The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts

By Richard Baehr
The recount in Wisconsin, and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states. No recount ever changes thousands of votes. I do not think that is the purpose........

News on the War on Cash: Now Spain

India, Uruguay, Australia and now Spain. The Minister of Finance and Public Service, Cristóbal Montoro has reportedly just announced “anticipated measures in order to ‘reduce the use of cash.’

Submitted by Jeff Berwick:

In other words, Spain is going to make cash transactions even more difficult. As of presstime, from what we can tell, this has yet to be reported anywhere in English media except here now at TDV.

As you can see, the chaos is increasing. Combine cash bans with attacks on fake news (more on that tomorrow), and you end up disturbing a significant amount of people as we wrote here recently.

Israeli Airstrike Kills Four ISIS Fighters Along Syria Frontier

Interesting.

Israeli and ISIS forces exchanged gunfire today in the Golan Heights, leading to an Israeli military airstrike against what they described as an ISIS vehicle, killing four people within. This is the first time the two sides have exchanged fire during the course of ISIS’ expansion across the region.

The Washington Post: Useful-Idiot Shills For A Failed, Frantic Status Quo That Has Lost Control Of The Narrative

My "crime" is a simple one: challenging the ruling elite's narrative. Labeling all dissent "enemy propaganda" is of course the classic first phase of state-sponsored propaganda and the favorite tool of well-paid illiberal apologists for an illiberal regime.

Labeling everyone who dissents or questions the ruling elite's narrative as tools of an enemy power is classic McCarthy-era witch-hunting, i.e. a broad-brush way of marginalizing and silencing critics with an accusation that is easy to fabricate but difficult to prove.

Trump Appoints CFR Member and Former Kissinger Aide to Top Advisory Position

For all of Donald Trump’s words about going against the Washington establishment, his pick for deputy national security adviser makes much of that null and void. President-elect Trump has tapped K.T. McFarland for deputy national security adviser, who is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and former aide to Henry Kissinger during the Nixon administration. More recently, she has plied her trade as a talking head on Fox News, which regularly pushes the narrative of U.S. military hegemony and keeps Americans in a state of fear over terrorism.

Amid a media blackout of the Standing Rock protests, law enforcement targets the rare journalists on the scene

Unicorn Riot's reporters are among the most targeted by Morton County Sheriff's Deputies -- the same law enforcement officers whom Unicorn Riot have outed for the sadistic use of water-canons in subzero temperatures and of firing tear gas cannisters directly into the protesters' crowds, activities the deputies lied about when they denied doing either.

College Students Demand Police Investigate "Suck It Up, Pussies" Post-It Note As Hate Crime

Apparently the simple post-it note was determined to be a "hate crime" by the college's "diversity offices" and students with knowledge of the incident were encouraged to contact campus police. To our complete shock, a message from Edgewood's Vice President for Student Development pinned the blame for the "hate crime" on Trump, saying that it is part of a growing trend of "covert micro-aggressions and overt macro-aggressions" that have "taken on new fervor in higher education since our national election."

Regarding triggered snowflakes and those who value themselves based on their ability to be offended: Don't forget about all those people who's job it is to defend and pamper the snowflakes. Their jobs depend on these snowflakes being triggered!

Switzerland votes on nuclear power phase out process - If voters choose "yes" in Sunday's referendum, it would force three of the country's 5 reactors to close next yr & the remaining 2 by 2029.

People in Switzerland voting in a referendum have rejected a proposal to introduce a strict timetable for phasing out nuclear power.
A projection for SRF public television showed the initiative failing by 55% to 45%.
A majority of cantons (Swiss states) voted against the initiative.
The plan, backed by the Green Party, would have meant closing three of Switzerland's five nuclear plants next year, with the last shutting in 2029.

The Iran-Russia-China Strategic Triangle

21 November 2016
By F. William Engdahl

The developing economic, political and military links binding Iran, China and Russia in what I see as an emerging Golden Triangle in Eurasia, are continuing to deepen insignificant areas. This, while it seems to be US geopolitical strategy in a prospective Trump Administration to distance Washington from both Iran and from China, while dangling the carrot of lessened confrontation between Washington and Moscow–classic Halford Mackinder or Kissinger geopolitics of avoiding a two-front war that was colossally backfiring on Washington by trying to shift the power balance. At present, the dynamic of the past several years of closer cooperation by the three pivotal states of the Eurasian Heartland is gaining strategic momentum. The latest is the visit of China’s Minister of Defense and of Russian senior officials to Teheran

Trump Slams Green Party Recount "Scam", Accuses Stein Of "Filling Her Coffers With Money"

"The people have spoken and the election is over," Trump declared Saturday. He added, "We must accept this result and then look to the future."

