Trump Blasts Dems: ‘DACA Is Probably Dead’

President Donald Trump attacked Democratic lawmakers Sunday for failing so far to reach a compromise deal with Republicans on the future of the DACA program.

Trump has been embroiled in negotiations with Democrats for months over the Obama-era protections for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. Trump ended the program in September and told Congress if it wanted to keep the protections then it had to end chain migration, include funding for a border wall, and end the diversity visa lottery system.

Democrats have indicated they may use a failure to compromise on DACA as an opportunity to shut down the government on Jan 19.

The president also touted his belief that the U.S. needs a merit based immigration system as opposed to one largely centered around family ties and country of origin.

Leaky Schiff? Trump Accuses Democratic Lawmaker Of Leaking Details Of Russia Probe

President Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders both accused California Rep. Adam Schiff of selectively leaking details of the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation.

Trump put Schiff on blast during an interview with The Wall Street Journal in the Oval Office on Thursday morning.

“All I see of these Democrats, like Adam Schiff — it’s all he does, he’ll have a meeting, and then he’ll leave, and he’ll call up the meeting, and then I’ll have a meeting and then he’ll leave. He left meetings where people are being interviewed, and then all of a sudden they say a story about what’s going on inside the meetings,” Trump said.

“It’s probably illegal, what he’s doing.”

Sanders also took a dig at Schiff during the White House press briefing on Thursday afternoon.

“The only people that we’ve seen trying to influence the investigation are former Director Comey and Democrats in Congress — and that would include Senator Feinstein, Representative Schiff — who have both selectively leaked to the media witness interviews,” said Sanders.

7 Revelations From Fusion GPS Founder’s Senate Testimony

One of the biggest takeaways from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s Senate Judiciary Committee testimony is that he has no independent proof that the allegations made in the infamous Trump dossier are accurate.

An extensive review of Simpson’s 312-page Aug. 22 interview transcript shows that his strongest evidence for believing the dossier’s accuracy is that he trusts Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the 35-page document.

“Chris, as I say, has a sterling reputation as a person who doesn’t exaggerate, doesn’t make things up, doesn’t sell baloney,” Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal, told Senate investigators in the interview.

But when pressed for independent evidence to support the dossier’s allegations, Simpson demurred. He also refused to discuss dossier sources or to say whether he had vetted any of them.

But that’s not the only conclusion to be drawn from Simpson’s testimony, a transcript of which was released on Tuesday by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein against the wishes of her Republican colleagues.

Here are other major revelations from Simpson’s testimony.

DOJ Official Linked To Trump Dossier Leaves Another High-Level Post

A Justice Department official who was demoted last month after he was found to have links to the Trump dossier has left a second high-level position at the agency, The Daily Caller has confirmed.

At the beginning of last month, Bruce Ohr held two positions at DOJ: associate deputy attorney general and director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF).

Fox News first reported on Monday that Ohr will no longer lead OCDETF. A Justice Department spokeswoman confirmed Ohr’s separation from that division but did not say whether Ohr resigned or was removed from the position.

Ohr’s job as associate deputy attorney general put him just a few office doors down from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential campaign.

What Kissinger Meant By A ‘White House War’ Between Jews And Non-Jews

Henry Kissinger knows a few things about wars, about Jews, and about the White Houses. But his quip to journalist Michael Wolff on the subject, as quoted in Wolff’s bombshell new book about President Donald Trump and his circle, is setting some heads a-scratching.

“It is a war between the Jews and the non-Jews,” Kissinger, the former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, told Wolff of the Trump White House.

The full context of the quote is unclear, as the text of Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” is not publicly available as of this writing.

But based on a report in The Guardian, it appears Kissinger’s glib quip was an attempt to characterize the clash between former Trump chief advisor Steve Bannon on one side, and Jewish Trump family members Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on the other.

So what was Kissinger, who roles in U.S. interventions in Chile, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, among other nations, led to millions of deaths, getting at in his quote to Wolff?

Freedom Caucus Republicans Call For Jeff Sessions To Resign

Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows and member Rep. Jim Jordan are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign over Justice Department leaks to reporters.

Meadows and Jordans’ call is in response to The New York Times’ report over the weekend that insisted the FBI’s probe into Russia collusion was started over George Papadopolous’ drunken conversations and not the Steele dossier. The report relied on four anonymous intelligence officials.

“The alarming number of FBI agents and DOJ officials sharing information with reporters is in clear violation of the investigative standards that Americans expect and should demand,” Meadows and Jordan assert in an opinion piece for The Washington Examiner. “How many FBI agents and DOJ officials have illegally discussed aspects of an ongoing investigation with reporters? When will it stop?”

