A lot of heat

You can find this at the bottom of "The List", though I wonder why anybody would decline the honor (you could just copy the list as your blogroll):
"Removed following constructive conversations with outlet operators: aanirfan.blogspot.co.uk, abovetopsecret.com, counterpunch.org, nutritionfacts.org, russia-direct.org
Added: 4thmedia.org, nsnbc.me, presstv.com, theunhivedmind.com, sana.sy"
Do these 'constructive conversations' mean that some people are aware of the identity of the list maker?

"Fake News and War Party Lies" (Buchanan).  A bit of history.

"The Propaganda About Russian Propaganda":
"Another major issue with PropOrNot is that its members insist on anonymity. If one aims to cut through a disinformation campaign, transparency is paramount. Otherwise you just stoke further paranoia.The Russian journalist Alexey Kovalev, who debunks Kremlin propaganda on his site, Noodleremover, floated the possibility that PropOrNot was Ukrainians waging a disinformation campaign against Russia. The PropOrNot spokesman would speak to me only on the condition of anonymity and revealed only bare biographical details on background. “Are you familiar with the assassination of Jo Cox?” he asked, when I asked why his group remained in the shadows, referring to the British M.P. murdered by a right-wing extremist. “Well, that is a big thing for us. Basically, Russia uses crazy people to kill its enemies.”"

"Washington Post Reporter Spreads Blacklist of Independent Journalist Sites".  The 'reporter' might as well wear a neon sign on his head saying 'CIA'.

"Senators call for declassification of files on Russia's role in US election".

"Ryerson 'concerned' about allegations of anti-Semitism at student union meeting" (my emphasis in red):
"The alleged incident took place Tuesday evening at an RSU general meeting, during which a student introduced a motion to commemorate Holocaust education week with events to teach and remember the tragedy.

Third-year student Aedan O’Connor, there to support the motion, said she and other students were subject to jeers and snickers when they spoke, which escalated to anti-Semitic comments.

She also accused two groups of orchestrating a spontaneous walkout so quorum would be lost at the meeting, and with it an opportunity to vote on the motion for Holocaust remembrance — which both groups denied.

“Several students left crying and having panic attacks,” said O’Connor, 20, a member of Hillel Ryerson. Some posted their experiences on the RSU and other Facebook pages.

Neither Ullah or Tamara Jones, RSU vice-president of equity, said they heard any derogatory remarks from their positions on stage at the front of the room.

But they said the union is disturbed by the claims. The motion for a week to mark the Holocaust has the support of the board and will likely be approved at the next meeting, said Ullah.

“At the end of the day we have zero tolerance for this,” he said. “We do not tolerate any form of oppression. It’s not fair for these students to feel upset, or negative or hear such negativity on their own campus.”

He said he has met with two Jewish groups, Hillel Ryerson and Students Supporting Israel, and “they’ve been assured they have our support and the university’s support.”

Ullah said the controversy broke out more than three hours into the meeting, after many attending to support earlier motions had left, and attendance was hovering around the required quorum level of 100 people.

When someone proposed the motion regarding Holocaust education week be broadened to a week commemorating all genocides, “it definitely caused a lot of heat in the room,” he said, adding that proposal “was not appropriate.”"
"With Attacks On The Rise, Sens. Casey and Scott Introduce Bipartisan Anti-Semitism Awareness Act".

"Gatlinburg Wildfire: Jews and Blacks Celebrate Poor White People Dying, Arson Suspected":
"To see the scandalous contrast, just last week the Judenpresse turned a wild fire in Israel into an international story with extensive coverage. This inspired an international volunteer coalition of even nations that are lukewarm at best towards Jews – Russians, Egyptians, Turks and others – who were flown in to put it out for the cowardly Jews. There is even a significant number of white Gentile butt-kissing firefighters from America who have traveled to aid the effort in Israel, while their countrymen in poorly resourced Appalachia plea to deaf ears for someone to help!"
"Keith Ellison Allegedly Said U.S. Foreign Policy Is ‘Governed’ by Israel".  "Rep. Keith Ellison faces renewed scrutiny over past ties to Nation of Islam, defense of anti-Semitic figures".  But.