"This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount."

"This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what (Green Party leader) Jill Stein is doing."

Jill Stein Advocate Slams Recount Decision: "Shameful Support For War Goddess Hillary"

Shameful! What’s going on? Why did her campaign announce its “intent to file for a recount of votes in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, leading a multi-partisan effort to check the accuracy of the machine-counted vote tallies in these states in order to ensure the integrity of our election?”

Did she forget Hillary criticizing Trump’s possible refusal to accept electoral results when asked, calling it “a direct threat to our democracy?”

Clintons Confirm Participation In Recount Plan, Despite No "Actionable Evidence Of Hacking"

This morning Hillary Clinton's campaign general counsel, Marc Elias, confirmed what we all knew already, namely that Jill Stein is likely acting at the direction of the Clintons in her recount efforts in WI, MI and PA. The discovery came after Elias posted a note to Hillary voters this morning on Medium confirming that they would participate in Stein's recount efforts even though the Clinton campaign itself had decided against a recount because they had "not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology." This approach seems to align perfectly with the strategy we laid out two days ago:

The Hidden Communist History of the Neo-Conservatives (“Neo Cons”)

Neo-conservatism fully began to rear its ugly head in the 1990’s when they thoroughly infiltrated the once patriotic and pro-America Republican party.

At the helm of this nightmarish and Frankenstein-like transformation of the USA into something more akin to the former USSR and/or NAZI Germany, is the “National Security State/Military Industrial Complex,” spearheaded by the Deep State Plutocrat/Oligarch Elite, using their most effective “useful idiot” agents, the Neo-Conservative (“Neo-Con”) movement.

Is 10-Year-Old Barron Trump Autistic?

This is a very well done and thoughtful video with compelling evidence that President Donald Trump's son may be autistic. Mr. Trump has repeatedly brought up the link between vaccines and autism, even noting in a presidential primary debate that "I've seen it myself," referring to the dramatic increase in autism and the damage vaccines can do to a beautiful new baby. This video in no way ridicules Barron or the Trump family. It has gotten nearly two million views in two weeks and is highly recommended.

He added: ‘What upsets me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: they can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged.’

Satanic PizzaGate Is Going Viral Worldwide (Elites Are Terrified)


David Seaman
Published on Nov 26, 2016 PizzaGate is going viral worldwide. Too late elites, you can't kill us ALL. You can't accuse us ALL of being pedos, when you're the ones with Instagram accounts filled with the worst possible filth, and emails filled with the worst possible sadism. Child rapists and killers get the electric chair. The Washington Post should be disbanded. The New York Times should be driven into bankruptcy. Very bad people.

I don't think this is going away anytime soon. If it is indeed a "poison the well/limited hangout" operation not only is it garnering a lot of attention but it appears to be back firing! Suffice it to say 'pizzagate' is radioactive hot!

A Closer Look at Facebook’s Fake-News Fixes

I found it interesting that when I went to read Zuckerberg’s post about misinformation, there were two ads on the side that are super fake.

Despite appearances, the first one doesn’t point to espn.com. It goes to espn.com-magazine.online and attempts to sell a muscle-building supplement using ESPN branding and a fake news story.

The CNN-branded ad goes to less work. It just takes you to a site called Fine the Racers with an exclusive offer for a 12-week program to strengthen your toes (?).

Asylum in Kiev for Islamic State Terrorists? “ISIS is Our Ally in the Struggle Against Russia”. Ukrainian Nationalist Leader

A Ukrainian nationalist, leader of the “Brotherhood,” Dmitry Korchinsky proposed to offer asylum to ISIS terrorists in Kiev, the former head of UNA-UNSO [Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People’s Self-defense] wrote on his social network page. According to Korchinsky, SSU (Security Service of Ukraine) must see ISIS as “allies in the struggle with Russia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Korchinsky, a word, please: just because ISIS members may be granted asylum in Ukraine is absolutely no guarantee that they, as individuals, will not treat Ukrainian women just the way they have treated European women, when they have been granted sanctuary in various European countries.

