Justin’s note: As you know, we don’t shy away from controversy or “politically incorrect” opinions here at Casey Research.
We’ve been telling you what you need to hear – the stuff not covered in the mainstream media – so you can prepare for (and profit from) what’s in store for America.
It’s all in preparation for this Wednesday’s landmark event, Totally Incorrect: LIVE, where our founder Doug Casey will sit down with Crisis Investing chief analyst Nick Giambruno to reveal his five biggest predictions for 2019 and beyond.
Today, we’re continuing this theme and passing the baton to Nick, who says Donald Trump is currently being set up to fail:
The Deep State is going to make sure Trump goes down as the worst president in U.S. history… by pinning the impending stock market collapse on him.
Read on to see why…

The Establishment is setting up Donald Trump…
The mainstream media hates him. Hollywood hates him. The “Intellectual Yet Idiot” academics hate him.
Most critically, the CIA hates him. So does the rest of the Deep State, or the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy.
I think there’s a very simple reason for this: He’s threatening to take away its livelihood.
Trump wants to make nice with Putin and the Russians. But countering the so-called “Russian threat” is how many thousands of Deep State bureaucrats make a living.
These people feed off a $1 trillion-plus military/security budget. Playing nice with the Russians would kill their jobs.
Trump has said:
We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments.
Toppling regimes is the CIA’s bread and butter. No wonder it hates him.
Though, the feeling is mutual.
Trump has used plenty of sharp words to describe the “intelligence community.” He’s also the first president since John F. Kennedy to openly take on the CIA.
Going forward, the Deep State has three main cards to play against Trump…
- The delegitimization card
- The Herbert Hoover card
- The John F. Kennedy card
If one doesn’t work, it’ll escalate to the next.
Let’s start with the delegitimization card.
As you may know, the U.S. – specifically the CIA – has helped orchestrate multiple color-coded revolutions around the world over the past 20 years:
- The Bulldozer Revolution in Serbia (2000)
- The Rose Revolution in Georgia (2003)
- The Orange and Euromaidan revolutions in Ukraine (2004 and 2014)
- The Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan (2005)
- The Cedar Revolution in Lebanon (2005)
- The Green Revolution in Iran (2009)… though that one didn’t work.
- The Saffron Revolution in Myanmar (2007)
All of these AstroTurf revolutions have one thing in common. In each case, George Soros’ non-governmental organizations (NGOs) helped delegitimize the targeted government.
Here’s how it worked: Soros’ NGOs would help fund and organize “professional protesters.” Then they’d use specific color branding to help rally others to their cause.
The pattern was predictable. Now it’s playing out in the U.S.
It smells to me like the CIA and George Soros’ NGOs are trying to foment a “color revolution” in the U.S., just like they’ve done in numerous foreign countries.
The U.S. color revolution already has a color. It’s purple (the mix of red and blue, i.e., red and blue states).
Hillary Clinton has worn purple in almost every public appearance since Trump’s election. There’s a flood of social media postings about the color purple. So the branding is already done. And, of course, the professional protesters financed and organized by George Soros are already there.
Of course, there are legitimate complaints against Trump. But the usual suspects are using their normal tricks to remove a government they don’t like. It just so happens that, this time, the target government is in Washington D.C., instead of Eastern Europe or the Middle East.
Still, I don’t think the Deep State is going to win with the delegitimization card. In fact, it’s already moving on to the next option: the Herbert Hoover card.
