    What are EXTRORDINARY national security issues, Mr Stone ?

    Roger Stone was about to speak about them to Alex Jones but Alex interrupted him, as he usually does.

    What do you think he was about to say?

    Thanks Innocent Warrior for pointing out the Pepe the frog phenomenon. We are in chaotic times and that suits perfectly, although to my mind we are the Chaos rather than the frog since it is us that perpetuates the phenomenon.
    Aracuria, I am reminded of some instances where the Simpsons hinted at other false flags, such as 9-11.. so whether this Trump thingy is happenstance or otherwise is open to speculation. if we really wanted to know, all we could do is ask the creator of the Simpsons.. but I doubt they would tell us. On my part it was in the media, and it struck me so I posted it. Thats all.

    I am intrigued by Wikileaks and how humans ( this is a worldwide phenomenon ) ignore the exposes when it suits them. I have had an explosion (post election) on Facebook about my friends and colleagues (in Asia and Europe) railing about Trump and how/why his victory shocked them. To them he is bigot. The second observation is their exasperation at Americans about the fact that they voted him in. They (on FB) absolutely ignored HRC's crimes, misdeeds and corruption. It probably is a testament to the role the global MSM played to a tee painting Trump in such a light and their success in downplaying HRC.

    Here's the link to the full email Turiya posted. Opposite of what was reported by the MSM with their political experts.

    More from that email -

    Quote We're told that President Clinton (like Mrs. Clinton and many other Dems) thinks the single greatest weapon against Trump is Trump's own instinct to make outrageous, divisive, even hateful comments that can come across as unpresidential. He, Mrs. Clinton, and the campaign all agree that they will need to seize on opportunities to paint Trump as extremist and recklessly impulsive.

    We're told that President Clinton, like Secretary Clinton and some others, think Trump could pose a real threat in battleground states that President Obama carried in 2008 and 2012 like Virginia and Ohio and he will be competitive in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

    We're also told that the campaign intends to unleash President Clinton on social media and the campaign trail when Trump lashes out/tries to sway the news cycle.

    The Clintons And Soros Launch America's Purple Revolution

    by Tyler Durden Nov 11, 2016 11:05 PM

    Submitted by Wayne Madsen via Strategic-Culture.org,


    Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to «go quietly into that good night».
    On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

    The Clintons, who both have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions and Clinton Foundation donations from Soros, were, in fact, helping to launch Soros’s «Purple Revolution» in America. The Purple Revolution will resist all efforts by the Trump administration to push back against the globalist policies of the Clintons and soon-to-be ex-President Barack Obama. The Purple Revolution will also seek to make the Trump administration a short one through Soros-style street protests and political disruption.

    It is doubtful that President Trump’s aides will advise the new president to carry out a diversionary criminal investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s private email servers and other issues related to the activities of the Clinton Foundation, especially when the nation faces so many other pressing issues, including jobs, immigration, and health care. However, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said he will continue hearings in the Republican-controlled Congress on Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and Mrs. Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin. President Trump should not allow himself to be distracted by these efforts. Chaffetz was not one of Trump’s most loyal supporters.

    America’s globalists and interventionists are already pushing the meme that because so many establishment and entrenched national security and military «experts» opposed Trump’s candidacy, Trump is «required» to call on them to join his administration because there are not enough such «experts» among Trump’s inner circle of advisers. Discredited neo-conservatives from George W. Bush’s White House, such as Iraq war co-conspirator Stephen Hadley, are being mentioned as someone Trump should have join his National Security Council and other senior positions. George H. W. Bush’s Secretary of State James Baker, a die-hard Bush loyalist, is also being proffered as a member of Trump’s White House team. There is absolutely no reason for Trump to seek the advice from old Republican fossils like Baker, Hadley, former Secretaries of State Rice and Powell, the lunatic former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, and others. There are plenty of Trump supporters who have a wealth of experience in foreign and national security matters, including those of African, Haitian, Hispanic, and Arab descent and who are not neocons, who can fill Trump’s senior- and middle-level positions.