But even making this suggestion - in public - demonstrates that you consider war with Russia, including ISIS attacks against targets in Russian-held territories like Chechnya and Dagestan, as the only way forward for Ukraine when, in hard truth, it is not.

By offering asylum to ISIS members, as a "safe space" from which to attack Russia, these attacks may push Russia to extinguish ISIS, both in Ukraine, and the Middle East, to the point where not even one member of the organisation is left alive.

Financial support for it will be withdrawn from such countries as Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, as it will have outlived its usefulness.

Then, sir, what happens to Ukraine, a country which has provided a safe haven for ISIS jihadists?!?

Your military is in total disarray, and new conscripts are deserting like flies; corruption at every level of government abounds; and it is thoroughly unlikely that either NATO or the new Trump administration are going to be very enthusiastic about lending military support to your country, should Russia attack it in any way, either financially, or militarily.

My guess will be that the Russian response will be asymmetric in nature; they are rather accomplished at that.

This suggestion, sir, if accepted by the Ukrainian government, could lead to the absolute destruction of your country; I therefore strongly urge you to reconsider your stance here.

The Lie of the 21st Century: How Mainstream Media “Fake News” Led to the U.S. Invasion of Iraq

Just to be clear, there are a number of websites that do spread misinformation including those in the alternative media, but it is fair to say that they never have caused the deaths of millions of people like The New York Times when it comes to U.S. foreign policy. A recent example is the U.S. led war against Iraq in 2003. After the September 11th attacks, the George W. Bush administration made a false accusation that the Iraq government had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) which led to a U.S. invasion eventually toppling Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The U.S. led war turned out to be a calculated plan by The Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a neo-conservative think-tank who wrote the secretive blueprint called ‘Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century’ to remove Saddam Hussein and the Ba’ath party from power. The blueprint was originally written for the neocon lunatics who served under then-President George W.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the New York Times, aided and abetted by Judith Miller, became the Bush Administration's "Ministry of Propaganda" to "sell" the Iraq war to the American people on a package of lies and disinformation.

And they have the nerve, and effrontery, to label the entire independent media as purveyors of "fake news"?!?!

How bloody dare they, after laying the propaganda groundwork for a war in which over 4,000 Americans, and over half a million Iraqis have died, accuse the independent media of lying, and/or colluding with the Russians?!?

Folks, this is collective desperation on the cusp of madness; they cannot "sell" their poison anymore to a war-weary, and war-skeptical American public, so they are attempting to suppress those voices in the alternative media who ARE telling the truth, the best they can.

And I consider WRH to be in great company with those other sites listed in the WaPo article about alleged "fake news", because I know that the people who run them are people of moral integrity, and clarity.

And thank you, WaPo, for your bellicose, hubristic screed against the truth tellers; it means we are making a difference in the way people and getting their news, and responding to it, and that is the best possible news all of us could be receiving at this critical transition point for this country!!

Fatal Shootings Of Cops Up 67%, Deaths From Police Shootings Decline

The number of US law enforcement deaths attributable to firearms in 2016 (60) is already beyond last year’s total but is yet to top totals in 2007 and 2011. Meanwhile, 860 people have been fatally shot by police forces so far this year, after 991 in 2015.

With about five weeks remaining in 2016, gun violence has claimed the lives of 60 law enforcement officers in the US, up from 36 in all of 2015, according to data compiled by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Tuna’s Declining Mercury Contamination Linked to U.S. Shift Away from Coal

Levels of highly toxic mercury contamination in Atlantic bluefin tuna are rapidly declining, according to a new study. That trend does not affect recommended limits on consumption of canned tuna, which comes mainly from other tuna species. Nor does it reflect trends in other ocean basins. But it does represent a major break in the long-standing, scary connection between tuna and mercury, a source of public concern since 1970, when a chemistry professor in New York City found excess levels of mercury in a can of tuna and spurred a nationwide recall.

Pakistan warns India over rising tensions

Pakistan's air force chief has warned arch-rival India against escalating the dispute over Kashmir into full-scale war.

Marshal Sohail Aman's warning on Thursday comes as tensions soar between Islamabad and New Delhi over the contested Himalayan territory after a day of violent exchanges.

