The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed

Ilana Mercer, Ralph Fitch, and Michael Oliver return.

The title of this episode, taken directly from Ilana’s latest book, states that “Donald Trump is smashing an enmeshed political spoils system to bits.” We know now that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to enrich the Clinton Foundation to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars by granting favors to corrupt foreign dictators. Her Neocon status means our endless wars will continue. In short she is about serving Hillary at the expense of the American people.

On the other hand, if Trump were to follow up on his campaign rhetoric, the established order could be “smashed to bits,” but what might a Trump Presidency mean for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? We talked to Ilana about relevant content from her book.

Ralph updated us on the gold exploration progress being made by TriMetals Mining and Michael provided his usual witty and sound views on gold and other major markets of interest.
