Source: SHTF Plan, by Mac Slavo The mystery deepens. A week or so ago, conspiracy theorists were scratching their heads as to why more than 8500 people in Australia would suddenly have to a hospita…
The MSM is on a roll over so called “fake news” but it’s really much like the pot calling the kettle black I’m afraid. Anyone remember during the presidency of Bush 2 and shortly after 9/11 when Americans were told that Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction”? In fact, it was the MSM who assured us, along with Bush 2, that there was no doubt Saddam had WMD! And this despite assertions by UN weapons inspectors that Iraq had no WMD.
Yes, it was none other than the Main Stream Media (MSM) that was behind this FAKE NEWS! And that little bit of FAKE NEWS has cost countless lives of American service men and women and is STILL costing lives not to mention the countless lives of Iraqi men, women, and children. This bit of MSM FAKE NEWS was not simply FAKE NEWS (outright LIE) but also turned out to be DEADLY! Yet, these charlatans would now have us believe that only they, and they alone, report the real news while alternative media sites report only “fake news.” Sorry but I’m not buying it! And frankly, this is but one example of the MSM putting out FAKE NEWS so you’d better not buy it either.
In fact, for a long time now Americans have been suspicious of the so called “news” put out by the MSM. Most Americans now see clearly that what the MSM actually puts out is POLITICAL PROPAGANDA in the SAME style as Pravda did under the Soviet regime during the Cold War. Ironically, the word “Pravda” in Russian means “truth” but there was very little truth ever reported by Pravda during the Soviet era! Further, under the Soviet regime Russians were only entitled to “official party news” of which Pravda was a part, being one of the “official” media of the Soviets. Now the American MSM is attempting to play the same game by claiming they, and only they, report truth! But the example of Saddam and his WMD fiasco along with many other examples proves beyond any doubt that the MSM cannot be trusted and does not report solely the truth.
What this move is to silence what the MSM calls “fake news” is a ploy to silence FREE SPEECH! Hey I might believe that UFOs are real but the MSM has claimed repeatedly they are not real. So who’s right and who’s wrong? Is my belief that UFOs are real “fake news” OR is the MSM denial that they are real “fake news”? And just who gets to decide what is and is not fake news anyhow?
I don’t want to be indoctrinated and I want to retain my Constitutional right to freedom of speech. I also want to retain my human right to believe what I want to and not be told what to believe by some MSM political puppet! I’m 100% sure that the majority of Americans feel just as I do. Personally, I’ll listen at times to the MSM and also alternative media and then I WILL DECIDE what I believe is real or fake and, frankly, I don’t need some ass of a social engineer claiming to be a “journalist” tell me which is which. I’m perfectly capable of deciding for myself just as is EVERY OTHER AMERICAN!
If this nation is now going to “reign in” so called “fake news” then that reigning in MUST begin with the MAIN STREAM MEDIA who have a notorious reputation for putting out FAKE NEWS! So let’s clip their wings FIRST and then we’ll decide what to do with the alternative media IF anything!
Yes “fake news” can be dangerous and cause problems just as the LIE about WMD and Saddam has proven for over a decade now. And we have the MSM to thank for that as any REAL investigative reporting would have clearly shown that Saddam had no WMD. Think of all the lives of our service men and women that could have been spared had the MSM done some real investigative reporting into the Bush 2 administrations assertion that Iraq had WMD! Instead now what we have seems to be perpetual war that has gotten our nation and the West NOWHERE! In fact, the terrorists groups look to me bigger, better armed, and more organized than they were in 2001-2002!! And btw I couldn’t help but notice back then that after it was finally revealed that Saddam had no WMD the issue was rather quickly swept under that nasty old carpet and not a word was breathed about it again! What a SCAM!! And the MSM did Bush 2s BIDDING like the lackeys they are!!!!
