Trump Bump, No Recession, Rate Cuts Coming – Gerald Celente

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Top trends researcher Gerald Celente said last year the global economy was headed for a big crash—not anymore. Celente explains, “Here’s what changed our forecast. . . . Jerome Powell, the Fed Chair, said on January 4th 2019, the Fed was going to be “patient” in raising interest rates. . . . The numbers came out for the jobs report, and they created over 300,000 jobs. Wages for all of 2018 have gone up the strongest in 10 years. That would have been a reason to raise interest rates based on Fed policy. Instead, Powell said, ‘We’re going to be patient.’ We sent out a Trend Alert, and here’s what we said, ‘Trump bump and no recession.”  We are also saying not only are they not going to raise rates, but they are going to be lowering interest rates. That is the Trump card that the other countries don’t have. . . . They can’t lower them in Europe. They have negative interest rates. . . . Everybody is in a box except America.”

Celente says cutting interest rates “will send gold higher, but the dollar may go up as well.”

So, what does that mean for Trump’s re-election chances in 2020? Celente says, “You are hearing it first right here. . . . We are writing right now in The Trends Journal at this point, it all depends on the swing states. Trump lost the popular vote, but he got the swing states and won in the Electoral College. The key issues in the swing states are the border, the economy and trade. There is going to be positive trade news coming out because there is not going to be and there never was a trade war with China. So, we believe the ‘Trump Card’ will be the winner in the 2020 Presidential election reality show. It will be the swing state popularity that Trump will still have.”

What are Celente’s biggest fears for an ugly surprise for Donald Trump?  Celente says, “The wild card is higher oil prices. That can destroy the world. . . . I am most afraid of war. That’s our biggest fear, and the rhetoric against Iran is heating up. If there is a war in the Middle East, kiss the markets and the economies goodbye. Everything right now is very wobbly, and it’s being held up by this cheap money. So, oil and war are our greatest fears at this time.”

    Hi Greg,
    When Gerald read from the Wall Street Journal it struck me that the reporter ( a term I use in deference) felt the need to clarify that the ruling party is the “populist” ruling party. Populist? Really? If I believe that my nations gold belongs to the people I’m a …populist? I wonder what that reporter would call me if I believe my nation’s gold belongs to the …banks!

    • Rob

      The gold belongs to the IMF and the BIS according to the “globalist” mindset:

      http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3716-globalists-are-bringing-their-one-world-currency-plans-out-into-the-open

      Great interview Greg! Have you ever considered having Brandon Smith on? He asks this question in his article about the “globalists” that I couldn’t resist answering:

      “Who is going to snuff the globalists out then?”

      First we must understand the other name the Father has for the “globalists” and all those who chose to worship them by entering into their system to buy and sell:

      Revelation 13:14-17 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived. (15) And it was given unto him to give breath to it, even to the image of the breast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (16) And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; (17) and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name.

      The time in which SDR’s role as a bridge from “king dollar” to blockchain will be 3.5 years at which time that passage of scripture will be fully implemented. Then from that point until “mystery Babylon” is nuked off the face of the earth will be 3.5 more years:

      Revelation 18:8-10 Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord God who judged her. (9) And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived wantonly with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they look upon the smoke of her burning, (10) standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

      Then comes one year of global wrath so intense the “globalists” will truly want the mountains and rocks to fall on them to hide them from the face of HIM that sits on the only throne that will matter:

      Revelation 6:15-17 And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the chief captains, and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; (16) and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: (17) for the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?

      This will all take place within the next decade because Jesus’ 2000th year from his resurrection is 2030 when Father will give Him the earth to conquer:

      Revelation 19:11-16 And I saw the heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon called Faithful and True; and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. (12) And his eyes are a flame of fire, and upon his head are many diadems; and he hath a name written which no one knoweth but he himself. (13) And he is arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood: and his name is called The Word of God. (14) And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. (15) And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty. (16) And he hath on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

      Our job is to prepare to stand in the congregation of the Most High God with Jesus:

        Comment little long Rob, But love your spirit.
        Greg

        • Rob

          Sorry Greg! I am just so excited about our Father’s soon drawing of His sons out of spiritual Egypt for history(His~story) will repeat spiritually:

          Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

          Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. (10) Is there a thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been long ago, in the ages which were before us.

