Conclusion: It’s not even the foxes who are guarding the Internet Henhouse. It’s the werewolves of CIA and US Government censorship. Whether the explosive Pizzagate Podesta revelations merely triggered a dramatic acceleration in the timetable for the CIA’s planned “Fake News” operation as the successor to their 1980’s “Conspiracy Theory” linguistic discrediting operation, it’s clear this is no unbiased, objective, transparent public service to protect the Internet public from harmful content.
And, besides, who are they to tell me or you what you are allowed to read, digest and form your independent ideas about? This is a 21st Century reincarnation of the Spanish Inquisition, one by the real fake newsmakers–Washington Post, AP, ABCNews, Snopes.com, FactCheck.org, the CIA and friends. I would say it’s an alarming development of cyber warfare, not by Russia, but by those CIA-run networks that are fomenting Fake News to demonize any and everyone who opposes Washington intelligence propaganda.
France will convene some 70 countries on January 15 for a Middle East peace conference in Paris, its foreign minister said on Thursday, and will invite the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to meet separately at its conclusion. France has repeatedly tried to breathe new life into the peace process this year, holding a preliminary conference in June where the UN, EU, US and major Arab countries gathered to discuss proposals without the Israelis or Palestinians present. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had repeatedly rejected the conference proposal. “France is still determined to hold a conference in Paris to reaffirm the necessity of a two-state solution,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told journalists.

“I’ve seen no reports of aid getting in. I mean, as of coming out here, I’m not aware of any aid still getting in to the people of Aleppo,” US State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Wednesday at a daily press briefing.
Going further, Kirby advised the audience to refer to mainstream news coverage showing “the devastation that’s being wrought on the people of Aleppo and the innocent men, women, and children that are still there, that still are trying to get out, and still haven’t received any humanitarian aid.”

Russia, Turkey, Iran not discussing Assad fate – Moscow
The reconciliation group of Russia, Iran and Turkey is focusing on more pressing issues than the fate of Syrian President Bashar Assad in its discussions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday. “The subject mentioned [Assad] is not being discussed at the moment, there are more urgent affairs,” Ryabkov told RIA Novosti. The foreign ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey adopted a joint statement on Tuesday to revive the political process to end the conflict in Syria. There is no secret agenda on Syria, Ryabkov said. “The only agenda that exists and can exist for us – I hope that Turkey and Iran share it – is to find ways to stabilize and improve the humanitarian situation, to prevent new complications and further suffering for residents of the country,” he said.

. . . But we can be sure that it [the assassination] will not stop developing relations between Turkey and Russia. If the Turks convince the Russians they had nothing to do with it, that it was connected to the FETO organisation whose leader Fetullah Gulen is in the United States, living under American protection, though he has denied it, or to the terrorist organisations they have been supporting in Syria, and the western intelligence and military services supporting them, then it is likely to push Russia, Turkey and Iran, closer together against a common enemy. And, indeed, this appears to be the case as those three nations went ahead with talks in Moscow on Tuesday to forge a way ahead to a peaceful resolution of the war in Syria.
But the willingness to assassinate an ambassador means that we can expect the US and its allies to develop new actions in Syria against the Syrian government and Russia and their allies, just as they have reverted back to new sanctions against Iran in violation of their agreement with Iran. The Americans are still invading Syria every day, sending in forces, setting up camps flying American flags, acting as an occupation force along with British, French and other forces and so far the Syrians have not dared to touch them. But so long as those bases are allowed to remain, committing their act of aggression against Syria, they will be the source of more violence and chaos.
Would NATO be willing to assassinate an ambassador? . . .

What the US economy doesn’t need from Donald Trump, by Joseph Stiglitz
As Donald Trump fills his cabinet, what have we learned about the likely direction and impact of his administration’s economic policy?
To be sure, enormous uncertainties remain. As in many other areas, Trump’s promises and statements on economic policy have been inconsistent. While he routinely accuses others of lying, many of his economic assertions and promises – indeed, his entire view of governance – seem worthy of Nazi Germany’s “big lie” propagandists.