The Pakistani army said Indian fire killed 12 civilians and three soldiers on Wednesday - the deadliest incident in weeks of border clashes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that SOME responsible adults in the world of geopolitics are working the phones this weekend, and suggesting that both nuclear-armed countries cool their jets, and back away from confrontation.

The regional, and world, consequences from the devastation from such a conflict would create would be horrific...and irreversible.

WikiLeaks’ ‘Yemen Files’ Reveal Scope of US Involvement in Yemen War

WikiLeaks has released a new collection of 500 internal documents today from the US Embassy in Sanaa, the latest in a long series of leaks the group has obtained over the years. The documents detail US involvement in Yemen in the lead up to and during the Saudi invasion.

Dubbed the “Yemen Files,” it covers emails from 2009-2015, covering Secretary of States Hillary Clinton and John Kerry’s terms. The files include considerable details of US arming and training of Yemeni military forces in the build up to the Saudi invasion.

Of course, the US also backed Saudi Arabia in their invasion, leading WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to note that most of the bombs that have fallen on Yemen over the course of the war were American made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US militarily-enabled Saudi military has bombed schools, hospitals, and open air markets.

They have murdered children.Images of Yemeni children killed or maimed for life from Saudi air strikes
and many of those left standing are starving to death, courtesy of the Saudi naval blockade of Yemen.Images of dead and starving children, courtesy of Saudi military bombing and blockade

The US and UK, through their selling of bombs and missiles to Saudi Arabia for this assault on Yemen, coupled with the US military "providing guidance" for Saudi air strikes, makes the US, and the UK, complicit is Saudi war crimes against the people of Yemen.

This serial genocide of the Yemeni people began, 19 months ago, for them having had the temerity to overthrow their sitting President, Al-Hadi. And does anyone else remember how many names were actually on the ballot when al-Hadi was elected?!? Only one; his.

Yemen holds presidential election with one candidate

It was an experiment doomed to ultimate failure.

What the Trump administration needs to do, just as soon as it has practically assumed power, is to very publicly announce that it will no longer support this immoral and illegal war against the Yemeni people, but will only support an immediate cease-fire from all sides, and a peaceful dialogue between the Houthi rebels and the Al-Hadi loyalists so that they can work out a positive future for this country.

The Saudi blockade of Yemeni harbors needs to cease immediately, so that food, and medical aid can be brought in quickly, to prevent more famine, and resulting deaths.

I don't know how the rest of our readers feel about this, but I am not particularly happy about being a citizen of a country which enables and abets war crimes, and I am pretty sure that a good number of my English cousins in the UK feel precisely the same way about the UK government also being complicit in these war crimes in Yemen.

Uniquely Talented: Only the Democrats Could Have Lost to Trump

A great uproar goes forth from the enemies of the Trump Beast, with much gnashing of hair and pulling of teeth. He will be a terrible President, they say, and they may well be right. There are ominous signs, particularly as regards foreign policy, and he seems radically incoherent and contradictory. Interestingly, his critics have no slight idea why he won. The reason is obvious: He won because everybody was campaigning for him, in particular the media, Hillary, Black Lives Matter, Obama, Democrats, and far leftists. Everybody worked for Trump. He couldn’t lose.

Feds Plan To Shut Down Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Camp

The federal government on Friday revealed plans to shut the largest camp in North Dakota where protesters have gathered for months in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said in a letter to a Native American tribe leading the opposition against the pipeline that it will close the area on Dec. 5, after a series of clashes between law enforcement and protesters.

“This decision is necessary to protect the general public from the violent confrontations between protestors and law enforcement officials that have occurred in this area, and to prevent death, illness, or serious injury to inhabitants of encampments due to the harsh North Dakota winter conditions,” Col. John Henderson said in a letter to tribal chairman Dave Archambault. “The necessary emergency, medical, and fire response services, law enforcement, or sustainable facilities to protect people from these conditions on this property cannot be provided.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The date for this shut-down is one week from this Monday.

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that the Standing Souix, and the other people who have come to protest both encroachment on these ancient Indian lands, ceded to them by treaty, and the very real, potential environmental damage to water resources, will not back down, but force the Federal Government's hand here.

And I would politely like to point out to Col. John Henderson, that there is no such thing as a "free speech zone"; this is a false construct, created by the Federal Government, to absolutely suppress free speech, which is guaranteed to all Americans by the first Amendment to the Constitution in the Bill of Rights.

