It looks like the turmoil for the financial markets is going to continue to get worse, and the mainstream media is really starting to freak out. Just a few months ago, they were continuously using the word “booming” to describe the state of the U.S. economy and they were assuring us that the stock market was going to continue to go up. But after a couple of really bad months, there has been a dramatic psychological shift. Instead of telling us that everything is going to be great, now the mainstream media is starting to sound just like The Economic Collapse Blog. For example, Bloomberg just posted an article with this rather startling headline: “It’s the worst time in decades to make money in the markets”…

When even the Washington Post is saying your Russiagate article is bad journalism, your Russiagate article is really, really bad journalism.
In an article titled “The Guardian offered a bombshell story about Paul Manafort. It still hasn’t detonated.”, WaPo writer Pul Farhi draws attention to the fact that it has been a week since the Guardian published a claim that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort met repeatedly with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, without any evidence backing up the claim, using solely anonymous sources, and despite the claims contradicting known records of Assange’s guests at the Ecuadorian embassy. Criticism and demands for answers have been growing louder and louder from both friends and enemies of WikiLeaks, with new plot holes opening up in the Guardian‘s narrative daily, and the scandal is now moving into mainstream awareness.
from The Anti Media:
Once an anti-Semitic rumor moved from fringe to the mainstream, it took less than two weeks for violence to erupt. The false allegation that liberal philanthropist George Soros was funding or supporting a caravan of Honduran refugees heading to the U.S. spread wildly from a single tweet posted on Oct. 14.
Along with far-right memes, that allegation helped motivate both an alleged mail-bomber and a mass shooter at a Pittsburgh synagogue. The way these messages traveled across the internet in this short time span is just one example of how extremist messages and memes circulate with incredible speed across mainstream social media platforms.

We are only two days away from the beginning of Jeffrey Epstein’s civil trial and he can no longer hide. Do a search for the billionaire, convicted sex offender and it becomes clear that Epstein’s time in the shadows is coming to an end. Headlines like “Trump’s Labor Secretary Once Helped a Billionaire Child Rapist Hide His Crimes“, “Records Show Bid to Block Info From Epstein Exposé”, “How the powerful protect Jeffrey Epstein“, and “Trump Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta allegedly helped cover up sex crimes by Jeffrey Epstein“, and it’s obvious his name will not be forgotten anytime soon.
by Eric Zuesse, Strategic Culture:
On November 16th, the Washington Post headlined that “CIA concludes Saudi crown prince ordered Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination” and reported that “The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking [Crown Prince] Mohammed [bin Salman] to the [murder] operation.”
Then, after almost a full week of silence on that, US President Trump, on November 22nd, denied that the CIA had come to any conclusion, at all, about whether Saudi Crown Prince Salman had ordered the murder of Khashoggi: Trump said “They did not come to a conclusion. They have feelings certain ways. I have the report… They have not concluded. I don’t know if anyone’s going to be able to conclude that the Crown Prince did it.” Congressional Democrats promptly responded to the President’s statement, by repeating what the Washington Post had said, and telling CNN, “The CIA concluded that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia was directly involved in the assassination of Khashoggi. They did it with high confidence, which is the highest level of accuracy that they will vouch for.”
Independent Media Labeled ‘Dangerous’ & Disqus Comment Notifications Listed In Gmail As Suspicious Or Spam As Big Tech Finds News Ways To Attack Alternative Media Websites
by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:
Independent Media readers are well aware of the multitude of ways big tech and social media platforms have been censoring conservatives, from demonetizing video channels, to blocking, banning and shadow banning conservatives, to limiting the reach of promotions and by “tweaking” algorithms so that search results push Independent Media sites so far down that they can rarely be found. They also colluded to completely deplatform Alex Jones, where a dozen different services cut ties with him, or terminated service all within a 24 hour period of time.
This morning The Daily Caller published an exclusive blockbuster report showing discussions by Google employees, where they debated whether to bury conservative media outlets content in their search results, after Donald Trump won the 2016 president election, in order to prevent him from winning again.
A Google spokesperson told The Daily Caller “Google has never manipulated its search results or modified any of its products to promote a particular political ideology. Our processes and policies do not allow for any manipulation of search results to promote political ideologies.”

