“Where Does This Crisis End?” – Kurt Schlichter Lays Out The Left’s Violent Endgame

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Kurt Schlichter via Townhall.com,

The Democrat Party, its Media serfs, and Social Justice Incorporated are all outraged because we uppity normals are again presuming to rule ourselves, and their agony is delightful. Less delightful is how, in the process of trying to claw their way back into power, they are incinerating the norms and rules that preserve our political order. That stuff Hillary babbled about honoring the legitimacy of elections? Yeah, no. There’s an invisible asterisk only liberals can see that explains that the norms and rules are void when liberals lose.

So, where does this crisis end?

We know where the leftists want it to end, with us silenced and subservient forever, toiling to pay taxes for them to redistribute to their clients as they pick at, poke at and torment us. You look at the things Trump stands for and all of them are about lifting the yoke off of us – cutting taxes, slashing regulations, guaranteeing the Second Amendment, protecting our religious liberty, and safeguarding us from terrorists and illegals. But everything liberals want, everything Hillary ran on, is about clamping the yoke ever tighter around our necks – raising taxes, issuing more regulations, disarming us, limiting our religious freedom, and putting us at risk from terrorists and alien criminals. The whole leftist platform is about putting us down and keeping us down.

Think what they will do if they take power again.

They are certainly not going to risk us ever being able to repeat November’s rejection. California’s decline lays out their tyrannical road map. When the Democrats took power here, they “reformed” the election laws to lock-in their party, co-opted the “nonpartisan” redistricting process, and changed the ballot initiative system to make sure we will never see another unapproved proposition. They ensured there is no way to stop illegal aliens from voting because they want illegal aliens voting.

But even that’s not enough. The state government chose to allow its unofficial catspaws to intimidate and beat dissenters at UC Berkeley. California’s governing class wanted the thugs to prevail; it was a lesson to its opponents. I thought my novel People’s Republic, about post-freedom California, was an action thriller, not the first draft of a future history.

I was wrong.

Do you think Hillary Clinton or whatever aspiring Hugo

Watergate’s Bob Woodward: “Press Shouldn’t Whine About Trump, It Doesn’t Work With The Public”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Infamous Watergate reporter Bob Woodward had some uncomfortable words for the mainstream media’s safe-space-seekers. Following a tempestuous few days as the media and the White House toss propaganda grenades at one another, on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball” show, the Washington Post Associate Editor stated that:

the press “shouldn’t whine, and if we sound like we are an interest group only concerned with ourselves, it doesn’t work with the public. At the same time, we need to continue the in-depth inquiries, the investigations.”

Woodward begins at 6:45:

Woodward added that it’s not in the interest of either the Trump White House or the media to war with each other.

“I think everyone has accelerated this work. The other question to ask, is there any justification for Trump and people like — in his White House responding this way? And the only justification I can think of, which really isn’t a justification, but it accounts for emotional spasm of, my God, this is enemy of the people, I know that reporters have talked to people in the Trump house, — Trump White House about very sensitive intelligence operations, that we find out about in the press. And I think Trump is horrified that this is out there. And these are not necessarily things that are going to be published, but Trump is a newcomer saying, my God how do reporters know about these things? And so it’s — we’ve got to stop it.”

“[I]t’s not in our interest, the media’s interest to have a war with the Trump White House. It’s not in Trump’s interest to have this war.”

Sadly, it appears it’s too late to get this toothpaste back in the tube (for both sides).





Charts Of The Week: 10 Reasons To Be Cautious In This Market

Submitted by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

Visualizing 10-Reasons For Caution

Just recently, David Rosenberg in a recent research note, laid out 10-reasons to be cautious in the market. I thought it would be useful to look at each of these in a visual form to get a better idea of what he is addressing.

The obvious reason to look at these indicators is that market records are records for a reason. As I wrote previously:

First, “record levels” of anything are records for a reason. It is where the point where previous limits were reached. Therefore, when a ‘record level’ is reached, it is NOT THE BEGINNING, but rather an indication of the MATURITY of a cycle. While the media has focused on employment, record stock market levels, etc. as a sign of an ongoing economic recovery, history suggests caution.  The 4-panel chart below suggests that current levels should be a sign of caution rather than exuberance.”