Such an alleged "free speech zone" falsely gives protesters the illusion that such a thing as free speech still exists in this country when it does not, particularly when gets in the way of corporate profits, as it is doing here.

WELLS FARGO SAYS THAT ITS CUSTOMERS GAVE UP RIGHT TO SUE BY HAVING THEIR SIGNATURES FORGED

Even though disgraced Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf has left the building, his most outrageous legal theories live on: on Wednesday, the company filed a motion in a federal court in Utah seeking dismissal of a class action suit by the customers it defrauded -- the bank argues that since customers sign a binding arbitration "agreement" when they open new accounts, that the customers whose signatures were forged on fraudulent new accounts should be subject to this agreement and denied a day in court.

This is the same argument that Stumpf made during his disastrous performance in front of a blazing Elizabeth Warren -- that Wells's poor customers should be subjected to agreements they never made, because Wells stole their identities and "agreed" on their behalf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT THE HELL?!?

WELLS FARGO CUSTOMERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BOUND BY AGREEMENTS THEY THEMSELVES NEVER SIGNED?!?

This is truly tortured logic on drugs, and I sincerely hope the judge in this case throws the Wells Fargo argument out on its ear!!

Belief in Santa could affect parent-child relationships, warns study

Parents, though, are being urged to re-consider the ethics of the great Santa Claus lie. In an article published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry, two psychologists have raised the spectre of children’s moral compass being permanently thrown off-kilter by what is normally considered a magical part of the Christmas tradition.

The darker reality, the authors suggest, is that lying to children, even about something fun and frivolous, could undermine their trust in their parents and leave them open to “abject disappointment” when they eventually discover that magic is not real.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What about when children discover that corporate media lies and politicians are dishonest? I think those are more important.

Australia ceases multimillion-dollar donations to controversial Clinton family charities

The federal government confirmed to news.com.au it has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million.

Exclusive: Jack Cashill shows jaw-dropping stats about elites' voting, donating

Whether we deserve it or not, we have been granted a stay of execution. Barack Obama had promised to fundamentally transform America. If Hillary Clinton had won the election, the deed would have been all but done.

We would have lost the Supreme Court for at least a generation. Political correctness would have been fully sanctioned, the military fully sissified and the economy put largely under the government’s thumb.

Happily, that has not happened. Why it did not happen will have political scientists scratching their heads for years to come. The stars seemed so perfectly aligned to elect Hillary Clinton.

The Mysterious Case Of Jill Stein's Surging Recount Costs

So, with nearly $5mm raised so far, the question is no longer whether recounts will occur in WI, MI and PA but just how much Jill Stein will be able to drain from the pockets of disaffected Hillary supporters to fund her long-shot efforts.

All that said, here is Jill Stein admitting to CNN that she has absolutely no evidence of election hacking....even though she asks that you please keep sending your money anyway.

CNN Accidentally Airs 30 Minutes Of Hard Core, Transsexual Porn

Child Labor' Attack on Trump Education Pick Is the Dumbest Thing You'll Read Today

President-elect Trump announced on Wednesday that billionaire Republican donor Betsy DeVos, a school choice activist, was his pick to head the Department of Education. The left immediately commenced a collective tantrum over the school choice issue—the New York Times shrieking in a headline that she has "steered money from public schools"—and promptly declared DeVos unfit for the position based on that single issue.

Alana Horowitz Satlin, the assignment editor at Huffington Post, is also concerned about that issue, but in a breathless essay on Thursday, she also informed readers of an even more egregious sin in DeVos's past—something so fearful that it would irrevocably endanger the children of America. Betsy DeVos, you see, supports child labor. That's right. It says so right there at the Huffington Post under the headline "Group Funded By Trump’s Education Secretary Pick: ‘Bring Back Child Labor'":

Crimes against Humanity: Ninety Percent of Gaza Has No Clean Drinking Water

Ninety percent of Gaza has no safe drinking water and by 2020, none of the water in the blockaded enclave will be usable if nothing is done, the World Bank said this week.

This was not always the case. As recently as the late 1990s, tap water in Gaza was safe to drink, World Bank Senior Water and Sanitation Specialist Adnan Ghosheh said in his statement on the World Bank website this week. But since then, so much water has been pumped from the natural aquifer underneath Gaza that seawater has seeped in, spoiling the water and making it too salty for drinking.

