Remember my prediction of chaos?
I so appreciate your products and newsletter, as well as your invitation to respond to this recent post. Unfortunately, I respectfully disagree with your opinions regarding the Federal Reserve Bank and our recent 2020 Presidential election. Your reasoning regarding the Federal Reserve Bank's motives and "need for chaos and distraction" is not supported by any facts. You say: "they had to turn the illness into something massive, while shutting down the economy and causing considerable chaos," seems to be faulty logic and scapegoating. How did the Federal Reserve do those things, Glenn? How could a bank or its officials be responsible for the massive contagion, deaths, and required shutdowns? To impute such motives (or power) to the Federal Reserve bank, seems paranoid, angry, and unfounded. I would be interested to know more regarding these charges against the Fed. Thanks for sparking my interest in the role of the Federal Reserve. I am doing more personal research because of your writings.
My question to you: How can you not hold our current President responsible for the economic impact and longevity of the pandemic? He is our Commander and Chief! Trump admits he personally minimized the pandemic danger, then failed to act decisively to educate our public, and support early shutdowns, PPE for essential workers, invoking the Defense Production Act early in the pandemic, and utilizing executive power to provide immediate financial relief for the unemployed and families in need. During the worst of the pandemic (the last few weeks to now), Trump demonstrated his priorities: re-election. Rather than a focus on our citizens, national protections and support, Trump held super-spreader campaign events-with sometimes as many as 700 CoVid19 + tests resulting for attendees, and many dying after attending his events. I feel what has occurred in America this year sounds more to me like Presidential failure to lead, defend and protect. Trump’s presidential priorities has been to dismantle or weaken vital institutional protections, such as the EPA, CDC and the ACA, despite a national and global health crisis. His Presidency has been fraught with personal, institutional, and social chaos. I clearly hold Trump responsible for the chaos in our economy, and the charges you have attributed to the Fed.
As for the election - time, recounts and close scrutiny of any purported fraud will tell us who will lead our great country. I hope and pray we can get through this national chaos peacefully.
Glenn, you presented no facts or sources to support your opinion regarding this piece, so I can only assume you published your writing as opinion-only. Therefore, this is my opinion-only response. I thank you for the chance to respectfully respond to your piece. We are all in this together, collectively effected by these issues and sharing opinions like this is one of the reasons I love our dear country and freedoms.

It's all quite simple, really. The white horse is riding. ;)
Here’s my take. Calling our current reality a bad dream or nightmare doesn’t really do it justice. It’s more like watching an accident in slow motion without an ability to intervene. We’ve all been muzzled and fed a continuous diet of FEAR for months! We fought back and voted...our choice was obvious! And yet here we are. I truly believe God is our defender and he knows exactly what he’s doing. Having said that...it doesn’t mean he wants us to be idle. We all need to prepare and listen to this wisdom. Thank you Glenn for your courage to speak the truth and lead by example. Kudos to you!
Fascinating insights. Many people i know as well as myself have been refering to the wizard of oz scene where the professor tells Dorothy to ignore the man behind the curtian. We as the human race MUST wake up and.look behind the curtian at the ego driven fear mongering elitist who think the are smarter and know whats best for us. We are not children who need to have someone tell us how to live or.whats best for our well being.
I know you are not a financial guru, but what you say makes a lot of sense. What do we do if we are about ready to retire and our retirement is largely dependent on a CALSTRS organization. If we take the money out it is a smaller lump sum and we don't get life time income. I lived through the inflation of the 70s and wonder if you agree that buying tangible useful assets is sensible as they will only cost more later. If buying a car, would your advice be to take a loan or to buy outright? Finally, how do you make sure you can get access to overseas stored gold? Also, family loves the Pirate game. My grandkids have begun making up their own cards, and some are hilarious:)
I think you need to stop searching for boogiemen in dark hallways. There are enough real problems in the world; you do not need to invent more. Write a novel to channel your imagination more appropriately.
As far as the election, Biden received more votes and a recount may slightly alter the count, but it will not change the final result. In my state (PA) any corruption has been done by the Republican party. They wanted chaos around the voting. They could have allowed the paper ballots to be counted as they were received or even started the counting a few days early, as all the election boards wanted and which would have prevented problems and cost nothing, but they wanted to create mistrust of the results. The head of the state GOP actually discussed with the Trump campaign about overriding the popular vote and having the legislature appoint electors who would vote for Trump if there was confusion about the election results. He said the constitution allowed for this remedy. Now there is your novel.
Biden is a globalist, Trump is not. The globalists want Biden in power.
Agree as regards the globalists of which the Federal Reserve is a part. I believe you need add in Bill Gates plan to force vaccinate and microchip everyone so that the peons can be tracked.
So what do you do if you need housing right before this dollar collapse. Buy or rent? Where we live, the real estate market is sky high (Idaho) and we're looking at paying over 200 grand for a small house in a small town. What's a currency crisis going to do to people's mortgages?
