Fake News In The Age Of Fake

On January 23, 2009 we dubbed the Obama years “The Age of Fake”:

The age of contempt for experience and adoration of fake change and fake hope, exemplified by Barack Obama, is here.

The fake hope and the fake change are poses struck by a fake Democrat and fake president. The age of fake was introduced by the fake music that was played at the fake inaugural with its fake oath.

Today is day 3 of the age of fake.

In 2008 flim-flam con man Barack Obama had zero achievements other than self-advancement. In the Age of Fake that made Obama king of the fake hill. It was all fake. Eight years later the Age of Fake continues to fake. Over the years we wrote over thirty articles chronicling the Age of Fake. Back then we thought Hillary Clinton was “genuine” compared to Barack Obama. But either due to political calculation or dementia Hillary Clinton has embraced the fake.

This week Hillary Clinton attacked “fake news”.


Hillary is rather late to the party. Barack Obama and the entire “Hope and Change” scam was a fake. It was false hope and chump change.

Why would Hillary Clinton denounce “fake news” in December 2016 when she herself and Bill Clinton in 2012 generated tons of fake news with their lies about how wonderful Barack Obama was? It’s all about political calculation mixed in with dementia. The calculation is that the leftist dopes that believed the fake news that declared Hillary Clinton the sure winner in a massive landslide need to be comforted with a comfortable fake news lie. The dementia is displayed in thinking that more fake news can ameliorate the harsh reality of their future.

Hillary Clinton and the left want to comfort themselves with the fake news that fake news is what destroyed Hillary2016. Hillary Clinton, the left, the Obama Dimocrats, and Hillary2016 will try to create the fake news lie that Donald J. Trump is President-Elect because of the Russians, hacking, Comey, and assorted other fantasy villains. But what really happened?

Why did Donald J. Trump win? Over and over and over this election season we wrote this was a change election and the candidate of change would win. We wrote that in January 25 of this year. We wrote that when Trump was up in the polls, we wrote that when Trump was down in the polls and attacked by Paul Ryan:

. . .Donald J. Trump will win. Why? Because it’s a change election. That’s all you need to know.

We wrote that over and over. “It’s a change election, that’s all you need to know.” Today Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report answers the question “How Trump Broke the Blue Wall”:

The exit polls also show that Trump’s success in these three states was about more than voter frustration with the state of the economy. In fact, Hillary Clinton did better among those who said the economy was “the most important issue facing the country,” than Obama did four years earlier. But, among those who said they wanted to see a president who “can bring change,” Trump crushed Clinton by 68-72 points.

It was a change election. That’s all you need to know.

But Hillary Clinton and the leftist loons need to believe it was something else. Why? Because the fake news allowed them to believe that Hillary2016 was going to win. The dispute among those who believed the fake news was between those who believed Hillary2016 was going to win in a landslide and those who believed Hillary2016 was going to win in a super-duper-landslide.



Landslide or super-duper-landslide led to broken heads as Hillary2016 delusion met Trump’s wall of reality:

Unhinged, psychotic, infantile, Hillary Clinton supporters are unable to work, crying, bereft of the will to go on with their pathetic lives because of the shock and surprise [???] of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 elections. Just how stupid are these people? Hillary Clinton deserved to lose and it was obvious she was going to lose – as we charged repeatedly since at least 2013, because Hillary Clinton ran the dumbest, stupidest, campaign for president we have ever seen. Get that through your thick, whimpering, whiny, heads. Hillary2016 was the dumbest, stupidest, campaign we have ever seen. We call forth the witnesses for the prosecution, Bill Clinton, Trump hater Kurt Eichenwald, Mark Penn, and everyone with a mature brain that functions.

As the hapless children, of all ages up to and including 80 year olds, take to the streets in a further demonstration of impotence – we laugh. Just how stupid are these people? Don’t they additionally realize their public displays of infantile caterwauling stupidity help President-elect Donald J. Trump? The Hillary Clinton mopes and dopes who curse the stars and fates as if that would change the election results, prove over and over how stupid and infantile they are.

The wall of reality led to tears and shock at Clinton’s election night party. They never saw the wall of reality until it was too late and the heads smashed.

Donald J. Trump pronounced death sentences on Big Media and the strategy by which Republicans lost Pennsylvania. Trump did that because he was the candidate of change in a change election and that is all you need to know.

The response from Hillary2016, Barack Obama, and the rest of the mooks, is that “fake news” was to blame for the election loss. That’s why Obama is busy with presidential pardons, appointments to boards, rule making in the authoritarian agencies of government in an attempt to forestall the TrumpNado about to strike the swamp of Washington, D.C.