Gaza’s nearly 2 million residents, therefore, rely on about 150 water truck operators selling desalinated filtered drinking water. However, “It’s more expensive and not an improved source of water, according to our definitions of water clean enough to drink,” Ghosheh said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Access to clean water is a basic human right; withholding or denying it, is tantamount to a war crime, courtesy of the Israelis, against the Palestinians.

China: Xinjiang residents told to turn in passports

All residents in China's largely Muslim region of Xinjiang must hand in their passports to local police stations for "examination and management", according to Global Times, a state-funded newspaper .

"Anyone who needs the passport must apply to the police station," an anonymous police officer in Aksu prefecture told the paper on Thursday, adding that the policy had been implemented throughout Xinjiang.

The Global Times article followed numerous reports of tightened passport controls in cities across the region.

In June, local state-run media reported that the mostly Kazakh residents of a Xinjiang border district had to give police DNA samples, fingerprints, voiceprints and a "three-dimensional image" in order to apply for certain travel documents, including passports.

A Xinjiang official told the Global Times that the new tightening of policy was intended to maintain social order in the region.

Syrian Rebels Show Off New Anti-Aircraft Missiles

After months of the US assisting weapons smuggling to rebels in Syria but also trying to keep anti-aircraft missiles out of the country, the US-backed rebels in the south, including Ansar al-Islam forces have issued a video of their fighters parading around with anti-aircraft weapons.

The weapons shown in the video were 9k32 Strela-2 missiles, a Soviet design from the late 1960s which remains a popular shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missile across the world. It is unclear where the rebels got them, but they claimed to have a “good number” of them.

Saudi Arabia has been keen to get anti-aircraft missiles into the hands of rebels for years, but had so far been blocked by the US. It is possible they were finally able to do so, and while the Saudis aren’t themselves users of that particular design of missiles, they are common enough on the export market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if President Obama "greenlit" this in the closing days of his administration, to keep the war in Syria continuing against the Al-Assad government.

US Soldier Killed in North Syria IED

The small, if not always totally certain number of US ground troops in Syria has meant they’ve mostly remained off the front lines, embedded with the Kurdish YPG. The first death among US soldiers in the country was reported today near Kurdish-held Ayn Issa, north of Raqqa.

The soldier was wounded in an IED blast near Ayn Issa, and did not survive. Centcom confirmed the incident but did not offer any particular details on what the soldier was doing at the time. Kurdish forces are advancing southward from Ayn Issa toward Raqqa, however.

While the first US military death in Syria, it’s also the second death in as many months in anti-ISIS offensives, with another soldier killed near northern Iraq’s city of Mosul. In similar fashion, that soldier was killed in a roadside bomb while embedded with Kurdish troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell is the US government doing, sending ground troops into Syria?!?

It is a blatant violation of Syrian national sovereignty, not to mention that the duly elected Al-Assad government has not invited the US government for help to get rid of the jihadists, battling his regime.

And of course, the reality that the US government has trained and funded many of these jihadists (the "moderate" guys, right?!?) is not helping the situation.

I have to wonder if our troops are in Syria to assassinate the heads of those units the US supported and trained, in order to regime-change Damascus, before they can blab to the world about who they really work for?!?

Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say

The flood of “fake news” this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation.

Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers. The effort also sought to heighten the appearance of international tensions and promote fear of looming hostilities with nuclear-armed Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the "Hysterical Hillaristas" are pathologically incapable of understanding why Clinton lost the election, so in a last gasp of desperation, have decided to blame Russia, rather than take any responsibility for her criminal history; her temperament; her corruption; her smug sense of entitlement; her having stolen the nomination from Bernie Sanders, by any means necessary; and an absolute void of meaningful policies introduced, coupled with a lack of a good ground game, particularly in the swing states, with which her campaign was run.

Both the government and the presstitute media have lost the trust of the people of this country, by lying consistently, and saying one thing, but doing another; Russia has had nothing to do with that, thank you very much.

Fake news has been very much the "stock in trade" for the presstitute media for some time, and people have grown tired of it. Remember those headlines about Saddam Hussein allegedly having "weapons of mass destruction" and Syria's al-Assad allegedly gassing his own people?!?

These were all proven to be lies, fabricated for the purpose of "selling" the American public more wars and more taxes to support those wars.

