The Populist Uprising of Epic Proportions…

Publisher’s note: Tomorrow is a big day. We’re launching Port Phillip Publishing’s very first Special Investigation. What is Vern Gowdie investigating? To find out, you’ll have to watch the free premiere of Vern’s feature length doco when we put it online tomorrow.

But, according to Vern, its conclusion could have devastating consequences for our entire political and economic system. And it, I believe, will swallow up billions in capital that many ordinary Australians — perhaps you, too — assume is currently safely invested in shares, bonds and property.

Put simply: Vern has uncovered something rather explosive going on in the backrooms of the Australian halls of power. For a hint, read the following essay by American Markets and Money contributor Michael Covel. And be sure to watch for the full investigation tomorrow.

On the heels of the Brexit vote in June, Trump’s victory in the US has the upper-crust elites in full diaper-change mode…

As a recent Bloomberg headline declared: ‘Populism Takes Over the World’.

And the ruling class is whining that it’s a dangerous thing…

The Washington Post says, ‘Populist leaders undermine democracy.

And the Guardian warns that: ‘Across the world, the rule of law is losing out to rule by the mob.

The fact that large swaths of the unwashed masses around the world have revolted has sent global elites into a state of mass hysteria…

A vicious smear

Pampered globalists and their mainstream media sycophants have characterised Brexit and the Trump tsunami as the distasteful resurgence of sexism, racism and xenophobia, along with a ‘regrettable’ rise of nationalism.

The media narrative positions simple-minded folk driven by jingoistic opposition to immigration and trade coming out to vote en masse.

CNN presents these people as unknowing morons.

That’s exactly how you’d expect the ‘no skin in the game’ weak chins to describe their loss of power. Demonising the opposition is a cheap, transparent attempt to discredit it.

But now the smear campaigns don’t work…

In Brexit, the Brits merely reasserted their right to self-determination, kicking away the drunk ‘party boy’ bureaucrats in Brussels.

In the US, the working class voted against the oppressive federal government stranglehold that only works to get the upper crust richer and richer.

Peggy Noonan described it best in The Wall Street Journal:

The unprotected people of America, who have to live with Washington’s policies, rebelled against the protected, who make and defend those policies and who care little if at all about the unprotected.

In short, it’s a populist uprising of epic proportions.

The unprotected have told the protected that the rigged game is over; bend over…it’s your turn.

The tip of the iceberg

Look, despite self-interested press fearmongering, there is nothing wrong with populism.

The assertion of the rights and power of the people in their struggles against the privileged elite is a noble endeavour.

It’s a natural reaction to economic decline and the reality of no longer being heard by politicians who are supposed to represent their interests.

As Bernhard Klee wrote in the Daily Caller: ‘Populism is a natural force that forces leaders that behave like kings to reconnect with their people.

And there’s nothing wrong with economic nationalism, either. When one country sees another country benefiting at its expense, it fights back…or it dies.

Much of the global angst we’re seeing about Trump is the fact that the rest of the world is scared that, if the US sets its mind to becoming an inward-looking economic superpower again, they will suffer economically.

But countries such as Switzerland, Singapore, Japan and many more are all expressly run for the benefit of their own people. And that’s OK. It’s OK for the US, too.

So while the ruling class continues its propaganda campaign against popular sovereignty, this fierce pushback against their corrupt system of ‘globalisation’ is just getting started…

Populist movements are gaining steam in Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, France and Germany as voters in Europe head to the polls in the coming months.

That means you should expect the vitriol and propaganda campaigns against populism to pick up as the people attempt to take back power.

The Deep State’s supremacy is under attack. It’s going to use every weapon at its disposal to keep its death grip on the levers of power.

The war has just started. Trump was not a knockout punch.

Fight the power!

PS: And a quick, final note from Vern Gowdie on tomorrow’s big Special Investigation event…

TOMORROW: Australia’s ‘JFK Moment’

On January 17, 1961, President Dwight D Eisenhower finished his second term with a live farewell speech.

This speech came with a warning.

He a dark and sinister shift in Washington DC that had “grave implications” for America and the world.

Specifically, he exposed a group of unelected insiders that were trying to orchestrate a sort of ‘silent coup’ in America.

At the time, the insiders Ike warned about were mainly infesting America’s massive and growing military complex. But their tentacles were spreading.

This elite answered (and, to this day, answers) to no one: not voters, not Congress, and not even the president himself.

In 1961, General Eisenhower warned: ‘The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

Just three days after Ike’s farewell speech, John Fitzgerald Kennedy became the 35th president of the United States.

As soon as he took office, Kennedy took Eisenhower’s farewell warning seriously. He vowed to disrupt and disband this group before they became too powerful.

Following Eisenhower’s warning, JFK threatened to: ‘Splinter them into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds…

Soon after, he was assassinated.

Now, there are many controversies around JFK’s murder. Who did it? And why?

Unless something miraculous happens, we will never know for sure.

But one thing IS certain: Since that terrible day in Dallas, no other president has dared challenge that group of unelected insiders. Their power has only grown…and spread across the world…

As I will show in Port Phillip Publishing’s first Special Investigation tomorrow, Australia had our own ‘JFK Moment’ many decades ago. Few people noticed. Bu, this same group of insiders used it to seize control of our government, our resources…and your wealth and financial freedoms.

Tomorrow I expose this group.

And show you how to fight back…
