Obama’s Impeachable Offense?

President Obama rocked the election this weekend by saying, according to a report here, that ““If you have a family member who maybe is undocumented, then you have an even greater reason to vote.”

Whether this is an impeachable offense demands on which side of the political aisle you’re sitting on.

Obviously, the questioner said “dreamers” but then she attaches the liberal-buzz “citizen” because “they have made a contribution to this country…”

Obama chose to answer the “citizen” part and ignored that the question was specifically about illegals who have not taken the Oath of Citizenship.

This is typical of the “slime level” in this campaign.  Right along with the radical Obama left letting loose with F-bombs and n-word at campaign events.

Despicable and not presidential in any sense.

Still, in the despicable column, we have to call out Congress which would can’t do anything without wasting huge amounts of time.

There is no law saying impeachment has to be anything more than a 4-day event.  Congress just acts that way.

Comey the Clown

We continue, in the center ring of this electoral circus with the FBI Director’s “creative handling” of the latest email investigation.

After saying that Clinton has been cleared – again – the BS detectors went off on the R side of things as “‘You can’t review 650,000 new emails in eight days!’ Furious Trump blasts FBI Director after Houdini Hillary is CLEARED over second email investigation sparked by Anthony Weiner’s teen sexting scandal.

Could the FBI have really done a credible review in eight days?  Obviously, not.

But the real whitewashing on the Clinton charges make sense once you understand that “DoJ Assistant Attorney Peter Kadzik outed as a mole for Hillary Clinton campaign “ was charged by Wikileaks.

But, since payback is a bitch, we see now how “WikiLeaks says email publication servers under targeted DoS attack since #DNCLeak2 .”

Meantime, it doesn’t look good for CNN’s credibility as another report says “WikiLeaks: DNC and CNN colluded on questions for Trump, Cruz.”

Israel Worries, Global Jitters

A note from Warhammer to ponder:

On the day before a momentous U.S. election, this article highlights the increasingly dire situation Israel finds itself in after the U.S. abandoned the region’s only true democracy shortly after the lame duck American was elected eight years ago.

http://www.defensenews.com/articles/russian-influence-on-hezbollah-raises-red-flag-in-israel

The key takeaway is Russia is not only protecting the corrupt Assad regime and strengthening bonds between Syria and Iran in the process, the Ruskies are teaching tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) to Hezbollah, formerly a guerilla military organization and sworn mortal enemy to Israel and, coincidentally (not), a compete Iranian puppet.

Tangentially, stock futures are up this morning on the news Hillary and Huma’s email arrangement will not be further investigated.  Why?  Oh, sure, there’s the confidence that current economic policies set in place during the Obama administration will remain in place, providing some level of comfort to investors.  But then there’s the prospects of ramped up military manufacturing, taking Russia, Iran, China, Israel, Yemen  (and many, many more) hot spots into consideration.  This diplomatic uncertainty is also good for military industry and the associated aspect of our economy.

War in the Middle East looks inevitable no matter which party claims the White House tomorrow.  But my bet is that war is much more likely if HRC assumes the throne.  She will threaten Putin’s machismo, causing him to confront her to maintain a good image among the Russian serfs.  If Hillary wins, America will continue to neglect Israel while pushing towards open international borders and economic globalism.  Problem is, the Middle East may not be the only ‘doom bloom’ if Hillary wins.  China will surely test her resolve in the Pacific, strengthening its grip on the S. China Sea region, perhaps more. 

Who knows, Hillary may ultimately end up being an American Margaret Thatcher.  Problem is, she lacks a Reaganesque ally to carry her heavy torch of progressivism ‘Forward.’ 

Interesting times?  Indeed!

Uh –huh…But a Trump win would panic the insider-class and so perhaps the panic over money would limit US involvement.  Still, damn interesting horse race, for sure.

Talk to Me About Money

The market is likely to rally, at least for a while, after we get through the election and expected fall-out.  But you need to understand the high level of risk at jumping into the market on the long/bullish side on the strength of this rally that is showing in the futures…a 1.3% rally when I looked.

Wriote this down and stare at it several times today because it is a Wall Street “old saying” that became and old saying because it’s usually right.

Take this (incredibly stupid) election.

Polls are about tied, of Trump is ahead and BOTH SIDES think their candidate will win.

Ergo, the rally this morning should be a smoker.  BUT tomorrow evening, about half of America (and whoever those illegals and dead people are who vote Smile) will be disappointed.

