Hillary Clinton Slams Conspiracy Theorists with a Conspiracy Theory of Her Own

from The Anti Media:
Hillary Clinton’s recent “alt right” speech marks a new and dangerous low in what has become race to the bottom – and, should she be elected, it has ominous foreign policy implications as well.
Alarmed that Trump is reaching out to the African-American community, Mrs. Clinton tried to make the case that the GOP candidate is a apologist for such groups as the Ku Klux Klan and an obscure amalgam she dubbed the “alt right.” As she named this latter group, there was a significant silence, a pause in the cheering: perhaps her audience thought she was having a senior moment of the intestinal variety.

The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality Of Having No Real Electoral Choices

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a police state. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

Do Newly Built Skyscrapers Signal The Top Of The Stock Market?

In the market, extreme optimism results in price bubbles. One of the real-life manifestations of extremely positive social mood is the construction of enormous buildings. Market tops and skyscrapers often seem to emerge simultaneously, because both phenomena are the result of the illusion of infinite prosperity. But extreme psychological conditions do not last very long...

An Academic Tries To Explain The Yield Curve, Says "Gloom" Is Irrational

To the academics, “gloom” is irrational and thus requires translation into math to become somehow backwards explanatory for why the economy that “should be” isn’t. In the actual economy, “gloom” is properly called reality. In this world, people know all-too-well that jobs disappeared during and after the Great Recession and never came back. No amount of asset price manipulation can possibly make up that difference. This math is finally welcoming economists to that long run, a place their patron saint, Keynes, said didn’t exist.

Gold Withdrawals From The NY Fed Accelerate, Hit 388 Tons Since 2014

While central banks assure the population that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to paper money, which may or may not soon be banned if certain Harvard economists have their way, they have been quietly accelerating their withdrawals of gold from the biggest centralized depository of global gold in the world: the New York Federal Reserve.

Debt, Deficits & Economic Warnings

The processes that fueled the economic growth over the last 30 years are now beginning to run in reverse, and when combined with the demographic shifts in the U.S., the impact could be far more immediate and prolonged than the media, economists and analysts are currently expecting...It is simply a function of the math.

Michael Lewitt: "We're In The Late Stages of Ponzi Finance"

“They’ve tried to solve the debt crisis by printing trillions of dollars of more debt, and somehow they expect the economy to grow under the weight of those burdens. We’re just borrowing new money to pay back old money. I would say that we’re in the late stages of Ponzi finance.”

Stanley Fischer's Bizarre Justification For Negative Rates

"Well, clearly there are different responses to negative rates. If you’re a saver, they’re very difficult to deal with and to accept, although typically they go along with quite decent equity prices. But we consider all that and we have to make trade-offs in economics all the time and the idea is the lower the interest rate the better it is for investors."

Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule.  So where are they going: the top state destination for refugee influx are the states of Michigan and California.

Is Clinton's Lead Over Trump As Large As Advertised?

There seems to be a lot of smug certitude that Trump is definitely destined to lose the election. We are not so sure. At the very least we would think that the race between Trump and Clinton is far tighter than it appears according to recent polls. This bring us back to a point we mentioned last week: the market is not pricing in the “risk” of an election upset.
