The Coming Market Dump Starts This Week

Here we go. My pal in Washington, “Reeko” is predicting a stock market crash in the very near future. He’s going out on a limb in making this prediction — it could be proven wrong within a week or two.  But he could also be proven to be correct. Read and prepare as you will:

If you haven’t prepared financially, you may only have a few days left to do so. Next week after the Monday night destruction of the Hillary campaign – and I still have serious doubts that she will even make it to the show – the future narrative is already being written and waiting for marching orders: that the coming stock market “correction” will be crashing because of Trump’s headlock on the November election. That isn’t true, but it will be what is messaged and massaged into the civil discourse. It will be repeated often enough to become true even when it isn’t.

Most financial advisors are insisting that the current high Dow is due largely to the near-free money from the Fed’s incredibly low rate. The Fed shilling for the Obama administration has been hinting at an unavoidable interest rate hike soon. After any rate hike, the market will follow – downward – and most investors already know that. Trump himself has said so, repeatedly, and even advised folks to have little money in the stock market. Those words WILL come back to bite him though because of the fact that most new presidents’ first year in office usually results in a lower Dow. Steve Forbes just said the same thing on Neil Cavuto – which I am watching as I type this.

What is different now is that there are certain movers in the stock market that can influence its rise and fall. That isn’t a new revelation and it certainly isn’t a conspiracy theory but in fact that is exactly how investment companies make money – they predict the rise and fall of stocks and sectors of stock by watching certain large movers. I don’t mean insider trading or anything else specifically illegal although, in the context of this political season we shouldn’t rule illegalities out. (!) And while manipulation of a stock exchange is still an illegal enterprise, that certainly doesn’t stop it, neither here nor overseas in foreign markets. For example, if a large investor suddenly started selling off or buying up any certain stock or sector of stock, a rather large number of investors will follow, sometimes stampeding the market into a freefall or a zoom climb. That is just normal business as usual, but it can be – and sometimes is – done to influence elections. Imagine the leading headline on a legacy news channel only after it becomes apparent in the polls that Hillary can not overcome the polling deficit:

“DOW Tanks As Investors Fear Trump” will be read gleefully by a bubble-headed bleach blonde, as Don Henley of the Eagles said, “with a gleam in her eye.” Of course, in our current Age Of Apps, it will most likely be the scroll across the bottom.

Ergo, my prediction: the DOW will lose 35 percent and stabilize near 12500, the majority of that drop in the remaining months of 2016. Are you ready for it?

Building The Blame Game Or How To Create An Excuse


The following is another missive from my friend in Washington, Reeko:

There are copy editors already prepping headlines for November which will read something like this:
Etc. ad nauseam…

Why? Because the coming landslide of Trump will be of such epic size that no self-respecting Democrat would ever think that they were that many more legal and valid voters out-voting their built-in fraud and bias that have consistently elected progressive after progressive for decades.

But, for those and similar headlines, urging the massive public sentiment and anger they are designed to foment to work, some sleight-of-hand, voo-doo-govern-media groundwork has to be done first. And it is.

Since Trump is running up numbers in demographics like no other Republican has in over 40 years, those with the most to lose from a Trump presidency are scared to death. And that is only IF (big “if) Hillary even makes it through the debates and all the way to election day. I personally still don’t think she will make it. There are already DNC party apparatchiks scheming on a viable Plan B.

In the meantime, the progressive “machine” is prepping the electoral altercation that is about to be inflicted, ie: a Trump election day blowout of epic proportions.

Since the political wing of the FBI is fully cooperating, with too many instances to cite, suspicions are starting to appear even among career FBI folks, and – you can take this as it comes from sources – that these suspicions are likely valid in almost all of them. Coercion and subversion of our laws by those who were supposed to be enforcing them will not sit quite right for long. Yet, now comes this….