4-panel-recession-watch

However, while economic data suggests we may be closer to the end of the current economic cycle than the beginning, data related specifically to the stock market is also suggesting the same.

Let’s take a look:

1 – Confidence Levels at 105

The chart below a COMPOSITE confidence index consisting of both the University of Michigan and Census Bureau indices. At 105, the index is currently at levels that have historically denoted the end of an economic cycle. (This should be expected as it is the point in the economic cycle where everything is now “as good as it gets.”)

2 – Investor’s Intelligence Sentiment at 61.8%

The Investor’s Intelligence survey is a survey of professional newsletter writers and professional investors. It has a long record and has been widely adopted as a contrarian market indicator for good reason. At 61.8%, the index is currently at levels normally associated with market peaks both short and longer-term.

3 – Market Vane Bullish Sentiment: 64%

The Market Vane bullish sentiment index is a yardstick for traders as it measures the number of traders that are long a certain commodity. In this case the S&P 500 index. Currently, at 64%, as with the other indicators above, it is currently reflecting levels of bullishness that have historically been associated with corrective actions.

Tom Perez Wins Vote To Lead Democratic Party

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Having fallen just shy of victory in the first round of votes, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez (and Obama/Clinton loyalist) has defeated Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee in a blow to Bernie Sanders and the progressive wing of the party.

Vice President Biden and other key figures from the Obama administration supported Perez, who backed Hillary Clinton in the primary. Sanders and many of his allies backed Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress and a star on the left. The party remains clearly divided…

Keith Ellison was defeated by a billionaire-led innuendo campaign slurring him as an anti-semite. That’s the Democratic Party for you.

…winning by 235 to 218 in the second round of voting (after failing to get the 213.5 votes required in the first round).

As The Hill reports, the race to become the next Democratic Party leader split along establishment-grassroots lines and in many ways mirrored the divisive 2016 presidential primary between Sanders and Clinton.

The mainstream Democrats won out again.

Perez, the 55-year-old son of Dominican immigrants, becomes the party’s public face and chief spokesperson in charge of staking out Democratic opposition to President Trump.

Prior to serving as President Obama’s Labor secretary, Perez was a civil rights attorney in the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder, who endorsed him in the chairmanship race.

He has almost no electoral experience, save for a successful bid for Montgomery County Council and a failed run at Maryland attorney general, in which he was disqualified over a technicality.

As chairman of the DNC, Perez inherits a monumental rebuilding project across the country after years of Democratic losses at every level of government.

And he will also have to go about the work of unifying a fractured party.

Bernie Sanders congratulated former Perez on becoming the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee, however warned that “the same old is not working.”

“I congratulate Tom Perez on his election as chairman of the Democratic National Committee and look forward to working with him,” Sanders said in a statement.

“At a time when Republicans control the White House, the U.S. House, U.S. Senate and two-thirds of all statehouses, it is imperative that Tom understands that the same-old, same-old is not working and that we must open the doors of the party to working people and young people in a way that has never been done before,” the lawmaker added.

In his statement, Sanders maintained that it is time for the Democrats to “stand up to the 1 percent” and advance progressive values. “Now, more than ever, the Democratic Party must make it clear that it is prepared to stand up to the 1 percent and lead this country forward in the fight for social, racial, economic and

JPMorgan: Institutions, Hedge Funds Are Using The Rally To Sell To Retail

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Last week we reported that for the first time since the election, Bank of America’s smart money clients were, as a group, selling stocks. As BofA’s Jill Carey Hall calculated, after significant buying over the past few weeks, net client sales of $2.1 billion were the largest since June.  However, there was a further nuance, one which has emerged as troubling for those calling for sustained gains in the market.

As the following chart shows, while Private Clients, aka high net worth retail investors, have been on a furious buying spreed unlike anything seen in the past decade (green area chart below), prominent institutional clients have skipped the Trump rally altogether and have been net sellers for the past 12 months, with hedge funds joining in over the last few weeks.

