PizzaGate Is 100% Real, Why Is Media Lying?


PizzaGate is entirely real, which is perhaps why the massive mainstream media cover-up attempt - to label PizzaGate as a "fake news onslaught" (whatever that is) without reviewing ANY of the pertinent facts or Wikileaks emails - is so troubling for those of us with a moral compass. They're covering for a child trafficking and abuse ring operating in Washington, DC. That is not okay. None of this is okay.

Trump Fills the Swamp With Steven Mnuchin (Warning to Trump Supporters)


Trump has named Steven Mnuchin as his Treasury Secretary. So who is Mnuchin, and what does his background tell us about his ideology and what kind of administration Trump is assembling? Today we talk to Michael Krieger of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com about Mnuchin's career, his Goldman Sachs and Soros ties, and his shady business practices, as well as the other people being appointed to helm the Trump White House.



The people Trump is appointing will look to retain the existing banking system without causing too much damage to these bloodsuckers' positions. The biggest issue is that of diminishing the US Government debt and returning manufacturing and other jobs to the country.

The information here is NOT a good indicator for ordinary people. Trump needs to stop these sorts of people from preying upon ordinary people and siphoning wealth to the top of the pyramid. During the financial crisis, while people lost their homes and jobs, the elite because wealthier.

The only 'saving grace' is that this corrupt business model is not good for Trump's hotel and real estate businesses so we might see some agreement about reversing some of what has happened.

If the elite keep playing their existing game then eventually the people (filled with knowledge gained from the Internet) will come after them in a revolutionary action.

#PizzaGate Hasn't Been Disproven By ANYONE Credible, Which Is Troubling


PizzaGate has not been disproven yet, nor publicly discredited, by a single credible expert in the national security or law enforcement world - or in any field, for that matter - which is troubling. Mainstream media dismissals of PizzaGate have weirdly relied on hearsay, assumption, unnamed editorials and outright misrepresentation of the data researchers have been combing through. Isn't the media supposed to LOVE a good controversy? Who are they covering for here?

Trump Destroys Leftists In Swing State Recount Attempted COUP


Infowars Nightly News Director Rob Dew (@DewsNewz) covers the latest news in the Jill Steins effort to unseat Donald Trump in her fever dream recount effort.



[Posted at the SpookyWeather blog, December 8th, 2016.]

DO NOT BE FOOLED. THE MSM LIED. JILL DID NOT DROP THE RECOUNT.


The entire election steal process summarized:

1. ONLYafter Jill Stein was denied a recount in Pennsylvania, there were suddenly (miraculously) 25,000 plus votes found for Hillary, while only 3,000 were found for Trump. I initially said zero were found for Trump, but what is the difference when the theft is this clear anyway? This disparity has been proven to be because of ballot forgeries, where new ballots are filled in in place of the original ballots people cast to keep the count the same and conceal election rigging. This is explained very well HERE, where Investment watch blasted a home run of truth out of the park. People are saying it's over, Trump won, BUT THERE ARE 70 PRECINCTS THE EXACT SAME THING IS HAPPENING IN NOW THAT HAVE NOT REPORTED, AND WHEN THEY DO, IT WILL BE GONE BECAUSE NO ONE IS WORKING TO STOP THE STEAL.

People just look at the election results page saying oh, it's at 100 percent. Done deal. NOPE. THAT PAGE IS A LIE. I have been able to mathematically tabulate how much the election steal team is able to accomplish with forged ballots, and predict they will announce an additional 12,000 vote Hillary gain late on Monday Dec 5th or early on Tuesday, Dec 6. The entire steal will be complete on Dec 13. I hope I am wrong, but believe it is an accurately calculated certainty, just like I nailed Jillary's donation bot with provable precision. That bot got shut off 8 hours after I proved what it was.

2. As I said right from second one when Jillary "canceled" the lawsuit in Pennsylvania, it was not over the way the MSM lied and said it was, she is going to continue to steal the election via both HIGHER federal courts, and LOWER county courts. This is now confirmed and should be big news today (Monday) when she files. Complacency trolls are out in army force trying to get the Trump community to go to sleep believing it cannot be stolen, when it is being stolen right in front of them, and the steal will be accomplished if they do nothing. When ballot forgeries alone hit the half percent threshold, which should happen today or tomorrow, a recount will be automatic and they absolutely WILL flip it to Hillary.

