    HONOLULU — Hawaii is the first state to prepare the public for the possibility of a ballistic missile strike from North Korea. The state's Emergency Management Agency on Friday announced a public education campaign about what to do. Hawaii lawmakers have been urging emergency management officials to update Cold War-era plans for coping with a nuclear attack as North Korea develops nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach the islands.

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis attacked President Trump on Saturday over a false alarm sent by Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency (EMA) that alerted residents to a supposedly incoming ballistic missile. In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Curtis attacked Trump on Twitter, writing "YOU DID THIS!" despite the fact that the EMA, which is run by the state of Hawaii, apologized for the incident Saturday afternoon and Trump was golfing at the time. "This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM....

    One of the most entertaining "excerpts" circulated from Michael Wolff's explosive tell-all was a passage describing President Trump supposedly watching a “gorilla channel” for hours on end. The excerpt, of course, was a parody and wasn't actually from the “Fire and Fury” book. But it managed to fool plenty of Trump critics anyway, with an MSNBC contributor and others initially appearing to treat the passage as legit.

In his role, Chaggaris oversaw coverage of the Trump administration. He joined the company in 1999, the report said....

    The State Department Friday released some work-related emails from Huma Abedin that the feds discovered on a laptop belonging to her perv hubby Anthony Weiner — including at least five that were marked “classified.” State was expected to dump roughly 2,800 emails as a result of a court case won by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. “This is a major victory,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, said in a statement. “After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents.” He said the discovery of...

    Theranos has come a long way from the days when it was a darling in the biotech industry. The Wall Street Journal's sources have claimed that the blood-testing firm has avoided bankruptcy by securing a $100 million loan from Fortress Investment Group. The move should keep Theranos afloat "through 2018," founder Elizabeth Holmes reportedly said in an email. Naturally, though, there are strings attached -- Fortress wants to see a return on its investment. Holmes reportedly said that Theranos has up its patent library as collateral, and that Fortress gets 4 percent equity. The loan is also subject to "certain...

    9) The above text explains why Mueller hired the same-old-same-old Hillary crowd for his supposed "independent" investigation into Trump: The same people had to run both investigations because otherwise the new investigators would discover the shenanigans of the old investigators. Putting Strzok and Page on the team was the FBI's way of protecting itself. 10) Nobody should accord this wretched and corrupted pseudo-investigation the figleaf of respectability. Even in the federal justice system, no successful prosecution by this conflicted team would withstand appeal. As to the ostensible crime they're investigating - "collusion" (which, in fact, is not a crime) with...

    A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year. The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS. Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump...

    Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson and Foer were both featured speakers at an elite Washington, D.C. journalism conference three weeks before the story went up. Foer, who is now an editor at The Atlantic, did not return an email seeking comment about Fusion GPS’ role in his story. The Clinton campaign immediately used Foer’s hit piece, which was reportedly produced by their own opposition research firm, to accuse Trump of being too close with Russia. “This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking Trump’s ties to Russia,” Clinton campaign press secretary Jake Sullivan said at the time, calling it “the...

It was horrible,” the agent said. According to the source, a Secret Service agent...
