    Democratic Minnesota Representative and Democratic National Committee chairman candidate Keith Ellison once called for slavery reparations and a separate country for black Americans in a university newspaper column. Ellison’s writings while a student at the University of Minnesota law school– under the name “Keith Hakim”– raised eyebrows when he announced his first congressional run in 2006. The Weekly Standard noted that “Ellison refers to ‘Minister Louis Farrakhan,’ defends Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and speaks in the voice of a Nation of Islam advocate… ‘Hakim’ demands reparations for slavery and throws in a demand for an optional separate...

    WASHINGTON — America’s intelligence chiefs sat down with members of Congress behind closed doors on Friday for what they thought would be a straightforward briefing on Russian cyberattacks. What ensued instead was a confrontation Democrats have long sought with James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why, the House Democrats demanded to know, did Mr. Comey believe it was O.K. to make repeated disclosures during the campaign about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails but to this day refuse to say if the F.B.I. is investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia? His answers did...

There is no question that this entire story is being ginned up by democrats solely for political purposes. What did we get out of this report?

Reince Priebus, the former Republican National Committee chairman, said Trump understands that Moscow was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations. “He accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia so that’s not the issue,” Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.” Priebus’ comments marked a major shift.

    I can’t tell yet if this is a new spin strategy carefully scripted by Team Trump or if Reince is about to get an angry phone call from his boss. Trump’s argument, after all, has been that there’s no way to tell who’s behind a hack. “Entities in Russia” puts the culprits a lot closer to Moscow than the proverbial “somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, okay?”The phrasing is noteworthy. Reince does answer “Russia” at one point when Wallace badgers him to name who Trump thinks is behind the hackings, but during the rest of the...

    The Narrative The Russians have been accused of meddling in the American election for the purpose of defeating Hillary Clinton. The left claim this brings into question the validity of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory. The polls and general consensus of polling and biased press reporting had assured the American public that Mrs. Clinton would win easily. All of the major news outlets projected a Clinton landslide. The fact that it didn’t happen could only be attributed to Russian intervention! Despite the lack of evidence of election tampering by the Russians, the left is using the alleged hacking of the Democratic...

    The Democrat-Media Complex has gone all in on the propaganda campaign to convince Americans that Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate because “Russia hacked the election.” Even if a majority of voters reject the unconvincing case being made, Team Hillary and Team Obama both know that they must keep their own supporters engaged in outrage against the victorious party. Because they believe they are the only legitimate custodians of power in America, any Republican who wins must have gained victory through illegitimate means. But they may have made a fatal overstep with the release of the top-secret report on Russian influence...

He also shrugged off the question of whether the politically damaging emails affected the outcome of the race. The publisher of classified and private information released embarrassing emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    The FBI has fired back at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over claims the bureau never asked to access servers that were reportedly breached by Russian hackers. In a statement, the FBI said the real problem was DNC foot-dragging: The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated. This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information. These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier. Earlier, DNC...

    Blinded by their desire to defeat George W. Bush’s re-election bid in 2004, Democrats allowed leftist billionaire George Soros to buy out their party, an analyst said. Defeating Bush “is the central focus of my life,” Soros declared at the time. It was “a matter of life and death.” Soros pumped $15 million into Democratic coffers in 2004. In 2016, he contributed $25 million to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory. Soros lost both elections, and killed the Democratic Party in the process, Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, wrote for FrontPage Mag on Dec. 28. Soros...

    "The fact is that everyone wants to make Donald Trump admit to certain things. When are we going to start talking about the other side of this, which is: What did Hillary Clinton do to influence the election? Is she going to be punished in any way? What are we doing to make sure people are not getting the debate questions ahead of time?" Spicer said during a contentious interview on ABC.
  • Van Jones Says Muslim Keith Ellison Is Future of the Democratic Party

    On CNN, liberal activist Anthony Kapel "Van" Jones said that "the Clinton days are over" in the Democratic Party, and pointed to two emerging leaders as the future of a more progressive political party focused on identity politics. Naturally, he chose two racial minority members of Congress — and the extremely controversial first Muslim congressman. "You have to understand, I think that the Clinton days are over," Jones told CNN's Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "This idea that we're going to be this moderate party ... those days are over." Jones called for a new...

    I’ll confess to having missed most of the Sunday morning shows yesterday, what with New Years activities and fighting a rather nasty chest cold, but the media beast never truly sleeps. One interview on ABC News, however, featured something which seems to be a recurring theme in political news coverage this winter. Jonathan Karl sat down for an interview with Newt Gingrich and DNC interim chair Donna Brazile, where they discussed how Donald Trump won the election. Brazile raised a few eyebrows when she gave a nod to reality and said that Trump’s consistent message and steady presence in battleground...

    While Alan Dershowitz is a staunch liberal, he’s threatening to leave the Democratic Party should Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) become the next chairman for the national committee. Dershowitz, a renowned attorney and Israel supporter, said he would resign due to Ellison’s positions on the Israeli-Palestinian issue and his association with Louis Farrakhan (via Washington Examiner): Speaking on Fox Business, Dershowitz said there is a divide in the Democratic Party over Jewish issues, particularly the support of Israel, or lack thereof, offered by the Obama administration. Dershowitz said Ellison's past praise of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is enough to...

    On Thursday, as part of the White House response to alleged Russian hacking, the FBI and DHS released a Joint Analysis Report (JAR) called “Grizzly Steppe.” While this report was meant to prove, or at least provide evidence, that the Russian government was involved in hacks of the Democratic Party, experts have stated that it “adds nothing.” Jeffrey Carr, a cybersecurity consultant, author, and founder of the Suits and Spooks conference, wrote in an analysis that the report merely lists every threat group ever reported on by a commercial cybersecurity company suspected of having ties to Russia, labeling them “Russian...
