Best election eva.

The democrat party is imploding.

They really don't know what to do when a Republican actually fights back.

Impeachment for a phone call...about the massive corruption of the Biden mafia.

And they think Hillary will save them.

"One of the key factors is that zero interest rate policies perpetuate overcapacity and zombifie economies."

Pushing on a string.

The slight reduction in FED balance sheet throughout 2018 did not "cause" the 4th quarter market sell-off since the FED continued to reduce its balance sheet, yet the stock market advanced.

The FED purchase of US Treasuries has reduced the amount of "safe" assets for banks to trade among themselves. This might help explain an inverted yield curve.

If banks can't trust other banks, then depositors should not trust banks. Unfortunately depositors are too complacent or ignorant to take action.

Speaking of whistleblowing.

Breitbart headline: "Dossier 2.0: ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint Relies on Soros-Funded ‘Investigative Reporting’ Group that Partnered with BuzzFeed"

Zero Hedge also reported that the intel community "quietly scrapped requirement for first hand knowledge."

The deeper one looks, the more it looks like a politically engineered hit job. Another coup attempt by a different means.

I think the wildest thing since Lehman was the overnight rate hitting 10%.

The economy was cruising along at 35,000 feet and suddenly both engines shut down. Immediately, the Fed captain came on and announced, "Not to worry, we just switched to emergency fuel."

Juuuust a bit outside...

Clinton to Run in 2020?

She's like a bad rash, you just can't get rid of

Britain’s Muslim of the Year says “Jihad is the only solution,” and was welcomed by Prince Charles. This proves the following:

  1. UK is screwed.

  2. "Extremist" Islam is the real Islam.

I vote for “ none of the above”. As the clock is ticking, the most important issue to deal with is climate change, which will require cooperation and agreement among all governments. Sadly, with the governments we presently have, little to nothing is being done. There is very little cooperation or agreement. They are all fighting yesterday’s problems, or each other. By the time they fully appreciate the problem, it will be too late to prevent significant suffering. It’s not as though they didn’t know it was coming either. Scientists have been studying and warning world governments for decades now. The response has been pathetic.
