Fed policymakers in tug-of-war on inflation, instability

REUTERS/Juan MedinaThe outlook for inflation and the future of financial stability are emerging as dueling concerns at the heart of a debate at the U.S. central bank over how fast to proceed on future interest-rate hikes.

That is a change from years past, where high unemployment was at the top of the Federal Reserve's worry list for the U.S. economy. But with the U.S. unemployment rate now at 4.3 percent, most Fed officials are now convinced that nearly all Americans who want jobs can and do get them.

That is a main reason the Fed last week raised its target range for short-term interest rates for the second time this year, even though recent inflation readings have drifted away from the Fed's 2-percent target, confounding expectations based on history and theory.

Fed Chair Janet Yellen expressed confidence inflation would eventually perk up, but some policymakers cast doubt.

Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans on Tuesday became the latest to express worries on that front, saying he is increasingly concerned that a recent softness in inflation is a sign the U.S. central bank will struggle to get price pressures back to its 2 percent objective.

Here's What Lt. Col. Shaffer Believes Killed Otto Warmbier
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told Fox Business Tuesday that he believes Otto Warmbier’s brain damage was caused by repeated drugging.

“He was tortured not so much the way—pulling fingernails out with tools but by repeated drugging—sodium pentothal,” the retired Army general told the FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, adding that the drug’s frequent use is what caused Warmbier’s brain damage.

Shaffer said North Korea was likely trying to figure out if he was a CIA spy.

“I think that during his confinement they did it over and over and I think that was one of the reasons that they released him,” he said. “But no doubt they kind of like saw that some things are going to go tragically wrong, we better get this guy out of here anyway so it served their purpose to get him out.”

Shaffer said the U.S. should not “sit back” and let a dictator like Kim Jong Un murder an American and “think they can get away with it.”

“We need to rethink our foreign policy,” he said, “in a way that those bad guys … understand that there’s going to be consequences.”

Trump’s Right: Millions of Noncitizens Have Been Voting
TrumpPresident Donald Trump, in the leadup to the election and in the immediate aftermath of winning the White House, offered up fiery remarks about the voting trend of illegals and noncitizens, and how that trend has impacted U.S. elections in recent times — remarks for which he was soundly critized and condemned, by Democrats and members of his own Republican Party.

Well, looks like Trump is being proven right.

A nonpartisan research group in New Jersey, Just Facts, looked at the rate of noncitizen voting and found: in the 2008 election, as many as 5.7 million of them may indeed have cast ballots.

From the Washington Times:

“Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive

Harvard/YouGov study that every two years questions a sample size of tens of thousands of voters. Some acknowledge they are noncitizens and are thus ineligible to vote.

She won by over 11,000 votes...she spent but a fraction of the money that he did...she did not need to try and 'buy' an election... she campaigned on the issues alone...she actually lived in the district she would come to represent...and she is Karen Handel... the new Congresswoman from Georgia's 6th district.
