Senate Republicans Mutiny, Deliver Devastating Rebuke to Lawless Trump

The U.S. Senate voted today to block President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration at the United States-Mexico border. Following a weeks-long government shutdown and stalemate with House Democrats over funding to reinforce barriers on the southern border, Donald Trump invoked the Nixon-era National Emergencies Act of 1976. Under the old law, Trump claimed the power to direct funding to barrier construction at his own discretion without a line item in a legislative appropriation.

Donald Trump’s $4.75 Trillion Budget Should Terrify Fiscal Hawks

Here we go again. Donald Trump’s new $4.75 trillion budget proposal is wild even by his lofty standards. We shouldn’t be surprised, as overspending has been the hallmark of the president’s professional business career, but you are forgiven for thinking he might take a different approach to his handling of the United States’ finances. The proposal, which will make the shrinking number of fiscal hawks on either side of the aisle shudder, is evident in its intent. Trump is going all out to make sure that he has the cash…

Trump Made the Defining Move of His Presidency

Pangburn, Arkansas is the quintessential slow-paced, idyllic American small town where everyone knows everyone else, and no one is in much of a hurry. Like the vast majority of rural America, the town of 600 voted for Donald Trump in 2016 after he made a successful appeal to their identity as the American “heartland,” and the president may be about to pay them back in spectacular fashion – even if no one seems to know it yet.

It’s all a hoax.” Democrats Lay the Groundwork to Impeach President Trump Rep.

Wall Street Trading Bots Fail as Fed Flip-Flops and Trump Tweets

The party may be over for automated trend-following trading strategies on Wall Street. As a recent report by Bloomberg highlights, the once legendarily profitable investment systems run on computers by hedge fund managers have lost their edge. Although still dominating a large share of capital compared to human traders, the machines are not as invulnerable as they once were. Wild volatility in the Dow Jones and other major US stock market indices makes that abundantly clear. Smooth economic cycles are one thing, but unnatural monetary policy from the Federal Reserve…

US-China Trade Optimism Fuels $1 Trillion Chinese Stock Rally

Following a period of economic turmoil caused by trade friction between the U.S. and China, Chinese markets are experiencing an extraordinary recovery driven by indications that Donald Trump may be softening his hard line in trade negotiations between the world’s two largest economies. After Trump announced that he would postpone the March 1 deadline for Chinese import tariff hikes, the CSI 300 Index recorded a 6 percent surge last Monday. The Shanghai Composite Index also recorded its best day since June 2015, after it closed with a 5.6 percent gain….