I don’t need some self appointed, self righteous “journalist” telling me what is real and what is not real. I’ll decide for myself thank you very much! And I’m sure I echo the sentiments of MOST Americans and the MSM had better get a clue really fast if they want to continue to stay in business. In fact, that is exactly why the MSM is going after alternative media to shut them down for “fake news.” The MSM knows that they are losing readership and viewership quickly while the alternative media is gaining. And the MSM can’t stand that because it really cuts into the ratings of their “shows” (and yes they are shows and certainly not newscasts IMO). So now they are trying to force us to listen to them. Well is ISN’T GOING TO WORK because contrary to what the MSM thinks about Americans we are NOT the hillbilly rednecks they think we are!!
This “fake news” business is just ONE MORE attempt at turning our Republic into a COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP period and the MSM fully seems to support that happening. What a bunch of disgusting slime!
Not that it comes as any great surprise to most of us but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continues to be absolutely clueless when it comes to the direction of the Democratic Party. Appearing Sunday on Face the Nation (CBS) Pelosi was asked what she’d say to those in the party wanting a fresh start and what she’d have done differently in light of the massive defeat for Democrats across the nation last month. She began her answer by stating, “Well, I don’t think people want a new direction.” WTF? Hey Pelosi where in the hell have you been lately, in a cave? Last month Democrats lost control of the US Senate, they lost 2/3’s of the State Legislatures, and the US Presidency and you don’t think the people in this country want a new direction?
Continuing, Pelosi said, “What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through.” A better “connection” seriously? I think in other words what you’re advocating PROPAGANDA! In that case then the answer from the American people is a resounding HELL NO! We didn’t buy the dribble put out by Hillary Clinton this time around. We also didn’t by the masked Communist Agenda that the Dem Party is now pushing!
The fact is the Dems have been being defeated time and time again since 2008 around the country in various elections and it seems to me that Pelosi is not CONNECTING with the REALITY of those defeats. Instead she continues to ply the same old bullshit message that is, in fact, no longer resonating with the American working families!
FACT is that America’s working poor and minorities are beginning to realize just how much BULLSHIT the Democrat message is especially lately! We’re all asking the Dems now, “What have you done for me lately” and the answer is NOTHING! Black America is no better off after 8 years of Obama. America’s working poor are no better off after 8 years of Obama. In fact, when it comes to the cost of living and jobs we are WORSE off now than we were back in 2008! Continue Reading
The Secretary of the Army Corp of Engineers announced today that the route of the Dakota Access Pipeline will be DENIED. The corp said that the best alternative is to explore other routes for the pipeline at this point. Cheers erupted within the makeshift camp of protesters and veterans who have been gathered for months now in North Dakota opposing the pipeline route which would have run within 1/2 mile of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and crossed under the Missouri River. Protesters say the pipeline would have adverse effects on drinking water and sacred sites in the area.
Tomorrow is the deadline given by the US Government for protesters to abandon their makeshift camp due to, alleged, worries about plunging temps and snow in the area. As far as we know that deadline is still scheduled to take effect tomorrow.
President Obama has repeatedly asked the Energy Transfer Partners company who is behind the pipeline project to stop construction but those requests have been ignored. Spokesmen with the company said last month that they were 100% sure that the pipeline will be approved by the incoming Trump Administration regardless of what the US Army Corp of Engineers says to the contrary!
Senator Bernie Sanders praised today’s move saying he was thankful the project has listened to Native American concerns and others who oppose the pipeline.
For now the indigenous peoples of North Dakota are victorious but we’ll see what happens when the Trump Administration takes over the reigns of power come January 20. One thing is certain and that is that the protesters WILL be back if today’s victory is short-lived!
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!
Political Commentary by Viktor Sukov
The end of the Obama era is now drawing to a close and all I can say is Thank God for that. The past 8 years of his presidency have been a complete disaster for our country, for our people, and for the entire world. And Thank God Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election as we would have 4 more years of Obama’s “doctrines” which are a joke to say the least.
In the past 8 years we’ve seen our country reduced to almost a third world nation economically. We’ve seen attempt after attempt by the Obama administration to reduce the most sophisticated and powerful military on the planet to rubble. We’ve been played like fools and we’ve been repeatedly lied to that make one’s head swim. Instead of being a great unifier Barack Obama has turned out to be the Great Divider and he and his administration have divided our nation in ways that were once unimaginable. When it comes to Black Americans, Barack Obama hasn’t done one damned thing for them over the past 8 years and the fact is Black Americans are no better than off than they were 8 years ago and possibly even worse off. That’s a really sad legacy for America’s first “black” POTUS (remember he’s half black and half white).
