Mr. Putin goes to Washington

Well the Trump treason charges by those on the left have died back to a murmur as the President offered an invitation to President Putin to come to Washington on the eve of the midterm elections in November.

Why is this significant? Well the meeting between the two leaders this week may have set up a dialog between the two countries on what they know about this “Russian collusion” fable.

If you look at the Trump/Putin press conference after their one-on-one meeting, then you see Putin offering Special Counsel Robert Mueller access to question the 11 Russians he indicted.Knowing of course that the indictments were a straw man move by Mueller.

There was also discussions about allowing Russia investigators to question U.S. ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul and financier Bill Browder. The mere discussion of allowing Russia to question an American diplomat in a criminal investigation was a shot at the Obama administration and Clinton campaign. It will not happen but the threat or mere talk of it has the left quieting their treason rhetoric.

Putin also spoke of billionaire and Democratic supporter George Soros in not so glowing terms.

These comments put the”New World Order” globalists on notice that these two men are looking to put an end to this agenda. To out the hundreds of globalist players as frauds and much more heinous actors.

The Putin DC meeting in October may be the grand finale of a highly newsworthy late summer/early fall fireworks show that will may make the midterm elections almost a non-event for Democrats when all is said and done.

US can’t afford peace with Russia

With hundreds of trillions of dollars on the line, the US media is beating the drum on the 70-year-old plus Russia is bad narrative.

The entire military-industrial complex was built on that premise that we had to go toe-to-toe with Russia on every aircraft, tank and nuclear missile — even if the East did not have that weapon.

What will happen if the Bogey Man is not so bad after all.

Now along comes President Trump to stick a pin in that idea and it unleashes forces from the left and right beholden to escalating defense budgets and growing military bases in their districts.

Peace is too costly to break out across the US visa vis Russia. We need that 70-year-old premise that NATO and containment are what the world needs.

Of course Trump will survive the onslaught of criticism, however threatening to take the milk and honey away from the defense contractors and intelligence agencies is quite another matter.

It was JFK who threatened to break up the intelligence agencies –most notably the CIA — into pieces in 1963 that may have played a part in his assassination.

Let’s hope nothing untoward happens again.

A US economic snapshot in the middle of 2018 — not all is well

Let’s take a quick look at the US economy and where it may be headed in the near term.

While unemployment is said to be very low, the rate is still artificially low due to the uncounted Americans no longer in the workforce because of chronic joblessness.

Producer and consumer pricing are rising — not because of tariffs as the left will cite — due to the excessive capital washing out of the stock and bond market. The stock price run up over the last three years was engineered by the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing capital finding safe haven in stocks and bonds.

Now that capital is exiting the security markets and finding better treatment with private equity firms that are buying out manufacturing and consumer brand companies, which drives up prices in order for the new owner — the PE firm — to make money from the investment through putting the brands deeper into debt to make special payments to them.

So this capital is not from the average American, but the repercussions are being felt by these average Americans through higher prices. Look at the biggest PE firms raising record amounts for new funds.

Taking a quick look at the US bond market to see where the real problems are. The difference in return rates between lending Uncle Sam money over 2 years versus 30 years.

The 2-year return is 2.61%, the 30-year interest rate is 2.96%. The delta between these two 0.35 percentage points return over 28 years. This is what is called a flat yield curve, since the interest curve is very shallow.

In the environment of the bond market capital is not treated well at all with artificially low returns, so this is pushing additional big money out of the public capital markets and into the private funding markets.

What is the down side of this move? Look at the number of bankruptcies in the retailing sector over the last year. These stores: Toys R US and a dozen or so women’s apparel stores are all closed or limping along because these companies were so leveraged up on debt that they could not pay off their huge debt levels imposed on them by their private equity owners.

But don’t worry about these PE firms because they took their money upfront and more than likely owed some of the companies bonds, which were paid off in the bankruptcy.

Putin and Trump both know who the real villains are

What can we take away from the joint press conference between Presidents Trump and Putin Monday in Helsinki?

Trump knows from the unredacted DOJ Inspector General’s report that Russia played no part in the throwing of the 2016 presidential election. Despite the hollering from the left and some right-wing Fox TV commentators, that he sold out the US intelligence, both presidents know exactly who was involved in the “conspiracy” to blame the Russians.

You can be sure that the Russians know what it is in the DOJ IG’s report. Not from Trump, but from their own spy network.

Don’t be surprised if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s recent Russian indictments turn out to be working with Democratic operatives or more probable never see the light of an US court room. Why would Putin offer Mueller the opportunity to come to Russia and see their investigation into the operatives? They know the truth.

I have been told that the Trump has signed an executive order to declassify the IG’s report so that all can see what it contains, however with the information being so damning that may not occur until after say Labor Day to have an impact for the run up to the 2018 Congressional races.

As I have written earlier the explosive report will outline the quid pro quo between the Obama White House and the Clinton campaign on the cover up of the email server. This involves the infamous Phoenix tarmac meeting between former President Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch with a phone pick up from the Oval Office.

The whole event was captured by the Secret Service and NSA and is said to be transcribed in the report.

Look for United States Attorney John Huber to be bringing charges against all these individuals after Labor Day as well.

I think the richest rhetoric from yesterday was ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s tweet on Trump’s performance.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

Brennan knows his days of being able to walk freely are numbered and his feeble attempt to rally Republicans back to the Cold War days really rings hallow. Brennan and John Clapper Former United States Director of National Intelligence will feel the sting of Huber’s indictments.

All in all I believe President Trump had a great trip abroad. He’s telling the world that America comes first with his administration. He’s righting a 30-year wrong of “allies” taking advantage of America to the point that our citizens are hurting while the rest of the world benefits from a forced global outlook.

The pendulum is finally swinging in the direction of the US and for that I am grateful.

The Russians love their people too

I fail to see the downside for the US with President Trump meeting with Russia’s President Putin.

The left’s hysteria over Russian involvement in the 2016 election will turn out in the end to be a ruse brought to them by President Obama/Clinton team with no connections to the Trump campaign.

The ultimate proof for this is the inability of a federal judge to even sentence Gen. Flynn for a rigged confession of speaking with the Russians. If there was any truth to the charge and the alleged commission by Flynn, then he should have been sentenced to the “crime”.

In the meantime, how can the left denigrate the idea of meeting with the Russians — thinking it is 1950 at the beginning of the Cold War. Open dialog between Russia, China and America can and will result in hug savings for the US in military spending going forward, since the fear and loathing of Russia and China will be diminished.

We will see in the next two months additional revelations coming out of the Department of Justice’s 2106 election investigation how the FBI fabricated reports to tie the Trump campaign to Russia.

Gen. Flynn will more than likely be able to pull his guilty plea over these fabricated reports, since it will now not cost him the millions of dollars it would have to clear his name.

No the real fear of the Democrats to Trump meeting with Putin is that they will be found out to have been crying wolf over these charges.
