Nets Repeat Bogus Claim of ‘Hacked Election’ 49x In One Month

If you weren’t paying attention in the past month, you might actually believe that Russian spies infiltrated our voting booths to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. Well, at least that’s the perception the big three news networks are trying to create by repeatedly insisting that Russia “hacked the election.”

From December 8 to January 8, MRC analysts found that journalists on ABC, CBS and NBC repeated this loaded phrase at least 49 times in their morning and

The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer

In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.

This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”

‘Ferguson effect’: 72% of U.S. cops reluctant to make stops

More than three-quarters of U.S. law enforcement officers say they are reluctant to use force when necessary, and nearly as many — 72% — say they or their colleagues are more reluctant to stop and question people who seem suspicious as a result of increased scrutiny of police, according to a new study published Wednesday by the Pew Research Center.

The 2014 officer-involved shooting death of a black teen in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson put the national spotlight on police use of force and officers’ interactions with minorities. Since then, top-ranking law enforcement officers and policymakers have debated the impact of the so-called “Ferguson effect” — officers becoming less proactive in their policing out of a fear their actions will be second-guessed by their superiors and the public.

FLASHBACK: Black Americans Supported the 1994 Crime Bill, Too

In a pair of essays published this week, law professor Michelle Alexander and historian Donna Murch examined Hillary Clinton’s role in making the American criminal justice into the hyperpunitive monster that it is today. Both essays focused in part on the 1994 crime bill that Clinton championed during the first term of her husband’s presidency—a bill that expanded the use of the death penalty, created new three-strikes rules, and offered funding for states that made it harder for people to get parole. In Murch’s words, “Bill Clinton and his allies embarked on a draconian punishment campaign to outflank the Republicans,” while Hillary supported the effort and “stood resolutely at her husband’s side.”

Booker breaks Senate precedent, drawing fire on Sessions nomination

WASHINGTON – Sen. Cory A. Booker (D., N.J.) has cultivated an image as a voice for minorities and as a post-partisan lawmaker trying to bridge divides.

But those two aspirations came into conflict Tuesday, after Booker announced he would break long-standing tradition by testifying against Sen. Jeff Sessions as the Alabama Republican seeks confirmation as Donald Trump’s choice for attorney general.

“I’m disappointed,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah), who has spent nearly 40 years in the chamber. “It’s a fellow senator – you don’t treat other senators that way.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.), called the move “a disgraceful breach of custom.”

Gingrich Fears Trump Administration Might Lose Its Nerve

By The Hill, Jan. 01, 2016 Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Sunday that he fears the incoming Trump administration will lose its nerve after the president-elect enters the White House. “That they will lose their nerve,” Gingrich told ABC’s “This Week” when asked what he fears most about the Trump administration. “I mean, they’re going to arrive in Washington and for them to be successful they have to stake out positions that Donald will not like and the left will hate.” Read More:

Italy To Seek To Track Down And Deport Migrants With No Right To Stay

By Tahoo, Dec. 31, 2016 ROME (Reuters) – Italy will seek to deport more migrants who have no right to be in the country and will open new detention centers to hold them before their expulsion, according to a written directive and a ministry source. Police chief Franco Gabrielli sent a two-page directive to stations across the country on Friday ordering them to increase efforts to identify and deport migrants a week after Berlin Christmas market attacker Anis Amri was shot dead near Milan. The directive, seen by Reuters, says police should take “extraordinary action” before the “growing migratory pressure in an international context marked by instability and threats” to “control and remove irregular foreigners.” Read More:

For China Climate Change Is No Hoax Its a Business and Political Opportunity

By Real Media, Dec. 31, 2016 In mid-November, while Americans were preoccupied with election returns, China sent some of its clearest signals yet that it will continue to pursue an international leadership role on issues including climate. At an international climate change summit in Marrakech, the Chinese government reasserted its commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. The government announced that its aggregate emissions will peak by 2030 or earlier, and that its emissions per dollar of economic output will decline sharply. Read More:

Spike In Migrants Raises Questions About Obama Strategy

By McClatchy DC, Dec. 30, 2016 WASHINGTON A new surge of migrants have rushed to the U.S. border this fall as deportations of those here illegally have dropped to the lowest levels in nearly a decade. The spike in Central American families flooding the U.S. border has fueled fears of a new immigration crisis like the one that dominated headlines in 2014 as tens of thousands of mothers and children from Central America raced into the Rio Grande Valley of Texas fleeing violence and poverty. It also raises questions about whether the United States is prepared for a new surge and about the effectiveness of the Obama administration’s strategy to curb the flow through a combination of immigration enforcement and humanitarian assistance to the nations from which the migrants come.

‘Trans-Racial’ Rachel Dolezal Disinvited from MLK Event After Backlash

By Breitbart, Dec. 31, 2016 Dolezal, who was formerly an adjunct professor at Eastern Washington University, was disinvited from her scheduled appearance at Cary, North Carolina’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Dreamfest in January. She was scheduled to participate in a panel discussion about racial identity and race relations with representatives from the NAACP. Dolezal is the former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP, a position that she was forced to resign from after she was accused of portraying herself as African-American despite being born and raised by white parents. Doug McRainey, Cary’s director of parks, recreation, and cultural resources, claims that the decision to remove Dolezal from the program was made after backlash erupted in the community. Read More:

Democrats act to save ObamaCare from GOP repeal, Obama to Hill, ‘Day of Action’

By Daily Mail, Dec. 31, 2016 President Obama’s trip next week to Capitol Hill to discuss ObamaCare is only the latest — and most visible — sign that Democrats are ready to fight Republicans’ plans to change the president’s signature health-care law as well as Medicaid and Medicare. Obama will visit Wednesday with House and Senate Democrats, the day after the 115th Congress convenes and Republicans, who have the majority in both chambers, are expected to start repealing and replacing ObamaCare. “Step one is the ObamaCare replacement legislation at the start of the year,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said a few weeks ago, as members closed out their 2016 session. “Bring it on,” incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in response.Read More:

Scarborough Blows Up at Reporter for Claiming He ‘Partied’ With Trump on New Years

By Mediaite, Jan 01, 2016 MSNBC’S Joe Scarborough went on a warpath on Sunday as he called out CBS former reporter Sopan Deb for saying that the MSNBC host spent New Years Eve cozying up to President-Elect Donald Trump. On Sunday, Deb tweeted an excerpt from a New York Times article describing Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, and the party Trump held there to celebrate the new year. Deb found it interesting that the co-hosts of Morning Joe were seen at the estate yesterday, and Deb described their presence by saying that they “partied” with Trump. Read More:

10-Year-Old Girl Used As Human Bomb In Nigeria New Year’s Eve Aattack

By Yahoo, Jan. 01, 2016 Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) – One person was seriously injured when a suicide bomber aged around 10 blew herself up in a New Year’s Eve attack in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, witnesses and aid workers told AFP Sunday. The girl approached a crowd buying noodles from a food vendor in the Customs area of the city around 9:30 pm on Saturday and detonated her explosives, they said. Although no one has claimed responsibility the attack bore the hallmark of Boko Haram Islamists who are notorious for using suicide bombers, mostly women and young girls, in attacking civilian targets.
