It's not what you think

A blow-off top is what people who study charts see forming. Another way to say it is that the last melt-up beefore a crash is happening. That's the contrarian consensus. Trumphoria is dying.

Predicting when is impossible, but lifting the debt ceiling will be hard, and in a couple of months it will become clear that the greatness projects can't be paid for without many trillions more USD of debt. Then anything can happen, and not good things...

Look for yourself, at retail, restaurants, autos, rail traffic, goods shipments, shipping worldwide, etc etc etc.

IMO It Was As Much A Financial Decision That Pushed O'Reilly Out As SCANDAL

Fox News depended heavily on those who specifically sponsored *The O'Reilly Factor" ...
Bill O'Reilly was *"the drawing card" for Sponsors and Patrons as well as Viewers. He was the Magnet for the $$$

Conservatives saw him as their Mouth Piece.

For Bill O'Reilly - Withi Fox News Channel ~~. *The Spin has stopped" - as he has been shown the door.
Can Neil Cavuto - Tucker Carlson - or Sean Hannity ... Fill O'Reilly's often OBNOXIOUS shoes?
I doubt it

America's Undocumented Immigrant Workforce Has Stopped Growing


      'According to a report from the Pew Research Center, an estimated 8 million undocumented immigrants were either working or looking for work in the U.S. in 2014, from the 8.1 million that were in the U.S. workforce in 2009.

      'Overall, this group made up about 5% of the U.S. workforce in 2014, Pew reported.

      'The flagging growth in the number of undocumented workers is a sharp contrast to the decade prior to the recession. Between 1995 and 2005, the number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. workforce more than doubled from 3.6 million to 7.3 million, Pew reported.

      'Mexico is a big part of the recent slowdown, said Mark Hugo Lopez, Pew's director of Hispanic research. "Not only is it harder to cross the border into the United States from Mexico, it's harder to cross into Mexico from Central America," he said.

      'Mexico's stable economy has also helped stem the flow of undocumented immigrants coming into the U.S.

      '"Mexico hasn't experienced an economic crisis recently," Lopez said. "And now there's a growing number of Mexicans who feel like life in the U.S. isn't that much better than life in Mexico."

      'Even though undocumented workers represent just fraction of the overall U.S. workforce, there are industries where they figure prominently. In the agricultural and construction industries, for example, undocumented workers represent 17% and 13% of the labor force respectively, Pew reported.'

      Why Undocumented Immigrants Pay Taxes



          'Out of the nearly 11.1 million undocumented immigrants estimated to be living in the U.S., Pew Research projected that there were about 8 million in the workforce in 2014.

          'Nearly half, or 3.4 million, of those workers paid Social Security taxes, according to 2014 estimates from the Social Security administration. And while the agency doesn't have a figure for how much this group paid in taxes that year, it said that unauthorized immigrant workers and their employers contributed $13 billion in payroll taxes in 2010, its most current estimate.

          'But why would millions of undocumented immigrants file their tax returns if they could easily fly under the radar?

          '"First of all, it's the law," said Jose Magaña-Salgado, a policy attorney at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center. "And these undocumented immigrants are trying to abide by the law and are fulfilling their civic and financial responsibilities."

          'Should they ever go before an immigration judge, it will also help their case.

          'Magaña-Salgado said judges tend to look more favorably upon immigrants who have a history of filing and paying their taxes. "Filing taxes helps to build a record of existence here in the United States if they are facing permanent deportation hearings," he said.

          'Many undocumented immigrants are also seeking to get a refund.

          '"Whether someone is documented or not, it doesn't mean that they shouldn't avail themselves to the tax laws of the U.S.," Magaña-Salgado said. "And if they are due a refund, it's because they paid more than their income required."'

          Tesla Quietly Unveils Sleek New Solar Panels


              "When Musk decided to reposition Tesla publicly as a solar company, he did so with the usual fanfare: at a splashy event in Los Angeles in October 2016, he unveiled the forthcoming Tesla solar roof, which contains hidden photovoltaic cells that make it more aesthetically appealing than the bulky panels you see affixed to homes.

