New York Times Hires Reporter Who Sent Stories To Clinton Staffers For Approval – Daily Caller
.

.
Politico’s Glenn Thrush, who was exposed in WikiLeaks emails sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers before publication, will be joining the New York Times to cover the White House, The Huffington Post reported Monday.

“We’re thrilled that Glenn Thrush is joining The Times,” Elisabeth Bumiller, The New York Times’ Washington bureau chief, told The Huffington Post. “He’s a premier political journalist, a master of breaking news and long-form story telling and a stellar addition to our White House team.”

While Bumiller described Thrush as a “premier political journalist,” in one email to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, Thrush chose to describe himself as a “hack.”

“No worries Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to Podesta in an April 2015 email…

10 Ways The CIA’s ‘Russian Hacking’ Story Is Left-Wing ‘Fake News’ – Breitbart

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) pledged to support a congressional investigation into whether Russian hacking affected the 2016 election. Republicans have nothing to fear from such an investigation, because they won the election fair and square.

No, Russia is not the friend that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spent several years pretending it was. But the idea that Russian hackers coronated Trump is only the latest left-wing opiate – after white supremacists and “fake news” – designed to dull the pain of electoral defeat, and postpone the reckoning that must occur if Democrats are to pose a significant threat as an opposition party at any time in the near future.

Here are just ten of the reasons the “Russian hacking” story is a sham – a left-wing twist on the red-baiting McCarthyism of the 1950s.

1. There is actually no new information leading the CIA to its conclusion. The New York Times reports: “The C.I.A.’s conclusion does not appear to be the product of specific new intelligence obtained since the election, several American officials, including some who had read the agency’s briefing, said on Sunday. Rather, it was an analysis of what many believe is overwhelming circumstantial evidence – evidence that others feel does not support firm judgments – that the Russians put a thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump, and got their desired outcome.” In other words, someone only decided after Trump won that it the accusation was worth making.

2. The “evidence” that the CIA has gathered is inconclusive. The FBI also disagrees with some of the CIA’s conclusions about Russia’s motives. “While lawmakers were seemingly united on the need to present a strong bipartisan response, the FBI and CIA gave lawmakers differing accounts on Russia’s motives, according to The Post,” The Hill reported on Sunday…

Hillary Pleads To Dismiss Benghazi Lawsuit – WorldNetDaily
.

.
Lawyers for twice-failed Oval Office aspirant Hillary Clinton have asked a federal court in Washington, D.C., to dismiss a lawsuit over her statements as secretary of state about the Benghazi terror attack that left four Americans dead.

The plaintiffs are arguing the case should to go trial because she doesn’t deserve special treatment as a member of the “political elite.”

Clinton narrowly averted a default judgment in the case earlier when a judge adopted claims that she wasn’t properly served.

Then she argued in court filings that the case should be dismissed, claiming the plaintiffs, Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, haven’t properly claimed they were injured…

29 Killed, 166 Wounded In Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts Near Istanbul Soccer Stadium – USA Politics Today

Twin attacks by a suicide bomber and a car bomber near an Istanbul soccer stadium Saturday night killed 29 people and wounded 166 others in the latest large-scale assault to traumatize a nation confronting an array of security threats.

The bombs targeted police officers, killing 27 of them along with two civilians, Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu told reporters early Sunday. He added that 10 people had been arrested in connection with the “terrorist attack.”

The civilian death toll was lower because fans had already left the newly built Vodafone Arena Stadium after the soccer match when the blasts occurred. Witnesses also heard gunfire after the explosions.

“We have once again witnessed tonight in Istanbul the ugly face of terror which tramples on every value and decency,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a statement.

The first bomb went off just outside the facility known popularly as Besiktas Stadium after the local team and neighborhood. The second blast that came moments later was attributed by authorities to a suicide bomber.

Police cordoned off the area as smoke rose from behind the stadium and ambulances began ferrying the wounded to hospitals. Glass from the blown-out windows of nearby buildings littered the pavement.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. This year, Istanbul has witnessed a spate of attacks attributed by authorities to the Islamic State group or claimed by Kurdish militants…

Uncle Joe: Hillary Never Got The Chance To Speak To White, Middle Class Voters – American Mirror
.

.
A four-month general election – and the 12 months before that – wasn’t enough time to connect with white, middle-class voters, according to Joe Biden.

The vice president appeared on CNN on Sunday and faulted Hillary Clinton’s strategy and inability to connect and “respect” workers impacted by globalism.

He told Jake Tapper that he recognized the Democrats’ shift away from economic issues because, as he put it, “we got the car out of the ditch and onto the road and runnin’,” and therefore focused on other issues.

He said solutions to helping people who have been “left behind” wasn’t a “central part of the campaign going forward.”

“We’ve got to speak to those people,” Biden continued…

Douchebag Heckles Kids At Texas Mall, Yells ‘Santa Claus Does Not Exist’ – Dallas Morning News

A Texas pastor went to a mall in Amarillo on Saturday and heckled a group of children and their parents waiting in line to meet Santa Claus, letting them know that they were really just going to meet a “man in a suit” and that Santa Claus does not exist.

