'Twittergate' Should Have You Rethinking Your Portfolio

by Andrew Zatlin

Trump's been out of the White House for nearly two years...

Yet his critics are still going after him.

Why are so many still laser-focused on his downfall?

Perhaps surprisingly, the answer could lead us to profits.

For a transcript of this video, see below. This transcript has been lightly edited for length and clarity.

'Twittergate' Should Have You Rethinking Your Portfolio

When Elon Musk bought Twitter, one of his first moves involved releasing documents that revealed how the FBI colluded with company executives to manipulate dialogue (a saga many are calling "Twittergate").

Now, this news didn't make me clutch my pearls – I'm well aware that the government often interferes and runs propaganda.

But it did make me wonder: Did this collusion install President Joe Biden over Donald Trump? And what was it that Trump did that scared off the powers that be?

If we can answer that, then we can figure out what agendas and policies are being put forward...

And that can signal to us, as investors, where to put our capital.

The Drive to Keep Trump Down

Love him or hate him, it's hard to argue there's a relentless drive to keep Trump away from power.

First, there was "Russiagate" – an investigation into Trump's ties with Russian officials. Even the New York Times admitted there was nothing of substance there. It was just mudslinging.

Now we've got Twittergate, and the curtain's been pulled back. Now we can see the efforts to block Trump and actively swing votes against him.

Meanwhile, it's been a different story for Biden and his family...

A Scandalous Laptop

In the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, a laptop was discovered belonging to Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son. Not only did it contain salacious details and pictures of Hunter's life, but there were indications that Joe himself was into some shady dealings.

Typically, this discovery would prompt journalists to ask questions – for example:

Why was Hunter, someone with zero legitimate work experience, given $1 billion by a Chinese government bank to start an investment fund? Why was he installed on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, earning millions, while his dad was vice president (and playing point for President Obama on Ukraine)?

Biden says he didn't know about this, but come on. The laptop has pictures of both Bidens golfing in Ukraine and flying back and forth to China on Air Force Two.

This discovery clearly shows Joe got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. But what came out of this whole fiasco?

Shut It Down

Nothing! That's right. It was shut down.

The FBI had the laptop, hid it, then started a disinformation campaign once it reached the public eye.

Furthermore, companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter were told to shut it down. Any discussion of the subject would be turned off.

So let's recap:

A smoking gun laptop is found. It has evidence of wrongdoing by a presidential candidate. Yet all the powers that be rush to cover it up.

Meanwhile, Trump can't escape the bad press. In fact, his critics are still going after him. They've raided his home... They want to expose his taxes...

And any time someone refers to the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, they use the word "insurrection." That's because, according to our Constitution, anyone convicted of insurrection is disqualified from running for public office.

For six years now, there's been a hard push to stop Trump.

But let's take a step back and focus on the big picture...

The Big Picture

You see, Trump interrupted an initiative 20 years in the making.

Twenty years ago, a junior senator from Illinois named Barack Obama started his journey to become president. What agendas did he agree to so he could be put in charge?

Obviously, they're the same ones that Biden agreed to, and maybe the ones Trump didn't agree to...

Because, unlike Obama and Biden, Trump can't be controlled.

Ultimately, it's about preventing Trump from playing some kind of spoiler role. There's money here, big money. Obama and Biden enabled certain policies, but Trump didn't.

And over the next few weeks, I want to learn more about who tried (and failed) to control Trump, and who's controlling Biden now...

Because having that knowledge can help me position my portfolio – and yours.

In the meantime, we're in it to win it. Zatlin out.
