Wall Street Tense After
´Fiscal Cliff´ Setback

CNBC, by Patti Domm

Original Article

Posted By:horacer, 12/21/2012 1:04:12 AM

Friday could be a tense day for markets, as a resolution to the "fiscal cliff" appears less likely in the final trading days of the year. Stock futures fell sharply Thursday evening after House Speaker John Boehner said he failed to mount support for his "Plan B" version of a bill that would raise taxes only on families earning more than $1 million, a plan already opposed by the White House. GOP leaders said the House would not take up any other votes until after Christmas,

The stock market is worth watching because they´re getting insider reports on what´s eventually going to happen.You know investment advisers are being sued now if they give bad advice and somebody loses money.I can imagine lawsuits fling if there´s a crash simply because Obama´s stuck on stupid with his demand for the 3% on suckers making $200,000.

If there is a crash,I hope it´s Obama´s supporters and donors who take the haircut.

This is a great time to be poor so you don´t have to worry about this stuff. There´s no such thing as falling out of a basement window.

Somehow this will be another case of not letting a crisis go to waste and Obama and his heathens will exploit it for all it´s worth.

Don´t be tense, lie back and enjoy it.

Never a chance we´re not going over the cliff.

I monitor the Dow futures every night like a hawk. THe changes are usually +/- 40 points or so. Earlier this evening we were down -300 points. If that scales up accordingly, we could easily see 400-500 point drop tomorrow. I don´t think that will be the end, either. Tell me why it should be going up -- there´s only one reason for positive movement these days, and that is the massive money printing going on at the Fed for the clear (but hidden) purpose of propping up the stock market for the benefit of Obama´s negotiating strength. If the market finally realizes the sham that is being perpetrated, we could see many 500 point losses in a row.

This whole fecal cliff Mumbo Jumbo is a stupid media creation. If the Bush tax cuts expire as Dear Leader and the virginal "conservatives" so desire, Barry will just scold the evil GOP for not playing ball and then pass a "massive" tax break. Historians will refer to it as the "Dear Leader tax cuts"...but at least the spitwad boys will have their revenge against John Boehner. How dare he remove anyone from committee chair without Mark Levin´s approval?

Wall Street seems to invest quite a lot of faith in the intentions of Barack Obama. If so, it is pure madness, making into a joke any so-called knowledge they may have about economics and markets. True economics is the diametric opposite of political correctness - if Wall Street doesn´t know that, it knows nothing.

When “Plan B” failed why didn’t Boehner bring up a simple bill to extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone for another 2 years, lower the corporate tax rate, abolish the AMT and for good measure, even tho not many of us would have liked it, extended unemployment for another year? The Republicans could have made the democrats own this thing, but they didn’t even try.

The Dow was jittery yesterday early on but then closed up.

If we go "over the cliff" and go back to Clinton era taxes, the Dims will be the first to deny that this is a tax increase, though that is exactly what it will be. And they will on the other hand blame the Pubs that everyone will be paying more taxes. We will all be paying more taxes, no matter who we are.

The Wall St Journal gave a clue recently that they were hoping for a corporate rate cut if they went along with some personal rate increases. This is the real disunity on the right which is playing into the Obama agenda. You throw scraps to the monster hoping he will be satisfied and not eat you. It doesn´t work and it makes little difference in the end because it is still money taken from the private sector to be wasted in the bloated public sector. If we want to unite the right it is here that we should do it not to save the cry baby speaker.

After Jan, being poor will be less attractive. In order to keep the Bush rates in effect, the GOP allowed Obama to put refundable credits in the tax code such that people working at pay levels below targets actually received a government check each month. That will end and increase revenue 27 billion in 2013. The Middle Class tax hikes will bring in 179 billion. The other expiring non-rich cuts will bring in 84 billion. Finally, the increase on the rich will bring in only 42 billion. The Dems have spun the Bush tax cuts as only affecting the rich. Their supporters are going to find out just how wrong this is in mid-January.

Central Standard Time is what counts and the 23rd could be the day. Of course it has naught to do with the End of the World. Sheesh. We have 5 dead days for calendar adjustment every 50 years. Party like a MAYA! At the end of those 5 days we need a beautiful and noble woman to be stripped, humiliated, flayed and devoured. The priests shall tap passers-by with her shin bones for luck while wearing her skin. Sound like a fun party? Modern man is weak.

DAMASCUS, Syria — Syrian government forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah militants forged ahead with their assault on a key rebel district in the central city of Homs Sunday, activists said, as President Bashar Assad’s forces try to crush resistance in the few remaining opposition-held neighborhoods in the city known as the ‘‘capital of the revolution.’’ The push on Homs is part of a broader government offensive on rebel-held areas that has seen regime troops retake some of the territory they have lost to opposition fighters in Syria’s more than 2-year-old conflict.

(NICOSIA) - The president of Cyprus assured his people a bailout deal he struck with the European Union was in their best interests, but banks will remain closed until Thursday - and even then subject to capital controls to prevent a run on deposits. Returned from fraught negotiations in Brussels, President Nicos Anastasiades said late on Monday the 10-billion euro ($13 billion) rescue plan agreed there in the early hours of the morning was "painful" but essential to avoid economic meltdown. He agreed to close down the second-largest bank, Cyprus Popular, and inflict heavy losses on big

The United Nations will launch an investigation into Syrian claims that rebels used chemical weapons against its troops, even as U.S. officials told CNN Thursday that initial intelligence reports suggest no such weapons were used. The announcement follows days of claims by the Syrian government and rebel that the each used chemical weapons against the other side, allegations that have raised concern the ongoing civil war had entered a new, more deadly phase. U.S. President Barack Obama and other American officials have said in recent days there was no evidence to substantiate the reports that

Stocks turned lower in choppy trading Tuesday, with the euro tumbling to its lowest level since November, amid worries that Cyprus will reject its bailout plan. The Dow Jones Industrial Average turned lower, dragged by Caterpillar. If the blue-chip index closes lower, it will log its first three-day losing streak this year. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also tilted lower. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, jumped near 15. Among key S&P sectors, consumer staples held modest gains, while energy slumped.

Cyprus´ embattled president was on Sunday in talks with Brussels and political rivals to ease the terms of a planned levy on smaller deposit holders as he tried to scrape together a parliamentary majority for a €10 billion bailout for the debt-laden island. President Nicos Anastasiades is still intending to raise €5.8 billion from Cypriot bank accounts to help fund the bailout, an unprecedented move by the eurozone that could yet spark wider concern about the safety of bank deposits in the bloc. Cypriot authorities were weighing an additional bank holiday on Tuesday pending emergency parliamentary ratification of the deal which would

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
