about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
Joseph Stiglitz knows a few things about economics. He was the chief economist of the World Bank
from 1997 to 2000. He was the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors to President Bill Clinton
from 1995 to 1997. He is currently an Economics professor at Columbia University.
He also writes for an outlet called Project Syndicate, an online warehouse of various columnists and opinion writers
that can get picked up an published by newspapers. The website is practically an independent
periodical, except the individuals who write are mostly reputable and knowledgable. Any potential
spin is at least intelligent, and not based on blatant abuse of facts or outright lies, which has
somehow become tolerable in the mainstream press.
During the campaign, Trump promised to get tough on executives who outsource American jobs. He is
now holding up the news that the home heating and air-conditioning manufacturer Carrier will keep
around 800 jobs in my home state of Indiana as proof that his approach works. Yet the deal will cost
taxpayers $7m, and still allow Carrier to outsource 1,300 jobs to Mexico. This is not a sound
industrial or economic policy, and it will do nothing to help raise wages or create good jobs across
the country. It is an open invitation for a shakedown of the government by corporate executives
Similarly, the increase in infrastructure spending is likely to be accomplished through tax credits,
which will help hedge funds, but not America’s balance sheet: such programmes’ long track record
shows that they deliver little value for money. The cost to the public will be especially high in an
era when the government can borrow at near-zero interest rates. If these private-public partnerships
are like those elsewhere, the government will assume the risks, and the hedge funds will assume the
The debate just eight years ago about “shovel-ready” infrastructure seems to be a distant memory. If
Trump chooses shovel-ready projects, the long-term impact on productivity will be minimal; if he
chooses real infrastructure, the short-term impact on economic growth will be minimal. And
back-loaded stimulus has its own problems, unless it is managed extremely carefully.
If Trump’s pick for US treasury secretary, the Goldman Sachs and hedge fund veteran Steven Mnuchin,
is like others from his industry, the expertise he will bring to the job will be in tax avoidance,
not constructing a well-designed tax system .... [T]ax reform was inevitable, and was likely to be
undertaken by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his staff – giving the rich the less progressive,
more capital-friendly tax system that Republicans have long sought. With the abolition of the estate
tax, the Republicans would finally realise their long-held ambition of creating a dynastic
plutocracy – a far cry from the “equality of opportunity” maxim the party once trumpeted.

The Bahamas connection
Rex Tillerson sat on the board of a Russian oil company based out of the Bahamas. Click here for the story in the Guardian, a UK newspaper.
Tillerson – the chief executive of ExxonMobil – became a director of the oil company’s Russian
subsidiary, Exxon Neftegas, in 1998. His name – RW Tillerson – appears next to other officers who
are based at Houston, Texas; Moscow; and Sakhalin, in Russia’s far east.

Global capitalism New York conference
This is a great
video lecture from Richard D. Wolff, a very intelligent, infamous professor of economics at
University of Massachusetts from 1973 to 2008. He is called a "socialist" economist, but I think he
is more of a historian than anything else. He just happens to be anti-militarist, and so I think
that's why he gets this label -- because he thinks the economy should not be run dominated by
military spending. Regardless of your perspective, his intelligence transcends ideological bounds
because he truly understands economics and history.

Sabotage and Jim Crow
Click here for the Greg Palast report on how Rethuglicans sabotage democracy
with a straight face.
How come Obama said nothing about this during his big Friday speech? Not one word from our black
president. Not one single word.
Who do you really work for Mr. Barack Obama?