In order to substantiate the charge that the coming election was “stolen” from Hillary and the American electorate, progressives and their enablers must lay the groundwork for a very real challenge to the few on-line voter rolls and verification systems. This is not conspiracy theory, this is actually happening. Now. Right now. And it looks something like this:

1. First, the political arm of the FBI accidentally leaks a seemingly alarming “flash” report of “possible” foreign hackers in a couple of state’s voter registration systems. They leak this “flash” directly to one of the largest online govern-media leftist news groups that there is: Yahoo News.

2. The true believers at Yahoo News do their best work by reporting on the FBI accidental leak, except that somehow, Yahoo News infers throughout their report that those evil Russians are behind such a hacking breach.

3. Right on cue, Harry Reid and other leading Democrats start calling for FBI investigations, with their Democrat accomplices at the New York Times bellowing this ACTUAL HEADLINE:

“Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote, and Seeks F.B.I. Inquiry”

4. Well obviously to those who never question the govern-media, Trump’s campaign staffers who had any connection to any Russian businesses at all – ever – are now all guilty as sin of “rigging” (using Trump’s word for it!) our voting system. Rigged elections! In America! Not that there was any of that in any Dem primary or anything… Superdelegate? What’s that?

5. And there it is… As of this writing, the evil deeds and evil seeds have been done and sown. As Rush Limbaugh has said for over 20 years, it ain’t the facts that matter… it is only the allegations that matter. Facts be damned – like “Russian” hackers (instead of North Koreans this time!) the facts will not matter to the masses. Only the headlines and the agit-prop aimed at the Molotov cocktail throwers, the damage will be intentional.

Meanwhile, there will be no stopping the coming Trump-Pence landslide. Unfortunately that means Dems are going to spin lies like a ceiling fan about the results. That will include an army of lawyers who are already typing up legal challenges alluding to Russian hacking of voter rolls.  What can anybody do? The masses don’t understand that even if voter rolls were hacked – by anybody – voter rolls do not equal votes!

As always, the contents of this post do not necessarily reflect the thinking of your humble blogress. My own thinking, actually,  is that Trump is poised to lose big in November, unless something major comes out to derail Hillary’s campaign. Julian Assange has said that Wikileaks has more docs on Hillary that the public will find interesting — but not necessarily interesting enough to torpedo her election chances. Frankly, I’m not hopeful. Emailgate should have done her in, but the wildcard (FBI Director Comey) showed us which team he’s playing for back in July. All hope evaporated when the so-called “straight arrow Republican” declined to recommend indictment for Hillary when they had her dead to rights. The fix is in, folks. Republicans — even Trumpians — don’t do well when fixes are in.

Let us know what you think in the comments.

Clock Boy’s Family Sues Irving City and School for $15 Million


It’s official.

The family of Ahmed Mohamed (aka “Clock-Boy”) the high school freshman who made international headlines after being arrested for bringing a suspicious looking “homemade clock” to school, filed a federal lawsuit Monday against the Irving Independent School District and the City of Irving.

Irving ISD officials confirmed the lawsuit to WFAA News 8:

“Legal counsel for Irving ISD has confirmed that the school district was named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed today in Dallas federal court by attorneys for a former Irving ISD student. As with any legal matter of this nature, attorneys for the school district will review the filing and respond as appropriate. Irving ISD continues to deny violating the student’s rights and will respond to claims in accordance with court rules. Because this matter is now in litigation, Irving ISD officials will have no further comment at this time. Irving ISD employees are focused on welcoming 35,000 students for the 2016-2017 academic year and doing everything possible to ensure each student is achieving his or her maximum potential.”

The lawsuit claims the Ahmed”s civil rights were violated after school officials mistook his clock for a bomb and that his  “wrongful interrogation” was due to his race.

The family is seeking $15 million in damages and an apology from district officials.

The city of Irving said it welcomed the opportunity to let all the facts to be revealed in a statement Monday.