"Cornel West: Unlike Bernie Sanders, I'm Not Convinced the Democratic Party Can Be Reformed":
". . .  they can’t even talk about the Israeli occupation honestly. The president uses a language in 2009, they can’t use it in the platform. Why? Because they tied to the lobby, they tied to AIPAC. So that, when you have those kinds of restraints on you, these albatrosses around your neck, how are you going to be a party for the people? How you going to be a party for working people, poor people. How you going to be a party for those brothers and sisters in Yemen who are dealing with U.S.-supported troops and bombs killing them, mediated with Saudi Arabian government? How you going to deal with the Palestinians, deal with the Israeli occupation? How you going to deal with Africans, the expansion of AFRICOM, and so forth? There has to be some integrity and moral consistency. And unfortunately, the Democratic Party just strikes me as not being able to meet that challenge."
"Tired Dem donors feel like their money got burned" (my emphasis in red):
"“They’re tired,” one DNC official told The Hill. “They’re upset about the election, and there was significant trauma surrounding the Russians. They’re upset and they’re tired.”"
"A major setback for the Middle East peace process….":
"This is not the first time that the dark forces of Zionism have tried to silence the Muslims of this city. Lod was originally a Canaanite town and in ancient times became the old Arab city of Lydda. Its importance grew under Ottoman rule and the British mandate and by 1948 it had become a key trading centre with an airport and rail hub and nearly 20,000 inhabitants – 18,500 Muslim and 1,500 Christian. The UN’s Partition Plan of 1947 allocated Lydda to a future Arab state.

But in July 1948 Israeli terrorist troops seized Lydda, shot up the town and drove out the population as part of their ethnic cleansing programme. In the process they silenced 426 men, women, and children…. permanently. 176 of them were slaughtered in the town’s main mosque. See here for the lurid details.

Those who survived were forced to walk into exile in the scalding July heat leaving a trail of bodies — men, women and children — along the way. And who was the perpetrator of this foul massacre? None other than the great hero of the Six Day War, Moshe Dayan.

The assault on Lydda was witnessed by two American news correspondents. One recorded that “practically everything in their way died. Riddled corpses lay by the roadside.” The other wrote that he saw “the corpses of Arab men, women and even children strewn about in the wake of the ruthlessly brilliant charge”.

Christians, especially English Christians (and indeed Swedish, Portuguese, Romanian, Georgian and Maltese) will be aware that these outrages were committed in St George’s home town. He was born and buried in Lydda.

Israeli troops carried away 1,800 truck loads of loot. Jewish immigrants then flooded in and Lydda was given its Hebrew name, Lod.

So Israelis have no right to be there in the first place. Nor Ben Gurion airport, formerly Lydda airport. All was stolen in the murderous terror raid."

Unbelievable efforts

"Anti-Semitism On the Left? Don’t Expect Credibility When You Slam It On the Right."  "Deborah Lipstadt’s double standard on white nationalism and Jewish nationalism".  Takes one to know one.  On the other hand, the 'alt right' blogs and social media are the only places you can read any sense about the malign influence of Jewish supremacism on the United States and thus on the world.

I'll just stick this in here.

"Fifty Truths about Fidel Castro".

"America is Just Losing It".  The Krugman tweets are a high water mark of clarification, not just of the newly revealed easy McCarthyism of the 'left', but the group supremacist Putin phobia of highly credentialed Jews.  It is all quite amazing, especially the complete lack of self-awareness, fostered by the bubble they live in, of how utterly ridiculous they appear to those of us living in the real world.

Tweets by Jacob Bacharach.  "Still More Myths About Clinton’s Defeat in Election 2016 Debunked".

"How Russian Propaganda Really Works in the West".

This Putin crap is important, not just because it is the usual Jewish supremacist warmongering, but because it prevents real reform in the Democrats, who are going with the idea that a bunch of conspiracies temporarily blocked their inevitable decades of wins due to 'demographics' (which itself depends on large groups of people deciding that tranny bathrooms are more important than their own lives), and so nothing needs to change.

"Media Critic Calls On Journalists To Be Obedient Stenographers".  As if they weren't already!

"Iranophobes on Parade".  Trump's stated position on Iran is nuts, and is completely out of sync with his usual consistent patriotic isolationism.  "The Iran Deal Is Doomed".  "ISIS to carry out Dirty Bomb attack in near future?".

Trump's cabinet:

  1. all powerful, as Trump delegates everything and just smiles and waves; or
  2. not powerful at all, like Harper's cabinet in Canada, where the cabinet ministers were just stooges with no say in policy whatsoever who just read speeches prepared from Harper's office?
Trump is taking a great degree of care and effort in assembling this group.

