The battle to launch a recounts in three states by the Green Party lead by Jill Stein heated up today with a switch of court venues from state to federal court in Pennsylvania. President elect Trump was again sighted on twitter without adult supervision to call Stein a “Fraud.” The real focus of the recount effort may be better placed in Wisconsin.

A very small sector of the media seems concerned about “fake news.” There seems to be little unified definition of it. The center right wing of the Democratic Party has taken up the banner of “fake news” as somehow being responsible for their narrow loss an election with the lowest voter turnout in two decades. A couple of days before Thanksgiving, while most of America was cooking and preparing to shop the Tech Titans of Silicon Valley began to implement their drive for outright censorship with Facebook leading the way.
On Wednesday Jill Stein successfully engaged the Wisconsin board of elections in a recount. The Green Party managed to raise the necessary funds to pay for this effort and have raised a total of $5.2 million so far to include Pennsylvania and Michigan. This is despite attacks from Donald Trump as well as liberal elements of the media.
Fancy Bears, Disgruntled Insiders, Russian Hackers and old fashioned incompetence, who really took down the DNC?
As the leaks from Hillary Clinton's circle mounted, there was a rush to blame the Russians. Putin likes Trump, therefore Russian spies must have carried out the hacks that lead to the DNC leaks, Clinton Email Leaks and the Podesta Files all in the span of a few short months. Those files, released on Wikileaks, follow a lower profile leak that happened withing the Clinton Foundation in 2015 to the mainstream press and that leak was from a suspected insider. It is clear from the Podesta files that Clinton's inner circle had a short list of suspects that were already being watched.
Orange Frankenstein: How Clinton, the DNC and the Media created Trump and promoted bigotry and how that backfired.
Wikileaks continues to be a goldmine. In the Podesta email files there is a strategy document so called the “Pied Piper” memo. Although both Salon and Politico found this memo first, one of the Mockingbird's researchers located it independently and editorial back checking located two tepid mainstream articles. Politico, which is implicated in this scheme, published on it two days before Salon. The memo itself is a huge smoking gun with both barrels pointed directly at the face of the public. The memo is availible for download at the bottom of this article.

Breaking Attack has begun on Dakota Access Pipeline Protestors North Dakota State Police and Hennepin County Sheriffs
It is just after noon in North Dakota on October 27 and the planned attack has begun on the protest encampment against the Dakota Access Pipeline to the Bakken Oil Fields. Police have shutdown most cellular internet access. Multiple sources report that live streaming video was interupted and could no longer be uploaded just as the assault began.
The emails of John Podesta, the Clinton family chief of staff, as released by Wikileaks are a treasure trove worthy of bathing in if an investigative reporter were suddenly transformed into Scrooge McDuck. Kevin Gosztola of Shadowproof pointed out one gem on twitter with a simple “Isn't this illegal?” Gosztola's instincts were in fact correct. What he found is very likely to be illegal.
