"The CIA has demanded Trump is not elected. Pentagon generals have demanded he is not elected. The pro-war New York Times - taking a breather from its relentless low-rent Putin smears - demands that he is not elected. Something is up. These tribunes of “perpetual war” are terrified that the multi-billion-dollar business of war... will be undermined..."
The U.S. election farce continues.
Anyone have any idea where we really are on this? The press is continuing with the anti-Trump (you must vote for Hillary otherwise you are a red neck) stance... but where are we really? The polls are rubbish. So we don't know. Can they rig it? Well yes I think so.
FWIW Trump would be a positive for the USD and world markets IMVHO. It's not much but when your only alternative is a reality TV star you go with the reality TV star and hope for the best. :-)

More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year.
"The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees," Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.

IF the primary model is correct that Donald will take the presidency then stocks dive and euro rally should correlate
Paris ib 17:19:53 GMT - 08/18/2016
FWIW - "However unpredictable the ascent of Donald Trump onto the stage of presidential politics may have been, one forecast model has been highly confident for months that he would win the election on November 8, 2016. The Primary Model predicted on March 7, 2016 that Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton with 87 percent certainty."
"Donald Trump never actually wanted to be president of the United States.... So, on June 16 of last year, he rode down his golden escalator and opened his mouth. With no campaign staff, no 50-state campaign infrastructure — neither of which he needed because, remember, this wasn’t going to be a real campaign — ...And then... you can see the moment it finally dawned on him... that “Oh censored!” revelation: “I’m actually going to be the Republican nominee — and my rich beautiful life is f#*@ing over!” ..."
and that sounds just about right. What does it say about American politics? Nothing good when a reality star can run away with the nomination.. but it does mean that Hillary may win by default if the Donald manages to back out some way or other between now and November. Hillary is bad news in my opinion.... Strangely enough the Donald was the nearest thing to the average Joe they had....
USD implications? Bearish of course. You can't have this kind of electoral circus and expect to be taken seriously as a country. The reality star who doesn't want the job and the other candidate who doesn't do press conferences... just because.
Judicial Watch President Tom Filton said in a press release that Clinton "hid" the 44 emails on purpose.
"No wonder Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin hid emails from the American people, the courts and Congress," he said in a press release. "They show the Clinton Foundation, Clinton donors, and operatives worked with Hillary Clinton in potential violation of the law."
SHARYL ATTKISSON: I Saw Ex-Media Bureau Chief Urge Journalists to Defeat Trump (VIDEO)

Tech Companies Apple, Twitter, Google, and Instagram Collude to Defeat Trump
The usual suspects from left-leaning major media outlets like The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN and even entertainment networks are doing everything in their power to ensure a Clinton victory. Look no further than to Wolf Blitzer mincing around and drinking wine at the Democratic convention, celebrating Hillary’s nomination. But the propaganda skewing this election runs much deeper than just the media: our iPhones, iPads, social media networks, Google and even video games are all in the tank for Hillary Clinton—and it’s chilling.......
Why are the big giants afraid of Trump? what do they know that scares them? are they afraid to lose control?
When those conglomerates are sacared of Trump he must be doing or carrying a message that is GOOD for the rest of the nation/world.

dc CB 00:56:17 GMT - 08/13/2016
Our computer has been projecting a huge spike in Third Party activity for 2016. Trump is riding that wave even though he is inside the Republican camp by name only. You have this letter of so-called 50 national security advisers saying Trump is dangerous. He is dangerous to them because he is AGAINST waging wars, unlike both the Bush and Clinton Administrations who created war under the control of bureaucrats.
Over the next 90 days, the news reports will do everything possible to paint Trump as dangerous and Hillary as Mother Teresa. This is all part of the corruption. The Democrats are linked to Wall Street and to the media.
It is a sad day when mainstream media is bought and paid for. They are no longer the guardians of our liberty. More and more people are just ignoring them for they are no longer trustworthy.
The thing about "Winning" the ratings is even with dedicated fans you still have only a minority. Donald Trump may have some noisy illiterate malcontents but it isn't even the majority of Republicans let alone Americans. Hillary is surely a crook but Trump simply hasn't the chops to be anything but an historical footnote and the reality is his "movement" will actually deliver less power his followers as he shifts the senate and house to the Democrats.
A President could have put up Ja.on Bourne to be Supreme Court judge but the senate etc have to pass it. Trump is weakening his constituency with every ill-constructed utterance.

