    • McMaster: Evidence is 'incontrovertible' that Russia interfered in 2016 election
      The indictment alleges the goal of the Russians was to support then-candidate Donald Trump and hurt Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

      Some of the Russians allegedly posed as U.S. people and communicated with "unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities."

      So much for no collusion...

    • White Nationalist Leader Exposed: Never Servered in Iraq as he Claimed!
      None of that justifies White genocide.

      The Dalai Lama didn't serve in Iraq yet he understands why wiping out entire cultures with mass immigration for "progress" is wrong.

      It's too late in the game to cry about some bullshit about alleged stolen valour.

      Grow up.

    • Nashville mayor's ex-lover outpaced other cops in overtime pay: report
      The police officer with whom Nashville Mayor Megan Barry recently admitted having an affair received far more overtime pay in recent years than other members of Barry's security detail, according to a published report.

      In fact, Sgt. Rob Forrest received $53,000 more in overtime pay from July 2015 to January of this year than the other four officers combined, the Tennessean reported.

      In all, Forrest received $173,843.13 in overtime for that period, the newspaper reported - a steep increase from the amount of overtime pay he received during the tenure of Barry's predecessor, Mayor Karl Dean, according to the report.

      Barry, a Democrat, was elected mayor of Tennessee's capital city in September 2015. She disclosed that her affair with Forrest began in the spring of 2016, but she has not said when it ended, the newspaper reported.

      David Raybin, an attorney for Forrest, would not comment when asked by the Tennessean whether Forrest - as leader of the detail -- scheduled himself to work more overtime to further his affair with the mayor.

    • Official no longer employed at volunteer agency after reports of racist comments
      An official at the Corporation for National and Community Service is no longer with the agency that oversees federal volunteer efforts weeks after reports that he verbally harassed an Uber driver.

      Daniel Pollack served as a senior adviser in the agency, which handles federal volunteer programs like AmeriCorps and the Social Innovation Fund. A spokeswoman for the agency confirmed to CNN on Friday that Pollack is no longer employed at the agency.

      CNN's KFile reported last month that Pollack had been banned from using Uber over anti-Muslim and racially-charged comments that he allegedly made to a driver.

      Pollack worked directly under Carl Higbie, a Trump-appointed official who resigned last month as chief of external affairs for the agency after CNN reported that he had made racist, sexist and anti-Muslim comments on a radio show.

    • Goldman Sachs CEO gives Donald Trump credit for the economy, says it's better than if Hillary Clinton won
      The US economy is better off under President Donald Trump that it would have been under Hillary Clinton, according to Lloyd Blankfein, the CEO of Goldman Sachs.

      "If the president didn't win and Hillary Clinton won ... I bet you the economy is higher today than it otherwise would be," Blankfein said in an interview with CNN's Christine Romans.

      Blankfein had backed Clinton's bid for the White House.

      Two days before Trump's inauguration, he linked Wall Street's newfound confidence to Trump, but fell short of giving him full credit. "I think one of the reasons why the election had such a dramatic effect is because it was drawing people in the direction that it was already heading," Blankfein told CNBC from the 2017 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

      Economic growth has remained strong since Trump took office in November 2016, and hit his 3% target in two quarters last year. Business leaders' confidence has been bolstered by corporate tax cuts and pledges by the Trump administration to roll back regulations.

    • Billionaire Trump backer Peter Thiel leaving Silicon Valley over politics: report
      Billionaire venture capitalist and Trump supporter Peter Thiel is reducing his involvement in the tech industry and relocating his home and business firms from Silicon Valley to Los Angeles, according to a new report.

      Thiel, one of the few vocal backers of President Trump in Silicon Valley, has become frustrated with the overwhelmingly left-leaning nature of the Bay Area, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

      "Silicon Valley is a one-party state," Thiel said at an appearance last month at Stanford University. "That's when you get in trouble politically in our society, when you're all in one side."

      Thiel has also considered resigning from the board of Facebook, but is unlikely to do so soon, The Journal reported.

    • Democrats aim to keep Bill Clinton off 2018 stump, amid #MeToo era
      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/14/dems-aim-to-keep-bill-clinton-off-2018-stump-amid-metoo-era.html

      Democrats championing efforts to fight sexual misconduct as part of their 2018 election platform reportedly hope to keep one of the party's biggest past attractions off the campaign trail -- former President Bill Clinton.

