What the Boris Landslide Means for the Climate Debate

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley – Re-Blogged From WUWT

The fasmunist haters of democracy in Antifa have been rioting in London in protest at the landslide that the voters accorded to Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party in Thursday’s general election.

Like the election of Donald Trump in 2016, the election of Boris Johnson in 2019 demonstrates just how far the totalitarians in the “Democratic” and “Labor” parties have departed from their working-class roots, and how much they hate and fear democracy itself, and how much good reason they have to fear the common sense of the voters – especially those in the working class.

The Election’s Finally Over. Now Things Can Go Back To “Normal”

By John Rubino – Re-Blogged From Dollar Collapse

As contentious as the US midterm elections were, there was never a scenario in which they mattered. Any possible configuration of Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate would have yielded pretty much the same set of economic policies going forward: Ever-higher debt, upward trending interest rates and (through the combination of those two) rising volatility.

So with the sideshow now in the rear view mirror, we can get back to our new normal. From this morning’s media reports:

Trump May Have Won Popular Vote

By Paul Joseph Watson – Re-Blogged From http://www.InfoWars.com

Three million votes in the U.S. presidential election were cast by illegal aliens, according to Greg Phillips of the VoteFraud.org organization.

If true, this would mean that Donald Trump still won the contest despite widespread vote fraud and almost certainly won the popular vote.

“We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens,” tweeted Phillips after reporting that the group had completed an analysis of a database of 180 million voter registrations.

Stocks Really Sway Elections

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

With 2016’s contentious US presidential election just days away now, traders are still trying to game the outcome of this tightening race.  With a Hillary Clinton victory long priced in, the mounting odds Donald Trump will prevail have big implications for major markets.  One critical place traders should look for clues to how Americans will vote is the stock markets.  Recent stock performance really sways election results.

This assertion certainly sounds dubious.  When Americans are asked what the most-important issues for determining their votes are, the stock markets wouldn’t even make the list.  But interestingly a recent Pew Research poll found that the economy was the number-one issue in this election.  90% of Trump supporters, 80% of Clinton supporters, and 84% of all registered voters rated the economy at the very top.

That beat out terrorism as very important to 80% of all voters, foreign policy at 75%, health care at 74%, gun policy at 72%, and immigration at 70%.  Nothing is more important to Americans than the economy.  The state of it greatly affects our abilities to earn healthy incomes to support our families, our states of well-being, and our hopes for higher standards of living in the future.  Americans have long voted with their wallets.

Regardless of Who Wins the Election, Confidence in Washington DC ALREADY Is Shattered

By Clint Siegner – Re-Blogged From https://www.moneymetals.com

It just doesn’t matter much whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins the election, at least in terms of gold and silver market fundamentals. That said, the contest itself is signaling something important precious metals investors should be watching intently.

This campaign is dragging whatever prestige is still associated with the Office of President into the mud. Few voters on either side bother to spend much time arguing the greatness of their candidate. When both Trump and Clinton carry more baggage than American Airlines, it’s easier to focus on their opponent’s shortcomings.

The victor in this epically polarized contest will garner only tepid support from a minority of Americans. He or she will be despised by most everyone else.

Washington DC is having a very bad decade. This year’s election is just part of a larger pattern that has big ramifications for the dollar and therefore precious metals; the devolution of confidence in our federal institutions.

Truthbomb from Rasmussen…

More Americans Want Hillary Indicted Than Elected

By Dean Garrison – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

According to WikiPediaRasmussen Reports is an American polling company, founded in 2003.[2] The company engages in the collection, publication, and distribution of public opinion polling information. Rasmussen Reports conducts nightly tracking, at national and state levels, of elections, politics, current events, consumer confidence, business topics, and the president’s job approval ratings.

It may also be one of the few remaining semi-honest polling companies in America.

