Fewer than one third of Americans agree that Russia is responsible for US election hacks

Twenty-nine percent of respondents agreed with the statement, “We know with near certainty that Russia is responsible for hacking and cyber-attacks that impacted the US election.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is a really bad number, especially considering Politico's liberal bias.

What it signals is the Corporate Media tried another lie and lost even more credibility for it.

Oi! Linux users! Want some really insecure closed-source software?

Back in August Adobe reversed its decision to stop offering an NPAPI Flash plugin for Linux and promised that version 23 would come Penguinistas' way real soon now.

At the time the decision was greeted with surprise, because Adobe had not thought to update Flash for Linux since 2012's version 11.2. But the company decided that Linux users deserved a security upgrade to the infamously hole-ridden product.

It turns out the company fibbed, because it's now delivered version 24 of the plugin to Linux users, making this a thirteen-version jump between releases*.

That's the same version number offered to Windows and Mac users, but the new Linux version lacks features found on those other platforms. Linux users willing to put up with almost-certainly-insecure** will therefore have to put up with missing 3D acceleration from GPUs.

Russia-Hack Story, Another Media Failure

President Obama admitted in his press conference on Friday that his government hasn’t released any evidence yet of Russian interference in the election, but he said some would be coming.

That’s proof that an uncritical press has already printed stories as if true without any evidence just on the say-so of the Central Intelligence Agency, an organization long dedicated to deception, disinformation and meddling in other countries’ elections, not to mention arranging coups to overthrow elected governments.

TurkStream agreement approved by Russia

In a press release issued on the cabinet's website, Russia announced that it has approved a draft legislation that will allow Russia to ratify its agreement with Turkey on the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project.

The news release, which was released by the official website of the Russian government, stated: "the government decided at a meeting on Thursday to approve the draft federal law on ratification of the agreement between Russia and Turkey on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project and to send the document to the State Duma [the lower house of Russia's parliament]."

Russia’s TurkStream ratification follows Turkey’s ratification of a bill for the same project on 2 December, which was signed into law by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

According to the Daily Sabah, Turkish and Russian officials signed an intergovernmental agreement in October. Parliament and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later approved the agreement in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to make the US government very angry, and for the following reasons:

Gazprom will be in control of this project, meaning that the natural gas flowing through the pipeline will be sold in rubles, and not in dollars; the route of the pipeline completely bypasses Ukraine, which will mean that there will be no revenue for it whatsoever; and the pipeline will be another source of gas for Southern Europe.

The rival pipeline, known as the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (or TAP, for short) is supposed to pipe in oil from Azerbaijan to the coast of Italy. However, this project is in trouble, due to the outcome of Italy's referendum. as reported at oilprice.com yesterday:

The TAP Consortium has awarded Italian companies a contract for engineering and construction work for the onshore/offshore sections of the pipeline in Italy and for the pipeline-receiving terminal to connect TAP to the Italian Snam-Rete-Gas’s pipeline network. The construction of the pipeline in Greece and Albania had been already launched (EDM, June 16). The process was going smoothly, until TAP faced strong defiance from the local authorities of Italy’s Puglia region on the basis of environmental concerns. The opposition to the project came despite the fact that the Italian minister of environment had already signed the necessary decree of environmental compatibility of the project—following an extensive environmental impact study—and Italy’s ministry of economy had granted the single authorisation permit for the pipeline in 2015 (Tap-ag.com). However, under Italy’s constitution, the regional governments have a veto power over land use and prospective energy infrastructure. The national government under Matteo Renzi has strongly supported TAP. However, Michele Emiliano, the governor of Puglia, voiced opposition to the planned pipeline path along Melendugno, by accusing the government of implementing the project without the region’s consent. Emiliano demanded moving the construction to Puglia’s port city of Brindisi, where there is an available connection to the Snam’s national gas grid.

Donald Trump vows to ‘pick up Hotline’ on VA reform

The incoming president is “not inclined” to keep the department’s current secretary Bob McDonald in his administration. Instead, Trump is considering several potential successors who would align more with the sweeping VA overhaul Trump championed on the campaign trail as he railed against what he called the “most corrupt” and “most incompetently run agency in the United States.”