It’s a bit juvenile to cite examples of fake news such as a video caused Benghazi, great ObamaCare, the good Obama economy, climate change wealth redistribution, rampant racism, defeat by misogyny, shovel ready stimulus, uniter Obama, fashionable Michelle, coalition of the ascendant, hands up don’t shoot, keep your doctor, bend the cost curve down, Solyndra, debt/deficit, unemployment rates, and other instances proving the Obama years are the Age of Fake. No need to beat that dead donkey. If anything those examples must be used as warning guides to the future.

The Obama Dimocrats and the left, alongside Hillary Clinton unfortunately want to remain in the past. Trump is busy with the future.

The “tweets” Big Media is so upset about? Tweets are Donald J. Trump’s version of FDR’s fireside chats. FDR used the dominant media of the day, radio, to communicate with Americans. Trump uses the internet and “tweets”. Trump today campaigns in Louisiana to elect yet another Republican (John Kennedy!) to join the Republican majority in the senate. President-Elect Donald J. Trump is reality based.

The fake news? The fake news is Russian hacks, electoral college hacks, recount hacks.

The real news? The 2016 election was a change election. The candidate of change won. That’s all you need to know.

  1. Fake news: recounts will change the election results.

  2. Yes Admin: the past eight years have been the age of fake.

    Better yet, the age of fraud.

    Here is a perfect case in point.

    http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/lobbyist-profiles/282411-banking-on-obama

    Robert Wolf of the former head of UBS, a Soros go between with Obama, was up to his fucking neck

    In manipulating the silver market on the world market in collusion with Deutsche Bank

    http://business.financialpost.com/news/fp-street/deutsche-bank-documents-alleged-to-show-smoking-gun-that-scotiabank-and-others-rigged-silver-prices

    As revealed in a suit filed by the excellent US Attorney for the Southern District of New York

    These dirty dirty dirty bankers are the godfathers of the BIG MEDIA BELOVED MESSIAH

    These are the same tactics we saw from Soros when he tanked the pound, costing working class families their retirement

    It is not enough to call these people vultures

    These people do what they do with malice aforethought

    If it were up to me, I would let ISIS have them.

    Couldn’t you just see these corrupt bankers on their knees with ISIS fighers looming over them with raised sword

    Screaming Allah Akbar–or just Keit Ellision.

  3. You notice Hillary is again wearing purple? Google Clintons and Soros launch America’s Purple Revolution. It is not a coincidence that both she and Bill were wearing purple the day after she lost the election and when she made her reappearance again today, she was wearing purple. A bunch of Soros funded groups are now hiring lawyers to help defend Republican electors who break their pledge to vote for Trump. It’s all over the internet. Hillary has not given up in trying to steal the Presidency.

  4. It will soon be over in PA too:

    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20161210_Philly_judge__Decison_coming_Monday_on_Stein_s_petition_for_statewide_recount.html

    A federal judge in Philadelphia will rule Monday on the Green Party-backed petition for a Pennsylvania recount, leaving just one day before the state needs to certify its presidential vote total for the electoral college.

    Judge Paul Diamond signaled his plan after a Friday afternoon hearing in which supporters of Green Party nominee Jill Stein pushed their bid for a recount, citing concerns about the integrity of Pennsylvania’s voting system and the technology it uses.

    State Republicans and lawyers for President-elect Donald Trump have derided the initiative as a waste of time and resources.

  5. It wasn’t just Bill Clinton:

    http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/09/one-man-in-hillarys-campaign-warned-she-could-lose-and-everybody-ignored-him/

    A major figure in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign warned she was in danger of losing the election days before the vote, but was ignored by the rest of her staff, a new write-up in Politico says. [snip]

    “Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s policy director—a brainy and nervous former State Department aide who took on an increasingly important political role as the campaign ground on—was the only one in Clinton’s inner circle who kept saying she would likely lose, despite the sanguine polling,” Thrush says, citing Sullivan’s friends. “He was also the only one of the dozen aides who dialed in for Clinton’s daily scheduling call who kept on asking if it wasn’t a good idea for her to spend more time in the Midwestern swing states in the closing days of the campaign.”

    But the rest of Clinton’s campaign ignored Sullivan, with his warnings being dismissed so quickly, they weren’t even substantively considered.

