This guy claims that not only Trump but conservative movements are going to be blamed for Trump's presidency to both destroy the legacy of the right and Trump.

Makes sense to me... the current market absolutely makes no sense. The Federal Reserve (Janet Yellen) comes out with a statement of total uncertainty and how does the market react? It goes up.

Makes no sense.

This guy thinks the elite have been engineering a market correction since 2008. Not apocalyptic but worse than the great depression.

I could see this. They know a massive correction is coming and they use it to destroy Trump's legacy and to show us how we should have chosen their choice for candidate.

We should trust them.

Trauma based mind control.

Actually, 2017 would be the best time for the Globalist to do exactly that.

It will be the PERFECT time to crash / depression.

Ah... I've been looking for an angle on why the Pupetteers allowed Trump to win...

Maybe this is it.

I don't think they expected him to win.

I think they even tried to rig a few states like PA. I know people who had their votes switched but it hit the news locally quick and it stopped.

I think the amount of support for Trump was OVERWHELMING and they are doing everything they can to pretend it was actually close.

I think they allowed him to win because militia is too strong and military will not obey to kill veterans. However if you are right, i think even if they pull all of their money off the market, people will not panic and sell but instead buy in more, thats Trump effect for you.

I think Trump is a scapegoat, but not in the same sense that this guy does.

The US is trapped in all sorts of bad deals that are bad for the US AND the globalists that operate it. The USG and the globalist that are supposed to have complete control over it, would lose all credibility if it renaged on certain relationships and responsibilities.

Then comes 'Trump'.

Nobody can blame the establishment for not doing everything they could to make sure their "guy" (read Clinton) won the election. We all saw how desperate the establishment was make sure Clinton won.

The establishment are apparently not in control after January, at least that is how the globalists want their heavily invested China to see it.

China had to see this day coming. They had to have thought to themselves "this is too easy" right? They didn't really think that the US wouldn't dare pull the carpet from under Chinese exporters to save itself did they?

Well, that's want you get for doing business with democracies. The American people have spoken.

Oh and those that think the US wouldn't bitch slap China out of fear of nuclear exchange?... they have been bitch slapping India, Pakistan, NK and Russia for decades and they all have nukes. I think that is just the establishment playing lip service to China.

"We even tried to threaten them, they won't listen, your just going to have to brace yourself."

Trump might actually be a "trump" card.

What is this guy talking about they already had the 2007-8 conservative Bush destruction

I guess George Bush wasn’t enough.

The absolute disaster of George Bush wasn’t enough for the American people they need more destruction

Conservatism has so many times been proven to be nonworking crap that these conservatives now can only accept destruction. Without realizing their the source of the destruction

I would take anything that brands itself "in association with David Icke" with a huge grain of salt.

A market correction is definitely coming though. My advice, for what little it's worth is to invest before the crash. When the crash happens, any money sitting in a savings/checking account is going to be subject to a bail in. Stocks will escape this, and will eventually regain most of their value, provided you don't cash them out early.

How many times have we read about the economy going to crash?

Here is something for everyone to think about that is a fact.

Do you believe that the PTB would allow something this big to ever happened? No.

The fact is, if for some reason the economy did collapse, then the PTB would be gone, finished and that will never happen.

It is money that gives the PTB their power.

What you may see happened in the future, and I hope that does not happen here, is a new transition of digital currency that will eliminate cash altogether.

Some countries are actually doing this now.

Spoken like a true partisan hack.

The real crash was supposed to happen in 2001, which was offset due to war in the Middle East. The crash in '08/'09 was padded down and delayed from massive bailouts and QE market manipulation. Trump has nothing to do with it, all that needs to happen is the Federal Reserve raising the interest rates, that's it.

It's called capitalism for a reason, we take the booms with the busts. Under Bush and Obama, we have seen corporate welfare/bailouts, which is fascism; did you vote for fascist Obama by any chance or should I just use the PR buzzword Liberal?

He didn't propose a total collapse but a massive market correction.

Do you know what happens during bust cycles of boom and bust?

Consolidation and law changes.

And Trump supporters will never see that Trump was just going along with it the whole time. He's hiring bankers and hedge fund managers into his cabinet, the same exact people who control the market.

He promised a massive tax cut for corporations and deregulations with a republican congress. Why wouldn't they be excited about 2017? With all that, and replacing workers with tech and moving to Mexico. It will be a good generation to be a corporate elite and family.