Now, in the latest report by JPM’s Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou – who writes the popular weekly “Flows & Liquidity” report – he confirms that the latest “Great Rotation” is one not from bonds into stocks, but from “smart money” to retail investors who have finally joined in the market euphoria, traditionally seen as a topping sign for rallies.

According to JPM, confirming the ongoing troubles plaguing the active investor community (which was slammed most recently by none other than Warren Buffett who in his annual letter praised passive investing, called Jack Bogle a “hero”, and lashed out at hedge funds), YTD $83bn has been invested into equity ETFs while $15bn got out of active equity mutual funds. This not only means that the shift away from active funds continues unabated but also that the overall retail flow into equity markets is accelerating. JPM estimates that around $50bn-$100bn was invested into equity funds last year. The $68bninvested into equity funds on net YTD implies an annualized flow of $442bn, almost six times larger than last year’s pace.

Panigirtzoglou adds that while the vast majority of the YTD ETF flows went into large unlevered equity index ETFs, leveraged ETFs amplified the equity market rally also via rebalancing flows “enforced” by daily market moves. This is shown in Figure 2 which shows the daily capital and rebalancing flows by leveraged equity ETFs. While on average leveraged equity ETFs saw a capital outflow YTD, their rebalancing flows were very positive, cumulatively effectively amplifying the

Kim Murder Suspect Says She Was Paid $90 To Rub VX Toxin On His Face

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

In the latest turn of increasingly more bizarre events leading up the death of North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un's half brother, who as revealed late last week had been poisoned with the deadly VX nerve agent, the arrested Indonesian woman who is one of the suspects in the killing said she was paid $90 to apply a baby oil-like liquid to his face in what she believed was a "prank."

Siti Aisyah, in her first meeting with Indonesian officials after more than a week in detention said Saturday she didn’t know that the substance—subsequently identified by police as a banned, lethal nerve agent known as VX—was poisonous. Police believe Ms. Aisyah and another woman, Doan Thi Huong of Vietnam, applied the chemical to Mr. Kim’s face on Feb. 13 in a three-second assault at Kuala Lumpur International Airport that was orchestrated by a group of North Korean men. Mr. Kim died shortly afterward. Aisyah told Indonesian officials she thought she was playing a prank as part of a reality show.

According to Indonesian officials, Aisyah told authorities she did not want her parents to see her in custody. "She doesn't want her family get sad to see her condition," Indonesia's deputy ambassador to Malaysia, Andriano Erwin said after speaking to the suspect. Erwin said Aisyah told Indonesian officials that men with Japanese or Korean appearances, and names name like James and Chang, asked her to carry out the act, and that she was paid about 400 Malaysian ringgit ($90).

As the WSJ adds, until several years ago, Aisyah, a 25-year-old from a small town in western Java, was working at a clothing store at a mall in Indonesia, making about $200 a month. But she has traveled extensively in Asia since then, people with knowledge of the matter told the Journal.

The other woman of Vietnamese origin, who was also arrested as a murder suspect, also said she thought she was taking part in a prank video, Vietnam's foreign ministry said on Saturday according to Reuters. Hanoi had not previously confirmed that Doan Thi Huong was Vietnamese, saying only that it was in touch with authorities in Malaysia, where Kim Jong Nam

Armed Man With A Knife Rams Car Into Pedestrians In Heidelberg; Attacker Shot By Police

In what may be the second vehicle-based terrorist attack in Germany in as many months, moments ago the AP and local press reported that according to German police a man rammed his car into a pedestrian area in a central square in the city of Heidelberg, injuring three people, then fled armed with a knife, and was subsequently shot after being tracked down by officers.

Police spokesperson Anne Baas said one of the three people hit outside a bakery on Saturday afternoon was seriously injured.

The suspect fled and was then found by a police patrol, and was shot by an officer following a short standoff. He was taken to a hospital.

