John Rubino over at Dollar Collapse – Thu 18 Apr, 2019

The Central Banks That Are Fighting For Inflation And Calm Markets

I chatted with John Rubino, Founder of the Dollar Collapse website about the situation that the central banks around the world. Most of them could not get out of their easy money policies, while the Fed managed to raise rates for a couple years but has now stopped, they are getting less impact for each dollar created. That all leads to low volatility and the possibility of inflation. The question is more how long can it go on for.

    I guess there are still some Trump stalwarts here at KER, but many who only warily supported him have concluded he’s a liar and a traitor.

    “Trump has kept some of his promises. So far, he has kept every promise that he made to the Jewish community. Yet he has reneged on his promises to white America – the promises that got him elected in the first place. It is a betrayal of the highest order…”

      Trump Cares About Two Things – Empire and the Stock Market
      Michael Krieger | Posted Monday Apr 8, 2019

      “Though not surprising, it’s nevertheless extraordinary to watch Donald Trump publicly and shamelessly morph into a George W. Bush era neocon when it comes to foreign policy, and a CNBC stock market cheerleader when it comes to the economy. Just like Barack Obama before him, Trump talked a good populist game …but once elected immediately turned around and prioritized the core interests of oligarchy.

      When it comes to militarism and empire, Trump’s hypocrisy and bait and switch is one for the record books.

      Like Obama before him, Trump’s abandonment of every important thing he ran on was noticeable early on…”

      Set up processing centers at the border to house the migrants and hold the hearings in one place. The Department of Justice should deploy dozens of immigration judges to hear the asylum claims at the border without releasing the migrants into the country. FEMA already owns thousands of travel trailers and mobile homes that it has used to address past hurricane disasters. Instead of selling them (which FEMA is currently doing), FEMA should ship them to the processing centers to provide comfortable housing for the migrants. In addition, a fleet of passenger planes should deployed to the processing centers. Anyone who fails in his or her asylum claim, or who is not seeking asylum and is inadmissible, should be flown home immediately. It would be possible to fly most migrants home within a few weeks of their arrival. Word would get out quickly in their home countries that entry into the United States is not as easy as advertised. The incentive to join future caravans would dissipate quickly.

        Promises? I don’t know. Not worth parsing through his every statement and deciding what was a lie, what was misdirection, and what was wilful misunderstanding of his many supporters who believed in MAGA and draining the swamp.

        I can’t imagine why I’d want to play lawyer over this with a man who pretends to be an American patriot but is really clearly an Israel Firster. It’s not surprising that you’ve warmed to him.

          Of course you don’t want to list the broken promises, GH, because those within his power to keep….HE KEPT.

          It was only that the Dummos stop him from keeping every promise; particularly with regard to the border.

          What a great Democratic Party….preferring to destroy the country just to get more votes.

            “Those within his power to keep…HE KEPT.”

            BS nonsense.

            It’s a matter of priorities regarding expenditure of political capital, and he’s shown his. Just like Bill Clinton showed his priority by focusing on NAFTA.

            Trump led his supporters to believe immigration and a new direction in foreign policy were higher priorities for him than they really are. And draining the swamp? The man has surrounded himself with horrible people whose interests do not align with those of his swing voters.

            I was slighlyly overly feisty yesterday–the notion that arresting Assange is a gambit that is not what it appears to, say, Ebolan, could be true, and needs to be borne in mind. But making excuses for politicians’ is a losers’ game.

            And even if the Assange affair is not what it appears, it could very easily be a gambit in Trump’s favor that has nothing to do with ‘MAGA’.

            My own opinion of Trump isn’t the point, though. My point was that disappointment with Trump is spreading quickly among a key segment of his supporters–swing voters who actually pay attention and whose vote cannot be taken for granted.

            A further point is that Trump and what he represents is not ‘politics as normal’.

            Trump was a hail Mary pass by the increasingly disenfranchised white majority who represent, for lack of a better term, traditional American values, and who are the descendants of what was the overwhelming majority when the Immigration Act of 1965 was passed.

            He may be better than Hillary ‘the lowest bar’ Clinton, or even somewhat ‘better than average’ for a president (or not).

            That’s not good enough.

            The demographic issue in the US is unconventional WAR, nothing less, as is Israel’s/Jews’ (some) corruption of American politics. Any country/people who do to another country/people what they have done to America are courting conflict.

            It IS war/treason respectively, and there is a very good chance that they eventually will be dealt with as such.

            Trump may very well represent the last opportunity to resolve this matter through politics rather than through ‘irregular’ means, and so far he is disappointing.

            Exactly, GH, those who put the facts first and understand just a little about the realities of the system are increasingly disappointed. The rest are probably flat earthers.

    It’s amazing the excuses Trumpsters make in order to see him in the best possible light.

    Imagine if Obama had arrested Assange. But now that Trump has done it, they choose to believe the arrest is a key strategic step in Trump’s imminent defeat of ‘The Swamp’.

    Trump true believers could be right, I suppose. But that’s not the way to bet.

      Isn’t it wonderful to have the loony Left attacking Trump, getting the clueless Right to close ranks in his defense?

      Pretty much the exact same, in mirror image, of the Obama debacle.

    The system is just too powerful for any President, the government is so entrenched and huge that anyone that even dares to try and bring change gets emasculated. I really believe that Trump thought he could be his own man but when he realized the gates of Washington were closed to him he capitulated. If he hadn’t the deep state would have made sure he couldn’t run for a second term or even worse. DT

          Rome, a good parallel. But today it’s happening in a greatly compressed timeframe, and not just in the US.

          What happened to Rome presumably unfolded in a natural process. Today’s situation appears orchestrated in a much more conscious, deliberate way. How else to explain that the exact same thing happening in many Western nations simultaneously?

    As for obstruction—Volume II—Attorney General Bill Barr noted Thursday that he disagreed with “some of the special counsel’s legal theories.” Maybe he had in mind Mr. Mueller’s proposition that he was entitled to pursue obstruction questions, even though that was not part of his initial mandate from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Or maybe it was Mr. Mueller’s long description of what a prosecution of the sitting president might look like—even though he acknowledged its legal impossibility. Or it could be Mr. Mueller’s theory that while “fairness” dictates that someone accused of crimes get a “speedy and public trial” to “clear his name,” Mr. Trump deserves no such courtesy with regard to the 200 pages of accusations Mr. Mueller lodges against him.

      Strassel ends on a high note, taking aim directly at the man himself:

      Mr. Mueller is an institutionalist, and many on his team were the same Justice Department attorneys who first fanned the partisan collusion claims. He was the wrong man to provide an honest assessment of the 2016 collusion dirty trick. And we’ve got a report to prove it.
