    Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, partnered this year with a controversial technology company co-run by a man once convicted of trying to sell stolen biotech material to the Russian KGB espionage agency. Check it out on Bloomberg. I just saw an interesting news report about Flynn on t.v. but you can go on to the Bloomberg website and read all about it.

    Yea that is all over the internet on literally hundreds of sites mastered by Think Progress the George Soros financed core of the liberal brainwashing machine.
    You people all have this man tried convicted and hung. Thank GOD Trump is to be the President. Soros is already being hunted by European governments who want his ass bad.

    Ron Paul sums up Obama
    Barack Obama started with a Nobel Peace Prize and is ending his presidency with the Pentagon’s Distinguished Public Service Medal.
    Sounds about right for a president who bombed 7 nations and became the first in U.S. history to be at war every single day of his eight year administration.

    The Left Means to Break This President
    By James G. Wiles
    Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign against Donald Trump largely amounted to a reprise of the left's attacks on Judges Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas in the 1980s. "Borking" -- nice slang for Hillary’s "politics of personal destruction" (which she decried when it was employed against her husband in 1998) -- succeeded against Judge Bork. It did not work against Justice Clarence Thomas. And it demonstrably didn't work against president-elect Trump.

    So what is the left going to try next, now that Borking Mr. Trump has failed?

    "Massive resistance." that's what.

    I laughed when Slate's Michelle Goldberg used the term on NPR last week. Because the last time Democrats talked about "massive resistance," it was Southern Democrats in the 1950s and 60s. They were proclaiming undying resistance to an end to Jim Crow and forced desegregation.

    You know -- Little Rock. Selma. Montgomery. Governor George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door

    Those Democrats.

    Well, that's not we're dealing with here. What I'm predicting is a return to the huge marches on Washington against the Vietnam War. To the 24-hour picketing of the White House. To teach-ins. Student strikes. Full-page ads and petitions. Leaks of classified information. An unceasing drumbeat of media and academic criticism. The Movement, as it came to be called, deployed a monthly "national mobilization," with a big march in DC and coordinated smaller demos around the country.

    These tactics were deployed in the '60s and '70s, first against President Lyndon Johnson and then against Richard Nixon.

    Get ready, because it's coming again. Whether, this time, the U.S. will confront -- as it did in the '70's -- violent actions by leftist radicals, such as bombings, bank robberies and other actions to fund domestic terrorism is anyone's guess. But we do know it did before. And we know that today #occupywallstreet and #blacklivesmatter are out there.

    We also know, from the mass demonstrations two years ago against state labor legislation in Wisconsin and Ohio, that today's American left is perfectly willing to deploy those tactics to take over and occupy state capitols. Just ask Scott Walker and John Kasich. And in North Carolina, the Dems successfully held “Moral Monday” rallies at the state capitol for four years, resulting in the narrow defeat of the sitting Republican governor.

    A friend involved in the inauguration next week reported that downtown DC is plastered with posters

    calling for counter-demonstrations in DC on Inauguration Day. He Facebooked me pictures.

    One poster was from a new group. “Join us for a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump,” it proclaims. An examination of the website suggests an affiliation with the “occupy” movement.

    The other subway poster, quite striking, reminded me of CPUSA posters from my college years in DC in the early '70's. All the colors and the design were there. Even the dark yellow paper.

    All of these calls for “direct action” center on January 20th. But there's more. On January 21, a "million-woman march" is called for.

    Meanwhile, new Democratic Facebook groups targeting Mr. Trump and the Trump agenda pop up on my Facebook feed every day, asking me to "Like" them. Last week, a full-page ad by a new group, called refusefascism appeared on page 7 of the New York Times.

    All in all, its reminds me of the anti-Nixon "Inhoguration" on the Mall on January 20th, 1973, which I covered as a college journalist.

    Of course, branding its opponents as "fascists" has been a standard tactic of the global left since the 1980s. In Europe, Mr. Putin & Co. still use it today against free Western governments and institutions which he would like to subvert.

    So, on one level, there's nothing new here.

    And yet, all of this is sobering – if you remember your history.

    That's because there is a trap here. An American president named Richard Nixon fell into it.

