I've been saying and thinking exactly the same thing about Trumpy that this report points out. I've thought all along that he's being used, either knowingly or unwittingly.

I've stated previously that the fix was in for him to be elected when it's obvious there were so many others much more qualified. Rand Paul would have been the better choice. He is more aligned with conservatism, and constitutionalism, idealisms, many on this forum profess to embrace.

Times of great political and social crisis can almost always be linked back to a common root cause — false paradigms. There are many people out there who have no clue what this phrase means, just as they have no clue what the phrase "controlled opposition" means. Some of these people are new activists to the liberty movement who recently joined because of the fervor of the Trump presidential campaign. They think the world of sovereignty and nationalism revolves around Trump because, frankly, they have been duped by a false paradigm themselves.
False paradigms are a base tactic of what is known as "4th Generation Warfare." The purpose of 4th Gen warfare is described in the document 'From Psyop To Mindwar'. A document circulated within the DoD by the 7th Psychological Operations Group and written by now former General Paul Vallely (spelled "Valley" in the document) and now former Lt. Colonel Michael Aquino (a self-professed Satanist). I recommend it as a means to understand how globalists tend to think, and to come to terms with the fact that these people are not held in check by empathy or morality or reason.

As far as 4th Gen warfare is concerned, Mindwar describes a method of psychological manipulation and propaganda used by governments and militaries as a means to turn a target population against itself. The goal is to win a war against a group of people by causing them to destroy each other so that the government does not have to combat them directly and get its hands dirty.

False paradigms are a premier tool for pursuing this outcome. They are achieved by dividing a population through false leadership, fake and sometimes real threats, as well as manufactured crisis events. Globalist institutions and the political puppets they control use false paradigms as a means to distract the public away from their criminal endeavors. While we are focused on the political Left, or the political Right, or the Russians, or the Iranians or the Chinese, they are exploiting our fear and doubt to gain more centralization and more power.

For globalists, the ultimate prize is, of course, open global economic management (rather than covert management), a one world currency and cashless society, as well global government. They want a veritable worldwide feudal plantation state — and they want the masses to embrace it willingly, or perhaps even beg for it. To obtain this price, they will need a considerable global economic disaster, and the U.S. economy and the dollar would have to be undermined, for Americans would not consent to global governance as long as our society remains relatively affluent and comfortable.

But how is this being accomplished by globalists...? And what does the trade war have to do with their plans?

120/80 Miracle Ends High Blood Pressure (Won Nobel Prize)

If Big Pharma can't patent it, your doctor won't prescribe it. But you need to treat the root cause of high blood pressure, not just its symptoms.

This FREE REPORT tells you how.
Global banking elites and the controlled demolition of the U.S.
I have been writing extensively on the controlled demolition of the U.S. economy for some time now. In January 2018 I predicted in my article 'Party While You Can — Central Bank Ready To Pop The Everything Bubble' that Jerome Powell and the Federal Reserve would pursue policy tightening and would continue until the bubble in fundamentals, corporate debt, consumer debt, housing, retail, stock markets, etc. collapsed. So far, I have been proven correct; the fundamentals are plunging, and only stock markets remain. In the second quarter of 2019 the Fed is still cutting assets exponentially from its balance sheet and still refuses to pull interest rates back from their neutral rate of inflation.

The Fed has used the tactic of addictive stimulus measures and artificially low interest rates to create massive financial bubbles in the past. And, they almost always use tightening policies in times of economic weakness to deliberately pop those bubbles. For example, this is exactly what happened at the onset of the Great Depression. As former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke openly admitted in 2002 in an address in honor of Milton Friedman:

In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn.

Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again.

And yet, it is happening again today. As the economy nosedives, banking institutions buy up more hard assets and consolidate more power, and each time global economic management is suggested as a possible solution to the very crisis they created.

My question has never been "Will there be a crash?" A crash of the U.S. is mathematically inevitable, it is happening now in accelerated fashion, and has been progressing in various ways since 2008. Instead my question has always been "How will the globalists get away with it?"

In my article 'Trump Trade Wars A Perfect Smokescreen For A Market Crash', published in March 2018, I outlined exactly how they plan to get away with it. In that article I examined the strange number of similarities in policy and politics between Donald Trump and Herbert Hoover, including the use of large-scale tariffs right before the collapse of the U.S. financial system. While it was the Federal Reserve's interest rate increases into weakness that exacerbated and prolonged the Great Depression for many years, it was Herbert Hoover's policies (and sometimes the gold standard) that was blamed for the crash.

