Actually it's pretty clever on his part as well since if things don't go according to plan, Trumpligula can claim he wasn't correctly quoted etc. over and over and over louder and louder until it's believable and further discredit WaPo more than they have done to themselves.

The WAPO, NY TIMES CNN FB opened this can of worms- if they had just stuck to reporting the news they could have held readership and the journalistic higher ground. the contrast would have been clear.
Instead they went on an offensive, and it blew up on them because they publish a fair amount of fake news themselves

First mistake with WaPo is selling to bezos, who has ax to grind with trump.

They had to sell to someone with deep pockets who would support continued losses other wise they would have gone out of business with their current propaganda approach

The issue is that govt grants the broadcast licenses so the media outlets are less likely to criticize

The rosy scenario of economic wonders from a Trump administration that predominated after his election. Now as his inauguration approaches the uncertainty is weighing on the markets.

It's not so much fake as in false, but selective and partisan.

Some of it is partisan and some of it IS FALSE.

Stories like this are FALSE http://fakenews.news/2017/02/03/ap-reports-fake-news-trumps-intention-invade-mexico/

I keep hearing that Donald Trump called the media the enemy of the people. This is also FALSE when he said FAKE NEWS MEDIA was the enemy of the people, not the media.

She raised rates because the economy was accelerating.

Not sure that is the case-
Helen Hayes from CNBC asked her why she was raising rates into a tired expansion- she had no good answer

Employment and stock market for sure.

Stock market now has highest P/E ratios - Stock market is not an indicator of the economy, but rather Fed policy.

It's true, the US economy is clearly accelerating.

That article cited NO data to support the contention that the economy is accelerating!

A repeat of the story you have heard 100 times about how the US Mint suffered a silver shortage because of the gold rush of 1849- that one?

hi im porter stansbury

You didnt read or listen- there is nothing in the content that has anything to do with a collapse of the economy, the dollar or other wise- it is a discussion of an historic episode around the mid 19th century..
But the sacasm would have been appreciated if it was relevant

Why do their reported holdings fluctuate so much? This is probably just routine petro-dollar transactions. Will be interesting to watch this trend though

Russia's overall reserves have fluctuated wildly the past few years as they sold their treasuries when sanctions were instituted. Then they ramped up gold purchases. Seems now as they are rebuilding reserves they are replacing some of their treasuries holdings that they sold a few years back

Anyone bought BTC or Ethereum using Coinbase? Do you recommend using ACH or debit/credit card? I know ACH is cheaper.

Coinbase has limits on credit card purchases. The direct draw from the bank account can be done subject to verification of identity.

FedCoin- a crypto currency issued by the Federal Reserve

Seriously? This defeats one of the primary motivations for cryptocurrency: to be out of the control of central banks.

Correct, the fed isnt interested in decentralized private currencies, they want to control the whole thing from end to end!

clearly CYA- he had to find SOMETHING and something to counter trump's view that this was a hoax- he came up with SEE there were russians trying to influence the election- even though they did not collude with trump and even though they were unsuccessful
The narrative now is it is a HUGE threat and trump denies it and wont do anything about it! LOL

Gold and silver are not real investments. You must give up 1. dividends 2. interest 3. capital gains and be willing to accept 4. risk of falling prices.

If I felt the need to preserve capital I would buy an account in Swiss Francs.

Land can be useful if you have capital to buy it, but counties like taxing it to pay their costs of educating, incarcerating, medicating, and firefighting for the residents. Land also isn't very liquid.
you also pay storage and insurance fees.
