200k aging Republican bikers, a decent percentage likely unemployed. More than 200k “Liberal” boomer democrats, many also unemployed. Another 50-200k millennial anti-Trump protestors. What could go wrong?
To avoid the impression that it is losing the war on smog, China has come up with something typically "innovative": it has ordered local meteorological bureaus to suspend issuing smog alerts, raising suspicions the government is covering up information about the country's air pollution as public anger over the issue grows.
"It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever."
President Maduro is correct. Venezuela’s economic woes are indeed the result of economic war and mafia attacks. But Venezuela’s political elites are the mafia, and they alone have waged a decades-long economic war on Venezuela’s people.
"Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning's sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought. Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately."
December was a fitting end to a difficult year for hedge funds: the single largest month of outfles in 2016, December also marked the sixth month of outflows in the last seven, and resulted in Q4 not only being the fifth consecutive quarter of redemptions, but also the largest quarterly outflow from the industry since Q1 2009.
Speaking to Bloomberg TV in Davos, JPM CEO Jamie Dimon said “the euro zone may not survive,” and added that "what went wrong is going wrong for everybody, not just going wrong for Britain, but in some ways it looks like they’re kind of doubling down."
It is time to "acknowledge the fact" that "US allies have grossly interfered in America’s internal affairs, in the election campaign" Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said."We noticed that Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Theresa May, and other European leaders" did so and "demonized" Donald Trump during the election campaign.

As President Obama held his last press conference this afternoon, basking in the warm afterglow of an over-sampled poll showing his favorability near record highs, it would appear he (and the press corps) forgot to mention that for most Americans - the 80% in production and nonsupervisory roles - this morning's data showed real wages actually dropping for the first time since 2013. Not exactly the rosy picture of economic growth being spun by the media as Obama transitions to Trump.
Like a nagging case of "pneumonia" that brings with it random, yet inevitable, bouts of full-body paralysis, the rumors/threats of Hillary tossing her hat in the ring for the New York City Mayoral race simply won't go away.
Just one day after the bitter mainstreamers at ABC/WaPo and CNN used their "oversamples" of Democrats to rig polls showing an unprecedented unfavorable rating of the incoming President-elect, those same outlets have used those same methodologies to engineer stellar approval ratings for Obama in new polls out today...shocking.
"[Rogoff] has the audacity to say that people should not look at their short-term personal losses, but rather look at the long-term vision of the central banks. He is such an elitist. I cannot find words appropriate to describe how this academic, who has zero experience in the real world, is incapable of comprehending that his Marxist style intervention is creating the next crisis."
"I want to be loud and clear: populism scares me... policy makers need to 'man-up' and pay for the social cohesion that we need to keep our societies advancing... it probably means more redistribution than we have in place at the moment and accept that this may be a higher tax burden on people..."

Want to know why US stocks feel so fragile?Perhaps we can blame Wall Street analysts. Even after two months of market buzz about lower taxes, infrastructure spending and less regulation juicing investor expectations for better earnings growth, they refuse to bump their revenue or earnings estimates for 2017.
