"I'm (Not) With Her" - Clinton's Image Lowest In 24 Years...

Recent Gallup polling data paints a pretty dire picture for Hillary.

To anger a conservative, lie to him. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth…

Why Hillary Is Nervous: "More Leaks May Be Coming"

Hillary's communication director seemingly just admitted that they're frantically spinning the Russian hacking narrative to prepare the public for the next round of email leaks.

Meanwhile At The DNC

Presented with no comment... (ahead of today's roll-call vote)

Hillary Clinton: Class President Of A Failed Generation

After all this time, however, Hillary doesn’t get any of it. She thinks war is peace; deficits don’t matter; the baby boom is entitled to the social insurance they didn’t earn; and that the Fed’s serial bubble machine is leading the nation back to prosperity. But like the generation she represents, she has betrayed hergrand ideals over a lifetime of compromise, expediency, self-promotion and complacent acquisition of power, wealth and fame. She doesn’t deserve another stint at the podium - let alone the bully pulpit.

Democrats Will Be Campaigning Against Hillary Clinton

from WeAreChange:

Hillary Clinton is in Deep Trouble – “Hordes of Wall Street Executives” Descend Upon Philly

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Political pundits throughout the land are tripping over each other to compose the latest bland, uninsightful screed proclaiming the death of the Republican Party. This makes sense, because the primary purpose of a political pundit is to state the obvious years after it’s already become established fact to everyone actually paying attention.
Yes, of course, Trump winning the GOP nomination marks the end of the party as we know it. After all, some neocons are already publicly and actively throwing their support behind Hillary. While this undoubtably represents a major turning point in U.S. political history, many pundits have yet to appreciate that the exact same thing is happening within the Democratic Party. It’s just not completely obvious yet.

New Legislation Proposes To "Bail-In' Social Security

Even Social Security knows that they’re bankrupt and unable to keep their promises to taxpayers... Well, the government has figured out a solution. And it’s genius. Meet The SAVE-UP Act - “Secure, Accessible, Valuable, Efficient Universal Pension Accounts Act”.

Italy Races To Arrange €5 Billion Bailout For Monte Paschi Before Friday's Stress Test

Italy is scrambling to secure a privately-backed bailout of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the most exposed of the country’s troubled lenders, including a plan to raise €5bn of fresh capital so as to avert nationalisation, the FT reports. The bank needs to obtain some €5 bilion in capital ahead of Friday's stress test, or else a dire "contagion" scenario could unfold that could impair not only all Italian banks, but promptly spread first to France and then to Germany...

Previewing The Day's Big Event: What To Expect From The Apple's Earnings Report

When it comes to AAPL, the company is truly in a class of its own. And while in the past it helped propel the S&P500 profitability almost singlehandedly (it was responsible for 7% of total S&P earnings in 2015), this has reverse, and now AAPL is set to be the single biggest detractor from S&P growth. Here is what to look for and what Wall Street expects when AAPL reports earnings at 1:30pm Pacific today...

(Con)fidence Game

The financial and economic world in 2016 is, more than anything, a confidence game (pun intended). The year started with confidence severely shaken, so gasoline (as one real economic variable) and hiding intervention (the further hint of desperation) are more likely to have lasting negative effects than effusive but unbacked mainstream praise for the nth year in a row.

Are Apple Options Traders Too Complacent Ahead Of Earnings?

Despite the stock's recent demise, and 'shocking' analyst downgrades, Apple options traders appear exceptionally calm ahead of tonight's earnings report...

Stocks Slide After Japan's "Helicopter Money" Plan Leaks, Underwhelms

At the same time that the Nikkei released its latest "market response" trial ballon, where it posted an article around 2am local time clearly meant for US market consumption according to which BOJ officials "were said to be leaning more toward easing", the same Nikkei also published a preview of what Japan's helicopter money may look like. There is just one problem: at first read, and judging by the market's reaction, it appears to be rather underwhelming.

These Are The Best And Worst U.S. Cities To Own A House

For those lucky Americans who can afford to own a house instead of being stuck renting the New Normal American dream where they are prohibited from peddling fiction as their annual rent increases by 10% or more each year, here is the breakdown of the best and worst cities for home price appreciation in the U.S.

It's 2am In Japan, Time For Nikkei To Drop Another Tape Bomb

Yesterday at 2am local time, Japan's Nikkei reported a doubling of stimulus being proposed (to 6 trillion yen) after Goldman suggest 3 trillion was not enough. That spiked USDJPY briefly. Today, at 2am, Nikkei decided to try it again... announcing that "BoJ officials said to be leaning more toward easing," and sure enough USDJPY

Another Ugly Auction: Treasury Sells $34BN in 5Y Paper With Big Tail, Lowest Bid To Cover Since 2009

The hits just keep on coming. After yesterday's ugly 2 Year auction, and following last month's less than stellar, tailing 5 Year auction, moments ago the Treasury sold $34 billion in 5 Year paper in what was another woeful issuance, one where the high yield of 1.18% was a substantial tail of 1.6bps to the 1.164% When Issued, and whose Bid to Cover dropped again, reaching 2.27, the lowest since September 2009.