Jim Stone: UPDATE on the Mexican gasoline shortage: http://18.104.22.168/
Question: What cities are out of gas? My response: That’s hard to know. But at present, it appears problems are happening in Guadalajara, and DEFINITE: The city of Leon and outlying areas with a population of 2 million is completely out of gas at all pumps and all gas stations in the entire city. All other cities in the state of Gunanajuato are confirmed to be completely out of gas. The state of Queretaro is out of gas. The state of Chihuahua is confirmed to be completely out of gas. All Texas border areas in Mexico are confirmed out of gas. That would strongly imply that the city of Monterrey is out of gas. And since these states range from south central Mexico all the way North, the gas crisis is obviously huge.
Claudia just got back from a Christmas party that was heavily weighted with Mexico’s upper class, and in their circles nothing is confirmed as to why this is happening other than ALL gas is going to be coming from China now. That is why I issued the war warning in the original report on this because if that be the case, WHY IS IT THE CASE? They are not saying it is because of any war but maybe they did not think of that because they are not in on whatever this is. One huge factor is that this is all such a huge surprise. This morning everything was fine. In the evening NO GAS. So everyone is running like a chicken with it’s head cut off
There is a side issue that should not have taken effect yet – Mexico has a new energy policy that regulates the gas stations, and all of the stations have to sign it or they will receive no gas. However, action on this was supposed to start on January 1 and the cutoff was not supposed to be instant. So though that needs to be considered in the future, it should not have done anything today.
Mexican perception is that the government is playing games, and simply cut off imports from the U.S. so they can get them from China instead and make more money. But it would be beyond stupid to just stop importing from America and wait for the slow boat to arrive while the nation crashes. The only thing that makes sense is that America cut off exports, and Mexico has to scramble to get gas from anywhere possible. And if that most rational outcome is what is at play here, stockpiling by the U.S. in preparation for a MAJOR war is the only conceivable reason.
I do not have all the answers with this, I can only say what is being said, what has happened, and then think rationally about what it means.
Another update on the Mexican gasoline shortage
SUMMARY: Yesterday evening enormous portions of Mexico ran out of gas without warning. I am talking a personally confirmed MINIMUM of 18 million people, and it probably is more like 100 million people without gas. There was no explanation given other than that “The U.S. stopped sending gas” and “Now we have to wait until January for more to arrive from China” This is what the gas stations were saying. Obviously, if the U.S. really did stop sending gas suddenly, it would be a war preparation move, where the U.S. would be stockpiling gas before a huge world war to stop Trump from getting in.
There is a LOT about this topic on this page now. I am going out today to get an update on this crisis.
One reader pointed out that Mexico is a large crude oil producer. Possibly. But that does not necessarily mean gasoline, it might mean road tar. And contrary to what people think, Mexico has a huge number of cars on the road and is similar to America that way. So gas demands are very high.
One guy trolled me and said the CIA blew up Mexico’s last refinery years ago. That is a laugh, Mexico has some absolutely giant refineries. And that begs the question: How on earth did gas just suddenly run out? It did not fade out, it was just suddenly gone. If it really is gone, it would mean that the government did not warn the people of an obvious approaching crisis.
This morning, cars are gone from driveways about 80 percent of normal. But no one idled them like they usually do (usually people idle them for 10 minutes or more before driving which I think is stupid) and today they all started them and drove immediately. Overall traffic is down by at least 70 percent so they are driving to single important destinations. It is much quieter.
One guy messaged me and said “war with Mexico is on!” and I shook my head. Obviously not. Others messaged saying that the U.S. exported more oil to Mexico than ever this year and that there was a 40 year ban on oil exports to Mexico prior to this year. That’s BULLSHIT, Mexicans all know the gas has always come from America and I don’t care what gets quoted to the contrary. They are angry with Pemex, which charges huge prices and never develops anything. All Mexicans know Mexico could be oil independent and simply blame corruption for that never happening.
So with the gasoline crisis in Mexico, which regardless of what you are reading in the TOTAL BULLSHIT SCAMMING LYING MSM THAT COULD NOT GET THE TRUTH RIGHT EVEN AFTER A BULLET THROUGH THE BRAIN, Mexico has a severe fuel crisis ongoing right now and it is not just one city, this is widespread from the U.S. border down to Mexico City.
I do not know if Mexico City itself is out of gas yet, but the states of Queretaro, Guanajuato and Jalisco are out that I have confirmed myself because they are neighboring states, one of them I drove into, and THAT is worthy of world news all by itself. All the gas stations said there would be nothing more until next year because “a boat had to come from China to bring it” because “the U.S. is not sending it anymore”. Claudia and I got early warning and led the pack with a Mercedes and a Nissan following out of state in a mad rush for gas elsewhere and when we pulled in to the first gas station in the neighboring state we were the first and there was suddenly a huge mob of cars behind us waiting for gas. It was like the beginning of a disaster movie. And then that state (not only that station) ran out of gas completely two hours later. I am going out now to get an update on the situation.
