      Dick Tracy says:

      You CFS don’t understand Trump, he literally knows how the game is played and how to play it, there will be lots of change but along the way you must make compromises or let it appear as if you are. Good leaders know how to make decisions with the advice of others and also without their counsel. That is a must, weak leaders simply want to appease others by giving them plums without understanding the issues. DT

        Thanks Mr. Tracy, I happen to agree with you completely.

        DT,
        I would posit that a “good dealmaker” does not yield from his initial position BEFORE any negotiations start; but rather as a result of compromises along the route.

      I have had numerous conversations about this since the election. The consensus is that he is currently doing the right thing. Parts of Obamacare are okay but look for MAJOR revisions, Professor.

      I am very optimistic about the future for the first time in a long time.

        I too am optimistic about the future.
        Trump has New York Street Smarts.
        However, he also has New York liberal democrat leanings.
        That he is not a conservative, worries me.
        I believe he will fail, because we have a debt bomb,
        which will implode the system before sufficient changes can occur.

      Maybe calexit…would give state of Jefferson even more steam. Calexit right off the top of my mind would give the uninformed ( government officials) even more power to tell is how to manage our ag and reasource lands.

      California would have to create their own currency, and how to deal with their debt?
      Outright default? Pensions? How will they buy water? Desalination, that would kill their ocean, quite the challenges.
      Might happen, I recall years ago articles saying the U.S. would break up.
      Maybe its started.

      • On November 12, 2016 at 4:23 pm,
        CFS says:

        What makes you think desalination creates a ocean problem? You need to study Israel’s desalination.

      Do you actually think that Calexit is a possibility?

      • On November 12, 2016 at 12:44 pm,

        I doubt Calexit is possible. With a bankrupt state, it would be a disaster.
        We may have a USA – wide disaster anyway.

      A COLLECTION OF TRUMP’S PROMISES:
      Trump’s 100-day plan is outlined as the following –
      * FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
      * SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
      * THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
      * FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
      * FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
      * SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
      On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 actions to protect American workers:
      * FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
      * SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
      * THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
      * FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
      * FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
      * SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
      * SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure
      Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:
      * FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama
      * SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States
      * THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities
      * FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back
      * FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
      Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:
      Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
      End The Offshoring Act. Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.
      American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
      School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to give parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
      Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
      Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.
      End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.
      Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.
      Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values
      Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.
      On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.
      This is my pledge to you.
      And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.

    Folks need to Recognize the fact that Trump won, not because he was what the general public wanted, but because Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate and lost.

    DON’T BELIEVE MAIN STREAM MEDIA. IT DISTORTS AND LIES.

    Here are the votes for Republican candidates for recent Presidential elections:
    (Total popular vote)
    2004: G.W.Bush…….59.028 million
    2008: McCain……….59.934 ”
    2012: Romney………60.932 ”
    “2016: Trump………..60.072 ”

    Enough people recognized Clinton is an unindicted criminal.

    Cory, the turn-out was NOT high.
    Trump won, because Democrats did not sufficiently turn-out.

    Please realize this elction was a flash in the pan. IT WAS NOT A TRUE REVOLUTION, BIg Al.

    Guys, I appreciate the amount of work you do in getting the two hours together, but keep up to date with facts.

    Cory, Obama has already indicated he has given up on TPP.

    The 2020 Presidential election in all probability will be won by the Democrats, because of illegal immigration, and the voting statistics associated with immigrants.

    Re: Debt problem.

    Big Al. You do understand a Jubilee is a redistribution of Debt or Wealth.

    If there is a Jubilee, the people who have loaned money, lose it.
    Bank depositors lose money.
    Company capital held in banks is destroyed.

    It might have worked in ancient times, but it would destroy a modern economy.

This shows the contempt these leaders have for the electorate. The games of being nice upfront to Trump and playing hardball in the background are just beginning, Trump however is a master at playing off people, this will be interesting to watch. DT

      He was NEVER going to get the Washington establishment to agree to term limits.
      That can only be obtained by a Convention of the States Constitutional amendment process (under Article 5 of the Constitution.) Even the founding fathers realized that.

            I had some gut problems, and his book ‘Stomach Acid is Good for You’ was a very good resource.