Meadows and Jordan say that ultimately the responsibility for such leaks falls on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and if Sessions can’t get the leaks under control then he needs to be replaced.

Manafort Lawsuit Will Likely Shut Down Deep State Mueller Investigation!

Today’s report on the filing of a suit against the “Deep State” DOJ, Rosenstein and Mueller by Paul Manafort is a HUGE story. Manafort’s suit is likely to shut down Mueller investigation!

No wonder the MSM came out with the Bannon – Trump story today. Whenever a huge story comes out about Criminal and Corrupt Mueller and Rosenstein and the Deep State led DOJ, another story is released by the MSM to change the subject in the media. Today the MSM talked about Breitbart’s Steve Bannon’s remarks about members of President Trump’s family. These remarks have not yet been substantiated. However, the much bigger story in the news is that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort sued the DOJ, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and is demanding the Mueller investigation be shut down!

We have reported for months on the many criminal and corrupt actions taken by numerous parties related to the Mueller investigation.  Mueller never should have taken on the job in the first place due to numerous conflicts.  He is best friends with fired leaker and former FBI Director James Comey.  He met with Comey shortly before Comey testified with Congress and for this alone he should have recused himself.  The team Mueller built to attack President Trump and have him removed is all Deep State attorneys and crooks. Mueller’s record in the past is scattered with actions that let the Clintons off Scott free on numerous occasions when they should have been put in jail.

We now know that the FBI had an investigation into the Clintons and moneys they received  from Russia in return for giving Russia 20% of all US uranium. Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial Uranium One deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin. The FBI approved the deal anyway.  We also know that Rosenstein and Mueller were the ones who allowed the Uranium One deal to go forward.  This was the real Russia collusion story involving the US government.

Feds Ask Judge For A New Trial Against The Bundys

Federal prosecutors are asking Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro for another chance at convicting Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy for crimes associated with an armed standoff with federal agents in 2014, E&E News reports.

Navarro ruled a mistrial against Bundy and three others, including his two sons, in December after prosecutors failed to turn over exculpatory evidence that favored the defendants’ case. Navarro is considering whether the case should be dismissed “with prejudice,” blocking a retrial.

The omissions do not amount to “flagrant misconduct,” prosecutors claim and are asking for another attempt at trying Bundy, according to E&E News.

“The Brady violations found by the court are regrettable and benefit no one,” Nevada’s Acting U.S. Attorney and lead prosecutor in the Bundy case Steven Myhre wrote in a legal brief obtained by The Oregonian. “But because the government neither flagrantly violated nor recklessly disregarded its obligations, the appropriate remedy for such violations is a new trial.”

Pinkerton – The Spring of Nations: 2018 Brings Echoes of Europe’s Populist-Nationalist Rebellions of 1848

Here’s a headline that a lot of people—especially among the entrenched elite—won’t want to see: “2017 Was the Year of False Promise in the Fight Against Populism: The populist wave seems like it may have crested. The data proves otherwise.” In other words, the populists are still on the march. Uh oh. That headline appeared in Foreign Policy magazine, a publication not on the top of many populist reading lists. The two authors, Yascha Mounk and Martin Eiermann, are both associated with the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change. Blair, as we all recall, was the prime minister of the United Kingdom for a decade; he was, and is, a devout apostle of globalism.  

So the co-authors come at their topic not to praise populism but, rather, to warn against it; as they write, it’s been “a scary couple of years,” what with Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. And while they take note of high-ranking observers who have argued that populism is ebbing—one such is the conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer, who opined in April, “The populist wave has crested, soon to abate”—they disagree with that conclusion. 

Indeed, just in October, the 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz was elected chancellor of Austria; he holds populist-nationalist views on immigration that can only be described as Trumpian. As the authors explain, 

Populism is now the predominant form of government in a huge, populous, and strategically crucial part of Central Europe. It is now possible to drive from the Baltic Sea all the way to the Aegean without once leaving a country ruled by a populist.

Trump Aide’s Drunken Conversation Sparked Russia Probe

A Trump campaign adviser’s drunken conversation with an Australian diplomat last year was one of the catalysts for the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

That’s according to a new report from The New York Times on Saturday.

According to the newspaper, Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in May 2016 that the Russian government had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Papadopoulos was with Downer, Australia’s top diplomat to the U.K., in an upscale London bar.

A month prior to that encounter, Papadopoulos claims he was told by a London-based associate named Joseph Mifsud that Russian government officials had obtained Clinton emails. It is unclear whether Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old energy consultant, told anyone in the Trump campaign about alleged Clinton dirt.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to the FBI about his encounters with Mifsud and at least two Russian nationals. As part of his plea deal, Papadopoulos agreed to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
