Malaysian protesters march against Prime Minister Najib

Tens of thousands of protesters, undeterred by the arrests of opposition leaders, marched in Malaysia's capital on Saturday demanding that Prime Minister Najib Razak step down.

Protesters clad in yellow shirts marched through the heart of Kuala Lumpur bringing traffic to a standstill in several tourist spots, wrapping up peacefully in front of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers after an initial plan to assemble at Independence Square was thwarted by police.

Najib has faced criticism since the Wall Street Journal reported last year that around $700 million from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was diverted into the personal bank account of the prime minister.

Najib ran into further trouble when lawsuits filed by the U.S. Justice Department in July said over $3.5 billion was stolen from 1MDB, which was founded by Najib, and that some of those funds flowed into the accounts of "Malaysian Official 1", whom U.S. and Malaysian officials have identified as Najib.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks to me as though Najib's government itself is the extremist and corrupt element here.

TURKISH CLIENT PAID TRUMP ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN’S COMPANY “TENS OF THOUSANDS” OF DOLLARS FOR LOBBYING

DONALD TRUMP HAS repeatedly promised to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption. The new ethics pledge he announced Wednesday would prohibit registered lobbyists from working for his transition team or administration.

But Trump’s supposed aversion to lobbyists has not harmed the fortunes of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, one of Trump’s earliest and most visible supporters, now a vice chair of the transition team and a rumored frontrunner for the influential post of national security adviser.

On election day, Flynn published an opinion piece for The Hill urging U.S. support for Turkey’s controversial strongman president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and pushing for the extradition of Erdogan’s political rival, Fethullah Gülen, who now resides in Pennsylvania.

Obama Refuses to Pardon Edward Snowden. Trump’s New CIA Pick Wants Him Dead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA INDICATED on Friday that he won’t pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, even as President-elect Donald Trump announced his pick to run the CIA: Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, who has called for “the traitor Edward Snowden” to be executed.

In a 2014 letter, Pompeo accused Snowden of “intentional distortion of truth that he and his media enablers have engaged in.” Pompeo supports virtually no legal barriers to having the NSA spy on Americans, and has alarmed civil liberties advocates with many of the positions he has taken while serving on the House Intelligence Committee. Not only has he argued that the NSA should resume its phone records program, he has called on Congress to “pass a law re-establishing collection of all metadata, and combining it with publicly available financial and lifestyle information into a comprehensive, searchable database.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, as Pompeo asserts that what CIA torturers do to their victims to obtain confessions is absolutely not torture, I would politely invite him to have it done publicly to his most immediate family while he is observing these actions, and then make the determination as to whether or not it is torture.

The West Is Finally Fighting Back against Militant Islam

General Michael Flynn has been offered the post of national security adviser in Donald Trump’s administration. Flynn is a senior intelligence officer and during the election campaign he was vociferous in his denunciation of Hillary Clinton, even leading the chants for her to be locked up.

He is also a long-standing critic of Obama’s military policies – or what he regards as the lack of them. In particular he has called for a fiercer response to Islamic State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You mean the Islamic state that was covertly being funded and armed by Obama and Hillary? THAT Islamic State?

The U.S. Remains Deeply Complicit in the War on Yemen

The atrocious U.S.-backed war on Yemen hasn’t ended. The New York Times reports on the use of U.S. weapons sold to the Saudi-led coalition to attack critical infrastructure and purely civilian targets:

But instead of defeating the rebels, the campaign has sunk into a grinding stalemate, systematically obliterating Yemen’s already bare-bones economy. The coalition has destroyed a wide variety of civilian targets that critics say have no clear link to the rebels.

It has hit hospitals and schools. It has destroyed bridges, power stations, poultry farms, a key seaport and factories that produce yogurt, tea, tissues, ceramics, Coca-Cola and potato chips. It has bombed weddings and a funeral.

The bombing campaign has exacerbated a humanitarian crisis in the Arab world’s poorest country, where cholera is spreading, millions of people are struggling to get enough food, and malnourished babies are overwhelming hospitals, according to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here, folks, is what your US government has enabled, and endorses in Yemen: massive starvation of Yemeni kids:

Horrifying images of starving children reveal the ongoing toll of Yemen’s forgotten war

No, folks, these images have not been photoshopped; this is the outcome President Obama, a father himself, thinks is a perfectly fine outcome for Yemeni children, death by starvation.

