The FBI is disputing the New York Times story that claims that Russia was meddling in the 2016 election to get Donald Trump elected.

Remember when liberals actually cheered on foreign interference in our elections?

The Libertarians at Reason.com would like for both the CIA and the FBI to release the info they have on the possibility that Russia hacked the 2016 election… otherwise, they should shut up.

Given the incendiary nature of the charges being made in the press by anonymous sources at two of the least-reputable organizations in the United States (both the CIA and FBI have long histories of making honest mistakes, incompetent oversights, and outright deception), it’s not enough for the intelligence community simply to share its information with the full Congress, which is actually even less trusted than the media. Just 20 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers, for instance, while even fewer of us—just 9 percent!—have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of trust in Congress.

The public has a right to know what our intelligence services think *they* know.

Rep. Justin Amash agrees with Reason.

The real “fake news” is in the mainstream media: the New York Times just hired Glenn Thrush who became infamous during the Wikileaks releases as one of the reporters who would routinely send the Clinton campaign his stories for approval before they were published.

The President-elect is not happy with the cost of the military’s F-35 program. Mr. Trump recently tweeted that “The F-35 program and cost is out of control.”

One Canadian politician opposes self-defense because she says it’s “SEXIST”!

Georgia state Senator Josh McKoon has introduced legislation in the Peach State that would make it illegal for illegal immigrants to receive “in-state” tuition to Georgia colleges.

A Christmastime tear jerker – a little boy who was terminally ill wanted to meet St. Nick passed away in the arms of Santa Claus.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
