Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him

Cognitive dissonance is a powerful drug. It makes otherwise-very-intelligent people goofy and incoherent in their thinking and blinds them to certain realities that they should normally see right in front of their noses. I witness it all the time in the field of economics — a key piece of logic, a key fact that certain people absolutely refuse to take into account simply because they have a singular idea of how the world works and they cannot allow that idea to ever come into question. They would rather leap into a mental gymnastics routine worthy of an Olympic gold medal than examine the truth. And if you confront them on it, they’ll accuse YOU of being the one in denial.

This is how we ended up with the credit crisis and market crash of 2008/2009. This is how very few people saw the writing on the wall with Syria and ISIS and the fact that the funding and training of Islamic extremists by Western governments for the purpose of proxy insurgency might not be such a great concept. It is the reason why it took years for the mainstream to acknowledge the advent of the East/West paradigm, the same paradigm that alternative analysts warned about years in advance. This is why most mainstream AND alternative analysts completely discounted a successful Brexit referendum.  And, it is why the vast majority of pundits could not even conceive of a Trump victory in 2016.  I could write a list 20 pages long on all the geopolitical and fiscal developments most people missed because they were clinging to assumptions rather than evidence.

Unfortunately, the liberty movement is also sometimes vulnerable to such assumptions. The most dangerous of which revolve around the rise of President-elect Donald Trump.

I have seen endless theories over the past several months on all the ways in which the global elites would sabotage the Trump campaign. I believe the phrase “they will never allow him to win” was repeated in nearly every discussion on the election. The assumption in this instance was that Trump is “anti-establishment” and, therefore, a threat to the globalists. These are the same globalists that people also claimed would “rig the election,” or initiate a “coup” in the electoral college to stop a Trump presidency.

Of course, this never happened. So, a large percentage of the movement needs to question — why didn’t it happen? How did Trump win within a system we know has been rigged for decades?

You’ll hear hundreds of theories and rationalizations on Trump’s miraculous victory, but a reason you will almost never hear is also the most likely one: Trump won the election because he serves the interests of the establishment. Trump won because he is a fake.

This is not an idea that many liberty activists want to entertain. They were so repulsed by the proposition of Hillary Clinton taking the helm at the White House that they would have invested themselves in almost ANYONE running against her, even if they thought that candidate might be controlled opposition. However, not just anyone was fielded as a candidate; Trump was fielded, and for good reason.  I predicted before the Republican and Democratic primaries that the final election would be between Trump and Clinton in my article Will A Trump Presidency Really Change Anything For The Better?, published in March, and here is a quote on why:

“The other ingenious aspect of the Trump campaign is really who he is running against — Hillary Clinton, a rabidly liberal candidate even more hated than Barack Obama. A candidate with a potentially serious criminal record and a penchant for an outright communistic world view far beyond that of Bernie Sanders. Those of us who have been in the writing field for a long time and have dabbled in fiction know that in order to create a fantastic hero, you must first put even more work into creating a fantastic villain. The hero is nothing without the villain.

The unmitigated horror inherent in the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is like adding jet fuel to the Trump campaign. (And yes, I am assuming according to the results of the primaries so far that the final election will be between Trump and Clinton).”

My point back then as well as now is that without Clinton as the counter-party, Trump would not have garnered the political following he did.  Any other Democratic candidate would not have galvanized conservatives so fervently. As I continued in my pre-primaries article:

“Donald Trump appears to be the perfect antithesis to Hillary Clinton. … the real question is, is Trump a reflection of the frustration and defiance of the conservative population, or, is he a clever ruse by the establishment to co-opt and placate the conservative population before we rebel?”

The staging of the 2016 election might have appeared to some people to be absolute chaos, but to me, it could not have been more perfectly scripted. In later articles covering the election I went on to give Trump a chance.  I stated that I had little doubt that he would win the election and that this would be followed by an economic crisis, probably triggered early in his first term.  Conservative movements would be set up as scapegoats for a crash the globalists had created. However, I believed it (marginally) possible that Trump was not aware of this strategy on the part of the elites. Today, I no longer hold this view.

The first and worst sign that Trump is not anywhere near “anti-establishment” has been his complete reversal of his original “drain the swamp” rhetoric. Trump is not only NOT draining the swamp that is the Washington D.C. and corporate elitist revolving door, he is adding even more creatures of varying ghoulishness.  As Newt Gingrich, who describes himself as an outside adviser to Trump, recently stated:

“I’m told he now just disclaims that…” [Draining the swamp] “He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore…”

There is a good reason why Trump no longer wants to use that particular slogan — his cabinet is now filled with the exact same elitists he used to slam along with the Washington establishment.