              Musk said at the time,

              We really need to make solar panels as appealing as electric cars have become.

              Visual appeal is important, but so are the costs. That might help explain why Musk quietly rolled out a new product this weekend solar panels you can affix to your existing roof."

              Wells Fargo orders former top execs to pay back $75M after scathing report on accounts scandal

              Weak corporate oversight to blame, investigation finds

              By James Rufus Koren, Los Angeles Times

              Published: April 10, 2017, 3:51 PM

              LOS ANGELES — In a long-anticipated report released Monday, Wells Fargo & Co. pinned the blame for its unauthorized-accounts scandal on weak corporate oversight, an unwatchful former CEO and the executive who led the bank’s community banking division.

              The San Francisco bank also said it would take back more than $47 million in pay from the former community banking executive, Carrie Tolstedt, and $28 million from former Chief Executive John Stumpf.

              Those new clawbacks are in addition to the bank’s move last year to cancel about $41 million in stock awards for Stumpf and $19 million for Tolstedt.

              The report was commissioned by the bank’s board last year and prepared by the Shearman & Sterling law firm. It alleged that Tolstedt not only failed to see the potential harm caused by unauthorized account openings and other unethical sales practices — but that she tried to keep information about those practices away from the board and others at the bank. That included the number of workers fired for unethical conduct.

              “Tolstedt effectively challenged and resisted scrutiny,” the report said, describing Tolstedt and members of her “inner circle” as “insular and defensive.”

              Tolstedt, on the advice of her lawyer, declined to be interviewed during Shearman & Sterling’s investigation, according to the report.

              In an emailed statement Monday, Enu Mainigi, an attorney for Tolstedt, said, “We strongly disagree with the report and its attempt to lay blame with Ms. Tolstedt. A full and fair examination of the facts will produce a different conclusion.”

              Stumpf, meanwhile, was overly deferential to Tolstedt, the report found, and to the bank’s longstanding focus on cross-selling, which required employees to sell multiple services to individual customers. As a result, it said, he was “too late and too slow” to make changes.

              The report paints the bank’s board, meanwhile, as being out of the loop on the scope of the sales problems. Asked Monday if he should resign, Wells Fargo Chairman Stephen Sanger, who has been on the bank’s board since 2003, defended the board’s actions, saying it has acted properly since the scandal came to light.

              “As we got information, we acted appropriately,” he said.

              Echoing the Shearman & Sterling report, Sanger said the board was not made aware of the scope of the problem — millions of potentially unauthorized accounts, and 5,300 workers fired for bad practices — until the bank reached a $185 million settlement with regulators last year.

              The internal bank investigation was released just days after an influential shareholder advisory firm said that board members failed to properly oversee the bank and could have done more to prevent “unsound retail banking sales practices.”

              Buffett And Airlines


                  and more about why oil and Venezuela is important

                  Does WB see something that we don't, and did I see something before everybody else six months ago?
                  Warren Buffet bought the Burlington Railway "pipeline on wheels" when the Keystone XL pipeline wasn't being built. Now it is, and WB is investing in airlines!? Both WB himself and many others have said that airlines are a terrible investment. They're extremely capital and labour intensive and operate with on average low profit margins. The real kicker though is consumption of enormous amounts of fuel, which means that airlines are the first to benefit from a low oil price.

                  This is a total "I told you so", but it's not about how smart I am, but about how dumb and superficial most journo hacks and bloggers are. There was this massive cheering on of US oil production, and I commented last year more than once or twice that too much oil will crash the oil price and kill the indebted oil industry and collapse the world financially in a world with weakness everywhere. Can you hear the dominoes go clack clack clack?

                  Now there's worry about oversupply and the oil price, but some still keep on cheering. Recently I commented: Sure, knock yourselves out. They'll be sorry when they get what they wish for.

                  I don't know how soon Vzla will ramp up oil production - they sure do need the money - but when they do, watch out!
