Have you noticed the lack of background about the large business empire now being discussed about Donald Trump. The focus is exclusively on his conflict-of-interest as POTUS. Months ago, the talk was about his failure to release his tax returns and about his businesses in the USA. His trip to inaugurate his Scottish golf course. That he had business dealings in Russia was the first MSM hint of Trump’s international involvements. Suddenly we discover Trump towers rising in many nations.
The media initially questioned Trump’s real wealth, millions or billions; starting with challenging his claims of great wealth. The media doesn’t, now, discuss what his wealth might be with all his international businesses. What is going on? What Trump “businesses” have failed, and what are “succeeding”? Are the many Trump Building actually owned by Donald Trump or the business he shares with his children? Does the Trump Business actually construct and manage buildings having the Trump brand, or does it only promote the brand for the real owners? Enterprises like Trump University and his TV show were props for his brand marketing, many which didn’t do well.
On Sept 27, 2016 Frontline released a 2 hour program, The Choice: a uncensored history of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. There are reported a number of unsavory deals and persons involving Trump’s early business years that have not been mentioned anywhere else in the media. But a blockbuster section beginning shortly into the second hour provides evidence that Trump is a failed businessman, and it claims that he doesn’t actually own most of the businesses that carry his brand: TRUMP. Donald Trump is a hired barker for bankers. He has no business competencies to be POTUS, as he falsely claimed during his campaign.
About 15 years ago almost all of Trump’s businesses were failing, he owed 40 banks over 3 billion dollars. These bankers met with Trump in Trump Towers to decide what to do with him. They all agreed that Trump was an incompetent CEO; but a great promoter. His brand, TRUMP, was worth gold for the bankers. So, with his image “too big to fail” they continued to buy the TRUMP brand, but The Donald was no longer in charge of the businesses. I expect that The Donald owns a small percent of stock in “his” businesses and is permitted to tout them as HIS. It appears that the TRUMP businesses after this decision have basically succeeded – Trump no longer being CEO. Trump and family have a business of selling his name – that is all.

“Trump says his comeback began when he recognized a downturn in the real estate market and quickly asked banks to renegotiate his loans. “That decision was perhaps the smartest thing I did,” he wrote.
The six bankers and lawyers involved in the talks say the bailout wasn’t based on any overture Trump initiated with the banks – and the terms of the deal were dictated by what was best for the banks, not Trump.
Three of the participants say Trump didn’t acknowledge he had a problem until his lenders reviewed his books, realized he was on the brink of collapse, and summoned him for debt restructuring talks.
While much has been written about Trump’s financial troubles at the time, there has been little examination of his description of the bank negotiations in “The Art of the Comeback,” including his assertion that he chose to initiate those talks.”
One of Mr. Trump’s most lucrative initiatives has been the licensing of the Trump brand – and name. There are Trump-branded properties like towers and hotels in some 20 countries.

Why is this information not being further spread in the media that is fearful of a Trump POTUS? How was it permitted in the Frontline episode, still being available online?
A TOOL OF THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL SYSTEM
TO NORMALIZE GLOBAL FASCISM?
Donald Trump is not POTUS. POTUS will be the Cabal of Bankers with Trump as their frontman. This is a threat well beyond Citizen’s United. Conflicts-of-Interest will extend well beyond the personal interests of Trump & Family. THIS should be sufficient for the Electoral College to declare Trump ineligible. Anyone reading this please try to get this information to the Electoral College members and others concerned.
There is no unified “Wall Street”. Economic and financial forces are diverse and competitive, nationally and globally.
“Objective Reality” is in radical transition, but we humans don’t have direct access to it. We each create inner maps (wrlds) of simplistic stories in hope that they will be valid enough to guide appropriate action. Our old stories are no longer sufficient.
ALTERNATIVE BIG PICTURES. Every human is limited to access only information in their immediate environments, claimed to be about events elsewhere on Earth. Objective Societal-Reality is not observable; we only have access to reports. As we enter 2017, the ascendancy of Fake News and claims that THERE ARE NO FACTS, shoves us into a very dangerous, evidence free game. All that is left is personal opinions and beliefs, psychologically supported by engineered news within new media technologies. What is actually going-on is very hard to determine – we are limited to speculation based on what evidence based reports continue to exist.
Consider a highly speculative story, of competition between two global economic/financial cabals, represented by Clinton and Trump in the recent election.
The Cabal using Clinton: Their goal is to strengthen USA/West hegemony, if necessarily by force, to preserve the dollar, and to compete with BRICS over world dominance.
The Cabal using Trump: Their goal is a multi-centered global economy of corporate/nation systems that compete among themselves without war. There will be few international requirements on how each corporate/nation rules its population.
Neither Cabals are smooth running systems and there are many other forces at play than these two.
