In the highly anticipated 1996 heavyweight championship bout between two giants of boxing, Evander Holyfield pulled off the upset against Iron Mike Tyson. This set the stage for the even more highly anticipated rematch. Holyfield vs Tyson II, aka, “The Sound and The Fury” would become, at that time, the highest grossing boxing match in the history of boxing.
The only thing America loves more than watching a fight between hated rivals…….is watching the rematch.
Trump vs Clinton II, “The Recount”, will no doubt capture American’s attention. It should be enough to keep the country distracted, divided, and filled with rage until at least Christmas. Then what will we fight about next?!
I wonder what the elite will do while America is yet again engrossed in the public spectacle.

The FBI May Have Run Not Just One But 24 Dark Web Child-Porn Websites
The sites are thought to have accounted for roughly half of all child porn websites on the dark web.
The FBI has a controversial new method of fighting child pornography: distributing child pornography. As part of “Operation Pacifier,” the federal law-enforcement agency ran a dark-web child porn clearinghouse called The Playpen for two weeks, delivering malware to any site visitors, in a scheme that was revealed last summer. But it turns out that site may not have been the only dark-web site that the FBI maintained. According to documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the agency was actually authorized to takeover 23 child-pornography websites in addition to The Playpen.
Pentagon Paid for Fake ‘Al Qaeda’ Videos
A controversial foreign PR firm known for representing unsavory characters was paid millions by the Pentagon to create fake terrorist videos.
Lord Bell, who stood down as chairman of Bell Pottinger earlier this year, told the Sunday Times that the deployment of tracking devices described by Wells was “perfectly possible,” but he was personally unaware of it.
At a certain point, running kiddie porn sites and terrorist recruitment videos does more harm than good–and I don’t much believe in unintended consequences (or, for that matter, bizarre coincidences–see below).
Reminds me of the exposé in The New York Times and on Judge Nap’s Fox show (one of his last) that FBI stings were responsible for the vast majority of terrorist busts.
Bet you didn’t know that the World Trade Center bombing in 1993 was an FBI sting operation–they actually provided live explosives! And the Oklahoma City Bombing had FBI operatives deeply involved.
This also reminds me of a “bizarre coincidence” in which an FBI bomb technician who worked on the OKC investigation, Donald Sachtleben, blew the whistle on the second underwear bomber–also an intelligence asset, but for the British–then was arrested for distributing child porn…
And don’t even get me started on the first underwear bomber...
What a shocker! Not that Castro shorted out……that Hillary’s campaign will take part in the recount. The whole reason Jill Stein initiated the process is so that Hillary could say she accepted the elections results……that she took the high road until she was dragged kicking and fainting into to the recount process. You know what they say, when they go low……Hillary Clinton thinks we must all be high……. not to see through this.
Four days before the election, I wrote an article about various signals we were receiving from Obama and Melania and spelled out by Deep Stater Vernon Jordan. Immediately after the election, I predicted that Melania’s First Lady cause célèbre would be cyberbullying, which would play right into the blueprint Jordan laid out. What I didn’t realize was that Jordan’s article in The Wall Street Journal that day was launching the censorship agenda in real time. Here is my article from November 4–check it out:
Recently, President Obama said he wanted a truthiness test for information. (To hear it, click the link and go to chronomark 1:00:00 and listen for about four and a half minutes.) I believe he was focusing on scientific information (climate change in particular, of course), but he made an interesting analogy with the news media.
We are going to have to rebuild, within this wild, wild west of information flow, some sort of curating function…
It used to be there were three television stations, and Walter Cronkite was there…generally people trusted a basic body of information…
There has to be some sort of way we can sort through information that passes some sort of truthiness test.
This wasn’t quite as bad as it sounds out of context (almost!), but I recalled his words while reading the newspaper today and it made me think Obama was revealing a broader mindset that is about to be rolled out.