On October 18th and 19th Rasmussen conducted a poll regarding the controversial decision by the FBI to press no charges against Hillary Clinton… despite her obvious disregard for the law and national security, by using her own private email server to conduct state business.

The results will shock few of you, but it might shock some of the useful idiots… IF we could ever get this information into their hands AND get them to comprehend the significance. That’s a very tall order. Good luck on that.

With that said, this summary of the Rasmussen poll, gives Americans more truth than any of those proven fake CNN or Reuters polls:

Over half of American voters surveyed in a recent poll disagree with the FBI’s decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her emails scandal.

Preparing For Post-Election Social Unrest

By Mike Gleason – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The 2016 election year is bringing out the worst among some elements of society. From vandalism to physical assaults to large scale race riots to terrorist bombings and mall stabbings, social disorder has become a more prominent feature of life in a polarized America.

It’s easy (and politically convenient) for the establishment media to blame Donald Trump for inflaming the political divide. In reality, Trump supporters have far more often been the victims rather than the instigators of political violence.

Moreover, the forces driving social unrest have been building for years. And they are being encouraged and funded by far-left organizations.

The riotous “Black Lives Matter” movement has received more than $100 million from leftist foundations including billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Institute.

Wikileaks Shut Down by Hillary & Obama!

By James Shale – Re-Blogged From http://ipatriot.com

In an attempt to silence the daily stream of email leaks from the Hillary Clinton campaign, a “state party” has severed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s internet connection and ability to continue revealing the inner workings of the Democratic nominee’s run for the Presidency. As reported both on Twitter by Wikileaks itself and in numerous news outlets, Wikileaks has responded by activating “contingency plans” although at present those plans don’t seem to include continuing the daily email leaks of the last two weeks.

Ironically, by targeting Assange, Obama and Hillary have unintentionally confirmed the authenticity of the Wikileaks revelations leaving no doubt that the content found in the nearly 12,000 emails leaked to-date is entirely accurate and threatening to the Hillary campaign. Why shut down the would-be freedom fighter if the emails were the works of “Russians” as repeated so often by the Clinton camp?

Statistical Shenanigans at BLS

cropped-bob-shapiro.jpg   By Bob Shapiro

Non-farm private payrolls for July came in with a surprise 43,000 larger increase than expected. Including new government jobs, the number reported was 75,000 larger than expected.

But, can we really believe the numbers?

This is a Presidential election year, and it turns out that the numbers influence the election results. Good numbers – and a rising stock market – presage a continuation of the party in power, while bad numbers – and a falling market – seem to forecast a turnover to the opposite party.

There seems to be enough motive to fudge the numbers. But, how do you fudge the non-farm payrolls number? People either are working or they’re not working.

One way is through the so-called Birth-Death Model. As the bean counters collect their data, they don’t actually count every single person and business in the country. Instead, they survey a sample – in statistics, a survey of a thousand can come surprisingly close to the results you would get if you counted the whole population.

From the results they get using just the sample, they project what the whole economy is. But the US Economy changes constantly. People leave jobs, and others get jobs. Businesses go out of business, while others start up.

To account for the changing landscape of US businesses, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses its Birth Death Model – they pick a number out of thin air, hoping the number is close – or at least believable. Here are the numbers for the last year or so:

Birth Death 080816

Since April 2015, only three times has the BLS said the Birth-Death Model called for a reduction of the official number, for a total of 280,000 jobs. Against that, there were 13 months of upward adjustments (guesses) for a total of 1,839,000 extra jobs, over and above what their actual survey results said there should be.

If we remove the Birth-Death adjustment for July, instead of beating the estimate by 75,000, it would have fallen short by 37,000. In my book, the numbers are bogus – politically motivated.

After all the hard work of collecting the actual data that the rank and file BLS (and other agency) employees do, their bosses make them look like criminals because of all the phonying up that the bosses do.

It likely will not happen ever, but I can dream that someday a new President will have the good sense to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of fraud at the BLS.
