This Stock Will Begin Its Rally This Winter

Dear VQScore Member,

The arrival of winter is crucial for the newest top-rated stock in our VQScore system, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL).

Royal Caribbean makes most of its profits in the winter months, when the Caribbean rainy season ends and travel picks up considerably. Analysts expect it to earn $1.50 per share in the current quarter, a 12% increase from last year.

And there are three more catalysts that could send RCL shares at least 50% higher in 2019…

To start, the company announced a $1 billion share buyback program in May that will last until the middle of 2020. This tells me that management thinks the stock is attractive at these levels and should definitely put a floor under the stock around current prices.

Second, board chair and CEO Richard Fain just purchased $2 million worth of stock last Thursday, Dec. 13. It’s always great to see the CEO of the company increase his stake in the game, especially when more than half of his $13.2 million salary is awarded in stock options as well.

And RCL’s third catalyst may be its biggest of all… expansion.

Royal Caribbean is the world’s second largest cruise liner and operates more than 50 ships under its three fully owned brands. By 2024, it’s looking to add five more ships to its fleet.

RCL is adding one ship to its Asian fleet, where travel numbers are exploding. Cruises in China are expected to host 4.5 million passengers by 2020. That’s 60% growth from the 2.8 million passengers in 2017.

At the same time, one of RCL’s main competitors, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH), is sending its one Chinese ship back to North America permanently.

These four catalysts should conservatively send Royal Caribbean shares 50% higher to our $160 price target…

Sincerely,

Kyle Anderson

Bill Bonner’s Diary

The Fed Has the Shakes

By Bill Bonner, Chairman, Bonner & Partners

Bill Bonner

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Another big down day for the Dow. Yesterday, the index took another 2% hit… But, in keeping with our Advent Season optimism, if wealth is a burden, investors must have breathed a sigh of relief; they had $600 billion less of a burden at the end of the day than at the beginning of it.

And today, all eyes turn to the Fed. From a low of 6900 on the Dow in March 2009, to a high of 26650 on September 20, 2018, the geniuses at the Fed created this bubble. Now, they own it.

But what will they do with it? Will they take away even more of the burden of wealth with one final rate hike as a Christmas present?

Silicon Valley Insider Reveals His Shocking Tech Forecast for 2019

His previous forecasts have given early investors the chance at rare and exceptional gains as high as 200%… 1,011%… and more.

Get more details on his latest idea here

Economic Magic

Central banks have no economic magic. No financial panaceas. No money miracles. They can’t really make an economy run better.

They can’t raise real wages or increase the wealth of a society. They don’t produce anything of value. They don’t provide any service that you would willingly pay for.

All they can do is manipulate the amount of money and credit. That is, they can mislead people about how much credit is available… and at what cost.

For example, they can lower the price of credit by cutting rates… encourage people to borrow… and cause a credit boom on Wall Street. That increases the amount of money in the system. But every extra penny is borrowed, which also increases the amount of debt.

Alas, it has no way to increase the real output of Main Street… which is how debt is paid. Debt goes up much faster than income; that’s the story of the last 30 years.

And today, debt – which caused the crisis of 2008-2009 – is higher than ever. From student debt to corporate debt to government debt – it is all setting records. Bloomberg:

U.S. student loan debt outstanding reached a record $1.465 trillion last month and one particular set of borrowers is having a hard time paying back their loans, according to a Bloomberg analysis of student loan securitization data. This debt is raising fiscal risks.

“Over 90% of student loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Education, meaning that if a recession causes a rise in youth unemployment and triggers mass defaults, this contingent liability could prove burdensome for the U.S. government budget,” said Paul Della Guardia, economist at the Institute of International Finance…

Warning: Seniors in BIG Trouble

If you’re a senior planning to retire soon, here’s something you need to ask yourself…

What are you going to do when the Social Security trust fund runs out of money?

Most seniors will be screwed, but a few Americans have already figured out how to “game the system.”

Thanks to a little-known Social Security contract, they will get money deposited directly in their accounts… No matter what happens to Social Security. It’s all thanks to this money that comes from the private sector.

