Why Hillary Clinton Lost

Hillary Clinton’s top aides would like the world to know they are morally superior to Donald Trump and his staff, who ran an ugly campaign courting white nationalists. The Clinton team is right. And it doesn’t matter. At a vicious Harvard University post-mortem seminar on the 2016 election, top staffers for Clinton excoriated Team Trump. “If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost,” Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri declared. “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.” There are three possible choices to be made in the logical universe in which a political party is running a fascist campaign. People can 1) join the fascists, 2) lose to the fascists or 3) defeat the fascists. The Clinton campaign wants credit for not choosing door No. 1. Their job was to make option three a reality. History will remember them for number two. Listen to HuffPost’s analysis of the 2016 mess in the latest episode of the politics podcast So, That Happened, embedded below: Clinton ran against the single most unpopular candidate in the history of American presidential polling, and lost. Was this because Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee? Because FBI Director James Comey recklessly interfered? Because a tiny fraction of the electorate voted for Jill Stein? Because Clinton didn’t really bother to campaign in the Rust Belt? Why, yes! In an election decided by 110,000 votes, just about every factor can be considered decisive. But Clintonia’s (persuasive) defense of its own righteousness helps explain why the election was close to begin with. Trump ran a deeply bigoted campaign that whipped up and played off of white resentment. But his dominant performance among white working-class voters wasn’t due to his campaign message alone. Much of Clinton’s poor performance resulted from her campaign’s strategic decision to not even contest the demographic. A good chunk of the Democratic Party intelligentsia applauded Clinton for taking the moral high ground, declaring the entire white working class to be a deplorable racist swamp. The notion that economic issues played literally no role ― zero ― in Trump’s appeal became a common Democratic talking point. Democrats were Good People, and anyone even considering voting for Trump was a Bad Person. There is no need to pretend the white working class is a monolith of moral excellence. Many working-class people, like many middle- and upper-class people, are bigoted, hostile to all kinds of people and lifestyles. But the job of a presidential candidate is to appeal to our better angels and win votes anyway. In 2008, the Democratic coalition included millions of black churchgoers who opposed same-sex marriage. In 2012, Democrats welcomed millions of Catholic Latino voters who opposed abortion. These people were not scolded for their shortcomings but celebrated for their virtues. This year, Democratic elites decided that the entire white working class was unworthy of sharing their company. The town of Nelsonville, Ohio, went for Barack Obama by 40 points in both 2008 and 2012. It’s 94 percent white, and, as Dave Jamieson reported for The Huffington Post, Trump narrowly carried it in 2016. Is this because Nelsonvillers are all morally repugnant slime? A lot of them were enthusiastic about the Trump Wall. But somehow the Democratic Party was OK with these same people voting for Obama, twice. This year, the party decided it was above such compromises. In an era of extreme economic inequality, the votes are where the money isn’t ― the working class. Writing off the white working class is a pretty bad way to start, especially if the party can’t run up the score with the black and brown working class. And the Clinton campaign didn’t run up the score. Trump ― who opened his campaign by deriding Mexicans as “rapists” ― outperformed Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign among black and Latino voters.  Being pro white working class doesn’t mean being anti-brown working class. True, Bill Clinton campaigned on white working-class grievances against the black and brown working class, and he governed with tragic results (welfare reform, the crime bill). But Obama aggressively courted working-class voters of all colors with a populist economic assault straight out of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s campaigns. Obama’s entire 2012 message was devoted to trashing Romney as a corporate raider who said “corporations are people.” Obama ran ads blasting Romney’s tax-dodging Cayman Islands investment funds. The Obama campaign relentlessly touted the Detroit auto bailout as a win for working people. At the time, nobody in the Democratic Party’s chattering class saw a conflict between the first black president courting black voters and white working-class voters at the same time. Today, we are told that “identity politics” and “economic justice” are incompatible. This is ridiculous. But it’s not fair to blame it all on the Clinton campaign. Democratic elites cleared the nomination field for a candidate who was being criminally investigated by the FBI, a woman with a nine-figure net worth who was still pursuing six-figure Wall Street speeches when she announced her presidential bid. Her “identity politics” record with the black and brown working class was awful. She had supported her husband’s racist welfare reform and crime legislation, and warned against the threat of black “super-predators.” The problems weren’t all ancient ’90s history. In 2014, Clinton said that child refugees seeking asylum in the United states “should be sent back.” And, you know, the Iraq war thing. All of this was obvious to the Democratic Party, which plowed ahead anyway, insisting that anyone who wasn’t on board with the first woman president was a vile sexist.  “Stronger together,” in retrospect, was a pretty good campaign theme. It’s too bad the Clinton camp didn’t think it applied to people living below the median household income. “So, That Happened” is hosted by Jason Linkins, Zach Carter and Arthur Delaney.