    They spent far more time debating whether or not Clinton should visit Texas and Arizona, two states they knew she had little chance of winning, in order to get good press,” Thrush says. Just a week before Election Day, Clinton made a campaign stop in Tempe, Arizona.

    The end result was that Clinton’s campaign went into the final days utterly convinced the race was in the bag and Trump had no shot.

    “On the Monday before Election Day, Clinton’s polling team assured the candidate that she would win, echoing the prediction of nearly every public poll and most of Trump’s own data,” Thrush says.

    In the end, though, Sullivan was vindicated entirely. Clinton’s “Blue Wall” in the Rust Belt crumbled, and she suffered shocking defeats in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin by a combined margin of less than 100,000 votes. Had she won all three, should would have been the president-elect. In the case of Wisconsin, she lost narrowly after not bothering to visit the state a single time during the general election campaign.

    Hillary2016, the stupidest campaign ever, ignored us too.

  6. Lou Dobbs is really upset about Rudi, he very much dislikes many of the picks and feels the RNC has control of Trump at this point.People over at CTH are upset also, and very upset that their Admin suggested Rudi had an alcohol problem.
    Not sure what is going on, but I have voiced my feeling about the whole thing with Rudi. Think about it, most of everyone that supported him, Christie, Rudi, Huckabee,Newt…no jobs

  7. Looks like Trump is putting together a team of sociopaths. The rise of the Corporation continues.

    No Rudy.

    No Huckabee.

    Where is Sister Sara?

  8. Why are all of you second guessing Trump again? Admin sure isn’t and neither am I. I have faith in him and until something shows me my faith is misplaced, I’m not going to try to guess the whys of what and who he is appointing.

  9. Yolanda
    December 9, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    Agreed. Can you imagine what we’d be witnessing today if the unimaginable had happened with an HRC win? A non-stop revolving door at Chappaqua of Obama/Hillary big donors, GGI payoffs, far left ideologues, identity pandering bullshit artists, media suck ups, etc.. All conducted under the cloak of secrecy. It would be a horror show.

    I have faith in DJT and so far his appointments are refreshing and action oriented. The old guard can step aside, or be run over.

  10. Who ever dreamed it would be like this?
    Overnight there was a CSPAN rerun of VP-Elect Mike Pence
    addressing The Heritage Foundation.
    regarding “Trump Administration Policy Agenda”
    at “Trump International Hotel DC”

  11. Those who were Hillary lovers who later became Hillary haters should know to put their faith in no person. She was never an angel and is not a devil, but rather favored one and then the other.

    Beware of Trump. And I say that as a supporter. The currently favored pics for the EPA and SOS are not excellent, they are hatchet men. And their predominant trait is sociopathy. That is the problem with the current crowd of elite who have made it to the top of that system. I guess that is the only type of talent that has been developed ofver the last several decades.

    Rex Tillerson is devoid of any respect for human rights. That is a requirement for the job as CEO of ExxonMobil. Do you want him for your SOS? Human rights for me and not for thee?

    I wrestled with these issues throughout my life. I seem to be able to achieve professional and financial success only at the sacrifice of my morals, values and principals. That is not true success. Any hack can behave like a monster and achieve goals. But can you do it and still maintain your humanity and respect for human rights? That is the true test. So far, Trump is not measuring up in his appointments. Sessions is the only one who is decent.

    OMG, that is like Sorfeld talking. I think when she “fell” they gave her a lobotomy and put her on mind control drugs. And the weird purple thing with Sorfeld. I think she has mentally divorced Bill and marries Sorfeld. I am going to think of her as Mrs. Sorfeld from here on out.

    Referring to Trump supporters as dogs answering a whistle. How nasty.

  13. To say that the RNC is controlling Trump at this point is ridiculous, even if Lou Dobbs says it. Like it or not, the RNC came through with the nation-wide ground game without which Trump would not have been elected; surely they deserve a say in at least some of the picks, don’t they?

    If Trump wants to get his agenda passed, he is going to have to deal with a partially-hostile congress that he basically ran against; he can’t do everything by executive order and he can’t replace elected congressmen at his will.

    Everything is a negotiation from now on if he wants to get anything done. If Rudi, Newt, Christie, and Palin aren’t getting cabinet positions, there is probably a good reason for it that we don’t know about. It’s inevitable that his supporters will disagree with some (or all) of his decisions from now on; however, Trump has gotten this far with a great team of advisors and I trust their judgement over the second-guessers.

  14. Mike,

    I like Rudi, obviously, don’t care the others did not get appointment actually, but Rudi has been my man for sometime, so yeah, I’m passed.
    And I like Lou Dobbs, always have,he may be over the top on this but, it is what it is..

