The last few days have certainly been historic for American politics! Contrary to what the Mainstream Media, Democrat controlled White House, Senate, and other powerful groups are saying – this election is a unique, unprecedented, history making, game changing, paradigm shifting, superbowl of superbowls. As we explain in our best selling book Splitting Pennies, and as eloquently described today by Peter Thiel – the main reason for problems in America is simple; hyperinflation. If you haven’t yet watched, this groundbreaking public speech supporting a renegade non-Elite candidate by an Elite himself (although, controversial) check it out here on Zero Hedge or here on Bloomberg, and in summary:
AMERICA’S OVERPRICED HEALTH CARE SYSTEM MIGHT HELP SUBSIDIZE THE REST OF THE WORLD, BUT THAT DOES NOT HELP AMERICANS WHO CANNOT AFFORD IT AND THEY HAVE STARTED TO NOTICE. OUR YOUNGEST CITIZENS MAY NOT HAVE MEDICAL BILLS, BUT THEIR COLLEGE TUITION KEEPS ON INCREASING FASTER THAN THE RATE OF INFLATION, ADDING MORE EVERY YEAR TO OUR $1.3 TRILLION MOUNTAIN OF STUDENT DEBT. AMERICA HAS BECOME THE ONLY COUNTRY WHERE STUDENTS TAKE ON LOANS THEY CAN NEVER ESCAPE, NOT EVEN BY DECLARING BANKRUPTCY. STUCK IN THIS BROKEN SYSTEM, MILLENNIALS ARE THE FIRST GENERATION THAT EXPECT THEIR OWN LIVES TO BE WORSE THAN THE LIVES OF THEIR PARENTS. WHILE AMERICAN FAMILY EXPENSES HAVE BEEN INCREASING RELENTLESSLY, THEIR INCOMES HAVE BEEN STAGNANT. IN REAL DOLLARS, IMMEDIATE HOUSEHOLD MAKES LESS MONEY TODAY THAT MADE 17 YEARS AGO. NEARLY HALF OF AMERICANS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH $400 IF THEY NEEDED IT FOR AN EMERGENCY. YET, WHILE HOUSEHOLDS STRUGGLED TO KEEP UP WITH THE CHALLENGES OF EVERYDAY LIFE, THE GOVERNMENT IS WASTING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON TAXPAYER MONEY ON FARAWAY WARS. RIGHT NOW, WE’RE FIGHTING FIVE OF THEM. IN IRAQ, SYRIA, LIBYA, AND SOMALIA.
Studies have been done – the real cause of social revolution, the ‘let them eat cake’ syndrome, is not anything other than simple hyperinflation. When the cost of staple foods, and basic life, are more than a certain percentage of average income, people riot. One interesting example are the Onion riots of India – a staple in Indian cuisine. This was the cause of the American Revolution, the British wanted to tax Americans into poverty. The financial controls were so severe, the idea of “America” was more about having our own currency than our own country. But a country is a currency, and tax is connected to the ‘functional currency’ which again, is attached to the collecting organization (government) and the amount of guns they have to collect taxes.
Thiel may be a closet Genius hitting the nail right on the head with this short characterization of the current situation, at possible risk to his own business and peers. Bravo! To paraphrase the point, the ‘system’ – which means the government and the financial system, which have become like one, have become disfunctional. The fact that Clinton is a criminal is really a side issue, there are thousands of corrupt criminal politicians keeping the dead system afloat for a few more years, taking bribes and looking the other way. As proven by QE, the Fed can’t print our way out of this one.
So what is the connection between TRUMP and RUSSIA?
The breakdown in the system, the reason TRUMP has so much support, is because he is an anti-establishment candidate. For better or worse, he’s just NOT a politician. He is a vote against the last 30 years of Elite dominated foreign policy, monetary policy, wars, social degradation, and general decline.
