As I’ve been watching the election results come in for a fixed Two Party election I didn’t think I would care about, to my surprise, I feel sick.
SGTreport contributor PTS e-mailed moments ago stating the following:
I guess the only question was whether we were going into the Economic Crash at Warp 3 or Warp 9. “Looks like it’s Warp 9, Mr. Sulu!” This makes me want to go out tomorrow and buy more food, water, bullets, and PMs.
I didn’t think I’d care about this election given that the fix was in either way. But the fact that the impeachable, imposter and international war criminal Barry Soetoro is going to be allowed to stay in the White House, put there again by the stupidest populace on the planet, makes me seriously want to move out of this country ASAP.
ABC News just interviewed a young caucasian woman from Wisconsin in Times Square who said she voted for Obama. When asked why she responded, “I like his stance on health care” (Ed. Note: National bankruptcy by fascist mandate) “and women’s issues,” (Ed. Note: On-demand taxpayer sponsored abortion) “and I also like his foreign policy.” (Ed. Note: Endless unconstitutional wars and the indiscriminate bombing of men, women and children all over the planet).
And there you have it gentleman, America is collectively idiotic and we are therefore officially screwed. But we knew that when the country turned its back on Ron Paul, long before tonight.
Not that any of us believed Mitt Romney would bring us any real change. But now this crap-filled Republic will surely get what it deserves. And those brainwashed fools who voted for the Imposter in Chief again will finally get what they’ve got comin’. And it’s gonna hurt. Sadly, it’s gonna hurt us all.

S&P futures are now unchanged from Monday's close - having lost 14 points from the close and over 18 from the highs. Meanwhile, gold is soaring and the USD is being sold. It would appear that as the odds of an Obama victory rises that the fiscal cliff reality becomes even more critical BUT given Bernanke's four-more-years, they have no need to do anything about it since he will just monetize away... Gold realizes its the 'stock' and equities have already priced in the 'flow' but forgot to price in the fiscal cliff (as we have noted)... We assume Schumer will be on the phone first thing in the morning demanding moar doing his job...
Still think your Vote Counts?...
RELATED: Oops: NBC Accidentally Publishes Election Results Showing Obama Win
Screenshots poured in from several listeners of elections results posted at FoxNews.com, apparently by mistake, with millions more votes than any source has yet reported, all hours before any polls closed.
Instead of the hundreds of thousands of votes registered at the time of publishing (6:20 pm Central) at Fox, CNN, NBC and others, this glitch post at Fox News showed some 42 million votes for Obama and 32 million votes for Romney, under the “It’s a Wrap: Campaigning Done, Romney, Obama Await the Verdict,” again long before polls closed. The unconfirmed numbers showed Obama well ahead in the erroneous popular vote count.
Was it an honest mistake, or a sign of larger shenanigans?

Investigative journalist – BBC & The Guardian – Greg Palast joins Thom to talk about voter suppression and disenfranchisement in swing-state Ohio.
The efficacy of the voting process is being called into question today as people report massive vote fraud on social media websites.
Twitchy.com has posted a number of Tweets from people who say they either voted more than once or somebody had previously voted using their names.
“A friend of mine (former GOP official) showed up to vote in VA this morning and was informed he’d already done so. He had not,” one tweet complained. “Voted voted voted! I voted three times,” said another.
A Republican voter in Nevada was arrested last week for attempting to vote twice. Nevada’s Election Integrity Task Force was investigating other alleged incidents of vote fraud in the state.

Evidence of Electronic Vote Fraud Pours In from Both Liberal and Conservative Sources
NBC news just announced that it projects a victory for Obama in Ohio. Which means the Florida vote is now moot, and which means Barack Obams has been relected as president of the US.
Tonight it's all Obama-corns and Biden-faeries but the market is already 'adjusting' to the new old new normal regime. Unfortunately in 'Obama II - This Time Its Different' the odds of going over the Fiscal Cliff just got real. As we noted here (and in more detail here and here), there is now a 55% chance we go over the cliff (given the status quo of no compromise) and the market is a long way from pricing that kind of GDP shock...
It’s really hard to ignore what’s happening today; the election phenomenon is global. The entire world seems fixated on this belief that it actually matters who becomes the President of the United States anymore... or that one of these two guys is going to ‘fix’ things. Fact is, it doesn’t matter. Not one bit. And we’ll show you why mathematically... This is not a political problem, it’s a mathematical one. Facts are facts, no matter how uncomfortable they may be. Today’s election is merely a choice of who is going to captain the sinking Titanic.
From the moment the polls closed around 7ET, S&P 500 futures have been leaking lower. At 1417, S&P futures are now over 11 points off the post-Ohio-rumor spike highs having given all of that spike back. Treasury yields are down 3bps or so and commodities are bleeding back lower (Gold $1707). The USD is strengthening too as AUD weakens. Interestingly things seems to be going Obama's way broadly in the polls (even though Intrade is falling) which also lends credence to the spike in stocks earlier when it appeared things were going Romney's way...

