Macroeconomic realities trump Trump fear
The outcome of the 2016 US presidential election has sent shockwaves through global financial markets. Gold largely reversed its 4% overnight rally and is now back to pre-election levels. This is evidence that gold prices are driven by macroeconomic realities rather than fear and greed. We believe that the election outcome changes little for the medium and long term path of the USD/Gold price as the real gold price divers remain strongly and asymmetrically skewed to the upside.
Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos has made an open offer to Girls actress Lena Dunham to pay her full, first class, one-way ticket to Canada now that Donald Trump is the president-elect.
Many liberal celebrities made promises during the election cycle to leave the country if Republican candidate Donald J. Trump was elected. Now that he is the president-elect, it seems as if many are backing out of their commitment. Comedian Amy Schumer has openly stated that she won’t be leaving the country via a lengthy Instagram post, featuring a previously debunked photo of Donald Trump.
The United States held a general election on Tuesday. Nobody won. Many will claim that Donald Trump won the election, as he is the person who gets to call himself “president” today. However, such a conclusion clearly flies in the face of the facts.
How did Donald Trump ever win the Republican nomination, in the first place? He won because the Establishment of the Republican Party had intentionally nominated a cast of lightweights, retreads, and utter incompetents. This was done in order to (supposedly) stack the deck in favor of one of those incompetents: Jeb Bush.
Yesterday, WikiLeaks released a new email that synthesizes why Hillary Clinton and the Democrats suffered such devastating losses in Tuesday’s election, losing states like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that should have been easy wins for the Democrats.
The email clarifies how Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman, John Podesta, had created an impossible conflict in how he was running Clinton’s campaign: he wanted it to serve the dual role of embellishing President Obama’s legacy, thus muzzling Clinton on criticizing the President’s policies. It should have been readily clear that this was a losing gamble as tens of thousands turned out at Senator Bernie Sanders’ primary rallies as he called for a “political revolution” against the establishment in Washington while Clinton attracted modest crowds with her stay the course mantra.
Now that the voters have wholly rejected the retarded, delusional leftist vision for America — which we might as well just call “liberal suicide” — the real character of the left is on full display. Today, angry liberals are turning to extreme violence and hatred, calling for the killing of Trump supporters, the assassination of Trump and the bloody beatings of all whites.
Yes, the racism, violence, bigotry and HATE of the left has finally come out of the closet.
I saw this coming, of course, long ago. If you’re a regular Natural News reader, you may recall my August 30th article entitled Chaos will erupt across America in less than 100 days… no matter who wins the election. Now, like clockwork, it’s all coming true exactly as I foresaw.
Stunned political analysts are missing the most plausible argument explaining Donald Trump’s unexpected victory. The misreading of the American electorate stems from the political class’ acceptance of mistaken (and increasingly insane) economic dogma that has arisen over the past generation. Based on their flawed understanding of economics, the pundits could simply not understand why the electorate had become totally disillusioned.
According to the ideas favored by economists on Wall Street, in government, and in the Federal Reserve, Americans should be enjoying a marginally good economy. Unemployment is low, home values and the stock markets are high, credit is cheap and plentiful, prices are stable, auto sales are robust, healthcare is available to all, and GDP is growing, albeit at levels that are below optimal. These are conditions that would normally favor the incumbent party, and would discourage voters from taking a chance on an unknown who has promised to tear down the entire system. But that is precisely what happened. There can only be two explanations: Either Trump supporters were motivated by hatred strong enough to cause them to vote against their own economic interests, or they understood the economic reality better than the Ph.D.’s. I believe the people got it right.
