Has the Trumpian Revolution begun

Before we get to the article at hand many might ask why we cover political and health issues when our main focus in the stock markets and the financial arena.  The short and simple answer is that all these fields are connected; we don’t have free market forces anymore. Everything is manipulated; from the food, you eat to data you are provided.

 If you are aware of this you can plan accordingly. Identifying the problem is over 80% of the solution and this is why most people don’t know what to do because they don’t really understand the problem. Now you know why we are the only financial website that covers such a wide array of topics that on the surface appear to be unrelated but are in fact, deeply interwoven.  Mass psychology is a very powerful tool and if employed correctly can help you spot the grotesque levels of manipulation the masses are subjected to. We strongly suggest that you view or read or view Plato’s allegory of the cave.  You might also find the following article to be of interest:

Inflation, according to Merriam-Webster online dictionary is defined as follows: a continuing rise in the general price level usually attributed to an increase in the volume of money and credit relative to available goods and services

We all pretty much have felt the effects of inflation in one form or another. However, economists and the central bankers chose to define inflation as an increase in the price of goods. This is an ingenious way to hide what they are doing as the real definition of inflation is an increase in the supply of money. If they can inflate the money supply and control the cost of some goods, to create the illusion that all is well. Then they have more or less won as the average person has come to associate inflation in terms of rising prices. Inflation the Silent Killer Tax that’s destroying Middle Class America

The wailing and keening over the choice of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA appears to be a lead indicator of a coming revolution far beyond Reagan’s.

“Trump Taps Climate Skeptic For Top Environmental Post,” said the Wall Street Journal. “Climate Change Denial,” bawled a disbelieving New York Times, which urged the Senate to put Pruitt in a “dust bin.”

Clearly, though his victory was narrow, Donald Trump remains contemptuous of political correctness and defiant of liberal ideology.

For environmentalism, as conservative scholar Robert Nisbet wrote in 1982, is more than the “most important social movement” of the 20th century. It is a militant and dogmatic faith that burns heretics.

“Environmentalism is well on its way to becoming the third great wave of redemptive struggle in Western history,” wrote Nisbet, “the first being Christianity, the second modern socialism.” In picking a “climate denier” to head EPA, Trump is rejecting revealed truth.

Yet, as with his choices of Steve Bannon as White House strategist and Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, he has shown himself to be an unapologetic apostate to liberal orthodoxy.

Indeed, with his presidency, we may be entering a post-liberal era.

In 1950, literary critic Lionel Trilling wrote, “In the United States at this time liberalism is not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition. For it is the plain fact that nowadays there are no conservative or reactionary ideas in general circulation.”

The rise of the conservative movement of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan revealed liberalism’s hour to be but a passing moment. Yet, today, something far beyond conservatism seems to be afoot.

As Hegel taught, in the dialectic of history the thesis calls into existence the antithesis. What we seem to be seeing is a rejection, and a counter-reformation against the views and values that came out of the social and political revolutions of the 1960s.

Consider the settled doctrine Trump disrespected with Pruitt.

We have long been instructed that climate change is real, that its cause is man-made, that it imperils the planet with rising seas, hurricanes and storms, that all nations have a duty to curb the release of carbon dioxide to save the world for future generations.

This is said to be “scientific truth,” and “climate deniers” are like people who believe the earth is flat and the sun revolves around it. Some hold the matter to be so grave that climate deniers should be censored for promoting socially destructive falsehoods.

Yet, the people remain skeptical.

Their worry is not that the rising waters of the Med will swamp the Riviera, but that tens of millions of Arabs, Muslims and Africans may be coming across to swamp Europe, and that millions of Mexicans may cross the Rio Grande to swamp the USA.

Call them climate deniers or climate skeptics, but they see the establishment as running the Big Con to effect a transfer of wealth and power away from the people – and to themselves.

Across the West, establishments have lost credibility.

The proliferation of minority parties, tearing off pieces of the traditional ruling parties, points to a growing distrust in ruling regimes and a return to identifying with the nation and tribe whence one came.

