The Not So Mysterious Case of Trump’s Falling Dollar

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

  1. “Google may very well find itself on the garage heap of history alongside CNN if it doesn’t realign itself with the new world.”

    Funny that….Q posts are saying the same thing. 🙂

    1. I was going to point out the same thing onrgaia! Further, Schmidt is apparently engaged in some of the illegal international activity, possibly including treason as well, according to the same source. Further the outright confiscation of corruptly gained riches will potentially neuter the powers JC discussed, and eliminate some as power brokers. This will likely involve certain tax free foundations and so-called charity organizations involved in corrupt practices. Such forfeitures will solve many a budgetary gap and fund a lot of infrastructure and modernization projects. Likewise, the bureaucracy will be trimmed back, by firing for cause and attrition at a high rate.

      2018 is shaping up to be a fabulous year!

      The USD is merely seeking its natural parity against the basket of currencies. I’m not aware of the administration actively seeking to undermine its value, but neither are they artificially propping it up. The lower value will drive up the cost of imports and make comparative value of exports more desirable. This is again good for the American worker and producers. Coupled with the lowered repatriation tax, and the dramatic reduction in the size of the thicket of regulations, this explains the rush of announcements for new factories, etc. That many corporations have chosen to share some of that wealth with their workers in bonuses and raises is an even greater surprise, and generator of more momentum.

      Excellent and timely piece, JC!!!

    2. onrgaia,
      fortunately, there are many people (and all of them really smart!),
      working for that to happen.
      Google will need to change and adapt, or else…
      yes, into the garage heap of history it will go.

  2. Google is a subsidiary of Alphebet. Alphebets executive chairman is Eric Schmidt.

    So who is Eric Schmidt?

    “Schmidt was born in Falls Church, Virginia, and grew up in Falls Church and Blacksburg, Virginia.[4][12][5][3] He is one of three sons of Eleanor, who had a master’s degree in psychology, and Wilson Emerson Schmidt, a professor of international economics at Virginia Tech and Johns Hopkins University, who worked at the U.S. Treasury Department during the Nixon Administration.[4][12][13][14]

    Schmidt graduated from Yorktown High School in the Yorktown neighborhood of Arlington County, Virginia, in 1972, after earning eight varsity letter awards in long-distance running.[15][16] He attended Princeton University, starting as an architecture major and switching to electrical engineering, earning a B.S. degree in 1976.[13][17] From 1976 to 1980, Schmidt stayed at the International House Berkeley, where he met his future wife, Wendy Boyle. In 1979, at the University of California, Berkeley, Schmidt then earned an M.S. degree for designing and implementing a network (Berknet) linking the campus computer center with the CS and EECS departments.[18] There, he also earned a Ph.D. degree in 1982 in EECS, with a dissertation about the problems of managing distributed software development and tools for solving these problems.[19]”

    But worry not. JC you may have hit a sweet spot because “On December 21, 2017, Schmidt announced he would be stepping down as the executive chairman of Alphabet, Inc, at the regular board meeting in January 2018. [11]”. Could they be in the process of realigning with the new world, or bringing in a switch hitter?

    1. Lol, thats Trump in his own moment. I’m sure he would recognize that its a bit more complex than he thought it would be speaking from the big chair. But I think he’s doing as good a job as any other president has. Its difficult to measure with him getting resistance from every angle in measures I’ve never seen any other president get. I only go back to Carter though. I mean and knowing what a president is.

    1. Dane, my goood man;
      I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful link. It brought tears to my eyes. I found some solace in the idea that it brought a degree of proofs, to some of what, on the surface may seem to most, to be my outlandish beliefs.

      Thank You
      PTM

      1. Your very welcome Peter I’m glad you found something of value in it. I think it lends itself to that quote about half of writing history is leaving the truth out and being some of the parts left out.

        When I hear folks today saying this country was created by dreamers/immigrants I keep hearing a different tune. One more like this country was invaded and conquered by dreamers/immigrants wanting, wanting, wanting…so they took, took, took. Yes there is a logical construct passing around that the indians were violent and fought each other over territories and its probably true to some extent. BUT, it was THEIR land to fight over and not dreamers/immigrants to take. The only difference these days is that there is no more land to stake a flag in to claim. So the new flag is having a child in the US to lay claim to the American dream that has long since vanished like the middle class.