The stunt at the Amarillo mall appears to be the latest in a string of similar acts by 56-year-old David Grisham, a leader of the religious fundamentalist group “Repent Amarillo,” whose mission is to “preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and wage spiritual warfare on the demonic realm,” according to its Facebook page.

He’s used similar aggressive preaching methods in the past. Grisham previously made headlines when he tried to start a boycott against the city of Houston after Annise Parker, an open lesbian, was elected mayor and an abortion clinic was built in the city.

He also tried to publicly burn a copy of the Quran in Sam Houston Park in Amarillo in 2010, but was foiled by a shirtless skateboarder named Jacob Isom, who swiped the Quran from him at the last moment and told him, “Dude, you have no Quran!”

Grisham never imagined himself as a street preacher, much less one who inspired so much animosity in people. In fact, he was an atheist for the majority of his life after his father died in a plane crash.

But then, in his early 40s, he reunited with his first love, Tracy, and things began to fall into place. He watched M. Night Shyamalan’s movie “Signs” and had an epiphany. Everything in his life was foretold…

Texas Muslim Pleads Guilty To Setting Fire To His Own Mosque – Breitbart
.

.
The Muslim charged with arson of his own mosque on Christmas Day 2015 has pleaded guilty to felony arson in a Harris County (Houston) district court and was sentenced to prison.

The charging instrument stated that Gary Nathaniel Moore started a fire with the intent to destroy and damage a place of worship – the Savoy Masjid Mosque in Houston. Moore said he attended the mosque every day up to five times a day for five years. The Houston Fire Department (HFD) responded to the fire about 2:47 p.m. on Christmas Day.

Breitbart News reported that “up in smoke is the DC Media’s hoped-for anti-GOP Narrative. Before any facts were known, numerous DC Media outlets immediately exploited the tragedy to place the blame on Donald Trump.” As reported by Breitbart Texas, Breitbart News accurately predicted that the DC media would lose interest in the story “Now that a devout Muslim has been charged.”…

The Democrats’ Nauseating Putin Hypocrisy – Roger L. Simon

The degree to which the Democrats have changed their tune on Vladimir Putin almost on a proverbial dime is either black comic or nauseating or both, depending on how you want to look at it. Whatever it is, it is a extremely obvious example of how party politics is conducted in our era (possibly always).

If your side does it, it’s diplomatic genius bound to yield peace in our time. If the other side does the exact same thing, it’s a horrendous mistake bordering on treason likely to cause a national calamity, if not global Armageddon.

If there were any decent, even semi-even-handed political science departments left in our country (okay, maybe there are one or two), what we might call the Democrats’ “Great Putin Flip Flop” would be a textbook case for classroom discussion.

Let’s start at the beginning, March 2009, but a few weeks after the first inauguration of Barack Obama, when a smiling Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov the red “reset” button, signaling the arrival of a supposed era of peace between the two countries. The new administration was greeted with hosannas for their great symbolism from their loyal claque at the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, et al., who were oblivious, needless to say, that the word “peregruzka” printed in Cyrillic on the button, thought to mean “reset” in Russian by the linguistic geniuses in our State Department, was actually the word for “overload.”

No wonder Lavrov has such a quizzical look on his face in the all the photos…

Pennsylvania ‘Santa’ Pays Off Nearly $50,000 In Other People’s Layaway Items At Walmart – UPI
.

.
A “Secret Santa” helped nearly 200 shoppers at a Pennsylvania Walmart have a happy Christmas by paying off all of the store’s layaway items.

Ryan Kennedy, manager of the Walmart store in Everett, said he received a call from a mysterious person identified only as “Santa B” who offered to pay off all $46,265.59 worth of layaway items.

“It was complete disbelief,” he told CNN. “It was definitely a great gesture. I was completely shocked.”

A few days after the initial call a woman delivered a check to the store and Kennedy began notifying the 194 customers with layaway accounts their balances had been paid.

“Some individuals were just brought to tears when they were notified about it,” Kennedy said…

Republican John Kennedy Wins Louisiana Runoff Election To Become Newest Member Of U.S. Senate – Breitbart

Republican John Kennedy has been declared the winner of Louisiana’s runoff election for the U.S. Senate, defeating Democrat Foster Campbell and thwarting one of the last opportunities in 2016 for Democrats to gain a seat in the upper chamber.

Kennedy’s win on Saturday night, the first GOP win since Trump’s election, gives Republicans a 52 seat majority in the U.S. Senate, making it that much harder for Democrats to make any headway in Washington.

The stakes were high enough for President-elect Donald Trump to campaign arm-in-arm with Kennedy at a rally last week in Baton Rouge.

Trump told voters how important it was to get Kennedy to Washington, noting that it is “really close” in the Senate. “We need John in Washington, not only for the vote, but for leadership and everything,” Trump said.

Days before Trump’s stop in Baton Rouge, Vice President-elect Mike Pence also hit the campaign trail for Kennedy.

Kennedy’s Democrat opponent, Foster Campbell, clearly felt Trump’s popularity in the Pelican State as he generally refrained from too many direct attacks on Trump during his campaign. Campbell even ran campaign ads promising he would work with Trump while also insisting he would have the “courage” to oppose him when necessary. But it wasn’t enough to stave off yet another GOP win for 2016.

