture to say that there is not a single billionaire on the face of the earth that has not been made and owned by the "money changers". It is simply not possible to make that much money legitimately and without the support and favors of the criminal banksters.

Brandons "Nail on the Head" statement of this article is that the "he... a clever ruse by the establishment to co-opt and placate the conservative population before we rebel?”

If we learned one thing from Obama, it is that no matter how BIG the lies you tell to get into office, nor how many and how blatant, there is no consequence for telling even bigger lies once you get there.

Ask yourself, what is the best way to get majority support for ANYTHING in the post mainstream news era? If you guessed massive internet and alternative media coverage, give yourself a cookie. If anything, the independent media has been duped, co-opted, and used against the very people they seek to help by making the lies of Trump believable.

When it all gets down to the bone, there is only one issue that needs to be addressed by the independent media. The power to create money, and taking it away from those who stole it.

Imagine if all of the IM sites worked as hard and as much together toward ending the Fed scam (and banking scams worldwide) as they did to get Trump elected.

Oddly enough, I believe that we could win the war if we would focus on the REAL enemy and its source of power.

Sadly, when even our own soldiers are so easily duped and brainwashed, and so unaware of the ACTUAL enemy we all face as human beings, it is reasonable to conclude that we are doomed.

---------

Another great article Brandon. Keep up the good work on exposing the inner workings and strategies of the enemy, even if most refuse to see who it really is.

One more excellent article. Only one thing does not fit wholly. I thing you are right about election and media on R.P. But Ron Paul is big supporter of V. Putin for some years. He is not blind, he is bogus like Trump. He is puppet on behalf of dualizm. See how people were divided into boxes, everybody want to identify with any of it. It is trap, like we see now with Trump. Where are the principles??? Hillary should sit in pretrial detention and Trump should be kicked out for his nominations. And now the battle can begin on all fronts, not just in the USA. Thanks for your article, Brandon Smith, I always look forward when you write new.

My opinion is that the final proof of your theory will be the occurrence of an economic crisis in 2017. So, we will see whether Trump will "make America strong again" or whether we will see a crash. It is a very simple test; and if you are right, we will not have to wait very long.

"it seems like maybe he is the best man for the job, let's see if we can get him on board" - overheard in a goldman sachs elevator.

We will know the truth when our soon to be elected puppet stops using twitter and starts using executive orders.

The decline in our republic became obvious to me when the executive branch was allowed to engage in acts of war/aggression without consent of congress.

Now we have our first pseudo dictator, who really loves the deep state and the power brokers of wall street.

Mnuchin
written by Zap , December 30, 2016

8 years ago I knew that in spite of all of Obama's leftist rhetoric and even radical left connections that he was just going to be another CFR, Tri Lateral Commission, Bilderberg Group central banker sock puppet....same as George Bush or Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Nixon etc because I saw Soros the CFR bag man/front man leading him around before the election.....this was confirmed immediately after the election with this.

Indymac......if you want to know how Soros the CFR bag man makes money this is how, note the terms of the deal!

All losses after the first 20% to be absorbed by the public treasury....a few percentage points of maximum downside risk for the members of the consortium with unlimited upside earnings potential!!! And earn they certainly did. This is how these people become billionaires, on rigged trades and freebies.

As this relates to Trump notice who is also part of this "free money for financiers" deal......Steven Mnuchin

So here we are 8 years later and it is the same old thing.

No changes under Trump.....this along with his other appointments and the fact he is consulting with notorious David Rockefeller CFR, TLC, BG made man/strategist/mouthpiece Henry Kissinger is enough to convince me.

Hilary of course would have been the same seeing as Bill was a Rockefeller creation as well.

Chocolate
written by Frank W. Hooper , December 30, 2016

In August when our White Knight announces a reduction in the chocolate ration and we praise him for his incredible generosity we will know who was right.
In the beginning of 1984 Orwell explains how constant war between the 3 major powers is needed to keep the public in fear so they can't think properly and see the ruse.
The alliances change often enough to prevent one from becoming too powerful. Trump will pretend to mend fences with Russia after the fake cold war II was begun in order to contain China. The whisperings are becoming a low rumble in the elite publications. Why? War is always being raged over the resources of Africa. China is making huge inroads into Africa and South America. I'm just pointing this out to substantiate Brandons point that a clever ruse was staged to get Trump elected and readers don't think it could be pulled off. Since Arab Spring all of North and Central Africa has been re-conquered by NATO and nobody blinked. All in the name of democracy and capitalism.
The fake conservatives "Faux-Cons" are our worst enemy and have been for a long time. The Survivalist Forums are controlled by them just to name an example.
They will demand the release of Barabbus in place of us unwashed trouble makers. But take heart. Most revolutions are fought by just 5 or 10% of the population until a clear winner is in sight.

"sheep may safely graze..."
written by Steve B. , December 30, 2016

...as Bach wrote in Cantata 208. But not true.

From early childhood through around 7 years old, children are just downloading machines for whatever is pumped into their heads. There is no conscious/critical mind. Some of it is useful, but much of it is not, as the parents are just funneling the rubbish they were inculcated with. And so you get left wing oriented and right wing oriented sheep depending on this download and other factors too numerous to mention. The rest of one's life should be spent critically examining the download. Virtually nobody does.

I haven't voted in 20 years as nothing about politics is other than mind manipulation. Some programs are better than others, but basically it's for fools. And that includes Trump. As I titled an earlier comment that Trump was "just another psy-op," citing the aangirfan website for the abundant evidence that Trump was a gangster mentored by Roy Cohn and the Meyer Lansky kosher nostra, not to mention involvement with prostitution, racketeering, Jeffrey Epstein (whom Bill Clinton--maybe also Hillary--was also a client of), Kissinger and the NYC real estate industry, a rotten vessel to its core. He also appears to be a crypto Jew, as his late brother openly said of the family (not a negative comment about Jews, but surely one about the Zionist state and its place in the NWO). I also opined that Hillary was set up to be thrown under the bus, as she stank like a public toilet. So did Trump, but we weren't told, were we? Aangirfan laid it all out but the Fake Media couldn't?

