New Home Sales Soar Most Since 2007 Driven By Southern Sales Surge 

  • the Census reported that in July the US saw a whopping 654K new home sales, up 12.4%, from the prior month and higher by 31% from a year ago, smashing expectations of a 580K print,

  • What was most notable about the series is that while there was no sequential change in houses sold in the West, which were flat at 137K in July, the south posted a massive 18.1% jump in the month, up 40% from a year ago,


Richmond Fed Manufacturing Survey Collapses By Most On Record 

  •  Richmond Fed’s manufacturing survey plunges to -11 (lowest since Jan 2013) missing expectations of +6.The plunge from July’s +10 to August’s -11 is the largest on record – back to 1993.
  • Biggest drop on record…


US Manufacturing Flashes “Warning Light” As New Orders, Employment Tumble 

  • Following the eurozone’s disappointing drift lower in Manufacturing PMI (and weakness in German Services), August’s US preliminary manufacturing PMI printed a disasppointing 52.1 (against expectations of 52.6). Weakness in Employment (lowest in 4 months) and New Orders underpin the drop from 52.9 to 52.1 as the 2 month hope-fueled bounce has faded…
  • Renaissance over…


CLSA: “The Bank Of Japan Has Nationalized The Japanese Stock Market”

  •  the BOJ that it would double its ETF purchases to ¥6 trillion, or $58 billion, up from the current ¥3.3 trillion, which is the equivalent to the Fed purchasing $580 billion in ETFs


  • BOJ is nationalizing the stock marketbecause that is precisely what it is doing with every incremental intervention in the stock market.
  • ,the Japanese market’s performance would become increasingly a function of liquidity in the central bank’s buying basket.  l, the BOJ’s purchases have an even stronger tendency to distort the market than the central bank’s ETF purchases, Deutsche Bank said.
  •  “Bank of Japan’s near doubling of its purchases of Tokyo shares is causing investors to worry the central bank will dominate financial markets, which could lead to price distortions as it continues to grease the economy.” the market is driven completely by the BOJ’s buying rather than views on each companies’ earnings,”


Private Placement: European Companies Issue Debt Simply Because the ECB will Buy That Debt

Debt Seller’s Paradise

  •  the ECB is buying private placement debt with little regard for safety. In turn, private equity companies issue debt simply because they know in advance the ECB will buy it.
  • It’s a startling example of how the market is adapting to extremes of monetary policy, and it’s a safe conclusion the experiment will not end well.
  • The ECB only announces what it will buy, not how much of it. Yet, that has spawned a guessing game driving yields lower and lower.
  • As soon as the ECB does buy an issue, the interest rate on those bonds collapse. And now we see private placement of debt, specifically designed with the ECB in mind.
  • QE is supposed to spur lending and investment. In practice, it’s killing pension plans while fostering bond bubbles.


“It’s Gone” – Why Foreign Demand For US Treasuries Has Disappeared

  • Last week’s TIC data confirmed something the Fed’s Treasury custody account has indicated for the past several months: foreign demand for US government bonds has not only tumbled, but there has been aggressive selling.



  •  in the past 12 months foreign central banks have sold a gargantuan $335 billion in US Treasuries (and $242 billion when looking at all foreign transactions including private).


Proof Positive the “Recovery” is a Myth

  • Receipts from the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) have been falling steadily since 2012,according to the Office of Management and Budget, moving counter to the growing number of people employed. The FUTA tax is levied at 6 percent on the first $7,000 of an employee’s wage
  • . Since 2012, unemployment tax receipts have been FALLING. If the US economy was indeed creating jobs, this number should be rising.
  • Why is this number falling… particularly when the unemployment number is supposedly below 5% and job growth is great?
  • . The BLS numbers are either wrong or the quality of new jobs created must be very poor. The latter response seems the most credible; a combination of an increase in the proportion

France, Germany Push for Limits on Encrypted Messaging in Fight Against Terror

  • French Interior Minister has met with his German counterpart  Tuesday (August 23) to unveil a plan to limit the use of encrypted messaging to combat terrorism, 
  • france and germany called for social media operators running encrypted services to cooperate with security services and the police into criminal investigations.

China has launched it’s 11th CARRIER KILLER DESTROYER,

Type 052 class elite Guided Missel Destroyer 

Equipped with the YJ-18 Long Range

Supersonic ANTI-SHIP Missile.

The YJ-18 missile can cruise at about 600 miles an hour, or just under the speed of sound, only a few meters above the surface of the sea and then, about 20 nautical miles from its target, accelerate to as much as three times the speed of sound, according to an Oct. 28 report from the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

“The supersonic speed makes it harder to hit with on-board guns,” according to Larry Wortzel, a member of the commission. “It also makes it a faster target for radars.”

‘Serious Implications’

The YJ-18’s speed and long range, as well as its wide deployment “could have serious implications for the ability of U.S. Navy surface ships to operate freely in the Western Pacific” in the event of a conflict, the commission found.

“The Clinton Crime Family Foundation” IS OUR CURRENT SHADOW GOVERNMENT … I … HOPE … I’m …Wrong ….

For reasonably minded, ordinary Americans on either side, these ‘Scenarios’, stated in the article below, are ‘feasible’ events, given a Hillary Win, or Steal.

For the likes of these Monsters involved, however, nothing is off the table.

Nothing. They’d blow the Earth into Five Easy Pieces, in some cases before they let their ability to Rule AND INFLICT PAIN on their victims slip away.

The Bomb. The Grid. The War.

They have to have some distraction from the Economy caving in.

The US is provoking War with China and Russia, but they won’t shoot first.

“We’ll” have to provide our own 911 x 1,000.

Things are going to be Un-Hinged.

Muslims don’t like us at all and they are here.

The Feds have taken over 20 something Police Departments in major Cities.

Military Armaments and Equipment, including thousands of Tanks are stationed all over the U.S. Many already marked, “U.N.”

The 86 Plan called for Hillary as President, to make Billary Ambassador to the U.N. and then have the ones who are ready to have their Favors Paid back, for Contributing to the Clinton Foundation, vote Billary to Secretary General of The U.N.

Justice Scalia isn’t the only one that is “out of the way”, for No 2nd Amendment AND Shariah Law.

Let me put it this way: “The Clinton Crime Family Foundation” IS OUR CURRENT SHADOW GOVERNMENT and soon to be that of The World.

Trump could get handed The Presidency before Midnight; and what’s he going to do ? He’s a decent man in a Shark Tank. … I …HOPE..I’m…Wrong….

( These Scenarios sound a lot like,

“If you LIKE OBAMA, then don’t worry;

Just VOTE for Hillary AND IT’LL BE ALRIGHT”.)

Here’s the otherwise far reaching, but ‘feasible’ bright ideas. ( Again, they sound more like a typically twisted con job on the same ones they got to vote Obama in).

Posted on Facebook: “Jeff Kokoszka made this comment on a post. I found it very interesting. I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service. The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he told me his theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government.

At first I thought it a bit far fetched. But as I listened to him it began to make sense, scary sense…
“I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November,” Pete began.

“Then, sometime between November and January, Hillary will be indicted. The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn’t over yet.”

“Once under indictment she won’t be able to assume the Office of the President in January. Tim Kaine, who will not actually be the Vice President because neither he nor Hillary have been inaugurated, cannot assume the Presidency.”

“The Speaker of the House can’t move up to it because there is already a sitting President and Vice President. So President Obama, in an Executive Order citing “emergency situation,” gives himself another four years in office is the only way possible.”

Pete believes Obama has been planning this for a while now, knowing he has enough on Hillary to indict her. Had the Attorney General indicted her based on evidence from the FBI this plan wouldn’t have worked because the DNC would have quickly come up with another candidate

If you think about it, it’s not that outrageous. Many people on the left, including the President, want Obama to stay another four years. The law prohibits him from being re-elected so the only ways he can do it is by declaring martial law and suspending the election (which would be a very negative thing for the country) or to declare himself still President because the elected candidate cannot assume her duties.

The latter makes more sense and is actually more feasible. And since it’s never been done before, it would set a precedent that would be difficult to challenge.

Of course, if Trump wins the election none of this is going to happen. But what if Pete is correct? Four more years of Obama and a mostly useless Republican House and Senate would give Obama the time he needs to continue destroying changing the country to fit his stated goals.

New World Order’s Secret Philosophy Revealed

An American soldier who gave his life in World War II came home to an INPROPTU PERFORMANCE of a choir singing, “Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!” Hero’s Welcome

An American soldier who gave his life on a World War II battlefield has come home to a hero’s welcome more than 70 years later.

At the end of a Delta Air Lines flight from Frankfurt, Germany, to Atlanta on July 18, the pilot informed the passengers that a U.S. Army private would be escorting the remains of a World War II soldier off the plane before everyone could disembark.

As the soldier’s remains were transported, members of the Iowa Ambassadors of Music choir spontaneously sang a beautiful rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” in his honor.

The moving performance of the choir singing, “Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!” was captured on video by fellow passenger Diane Cupp, 62, from Johnson City, Tennessee, who posted it on Facebook.

“It was so emotional,” Cupp told ‘Today‘. “I was just so proud of the young people who started singing and the respect that they showed. My heart just melted.”
