I would recommend that people put money into hard assets to be ready for the coming Trump inspired stock mkt. crash after Jan. 1, 2018.

For those that watch the mkt., they didn't fix the bubble and it's about to pop again eh?

That 401k won't be worth jack ****!!

+GOP Senator Bob Corker
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) accused President Trump of “debasing” the country with his “untruths,” “name-calling” and “attempted bullying,

+ McCain

The question is when GOP who are not leaving will find the courage to stand up.

Much of the GOP in DC have mortgaged their soul in hopes of passing their agenda.

Second that.
We are in big trouble.

Look at this 100 year cycle on the Stock Market and how right now looks A LOT like 1927. Two hard, quick dips followed by crash.

True, but he too is following the pattern I pointed out where non-returning Senators are becoming anti-trumpers.


Non-returning senators were likely always anti-Trumpers.

You need to also look at Congressional approval which is slightly below diarrhea at the moment.

The stock market was set up for that with qualitative easing. If you haven't been expecting it to crash and big, then you haven't been watching them pump it with easy money.

All they need to do to tip it off is jack interest rates and stop printing. They just need to wait long enough to make sure no one blames Obama for it.

When it's Trump that will oversee exactly what you described; how can they blame Obama. But they will anyway, it's an established pattern.

I've already divested and looking for foreign investments. BRIC perhaps....and a Cabo condo...

Why do I need to look at that? I'm just remarking on a pattern I've noticed from watching the last few Congressmen leaving office at the end of their terms. It appears, to me, that it takes a Congressman to retire or leave office for them to grow a backbone and question Trump.

I think it has to do with Trump's base being their base or, at least, recognizing there's significant overlap. If they criticize Trump, they're going to be criticizing the people who will vote for them in the primary (eventually). It's very much political and it happens on both sides of the aisle, 'I believe this but could never say it because I'd lose re-election.' Corker, McCain and Flake all recognize that Trump is not a normal president. Trump supporters love Trump for not being normal. As Flake put it:


Reckless, outrageous, and undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as “telling it like it is,” when it is actually just reckless, outrageous, and undignified.


A couple of other senator's are skirting this line of thinking, Ben Sasse comes to mind. Yes though, 'liberals' and Democrats are cheering Flake for this because we recognize what a Trumpster fire this presidency is.

I am disappointed in Flake. As WaPo put it:


He rallied Americans not to let Trump’s habitual offenses become the new normal, never to “meekly accept the daily sundering of our country.”

Then he surrendered.

Trump is cleaning house? You trump supporters make me laugh. I would rather see our representatives speak-up and defend our democracy when our president is attacking it rather than ignore it! I'm sure you also don't think our current leader doesn't lie after all the times he's been caught doing just that. This is what you want in a president? Someone who lacks total credibility??? Lets also ignore all the immature name calling, ignorant rants and tweets. (I see your following Trumps lead with name calling - "Flaky Puff," very mature. Your following a typical high school bully who resorts to name calling, something Trump was back in the day and has never grown out of.

If a democratic president acted the way Trump has, you know you and all your other followers would be outraged, and rightly so.

And those of us who live in Arizona know this is a bunch of hooey! Flake was not going to be re-elected based on his record. McCain only stays in by playing his veterans card...

"Dysfunction" was there before Pres. Trump ever gained office.. Heck! it was there on his watch. Flake obviously made no ground to stop the liberal/socialist/commie hord that has infiltrated our Republic. Flake is right, "enough"!
One of these same "professional politicians" said about Trump, "let the professionals handle it". .. Really? The "professionals have "managed" the truth so long, they can't even comprehend it when they hear it. Flake? How fitting.

Warriors can ride the "hero" card, only for so long. It usually stops around the time they stop being warriors or have to actually work for a living. McCain is of the "unofficial" royalty in this country. The kind The C.O.T.U.S. rejects. Along with the D.O.I. It's sad, because at one time he was a hero.
