Rep. Jim Jordan: House Has Obligation to Continue Clinton Investigation




Just because Trump has reversed course on a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton doesn’t mean the former first lady is out of the woods yet. The Ohio representative and leader of the rambunctious Freedom Caucus declared in a Fox & Friends interview that the House has an obligation to further investigate Clinton’s misuse of classified emails.

“Well we do have an obligation, not just any old obligation, it’s a constitutional obligation,” Jordan said in the Fox News interview. “She obviously broke federal records law — at least I think she did.” He made the case that everyone, including Clinton, should be held to the same standards under the law.

Rep. Jordan has been the leader of the Freedom Caucus since its inception in 2015. He announced that he does not plan to run for another term. The caucus elected three new board members Tuesday night.As for Trump and Clinton, the president-elect has seemingly taken an inclusive tone since winning the election. Trump feels he needs to represent all Americans and believes another Clinton investigation would be a distraction against his blossoming White House agenda. He remarked that he does not want to “hurt” the Clinton family.

However, the GOP-led House can hold committee hearings if they so choose.

‘America’s best days are ahead of us,’ Romney says after meeting with Trump




Romney, the former GOP presidential nominee being considered for secretary of State, praised President-elect DMittonald Trump on Tuesday night after a dinner in New York.

“I happen to think that America’s best days are ahead of us,” Romney said after dinner, according to pool reports. “I think you’re going to see America continue to lead the world in this century.”

Romney, who said he was discussing “affairs throughout the world” with Trump, told reporters he was “impressed” with how Trump handled his victory speech and his transition efforts, naming Cabinet-level nominees such as South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.

“All of those things combined gives me increasing hope that President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future,” Romney said at around 9:30 p.m. ET in the lobby of Trump Tower. Trump left through a different exit as Romney addressed reporters, according to pool reports.

He did not respond to questions about whether they have a similar view on Russia, if he apologized for his past criticism of Trump and who paid for dinner, according to the pool reports.

Romney ate with Trump and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus at Jean Georges, an upscale French restaurant at Trump Tower. This is the second meeting between Trump and Romney, once a fierce critic, in the weeks since the election.

Trump Wins Michigan



The Associated Press is reporting that Donald Trump has officially won the state of Michigan.  The margin was razor thin, but a win is a win, especially when any Republican candidate has to run against the Democrat nominee and the Media, or as Ann Coulter likes to say, “The fourth branch of government.”

That puts the Electoral College totals at Trump: 306, Clinton: 232.

Fidel Castro, Cuban Revolutionary Who Defied U.S., Dies at 90






Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died Friday. He was 90.

His death was announced by Cuban state television.

In declining health for several years, Mr. Castro had orchestrated what he hoped would be the continuation of his Communist revolution, stepping aside in 2006 when he was felled by a serious illness. He provisionally ceded much of his power to his younger brother Raúl, now 85, and two years later formally resigned as president. Raúl Castro, who had fought alongside Fidel Castro from the earliest days of the insurrection and remained minister of defense and his brother’s closest confidant, has ruled Cuba since then, although he has told the Cuban people he intends to resign in 2018.

Pence: Obamacare Repeal Comes First for Trump






Repeal of the 2010 health care law is a top priority as soon as Donald Trump takes office in January, Vice President-elect Mike Pence said in a Sunday television interview.

“Decisions have been made, that, by the president-elect, that he wants to focus out of the gate on repealing Obamacare and beginning the process of replacing Obamacare with the kind of free-market solutions that he campaigned on,” Pence said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Pence also laid out a broad policy agenda that would follow.

“From there, we’ll work on issues ranging from ending illegal immigration, reviving our economy through tax reform, rebuilding the military, restoring the infrastructure of this country,” Pence said. “But I do hope to continue to play a supportive role to take President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda to Capitol Hill and work with leaders, frankly in both political parties, to move the country forward and make America great again.”

The End of the Clintons



By: Matthew Continetti

The most damning revelation from John Podesta’s hacked emails was contained in a message sent by Hillary Clinton’s chief pollster to Podesta and others on February 7, 2016. It concerned a speech the candidate was about to deliver. “Other than what she has been doing over the last few days,” asked Joel Benenson, “do we have any sense from her what she believes or wants her core message to be? I pose this only because the opening graph here, which I assume is the core frame, is written in passive as opposed to active voice and it is still not clear what her singular message is.”

Benenson’s question was remarkable. His candidate was a 69-year-old woman who had spent her entire adult life preparing to run for election as the first female president of the United States of America, and after half of the campaign cycle had already elapsed, she still had no clear reason for wanting the job. Bernie Sanders, Benenson went on, “has simplicity and focus—the corrupt political and economic systems are rigged to keep giving more to the billionaire class while the middle class has been hollowed out.” It was a message remarkably similar to the one proclaimed by the man who, nine months later, would win the general election.

Hillary Clinton won’t be president because her family became estranged from the very communities that put her husband in the White House some 25 years ago. Bill Clinton grew up in poverty, was governor of one of America’s poorest states, and despite attending Georgetown and Yale and Oxford, never lost his connection to the white working class among whom he was raised. He won Appalachian states like Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, as well as the Upper Midwest states of Michigan and Wisconsin. Hillary Clinton had no such connection. Nor did she attempt to forge one.

Congress continues investigations into Hillary Clinton

One of the things that made me the most anxious about Donald Trump was that he would change his stance about “Crooked Hillary” once the Election was over. He seems to have softened his approach to Hillary and her myriad scandals when he was interviewed on “60 Minutes,” but Jason Chaffetz and others in Congress are still on Hillary’s trail with false testimony, obstruction of justices and serious national security breaches still being investigated.

I want to give these fine public servants the kudos they richly deserve. Keep up the good work and let’s finally see Hillary Clinton and Co. brought to justice.
