War On Cash Intensifies: Citibank To Stop Accepting Cash At Some Branches

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:
George Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “The Best Year of his Life.” 70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.

Obama Tries to Cover Tracks by Ordering a Mop Up of Jabhat al-Nusra Leaders

by Grete Mautner, New Eastern Outlook:
If you might have the impression that Barack Obama was the first US president that established close ties with various terrorist organizations across the world, you would be bitterly disappointed when you learn the truth. Even though Washington has always been pretty vocal about fighting terrorism, as a matter of fact, it nurtured various terrorist groups across the globe to undermine unwanted governments, seeking destabilization and consequent toppling of those governments that refused to bow to the so-called Western champions of democracy.
That’s exactly how Washington created al-Qaeda back in 1988 to fight Soviet influence in Afghanistan. Similarly, a quarter of a century later, the Obama administration created and armed the so-called Syrian opposition, that was later transformed into a dangerous and pretty disgusting weapon – ISIS.

“The market is expecting an interest-rate hike in December, and there is no fundamental reason for the Fed” to disappoint according to DZ Bank's Birgit Figge, and judging by the spike in futures-market-implied rate-hike odds post-Trump, it's a done deal.

Bond Vigilantes Stir As Trump Team Hints At "Infrastructure Bank"

As part of Donald Trump's "fluid" proposals and trial balloons on how to implement his economic policies, adviser Steven Mnuchin told reporters on Wednesday that the Trump transition team is weighing an "infrastructure bank" to make investments in America's aging infrastructure. Mnuchin said that a "very big focus is regulatory changes, looking at the creation of an infrastructure bank to fund infrastructure investments” which to Wall Street was pure poetry as it heard just two words: "more debt.

11 Very Depressing Economic Realities That Donald Trump Will Inherit From Barack Obama

Despite hopes that Donald Trump will waltz in and suddenly turn everything around, it would be a grave mistake to understate the amount of damage that has been done to the U.S. economy over the past eight years.

German Lawmaker Pushes For European Nuclear Deterrence Plan

With both NATO and Europe suddenly unsure of what a radical foreign policy by the Trump administration could mean for NATO funding and European joint defense, a senior member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives said that Europe needs to think about developing its own nuclear deterrent strategy given concerns that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump could scale back U.S. military commitments in Europe.

BofA Survey Reveals The Biggest Market Risk: A "Stagflationary Bond Crash"

According to BofA, the biggest tail risk is now a "stagflationary bond crash" - crowded longs (Minimum Volatility, US/EU credit, long EM debt) remain vulnerable to further jump in yields. In contrast, political rhetoric to calm “protectionism" fears (which jumped to highest levels since 2009) would boost risk appetite.

2012 Redux - Liberal News Site Slate Defends Electoral College: "The Argument That It Is Undemocratic Falls Flat"

An "Amazed" Bill Gross Slams Trump: "His Tenure Will Be Damaging"

"I am amazed, at what American voters have done to themselves: in voting to deny Hillary Clinton the Henhouse, they "unwittingly" (lack of wit), let Donald Trump sneak in the side door. His tenure will be a short four years but is likely to be a damaging one for jobless and low-wage American voters."

Oil Fades After Iraq, Iran And Nigeria Oil Ministers All Decide To Skip OPEC Doha Meeting

In yet another sign that behind the frequently blasted OPEC headlines meant to suggest a sense of OPEC unity yet which do nothing more than incite a short squeeze (as even Morgan Stanley has now admitted), there is far less cohesion, moments ago we learned that Nigeria's Oil minister Emmanuel Kachikwu is the latest to skip this week's Doha meeting scheduled for November 17 and 18. He joins the oil minister of both Iran and Iraq who will likewise skip the meeting. Oil is not happy.

Two things to look for in the coming days: is the war on coal a priority for the new administration’s first 100 days? We would bet not. Second, we would expect a gradual softening in rhetorical tone.

Oil Panic-Bid To $46 On OPEC Headline Despite Across-The-Board Inventory Builds

Following API's big builds in Crude, Cushing, and Distillates, DOE reported notable inventory builds across the entire energy complex with a bigger than expected crude build sparking initial selling pressure in WTI.

Peak Snowflake – Students, Professors Blast University Of Virginia Head For Quoting Thomas Jefferson

from ZeroHedge:
Update: As Washinton Examiner’s Philip Wegmann reports, U.Va. President Teresa Sullivan acknowledged the protest against her quotation of Jefferson in a statement released Monday. She rejected the idea, however, that quotation is tantamount to endorsement of Jefferson’s shortcomings.
“In my message last week, I agreed with Mr. Jefferson’s words expressing the idea that U.Va. students would help to lead our republic,” Sullivan said in a statement posted on the university’s website. “He believed that 200 years ago, and I believe it today.”
The first female president of the university that Jefferson founded, Sullivan did something her faculty could not. She made a distinction between intrinsic principle and historical personality. Those perfect ideals transcend even the flawed third president.

