Anonymous @Leon Armstrong's fund blew up and he ran a ponzi scheme to try and hide the losses. Thats why he was convicted. He conveniently rebranded himself to an anti-gov audience with a ridiculous claim that the gov "wanted his computer."

@Leon yes, I've read this before. He makes certainly some good points too think about reg. politics and developments in our societies but I don't like his constant self-adulation and his know-it-all-better attitude.

@Leon #WikiLeaks exposes CIA involvement in the 2012 French presidential election. The espionage orders published today are classified and restricted to U.S.eyes only due to "Friends-on-Friends sensitivities". It also places weight on obtaining the candidates attitudes to the EU's economic crisis, centering around their position on the still ongoing Greek debt crisis; the role of France and Germany in it and the vulnerability of government and banks to a Greek default and specific "proposals and recommendations" to deal with "the euro-zone crisis". How wonderful if good friends look after you in difficult times ;-) #gold #politics #economy www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-16/wikileaks-exposes-cia-involvement-french-2012-presidential-election

@Leon In 2011 Dominique Strass-Kahn was well on track to become #France's next president. As Head of the #IMF he sharply critiqued corrupt American bankers and banking practices and early on, predicted the collapse of the mortgage market. He was close to negotiating a #European Union bail-out for #Greece - So who profited from the charade in destroying DSK's reputation? #politics #economy #Euro www.newsjunkiepost.com/2011/07/01/dominique-strauss-kahn-innocent-so-whos-guilty/

@Leon Apart from the #Trump tweets, nothing, absolutely nothing will happen in an instant .. no short-term tax-reform without the approval of congress, no infrastructure measures without a raised debt-ceiling, no border wall without a public works planning procedure, including hearings, compensation settlements and probably actions against it .. on February 28th congress will get informed officially how this is all going to happen .. and when.

@Leon One of the main questions in such one-sided discussions should be: would Americans do the jobs of the "illegal population" in the garbage industry, house-keeping, gardening, construction business etc. and / or pay higher salaries to their own folks?

@Leon According to the Swiss Eidgenössische Zollverwaltung, China bought in December 2016 158 tons of gold for CHF 5.8 billion (Nov: 30.6 tons / Dec.2015: 57 tons). Switzerland has a population of 8.3 million people ("foreigners" 24.6% !) and is one of the most important players in the #gold sector, its refineries are processing ~70% /year of global production. www.handelszeitung.ch/konjunktur/china-deckt-sich-mit-schweizer-gold-ein-1344182 www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/de/home/statistiken/bevoelkerung.html

@Leon 2,514,000 people = 36% of the whole Swiss population have a migration history. 1/3 of these people are now citizens of Switzerland (874,000 people). 1/5 have been born in Switzerland, 1,455,000 (= 70%) were born in foreign countries. www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/de/home/statistiken/bevoelkerung/migration-integration/nach-migrationsstatuts.html

@Leon @bluesteele - nothing wrong with that, though its a philosophical discussion as one can see from labour statistics. It's easier said than done to bring unemployed back to work. One reason is they need an "up-date" and further education to get things done in the right way. Another major factor is they got lazy and have difficulties to integrate themself well motivated into the labour process. This whole idea of bringing jobs back to the U.S. and the American people misses some important issues like lack of education, labour skills, factory sites, building / production costs, technological progress, global supply chain, economic decline, impacts on inflation, disposable personal income etc, just to name a few #politics #economy

@bluesteele @Leon these are "legal" immigrants you are referring to in Switzerland?... Your argument is totally off base. What if 1/4 of Switzerland had immigrants that arrived in your country by "illegal means" and were putting natural born Swiss residents out of work by doing the same jobs for half the wage rate under the table, ie no taxes going back to the government. This would be a huge drain to your economy and put a massive finacial burden on the legal citizens of your country.

@Leon @bluesteele - Europe is facing massive "illegal" immigration at the moment and I don't want to go further into that topic here on ceo - please read my forementioned remarks as an adequate answer to your post.

@bluesteele @Leon that's not what we were discussing here, you are now deflecting. You're argument that legal immigrants in Switzerland is the same as the situation of illegal immigrants in the US is a total joke!

@rangerbentman @Leon @bluesteele I was laid off work 2 years ago and replaced with someone being paid a bit less than half my wage. This is the new reality wherein employers can get cheaper labor in Canada . There will always be this kind of job replacement happening , however in the US of A they have labor standards, some equivalent of Work Safe ,minimum wages, and they have a lot of people who feel they are entitled to high wages and a better quality of life. This does not bode well with Trump's lets get America working again plan. BTW after finding Ceo.c by chance, I have been very happy to have been laid off.