We are now going to get Zionism in its naked form. And the emergence of the hunger games society. Trump is going to truly bankrupt the country through tax cuts and profligate spending. Zoltan Istvan (a singularity guru) says that helicopter money is now inevitable, as robots replace, well, nearly everyone. Is Trump going to manage this or encourage this? Wanna guess? How many of the members of this now universal welfare state (fully actualized sheep) will be allowed to live? And even more insane militarism, as the US is used to finally militarily standardize the world for the NWO. Under the guise of conservatism, of course. This is where the right wing download bias leads. Just look at the buffoonery Michael Snyder is pumping out recently. And all those who jumped on the Trump bandwagon: Alex Jones (surely an imposter), Rense (another one?), even Mike Adams, whose red neck is blistering without the sunshine. Many others. From the liberal Obama redemptive fraud to the right wing redemptive Trump hero fraud. On and on it goes. Same psy-op, piece of cake. Perhaps the "redemptive agony" is one of the most serious downloads of them all.

It never changes, and both sides rummage for the same redemption. Just the basic bias differs, but the end of each road is ruin.We're going to be taken down now in accelerated form. There is no true conservatism or liberalism, at least in the sense of what is fair and just. Just manufactured bullshit. Which is why only true voluntarism can work. That question in turn depends on what flavor the person or collection of persons is. And that may come in "right wing" or "left wing" forms. Except we've never seen it, at least in history as we know it.

The new End game?
written by Jon L , December 30, 2016

At some point you have to agree that either we are being played completely or that God has intervened into the picture. If you however decide that we are being completely played, then we might as well except our fate.
If on the other hand, we decide God has intervened and is about to show us his hand, as I know I was one of many who prayed for change.
Now before I get a lot of people attacking me for the religious end, let us see how I got here. First thank God for the alternative media of the Internet!
If it wasn't for this I would just be a zombie waiting for the apocalypse!
So after reading the coming collapse of the petrodollar system by Jerry Robinson and also studying John Perkins and his knowledge of how things work in the world, his book "confessions of an economic hitman", helped me see much more.
And I wouldn't have even gotten that far if it hadn't been for studying finance and economics.
So before we all condemn the man, let's let him get in office first shall we.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss
written by Mike Farmer , December 31, 2016

The globalist leave nothing to chance. There is a plan in place, ready to go, for either candidate. If the new POTUS is not in the club, he gets surrounded by staff and cabinet people who are in the club (Carter,Reagan and Bush43). If their candidate wins (Johnson, Nixon/Ford, Bush41, Clinton) it is business as usual. Not since Kennedy surrounded himself with outside staff and cabinet has a more drastic action been required. Whatever Trump is now, he will either play ball with these people or he will be hit by a pitch and removed from the game.

Other factors
written by Ronnz , December 31, 2016

Major property investors such as Trump, as well as those that he rubs shoulders with who dominate the gambling industry, all have skin in the game of making America great again. Social chaos and a breakdown of the social order, (i.e., where America was fast heading under Obama et al) is a total anathema to their business interests. (Consider that property values and general business prospects in Aleppo are not exactly buoyant right now.) This being so, it seems to me that Trump may well have begun his campaign as an outsider who represents a highly influential but different group of elite to those who have been running the show in recent times. If my surmising is correct, then the turf wars we are seeing will only get worse, unless (and until) he is reigned in and a deal cut. In terms of my scenario and what Brandon has suggested, that process might already be fairly advanced.

Readers will be aware that the recurrent commercial boom/bust cycle we have gotten used to is largely a contrived thing where the banks saturate the market with cheap easy credit until greed so overcomes prudence that a significant proportion of investors get themselves hopelessly overstretched. Then the the banks tighten credit, raise interest rates and move in for the kill. The recent interest rate rise with the promise of more to come is a sure sign that Trump or no Trump, the trap is soon to be sprung again. This has been the pattern that economic collapses have followed since at least the 80’s, but this time, instead of a recovery, the resultant turmoil, chaos and widespread suffering will be exploited to the max as a means to impose a world government under which no-one will buy or sell without first submitting to its tyranny.

Strong points but...
written by JayTe , December 31, 2016

Brandon, You make some very strong points. At the same time there are lots of people who worked for Goldman who in their own way fighting against the establishment, the most obvious example being Nomi Prins. At the same time, the Machiavellian in me would probably do something similar to Trump in bringing certain globalists very close to not only know their plans but also to leverage them when needed. My view is that Putin is more than happy to talk with Kissinger but doesn't always heed his counsel (Their last meeting about 2 years ago where he tried to get Putin on board for their regime change strategy in the Middle East being a clear example). Trying to completely exclude them is just nonsensical because you show your cards very early and setup an immediate adversarial relationship against people who are still very powerful. Yes, the less than 1% are going to organise a crash. The question is how do you deal with the crash? Ideally you let them all go into administration, but short of that if you want to leverage people like Jamie Dimon, in return for saving (or partially saving) their banks where they go through some sort of technical administration you have them sell bonds to finance infrastructure.

As for your comment about the Republican party manipulating the election, I have 2 counterpoints. First it would be very dangerous for them to have attempted to do that twice (in fact that is what they did in the Iowa caucus if you remember). Second I think you forget that Trump hired the guy (I forget his name) who is considered to be the BEST ELECTORAL LAWYER IN THE COUNTRY!!! A bit difficult to manipulate events on the ground when there is someone who knows intimately the electoral laws in every state are insuring that the letter of the law is being followed by your party.