Команда United Traders закрывает свой хедж-фонд

Тимофей не пишет ничего по этому поводу? Тут пишут что объем не набрали, а по данным на СЛ  фонд минус показывал. Кому верить? ) Несмотря на три прибыльных года, Kvadrat Black так и не смог нарастить критический объем средств под управлением, чтобы перекрыть инфраструктурные расходы, говорится в официальном сообщении. Фонд прекращает работу с 1 января 2017 года.«Фонд является прибыльным для инвесторов, но убыточным для владельцев. Стоимость содержания юридического лица, оплата услуг администратора, юристов, аудитора и банка превышают комиссии, уплаченные инвесторами. В силу того, что торговля фонда обособлена от основных торговых счетов United Traders, брокерские услуги обходятся на порядок дороже, чем у проп-трейдинговой компании», — говорится в релизе UT.Несмотря на то, что за 3,5 года Kvadrat Black сумел заработать порядка 50% для своих клиентов, инвесторы не спешили вкладываться в него в том числе из-за небольшого размера активов под управлением (менее $50 млн). К тому же, как пишут основатели фонда, большинство потенциальных клиентов отпугивала сложная процедура оформления документов и перевода средств.В релизе отмечено, что текущие стратегии фонда остаются рабочими и будут использованы в дальнейшем.Хедж-фонд Kvadrat Black открыли основатели проп-трейдинговой компании United tradersАнатолий Радченко, Роман Вишневский и Дмитрий Белоусов.

Grayson on Rubio victory: 'Told you so,' Harry Reid

Rep. Alan Grayson, the firebrand liberal who clashed with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid throughout his Florida senatorial primary run, took one last shot at the Nevada Democrat as both prepare to leave Congress.Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) comfortably won back his seat Tuesday, beating Rep. Patrick Murphy, the man who had beaten Grayson in the Democratic primary. Reid made no secret of his opposition to Grayson’s Senate bid from its start, writing in a statement that the Florida lawmaker “has no moral compass” and accusing him of using his position as a congressman to promote investments in “Cayman Islands hedge funds.”At a meeting of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in May, Grayson confronted Reid about the statement, prompting the outgoing minority leader to tell him: “I want you to lose. It’s true.”“Rubio reelected. Told you so, @SenatorReid ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #Election2016,” Grayson wrote on Twitter Tuesday night. The message was accompanied by an animated image of the TV character Homer Simpson setting fire to a bridge as he drives across it.Rubio reelected. Told you so, @SenatorReid ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #Election2016 pic.twitter.com/zMRj5oFS7m— Rep. Alan Grayson (@AlanGrayson) November 9, 2016The Florida lawmaker’s Senate campaign floundered not just under the weight of his feud with Reid but also as a result of allegations that he had battered his ex-wife over the course of two decades. Grayson denied those allegations and threatened to have a POLITICO reporter arrested when he asked the legislator about them at an event in Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention.Grayson abandoned his seat representing Florida’s 9th Congressional District to run for Senate. His wife, Dena Grayson, finished third in the Democratic primary to replace him.

