"Sane Indians should stay a step ahead of their rapacious government and the evolving totalitarian society, which are less and less inhibited by any institutions or values in support of liberty...

Throw in the towel already...

"Fake News" Site Threatens Washington Post With Defamation Suit, Demands Retraction

As the "fake news" narrative grows, and The House quietly passes a bill to "counter Russian propoganda" websites, one alleged 'fake' news wesbite - as defined by the farcical PropOrNot organization - has struck back. Naked Capitalism's Yves Smith has threatened The Washington Post with a defamation suit and demanded a retraction.

The Deepening Of The Deep State

The measure has not been passed by the Senate or signed into law yet, and the holiday recess may prevent that. But it is easy to see how it would empower the Deep State to shut down whichever websites they happened to not like.

In a perfect trolling of the trolls Trump tweeted “If the press would cover me accurately & honorably, I would have far less reason to “tweet.” Sadly, I don’t know if that will ever happen!”

Professor: Stop Calling All People Who Disagree with You ‘White Supremacists’

by Tom Ciccotta, Breitbart:
John McWhorter, an English Professor at Columbia University, is demanding that leftists stop labeling everyone that disagrees with them as “white supremacists.”
McWhorter, who has spoken out against the regressive elements of the left in the past, claims that there is a new leftist contingent that calls any white person who questions a position associated with minority groups as white supremacists.
“A leftist contingent is now charging any white person who seriously questions a position associated with people of color as a white supremacist,” John McWhorter, previously a linguistics professor, wrote for TIME magazine. “The idea is that if you go against a certain orthodoxy, then it isn’t only that you disagree, but that you also wish white people were still in charge, that you want people of color to sit down and shut up.”

Ohio State Student To Hannity: After Attack I Learned The Left’s More Scared of Trump Than ISIS (AUDIO)

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
A female student at Ohio State called the Hannity radio show this week and told Sean that the reaction to Trump’s election victory was like the end of the world for students and professors. Yet after the recent terror attack on campus, the very same people urged calm and understanding of Islam.
The College Fix reported:
Ohio State student: ‘After terrorist attack I’ve learned Left’s more scared of Trump than ISIS’
“After this terrorist attack I’ve truly learned that the left is more scared of conservatism and Trump and Republicans than they are of ISIS and terrorists,” Mackenzie told Hannity. “Because after this terror attack I haven’t heard anything about, you know, ‘We’re praying for the victims’ or this and that. I’ve heard things about how we need to understand Islam, the vibrant Somali community we have here, how we need to embrace them even though this is the third attack by a Somali in the last year here in Columbus, and all this stuff about, you know, Muslim sensitivity.”

The United Nations General Assembly Passes 6 Outrageous Anti-Israel Resolutions

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
Last Wednesday, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to adopt 6 outrageous anti-Israel resolutions. These resolutions address a wide variety of issues including “a two state solution”, the status of the Golan Heights and a “lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem”. Unlike UN Security Council resolutions, these UN General Assembly resolutions are not considered to be legally binding upon the parties, but they do show that virtually the entire planet is in favor of dividing the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. In addition, even though the U.S. voted against each of these resolutions, there is still a tremendous amount of buzz that the Obama administration may decide to go along with a UN Security Council resolution that would set the parameters for a “two state solution” before the end of Barack Obama’s term comes on January 20th.

‘Treated Like a Slave’ — Innocent Cop Beaten by Fellow Cops Who Mistook Him for a Criminal

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:
New York, NY — Nothing exposes the brutality of police quite like cops beating up one of their own. If police mistake you for a criminal, there is nothing you can do to stop their assault and a retired cop just learned that the hard way.
Ronald Lanier, retired Nassau County corrections officer, is now planning to sue the Garden City Police Department after he says they mistook him for a criminal, handcuffed, and then beat him.
“I’ve never been cursed, physically abused, beaten and treated like a slave as I was two days ago,” Lanier said through tears as explained how he ended up battered and in the hospital. “For somebody to grab me by the neck in the supermarket, and I’m telling you, ‘I’m one of you,’ and you disrespect it — it was like you’re just another black dude.”

Growing up in the 1960’s, I can still remember hearing and reading about Russian propaganda. While I am certain some of what the Western press reported was “spun”, even a 10 year old could see through much of what Russia was trying to portray to its people.
Fast forward to present day, we seem to have switched places. The current mainstream media reports defy nearly any and all logic on a daily basis. Reporting has obviously been very poor for many years and it really did not matter what the subject was. Economics, finance, geopolitics, home grown politics, it has not mattered, logic has been turned on its head. I could go through example after example but would now require a book …or more likely a “series” of books. Using just one example to illustrate the lunacy, the U.S. now has 95 million OUT OF THE WORKFORCE and thus no longer counted as “unemployed”! Where is the logic here? Mainstream media reports it (under their breath) while cheerleading the lowest unemployment rate in decades. The White House and Wall Street both report “strong” employment with glee. The fact remains, our true unemployment number as calculated back in the day of “Russian propaganda” is somewhere around 20%.

A Russo-Turkey War in the Cards

by Gordon Duff, New Eastern Outlook:
In the past few days, there have been monumental but unreported, unevaluated and even unseen events that make the world war a near certainty when and if Trump becomes the American president. Behind the scenes, the neocon cabal that many believe staged 9/11 and that certainly fabricated the casus belli to justify what was intended to be an American conquest of Central Asia, has now emerged as the real power behind Trump.
Behind it all, the usual cast of players, most visibly Israel’s Netanyahu, who had kept his head down after warnings from Russia but whose air force began bombing Syrian positions today, another betrayal of a deal made with Putin and most likely green-lighted by Trump.
How could so many people be wrong? One explanation could be through extrapolation of the fake news phenomenon. Fake intelligence has been the watchword since the first days of the Bush (41) administration, when the neocons now creeping back into Washington behind their stealth candidate, Trump, tried first to burn down the world.
