Over budget and behind schedule, the controversial infrastructure project is running out of money; William La Jeunesse reports from Los Angeles.
A 9-year-old girl unwittingly ate, and handed out to other classmates, THC-laced candy, school officials said.
The girl brought the candies to school last Thursday and said she could not see; another girl ate them and started to feel dizzy, Albuquerque School of Excellence Dean of Elementary School Students Kristy Del Curto told KRQE.
“We noticed the student who initially brought the edible to our school was acting strange. She started saying she couldn’t see,” Del Curto said.
Three students shared one gummy and the student who handed it out had three or four pieces, Del Curto said.
Paramedics were called and monitored the students, who eventually recovered.
The student who brought them to school did not know they were medicinal, THC-laced gummies, Del Curto said.
“As marijuana becomes legal in each state, it’s going to become more and more of an issue, I believe,” Del Curto said.
A Hong Kong architect has invented what he believed to be the solution of overcrowded cities by turning concrete water pipes into tiny homes.
The OPod Tube Housing system aims to re-purpose concrete tubes measuring just over eight feet in diameter, and turn them into 'micro-homes' with 100 square feet of living space.
It is the brainchild of architect James Law of James Law Cybertecture who designed the build as a possible solution to the lack of both space and affordable housing in Hong Kong.
With a population of 6,690 people per square kilometer in 2014, Hong Kong has one of the most competitive real estate markets in the world.
A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy,” according to an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents.
He says former FBI Director James Comey conducted a fake criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they “followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”
DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.”
In this highly detailed video interview, he holds up an unreported April 2017 99-page FISA court opinion that “describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff.”
DiGenova thinks Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike, the DNC’s private security firm, were among the redacted contractors of the FBI.
Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should go back to school for basic civics and learn how the government works, Monday on “America’s Newsroom.”
Fox News host Bill Hemmer questioned Mulvaney about the ongoing government shutdown. Mulvaney said it’s up to Congress, not President Donald Trump, to reopen the government.
“I heard your lead-in where Chuck Schumer said only the president can open this government,” Mulvaney said. “Mr. Schumer needs to go back and take basic civics. It is up to the Congress to fund the government. Not the president of the United States. Only the Democrats in the Senate right now hold the keys to opening the government.”
Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that while she believes the #MeToo movement is "a good thing," people need "to be a little bit careful" about how they respond to it.
"Let's not turn women into snowflakes. Let's not infantilize women," Rice insisted during an interview with CNN's David Axelrod on "The Axe Files," which airs at 7 ET Saturday night.
Rice said she didn't want "to get to a place that men start to think, 'Well, maybe it's just better not to have women around.' I've heard a little bit of that. And it, it worries me," she told Axelrod.
Following last year's downfall of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein after sexual harassment and assault allegations, people have begun sharing their stories of sexual harassment and abuse, using the hashtag #MeToo.
Rice, the first African-American woman to become secretary of state, was careful to emphasize that she didn't want to "belittle" women who have shared their stories of sexual harassment "because we're all different."
Asked by Axelrod if she had ever been a victim of harassment, Rice said she'd "certainly had people say inappropriate things."
"I've certainly had people suggest that maybe we should just go out -- and you know -- and situations in which it was somebody more senior than I," she said.
"I've never had anyone do anything that I would consider assault. But I don't know a woman alive who hasn't had somebody say or do something that was inappropriate at best and aggressive at worst," she added.
It appears as if MSNBC is slowly realizing that most of America including those groups they think are siding with Democrats, actually don't.
Watch as more and more women begin to wake up and realize that the Democratic institution is attempting to destroy America from within by using movements such as the current feminist movement in order to take over the country.
These women are not buying it.
MSNBC isn't even attempting to hide their complete and utter lack of control when it comes to anything anti-Trump.
The liberal hack said even produced a video attempting to mock the president for a border wall that is overwhelmingly backed by the American public, especially among legal immigrants who have come from Latin American countries.
Voters in rural Pennsylvania were crucial to electing President Trump. A year after he took office, they are mostly pleased with how Trump has executed his presidency.
Voters in southwest Pennsylvania were among the most crucial in President Trump's rise to the presidency. It's coal country, and the president's pledge to boost that industry was a big part of it. But his background as a businessman who is not afraid to insult or throw a verbal punch also helped.
MSNBC aired another Joe Scarborough single Monday morning, set it to footage of the Women’s March that occurred over the weekend, and effectively kicked off the week in the most awkward way possible.
