Instead, it was the other way around. The Grassley-Graham memo corroborates the claims in the Nunes memo: The Obama Justice Department and FBI used anonymously sourced, Clinton-campaign generated innuendo to convince the FISA court to issue surveillance warrants against Carter Page...

A new report by the New York Times reveals U.S. spies paid $100,000 to a “shadowy,” Russian promising dirt on President Trump, along with stolen cyber tools from the CIA and NSA.

ANOTHER LONGTIME COMEY AIDE LEAVING FBI - FOX NEWS

The longtime head of public affairs at the FBI - who was a confidant of former director James Comey - is planning to retire, Fox News has learned.

A notice went out this week for a retirement get-together for Michael Kortan scheduled for Feb. 15.

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 GDPNow forecast model showed on Monday.

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 GDPNow and the...

Part of the price paid by the Democrats to get out of the hole they dug for themselves when they forced the shutdown was the suspension of three onerous Obamacare taxes - the medical device tax, the tax on premium (Cadillac) health plans, and the health insurance (HIT) tax.

CORRUPTION UPDATE: AS FBI DIRECTOR, ROBERT MUELLER HELPED COVER UP FLORIDA 9/11 PROBE - JUDICIAL WATCH

Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress.

Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the story, publicly countering that...

TURKISH TROOPS ATTACK KURDISH ENCLAVE IN NORTHERN SYRIA - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Turkish troops and Syrian opposition forces attacked a Kurdish enclave in northern Syria on Sunday in their bid to drive a U.S.-allied Kurdish militia from the region.

A spokesman for the Kurdish fighters said the attack was repelled.

Turkey considers the Syrian Kurdish militia, known as the People's Protection Units, or YPG, a terror organization and a security threat because of its affiliation to Kurdish rebels fighting in southeastern Turkey.

The group controls Afrin, in Syria's northwestern Aleppo province, as well as a swath of territory...

U.S. UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS FALL TO 222,000, LOWEST IN 44 YEARS - U.S. NEWS

The number of Americans collecting unemployment benefits fell last week to the lowest level since Richard Nixon was president.

To gain power, totalitarian movements always portray themselves as victims. And while they are in the process of abusing, they cry in front of the world posing as the abused. They stage “hate-crime” attacks against themselves because hate crimes are their political and cultural capital. When those hate-crimes don’t exist, they must be invented.

We are witnessing precisely this phenomenon at this very moment in regards to the myriad hoax “hate-crimes” that anti-Trump forces are manufacturing out of thin air and blaming on Trump supporters. The media are bolstering the entire hallucination process, with CNN leading the way.

Central to the whole narrative is the supposed “Islamophobic” anti-Muslim crime-wave sweeping the nation. The rumors spread and the media...

PENTAGON PLANNING TWO NEW NUCLEAR WEAPONS - THE HILL

The U.S. is planning to develop two new nuclear weapons, including a "low yield" warhead, according to a Wall Street Journal report. That low-yield warhead would be used with the Trident missile, a rocket deployed on U.S. Navy submarines, according to the Journal.

The Pentagon is also planning to develop a new nuclear-armed cruise missile that would also be deployed at sea. That plan would reintroduce a system to the U.S. nuclear arsenal that was retired in 2010. The recommendations for the new weapons are laid out in the Pentagon’s Nuclear Posture Review, which was commissioned last year by President Trump.

HuffPost published an unclassified draft copy of the review last week, though the Pentagon has said...

WHY CALIFORNIA IS THE 'POVERTY CAPITAL OF AMERICA' - RICK MORAN

An excellent op-ed in the L.A. Times today by Kerry Jackson is on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America."

According to the Census Bureau, one out of five California residents is poor. This despite the state's per capita GDP rising twice as fast in the last five years as the national average. From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation's welfare recipients.

Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for...

According to experts familiar with the transaction, the uranium could be enriched to weapons-grade sufficient for the production of at least 10 nuclear bombs.

JUST SHY OF HER 100TH BIRTHDAY, MISSISSIPPII WOMAN BAGS DEER - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

A 99-year-old hunter in Mississippi wants to know why people are making a big fuss about her recent kill. It was a doe after all, not a prized buck.

FAKE NEWS UPDATE: MICHAEL WOLFF ADMITS THAT NOT EVERYTHING IN HIS TRUMP BOOK IS TRUE - WASHINGTON TIMES

Well, well, well, turns out even Michael Wolff, author of the “Fire and Fury” book that has sparked such national discussion about the Donald Trump White House, admits that not everything he wrote is true.

In his prologue, Wolff writes, as Business Insider noted: “Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are boldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book.”

In other words: Take with a grain of salt, Dear Reader, what you read. So why did Wolff include...

As the first year of the Trump administration comes to a close, one can't help but look back on how allegations of “Russian collusion” dominated the headlines of almost every news agency.

TRUMP SEEKS TO OPEN MOST U.S. COASTAL WATERS TO NEW OIL DRILLING - BLOOMBERG

The Trump administration is proposing to open almost all U.S. coastal waters to oil drilling, including those off California and Florida where activists have fought for decades to spare delicate ecosystems from oil spills.

Instead, the Interior Department is proposing 47 possible auctions of drilling rights in more than 90 percent of the U.S. outer continental shelf, including Pacific waters near California and Atlantic waters near Maine. The draft plan opens the door to...
