Wikileaks Press Conference Post Mortem: The CIA "Issued A Press Release, Not An Intelligence Report"
As the nationwide ceasefire brokered by Moscow and Ankara has been generally holding in Syria for ten days now, it is largely considered as the best news from the war-torn country in years, giving every chance for the conflict to be finally resolved.
After Moscow-Ankara-Tehran negotiations on Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on December 29 that the Syrian government and armed opposition groups had reached an agreement on a nationwide ceasefire in the country and on readiness to start peace talks.
By now, you’ve probably seen or heard about the young man in Chicago whose torture was live-streamed on Facebook. I didn’t watch it. I couldn’t. I won’t post it, either, but you can find it here if you feel you should see it.
The basic facts are that 4 young people kidnapped an 18-year-old man with special needs, including schizophrenia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
They used Facebook Live to broadcast their torture of the young man.

Donald Trump’s latest tweet stating that Russia is not a threat is his way of sticking a middle finger at Barack Obama and the deep state.
Donald Trump will cave under pressure from the deep state and renege on his pledge to cooperate with rather than threaten Russia…so said many pundits, but thus far they have been proved wrong time and again.
Donald Trump just tweeted the following:
They are said to be the founding fathers of Western philosophy, whose ideas underpin civilised society.
But students at a prestigious London university are demanding that figures such as Plato, Descartes and Immanuel Kant should be largely dropped from the curriculum because they are white.
The student union at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) insists that when studying philosophy “the majority of philosophers on our courses” should be from Africa and Asia.
It is worse than “voodoo economics,” says former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. It is the “economic equivalent of creationism.”
Wait a minute…
Larry Summers is wrong about almost everything. Could he be right about this?
Summers is referring to the paper written by two members of Trump’s trade team: his pick for secretary of commerce, billionaire investor Wilbur Ross, and the director of Trump’s new National Trade Council, Ph.D. economist Peter Navarro.
Even on a “quiet” news weekend – now that the PPT-orchestrated, soon-to-be-reversed “Trump-Flation” rally has put what remains of critical media analysis into hibernation – an utterly astounding amount of dramatically “PM bearish, everything-else-bullish” headlines emerged. To the point that, albeit early, it’s starting to feel a lot like a year ago.
No, the Fed’s minuscule, way-behind-the-curve interest rate hike didn’t catalyze a stock plunge like last January – as after the powers that be were taken by surprise by the “shocking” Trump victory, they raised their level of market “intervention” to all-time high levels. However, like last year, Precious Metals appear to have “coincidentally” bottomed in late December, as I considered two weeks ago; as evidenced by the “gold sentiment index” hitting a 29-year low, as demonstrated here.
U.S. President Barack Obama was given the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service “as a token of appreciation for his service as commander in chief” at a farewell ceremony on January 4. The medal is the highest honorary award at the Department of Defense and is presented by the Secretary of Defense. However, critics have said the award is similar to an employee giving his boss a “participation trophy” for supervising.
The award comes days before a new report revealed President Obama authorized the United States military to drop more than 26,000 bombs in 7 countries during the 2016 calendar year, according to an estimate by the Council on Foreign Relations. More than 24,000 of those bombs were dropped in Iraq and Syria as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, which is the U.S. led coalition against the Islamic State. The report itself says the actual number of bombs dropped is signficantly higher because does not release complete info about the number of munitions used for each mission.
Fed Governor Jerome Powell says “Signs of excesses are ‘isolated’. Asset Prices ‘not broadly unsustainable’“.
“The Federal Reserve does not see “broadly unsustainable asset prices,” a senior U.S. central banker said Saturday, with financial excesses stemming from almost a decade of ultralow interest rates “isolated.”
Believe nothing at face value from government at all levels and scoundrel media sources.
On all issues mattering most, especially geopolitical ones, they systematically lie – fake news substituting for truth-telling, information important to know suppressed.
Media scoundrels operate as virtual press agents for wealth, power and privileged interests – willfully deceiving readers and viewers to keep them uninformed on what’s going on, feeding them worthless rubbish, fiction, not facts.