xagjpy was to thin this week they new usa was bad report margin's fluctuating in this pl.
Moments ago, when we showed the newly released Clinton 2015 tax return, we posted a rhetorical question: "how much of the Clinton charity donations went to the Clinton Foundation? Taking a deduction for contributing to the employer of your daughter and expense payer of your husband is awesome."
We now know the answer: as page 29 of the tax return reveals, of the $1,042,000 in charitable cash contributions, exactly $1 million went to, you guessed it, the Clinton Family Foundation, whose expenses pay among others those Clinton family members and friends employed by the foundation, like Chelsea Clinton who happens to be the foundation's Vice Chair.
"Trump.. has no foreign policy credentials.... But he has... healthy common sense. That is what propelled him to the Republican nomination.... The choice, sadly, lies between an unlearned interloper with common sense and... mediocre ideologues incapable of learning from past failures, clinging to their careers because they are unsuited for honest work."
P.S. All the foundations out there are a rort. Including the Bill Gates Foundation. They are just GIGANTIC tax loopholes. I mean Romeo Beckham has one for his modelling earnings for godssake. Bill Gates buys huge chunks of shares... no over sight, precious little regulation and massive tax advantages. Meaning: no tax. :-)
In that sense picking on the Clinton foundation is a bit of a joke. They should all be closed down, as should most charities and churches. Or at least they should lose their tax free status.
CB.... a conspiracy theory? That made me laugh. We are drowning in conspiracy 'theories'.... the censorship is amazing. The propaganda is amazing. Hats off to these demagogues they know how to move the masses. Remains to be seen if it works. Putting someone as unappealing as Hillary Clinton (with her dead-eyed speeches and robot-like body language) up for election has to mean something. I mean are they that desperate for candidates for office that Hillary is the best they can do?
Makes you think that the weirdos in the back rooms making these kind of decisions are even more mind blowingly weird. How did they not notice the defects in the Hillary Clinton candidacy? I mean how?

Clinton Cash is from the book, which has been on the NYTimes NonFiction bbest seller list for quite some time. When it came out it was reviewed and "vetted" by the MSM, including a 4000 word NYT article.
It is about the Clinton Foundation.
But now MSM won't touch a review of the movie or even mention it. It's now a "conspiracy" theory.
Paris ib 16:41:16 GMT - 08/04/2016
There seems to be a lot of this stuff out there. But then you got: a) she's a woman, glass ceiling etc b) and the corporate media which is totally pro-Hillary.
Gonna be interesting. Can the Clintons get around all this? Will the Donald help Hillary into the Whitehouse in the end? This whole election is a laugh a minute.
CB think it's a bit more extensive than that. There is the military industrial complex just salivating at all the new military spending and wars which are on the cards if Hillary gets in.
"Hillary Clinton ...is catering to the arms industry, which needs to keep the American people scared of various “threats” in order to continue draining the nation’s wealth into their profitable enterprises. She needs the support of military men and women who believe in all those threats invented by intellectuals in think tanks and editorial offices."

While we have often heard that members of Congress, who are not only exempt from insider trading oversight, are also ardent daytraders we had never seen it in action.
The following publicly filed monthly Periodic Transaction Report by Democrat Congresswoman, Judy Chu, shows us just how pervasive daytrading is not only for algos, but for those who supposedly are paid to serve their constituents. What is interesting is the size of the trades - between $1,000 and $15,000 each, this is not some novice, penny pincher; what is even more interesting are the underlying securities of choice: volatile, and levered, calls and puts on not only the S&P500, but also on some of the most volatile securities out there, such as the VIX.
if Trump wins and they actually swear him in. He's said he'll make Rudy Giuliani his Attny Gen cut him lose to indict the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. There are soooooooooooo many people tied to that Billion Dolla "Charity" who would go to any length to NOT see that happen.
That is what a great deal of this Never Trump is all about.
On another note: Why He Wins (seen on ZH)
People are sick and tired of corrupt politicians and as Jim Quinn so eloquently notes "the propaganda press telling us it’s raining while they piss down our backs."
Politicians and the mainstream media have zero credibility. We don’t believe a word they utter...
JP - the President is always defined by events -- whatever agenda is usually washed away by Recession, War, or Plague // The next president will only be able to truly affect the future w/ Supreme Court nominees (even there you don't always get what's on the label) // If the Senate went back to simple majority that would be significant - Trump will have short coat tails for Senators BUT may have more influence in House races // Clinton will not have a Dem Congress for two years -- Trump will have Repub Congress but maybe more trouble w/ them then w/ Dems
SEC and the Fed likely to get more unwanted attention from TRUMP than CLINTON // big things like taxes and trade are creatures of Congress - any PREZ can wish but
only Congress can DO
SO you can't prepare

Paris ib 19:06:17 GMT - 08/02/2016
Honestly the U.S. press at the moment acts as if there really shouldn't even BE a vote and only the chosen few (those who have been appropriately educated in all the most up-to-date dogmas and ideologies... that is the press and their friends) should get to choose the next President all by themselves. Because they would make the 'right' choice. Good grief. These self-righteous morons really scare me.
After every other major US health insurance provider already admitted to generating substantial losses on the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamcare, earlier today Aetna became the latest to report that its annual loss on Obamacare plans would be more than $300 million, and said it had scrapped plans to further expand its Obamacare business next year. More ominously, Aetna joined the biggest US health insurer UnitedHealth in reviewing how, if at all, it would continue providing ACA services in the 15 states it's currently in.
"A... question that is sometimes asked (after people are done making spurious claims that Donald Trump is insane, a misogynist, a racist, a fascist, a bad businessman, generally not very nice..) is whether he is qualified to govern. To my mind, this question reduces to a much simpler question: Is he qualified to fire people? And the answer is, Yes.... In fact “You’re fired!” is one of his trademark utterances. In fact, he just recently fired his very own campaign manager. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, heads up the entire cohort of people that need to be fired."
Not holding my breath on this one though. Read the NYT and according to them the Donald is Hitler / Putin etc. and Hillary is the only sane choice. The U.S. media has gone completely nuts in this election.
