  1. Okay first things first, you can’t time the market. That said, I’m really feeling a strong urge to get out. Stock values are wildly overinflated and now we’ve got the Fed cutting, yes CUTTING, rates. WTF? I thought the economy was good? Why are we cutting rates then? That’s what you do when things are bad. And, relatedly, how are we going to cut rates when things are bad, when we’ve already cut them to the bone? Don't like where this is heading at all. I see a huge bust on the horizon and wonder if it’s time to get into cash. Also, shed debt. If I was really smart and dedicated, I think I’d sell my house at these wildly inflated prices, pay off all my debt, and rent whilst sitting on a pile of cash. Anyway, thoughts from the investment geeks?

    Brexit

    Early returns say they're leaving but it's very close. Guess I should've gotten out of the market.

    Lesser known horror films

    What’re you’re favorites? One I saw recently and enjoyed was called They Look Like People. I don’t want to spoil it but thought it came together very well in the end. Lotta good Indie-type horror movies out there on the streaming services but you have to know what you’re looking for.

    Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020

    You guys are nuts. Look it’s either no big deal, in which case there’s nothing to hide. Or it is a big deal in which case that’s why they’re hiding stuff. I’m pretty sure you all know it’s the latter but you just don’t care. He’s your guy and so what if he tried to extort a foreign government into announcing investigations into his domestic political opponent. At least be focking honest about it

    Sony Michel sucks. Didn’t the Patriots draft some other running back? Whatever happened to that guy. I hardly care if the Pats win or lose. They’ll just get slaughtered next week anyway

    Official President Trump Impeachment Inquiry Thread

    (CNN)The praise or condemnation President Donald Trump is drawing for the latest US actions in the Middle East in no way diminishes the power of the legal bombshell that just exploded in the United States with new evidence of his behavior regarding Ukraine. Newly revealed documents paint an incriminating picture, showing administration officials anxiously struggling to follow orders from Trump himself despite concerns that the order could go against the national security interests of the United States and warnings from the Pentagon that it could be illegal. The emails are the portrait of a corrupt policy and an effort to conceal it -- a tug of war between two sets of government officials, one side trying to protect American security and follow the law, another working to enforce direct orders of the President of the United States. The documents, obtained through the work of the Center for Public Integrity and later, in their unredacted versions, revealed by the online legal forum Just Security, show that administration officials knew Trump was ordering them to do something possibly illegal. Just hours after Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky -- the one Trump absurdly calls "perfect" during which he requested a "favor" from Ukraine -- Michael Duffey, at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), emailed the Pentagon to put a hold on aid to Ukraine and said to keep the decision secret "given the sensitive nature of the request." Over the succeeding weeks, OMB and the Pentagon discussed the decision. Pentagon lawyers and others appeared to grow increasingly anxious. Duffey later writes, "Clear direction from POTUS to hold," again making it clear this was the President's doing. On July 26, the "Ukraine Deputies Small Group" met. The National Security Council's top Ukraine experts -- Trump's own team -- declared "unanimous support" for restarting military funding as Russia's allies continued their assault on eastern Ukraine. As the clock ticked toward a disbursement deadline, aides increasingly raised the legality of the issue. And rightly so. The decision didn't just run against national security, it violated the law. Under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA), the administration is obligated to spend the money as directed by Congress. If it doesn't, it is required to inform Congress that it is doing so and why. In a draft letter by the Pentagon to the OMB, top Defense Department officials noted, "We have repeatedly advised OMB officials" that the suspension of aid jeopardizes "the Department's ability" to comply with the ICA. With the deadline for compliance nearing, the infighting and finger pointing intensified. Elaine McCusker, the Pentagon's acting controller, asked Eric Chewning, the chief of staff of Defense Secretary Mike Esper, "Do you believe DOD is adequately protected from what may happen?"

    Okay but it won’t work, right? So why hide stuff?

    But how would they use them for anything? You all just agreed it still wouldn’t result in impeachment.

    So then why hide it? The worst possibility, according to you, amounts to basically nothing.

    If it’s just a “red herring” then what does Trump have to hide?

    Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration disclosed on Friday that there were 20 emails between a top aide to President Trump’s acting chief of staff and a colleague at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget discussing the freeze of a congressionally mandated military aid package for Ukraine. But in response to a court order that it swiftly process those pages in response to a Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, lawsuit filed by The New York Times, the Office of Management and Budget delivered a terse letter saying it would not turn over any of the 40 pages of emails — not even with redactions. “All 20 documents are being withheld in full,” wrote Dionne Hardy, the office’s Freedom of Information Act officer. The Times’s information act request sought email messages between Robert Blair, a top aide to Mr. Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, and Michael Duffey, an official in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget who was in charge of handling the process for releasing $391 million in weapons and security assistance Congress had appropriated to help Ukraine resist Russian aggression.
