The West lost its Greatness and was weakened from within but love will make it great again

What in the world is happening in Europe? Just take a look at the mess in France. Yellow Vest protesters are angry and say it is because of the rising fuel cost. Electricity bills have also risen 500 percent in five years. France have the highest tax rate in Europe with a tax rate of nearly 50 percent. Far-right Marine Le Pen is also rising along with Macron`s tax hike.

France is burning. So are Sweden. A country without a government at the moment. Swedens far-right populists won their biggest ever share of the vote in Swedens recent election, and made it difficult to establish a new government. The Swedish government also sent pamphlets warning of an impending war to its own citizens.

According to Hanne Nabintu Herland, the West have lost its greatness, and the democracy you live in are turning into an authoritarian state. The French philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville said that if democracy becomes a totalitarian structure, then we have a system which is no longer free. Just take a look at freedom of speech.

The first number of the U.S bill of rights is the freedom of speech and for generations that was unquestioned. The most celebrated of the U.S rights. That have changed because the leaders have changed.

California Congressman Ted Liu said on National TV that he would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The first amendment is dead and the truth and the freedom of speech is taken away from he people if the ability to speak the truth are being shut down.

A small elite have tried to model the world into a New World Order. 6 corporations controls 90 percent of the media in the U.S, and it`s very easy to control. Most of them hate their own president, because he is against them.

It is a culture war in the West right now. The West lost its Greatness and was weakened from within. Author Hanne Nabintu Herland discover how the West lost its value, causing its current decline. What we see is a forceful attack on the extreme liberal, anti-religious ideology, and this has been going on since the 60`s.

Its 50 years since the revolution in France in 1968 and now its a new revolution going on. It is an attack on the extreme liberal and anti-religious ideology which since the 60`s has permeated the Western culture and weakened its very core.

The West is now characterized by strict elitist media censorship, hedonism, a culture of drug abuse, abortion, ethnic clashes and racial divide, a destructive feminism and the dramatic break-down of the family.

An ultra-rich elite pushes your nation into a new, authoritarian globalist structure, with no respect for Western historical values. «The culture war» shows how we can restore these values to bring back justice, mercy, faith, honesty, fidelity, kindness and respect for one another.

The book also describes the greatness of our traditional and religious values that once made our civilization prosper.

Virtues that will motivate individuals to love one another, the core of what will make us great again!

Who are the “gilets jaunes” (yellow vest) protesters?

Mainstream Media (MSM) is telling you that the protesters in France are Far-Right or hooligans, but that`s a big lie. The protesters are people in all ages from both left and right and from all different classes. This movement is different from all other movements we have seen in France so far.

70 percent of the people in France support the movement and it`s not only about gas prices but also about their standard of living. This is happening in a country with an Unemployment rate of 9,1 percent and a wage growth of 0,4 percent. On top of that there is a Youth Unemployment rate of 21,5 percent. Not only that; the unemployment rate reached a record low of 7,2 percent in 2008. I repeat; Record low of 7,2 percent.

Protesters in France are chanting “We want Trump”, but why are they doing that? The difference between Trump and Macron couldnt be more clear. Trump are on the peoples side and cut taxes, while Macron is doing the opposite; increase the taxes which in unpopular to the people.

Yellow Vest Protest will pick up again on Saturday.

The wide spread between the 2-year note and the 10-year note is around 10 basis points which is the flattest since 2007

The stock marked plummeted on Tuesday with Nasdaq down near 4 percent. This is scary for many investors around the world. More scary is a quick look at the 2-year note that dropped more than 26 percent.

The wide spread between the 2-year note and the 10-year note is around 10 basis points which is the flattest since 2007. Bond prices move in the opposite direction of yields, and the spread between the 3-year note and the 5-year note have already inverted. 1-year note and 10-year isn`t near at all.

In a normal situation, the short-term bills yields less than the long-term bills, which means that investors expect a lower return when their money is tied up for a shorter period like 1,2 or 3-year notes. Investors require a higher yield to give them more return on a long-term investment.

If investors have little confidence in the near-term economy, the yield curve inverts. Investors demand more yield for a short-term investment than for a long-term one. They belive the near-term as riskier than the long-term.

In a situation like that, investors would prefer to buy long-term bonds and tie up their money for years in the long run even though they receive lower yields. The reason why investors do that is because they believe the economy is getting worse in the near-term.

An inverted yield curve is most worrying when it occurs with Treasury yields and that`s when yields on short-term Treasury bills, notes and bonds are higher than long-term yields. During healthy economic growth, the yield on a 30-year bond will be three pints higher than the yield on a three-month bill.

The reason why the short-term bill decline and makes an inverted yield curve is that investors believe they will make more by holding onto a longer-term bill than a short one. They think they need to reinvest in a short-term bill a few months any way.

If investors think that the economy is slowing and the recession is coming, they expect the value of the short-term bills to plunge in a short period of time. When the economy slows down, the FED lowers the Fed funds rate, and the short-term Treasury bill yields track the fed funds rate.

It is when the demand for long-term bills goes up that the demand for the short-terms bills goes down. Then the yield for short-terms bills goes up while the yield for the long-term bills goes down, and that`s whats happening now.

For example,when the yield on short-term Treasury’s rises higher than the yield on long-term bonds is where the yield curve inverts. The Treasury yield curve inverted for the first time since the recession. The 3-year note was higher than the 5-year note. Investors are saying that the economy is better in five years than in three years.

President Trump is disappointed when it comes to the FED`s descision to raise the rates which is going to raise to about 3,5 percent in 2020. Mr Trump and investors are worried it could trigger an economic slowdown in three years if the rates is too high.