Click here to see how this is possible

Presidential Debt

And now the students and ex-students, businesses, households, and the government all depend on the Fed’s low interest rates. One famous person who depends on low rates is POTUS himself.

Mr. Trump is, after all, a leveraged real estate developer, as well as a politician and reality TV star. Bloomberg News reports that the president is already paying the price of higher rates:

President Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s interest-rate increases as a drag on U.S. economic growth. They’re also cutting into his own fortune.

Every time the Fed raises rates, Trump’s payments on some $340 million in variable-rate loans go up. Since his January 2017 inauguration, the Fed’s steady rate hikes may have added a cumulative $5.1 million a year to his debt service costs, according to a Bloomberg News analysis of the president’s financial disclosures and property records.

Two years ago, the Fed decided to stop making its Mistake #1 (keeping rates too low for too long) and switch to Mistake #2 (raising rates in anticipation of the next crisis… and thereby triggering the crisis). Then, at least, it would have some rates to cut when the crisis came… and it could then make Mistake #3 (cutting rates in a panic).

And that is the real question for today. There is no crisis, yet, so there are only two choices: Will the Fed stick with Mistake #2 or go back to Mistake #1?

If you’ve been following our Diary, you know that we’ve made an important prediction: The Fed will never voluntarily allow rates to return to normal.

It can’t let rates go back to normal because it has spent the last decade training the economy to live on abnormal ones. Now, like a patient on life support, the heart would stop beating if the Fed were to pull the plug.

Again, looking on the bright side, that is what should happen. The Fed created a debt-drenched monster; it should have the courage to bury it.

But that’s not going to happen. The Fed may not want to cave in to Mr. Trump’s demands. But it definitely doesn’t want to watch the Dow go down 1,000 points, either.

Bloomberg explains why another rate hike today is unlikely:

Donald Trump’s hectoring aside, it’s exceedingly rare the Federal Reserve raises interest rates when stocks are behaving this badly.

In fact, were policy makers to follow through with their widely expected hike Wednesday, it would be the first time since 1994 they tightened in this brutal a market. Right now, the S&P 500 is down over the last three, six and 12 months, a backdrop that has accompanied just two of 76 rate increases since 1980.

Rogue Governors ditch U.S. Dollar for “New Gold”

image

The “gold standard” may be coming back, but not in the way you think

Recently, several high-ranking officials and U.S. businessmen met to discuss a new “gold standard” – backed by 21st Century technology. Already, 142 U.S. cities have opened up to this radical idea. And Texas Governor Greg Abbott has moved part of his savings into a “prototype” for the “new gold standard.”

One man involved in the discussions reveals what he’s learned, along with a potentially explosive opportunity – the same kind of opportunity he used to bag a 14,354% winner.

The “New Gold Standard”
[FULL SCOOP]

Data Dependent

Most likely, rates will go nowhere today. Instead, the Fed will put the QT (quantitative tightening) program on pause, “to give it time to assess the incoming data.”

The announcement will sound reasonable. It will be greeted by Donald Trump and investors with considerable relief. The Dow should head up.

But the “data dependent” path is complete BS. It is like an alcoholic who gives up booze for “as long as his nerves don’t start acting up.” He’ll be back on the sauce within hours.

The Fed has practically fallen off the wagon already. It may or may not simply pause today. But now or later, stocks will continue to fall. And then, the Fed will pick up the bottle and go on another credit bender.

MARKET INSIGHT: WALL STREET IS SINGING BILL’S SONG

By Joe Withrow, Head of Research, Bonner & Partners

Joe Withrow

The S&P 500 just hit a 14-month low…

That’s the story of today’s chart, which tracks the S&P 500 from January 2017 through today.

Chart

As you can see, the S&P 500, often used as a barometer for “U.S. stocks,” has fallen 13% from its all-time high in September.

And with yesterday’s sell-off, the S&P is back to where it was in October 2017. In other words, 11 months’ worth of gains were wiped out in less than 90 days.