Jason Miller, communications director for the transition team, insisted that the delay is a result of an extra attention on the position, not disinterest.“This is an area that he cares deeply about, reforming VA and making sure the person who comes in has the appropriate skill set to address the many challenges,” said transition team spokesman Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee. “This is an area near and dear to his heart.”

Italian government to request bank bailout funds from parliament

The Italian government is laying the groundwork for a potential €20bn rescue of the country’s most troubled banks, including Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS).

A government statement issued late on Monday night said that the prime minister, Paolo Gentiloni, had convened a cabinet meeting to request the funds from parliament.

The statement said: “[It] could be necessary to adopt measures with the aim of protecting savers if there were risks in the financial sector”. The vote in parliament could happen as soon as Wednesday, according to the Italian news agency Ansa.

The news signals that a multi-billion euro refinancing of MPS could occur within days. Seven other banks that are struggling under the weight of bad loans amounting to billions of euros may also require government recapitalisation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the Italian government is , ultimately, looking at doing a taxpayer bailout of several banks, including Monte dei Paschi di Siena.

And the hideous injustice here, just as has happened with their American counterparts, is that the executives of these financial institutions will walk away from this mess, scott free, with no repercussions whatsoever, for having created - and maintained- a wretchedly flawed, and failed financial system which, ultimately, was doomed to take down the taxpayers of that country.

Hillary Clinton Gets More Faithless Electors Than Trump

Whether it’s Donald Trump crushing the entire Republican establishment and bringing it to heel, destroying the Clinton political machine and ending Hillary’s ridiculous failure of a career, utterly embarrassing the entire liberal media complex, already bringing jobs back to America, and now defeating the insane “Russia hacking” conspiracy theory, I can’t remember the last time the average Joe won so much in a political sense.

This latest victory is the cherry on top of a well-deserved sundae for Americans who have been forgotten and abused by the political system: Hillary Clinton ended up with more faithless electors than Donald Trump.

Turkish Pro-Government Media Blames US, CIA For Assassination Of Russian Ambassador

Following yesterday's Ankara tragedy in which a 22-year-old Turkish off-duty police officers assassinated the Russian ambassador, Turkey found itself in a scapegoat vacuum, having nobody to blame: after all, following this summer's failed "coup", Erdogan allegedly purged all forces who were hostile to his administration, which would suggest the police officer was one of "Erdogan's people." That however quickly changed when this morning Turkey's pro-government media outlets and journalists promptly cast the blame for the cold-blooded murder on the US, and the faith-based Gulen movement whose cleric Fetullah Gulen has been granted refuge in rural Pennsylvania, for the murder of the Russian ambassador to Turkey by a police officer on Monday evening.

PRESIDENT OBAMA and THE PUNISHMENT

President Obama’s latest analysis of what went wrong - as to date all the other analyses from the Democrats have been debunked, Russian hacks and all - is that Hillary failed to campaign in swing states, leaving them easy pickings for Donald Trump to pick these states up. Seriously speaking, in spite of that every source on this planet said Donald would lose Big Time?

The Obama Coalition was in Clinton’s pockets;

The Clinton Machine was in Clinton’s pockets;

The Media, Hollywood and academe was in Clinton’s pockets;

The Demographics, Minorities and Hispanics, Gays and Women and millenials were in Clinton’s pockets,

Five times and more money from Big Business, Wall Street and the Arab world were in Clinton’s pockets; as well as millions of illegals voting in California which explains her “popular vote win.”

Lastly, and most importantly,
Barry Soetoro, THE ONE, and his Justice Dept, FBI and CIA were in Clinton’s pockets.

6 YEARS AGO TODAY Cops Admitted Wrongdoing To Me In Writing: Both TX Troopers Were Punished & Retrained On 4th Amendment

Six years ago, two Texas Troopers threatened to arrest me and impound my vehicle if I did not show them my ID, even though they had no legal basis to ask for it. When I asked him why, he replied "I have the badge and the gun." That same week, I flied state and federal civil rights complaints, and to my shock, the cop's employer actually admitted wrongdoing, in writing no less! The admission letter, dated December 20, 2010, stated that "corrective action was needed" against both officers and that "additional training has been taken." Even better, the agency was then forced to admit in federal court that "The passenger is under no obligation to comply with request" for ID. I actually recorded both these idiots with my cellphone at the very moment they illegally demanded my ID. They were very dumb. :-)

BEX ALERT - NY TIMES - Will Trump Play Spy vs. Spy?