That is why people interested in what is really happening in this world are flocking to the independent media, because they understand that they have a better chance of getting the straight story at sites like WRH than they ever would at the New York Times, which appears to have fallen into the gutter of blame-game, pseudo-journalism, from which, apparently, it cannot extricate itself.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "All wars are economic", he was absolutely correct. Wars are not about glory, and honor, and "preserving the American way of life", whatever that may be. Wars are about obtaining and exploiting resources in other countries, to which the US government has no moral right, then making sure they are controlled by American-approved corporations, and sold in US dollars; ultimately, it is just that simple.

And the reality here is that those Congressional representatives who "comfort" bereaved families when a family's loved one has been killed or maimed for life in one of the US government's "military misadventures", can't say to the grieving family, "I'm sorry you lost your loved one, but hey; the US government now controls Iraq's oil, and the oil is sold only in US dollars; isn't that great?!?"

The outrage such a statement would generate, multiplied by every US military member dead or maimed, when the reality of why their loved ones died or got maimed for life sunk in, would cause an exponential outpouring of fury against this government, when enough families realize that they lost the person they loved ...ultimately for corporate profit.

So, if the American government and corporate press want to regain the trust of the American people, just start taking responsibility for your actions, and stop lying to the American people; it is just that simple.

The Post's attempt to blame Russia for Clinton's failure to win the presidency is an after-the-fact verbal tantrum for not having gotten its way, and appears both churlish, and childish.

And my polite suggestion to the Post would be: if you ever wish to be relevant to Americans again, grow up, get over it, and try telling the truth. You may be pleasantly surprised by an uptick in readership if you do so.

Kellogg ‘Breakfast Council’ was made up of paid experts

On its website, Kellogg touted a distinguished-sounding “Breakfast Council” of “independent experts” who helped guide its nutritional efforts.

Nowhere did it say this: The maker of Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes paid the experts and fed them talking points, according to a copy of a contract and emails obtained by The Associated Press.

The company paid the experts an average of $13,000 a year, prohibited them from offering media services for products “competitive or negative to cereal” and required them to engage in “nutrition influencer outreach” on social media or with colleagues, and report back on their efforts.

For Kellogg, the breakfast council — in existence between 2011 and this year — deftly blurred the lines between cereal promotion and impartial nutrition guidance. The company used the council to teach a continuing education class for dietitians, publish an academic paper on breakfast and try to influence the U.S. government’s dietary guidelines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The other thing that Kellogg's Breakfast Council is not telling is the following:

Bahrain’s Rajab hospitalized due to heart condition

Prominent Bahraini human rights campaigner Nabeel Rajab has been taken to hospital from prison due to heart problems after being held in solitary confinement for three months.

In a post on his Twitter account, his son, Adam, said that his father was transferred for the third time to a police hospital after suffering from chest pain.

The 52-year-old president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights has been repeatedly detained for organizing pro-democracy demonstrations and publishing Twitter posts deemed “insulting” to the Bahraini authorities.

He was pardoned for health reasons last year, but was re-arrested on June 13 following an intensive search of his house in the northwest of the country. Reports suggest he has been subjected to harassment in jail.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held numerous demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the kingdom on February 14, 2011.

Potential Trump Education Chief Pick Betsy DeVos is Pro-Common Core, Family Donated to Clinton Foundation

Trump is going down fast!

Citing many of the reported potential candidates’ associations with ardent Common Core supporter Jeb Bush, Tuttle and Robbins note:

DeVos has served on [Jeb Bush’s] foundation’s board of directors. Among these “experts” from Jebworld are alumni of Bush’s Chiefs for Change (Gerard Robinson and Tony Bennett) and former members of Bush’s gubernatorial education team (Hanna Skandera). All of these candidates predictably support progressive education in general and Common Core in particular. Indeed, Bennett was booted out of his position as Indiana State School Superintendent for that very reason. Why would Trump even consider someone coming out of the environment on which he heaped such scorn during the campaign?

West Michigan Politics reported that, like Donald Trump himself, the DeVos family has donated to the Clinton Foundation:

According to a WMP analysis of Clinton Foundation records, the DeVos family donated between $60,000-$130,000.

