The Michigan Republican Party filed emergency motions with the U. S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals early on Tuesday, seeking a stay of a federal judge’s order that started a statewide presidential recount in Michigan on Monday and asking for an “en banc” review of that order by all the judges of the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati. As the DFP notes, normally, appeals go to a three-judge panel of the court. A stay from the 6th Circuit would halt the Michigan recount until appeals judges have a chance to review Monday’s order by U. S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith.
The question for the appeals court to consider, lawyers for the Michigan GOP said, is whether Green Party candidate Jill Stein is constitutionally entitled to a statewide recount “without any evidence that the election was affected … by fraud or other impropriety.” The party gave notice Monday it would appeal the ruling Goldsmith made after a rare Sunday hearing in Detroit. It’s not clear whether or how quickly the 6th Circuit will take up the case.
Goldsmith cited a threat that unless the recount started at noon Monday, there was a credible threat that Michigan votes would not be counted, because the recount would not be completed by Dec. 13 – a deadline set out in federal law that guarantees the electors Michigan certifies for the electoral college will be accepted by Congress.
Republicans argue Stein, as a fourth-place finisher to President-elect Donald Trump, has no grounds to request a costly recount, that she waited too long to request the recount, and that the federal courts shouldn’t be getting involved in a question of state law.

Last week, a technology reporter for The Washington Post named Craig Timberg ran an incredible story. It has no analog that I can think of in modern times. Headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say,” the piece promotes the work of a shadowy group that smears some 200 alternative news outlets as either knowing or unwitting agents of a foreign power, including popular sites like Truthdig and Naked Capitalism.
The thrust of Timberg’s astonishingly lazy report is that a Russian intelligence operation of some kind was behind the publication of a “hurricane” of false news reports during the election season, in particular stories harmful to Hillary Clinton. The piece referenced those 200 websites as “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.”
The piece relied on what it claimed were “two teams of independent researchers,” but the citing of a report by the longtime anticommunist Foreign Policy Research Institute was really window dressing.
The meat of the story relied on a report by unnamed analysts from a single mysterious “organization” called PropOrNot – we don’t know if it’s one person or, as it claims, over 30 – a “group” that seems to have been in existence for just a few months.
It was PropOrNot’s report that identified what it calls “the list” of 200 offending sites. Outlets as diverse as AntiWar.com, LewRockwell.com and the Ron Paul Institute were described as either knowingly directed by Russian intelligence, or “useful idiots” who unwittingly did the bidding of foreign masters.

When we talk about declining jobs and economic burdens, the narrative conditions many to blame some ‘other’ political or cultural group. But perhaps the least talked about threat to jobs comes from the government itself in the form of occupational licensing.
A new analysis from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) found that in Wisconsin alone, the rapid expansion of licensing requirements over the past 20 years caused 31,000 fewer jobs to be had, and cost consumers almost $2 billion.
The study, the first of its kind to examine the economic and social impact of the more than 240 different types of credentials issued by DSPS, shows a dramatic surge in the number of regulated occupations and license holders. Across the country, a bipartisan consensus – from the Obama White House to the Koch Brothers – has formed that occupational licensing is arguably one of the most substantial barriers to opportunity in America today. While some credentialing serves to protect public health and safety, much is rank protectionism – a device to ‘fence in’ those who already have permission to work and ‘fence out’ those who do not.
As this writer posited earlier this year, government licensing is just another extortion racket with no real purpose in making things safer or better.

This past Friday, Reuters published one of the most important articles I’ve read in a while relative to the attention being paid to the issue. It details a streamlined practice through which Chinese ‘education’ companies essentially bribe college admissions officers at top U. S. universities to accept tuition paying Chinese students. It’d be bad enough if these students were actually qualified, but in many cases these companies complete the entirety of the applications for the students, including writing their essays. It’s not uncommon for these student-clients to never see their own applications.
Naturally, these companies couldn’t pull off their sleazy scam without willing American partners. Enter Thomas Benson and Stephen Gessner, two eager-beaver members of our nation’s celebrated – earn as much money as possible however possible without regard to the negative consequences to your fellow Americans – class. The entire story will make you sick, and it’s just further proof of how cronyism, bribery and a complete lack of ethics has fully penetrated into virtually every single facet of American life. It’s symptomatic of the debased, crooked Banana Republic economy we have become.

