Compromised? Wonder if that was the reason all his bluster about Benghazi went nowhere? The unmasking during the 0bama admin probably played a huge part. I guess we will find out shortly.

Has the intelligence committee given heads up to those previously caught up in the spying?

Gowdy has made a lot of noise, but so far has been unable to really penalize the “Swamp” in any meaningful way. Leading to the thought that that Gowdy may in fact be an under the covers “Swamp” dweller himself.

Donald Trump has been spotted playing a second round of golf at Turnberry resort ahead of his trip to meet Vladmir Putin. His Scottish golf club is crawling with secret service as it has been revealed it is costing the British taxpayer £5million to cover security his two-night stay in Ayrshire. Anti-Trump protests flopped yesterday with Police Scotland planning for 100,000 to march on Edinburgh and Glasgow with only 7,000 people turning up. Now questions may be raised about the expense of the security measures outside his Scottish resort after just a dozen demonstrators congregated outside. And it appears officers

The California Democratic Party issued a stunning rebuke of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Saturday by decisively handing its official endorsement to state Sen. Kevin de Leon, her longshot Democratic challenger. The move was the latest sign that establishment Democrats are facing something of a national insurgence, coming on the heels of last month´s shock win by 28-year-old Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over high-ranking Rep. Joe Crowley in a closely watched New York primary. In backing de Leon, a majority of the party´s 360-member executive board ignored Feinstein´s calls to stay neutral in the race.

WASHINGTON – A representative from the NAACP joined other activists to advocate for the abolition of the death penalty, referring to capital punishment as “state-sponsored violence.” “This is a modern-day human rights issue that felt really solvable as a law student, like, we can just get rid of this, right? We don’t need this. Let’s move forward and get rid of this and move on to some other human rights issues – that’s kind of how I found myself representing people who are on death row,” Ngozi Ndulue, senior director of criminal justice programs at the NAACP, said during a vigil

Tech visionary and entrepreneur Elon Musk has been "unmasked" as a secret GOP donor. Musk apparently contributed about $40 thousand to the Protect the House PAC. Predictably, the left has gone ballistic. Musk is Silicon Valley. That makes him one of us. How dare he go off the reservation and contribute to the enemy? NBC: Tesla CEO Elon Musk reportedly donated nearly $40,000 to a Republican political action committee, becoming one of their top 50 donors last quarter, The Hill reported Saturday.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Friday called NBC News’ report that said the Pentagon was in “damage-control” mode to reassure NATO allies after President Trump’s visit “fiction.” Mattis, during a press gaggle on the way to Oslo, Norway, brought up the report, which claimed that “hours” after Trump departed NATO, U.S. military leaders embarked on a “full-scale” damage-control operation across Europe. The report said U.S. military leaders were “directed by the Pentagon leadership” in response to Trump threatening to reassess U.S. commitments in the region. “That was fascinating. I love reading fiction, so it was stimulating to read it,” he

The Thai boys evacuated from the flooded cave have paid their respects to the former Navy Seal diver who died trying to save them. The 12 youngsters and their football coach were not told that Saman Kunan had drowned ahead of their dramatic rescue from the Tham Luang cavern just days ago. His dramatic death convinced the Thai authorities for the need to call back the British cave-diving experts to lead the ´mission impossible´ to save the boys. But now doctors have decided the boys, aged between 11 and 16, are well enough to learned of the former Thai Navy

During Friday’s edition of Andrea Mitchell Reports, the MSNBC host went after the President for praising Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and suggesting he would make a good Prime Minister. Johnson resigned earlier in the week due to his disapproval of May’s “Brexit” strategy. Johnson, unlike May, vocally supported the June 2016 referendum where voters ultimately chose to leave the European Union. Mitchell asked former US Ambassador Nicholas Burns “when have we last seen an American President interfere in a British election or any overseas election of an ally?” Burns replied "We have not seen this kind of wrecking ball tour

If there’s one thing Special Counsel Robert Mueller is exceedingly good at it is indicting Russians over whom he has zero jurisdiction. Mueller had previously indicted 13 Russian individuals and companies, and Friday he added 12 more to the list. It’s a neat little trick – bring charges against people you’ll never get in court, therefore you’ll never have to prove them. This allows Mueller and his team to say they’re “doing something,” that the American people are getting something for the millions his investigation has cost us, while not having to actually prove anything. Maybe there is something to

A Russian tech entrepreneur accused in the infamous Christopher Steele dossier says Friday’s indictment of 12 Kremlin intelligence officers exonerates him. The indictment signed by special counsel Robert Mueller didn’t refer to Aleksej Gubarev or make reference to any of his companies that supply computer servers worldwide. The indictment presents a chronological narration of how Russian GRU intelligence officers set up a global hacking network to penetrate Democratic and Hillary Clinton campaign computers and steal documents and emails. The stolen information, loaded with newsy tidbits on how the then-front runner was campaigning, turned up on phony Russian websites. Eventually, the

What are we to make of the headline-busting "bust" of twelve Russians for hacking Dem Party computers, releasing the supposedly confidential info there, and thus messing around with an American election or three? Notice my question: "What are we to make of" the above. To me, that is the real question – one that in and of itself is its own answer. This act by the Department of Justice has no meaning in a legal sense.

Perino slammed Democrats for an "outrageous" suggestion Strzok deserved a Purple Heart and scolded Republicans for "overboard" questions that "felt like a public lynching" during Strzok´s testimony to the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees. The comments from the former George W. Bush press secretary came after Strzok´s testimony dominated headlines and broadcast news on Thursday.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
