President Trump held a roundtable discussion and he seized the opportunity to pump the economy and war machine, but there’s a problem…
So the roundtable discussion was on the subject of tax reform.
Fair enough. Citing the economy is pertinent to the topic at hand.
That said, we have been in a “recovery” basically since the S&P bottomed out at 666 on 03-06-09.
There’s this expression “long in the tooth”. It means that something has gone on way longer than it should. The expression is used for describing things like how long our economy has gone without a recession.
In other words, this economic “recovery”, “expansion”, “boom” or whatever you want to call it since March, 2009, is a little “long in the tooth”.
And Candidate Trump called-out the economy of today for exactly what it is – a politically driven Fed created bubble:
- We’re in a big, fat, ugly bubble (which still hasn’t popped).
- The Fed is doing “political things” (which is now supposedly is OK since Trump is a politician).
- Interest rates cannot go up or the whole thing comes crashing down.
That said, and in stark contrast to Candidate Trump, President Trump sees that everything is awesome today, the Fed is still political, though if the President were to explain this it would be “political” in a good sense, and finally, interest rates are (even if slowly) going up.
There is a stark contrast between Candidate Trump and President Trump, and that’s just a clip of Candidate Trump speaking for less than a minute.
Hearing the President pumping the economy today, as if ‘Murica were the greatest thing since apple pie, is kind of sour apple tasting.
Everybody should be able to see that the economy is stagnant at best, even if in my opinion the economy is getting worse.
The second point of this post is to listen to President Trump’s remarks regarding the missile strike in Syria.
The President gives praise to fully entrenched Swamp Creature and former Bush Warmonger turned Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton.
The President then goes on to state that every single missile hit its target, and that not one missile was shot down as claimed by the Syrians.
What The President did not mention at all was the gas attack which caused the U.S. to strike a sovereign nation, or the ramifications of the U.S. striking a chemical weapons facility, along with any spillover chemical effects the military strike, might have on the region.
Syrian first responders to a “chemical weapons facility” bombing didn’t even use N-95 rated face masks.
So without further ado, or pointing out the obvious, serious questions as to exactly whose side President Trump is on, or whether he’s captured by the Deep State, or punking them, here’s the video clip started at the right moment of going from Kudlow on to Bolton.
The video can alternatively be viewed in its entirety:
- Trump’s ‘Yes man’ Kudlow agreeing that after a nine year “recovery” we’re barely in the early stages of the biggest economic boom in history.
- Trump applauding and praising warmongering Swamp Creature extraordinaire National Security Advisor John Bolton.
In other words:
- We have a TV personality turned National Economic Advisor, who, seeing as how Kudlow sees no bubbles, peddles fake news himself.
- A President Trump that loves the war machine and all the other nasties of the warmongering neocons.
Which, on the surface, looks like:
- President Trump is now embracing fake news.
- President Trump is now embracing the swamp and all the warmongering it stands for.
Or am I missing something here?
Because it’s hard to see how both America is great again, and the swamp is being drained.
Therefore: Economic collapse and geo-political tensions are about to take center stage.
And it’s gonna be ugly, like that big, fat, ugly bubble.
