Hate Crime, Kidnapping Charges Filed Against Four Blacks In Facebook Live Torture Case

Update: Police have charged the four suspects with battery and hate crimes (though we note no specific allegation of race-related hate) after the kidnap and abuse of a mentally-ill white teen. Despite the suspects shouting "f*** Donald Trump" and "f*** white people" Chicago police said today that they do not believe the attack was motivated by race, more likely due to his "special needs."

Chicago: A Living & Dying Monument to Gun Control Failure

by Michael Ware, Freedom OutPost:
If we were to believe the anti-gun lobby, we would expect to see several cities in our country decline in gun violence. According to these lobbies, we have gun violence because we have guns. The ready and legal access to guns allow criminals to obtain and use guns against the innocent.
So, restricting legal access to guns should have the opposite effect. This is only logical. If more gun restrictions cause increased gun-violence, then fewer restrictions should decrease the same. But Chicago shows us that this theory does not stand-up to reality.

GOP Plans 'Pre-Emptive' Law Crackdown On Liberal City Agendas

"What we see is circumventing the process that’s in place.  I think we will likely look at language on preemption so that the state is making decisions where it ought to, and cities and counties are making decisions where they should."

Very Powerful People In The U.S. Government Want War – This Is Their Sales Pitch

Right at this very moment, we are being sold on this war by the media, politicians, intelligence agencies, as well as various other vested interests who benefit from imperial dominance abroad (unlike the vast majority of us who are severely harmed by it). When you understand that this is simply a huge sales pitch to herd the American public like sheep into a conflict that is not in their best interests, then everything you see and hear around you starts to make sense.

Looting, Riots In Mexico Spiral Out Of Control Over 20% Gas Hike; Hundreds Arrested

3 Things: Policy Hopes, Consumer-Spending Puppies, & Tax-Cut Rainbows

"Will “Trumponomics” change the course of the U.S. economy? We certainly hope so as any improvement that filters down to the bottom 80% of the country will be beneficial. However, as investors, we must understand the difference between a “narrative-driven” advance and one driven by strengthening fundamentals. The first is short-term and leads to bad outcomes. The other isn’t, and doesn’t. "

America's Supposed "Enemies" Are Literally Disappearing...But They Won't Likely Gently Fade Away

China, Russia, and Iran seem to be the most frequently mentioned state level "enemies" of America (not my view but that of the federal government).

Time Warner Slides On Report Trump Still Opposes AT&T Merger

Remember JFK? Trump Is Working On A Plan To Restructure, Pare Back The CIA And America’s Top Spy Agency

from ZeroHedge:
Just in case the accusations that president-elect Donald Trump is a puppet of the Kremlin, intent on destabilizing and weakening the US weren’t loud enough, moments ago the WSJ assured these would hit an unprecedented level with a report that Trump, a harsh critic of U.S. intelligence agencies, is working with top advisers on a plan that would restructure and pare back the nation’s top spy agency, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, prompted by a belief that it has “become bloated and politicized.”
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, or ODNI, was established in 2004 in large part to boost coordination between intelligence agencies following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
The planning comes in a time of turbulence between Trump and American intelligence agencies: the president-elect has leveled a series of social media attacks in recent months and the past few days against the U.S. intelligence apparatus, at times dismissing and mocking their assessment – perhaps with cause, after all there is still no evidence – that the Russian government hacked emails of Democratic groups and John Podesta and then leaked them to WikiLeaks and others in an effort to help Trump win the White House.

from The Daily Sheeple:
Remember the Oregon ‘Rain Man’ or Gary Harrington — who was sent to 30 days in Jackson County Jail and slapped with a $1,500 fine for collecting rainwater on his 170-acre property? He was ordered to breach his dams and drain his ponds that held more than 13 million gallons of water, enough to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Now, an Oregon couple faces a similar fate as Gary Harrington because the rain belongs to the overbearing government, because corporate greed claims water is not a human right, and because Americans are not entitled to do what they please on their private property.

Donald Trump Has an Enormous and Very Dangerous Wall Street Blind Spot

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
The biggest disappointment regarding Donald Trump since being elected President has been his total embrace of dangerous Wall Street thieves. As it is currently structured and incentivized, the financial services industry represents one of the most destructive and least beneficial forces within the U.S. economy. It is essentially a parasitic industry.
Unfortunately, Trump didn’t merely pick one or two competent finance guys to be in charge of finance-related jobs. Rather, he decided to surround himself with some of the worst of the worst (see links at the end) within an industry that often operates like a criminal syndicate. Treasury Secretary pick Steven Mnuchin is one of these people, and I believe this choice represents the single biggest mistake Trump has made as President-elect.

Amid False Fears Stoked by Fake News, Obama Quietly Deployed Special Forces Along Russian Border

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:
Lithuania — Time after time, the Washington Post continues to churn out fake stories intimating Russia acted aggressively against the United States, but the articles — from branding over 200 independent media organizations as Russian propagandists, to asserting Russian hackers penetrated Vermont’s power grid — contained zero evidence to back the assertions.
Russian operation hacked a Vermont utility, showing risk to U.S. electrical grid security, officials say,” the Post declared in the headline of its article, since fully retracted — after wrongly warping public perception — for being Fake News.
Parroted relentlessly by additional corporate outlets, the Post’s viral articles fed equally vapid claims from the Obama administration that Russia somehow poses an imminent threat — both to the U.S. and NATO allies along the Russian border.

Staying Off Grid When “Nearly Everything Is Chipped, Almost Everything Is Tracked”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
If you weren’t paranoid before, it may be time to start paying attention.
“They” are spying on everything you do, and are collecting information about every purchase, appliance, vehicle or place you make, do or interact with. For the first time in history, we have arrived at a time when nearly everything is chipped, and almost everything is tracked.
It really is true, and it’s no longer a conspiracy theory.
They are spying on everyone, collecting all the available data and tracking you, your family and everyone you know. All the time.
And worst of all, it does matter, it will be used against you – for revenue collection, social control, fines, fees and evidence if necessary – even if you haven’t done anything wrong. Is it any wonder why many states have made living off the grid illegal, and have attempted to get everyone on the grid?