    Trump must distance himself from sudden well-wishing neocons, adventurists, militarists, and interventionists and not permit them to infest his administration. If Mrs. Clinton had won the presidency, an article on the incoming administration would have read as follows:
    «Based on the militarism and foreign adventurism of her term as Secretary of State and her husband Bill Clinton’s two terms as president, the world is in store for major American military aggression on multiple fronts around the world. President-elect Hillary Clinton has made no secret of her desire to confront Russia militarily, diplomatically, and economically in the Middle East, on Russia’s very doorstep in eastern Europe, and even within the borders of the Russian Federation. Mrs. Clinton has dusted off the long-discredited ‘containment’ policy ushered into effect by Professor George F. Kennan in the aftermath of World War. Mrs. Clinton’s administration will likely promote the most strident neo-Cold Warriors of the Barack Obama administration, including Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland, a personal favorite of Clinton».
    President-elect Trump cannot afford to permit those who are in the same web as Nuland, Hadley, Bolton, and others to join his administration where they would metastasize like an aggressive form of cancer. These individuals would not carry out Trump’s policies but seek to continue to damage America’s relations with Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, and other nations.

    Not only must Trump have to deal with Republican neocons trying to worm their way into his administration, but he must deal with the attempt by Soros to disrupt his presidency and the United States with a Purple Revolution
    No sooner had Trump been declared the 45th president of the United States, Soros-funded political operations launched their activities to disrupt Trump during Obama’s lame-duck period and thereafter. The swiftness of the Purple Revolution is reminiscent of the speed at which protesters hit the streets of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in two Orange Revolutions sponsored by Soros, one in 2004 and the other, ten years later, in 2014.

    As the Clintons were embracing purple in New York, street demonstrations, some violent, all coordinated by the Soros-funded Moveon.org and «Black Lives Matter», broke out in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Oakland, Nashville, Cleveland, Washington, Austin, Seattle, Philadelphia, Richmond, St. Paul, Kansas City, Omaha, San Francisco, and some 200 other cities across the United States.

    The Soros-financed Russian singing group «Pussy Riot» released on YouTube an anti-Trump music video titled «Make America Great Again». The video went «viral» on the Internet. The video, which is profane and filled with violent acts, portrays a dystopian Trump presidency. Following the George Soros/Gene Sharp script to a tee, Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova called for anti-Trump Americans to turn their anger into art, particularly music and visual art. The use of political graffiti is a popular Sharp tactic. The street protests and anti-Trump music and art were the first phase of Soros’s Purple Revolution in America.

    President-elect Trump is facing a two-pronged attack by his opponents. One, led by entrenched neo-con bureaucrats, including former Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, and Bush family loyalists are seeking to call the shots on who Trump appoints to senior national security, intelligence, foreign policy, and defense positions in his administration. These neo-Cold Warriors are trying to convince Trump that he must maintain the Obama aggressiveness and militancy toward Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other countries. The second front arrayed against Trump is from Soros-funded political groups and media. This second line of attack is a propaganda war, utilizing hundreds of anti-Trump newspapers, web sites, and broadcasters, that will seek to undermine public confidence in the Trump administration from its outset.

    One of Trump’s political advertisements, released just prior to Election Day, stated that George Soros, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs chief executive officer Lloyd Blankfein, are all part of «a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities». Soros and his minions immediately and ridiculously attacked the ad as «anti-Semitic». President Trump should be on guard against those who his campaign called out in the ad and their colleagues. Soros’s son, Alexander Soros, called on Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner, to publicly disavow Trump. Soros’s tactics not only seek to split apart nations but also families. Trump must be on guard against the current and future machinations of George Soros, including his Purple Revolution.

    =======================================


    Purple worn by Hillary was the trigger to these armies of MKultras and similars that have been "sleepers" and which are talked about by the likes of Carolyn Hamlett... whether Trump's or Hillary's "supporters," their purpose is to create, support and sustain chaos, I suspect.

    I don't know if this is what you're referring to but yes, immediately after the election she protested out in front of Trump Tower.

    For anyone who read the PEPE article I posted, note the clocks on her pants. And "purple rain in my brain", really? I'm not posting any more on this, I've made my point, it will only serve to assist them otherwise.

    Putin and Trump speak for first time - talk Syria, trade, ecoomic ties, plan to unite in the fight against terrorism

    RT Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:51 UTC


    © Mike Segar, Sergei Karpukhin / Reuters

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, Russia's President Vladimir Putin

    US President-elect Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have held their first telephone call, in which the two leaders discussed Syria and agreed to improve and develop bilateral ties, the Kremlin said in a statement.