Bill has been sounding the alarm on stocks for years. As our editor has written many times, the Fed’s ultra-low rate policy allowed debt to accumulate to unprecedented levels. Now, with rates on the rise and government deficits expected to exceed $1 trillion in the years ahead, all this debt will be a long-term drag on growth and future earnings.

And in the face of falling stocks, Wall Street is starting to catch up.

Appearing on CNBC yesterday, Jeffrey Gundlach – founder and CEO of DoubleLine Capital – told viewers that he thinks stocks are in a long-term bear market. Here’s Gundlach:

I think it is a bear market. […]

I think this lasts a long time. It has a lot to do with the fact that, I believe, that we’re in a situation that is … highly unusual – that we’re increasing the budget deficit so spectacularly so late in the cycle while the Fed is hiking interest rates.

And Gundlach proceeded to explain why we are this situation:

The problem is that the Fed shouldn’t have kept them (rates) so low for so long. The problem is, we shouldn’t have had negative interest rates like we still have in Europe. We shouldn’t have had done quantitative easing, which is a circular financing scheme.

Sound familiar?

MAILBAG

Today, a mixed mailbag: Talk of Trump… congratulations on Bill’s newest grandchild… and what’s Bonner got against the state of Florida, anyway?

Good lord, Bill! Why don’t you just alarm the whole left side of the country because that’s all who will take your email to heart. You are an anti-Trump person, I get that, but global warming has NOT been proven. Too many folks have a way too short outlook on life and Mr. Trump is doing his very best to make America a place we can ALL be proud of. Mexico will indeed pay for that wall just with the reduced illicit drug trade. I WANT our borders secure and I cannot believe you do not. Even the other Democrats were… once upon a time. Everyone is so taken by the “promise” of socialism they are falling over one another to bring it here.

Hi Bill. Enjoy the arrival of your newest grandchild, we have our first and second on the way!

– Stephen B.

Bill, you were pretty harsh on Florida… broken down, on our last legs and all, young and vibrant, or waiting to die. Ouch. Don’t get all curmudgeon on us. We may be a sunny place full of shady people, but absent the terrain and the sun, so is everywhere else. Why do so many come here after they made their money? I’d love to answer that myself. Don’t retire, folks.

BREAKING: Mike Pence REPLACEMENT Announcement

Wow.

Read the details.

Ben Carson News
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators is in talks with President Donald Trump’s lawyers on submitting additional questions to the president, Axios is reporting.

Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Mueller’s office had raised the possibility of additional questions when the rules were discussed for the first round of written queries, telling Axios there was an agreement they could “come back and show us what they need.”

“We might agree or we might not,” Giuliani said. “They have the right to submit more questions to us. We have the right to say yes or no.”

Giuliani has insisted he will not permit investigators to have a direct interview with the president, telling “Fox News Sunday” that would happen “over my dead body.”

Donald Trump News
President Donald Trump early Tuesday both tweeted his support for his former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the face of his sentencing later in the day, and condemned special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and the loss of nearly 20,000 messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

In his Flynn tweet, the president wished Flynn “good luck today in court. Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion!”

Special: Top Cardiologist Reveals Secret for a Healthy Heart

Flynn’s sentencing hearing is to be held in Washington, D.C., where a judge will determine how much leniency he should get for his cooperation with federal authorities. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about interactions with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during Trump’s transition period. Mueller has recommended that Flynn not be sentenced to prison, citing his “substantial” cooperation with investigations.

In the president’s other tweet, posted shortly before his message on Flynn, Trump complained that the “biggest outrage” in Mueller’s “witch hunt” is “the fact that 19,000 demanded text messages between Peter Strzok and his FBI lover, Lisa Page, were purposely and illegally deleted. Would have explained whole hoax, which is now under protest!”

Surviving Obamacare
If you’re reading this, you’re a survivor. You managed to keep breathing through some of the worst plagues in human history. You ducked the bullets “gun violence” sprays like an epileptic hit man with an M134. You evaded “climate change.” The end of net neutrality didn’t get you. Even the 2017 tax cut couldn’t punch your ticket. Congratulations, you had a great run.

