    I hope the people over at the Fed will read today’s Wall Street Journal Editorial before they make yet another mistake. Also, don’t let the market become any more illiquid than it already is. Stop with the 50 B’s. Feel the market, don’t just go by meaningless numbers. Good luck!

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is. Les is no more.: Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing...

    Reporter who broke news of Steele dossier used to surveil ex-Trump aide calls its claims largely 'false' The salacious and unverified opposition research dossier cited by the FBI as its main justification to surveil a top Trump aide contains many claims that are "likely false," according to the Yahoo News reporter who was among the first to break the news of the dossier's existence. Michael Isikoff's statements on John Ziegler's Free Speech Broadcasting podcast came a day before Michael Cohen adviser Lanny Davis reiterated that Cohen has never been to Prague -- where, according to the dossier, he traveled to...

    KSLA-TV ^ | December 17, 2018 | Zeke Miller and Lolita C. Baldor, The Associated Press
    President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order soon, possibly as early as Tuesday, creating a U.S. Space Command that will better organize and advance the military's vast operations in space, U.S. officials say. Vice President Mike Pence will make the announcement Tuesday at the Kennedy Space Center, in Cape Canaveral, Florida, two U.S. officials said. Trump's order is separate from his oft-stated goal of creating a "Space Force" as an independent armed service branch, but it's considered a step in that direction. The move will launch a long and complicated process, requiring the Defense Department to pull...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday night released a memo detailing then-national security adviser Michael Flynn's interview with FBI agents, in which Flynn repeatedly lied about his contacts with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The FBI officials who interviewed Flynn, including former agent Peter Strzok, gave him multiple opportunities to describe his conversations with Kislyak. Flynn denied that he spoke to the then-Russian ambassador about sanctions. The memo about the FBI interview was filed by Mueller in federal court in Washington, D.C. Flynn is set to be sentenced in that federal court on Tuesday. DEVELOPING

    Folks, we are at a cross roads...there are no Hannity, Rush, or Beck bombshells to help PDJT. The Fed does its thing tomorrow, and I am not hopeful of Powell backing off a rate hike. The market is being pushed down by hedge fund managers (not little ones, BIG billionaire ones), Steyer, Soros, Buffet (yes, him, too), the Fed, etc. They will raise rates and we'll be tanking for more days on end, and, some Freepers will say it's just over-valued and continue to pretend. Does anyone think the market isn't being tanked to prepare for 2020? Let's say Justice...

    The wall. Say those words and you need say no more. There is only one wall on America’s mind. It was even the protagonist in a White House reality show. The TV ratings were boffo! Candidate Donald Trump vowed to build the wall on the Mexican border if elected, and has had only minimal success. The migrant caravans from Central America ­refocused attention on its absence at key crossing points. But the wall has grown into something larger than itself. It is the ultimate symbol of Trumpism to both supporters and opponents. To supporters, the wall, combined with better trade...

    Former FBI Director James Comey on Monday railed against President Trump and his Republican allies in Congress, arguing their attacks on the FBI made no sense. Comey slammed GOP lawmakers for remaining silent while he said Trump disregarded the rule of law. "So another day of Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Steele dossier,” Comey told reporters after he was interviewed for roughly six hours behind closed doors. “This while the president of the United States is lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI and attacking the rule of law in this country. How does that make any sense?” In biting...

    House Democrats are making plans for a prolonged shutdown that will begin Saturday if the White House and lawmakers are unable to work out an agreement on President Trump’s demands for $5 billion in funding for his wall on the Mexican border. “We're making contingency plans for a long-term shutdown,” said one Democratic House aide, who pointed to the possibility that the partial government shutdown would last into the beginning of the new Congress, when Democrats will take over the House majority. “If the shutdown goes until Jan. 3, we'll bring up a funding bill,” the aide said. Democrats, after...

    Video at link. Mary Ann Mendoza displays picture of son killed by illegal alien. (Screenshot) Mothers who have had children killed by illegal aliens are rallying at a San Diego, California port of entry this week to demand Congress fund construction of a border wall. Angel Families Founder Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son, Police Officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed by an illegal alien, says recent comments by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) opposing wall funding prompted her to hold a press conference: “Angel Families decided that we needed to do a press conference here at a...

    Associates of onetime national security adviser Michael Flynn are being charged with illegally lobbying for the extradition of Fethullah GĂĽlen, a U.S.-based Turkish cleric who has been a frequent public target of Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan. Federal prosecutors with the U.S. attorney's office in the Eastern District of Virginia on Monday unsealed charges against Bijan Kian, who worked as a partner at the now-defunct Flynn Intel Group, for working as an unregistered foreign agent. Kian, also known by Bijan Rafiekian, has been charged alongside Kamil Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish national and associate of Flynn who is currently believed to...

    The caravan of people trying to illegally enter the United States is taking steps to vindicate President Trump’s policy of keeping them out. On the one hand, 280 of them have been arrested by Mexican police for burglarizing residences in Tijuana. Meanwhile, another 100 of them have tried their hand at extortion by demanding $50,000 apiece as the price of them ceasing to assault the border and go home. The Trump Administration has flatly rejected this blackmail demand, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) urged consideration of what they termed “a reasonable request.”...

    TYPE “TRUMP” TO SEE WHAT HE’S UP AGAINST I saw an article over the weekend that listed the various legal ways President Trump, family, businesses, and associates are being attacked. It’s mind boggling. If they didn’t find something on him, that should be the story, because with the mountains of laws in our modern society, you can find something on anyone—particularly, I’m sure, on the those who are going after Trump the hardest. So I searched for the article this morning, to include its link in this post. I couldn’t remember the title, or even any keywords in it, so...

    Former FBI Director James Comey is back on the Hill for an encore, after a controversial appearance more than a week ago in which he told lawmakers seeking answers over the FBI's handling of the Trump-Russia collusion probe some version of "I don't know" at least 245 times. Comey is set to testify behind closed doors again Monday morning, before members of the House oversight and judiciary committees. The prior Dec. 7 session left lame-duck Republican lawmakers fuming as Comey repeatedly said "I don't remember," "I don't know" and "I don't recall" when grilled about investigations Republicans believed were aimed...

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan is scheduled to sentence General Mike Flynn on Tuesday morning, and there’s a lot at stake. To begin with, there’s the future of a fine man who transformed the way we do battlefield intelligence and the ensuing operations against our enemies in Iraq, where we won in large part because Flynn’s (and General Stan McChrystal’s) new tactics, and then in Afghanistan, again in tandem with McChrystal.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Why is Robert Mueller so desperate to keep the original Flynn 302 hidden?: Andy McCarthy, who teams with Victor Davis Hanson as the only two writers worth reading anymore at The National Review, has a piece out this morning in which he asks the single most key point in the effort to frame General Mike Flynn: Where is the FBI’s 302 form from his January 24, 2017 “interview” with Peter Strzok and another agent? In their most recent court filing submitted on Friday, Mueller and his team did present a “302” form...

    Five months before the Kavanaugh nomination hearings, the following (concerning the #MeToo movement) was posted anonymously on LinkedIn. It was posted on June 10th, and within 72 hours it was taken down. Now, not even the Wayback Machine has a record of it. Welcome to modern Internet censorship. The article reads as truth. Fundamentally, the #MeToo movement might just be undoing all of the damage that Affirmative Action and HR Harassment Firings have done to men’s ability to work over the last forty years. Perhaps the pendulum of political correctness is starting to swing in the other direction. Perhaps, one...
