    The battle between Trump and Fed Chairman Jerome Powell over Fed policy is a farce and always has been. Consider the facts – Trump ran his election campaign partly by taking a stance against central bank stimulus measures and ultra low rates. He explicitly attacked the notion that the US economy and stock markets were strong under Barack Obama, warning that the markets were in a bubble created by the Fed’s easing measures. Then, as soon as he entered the White House Trump flipped narratives and claimed the economy and the markets were strong, and that they were strong because of him.
    Trump also said a little over a year ago that he wanted a strong US dollar, now he has reversed completely and says he wants a weaker dollar. In an indirect manner Trump has recently called for a monetary race to the bottom in competition with other nations. This display of bewildering policy gymnastics could be taken one of two ways – one, Trump is bipolar, or two, Trump is following the script that is given to him by the money elite day-to-day just like every president before him for at least the past hundred years. But what is the point of this absurd show?
    As I have examined in depth in past articles, I believe the evidence shows that Trump is a pied piper for conservatives, and his attacks on the Fed are nothing more than world wrestling federation-style dramatics for the benefit of his base supporters. Does anyone else think it’s rather strange that a supposedly fiscally conservative president is fighting for monetary easing while the Federal Reserve (the KING of easy money for the past decade) is fighting for liquidity tightening? This only makes sense when you look at Trump’s background…
    Trump’s companies have faced at least four separate bankruptcy threats since the 1990s, yet he has been bailed out on more than one occasion by surprise investors. The most prominent of these investors was the Rothschild family through their agent Wilber Ross. Trump was saved from his vast debts tied to his Taj Mahal casino complex and three other major properties by the Rothschilds in the 1990s, and some of these properties would go on to face bankruptcy again in 2009. The Taj Mahal would later sell for 4 cents on the dollar, yet Trump would always come out financially unscathed from these events.
    Trump’s reputation and perhaps his entire current fortune is owed to the Rothschilds. This is probably the reason why, after becoming president, Trump loaded his cabinet with multiple globalists and banking elites, including Wilber Ross as his Commerce Secretary.

    Trump no longer argues that these indicators are rigged, even though unemployment stats do not include over 96 million working age Americans that are unemployed and are not counted on the benefits rolls. Even though GDP is calculated to include most government spending as if it is the same a wealth creation rather than wealth confiscation. Even though the stock market is entirely manipulated by unprecedented corporate stock buybacks, as well as levitated by Chinese stimulus measures flooding the global liquidity pool and investor hope that the Fed is about to reintroduce QE “at any moment”.



    Trump repeatedly attacking Federal Reserve Chairman Powell is very strange considering Trump appointed Powell !!

    Did you see my last post on my related topic ?

    Ironically....

    This well-known Japanese author, Kiyosaki,
    also co-authored another book with Trump !


    Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men - One Message - 2006

    by Donald J. Trump and Robert T. Kiyosaki


    Trump also turned 70 in 2016... like the baby boomers mentioned in Kiyosaki's book.


    'Rich Dad' author says the 2016 market collapse he foresaw in 2002 is coming

    *

    " In 2002, Kiyosaki wrote that the stock market would crash in 2016 as the first wave of baby boomers began to hit 70 1/2 in 2016 and started taking required-by-law distributions from traditional individual retirement accounts.

    He still believes that: "Demography is destiny."

    According to U.S. Census Bureau data, more than 76 million individuals were born between 1946 and 1964; researchers at the Population Reference Bureau determined in 2014 that 65 million of them were still living. After immigrants are added in, according to that 2014 report, the number of living U.S. baby boomers was back above 76 million.

    "Interest income or cash flow on savings is virtually nonexistent, and capital-gains plays in the stock market are thwarted because stock prices are at record highs," he said.

    Whatever burden millions of boomers might put on the market, he said, the situation is being made worse by events overseas, where one big country is wielding the monkey wrench.

    " China has been in a bubble for 20-something years," said Kiyosaki. " It has propped up the U.S. economy falsely. When [China] stops importing, the world crashes with them. "

    August 2018 Trump issued an Executive Order to research raising the RMD age !

    May 2019 the House overwhelmingly and bipartisanly passed a bill [SECURE Retirement Act] that does raise the RMD age a couple of years !

    But this month, stupid Senator Ted Cruz put a hold on that bill which may kill it in the Senate !!


    Also ironic is Trump's current trade war with China !!

    US Preparing To Withdraw Thousands Of Troops From Afghanistan As Part Of Proposed Taliban Deal


    Via Fox News:
    The Pentagon is preparing to withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan as part of a proposed peace deal with the Taliban, U.S. officials told Fox News Thursday.
    One official warned the withdrawal would be subject to the completion of any agreement. So far, no such deal has been finalized.
    The Trump administration has undertaken eight rounds of negotiations with the Taliban, which controlled Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001, led by envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, the Afghan-born former U.S. ambassador to Kabul. Khalilzad has hinted that a peace agreement could be reached in the next round of talks, scheduled to be held in Qatar later this week.
    “In Doha, if the Taliban do their part, we will do ours, and conclude the agreement we have been working on,” he tweeted Wednesday, adding that he was, “Wrapping up my most productive visit to #Afghanistan since I took this job as Special Rep.”

    Socialism coupled with Islam...in Minnesota
    Educate others to grow our base of informed citizens, it's tyranny. Spread the Gospel.

    Prepare wisely individually. An army runs on it's stomach.

    Network with those who prepare wisely and take advantage of the strength in numbers and the economy of scale.

    Then, when the curtains come down and the truth is evident to an informed citizenry, we unite and fight the new world order.
