How Paul Ryan's secret tax break is linked to Trump's pipeline support and will rob every American blind.

In the beginning of the Obama Administration, there was a retreat from what Sarah Palin called “that hopey-changing thing” into a continuation and expansion of Bush era policies and norms. Bush's extraordinary rendition became Obama's normal drone strike, a weekly chore done on “Terror Tuesday.” As the revolving door spins at the entrance to the Oval office, Obama's tenure set the cornerstone of Trump's energy and economic policy.

 

Why is the North Dakota National Guard Pointing Missiles at Horses?

Despite calls from the lame duck Obama administration for “review” and “discussion” the construction of the oil pipeline by Energy Transfer Partners continues at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. The brutality against protestor including rubber bullets, fire hoses in sub freezing weather and torture of prisoners also continues.

 

Neo-Nazis from Worthington Organize Progrom in Montana while Ohio business lines up to make a profit

Given a few decades even Neo-Nazis can learn branding. Just as Trump has re-branded himself from Howard Stern's whipping boy to Twit-in-chief (tweeter-in-chief?) of the United States, the Neo-Nazi movement has re-branded itself as the “Alt-Right.” This makes their younger followers feel more hip than having to affect a 1920s clothing line or dancing around in their mother's curtains. Fascism in all countries has always sloppily combined an imagined mythic past with visions of an imagined mythic future while parroting endless lies about the present.

 

The Russians are not under the bed in Vermont either

The Washington Post announced it. The wire services ran with it. The Intercept failed the Washington Post on journalism 101. Newsweek tried to salvage the story. The fine details also give another drop of proof that a major news allegation that has been hyped for months is completely without merit. In short, the the claim that Russians had nefarious plan to hack the power grid of Vermont is false. The Mockingbird has checked under both Ben and Jerry's beds, and we found no bears, fancy, cozy or otherwise.

 

Clapper gives the least untruthful answer about the Russians and the election

The idea that Russian security services hacked the Democratic National Committee's emails and released them to Wikileaks in order to cause the election of Donald Trump has bounced off the walls of the beltway's echo chamber so many times it is as deafening as one would imagine the four trumpets in the book o

 

The Senate and the Democratic Party prepare to hand control of the press over to the national security establishment.

Still reeling rightward from their unexpected electoral college defeat, the Democratic Party leadership still struggles to find some force to blame other than their own candidates, positions and tepid token defense of the status quo. After searching the internet for the worst clickbait ever to call fake news (The fifth thing on their list will amaze you) they first enlisted the tech titans of Menlo Park to aid them in the first phase of their broad censorship initiative.

 

Leaked Photos show huge security flaw in Wisconsin voting system as recount opposition mounts

The battle to launch a recounts in three states by the Green Party lead by Jill Stein heated up today with a switch of court venues from state to federal court in Pennsylvania. President elect Trump was again sighted on twitter without adult supervision to call Stein a “Fraud.” The real focus of the recount effort may be better placed in Wisconsin.

 

Facebook using the fake news issue to institute Chinese style censorship in America

A very small sector of the media seems concerned about “fake news.” There seems to be little unified definition of it. The center right wing of the Democratic Party has taken up the banner of “fake news” as somehow being responsible for their narrow loss an election with the lowest voter turnout in two decades. A couple of days before Thanksgiving, while most of America was cooking and preparing to shop the Tech Titans of Silicon Valley began to implement their drive for outright censorship with Facebook leading the way.

 

Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton, Voting Machines and the Russians

On Wednesday Jill Stein successfully engaged the Wisconsin board of elections in a recount. The Green Party managed to raise the necessary funds to pay for this effort and have raised a total of $5.2 million so far to include Pennsylvania and Michigan. This is despite attacks from Donald Trump as well as liberal elements of the media.
