The State of Investing in "America's Recession" today

The United States in once again in a serious reality of recession making stocks tumble, real estate depreciates, housing foreclosures and devaluation of the US dollar, commodities and tangible assets alike.

Such perils were brought about by the long ordeal on the Iraq war, housing and credit crisis together with financial bank failures recently. As the Federal Reserve desperately tries all measures on injecting money into the system while creating inflation, another stimulus package is being debated in the House of Congress. With the onset of these events inter-related with the coming presidential elections, americans are having a difficulty to think that this is just a "normal" trend in the economy

Yet there are sauvy investors who can convert these into buying opportunities for stocks, ETF's and other investments. The trend today is merging towards ETF's which is now the equivalent of mutual funds as years before. Being a bull market, short term bonds are more easliy disposable than long term bonds.

Nevertheless, we should watch the prices of gas frequently and as well as other commodities. Markets unfortunately are very tricky and can be misleading sometimes so the best way is knowing what your are really investing into than just what we think it is or should be.

Should there be a real recovery, gas and oil should stabilize while some commodity prices go up.
The key is remembering the relevance of commodities together with the stock market as it is always the commodities which are the economic indicators than stocks.

Either one is a small or big time investor, it is always wise to ask what is my purpose of investing, how does it affect my life purposes and not what the money purpose is? An intelligent investor knows that when he/she invest, it has something to do with what they want to develop in their lives. Hence it is a question for oneself not a question for the financial planners and stock brokers.

America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.

The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.

Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.
