Has The Deep State Begun Its Revenge On Trump?

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com,

The Deep State is set to prick the largest bubble in human history today…

The Deep State is the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy - the top tier of the military, the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. It also includes the Federal Reserve, the quintessential Establishment institution.

They all hate President Trump. They did everything possible to stop him from taking office. None of it worked. They fired all of their bullets, but he still wouldn’t go down.

Of course, the Deep State could still try to assassinate Trump. It’s obvious the possibility has crossed his mind. He’s taken the unusual step of supplementing his Secret Service protection with loyal private security.

But for now, anyway, the Deep State’s next move is to pin the coming stock market collapse on Trump. He’s the perfect fall guy.

When people think “Greater Depression,” they’ll think “Donald Trump.”

Right now, the Federal Reserve is the Deep State’s weapon of choice.

The economy has been on life support since the 2008 financial crisis. The Fed has pumped it up with unprecedented amounts of “stimulus.” This has created enormous distortions and misallocations of capital that need to be flushed.

Think of the trillions of dollars in money printing programs, euphemistically called quantitative easing (QE) 1, 2, and 3. Meanwhile, with zero and even negative interest rates in many countries, rates are the lowest they’ve been in 5,000 years of recorded human history.

On top of that, the too-big-to-fail banks are even bigger than they were in 2008. They have more derivatives, and they’re much more dangerous.

If the Deep State wants to trigger a stock market collapse on par with 1929, it just has to pull the plug on the extraordinary life support measures it’s used since the last crisis.

This outcome is already baked in the cake. It’s just a matter of when… and there’s a good chance “when” is today.

Source: Ben Garrison

In December 2015, the Fed raised interest rates for the first time in almost a decade, from 0% to a mere 0.25%. It kept rates there until last December, when it raised them to 0.50%.

The Fed also announced it would accelerate rate hikes throughout 2017 - three in total. It will probably announce these rate hikes during the seven remaining Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meetings scheduled for 2017.

This means the Deep State could trigger its controlled demolition today.

Yesterday's Fed rate hike (which will likely be the weakest period of economic growth for a rate-hike since 1980) could help prick the massive bubble in the stock and bond markets.

Trump recently said:

What happens if that interest rate goes up 2, 3, 4 points? We don’t have a country.

In any case, I think some of this year’s rate hikes will be much bigger than the 0.25% most expect. The Fed could pull a series of 0.50% rate hikes… or go even bigger.

Anything greater than the normal 0.25% tempo would shock the market—and seem designed to hurt Trump.

Trump seems aware of the situation. He recently said, “They’re keeping the rates down so that everything else doesn’t go down.”

He’s also said that “we have a very false economy” and the stock market is a “big, fat, ugly bubble.”

During the campaign, Trump called Fed Chair Janet Yellen “highly political.” At that point, he said the Fed should raise interest rates but wouldn’t because of “political reasons.” (Raising rates before the election would have hurt Hillary Clinton.)

Now, even a small rate increase is a lethal threat to the US budget. The US government currently needs over $400 billion from taxpayers just to pay the interest on its debt. Tax receipts are just over $2 trillion.

If interest rates rise…

  • 1%, the government would need over $600 billion to pay the interest on its debt.

  • 2%, it would need over $800 billion.

  • 3%, it would need $1 trillion.

  • 4%, it would need over $1.2 trillion, or over half of what it currently snatches from taxpayers—again, just to pay the interest.

Clearly, none of this is sustainable.

The Deep State is planning moves during Trump’s first 100 days in office that could change everything in sudden and unexpected ways.

Yes it has...

I feel sorry for Donald...he wants to do some great things...and all these fucking left wing liberals and media do is knock him down.  I bet he is pissed & saddened.  We shall see....I am a little discouraged myself.  Like...Why would he trust Paul Ryan?


I pray he can get all that needs to be done...DONE...Shumer, Pelosi, all of this leftover crap is stuck in the drain....FLUSH EM.