Are you angry yet?!? If not, you should be; enough to call your senators and congressional representatives-elect, and tell them, STOP THIS GENOCIDE!!

Gold Star family exiting plane to meet soldier's remains is booed by first class passengers

Perry, an ex-Marine who lives in Stockton, said the flight to Phoenix was 45 minutes late and the crew, fearing the Gold Star family could miss their connecting flight, made an announcement for passengers to remain seated to let a "special military family" deplane first.

Perry said several passengers in first class booed, complaining that it was "baloney" and that they paid first-class fares. He said he doesn't know if the passengers from Sacramento knew there was a Gold Star family on board or whether people sitting in the coach section complained.

"It was just disgusting behavior from people in first class; it was terrible to see," Perry said.

Perry, 30, and another American soldier died of injuries inflicted by an improvised explosive device Nov. 12 inside Bagram Airfield.

The husband and father of two young children died a hero, his father said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is truly a window on the mind set of the money junkies, traveling first-class.
They don't want to understand that all wars are economic, and it is our military who ultimately pay the price. All of you who read this blog know that I abhor war as a way for the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences.

But when our soldiers die, in this country's wars, and loved ones are attempting to collect what is left of them, dammit, be respectful!! That the first class passengers' response to a small delay was to boo the grieving family is so completely declasse', childish, and out of touch, one hardly knows where to begin.

But then again, that's the money junkies for you!!

Mom Sues Transgender Teen, Clinic For Undergoing Medical Procedures Without Consent

Anmarie Calgaro is suing her 17-year-old daughter for pursuing gender reassignment treatment without permission. Calgaro is also suing St. Louis County, its school district and the girl’s healthcare providers over the procedures.

Calgaro’s suit against her daughter, announced Wednesday, is targeting a Minnesota state law that allowed her daughter to begin gender reassignment procedures without parental consent. As a result, Calgaro and her lawyers are demanding that all therapies for her child be halted until they can petition a state court.

Thousands Demonstrate Against South Korean President

Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Seoul on Saturday in the fourth straight weekend of protest against embattled President Park Geun-hye.

Park is resisting calls to step down amid an ongoing political crisis in which she is alleged to have let an old friend meddle in state affairs.

The scandal has rocked Park’s presidency and united Koreans in disapproval, culminating in a protest last weekend that saw a million people march on Seoul by some estimates.

Saturday’s protest was smaller as protest groups also organized demonstrations in regional capitals. Police said at least 155,000 people had packed into a central Seoul square early on Saturday evening for a candle-lit rally. Organizers said the number was 500,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No photoshop here, folks; you are looking at a large group of some VERY ticked off South Koreans!!

Pope Francis Denounces ‘Epidemic Of Animosity’ Toward Minorities

Pope Francis on Saturday said an “epidemic of animosity” against people of other races or religions was hurting the weakest in society, striking a note of caution against the rise of populist nationalism.

Little more than a week after Donald Trump was elected the next U.S. president, buoying anti-immigrant parties in Europe and elsewhere, the pope noted “how quickly those among us with the status of a stranger, an immigrant or a refugee become a threat, take on the status of an enemy...

“An enemy because they come from a distant country or have different customs. An enemy because of the color of their skin, their language or their social class. An enemy because they think differently or even have a different faith,” he said at a ceremony to induct new cardinals.

While not naming any country, Francis appeared to refer to anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim attitudes that surfaced during the U.S. campaign and since the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pope Francis, it is one thing to name, blame, and shame; but when was the last time, please, in the 21st century, that the Vatican opened its doors to immigrants and the undocumented, and let them stay there, for free?!?

Your Holiness, the word in the Spanish language of Argentina would be, "Nunca", or never.

Europe is in a mess, attempting to deal with an unprecedented explosion of rapes and violence, courtesy of this immigration; and Muslim immigrants do this because they believe they can get away with such acts with impunity, which is the reality right now.

The problem in the US, sir, is not Muslim immigrants per se, but Muslim immigrants who have absolutely no desire to assimilate, and become a part of the fabric which unites this country.

I defend any person's right to worship as they see fit; and were there a solidarity march on Oahu to honor that right, to keep churches, mosques, and synagogues, and our Buddhist temples safe, I would most probably be marching in it; however, if any immigrant, legal or not, starts reading me the riot act about my having to change, to suit their perceptions of how I should comport myself, all bets are off.