“And speaking of volatile times and protest movements, we go to break with some of the powerful images from over the weekend as millions of Americans gathered in cities and streets across the nation for the 2018 Women’s March,” Mika said as she introduced the segment with Joe on the screen.
MSNBC then played Scarborough’s newest single, “Stand,” accompanied awkwardly by nostalgic video and photos of the weekend’s Women’s March.
The song is politically motivated, and in his own words, Scarborough said the inspiration for the song comes from “the Women’s March and dedicated to those who #Resist.”
Scarborough did not create a song for the March for Life, which occurred on Friday in Washington, D.C. and attracted thousands of pro-life men and women who marched from the mall to the Supreme court. The March for Life began in 1973 to protest the Roe v. Wade Supreme court case and has happened every year since.
The Women’s March began last year to protest the Trump administration, and this year it has morphed into a “power to the polls” movement. Ironically, even though the Women’s March supposedly stands for female empowerment amid the slew of other factional issues, Linda Sarsour, a figurehead of the Women’s March, was accused of ignoring alleged workplace sexual assault.
Far left Democrat, Dick Durbin, gets repeatedly fact checked even at liberal controlled CNN after repeatedly making complete and utterly false statements about why they are government was currently shut down after Democrats refused to work with Republicans to avoid it.
Ironically, this is one of the same liberals who refuse to work with Republicans during the Obama administration's rule, and then turned around and also blamed Republicans for shutting down the government. Despite Democrats being unable to get enough votes on even their side.
Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) insists there must be bipartisan negotiation over DACA in the spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. CNN's Erin Burnett reminds him of what Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate Minority Leader, said during the Obama administration.
Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday that a government shutdown would have a "terrible impact" on the military, which he said deserved the full support of the nation.
The government appears to be on the verge of a shutdown with Republicans and Democrats at an impasse over its funding amid a larger debate about the DACA program.
Asked if a shutdown would have serious ramifications on military operations after he made remarks about national security strategy in Washington, Mattis flatly responded, "Yes."
Mattis said a number of operations would be disrupted by a shutdown, and 50 percent of his civilian workforce would be furloughed.
"That's going to impact our contracting. It'll impact obviously our medical facilities," Mattis said. "It's got a huge morale impact. How long can you keep good people around when something like this happens?"
President Donald Trump remarked Thursday that a shutdown would hurt the military most of all.
Mattis added that intelligence operations would stop, and training for the entire reserve force would also cease.
"You must understand the critical importance of our reserves. They're the only shock absorber we have," he said. "It's got a terrible impact."
"The value of the American military is grossly enhanced by the sense of the American model of government, of the people, by the people, for the people, can function and carry out its governmental responsibilities," he said.
Mattis, a retired general, said he didn't just serve in the Marine Corps but the "U.S." Marine Corps, and the military was accountable to the people and deserved its support.
"I just tell you that they deserve full support, and we have got to come to grips with this as a nation," he said.
WHITFIELD: "But then five Republicans voting against this from states where trump carried it. So, I mean, this isn’t a giant gamble, is it."
McGUIRE: "I think it is a huge gamble on the Democrat’s part. If you read The New York Times it is clear that Democrats are hoping in November people forget about the shutdown. They are gambling that people forget about this and they feel like they need to do this right now to appease their base. But hopefully by November other voters in these red states will have forgotten about it and that shows where the leverage is here and that is on the Republican side."
Senate Democrats may be willing to gamble that the public will blame Republicans for a government shutdown. After all, the GOP controls the White House and both chambers of Congress.
But beyond the election year blame game, Democratic economist Jared Bernstein warns that a shutdown could still have longer-term political fallout that his party should consider:
“The more people believe the government is fundamentally dysfunctional, the more they’ll be OK with de-funding and shrinking it (cutting tax revenues), turning federal programs over to states (“block grants”), and generally accepting the R’s narrative of a feckless government sector that wastes your tax dollars. Why, they can’t even keep the lights on! This leaves me pretty wary of any short-term advantages from blaming the other side for the shutdown, should it occur.”
If nothing else, watching the Democrats tie themselves into knots over the potential government shutdown has been pretty entertaining. Dem shutdown messaging is so convoluted they're contradicting themselves in real-time:
Hoyer just now: "I believe we should stay here and do our work."
"What is your motion?"
Hoyer: I motion to adjourn.
You can't make this stuff up!
See, that’s what’s so great. You don’t have to make it up, because it’s real. Move over, Dianne Feinstein! Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer is going for the gold in the Self-Contradictory Olympics:
That’s pretty much how it went, yeah:
Hoyer: “I believe we ought to stay here and do our work [pause for cheers and applause]. And I believe we ought to vote to do so. And therefore, I will vote no.”
