Trump Versus The CIA

"The CIA is a sitting duck for Trump. He has every reason to abolish the agency that has traditionally operated on behalf of narrow interests. There is no reason for Trump to tolerate spurious charges against him by the CIA. At best the CIA is incompetent. At worst the agency is complicit in, or organizer of, terrorist events."

In Last Farewell, Russia Slams Obama Whose "Dumb" Actions "Claimed Tens Of Thousands Of Lives"

"Everyone is aware that the United States has always tried to" steer" almost all global processes, brazenly interfering in the internal affairs of various countries and waging multiple wars on foreign soil. Iraq, the Arab Spring, Ukraine, and Syria are just a few examples. We can still see their consequences, which range from the complete collapse of the political systems in these countries to wars which claimed tens of thousands of lives."

Socialism, Not Oil, Is The Cause Of Venezuela's Problems

Empty Shelves & Madness (In America): A Minor Winter Storm Drove People Into "Panic Buying Of Food And Basics"

If this type of panic buying, which can empty the shelves of a major box retailer like Wal-Mart in just a few hours, is so common place even in the event of a minor, predictable weather event, then what will happen when a serious crisis like a severe economic crash or an escalation of global conflict breaks out?

In only 8 years, Airbnb has become a $25 billion company. Co-founder Brian Chesky often talks about how anyone can turn extra space in their home into an asset that helps them pay their rent, but the economics of short term rental sites Airbnb and VRBO also appeal to people who do not live in the house or apartment they rent out. This increasingly includes professional real estate investors.

Va. House Passes Resolution Calling Roe v. Wade Anniversary the ‘Day of Tears’

by Lauretta Brown, CNSnews:
The Virginia House of Delegates voted 57-36 Wednesday to adopt a resolution calling January 22nd, the day that the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a constitutional right, a “Day of Tears in Virginia” and saying “that the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia are encouraged to lower their flags to half-staff to mourn the innocents who have lost their lives to abortion.”
“By making a visual step in support of life, hopefully we can help save lives,” Rockbridge Del. Ben Cline (R), who introduced the resolution, said at a news conference. “And ultimately, this is what that’s all about.”
Virginia House Democratic Caucus Chair Charniele Herring spoke on the floor just prior to the resolution’s passage, calling it “an insidious way to attack the dignity and privacy of women who have made a choice regarding their own life and health.”

Obama’s Perpetual Farewell Tour

by Pam Martens, Wall St On Parade:
The man who was compared to a Messiah when he won the presidential election in 2008 has been on an excruciatingly long goodbye tour. First there was his farewell speech to the United Nations in September. Next came his farewell tour across Europe in November – the Messiah’s last foreign trip. Then there was his farewell speech in the U.S. Yesterday, there was a tortuously vacuous farewell press conference, which toward the end, had the feeling that actors from central casting had replaced real journalists in the press room in order to memorialize the greatness of this President.
Whenever I think about this President, I think of Bruce Dixon, the Managing Editor of the Black Agenda Report in 2008 during Obama’s first presidential campaign.

Major Markets at Turning Points

by Gary Christenson, Deviant Investor:
Bonds have risen in a 35 year bull market. That bull market looks tired and probably peaked in July of 2016.
The U.S. Dollar Index recently hit 14 year highs. Has the dollar finally peaked? Has it turned downward since January 3, 2017?
Stocks have been rising since the 2009 crash lows. Rounded to the nearest point, the Dow hit 20,000. Was that enough to make a final top before a major turn downward?
Gold made an important low over a year ago but we continually hear chatter about gold falling below $1,000, perhaps to $700 or even $350. I believe it has turned upward and the chatter will dissipate.

More Cooperation Between America and China Than There Seems

from The Daily Bell:
Xi portrays China as global leader as Trump era looms … China will build a “new model” of relations with the United States, President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday in a speech that portrayed China as the leader of a globalized world where only international cooperation could solve the big problems. -Reuters
With Trump focusing on domestic problems, China is stepping up to become an international moderator and consensus builder.
“Trade protectionism and self-isolation will benefit no one,” Xi told the United Nations in Geneva. “Big countries should treat smaller countries as equals instead of acting as a hegemon imposing their will on others.”