And a question I would suggest you ask yourself; why are so many of these immigrants, both in Europe and the US, not members of families, but young men of military age?!?

I'm just saying, your Holiness.

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Finally Details Fake News Countermeasures

Facebook Inc, facing withering criticism for failing to stem a flood of phony news articles in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election, is taking a series of steps to weed out hoaxes and other types of false information, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post Friday evening.

Facebook has long insisted that it is a technology company and not a publisher, and rejects the idea that it should be held responsible for the content that its users circulate on the platform. Just after the election, Zuckerberg said the notion that fake or misleading news on Facebook had helped swing the election to Donald Trump was a “crazy idea.”

Zuckerberg then said last Saturday that more than 99 percent of what people see on Facebook is authentic, calling “only a very small amount” fake news and hoaxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The independent media also works very hard to make sure that their stories are fact-based, Mr. Zuckerberd; and should you continue to prevent more conservative, thoughtful, but not false, posts which contain no racially insensitive, misogynistic or hateful observations, I do hope Santa gifts you with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and soon!!

INSTALLING A TORTURE FAN AT CIA

President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo, an open aficionado of torture practices used in the “war on terror,” to be CIA director shows that Trump was serious when he said he would support “waterboarding and much worse.”

Earlier, there had been a sliver of hope that that, while on the campaign trail, Trump was simply playing to the basest instincts of many Americans who have been brainwashed – by media, politicians, and the CIA itself – into believing that torture “works.” The hope was that the person whom Trump would appoint to head the agency would disabuse him regarding both the efficacy and the legality of torture.

But such advice is not likely from Pompeo, who has spoken out against the closing of CIA’s “black sites” used for torture and has criticized the requirement that interrogators adhere to anti-torture laws. He has also opposed closing the prison at Guantanamo, which has become infamous for torture and even murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am profoundly disappointed by this appointment, because at the end of the day, torture doesn't produce actionable intelligence; it simply gets the tortured person to say whatever his torturers want him or her to confess to, in order to get the torture to stop.

FLASHBACK:Who's Advising Mitt Romney on Foreign Policy?

With Mitt Romney's comments on Libya drawing attention today-specifically, his criticism of Obama-it's worth examining whom Romney listens to on such matters.

Dan Senor is one of Romney's closest advisers on foreign policy.

Romney keeps a large group of foreign-policy advisers, eight of whom participated in the early neoconservative group Project for a New American Century think tank, founded in 1997 and headed by William Kristol, the Nation's Ari Berman reported in May. In the same month, The New York Times' Magazine's David Sanger reported on discontent within that big team, with some complaining that Romney only listens to Bolton.

Trump meets with Romney, secretary of state job to potentially be discussed

President-elect Donald Trump met Saturday with Mitt Romney to purportedly discuss the possibility of Romney becoming secretary of state.

"We had a far-reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters of the world of interest to the United States, of real significance," Romney, a successful businessman and former Massachusetts governor, said after the roughly 90-minute meeting.

Romney called Trump a “fraud” in a speech he delivered in March in which he asked Republicans to vote for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Gov. John Kasich or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

California Man Blinded By Rubber Bullets Sues Police For Constitutional Violations

A California man is suing the city of San Jose and its police for blinding him with rubber bullets as he threatened suicide, but posed no danger to either the public or law enforcement. He was also wounded in the leg and chest.

Benjamin Cooper’s case has passed unnoticed until recently. Late October he filed a lawsuit, hoping to hold local police responsible for trauma he sustained almost a year ago.

Trump won the popular vote?

Based on reports in mainstream media, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote for President. The facts, however, indicate otherwise. Before getting into that, we should consider why that is important.

The answer is that most people think that whoever gets the most votes is supposed to be the winner. The Constitution, on the other hand, says otherwise. When the Constitution was written, it was understood that the federal government was beholden to the states that created it, not to the general citizenry. Voters chose their state representatives, but the states chose the Senators and the President.

It was an excellent arrangement to diffuse political power and preserve state supremacy. To make it work, the President is to be elected by delegates chosen by the political parties within each state every four years for that task. This group is called the Electoral College.

Venezuelan president's relatives guilty in US cocaine trial.

Two nephews of Venezuela’s first lady were found guilty on Friday on US charges that they tried to carry out a multimillion-dollar drug deal to obtain a large amount of cash to help their family stay in power. Franqui Francisco Flores de Freitas and Efraín Antonio Campo Flores, nephews of Cilia Flores, the wife of the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, were convicted by a federal jury in Manhattan of conspiring to import cocaine into the United States.

