"Fake News" Site Threatens Washington Post With Defamation Suit, Demands Retraction




As the "fake news" narrative grows, and The House quietly passes a bill to "counter Russian propoganda" websites, one alleged 'fake' news wesbite - as defined by the farcical PropOrNot organization - has struck back. Naked Capitalism's Yves Smith has threatened The Washington Post with a defamation suit and demanded a retraction.

FAKE NEWS = FAKE MARKETS …

by Bill Holter, JS Mineset, via SGT Report.com:
Growing up in the 1960’s, I can still remember hearing and reading about Russian propaganda. While I am certain some of what the Western press reported was “spun”, even a 10 year old could see through much of what Russia was trying to portray to its people.
Fast forward to present day, we seem to have switched places. The current mainstream media reports defy nearly any and all logic on a daily basis. Reporting has obviously been very poor for many years and it really did not matter what the subject was. Economics, finance, geopolitics, home grown politics, it has not mattered, logic has been turned on its head. I could go through example after example but would now require a book …or more likely a “series” of books. Using just one example to illustrate the lunacy, the U.S. now has 95 million OUT OF THE WORKFORCE and thus no longer counted as “unemployed”! Where is the logic here? Mainstream media reports it (under their breath) while cheerleading the lowest unemployment rate in decades. The White House and Wall Street both report “strong” employment with glee. The fact remains, our true unemployment number as calculated back in the day of “Russian propaganda” is somewhere around 20%.

A 'Disintegrative Winter': The Debt And Anti-Status Quo Super-Cycle Has Turned

How would you describe the social mood of the nation and world? Would anti-Establishment, anti-status quo, and anti-globalization be a good start? These are all characteristics of the long-wave social-economic cycle that is entering the disintegrative (winter) phase.

20 Years Later, Greenspan's "Irrational Exuberance" Has Become Even More Irrational

December 5, 1996:  “Clearly, sustained low inflation implies less uncertainty about the future, and lower risk premiums imply higher prices of stocks and other earning assets.  But how do we know when irrational exuberance has unduly escalated asset values, which then become subject to unexpected and prolonged contractions?"

Renzi Delays Resignation Until Senate Passes Budget Law

Matteo Renzi met with Italian president Sergio Mattarella to discuss the terms of his resignation.

Germany Outraged After Afghan Refugee Arrested In Rape, Murder Of 19 Year Old Female Student

Trump Advisor Says Administration Not Looking To "Rip Up NAFTA" Or Impose "Quote-Unquote Tariffs"

"I don’t think anybody in the administration is looking for quote-unquote tariffs, but I think they are a cudgel if you will to lay out there if we can’t get the trade deals to be right-sided to now benefit the American people.”

Wall Street Analysts Are Slowly Losing It

"I can’t justify any of this. The lesson investors are getting is that everything is a buying opportunity and you need to not miss the boat. Brexit? Bullish. Trump winning the election? Bullish. Italy saying no to the referendum and the Prime Minister handing in his resignation? Bullish. Heck, all we need is the entire Belgian banking system to go kablooey and the S&P 500 will be at 3,000 by Christmas Eve."

Fed Labor Market Conditions Index Contracts For 5th Straight Month

Despite a small rise MoM, The Fed's own Labor Market Conditions Index has now deteriorated year-over-year for 5 straight months, despite significant upward revisions over the last 6 months, most notably in September and October.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg Goes into Financial Decline After Threatening to Censor ‘Fake News’

by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub:
Facebook market shares decline over past weeks
The world’s fifth-richest person, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, worth an estimated $49B, has seen a sharp decline in corporate finances over the past 27 days, after announcing that he may censor whatever he deems to be ‘fake news’ from his massive social media platform.
Zuckerberg has lost $3.7B since Nov. 8, which amounts to about a “7% decline in Facebook’s share price,” according to Forbes.
This comes after an assistant college professor by the name of Milissa Zimdars and the mainstream media attacked Intellihub.com, Infowars.com and Breitbart.com by labeling the trio of sucessful independent websites ‘fake news,’ despite the fact the mainstream media has lost almost all of its credibility amongst the general public.

