Aussie Apartment Meltdown As Chinese Walking Away

Apartment meltdown looming as Chinese think of walking away. Australia faces the potential of Chinese walking away from apartment settlements at the rate of between $1 billion and $1.5 billion a month for a year or two, according to The Australian columnist Robert Gottliebsen.

"In the worst case scenario a large number of apartment developers go to the wall taking with them many unsecured suppliers," he wrote. He advised that Sydney’s Harry Triguboff went into the crisis without debt and can cushion the impact on the city. "Melbourne and to a lesser extent the already depressed Brisbane will feel the full force of any disaster," the veteran columnist advised.

He added that much was being done to reduce or avoid the above scenario taking place. He said that the Australian apartment developments are in three baskets: First, those being developed by large well-capitalised enterprises like Meriton or the listed apartment developer. Second, those being developed by developers with big Chinese backing and funded by Chinese banks. They are highly leveraged. Third, developers funded by Australian banks.

Donald Trump’s 28-point Contract With America

28 Things Donald Trump Promises to Do as President: Donald Trump is laying out delivered a long list of things he would do if elected president. During an appearance in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, he vows to act on them in the first 100 days in office.

“On November Eighth, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities, and honesty to our government,” Trump says. “This is my pledge to you and if we follow these steps we will once more have a government of, by and for the people and importantly we will make America great again. Believe me.”

Here is the list of the “Contract with the American Voter” policies detailed by Trump:

Civil War In Australia: Turnbull Vs Abbott

Controversial ADLER Shotgun.
Turnbull vs Abbott: the war is on. Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott are in a brawl of mutually assured destruction, with the wounded Prime Minister having the most to lose. Turnbull yesterday publicly suggested Abbott was a liar, and then Abbott blasted back.

First, the real context: the latest Essential poll has the Turnbull Government dropping behind Labor by 47 per cent to 53. That's dangerously low. Second, Turnbull badly needed this week to be about how he was close to finally clinching a signature victory - a vote in Parliament to create a new watchdog to tame rogue building unions. (Leave aside that this was something designed and prepared by Abbott.)

But then the whole week was destroyed for Turnbull with reports that he had discussed trading guns for votes with Senator David Leyonhjelm - with Abbott then weighing in to say how "disturbed" he was by this news.

Money Printing, Stagflation, & War At Federal Reserve

The woman who prints 16 Trillion US$ so far.
Janet Yellen could be on the verge of starting a 'civil war' at the Fed: Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's interest in running a "high-pressure economy" threatens to add to an increasingly divisive climate at the U.S. central bank.

In remarks last week that jarred the market, Yellen ruminated about the benefits of letting inflation run a little hotter than normal while allowing the unemployment rate to drop below the point that historically would trigger Fed tightening action. (Which means she will keep on printing trillions of US$ to lower the interest rates.)

To many observers, the comments were a clearly dovish signal that she favors a lower-for-longer approach when it comes to interest rates. But that kind of attitude could exacerbate tensions among Federal Open Market Committee members, in particular those who have been clamoring for rate hikes.

"Despite the fact that rates were not raised at the September FOMC meeting as we predicted, the truce at Federal Reserve has never been more tenuous and appears to be on the verge of an outright civil war," Doug Roberts, chief investment strategist at Channel Capital Research, said in a note. "The truce between hawks and doves is now being renegotiated."

Rigged US Elections: Hacked Voting Machines

15-yrs-old voting machines still running on
the Windows-XP the obsoleted O/S.
It's the old adage. It doesn't matter who votes. It matters who counts the votes. It probably was an infamous quote from late Venezuelar dictator Chavez who said that. CONFIRMED by Experts! Voting Machines in Maryland, Illinois Rigged to Support Democrats.

First, it was reported that a Republican candidate running in Chicago, Illinois tried to vote for himself… Only to have the electronic Diebold voting machine cast a vote for his opponent. Unlike paper ballots, computers are only as good as the programmers setting up software, and are always open to the possibility of hackers.

Now, there is more confirmation that Democrats are working with local, partisan board of election bureaucrats to rig machines in the same way. In Maryland, where far-left Gov. Martin O’Malley – a Presidential hopeful – is in charge, it has been comfirmed by experts that Democrats are getting a little extra “help” in the midterm elections:

Voting machines that switch Republican votes to Democrats are being reported in Maryland. “When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose — a Republican — but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it,” Donna Hamilton said.