Turkish govt supports bill that sets child rapists free if they marry victim

Turkey’s ruling government has brought a motion to Parliament that would allow rapists to go free if they marry their victims, as a way to alleviate the legal complications associated with child marriage.

The Justice and Development Party (AKP) supported a motion, which was brought to the floor of the General Assembly on Thursday night, that would allow the immediate release of more than 4,000 convicted rapists from Turkish prisons if they marry their victim, reports Turkish Minute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erdogan appears to be hell-bent on bringing Turkey back to its feudal past, and the view, as evidenced by this proposed law, is not pretty.

Apparently, the only thing which could possibly save Turkish women from such a law, should it be passed, will be a massive, permanent immigration of Turkish women to other countries.

Criminal Courts Have Quietly Moved from “May” Convict to “Must” Convict Jury Instructions

A great article about the history, and present state, of jury nullification, from the Fully Informed Jury Association [FIJA.] Quote: ". I have sat in courtrooms where judges not only tell juries they “must” convict, but where the judges emphasize the word “must” as they say the word. In my experience, judges seem especially prone to emphasize “must” in firearm prosecutions, perhaps out of fear that jurors might flirt with considering the Second Amendment as a basis for jury nullification. The Dougherty ruling—built upon a carefully-analyzed split decision—has been something of the law of the land for forty years. The decision has been referenced more than 300 times by subsequent judicial opinions. As federal case law has developed, the Dougherty rule that judges need never inform jurors of their power to veto laws (or the application of laws to specific situations) has become the rule in all thirteen federal circuits.

ELECTORAL VOTERS 'DELUGED' WITH DEATH THREATS IN MULTIPLE STATES

One of Michigan’s 16 electors who will be called upon to cast a vote validating the election of Donald Trump in the Electoral College has testified on video that he and others in the state are receiving “dozens and dozens of death threats” from Hillary Clinton supporters urging them to switch their votes to Clinton.

On Dec. 19 the Electoral College will convene to cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, with each state’s electors pledged to vote for the candidate elected on Nov. 8 in their state.

But a handful of states have no laws making it illegal for the electors to change their vote while others have only a minor penalty such as a fine for doing so. If Clinton’s supporters can get enough of the 163 electors from states where Trump both won and votes can be legally switched on Dec. 19, Hillary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the true face of the current Democratic party, the "true believer" Clintonistas; issuing death threats and intimidating electors are simply the absolute normal for them.

They don't care how bad the optics of these tactics look, as long as they get their way; and in the world of the Clinton cartel, the ends justify the means.

I mean, how many other "political power couples" have a dead bodies list, figuratively hanging around their necks, like an albatross?!?

We're Being Played

(…) His students' reaction is NOT about losing an election. It's because these people watch media, and the (Clinton-controlled) media spent the last four months working overtime to program everyone in the country that Trump is a soulless monster come to eat them and their families, roasting their babies on a spit while laughing, and so on.

This emotional programming has been extremely effective. That's why people are rioting now. Not because they aren't good losers, but because they've been successfully emotionally programmed by the Clinton Campaign's media arm (CNN, CNBC, and millions of scary social media posts), who are very good at what they do.

Venezuela Caps Daily Bank Withdrawals at US$5 to Avoid Bankruptcy

Venezuela has put a cap on daily bank withdrawals at VEF $10,000, or US $5.26.

The Superintendency of Banking Sector Institutions (Sudeban) ordered public and private banks to refrain from paying out more than US $ 5.26 per day in cash from offices or ATMs.

Users have reportedly expressed frustration at trying to withdrawal money since November 15 with checks or through cashiers.

According to a statement released by Sudeban, users can make a maximum of four transactions per day to withdraw up to US $5.

The decision was made as Venezuela suffers from rampant inflation exceeding 750 percent, which has forced many citizens to handle more cash for their purchases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will not end well; one way or the other, the Maduro government is on life support, with few options with which to redeem itself, financially.

Will the United States become a "managed democracy"?

Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Inequality is the confiscation of people's wealth by the elite. The two are incompatible. In this face-off between the many and the few, one of the two has to give. Will it be the people or the oligarchy? Democracy or an "illusion", a "managed democracy"? This is the juncture the United States is at.

