For anyone who knows anything about America, this is all very familiar territory.

Once upon a time there was a President who made a mistake. The problem though was there were taped records of that mistake.


Decades later the entirely unprompted Trump Tapes spoke more to the issues of this election that anything since the campaign started.


Post this event, get our views on the developments in the Presidential election and their impact on capital markets.

    What’s amazing, is that there are two other candidates, that are being sidelined by the American establishment, with the help of the MSM. Very few people in the US are even aware of the fact that they have alternative choices to the two most unpopular candidates in the history of US presidential elections. Democracy is the victim of this conspiracy.
    Clinton is the establishment’s choice, inspight of her postulations about helping the worse off in society. She has financial support from the big banks and business, because they know she will maintain the status quo – supporting US imperialism.
    Trump has support from the mainstream voters, who have had enough of the lies and profligacy of the establishment, only helping their friends in Washington and Wall Street. Unfortunately, he is an ignorant egotist and would never get support in the two W’s, as his plans would be contra to their established positions.
    The other two candidates want to reign in costly and damaging US empire building and focus on the many problems in the US, helping to reduce the biggest debt in the history of that country. And of course, saving many lives in the process.
    Maybe CSS could make their readers aware of the alternative candidates and help to create some discussion, exposing the establishment’s and MSM’s marginalisation of them ?

      Thanks for your comment, which I read with interest.

      Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are also independent candidates in the 2016 presidential election however they have not featured in the debates as neither had the requisite support. I recall a televised interview with Gary Johnson recently where he was asked about an overseas leader that he admired and his running mate had to answer for him. Frankly I think their campaigns have run into the same problem that other independents have faced (notably Ralph Nader) in that they lack the media access and airtime support. In the past, in 1992 (Ross Perot) and Ralph Nader (2000) the independent sometimes takes support from the incumbent (this was particularly true in 1992) and arguably was one reason why Gore lost in 2000.

      The impact of the independents will be clear post the result and we can certainly review post election – at the moment I am not sure there is much to discuss on the independents as their campaigns have been so muted.

      Many thanks and Best regards
