Trump Administration Sends Strong
Signal to Russia By Indicting Hackers

Daily Signal, by Garrison Rutledge and David Inserra

Of all the security threats facing the U.S. today, cyber threats are among the most pernicious. Thankfully, the administration is taking some concrete steps to confront them. Last week, the Justice Department indicted four individuals on charges relating back to the 2016 hack into Yahoo’s network which compromised at least 500 million user accounts. Of those indicted, two are officers of the Russian Federal Security Service, an agency very similar in function to the United States’ FBI. According to remarks made by Acting Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord, the Russian officers “protected, directed, facilitated and paid criminal hackers to collect

How about we have hearings on Russia hacking Hillary´s server instead of the election. One has no evidence the other has a room full of evidence.

Bannon´s departure solidifies
McMaster´s control over the NSC
Politico, by Bryan Bender    Original Article

National security adviser H.R. McMaster quietly slipped out of the White House grounds last week to seek the counsel of one of his aging predecessors, another three-star general who ran the National Security Council in a time of political turmoil and congressional probes. McMaster´s session with 92-year-old Brent Scowcroft, who served as national security adviser for Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, was the clearest indication yet that McMaster, who took the reins of the NSC in February after his predecessor Mike Flynn was ousted, intends to radically depart from the approach taken by Flynn and President

President Donald Trump´s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch was accused of plagiarizing parts of his 2006 book from a 1984 law review article by an Indiana lawyer without citing the source. BuzzFeed and Politico both published articles late Tuesday night, just a few days before Gorsuch is expected to be confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice, highlighting various excerpts that Gorsuch allegedly plagiarized in his book The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia. The articles allege that Gorsuch lifted several passages from Abigail Lawlis Kuzma´s 1984 article in the Indiana Law Journal and used them nearly verbatim in

Chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon was unhappy with the decision to remove him from his role on the National Security Council and threatened to quit, according to a new report. The New York Times reported Wednesday evening that Bannon “resisted the move,” and threatened to resign if the change was made. But the Times said his team has denied that he ever made such a threat. Bannon, who led Trump’s campaign in its final months, was elevated in January to a position on the NSC principals committee, drawing widespread criticism that Trump was trying to politicize the council.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said Wednesday that accusations of criminal offenses are not constructive to the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into Russia’s meddling in the United States presidential election. “Doing television interviews and accusing one another of things is not constructive towards finding the truth,” Gowdy, a member of the committee, told MSNBC’s “On the Record with Greta.” Gowdy’s comments come hours after President Trump in an interview with the New York Times said he thinks former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, committed a crime by requesting that the identities of Trump transition team members be unmasked in intelligence

Two weeks ago, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) left it all on the field in trying to pass his ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill. He talked up the legislation during dozens of TV interviews. The former Ways and Means Committee chairman treated reporters to a half-hour presentation detailing why the current health insurance law was failing. And Ryan hosted countless meetings in his ornate office in the Capitol in a bid to flip members from no to yes. Now, Ryan’s taking a more hands-off approach. The Speaker has taken a backseat to Vice President Pence when it comes to this week’s

Senator John McCain slammed former President Barack Obama in his discussion of the atrocities in Syria this week, telling Fox’s Martha MacCallum that “this is a legacy of Barack Obama.” He brought up the infamous “red line” and said what’s worse than doing nothing is saying you’ll do something and then do nothing. McCain said that he’s optimistic President Trump will take “concrete action” to respond to the chemical attack.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois condemned the United States government’s lack of action in response to the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons. Near the end of the interview, anchor Alisyn Camerota played a clip from 7-year-old Syrian refugee Bana Alabed, who called for an end to the war so, “the children of Syria [can] play and go to school.” “So I’m ashamed of our government’s actions so far, and inaction. I wish I had the ability to move forces to do what needs to be done,” the congressman said in response. Kinzinger added, “we need more people to

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that strikes on Khan Sheikhoun by Syrian government or Russian jets had caused many people to choke. Later, aircraft fired rockets at local clinics treating survivors, medics and activists said. Syria´s army denied the government had used any such weapons. In a statement, President Donald Trump condemned what he called "these heinous actions" by the Bashar al-Assad regime.

WASHINGTON — President Trump warmly welcomed Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to the White House on Monday, heaping praise on the general-turned-president. “We agree on so many things. I just want to let everybody know in case there was any doubt that we are very much behind President el-Sisi," Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with the strongman, who overthrew a democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood-backed government in 2013 in a bloody coup. "He’s done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt," Trump continued. "The United States has,

Before Sebastian Gorka joined President Trump’s administration, the ex-Hungarian pol reportedly endorsed a uniformed militia disbanded for racist views. In 2007, Gorka told a Hungarian TV host that his right-wing party saw a need for the controversial paramilitary group known as Magyar Gárda, according to Fusion. "That is so," Gorka said, when confronted on his support for the radical militia with black vests, caps and arrows associated with the anti-Semitic Arrow Cross Party. The interviewer asked, “So why do you think Fidesz (Hungarian Civic Alliance) would support this type of military organization?” [snip] “Because they must do that,” Gorka replied,

