    According to CBS, conversations between Manafort and Trump may have been scooped up in the surveillance: Long before the special counsel began investigating Russian meddling in the U.S. election — and whether anyone in the Trump campaign was involved — Paul Manafort was the target of an FBI investigation. It included electronic surveillance of the one-time Trump campaign chairman....the surveillance on Manafort occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign. According to a former U.S. official, the intercepts picked up conversations between Manafort and Russian individuals about the campaign. The intercepts potentially include conversations between Manafort and President Trump.... If the Manafort...

    NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kelly’s interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump. To promote the debut of Kelly’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program, NBC News tweeted, “EXCLUSIVE: Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Trump in interview with @megynkelly.” CNBC, NBC’s sister station, did not send out fake news, linking to the same story after tweeting, “Russia’s Putin denies having compromising information on Trump.” Reuters also reported on the interview and tweeted,...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A woman claims the ongoing construction along Interstate 95 in St. Nicholas is ruining her home. Christine Parker, who lives on Southampton Road within walking distance of the project, said heavy pounding, earth moving and other construction that's been going on for four years has caused her floors, walls and ceilings to crack. "My house is falling apart," Parker said. "The construction they've been doing (with) all the heavy pounding has ruined my home." The damage is so severe -- she claims the home built in 1922 has shifted two inches in the last three years --...

  • Claim: Mass Migration Will Not Help Solve Skilled Worker Shortage

    Head of the Federal Agency for Labor, Frank-Jürgen Weise has said that new migrants and asylum seekers have little chance of filling Germany’s skilled worker problem because very few of them meet the needed qualifications. Frank-Jürgen Weise has had a long career in the German government and is now retiring at the age of 65. Mr Weise, who also briefly managed the Federal Agency for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) admits that despite the unemployment rate being lower than when he first took office as head of the Labour agency, migrants will not be able to meet the increasing demand for...

    Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, the terrorist responsible for last Thursday’s massive terror attack in Nice, France, was “one of the soldiers of ISIS”, Islamic State sources claimed on Saturday. The attack, carried out during Bastille Day celebrations in the southern French city, left 84 dead – excluding the terrorist, who was shot dead by police – and more than 200 wounded. A Tunisian-born French citizen, Bouhlel had a history of serious mental and emotional problems and was well-known to local police. Bernard Cazeneuve, France’s Interior Minister, said Bouhlel “appears to have become radicalized very quickly”, noting that he began attending the...
  • Lawyers file claim EPA Michigan water crisis

    Lawyers for residents of Flint, Michigan, have filed a $220.2 million damages claim alleging negligence on the part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency contributed to dangerous lead levels in the city's water supply. In a statement issued on Tuesday, Michael Pitt said his firm Royal Oak, Michigan's Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers, along with others, had filed an administrative complaint on Monday with the EPA alleging injuries to over 500 people. They said they would file a similar complaint next week covering 250 more Flint residents. Federal law requires that such complaints be filed as precursors to actual lawsuits...

    Lawyers for the Obama administration compared Israel’s control of Jerusalem to Russian claims over the Ukrainian territory of Crimea during oral arguments this week before the Supreme Court in a case concerning the rights of U.S. citizens to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on their passports. U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who is rumored to be in the running to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, drew the comparison on Monday while he attempted to convince the Supreme Court that Jerusalem is not officially part of Israel. The controversial case hinges around Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born in Jerusalem...

    In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to...

    AUSTIN, TX, November 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – State Senator Wendy Davis' statement that she is “pro-life,” made just before she officially entered the governor's race this weekend, was designed to “muddy the waters” about her position on abortion and appeal to voters who are far more conservative on the issue than she is, according to some pro-life leaders in the state and around the country. Last Tuesday, the Forth Worth Democrat told an audience at the University of Texas in Brownsville, “I am pro-life.”

    In what is being described as yet another example of Palestinian Authority (PA) denial of the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the very legitimacy of the State of Israel, the Presidential Guard of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has claimed the Western Wall as an Arab and Islamic site. Last week, a picture of the Western Wall was posted onto the PA Presidential Guard's official Facebook page with a PA flag superimposed on it, along with the words "The Al Buraq Wall - Public Relations and Information - The Presidential Guard - Palestinian youth know their rights." The Western Wall...