Donald needs to use some of his "Art of the deal" tactics.

Take the strongest position possible, and negotiate down. Take the immigration ban. Just ban ALL immigration, and write in the bill, regardless of the benefit or detrimement of the American people... yadda yadda. You can't be racist, if you close the doors on everyone. So, the left lose their "Muslim Ban" b.s. and have no way to stop him, legally, as that is completely within his power as President. 

He has to make bold moves, and rub everyone's nose in it, like the spoiled children they are acting like... then, reach out, and make a compromise. Otherwise, it's going to be four years of tantrums and liberal tears, that will equal four years of gridlock.

Ya, nobody saw this coming...

Bunch a damn psychopaths banking on our ignorance.

ya right, he broke our perfect system in a couple months, before he even has a complete staff, before the first bill is passed, he broke it, sure, great plan to cover your tracks.

All Presidents are puppets in the end, some less willing.  Trump was never going to fix this mess, no matter

What ever happens, rest assured the real villeins will be hiding behind the scenes, hoping we're all so dumb...

Mr Trump:  United States Notes

We can pay off the debt in under 5 years using the procedure wherein US Notes replace federal reserve notes.

Bill Still for Secretary of the Treasury.

that shit started basically years ago, but obviously has ramped up since the election, of course.

We knew this shit storm was going to dump on T's watch.  What we don't know is how it's all going to play out.

...still stackin' and the popcorn is ready.  I'm rooting for T, but I have a plan B!

And another "we're doomed" date passes without incident. So much for the Ides of March interest rate hike controlled demolition theory.

This stuff is starting to read like Mayan calendar hysteria.

At some point the doom claimers need a physical tie to reality to maintain any semblance of credibility.

Deep State is Goldman Sachs, and Trump put six Goldmanites in his Administration.

Deep State is the military-industrial-surveillance-complex, and Trump is giving them an additional $54 billion dollars.

Deep State is neocon false flag wars and trade bills screw American workers, and Trump made Mike Pence his VP. As a Congressman, Pence voted for every neocon war, pushed the TPP and voted for every "free trade" bill.

Deep State is the banksters, and Trump is giving the banksters total control of the U.S. economy.

Deep State is Israel, and Trump has already kissed Bibi's arse and promised him whatever he wants.

Deep State is big pharma, and Trump is giving big pharma whatever it wants.

Trump has some Deep State enemies, like Soros and McCain, but he has some serious Deep State AIPAC friends, like Sheldon Adelson and Robert and Rebekah Mercer.

Trump has only been in office less than 2 months.

You have no idea how this turns out.

I disagree with this analysis (But of course what does one expect from the home of Simon Black, International man of mystery?).

The timing is all wrong to blame Trump. He hasn't DONE anything yet but The Fed has. If the Equity markets collapse now, the finger would very reasonably be pointed at The Fed, not Trump. A year from now, perhaps, but they can't pin it on him now.

U4 eee aaa's picture

She is supposedly planning on raising 1.5% into 2018. Perfect timing to take it down in about mid 2018 and blame the whole thing on Trump

Mr. Universe's picture

That is the sad truth of the current state of affairs. It's taken quite a bit of time to come to this point, but they knew it was coming and they are ready. The only thing that could stop them is the realization that the Federal Reserve is a corrupt system that seeks to enslave them. This is how you know that the controlled opposition of talk radio is in on the scam. Never a mention of the number one cause of economic thievery on a Global scale, causes wars and impoverishing multitudes while buying control of every real asset with fake money. 

However I am reminded of a verse that gives me some hope.

    What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? Mt. 16:26

I have three Info Wars "End the Fed" bumper stickers.

Jones has brought it a little more mainline recently though - I think he takes his audience's knowledge for granted.

He still harps on vaccines though. I was surprised to hear him dismiss chemtrails on Joe Rogan's show though...

