It’s The Economy, Prznint Stupid

It’s All About ME, Part Infinity

Full of hot air?

You may have noticed yesterday that the Dow leaped off a cliff (plunged more than 600 points), the NASDAQ jumped too (2.78 percent, mostly due to a slump in the demand for iPhones), and lemming-like, the S&P, who wants to be in the popular kids clique copycat’ed and opened the window and leaped (almost 2 percent).

Prznint Trade Wars tells us why:

Scanning the news, I don’t really see much concern that harassment of our drooling moron-in-chief was a big concern, but I do see that Prznint Stupid himself seems to be panicking the markets, what with his trade wars, projected yearly deficit of $1T* Ameros, and the fear that our stable genius have a nutty and slap tariffs on foreign cars.

One thing that had absolutely no impact on the markets plunge? Worry about Dims investigating harassing Prznint Stupid.

Who’s Next To Be ‘You’re Fired’ed’?

HHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and The Last Crusade?

The WaPo tells us that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is the next big name to be given the ol’ cheese sandwich and a roadmap.

Be prepared for a shock, Gentle Readers: Hair Füror allegedly says that Elsa, er, Nielsen wasn’t aggressive enough in implementing his policies, so you know, stealing children and then putting the kids in cages was mild in his opinion.

Good News For John McCain!!!

Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan), who is occupying Grandpa Walnut’s seat, has said that he is going to step down at the end of the year. SO if Martha McSally is appointed by Gov. Deucy to fill the Walnuts-Kyl seat, then she will then have to run twice more:

  • 2020 (because appointed senators get to serve only until the next federal election)
  • 2022 (because that is when Walnut’s term ends)

Oh, yeah, I buried the lead: Martha McSally has conceded:

Krysten Sinema replaces the utterly replaceable Republican Sen. Jeff Flake and will become the first woman to represent Arizona in the Senate. The Terrible Sand Kingdom is turning purple. They have not elected a Democrat since the 1990s

Boom.

News at 11.

They have standing to bring the suit, and pretty much this should be a slam-dunk.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Seething Rage.

After working to establish the press as the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE and the Mueller investigation as a TOTAL WITCH HUNT, Hair Füror has a new hobby! He is now targeting the electoral process itself! Let’s examine his timeline for the past few days and see if we discern a pattern:

AP notes that Florida Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter said there is no evidence of wrongdoing in Broward County, whereas Prznint Stupid and Gov. Batboy, er, Rick Scott have, without evidence, accused Democrats of committing massive, historic, legendary, voter fraud, which is pretty funny when you consider that they also call the Democrats disorganized and failing.

Eat the Rich, cont.

Ray Dalio (who founded Bridgewater Associates and has an estimated net worth of $18.1 billion) warned  the (probably well-marbled) attendees of the Summit investment conference that the plutocrats will be the first eaten during the class war that will arise between the have and the have-nots during the next downturn.

Barron’s reports:

In his speech this week, he cited a Federal Reserve survey statistic that 40% of U.S. households could not raise $400 in case of emergency without selling something.

“We might not have contact with those people, but that is a reality,” Dalio told the crowd, who paid thousands of dollars to sit on the Palace Theater’s velvet seats and hear him speak.

The current polarization—both politically and socially—is most analogous to the 1930s, he argued. “It has to be dealt with,” Dalio said, saying if he were running things, he’d declare the wealth gap and opportunity gap a “national emergency.”

Really?

“But I fear that probably will not be done by the next time we have a downturn, and I fear for what that conflict is going to be like.”

And in related news, Hotel’s underwater villa costs $50,000 per night.

Pass the mustard, please.

She Seems Nice

Image: The Heavy – click for their coverage, which includes the video that I will not embed here.

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) shows us again why most Americans think that Republicans are racist:

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), running for election against an African-American man [Ed. – Democrat Mike Espy, an African-American former congressman and agriculture secretary–TG], joked in a video posted online that if she were invited by one of her supporters to a “public hanging,” she would be in “the front row.”

The clip was published on Twitter Sunday by a Mississippi blogger, who said Hyde-Smith was campaigning with a cattle rancher when she made the comment.

“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row,” Hyde-Smith said. There was no further context for the remark immediately available.

And now, for the inevitable non-apology:

“In a comment on Nov. 2, I referred to accepting an invitation to a speaking engagement. In referencing the one who invited me, I used an exaggerated expression of regard, and any attempt to turn this into a negative connotation is ridiculous,” Hyde-Smith said.

So you see, you haters are the REAL RACISTS for suggesting that the very white Republican from Mississippi, Cindy Hyde-Smith when joking about a lynching was being anything other than humorous.

Hyde-Smith is running for the US Senate; there is going to be a run-off between herself and Espy Nov. 27.
