Is Tide Going Out On Hillary?

Submitted by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

Were the election held today, Hillary Clinton would probably win a clear majority of the Electoral College.

Her problem: The election is two months off.

Sixty days out, one senses she has lost momentum — the "Big Mo" of which George H. W. Bush boasted following his Iowa triumph in 1980 — and her campaign is in a rut, furiously spinning its wheels.

The commander in chief forum Wednesday night should have been a showcase for the ex-secretary of state's superior knowledge and experience.

Instead, Clinton looked like a witness before a grand jury, forced to explain her past mistakes and mishandling of classified emails at State.

"Of the two candidates," The New York Times reported, "Mrs. Clinton faced by far the tougher and most probing questions from the moderator, Matt Lauer of NBC, and from an audience of military veterans about her use of private email, her vote authorizing the Iraq war, her hawkish foreign policy views..."

On defense most of the time, Clinton scored few points.

And with a blistering attack on Lauer, the Times all but threw in the towel and conceded that the Donald won the night.

"Moderator of Clinton-Trump Forum Fields A Storm of Criticism," was the headline as analyst Michael Grynbaum piled on:

"Mr. Lauer found himself besieged on Wednesday evening by critics of all political stripes, who accused the anchor of unfairness, sloppiness, and even sexism in his handling of the event."

What Happens When The "Fed Model" Breaks Down

With stocks having reached nosebleed valuations which clearly make no sense, which event bullish pundits slam as absurd, and which every single bank has thrown up on and is urging clients to sell into what has clearly been a relentless central bank bid, there has been just one justification for the stratospheric prices attained by equities: the so-called Fed model, which argues that all that is needed for stocks to be high is for them to be cheap relative to bond yields, or in other words, the lowers global bond yields are, the higher stocks can levitate, completely dislocated from fundamentals.

Naturally, it is this dislocation that has forced so many hedge funds to face the greatest redemption wave since the crisis, or throw in the towel altogether, as this particular "model" is nothing more than a economic justification for an asset bubble, in this case one inflated by central banks who have created the biggest bond and stock bubble in history courtesy of some $2.5 trillion in annual liquidity injections...

... or as we called it, a slow-motion LBO of equity markets courtesy of central banks.

But what happens when the ...

Dell Fires 3000 US Employees, Requests 5000 Visas For Foreign Workers

Submitted by Wolf Richter via WolfStreet.com,

Trying to find efficiencies and synergies to save $1.7 billion.

The ink was barely dry on Dell's acquisition of EMC, the largest technology deal ever, valued at $67 billion when it was announced in October last year - and already the layoff rumors are oozing from the woodwork.

"People familiar with the company's plans" told Bloomberg that Dell will cut 2,000 to 3,000 jobs.

Dell spokesman Dave Farmer refused to comment specifically on the report on Thursday but said instead, as sort of a confirmation: "As is common with deals of this size, there will be some overlaps we will need to manage and where some employee reduction will occur."

On Wednesday, the day the deal closed, CEO Michael Dell gave some clues in an interview: "There are some overlapping functions and that sort of thing - that's not the primary feature of this, but there is some of that."

These "overlaps" or "overlapping functions" are terms in corporate speak for real people, and these real people are mostly working in the US, according to the report: supply chain, marketing, and g ...
