    Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews. Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks...

    The Defense Department said Thursday it "erroneously" retweeted a message calling for the resignation of President Donald Trump and Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) over sexual assault allegations. The tweet, posted by @ProudResister and retweeted to the PentagonÂ’s more than 5.2 million followers, also called on AlabamaÂ’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race. At least eight women have accused Moore of sexual harassment or assault while they were in their teens. "The solution is simpleÂ… Roy Moore: Step down from the race. Al Franken: Resign from congress. Donald Trump: Resign from the presidency. GOP: Stop...

    Malacańang said President Duterte has earned the trust of United States (US) President Donald Trump after the White House announced it was pouring in $101.3 million (about P5.1 billion) to support the initiatives of the Duterte administration. In a statement issued Wednesday upon Trump’s return, the White House said the US government pledged the amount to support the rehabilitation of Marawi City, the country’s counter-terrorism efforts, and the administration’s drug war. According to the White House statement, of the $101.3 million, $14.3 million (P750 million) will be for the rehabilitation of Marawi City; $85 million for counter terrorism-related equipments, training...

    President Trump did us all proud on his Asia trip – at least those of us who are still prouder to be Americans rather than citizens of the world. He scored points by simply behaving like the leader of our nation and the free world. President Obama was never comfortable in either role. He often acted like he was ashamed of the United States and gave speeches that blurred the distinction between friend and foe. Not President Trump. He was open and forthright about his aims: he was in Asia to address North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and long-range...

    The Pentagon confirmed Tuesday that it will pay for a soldier’s gender reassignment surgery for the first time, according to multiple reports. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed News reporter that an active-duty military member received sex-reassignment surgery Tuesday in a private hospital. “Because this service member had already begun a sex-reassignment course of treatment, and the treating doctor deemed this surgery medically necessary, a waiver was approved by the director of the Defense Health Agency,” White said. “The Supplemental Health Care Program will cover this surgery in accordance with the Department’s interim guidance...

    The national left-wing media trying to make way too much President Trump's comments on Putin and Russian meddling in the election. While they continue to ignore the obvious Clinton issues, as does the special prosecutor and FBI. But as former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy notes: Mueller is aggressive hunting down the Trump campaign. The Obama Justice Department, FBI and national media were ever so gentle and utterly disinterested in pursuing even the most obvious questions about Hillary Clinton. The fix was in from the very top and very early then-President Obama during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" exonerated Hillary...
  • Trump was played by Putin? Not compared to Obama

    So Washington Post and other media outlets go to James Clapper and John Brennan – who both lied to Congress and who essentially allowed Putin to do whatever he wanted in Ukraine -- to say that Trump is being played? One of the first things Barack Obama did upon taking office was to back away from a commitment to put up missile defense shields in the Czech Republic and Poland to appease Putin. When Putin attacked Ukraine, Obama wouldn't even provide Ukraine with defensive weapons -- and that certainly pleased Putin. I don't believe Trump ever joked about Russian hostility...

    VIENNA -- A new review by the United Nations agency monitoring Iran's compliance with a treaty that restricts its nuclear activities has not identified any violations by Tehran. The quarterly report issued on Monday by the International Atomic Energy Agency is significant considering President Donald Trump's criticism of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. "Iran is now subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime, and the IAEA has so far had access to all the locations it needed to visit in the country," Amano said, pushing back on the criticism from Mr. Trump and Republican lawmakers. On Friday, Amano...

    A Staff Sgt. in the Marines has just had his 2012 conviction for urinating on dead terrorists overturned. The shocking reversal comes after the revelation that an Obama official railroaded the soldier. Staff Sgt. Joseph Chamblin, one of several Marine Corps soldiers convicted in 2012 for having recorded themselves urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, had his conviction overturned this week because an Obama-appointed official had attempted to rig his trial.

