When It Comes To Fake News, The U.S. Government Is The Biggest Culprit

There’s the garden variety fake news that is not really “news” so much as it is titillating, tabloid-worthy material peddled by anyone with a Twitter account, a Facebook page and an active imagination. Anyone with an ounce of sense and access to the Internet should be able to ferret out the truth and lies in these stories with some basic research. Then there’s the more devious kind of news stories circulated by one of the biggest propagators of fake news: the U.S. government.

"Everything Is Not Awesome" - Don't Be The Turkey

"Things have not suddenly become awesome over the course of the past week... It is very easy to be sucked into the gushingly positive narratives and often unsupported narratives put forth by the financial media. This is particularly true when the move in asset prices can make minutes seem like days and hours seem like months. Excessive market valuations, weak internal measures, and a deteriorating backdrop has historically been a “wicked brew” for investor outcomes."

Weekend Edition: Doug Casey on How to Solve the Migrant Crisis

by Doug Casey, Casey Research:
Today, Doug breaks down the growing migrant crisis. Doug says this crisis will be “one of the biggest problems in the next generation”…and below, he discusses how it can be solved.
[This essay was originally published in the October issue of The Casey Report.]
Let me start by saying I’m all for immigration and completely open borders to enable opportunity seekers from anyplace to move anyplace else. With two big, critically important, caveats: 1) there can be no welfare or free government services, so everyone has to pay his own way, and no freeloaders are attracted 2) all property is privately owned, to minimize the possibility of squatter camps full of beggars.

The Great Con: Political Correctness Has Marginalized the Working Class

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:
So when the protected class of well-paid institutional “progressives” speak darkly of “reversing 40 years of social progress,” what they’re really saying is we’re terrified that the bottom 95% might be waking up to our Great Con of identity politics and political correctness.
To understand the Great Con of political correctness, we must first grasp the decline of the working class (self-described as “the middle class”), i.e. those who must sell their labor to earn their livelihood.
Labor’s share of the national economy has been declining for 46 years:

John Bolton Warns That Obama May Divide The Land Of Israel At The UN Before The Inauguration

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
Is Barack Obama about to make the most catastrophic decision of his entire presidency? Former UN Ambassador John Bolton is warning that there is “a lot of speculation” over at UN headquarters right now about “resolutions that recognize a Palestinian state or that try and set a boundary for Israel based on the 1967 ceasefire lines”. Of course this would have to happen before the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20th, because Trump has already made it quite clear that he will not support any UN resolution of such nature. Knowing that Trump is about to take office, advocates of the “two state solution” are putting an immense amount of pressure on Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of Israel while he is still in the White House, and at this moment we do not know what Barack Obama’s final decision will be.

Rigged; Fake; And Shortly, Forever Discredited

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
Care of WikiLeaks, Anonymous, Project Veritas, and countless other whistleblowers in the modern age of hacking and global information dissemination (not to mention, the Miles Franklin Blog), the world is on a rapid “learning curve” of the public and private criminality that has occurred for decades – and how they can make a difference by exposing it. Without a doubt, Hillary Clinton would have been President if not for the tireless efforts of, for lack of a better description, “good guys” who, from myriad facets of life, took it upon themselves to prevent perhaps the most dangerous, sociopathic “politician” in U.S. history from taking office. That, and Donald Trump’s politically brilliant scheme of repeating the buzzword “rigged” each and every day, until eventually it convinced enough marginal voters that the time for change is NOW.

How Collapse of TPP to ‘Open Door for China’ to Propose New Free Trade Deal

from Sputnik News:
Radio Sputnik discussed the potential collapse of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and its consequences for the region, with Dr. John Short, political analyst from the University of Maryland.
“One of the key trends is the difficulty of getting free trade agreements passed in democracies at the moment. There is tremendous resistance to free trade agreements. It just seems like it’s often working against the interest of ordinary working class people,” Short said.

So Much For Electing An Outsider

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:
During his run for the presidency, Donald Trump took the occasional break from insulting women and minorities to toss off some decent – even exciting – policy ideas. Term limits for congressmen and a ban on politicians becoming lobbyists, for instance, were straight from the Libertarian good-government Christmas list.
But best of all was the effective break-up of the big banks through the re-imposition of Glass-Steagall, a law passed during the Great Depression to separate taxpayer-protected commercial banks from free-to-fail investment banks.
Here’s an article published during the campaign noting Wall Street’s angst at the prospect:

Trump Inauguration Day Protests Planned

by Stephen Lendman, Market Oracle:
Protesting Trump’s inauguration misses the point. I’ve explained many times. America’s criminal class is bipartisan, democracy pure fantasy.
Deep state duopoly power runs things – one-party state governance with two right wings, independents entirely shut out. Media scoundrels are press agents for wealth, power and privilege exclusively.
Election-rigging made Trump president. Power brokers decided Hillary was too scandal-ridden to serve effectively. Her deplorable public record defeated her.