Ultimately you may be right and I like your thinking. What's clear is that Trump has telegraphed a strategy of trying to split up Russia and China by being nice to Russia and hard on China. I don't think it will be successful since the amount of growth that will come off the back of OBOR is staggering.

Same old, same old
written by Pbt777 , December 31, 2016

As an awake conservative, I was hopeful, yet highly suspicious of Trump right from the beginning. Of course, unless you were a complete narcissist, why would anyone in Trump's position want to subject himself and his family to the madness that comes from being a conservative "anti-establishment" politician, let alone president. Now, I put anti-establishment in quotes because I believe as Brandon writes here that Trump is no outsider. He wasted no time (as is typical of politicians) in abandoning his base of support and his campaign promises. 2017 should be interesting to watch. Prayerfully, through God's protection, we will be watching from the outside. Psalm 91:7-8 reads, "A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked." Reward them Lord, reward them!!

Bernie is no Socialist and more.
written by Lea , December 31, 2016

Bernie Sanders is neither a communist, nor a socialist. He is just one of those progressive social justice devotees the USA confuses with left-wingers.

Socialism/communism is not about the defense of minorities or "progressive societal values", it is about the defense of the interests of the vast majority. What the Americans call "cultural Marxism" is only a hideous distortion of Marx's thought, courtesy of the Cold War relentless commie-derailing propaganda efforts.

Socialism/Communism is only defined as: No private sector at all. Everything, from banks to industrial production to retail stores, is State-owned. As a result, since it produces and sells everything, the State is rich, the taxes are low, the health system, the roads and infrastructure, the school system are free, etc.
Take it or leave it, it is that and nothing else.

Where did Bernie Sanders even vaguely considered nationalizing anything? If the answer is "nowhere", then there is no way he can be considered a socialist, let alone a communist (phase two after the socialist State Uber-control of the economic life. Communism is only a theory where the State disappears totally, and the people own everything collectively. Even though its aim is probably commendable -- i.e, it purports to aim at full responsibility of every member of society for himself and the rest of society --, Communism is unworkable, which is why even the Bolsheviks called their country "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics", not "Communist")

Mr Smith, you rightly speak of Trump as a globalist tool. Of course he is. Have you seen his new "8000 jobs" in the USA? How did he get that? Tax incentives, of course. Meaning the US taxpayer will ultimately pay for those jobs. The thing is, Trump cannot get a better deal, because no one can. Companies are no charities. Their business is about making as much as they can in any way they see fit, not job creation.

The only way to tame those beasts is by nationalizing them. Keep them in the country, reap all the profits (instead of just the tax-money they try their best to evade), get their employees to work for proper wages so they have money to consume their production, it's a win-win.
But then, that would make Trump a socialist, and we wouldn't want that, would we? So it's back to square one: tax incentives. Concessions. Kowtowing to big
money. Some artificial taxpayer-funded boosts, but no real solution. The paradigm of American capitalism (the "sacredness of private property", if you will) does not allow for more.

There is a old saying, "the dog has four legs but takes only one path", meaning the simplest solutions are often the best. When a criminal working for his own benefit or pleasure endangers society, the only way is to jail him or her. When a company works for its own benefit against the interest of the whole of society, the only way is to nationalize it, period. All the rest is only going around in circles and ultimately losing -- because, by depriving itself of any means of blackmailing these companies into working for the benefit of the US citizens through threatening them with the loss of their assets, the USA also deprives itself from any power at all over them. These private companies, banks, etc, are free to get the country to play by their rules and rig everything in their favour. There is no way out.
The only solution lies in thinking outside the box, in this case the capitalist box.

@Jayte

First, Trump has SURROUNDED himself with not just Goldman boys, but Neo-Cons from the Bush admin. Many of these people are top level elites. He even has the HEAD of Goldman Sachs in his cabinet. I think you are understating the situation.

Second, Putin openly supports the IMF and their bid for a global currency system, and, he openly supports the UN's carbon taxation agenda. That, and Kissinger is his "good friend".

Third, the Republican and Democratic parties manipulate EVERY primary to exclude candidates they don't like. The issue is that such people (like Ron Paul) rarely ever make it that far. My point is, if Trump really is a devastating threat to the elites, they NEVER would have allowed him through the primaries. Period. These people SHOOT presidents, I hardly think they care how it looks if they manipulate yet another primary.

Fourth, Trump never needed an election lawyer because he was clearly the elites choice from the very beginning. He has lied over and over again about "draining the swamp" and this is simply unforgivable. Nothing he says from this point on can be trusted while he is surrounded by elites.

Bernie Sanders believes in government-run EVERYTHING, and he calls himself a "Democratic Socialist" Just look at his political history:

http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-1021-mcmanus-sanders-socialism-20151021-column.html

I'm sorry, but there is this serious delusion out there in terms of socialism, mostly from people in Europe because they have been so indoctrinated by it. They seem to think they can keep redefining it whenever one version fails so that they can continue to claim that the failed version was not "real" socialism.

Socialism is big government dictating most things, Communism is big government dictating ALL things, and doing so with an added zest of force. I don't go by the academic definitions; they are meaningless. I go by the idea as it is consistently applied.

Socialism is a close precursor to communism. Period. Communism is not a theory, it is historically applied fact. Just because it failed to deliver that does not mean that now the applied fact is no longer "true communism".

What's interesting is you use the term "capitalism" which is a bullshit term made up by Marx. So, you've gone rather hypocritical, there. Now FREE MARKETS are a real idea and have been applied SUCCESSFULLY in the real world. Free markets work as long as government does not interfere, or give special powers to certain elements of the market. This is free markets 101; yet socialists seem to have no grasp of it whatsoever. They are too busy pontificating about the evils of "corporations".

