Will Voters Elect The "Dutch Trump" Tomorrow?

Tomorrow, a vote in the Netherlands could push the euro and the EU one step closer to death

For the last several months, I’ve been warning readers about a populist tsunami washing through Europe. It’s drastically changing the Continent’s political landscape in a way not seen since before World War 2.

This wave is flushing away traditional “mainstream” parties. And it’s bringing in anti-establishment populists who want to leave the euro currency and the European Union.

It’s already hit the UK in the form of Brexit, killing David Cameron’s pro-EU government in the process.

Then it struck Italy, washing away pro-EU Matteo Renzi’s government.

Tomorrow, on March 15, the populist wave is set to hit the Netherlands.

That’s when Dutch voters go to the polls. I think the anti-EU populist Party for Freedom will win. It’s led by Geert Wilders, who was close to Trump’s campaign. Some even call him the “Dutch Trump.”

Leaving the euro is a top priority for the Party for Freedom. If it wins, it would be another nail in the coffin for the European currency.

Either way, the Dutch parliament will discuss how to leave the Eurozone shortly after the March 15 election.

A top lawmaker recently said that “the probe will examine whether it would be possible for the Dutch to withdraw from the single currency, and if so how,” Reuters reported.

The euro’s problems are compounding and could get much worse, very soon.

Some of Europe’s biggest countries have elections this year:

  • France (April 23)

  • Germany (September 24)

These elections will ultimately determine the fate of the European Union.

The Brexit vote, Donald Trump’s election, and the failure of Italy’s constitutional referendum have already boosted anti-euro populist parties in these countries. If the Party for Freedom wins in the Netherlands tomorrow, they’ll get another leg up.

Populist parties have a real chance to win in both France and Germany. But even if they win in just one, the EU would likely unravel.

The biggest issue in these elections is the migrant crisis, which we’ve covered here extensively. And the crisis is only accelerating.

Every single migrant that arrives in Europe increases the chance that anti-EU populists will win a key election. That’s not good news for the EU or the euro. It’s also not good news for the US.

Whatever happens in the EU—the world’s largest economy and a major US trading partner—matters. If the euro collapses, expect it to trigger a stock market collapse in the US.

The Financial Times recently put it this way:

It would probably lead to the most violent economic shock in history, dwarfing the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 and the 1929 Wall Street crash.

If the FT is even partially right, it means we’re looking at a possible stock market crash of historic proportions. It could devastate anyone with a brokerage account. But it could also create enormous opportunities to profit.

I am going to guess that Europeans (in general) are not fed up enough yet.  In Hungary, yes, OK.  But in the wimpier parts of W Europe?  My guess is no.

Two more years perhaps of Muslims abusing Europeans.......

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Fingers crossed, are the Dutch smart enough not to fall for the false flag Turkish argument, specifically designed to deflect votes away from Wilders

sinbad2's picture

WHAT, the Turkish thing will have boosted Wilders vote.

TeaClipper's picture

Pay attention, votes are going to the center right ruling party because Dutch voters are falling for their tough talking bullshit on turkey, all manufactured to take votes from wilders

Singelguy's picture

I believe it will have the opposite effect. Rutte's "tough action" and the reaction of Turks lving in the Netherlands exposed how divided the country is and demonstrated that the muslim turks are more loyal to Erdogan than the country they live in, proving Wilder's claims. A recent poll showed that 70% of the dutch people are very concerned about the lack of integration of the islamic foreigners and 45% believe that it is too far gone to reverse. Based on all of this, I think the polls will be proven to be ridiculous just as they were in Brexit and the US presidential elections and Wilders will win big and other right wing parties such as the FvD (Forum for Democracy) will do much better than expected.

The market collapses when there is an alternative to the USD as the reserve currency; nothing changes until that is in place, which is a possibility.

Err, no.

The Dutch system is proportional representation, real democracy.

aardvarkk's picture

The Dutch are welcome to keep their democracy too.  I just want our republic back like it was and I will be happy.  Well...happyISH.

