The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration’s public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the analysts claim.

...That complaint was supported by 50 other analysts, some of whom have complained about politicizing of intelligence reports for months. That’s according to 11 individuals who are knowledgeable about the details of the report and who spoke to The Daily Beast on condition of anonymity.

The accusations suggest that a large number of people tracking the inner workings of the terror groups think that their reports are being manipulated to fit a public narrative. The allegations echoed charges that political appointees and senior officials cherry-picked intelligence about Iraq’s supposed weapons program in 2002 and 2003.

The two signatories to the complaint were described as the ones formally lodging it, and the additional analysts are willing and able to back up the substance of the allegations with concrete examples....

The large number of analysts who complained to the Pentagon inspector general hasn’t been previously reported. Some of them are assigned to work at CENTCOM, the U.S. military’s command for the Middle East and Central Asia, but are officially employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Unraveling the Russian Hack Conspiracy Propaganda

...Blaming Russia for Hillary’s flame out is absurd. The Russians did not create and lie about Hillary’s server. They did not force her to back the multilateral trade agreements, such as NAFTA and TPP. They didn’t set up the Clinton Foundation as a cash cow for the Clinton family. They did not force her to advocate imposing a No Fly Zone in Syria and having been a cheerleader for past wars, including Iraq and Libya. Vladimir Putin did not slip her a mickey and cause her to pass out at the 9-11 memorial, which fueled concerns about her health. And they did not infect her lungs and cause her to have extended coughing jags. They did not cause her to call Americans deplorables. They did not make her say that the coal industry should be shutdown. With that kind of record, coupled with her shrieking, screechy voice, why are folks surprised that she did not win?...

Before the election, prominent stock pickers warned that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would plunge 1,000 points if Donald Trump were elected president.... The exact opposite has occurred.

The Dow closed up nearly 300 points on Wednesday at 19,549.62—less than 500 points from the 20,000 milestone. Moreover, the Dow is up over 1,200 points in the four weeks since Trump was elected—nearly 7 percent.

...Given that the equity markets are often driven by emotion and anticipation of things to come—good or bad—it appears that both institutional and individual investors believe a Trump presidency will be good for the economy, as Fortune sees it.
A rising tide lifts all boats. But in the stock market, that can be a bad thing. When all stocks start rising for no reason, you have to wonder whether Mr. Market is getting a little giddy. That’s not the case right now.

Georgia says it has traced a voter hacking attempt back to the DHS (Department Of Homeland Security)

According to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp, foul play was discovered when a hacker failed at attempting to breach the firewall that protected the Georgia voter’s registration database. The IP address in question was discovered to originate from the Department of Homeland Security itself.

On a Facebook post on Thursday, Kemp said he has “sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson demanding to know why.”

...As in other areas of immigration enforcement, Trump will be able to effect radical change simply by following the law. In this case, it is the Secure Fence Act, passed in 2006 with bipartisan support — 283 votes in the House and 80 in the Senate, including then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The law ordered the Secretary of Homeland Security, within 18 months of passage, to "take all actions the secretary determines necessary and appropriate to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States."...

When attorney John Hinderaker took the helm of the Center of the American Experiment last January, the Golden Valley-based think tank was spending most of its energy preaching to a small choir of Twin Cities conservatives already versed in its small-government, free-market mantra.

Hinderaker, founder of the nationally recognized conservative blog Power Line, began to remake CAE’s image from “thought leader” for a wonkish elite few to a force reaching millions of Minnesotans. His methods to amplify the message: Traditional and new media, and public events.

Here's what 15 years of global earthquakes looks like in under four minutes


Leftist politicians supposed that ordinary voters with modest incomes facing hard times would believe that regulation and redistribution would help them. Evidently most don't....

It's been a tough decade for the political left. Eight years ago a Time magazine cover portrayed Barack Obama as Franklin Roosevelt, complete with cigarette and holder and a cover line proclaiming "The New New Deal." A Newsweek cover announced "We Are All Socialists Now."

Now the cover story is different. Time has just announced, inevitably though a bit begrudgingly, that its Person of the Year for 2016 is Donald Trump. No mention of New Deals or socialism....

Things look different now, and not just because Donald Trump was elected president. It has been clear that most voters have been rejecting big government policies, and not just in the United States but in most democratic nations around the world.

Leftist politicians supposed that ordinary voters with modest incomes facing hard times would believe that regulation and redistribution would help them. Evidently most don't....

