White House says vote on healthcare bill set for 3:30 pm ET

Sean Spicer at White House says the vote will take place but we've seen a few times where the White House isn't the first to know.

He said Trump and Ryan were continuing to talk about the way forward.

"We want to force the vote," a top White House official to said at 1:18pm, according to the Washington Post.

Here's another source: "We want the vote," senior administration official said [quoted by Politico]. "If they want to go against the president, they should do it on live TV."

An Obama Plot To Sabotage Trump?

Devin Nunes just set the cat down among the pigeons.

Two days after FBI Director James Comey assured us there was no truth to President Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped by Barack Obama, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Trump may have had more than just a small point.

The U.S. intelligence community, says Nunes, during surveillance of legitimate targets, picked up the names of Trump transition officials during surveillance of targets, “unmasked” their identity, and spread their names around, virtually assuring they would be leaked.

If true, this has the look and smell of a conspiracy to sabotage the Trump presidency, before it began.
Comey readily confirmed there was no evidence to back up the Trump tweet. But when it came to electronic surveillance of Trump and his campaign, Comey, somehow, could not comment on that.
Which raises the question: What is the real scandal here?

Is it that Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta’s emails and handed them off to WikiLeaks? We have heard that since June.
Is it that Trump officials may have colluded with the Russians?

But former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and ex-CIA Director Mike Morrell have both said they saw no evidence of this.

This March, Sen. Chris Coons walked back his stunning declaration about transcripts showing a Russia-Trump collusion, confessing, “I have no hard evidence of collusion.”
But if Clapper and Morrell saw no Russia-Trump collusion, what were they looking at during all those months to make them so conclude?

Was it “FBI transcripts,” as Sen. Coons blurted out?
If so, who intercepted and transcribed the conversations? If it was intel agencies engaged in surveillance, who authorized that? How extensive was it? Against whom? Is it still going on?
And if today, after eight months, the intel agencies cannot tell us whether or not any member of the Trump team colluded with the Russians, what does that say of their competence?
The real scandal, which the media regard as a diversion from the primary target, Trump, is that a Deep State conspiracy to bring down his presidency seems to have been put in place by Obamaites, and perhaps approved by Obama himself.

Consider. On Jan. 12, David Ignatius of the Washington Post wrote,
“According to a senior U.S. government official, (Gen. Michael) Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials … What did Flynn say?”

Everything the deep state tries, fails, and even better, blows up in their faces.Obama and his ENTIRE administration should be brought up on charges of Treason! this entire eight years was nothing but a trial Coup d'éta tand they almost pulled it off.

The entire education system should be gutted to the bone and redone. The DNC has planted Hardcore liberals with the same ideology's as Obama in every classroom in this country...They need to go!

 As well as the court houses everywhere - it resembles the Gulen tactics in Turkey and a coup de etat

New York Fed bumps up Q1 GDP growth forecast to 3.0%

  • They now see 3.0% in Q1, compared to 2.8% last week
  • See 2.7% for Q2, compared to 2.5% in Q1
"News from this week's data releases had a small positive impact on the nowcasts for both quarters, driven by new home sales data and the advance durable goods report," the report said.

Bullard: We don't need to be pre-emptive on interest rates

If you ask me, the March hike smelt of trying to play catch up.
  • Wouldn't have dissented against March hike
  • 3 hikes this year is potentially overkill
  • Sees a somewhat stronger USD if the Fed gets too aggressive
I disagree on that last point. If the Fed hikes too fast the market will think there's a problem and the buck will fall, not rise.     

The US economy is at a pretty good place right now says Fed's Dudley

  • We're pretty close to both of the Fed's objectives
  • We may have an inflation problem if you push unemployment much lower
Maybe my thoughts on the speed of these hikes holds some water? I doubt the Fed will risk jobs growth just to fight inflation.
  • The economy can absorb the current rate path
  • Economy will be able to adjust just fine
  • Rate rise we've had in place is extraordinarily gradual
  • Fed wants to make policy a little less accommodative
  • We are seeking a soft landing by moving rates a little bit
  • 10 year yields are pretty low
  • Expects fixed income investing to be less attractive going forward since rates are rising
  • The general expectation is for longer-term market rates to rise as the Fed tightens
  • There's been a bond bull market since 1982
Now he's a bond trader.

TRUMP’S WALL = $21.6 billion…ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION = $148.3 billion / year…DO THE MATH!

So tards keep asking, who’s going to pay for the wall? Where is the money going to come from to pay for the wall? Its simple. The wall pays for itself simply by the presence of fewer illegal aliens in country. Just like Reagan’s military spending resulted in a “peace dividend”, which eventually led to budget surpluses a decade later, the Mexican border wall will have a cumulative effect on money not spent, feeding, housing, educating, adjudicating and incarcerating illegal aliens. Mind you that the cost of illegal immigration is estimated to be $148 billion PER YEAR. Even a 1% reduction in the cost of illegal immigration will have the wall paid for in just over a decade.

There are 3 basic types of costs I included in this estimate:
1. Federal Expenses: $31.9 Billion. Expenses incurred at the federal level total $28.6 billion, according to the FAIR report. This number includes things like educational subsidies ($2.1 billion), healthcare costs ($5.9 billion, of which $750 goes to Obamacare subsidies), and justice costs etc.

2. State & Local Costs: $93.3 Billion. This category includes a much broader range of expenses which I won’t go into here. Again, you can get a sense of what this looks like by reading my cost analysis on California. Once adjusted for inflation, as per the Bureau of Labor Statistics calculator, the US government spends roughly $125.2 billion per year on illegal immigrants. This is slightly mitigated by the fact that migrants contribute $14.9 billion in federal, state, and local taxes (inflation-adjusted).

3. Remittances: $38 Billion. The final major category are remittances (money transferred from someone working in the US to their family abroad). For this calculation, I assume that remittances are being sent by first generation immigrants (legal or illegal), and that they are equally likely to remit. I include remittances in my calculation because it’s a financial drain on the country—the money evaporates from the economy, never to be spent domestically or support local businesses. According to Pew Research America lost $133.6 billion in remittances in 2015—$136.9 billion when adjusted for inflation. Given that there are 40 million foreign-born American citizens, and roughly 11.1 million illegal immigrants (again, according to Pew), this means there are 51.1 million people sending remittances.

Report: 9 in 10 Gang Rapists In Sweden Have Foreign Origins

The site claims that in total between 2011 and 2015 there were 125 individuals accused and convicted of participating in group sex attacks. The majority, 41, come from unknown countries outside of Sweden, and they are followed by 23 from Afghanistan and 20 from Sweden itself. The total number of non-Swedes amounts to 105 or around 85 percent.
The site makes a distinction of those accused of true gang rape (participating in sex acts) and those tried along with a rapist for other crimes like failure to disclose the sex attack. Of the “true gang rapes,” they measure 50 such cases.

Here are the names:
