Republicans Consider Unfriending Obama on Facebook

What is the social networking world coming to?

[The following is reprinted from The Washington Post as written by Dana Milbank.]

Among the many ways Republican members of Congress are contemplating to punish President Obama for his executive actions on immigration is a proposal of elegant simplicity: They would refuse to invite him to the Capitol to give his State of the Union address.

Yes, that should do the job. And if this doesn’t force Obama to back down from his executive orders, Republican lawmakers can escalate by unfriending him on Facebook and unfollowing him on Twitter. If even this fails, they can take the extreme step of having their Christmas cards from the Obamas returned to sender. Surely, the president then would have no choice but to relent.

Warren Buffett Is Completely Wrong About Clinton

Warren may make great stock picks but he is not a politico.

buffettand hillary

Buffett has announced that Hillary Clinton will win the 2016 Presidential Election.

Not gonna happen and here is why.

 

His prediction is based on the list of divisive Republican Presidential candidates which has no standout candidate.  That much is obviously correct.

But his prize candidate, Hillary Clinton, has tons of baggage which will eliminate her.

First off she is too closely aligned with Obama who picked her as his Secretary of State.  Second, she has a black eye for messing up Benghazi as she left the State department.  Third, she is not known as a champion of the working class.  And fourth, she is aligned with old politics and business as usual.

What does this mean?  Americans are ready for change and the new majority of millennials and generation-x folk are looking for a new hero/heroine to lead the United States to the next level of hope and greatness.

Who can rise to the occasion?  Elizabeth Warren can.

elizabethwarrenShe fought harder than anybody for regulation of out of control banks. Elizabeth is not considered establishment.  She has a proven Congressional record of making progress not suppressing it.  Elizabeth fights for working class people.  And she is not aligned with Obama.

So Elizabeth Warren will be the next President of the United States.

Warren Buffett is not exactly winning when it comes to politics.  He picked Hillary in 2008.

What If Russia Was Kicked Out of the Olympics?

Would Putin change course on Ukraine?

putin olympicsAt what point does the World consider evicting a rogue country?

Would the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) have to make the request to the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio?

Or could the IAAF kick Russia out of the 2015 IAAF World Championships in Beijing?

In December 2013, the IOC considered expelling India from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

In recent years, the IOC suspended the national Olympic bodies of Kuwait, Ghana and Panama for political interference, but all were eventually reinstated.

In 1970, the IOC formally expelled South Africa from the Olympics. The country returned to the fold at the 1992 Barcelona Games.

Lots of questions.  Few answers.

 

Another Shocking Chart Predicts 2014 Crash

Multiple charts exist which predict another recession this year!

net_margin_bubble

Now, I am normally a very positive person.  In fact my first post for the new year was very hopeful.  But recently I found not one but two charts which show we could have a repeat of the recent Great Recession.

The first chart above shows how the Federal Reserve and Quantitative Easing have allowed Credit to run wild again.  In summary, the Net Margin (Credit minus Debt) is out of control.   For the past year it has risen as fast and to the same level as the year before the 2008 Great Recession.  Daniel Fisher of Forbes reported this as found by Ricardo Ronco of Aviate Global.  Ronco says, “…equities are running away from borrowing levels.”

How do we fix this bubble? We convince the Federal Reserve to issue loans to cities and states rather than financial institutions that only buy stocks and bonds. Cities and states will use the money for infrastructure which will create jobs.

Here is another prediction for the S&P 500 to drop 30%.  See http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell/2014/04/03/sp-500-will-peak-around-1900-to-1950-then-drop-30-saxo-bank-strategist/

But based on the above chart, I predict a drop of 50% not merely 30% in the S&P 500.

scary_djia_chartThe second chart above shows how the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is the same as 1929.   It has followed almost identically as it did in the years leading up to the Great Depression in 1929.

Big name investors like Warren Buffet and George Soros have cut their stock investments or shorted the market.

If another Great Recession occurs, riots will take place that are greater than the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations and President Obama will face impeachment.

Can another Great Recession be stopped?  Yes, the Federal Reserve can take two actions.

1. Put restrictions on QE funds to minimize leveraged lending.

2. Stop issuing QE funds to institutions that use “expected rent” as collateral.

You can make a difference by voting for the following White House Petition.