Is Donald Trump already the president?

President-elect Trump has spent the month since his election victory engaging in some distinctly presidential-style behavior, including engaging with businesses on behalf of the American people, conducting a bit of foreign policy, and delivering sweeping public addresses — all before he holds the authority of the presidency.

With weeks to go until he takes office, Trump's moves have tested the limits of his unofficial powers as the president-in-waiting. And although his activism has drawn scrutiny from detractors, his favorability ratings have hit new heights on the heels of several high-profile successes.

"I don't think it's normal for a president-elect to be out and about like this, but this is the era of Trump, and he is literally rewriting the rules," said Ford O'Connell, a Republican strategist....

Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes Says Democrats Were Bigger First Amendment Threat Than Trump

..."The threat to the First Amendment came from the Democratic side," Bewkes said during a conversation with Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget at a conference in New York in a session that was webcast.

Bewkes made the comment after Blodget noted that Trump had criticized CNN for allegedly unfair coverage, and even threatened some sort of regulation in retaliation against CNN, owned by Time Warner.

"I don't think that's a serious thing," Bewkes told Blodget at the Ignition: Future of Digital conference. "If anybody is going to change the First Amendment — remember, the Democratic party had a campaign plank to change the First Amendment, and they were doing it in the guise of campaign finance reform."

The CEO, continuing his theme, even acknowledged that the news media does, indeed, lean left, as conservatives have long complained.

"That was worrying me more, because the press tends to miss that because they tend to lean that way, and therefore they were supporting what they were viewing, I think overly charitably, as something in cleaning up money in politics when in fact what it would do is restrain multiple voices," Bewkes argued. "So, I thought the threat to the First Amendment came from the Democratic side more. I think there won't be a serious effort on the Republican side."...

Trump’s FULL AMAZING SPEECH at Carrier Plant on Saving Jobs

Al Gore on his meeting with Donald Trump: "I found it an extremely interesting conversation”

"The same people that voted for Trump ran into burning buildings and saved whoever the f**k they could"

...“Not everybody that voted for Trump is a racist,” Stewart said, mimicking remarks he made in November. “I don’t give a fuck what any of you say to me. You can yell it at me, you can tweet it at me. They’re not all racists. Or they’re not giving tacit support to a racist system. We all give tacit support to exploitative systems as long as they don’t affect us that badly.”...

Stewart scolded the media’s obsession with presidential politics.

“How long is the campaign? A year and a half? I assume [television media is] talking right now about who’s running in 2020,” he said. “They don’t give a flying fuck about governance, they care about campaigns and that’s where the fun is for them. That’s devastating. And not only is it devastating news-wise, it’s devastating to all of us.”

Stewart said America’s prolonged presidential campaigns promote division.

“Because if a campaign is too long, the fault lines between different tribes in our societies solidify,” he said, adding, “A campaign is 18-months-long and you’ve got to choose a side for 18 months and then a disagreement becomes an argument and an argument becomes a fight and a fight becomes a feud and a feud becomes a war.”

Obama claims immunity from lawsuit under "the king can do no wrong" legal maxim

...Everyone is familiar with William Blackstone's famous aphorism, "That the king can do no wrong, is a necessary and fundamental principle of the English constitution." But what does that have to do with us on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, we who revolted against a "God-King" with the words "all men are created equal," broke free and created a constitutional Republic?

As it turns out, precious little. In 1996, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that sovereign immunity is a judge-made doctrine that has been "thoroughly discredited" because it is founded on the notion "that a divinely ordained monarch 'can do no wrong.'"

Not surprisingly, "Sovereign immunity … is a right that cannot be found in the text or the framers' intent," wrote recognized legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky.

More importantly, whether the federal government is subject to the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection was asked and answered in 1995. In a reverse discrimination lawsuit brought by a small family business that installed guardrails on federal highway projects, federal lawyers argued that the federal government was exempt from the equal protection clause because of its responsibility to rectify racial injustice.

The Supreme Court rejected that notion. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote for the 5-4 majority in Adarand v. Pena, "[A]ll governmental action ['by whatever federal, state, or local governmental actor'] based on race ... should be subjected to detailed judicial inquiry to ensure that the personal right to equal protection of the laws has not been infringed."

Justice Antonin Scalia concurred, writing, "In the eyes of government, we are just one race here. It is American."

Another day, another legal filing and yet another unconstitutional legal assertion by the Obama administration. The end cannot come soon enough.
