Fake News Site

Thoroughly Indoctrinated,

More Russian Propaganda from Sputnik, or is it pro-Clinton, or maybe the threatened Trump-recount finally come to pass...
(Clearly subversive) Jill Stein gets twice as much money for this recount effort in 2 days as she got for her whole candidacy.
Stein said that her "interest as a citizen, as a person in America, that the vote be valid," is what's driving the effort from her end. "Why would anyone in their right mind not want to have secure and verified vote? In a very vicious, hotly contested election that used hack-friendly voting machines, in a hack-riddled election, we deserve some confidence in the outcome of this election," she said.
 "I'm responding to a [group] of people…observers and advocates, both experts and just ordinary citizens, who feel like this is unacceptable and that these machines as a baseline is not the way we should be voting."

Bernie Sanders had the same brilliant and original idea as Abraham Lincoln when he introduced legislation to directly spend money into the economy for a trillion $ infrastructure project. He will introduce it again after the inauguration, deriding Trumps plan as more pork for big capitalism. (Green-backs, green-backs, green-backs!)

It says here that Sanders should talk to Trump sooner, rather than later. (I suspect this is in the works. There are probably negotiations underway between Sanders, Team Trump, and the fatally-gored Democratic party machine. I think Sanders would make an excellent Secretary of Labor for the times ahead. Paul Ryan would disagree, of course.)

Ilargi advocates moving quickly as Americans do the deer-in-the-headlights thing.
Gabbard wants the US to stop killing people in Syria. Is that a bad thing, anyone? She broke with the DNC when she figured out then-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was favoring Hillary and working against Bernie. If Gabbard’s move is not enough to make you move and un-dig your heels, how about Bernie Sanders himself taking a seat in the Trump government? Would that do the trick? The Donald would love it. Bernie would be told he’s betraying his party, for sure, but we all know the party betrayed him first. He’s either got a few years left to do something real, or he can see himself be betrayed all over again in 2020.
German sentiment and that of 15 other European countries, now yearns to negotiate down the current military confrontation with Russia.   U.S. officials are skeptical about the initiative, citing Russia’s failure to abide by existing agreements and treaties. Steinmeier also drew criticism from U.S. and NATO officials in June after warning that Western military maneuvers in eastern Europe amounted to “saber-rattling and shrill war cries” that could worsen tensions with Russia.   
A view of General Michael Flynn, Trumps pick for National Security Adviser. (We'll see how this goes. Sharp and quick to change assessments, when facts change, but also hair-triggered, according to some.)
Erdogan again threatens to send 3 million refugees to Europe in taxis.
Turkish military forces (not "invaders") are in Northern Syria, supporting anti-regime militias there (not "terrorists"), near Al Bab. Turkey is livid as it reports that Syrian Army forces have killed some innocent Turkish non-invaders. This could lead to "war".  "While it is entirely possible that Syrian aircraft did launch the attack, there is strong evidence to suggest that Turkey is seeking to pin the blame on Damascus to legitimize its ongoing incursion. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition-aligned organization that can hardly be accused of having a brief for the Assad government, reported that the Turkish casualties were in fact caused by an ISIS suicide bombing on Wednesday. For its part, the Turkish government imposed a gag order on media reporting of the attack."
Russian propaganda source, Sputnik News, claims that nice-moderate-rebels in Aleppo have used mustard gas on the human-shield residents there. (When will we get all these fake-news sites off the poor internet?)
The Archdruid looks at the history of Free Trade:  "So the great free trade era that began tentatively with the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846, and came into full flower with Gladstone’s abolition of tariffs in 1869, ended in the stock market debacle of 1929 and the Great Depression. The road there was littered with plenty of other crises, too. The economic history of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is a cratered moonscape of speculative busts and stock market crashes, culminating in the Big One in 1929."
All Aboard the Post TPP World: (Reversion to a multipolar world is happening, isn't it?)
India is still having problems since demonitizing 88% of cash in her mostly-cash-economy. Huge jumps in taxes on undeclared cash don't seem to have fixed it yet.
