GOOD NEWS: AMERICA IS MATURING AS A NATION

GOOD NEWS: AMERICA IS MATURING AS A NATION

Thanks to the internet and social media, Americans are now learning to distinguish between real and fake news

It’s getting harder to pull the wool over American voters’ eyes

The Reuters Institute For The Study Of Journalism recently released a report showing that trust levels in news media vary hugely by country. Trust is highest in affluent Western European nations, primarily due to the presence of well-funded public service broadcasters. Some 65 percent of people in Finland, for example, agreed that “you can trust most news most of the time”.

In the United States, however, the epicenter of the fake news storm unleashed by Lying Hillary and her lamestream media supporters, trust was far lower – just 33 percent.

ALTZAR: So, it’s working, its working!

As a longtime fighter for the Truth in Media, a non-profit endeavor I founded over a quarter century ago to counter the fake news in the mainstream media during the Balkan wars in the 1990s, I find this report quite heartening.

As a nation we are maturing, getting smarter, learning to depend more on our own wits, exercise judgment and use common sense, instead of placing a blind trust in the media and government institutions as many of our parents had.

What better proof of it than Donald Trump’s election win. Without the internet and the social media, Hillary and the hoards of her lying and cheating lamestream media supporters would have dominated the news and fooled most people. Just as CNN et. al. did in the 1990s, for example, in Bosnia and Kosovo. And Trump wouldn’t have stood the chance.

So it’s working, it’s working! Free spirit is returning to America. Slowly. But the pendulum is now swinging in the other direction. And the universe is unfolding as it should and always had.

1994 PREDICTION COMING TRUE

Over 22 years ago, I predicted that the PC/Internet revolutions would have a similar effect on mankind as had the invention of a handgun. They would level the playing field, I wrote in a Nov 12, 1994 article, and empower individuals and small businesses in the way we have not seen since Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance period (see PC/Internet Revolutions and Refusion of Arts and Scienceshttps://goo.gl/3bFaFg).

“With a handgun in her hand, a little old lady could confront a 500-pound gorilla – and win!,” I said.

[also see my 1997 FORBES column “Move over Einstein, Signor da Vinci Is Back”http://djurdjevic.com/Columns/forbes7-97.htm, and my speech in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in May 2006 (PDF) – https://goo.gl/jDMsWv%5D.

And that’s what happened on Nov 8. A Little Old Lady America loaded her handgun and shot down the fake news Hillary and her lamestream media cohorts were trying to advance. At the same time, Wikileaks kept releasing the real news about the most corrupt candidate who has ever run for president.

It was a modern David vs. Goliath story, In the end, the truth won. Which I find quite heartening after trying to advance its cause for over a quarter century.

LAMESTREAM MEDIA: WHO AND WHEN INVENTED THAT TERM?

I also find the widespread use of the term “lamestream” media quite heartening. In the early 1990s, my Irish-American friend, Peter Maher, a retired professor of linguistics at a Chicago university, were using that term in reference to media lies and deceptions about the war in Bosnia. I remember that I had to put it quotes because the spellchecker would reject it.

Not anymore. Now “everybody” is using it. And the spellchecker doesn’t mind it, either. Another small victory. ūüôā

TRUMP REACHES OUT TO RUSSIA

Truth in Media Editorial

TRUMP REACHES OUT TO RUSSIA

Congressional “death merchants'” war dogs start barking, fearing peace may break out

Truth be told, they and the lamestream media started barking against a possible Trump-Tillerson foreign policy ticket well before today’s announcement. And now, their worst fears have come true. They are losing control of US foreign policy, their sacred turf since almost a century ago. Neither Trump nor Tillerson are members of their “elite” New World Order clubs.

It was almost comical to see the headlines and the comments in the lamestream media about Donald Trump’s ultimate pick for Secretary of State, the Exxon-Mobil chairman Rex Tillerson.

Congressional war dogs, who have been for decades barking out venom against Russia as obedient servants of American corporate “death merchants,” are terrified that peace may finally break out. Which would mean they’d be, of course, out of work. So now they are threatening a fight over Tillerson’s confirmation.

Well, that’s sort of predictable. Having lost the election, they are now trying to sabotage the work Trump is trying to do. They will lose. As they did in November.

Maybe the Secretary of State confirmation hearings will give Rex Tillerson a chance to earn the¬†nickname T-Rex (Tyrannosaurus Rex) – the most fearsome of all prehistoric animals. Hopefully Rex¬†will devour the NWO congressional war dogs for breakfast, and then he and Trump together will finish off¬†their puppet masters for dinner. ūüôā That’s my wishful thinking anyway.

And then – peace may finally break out. God willing.

If that were to come to pass, I could even forgive Trump giving Hillary a free out of jail pass.

