Former Lifelong Democrat Admits "Obama Is A Failed President"

"I’m a former lifelong Democrat, stating here a clear and incontestable fact: Barack Obama is a failed President..."

Washington Post Caught Spreading More Fake News About "Russian Hackers"

The Washington Post has been exposed again as nothing more than a liberal propaganda machine after admitting that their own story about the alleged "Russian hacking" of a Vermont utility was a total fraud: "Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electric grid."

Ex-CIA Agent on Report Tying Russia to Election Hacking: ‘Absolutely No Evidence’

by Carey Wedler, The Anti Media:
On Thursday, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security released a joint analysis report addressing persistent allegations that the Russian government hacked the U.S. election.
Though, as the White House fact sheet asserts, the report largely consists of tips to improve cyber security and prevent future attacks, it also appears to cite evidence Russian Intelligence Services (RIS) actively attempted to hack into U.S. systems, a campaign the government has named “GRIZZLY STEPPE.”

Accounting Gimmicks Won’t Stop The U.S.A. Titanic From Sinking

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
The U.S. Government has gone to great lengths in using accounting gimmicks to prop up the financial system and domestic economy. One area where this is readily apparent is the disconnect between the rising U.S. debt versus the annual budget deficits.
Mish Shedlock wrote about this in his article, U.S. Deficit at $590 Billion But Debt Up $1.2 Trillion: Sleight Of Hand Magic:
The US deficit is up $590 billion so one might think total US debt would rise by that amount or at least something close to that amount.

Criminal Witch Hunt In Dallas Pension Fiasco

If one wants to place blame, then blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the legislature that authorized the plan and established the absurd pension assumptions... However, politicians will never point the finger at themselves. So the witch hunt is on.

At Least 35 People Killed After Shooters Dressed As Santas Open Fire In Istanbul Nightclub - Live Feed

Turkey greeted the New Year with another tragedy after at least 35 people were killed and 40 wounded around 1:15 am local time, when gunmen dressed as Santas opened fire on New Year's revelers at a nightclub in Istanbul on Sunday morning, Istanbul Governor Vasip Sahin told reporters.

"Something For Nothing" All-Weather Funds Disappoint In Post-Election Era

Variously marketed as "all-weather", "all-season", or "bulletproof", the so-called "risk-parity" strategies of some of the world's largest hedge funds have been anything but 'stable' since the election as the combination of leverage and bond losses have crushed the gains from an exuberant equity market.

Global Recession And Other Visions For 2017

"...the Fed’s efforts to ‘normalize’ interest rates will be tabled.  The economy simply can’t afford higher rates.  This isn’t Trump’s fault, of course.  He’s been handed a badly damaged economy. Quite frankly, there’s really no way to fix it.  Decades of economic degradation are irreversible." 

Narrative Smashed By Stats - "Most Americans" Did Not Vote For Hillary Clinton

Democrats have simply seen a continuously dwindling moral-standing to speak for all Americans, even as the population has grown in the past 8 years... By setting some simple statistics straight, we honestly hope 2017 ushers in a new era of knowledge, contentment and worldly views, as we leave the disparaging partisan choke-hold of the 2016 elections behind.

Tesla Sued Over Model X "Spontaneous Acceleration"

"The vehicle spontaneously began to accelerate at full power, jerking forward and crashing through the interior wall of the garage, destroying several wooden support beams in the wall and a steel sewer pipe, among other things, and coming to rest in plaintiffs' living room."

Russian Hackers Said To "Penetrate US Electricity Grid" Using Outdated Ukrainian Malware

A Vermont state electric utility, Burlingont Electric, announced on Friday it had found on one of its laptops not connected to the power grid a malware code the U.S. government says is used by Russian hackers. However, as usual in such cases, there is more to the story than initially reported.

Pentagon Admits US Airstrike On Hospital "May Have Killed Civilians"

Adding to concerns about the civilian toll of the US air war against ISIS targets, the Pentagon yesterday admitted that they carried out an airstrike against the parking lot of a Mosul hospital, conceding that they “may have killed civilians” in the attack.

