It is difficult to maximize success as an Investor (or to adequately understand or participate effectively in Politics) without making a clear distinction between Nationalists /Internationalists on one hand and Globalists on the other.
Conscious Globalists’ (as opposed to the unthinking or indoctrinated/conditioned Masses who carelessly use the term) policies have caused and are causing tremendous losses, pain and suffering in the world.
Consider the Citizens of European Countries, for example, who are suffering from a wave of terrorist attacks, gang rape and other crimes because of the Globalist’s erasure of Borders.
One thinks also of the private for-profit Fed-led Globalist Mega-Bank Cartel (Note 3) which has for years, and continues to keep interest rates artificially low thus reducing the income of savers and retirees, and defeating Honest market price discovery.
That Cartel also continues to suppress prices in the Gold and Silver Market, thus not only defeating honest price discovery, but also damaging those Precious Metals Sector businesses and job prospects of those who work in those businesses.
This has been convincingly documented by gata.org, and otherwise demonstrated, e.g., by recent Discovery in the Deutsche Bank case which revealed that Globalist Mega-Bank’s participation in manipulation of the Precious Metals Market.
Clearly the Globalist Precious Metals Price Suppression Cartel’s motive is to discourage Investors from owning Real Money, i.e., Gold and Silver and forcing Investors to continue to support/trade in their Fiat Currencies and Treasury Securities. Of course, printing / digitizing even more Fiat Currency robs it of purchasing power and confiscates “literally” the Wealth which went into it in the first place.
For example, consider that 97% of the purchasing power of the U.S. Dollar has been inflated away since the 1913 founding of the private for-profit Fed, with the wealth having thus been transferred to the Mega-Bankers, thus further injuring Savers and Retirees and Investors and Citizens in general.
But the Negative Effects of Globalists’ Wealth Acquisition Racket extend far beyond suppressing the Prices of the Precious Metals Market and profiting from the Fiat Currency Manufacturing Game.
How often have we been told that since we live in an (ostensibly) Globalized World, that Regional (or World) Government is the Wave of the Future and we should embrace it via the European Union or proposed North American Union?
Tell that to unemployed Americans or European Workers whose jobs have been outsourced to China or India to further line the pockets of “Global” business. It is not just Workers in “Developed” countries who have been hurt.
The Globalists are in Principle Against National Borders because Reginal Entities (like the EU) or Global ones like the IMF and World Bank facilitate their maintaining/increasing their Domination through their Mega Banks and their control of Mainstream Media. It is difficult, and often impossible, for the citizens of one country to resist the Decisions of a Cartel with its tentacles in many countries. This phenomenon of Globalist control without formalized (by Borders) Territory, has led to the Globalists being correctly characterized as The Deep State.
This Globalist Deep State has facilitated Catastrophes for many in Europe whose Countries have been/are being overrun by the Mass Immigration of people from Alien Cultures (Radical Islamic Terrorists) and Hostile Ideologies (ISIS).
Borders are very important. They protect the Cultures and Religions and Personal Safety of the Inhabitants of the Countries they define.
And not incidentally, they empower their Citizens, including Citizen-Investors, to, potentially, prevent their being economically exploited or otherwise injured.
Fortunately, increasingly, citizens are exercising their power to resist the Globalist Cartel as the citizens of the U.K. have done with Brexit, and the citizens of the U.S. have done with the election of Donald Trump as President.
Further consider the Case of the USA’s new President Trump. As a Nationalist/Internationalist, he is despised by the Globalists, especially by those who control the Mainstream Media. Thus it is no surprise that (whatever you think of him or his policies) he and his policies are repeatedly undermined by these Globalist MSM’s Distortions and Attacks.
Unfortunately, this Globalist Deep State has many “Globalist Cards” which they have yet to play against President Trump and the Brexit voters of the U.K.
Consider that as a Nationalist and Internationalist, Trump is not one of them and is not controlled by them. Thus, from the Globalist’s perspective, they have every reason to keep him from succeeding so they can regain power.
One Strategy which is in their power and, unfortunately, they are likely to use is facilitating a Stock Market Collapse in the next few months. They can then use the consequent Chaos as a pretext to regain Global Domination.
Here is how that Scenario is likely to play out. Consider that the Globalist Mainstream Media continue to spin out the false Narrative that the Economy is recovering, a Narrative demonstrably false as Shadowstats (see Note 1) and others have shown.
Through its Control of the MSM, the Globalist Deep State promulgates False Narratives about many subjects including the Economy and the alleged benefits of Mass Immigration. In the US, for example, the BLS puts out Bogus Economic Numbers. The Real Numbers are in the Chart below from Shadowstats.
And the reason they continue to spew out this nonsense is succinctly captured by Mr. Brendan Smith.
“The false recovery Narrative will indeed die in 2017 and it will be because the Globalists WANT it to die when The Nationalists are at the helm. This is perhaps the biggest con game in recent history with conservatives as the fall guy and the rest of the public as the gullible mark. One can only hope that we can educate enough people on this scenario to make a difference before it is too late.”
