Varney: The US dollar is king of the hill

October 12, 2019


STUART: AMERICA, THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN. YOU HEAR THAT A LOT, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE BOASTING, THOUGH, DOESN’T IT? WELL, IT MAY BE A LITTLE BUT IT’S NOT AN IDLE BOAST. WHEN IT COMES TO THE ECONOMY AND THE MARKETS, AMERICA IS INDEED WAY AHEAD OF THE PACK. CONSIDER THIS. AMERICA’S ECONOMY IS MUCH STRONGER THAN EUROPE OR JAPAN. WE’RE GROWING, THEY ARE CLOSE TO RECESSION. THAT HAS A BIG IMPACT. EUROPE’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS DOUBLE THAT OF AMERICA. 3.5% HERE, OVER 7% OVER THERE. EVEN CHINA HAS A HIGHER UNEMPLOYMENT RATE. OUR STOCK MARKET REMAINS CLOSE TO RECORD HIGHS. ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD, NOT SO GOOD. OUR BONDS PAY INTEREST, WHAT A CONCEPT. OVER THERE, THEY DON’T. IN FACT, YOU LEND THE GOVERNMENT MONEY OVER THERE AND THEY KEEP SOME OF IT AND THEY PAY NO INTEREST AT ALL. OUR CURRENCY, THE U.S. DOLLAR IS KING OF THE HILL. DESPITE IMPEACHMENT, RAMPANT TRUMP HATRED AND A DO-NOTHING OBSTRUCTIONIST CONGRESS, AMERICA IS DOING VERY, VERY WELL. YOU’RE GOING TO HEAR ABOUT THAT TONIGHT, WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP HOLDS A RALLY IN MINNEAPOLIS. HE’S GOING TO THE BELLY OF THE BEAST. A BASTION OF TRUMP HATERS. DON’T EXPECT HIM TO HOLD BACK. THIS WILL BE A DEFIANT TRUMP AND WHY NOT. IT IS HIS POLICIES WHICH HAVE DELIVERED THIS HIGH PERFORMANCE ECONOMY. IT’S HIS TAX CUTS AND DEREGULATION THAT DELIVERED NEARLY $10 TRILLION OF EXTRA WEALTH AND IT’S HIS FORCEFUL NEGOTIATING WHICH WE HOPE WILL DELIVER FAVORABLE TRADE DEALS. THE ELECTION’S ONLY A YEAR AWAY. THE PRESIDENT’S LIKELY OPPONENT IS A SOCIALIST WHO, IN MY OPINION, WOULD WRECK THE ECONOMY AND YOUR 401(k).

    This is so incredibly misleading. I'll preface this by saying I lean very far to the right. The dollar is strong because it's the world reserve currency. A privilege that we've abused and Trump is beating to a pulp. We have positive rates because we are the reserve currency. We have low unemployment because we manipulate the numbers. We have to because this Keynesian economy beats people into submission until they give up hope of employment so you exclude them from the statistic. Why don't you take into account how many jobs less fortunate people have to hold down in order to pay rent? The stock market is at record highs because we print a theoretically infinite supply of money (which steals value from actual productive segments of the economy) and pump it into the exchange. We can do this because… you guessed it… we are the world reserve currency. A privilege we will most certainly lose in the very near future. Trump is right about one thing… this really is fake news.

    If the Franc had more liquidity, it'd be better than the dollar at its price, but if it had more liquidity, it'd probably drop massively in value due to demand.

To me, each of the MSM anchors perfectly match the famous quote from "Terminator," describing its character: "It can't be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear."

    This political mouthpiece may paint everything as rainbows and butterflies…but, anyone who actually deals hands on with international currency exchanges knows that the grip we have isn’t nearly as dominant as it used to be.

    I love our country and our President, however the US dollar is not king of the hill for one reason and one reason only; our dollars are not US. Our dollars are federal reserve debt notes and until we crush the federal reserve and have our own dollars backed by gold and silver, as per the constitution, our dollars will forever be controlled by the deep state and be worthless.
    On the bright side, I'm confident our great President will go back to the gold standard. He is making all the right moves.