Thank you again Washington Post
Jill Stein has done the nation a tremendous public service. Why the fuck is Hilary and Obama absent
on this issue? Because they are complicit in the corporate fascist takeover. That's why.
How else can you explain saying nothing about the theft of votes by massive obstruction and removal
from the voter rolls? Robert Kennedy spent 90% of his time as Attorney General during his brother's
presidency taking Jim Crow to court and viciously standing up for voting rights in our country.
What the fuck has Obama done but try to focus the country on Russian hacking, saying absolutely
nothing about what really happened?
Seven million and more voters got their names removed from the voter rolls and had to vote on
provisional ballots that never got counted. The media wants you to believe that Democrats did not
show up this election cycle. The media wants you to believe that working class democrats voted with
Trump in this election cycle. Bullshit. They just got taken off from the registration rolls and
didn't have their votes counted. It wasn't Russian hacking schemes. It was treasonous Rethuglican
OMG. Turns out that Trump is using his world-wide hotels as a means to extort bribes from
government officials. Hmm, sounds like what the Italian mafia used to do with restaurants.
Trump is now taking his name off the Trump Hotel in question, and has removed the hotel from his
website. If you visit trumphotels.com/rio-de-janeiro – which according to Google is still the
official web page for the hotel in question – it now simply defaults to the front page of
trumphotels.com instead. The scrambling comes as the Washington Post reports that Trump Hotels is
giving up operation of the hotel entirely.
And there is this
In a separate but similarly themed development, a new Newsweek report from Kurt Eichenwald reveals
that the President of Turkey has arrested one of Donald Trump’s business partners in an apparent bid
to influence Trump’s foreign policy decisions.
Thank you Washington Post for standing up for our nation.

Do not forget the cross-check shenanigans
This for Thom Hartmann's latest video.
Remember Kris Kobach
was photographed with a packet of papers about this wide-spread voter purge
tactic that was poised as being anti-alien or immigrant registration, when it's really just a
national roll out of the cross-check voter purge he inaugurated in this election cycle -- all of
which is explained in the above Thom Hartmann video. Don't lose sight of all the things the
Rethuglicans did this election (without the help of the Ruskies) ... at 15:25 in the Thom Hartmann
And don't forget, why did the head of the FBI Comey chose to make public the non-story of Clinton
emails, while saying nothing about the real story of Russian hacking?

Open letter from 10 electors
Click here for an open letter to Donald Trump for him to explain his
relationship with Russia.
The point is these police are attacking these water protectors specifically because the Dakota
Access Pipeline will make Billions upon Billions of dollars for the corporate totalitarian state.
And not without polluting the various water aquifers and agricultural farmland along the way. All
for maybe 50 years of a diminishing resource, when we should be looking to the future for renewable
energy sources. Greed has no bounds.

Lee Camp is awesome
Click here for a video
with Lee Camp speaking the truth. Sadly it has to be on RT.
Here is the Youtube intro.
Published on Nov 10, 2016
Buckle up, folks! Because the GOP definitely stole this election through extreme and coordinated
voter suppression. It's CRAZY barely any media outlets are reporting this. In the newest episode of
Redacted Tonight VIP, host Lee Camp interviews award-winning investigative journalist, Greg Palast.
Greg explains in great detail just how this election heist went down. Make sure to catch this highly
redacted interview and watch Greg’s film, “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.” Then for good measure,
Mark Crispin Miller, a Professor of Media, Culture and Communications at New York University joins
Lee. Miller is the author of “Fooled Again: The Real Case for Electoral Reform” and “Loser Take All:
Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy.” Lee interviews the brilliant academic to find out
exactly how our elections are compromised and how our most basic democratic right has been ripped
away from us.
Mark Crispin Miller: "To put it bluntly, um, a candidate prevailed thanks to a tremendous amount
of vote suppression and election fraud. Ironically, because in this case, the candidate who won,
Donald Trump, had become notorious, really since the summer, for claiming the election could be
rigged, and the entire liberal media establishment flipped out over this and couldn't say enough bad
things about him for having the gall to say that the elections in this country could possibly be
stolen. He was actually right about that... the irony about this is that Trump actually benefited
from this by these devices... this is very similar with what happened in 2000 and 2004 with
Bush-Cheney...When the exit poll results diverge from the official votes you know that something
suspicious is going on."
Did you know that in Ohio, Ballot machine protection computer systems were turned off? A
Rethuglican judge allowed Rethuglican officials to leave the machines in an unprotected state when
this was brought before the court by Bob Fitrakis in protest. This is what
happens when you have a Rethuglican Secretary of State running elections. Click here and here
for where I got this information.

is really full of fulsome bullshit.
