Not sure what to make of this one from The National Review?? If there were a bigger bunch of #NEVERTRUMPERS around than them I don't know who it would be. They're even worse than the f...ing M0R0NS on here!

The Manafort Indictment: Not Much There, and a Boon for Trump

by Andrew C. McCarthy October 30, 2017 2:20 PM
Do not be fooled by the “Conspiracy against the United States” heading.

The Paul Manafort indictment is much ado about nothing . . . except as a vehicle to squeeze Manafort, which is special counsel Robert Mueller’s objective — as we have been arguing for three months (see here, here, and here).

Do not be fooled by the “Conspiracy against the United States” heading on Count One (page 23 of the indictment). This case has nothing to do with what Democrats and the media call “the attack on our democracy” (i.e., the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election, supposedly in “collusion” with the Trump campaign). Essentially, Manafort and his associate, Richard W. Gates, are charged with (a) conspiring to conceal from the U.S. government about $75 million they made as unregistered foreign agents for Ukraine, years before the 2016 election (mainly, from 2006 through 2014), and (b) a money-laundering conspiracy.

There are twelve counts in all, but those are the two major allegations.

The so-called conspiracy against the United States mainly involves Manafort’s and Gates’s alleged failure to file Treasury Department forms required by the Bank Secrecy Act. Specifically, Americans who hold a stake in foreign bank accounts must file what’s known as an “FBAR” (foreign bank account report) in any year in which, at any point, the balance in the account exceeds $10,000. Federal law also requires disclosure of foreign accounts on annual income-tax returns. Manafort and Gates are said to have controlled foreign accounts through which their Ukrainian political-consulting income sluiced, and to have failed to file accurate FBARs and tax returns. In addition, they allegedly failed to register as foreign agents from 2008 through 2014 and made false statements when they belatedly registered.

In the money-laundering conspiracy, they are alleged to have moved money in and out of the United States with the intent to promote “specified unlawful activity.” That activity is said to have been their acting as unregistered foreign agents.

On first glance, Mueller’s case, at least in part, seems shaky and overcharged.(read more).

Consumer confidence hits highest level since December 2000
Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board.
The rating is at the highest level since December 2000.
This accounts for Americans' views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months.


by Michael Sheetz

Consumers were even more optimistic in October than economists polled by Reuters expected.

Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board.

The index "increased to its highest level in almost 17 years," Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board, said in a statement. That was in December 2000, when the index hit 128.6.

The economic weight of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma pulled down the spirits of U.S. consumers in September, when the index was relatively flat. In October, "consumers' assessment of current conditions improved," Franco said.

"[This was] boosted by the job market which had not received such favorable ratings since the summer of 2001," Franco said.

The high level of confidence suggests the economy will continue to expand "at a solid pace" for the rest of 2017, Franco added.

The index takes into account Americans' views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months. Economists pay close attention to the numbers because consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity.

Dow closes at record high in wild session after release of tax reform bill, Powell nomination
Published 8 Hours Ago Updated 54 Mins Ago

The Dow Jones industrial average closed 80 points higher after briefly falling 84 points. The index also hit a record intraday high.

U.S. equities closed mostly higher on Thursday after a wild session as investors examined the details of the tax-reform plan proposed by Republicans.

The plan would permanently lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent. It would also keep retirement savings plans like the popular 401(k) intact.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed 81.25 points higher at 23,516.26 — a record — after briefly falling 84 points. The index also hit a record intraday high. Shares of Boeing were the best-performers on the 30-stock index. (read more on CNBC)

From the Atlanta Fed it looks like the 4th quarter is on track for a 4.5% growth. If that turns out to be the case that is way beyond expectations. :mrgreen: =D> :D GO TRUMP GO

BOOM!!! There they go again!!

US economy rebounds from September slump by adding 261,000 jobs in October

The US economy bounced back in October from a dramatic slump in hiring in the wake of two devastating hurricanes, the labor department announced on Friday.

The US added 261,000 new jobs and the unemployment rate ticked down to 4.1%.

In September the US shed 30,000 jobs – the first loss in seven years – as hurricanes Harvey and Irma held back hiring in Texas and Florida. The leisure and hospitality industry was hardest hit by the hurricanes in September, shedding 111,000 jobs.

Employment in food services and drinking places rose sharply in October – up 89,000 – following a decrease of 98,000 in September.

October’s figure was still lower than analysts had expected, perhaps reflecting the continued impact of the storms. September was the second month of disappointing growth in the US jobs market. The labor department had calculated that the US had added 169,000 new positions in August, below the 180,000 that had been expected by economists.

But the figures from August and September have now been revised up, to 208,000 and 18,000 respectively. And at 4.1% the unemployment rate is now at lows unseen since December 2000.

4.5% would be great...higher than Obama's best quarter even.

I wouldn't get to excited yet though. The same Atlanta fed said on Monday growth would be 2.9% Not sure why they vary so much from day to day?