3. A lawsuit to trip a recount in Florida has been filed now even though it is not possible to call for a recount this late, but the system is so corrupt who knows what will happen. This is only being done because the Wisconsin steal is not going well, and the Michigan steal is uncertain. In that case, they will need to have a 4th state stolen.

4. Hillary got busted completely for stealing the election in Nevada, yet due to the fact the system is paralyzed by corruption the MSM is totally silent. A sting was done in Nevada, where 17,000 confirmation mails were sent to the addresses and names of registered voters in Nevada, and 9,000 of them were returned as "undeliverable" because their addresses did not exist or the people were fictional. When the 9,000 that were returned were investigated, a sample of 200 were pulled for a ground investigation, and 185 of that 200 were confirmed fake by a secondary ground investigation. This proves that approximately half the votes cast in Nevada were fake, and THAT is how Hillary won. I know Nevada, I have been to Nevada at least 300 times and can solidly state, just from having eyes and ears while being there that NO ONE LIVING voted for Hillary, NOT ONE SOUL AT ALL. That state hates her guts.
TOLD YOU SO! THE MSM LIED. Another AP report confirms Jill Stein will now file at both the Federal and County level while dems destroy old ballots, re-fill them out in the names of people who voted and CAST THEM AGAIN.

Just like I said - they are NOT GIVING UP. They want the election stolen at ALL COSTS, including fat paychecks to people willing to risk their skin forging ballots. They can't stuff new ones but they can destroy old ones and re-write them so they go to Hillary instead and that is EXACTLY what they are doing, this is well explained on this page in the links.

Pennsylvania is GOING DOWN, there is a very good reason why votes keep trickling in and swinging it to Hillary.

Trolls are writing saying I'm full of it and just fear mongering and that I should "eat crow" after Jill lost at the state level today. Not so, and that's too bad, she's taking it to a whole new level now.

DO NOT BE FOOLED. THE MSM LIED. JILL DID NOT DROP THE RECOUNT.

Everything I mention in this update is fully documented with links in the page below, and I mean DOCUMENTED to the last letter.

Jill will now continue the recount effort by suing every single major precinct. The MSM LIED AS USUAL. First of all, they are not covering any of the recount issues well at all - many people do not even know it is going on. Now, they are lying about Pennsylvania.
THIS IS THE NEW STRATEGY:

1. CONTINUE FORGING BALLOTS IN PENNSYLVANIA (where they are replacing genuine ballots with forgeries) until they have enough forgeries to either flip it to hillary or force a recount. This is exactly how they mysteriously came up with over 25,000 more ballots for Hillary and shrunk Trump's lead to 49,000. They came up with an initial 22,000 on Friday and were able to forge an additional 4,000 today. At this rate, they will trip a recount in 3 more days, and steal it entirely in 12 days. And you can watch it happen on Pennsylvania's own vote tabulation web site. The media is lying and saying the vote tabulation is done, all the while you can still see them creep in on Pennsylvania's official web site. The MSM has got to know this, and they are lying about it for a reason. The official web site makes it very clear: The posted results are NOT OFFICIAL because it is still ongoing as of two hours before Dec 4.

2. CONTINUE THE RECOUNT EFFORT AT A PRECINCT LEVEL RATHER THAN A STATE LEVEL in the hopes of flipping enough to Hillary to either hand it to her outright, or trigger a recount. These two methods in conjunction with each other, are extremely likely to flip it if people sit on the couch and let it happen.

I AM NOT CLICK BAITING OR TRYING TO SCARE PEOPLE, I AM SAYING IT LIKE IT IS. For some reason Pennsylvania STILL has precincts with "uncounted" ballots ALMOST A MONTH after the election. This is ONLY because team hillary has people forging ballots until the election is flipped. IF PEOPLE GO TO SLEEP AND LET THIS SLIDE, IT WILL BE FLIPPED.

