Does Trump Have a Fighting Chance Against the Establishment

by Seth Ferris, New Eastern Outlook:
When countries are in trouble they always react the same way. If they have economic troubles their governments take ever greater control of the public finances, whether through austerity or centrally-dictated spending programmes. When there is civil strife the government calls out the army and restricts liberties to regain control of the situation. When wars are taking place elections are cancelled so the government of the day remains in power to deal with the conflict.
These measures have the effect of entrenching the “Establishment”, whoever that may be at a given time, and excluding others. People can only play a part in addressing the problems of the country at the whim of the Establishment, with appointments replacing elections in many such scenarios. Only when the Establishment is secure does it allow greater freedom of debate, action and participation, which are regarded as the hallmarks of stable countries.

Popular Vote Reality Check

No amount of Soros financed riots is going to change the outcome. Time to retreat into your six safe spaces and break out the coloring books and play doh. Isn’t it funny how the left wing media were outraged when Trump said he wouldn’t agree to the outcome before seeing the vote. Now they question the outcome based on no facts or basis for argument.

Obama, Clinton, And Sanders Could Stop The Riots But They Just Watch

by Daisy Luther, Activist Post:
Is it just me or have you also noticed that Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and President Obama have been silent about the protests?
The very people who have the power to stop these protests and riots with just a few well-spoken words have been completely silent on the issue.
Hillary Clinton
During her concession speech, Clinton said, “We must accept this result, and then look to the future. … Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
After that, she has been mum on the entire thing.

Bonds Are 'Cheapest' To Stocks In A Year As Cross-Asset-Class Correlation Collapses

The last time bonds were this 'cheap' to stocks, 10Y yields collapsed 45bps and the S&P plunged 13% (before a panicced wave of coordinated central bank buying saved the world)...

Europe's "Massively Over-Subscribed" Long-Dated Bond Bloodbath

Remember all those super-long-duration bonds that every Tom, Dick, and Henri bought with both hands and feet earlier in the year? Headlines roared of "six time oversubscribed", or "four times oversubscribed" as Draghi and his entourage 'guaranteed' to keep everything profitable - whatever it takes. Well, things have gone a little disastrous in the last few days as Irish and Belgian 'century' bonds, Austria 70 year, Italian and Spanish 50 year bond prices are collapsing.

Italian Bond Yields Explode To 18-Month Highs As Deutsche Sees 'Italeave' Odds At 60%

With TARGET2 imbalances at record highs, Italian bonds yields are exploding higher (despite Draghi's foot on the scales) following Trump's populist-encouraging victory just a few shorts weeks ahead of Italy's referendum vote. The probability of reform rejection (and implicitly 'Italeave') is now 60%, according to Deutsche Bank, with complexity due to the country’s growth-banks-politics nexus: disappointing growth, concerns about the banking system and the rise of populist and euro-sceptic parties.

What Now? (Opposing The Deep State Of Rackets)

The USA is squandering its vitality trying to maintain a half-assed global empire of supposed interests, economic, ideological, and existential. The financialization of the economy is already playing into its disastrous climax with bond markets tanking all over the planet. What this means is that the long-ignored chickens of risk associated with debt are coming home to roost.

Top Democrat Calls For Probe Into President-Elect Trump's "Vast Financial Entanglements"

Having been bitterly disappointed last week that Rep. Jason Chaffetz did not automatically drop his investigation into Hillary Clinton's email indiscretions, Rep. Elijah Cummings has struck back by demanding a probe into President-Elect Trump's "vast financial entanglements" and his "unprecedented secrecy." Cummings proclaims that Trump's business dealings "raise serious questions about how he avoids conflicts of interest."

Correcting Some Misconceptions About A New Secular Bull Market

...the reality is that the current underlying demographic trends, economic realities, and market fundamentals do not provide the base to support current price levels much less the entrance into a secular bull market akin to that of the 80’s and 90’s.

Trump Or No Trump - Why The Next 8 Years Will Be The Worst Economic Period In US History

Regardless who was chosen as president for the next two terms, 80% of the population growth in the US will come from 65+yr/olds. This is the inverse from Bill Clinton's presidency which was the benefactor of the strongest demographic and population changes. The Fed has been dropping rates ever since to incentivize the decelerating growth among the young to spend more... but the population growth to consume(r) our way out of this debt bubble is never coming.

