5 People Who Deserved Time’s Person of the Year Besides Greta Thunberg

0

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

If you’ve gone on the internet this week, you’ve likely seen that 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg was chosen as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019. Congratulations Ms. Thunberg. This is a huge accomplishment, especially at the age of 16, which is a record for the youngest person ever to receive this honor.

Nadler: “We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems…”

by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said during a committee hearing on Dec. 11 that America can’t wait until 2020 to see if President Donald Trump gets beaten by a Democrat.

“We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems, when the president threatens the very integrity of that election,” Nadler claimed.

He was speaking during a tense markup of articles of impeachment against the president.

Democrats say Trump obstructed the congressional investigation into his alleged use of the presidency to demand a foreign government attack his political rivals.

The U.S. Government Lied About the Afghanistan War

by Ted Rall, Lew Rockwell:

18 years and tens of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars too late, it’s nice to see the media finally shame these scumbags and their government handlers. But they ought to save a big portion of the blame for themselves.

“In ten years or so, we’ll leak the truth,” the Dead Kennedys sang. “But by then it’s only so much paper.”

But it might just score you a Pulitzer Prize.

Award bait and bragging rights are no doubt the principal goals of The Washington Post’s self-congratulatory data dump, “The Afghanistan Papers.” As the headline implies, the 2000 pages that a court ordered the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction to release to Jeff Bezos’ newspaper paints a Robert McNamara-esque portrait of not-so-best-or-bright Bush and Obama Administration bozos privately admitting what they knew all along—that the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was always an unwinnable, counterproductive mistake—at the same time they were telling the American people that victory in the post-9/11 “good war” was right around the corner. All we had to win was win Afghan hearts and minds.

Tax Loss Season: What Does the Broken Clock Setup Look Like?

by Marin Katusa, International Man:

Back in October 2018, Goldcorp was trading at its lowest level in 16 years.

This was before Goldcorp merged with Newmont, one of the world’s largest and oldest gold producers.

Goldcorp wasn’t alone. Shares of precious metal mining companies were decimated in a horrid year for gold stocks.

The last time Goldcorp traded below $9 was in 2002. That was back when gold was trading for under $300 an ounce.

THE CONTAGION HAS SPREAD: GLOBAL AUTO MARKET COLLAPSE

from Silver Doctors:

It’s no secret the auto market worldwide has been mired in recession, and it looks like the collapse won’t slow anytime soon… 

From Zero Hedge

It is no secret that the auto market worldwide has been mired in recession that looks to not have any plans of decelerating anytime soon. We have covered, at length, the collapse of auto sales not only in the U.S., but in leading global markets like China and Europe over the last 18 months.

Labour’s failure to realise this was a 2nd Brexit referendum hands Britain to Boris

from RT:

Labour went into the British general election promising voters a second Brexit referendum, fatally failing to realise that this election was the second referendum.

There was no other game in town, this was the Brexit election and the only way to win it was to promise to get Britain out of the EU and put everyone out of their Brexit misery, but Jeremy Corbyn (as well as the Liberal Democrats) failed to see which way the wind was blowing.

The poor old deluded Lib Dems lost their leader Jo Swinson on the night when she couldn’t even garner enough support to win her own seat, let alone Downing Street. The promise to just outright cancel Brexit was doomed to failure, but in defence of the liberals, they did have to try and differentiate themselves from the two main parties.

NY Post Editorial Board Names Eric Ciaramella As Whistleblower

0

from ZeroHedge:

The New York Post Editorial Board has named CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower at the heart of the Trump impeachment saga, confirming an October 30 report by RealClearInvestigation‘s Paul Sperry which has been widely cited in subsequent reports.

Whistleblower lawyers refuse to confirm or deny Ciaramella is their man. His identity is apparently the worst-kept secret of the Washington press corps. In a sign of how farcical this has become, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said his name as part of a series of names during a live hearing Wednesday night aired on television. He never called him the whistleblower, just said he was someone Republicans thought should testify, yet Democrats angrily denounced the “outing.” If you don’t know the man’s name, how do you know the man’s name? –New York Post

Report: Mitch McConnell Likely to Acquit Trump, Not Dismiss Impeachment Charges

from True Pundit:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to acquit President Donald Trump in the Senate if he’s impeached in the House, not just dismiss the charges against him, two senators told CNN on Wednesday.

CNN reportsRepublicans want to have a vote on acquittal — to clear the President of the charges against him — not simply rely on a 51-vote threshold procedural motion to dismiss the hotly disputed case.

Role of Secret Societies in Bringing Forth the Coveted New World Order

from Humans Are Free:

The pulsing, squeezing beat of the living organism called the Elite — those in influential positions who are making unwanted decisions for us — have succeeded in bringing forth a global government or New World Order (NWO).

They pulled out their entire armory, and over dozens of years, generations of generations, they have pushed the NWO agenda down our throats, and we’ve meekly accepted it.

Transgender propaganda: “Girl’s brave journey as one of the youngest children in the UK to begin the transition process”

0

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

A three-year-old doesn’t have the mental capacity to understand much of anything, let alone their “gender identity.”

At three (when this boy realized he was born in the wrong body) one is barely able to string a sentence together, can only county to ten, name a few colors of Crayola crayons, follow three-step directions, and begins to understand the concept of “same” and “different.”

Yet somehow this child was able to fully grasp the concept – at three years old – of being born in the “wrong body.”
