It Begins – Hillary “Trump’d” By The Donald In Key Swing State

It appears the deceitful imbroglio of Hillary's campaign have begun to wear on her most admiring ("well everyone lies a little bit right?") apologists and voters. As The Hill reports, Donald Trump tops Hillary Clinton (45% to 42%) in the latest poll from swing-state North Carolina. Clinton tops Jeb Bush and Rand Paul, so there's that, but eight Republicans (including Trump) are beating the former secretary of state. Perhaps most notably however, is that a new survey from FOX...

The Unlikely Rise Of Donald Trump And Bernie Sanders

Submitted by Bill O'Grady via Confluence Investment Management, In the spring of 2014, we wrote a series of Weekly Geopolitical Reports that looked at the 2016 elections. In these reports, we described the economic and political environment that had the potential to make the 2016 election historically important. The emergence and remarkable staying power of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders suggests that our earlier analysis and conclusions may be coming to pass. In this report, we will...

Presidential Candidate “Deez Nuts” Surges In Polls

If Donald Trump’s unlikely rise to the top of the polls tells us anything, it’s that Americans (or at least GOP primary voters) are sick of business as usual in Washington.  The endemic corruption, crony capitalism, rampant regulatory capture, and licentious logrolling that many voters have come to associate with the American political process has created a deep-seated desire for change and if there are two names which most certainly do not portend a break from business as usual inside...

The Donald vs. China (Or The Fallacy Of Protectionism)

Submitted by Pater Tenebrarum via Acting-Man.com, Not Every Populist Topic is Worth Exploiting For reasons that will forever remain a mystery to us, mercantilism and protectionism actually hold enormous popular appeal. The best explanation we can come up with for this phenomenon is that the support for such policies is based on a mixture of economic ignorance and relentless propaganda by vested interests over the past, say, four centuries. Still, it is almost comical that people are so...

Guest Post: Can Bernie’s Soft-Evolution ‘Trump’ An American Second Revolution?

Submitted by Ben Tanosborn, Wishful thinking can come in many shapes and sizes, but history and present reality do readily tell us that Bernie Sanders is more likely to walk among us during the early stage of the presidential campaign as a prophet than as a messiah.  And that is not such a bad thing, for martyrdom always seems to take place as precursor to major change; and this resolute honest New Yorker representing Vermont appears poised to bring inspirational change in the...

“They Have To Go”; Trump Vows To Deport All Illegal Immigrants

"You’re going to love me on immigration," Donald Trump told a crowd of reporters and fans who gathered in Iowa to hear the billionaire speak after he landed in a $7 million Sikorsky.  Trump, who drew sharp criticism in some circles after suggesting that Mexican immigrants were responsible for rape and drug addiction in the US, hasn’t backed down on calls for a tougher stance on immigration and to be sure, some voters share his views, even if they don’t necessarily agree with the rather...

The #1 Reason Why Donald Trump Is What America Needs (And Deserves)

Submitted by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com, Just a few weeks ago, US talk show host Stephen Colbert was asked if he thought that Donald Trump had a chance of becoming President of the United States. Colbert responded sincerely. “Honestly, he could. And that’s not an opinion of Trump. That’s my opinion of our nation.” He’s right. The Land of the Free may very well be ready for something completely different. And Trump certainly seems able to deliver. He is,...

Guest Post: A Trump “Morning In America”

Submitted by starfcker via The Burning Platform blog, This week marks a seminal shift in the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. This is the week the establishment rolled over and began to accept that he is their front runner. The wild attacks and blatant put downs will be muted from here on out as the establishment struggles to come to grips with their new reality. Trump has proven to be an immensely popular and muscularly resilient candidate. He has survived fire that would have killed...

Stop The “Bloodshed”: Trump Calls Truce With Fox News

As Hillary Clinton attempts to fend of a surging Bernie Sanders while addressing serious questions about her handling of sensitive government information during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, Donald Trump is busy trying to determine how best to handle a string of bad publicity which paradoxically has him well ahead of GOP rivals in the polls.  Trump, whose reputation for being "teflon" and "gaffe proof" has held up nicely since last Thursday’s first Republican primary debate,...

And the Renminbi Bloodletting Begins…

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Last week at my son's football game, a fellow parent remarked to me that bald heads are cool. I actually thought the guy may be off his rocker a bit, but then I figured that maybe he was trying to be nice as I've got more hair on my big toe than on my shaved head. Then realization struck.... This guy was trying to comfort himself as he was trying unsuccessfully to cover his own balding pate. Hiding balding can drive men nuts. You can look like Donald...