      Clinton's history of misconduct allegations surfaced repeatedly during his wife's presidential run, even as then-candidate Donald Trump faced accusations of his own. But in the #MeToo era, Bill Clinton's conduct has come under renewed scrutiny from fellow Democrats.

      Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., told Politico that Clinton's presence "just brings up a lot of issues that will be very tough for Democrats."

      Jayapal is a leading voice on Capitol Hill on how Washington should approach sexual harassment, following several allegations against members in recent months.

    • Democratic consultant resigns in face of sexual misconduct allegation
      http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/373785-dem-consultant-facing-sexual-misconduct-allegations-resigns

      A prominent Democratic consultant resigned Tuesday after being accused of sexual assault, HuffPost reported.

      Jim Walsh, who founded DSPolitical and Rising Tide Interactive, announced Tuesday he was leaving both consulting firms. His decision came after a woman claimed Walsh assaulted her when she was 21 years old and looking to get into politics.

      The Democrative Legislative Campaign Committee told HuffPost that it had received a complaint against Walsh and was launching an investigation.

      DSPolitical and Rising Tide Interactive told HuffPost in a statement the organizations are "deeply saddened" by the allegations.

    • FBI director: Chinese spies 'a whole-of-society' threat to US
      Since the October Revolution you were under their heel. The mule, enduring anti-eugenics, way-alien immigration policy to produce "with the people" hybrids, the 19fu pisssault of President Piss (pick one), "peace out man", then suddenly in 1991 China is the enemy.

    • Democrat Margaret Good Flips Seat in Florida, The 36th Democratic Flip Since Donald Trump's Inauguration
      https://www.thedailybeast.com/democrat-margaret-good-flips-seat-in-florida-the-36th-democratic-flip-since-trumps-inauguration

      Democrat Margaret Good won a special election for state representative in Florida's 72nd district on Tuesday night, earning the Democratic party its 36th legislative flip since Trump's inauguration. The closely-watched race pitted Good against Libertarian Alison Foxall and Republican James Buchanan, whose father Vern represents the area in Congress. The seat opened up last year when Republican Alex Miller resigned from the legislature citing her family and business as reasons. During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump won the district by just five points. But, overall, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the district by some 13,000 voters.

      Trump is getting owned.

    • Former U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides.

      Huddled in his newly opened office steps from the U.S. Capitol, Biden began a planning meeting for his new diplomacy centre by addressing the elephant in the room. He said he was keeping his 2020 options open, considering it a real possibility. He insisted he had made no decision, and didn't need to yet, according to five people who either attended the meeting or were briefed on it by those who did.

      Biden also expressed interest in bringing those in the room onto his team if he decides to launch a campaign. At the same time, he gave them an out: There would be no hard feelings if they decided they were content in their current roles outside of government, said the people, who demanded anonymity to discuss a private meeting.

    • To be absolutely clear, the FISA court did not rely solely on the Steele Dossier when granting the first warrant to wiretap Carter Page, and not at all when renewing it.

      But hypothetically had the court relied on it, there's nothing wrong with that. The dossier was adequately sourced and Steele conducted his due diligence.

      It's entirely possible that Trump is afraid of blackmail by the Russian government and actually had Russian hookers urinate on him. Entirely possible.

    • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that President Trump should back Mitt Romney's Senate bid, saying that the former presidential candidate bolsters the GOP's prospects of holding onto the seat currently held by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah.).

      "We don't want to lose the seat, and this looks like a pretty formidable candidate," McConnell told The New York Times in an interview on Friday.

      Asked whether Trump is comfortable with Romney's Senate bid, McConnell replied: "I can't imagine that he's not."

    • Trump wants credit for what he apparently believes is the sacrifice he has personally made in the wake of the Florida high school massacre: not golfing.

      The White House usually tries to hide Trump's weekend golf outings. He and his entourage have gone as far as to hide from the cameras, and in one instance apparently enlisted the services of a box truck to block reporters from capturing footage of him golfing.

      That all changed this weekend when suddenly, the White House was eager to go on the record about Trump's plans to not golf.