Chicago Violence Worst In 20 Years: "Not Seen This Level Of Disrespect For Police Ever"

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2016 Top Ten Conspiracies

by Patrick Henningsen and Shawn Helton, 21st Century Wire:

It’s that time of year again. As events become more complex – with new stories seemingly folding into one another, the task of unraveling and deciphering plot lines becomes even more difficult. As with previous years, 21WIRE has has been there for all the biggest news stories, both domestically and internationally. As new scandals unfolded, we tracked the media coverage and followed their narratives, before assembling the puzzle pieces together to determine where the criminal and power elite interests converge. All this, to arrive at the real story which was lurking somewhere behind the obvious headlines.
As we saw previously in  2015, there were many high-profile incidents and stories which didn’t make the list – like the western media’s inverted coverage of the Liberation of East Aleppo and the BREXIT vote, the bizarre murder of Jo Cox, along with the Oregon Standoff, the untimely death of Justice Anton Scalia, the Zika Virus, Twitter’s Bana of Aleppo and Dusty Boy. What aboutthe Pentagon paying British PR firm Bell Pottinger  $540 million to make fake al Qaeda videos (we weren’t surprised)? All these could’ve easily been included in this year’s conspiratorial omnibus, but were omitted because we only had room for ten main conspiracies.

MUST READ: PEDOGATE – A Special Report on the Washington, D.C. Pedophilia Scandal

The Cover Is Blown Off The Ongoing Worldwide C.I.A. Black Pedo-Operation
from State of the Nation:
P E D O G A T E: A Global Child Exploitation Crime Syndicate
Pizzagate Represents Only a Single American Franchise Within a Worldwide Child Trafficking Operation Known As Pedogate
NOTE: This important message is meant for members of the Pizzagate public group, the VOAT Pizzagate investigation, the former contributors to the Pizzagate sub-reddit, and the many citizen journalists, researchers and investigators dedicated to exposingPizzagate truth.  The following “Special Report” provides a big picture context that is necessary to correctly understand what Pizzagate is really all about.  What has been uncovered thus far is certainly HUGE by any standard.  However, compared to the globalPedogate crime syndicate, Pizzagate is just one of many similar pedophilia rings that dot the globe. The crucial point is that now that Pizzagate has been blown wide open as a CIA operation, it is time to direct precious time and attention to the many other pedophile scandals around the world.

2017: ‘The Year Everything Changes’ – Will ‘Fall Of World Government’ Lead To The Fulfillment Of Prophecy Of The Total Destruction Of America?

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
With the globalists here in America quickly running out of time to get the US into a World War 3 with Russia that could bring about the deaths of tens of millions and lead to a very rocky start for Donald Trump’s presidency in just 3 weeks, we’re not surprised to learn that they’ve just expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian compounds here in America according to this new story from Yahoo News.
Leaving the Russians just 72 hours to get out of America, the diplomats are allegedly being expelled in response to a campaign of intimidation of American diplomats being waged in Moscow and interference in the US elections.
With Obama also set to launch some type of ‘revenge attacks’ against Russia for that election interference, we have to wonder if the globalists in Washington DC will be successful in the 21 days they have left in power to get America embroiled in the kind of war we might never come back from.

Russian Foreign Ministry: OBAMA Has Destroyed US-Russia Relations, We’re Tired of His Lies

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
On Friday Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova released a response to the Obama administration’s latest actions.
Zakharova blamed Obama for destroying US-Russia relations and blasted the lame duck president for the continued lies about Russian hackers affecting the November election.
The outgoing US administration has not given up on its hope of dealing one last blow to relations with Russia, which it has already destroyed. Using obviously inspired leaks in the US media, it is trying to threaten us again with expansion of anti-Russian sanctions, “diplomatic” measures and even subversion of our computer systems. Moreover, this final New Year’s “greeting” from Barack Obama’s team, which is already preparing to leave the White House, is being cynically presented as a response to some cyber-attacks from Moscow.

Philippines President Condemns Alleged US Plot To Overthrow Him

from True Activist:
Outspoken Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called US ambassadors “spies” amid local news reports that the US was seeking to destabilize his government.
Just as the US announced its “retaliation” against Russia for allegedly interfering in the US election, new information began to emerge about yet another US attempt to destabilize a democratically elected government. This Tuesday, the Manila Times reported that a “highly placed source” confirmed that a former US ambassador to the Philippines had created a “blueprint” for actions intended to destabilize Rodrigo Duterte’s government. The ambassador in question was Philip Goldberg, who just recently stepped down from the ambassador position. Goldberg had outlined various strategies to be carried out over an 18-month period in the document including co-opting the media, the military, regional allies, and senior government officials as well as actively supporting the opposition. These are all hallmarks of the US’ regime change policy, a policy which has no shortage of examples.

from InfoWars:
Story quickly falls apart after investigation finds claims to be inaccurate.
The Washington Post reported Friday that the U.S. power grid had been hacked by the same Russian actors accused of breaching the DNC – the only problem, the grid wasn’t hacked.
According to the report, malicious “code” associated with Grizzly Steppe, the name given to Russian hacking operations by the Obama administration, was found within the system of a utility company in Virginia.

