Assange Masterminded 2016 Clinton Leaks from Ecuadorian Embassy, Report Claims

from Sputnik News:

On Monday, CNN published a report based on “exclusive documents”, said to have been obtained by the media outlet, claiming that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange worked with alleged Russian hackers and other intelligence officials in a bid to damage Hillary Clinton’s reputation and ruin her 2016 presidential run.

The documents are said to have originated from security companies conducting surveillance on Assange on behalf of Ecuadorian officials. The cited documents were not published by CNN.

Michigan Swing Voters Blast 2020 Democrats on Immigration: ‘We Need to Focus on Americans’

by John Binder, Breitbart:

Michigan swing voters are, by a majority, siding with President Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda and blasting plans by 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidates to open the United States-Mexico border, decriminalize illegal immigration, and provide free healthcare to all illegal aliens.

An Axios report which chronicled a focus group of Michigan swing voters — those who voted for Mitt Romney in 2012, but switched to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and those who voted for Barack Obama twice, but switched to vote for Trump in 2016 — finds that by a majority these voters prefer Trump’s low-immigration, high-wage economic model as opposed to the 2020 Democrats’ plans to allow an unlimited flow of foreign workers to the country, legally and illegally.

“They say if we come to the United States we can find work,” one illegal confesses

Illegal immigrants tell a local news reporter they came to the United States because they saw advertisements online, in newspapers and on TV talking about the loads of free handouts that await them in the United States.

US Police Have Killed Over 1,200% More Citizens Than Mass Shooters Since 2015

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Tragically, in America, mass shootings — in which murdering psychopaths go on rampages in public spaces — have claimed the lives of 339 people since 2015. While this number is certainly shocking and far too high, during this same time frame, police in America have claimed the lives of 4,355 citizens.

While some of these citizens were armed and dangerous, others were innocent, unarmed, and include small children. Daniel Shaver was one of these people whose life was brought to a screeching halt as he begged on his knees for police not to shoot him. Despite being innocent and unarmed, this father of three was murdered in cold blood by Philip Brailsford who was never held accountable and allowed to retire from the police force with his pension.

JOHN KIRIAKOU: If Dan Coats Leaves, No Tears Goodbye

by John Kiriakou, Consortium News:

President Donald Trump apparently is weighing the notion of firing Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, with whom he has clashed repeatedly over the past two-and-a-half years.  Coats has publicly contradicted Trump on multiple occasions, incurring his wrath, but reportedly kept his job because of support from Vice President Mike Pence, a fellow Indianan.  According to some press speculation, that may be coming to an end.

Congress courageously sticks US taxpayers with a $6 trillion liability

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

There seems to be an unwritten rule with lawmakers that, every time they create a terrible piece of legislation, they give it the most noble-sounding name.

The USA PATRIOT Act from 2001 was a great example. It sounds great. Who wouldn’t love a law named for Patriots?

And yet that was easily among the most freedom-killing laws ever passed in US history, giving the federal government nearly unlimited authority to wage war and spy on its own people.

New CNN Assange Smear Piece Is Amazingly Dishonest, Even For CNN

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

CNN has published an unbelievably brazen and dishonest smear piece on Julian Assange, easily the most egregious article of its kind since the notoriously bogus Assange-Manafort report by The Guardian last year. It contains none of the “exclusive” documents which it claims substantiate its smears, relying solely on vague unsubstantiated assertions and easily debunked lies to paint the WikiLeaks founder in a negative light.

California Committee Approves Measure to Create Banking Alternative for Cannabis Industry, Bypass Federal Reserve

by Michael Maharrey, Activist Post:

Last week, a second California Assembly committee unanimously passed a bill that would establish limited state-chartered banks to serve the cannabis industry. Final passage of this legislation would remove a major federal roadblock in front of the developing industry in the state and further nullify federal prohibition in practice.

Sen. Bob Hertzberg, (D-Van Nuys), along with a bipartisan coalition of eight cosponsors, filed Senate Bill 51 (SB51) on Dec. 4.  The legislation would create a self-contained banking system for the cannabis industry in California.
