Trumpgasm Sends Stocks To Longest Win Streak In 13 Years Despite Currency, Curve, & Credit Carnage


Steve Bannon Interviewed: "It's About Americans Not Getting F—ed Over"

“I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist. The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get f—ed over."

Draining the Neocon National Security Swamp? Don’t Count on It

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Now that things have gotten serious, it’s time for Donald Trump to kiss the ring.
Since clinching the Republican nomination, Trump’s true colors have started to emerge. He named a former Goldman Sachs partner to run his fundraising efforts, he named petty authoritarian, gangster wannabe Chris Christie to run his transition team, and he chose “everyone’s a terrorist” Rudy Giuliani as his planned head of the domestic gestapo, the Department of Homeland Security. He’s also been endorsed by Orc King Sheldon Adelson, who said he was prepared to spend $100 million to get him elected. Now he’s off to kiss the blood-soaked hands of Henry Kissinger.

Trump Supporters Plan to Bring “Fake News” Outlet CNN to its Knees (Video)

by Michael DePinto, Freedom OutPost:
In the article below by Amy Moreno from, Amy proposes an idea I previously suggested in a post titled, Notice to Mainstream Media: Don’t Get Comfortable, You’re Next! In that post, I suggested that if the mainstream media doesn’t demonstrate very quickly that it learned a lesson on election night, it might be time for We the People to seriously consider completely boycotting one mainstream media outlet at a time, as well as any company known to advertise on that outlet, until we are able to inflict serious financial damage. Then, if other networks haven’t gotten the hint, we put them in our sights.
Viewership is already so low on channels like CNN, a serious boycott would cause major financial hardship, perhaps even sinking the network if done for a prolonged enough period of time. Lack of viewers will cause their advertising revenue to dry up, and then the squeeze will be tight on an already struggling “news” network.

Governments And Central Banks In Panic Mode – The War On Cash Has Begun!

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
It’s truly incredible how much ground I have to cover each and every day, given the relentlessly expanding tsunami of horrible – or better put, “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” – headlines as the terminal phase of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme plays out. Frankly, it’s getting more and more difficult to condense my daily thoughts into just a few pages …
My Wall Street tenure made me quite adept at cramming in important information into tight spaces, which is exactly what I plan to do this morning, starting with a quick summary of some of the myriad lies, “mis-truths,” and propaganda engulfing the globe – starting with the most insolvent state of the Union, Illinois, which prototypically represents the apocalyptic state of the global pension fund Ponzi scheme, in purporting that its $78 billion fund, now unfunded by a whopping $130 billion, or 63%, can somehow pay out.

Weekend Reading: The Trump Effect

It has been interesting to watch market participants swing from “Trump The Terrible” to “Trump The Great” in relation to the markets and economy and he isn’t even in office yet. But while Trump certainly has an extensive list of actions for his first 100-days, there are many headwinds to actual policy implementation and ultimately their success.

Equity Breadth Is Flashing A Negative Signal About Growth Prospects

Equity breadth tends to directional lead changes in the PMI. So if equity breadth is increasing, the PMI tends to accelerate. Unfortunately, the fact that equity breadth has been declining over the past couple of months is pointing to a possible slowdown in the ISM Manufacturing PMI.

“Anybody who says they know how this going to work is kidding themselves, and their clients.  A lot of lobbyists are scrambling, because the biggest issue is access.”

The Importance Of Being Electoral

The Electoral College makes sense and serves America well. The Founders of America were deeply suspicious not only of central authority, but also of the madness of a crowd. The naive interpretation of democracy is majority rules. But majority rules can very easily mean majority dictates, majority is tyranny. Letting the minority win from time to time is maybe the price to pay for a stable democracy.

China Warns It Is Ready To Slow Yuan Plunge On Capital Outflow Fears

Regime Change? Yields Surpass Critical Level

For now, shareholders appear unphased by the fact that the cost of funding of the companies that they prize are soaring at an unprecedented speed. Nowhere is that more obviously disconnected than the congnitive dissonance between credit-sensitive small cap stocks and the plunge in high-yield corporate bonds. However, as we have begun to see today, rising yields are starting to weigh on stocks... but at what level does that "too much of a bad thing in bonds" slam stocks?

The Numbers Look Great... As They Always Do Before A Crash

BREAKING: Anon Claims FBI Insiders Can Confirm, Intelligence Community Indicates John and Tony Podesta Were in Praia da Luz, Portugal on May 3rd 2007 – The Day Madeleine McCann Vanished

Do John and Tony Podesta Have a Connection with Missing Child, Madeleine McCann?
from Victurus Libertas:
I would like to take a moment to thank all of the followers of Victurus Libertas. Thank you for all of your information, all of your help in researching, all of your comments and suggestions. I got part of the following information from a follower of VL on Facebook. It was further verified by an insider and more information has been added by other insiders, as well.
This may blow your mind. Of all the conspiracies the “conspiracy theorists” have come up with in the past several years, they never even came up with anything CLOSE to the reality of what is really going on- worldwide.

Google and Facebook Targeting Growing Influence of Alternative Media?

by Stephen Lendman, Market Oracle:
Alternative online media sites are gaining popularity at the expense of unreliable mainstream sources of news, information and analysis – notably during the disgraceful US presidential election coverage, concluded last week, along with every time America goes to war.
Media scoundrels suppress what everyone needs to know, lies, damn lies and Big Lies substituting – propaganda, not reliable journalism, why their readership and viewership are declining, maybe disappearing altogether one day if the current trend continues.
Google and Facebook intend halting what they call “fake news” – without explaining virtually everything media scoundrels air and publish on major issues is “fake,” vital truths suppressed.

from The Money GPS:

French PM: “Europe Is In Danger Of Falling Apart”

from ZeroHedge:
Ignoring years of stagnation, economic deterioration, and an unprecedented unemployment rate, which remains stubbornly in the double-digits for countries like Greece, Spain and Italy, Europe appears to have finally woken up, shocked by the reality of Brexit and the Trump election, and has started with the fire and brimstone warnings. Case in point: French prime minister Manuel Valls, who speaking in Berlin, said that the European Union is in danger of breaking apart unless France and Germany, in particular, work harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens’ concerns.
“Europe is in danger of falling apart,” Valls said at an event organized by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. “So Germany and France have a huge responsibility.”
Translation: confirming what we have said for years, the ECB did nothing for the economy while propping up markets, refuting the long-running official narrative, and now it is time to actually focus on the people, ideally by launching a massive fiscal spending stimulus.

Obama On Pace to Increase the Debt by $2.4 Trillion This Year

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:
OK, this is pretty nuts.

George Soros In Forgotten Interview: “I Cannot And Do Not Look At The Social Consequences Of What I Do”

by Daisy Luther, Activist Post:
Do you want to know who George Soros really is? He told us decades ago and nobody listened.
Check out this chilling 60 Minutes interview from Dec. 20, 1998.
Soros destabilizes economies to add to his billions and he doesn’t care about how this affects the people who suffer. During the interview, he said, with regard to speculative market attacks:
I don’t feel guilty. I’m engaged in an amoral activity which is not meant to have anything to do with guilt.

George Soros Seems to be “a Bit Jealous” These Days

by Martin Berger, New Eastern Outlook:
George Soros’ direct involvement in spreading the unrest in the United States triggered by the recent victory of Donald Trump amid the US elections is hardly a secret to anyone now.

from TRU News:
In a major move to explore the use of digital currency in Singapore, the city state’s central bank plans to launch a pilot project with the country’s stock exchange and eight local and foreign banks to use blockchain technology for interbank payments.