Anonymous Just Hacked Bilderberg & Issued Ominous Threat — ‘Work for Humanity’ Or Lose It All

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:
It’s one of the most secretive and powerful organizations you’ve probably never heard of; the Bilderberg Group. With virtually no mainstream corporate media coverage of the event, the ultra-exclusive events take place in the open as the world remains uninformed. In fact, many people still believe that the Bilderberg Group is a conspiracy theory — in spite of many of the world’s elite admitting to attending as well as the group publicly listing their event.
Nearly 130 politicians, financiers, and industrialists attended this year’s conference, with the guest list including the chief of the International Monetary Fund, as well as the former heads of the CIA and MI6. What was once considered among the world’s most secretive meetings, the Bilderberg Meeting, has been held annually since 1954. Until recent decades, the actual existence of the meetings had been generally disregarded by the mainstream media as nothing more than a fringe “conspiracy theory.”

“Guilty, But Not Punished”: Another Banking Criminal Let Off The Hook

by Jeff Nielson, Sprott Money:

It is a verdict which we see over and over when it comes to the crimes of the Big Banks, the central banks, and their minions. These felons are caught committing serious offenses, again and again, yet receive either no punishment, or at worst some token slap on the wrist.
The banking felon to escape punishment this time is IMF criminal, Christine LaGarde . LaGarde’s criminal conviction came while she was still France’s Finance Minister. It involved a $400 million government pay-out authorized by LaGarde, against the advice of several other Finance Ministry officials, to “French tycoon” Bernard Tapie. LaGarde announced she wouldn’t appeal being let off the hook for her crime. How magnanimous.

by Sean Adl-Tabatabai, Your News Wire:

Benjamin Netanyahu says he is ready to release thousands of documents proving evidence of a Washington pedophile ring
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just declassified 400,000 documents that expose child trafficking and a child sex ring in Washington.
Following Obama’s decision to abstain at the U.N. Security Council earlier in the week, Netanyahu has warned him that he is willing to release information that will potentially damage powerful people in Washington.

What Is The Obama Regime Up To? — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Obama has announced new sanctions on Russia based on unsubstantiated charges by the CIA that the Russian government influenced the outcome of the US presidential election with “malicious cyber-enabled activities.”
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a report “related to the declaration of 35 Russian officials persona non grata for malicious cyber activity and harassment.”
The report is a description of “tools and infrastructure used by Russian intelligence services to compromise and exploit networks and infrastructure associated with the recent U.S. election, as well as a range of U.S. government, political and private sector entities.”

2016 Ended: Saying Goodbye To A Roller-Coaster Year

The importance of information grew exponentially and 2016 will be remembered as a year of information wars. No information sources are fully trusted anymore. Internet has become a battlefield where information wars are waged to influence large masses of people and a considerable number of world leaders.

In 2017 Address, Merkel Decries "Distorted Picture" Of Refugee Policy "Painted By Populists"

In an awkwardly similar rhetoric to the failed slogan of Hillary Clinton, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told her nation that "together, we are stronger. Our state is stronger," giving no ground on her increasingly questioned open-border refugee policy as she slammed the "distorted picture" being painted by populists.

'Policing For Profit' Goes To The Next Level

It’s bad enough getting arrested – especially when you didn’t do anything to warrant it. This happens all the time, because the threshold for arresting someone is very low. This isn’t new – or news. What is new – and ought to be news – is that several states have begun charging people 'processing' and 'incarceration' fees for their bogus arrest and subsequent just-as-bogus caging.

Goldman's 10 Most Important Questions For 2017

Goldman Sachs is relatively optimistic about growth in 2017, for three reasons: first, despite the lack of spare capacity, US recession risk remains below the historical average; second, financial conditions should remain a growth tailwind - at least in the first half of 2017; and third, we expect a fiscal easing accumulating to 1% of GDP by 2018. However, uncertainty remains and here is what Jan Hatzius and his team believe are the ten most important questions for 2017.

"This Would Cross Our Red Line" - Chinese Military Considering Measures To "Cripple" Taiwan

"We can just cut them off economically. No more direct flights, no more trade. Nothing. Taiwan would not last long," a retired senior officer who maintains contacts with the PLA told Reuters. "There would be no need for war", he said however another source added that "If Trump challenges 'one China' after becoming president, this would cross our red line."

"Something Stinks" - Like Iraq WMD Fiasco, Russia Story Doesn't Add Up

Is there any evidence those expelled are “intelligence operatives”? Any hard evidence Russia was behind the Hillary hacks? Any credible evidence that Putin himself is to blame? The answers are No, No, and No. Yet, once again the American press is again asked to co-sign a dubious intelligence assessment.

