Fed's 'Great Unwinding' Begins, And It's About Time — Now It's Congress' Turn To Act | Stock News & Stock Market Analysis - IBD

Fed's 'Great Unwinding' Begins, And It's About Time — Now It's Congress' Turn To Act | Stock News & Stock Market Analysis - IBD:

How did the balance sheet get so big that it's now a quarter the size of our entire economy? It was built up over eight years of buying Treasury and mortgage bonds, in the mistaken notion that massive Fed cash infusions into those markets would bolster the economy and foster a return to normalcy."

According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too."

Articles: Explaining the Narcissistic Rage of the Left

Articles: Explaining the Narcissistic Rage of the Left:

Image result for free clip art Fire Breathing Dragon"Why such unabated arch-loathing?  One possibility is that Trump's triumph dealt the progressive left a narcissistic injury from which they are still reeling.  Is there another explanation for why previously sober, thoughtful Americans have abandoned the rational in such numbers?

The elite see their virtue, rectitude, and moral superiority reflected back to them in the films, newspapers, advertisements, TV shows, and magazines they themselves create, and it is intoxicating – a gauzy reverie of self-ratifying congratulation.  Is it any wonder, after such unmitigated success, that the left is apoplectic about having its echo chamber shattered by a barbarian like Trump?"

"It is harmful to election integrity, and it is harmful to members of the immigrant community who are applying for citizenship. If you've registered to vote in the U.S., and you're not a citizen, it's potential grounds for the denial of your citizenship application."

Schmidt said that many more noncitizens could have mistakenly registered through the system, both in Philadelphia and elsewhere in Pennsylvania. However, he pointed out that no municipal election was close enough to have potentially been affected by improper voting. "

The prospect of our own NSA, CIA and FBI becoming politically weaponized has been shrouded by untruths, accusations and justifications.

You’ll recall DNI Clapper falsely assured Congress in 2013 that the NSA was not collecting “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.”"

The NDAA Is Fatally Flawed And Threatens Nati | The Daily Caller

The NDAA Is Fatally Flawed And Threatens Nati | The Daily Caller:

Image result for flickr commons images elizabeth warren"Looking at some of the early Christmas gifts buried deep on the National Defense Authorization Act for both liberals like Elizabeth Warren and our enemies like North Korea and Iran, it’s almost hard believe Republicans won an election in November.

Somehow, deep in the fine print almost no one in Washington ever reads, are a series of provisions snuck in to the NDAA by Senator Warren and Obama Administration holdovers at the Defense Department that will actually make America less safe and grow government bureaucracy."
