Jill Stein Wins the Recount

from WhoWhatWhy:

The first vote in Wisconsin hasn’t been counted yet, but the winner of the recount is already clear: Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.
There is hardly a scenario in which she doesn’t emerge victorious:
–          If the recount is conducted and Donald Trump wins, which remains the most likely outcome, then Stein is the one who responded to the plea of desperate progressives and launched a last-ditch effort to stop Trump.
–          If Clinton prevails, then she is a hero to the left regardless.

by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars:
After Donald Trump successfully agreed with air conditioner company Carrier to keep 1,000 jobs in the United States, a flashback video of Obama mocking Trump’s promise to stop jobs leaving the country illustrates how woefully wrong Obama was to doubt Trump.
“But for those folks who have lost their job right now because a plant went down the Mexico, that isn’t going to make you feel better. And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back, and when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?” said Obama.

Black Friday, Fake News And Gold

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
Black Friday and “Black Friday” weekend have largely become irrelevant. Every retailer in the U.S., from auto dealers to furniture stores to online tennis apparel shops have been advertising “Black Friday” sales since November 1st.
We have no doubt that the Census Bureau will concoct phony holiday sales for November (reported December 14) and December (reported in January). But the truth – the non-Russian influenced truth – is that retail sales spending per capita this holiday on an inflation-adjusted basis is going to be less than in 2015.
