    Moments ago FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer responded to the requests from the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte. (full pdf’s below – #1 and #2) There are nuances in each response specific to the statutory roles of each Chairman and the specific requests made by each committee.  Reflected in Judge Collyer’s responses is a need for careful consideration of each unique request.♦House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes holds primary oversight authority over the aggregate Intelligence Community (IC).  Chairman Nunes has requested the transcripts from the FISA Court during the DOJ/FBI Title-1 surveillance...

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) accused FBI Director Christopher Wray Thursday of being in open rebellion against President Donald Trump by opposing release of the controversial memo detailing surveillance abuses and anti-Trump bias within the Justice Department. Gingrich made his remarks on Fox News Americas Newsroom. If you want an example of the deep state, you apparently had the head of the FBI go to the White House with the deputy attorney general, make his case to the White House they are his superiors in the executive branch and get turned down, Gingrich said....

    American Free Press contributor Victor Thorn, 54, a long-time researcher and critic of Hillary and Bill Clinton, has been found dead. Police reports indicate he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The author of more than 20 books, he was best known for the Clinton trilogy, three definitive works that delved into the history of the power couple including their sordid scandals, Bill Clintons sexual assaults of multiple women, and the drug running out of Mena, Arkansas while Clinton was governor of the state.

    President Obama who famously promised when he took office in 2009 to bring about an unprecedented level of openness in government has headed off to Baltimore for a retreat with Democrats with one special caveat: No press allowed. Newsmax reported that in previous years, the Democrats have let in some members of the media. But this year, none are allowed though some topics of discussion have sneaked into the public arena. The Hill reported that the politicos will be discussing Mr. Obamas latest proposal to use tax dollars to pay for community college as well...

    Obama says intel officials 'underestimated' rise of ISIS Never autoplay videos One wouldn't be surprised if President Obama's Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, woke up Monday morning checking for tire tracks after his boss effectively threw him under the bus for having "underestimated" the threat posed by the Islamic State militant group. But Obama's remarks in a "60 Minutes" interview drew immediate objections from lawmakers and the intelligence community. In the interview, Obama was asked how the Islamic State was able to gain so much territory. "Our head of the intelligence community Jim Clapper has acknowledged that I think...

I thought about that issue a lot and [went] back and forth on it before I signed on to my principles and I just concluded that its not good for the country in the long term to have millions and millions of people who are forever prohibited from becoming citizens, Rubio told reporters on his way to a Senate vote. That hasnt worked out well for Europe. Responding to a question from TPM, Rubio said he did not think Bushs surprise move would make it harder to convince conservatives to accept an eventual path...

    NEW YORK Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is moving swiftly behind the scenes to lock down some of Wall Streets biggest donors ahead of the 2016 presidential race. In recent weeks, the rising GOP star and possible 2016 hopeful has quietly met with some of the most powerful GOP backers in the world of high finance. The roster includes Blackstone Group Chief Executive Officer Stephen Schwarzman, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. CEO Henry Kravis and senior executives at Goldman Sachs and Barclays Capital among others. Rubio has gotten backing from big Wall Street titans before, notably hedge fund manager and...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Saturday panned a reported immigration reform proposal from President Obama, saying it would be dead on arrival in Congress. If actually proposed, the Presidents bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come, said Rubio in a statement. His response followed a report in USA Today on Saturday which said the Obama administration has prepared a draft plan that includes a provision to allow illegal immigrants to obtain green cards within eight years. The proposal would create a Lawful Prospective Immigrant...

    Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's pause to take a drink of water during his rebuttal to President Obama's State-of-the-Union speech was declared a possible career ender by CNN's Wolf Blitzer. Voters may tolerate a lot from their prospective leaders, Blitzer observed. We've learned that diddling interns is okay. A bogus birth certificate may be worth a few snickers, but does not seem to undermine our confidence in a man's leadership capabilities. However, the jarring interruption of a high-profile speech by a moment of thirst would appear to be the type of thing that raises serious questions about fitness to serve....

    On Wednesday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams proclaimed that Florida Senator Marco Rubio taking a sip of water during his response to the State of the Union was "the televised moment from last night that just might live on forever." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Williams expounded: "Well, it's one of the cruelest aspects of politics in the television age. No matter how well-crafted the content, no matter how thoughtful a person you are, it's the television moments, the superficial, purely visual moments that are often remembered forever instead. And that will certainly...

The Florida Republican poses a dangerous political threat to Democrats because of his keen ability to emotionally connect with voters, Jones said.

    The liberal hosts on MSNBC just couldn't get enough of watching U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio reach for a glass of water and take a sip during his rebuttal of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, airing the snippet a staggering 155 times during the Wednesday broadcast schedule. Other cable news networks showed the footage far less often. CNN aired it 34 times, and Fox News Channel played it just 12 times -- all of which took place on The OReilly Factor and Hannity while the hosts discussed the media's obsession with the Florida Republican's watergate incident. MSNBC's total...

    When Texas Gov. Rick Perry floated the idea of secession if the federal government continues to pursue an aggressive tax-and-spend policy, the mainstream media, as well as the political establishment, cringed. MSNBCs Chris Matthews called talk of secession whack-job stuff, calling Mr. Perry a bozo and telling the Texas governor, You dont have a choice buddy. Mr. Matthews colleague, Rachael Maddow, said Mr. Perry was flirting to the point of adultery by talking about secession, while commentator Thomas Frank reinforced the disconnect between the media and many Americans. What youre seeing what is one of the surprising things about...

    We have recently heard many shocking stories of brutal killings and ruthless violence related to drug cartels warring with Mexican and US officials. It is approaching the fever pitch of a full blown crisis. Unfortunately, the administration is not likely to waste this opportunity to further expand government. Hopefully, we can take a deep breath and look at history for the optimal way to deal with this dangerous situation, which is not unprecedented. Alcohol prohibition in the 1920s brought similar violence, gangs, lawlessness, corruption and brutality. The reason for the violence was not that making and selling alcohol was inherently...

Photo: John Shinkle Mitt Romneys political action committee has raised $571,000 this year, according to a report filed this week with the Federal Election Commission. The stated mission of the committee, Free and Strong America PAC, is to support officeholders and candidates who are dedicated to promoting public policies that will strengthen America. But the group also helps keep Romney a former Massachusetts governor believed to be positioning himself for a run at the 2012 Republican presidential nomination in...