NEWS STORY (London Guardian)

Trump picks Tillerson for state department

Donald Trump has nominated Rex Tillerson, the president and chief executive of ExxonMobil, as secretary of state. ‚ÄúHis tenacity, broad experience and deep understanding of geopolitics make him an excellent choice for secretary of state,‚ÄĚ the president-elect said in a statement.

The selection of the ExxonMobil president marks the end of a drawn-out search to fill the position, during which time Trump considered several potential contenders, including former presidential candidate Mitt Romney ‚Äď who was very critical of Trump during the election campaign ‚Äď former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and former CIA chief David Petraeus.

However, Tillerson’s approval by the Senate is far from guaranteed. His close ties to Russia, where he has completed a number of projects and was awarded the Order of Friendship by Vladimir Putin in 2013, as well as his lack of experience will be cause for concern for senators from both parties.

TRUMP PUTS HIS FOOT DOWN ON CODDLING CHINA AND DEMONIZING RUSSIA

T-REX APPOINTMENT AND TAIWAN CALL COULD CAUSE A RIFT NOT JUST BETWEEN CHINA AND U.S. BUT ALSO BETWEEN CHINA AND RUSSIA

For a man who was said to have no foreign policy experience, Donald Trump¬†made two presidentially deft geopolitical moves this month. Both are¬†aimed at neutralizing China’s growing power in the world and stopping the demonization of Russia. ¬†So Trump is¬†already starting to shake up the world¬†even if he is not even president yet.

“ONE CHINA” CHALLENGE

Trump’s first bold move was to take¬†a phone call on Dec. 2 from Taiwan‚Äôs President, Tsai Ing-wen. This¬†set off alarms in Beijing. Red China’s leaders are now fearing¬†that Trump may¬†be¬†challenging their¬†longstanding ‚Äúone China‚ÄĚ policy.

If so, Trump will playing Nixon‚Äôs ‚ÄúChina-card‚ÄĚ in reverse, by wooing Moscow to isolate Beijing. And not just Nixon’s card. George H. Bush not only looked the other way when Chinese communist leaders massacred thousands of Tiananmen Square pro-democracy demonstrators on¬†June 4, 1989. He rewarded them with hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign investments that turned China into a virtual factory of the world over the next decade (see¬†China: Real Cold War Winner –¬†Russia Is Still a Bogey, March 2002 – https://goo.gl/Gct43i).

This writer had spent a lot of ink in his global business and geopolitical articles in the 1990s railing against the foolhardiness of such policies (see, for example,  Who Lost China?, Aug 1999 Рhttps://goo.gl/skw76B,  Killing Russia Softly, Apr 1997 Рhttps://goo.gl/C0Erm9).

REACHING OUT TO RUSSIA

Xi Jinping, China’s president, referred to Russia and China as ‚Äúfriends forever.‚Ä̬†That assertion will now have to pass a¬†Trump test.

russia-china-energy-deal

Because Trump’s second foreign policy move this month – appointing the ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson Secretary of State – threatens to cause¬†a possible rift between Russia and China. Until now, the two bedrock members of anti-New World Order BRICS organization – Russia and China – have been close allies, united in¬†their resistance to the U.S. global hegemony.

But¬†Tillerson enjoys historic ties with Vladimir Putin and Russia, where he was awarded the Order of Friendship, he enjoys no such history with China (see¬†‚ÄėFriends forever‚Äô? China wary of Rex Tillerson wooing away Russia, Guardian, Dec 14, 2016). And we already know what his new boss thinks of China.

WEAPONIZING US TREASURIES AGAINST CHINA

In fact, some commentators say that Trump may be¬†Weaponizing China’s $1.16 Trillion of US¬†Treasuries (e.g.,¬†Daniel Kruger, Forbes¬†CONTRIBUTOR).

China is the largest holder of US Treasuries. It held $1.16 trillion of U.S. government debt as of September. For more than a decade, politicians have expressed concern that China and other foreign government could use their significant stakes in Treasuries against the U.S. by dumping them on the market. Such a move would potentially drive borrowing costs in the U.S. higher, they argued.

True. But this¬†would also hurt China’s exports – the sacred cow of its communist government. Because should China try to dump the¬†Treasuries, it would weaken the dollar and bolster its currency, known variously as the yuan and the renminbi. Which means the price of Chinese goods would rise, thus diminishing their global market appeal.

So selling off treasuries would be China cutting off its nose to spite itself. Or shooting itself in the foot to hurt the U.S. Chinese leaders are ruthless communists but they are not stupid. And Trump knows it. So he is using their massive treasuries holdings as a weapon with which to wag their tail.

So do you still think America’s president-elect is inexperienced in foreign affairs?