    Earlier today the Associated Press reported that a Department of Homeland Security official had resigned in the wake of the Obama administration’s decision to release thousands of illegal aliens awaiting the judicial process. The department cited budget cuts as the reason for the releases, despite the fact that the cuts would hit about one percent of DHS’s budget, and they have not even happened yet. The AP’s story turns out to have been premature. No one has been fired or resigned in the wake of the release scandal. The senior Homeland Security Department official in charge of arresting and deporting...

    Yahoo! News ^ | 10/23/12 | FactCheck.org
    In a new TV ad, President Obama makes an inflated claim to have added 5.2 million new jobs. The total added during his time in office is actually about 325,000. In the ad, the president says “over 5 million new jobs” while the figure “5.2 million” appears on screen. But that’s a doubly misleading figure. Viewers would need to pay close attention to the on-screen graphic to know that the ad refers only to employment gains starting in March 2010, omitting the 4.3 million jobs that were lost in the first year of Obama’s term. And there’s no way a...

    ABC in Atlanta reports that an Atlanta government position that Obama bundler Stacii Jae Johnson claims to have held does not actually exist. Johnson listed herself as the commissioner of the mayor’s Office of Film, Television, Music and Digital Media in a presentation last year; according to ABC Atlanta, that position does not exist. Johnson also starred and produced in a instructional strip video entitled “I Want to Strip for My Man but I Don’t Know How,” which the Washington Free Beacon first reported on in May.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney carefully deflected Vice President Joe Biden’s Monday night declaration that the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout was the most audacious military strike in 500 years. “He meant the decision the president made… was a very difficult one,” said Carney, when asked about Biden’s gaffe. “When you’re president, you have to make the tough decisions.” Carney kept a straight face amid laughter from journalists attending the press conference. But Carney stepped back when asked if the bin Laden raid was more audacious that the D-Day landings on the Nazi-held Normandy coast in June 1944....

    Planned Parenthood's "Abortions Are Just 3%" Claim is False As we’re all VERY familiar with by now, Planned Parenthood absolutely insists that abortions only comprise 3% of their “services.” Now, even if this were an accurate representation of the truth, it would be abhorrent. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/01/03/planned-parenthoods-abortions-are-just-3-claim-is-false/

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/7/11 | Gene Healy
    On Friday, citing "longstanding and important Executive Branch confidentiality interests," White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler refused a House panel's demand for "all communications among White House staff and officials" relating to Solyndra. Solyndra is one of the administration's pet "green energy" firms. It received a $535 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy before its top executives took the Fifth before Congress. What's been unearthed so far is embarrassing enough. The Obama administration seems to have rushed the deal through despite multiple warning flags and a lack of due diligence. The now-bankrupt firm, whose largest shareholder is a major...

    The inspector general of the Department of Justice undermined and obstructed a congressional investigation by releasing secret tape recordings that corroborate allegations of misconduct in "Operation Fast and Furious," according to a letter written by Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley. The two lawmakers leading the probe into the Obama administration scandal claim Justice Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar compromised their investigators' ability to get to the truth and potentially prosecute those responsible for selling thousands of weapons to the Mexican drug cartels. Schnedar failed

    The State Department retails the PC myth in this article, "Thomas Jefferson's Iftar," July 29. Nor is this the first time this falsehood has gone around: the State announcement quotes Barack Obama saying last year: “Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan — making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.” Longtime Jihad Watch writer Hugh Fitzgerald busted this myth...

    Both sides in the Egyptian “civil war” claim that their opponents are being aided by Israel and/or Jews. Egyptian State television broadcast a story Wednesday claiming that a suspicious "Israeli engineer" was caught near Suez and questioned in relation to the riots. Meanwhile a young woman was interviewed who claimed that American Jews taught her how to "bring down the government". Many people interviewed on state television have claimed that the entire uprising is being coordinated by Israel in order to "conquer all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates".
