Fake News? Obama’s Russia Myths Debunked

During his Friday news conference, US President Barack Obama spoke at length about Russia, making several statements that can hardly withstand even minimal fact-checking.

While liberal mainstream media concoct fake news that President-Elect Trump is Moscow's Manchurian Candidate, they ignore the latest real threat from Russia.
Russian state television "accidentally" disclosed plans for a robot submarine, reportedly armed with a massive 100 megaton warhead-the largest nuclear weapon ever deployed by any nation.  The submarine doomsday bomb would explode underwater to radioactively contaminate and inundate with tsunamis U.S. coastal cities and seaboard, where are concentrated much of America's military-industrial strength and population.

During the day on Wednesday, we saw CNN repeatedly air gruesome film footage of the massacre of civilians in Aleppo by the Russians and their Iranian and Syrian puppets. Not once did any CNN talking head bother to point out that Obama's policy of intervention, through support of terrorist groups in Syria who are losing the war, may have had a role in the unfolding massacre.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, currently being considered by Trump for the Supreme Court, dropped a bombshell in an interview with Fox & Friends Thursday, saying sources within the U.S. intelligence community — not Russia — had provided documents from the DNC and John Podesta for publication by Wikileaks.

Schools of dead herring keep washing ashore along the rocky beaches of western Nova Scotia, prompting a retired scientist to enlist the help of local naturalists and bird watchers as he continues to gather data about the mysterious phenomenon.
Ted Leighton, an adjunct biology professor at Nova Scotia's University of Sainte-Anne, said Friday he has compiled more than 40 sightings since tens of thousands of dead and dying fish started appearing in St. Marys Bay in late November.

A deep magnitude 7.9 strikes Papua New Guinea causing possible tsunami followed by a Mag 6.3 in the same area just half an hour later.
The two major quakes have occurred as another massive coronal hole is facing Earth as the last one earlier this month brought 8 major quakes in as many days.
Earlier this month a massive coronal hole opened facing the Earth resulting in 8 major quakes in as many days including the massive mag 7.8 in the Solomon Islands

The parliamentary chairman of Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD), Thomas Oppermann, has asserted that social media giants like Facebook should be required to remove fake news and illegal posts within 24 hours or face fines up to €500,000 ($522,000).

“Facebook has not used the opportunity to effectively regulate the issue of complaint management itself,” Oppermann said in an interview with Der Spiegel on Friday. Therefore, “market dominating platforms like Facebook will be legally required to build a legal protection office in Germany, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” he added.

While the Syrian army, backed by Russian airstrikes, has been fighting to kick terrorists out of Aleppo and save the civilians trapped inside, demonstrations have been held across Europe with people protesting the Syrian government forces’ presence in the city.

“I think it’s one of the greatest divides that I have ever seen in publicity at the moment. On one hand you have people dancing in the streets in Aleppo or at least extremely relieved to be out of the horrible environment they were in and we have Western media which is talking about it like it’s really a huge disaster with people being slaughtered on the streets. It’s an extraordinary polemic really,” Anderson said.

Russian scientists are working on hypersonic aircraft that will be able to penetrate enemy missile defense, RIA Novosti wrote, citing Boris Satovsky, a project director at the military research agency Future Research Fund in Moscow.

“Thanks to their outstanding technical characteristics, such systems will be able to break through virtually every existing missile defense system, thus ensuring global military-strategic parity in the next 30-40 years,” Boris Satovsky told RIA.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has accused Damascus of carrying out "nothing short of a massacre" in Aleppo. Geoffrey Roberts, professor of history at University College Cork and a member of the Royal Irish Academy, told Radio Sputnik that these and similar remarks are meant to divert attention away from Western failures in Syria.

In response to recent concerns about “fake news” and opinion-swaying hoaxes, Facebook has unveiled new measures to address the issue. But unless done right, these steps may create more problems than they solve — and boost claims that the “fake news crisis” is an attempt to impose political controls on the media.
One Facebook measure gives power to consumers themselves: Anyone will be able to report a hoax by clicking the upper right hand corner of a post.
This may accomplish some good, but the potential for abuse is immediately obvious. People can flood the system with fake reports of fake news, either to punish websites and news organizations they dislike or to subvert the fake-news-flagging process itself.

The U.S. intelligence community will soon disclose an estimate of the number of Americans whose electronic communications have been caught in the crosshairs of online surveillance programs intended for foreigners, U.S. lawmakers said in a letter seen by Reuters on Friday.

The estimate, requested by members of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, is expected to be made public as early as next month, the letter said.

Its disclosure would come as Congress is expected to begin debate in the coming months over whether to reauthorize or reform the so-called surveillance authority, known as Section 702, a provision that was added to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 2008.

US government “propagandists” push for a foreign policy of “intervening around the world,” former presidential candidate and founder of the Institute for Peace and Prosperity, Dr. Ron Paul, told RT in a wide-ranging interview that also touched on Syria.

Following reports that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for personally directing a cyberattack that cost her the 2016 presidential election, Dr. Paul shrugged off the allegations as a “fiasco” in an interview with RT’s Neil Harvey.

The claims that the Russian government hacked US voting machines are absurd.

The FBI says that the claims attributed to the CIA would not stand up in court.

What we are experiencing in the delegitimization of Donald Trump is an extraordinary rejection of democracy by elements in the government and by the presstitutes.

A years-long forensics investigation into the computer image of the long-form Hawaiian birth certificate image that Barack Obama released during a White House news conference during his first term and presented to the American people as an official government document concluded it is “fake.”

The sheriff’s video said there were nine images on the Obama birth certificate that appear to be identical to, and copied from, another birth certificate issued in Hawaii just days after his birth. That certificate belongs to Johanna Ah’nee.

The US lame duck administration is going to any length in an effort to torpedo the looming normalization of Russia-US relations as Donald Trump is preparing for his inaugural speech on January 20. Any method would do, even playing with fire.

Thanks for the dog blaming the Russians meme, Scott! It's getting that all I can do is scan these headlines now. The clock appears to be clicking louder.

Haha- I couldn't resist that picture :)

Yes - things are closing in very rapidly.....The most pivotal event in the timeline may be the breakup of the EU and the formation of the 10 kings....Of course that could be a post-rapture scenario