In other words, Donald Trump is following almost the exact same path as Herbert Hoover, and Trump's trade war with China is being used by the banking elites as cover for their sabotage of the U.S. economy. In the end, it will be Trump and all of his "populist" followers that will get the blame for the destabilization of our financial structure. The central bankers have a perfect scapegoat.

Trump and the false Left/Right paradigm
But how could the banking elites and globalists possibly predict Trump's behavior in order to take advantage of it? Well, if you look at Trump's background as well as the number of elites he has placed within his own cabinet, the reality if the situation becomes clear: Trump is a puppet, and always has been.

In my article 'Trump Is A Pied Piper For The New World Order' I outlined Trump's history with the banking elites, including his relationship with Rothschild banking agent Wilber Ross, who bailed Trump out of his debts and saved him from the effects of bankruptcy in the 1900s. Trump's biggest campaign promise was to "drain the swamp" in Washington D.C. of the financial elitists and globalists that Hillary Clinton was so closely tied to. But when he entered the White House, he made Wilber Ross his Secretary of Commerce, hired on Goldman Sachs goons like Steven Mnuchin and Gary Cohn, and he has brought warmongering psychopathic think tank members like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo into his cabinet.

The globalists don't have to predict Trump's behavior, they dictate Trump's behavior. Thus, the false left/right paradigm reigns supreme once again; the same paradigm many Trump followers thought they were escaping.

Current Trump cheerleaders completely ignore this fact, however. I have not seen a single one of them confront the issue of Trump's cabinet or his associations with the Rothschilds. They either ignore it outright, or they claim Trump is "keeping his enemies close" or "using them to free America." This is insanity, but it showcases the power that false paradigms have. Conservatives were so afraid of a Clinton presidency that they jumped on the Trump bandwagon, a globalist puppet and controlled opposition, and they refuse to admit they have been conned.

Trump has gone on to attach his presidency so closely to the performance of the economy and primarily stock markets that any crash now will undoubtedly be blamed on him. This is strange behavior if you consider his statements during his campaign, including his assertion that the Fed was deliberately keeping interest rates low to protect Obama, and that the stock market was a giant fraudulent bubble. Today, Trump is demanding that interest rate be lowered, and that stimulus be renewed, and, he has been Tweeting incessantly about how the economy under his watch is the greatest ever.

This might seem delusional, if you do not understand that Trump is controlled opposition and that he is playing the scripted role of a bumbling villain. The U.S. economy is not the greatest it has ever been, in fact, it is the worst it has been since the crash of 2008, as I evidenced in detail in my article 'The Crash In US Economic Fundamentals Is Accelerating.'

China and the false East/West paradigm
The other side of the control mechanism for a crash is on the other side of the world — China. It is not only Trump that has to act a certain way in order to cover for the crash of the Everything Bubble, China must also play its role. The false East/West paradigm is perhaps the most pervasive of all false paradigms, for even many in the liberty movement think that governments in China or Russia are opposed to the elites in the U.S. and Europe. This is simply not true.

China in particular has a longtime relationship with Western globalists. In fact, modern China was essentially built by them.

The Rockefeller family has and the Rockefeller Foundation have been influencing Chinese social and political developments since the late 1800s. This started as seemingly innocuous, with the foundation initiating social and health related programs in rural areas, but as noted by historians with access to the Rockefeller Archives, the Rockefellers were not seeking philanthropic charity, but wide reaching influence in Chinese society and politics. I highly recommend reading Frank Ninkovich's study of the Rockefeller's dominance in China for the past century in the Journal Of American History for more information.

China's central bank is currently linked to the Bank For international Settlements, which is often referred to as the "central bank of central banks" and as admitted in an article for Harpers in 1983, the BIS essentially writes policy for all member banks — this means the Chinese central bank AND the Federal Reserve are both controlled by the globalists at the BIS.

China also now works closely with the International Monetary Fund — the Yuan has been inducted into the SDR basket system, and China has called on multiple occasions for the SDR basket to replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve structure. The IMF is openly discussing the introduction of a cashless digital currency system based on blockchain technology, which is I believe will be the likely replacement for ALL currencies when the time comes.

The trade war smokescreen
For many years I have warned that the next World War would be an economic world war between the East and West, and that this war would be engineered by globalists as a mass distraction while they introduced their one world economic system. The crux of that economic war would be the eventual dumping of U.S. Treasurys by foreign central banks as well as the dollar as the world reserve currency.

