Wall Street Begins Extending Elbows As Vulgarians Close In…

I’m re-posting a portion of an earlier article below because something is beginning that will have long-term consequences.  Always try to pay attention to the “bigger picture” as we travel amid the daily events.

George SorosRupert Murdoch

Amid the ozone layer of political consequence the Billionaire class of Rupert Murdoch, George Soros, and yes Charles Koch operate on (and invest in) issues that pertain to their interests.  They may not carry the same beliefs on down-stream issues; but in their own financial neighborhoods they are globalists first and foremost.  This is why we identify them collectively as the Wall Street Class.

In the most direct and consequential sense, free flowing immigration, amnesty, and open borders play into their goals and objectives.  They are diametrically opposed to -and afraid of- nationalism.  The Koch Brothers are open-border advocates.

In many very deliberate ways the 2016 Presidential Election is morphing into a battle between the globalists (wall street etc., corporate media, democrats, Hillary Clinton and GOPe republicans Jeb Bush) and the nationalists represented by Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and the largest section of the U.S. electorate.

This decision by Fox News (via Megyn Kelly) is part of the larger maneuver to advance Marco Rubio as the vulgarian alternative.  ie. Wall Street’s “fail safe”.

Two current candidates represent a risk to the power-brokers who financially attempt to control the outcomes of presidential elections. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are nationalists and antithetical to the larger goals and agenda of a modern Wall Street filled with globalists and global market investors.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both are fully and comprehensively understanding of the root of the problem and what has undermined the essential cornerstone of our Republic. The difference between them does not lie in a divergent view of the problem; the differences between them lies squarely in the approach to the solution.

Above all of the inherent issues of the day, and well above all of the consequences to policy agenda’s, and even beyond the ideological differences in politics, there is a group of global financial interests that are generally unaffected by the policies being debated.

Politicians love to discuss the issues that are downstream. Issues like: social benefits, social issues, guns, abortion, race-issues, small-ball tax adjustments, education, marijuana, etc. All of these issues are essentially ‘shiny things’, well downstream from the larger more substantive issues which influence generations.

This is where republican supporters for Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or other similar candidates of like-minded sense and sensibility, don’t fully understand the scope of Wall Street and the entirely different principle of Main Street.

♦ Rupert Murdoch is one of the entities who operate in the air of Wall Street; he’s actually one of the more easily identifiable people who operate in this globalist space, the global financial market. Murdoch and those of similar consequence are focused on issues that are far beyond the issues of Main Street USA and champion Donald Trump.

Modern day Wall Street is the global financial market. Any national business-minded broadcast, cue up Fox Business News, is also focused on the global financial market, not Main Street.

Your local Chamber of Commerce organization in your community is focused on Main Street issues. However, when we are discussing the U.S. (National) Chamber of Commerce, we switch from discussing Main Street to discussing Wall Street or global financial markets.

Because Wall Street is focused on global financial markets, and specifically because the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is focused on global financial markets, you can see the inherent disconnect from those who operate on Wall Street level, and those who operate domestically on Main Street issues.

Likewise the problems we face as a nation cannot be solved at a Main Street level, and we must fully understand that Main Street is down stream from Wall Street.

If we want to impact serious economic changes (both Trump and Sanders do) then we must travel to the source of the issue, Wall Street and/or the global financial markets. Those are the players above the policies being debated in the U.S. presidential election.

The intersection between the global financial markets (Wall Street) and U.S. politics surfaces when policy topics like the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal are being determined. Trade and U.S. banking policy (Treasury) are aspects where Wall Street gets interested and consequentially involved.

Knowing that Murdoch, (Fox News, and Fox Business News) and those of similar air and influence, have a vested interest in Wall Street issues – you begin to understand this:

Candidate Jeb Bush attends Chamber of Commerce dinner with Fox's Rupert Murdoch and Valerie Jarrett (December 2014)

Candidate Jeb Bush attends Chamber of Commerce dinner with Fox’s Rupert Murdoch and Valerie Jarrett (December 2014)

Those who operate in this global finance world have a vested interest in controlling only those aspects that have influence on their business interests. They don’t necessarily care about Main Street consequences from the expression of those interests; therefore they don’t engage in policy issues of what’s going on down-stream. They simply don’t care; they only care about their consequential space – and retention of their larger financial interests.

