Back in mid-July after the failed putsch against Turkish president turned dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Team RogueMoney and other alt-media gave extensive coverage to what was going on at the Incirlik Air Base, where many of the alleged coup plotters in Turkey's military served alongside U.S. counterparts before being arrested for treason. One of the oddities we noticed at the time was how some military oriented media such as Stars and Stripes were forced into covering the cutoff of electricity to the base, a key installation for the hosting of American B61 tactical nuclear bombs in Europe, due to the legitimate concerns of family and friends about the U.S. servicemen sweating in the summer heat without air conditioning at the facility.
However, to read articles published by Clinton Watts or Andrew Weisburd written for War on the Rocks (WoTR) and The Daily Beast, you'd think any doubts expressed on Facebook or Twitter about the security of Incirlik, its large tactical nuclear arsenal and the American servicemen and women there were all fabricated by sophisticated Russian propaganda trolls. In the aftermath of a Turkish policeman's assassination of a Russian Ambassador raising the question of Islamist if not ISIS infiltration of Turkey's security forces, and the prospect of the next attack (one that won't be sickeningly welcomed by a columnist for the NY Daily News) being against a U.S. diplomat or facility like Incirlik, Watts' and Weisburd's poo-pooing of last July's power cutoff merits another look. So too, does the faux Atlanticist, globalist agenda the two men are pushing -- which comes perilously close to advocating a fulltime, U.S. government run propaganda machine to attack the alt-media in real time for allegedly repeating Russian government-produced agitprop.

Thoughts from V the Guerrilla Economist on the collapse of old media and the rise of alt/new media, including the milestone that 3 million viewing minutes have been spent on RM's YouTube channels in the last 28 days.

"The Professor" Ken Schortgen Jr. @FinanceExaminer talks the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) intervention in the markets on Election Day and what a Trump presidency means for the near economic future, in terms of infrastructure spending, repatriation of dollars held by U.S. corporations overseas, renegotiating globalist trade agreements and tax cuts stimulus.
In a separate segment, Deb @BanksterSlayer Caruthers and @Evo_Consultants talk on November 10th about the global economic paradigm shift. - JWS

As of 12 midnight Eastern Standard Time Wednesday, November 9, 2016 it appears Donald John Trump will be the next President of the United States. The Mexican billionaire oligarch-owned New York Times, which worked so hard to defeat The Donald, now acknowledges he will win the White House with over 300 electoral votes, with Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin capping a stunning run of victories turning the map Republican 'red' from Florida to North Carolina to Pennsylvania (with at least one electoral vote from Maine and New Hampshire close due to the Trumpening of New England).
Needless to say to regular RM readers, the Guerrilla's forecast that Trump would win and win big has been vindicated -- as has the reporting of this RogueMoney contributor that Hillary's Syria warmongering and the Democrat-dominated mainstream media's attempts to 'link' Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin would not appeal to the vast American 'flyover country' and previously silent U.S. majority. The American people have spoken in their tens of millions, and the Beltway foreign policy elites, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) crowd, the #NeverTrump cuckservatives, and the neocons and the regimes they prop up in Kiev and Riyadh stand humiliated before the world.
In response, as with the Brexit, the Guerrilla tweets that stock markets and currencies (particularly the Mexican peso) began to tank as soon as the news spread worldwide. - JWS
The headline screamed, "U.S. Govt Hackers Ready to Hit Back If Russia Tries to Disrupt Election". The premise that the Russians might try to do such a thing despite the risks of severe retaliation in the cyber realm are seemingly accepted without question by NBC News, long identified by Sibel Edmonds and others as a 'sock puppet' for the Pentagon and CIA -- most recently in NBC's false (psyops) reporting that Turkish president turned dictator Recep Tayip Erdogan had fled Turkey and sought political asylum in Germany during the mid-July 2016 coup. But trust NBC News this time, everything they're reporting about cyber weapons ready to go to turn off the lights in Moscow if the Rooskies even think about any funny business surrounding our American elections is on the up and up...
Russophrenia -- the belief that Russia is a weak, hopelessly backward country with an economy in tatters smaller than Italy's, but is simultaneously on the brink of taking over the world (or at least defeating NATO and 'the West'). (The Russia Analyst cannot claim to have invented the word, it comes from RT columnist and Irishman Bryan MacDonald, himself the victim of smears and harassment by the fanatical Russophrenics of the Interpreter Mag who now 'work' for RFE/RL at this and other American taxpayers' expense).
To this definition the Russia Analyst can add an addendum, which is that Russian agents or at least 'useful idiots' are everywhere in the (post)West, especially in the FBI as it drops truth bomb after truth bomb from at least five investigations into the extended Clinton crime family, whose apologists have been accusing Bureau director James Comey and the Republicans of being either in cahoots with the Russians or at least playing into their hands...
