    STOCKMAN: Trump Could Be Gone By February

    David Stockman, who headed the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, in a new commentary warns:
    Ultimately, the hammer of fiscal crisis and a crashing stock market will break any remaining loyalty of the GOP elders as they smell the 2018 elections turning into a replay of the rout of 1974.

    And then the Donald will be gone, and well before August 2018, too. I told an audience in Vancouver last Friday that it could happen by February.

    The bottom line is that the Swamp is so undrainable that it will end up making mincemeat of Donald Trump....

    In essence, the Donald is the ultimate bull in an exceedingly fragile China shop — and an already badly wounded one at that.

    So it is no understatement to suggest that the S&P 500 at 2470 and the Dow at 22,000 is about as fragile as the “market” has ever been.

    And Amazon, poster boy for Bubble Finance, is trading around 190 times earnings.

    Any untoward pinprick could send it into a tailspin — meaning that the coming political bleeding-out of the Donald amounts to a 50,000 pound pin.

    It’s the mighty Orange Swan that will lay the casino low like never before. At the moment, I am not as concerned about the economy as Stockman. I see short-term trouble ahead for the stock market but I don't necessarily see the stock market causing another major recession in the near term.

    That said, how will the unpredictable Donald Trump deal with a market crash? Will he spook the entire system?

    And what about all the generals that surround him?

    And if Trump makes it through February, will he make through the Ides of March?

    Not even Julius Ceasar could make it through that mark on the calendar with angry senators around him.

    Kobe Bryant learned it, Lebron James has learned it, and now we see Trump learning it. No matter the cause, no matter the might, no matter the talent, you are only as good as those who surround you. Trump is a man on an island with no, zero, nada, squat, support from others in government. No matter his drive or determination the weight of the negativity, corruption, collusion in DC will crush even the strongest of men. If he musters 1/2 of his promises it could swing the attitudes of the less entrenched. That is when real change will happen.

    The thing is that I think most of his supporters see this and get further entrenched, realizing that this is what is wrong with DC and becoming more committed to change it.

    Exactly .... I keep waiting for the day when the non-believers, the never-Trumper's, the politically correct shills, the decent people who have been conned all the years by the leftist media and all those who just don't give a big rat's @zz .... open their eyes, WAKE UP and realize, HEY!!, this guy really cares about America, maybe he ain't perfect but at least he CARES and he's willing to fight for US; maybe we should get behind this guy!!

    Of course .... I may have to wait a while longer ...... :(

    Trump cares about Trump and Trump only.

    The rest of us he holds in complete contempt unless you're kissing his ass, and I simply refuse to pucker up for such an absolutely deplorable human being.
     
  6. You're a trip lmao. I could write the same $&@#% thing verbatim but swap out Dumbo or Hitlery for Trump.

  9. No, the cluster are the obstructionist DC POLITICIANS on both sides of the aisle who can't stand an outsider in the office. Personally I'm loving it as does roughly half the country. The other half will just have to suck it up for 7-1/2 more years. So get to sucking, something you're very good at judging by post history.

    You used to be rational, although we disagreed, but now you've turned the corner to hate filled, irrational right wing guano crazy. Sorry about that, but you've gone off the rails and we have little, if anything, in common to discuss.
     
  11. You've turned into a mean, spiteful, butt hurt ahole since the election went way different from the way you predicted loud and proud for all to hear. It's you who have changed but your bitterness and hate has blinded you. I've always been a fiscal conservative, social liberal. It's called libertarian. And you're right, I ain't trying to talk to you.

    No, that was just latent racism. President Obama was the epitome of class in office. I didn't agree with him all the time, but he never embarrassed us, like Trump does daily.
     
  14. Lmao I dying over here. Eight years of embarrassment. Of course, libturds were ecstatic over our national embarrassment. What a flipping buffoon you are.
