Our best election reporting (Surprise! Surprise! Sergeant) may be from Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, who are London-based, but internationally focused. And not paid-to-play (not by Soros or the Deplorables).
If you wondered how our "enemies" came to be, we've learned (painfully) that both Saudi Arabia and the Clinton Foundation have been funding ISIS. And how about the 95 million USA USA USA citizens who are still looking for a decent job? (In addition to learning about this fact, Stacy tells us how she doubted her own eyes when she saw only Trump signs in NC, but understood after election day.) Gary Johnson, the Libertarian (ex-Republican Governor of NM) candidate, won 3.3 million votes, the most for any 3rd-party candidate since 1996. And, yes, these were NOT votes going to go to Hillary! They hurt Trump. So hush up about the independents being so mean . . . . Trump probably would have won the popular vote without Gary Johnson running, you know.
Jill Stein's voters still did not reach the magic number of 5%, so we will never hear about the Green Party's platform during the debates in 2018 and 2020.
Aren't you thrilled?
Featured are Professor Michael Hudson, Mitch Feierstein, Chris Whalen and Randy Voller - remember him?, who is always quite informative.

We discuss the gruesome Gaddafi like death to a political career. We also look at the role of Obamacare premium increases in middle income voter discontentment with the Democratic Party. In the second half, Max interviews Dr. Michael Hudson about what went wrong for Hillary.
In this special US Election Day episode of the Keiser Report from New York City, Max and Stacy report from outside the Javits Center, where Hillary Clinton took the stage at the event that she and most pollsters and media thought would celebrate her victory. What went wrong? Former North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller tells Keiser Report that Hillary failed to bring in the working class vote. Author and former banker Mitch Feierstein suggests it was her alleged corruption. And credit analyst and Trump supporter Chris Whalen says that, in the end, Hillary just didn’t have the message that resonated with voters and it was Trump who had momentum and message.
Thom Hartmann interviews Katrina vanden Heuvel and Ralph Nader who might surprise you with their intelligent insights on the last few years' content-less TV, radio and newspaper reporting.
Will Hillary Clinton have to seek asylum in Riyadh?
Lots of promises (and debts) are outstanding.
Who will collect?
Peter LaVelle is not a Russian or working for the Russians.
Although many on the Clinton team hope you'll think so.
Watch the "Cross Talk" video below and start applauding for a real convocation of political experts:
And as for the FBI's infamous control of events?
We learn about it from the most insidery of the best sources:
Russell Brand shares his unique standard of reporting excellence and personal outrage:
Finally (although it could have happened much much sooner), John Pilger (our own personal economic hitman) reveals everyone's secret.

And, oh, whatever happened to our dear dear dear "paper of record?"
And a lot less.
I didn’t find the Times’ tweet absurd because I was some ardent Trump supporter (I wasn’t). Rather, I was able to recognize it as absurd because it was absurd. So why was I, a nobody blogger, able to see the ridiculousness of this forecast so clearly when the New York Times couldn’t? Because The New York Times had a predetermined agenda, and this agenda blinded it to reality.
With that out of the way, let’s dig into how things work at The New York Times according to Michael Cieply, and why its election coverage was so, for lack of a better word, deplorable.
Hard to believe the DNC was thwarted.
Now to get to work organizing for the future.