СМИ: Роман Абрамович является налоговым резидентом России

Роман Абрамович является резидентом России и проводит в стране более 183 дней в году, сообщает Forbes со ссылкой на знакомого российского миллиардера. Абрамович, оказавшийся на 13 месте в рейтинге самых богатых россиян по версии Forbes, является налоговым резидентом России с точки зрения законодательства о контролируемых иностранных компаниях (КИК), откуда, как отмечает издание, убрали ряд нервировавших миллиардеров поправок. «Это только с экранов телевизора кажется, что Абрамович все время находится в Лондоне, но он очень много времени проводит в Москве»,– циитрует издание своего источника из окружения российского олигарха. По итогам 2016 года, владельцы контролируемых иностранных компаний впервые должны отчитаться о доходах и заплатить налоги в России (20% – юрлица, 13% – физлица), из-за чего некоторые бизнесмены предпочли стать нерезидентами, чтобы не подпасть под действие закона. «Абрамович давно готовился к ужесточению законодательства и усложнил схемы собственности. Еще во время его развода с женой Ириной выяснилось, что недвижимость, яхты и акции предприятий были записаны на несколько кипрских безотзывных трастов, которые держат активы в интересах пятерых детей от брака с Ириной Абрамович – Анны, Аркадия, Сони, Арины и Ильи (сейчас у бизнесмена еще двое детей от брака с Дарьей Жуковой)»,– отмечает издание. По трастовым соглашениям имуществом распоряжались управляющие – глава лондонского офиса Millhouse Евгений Тененбаум и финансовый директор Millhouse Ирина Панченко. Оба работают с Абрамовичем с 1990-х. «Схема была выстроена так, что формально активами владеют дети Абрамовича (бенефициары). Поэтому жена Абрамовича вряд ли смогла бы легко отсудить его состояние во время развода. В его рамках по мировому соглашению она могла получить активы и средства на 300 млн долларов, а дети – оплату всех расходов»,– пишет Forbes. В прошлом году миллиардер перевел в российскую юрисдикцию на себя лично 24% в Первом канале (что было связано с изменением законодательства о СМИ). Помимо доли в телеканале Абрамович владеет всего двумя активами в России – регистратором «Рост» и бизнес-центром «Белые Сады». Гольф-клуб в «Сколково» теперь принадлежит его бывшей жене. Его крупнейшие активы вне России – 31,03% металлургической компании Evraz (через кипрский офшор Lanebrook совместно с Александром Фроловым и Александром Абрамовым). Футбольный клуб «Челси» в своей отчетности указывает своим бенефициаром компанию Fordstam Романа Абрамовича, хотя в СМИ появлялась cлухи, что треть клуба может перейти его 23-летнему сыну Аркадию, который после изменения российского законодательства стал проводить сделки с иностранными компаниями. Аркадий инвестирует из офшорной зоны на Каймановых островов через компанию Zoltav Resources, которая на 40% принадлежала ему. Инвестором Аркадий стал еще до совершеннолетия и был бенефициаром инвесткомпании ARA Capital Limited, названной по его инициалам. ARA Capital скупала месторождения полезных ископаемых, инвестируя в разработку недр Австралии, Северной и Южной Америки. Zoltav испытывает интерес к нефтяным активам России. Компания купила газовое месторождение Бортовое, Западно-Карабашское месторождение, компанию Royal Atlantic Energy и Колтогорский лицензионный участок. «Источник на нефтяном рынке говорит, что M&A в компании Zoltav продолжают заниматься менеджеры Романа Абрамовича, а для сына создается красивая история. Косвенно это подтверждается тем, что Давидович является владельцем 4,48% Zoltav через Erlinad Holdings Limited (BVI), который выкупил ее у компании Matteson Overseas Limited (BVI) Валерия Ойфа (партнер Абрамовича-старшего, член совета директоров Highland, экс-сенатор от Омской области)»,– отмечает издание. Абрамович не первый из миллиардеров, кто передал часть своего имущества детям. Примерно в период после введения закона о контролируемых иностранных компаниях дети многих бизнесменов активизировались в бизнесе. Последние несколько лет сделки на сотни млн начал заключать недавно закончивший МГИМО сын Сулеймана Керимова – Саид. А тридцатипятилетний сын Евгения Гинера Вадим с мая 2016 года контролирует не менее 75% акций британской компании Bluecastle Enterprises, которой принадлежит клуб ЦСКА и связанные активы. Ранее сообщалось, что владелец USM Holding Алишер Усманов, который занимает третье место в рейтинге богатейших бизнесменов России по версии Forbes, перестал быть налоговым резидентом России.

The secret life of a tax adviser: it’s not about devising fancy avoidance schemes | Anonymous

I enjoy my job, although dealing with HMRC can be frustrating and I get annoyed by clients who’d rather listen to their golf club pals than pay for proper adviceA common misconception about my profession is that we spend a lot of our time devising fancy avoidance schemes usually involving exotic offshore destinations. I’m afraid that for firms like ours the reality is much more mundane – think Canvey Island rather than the Cayman Islands.The majority of what we do is quite routine compliance work such as tax returns. But this is interspersed with some more interesting stuff, including planning, company reorganisation and acquisitions. I love this advisory work, not just because it’s the most profitable but also because it is intellectually challenging. Like most of us in tax, I’m a bit of a nerd. Continue reading...

