I wish The Left cared more about FBI corruption than a corrupt ex-FBI deputy losing his pension— Chet Cannon (@Chet_Cannon) March 18, 2018
Friday's firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history....
From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in a free republic. And it will not just be the small change of Peter Strzok (the dimwitted director of counter-intelligence) and his gal pal Lisa Page. It will include—on one level or another—James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice and, almost inevitably, Barack Obama, not to mention others known and unknown.
All these people's reputations will be damaged forever for the pathetic purpose of getting Hillary Clinton elected president and later for their determination to manipulate the FBI and intelligence agencies to wound as severely as possible Trump's presidency. That they didn't stop to think that they might be wounding America at the same time is extraordinarily selfish and nauseating....

“Correction: Trump’s pick to head CIA did NOT oversee waterboarding of Abu Zubaydah.”— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) March 15, 2018
Oops. That’s jussst a bit of a fuck-up.https://t.co/AFIc56YnHu
On Feb. 22, 2017, ProPublica published a story that inaccurately described Gina Haspel’s role in the treatment of Abu Zubaydah, a suspected al-Qaida leader who was imprisoned by the CIA at a secret “black site” in Thailand in 2002.
The story said that Haspel, a career CIA officer who President Trump has nominated to be the next director of central intelligence, oversaw the clandestine base where Zubaydah was subjected to waterboarding and other coercive interrogation methods that are widely seen as torture. The story also said she mocked the prisoner’s suffering in a private conversation. Neither of these assertions is correct and we retract them. It is now clear that Haspel did not take charge of the base until after the interrogation of Zubaydah ended....

Elizabeth Holmes — the Silicon Valley wunderkind whose blood-testing startup Theranos has collapsed in a slew of scandals — has been charged with “massive fraud” by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The SEC on Wednesday accused Theranos CEO Holmes and a top lieutenant of defrauding investors of more than $700 million through false claims about its technology.
Holmes — a Steve Jobs wannabe who dressed exclusively in black turtlenecks as she talked up her blood-testing unicorn, which at one point boasted a valuation north of $9 billion — settled with the regulators for $500,000 while neither admitting nor denying the accusations....
The disgraced CEO also misled employees about its institutional backing, according to the charges. Theranos distributed pitch books to investors containing articles purportedly written by other pharmaceutical executives — lending the startup institutional clout —but were in fact written by company employees, according to the charges....
The SEC claims that Holmes misled investors about her technology, which Theranos said was able to test for diseases with only a pinprick, and more cheaply than what was commercially available, according to the SEC settlement.
In reality, the company didn’t have any reliable technology to test blood samples, and sent blood to third-party companies for testing, according to the complaint....

NEW REPORT: Obama had ties to group behind 'Trump Dossier' back in 2012... https://t.co/8vjfyCfAhq— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) March 13, 2018
The tell-all, titled “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” describes how senior members of the Obama campaign hired the firm behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ in 2012; hiding payments to the group by funneling money through its law firm, Perkins Coie.
The Clinton campaign used similar techniques when they hired the research group to find dirt on Donald Trump during the 2016 race for the White House.
“In 2012, Fusion GPS was hired to do opposition research on Mitt Romney for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign,” writes the author.
“As had become standard practice in the shadowy world of ‘oppo’ research, the Obama campaign’s payments to Fusion GPS were never publicly disclosed; the money paid to the investigative firm was reported on campaign disclosure reports as legal bills to the campaign’s law firm, Perkins Coie,” the book adds.
According to the Daily Caller, the Obama administration paid upwards of $3 million to the law firm during the 2012 election; referring to their work as “legal services.”

...Pompeo is a very strong pick for the position, replacing Rex Tillerson at Foggy Bottom.

In addition, he has extensive experience working with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, having served three terms in Congress, where he served as a member of the House intelligence committee.

Two other initiatives want to create a “New California” or split the state up into three parts.
To all you cynics out there, California is worth fighting for, and President Trump is proving that. California was and still is the true heartbeat of the Trump movement. Before Trump had declared his candidacy, patriots lined up outside of Murrieta in 2014 and turned away the buses still with illegal aliens. Breitbart News is based in California, which helped showcase the awful, unconscionable murder of Kate Steinle in sanctuary city San Francisco. Stephen Miller, the outspoken policy advisor on illegal immigration, comes from the People’s Republic of Santa Monica, and many of the conservative policy wonks making the case for protecting our borders and our culture learned from the best at Claremont-McKenna college … in California.....
Let us also not forget that to this day, Californians have exposed treasonous DACA meetings hosted by our elected officials, and we have shut down lawless Attorney General Xavier Becerra three times. From 15 Californians who stood up against 25,000 George Soros puppets at LAX airport just nine days after Trump’s inauguration, Californians across the state are now fighting back, reminding the country that we are Americans who love our country, but definitely do not trust our government. There are millions of citizens in California who are still Americans, regardless of their political affiliation.
People say to hell with #California, as if we deserve the needles-and-feces strewn streets gifted us by liberal #Democrats. Many of us love what this glorious state was (and still could be) if the desire for illegal Democrat votes hadn’t destroyed her once regal beauty.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) March 7, 2018

President Trump has issued an order blocking Singapore's Broadcom from taking over American chipmaker Qualcomm on national security grounds.
...Trump’s order came shortly after the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) said in a letter to both companies that the deal posed national security concerns. CFIUS noted that Broadcom had violated its rules “on at least three separate occasions,” including when it recently moved to relocate its headquarters to the United States without providing proper notice to the committee....
