It is Wednesday, November 9, 2016, one day following one of the biggest political upsets in U.S. political history
As Donald Trump shocked everybody by defeating Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton was supposedly the most qualified person ever to seek the U.S. Presidency, and Donald Trump had no experience whatsoever
And the establishment had already sworn in Hillary Clinton; it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that she was going to win
I think she was almost a 10:1 favorite even on the day of the polls
Even the early exit polls were predicting a Clinton win
All the while, I felt in my gut that Donald Trump was going to win this election
Why did I think he had such a strong probability of winning?
I understood what almost no one in the mainstream media got, and that is the phony nature of the U.S. recovery
The entire time President Obama was congratulating himself for having gotten us out of the mess created by his predecessor, and bragging about the strength of the recovery
And labeling all critics as "fiction peddlers"
I understood that the "fiction that was peddled" was in fact, reality
And the real fiction peddler was the Commander in Chief
Not only President Obama, but the Federal Reserve - Janet Yellen and the rest of her cronies at the Fed
Constantly talking up the U.S. recovery and how the strengthening recovery would somehow result in higher interest rates
Of course, Wall Street had a vested interest in peddling that fiction
So everybody believed that the economy was strong, and therefore the voters would want to sign up for 4 more years
After all, if Obama was responsible for the recovery voters would want to continue that recovery under Clinton
They would not want to go back to the supposed failed policies of Bush that somehow would be adopted by Trump
I knew that the entire recovery was an illusion
And it simply existed in the minds of the people who fabricated it