Unfortunately, this too shall pass. Your goose is cooked. Last Friday in Texas, U.S. District Court Judge Reed O’Connor ruled that the “individual mandate” is “essential to and inseverable from the remainder of the ACA (Obamacare),” but is also “impermissible under the Interstate Commerce Clause — meaning the Individual Mandate is unconstitutional.” Before you celebrate the courts actually getting one right for a change, you should probably get your affairs in order. According to the oracles of liberalism, Judge O’Connor just signed your death warrant.

 

Here’s a Special Message From Our Friends
Should the Federal government regulate and/or ban natural substances?

Vote now!

 

A U.S. District Court judge’s ruling has put the crosshairs on you and yours. An entire American political party is literally trying to kill you. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is probably skulking around your house right now, looking for a chance to take you out. And if the left is right, if “Cocaine Mitch” doesn’t put you in the ground, illness will. Without Obamacare, you’ll have all the cancer by next weekend.

According to once and future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D- Poop City, USA), “millions of Americans are living in fear” of what she called the “the monstrous endgame of Republicans’ all-out assault on people.” Better get in the bunker, my friends; the GOP is out for blood. Pelosi’s Californistan colleague, Senator Kamala Harris, sounded her own siren, “…tens of millions of millions of people’s health care is at risk.” Make room in that bunker; the GOP is going to whack your doctor, too. And the ever-entertaining Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Communist – Noo Yawk) took to Twitter to screech:

 

“It’s important to be honest about the fact that U.S. health care is terrible and lags far behind the modern world.

The good news: #MedicareForAll can save the U.S. $5.1 trillion over a decade while drastically cutting working-class Americans’ health spending.”


She didn’t mention that “Medicare for all” is liberal-speak for “government-controlled health care,” nor did she tip her hand as to where she’s hiding the cash it would require. Think the wait times are long now? Just wait until the Department of Health and Human Services handles the scheduling. And keep your fingers crossed that you can keep that doctor you like; recent history indicates that’s about as likely as you suddenly stumbling into a nifty windfall — $2,500 comes to mind. Forget about the bunker. Under Chiquita Khrushchev’s plan, you won’t be able to afford it.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has sworn revenge, parroting Pelosi’s “assault” talking point. He’s opening a courtroom front in the war to determine how big a cut Uncle Sam collects on each health care transaction. The relationship between patients and doctors will definitely be improved by the presence of more lawyers, am I right?

And yet, O’Connor’s ruling did not end imposition of former President Barack Obama’s big government protection racket. He ruled on the legal merits of the scheme, specifically relative to the hotly-contested individual mandate; he did not issue an injunction. But it did guarantee the incoming Democrat majority in the House of Representatives will burn plenty of time trying to shore it up, presuming they have any left over from trying to impeach President Donald Trump.

You may want to wait on swallowing that cyanide capsule, after all. Obamacare is, for all intents and purposes, still a thing. The GOP had dozens of chances to drive a stake through its heart over two years of Washington dominance and acted nothing like the vicious, legislative serial killers the Democrats keep warning you about. The same guys who have killed millions through their promotion of gun violence, refusal to accept climate change, belief in keeping the internet out of government hands whenever possible and even their brazen attempts to allow taxpayers to keep more of their money, couldn’t kill one lousy law. Despite the liberals sounding the air raid siren, it’s safe to guess that if they haven’t gotten you by now, I like your odds of making it.

Bill Bonner’s Diary

Good News About the Coming Crash

By Bill Bonner, Chairman, Bonner & Partners

Bill Bonner

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – The last leaves are falling from the trees. And the last days of December are counting down, like the quiet moments before an execution.

Friday, the Dow fell nearly another 500 points.

From Bloomberg:

Investors rushed out of U.S. equity funds in the second-biggest weekly exit on record, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch, as the market sell-off pushed traders to seek safe havens.