Trump represents the ‘truther’ movement. For 30 or arguably 60 years, the Elite have used a tool of complex social engineering, call it programming, call it brainwashing, call it propoganda, call it what you will. Through simple TV advertising, movies, music, events like the Shell Air & Sea show, Burning Man, Lollapalooza, Facebook, and other means – the Elite have manipulated the greater masses of the population (probably, about 95%) with little ease. Pull a lever here, false flag there – boom. Another puppet in office (Obama). Another bubble created. Another opportunity to fleece the growing upper class of their easy bubble gotten gains. Another opportunity for BIG money to strike it REALLY BIG. This is nothing new, this has gone on for 200 years in the west. Well, the Bolshevik’s tried to stop the Oligarchs, and had the Soviet Union, which was a unique country ruled by party hardliners. Only comparable to the NAZIs and a few other autocratic regimes, the Soviet Union, anyone would agree, was NOT dominated by foreign power, foreign influence, AT ALL. The United States, has been a foreigner free for all. Proponents of the melting-pot model, the multi-ethnic, multi-gender, trans-gender-ethnic-soup model – will say that this is a good thing. Maybe it is philosophically. But practically, when 70% of the CIA is OUTSOURCED it is a security risk. When ISRAELI companies provide secure encrypted recording of police communications and other national sensitive functions, there exists something we like to call CONFLICT OF INTEREST. How nice, their company is even called “NICE.” So, are we also to outsource the software used for nuclear launch codes? I mean how far does it go, when it becomes ridiculous?
The point is that, the system has evolved to be based on corruption, conflict of interest, waste, irrationality – and it cannot last. It’s a big bubble – a multi-epoch super bubble. Does it mean end of the world? Of course not. Does it mean the end for business as usual? Yes, for sure.
To understand the secret connection between Trump and Russia first understand the ‘conspiracy’ that exists between the current donor class, the .01 percent, Illuminati, Soros, Rockefeller, Grace, Rothschilds, Cargill-MacMillan, Kochs, British Royals, Hottingers, .. etc. There are about 10,000 of them. To put it in writing, THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY. New World Order is a wet dream, they have delusions of grandeur. It certainly would be convenient for them. Like George Bush said, his job would be ‘so much easier if he was a dictator.’ You have to understand what ties all these families together. Yes, some of them are friends, they go skiing together, but mostly, they don’t even speak to each other. They have simply something called COMMON INTEREST. Their interest is simple, make interest on their interest in their bank account, maintain the status quo, and ensure their multi-generational survival at the top. They don’t need to meet in dark rooms and plot and plan or send secret messages between each other – it’s known in their conscious minds. They know, for example, what a TRUMP in the White House means for them.
But is TRUMP really an existential threat to the Elite? Certainly not. If you look at the period of medieval to pre-industrial Europe, there was an anti-feudal social movement that led to the Renaissance, Capitalism (call it ‘mercantilism’), and finally the Industrial Revolution. They evolved – but – the Elite still maintained power. Although, not as direct feudal kings, they now allowed the house of commons to ‘decide’ about issues such as how many parking spaces should be in front of Buckingham palace. But they still owned all the land. Slavery became virtual – chains were exchanged for a control of the money supply, financial tactics were used instead of physical tactics. It was a ‘banks not tanks’ method, and it’s still in use today. In fact, if you look back 300 or 500 years, most of the Elite of that time, are still around with their trust funds. But due to imbreeding, laziness, and just an addiction to ‘rich life’ – few of these families do anything substantial. They rely on new blood, like Bill Gates, to bring innovation to the Illuminati. As long as they are not threatened, and allowed to ‘own’ the new player, you can sit at the table.
Trump represents truth, not in that he is an honest person, but in that, he doesn’t use deceit, manipulation, propoganda, and common social programming techniques to gain power. He’s an honest guy, generally. The fact that he’s a womanizing jerk, a real a-hole, is even a testament to his honesty. Voters for Trump, don’t necessarily like Trump like an individual, they like what he represents. And that is what politics is SUPPOSED to be about. He called out that the elections are rigged. Many have known that for YEARS. I can tell you (author speaking) seeing this first hand in 2000 in Palm Beach County, the voting system is completely rigged. Anyway the point is that Trump represents a silent growing majority of ‘truthers’ who simply want and end to the current lies and tricks and foolish deceptions that can easily be disproved with the internet.