    While the anti-war left of the 1970s failed to prevent Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger from successfully bringing "peace with honor" in Vietnam, they did succeed in provoking Watergate. That scandal -- which covered a multitude of White House sins, all directed at the anti-war left -- undid all that the Nixon administration had accomplished in Southeast Asia. It drove an American president from office. It also led to the disasters of the Carter administration.

    Nixon's resignation happened within 21 months of the greatest presidential landslide in American history. As with Hillary Clinton in 2016, George McGovern lost the presidential election of 1972. But the Nixon administration's overreaction from 1969-1972 to the left's unending assault on the presidency, our national security, and our institutions ultimately succeeded in handing the American left its goal. America and the world paid for it for years.

    Therefore, in closing, I want to recall two voices from the past. First, the late Washington Post columnist David Broder. Second, the words of Richard M. Nixon as he left office in August, 1974.

    Broder was the dean of DC political reporters. When Nixon took office in January 1969, the leaders of the Antiwar Movement announced that, having broken one president, they proposed to break the new one too.

    Broder, a Democrat, dissented. In what became a highly controversial column.entitled "The Breaking of a President: A Risky New American Sport." Broder wrote: "It is becoming more and more obvious with every passing day that the men and the movement who broke Lyndon B. Johnson's authority in 1968 are out to break Richard Nixon in 1969." He continued: "When you have broken the President you have broken the one man who can make peace."

    That was in 1969. The same, of course, applies to president-elect Trump today.

    The antiwar left rejected David Broder's advice. And, with Watergate, they and the Democrats in Congress succeeded in breaking another president, driving him from office. The consequences we know.

    What we also need to remember, however, is Richard Nixon's warning on the day he was forced out. Speaking to friends, supporters, and the White House staff, the president said: "Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself."

    Does anyone reading this doubt that the American left is organized and determined to bring about a redo of 1974?

    I suggest, therefore, that we all remember Nixon's words as we prepare for the Trump Administration. Our opponents on the left are not, most of them, America's enemies. So we should use laughter rather than vitriol to defeat them.

    But defeat them we must.

    The one thing the Devil cannot stand is laughter.

    Trump doesn't need an excuse like the Democratic party to be a failure as president. Time will tell. Give him a couple of years in office. I predict he will be impeached.

    First thing to remember, news report coming from Bloomberg will never be Trump friendly. I have attached the Bloomberg story you had referrance: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...ed-with-firm-run-by-man-with-alleged-kgb-ties

    Within that report is a link to the following Report on espionage and other compromises of national security, dated 2009, so you will not find HRC's name mentioned.

    http://www.dhra.mil/perserec/espionagecases/espionage_cases_august2009.pdf

    On page 30 of this report is a fairly detailed account of Kota's envolment. Of the 3 people involved, Kota entered into a plea agreement with the government resulting in a fine of $50k, placed on 4 years probation, his partner, Prasad was given 15 months, reduced to time served, and the main target of this investigation, Vladimir Galkin, a former KGB Intel officer, was arrested on Oct 29th, and released Nov. 13th.

    These investigations are part Kabuki theater, and Alice in Wonderland. You really never know what you think you know until you don't know what you thought you knew.

    I think it is good to always consider the source, a fact that many ignore when the information aligns with their opinion

    That went out the door when the Enquirer broke John Edwards story, they broke the Tiger Woods scandal, they buried Gary Hart, and got Rush Limbaugh on pain killers. Up till just 20 years ago the Enquirer was sneered at as fake news. Today no one wants to be on their radar.

    George Soros is a Hungarian-American business magnate, investor, philanthropist, political activist and author who is of Hungarian-Jewish ancestry and holds dual citizenship. He drives more than 50 global and regional programs and foundations. Soros is named an architect and a sponsor of almost every revolution and coup around the world for the last 25 years. The USA is thought to be a vampire due to him and his puppets, not a lighthouse of freedom and democracy.

    For your own sale stop watching The View. They are fear mongers.

    Personally I like the pick for Education Secretary. It is a direct hit on the backbone of the Democratic party. Teachers Unions. Wait for these policies to take affect. Education our young instead of indoctrinating them.

    Ads in two dozen cities offer protesters up to $2,500 to agitate at Trump inaugural

    Demand Protest ads running seek operatives to “send a strong message” at presidential inauguration
    Donald Trump may have a point about paid protesters: Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events.

    Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”

    “Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad.

    “We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues. “We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”

    The job offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.