UPDATE DEC 14, 2016 

HOW U.S. (Bill Clinton) RIGGED RUSSIA’S 1996 ELECTION FOR YELTSIN’S SECOND TERM

What’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander?

During presidential campaign, and even now, the lamestream media keep fabricating stories about Russia’s alleged rigging of the U.S. election without offering any proof. Perhaps that’s because the establishment stooges remember how they did just that in Russia 20 years ago.

In early¬†1996, Boris Yeltsin’s approval rate was in the single digits. He had carried out a presidential coup, started a sham¬†war in Chechnya, and had helped oligarchs pillage the nation which¬†brought the economy to its knees, with people like this little girl in Moscow starving and forced to beg for food.

killing-russia-softly

Yet in July 1996, he was elected president for the second time. How did this happen?

“It¬†took one of the most unfair, costliest and most fraudulent election battles in the history of democracy,” writes¬†Mark Nicholas¬†on¬†Dec 12, 2016 in RUSSIA INSIDER.¬†“All with the complicity of the United States which backed the Russian alcoholic in chief every step of the way (as it had during the ’93 coup).”

(see¬†If Russia Did Rig the US Election It Would Only Be Payback for Yeltsin’s Second Term: http://russia-insider.com/en/if-russia-did-rig-us-election-it-would-only-be-payback-yeltsins-second-term/ri18129).

Alleging Russia’s complicity in Donald Trump’s win is merely a sign of desperation. Like Don Quixote, the New World Order establishment are swinging at the windmills. They won’t be doing it for much longer.

Even before¬†Trump has been sworn in, he¬†is starting to drive the New World Order snakes out of America, just as Saint Patrick did in Ireland in the 5th century (see the Truth in Media editorial¬†New World Order Snakes to Be Expelled from America, Oct 24, 2016). ¬†That’s a hopeful sign.

Let us pray that he continues draining the swamp faithfully after he assumes office.

PS: By the way, Russia, Serbia and China were the only countries that expected Trump to win. Take a look at this chart.

Truth in Media Editorial – Part 4

UPDATE DEC 15, 2016 

TOWARD A TRIPOLAR WORLD

If Donald Trump is really as smart as his early moves suggest, he will realize that alienating China will NOT “Make America Great¬†Again,” his election slogan. Only a true partnership between the three global power centers will. Which, at the present time means, the U.S., Russia and China.

Why?

Because since time immemorial, triangles have been the building blocks that offer both strength and stability.

Think Trinity if you are religiously inclined. Think Giza Pyramids if you are a history buff. Think Merkaba*, an¬†ancient symbol of creation, if you are¬†spiritually endowed. Think milking stool, if you are a farmer. A milking stool has three legs for one simple reason. It’s nearly impossible to knock it over. Which comes handy with a restless cow. Or a world in a state of flux.

el-don-tripolar.jpg

The 20th century has shown us that bipolar worlds do not work. Superpowers do not last. Before you know it, one partner will switch sides and turn on the other. They are easy to knock down and can lead to anarchy. And to world wars.

So if Trump really wants to make America great again, he must do so by mending fences with all nations, especially the most power-hungry ones. Like China. Not by appeasing them. Not by bombing them. Nor bribing them with U.S. investments. But by using the U.S. assets as leverage against China’s power plays so as to keep its ambitions in check.

Let us hope and pray that Trump is as wise as he is smart.

*NOTE: Merkaba is a geometrically precise field that is formed from the pattern of the first eight cells of the fertilized zygote. The location of these eight cells is in the geometrical center of the human body in the base or root chakra. The eight cells also provide the center point for all of the energy fields and grids that surround the body. Thus, the Merkaba field is the matrix of creation.

Merkaba¬†is both an Egyptian and Hebrew word for the field of light energy and information that radiates from the human body as the star tetrahedron, also known as the Star of David. Here it is as the sacred place at¬†the Earth’s solar chakra at the Rainbow Shower in Maui. Around the two triangles is the circle which provides the balance between them. And around the circles are the 12 petals of the Zodiac system, completing the ancient Sanskrit symbol of Anahata – the heart chakra.

LET US REJOICE: NEW DAWN RISES OVER AMERICA AND THE WORLD

BREAKING THE SHACKLES OF NEW WORLD ORDER SLAVERY

Did you hear that clang at 1:11 AM last night? It was the sound of the New World Order shackles hitting the ground. At that auspicious moment Рthe Masters  #111 on a Masters #11 day (11-09-2016) РDonald Trump was officially declared winner.

And we, the American people, did it. We broke those shackles and have now started to tear down the walls and chains with which the plutocrats of the New World Order have kept us enslaved.

Just like the Britons did on June 24 when they voted for Brexit.  Just like the French did on July 14, 1789 when ordinary folk stormed the Bastille and overthrew their aristocratic oppressors. Fortunately, we and the British people did it peacefully, armed with but a pen or a finger at a ballot box.

