    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    So, what actually happened last night? – Not much, other than open sedition and disgrace from the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of disinformation. When news broke that Iran was lobbing missiles from its soil at a pair of Iraqi military bases where U.S. and coalition forces were stationed, Democrats and media figures immediately started their own cheering section for the Iranian Mullahs on Twitter. MSNBC’s Larry O’Donnell kicked things off with this little gem, openly urging the Mullahs to take revenge on the bad Orange Man in the White House: Lawrence O'Donnell ✔ @Lawrence Trump wagged the dog. Now the dog...

    Former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis predicted the Justice Department inspector general's report on alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses will be "hard-hitting," with multiple recommendations for prosecution. During an interview Monday on Fox News, Lewis said he used to work with Inspector General Michael Horowitz at the Justice Department and called him as "tough as a nail." Lewis added, "Hes tough, he is smart, and I think the report will be a blockbuster." He expects Horowitz's findings to make special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election "look like a sixth grade book report." Asked to...

    (CNN)Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossell is expected to resign Wednesday after more than a week of protests that rocked the island's capital city, a source familiar with the situation told CNN. Thousands have jammed the streets of San Juan calling for the governor's resignation after Puerto Rico's Center for Investigative Journalism published a series of group messages between the governor and his inner circle that included homophobic and misogynistic language and jokes about Hurricane Maria victims. Demonstrators were determined to stay on the streets until Rossell stepped down, fed up with years of government corruption, high poverty rates, crushing debt...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) may have the support of progressive politicians for their Green New Deal but theyve lost the nations largest organized-labor group, the AFL-CIO. We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy, the AFL-CIOs energy committee wrote in a letter to Markey and Ocasio-Cortez. We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families....

    Washington, Dec 29- The practical conclusion of the negotiations for the purchase of the Danish West Indies is virtually confirmed at the State Department in an announcement that an appropriation by Congress is all that remains to provide for the acquisition of St. Thomas and the other small islands owned by Denmark immediately to the eastward of Porto Rico, and it is the impression of officials that the money will be voted next month. The greatest difficulty in the negotiations has been the reluctance of Denmark to agree in advance to a sale while the United States was not prepared...
