A problem has emerged as Wall Street scrambles to trade on Trump tweets: while HFT strategies can quickly identify that a stock was referenced in a tweet, isolating if the actual message is bullish, bearish or indifferent presents a major challenge.
"Markets don’t have a purpose any more - they just reflect whatever central planners want them to. Why wouldn’t it lead to the biggest collapse? My strategy doesn’t require that I’m right about the likelihood of that scenario. Logic dictates to me that it’s inevitable..."
Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was forced to apologize and explain himself for what he said, even if he wasn’t directly comparing Obama to Hitler. Yet when Democrats and opponents of a Trump presidency make the comparisons of the president-elect to Hitler, they don’t need to apologize or explain themselves further.
“You are going to fail. You are going to find that it is not so easy to govern Iraq. You are going to fail in Iraq because you do not know the language, the history, and you do not understand the Arab mind.”
If the CIA is actually stupid enough to believe this, the US is without a competent intelligence agency. Of course, the CIA didn’t say and doesn’t believe any such thing. The fake news stories in the presstitute media are all sourced to unnamed officials. Former British ambassador Craig Murray described the reports accurately: “bullshit.”
The WaPo's latest "evidence-free" piece, according to which the CIA issued a "secret" assessment that Russia helped Trump win the presidency, could have tremendous consequences not only for the the Trump administration, the upcoming electoral college vote, but for the US itself.
"I am confident in saying, at this point," Republican elector Christopher Suprun said, "I don’t think I will be the only one voting for someone other than Donald Trump. At this point there are people who have reached out to me. Again it wouldn’t be my place to name who they are."
One year after narrowly losing to Angela Merkel (and tied with ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi), Donald Trump has finally won the 2016 Time "Person of the Year Award", the person - or idea - who according to the magazine has most influenced the news and the world in the past year, for good or ill.
If this bill becomes law, it can be used to discredit and destroy truthtellers as agents of foreign intelligence. In other words, the message is: if you dispute our lies you are a foreign agent and subject to arrest or elimination. This is the state of democracy in America today. More than any other country, the United States needs to be liberated.
Under the cover of battling “fake news,” the mainstream U.S. news media and officialdom are taking aim at journalistic skepticism when it is directed at the pronouncements of the U.S. government and its allies.
"...this group of ostensible experts far more resembles amateur peddlers of primitive, shallow propagandistic clichés than serious, substantive analysis and expertise; and is engaging in extremely dubious McCarthyite tactics about a wide range of critics and dissenters... WaPo should be very proud: it staked a major part of its news story on the unverified, untestable assertions of this laughable organization."
In today’s world, reaching the magical “millionaire” mark of a $1 million net worth is less meaningful than it used to be. In fact, roughly 9% of households in the United States have “millionaires” living in them – this is a record amount, caused partially through the devaluation of currency over time.
