The stock market is a rigged game, of course, and current stock prices don’t even reflect real corporate earnings. Instead, they most closely echo the rise and fall of quantitative easing, a form of artificial money creation by the Federal Reserve.
The Fed uses its money creation powers to either boost presidents it wants to keep in power (like Clinton and Obama) or punish presidents it wants to see removed from power (like Trump, initially).
Barack Obama’s economic policies were disastrous, but he still managed to preside over a rising stock market thanks to the money creation policies of the Fed.
In fact, the Fed’s own charts reveal exactly how this works and what they’re trying to achieve.
Go to this link at FederalReserve.gov (which is a misnomer, since the Fed is a private corporation and not part of the government):
The link is called “Recent balance sheet trends” and shows you the Fed’s balance sheet, in trillions of dollars, from July, 2007 through December, 2019.
Follow the chart points below to understand exactly what the Fed is doing:
#1) Obama is inaugurated, so the Fed explodes the money supply and creates over a trillion in new assets for itself while it’s pumping money into the economy to try to make Obama look like an economic genius.
#2) The money creation continues throughout Obama’s presidency, helping to counter Obama’s disastrous economic policies that spur job losses and sharply reduced corporate earnings.
#3) Donald J. Trump is sworn in as president. Immediately, the Fed initiates its plan to crash the economy under Trump.
#4) Beginning in early 2018, the Fed begins contracting its balance sheet, destroying the “wealth effect” it had created under Obama, as a way to harm the economy under Trump.
#5) In September of 2019, the Fed reverses course and decides to return to pumping artificial money into the economy.
Look more closely at the following chart, which is zoomed in to the last 6 months:
#6) This is the inflection point where the Fed decides to start pumping money into the system to support Trump’s re-election. A Trump victory is virtually assured as long as the stock market doesn’t crash.
This indicates Trump likely made a deal with the Fed to keep pumping up the false earnings of an over-hyped stock market so that the banksters and financial elite could continue to skim their profits off the money supply.
The Fed, it appears, is now locked in with Trump, and that means Trump is almost certain to win re-election in 2020 if he’s not removed from power first (or assassinated by the deep state).
Note: This does not mean the Fed will be successful in its mission. There are strong warning signs that the market bubble may be entirely unsustainable, no matter what the Fed does with interest rates, quantitative easing and “repo” operations.
Make of this what you want, but have no illusions about the fakery of the stock market and the nefarious manipulations of the Fed, which answers to no one, not even Congress.
Lastly, we are of course in an irrational market bubble that will one day suffer a catastrophic correction, wiping out trillions in fictional “assets” that investors currently think are real. It looks like the Fed is trying to make sure that day of reckoning does not occur until after the 2020 election. If they can prop up the system for that long, it points to an early 2021 market crash.
It seems highly unlikely that the markets can continue to be propped up all the way through Trump’s second term, which means Trump will be blamed for the most severe market crash in history.
Alternately, if a Democrat manages to win in 2020 — let’s say Elizabeth Warren — that Democrat will likely take the blame for the catastrophic crash that was actually inherited from the Obama era money printing of the Federal Reserve.
Whatever you believe, do not suffer under the illusion that the stock market is a fair representation of actual corporate earnings and growth potential. For the most part, the markets simply reflect money creation by the Fed. The fundamentals are long forgotten, which means most investors in America today are living in the era of sheer delusion, having no clue of the events that will sooner or later wipe their “assets” from the books and recalibrate stock prices to reflect the reality of corporate earnings (without endless easy money from the Fed).

He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.
The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.
Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.
Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.
With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.
Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