A concomitant of this is a growing disbelief in egalitarianism and in the equality of all races, creeds, nations, cultures and peoples.

The Supreme Court may say all religions are equal and all must be treated equally. But do Americans believe Christianity and Islam are equal? How could they, when Christians claim their faith has as its founder the Son of God and God himself?

After calling for a ban on Muslim immigration, Trump was elected president. After inviting a million refugees from Syria’s civil war into Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel admits having made a mistake and is now in favor of letting German cities and towns decide if women should be allowed to wear burqas.

A sea change in thought is taking place in the West.

Liberalism appears to be a dying faith. America’s elites may still preach their trinity of values: diversity, democracy, equality. But the majorities in America and Europe are demanding that the borders be secured and Third World immigrants kept out.

The next president disbelieves in free trade. He wants a border wall. He questions the wisdom of our Mideast wars and the need for NATO. He is contemptuous of democratist dogma that how other nations rule themselves is our business. He rejects transnationalism and globalism.

“There is no global anthem, no global currency, no certificate of global citizenship,” said Trump in Cincinnati, “We pledge allegiance to one flag, and that flag is the American flag. From now on, it’s going to be America first. … We’re going to put ourselves first.”

That’s not Adlai Stevenson or Jimmy Carter or Barack Obama.

Nothing seems settled or certain. All is in flux. But change is coming. “Things are in the saddle, and ride mankind.”

Has the Trumpian Revolution begun


‘Germany should send back foreigners to save lives, stop appeasing Islamists’ – Bavarian MP to RT — RT News

The fact that three of the terror attacks that shocked Germany last week took place in its largest state of Bavaria is a “nightmare” for locals, and shows a failure of the EU and Berlin to deal with migration, Thomas Jahn of the CSU party told RT.

Jahn, a vice chairman of Bavaria’s dominant Christian Social Union (CSU) conservative campaign, lambasted the migration policy pursued by Angela Merkel – the chair of his party’s traditional ally, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

“People in Bavaria and in [the] whole [of] Germany say that, of course, Mrs. Merkel has failed and, historically, the nation because she decided to ignore the German immigration law and she opened the borders of our country last year for two million immigrants from countries outside Europe,” Jahn said, adding that the government is to blame for the“nightmare” terror spate that has descended upon Germany.

“It’s really a nightmare [what] politicians brought to Germany and Bavaria, and people are very worried to be [the] next victims of terrorism in our country,” he said.

In order to prevent terror from spreading, Germany must secure its borders by introducing tougher border controls. In addition, Berlin must not hesitate to deport all new arrivals who could pose a threat to the country’s security, the MP argued.

“We need to control our borders, that is the most important thing at the moment, and we need to send…the dangerous people with Islamist ideology back to the countries outside Europe and [the] European Union,” the politician said.

While Bavaria’s interior minister, Joachim Hermann, has suggested that Germany’s internal army could be deployed to tackle major terror threats, Jahn believes such a move would be an “overreaction.” Instead, he says authorities should focus on expanding existing resources – particularly giving more powers to the police force.

“We have to give our police more rights,” Jahn stressed, before adding that “we have to send back foreigners very quickly, back to their countries, to save our lives and save security in our countries.”

Although the majority of Bavarian attackers were not German nationals, having fled war-torn regions of Afghanistan and Syria to resettle in Europe, the issue of home-grown terrorism inspired by violent Islam should not be ignored, Jahn said.

“The problem is that we have some kind of ideologies, we have some kind of Islamist ideologies that we never controlled in the last few years, we don’t have much attention on it,” Jahn said, adding that the advancement of extremist teachings within Europe should serve as“one of the greatest reasons we have to stop this kind of appeasement policy in Europe.”

In the wake of the attacks that rocked the Bavarian cities of Wurzburg, Munich, and Ansbach – at least two of which were linked to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) – Bavarian Governor Horst Seehofer said that “Islamist terrorism has arrived in Germany,” adding that Germans are “full of fear” as they face “an entirely new dimension of terrorism – the Islamist-minded terrorism.”