Following disappointing results from the initial recount efforts in Pennsylvania, CBS reports Jill Stein’s Green Party is dropping its court case seeking a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election, blaming a lack of funds.
As we noted earlier, according to Philly Voice, an updated count Friday by state election officials shows Trump’s lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton has shrunk from 71,000 to 49,000. If this new number is accurate, Trump’s lead is at 0.8 percent, down from more than 1 percent. That is still shy of Pennsylvania’s 0.5 percent trigger for an automatic statewide recount.
On Monday, Jill Stein of the Green Party filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania seeking a statewide recount of presidential votes in a continuation of her mission to contest the election results in three key voting states. But now, wanted to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated, as CBS reports, The Green Party is dropping its case…
The decision came Saturday, two days before a court hearing in the case. Lawyers for the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case say they can’t afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by Monday at 5 p.m.
However, Green Party-backed efforts to analyze election software in scattered precincts are continuing.

President-elect Donald Trump recently selected KT McFarland to be Deputy National Security Advisor.
The KT stands for Kathleen Troia. She was a Fox News National Security Analyst and before that, she served in national security posts in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.
National Memo described her as an ‘Anti-Muslim Putin fan who supports torture.’
While that kind of headline fits right into a liberal leftist agenda, McFarland could more rightly be described as an anti-whistleblower, pro-torture globalist… and that’s in her own words.
Back in 2010, she wrote an article for FOX News titled, ‘Yes, WikiLeaks Is a Terrorist Organization and the Time to Act Is NOW’.

There is another side to the JFK assassination that does not actually negate some of the conspiracies that surround CIA or military involvement. It may actually expose that Oswald was the patsy who was out to kill John Connally, not JFK. Nevertheless, the events are still clouded by bureaucrats.
After Lee Harvey Oswald delivered those fatal shots in Dallas, a Secret Service officer named Mike Howard was dispatched to Oswald’s apartment. Agent Howard found a little green address book. In this book on page 17, under the heading, ‘I WILL KILL,’ Oswald listed four men: James Hosty, an FBI agent; Edwin Walker, a right-wing general; and Vice President Richard Nixon. However, at the very top of that list was the governor of Texas, John Connally, where Oswald drew a dagger with blood drops dripping downward. Oswald motive was that he had written to Connally asking for help and got the typical bureaucratic reply letter.

Over the last 40 years, the assault on Western culture and civilization has taken people so far away from lucid thinking and logic, they don’t even know this discipline exists at all.
What has replaced it is entertainment.
It seems that hundreds of gimmicks and machines are now necessary, in order to keep the attention of children in school. There is a fear that without these ‘up-to-date’ items, the kids will drop into a coma or walk out of the classroom.
Well, entertainment has an interesting side effect. It enables humans to jump quickly from one moment to another, leaving the last moment in the dust, forgotten. In other words, all-pervasive entertainment contributes mightily to short attention spans.
I’ve encountered this phenomenon as a lecturer. Standing at the podium, I’ve seen light bulbs of discovery go off above people’s heads as I explain the specifics of medical fraud.
And then, an hour later, standing in the lobby, surrounded by audience members, I’ve heard these same newly enlightened people ask questions that reveal they’d heard nothing of what I’d just said inside the hall.

Main stream media stalwart publisher, The Washington Post, claims those sites that anyone who disagrees with or challenges the elite’s narrative is part of a massive Russian propaganda consortium, despite a total absence of any evidence. The worst offender of all forms of propaganda is the elite’s corporation, aka the federal government.
False flags are the federal government’s go-to schemes for defrauding the public in every way imaginable. Here are but a few. Not covered here are the myriad deaths of those who get in the way of the elite’s narrative, including journalists.
False Flag Crisis Actors
This page simply shows the crisis actors who have been used in several False Flag event, which proves that the events are controlled by the evil ones.
Here is the same crisis actor who was supposedly a former classmate of the alleged Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza; who now is the sister of James Foley who was supposedly beheaded on the fake video.

On Thursday, December 1, a vital Supreme Court order is set to go into effect that dramatically expands the surveillance power of federal agents. The impending alteration to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure softens the legal requirements for obtaining search and seizure warrants that grant the government remote access to individual’s computers and phones.
In the past, law enforcement was required to obtain a warrant from a judge within the jurisdiction where the proposed search was going take place. Under this new system, however, if an individual is using technology to conceal their location, the warrant is considered valid regardless of jurisdiction. A single authorization will have the potential to validate millions of searches on private devices. Any journalist, activist, or whistleblower who values privacy and uses tools like Freenet or the Tor network will fall directly into the crosshairs.
As USA Today summarized, the rule change was ‘sought by the Justice Department, adopted by the U. S. Federal Courts, and approved on April 28 by the Supreme Court without much fanfare.’
These changes have been on the fast track since the FBI had evidence thrown out in a recent child pornography case. The defendant was using the Tor network to conceal his IP address and operating a child pornography site known as Playpen. The Department of Justice and FBI refused to disclose the legal process used to gain access to the evidence, likely because they did not follow proper legal protocols. As a result, at least some of their evidence was rejected by the court.

