    Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), the only person alive who spoke during Dr. Martin Luther King’s historic March on Washington, was verbally taunted on a D.C. to Atlanta flight over the weekend. The civil rights legend shared his story on Senator Cory Booker’s new podcast “Lift Every Voice.” “I’m walking down the aisle, and the gentleman said as loud as he could, ‘Trump!” recounted Lewis. “The 77-year-old has been a vocal critic of Trump, refusing to attend the Civil Rights Museum opening in Mississippi if Trump was in attendance and Trump’s State of the Union speech scheduled for January 30.

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney took to Twitter on Monday morning to attack President Donald Trump, using the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to suggest that Trump is a racist. Romney wrote: “The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.'”
  • Fusion GPS Founder Retracts Claim of FBI Source Inside Trump Campaign

    01/14/2018 3:00:23 PM PST · by Strac6 · 48 replies
    During his testimony before Congress in August, Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson said that the FBI had a source inside the Trump campaign who gave credence to the infamous dossier the company created for the Democrats. He repeated the claim in a New York Times op-ed on January 2. But today, Fusion GPS is retracting that statement, saying that Simpson "mischaracterized" the source. Washington Times: Then suddenly, as quick as the headlines went up, some one close to Fusion was waving off reporters. Mr. Simpsonhad “mischaracterized” the source. It was not some one on the Trump inside, but apparently an...

    CNN) President Donald Trump is "in excellent health," White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, said following his physical Friday. But it's not clear whether any mental health tests were conducted, despite urging from mental health professionals. Jackson received an urgent letter from dozens of doctors and health professionals Thursday urging him to perform basic mental health tests on the President. While reviews of the past five presidents' physical exams show only a brief mention of mental health and none of the records includes a readout of the mental health tests, this letter points out that mental evaluations are routine during...

    ...There’s a much simpler way to explain how the golden shower incident wound up in the dossier. Emin Agalarov or his father Aras gave the story about the prostitutes to the same emissary they were sending to Trump Tower—Natalia Veselnitskaya. She gave it directly to Simpson. Someone embellished it along the line. [....] Simpson’s testimony shows that the Senate Judiciary Committee is alert to the likelihood that information on Fusion’s two Russia-related jobs may have flowed in both directions. “Was there any overlap,” asked one investigator, “between the employees from Fusion who were working on the Trump investigation and the...

    President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting. “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday. The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens....

    Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has added a veteran cyber prosecutor to his team, filling what has long been a gap in expertise and potentially signaling a recent focus on computer crimes. Ryan K. Dickey was assigned to Mueller’s team in early November from the Justice Department’s computer crime and intellectual-property section, said a spokesman for the special counsel’s office. He joined 16 other lawyers who are highly respected by their peers but who have come under fire from Republicans wary of some of their political contributions to Democrats. Dickey’s addition is particularly notable because he is the first...

    Media billionaire Oprah Winfrey has better odds of being elected President in 2020 that former Vice President Joe Biden. BetOnline currently gives the star a 20 to 1 chance at making replacing Trump, whilst Biden is given odds of only 25 to 1 — the same chance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Neither Biden nor Oprah has formally committed to running, but both have made clear they’re interested. Oprah’s acceptance speech of the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the Golden Globes sparked widespread speculation that she may be gearing up for a pivot...

    A college football team staying in a Trump hotel for the Orange Bowl should be easy material for a progressive wit, if you could find a witty progressive. "After learning the University of Wisconsin football team will be staying at Trump National Doral Hotel in Miami, Florida in the days leading up to the Orange bowl, the Student Coalition for Progress issued a press release calling for an explanation from university officials," Sarah Godfrey wrote in The Badger Herald. "The group is 'disappointed' the team, band and alumni are staying in a hotel with the same name as the current...

    The word is getting out. People are slowing beginning to piece together the BIGGER STORY of what fundamentally lies behind the Obama administration’s 2016 use of FISA 702(16)(17) surveillance, and how an the intentional non-oversight of the Department of Justice National Security Division was used in the construct of the unlawful FBI surveillance and spying operation against presidential candidate Donald Trump. During a radio interview on WMAL legal analyst and former U.S. Attorney General for Washington DC, Joe DiGenova, specifically highlights the DOJ National Security Division head John P Carlin and his role in the 2016 FISA warrant.

    Jewish Press ^ | 6 January 2018
    Al Quds Al Arabi on Saturday cited reliable sources in Tehran who said Iranian authorities ordered the arrest of former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his visit to the city of Shiraz and that the arrest was made with the approval of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei after his remarks had been described as inciting unrest. The independent pan-Arab daily newspaper, published in London, learned that the authorities intended to impose house arrest on Ahmadinejad. Two weeks ago, on the Thursday that saw the start of anti-government protests in Iran, the former president, said in a speech to a crowd of residents...

    President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday to defend himself from claims he is mentally incompetent, writing that his past accomplishments make him not just smart, but a “genius” — and Hollywood, predictably, reacted with jokes and mockery. “Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence…..,” Trump began in a series of tweets Saturday morning. Now that Russian collusion, after one year of...

    One of the most entertaining "excerpts" circulated from Michael Wolff's explosive tell-all was a passage describing President Trump supposedly watching a “gorilla channel” for hours on end. The excerpt, of course, was a parody and wasn't actually from the “Fire and Fury” book. But it managed to fool plenty of Trump critics anyway, with an MSNBC contributor and others initially appearing to treat the passage as legit.

    President Donald J. Trump’s wall along the southern border will cost at least $18 billion, per a Congressional source first reported by The Wall Street Journal. But, President Trump insists that Mexico will pay for the wall and that Democrats will agree to it. According to The Wall Street Journal's source, the Department of Homeland Security has requested 316 miles of new fencing plus an additional 407 miles of reinforcing fencing to be built over the next decade, costing taxpayers $18 billion. According to NBC News, Democrats are already condemning the plan. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the minority whip,...

    My friends Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, opined on Thursday that the time has come for a new person to serve as attorney general. I disagree with their opinion. I believe Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the right man in the right place at the right time to restore respect in America for the Rule of Law. In fact, I assert that he is already making a positive difference. In measuring Sessions’ performance in office to date, it is important to remember two things: 1) the political climate he faced within the Department of Justice upon accepting...
