Truly a remarkable day yesterday! Donald Trump created a movement unlike anything ever seen amongst the remaining Americans who can still think for themselves. “We” were given one last chance to turn our country back in a direction of the rule of law and one where God is included. We will shortly discuss our “last chance”.
The last few days were extremely stressful for all of us. The stress was so bad, many “snapped” yesterday morning as judged by the hate mail I received. Late Saturday I wrote that I believed devastating news would be released on Monday based on statements from Anonymous, Dotcom, and WikiLeaks. No news came out and as I said, people “snapped”. Let me say this and elaborate later in this article, I believe there is information (no doubt enough already public) that will be released that can put Hillary and many others in jail if pursued.
That said, THE MOST important aspect of yesterday’s vote pertains to the RULE OF LAW. I had tears in my eyes last night when it became obvious Mr. Trump would win. My biggest gripe over the last eight years has been that our country (leadership) had turned away from the Constitution, the rule of law and God. Bad times happen. But our current “bad times” were compounded by theft, fraud, etc. where no one was held accountable for their crimes. Our predicament seems to me as one of “purpose” rather than error. One can only hope Mr. Trump is sincere when he talks of “draining the swamp”!
Please do not misunderstand my meaning when I say “last chance”. Our last chance relates strictly to retaining a rule of law with leadership who actually WANTS what is right for America. We now have a chance to replace deceased (assassinated) Justice Scalia (now maybe an investigation can begin?) with someone who follows the Constitution strictly rather than someone who would prefer to re write it. We have several aging conservative justices who will now be able to retire and be replaced with patriotic Constitutionalists. It is also possible one or maybe even two “re writers” will need to be replaced. My point is this, the Constitution has been given an extension of life for 10, possibly 20 more years.
Now, it has been nearly 100 years since the nation has had a Republican President and Congress. Conversely, we had a Democrat President and Congress from 2009-2011 that ran rampant and began the move away from law and The Constitution. We had Obamacare shoved down our throats and innumerable executive orders. These ALL need to be repealed. There is no excuse whatsoever for this not to happen. If for any reason the unconstitutional acts are not repealed, I believe the public will revolt. Republicans were voted in with super majorities a few years back and they did nothing. We were betrayed, lied to and laughed at, this will not pass muster this time around. I assume we will have tremendous change toward fundamental rule of law and fairness, we will see.
So what does this mean for markets? I originally believed a Trump victory would lead to an instant collapse with the PPT backing away. I assumed a Hillary win would see the Chinese/Russians pull the plug on the dollar within weeks and probably a hot war. Seeing the action last night where the Dow/dollar/bonds were down huge and gold was up …only to be reversed, tells me something. I believe the election results were truly an unexpected shock to those currently in power. (They underestimated the anger on Main St.). It is my opinion they were not “ready” to collapse the market. Order was restored so that positions could be readied …and then let it go. I believe the “blame” will be placed directly on Mr. Trump and it will be said participants panicked because his policies are so bad. In other words, the mathematically assured collapse will come and will be “theater”, but not before the insiders have totally left the building AND locked the doors behind them with signs “your fault for voting Trump”.
The math is what it is and total collapse is mathematically in the cards. The good news this, at least we will be digging out from the rubble with the rule of law in place and a chief executive who actually wants to help and roots for his country rather than putting his boot on your neck to keep you down. Please understand this if nothing else, Obamacare and other policies were put in place as an anvil around our necks. “They” believed “we” the public, were too stupid to understand this. Yes, nearly half the country does not understand, but enough still do which at least gives us a chance to try and rebuild without both hands tied behind our backs.
To finish, I truly hope Mr. Trump appoints Rudy Guiliani as Attorney General and tells him to spend the entire first year indicting and jailing criminal traitors to the country …draining the swamp! I believe the very ugly information is out there in droves as proof available to convict those who have stolen, cheated, committed treason, murdered and even far humanly worse. If nothing else, this will give a huge boost in the American image for foreigners AND for “we the people”. I truly believe by the grace of God we have been given this final chance at doing the right things. What we do with this chance remains to be seen. No one can stop what is mathematically coming because no can change the past nor erase the debt and other financial obligations we have accumulated.
I do want to point out one thing, while you should certainly enjoy the day and jump for joy in patriotic fashion, DO NOT let your guard down! Much is yet to come and the enormous credit edifice will be unwound. It does not matter one wit who the president is when this happens because Mother Nature does not care. What matters is the aftermath. Rather than having leaders who would revel in our pain and actively aid in destroying our country, we now have someone who will offer a hand getting up.
I am certainly glad the election is over as I detested writing about it. No matter what my opinion, it offended someone. It had to be written about because we were on the verge of total loss of The Constitution, liberties and the American way of life. “Politics” also directly affect finance so it could not be ignored. (I so look forward to writing and speaking of the financial rather than the political). Don’t get this wrong, our lives will change and change dramatically but at least now we will not lose like the Chicago Black Sox did!
Weary but standing proudly as an American!