Pakistani Links To Rohingya Terrorists “Deep-Rooted”

Rohingya terrorists of Aqa Mul Mujahideen (AMM).
Myanmar President Htin Kyaw's statement blaming a little-known Rohingya militant group “Aqa Mul Mujahideen” for the recent attacks on Myanmar border outposts and its Pakistan links has not surprised Indian and Bangladesh intelligence. They say the Myanmar president - and the country's intelligence - has got it right.

Senior officials in Indian intelligence, who have closely followed the Rohingya armed militancy for decades, told Mizzima that the Aqa Mul Mujahideen (AMM) leaders were indeed trained in Pakistan.

"Later they recruited Rohingya youths in Rakhine and trained them in jungle bases on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border," said one official of India's Military Intelligence, who preferred not to be named. He said that AMM is a new armed group that originated from the Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami-Arakan (HUJI-A) which enjoys close relations with the Pakistan Taliban.

Betting Predicts Trump Will Win Presidency BREXIT Style

The betting pattern that signals a Trump presidency isn't as remote as the world thinks: William Hill slashes odds on Trump victory amid betting patterns eerily reminiscent of those seen in the lead up to the EU referendum. The bookmaker cuts odds on a Trump win from 11-2 to 4-1 over the past two days after a betting surge. It is news that will strike fear into the hearts of perhaps half of America and large chunks of the world outside of it. 

Despite a calamitous week of campaigning, betting markets on the US election are almost a mirror image of those on Britain’s EU referendum at this stage. And they could be pointing to a victory for Donald Trump. Bookmaker William Hill says 71 per cent of the money so far staked is for Democrat Hillary Clinton. But 65 per cent of the bets by number are for the controversial Republican.

That means a lot more punters are putting smaller bets on Trump, almost exactly the same pattern as was seen in the run up to the Brexit vote when the money was for Remain but the majority of bets were for Leave.

The bookie has cut the odds on a Trump victory from 11-2 to 4-1 over the past two days in response to a surge in bets for the reality TV star and businessman turned politician. It comes despite a campaign bedevilled and derailed by ugly accusations of sexual abuse on the part of Trump from a growing list of women, together with his claims that the election is somehow being “rigged”.

Rigged US Elections: 4 Million Dead & Illegal Are Voting

Elections Expert: “We Now Have 4 Million Ineligible and Dead Voters on American Voter Rolls”. Elections expert J. Christian Adams told FOX and Friends on Tuesday morning there are 4 million dead people on US voter rolls.

Adams, who was the Voting Section Attorney at the US Department of Justice, filed six suits in the past year against Philadelphia and Broward County, Florida where the voter rolls are corrupted. Adams said he had one case in Texas where the person died in 1944. Far left groups continually sue to keep the voter rolls the way they are. The Obama administration has no desire to clean up these voter rolls.

J. Christian Adams said, “Dead people are voting and it’s something this administration does not want to do anything about. They must like it. They must like who they are voting for… Now we have four million, four million Steve, ineligible and dead voters on American voter rolls according to the Pew Charitable Trust.”

Bangladesh’s Ruling Party Units Run By RSO Rohingyas

RSO controls Awami League units on Border. 
Banned Myanmarese insurgent group Rohingya Solidarity Organisation (RSO) has gradually placed their key figures in the ruling Awami League’s Naikkhyangchhari area unit in the Bandarban District bordering Myanmar's troubled Arakan State.

Their dominance has risen so high that the different units of the Awami League (AL) including Chhatra League, Jubo League, Sechchasebak League and Krishak League are led by the Rohingyas, who are allegedly involved in anti-state activities, locals and a number of AL leaders told the Dhaka Tribune.

The RSO, which reportedly has ties with banned militant group Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) and key BNP-ally Jamaat-e-Islami, recently increased its activities by targeting poor Rohingyas in the remote hilly areas and tactfully providing them with food, shelter and training. Afghan instructors were also reported to have been seen at the RSO camps.

According to credible sources, the RSO started regrouping in June 2012 after sectarian violence erupted in Myanmar’s Arakan province where the Muslim Rohingya communities have been persecuted in the Buddhist-majority country.