What many pro-trade war people don't seem to realize is that the dollar's world reserve status was part of the original deal with China. China gained a trade surplus and access to U.S. markets; the U.S. gained a cheap labor pool and our currency was accepted by the Chinese as the foundation of international trade. But this dynamic no longer serves globalist interests in the new system they hope to create.

This might be why U.S. Treasury auctions are seeing dismal results, and why the Chinese are now willing to threaten the dumping of U.S. T-bonds.

China is the No. 1 exporter/importer in the world. They now set the standard for international trade, not the U.S. If China follows through on threats to dump U.S. Treasurys, or if they dump the dollar as the world reserve, then most if not all of their trading partners will do the same. The consequences would be devastating for the U.S. economy, which has a minimal manufacturing base and is utterly reliant on the international acceptance of the dollar to keep prices low and to prop up what's left of our economy.

While proponents of the trade war keep insisting that manufacturing will come back to the U.S., this still has not materialized. Why would corporations spend all the money to rebuild factories in the U.S. when they can simply stay in Asia and use the existing factories and cheap labor? There is no incentive for them to come back. If tariffs go higher, they can easily raise prices on consumers to support their bottom line.

The U.S. is being set up for a spectacular fall. Those that claim China would never make such a move don't understand the Chinese economy. The U.S. market is only 18 percent of Chinese exports, and U.S. consumption has been declining. The vast majority of China's gross domestic product comes from domestic consumption. The Chinese will take a hit to their economy, certainly, but nowhere near the hit the U.S. economy will take if they cut off the dollar as the primary trade mechanism.

The trade war only makes sense if you look at it from the globalist perspective. China will get hurt, the U.S. will suffer an economic disaster it will never recover from, and only the globalists benefit. The U.S. will "lose" the trade war, Trump and conservatives will be blamed for the collapse, China will already be pre-positioned as the next economic engine for the world, and the IMF and BIS will introduce their one world currency system as the solution to the problem they created. Whether or not they succeed in this plan will greatly depend on whether or not enough people set aside their biases and accept that the whole thing was a farce from the very beginning.

To truth and knowledge,

Brandon Smith

Perhaps, seth, you'll offer a lengthy rebuttal highlighting the points you feel are pure bullshit, with reasoned counterpoints.

Reasoned counterpoints? How about straight reality minus all that eloquent propaganda?

The article you posted sounds like Paul Krugman on steroids, even before Trump was inaugurated.

The false paradigm to which you refer is not a Trump Administration product, the divisiveness has been a tactic of the Democratic Party for years, brought to an art form by Barack Obama.

The Democrats have badly worn out the word "racist" already, applying it to Christians, pro-lifers, advocates of low taxes or welfare reform, people who enjoy their second amendment rights, believe in a secure border or in any other way, shape or form do not agree 100% with every last Democrat agenda.

The Democrats have worked hard to drive wedges between men and women, ethnicities, sexual orientations and of course between white males and everybody else, with the willful complicity of the mainstream media.

The author of the article does exactly what the Democrats do, very Marxian, in accusing the Republicans of doing what they themselves do.

We actually account for 19.2% of China's exports, about 2/3 of the total exports recieved from China by other Asian countries and a little more than double what the Chinese export to Europe and South America.

Trump is anything but a globalist tool; the very idea, even with what amounts to a circumstantial "interpretation" of his reasons for appointing certain people to his staff or his cabinet, is totally belied by his trade and diplomatic policies, as well as his accomplishments in the economic sector, and his so-called "tariff wars" seem to be working just fine:

The last time the "talks" with Xi broke off, Trump's highly criticized tariffs actually damaged the Chinese economy enough that not only did Xi come back to the table with large offerings of importation of American agricultural products, but Chinese investment in U.S. real estate and corporate shares has declined significantly because Xi Jinping has ordered Chinese firms to begin reinvesting their assets domestically to make up for shortfalls incurred by Trump's tariffs. Trump also forced the Chinese to sell their majority ownership in the Port of Long Beach to an American company, further distancing them from too much proprietary interest in the U.S.

Where Iran is concerned, I will not comment because I am not yet satisfied that there isn't more to the president's strategy there than meets the eye.

Sure, the author of your posted article can point to some of Trump's cabinet members and staff as warhawks and globalists, but the president has already demonstrated that while he listens to input, in the end he does what he believes is the right thing to do, and so far he's batting 1000.