Obama’s Legacy: A Failing Healthcare System

by Paul A. Philips, Activist Post:
When Obama leaves the oval office in January and hands over the US presidency to Trump he will leave behind a troubling legacy. In a number of different ways he has betrayed those he was supposed to serve, the American people. Whether it has been through his involvement in healthcare or running up a serious national debt to the tune of over 20 trillion dollars, or the climate change scam, rising mass poverty and unemployment, homelessness, etc., he will affect many Americans for generations to come.
Taking the case of health as an example, he will leave behind the consequences of his involvement in a seriously failing healthcare system that has done far more harm than good. Some have argued, quite justifiably, that Obama’s involvement in the US healthcare (sick care) system has been deliberately set up to fail due to a number of reasons, which will be explained.

Victory At Standing Rock: Dakota Access Pipeline Permit Denied

from The Anti Media:
In a long-awaited victory for the Stan
ding Rock Sioux Tribe, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied a permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline, tribal leadership announced late Sunday.
The agency will not allow the pipeline to be built under Lake Oahe, a reservoir near the tribal reservation, without a full environmental impact assessment that examines alternative routes for the pipeline.
While acknowledging that it may only end up being a temporary pause in pipeline construction, many see it as an incredible victory for the water protectors, who have faced water cannons, mace, rubber bullets, mass arrests, and more in their months-long struggle to protect their drinking water and treaty land.

Pearl Harbor Facts and Proof

by Carl Herman, Washington’s Blog:
Stinnett conclusively demonstrates with vast and incontrovertible documentary evidence that in order to precipitate an unwilling American public into supporting intervention in the Second World War, President Roosevelt oversaw the contrivance and deployment of a closely-guarded secret plot to goad the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor. The plan was set in motion in October 1940, and its development closely monitored through decoded intercepts of Japanese diplomatic and military radio communications. Knowledge of the plan was limited to 13 Roosevelt administration members and chief military officers, and 21 members of Naval Intelligence and related operations. Once it produced the intended result and the attack impended, the Pacific fleet’s modern naval vessels were sent to sea from Pearl Harbor, leaving seven antiquated World War One battleships as decoys. Meanwhile, the Japanese fleet was tracked with radio intercepts from its formation off the Kuril Islands on November 16, and its sailing for Hawaii on November 26; its course was cleared of all shipping with a Vacant Sea order on the 22nd; and Pearl Harbor naval patrols were ordered out of the area on the 25th. Intelligence of the impending attack was withheld from the officers (Admiral Kimmel and General Short) charged with defending Pearl Harbor, who were kept uninformed of the plan and intelligence of the impending attack, and scape-goated afterward.

Global Financial Markets Plunged Into Chaos As Italy Overwhelmingly Votes ‘No’

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Italian voters have embraced the global trend of rejecting the established world order, but the “no” vote on Sunday has plunged global financial markets into a state of utter chaos. The euro has already fallen to a 20 month low, Italian government bonds are poised for a tremendous crash, and futures markets are indicating that both U.S. and European stock markets will be way down when they open on Monday. It is being projected that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s referendum on constitutional reforms will be defeated by about 20 percentage points when all the votes have been counted, and Renzi has already announced that he plans to resign as a result. When new elections are held it looks like comedian Beppe Grillo’s Five-Star movement will come to power, and the European establishment is extremely alarmed at that prospect because Grillo wants to take Italy out of the eurozone. In the long run Italy would be much better off without the euro, but in the short-term the only thing propping up Italy’s failing banking system is support from Europe. Without that support, the 8th largest economy on the entire planet would already be in the midst of an unprecedented financial crisis.

A Major Banking Collapse Looks Imminent

by Nick Giambruno, International Man:
This surprises almost everyone… You don’t own the money in your bank account.
Once you deposit money at the bank, it’s no longer your property. It’s the bank’s.
What you own is a promise from the bank to repay you. It’s an unsecured liability. Technically, you’re a creditor of the bank. And that means a bank bail-in would probably burn you.

Trump: Trojan, Traitor, or Tried and True?

