The system as we know it cannot be sustained. Yellen and co. have been simply waiting for the right time to let the other shoe drop – namely, after it could influence the election even further in the direction of Trump’s populist uprising. Unfortunately, he will now be largely blamed for the great destruction that is scheduled to fall upon this nation. In fact, that is the very reason that Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com attributed to Trump’s victory when he predicted his election many months ago.
Something big is coming… prepare yourselves accordingly.
“The Will of the People” Is a Myth (reflector)
Thus, we’re forced to conclude there is no basis for the claim that a vote for candidate X means voter approval of that candidate’s agenda. Nor can we make any claims about the intensity of each voter’s preference for the candidate’s policy agenda. A mere cast vote tells us very little. Nor does the “will of the people” assertion take into account the fact that extremely few voters are involved in choosing the candidates that compete in the general election. As The New York Times pointed out this year, only 9 percent of Americans (14 percent of eligible voters) voted for either Clinton or Trump in the primary process.
And it appears the organization has been considering its strategy for quite a while now. On its site, you’ll find a link to a 33-page “Blue Book” wherein the organization answers any hypothetical questions about the state becoming its own country. The details for the secession — dubbed the #CalExit — include such topics such as “Will we join the United Nations?” and “Will we have our own Olympic team?”.
Here’s How Automation Will Prevent Trump’s Job Promises (Arthur Robey)
“[A]dvancements in technology and how they reshape our economy may also keep him from delivering on some of the major promises that made him so popular during the campaign season,” writes Wadhwa, who’s a fellow at Stanford University’s Rock Center for Corporate Governance, director of research for the Center for Entrepreneurship and Research Commercialization at Duke, and a distinguished fellow at the Singularity University.
Trump The Collapse With Gold (Tiffany D.)
The U.S. dollar is likely to weaken again. It weakened for several months after the December rate hike last year when investors realized soon thereafter that the Fed had made a mistake. It strengthened in recent weeks on expectations of a December rate hike this year, but now that that’s all but dead, the buck will again roll over.
Despite successfully revolting against Britain’s ruling monarchy, almost half of the elected representatives to the first US Congress (1789-1991) served alongside a blood relative. Since the US became an independent republic in 1789, almost 400 parent-child duos and more than 190 pairs of siblings have served in Congress. More than 700 families have had two or more members in Congress.
The Weather Forcast For Gas (Arthur Robey)
Just like the oil market, a gas rally requires supply to diminish, consumption to rise, or a combination of both. With gas, weather can make or break the market: Over the past five years, U.S. gas demand in the first quarter has averaged as low as 81 billion cubic feet a day and as high as 97 billion. This winter has been exceptionally mild in the northeast. Put that together with resilient U.S. gas production and you get today’s depressed gas market.
“In terms of the TPP agreement itself, Leader McConnell has spoken to that, and it’s something that he’s going to work with the president-elect to figure out where they go in terms of trade agreements in the future,” Wally Adeyemo, Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs told The Wall Street Journal late Friday.
