With the Schiff-Show wrapped up – and the democrats doing a HUGE favor to the nation in two ways. The coming week will let America move on to “the other turkeys.” And speaking of the bird, let’s raise one toward Washington (and both parties) as Congress will go home and get off TV for a while. Most of us can get on with the serious business of “stuffing” ourselves without the professional “wish boning” of the country..
The good things about the hearings – and notice how these are quickly being “disappeared” from the MSM news cycle – are they have shown us the following:
- Yes, there IS a Deep State.
- Much of it IS inside the State Dept. where despite Pompeo offers, and direct order from Trump, there’s a boatload of “holier than thou’s” that just can’t seem to follow orders.” Blue blood pricks (and prickettes) who don’t follow the law.
- That is, it’s the President who conducts foreign policy, and any way he wants. Not these arrogant, self-important, bubble-headed know-it-alls who have made a career out of war-mongering and useless process. They hate Trump because unlike past administrations, he’s happy to color outside “their decreed channels.” Yep, got it.
- As a bonous, we know the names of some key people who are deeply anti-Trump and who are, effectively, in league with the coup leaders (democrats like Schiff, Pelosi, and the clown posse from the Wednesday night stand-up).
Been a hell of a week, hasn’t it? At least next week’s TURKEYS will be honest Americans. Like most, getting a bit…er…baked.
Bonus? The gravy we’ll be talking about will be a medium brown instead of being payoffs via foundations and next of kin gigs.
Oh, sure. The democrats want this electioneering stunt to disappear now. Because if it doesn’t, it will reveal Hunter Biden was the “channel” for Joe Biden. Who, laughably, is still held up as a legit wannabe for 2020. AYFKM?
And on the Foundation front, did you see where “Peter Schweizer on Clinton Foundation’s money troubles: ‘They don’t have influence to sell’?
Maybe a grand jury ought to be looking into Epstein, Clinton, and the rest of the gigantic quid pro quo machinery that’s all part of The Swamp. If Trump is “fair game” why aren’t these people and their enterprises?
Next Week, Statistically
Relax. Putting up with the crap in the news this week has earned you a break, starting tomorrow.
In the upcoming 9-days (from Miller Time tonight to a week from Monday) most people will work 3-days. That’s working 33% of the time which, truth be told, sounds about right.
The few retail stock brokers, recycled as “wealth managers” who haven’t been replaced by machinery yet, will come in for National Call Your Broker Day, which is the day after Turkey when the markets be open a half day. That’s pencils out to a 38.9% work week.
The folks who will suffer most will be police, fire, and medical personnel. Some of them will work Thursday through Sunday next week. Their revenge? When they pull a 7 or 8-dayer for the opening of trout season next spring.
A couple of other planning notes for the week ahead:
Be sure and click here for 2018’s (Coping: The 5th Annual “Turkey Leftovers” Column) to read our often-repeated recipe for the 13-Coins S.S.T. sandwich – which is the best use of leftover turkey ever invented. Still on their “secret menu” which many great restaurants have, but most gen X-er’s are clueless about.
Or, if driving to Seattle is off the table (afraid of a little snow on I-90, are we?) you can turn south for a meander to the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY. The GoToLouisville website offers this:
“A Hot Brown is a hot open-faced sandwich originally created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, by Fred K. Schmidt in 1926. It was one of two signature sandwiches created by chefs at the Brown Hotel shortly after its founding in 1923.”
The main ingredients are turkey and mushrooms in a white sauce, some crisp bacon, toast points, grated (then melted) cheese on top. My bud Chet Rogers suggested a “Light, buttery Chardonnay” matches well. But, to my uncouth palate this is one of those rare dishes where a White Zin is useful.
Kicking and screamed, dragged back to point… I recommend “calling in well” Monday and Tuesday. They fake either a “medical emergency” (which could be as simple as running out of vodka, or as serious as diareaha) Wednesday. “Forgot to set my alarm” which you call in around lunch-time Friday.
You did take notes, right?
News Slop Never Stops
Just as the party was about to start (damn!). Well, if’n we must (don’t forget the King Ranch dinner rolls on the shopping list!!!):
Next Stop for the Global Digital Uprising (GDU)? Israel: Netanyahu says fraud allegations are an attempted coup. Except, this time, we expect plenty of “smoking gun” evidence.
Remember how supportive we were when the Ukraine phone call was put on a secure server, over complaints of demoncrats? Why Ure’s truly even suggested the reason dems were pissed was because it would prevent coup members from getting in and altering documents.
Remarkably, now we have proof-of-concept from coup-friendly CNN: “Former FBI lawyer under investigation after allegedly altering document in 2016 Russia probe.” He’s already moved on…but where’s the crim-probe? See how The Big Fix works in DC?
We have lightly penciled in Dec. 9 th for the IG Horowitz report and potential perp-walk. Honest turkey should be in one end and out the other by then. Which will leave America hungry for the other sort turkey in there, somewhere.
Prediction: Horowitz will paper over the crimes against Trump and will let the coup leaders walk. See, he’s been around Washington long enough to be politically neutered as we figure it. We fearlessly predict his report will attempt to be along the lines of a property settlement decree in family law court.
Instead, he should stand up for the Constitution – by the book – but that would reduce DC to shambles so he will be excusifying lest America be divided. My faith in his work is (telling you up from) higly skeptical. Everyone in DC has a “control file.” We just don’t see his, yet.
Out of State Drivers? When we saw the story Bad weather leads to 50 vehicle pileup up in Denver, we just had to wonder whether there was an “out of stater” in there somewhere. Just like Seattle drivers are expert in the rain, native Coloradans are generally good snow and slippery stuff drivers. Or,, with the ganj now legal, have people forgotten their skills over summer? 28, light snow and slippery as hell… and we’ve seen first-hand how Colorado drivers on I-25 leave about 10-inches between vehicles at 80-100 MPH between brake-slammings.
Gads – Nukes! So is it China or the NorKs as Russian media report Russian Watchdog Detects ‘Radiation Incident’ in South China Sea?
Markets Mired. In Trade War hype as Mood Sours After Global Times Says “Tariffs Rollback” Needed For Trade Deal; China Will “Fight Back” If Escalation Seen. The early future’s have our charts looking like this:
Not drawn (maybe tomorrow on the subscriber site) is the breakdown of what looks to us like a minior iv or (iii) oi V might have been just done with upside running room into early next week.
But, if I really believed that, I wouldn’t be sitting in cash, would I?
One needs to take time and consider the larger play going on. Fed H.6 money creation, (M1, 90-day rate annualized) argues the market advance should pause (6.6% annualized M1 growth). But the Repo Depot of the NY Fed is on a roll, slathering another $74.45 billion of one-day repo’s Thursday and then another 9-day $29.2 billion. That’s waving the Magic Wand of liquidity to the tune of $103.65/
Key thing to consider today is to observe (over here) whether the Fed wants the market to be a turkey for Trump, or if they will goose it, for their pals?
We’ve got some shrimp pizza to reheat for breakfast…so maybe when that’s down, things will make more sense. Remember that 15-minutes into today’s session the PMI Composite Flash will be released and that could move the market, too…
Just out: $80.6 billion in repo’s – rally? Here we come. Wave that magic wand of liquidity, suckas…
