    So… the DOW is apparently down 1300 points today. Hearing it on Hannity and sure enough, stock market is tanking today. Can anyone tell me why? What’s going on to cause this sudden correction? Did a market bubble just pop? Interest rate hike? Terrorist attack?

        Panic. Hah! So a two months of gains gone in a day… but it will be back in a week. Not really a panic if there is nothing to panic about. The economy is booming right now and nothing has changed that. And that is my question… why is the market correcting? The last day Yellen plus interest rate hikes argument makes the most sense.

      Can anyone tell me why?

      Yes.

      The market was very over-bought and extended. We haven’t had any kind of “back and fill” (ie. normal progressive bull market price action) in MONTHS. At the peak, the DOW was 4,000 points above the 200-day moving average! This was highly unusual and unhealthy.

      Right now this price action may be viewed as healthy and normal profit-taking after a very extended run to the upside. Nothing to be too alarmed about.

      Luke: whoever tells you the “reason” why the markets dropped so much today and in previous days is LYING to you. It takes humongous global sale waves to keep it up and the only hint I can offer -not an explanation- is that massive globalist money forces are trying to take the wind out from under PDJT’s sails. PDJT’s wind comes from the support he receives from the American workers.

        I suppose that could be the reason on a grand-conspiracy style scale… but doesn’t even that take a triggering event?

        Agreed. The obscenely wealthy and the political elite all engage in inside trading, being privy to data no-one else is, but who have access by deliberate design that they may manipulate the markets to suit their agenda. Surprises like this always involve them – manipulated by massive sell-offs orchestrated by them and The Fed. Ultimately, their goal is to completely crash the USD some way down the track. This includes driving the majority onto the Blockchain platform – into crypto-currencies.

        The cabal intends to introduce its one-world currency through the Blockchain technology, except it won’t be encrypted, merely digital. No notes, no coins, no banks, purely digital, but instead of being owned privately their Blockchain digital one-world currency will be controlled by their puppet governments, who will be instrumental in outlawing private crypto-currencies, to be replaced with a single State-owned digital currency on Blockchain. This is why Blockchain technology was invented, to usher in the one-world global currency.

        How will they erase the current privately-owned crypto-currencies? Create an “event”, which creates chaos within them. Could be to have Artificial Intelligence break the encryption or simply manipulate the price and destroy their value – whatever, but the “event” will provide justification for governments to “outlaw” private currencies, just as China has now done this week. That opens the door to replace them with a State-owned and controlled single Blockchain currency – a one-world, single global currency. That is where this is going and it involves the stock market plays as well.

      the stock down today is all mechanical builtin with the various triggers and trading strategies for funds. A few days ago I posted a very long and thorough analysis of the whole situation.

      bond yields up -> debt costs too high
      -> funds getting killed in highly leverage bond and yield trades
      -> selling in stocks -> Support and stock selling triggers hit – various trading strategies had automatic programmed in strategies and selling triggers
      -> many sell triggers hit at the same time -> support levels almost non-existent because market has not had a real correction for a year.

      We are in a rising rates -> huge amount of debt -> Fed pulling money out of markets starting in January.

      ==> We have never been in a monetary tightening (rising rates and pulling money out) with this much massive Debt/GDP ratio. Pain is just getting starting. This is the legacy Obama gave to Trump.

      There is no conspiracy to take the market down. Each person or entity is looking at their own trades and style of trading and trade risks and taking profits and self-preservation decisions independently.

      WFC was down 8% at the open today because FED sanctioned them on Friday for bad banking practices and that took the whole banking sector down at the open

      Tomorrow and beyond. Much damage has been done in the last few days, Gut fear in people has come back. Now the market can react more normally – meaning more volatility and ups and downs. But this damage and fear created will take some time to work off as things settle some more.

          Hollywood, you need to crawl out from under your rock. On the campaign trail during the Presidential election cycle, Donald Trump predicted precisely this. He forewarned that the The Fed would ultimately attempt to destroy the U.S.economy under his watch as President, should he win the election, by raising interest rates too often, too close together by increments which the economy could not withstand. That is EXACTLY the monetary Policy that The Fed has now engaged.