MY OCT 16-19 DREAMTIME PREDICTION: TRUMP WILL WIN

Three weeks ago,¬†Spirit guides helped me predict Trump’s victory in three continuous dreams – on Oct 16, 18 and 19 (see NEW WORLD ORDER SNAKES TO BE EXPELLED FROM AMERICAhttp://wp.me/p3QU1S-1TK). Here’s the gist:

“Like Saint Patrick in Ireland, Donald Trump and the American people will drive away from America the New World Order snakes on Nov 8, 2016.”

MOZART’S SYMPHONY #40: A DREAMTIME PRECURSOR OF TRUMP’S VICTORY, NOW A NEW DAWN SYMPHONY

The night before the election day, I played this symphony in my dream. Literally… fingering and all. It was very vivid. And it felt like a victory song – a joyful celebration. Perhaps an Ode to Trump? A precursor of his victory.

A NEW DAWN SYMPHONY

Tonight (Nov 8), as the votes are still being counted across the country, I played it again live. And now, I also want to share it also with you. This is the version I recorded over two years ago as my birthday gift from Mozart. It is one of the most UPLIFTING piece of music ever written. Which was fitting at a time the American people were breaking the shackles of the New World Order.

MOZART SYMPHONY #40 (“ROO SYMPHONY” – now a “NEW DAWN SYMPHONY”) – a film by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic – his¬†70th birthday gift from Mozart – music recorded entirely on a Clavinova on May 30, 2015 – some video clips from a Mozart concert at the Musikverein were recorded in Vienna on May 17, 2014

STAY VIGILANT: LET’S NOT HAVE A¬†REAGAN¬†FIFTH COLUMN ENCORE

The universe is unfolding as it should and as expected. But at this time of joy and jubilation, we also must stay vigilant. We must not rest until all the New World Order snakes have been driven from our shores or put behind bars.  So we can start to rebuild our society into making America great again.

And to do that, we must not allow the New World Order plutocrats to surround Trump with their minions as they did with Ronald Reagan in the 1981 and beyond. For more on that, see my Oct 23 post:

BEIRUT EMBASSY BOMBING: REAGAN’S BAPTISM BY FIRE AND HUMILIATION BY NEW WORLD ORDER’S FIFTH COLUMN IN HIS CABINET

Will the Same Happen with Trump When He Is Elected? –¬†https://is.gd/mMcRHn

Oct 23, 2016

IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN SMOTHER HIM

ALTZAR: Ronald Reagan was the only US president in the last half a century who was not a card-carrying member of the globalist New World Order organizations, such as the Council for Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Group, for example. Like Donald Trump, he was elected because he was an outspoken critic of such establishment “elites.”

What happened in the aftermath of the Beirut embassy bombing was a perfect example of how these New World Order globalists deal with a popular outsider. They muzzle him by surrounding him with loyal members of their societies which would advance their agendas and interests no matter what a sitting president may think.

Like Caspar Weinberger, for example, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense, who was a member of both CFR and Trilateral Commission. In the end, he and his NWO cronies overpowered the popular president. Reagan was forced to retreat from Lebanon without retaliation because of the NWO-US multinational companies’ oil interests in the region. As a result, 241 American Marines and 58 French paratroopers lost their lives for nothing. Reagan left Lebanon with his tail between his legs despite his initial aggressive rhetoric.

Which is why it will be interesting to see what happens AFTER Donald Trump is elected on Nov 7. Will he allow the NWO bosses to overwhelm him with their picks for cabinet appointments as was the case with Reagan?

We must pray that our new president remains clear-headed about who his true friends and enemies are and does not allow the NWO fifth column anywhere near his White House. And we must also insist that¬†he deliver on his promise to bring Hillary and Obama administration officials to justice as co-conspirators in her crimes (see¬†TRUMP SHOULD REVOKE HILLARY’S PASSPORT –¬†https://is.gd/UCfRF9).

IGNORE LAMESTREAM LIBERAL MEDIA FROM NOW ON AND WATCH THEM WITHER AND DIE AS SURELY AS PLUMS TURN TO PRUNES

Or start to brown-nose Trump

One of the best things that have happened during the last year of US election is that the lamestream media have become thoroughly discredited.  If there was ever any doubt before that they are nothing but empty suits and dresses in service of the New World Order plutocrats, there should be none left now.

No more TV

The likes of Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN etc. have lied through their teeth throughout the campaign; they have blatantly and unashamedly supported the most corrupt candidate ever to run for president; they have invented bogus stories to smear Trump; some have even paid bimbos to lie about their alleged sexual dalliances with our new president.