"Report: Trump ‘Furious’ at Kellyanne’s Romney Attack".  I doubt it.  The Trump strategy throughout has been to manipulate phony controversies.

"Lenin comes to the White House" (Escobar).  The success of Trump's presidency turns on whether he is able to, or even cares to, work around the globalists.

"Kerry making ‘unbelievable effort’ to save Syrian rebels from Trump, Russia confirms".

Tweet (Larry Akey) (Barry's shekels are tied directly on how prepared he can make Trump to fight more Wars For The Jews):
"Once again, Obama applies 2001 AUMF to a group that didn't exist in 2001."
Tweet (Glenn Greenwald):
"Some people were hoping Obama would restrict War on Terror powers Trump will inherit but he is using his last days in office to expand them."

"Evidence-based vs. accusation-driven reporting".  Note the bad faith involved in insisting on criminal law standards of proof while discussing a conspiracy.  You are not going to find a smoking gun.  We know that Soros was a big Hillary supporter, that it is probable that at least some protesters were paid and transported to protests, and that these protests were completely consistent, in style and intent, with color revolutions, the financing of which Soros boasts about.  If it wasn't Soros it was somebody exactly like him.

"No electoral reform until enough Canadians want it, Monsef says".  Canadians are resisting the utter destruction of their country fronted by an illegal immigrant (important, as the iffy citizenship status means they have a powerful hold on her), but I fear this is another slimy trick, like we're recently seen in trade deals, to fool patriots into stopping their opposition and then springing the Euro-trash-style political sinecure system on the country.  Canadian politicians are simply sick and tired of having to listen to the concerns of the whiny voters, and are thus highly motivated to commit treason by any means necessary.

"I Swear to God This Is a Real Graph From Thomas Friedman's Latest Book".  The moustache-shaped graph of understanding.

Baseless assertions

"Trump's baseless assertions of voter fraud called 'stunning'".  There seems to have been an understanding that the Democrats wouldn't seriously complain about vote suppression and gerrymandering, and the Republicans wouldn't seriously complain about voting by illegals.  Along with split control of crooked voting machines, the idea is that the duelling frauds would cancel each other out.  "A Brief History of the Election OMG PUTIN IS TAKING CONTROL OF THIS ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!!"

Precious bodily fluids

The enlightenment we've received about the true nature of American 'progressives' will endure:  "A To-Go Order For His Satanic Majesty" (read the whole thing, as it is simply shocking to read such truth about 'donors' and what they require in return:  "This is the area where Obama and Hillary got their black belts in Jew-dough."):
"(We also need a new word for the people who support Obama and Killary. They aren’t really liberals or progressives or leftists. What should we call people who silence the class struggle, elevate identity politics and support mass murder as long as the right colored or sexed or partied politicians are doing it? I’m open to suggestions — just make it catchy. Don’t submit mouthfuls like “revolting irrelevant vacuous weak-ass pricks and cunts.”)"
It is the combination of over-the-top essence of Pure Evil and delicate, self-centred, self-satisfied, but bought-and-paid-for, self-righteousness that puts them over the top.

Broadcasting Board of Governors

"EARLY EDITION. SPECIAL REPORT. Father of Orlando shooter part of U.S. pro-Taliban CIA/VOA network by Wayne Madsen Report" (cited by albert champion in the comments):
"Seddique Mir Mateen, the presidential pretender of Afghanistan and father of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, is part of a pro-Taliban network of Afghan and Pakistani propagandists who use the television and radio networks funded by the CIA-influenced Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to spread their messages to audiences throughout the world. Mateen hosts a television show called the Durand Jirga Show, which is funded through his Durand Jirga, Inc., a Florida not-for-profit corporation based in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Mateen's program is broadcast by Payame Afghan out of Los Angeles, which is also the home to a number of CIA- and VOA-subsidized satellite broadcasts in the Farsi language to Iran.

Mateen claims he maintains his own intelligence network, but this appears to be a reference to his CIA and Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) friends who are involved in South Asia's propaganda war using satellite programs broadcast in Pashto -- major languages of Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mateen's broadcast language Dari, and Urdu.

The BBG has funded a number of U.S.-based broadcasters that operate from the United States, Pakistan, and Afghanistan in order to target Pakistani and Afghan audiences in the United States and around the world with propaganda. For example, the Voice of America uses Pakistani television networks to broadcast VOA programs produced in Washington that involve anchors located in Washington and Pakistan. One Urdu-language program called "The Platform" airs on Pakistani television with an anchor in Washington and local hosts in Lahore and Islamabad. Another show is "Kahani Pakistani," a TV magazine program. These attempts at winning over the hearts and minds of the people of Pakistan and Afghanistan are considered major failures and a waste of taxpayers' funds.

