The times Picayune new Orleans Louisiana other opinion he Bilston Herald on the Federal Reser Ellie torrent of word from the annual conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas Cit it in Jackson Hole Wyoming this past week and from the satellite meetings there throws no Light on whether the fed will raise interest rates next month. The Roc Kim is of the Stock Market notwithstanding it should. If rates Don t Rise at least a bit businesses and Consumers will conclude that the fed still expects Choppy economic Waters and will pull in their on it recently extended horns. Stock Price declines in China on Wall Street and around the world make headlines but they were inevitable a sometime after five years of suppressed interest rates that lured investors into buying shares to Chase dividends when they could earn Only i Bifid yields on Bond investments fhe Stock prices connection to the real Economy is very slender hive Vears of rising Stock prices did far less stimulating than the fed Exi it acted. China s Economy is not collapsing and neither is the american. The Commerce departments routine revision of second Quarter data showed the Economy rising at an annual rate of 3.7 percent far better than the 2.3 percent of the first assessment. Unemployment has fallen to 5.3 percent. For Many months fed members and fed watchers have wondered whether interest rates should or would Rise. Every meeting of the policy making open Market committee has shown the members deterred by weak economic data its just possible that some of that weakness was the result of the feds timidity a Normal array of interest rates sends important signals to All economic actors signals that hav e been distorted now for five years. One the value of Many pension funds has been suppressed by their inability to earn Normal Long term rates. If the Economy stumbles again it would be better to let Congress try to Sti Miliate it than to rely on the fed. More Content now Dave Granlund Don Don and the Tempe ties Kathleen Parker Katholi Washington he Trump Riddle to compel How has he managed to successfully execute such a mass deception he a by no definition a conserve a Tive and yet he continues to plow ahead of All but the other least Likely presidential nominee Ben Carson who has tied skimp in Iowa. Straight talk old hat. Tall and commanding so is Lebron lets elect him. Smart and accomplished born Lucky and benefited from Bank Nitcy. Reporters have turned Over leaves and pebbles in search of clues even recently interview ing faculty at Trumps Alma mater the Wharton school. While demur ring on Trumps politics professors commended his marketing skills a Short sentences simple ideas control of the conversation and therefore the Media. Marketing after All is a system of deceptions organized around a product or idea in this Case Trump to conservatives who either Arentt really conservative or Are willingly seduced because of it just feels so Good to hear ones innermost thoughts expressed so virulently. Into this category Falls Niin pm a recent tirade against Huma Abe Din know i As Hillary Clinton a closest adviser and even better As Anthony weiners wife. Trump liberated his inner Chris Rock calling Weiner a a pervs and mock typing weiners infamous sweets. As his audience guffawed Trump questioned the likelihood of weiners not being privy to classified state department information via his wife. Now that a funny. Chimp does no to care what state secrets Weiner know s. Trump wants people to associate the a perv a with Hillary Clinton. Similarly he wants to associate murderous Legal immigrants with Jeb Bush. A recent Trump Campaign video challenging Bush a immigration comment that people come Here illegally As an a act of love to find work to support their families features three grisly Hombres in the. Illegally who have been charged with murder. One has been convicted. A love a the text reads. A forget love. Its time to get Tough a Genius. Trump is a human handler Extraordinaire a the Jet set equivalent of the Black hatted fellow w to wheeled his cart into Tumbleweed towns. He does no to just sell Snake Oil. He milks the venom from the gathering throng of willing believers then bottles it up and Sells it right Back to them. Delicious with raw meat. There a something curious about this crowd however. Trumps fans Arentt just pokes looking for entertainment. They also include Many w Ell know n conservative purists. How does a staunchly pro life advocate support a Man who was recently pro Choice and who has said albeit w Hen asked that his sister a judge who ruled in favor of Par tial birth abortion would make a a a phenomenal supreme court Justice much of this puzzling support comes from co sen Active talk radio. As Buzz feed posted recently a you can almost listen to pro Trump news All alien answers seem elusive a and overturned pebbles reveal Only dirt and w orm trails a we fall Back on cliches one of which seems especially Apt today follow the Money.

And then one must ask who else owes him fans boast that Chimp is so Rich hell never be Beholden to anyone. Maybe. But just Asim a it Octant who is Beholden to him other politicians members of the Media insiders whisper that some Media folks have received free memberships to Trumps Palm Beach club mar a Lago. Such a gift does no to necessarily buy favourable coverage but one be silly for thinking so. Meanwhile the Imp a kerfuffle with Fox news megyn Kelly seems in retrospect almost to have been manufactured. First Kelly asks a legitimate question about Trumps intemperate remarks about women he attacks she goes on vacation and returns he attacks again. Ratings polls now Fox news hosts Are urging As if Reading from a script that Chimp focus on the issues a because he a soon great on the issues a and leave our megyn alone. Chimp knows he the world Over a barrel. His opponents fear him because he gave them Money. His party fears him because he might run As. An Independent. We should All fear a presidential candidate w to perfumes the air with red meat and is prepared to collect on his debts. Its time for the Imp a fellow candidates to forget love a and get Tough.