BobEore's picture

Not sure, but it would appear that you accidently disabled your sarc button while typing?

Otherwise, this memorable line -

Ya, nobody saw this coming...

would have to be one of the comedic highlights of the year. And though it strains credulity to the max to suppose there to be folks who actually believe that this farce was neither predictable - nor predicted - it's perfectly clear from the pathetic bleatings of innumerable ba!gholder/dupes/sockpuppets here that there is such a group of witless wonders still existent! 

The 'draining of the swamp' has already exposed the memorable outlines of a swamp creature so large - so omniverously ambitious, and gigantically greedy to 'have it all," that the only way to avoid seeing it - in all of it's horrible Squid-like dimensions...

is to invent storylines like this pathetic excuse for an article - whereby the "Deep State" is supposedely colluding to f/u Donnie Dupes secret plans to rescue us all from debt/interest/usury...

and bring back sound money and the Gold Standard!

Next up! Super Action Heroes go to work shutting down the FED... while a secret plan to have the Treasury issue silver coinage as real money is hatched by "white knight" Russian hackers and cuddly Chinese Banker dudes! A Hanna-Barbera production - brought to you by the makers of "The one and only cereal that comes in the shape of animals," ..

Crispy Critters. Sounds like a good way to describe all the dupes who gonna get their facial hair and netherparts singed real good - by the coming GOLDMAN SAAKS - N BURNS - WASHINGTON(pt 2!)

The most extreme action will be to issue US Notes for $1T and then spend it on any program not involving buying shares and bonds...

Trump is treating his voters like the students at Trump University.  Don't worry, America is heading for congressional gridlock as Trump antagonizes Republicans who are running for re-election in 2018.  I used to go to Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic City, a casino with a great location.  Can't anymore.

Cman5000's picture

Latest polling shows American's are not happy with the Dems and their constant attacks and disruption on Trump. It's a how to strategy on loosing elections in 2018 and 2020. I think Dems could suffer catastrophic loses in 2018 but it will be to late for them. Their Hubris and Ass Clownage will be their undoing.

..Like...Why would he trust Paul Ryan?

Or why would he choose Alex Acosta for U.S. Attorney who offered an unprecedented “sweetheart plea deal” to serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein?

I'll tell you why, because it's all a show for the sheeple. Sorry, it's hard to hear, but until you know the truth about the lie of all lies, you'll never be able to see through the veil of BS. Begin your journey here:https://youtu.be/ER9Ul_ostZ8

They all hate President Trump. They did everything possible to stop him from taking office. None of it worked. They fired all of their bullets, but he still wouldn’t go down.

Oh please.

Donald Trump is a Big Government Statist.

Statists want government to have a great deal of power over the economy and individual behavior. They frequently doubt whether economic liberty and individual freedom are practical options in today's world. Statists tend to distrust the free market, support high taxes and centralized planning of the economy, oppose diverse lifestyles, and question the importance of civil liberties.



Be very wary of the, "choices," that you are, "given."

The owners don't really care if we cheer for the black and gold team, or the blue and silver team, as long as you do cheer, do watch the games on TV, and do purchase their League's tickets and paraphernalia. 


Tarzan's picture

Surely you don't disagree, the establishment is trying to stop him? 

Big government doesn't propose massive cuts in the EPA, and State department.  And a Statist doesn't decentralize, or run foul The Teacher's Union.

He may be a blow hard Billionaire, bent on making himself great, but I'm not convinced he isn't for the People. nor that he's a Globalist.

Regardless, the coming crash was baked in long before Trump came along....

hedgeless_horseman's picture


I do disagree.

Proposing is one thing, and legislating is another.  Especially when knowing in advance it just ain't gonna happen.

I think we are being played, divided and ruled.

And stop calling me Shirley.

Tarzan's picture

I never said they'd pass his proposal, be he has proposed such legislation, which is far more then any recent puppet.

We're being played by the Globalists for sure. 

