    On the 40th anniversary of the publication of The Shining, Stephen King must be wondering if Washington is working on its own sequel. For the last couple months, Washington has been on edge, like we are all trapped in Overlook Hotel with every day bringing a new “jump scare,” often preceded by a telltale tweet. Indeed, a Twitter whistle has replaced suspenseful music to put the entire city on the edge of their seats. In this Shining sequel, however, people are sharply divided on who is the deranged ax-wielding villain in this lodge, the president or the press. Ironically, with...

    The House Intelligence Committee is expecting a potential “smoking gun” showing the Obama administration spied on the transition team of President Donald Trump and possibly Trump himself, Fox News reported. The report comes two days after committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed that he obtained information that surveillance was being used on Trump’s team. Fox reported that multiple Capitol Hill sources delivered that information to him. The sources told Fox’s James Rosen, who himself was monitored by the Obama Department of Justice in 2013, that the information leaves no doubt the Obama administration was spying on Trump during legitimate surveillance on...

    Yesterday we did a story about the Torrance area political hack, Congressman Ted Lieu—he wanted you NOT to watch Fake news—so he recommended you watch MSNBC—the funniest news operation this side of Saturday Night Live news at midnight.  Now we find Congressman Adam Schiff, of the Burbank area, who has sold out Israel, the United States, the Constitution and freedom. Iran wants to bomb Israel out of existence—and Schiff wants to give them NUCLEAR weapons, to do the job.

    The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that there is now “more than circumstantial evidence” that Trump’s associates colluded with the Russians to interfere in the U.S. election. In an interview on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily,” host Chuck Todd asked if Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, currently has a circumstantial case. “Actually, no, Chuck. I can tell you that the case is more than that. And I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now,” Schiff said. Asked if he’s seen direct evidence of collusion, Schiff said, “I don’t to want go...

    Domestic Spying: Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, says that the Obama administration surveilled Donald Trump's transition aides and possibly Trump himself following November's election. If true, it warrants a major investigation. "I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions the intelligence community ... collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition," Nunes told reporters. Nunes immediately came under intense criticism from congressional Democrats for his revelations. What's both hilarious and sad is that these are the very same Democrats who have been nearly silent as a series of illegal leaks from the intelligence bureaucracy have...

    That's 'not' a normal procedure. Such person(s) incidentally being picked up under legal surveillance of foreign entities or other investigations are basically 'thrown away' not unmasked and transcripts being saved of it and spread about the intelligence community. That's apparently what happened to Trump campaign/transition people. The media obviously doesn't want to ask those questions and instead want to focused on the fact that it was 'legal' incidental communications being picked up. So what that it was 'legal' and I have my doubts about that but even if it was appropriately legal, why was such information spread about? Sounds more...

    The mighty CIA has fallen victim to a major breach, with WikiLeaks revealing the true scope of the Agency’s ability for cyber-espionage. Its tools seem to be aimed at ordinary citizens – your phone, your car, your TV, even your fridge can become an instrument of surveillance in the hands of the CIA. How does the CIA use these tools, and why do they need them in the first place? And as WikiLeaks promises even more revelations, how is all of this going to shape the already tense relationship between new president and the intelligence community? A man who has...

    Under authority granted the agency by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016, the EPA just issued a $100 million grant to the beleaguered city of Flint, Michigan, to help in the effort at replacing the city’s badly corroded and lead-tainted system of water pipes. Some progressive critics of President Donald Trump have pointed to his proposed budget cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency as proof that he is a terrible president who doesn’t care about ensuring that Americans have clean air and water. However, the recent report from The Daily Caller about Trump’s EPA grant just...

    The EU and US urge "strongman" Khalifa Haftar to return oil ports to the "Libyan people". We're glad that Washington has a sense of humor ___ Libya was the richest, most developed, most educated country in North Africa. It was a model of much-needed stability in the region, with a government that was considerably less terrible than NATO's numerous medieval dictator-allies. Before the "revolution", the Libyan government used oil revenues to subsidize a whole range of social benefits for its citizens. And now that Libya is a moon crater, the U.S. and its European poodles are whining about "returning oil...
  • Obama tried to legalize migrant accused of murdering 15-year-old step-daughter he impregnated

    The Obama administration last year began the process of granting legal status to a 36-year-old illegal immigrant with a long criminal rap sheet whom agents had twice tried to deport and who now stands accused of killing his 15-year-old girlfriend, mother of one child with him, and pregnant with another. The Texas case, involving Armando Garcia-Ramirez, a Mexican, is raising new questions about immigration enforcement under President Obama, as supporters of President Trump point to the matter as proof of a broken-immigration system. Mr. Garcia may even have been the girl’s stepfather at the time he impregnated her — something...

    Fox News has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano off the air over a claim he made that British intelligence wiretapped the Trump Tower during the 2016 election at the behest of former President Barack Obama. Fox has not yet issued a public statement on his status as of Monday. The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times reported that Fox sources told them that Napolitano, a judge, would not appear on the air anytime in the near future. He did not appear on Fox News on Monday...

    The mainstream media have been doing a victory lap since the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA) confirmed on Monday in testimony before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee that President Barack Obama did not wiretap Trump Tower. But that was already known. There was only one new revelation at the hearing, and it was a bombshell: senior Obama administration officials could have known the identities of surveillance targets. One of those targets, retired General Michael Flynn, lost his job after it was revealed that his conversation with the Russian ambassador had been monitored, and that...

    Documents obtained by a government watchdog show that the originator of the “After School Satan Club” received speedy tax-exempt status while conservative groups were stuck in bureaucratic red tape under the Obama administration. Treasury Department files obtained by Judicial Watch last week show Reason Alliance in Somerville, Mass., was given nonprofit status within 10 days of its application in October 2014. The group operates the Satanic Temple out of Washington state and planned an “After School Satan Club” initiative in 2016. “While the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) makes conservative groups wait years for tax-exempt status an ‘After School Satan Club‘...