Obama’s signature piece accomplishment has been the Affordable Healthcare Act aka Obamacare. He touted it as something that would reduce the high costs of medical care and assured us that for the first time in American history healthcare would be affordable to all. Not long ago people got their notices from their health insurance providers and those notices sent most people into a state of SHOCK as they were informed their monthly premiums were going up over 100%! Affordable? It now appears there is NOTHING AFFORDABLE about Obamacare. Continue Reading
The MSM has been riding high for the past 8 years since the election of Barack Obama back in 2008. What they’ve failed to realize is that Obama and his administration played them for the past 8 years pretty much like a fiddle. He took them and molded them into something akin to the old Soviet Pravda, in fact! But, that is soon to change vastly and, in fact, it is already changing with the arrival of Donald Trump in the White House.
Of course you’ve heard about the new debate over “fake news” and the MSM is now grasping at straws as they want censorship of alternative news sites claiming these sites regularly put out “fake news.” However a quick fact check reveals that it is apparently the MSM that puts out MOST of the FAKE news and NOT the alternative media! Case in point, the biggest FAKE NEWS put out by the MSM was that Donald Trump had no possibility at all of winning the White House. And then when he did win no one was more surprised than the MSM apparently. In fact, they’re still gasping over his win! SHOCK! The American people didn’t follow the American MSM Pravda party line or talking points! That put a real burr in the asses of the MSM no doubt.
In a futile attempt to remain on the throne that Obama put them on 8 years ago the MSM is now searching desperately for ways to salvage themselves. Radical solutions are now being called for as public trust in the MSM hits a record LOW. Case in point, a Yahoo columnist thinks he has a sure fired way to keep the MSM on their little thrones. His suggestion? Indoctrinate children in school so that they ONLY place their confidence if the MSM and not alternative media sites! Hopefully, President Trump will do something about the education system that really doesn’t educate our children anymore but indoctrinate them with Lie-beral lies very well it seems!
Yahoo columnist Matt Bal came up with this idea saying that our children need to be “taught” how to “consume” news and Obama himself echoed that same thinking yesterday during an interview. Bal wants to have “media literacy” in our schools that would teach our children to discern “trustworthy” sources of news and information. In other words, what this idea is comes right out of the old Soviet playbook in which Soviet children were “taught” (read indoctrinated and brainwashed) to “discern” information and news. In fact, they were taught to not believe anything that didn’t come out of Pravda and other “official” Soviet media! Seems Bal has missed the point completely, however. How about the MSM returning to JOURNALISM instead of the attempts at social engineering they’ve been engaging in for the past 8 plus years? How about a return to being reporters instead of overly opinionated commentators? And as for public education how about returning to EDUCATION instead of continuing the gross brainwashing and indoctrination that has been happening in our schools and universities for far too long now? How about teaching our kids SKILLS that will get them JOBS and careers? And how about teaching them how to read, do mathematics, and how to write the English language? Now there’s a novel idea, no?
The MSM at present is beside itself over the latest move by President-elect Trump for having phone conversations with various world leaders including the President of Taiwan saying that Trump is risking the “wrath of China.” F— CHINA!! Since when does the fortress of FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY cater to a bunch of COMMUNISTS who have a consistent and undeniable record of human rights abuses? Oh wait, that started 8 years ago with the coming of the “savior” Obama too! FACT is Trump is the President-elect of the USA and he can damn well talk to whomever he wants whether the MSM likes it or approves of it or not so GET USED TO IT!
In yet another demonstration of FAKE NEWS Politico says Obama created an “economic boom” that the lucky Trump will inherit LMAO! WTF? What Obama has created is an economy that is in shambles! Unemployment has hit all time highs under his watch and the Obama Administration’s idea of “good paying jobs” seems to be McDonald’s. WTF? Sorry but McDonald’s does NOT offer good paying jobs period! What Trump will inherit is Obama’s created RECESSION with over 95 million Americans OUT of the workforce! And he’ll also inherit the $20 trillion-dollar debt Obama created! In short, Trump is inheriting a complete DISASTER when it come to the US economy!
