I vote for manufactured dissent. David's family bailed out Trump's Taj Mahal in 1990 and I find Trump's Fed criticisms to be criticisms of specific Fed policy rather than criticisms of the Fed existing or the US government relationship with the Fed.

Are Trump's Fed comments really moving the market?

The guy in this tweet is not part of the British Rothschild family. People mistake this often. Kind of annoying

I see, good point. It's kinda bizarre then that this guy works on such politically impactful stuff and has even interned at the White House. https://sciencewritersmeeting.org/2012/speakers/david-m-rothschild.html

What if the crown owns the US?

Those that own the crown also own US, so sure. America wasn't even free for 200 years, then it was recaptured.

The Rothschilds, through their multiple bailouts over multiple centuries. https://m.imgur.com/reLdwNx

Interesting about the Taj Mahal, I didn't know that. You might be right that it's mostly theater, or that they're only disagreeing on nitpicking stuff. I don't think Trump's comments are moving the market. The market is just ready to pop, Trump or not.

Here's some more on the Taj Mahal bailout: https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-wilbur-ross-commerce-20161208-story.html

Ross, then an investment banker working for Rothschild Inc., helped bondholders negotiate with Trump, whose finances were unraveling. The final deal reduced Trump's ownership stake in the Taj but left him in charge, and bondholders were unhappy when Ross presented the plan.

"Why did we make a deal with him?" one asked, according to Rosenberg's book.

Ross insisted that Trump was worth saving.

"The Trump name is still very much an asset," he said.

Trump probably is playing the part of the controlled opposition. The criticisms are not directed entirely on the FED as a whole. Keep in mind, the FED can completely destroy the economy in a day if they wanted to and have tried when Andrew Jackson ended the central banks. THough it wasn't considered the FED, today, it was a private bank that acted very much like they do today.
