McCabe says he ordered the obstruction of justice probe of President Trump

Soon after speaking to President Trump about the firing of his boss James Comey, Andrew McCabe, who became the bureau’s acting director, began obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations involving the president and his ties to Russia. In his first television interview since his own firing, McCabe tells 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley he wanted those inquiries to be documented and underway so they would be difficult to quash without raising scrutiny.

“I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion,” McCabe tells Pelley in the interview. “That were I removed quickly, or reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace.”—More…

Congress Reveals Details of Border ‘Compromise’ to Avoid Shutdown

The details of a Republican-Democrat border deal package includes about $1.3 billion for 55 miles of construction at the United States-Mexico border for “physical barrier” and $415 million in “humanitarian relief” for border crossers.

The bipartisan offer to President Trump falls short of the $5.7 billion that the White House requested in border wall funding, providing just $1.375 billion in total to construct about 55 miles of new physical barriers in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, sector of the southern border. The full text of the legislation can be read here. Section 230 discusses border construction funding — which appears to limit new construction to bollard fencing:—More…

H.R. 1 Is Nothing But a Power Grab Designed to Elect Democrats

House Resolution 1 should really be called the ‘Fill the Swamp Act.’ This crooked piece of legislation would mandate a colossal takeover of the state election process to empower big government liberals and corporate interests. So, of course, Democrats are trying to force it through.

It seems every year that passes more and more power is shifted away from the people and into the hands of a wealthy, elite few in Washington. These politicians and bureaucrats love micromanaging more and more of our everyday lives. From our roads and bridges, our firearms, our relationships with our doctors, our elementary schools, our farms and even our toilets, these freedom and federalism hating politicians cannot help themselves from interfering with Americans’ choices.—More…

Ted Cruz wants ‘El Chapo’ and drug lords to pay for border wall

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz thinks convicted Mexican drug cartel Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán should finance President Donald Trump’s long-promised border wall.

“America’s justice system prevailed today in convicting Joaquín Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo, on all 10 counts,” Cruz tweeted Tuesday shortly before the Sinaloa cartel boss was convicted on drug trafficking, weapons violations and money laundering charges in a federal courtroom in Brooklyn, N.Y. “U.S. prosecutors are seeking $14 billion in drug profits & other assets from El Chapo which should go towards funding our wall to #SecureTheBorder.”—More…

Voters Oppose Democrats’ Stance on Abortion

An overwhelming majority of Americans support congressional action to protect children born alive through failed abortions and oppose efforts to expand late-term abortions.

A new poll released by Susan B. Anthony List on Wednesday indicated that 77 percent of voters favor legislation mandating that children who survive failed abortions are given the same medical treatment as babies born prematurely. The poll, which surveyed 1,000 likely general election voters between Feb. 6-10, also found 62 percent opposed legislation allowing late-term abortions even up to the point of labor.—More…

Guatemala Intel Minister: Migrant Caravans Are ‘Well-Planned,’ Not Spontaneous

“This was not a spontaneous event. It was well-planned. It was well-organized,” Duarte, head of the Secretariat of Strategic Intelligence of Guatemala, said at an event hosted by the Center for a Free Secure Society at the National Press Club.

He said different intelligence, law enforcement, and military agencies found evidence that the October caravan from Honduras to the U.S. — which at one point contained about 40,000 migrants — was organized in advance.—More…

Andrew Cuomo Pleads For a Federal Handout and President Trump Tells Him To Frack Right Off

Yesterday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made a pilgrimage to the White House to beg President Trump for money. New York State has suddenly noticed a $2.3 billion deficit in its budget. The deficit is the result of a self-inflicted shotgun blast to the feet amplified by new caps on the amount of state and local taxes (called SALT) that are deductible from federal income tax.