Well, guess what, corporations are a creation of big government, too! Government created the legal framework of corporate personhood and limited liability. Without socialism, corporations could not exist. Socialism and government are the problem, the free markets have always been the solution. This is why the elites have gone far out of their way to ensure that free markets have not existed in the world in at least a century.

Sorry, but you are just another highly misinformed socialist. There are millions of you it seems.

Any alternative solution?
written by Hubbs , December 31, 2016

It seems that no matter what system gets installed, be it communist/socialist to complete lassiez-faire "free markets" there is always a drift to other perversions, i.e., capitalism, fascism (duopoly control of govt and corporation) or even complete breakdown/anarchy.

True money as a store of value and medium of exchange is one of the absolute requirements for free market preservation. The other is an iron clad system of laws for refereeing markets to avoid unfair competitive practices which undermine free markets. How to separate government cronyism from impartial rule of law in refereeing against unfair competitive practices is the problem.

Of course one could argue that true laissez-fair economies theoretically shouldn't require any referee. Although that might work in smaller economies, I don't know if it can be applied in highly complex ones.

Email leaks to fracture/undermind Faith in US?
written by Thinker , December 31, 2016

Hey Brandon, I'm wondering if you could elaborate a little more on the email leaks, particularly with the whole 'pizzagate' thing. I've been wondering for quite some time if these 'leaks' coming out are really just limited-hangouts that serve a few different purposes in the elite's long-game:

First and foremost, covertly operating Wikileaks would be the perfect honeypot to identify whistleblowers and run any leaks through a filter before the information reaches the public. Then, the 'leaking' of selected information could be used to their advantage as a controlled psychological operation to manipulate public perception and political discourse, to send serious researchers and activists on wild-goose chases to keep them distracted.

But perhaps most important of all, this controlled leaking of information serves to increase cognitive dissonance across the board and ultimately undermine the public's faith in our system of government on both the left and the right side of the spectrum - on the left because we now have the new 'Hitler' as president, and because of the Russians, and fake news, etc, and then on the right as well by 'showing' us just how corrupted the entire political process has become, such that even when evidence of crimes is leaked the criminals dont get prosecuted, and instead appear to flex and flaunt their political muscle to deflect attention and blame on to a more desirable enemy and to 'fight the new anti-establishment hero'.

Further, with respect to the whole pizzagate thing (which, btw, was not so subtly 'pushed' in the very beginning by "FBI-Anon", an anonymous, supposedly disgruntled FBI insider on who got that whole ball of wax rolling on the chan boards), the Podesta emails served to remind the more well-read and researched amongst us of the horrors of Franklin and the Presisio coverups and the fact that these psychopaths are still in power by giving us just enough breadcrumbs to distract us from the larger play being made.

All of this combined creates a very powerful wave of discontent across the political spectrum, which at some point down the line (or combined with a few other 'events' or 'leaks') could ultimately result in undermining Americans faith in our system of government to such a degree that we are literally begging for something new, or for 'someone' to step in and save us from our corrupt leadership. After all, a singular world governing body is the ultimate goal of the elite, correct? And in order to acheive this, as you have repeatedly pointed out, they must destroy their oppostion ideologically. But to me, it seems that at least with respect to the US, they have to take it one step further and actually convince Americans to not just willingly give up on our country's constitutional republic, but to drive us to a point where we actually DEMAND it. And in light of the events of the past 6 months or so, it seems to me that this election and all the leaks and various narratives surrounding it are aimed at precisely this end.

So what do you think about all of this, particularly 'pizzagate'? I know you urged people to really look at the evidence a few weeks ago before dismissing it. And indeed it seems that the breadcrumbs are real enough (and anyone who has seriosusly looked into Franklin, etc knows there is a real boogie-man somewhere), but it seems that crumbs are all that is there, and I have a feeling any real hard evidence was thoroughly scrubbed before those emails were leaked and before this FBI-Anon person pointed out the trafficking codewords in them. Thoughts?

I am right on board with you Brandon about all of that as I said the moment I saw DJT's tupee in the ring that he was the controlled opposition. His job was to get the libertarians/conservatives to pop their heads up so that they could be disarmed and catalogued. I think the only piece you're missing here is that his best buddy is leader of the Zionist party. Isreals wall is to keep people in, not out, you dolts! DJT is a democrat, not a republican. I can see why they didn't get behind him. And with 54% of electorate not voting for either party, my estimation is that he wasn't "democratically" elected. His mandate from above is to make corporations more powerful than governments, imho. He will make America the Great Satan, finish off giving Israel all of the Middle East and Europe, and allow the global police state, modelled on the current state of the Zionist party regime, to come to fruition. I want nothing more than to see the Jewish people freed from this awful tyrant, so please don't think I'm anti-semetic. At this point, I can only hope Corey Goode is right....

As I noted in my article on the issue, nothing will come of Pizzagate without victims coming forward. Without victims, there is no crime. I think that too many people were hoping that Pizzagate was some kind of time bomb that was going to explode and take the elites down, but this is fantasy.

The Franklin case was much more thoroughly evidenced and had victims come forward and nothing ever happened. The reality is that the child victims of the elites will probably not get justice until there is a rebellion over their very visible economic crimes. When the dust settles we will likely find all kinds of evidence of darker crimes previously unknown. But this will be long after the fact.

Unfair practices in free markets only result from government interference and preference to certain parties. Without government, free markets balance themselves out, meaning corporatocracy cannot exist in true free markets because corporatism is only possible with government help. There is absolutely no need for government to involve itself in the economy, period. The only job they are given Constitutionally is the issuance of currency, and they handed that job over to a group of people they gave preference, and thus unfair power, to.

