AWKWARD: Trump & Lopez-Obrador (AMLO) Become Best Buds As Americans & Mexicans Bicker

Best Friends Forever.

Isn’t it awkward?

There are at least two brand new pieces of evidence which demonstrate that President Donald J. Trump & President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) have become best buds.

The first is with the whole “border crisis” thing.

Mexico has gotten tough, you know?

In fact, there’s been a “crack down” this week with the raid and subsequent arrest of 3,000 “migrants” in Mexico.

But here’s the thing: Sure, some of the “crack down” may indeed be real, however, most people are unknowingly participating in an a Deep State/Globalist orchestrated event leading up to what I believe is not only max pain for the United States, but also this newfound collaboration is a way of making sure Mexico and the United States stay joined at the hip when it comes to evil, planned globalist courses of action.

Said differently, if you think that AMLO and Trump are Deep State Globalists and/or Deep State Globalist Actors/Agents, which I do think, then Trump & AMLO are simply playing their parts in this new found “partnership”.

Lets not get it twisted: The “border crisis” is indeed a “manufactured crisis”.

The MSM propagandists, and amazingly, many in the alternative media, have come to shun anybody saying “manufactured crisis”.

But that is exactly what it is, so I guess it’s like a “truth hurts” thing, a “cognitive dissonance” thing, or perhaps a “living in denial” thing?

I don’t know.

I’m not smart enough to know.

But I do know this: The United States “manufactures crisis” around the world, all day, every day, anywhere and everywhere the United States want to.


I think so.

But then again, I’ve seen first hand that “war is racket”, so I make my point not only from the theoretical, but also from seeing what really happens.

The problem is that the people who’ve been duped can’t believe the Trump Administration would allow a crisis to be manufactured against the United States itself.

However, if you understand that Trump is Deep State in Patriot’s clothing, then it is beyond so amazingly simple that even an idiot like me can see it.

If this whole stupid “border crisis” was actually organic, the US military would have nipped-it in the bud if the Empire wanted to.

Which means the Deep State Globalists, which include Trump & AMLO, want, and therefore need, the crisis, so both Presidents are simply acting out their scripts, attempting to keep the Southern border “crisis” in the news for whatever the Deep State Globalists have planned to throw at us next.

On to point two.

And it has to do with trade.

Though this isn’t getting much coverage in the MSM, or even in the alternative media, trade between the US & Mexico has become more important than ever, especially with all of the Trade Wars going on, so much so that now Mexico, for the first time ever, total dollar-wise, has become the largest trading partner with the United States (for the first two month of 2019).

People think President Trump is going to shut down the Southern border?

After Mexico has topped China in the total dollar value of goods imported and exported between the United States and Mexico?

I don’t think so.

It’s all just part of following the script.

But it brings up a very important point: Mexico and the United States matter more to each other than we are led to believe by the Americans shouting “border crisis”.

It’s funny too, in an ironic kind-of way, because those who shout the loudest live the farthest from the Southern border, and probably think the State of New Mexico is actually part of Mexico.

But I digress.

Furthermore, about those 1,600 migrants “dumped” in Lac Cruces, New Mexico, if the Trump Administration was truly all about Draining the Swamp, and MAGA, wouldn’t those migrants have better been “dumped” in El Paso, Texas, where Robert Francis O’Rourke, who, since this Deep State Globalist’s name sounds a little bit too white, the people call him by the Mexican-Spanish nickname for “Roberto”, which is “Beto”, as in Beto O’Rourke, resides?

And yes, I’m talking about that same Deep State Globalist Beto O’Rourke running for President in 2020.

In other words, wouldn’t the Trump Administration have absolutely loved the tactic of forcing Beto to take some positions, some stands, and more importantly, be forced to act if those migrants had been dumped in Beto’s district of El Paso, Texas, just a few miles away from Las Cruces?

I mean, they were taken there, and they could have just as easily been taken to where there is even more of a US Border Patrol presence.

Las Cruces is basically a “sister city” to El Paso, and many people who live in El Paso work in Las Cruces, and vice-versa.

Yes, ‘Ol Half Dollar lived in El Paso, Texas, for many years and understands all of the intricacies between the United States and Mexico.

Besides, isn’t Trump all about 4-D Chess?

That’s what the they say.

And while I don’t even know how to play 1-D chess myself, I am smart enough to know the best move possible, with those 1600 migrants, would have been to dump them in El Paso, where there is also the largest head count of US Army Soldiers at any one Army Post in the United States in that of Fort Bliss, Texas, located in El Paso.

No matter how much evidence I offer, and no matter how much proof I show, it is not enough to neutralize the intoxicating effects of the Trump Kool-Aid.

Moving on.

The dollar hit a 52-week high on Tuesday:

I do think this is a head fake, however, because if I’m right about the Deep State Globalists’ plan, you can’t bring max pain to America with a strong dollar, so the only question at this point is how high does the head fake go?

Yield on the 10-Year Note continues to move sideways:

Assuming the manipulators continue to juice the major US indexes, however, I still think we could see more of a short-term rise in yield, followed by a plunge in yield once the stock market comes crashing down.

Here’s a look at the S&P 500 which closed at a record high yesterday:

But that’s the thing about max pain – it comes just as everything seems so bullet-proof.

Even if I didn’t get that 10-handle on the fear gauge:

If the manipulators continue to ramp the stock market higher, however, my call for a 10-handle may play-out after all.

Crude oil closed above $66 yesterday:

And that’s with dollar strength too, so once the dollar starts falling, the price of crude oil is really going to take-off.

Dr. Copper is building a McMansion with the massive foundation it’s laying at $2.90:


If what the copper chart shows us is indicative of the economy overall, then for now, the market is content with “wait-n-see”.

Platinum is building a base of its own at $900:

Is anybody noticing that platinum is up 12.5% year-to-date?

I have been looking for palladium to continue with the sideways choppy price action:

And we’re right back in that $1300 to $1400 range.

My downside target for gold has been $1250:

Which is just below gold’s 200-day moving average, which is the price to where I think the cartel is going to strong-arm gold.

Silver really got pummeled yesterday:

The silly technical analysts who, for whatever reason, are in love with paint-by-numbers, would say the bottom is about to fall out of the white metal, so I’m on the look-out for the experts to come out of the wood-works and scream “$12 silver”.

Unsurprisingly, the gold-to-silver ratio is on the climb yet again:

When coupled with a strong dollar and a weak silver “price”, the gold-to-silver ratio arbitrage play is really a no-brainer.

The United States matters to Mexico in big ways.

Mexico matters to the US in the same way.

Either way, they’re both run by globalists.

And the script is moving right along.

New best buds, Trump & AMLO.

Closet BFF’s, they are.

Don’t ask, don’t tell?

Nah, just look.

At actions.

And then.