            The old saying is that health begins in the gut, and I believe it. The modern diet of processed food, full of GMO, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, etc. is very hard on the gut, and thus on health in general. His book was very helpful in improving my situation, whereas the MDs I saw in person were pretty much useless, if not harmful. No, actually they were harmful.

        Best healthcare for everyone is just too expensive.
        The population of the UK and some countries in Europe seem relatively happy with a single payer system.
        It does have the advantage of cost reduction of drugs through large volume purchasing.
        It also has the problem of rationing of services.
        In the UK once you are over about 80, don’t get sick, or you are in deep trouble.
        Google “Liverpool Pathway”. It is the policy to let people die (usually by starvation) if in hospital and have a life experience not considered good.
        With 3 cancer operations, I would have probably been dead over ten years ago under the UK national health service.

    Chicago Man Beaten By Angry Black Mob For Voting Trump Speaks Out

    A couple of days ago we wrote about the 49-year old Chicago resident, David Wilcox, who was beaten by a group of angry black men as onlookers shouted “you voted Trump? you gonna pay for that sh*t,” “beat his ass,” and “don’t vote Trump.” Today the battered Wilcox spoke to the Chicago Tribune to give more details on the events surrounding the assault. In addition to being beaten mercilessly, Wilcox was also drug down the streets of Chicago’s West Side at 70-80 miles per hour as he attempted to prevent the mob from stealing his vehicle.

        I’ve been to Chicago 8 times in the last decade for (3-5 days at time) and have always had a great adventure (amazing restaurants, world class architecture, watercraft on the lake and river, global hub of culture/goods/shopping, a good sports culture, good mass transit, and all the different neighborhoods).

        I have rarely been worried or concerned about violence, except the 1 time I was sitting in a restaurant when the G8 Summit riots broke out. Most of the crime and gun violence is centralized in the South Side in a few neighborhoods and ironically Illinois has some of the toughest gun laws. (obviously more gun laws are not the answer).

        What is unfortunate with Chicago is the perception outsiders form due to those rough neighborhoods in an area that is not representative of the rest of the larger Chicago area. As a result, the world throws the whole city out with the bathwater incorrectly. Chi-town is a really great place overall and one of my favorite cities to visit.

            Chicago has a bad rap with the stats as one of the highest murder rates, but it is not really put into perspective by the media. Most of the city is fine, and actually has more “community spirit” as a big city than LA or Houston or Cleveland or Baltimore etc… The violence in Chicago is very concentrated for the most part in a few neighborhoods, and the negative news coverage incorrectly paints the whole city with that broad brush. For those that have never visited the Windy City – go there in the warmer months and you’ll be stunned with majestic city on the lake….

            Blocks Of Anti-Trump Protest Buses Caught On Tape

            Earlier today we showed that, contrary to USA Today’s claims that the anti-Trump protests across the nation are “spontaneous, involving people from all walks of life”, according to Wikileaks documents at least two of the people profiled by USA Today have a history of being professional agitators for the Democratic party, whose task is to stir up popular protests and – in extreme cases – unleash rioting, such as the following clip showing the latest day of violent protests in Portland revealed.

            Now, courtesy of a Zero Hedge reader, we have visual confirmation of how a substantial portion of these professional, paid protesters arrive at the site of the protest, in this case Chicago.

            As our reader notes, “I have a video of 5 city blocks on the West side of Chicago lined with busses from Wisconsin (Badger Bus Lines) bringing in protestors. The Sears tower is visible in the background.”

            The video was taken at 3:30pm on South Canal Street in Chicago on Saturday. As our reader points out, hundreds of the participants that took part in the downtown Chicago protests from November 12 were bused in using these vehicles. Other arrived by train.

            I lived in Cleveland Ohio for about 10 years and that was far more violent in multiple areas, and Dayton, Ohio was even more violent mid-state. Washington DC is far more violent I’ve seen crime first hand in those cities. LA the crime is spread out all over the place. In Houston or Atlanta (where I’ve spent considerable amount of time in both) there is violence spread out over all parts of the sprawling cities, but even they aren’t that worrisome.

            I will say the Amtrack trains in the NorthEast to a really good job between Philly and Harford, and Willmington, and Baltimore and DC and New York, etc..