Trump first placed former Goldman Sachs partner Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary. Goldman Sachs has a long history of insinuating its alumni into vital positions within government bodies dealing directly with the economy.  Mnuchin is particularly troubling because of his ties to George Soros; Mnuchin used to work directly for George Soros at Soros Fund Management up until 2004.

Then, for those people that thought maybe Mnuchin was just an anomaly, Trump added Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs, as the director of the National Economic Council.

Trump’s chief strategist and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon is also a former Goldman Sachs investment banker.

It is interesting to note that over a quarter of the gains in the delusional Dow Jones spike after Trump’s election was tied to a rise in Goldman Sachs stock value.  Imagine that…

Trump is also now “advised” on economic matters by the likes of JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon. Are we starting to get the picture here?

If that is not enough, then how about the fact that Trump is being closely advised by long time globalist Henry Kissinger (just as Vladimir Putin is advised by Kissinger)?  I’m not sure why so many people are surprised by this arrangement; Trump was meeting with Kissinger months before the election. No matter the administration, there is ALWAYS a high level globalist behind the curtain.  Barack Obama had Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Trump and Putin have Kissinger.

I won’t go into the numerous establishment Republicans that Trump has tapped for his administration, I will save that can of worms for another article, but anyone in the Liberty Movement that is not at least generally suspicious of Trump at this point is probably kidding themselves.  The bottom line is, Trump has already LIED to his political base.  He has surrounded himself with globalists and financial gatekeepers when he originally criticized Clinton for the same behavior.  At this point, as long as he working in close proximity with such parasites there is no way for us to know if he is calling the shots, or if his handlers are making decisions for him.

I have heard it argued that Trump “has no choices” outside of D.C. insiders, which is why his cabinet is loaded with bottom feeders from Goldman Sachs. I find this argument rather naive. I would argue that there are thousands of brilliant professionals and people far more trustworthy outside of the beltway that could populate Trump’s cabinet and “make America great again.”  I would even argue that ANY person with little experience inside the D.C. corruption chamber would be better suited to the job.

It seems to me that there are some activists that just can’t let go of the notion that Trump was the candidate the elites wanted all along.  After all, didn’t the powers-that-be do everything in their power to try and stop him from winning the election?

Well, not really.  The media firestorm surrounding Trump, though highly negative in tone, only boosted Trump’s exposure throughout the election. In fact, Trump received more coverage from outlets like CNN than all the other candidates combined.

This was the exact opposite tactic that the elitist controlled media used against true liberty candidate Ron Paul in 2012. With Paul, the media went out of their way to ignore him; they even refused to show a single Ron Paul campaign sign in a crowd if they could avoid it. This was a concerted systematic effort on the part of left AND right wing media outlets to ensure that no one outside of the internet heard about Ron Paul.

So what happened with Trump? Why did the mainstream media abandon a strategy that was very effective against Ron Paul, and why did they give Trump endless free coverage?

The elites also did not take very stringent measures to disrupt Trump’s candidacy early in the race. The Republican National Convention undertook a campaign of disinformation and rule changes in order to ensure that Ron Paul would have no chance of organizing an upset against establishment choice Mitt Romney. The same exact kind of treachery was used by the DNC in 2016 to sabotage Bernie Sanders arguably a far more popular and effective candidate than Hillary Clinton. The party elites have numerous tools at their disposal to kill a candidate’s chances before he or she ever makes it on the national stage, yet, we are supposed to believe that Trump just slipped through the cracks, or beat them at their own game?  I think not.

The election itself was riddled with email leaks and data dumps showcasing the corruption of the Clinton campaign, and yes, this did help to ensure a Trump win. The accusations of “Russian hacking” is clearly a sideshow, but the question remains, who did feed that information to Wikileaks? Some theorize that “disgruntled employees” within the U.S. intelligence apparatus may have leaked the data. I think they were not disgruntled. I think that most of the leaks were part of the election theater from the very beginning. In light of Trump’s clear goal to entrench banking vampires within his administration, I think that the elites always intended for him to “win” the election.

Of course, for some in the liberty movement this claim is sacrilegious. They don’t want to hear it, they’ll hate me for saying it, and that’s fine.  I started my work in 2006 during the Bush years, and I remember quite well what it was like.  I have little doubt that some people will be accusing me of being a “liberal” before they even finish this article, just as people called me a “Neo-Con” during the Obama administration.  People who held fast to “conspiracy theories” surrounding the election and how Clinton was the “chosen one” will now hypocritically call me a “conspiracy theorist” for pointing out that NO ONE gets into the White House without being vetted by the elites, even Trump.

