Фракция на три часа От своего депутат Олег Ляшко отказался еще утром вчерашнего дня, после того, как СМИ начали активно обсуждать заметку в The New York Times.

Это исключительно его собственная позиция, которую ни я лично, ни наша команда Радикальной партии не поддерживаем", - написал Ляшко на своей странице в Facebook...

"Complacency Reigns Supreme" Loews CEO Warns The Market's "Major Disconnect Concerns Me"

Jim Tisch, the CEO of Loews, is worried - worried enough that he slashed his firm's share buybacks in 2016 and explained to an anxious analyst crowd during his earnings call that "complacency reigns supreme. However, my experience has shown me that this state of affairs won’t go on indefinitely."  Simply put, Tisch warned that investors who bid up the prices of stocks and bonds aren’t accounting for the risks, given global uncertainties about taxes, regulation and trade. "I want to start by showing my thoughts on the financial markets, as a backdrop to what guided our approach to capital allocation in 2016. I've been around long enough to have lived through all sorts of markets. I've learned to respect markets, while at the same time being skeptical of conventional wisdom.   I've lived through a bond bear markets and a gargantuan bond bull market. I've seen bond yields above 15% and below 2%. I've seen inflationary spirals, I've seen deflationary threats, I've seen deregulation and reregulation. I've seen the S&P 500 trade as high as 30 times earrings and I've seen the S&P trade as low as seven times earnings.   With all this experience, that comes with age I might add, here is what I'm seeing in the markets today.   In the credit markets, spreads on the high yield securities are approaching historically type levels, while key credit metrics such as leverage and coverage ratios are showing signs of weakening.       The leverage loan market has been overrun by such massive inflows of capital that you could probably get alone to buy a fleet of zeppelins at this point in time.       With respect to rates, the 10-year treasury note is currently trading at around 2.5%, up from the its recent lows, but still well below historic norms. In my view, the mood of these markets is in historic contrast with many unknown from our current economic and political landscape, both here and abroad. For me, it's a major disconnect, and it concerns me. The optimism in the rates and credit markets is likewise reflected in the public equity and merger markets. The S&P 500 is trading at roughly 19 times earnings, three turns times higher than the 50-year average of 2016. These valuations make me uncomfortable, especially given the unknowns in taxation, foreign trade, regulation and more.       The merger market is being driven by large pools of private and corporate buyers, the wave of private capital combined with the abundance of the available leverage at remarkably low rates, has enabled private equity firms to pay big prices for company that haven't already been garbled up by strategic buyers.   To sum up, in my opinion, the markets are priced for perfection, and they have been that way for quite some time, complacency reign supreme. However, my experience has shown me that this state of fear – of the phase won't go on indefinitely. So why am I sharing these thoughts with you? Because I know that some of you've wondered why we brought back relatively few Loews shares in 2016 or why lower CapEx made in acquisition.   In terms of the first question, looking back over 2016 with a benefit of 2020 hindsight, I wish we had repurchased more stock in the first half of the year, when Loews shares were trading at lower prices, and when the S&P was 20% lower than recent levels. As the equity market climbed to record heights during the second half of 2016, Loews' common stock moved along with it and we became cautious. And we are more comfortable buying shares back when the market is at its lows rather than when it's hitting new highs. While, we remain positive on our shares and see real potential for our subsidiaries, we also know that Loews' stock price is positively correlated to the overall equity markets.   Unlike many other companies, we don't have set quarters for share purchases in a given year. We use our judgment to buyback our stock at the lowest price possible. Sometimes, we look like heroes, like when we bought 9% of our stock in 2015. And there are other times, having not purchase shares may make us look like we are asleep at the switch, but I promise you, we are not. Over the span of time measured in years and decades we're proud of our record and we feel that our share repurchases have created significant value for our shareholders.   ... It's a tough market in which to be a disciplined buyer. I assure you that we remain committed to our long-standing philosophy of creating value for all shareholders through prudent capital allocation." Of course, we should not pay attention to this CEO's comments - based on decades of experience - we should be distracted over here by the pending IPO of Snapchat, the cash-burning, disappearing sexting app.

Donald Trump Says Philadelphia's Murder Rate Has Increased. He's Lying.