    Brilliant.

    Just brilliant.

    Thanks Foxy.

    Someone said about opera, the things which are too foolish, too intimate, too whatever to come out and say

    You can write and perform an aria about, and they will throw roses at you

    Well, it can be that way with satire—good satire— not the John Daily or Saturday Night Live crap

    Which is grist for the high brow low brow poseurs of the left

    Because it serves to reinforce their arrogance and their self serving narrative

    Which his the golden handshake of the tribe—meaning the cultural village of which they hope to be a part

    But comic genius of the kind we saw in people like Johnathan Winters, Robbin Williams, Don Rickels, and Donald Trump

    If I may say so, this is the factor that sets Donald apart from all the other politicians of our era

    It is what attract huge crowds, and makes him eminently watchable

    To be clear however, he if far more than just a comic genius, far more

    He is a loyal American, a world class business man, and one of the finest negotiators this nation has produced

    If you think I am projecting, think about it

    The critical factor however is his comic genius, his ability to invoke it and the power of irony almost at will

    And to play so many roles in one scene

    I was asked to explain him to a skeptic who doubts his intellect

    I told her try thinking of it this way

    Try thinking of a chess master who walks around a chess tournament, playing everyone at ever table in the room–that’s him

    And then . . .

    Look at the other politicians on the scene

    They are scripted, dull as paint, focus group oriented, pets of their donors

    What a remarkable contest

    The funniest part however, and this video brings this to light

    Is how bureaucratic and rigid those in the media are

    In the world of comedy, they are the perfect shill

    In the world of politics, they are the perfect mark

    Predictable as hell, lacking in nuance, devoid of subtlety

    Wearing every one of their hot buttons, plus a sense of outrage on their sleeve

    Part of Donald’s genius, and part of the reason he loves doing this even more than building hotels

    Is pushing those buttons and watching their talentless heads explode

    Again, Foxy, thank you–you lifted my spirits with this video at the very moment they needed a little lifting

  16. Supposedly, DJT to attend Army Navy game today. Well, if he is there, you’d never know it. No mention so far from CBS. Nothing.

  17. lol

    Rex Tillerson (only in TX could kids grow up with that name & not get bullied!!🙂 That’s a complement folks.) & Mad Dog Mattis———–sound those 2 names. Hearing those sounds alone should make competitors think twice about trying to play games against the USA.

  18. gonzotx @ 3:03PM:

    Gonzo:

    I like Lou Dobbs also; in fact, his is the only television show that I watch at this point. I understand his and your disappointment about Rudy not getting SOS, as it’s nice to be able to reward loyalty. However, Trump’s loyalty should be mainly to his voters in getting his (and their) agenda passed by a self-serving congress, and if some cabinet positions are not filled by the popular choices, then so be it.

    Passing as much of his agenda as he can is the only thing that matters now and those who supported him should understand and accept that. If they don’t, and they only wanted a prestigious job out of it, then they will have supported him for the wrong reasons.

    By the way, Lou may be a little over-the-top about Rudy but he is right-on-target about his distrust of Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy.

  19. We will see about Rex. Usually suspects, McCain, Libbey, all making sound bites.
    Only will take 3? to deny him SOS to join the Dems.

    I don’t know enough about him to make a decision.
    I am.still sad about Rudi.
    But I didn’t make 10 billion and haven’t been elected President either.

  20. @Puma and Gonzo

    The key to peace of mind over the next 40 or so days, as well as for the next 4 to 8 years, is to not pearl clutch at every individual event that occurs day to day. I speak from experience, having pearl clutched my way through the primaries. Give Trump a bloody chance to run the country, without trying to read the tea leaves or interpret the omens in the sky. I won’t be worried about sociopathic CEOs until I see them working against what Trump fought for. I also will not be crying when a sociopath gets to work in cleaning up Obama’s Department of Defense, throwing out all those incompetent boobs and rebuilding what Obama destroyed according to Trump’s vision.

  21. It was great to see Trump welcomed so well at the Army Navy game…they were chanting MAGA…

    His interview at halftime, got to say he made me winch when he said, may not be the best football. I know he didn’t mean it the way it came out, and he recovered, but I swear everytime he does an interview I am holding my breathe.

  22. Mike Marks and Apollos,

    Trump was elected by the American People to do a job. It DOES matter how he gets the job done. I was in petrochemical industry for 20 years. I do not want to see my country run like they run their business. Both the EPA and the SOS appointments are matters for concern.