Working in alternative media means not caring if people like you or dislike you. I’ve been able to make numerous correct predictions because I do not concern myself with the pressures of conforming to group-think. My only hope is that many in the movement realize sooner rather than later that their faith in Trump has been ill invested. The great danger is that the liberty movement, the best last chance for saving this nation, will sit on its collective hands idle, centralizing all their hopes and eggs into the Trump basket, waiting for him to gallop in on his white horse and save us all from oblivion. And when that time comes, I suspect that he will do nothing, and the movement will be neutralized by its own desperate desire for a hero and an idol.

    Why do so many people who claim to be Conservative want to find fault with President Elect Trump. I think that articles like this one are false flags trying to put doubts into real Conservatives minds !! This is an insidious Anti-Trump piece of propaganda. Mr. Trump WILL drain the swamp. He is a real patriot who has put his own money into his election. He is straight forward, honest and a fair man of extraordinary business sense. He has achieved so much over this election cycle despite all the Fake News the dishonest Mainstream Media has thrown at him. He has been severely mocked and called all sorts of foul, bitter names by his many, many enemies. He is 70 years old and he did not have to do what he has done and what he must now do in the future. He is a truly remarkable man who stands for real Americans, not corrupt dishonest enterprises.
    Help him Make America Great Again !!!

    No doubt that candidate DJT ran on draining the swamp; that he would be the one to MAGA. True that he firmly placed Goldman Sachs menschen in high profile positions. But, could it not be the case that in order to navigate in the swamp, it would be a good idea to have swamp guides that know where the bodies are buried and where the schiesse is? I believe that with Kissinger he had to engage him to know where the globalists are coming from. DJT is a smart hombre, I wouldn’t jump out of the Trump Train just yet. It’s too premature and people need to chill. Relax, HRC is history and our first Muslim POTUS will soon be off on his magic carpet way.

    Disqus – PLEASE SHARE MY POST. It has been said that in the latter days, if it were possible, even the “elite” – meaning the elite of God will be deceived. I, too, highly favored Donald Trump over Hillary. I sent out e-mails detailing how, with God’s help through Donald Trump, we can now reverse the left’s agenda in just about everything and hold on to our Constitution and our liberty. I also discussed how the Progressive (left) agenda is Communistic, and how they follow their plan to the “T”. And I pray with all my heart that Trump will be a Cyrus (like in the OT) and free the people; however, the hold that the Illuminati have over all of us throughout the world depicts a master plan so ingenious and evil that it will take the Lord to unravel it. I like to believe that Trump has enough character to try and perhaps be effective in some areas, but like Brandon Smith – these very same thoughts keep warning me as well. Kissinger is extremely wicked and heavy into the top level of the Illuminati – these people have been practicing their wiles for generations and to them its like a game of chess – they always try to stay one move ahead of us. We know that if someone is really set up for elimination or disposal, that they are eliminated unless they are useful. This whole campaign has been one big theater, flip-flopping all over the place. We have all been completely enthralled and few have watched what is happening behind the curtain as we are slowly and systematically being squeezed and manipulated. Hillary and Obama were were puppets until they both screwed up in various areas and outlived their usefulness and so were discarded. So our hopes are now centered on Trump and they know that, so he will be a target for manipulation. I pray that the Lord will strengthen him and guide him to make right choices in our behalf, but we must be watchful ourselves and be outspoken for the right and start demanding that our legislators do what we sent them to Washington D.C. to do as well. If Trump succeeds it will because we have awakened and understand how completely we have been deceived and wickedness has gotten above us. We as citizens MUST demand that our Constitution is followed and not changed by anyone or we will lose all that our Founding Fathers and the Lord wanted for us – to be a free and outspoken citizenry. Our land is a chosen land above all other lands – freedom is our watchword – and we must hold on to it to be happy. Always watch for what is happening behind the curtain to stay on top of things and don’t be so distracted by pettiness and drama.

    wow, I’m amazed that somebody actually is saying in print what I’ve been saying for some while. Yeah, Trump is putting in elite/gobalist puppets such as the Goldman Sachs crowd.
    If you’re surprised, you probably think that Israel is a good country and “our greatest” ally while they’re really a FRAUD country controlled by satanic zionist Rothschild puppets.
    Look up the creation of israel and how the Rothschilds got control of it from the Brits in the Balfour Declaration, a deal where if the Rothschilds could get the US into WWI, they’d be paid back by the Brits by getting Palestine lands. Now 90% of israelis are ashkenazi jews,descended from Japheth (see Genesis 10:3) and NOT SEMITES because true Semites descend from Isaac or Ishmael.
    So is Trump naive or bought? Well, didn’t his daughter marry one of the ashkenazi jews? Did he get to where he is by selling his soul to the Rothschilds, as so many others have and continue to do?
    Yeah, there is likely to have an economic crash under Trump. My main question is whether the plan contains part where it causes (with the problems with israel and russia) WWIII before Jan 20th whereby o’bama declares Martial Law and doesn’t leave the presidency

    • Hey Einstein, do I detect a sure sign of jealousy between you and the wealthy?
      I have read your blogs in the past, and they are not worthy of Kindergarten
      consumption, and I am not the only American whom continually criticizes your
      worthless chatter. Bye way, what is the level of your education and have you
      EVER worn the uniform of at least one of our military services, unless you are
      the chicken that I believe you to be?