As if this were not enough Trump is also inheriting a US military that has been deballed by the Obama Administration and a “foreign policy” (or lack thereof) that has destabilized the Middle East in ways that we couldn’t even imagine 10 years ago! Trump is going to be the “clean up boy” thanks to 8 years of Obama.
When dealing with over inflated egos it is hard when one begins to realize that their stint on the throne is endangered. It’s a real blow to the big egos! Not to mention that come January 20th the MSM will likely NOT get their “talking points” memo (read Official Party Line Propaganda) and the MSM just might have to resort back to JOURNALISM and INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING God forbid! They thought they had the American people well indoctrinated but last month they got the surprise of their lives and discovered We The People are NOT buying their social engineering BULLSHIT! Now that right there just smacks all those big egos right off their thrones doesn’t it? Sure does!
Frankly, I’m glad to see the dethroning of the MSM beginning. For too long now the MSM has assumed that the American people and voter is dumber than a doorknob and over the course of the past 8 years they’ve consistently demoralized the American people on Main Street. They’ve consistently attempted to manipulate us in the past 8 years plus and they’ve done everything they possibly could to divide us and make us hate each other. Further, they’ve turned the relationship between us and our police into an adversarial relationship that has resulted in a number of lives being lost on BOTH sides! Of course, during the whole time they’ve claimed that they are “fair and balanced” but the FACT is they’ve been anything BUT fair and balanced over the past 8 years! We The People are not as stupid as the MSM thinks and btw we DON’T need our schools teaching our children how to “discern” information and news as we do a fine job of that already AT HOME! I can hardly wait for Trump to confront the MSM as he promised he would during his campaign. I can hardly wait for him to tell the MSM to pack their shit and get the hell out! Now that is really going to deflate their overblown egos isn’t it? LMAO 🙂
There is absolutely no question that the global climate is changing and for that matter climate is ALWAYS CHANGING as it never stays stagnant. Sometimes climate changes in small even subtle ways and other times climate changes in somewhat dramatic ways. But the point is climate is always changing.
Thus is the case with the sea ice in Antarctica and what a new study has discovered is that the extend of the sea ice there has changed very little over the course of the past 100 years. Man-made global warming is NOT drastically reducing the sea ice as some would like to have us believe. However, in my opinion there is indeed man-made global warming contributors and we all need to do our part to reduce greenhouse gases and emissions as I firmly believe humankind has a sacred obligation to be STEWARDS not pillagers of our planet (nature). Truth is we DO do things that are bad not only for the planet’s environments but for ourselves and we need to curb these toxic practices as best we can and within reason.
That said, the new study conducted an analysis over the past 100 years data from previous Antarctic expeditions and what they found is that when they superimposed past shipping expedition routes in Antarctica over current routes there has been little significant change over those 100 years. Researchers also reviewed the log books of polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton from their expeditions between 1901-1904 and 1907-1909. What they discovered in those comparisons is that the assertion that sea ice has declined after the 1950’s in the region due to man-caused global warming CANNOT be supported.
In fact, changes in sea ice are NORMAL and are part of a NATURAL CYCLE and are NOT the result of massive man-made global warming! In fact, over the past 30 years Antarctic sea ice has actually increased slightly and we know this from satellite observations over the continent. This according to Dr Jonathan Day a meteorology professor who was part of the study. He said, “…these new findings suggest it may not be anything new.”
Additionally, our Sun is now reaching its lowest activity level not seen since 2011 and there is growing speculation among some scientists that what is happening is NOT global warming but the possibility that we may be entering into a mini ice age. In fact, we ARE ALREADY IN AN ICE AGE and have been for a long while now. Since around 12,000 years ago when recorded history began (anything prior to that is deemed pre-history) our planet has been in a warming period and judging from what we know about such periods in the past we are assured that the ice will return. BTW some of those past warming periods have seen temps HIGHER than what we see today by far!
