Four Years On, Stock Market Still Allergic to Obama

August 14, 12

In the vein of the historical Obama Speaketh, Stock Market Crasheth, American Stock Exchange ‘Celebrates’ Obama With Record CRASHES – Repeatedly!, and Dow Jones Surges After 2011 GOP Debate… Here’s a more recent update from CNBC via AoSHQ:

One analysis concludes that last week’s sharp three-day market surge can only mean that Wall Street is banking on a victory from Republican Mitt Romney.

That’s the logical interpretation one can draw from a rally amid conditions that otherwise would demand a selloff, Morgan Stanley chief U.S. equity strategist Adam S. Parker said in an analysis that asserts there is no other reason now to like stocks than a Romney win.

And via AoSHQ, next:


Stocks Shoot Up — This Really Might Be A Romney Rally

Stocks are taking off. Now up a bit less than 1%.

Romney rally? It could be, since there’s no equivalent rally happening in the European sovereign bond market, so it would imply that the rally is based on something stateside.

A couple other quick points:

It’s pretty well accepted dogma on Wall Street that Romney would be better for stocks.
Also, stocks got a bit of a lift last night right after the Romney victory.
The Romney win was the #1 talking point on morning analyst notes today.

Bottom line: Quite plausible.

Also noteworthy is that volume is on the high side today.

‘We Choose to Blog For Truth’ – Orwellian Utterance if I Ever Heard One

August 13, 12

So I saw the full page ad in The Star, and guess whose mug was smirking out at me:

Big Dog? As a blogger for ‘truth’?

An Orwellian Doublespeak label bestowed by the Ministry of Truth, surely!

Some background via here:

Who let that Big Dog Out? He is barking maliciously most characteristically in his concrete jungle of lies.

The blogger known as Big Dog who happily did his ridiculous spin about DAP and Christians and has to date got away scot free, seems to be barking to the tune of his political masters.

He and Marahku (allegedly Shamsul Yunos) lit a seditious spark of venomous hatred with their articles that were carried by Utusan Malaysia.

ore at Malaysians Must Know the Truth which sources from Malaysiakini.

And also, a lol:

Now, The Scribe knows why Utusan Malaysia and Big Dog are convinced that Christianity will replace Islam as the Official Religion of Malaysia as seen in the photographs taken at Westminster Cathedral during the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton where the Malaysian King, Sultan Mizan and his Queen are seen here in Church. After all, as the Malaysian King is supposed to be the Head of Islam in Malaysia, maybe Utusan Malaysia and Big Dog thought that the King and Queen had ‘Murtad’ (become apostates) by being present in Church.

Big Dog of course doesn’t take kindly to this fisking, and denies the charges (link is thru anonymousing). Amusingly, he titles his post choosing Malaysia over ‘conspiracists’ – what a sardonic laugh considering his contribution to ridiculous conspiracy theories about Christians takeovers!