In other words, the so-called “mainstream” media¬†have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are trashy whores of the New World Order. The fact that we, the American people, elected Donald Trump president despite their propaganda, is heartening. It means we are not all brainwashed. And that¬†offers¬†hope for America to be beautiful again.

So all we need to do in the future is to continue to ignore the lamestream media stories, shows, and other propaganda packaged as “entertainment.”

How do we do it? Easy. Just cancel your cable TV subscription and keep only the Internet. That’s what I did years ago and have never looked back.¬†First we have to stop the brainwashing before we can start cleansing the minds and teaching the public how to THINK again.

Without us as their audience, these media whores will wither and die eventually just as surely as plums turn to prunes.

NO ‘LIBERAL’ GUARDIAN ‘MEA CULPA,’ ONLY STUNNED SURPRISE

The fact that Trump won and did it so convincingly was only a surprise to the arrogant “liberal” media who had been shamelessly bending over backward to push Hillary into the White House.

The Guardian, a left wing British newspaper, doggedly attacked Trump and blindly supported Hillary throughout the campaign.  In fact, their reporting of the US Election reminded me of a famous quote by another British writer РArnold Bennett (1867-1931):

arnold-bennett

“Journalists say a thing that they know isn’t true in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough it will be true.”

Well, that didn’t happen this time around. So the Guardian is left with a large egg on its face. Yet, no ‘mea culpa’ or any other sign of humility from its editors.

Here’s an excerpt from Guardian’s¬†today’s editorial ruminating about ‘what went wrong,’ when actually everything went right, except for those wearing a “liberal” blindfold:

The triumph of Donald Trump

In a stunning turnaround at the end of a bitter and polarizing election campaign, Republican Donald Trump was declared president-elect at 2.30 amthis morning. The result, delivered with a clear electoral majority, was immediately declared one of the greatest presidential election upsets. ‚ÄúSorry to keep you waiting, complicated business, complicated business,‚ÄĚ the billionaire businessman and former Apprentice host told supporters gathered to hear his victory speech at a New York hotel. ‚ÄúI will be a president for all Americans,‚ÄĚ he said.

Trump won 279 electoral delegates, with three states yet to be called, winning the crucial battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio. The Democrats‚Äô ‚Äúblue wall‚ÄĚ in the midwest, including Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, crumbled against all poll predictions. But the Republicans didn‚Äôt just take the White House, they kept control of the House and Senate. Trump‚Äôs opponent Hillary Clinton, defeated in her quest to make history as the first female president, conceded the race in a phone call on Wednesday morning but did not address her hundreds of dumbstruck supporters who had gathered at the Javits Convention Center in New York.

How Trump won

Trump is the first reality television star and the first non-politician since Dwight Eisenhower to win the nomination for president of a major political party. He was the first to spend part of his campaign denying sexual assault allegations and clashing with the family of a fallen soldier and a Miss Universe winner. At 70, he is the oldest person in history to be elected US president. His winning formula was to copy Ronald Reagan‚Äôs simple promise to make America great again and, according to exit polling data, focusing on fears around terrorism, immigration and trade. It was an appeal to the heart, not the head, and his supporters overlooked his obvious flaws.¬†(for more, see…¬†https://is.gd/AqWUrQ)

THIS ELECTION PROVED THE POWER OF THE INTERNET

This election has also demonstrated the power of the Internet. None of this would have been possible had we not had access to alternative news sources and social media channels. So we must cherish and protect those sources from interference by the government agencies, like the NSA or FBI, or from subservience by the IT stooges of the New World Order, like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

google-spy-header-2

Which reminded me of an article I published on that topic 22 years ago, in November 1994, when the word Internet was still highlighted in red by the PC spellcheckers:

pc-and-internet-1994

“Two decades ago, I likened the¬†PC¬†and the¬†Internet¬†revolutions to the invention of a handgun.

‚ÄúThey¬†empower the individual and small companies¬†to compete with industrial giants on a level playing field,‚ÄĚ I wrote in a landmark Annex Bulletin (End of Western Dominance? Refusion of Arts & Sciences,¬†Nov 1994 – http://www.djurdjevic.com/Bulletins/global/94-52_End_of_West.html).

I was wrong. It was much more than that. The PC and the Internet did empower individuals not just to compete with industrial giants but to even win.  Witness Google, Apple (resurgence),  Facebook, and hundreds of other companies that have emerged as IT leaders since then.

As a result, they unleashed a tsunami of creativity around the globe. ¬†Which, in turn, led to a restructuring of the social and political order in many countries.”

Such as in the U.S. in November 2016.

