1-20-2017: USA  Inauguration of Donald Trump, President.

Newsworthy Events: Archive

1-20-2017: USA: President Trump takes office.

1-10-2017: The Federal Reserve Board: despite indications going back as far as July 2016, raises Interest Rates across the USA. The Real Estate Market had already slowed in the last quarter of 2016. The Stock Market rallied through the Hike based on Wall Streets confidence of the Trump Stimulus Plan. The FED chose to ignore the Election and new direction of the American economy and the wishes of the American people.

1-10-2017: US FED: Increases the Prime Lending Rates on December 14, 2016.

12-17-2016: Propaganda and Political Rhetoric: runs rampant. The TV and General Media receives approximately 10 times or more the cost of a Commercial Ad when it is run with Political Overtones. In brief, in TV a Commercial, 30 second spot that cost the Advertiser $200,000 has the potential to make the TV Station $1 to $2 Million Dollars or more depending on its Non-Prime Time Placement on TV or in the Media, in which it is presented. A Prime Time 30 Second Commercial Spot average cost is $344,827.00. All the affiliates to the Station or Media Feeds, inclusive, are often big campaign contributors expecting a big return. Even if it includes the cost of American's dignity. The question is, does the payoff stop here?  Who pays for the campaign contributions at the end of a election such as Hillary Clinton's $641,000,000. political campaign debt? Do Political Parties own or control media conglomerates? Of course they do. This is why i9 you look at the news you hear the same report on different programs and station, just spoken by one of the that stations Talking Heads. The News Anchor is just reading the Teleprompter. The Reporter generally has no control of the report. If the Reporter exerts control they are Fired. Is the Media immune to Anti-Trust Legislation or is it just being ignored?

12-17-2016: Post Election Media Blitz: 2016 edit me Estimated Pre-Election Media Proceeds is approximately 10 Billion Dollars.

12-16-2016: The Federal Fund Rate: increase will be felt by the entire USA economy. The USA economy has never been more suppressed than in the past 7 years. Currently at a 1.14% Inflation Rate average for 2016. Any of the Top Ten Country's, that are participants in the Global Economy, are considered to be in a Depression at 1.0%. The Fed Chair Janet Yellen, a Democratic Appointee along with the FED's Board Of Governors have ignored all the data supporting a stimulus plan to move the USA and Americans back as a economic force, in America and Globally.

12-16-2016: US Federal Reserve: Increases the Federal Funds Rate .25%. The USA Prime Lending Rate increases to 3.75%.

12-15-2016: Hilliary Clinton: Hillary Clinton's campaign contributions exceeded $641 Million Dollars in her failed attempt to become President of the US. Apparently the Clinton Backers are looking for another avenue to make Clinton president that will enable the Clinton Backers to get their money back from the USA taxpayers if Hillary Clinton was elected. This is commonly known as "Special Interest" groups. The Special Interest Group of Clinton supporters are spending a undisclosed amount in addition to their $641 Million of campaign contributions that look to be lost and Hillary Clinton can not repay through any political influence.
The Clinton's Net Worth is only about $51,000,000. The campaign contributors or Special Interest are advancing more campaign funds to influence the Electoral Voters to overthrow the American Peoples voting system in the USA. The Democratic Socialist Party coup, aka, The Democratic Party members have gained the interest of between 10 and 40 Electoral Voters. Donald Trump the President Elect reached 276 Electoral votes and was called the winner. Hillary Clinton conceded. Both candidates agreed on several occasions on TV that who ever won the other candidate would be supportive of the election outcome. Hillary Clinton has breached that promise to the American People.

12-15-2016: The American People's Vote: and American system challenged by the Democratic Party Socialist change coup.

11-30-2016: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: have eased up Mortgage Interest Rates as the First Time Home Buyer re-enters the Market. The immediate impact appears to be that, First Time Home Buyer Sales have declined from +3.2% to +2.0% Down -1.2% in the last 30 days. First Time Home buyer Sales in the last 2 months have moved the Existing Home Sales in the USA into a slight plus for January through October 2016. Will the government interest rate hike on mortgages put the housing market back underwater?

11-30-2016: FNMA and FHLMC move Mortgage Interest Rates Up 3/4% in 4 months,  3.5% TO 4.25%.

11-23-2016: USA Existing Home Sales: are edged above the zero level at +0.41% as of October 31, 2016. This is a continuing reflection of the First time Home Buyer who has pushed the market up in September +3.2% and +2.0% in October 2016. compared to 2015. Home Loan interest rates continue to ease up on the threat that the Federal Reserve Board may increase the Prime Lending Rate again at the Mid December meeting if Inflation reaches 2.0%. October's Inflation Rate is 1.6%. The average Inflation Rate for the USA in the first 10 months of 2016 is 1.14%.
Economic Depression level for the USA is 0.0% to +1.0%. An Economic Growth level for the USA and any Top 10 Gross Domestic Product Country is 2.5% to 3.5%. Courtesy of RETV.News

11-23-2016: First Time Home Buyers in the USA help lift Nationwide Existing Home Sales into the Plus+ category for year end 2016.