            Honestly Big Al, I know you knock it a bit sometimes as a city, but we were just out in Seattle again 2 weeks ago and the mass transit there is pretty good with the subway, the amtrack, the monorail, the water ferries, the buses, and even the trolley.

    Al:
    I have a different tack with the statement that most people are now understanding the gravity of our debt problem. Perhaps a few but this issue has been bandied about since LBJ and the ‘Average American’ that helped put Trump in the Whitehouse doesn’t see the problem since he has never seen the problem. The deficit spending goes on and he’s really pissed that he didn’t see any of it flow his way in the last 40 years. They voted for Trump because he said he could fix their plight. Yea, right. How long it will take them to realize they have been bamboozled again is the question. Things could get hot if some of their issues aren’t dealt with.
    Then again, we shouldn’t assume that he will even have 4 years to do anything. I firmly believe he won’t have eight and neither would have Hillary. There’s always resignation or impeachment when he makes some wrong, possibly illegal turns, even with a Republican Senate. God forbid a third happening that I won’t mention but I’m sure you know what I’m referring to.
    Many were hoping for an end to the election issues and political chatter which we’ve lived with for 18 months. Unfortunately, there is no end and where that takes us, few actually know at this point.

    The Alt-right is also a source of support for Donald Trump and we are the ones who Hillary Clinton called deplorable’s and others call haters and bigots. The real truth is that we are in favour of White European people and we are for natural and divine law. We oppose crime, perversion and white genocide.
    Our opponents hate us because of who and what we are and because they love what we are rightly against. Up until possibly Nov, 8th evil doers and their fans for owned and controlled the world of government, finance, media, education and the elitist globalist oligarchies and they did turn our nations into Sodom, Marxist slave states and multicultural dysfunctional societies where no one who isn’t rich could afford to live. White Europeans were striped of their countries, priced out of their countries and when it comes to employment, financial and legal matters totally victimized to the point of genocide. Perhaps Donald Trump can make some changes legally to turn some of that around.
    This is not just something that affects Americans but it is a Pan European issue that concerns every clued in white person between Vladivostok in the east to the two Vancouver’s in the west. We need to have racial self determination ,to remain what we are and to prosper and thrive as a unique subspecies of mankind. That is not hate, bigotry and immorality! That is love and respect for what is holy and natural.
    It is diametrically opposed to what the establishment or globalist elites and their fellow travellers have stood for and for that reason the people who have been misleading and trying to destroy our people have got to go. Either on their feet or feet first. God willing and Donald Trump and others able this will be the beginning of our liberation and empowerment as a people and the beginning of a process that brings the enemies of our people to justice. Amen.

    Armstrong – The Real Clinton Conspiracy that Backfired – The Worst Candiate in American History

    Meanwhile, Hillary lost not merely because she misread the “real” people, she decided to run a very divisive and nasty negative campaign, which has fueled the violence ever since. According to WikiLeaks emails from campaign John Podesta, Clinton colluded with the DNC and the media to raise what they thought would be the extreme right among Republicans to then make her the middle of the road to hide her agenda.

    Clinton called this her “pied piper” strategy, that intentionally cultivated extreme right-wing presidential candidates and that would turn the Republicans away from their more moderate candidates. This enlisted mainstream media who then focused to Trump and raise him above all others assuming that would help Hillary for who would vote for Trump. This was a deliberate strategy all designed to propel Hillary to the White House.

            According to Carroll Quigley (Clinton’s professor):

            THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIPS, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes’s seventh will, are known to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous wills left his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation and expansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is that this secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, and continues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret society is not a childish thing like the Ku Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secret passwords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately. It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation. It does, however, exist and holds secret meetings, over which the senior member present presides. At various times since 1891, these meetings have been presided over by Rhodes, Lord Milner, Lord Selborne, Sir Patrick Duncan, Field Marshal Jan Smuts, Lord Lothian, and Lord Brand.

            —————————————

            You should take a close look at that list in my previous post and learn more about who Rhodes was.

            I would be willing to bet that Rhodes Scholars have reason to echo this comment by John Maynard Keynes: “I work for a Government I despise for ends I think criminal.”