What’s different about this election is WIKILEAKS. It was WIKILEAKS that made this election a game changer, not Russia. The Elite used Russia as a poor excuse for ‘truth’ movement, of which WIKILEAKS is a major component. Many people have been part of a growing truth movement since the questionable official explanation of 911. Well, in the year 2001, Wikileaks didn’t exist. This is a good resource for those who aren’t familiar, that you can forward to your friends who aren’t ‘in the know’:
So, why is all this a game changer? Because it’s all out in public. We knew politicians were corrupt, but now we have it in writing, IN THEIR OWN WORDS. Why did Clinton say ‘they’ll send us to the gallows’ because Wikileaks exposed their private communications, their own stupidity and sloth, their unprofessional behavior, and in general a disfunctional system.
1. Trump and Russia are pro-business
The connection between TRUMP and RUSSIA is they have a pro-business COMMON INTEREST. Trump certainly doesn’t speak Russian and 100% for sure there is no communication between camp Trump and the Kremlin, this is tantamount to cold war delusions that Russians were hiding nuclear missiles on the dark side of the moon. People who are pro-Trump are really not ‘pro-Trump’ as much as they are ‘pro-Fact’ – and this is how Russian politics works. Simply put, Putin cleaned house years ago and it’s an ongoing effort, see an example of one of the most recent stings against a local corrupt mayor:
The governor of the Kirov Region has been caught “red-handed” while receiving a bribe of €400,000 ($446,000). According to investigators, he was getting the money from a company associated with the criminal case of anti-corruption activist Aleksey Navalny. The head of the region in Central Russia Nikita Belykh has been detained and a criminal case launched, spokesman of Russia’s Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin announced on Friday. Belykh was caught red-handed while receiving the money in euro currency at a Moscow restaurant, he added, saying that investigators will seek the governor’s arrest.
Russian politics is certainly a lot different, any country must be looked at through it’s own cultural lenses. This is not a sanitization of Putin – he’s built his own $1 Billion dollar palace on the Black Sea and certainly enjoys the benefits of his position. Well, maybe it’s not for ‘him’ it’s for “Russia” but someone needs to use this place, right?
2. The Elite hate Russia and Trump
Read our recent article for a detailed analysis Why the Elite hate Russia. Why the Elite hate Russia
Why do the Elite hate Trump? Simple – 1) they don’t control him explicitly and 2) Trump poses a threat to them, unlike other wanna be Elites who will just do what they say. For example, if elected would Trump enforce various laws that current politicians have blatantly broken? As the commander in chief, Trump wouldn’t be so easy to control, assassinate, or subvert.
3. Trump and Russia are powerful by themselves
Trump is a billionaire. How many times over? Who cares – he lives the life. He has wealth. So he bankrupted himself a few times – it’s a smart business move. There’s even university classes “Strategic Bankruptcy” that means they teach this in school! Clinton, Obama, the Bush Family, they didn’t build their own empires the hard way, they did things for Elite’s and they were rewarded. Trump may have inherited an Empire from his father, but so what – he turned it into an even bigger one. How many trust fund babies do you know that work (most of them, skiing and in and out of rehab, visiting the administrator monthly to get their check).
Russia – has tried hard to rebuild their economy. The fact that they have been villanized, well – it’s offensive. Why? Because they are doing what the Americans suggested to them! They ‘broke down that wall’ as we told them, they are building free markets, a commodity and stock exchange, growing their middle class, and much more. It’s all commendable, and they are following the CIAs playbook that was given to them in 1991. Ask any Russian, even the oligarchs – it’s not easy. They are fighting a huge demographic problem, declining population, drug problems, health issues, and most importantly – a cultural mentality that still thinks that people who make money that we call ‘entrepreneurs’ are ‘criminals’ they called “Speculant” or “Speculators” during the Soviet times. Imagine what leaders like Putin face every day, explaining to a population that has been taught that it’s illegal to ‘profit’ because it’s ‘dishonest’ to go out and invest and start a business. If anyone can understand this what they face, what they have acheived, it is really commendable. They still have a long way to go, but this Soviet mentality has been deep rooted into their culture not only by Soviet propoganda, but Stalin killed millions who weren’t like this. So it’s a LOT deeper than we can even begin to imagine. And here the Elite are using them as a scapegoat. How dare they? They should be ashamed of themselves!