“Does the gentleman have a motion?”
Hoyer: “I have a motion … And the motion is the House do now adjourn.”
Jennifer Shutt: “The is the floor chart the House is voting on. At question is whether or not it violates House rules and/or decorum.” -- Drew McCoy: “The Democrats are claiming quoting Chuck Schumer on the floor violates the rules of decorum in the House. That's… an interesting stance.” -- That violates House decorum? For what it’s worth, the House voted, and the whiners went down in flames. -- Jennifer Shutt: “House voted 224-173 that everything is fine. Rep. Byrne is back on the floor speaking next to the chart. Every time he starts speaking Dems begin yelling and booing.” -- Yelling and booing? What was that about decorum? -- Cristina Marcos @cimarcos: “The House voted that Byrne's poster was in order. Byrne is now trying to resume his speech. But Democrats keep booing him.”
Stuart Varney: “I am royally annoyed. As a legal immigrant… my legal government is being shutdown in the interests of people who are here illegally.”
A CNN reporter admitted on Sunday that her network’s obsession with Russia is out of touch with most of the American public.
“I’m so interested to see how the Russia investigation affects things, because so far, out in these districts when you talk to people about Russia, and that’s all we talk about at CNN basically, they say they don’t care,” Maeve Reston, a national politics reporter at CNN, said on “Inside Politics.”
“It doesn’t have any effect on their lives.”
CNN, along with MSNBC, have focused heavily on the Russia investigations being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and three congressional committees.
Democratic lawmakers appear frequently on both networks to push the idea that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. The network also frequently interviews contributors and analysts who speculate about possible collusion, though none have offered proof that it actually occurred.
Reston also said on Sunday that in her interviews with voters, she has seen growing confidence in the economy during President Trump’s first year in office.
“You are starting to see that uneasiness about the economy sort of dissipate,” she said.
“Remember, even in 2016 when we went out to these swing states and talked to voters, there was still this fear that things were suddenly going to turn down again.”
“You don’t feel that as much anymore.”
A shocking video has emerged showing a trail of blood splattered on the floor of a shopping centre following a suspected stabbing.
The busy shopping centre has been closed off and two victims are in hospital following the incident.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: "We were called to reports of two men with stab wounds in The Mall, Luton at around 2.30pm today.
"A number of officers attended, along with the ambulance service and two men were taken to hospital.
"The Mall is currently closed while an investigation is ongoing.
"Anyone with any information, or anyone who was in the area at around 2.30pm and witnessed anything, is asked to call 101 quoting reference number 184 of 21 January."
Shocked residents have taken to social media following news of the incident.
One Facebook user wrote: "I dread to think what the world is going to be like in a couple of years.
"It's becoming the normal thing now, absolutely disgusting."
A third wrote: "For god's sake, knives, that's all you hear about now."
This is the heartbreaking moment a pensioner who lost his home and all his possessions in a devastating house fire sobbed as he clutched his pet cat while trying to take in the devastation.
Ali Mese, 83, accidentally burnt his house down after trying to light his wooden stove with gas.
In the news footage the pensioner can be seen weeping over the loss of his home but he clutches the cat who was rescued from the blaze.
Firefighters were able to save the cat after neighbours raised the alarm but the home, made out of wood, was destroyed.
Ali and his family escaped the fire in the Ordu Province in Turkey but only one cat, out of many owned by the family, escaped.

More than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies around the world help police YouTube for extremist content, ranging from so-called hate speech to terrorist recruiting videos.
All of them have confidentiality agreements barring Google, YouTube’s parent company, from revealing their participation to the public, a Google representative told The Daily Caller on Thursday.
A handful of groups, including the Anti-Defamation League and No Hate Speech, a European organization focused on combatting intolerance, have chosen to go public with their participation in the program, but the vast majority have stayed hidden behind the confidentiality agreements. Most groups in the program don’t want to be publicly associated with it, according to the Google spokesperson, who spoke only on background.
YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program goes back to 2012, but the program has exploded in size in recent years amid a Google push to increase regulation of the content on its platforms, which followed pressure from advertisers. Fifty of the 113 program members joined in 2017 as YouTube stepped up its content policing, YouTube public policy director Juniper Downs told a Senate committee on Wednesday.
The third-party groups work closely with YouTube’s employees to crack down on extremist content in two ways, Downs said and a Google spokesperson confirmed. First, they are equipped with digital tools allowing them to mass flag content for review by YouTube personnel. Second, the partner groups act as guides to YouTube’s content monitors and engineers who design the algorithms policing YouTube but may lack the expertise needed to tackle a given subject.
