Have you considered the vast new frontiers of corruption

opened up by the POTUS moving the market hundreds of points on given days by his tweets?

A "normal" President (in the modern sense) has to at least wait until he's out of office for book deals, speech fees and the like. Which is a matter for extreme outrage among some of our participants.

This one doesn't even have to wait because his personal finances are totally opaque and there's a multitude of vehicles to launder through.

And of course a non-stop daily barrage of crazy just covers the trail because nobody can possibly keep up.

But the rules are different for Good People who relieve The Good People from their Butthurtedness.

One nut case gets the boot and another replaces him. This site will die a very slow and painful death.

Re: eye roll

when I saw that from "nutz" I immediately thought of him in his Florida senior home amidst his "circle" of male "friends".  My two cents says that he is one of the betas, not one of the alphas.

It is frightening to observe mental illness take hold, though. I want POTUS Trump to succeed, at least in the sense that he keeps a really frightening socialist reformer out of office, but that TDS stuff is really bad to watch.

So now you want us to believe this man so incompetent that should be removed by the 25th amendment has the mental fortitude to totally manipulate the markets to his gains...........hate kills the brain - Tony Katz.

Re: Have you considered the vast new frontiers of corruption

The one thing we all know is that Trump is a crook- probably has been since he left the cradle. Never saw a scam he didn't jump on.

Many tolerate it because he helps with the self esteem problems that they're experiencing about their role in society.

So why wouldn't he?

Hundreds of $Billions in valuation change hands on days like Friday. Hundreds of $Millions in real cash change hands for short term traders.

Why wouldn't he- he's a crook through and through. And all somebody would have to do for the quid pro quo is rent a week in a few hundred hotel suites.

He could easily disprove that, and other allegations. I'd say guilty until he proves otherwise.

Exceedingly easy to disprove.

Re: Have you considered the vast new frontiers of corruption

Very reasonable observations:

There's never been a POTUS who'd make frequent and regular bat#### crazy tweets and comments that created huge daily swings in the market.

There's never been a POTUS with no financial transparency and a multitude of opaque vehicles with which he could receive bribes or emoluments.

Do you have a problem with either of those statements?

Re: Have you considered the vast new frontiers of corruption

To flesh that out a little further

other than providing a tax cut, Trump doesn't have anything to do with the stock market. The level and swings are made by the 5 big banks that hold $2T of derivatives against it, with the life and annuity industry as the counter parties.

The trading profits of those banks are actually fairly transparent- you can see it by who's getting the big year end bonuses (used to be mortgage derivative types) now it is equity derivative specialists.

The details are always important- that's who Trump was on the phone to after the market tanked 800 pts. a couple weeks ago.

The scary thing to him ought to be (and I agree, he's not that smart) is that they don't really care if it is up or down, just so they know long enough in advance to get positioned.

They'll put a stake in his heart at some point if that happens to be where the money is. Which I'm pretty certain he isn't smart enough to know.