ASSANGE: BETTER LEAKER THAN ANALYST, WAS WRONG ABOUT TRUMP 3 DAYS BEFORE ELECTION

In a TV interview with John Pilger, an independent fellow Australian-born journalist, filmed at the Ecuadorian embassy in London and broadcast¬†three days before the election (Nov 5), Wikileaks founder Julian Assange predicted that Trump “would not be allowed to win.”

screen-shot-2016-11-09-at-3-39-32-pm

By saying that, the man who has done more than any other human on the planet to expose Hillary’s crimes, transgressions, lies and distortions, proved himself to be a better info. leaker than an analyst. Here’s a part of that interview¬†Assange said:

Pilger also questioned Assange over increasingly frequent accusations from the Clinton camp, and Western media, that WikiLeaks is looking to swing next week‚Äôs US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump ‚Äď perhaps at Russia‚Äôs behest.

But Assange dismissed the prospect of Trump, who is behind in the polls, winning as unlikely ‚Äď and not necessarily due to his standing with the electorate.

‚ÄúMy analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,‚ÄĚ said Assange. ‚ÄúBanks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves.‚ÄĚ (for more, see… http://on.rt.com/7tv7).

I remember shaking my head in disbelief when I read that segment on Nov 5.

“Why has he suddenly gone soft?” I wondered. “Is Assange trying to appease Hillary if she gets elected? Or was it that she just faith and conviction and was also under the spell of NWO establishment and media power?”¬†It takes real guts to swim against such a tidal wave.
But Assange’s sudden softness¬†seemed so out of character for a man who has fearlessly given his freedom to the cause of truth and full disclosure. So I just filed this story in the back of my memory. Until now.

THE AMERICAN TRAGEDY: NEARLY 60 MILLION OF AMERICANS VOTED FOR THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN HISTORY

This election demonstrates the success of New World Order’s Dumbing Down of America,” and the need to start re-educating our fellow citizens

Back in 1997, I published¬†a column in¬†the Washington Times titled ¬†DANCING ‚ÄėROUND THE GOLDEN¬†CALF. My original title for that piece was “Dumbing Down of America.” The fact that two decade later, nearly 60 million of our fellow citizens voted for the most corrupt candidate in the history of U.S. presidential races, attests to the success of New World Order plutocrats’¬†dumbing down process. And that is a true American Tragedy.

So what’s to be done?

Well, neutralize and eliminate the plutocrats. Drive the New World Order snakes¬†from our shores or put them behind bars. That’s the first order of business as I said earlier.

Then we must start to repair the damage they have done to several generations of our fellow-citizens with their quasi “liberal” ideas, with their greed-driven ¬†materialistic morality, with their¬†our education system which denigrates America’s traditional culture and values, with their Hollywood and pro sports-driven agendas.

It has taken several decades to dumb down our nation. It will take us as long or longer to steer America back on its righteous path of liberty and justice for all. ¬†But as Confucius said, “a thousand mile journey begins with the first step.”

We took that step today. Let us continue and persevere in making America great again. ¬†With God’s help.

Letter to a “liberal” friend and Hillary supporter in Australia:

GET READY TO EAT A LARGE BOWL OF CROW

I have a longtime and dear friend in Australia. Trouble is, he is a died in the wool “liberal” and a Hillary supporter. Which is like going around with blinkers. ¬†You only see what “they” want you to see.

My friend has been occasionally writing to me during the last several months with critical comments about my editorials and predictions. Such as that we should ignore the liberal lamestream media polls and just get out and vote.

Occasionally, I would also reply with a disagreeable comment of my own. But realizing the futility of such arguments, I mostly suggested we both bide our time and bite our tongues until Nov 8. And now that the Election Day has come and gone, here’s a message I have just sent to to my friend in Australia:

“I hope you are ready to eat a VERY LARGE BOWL OF CROW, my mate. Sorry I could not quickly find an image of a bowl big enough to suit the purpose.

You should eat crow not just because of the election results and Trump’s victory. But because of extreme arrogance that you and your liberal brethren around the world have shown toward anyone who did not share your views. Such as yours truly who has been saying all along that we should IGNORE the lamestream media polls because they are biased and therefore will be proven wrong in the end.”

NEW YORK TIMES’ ELECTION DAY FLIP-FLOPS

Check this out, “fresh” off the press from a leading liberal lamestream media organization – the New York Times:

“The New York Times runs an election tracker web page that calculates the odds of presidential victory, popular vote margins, and projected Electoral College totals, in addition to monitoring the final state-by-state results.

At the beginning of Election Eve, the tracker gave Hillary Clinton an 85% to win the election. Within two hours, the odds had shifted to a 50-50 race. At 10:30 PM Eastern time, with the last few decisive swing states waiting to be called, the odds stood at 90% for Trump.

Now, at 11:15 MST (1:15 AM Eastern), the New York Times is calling for Trump to win 308 electoral votes with 95% certainty. “

WATCH OUT FOR “LIBERAL” TURNCOATS: THEY COULD BE¬†THE FIFTH COLUMN IN TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

Every time there is a momentous change in the world history, such as what just happened in the U.S., the minions and apparatchiks who had faithfully served the fallen regime rush into their closets to put on the new regime uniforms. And pretend that they were for Trump all along.