  23. I’m hoping that Trump is what we think he is, and that he is steadfast and not easily misled. After that I’m hoping that perhaps his vision will guide any cut throat tendencies of any of his appointments – ie that it will translate into hard work for his goals, but not continued cut throat in ways that hurt Americans.

    I don’t know in the detail that Lu does, but I do remember the bad stuff going on with that oil spill, they just added stuff to make the oil sink or something, they didn’t really clean it up, and a lot of animals were hurt. But the rot came from the head not just the companies, because Obama didn’t want to look bad. So maybe this time, in the opposite way, Trump’s better vision will positively impact the behavior of his appointments.

  24. A.J. Delgado ‏@AJDelgado13 15h15 hours ago

    Still confused by this theory.
    Russia meddled to help Trump… and gave Hillary Clinton the popular vote?

  25. Obama’s attempt to drum up a “Russian influence” excuse to save his own sorry butt in the aftermath of US election using the CIA is not only inappropriate it is also almost certainly illegal. The FBI has already said it is poppycock. Who has jurisdiction of investigations within our borders? The FBI. The CIA is not to ever interfere domestically and any and all data, proof, etc would be handed over to the FBI as statutory and established jurisdiction would demand. The CIA knows this but apparently is so politicized by Obama, globalists, and bad actors they are willing to cross this line. The CIA even making comments to aid Obama and to delegitimize a domestic election can be viewed as illegal and highly inappropriate. It would be assumed they tried to rope the FBI in already with their “evidence” and were told this is crap. CIA heads need to roll after Trump’s inauguration.

    If your memory of the devastation of the Gulf of Mexico is sketchy, let me refresh it for you. Contrary to what most people believe, because of the high salaries paid, the Oil and Gas Industry is not a well run business. It is a monopoly and runs more like a crony capitalistic shadow government. That behavior was doubled down when Bush was elected and allowed the mergers if these companies that had been spit up for good reasons.

    The oil well in the Gulf that blew was a project that was pursued despite obvious risks, i.e. they knew it could blow just because of the geology. The idiots at BP did not care. The bosses ignored information on the drilling that there were serious problems. People were killed and nobody went to jail for it. They paid pennies on the dollar for their damage and dictated how the money would be spent.

    When the well blew, causing a the massive release, they added toxic surfactant to the toxic oil to dissolve the oil in the water so that it did not float to the surface and come ashore. They turned the Gulf into a toxic pool. This caused the massive death of the wildlife in the gulf. There was mass death of fish as well as whales and other mammals, dolphins and porpoises. They did not have natural instincts to stay out of the toxins, but died slow horrible deaths from being poisoned.

    To this day, seafood from the Gulf is in question.

    And the dead bodies of the wildlife were removed by the black ops I have been referring to, compliments of primarily ExxonMobil. When environmental groups tried to document what was going on, they were fired upon and forced to leave. American citizens included.

    Where is the outrage?

    And I have heard these clowns, after multi-million dollar screw-ups, sit around joking about now having to raise the price of gas to pay for it. “Oh well, there goes the price of gas again.” is the standard joke.

    Well, I guess it is better than Mr. and Mrs. Purple Sorfeld, but do not kid yourself that this is alright. The American People need to pay attention and get ready to rock and roll.

  27. The CIA claim they “know the individuals” involved. Yet under Obama the USA has been absolutely ruthless in its persecution of whistleblowers, and its pursuit of foreign hackers through extradition. We are supposed to believe that in the most vital instance imaginable, an attempt by a foreign power to destabilise a US election, even though the CIA knows who the individuals are, nobody is going to be arrested or extradited, or (if in Russia) made subject to yet more banking and other restrictions against Russian individuals? Plainly it stinks. The anonymous source claims of “We know who it was, it was the Russians” are beneath contempt.

    As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two.

    snip

    Now both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously. Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who do have access. After access, you consider truthfulness. Do Julian Assange and I have a reputation for truthfulness? Well in 10 years not one of the tens of thousands of documents WikiLeaks has released has had its authenticity successfully challenged. As for me, I have a reputation for inconvenient truth telling.

    Contrast this to the “credible sources” Freedland relies on. What access do they have to the whistleblower? Zero. They have not the faintest idea who the whistleblower is. Otherwise they would have arrested them. What reputation do they have for truthfulness? It’s the Clinton gang and the US government, for goodness sake.

    snip

    When he says “credible sources” he means “establishment sources”. That is the truth of the “fake news” meme. You are not to read anything unless it is officially approved by the elite and their disgusting, crawling whores of stenographers like Freedland.