      • stevor says:

        I don’t brag about how wealthy we are. As I kid we had almost nothing and I learned to live like a poor COLLEGE student my whole life and let’s just say there aren’t a whole lot of people with more money than me. Yeah, I went to college and have a MASTER’s degree (so I figure that YOU are the jealous one)
        No killing robot for the military/industrial complex for me but because I got lucky wth a 312 number in the draft.

        • You worthless turds are all alike, similar to the worthless Black
          turd in the White House whom you worship. I do not consider
          you lucky to have escaped the draft. If you maintained any
          balls, you would have volunteered to serve our country, similar
          to many other Americans. In your infinite wisdom to disdain our
          military, you missed a chance of a life-time to grow in your
          mentality. Our Military Services teach its members, values that
          cannot be learned in your stupid civilian world, especially the
          values of Patriotism. There are too many of your kind that
          believed that escaping the DRAFT, was cool, the same turds
          whom voted for this worthless Black turd from Kenya and
          Hillary Rotten Clinton, but along came Donald Trump to
          thwart the Democrat ambitions of global conquest ramrodded
          by George “NAZI” Soros and this Black Devil from Kenya.

            you are SO ignorant. I”ve always been a “birther”. He ought to be hung for treason and murder with shillary for Benghazi and how they supplied the “rebels” (al qaida) with money/weapons to fight Assad

          • If I am so ignorant, you missspelled “al Qaeda,” incorrectly.
            Now, do you feel that you got that tantrum off of your chest,
            similar to the worthless Black turd of a POS of a token Tar-
            Baby of a Muslim POTUS?

            try to be an adult for 2017

          • No numb-nuts, there is only one way to spell al Qaeda

            correctly. Your two examples of how to spell Koran, maintain

            no relevance. You sure are ignorant. You must be a Black or

            a Muslim, similar to your hero, the Black turd of a POS of a

            token Tar-Baby of a Muslim POTUS. Just to be fair, what is

            your reference to spell Koran and al Qaeda in more than one

      You raise some very interesting points. I shall have to think these though. Thanks for the info.

  5. RockyMtn1776 says:

    I think this article is totally off base. Trump knows exactly where he is and where he wants our nation to go. He also is well aware it’s going to be a fight every inch of the way.

  6. MA in MO says:

    Months ago, it was reported that Trump met with Kissinger. This meeting was simply to ask for Kissenger’s — thus the globalist elites whom Soros is one of — permission to run for President. Trump was told in that meeting that he had to kow-tow to those same people or he would be ruined. Even with knowing that, Trump will be far and above a better president than anyone else would have been. The Book of Revelation’s will be played out, of which we are currently in the beginning stages, whether any one likes it or not. God Almighty raises men up to do his work. There is absolutely no one in power that God has not allowed to be there. My personal opinion is that Trump was allowed to become President because God is just not quite ready for America’s destruction. In four years that will be a very different story. In some ways it appears to me that Obama has been dethroned. Why I do not know nor do I care. Jesus Christ is returning and as for me and my house, it cannot be soon enough. Praise the Lord.

  7. Whatever this article may insinuate, Donald Trump, our 45th POTUS, is far from where these so-called global turds want him. It is evident that these turds maintain a short memory as to how he defeated Hillary Rotten Clinton and the Establishment. Trump is the West’s new champion of justice, and after Trump has been inaugurated as our 45th POTUS, permit him to unlease his Department of Justice to get rid of the Communists, Anarchists, Marxists, Socialists, Criminals and Muslims whom have negatively infected our American way of life. In order to strike an example of true patriotism, it would behoove POTUS Trump, to re-implement the DRAFT, so that every eligible male and female graduating students from our High Schools, do not matriculate into a school of higher learning or to accept a position on the American economy, until they have completed at least 4 years in any of our 5 military services. Our 5 military services, teach their members, values that they cannot learn in their positions as civilians, and when their military contracts have been fulfilled, they can remain in the military or return to their civiian lives, much more informed than when they joined our miitary services, and become positive additions to their communities, instead of standing on some American street corner, smoking pot or worse. At least, our American military members have had a chance to maintain some skin in the game, where under this Black turd of a POS of a token Tar-Baby of a Muslm POTUS, the same chance was not available, primarily because currently, we Americans maintain a volunteer force. Mandatory conscription has functioned well for the Israeli’s and should function well for we Americans.