      • kevin

        Another date setting Christian. Every generation has had people like you. Even the Christians in the first century though that Christ was going to come in their lifetime. They were wrong just like you will probably be.

        • iwitness02

          Kevin,
          ROB has an understanding and a belief and hope that means so much to him, that he is compelled to share it. Part of every generation, has had similar hopes, and like you say, they have all been wrong on the timing. But the love of truth and the hope for fulfillment of prophecy is precious to many. And for those who really believe, they want to share this precious information. Freely. Rob cares, and so do I. But we have to be strong in faith to keep hope alive.
          Anyhow, I thought I would speak up, because I think I understand the motivation. ROB cares about all of us.

        • paul ...

          kevin … So far every generation who thought Christ was going to take “the good people” and transport (rapture) them to the Moon to protected them in a large deep underground Moon bunker … in order to save them from the tribulation that is surely coming to Earth … were wrong … but … consider the fact that all “the bad people” (the banksters, neocons, pedophiles, etc., etc.) who know they will not be saved are now building their own underground bunkers on Earth … this seems to suggest the timing for this “rapture event” to occur in our lifetime is increasingly likely … couple that with the chem-trail spraying (being used to hide from our view the giant planet now between the Earth and Venus that blocks out the Sun when it passes in front of it) … and the fact that equipment has been put in orbit to shine an intense light on this alien planet to make it appear as though the Sun was not eclipsed at all … this seems to give hope to us “date setting Christians” that “rapture time” is near … the only thing I can’t figure out is why God the Father told us to look for signs in the heavens … and then our government goes and tries to hide those signs? … who is our government working for?? … why go against God and for what reason??? … is it because the Demon rats don’t want us Christians to have any excuse “to get right with God” by marking the immoral degenerate warmongering pedophile neocon banksters with orange jump suits (so God won’t have any trouble identifying them)???? … perhaps they want God to accidentally rapture them to the Moon along with us “good people”!!! … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCMwd8VcZeY

            False hope based on fantasy does more to harm the followers of God than it does to help them.
            There is plenty of hope in the Word of God without being a John Smith or L Ron Hubbard.

        • Rob

          Hi Kevin!

          You may not be aware but I am not alone in my thesis that the next decade is going to bring some very significant change:

          https://usawatchdog.com/dane-wigington-we-face-abrupt-climate-collapse/

          You might also like the comment I left after Greg’s excellent interview of Dane:

          Dane is 100% correct and his timing of the destruction of the environment of earth completely agrees with your latest Martin Armstrong interview of economic destruction of the earth all occurring during the next decade!!!

          The powers that be know this and are advertising the exponential destruction of human life by 2025 on one of their military websites:

          http://www.deagel.com/country/forecast.aspx

          Every Christian needs to study the book of Exodus because all of us must experience the “exodus” of “spiritual Egypt” as God allows men to destroy the earth before He then destroys them:

          Revelation 11:18 And the nations were wroth, and thy wrath came, and the time of the dead to be judged, and the time to give their reward to thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, the small and the great; and to destroy them that destroy the earth.

          Jesus gave us very clear signs in the Olivet discourse found in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 of what will take place during the tribulation

          Luke 21:10-11 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; (11) and there shall be great earthquakes, and in divers places famines and pestilences; and there shall be terrors and great signs from heaven.

          If Dane is saying pestilence and famine are coming by 2026 then that means the Christians are heading in to lots of tribulation before all those things:

          Luke 21:12-13 But before all these things, they shall lay their hands on you, and shall persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for my name’s sake. (13) It shall turn out unto you for a testimony.