    In their telephone conversation, the two leaders agreed that they share a common view on "uniting efforts in the fight with the common enemy number one - international terrorism and extremism," the Kremlin said in a statement published on its website late Monday. The Kremlin added that Putin and Trump also discussed ways to settle the Syria crisis.

    Putin and Trump paid special attention to the importance of establishing a stable basis for bilateral relations by developing trade and economic ties between the two countries and working toward "constructive cooperation," the Kremlin said.

    The president and the president-elect agreed to keep in contact by telephone and have discussed the idea of meeting in person.

    Next year, Russia and the US will celebrate 210 years since the beginning of their diplomatic relations, which might motivate them "reversing towards pragmatic, mutually beneficial cooperation that would satisfy the interests of both countries, promote stability and safety around the world," the statement also says.

    Defcon Warning System reduces threat to lowest possible state after Trump election

    Joey Millar Express UK Tue, 15 Nov 2016 17:56 UTC



    © Getty

    The Defcon Warning System, a private organisation which monitors world events and estimates the nuclear threat against America, is now at Level 5 - its lowest possible state.

    Just weeks ago the warning was accelerated to Level 3 following increased tensions between US and Russia, with insiders fearing the West was creeping closer to nuclear war.

    Level 3 means US troops could be mobilised in as little as 15 minutes.

    But the group, made up of experts claiming to have contacts within the US security industry, have seen Donald Trump's election win as a pacifier for Russian relations.

    The group wrote on its website: "The United States took a tentative step toward a more isolationist policy with its recent presidential election.

    "While it will take several months to see how the US reforms its foreign policy, already some world leaders have expressed hope that relations could improve, including Russia and Syria.

    "If the new US President keeps to his previous statements, look for the United States to withdraw somewhat from military confrontations in the Middle East and possibly European theatre, though it is highly unlikely it will abandon NATO commitments, and the Ukraine will likely pop up again in the near future.

    "Russia, however, will probably wait to see what the new President does, as well as now being hampered by the coming winter."

    Donald Trump's election as president of America was welcomed by Vladimir Putin, leader of the US' biggest rival Russia. He said he hoped the pair would be able to work well together towards a more friendly relationship between the two superstates.

    The group did warn, however, about some remaining threats to US and world security.

    It said: "China and North Korea ... continue to either cast a wary eye or are outright belligerent. Israel ... will become more of a focal point again.

    "Meanwhile, more troops are to be sent to Europe in 2017 to bolster defences against Russian movements and NATO continues building up forces in Poland and surrounding areas to protect against a potential Russian assault."

    While the US government also uses the Defcon system, it is private and not available to the public, so public records are estimates.

    Level 5 means the US Department of Defence should be at its lowest state of readiness for nuclear war.

    Chaos or cunning? Trump strikes back against 'totally wrong' media reports on transition team

    Published time: 16 Nov, 2016 18:43

    Donald Trump © Brian Snyder / Reuters

    President-elect Donald Trump has taken to Twitter again, blasting the media for speculating about his transition team and cabinet appointments. While the press has described the transition as chaotic and confused, Trump called it a “very organized process.”

    Trump’s team needs to find and hire 4,000 political appointees to fill federal government offices, from cabinet-level positions to White House and agency staff, Reuters reported. Last week, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was replaced at the helm of the team by Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

    Pence has reportedly eliminated all lobbyists from the transition team, according to the Wall Street Journal. Among those ousted were former Michigan congressman Mike Rogers, who handled national security business, and Matthew Freedman, who worked on defense and foreign policy.

    “Is there a little confusion in New York? I think there is. I think this is growing pains,” Rogers told CNN on Tuesday. Anonymous sources cited by CNN both confirmed and denied infighting among Trump’s advisers.

    Meanwhile, the New York Times reported that US allies were “scrambling” to get hold of Trump, dialing the Trump Tower in New York. The paper cited a “Western diplomat who spoke on the condition of anonymity to detail private conversations.”

    Trump fired back on Wednesday morning, calling the “failing New York Times” story “totally wrong on transition.” The president-elect also described the process as going “so smoothly.”

    He also dismissed the frenzy of media speculation about his possible cabinet picks, saying he was the only one who knew the “finalists,” and denied rumors about trying to get security clearances for his children, slamming them as “a typically false news story.”


