USD has Dropped 9% and the Shocking Censorship of Real News
Researching through Google has now become almost impossible as censorship and pre-determined search algorithms skew all results. Search for almost anything Trump related and you’ll get an endless list of negative stories about Trump and his first year in office. You have to go deep into the results pages, if at all, before reaching positive stories which cover economic and geopolitical improvements.
This shouldn’t be surprising as most of the major corporations which drive Western culture had tethered their futures to the interests of the Anglo-American establishment and the Communist engineering which was intended to forever alter the demographics of once Protestant majority nations.
In just over a year Donald Trump, and the strategists behind his America first policy, have made substantial gains in reversing decades of liberal-leftist cultural and socioeconomic conditioning. The corporations and institutions which have built up around that mandate will incrementally start shifting away from the far-left spectrum and will once again embrace the conservative values which have built Western civilization.
Corporations and institutions invariably and organically align with the more macro monetary machinations which are governed by those who spread influence throughout the academic, economic, and geopolitical spheres. As the power base of those academic, economic, and geopolitical spheres transform, the corporations and institutions follow, from which the overall culture soon follows.
That method of socioeconomic transmutation is the mechanism through which all empires, and the banking interests which build up around them, are morphed into arranging around new paradigms, such as the America first policies of the Trump strategists. The reception which Trump was greeted by at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland is an example of how such shifts take place.
Back in 2015 we discussed here on POM how Trump would win the election and become the next President of the United States. How did we know this? The simple answer is that the political platform which his campaign was designed around was aligned with the transition of empire methodology which was explained above. The remaining concern was how to transform and drag the old order of academic, economic, and geopolitical interests to the new and improved watering hole.
When the US dollar was elevated to the position of international reserve currency 74 years ago, it was applauded as the dawn of American supremacy in the world. Though this was true in many aspects, the toll such pressure would exert on the dollar was not widely considered by pundits and those who leveraged off the system. Like previous currencies and empires before it, the seed of transformation was planted within the birth of the system itself, as the dollar was artificially maintained at higher valuations against the currency of those nations who did the highest amount of trade with America.
The reversal of this situation will inevitably lead to the depreciation of the dollar against those currencies. Trump and team have been talking down the dollar since taking office. The strategy is one where incremental adjustments are made to align with reductions in taxes, regulations, and demand on the international role of the dollar as the rest of the world begins to shift toward monetary alternatives.
While Treasury Secretary Mnuchin recently said that a weaker dollar was good for American trade and opportunities, Trump, who has followed the same script, changed his phrasing while in Davos, as reported at euBusiness.com:
“The US Dollar continued to slide Thursday until a fairly emphatic intervention in Davos from President Trump. The USD index against a basket of major currencies had fallen almost 4 per cent so far in January; its worst start to any year since 1987 and reached a low point of 88.21, down more than half a percent on the day. During the evening, in an interview with CNBC, President Donald Trump said, “the dollar is going to get stronger and stronger and ultimately, I want to see a strong dollar,” He added further that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s comments were taken out of context. The USD index jumped from 88.40 to 89.25, though overnight it has fallen around half a point to be back at 88.75.”
“Earlier in the day, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin played down his comments that a weaker dollar was “good for us as it relates to trade and opportunities”. Mnuchin told reporters, “I thought my comment on the dollar was actually quite clear yesterday. I thought it was actually balanced and consistent with what I’ve said before, which is, we are not concerned with where the dollar is in the short term.” Mnuchin said there were “both advantages and disadvantages of where the dollar is in the short-term” and stressed that the United States wanted fair economic competition. “We want free and fair and reciprocal trade. So, I think it’s very clear. We’re not looking to get into trade wars. On the other hand, we are looking to defend America’s interests.”
There would appear to be a play on words taking place. Keep in mind that a stronger dollar, as Trump states, might not necessarily be a reference to a higher valuation. An argument can be made that a stronger dollar would be realized when it has maintained a stable and functional valuation against other currencies, as opposed to a high valuation which was reflective of the international demands on the dollar, which, in essence, made the dollar weak.
Since Trump took office the dollar has dropped 9% against the euro and yen. This is paired alongside an almost 50% increase in the stock market, increasing job growth, tax cuts, lowest African American unemployment ever, and billions of corporate dollars coming back to America, which will increase domestic growth, and lead to large corporations, such as Apple, GM, Amazon, etc.., opening new US based factories and head offices.
All in all, the first year of the Trump era has brought great changes and improvements for the American way of life. The dollar depreciation, which some media find to be mysterious, is anything but. One need only understand the bigger picture, and how the Trump agenda fits into an evolving world, to grasp the paradigm shift which is taking place.
But don’t expect the mainstream media to embrace all of this yet. The fight continues until the board composition of some of these corporations and outlets are completely churned over. A simple Google search of the “economic benefits since Trump took office” gives back an endless list of anti-Trump articles and positions. It is clear Google is influencing the search algorithms which function to filter and prioritize results. Google may very well find itself on the garage heap of history alongside CNN if it doesn’t realign itself with the new world. – JC
