Why Liberals Can’t Handle the Truth About Russia Hacking the Election

by Caleb Stephen, Intellihub:
Liberals can’t handle the truth because they are butthurt
Donald J. Trump won the U.S. election by a landslide but butthurt, sore liberal losers are not having any of it.
Instead, as we’ve seen, they’ve turned to malevolent tactics in an effort to express their disapproval of the democratically elected billionaire real estate tycoon.
First they tried rioting and that didn’t work. Then they tried sending death threats to electoral college members and that failed. The ‘fake news’ narrative also failed. Jill Stein’s recount was an epic fail, but not after she had carted away $6.3 million dollars from the gullible voters she scammed as part of her election recount campaign

War on Cash Spreads to India

by John Browne, Euro Pacific Capital:
Over the past year, central banks, commercial bankers and prominent economists have expressed the view that digital money and transfers should replace large denomination cash and cash transactions. This dramatic transition has been fostered under the guise of the public interest in an effort to curb terrorism, tax evasion and criminal activity. Many observers contemplate more sinister motives that involve increased government control of economic activity. The latest country to engage in this ‘war on cash’ is India.
In a TV announcement on November 8th, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the Reserve Bank of India’s large denomination 500 and 1,000 rupee bank notes, worth some $7.5 and $15 respectively, would lose their status as legal tender on midnight on December 31, 2016. That meant holders of those notes (which represent 86 per cent of the value of all outstanding rupee notes) had less than two months to exchange the notes for smaller new notes, or lose out completely. The government also mandated than any large exchanges had to be accompanied by tax returns in order to prove that the cash generated had already been taxed.

Entire Town’s Police Dept Quits Because Officials Kept Asking them to “Do Illegal, Immoral Things”

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:

One Indiana town is without a police force after every officer resigned because, they say, the town council repeatedly asked them to “do illegal, unethical, and immoral things.”
“We have had issues with the town board and there are some activities there where I felt like they were serving their own agenda,” former Bunker Hill Town Marshal Michael Thomison told a local Fox News affiliate.
Thomison and the other four officers who comprised the entire police force in Bunker Hill — population 888, according to the 2010 census — decided they’d had enough of the town council’s demands, and on Monday night tendered letters of resignation.

The 7 Most Dangerous Vaccines Injected Into Humans and Exactly Why They Cause More Harm Than Good

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:
Oh, the theory of vaccines sounds great. Inject a tiny bit of the live virus into your blood so you can build antibodies and thus immunity against the “real deal” later. If that’s all there was to it, it could actually work. Then there’s the fear mongering that’s thoroughly “inflamed” and propagated by the press, pharma, and the medical doctors of quack Western medicine. This is where the real money is made. If you get measles you could die! If you get polio you’ll surely be paralyzed for life! If you get Zika, your baby’s head will be shrunken and deformed!