          Christians better get ready for the tribulation because it is for the church:

          https://sumofthyword.com/2016/10/04/the-rapture-of-the-church-is-after-the-tribulation/

        • Galaxy 500

          Yes indeed. I can not find anything in the Word of God that points to what he is claiming.
          The time in which SDR’s role as a bridge from “king dollar” to blockchain will be 3.5 years at which time that passage of scripture will be fully implemented. Then from that point until “mystery Babylon” is nuked off the face of the earth will be 3.5 more years:
          Reminds me of JW’s claiming the end of the world was coming in the mid 1970s or the other snake oil peddlers preaching the end of times.
          Is the world going to end? The Word of God says it will. When asked when it will end, Jesus, the Only Begotten SON of the One True GOD, said only the father knows.
          So when I see people claiming to have knowledge that Jesus doesn’t have thru some “special” insight, I have to conclude that they are lost or being lead astray.

          • Rob

            Hi Galaxy!

            Jesus said “no man knoweth” during His earthly ministry:

            Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only.

            The tense of the verb “knoweth” is present not future! This spoke of Jesus earthly days of ministry before His ascension to the right hand of the Father. It was after His ascension that the Father gave Jesus the Revelation to give to John on the island of Patmos around 96 AD:

            Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto his servants, even the things which must shortly come to pass: and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John;

    There is a bigger problem then war and oil (let Putin can take care of those issues) … the very big problem we American people need to solve is how to stop all the Deep State spying against American citizens in violation of the Constitution (now that the Deep State’s treasonous spying against Trump has finally been proven) … what we should begin to do for ourselves is “un-plug” our dishwarshers, TV’s and computers when not in use … take the batteries out of our cell phones when not in use … and disconnect our car batteries when not in use (as a first step) … later … we can begin to destroy (or modify) these devices … and boycott the manufactures who implant spy equipment into their products (who have become traitors to the Constitution) to put these commies out of business!!

    • paul ...

      They take away our right to privacy … and now they think that they can take away our right to free speech and the telling of the truth … the Main Stream Media “think they are protected” because they provide “fake news” and “don’t tell the truth” … but soon … the Deep State won’t be able to distinguishing between The New York Times and WikiLeaks!!

        Based on the end user agreement, the Tech Lords are not taking away our rights, worse, the simple minded ate willingly giving away rights and information that our parents would not have dreamed of allowing.
        And for what? Facebook? Instagram?
        I don’t do that kind of stuff. I might start a Twitter account not to comment but to make sure I get President Trumps tweets.

      Paul…HUGE bus. venture for some techies..to de-bug appliances and such!
      Also…if people have their loans on houses paid off….might look at downsizing parts of houses and extra unused buildings and cut their real estate taxes…lol
      Currently starting this weekend were some at our local pub discussing selling old guns to dealers and hock shops…and donating the money to ‘go fund me’ accounts for non-redeemable one way bus, train, airplane tickets for migrants to easy up the plugged highways full pedrestrians… Free packs, a sleeping bag, and one way ticket to Hawaii …they can work for a return ticket once they get there? And make sure their are buses headed to Mountain View and Atherton NOT Oakland ! How about 10 or 20 k to Schumer …they can congregate outside FOX NEWS and wave to their relatives at home so they know they got there safe!
      Don’t forget Gibson and Jupiter Island…am sure there are lots of housekeeper , landscape and pool cleaing jobs in those areas since there is hardly any ag work due to snow, flooding they need to go to the big democrat run cities… Like in Vietnam, and many Asian, Philipines, and India areas where the field workers all moving to the cities due to failed croplands. Maybe give them cheap cars once there and they can join UBER or LYFT? Infact–just donate them a driver license and car right there at the border and let them drive themselves to the cities of their choice where all the clients are? S.F. , Seattle, NY, Chicago, L.A., Vegas, Baltimore – God bless America ! Give us a problem and we find a way to solve it !

    The Black Swan for the economy, as Celente suggested, will be the dramatic increase in oil prices just after the 2020 election, barring a war with Iran happening sooner. I firmly believe the neocons are firmly in control despite Trump’s stated desire for retrenchment and the globalist agenda is still on track for a totalitarian outcome.