Car spray-painted with anti-Trump graffiti, set on fire in SE Portland

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
A car was spray-painted with anti-Donald Trump graffiti and then set on fire in southeast Portland.

A reward up to $1,000 is being offered to catch whoever did it.

The owner of the Ford Mustang, Jermaine Streeter, said he was out with friends and came back to find his car destroyed.

"They tagged my vehicle and burned it. You didn't have to torch my vehicle," said Streeter.

Streeter is a Marine and supports President-elect Donald Trump and had a sticker on his car to show it. He now hopes the people who tagged and burned his car are caught.

"I hope they serve some time and understand what it means to have something taken away from them that they worked hard to get.

Trump the Anti-Semite? Or is it just that liberal Jews hate Trump?

One of the more curious bits of invective hurled at presidential candidate Donald Trump was the claim that he is an anti-Semite. The allegation is particularly odd as Trump worked comfortably for decades in the heavily Jewish New York real estate world, his daughter Ivanka, whom he is very close to, has converted to Judaism and is married to a Jew who was prominent in Donald’s campaign while Trump’s grandson from that marriage is being raised as Jewish. Trump was Grand Marshallof New York City’s 2004 Salute to Israel Parade and has contributed to predominantly Jewish charities.

F-35 crisis as Pentagon’s top weapon testing official warns plan to put unfinished $400bn fighters into service puts pilots at 'significant risk'

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter has been hailed as the 'most expensive weapon in history, costing $400bn.

Now, it is finally set for its first mission - despite a last ditch warning from the Pentagon’s top weapon testing official that it is not ready and could put pilot's lives at risk.

In a memo obtained by the Project On Government Oversight, Michael Gilmore, Director, Operational Test and Evaluation, warns that the Joint Strike Fighter Program Office is simply cut short the plane's development phase in order to pretend that schedule and cost goals are being met.

'The purpose of this memorandum is to document my continuing concerns regarding progress in the -35 JSF program as you prepare to conduct the upcoming Defense Acquisition Board review,' the note says, according to War is boring.

It calls for the entire programme to be restructured so enough testing can be completed.

If we deliver—” by "we" he means the Trump White House "—we’ll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years. That’s what the Democrats missed, they were talking to these people with companies with a $9 billion market cap employing nine people. It’s not reality. They lost sight of what the world is about.”

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

Tell Eliot Cohen to get lost.

For the central canon of the neocon creed has been and always will be a militant internationalism.

The kudzu vine is one of the most invasive plants in existence: you cut it back, but that just emboldens it! You dig it up, but it keeps returning, stronger than ever. It is, in short, the horticultural equivalent of the neoconservatives, who have survived in spite of leading us over a cliff in Iraq, being roundly repudiated by the voters in the last three presidential elections.

Banned At Alex Jones Again!

Don't criticize Donald Trump's appointment of Pompeo or Sessions or he will turn you off. Don't try to post same here.The story will never make it up.
Pompeo wants to kill Snowden and Assad and continue the war in Syria even if it means war with Russia. He co-authored the pro Monsanto labeling law and has business associations with the Koch brothers.
Sessions is an Old Drug Warrior. If Trump appoints a neocon like Bolton to State or Defense I would say that most of us have been had once again.
P.S. Took issue with P.J. Watson for putting up the article on the ambulance being blocked and a man dying without time stamps on the tweets. I found the vid with the time stamps which proved the falsity of the story as presented at Infowars. P.J. put up a story about how the liberal media is manufacturing fake news and that seemed to be the place to comment and call him.That could have got me banned too.

NY Times Attacks Trump's Twitter Account As Fake News While Lying About Ivanka

The NY Times openly lies about Donald Trump and Ivanka on Twitter while labeling his Twitter account as a media outlet being used to spread fake news.

Last night Donald Trump announced that Ford has reversed their decision to move Lincoln factories to Mexico but instead will work with the Trump administration to keep the factories and the jobs inside the United States.

Of course, this has sparked outrage in the liberal elitist media who immediately went to work claim Donal Trump is lying about the announcement even though it has been confirmed by Bloomberg and other news outlets.

In smearing the announcement, the NY Times attacked Donald Trump's Twitter account as being used as media outlet to spread this fake news.

The NY Times then went onto to spread lies about Ivanka being in charge of Trump's blind trust.

