Obama spokesman: Trump ´owns´ Wall
Street´s collapse for bragging on its rise

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/6/2018 12:56:05 PM

As Wall Street tumbled into an historically bad day today, former President Obama’s one-time spokesman suggested that President Trump will “own the fall” because has bragged about the huge increase, something the aide said Obama never did. (Snip) But in fact Obama never shut up about how the market had recovered under his watch. On Twitter, former spokesman Jay Carney, now an Amazon vice president, said Obama was cautious. “Good time to recall that in the previous administration, we NEVER boasted about the stock market — even though the Dow more than doubled on Obama´s watch — because we knew two

Comments:
Ah yes, that pathetic hack Jay Carney rears his ugly head. I really am so sick of the constant blatant lies by the Democrats. Obama did in fact brag about the stock market. In the links below he bragged about saving it. All he did was pat himself on the back for all the allegedly wonderful things he did like Dodd Frank, ´rescuing GM, etc. when we know his policies and regulations really hurt this country and his ´successes´ were pure fiction. Bedard does a great job of illustrating that.

Contd. Don´t forget this is the same Jay Carney who has Russian propaganda posters hanging in his kitchen. Link below. In that link it states that he and his wife, Claire Shipman, met in Moscow in the 1990´s while he was working for Time and she worked for CNN. Why didn´t the FBI investigate him for alleged Russian collusion?

As J.P. Morgan said when asked for a stock market prediction; "The Stock Market will fluctuate." Always has. Always will. A sell off is a buying opportunity, not a market collapse. The economic engine is running full steam and the job growth is real. And Trump can still brag about that.

Yup he asked for a bit of this. But there´s a reason people grew confident perhaps over confident, the days of punishing business for having the audacity to do business in the US were over. A sell off was inevitable. Thought of holding my 401K gains myself.

Would never be a surprise if it turns out some big-money anti-Trump interests triggered the selloff to make him look bad.

Amazing how much the Obama gang persists in criticizing Trump. They appear to be very active even though their time is over. If there is a coup going on, they are hip deep in it.

Carney said the Obama gang never boasted about the stock market. That´s because it was under performing while Obama was in office.

First, why does Obama need a spokesman? Nobody cares about what he has to say.

Second, the fact that Democrats are jumping ugly on the stock market dive tells me to be wary about the cause of the dive. It is possible that a few well-placed players can cause such a thing to happen. Wasn’t it Soros who played around with crashing International currencies?

O´Diddler is correct, our wonderful President is leading an economic sunrise. Black clouds are parting everywhere.

Wall Street has corrections all the time. On the whole, every financial indicator is on the rise.

Carney and Stinky´s economy never recovered. They had to change the monitored Economic parameters and Gerry Rigged the index every time they needed a marginal growth rate of 1 - 2%.

President Trump does not control the stock market. The stock market would not be a market if it did not go up and go down.

Trump should use the Reagan tactic when asked about the market, just shrug and say “the market goes up, and the market goes down” as he walks away.

Secret FBI source for Russia investigation met
with three Trump advisers during campaign
Washington Post, by Robert Costa*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/18/2018 10:15:04     Post Reply
In mid-July 2016, a retired American professor approached an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university. The professor took the opportunity to strike up a conversation with Carter Page, whom Trump had named a few months earlier as a foreign policy adviser. But the professor was more than an academic interested in American politics — he was a longtime U.S. intelligence source. And, at some point in 2016, he began working as a secret informant for the FBI as it investigated Russia’s interference in the campaign, according to people familiar

U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials have leaked extremely sensitive information about a top secret source three times in the last week while claiming that confidentially sharing information about the source with congressional investigators could greatly impact U.S. national security and potentially risk the source’s life. The officials have leaked specific information that could directly identify the source on three separate occasions to reporters at the Washington Post and New York Times. This raises even more questions about whether current top intelligence and law enforcement officials can be trusted to obey the law and to

"It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, where he provided a potentially explosive hint at what’s driving his demand to see documents related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Trump-Russia probe. “If the campaign was somehow set up,” he told the hosts, “I think that would be a problem.” Or an understatement. Mr. Nunes is still getting stiff-armed by the Justice Department over his subpoena, but this week his efforts did force the stunning admission that the FBI had indeed spied on the Trump campaign.

If you’re a fading Baby Boomer, you’re faintly amused that the FBI code-named its Trump-Russia investigation “Crossfire Hurricane.” It’s an homage to the Rolling Stones golden oldie “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” — which, come to think of it, might just be a perfect handle for John Brennan, the former Obama CIA director whose specter hovers over each critical juncture of the case. The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, says that special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to avoid a “fishing” expedition by narrowing the subject of questions in an effort to get the president to submit to an interview with the prosecutor. Mr. Giuliani also says he thinks fired FBI Director James Comey is “not going to be worth anything as a witness” and thus less a threat to the president.

This past weekend we reported that Internet sleuths determined who the Obama FBI spy was in the Trump campaign. Now we know he was a classmate of Bill Clinton’s and an advisor to the Clinton Administration! Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on last Thursday identified an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign). Carlson determined that George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals

Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

(Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Windsor, England - Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding — stepping in after the father of the bride fell ill just days before the ceremony. Kensington Palace said Friday that Markle´s future father-in-law, the heir to the British throne, would walk the American actress down the aisle at St. George´s Chapel in Windsor for her wedding to Prince Harry. The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way." (Tweet) The decision comes after feverish speculation about who would have the honor after the bride announced that her father,

Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax´s Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive. In March, President Trump considered adding diGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing
