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.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be a ruthless, murderous dictator, he is not mentally insane. "All indications are that he is not crazy," Tillerson told Fox News. "He may be ruthless. He may be a murderer. He may be someone who in many respects we would say by our standards is irrational. But he is not insane." The secretary of state also said Thursday that the U.S. would prefer to resolve the ongoing nuclear proliferation standoff with North Korea through direct talks. Previous administrations generally favored only multilateral talks with North

With Bill O’Reilly now gone from Fox News, is high-powered attorney Lisa Bloom looking to help oust another piece of the network’s primetime lineup? Earlier, we posted about comments made by Jesse Watters about Ivanka Trump on Tuesday night’s edition of The Five.

What Donald Trump´s "joke" about
Nikki Haley reveals about him
CNN, by Chris Cillizza    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 4/26/2017 3:59:01     Post Reply
At a lunch at the White House on Monday with more than a dozen UN ambassadors, President Trump poked some fun at his own UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. [video] "Does everybody like Nikki?" Trump asked the assembled ambassadors as Haley sat by his side. Amid laughter Trump added: "Otherwise, she can easily be replaced." Cue awkward laughter. Now, Trump was joking. And everyone in the room -- including Haley -- understood that. But, that doesn´t mean he was entirely kidding. Two things we know about Trump suggest that beneath his attempt at humor was a hard-edged point. First, we know

Washington - During an appearance on a panel discussion in Germany on Tuesday, Ivanka Trump was booed and hissed at when she offered a defense of her father´s policies regarding paid leave for women in the workplace. "That is something I´m very proud of my father´s advocacy, long before he came into the presidency, he championed this in the primaries," Ivanka Trump said of President Trump. "He´s been a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive." She was interrupted at that point. She went on to add: "I´ve certainly heard the criticism from the media and that´s

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Hungary’s headstrong nationalist prime minister and Hungary’s most famous expatriate liberal billionaire are on a collision course in a battle over the future of a school. Protesters pledged to keep demonstrating against the government even after Prime Minister Viktor Orban pushed through legislation that critics fear could shut down a university founded by American-Hungarian investor and Democratic Party power broker George Soros. Mr. Soros has attracted staunch supporters and bitter critics in the U.S. with his willingness to put his fortune at the service of his liberal principles.

The United States is preparing charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, CNN reported Thursday. U.S. officials familiar with the matter told CNN that prosecutors have found a way to move forward, after struggling to determine whether the First Amended protected Assange from prosecution. The Justice Department´s investigation of WikiLeaks can be traced back to 2010, after thousands of U.S. government files stolen by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning appeared on the website. According to CNN, former President Obama´s Justice Department decided not to pursue charges against Assange because other mainstream publications also decided to publish the documents.

Donald Trump: A Simple Man
American Thinker, by Jeffrey Folks    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 4/20/2017 5:39:59     Post Reply
Liberals believe they are smarter than the rest of us. They believe that ordinary people should have little say in politics, because the so-called intellectuals know better. That is the essential appeal of liberalism to most of its followers. It's nice to believe that you are smarter than everyone else. But it's not true. That complex liberal mind, so intent on demonstrating its own superiority, has not governed well. Based on the record of the past century, since the time of Woodrow Wilson in America and Mussolini in Europe, liberal rule has resulted in nothing but war, recession, and social division.world of joy

You can’t make this stuff up. One sponsor after another abandons Fox’s Bill O’Reilly because of allegations of sexual harassment. Fox then announces it is abandoning its famous star of decades and he is out. For the record? I have not only never been on O’Reilly’s show, I have never met the man. He is not a popular guy with colleagues, according to my sources. But none of that should stop a serious look at the politically correct nature of the double standard that is sexual harassment. Let’s be specific, shall we? Here is this story on Hyundai and Bill

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.

So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact. Today, in eye-popping news, we learn, from the New York Post via

Priestap, the supervisor of the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email activities, stating that the former secretary of state was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts. (Snip) In the filing Priestap declares under penalty of perjury that the FBI “obtained Grand Jury subpoenas related to the Blackberry e-mail accounts, which produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers.” On April 30, 2015, Judicial Watch sued

An estimated 346 employees in the Department of Veterans Affairs do no actual work for taxpayers. Instead, they spend all of their time doing work on behalf of their union while drawing a federal salary, a practice known as "official time." That´s according to a report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. But exactly what those VA workers are doing and why so many are doing it is not clear. The VA doesn´t track that, and the GAO report offers no clue. Rep. Jody Arrington, R-Texas, a member of the House Veterans´ Affairs Committee, thinks the number on 100 percent official