          The face of global world wars has changed dramatically. It is no longer fought with guns and bombs but with currency and market manipulations, orchestrated by the globalist cabal of international wanker banker gangsters and crony capitalists who want their WWIII. Wars fill the coffers of the globalist-owned Military Industrial Complex. A WWIII is intended to trigger the necessary crisis to usher in their global one-world system in EVERYTHING, from a single global currency, to a single global government to a single one-world religion, to a single one-world economy and trading bloc.

          Trump’s Presidency is in a race against time to take them down, before they take the world down.

      Well if it is just today then it is probably all of those shorting this over inflated market cashing in their chips after Fridays sell off. If it continues adn people panic it could be the long over due correction or even the next crash. Fridays drop was because the Fed is raising interest rates and seems determined to go on raising them. When debt becomes more expensive everyone is affected. The fed blows up bubbles with cheap money and then bursts them with higher interest rates. It’s what they always do.

        Exactly, Lawrencepaul1. It is one reason the Central Reserve Banking globalist system was invented – to create and control the global financial system to enrich themselves and to compel the masses into debt enslavement to them. It is why every Western Democracy is running a deficit, paying interest on money created out of thin air, which is ultimately paid by we the people, the taxpayers.

        They are moving towards a completely digital one-world single global currency. No coins, no notes, no credit cards, no banks all linked to the 5G Internet of Things and accessed by the RFID chip implant. If you don’t have the implant you will not be able to buy, sell, exchange or trade in ANYTHING.

        Chins has just outlawed all crypto-currencies. Western puppet governments, puppets to the globalist wanker banker gangsters will down the track follow suit and replace them with a State-owned Blockchain digital currency. That’s how the globalist one-world single digital currency.will be introduced – on Blockchain. It is why CERN invented Blockchain.

    The Cost of Illegal Immigration
    by Ruthie Blum
    February 5, 2018 at 5:30 am

    ◆ “At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens.” — Matt O’Brien and Spencer Raley.

    ◆ It is also rather more than the single payment of $25 billion that it will cost to build a wall — five and a half times more, and every year.”

    ◆ Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes…” — John R. Lott.

    ◆ In 2015, included in the DEA’s drug-threat assessment was the fact that drug overdoses killed more people in the United States than car accidents or guns. Many of these drugs [were] smuggled in large volumes by drug cartels.”

  4. Anyone hear listen to Joe Walsh’s radio show on AM560 in Chicago (think he’s also syndicated or at least web streamed.) He literally had me screaming curse words at the radio on my way home from Friday night. I listen because I have no other options for conservative radio. He slams Trump a lot, so I’ve gotten used to his good Trump/bad Trump meme-whatever. But he went OVER THE TOP on Friday trashing the memo like there is no tomorrow. He’s saying Trump is attacking the FBI and this will backfire, etc… He also called Don Jr. a “dumb a$$” and a “traitor” on Twitter too. I just want to scream!!!

    What kills me is that Walsh got elected as a Tea Party Conservative-those who were so upset because Republicans weren’t standing up to Obama and weren’t doing what we elected them to do. (He then lost reelection to Tammy Duckworth.)

    So here we finally have some Republicans with the guts to stand up to the dirty Democrats who stick together like glue, have the media in the bag for them and the deep state working in the dark and this jerk has the nerve to call them out??? I want to call in on the way home today-I’ve gotten through and spoken to him before-stood up for Trump (he sent me a t-shirt-big whip!) Any suggestions on what I could say in my 30 seconds before I get interrupted by him?

Take into consideration as well that there has been absolutely NO evidence of collusion with the Russians whatsoever! Take also into consideration that McCabe said that if there hadn’t been a dossier there would have been no need for an investigation. Since the dossier is false/fabricated…no need for an investigation.

    Any type of amnesty for DACA not only endangers America with more Illegals but sends the wrong message. If the DACAers are given Amnesty they are being told to come to America for lots monetary support & you don’t even have to obey their laws.

Are we telling them that criminals come before law abiding Americans?. If any type of DACA deal is approved that lets the 1.8 million PLUS stay then we aren’t really a country any more.

      But here’s the thing…we don’t know if the DACA perps can even be deported.

      Have you checked into what a mess our ‘deportation process’ is today?
      I have.
      Every illegal gets an Immigration Lawyer and appears before an Immigration Judge [IJ], who then hears their ‘plea’ to stay here.

      Even when an IJ issues an ‘Order of Removal’…the illegal can appeal it.
      And yeah, it’s called a removal order instead of a deportation.

