Blocks Of Anti-Trump Protest Buses Caught On Tape

Chaos Ensues As Europe Splinters In Response To Trump: UK, France, Hungary Snub EU Emergency Meeting

Britain and France on Sunday night snubbed a contentious EU emergency meeting to align the bloc’s approach to Donald Trump’s election, exposing rifts in Europe over the US vote. Boris Johnson dropped out of the Brussels meeting, with officials arguing that it created an air of panic, while French foreign minister Ayrault opted to stay in Paris. Hungary’s foreign minister boycotted the meeting, labelling the response from some EU leaders as “hysterical”.

Secret Corporate Government Merger — Known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership — is Finally Dead

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:
In perhaps the least ceremonious victory for U.S. and international activists, the decidedly abhorrent Trans-Pacific Partnership — a corporate giveaway of phenomenal proportions — effectively died yesterday.
Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle announced the much-maligned, so-called ‘free trade’ deal — which would have inextricably tied the U.S. to Asia and given corporations unprecedented powers over governments — would not be pursued in the lame duck session before President-elect Donald Trump takes office.
President Obama had hoped the massive, 12-nation agreement would come to fruition under a Hillary Clinton presidency, but with her defeat and Trump’s promise to roll back the previous, similarly-modeled North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), all prospects of passage melted away.

Suicide Hotlines Get Record Number Of Calls After Trump Win: "Phones Have Been Ringing Off The Hook"

While many shocked Clinton supporters have found solidarity with thousands of others by protesting and rioting in the streets, some, like movie star Robert DeNiro, have fallen into a depressive state. And according to The Hill, those overwhelming feelings of depression have led to suicidal thoughts in many. So much so that suicide hotlines across the country are struggling to keep up...

What Happens When 2-Term Presidencies End?

Four words - nothing good for stocks.

Gold Drops To 9-Month Lows As Market Mayhem Resumes As Asia Opens

Gold is now down over 10% from pre-Trump highs (to 9-month lows). USDJPY has jumped back above 107.00 (to 4-month highs), extending its move to a stunning 6 handles since Trump's victory lows. After being closed on Friday, Treasuries have opened notably lower (with 10Y yield up over 5bps, breaking above 2.20%) and US equity futures extend gains with Dow up over 80 points.

Why President Trump Will Fumigate The Fed

Trump’s election has given hard money advocates the most hope in over 30 years that our nation’s failed monetary policy will be reformed. Mixed with the current hawkish wave that is already percolating in the veins of some FOMC members, Trump’s future appointments can have a huge impact on the central bank’s immediate decision-making. One can only hope that the president-elect will stick to his guns and do the right thing.

Anti-Trump Protest Day 5 Looms: Denial, Double Standards, & 'Dump Trump' Dissonance

Demonstrators across the United States planned to take to the streets for a fifth straight day on Sunday to protest President-elect Donald Trump. Protests were scheduled for Sunday afternoon in New York City and Oakland, California, according to online announcements. Dozens have been arrested and a handful of police injured, but, as Reuters reports, neither Obama nor Clinton has called for an end to the protests.

Why Some "Flyover States" Switched To Trump

The grossly aggregated national data (and the stock market) shows the economy is growing... so everything must be fine, right? For millions of people outside the coastal cities where powerful investors and media figures live, however, things are not fine. Indeed, no one should be surprised that on election day, it was voters from Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin - states that have favored Democrats in recent presidential elections - handed Donald Trump his victory.

One Hedge Fund's Warning: "What’s Good For The US In This Case, Is Not Good For Emerging Markets"

"To be bullish on emerging markets at this stage is to disregard the adverse dollar and interest rate environment, and build your investment thesis on the expectation that China will sustain the largest credit expansion in modern economic history." Most investors viscerally understand this, particularly within China, where capital outflows just hit new highs for the year - weakening the renminbi. "Historically, emerging markets have done well when global growth has been robust. But the world is changing."

Anti-Trump Protests: Proof Of Professional Activist Involvement

In a story from November 12, USA Today writes an article to discredit the idea that the professional activist community is involved with organizing anti-Trump protests. They invite you to meet the protesters. USA today presents them as ordinary people. However, WikiLeaks exposes them as experienced protest organizers and activists.

"Markets Are Grasping At Trump's Answer To The New Normal"

"Monetary policy is no longer what’s driving these moves. Increasingly, central banks see themselves in a defensive role, reacting rather than dictating trends. The greenback’s rally is already forcing Asian and Latin American central banks to protect their currencies. More such moves may be in the offing if dollar gains continue....  But for now, after growing weary of monetary-led slow growth, markets are grasping at Trump’s answer to the New Normal."

Krugman Admits He Is Clueless

"’s clear that almost everyone on the center-left, myself included, was clueless about what actually works in persuading voters. Tuesday’s fallout will last for decades, maybe generations." It will not matter. Whatever the problem, government is not the solution.

Actually, "Nobody" Won The 2016 Presidential Election... And It Was A Landslide

When all Americans are included, Trump only garnered the votes of about 19 percent of us. The majority of Americans don’t vote anymore because the political system no longer represents them. We’ve been disenfranchised by decades of corrupt, unrepresentative politicians.

Michael Moore Loses It: Tells Trump "You Lost, Step Aside", Urges Tom Hanks To Run For Dems In 2020

"You lost. Step aside.  I'm opposed to this man who did not win the popular vote taking office, and we need to figure out what we can do, legally, nonviolently, to make sure this doesn't happen."

Reince Priebus Confirmed As Trump's Chief Of Staff; Bannon Becomes Chief Strategist

Donald Trump has confirmed Reince Priebus will be his Chief of Staff and Stephen Bannon will serve as Trump's Chief Strategist.

On That 'Concession' Speech (aka Meet The New Clinton Inc.)