Even after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the United States, the VOA's Pashto service gave a propaganda platform to the Afghan Taliban.

After the September 11 attack, Spozhmai Maiwandi, the director of the Voice of America's Pashtun service, jokingly nicknamed "Kandahar Rose" by her colleagues, aired favorable reports on the Taliban, including a controversial interview with Taliban leader Mullah Omar. It should not be surprising, therefore, that Seddique Mir Mateen's own views side with those of the Taliban. The presence of a number of pro-Taliban Afghan-Americans in the United States was facilitated by the CIA's support for the mujaheddin cause in the Afghan jihadist war with the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Even Afghan-American diplomat Zalmay Khalilzad, the former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nations, served as a key interlocutor between the Taliban government of Afghanistan and the UNOCAL oil company in Houston in the late 1990s. Today, those links serve Khalilzad and the CIA well at the CIA-linked Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, where Khalilzad serves as a counselor."
"On Blacklists and Russia 'Hacking' American Democracy" (and note the Ukrainian neo-Nazi source at the end provided by Mark Ames, who has also emailed Yves Smith, and presumably has deep Russian sources):
"Details about this group continue to emerge. It appears there's a chance that PropOrNot is connected to groups funded the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a CIA spinoff that manages the U.S. government's foreign propaganda division. If true, that would make PropOrNot's activities illegal — in violation of a federal law that prohibits the BBG from intentionally influencing or swaying public opinion inside the United States. Creating blacklists of American journalists, labelling them as traitors and then circulating this information to American newspapers would certainly fall into that category."

Support for the Taliban reminds me of the CIA-Taliban alliance, and the use of a Ukrainian neo-Nazi against the Russians, it is like the CIA is having an LSD flashback.  "Operation Cyclone".  "Operation Paperclip".

Although she claims her fund raising efforts were entirely grass roots, the facts suggest otherwise. By what I'm seeing here, big donors stepped in early to put her over the top -- then the grass roots plebs stepped into the toss nickels at her -- with donations shrinking from $4,800 per minute to just over 40 bucks now. Interestingly, the rate by which she's raised funds have an inverse correlation to the amount of press she's been receiving.

In other words, none of this makes any sense. Where did all of the early money come from?"

To her great credit, Stein is anti-war (as you have to be if you are a consistent environmentalist), and thus against the only wars on the table these days, Wars For The Jews.  If you think, as you should, that climate change is the main issue facing the world today, Hillary's WWIII, the ultimate War For The Jews promised to the 'donors' (and required by them as Russia is viewed as the only obstacle to Yinon and the Jewish Empire across the Middle East, a fact that also completely explains Nudelman-Kagan's Ukrainian adventures and the bizarre blaming of the Russians for Hillary's loss), is literally the Worst Possible Thing (just for the environmental effect, leaving aside all the dying and stuff).  That is why support for Hillary is not just a mistake, it is the most profound evil imaginable.  Stein, despite the trendy tree-hugging which you would think would be catnip for 'donors', has never had any traction with them until this thin possible window back to WWIII.

Bamboozled

"Tulsi Gabbard’s screw-the-neocons meeting with Trump sparks anger, derision, encouragement".  Smart move to fly the flag like this when there is obviously room on the left for a candidate whose fangs don't flow with blood.  Now there's your first real female American President (Hillary would have been your first Gorgon American President).

And here I was thinking Jill Stein was a Jewish American Princess when it turns out she is really a Nigerian Princess fronting for the Democrats:
"There’s also this little bit on her funding page: “We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting.” It also emphasizes that she “can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.”"
"By the Numbers: The Recount Scenarios (It is a Long Shot)".

"Daily Mail finds new depths to plumb, blames hypothetical immigrants for neo-Nazi's murder of Labour MP".  Of course, as with any patsy story, there is certainly much more to this than the simple inexplicable random neo-Nazi attack that the courts have enshrined into history.  What strikes me is the ease with which highly implausible stories are accepted, well, at least by the consistently lying media

"UK Passes Bill Providing Most Extreme Spying Powers In The Developed World".