You’ll hear hundreds of theories and rationalizations on Trump’s miraculous victory, but a reason you will almost never hear is also the most likely one: Trump won the election because he serves the interests of the establishment.

India Cash Ban Could Get Worse: “We Don’t Even Have Enough Money to Buy Food”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
Behold, the power of banksters, and the very rapid shift into the cashless, digital control grid that has been an objective now for many decades.
Suddenly, things are moving faster than anyone could have imagined.
Officially, the government of India believes their demonetization efforts to haul in some 86% of the cash in circulation will bolster the economy and improve the situation for the world’s second most populous country.
But on the ground, and in reality, the pain is still spreading – and it could become even worse.

Obama trying to start WWIII before Jan. 20; feds “probe” Drudge Report with DDoS attack; NaturalNews and InfoWars targeted for cyber attack take downs

by Mike Adams, Natural News:
Excuse the brevity of this entry, but there’s not enough time to detail all the evil that’s unfolding right now. Suffice it to say that Obama is right now attempting to start a raging war before he leaves office. There are two types of attempts he’s making: 1) War with Russia, and 2) War against the American people. He’s also hoping to be part of a successful Marxist coup on January 20, but that’s very unlikely to go anywhere.

Obama is trying to start World War III before Jan. 20

Check and to stay up to speed on this. Paul Craig Roberts also has extremely important insight on what’s shaping up (he was part of the Reagan administration), and my own contacts inside the bureaucracy are signaling that Obama is “setting landmines across the bureaucracy” to function as sabotage trip wires that will blow up in President Trump’s face.
Barack Obama — who is quite literally a “sleeper cell” agent who has been trying to destroy America from day one — is now attempting to provoke Russia into military conflict. He has now begun expelling Russian diplomats from the USA as a cover story for the democrats’ completely fabricated “Russian hacking” conspiracy theory regarding the hacking of email accounts belonging to Jon Podesta and the DNC. (It was actually an inside job achieved by a Bernie Sanders supporter.)

How Musicians Die

The passing of George Michael this week reminded many of the seemingly short life expectancy of musicians (and performers in general). In fact, as on study found, while blues, jazz, and country singers typically live as long as the average American; rock, techno, punk, metal, rap, and hip hop stars die significantly sooner.

Why Politicians Are To Blame For Most Terrorist Attacks

In over-reacting, governments and media play into the hands of the terrorists who want to create fear and demonstrate their strength, but whose greatest gains come when they provoke an exaggerated self-destructive response. There is a dangerous disconnect in the minds of governments and news organisations between what happens in the war in Iraq and Syria and the long-term consequences this has on the streets of Europe.

These Are The Most Expensive Zip Codes In America

Sagaponack’s 11962 (in the Hamptons) and Atherton’s 94027 retain their top positions as the most expensive ZIPs in the country, despite seeing a considerable drop in median sale prices, but California isn't getting any cheaper! Out of the 100 priciest ZIP codes, an impressive total of 72 are located in CA. NY trails behind, with a total of 21 ZIP codes, half of which are located in New York City.

Eric Zuesse: America’s Secret Planned Conquest Of Russia

The U.S. government’s plan to conquer Russia is based upon a belief in, and the fundamental plan to establish, “Nuclear Primacy” against Russia — an American ability to win a nuclear war against, and so conquer, Russia.

The Political Left's Shmoo Theory Of Education

“Uneducated” is the favorite insult and excuse of the political left. In the past year alone, for example, a lack of education among voters has been used to explain each of the left’s electoral failures, as well as to dismiss criticisms of its people, policies, and institutions. These defenses are dubious to say the least.

Of the 15,479 Syrian refugees admitted by the end of Thursday:

Israel’s Descent Into a Moral Abyss

by Henry Makow, Ph.D., Henry Makow:
The Zionist agenda has always been a “Greater Israel.” The West Bank settlements must be seen in this context.
On May 24, 1948, David Ben Gurion confided in his diary: “We will establish a Christian state in Lebanon, the southern border of which will be the Litani river. We will break Transjordan, bomb Amman and destroy its army, and then Syria falls, and if Egypt will still continue to fight, we will bombard Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo.”
Mightier than the nuclear bomb, the lie is Satan’s most powerful weapon. The bomb merely devastates. The lie steals souls. It enlists millions of naive people to Satan’s cause.

Infographic — All of the World’s Money and Markets in One Visualization

from visualcapitalist:
How much money exists in the world?
Strangely enough, there are multiple answers to this question, and the amount of money that exists changes depending on how we define it. The more abstract definition of money we use, the higher the number is.
In this data visualization of the world’s total money supply, we wanted to not only compare the different definitions of money, but to also show powerful context for this information. That’s why we’ve also added in recognizable benchmarks such as the wealth of the richest people in the world, the market capitalizations of the largest publicly-traded companies, the value of all stock markets, and the total of all global debt.

