Wall Street Insider: "Hillary would be better for Wall Street ... unlikely to rein in Wall Street"


U.S. News & World Report
by Lou Carlozo
March 3, 2016

"In my view, Wall Street would be very uncomfortable with a Trump victory," says Paul Bennett, a clinical professor of finance and business economics at Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business and former chief economist at the New York Stock Exchange.

Bennett sees two downsides to a Trump win. "First, Trump is very unpredictable and would cause problems for the U.S. throughout the world. Second, investors and traders in general would not view Trump as a Wall Street insider, or even a broadly sophisticated businessman, since his most visible business is so idiosyncratic and self-promotional."

Yet it wouldn't even take a Trump victory to make markets nervous: just a whiff would be enough. "Markets will be weakened as the probability of Trump victory rises," Bennett says, noting that Clinton might actually be the preferable candidate on that score. "Hillary would be better for Wall Street because she is not an ideologue and is unlikely to take big steps to rein in Wall Street."

Bernie Will Get At Least 90% of the Black vote ....


in the general election as the Democratic party candidate for President.

Why would anyone think he would have a problem in getting massive support among Black people and Latinos to defeat Trump or any other racist Republican candidate?

Rolling Stones to play March 25 show in Havana, Cuba

Source: Associated Press

By MICHAEL WEISSENSTEIN, Associated Press

HAVANA — The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday that they will play a free concert in Havana on March 25, becoming the biggest act to play Cuba since its 1959 revolution.

The Stones will play in Havana's Ciudad Deportiva three days after President Barack Obama visits Havana. The concert is expected to draw a massive audience in a country where the government once persecuted young people for listening to rock music, then seen as a tool of Western capitalism.

Along with easing many restrictions on foreign music, art and literature, the Cuban government has increasingly allowed large gatherings not organized by the government in recent years. The Stones concert will almost certainly be one of the largest since Cuba began easing its limits on some non-official gatherings in the 1990s.

On the same week as the visits by Obama and The Rolling Stones, the Tampa Bay Rays are also expected to play the first Major League Baseball exhibition game in Cuba since 1999, part of an extraordinary string of events in a country that spent the Cold War isolated from the United States and its allies.

Over a million Cubans will turnout for this concert.

Latest CNN Poll Shows Bernie doing much better than Clinton aganst any Republican candidate



Washington (CNN)—Both of the remaining Democratic candidates for president easily top Republican front-runner Donald Trump in hypothetical general election match-ups, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

But Hillary Clinton, who is well ahead in the Democratic race for the presidency, would likely face a stronger challenge should Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz capture the Republican nomination for president.

In the scenario that appears most likely to emerge from the primary contests, Clinton tops Trump 52% to 44% among registered voters. That result has tilted in Clinton's favor since the last CNN/ORC Poll on the match-up in January.

Sanders -- who enjoys the most positive favorable rating of any presidential candidate in the field, according to the poll -- tops all three Republicans by wide margins: 57% to 40% against Cruz, 55% to 43% against Trump, and 53% to 45% against Rubio. Sanders fares better than Clinton in each match-up among men, younger voters and independents.
