Trump Files Lawsuit In Nevada Alleging "Intentional Coordination With Democratic Activists"

Headlines are starting to come in that the Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit against the Clark County Registrar's Office in Nevada for keeping polls open yesterday for two additional hours beyond their closing time. According to NBC, Nevada law allows for people in line at the time the polls close to vote, but the Trump campaign is alleging that others were also allowed to vote even though they arrived well after the polls closed.

While details are very sparse at this time, a Clark County spokesman has responded simply that "if there's a line when closing time comes, we just keep processing voters until there's no more line."

Criminal Clinton Mafia allowed on ticket exposes Shadow masters: One Dollar, One Vote

We've been covering a topic for years that we have tried to elaborate in our book "Splitting Pennies - Understanding Forex" that the world is controlled by a secretive group of powerful "Elites" behind the scenes, what some call the "Shadow Government" and what others call "Illuminati" or just "Rockefellers." For the greater majority of people, they believe only what they see on TV. So when communicating with such people, obviously - they think we are crazy. But due to the way the programming works (exploitation of reptilian brain, via the amygdala) it also makes them irrational, and when showing facts to them or reasoning logically they can become emotional and even violent. It's like Dogma vs. Reason, the paradoxical conflict to which there is really no solution. So how do we know about this? Because in Forex, sometimes you see things that just aren't possible otherwise. Forex isn't like other markets, there's no transparency, there's not anything like there is in futures, bonds, or stocks. So let's elaborate on one example, which is a good Forex example for this election; George Soros.

What this election has done - it's brought all the facts to bear for the public to see via Wikileaks. So people who are voting for Clinton - they are voting for a criminal enterprise. Clinton is not the 'head' of this enterprise, but a public representative, a puppet, a "consigliere." Never before has so much evidence been brought forth, in plain site, in black and white. If you haven't done so already - have a peek in the emails here at Wikileaks.

The Truth about George Soros

George Soros is not so mysterious like many have been led to believe. He's really hated in much of the world and often blamed for political upheaval, currency crisis, and a number of other things. ...

"Massive" 'Smart-Money' Bond Short Completely Unwound

Via Dana Lyons' Tumblr,

The massive "smart money" bond short has been completely unwound.

In late June, we wrote a post suggesting why perhaps the long-term, and long-doubted, bull market in bonds could be in jeopardy. The thesis admittedly revolved substantially around anecdotal evidence pointing to a new-found bullish consensus toward bonds. But after at least a decade in which most market participants thought the only possible path for interest rates was higher, the widespread resignation to "lower for longer" seemed to be a watershed change of opinion. And that change of consensus opinion was what we believed could pave the way for a long-term reversal in interest rates.

In the shorter-term, it was an objective piece of evidence that pointed to the upside being the path of least resistance for rates. Specifically, from the CFTC's Committment Of Traders (COT) report on futures positioning, we noted that Commercial Hedgers had just moved to their largest net short position in Treasury Bond futures in 18 years. And as we continued in the post,

"Commercial Hedgers have been given the moniker of "smart money". This typically brings about plenty of questions and confusion when we discuss this topic. It is not that these Hedgers are always right, or smart. They do what their name implies, i.e., hedge. They are, again, taking the other side of positions held by Non-Commercial Speculator firms, e.g., commodity funds, hedge funds,etc.

These Speculators are typically trend-followers so they will generally add to longs as p ...

2 Florida Election Officials Fired For Not Adhering To "Procedure And Policy"

Two election clerks in Pompano Beach were reportedly fired and removed on Election Day. As reports, Broward Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to keep the peace at the polling location after the disturbance.

Broward election officials said two clerks were fired because they did not adhere to "procedure and policy," but would not elaborate about the circumstances surrounding the disturbance.

Election officials said the clerks were replaced by an assistant clerk.

The incident was the first on Election Day in South Florida. Officials in Miami-Dade and Broward counties reported that everything was running smoothly at the polls.

But that was not the only problem in Florida today. Another incident was reported in Palm Beach County. Jupiter police said Republican supporters were passing out campaign material when a voter got upset.

WPBF reports that a man and a woman exchanged words and got into an altercation after the man went inside to vote and came back out.

"She's talking to somebody else and says, 'That's little man. Yeah. That's a little man,' and a derogatory term that I will won't repeat on TV," Tom Garrecht said.

Republican supporter Donna Tatlici told reporters that Garrecht charged at her.

"(She) ...
