ooo really bad you ended on that note after showing you don't know anything about Hassan Rouhani, he's not a dictator, he's a moderate and reformist who won the presidential election against populist candidates in the mold of Spanky. Rouhanis election was on the back of the Iranian anti-election fraud protests of 2009. (Sorry, that was history again).

He's a very popular guy and probably one of Iran's few chances to get out from under the boot of the 'Supreme Leader' and the Revolutionary Guard. Sadly Spanks is going to screw this up too by providing a perfect bogey man to rally the hardliners, I suspect Rouhani feels he has to stand up to Spanky or lose ground to the fundamentalists.
He's not talking about Rouhani.

The Stock Market hit 25,000 yesterday. Jobs are at an all time record - and that is before we fix some of the worst trade deals and conditions ever seen by any government. It is all happening!

11:46 AM - 14 Jul 2018
Stock Market dropped below 25,000 a couple of times today and then inched up again.

It will continue to be unstable while Trump sends incendiary tweets, Every time he hits Amazon their stock price drops and pulls down the whole market.

Would it be worth keeping an eye on that and buying?

Having US stock, does it complicate the taxes for a Swiss?

Completely different point. Yet more whataboutery.

Do you have any sources for your claim by the way? The most recent polls I could find were from Dec 2017 / Jan 2018, where 48% of people wanted the invite rescinded.

He's been a bit of a naughty boy since then though, so perhaps opinion has shifted even further against him.
Here you go.

Doesn't seem to, I just give my accountant dividend info for all stocks without separating them by locale, well worth it, the US kindly borrowed money to give to companies to give to me as dividends. Thanks Spanky.

Not really ideal data as the question changes half way through the timeline. So most people still oppose a state visit, but don't mind him coming to play golf and meet a few people, seems fair.

Any similar graph for the Emir?

In principle, a good idea but stock buying and selling is done by super computers in microseconds so it is hard to beat the market.

I read somewhere the average time interval between buying stock and selling the same stock is now less than 10 seconds.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Giuliani [Trump's lawyer]: Trump would agree to interview with Mueller if no questions on obstruction of justice.

Source

So is Trump somehow admitting obstruction of justice?

Meanwhile

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that the president is exploring the prospect of removing security clearances belonging to former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director Michael Hayden, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Source

Unbelievably petty!! He is a child?

Typically, former high-level officials and Cabinet members maintain their security clearance eligibility indefinitely because they are typically brought in for guidance and discussion after stepping down.

If I bought, I'd keep. Amazon wouldn't be bad to have.
I just meant buying when Trump made it drop.

Trump. Trying to deflect attention off Russia to Iran with his psychopathetic threats. He's getting out of the boiling pot into the fire!

Must admit I was amused by Iran's answer

Javad Zarif@JZarif

COLOR US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago. And Iranians have heard them —albeit more civilized ones—for 40 yrs. We’ve been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. BE CAUTIOUS!

Same reason you lock your front door even though a burglar once entered through the window.

Sure I lock the door, but I do not feel the need to surround my place with a 10 metre wall

In January, when Trump announced tariffs on imported washing machines, Whirlpool CEO Marc Bitzer told analysts, "This is, without any doubt, a positive catalyst for Whirlpool."

But now due to Trump tariffs on steel the prices in the United States are 60% higher than the rest of the world, Bitzer told analysts today.
He slashed profit outlook for 2018 and Whirlpool's (WHR) stock tanked 12%

Law of unintended consequences strikes again

Meanwhile it is rumoured Trump will start compensating bribing farmers in key GOP states who are suffering losses due to to his trade war with $12 billion!

China has announced a range of measures including tax cuts, infrastructure spending and new loans to business as its tries to reinvigorate economic growth, which has begun to slow in recent months probably due to trade war concerns.

I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election.
Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats.
They definitely don’t want Trump!

Seems like only last week Putin was saying he wanted Trump to win.
Oh wait a minute, it was last week!
