    So I had no idea who Simmons was until I googled him. Not sure why he would be such a moron because he was super successful and now his empire might go to shit.

    DAMN… I’ve been waiting for this for a while now, ever since I found out he called President Trump a “f**king moron.” He’ll be replaced by Mike Pompeo whenever it happens, but I’m eager to see if Steven Mnuchin and James Mattis stay true to their “suicide pact” with Tillerson. The pact was that if any one of them was fired by Trump, the other 2 would resign as well. That way, if Trump knocked one of them out he would also be knocking out two others as well. What a disturbingly unstable yet still truly exciting time in American politics!

    “Joy Reid Lies About Bernie’s… Marriage?” – The Young Turks

    Joy Reid is a corporate shill and a genuine embarrassment to the sane members of the Democratic party. With Joy’s bizarre and at times sickening rhetoric, by dangerously steering many liberals towards supporting anti-progressive Democratic candidates backed by big corporate money who LOSE elections (see: Hillary Clinton), along with her fellow #StillWithHer liar Samantha Bee, have both become tragically oblivious and ironic gifts for all Republicans, be they generically corrupt like Paul Ryan or insanely far-right like Steve Bannon. Dear lord while I am a Democrat sometimes I seriously worry for the future of my party, and of the future of the progressive left in America in general. 🙁

    I thought I would share this comment I found in a YouTube comment section regarding the GOP tax plan because of how perfect it is:

    “Trickle down” has been working perfectly for the top 1%. According to Bernie Sanders, ever since 2009, 99% of new income (pre-tax, pre-transfer income growth) is going to the top 1%! Yes, it’s so shocking that it’s almost unbelievable, but many fact-checkers have examined his claim and found that it’s totally accurate. No doubt Trump’s tax plan will make the situation even worse. So now “trickle down” is like 100 guys ordered 100 slices of pizza, the first guy has already taken 99 slices, but he still wants the last slice for himself, so he tells the other 99 guys “Don’t worry, I will be so full that I will sh*t undigested pizza, you can eat that, you won’t go hungry. I call it ‘sh*t-down’ pizza distribution plan.”

    Economics is not Bernie’s strong suit.   However, Bernie’s run could be over as he now has a serious challenger:

    LOS ANGELES (WCAX) A gossip site is spreading the idea that Hollywood actor Randy Quaid will challenge Sen. Bernie Sanders to become Vermont’s next senator.
    The site Deadline cited a tweet from Quaid Nov. 30 that said, “Some very powerful people representing a super pac have approached me about running against Bernie Sanders for senator. 100%” That tweet no longer appears on Quaid’s Twitter timeline. And there were reports Quaid would base a reality series on the long shot bid to unseat Sanders.
    Quaid is responding to the rumors on Twitter with #FAKENEWS and a link to the story, but no clarification on whether or not he actually plans to run.
    Quaid and his wife, Evi, moved to Vermont in 2015.

    Non-mainstream news, and it is real:

    “President Duterte Bans Vaccines in Philipines: ‘Vaccinations Cause Autism’ Filipino president says drug company found ‘direct link’ between vaccines and Autism

    President Duterte has suspended all vaccination programs in Philipines, vowing to protect his people from the dangers of vaccines after finding a “direct link” with Autism. Mr. Duterte blocked its school-based dengue immunization program on Friday after learning of the health risks saying the vaccine Dengvaxia was “not for my people.” French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi had previously warned that Dengvaxia had been found to pose health risks in people not previously infected.

    Further clinical studies revealed that the vaccine could prevent a repeat infection for those who had previously had dengue, but for those who had not had dengue, and were vaccinated and later became infected, the disease could be become “more severe” and lead to other major health issues such as Autism and heart failure when administered to children.”

    I have heard that California has mandatory vaccinations…Big Brother has arrived, and the total police state is establishing itself,.  How stupid can people be?

    As stupid as Australia and any other jurisdiction that has taken away a person’s right to choose.  Nothing but pawns of Big Pharma, and of course, money.

    The IOC has barred Russian athletes their coaches and officials from the 2018 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES. I guess test tampering and rampant doping doesn’t always pay off. Putin has interfered with the Games before. Wonder what if anything he’ll say or do. Also should be interesting to whom they extend exceptions to.

    This propaganda  is brought to you by the Centre for Disease Creation, and they are very effective at it.  Don’t forget this quote from the vaccine pusher, Bill Gates  “Depopulation through vaccination”.

    Again, follow the money…the CDC is run by Big Pharma, and they would never lie for profit, would they?  Both the boards of directors of the CDC and the FDA are Big Pharma representatives and that is an incredible conflict of interest.

    There is no such thing as Herd Immunity, but there certainly is such a thing as Herd Mentality.

    Time’s PERSON OF THE YEAR is:

    “The Silence Breakers”

    I figured that either Trump again or the #MeToo Movement would have the best chance for this. Major moment for the movement and the best option for a cover story.