    Trump said he had spoken to leaders of Russia, the UK, China, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and more, and that the Times was “just upset that they looked like fools in their coverage of me.”

    On Tuesday, the president-elect and his family ditched the press pool to dine at a New York steakhouse, leaving the reporters to huddle outside. The slight was condemned by White House Correspondents’ Association president Jeff Mason, who called it “unacceptable” for the president-elect to travel without the press pool.
    A coalition of 11 press groups sent an open letter to Trump on Wednesday, asking him to “preserve longstanding traditions that ensure coverage” of the presidency.

    The press pool dates back to the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and every president since “has treated this important tradition with respect,” according to Thomas Burr, president of the National Press Club.

    It certainly appears that the president-elect is about to break with that tradition, however. There is a lot of bad blood between the press and Trump, with most US newspapers openly endorsing his opponent Hillary Clinton. Trump made media bias a major talking point on the campaign trail, and bypassed the traditional press by communicating with the public directly, via his Twitter account.

    Representative Chris Collins (R-New York), the transition team's congressional liaison, said that Wednesday’s tweets were a way for Trump to blow off some steam, as he is under a lot of pressure.

    "If this is his way of relaxing, God bless him," Collins told CNN. "You don't want this stuff all bottled up.”


    SOTT Comment:
    Apparently the removal of lobbyists from the original list compiled by Christie was one of Pence's first moves as transition team leader. Yesterday, Pence also signed the memorandum allowing the Trump team to work with the Obama administration to ensure the coordination of the transfer of power between the outgoing and incoming administrations. (There was some media frenzy over the fact that Pence had yet to sign the document, the Trump team insisting on some changes of wording.)

    If Trump is to make good on his promises, he has to walk a fine line. He must reward loyalists, gain allies in the establishment, and find effective ways of sidelining those he perceives as fifth columnists, both within his group of supporters and those opportunists who will try to ingratiate themselves into his team. That could mean showing support at one moment, then finding unacceptable conflicts of interest (e.g., with Giuliani) to justify a change of heart.

    Trump is breaking with all sorts of traditions. For example, from the NYT article mentioned above: "his team was improvising the most basic traditions of assuming power. That included working without official State Department briefing materials in his first conversations with foreign leaders." To which we can only say, good job! The State Department will no doubt try to sway a Trump administration in the direction of "business as usual", i.e., "Russia is bad, al-Qaeda is good, etc." The U.S. needs a president who will not only ignore this bad advice, but come up with sane deals with foreign powers.

    From AP:
    Little to no information was released by the transition office, leaving a clutch of reporters gathered in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York to hustle after team members passing between the front doors and the elevators.

    As he had during the campaign, Trump appeared to be increasingly uncomfortable with outsiders and suspicious of those considered part of what one insider called the "bicoastal elite," who are perceived as trying to "insinuate" themselves into positions of power.

    The clampdown on libertarian media that would have been quickly activated after a Clinton victory seems to be going ahead anyway, according to the Alex Jones Show.

    The meme is "Fake News". Twitter and Facebook are cleaning out what they prefer to call Alt-Right accounts, by this new 'fake news' excuse.

    Alex retaliated with a reminder about an old NewsWeek report 35 years ago that oil would run out in 8 years.

    Hopefully, Trump is going to adopt a few tips and tricks from this guy:

    Is Putin finally purging the Medvedev government of its liberal fifth columnists?

    The Saker The Unz Review Thu, 17 Nov 2016 00:42 UTC


    © Sputnik. Mikhail Klementiev

    While the world was focused in rapt attention on the outcome of the US Presidential election, Vladimir Putin did something quite amazing - he arrested Alexei Uliukaev, Minister of the Economy of the Medvedev government, on charges of extortion and corruption. Uliukaev, whose telephone had been tapped by the Russian Security Services since this summer, was arrested in the middle of the night in possession of 2 million US dollars. Putin officially fired him the next morning.

    Russian official sources say that Uliukaev extorted a $2 million bribe for an assessment that led to the acquisition by Rosneft (a state run Russian oil giant) of a 50% stake in Bashneft (another oil giant). Apparently, Uliukaev tried to threaten Igor Sechin, the President of Rosneft and a person considered close to Vladimir Putin and the Russian security and intelligence services.

