Trump Economic Bump: Confidence in economy highest in 8 years, up 17 points

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! From the Washington Examiner: Buoyed by the election of President-elect Trump, Americans are expressing the most confidence in the U.S. economy since the 2008 recession, according to a new survey. What’s more, financial advisors in another survey are also giddy about the prospects of the economy and stock market. Gallup’s latest survey showed a remarkable 17-point turnaround since just before the election. Confidence in the election was at a dismal negative 11 points right before the election. Now it as a positive 6, higher than at any point during President Obama‘s eight years. Gallup gives Trump, not Obama, the … Continue reading

WTF: Trump’s Likely Treasury Boss Is A Professional Swamp-Dweller, ex-Soros Fund Mgmt & Goldman Sachs

Interesting, is it not, that Trump may select Steve Mnuchin (or is it Munchkin), a longtime swamp dwelling high-level player at Goldman Sachs and Soros Fund Management (yes, you read that right ) as Treasury Secretary.  This pick makes the consideration of Romney for SoS look good. Among the many, many reasons we should beware anything to do with Goldman Sachs, note that they have an entire investment research division dedicated to taking the “man” out of “manufacturing”.  I wonder if this group has been helping Carrier and Ford eliminate jobs? source:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmDR29YNKqc — SafeSpace —

Waters (D-CA): I’m “Appalled” At Wall Street’s Reaction To Election

Democrats are reaching for “Any” leaf blowing in the wind if it rains on the election parade.  They sure never learned to be good sportsmen/women during their lifetimes.  Perhaps they need to set up conferences on sensitivity, personal responsibility, and accountability training during the holidays but not on the taxpayer dime.  Maybe it should be referred to EPA and CDC for investigation since this seems to be an air or water quality environmental hazard peculiar to the liberal minds. Seriously, Wall Street has a lot in common with a weird bookie.  It tends to blow hot and cold within minutes as … Continue reading

Tell Me It Ain’t So: Another Stimulus Package Coming?

Last night Mark Levin made a strong case AGAINST federally-funded infrastructure spending, correctly pointing out that such programs are paid for with dollars confiscated from the private sector. Yet it is undeniably true that our nation needs to repair or replace roads, bridges, airports, school buildings etc etc across the board — and since these are facilities that benefit the general public, the public should bear the cost. So how should president Trump fund his “Rebuild America” efforts? Are we in for another round of “you didn’t build that”? Steven Mufson at the L.A. Times (yeah, I know, the L.A. … Continue reading

Just Who Is Soros? Long Buried Interview With Leslie Cockburn Exhumed

Amoral or moral creature?  Total contradiction in one human body. This man has always been dangerous for decades with suppression of emotion and no personal acceptance of his actions as anything other than a means to make money. He has toppled many a country through banking panicking and  the stock markets even as he advised and created others.  Winning at all costs has always been his only goal.  Yet contradictorily helping those who have suffered in part over the years from the very acts he created.  Viewed as demigod by those who are looking for the fast millions and hated by those … Continue reading

Was It Divine Intervention

again, that saved America from the abyss, with a Trump presidency on the horizon? Consider this. 1.  The American Revolution was actively fought by only 3% of the population. Imagine that, taking on the world’s only superpower, with 3% on active duty, the rest split into thirds, for, against, and who cares. And we win. 2.  During the Battle of Long Island, when Washington’s troops were heavily outnumbered, starving, low on ammo, and shivering in the cold pouring rain. The morning came and with it, a freakish fog (the rest of NYC was clear) that allowed Washington to evacuate his army … Continue reading

Trump’s Contract With Americans

in his first 100 days as POTUS EXCERPT:  “Donald Trump is laying out delivered a long list of things he would do if elected president. During an appearance in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, he vows to act on them in the first 100 days in office. “On November Eighth, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities, and honesty to our government,” Trump says. “This is my pledge to you and if we follow these steps we will once more have a government of, by and for the people and importantly we will make America … Continue reading

Troubling But Reliable Economic Statistics

Income tax collections are a truly reliable method of determining national economic activity and trends. Businesses and many individuals pay quarterly; corporations pay withholding monthly, even weekly in the case of the largest  businesses.  So trends are fairly easy to spot in real-time. The US Treasury tells us collections are down and are trending lower. This is a clear picture of President Asshat’s “strong economy”, the one that’s been turned around so effectively during the past 7 point 5 years.  A vote for Hillaroid is a vote for more of the same.

Economics vs Political Platform

If voters want a better understanding of which candidate makes better economic sense to help our country dig out of its current hole, then we should be looking to experts (and of course measuring their words as well against our own experiences).  Just blindly accepting a candidate for any office as we have seen has been a disaster.  Staying up on topics of course for most of the country is less than enthusiastically received.  But, sometimes like important elections we had better be informed before we blindly place our trust in any want-to-be leader. So I went to one of … Continue reading

Hillaroid To The .01% Crowd: “I’m Kind Of Far Removed….”

