GOOD TRUMP, BAD TRUMP – WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON?
We expected the Super Shemitah/Jubilee time period (which officially ends on November 20th with the end of the Catholic Jubilee) to be one of dramatic change and chaos.
And, did we ever get it!
Since the beginning of the Jubilee year, in October of last year, two massive events have happened. Brexit and Trump.
Both were completely unexpected by most.
Brexit saw the worst day in worldwide stock markets in history the day after the vote.
And, interestingly, Dow futures were down 777 points at one point as it became clear Trump had won the “selection.” But, then the markets had a massive rebound the next day.
The question is, is Trump really a good guy who has gone rogue from his establishment jesuit/masonic background and is truly going to “drain the swamp” or is he a trojan horse?
At this point it is really difficult to tell.
Let’s look at both possibilities.
Many are of the opinion that he is almost savior like and is going to save the US from its ruinous socialist, bankrupt and corrupt government.
So far, on this side of things, it is mostly talk (not action – but to be fair he can’t take much action yet).
Here is a list of 100 action items the Trump camp has issued.
Many of them are excellent, including:
- Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress
- A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)
- A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated
- A 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service
- I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
- I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
- Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy.
- Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure
And there are quite a few more…
However, right in the article, it shows how Congress is against (for obvious reasons) many of these items.
Many of his “good” ideas, including building a wall across an entire continent and protectionist policies are negative for the US, economically speaking. But, many don’t see it that way.
At the very least, if he is Good Trump, he is going to have a lot of opposition to what he wants to do. Calls for his assassination are already rampant… and that’s if he can get many of these things pushed through Congress.
Ironically, Trump has made some changes simply by claiming the title of “president elect.” These are especially visible as regards US trade treaties that Trump along with many others have found to be detrimental to US prosperity and especially to US workers.
The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has suddenly been put on hold despite its tremendous corporate backing. The deal has been consigned to a kind of legislative “suspended animation” with Obama himself admitting it’s not going anywhere. This is not in any sense a negative in my view.
