Russia Warns Of "Proportional Response" To Obama's "Paranoia"

"The US sanctions against Russia are the signs of a real paranoia..and are futile and counter-productive... I can only reconfirm that this hysteria obviously, deals a blow on the foreign policy plans of the incoming administration of the president-elect...."

Paul Craig Roberts Worries "What Is Henry Kissinger Up To?"

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is reportedly advising US president-elect Donald Trump how to "bring the United States and Russia closer together to offset China’s military buildup."

Anthony Bourdain Slams "Privileged" Liberals For Their "Utter Contempt" Of Working-Class America

"The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we're seeing now."

The Rich Got Richer In 2016 - $237 Billion Richer!

While Warren Buffett did best of all the billionaires in 2016, he was far from alone. As Bloomberg reports, thanks to the Trump rally, the rich got a lot richer in 2016 - $237 billion richer to be exact - but the biggest fortunes on the planet whipsawed through $4.8 trillion of daily net worth gyrations in 2016.

Oliver Stone Slams The Establishment's "The Russians Are Coming" Narrative

"My God, the ghost of Izzy Stone is back from the 1950s! For that matter, so is Tom Clancy from the ’80s. False thrillers will now be written about the Russians hacking the American elections. Money and TV serials will be made. I’ve never read such hysterical junk (call it what it is -- “fake news”) in the New York Times, in which the editorials have become outrageous diatribes..."

China Hits A Fork In The Road

There’s simply too much debt all throughout the system, and it’s due for a behemoth restructuring. You look at some of the numbers and graphs, and you wonder: what were they thinking?

Amazon & Alibaba Are The World's Most Crowded Trades

While everyone in the world appears convinced that (and positioned for) bond yields go higher, stocks go higher, gold goes lower, and risk has been vanquished, UBS notes that the world's largest, most active overweight crowded trade is in stock (followed cloesly by UnitedHealth.

GWU Eliminates U.S. History As A Requirement For History Majors

"According to a lot of professors, the founding fathers are a bunch of old rich white guys who owned slaves. As a result, they're no longer relevant."

Mainstream Media Is Now Whining About The "Fake News" Hysteria It Created

After coming under attack, the alternative media successfully appropriated and reassigned the now ubiquitous term “fake news” to a variety of disingenuous mainstream media outlets. The corporate media is not too happy about this, and it’s doing what it does best (aside from cheerleading for war); it’s whining about it to its readers.

Trump Responds To Obama's Russian Sanctions: "Time To Move On"

"It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things.."

Did Big Media Run Fake Headlines on the Deutsche Bank “Settlement”?

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:
Typically, it takes two to settle bank fraud charges – the bank committing the fraud and the law enforcement agency bringing the charges. But in the case of the announcement late last Thursday evening that Deutsche Bank and the U.S. Justice Department had reached an agreement to settle claims against the bank for allegedly swindling investors in the sale of toxic residential mortgage backed securities, all that could be heard was the sound of one hand clapping in a press release issued by the defendant, Deutsche Bank. Nowhere to be found was a statement of particulars on what the bank was admitting to or a man behind a podium bearing the seal of the U.S. Justice Department in a press briefing room, as typically occurs in a real settlement.
The lack of substantive details to this “settlement” and no confirmation from the Justice Department that an agreement actually existed did not hamper expensive media real estate from running with the story. The New York Times plopped the story on the front page of its business section on Friday, December 23 – the last trading day before Christmas – under the decidedly declarative headline: “Deutsche Bank to Settle U.S. Inquiry Into Mortgages for $7.2 Billion.”

Russian TV: NEW WORLD ORDER has begun! – Economic Predictions can prove it! RUS Warns USA!

from USA-CANADA News:

Make 2017 Your First Year of Real Abundance

from The Mind Unleashed:
When we live in a scarcity-based system it’s easy to believe that having abundance is near impossible, but that’s just because we’ve probably got the wrong idea of what true abundance actually is.
The ideologies that dominate our societal landscape – particularly operationally – have skewed our collective view on what’s important and what’s not. For example, our materialistic culture which has been deceived by the debunked pop philosophy of the same name has generated a plethora of issues which have distracted the masses from aligning with natural law, divine values and their true nature.

ICC Begins to Pale

from The Daily Bell:
Rising nationalism leaves international criminal court at risk Top lawyer warns withdrawal of countries and limiting of funding threaten future of tribunal … Six months after the international criminal court’s new Dutch palace of justice was formally opened on windswept sand dunes beside the North Sea, a tide of nationalist sentiment is threatening to undermine the project. Three African states have begun withdrawing from its jurisdiction, raising fears that a succession of others will follow suit. Russia has removed its signature from the founding statute, the Philippines and Kenya are openly contemplating departure and key member nations – including the UK – have limited its funding.
So the ICC Criminal Court may be on the way out and that surely a positive development. Here at The Daily Bell, we are not fans of the growing worldwide justice. We would rather see justice move in the other direction and become more privatexed again.

Soros: Trump is a “Would Be Dictator” Who Threatens the New World Order

Leftist vitriol in aftermath of Trump’s victory accelerates
by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars:
Billionaire globalist George Soros has penned a panicked rant in which he decries President-elect Donald Trump as a “would be dictator” who threatens the future of the new world order.
In an article for Project Syndicate, Soros begins by mentioning how he lived under both Nazi and then Soviet rule in Hungary before asserting that “various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise.”
This claim is confounded by the facts, which show that, “The share of the world population living in democracies (has) increased continuously.”
