    For a second day, shaking rattled areas in Northern California. The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 4.7-magnitude quake rocked areas near Salinas and Hollister, west of Fresno County just before 1 p.m. Tuesday. The earthquake comes after an overnight of shaking set off by two quakes Monday night. A 4.5-magnitude earthquake and a 2.5-magnitude quake hit northeast of San Francisco. Tuesday’s quake hit near Tres Pinos, in the mountain area on the Central Coast about 80 miles west of Fresno. There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage.

    Two of the Clinton Foundation’s shady international partners have been arrested for fraud. And experts and law enforcement officials in the United States say this spells potential big trouble for Bill & Hillary Clinton and their own shady ‘charity’ known as the Clinton Foundation. Authorities in India have arrested businessmen brothers Malvinder Singh and Shivinder Singh in an alleged fraud case — one of many linked to this duo. The Singh brothers are former promoters of Fortis Healthcare and Ranbaxy Laboratories and are no newcomers to sweeping allegations of fraud. It is believed untold millions of dollars in kickbacks were funneled by the brothers into the bank accounts of the Clinton Foundation for peddling fake HIV drugs to impoverished communities and children with the help of the Clinton’s. The Clinton’s might have also siphoned millions of dollars from the alleged schemes into their personal bank accounts as well. Charles Ortel, the financial anaylst who foretold the collapse of General Electric, said Monday that the arrest of the Singh brothers in India was more than significant to the case building against the Clinton Foundation. Ortel has been dogging the Clinton’s charity for years now with regular and fact-filled broadcasts on CrowdSource the Truth. In short, Ortel is the closest non-governmental authority of the many schemes cooked up by the Clinton’s and their trusty charity cartel. Ortel said the fear for the Clinton’s is that the Singh’s will sing and rat out the intricacies of previous frauds linked and illicit funds to and from the Clinton Foundation. One federal law enforcement source told True Pundit on Tuesday that the wheels were already in motion to inteview the brothers. FBI agents would likely be dispatched to India to begin a dialogue with the brothers and their legal reps, the source said.

    President Donald Trump could have been more deft and diplomatic in how he engineered that immediate pullout from northeastern Syria. Yet that withdrawal was as inevitable as were its consequences. A thousand U.S. troops and their Kurdish allies were not going to dominate indefinitely the entire northeast quadrant of a country the size of Syria against the will of the Damascus regime and army. Had the U.S. refused to vacate Syrian lands on Turkey’s demand, a fight would be inevitable, whether with Turkey, Damascus or both. And this nation would neither support nor sustain a new war with Turks or Syrians. And whenever the Americans did leave, the Kurds, facing a far more powerful Turkey, were going to have to negotiate the best deal they could with Syria’s Bashar Assad. Nor was President Recep Erdogan of Turkey going to allow Syrian Kurds to roost indefinitely just across his southern border, cheek by jowl with the Turkish Kurds of the PKK that Erdogan regards as a terrorist threat to the unity and survival of his country. It was Russia that stepped in to broker the deal whereby the Kurds stood down and let the Syrian army take over their positions and defend Syria’s border regions against the Turks. Some ISIS prisoners under Kurdish control have escaped.

