Robert Mercer: the big data billionaire waging war on mainstream media | Politics. This article is the subject of a legal complaint on behalf of Cambridge Analytica LLC and SCL Elections Limited. Just over a week ago, Donald Trump gathered members of the world’s press before him and told them they were liars. “The press, honestly, is out of control,” he said. “The public doesn’t believe you any more.”

CNN was described as “very fake news… story after story is bad”. The BBC was “another beauty”. That night I did two things. Trump had spoken, and his audience had heard him. I click Google’s first suggested link. Another couple of clicks and I discover that it receives a large bulk of its funding – more than $10m in the past decade – from a single source, the hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer. It’s money he’s made as a result of his career as a brilliant but reclusive computer scientist. One of its funds, Medallion, which manages only its employees’ money, is the most successful in the world – generating $55bn so far. A few weeks later, the Observer received a letter. The Age of Trump by Joseph E. Stiglitz. NEW YORK – On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. I would hate to say “I told you so,” but his election should not have come as a surprise.

As I explained in my 2002 book Globalization and its Discontents, the policies we have used to manage globalization have sown the seeds of widespread disaffection. Ironically, a candidate from the same party that has pushed the hardest for international financial and trade integration won by promising to undo both. Of course, there is no going back. China and India are now integrated into the global economy, and technological innovation is reducing the number of manufacturing jobs worldwide.

Trump cannot recreate the well-paying manufacturing jobs of past decades; he can only push for advanced manufacturing, which requires higher skill sets and employs fewer people. Johns Hopkins' Top Psychotherapist Releases Terrifying Diagnosis Of President Trump. If there’s one thing we can say about Donald Trump, it’s that he’s unlike any other world leader we’ve seen to date. The problem, however, is that his differences fail to set him apart in a positive manner.

Almost daily, Trump tweets about the “biased media,” “fake news,” or a world leader who has suddenly done something so terrible that he must take to Twitter to publicly berate them. Notice, however, that it’s always someone else with the problem. It’s never him. However, John D. Gartner, a registered psychotherapist from the renowned Johns Hopkins University Medical School seems to think Trump may, in fact, be the one with the problem.

Gartner, who teaches psychiatric residents at Hopkins, decided to break the ethical code known as the “Goldwater Rule” in order to warn the American public about the dangerousness of our new commander-in-chief’s mental state. Trump’s Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton called it first. Malignant narcissists are: So there you have it. Like this: Pentagon Video Proves 9/11 Cover-Up AnonHQ. Intelligence By: Anonymous 23 at anonews Now, since I’ve been researching into September 11th, 2001, I’ve noticed peculiar things about the Pentagon that are very interesting like the Pentagon confiscating the video from the gas station across the street, and the video from a hotel had their video confiscated as well.

That was the rumors online anyway. The gas station ended up suing to retrieve their video. Now, the Pentagon has many videos outside focused in on the parking lot and other aspects surrounding the building. Supposedly, there are 86 outside cameras. Only one 5 frame video was released to the public, and it barely showed a plane. Many people wanted the Pentagon to release the other security tapes that was shot outside of the Pentagon.

January 16th, 2015 | by EV Activism For many of us, the morning of September 11, 2001 will forever remain seared in our memory. It was a shock that resounded throughout the nation, and the world. For those of us who watched the tragedy unfold that morning, we were forever left with unanswered questions. Why had it initially been reported as a controlled demolition, and why were people reporting the sounds of explosions before, during, and after the first, and eventual second plane struck? What happened to these initial reports by that afternoon?

Eyewitness reports from September 11, 2001: Today, many people are unaware of the frightening details behind the attack.

The Republican Party’s attempt to treat Donald Trump as a normal political candidate would be laughable were it not so perilous to the republic.

If only he would mouth the party’s “conservative” principles, all would be well. But of course the entire Trump phenomenon has nothing to do with policy or ideology. It has nothing to do with the Republican Party, either, except in its historic role as incubator of this singular threat to our democracy. Trump has transcended the party that produced him.

His growing army of supporters no longer cares about the party. And the source of allegiance?

The Dangerous Acceptance of Donald Trump. “Vice is a monster of so frightful mien, / As, to be hated, needs but to be seen,” the poet Alexander Pope wrote, in lines that were once, as they said back in the day, imprinted on the mind of every schoolboy. Pope continued, “Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face, / we first endure, then pity, then embrace.” The three-part process by which the gross becomes the taken for granted has been on matchlessly grim view this past week in the ascent of Donald Trump.

First merely endured by those in the Republican Party, with pained grimaces and faint bleats of reluctance, bare toleration passed quickly over into blind, partisan allegiance—he’s going to be the nominee, after all, and so is our boy. Now for the embrace. One by one, people who had not merely resisted him before but called him by his proper name—who, until a month ago, were determined to oppose a man they rightly described as a con artist and a pathological liar—are suddenly getting on board. No, you can’t. America Has Never Been So Ripe for Tyranny -- NYMag. And right now, America is a breeding ground for tyranny. Illustration by Zohar Lazar As this dystopian election campaign has unfolded, my mind keeps being tugged by a passage in Plato’s Republic. It has unsettled — even surprised — me from the moment I first read it in graduate school. The passage is from the part of the dialogue where Socrates and his friends are talking about the nature of different political systems, how they change over time, and how one can slowly evolve into another.

