John Harwood Asks "Who Do You Believe America?" - Gets Surprising Answer

Is Liberal Democracy An Endangered Species?

Donald Trump’s victory represented a rejection of Barack Obama’s America. And whether he succeeds, what is there to cause America to look back with nostalgia on the America Obama came to represent? Our Founding Fathers believed that democracy represented the degeneration of a republic; they feared and loathed it, and felt that it was the precursor of dictatorship. They may have been right again.

Fear of “Big Government” Near Record High Despite Trump Win

by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:
Gallup has an interesting poll out today concerning top fears of US citizens. Despite the election of Donald Trump, Americans Still See Big Government as Top Threat.
As businessman Donald Trump prepares to become the nation’s 45th president, Americans continue to express more concern about the threat big government poses to the U.S. than big business or big labor. Two in three Americans (67%) identify big government as the country’s biggest threat. That is below the record high of 72% in 2013 but still on the higher end of the range since the mid-1960s.

Trump Set To Receive "Intelligence" Briefing On "Russian Hacking"

As Trump readies to meet with the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan and FBI Director James Comey later this afternoon for his "intelligence" briefing on "Russian Hackers," the question remains whether this meeting will finally provide some definitive, tangible evidence or just more propaganda?  We have a guess, how about you?

Where The December Jobs Were: Nurses, Waiters, And Waste Cleaners

According to the BLS at least, some 155,000 seasonally adjusted jobs were added in December, arbitrarily goalseeked as they may have been. Where were they?  Here is the answer:

In Obama's Final Jobs report, A Record 95.1 Million People Were Not In The Labor Force

Putting the exclamation point on a trend that has marked Obama's entire presidency, in the final Obama jobs report, the BLS announced that the total number of people not in the labor force grew once more, rising by 18,000 in December, and a whopping 841,000 in the past three months, to a new all time high of 95.102 million Americans no longer in the workforce.

Jobs Disappoint In Obama's Final Month, Rise Only 156K, But Average Hourly Earnings Jump

With Wall Street expecting a 178K payrolls print for president Obama's final full monthly December jobs report, the headline December nonfarm payrolls increase of just 156K is likely to disappoint. However, the poor December headline number will be offset by the sizable upward revision to the November number, which rose to 204K, as well as the big jump in average hourly wages which rose 0.4% in Obama's last full month.

Bullsh*t Non-News "Russia Celebrated Trump’s Win" Story Repeated Everywhere

Without realizing the irony, NBC offered this tidbit “Highly classified intercepts illustrate Russian government planning and direction of a multifaceted campaign by Moscow to undermine the integrity of the American political system,” said the official.

Obama Awarded Distinguished Public Service Medal

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
In another move of pride and arrogance, like that of a dictator, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, the usurper-in-chief, was awarded the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
Defense Secretary Ash Carter presented the award to Obama on Wednesday during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the Obama held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Of course, Carter said the medal was merely a “token of appreciation” for Obama’s service as commander-in-chief.

Warning Goes Out ‘The Elite Are Taking This To The Next Level’ As We Get Another Sign They’re Pushing For A ‘Lights Out Scenario’

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
The new story over at CTVNews Canada reports the US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have warned Ontario, Canada’s main electricity distributor that they may have been a target of malicious Russian cyber-activity. While Russia has officially denied any wrongdoing, we see in their story an attempt to continue the globalists narrative – to keep the minds of the people of America and Canada on the claim Russia is hacking into ‘the grid’.
While a recent report by the Washington Post that Russia had hacked into the power grid here in America was proven to be ‘fake news’, leading them to publish a pitiful disclaimer, the damage was already done – a ‘bug’ was placed into the minds of millions of Americans that Russia was hacking into ‘the grid’ and was capable of doing so again, a claim that the new story out of Canada appears to corroborate.

Annual US Auto Sales Fell for First Time since 2009 at GM, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, Toyota, VW, BMW…

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
US “car recession” spreads among largest automakers.
The media hoopla has been deafening. In December, “new vehicles sales” – defined as the number of new cars, trucks, and SUVs that dealers sold to their customers, including fleets – rose 3.1%. That was stronger than “expected.” And in the media reports, there was euphoria between the lines.
Automakers and dealers had certainly tried. Inventories are high, layoffs and plant closings have already been announced, and so every effort was made to move the iron and pull out the year. No incentive was spared to get the job done.

New Report: Global Warming Is A Rockefeller Scam

by Baxter Dmitry, Your News Wire:
The Rockefeller family, an unfathomably wealthy banking and oil dynasty, has been hijacking governments, media organizations, universities, non-profits, and other power centers to expand its control over the economy and the energy sector in particular, according to a recently released investigation by a watchdog group.
The Rockefeller dynasty has largely created, bankrolled, and weaponized what is known as the “green” movement “as a means to expand their empire over the past three decades,” the report found.

The Coup Against Truth — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
Jon Rappoport’s mocking of the US presstitutes is superb:
“Vladimir Putin is the secret president of the United States.
“Yep. That’s it. The US is now the USSR. It’s all over. Trump is a Communist who took orders from Putin. Trump is a Red. That was his game all along. He’s a billionaire Commie.”
Ridicule is effective, and nothing deserves ridicule more than the Washington Post, New York, Times, CNN, and the rest of the presstitutes who pretend to be real journalists. But as I have emphasized, and other real journalists, such as Glenn Greenwald (see, for example, and ) imply, the fake news recklessly promoted by the presstitutes brings with it the threat of thermo-nuclear war.

Jon Corzine Settles Over MF Global Collapse: Agrees To Lifetime Ban, $5 Million Fine

from ZeroHedge:
Three years ago, in February 2013, traders were outraged upon learning that the National Futures Association refused to ban former MF Global chief Jon Corzine from trading with other people’s money, rejecting a motion brought before that body’s board of directors to do so. The decision was a blow to a vocal group within the commodities trading world who – noting that Corzine has not been held accountable by the government for alleged crimes – wanted to see him publicly upbraided by his peers in the market.
All that changed today when Corzine agreed to pay a $5 million civil fine to settle a lawsuit by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission over the 2011 collapse of the former New Jersey governor’s brokerage, MF Global Holdings. More importantly, under the settlement disclosed on Thursday, Corzine also agreed to be barred for life and never again work for a futures commission merchant, or register with the CFTC in any capacity.

Gridlock: Trump’s First 100 Days Will Be the Most Chaotic In American History

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Divine Providence has been realized, it will soon be January 20th of 2017 and Trump is going to be inaugurated.
It is still going to be a long 15 days until Trump is sworn in. Assuming that Trump escapes the bullet of an assassin, there is not a successful false flag attack that brings down the country and this results in martial law that will keep Obama in power; This is what the early days of a Trump presidency will look like. More importantly, this article demonstrates what every American must do as we join forces to defeat the globalists as we re-install a sense of nationalism, pride and adherence to the rule of law in America.