"Foibles, Fables and Failures" (Petras):
"The media accused Trump of being a sexist, racist, anti-immigrant villain, all the while ignoring Secretary of State Clinton’s blood-soaked history of bombs and destruction, of killing of tens of thousands women in the Middle East and Africa and driving hundreds of thousands among the two million sub-Sahara Africans formerly employed in Libya under Gadhafi’s rule onto rotting ships in the Mediterranean Sea. Who in Madame’s media count the millions of people dispossessed or the 300,000 killed by the US-promoted mercenary invasion of Syria? Where were the feminists, who now dredge up Trump’s crude ‘crotch talk’, when millions of women and children of color were killed, injured, raped and dispossessed by Madame Clinton’s seven wars? Given the choice, most women would prefer to defend themselves from the stupid words of a vulgar misogynist over the threat of a Clinton-Obama predator drone ripping their families to shreds. Nasty, juvenile words do not compare with a history of bloody war crimes."
As I've said here before, this was an extremely clarifying American election in the deep understanding it gave us of what monsters inhabit the American 'left'.

Survivor people

It's funny, I was just going to comment on the phenomenon of bloggers that went into hiatus or semi-hiatus once Barry was elected, on the theory, I guess, that no more work was required as the US entered some kind of socialist/peacenik/environmentalist nirvana (while Barry let the banksters run wild, turned brown people into pink foam, and did fuck all to stop global warming, with Killary on line to be much, much worse), and have suddenly come back to life to battle the existential crisis of Trump.  It really puts the exclamation point on this horrible, psychotic asshole's disdain for the American 'left'.

This is wonderful:  "Hitler’s Babies":
". . . while I wish I could say that mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in America is solely a product of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency, the truth is much scarier. The blatantly racist and anti-Semitic alt-right movement that emerged during Trump’s campaign in fact mirrored the insinuating anti-Semitism that had already captured a prominent sector of the progressive left during the Obama years. This trend was apparently clear enough to the operatives who ran Hillary Clinton’s campaign that they decided that allowing the candidate to be seen in public talking to Jews on issues that concern them during either the primary or the general election campaign was a clear negative, to be avoided at all costs—a decision that likely lost her the state of Florida, and perhaps even the presidency.

The threat to our community is a new one, because it is coming from both extremes of the political spectrum and infiltrating mainstream discourse among both Republicans and Democrats. Together, anti-Semites of the right and the left are spreading a political virus once contained at the fringes of our society into a broad beat pulsing beneath the entire American political conversation. To understand why this is so dangerous, it is necessary for partisans on both sides to admit that it’s not just the other side that has a problem; we all do.

To do so, we must first be clear about what anti-Semitism is—and is not. Anti-Semitism is not a social prejudice against Jews; it’s a conspiracy theory. In fact, it’s the oldest and most powerful conspiracy theory in the West. You can be an anti-Semite without being particularly prejudiced against Jews in your personal interactions with them, and you can hold prejudiced views about Jews without being an anti-Semite. The person who finds Jews to be loud and vulgar and doesn’t want them in his country club is a bigot; if you asked him whether the reason he doesn’t like Jews is because they nefariously control the government and all the banks and are bent on world domination, he’d probably look at you as if you were insane.

Conversely, there are people—including some Jews!—who happily watch Seinfeld and eat bagels and lox, but who also believe that a secret conspiracy of Likudniks dragged America into war in Iraq, or are responsible for the latest financial crisis, or border crisis, which these Jews present in manipulative ways in the media, which is secretly controlled by George Soros or Sheldon Adelson. To any normal person, whatever their prejudices, the core of anti-Semitic thinking is sheer insanity. To anti-Semites, it is revelatory—whatever their political affiliations."
'Morons' have these 'insane' ideas that there might be a connection between the fact, say, that 'one-issue guys' essentially funded Killary's Presidential election campaign (not to mention Barry's billion dollar retirement fund), and the fact that American foreign policy is both consistently and clearly against American national interests (not to mention simple humanitarianism) and consistently and clearly advancing Yinon principles to build a Zionist Empire.

The new whiners

"The Liberation of the Slaves" (Shamir).  The comments find this too optimistic, but I am still struck by the doom and gloom of many on the 'left', who apparently were looking forward to Killary's WWIII and globalism.  Seriously, the 'exceptional' United States went to shit years ago, and dodging Killary was the greatest luck any group of people have ever had, so if you are just noticing Imperial Collapse now I have no respect for you.  The new whiners are a large part of the problem.