I would suggest not just Keynesian economics, but Austrian economics. How the system works and how it goes wrong. Everything from democracy, socialism, communism. We cannot water down or lie to her children.
If this is not done, then we're at the mercy of the elites to play us all over again in another generation. I hope that Trump will break up the banks and get rid of the federal reserve.

Unfortunately, I agree. When it broke and I first began looking into it, I was amongst the many hoping those emails would lead to exposing some of the darker crimes of TPTB, but you are correct that previous investigations have had much more tangible evidence, including witnesses and victims, and still went nowhere. So the notion that a few digital breadcrumbs will lead to bringing it all crashing down does indeed seem like fantasy.

I'm currently reading "Deconstructing Wikileaks" by Daniel Estulin. I must say Estulin is another author/researcher that, after reading about his background, I am somewhat suspicious of being a 'limited hangout' / disinfo specialist, though that could easily just be my skepticism and cynicism running a little too wild), but this examination of Wikileaks funding sources is well researched and sourced, and in it Estulin details some rather disturbing financial ties between Wikileaks and a few different Globalist/Intelligence connected organizations and NPOs. You may have already read or are aware of it, but I figured I'd mention it in case you need any ammunition or research leads to support your suspicions and claims about these leaks and the role they are playing in the currently unfolding political drama, as the original sources Estulin cites therein could prove useful in that regard.

written by Wayne Hayes , December 31, 2016

Brandon - do you have much time for Peter Schiff?

Like you he is predicting a monumental crash and his logic seems pretty sound: the fundamentals are just dire! he knows fine well that the economic indicators Joe Public rely on are massaged/falsified and not even important to begin with.

There is one big difference in his analysis though. He thinks that the FED will splurge in a ginormous QE4 while if I read you correctly you are saying the FED will not do this because they want to deliberately crash the economy.

His logic for QE is that rate rises will damage the stock market, damage the housing market and so consumer spending will plummet, foreclosures will exacerbate this and so forth. So the banks will take a huge hit as well.

I know the FED don't care about Joe Public but when the banks start squealing in pain won't the FED feel forced into QE to keep rates low? The FED is controlled by bankers at the end of the day and these banker CEOs won't be happy to see their precious banks go up in flames.

Surely the pressure on the FED would be enormous?

Do you reckon the FED will tough it out and resist the calls for QE?

Interestingly Schiff's opinion is that the FED should NOT do QE4 and that they should allow a crash to occur to get the pain out the way, done and dusted. But he thinks they will relent and do such an enormous QE4 that we will see inflation, loss of confidence in the dollar and inevitably a dollar collapse via that route.

I'd be very grateful for your thoughts. I enjoy reading your comments below the line as much as the articles!

YES.....YES.....AND "YES"......BUT!
written by luri , December 31, 2016

BRANDON,

so here is a thought to 'throw' into the soup! the thought - "The [D]elites - { for the record, i am unable to bring myself to reverse "honor" these psychopaths by calling them "elites" - so i call them [d]elites}........ the [d]elites are far from "finished" destroying the democrats [socialists/communist]. Look how the golden veneer is being 'ripped' off from the chosen one Obama and the truth is being exposed visa v. [elections/russia - syria/isis connection, and the lost unipolar hegemony to russia/china - fake obama economy - fake obamacare....etc - and exposing the fake media continuing and fully conscripting to being the obama/clinton democratic lap dogs for propaganda.]

Could it be that the economic crash comes in a way that Obama is blamed?? Could the propaganda indexes of the DOW and S&P meet their reality before the inauguration and crash "starting" the public on living through the optics of the 'greater' depression?? [even though i think we are currently living an 'economic' depression and have been since 2008].

So why would they do this - crash the propaganda indexes at this time to blame Obama? versus in 6 months into the Trump administration and blame mainly Trump?

could it be that the 'plan' of the [d]elites is to completely crush BOTH ideological sides as manifested through the 'left' / 'right', democratic/ republican paradigms?

Trump will fail royally because there is no way for one man or administration to overcome the economic tsunami from the collapse of a world wide historic 'debt' bubble [and loss of reserve currency]. Trump and the republicans will lose populist backing for generations.

the Democrats paradigm will fail and be lost because they will also be blamed for this collapse, along with the massive 'corruption' that Trump's administration will expose in the first years of office.

why kill them both? could they have planned to have 4 or 5 new populist parties that begin to rule in coalition - instead of just 2?? much along the lines of SPAIN? Look how neutered the Spanish political system is as a result of no ONE party being able to have the mandate to rule unopposed?

How weak would the USA be with a 4 or 5 party state. The whole idea of 'globalism' is that there can be no ONE nation state that can be so powerful again, as to rival the globalist one. Better to make smaller the 'regions' [break apart the European Union back to smaller states - which has already begun] and better to castrate the political powers of each nation state [within a new greater multi polar world] - with too much political choice for the population.

So do the [D]ELITES want to eviscerate BOTH sides here incrementally introduce a NEW multiple party political system for the USA, one that ensures a neutered political state?

Is this a last HORRAH for the duality of it all? A 'multi' polar world needs to reflect greater popular choice and a greater 'democracy' than a 'uni polar' one. [Gone are the ideas of unipolar that is "US and THEM" - "LEFT and Right" etc]. So domestically, our unipolitical system becomes multi political?? reflecting the movement to greater options rather than less.

is that the trap???

FOR EXAMPLE, I can see them doing this world wide with 'gender' [which is and should very much be genetically 'UNI"] and switching it to 'gender' choices, one day a Bruce, the next day Caitlan [which encompasses the very ideals of 'multi']????

No. People on the left will NEVER blame Obama for a crash while Trump is in office. In fact, the media has been carefully crafting the narrative so that Obama will not be blamed. Check out my next article next week; I explain in detail exactly why the crash will be blamed on Trump.