      Hi all. Im a long time reader and listener (if you can call 6 years a long time) and now first time writer. Just felt compelled to add a comment after one of the most bizaare weeks seen on world markets and specifically the pms market. How does gold go up some $60 within 24 hours on rumours that Trump would win and then do a total about face and retreat over $100 from its peak during the aformentioned move once his victory is confirmed??? Talk about a suckers rally. After witnessing this, i can come to no other conclusion than the fundamentals no longer apply when these sorts of moves are triggered. Analysts and experts the world over are left scratching their heads over what has transpired in the gold market. Even in the broader market here in Australia, we were told that the futures market was fortelling a 3% fall at the opening, post Trump win. What happened… it whipsawed the opposite direction 3%, thus giving the Australian all ordinaries market its best day in several years. WOW!!!! Good luck kicking a goal when the goal posts are constantly moved without warning. Ancient chinese philosophy suggests “may you live in interesting times”… mmmm indeed!

After all wasnt the reason for the price surge in pms due to the unknown of a possible Trump win? Why would such a drastic change arise on the mere confirmation of this unknown? If so, people really are being spooked, and perhaps need to step back and take stock. This brings all new meaning to the so called volatile nature of the small pms markets.

    Yes, great show this weekend gentlemen. The solution to America’s infrastructure and debt problems is simple. First, create massive investment in infrastructure by various federal government bodies like social security and they can get paid tolls ect. Like China has done, this also solves funding short falls for these government entities. The Federal government can solve the debt problem by first have the Federal Reserve buy up all new issue of government bonds like Japan and retire the debt sometime in the future and by doing this soon will not hurt the US dollar’s value, it will make it stronger. Dollar value is based on confidence and I as a Canuck, would value the US dollar more. This rational approach may not be good for gold. Your thoughts and Thanks Nic

        Anti-Trump Protests: Proof Of Professional Activist Involvement

        In a story from November 12, USA Today writes an article to discredit the idea that the professional activist community is involved with organizing anti-Trump protests. They invite you to meet the protesters. USA today presents them as ordinary people. However, WikiLeaks exposes them as experienced protest organizers and activists.

        USA Today presents the protests as spontaneous, involving people from “all walks of life” – certainly not professional protesters. If anyone in the crowd has protest experience, it hasn’t been since the Vietnam Era:

        They come in all ages and walks of life, unflinching and determined to be heard.

        Mothers with young children, hoping to impart an up-close lesson in history. Animated college students stretching their political vocal cords for the first time. Aging Baby Boomers who haven’t toted a protest sign since their anti-war days in the 1970s.
        Ben Wikler, Washington director for the professional activist group MoveOn, is quoted – only to insist that these are not organized protests but an “enormous outpouring of spontaneous energy and concern.”

        MoveOn urged Americans to gather peacefully to “take a continued stand against misogyny, racism, Islamophobia and xenophobia.” Within hours, about 275 protests and vigils had been organized nationwide Wednesday, Wikler said. “There was an enormous outpouring of spontaneous energy and concern.”

        So should we expect that everyone quoted in that article is there out of spontaneous concern? Would a reputable newspaper properly identify its sources, noting if they were known activists and organizers? Let’s meet USA Today’s first protester:

Im hearing some speculation that some electors are allegedly being coerced into backflipping from their initial candidate (Trump). Is it plausible they could change their nomination before the Dec 12 vote is cast, thus allowing Hillary to gain the 270 number she would need for the win?? Thoughts???. Can this legally happen within the college electoral system?

        It’s possible the Electoral College electors could switch but that is very unlikely. I’d say it’s unlikely even one would do it and there is virtually no chance enough would do it so Hillary wins.

        But what do I know? I predicted Shillary would win in a landslide. Also predicted Brexit would be voted down.

    Many gold bulls are clinging onto hope that gold is in a bull market.

    They view this downside price action as a normal correction.

    This is based on the upside breakout that has taken out some key levels in both the metals and the stocks.

    They are concluding that gold is in a bull market and this is just a correction.

    However their analysis could be very faulty and erroneous.

    You might remember how Carbon 14 dating is used to determine the age of rocks.

    Knowing the half life “scientist” determine how much Carbon 14 is in the rock and then they extrapolate backwards using the half life to determine how old the rock is.

    Of course their projections and analysis are completely erroneous.

