America’s debt hit $20 trillion dollars

The uncertainty following the election of Donald Trump quickly dissipated when the economic forces of the market place decided that things were going to be okay. Upon his inauguration, the Dow quickly headed to 20,000, a momentous event; a record setter of no small consequence.

But, another mark was achieved that same day, America’s debt hit $20 trillion dollars. We face a long ignored problem that is soon going to shock everyone, we’re broke. The Dow rose because of Trump’s optimism, his flair for getting things done and his ability to ignore the ‘nay sayer’ pundents (the swamp dwellers) who have called the shots for decades. While politically, Trump is indeed a novice, managerially he’s a master and he surrounds himself with people who have the answers if he don’t. He exudes optimism!

But Trump can’t make silk out of a sows ear. Pretty soon we’ll run out of sow’s. Let’s examine our position a little closer. Since Trumps inauguration, the Congress, now hesitant, but giddy with power, raised the debt ceiling…again. Have we read about that yet? Has it been discussed on Fox News? No, not yet, because the root of our economic problems is that neither the Congress nor the President are in charge of our money, a private bank, The Federal Reserve is, and it’s controlled by the One World Order crowd who call the shots. They are the plug that would, if pulled, completely drain the swamp. Wars have been fought over less.

The Federal Reserve dispensed loads of easy money on investors (Banks) for over a decade at nearly zero interest rates. At the the end of Obama’s term, the Fed said it was going to rethink its position on those low interest rates. It hasn’t happened yet because an interest rate rise, (a correction) would generated some serious and painful world wide economic difficulties because the Fed today has been politicized and its goal is a fading attempt for One World Government.

Whatever happened to the campaign demands by some presidential hopefuls to audit the Fed? Nothing! Something is about to break and it is the rise in interest rates. If not carefully handled, it will cause havoc and Trump, along with conservatism and populism, will get blamed.

Legislation to “End the Fed” and “Audit the Fed” lies dormant in committee. Central banks, still private entities, removed from government control and public scrutiny, pursue their own economic policies. Does this mean that Trump’s efforts to reinvigorate our economy could be frustrated by the hand of Central Banks manipulation? Possibility! The Banks control the Fed, always have. They distrust any political populism that would change the status quo, that of maintaining a tight grip on the world’s economic policies that they control.

American prosperity can only occur after the Federal Reserve is eliminated. They have no money, or rather, we have no money. We do have printed paper called Federal Reserve Bank Notes, and as long as we can trust ‘em, they’ll serve our needs for every day living. But, they are just paper, fiat money without value. The big banks monopoly to hold that money (paper). It gives them power far beyond any of Donald Trumps ability to stop it. In his campaign, when the Fed issue was raised by Sen. Rand Paul, Trump agreed that Fed should be audited. Well…?

We’ll see economic improvement for awhile, but the collapse is coming. It’s as inevitable as is Elm blight in January. We don’t have any money, just blind faith in green paper. How’s that old saying go. “Hold your Confederate Money boy’s, the South will rise again.” Just change a couple of words and that’s where we will soon be.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘’em!
