Tonight’s Business/Market/Political Impact Spotlight –

Still from video, posted below.

It wasn’t pretty. Entertaining? Yes.  Pretty? No. 

From left-of-center CBS News Democratic Debate in Detroit Night 2 Recap.



From left-of-center ABC News Night 2 recap, “Both Harris and Biden were targets of constant attacks as their rivals targeted their records and plans to defeat President Trump in 2020.



Let’s keep it simple about the Detroit Democratic debates for now. Where is Howard Schultz?  What happened to that independent run?

If Democrats keep doing what they have been doing, they are eating each other as badly – or at times, worse? – as some Republicans did in their debates during the 2016 election cycle.  More moderate Democrats are bluntly saying that they won’t win independents over if they hold to the positions of some of the more progressive candidates. It is easy to imagine, as we watch these debates, how the GOP will use video clips of Democrats attacking Democrats in attack ads next year, if not sooner.

Several Democratic advisors and commentators have expressed concerns over how the field is shaping up.  Michael Moore has said that Michelle Obama needs to get in and run.  Beyond her denial of interest, what motivation would the former first lady have?  She and the former president have contracts worth tens of millions of dollars. While it is entirely likely that a run by Mrs. Obama would result in her winning the nomination, would they risk that if a campaign against the 45th president proved to be unsuccessful?

That said, let’s pivot to what moved the markets.  From left-of-center CNBC.

·        Oil dropped on Thursday after President Donald Trump announced additional tariffs of 10% on the remaining $300 billion in Chinese goods would be added in September. 

·        WTI crude fell 7.9% to $53.95. 

·        “The oil market has been the highest hit asset around from the trade war and this only exacerbates the situation,” said John Kilduff Founding Partner of Again Capital.




While Fed Chair Powell can send markets moving too, or some mega billionaires can as well with surprising statements, there are not too many world leaders that can send oil markets or stocks up or down as readily as President Trump can with a tweet or a few words.

Note that the president has a rally this evening in Ohio that will be carried on one of the CSPAN channels.
