John Bolton: Trump Needs To Confront Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, And Embrace Forever War...

by Kurt Nimmo, Activist Post:
Because Donald Trump has zero foreign policy chops, he will delegate that job to his new secretary of state. With every passing day, it appears the person to fill that job will be John Bolton, a diehard neocon.
On Saturday Bolton spelled out what he considers to be the foreign policy priorities of the new administration.
Bolton writes the top concern for America on the foreign policy front are “the closely related threats of radical Islamic terrorism and the Middle East’s spreading chaos.”

The Era of the Alternative Media Has Arrived – Real Check and Balance Has Returned – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:
Where to go now? What is the next plan of action, now that the West has continued on with its anti-globalist trend? With the election of Trump, we are far from out of danger and now, the real hard work begins.
Now is the time to keep Trump on the straight and narrow path. It is time to ensure that he holds himself accountable to his campaign promises and it is time to keep a close eye and check on what unfolds as he begins his presidency.
Supporters of him, the strong right wing that dominated the alternative and social media landscape, are what got him elected, along with his common sense rhetoric and anti-politically correct agenda. Therefore, it is up to the alternative media to take up the baton and call it like it is.

An "Anti-Establishment" Trump Would Pardon Edward Snowden

Trump’s legacy as president is a blank slate, it could go either way. If he wants to keep his current base of support and prove his skeptics wrong, he would be wise to pardon Edward Snowden, and dish out the first real blow to the establishment during his first days in office.

Chicago Will Burn — Soros Thugs Moving In for the Kill

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Five blocks of buses have arrived in Chicago. These are paid protestors and they are there because George Soros has paid for them to be there.
The idea is to promote as much violence as possible so that this becomes a military issue- Some think that this will spread to other cities and national martial law will result.
If this happens, Obama will never leave office. If you thought that Obama was being too nice to Trump in the transition, you are correct and now you may know why.

Zerohedge Included in What NY Magazine Calls ‘Extremely Helpful List of Fake and Misleading News Sites’

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Before I get into the meat of this article, I want to remind you of a few paragraphs I wrote back in the August post, Questioning Hillary’s Health is Not Conspiracy Theory:
As I look at the landscape in 2016 to-date, I observe emergent signs that alternative media is finally beginning to take over from the legacy mainstream media when it comes to impact and influence. The mainstream media (unlike with John McCain in 2008), had decided that Hillary Clinton’s health was not an issue and chose not to pursue it. Many in the alternative media world took a different position, and due to mainstream media’s failure to inform the American public for decades, the alternative media drove that issue to the top of the news cycle. That’s power.

The War On Cash Goes Nuclear In India, Australia and Across The World

by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
We are living in a world where paper fiat money is becoming a novelty.
In Australia, Citibank has just become the first to declare that it no longer will accept notes or coins. Only digital transactions. This follows on the heels of India banning large cash denominations.
The cash-oriented changes of these two countries are especially troubling in light of the eventual plans to phase out large denomination euro notes and the US 100 dollar bill by 2018. Just as the Economist predicted nearly 30 years ago, the world is going cashless.

War on Cash Intensifies: Citibank to Stop Accepting Cash at Some Branches

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:
Less than a week after India’s surprise move to scrap its highest denomination cash notes, another front in the War on Cash has intensified down under in Australia.
Yesterday, banking giant UBS proposed that eliminating Australia’s $100 and $50 bills would be “good for the economy and good for the banks.”
(How convenient that a bank would propose something that’s good for banks!)
This isn’t the first time that the financial establishment has pushed for a cashless society in Australia (or anywhere else).

How Come Great Britain is Trying to Tame Trump

by Jean Perier, New Eastern Outlook:
If you think that Brexit has put UK politicians into panic mode then you’ve seen none of the hysteria that broke out in London after Trump’s victory.
The thing is, that long before anyone started taking Trump seriously, British politicians were making all sorts of nasty remarks about the president-elect. Truth be told, even the the most tasteless in society might hesitate to repeat some of these remarks in public.
On the eve of the US presidential election, British politicians continued with humiliating remarks about Trump, while the Sunday Telegraph spotted at least 23 instances of UK leaders dubbing Trump as one of the most malignant figures in modern politics.

Interview: George Soros Admits He Has No Sense of Guilt to Profiting from Nazi War Crimes (Video)

by Onan Coca, Freedom OutPost:
An astonishing video is circulating on the Internet almost 20 years after it originally aired. The video exposes billionaire and liberal demagogue George Soros as the heartless and cruel man that most conservatives already believed him to be. For years Soros has been profiting off of the pain of others, most famously when he shorted the British Pound, creating chaos in the British (and world) economies. However, there is an even more deviant story of greed in Soros’ past, one that took place when he was a young man in Nazi occupied Hungary.
In a 1998 interview with CBS’ Steve Kroft, Soros admitted that he participated in the confiscation of Jewish property under the Nazi occupation. He also explained that he had no remorse for what he had done, and that if he had not participated, somebody else would have done it anyway.