@Leon @rangerbentman - it's unfortunately a global appearance. Even in governmental jobs here in Europe you get nowadays just temporary work. If you get ill or whatever, you are out .. that's why they employ mostly freelancer without paying them health-insurances or pensions etc., avoiding further payments into the welfare system. It's a very challenging time for all of us worldwide. So take good care of yourself ;-)

@Leon @bluesteele - is it too late for you to read my post in the right way? I wrote "Europe is facing massive ILLEGAL immigration. Anyway, you are right. You certainly know more about the situtaion in Europe as I do. Enjoy your weekend wherever you are.

@bluesteele @Leon you were touting Switzerland as an example of immigration and the contribution of immigrants to a functional economy. It was only when I pointed out the fact that these were "legal" immigrants that you decided to mention Europe which has no bearing to what we were discussing.

@Leon @bluesteele - sometimes it can be very helpful to look over the wall of perception and not only for scapegoats in ones closest environment. That's why I brought in the example of Switzerland, a country of 8,3 million people, 2,5 million with a migration background and mentioned the current ILLEGAL immigration in Europe with its weight on the supportive welfare system. Trump is driving the U.S. against the wall and many people will turn against him after they've realized he's not different and fulfills the same agenda like his predecessors. But again, I wish you personally all the best, though I don't see much further need to bring in my toughts and ideas to such biased issues..

@bluesteele @Leon I disagree I think Trump is attempting to reign in a country that is currently a total mess! If he is able to accomplish this seemingly impossible task the US will re-affirm it's position as the global leader and they will erect statues of him in his honor. Let's not forget this guy does not need the job he's already a multi billionaire, the man truly has a passion to help the American people. You can see this in his speeches and his actions as he continues to reign in companies with plans to build factories outside of the US. This however is seemingly lost by the narrative of the liberal media. If Trump fails in his attempt to right the country the US is toast in my opinion and will continue to be bled slowly by it's competitors.

@Leon This forum becomes even more weird by the day - now the racist gatestone articles kick off discussions about rapists - no wonder that Trump has taken the lead with his anti-immigrant song and gives hate and anger a legal ground. I wonder against whom the Trumponimics are turning their anger if they realize there will be no tax-reform before 2018, and infrastructure measures and stupid and useless walls will only increase the national indebtedness and raise interest payments but are not producing any income, there's no return on infrastructure measures and border protection costs !! Nada, niente, no profit!

@Leon Even with vigorous training, the vast majority of America's middle-class cannot transition easily into the types of jobs created new in the U.S. Moreover, fully automated trucks could put half of Americas truckers out of a job within a decade and people in the service industry as well as McDonald's shows already with its Burger machines. #economy www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-17/why-president-trump-does-not-tweet-about-automation

@nobshere @Leon We all know Trumps knowledge about international events/history is not very much. We all know many of the things he wants to put into place are/ will be hard to accomplish for not only has he the dems against him. also the rep establishment is against him He also has to deal with 17 intel agencies who run a govt within a govt So, lets give him some slack ...instead of this constant trying to parse his sentences like the media likes to do. He is not a politician u know those smooth talkers where u have to sit back and say...what did he just say

@Leon @anon - No! I have a German passport, went to school in Florence /Italy. I'm living in Spain and Germany as well with my partner from England. Have studied economics and own a Master in Science. I'm interested in asian philosophy. Have no sympathy neither to Merkels immigration policy nor to Brussels bureaucracy ..well does that serve your need to put me into a drawer that would help you with your judgements and make you feel better about your own politically biased and onesided ideological thinking, dividing people between "us" and "them"?

@Leon @nobshere - it is not about Trump. Trump is just the puppet to fulfill a political agenda! People are being used to divide the socitey between "us" and "them", between the left - thinking they have to fight fascism- and the right - thinking they make a change for the better in draining an imaginary swamp, Trump has already filled massively with his Goldman Sachs cronies. The Flynn debacle has made it very obvious, the game is over before it has began and the hearing on February 28th will make it even clear to the most blinded, there'll be no reform of the political agenda!

@Leon @anonymus - why should I have said "yes" on your question if I'm a liberal from the U.S.? As I mentioned before .. this side becomes really weird and I guess I should leave you people alone with your ideas about economics and political impact. .. and what are you writing about neat tricks and modifying my post .. I go over them to correct the typos.

@nobshere @Leon Most of them were puppets and I think Trump is resisting thusly the media bias. Why he brought in the banksters I don't understand but it could be because of the massive debt he needed them for who else understands the financial markets better ...just a thought--and naturally ? he will watch them carefully

@Leon @nobshere . yes, that's worth a thought to bring in experienced bankers into the government .. but you know, there's the House / Congress that have to be convinced and they have to approve further debts and taxes and so on. However, I see that my remarks are making people just angry and they are not open for different views from a European thinker :-)

@barracuda @Leon Gasoline exports from USGC are because of Eagle Ford and Permian production. This production is pipelined to the US Gulf refiners. Also a lot of this crude is being directly transshipped to Canada for refining. The US crude going to Canada is refined in Canada and then sent to US East Coast markets.