In fact, Pennsylvania’s largest city has seen violent crime drop to “levels unseen in decades,” Philly.com reported earlier this month, citing Philadelphia police. Burglaries fell to a record low, and the total number of homicides decreased from 2015 levels, remaining below 300 in 2016. “We’ve got a long way to go,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told the publication. “Nobody is suggesting anything other than that.” Take a look at the stats from Philly.com’s Chris Palmer: Here are Philadelphia's year-end murder totals from 1988-2015 (2016 was lower than prior year). Has not been "horribly increasing" pic.twitter.com/rqMlzKq50K— Chris Palmer (@cs_palmer) January 26, 2017 And here is Philadelphia's murder *rate*, per 100,000 people. Also not "horribly increasing." pic.twitter.com/BXpud3aBVB— Chris Palmer (@cs_palmer) January 26, 2017 Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney blasted Trump’s remarks in a statement. “President Trump’s false statements today were an insult to the men and women of the Philadelphia police force—the very same men and women who are working long hours today to ensure his safety,” it read. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) also lashed out at Trump on Twitter, referring to the president’s comments as “alternative facts.” I will not stand by as @realdonaldtrump falsely maligns the city of Philadelphia. I will counter his #alternativefacts with the real ones. https://t.co/ovWqKM4hqa— Senator Bob Casey (@SenBobCasey) January 26, 2017 Trump has already gained notoriety for lying or misleading the public about crime in the U.S. Hours after he was sworn in, he claimed “killings have risen by 50 percent” in the nation’s capital. In fact, violent crime there dropped by 10 percent last year. Hate crimes, on the other hand, did increase across the country after Trump’s win. In the 10 days after the election, 36 hate crimes were reported in Pennsylvania, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks incidents of hate. In one case, someone wrote the words “Seig Heil 2016” and drew a swastika on a storefront in South Philadelphia hours after the election was called. In another, black students at the University of Pennsylvania received racist texts.  As Trump thanked his supporters inside the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, at least 1,000 protesters confronted the president with a show of resistance outside.  Trump's welcome in Philadelphia: impatient for his brand of greatness. #ResistanceInPhilly #resist #resistoften pic.twitter.com/2VCMhcPpUM— Courtney Clift (@CCourtneyclift) January 26, 2017 How will Trump’s first 100 days impact you? Sign up for our weekly newsletter and get breaking updates on Trump’s presidency by messaging us here.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Protesters to greet Trump as he huddles with Republicans

PHILADELPHIA — Activists emboldened by the massive turnout at last weekend’s Women’s March are planning to descend on the downtown area here Thursday, when President Donald Trump joins Congressional Republicans to begin hammering out a policy agenda.It’s Trump’s first trip away from Washington, D.C., since taking the oath of office last week, and it comes amid a torrent of action by Trump that has inflamed passions among liberals, from his early moves to repeal Obamacare to his executive orders to begin building a wall along the southern border — even as it's left many Republicans in the dark. Already, a protest march against repealing the health care law is expected to draw at least 3,000 attendees to the foot of the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, where Trump will address House and Senate Republicans. Organizers include a slew of liberal advocacy groups based in the region, like the Center for Popular Democracy, and ONE PA, as well as local labor unions.The effort got a push Wednesday from the official Twitter account of last weekend’s Women’s March: “We must continue to stand together & send a message to our new administration.” Organizers are hoping to capture some of the momentum from the weekend protests to drive up turnout.City officials noted that “other demonstrations without permits are also expected to occur throughout the day.” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that at least two other protests are planned: a “Queer Rager” dance party outside the Loews on Wednesday and an immigrant-rights protest on early Thursday. The GOP retreat, which began Wednesday and ends Friday, is being secured jointly by the Secret Service and Philadelphia Police.James Henry, the Secret Service Agent in charge of the Philadelphia Field Office, said the agency would establish a secure perimeter around the Loews beginning early Thursday morning. Outside the perimeter, security would be left to local police to monitor protests and any threats to the president or his motorcade route. “We developed the entire security plan with the Philadelphia Police Department,” he said. “I’m very comfortable with our plan.”A spokeswoman for Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney noted that the police also worked closely with the Secret Service and other authorities to secure the Democratic National Convention in July.“They oversaw protests in the thousands over 4 days in the middle of a heat wave during the DNC – and made not a single arrest,” said the spokeswoman Lauren Hitt. “So while we are preparing, we are not unduly concerned.”Lawmakers who helped organize the retreat said they anticipated demonstrations and expressed support for their right to protest.“We welcome the dialogue, discussion and conversation,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) chairman of the Senate Republican Conference “There are people obviously who feel strongly. There are people who have different views of the role of government and what they expect Congress to do. We … assume that people are going to register their strong opinions.”Thune’s counterpart in the House, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, said she hoped “to see us come together as a country and unify.”“Part of that is a commitment ensuring that we are listening to everyone,” she said.