This small inversion is probably temporary, but if it continues to grow bigger, we can be thrown into a recession. The current fed funds rate determines the outlook of the U.S economy, and people should never ignore an inverted yield curve. Just take a look at the history.

In June 2007, the yield curve was on the brink and went back and forth, between inverted and flat yield curve. The Fed reacted too late and lowered the fed funds rate ten times until it reached zero by the end of 2008.

The yield curve was no longer inverted but it was too late, and we know the rest of the story; The economy went into the worst recession since the Great Depression. This is just a reminder.

President Emmanual Macron criticized President Donald Trump for being a Nationalist but should take a lesson from him

French President Emmanuel Macron criticized the U.S President Donald Trump a few weeks ago. Macron said Trump was a Nationalist, and Mainstream Media (MSM) followed up to say that Hitler was also a Nationalist. Wow, what a comparison.

What journalists in the MSM is not telling people is that even Mahatma Ghandi was a Nationalist. The National Movement in India and the role of Mahatma Ghandi and Non-Violence is an example. Employing nonviolent nationalist movements as his weapon, Ghandii stirred Indian men and woman to «fight» for independence without shedding blood. But Ghandi was also a populist. Just like Trump.

Ghandi considered himself one, and his mission was primarily the establishment of a free, independent, culturally distinct Indian nation. He used to say that “nonviolent nationalism is a necessary condition of corporate or civilized life.” (As opposed to violent nationalism).

In the book “Autobigraphy of a Yogi” the writer, Paramahansa Yogananda, quotes Ghandi`s own words on nationalism:

“I call myself a nationalist but my natioanlism is as wide as the universe; it embraces all nations. My nationalism includes the prosperity of all nations. I do not want my India to raise on from the ashes of other nations. I do not want India to ever exploit any human. I want a strong India able to transfuse its strength to other nations.Today, none of the European countries does this; they do not transfer power to other nations.”

Ghandi was also a populist. Who know that? Populist rule is bad for democracy, but despite that, we can see that populists are being voted into office in country after country. Narendra Modi win elections when the institutionalized ties between non-populist parties and voters decay.

But there is a big difference between the populism we see outside of the U.S than inside. Trumps populism is good populism while many of the other populists are bad. Trumps plan is “America First,” and that`s why he is cutting taxes, made a lot of reforms and negotiated better trade deals.

There is no doubt that European Union is important, but at what cost? Take a look at President Macron. The man who talked about Trump`s Nationalism in his speech while MSM followed up with Nazi stories.

But who is in real trouble here? Rebels in Paris blasts Mr Macron for his gas tax hikes. The opposite of what Trump did. He cuted the taxes and the U.S economy is booming. The U.S unemployment is low while it remain high in France.

This is not the fist time I`m writing about the protesters in France. This is something that has been going on for years and decades. France need to do something to make a change, but do Macron have something to learn from Trump? It remains to see.

But it seems like Macron is doing the opposite of Trump who are a Nationalist and a Patriot. Trumpis doing what he can to protect his own citizens. Its all about "America First" and he wants to Make America Great again. Whats wrong with that?

President Macron is a part of the European Union which is driven by faceless bureaucrats. A collaboration the United Kingdom wants to leave. A collaboration that communist Jeremy Corbyn want to join again. Done by a second referendum.

But Paris rioters steal police rifle and torch cars while they are protesting fuel taxes, but the demonstrations are also an indication of growing animosity toward Macron. President Trump is on his own people`s side but President Macron seems to be against his own people with bad decisions.

People in France believe that Macron is serving the interest of the EU and not the French workers. A President should represent the people, “We the People,” but the French protest movement, known as jilets jaunes (yellow vests), are protesting against its own President and the state of France`s economy as well.

President Macrons popularity is low and will be so for quite some time, because he has given no indication he will bend to the peoples demand. This will give Macron`s political competitors like Marine Le Pen a huge advantage.

Cyber Monday can be the largest online sales day in history

Black Friday is over and now it is Cyber Monday. A new day with new opportunities. It`s Cyber Monday shopping for consumers to shop online, but it seems like it is Cyber Monday shopping on Wall Street too.

The Dow is up a whopping 373 pints amid expectations for a historic Cyber Monday. Nasdaq jumped 2,30 percent and ended at 6,677,26. I talked about the declining SPDR S&P Retail ETF on Friday last week, but it bounced back on Monday, up nearly 2 percent.

The shares of retailers rose on Monday after last week`s sell off. According to Adobe analytics, Cyber Monday spending is seen reaching an all-time high of $7,25 billion in the United States, and that will mark a historic day for online shopping.

Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the coming Holiday Season can help to lift retailers from the declining trend we have seen since October. The third-quarter reporting season is also over, with nearly 97 percent of companies in the S&P 500 having reported. 78 percent of the companies beat analyst expectations.

Cyber Monday is an event that can only be rivaled by Black Friday, and Cyber Monday is expected to set new spending records for online shopping in 2018. Not only total sales are high on Cyber Monday, but Cyber Monday is also likely to see a record number of online shoppers this year.

Cyber Monday was wild last year, but it jumped nearly 100 percent from 2016 to 2017. This year, the online sale is expected to jump over 10 percent. $7,25 billion in sales will be a new record for online sales in a single day.

Trade tensions will come back later on this week as President Donald Trump is planning to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at a multilateral Summit in Argentina on Friday and Saturday, with tariff escalation between the world`s largest economies on the line.

Investors are waiting for the G20 Summit convening in Buenos Aires on Friday and Saturday. In the mean time, be prepared for what can be the largest online sales day in history; Cyber Monday.