Wikileaks just released the text of a few of Hillaroid’s $350K speeches to select audiences of investment bankers and stock manipulators. Allow me to present some of her statements, courtesy emails sent to John Podesta and revealed by the Russians Trump Wikileaks.  This is about as far into Hillaroid’s thinking as it is safe for a normal human to go (without wearing a hazmat suit and submitting to decontamination afterwards). *CLINTON ADMITS SHE IS OUT OF TOUCH* *Hillary Clinton: “I’m Kind Of Far Removed” From The Struggles Of The Middle Class “Because The Life I’ve Lived And The Economic, You … Continue reading

Eternal Pessimist/Realist David Stockman Lauds Trump’s Comments On The Fed’s “Bubble”

A looooonng article (typical Stockman) written immediately after the first Trump / Hillaroid debate …. but a worthy read. Stockman is a long-time and very public critic of the Fed’s interest rate policies, predicting that repeated rounds of “quantitative easing”, and zero to negative interest rates, are techniques that enrich players in the financial markets at the expense of the real producing economy and retail investors.  I can envision Ron Paul fist-pumping as he reads this one. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/the-donald-nailed-it-we-are-in-a-big-fat-ugly-bubble/ The Donald Nailed It: “We Are In A Big Fat Ugly Bubble” By David Stockman 9/27/2016 Most of the 90 minutes last … Continue reading

Clintons and Liberal Media Probably Hope This Doesn’t Get Out Now Before Election

    OOPSIE The Clintons can’t hide their abuse of Haiti any more!  In their own words – Clinton’s have run Haiti for 25 years and they want the Clintons ARRESTED.   –Uriel–  

What Trump Left On The Table

Last night Donald Trump missed several key opportunities to hammer Hillaroid.  Newt Gingrich seems to think this may have been a deliberate strategy and overall a good thing, but I disagree. The very first question from Lester Holt, which began with the statement about “eight consecutive years of job growth”, was left unchallenged. Trump could have pointed to the recent Harvard study that presents, in eight charts, the true nature of the Obama “recovery”. He could have mentioned that the unemployment number drops as labor force participation shrinks. But he did neither. When Hillaroid began lecturing us on her plans … Continue reading

Masters Of Understatement in a Weird Season

Here’s the latest from Bank of America, recognized experts on the paranormal. “The investment implications remain unclear”…… Well, I guess so! From Business Insider: BANK OF AMERICA: There’s a 20%-50% chance we’re inside the matrix and reality is just a simulation The thing is: We’d never know it anyway. In a note to clients out Tuesday, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said there’s a 20%-50% chance that we’re living in the matrix — meaning that the world we experience as “real” is actually just a simulation. The firm cites comments from Elon Musk, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Nick Bostrom’s seminal paper … Continue reading

Pinocchio Award to Federal Reserve on Presidential Voting Manipulations

  On September 17th I wrote an article showing how it is possible for the Federal Government to manipulate voting (http://wp.me/p3QtM7-ckH). At that time the Feds had not yet made their decision on interest rates. Today, their decision has been announced with strong dissention in the ranks. Bloomberg had this to say about the decision reached on Thursday in an article titled, “Divided Fed Holds Fire, Signals 2016 Rate Increase Still Likely” by Jeanna Smialek: “The sixth straight hold extends U.S. central bankers’ run of getting cold feet amid risks from abroad and inconsistent signs of economic strength. Now the … Continue reading

Oh For Monday Night

Y’all, the Gunny has been waiting for this coming Monday night like Weiner/BJ Bubba Clinton waiting on an underage intern to come strolling by. The Donald stepping on Cankles Clinton’s neck like a cowboy steps on a rattler’s neck will be awesome and on display for the entire world to see. Since we live in a “Kardashian” world, The Donald will have to win, not by points but rather, how America sees him as a President and who they feel is a leader. He fills a stadium, she barely fills a living room and those people are probably paid, therefore, … Continue reading

How the Federal Government Can Manipulate the General Presidential Election

  I came across some information that really points to how the federal government can and does affect voting despite Obama’s lying to the public and in support of Trump’s claim that it can be done.  NOT just vote rigging but in actual changes in an area that most people like me never ever concern ourselves with since we have no money to bet. Yes BET. The financial world has been allowed for far too long to run rampant over the economies of the world.  From stock markets to banks supposedly too big to fail, we have been taken on a leaky boat … Continue reading

Kasich and Reed Showing Where Their Interests Lie

  Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement can be read HERE. Per The Balance post: Pros The TPP boosts exports and economic growth, creating more jobs and prosperity for the 12 countries involved. It increases exports by $305 billion per year by 2025. U.S. exports would increase by $123.5 billion, focusing on machinery, especially electrical, autos, plastics and agriculture industries. It does this by removing 18,000 tariffs placed on U.S. exports to the other countries. The United States has already withdrawn 80% of these tariffs on foreign imports. The TPP evens the playing field. The agreement adds $223 billion a year to incomes … Continue reading
