    You gotta spare a thought for Norbert Hofer. The guy had the best of intentions for the Austrian people. Watching his concession speech was tough. On a positive note, his party still has a substantial amount of seats within parliament, and the next general election will be held in 2018.

    This is a small roadblock. The freedom movement will only continue to gain support as the pro-EU shill (van der bellen) tries to destabilize Austria.

    Norbert Hofer’s party has been gaining support for a couple of years, and will do so until the next election in Austria, in less than 2 years. A couple of more years under EU control should move Austria towards independence and sovereignty.

    His opposition implored Clinton-esque tactics to steal the election in May. Hofer’s party exposed this, won the right to a second general election, yet they seem to have lost support. I find that curious.

    Thankfully, Norbert is young and plans to run again in 2022.

    Fathers and Grand-fathers of ‘Deplorables’ Turned War Around After Pearl Harbor

    Winning: TIME Trump ‘Person of Year’

    Denzel Washington Hammers Mainstream Media for Selling ‘BS’
    “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” Washington told The Hill at the premiere of his latest film Tuesday night. “Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice you’ll get good at — including BS.”

    Michael Moore: ‘Disrupt the Inauguration’

    Michael Moore is an idiot, and so is Springsteen, Madonna, Adele, RBDowneyJr, MacFarlane, Whedon, and every other deluded stooge who promoted Hillary. If you really wish to alienate half of your fan base you really are not that smart, or, keep your elitist ‘bubble reality’ to yourself.

    PETITION: Defend Independent Media From ‘Fake News’ Attacks
    Ask President-elect Donald Trump to take a stand against the establishment’s desperate move to label independent media as ‘fake news’.
    This is a red level emergency.
    Infowars, Breitbart, the Drudge Report and other independent sources are destroying the mainstream media narrative like never before, and the establishment is getting desperate.
    In an effort to try and censor the liberty movement and free speech, the mainstream media is now attempting to label legitimate news sources like Infowars as “fake news” to push towards a government-led shut down of Infowars.com.
    The Washington Post has even gone as far as to label sites like Infowars as “Russian propaganda fake news” web sites, exemplifying the last attempt of a dying media conglomerate to force out any and all dissenting voices.
    Even more concerning, the United States House of Representatives quietly passed legislation targeting ‘Russian propaganda’ websites.
    But the calls for censorship do not end with the United States.
    The European Union is demanding that Twitter, YouTube and Facebook censor “illegal hate speech” within 24 hours and content that includes so-called “fake news,” a term so broad that it includes perfectly legitimate news content.
    Microsoft, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have also announced that they will be ramping up efforts to remove “extremist” content from their websites by using a shared database of offenders.
    And perhaps most importantly, Twitter has recently gone on record stating the company will ban President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s Twitter account if he were to violate the company’s “hate speech” rules.
    We are calling on and asking President-Elect Donald J. Trump to take a stand against the establishment media’s “fake news” attacks and to stop the impending censorship of independent media platforms like Infowars.com and others.

    James O’Keefe of Project Veritas declared victory over the “corrupt scum” of the mainstream media during a short but powerful presentation at David Horowitz’s Freedom Center’s “Restoration Weekend” confab recently.

    Speaking to a packed house of prominent members of the conservative-libertarian movement, O’Keefe highlighted some recent missions masterfully executed by his gold-standard team of investigative journalists.
    “Social media is now more powerful than the media,” O’Keefe proclaimed. “The media is dead – we killed it.”
    “These people are such corrupt scum, but the good news is – they lost and the facts prove it.”
    “People are leaving the mainstream media because they want to know the truth,” he added.
    Project Veritas played a critical role in the 2016 election, exposing some of the deepest political corruption ever revealed by undercover reporters.
    Operatives of O’Keefe’s team embedded inside the Clinton campaign for over a year to capture damning admissions, ranging from Hillary Clinton’s directive to deploy costumed birddoggers to antagonize Trump supporters – which was boasted about by Robert Creamer, a close friend of Barack Obama and husband of U.S. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, to confirmation that the Democratic Party has been illegally bussing voters to the polls for the last 50 years.

    Sorry, can’t stop…lots more never ever shown on CNN etc.
    Accepting everything you hear/see on One News site is
    not an aspect of critical thinking.
    Obtuse.

    Trump already fulfilling ‘America First’ promises

    Former – and embattled – Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski praised Donald Trump’s monumental successes in the first month since the incoming president won the election.

