Senator Cory Booker’s ‘Ashlee Simpson Moment’


The Kavanaugh hearings were a good bet to dominate the news this week, but they were overshadowed on Thursday by the death of Burt Reynolds. Recalling the highlights of Reynolds’ illustrious career — Deliverance was my all-time favorite — sure beat suffering through a day of shameless self-promoting on Capitol Hill by Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat who evidently sees himself as his party’s frontrunner in the next presidential election. Booker laid an egg with his promise to divulge supposedly damning confidential emails authored by Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s choice to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.  Turns out the emails were neither confidential nor damning, but not before Booker had declaimed to the world — or at least to anyone who was listening, “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”  More like his “I am Ashlee Simpson” moment, assuming anyone even remembers what he said. The news media trained their cameras on him and, well, he farted. Let’s hope no other beloved actors have to die in order to drown out the hubris in Washington as the confirmation hearings run their course. Booker makes Joseph McCarthy look like a class act. If he’s the best the Democrats can come up with for 2020, Trump will get a second term.

I often wonder if Trump is personally bankrupt, as to why he ran for office.

The only thing I can certainly say about this Democlown circus is that it’s definitely not winning them any support for November. #WalkAway has probably grown by a few hundred thousand because of this week-long hissy fit!

Anyway, I forgot to send Ruth Bader Ginsburg a birthday card for her last birthday, so I want to take a moment to congratulate her on reaching the big eight-five…

The consistent accuracy of Rick Ackerman’s forecasts is well known in the trading world, where his Hidden Pivot Method has achieved cult status. Rick’s proprietary trading/forecasting system is easy to learn, probably because he majored in English, not rocket science. Just one simple but powerful trick -- managing the risk of an ongoing trade with stop-losses based on ‘impulse legs’ – can be grasped in three minutes and put to profitable use immediately. Quite a few of his students will tell you that using ‘impulsive stops’ has paid for the course many times over.

Another secret Rick will share with you, “camouflage trading,” takes more time to master, but once you get the hang of it trading will never be the same. The technique entails identifying ultra-low-risk trade set-ups on, say, the one-minute bar chart, and then initiating trades in places where competition tends to be thin.

Most important of all, Rick will teach you how to develop market instincts (aka “horse sense”) by observing the markets each day from the fixed vantage point that only a rigorously disciplined trading system can provide.

The three-hour Hidden Pivot Course is offered live each month. If it’s more convenient, you can take it in recorded form at your leisure, as many times as you like. The course fee includes “live” trading sessions (as opposed to hypothetical ‘chalk-talk’) every Wednesday morning, access to hundreds of recorded hours of tutorial sessions, and access to an online library that will help you achieve black-belt mastery of Hidden Pivot trading techniques.

The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, August 20. Click below to register or get more information.
