News and news …..

Some Quick Catch-up:

Amid the noise of dossiers and market tumbles pay attention to Afghanistan. This administration has a more hawkish view of military use than the dovish Obama administration. They are moving troops out of Iraq to Afghanistan. Some things to know and watch:
They are not moving all troops like Obama did and allowing ISIS to establish itself and grow. They will maintain a presence to assure gains are kept.
Afghanistan though is another issue. The Taliban have been very active recently and made some gains. The administration tried negotiating with them but it went no where.
So after some recent bombings we are going after them. Troops are moving in and air strikes will be heavy.
Watch the news coverage catch up to this. It will be negative and Afghanistan will be called “our longest war” and “not winnable”.
It may be un-winnable, as there is no real government, an uneducated population, lack of infrastructure and a history of countries coming in and walking away. People are afraid to align with us because if we leave they will be killed.
It’s a mess, and yet we know if we leave it will become a breeding ground for terrorists again.

Stay tuned. Trump and team will error on the side of aggressiveness. This will be the foreign policy issue of the year.

The Market Declines:

What we expect:
We expect today will be a little bumpy again, up and down, and in a day or two we’ll level off. Lot’s of noise from the MSM but all we’ve done is give back the 2018 gains. The 2017 gains are still there and the fundamentals are good.

The question we always ask someone is this: “Do you think the market will hit a new all time high in your lifetime?”
If the answer is yes, then what are you worried about?

Hey Chuck it’s Feb. 6th:

Hey Chuck Schumer today is February 6th, where are you? We are two days from your deadline. Why so quiet?
Maybe you should be fixing problems rather than running before cameras and creating them.

A Democrat Memo and a Second Dossier

The plot thickens with the Democrat memo and news of a second memo that was possibly supported by the Clinton machine. You know what, just release everything and open all the talks to the public. Let’s see where truth is.

One thing we learned yesterday reading Carter Page’s testimony to Congress. (It was behind closed doors but released). Now remember he was the reason for the “concern” and a reason for the rumors.
Well you know what?
He has never met with, talked to or exchanged an email or a text with Donald Trump.
Imagine that.