Look people, I am NOT MAKING THIS STUFF UP. I have all the links and proof this is going on. I am not quoting joe blow or fake news, I am quoting AP directly and proving it is NOT OVER by showing you plain as day on Pennsylvania's own election tallying state web site that is showing the slip to oblivion with updates every three minutes. THEY ARE STEALING THIS, AND YOU CAN WATCH IT PROGRESS HERE The actual page date is at the bottom of the page, the date at the top of the page was put there on election day.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All precincts were shown as "reporting" and the graph has shown 100% for weeks now and did within a couple days of the election. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE COUNT IS DONE, I HAVE CONFIRMED THAT EVEN NOW, SATURDAY EVENING, THEY HAVE NOT RETURNED ALL VOTES (obviously because in the big precincts they are STILL FORGING BALLOTS.

I am not alone in saying the recount is not over, other credible web sites are saying the same thing! THE MSM WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE IT IS OVER SO YOU GO HOME, GO TO BED, AND LET THEM STEAL IT IN PEACE.

ELECTION STEALING METHOD IN PENNSYLVANIA REVEALED. SEE THIS. Now we know how Hillary started smashing Trump at the end!

While You Were Distracted By The US Election, The Senate Outlawed GMO Labeling Nationwide


While attention was diverted to the US election for much of this year, the Senate quietly made null and void state laws that require that GMO foods be labeled.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are a concern for a number of reasons. When consumed, GMOs have been shown to cause gastrointestinal problems, increase cancer risk, and even silence human genes, not to mention their harmful effects on the environment and endangered species such as bees. Within the US, there is also a dearth of safety testing as most tests that show that GMOs are “safe” are short-term studies, lasting only a matter of months. Longer-term studies, even those conducted for just a few months longer than industry-funded studies, have found that the consumption of GMOs causes serious problems, such as an increase in tumor risk. For those US consumers who are rightly concerned about the presence of GMOs in their food, mandatory GMO labeling is one solution that gives consumers the right to know what is in their food while not affecting the GMO food purchases of those who support biotechnology. A handful of US states have successfully passed GMO labeling laws such as Connecticut, Maine, and Vermont. Similar initiatives in other states, like California, only failed due to the massive amounts of money funneled to the opposition by Industrial Agriculture and Food companies as well as the corporations who create GMO seeds and associated agrochemicals, such as Monsanto.

Some Congressmen, however, have been working to undermine the ability of individual states to determine how they label GMOs in recent years. First, Representative Steve King (R-IA) tried several times to introduce the Protect Interstate Commerce Act, which would allow states without labeling laws to sell unlabeled products in states that do. However, the measure was never voted upon. Then, HR 1599, also known as the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015,” was introduced, which despite its pleasant-sounding name, would make GMO labeling “voluntary” nationwide and would essentially make the mandatory labeling laws of several states null and void. The measure was authored by Representative Mike Pompeo (R-KS), who President-Elect Trump has chosen to lead the CIA. However, the bill passed the house, but not the senate, keeping GMO labeling laws on the books for the time being.

Not to be stopped by Congressional interference, the agriculture and food corporations soon sought other means to undermine state labeling laws once and for all. While most Americans were distracted by the constant upheavals during the most recent US election as well as geopolitical events such as Brexit, the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry quietly “struck a deal” known as the “bipartisan agriculture biotechnology compromise solution.” Beyond its newspeak title, the text of the legislation makes it clear that this “compromise” effectively bans all GMO labeling laws passed by states. However, it goes even farther. This bill declares that no foods shall be labeled as containing GMOs for two years. After this two year moratorium on labeling, the USDA will then create a national rule for a scannable QR code on labels which would say whether or not the product is GMO. However, QR codes are only readable by smartphones, leaving those without expensive cell phones unable to read the labels. More disturbing still, it gives the USDA the right to declare foods non-GMO if less than 50% of its content is bio-engineered. It also would not require animal products derived from animals fed GMO grains to be considered bio-engineered either.

A Letter to a MSM Journalist about the Election of Trump and the 'Post-Truth World'


I just read your recent article about how facts are dead in a post-truth world. It seems you have bought into the bogus idea (via the Oxford Dictionary definition you cited) that "objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief" (this is only somewhat true).