    The worst thing about all this is that it is aimed at promoting further conflict with Russia. This puts everyone in danger for the sake of more profits for the arms and security industries – including of course bigger budgets for the CIA.

  28. n this weekend’s broadcast of on “Fox News Sunday,”an Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace said President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump were “speaking on a somewhat regular basis” and she added Trump was trying to get guidance from Obama
    ——–
    Guidance??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    From Obama????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Are you that stupid?

    Or do you just think we are?

    Guidance on exactly what?

    How to defeat ISIS?

    How to negotiate with Iran?

    How to deal with Chinese currency manipulation?

    How to grow the national debt from $9 billion to a cool comfortable $20 billion—4 away from national bankruptcy?

    How to diminish America’s role in the world?

    How to promote racial division?

    How to leave destroy the middle class?

    How to create an economy where 95 million people of working age are not working?

    How to destroy a national health care program?

    How to reset relations with Putin and later claim he is our worst enemy?

    How to sell out our allies, and grovel before our adversaries?

    Which of these elements of the Obama legacy does Trump hope to be schooled on by the big media beloved messiah?

    I think this is more associated press nonsense, which twists the truth to protect their stall fed existence.

    Simply put, they are expendable.

    And that begins by playing them for the suckers they are.

  29. Do you think Trump is the one who is initiating these one on one discussions between himself and Obama?

    On the odds, Obama is the initiator of those discussions, assuming they are even occurring.

    By the way, what does this AP rube know about this?

    Does she sit in on these discussions?

    Has she placed a listening device on the White House telephone system?

    Has she examined the White House log.

    Fuck no.

    All she is doing is parroting the White House talking points.

    So lets get down to the real issue here, shall we?

    As between Trump–the business mogel, and dragon slayer (vs)

    Obama–the community organizer and failed president

    Who has the incentive to say Obama is guiding Trump?

    There is nothing of substance that Trump can learn from Obama

    Except perhaps what not to do if he intends to be successful

    But Obama has one paramount reason to claim he is meeting with Trump

    L-E-G-A-C-Y (or lack thereof)

    What Obama did to his predecessor W

    Trump is now in a position to do to Obama–in spades

    That is to say, blame him for everything that goes wrong

    Which would have the added advantage of being true

    Without Hillary, Obama is at Trump’s mercy–and he knows it

  30. That is why Obama is not loudly objecting to Trump assuming the powers of the presidency during the dying days of his own failed presidency when all he is really interested in at this point is conjuring up a plausible argument for a legacy other than failure.

  31. The US sent a “planeload of FBI agents” to Iceland in 2011 to frame WikiLeaks and its co-founder Julian Assange, according to a former Icelandic minister of interior, who refused them any cooperation and asked them to cease their activities.

    In June 2011, Obama administration implied to Iceland’s authorities they had knowledge of hackers wanting to destroy software systems in the country, and offered help, then-Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson, said in an interview with the Katoikos publication.

    However, Jonasson said he instantly became “suspicious” of the US good intentions, “well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand.”

    WikiLeaks still under investigation, but not its supporters, says DOJ

    Later in the summer 2011, the US “sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland seeking our cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks,” Jonasson said.

    Icelanders seemed like a tough nut to crack, though.

    “Since they had not been authorized by the Icelandic authorities to carry out police work in Iceland and since a crack-down on WikiLeaks was not on my agenda, to say the least, I ordered that all cooperation with them be promptly terminated and I also made it clear that they should cease all activities in Iceland immediately,” the politician said.

    So the US were told to leave, and moreover, the politician made things quite clear for them.

    “If I had to take sides with either WikiLeaks or the FBI or CIA, I would have no difficulty in choosing: I would be on the side of WikiLeaks,” he said.

  32. Rahm Emanuel agrees with Admin’s post.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Fake News
    Dec 9, 2016 | WLS-AM Staff
    By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM 890 News

    (CHICAGO) Mayor Emanuel is in Washington today and Bill Cameron says he made news talking about fake news during an appearance on a Brookings Institute panel.

    A lot of Democrats – notably Hillary Clinton – have said fake news is hurting our democracy. Mayor Emanuel was given a chance to deplore fake news on this think tank panel, but he didn’t.

