"Libertarian" VP Candidate Will Focus His Energy On Trashing Trump

While Weld insisted he still supports Johnson, he said he is now interested primarily in blocking Trump from winning the presidency and then potentially working with longtime Republican leaders such as Mitt Romney and Haley Barbour to create a new path for the party after the election - "...not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States..."

The Noose Is Tightening Quickly On The Global Economy

At bottom, it is not central bank stimulus and intervention alone that drives equities and bond markets; it is the naive faith and willful ignorance of average market participants.  There is a problem with this kind of economic model, however.  Reality is never kept in check indefinitely.  Fiscal truths will be exposed, one way or another.

No US Presidential candidate since William McKinley in 1896 has received as nearly-unanimous financial backing from America’s wealthiest 0.01% as Hillary Clinton. What William Jennings Bryan was to them in 1896, is what Donald John Trump is to them 120 years later in 2016.

Whoever presides over this fiasco from the White House is going to be a bigger bag-holder than old Herbert Hoover in 1929...
