  • Dem rep slams Facebook: It 'cannot be trusted to regulate itself'

    Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline (D) sharply criticized tech giant Facebook on Twitter on Wednesday evening, arguing that the social media company can't be trusted any longer to regulate itself. In a series of tweets, the lawmaker ripped into Facebook executives over a New York Times report detailing how the company used a Republican opposition research firm to link public detractors of the company to billionaire Democratic donor George Soros amid criticism of Facebook for its use by Russian operatives to influence Americans during the 2016 election. The report was based mainly on anonymous, insider accounts. "We’ve known for some...
  • Obama Had a Secret Plan in Case Trump Rejected 2016 Election Results

    Obama Had a Secret Plan in Case Trump Rejected 2016 Election Results By Mattathias Schwartz In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate. They had cause to be worried. At that time, Trump had openly speculated that the election might be “rigged.” During his final debate with Clinton on October 19, he said that his opponent “should never have been allowed to run” and declined to answer the question of whether he would concede. “I’ll keep...

    MSNBC Host Katy Tur got a little testy with conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who dared to bring up that the Left has become unspooled since Donald Trump's upset win over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Over the past few days, 13 devices that look like bombs have been mailed to prominent Democrats, including former presidents, and celebrities. We just had an arrest in Florida, but we don't know what their political leanings are, if any, or a motive. We don’t know. Yet, the liberal news media know exactly who it is: Donald Trump…and his supporters. We’re to blame for the Left becoming...
  • Trump loyalist Roger Stone claims he was POISONED with polonium (Truncated)

    Roger Stone has sensationally claimed he was poisoned by political enemies who wanted to kill him before he could 'debunk' their 'lie' that he knew Russians would hack the US election. The longtime Trump supporter claimed to have been told by doctors that a mysterious and debilitating virus he was suddenly struck with in December was in fact polonium poisoning. At the time, Stone had just been accused by the Obama administration of having prior knowledge Vladimir Putin was planning to meddle in the election. He says the poisoning was an attempt to stop him from testifying at a Congressional...
  • John Huber's FBI-Justice Department probe shrouded in mystery

    Roughly one year after U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed to investigate whether accusations that the FBI and Justice Department abused their powers during the 2016 election season merit prosecution, his work remains shrouded in mystery. Likely witnesses tell The Washington Times that they haven’t heard from him, though they are eager to tell what they know. Nor has Mr. Huber kept congressional overseers in the loop on his activities. “I would just like to know what he’s doing,” Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, told The Times. “I’ll take anything. All I know is that we haven’t heard a single...
  • Heads turn over Hillary’s reaction when she’s introduced as ‘the real president’ by fans

    Consider how she behaved during a book signing Friday in Park Avenue, Manhattan, for “This Stops Now,” a book by Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr. Clinton wrote the forward for it. As the event moderator introduced her, an audience member yelled, “The real president!” . . She nodded her head in profuse agreement. While it’s easy to claim “she was just nodding along for the fun of it,” her past behavior suggests she’s obsessed with becoming president. Not only that, but she genuinely believes she should be president right now.

    Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock responses we can often expect from certain figures to stories of sexual harassment and abuse. At a rally in Pennsylvania last week, for example, President Trump once again mocked the movement, claiming he "wasn't allowed" to use certain expressions anymore, and laughing when a member of the crowd urged him to "do it anyway." It is galling in another way, however, to hear #MeToo undermined from an unexpected quarter -- as it was a few days ago by Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton....

    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

    Someone really likes reporter John Solomon of The Hill. While many in the media are chasing stories based on false narratives, trying to nail down a smoking gun for the supposed Trump—Russia election collusion they so desperately believe in, Solomon is over there in a corner breaking news that contains actual evidence. When somebody high up in either the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) is ready to bring out more evidence exposing the #SpyGate plot, Solomon is the reporter who is being brought in and shown the evidence so he can break the news. The only problem...