    Yes, you read that right: according to the official version, a state-owned company gave a bribe to a member of the government. Does that make sense to you? How about a senior member of the government who had his telephone tapped and who has been under close surveillance by the Federal Security Service for over a year - does that make sense to you?

    This makes no sense at all and the Russian authorities fully realize that. But that is the official version. So what is going on here? Do you think that there is a message from Putin here?

    Of course there is!

    Remember the corrupt Minister of Defense Anatolii Serdiukov? He was first fired from his position and only then arrested. But this time around, it is a member of the government which is arrested in the middle of the night. For a few hours, his subordinates could not even reach him - they had no idea what had happened to him. Was that a mistake?

    Hardly.

    The way Uliukaev was detained was carefully choreographed to instil the strongest sense of fear possible in all the other 5th columnists still in power because in so many ways Uliukaev was a symbol for all the the "Atlantic Integrationists" (those in the Kremlin who want to integrate Russia into the US controlled international security system): Uliukaev was a known liberal, just like Nikita Belykh, governor of Kirov Region, who was detained in a high-publicity arrest in June for taking a 400,000 Euros bribe. I would even say that Uliukaev could be considered the ultimate symbol of the Atlantic Integrationists and a faithful member of the Russian "liberal" (meaning the "Washington consensus" type) sect who, in the past had worked with Egor Gaidar and Alexei Kudrin and who now has been brought down by the Russian "siloviki", the top officials of the so-called "power ministries" (defense, state security, intelligence).


    Sergei Korolev, the Head of the Economic Security service of the FSB

    This was immediately recognized by everybody and the main headline of the popular website Gazeta.ru could not be clearer, it read: "The Siloviki brought down Uliukaev" and featured a photo of the key actors of this drama, including the tough-looking man thought to have brought Uliukaev down, Sergei Korolev, the Head of the Economic Security service of the FSB (shown on photo here).

    In April, I predicted that a government purge was in the making. I have to admit that I thought that this would have happened earlier. Apparently Putin decided to take action while Uncle Sam was busy with his own, internal, problems. If that is indeed the reason for the late timing, that says a lot about the power the USA still wields in Russia. Some observers noticed that the arrest of Uliukaev took place after the telephone conversation between Trump and Putin, hinting that Trump might have given Putin the go ahead for the arrest. That is, of course, utter nonsense, but if that can make Putin look bad - it's good enough for the 5th columnists.

    The list of potential 'candidates' to be purged next is still long and includes names like the Deputy Prime Minister Arkadii Dvorkovich, the First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, the Governor of the Russian Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina, the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov and, of course, Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev. Uliukaev was only one amongst many more. Still, he was definitely a top-level target and the manner in which he was arrested must have sent a chill down the spine of all the other 5th columnists in the Kremlin. Just the fact that his phone was tapped for so long is quite unthinkable and clearly points to the fact that nobody is safe from Putin's purges. And that, by itself, is truly a most welcome change: every member of the Medvedev government now has been put on notice that his/her life is now spent under the close scrutiny of the FSB.

    It really matters little what will happen to Uliukaev next. He has been formally arraigned, now his case will be further investigated and then Uliukaev will have his day in court (right now he has only been detained and he will be kept under house arrest for the next two months). Potentially, he faces 15 years in jail and a fine equivalent to 70 times the amount of the bribe he took. Judging by the case of Serdyukov, who has managed to escape any prison time thanks to a Presidential Amnesty for the 20 years of the Russian Constitution, Putin seems to be reluctant to inflict any form of retribution upon his enemies. But even if Uliukaev does not get to enjoy the fresh air of the Siberian taiga, he is already finished as a power broker, and that is all that really matters to Putin.

    What matters here is that in the course of one night, a top level Russian Minister went from his Ministerial Offices to a holding cell and that absolutely nobody saw it coming or could prevent this. Yet again we have a case of 100% Putin style: no warnings of any kind, no hints even, just sudden dramatic action with an immediate result. His "handwriting" is clearly all over the case.

    Uliukaev ain't laughing no more...

    The reaction to this arrest in Russia was predictable, especially after sources in the security services told the Russian media that Arkadii Dvorkovich and Andrei Belousov were also under investigation. Anatolii Chubais, for example, declared that he was in "total shock". Even better was the reaction of Prime Minister Medvedev who said that this development was at the "edge of his understanding".