And Socrates seemed pretty clear on one sobering point: that “tyranny is probably established out of no other regime than democracy.” What did Plato mean by that? This rainbow-flag polity, Plato argues, is, for many people, the fairest of regimes. The very rich come under attack, as inequality becomes increasingly intolerable. And it is when a democracy has ripened as fully as this, Plato argues, that a would-be tyrant will often seize his moment.

Perhaps. Plato, of course, was not clairvoyant. Diariodocentrodomundo.com. O socialista Bernie Sanders, pré candidato do Partido Democrata Por Glenn Greenwald, no Intercept (tradução de Antonio Martins para o 247). A elite política e a mídia britânica perderam pouco a pouco a cabeça, após a eleição de Jeremy Corbyn para a liderança do Partido Trabalhista – e ainda não parecem capazes de se recuperar. Nos Estados Unidos, Bernie Sanders é bem menos radical; os dois não estão sequer na mesma constelação política. Mas, especialmente em temas econômicos, Sanders é um crítico mais robusto e sistêmico do que os centros do poder oligárquico julgariam tolerável. Sua denúncia contra o controle da vida política pelas corporações é uma ameaça grave. Por isso, ele é visto como a versão norte-americana do extremismo de esquerda e uma ameaça ao poder do establishment.

Uma pesquisa revelou, semana passada, que Sanders tem uma clara liderança entre os eleitores mais jovens inclusive as mulheres. Dá O Que Pensar | A estarrecedora confissão de um ‘assassino econômico’ americano. Corrupção, manipulação da mídia, “acidentes” fatais, assassinatos. Segundo John Perkins, ex-agente a serviço da NSA, é dessa forma que os Estados Unidos constrói seu império no mundo. Perkins, o denunciante, sabe o que diz: participou diretamente do esquema internacional. Em seu livro – e no vídeo que reproduzimos abaixo – fica claro que vale tudo para que os interesses americanos prevaleçam sempre sobre os anseios dos povos locais. O que ele revela no vídeo é estarrecedor.

Assista. Qualquer semelhança com a dívida que sufoca o Brasil não é mera coincidência. O americano John Perkins, ex-agente a serviço da NSA (a Agência de Segurança Nacional americana) e autor do livro “Confissões de um Assassino Econômico”, revelou em seu livro mais famoso como funciona a tática de ‘assassinatos econômicos’ usada pelos EUA e suas corporações para corromper presidentes mundo afora, endividar e subjugar nações. Viral Facebook post says Barack Obama has lowest spending record of any recent president. EDITOR'S NOTE: This item prompted a large volume and feedback and comments. We published an article about the comments on May 25 and an update to this item on May 31.

You'll find the update below, at the end of the fact-check. On May 22, 2012, Rex Nutting, the international commentary editor for the financial website MarketWatch, published a column titled, "Obama spending binge never happened. " Nutting’s column explored data on federal spending patterns during recent presidencies, concluding that -- contrary to the tax-and-spend stereotype of Democrats -- President Barack Obama has actually presided over the smallest increases in federal spending of any recent president. The column went viral. Under the heading, "Romney’s World," the Facebook post quoted a Romney Web page saying, "Since President Obama assumed office three years ago, federal spending has accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history.

" Nutting’s column First, let’s recap what Nutting said in his column: Nobel Prize-Winning Economist: We're Headed for Oligarchy - Rebecca J. Rosen. In a recent interview at the Economic Policy Institute, Nobel Prize-Winning economist and MIT professor Robert Solow riffed on the political effects of increasing inequality and concentration of wealth at the very top. "If that kind of concentration of wealth continues, then we get to be more and more an oligarchical country, a country that's run from the top," he said. Solow's sentiments echo a point he made earlier this week in his review of Thomas Piketty's book in The New Republic.

(Solow, it should be noted, is not the only Nobel Prize-winning economist to use the o-word in discussing Piketty's work.) Having examined and explained the trends Piketty identifies, Solow turns his attention to the possible measures that could be taken to ameliorate the inequality, and rejigger the system to favor merit over inheritance. Piketty, Solow says, favors an annual, global progressive tax on wealth, such that the benefits of a growing economy could be more widely felt. Study: US is an oligarchy, not a democracy.

Image copyright Thinkstock A review of the best commentary on and around the world... Today's must-read The US is dominated by a rich and powerful elite. So concludes a recent study by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page. This is not news, you say. Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.

In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power. The two professors came to this conclusion after reviewing answers to 1,779 survey questions asked between 1981 and 2002 on public policy issues. On the other hand: They conclude: South Korea Argentina Algeria Ukraine. Is America an Oligarchy? From the Dept. of Academics Confirming Something You Already Suspected comes a new study concluding that rich people and organizations representing business interests have a powerful grip on U.S. government policy.

After examining differences in public opinion across income groups on a wide variety of issues, the political scientists Martin Gilens, of Princeton, and Benjamin Page, of Northwestern, found that the preferences of rich people had a much bigger impact on subsequent policy decisions than the views of middle-income and poor Americans. Indeed, the opinions of lower-income groups, and the interest groups that represent them, appear to have little or no independent impact on policy. “Our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts,” Gilens and Page write: That’s a big claim. The evidence that Gilens and Page present needs careful intepretation. Me, too. Photograph: Ryan Heffernan. Here's how we fix corruption in America | End corruption. Defend the Republic.
