“Recount Game Over: Federal Judge **ENDS** Michigan Recount”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 6 minutes ago
*“Recount Game Over:* *Federal Judge **ENDS** Michigan Recount”* by Newsroom “A federal Judge has HALTED the Election Recount taking place in Michigan on behalf of failed Green Party Candidate Jill Stein. The Michigan Election Commission confirmed they received the federal court ruling just moments ago at about 7:30 PM eastern US time. This comes on the heels of another court ruling, by the Michigan State Court of Appeals, which also ordered a HALT to the recount, claiming Stein's effort was unlawful. This makes other ongoing recount efforts pretty-much futile since none of the ongo... more »

Lady Gaga: Prince Charles ‘Is Not Human’

Lady Gaga has told senior staff and associates that Prince Charles is not human but is a “hybrid that shapeshifts between human and reptilian form” and according to sources close to the pop star she has witnessed him shapeshift “before her very eyes”, and in her opinion it was a warning to her to “get back on script” and “start playing by their rules.” Lady Gaga met Prince Charles at the Royal Variety Performance in London on Dec. 7 and was criticized in some quarters of the tabloid press for failing to observe royal etiquette in the presence of the heir to the throne.

Study: 70% Of Olive Oil Is Fake – Stop Buying These Brands

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 1 hour ago
More than two-thirds of common brands of extra-virgin olive oil found in American grocery stores aren’t what they claim to be, according to a University of California at Davis study. Instead, the oils were made from lower quality olives unfit to be labeled “extra virgin.” Worse, some were outright counterfeits, made from soy, hazelnut, and even cheap fish oils mixed with low grade olive-pomace oil and additives to create the look and smell of extra virgin olive oil. Far more valuable than other vegetable oils, olive oil is also more costly and time consuming to produce. People hav... more »

Rothschilds Caught Orchestrating US Election Outcome

The U.S. Presidential election was rigged even before the first ballot was cast. The Rothschilds were up to their old tricks – funding both sides of the war in order to fuel chaos, derive maximum profit, and ensure they retain ultimate influence when the new order emerges. Everybody knows Hillary Clinton was the establishment’s candidate of choice, backed by the Rothschilds and the New World Order. But what is less well known is that Donald Trump is also a Rothschild creation and actor, playing a part in the great sham that is the Illuminati’s fake election, designed to keep contro... more »

*Reuters*: *How Iran closed the Mosul 'horseshoe' and changed Iraq war* In the early days of the assault on Islamic State in Mosul, Iran successfully pressed Iraq to change its battle plan and seal off the city, an intervention which has since shaped the tortuous course of the conflict, sources briefed on the plan say. The original campaign strategy called for Iraqi forces to close in around Mosul in a horseshoe formation, blocking three fronts but leaving open the fourth - to the west of the city leading to Islamic State territory in neighboring Syria.
