  • Leakers to NYT Confirm FBI Ran Spy Operation Against Trump Campaign

    Leakers to the New York Times confirmed in a story published on Wednesday that the FBI had run a spy operation on the Trump campaign that involved government informants, secret subpoenas, and possible wiretaps. The story comes ahead of the release of the pending Department of Justice inspector general report on the FBI’s actions during the 2016 election, and likely is an attempt by the leakers to paint the FBI’s efforts in the most flattering light possible. But the story revealed that the FBI – which is supposed to be an apolitical agency – was spying on the Trump campaign...

    On Wednesday there was an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by William Galston titled: "The Clear and Present Danger of Trump.” A bold insert said: His weekend Twitter outburst calls into question his ability to discharge his powers. The article starts off: In business, it is said, the customer is always right. Politics is more complicated, because citizens are called upon to be more than consumers. “The people commonly intend the public good,” Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 71, “but their good sense would despise the adulator who should pretend that they always reason right about the means...

    “Trump in one year is already better than sixteen years of [George W. Bush and Barack Obama] put together,” said former Wall Street Journal editor Brett M. Decker, pointing to a current 17-year high in consumer confidence. Decker, an expert on Asia and the bestselling author of Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama Is Hastening America’s Decline and Ushering a Century of Chinese Domination, joined Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with Breitbart News’s Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour. “The leading indicator, when you dig into the data on why consumer confidence is high,...

    A Wall Street Journal editorial is demanding "radical transparency" on the Mueller investigation not only from the FBI and Congress, but also from other news outlets. Several days ago, Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham released a less redacted version of their criminal referral letter to the Justice Department concerning Christopher Steele -- the former British spy and author of the infamous dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The letter from the two senators clarifies the recently released House Intelligence Committee's memo describing FISA surveillance abuse by the FBI, and provides even more evidence that the Clinton...

    President Donald Trump shared the text of a Wall Street Journal editorial sounding the alarm about the information revealed in the memo declassified by the House Intelligence Committee. The editorial accused the FBI of using the FISA court and the phony opposition dossier funded by Hillary Clinton to influence the election. It read: We don’t know the political motives of the FBI and Justice officials, but the facts are damaging enough. The FBI in essence let itself and the FISA court be used to promote a major theme of the Clinton campaign. Mr. Steele and Fusion then leaked the fact...

    Fusion GPS was hired by the Obama for America campaign to perform opposition research against Mitt Romney. Fusion GPS’s job was to gather research and connect reporters who would publish hit pieces while the lawyers made the payments and managed the relationships. In early 2012, the Obama campaign launched a political hit job against Mitt Romney campaign donors.... .... It is clear now that David Corn and Michael Isikoff are all connected to the strategy of hitting “enemies” of Obama. It also seems apparent that Mother Jones and Fusion GPS may have multiple connection points. They may also have been...

    The release of the FISA memo is upon us. The four-page document Democrats have maligned as an attempt to undermine the FBI and the Russia investigation alleges egregious abuses, some of which are said to echo that of the KGB. It’s sparked a war between the Department of Justice/FBI and Congress. The White House is now involved, as they’re supportive of releasing the memo. The vote to declassify was held by the House Intelligence Committee on Monday. It passed on a party-line vote. It then undergoes a five-day period in which the president can either support its release or block...

Prior reporting showed the strong possibility Page and Strzok were leaking to the Wall Street Journal.

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hit back at the Wall Street Journal over the weekend for allegedly doctoring President Donald Trump’s words following a recent interview. What happened? It all began when the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Trump said he has a very good relationship with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. Trump’s comments came one day after he expressed willingness to re-enter discussions with the country over its nuclear program. “I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” the Journal reported Trump saying. However, the White House contests that reporting and...

    President Trump on Sunday accused The Wall Street Journal of “falsely” reporting him saying he has a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and publishing so-called fake news because the newspaper wanted a big story. “The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters,” Trump said over two tweets. “And they knew exactly what I said and...
  • Why Do 57% of Americans Want More Government?”

    The Post & Email ^ | 1/7/2018 | Ron Ewart
    “In a 2017 poll conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal, a record 57% of Americans responded that they want MORE government in their lives, and that the government should be doing more to solve people’s problems. That’s the highest percentage since they started asking this question in 1995. In fact, 57% is nearly double what people responded in the mid-90s. Furthermore, the number of Americans who feel the opposite, i.e., responded that the government is doing too many things that should be left to private businesses and individuals, fell to a near record-low 39%. Bottom line: people want more government.”...

    It's a new year, but a CNN panel hosted by Nia-Malika Henderson took a few moments this weekend to reflect on Democrats' poor messaging in 2017 - poor messaging which resulted in their pacing far behind the Republicans in fundraising. As of November, the RNC had $39.8 million in cash on hand, to the DNC's $6.3 million. Watch video hereJake Tapper also remarked on the Democrats' dry fundraising on Twitter. It's kind of a big deal, he noted. Jake Tapper @jaketapper The fundraising superiority of @gop over @dnc this year is not to be dismissed and it’s kind of astounding...

This is the cover:Not shocking, as the WSJ men’s style editors have been pushing metro-sexual men for the better part of two decades and the downright goofy-gay “fashion” for the past 8 years. So the sight of Jared Leto* on the cover of their Fall Issue of the Men’s Style magazine in a “Gucci coat, Lena Skadegard necklace (top), Paul Morelli necklace and his own gold necklace” was not shocking. After all, this former business journal and bastion of Brooks Brothers haberdashery is now owned by Rupert...

    The firm behind the salacious and unsubstantiated Trump dossier is refusing to to cooperate with the Senate Judiciary Committee's request to provide documentation or respond to questions sent from the committee in March about the clients who paid for the dossier that launched the investigation into the administration and its alleged Russian connections. The Republican Chairman of the committee, Senator Charles Grassley, warned Fusion GPS, the firm that compiled the dossier, in March about its obligation "to provide details on the history of the dossier" including the clients who paid for it. The committee also wanted information on Christopher Steele,...

    WASHINGTON—At the request of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his wife, Ivanka Trump, language critical of a global climate deal was struck from an executive order that Mr. Trump is planning to sign soon, according to multiple people familiar with the move. Mr. Trump is expected to sign within days at least two executive orders that will begin the process of trying to dismantle former President Barack Obama’s climate and environmental regulations. Mr. Kushner, a senior adviser to Mr. Trump, and Ms. Trump, the president’s eldest daughter, intervened to strike language about the climate deal from an earlier...

  • Trump Administration Looks at Driving Wedge Between Russia and Iran

    The Trump administration is exploring ways to break Russia’s military and diplomatic alliance with Iran in a bid to both end the Syrian conflict and bolster the fight against Islamic State, said senior administration, European and Arab officials involved in the policy discussions. The emerging strategy seeks to reconcile President Donald Trump’s seemingly contradictory vows to improve relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin and to aggressively challenge the military presence of Iran—one of Moscow’s most critical allies—in the Middle East, these officials say. A senior administration official said the White House doesn’t have any illusions about Russia or see Mr....

    Wall Street Journal Editor in-Chief Gerard Baker upset his newsroom Monday night with a directive to tone down “loaded” language in reporting on Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. Baker asked his reporters to stop identifying the seven countries from which immigration is temporarily banned as “majority Muslim,” because the term is “very loaded.” And he suggested identifying them as states designated by the government as terror threats instead. ... The directive caused a “ruckus” in the newsroom according to a WSJ source who talked with Politico, as some took issue with what they believe to be soft coverage of...