That you applied this thinking to the Trump win (that some of us predicted, with caveats) shows you are out of touch with the key facts that led to his victory.

I wrote in February 2016, while Trump was knocking off the other Republican candidates, that people would vote for him because of certain fundamental truths he was addressing: that the US economy was wrecked and this was caused by massive outsourcing, that the real unemployment rate was actually closer to 20%, that there was a real issue with this economic situation and having an open border with Mexico, and that many people appreciated his gung ho demeanor.

He was speaking the truth against a mainstream media narrative that was telling people that things were essentially okay.

The problem with the MSM coverage is that it did not actually hold truth to power and vilified Trump at every turn. Many voters rejected the media spin on the election and were more interested in Trump's grasp of reality in terms of the US economic situation. It reminded me of the Bill Clinton campaign and the phrase "It's the economy, stupid."

It really didn't matter what outrageous things Trump said, people voted for real change because of the economy. This is why people were also voting for Bernie Sanders. (He only lost against Hillary due to the superdelegate system and DNC vote fraud).

The reason MSM journalists are not trusted is because the online media told the truth of what was going on while the corporate media acted to gloss over real crimes. Ordinary people had direct assess to REAL information and access to Trump's speeches. They could judge his real meaning for themselves over the edited MSM soundbites. Alt and social media working together pointed out the distortions and focused on fundamental issues.

Trump was right that Hillary should have been in jail (for mishandling classified information), and he was right when he called out Jeb Bush and the neocons for launching the invasion of Iraq through deliberate lies about WMDs. He was also right about Obama and Hillary supporting ISIS in the Middle East (a 2012 DIA report stated that "The West, Gulf Countries and Turkey" were supporting the Syrian opposition where the lead groups were Salafists, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI - at a time when the US Admin was saying the lead groups were 'moderate rebels'.)

As for the women accusing Trump of sexual assault. A number of the women cited came out and supported Trump and said they had been misquoted, while other claims were shown to be false (the airline groping, the ex-Apprentence contestant etc). He also defended the 'fat' Miss Universe winner, when the MSM recently said he insulted her, at the time when the media had been on her case for putting on weight. The sexual assult accusations looked like the 2016 version of John Kerry's swiftboating. Well researched journalists would have pointed this out (and did online).

Yes Trump has a crass mouth, but that does not make him guilty of the accusations levelled against him. Real researchers know the truth about who Trump is and FAIRLY reported about him during the election.

The 'fake news' meme, that you have bought into, is simply a slur pushed against independent online media to discourage people from finding real analysis on the big issues. The fake news is actually the MSM.

My Facebook wall is public and I invite you to be friends with myself as a window into the alternative media.

A number of my letters to the ABC appear on my (undisclosed for now) blog and also at a friend's blog called Trump is Right.

Here is a post from Feb 18 called: Hillary Clinton is a Crook - This is Why People Won't Vote for Her (A Letter to ABC's 7:30 Program)

http://trumpisright.blogspot.com.au/2016/02/hillary-clinton-is-crook-this-is-why.html

Please note, I am trying to help you by offering a broader perspective on the election (and also global events). Try not to be offended.

ps. Your Fact Check program on the ABC didn't do a good job, neither did Planet America. I tried to help with my letter writing but was seemingly ignored.

Washington Post Just Blew The Lid On #PizzaGate Big League


If you thought PizzaGate had run its course, think again: Is the Washington Post just a phenomenally biased, poorly run newspaper, or is it some kind of ingenious meta-media troll? In a curious article published earlier this afternoon, the Post has now put into the public record much of the correct details on the origins of PizzaGate, as they explained succinctly what PizzaGate actually is, and the basis for belief in its need to be further investigated by authorities.

The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs — Paul Craig Roberts


“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell
 
Dear Friends, This is my quarterly request for donations. As you know, this is your site. It will stay up as long as you support it. [Donate to Paul Craig Roberts at the link if you can.]