" I watched Mrs. Clinton’s concession speech I couldn’t help but marvel at what I believed to be watching. For if I’m correct, what transpired at that presser was more inline with a business turnaround, or business crisis PR announcement event (think Tylenol or even Wells Fargo for base-case relevance) rather than just your typical political concession speech."

"Saturday Night Live" Guides Liberal Americans Through The 5 Stages Of Grief

Having reached record levels of viewership in recent weeks thanks to their parodies of Trump and Clinton, SNL was unlikely to go quietly into the night with the show following the most divisive presidential campaign in US history. In three distinct segments last night, WaPo reports, "Saturday Night Live" pretty well encapsulated many of liberal America's reactions to Donald Trump's election as president, as it worked its way through the five stages of grief on live TV.

No, Protesters, You Are Not Entitled To Free Education

One of the recurring themes from these protestors being interviewed, primarily young people, was that Trump wasn’t going to do anything about student debt. "The truth is that they’re not interested in free education... They just want a free university degree... a piece of paper that confers neither education nor any guarantee of success in life."

The Real Clinton Conspiracy that Backfired – The Worst Candiate in American History

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:
Meanwhile, Hillary lost not merely because she misread the “real” people, she decided to run a very divisive and nasty negative campaign, which has fueled the violence ever since. According to WikiLeaks emails from campaign John Podesta, Clinton colluded with the DNC and the media to raise what they thought would be the extreme right among Republicans to then make her the middle of the road to hide her agenda.
Clinton called this her “pied piper” strategy, that intentionally cultivated extreme right-wing presidential candidates and that would turn the Republicans away from their more moderate candidates.

Here’s What Happened in Syria While Everyone Was Watching the Election

by Darius Shahtahmasebi, The Anti Media:
The 2016 U.S. election was likely one of the most closely watched events of all time, especially considering the race was between America’s own version of Adolph Hitler and its female incarnation of Dick Cheney. As such, it provided a unique opportunity for politicians in America and elsewhere to take all manner of actions that will undoubtedly slip through the cracks within the mainstream media.
For example, remember the war in Syria? The one that’s been raging since 2011? Well, while members of the American public were casting their votes and proceeding to follow the outcome of the election like it was the Super Bowl, Russia threatened to launch “large scale” cruise missiles and airstrikes in Aleppo, as reported by the Guardian.

David Rockefeller Gives Donald Trump Marching Orders; Jon Rappoport’s Satirical Tribute To Oligarchs

by Jon Rappoport, The News Doctors:
All right. Hillary and Bill are gone. They’re back in their coffins and their supplies of blood are running low. That’s a good thing. That is a major outcome of the election.
But will Donald Trump now keep his promises?
I’ve framed this piece as a letter David Rockefeller, arch-Globalist-in-charge, might write to President-elect Trump. The updated “payoff” is in the last paragraph.
If Rockefeller were being honest, this is what he would write:
Donald: I won’t waste time congratulating you. We both know you and America are in for a rough ride. That plucky little demon, George Soros, is already funding and orchestrating thuggish riots in American cities. They do induce a bit of chaos, and I take a certain delight in chaos.

Notables Heading to the White House Along With Trump

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
The voting machines have decided who will be the next puppet figurehead of the Pax Americana deep state for the next four years. The circus is over and the peanut shells are being swept out of the stands. So what do we have to show for all of it?
Well, I have some good news, some bad news, and some not-so-good news for you. Let’s start with the bad news.
Apparently some people voted for Trump in the belief that he was some sort of anti-establishment truth-telling hero of the working class. I hate to be the one to disabuse you of this notion, so let’s just look at his transition team, his campaign team, the people who have already been tapped to be part of the new administration and the people who are being contacted for potential cabinet appointments. Warning: It’s not a pretty picture.

Islamic Sex Slavery: Muslim Gangs Now Kidnapping Thousands of Girls and Women in Europe

by Walid Shoebat, Freedom OutPost:
Sexual abuse and Islam are like peanut butter and jelly in the grocery store- where you find one you will find the other right next to it. This has been a problem throughout history that Christians have fought against the Muslims over, and ever since the Muslim invasion of Europe last year, there has been an explosion of forced prostitution and horrible sex slavery:
Nigerian females have been landing in Italy in significant numbers since the 1980s, lured by the promise of jobs only to find themselves with colossal debts to the traffickers who got them here.
The trade has exploded in recent years. According to IOM figures, 433 Nigerian women arrived in 2013, 1,454 in 2014, 5,653 last year and 7,768 in the first nine months of 2016.

Today and tomorrow, we’re sharing an important idea from our longtime friend and founder of Stansberry Research, Porter Stansberry.
You see, right now, we’re seeing unprecedented warning signs in credit markets all around the world…
The global scale of these problems means the coming crisis—what Porter has called “the greatest legal transfer of wealth in history”—will be truly historic. And folks who don’t see what’s coming could be wiped out.

Harry Reid Erupts Over Steve Bannon Appointment: "White Supremacists Now Represented In The White House"

The reaction by prominent members of the establishment to Steve Bannon's elevated role was critical and swift, and none was more vocal in their disgust than a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a vocal critic of Trump, who said the hire "signals that White Supremacists will be represented at the highest levels" of the new administration.

Stunned Morgan Stanley Admits Nobody Has A Clue What Trump Will Do: "His Policies Are Like Schrodinger's Cat"

"To a remarkable extent, investors we’ve spoken to both before and after November 8 disagree on what President-Elect Trump will actually do. Many have told us, confidently, that they believe that, while he said some extreme things on the campaign trail, he is ultimately a moderate, pragmatic businessman. Other investors take a less benign view...  Like Schrodinger’s cat, his policies existed in a state of being both pragmatic and radical, all at the same time."
