Obamacare Repeal Fails: Republicans Pull Healthcare Bill In Blow To Trump...

After Trump's Thursday ultimatum failed to yield more "yes" votes, the embattled bill seeking to replace major parts of Obamacare was yanked Friday from the floor of the House.

Russia Now Prepared for Both Dollar Collapse and Future Sanctions by Announcing Alternative SWIFT System

by Kenneth Schortgen, The Daily Economist:
Over the 70+ years the U.S. has had control over the global monetary system, they have used the dollar on occasion as an ‘economic weapon’ to force other countries into ceding to their national and international policies. And of course their most common way they do this is by cutting off nations from access to the SWIFT system.
But in the wake of the economic sanctions Washington and the European Union imposed on Russia following the Ukrainian coup, China, and now we can add Russia to this group, have used their time in creating their own SWIFT alternatives, and on March 23 the central bank of Russia announced they are fully prepared for any overt or covert monetary crisis which may include a dollar collapse, or future sanctions that might be used to attack the ruble.

SO MUCH CORRUPTION THEY HAVE TO MEET IN PRIVATE TO DISCUSS IT!! Nunes Calls Comey, Rogers For “Closed Session” After Finding “Concerning Info” In Intel Reports

from Zero Hedge:
The lack of a leak investigation is quite concerning. We need to make sure that these leaks are being tracked down…There are just questions that we have for Dir. Comey and Adm. Rogers probably that theycouldn’t answer in a public setting…”
Last night we highlighted a Fox News story which suggested that Devin Nunes expected the NSA to deliver a “smoking gun” which would prove that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, as early as today.
Moments ago, Nunes fanned that speculation by holding an impromptu press conference announcing that he’ll call both FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee to discuss topics which “they couldn’t answer in a public setting.”

The Useful And The Useless

The battle lines are forming... Take away the undeserved from the undeserving and you get a tantrum. Steal the earned from those who earned it and you get righteous rage. One’s a firecracker, the other a volcano.

Wall Street Explains What Today's Failure To Repeal Obamacare Means For Markets

"The fact this bill, which the President has said flat-out he will make it work for all Americans in general, can't pass is an indication this agenda is going to be more ambitious than this Congress can work with.... It is an indication that investors should not expect the kind of velocity in terms of agenda accomplishments they were expecting when he was elected."

Weekend Reading: Lack Of Perspective

"While it is often said it is only “time IN the market” that matters, investors must remember “time” is the one commodity we can not replace."

Watch Live: Paul Ryan Explains Why He Pulled The Health Bill

NYPD Releases Incriminating Clinton Evidence To Force FBI To Act

by Baxter Dmitry, Your News Wire:
New York Police Department detectives and sources working on a production of child pornography charge against Anthony Weiner have turned on the FBI for creating “one roadblock after another” and have started releasing incriminating material into the public domain implicating Hillary Clinton in the underage sex investigation.

Retail Flows Are Finished: RBC Warns "New Regime" For Stocks About 'Hard' Data & Earnings

'Reflation'-themed fund-flows are fading fast (with equities, cyclicals outflows accelerating), and 'higher rate beneficiaries'-linked bond flows (bank loans, HY, inflation protected) slowing to multi-month lows. As RBC's head of cross-asset strategy, Charlie McElligott notes, their model shows the ETF inflow story is no longer a price-driver of short term stock market pricing... "it's a new regime."

VIX Options Activity Spikes Most Since Brexit As Healthcare Vote Looms

With tail risk hedges (SKEW) at record highs, and normal risk hedges (VIX) beginning to rise, it appears anxiety over Trump-Trades is growing. This week saw VIX options activity soar to its highest since Brexit (led by bearish market VIX Call volumes). VIX over 13 yesterday was 2017's highs, but remains notably below the 'norms'.

The Swamp Drains Trump

So, the long and the short of it is that the RussiaGate story is spinning out of control, and Trump’s adversaries - who go well beyond Congress into the Deep State - might be getting enough leverage to dump Trump. Either they will maneuver him and his people into some kind of perjury rap, or they will tie up the government in such a web of investigative procedural rigmarole that all the country lawyers who ever snapped their galluses will never be able to unravel it.

Odds Of Healthcare Bill Passing Today Plunge To 13%

Washington is Killing More Civilians than Terrorists in the Middle East

by Martin Berger, New Eastern Outlook:
The recent strike launched by the US-led coalition some 20 miles to the west of al-Raqqah resulted in hundreds of civilian deaths, as the bombs hit a former school that served as shelter for refugees, as it’s been announced by the Turkish Anadolu news agency. It was added that the bombardment targeted more than 50 families who fled the towns of Hamas, Homs and al-Raqqah in a bid to save their lives. Local sources of the same agency have also reported yet another air strike launched in the in the area of Tabqa city, which has claimed at least 40 lives.
Additionally, the US military command confirmed last week that the air strikes it launched in the Syrian province of Aleppo resulted in the death of at least 49 people, which is hardly surprising since the strikes targeted a local mosque in the Al-Jin village during evening prayers. According to local sources, at this time of the day there’s usually around 300 locals praying in the mosque. The Syrian Human Rights Observatory has already stated that the better part of those deceased were civilians. In turn, Le Monde would describe this strike as one of the bloodiest mistakes of the Pentagon since the beginning of its operations in Syrian skies.

1 in 4 US Workers Have Less Than $1,000 in Retirement Savings

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:
The annual Retirement Confidence Survey (RCS) was released recently and shows 1 in 4 workers surveyed have less than $1,000 saved for their retirement. The RCS, published by the Employee Benefit Research Institute, measures statistics taken from 1,000 individuals aged 25 and over about their retirement confidence, planning strategies, and savings amounts. The survey’s results show a disconnect between US worker confidence in their ability to retire comfortably and their actual preparedness.

Italy Falls Out of Love With Euro: Beppe Grillo on the Rise

by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:
Recent polls for Italian politicians supporting the eurozone and EU have collapsed.
Pro-Europe polls are highly likely to get worse as a further splintering of Matteo Renzi’s PD party takes place.
It is not out of question for Beppe Grillo’s eurosceptic Five Star Movement (M5S) party to achieve an absolute majority in the next election. However, please note that 40% is the threshold for a “majority”.

Windows 10 Has Been Logging Everything You Type — Here’s How To Stop It

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:
According to a startling new report, if you use Windows 10, every, single keystroke you’ve ever entered on your computer has been logged.
If that weren’t alarming enough to the privacy-minded among us, all of that information is being sent directly to Microsoft.
All of which begs the question, is this why Microsoft was so insistent its users download Windows 10 as soon as it became available?
