They have the power to crush our economy just in time for Donald Trump's terms in office.
From Nathan McDonald writing at Sprott Money:
Will The FED Deliberately Crash the Economy to Defeat Donald Trump?
Gold and silver have been beaten and battered with the recent FED hike rate announcement, even though it is only a pathetic 0.25% - scarcely anything that will stop the avalanche of fiat money and inflation that is plaguing the world over.
What is causing even more of a correction in precious metals is the news from Janet Yellen and her peers in the FED that states there will be three more hikes upcoming in 2017!
This is a complete reversal of the FED's past policies under President Obama, in which they have done everything possible to keep this bogus "recovery" afloat, if you can even call it that.
And the possible crash?
For years, the FED has weaved a net of confusion over the markets, acting bearish and then dovish in the same sentences. This, as I have highlighted many times in the past, has been purely to confuse the public and keep them in a constant state of unknowing.
Yet, perhaps this time is different? One thing that has changed is the fact that President-Elect Donald Trump will soon be taking office, despite the wishes of the financial overlords and elites.
This of course includes the FED and as I predicted all last year, the FED would not do anything with interest rates until the election results were concluded, not wanting to hurt the chances of Hillary Clinton winning, and not wanting to crash the economy on Obama's final stretch in office.
Now, they can act and use the FED as a weapon. The best, last hope that the elites have of defeating Donald Trump is to destroy his first four years in office.
If they are able to orchestrate a new crash in the markets, then they will be able to blame the forthcoming disaster on Donald Trump, even though its occurrence has nothing to do with him.
I believe that this is going to be their best plan of action, if they want to destroy the spirits of Trump's supporters and I believe this is exactly how they plan on bringing him down. Now, all that we can do is inform the public as best as we can, wait and see, prepare ourselves by investing in precious metals and seeing how the situation resolves itself.
Prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.
If this is what happens, their fingerprints will be all over it and it will not take President Trump long to prosecute those involved. A big show trial will convince the American people who it was that landed them into these straits.