Jackie review – a symphony of grief at the White House

Natalie Portman is extraordinary as JFK’s widow, but the real star of Pablo Larraín’s kaleidoscopic film is Mica Levi’s scoreIn its 6 December 1963 issue, Life magazine published “An Epilogue” for John F Kennedy which enshrined an idea that would come to define his legacy. Citing the Lerner and Loewe musical beloved by her husband, Jackie Kennedy told reporter Theodore H White: “There’ll be great presidents again… but there’ll never be another Camelot.” It was an idea that stuck, effectively immortalising JFK’s all-too-brief tenure in the White House as a lost golden age. “Don’t let it be forgot,” Jackie kept repeating, “that there once was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.”A fictionalised version of this encounter provides the framework for the Chilean director Pablo Larraín’s Jackie, a dizzying kaleidoscope of reconstruction, reportage and reinvention that mirrors its heroine’s fragmented state of mind in the days surrounding JFK’s death. At its heart is an extraordinary performance by Natalie Portman as the icon caught in the eye of a violent storm of grief, politics and media management. With her husband’s blood hardly dry on her clothes (scenes of Jackie removing grotesquely stained hosiery have a horrible intimacy), the former first lady must pack her bags, comfort her children and stage-manage a funeral to rival that of Abraham Lincoln.

Giuliani to advise group promoting Trump's agenda

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has signed on as an adviser to a political group that is being set up to promote President-elect Donald Trump’s ambitious agenda.In an interview on Thursday evening, Giuliani, a close Trump ally who had once hoped to become secretary of state, said he had decided to play an active role in boosting the newly formed Great America Alliance, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, to help advance Trump’s policy goals through what is expected to be a wall of Democratic opposition.“Winning the election is one thing. Getting the agenda through is a second thing, and we can already see that there are going to be obstacles in the way,” he said. “There’s got to be something here to back up what Donald Trump wants to achieve because if you look at [a] list of what he wants to achieve, Democrats are going to fight — and on some of them, they’re going to fight to the death.”On the eve of Trump’s inauguration, Giuliani made an appearance at a downtown Washington party hosted by Great America Alliance. He was joined by several other high-profile Trump supporters who had signed on to help the group, including Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and actor Jon Voight. Also making an appearance at the party, which was held at the Loews Madison Hotel, was former New York Gov. George Pataki.Great America Alliance is being overseen by Ed Rollins, a longtime Republican Party strategist, and Eric Beach, a GOP fundraiser who worked on Giuliani’s 2008 presidential bid. During the 2016 election, Rollins and Beach helped to oversee Great America PAC, a super PAC that spent over $25 million in support of Trump’s candidacy. Giuliani appeared in some of its commercials.Great America Alliance isn’t the only pro-Trump outside group taking shape. A top Trump campaign aide, Brad Parscale, has been holding talks about launching an organization that would advocate the president-elect’s agenda. Parscale has won the backing of Jared Kushner, Trump’s influential son-in-law and incoming senior adviser. Giuliani said he expected Great America Alliance to air commercials on several major agenda items, including health care and tax reform. He also said he could foresee the group advocating on behalf of Trump’s Cabinet nominees, some of whom are facing increasingly fierce confirmation fights.“Clearly,” he said, “the Democrats are going to play hardball.”Giuliani was once seen as the front-runner for secretary of state but later took himself out of the running for the post, which was eventually awarded to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. Earlier this month, Trump named Giuliani an informal adviser on cybersecurity issues.