        They can build a wall but it won’t help much. There are already immigrant avenues through Canada into the heartland of the US. Most likely an avenue paved and maintained by the jesuits and Hells Angels through pig farm lands.

        Hope you have a wonderful day Peter.

    1. Thanks CD, for some reason this makes me want to look into Eugenio Pacelli, Pope Pius XII.

      I’ve just started so to add some links:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichskonkordat
      https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Eugenio%20Pacelli%22%20site:wikileaks.org
      ….Whoa.
      “When I, as a historian, received permission to study [Pius XII’s] files in the Vatican Secret Archives, I came across several documents dealing with the Armenian genocide of 1915-16, which piqued my interest,” Hesemann says. “To learn more, I started to dig deeper into this subject and eventually located about 2,000 pages of hitherto unpublished documents on the biggest crime of World War I.”

      THE PROTESTANT ARMENIANS
      On the eve of World War I the number of the Protestant Armenians was more than 60 thousand. They lived in Adana, Arabkir, Balu, Berri, Evdokia, Erzurum, Talas, Kharberd, Kesaria, Marash, Mezire, Cungus, Partizak, Sebastia, Sis, Sgerd, Sivrihisar, Marsvan, Samsun, Ordu. Carsamba, Van, Istanbul and Ankara.

      ..It’s slow, but I’m starting to understand the timeline you’re getting at JC.

        1. Armenian Genocide according to my Armenian friends had a big involvement of the “Dönmeh” of (Crypto-Jews) at the end of the Ottoman rule in Asia Minor (Anatolia). Armenians who are an Indo-European people and a kingdom who were under the Sassanid Persian Zoroastrian Empire became the world first the Christian people and Kingdom. It is suggested that the Dönmeh saw Armenians as a competition and wanted them removed. Under Ottomans, non-Muslim natives were given special areas of trade and commerce where Muslims were not allowed to according to Islamic rules in the same way that usury was allowed to be carried out by the European Jews. As to the connection or hand that the Vatican had in the Armenian genocide, I am not well informed on that but it would not surprise me one bit.

      1. Hi Darren,

        Thanks for the links. I think you may be interested in this clip on a Youtube channel (The Outer Dark) by a fantastic Newzealander researcher. It seems, there was a coup in the Vatican in 1963 and the Pope was literally replaced with a body double. The photos are displayed and you will see how. As to why, I think it was a coup worldwide that brought us Islamists worldwide, the Clintons and the Obama regime with the aid of Soros and the assassination of Kennedy. All of these were connected IMHO.

        1. Thanks CD, for some reason your comments really get my brain churning haha. I’ve asked myself since was Adolf Hitler a Christian? I’ve never understood nor taken the time to understand his religious beliefs before. I thought to myself what a great question to ask:

          “In this hour I would ask of the Lord God only this: that He would give His blessing to our work, and that He may ever give us the courage to do the right. I am convinced that men who are created by God should live in accordance with the will of the Almighty. No man can fashion world history unless upon his purpose and his powers there rests the blessings of this Providence.”

          This is an excerpt given by Adolf Hitler in 1937 when he was Chancellor of Germany. I’m puzzled by this.

          1. Perhaps this will help with your puzzle Darren.

            “Persuasion of Hitler”

            “Adolf Hitler over powered Germany, by mastering rhetoric, the art of persuasion. He persuaded people by making speeches and putting on a show to “wow” people. For example when he made speeches at the Zeppelin field, he had installed hundreds of spotlights to go on while he made his speeches. As all the lights shine up, it was hard for people not to be impressed about such an event. As outsiders viewed it, they wanted to be a part of it because it looked so intriguing. Germany believed that Hitler wanted peace; little did they know he wanted to wipe out all of his political opponents and majority of the non-Aryan race people.”

          2. You’re very welcome Darren and my apologies for “brain churning”, LOL. If it helps, I am in that same state almost at all times these days and I got to a stage where absolutely nothing surprises me anymore. In some ways, it is a sign that we are alive and in awe and wonderment of this world, which some say it to be a good thing. Who knows, but we keep churning 🙂

            As regards to Hitler and his religious beliefs, I can’t help I am afraid that please do share if you find something in that regards.

  3. JC, is the falling dollar in some degree driving the increase in the stock market. I think I’m trying to say, like a compensation.
