Trump impeachment proceedings – perhaps this is why.

I am not a political expert, so I welcome your views on this – I could be wrong. But when you have a new president that is preaching national sovereignty in a globalist world, resistance is what you get. The following are some quick historic notes that attempt to put it all together.

 

 

NEW WORLD ORDER: A good thing – if done the right way. Trump’s latest speeches do not seem support this goal. 

Watch the historic January 16th, 1991 New World Order speech here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4659934/user-clip-bush-world-order

The term “new world order” has been used to refer to any new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power. Despite various interpretations of this term, it is primarily associated with the ideological notion of global governance only in the sense of new collective efforts to identify, understand, or address worldwide problems that go beyond the capacity of individual nation-states to solve.

The phrase “new world order” or similar language was used in the period toward the end of the First World War in relation to Woodrow Wilson‘s vision for international peace;[a] Wilson called for a League of Nations to prevent aggression and conflict. The phrase was used sparingly at the end of World War II when describing the plans for the United Nations and the Bretton Woods system partly because of its negative associations with the failed League of Nations. However, many commentators have applied the term retroactively to the order put in place by the World War II victors as a “new world order.”

The most widely discussed application of the phrase of recent times came at the end of the Cold War. Presidents Mikhail Gorbachev and George H. W. Bush used the term to try to define the nature of the post-Cold War era and the spirit of great power cooperation that they hoped might materialize. Gorbachev’s initial formulation was wide-ranging and idealistic, but his ability to press for it was severely limited by the internal crisis of the Soviet system. In comparison, Bush’s vision was not less circumscribed: “A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we’ve known”.[1] However, given the new unipolar status of the United States, Bush’s vision was realistic in saying that “there is no substitute for American leadership”.[1] The Gulf War of 1991 was regarded as the first test of the new world order: “Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order. […] The Gulf war put this new world to its first test”.[2][3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_world_order_(politics)

NAFTA: Bringing the Americas together. The North American Free Trade Agreement is an agreement signed by Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America. The agreement came into force on January 1, 1994, and superseded the 1988 Canada–United States Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Free_Trade_Agreement

ARAB SPRING (Tunisian Revolution): The Arab Spring (Arabic: الربيع العربي) was a series of anti-government protests, uprisings, and armed rebellions that spread across much of the Islamic world in the early 2010s. It began in response to oppressive regimes and a low standard of living, starting with protests in Tunisia (Noueihed, 2011; Maleki, 2011).[1][2] In the news, social media has been heralded as the driving force behind the swift spread of revolution throughout the world, as new protests appear in response to success stories shared from those taking place in other countries (see Howard, 2011).[3] In many countries, the governments have also recognized the importance of social media for organizing and have shut down certain sites or blocked Internet service entirely, especially in the times preceding a major rally.[4] Governments have also scrutinized or suppressed discussion in those forums through accusing content creators of unrelated crimes or shutting down communication on specific sites or groups, such as through Facebook (Solomon, 2011; Seyid, 2011).[5] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_Spring. These changes in government across a wide span of Arab countries happened in rapid succession – Does this look like the work of government-promoting factions such as CIA/MI5? The NWO, NAFTA, ARAB SPRING appear to be the process to a global government. 

TRUMP UN SPEECH PROMOTES SOVEREIGNTY: UNITED NATIONS, New York — In his third annual speech to the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump delivered a clear message in favor of nationalism and national sovereignty and against globalism.…Trump, in an oddly subdued speech in New York on Tuesday, reprised his case that all nations should exert their sovereignty, protect their borders, and reject any mutual and international cooperation that doesn’t put their country’s own interests first. For Trump, it’s “America First;” for everyone else it’s “[Insert Country Here] First.” “If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty,” Trump said. “And if you want peace, love your nation.” “The future does not belong to globalists; it belongs to patriots,” Trump said at the start of his speech. https://www.vox.com/2019/9/24/20881781/unga-trump-speech-2019-nationalism-sovereignty-again

“Looking around and all over this large, magnificent planet, the truth is plain to see: If you want freedom, take pride in your country.  If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty.  And if you want peace, love your nation.  Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first.

The future does not belong to globalists.  The future belongs to patriots.  The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.

It is why we in the United States have embarked on an exciting program of national renewal.  In everything we do, we are focused on empowering the dreams and aspirations of our citizens.” https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-74th-session-united-nations-general-assembly/

The New Order of the Ages has been the goal among philosophers for centuries. The plan has been well underway for a long time. Trump is interrupting this plan; with the expected severe resistance. So do you still wonder why there are impeachment proceedings?  

They want him out.

Why fast food is good for your waistline: Sept 4 2019

From Fidelity:

The stock market is giving new meaning to comfort food.

So far this year, shares of McDonald’s(MCD) and Yum Brands(YUM) are up 22% and 27%, respectively, versus the S&P 500’s 17% gain. Both companies use an asset-light model of franchising for the vast majority of their restaurants.

SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst Jake Bartlett said falling yields have boosted the major fast food names, which some investors consider defensive in a more uncertain economic environment.

“The asset-light fast food companies are attracting investors because they are valued as ‘bond proxies’ with their FCF [free-cash flow] yields more attractive as bond yields fall, are relatively insulated from wage and commodity cost inflation, and tend to gain market share in recessions (trade down),” he said in an email.

Even with the rally so far this year, Bartlett sees further upside for McDonald’s(MCD), which recently traded at $217. He has a Buy rating on the stock and a $240 price target.

In addition, Bartlett said smaller, secular growth chains were also doing well in this environment.

“The other group of outperforming restaurant companies have strong SSS [same-store sales growth] trends and clear sales drivers,” he added.

Bartlett cited Chipotle Mexican Grill(CMG) as an example with its strong same-store sales performance due to mobile ordering, a new rewards program, and innovative marketing campaigns.

He said Shake Shack(SHAK) is another standout with the “fastest store count growth among publicly traded restaurants.”

Shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill(CMG) and Shake Shack(SHAK) are up 91% and 114%, respectively, this year.