This was done to smear Trump by fabricating a conflict of interest because Trump's daughter attended yesterday's meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“I am sorry to say Mrs Clinton but no – you cannot run the election again. You lost.

“You need to take a leaf out of the Remainers’ book. They lost a referendum here in dear ol’ Blighty and ever since then they have totally accepted the result.

A group of House Democrats called on President Barack Obama to pardon about 750,000 young undocumented immigrants who are temporarily shielded from deportation under a 2012 executive order, a move that reflects growing concern about a shift in immigration policy expected after President-elect Donald Trump takes power in January.

Spy Chief Admits US Doesn’t Know How Wikileaks Got Hillary Emails

One more lie has been exposed as Fake news involving a Hillary Clinton lie that was supposedly fact checked and then echoed throughout the corporate media echo chamber.

It's part of a year long pattern of media lies which has resulted in corporate media news outlets losing nearly all of the public's trust.

Just a few weeks ago, Hillary and the democrats were running around blaming everything on the Russians and in the Presidential Debate she lied to the public stating the WikiLeaks emails shouldn't be trusted because they were hacked by Russia.

President-elect Donald Trump hasn't yet announced the members of his cabinet but a brief statement issued Thursday could be an indication Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is headed to the Justice Department.

Sessions, the first Senator to endorse the business-mogul-turned-politician, met with Trump at his New York office yesterday.
The Trump transition team – lead by Vice President-elect Mike Pence and with Sessions as a vice-chair – issued a statement about the meeting:

The Trump voters you don't know

The Trump voters you don't know

UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER There's a fear in blue America that a groundswell of racism propelled Donald Trump to victory. But statistics – and conversations with the voters who turned the election – don't bear that out.
By Staff NOVEMBER 17, 2016

“I don’t think Trump supporters are racist, because then I’d be racist,” said the African-American woman from Conyers, Ga., just before the election. “He’s just expressing how people feel.”

Minorities for Trump
Even among minorities, Trump performed surprisingly well – at least in relative terms. In an election that stirred up so much racial tension, Trump managed to win more black and Hispanic votes than Mitt Romney in 2012. Trump’s 8 percent of the black vote was up two points from Mr. Romney, as was his 29 percent of the Hispanic vote.

The president-elect met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for 90 minutes in Trump Tower on Thursday, his first face-to-face meeting with a foreign leader since the election.

“I am convinced that Mr. Trump is a leader whom I can have great confidence in,” Abe said after the meeting.

Donald Trump’s Moment: Will It Last? - by Lawrence Davidson

On election day Hillary Clinton, with all her data specialists and poll gurus, came up short. The morning after, they didn’t know what hit them - that is, the unexpected fact that statistical data and real life don’t always coincide. People often tell pollsters what they think the pollsters want to hear, or what media tells them is the expected answer, while clandestinely harboring different opinions that they share only with their family, friends and drinking buddies.

US judge orders FBI, CIA to disclose Occupy surveillance

A federal judge has ordered the FBI and other federal agencies to turn over any potential evidence they spied on Occupy Philadelphia protesters.

The FBI, CIA and National Security Agency have 60 days to comply with the order from Senior U.S. District Judge Berle M. Schiller. The order follows another right-to-know case that revealed the FBI was monitoring Occupy Wall Street activities in New York and spinoff efforts from Florida to Alaska.

Civil rights lawyer Paul Hetznecker hopes to learn if the agencies surveilled demonstrators who encamped outside Philadelphia City Hall for seven weeks in 2011 to protest income inequality.

TRUMP PICK FOR SECRETARY OF DEFENSE WANTS TO CONFRONT RUSSIA

For those who believe Donald Trump will put an end to decades of war and interventionism, consider his possible selection as secretary of defense. Senator Tom Cotton is a senator from Arkansas. He sits on the Armed Services Committee and is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations. Cotton is considered a “hawk,” in other words, a neocon. Speaking at the Defense One Summit in Washington Thursday, Cotton said Trump will confront Russia. “I believe Donald Trump will be viewed, not just by Putin but by other world leaders, as taking a tougher line” against Russia, he said. Russia “has to have a new set of boundaries. They have to recognize that we are going to stand by our alliance structures,” according to the senator.

LITERALLY SHAKING

Until the nationwide protests of the last few days, I had no idea how bad the problem was, but our nation is drowning in drama queenery.

The immediate reaction of most celebrities to Trump's victory was: "THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR MY TAKE ON THE ELECTION!”

