The other ironic thing is the Multi Cult Post-Modern Virtue Signalers who dominate the Dem's thinking are the same ones who made "All Truth is Relative" a main point of their philosophy.

Except when they disagree with it or the effects of it then they are absolutists!

Remember, the first step of recovery is admitting you have a problem. They aren't there yet.

I think they do it intentionally

If you cannot defend your own fake news. attack the other party of spreading the fake news.

and therein lies the issue- partisanship has replaced journalism
the WAPO and NYTimes are shills for the left as much as the Daily Caller and Breitbart are for the right

and that's something TimmyBoy will never admit..

So sad... he must drink a whole ton of the kool-aid.

Nor will the WAPo or NYTIMES or CNN- they continue to pretend they are objective

The NYTimes mentioned last year it was their duty to stop trump and The CNN reporter acted like a protestor not a reporter at trump's press conference

Seems the WAPO would just like to forget all about fake news!

As for the reason I look at various sources such as Infowars, Breitbart and the like I do a quick headline scan every day to get prepared for what's coming on the forum or to catch up on what I probably missed if I'm pressed for time and not able to get here to see it with my own eyes.

I have a short list of left and right wing sites to scan every day but lately it's the right wing sites that keep showing up in the posts/comments.

That's all...

Have a nice afternoon - I gotta take the pup to the groomer..later

Seems like the WAPO would like to forget all about fake news

Actually it's pretty clever on his part as well since if things don't go according to plan, Trumpligula can claim he wasn't correctly quoted etc. over and over and over louder and louder until it's believable and further discredit WaPo more than they have done to themselves.

The WAPO, NY TIMES CNN FB opened this can of worms- if they had just stuck to reporting the news they could have held readership and the journalistic higher ground. the contrast would have been clear.
Instead they went on an offensive, and it blew up on them because they publish a fair amount of fake news themselves

First mistake with WaPo is selling to bezos, who has ax to grind with trump.

They had to sell to someone with deep pockets who would support continued losses other wise they would have gone out of business with their current propaganda approach

The rosy scenario of economic wonders from a Trump administration that predominated after his election. Now as his inauguration approaches the uncertainty is weighing on the markets.

It's not so much fake as in false, but selective and partisan.

Some of it is partisan and some of it IS FALSE.

Stories like this are FALSE http://fakenews.news/2017/02/03/ap-reports-fake-news-trumps-intention-invade-mexico/

I keep hearing that Donald Trump called the media the enemy of the people. This is also FALSE when he said FAKE NEWS MEDIA was the enemy of the people, not the media.

She raised rates because the economy was accelerating.

Not sure that is the case-
Helen Hayes from CNBC asked her why she was raising rates into a tired expansion- she had no good answer

Stock market now has highest P/E ratios - Stock market is not an indicator of the economy, but rather Fed policy.

It's true, the US economy is clearly accelerating.

hi im porter stansbury

You didnt read or listen- there is nothing in the content that has anything to do with a collapse of the economy, the dollar or other wise- it is a discussion of an historic episode around the mid 19th century..

Why do their reported holdings fluctuate so much? This is probably just routine petro-dollar transactions. Will be interesting to watch this trend though

Russia's overall reserves have fluctuated wildly the past few years as they sold their treasuries when sanctions were instituted. Then they ramped up gold purchases. Seems now as they are rebuilding reserves they are replacing some of their treasuries holdings that they sold a few years back

Anyone bought BTC or Ethereum using Coinbase? Do you recommend using ACH or debit/credit card? I know ACH is cheaper.

Coinbase has limits on credit card purchases. The direct draw from the bank account can be done subject to verification of identity.

FedCoin- a crypto currency issued by the Federal Reserve

Seriously? This defeats one of the primary motivations for cryptocurrency: to be out of the control of central banks.

Correct, the fed isnt interested in decentralized private currencies, they want to control the whole thing from end to end!