“The False Economic Recovery Narrative Will Die in 2017,”
Brandon Smith, Alt-Market.com, January 2017
Regarding profiting and protecting from this eventuality in the run-up to the 2008 Crash (caused mainly by failed Globalist policies), Deepcaster (who closely observes, as far as possible) the activities including ongoing Market Interventions of the Globalist Cartel, recommended its subscribers buy five leveraged short funds, all of which were subsequently liquidated profitably.
Deepcaster’s monitoring of Cartel Activities continues to facilitate recommending profitable positions (Note 2–Recent Profits Taken) and Deepcaster is beginning to recommend positions to Profit and Protect from the aforementioned anticipated Multi-Sector (but not all Sectors!) Takedown Event.
And to make matters worse, closely aligned with and, in some cases, actually complicit with the Globalist Deep State are the Cultural Marxists which dominate much of the Political/Economic Discourse through their Domination of the Mainstream Media. The Cultural Marxists push Globalism, Statism, Political Correctness, Multi-Culturalism (all the better to play one group off against another) and Mass Immigration for Cheap Labor and to advance Multi-culturalism and weaken National Cohesion.
Thus the Interest of the far-left Marxist Radicals and Neo-Con Globalist Right are often aligned! And thus, it is no surprise they both oppose President Donald Trump.
It is therefore essential for Citizen-Investors, and indeed all Citizens, to fully understand who the Cultural Marxists are, and how to Combat them. In order to do that, see the February 2010, September 2016 and December 2016, postings at the non-profit carryingcapacity.org.
Yes, indeed, it is thus no surprise that President Trump is opposed by both the Cultural Marxist Leftist Radicals as well as by the Globalist Right.
And another negative manifestation of Globalism is the ideology of the Neo Conservatives who have strongly advocated and continue to advocate U.S. military intervention in far flung corners of the world. [Consider the National Review’s “Against Trump” issue and the Weekly Standards intense opposition to his candidacy.] “Policing the World” is a de facto Globalist Ideology, as opposed to the Nationalist one of Intervening only when it is in the interest of National Defense.
Even worse, many Globalist leaders successfully employ the Indoctrination/Conditioning Techniques of (and/or are in league) with the Globalist Cultural Marxists. The most obvious of these Indoctrination/Conditioning Techniques is Political Correctness which when successfully inculcated Mandates Certain Outcomes and Forbids Discussion of others. George Orwell (RIP) would immediately recognize that “1984” has come to the 21st Century.
To return the focus to the Economy and Investing, we expect an increasing number of Roadblocks will be thrown in President Trump’s way courtesy of The Globalists with multiple Crises the Consequence—a Great Shocker indeed.
In conclusion, we agree with Shadowstats.
“…Given Issues of Fed Independence and Ingrained, Systemic Intransigence, Early Resolutions of the Fed and Solvency Problems are not Likely.
“Accordingly, Massive U.S. Dollar Selling, Debasement and Hyperinflation remain the Primary risks to Domestic Economic and Political Stability;…
“SPECIAL COMMENTARY, YEAR-END, YEAR-AHEAD Economic and Financial Review and Preview,” Shadowstats.com, 01/08/2017
“…The greatest crisis at hand remains risk of systemic collapse. In order to prevent a massive sell-off in the U.S. dollar and the onset of nascent hyperinflation, the new Administration has to resolve two massive and increasingly intractable problems. First is the long-range, sovereign-solvency issue of the United States. Second is the impotence of the Federal Reserve, which still is fighting the battle it lost in 2008: to restore normal solvency and functioning to the domestic banking system. Prospects for successes there remain bleak, given institutional intransigence that could take until after the 2018 congressional election to resolve, combined with the established political independence of the Fed. The system, however, likely does not have much more than six months in which to be brought under perceived control, let alone a couple of years. Yet, there always is potential for positive surprise with a creative, new Administration.” [emphasis added]
“Economic and Financial Review and Preview,” Commentary No. 858,
And we would only add that “the” risk of Systems Collapse, “a massive sell-off of the U.S. Dollar… and nascent hyperinflation” are all a result of self-serving Globalist Policies. The next time you hear someone say we live in a Global economy or Globalized world, loudly object “Not if I can help it!” and actively oppose it in all its manifestations, or you will be giving away far too much freedom and wealth at the outset.

*Past Profitable Performance is no assurance of future Profitable Performance.
Note 3: * We encourage those who doubt the scope and power of Overt and Covert Interventions by a Fed-led Cartel of Key Central Bankers and Favored Financial Institutions to read Deepcaster’s February, 2016 Letter entitled "Profit, Protection, Despite Cartel Intervention" in the ‘Latest Letter’ Cache at www.deepcaster.com. Also consider the substantial evidence collected by the Gold AntiTrust Action Committee at www.gata.org, including testimony before the CFTC, for information on precious metals price manipulation, and manipulation in other Markets. Virtually all of the evidence for Intervention has been gleaned from publicly available records. Deepcaster’s profitable recommendations displayed at www.deepcaster.com have been facilitated by attention to these “Interventionals.” Attention to The Interventionals facilitated Deepcaster’s recommending five short positions prior to the Fall, 2008 Market Crash all of which were subsequently liquidated profitably.
