Still some weeks to go to year end before we can conclude this was a good or bad year for the Market under Trump.
But you'll continue with your daily DJI-report anyway, right?

Or maybe they're as lazy as the rich people they're protecting, and couldn't be bothered moving the looters to a Designated Shooting Location?

You know Trump has not mentioned "the caravan" since election day. He was just trying generate fear in voters too stupid to work out the caravan was 1,000 miles away from the US and was really no threat. Turned out to be a successful tactic!

Trump keeps claiming that the delays in counting votes in Arizona and Florida are evidence of fraud without any evidence but there are delays in counting in many areas of the US; it is business as usual, not fraud!

funny how some u.s fake news have zipped through to the mexican population. we had some confrontations between residents of my area and the migrants.



Like the rest of the world; mexico will just deal with it.




the world is hopeless. nothing matters and everyone dies.

Surely something harmless

Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that the US will not require North Korea to provide a full list of its nuclear and missile sites before President Donald Trump meets with dictator Kim Jong Un for a second summit slated for early next year.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It's funny that Trump was pampered by interview shows and Hollywood in general when he was the presenter of The Apprentice. Any doubt that nowadays it would be completely different if he had run for the presidency as a Democrat?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A federal district judge on Friday ordered the Trump administration to reinstate press credentials for Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed to the bench by President Trump, granted CNN’s request to restore the press pass for Acosta, giving him regular access to the White House grounds to cover events and press conferences.

Source

Judge Kelly pressed the government on the accuracy of Sanders's assertion that Acosta had placed his hands on the intern.
“You have no position on the accuracy of that statement?” he asked.

Presumably Trump will send injured tweets like "I appointed this judge!"!

I doubt the Government will appeal the decision as the odds are against winning.

Difficult to call - there's no way Trump could have run as a Democrat with his current political stances and policies.

That seems unlikely, he overstepped a few too many times, including some that didn't occur during his campaign.

It's deeply ironic though that Piers the hypocryte does exactly what he criticizes others for. Swift doesn't mention Trump even once, and her Instagram post endorsing the two Dems couldn't have been more calm. What's more, she was repeatedly asked about her political opinions but didn't say anything until that post.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/16/b...sta-trump.html
And now more Trump rhetoric!
Quote:
President Trump brushed off a federal judge’s Friday ruling that the White House must reinstate press credentials for Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.

The president also said during an interview set to air on "Fox News Sunday" that if Acosta "misbehaves" at a future press conference the White House could "throw him out."
Source

But he did not say they would appeal the ruling?

Where is the bottom with this guy? and I don't mean the one stuffed into oversize golfing trousers. C'mon Spanky fans, it's been a fun ride but you have to be reaching the limit of what you can excuse.

US troops on Southern US border doing a good job, not!
Sent to do a job they are neither trained nor equipped to do.

Long read and photos in Time magazine here about 104th Engineer Construction Company sent to weld coils of razor wire atop the city’s 20-ft.-tall border fence with Mexico when only eight of 130 troops knew how to weld.
The rest have a comfortable time watching the 8 welders work!

The heavy gear will ruin the roads which already look pretty fecked. If the taxpayers in that town will have to pay for restoring them - how many voters will Trump lose in the area?

I suppose this article was not meant to be funny? I couldn't stop laughing while reading it.

The Americans, the new "Schildbürger". (The Schildbürger, living in the fictive town Schilda - first book published 1597. Still a well known "populace" in this area )
If I were in the film industry I would already be working on the skript for a hilarious soap-series about the Trump times.