11-15-2016: USA Existing Home Sales: are Down -0.23% From January 2016 to October 2016. Nationwide area hot spots still exist. See grid below. The First Time Home Buyer has emerged in August and September with Low Home Loan Interest Rates as a incentive. The First Time Home buyer purchases have not led the real estate market like this in over 4 years. Rates have eased up about 3/8% as of November 2016. This may have an effect on qualifying for the necessary amount of a home loan in many cases for all home buyers. Will the First Time Buyer continue to emerge?

11-15-2016: USA Real Estate Top 5 Counties: 2016 3rd Quarter,Top Home appreciation areas in USA. See Mid Page Grid below.

11-8-2016: USA Election Results: Donald Trump prevailed as the President Elect of the United States Of America on November 8, 2016. We The People Of America have spoken. The condition of the United States is worse than when Obama took office in 2009. In all probability it will take the incoming Trump Administration a couple of years to start seeing a economic turnaround of "Make America Great Again". In the meantime Trump has indicated that the agenda is to piece back America and it the American peoples financial and economic future in the first 90 to 180 days in office. This of course includes the direct support of Congress, Senate, Treasury, Federal Reserve et al. With the continuing support of Americans Trump indicates his Administration will abolish Socialism within the system to some degree and reinstate a progressive Capitalist society promoting American Capitalism and the "American Dream" for all who want to pursue it. It's the American Way.

11-8-2016: Donald Trump wins Presidency against all odds. The We The People platform prevails.

11-2-2016: US Federal Funds Rate: The Federal Reserve Board met on November 2, 2016 and indicated that a increase in the Federal Funds Rate is still on the Table for the Mid-December meeting. The Federal Funds Rate has a direct reflection on Mortgage Interest Rates and any consumer produced interest rate as offered by a Bank or Savings and Loan or Institutional Lender. This rate may increase from 1/2% to 3/4%. The consumer will probably see a higher than 1/4% increase on any loan.
This is the same type of Rate Increase, of 1/4%, that caused the December 18, 2015-16 Stock Market Crash.
FEDERAL FUNDS RATE BY DEFINITION: In the United States, the federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions (banks and credit unions) lend reserve balances to other depository institutions overnight, on an uncollateralized basis.

11-2-2016: FED temporarily shelves USA Interest Rate Hike until Mid December meeting.

10-3-2016: US Federal Reserve Board: Indicated the Prime Lending Rate Hike is back on the table before the end of 2016. Chair, Janet Yellen said that when the USA Inflation Rate reached 2% that is enough to generate a rate hike. Currently the USA is at a 1.06% Inflation Rate, but USA Productivity for Christmas Orders will increase this number superficially by December 2016. It appears the USA Interest Rates would need to come down internally to stimulate the USA economy. The Euro and some of their major countries like China and Japan are looking at negative interest rates and Stimulus Plans currently which still has not curtailed the Euro economic down turn.

10-3-2016: FED postpones Interest Rate Hike to survey poor USA performance and continuing depressionary Inflation Rate levels.

9-20 & 21-2016: US FED: At the Meeting FED Chair Janet Yellen set guaranteed Interest Rate Hike date.

9-6-2016: US Federal Reserve Board: Wall Street is convinced that the FED will increase the Prime Lending Rate(s) at the September meeting or in the Last Fiscal Quarter of 2016. This is despite a down trending US Economy. Currently the Stock Market has not Yield recovered for 2016. In addition, the most recent report in on Existing Homes Sales for July is down -3.2% for July. The average home sales for the USA for 2016 is Down -0.2% as of July 31, 2016.

9-6-2016: US FED: puts increase in Prime Lending Rates back on the agenda.

8-5-2016: Global Bond Schemes: on the Horizon, China Stimulus Scheme begins June 2016. The quick fix is on to attract capital to  down trending markets globally. UK, England Lowers Interest Rates from 0.50% to 0.25%, the first lowering since 2009. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics: "The unemployment rate held at 4.9 percent in July, and the number of unemployed persons was essentially unchanged at 7.8 million. Both measures have shown little movement, on net, since August of last year."

7-15-2016: Global Bonds Go Lower: The US Markets reaction to this is that Global Bond Investment will be lower for the long term. The best forecast as of this date is that Bond Markets "other than select corporate" with no negative yield will attract investors even if the yield is under 1%. China's GDP rose dramatically last month over the First 5 months of 2016. This is most likely due to China Government Stimulus Plan and the fact that today's China GDP production is better because of upcoming Christmas Orders. If China over produces now, it looks good, but the end game is that profits and production may be greatly diminished when you factor in anticipated standing inventory in the First Quarter(s) of 2017. Analyst indicate that new supplemental "Service Related Business" recovery is approximately 10 years away

Euro is that it has always drained the assets of stronger non communist and free countries to the degree that democracy and the peoples financial freedom can be impaired in the free countries. The EU is a prerequisite to a one world system that time and time again has proved it is not always economically equal for the middle class people, especially in down trending world economics.

6-25-2016: UK Leaves EU by a voting majority.

6-15-2016: US Federal Reserve Board: met and decided not to increase Long Term or Short Term Prime Lending Rates for June and possibly July 2016.