Democracy: Two muslims and Van Gogh voting on whose head gets chopped off.

GreatUncle's picture

Proportional representation ... how it works for the globalists ... rather interesting.

Take multiple parties go on lets say 5, you buy one party meaning chances are you only need to bribe around 20% of the population to win. Then you need to form a government, so you buy 2-3 of the main leaders of other parties to control policies.

It is no more representative of democracy than any other one when the globalists control the FIAT money creation they just buy it so in effect when the world came off the gold standard in the 70's democracy died then. All you have seen since then is fraudulent money creation and the called sovereign debt making it payable by the population.

Nope, is no democracy and will not be again until FIAT dies.

SOCIALISM experiment is a DISASTER, the foundation of ideology is based on ELITIST(Political Technocrats,Central Bankers,Cabals,Feudals,World Trade Organization,International Monetary Fund,NeoCONS,Military Industrial Complex..et.al) deciding what is GOOD FOR THE REST OF THE SHEEPLES,FARMERS,CREATORS,INVENTORS,FREE THINKERS,PROFIT GENERATORS,WEALTH CREATORS. These ELITIST are basically the LEECHES , who suck the blood out of the rest. When you have these CZARs sitting in BRUSSELS, with their multi-million dollar salaries,perks etc just passing DECREES, without the WILL OF THE EUROPEAN PEOPLE, the HOUSE of CARDS is bound to collapse.

The driving force for these ELITIST is to use and create a web of DEBT ,FEAR and Bureaucracy -as a tool to snatch away the mind and soul of a FREE THINKING JUNTA.

you're deliberatly confusing Corporitism with Socialism/Communism because you're obvious just another 'bot whose job is to post idiotic comments against the left.

Enjoy your 30 silver pennies.

Trump wave going Europe!

Well, they both have big hair.

Sorry to break the american dream of being first in everything.

This is not just a Trump wave.

Its Wilders wave, a Le Pen wave ect ect.

Wilders has been trying for government way long then Trump did.

The only thing that Trump beat Willders on is that the US had their elections sooner :)

Drop the sneering libtard 'populist' crap and call it democratic, which is what it is.

I dont understand, elections from europe are so important and takes place within month , but market seems not slightly care about them. 

zvzzt's picture

"...but market seems not slightly care about them"

Most of the West is broke, P/E ratings are questionable, consumer debt is insane and the market doesn't care either. Market has nothing  - or very little - to do with the real world. Especially over the past 10-odd years. 

jamesmmu's picture

Marine Le Pen may have just won the election. Biggest rival Francois Fillon, the Globalist has been outed for corruption. Just like Trump and Clinton


Danoc's picture

I don't think so. It's a 2-round election. She will have a big score at the first round and likely be defeated at the second round.

She is the second generation of the National Front. France will be ready to get a leader from the third generation of the National Front, not before.

'The Dutch Trump'...WTF?  I can't imagine Geert Wilders is going to suck Saudi cock, order MORE troops into the Middle East, order drone strikes and Special Forces into Yemen and demand that Russia give back Crimea, so NO he is not the 'Dutch Trump'

Get over youselves, America!

ArtOfLife's picture

Wilders and Trump both love Jews. So they have that in common. But that's basically the only thing.

SheHunter's picture

Agree.  The kissy-huggy-love-Israel jargon is Trump's biggest short.

just the tip's picture

i remember reading about him while still at "gates".  he reminds me of assange.  the guy has got to be brave.  but the dutch won't elect him.  there is too much at stake and the dutch are just too comfy to be rocking a boat.  i agree about the dutch trump horseshit.  geert is his own man.

The lamestream MSM will blame Putin for Wilders and Le Pen. Or will they finally give that up?

Smart people anticipate things. One would conclude people in Europe would move their money to our markets and banks. So a market crash here would be less likely if the (when) Euro implodes.
