NY Times article causing a bit of a stir down under

WASHINGTON — President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call.

The White House curbed access to a transcript of the call — which the president made at Mr. Barr’s request — to a small group of aides, one of the officials said. The restriction was unusual and similar to the handling of a July call with the Ukrainian president that is at the heart of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

Like that call, Mr. Trump’s discussion with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia shows the president using high-level diplomacy to advance his personal political interests.

The discussion with Mr. Morrison shows the extent to which Mr. Trump views the attorney general as a crucial partner: The president is using federal law enforcement powers to aid his political prospects, settle scores with his perceived “deep state” enemies and show that the Mueller investigation had corrupt, partisan origins.

Downer was a fool. I played him the entire meeting that I knew was designed to spy on my energy related work and then to ask a bizarre last minute question about Clinton-Russia. The transcripts will prove it all, folks. They exist. The Australians already flipped on him.

The whistleblower gets straight to the point.


In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.

Donald Trump is tweeting more and it's affecting the bond market. In fact, the president's market-moving tweets ballooned in August as he hammered China on trade and went after the Federal Reserve on interest rates.

In an attempt to quantify the impact of Trump's tweets on the bond market, J.P. Morgan devised a "Volfefe Index" to analyze how the president's tweets are influencing volatility in U.S. interest rates.

J.P. Morgan found that the index, named after Trump's infamous and still mysterious "covfefe" tweet, explains a measurable fraction of the moves in implied rate volatility for 2-year and 5-year Treasurys.

"This makes rough sense as much of the president's tweets have been focused on the Federal Reserve, and as trade tensions are broadly seen as, first and foremost, impactful on near-term economic performance and, likewise, the Fed's reaction to such developments," wrote the authors of the J.P. Morgan report.

Trump's market-moving messages most often address trade and monetary policy, with key words including "China," "billion" and "products." These tweets are increasingly less likely to receive favorable responses, such as likes or retweets, from the president's followers.

Could be he's ferrying the attendees of all those Grand Jury hearings for the sealed indictments from the safe house and back. Whatever it is, it sure is interesting.

Domestically, given the recent argy bargy from those four women with the racial overtones, perhaps he is anticipating some civil unrest at the grass roots level.

Hang on, going on current trends in fifty years Israel will be an arab, muslim country. What we see now is akin to the last days of colonial India.

In the shorter term Israel can protect itself but has no chance of taking on a major military force like Iran, that's why they've been trying for years to get the Americans to take the lead on Iran. Not sure what Trumpy is up to...

Not talking about deregulating banking. More wresting monetary supply control away from the banks.

Trump is already on record as saying a gold standard will ruin the Fed. I think this is his goal.
He has also said, wtf is the US doing the middle East? Too much money lost that needs to be spent in the US. It's code for, we see a future without oil dependence in front of us. Probably the latter half of this century or early next.
The war with Iran won't be with the west. It will be with the west's help though. The leader will be Israel. If the US is to withdraw from the middle East they are going to leave with Israel as the boss. The child is about to become an adult.

PAYPAL has no US or Aus banking license and uses 3rd parties to transfer money...neither do most neo banks
We are a long way from banking deregulation I think

It wasn't created. It fell from the sky. There was no preceding like entity in any shape or form.

Some also said it was the same reason why Reagan got shot. But we are due for the one hundred year reset and the guise of currency is a hot topic.
If you read Thiel's Zero to One, he explicitly states the motive for creating Paypal was to find a new currency. Now Facebook is going to create its own. The removal of the Federal Reserve would allow such a thing to materialize.