    “Donald Trump, in the first four weeks of his presidency, has done more to help this country than I think Barack Obama has done in the last four years,” Lewandowski said. “Now I know that’s a strong statement, but what we see is a commitment to our military again; a commitment to our businesses to reduce the amount of government regulations so that they can continue to grow and grow our economy – not at one percent, not at two percent, but at four percent, five percent.”

    “Lower the corporate tax rate so that our country can be competitive in a global marketplace. Look – his presidency is summed up in two words: America First.”
    Trump has already negotiated deals with HVAC manufacturer Carrier and Taiwanese tech giant Foxconn that could preserve and create well over 50,000 jobs on U.S. soil in the coming years.
    Last month, Apple began exploring the possibility of moving some production to the United States, and as a key supplier to Apple, Foxconn’s investment in U.S. manufacturing could begin to fulfill Trump’s heavily mocked assertion that, “We’re going to get Apple to build their damn computers and things in this country instead of in other countries.”

    Propping up radical and repugnant “news” sources is just as “obnoxious” and “obtuse.” I’ll continue to post as many CNN links as I see fit to do.

    Trump won Time Person of the Year. Man just keeps winning

    Take comfort in the fact that the M in Time makes it look like Trump has horns.

    On another note, I saw on Twitter (so I don’t know if this is real or fake – my God, can you believe it’s come down to us wondering if our news is real or fake – what’s the world coming to?) where Ohio apparently is trying to ban all abortions after 6 weeks. I did not see this in the Times nor did CNN mention it the four hours yesterday afternoon I had them on. But of course, everyone was talking about Leonardo meeting with both Trump and Ivanka about climate change. The rights of women are s-l-o-w-l-y starting to disappear and no one, especially other women, seem to be doing anything about it. Like how people in Germany kinda laughed off a certain infamous person in history and all the ideas he and his administration had back then.

    Trump’s pick to head the EPA is Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt who is a long-time enemy of the EPA, a non-believer in humans causing global warming, and a major ally of big oil, coal and natural gas. Let the raping of the environment commence.

    And to those who think Trump is a friend to the underpaid working man his labor secretary pick is Andy Puzder. He is the CEO of the fast food chains Hardees and Carl’s Jr. and a critic of minimum wage increases and work safety regulations. Seems Trump supports management over labor but that should be no surprise.

    People foolishly believed Trump was going to drain the swamp but he is just turning over running the swamp to big business and Wall Street is staying in the game too.

    The South Korean parliament impeached President Park Geun-hye, and stripped her of all power Friday amid fury over prosecution claims that she had handed over extraordinary power to a corrupt friend.

    Interestingly enough, one of my dearest friends (who is South Korean) told me that Park’s popularity has been rapidly declining. The people think she has made life harder for them from an economic standpoint.

    It fills my heart with joy to see more and more countries awaken from their matrix-esque slumber.

    The freedom movement continues!

    Way to go, South Korea!

    Republican John Kennedy is projected to win the Louisiana Senate runoff election, giving the GOP a 52-seat majority in the upper chamber.
    Kennedy, Louisiana’s state treasurer, defeated Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell (D) on Saturday in the race to replace retiring Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), according to The Associated Press.
    Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair Sharon Day heralded Kennedy’s victory Saturday evening, saying it “caps a year of historic Republican wins up and down the ballot.”
    “And with 52 seats in the U.S. Senate, we are excited for Republicans to confirm a conservative Supreme Court justice and begin working with President-elect Trump to pass an agenda of change for the American people,” she said in a statement.

    Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN:
    “It’s pretty clear to me that WikiLeaks was designed to hurt Clinton.”
    Very good, Sen. Graham, as Assange stated that he was trying to keep Hillary out of the White House by releasing damaging emails…

    and the real ‘Fake News’ is that the Russians did it!

    A hole has been blown in the Democratic Party, and mainstream media’s narrative, that Russia was behind the leak of DNC emails to Wikileaks.
    On Sunday, a former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, said he has met the person who gave the DNC emails and it was not the Russians.
    “I know who leaked them,” Murray told The Guardian. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.
    Murray, who is a close associate of Wikileaks head Julian Assange, explained it further on his website.
    “As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two,” he wrote.
    But, as Murray pointed out, the press is going along with the narrative that Russia delivered the presidency to Donald Trump and will attack any media source that doesn’t toe the line.
    The MSM are masters of FAKE NEWS, and it’s a daily assault of BS.
    “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” Anon.
