New York Stock Exchange Shuts Down: “Not the Result of a Cyber Breach”

Wall Street closes
Business • Views: 57,418

We’re starting off this Wednesday with an apparent collapse of civilization.

OK, that might be a slight exaggeration.

The stock exchange has now been down for well over an hour, eons in trading time. An “internal technical issue” doesn’t necessarily rule out an attack of some kind, but we’ll see soon enough.

Of course they are. Because it couldn’t be, well, you know, an actual glitch.

Those don’t happen with the bastion of capitalism. Except when they do.

In other news, Chuck Johnson is now writing for the white nationalist Takimag, also known as “Stormfront in a suit,” so he’s finally found his level.

Says he will be in CA with Clint Eastwood soon.

Seriously, if that is true all I can say is; How the mighty have fallen.
This would even top his empty chair routine. Trump is pure poison.

If you’re trying to deny you’re a white supremacist, it’s probably not the best idea to start writing for a white nationalist, antisemitic hate site like Takimag. Another brilliant move from Chucky.

What was the idiotic turn of phrase he used to explain that away? Something like, “just exploring other viewpoints.”

Good god, that was bad even for Taki. A slightly more coherent stream of consciousness rant than his recent blog post on Dylan Roof. Starts off talking about Trump and Mexicans. digresses into birtherism, takes a swipe a Twitter for “censorship”, and then just kind-of ends. It does seem that CCJ has found a new man-crush to replace Ted Cruz though.

Trump is even more open about his deranged xenophobia than Cruz, so of course Chucky digs him.

I’m watching this Trump implosion and the only thing I can think is “This man will learn nothing from the last 3 weeks.”

You know how everyone goes back and forth on whether Limbaugh, Coulter, Beck, et. al. believe their own bullshit or not? Not Trump. This guy’s ego has pretty much ruined his business. Yet, he he happily marches on into the buzz saw called reality.

A long while ago I used to support terminals for trade desks. One day I was doing a mid day repair on this guys station. It took me about 15 minutes. Toward the end of my repair he says to me I might have just lost 6 million while you’re ephing around with that thing in a very loud and and angry tone. I said to him how do you know I didn’t just save you 6 million by it being down. He said Fyou and walked away.

Just another day on the trade desk. I imagine he went to do some coke while I was finishing up.

I read that as ‘a giant turnip problem’. Hmmm, sounds fairly apropos.