    As Peter Schiff has pointed out, we haven’t had a positive GDP number since 2000; thus we have been in recession for 20 years, however artfully it has been papered over. Greg: you need to bring him on again. His economic analysis along with the work done by John Williams, is the only truth available.

    Yea!
    Happy days are here again! That may be what Gerald thinks, but that’s not what the globalist are saying.
    https://www.economist.com/leaders/2019/04/13/the-independence-of-central-banks-is-under-threat-from-politics

    In fact they’re blaming President Trump for the coming global Bank collapse. Is anyone surprised? Not me. We all knew in 2016 it would be either war with Hilary, or economic collapse with Donald. To his credit he has stalled it off with stock buybacks and media diversion with the get Trump campaign perpetuated by the MSM and the Mueller investigation. But there is an old Hindu saying. Painted cakes do not satisfy hunger! Or in hillbilly terms, a turd rolled in powdered sugar doesn’t make a jelly donut.

    I’ve said it before a thousand times. The Chinese are NOT buying gold because they have a love affair with shiney rocks . They are selling U.S. treasuries to backstop their own currency with gold.
    Yes, the treasury may start QE again to keep interest rates low( like it never stopped? ) but who’s going to buy the worthless bonds?

      • Energy

        It will be a duel money system with a Eastern gold backed currency and your dollar debt western system…..the world is being divided up into regions….America will keep it’s dollar system going until the rest begin to reject the USD….Zimbabwe economy coming to the USA.

    • Freebrezer

      Jerry – I agree with your sentiment, but the big question you ask “who’s going to buy the worthless bonds” … the other side of coin is where is the big, big money going to be parked? Say you are big tech with hundreds and hundreds of billion … Where is a “safe” place to park these sums, for how long, and in addition, will it be protected by the rule of law if a black swan decides to come on in for a visit? EU and Japan with negative interest rates, this makes little sense unless you are ready to bet on currency trades … Risky; Russia – yea! Venezuela, Argentina, and others like them …. hmmmm? Swiss – just not big enough to handle the capital flows; China – they have not been tested with a big down turn and the world has no idea how the rule of law will prevail. Look at Alibaba – If The communist leaders decide they want your money, do they get to take it? … I am not sure how that will work out in the court of communism? Thus if the USA notes and bills are worthless, where is the safe place to be? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-15/why-kyle-bass-thinks-china-is-just-a-paper-tiger

        I would say the US has lost its mind … we can get N. Korea to give up their nuclear weapons … and all we have to do in return is take some sanctions off (so they can buy food and heating oil for their people) which is no skin off our nose … why this does not sound like a fair deal to Trump is beyond me … but of course his neocons want a “better deal” (a war)!!

        • paul ...

          Trump and Kim have met twice (in Hanoi in February and Singapore in June) supposedly building goodwill … but failing to agree on a deal where we simply have to lift sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile programs … probably means the Deep State needs a nuclear threat aimed at the Hawiian Islands … because they can’t make the American people believe Russia is a threat (nor the Europeans)!!

          • paul ...

            What a “better deal” means to the Deep State neocons … is to force their enemy to build nuclear weapons … so they can justifiably have another war!!

            • paul ...

              If Trump does not control his neocons and “they get their war” … oil prices will rise … the stock market will crash … and Trump won’t be elected in 2020 … exactly what the Deep State wants … a Demon-ratic victory will put a Deep State commie in office … so for Trump to win in 2020 … he must peacefully resolve both the Korean and Iranian problems … along with bringing the 18 year old war in Afghanistan to an end (along with destroying their poppy fields) and neutralizing the poppy fields in Mexico also (by shutting the US/Mexican border if necessary and not allowing Mexico to trade with the US unless they destroy their Drug Cartels “within one year” but not later then the 2020 election)!!!

                Great points!
                And add in the flooding crisis in the US farm belt. Not good for food prices and very disruptive to the entire regional economy.
                Stagflation?
                Too much debt. Too much geo-political instability. Too little societal cohesion. Too many black swans.

    The Democrats put their whole immediate political future behind the
    Russian hoax. In doing so, they have probably handed Trump another term. Dumbest political move ever. They could have spent two years, instead, developing coherent policy ideas and platforms.