It’s not just terrorist videos that Google is censoring. Jordan B. Peterson, a professor known for opposing political correctness, had one of his videos blocked in 28 countries earlier this month. A note sent to Peterson’s account said YouTube had “received a legal complaint” about the video and decided to block it.
When men and women are elected to serve in either branch of Congress, they are supposed to be working on behalf of American citizens, focused on the issues that matter most to them, specifically for the residents and voters of the state and/or district that sent them to Washington.
But according to The Daily Wire, it would appear that Democrat Illinois Senator Dick Durbin is “focused” and “working” on behalf of an entirely different constituency than would be presumed by most people — namely illegal immigrants, and not American citizens or the voters within his own state.
The Senate Minority Whip, a top leader in the Democrat Party, was recently asked by a reporter to respond to allegations that he had lied about President Donald Trump making the now-infamous “s***hole” remark during a recent closed-door discussion in the White House about immigration reform efforts.
Now that the government is shutdown, Planet Earth risks ... an undetected asteroid strike!
That's the warning coming from CNN, anyway.
Reporter Tom Foreman on Friday hyped the threat posed by the government shutdown, citing a pause in some senior nutrition programs, a loss of scientific research, and NASA's asteroid monitoring system. Worse, an asteroid is coming February 4th, he said.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would back down its flu tracking program even as the nation faces the worst outbreak in years," Foreman said. "Some senior nutrition programs would be paused. 200,000 passport applications went unprocessed in 1995. Congress funds much of the scientific research done in this country. In 2013, that meant some experiments went on hold in 2013 and suffered costly losses of data."
"In space same year, for more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids," he added. "A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th."
Foreman acknowledged that most services people associate with the federal government — security services, Social Security, the post office, air traffic controllers — would all remain unaffected.
Here's a transcript from Foreman's report:
TAPPER: "It’s not the just government workers, if the shutdown happens. It will have a real cascading effect on the economy."
FOREMAN: "Yeah that's absolutely right. If there is no deal as these negotiations stand right now, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came as children, the so-called DREAMers would be thrust into a dangerous legal limbo. Some 9 million children covered by Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). But plenty of other Americans who have nothing to do with any of that could also feel the impact."
FOREMAN: "850,000 government workers locked out of their offices and left out of their paychecks. That’s what happened when the government shut down in 2013 and it would likely be the same this time. Including many who don’t make much."
THOMPSON: "I have a child and I want to make sure she eats and I want to eat. It is important that this gets done."
FOREMAN: "Roughly 1.9 million government workers would be considered essential and stay on the job. Air traffic controllers, security officers, food inspectors, prison guards, Social Security checks would go out. The post office would be open. But at a steep price to many workers."
MULVANEY: "The military will still go to work. They will not get paid. The border will still be patrolled. They will not get paid."
FOREMAN: "Meanwhile many services would be stopped or delayed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would back down its flu tracking program even as the nation faces the worst outbreak in years. Some senior nutrition programs would be paused. 200,000 passport applications went unprocessed in 1995. Congress funds much of the scientific research done in this country. In 2013, that meant some experiments went on hold in 2013 and suffered costly losses of data. In space same year, for more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids. A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th.
"As for the 417 national parks, the administration wants to keep limited access wherever possible, but service would be reduced and 19 of the Smithsonian’s museums would shut their doors." [END REPORT] FOREMAN: "The Smithsonian is trying on keep the doors open for the weekend. The current estimate of shutting down the government would cost taxpayers $6 billion a week. Jake?"
Forces entered the country's Afrin province today just 24 hours after pounding the region with airstrikes.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim reportedly said they are targeting US-backed Kurdish fighters.
Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armoured vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might.
But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back.
YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said "all the Turkish military's ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat."
A statement from the militia said: "Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender... we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the attacks."
Turkey has claimed the massive movement of military hardware into the country is simply to create a 30km-deep "safe zone" in the north of the country.
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall that companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state.
A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento, and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle-class families.
PELOSI: "The challenges that I see is that there are those, it has been reported to me, there are those on the Republican side who have some unease in increasing the domestic budget because they know that they already had a big increase in the deficit in the tax bill and are reluctant to add any more investments for fear it would increase the education, fear it would increase the deficit. However, these investments in research and development, in really bring money to the ref so they help decrease it. In fact, I think most economists will tell you that nothing brings more money to the treasury than the investments in education, early childhood, K through 12, higher education, post grad, lifetime learning for our workers. In that spirit of saying you want more in defense, we're respectful of that, we need more in domestic, hopefully you'll be respectful of that."