Obama Administration Pressures European Leaders to Accuse Moscow of “Russian Aggression” against the EU

Sanctions were imposed and renewed. EU leaders and European parliamentarians said they’ll remain in place as long as (nonexistent) “Russian aggression” continues, and the overwhelming will of Crimeans to rejoin the Russian Federation is reversed.

The European Parliament, Council of the European Union and European Commission share EU legislative functions separate from individual member states’ right of initiative power to propose and enact new laws for their respective countries.

In October, the European Parliament’s foreign affairs committee endorsed a document titled “EU Strategic Communication to Counteract Propaganda Against It by Third Parties.”

Without supporting evidence, it accused Moscow of spreading “disinformation and propaganda seeking to maintain or increase (its) influence to weaken and split the EU.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the European Parliament goes along with this move, it will have signalled to the rest of the world that it has, collectively, lost its reality license.

I read, and frequently link to, the English language versions of rt.com; sputinknews; and tass, because many times, one gets a sense of what the US government is up to that is not reported in the major US presstitute outlets, or reported far later than things actually happen.

Reading the foreign press in English is something I encourage everyone out there to do, including: presstv.com (an Iranian news outlet in English); english.farsnews.com (another Iranian outlet in English); and globalresearch.ca (a news outlet out of Canada).

The electors are set to vote for president and vice president on December 19. According to early November's election results, Trump secured the necessary 270 electoral votes and is expected to get the backing of 290 Republican electors. Hillary Clinton is expected to receive 228.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This effort is quixotic in the extreme, because of the number of electors whou would have to be "turned"/threatened/bribed to change their vote, but at the end of the day, it is about attempting to delegitimize Trump and his election, before he even takes the Oath of Office, and deep-six the Electoral college.

End the war in Yemen, Mr. Trump

If Trump does want to bring some positive change to U.S. foreign policy, he should seek to end the war in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia announced on Monday that it would not extend a 48-hour cease-fire in its war there. The war doesn't make many headlines in the United States, even though the U.S. is directly involved in helping the Saudi military fire at targets in Yemen and blockade that country.

The humanitarian effect of the war has been disastrous. Over three million Yemeni people have been displaced from their homes. Another 14 million are threatened with what the U.N. calls "food insecurity," because blockading efforts and the war itself have a devastating effect on the import-dependent food supply of the nation.

But the United States does not have to continue exacerbating the situation. It's an immoral and unjust war on a population that does not threaten the United States.

Trump loses half his transition team in purge of lobbyists

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington ...
The Trump transition team has lost nearly half its staff and volunteers in a matter of days since instituting a ban on registered lobbyists at the end of last week, the Daily Mail has learned.

‘All the lobbyists are gone,’ said one source familiar with the transition. ‘Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could count [them] maybe on one hand.’

The source estimated that the number of staffers and volunteers working on the transition plummeted from around 250 late last week to less than 125 on Tuesday.

Committee Announces 500 New Settlement Units in East Jerusalem

The first such announcement since the US presidential election, the planning committee in Jerusalem has announced plans to construct another 500 new settlement units in occupied East Jerusalem. The units are to be built in the northern settlement of Ramat Shlomo.

Members of Israel’s far-right government have suggested that Donald Trump’s election in the US could allow massive increases in settlement construction, on the grounds that Trump has promised to be the most pro-Israel president ever.

Palestinian MP Mustafa Barghouti warned the latest expansion in East Jerusalem is a “very dangerous step,” and urged President-elect Trump to warn Israel away from such moves in the future. So far there has been no new comment from either Trump or Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice the timing of the announcement; right on Thanksgiving Eve, whemn the Isralie government thought Americans would not be paying attention.

But we at WRH are, thank you very much!!

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

Maybe the internet will not succumb to the latest Western crusade against “fake news”.
You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice.

And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook
The Mainstream Media (“MSM”), fully owned and co-opted by the Deep State Plutocrat/ Oligarch Elite, are extremely unhappy that Donald Trump won the 2016 Election.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

‘We are at war with Russia’: EU Parliament resolution to counter Russian media

The resolution is a sign of the “political degradation” of the western “idea of democracy” - Putin

For decades the EU has been lecturing Russia and touting freedom of speech as one of its core principles, but hypocritically dismissed it as an unnecessary luxury once their narrative was challenged, RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said.

“We of course are extremely disappointed, this is really outrageous,” Simonyan said on the subject of the EU’s so-called anti-Russia propaganda resolution.