    “This is a classic, to me, way of the difference between the Washington-New York beltway looks at things and the way they are. You say this ‘fake news.’ Well, to the rest of the world they think the mainstream news is fake and the other ones are looking at as real and it’s again, like two ships passing in the dark. They don’t think the fake news is fake and we talk about what they’re looking at as if it’s fake and they think that what the mainstream elite media produces is fake, which is why they’re driven to other alternatives,” said Mayor Emanuel.

    Rahm also explained Hillary’s loss to Trump as the result of a change election: he was the change and she wasn’t.

  33. Hillary lost because this was a change election?

    That is what Emanuel claims.

    And it is wrong.

    Hillary lost because she failed to realize this was a change election.

    And she failed to tailor her message accordingly.

    Instead she chose to portray herself as Obama III.

    And neither she, or Obama had the skill or the moxy to defeat Trump.

    Trump is the epitome of the man the message and the moment.

    As such he was feted to win, no matter who ran against him.

    I loved that WWF clip in the video Foxy posted

    Where he bitch slaps Vince McMahon, the founder of professional wrestling

    And now Trump has appointed Vince’s wife Linda as head of the SBA.

    PT Barnum move aside. You have got competition.

    This is so far beyond the imagination and skill set of big media as to be laughable.

    They say is this what you want in a president.

    I say, yes, and if you big media are against it, then I am for it.

    Because I know for a fact that you are not on the side of the American People.

    Agree with your comment. I would even say it’s treasonous. These new lows just never end. On the bright side, it should continue to alienate people from the demented Democratic Party.

  35. Trump always railed at politicians who made bad deals with other countries, so this explains what he is looking for in his Secretary of State.

    Whether I choose him or not for "State"- Rex Tillerson, the Chairman & CEO of ExxonMobil, is a world class player and dealmaker. Stay tuned!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2016

  36. I am confident that our relations with Russia will improve when Trump becomes president. If Tillerson becomes secretary of state there will be a sea change. Exxon is, from an outsiders perspective, a well run company.

  37. Admin: dims fear Trump–ever the showman, will give them the same treatment he gave Vince McMahon during the first 100 days. That concern is well placed.
    ——-

    As Donald Trump’s inauguration draws near, Democrats fear they remain woefully unprepared to fight the new president’s agenda.

    The party loses its standard-bearer once President Barack Obama leaves office, and the Democratic National Committee won’t get a permanent chairman and staff until March, two months into the presidency. That Democratic power vacuum has raised concerns about the party’s ability to provide a united message — or even to stand up a centralized rapid response operation — for the president’s first 100 days in office.

    Their worst nightmare is that Trump, ever the showman, will define his opening act with little unified resistance.

    “It’s a very serious concern. I just went on TV twice today on Fox and MSNBC on the Cabinet appointments and I winged it,” said Bill Richardson, the former New Mexico governor and 2008 presidential candidate. “You need something right now. Trump every day is doing something outrageous. What do we do? Criticize everything he does? Hold back a bit? I know we need to develop an economic message but that’s long term. We need something now. Most of the Democrats I talk to are down, and they’re asking who’s in charge.”

  38. This jackal from Connecticut who is begging electors to not vote for Trump is the sort of public servant who has been on stage for far too long, the kind who promotes the view that the elites count and the people do not–and globalism should prevail. He would say he takes a holistic view of politics. I would say he is a sell out. His credentials tell you everything you need to know.

    His parents worked for the Ford foundation

    He went to Harvard

    He went to Oxford

    He worked for Goldman Sachs.

    He is, therefore, a globalist and an enemy of the middle class.

    It is baked into his resume, as we have seen from so many others.

    In my view, people like this should go the way of the Dixiecrat.

    For history has shown they are too arrogant and elitist to do what is right for the American People.

  39. I just really wish he would stop tweeting every thought…also, about not taking the security briefings, kind of was flippant on that.
    He doesn’t need to give them more ammo

  40. Yes,
    The left is beyond nasty, never seen anything like it.
    To think I use to support hillary, and must say, although I did not want her to win, and grew to dislike her, I felt a twinge of sadness, for what could have been.
    Now, I am so upset with her supporters, friends send me crap about electors and overthrowing the vote.
    Me be like…step away from the ledge people. .

  41. Okay after today I literally had to come here and re-read the latest post to regain sanity! In the spirit of same sanity I offer this tweet:

    Mike Cernovich 🇺🇸Verified account
    ‏@Cernovich
    Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize his first year in office. What fake news the Obama story was! #Aleppo

  42. gonzotx, I was never a Hillary supporter but I became open minded toward her because of this website, admin, the commenters here, and Hillbuzz. If I remember correctly I got to this website from reading Hillbuzz, who I found from listening to Rush. That was 8 years ago. But now? I can’t even…

  43. Trump tweeted he will be naming his SOS tomorrow.
    My guess is T-Rex…

    Those pus$ys McConnell and Ryan agree with call for investigation of Russian hacking.