- The Facts:We speak to eyewitness journalist Luke Rudkowski, who has been on the ground in Tijuana, in order to get a deeper picture on our analysis of what’s happening with the migrant caravan. It appears the media is, in fact, deceiving people.
- Reflect On:Remember, it is the goal of the deep state to keep people charged and locked into lower states of emotion to continue supporting this system, if we transcend that, we transcend these systems and structures. Is this why media coverage is charging us?
We’ve been covering this story since it began, watching certain aspects unfold from a bigger picture perspective. Not being there was a tough part of the process because we couldn’t see and ask questions ourselves. Perhaps this is something we can begin doing once we raise enough viewer support here. But this didn’t stop us from seeking out a long time friend and independent journalist Luke Rudkowski, the founder of WeAreChange, who has been there in Tijuana for the past week.
We are witnessing Operation Mockingbird in real time as it shapes the public opinion on the death of President Bush
from Govt Slaves:
The things you won’t hear reported or even considered about the life of President Bush:
He was the grandson of the person responsible for assigning ammunition contracts in ww1.
His father was a Connecticut Senator who’s company was dissolved by congress for trading with the nazis in ww2.

For the first few hours after any new “bombshell” Russiagate story comes out, my social media notifications always light up with poorly written posts by liberal establishment loyalists saying things like “HAHAHA @caitoz this proves you wrong now will you FINALLY stop denying Russian collusion???” Then, when people start actually analyzing that story and noting that it comes nowhere remotely close to proving that Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election, those same people always forget to come back afterward and admit to me that they were wrong again.
MSNBC Guest: Dems Must ‘Stop Pandering To The White Working Class… That Isn’t The Future Of This Country’
by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:
Danielle Moodie-Mills told MSNBC host Chris Hayes on Wednesday that Democrats need to “stop pandering to the white working class” which is demographically becoming a minority because they’re not “the future of this country.”
After saying that “white Americans” and “conservative Americans” are “afraid of what’s coming down the pike” demographically, the Woke AF host said:
“What Democrats need to stop doing is stop pandering to the white working class as if they’re the only ones that are part of the working class. This is the problem. When we get into identity politics and we were told, after the 2016 election: ‘stop talking about identity politics, that’s what lost us the election.'”

- The Facts:The 2018 migrant caravan has become one of the most touchy subjects of the year. Thus far, it appears as though this is due to the media portrayal of the situation, which is highly politically motivated. We are not being told the truth.
- Reflect On:Are you aware of the political ploy the caravan has become to divide the public in a divide and conquer strategy? Are you able to discern the difference between what your heart is feeling on the matter vs what your mind is saying?
One of the most emotional topics of the year it seems, people are up in arms, on either side of politics, about the current migrant caravan awaiting at the US border.

Donald Trump just infests the minds of the night hosts of CNN. Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon pretty much said it was racist that President Donald Trump suggested a liberal Democrat couldn’t fit in with deep red Mississippi’s electoral fabric. This wasn’t going to be Alabama-Roy Moore reloaded, liberal America. It just wasn’t. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MI), who beat Democrat Mike Espy in the runoff this week, isn’t the best candidate. In fact, she’s very much flawed, but she doesn’t have sexual misconduct allegations hanging around her neck in the way Moore did. Even when she made some dumb remarks about a public hanging, the race was still very much in the GOP’s court. She wasn’t going to lose. So, yeah—Donald Trump was right: a liberal Democrat can’t fit in with Mississippi’s red state identity. Cuomo looped in with Lemon later that night. The runoff was this past Tuesday (via Newsbusters):