♦ Both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders understand the global policies have detrimental impacts on Main Street. Where they differ is in how to control those impacts.

Sanders believes the government should control what is going on in the stratosphere inhabited by the global financial markets – Socalism. However, it’s an impossible task to try and use government intervention to force compliance on capital. See Venezuela as a current example in economic collapse.

Trump believes the government should allow the global markets to use capital as they desire; however, national government can act as a dam blocking down stream consequences, and walling off any economic damage by controlling how much influence those global markets (ie. Wall Street) have over Main Street. Fair Markets and “fair trade”, not “free trade”, through national control of economic pressure valves.

In essence Trump’s position is: we are the customer, the market can provide any product they want, but in order to be successful they have to provide the products we want, at a price our markets can sustain, or they lose. Capitalism and “fair markets” with clear nationalist best interests.

Unlike Donald Trump, Sanders position is to tell the production class what to produce, how to produce it, who gets it when it is produced (economic justice). Unlike Trump Sanders has never produced anything – he has no concept of creating a pie, he can only divide a pie already created. Sanders also goes a step further, much like Hugo Chavez, by saying how much the producer will be paid for the product. (Socialism is an exhausting economic model)

♦ In order to avoid the political consequences of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, Wall Street (global financial markets) wants Jeb Bush and/or Hillary Clinton.

When you understand this basic principle all of the various actions taken by the Wall Street funded media (eg. polling) begin to make more sense.

This tenet is also why Fox News (Murdoch) is trying earnestly to eliminate Donald Trump – the principle(s) behind the corporate media outlet(s) have a vested interest in his failure. Those same principle(s) also have a vested interest in eliminating Bernie Sanders for essentially the same reason.

♦ Beyond the corporate media like Fox, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS et al, we also have smaller, but in many cases not less impactful, media who also have a vested financial interest. Business models within various web-based media like Salem Media Group as an example.

This is why Donald Trump’s candidacy allows us to discover who the vested interests are.

We only need to watch how various “conservatives” change positions in order to attack the very platforms they previously espoused to hold (ie. immigration). In essence they are exposing their financial interests, their own business model, which is dependent on their maintenance by larger corporate financial influences.

None of the aforementioned corporate media entities would support a candidate willing to turn over the applecart of Wall Street to whom they are connected. Also none of the aforementioned would support a candidate who would eliminate, control or impact the source of substantive issues like the national debt, deficits, fiscal policies or international trade deals. Ergo all of the aforementioned support less consequential presidential candidates who are palatable for a purpose.

While all of the other candidates nibble around the edges they are careful to avoid directly hitting the target of the larger problems. There are only two candidates who are clear-eyed on the real source of what ails the U.S. system:

Bernie Sanders In WisconsinTrump rally texas

Left (Sanders rally) ~ Right (Trump rally)

0_62_061208_bernie_sanderstrump general

This is why both Sanders and Trump are necessarily isolated, ridiculed and marginalized. However, this is also why the larger support base under each of these candidates is much more heavily engaged in the exponentially BIGGER policy issues which have real and long-term consequences.

Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are focused on the root causes. All other candidates are willfully blind to what’s going on ‘upstream’ and willing to argue about the ‘downstream’ consequences (gun control, abortion rights, gay marriage etc.).

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders represent risk to the Rupert Murdoch’s of the world and to Wall Street. No other candidates represent the same risk.

Ideally, the ultimate match-up would be Sanders and his democratic-socialist model, vs Trump and his unapologetic nationalist-capitalism model. However, this would represent a lose/lose to the global finance community of modern Wall Street, and thus must be avoided at all costs.

Wall Street wants this outcome:

clinton bush

This outcome has been the plan since October of 2013. Producing this exact outcome was additionally affirmed during the primary races within the mid-terms of 2014. The production of this outcome, and the protection of the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal was specifically why Mitch McConnell was given a financial open-checkbook in the 2014 mid-terms.