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:
I risked losing my fellow anti-establishment readers with the suggestion that Trump may be an establishment Trojan horse. After seeing Trump choose Pence as VP and a Goldman Sachs exec as campaign finance manager, I was concerned the establishment knew a citizen’s revolt was brewing and made sure that even the road to revolt led back to Rome. Now that we are seeing Trump make actual decisions, we can test that hypothesis.
Trump’s INSTANT reversal on major campaign promises
Trump has not simply backed off on some of his campaign promises, but has backed away from the promises that seemed to fire up his supporters the most. That he scaled the wall across the Mexican border down to a wall in some places and mere fences in others is, frankly, less significant than the main-stream media is playing it to be. If the border patrol thinks a fence will do as well as a wall in some places, why spend more money on a wall? Scaling down the wall could just be Trump, the pragmatist, applying common sense as he listens to the border patrol about their needs and seeks the most cost-effective solution. Trump is a pragmatist.

As We Approach The ‘Midnight Hour’, All Of Obama’s Totalitarian Executive Orders Remain In Place And Now He’s Trying To Jam Through More Before Trump Gets Into Office – Why Now?

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
Despite the fact that President-elect Donald Trump can undo most of Barack Obama’s Executive Orders with a stroke of the pen on his first day in office, the Obama administration is now attempting to push through a flurry of ‘midnight actions’. As many as 98 final regulations were under review as of November 15th according to this Politico story with seventeen regulations awaiting final approval considered “economically significant,” with an estimated economic impact of at least $100 million a year.
While the Washington Times recently reported that Obama will ask Trump to keep all of the executive orders in place, Trump is already getting ready to erase major parts of the ‘Obama legacy’ we learn.
According to the website 1461 DAYS, which has allegedly been tracking the Obama EO’s since January 25th, 2009, Obama has signed 260 Executive Orders as of November 28th of 2016. Quite interestingly though, among those 260, Executive Order #13603 signed by Obama on March 16th of 2012 is nowhere among the ones listed on their website. ANP has reached out to 1461 DAYS to find out why EO13603 is not on their list.

Thoughts from the Frontline – A Big Swirling Italian Mess

by John Mauldin, Gold Seek:
Italians are headed to the polls this Sunday (and thus this letter is reaching you a little earlier than usual) – but no one is quite sure what is on the ballot. On the surface, the voters are considering whether to approve constitutional reforms that should make the government operate more effectively (or not, depending on your point of view). But many people think the real question is whether the current government should stay in power and whether Italy should remain yoked to the Eurozone.
Coming up with an answer isn’t necessarily helpful when you can’t even agree on the question. However Italians vote, it may take some time to figure out exactly what the result means to Italy, the Eurozone, the EU, and the global economy. I am fairly confident that the ultimate outcome won’t be good, no matter what they choose. The problems are deeper than simple structural reform can cure.

WINNING: Ford Motors Open to Deal with Trump to Save U.S. Jobs

by Lee Stranahan, Breitbart:
Bloomberg News is reporting that Mark Fields, the CEO of Ford Motor Co., is open to brokering a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep jobs in the United States.
Ford’s CEO indicated he’s looking for a turnaround in the sort of overbearing government regulation that Trump campaigned against, including fuel standards put in place by the Obama administration and the EPA in 2012. As Bloomberg reported:
“We will be very clear in the things we’d like to see,” Mark Fields said in an exclusive interview at Bloomberg offices in Southfield, Michigan. “We’ll continue to advocate for currency-manipulation rules to promote free and fair trade. One of our priorities is making sure fuel-economy standards reflect market realities, tax reform in general we would be very supportive of, and the safe deployment of autonomous vehicles.”

