Turkey's coming crisis

I have seen some things like this...

Makes me think that Turkey itself on the verge of crisis. They're now beyond the point of entering Europe and are now moving the other way. It likely had a lot of financial things done assuming more Euro integration not less. things are moving in a bad direction and inflation is rising. it's not a crisis yet but it's clearly taking form.. it's not on a lot of people's radar yet.. but as europe moves right and merkel falls this trend will become more mainstream.

Rose and Bloomberg

One tie people might overlook is that Charlie Rose owes much of his success to Mike Bloomberg...who provided him with a studio and venue for at least a decade. ... and never forget that Bloomberg himself has a history of settling sexual harassment cases. .. birds of a feather?

The crypto threat

The more I look at crypto currencies like bitcoin the more I think conservatives should be at least slightly concerned about them.

First of all, it's controlled by silicon valley and all the people who hate Trump and middle America.

Secondly, they have zero oversight and no one has any "rights" under the law. Thirdly much of traditional finance is rushing into them.

There is no clear threat now but one can see the potential for risk down the road. The combination of "hash power" -- or computing power with wealth -- is one red flag. Another is the way this stuff is entering the financial system via futures later this year. Another is the risk of bribery and coercion via unseen transactions.

So at present things aren't clear.. but there are some ingredients here for something not good in terms of freedom.

A coming opportunity to fire Jeff Sessions

I just thought of something.. say Trump waits til early 2018 to fire Jeff Sessions. At that point Congress will be looking to the midterms and primary challenges. Given how much more popular Trump is than many of them.. and Bannon's ascendancy, it could shield Trump from any kind of serious impeachment threat.

The Swamp has a few more months of protection.. but then as the primaries approach they're sitting ducks. Moore or no Moore it doesn't matter..