    Waterborne crude exports from Corpus Christi, TX, reached a record high of 11.379mn bbls, or 1.626mn bpd, in week ending September 27, buoyed by increased flows into the port from new pipelines coming online, according to our North American Waterborne report. The high exports from Corpus Christi partially drained crude inventories that grew 2.7mn bbls between mid-August and late September, following the start-up of Plains All American's 585,000 bpd Permian-to-Ingleside, TX, Cactus II pipeline and EPIC'S 400,000 bpd Permian-to-Corpus Christi EPIC NGL pipeline, currently in interim crude service, according to our Texas Gulf Coast Storage report. Our data showed waterborne exports from Corpus Christi ports, including the offshore Corpus Christi Lightering Area, surged 5.394mn bbls, or 771,000 bpd, week-on-week to the new record high in the week ending September 27. Volumes surpassed the previous record high of 7.392mn bbls, or 1.056mn bpd, set two weeks before and marked the third record high in four weeks. The second-highest export total from Corpus Christi, at 10.25mn bbls, or 1.464mn bpd, followed shortly after in the week ending October 4. The 2019 year-to-date export average from Corpus Christi prior to September was 502,000 bpd. By comparison, volumes averaged 395,000 bpd overall in 2018. Record-high exports from Corpus Christi contributed to the highest exports ever from the U.S. overall in the week ending September 27, as they jumped to 29.612mn bbls, or 4.23mn bpd. Export volumes passed the previous high mark of 28.659mn bbls, or 4.094mn bpd, set in week ending July 5, our data shows. The recently higher exports from Corpus Christi led to a record monthly high in September at 1.07mn bpd, up 491,000 bpd from August. The largest portion of the shipments in September headed to Northwest Europe at 343,000 bpd, a 129,000 bpd month-on-month increase, while 181,000 bpd left for East Asia, a month after posting only 37,000 bpd. The second-highest amount in September from Corpus Christi departed for Eastern Canada at 291,000 bpd, an increase of 76,000 bpd from the month before. Meanwhile, refineries in the Mediterranean received about 116,000 bpd of crude from the U.S. on the month, up 52,000 bpd from August.

    After defeating 100% of the ISIS Caliphate, I largely moved our troops out of Syria. Let Syria and Assad protect the Kurds and fight Turkey for their own land. I said to my Generals, why should we be fighting for Syria…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019 ….and Assad to protect the land of our enemy? Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me, whether it is Russia, China, or Napoleon Bonaparte. I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019 Some people want the United States to protect the 7,000 mile away Border of Syria, presided over by Bashar al-Assad, our enemy. At the same time, Syria and whoever they chose to help, wants naturally to protect the Kurds…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019 ….I would much rather focus on our Southern Border which abuts and is part of the United States of America. And by the way, numbers are way down and the WALL is being built! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019

    How much of the monetary gains from the Trump economic speedup have gone to the middle class? If you ask Democratic senators and presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders, the answer to that question is ... almost none. " Trump's economy is great for billionaires, not for working people," Sanders likes to say. Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi grouses that under the Trump agenda, "the rich get richer, and everyone else is stuck paying the bill." Uh-huh. That's been the standard liberal riff for the last couple of years as they try to explain how a president who they said would create a second Great Depression has created boom times with the lowest inflation and unemployment in half a century. But not a word of this is true, according to new Census Bureau data on the incomes of America's middle class. This study by former Census Bureau researchers and now statisticians at Sentier Research has found gigantic income gains for the middle class under Trump. The median or average-income family has seen a gain of $5,003 since Trump came into office. Median family income is now (August 2019) $65,976, up from about $61,000 when he entered office (January 2017). Under George W. Bush, the household income gains were a little over $400 in eight years, and under Barack Obama the gains were $1,043. That was in eight years for each. Under Trump, in less than three years, the extra income is about three times larger. These gains under Trump are so large in such a short period of time that I asked the Sentier Research team to triple-check the numbers. Sure enough, on each occasion, the income swing was $5,000. This is a bonanza for the middle class, and the extra income in tens of millions of Americans' pockets is getting spent. Consumers are king in America today, and fatter wallets translate into more store sales. Home Depot and Lowe's recently recorded huge sales surges. The tax cut also added an additional $2,500 to a typical family of four's after-tax incomes. So after taking account of taxes owed, the income of most middle-class families is up closer to $6,000 in the Trump era. Memo to Pelosi: That ain't crumbs.

    It's more important and has a greater effect to hear it coming from the President himself than from obscure candidates who can't win. And Trump has made plenty of anti-war moves and will make more, he can't change everything all by himself and he must fight the entire establishment. (including Tulsi who suddenly opposes pulling out of Syria when he talks about it)