Trump is President because Hillary's camp underestimated the man. as do you. 

They may rule the world, but they fuck up too.  They thought he would fold under the media barrage, and Hillary would skate to the White House.  There's an all out press to stop him from exposing their secrets, even if it takes crashing the system to cover their asses.

He wont succeed, the flash crash is coming, but he's a thorn in their side, not their partner...

Shirley Not Goldilocks!!! "Temple" of Doom for the phony storyline on display here - if it turned out not to be .... ahh... quite 'true.'

Like the original Wizard of Oz was a spoof of the Silverite's champion's famous campaign of 96 "you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold"...

so the spoof being played out by the ONEMEDIA pon their witless readers is proceeding apace. Surely they will come to their senses in time????

Err. prolly not - phony populism amerikan style has a long history of making sure all power stays in the hands of those who "own the gold."

Trump has a bit of a cash flow problem. The Treasury is about to run out of money. How many 10s of thousand will get fired because the Federal Government ran out of money to pay them. If who gets fired in the Executive branch is up to Trump, this may be the shortest lived budget crisis in US history.

Zorba's idea's picture

Bring it on! We'll either have this Idiocracy or the restoration of a Limited Constitutional Republic, based on the rule of law, states rights and individual rights. Whether we are successful in restoring the intent of our Founding Fathers, to foster respect for private property, seek justice, provide opportunity, and secure Individual Liberty for ourselves and our posterity, is largely hinged on the collapse of the Deep State's corruption and its corrupting influencers. President Trump recently visited President Andrew Jackson's grave site...I hope this reveals his resolve to fight like Old Hickory for main streeters not wall streeters. I can and will fully support that

The noise from parts of the deep state cackling is a one man band desperately trying to recover control of the narrative. The wizards have been exposed and the coockroaches are scurrying about trying to hide the hiddeous truth...we have met the enemy, and damnit its US!

Normally the logic of the author's article would be correct. But not for Trump, who can go full Thump on them in fiscal and monetary policy terms.

If he goes full Andrew Jackson, it's game over for the Fed. 

He who controls the guns and the US Treasury, has the power of God.

It's transparent as all get out. Rates need to go up and we know it's not for the reasons given. Trump knows this and even libs might cheer if he calls them all out eventually...I have never met a person willing to defend the FED...Never......People know the economy sucks.

The "deep state" has to do exactly zero to prick the bubble. It's called a damn bubble for a reason, and if it were not for a shitload of patch ups it would have popped long ago.

We all thought it would, and it just keeps on growin due to intervention.

Let the bloody thing pop - why is this a bad thing and framed as though it's all in revenge of Trump? You think a majority of Trump voters give a fuck if the market tanks?

I think trump should be talking about the bubble pop every day instead of applauding the equities gains. 

It gives the impression he'll be blindsided by it when it pops. 

Like this new budget tho.. Foreign aid to Soros types being cut off and the debt is being repaid a little. These rinos need to buck up, the ez money isn't gonna be flowing like water anymore esp if this yellen bitch has her way coupled with the budget cuts.

If the fed wants to collapse the economy it would be easy.  All they have to do is dump their balance sheet on the market, and quit buying additional gov. securities.  They haven't done that because they know that it would completely destroy all their banker buddies, and the fed's reason for being.  They can't hurt Trump without hurting themselves even more. That goes for the deep state as well because we all know what they really want are those nice big pensions. If gov. securities go no bid guess what happens to those pension liabilities. Guess what happens to the Federal budget.  Nope, the fed isn't going to do anything.  They will keep the printing press rocking while they jaw bone tightening and toss out a pitiful 25 basis point fed funds rate increase here and there. The inflation is all around us, you can feel it. They've been trying desperately to hide it with mass importation of cheap 3rd world labor and rigging the numbers. The game plan is simple, continued inflation and financial repression into oblivion, because they can't handle what comes without it.