Weekend Edition: Get Ready for the Greatest Financial Mania the World Has Ever Seen, Part 2

by Porter Stansberry, Casey Research:
Today, around the world, something around $15 trillion in fixed income is trading at a price that guarantees investors will lose money if they buy the bond and hold it until maturity.
I want to make sure you understand what’s happening because the bond market and bonds are a mystery to a lot of individual investors.
A bond can trade at a negative yield to maturity (guaranteeing a future loss) while still paying a current coupon. How can that happen? It happens when investors bid the current price of a bond so far above par that the remaining coupons to be paid won’t cover the loss when the bond matures.

Hillary Supporter Holds ‘Rape Melania’ Sign at DC Protest in Front of Trump Hotel

from InfoWars:
Photos taken at an anti-Trump protest in Washington, D.C., Saturday night show a man holding high above the crowd a sign that read in large black letters on a white background, “RAPE MELANIA”. Melania is the wife of President-Elect Donald Trump. The protest was held in front of the new Trump hotel that opened on Pennsylvania Avenue at the site of the Old Post Office Building.
According to the man who photographed the sign, who goes by the handle “Beck [email protected]_beck”, the ‘RAPE MELANIA” sign was held aloft without any reaction by the estimated one-hundred-fifty Hillary Clinton supporters protesting the election of Trump. It was not until a lone Trump supporter waded into the protest and confronted the man that he took down the sign and fled.

Aspartame Linked to Vision Loss, Cancer and Other Illnesses

by Amy Goodrich, Natural News:
Aspartame – sold under the brand names NutraSweet, Sugar Twin and Equal – is one of the most popular artificial sweeteners available on the market. It is used as a low-calorie sugar substitute in more than 6,000 processed products worldwide, especially in diet or sugar-free foods and beverages.
While it remains the most used artificial sweetener, it has also faced controversy in recent years. As more and more research links aspartame to severe health effects, increasing numbers of people are becoming aware of this hidden poison and are trying to avoid it at all costs. That’s why Pepsi proactively removed it from their diet soda last year.

The Reasons to Assassinate JFK and Trump Are the Same

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
In my years on this planet, I have never seen so many threats from so many sources, related to the assassination of Donald Trump. Yet, the Secret Service and the FBI never do anything about it.
Facebook allowed an “Assassinate Donald Trump” page and defended the practice because their interpretation of freedom of speech. Yet, when I posted questions about Hillary’s health and fitness to serve, I was banned.
The threats against Trump’s life are now being fueled by George Soros’ thugs who are engaged in rioting because Clinton supporters will not accept the election results.
Let’s take a moment and look at how the establishment is desensitizing the public to the inevitable assassination of Donald Trump.

The Ice-Nine Plan – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
The main metaphor I use in my newest book The Road to Ruin: The Global Elites’ Secret Plan for the Next Financial Crisis (claim your free copy here) is something called “Ice-9.”
Ice-9 may be familiar to some listeners and readers, maybe not to others, but this is something I borrowed from the novelist Kurt Vonnegut.
He wrote a short novel in the early 1960s called Cat’s Cradle. Some readers may be familiar with it. If not, I recommend a copy. It’s short and hilarious.
My book, on the other hand, is not funny at all. I discuss the end of the financial system and the very real possibility of people losing all their savings. Hopefully, it’s engaging, entertaining and readable, but I can’t honestly say it’s funny. But Kurt Vonnegut’s is, even though he talks about a doomsday machine.

Hillary Points Fingers the Wrong Way for Losing to Trump

by Stephen Lendman, Market Oracle:
Hillary consistently blames others for her deplorable public record as first lady, US senator and secretary of state – serious wrongdoing enough to land ordinary people in prison longterm for committing any one of her numerous high crimes.
In a Saturday conference call to donors contributing $100,000 or more to her campaign, she was at it again, blaming FBI director James Comey for reopening his investigation into her email scandal in late October after 650,000 new ones were discovered.
According to her assessment, whitewashing her wrongdoing a second time days later, after earlier in July, wasn’t enough to undo damaging her politically.

The Global “Populist” Doom Tour Swings to Italy

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
In the middle of a blossoming banking crisis.
Widespread public disaffection and dissatisfaction are not unique to the UK and US; they’re on the rise all over the developed world. It’s not hard to see why. In the words of Mark Blyth, one of an embarrassingly small number of economists to correctly call both Brexit and the victory of Trump, the last 30 years have seen “a huge amount of economic growth but hardly anyone’s benefited from it.” And now the people are “fed up” and have decided at any opportunity to “give their elites notice that they’ve had enough.”
On December 4th, Italy could become the next whistle stop on the global populist doom tour as its people vote in a national referendum on the government’s proposed constitutional reforms, which seek to drastically curb the role of the upper house Senate, a move that Italian premier Matteo Renzi says will simplify decision-making and ensure stable government. Opponents fear it will make the legislative process more complicated and reduce checks and balances.
