Trump has seemed to back away from the campaign promises most important to his supporters; but he rapidly fired lobbyists, once he was criticized for running off track, and fired the captain of the team who put them there. Trump is an enigma. Is he a trojan horse to his true supporters, or is he forming a stealth plan to confuse his enemies?

Is The US Government Behind The Fake News Media Attacks On President-Elect Trump?

If this bill becomes law, it can be used to discredit and destroy truthtellers as agents of foreign intelligence. In other words, the message is: if you dispute our lies you are a foreign agent and subject to arrest or elimination. This is the state of democracy in America today. More than any other country, the United States needs to be liberated.

The Orwellian War On Skepticism

Under the cover of battling “fake news,” the mainstream U.S. news media and officialdom are taking aim at journalistic skepticism when it is directed at the pronouncements of the U.S. government and its allies.

Glenn Greenwald Condemns Washington Post's "Cowardly Group Of Anonymous Smear Artists"

"...this group of ostensible experts far more resembles amateur peddlers of primitive, shallow propagandistic clichés than serious, substantive analysis and expertise; and is engaging in extremely dubious McCarthyite tactics about a wide range of critics and dissenters... WaPo should be very proud: it staked a major part of its news story on the unverified, untestable assertions of this laughable organization."

"A Million Dollars Ain't Worth What It Used To Be..."

In today’s world, reaching the magical “millionaire” mark of a $1 million net worth is less meaningful than it used to be. In fact, roughly 9% of households in the United States have “millionaires” living in them – this is a record amount, caused partially through the devaluation of currency over time.

When It Comes To Fake News, The U.S. Government Is The Biggest Culprit

There’s the garden variety fake news that is not really “news” so much as it is titillating, tabloid-worthy material peddled by anyone with a Twitter account, a Facebook page and an active imagination. Anyone with an ounce of sense and access to the Internet should be able to ferret out the truth and lies in these stories with some basic research. Then there’s the more devious kind of news stories circulated by one of the biggest propagators of fake news: the U.S. government.

Why They Keep Trade Deals Secret

Thousands of people recently demonstrated in Brussels against free trade deals negotiated by the EU. This happened just days before a meeting of EU trade ministers in Bratislava last month, which was considered the last push to salvage the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and the United States. Not only is Europe divided on the deal, but the talks have been extremely secretive.

Brace Yourself For The Quadrillion-Dollar Reckoning

"...debt is simply everywhere, at least to the extent we can see and measure it. Corporate and sovereign debt, of both the developed world and emerging market varieties, are at record levels. China’s debts certainly add to that record but who really knows to what extent? It’s the ultimate black box of leverage on Planet Earth... You cannot NOT worry about the Fed in this world...The simple truth is ending reinvestment would bring the bond market to its knees.

Meanwhile, The Democrats Are Getting Worried

Given that Donald Trump is the 'devil incarnate' if one listens to any of the Clinton surrogates, Democrats are growing more and more concerned as Hillary's 'insurmountable' lead has collapsed to its lowest since the conventions. With her campaign reportedly warning media to 'tread carefully' on health concerns, The Hill reports anxious Democratic senators are urging Clinton to "be more open, show your soul, focus on the economy and talk about blue-collar jobs."