4. Russia and Trump have common enemies
Whether ISIS is a machination of the CIA at this point is irrelevant, radical Islam is a global problem that threatens the very existence of western culture. As long as there’s a guy willing to strap a bomb to his chest and blow himself up on a bus, the West is threatened. It’s only a matter of time before they evolve and crawl out of their caves and start doing real damage. The Elite in the west really isn’t equipped to deal with a REAL threat, as they’ve been dealing with artificial threats that they create for the last 60 years. It’s easy to deal with an enemy like Iraq, when you know all their chemical weapons because you sold them to him.
ISIS went a little too far. They wanted an enemy ‘without borders’ that it would be impossible to disprove a negative (there can be terrorists anywhere) – the problem is, the methodology created by the CIA planners was so convincing, it now is a self-feeding mechanism and radical ISLAM is a fast growing popular movement in the world. The West isn’t likely going to make the Middle East glass anytime soon, especially with our friends “Israel” right in the middle of it – so this is a REAL PROBLEM that the current Elite really cannot solve. Terrorists cannot be killed with tanks and ICBMs or B2 bombers. Because, how do you know who is a Terrorist? How do we not know that right now, there aren’t terrorists applying for jobs in DHS, the FBI, CIA, wherever – the world isn’t flat anymore. The problems created in the last generation cannot be solved by those from the last generation or those who think like this ‘industrial’ model created after WW2.
Probably, speaking as a technologist, the only group that can really solve this problem are scientists or Silicon Valley.
5. Trump and Russia are both in circumstances where they are forced to be practical
Critisize Putin for this and that, Russia has led itself in a great direction – and is probably one of the top 5 optimized nation-states in the world. We don’t need to do studies to see that countries like Switzerland, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, and others are the most efficient and economically optimized countries in the world. They also enjoy the longest human life spans, best health care (on a results basis) and are the most wealthy. We have to in this light add Russia to this list of WELL RUN countries. It is certainly not the most wealthy, poverty in Russia however is less and less – Russia has vast economic problems it faces. However the difference between Russia and Switzerland is that Russia is HUGE. The advantages of Malta, Switzerland, and others is that they are tiny micro-countries. But Russia actually is too – Basically Russia is Moscow, with a big backyard, and St. Petersburg. However you look at it, Russia has been in a situation last 20 years that it really needed to use every dollar in the best possible way, not because they are honest people, or because they like to save money, but for SURVIVAL. The only reason Russia is a functioning super power, is because they make very good use of their resources. As the engineer anecdote goes:
“Did you know NASA invented a pen that can write on the Space Station? It only cost $20 Million in R&D! The Russians, used an old pencil.”
Simply put, Russia didn’t have the opportunity to create QE, spend Trillions on wars, borrow their way into a debt hole, and so on. They needed to make good use of their resources and they do. They are growing.
Trump, call him what you want, he’s in the private sector. Unlike government officials, i.e. Clinton, Bush, whatever- when you are in private business, you are only as good as your last trade. That means, you are always one step away from bankruptcy, from disaster. Uncle Sam doesn’t bail out failed businesses. But if you are in the government, it works the opposite (at least in the US government). If a guy does a bad job, ‘promote him’ so goes the saying. That means, Trump has constantly had to reinvent himself, to overcome the countless failures and exist in business, for his own SURVIVAL. Trump doesn’t have a government fund paying his bills. He depends on his own business to maintain his life. Many in his situation have folded, and are living under a bridge, or worse.
These are all common interests, that make it seem as if there is a ‘conspiracy’ between Russia and Trump. But just like there’s no ‘conspiracy’ between Reid and Rothschilds, they just have common interest. And for a strange time in American politics, that didn’t happen for at least 50 years, there’s a candidate (Trump) that’s in common interest with the majority of voters.
For those who have read our book explaining how the financial system works Splitting Pennies – this is not news – but what Trump has done is magnified all these common interests into support – a vote for Trump is a vote against the Establishment. And I think that Trump doesn’t care about that, because even as a megalomaniac, he does share these common interests with voters, has the same gripes and complaints about the inefficient government and useless wars and horrid regulations stifling business.
