    Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company. Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.” Altman – who is still employed by the tech giant – also called on Google to blacklist “alt-right’ sites on the Google ad network (she falsely included Breitbart News in this category — an assertion refuted by a Harvard...

    If President Trump could hand select his 2020 Democratic opponent, he could do no better than former Obama attorney general Eric Holder, the only cabinet official held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the Fast and Furious gun running scandal. He is the poster child for the deep state corruption that festered under Obama and the politicization of both the DOJ and FBI. The former AG, who is arguably responsible for the negligent homicide of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, murdered by guns Holder and Obama funneled to Mexican drug lords, is in fact considering such a bid:...

    Michael Cohen, President Trump’s lawyer, was forced to drop his lawsuit against Fusion GPS over the smears peddled in its Clinton-Steele dossier because of the recent raids by the FBI. Aside from Trump, Cohen was one of the few people with the standing to sue Fusion GPS and discovery might have pulled back even more of the curtain on the process by which Clinton opposition research was used to justify eavesdropping on Trump officials while manufacturing the Russia conspiracy theory. Going after Cohen not only seizes control of materials normally protected by attorney-client confidentiality (at least until Hillary Clinton’s disgraced...
  • 'Relentlessly Negative': Hillary Blasts 2016 Media Coverage for 'Opening Door to Charlatans'

    Hillary Clinton took some more jabs at the media on Sunday, blaming negative coverage for playing a role in her loss in 2016. Clinton made her comments at the Pen America World Voices Festival and said that during her campaign, "the mainstream political coverage was influenced by the right-wing media ecosystem." She pointed to a "false equivalency" in the media's coverage, originally noted by Harvard University professor Thomas Patterson. Clinton also said that negative news imparted by election coverage "has had a leveling effect that opens the doors to charlatans."(snip) Clinton also said that media coverage has been more "straightforward"...

    Some pictures don’t speak a thousand words. They yammer them at us. “A picture, so the age old saying goes, “ is worth a thousand words”. The picture taken when last respects were being paid to gracious former First Lady Barbara Bush: hypocritical, a portrait of lies, an insult to the intelligence of the public at large, and worthy of a thousand more not-so-nice words. But the word that best describes this picture is “POLITICAL”.

    Now solidly into the second year of Donald Trump’s presidency, we can look back at Barack Obama’s legacy with some context. Many aspects of Obama’s eight years in office will go down in history as a success, but not all of them. Let’s take a look at the worst mistakes he made and one force that may have rested even outside his control. 1. Confidence in the economy recovered post-Obama. 2. Obama oversaw a period of struggling labor. 3. The stock market struggled during Obama’s tenure. 4. The 44th president heightened tensions in the Middle East. 5. Obama let the...

    At the very end of his presidency, Barack Obama instructed the nation to pay no attention to allegations of vote fraud, that such allegations were "fake news." "This whole notion of voting fraud – this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is fake news," Obama said emphatically. "The notion that there are a whole bunch of people out there who are going out there and are not eligible to vote and want to vote. We have the opposite problem. We have a whole bunch of people who are eligible to vote who don't vote, and so the idea...

    ames Comey isn’t the only one who took issue with Obama White House statements downplaying the Hillary Clinton email probe in 2016. A new email obtained by Fox News shows that even anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok was concerned about their comments at the time. Offering a glimpse into his actions while leading the Clinton investigation, the Strzok email shows the agent seemingly agitated over statements made by then-White House press secretary Josh Earnest claiming Clinton was not a target of the FBI probe. "Below not helpful," Strzok wrote to top FBI counterintelligence official Bill Priestap and colleague Robert Jones...

    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,...

    U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz believes that the way James Comey handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was a factor in Donald Trump winning the presidency. “Doing what he did 11 days before the election was inappropriate and definitely violative of longstanding FBI practice,” Wasserman Schultz said, adding that she couldn’t predict the extent of the impact or whether it cost Clinton the election. But, she said, it had a negative impact. “I don’t see how it couldn’t have. I don’t see how that announcement, him coming out again and saying what he said that close to the election,...

    When it comes to James B. Comey’s book-tour crusade against President Trump, the question for hard-core Hillary Clinton fans boils down to this: Curse Mr. Comey, or cheer him? Curse him, mostly. They may be card-carrying members of “the Resistance,” who oppose everything that the president stands for, but Mrs. Clinton’s former aides and advisers are still too angry at Mr. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, to see past what they view as his egregious actions that handed the White House to Mr. Trump. In interviews, Twitter posts, television appearances and private grumblings, Team Hillary is using Mr. Comey’s tell-all...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) - Thousands of pages of internal FBI documents related to bureau's decisions emanating from the 2016 election were delivered to congressional investigators Monday, officials said -- the latest document handover in a six-month-old probe that has proved frustrating for Republicans up to President Donald Trump. The delivery comes amid a chorus of complaints that the Justice Department and FBI are working too slowly to produce the documents for the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. The Justice Department this weekend also announced the designation of a sitting US attorney to oversee the process.

    MADISON, Wisconsin, April 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Federal Elections Commission fined Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin for failing to report $116,898 in contributions to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold. According to FEC documents, the abortion affiliate’s political arm reported $133,305.04 in expenditures on its October 2016 quarterly report, but that sum included two payments of $58,449.04 apiece, dated August 31, 2016, but not submitted in any previous reports. One was a donation to Clinton, who lost to President Donald Trump, and the other a donation to Feingold, a former Wisconsin senator who unsuccessfully...

    Way back during the presidential campaign, celebrities showed their support for Democrat Hillary Clinton with all kinds of sartorial salutes. Remember Lena Dunham’s bonkers campaign-trail lewks? The “Nasty Woman” T-shirt that Katy Perry loved? It seems that Hillary-Clinton-as-fashion-muse isn’t necessarily soooo 2016. Witness “The Flower’s” Zoey Deutch, who appeared at a Wednesday night awards ceremony in Washington hosted by the Clinton-founded women’s nonprofit Vital Voices. Deutch, wearing a floral pantsuit, accessorized her outfit with an unusual touch: a manicure that featured a white background with what looked like navy blue lettering spelling out “HRC,” Clinton’s initials, on the thumb.

We caught up with her in between stops, where the actor and underdog candidate talked about how the loss of Hillary Clinton for President in 2016 helped inspire her to run for governor and why she thinks Andrew Cuomo is not doing enough to help the state. Nixon says in addition to running in the Democratic Party primary she’s also actively seeking the nomination of the Working Families Party, a group that gave Cuomo the nomination four...

    Hillary Clinton's former communications director Jennifer Palmieri on Monday cited sexism as a key factor in why the 2016 Democratic nominee for president lost the election. "Fundamentally, I think there's just something they find suspicious in a woman looking to succeed," Palmieri told NBC host Megyn Kelly in a conversation about Clinton's loss. "I think that a man would have survived that [email scandal] and I think that there was going to be something in the campaign that ended, the emails, if it weren't the emails, it would have been something else," Palmieri explained. "She's always been stepping a little...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign will pay $14,500 as part of an agreement with the Federal Election Commission over allegations that the campaign wrongfully accepted in-kind donations from an Australian political party. The complaint centered on a group of seven Australians who volunteered for the Vermont independent’s 2016 presidential bid. The Australian Labor Party paid a total of $24,422 for the volunteers’ flights and stipends, according to the FEC document, provided by the Sanders campaign. The Sanders campaign did not believe at the time that the money the individuals received from the Australian party would disqualify them from volunteering, according...