The first article I read was about a recent appearance by Melania Trump during which she, no doubt sweetly and innocently (I mean that, I’m not being sarcastic),
lamented an increasingly coarse culture in which users of social media, especially children, belittle each other.
“Our culture has gotten too mean and too tough, especially to children and teenagers,” Mrs. Trump said. “We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.”
I didn’t think too much about Melania’s comments and didn’t put them together with Obama’s until later, when in that same section of the paper I read a piece contributed by Vernon Jordan (remember him? he was a big Bill Clinton advisor & long-time Bilderberger), which paralleled the recent words of both President Obama and Mrs. Trump:
The great new[s](sic) institutions of the 20th century, print newspapers, the evening broadcast news, the trusted anchorman, are fading relics. In their place we have unlimited information, unfiltered, all the time….
Yesterday’s news institutions were far from perfect. But they served an important civic role. They served as filters of information, sorting out facts from lies, and truth from innuendo. They gleaned the significant from the frivolous….
[P]eople in the technology, media and telecom industry…must ensure that we are protected….
We need to use technology’s capacity to clearly, and quickly, delineate facts from lies—regardless of their source, and to develop media that require civility and respect when people exchange opinions.”
To reiterate Jordan’s entreaty: we need the media (formerly known as “the free press”) to filter information and to separate “facts from lies,” “truth from innuendo” and “the significant from the frivolous.” That is, we need our information censored and prioritized by corporate media. He also urges that we “require civility and respect when people exchange opinions”–that is, the tone and content of discourse must be controlled.
Not to nitpick on ol’ Vern, but I might also point out that the “important civic role” of the free press was not “to serve as filters of information,” as he argues, but as disseminators of it. The last thing civil society (to borrow a globalist phrase) needs is to be “protected” from unfiltered information by Big Tech, which seems quickly to be entering the top tier of the corpo-governmental continuum also known as the Military Industrial Complex.
Total Information Awareness is a two-way street. The motto of that now-underground government program was “Information Is Power.” That means they want to have all the information they can while we have as little as we will accept. To gather all possible information, the powers-that-be are instituting the Surveillance State. (I pegged Obama “the Surveillance President” while he was still in his first term.) On the flipside, to control our information, they need censorship.
Given what Obama, Melania & Jordan are hinting at right now, looks like Hillary is being positioned as the Censorship President. I guess it’s time for Big Government to take on the Big Daddy of Constitutional rights: First for a reason! The soon-to-be-late, great First Amendment.

CNN’s headline story on the morning of Friday, November 25th put Dylann Roof back into the national spotlight. For those working hard to demonize anyone branded with the “ALT Right” or “White Nationalists” label, the timing couldn’t be more convenient.
The demonization of the “Alt Right/White Nationalists” group, has amped up since the election. I previously predicted that after the election a violent incident would be blamed on someone branded an Alt Right extremist. Their purpose in doing this would be to increase the public’s fear of domestic terror and to direct the public’s aggression towards the Alt Right. What I didn’t consider is that they might do this using an old event instead.
Dylann Roof fits the role of a White Nationalist demon perfectly. He’s what the mainstream media wants the public to think of when they think of the Alt Right, White Nationalism, or anything associated with Trump.
I believe that the media will make Roof the face of the Alt Right. The public will be reminded of the Dylann Roof narrative, and they’ll be lead to believe that under a Trump administration, stories like that of Dylann Roof will become common place.
To believe that the Dylan Roof’s of the world will run rampant under a Trump administration is a totally insane and irrational thing to believe. But that’s the purpose of demonization propaganda; to bypass all logic and reason, and appeal directly to fear and hate.
The media has found the face of their Alt Right demon.
The prospect of Giuliani being Secretary of State is, horrifically, not dead. I’m no fan of Romney–he is obviously a play-actor who comes off like the gentlest guy in the world but is fully immersed in the Deep State, from his family’s decades-long involvement in politics to his clearly staged ranting about Trump, this guy is likely a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Giuliani, on the other hand, is a wolf in wolf’s clothing, and that’s the absolute worst thing you could have in the country’s top diplomat. Would you want this guy as the last barrier between the United States and war?
