Reporter Asks If Trump Is ‘Mentally Unfit’ — Sanders Puts Them In An Asylum

Posted: 05 Jan 2018 01:31 AM PST

 

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked by a reporter, "What is the president's reaction of the suggestions in this book that he is mentally unfit?"

Sanders laughed and called the claim and new anti-Trump book "disgraceful and laughable:"

If [Trump] was unfit, he probably would not be sitting there and would not have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen. This is an incredibly — strong and good leader, that is why we have had such a successful 2017 and why we are going to continue to do great things as we move forward in the administration.

FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS DOWN 2 MILLION – TRUMP REVERSING ANOTHER OBAMA-ERA CULTURE

Posted: 05 Jan 2018 01:11 AM PST

 

By Dom Calicchio | Fox News                                         

Since Donald Trump became president, the Dow Jones industrial average has climbed to 25,000 and fewer Americans are unemployed.

Another interesting fact: The number of people collecting food stamps has declined by more than two million.

Data released by the Department of Agriculture show that the number of participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), otherwise known as food stamps, dropped to 42,182,443 for fiscal 2017 – a decline of 2,036,920 from the fiscal 2016 total of 44,219,363.

USDA figures since show that the program has gone from costing taxpayers about $250 million for about 2.8 million recipients in 1969, under President Richard Nixon, to a peak of costing nearly $80 billion for nearly 48 million recipients in 2013, under President Barack Obama.

The numbers have declined since then, in part because of the booming economy and because some states have restored work requirements needed to qualify for SNAP, Fox News reported. In many cases the work requirements had been waived because of the recession of 2007-09.

Big unions sent over $1B in dues to Dem groups since 2010 without member approval

Posted: 05 Jan 2018 01:03 AM PST

The money came from major labor groups including the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

 

  •  "Big Labor is now the ATM of the Democratic Party, whether employees agree or not."

 

By Perry Chiaramonte | Fox News

 

Big labor groups have sent over $1 billion to left-leaning groups since the start of the decade without prior approval from the unions’ members, according to eye-opening new research.

The report from the Center for Union Facts (CUF) showed that a total of more than $1.1 billion in member dues was sent to groups such as the Democratic Governors Association, Planned Parenthood and the Clinton Foundation from unions including the AFL-CIO, IBEW, UNITE HERE and many others. The CUF said that under current labor law, union officials can send money obtained through member dues on political advocacy without obtaining any sort of "opt-in" permission.

"For decades, union officials have betrayed working Americans by spending their dues dollars to advance a left-wing political agenda—without prior approval," Luka Ladan, spokesman for the Center for Union Facts, told Fox News. "Big Labor is now the ATM of the Democratic Party, whether employees agree or not."

Included among the top recipients are the Democratic Governors Association with over $14.1 million, America Votes with near $13 million, and the Center for American Progress with over $6.2 million.

Among the hundreds of other organizations that received money from big unions are aligned party groups like the Working Families Party, Progressive Majority, Media Matters for America, Brennan Center for Justice, and Al Sharpton's National Action Network.

JUDGE: FUSION GPS MUST TURN OVER SUBPOENAED BANK RECORDS TO HOUSE INTEL

Posted: 05 Jan 2018 12:50 AM PST

 

A federal judge ruled on Thursday that House investigators have the right to subpoena Fusion GPS's bank records.

The judge has denied Fusion GPS’ request for an injunction blocking the House Intel committee from subpoenaing a bank for records about Fusion’s financial transactions.

 

The Hill reported:

A federal judge ruled Thursday that the Washington-based firm Fusion GPS cannot block the House Intelligence Committee from subpoenaing the firm's financial records, according to court documents.

Court records obtained by BuzzFeed News show that U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon denied Fusion GPS's request for an injunction on the grounds that such a disclosure to Congress would violate the firm's First Amendment rights.

 


CLINTON FOUNDATION UNDER NEW FBI AND DOJ INVESTIGATION

Posted: 05 Jan 2018 12:37 AM PST

 

The Justice Department just launched an investigation into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

John Solomon of The Hill reported:

FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

Bannon nixed statement praising Trump Jr. after Trump attacked him

Posted: 04 Jan 2018 02:22 PM PST

 

( The Hill ) Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon on Wednesday was about to issue a statement praising Donald Trump Jr.and disputing his quotes in a book from Michael Wolff, but the statement was spiked after President Trump went nuclear on his former chief strategist.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation say that Bannon's aides sought to impress upon him the need to put out a statement quickly. The aides had crafted a statement, which was pending Bannon's approval, when the White House beat him to the punch.

In the unreleased statement, Bannon had planned to call Trump Jr. a patriot and dispute the account in Wolff's book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” in which Bannon described Trump Jr. as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic" for setting up a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer.

Bannon and his allies did not see a need to release the statement once Trump accused his former top campaign aide of having "lost his mind." They believe the president's statement effectively ended the relationship between the two men.

"He was literally just about to respond but backed off when the White House issued the statement," said one source.

