On Monday, Trump held a meeting with John Allison, the former CEO of the bank BB&T and of the libertarian think tank the Cato Institute. We have seen several reports indicating that Trump is considering Allison for Treasury secretary.
On the campaign trail, Trump often questioned the future of the Federal Reserve’s political independence. In line with these comments, Allison wants to abolish Federal Reserve all together and go back to the gold standard.In fact, Allison takes that rhetoric one step further. While acting as the head of the Cato Institute, Allison published several thesis indicating that the Federal Reserve was obsolete and needed to be abolished as it restricts power from the people and allows billionaire cronies to run banks globally.
“I would get rid of the Federal Reserve because the volatility in the economy is primarily caused by the Fed,” Allison wrote in 2014 for the Cato Journal. As an alternative, Allison argues that if we allow the market to regulate itself, it would be preferable to the Federal Reserve harming the stability of the financial system. “When the Fed is radically changing the money supply, distorting interest rates, and over-regulating the financial sector, it makes rational economic calculation difficult,” Allison wrote. “Markets do form bubbles, but the Fed makes them worse.” The United States never had a persistent, ongoing problem with inflation until the Federal Reserve was created in 1913.

A white nationalist symbol has made its way into the latest back and forth in the 2016 presidential campaign. Amid the flurry of statements about Hillary Clinton calling "half" of Donald Trump supporters a "basket of deplorables," — a reference to some of the Republican nominee's supporters who ascribe to views popular among the white nationalist-linked alt-right movement — informal Trump adviser and confidante Roger Stone tweeted a picture of the poster from the movie "The Expendables" altered as "The Deplorables." Donald Trump, Jr., one of Trump's sons, posted the same image on Instagram. The origin of the image is unclear.
The Photoshopped faces in the picture include Trump, running mate Gov. Mike Pence, Gov. Chris Christie, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Ben Carson, both of Trump's eldest sons, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, alt-right icon Milo Yiannopoulos, and Stone himself. Prominently featured over Trump's right shoulder: popular white nationalist symbol, Pepe the Frog.
"Pepe the Frog is a huge favorite white supremacist meme," Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center told NBC News of the meme. While Pepe the Frog may not be a household name, the meme is known to members of the alt-right on the internet. "It's constantly used in those circles," Beirich said. "The white nationalists are gonna love this because they're gonna feel like 'yeah we're in there with Trump, there's Pepe the Frog.'" Pepe the Frog, a cartoon amphibian, was popularized on the website 4chan, and became associated with the neo-Nazi movement.

Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump continues to lead in most of the polls, with his popularity soaring as the candidate speaks controversial truths that his running mates wouldn't dare vocalize.
So far, Trump has distanced himself from large corporate donors in an attempt to prove that he has no controllers, voiced his concerns about the link between the autism epidemic and the administering of too many vaccines at once, and now, for a brief moment, he's seemingly taken on the world's most evil corporation: biotech seed giant Monsanto.
Yesterday, Trump's Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, retweeted a post alleging that Iowans have had way too much ‘Monsanto corn’ that was ‘creating issues in their brain’. The tweet, which was promptly deleted, was retweeted by Trump’s account after reports broke of a new Iowa poll showing presidential candidate Ben Carson had taken the lead among Iowa caucus-goers.’
