SOS


FBI (and CIA?) hires "informant(s)" to infiltrate opposition's campaign ...

Liberal Privledge


Who can continually invent virtue signals yet call for the death of their opponents, drone on about impeaching them, continually misquote them, cook up cockamamie conspiracy theories about them, tag them with every "ists" there is, stage demonstrations outside their homes without consequences, steal and reveal their financial records, use the power of the government to try to distroy them, decide which laws need to be obeyed, suppress free speech when they feel like it, fulminate violent protests in order to depress dissent, tax and regulate their opponents into submission, encourage illegal voting to stay in power, concoct "legal" ways to launder money, reward bad behavior by voting blocs, paper over sexual crimes by their supporters, broom egregious crimes within their tribe, lie with impunity, openly disparage their country, abet foreign enemies, revel in their own self-importance ... and feel they are forever "entitled?"

Why it's Liberals ... that's who! (You knew it all along')

Pickle Nose



Headline: THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PUT A MOLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, TRUMP DEMANDS THAT DOJ INVESTIGATE

The cat is out of the bag. Apparently multiple wire taps and other surveillance was not enough for Obama's CiA/FBI/DOJ cabal. They also needed an "insurance policy, against Trump getting elected ... and then after the impossible happened, this insurance became a slow-motion coup. This is a scandal of shocking proportions and frightening implications. Although I might be a little ahead of the facts, what is emerging from the Obama swamp miasma is so profoundly unsettling that a few corners need to be rounded over to paint this grotesque picture. I actually suspect that the eventual truth will be far more damaging.

Now we know that am American citizen, Stefan Halper of Cambridge University (Howie Carr calls him "pickle nose"), was hired by Brennan of the CIA to infiltrate the Trump campaign to set a predicate for the Trump-Russia collusion charges. He approached Carter Page and George Pappadopolus with suggestions of dirt on the Clinton campaign. Basically Pickle Nose  entrapped these two naive low-level Trump operatives to set the stage for the later FISA court wire tap approvals.

This conspiracy even had a  deep-state name -- Operation Crossfire Hurricane. It was a classic Human Intelligence Operative. It was conducted against an opposition political party and, after the election, against a sitting president, Trump ... a cabal now led led  by Robert Mueller. The fact that Mueller has not, with his broad prosecutable mandate, veered into all this deep-state corruption , leads me up believe that Mueller s also dirty.

Wow! And I am certain that there is a lot more to come.

Afterward; For his efforts on behalf of Hiillary's campaign and the deep state, pickle nose goot between $400K and $1M of taxpayer monies.

The Great Divide


Hillary Clinton, looking down her nose, spoke at Yale's commencement over the weekend, saying that resilience will get her audience though Trump's tumultuous presidency  ... see: CNBC Article. What elitist pap! What pandering pettifoggery! This woman, abetted by the ivory-tower twits in New Haven, is basically reprising her snobbish "basket of deplorables" comment that lost her the last election. She and many in the robed crown there feel that they know more and feel more than the rest of us irredeemables.

This scene was, I'm sure, repeated numerous times with numerous liberal luminaries across America's campuses ... reassuring the graduates that they were better and smarter than those who had labored to set out the chairs and laundered the robes for these august ceremonies. They were assured that only they were the ones who could grasp the depth of the lefty platitudes being offered by these biggies. Some day they would become the speakers and honorary degree recipients in this never-ending cycle of our ruling class.

Just one problem. Donald Trump has opened the eyes of those who are unwashed to what a rotten job our elites like Hillary and Barack and George have been doing managing our country and our interactions with the rest of the world. They have noticed the "let them eat cake" attitude of their betters ... and have said "enough!" The battle lines in this great divide are forming. And, unless our puddin'-headed elites wake up, they will end up taking more lonely walks in the woods, calling the other half "Nazis" and consoling themselves with fine Chardonnay like that Chappaqua doyen.

Headwinds


Despite dire predictions, the US stock market is up over 38% since Trump was elected president. However, there are now serious headwinds that likely will keep the breaks on further dramatic advances in equities. They are:

- The Federal Reserve's easy money policy (Quantitative Easing) has stopped. In fact the Fed is well into the process of reducing its balance sheet by about 3.5 trillion dollars. This means that this much liquidity is being removed from our economy.

-Yes, Trump's fiscal measures (tax and regulation reform, trade terms, infrastructure spending) have boosted our economy and corporate earnings. But price-earnings ratios in the stock market are still above historic averages.

- The geo-political risks of Iran and North Korea still pose a dire risk to the world order and stock markets.

- The Fed is on track to raise interest rates multiple time both this year and next. Higher interest rates increase the discount that must be applied to corporate earnings.

- Robert Mueller's team of crack partisan investigators seem hell-bent on taking Trump down. This is a pall on his ability to keep things moving forward.

- Current trade negotiations with China and NAFTA could easily result is trade wars that would take at least a short-term to the US economy.

So, will the stock market make dramatic new highs despite these many headwinds? The odds seem against it. But then Trump has a way of defying the odds.

A Few Observations


- Obama's spooks, Brennam, Comey and Clapper, were so focused on undermining Trump's bid for the White House; I wonder how many real intelligence jobs went undone or underdone?

- Back in the day when salt was as valuable as gold, a bag of potato chips might have cost as much as $100

- If the Clinton Foundation and Global Initiative were not money laundering operations, how come they have gone quiescent after Hillary is no longer a shoe-in for the presidency.

- How does the DOJ's Rod Rosenstein still have a job since it has been revealed that he illegally back-dated by weeks the authorization to break down Manafort's  door at 3 AM to search his home and arrest him?

- Why is Turkey still in MATO?

- When the Federal Reserve Bank's primary missions of full employment and a 2% inflation rate are met, as they are now, it would seem that the Fed could swing to helping our balance of payments strategies and lowering the cost of financing our national debt.

Tech Dreams


Elon Musk spins many high-tech dreams almost on a daily basis. Colonizing Mars. Hyperloop transports. Underground highways. Electric autonomous vehicles. Satellite launching. Solar cells. Commercial building electricity storage and retrieval, Virtual reality. Flame throwing gun. Totally green economy. And, I'm sure, more to come ... next time the Tesla Model 3 production schedule slips.

These chimeras (and our utopian mindset) have made him a many-times-over billionaire. Is this good and will his idiosyncratic dreams prevail? Who am I to judge? My dreams upto now have turned to cottage cheese. So I must demur.