Why Swap Spreads Are Suddenly Blowing Out And Why This Is Good For Treasuries

Over the past week, market watchers have noticed something which otherwise could be seen as a warning signal: there has been a dramatic move in swap spreads space, notably a substantial widening in recent days from what was until recently record tight - and negative - levels, coupled with a blow out in FX swaps, where the EURUSD has seen its cross-currency swap slide -3 bps today to -48 bps, the widest since July 2012. What does this mean, and what are the implications? Read on for the explanation.

Nigeria Says "Don't Panic, Banks Are Fine" Amid Currency Collapse, Inflation Spike Concerns

A month ago we warned of the looming hyperinflation coming to Nigeria (as well as much of Africa). It appears, following the central banks' rate hike to a record 14% (reach for yield anyone) in an attempt to stall the ongoing currency collapse, that Emefiele is worried, warning of "concern over headline inflation spike." Perhaps most worrying though, amid the chaos, Emefiele advised depositors in banks "to go about your business," adding that there was "no need to panic or worry." Hhhmm..

David Einhorn Is Back In The Doldrums With Q2 Loss As Amazon Short Stings: Full Letter

"Most of the quarterly losses came from the short book. An undisclosed oil fracking short (not the Mother-Fracker) was our biggest loser, followed by Amazon, which reported a stronger quarter than we expected. In the long book, Apple (AAPL) and Macy’s were material losers. The earnings estimates for  AAPL continue to fall."

Alas, Cartel, The Walls Are Closing In

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
On this COMEX options expiration day – and last day of this week’s “COT Report cycle,” whose result will be published Friday afternoon – my guess is the “commercials” were yet again unsuccessful in covering their shorts. Which likely, will push them a giant step further toward their inevitable, spectacular demise. To wit, yesterday’s sharp key reversal, from the prototypical, blatantly orchestrated “Sunday Night Sentiment”; “2:15 AM”; and 8:20 AM COMEX open smashes, resulting in silver prices being higher as I write, than they were Friday afternoon.
The Cartel – er, “commercials” – had a window of minutes to cover their shorts before yesterday’s “surprise” silver surge. And in my view, as was the case following May’s “FOMC Minutes Attack,” it was that very attempt to cover shorts that caused prices to surge, and yet again foil their manipulative plans.

WHAT’S GOING ON??? Record Swiss Gold Flow Into The United States

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
There was a huge trend change in U.S. gold investment in May. Something quite extraordinary took place which hasn’t happened for several decades. While Switzerland has been a major source of U.S. gold exports for many years, the tables turned in May as the Swiss exported a record amount of gold to the United States.
How much gold? A lot. The Swiss exported 50 times more gold in May than their monthly average (0.4 mt) since 2015:
As we can see, the Swiss gold exports to the United States are normally less than 0.5 metric ton a month. And for many months there weren’t any gold exports. However, something big changed in May as Swiss gold exports surged to 20.7 mt (665.500 oz).

Inside A Secret Government Warehouse Prepping For Societal Collapse

by Tricia Drevets, Off The Grid News:
It sounds like something out of a Cold War era movie. Boxes of medical supplies stacked high in government warehouses to help citizens in the event of a public health emergency.
However, this huge stockpile is very real. It is called the Strategic National Stockpile, and according to the CDC website, “Once Federal and local authorities agree that the SNS is needed, medicines will be delivered to any state in the U.S. in time for them to be effective. Each state has plans to receive and distribute SNS medicine and medical supplies to local communities as quickly as possible.”
For security reasons, the location and the number of warehouses that comprise the SNS are classified information – as is much of what is in them. “If everybody knows exactly what we have, then you know exactly what you can do to us that we can’t fix,” Greg Burel, director of the program told National Public Radio in a recent interview. “And we just don’t want that to happen.”

by Bernie Suarez, The Daily Sheeple:
People who don’t trust government, those who think on their own and tend to question what they hear, by now are all becoming experts at identifying false flag staged events. With so many recent staged psyop events in the news lately many of us are getting a lot of practice at this. But have you considered that the script has become more complex than you think? Have you considered that you (we) are being fooled in some way as we speak? Have you taken into account that the events happening today are all happening in a post-Jade Helm revelation AI era? Today’s events are happening in a very sophisticated world of unimaginably deep levels of political corruption actively at work and deeply focused on removing all of our rights and freedoms and cementing their new global order. This complex and deep reality alone is something many people refuse to face; and without facing this you’ll never be able to peel and dig deeper into the deep state’s structure, mind and mechanisms that are behind these chaotic staged psyop false flag events.