So stand by for lots of brown-nosers to crawl out of the rat holes where Hillary and Obams ¬†loyalists had been living. We must not let them come anywhere near Trump. ¬†Lest they infest him with the “liberal” rat poison they were spreading across the U.S. and around the world.

What brought this on?

A memory of this image I saw in Bosnia in 1992 when I was working as a war correspondent. It was September 1992. The Bosnian had not even been into its 6th month. The fall of the Soviet Union was merely nine months old.  Yet the local communist turncoats, who had faithfully served Tito, a mass-murderer of the first class, were discarding their red stars like excess baggage.

Over the next year or so, stand ¬†by for similar “transformations” of the HIllary and Obama “liberals” here in the U.S.

Because,¬†people like Hillary, Obama and their followers are the antithesis of anything “liberal.” They have made this noble term into a dirty word. Because the so-called “liberals” in America and around the world are anything but LIBERAL. They are the MOST INTOLERANT segment of our society. They foster dictatorship of minorities. They only believe in “their way or highway.”

Witness the violent protests some of them are launching as we speak against the free will of the American people who have elected Donald Trump as our president. We must stop them. And then just stomp on them to keep them down in the dustbin of history where they belong. Along with Hillary and Obama.

DUMP THE MEDIA “PUNDITS”

So-called “pundits” have been wrong about everything, including stock market reaction to Trump victory

screen-shot-2016-11-11-at-8-57-53-am

Take a look at this stock market chart. What do you see?

What I see is a large egg on the faces of mainstream media and its so-called “pundits.” They have been wrong about everything, including stock market reaction to Trump victory.

Even one of the leading lamestream media whores – the New York Times – now admits that. Here’s an excerpt from its today’s story:

“To the long list of pundits who called the election all wrong ‚ÄĒ as well as its likely consequences ‚ÄĒ add Wall Street analysts.

As the presidential election approached, they were falling all over themselves to predict a Hillary Clinton victory and, afterward, a modest stock market rally. The prospect of a win by Donald J. Trump was so remote as to be deemed a ‚Äúblack swan,‚ÄĚ an event that was only distantly possible but would have potentially dire consequences for financial markets.

Among the many predicting a drop in equity markets in the unlikely event of a Trump victory were analysts at Citibank, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley. Keith Parker, head of cross-asset strategy research at Barclays, forecast a drop of 11 to 13 percent in the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index.

The hedge fund Bridgewater Associates went even further, warning clients that the Dow Jones industrial average would fall 2,000 points. (see New York Times, Nov 11, 2016)

The New York Post was even tougher on the “pundits” in its yesterday’s story¬†Pundits were spectacularly wrong about the 2016¬†election:

Boy, were they wrong.

Pundits botched the presidential election in epic fashion ‚ÄĒ claiming for months that Hillary Clinton was a lock for the presidency before being shocked back to reality by Donald Trump‚Äôs victory Tuesday night.

Longtime political researchers and experts, including Nate Silver of the closely watched site FiveThirtyEight, predicted that Clinton had numerous broad paths to the 270 Electoral College votes that would place her in the White House, while Trump had only a few narrow ones.

Numerous media outlets and personalities projected a decisive win for the former secretary of state ‚ÄĒ including New York magazine, which slapped a grotesque photo of Trump on its cover with the word ‚ÄúLoser‚ÄĚ just days before Election Day.

Deadspin columnist and GQ correspondent Drew Magary went so far as to publish a scathing piece about the Republican candidate on Sunday ‚ÄĒ titled ‚ÄúDonald Trump Is Going To Get His Ass Kicked On Tuesday.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúThis isn‚Äôt close, and never was,‚ÄĚ he wrote.

Foreign Policy magazine was so sure of a Clinton victory that it published an article in July titled ‚ÄúThe Republican Party Is On the Verge of Extinction.‚ÄĚ

Not to be outdone, a month later, The Hill followed up with an opinion piece written by a contributor headed ‚ÄúTrump‚Äôs loss could make the GOP extinct.‚ÄĚ

But once the ballots were counted, Republicans took control of the White House, Senate and House.

What’s To Be Done?

  • Well, step one, as I have said before is – dump the lamestream media and its “pundits,” unplug your TV from network broadcasts and do your own research on the internet using many independent sources.
  • Step two, if you own any stock market equities, dump them now!¬†The stock market may be up for the time being, but it is a bubble that will eventually burst. And you don’t want to end up holding the bag when that happens. Better to forego some short-term gains, than to face larger losses down the road. (Even some of the “pundits” now agree with me on this – “Why this post-election jump in the stock market probably means nothing” –¬†see¬†https://is.gd/6D203V).

dice-goldbarsWhy am I not bullish on the current bull market?