Two days ago, a former Citigroup employee, Erin Daly, filed a 27-page lawsuit in Federal Court in Manhattan alleging gender discrimination and unlawful termination. On the same day, November 28, Daly simultaneously filed a complaint with the Department of Labor alleging she was retaliated against by Citigroup after she reported ‘violations of insider trading laws’ to lawyers at the bank. It is illegal for U. S. banks to retaliate against whistleblowers.
According to the Federal lawsuit, less than two weeks after Daly reported the insider trading law violations to internal lawyers, she was terminated from the bank.
These are extremely serious charges against a mega Wall Street bank that would have gone belly up in 2008 had it not received $45 billion in equity infusions from the taxpayer, over $300 billion in asset guarantees from the government and more than $2.5 trillion in secret, cumulative loans from the Federal Reserve at below-market interest rates from 2007 to 2010.

In what is not the first lawsuit (and certainly won’t be the last) by naive shareholders to go after former unicorn darling-turned-fraud Theranos, its founder Elizabeth Holmes, and COO Ramesh Balwani, the co-founder of prominent dot com investment bank Robertson Stephens, Robert Colman, accused Theranos and Holmes of making false and misleading claims about its operations and technology while soliciting money from investors.
The pioneering Silicon Valley deal maker invested in the blood-testing company in late 2013 through venture-capital fund Lucas Venture Group, according to the lawsuit. The suit was filed in federal court in San Francisco and seeks class-action status. The WSJ first reported of the legal action.
In the lawsuit Colman says that he agreed to invest in Theranos after Lucas Venture Group founder Donald A. Lucas wrote in a Sept. 9, 2013, letter that Theranos invited the venture-capital firm to purchase $15 million in stock. As the WSJ adds, Lucas said it was part of a ‘follow-on extension’ of a funding round that began in 2010, the lawsuit states. On the same day in 2013, Theranos and Walgreens announced in a joint news release what they called ‘a long-term partnership to bring access to Theranos’ new lab testing service through Walgreens pharmacies nationwide.’ Walgreens is now a unit of Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.
From the filing:

California is being used to justify handing the crown to Hillary despite the fact she conceded claiming she has 2 million more votes for her. But California is where her margin was 3.7 million over Trump. That means Trump beat Hillary even in the popular vote in the rest of the nation excluding California by 1.7 million. This notion that the ‘American people’ voted for Hillary is not exactly on point.
The allegations of large scale voter fraud in California to keep Bernie down for Hillary are widespread. There was even a recent study by Stanford University that established Hillary Clinton’s campaign pre-rigged the system to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders.(stanford-university-confirms-democratic-election-fraud-your-news-wire) Then there were the DNC emails showing the conspiracy within the Democratic Party to steal the nomination from Bernie. This was never more apparent than in California where Bernie Sanders voters were likely robbed of a legitimate candidate – and they know how it happened and who is to blame. So is California justification to Hand the crown?

President-elect Trump won 306 electoral votes versus Hillary Clinton’s 232 (24% less electoral votes). Similar to 2000, the surrendering party then reversed course and put the nation through a recount, just for the sake of it. What are the odds that such an exercise here would yield successful for Ms. Clinton? Based on statistical randomness of re-assessing voter intent, the chance of Hillary emerging as the victor is far less than 10%.
Anything can happen, but these lean odds do not rise to the level of putting our peaceful democracy into the hands of a temptuous recount scheme every time a stung party loses (let alone misleadingly blame it on something else from Russia’s Putin, to sexism, to “in hindsight the popular vote would be reasonable”, to FBI Director Comey). All Americans should instead focus on how the 6 states that flipped this election, were all economically ignored and all flipped to Donald Trump.
The only viable path for a Hillary Clinton victory at this stage is to astoundingly uncover a wide-spread (across three states) fraud. And that’s equally unlikely, since the basis for the voting aberrations occurred in less populated counties and anyway the three states employ three different voting mechanisms, so the fraud would have had to somehow occur through different transmission vehicles (paper voting, and electronic voting) and we would require a speedy judicial resolution for states such as Pennsylvania that sidestepped back-up recordings from their direct voting equipment.
