    What did Nancy Pelosi know? A prior plot or spontaneous riot? Were there inside facilitators? One thing recent history has taught America is the first storyline of major tragedies or controversies is never the most accurate. Americans were told by the Bush administration that they were sucker-punched by a surprise attack on 9/11 by terrorists, only to learn the CIA and FBI had significant advance evidence of the plot and its players and failed to connect the dots. Susan Rice originally told the nation that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was carried out spontaneously by a mob...

    Now that Democrats are poised to control the White House, Senate and House, the traditional game of finger-pointing and recrimination will begin inside the GOP. The first instinct for politicians will be to assign blame, call names and jockey for position. But the 2020 election wasn't just an election, it was a political watershed in which the rules and strategy for winning were rewritten. The November election (and Tuesday’s Georgia curtain call) wasn't won and lost by the tactics, spending, individual players and messaging in the weeks before Nov. 3, according to interviews conducted with more than three dozen frontline...

    More than 100 state legislators from contested battleground states have asked Vice President Mike Pence to delay by 10 days the congressional certification of the elections in their states so they can have more time to investigate irregularities and illegalities. The dramatic requests, delivered in various letters on the eve of a joint session of Congress, added intrigue and drama to a process that normally is pro forma. While Pence has said he supports lawmakers who are concerned about the conduct of the November election he has not indicated whether he’d be willing to go as far as delaying counting...

    JustTheNews Editor in Chief John Solomon didn’t let former Vice President Joe Biden get away with attacking the Trump economy. Especially since several members of Team Biden have made millions from it. As Solomon put it, new financial disclosure reports with the Office of Government Ethics revealed that Biden “and his closest advisers personally fared extremely well during the Trump years, with some raking in millions each.” Specifically, Biden himself “saw an historic rise in income and net worth, scoring at least $16.7 millions in income since Trump took office in 2017, or about three times what he and his...

    A top food chain CEO bashing socialism should be news, just not to the ironically named liberal outlet Newsweek. Whole Foods co-founder and CEO John Mackey said on Friday that “Socialism has been tried 42 times in the last 100 years and 42 failures ... We have to keep capitalism, I would argue, we need conscious capitalism," according to Newsweek. Instead of just reporting his comments, Newsweek then tried to editorialize and take a shot at his argument: “It's not exactly clear what attempts at socialism Mackey was referring to. Several countries that adopted authoritarian Communism are now free-market economies,...

    What a difference three years makes. During Thanksgiving 2017, retired three-star general Michael Flynn was somberly making plans to head to court and plead guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI during a late January 2017 interview, his reputation in tatters and his bank account drained. A day before Thanksgiving this year, a jubilant Flynn took a phone call from President Trump to learn his conviction had been erased by a full pardon. In between, a legal drama of epic proportions unfolded, one that exposed deep flaws with the FBI, the Justice Department and a news media industry...

    Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday laid out the Trump campaign's legal strategy for winning the White House through a number of legal challenges. According to Dershowitz, the strategy is to pull electoral votes away from former Vice President Joe Biden. "The clock is a double-edged sword in this election because if they don't have enough time but if they can put forward a sufficiently strong case then they may be able to get some Republican Secretaries of States or legislatures to say, 'Look, we just don't have enough time to certify these electors' and if they can bring...

    nder a microscope during a Senate hearing two years ago, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg insisted the key to detecting those trying to influence elections, including foreigners, was transparency. "This is an area where I think more transparency will really help discourse overall and root out foreign interference in elections," Zuckerberg testified in August 2018, a pledge about Facebook political ads that he delivered by providing more information about the ads and their sponsors to users. But Zuckerberg's own influence on the 2020 election — an unprecedented $350 million gambit to route money though the nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic...

    In the presumed final count, Biden had originally led in the county by roughly 3,000 votes. Revised totals show that Trump won the county by around 2,500. Addressing the alleged software glitch, Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said Friday during a press conference that "47 counties [in Michigan] use this same software in the same capacity." "These counties that use this software need to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies," she said.

    Grant application turned over under federal court order quadruples polling places from primary, promises as many as 800,000 votes from city in November. Only 675,000 voted in 2016. Documents produced by the city of Philadelphia under a federal court order show millions of dollars in nonprofit grant money donated by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is being used to quadruple the number of voting places and massively grow the number of ballots cast in the Democratic stronghold on Nov. 3. The memos were turned over in a federal lawsuit filed by the conservative Thomas More Society, and they detail how city...

    FBI analysts working on the Michael Flynn Russia investigation originally planned to end the inquiry in fall 2016 and eventually bought liability insurance fearing they could be sued after their bosses continued to keep the investigation open based on "conspiracy theories," explosive new text messages showed Thursday. "We all went and purchased professional liability insurance," one analyst texted on Jan. 10, 2017, just 10 days before Trump took office. "Holy crap," a colleague responded. "All the analysts too?" "Yep," the first analyst said. "All the folks at the Agency as well." "Can I ask who are the most likely litigators?"...

    Memos detail effort to monitor social media of Fox News personalities Hannity, Ingraham and Dobbs, as well as president's son Don. Jr. and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Officials at the U.S. embassy in Kiev ordered the monitoring of 13 prominent Americans' social media accounts during the early days of the Ukraine scandal in spring 2019 and later were informed their activities potentially violated the Privacy Act, according to State Department memos made public on Tuesday. The memos, released under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, show those targeted for monitoring included President Trump's...

    DNI hints new declassification coming soon. Some want it to be a congressional complaint to the CIA inspector general questioning the Obama intelligence assessment on Russian intentions. By his own admission, ex-CIA Director John Brennan chafed at being questioned earlier this month by federal prosecutor John Durham about the Obama administration's intelligence assessment that Russia’s meddling in 2016 election was designed to help Donald Trump. Brennan "questioned why the analytic tradecraft and the findings of the ICA are being scrutinized by the Department of Justice, especially since they have been validated by the Mueller Report and the bipartisan Senate Select...

    Obama State Department considered Konstantin Kilimnik a ‘sensitive source,’ Senate report now identifies him as Russian intel officer. In December 2015, the Obama State Department and its ambassador in Kiev were upset over a negative story about then-Vice President Joe Biden ahead of his visit to Ukraine. So a U.S. embassy official turned to a "sensitive source" for help. "Thank you very much for looking into this and very sorry to ask," U.S. embassy official Alexander "Sasha" Kasanof wrote businessman Konstantin Kilimnik in a Dec. 6, 2015 email obtained by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators and reviewed by Just the...

    The chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus is urging Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx to step aside from the White House coronavirus response team, arguing their prescriptions for the pandemic have done more harm than good. “Their policies and solutions do not value and protect ALL lives.

    ODNI recently refused to answer if U.S. spy agencies monitor lawmakers, saying any admission could reveal methods. The dramatic disclosure earlier this year that the Obama administration sought to unmask ex-National Security Adviser Mike Flynn's conversations intercepted overseas is reviving a long-unanswered question: Do U.S. spy agencies also monitor members of Congress? That question has lingered at least since May 2017, when Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) demanded to know whether his conversations overseas while running for president in 2016 were umasked by the Obama administration. Now, the question has been renewed by the Project for Privacy and Surveillance Accountability (PPSA),...