An article in The Wall Street Journal today presents the problem with Giuliani’s candidacy as having potential for cronyism and conflicts of interest–no doubt a very real risk, as we’ve seen before–but the potential for World War III on this guy’s watch is a far greater risk.
Rudy Giuliani Lobbies to Be Secretary of State
Former New York City mayor says his experience makes him uniquely qualified
After leaving the mayoral office in 2001, Mr. Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners, a management-consulting and security firm that advises companies and foreign governments on policing, security planning and counterterrorism….
Mr. Giuliani has been an outspoken proponent of regime change in Iran and scrapping the nuclear accord reached with Tehran last year. He has regularly appeared at events supporting an Iranian opposition group, called the Mujahedin-e Khalq, which the U.S. State Department designated as a terrorist organization from 1997 through 2012. His speaking fees for those events ranged from $25,000 to $40,000….
Mr. Giuliani said those concerns were unfounded and unfair. He said “90%” of the work undertaken by the firm is done on behalf of companies, not governments. “I don’t even know how to peddle influence,” he said.

Here is the book laying out Trump’s philosophy of loyalty & revenge: The Making of Donald Trump
There’s also: TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. Light & kinda funny.
Trump’s campaign pretty much followed the strategies in this book: The Art of The Deal
Giuliani is not a good candidate for the chief diplomat of the United States, Secretary of State. Listen to the minute starting 14:50 in hour 1: RNC Show.
The people demand a “Conservative Welfare State.” Really?
Steve Bannon on Politics as War
The Trump adviser talks about the winning campaign and says the political attacks against him and Breitbart News are ‘just nonsense.’
“It’s not important to be known,” [Mr. Bannon] says in a telephone interview Thursday night, among his first public comments since the election. “It was Lao Tzu who said that with the best leaders, when the work is accomplished, the people will say ‘We have done this ourselves.’ That’s how I’ve led.”
Pollsters Face Hurdles in Changing Landscape
Pollsters rethink how they operate after a string of astonishing misses around the globe this year
“A corporate market research project, you don’t know if your polling is shit because there’s no election day,” Dan Wagner, head of Democratic research firm Civis Analytics, which also conducts nonpolitical surveys, said in an interview prior to the election. In politics, “there’s a day where you’re going to find out whether you were right or whether you’re an idiot.”
Trump’s NATO Demand Clashes With EU Budgets
Countries under pressure to narrow deficits are bracing for a U.S. call to spend more on defense
“There’s enough money,” [Bruno Lété, a defense expert at The German Marshall Fund of the United States in Brussels] said. “The problem is that the Europeans have been very ineffective. We have 28 navies, 28 air forces, and 28 armies…. The big problem is the issue of unity. There is no unity.”
According to Wikipedia, the EU has 510 million people and GDP of $17.1 trillion. The US has 325 million people and GDP of $18.6 trillion. By pushing NATO to be a unified military power, we would be creating a multi-polar world that might lead to a balance of power but might also be handily stitched up into a One World system. I’m all for folding up NATO, but not for egging them on to escalate worldwide militarization nor to further consolidate regionally–as a libertarian, I am not a fan of increasing governmental centralization. It is interesting to note, by way of comparison, Russia has 146.5 million people and a GDP of $3.7 trillion, and China has 1.4 BILLION people and a GDP of $20.9 trillion. It is also interesting to note relative defense spending among those four entities: US $581 billion, EU $170 billion,* China $129 billion, Russia $70 billion. So the next time you hear some war hawk ask for more defense spending, you gotta wonder what kind of incompetent system spends more than everyone else combined (some of whom are allies!) and still can’t get the job done. (*EU defense spending total estimated as Germany, France, UK & Italy.)
Speaking of China, this is a must watch…