“The city of Irving is prepared to vigorously defend itself and the justifiable actions it took in this matter. The legal process will allow all facts to be revealed, and the city welcomes that opportunity. The city of Irving’s top priority is to ensure the safety and security of its children and the entire community. The city will continue to take its duty and responsibility to serve and protect the public seriously.”

There are reasons the city of Irving is looking forward to being able to tell their side of the story in court.

For one thing, it’s not true that school officials “mistook his clock for a bomb.”  They mistook it for a “hoax bomb.” There’s a difference.  The contraption — which took a minimal amount of effort and about half a minute to assemble– appeared to school officials and police to have been specifically designed to look like a briefcase bomb and cause alarm.

An electronics enthusiast on YouTube last year demonstrated how much effort went into Mohamed’s “invention.”

Last September during an interview with Glenn Beck, Irving Texas Mayor Beth Van Duyne revealed that the family of Ahmed Mohammed not only repeatedly refused to meet with city officials but refused to sign a school release form that would have explained the school and police’s side of the story.

Instead, the family held a press conference in their front yard flanked by CAIR lawyers, basking in the media attention. The president complimented the fourteen year old “wiz kid” on Twitter and invited him to the White House. The young hoaxter was feted by celebrities, given lavish gifts by big corporations,  and went on a world tour in October that included a chummy visit with the evil, genocidal, war criminal President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan. Clock-Boy was able to meet with Obama later that month at the White House Astronomy Night. While he was in Washington DC, Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, called for a new amendment to the US Constitution, presumably to end the kind of cruel ethic profiling his son had suffered.

Here, Clock-Boy recounts to the sympathetic media all the damages he’s suffered due to the school’s actions.

Last October Mayor Van Duyne said she was “shocked” when she saw the president’s tweet to Ahmed Mohammed, complimenting him on his “cool clock.”

She said “it seems to be an underlying habit that he is going to second guess police officers without any kind of information.”

She later noted that the president had tweeted about the case and invited Ahmed to the White House before the pictures of the clock were even publicly available. Obama made no attempt to contact her office before making public comments in support of the Muslim teen.

The mayor also said: “I now have our police chief who is a wonderful, wonderful man, a family man, a churchgoing man, and I now have our police officers as well as a number of teachers, school administrators, receiving death threats as a direct result of this. It is unfortunate, and it has got to stop.”

“As a juvenile, they can not release those records. The school district, a number of times, has asked the family, to release the records, so that you can have the balanced story out there. The family is ignoring the request from the ISD.”

Van Duyne told Beck that if the records were available it would “help to describe why it progressed as it did.”

Well, the records should now be available in court– and they’re going to tell an interesting backstory about this family. Sometimes “discovery” can be a bitch.

Trump’s VP Pick — A Prediction

Ted Cruz

Via Reeko, who is pretty sure he knows who it’s going to be:

Mike Pence brings nothing to the Trump ticket. Virtually nobody outside of Indiana knows who he is. From all accounts he is a wonderful Governor and might’ve made in other circumstances, a wonderful dream ticket. but not 2016. Donald Trump already won the Indiana primary, so in business terms, Mike Pence doesn’t bring anything to the Art Of The Deal.

The rest of the field of VP candidates, that are being so-called “vetted” are not in my opinion, actually being vetted for VP. Maybe cabinet positions, but not VP. Trump knows what he has to do, and just like when he released his short-list of SCOTUS nominees, with some heavy-hitters on it, he received immediate cheers from conservatives and TEA Party types all over. Bravo! But remember how Trump did that. He is doing the same thing for building his future cabinet. AND most importantly, he already has told us who he wants…

Now as to Cruz’s hurt feelings and hesitance. that is natural, and again, IMO, Trump is trying to show Cruz that he is a very serious and conservative-oriented about his choices. (the term “conservative” may need to be refined in this new age of Trump – but that can be discussed later at more length)  here is the kicker though, and this is very, very important: Texas is in play this November. most people I tell that to are stunned and even ridicule me for it, but here are the facts…

