News Outlet Lists Nearly 300 False Statements Trump Has Made So Far

A Canadian news publication has taken on the onus of keeping track of all of the mistruths spewed by President Trump throughout his time in office, and they've thus far caught him making a whopping 294 false statements. The Star has taken on the task of fact checking each claim the President makes and recording when he's off of the mark, as was the case when he said his administration has added nearly 1 million jobs [the number actually rounds out to about 581,000]; or when a claim he makes is completely fabricated, as was his assertion that scores of illegal voters ...

CBS News has learned that U.S. investigators are looking into whether Trump campaign representatives had a role in helping Russian intelligence as it carried out cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political targets in March 2016.

Unlike the judicial orders already in place, the order entered by Judge James Robart (a ...

President Obama speaks out against Trump’s actions for the first time since leaving office

President Obama, who would almost certainly disapprove of what the world has seen taking place over the weekend, with the Trump Administration taking the, for lack of a better term, disgraceful action of banning people from entering the United States of America solely based on their religious faith. For the purpose of saying it, Donald Trump feels it is okay to ban people from entering this country because they are muslims. What follows is President Obama's official take as released by Obama's spokesman Kevin Lewis. President Obama is heartened by the level of engagem...

Acting Attorney General says Justice Department Won’t Defend Trump’s Ban on Refugees, Travelers

Unless you've been living under a rock, you would know what transpired over the weekend with the blowback from Trump's Executive Order banning people of a specific religion from entering the country. Yes, the United States of America is now banning people from entering the country based on their religion. What kind of people are being discriminated against? Muslims. The Trump Administration will do their very best to spin this in any number of ways, about how this isn't about religion, but everybody can see quite clearly that it is. And what makes this even worse is this ...

Russian treason arrest seen as tacit corroboration of US intel (Rachel Maddow MSNBC)

Rachel Maddow of MSNBC made a very compelling argument tonight supporting the theory that recent high level arrests in Russia may in fact be proof that information inside that now infamous Trump Dossier, or information provided by U.S. intelligence agencies about efforts to assist Donald Trump, and undermine Hillary Clinton, in the 2016. Check it out for yourself. And perhaps equally important is the information provided by Rachel Maddow leading into the above reveal regarding treason arrests in Russia.

Supreme Leader Trump? This Man is Trying to Give Himself His Own National Holiday.

We don't take credit for the absolutely awesome picture above. Credit goes to Trevor Noah and Comedy Central. This guy must seriously think he's a dictator or something... Look at this nonsense. In a move that would perhaps only appear normal in North Korea or in some kind of brutal dictatorship, Donald Trump has gone full blown crazy, and is handing down declarations clearly designed to celebrate himself, and not a thing more. We knew the man had a tremendous ego, but we clearly underestimated him. Maybe, just maybe, he really might end up being crazy enough to use a ...

Getting Rid of Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) May Be Harder Than Republicans Think.

I prefer to call this law the Affordable Care Act, because that's the actual name of the law, not Obamacare. The name Obamacare, in fact, is actually a term the Republican Party came up with in order to better assist them in denigrating all the good that the law does. Its true, and more nefarious, purpose is to make even people who would normally be predisposed to supporting the spirit and intention of the law, bizarrely hate it by default anyway through the use of a form of psychology that assumes by attaching the President's name to any and all references to the law, ...

U.S. Intercepts Capture Senior Russian Officials Celebrating Trump Win

Given the president-elect’s skepticism about the intelligence community — particularly its conclusions about Russia — the Trump Tower briefing has taken on the tenor of a showdown between the president-elect and the intelligence agencies he has disparaged. “The Russians felt pretty good about what happened on Nov. 8 and they also felt pretty good about what they did,” a senior U.S. official said. U.S. officials declined to say whether the intercepted communications were cited in the classified version of the report commissioned by Obama, and they ...

FBI backs CIA view that Russia intervened to help Trump win election

The FBI knew this, but felt it more important to send a letter about more Hillary Clinton e-mails? We deserve a do over. FBI Director James B. Comey and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. have backed a CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the presidency, according to U.S. officials. Comey’s support for the CIA’s conclusion suggests that the leaders of the three agencies are in agreement on Russian intentions, contrary to suggestions by some lawmakers that the FBI disagreed with the ...

U.S. Officials: Putin Personally Involved in U.S. Election Hack

U.S. intelligence officials now believe with "a high level of confidence" that Russian President Vladimir Putin became personally involved in the covert Russian campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election, senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News. Two senior officials with direct access to the information say new intelligence shows that Putin personally directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used. The intelligence came from diplomatic sources and spies working for U.S. allies, the officials said. Putin's objecti...

President Obama orders review of Russian election-related hacking

President Obama has made the very important decision to order a full review of all Russian related hacking activity tied to what many in the U.S. intelligence community seem almost certain was an attempt on Russia's part to interfere and directly influence our election. "The President has directed the Intelligence Community to conduct a full review of what happened during the 2016 election process. It is to capture lessons learned from that and to report to a range of stakeholders," she said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. "This is consist...

The FBI Is About To Get The Power To Hack Millions Of Computers

This is literally the stuff that nightmares are made of. This is very, very bad news, and is something that everybody should read up on. This is unchecked power in a way that should scare anybody with an ounce of common sense, or do we all think that this type of power is a good thing for the FBI to have with the new incoming President Elect Donald Trump? As someone who personally has more than just a little bit of experience with the subject in question, and who has a pretty good idea of the capabilities at the FBI's disposal, you would be making a monumental mistake in ...

Trumps warns companies against trying to leave the country

Guess you can sorta chalk this one up as a promise kept. He didn't manage to save every job, and the deal carries potential long term risks should companies see benefit to threatening to send American jobs overseas as a means of extracting a reward on par with, or better than, what Carrier received, while still successfully shifting some jobs overseas anyway... but this does represent President Elect Trump trying his best, and somewhat succeeding, at keeping a promise he made to voters during the campaign. That said, Trump went so far today as to promise consequences for ...