    Their projections are erroneous because of faulty assumptions and incorrect data.

    For example when and outside event or influence (an outside variable introduced into their controlled environment) happens their assumptions break down.

    For example when lightning strikes the rock (this is the outside variable) the amount of Carbon 14 is radically altered.

    They do not and cannot take into account the outside influence or factor the lightning has had on the rock.

    Trump is the lightning hitting the rock.

    The election of Donald Trump forever changes the outcome.

    Only a very few astute handicappers including myself projected a Trump victory.

    Most everyone else was completely blind sided and caught on the wrong side.

    The stock markets and gold are reacting in violent ways.

    People are exiting gold in mass and flocking into stocks due to Trumps pro growth agenda.

    The yields are rising, the dollar is strengthening, and this is putting additional pressure on gold.

    There is no arguing this economy is in serious trouble but it has been before.

    If anyone can change the course for the good it is Donald Trump, think what you want of him.

    And so as he implements his pro growth policy the economy will revitalize.

    Stocks will be the place to be for the next several years.
    Gold will go nowhere but down.

    Because of Trumps win you can no longer look at the charts and conclude gold is still in a bull market.

    This is why they say past performance is no guarantee of future success.

    Lighting has hit the rock. All bets are off.

    As the weeks and months go by gold will continue to falter and bulls will come to the realization that the game has changed.

    Many will continue to hold on to faulty assumptions and inaccurate data, like rising rates, it they will completely miss the big picture.

    When a stone is thrown into a pond it makes a ripple, when a boulder is thrown in makes a tsunami.

    Trump is the bolder and he is about to make a lot of waves.

      And some gold bulls are content with the knowledge that gold is in a bull market.

      “Donald Trump… has warned many times in recent months that stock markets are in a bubble. In his first presidential debate with Clinton on September 26th, Trump said “Believe me, we are in a bubble right now, and the only thing that looks good is the stock market, but if you raise interest rates even a little bit, that’s going to come crashing down. We are in a big, fat, ugly bubble.”

      JTL: All of your points are perfectly true and perfectly meaningless at the same time. Gold is indeed in a new bull market and ending a perfectly predictable correction as all bull markets go through. The more people screaming for new lows, the better opportunity for those few who get it.

      It’s a correction. Live with it.

    And do you actually think Trump wants to take over the presidency and crash the bubble?

    He said it campaigning to show how Obamas policies and the Feds created a massive bubble and how bad it would be voting for Hillary because she would continue their policies.

    When it was someone else’s problem it was easy to shine the spot light on it, now that it’s his problem he will have to keep it inflated.

    The price action we are seeing is speaking loud and clear, loud and clear.

      Re: “And do you actually think Trump wants to take over the presidency and crash the bubble?”

      It’s funny that you think he has a say in the matter.

      Adam Hamilton has it right:

      “He (Trump) said when they hike rates “you will see some very bad things happen. Because the Fed is not doing their job. The Fed is being more political than Secretary Clinton.” Trump knows these stock markets are fake.

      There’s no doubt he and his smart advisors also know that market cycles can’t be stopped. If the stock markets are overdue for a bear market due to wild overvaluation, one is inevitable no matter what the government is doing. And politically, it makes no sense at all to try and delay the inexorable bear. They tend to run for a year or two, and early in a new presidency is when weak stocks do the least political damage.

      If straight-talking Donald Trump continues to be honest with the American people about the state of the US stock markets and the great economic damage the Fed’s near-zero rates are causing, all this post-election euphoria is going to yield to serious selling. If Republicans see this as unavoidable, they will want to encourage rather than suppress it. They want the stock bear to end well before the coming elections.

      The sooner that Fed-delayed stock bear starts, the sooner it ends. That greatly increases the odds of a subsequent new stock bull being well underway by Trump’s 2020 re-election bid or maybe even the 2018 mid-term Congressional elections.”

    No Matthew I’m not saying Trump has a say in the matter.

    But he certainly isn’t going to go out of his way to hasten it along (the crash)

    You speak as if just because he is warning about a bubble he is going to welcome a crash.

    He will do whatever it takes to kick the can down the road just like all the rest

      I didn’t say he would or should welcome a crash but he should and probably will let the overdue bear market get started.