LIMBAUGH: STEVE BANNON SOURCE OF MOST WHITE HOUSE LEAKS; BANNON MAY SOON BE OUT OF BREITBART

Posted: 04 Jan 2018 02:05 PM PST

 

  • Rush Limbaugh: "The thing that I think everybody believes and that everybody knows is that most of the leaking that was coming out of the Trump White House was Steve Bannon “

 

( Daily Wire ) On Thursday afternoon, The Wall Street Journal reported that former White House chief strategist and Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon could be ousted from the publication he runs. That revelation follows President Trump nuking Bannon from orbit over Bannon's statements that the Trump family had acted in "treasonous" and criminal fashion. According to the Journal:

Mr. Bannon's longtime benefactors, billionaires Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer, are actively distancing from him even before the expected release of Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," according to two people close to the Mercers.

They and other Breitbart News Network LLC board members on Thursday were debating whether to oust Mr. Bannon as chairman, with many supportive of the move, according to a person familiar with the exchanges. Among the considerations are Breitbart's contractual relationships with other entities, including Sirius XM radio, that involve Mr. Bannon.

 

 

Limbaugh: Most leaks coming from White House were from Bannon

 

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that he believes Stephen Bannon was responsible for the majority of the first-year leaks coming out of the Trump administration.

"The thing that I think everybody believes and that everybody knows is that most of the leaking that was coming out of the Trump White House was Steve Bannon .

…The straw that broke the camel's back was when it was conclusively proven that Bannon was the big leaker. I think they knew it all along.

Bannon has been thought of as Trump's right-hand man on policy, agenda, populism, advancing the Trump agenda and all this. And, at other occasions, Bannon has appeared to be at great conflict with Trump, thinking that Trump doesn't know what he's doing, that Bannon is the reason anything happened.

He's giving interviews to reporters and conveying that point of view. He goes on 60 Minutes and then contradicts that. He's back to saying the Russian collusion story is a nothing burger. Nothing to it. Trump is great. It's all over the ballpark. You can't keep track of it. And then I start asking, "Why is everybody so fascinated and interested in this?"

PROOF! AUTHOR MICHAEL WOLFF SECRETLY TAPED INTERVIEWS WITH BANNON, TOP OFFICIALS FOR HIS BOOK ‘FIRE AND FURY’

Posted: 04 Jan 2018 09:55 AM PST

 

( Axios by Mike Allen ) Michael Wolff has tapes to back up quotes in his incendiary book — dozens of hours of them.

Among the sources he taped, I’m told, are Steve Bannon and former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh.

  • So that’s going to make it harder for officials to deny embarrassing or revealing quotes attributed to them in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” out Tuesday.
  • In some cases, the officials thought they were talking off the record. But what are they going to do now?
  • Although the White House yesterday portrayed Wolff as a poseur, he spent hours at a time in private areas of the West Wing, including the office of Reince Priebus when he was chief of staff.
  • The White House says Wolff was cleared for access to the West Wing fewer than 20 times.
  • Wolff, a New Yorker, stayed at the Hay Adams Hotel when he came down to D.C., and White House sources frequently crossed Lafayette Park to meet him there.

 

Some reporters and officials are calling the book sloppy, and challenging specific passages.

  • How could Wolff possibly know for sure what Steve Bannon and the late Roger Ailes said at a private dinner?
  • It turns out Wolff hosted the dinner for six at his Manhattan townhouse.

BANNON APOLOGY? ‘TRUMP IS A GREAT MAN, I SUPPORT HIM DAY IN AND DAY OUT’

Posted: 04 Jan 2018 09:47 AM PST

 

"The President of the United States is a great man," said Breitbart News's Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Wednesday's edition of SiriusXM's Breitbart News Tonight.

Bannon's comments came in response to Justin from California, a caller-in to Breitbart News Tonight noting President Donald Trump's recent criticisms of Bannon.

Partial transcript below.

JUSTIN: First of all, I think [Donald Trump] made a huge mistake, Steve, bashing you like he did today on Twitter. That was devastating to me. I hope in the future you can forgive him for that when we come to 2020, because I'm sure he's going to need your help.

BANNON: The President of the United States is a great man. You know I support him day in and day out, whether going through the country giving the Trump Miracle speech or on the show or on the website, so I don't you have to worry about that. But I appreciate the kind words.

JUSTIN: Yeah, that just made me sick to my stomach, though.

"[Donald Trump] got sucked in by fake news, or trolled," said Gayle in Alabama, another caller-in toe Breitbart News Tonight, framing the president as being fooled by cultivated drama via the Hollywood Reporter's Michael Wolff.

Job-cut announcements in 2017 see lowest level since 1990, Challenger report says

( CNBC by  ) U.S. employers announced plans to cut 32,423 jobs in December, bringing the year’s total to a low not seen since 1990, global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas reported Thursday.

“The tight labor market, coupled with uncertainty surrounding health care and tax legislation, possibly kept employers from making any long-term staffing decisions this year,” CEO John Challenger said in a statement. “However, 2018 may see an increase in job cut announcements, as companies realign with consumer demand.”

Cuts in 2017 totaled 418,770, 20 percent below 2016’s number. In 1990, companies announced plans to cut 316,047 jobs.