The ruling oligarchy and their presstitute media have become desperate now that they are losing control over explanations and Americans’ minds. Thus, they charge independent Internet journalists such as myself with being Russian agents peddling fake news. Recent legislation in the House of Representatives, the list of 200 alleged Russian agents, and the attacks on president-elect Trump from within the US intelligence community make it clear that pressures on truthtellers are increasing. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/12/03/is-the-us-government-behind-the-fake-news-media-attacks-on-president-elect-trump/
 
Internet sites that have comment sections make it easy for trolls to earn their blood money by slandering and misrepresenting truthtellers, thus aiding the oligarchs in their attack on truth.
I have certainly got the oligarchs attention. I am sure that you are as proud as I am that www.paulcraigroberts.org is on the oligarchy’s list of enemies. If I had to bet, I would bet that the 200 list of the oligarchy’s enemies was prepared with money from the CIA (US tax dollars or drug money), the National Endowment for Democracy (US tax dollars), and George Soros (money stolen from the British people in currency manipulation).
 
One reader wrote to me that like Thor in the old Norse mythology we have moved the universe. I read the other day a report that more Americans distrusted than trusted the presstitute media. Perhaps the era of fooling deceived Americans is coming to an end. Clearly the ruling oligarchy is concerned that the websites on the 200 List now control the explanations although not the levers of power. Nevertheless, if the pen is more powerful than the sword, power will return to the people as we continue to deliver truth to them.

This website that your insistance created has 400,000 readers, and my columns are reproduced on scores of other websites in the US and abroad, translated into many languages including Chinese, Russian, and German. One person wrote to me that my columns are regularly posted on 17 websites on the 200 List. All of this is a free service, so you can take satisfaction that your financial support is affecting the world view of millions of peoples.

The list of the oligarchy’s enemies has created problems for the trolls who describe me in comment sections as a Reaganite tool of the oligarchy. As it is not possible to be both an enemy of the oligarchy and a tool of the oligarchy, I suppose the trolls will now have to say that my inclusion on the enemies list is protective deep cover.

As the old saying goes, those who spin webs of deceit get caught up in them, and that is where the American oligarchy and their presstitutes are, caught up in a web of lies.

The fight is far from over. Now that the ruling oligarchy understands their danger, things will get very dicey. Please respond to my quarterly call for your support. Serving your need for reliable information brings me powerful enemies.

My thanks to the many readers who expressed their wishes that I would be Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury and to Rahul Manchanda for his tribute in Veterans News Now. http://www.veteransnewsnow.com/2016/11/28/dr-paul-craig-roberts-is-a-former-treasury-secretary-who-actually-cares/ 
 
The oligarchy did not lose the election by a large enough margin for me to be confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury. I would bring into the Treasury people like Michael Hudson, James Galbraith, Herman Daly, Pam Martens, Nomi Prins. I would put Dave Kranzler in charge of financial regulation and have him break up the Fed’s rigging of the bullion market. Ellen Brown’s campaign for public banks would be given impetus. The issue of abolishing the Federal Reserve and bringing the power back into the Treasury would be examined.
 
The American electorate gave too much support to the oligarchy’s candidate for such major changes to be possible. The American people have some more waking up to do. Major change requires a runaway electoral victory for the American people, the equivalent of a revolution.
 
If Trump proves to be sincere, let’s support him on the main issues and build momentum for the future.

SR 1379 – Italian Prime Minister Resigns Over Anti-EU Vote


Despite anti-European Union populists loosing a narrow vote in Austria yesterday, they won a much more important victory in Italy.
Italian populists went to the polls yesterday and turned down a referendum to change the Italian Constitution that would have strengthened the European Union’s hold over Europe’s 5th largest economy. The measure wasn’t just defeated, it was rejected in a huge 59-41 landslide.
As he had promised to do if the referendum was defeated, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi resigned within hours of the polls closing and the size of the “No” landslide became clear.
The resignation will pave the way for anti-EU parties in Italy who will soon call for early elections, and will most likely lead to an Italian vote to leave the EU, just as the British did last June.
The result will also boost other anti-EU parties prepping for already-scheduled elections in the coming year in France, the Netherlands, and Germany, that may doom the floundering European experiment in erasing national boundaries.
The vote could also push several large Italian banks over into some version of bankruptcy as Italy’s national debt hits 136% of gross domestic product – second only to Greece among European nations, and forth highest in the world.
