Julian Assange Winning Popular Vote For Time’s Person of the Year, Kim Jong Un Beating Hillary

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:
You’d have to be living within one of Brazil’s so-called “Lost Tribes,” those indigenous people groups who’ve had no contact with the outside world, to not know that Julian Assange has probably been the most influential person on the planet in 2016. Assange’s organization, Wikileaks, created havoc in the 2016 U.S. presidential race, arguably making for a spectacle only Barnum and Bailey could rival.
As 2016 is coming quickly to a close, still left to decide is Time’s Person of the Year for 2016. And who’s leading in the reader polls? You guessed it! No, not Vladimir Putin, or Donald Trump. It’s Assange! And if you’d like to vote for him, or anyone else, you can do so by clicking here. Currently, he leads with 10 percent of all the votes cast, just ahead of Trump (9 percent) and Putin (8 percent).

"Centralized government is the doom of humankind.

Is Marine Le Pen The French Donald Trump?

The differences between Trumpism and the French far right are not in themselves handicaps for the French but rather adaptations to different environments. The only thing that could be a prejudice for the National Front is that it might already be too mainstream. The future is uncertain. Marine Le Pen has a long way to go before she can become the French Donald Trump.

Zuckerberg Just Revealed Facebook’s 7-Point Plan To Censor “Fake News” And It’s Chilling

by Claire Bernish, Activist Post:
Until corporate media and the neoliberal establishment refused to acknowledge their direct role in the election of Donald Trump and threw a temper-tantrum about misinformation on social media to scapegoat blame, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg balked at the notion faulty reports circulating on social media had anything at all to do with the November 8th shocker.
“Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99 percent of what people see is authentic. Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post to his platform last Saturday. “The hoaxes that do exist are not limited to one partisan view, or even to politics. Overall, this makes it extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election in one direction or the other.”

Debt is the Barbarous Relic. Not Gold.

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:
The first form of culture,” wrote historian Will Durant, “is agriculture.”
And he was right. When human beings discovered 10,000 years ago that the soil would provide more food than they could possibly eat, this changed everything.
For the first time ever, early humans could actually work WITH nature and reliably control their food production.
They were no longer dependent on unpredictable wildlife or the dangers of the hunt.

Former CEO Of UBS And Credit Suisse: “Central Banks Are Past The Point Of No Return, It Will All End In A Crash”

from ZeroHedge:
Remember when bashing central banks and predicting financial collapse as a result of monetary manipulation and intervention was considered “fake news” within the “serious” financial community, disseminated by fringe blogs?
Good times.
In an interview with Swiss Sonntags Blick titled appropriately enough “A Recession Is Sometimes Necessary”, the former CEO of UBS and Credit Suisse, Oswald GrĂ¼bel, lashed out by criticizing the growing strength of central banks and their ‘supremacy over the markets and other banks’. The former chief executive officer claimed that the use of negative interest rates and huge positive balance sheets represent ‘weapons of mass destruction’. He calls for an end to the use of negative interest rates.

The Hill’s Group Response To The USGS Wolfcamp Shale 20 Billion Barrel Deposit

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
Yes, the magic words; “technically recoverable”. I wonder how much “technically recoverable” oil is on Mars? There may be a lot, but oil that will ever see the surface of the Martian landscape is a different matter. Those would be reserves, and at $45/ barrel there is exactly zero. The same that can be said for the Wolfcamp.

by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:
In Part One of this article I discussed the arrival of Grey Champions in previous Fourth Turnings; their attributes, deficiencies, and leadership skills; and why Donald Trump is the Grey Champion of this Fourth Turning – whether you like it or not. Now I will try to make sense of what could happen next.
“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American people. The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind. The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.

Not Since JFK, Has a President Spit Into the Face of the Globalists, Until Now

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Peace is impractical. War is inevitable. That is what the globalists and their puppet media would have mankind believe. The problems that are created by war are man-made and therefore, can be solved by man. However, our right to self-determination and peace have been robbed from us by people like David Rockefeller.
When war becomes the number ONE business venture of the globalists, they obfuscate the benefits of peace and prevent the directing of a nation’s assets towards the betterment of its people. Rockefeller, Rothschild et al, hold humanity in such disdain that they seek to make money on the forced decline of mankind. For in their eyes, mankind cannot be allowed to prosper and grow, man must be subjugated and turned into cannon fodder in the next bankster-created war.

The Right Wing Group Behind Donald Trump’s Rise Aims to Keep Fear Alive

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:
Citizens United, the nonprofit organization that brought the U.S. Supreme Court case that has unleashed unlimited corporate spending in elections, sent three of its top strategists to run the Donald Trump campaign in its floundering days of 2016. Here’s the timeline:
On July 11, 2016, the Trump campaign announced that it had “enlisted the services of Bryan Lanza, who will serve as the Deputy Communications Director for Surrogates. Mr. Lanza’s focus will be on organizing and mobilizing Trump supporters in an effective way that allows Mr. Trump’s America First message to resonate with voters.” Lanza came from Citizens United where he had been Communications Director.