  44. Really all this stuff about Russia is funny. Even if it’s true, for heaven’s sake, Obama went to England to tell them not to vote Brexit, a few years ago he was interfering in the Ukranian elections, I remember there was something before that, and of course, when he was running for president the first time, he went to Africa to tell them to vote for his cousin Odinga or whatever (which I don’t believe was even legal).

    And it would be the FBI investigating something like this. Why is the CIA getting politicized to talk about this? Oh, yeah, there can be no rational reason why Hillary lost, there has to be something hinky going on for her to have lost ROFL

  45. And I do NOT believe that Hillary fairly won the popular vote. There was no excitement for her, and new voters and a lot of dems were voting for Trump. I think they cheated to get her the popular vote and got blindsided because enough good Americans turned out to vote in the areas it counted (that Hillary didn’t care about or took for granted), that the electoral vote did them in. I partly think a lot of this “Russia cheated for Trump” is projection, because THEY cheated on the popular vote but lost anyway.

  46. The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.

    While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations, it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, said the officials, who declined to be named.

    The position of the ODNI, which oversees the 17 agency-strong U.S. intelligence community, could give Trump fresh ammunition to dispute the CIA assessment, which he rejected as “ridiculous” in weekend remarks, and press his assertion that no evidence implicates Russia in the cyber attacks.

    World class dealmaker? Sure. He controls the largest monopoly in the world.

    So we are supposed to believe, with almost $200 million in ExxoMobil stock, that he is going to be making those deals in the best interest of the American People?

    WTF????

    Yep.

  50. Admin,

    Would be interested on your thoughts of the upcoming electors meeting and how you think the final vote will be.

    It’s probably good Trump does not have me for an advisor…well, he could,and say, let’s see what gonzotx thinks and then do the opposite.
    Seeing as he is a multimillionaire President Elect and I am clearly not big league…lol

    You and Tony stay put. I am the one who needs to take a hike for a few days.

    This Trump economic boom reminds me of the Reagan economic boom before he took office. People forget the fact that six months later there was a twenty-five (25%) correction. Even so, no one expected this. And, now of course, they are all in. But the fact is, the fundamentals have not changed. To put a benign interpretation of this, wall street was projecting a 4% increase for next year, this Trump economic boom is anticipatory, and far exceeds that. And some of it reflects the year end pump and dump practices of Wall Street firms to earn bonuses. Therefore, at the slightest provocation, a correction is likely. Trump has an ambitious agenda, and it would be naive to assume that there will be no push back. The FED increase has been factored into the euphoria so it will have no more impact than the Italian election. Again, the fundamentals have not changed. One factor will be the shortfall created by the tax reductions which take place now, and the benefits which will occur incrementally in future years. That is not to suggest he should not be doing this. He must, if we are to have a nation. But the rosy scenario some are predicting is a myth.

    Assuming this is true, then I for one have to say the selection of Ti Rex is a good decision. You are right he has a lot of money and the temptation to help his business will be there. But what if he could help the American People at the same time. And believe me Trump will hold him to just that. I think he could prove to be a great secretary of state. You know more about the oil and gas industry than I do from having worked in it. I think you mentioned that years back. Therefore, you may disagree with my opinion on this. Nevertheless, I think his experience, contacts, and skill set bodes well for our future dealings with China, where we can no longer afford to give the store away, and must get our jobs back. I would rather have him working on that problem, under Trump’s supervision, than have some political hack in there. One of those heck of a job Brownie types who festoon dino and rino administrations.

    This never gets old, lol!

  54. First…Wbb, please make it just a few days ok?
    I too have fears my 403a will tank
    I can’t afford another “25%” correction..too old. I finally get back what I lost, then BAM…back down the rabbit hole.
    I am trying to resist putting it all in guaranteed bonds that don’t even make inflation, but you hold what you put into it. Not a way to feel safe about your financial future. Week knees after too many losses, 2001, 2008, and then some straight up poor decisions.
    I am upset over the anxiety this post election has caused me, being selfish here, but on top of some interesting health twists of my own, and sisters, feeling vulnerable.
    Hate that feeling
    I have a great deal of respect for people who are able to overcome their challenges and doubts and trug through the fog.
