Posted on 09/15/2015 4:35:07 AM PDT by smoothsailing
The latest sunlight onto an increasingly obvious RNC/GOPe scheme comes from the most unlikely source, POLITICO, who highlight their article Wall Street’s Latest Panic.
In very direct ways their article cuts to the very heart of the matter – Wall Street cannot fathom a Donald Trump candidacy – They Planned For JEB!
However, this reality is still met by people who refuse to accept the overall system we call modern 2016 Presidential Politics is entirely the construct of financial stakeholders who have financed, and in 2014 constructed, a political road map for Clinton/Bush 2016.
We still find people who don’t understand the basic element behind this truth:
Jeb Bush is Wall Street, Donald Trump is Main Street !
NEW YORK Wall Street is growing increasingly terrified that Donald Trump once viewed as an amusing summertime distraction could actually win the Republican nomination for president.
The real estate billionaire, who took another populist shot on Sunday by ripping into lavish executive pay, continues to rise in the polls. Would-be Wall Street saviors like Jeb Bush are languishing in single digits. The belief that Trump’s candidacy would quickly fade is now evaporating in a wave of fear.
I held four lunches for investors in August and at the first one everyone assumed Trump would implode, said Byron Wien, vice chairman of Blackstone Advisory Partners and a senior figure on Wall Street. By the fourth one everyone was taking him very seriously. He taps into frustrations that are very real and he is a master manipulator of the media.
The CEO of one large Wall Street firm, who declined to be identified by name criticizing the GOP front-runner, said the assumption in the financial industry remains that something will eventually knock Trump off and send voters toward a more establishment candidate. But that assumption is no longer held with strong conviction. And a dozen Wall Street executives interviewed for this article could not say what might dent Trump’s appeal or when it might happen.
“I don’t know anyone who is a Donald Trump supporter. I dont know anyone who knows anyone who is a Donald Trump supporter. They are like this huge mystery group, the CEO said. “So it’s a combination of shock and bewilderment. No one really knows why this is happening. But my own belief is that the laws of gravity will apply and those who are prepared to run the marathon will benefit when Trump drops out at mile 22. Right now people think Trump is pretty hilarious but the longer it goes on the more frightening it gets.”
The latest frightening broadside for the Wall Street class came on Sunday when Trump said on CBSs Face the Nation that executive pay in America is a complete joke and promised to raise taxes on the hedge fund guys. In a statement sent to POLITICO on Monday from his campaign, Trump relished in the attacks from Wall Street, singling out both Bush and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, another favorite on Wall Street.

When we stated almost two months ago that unless something rather radical changes the general election movement is headed toward “Donald Trump VS Joe Biden” many thought we were nuts. [ One person didn’t. ]
Why is Trump VS Biden predictable? To answer that question you need to stop looking at the water flowing over the dam in front of you, and start looking ‘downstream’. I’ll explain…
Think about who is at risk to a Trump primary victory? Wall Street, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, K-Street Lobbyists, Tom Donohue, Mitch McConnell and the entire apparatus of the DC political class, the “power brokers”, or as we like to call them the GOPe.
Now think about who is at risk from a Bernie Sanders victory? You’ll note it’s the exact same players.
Think Long Term – Think about the power broker alignments and their preferred candidates in the General Election.
Jeb Bush VS Hillary Clinton is the ultimate Win/Win.
This is the outcome the Wall Street power brokers, the engineers, constructed within the GOPe road map. This is the outcome that Donald Trump has thoroughly screwed up.
Paradigm change ahead:
If you don’t think Rupert Murdoch has skin in this game, think again.
What does an Australian based power broker, financier and Wall Street king, have to gain or lose from a U.S. election?
The Trans-Pacific Trade Deal which entirely involves Australia.
Hence Murdoch’s alignment with the other Wall Street benefactor group U.S. CoC and Tom Donohue et al. Hence, Mitch McConnell changing the rules of the Senate to push the TPP deal through ASAP. Forty percent of the worlds manufacturing and GDP is on the line.
Now go back and look at that picture above again. The White House (Jarrett), Murdoch and Bush all together at a CoC holiday event – What connects them?
Five months later, Mitch McConnell changes the Senate Rules (TPPA) to benefit the White House (Jarrett), Murdoch and the CoC for the TPP deal. Can you see it now?