Summing up: The economy, and not "just the stock market" is doing much better than it was before he took office, despite the lies of the Democrats with their false graphs, charts, interpretations and partisan political innuendo, our foreign policy is mostly working, where it's not it is because the Democrats and the MSM, through their domestic rhetoric, have been sending a perpetual message to other countries that Trump will be gone any day and his policies are therefore temporary.

As far as the deficit is concerned, those numbers skyrocketed under President Stimulus Obama, and while Trump has added to it, his economic policies, once into their full effect, will begin whittling those numbers down.

The attempt to connect this president with globalism is at best reaching, as are the forecasts -- or I should say the reiteration of the incessant forecasts of impending recession and eventual doom for America -- have already become as tired as the Democrats' endless employment of the term "racist."

The only globalists of note among more politically "prominent" Americans are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and their retinues.

-- "Cheers."

Reasoned counterpoints? How about straight reality... (show quote)


Well, Seth, I appreciate your optimism. Me? I'm not so inclined. Even though the economy seems to be roaring, it's not the answer to the massive debt being carried by a large segment of folks. While I'm no longer in the workforce, still, I sense that the jobs being offered, and I agree the jobs are out there, will do little to alleviate the debt burden carried by many.

Most jobs haven't kept up with inflation for near forty years, and the jobs being offered now probably don't either. I've heard of wage increases of three percent, I don't think that's a lot to get excited about.

There will still be the need for two incomes, if married, just to break even. Graduating college kids with student loan debt up to their eyeballs unable to find jobs equating to their level of education, moving back home with their parents.

I realize there have always been chicken littles in the world, and perhaps, I'm one. Still, the country is no longer what it once was. The manufacturing base has been hollowed out to a point that we are left with a mostly service-based economy.

Yeah, some steel plants have started back up, and a few manufacturing companies are said to be thinking of returning, but the reality is the nation, sadly, is no longer what it was. I know that many doubt the globalist threat, however, I feel it's much further along than realized.

Looking at what the country has become, I'm reminded of that classic story of the old south, "Gone With the Wind"

Being on the cusp of 64, I have to agree with most of that, though I do see the beginnings -- if not an overnight miracle -- of a return to the right direction.

I see the Trump presidency as being the first step, the increase in productivity thus far only the beginning, along with the overall surge in confidence that has the markets in an upward trend, the decreasing unemployment numbers, our "evening up" on foreign trade and the trend towards putting America first, rather than our supporting the rest of the world by allowing our treasury to be used on a one way basis, as a global ATM.

I also see the sudden growth of unfilled jobs as the primary reason compensation is increasing... This trend will continue and as it does, salaries and hourly wages will continue to rise.

The damage of many decades won't be undone overnight, there won't be any instant gratification.

Too many people prejudged and, no matter what happens, won't acknowledge any of the positive accomplishments engendered by President Trump, but that's politics.

He is demonstrating what a career businessman, rather than a career politician, who approaches the presidency like a business project rather than a partisan political operative, can do and I believe he is doing it well, moreso because he is being fought every step of the way by politically motivated opposition and activist judges.

Many people consider the deficit to be a priority over the well being of individual Americans, Trump understands that as a leader, he needs to prioritize the people, get everyone back to work and fix whatever he can that's broken where it can obstruct economic progress. The deficit can be paid down once the maximum number of Americans are paying into the tax system, our infrastructure is up to par and our defense/national security organs are fully equipped and ready to protect us from all enemies.

Unfortunately, today's Democratic Party and the mainstream media are all about politics, along with much of the Democrats' voting base, and none have even been willing to give Trump an iota of a chance. They make little of or flat out ignore his accomplishments, perpetuate the lie that his tax reforms were strictly "for the rich" and fight tooth and nail to prevent him from his every objective with an eye not towards bettering the lot of America and Americans, but to causing his presidency to fail at any cost.

Here we have a POTUS who, unlike his predecessors going back decades, is attempting to deal with longtime issues by addressing them head-on rather than kicking the proverbial can down the road and who is working to get America a fair shake on the international scene (for a change) and the Democrats are more concerned with trying to bring him down.

As an American, I see no excuse for this, none whatsoever, and as someone who loves my country and despite being mostly retired and out of the marketplace, I'd like to go into full retirement knowing that America isn't going the way of Camelot because of some people who place partisan politics above patriotism.