In recent days, President-elect Donald J. Trump has rejected the C.I.A.’s conclusions that Russian hackers attempted to sway the American elections, and has accused unnamed officials within the agency of trying to undermine him. And he has rejected the tradition of receiving the intelligence community’s daily briefing, implying that he would rather rely on information and analysis from his inner circle of advisers.

It’s a disturbing set of developments, if only because we’ve been here before. Presidents face a great temptation to go “in-house” for intelligence that fits with their plans; some have even set up formal or informal operations to circumvent the C.I.A. and other agencies. In almost every case, the result has been a disaster — for the president and for the country.

Protests grow in Poland as political crisis deepens

A bitter political crisis in Poland worsened over the weekend with heated protests both in and outside the nation's parliament and a swirl of allegations of attempted coups and threats to democracy.

In Poland's lower house of parliament, opposition lawmakers formed a phalanx around the podium, effectively halting proceedings in the chamber in protest over an alleged government attack on press freedoms.

Outside, in freezing temperatures, angry anti-government demonstrators besieged the parliament, preventing politicians from the ruling Law and Justice party from leaving, before police dragged them off the roads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is starting to feel like another covert regime change by the US. Poland's new government is right-wing, opposed by a left wing faction just as corrupt and eager to sell off the nation to corporations as we have here in the US. With Trump headed for the White House with his pledge to end covert regime changes, someone may be trying to get things done in the month that remains until Obama leaves office.

Note also that Hillary says that Putin interfered against her because he has a grudge against her for her interference in his reelection by fomenting protests against him with the Western-financed Russian NGOs. If what Hillary claims is correct, then any Russian interference, for which proof remains absent, was directed against Hillary in order to settle a score and has nothing to do with any Russian influence over Trump or 200 Internet sites as falsely and maliciously reported by the Washington Post.

Trump wins Electoral College vote; a few electors break ranks

In the end, however, more Democrats than Republicans went rogue, underscoring deep divisions within their party. At least four Democratic electors voted for someone other than Clinton, while two Republicans turned their backs on Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It wasn't " deep divisions within their party" that caused Democrat Electors to decide not to vote for Clinton. In a way, those "Vote Your Conscience" signs backfired, because Democratic Electors didn't want to be seen as accessories after-the-fact to the Clinton crimes.

Lawsuit Seeks to Find Evidence Trump Influenced Comey in Email Investigation

He further explained the purpose behind the lawsuit as follows:

“I think we need to see what ‘probable cause’ was shown for obtaining the search warrant, because whoever thought there was going to be evidence of a crime was obviously mistaken. And that mistake probably changed the outcome of the election.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Desperation on the cusp of madness!

The probable cause for the FBI warrant was information sent to them by the NYPD, which seized the laptop in an investigation of Anthony Weiner's continued practice of sexual communications with underage girls.

This lawsuit is a pathetic attempt to discredit the FBI investigation (and Trump), but we should always remember that if Hillary had been playing by the rules, there would not have been an FBI investigation in the first place!

252 Ways President Obama Has Systematically Destroyed America

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

Prelude to War? Ambassador Assassinated Monday; Terrorist Strikes Germany! (Video)

The Russian ambassador to Turkey was last night shot dead by an off-duty Turkish police officer at an art gallery in Ankara in 'revenge' for the conflict in Syria.

Ambassador Andrei Karlov, 62, was shot several times from behind by a gunman shouting: 'Allahu Akbar (God is Great). We die in Aleppo, you die here!' He also screamed: 'Only death will take me out of here.'

The shooter, who was wearing a suit and tie, has been identified as Mevlüt Mert Altintas, 22, a member of Ankara's police riot squad. He reportedly fired into the air before taking aim at the ambassador.

He then turned weapon on others in the gallery - injuring three - before he was shot dead in a 15-minute stand-off with police. There has been some suggestion that Altintas was linked to Turkey's failed coup in July.