The usual:  "'DAPL protesters rely on RT, citizen journalists, as MSM goes missing in action'".

"Listening to Trump".  Something that has struck me throughout is that the content of Trump's speeches - and he gave a lot of them, extemporaneously, with considerable to and fro with the audiences, often many a day across the country, to huge audiences, while the invalid Killary was kept in a box by her 'expert' advisers - bears no resemblance whatsoever to the cartoon description of Trump by the Jew-controlled media.  The people who heard these speeches live - for the lies by the Jew-controlled media meant that was the only way to hear what Trump was saying - went out and voted for him.

"Trump's Victory as Reaction to the White Death".  "Struggling White Voters Who Helped Elect Trump Are Headed for Some Serious Pain".

Meathead

"Trump’s Tulsi Gabbard Factor" (Parry):
"Much will become apparent in Trump’s choice of Secretary of State. If it’s someone like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, or Rep. Gabbard or a libertarian from the Kochs’ world, that would be bad news for the neocons. If it’s someone like Romney, Giuliani, Bolton or Woolsey, then that will mean that President-elect Trump has blinked and the neocons can breathe a sigh of relief."
"Trump "Exploded" At Media Execs During Off-The-Record Meeting: "It Was A F--king Firing Squad"".  "NYT Advocates Internet Censorship" (Parry).  Before social media, the lyin' Jew-controlled media felt themselves to be bulletproof, as they all lied in sync and there was no possibility of reading the truth.

Trump uses YouTube.  Unmediated by the professional liars.

"This Hacker Rigged Elections in Nine Latin American Countries".  Old story comes back to life because of Trump.

Ken Roth nobly offers to commit seppoku.

"167 DAPL protesters injured in altercations with N. Dakota police - reports".  This almost a non-story in the American mainstream 'Real News' media (do a search - it is a much bigger story in Canada, and elsewhere).

I hate to keep harping on the same, entirely obvious, point, but the only reason the Democrats won't acknowledge their real problems, and keep coming up with wacky alternative explanations that allow all the old power brokers to remain, is that real change would involve removing Jewish control over the party.  It is literally as simple as that.

"The Right Way to Resist Trump" (note especially that whatsgoodforthejewsism will make any change in Democrat approach impossible, and we'll just see more of the same Trump-pumping mistakes):
"Mr. Berlusconi was able to govern Italy for as long as he did mostly thanks to the incompetence of his opposition. It was so rabidly obsessed with his personality that any substantive political debate disappeared; it focused only on personal attacks, the effect of which was to increase Mr. Berlusconi’s popularity. His secret was an ability to set off a Pavlovian reaction among his leftist opponents, which engendered instantaneous sympathy in most moderate voters. Mr. Trump is no different.

We saw this dynamic during the presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton was so focused on explaining how bad Mr. Trump was that she too often didn’t promote her own ideas, to make the positive case for voting for her. The news media was so intent on ridiculing Mr. Trump’s behavior that it ended up providing him with free advertising.

Unfortunately, the dynamic has not ended with the election. Shortly after Mr. Trump gave his acceptance speech, protests sprang up all over America. What are these people protesting against? Whether we like it or not, Mr. Trump won legitimately. Denying that only feeds the perception that there are “legitimate” candidates and “illegitimate” ones, and a small elite decides which is which. If that’s true, elections are just a beauty contest among candidates blessed by the Guardian Council of clerics, just like in Iran.

These protests are also counterproductive. There will be plenty of reasons to complain during the Trump presidency, when really awful decisions are made. Why complain now, when no decision has been made? It delegitimizes the future protests and exposes the bias of the opposition.

Even the petition calling for members of the Electoral College to violate their mandate and not vote for Mr. Trump could play into the president-elect’s hands. This idea is misguided. What ground would we then have to stand on when Mr. Trump tricks the system to obtain what he wants?


The Italian experience provides a blueprint for how to defeat Mr. Trump. Only two men in Italy have won an electoral competition against Mr. Berlusconi: Romano Prodi and the current prime minister, Matteo Renzi (albeit only in a 2014 European election). Both of them treated Mr. Berlusconi as an ordinary opponent. They focused on the issues, not on his character. In different ways, both of them are seen as outsiders, not as members of what in Italy is defined as the political caste."

If they are keeping it a secret there is a good chance the other country is Israel.

They've caught a suspect for the Ottawa spray paint artiste, captured on a surveillance camera, but the name is a big secret as he is a minor.