Texas is currently listed even by RCP as only slightly pink, leaning Trump. but what the RCP averages don’t take into consideration is the real politics of the Texas electorate. although a slightly healthy divide between Dems and Republicans, those GOPers are divided into roughly three evenly distributed groups: 1 – pro-Cruz; 2 – middle road pro-Trump; and 3 – the Never-Trumpers. that last group is – again IMO – by far one of the most influential in the entire country. And they are extremely diehard anti-Trumpists. They will either not vote, vote Hillary, vote Gary Johnson, or even write in Obama (again!) and no, I’m not joking. without Cruz or even Perry as his VP, Trump can forget about taking Texas in November. yes, it is that serious.

And most importantly, Cruz knows it. right now, he is in what we call the Catbird’s Seat. In fact, he knows he marshals a very large contingent of not only supporters, but delegates for the convention. Cruz also knows that the GOPe Never-Trumpers will never, never, never allow him to finagle, schmooze, cajole, or outright steal the nomination away from Trump. and that is even if Cruz were so disposed to do so. I don’t think he is. I think he is an upright, honest, and forthright kind of guy. But his supporters and delegates are another story altogether….

And before anybody gets their knickers in a wad, yes, I did vote for Cruz in the primary. why? Because I called the primary results well over a year ago: Trump with a massive delegate count followed by ONLY one second place finishing strong – Ted Cruz. I voted for Cruz with that intent, to put him in a strong second place finish. Turns out that I was absolutely exact on that result.

The only guessing I can’t figure right now is, when is Trump going to announce? Actually, I think it already has been worked out between either Cruz or Perry and the Trump people. but the timing is everything, and I can’t figure out if it will be this week before the convention or immediately before or even during? Usually, I can also call the time of the VP announcement, but i can’t see it this time. It basically is up to Cruz to give the go ahead nod. And Cruz may be holding out hopes that there is some kind of delegate revolt or upset like the court case in Virginia that seems to be going ahead in favor of the Cruz delegate. It may be that Cruz is trying to eyeball what he thinks his delegates can scam or pull off. And yes, present company excepted of course *(would never accuse you of anything devious at all!) but Cruz operatives are some of the most extreme I’ve ever encountered. They literally will try anything to win. Of course, they think they are doing it for “the country” but i seriously doubt that.

A Trump-Cruz 2016 ticket would be a guaranteed blow-out in November of at least 45 states. (although i still say about 47)  and u know what else?

The Democrats know it.

The media know it.

Trump knows it.

Cruz knows it.

Even the Bernouts know it, and yes a good percentage of them will vote for a Trump-Cruz ticket.

The only people who are living in complete denial and an alternate reality are the Never-Trumpers. so they leave the GOP like George Will? good riddance. buh bye!

This election will be about the Mike Rowe’s of the country – not about the Mitt Romneys.

This election will be between the Robertsons of Duck Dynasty and Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians.

The choices this election will determine if we as a country go with VHS or Betamax – and we already know how that turned out.

I will leave you with a morsel for those Cruzers who are whining that they will go all Libertarian-retard and vote Gary Johnson. Here is a paraphrased quote from one of the Libertarian demi-gods, Ludwig Von Mises who said:

“If you offer a man a cup of milk or a cup of cyanide, you are not offering him a choice of beverages. You are offering him a choice between life and death.”  KA – BOOM!


*No Cruz operatives here, (not that he isn’t vastly more qualified than the presumptive nominee.) It’s just hard to fathom how Trump could possibly justify to the electorate a choice for VP, a guy he spent six months slurring as “Lyin’ Ted.” Not to mention the absurd conspiracy theory about his dad being involved with the Kennedy assassination. I don’t know how Trump pulls that off. I don’t know how Cruz swallows his pride and goes along with it. 

That said, following a meeting with Trump, Cruz did tell reporters he has agreed to speak at the RNC in a show of “unity.”

