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

While the corporate media is busy promoting polls claiming Donald Trump will enter the Oval Office with a low approval rating, a recent Rasmussen Reports survey finds more than half the country is supportive of the president-elect.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of Trump, with 30% who have a Very Favorable one,” the polling agency reported Thursday, one day ahead of the 2017 inauguration.
Rasmussen’s survey results starkly contrast polls hyped by the mainstream media earlier in the week in the run-up to the inauguration, claiming Trump would enter office with a historically low approval rating.