Goldman to Trump: Situation Assessment, Government Bail-ins and the Precious Metals Threat

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
A guest post from Stewart Dougherty. Stewart included some thoughts in his email to me that I thought should be shared as a preface to his essay:
Hi Dave:
Some pretty heady stuff, particularly the part about the Fed’s balance sheet being a lie. (I am 100% convinced of this, but cannot prove it, at least not yet.) And remember, Bernanke was caught issuing $10 trillion in swaps to foreign banks, all of which was supposed to remain a complete secret. It is not as if they haven’t been caught doing what I am saying they are still doing, to an even larger degree.

Brutal Reality Check Coming To Most Of America The First Week Of 2017 – More Proof Emerges The American People Are Being Lied To In A HUGE Way!

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
The new story from The Weather Channel tells us that a brutal reality check is coming for much of America during the first week of 2017. With temperatures once again expected to be dropping way below normal with single digit temps to well below zero across much of America by the end of the first week of 2017, this ‘roller coaster’ ride we’ve noticed recently of warmer temperatures quickly leading to brutally cold ones will continue. As this new Weather Channel video reports, brutally cold air is returning for the new year.
According to Rory Spencer PHd in his latest forecast, single digit temperatures could push as far south as Florida by the end of next week with temperatures going down to 30 degrees below zero or colder in parts of the US. As seen in the GFS model forecast for Friday, January 6th below, by next week, another frigid blast of winter will have arrived across America.

A Tale of Two Housing Markets: Hot and Not So Hot

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:
If we had to guess which areas will likely experience the smallest declines in prices and recover the soonest, which markets would you bet on?
Though housing statistics such as average sales price are typically lumped into one national number, this is extremely misleading: there are two completely different housing markets in the U.S. One is hot, one is not so hot.
Just as importantly, one may stay relatively hot while the other may stagnate or decline.
All real estate is local, of course; there are thousands of housing markets if we consider neighborhoods, hundreds if we look at counties, cities and towns and dozens if we look at multi-city metro regions.

Trump to Meet With Intelligence Officials to Clarify Russian Spying Accusations

from Sputnik News:
“In the interest of our country and its great people,” Trump promised to meet with members of the FBI, DHS, and other intelligence agencies “to be updated on the facts of this situation,” according to a statement from the transition team.
The US slapped sanctions on Russia Thursday as part of retaliation for accusations that Russian intelligence services interfered with US elections. 35 Russian diplomats and their families were ordered to exit the country within 72 hours.
The US must “move on to bigger and better things,” Trump’s team said, but in order to uphold the American people’s interests he will consult with the intelligence community about their recent findings.

Clooney and the “White Helmets,” Dupe or Dope?

by Gordon Duff, New Eastern Outlook:
George Clooney, one of Hollywood’s biggest box office names, a man with pretentions for the presidency for sure and sworn enemy of President-elect Donald Trump, has announced plans to make a film honoring Syria’s White Helmets. To the much of the public subjected to fake and censored news, the White Helmets are heroes. Always in areas controlled by “moderate opposition” or, quite frankly outright terrorists like ISIS and the group formerly named Jabat al Nusra, this organization has been lauded as the savior of the Syrian people from the beastly depredations of the “regime” and its “brutal dictator,” Assad.
The truth is something a bit different, a truth it would have taken Clooney only a few moments on the internet to discover, that or the most minimal research, which he either did or didn’t do. If he didn’t do the research, he is a dupe, meaning he has been fooled into supporting a terrorist group against a legitimate democratically elected government for purposes of protecting and supporting paid mercenary murders. Sound harsh? Probably not harsh enough as we will get into shortly.

US Left Out As Russia And Turkey Broker Nationwide Syrian Ceasefire

by Darius Shahtahmasebi, The Anti Media:
The United States’ self-appointed position of peace broker in the Middle East has been steadily diminishing over the last few years. The superpower’s ability to waltz into a nation with its sophisticated military — proceeding to call the shots — has also seemingly disappeared.
Just hours ago, the Syrian government and opposition groups on the ground agreed to a nationwide ceasefire aimed at ending the bloody conflict. Despite the fact the United States military is on the ground in Syria, the United States had no hand in the ceasefire whatsoever; it was reached courtesy of regional powers Turkey, Russia, and Iran. Despite the fact Russia and Turkey have both openly supported polar opposite sides of the conflict, they have promised to act as guarantors of the ceasefire.