    It will be interesting to observe the inevitable reaction from the Atlantic Integrationists: if they really feel defeated, they will pay lip-service to the need to "fight corruption on all levels" and generally keep a low profile. If they still have some fight in them, they will denounce a "Stalinist" crackdown, the return to "1930's-like purges" and a "new campaign of terror" against democracy. The western corporate media, whose only "value" is money, will write about how the Russian "secret police" is cracking down on "business entrepreneurs" and how that will end up damaging the Russian economy. Basically, a repeat of the whining which we all heard when Putin dismantled the infamous semibankirshchina. As Elton John would say, we "have seen that movie too..."

    As for the rabid Putin-hating nationalists, they will say that this is too little too late. For years they have been complaining about corruption and how top level officials were never investigated, and now that they seem to have gotten their wish, it's "too little, too late". But that doesn't really matter, since they have almost as little credibility with the Russian general public as the pro-western parties like Iabloko or Parnass.

    The main media outlets and political commentators are all giving Putin a standing ovation right now. That is hardly surprising since they are the ones who for many months now have been loudly and constantly complaining about the "economic bloc of the government", meaning the pro-US 5th columnists inside the Medvedev government. Quite literally all the main political commentators have been begging and demanding a purge of this "economic bloc" and a radical change in the economic policies of Russia. Well, they got one villain purged, which is a good start, but there are no signs that more heads will roll or that the economic course of Russia will finally break from the Washington consensus kind of policies and be replaced with much needed policy of internal growth. But then, knowing Putin, we should not expect any signs - only action.

    In Russia, just as in the USA, changing the people is far easier than changing the system while the only way to achieve real change is, precisely, to change the system, not the people. So far, Putin has only succeeded in kicking some of the worst people out and, to his credit, getting some very good people in. Now that a threat of war with the USA is very substantially reduced and that Uncle Sam will be busy with his own, internal, struggles, I hope that Putin will finally take some very strong action to liberate Russia from the Washington consensus types and replace them with real patriots who will finally make it possible for Russia to become a truly sovereign country, even in the economic sense.

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LIBERTY MOVEMENT?

    http://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/what...erty-movement/
    Quote The past week in the US was largely defined by a nationwide protest movement against the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President.

    Putin was quick to congratulate Trump on his win and said he looked forward to Russia normalizing relations with the US, releasing photos of his teetotaling self, hoisting a flute of Champagne.

    The threat of a nuclear war plunged from 3, “Above normal levels, Air Force ready to mobilize in 15 minutes,” to 5, “Normal peacetime readiness.” (1 signifies “Maximum readiness; all forces ready for combat; nuclear war imminent or likely”).

    Having been born during the Cold War, I was confounded that these protestors could care less about the nuclear war already hovering over our heads and promising to zoom to a more perilous Defcon, with the election of their candidate. They didn’t care about the war crimes that have bloodied the hands of Secretary Clinton, in the massacres of 500k+ civilian innocents in Libya and Syria. They didn’t care about the complete demolition of these countries’ infrastructures, ancient monuments and the total destruction of these societies. They were perfectly fine with Hillary’s vote to invade Iraq, where another 1M+ civilians were slaughtered and that country also razed to the ground for no good reason.

    They weren’t protesting the 7k+ US fighters killed in action over the past 15 years and ~50k maimed, in the longest continuous armed conflict of any other in US history. They weren’t protesting about 9/11, which altered our legal structure into a sick surveillance state, unimaginable to George Orwell. They couldn’t give a damn, that under Obama, State propaganda was legalized and that he incrementally added executive powers to the yearly National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), to the point where now, the US President has the right to detain or to kill anybody, anywhere on the planet without due process.

    Where’s that social justice, when you really need it?

    Tens of thousands of people took to the streets, who were apparently OK with a fifth term of bloodthirsty and financially ruinous NeoCon “Endless War” policies, guaranteed by Hillary’s Warhawk rhetoric. That was just fine.

    Snowflake sensibilities boiled over into violent riots, over some stupid things that Donald Trump said, which could never pass into law.

    That was how I felt until yesterday, when I saw this clip by TruthstreamMedia – and I realized that I’d been fooled again.
