Anatomy of a fake reality

The economy is on the rise. No, it’s sinking. There are very good indicators. No, all the signals are catastrophic.
We’ve seen pundits on television hawking their version of the near future. Many of them represent organizations who have political and financial agendas.
For example, Globalist forces and their mouthpieces would have you believe that laying tariffs on imports will sink the stock market.
However, since the stock market is a rigged game for insiders, here is a proper translation of the above paragraph: “If tariffs are laid on, Globalist insiders will MAKE the stock market sink, and characterize that as a natural consequence of the new tariffs.”
In turn, then, a diving stock market will be PROMOTED (by the Globalist press) as a sign that the overall economy is in big trouble.
Trump surrounded himself with Goldman Sachs people because they could give him a rising stock market.
This is not an ironclad agreement. If Goldman decides Trump’s policies are wandering off-track, they can bail on him and send the stock market down.
This is how the economic game is played.
The return of some corporations from overseas, to set up factories in the US again? Fine. No problem. But Trump’s statement, several days ago, that he would lay a 25% tariff on imported steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum—that’s an anti-Globalist earthquake.
Globalist leaders in foreign countries are lining up to say they’ll retaliate. They’ll lay tariffs on imports from America. Bourbon, jeans, motorcycles, orange juice, rice. But is this the end of the world? No. It should be the first step in sorting out unfair and ruinous trade policies that have eaten into the US economy for decades.
The stock market is hyped as the prime indicator that passes judgment on what Trump (or any president) is doing. If it falls precipitously, that means he’s wrong and very badly wrong.
But in truth, the stock market is a separate giant Vegas casino. Investment funds’ algorithms move billions in and out of trades, minute by minute. Individual speculators bet on rises and falls. Claiming the condition of the entire US economy is reflected in the stock market is like saying the Powerball lottery reveals the financial health or sickness of the US automobile industry.
The stock market and the precious Dow are set up as a very profitable playground for insiders. That’s the beginning and the end of that story.
