My Greatest Fear...
Well, Hillary Clinton has become irrelevant! Woo Hoo!! But what is in store for us now?? Societal collapse comes in many colors and its causes a thousand more. While there are some easy to dream up situations, like say an EMP attack from Iran or the NORKs, what about the more convoluted paths to collapse??
Currently the Stock Market is blazing its way up the record charts, that has me very nervous. Why? Because markets don't crash on the bottom. Also, there is plenty of proof out there to suggest that it is easily manipulated, another words, they don't crash by themeselves.
In 1999, economist Paul Krugman was critical of Soros's effect on financial markets.
"[N]obody who has read a business magazine in the last few years can be unaware that these days there really are investors who not only move money in anticipation of a currency crisis, but actually do their best to trigger that crisis for fun and profit. These new actors on the scene do not yet have a standard name; my proposed term is 'Soroi'." Readmore
George Soros, the man that “Broke the Bank of England” has been involved in the manipulation of the markets and currencies for a long time. He was heavily involved in messing up the market even worse than it was during the Housing Collapse...
“The collapse in the American stock markets was a calamity for the campaign of John McCain. In September, McCain was running strongly against Barack Obama. Some polls had him leading Barack Obama by 3 percent before the market broke. By October 7th, Obama had taken the lead across America. What changed in one month? The trigger was the market crash. Who pulled the trigger and why? Who benefited?”
“During the collapse of the stock market, noted Wall Street commentator and CNBC star James Cramer noted that traditional short-sellers were not as active as one might expected ("regular short sellers are not doing this" and "traditional short sellers are not active" and "are not so patriotic that they would be doing this"), and said that his sources have mentioned that "financial terrorism" may be at work.”
Back in 2008 Anne Applebaum penned an article titled The Iceland Syndrome in the Washington Post. It began with this...
“Imagine this scenario: In a medium-size European country -- call it Country X -- the bank regulators hold an ordinary meeting. These being extraordinary times, the regulators discuss the health of various banks, including the country's largest -- call it Bank Y -- which is owned by an even larger Italian financial group. Last spring, Bank Y, which is perfectly healthy, transferred a large sum to its now somewhat-less-healthy Italian parent; since this is nothing unusual, the regulators drop the subject and move on.
The following day, the matter is reported in a marginal, far-right newspaper in somewhat different terms: "A billion dollars transferred to Italy! Country X's hard-earned money going abroad!" Within hours, as if on cue, everyone starts selling shares in Bank Y, whose stock price plunges. So does the rest of Country X's smallish stock market. So does Country X's currency. Within a few more hours, Country X is calling for an international bailout, the IMF is on the phone and the government is wobbling.
Except for that final sentence -- there was no international bailout or call to the International Monetary Fund, and the government is fine -- that is a brief description of something that happened last week to one of Poland's largest banks. A real meeting, followed by an unsubstantiated rumor in a dodgy newspaper, and a bunch of nervous investors started selling. Shares in the bank collapsed by the largest margin in its history; for one ugly day, they dragged down the rest of the Polish stock market and currency as well. ”
She finish her article up with...
“If you wanted to destabilize a country, wouldn't this be an excellent time to do it? If Country X's stock market can crash after the publication of a single article in an obscure newspaper, think what might happen if someone conducted a systematic campaign against Country X. And if you can imagine this, so can others.All governments have enemies, internal and external, or at least are faced with elements that do not wish them well: the political opposition, the country next door, the former imperial power. For someone, there will always be the temptation to bring down the government, destabilize the country and thus create political chaos.
Even when there hasn't been political meddling, someone else will suspect that it has occurred, anyway. Here, then, is a prediction: Political instability will follow economic instability like night follows day.”
Ok, thats all water under the bridge right?? Well lets keep that thought playing in your head as background music while you think about the next little tidbit... Were you paying attention to Team O's Quantitative Easing Program??? I stopped counting them after QE4 because it was essentially QE-Infinity. Where were they pumping the freshly printed, or more accurately, digitally created USD's??? The Stock Market.
How many USD's did they prop up the market with???
Byron Wein of the Blackstone Group says...
“Even though we’ve seen company earnings more than double between 2009 and 2014, there has been concern that the market rally has largely been driven by so-called easy money the Fed supplied through its bond-buying program, or quantitative easing.”
Wien quantifies its contribution:
“It took the Fed 95 years to build up a balance sheet of $1 trillion and only six years to go from there to the present level. The Federal Reserve was providing this stimulus to improve the growth of the economy, but it is my view that three quarters of the money injected into the system through the purchase of bonds went into financial assets pushing stock prices up and keeping yields low. If I am right, the Fed contributed almost $3 trillion (some may have gone into bonds) to the $13 trillion rise in the stock market appreciation from the 2009 low to the current level, earnings increases explained $9 trillion (1.5 x $6 trillion) and other factors accounted for $1 trillion. You could argue that the monetary stimulus financed the multiple expansion in this cycle. “ Read More
Now think about that for a minute, 3 TRILLION dollars was pumped into the Stock Market to prop it up. The market has since gone wild, What is that 3trl worth now?? Who is in control of that 3trl?. What would happen if that 3trl plus all of it's gains were pulled out of the Market on January 20th or some other opportune time?
Now what has the diabolical George Soros been doing all this year?? He has been dumping Stocks and buying Gold. So have the Central banks. What do they know?? Are they figuring on a simple natural “Market Correction” which would be damaging enough. Or is it possible there was a back up plan to a Clinton loss?? Or something I am also a firm believer in, the powers that be on the Left maybe never had any intention of winning the 2016 election, which would explain why they put the person with the most beatable background into that position.
Now, how do you get back into power as quickly as possible?? You destroy the economy. In 2 years they could easily regain the House and Senate if the Economy crashed. If that happened, they could easily curb any positive progress and easily put 100% of the blame on Trump. Therefore walking into the Whitehouse in 2020 with ease.
That is my primary nightmare right now... Sure WWIII is also high on the list, but Economic Collapse is the most likely in my opinion, and the “Powers that be”, definitely have a plan.