The final WHIRLWIND begins -- Clinton ahead in WaPo/ABC, NBC/WSJ, POLITICO/Morning Consult polls -- ROAD WARRIORS share their post-campaign vacation plans -- 16 BREAKOUT MEDIA STARS -- B’DAY: Dan Senor

Good Sunday morning. The next three days will be a whirlwind for both candidates. Just today, Donald Trump is in Sioux City, Iowa, at noon, Minneapolis at 2 p.m., Sterling Heights, Michigan, at 6 p.m., Moon Township, Pennsylvania, at 8 p.m., and then Leesburg, Virginia, at 9:30 p.m.Trump will probably win Iowa, where the final Selzer poll has him up 7. Beyond that, he’s engaged in a last-ditch effort to knock off Hillary Clinton in Democratic strongholds. Clinton hasn’t trailed in one major poll in Michigan, but the campaign is sending its big guns there today and Monday. Clinton’s lead in Virginia -- which has an all blue-slate of statewide elected officials -- has been solid. A Republican hasn’t won in Minnesota since 1972 (not 1984, as Jake wrote yesterday).ONE ALMOST GETS THE SENSE that they’re just flying around and seeing what sticks.-- @maggieNYT: “Have now heard from two people close to the Trump campaign that they haven’t been polling MN this week.

Россия сократила объемы вложений в гособлигации минфина США

В нынешнем году Россия оказалась на 22 месте среди основных держателей американских ценных бумагМатериал из 1 страницыРоссия за год сократила объемы вложений в гособлигации министерства финансов США. Об этом говорится в распространенном в пятницу докладе американского финансового ведомства.Документ носит предварительный характер, его окончательная версия будет опубликована в конце апреля. В докладе приводятся данные на 30 июня 2013 года с учетом владений иностранных государств в акциях и долговых обязательствах.Указывается, что к этому сроку российский портфель оценивался в 139 млрд долларов, причем все они приходились на долю долгосрочных долговых обязательств. Годом ранее этот показатель составлял 164 млрд долларов, из которых 158 млрд долларов - долгосрочные, а еще около 6 млрд долларов - краткосрочные долговые обязательства.В нынешнем году Россия оказалась на 22 месте среди основных держателей американских ценных бумаг. Лидирует же Япония, чей пакет составляет 1,76 трлн долларов, а на втором месте идет Китай - 1,73 трлн долларов. Третью позицию занимают Каймановы острова с 1,16 трлн долларов.В целом объем иностранных инвестиций в американские акции, долгосрочные и краткосрочные долговые обязательства выросли за год почти на 9 процентов.

HSBC заплатит штраф в $1,5 млрд

Крупнейший европейский банк HSBC Holdings Plc должен будет выплатить штраф в $1,5 млрд из-за недостаточного контроля за отмыванием денег. Ранее руководство банка уже признало свою вину и принесло свои извинения перед сенатом США.Столь крупный штраф банк готов выплатить, чтобы избежать официального расследования. Причем сумма более чем в 2 раза превосходит объем резервируемого объема средств для подобных ситуаций. Ранее аналитики прогнозировали, что штрафы за подобную халатность могут составить до $1 млрд.Еще в июле этого месяца банк был уличен в обслуживании многочисленных преступных группировок, включая наркосиндикаты. По результатам анализа 1,4 млн внутренних документов банка и опроса 75 сотрудников стало ясно, что недостаточный контроль со стороны банка позволил преступным группировкам направлять свои средства в финансовую систему США. Более того, согласно публикациям ряда СМИ HSBC участвовал в крайне сомнительных операциях в различных регионах и странах мира, включая Каймановы острова, Иран, Саудовскую Аравию, Мексику и Сирию."Наши меры предотвращения и противодействия легализации доходов, полученных преступным путем, в период между 2004 и 2010 годами должны были быть более надежными и эффективными, и мы не смогли выявить случаи неприемлемого поведения и предотвратить их", - заявил глава банка Стюарт Гулливер.Однако ситуация выглядит гораздо серьезнее, если вспомнить, что еще в 2003 г. американские регуляторы предупреждали банк и просили ужесточить контроль за отмыванием денег. Получается, что за 9 лет HSBC даже не постарался исправить ситуацию. Ранее в аналогичную ситуацию попал нидерландский банк ING. Банк признался в том, что с начала 1990-х гг. по 2007 г. незаконно провел через американские банки $1,6 млрд, скрывая характер сделок. Компания также помогала свои клиентам лучше спрятать информацию, которой могли бы заинтересоваться власти. Таким образом, граждане Кубы и Ирана могли вести дела с американскими компаниями в обход закона. Штраф стал рекордным для такого рода нарушений - $619 млрд. ING стал четвертой организацией, заплатившей за помощь своим клиентам обходить американские законы. В 2009 г. Credit Suisse выплатил $536 млн, Lloyds TSB - $350 млн. В 2010 г. Barclays был оштрафован на $298 млн.
