Regardless of a person’s political persuasion, few will argue with the fact that the 2016 U.S. presidential election will be remembered, talked about, and studied for years to come. Perhaps more shocking than Donald Trump’s surprise win, was the undeniable confirmation of what many conservatives have suspected for years, which is that the mainstream media has been in bed with, and been colluding with the Democrat Party for years.
Largely as a result of the mountains of evidence released during the 2016 election by Wikileaks confirming the collusion between the media and the Democrat Party, Americans all across the political spectrum have lost faith in the mainstream media as an independent and unbiased “news” source.
According to one poll, as few as 6% of Americans say they trust the media. That begs the question then: Knowing that the mainstream media acts more like the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party by pumping out lies and politically spun nonsense, why on earth are Americans believing what the mainstream media says about the U.S. and the global economy? If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results, then believing the media about the economy would render most Americans insane by definition.
Perhaps under any other circumstances, the giant wave of optimism that is now sweeping America as a result of Donald Trump’s victory would be warranted, but in today’s reality, it simply is not warranted. Many of Trump’s most rabid supporters have called on myself and others to stop being so pessimistic. Personally, I am a huge Donald Trump supporter, but this isn’t about being “optimistic,” or “pessimistic.” It’s about fiction, or reality.
In many ways the optimism people are glowing with could prove to be deadly. Yes, that says deadly, Why? Because the optimism isn’t rooted in fact, but rather it’s more like wishful thinking. Rather than preparing for an economic apocalypse, millions of people are whistling past the graveyard.
As experts like Jim Rogers, Bill Holter, Peter Schiff, Jim Richards, and Dr. Jim Willie have been warning for a long time, America is headed for the worst times that this nation has EVER experienced, and in the end it isn’t going to make a difference whether Donald Trump is in the White House or not. This is about arithmetic, and facts, not a new version of “Hope and Change.”
In the interview below, Dr. Jim Willie joins Turd Ferguson just before the Thanksgiving holiday to give a much more accurate report on the true state of the U.S. Dollar and the economy, than the mainstream media is reporting. In the interview, Dr. Willie covers the U.S. election results, the roiling global markets post-election, what the turmoil in the currency markets may suggest, how changes in global interest rates will impact the global economy and markets, and much more.
After the interview, Michael Snyder reviews many of the things Americans are so optimistic will get better under a Trump Presidency, but Snyder also warns that America is indeed headed for the worst times that we’ve EVER experienced, and in the end it isn’t going to make a difference whether Donald Trump is in the White House or not.
For those of you who are finally starting to realize there is major trouble on the horizon, largely as a result of the corruption within our own government and the 2016 election, the failure of the U.S. Dollar and Western banks, deteriorating conditions here domestically, or perhaps even because of nuclear tensions reaching all new heights, then I suggest you get your FREE GUIDE for how to survive Martial Law here, because if/when things begin to go south, by then it will be too late to do anything about it.
For anyone with no idea where to begin making preparations, a very good, and very inexpensive tool to teach you how and what you should be preparing, is a book called “Conquering the Collapse.” Since I’ve practically worn out my own iPad reading my copy, in the following link I provide you with a review of the book: Be Ready For Any Emergency – The Crucial Guide For Any Family’s Safety (Videos). You can learn more about the coming crisis in the links at the bottom under the heading titled, “If nothing else, these links are essential.” The writing is on the wall everywhere… Begin preparing….
The election of Donald Trump has brought a giant wave of optimism to conservative America unlike anything that we have seen since probably the days of Ronald Reagan. Millions of Americans that were once deeply pessimistic about the future of this country now have hope again thanks to what many consider to be the greatest miracle in the history of U.S. politics. And just like so many of the pre-election polls, the predictions about how the nation would immediately respond to a Trump victory have turned out to be completely wrong as well.
Instead of a historic stock market crash as many in the mainstream media were projecting, we have seen an unprecedented stock market rally in the days following Trump’s win.
Instead of an immediate economic downturn, many economic indicators have surged to their highest levels in quite some time in recent weeks.
And instead of feeling gloomy about the future, many Americans are feeling really good about what is ahead for the first time in a very long time.
The following are 12 signs of extreme optimism in America now that Donald Trump has been elected…
#1 The U.S. dollar is once again the strongest currency in the world. It has soared in value since Trump’s stunning election victory and on Wednesday the U.S. dollar index hit the highest level that we have seen since March 2003.
#3 The University of Michigan’s consumer expectations index has hit the highest level in 18 months.
#4 The percentage of Americans that believe that the U.S. will experience “continuous good times” over the next year has risen to 46 percent, which is up 11 percent from the reading in October.
#5 Some other newly released numbers show that U.S. consumers are the most optimistic that they have been in a decade…
According to the latest report, in some cases, Americans are the most hopeful they have been in more than a decade. For the first time since 2006, 37 percent of households said they expect their personal finances to improve in 2017. Also hitting decade highs: real income expectations, as wage growth continues to gain strength in a broadening swath of the economy.
#6 Investor optimism about stock prices has risen to the highest level in 21 months.
#7 U.S. manufacturing PMI has hit the highest level in 13 months.
#8 The number of U.S. oil rigs in operation has hit a 10 month high.
#9 The Federal Reserve appears to think that the U.S. economy is now “strong enough” for a hike in interest rates in December.
#12 As I discussed just a few days ago, Gallup has also found that the percentage of Republicans that believe that the U.S. economy is “getting better” jumped from 16 percent just prior to the election to 49 percent after the election.
Now that Donald Trump has been elected, many Americans are convinced that the U.S. economy will become stronger than ever before.
Now that Donald Trump has been elected, many Americans are convinced that the U.S. military will be rebuilt and will become so strong that nobody will ever dare to mess with us.