U.S. stock funds bled $27.6 billion in the days through Dec. 12, which includes last Friday’s plunge in the S&P 500 Index that capped the worst week for the gauge since March, according to BofA’s note, which cited EPFR Global data. This is the second-biggest redemption since February’s spike in the VIX volatility measure, according to Jefferies Financial Group Inc.

Doom-Monger

Is this one of those rare times when the doom-mongers’ predictions understate the approaching danger?

Troy, circa 1184 BC: “You’re just a nervous nelly, Cassandra; the horse is a nice parting gift. Bring it into the city.”

Rome, 475: “We’ve heard these warnings over and over… But the barbarians will never cross the Po River. Our legions will soon have them on the run.”

Russia, 1918: “Don’t worry about it, Vassily. It will all blow over soon. These hotheads will soon be history.”

New York, 1929: “What? This is a great market…”

Germany 1933: “The Reichstag fire was an accident, Benjamin. And who would support these lunkhead Nazis? Things will go back to normal.”

Washington, 2018: “Unemployment is down. GDP growth is up. We’ve had a tax cut. Inflation is low. What’s to worry about?”

We don’t know. But since it is the Christmas season, we look on the bright side.

America’s #1 Bank Tells You NOT to Do This… Then Does it Themselves

image

There’s a NEW investment the head of one of America’s leading banks recently told regular people to avoid…

But, at the same time, we estimate they helped move $37.8 million (in a single day) into it…

This situation is unfair, so we decided to do something about it.

These new investments are too profitable to miss out.

A small stake alone could have turned into $44,470

The Bright Side

If the stock market keeps sliding, a lot of problems will disappear (or at least get upstaged in the news ratings) – the trade war, the search for a chief of staff at the White House, the “shutdown”… Nancy Pelosi, Trump. Who will care about any of this when the Dow loses 10,000 points?

Besides, most of the leading new stories are just BS and claptrap. Phony wars. Fake “investigations.” Fake statistics. Most mean less than nothing.

After you learn about them, you know less that is honest and real than you did before.

But a serious bear market is real. Like a hurricane or a barbarian invasion, it gets people’s attention.

But keep looking on the bright side of it. Worried about inequality? Just let the correction do its work. The rich will be taken down a peg.

On Friday, for example, the selloff took stock prices down by more than 2%. Since the whole stock market is valued at about $30 trillion, a 2% drop shaves about $600 billion off balance sheets.

And that’s in addition to the 10% or so they were already down. Or about $3 trillion in all.

But hold on… there’s a long way to go.

By our estimate, the rich have gained about $30 trillion in total (from their investments in stocks, bonds, real estate, rare artwork, and collectibles) from the fake money system and the manipulation of interest rates by the Fed.

If the stock market gets cut in half (which we expect), that alone will take care of half the problem.

Mainstream Media Refusing to Report on “Trump Bonus Checks”?

The liberal news networks don’t want you to know about “Trump Bonus Checks”… Because it makes President Trump look good when American citizens are cashing monthly checks for $4,280, $6,344, and even an exceptional $8,181 per month!

Dumbbell Rich

Alas, it’s not just stock owners who take a beating. Stocks represent real companies. Companies have owners, bankers, suppliers, employees… and creditors. All of them lose.

For example, Corporate America owes a record $9 trillion, give or take – 50% more than it did 10 years ago. When stock prices go down, sales and profits go down, too.

Employees are laid off. Bonuses are reconsidered. Expansion plans are shelved. Purchases are rescinded. Business implodes.

And the weakest companies are unable to pay their debts.

Then, of course, the whole credit industry gets the shakes. The weaker lenders collapse immediately. Stronger ones call in their loans – putting further pressure on the wobbly companies.

But heck… it’s supposed to work that way.

Panics, credit crises, and bear markets – like maggots on dead flesh – clean up market economies.

And, still looking on the bright side, we personally will lose millions; but it will be worth it to see the dumbbell rich get what is coming to them.