Because it’s all smoke and mirrors. The stock market is¬†nothing more than a legalized casino with traders in¬†pin-stripe suits placing much bigger bets than the¬†Las Vegas gamblers.

Here’s what I wrote about it way back in 1998 in a story titled “The Raging Bull of Wall Street Is Just That – Bull!:

“Wall Street has become almost totally decoupled from the nation’s economic activities. Like a gambling casino, it is largely driven by investment cash flows, not profits or losses of the companies it trades.” (The Raging Bull of Wall Street Is Just That – Bull!¬†(1998)

We are also “pleased” because we have been saying at least since 1997 that Wall Street has become a casino, and that corporate fundamentals have little to do anymore with stock values. ¬†(Wall Street Casino (2002).

In fact, if you CLICK HERE, you will be able to see SEVERAL DOZEN articles I had written between 1997 and 2002 on the subject of the Wall Street Casino.

If you do that and still decide to chase the rainbows at the Wall Street Casino, that’s okay. At least I won’t have you on my conscience.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

As a business consultant and financial and IT industry analyst, I have spent a lifetime blowing the smoke out of¬†my clients’ eyes trying to help them see clearly what’s ahead.

And¬†who were these clients? Well, they were large multinational companies, the “Who’s Who” in the IT industry during the 1980s and 1990s, starting with IBM and then going down the list.

AUTHOR’S¬†NOTE: I invite¬†those of you who only know me by¬†my geopolitical, war reporting, artistic, musical or¬†shamanic hats – also to check out my two business websites. They are now inactive (I retired in 2014) but are still very much relevant: Annex Research (1978-2013) ¬†–¬†http://djurdjevic.com/ and Annex Research (2013-2014¬†– http://annexresearch.wordpress.com/. ¬†And it is this kind of business consulting work¬†that¬†actually paid for all my other activities by which I am perhaps better known.¬†You will find there many stories which can help you understand why I think that dumping your stock holdings now (if you still have some), will serve you well in the future.

Levity Interlude: A Letter from Canada

Got a letter from an old friend in Canada this morning. “For your chuckle,” his note read. Actually, it almost made spit. Read my reply to him at the end to see why.

NEWS UPDATE FROM CANADA

The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past couple days. The Republican presidential victory is prompting an exodus of left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, global-warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

“I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a¬†Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota.

“He was cold, exhausted and hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?”

[snip] – the letter continues in the same SNL mocking style. Here’s my reply:

ALTZAR: Funny, but I only wish it were true. These scumbags are not known for keeping their promises any more than Hillary is known for telling the truth. Besides, why would Canada agree to be a dumping ground for the U.S. trash?

PS; Rather than wait for them to leave the U.S., which might take till hell freezes over, perhaps Trump should deport them to Saudi Arabia. Where they can give concerts in the desert to help pay off the Saudi’s $25 million investment in Hillary. :-)

This also, just in from Canada…

“Liberal” media establishment stooges now switch their attacks from Trump to his cabinet and staff appointments

LIKE A PACK OF WOLVES, LAMESTREAM MEDIA NOW ATTACKING STEPHEN BANNON TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM TRUMP’S APPOINTMENT OF ESTABLISHMENT SHILL REINCE PRIEBUS AS WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF

Remember that New York Times’ publisher apology for blowing the election? Well, predictably, it was short lived. The liberal media establishment whores are back to their old tactics – smearing anybody and anything to do with Donald Trump.

Yes, these same unrepentant media folks who UNSUCCESSFULLY demonized Trump and ended up with the largest egg on their face in history of American journalism. Undaunted, they are now switching their attacks from Trump to his cabinet and staff appointments.

The Truth in Media members have proven themselves capable of sniffing out BS stories when they see one. And they know what to do with them – file them in the overflowing “liberal news” trash bin.

BEWARE: THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!

Meanwhile, why not focus instead on how these same election LOSERS are now trying muzzle Trump by inserting fifth column people of their own among his staff appointments. Like “Reince” Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, whom Trump has just named White House Chief of Staff. I fear that over time, Trump may end up like Reagan – surrounded by New World Order establishment shills.

Check out this piece I published over three weeks ago warning about that – long before Trump was even elected. And, it has already started happening. So we must stay vigilant to make sure Trump does not stray from the path we followed him on.

DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA – NOW ON VIDEO – IN FLESH AND BLOOD

A wonderful video. The authors even used the title of my Aug 1997 Washington Times column “Dumbing Down of America” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1ST (the WT editors retitled it to DANCING ‘ROUND THE GOLDEN CALF).
Here’s a link to this video on Facebook:
