Blaming Trump For Stock Market
Drop And, Well...Everything

Trump´s Crash?: The media have used the stock market plunge not as an opportunity to enlighten readers how our markets work, but as yet another occasion to bash Trump. Don´t they ever get tired of it? Given Trump´s brash, take-no-prisoners nature when it comes to the media, it´s probably not surprising they might want some payback. But they do their readers no favor by politicizing yet another essential part of American life — the stock market. After three days in which the bellwether Nasdaq stock index fell 6.7%, anti-Trump schadenfreude was pervasive on the web and in the media. We ran a quick

The market never goes up forever. If you believe it does you´re probably better off putting your cash in your mattress. One should invest for the long haul and expect reversals from time to time. It’s just the nature of the beast.

It´s a correction, not a crash. Volatility will be hire with this level of activity and increases in the economy. Kinda like growing pains.

When the stock market is way up, there are always going to be investors who are going to cash in their stocks and take their profits. When enough of those position changes take place, the market usually goes down, and that is the time for smart investors to buy stocks at the resulting lower price. That’s usually called a market correction.

That’s always been the nature of the stock market, and anyone who does not understand that should not consider investing in stocks and instead put their money in a bank savings account. All that has nothing to do with President Trump.

I thought all the rising stock market activity the past few months were the result of Obamas policies. It´s take the credit, shift the blame for democrats, always!

Considering that the market has jumped from the high teens to the high twenties, this isn´t even a correction. When it dips below 20K, then it might be considered a correction. This current media noise is a good indication of how desperate they are to find something ´bad´ to hang on President Trump. Only the dimmest bulbs in the room or new investors who bought in heavy recently are alarmed by a small DOW dip. Everyone else is considering what to buy at a slight mark down.

With A Budget Like This,
Can Tax Hikes Be Far Behind?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 2/13/2018 8:03:06     Post Reply
Fiscal Policy: Unlike in previous years, when the president´s budget was declared dead on arrival as soon as it was released, President Trump´s budget was dead before it arrived, killed by a spendthrift Congress. Nevertheless, the budget does serve a purpose, if only to show how Republicans are paving the way for massive tax hikes down the road. News reports naturally are focusing on the "cuts" in Trump´s budget. But even if Congress hadn´t already upped the spending ante, Trump´s budget is hardly a testament to fiscal austerity. His budget has federal spending climbing by 5.8% this year, and 4.6% in 2019.

Governing: While our distracted national media fawn over a murderous dictator´s evil sister and pretend that the Rob Porter White House scandal means something, President Trump continues to remake our government. Quietly, Trump has begun to whittle away at the power and permanence of our nation´s bureaucratic ruling class by slashing regulations and limiting powers that Congress foolishly has allowed it to take over. It´s not merely the size of the bureaucracy that matters. It´s the increasing power that gives the anonymous men and women who toil in the U.S.´ unofficial fourth branch of government immense say over nearly every aspect of

Despite What You´ve Heard,
´Crumbling Infrastructure´ Is A Myth
Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 2/13/2018 7:59:20     Post Reply
Expect to hear the term "crumbling infrastructure" a lot in the days ahead, as Washington debates the merits of President Trump´s plan to boost spending on the nation´s roads, bridges, airports, railroads and whatnot by $1.5 trillion. What´s unlikely to come up in these discussions, however, is the question of whether the nation´s infrastructure is really "crumbling" at all. For the past four decades, there´s been a steady stream of dire warnings about how our aging infrastructure was rapidly falling apart, and that without a massive influx of federal spending, roads would be impassable, bridges would collapse, ports would be unusable, and

Student Loans Will Cost Taxpayers
$36 Billion: Thanks, Obama

Debt: The federal student loan program was supposed to make money. Instead it will cost tens of billions of dollars, forcing hardworking Americans to subsidize college-educated deadbeats. Who do we have to thank for that? A report from the Department of Education notes that the net cost of the federal government´s direct loan program is quickly heading into the red. This program, mind you, was supposed to be a moneymaker for the government, as students paid back federal loans with interest. But as it turns out, borrowers have been flocking toward various loan forgiveness programs, by which the government will lose money,

Don´t Cheer Minimum-Wage Hikes —
They´re Killing Millions Of Jobs

Wages: A large number of states and cities are raising their minimum wage this year, part of a wave of recent actions to help low-income workers. Sadly, not only will it not help, it will devastate many of them. Twenty-one states and Washington, D.C., will raise their minimum wage this year, under the misbegotten notion that it will help the poor, in particular struggling minority youth. It won´t. As a new study from the American Action Forum shows, not only will most workers not be better off, they will take a huge hit. Why? Common sense tells you that when you raise the

Big Government: Nothing brings together the two political parties in Washington like a bill that lets them spend more taxpayer money. Just look at the back slapping going on after the Senate agreed to a budget-busting bill. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell crowed about how the Senate leadership "worked hard to find common ground." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer added that "I believe we have reached a budget deal that neither side loves but both sides can be proud of. That´s compromise. That´s governing." If this budget agreement is what passes for governing in Washington, we´d like to see less of it, not