And that means, the retest of last week’s lows could come on Thursday or Friday.  And if kit starts to get up a head of steam, then it will pick up momentum and we will head down for the 1,980 zone on the S&P, OR we will hold above, oh, 2,074 or so.  And then we get a sustainable rally.

So that’s the mechanics of “Buy the rumor, sell the news: and I think there is a chance of us seeing it work out this week. 

Still, Pappy didn’t raise no fool.  As advised our Peoplenomics.com subscribers a couple of weeks ago, this is a fine time to hold cash.

Our stodgy old trading model is designed to make – and keep – money.  You might be able to make a good bit on a short-term trade, but more downside action looks to be in the cards, especially if an unconnected candidate wins over the one that has ties to the voting-machine maker…ahem….

Former Attorney General Janet Reno.

She’ll be remembered for her hand in the Waco seige that cost 76 people their lives.

II can’t speak for you, but I’m not impressed with the quality of democratic AG appointments…

Oklahoma Quake – Bigger in the Wings?

5.0 with some damage reported in central Oklahoma.  What makes this a financial story is that Cushing is a key energy hub, in addition to the usual rural goings-on.

Yep, right there in fracking country, too.

The reason to worry about this just being a prequel is that we have a “Super Moon” coming up on the 16th.

That will bring two things:  1) the closest approach of the Moon to Earth in 70+ years and 2) the resulting extremes of tidal action, both of land and see.  Yes, see Land Tides for more.

A word, or two about the 1948 Super Moon.  There were three Super Moons in February, March, and April of ‘49.

In addition to a December 7.0 in December of 1948 in the Antofagasta Region of Chile, there was a 7.0 in Fiji in January, a February 7.0 in the Aleutians, a 7.3 in China in the same month.  Then in March a 7+  hit Indonesia and in April the Philippines and in Chile.

Which means what?

Oh, just that there really is a tendency for major quyakes to hit on “named days” such as the Boxing Day quake and tsunami and the Good Friday Alaska quake in ‘’1964.

If wet a major quake on Election Day tomorrow or on Vetyeran’s Day Friday, remember this is why we prep and who mentioned it in advance.

I Universal Children’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday all fall later this month, but with the year ending with three Super Moons, only an idiot wouldn’t double check the supplies and have a few cases of water per person laid in…

Back to the Money Pit

45-,minutes before the open, the Dow was up 250.

Fed Consumer Debt report out this afternoon, so keep an eye on that one.  And the Gallup Consumer Spending number came in at $93 for the month of October…about even.

Enjoy the bounce.

Obama’s Impeachable Offense? — 26 Comments

  1. You for got when the child of an illegal alien made the front page when the ICE team was deporting their parents away back in 1993 or so, under the Rapist administration… I’m pretty sure Reno was at the helm…

  2. Many of the outrage posts were written around a video in which the majority of the president’s response was edited out to give the misleading impression that Obama was urging undocumented immigrants to vote illegally.
    http://www.snopes.com/obama-encouraged-illegal-aliens-to-vote/

    How do you undo cries to impeach? How do you undo the belief that people formed based upon the flying monkeys’ edited video?

    • PLEASE, we heard him LOUD AND CLEAR! WE heard her loud and clear! We saw her little twisted expression with our own eyes! We HEARD her little twisted set up question, AND HER ENTITLEMENT!!! AND, we heard HIS ANSWER, if he is so smart, WHY did he not correct her??? He sure has no trouble correcting AMERICANS every single day and talking down to us! Wavecrave, I have concluded that you are willfully blind!

  3. And we take this break from our regular programming for this commercial message from Hammerhead and the MIC:

    “Increasingly dire situation Israel finds itself in, blah, blah, blah”

    Seriously? SERIOUSLY? These freaking ingrates just conned the U.S. of Schmucks into a $38 billion gift over ten years. For those of you bad at math, that’s 3.8 billion per year from the usual 3.1 billion. It’s also the largest aid package offered to ANY country. Talk about chutzpah. Is this guy working for Stratfor?

    “Corrupt Assad regime” being protected by evil Rooskies.

    Again. Seriously? Assad’s gov’t is no regime (neocon agitprop notwithstanding). He’s popular with his people. Democratically elected. That “regime” smear properly belongs to the stooges running post-putsch Ukraine. You know, that $5 billion investment “Cookies” Nuland and bragged about in 2014?

    Geeeeeez, George. Really?

    • Agree!