Seeing Campbell’s campaign as a last ditch effort, Democrats and liberal advocacy groups poured money into the campaign, giving Campbell a one million-dollar campaign fund advantage over Kennedy…

Julian Assange Confirms Russians Not Responsible For Wikileaks Documents – Truthfeed
.

.
Julian Assange, the man who has told the truth and has a perfect 10-year record of “getting it right” has come out to say that #RussianHackers are not responsible for the DNC/Podesta “hacks.”

Yet, even so, liberals and our lying North Korea-style, government-run propaganda media are still pushing this narrative with no hard evidence, only conjecture and rumor.

John Podesta lost his cell phone not long before his emails were shared on Wikileaks.

That’s a much more plausible reason than Russian Hackers.

Why wouldn’t savvy Russian Hackers bypass Podesta and go for Hillary’s email who is notoriously sloppy with her security?

It makes zero sense, like most liberal conspiracy theories…

Shocker: DC’s Transgender Cop Poster Child Turns Out To Be A Pervert – Daily Caller

A transgender police officer in Washington, D.C., who has repeatedly been praised as a community role model has also quietly been reprimanded for improper sexually-tinged antics with underage police interns.

In a story published Thursday night, NBC4 News profiled Jessica Hawkins as a police officer who “helps build trust in [the] D.C. community” due to his work on an LGBT outreach unit. Hawkins, who previously went by Billy, is biologically male but identifies as a woman, and publicly transitioned two years ago.

NBC4’s story is just the latest positive one about Hawkins, who has also been profiled by NPR, Metro Weekly and other outlets.

But a new report by local D.C. station Fox 5 shows another, more disturbing side of Hawkins that hasn’t appeared in profiles. According to the report, Hawkins has repeatedly landed in hot water because of his conduct around interns for D.C.’s police department.

“Sgt. Hawkins showed the interns a ‘homemade video of her having sex with 4 men while she was intoxicated,’” Fox’s report says. Another complain filed against Hawkins accused him of taking under-21 interns to an Arlington gay bar, where she helped them buy alcohol and laughed at one intern’s possession of a fake ID.

According to Fox, Hawkins has admitted that both complaints against him are accurate, and was quite cavalier in the admission. Hawkins even volunteered that he had shown other interns an inappropriate picture on his phone…

Army Beats Navy To End 14-Year Losing Streak In Series – ESPN
.

.
The Army football team and its fans around the world can finally rejoice.

No longer will they have to listen to barbs from Navy or lament another missed opportunity in the biggest game of the year.

At long last, The Streak is over.

Army ended a 14-year run of frustration against the Midshipmen, using an overpowering running game and opportunistic defense to carve out a long overdue 21-17 victory Saturday.

With future commander in chief Donald Trump looking on, the Black Knights blew a 14-point lead before quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a 9-yard run with 6:42 left to give Army the win it had been waiting for since 2001.

The Black Knights’ 14-game losing streak was the longest by either academy in a series that began in 1890. Army (7-5) now trails 60-50-7 in one of the nation’s historic rivalries…

Republicans Cruz And Desantis To Push Constitutional Amendment Imposing Term Limits On Congress – BizPac Review

Now that Republicans have control of the executive branch, both houses of Congress and the majority of the states, Sens. Ted Cruz and Ron Desantis think they can now get term limits implemented for senators and congressmen.

In an op-ed for The Washington Post the two senators said that creating a Constitutional amendment to limit the terms of congressmen and senators would prove Congress “has actually heard the voice of the people” to “drain the swamp.”

“Though our Founding Fathers declined to include term limits in the Constitution, they feared the creation of a permanent political class that existed parallel to, rather than enmeshed within, American society. As Benjamin Franklin said, ‘In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors… For the former therefore to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them,’” they wrote.

The Amendment would limit senators to two terms and congressmen to three.

The senators pointed out that a Rasmussen poll showed 74 percent of Americans support the idea of term limits for Congress and that Trump mentioned imposing them when he campaigned for the presidency.

“The time is now for Congress, with the overwhelming support of the American people, to pass a constitutional amendment establishing congressional term limits and send it to the states for speedy ratification,” the senators wrote…

Trump Picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson As Secretary Of State – Zero Hedge
.

.
In a move that is certain to infuriate those who see Trump as nothing more than a puppet of the Kremlin, moments ago NBC reported that Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil and late entrant into the SecState race after his first meeting with the president elect this past Tuesday at the Trump Tower, has been picked by Trump to serve as his next Secretary of State.

As NBC adds, Tillerson met Saturday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York, the president-elect’s spokesperson confirmed. The selection of Tillerson comes after Trump and his transition team spent weeks searching for someone to fill the post of the top U.S. diplomat. Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani were reportedly in the running. Giuliani said Friday he had taken his name out of consideration.

The 64-year-old Texas oilman, whose friends describe as a staunch conservative, emerged as a Secretary of State contender only last week following a meeting with Trump, when it was speculated that he would consider the offer “due to his sense of patriotic duty and because he is set to retire from the company next year.”…
