CNN leaked debate questions to Hillary; thinks it’s scary that Dow hits all-time highs after Trump win

With 6 successive days of increases, the stock market clearly approves of the result of the historic election of 2016.

Fred Impert reports for CNBC that investors and traders quickly honed into Trump’s economic policies, which could lead to higher infrastructure spending and less regulation within financials.

Here’s how the stock market and other economic indices performed since Trump was elected:

  • Last week was a record-setting one for the Dow, as it hit new all-time highs and posted its best weekly performance since 2011. Yesterday, the Dow hit an all-time high, gaining 21 points.
  • The S&P and Nasdaq posted their highest weekly gains since 2013 and February, respectively.
  • The Russell 2000, which is composed of small-cap stocks, hit its first record high since June 2015.
  • The rally in stocks has come simultaneously with a sharp sell-off in U.S. Treasuries, sending yields soaring. As of 2:51 p.m. ET yesterday, the two-year note yield traded at 0.972%, while the benchmark 10-year yield gained around 10 basis points to 2.219%, its highest level since Dec. 31, 2015. Robert Pavilk, chief market strategist at Boston Private Wealth, expects even higher yields in the long-term.
  • The U.S. dollar has also soared, trading 1.03% higher at 100.07 against a basket of currencies. The euro fell around 1% to $1.073 and the yen dropped more than 1.5% to 108.44. Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said: “Dollar bullish investors stole the show during trading on Monday with the Dollar Index surging to eleven-month highs at 100.00 as expectations intensified over the Federal Reserve raising US interest rates in December” which is good news for savers. Otunuga observed, “The Dollar’s appreciation was complimented with optimism towards Trump’s administration bolstering spending and reviving inflation, a move seen as supporting economic growth in the States.”

Kim Forrest, senior equity analyst at Fort Pitt Capital, said, “Investors clearly are optimistic.” Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank, said, “At this point, investors are trying to price in what’s going to happen. I think there is a possibility for change, … but how much he [Trump] can actually do remains to be seen.”

Meanwhile, CNN or the Clinton News Network, manages to see only negatives in the stock performance.

While noting that “The Dow jumped nearly 600 points — a 3.2% gain — in the three days after Trump’s victory” and “was up again Monday and hit a new all-time high in the process,” and pointing out the obvious — that “There remains a great deal of uncertainty over what type of president Trump will actually be” — the conclusion of CNN’s Paul R. La Monica is:

“That is scary.”

What’s “scary” is how CNN remains unrepentant and unregenerate in its in-your-face pro-Hillary bias. Why, CNN even fed debate questions in advance to Hillary Clinton’s people, as shown in two email exchanges between longtime Democrat Party apparatchik Donna Brazile and Hillary’s campaign officials, all published by WikiLeaks.

Donna Brazile

At the time of the leakage, Brazile was a commenter on CNN. On July 24, 2016, Brazile replaced DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz after WikiLeaks emails revealed Wasserman Schultz had plotted to sabotage Hillary’s Democratic Primary rival Bernie Sanders. See:

Here’s the first email from then CNN commenter Donna Brazile, in which she leaked in advance a question that would be asked in the CNN-hosted Democratic Primary Debate on March 6, 2016:

Subject: One of the questions directed to HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] tomorrow is from a woman with a rash

Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl [people] of Flint [Michigan].

Sure enough, at the debate the next day, Hillary was asked that question from audience member Mikki Wade whose family was affected by the poisoned water.

The second email was dated March 12, 2016, with its subject as “From time to time I get the questions in advance,” in which Brazile leaked a debate question on the death penalty:

On Mar 12, 2016, at 4:39 PM, Donna Brazile <donna@brazileassociates.com> wrote:

Here’s one that worries me about HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton].

DEATH PENALTY

19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?

Surprise! – not. In a CNN town hall debate the following day, Hillary received the question about the death penalty verbatim from an audience member.

Brazile has since denied receiving or furnishing the Clinton campaign with any town hall questions, and dismissed the Wikileaks organization as “sad ass whipper leakers [trying] to destroy [her] groove.”

The publishing of Brazile’s emails by WikiLeaks resulted in Brazile’s “resignation” from CNN on October 14, 2016, with CNN saying: “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.” (Source: Wikipedia)

  2. CNN thinks it is “Scary”, because CNN & the other LibTARD Media Propagandized that Trumps election would mean economic collapse.
    Maybe “economic collapse” for Crony Capitalists that get huge Grants for Glo-bull Warming research and “Green Energy Projects” that don’t work.

    If there is hope for a business friendly govt, the “working capital” will come out of hiding and start creating jobs again. A simple step on the road to MAGA!

    CNN finds this “Scary!”, because it proves they are irrelevant as “news”, only a lying LibTARD anti-American Propaganda outlet. The Media Moguls are losing their asses. But only fair because the lost their minds supporting Killery & Obozo against America.

    Murdoch better get his head out of his ass, or Faux Snooze is going to join the “Big 4” in a popularity Death Spiral. He needs to to put a muzzle on Megyn (and some adult clothes), or just sell her to CNN. Make everybody happy.

    Good riddance!

  4. I think it’s scary as long as o’bama is on the loose.
    Trump hasn’t taken over yet. o’bama can still do bad stuff. Since his big agenda was, and probably still is, to “fundamentally change the US” and since there’s still Soros and others who want to destroy the USA, I have to wonder if this big stock gain isn’t real but like a dam ready to burst.
    Could it be that the elites got the sheeple to help raise it so the elites can cash out high and then destroy it? If I hadn’t already cashed out most of mine, I’d be doing it now.

  5. Great News on Media trust! Scales fall from the eyes of the Sheeple like a snow-storm!
    http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nb-staff/2016/11/15/mrcyougov-poll-most-voters-saw-rejected-news-media-bias
    Key findings:

    7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
    8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
    Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
    8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
    97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.

    Perhaps the “Great Awakening” is actually started!

  6. I hope no one believes those record market numbers are capable of improving the productive economy or putting anyone but laid off financial parasites back to work. Twenty-three percent of America’s working men and women in their prime earning years are still out of work according to shadowstats, and the supposed benefit from further decreases in financial regs cited in the article as an economic stimulus will cause the opposite and make it much worse for the 99%. It’s as true today as it’s ever been that there are no markets, only manipulation. Wall Street no longer finances capital investment. What it does is finance the blood-sucking corporate raiders who divert profits from increased production and wages to themselves until the corporate target is sucked dry. Destroying Wall St’s power, jailing the perpetrators, clawing back the assets stripped from our industries, and lifting the rock off the cockroaches running the Fed are the sine qua non for even the hope of real economic recovery. Congress will no more do any of this on their own than change their spots and start representing the people who elected them.

    • Good grief, Dan, lighten up, will ya? The 3 indices of the stock market, U.S. Treasury yields, and the dollar are indicative of people’s psychology — their rising confidence, on which will be built actual economic performance and betterment of the 99%.

      • Yes! Many small businesses that are successful enough to survive the ObamaNation, when their confidence builds and the ObamaCare threat is relaxed, will create jobs. People with saving that they have been hoarding in fear will start enjoying their wealth again. When the Illegals start leaving and the huge drain of exported cash and the welfare costs, and the jobs being offered to Americans will all help.
        It will be slow, but with Christmas coming, and improved Consumer Confidence, it should start to improve.

  7. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this great post. The behavior of CNN and like news agencies shows their bad faith towards the American people which is supported by their unrepentant and clear support of Hilary Clinton which resulted in a bias maintained throughout all of news reporting during the election. This is absolutely shameful.
