Political upheaval may trigger the crash.
"I have no idea how this will play out, but as a youthful witness to history back in 1973-1974 I observed Tricky Dick’s demise in daily slow motion. But the most memorable part of the saga was how incredibly invincible Nixon seemed in early 1973.Current Prices on popular forms of Gold BullionNixon started his second term, in fact, with a massive electoral landslide, strong public opinion polls and a completely functioning government and cabinet.
Even more importantly, he was still basking in the afterglow of his smashing 1972 foreign policy successes in negotiating detente and the anti-ballistic missile (ABM) treaty with Brezhnev and then the historic opening to China on his Beijing trip.
So I’ll take the unders from anyone who gives the Donald even the 19 months that Nixon survived.
After all, Trump lost the popular vote, is loathed by official Washington, barely has a functioning cabinet and is a whirling dervish of disorder, indiscipline and unpredictability."
True.
"To use a storm metaphor, I have never been in the eye of a hurricane. But I do reside only a few blocks from Wall Street. And I can feel the financial barometric pressure plummeting by the hour.In fact, others than the five FAANG stocks (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Goggle), the market has been silently collapsing since March 1st.
That’s right. During the last 70 days, the FAANGS have gained $260 billion in value, while the other 495 companies in the S&P 500 have lost an identical amount. And on that utterly unmistakable pattern history is absolutely clear."
The bust is happening now.

Misc

Knee-jerk blaming of Windows XP for the WannaCry ransonware attack were unfounded as 98 percent of computers affected ran Windows 7. Blame NSA and Microsoft.

Now that cars are being hacked, somebody thought of anti-virus for cars. General purpose computers connected to the internet in cars are stupid.

Health Care

The crisis of antibiotic resistance has been understood for decades, but because government controls health care, nothing is being done.

Environment

Arctic doomsday seed vault flooded from poor design. This would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

Soros hires former FEC chief who pushed to silence Drudge.

Hillary's top aide Huma files for divorce after her husband Weiner pleads guilty to sexting a minor. As if she didn't know.

UK PM proposes socialist internet and highly regulating internet. It'll become even more of a slum than the already government-controlled internet.

The establishment hated Nixon like Trump, but this doesn't explain why.

Media

Suddenly MSNBC is beating Fox News in ratings, but I wonder if that's because MSNBC has soared or Fox News has fallen. God knows I can't stand to watch the fake news. Only a lefty could stand to watch that farce.

Sweden drops charges against Assange. Ecuador asks UK to give him safe passage. This is probably a ploy to assassinate him.

Police State

I doubt it's coincidence police are stocking up on riot gear because leftists are preparing to riot just as the bubble is about to pop.

FBI is not probing murder of DNC staffer who was the source of DNC emails given to Wikileaks.

Foreign Policy

Fake North Korean crisis.
"The “Iranian threat” was an orchestration that was used as cover to put US anti-ballistic missile bases on Russia’s borders. An anti-ballistic missile (ABM) is intended to intercept and destroy nuclear-armed ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) and prevent them from reaching their targets.
Washington claimed that the anti-ABM bases were not directed at Russia, but were for the protection of Europe against Iran’s nuclear ICBMs. Insouciant Americans might have believed this, but the Russians surely did not as Iran has neither ICBMs nor nuclear weapons. The Russian government has made it clear that Russia understands the US bases are directed at preventing a Russian retaliation against a Washington first strike.
The Chinese government also is not stupid. The Chinese leadership understands that the reason for the N. Korean “crisis” is to provide cover for Washington to put anti-ballistic missile sites near China’s border.
In other words, Washington is creating a shield against nuclear retaliation from both Russia and China from a US nuclear strike against both countries."
Makes sense.

Economy

Signs the auto bubble is beginning to pop.
"So while carriers are hauling, consumers making car payments are stalling. Benjamin A. Smith writes for the Lombardi Letter,  “over one million Americans are overdue on their auto loan payments. Coupled with the fact that U.S. auto loan debt is at a record high of $1.16 trillion and delinquency rates are at their highest levels since 2009 (the Great Recession).”"
Uh-oh. Layoffs at Ford.

Police State

The lawless NSA cannot be reformed.

Tax and Spend

The full story about the trade deficit.
"Let’s put trade deficits into historical perspective. If trade deficits were something for a president to fret about, every U.S. president from 1790 to today ought to have been fretting. For most of our history, we have had current account deficits (http://tinyurl.com/jczqrhu). I should say every president except Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose administrations ushered in the Great Depression. Nine out of the 10 years of the economic downturn of the 1930s, our nation had a current account trade surplus. Should we reproduce the economic policies of that era and re-create the “wonderful” trade surplus?"
No.

IRS policy is to continue collecting taxes even during nuclear war.