When it comes to the Sun the longest solar minimum that we know of lasted for about 70 years. That is known as the Maunder Minimum which was between 1645-1715. During that period the Thames River in London froze over and “frost fairs” became rather popular there as Europe was thrown into what is known as the “Little Ice Age.” Normally, ice-free rivers throughout Europe froze over and snow fields remained year around at lower altitudes. We may be heading into a repeat of the Mini Ice Age OR we may be heading into something much, much bigger. In fact, we may be headed into the end era of this warming period we have been living in!
Fudging the data and changing temps to appear to be a few degrees higher as NASA and some scientists have and ARE doing is not going to change the growing apparent reality! A lot of the global warming hype is geared towards MONEY in the form of carbon taxes all scheduled to go to that HIGHLY CORRUPT body known as the United Nations! In fact, their own scientists have been uncovered red-handed outright LYING about climate data if you recall not so long ago! Here’s what gets me, however, and what concerns me MOST. The global warming advocates have been preparing us for global warming but what happens if we get global cooling (ICE AGE) instead? How many people will die of hypothermia and starvation? Billions!
As I said, climate change is a reality and there is absolutely no doubt that our planet’s climate IS changing. Question is just what is it changing to? Warming or massive cooling? If we are going to tackle climate change in an intelligent and logical way void of the hype then we need to tackle the problem with level headedness and common sense. We need to look at past data such as this new study did and compare it to the present and draw our hypotheses from such. Politicizing climate change as we have done is HIGHLY liable to put humanity on the verge of mass extinction by a failure to prepare us for what is REALLY coming.
Ice core and sea core samples have shown repeatedly that ever so often something happens on this planet that is INSTANT and FATAL! We don’t know what exactly it is but we do know we find animals and trees under the ice that appear to have been flash frozen. We need to take a lesson from that and prepare instead of stroking all the hype motivated by BIG MONEY.
Finally, whatever the case, warming or cooling, we each have a responsibility to be stewards of our planet and it’s environment. For far too long we have viewed ourselves as dominators and this has resulted in the pillaging of our environments all so we can gain mega profits! We DO need to cut our production of dangerous gases that are indeed man-made toxins! We DO need to clean up our environments on land and sea and in the atmosphere. We DO need to not only look for safer ways of doing things that are less harmful to the environment and we DO need to COEXIST with our environment! We may not be able to stop climate change, and likely we won’t, BUT we will enjoy a less toxic planet! It’s time to cast out the politics in the issue of climate change and start applying some common sense and REAL SCIENCE!!
commentary by Viktor Sukov —
President-elect Donald Trump has launched his “Thank You Tour” with the intention of thanking his supporters across America which is a first in case you didn’t know it. It’s nice to see someone with gratitude and hopefully by his example all of us can learn to be grateful in a society that is far too often not grateful for anything. As he launched his tour he let it be known that he intends to nominate retired US Marine Corp General James Mattis, aka “Mad Dog,” as his Defense Secretary which hopefully well bring the US military our of its PC nightmare and we’ll once again have real soldiers again and real military leadership. Mattis is a man with a set between his legs and is just what America needs to drive home to our enemies that the USA isn’t going to take anymore of their bullshit!
On his tour President-elect Trump also outlined his “America First” policy which is something this nation has been in need of for a long, long time now. Speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio said, “NOW is the time to embrace the one thing that truly unites us….AMERICA!” He went on to say, “There is NO global anthem! There is no global flag, no global currency, no global citizenship. We will be united as AMERICANS.” Speaking further Trump said that attempts to “separate us by race, by age, by income, by place of birth, and by geography” are O-V-E-R! Additionally, he added, “We hear a lot of talk about how we are becoming a globalized world, but the relationships that people value in this country are LOCAL.”
