September began where August left off in financial markets, with U.S. stocks suffering losses that rank with the worst of the last 11 months amid fresh signs China’s slowdown is hampering global growth. Gold and Treasuries rallied.
The selloff in risk assets around the world resumed Tuesday after one of the most volatile trading periods since the financial crisis erased $5.7 trillion from the value of global equities last month.
U.S. stocks suffered their second-biggest losses of 2015 after data showed manufacturing expansion slowed amid anemic demand from emerging markets, adding to concern that weakness in China is spreading.
Even worse for the DNC: Just 35% think amnesty is the cure.
(Rasmussen) – Voters remain seriously worried about illegal immigration and still think stricter border control is the best way to stop it. But slightly fewer voters believe providing a pathway to citizenship will encourage more illegal immigrants to come.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 80% of Likely U.S. Voters regard illegal immigration as a serious problem in America today, with 50% who describe it as a Very Serious one. Twenty percent (20%) don’t consider illegal immigration a serious problem, but that includes only five percent (5%) who say it’s Not At All Serious. These attitudes have changed little since the first of the year.
By comparison, 63% say global warming is a serious problem, with 35% who view it as Very Serious.
When it comes to immigration reform, 58% of voters continue to think gaining control of the border is more important than legalizing the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States. That’s down from April’s recent high of 63% but generally in line with surveys over the past three years. Thirty-five percent (35%) say it’s more important to grant legal status to those already living here, up five points from April.
As you know, my dear people, the last year for me has been an annus horribilus. The Royal House of Clinton has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi – in the furthest regions of our empire. And, sadly, also questions about my Royal e-mails.
Nevertheless, I will not be daunted in my desire and commitment to serve you the people. For the next seventeen months I will be traveling among you as one of you, to listen to your deepest longings and needs. I will be with you in your Wal-Mart and beside you in your Burger Kings. I will drive with you down the busy interstate highways of our land sharing your poverty and needs with you.
How well I remember the days when the Duke of Arkansas and I were impoverished. After we were expelled from our Washington Palace we hardly had two mansions to rub together. We were so poor we had to remove thousands of dollars of china, flatware, carpets and gifts from the Washington Palace just to survive, only to be forced to return much of the treasures by Washington. Now, happily, benefactors from around our empire have given just enough for us to scrape by.
During those difficult times we had to cut back when our daughter was married. We only had three million dollars to spend on her wedding, and I remember our hopes as she moved into her $10 million Manhattan apartment that one day she would be able to move on from that humble abode to something more fitting. After working for MSNBC for a starting salary of a mere $600,000.00, what could she do.
So as I travel across our land to meet you all, I will be listening and sharing with you. Then when the time for the royal election comes I know you will crown me as your rightful monarch so that I can continue the King Obama policies, and we can all live happily ever after.
Obama is doing NOTHING to really stop these barbarians. Just give our Marines the orders to go in with EVERYTHING they got on land and air and keep every politician out of it and I assure you ISIS will be destroyed within a week! STOP KICKING THIS CAN DOWN THE ROAD and let the people who fight wars deal with this AND THEM ONLY! It’s really that simple!…..Papa Mike
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has emerged as a leading Republican presidential candidate in Iowa and is closing in on frontrunner Donald Trump in the state that hosts the first 2016 nomination balloting contest.
The latest Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows billionaire Trump with the support of 23 percent of likely Republican caucus participants, followed by Carson at 18 percent. When first and second choices are combined, Carson is tied with Trump.
Trump finds himself in a vastly better position than when the previous Iowa Poll was taken. He has become a credible presidential candidate to many likely Republican caucus-goers. The real estate mogul is rated favorably by 61 percent and unfavorably by 35 percent, an almost complete reversal since the Iowa Poll in May. He finds his highest ratings among those planning to attend the caucuses for the first time (69 percent) and limited-government Tea Party activists (73 percent). Just 29 percent say they could never vote for him, a number cut in half since May.