Movie theaters around the world will take part in a protest of President Trump Tuesday by playing the dystopian film “1984” based off of George Orwell’s 1949 book of the same name. “In particular, this undermining of the concept of facts and the demonization of foreign enemies [by the Trump administration] really resonate in ‘1984,’” said Dylan Skolnick, one of the event’s creators. “There’s a central line from the book about the freedom to say that two plus two equals four, even when the government is telling you that two plus two equals five,” Skolnick, co-director of the Cinema Arts

If you’re stressed out about this whole Russian nonsense, relax – Donald Trump didn´t do anything wrong, and he´s not going be impeached, arrested, or ritually disemboweled. When the truth comes out and it explodes in the Democrats’ soft, girlish hands, we’ll all be laughing and toasting their humiliation with Stoli shots. How do I know this with utter certainty? Because it´s all so glaringly obvious, and it’s the only scenario that fits the facts. As Hugh Hewitt says, this scandal has three silos. The first silo is the question of whether the Russians somehow “hacked our election.” The second silo

According to one college professor and journalist, the reaction to Susan Rice’s recently reported “unmasking” of Trump associates is racist. That’s the opinion of Jason Johnson, a professor at Morgan State University and a journalist whose work has appeared on The Root, CNN and MSBNC. In a Tuesday post for The Root entitled, “April Ryan, Maxine Waters and Now Susan Rice: Black Women Are Natural Enemies of Trump Administration,” Johnson writes, “[w]hen you know who your enemy is; when you know you’re just prey pretending to be a predator, you attack without hesitation.” “Which explains why Trump-era Republicans are lashing out at any

An image of Michelle Obama wearing her hair curly while seemingly on vacation has gone viral after the internet praised the former FLOTUS for going natural. Michelle Obama is being hailed as inspirational and a role model after she was spotted wearing her normally straightened locks in a natural style, tucked into a low ponytail. The image surfaced online on Sunday and quickly went viral as Twitter users praised the mother-of-two for embracing her natural hair texture. It isn´t clear where or when the photo was taken.

For months, CNN has been all over stories that attempt to undermine the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency by suggesting ties to Russia. It would be impossible to catalogue the hourly drumbeat of “new” stories on this angle that have gone on for months, despite the lack of named sources or actual evidence. The cable news outlet heavily pushed the infamous “Russian dossier” story that was quickly harmed by BuzzFeed showing how dubious to the point of laughable the dossier was. The network’s obsession extends to running red-washed photoshopped graphics of Trump advisors in front of St. Basil’s. The Russia scare

The conservative commentariat is full of suggestions these days for how Donald Trump can salvage his first 100 days. F. H. Buckley, the organizer of “Scholars and Writers for Trump,” writes in the New York Post that the president should “split” the GOP, align himself with Democrats, and embrace Canadian-style single-payer health care. Ross Douthat of the New York Times says Trump should get a brain trust that can guide him on the right policies, since he seems not to have many of his own. Similarly, my National Review colleague (well, boss) Rich Lowry penned a widely discussed piece for

Fox News star Bill O´Reilly arrogantly assumed sex was on the menu after a hotel dinner with Dr. Wendy Walsh in 2013 — and he turned instantly hostile when it was not, she claimed at a press conference Monday. The psychologist gave a detailed account of the alleged incident to reporters in Los Angeles after it surfaced in the New York Times over the weekend. Walsh´s lawyer Lisa Bloom said it fit a "pattern" of sexual harassment at O´Reilly´s Manhattan-based network and called on the New York State Division of Human Rights and the New York City Human Rights Commission

When Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president, I, like many conservatives, thought he was joking. He certainly was not my first choice and I did not plan to vote for him in the GOP primary. But by the time the primary came to New York, I gladly voted for the man many friends called loathsome. I have to thank my brother, a former marine fighting a losing battle with terminal cancer, and my husband, another former marine, for opening my eyes to the absurd possibility that Trump was what this country needed.

The United Arab Emirates arranged a secret meeting in January between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian close to President Vladi­mir Putin as part of an apparent effort to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and President-elect Donald Trump, according to U.S., European and Arab officials. The meeting took place around Jan. 11 — nine days before Trump’s inauguration — in the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean, officials said. Though the full agenda remains unclear, the UAE agreed to broker the meeting in part to explore whether Russia could be persuaded to curtail its relationship with Iran,

FoxNews.com investigative reporter Malia Zimmerman told host Bill O´Reilly that she and Adam Housely were investigating whether "somebody from the [National Security Agency], for example, would have told [Rice] to ask for those reports, to ask for those names to be unmasked.

A gender educator-turned-blogger is aghast that people would dare ask pregnant women about their baby’s gender. Writing on the progressive parenting website Romper, Reaca Pearl bemoans how even strangers are nosy about her pregnancy. That’s a common enough complaint, but the gender question especially sticks in her craw. She doesn’t just consider it just obnoxious; it’s “actually a hurtful, damaging question,” as well as an “archaic and misogynist” one, she writes. Not only does the question reinforce “arbitrary gender roles,” Pearl says, but it also reinforces the gender binary and confuses gender with sexual anatomy. “In the question, ‘Are you having a boy or