“We pledge allegiance to one flag and that flag is the AMERICAN flag! From now on its going to be AMERICA FIRST,” Trump told the gathered crowd adding that never again will any other interest come before our national interest. “…when America is UNITED nothing is beyond our reach. We are going to have a country that is so great, in so many different ways….we WILL compete in the world….in a world that is a two-way road, not the one-way around! The advantages will come back to our country as they haven’t for many years,” Trump went on to say. “We’re going to put OURSELVES FIRST! We seek peace and harmony with the nations of the world BUT that means recognizing the right of every country, INCLUDING OUR OWN, to look after its citizens. We’ve put other countries first and we’ve had people running our country that truly did not know what the HELL they were doing!” Trumps statements were interrupted numerous times by applause and cheers.
In terms of the American worker Trump said his administration is going to protect the American worker that past administrations have forgotten and they’ve forgotten that it was the American worker who truly built this country. He promised his administration WILL NOT FORGET! He pointed out that one of the major reasons America is so divided today is due to our government’s failure to protect the American worker and their families. “We are not unified,” Trump said, “but WE WILL BE!”
Referring to Washington politicians (namely that WORTHLESS body we call Congress) Trump told the crowd “Washington politicians have spent to long appealing to particular interests, they’ve forgotten how to appeal to the NATIONAL INTERESTS! Our goal is to strengthen the bonds of trust between our citizens, to restore the sense of membership in our shared NATIONAL COMMUNITY.” Continue Reading
President-elect Donald Trump today announced he is appointing retired US Marine Corp General James “Mad Dog” Mattis as Secretary of Defense. FINALLY A REAL MAN AND REAL SOLIDER IS GOING TO HEAD THE US MILITARY instead of the WEAK WILLED SISSIES that have been heading (destroying) it under Obama!!
General Mattis is a tough talking retired Marine Corp General who famously led the US invasion of Iraq back in 2003. You might recall that under the leadership of “Mad Dog” Mattis US forces trekked across Iraq virtually unopposed and very quickly right into the heart of Baghdad. Mattis was leading, at that time, the 1st Marine Corp Division. Mattis is well known for his tough talking style and for his reputation among his fellow generals as a “blunt military strategist.”
Back in San Diego in 2005 Gen. Mattis during a panel discussion let it be known that he enjoyed brawling and “killing the enemy in war.” Mattis is also the former commander of the US Central Command which covers the Mid East region and when it comes to that rogue state led by crazed Ayatollah’s called Iran, Mattis is considered a hardliner. In fact, when it comes to Iran, Mattis is said to have a rather confrontational tone which, of course, the Obama Administration frowned upon. That would be because the Obama Administration does not like strong will SOLDIERS but prefers SISSY soldiers instead that are weak-willed, coware, and simply do what they are told by the politicians.
Mattis is, indeed, rather outspoken when it comes to Iran and a few other rogue (read KNOWN terrorist sponsoring) nations. He once made the accusation that Iran’s top leadership was involved in an assassination plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US at a restaurant in Washington DC.
Mattis was born in 1950 and has received the Bronze Star Medal and the Legion of Merit medal. He was Supreme Allied Commander from 2007-2009 until Obama got rid of him. He is known for his stance on Iran’s nuclear development which he strongly and loudly opposes. Some of his colleagues consider him a “Warrior Monk” meaning he ponders deeply military strategy and is famous for telling Marines that the most important 6 inches on the battlefield is between their ears!
Mattis’ appointment will have to be confirmed by the Senate. He has been retired for 3 years and would need to waiver from the Senate from a 1947 law that stipulates a 7 year waiting period before such appointments. However, both the Senate and House will be dominated by Republican come January and his confirmation is highly likely.
One of the things I have opposed is the Obama Administration’s getting rid of seasoned generals and replacing them with weak-willed pawns! As far as I’m concerned Obama has done everything he can to weaken the US Military! Hopefully, Mattis can and will change all that. We need to take a hard line with Iran and some other nations because these nations are growingly DANGEROUS! Iran has said more than once that when it develops nukes they are going to take Israel off the face of the map and I have no doubt they will at least try to do just that. In that even we CANNOT have someone leading the Pentagon or White House that is an indecisive and gutless coward. Iran is going to have to be dealt with one way or the other period! Better sooner than later in my thinking.
Personally, I think Trump has made a good pick in Mattis. SCORE = 1. Now we’ll see whom he picks of the other cabinet positions.