Hermann echoed Seehofer’s statement, proposing that Berlin deny entry to all asylum seekers who cannot prove their identity with a valid ID.

“Deportation into a war zone should not be taboo as well,” he stressed in an interview to Suddeutsche Zeitung, referring to refugees who do not abide by German law.

“You have to seriously consider how such people should be treated if they violate laws or pose a threat,” he said.

Germany’s Terror, Mayhem, and Murder Spree: Thank You, Mrs. Merkel

Written by  William F. Jasper

Shooting, stabbing, hacking, bombing: A week-long spree of deadly terror attacks has left 10 dead, scores injured, and millions more terrified and outraged in Germany.

A 27-year-old Syrian asylum seeker was killed in an apparent suicide bombing in Ansbach on Sunday evening, when a backpack bomb he was wearing detonated, injuring 15 others, four of whom are in serious condition. He, reportedly, had attempted to enter a music festival, but had been refused admittance. Had the explosive been detonated inside the crowded venue, many of the 2,500 in attendance would likely have been casualties. The Ansbach terror bombing capped a week of jihadist violence that has put Germany on edge and fanned outrage toward Prime Minister Angela Merkel (shown), who has continued her open-border policies, despite widespread anger over the 2015 migration crisis that saw over one million “refugees” flood into Germany.

Earlier in the day on Sunday, another Syrian asylum seeker was arrested in the town of Reutlingen after attacking a pregnant Polish woman on the street with a machete and injuring two other people. The expectant mother died, as did her unborn child. However, in keeping with the political correctness of the day, the pro-abortion media referenced only the death of the mother, reporting only one person killed in the attack.

The murderous attacks on Sunday followed an attack on July 18 by a knife-and-axe-wielding Afghan refugee on a train traveling between Treuchtlingen and Wurzburg, that left four injured, and a shooting rampage at a Munich shopping mall on July 22 that killed nine.

Compared to France, Belgium, and Britain, until this recent series of violent attacks, Germany had largely escaped the wave of Islamist terror. There were, however, plenty of clues that terrorism might soon be visited upon the land. Mass sexual assaults across Germany last year by bands of Muslim refugee males had already stirred public outrage. In the most infamous case, as many as 1,000 migrant men were involved in sex attacks and rape against women at the Cologne railway station on New Year’s Eve. In May, a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” stabbed one man to death and wounded three others, in a knife attack at a train station near Munich.

In June, four Syrians accused of being ISIS operatives were arrested and charged with plotting a suicide bombing attack on Dusseldorf mirroring the deadly ISIS (Islamic State) attacks on Paris, Nice, and Brussels. Besides setting off explosives in a crowded tourist area of the city, the Dusseldorf plot allegedly also called for additional ISIS terrorists to kill as many as possible with firearms and other weapons.

Here is a summary of the recent terror spree in Germany:

July 18 knife-axe attack: A young man reported to be a teenage Afghan refugee, armed with an axe and a knife, attacked and injured four passengers. Some witnesses quoted by German media said they had heard the assailant shout “Allahu akbar” (“God is great”) during the attack. He was shot dead by police. The Islamic State claimed credit for the attack, releasing a video recorded by the attacker before the incident.

July 22 Munich shooting rampage: A teenager reported to be of Iranian extraction shot nine people to death and wounded 35 more at a shopping mall in Munich, before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide. The German and European officials, and the European press, have bent over backwards to assure one and all that the gunman, one “David Sonboly,” had “no connections” whatsoever to ISIS/ISIL or any other Islamist group. In fact, the prevailing story has been that his deadly attack was inspired by Norway’s “rightwing” mass-murderer Anders Breivik. Former jihadist (and now a Christian) Walid Shoebat calls this media narrative a “coverup” and presents evidence including incriminating pages from Sonboly’s Facebook account showing his fanatical Islamist leanings. Moreover, says Shoebat, the terrorist’s real name is Ali Daud Sunbuli, which is Arabic, not Iranian, and was westernized by the media in an obvious attempt to censor and deny an Islamic terror connection.

