MEMO RELEASED: FBI Officials Knew Political Origins of Dossier, But Used It Anyway

Featured, Politics
The House Intelligence Committee released its classified MEMO detailing alleged abuse by senior FBI and Justice Department officials on Friday, after the president approved its release. Among the memo’s findings are: The anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee formed an “essential” part of the initial and all three renewal surveillance applications against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page;  The political origins of the dossier were “known to senior DOJ and FBI officials,” but those origins were not included in applications to obtain the warrant; Also used to justify the surveillance warrants against Page was a news story supposedly corroborating the dossier, that was pushed by the dossier author Christopher Steele himsel

The Government Could Shut Down Again Because Congress Can’t Figure Out A DACA Deal

Featured, Politics
Congress and the White House are not on course to reach an immigration deal by the end of the month, meaning hundreds of thousands of people could lose their residency status and another government shutdown could be in the cards. With just one week to go before a self-imposed deadline, Congress’s efforts to reach an immigration deal are in shambles. Lawmakers are hoping to avoid another government shutdown and extend DACA, the Obama-era program that allows children of undocumented immigrants to live and work in the country. The program expires March 5, putting 700,000 people at risk of deportation. The Senate is supposed to vote on a bill by Feb. 8, but when asked Tuesday whether the Senate is any closer to a DACA deal than it was when the last government shutdown ended two weeks

A White House official confirmed to reporters that President Donald Trump has read the House Intelligence Committee FISA memo after the committee voted to release it to the public and plans to release it on Friday. The official confirmed that White House officials examined the memo to check for classified information, but that the president was comfortable with the release as long as Congress approved it. “The president is ok with it,” an official told reporters after they boarded Air Force One with the president after his speech in West Virginia. “I doubt there will be any redactions. It’s in Congress’ hands after that.” A second official confirmed to Breitbart News that the document would likely be released on Friday. In response, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate M

In a fiery speech to hundreds of law enforcement officers, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement excoriated the political enablers of illegal immigration on Wednesday, saying he’ll “never back down” from safeguarding the border. Speaking at the Border Security Expo in San Antonio, Thomas Homan singled out sanctuary cities and the ongoing congressional debate over so-called “Dreamers.” “If we get a clean DACA bill, shame on all of us,” Homan said, referring to the Obama administration’s contentious Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "You can’t address DACA and reward people that brought children here illegally and not address underlying reasons of DACA.” Homan, who said that he “100 percent support[s] the wall,” added that he is “sick and tire

Atlanta Fed Sees GDP Rocketing to 5.4% in First Quarter

The American economy is on track to grow at a 5.4 percent annualized rate in the first quarter of this year, the Atlanta Federal Reserve’s GDP Now forecast model showed on Monday. The regional Fed’s forecast rose from last week’s 4.2 percent growth following a report on manufacturing that showed more expansion than expected. The forecast of real consumer spending growth rose from 3.1 percent to 4.0 percent, while the forecast of investment growth soared from 5.2 percent to 9.2 percent. This is an early reading, based on just one-months data. Even the most optimistic economists do not expect the economy to expand at that rate in the first quarter. Both the Atlanta Fed’s GDP Now and the New York Fed’s Nowcast had readings for the fourth quarter of 2017 that were substantially higher t

It’s down to the wire for President Trump and lawmakers to come up with a plan for the hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. In September 2017, the Trump administration officially announced its plan to phase out DACA – which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children – with a six-month delay for recipients. Here’s a look at the DACA program and why the Trump administration dismantled it. What is the DACA program? Nearly 800,000 undocumented youth fell under the DACA program's umbrella.  (Reuters/Jose Luis Gonzalez) The DACA program was formed through executive order by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and allowed certain people who came to the U.S. illegally as mino

President Donald Trump credited the American spirit and work ethic for building the nation’s infrastructure in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday and called on Congress to craft legislation to modernize it. “As we rebuild our industries, it is also time to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure,” Trump said. “America is a nation of builders.” “We built the Empire State Building in just one year,” Trump said. “Isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a minor permit approved for the building of a simple road?” “I am asking both parties to come together to give us safe, fast, reliable, and modern infrastructure that our economy needs and our people deserve,” Trump said. “Tonight, I’m calling on Congress to produce a bill that generates at least $1.5 trillion f

In 2007, a woman filed a sexual harassment complaint against her boss, who was punished but not fired. In a long Facebook post late Tuesday night just before the State of the Union, Clinton wrote, "The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t." On Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton said if she had it to do over again, she would fire the former campaign adviser who was accused of sexual harassment on her 2008 campaign. "The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t," she wrote in a Facebook post.

President Donald Trump will deliver his first State of the Union address tonight while Americans’ satisfaction with the economy is at a 17-year high, workers are feeling the benefits of the tax cuts, and unemployment numbers for people of color are at all-time lows. Democrats, though, are united in their anger and hate, with left-wing agitators even urging lawmakers to have their “Joe Wilson moment” tonight. But the left will not be unified in its message, as at least five Democrats will jump in front of the cameras after Trump finishes speaking to deliver various responses to the party’s many factions. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA) will give the party’s official response, and the left is already criticizing the bland Congressman’s selection, arguing that a woman of color should have been cho
