Jackson Hole – What Have We Learned?

by Bob Eisenbeis
Financial Sense

Chair Yellen’s much-awaited Jackson Hole speech has been touted in the media as suggesting that there will soon be a second rate hike to follow the FOMC’s December 2015 move. However, many have noted that there was actually little, if anything, new in the speech. She did note that there was continued improvement in the economy, especially on the employment front. Some suggest that a possible move in September would hinge upon the release of the next employment number for August, and some of the FOMC participants in attendance noted that all meetings were still live.

John Rubino – Get the Fed Over With

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino returns… Yellen has made her speech and the other Fed Governors contradicted her, thereby cancelling her out, net result is nothing. So who knows what evil lurks in the heart of central bankers? Monetary policy has been a multi-decade catastrophe. Now that the stock market is too big to fail, they must be extremely careful what they say. So it was good for a week and now the pop is over. The party is over and reality is back. There’s no there, there. So now it’s on to the next Fed meeting.

Next Time the World Ends, It’ll Be a Bigger Shock Than We Expect, Warns Jim Rogers

Critical intelligence before the U.S. market opens

by Shawn Langlois
Market Watch

Now that the Jackson Hole hoopla is behind us, traders can exhale and move on to the next order of business, which, incidentally, isn’t all that different from the previous order of business: Fretting about interest rates.

Or, specifically, as Jeff Miller of the Dash of Insight blog asks in his weekly preview: Will the Fed get the signal to hike rates? The answer, he says, lies in the next crop of economic data, which will certainly get “special scrutiny” this week.

Of course, extra special scrutiny will be reserved for the end of the week, when we get the August employment number. Until then, there’s more than a few notable reports to keep us occupied (more on that in the “The economy” section).

Department of Homeland Security Has Surprise for Bernie Supporters at DNC Lawsuit Hearing

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Mavi Ramierez is a Mom, a social media entrepreneur and a dedicated citizen journalist who took a day off from work to cover the first hearing on August 23 in the Federal lawsuit that has been filed by Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters against the Democratic National Committee and its former Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The lawsuit, which currently has more than 100 plaintiffs and more than a thousand in the wings with retainer agreements, is charging the DNC with fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive conduct, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence.

Leaked DNC documents and emails by Guccifer 2.0 and Wikileaks show Wasserman Schultz disparaging the Sanders’ campaign while key DNC officials actually plotted to sabotage the Sanders’ campaign by putting the word out that he is an atheist (which Sanders says he is not) and characterizing his campaign as “a mess.” From a virtual unknown on the national stage, Sanders’ campaign won 23 states in the primaries, raised over $228 million, predominantly from average Americans, and held rallies that ranged from 5,000 to more than 20,000 supporters while Clinton attracted hundreds. Sanders’ supporters are demanding this court case to determine if the intentional sabotage by the DNC cost Sanders’ his primary battle.

Hillary Did Not Say Alt.Media Had ‘No Right to Exist’ – But Maybe She Has a New Ban Plan

by Daily Bell Staff
The Daily Bell

Hillary Clinton’s Attack on Breitbart News is an Attack on Press Freedom … Hillary Clinton has a new target in her campaign against Donald Trump: Breitbart News. Her goal is not just to use Breitbart as a political foil, but to shut the site down entirely. Deputy communications director Christina Reynolds sent a fundraising email earlier this week claiming that while other conservative news outlets had a “right to exist,” Breitbart News did not. – Breitbart

Hillary’s recently fundraising email has attracted huge coverage in the media. But when one actually reads the text of the email, it is at least questionable as to whether she (or her deputy director who signed the letter) meant exactly what Breitbart (above) states.

Breitbart’s execs and journos feel understandably attacked, but their reporting, nonetheless, presents what seems to us as one interpretation.

Other articles and YouTube commentaries have gone further than the Breitbart article, presenting the statement as if it had said outright that Breitbart (and thus other alternative media) generally had no right to exist.

US Slams Turkish Bombing Of American Coalition Partners As “Unacceptable And A Source Of Deep Concern”

from Zero Hedge

Things are turning increasingly sour for the US, which is barely able to keep track of which feuding factions it supports in the escalating Syrian war.

Recall that over the weekend we reported how “Joe Biden Humiliated In Turkish “Appeasement” As Erdogan Bombs US Allies In Syria.” Concerned by Turkey’s recent overtures toward Russia, which even hinted at military cooperation between Moscow and Ankara, Biden arrived in Turkey last Wednesday, just as Turkey sent tanks into northern Syria, with nothing but appeasement for the Turkish president whose unprecedented crackdown on human rights has left over 100,000 Turks arrested, terminated, or otherwise “purged.” Meeting with Erdogan and Turkey’s prime minister in Ankara, Biden delivered a message of alliance and conciliation: “Let me say it for one last time: The American people stand with you … Barack Obama was one of the first people you called. But I do apologize. I wish I could have been here earlier,” Biden said.

Merkel’s “We Can Do It” Scorecard: 54 Refugees Find Employment at Germany’s Biggest 30 Companies

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
Mish Talk

Last year, over one million refugees poured into Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel said,“Wir schaffen das” — “We can do it.”

These refugees were supposed to start an economic boom.

The actual results show far more German women were raped or assaulted by the refugees than found employment at the thirty largest German companies.
