It’s Obvious Who Will Replace Trump After The Controlled Demolition Of The Economy

It’s Obvious Who Will Replace Trump After The Controlled Demolition Of The Economy, by Brandon Smith. Some dark thoughts that cannot easily be dismissed.

For a couple of years I have been examining the strange correlations between the background and policies of Donald Trump and the background and policies of Herbert Hoover; the Republican president that oversaw the great crash of 1929 and the beginning of the Great Depression.

One of Hoover’s first actions as president in response to the fiscal tensions of 1929 was to support increased tax cuts, primarily for corporations (this was then followed in 1932 by extensive tax increases in the midst of the depression). Then, he instituted tariffs through the Smoot-Hawley Act. His hyperfocus on massive infrastructure spending resulted in U.S. debt expansion and did nothing to dig the U.S. out of its unemployment abyss. …

Hoover ended up as a single-term Republican president who paved the way socially for Franklin D. Roosevelt, an thinly disguised communist and perhaps the most destructive president in American history.

Is Trump going to become the new Herbert Hoover?

It was Hoover and his “protectionist” policies that were blamed for the Great Depression (along with the gold standard), yet it was the Federal Reserve which created the entire calamity. The Fed’s policy easing in the 1920s led to the extensive bubble in banking and stock markets, and the Fed’s rate hikes and liquidity tightening in the early 1930’s exacerbated the crash and extended the depression for many years. Former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke even openly admitted that the Fed was responsible for the Great Depression in a speech made in honor of Milton Friedman in 2002. …

Of course, the Fed IS doing it again. For over a year and a half the Fed has been instituting liquidity tightening into economic weakness at the onset of the crash of one of the biggest financial bubbles in the history of the economic world. It is a bubble they created with the intention of deliberately imploding it, and the process has already begun.

As I have noted numerous times, the crash in fundamentals is well underway, with almost every sector of the economy in retreat except the three indicators that the Fed and the government statistically manipulate: GDP, employment, and stock markets.

Trump is not innocent in this scheme, either. After months of rightly criticizing the Fed during his campaign for inflating a fake economy and stock market, Trump pulled a 180 on his supporters after becoming president and has now attached his administration so completely to the Everything Bubble (and stock markets in particular) that it is assured he and his conservative followers will take the blame as it collapses. …

Trump’s similarities to Hoover are being mentioned endlessly the past year in the mainstream and leftist media with a particular focus on the trade war. Trump’s trade conflicts are providing the perfect cover for the banking elites to pull the plug on the economy, while escaping any blame. The narrative is being set up for a crash and the plan is to make populists, nationalists and sovereignty activists the scapegoats.

So, the question is, if Trump is playing the role of a modern day Hoover, and the current crash in fundamentals is set to become another long term depression, then who is the next Franklin D. Roosevelt; the communistic president or political group to push America even further into the socialist fold? …

Whether in 2020, or 2024, I believe Trump and the populist revolt will be replaced with a socialist fervor beyond anything we saw during the Obama Administration. Just as conservatives surprised the world in 2016, I believe the hard left will surprise the world in the next 5 years.

I find it rather suspicious the amount of media attention hard leftist politicians with little experience are receiving in the mainstream media these days. …

It is perhaps very hard to notice right now in the middle of Trump fever, but I see the beginnings, the root or the seed, of a massive narrative change in the elevation of political extremists like Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, also known as “the squad”. Yes, they seem to be universally hated in Washington right now, and the abject failure of AOC’s “Green New Deal” makes it appear as if there is little support for their ideas, but again, look at how much attention these nobodies are accumulating

The new Franklin Roosevelt? Surely not…

I am reminded of the early hints of Barack Obama’s run for president even though he had little political experience compared to his opponents, most of it as a state senator. People running against him during his early career on the Democratic and Republican sides seemed to keep dropping out of the races due to sexual scandals. Then, Obama received overt attention from the mainstream media and even The Daily Show before he ever announced his run for the Oval Office. The build up was obvious for analysts that recognized the signals. Obama had been anointed by the elites.

AOC and “the squad” are being marketed in a very similar manner to Obama; as hopeful, young, vibrant, full of energy and ready to take on the world. The kind of cheesy, heart-clutching Disney movie sales pitch that Democrats and leftists go crazy for. …

It is clear that hard line leftists are dictating the conversation on America’s future governmental path, and that path is one of extreme centralization, globalization, and bureaucratic tyranny in the name of fraudulent environmental panic.

Interestingly, Elizabeth Warren is garnering attention lately with her warnings of coming economic calamity under the Trump Administration. … Suddenly, the Democrats are seriously talking about the potential for a financial crash — which says to me that the crash that is already happening today is about to accelerate even more in the next year. The globalists are setting the stage for the Democrats to say “See, we told you so”, as an election year approaches.

At this point, given her recent statements, I will have to predict that Elizabeth Warren is the intended Democratic candidate for the 2020 election.

It’s possible.