You really think your some kind of astute conservative thinker

Why don’t you move to Kansas Mr. Conservative and put your kids in school there and then come back here to talk crap

Conservative economics of some brand is always the culprit, even Trump knows that

Here some information for a trite sloganeering uninformed person as yourself

Alan Greenspan, apology for his Ain Rand trickle down nonsense that he utilized to destroy the economy. He actually apologized for his stupidity

Clinton and the GOP congresses wonderful CONSERVATIVE idea to abandon Glass Steagall which we all know now was mainly responsible for the 20077-8 Bush crash

Then after and before that the trickle down plot of the conservative movement which btw is the reason for the stagnant wages we've had for 40 years!

We wont go into the conservative trade deals that Bernie so eloquently informed people on even before Trump got his grubby mind on it

What's conservatism?

Here are two examples...national and state

What’s conservativism?

Alan Greenspan's Ain Rand traditional conservative dogma about regulations and free market ideas that he admitted turned out to be atrocious.

WASHINGTON — For years, a Congressional hearing with Alan Greenspan was a marquee event. Lawmakers doted on him as an economic sage. Markets jumped up or down depending on what he said. Politicians in both parties wanted the maestro on their side.

But on Thursday, almost three years after stepping down as chairman of the Federal Reserve, a humbled Mr. Greenspan admitted that he had put too much faith in the self-correcting power of free markets and had failed to anticipate the self-destructive power of wanton mortgage lending.

The Kansas experiment where now schools are closing, roads aren’t built all because a conservative hack governor wanted to cut all kinds of taxes on the rich…another TRICKLE DOWN EXPERIMENT

Kansas’ Experiment in Right-Wing Economics Is Still Failing Miserably

Under the leadership of Brownback and one of the most conservative legislatures in America, Kansas dramatically slashed the tax rates of Kansas’ wealthy and its corporations. According to ideology, the cuts should have jumpstarted Kansas’ economy and led to rapid growth that created jobs and helped the tax cuts pay for themselves. Of course, nothing of the sort happened.

The effect was disastrous, a slow-rolling series of budget shortfalls followed by cuts to essential services like education and roads, which only slowed the economy further. A series of punitive and regressive sin taxes on tobacco and other goods were instituted to make up for the cuts to the tax rates of the wealthy, which of course only further undermined consumer spending

It's fascism on both sides, I know it's difficult for indoctrinated leftists to understand the difference between free market and corporate oligarchy. Good thing democrat Obama bailed out all those too-big-to-fail companies, someone might have mistaken him for a capitalist; same as Bush.

How's that National Socialism working out for the healthcare industry, btw? Affordable yet?

You’re not nearly as astute as you think you are. A lot of slogans hurled around to what you deem are pejorative adjectives towards people.

I know your type brother, a want-a-be- intellectual gunslinger.

Well you’ve ran into one of the webs best!

Fortunately for you, though, and this site, I’ve laid down my guns…

After much intellectual destruction I have wrought all over the place I am now repentant.

Thank God tonight for that God Emperor when you say your prayers tonight

Take some advice if you can please

Your problem is that you’re dogmatic and doctrinaire, basically brainwashed into some dogma you yourself don’t even understand thoroughly…

Understanding means to grasp the nuances of any doctrinal dogma as well understanding the reality of rigidity in adhering to dogma for dogma sake and eschewing facts, empirical reality, and just old common sense, mother wit and logic.

You expected him to hire career politicians? He's been a businessman his whole life.....birds of a feather flock together and if that what it takes to drain the swamp, so be it. That doesn't mean he's a part of some grand conspiracy to crash the damn market though. It just means that he's doing business with people he can relate to. And if the market does crash it probably will effect the working class like me as much as it did in '08........not much.

Somebody told us Wall Street fell
but we were so poor that we couldn't tell

Has it ever dawned on anyone that maybe.......just maybe......he really does want the best for the country? Just because you have been spoon-fed negative news your whole life doesn't mean that everything and everybody is negative. Grow up. Just because you don't know what he's going to do, that doesn't mean he's going to do the worst possible things.

Besides, i have read Brandon Smith's work before........he aint all that.

Nah. That's not the scenario. It's all Trump. He takes office so that he has a good excuse why he has to "dump" all his real estate holdings before the crash. Yah know. Conflict and interests, and such. So, the buyers of his estate portfolio hand over the cash before things go south, thinking that Trump in office will cause boom times to return, and they'll make lots of money off of poor Trump who was forced to sell only because of protocols. Then, Trump banks all that cash for the day when the crash comes, so he can pick up real estate again at bargain prices. You know the saying, "time to buy is when the blood is running in the streets." Then, Trump causes the crash, leaves office, picks up a bunch of real estate for a song, and rides the next wave up. They rich don't get rich by gambling and taking chances, but by manipulation and risk free controls.