      The other day I heard Sean Duffy’s wife, who is hispanic, say that the DACA people have a “good argument” against being deported…
      Because they were “allowed to stay here so long, they developed lives here”!

      I thought to myself ‘Ahah!’…this is how they will do it.

      All it will take is One Case to be won in Immigration Court.
      One Case…where the IJ grants a DACA perp the right to stay here, because they were “allowed to stay here so long, they developed lives here”!

      It makes me sick.

      But this is not Pres Trump’s fault.
      He is simply trying to get the other stuff done and using the DACA thing as a bargaining chip.

        So are we to just give up and give America to people who have NO respect for our county or laws.
        The DACA chip will not only hurt America & Americans but Trump. Yes, Trump is much much better than Hillary. However, Illegals was one of Trump’s main campaign promises. and I can probably guarantee that over 20% the people who voted for him voted due finally getting rid of Illegals sponging of American taxpayers. The people who lost family members to Illegals are livid, along with all the others who believed that Trump would start working on the Illegals.
        By enforcing American laws, the problem of illegals would be almost nill. Illegals have no right to work in the US & I do believe that pertains to governmental benefits too. Start penalizing employers & stop the governmental benefits. How will they be able to stay with no money. H3LL the majority of illegals are felons with multiple deportations, identity thief and other felony crimes.
        Along with the above there is no law that says the government pays for their legal fees.
        Sorry but there comes a time when either America stands up or just give the country to the world like Obama and his people have been trying to do. Actually, most DACAers have NO loyalty to America or Americans, which is seen in their many demonstrations. Look around, there is already a huge group with thousands of illegals, including Anchors & DACAers getting ready to try & take back American lands that they believe belong to Mexico. (

          And I’m not saying we should give up or give in…hellz no.

          All I’m saying is that our deportation process has become a part of the problem.
          Most people don’t know this.

          And also, people who say that “employers should be punished” obviously don’t know that employers are punished if they Ask About Citizenship Status.

          So how can we punish employers for hiring illegals, if they aren’t even allowed to ask an applicant if they are a citizen?

            Since when ??? The last time I was hired for a job I had to show my SS card & DL to get the job. That was about 6 years ago and a photocopy is in my employee record…
            From what I know all new employees are asked for the same ID. If the Illegal give fake ID then they have committed a felony
            E-Verify was supposed to be part of Reagan’s mess…hmmm
            Actually its a felony for an Employer/Company to hire someone without the right papers.

            “A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he: assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment, encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
            Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.” https://fairus.org/issue/illegal-immigration/law-against-hiring-or-harboring-illegal-aliens

            We need to enforce the laws, including penalizing the employers. If the employer does not have a proof that their employees are legal then they should face the penalties. If the illegal gave them reasonable looking papers that turn out to be fake than I could see them getting off if it was not a pattern.

        I thought I read somewhere that President Trump plans to use the Supreme Court (once the right people are in place) to do away with the entire DACA thing. With his current plan, the path to citizenship takes 10 years and there are high stipulations attached. Perhaps that he feels that there will be a Supreme Court whose majority loves the United States of America the way that our president does within the next 10 years to end this thing once and for all!

    The market. Been there done that since the 80’s.. This is what wall street does. They sucker everyone in and then they take their money. It’s done using futures trading. Huge leverage against people that don’t.

    They (wall street) are scared schiffless because Trump is all about main street, not wall street – Key point. Another key point, The DOW index traditionally (many, many years) returns about 5.5-6%. If you have all the time in the world (young) keep it in there. Do not sell.

    Relax, this happens all the time. FWIW, I rather pay a bit higher interest rates and get 4-7% return GUARANTEED on an investment. Many of those around. Higher interest rates only hurt people that borrow, borrow, borrow, beyond their means.

    My advice, lock you mortgage rates now. No more of that variable rate BS. Do it now.

          Here’s the write up on our local news tonight:
          WSIL — Republican Representative Jeannie Ives, who’s challenging Governor Bruce Rauner in the March primary, released a new ad that’s causing quite a stir. Some have called the ad racist, sexist and transphobic and have called for its removal.

          “The message is not very subtle. The message is more like a sledgehammer,” said John Jackson, political expert with the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute.

