Obama Blames Talk Radio and Propaganda For Fake News
President Obama blamed talk radio and other "domestic propagandists" for the rise of "fake news," including fictional news items published by state-sponsored actors.
"If fake news that's being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it's not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect," Obama said. "It doesn't seem that farfetched compared to some of the other stuff folks are hearing from domestic propagandists."
"To the extent that our political dialogue is such that everything is under suspicion, everybody's corrupt and everybody is doing things for partisan reasons and all of our institutions are, you know full of malevolent actors and if that's the story that is being put out there, then when a foreign government introduces that same argument, the facts are made up, voters who have been listening to that stuff for years, who have been getting that stuff every day from talk radio or other venues, they're going to believe it."
To remedy foreign influence in America's elections, Obama called for taking a stricter line with our internal political discourse.
"So, if we — if we want to really reduce foreign influence on our elections, then we better think about how to make sure that our — our political process, our political dialogue is stronger than it's been," he said.

President Obama Mocks Alex Jones For Calling Him A Demon
President Barack Obama has mocked a right-wing conspiracy theorist who accused him of being a 'demon who smells like sulfur and hell'.
The President poked fun at radio host Alex Jones while speaking to a crowd at a rally for Hillary Clinton in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Tuesday.
'I was reading the other day. There's a guy on the radio who - Trump's on his show frequently - apparently said me and Hillary are demons, said we smell like sulfur. Ain't that something?' Obama deadpanned.
He then paused and lifted his arm to his nose and sniffing his wrist, before looking around at the audience and chuckling to himself.
'Now, I mean, come on people!'
The President was responding to the ridiculous claim that Clinton is 'demon-possessed', and the two of them 'smell like evil'.
'Hillary, reportedly, I mean, I was told by people around her that they think she's demon-possessed, okay? I'm just going to go ahead and say it,' Jones said on his radio show.

Important Facts Every American NEEDS To Know Before Tonight's Debate
It is being projected that tonight's debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could potentially break the all-time record of 80 million viewers that watched Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter debate back in 1980.
There will likely be quite a few questions about the economy, and without a doubt this is an area where Trump and Clinton have some very sharp differences. The mainstream media would have us believe that the U.S. economy is in pretty good shape, and if that was true that would seem to favor Clinton.
The following are important facts about the economy that every American NEEDS to know for the Trump-Clinton debate tonight.
When Barack Obama entered the White House, the U.S. government was 10.6 trillion dollars in debt. Today, the U.S. government is 19.5 trillion dollars in debt, and Obama still has several months to go until the end of his second term. That means that an average of more than 1.1 trillion dollars will be added to the national debt during his presidency. We are stealing a tremendous amount of consumption from the future to make the economy look much, much better than it otherwise would be, and we are systematically destroying the future in the process.
As Obama prepares to leave office, the rate at which we are adding to the national debt is actually increasing. During the fiscal year that is just ending, the U.S. government has added another 1.36 trillion dollars to the national debt.
It isn’t just the federal government that is on a massive debt binge. Total U.S. corporate debt has nearly doubled since the end of 2007.
Default rates on U.S. corporate debt are the highest that they have been since the last financial crisis.
Corporate profits have fallen for five quarters in a row, and it is being projected that it will be six in a row once the final numbers for the third quarter come in.

In August, the Cass Freight Index dipped to the lowest level that we have seen for that month since 2010. What this means is that the total amount of stuff being shipped around the country by air, by rail and by truck is really dropping, and this is a clear sign that real economic activity is slowing down in a major way.
The percentage of Americans with a full-time job has been sitting at about 48 percent since 2010. You have to go back to 1983 to find a time when full-time employment in this country was so low.
The labor force participation rate peaked back in 1997 and has been steadily falling ever since.
The “inactivity rate” for men in their prime working years is actually higher today than it was during the last recession.
The United States has lost more than five million manufacturing jobs since the year 2000 even though our population has become much larger over that time frame.
If you can believe it, the total number of government employees now outnumbers the total number of manufacturing employees in the United States by almost 10 million.