    Shocking! Shocking, I tell you! The #FakeNews press gaggle distorted President Donald J. Trump’s comments regarding Russia and Putin. Apparently they were more torqued off than usual because they had been excluded from covering “the meeting.” Nearly all U.S. journalists were barred from entering summit events where President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin were interacting, leaving it unclear what the two leaders discussed…Only reporters from Fox News and an official White House photographer were allowed to enter meetings where more than a dozen world leaders mingled…Others were left to wait in a holding room, with some being given...

    In July 2016, the Obama administration announced its decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for felony mishandling of classified information and destruction of government files. In the aftermath, I observed that there is a very aggressive way that the Justice Department and the FBI go about their business when they are trying to make a case — one profoundly different from the way they went about the Clinton emails investigation. There, they tried not to make the case. That observation bears repeating today, as we watch Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any possible Trump-campaign collusion in Russia’s alleged interference...

    Bowe Bergdahl deserted his unit in 2009. His desertion was celebrated by the obama administration. Standing next to Bergdahl's parents, Bergdahl's dad proudly sporting his Taliban beard obama said this: THE PRESIDENT:  Good afternoon, everybody.  This morning, I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home. Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays and holidays and the simple moments with family and friends, which all of us take for granted.  But while Bowe was gone he was never forgotten.  His parents thought about him and prayed for him every single day,...

    With the Democrats blasting Russia for "interfering" in U.S. elections, I think it’s time to discuss the recent history of U.S. interference in elections elsewhere. 1: Team Obama tried to defeat Bibi Netanyahu in Israel In 2015, the Obama administration illegally funneled money to leftist opposition groups in Israel to help them bring down the government led by Benjamin Netanyahu: $350,000 was given to a group called One Voice Movement (OVM). This group said it wants to bring about "peace negotiations between Israel and Palestine." It goes without saying that OVM was and is against Netanyahu. That's bad enough, but...

    On November 8, 2016, America's chief storytellers—those within the bubbles of media and politics—lost the narrative they had controlled for decades. In a space of 24 hours, the concept of "conventional wisdom" seemed to vanish for good. How did this happen? What follows are over 40 brand new interviews and behind-the-scenes stories from deep inside The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, Fox News, and more—plus first-hand accounts from the campaigns, themselves. We've spent a year hearing the spin. Now it's time for the truth. THE RUN-UP Steve Bannon, Trump campaign CEO: When I first came on the campaign,...

    Prominent liberals combined to pour millions into Virginia to support Dem candidate Ralph Northam A group backed by former President Barack Obama and headed by former Attorney General Eric Holder poured $1 million into the Virginia gubernatorial race in support of Democrat Ralph Northam, who on Tuesday defeated Republican Ed Gillespie. Other prominent liberals, including progressive mega-donor Tom Steyer and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, also devoted large sums of money and resources into the effort to elect Northam.

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile has been on a roll recently. She’s ripped into the DNC’s former leadership, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now former President Barack Obama. In her new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile outlined how Obama leeched off the Democratic Party to further his own causes, even if it meant bankrupting the entire party, The Daily Caller reported. “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of...

    California NAACP Denounces ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ as ‘Racist,’ ‘Anti-Black People’ BY: Alex Griswold November 8, 2017 3:11 pm The California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is calling on lawmakers to strip "The Star-Spangled Banner" of its status as the national anthem. The state civil rights organization has been circulating two petitions in the California State Legislature, one that calls the song "one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon," and another that praises former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the anthem, the Sacramento Bee reported. "This song is...

    Back in 2007, the National Intelligence Estimate was released which all but absolved Iran of suspicions that it was on course to develop nuclear weapons. Rich Lowry writes In November 2007, US intelligence agencies wrote a National Intelligence Estimate concluding, "We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program." . . The 2007 NIE had a very circumscribed definition of a weapons program, but it included "covert conversion-related and uranium enrichment-related work." Exactly what Qom is for. What do the Iranians have to do to convince US intelligence they have a weapons program? The...
