    Reuters ^ | December 14, 2018 9:57 AM | Alissa de Carbonnel, Gabriela Baczynska
    European Union leaders on Friday backed a plan to tackle fake news on the internet and the bloc’s chief executive rounded on one of the EU chiefs, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, as one of the main culprits in spreading disinformation. The EU plan endorsed by the bloc’s 28 national leaders is largely aimed at guarding against what the United States, NATO and the EU say are Russian attempts to undermine Western democracies. But European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the bloc should also look within its own ranks in its fight against disinformation and he zeroed in on Orbán...

    Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is backtracking after saying that he wasn’t concerned that prosecutors implicated President Donald Trump in a crime. The Republican in a statement said he spoke “imprudently” in a CNN interview Tuesday. During the interview, he dismissed federal prosecutors who said Trump directed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to make hush money payments. Hatch said Democrats will do anything to hurt Trump. …

    NBC "News" ^ | December 13, 2018 | By Dartunorro Clark
    The investigation began in part after federal agents seized materials from the president's former personal attorney Michael Cohen. President Donald Trump's inaugural committee is under criminal investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan for pay to play and misspending some of the $107 million it raised from donations, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. The probe was launched by the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan, the paper said, citing people familiar with the investigation. The investigation, which is reportedly in its early stages, is looking into whether some of the committee's top donors gave money to gain access to the...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) declined the White House chief of staff role on Friday, making him the latest high-profile candidate who's no longer in the running for the influential post. Christie and President Trump reportedly met Thursday evening to discuss the role of replacing John Kelly, who will be departing as chief of staff by the end of the year. “It’s an honor to have the President consider me as he looks to choose a new White House chief-of-staff,” Christie wrote in a statement shared by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times on Friday. “However, I’ve...

    A 7-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock after she was taken into Border Patrol custody last week for crossing from Mexico into the United States illegally with her father and a large group of migrants along a remote span of New Mexico desert, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Thursday. The child’s death is likely to intensify scrutiny of detention conditions at Border Patrol stations and CBP facilities that are increasingly overwhelmed by large numbers of families seeking asylum in the United States. According to CBP records, the girl and her father were taken into custody about...

    John Goodman may love Roseanne Barr, but he doesn't deem her a necessary part of "The Conners." TMZ cameras caught up with the actor, who played Barr's husband on "Roseanne" and now her widower on "The Conners," and he was in great spirits about the Barr-free spinoff. "It's so much fun, man. It's great," he said. "I hope we get a deal for next year. It's wonderful." Goodman, 66, also admitted he hasn't kept in touch with Barr since "Roseanne" was canceled.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded Wednesday after CNN accused President Donald Trump of making up statistics about illegal immigration. Trump claimed during a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this week that terrorists are illegally immigrating to the United States. “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists. We caught 10 terrorists over a short period of time,” Trump said. CNN anchor Jim Sciutto asserted multiple times that Trump was incorrect, writing, “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short...

    WASHINGTON - Despite President Donald Trump's public declaration that he isn't concerned about impeachment, he has told people close to him in recent days that he is alarmed by the prospect, according to multiple sources. Trump's fear about the possibility has escalated as the consequences of federal investigations involving his associates and Democratic control of the House sink in, the sources said, and his allies believe maintaining the support of establishment Republicans he bucked to win election is now critical to saving his presidency. The president has been on a days-long tirade, sources tell NBC News, lashing out at his...

Ted Lieu is one of the most execrable members of congress. In addition to the mere fact of being a Democrat, Lieu joins Maxine Waters in combining the worst combination of character traits any human being can possess: Overwhelming arrogance mixed with massive stupidity. On Wednesday, these traits led Lieu to let one of the many Democrat unspoken cats out of the bag on national television, telling CNN’s vapid host Brianna Keiller the following: “I would love...

    Donald Trump continues to suffer from upside-down job ratings as his second year as president winds down. In addition, views of the economy remain divided, voters feel the administration’s economic policies have not helped them -- and fewer are optimistic about future economic conditions than two years ago, according to the latest Fox News poll. Forty-five percent of voters think the economy will be in better shape a year from now, down from 56 percent who felt that way in December 2016. Although the question has been asked at irregular intervals on the Fox News poll over the past 20...

    Narrative: If you believe an Associated Press report published overnight — and you shouldn’t — rank-and-file Republicans are suddenly so worried about POTUS Donald Trump’s ‘legal troubles’ they fear he may not win reelection in 2020. Under the headline, “Republicans beginning to worry about Trump re-election,” The Associated Press reported: U.S. President Donald Trump’s intensifying legal troubles are unnerving some of his fellow Republicans. Despite his brash stance, they believe the turmoil has left him increasingly vulnerable as he gears up for what is sure to be a nasty fight for re-election. Trump, ever confident of his ability to bend...

    It’s been a grim year for those seeking to pursue and preserve the truth. Journalists around the world have been targeted and assaulted for their work. Some have paid with their freedom; others have paid with their lives. Even the president of the United States — a country that has prided itself on having freedom of the press since its founding — has repeatedly attacked the media as “the enemy of the people.” Other world leaders have echoed this aggressive stance against the media, cracking down on reporters who have tried to hold them accountable. We are living through nothing...
