Tucker Carlson: Biden is Done

Very interesting segment from Tucker Carlson last night. https://youtu.be/MgXq8S02NJc TL;DR (or watch): Permanent Washington has decided that Biden is done, just like they did with JFK, Nixon, and others. They'll use the classified document scandal as the excuse because it will limit collateral dama...

Re: Mar A Lago documents

Was the reason for the raid that the former President was in possession of the documents? Or was it that he allegedly refused to give them back? Or was it something else?

Re: Zeihan on the dollar

YouTube started recommending this guy’s videos to me recently and I’ve watched a few of them. Apparently he used to work for Stratfor and left to start his own firm around the time WikiLeaks started publishing over 5 million Stratfor emails. That seems interesting, but maybe it’s just a coincidence.

Some additional options are SLYV and IJS. They are both "S&P 600 Small Cap Value" ETFs. Using the research tool on Schwab.com, they list 162 ETF and mutual fund choices for small cap value (good luck with that!). Schwab lists SWSSX as a blended fund, so it's not one of the 162 mentioned above. At Po...

On the other hand, funds in a Roth IRA are highly valuable. When I found myself in a similar situation to yours, I took a middle path. That is, I still ...