Aaron Sorkin and David Remnick, in matching pink housecoats and fuzzy slippers, wrote hysterical jeremiads about the cataclysm of Trump's election.

Sorkin was especially irked that Trump was supported by white men who don't appreciate rap music. As proof that the end was near, he triumphantly reported: "The Dow futures dropped 700 points overnight." After a brief drop, the Dow surged to historic highs, recording its biggest weekly gain in five years.

But I can't wait to read the letters these guys wrote to their children about Bill Clinton! Don't leave us hanging guys -- post those, too, please.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have become a very vain nation, as evidenced by the "Selfie" epidemic. I too have noticed all these celebrities screaming that we should pay attention to how they feel.

White Female High School Teen Viciously Beaten and Stomped by Black Female Over Pro Trump Texting, Yet Attacker NOT Arrested nor Charged with Assault Despite Damning Video Evidence

Jade describes her attacker as "a girl who came up to me" but doesn't identify her as a black girl because in California, it's no longer politically correct for white people, thanks to Leftist Media's Rules of Cultural Marxism, to mention the race of the thug who viciously beats you up because you might then be labeled a "racist" and receive death threats by email (which happened in this case). In her video interview with the news reporter, Jade and her mother spend half of their interview time assuring the reporter that they don't have a racist bone in their body and Jade has plenty of black and Hispanic friends visiting the house all the time. In this obsequious PC environment, the most damning statement that Jade's mother could make about the brutal beating inflicted by the black female gang banger is that she was "appalled."

If Trump dies before December 19 Electoral College vote, Hillary could get selected ‘President.’ Will .01% rogue state ‘leaders’ pull this trigger, or use Pence as ‘Puppet in Chief’ if Trump won’t play ball?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

An interesting option of the .01% wanna-be “masters” of the easily-verified US illegal rogue state empire would be to “heart attack” President-elect Trump (or some other form of assassination) to allow the December 19th vote of the Electoral College go to Clinton. The 20th Amendment to the US Constitution places VP Pence as President if Trump dies after Electoral College selection, including before the January 20, 2017 noon-time end of President Obama’s term.

The purpose of this move would be to ensure a “cooperative” President for an empire engaged in constant “Big Lie” crimes centered in war, looting, and lying. Discussed Cabinet appointments so far seem to indicate a cooperative Trump, but this didn’t prevent an assassination attempt on President Reagan just after 1981’s inauguration that would have placed the JFK assassin/CIA Director/Vice President Bush as US President.

US ELECTIONS SHOCKWAVES HIT EUROPE

Donald Trump’s startling and explosive victory has not only shaken America’s oligarchy to its core, it’s also sending shock waves across Europe and scaring the top hats off plutocrats and their tame politicians.

The great Mark Twain wrote early in the 20th century: ‘if you don’t read newspapers you are uninformed. But if you do read them, you are misinformed.’ Amen.

As with the 2003 war against Iraq, the US media totally dropped its mask of phony impartiality and became a cheerleader for the Clintons and their financial backers.

Media was clearly revealed as a propaganda organ for the ruling elite. No wonder its disgusted clients are decamping to online sources or just ignoring the biased media.

World Suffers From Trump Shell Shock - Here's What Will Happen Next

As I have documented for years, the elites openly call for the ultimate eradication of national sovereignty and the formation of a single world economy, a single world currency and, eventually, a single world government. In order to make this omelet, they intend to break a few eggs (and collapse a few economies). By blaming "national sovereignty" (and the people that defend it) for this crisis, they hope to convince the masses that the only practical solution is total centralization.

Trump’s Slim Chance for Greatness.

Or, to put it in a vernacular that Trump might use, does he want to be “Paul Ryan’s bitch” on domestic policies? And does he want to surrender his foreign policy to the “wise guys” of Washington’s neocon establishment.

Standing Rock Sioux votes to expel rowdy pipeline protesters while weighing lawsuit against police

The Sioux are catching on.

By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 16, 2016
The Standing Rock Sioux tribal council has voted to ask a camp known for its militant anti-pipeline protesters to pack their bags while also preparing for a possible lawsuit against law enforcement.
The minutes from the council’s Nov. 1 meeting posted online this week show that the panel voted 10-0 “to ask Red Warrior Camp to leave,” an apparent sign of the tribe’s uneasiness with the increasingly aggressive tactics used by some activists fighting the Dakota Access pipeline.
