Trump is surrounded by Neo-Conservative swamp creatures.  Dr. Dave Janda welcomes Eric Dubin to Operation Freedom for a gut check on Trump’s first 100 days in office.  It’s not pretty…

TND Podcast Spotlight:  Operation Freedom

Dr. Janda argues the Trump Administration is largely a Goldman Sachs driven establishment presidency.  Sadly, I’d have to agree.  The gulf between Trump’s populist campaign promises and radical Inauguration speech that waxed eloquently about ending business as usual in Washington has been marginalized, ring-fenced and tossed right back into the swamp. 

Meanwhile, the U.S. economy is rolling over, with economic indicators flashing recession on the horizon as the Federal Reserve and other central banks struggle to deal with the contradictory objectives of returning interest rates to somewhat normal levels with a banking system that still requires excess liquidity injections to truly function.