    • William Stanley

      Claude,
      The Democrats (and RINOs) are boxed in and desperate. Desperate people do desperate things. The situation couldn’t be more serious.

  20. brvalentine

    Yes Greg, they are well aware that the US economy (as well as global economy) is already in Recession. Remember, the public (masses) are Always last to know. They take you to the Dance, but when the music stops and the lights are turned out, you’re left with no ride home. The ‘Real’ numbers lag 9-12 months, thus, while you’re already in Recession those numbers are not revealed to confirm such conditions until later down the road.

    Trump knows this. Again, remember as the Candidate, he spoke of and Campaigned on, “The Big Fat Ugly Bubble (Stock Market); Real Unemployment 23% etc…”.

    Now, they’re begging for Rate Cuts; QE etc…Why? Because while a strong economy is portrayed, beneath the surface resides tremendous economic/financial turbulence, globally.

    As the saying goes, “If you’re going to tell a Lie, make sure it’s big enough and repeat it over and over until it’s believed.”

    Nonetheless, it would have been refreshing had Trump come in and Addressed the ‘Causes’ of the problems (economic) and attempt to solve them instead of taking Ownership of the Big Fat Ugly Bubble etc… and just layering more paper on paper (Debt).

    While such would have caused some short-term pain and it would have been unpleasant to say the least, at the very least, a new foundation could have been poured from which to build upon a strong; vibrant and honest economy. Production/Savings instead of Financialization.

    Lastly, Trump was in no way the ‘Cause’ of the disaster that he inherited from his predecessors (Obama; Bush etc..) however, he does appear to be traveling down the very same road in which, no substantial changes materialize and the masses remain cannon fodder, while the greatest transfer of wealth continues to the 1% unabated.

    In essence, Trump is a dream for the top 1-5% at the expense of many, unfortunately.

    • William Stanley

      br,
      Thanks; your comments are always thought provoking.
      One thought that has been provoked is whether we tend to focus too much on the economy as the driving force. Sure, money makes the world go around. And it is usually the mother’s milk of politics.
      But IF AG Barr really goes after the deep state, including Obama and Hillary, the economy (like war) will just become politics by other means. Yup, a pretty big IF.

    Ding got dinged … $3.8 Million “for a technologically obsolete car”?? … what does he pay for his toothpicks $100 dollars each??? … but Ding can’t show off his wealth to us … with Trump’s and AOC’s QE to infinity all us Americans will soon be paying $100 Million for our cars and $1,000 dollars for a toothpick … if Ding had any “common cents” … instead of wasting all his “worthless fiat paper” money on narcissistic glitter that will be “obsolete in a few years” … he could be getting rid his fiat paper on something that will remain up to date and “useful for centuries” (gold and silver)!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-14/chinese-tycoons-son-buys-38-million-bugatti-vancouver-dads-credit-card-complains

  22. paul ...

    So the Fed is going to stop QT, lower rates and do QE … forgive student loans, give a Universal Income to everyone, get the housing market moving up and Wall Street moving up and because the rest of the world can’t easily lower rates that are now negative they have to do QE also (China’s $40 trillion in debt is double ours) therefore making the dollar stronger in relative terms to other paper currencies (but not to hard currency like gold) … below is a revealing question and answer exchange between a patriot and the “commie” Fed …
    Patriot: You say that you (the Fed) have the power to increase the money supply. Is that right?
    Fed: Yes.
    Patriot: And you have indeed increased the money supply. Is that right?
    Fed: Yes.
    Patriot: And the money that you create was generated out of thin air. It wasn’t there before, but it’s there now. Is that right?
    Fed (Getting nervous): Yes.
    Patriot: And you say that creating this money out of thin air is beneficial to the economy. Is that right?
    Fed (Now nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof): Yes.
    Patriot: Then why do you prosecute counterfeiters?
    (The audience, after a few seconds’ delay,: Yeah, why DO you prosecute counterfeiters?)
    Fed: This meeting is closed.
    (What the Fed should have said is: Counter-feit-ers are criminal organizations that are in direct competition with our criminal organization … and that is why we are moving to get rid of cash … so as to make it more difficult for other criminal organizations to muzzle in on “our thing”)!!

