    -700.

    Highest housing debt, higher than 2008.

    Bond market flashed higher than 2008. The benchmark T-note broke below the 2 year rate, worse than 2008.

    Citigroup down 6%. Bank of America, 4.3%, J.P. Morgan ... 3.5%. The banks are in free fall today.

    And all the other things I've been talking about the last few weeks are happening today.

    The equity market is on borrowed time after the yield curve inverts, which means we're 6-18ish months away from a recession.

    Welcome to the Trump Recession.

    Hardly surprising that Trump returned to the embrace of an old and comfortable bogeyman. This whole episode demonstrates to me that Trump is STILL pissed that he lost the popular vote three years ago, so he's back to his familiar whine of voter fraud, even though there's been ZERO basis of truth to his ridiculous claims, but, he'll keep at it anyway.

    And that's why the commission was closed in 2017 ... they found 0 cases that benefited his opponent. They even found members of his own family and cabinet had committed voter fraud ... it was a giant self-own.

    The only reason people would reelect Trump would be because the economy was doing well. If that tanks, then he'll go down with the ship. Plain and simple.

    If they run stopgap legislation like the GOP did in 2007, the recession begins AFTER November 2020.

    Pin it on the Dems, win or lose, will be the play call.

    The GOP will want a massive tax cut, which will do diddly. If the economy tanks, only Gov. spending will bail it out, and given the current GOP driven debt, that will be hard.

    A Dem win in the WH and Congress could bring Roosevelt type s&*t, which would be a good thing.

    Even if the downturn starts before the election he'll pin it on the Dems in the House. Trump tries to take responsibility for everything good and blame others for everything bad.

    I’m sure the poll numbers and shaky economic situation from his horrible trade war have him secretly worried. He’s going to preemptively start ranting about voter fraud just like he did leading up to 2016 when the poll numbers showed him losing to Clinton. He’s going to start saying it’s rigged against him and push even more conspiracies. Wouldn’t be surprised if he mentions the Deep State in a few speeches.

    U.S. Rep. Steve King: If not for rape and incest, 'would there be any population left?'

    U.S. Rep. Steve King told the Westside Conservative Club Wednesday that humanity might not exist if not for rape and incest throughout human history.

    "What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?" he said in Urbandale, Iowa. "Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can't say that I was not a part of a product of that."

    The Kiron Republican was discussing his defense of not allowing exceptions for rape and incest in the anti-abortion legislation he tried to pass in Congress. Republican leadership had prevented bills he sponsored on banning abortions from advancing through the House, despite GOP support for the measures, King said.

    Just because a conception happened in bad circumstances doesn't mean the result isn't a person, King, who is Catholic, argued.

    "It's not the baby's fault for the sin of the father, or of the mother," he said.

    Hopefully, America is woke enough to be smart to Trump's double speak.

    He already lied to Michigan's backbone factory workers ... where are those jobs he promised?

    His goose is cooked.

    It won't matter what he says, most voters tie the economy to the President. There aren't enough of his blind, dumb supporters to make a difference.
