A lot of people don't understand that Trump & his incoming team didn't face a normal transition period, like it was over a in a matter of a few weeks or months.
The DOJ transition period JUST ENDED when Sessions left. Almost 2 exact years to get it there.
All kinds of stuff has been going on behind the scenes nobody leaks or talks about.
We only had the barest mention of the fact the Clinton Email investigation restarted

As I discussed in the linked column below, they don't have anything on Carter Page and they never did. All that supposedly 'verified' evidence the FBI claimed to have that proved he was a foreign agent?
Steele Dossier + media
As the evidence is rolled out that political partisans inside the DOJ/FBI targeted the Trump campaign with a counterintel op to entrap it by sending confidential intel assets posing as Russian agents, the desperation is getting palpable.
Alexander Downer, Stefan Halper and Joseph Mifsud are all tied to the *Western* intel community. Did I say tied? I meant they work inside it, have deep roots there.
All 3 live/work inside the UK/US/Austraila intel community.
Yet the narrative of the Trump/Russia Election Collusion story demands at least ONE of these three men just HAS to be a real, live Russian spy.
So they've picked Mifsud. Too much is publicly known about Downer - who give interviews - and Halper to pretend they are Putin spies.
The OPR report with documentary proof McCabe was involved in a illegal leak about Gen. Flynn & POTUS was released yesterday.
I expect more stuff dropping this week.
Democrats have October Surprises planned?
Well so does Trump.
The next 3 weeks are going to be lit.
BREAKING: Migrants in caravan turn back after moving toward border crossing on Mexico-Guatemala frontier.— The Associated Press (@AP) October 19, 2018
How many got through the last time they pulled this stunt? Did they get the huge photo op of the kids being separated from their parents that they wanted?
Would people STOP PRETENDING they don't know Trump is ready for this?
Sheer panic in my mentions. 'OMG THEY GOT THROUGH A FENCE NOTHING'S GONNA STOP THEM NOW ARGLE BARGLE BARF!"
Grow the hell up.
Some of them are still coming, you say? Well my goodness, I guess that means there's nothing Trump can do now.
He's finished, isn't he? 🤔
I'm reminded again why Thomas Wictor had to frequently tell people DON'T BRING ME YOUR FEAR, I'm not interested in it. Take it somewhere else.
If this caravan actually DOES make it our border, Trump will have measures ready to deal with it.
Stop the hysteria.
BREAKING: President Donald Trump has submitted his answers to questions from special counsel Robert Mueller— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 20, 2018
Mueller's officially end his investigation all on his own and he's gonna say he found no evidence of Trump campaign/Russian collusion during the 2016 election.
Democrats & DNC Media are going to LITERALLY have nothing coherent to say in response to that.
Mueller's team was 100% partisan.
That's why it's brilliant. NOBODY will be able to claim this team of partisan Democrats didn't go the EXTRA 20 MILES looking for ANY evidence they could find of Trump campaign/Russian collusion during the 2016 election
They looked high.
They looked low.
They looked underneath every rock, behind every tree, into every bush.
And they found...NOTHING.
Those saying Mueller will file obstruction charges against Trump: laughable.
What documents did Trump tell the Mueller team it couldn't have? What witnesses were withheld and never interviewed?
THERE WEREN'T ANY.
Mueller got full 100% cooperation as the record will show.

Imagine, for a moment, the reaction of the UK Government, Brexiters, and the RW UK press if Juncker, Tusk, Macron or Merkel went on TV to say that Brexit was worth it to stop Freedom of Movement for UK citizens, and to stop Brits being able to come to the EU and jump the queue.— Steve Bullock (@GuitarMoog) November 20, 2018
2/ Imagine if the EU said finally all those retired Brits in the EU27 could go home
3/ Imagine if the EU said finally all those Brits in the EU could stop driving down wages, taking jobs and stop sending benefits back to the UK
4/ Imagine if the EU said it was looking to use UK citizens as “bargaining chips” to get a better trade deal
5/ Imagine if the EU told UK citizens in the EU27 that they could no longer rely on established legal rights and they would have to apply for a new status which they have to pay for for less rights
This is the perfect asymptotic approach to the extremes of both Republican and Democratic rhetoric (which are both inevitably devoid of any sound logic) - you eventually get presidents like this. This is a warning call to dissolve the Republican and Democratic parties.
It seems to me our nation is now tossed between two insane extremes, bickering and arguing with each other, embodied in the Republican and Democratic parties. When you get extremist politicians who adhere fully to broken logic and rhetoric, our future is laid waste.
New parties must emerge soon. For fun, I propose a new party : "Uniters" and call the other parties "Dividers" (Republicans and Democrats). We can say that the Uniters believe in uniting people rather than dividing people.
That implies that one 'dominant' world view cannot prevail (including the illusion that we are in fact a set of states United right now) - we have to work and labor hard together to fulfill the promise the founders sought to build this country upon.
2/ But the summary is that Summers, Geithner, Orszag, Emanuel agreed on telling Obama and Biden in December 2008 that about $800b was an adequate stimulus. Would lower unemployment just below 8% by late 2010. Romer thought $2.1T or $1.7T was needed to achieve full employment.
3/ They wouldn't let her make the case in writing for $1.2T because her number could leak. The reasons for $800b were: they wanted the bill passed by February, so they could move on to health care reform and cap and trade; they had no ways to spend more;
4/ spending more might kick off inflation or cause markets to fall for fear of inflation; that might lead to more bank runs; more bank runs might require a second TARP so they couldn't ask Congress for too much for recovery; Pelosi would give them whatever they asked
5/ for but they didn't think they could get the needed 1 or 2 R Senators quickly if they asked for more; they wanted 60 but had only 58 D Senators; popular "moonshots" or signature items in the package would take too long (Biden asked for that);
"When you're driving down the street and you look over at your wife and you say, 'hey you know what, that guy is about to drive through the red light and kill that person...'"
"Senators of the United States... they're not ordinary people. They're extraordinary people in the technical sense of extraordinary people."

Treat Trading as a business:
• Stick to a single strategy. Eg: A restaurateur usually wouldn’t be changing his recipe on a daily basis
• Mitesh Sir only works on BO or BD strategy, as he is a versatile trader
• Any trader should atleast experience 3 scenarios i.e. bull, bear & consolidation
• Target 4% per month i.e. 48% p.a.
• Option buying requires skill, everyday there wont be huge momentum, so buying options won’t yield good results, but high chances of falling into a bad habit
• In F&O segment there are ~150 stocks
• Not everyday all stocks will move
• Only 5-7 stocks move upside or downside
• Focus only these momentum stocks
• Check which one is moving
• Range BO/BD never disappoints. BO/BD from a rectangle (consolidation)

Reliable source tells me Withdrawal Deal text contains
- No unilateral exit from backstop
- Large annexe on level playing field
.... after reporting this on @SkyNews I get a call from a different senior source that this is “spot on” and further that the Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has not pulled his punches in confirming in legal advice there is “no unilateral exit” from backstop ...
... furthermore I’m told (and this chimes with excellent Times splash this morning re Weyand) that the future partnership then takes its starting point as the activated backstop - ie UK-wide customs union-style arrangement and level playing field.

Knowing whether old ideas are more likely to be good requires understanding whether conditions have changed in important ways.
Horse archery was an amazing method of warfare for over a thousand years...then people invented guns, and suddenly this great idea that had stood the test of time became obsolete.
Then again, when underlying conditions don't change much, tried-and-true approaches are probably better.