The people who operate in the stratosphere we are describing are long-term financial interests willing to spend massive amounts of money for desired long-term outcomes. Nothing is left to chance, and all possible outcomes must be covered within the plans – with built in contingencies (Rubio / Biden) to insure objectives are reached.

*NOTE* The Trans-Pacific Trade Deal legislative passage alone holds trillions of dollars in consequences. Hillary’s flip-flop position on the TPT indicates the Senate will take up the issue after the primary race (April/May ’16) and before the lead in to the general election (Sept/Oct ’16) – Wherein all political blow back can be avoided. This timing allows Hillary safe passage because the explosive issue will (hopefully according to McConnell) be resolved prior to it becoming an issue in the presidential election.

    Murdoch and Soros paths may meander separately, but finally converge at the same goal–global financial control with ultimately just a few powerful people at the top. No doubt some supporting players don’t even know they are pawns in this game. In my opinion, Clintons, Obama (post presidency) and many others are attempting to position themselves to share in the golden goose of global “climate calamity” politics, thus reaping both power and riches in the end. No more national identities.

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:

    I would add one thing here and that for Trumps view to prevail, which is what we want, we also have to have jobs that pay enough for us to buy what we want. That means free trade must allow for the exchange rates to float and sovereign debt can not be held by non residents. In Sanders view the supply of good must be reduced to the level of wages available to the citizens of the world e.g. universal wages which means all labor is paid the same. Without this sovereign debt must increase as supplying country’s refuse to buy American good and buy T-Bills instead. This is an out of control positive feed back system which is exactly what we have right now. This kind of system has destroyed every country that used it and we have very little time left to stop this from destroying us. In my opinion Trump is the only one that can stop the destruction of the country! He has to as if we go down he goes down with us is motivation is in line was ours.

    That SOROS picture is absolutely spot on. He is evil.

    Also people forget, that he was the person who brought down the British Pound in the 90’s, caused huge spikes in British interest rates, forced Britain out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM), which all lead to the collapse of the British Conservative Government, which then lead to the arrival of Tony Blair and Labour (a guy that pretended to be a Moderate) which resulted in more socialism, with a leader that talked about the struggling middle class etc.

    Last part should sound familar – Obama used the same con trick, pretended to be moderate, talked about the struggling middle class, but then introduce socialism and far left progressive policies.

    Both Labour in Britain and Democrats in USA supported an open borders policy, with massive increases in immigration.

    Both also had something else in common – backed by SOROS.

With the trade on since November, Soros Fund Management made a reported $1 billion profit to open a year in which he personally earned an estimated $4 billion, landing him atop our list of highest earning hedge fund managers.

We had a talk from one of the Dutch executives about market challenges and he went off script a bit and expounded on the problem with Chinese economic planning. They have one guy that is told to produce all of a product possible and keep producing and another that is told to sell all of it. No foresight to demand, just keep pumping it out. The Chinese are doubling global production of our product (Nylon monomer) with new Chinese plants coming online in the next year just as demand is dropping, and it has been flat for almost a decade.

      China still makes planning decisions from the standpoint of a demand economy, which is what this example represents. In a free market system this would be instantly recognized as an internal contradiction and promptly dealt with. This is exactly the kind of thing that a guy like Trump understands better than anybody. It’s what he keeps talking about in his stump speeches. China can do this because it is using our money to support both its excesses and exploitations. It can do this because it doesn’t have to compete on a level playing field in international trade. Trump’s main point is that we, the US and other industrial countries, have allowed this to happen.

          I’ve thought about that too. One of the weaknesses of demand economic planning is that it is inherently inflexible when compared to entrepreneural capitalism. Demand economies can spend huge sums trying to capture a given industry only to find that more adaptive new technologies have emerged which undercut it’s efforts. The one thing those economies can’t control is other people’s innovative efforts. China is in a constant state of playing catch-up with quicker responding western economies which continue to produce the world’s new inventions. It seeks to compensate for the lag with industrial spying but this just means that it can’t really keep pace, anticipate, and almost never truly innovate. That’s what Trump is talking abut when he talks about “fair trade” instead of “free trade”. Trump knows that denying easy access to the gigantic US marketplace would be a financial disaster for China. That’s why he keeps talking about it. GO TRUMP!!

