The War of the Narratives – “Fighting for its very life, the Resistance rolls out a last-ditch flanking maneuver today in its three-year war against reality as Rep. Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee presents findings to Rep. Nadler’s Judiciary Committee for crimes as yet unspecified against Mr. Trump, possibly as grave as treason. Buyer beware. The Resistance always accuses its enemy of the very acts it commits” – James Howard Kunstler
Lindsey Graham does not want Schiff or other congressmen to testify at Senate impeachment trial – “Something does not smell right.” – Thomas Lifson – AGREE COMPLETELY. I DON’T THINK LINDSEY GRAHAM SHOULD BE TRUSTED!!!!
Score One for Tulsi – “Kamala Harris’s decision to drop out of the Democratic race is a victory for another candidate who supposedly has no chance of winning and shouldn’t even be on the same stage with the real contenders. But Tulsi Gabbard’s demolition job on poor Kamala shows why a well-aimed ideological thrust is more important than any number of silly opinion polls telling experts what they want to hear.” – Daniel Lazare
Nader, Khawaja, Clintons, Pope Francis, and Elite Converge in UAE & Africa – Corey Lynn – EXCELLENT INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gee, Where’s The Reporting On This? – “Earlier today, an indictment was unsealed against the CEO of an online payment processing company, and seven others, charging them with conspiring to make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions, and related offenses, during the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and thereafter. Who were they making contributions to? Hillary Clinton. $3.5 million worth. Note that her name, or the name of the campaign, was not disclosed. Note also that Nader is in federal custody on child pornography and child sexual exploitation charges.” – Karl Denninger
Obama gave Common Core contract to publisher, got $65-million book deal in return? – “As far-left Democrats yell about bribery and high crimes and misdemeanors, let’s turn to their own side of the aisle, starting with the once penniless President Obama, who left public office a very, very rich man.” – Monica Showalter
Elizabeth Warren’s “Foreign Policy” – ” I read Elizabeth Warren’s piece in the Guardian today, which made me wonder if she’s for real, if she is really as ignorant as she appears to be when it comes to foreign policy, to Russia, to Trump and to NATO. It would seem that she is, and that makes her a hazard. Not that I see her as a serious candidate, mind you, but then again, I do not see any other one either.” – Raúl Ilargi Meijer
13 Things To Look For In The Inspector General FISA Abuse Report – Margot Cleveland – MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SHAM IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AUX ARMES, CITOYENS! THE AMERICANS ATTACK – “France’s President Emmanuel Macron called today’s NATO brain dead, invoking the ire of Trump. What Macron meant was that the alliance has no coherent strategy or world view. The US wants to use NATO as a Europe-based police force to support its imperial operations in the Mideast, Africa and, most lately, against China. And, yes, many Europeans don’t want to pay the price for real military power. Who cares about squalid little wars in the Mideast, Africa and West Asia? There’s no way Europe will get into a military confrontation with China over two-by-nothing islets no one has ever even heard of.” – Eric Margolis
Target… Iran ! – “Approximately 14,000 more troops will elevate the overall US total in the Middle East and Eurasia to about 74,000. Not so covert, and making no bones about the re-direction in US State policy, on December 5th the United States did indeed announce its true goal in the Middle East is to confront Iran.” – Steve Brown
Illinois, the King of Food Stamp Waiver Abuse – “Trump has decided to enforce food stamp rules, everywhere, not Just Illinois. But Illinois provides the lesson. The Administration’s new rule impacts able-bodied adults between 18-49 years old who do not have dependents. In order to qualify for SNAP benefits, adults in this category have had benefits capped at three months within a 36-month span, unless they provide sufficient proof of at least 20 hours of work per week. Mercy! What changed? Nothing. It’s been this way since 1996.Trump merely decided to enforce the rules.” – Mish
The Short Road: Democracy to Fascism – “A fascist government actively suppresses any objection to its ideology and typically will crush any movement which opposes it. In keeping with their belligerent nature, fascist governments generally view violence and war as stimulants to national spirit and vitality.” – Larry Romanoff
Planning Your Escape – Part 5 -JMD – LAST PART OF A GOOD SERIES OF ARTICLES!!!!
The Taxonomy of Collapse – “The higher up the wealth-power pyramid the observer is, the more prone they are to a magical-thinking belief that the empire is forever, even as it is crumbling around them” – Charles Hugh Smith
How The Democrats & Federal Reserve Ensured Trump’s Re-Election – “Trump is truly an evil genius…Dem’s are truly self serving dolts…and the Fed is truly the best central bank money can buy. Or the Fed is the evil genius, Dem’s still self serving dolts, and Trump is the best president money can buy. Either way, Trump, the Democrats, Republicans, and the ultra-wealthy are laughing all the way to the bank. And the vast majority of Americans have been sold into debt slavery.” – Econimica