Cuomo painfully admitted he would now need to cut the state budget as a result of the loss of wealthy residents. The top 1% of New York’s wage earners supply 46% of the income tax revenue. Target them, and some will seek out tax havens elsewhere. Cuomo, of course, looked to place the blame elsewhere.—More….

Dem Rep. Carson: Rep. Omar Not Antisemitic — ‘She Has Strong Support from the Jewish Com

Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” Rep. André Carson (D-IN) argued Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was not antisemitic despite her antisemitic tweets.

Carson said, “I think President Trump is speaking to his base, signaling to his base he’s with them. Ilhan is a good friend, like my little sister in many ways. She’s a genuine person. I believe her statement. I know who she is, she’s not anti-Semitic. She is a loving person. She has a wonderful world view. All of us said things we’ve had to walk back. That is the nature of being in politics. But going forward, there are talks right now. There are discussions. I think the whole controversy has opened up a different kind of dialogue between Muslims, Christians and Jewish brothers and sisters. So good things have come as a result.”—More….

Network Blackout of Investigation Finding Covington Kids Did Nothing Wrong

The liberal media took another massive blow on Wednesday after an independent investigation found that the high school students of Covington Catholic didn’t harass anyone last month at the Lincoln Memorial. Effectively proving that the liberal media reports about them were smears and lies, all three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and principal Spanish-language networks (Telemundo and Univision) omitted the findings from their evening reports.

Just before the 3:00 p.m. hour of CNN Newsroom began, host Brooke Baldwin came back from a commercial break with the news that was “just in.” “The students involved in that high profile encounter while attending last month’s March for Life rally in Washington have been exonerated,” she declared as if they were accused and on trial for an actual crime.—More…..

Twitter Sued for Banning Journalist for ‘Misgendering’ Transgender Users

Twitter wants to regulate the kind of speech that’s allowed on its platform. But there will be some backlash from those who are banned.

On February 11, Canadian feminist journalist Megan Murphy filed a lawsuit against Twitter.

Angry Americans Demand DNC Pay Back Money Spent On Russia Collusion Investigation

I can certainly appreciate that Americans are angry that their money was spent on this political fiasco, but good luck in getting that money unless you’re going to push for impeaching Democrats that were behind pushing the witch hunt.  Still, in less than 48 hours, nearly 100,000 people have signed a White House petition demanding the Democratic National Committee pay the $25 million it cost for criminal Robert Mueller to conduct a more than two-year investigation into Russian collusion that was premised on a phony, bought-and-paid-for Hillary Clinton dossier.

According to the petition:

The Democratic party has wasted time and the money of the American tax payer to conduct a witch hunt based on a phony dossier bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. As of December 2018 the cost was 25 million dollars. The Democratic party is complicit in this attack on the tax payer. Hillary Clinton should be indicted and if convicted all assets should be seized. All remaining cost for the Russia investigation, all money used to investigate, charge, and imprison Clinton and all of her co-conspirators should be paid by the Democratic National Convention.—More…

Former US counterintelligence agent allegedly spied on colleagues to help out Iran, indictment revea

An ex-counterintelligence agent who defected to Iran in 2013 helped the Islamic Republic in “targeting her former fellow agents” and exposed a Defense Department program considered one of the crown jewels of U.S. intelligence, according to an explosive indictment unsealed Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

An arrest warrant is now out for Monica Elfriede Witt, the 39-year-old former agent named in the grand jury indictment. The Justice Department says the Iranian government supplied her with housing and computer equipment so she could “disclose U.S. classified information” and conduct research on “personnel that she had known and worked with” during her time in the American intelligence community.—More…

Hillary Clinton Defends Late-Term Abortion: OK to Kill Those Babies Because It’s Just 12,000 a

Twice-failed presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton tweeted out a defense of a topic near to her heart Monday: late-term abortion.

In her tweet, Clinton highlighted the fact that “only about 1% of abortions happen later in pregnancy—almost always because a woman’s health or life is at risk, or the pregnancy is no longer viable.”—More…