Stay tuned…

MARKET INSIGHT: MORE PAIN AHEAD FOR STOCKS

By Joe Withrow, Head of Research, Bonner & Partners

As Bill reported above, the S&P 500 is down in Q4. The index has fallen 10.8% since the start of October. Our editor expects stocks to fall further. And if history is any guide, he’ll be right.

Today’s chart maps the fourth quarters in which the S&P 500 fell more than 10% going back to 1931. And it tracks the S&P’s follow-on performance during the first quarter of the following year.

Chart

As you can see, in the past, when stocks fell more than 10% during the fourth quarter, they usually continued falling during the first quarter of the next year as well… and often, by more than 10%.

The S&P 500 had losses of 10% or more in Q4 of 1931, 1932, 1937, 1941, 1973, 1987, and 2008. The following first quarters almost always showed more losses… averaging 11.4% for the quarter.

The exception was Q4 1987, when the S&P fell 23.2%, but followed up with a 4.8% gain during Q1 1988.

If history is any guide, this suggests Bill will be proven right in 2019. The S&P 500 needs to rally to close out the quarter with less than a 10% loss… or else we can expect stocks to fall further to start the new year.

MAILBAG

After Bill reported on what he told a group of D.C. insiders last week, dear readers offer their feedback…

“Beautiful words are not always truthful, and truthful words are not always beautiful.” I admire someone who has the balls to say it like it really is. The problem today is that truthful words are not beautiful, and so, they are sent to the forest, where no one is available to hear the sound of the trees falling.

Japan has a larger debt than the U.S! Every country, with some exceptions, is afraid to say: The emperor has no clothes! It would be a domino effect after that!

– Jim C.

What you are saying is absolutely correct. However, you continue to spout the same line over and over. Why not simply say the game is rigged? The elite will ultimately pull their chips out of the game ahead of the masses of useful idiots, only to come back after the ultimate debacle and buy up everything with their ill-gotten gains. That’s the nature of exploitative, dishonest capitalism. I believe you know that.

– Fredrick C.

Meanwhile, a collegial and spirited debate continues in the mailbag. After a dear reader shared his take on global warming, several readers responded in turn. Now, a counterpoint…

I read the responses to my mailbag entry about the causes of global warming with interest. I won’t bother to respond to or comment on those who took issue with my position. They are entitled to their opinions.

But what their responses screamed is the fact that some much-needed perspective is woefully overdue in regards to this subject.

There are two camps of thought when it comes to the global warming debate: The “Humans are responsible camp” and the “Mother Nature did it” camp. The first camp wants to end the burning of fossil fuels and move on to renewable energy, put a stop to industrial-scale livestock farming, plant more trees, etc. The second camp wants to “Drill, baby, drill,” mine more coal, and raze all the forests. Here’s where the perspective comes in…

Let’s say you just suffered a massive heart attack. Through the grace of God, the heroic efforts of the paramedics on the ambulance, and an emergency quadruple bypass, you survive. What was the cause of your heart attack? Is it your family history of heart disease or the fact that you eat bacon and eggs in the morning, three cheeseburgers for lunch every day, a family-sized pizza every night, and a rack of spare ribs on Saturday and Sunday, smoke like a chimney, and never exercise? Does it matter? If you want to continue living, once you get out of the hospital, you’re going to cut the salt and fat out of your diet, reduce your cholesterol, give up cigarettes, lose weight, and buy a membership to the gym. You’re going to change your lifestyle. You’re going to do something!

We need to do whatever is humanly possible to end it, or at least mitigate it as much as possible. That means transitioning to clean, renewable forms of energy; eating less meat, or giving it up entirely; re-planting forests on farmland left idle because we no longer need it to grow feed for cattle, hogs, chickens, etc.; and whatever else we can do to reduce the amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, regardless of whether we, or Nature, put them there. Because global warming is a threat to all life on Planet Earth.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

Something strange could be coming for America’s money…

In the inner circles of the financial and political elite, a plan is being discussed. The ultimate goal? To bring the money in your bank account directly under the control of the federal government.

As Bill’s coauthor on The Bill Bonner Letter, Dan Denning, says, if you believe in financial independence, you’re going to hate this.

