World Economy Wobbles As Deep-State-Shill Distracts

...but if China can’t sell its products, it can’t afford to buy resources... resource prices plunge... and consumer prices follow, aggravating weak demand with lower prices, falling money velocity... gloom, doom... recession, depression... and worldwide deflation. Then, as the world’s attention is fixed on the sordid business of the U.S. election, with its contest between reality-TV Big Shot Donald Trump vs. Deep State Shill Hillary Clinton, the world economy wobbles.

An Establishment In Panic

Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace as to whether he would accept defeat should Hillary Clinton win the election, Donald Trump replied, “I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense.” But what do these chattering classes and establishment bulletin boards think the Donald is going to do if he falls short of 270 electoral votes? What explains the hysteria of the establishment? In a word, fear.

Germans Are Leaving Germany 'In Droves'

"We refugees... do not want to live in the same country with you. You can, and I think you should, leave Germany. And please take Saxony and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) with you... Why do you not go to another country? We are sick of you!" - Aras Bacho an 18-year-old Syrian migrant

Unraveling The Aleppo / Mosul Riddle

There’s no question Baghdad needs to take back Mosul from ISIS/ISIL/Daesh. It could not do it before. In theory, the time is now. The real question is the conflicting motivations of the large “who’s who” doing it...

Will Draghi Avert A Tantrum: The Full ECB Checklist

Draghi will make clear that tapering has not yet even been considered. He will emphasize that the program runs until March, at least, and so they have plenty of time to plan the exit. There’ll be no taper-tantrum today. Far from tapering, it’s likely that the Asset Purchase Program will be prolonged even further beyond March, although perhaps not formally so at this meeting.

Ignore The Pink Elephant In The Room: Dilbert's Adams Explains Anti-Trumpers' Shared Illusion

"Trump represents what is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring real change to a government that is bloated and self-serving. Reasonable people can disagree on policies and priorities. But Trump is the bigger agent for change, if that’s what you think the country needs. I want voters to see that choice for what it is...

Duterte Visit To China: Obama's Pivot Has Failed

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte arrived in China to meet with Chinese Premier Xi Xinping. Duterte has become a very controversial figure in Asian politics as he has publicly excoriated U.S. President Barack Obama’s treatment of him and his country.