      Warhammer’s “Russia is not only protecting the corrupt Assad regime”

      while corrupt Hillary is protecting the ISIS regime.

      I think we begin to understand Warhammer’s allegiance a bit better now.

    • Thank you, Bravo 3; at least you KNOW what is going on and yet, even on this site, you have to wade through ignorance from other commentators, as they STRIVE to keep up, but are oceans behind. Keep TELLING THE TRUTH, as it is truly RADICAL in these trying times!

  4. George, I’ve got some thoughts on today’s blog:

    1. Thank God it’s not as common as it was but for a while, there were a slew of these cults that ended badly (or could have) Waco, Jones Town, Heaven’s Gate, Rashnishe’s (Yes I can’t spell), etc. etc. They never end well for the followers and some huge ones are still around, as they have political influence that no one wants to challenge – any AG will have problems with this – cults are pretty much gangs wrapped in religion.

    2.Impeaching Obama – give it a rest – in two months he will be out of office – and impeaching will be moot!!

    3. When I was in grade school – occasionally we would get to see a movie – and I wondered if this was the only movie they owned. It was about the discovery of oil as a marketable product by Drake (I think that was his name . . .)

    At the time I thought that something going on down south wasn’t relevant to the PNW – Very Wrong! Not only were we not taught about the economics of the matter, but ‘the Earth’ was taken for granted. Earthquakes were not thought of until the Alaskan shocker of 64 – and now it is known that one day we will have ‘a big one’ . . .

    The mid-west has ‘fouled their own nest’ with ‘fraking’ and will bear the consequences . . .

    That’s enough for right now!

  5. A you Tube theory for Comey dropping the Killery indictment is that Comey believes Trump will win the election. She cannot then be pardoned by Obama before he leaves office but would be or could be prosecuted at a later time. From my lips to God’s ears.

  6. Janet Reno, didn’t die soon enough for the church going Texas citizens at Waco. The ‘save the children, Clinton killing machine’ was in full bloom and used UNITED STATES MILITARY assets to BURN to death CHILDREN that they wanted to save……HILLARY , stood by her man,…now people want her to lead a country that not only Kills it children in the ‘womb’ but also one that slaughters them in a CHURCH…..may those that vote for her .’feel’ her warmth on your throats….as she will bring this country to ‘heel’ for the globalist…imho

    • The globalists have purchased her, as while she was selling out our country, she was selling out herself! IF she is elected, expect her leash to be short and jerked! Expect her TRANSFORMATIONAL destruction of America agenda to be unstoppable!

  7. George, things are reminding me a lot of 1941(WW2) or 1950(Korea). After 15 years of anti-insurgent operations our forces are unprepared to fight a near peer state actor. It’s like an A league team only playing against B or C league and then suddenly find themselves up against an A league team. Success is not assured. Our promotion boards seem to concentrate on promoting officers like themselves, managers(many of whom who couldn’t manage their way out of a paper bag with a sharp knife) and bureaucrats. Since the system is up or out, many of the smart, original and innovative officers are forced out. Years of continuing resolutions have forced the services to fund things they don’t want or need, but not fund things that are needed.
    There are shortages of parts and equipment is being cannibalized to keep some of it going. The navy has less than half of its aircraft operational, and the other services are similar. Training is restricted due to budget reasons. Given enough time these things can be corrected. But unlike WW2 and Korea I think the next war won’t last long enough for us to get our act together. I am a DOD civilian and these past few years I have seen the decline in our military leadership. I am not optimistic about the next conflict.

  8. Excellent column. Nostracodeus has been warning of a middleast war for quite a while. It scanned 1001 of Hillary’s emails and there is a lot of middle east war chatter in them as well. Stock up folks.

  9. Hey George, are you sure you got the year right in the second sentence of first paragraph about the ’48 supermoon?

  10. Corruption as slimy as a slug with salt on it and in high places as tho no judgement for actions stupid indeed

  11. Obama himself is undocumented,as none of his documents have passed the smell test by any objective standard.

    • If you support Trump you support more forced removals of kids from their parents, right?

      • If their parents broke in and are illegal, no. Toss the parents out with ’em.

    • George – if only it was that simple. Section 1 of the 14th Amendment provides, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” It’s a pickle!

      The problem is kids born in the US to illegals are US citizens. We can’t very well throw US citizens (the kids)out. It’s quite a complex problem that can’t be fixed by soundbites to build a wall. This is roll up the sleeves hard work with lots of competing national, business and international interests.