French President Fires Back At Trump Over Paris Comments

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

One day after president Trump remarked in a speech at a conference that a friend thought


“Paris is no longer Paris” after attacks by Islamist militants, French President Francois Hollande fired back at Donald Trump on Saturday. During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, Trump repeated his criticism of Europe’s handling of attacks by Islamist militants saying a friend “Jim” no longer wanted to take his family to Paris.

Hollande said Trump should show support for U.S. allies. “There is terrorism and we must fight it together. I think that it is never good to show the smallest defiance toward an allied country. I wouldn’t do it with the United States and I’m urging the U.S. president not to do it with France,” Hollande said.

I won’t make comparisons but here, people don’t have access to guns. Here, you don’t have people with guns opening fire on the crowd simply for the satisfaction of causing drama and tragedy,” Hollande said, responding to questions during a visit at the Paris Agric fair.

They may not have access to guns, but they have access to trucks which they then use to murder dozens of innocent bystanders in increasingly more frequent terrorist incidents, meanwhile the lack of guns prevents the local population from defending itself when one or more terrorists use weapons to attack and murder members of the defenseless French population.

Oh yes, “here” the French people have also been living under what has effectively become a permanent state of emergency every since the November 2015 Bataclan mass murder.

In fact, more than 230 people have died in a series of assaults in France since the beginning of 2015, and the country has been under a state of emergency rules since November the same year. Trump’s comments also drew a rebuke from the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo.

Meanwhile, another attack has taken place in the German town of Heidelberg, where as reported moments ago a knife-yielding man drove his car into a pedestrian area, injuring three, and was later shot by the local police.





Barclays Server Crash Leaves Customers Unble To Withdraw Cash, Use Debit Cards

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Having managed to stem its recent earnings rout, reporting a Q4 rebound in income from continuing operations which rose to £380 million after reporting a loss of £2.24 billion a year ago, UK’s Barclays is facing a more traditional problem: on Saturday Barclays customers have reported problems using their cards in shops and withdrawing money from some cash machines according to the BBC.

Barclays customers tweeted about problems using their cards when out shopping or trying to access online banking on Saturday afternoon. “Wondered why my card was declined when paying for lunch. Barclays servers have crashed. Brilliant,” said one customer, James. Other echoed his sentiments.

Major problem with Barclays Bank as their server is down effecting all branches nationwide!

— Tammy Lei (@xtlhx) February 25, 2017

According to the BBC, The bank said it was “working to fix” a problem and advised customers to use other banks’ cash machines. It added that telephone banking and in-branch payments were also affected and apologised “for any inconvenience”.

We’re still experiencing issues affecting Barclays Debit Card and ATM transactions. Our teams are working to get this restored.

— Barclays UK (@BarclaysUK) February 25, 2017

It is not yet known how many of Barclays’ 15 million card customers have been affected by the problems. In a tweet, the bank said: “We’re still experiencing issues affecting Barclays Debit Card and ATM transactions. Our teams are working to get this restored.” Barclays added: “Technical issues are affecting some digital services. We’re investigating this and apologise for any inconvenience.”

Technical issues are affecting some digital services. We’re investigating this and apologise for any inconvenience.

This is the latest in a series of technical “glitches” to hit the bank recently. Today’s problems come months after thousands of Barclays customers in the north of the UK had payments wrongly taken from their accounts. Last October, Barclays said customers were refunded after they had duplicate debit card payments taken.

Aswath Damodaran - Session 9: Historical, Analyst & Fundamental Growth

By VW Staff. Originally published at ValueWalk.


In this session we continued our discussion of growth by first looking at the limitations of analyst estimates of growth and then examining the fundamentals that drive growth. Starting with a very simple algebraic proof that growth in earnings has to come either from new investments or improved efficiency, we looked at how best to estimate growth in three measures of earnings: earnings per share, net income and operating income. With each measure of earnings, the estimation of growth boiled down to answering two questions: (1) How much is this company reinvesting to generating for future growth? (2) How well is it reinvesting? (3) How much growth is added or lost by changes in returns on existing investments? In the next session, we will continue this discussion after the quiz.