The end result will be that conservatives and our ideals are blamed for the tragedy and the globalists will swoop in to promote their form of global socialism. At this point, yes, they hope to create a unipolar America and a unipolar world, with communism as the ultimate final form. They are sacrificing parts of the left now so that the left can "rise from the ashes" (like the phoenix) in the future.

the People have been Conquered
written by Gunston_Hall , December 31, 2016

Good article and I have been saying the same of their "federal executive office of president" for 45 years.

The structural operating republican form(s) of the several united State(s) and the general "federal government" they constituted has been conquered and overthrown and is a mere hologram of the original our founders constituted for the chattel on the plantation.

The owners/controller(s) of their embedded Monetary Theory Fraud Power own and control the stable of all its CEO's/RICO/MAFIA/"President" horses for 135 years.

They merely rolled out their "populist" AUGUST BELMONT playbook with TRUMP. Nothing new under the Sun.

Wall Street owns the country. It is no longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but a government of Wall Street, by Wall Street, and for Wall Street. The great common people of this country are slaves, and monopoly is the master. The people are at bay; let the bloodhounds of money who dogged us thus far beware. Mary Elizabeth Lease 1890

Not all are fooled
written by A concerned citizen , December 31, 2016

This blog has a solid understanding of the reactive plan. But to win a goal you have to have the initiative plan along with the resources to carry out that plan.

Being part of the technocracy I have seen in my life economies being deliberately deconstructed to consolidate the knowledge to a controlled select group.

Interesting in seeing this plan read ‘The Class-Domination Theory of Power by G. William Domhoff’.

This plan has been in the works since the 1860’s on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

No matter who wins any election in the 194 countries in the world .These leaders are co-opted by this group or economically destroyed if they do not cooperate.

The loan sharks are circling President Trump who is co-opted. You do not walk away from a 950 million dollar debt with these people.
That is why Trump is loading the bankers in his cabinet along with the muscle namely the generals with combat experience.

When the depression is triggered the armies of the world will get their marching orders for domination.

Do not believe it can happen in the United States: The Bonus Army Date: July 28, 1932 Location: Washington D.C., United States.
At 4:45 p.m., commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, supported by six battle tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton, formed in Pennsylvania Avenue while thousands of civil service employees left work to line the street and watch.
They killed two and injured hundreds of peaceful protesters along with policeman.

General Douglas MacArthur , Maj. George S. Patton should have been charged with capital murder.

But both got a buy from the same group since they would be needed in the coming World War II dust up to control the industrial world.

Great Britain along with the United States was the only ones left standing after 1945.

Ask yourselves who fueled the German, Italian, French, Japanese economies and who still owns them?

In closing you are being warned “Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.” Job 38:3

Second Thoughts on James Burnham
by George Orwell (1946)

Excerpt:

What Burnham is mainly concerned to show is that a democratic society has never existed and, so far as we can see, never will exist. Society is of its nature oligarchical, and the power of the oligarchy always rests upon force and fraud. Burnham does not deny that “good” motives may operate in private life, but he maintains that politics consists of the struggle for power, and nothing else. All historical changes finally boil down to the replacement of one ruling class by another. All talk about democracy, liberty, equality, fraternity, all revolutionary movements, all visions of Utopia, or “the classless society”, or “the Kingdom of Heaven on earth”, are humbug (not necessarily conscious humbug) covering the ambitions of some new class which is elbowing its way into power. The English Puritans, the Jacobins, the Bolsheviks, were in each case simply power seekers using the hopes of the masses in order to win a privileged position for themselves. Power can sometimes be won or maintained without violence, but never without fraud, because it is necessary to make use of the masses, and the masses would not co-operate if they knew that they were simply serving the purposes of a minority. In each great revolutionary struggle the masses are led on by vague dreams of human brotherhood, and then, when the new ruling class is well established in power, they are thrust back into servitude. This is practically the whole of political history, as Burnham sees it.

-----

Of course, Burnham was an elitist who believed in the rule of an oligarchy as a substitute for his former Trotskyite belief in the revolutionary mission of proletariat, but I believe his description above is mostly correct.

Economic Collapse Blame

"..,.,this would be followed by an economic crisis, probably triggered early in his first term."

Brandon why do you think this will be early into Trumps first term?
Surely the earlier it is the more justification Trump & his supporters will have to blame it on Obama instead of Trump; which thereby defeats the Elites primary goal of wanting to place ALL BLAME on the liberty "populist nationalist" movement?

No, I'm afraid not. As I will outline in my next article, the elites and the mainstream media have already established the meme that Obama left the economy in "far better shape" than when he entered office. They claim Trump is inheriting an economy in recovery. Any reversal in recovery will be blamed on Trump by the majority of the left and the majority of the world. The globalists will claim that his mere PRESENCE in the White House was enough to undo the repairs made since 2008. The masses will not care what Trumps supporters will have to say on the matter. They will be too busy starving and looking for someone to blame. Human psychology is fickle; and possession is 9/10ths of the law in most people's minds.

QE or Bailin. Or both
written by Jon L , January 01, 2017

Wayne, i've heard Peter Schiff and many others and figure the banks and government have tried all kinds of things and just keep re-namming some of the same stuff over again in different packages or forms.
One things for sure the control every aspect of the markets, but they still can't control everything – as they are human and will most likely miss something soon. The whole aspect of keeping people dumbed down, is not to educate them and to make it look harder than it really is.
Certain documentaries like " The big short " have helped educate some about bubbles & greed without regulation or morals. But when everything is stacked in the elites favor, gold- silver, interest rates, all statistics, Currency's, bonds, and any form of derivatives; who knows how long they can keep it up.
They have murdered bankers in a number of high places and very knowledgeable individuals – of course the media says they have died from suicide.