Ben Carson News
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is letting President Donald Trump take the lead on a partial government shutdown should a spending bill be presented that fails to fund his call for a border wall.

McConnell has told Senate colleagues he is not interested in shutting down government agencies, and recently explained to reporters that a shutdown would not be “a great way to end what in my view has been the most successful Congress, right of center, in decades.”

Senate Republicans think a shutdown would be a mistake as the 2020 election cycle nears and they will need to defend 22 seats at a time when Democrat turnout likely will be higher. In addition, McConnell, R-Ky., is seeking re-election, and has been advising Trump on different options.

“It’s the president battle, so I think he’s going to set the terms,” said Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn of Texas, who serves as McConnell’s top leadership deputy, reports The Hill.

Donald Trump News
President Donald Trump early on Monday again criticized the Federal Reserve for its current series of interest-rate increases, days before the U.S. central bank is expected to push up interest rates again, Reuters reports.

Special: Statins Are a Dangerous Scam, Top Doctor Warns. See Why.

“It is incredible that with a very strong dollar and virtually no inflation, the outside world blowing up around us, Paris is burning and China way down, the Fed is even considering yet another interest rate hike. Take the Victory!” Trump tweeted.

Almost all economists expect the Fed to raise rates again at its meeting this week, while many also see the central bank making increases next year, although at a slower pace in the face of a possible economic recession.

Last week, Trump told Reuters he needed the flexibility of lower interest rates to support the broader U.S. economy as he fights a growing trade battle against China, and potentially other countries.

Donald Trump News
 

President Donald Trump and his attorney, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, blasted Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen Sunday while Trump also attacked the FBI for “breaking into” his former attorney’s office.

 

“Remember, Michael Cohen only became a “Rat” after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday morning. “They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE! Why didn’t they break into the DNC to get the Server, or Crooked’s office?”

Trump also continued his attacks on former FBI former FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

“So where are all the missing Text messages between fired FBI agents Peter S and the lovely Lisa Page, his lover. Just reported that they have been erased and wiped clean. What an outrage as the totally compromised and conflicted Witch Hunt moves ever so slowly forward. Want them!” Trump tweeted.

Trump Killed Obamacare

Ben Carson News
 

The Trump administration has not repealed and replaced Obamacare as promised, but it has made moves to dismantle it, including creating job growth that has made it less of a necessity for Americans and helping dwindle its enrollment, CNBC reported.

As a federal judge in Texas ruled the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional from a lawsuit backed by the White House, a fight to the Supreme Court looms and the signature policy from former President Barack Obama’s administration is showing dwindling numbers.

Here are five 5 ways Pres. Trump helped to kill Obamacare enrollment, according to CNBC:

  • ‘Skimpy’ health insurance plans – Healthy, younger Americans can hold cheaper and less comprehensive coverage than the Obamacare plans now, which was made possible by the Trump administration.
  • Repeal of the individual mandate – Americans are no longer penalized for not holding healthcare coverage, so more younger healthy Americans have seen the healthcare expense less necessary.
  • Affordable Care Act budget cuts – The Trump administration cut down on spending, including the $100 million spent by the Obama administration on advertising and promotion of his healthcare law.
  • Fewer days to sign up – As the ACA matured, less weeks were planned for open enrollment for the following year and the Trump administration began shortening the enrollment period last year.

Error of Exodus 30 Reveals Hidden Healing Formula?
It’s believed to have been mistranslated for centuries… And its implications will absolutely STUN the Church.

In the Bible’s Exodus 30:23, detailing the recipe for Anointing Oil, there’s a missing ingredient… One that scientists uncovered has the ability to prevent, stop, and even reversesome of today’s deadliest diseases. This may be the reason why some of Jesus’ Apostles were able to perform miracles!

Yet 2,300 years ago, some scholars believe a mistranslation obscured the real contents of the Anointing Oil. And that nearly everyone has gotten it wrong ever since. We’ve laid out the full findings of our investigation in a new presentation.