  23. Mike R

    Small business which has been a huge benefactor of this past 10 year ‘boom’, is actually the most likely to be the big wild card, that takes this market down.

    Why ?
    Because most of them right now, have never been in more debt, and more leveraged in the history of record keeping.

    I think Trump knows this, or at least suspects it using his business instincts, and he’s pushing the hardest on the Fed, to keep these small businesses from getting killed by any higher rates than they are now. Small businesses are the first to feel any downturn, the first to feel price increases in oil/gas, and if these guys start going under due to higher rates, trump tariffs, then all bets are off for Trump winning 2020.

    Small business health, or rather massive debt, is the ‘elephant in the room’, nobody is talking about.

    The whole complex is out of control. Said before Meuller report. Who in their right mind would want to rule if honesty was an issue. How many thugs and indecent people will America tolerate as it dissolves relentlessly. False flags blatant, politics an absolute disgrace, news that even would not make sense to a complete idiot, how can a whole country be so stupid. There is no election, a pretense of who gets the most paid coverage to end up with two choices of which both will be simple puppets. How with such deep roots in all areas of collusion can there be any way out. They say the fish rots from the head down, another says you get all the justice you can afford. What a complete disgraceful mess. Absolute corruption wins. What a dream it would be if the actual 9/11
    investigation had an honest to god selection of people to open the doors to all the corruption from 60 years past to provide some belief that there is a semblance of justice.

      • paul ...

        MP … Right now oil is hardly a dying commodity as there’s a lot of new cars coming out in the developing world every year that are gas powered whereas less then 1 percent are currently electric … so oil may have a last hurrah before the electric cars arrive … but when they do … there will be some very tough times for the oil industry for a very long time … but don’t feel to comfortable about “the slow pace of electric car production” … because what is going to speed up oil’s demise is the conversion of all the trillions of old piston driven cars to run on “disassociated” water (along with the heavy machinery in the auto factories used to build the cars) !!

      IF Trump does not address the voter fraud across the country like what happened in Michigan ( Detroit & surrounding metro area ) during the midterms there will be no 2020 for Trump.

      • William Stanley

        Da Yooper,
        I agree. We’ve gone beyond “It’s the economy, Stupid.” The rubber has now met the road: It’s ALL politics now (and war is just politics by other means). What’s left of the economy will have to get sorted out later.

      • Mike R

        I’m not convinced Trump will actually run. Something tells me he has an ‘exit plan.’

        A deal was cut with deep state:
        + Trump doesn’t get prosecuted or a ‘bad report’ via Mueller investigation
        + In return, he agrees not to go after Hillary and gang (Comey, McCabe, etc.) for treason and multiple other high crimes, and the massive corruption that occurred during his election, and afterwards.
        + Trump must leave office by the 2020 election, and not run again.
        + Dems can allow anyone to run, except Hillary Clinton
        + The GOP gets ‘taken off the table’ for any clear challenger, as Trump agrees to make it look like he is going to run, until its too late, for any serious GOP contender. Hence we see weaklings like what we are beginning to see now.
        IPSO FACTO, some DEM will be in office of Prez., after next election is held.

        Call me crazy, but Trump is (for whatever reason, none of us can see or will be allowed to know) a one termer. In a way, Trump ‘wins’, as he’ll get some deals done in ‘name only’ such as NK deal, China Trade deal, some form of a ‘wall’ (but nothing meaningful), and he gets to ‘live’. The dems will stop the ‘harassment’ , but media will continue the ‘onslaught’ to make it look like everyone still dislikes Trump.

        The biggest loser in all of this will be the American people, and then the GOP. Trump was never part of the GOP. The GOP never really supported anything Trump. So Trump gets his way, gets his ticket out of the ‘hell hole’ known as DC, GOP loses to the Dems, and America continues down the sink hole.

