Hail Mary Pass

Reliable Sources,

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is a close associate of Assange, called the CIA claims “bullshit”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”
“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.

NBC reports that "new intelligence shows that Putin personally directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used. The intelligence came from diplomatic sources and spies working for U.S. allies, the officials said.

Harvard Law Professor, Larry Lessig says he's close to turning enough Republican electors to put Clinton in the White House, instead of Trump.

Jim Kunstler points out the actual nature of the poisoned and empty chalice, which Donald Trump is presumed to win Monday, December 19, when electors cast their votes. ("Trump-flavored collapse", says I.)
The disappointment issuing from this dire set of circumstances is apt to be epic as Trump flounders and the furious tweets of futility waft out of the hole he’s trapped in. Christmas will be over, and with it the hopes of a retail reprieve. Gasoline may remain cheap, but the little people won’t be able to buy the cars to run it in. Or buy much of anything else. Not even tattoos.

Turkish Revenge on EU and Greece:
The numbers of migrants crossing from Turkey to the eastern Aegean islands are on the rise, but the percentage of those who merit international protection is on the wane.
A total 324 undocumented migrants crossed from Turkey on Friday, most of them from Africa and Pakistan. Another 330 reached Greece on Saturday.
Refugee families currently stranded on the islands are reluctant to share a roof with economic migrants, mostly young men from the Maghreb region (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria) who allegedly often display delinquent behavior and are on the front lines of riots at reception centers.

The lame-duck EPA, soon to be destroyed by new director Scott Pruitt, finally, guardedly declares that yes, fracking contaminates local wells, "under some circumstances". The Science Advisory Board also took issue with how the draft report inexplicably omittedthree critical fracking-contamination cases—Dimock, Pennsylvania; Parker County, Texas; and Pavillion, Wyoming.

Spitting up Kool-Aid
