Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop

I feel uneasy at the election results. The elites worked so hard to defeat Trump; will they back down so fast because the voters voted?

Not that Trump is so much less harmful than Clinton in my own opinion. Read this realist extract from Ron Paul, for instance:

Republican candidate Donald Trump misses the point. He promises to bring back jobs to America without any understanding of the policies that led to their departure in the first place. Yes, he is correct that the middle class is in worse shape than when Obama took office, but not once did he mention how it happened: the destructive policies of the Federal Reserve. The financing of our warfare/welfare state through the printing of phony money. Distorted interest rates that encourage consumption and discourage saving and investment.

Trump tweeted this week that home ownership is at its lowest rate in 51 years. He promised that if elected he will bring back “the American dream.” He seems to have no idea that home ownership is so low because the Fed-created housing bubble exploded in 2007-2008, forcing millions of Americans who did not have the means to actually purchase a home to lose their homes. Not a word about the Fed from Trump.

But he was too oppositional for their tastes. The elites thought he was dangerous for their interests. So that’s it?!

There is now a court case against Brexit. In Bet Shemesh, new elections were called. Trump didn’t buy assassination insurance (choosing an even more displeasing VP).