Earlier, the more dependent, the more to blame
written by NH Watcher , January 01, 2017

It does appear more and more likely that a crash of the economy must happen early in a Trump administration, rather than later. Remember, 9-11 happened only eight months after Bush was inaugurated, and then we got the Patriot Act and the DHS thrust upon us as a fait accompli. Even earlier, the assassination attempt on Reagan happened only two months into his Presidency. And many conservatives are relishing comparing Trump to Reagan.

Obama went rogue on the Elite, so the Elite definitely have the memory of that sting in mind. Remember the Keystone Pipeline? They can't allow Trump too much time, and then gamble with the possibility of his going rogue too.

As I commented on Brandon's earlier article last month, the more dependent people are on government for their daily livelihoods, the more quick they will be to blame ... and come January 20th, Trump will be the entire U.S. government in most people's minds. The 24/7 media will also demand a quick, knee-jerk response to any crisis. When people accept dependency rather than partnering with their fellow man, they most willingly become robots, and will do as they are told.

Blaming is a vicious part of human psychology. To accept ... and to forgive ... are fundamentally harder acts. In Scripture, Job had to ultimately confront the fallacy of blame; unless we are omnipotent and omnipresent, we never have the complete picture to make the judgment which only God is able to make.

And there is always a "rush" to blame, and in that "rush," do we often act inappropriately. May we all now have the patience to see through any immediate fear and confusion, thereby bringing about a better answer to any upcoming crisis.

re Fed Fund
written by Rabb , January 01, 2017

Your prior article indicates that you do not understand the Fed's overnight lending.

Companies are buying back stock using earnings (because there is insufficient general demand to rationalize investing in people and capital equipment), and buy borrowing funds at rates that are suppressed by central bank policies.

But they don't borrow at the Fed's overnight rate/window.

Trump Chump?
written by Rabb , January 01, 2017

Why would Trump permit himself to be used by those that want to blame him for the reset?

I do believe that there'll be a reset at some point, but I don't know when it will happen. It may be that they'll let his infrastructure-build run for awhile at relatively low interest rates ...letting public optimism build while the market enjoys a euphoria phase where ownership of stocks is transferred from Goldman el al, to the rest of us. Afterall, when has the stock market topped with so much cash on the sidelines and with the public so disengaged?

Yellen has already signaled that the Fed will no longer need to be as loose ...based specifically on Trump's stimulative infrastructure spending plans. So let him have a good year, or two, or three, transfer stock ownership at even more inflated prices, and crash it in time for the 2020 election cycle ...if they are actually planning and not simply reacting to short-term events.

No, I'm afraid that it is you that does not understand how overnight lending really works. You should probably educate yourself further by looking into the audit of the Fed's TARP program (the only audit of a Fed program in decades). In the audit, over $16 Trillion (much of it in overnight loans) was allocated to numerous corporations. Are you really so gullible as to believe that this lending stopped after TARP?

http://www.sanders.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/GAO Fed Investigation.pdf

Most stock buybacks are funded through BORROWING, not through "earnings". Company earnings are nearly non-existent when accounting for existing debts and toxic derivatives. Without Fed funds, these companies would have no ability whatsoever to purchase back their own stocks.

@Raab

I've already explained this here in the comments and in numerous articles on Trump and the coming crash. You need to go back and read the articles I have previously published on this issue before commenting.

Trump is OWNED. He will do what he is told. Beyond that, it is not Trump that is the primary target for blame, it will be CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENTS that follow him. It will be conservative principles and sovereignty that are targeted as the culprit for the crisis, not Trump. Trump is just a foil for the plans of the elites. He is a necessary catalyst.

Yellen has conveniently signaled that Trump's potential policies are somehow to blame for the Fed suddenly needing to raise rates. When in reality, the Fed could have raised rates any time before the election after December, 2015. Please, do not spread Fed propaganda here. I already covered and debunked this nonsense in my last article:

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3091-federal-reserve-initiates-end-game-as-trump-heads-to-white-house

And, as stated earlier, the globalists will claim that it was the mere THREAT of Trump's policies that caused the crash. They don't even need to allow him time to implement those policies. In fact, I believe Trump will implement some of them during the onset of the crisis (while blaming the crisis), and the Fed will implement its rate hikes while killing stock buybacks (and blaming Trumps policies). Do you see how that works?

2 cents part 2
written by Seen2013 , January 01, 2017

The biggest issue of disagreement that I have with Brandon's assessment is; the Globalists are largely not going to be able to revive 1870-around 1960 policies in the US without burying the Liberty Movement:

Between 1870-90, the KKK led the redefining of militia to governmental controlled is 'well regulated militia' utilizing 'feeble-minded formerly formal for mental illness/defect' to deny access to firearms and entry into the newly redefined militia.
In 1906, California expanded feeble-minded to genetic defect (poverty, minorities, and etc) as the catalyst to population control even Neo-Malthusians as Robert Engelman assesses the 'liberty inclusive method of through the proper education women will pursue self-interest and collectively control population was exposed as a failure in the population boom due to the financial crisis of 2008.
These policies weren't reigned in by being ruled unconstitutional around the 1960 led by the civil rights movement.

My money is on Trump will use the powers of government to target Liberty Movement under espionage and declaration of stateless aka sovereign citizen first legal precedent in Colorado. And, Trump and Putin butts heads leading to world war complete with a nuclear exchange guaranteeing the need for population control, Sustainable Development to mitigate environmental destruction, and etc become outright facts as a result of World War and Nuclear War in which the undeniable answer to even the most stern skeptics is Agenda 21 through public-private mergers.

The cheapest methods of nuclear disarmament and ending poverty is using the nuclear weapons and targeting the poor. Rewrite the history as a great compromise, and you go down in history as a great hero of humanity.

