Chinese Interbank Lending Freezes; Government Bond Trading Halted After Massive PBOC Liquidity Drain
“We’re an empire now,” Karl Rove nefariously asserted in 2004, “and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Rove might have said that 12 years ago, but the words hauntingly describe our situation in 2016 — Oxford Dictionaries, incidentally, named “post-truth” the international word of the year — with facts seemingly relative, truth debatable, and a falsely-premised war on fake news, Orwell must be rolling in his grave.
In fact, given these telling circumstances, perhaps Oxford Dictionaries didn’t go far enough — this year epitomizes a new era of post-coherence. Rove and his ilk — the dynasties Bush and Clinton, reigning powers for nearly 30 years — must chuckle behind closed doors as Americans quarrel savagely over the authenticity of falsehoods and facts, alike.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (citing U.S. Department of Justice reports), nearly 800,000 children are reported missing each year. That’s more than 2,000 children abducted every single day.
Is Trump preparing to tackle in the rampant pedophilia and child abduction crisis in the United States?
The future president tweeted that something has to be done about “missing children grabbed by the perverts” and suggested that a “fast trial” followed by the “death penalty” is the answer.
Costa Rica powered by renewable energy for over 250 days in 2016 … Costa Rica completes 2016 without having to burn a single fossil fuel for more than 250 days. 98.2% of Costa Rica’s electricity came from renewable sources in 2016. The state-run Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) reported that renewable energy sources accounted for 98.2 per cent of the country’s electricity and more than 250 days were powered completely by renewable sources.

Costa Rica has long been powered by a mix of fuels but is making progress toward having the government run everything.
That’s the real unsayable truth behind the governments so called progress with various different kinds of power.
Bloodshed in the Windy City has reached war zone levels, and now the mainstream media has been forced to address the ‘Ferguson effect’ and the failure of gun control.
In an interview on Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes, prominent South Side priest and activist, Michael Pfleger, asked, “Why has violence been allowed to surge so profoundly in this country for so long, particularly in Chicago? The number one victim of violence is black and brown.”
“When a child is shot and killed in this city… and there’s no idea of who may have done it – I put a $5,000 bounty on the head,” he explained. “We’ve given out about 24 rewards.”

Washington does not possess any evidence of Russia allegedly influencing the US presidential election despite claims by mainstream media, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In an interview to another US broadcaster, Spicer said that Trump and his team would wait for the final report from intelligence services before making any decisions regarding alleged Russia’s hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
Though complaining of Russian disinformation and propaganda, the US media spread completely false stories about Russia being about to close the Anglo-American school in Moscow and having hacked into the Vermont electricity grid in just three days, though the first story originated with a US not a Russian source, and the second story would not have survived basic fact checking with the electricity utility involved.
In a Western media world where the words “Russia” and “fake news” are rapidly becoming conflated, it is interesting to note that two stories about Russia which gained unusual prominence in the Western media over the last few days were both false, and that Russia far from being responsible for either was the target of both.