July 24 machete attack: The 21-year-old Syrian refugee (whose identity has still not been released by authorities) was apprehended by police after a motorist rammed him with his vehicle, as the murderer attempted to escape on foot. The Syrian attacker had been previously arrested at least once for a violent crime, according to police authorities.

July 24 suicide bombing: The 27-year-old Syrian refugee who allegedly blew himself up outside the Ansbach music festival has not been identified by name. However, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann stated today that the bomber had left behind a video pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and that the ISIS-affiliated media group Amaq also claimed the attacker was an ISIS “soldier.” The man, who reportedly had been living in Germany for two years and had benn denied asylum status by German authorities a year ago, but managed to stay in Germany and avoid deportation.

German citizens, Members of the European Parliament, and angry residents throughout the European Union are charging Angela Merkel with having “blood on her hands,” after the terror binge.

A leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), which opposes Merkel’s open border policies, posted a Twitter message after the Munich shooting that said, “Merkel’s unity party: thank you for the terror in Germany and Europe!”



France hit by power cuts, strikes & clashes with police as labor law protests deepen (PHOTOS, VIDEO) — RT News

Households and businesses throughout France have been left without power as part of a strike by union workers against the country’s controversial labor reform. It comes as demonstrators hit the streets to voice their opposition to the legislation.

Power cuts in Saint-Nazaire led to some 120,000 households being left without electricity just after 11am local time on Thursday, BFM TV cited Loire-Atlantique prefecture as saying.

Electricity was also shut off at the town hall of Tulle, and over 1 million homes in the Paris region were switched over to a low-cost power supply, Reuters reported.

It comes after members of the CGT union at 16 of France’s 19 nuclear plants – which provide the majority of the country’s electricity – voted for a one-day strike Wednesday.

Along with addressing sector-specific demands, the strikes and power cuts are aimed at protesting a much contested labor law reform forced through by President Francois Hollande’s Socialist government, which will make it easier for employers to hire and lay off workers.

Almost half the country’s rail services were also brought to a halt on Thursday. The CGT said its workers briefly halted departures from the Gare de Lyon station in Paris by occupying the rail traffic control office.

The CGT also said it cut off power to the holiday home of the leader of French employers’ body MEDEF, Pierre Gattaz, after he accused the union earlier this week of acting like “terrorists” and “thugs.”

Dock workers also joined the movement in the northern French city of Le Havre.

But union workers weren’t the only ones voicing their disapproval of the labor reform law on Thursday. Ordinary citizens across the country also organized protests against the legislation.

Five policemen were injured during clashes with protesters in Toulouse and two people were arrested, according to the local prefecture. Demonstrators in the city blocked an exit on the ring road, La Depeche reported.

Reporting from Paris, RT’s Anastasia Churkina tweeted that protesters were gathered in the French capital and will soon organize a march.

Senior AfD Member Urges Sacking of Merkel ‘in Straightjacket’

A senior member of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) mounted an attack on Angela Merkel, calling to remove her from office “in a straightjacket,” at a time when the Chancellor is increasingly pressed for her open door refugee policy.

Björn Höcke, the chairman of AfD in Thuringia, made the remarks during a party rally, which saw approximately 2,400 people gather in the regional capital of Erfurt on Wednesday. Five-hundred activists held a counterdemonstration, Germany’s weekly news magazine Focus reported.

Germany is “ruled by idiots,” he added, referring to Merkel’s management of the refugee crisis. According to official data, approximately 1.1 million asylum seekers entered the country in 2015 alone. This is a record number for Germany, home to 81 million people, or any other European nation.

A day before the rally, the public prosecutor’s office in the city of Halle launched an investigation into Höcke on charges of sedition following his speech at a rally in Saxony-Anhalt, the media outlet noted.

The debate on migrants and Merkel’s open door policy has been a major test for the government, the ruling party and the country’s political leadership. It has been overshadowed by mass sexual assaults and robberies, which took place in Cologne during New Year celebrations. The attacks, which shocked the nation, are largely blamed on migrants from the Middle East and North Africa.

