Will Ginsberg news trump President’s border wall announcement? We’ll see

I’m going out on a limb in today’s post with what Dr. Joseph P. Farrell calls high-octane speculation.

Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death will be announced this afternoon at roughly 3:14 pm EST.

How do I know? I putting two separate items together. The 2647 drop from Saturday and that the President will address the nation on border security this evening at 9 pm.

Like the important Dec. 5, 2018 Congressional hearings that had to be canceled due to the death of President George H W Bush, the death of Ginsberg will make the President delay his speech or at least overshadow it in the news.

I don’t feel comfortably making this prediction, but I feel it will come true in the pit of my stomach. So let’s leave it here for now and see if it plays out later today.



Dark forces in the stock market

What we are witnessing in the stock market is unprecedented with moves mostly lower, but with a record-breaking break out to the upside on Wednesday.

The 1,086 point move on the Dow was the highest point move ever. The question Tuesday morning is why will we give back more than 400 points to the downside?

These moves and the huge slide before Christmas feel like a tug of war between two factions.

One with a need to damage the economy along with President Trump’s claims that he is succeeding where his predecessor failed.

The other side is somewhat muted in its response to this highjacking of the markets.

How else do you describe the latest moves?

Fed chief Jay Powell appears to be in with the first camp. How else to categorize four rate rises this year while enjoying full unemployment without finding inflation in the couch cushions.

In all my years of market watching I have no other idea of what we are witnessing in the markets. The moves are unprecedented, so therefore a new thought n the cause is needed.

The dark forces in the market are attempting to take the economy into recession through cratering consumer confidence by taking the wealth effect away from Americans. Next will be to repeal the tax cut in the House in 2019.

With these initiatives the Democrats feel they have a better shot of gaining the White House in 2020. It’s a nefarious plan backed by Democratic money in the markets.

Let’s see who will ultimately will win the war for hearts, minds and wallets.

Welcome to DC

Walking around Washington DC with my family all day.

Museums are open because they have funding until end of the year and since Congress is not in session it is very enjoyable with no crowds.

I just learned that the President is not in town but travelled to Iraq to visit our troops.

So we have the place to ourselves.

On another matter, this blog is blowing up with massive traffic for the my envelop post at the George H W Bush funeral.

I’ll post again tomorrow morning.

Trump could hold FISA docs until 2020 campaign

President Trump told The New York Post in an exclusive interview that he may hold the declassify FISA warrant applications and other documents from Robert Mueller’s probe under wraps until needed.

In a broad discussion the President said he would release them if the Democrats went after his office or his family, but would like to hold off until his re-election campaign in 2020.

“I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are,” Trump told The Post exclusively.