Russia Scandal: Bit by bit, piece by piece, the growing scandal of the FBI´s spying on the Trump campaign is being revealed for what it is: an effort to weaponize the federal intelligence bureaucracy for use by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Recent revelations point to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and a secretive group of supporters and hangers-on both inside and outside of the FBI and Justice Department as having a far deeper personal involvement in the investigation than first thought. Fears of a politicized and manipulative "deep state" are looking less paranoid by the day. The involvement

Go Figure: Tax Revenues Climbed $18
Billion In First Month Of GOP Tax Cuts

Fiscal Policy: The Congressional Budget Office says that federal revenues in January added up to $362 billion. That´s an increase of $18 billion— or 5.2% — from the year before. As a result, the government ran a surplus of $51 billion that month, which is equal to the previous January. Wait, weren´t the tax cuts supposed to bankrupt the country to benefit the rich? It almost looks like the tax cuts — which took effect in January — are paying for themselves. That wouldn´t be fair, either. As the CBO notes, the new payroll withholding scheduled hadn´t fully taken effect

Health Care: Amid the news crush of the week, it would have been easy to miss President Trump´s tweet blasting Britain´s National Health Service. As with everything else he does or says, Trump managed to get people riled up. This time, it was for telling the truth. On Monday, Trump tweeted that "The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!" The usual suspects expressed shock and horror that Trump

Democratic Elitism: It was nearly 10 years ago now that Barack Obama uttered his infamously arrogant "bitter clinger" comment to explain why Democrats don´t win every election. It didn´t go well. In April 2008, Obama was speaking at a private fundraiser in San Francisco and, assuming no one outside the room would hear what he had to say, stated the following: He said that jobs in small towns "have been gone now for 25 years. They fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate. And they

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle were in attendance on Monday as their portraits were unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. While President Obama´s striking portrait by Kehinde Wiley garnered audible gasps of awe from the audience, Michelle´s portrait was not as warmly welcomed. Many online said that Amy Sherald´s portrait didn´t even look like Michelle. ´Amy Sherald should have met Michelle Obama before making that portrait,´ one user wrote.

Shouldn’t official portraits of America’s presidents and first ladies attempt to resemble them? The point of these artistic exercises might seem archaic in the modern age, where photography can take the place of the artist. That might be the impulse that drove the portrait choices made for Michelle Obama’s remembrance, unveiled earlier this morning in a ceremony at the Smithsonian:(Snip for video)The audience erupted in applause, but the head-scratching began in earnest almost immediately afterward. Who is the woman in the portrait? It only bears a generic resemblance to the former First Lady, if that, HuffPost reporter Sam Stein noted: Sam

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing.

Monday morning, the Smithsonian´s National Portrait Gallery unveiled their official portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. And while both portraits are the work of avant garde contemporary artists, in this case they might be just a touch too avant garde. Barack Obama´s portrait was done by pop artist Kehinde Wiley, who is well known for his hyper-realistic portraits of African American men and women, often done in the style of the Old Masters or with backgrounds familiar to fans of classical, "old world" European art. Wiley recreated Obama´s likeness in his trademark hyper-realistic way, with Obama

CNN ran an absurd story Saturday afternoon, seemingly praising the sister of one the world’s most evil dictators for “stealing the show” at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The piece starts off, saying, “If ´diplomatic dance´ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un´s younger sister would be favored to win gold.” Hailing Kim Yo Jong as North Korea’s “answer” to Ivanka Trump, CNN claims that “with a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.”

Democratic money man Tom Steyer is constructing a panel of mental health officials and nuclear weapons experts to support his months-long campaign to impeach President Donald Trump. Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned liberal activist, plans on cobbling together a group of experts Monday night to discuss Trump’s mental health and his nuclear ambitions. It’s part of his mission to oust Trump. He used various social media platforms in October 2017 to launch a “need to impeach” Trump movement. More than four million people have signed his petition so far, but House Democrats are not enamored with the move. House Minority Leader

A significant part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s basis for investigating the Trump campaign’s Russia ties is looking more and more like a political hit job carried out by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. Her campaign’s fingerprints are on at least three separate pieces of information fed to the FBI, including the Christopher Steele dossier Republicans say formed the basis of a secret warrant obtained to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

Republicans are weighing whether to raise the federal gas tax. It´s an idea they are prone to hate, but they may need it to pay for President Trump’s infrastructure investment plan. Supporters of the idea note that the tax hasn’t been raised since 1993 and have plenty of evidence that resistance to a hike is wearing down. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently called for the Trump administration and Congress to raise the gas tax by 25 cents per gallon to help pay for an infrastructure package, projecting it would generate more than $375 billion over a decade.