UN “peacekeepers” put sewage in Haitian lakes or rivers which caused massive outbreak of cholera and deaths. Money has been allocated for clean water projects around the world but the money usually ends up in crony bank accounts. Israel is an exception. It’s had desalination facilities since 1973.

      CBS had Luntz the Duntz on either this am or yesterday about Trump’s supporters. He point blank told them it doesn’t matter what Trump does or says at this point. At least 80% of his support will not go to anyone else. Period. IOW, sorry folks. It’s all over. He also noted Carson’s support wasn’t solid at all. I think they’ve hesitated taking him out, because they rightly fear too many would shift to Trump. Which I suspect will be a natural progression anyway.

      there’s another relevant aspect to Trump…
      he is not a member of the CFR.
      imo, that makes him truly “independent”.
      CFR = foreign policy.
      and not in a good way.
      if you look at the history of CFR presidents…and their administrations…and the GOPe..
      its startling.

    Most Republicans view the issues raised in the article as trifling and insignificant, akin to arguing about seating arrangements at the dinner table while the house is burning down. There is ONLY ONE issue. That is the unchecked invasion of foreigners across our southern border. Bush and all the other RINOs are promoting open borders and amnesty they should check with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor about endorsing amnesty. Neither Jeb Actoflove Bush or Marco Gangofeight Rubio is going to win a single election and unless the polls are rigged neither on will ever get out of single digits.

      The invasion is also coming in by airplanes also. Those are ‘refugees’. I’m beginning to think Amerikans are getting a little fed up with their communities being destroyed by third world people.
      Read an article today that governor of Minnesota said to people complaining about Somalis, “If you don’t like it, get out – leave.” – paraphrased but essence was ‘tough nuggies’

      Yet immigration is significantly lower on voters concern list than economy. I’d like Trump to very clearly explain to the public who hasn’t caught on that immigration, trade, regulatory reversal, and putting unconstitutional agencies out of biz ALL are the key factors in revamping the economy and Making America Great Again.

        Immigration and jobs go hand in hand. In order for the ruling class to dominate they must constantly bring in a new lower class to fill the shoes of the rising middle class. This creates a problem for the ruling class. There is only so much room at the top so the upper class eliminates the middle class before they themselves are eliminated. A brief look at history shows that this is done by: 1) removing religion 2) destroying the family unit, 3) confiscating weapons, and 4) taking personal property. Ever hear about a banker giving the farm back to the farmer?

        The longer the ruling class can keep these topics separate the easier it is for them to divide and conquer.

    These globalists are parasites that have been feeding off of America so long that they have made her anemic. If left unchecked they will kill her. Bring on the exterminator, bring on Trump. We are I dire straights and Trump is the ONLY answer for this point in time for our beloved America. These parasites don’t care about the middle class or massive loss in American jobs. They only care about wealth and power for themselves.

        Somebody- actually a whole tsunami of somebodies, need to start raising billy hell LOUDLY & NOW about fixing our broken election system. And it is soooo broken.

        2012 was swept completely under the rug in spite of glaring overvotes & undervotes. There wasn’t so much as a peep.

        Ask our servicemen & women overseas about voting absentee and how many times have we read about ”boxes of ballots” found in a back room or in someone’s trunk? I fully expect 2016 to rival 2000 in the sheer magnitude of Bee Ess that comes out of it.

        This is disgraceful. Not that our Congressmen have any shame (They don’t.), but they can only get away with as much as we let them get away with. There isn’t a minute to lose.