          Jackson says ads like Reresentative Ives’ represent a very recent trend in American politics. He says it wasn’t long ago, there were certain norms followed when it came to making digs at an opponent. But following the 2016 presidential election, those norms seem to have been tossed aside.

          “There is now nothing people won’t hit their opponent with. There’s no name they won’t call them,” said Jackson.

          Gabriele Spintzyk believes the ad will only cause more division, which is why she wants to see it pulled.

          “They are using images that are going to inflame people rather than inform people,” said Spintzyk.

          She isn’t the only one calling for its removal. Leaders from both the Republican and Democratic parties say the ad goes too far. But Ives is defending it, saying the ad shows voters which constituencies Governor Rauner decided to side with.

          ‘By her not taking it down, I think it speaks a lot about the candidate that she might be,” said Spintzyk.

          Spintzyk and Jackson believe the ad is far enough out there, it won’t bring in enough votes to win the Republican nomination.

      Here are the main points to know about the historic Falcon Heavy liftoff:

      It is essentially three rockets bolted together to make the heavy vehicle.
      It is a test flight.
      The middle booster will carry Elon Musk’s own Red Tesla Roadster.
      The Roadster is planned be near Mars’ orbit in a precession Earth Mars elliptical orbit around the sun.
      The mission will try to prove that it is possible to put payloads into an orbit intersecting Mars. This would help in the mission planned to put humans in Mars.
      Musk presented this project in 2011 and he planned to roll out the heavy rocket in Southern California in late 2012. He hoped for a launch at some point in 2013 – it was obviously delayed.
      The rockets were put in position in pad 39A and tested in December 2017.
      Falcon Heavy rockets cost a fraction of the price of the future Space Launch System rockets, which are planned to have more lift and throw a space craft further into space, to Jupiter and beyond. They will probably not be ready until the mid-2020s.
      Each rocket has nine engines, making it 27 engines in total that need to ignite in tandem.
      The two side rockets will jettison from the center rocket two and a half minutes after liftoff.
      The center booster will continue for a bit longer before engines are shut off.
      All three rockets are planned to land back on Earth; two back at the Cape and the heavier rocket at the Atlantic (barge) platform called “Of course, I still love you.”
      There is a good chance that this launch may fail (but we certainly hope not!).
      Falcon Heavy weighs more than 3.1 million pounds (loaded with keronsene and liquid oxygen) and it’s about 229 feet tall.
      If successful, there will be more heavy launches during the first half of 2018 from Cape Canaveral, too.
      Central Florida residents, especially those near the coast – but as far away as metro Orlando — may hear a sonic boom.

        Ingraham did a terrible job of interviewing him and he was not particularly effective at answering.

        Truth, but understated. She was f’n horrible. Near as I could tell she had four potentially important questions buried in her incessant yapping interview style ( these are paraphrased, culled down to a sentence each from her multi-paragraph meanderings ) …

        Just what did you do on the Trump campaign?
        Were you ever a Russian spy or not?
        Exactly when did you find out that FBI was spying on you?
        Are you really suing the FedGov or not?

        Not one clear answer, mostly because Laura Ingraham literally interrupted ( redacted ) the few moments Carter Page actually was trying to say something. ~sigh~ Note to her producers: do not use split screens with grinning Laura cueing up her next interruption while the person is trying to answer. It shows the viewer exactly why Fox News sucks since the interviewing host really isn’t interested in the answer in realtime, the host is actually prepping to jump in with the next blurb and the end result is short attention span theater.

        The irony is that during her Ingraham Angle monologue she does the exact opposite by using her radio style of long pregnant gaps and pauses which comes off as patronizing to an audience of children. Also ironically, Hannity actually ( mostly ) behaved himself interviewing Nunes in the previous hour. But seriously, they are all really REALLY horrible at their job of communication. I remember being taught to count to one ( one Mississippi ) after the person you are debating with completes their sentence, only then you talk. Like I said, it is nothing but short attention span theater, but the topic is extremely serious and demands more discipline than Hannity/Ingraham are capable of.

        P.S. Did anyone notice a week or two ago that Hannity, in his outro segment of critical callers planted several legitimate ones from viewers calling him out for this very thing of over-talking? Sneaky and illustrative. It shows that he has contempt for and dismisses any suggestion he shut his yapping interruptions! He’s utterly clueless about effective communication, unconcerned about his listeners’ sanity, and is therefore hopeless.
