  • Ex-CIA Director Hayden: Russia election meddling was 'most successful covert operation in history'

    Michael Hayden, a former director of the NSA and the CIA, on Friday called Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election the "most successful covert influence operation in history." "Frankly, [the Russian meddling] is the most successful covert operation in history," Hayden told a national security panel in response to a question from moderator Yahoo News Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff. Hayden said the original cyberattack on the Democratic National Committee was not that surprising -- and even from an intelligence perspective, impressive. "I just have to admit as a former director of NSA, [Russia's hack and theft of email]...

    Controversial Kremlin-connected energy firm Joule Unlimited, which received millions from a Vladimir Putin-connected Russian government fund and counted former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as a executive board member, has collapsed, according to the firm’s former chief executive. “The investors walked away,” former Joule Unlimited CEO Brian Baynes told The Digest, a biofuel publication. First revealed in research from Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer, Podesta joined the executive board of Joule Unlimited Technologies — a Boston, Massachusetts-based firm that received $35 million from the Russian government while Clinton served as secretary of...

    A Muslim candidate for the U.S. Senate in Arizona is being bombarded on her Facebook page by hateful attacks on her faith. Now Democrat Deedra Abboud is getting support from what might seem to be an unlikely place: Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, the man whose job she wants. Abboud, an attorney and activist, is believed to be the first Muslim statewide candidate in Arizona history.
  • Remember that Mitch McConnell got all these moderates (that is, liberals) elected

    Remember the primaries of 2014?? This is why they worked so hard to get the most liberal nominees possible. Murkowski and Collins were lost causes (and remember that the Republican Establishment supported Murkowski over the REPUBLICAN NOMINEE in 2010). Right behind Shelley Moore Capito in her liberalism are Thad Cochrane, Orrin Hatch, Johnny Isakson, Thom Tillis, Dean Heller, Rob Portman, etc. If Kelly Ayotte and Mark Kirk hadn't been defeated last November, they'd be standing with Collins and Murkowski and Capito too. Mitch McConnell populated his caucus with like-minded liberals, who have been determined to thwart ANY conservative idea, momentum,...

    You scoff now, but you’ll feel differently in 2019 when Trump and McConnell enact sweeping entitlement reform with the barest majority. Deciding votes: Senator Jenner of California and Senator Rock of Michigan.I can’t decide if Jenner would be better off running for the House than for Senate or if a statewide run is realistically her only play. Fun fact: In the past 25 years, only one Republican has topped so much as 43 percent in a Senate race in California. That was Arianna Huffington’s husband, Michael, who in 1994 spent the most money on a non-presidential race in American...

    Democrat strategist James Carville sounded the alarm recently about the Democrat Party saying that “no one” is in charge and that he is not optimistic about the Democrats taking back the Senate in 2018.

    Despite the massive media attention given to the claim that Russia attempted to influence last year’s election, the greatest threat to American democracy is vote fraud at home. Counties across the country have more people registered to vote than they have residents eligible to do so. Some jurisdictions have on their rolls voters who’ve reached their 200th birthday and beyond. Thousands of non-citizens have been found to be registered to vote and across the nation that number may well reach into the millions. No wonder President Donald Trump established the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, on which I serve....

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has declined a proposal by Democrat Commissioner Ellen Weintraub to undertake new rulemaking regarding alleged foreign influence in the 2016 election to target conservative media including the Drudge Report and Breitbart News, stating it “cannot support proposals that would burden the free speech rights of American citizens based on incomplete information about foreign activities in the 2016 election.” The FEC has declined to consider new rulemaking over alleged foreign influence in the 2016 presidential election that could target conservative media including InfoWars and Breitbart News. In a statement released by Vice Chair Caroline Hunter and...

    Since early June, when voters in Georgia’s sixth congressional district rubbed yet more salt in their 2016 election wounds, Democratic pols and sages have been pondering why, as Ohio congressman Tim Ryan put it, “our brand is worse than Trump.” That’s a low bar, given the president’s nearly subterranean approval ratings, but so far the blue party has mostly been turning to an inside-the-box set of policy and political memes: jobs programs, talk of a mutiny against House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and better marketing — or, in Ryan’s words, “branding” — of the Democratic message. What’s missing from this...

    Left-wing organizations spending millions to halt effort to ensure the integrity of U.S. elections President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission announced late Monday it’s temporarily suspending its collection of voter data from states following a lawsuit by the Electronic Privacy Information Center. The Electronic Privacy Information Center had asked for a temporary restraining order in its July 3 suit, saying the commission should have had a plan to protect the data on individual voters before it set about collecting it from the state. But there’s more to the story. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is headed by an attorney...

    The imbroglio concerning Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer absorbed much of the U.S. media audience's attention on Tuesday. But an FBI document dump is a heady reminder that the Trump campaign was not the only one with email problems. The FBI's release of 42 pages of highly redacted documents provides a flashback to the torrid days of Hillary's email fever, when the Democratic presidential candidate was routinely getting hammered — or rather literally, the same can be said of her Blackberrys, which were destroyed by order of campaign adviser Huma Abedin.

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is looking to target right-wing media outlets under the guise that they could’ve helped Russia interfere into our presidential election, reported The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard Tuesday. The commission will decide at this Thursday’s meeting whether or not to investigate websites like the Drudge Report, Breitbart and others on the right for violating election spending rules by allowing advertising on their Facebook pages by Russian entities. The call for investigation was spearheaded by the FEC’s Democrat commissioner, Ellen L. Weintraub, who has been trying to accomplish this for months. In May, she told Politico, “I...

    But Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort’s lone meeting with the Russian lawyer pales when compared to the coordination between Clinton allies and Ukrainian government officials who hoped to see Clinton win the 2016 election. A veteran DNC operative who previously worked in the Clinton White House, Alexandra Chalupa, worked with Ukrainian government officials and journalists from both Ukraine and America to dig up Russia-related opposition research on Trump and Manafort. She also shared her anti-Trump research with both the DNC and the Clinton campaign, according to the Politico report. Chalupa met with Ukrainian ambassador Valeriy Chaly and one of his aides, Oksara Shulyar, at...

    But would politically neutral redistricting in itself yield significantly more competitive and less polarized politics? Would it ensure greater political diversity and increase the legitimacy of Congress? The answer is no. Regardless of how you slice the map, the vast majority of Americans will live in so-called landslide districts, in which either Republicans or Democrats win by overwhelming margins. Today’s voters rarely split their tickets and are self-sorting such that the median county in the 2016 presidential race was won by more than 40 percentage points — triple the median margins in the 1990s. Step 1 is to elect House...

    After being removed twice for refusing to abide by federal court rulings in defense of the posting of the Ten Commandments in public areas, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is now the leading candidate – as seen in internal polling – to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vacated United States Senate seat. According to Politico Pro’s Daniel Strauss,fellow candidate – and current member of Congress – Mo Brooks’ internal polling indicates that Moore is leading all competitors with 31 percent, with Sen. Luther Strange in second at 23 percent and Brooks trailing closely behind in third with 21percent, with...