    Lawyers for Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, told the head of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday that his client will “invoke his constitutional rights not to testify,” defying a GOP-issued subpoena seeking to compel him to give a closed-door deposition. The lawyers told Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in an electronic letter that Simpson will not participate in the committee’s inquiry because it “is not designed to discover the truth.” “Consistent with the September 27, 2018 letter we sent to you, Mr. Simpson, whose testimony is a matter of public record, will not be participating in a...

Yesterday we reported that Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) , Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the latest developments in the House investigation of Deep State spying on the Trump campaign and administration. The liberal media has completely ignored the shocking revelation that the Obama administration and top officials at the DOJ were spying on Donald Trump during the campaign and after he was sworn...

    Republicans lost the argument, but they ultimately had the votes.Forty-nine Senate Republicans and one Democrat just confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the United State Supreme Court. No allegations, no protesters, no public opinion poll showing Brett Kavanaugh is the most unpopular person to be elevated to the nation’s highest court in recent history was going to stop them. To the senators who confirmed him, it did not matter that Christine Blasey Ford testified for four hours under oath and told the Senate Judiciary Committee that she was “100 percent” certain Brett Kavanaugh was the boy who pulled her into a room...

    James Baker revelations further expose FBI, Democrats as real colluders. A top Democratic National Committee lawyer was feeding former FBI General Counsel James Baker information in 2016. The news is more than just another nail in the coffin of the flailing Trump-Russia probe, it is fresh confirmation of a shocking and unprecedented joint effort by the DNC and hostile Deep State forces to use federal power to subvert the will of the people. Baker, who had close ties to former FBI director James Comey, was provided information on alleged “Russian hacking” by flagrantly partisan DNC lawyer Michael Sussmann, Fox News...

    Is Donald Trump as dangerous as Darth Vader? Well, the Dark Lord of the Sith and his evil colleagues blew up Alderaan, Princess Leia's home planet. And "Star Wars" creator George Lucas, it seems, believes Trump could blow up Earth. That's why Lucas "proposed the idea" for a political ad that is now running in the key battleground state of Ohio, former Democratic Sen. Bill Bradley told "With All Due Respect" co-host Mark Halperin on Tuesday. The TV spot offers no lightsabers or Death Stars. The "Star Wars" universe, after all, is now owned by Disney. Instead, the inspiration was...

    A leaked email chain has revealed that senior executives at Google attempted to rig the 2016 US presidential election for Hillary Clinton. In the emails, a Google executive describes efforts to pay for free rides for a certain sect of the population to the polls–a get-out-the-vote for Hispanic voters operation–and how these efforts were because she thought it would help Hillary Clinton win the general election in 2016, according to Breitbart.

    If the Russian hacking operation helped Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, as many Democrats believe, then President Barack Obama obviously helped Trump defeat Clinton by allowing the Russians to hack the Democrats' emails. Although I doubt that the Russian hacking had any impact on the election, I recognize that if Obama believed the Russians would help Trump win he obviously wanted Trump to defeat Clinton. Why would Obama want fellow Democrat Clinton to lose to a Republican? I don't have any inside information, but there is a persistent rumor that Obama has been plotting to return to the White House....

    Someone leaked to Breitbart an hour-long video of an “all hands” Google meeting that was held just after the 2016 election. The video features Google’s co-founder, Sergei Brin, its CEO, Sundar Pichai, and numerous other high-ranking “Googlers” speaking in turn about the election’s tragic outcome. It is stunning. All of the speakers express grief over Donald Trump’s election. All of the speakers assume that every Google employee is a Democrat and is stunned and horrified that Hillary Clinton–the worst and most corrupt presidential candidate in modern history–lost. There is much discussion about what Google can do to reverse the benighted...

    A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe. The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 election (these weekly meetings are known inside the company as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meetings). Sent to Breitbart News by an anonymous source, it features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO...