Meet California’s 218,667 Public Employees Making Over $100,000/Year

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Open the Books is back with another important government transparency report. This time, the organization looked closely at California payrolls, and found that 218,667 public sector employees earn six-figure salaries (in many cases far above that threshold), at a cost of $35 billion.
If Californians are fine with this sort of thing, more power to them, but it’s important to be knowledgable about where and how tax dollars are spent.
Below are a few highlight’s from Adam Andrzejewski’s (founder of Open the Books) recent article published at Forbes titled, ‘$100K Minimum Wage’ For 220,000 Highly-Compensated California Public Employees Costs Taxpayers $35B:

Establishment Media Declares War On Their Competition As “Fake News”

from Activist Post:
The establishment media is dying. This is not a biased view coming from “alternative media,” it is a fact borne out by metrics and opinion polls from within the establishment itself. It was true before the recent election, and is guaranteed to accelerate after their shameless defense of non-reality which refused to accept any discontent among the American population with standard politics.
Now, with egg on their face after the botched election coverage, and a wobbling uncertainty about how they can maintain multiple threads of a narrative so fundamentally disproven, they appear to be resorting to their nuclear option: a full shut down of dissent.

Something Financially (And Politically) Wicked This Way Comes

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

This is bad; very, very bad.
While I may not be able to forecast when last to go” markets like the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” and paper gold and silver will break free of the “powers that be’s’” unconscionable, blatantly obvious manipulation, I’ll put my track record of political, economic, and monetary predictions up there with any of the most famous – in many cases, infamous – “gurus.”  The reason being, that in a world of lies, corruption, brainwashing, stupidity, manipulation, and brainwashing, only a handful of free thinkers – like myself, and you – still apply logic on a daily basis.

The Trumpening of Europe: Moldova and Bulgaria Vote for Detente with Russia

from Rogue Money:
As previously the poorest country in Europe (before the devaluation of the hyrvnia and the Donbass war earned the post-Maidan ‘revolution of dignity’ Ukrainian state that dubious distinction) Moldova relies heavily on remittances from migrant workers in Romania and Russia. Moldova has also suffered from Russian restrictions on its exports principally wines since its pro-EU government signed an association agreement with Brussels in 2014. The failure of the EU to deliver on many of its promises to neighboring Romania and the massive corruption of their Eurocrat and Washington directed politicians have persuaded many Moldovans that their future lies in the Eurasian Economic Union with Russia. An economic bloc with which, for all the efforts to denigrate it by Soros-ian propgandists, U.S. allies or partners such as Vietnam, India and Israel have expressed an interest in either joining or establishing free trade agreements.

Trump Triumphs as Brexit Faces a Serious Threat

by John Browne, Euro Pacific Capital:
Brexit and the Donald Trump presidential victory should rightly be viewed as the most significant international developments of the last decade. Both events illustrate a breaking down of globalist order and they both threaten the entrenched elite that has so ruthlessly and painfully hurt the middle and working classes. But as Trump supporters revel in the largely unanticipated victory, Brexit faces a serious new challenge.
On November 3, 2016, The English High Court ruled that the UK’s withdrawal from the EU would affect substantially the “rights of individuals within the UK.” As a result, the Court concluded that despite the referendum, and the “Crown prerogative” that grants the Government considerable leeway, particularly in matters of foreign affairs, the decision to leave the EU must be made by Parliament. Given that the government has made many decisions to increase the UK’s “ever-closer” integration into the EU over the years, which clearly affected the “rights of UK individuals,” it is curious that the Court would finally decide to step in when the government was moving in the other direction.

MSM Corruption
Are you tired of the fake polls from the MSM? Are you tired of getting your biased news from CNN, ABC, MSNBC, etc., who are paid to write some stories while censoring other stories?

Protesters Target Senator Chuck Schumer’s Office Along With Trump Tower

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:
The corrupt and collapsing two-party political system in the U.S. is coming under renewed attack by the young generation. Trump Tower in New York City, where Republican President-elect Donald Trump is holed up, has become a veritable police fortress at street level with much of the sidewalk area barricaded from pedestrian traffic. Progressive protesters have been regularly massing outside of the building since Trump’s win in the presidential election on November 8. Many of their posters read: “Not My President.”