Using brash ingenuity, criminals out to steal your personal data are tampering with the checkout machines in department stores, supermarkets, gas stations and even your doctors’ office.
Their prime target: your debit card account number and personal identification number.
Thieves use ruses, such as posing as repairmen to alter and corrupt payment terminals — installing skimmers and storage devices that capture account numbers from the magnetic strip on a card as well as the PIN numbers the customer keys in.

America Has Already Lost Tuesday’s Election … Germans see the US election as a battle between the good Obama and the evil Romney. But this is a mistake. Regardless of who wins the election on Tuesday, total capitalism is America’s true ruler, and it has the power to destroy the country. – Jakob Augstein/Der Spiegel
Dominant Social Theme: Capitalism is the US’s naked, merciless driver.
Free-Market News: In this article in Der Spiegel, written by columnist Jakob Augstein, we observe the meme that “isms” are different and powerful. Capitalism is different than communism, which is different than socialism, etc.
We have some difficulties with this argument. But first we’ll review more of the perspective provided by this article – very revealing of the European media mindset – and then return to the above point in our conclusion.

The U.S. Treasury quietly warned at the end of a statement issued last Wednesday that it expects the federal government to hit its legal debt limit before the end of this year–which means before the new Congress is seated–and that “extraordinary measures” will be needed before then to keep the government fully funded into the early part of 2013.
On Aug. 2, 2011, President Obama signed a deal he had negotiated with congressional leaders to increase the debt limit of the federal government by $2.4 trillion. But, now, after only 15 months, almost all of that additional borrowing authority has been exhausted.

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President John Williams said the central bank may buy more than $600 billion in bonds by extending its third round of quantitative easing well into next year.
The Federal Open Market Committee last month affirmed its decision in September to buy $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities each month without specifying the total size or duration of the purchases. Williams, who holds a vote on policy this year, was among the first Fed officials to advocate open- ended bond buying.
“It should be at least that big but I would think it would probably be bigger given my view on how slow the economy is going,” Williams said yesterday, referring to his Aug. 31 comment that the Fed should purchase $600 billion in bonds in a third round of asset purchases.

Nine out of ten people we’ve met who expressed an interest in being a survivalist or prepper, frankly, did not know their own mind. Like at the poker table, to win you must either be all in, or don’t bother playing. You can’t get to home plate if you keep one foot on third base.
Often the problem comes not with someone’s own head, but with the heads of people they are attached to – wives, children, mothers, fathers, pets, friends, bosses, mild acquaintances. We could recount endlessly the amount of times we met people who were conflicted by others, who vainly labored at – or sought others to labor at – convincing their son, daughter, dog, cat, minster, rabbi, imam, boss, wife, husband that they should join in the bug-out.
Truth is, everyone of the aforementioned entities has a strong vested interest in keeping you in the system. It is like asking a butcher if it’s good to eat meat.

After the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) closed its initial public offering (IPO) of 5 million silver exchange-traded receipts (ETRs) on Monday, the firm announced5 that it has purchased over 3 million ounces of silver for its Canadian Silver Reserves Program, which allows interested parties to own the white metal in its physical form without requiring them to arrange for delivery or storage of the metal.
With this program, the RCM aims to provide an exchange-traded investment vehicle that tracks the price of the metal while making it possible for institutional and retail investors in all Canadian provinces and territories to invest in physical silver.
As part of its efforts to achieve this goal, last Monday the RCM reached an agreement6 with a syndicate of underwriters led by TD Securities and National Bank Financial under which those organizations will purchase ETRs and resell them to the public.