1). I forget the Globalist who stated it off hand, but he stated 'by peaceful means or by conquest'. If you following the Harbinger Concept practiced by the Occult to the rhetoric during the election cycle, the Harbinger Concept breaks the election down especially by Trump's actions thus far to:
By Peaceful means=Clinton wins.
By Conquest=Trump wins.
If you look at the desired solutions:
-Plutocratic Government of Absolute Authority aka Progressive Big Government.
-Cashless Society (monopoly of world currency)
-Mandatory Population Control including social control.
-Global Governance.

2). Lets look even more at the Harbinger Concept:
-Extensive Bunker Systems
-Seed Vaults (for the Globalist Elites)
-GMO Mighty handy that GMOs are designed to survive where other plants can't like areas possessing 'radiation'.
-Transhumanism-Singularity Movement (Luciferian Initiation?) that just happens to enable immortality while being shielded by EMP built like a Faraday Cage and protecting what organic tissue (stem cells come in handy to repair) is guarded from radiation poisoning...

What a coincidence...

"According to these Bible verses there will be a SERIOUS contamination, with multiple people cleansing the land for 7 months, but it doesn't seem to be the result of a deliberate plan."

Through artwork globalists showcase:
-The Perpetual Migrant Worker at the Rockefellers.
-The Reptilian dominance over humanity at the Rothchilds (The reptilian mind is largely symbolic of Divine Right to Rule aka the perverted interpretation of Romans 13 promoted by DHS to the Clergy Response Teams).
-The Erosion of the Bill of Rights at the IRS HQ.
-The destruction of New York City at a Cathedral by either colossal wave or nuclear usage.
-Denver International Airport that among other things includes suitcase warheads, murals depicting a major or world war with nuclear war, and the lack of plant growth leading to children rallying around an obvious GMO plant that also includes weapon's ban, and etc.
-And to keep the this aspect that falls under the 'Harbinger Concept' short, the Georgia Guidestones who summarizes the Earth Federation for world parliament movement's Earth Constitution...

I think the "enemies closer" argument is a bit ridiculous. The elites have shown time and again what they can do while implanted within an administration. Just look at what Col. Mandell House did while working as "adviser" to the Wilson administration - he essentially pushed the U.S. into WWI.

Putin never kicked the Rothschilds out of Russia, this is an old wives tale. He booted a few Russian billionaires that were not part of the elitist program while the IMF enriched (bought off) the rest. Putin openly supports the IMF and the UN. It's time to let the whole "Putin vs globalists" lie rest.

Trump is no different. He has surrounded himself with establishment elites. It is truly delusional to hope that Trump is some kind of master tactician that is somehow secretly working for liberty against the elites while saddled right beside them as they watch his every move. The use of false paradigms is the arena of the globalists, not Trump.

I believe that the "give him some time" meme is being perpetuated by the establishment itself. I think there will be a crisis event early in Trump's first term and that all the people saying "give him some time" will then support him no matter what he does, even if he takes unconstitutional actions. No, Trump needs no more time. His cabinet picks and advisers tell me EVERYTHING I need to know about him.

Evil, as we have recently seen, have to make their "last stand". Evil is just that way. They will have a good run and if the greatness of their evil is anything like the evil we saw in this recent election process - evil will run in a rampage until they run out of steam and end up in the dustbin of history torn asunder underground in their mountainous caverns and rocks. Evil is limited in their exploits.

Next stop...the fiery furnace of hell. Unless they are humbled and sincerely repent of their numerous transgressions. Biblical promises are sure and trustworthy.

“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the Lord Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them.

2 But for you who revere My Name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.

3 Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty." Malachi 4:1-3

Backfire?

Hi Brandon,

Now that is has become clear that Trump has surrounded himself with establishment figures, wouldn't the upcoming crash also be blamed on this same establishment.
The reasoning you used to predict a Trump win was that a crash on Clintons watch would point the blame to the elitist. Now that more or less the same elitist are surrounding Trump, wouldn't it be a similar situation where a crash would redirect the blame to the same group (and also where the blame should be pointing to).

Be interested in your view on this.

I believe I already answered this question. What you seem to have missed is all the arguments on the part of conservatives DEFENDING Trump's cabinet picks, as if Trump is actually in control of these people. You see, the answer to your question is right in front of your face.

Look at how liberty activists defend Trump, when if Clinton had won and filled her cabinet with the same elites, they would be enraged. The fact that conservatives will continue to defend Trump regardless of his actions because they are so desperate for a hero figure places those same conservatives in the foolish position of being scapegoats when a final crisis occurs.

Again, under Trump, the elites will receive NO BLAME whatsoever, even though they permeate Trump's cabinet. The blame will go to Trump as a figurehead, and by extension, all the duped conservatives that continue to support him despite his lies.

Trump / Paul / JFK
written by JohnQ22 , January 16, 2017

One thing to consider when looking at the Ron Paul campaign vs. the Trump campaign is that during the 2016 Republican Primaries there was a narrative (pushed forward by Clinton and the MSM) that Clinton would easily defeat Trump. It was a liberal narrative that held Trump as the best possible republican candidate to face off against Clinton, since Clinton (with her "experience and character") was such a better pick than a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic Trump and his "deplorables."

Ron Paul's campaign was simply and effectively ignored by the MSM. So the approach used by the opposing forces in the Ron Paul campaign was significantly different than the Trump campaign. This does not preclude your analysis from being correct. However, I don't think Ron Paul is a good comparision.

As silly as this may sound, JFK may be a better comparison. He made it into office (probably by saying whatever he needed to say to TPTB to get there), altered his prescribed actions (apparently) to serve other interests (against the will of MIC/CIA/Banker powers) and was ultimately "liquidated". Now, I think that it is unlikely that Trump is another JFK, but it is possible that he is following his own version of JFK's playbook. If that is the case, then more time to assess Trump is needed. Certainly by Trump's actions we will know his true colors