Meanwhile….Never Trump Movement Gears Up For Final Play To Stop Trump At Convention:

CLEVELAND, Ohio—Republican National Committee delegates determined to stop Donald Trump at the GOP Convention next week are in the final planning stages of their mission.

Several groups are fine-tuning various convention floor strategies that would allow delegates to vote their conscience on the first round of balloting, rather than being required to vote for the candidate who won their state contest.

Composed of various alliances who talk to one another on conference calls, email lists and text messages virtually every day, groups like Save Our Party, Delegates Unbound and Free the Delegates find themselves in the final home stretch this week as key RNC delegate committee meetings (platform, rules, credentials) convene before the GOP picks its nominee at the convention.

I’m not saying I’m for it or agin it. Trump did win fair and square and has a large and enthusiastic following. On the other hand — he’s a terrible candidate and a nincompoop who is not getting better at campaigning as time goes on. 

I honestly don’t think he’s going to pick up many Bernie supporters. The good news is, millennials are appalled by Hillary. The bad news is, (most) millennials are even more appalled by Trump.  

A solid conservative Republican candidate would be roundly beating damaged-goods Hillary in the polls right now — not trailing like Trump is. 

I predicted a year ago that Hillary wouldn’t make it to the finish line. EmailGate was THAT serious and the MSM wasn’t in the mood to give her a pass. By all rights she should be toast, right now. Her corruption has been exposed for all to see, and yet she hobbles on. The only reason she still viable is because the GOP’s candidate is profoundly awful, too.

What a fine mess we’re in.


Islamic Jihad vs. the Establishment Clause


Via Reeko, my friend in DC:

Orlando: it is not a Second Amendment problem. It is a First Amendment problem. Specifically, the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment has correctly prohibited our government from deciding which religion is acceptable and which is not. Until now.

Unfortunately, our constitutional guardians have failed us. The politicians sworn to support, preserve, or protect our constitution have now allowed the following to be our current state of affairs: that Islamic Jihad is not recognized as either a tenet or doctrine of Islam. All of a sudden, our politicians are now certified theological experts in the matter. Either that or somebody made Islam our officially sanctioned religion, a religion which nobody is allowed to debate. Officially, the terms “Islamic Jihad” are not allowed to appear in any official document.

My question is, just when was the establishment clause overturned to allow this? Did I miss it?

A government that declares any tenet, belief, or practice of a religion to be the “true” version of that religion, is therefore choosing a side in that religion and that is undeniably prohibited by our constitution. Even if a government denounces any other tenet, belief, or practice of that same religion and declares those adherents to be practicing the “high-jacked” or corrupted version of that religion, then such a government has indeed inserted itself and sanctioned an established official religion.

Consider that our government is supposed to be prohibited from declaring that all Baptists are true Christians because they baptize by immersion in water, while all Presbyterians are untrue Christians because they do not. Or that all Protestants are true Christians and all Catholics are unholy idolaters. Wars have been fought and many people have died throughout history over such ecumenical differences. The beauty of our enlightened Constitution is that it forbids the official taking of sides in these internecine battles. The prohibition against establishing an official religion – or even an official doctrine within a religion – has always been cemented firmly between unduly preferring any tenet or belief of say, Catholic over Protestant, Atheist over Nativist, Jew over Gentile, or whatever. Until now apparently.

For example: when Obama and his enablers and apologists in both political parties state that the Islamic State (ISIS) isn’t Islam, or that Al Qaeda or any other Jihadic terrorist groups are those who have “perverted Islam” then that official statement would be a distinct and undeniable theological assessment. It also means that Islamic Jihad as a tenet of Islam would no longer be recognized as Islamic. All of the Imams in Islam can go to hell. Obama will by golly tell them what is or is not their true religion.

Think about the implications.

Are we, as a country, going to allow our government to promote and approve a tenet of any religion as the only officially sanctioned version of that religion? The Establishment Clause of the Constitution says no. When was that changed?