      I understand Bernie and Ben are outsiders……but he doesn’t get as much flack and tempest from the lamestream media as opposed to K-Street as does Donald Trump. I much gather Bernie’s crowds in the stadiums have been cloned in, and that Ben Carson demands assist from God in his prayer to dump wealth on him for campaigning but it appears God returns his egotistical lamentations with slippage of the tongue – which reveal Ben to not be a good leader for the country. Either that, or Ben doesn’t really give much ado to the candidacy of president and responds with sloppy answers about sending dangerous thieves to raid young cashiers while the much finer surgeon deems his own life much more important.

    Mike Huckabee is not the right person at this time;
    however, he does have a clue about Wall Street.

    excerpt from link:

    The financial crash a year later, he added, vindicated his judgment and gave the elitists a taste of the hardship that had already been felt in what he calls “Bubbaville.” With a touch of anger, he echoes the regret recently expressed by former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that no Wall Street executives went to jail for misdeeds that contributed to the crisis.
    “Absolutely they should have,” he said. “These were the smartest people in the room. These were the people that were supposed to be the geniuses. These were all Ivy Leaguers, and they knew darn well what they were doing — shuffling paper around and getting paid ridiculous sums of money.
    “They didn’t produce things. They didn’t make or manufacture. They weren’t making an iPhone. They were betting on what an iPhone might be worth in a few years, and selling it off. It was a casino. And I got in trouble for saying that very thing eight years ago. I’d like to say, ‘I was right.'”
    Huckabee grew impassioned as he spoke in the name of the middle- and working-class voters who suffered in the crash and Great Recession.
    “If the same kind of shell game had been practiced on the street, do you think the cops in the bunco division wouldn’t have gone down and busted ’em?” he said. “Does anybody ever accept responsibility for the fact that 60,000 manufacturing plants have closed in this country, 5 million manufacturing jobs have disappeared since the year 2000? Every day I meet people … who are today working two and three part-time jobs, and make less money than they used to make when they had one full-time job that paid ’em benefits and had a pension.”
    And he was blunt-spoken about why he believes that government hasn’t gotten tough with those responsible.
    “Money, politics — that’s what I say,” he explained. “Washington is like a strip club. You got people tossing dollars, and people doing the dance. But while the Washington-Wall Street strip club’s going on, you got people out there in the middle of the country and all over America who are losing their homes, losing their jobs and wondering: ‘How the heck doesn’t somebody stand up and do something about it?'”

      One thing I say is

      “Trump’s a wrecking ball. And there’s some stuff what needs wrecked right now in America.” Political correctness, for one.

      Which might appeal to anyone with an anti-establishment streak (common in the young).

      The other is

      “Yeah, he’s a bit of a buffoon. But maybe America needs a bit of a buffoon at this point in history. He says some things in a way that might seem cartoonish at first – but dig deeper into the content. And at least he’s straightforward. Contrast that with the political double-speak you’re used to.”

      Or cut right to the chase:

      “If we don’t shut down illegal immigration, as Trump says, YOU’RE going to end up paying for them. Possibly to the point where you won’t be able to afford to support your own family and raise your own children with the benefits you’d like to give them from your honest labor.”

      Then direct them to Robert Rector’s study that shows that each low-education, low-earning illegal immigrant will cost the taxpayers $600,000 NET NEGATIVE over their lifetime, on average.

      1) He’s the only candidate on either side not bought and paid for by big donors (we are his donors and he is self-funded – and he’s only spent 3-4 million so far because of all the free air time he gets)
      2) I don’t know about you, but I want to get rich (Trump will jump start the economy by getting rid of the illegals who are dragging us down, lower taxes, bring back the wealth sitting overseas, unleash the wealth now lying dormant because of the shi**y regulatory and confiscatory environment, etc, etc. These changes will ONLY happen under a Trump WH.)
      3) He’s not Wall Street, he’s Main Street; (the proof is all the big guns are targeting him)

      Here is how I see a Trump presidency:
      Work hard
      Get rich
      Have fun
      Teach your kids to love America

      And if you don’t succeed in convincing your colleagues, just remember you can’t change somebody’s mind unless they are open to it. Besides, as the election draws closer they will be paying closer attention to the excitement that a Trump presidency will generate. My guess is most of them will come around.