        • paul ...

          Mike … If Trump can gain control over his neocons (and make sure they don’t get their war) … Trump can be elected once again in 2020 … if he can’t get control … then I would agree with you!!

        • William Stanley

          Trump isn’t stupid. Therefore, he knows that he cannot expect counter-party performance on any “deal.” He has crossed the Rubicon and there is no going back.

  30. Barn Cat

    According to John Williams at shadowstats.com inflation is 9% and unemployment is 22%. So we’ve been in a recession for years. If you take 3% growth, add back the 2% fake inflation figure then subtract the 9% actual inflation you get -4% growth. And that’s not even looking at the fake GDP adjustments for the rental value of your primary residence. So almost everyone has wages that aren’t keeping up with inflation.

    • paul ...

      BC … The average American family man (who is not on welfare) makes about $50,000 dollars per year … at a Shadowstats inflation rate of 9% … the average American family man is losing $4500 dollars per year … this means for Trump to maintain the same living standard for the American people he must tell the banksters to increase the credit card limit for the average American by $4500 dollars every year (the way the government gets to raise the National Debt limit every year) … in this way Trump can keep the economy moving … but at the same time he must get the banksters to lower everyone’s credit card interest rates so they can afford to maintain the higher debt … it’s not a good solution … but it will help people to keep up with inflation … a better solution … is for Trump to raise the CPI to 9% (so people won’t have to borrow to keep up with inflation)!!

        paul …,
        RE: “a better solution … is for Trump to raise the CPI to 9% (so people won’t have to borrow to keep up with inflation)”

  32. "Concerned"

    Hi Greg, I would appreciate it if you would NOT put this on the comment section with my name. I am currently living in another country. The local currency is pegged to the dollar—In theory, when the dollar goes up, the exchange rate is better. In the past 9 months, whenever the dollar goes up (as it is now) the exchange rate has not gotten better. This only means that the dollar “going up” is all fake. Other countries recognize the dollar “going up” in value is not real.

    Greg, as long as we have slave masters stamped on our coins, there will be injustice in our nation. Washington who is on the quarter had hundreds of slaves and beat them regularly for enjoyment.

      Gina, Actually Jefferson was very pro race with both black and indian blood in this family… Please post your ‘proof’ Washington owned ‘hundreds’ and beat them for ‘enjoymet’ ? I doubt you have one verification of those claims ! Seems your neglect to mention the ‘black slave owners’ who were the first…and that most of the original African slave traders were North African Muslims about the time they migrated across and up into Portugal and Spain and took them to the America’s for mining in Vera Cruz and South America about the time the ”’CORTEZ”’ (any relation ot AOC? invaded there and took out Montezuma. So that is how the ”’Latinos”’ = Portugese and Spainard treated the Mayans and Aztec and Mexican and South American Indians as from north as Utah …plundering and looking for the ‘Lost city of Gold’? So who are the real ‘slave traders’ ? Kamala Harris family in Jamaica? And of course there were some plantation and slave owners like McCain’s…but let us just drop the ‘selective’ BS… it historically was the Democrat party in the south that were the racist slave owners well beyond those you attempt to blame !

  37. Galaxy 500

    Greg,
    Off topic but needs to be said. France is reaping the benefits of moslem immigration. When these vile creatures reach critical mass, they start their reign of terror against God’s people, the Jews and Christians.
    They burn churches. They defile the holy water at Catholic churches. Moslems rape, rob and murder because their god Allah, also known as Satan, commands them to destroy all things that are Good.

    Here is my take on things
    There is an old parable about a woman finding a pretty snake dying in the snow. The snake convinced the woman to warm him with her bosom. When the snake revived, he bit the woman and both died.
    The woman cried out, “Why did you bite me? I was doing you a kindness.”
    The snake replied, “You knew I was a snake when you picked me up.”

    We know the moslems hate America, Christians, Jews and even God. We know these moslems are snakes, why are we surprised when they bite? And why are we letting them into our country? What will these vile creatures have to do before we do what is the only way to deal with them, put them to the sword?