Again, put yourself in the position of the power brokers; begin thinking downstream consequences to this election cycle, and think about Trump defeating Jeb Bush. What are you left with?
Donald Trump VS Hillary Clinton?
That’s a Lose/Win scenario for this Wall Street group.
Subsequently, the more Hillary becomes weak through her scandals, issues, polling weaknesses and investigative problems, the more she represents a risk of the equation tilting away from the outcome needed by the power brokers.
The GOPe Wall Street crowd must control the outcome to their benefit. They can’t risk having Hillary so compromised. If they cannot defeat Trump, they can only work on the other side of the equation.
As a direct and immediate consequence what do you get?
Donald Trump VS Joe Biden.
A stronger Lose/Win scenario.
Biden becomes a better option, a safer option, than Hillary.
When the power brokers begin to lose control; when the Trump water begins to come over the dam faster than they can direct it, you must look downstream and watch what they are trying to protect. Look where the engineers are are placing the sandbags.
Wherever they are placing their sandbags you will find the house where they are hiding their treasure. This show you the real goals they need to protect.
That’s why we said a month ago look forward, see the “tripwire”, and you can see a Trump V Biden match up being constructed. That’s why they are poll testing Biden VS Trump.
There are tens of trillions at stake in this entire construct. Players within this game never leave anything to chance. Failure, or lack of full control of the outcomes, is not a viable option….
…. yes, as someone keeps saying, it’s all about “DEALS”.
…. Stay tuned !
Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives, more vulgarians.
The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:
In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each states delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.
States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.
Thats important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015)
Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?
In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):
Officially, its Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)
Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?
These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 – Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.
Goldman Sachs and Other Anti American WS money grubbing operations need to be raid to see the extent of there treason and manipulation if our elections.
The crash of 2008 was a orchestrated hit by these WS elites to destroy our constitution using this Soros puppet .
Trump is going to be phenomenal for the stock market. I see it dropping initially for sure but I see it exploding after that once the market finds its new way forward. Cash is where you’re going to want to be when that time comes.
The big money power broker issue is far and away the single biggest issue in a Trump win. If he busts the backs of the entire corrupt political cartel, it will truly be a historical reformation moment in American politics. Think of how long this corrupt cartel has been orchestrating politics to the detriment of the American people.
What do you see for silver and gold?
“I’m sorry, Boys. Put the Duke Brothers seats on the Exchange up for sale at once. Seize all assets of Duke and Duke commodities brokers, as well as all personal holdings of Randolph and Mortimer Duke.”
Lots of people on FR that have allied themselves with these snakes hoping that they can boost their candidate **Scott Walker*** by positioning him as a folksy non-threatening, and establishment-friendly Donald Trump, that isn’t going to mess with their influence.
Too many of the big money Wall Street donors are motivated by the most narrow, selfish interest. The condition of the nation is of little concern to them, as long as they continue to thrive. That’s why so many of them had no problem supporting Obama. At the time, I had a hard time fathoming how any of them could support a candidate whose policies were so obviously going to be bad for the economy. Surely Wall Street was economically literate enough to see that. But the truth is, they didn’t care so long as they felt reasonably sure that they, personally, would be spared any of the pain.
I’d like to see a Trump/Perot ticket. I mean, why not?
I cashed all mine in last week- about 4 grand worth
Excellent article. It really helps connect a lot of the dots.
At 87 Perot would be the oldest VP in history.
They don’t want individual investors aka the little people in the stock market because that would upset the apple cart.
They’d have to cheat in order to get any kind of advantage in that situation.
But he and Trump could fulfill their second Clinton Presidency together!
In 1968 he flew Christmas trees to Vietnam for the troops. Even the smallest base camps got one. There was no publicity and no one knew who did it.
Yep, Perot loves America.
Having the early primary states divide their delegates proportionately, combined with the rule requiring a candidate to have a delegate majority in 8 or more states in order to be nominated explains why there are so many establishment candidates running this time around. The GOPe’s initial plan was to try and keep as many candidates in the race for as long a time as possible to deny any outsider from winning a majority in 8 or more states. What they hadn’t counted on was how poorly their chosen candidate, Jeb, would be doing. It’s looking now as if he won’t even win 8 states. In fact none of their candidates look likely to do so.
