Let’s see if the BOOMS come on Election Day

======================= SPECIAL SUNDAY POST ======================

Something is afoot as the midterm elections draw near.

Expected BOOMS have died on the vine as DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has further exhibited his nine lives. His sit down with President Trump on Air Force One and subsequent nixing of his Congressional panel testimony prove he surely has cards left in his hand to be played.

I have to assume through the continuing silence on Rosenstein from the White House the FISA declassification will not be used to taint the midterm election. My thought suggests that the parsing of all the information from declassifying the FISA documents would require a few weeks to decimate the impact of the news for general population.

You could not break the news with revelations that the Obama White House was aware and updated almost daily though intelligence briefings about the spying on a rival party presidential campaign and president-elect by using a Democratic Party oppositional report to allow the Clinton campaign to get espionage court to allow the FBI/CIA through our allies to spy on American citizens.

That scenario is just too much for a general population to wrap their heads around in two weeks. And given the divisiveness of the country, it would probably fall on deaf ears as partisan news organizations would couch the charges as a means just to sway the election.

No, indictments would need to be revealed with press conferences and perp walks to even register a blip on the radar of the national stage.

The time needed for all that has passed and the lack of communication from the administration has pretty much confirmed this theory.

I have to assume that Trump’s White House feels there is no need to muddy the waters even further, since their polling data shows the House and Senate are not in jeopardy at this time.

That’s what I take away from the lack of BOOMS prior to the election. The BOOMS will occur on Nov. 6.

Are the markets a tell on the midterms?

Are we seeing real-world exercises being conducted as a result of President Trump’s ongoing battle with the Deep State?

All of a sudden last week large institutional investors woke up and decided that the bull market was coming to an end and the Federal Reserve, which has been begging for the last decade to get the inflation rate close to 2 percent, discovered that runaway inflation was a real concern and said it would raise rates “aggressively” to combat it.

Now admittedly no market only rises with no corrections or pullbacks and it may be a little early to attribute the latest equity choppiness to anything more than profit taking and it being October, but the timing is curious.

The markets also have international concerns in Italy and China, which could be the contagion to hurt US growth and need to be watched carefully, but not to the degree we are seeing right now.

Trump did pick Fed chief Jerome Powell and he has reigned in the number of voices in the Fed speaking on the economy. Under ex-chief Janet Yellen it seemed even the maintenance staff at the Fed were allow to opine on monetary policy for TV audiences.

The President on Wednesday questioned the Fed’s rhetoric on inflation to reporters saying he thought it was crazy for Powell & Co. to be so aggressive in its stance on raising rates.

You see the Fed doesn’t really have to raise rates to curtail growth right now. The threat alone is enough to squeeze lenders into jacking up loan rates or to call in more questionable loans, which all dampen continuing growth. And as markets fall margin calls can steepen the decline as investors sell what they have to cover other bets.

So let’s keep an eye on this as the midterms near. I’m sure The President will have much to say should this sell off continue.

Kavanaugh’s confirmation will put Feinstein in spotlight

======================= SPECIAL SATURDAY POSTING ==================

SCOTUS Associate Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s vote will happen on Saturday afternoon despite efforts by Senator Feinstein to wrangle up dissenting votes.

Note Feinstein has a phone in her right hand, which may at some point in the future may allow us to know what this heated conversation was all about. Certainly the NSA knows what was said by whom.

Senator Feinstein has Senator Murkowski backed into a corner prior to Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation vote.

Judging from body language and facial expressions it was not an enjoyable discussion at all.

This very well could be the beginning of the end for Sen. Feinstein as Kavanaugh’s confirmation will now allow the FBI to fully investigate how her office handled the Dr. Ford materials and leaked them to the press.

Not to mention that Feinstein had an alleged Chinese spy was part of her staff for almost 20 years.

If you saw the video of senators Schumer and Feinstein press conference, this woman has a lot more on her mind that just battling a SCOTUS nominee. It appears this is a life-threatening situation for the California Democrat.

Between now and Election Day we will see many allegations of corruption against Democrats, as the FISA documents are released and the charade that Kavanaugh’s accusers put on in the Senate over the last two weeks.

It will be very difficult for the House or the Senate to swing in the Dems favor once the charges are announced. The “Not Trump” movement will still be strong on both coasts but the middle of the country could swing red after hearing the fraudulent actions of some of the “safe” Democrats.

For me personally, I am looking forward to Michelle Obama’s “rock star” book tour allegedly kicking off in the middle of November, just as the county comes to realize that her husband’s administration was spying on a presidential candidate in order to help Hillary Clinton presidential aspirations.

It will make the Watergate scandal look like a routine breaking and entering charge.

 

 

 

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.