Not surprisingly, the tough stance on immigration has so far paid off in terms of poll standings for Eurosceptic and right-wing parties. A survey, published on Monday, shows that AfD would receive 11.5 percent of the vote if parliamentary elections were held today in what is the best result for the party in its history.

Self-Destruct: ‘Merkel Hurls Europe Into Chaos’ – German Politician

Broad statements cannot replace real actions by the government to solve the European migrant crisis, German politician Christian Lindner said.

Leader of the German Free Democratic Party Christian Lindner accused Chancellor Angela Merkel of inaction on the migrant issue and an improper migrant policy, according to the official website of the party.

With her actions, the German Chancellor has plunged Germany and Europe as a whole into chaos, the politician said.

Germany should not take single-handed decisions on solving the migrant issue, he added.

He also harshly criticized Merkel’s famous words calling for people to support migrants: “We can do this.” Lindner said the words cannot replace real actions needed from the government. The only way to resolve the crisis is an immigration law systematizing registration of migrants and contributing to their legal integration.

Cash Crisis: If Schengen Goes, the Euro is Finished, Warns Merkel

Europe has to control its outer, not internal borders, and the very existence of the single currency depends on the survival of Schengen, the German chancellor said.

The success of Europe’s single market and currency is dependent on the survival of the Schengen Area, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday, remarking that the EU is “vulnerable” due to a lack of control of migration.

“We are vulnerable … because we do not yet have the order, the control, which we would like,” Merkel told an economic forum in Mainz, German newspaper Die Welt reported.

The Schengen Area is supposed to guarantee freedom of movement for people and goods between all but six of the 28 EU member states without border checks.

Romania and Bulgaria are currently in the process of joining Schengen and four states from outside the EU (Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) are also a part of the economic area.

Merkel said on Monday that Europe must better control its external borders in order to save Schengen and the single market; as the Eurozone’s largest economy, Germany must fight for the preservation of the single market.

End of Europe: Merkel is Doing Good Job at ‘Destroying Her Own Continent’

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is working to gradually destroy the EU and European civilization from within, French lawyer Gabriel Robin wrote for Boulevard Voltaire.

 As Merkel continues to push her migration policy, allowing the large number of North African and Middle Eastern refugees to enter the EU, dissatisfaction within Europe’s largest countries and Germany itself is also rising.

“[Merkel’s] migration policy is questioned in Europe and now even at the heart of German institutions,” Robin said, as quoted by Boulevard Voltaire.

The author questions what it could be that pushes Merkel to follow her migration policies. Is it her desire to help German companies that seek to keep wages down by employing more migrants? Or perhaps Merkel’s ideas of Soviet-like internationalism and cosmopolitanism which she learned while growing up in East Germany, Robin asked.

There is already a clash within Europe, as many Eastern European nations openly disapprove of Merkel’s policies of mass migration. They want to keep their national identities and refuse to “become Berlin’s lackey in this demise” of the European continent, Robin said.

“It’s time for Angela Merkel to redefine [her policies], it’s time for her to return to a reason for the salvation of our continent, which is already very weak and now it’s been put in danger by this lady,” Robin wrote for Boulevard Voltaire.

Merkel’s Power in ‘Free Fall’ as Germany Loses Control Over Own Borders

From the outside looking, it may seem that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now at the peak of her power after 10 years in office. But on the inside, her political power has been seriously eroded, journalist Erik Kirschbaum wrote.

Recently, the chancellor has been criticized by both Germans and her coalition allies.

Merkel’s popularity has been in “free fall” over the last three months amid the refugee crisis in Europe and fears that the government is losing control of its borders. She faces a showdown with her own ruling party this weekend when the Christian Democrats meet at their annual party congress.

“There will be no vote this year, but plenty of testy debate is expected to surround the woman who was just named Time magazine’s person of the year for her European leadership in the debt and refugee crises,” the article read.

It added that many of the Christian Democratic delegates are upset about Merkel’s open-door policies on refugees, which is damaging her reputation.
