Will The FED Deliberately Crash the Economy to Defeat Donald Trump? - Nathan McDonald

Will The FED Deliberately Crash the Economy to Defeat Donald Trump? - Nathan McDonald
By Nathan McDonald 3 years ago 1871 Views 1 comment

December 15, 2016

Gold and silver have been beaten and battered with the recent FED hike rate announcement, even though it is only a pathetic 0.25% - scarcely anything that will stop the avalanche of fiat money and inflation that is plaguing the world over.

What is causing even more of a correction in precious metals is the news from Janet Yellen and her peers in the FED that states there will be three more hikes upcoming in 2017!

This is a complete reversal of the FED's past policies under President Obama, in which they have done everything possible to keep this bogus "recovery" afloat, if you can even call it that.

This announcement has led many in the precious metals space to scoff and wave their hands in dismissal, and really, can you blame them for doing so?

The FED has been the laughingstock of the precious metals community since the 2008 crisis began and they plummeted rates to these historically low levels. The reason for this is because of the incredible amount of MOPE and jaw-boning that they have been engaged in over this time period.

For years, the FED has weaved a net of confusion over the markets, acting bearish and then dovish in the same sentences. This, as I have highlighted many times in the past, has been purely to confuse the public and keep them in a constant state of unknowing.

Yet, perhaps this time is different? One thing that has changed is the fact that President-Elect Donald Trump will soon be taking office, despite the wishes of the financial overlords and elites.

This of course includes the FED and as I predicted all last year, the FED would not do anything with interest rates until the election results were concluded, not wanting to hurt the chances of Hillary Clinton winning, and not wanting to crash the economy on Obama's final stretch in office.

Now, they can act and use the FED as a weapon. The best, last hope that the elites have of defeating Donald Trump is to destroy his first four years in office.

If they are able to orchestrate a new crash in the markets, then they will be able to blame the forthcoming disaster on Donald Trump, even though its occurrence has nothing to do with him.

I believe that this is going to be their best plan of action, if they want to destroy the spirits of Trump's supporters and I believe this is exactly how they plan on bringing him down. Now, all that we can do is inform the public as best as we can, wait and see, prepare ourselves by investing in precious metals and seeing how the situation resolves itself.

Prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.

Nathan served eight years in the Royal Canadian Navy as an electronics technician, seeing the true state of the world, before starting his first successful business. He has since gone on to create a number of businesses, all of which are still in operation and growing.

In addition to this, Nathan runs a network of successful precious metals blogs, and a growing newsletter that has attracted readers from all around the world.

Do you think Mr. Trump is too blind to see that employing Goldman Sachs and Exxon executives in his cabinet makes it seem like it will be the same swamp of greedy liars as ever?
