The Collapse Of World Trade
"My fears of a collapse in global trade, the likes of which we have not seen since the Great Depression are coming closer and closer to reality. Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is dead. Obama’s Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is also dead on arrival. Neither of those agreements is realistically about free trade. Both contain inane provisions allowing corporations to sue governments. And TPP is mired in global warming muck. Yet, the collapse of the agreements culminates a long period of dwindling deals of any kind. Trump is highly likely to label China a 'currency manipulator', and U.S. relations with Mexico are going to suffer whether of not Trump foolishly builds a wall. Other than the wall, if indeed one is built, it’s highly doubtful anything would have been much different under a Clinton administration. No one wins trade wars, ever. Sarkozy’s comments should be downright scary to any student of history. Trade tit-for-tat madness is very similar to what we saw in the Great Depression when the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act raised tariffs on 20,000 imported goods to record levels. I am in rare agreement with Ben Bernanke who says 'Economists still agree that Smoot-Hawley and the ensuing tariff wars were highly counterproductive and contributed to the depth and length of the global Depression.'"

The Oligarchs’ Plan to Monetize Humanity

The greed-diseased and power-obsessed Deep State oligarchs hate you for your freedom and love you for your money, and they are accelerating their plans to strip you of both. There are two things standing in their way: cash, and precious metals. The oligarchs are doing everything in their power to falsely discredit both of them in the eyes of the people. Cash and precious metals are physical manifestations of financial and human liberty. Liberty, which is indivisible, is the absolute last thing the oligarchs have in mind for us, as there is no profit in it for them. The oligarchs realize that the people are fast waking up to what is being done to them. While the Oligarchy remains an unimaginably dangerous enemy, it was wounded in the United States presidential election, is acting more erratically and illogically, and is starting to make serious mistakes. How we, the people, push forward from here will determine whether we remain free, or become slaves to the greatest Force of Evil ever known to mankind, the Deep State oligarchs.

While the above themes are not new to Inferential Analytics, the accurate and reliable forecasting method we have developed and use, the intensity with which the Deep State is pursuing its “dual mandate” of expropriating private wealth and enslaving the people by deliberately impoverishing them is absolutely unprecedented. If the people lose the war that the Deep State has declared against them, their futures and those of their descendants will be destroyed. The people must not and need not lose this war. In fact, the people can defeat the Deep State by using simple tools and common sense. The problem is that the people do not realize they have the power to take down the Oligarchy, so we all must work to open their eyes and show them the force of nature they truly are. That is our mission in this article, and the ones to follow.