Aleppo Has Sent the West into Panic Overdrive

by Martin Berger, New Eastern Outlook:
Till the very end of November both the EU and Washington sought to convince international community that none of the parties to the Syrian conflict are strong enough to have a decisive advantage over the opponent on the field of battle.
At the same time, Western political circles took all possible steps to prevent Damascus and Russia from intensifying their offense against ISIS in Syria, particularly in Aleppo. To this end, US Secretary of State John Kerry has stepped up diplomatic efforts to reach an agreement with Russia on Syria before the sitting administration leaves office, The Washington Post would note. According to this newspaper, the Secretary of State doesn’t care about the alleged “humanitarian crisis” in Aleppo, what he fears is that the Trump administration can strike a different kind of deal with Moscow, which would essentially put the United States on the same side with Bashar al-Assad.

Why PizzaGate Is Not Going Away Despite The Mainstream Media’s Desire [To Bury It]

from Michaelfmartin.com:

It becomes more amazing by the day as I surf through the media to find shocking stories not fully covered or hidden.  If you read my last article The Problem Is, PizzaGate Is Possible, you would think this topic would be making daily headlines.  It isn’t among the giants of the mainstream media.  When PizzaGate is discussed, it is to paint the alternate media as dangerous.  They even reached the point of creating a “fake news” list that includes real journalism like Breitbart and Info Wars.  The mainstream media wants to blind America from a possible Satanic sex trafficking ring involving the nation’s political elite.  The alternate media refuses to yield and continues to investigate what is known as PizzaGate.  They then share their articles on social media like Twitter and Gab. This is why PizzaGate is not going away despite the mainstream media’s desire.

Report: Massive Voter Fraud Uncovered in Nevada

Massive voter fraud in the 2016 Presidential election has been uncovered in Nevada. Megan Barth from Newsmax said
Well it appears Nevada, which has voted for the winner of the Presidency for the past 108 years may have been stolen and must be investigated by the Feds. Not Obama feds but incoming Attorney General Jeff Session must investigate this issue.
Barth interviewed Republican Assembly Candidate for District 15, Stan Vaughan, who had actual proof of the massive voter fraud in his Clark County district. A total number of 17,086 votes were cast in the District for both Republican and Democrat candidates. However, when confirmation letters were sent to the voters in the District, the US postal service returned mail from 9,200 of these voters.

London-Based Nutritionist Reveals 8 Foods That All Men Should Be Eating

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:
You can’t really go wrong if you eat a healthy diet, but there are certain foods that men in particular should be focusing on if they want to boost their health. It’s always sensible to eat a lot of organic fruit and vegetables and lean protein, regardless of your gender, but men have different needs when it comes to certain vitamins and minerals.
When you consider the fact that one out of every six men in the U.S. is affected by prostate cancer at some time in their life, the need to manage lifestyle factors like diet to help curb your risk is clear. A study published in the Cancer Prevention Research journal showed that high-fiber diets can help control prostate cancer progression.

OPEC Out! This Week’s Meeting Was Really a Bust!

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:
In May, I wrote an article titled “The OPEC Epoch is Over,” which pronounced OPEC officially dead and predicted oil prices would plunge again. So far, I’ve been wrong about a second perilous plunge in oil prices. However, even as market heavyweights herald this week’s OPEC meeting for pumping up oil prices, a few voices join this lightweight in saying this meeting proves OPEC is over.
The Financial Times says, “Oil Output-Cut Pact Spells ‘the Beginning of the End’ for OPEC.”
The recent OPEC oil output-cut deal “will come to symbolize the passing of one of the world’s most powerful cartels,” the Financial Times predicts…. “After 50 years in control of the oil price, OPEC has submitted to the economic power of a much-changed global market. The deal represents the recognition of their own impotence by a group of countries that once held unchallenged power,” writes Nick Butler, a visiting professor and chair of the Kings Policy Institute, London.

McCarthyism Is Breaking Out All Over — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Seasoned journalist, White House official, and historian Pat Buchanan has responded to the Washington Post’s fake news about the independent journalists on the 200 List being Russian agents by reminding us that the US government has always been a major disseminator of fake news. http://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2016/12/01/fake-news-war-party-lies/
No one knows who is behind the newly created PropOrNot website that came up with the list of 200 “Russian agents,” but it is as likely as not the State Department funded National Endowment for Democracy, which has been peddling propaganda as fake news since its inception. Indeed, it was created for the purpose of destabilizing the Soviet Union.