CABRERA: "Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can't have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunez memo, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, that he's put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us what exactly is it?"
SCHIFF: "It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge. They've not even read. So they don't know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they've made common cause once again with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It's in a redux of the campaign. We have assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hash tag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what's driving this. And that is --"
CABRERA: "Why not allow peel to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it's useful information or not?"
SCHIFF: "Well, because the American people unfortunately don't have the underlying materials and therefore they can't see how distorted and misleading this document is. The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that's a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it's a disservice to the country."
Liberal comedian and failed Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore made several snide comments about conservatives as he not only cracked that former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was "murdered by a pillow," but he poked fun at the 13 children who were infamously held prisoner and abused by their parents as he likened them to Republicans held hostage by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as "that creepy white couple." He also suggested that those who opposed Martin Luther King Jr. and ultimately murdered him were of the same ilk as Fox News and Republicans as host Bill Maher wondered how they would treat Dr. King if he were alive today.
At about 10:18 p.m. ET, Maher accused Republicans -- also lumping in Wal-Mart -- of lying to bolster President Donald Trump, referring to it as a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Wilmore then jumped in with a tasteless joke: "It's fascinating, but he's like people are scared to leave, like Trump and Pence are those -- that creepy white couple and Republicans are those 13 kids or something, you know." Trying to preempt negative reaction, he then tried to claim: "I'm not making fun of them." A bit later, Wilmore complained that Democrats do not "play hardball" like Republicans, and made a joke about Scalia's death: "Well, remember, Mitch McConnell -- Judge Scalia was murdered by that pillow like a -- for a whole year, he was dead. Mitch McConnell held out for a whole year for Gorsuch, That's playing hardball."
This is not the first time former Justice Scalia's death has been exploited for laughs on the Real Time show, as host Maher joked about it on his show in February 2016 the week after Scalia's passing. Returning to Friday's show, Maher then brought up Martin Luther King Day and mocked Republicans for praising the slain civil rights leader: "Whenever this holiday happens, all of the Republicans, they talk in such glowing terms, Dr. King, and they're gonna march with him -- what would they be saying about him on Fox News if he was alive?" Wilmore tried to blame Fox News retroactively for King assassination as he responded with more vitriol: "We saw how they treated him when he was alive, which is why he's not alive right now."
A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy,” according to an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.

That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”
DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.” In this highly detailed video interview, he holds up an unreported April 2017 99-page FISA court opinion that “describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff.” DiGenova thinks Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike, the DNC’s private security firm, were among the redacted contractors of the FBI.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, who knows who the redacted contractors were, may release more information. Was Fusion GPS pitching and funding journalists to run smear and propaganda campaigns for the Democrats? DiGenova says journalists were definitely paid by Fusion GPS. If it is true, he says, “it’s the complete antithesis of American journalism and the first amendment.” -- “Law enforcement is being corrupted and media is being bought,” portends badly he says. Noting the elite media’s supposed outrage about governmental power and institutions during Watergate, diGenova says “the only thing the American journalism community seems to care about now is destroying Donald Trump.”
In the interview, diGenova discusses the heroism of NSA Admiral Mike Rogers who briefed Trump when he was president-elect, on Nov. 17, 2016 about the controversial governmental surveillance. This resulted, he says, in Trump’s presidential transition being moving out of Trump Tower to Bedminster, N.J., until it could be debugged. The litigator also discusses the Uranium One scandal, the “tainted” Mueller special counsel investigation and the heroism of Nunes, who is under intense pressure from a united Democrat front. DiGenova has no doubt that if Democrats gain control in November, there will be an effort to impeachTrump. The Democrats are trying to delay any efforts by Republicans to find the truth. “It’s important for the House to complete its work now,” he says.
The head of a security company that worked on the set of the Netflix’s “House of Cards” accused disgraced Hollywood star Kevin Spacey of racism, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.
Earl Blue, the head of VIP Protective Service and Navy veteran, told the Mail exclusively that Spacey would refuse to acknowledge the black team members and made racist remarks.
Blue said Spacey was overheard by some of his employees telling a member of his personal security team, “I don't want n-----s watching my trailer,” referring to the Netflix show in which he played the lead role, Frank Underwood.
Blue, 51, cited “confidentiality” as the reason why he waited four years to come forward, but told the paper it came “to the point where people are being harmed, enough is enough.”
