GOP Lawmaker Calls 
For ‘Purge’ Of FBI And DOJ 
by CHUCK ROSS
{dailycaller.com} ~ A Republican lawmaker on Tuesday called for a “purge”... of what he said are “deep state” elements within the FBI and Justice Department. “I’m very concerned that the DOJ and the FBI, whether you call it deep state or what, are off the rails,” Florida Rep. Francis Rooney said in an contentious interview with MSNBC host Hallie Jackson. Rooney expressed concern over what he said was evidence of anti-Trump bias within the law enforcement agencies. He cited the recent scandal involving anti-Trump and pro/liar-Hillary Clinton text messages sent by Peter Strzok, an FBI agent who led both the Russia investigation and the liar-Clinton email probe. Rooney also pointed to the recent demotion of Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official...  http://dailycaller.com/2017/12/26/gop-lawmaker-calls-for-purge-of-f...

It May Be Time to Defund the United Nations
by Andrew
{conservativefreepress.com} ~ Sen. Marco Rubio hasn’t always been the most steadfast supporter of the Trump administration... but he – like many Republicans – was distressed by what he witnessed on Thursday when the United Nations General Assembly voted 128-9 to condemn the U.S. for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. In a tweet following that disgraceful vote, the Florida senator said it might be time for America to seriously think about pulling its investments out of the increasingly-hostile international organization. “Given its tendency to be a forum for anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism, reevaluation of US role as single largest donor to #UN is long overdue,” wrote Rubio. President Donald Trump and Ambassador Nikki Haley have also said that the vote will weigh heavily when it comes to America’s relationship with member countries, to say nothing of the organization as a whole...  http://www.conservativefreepress.com/foreign-policy/rubio-may-time-...
Arab Apartheid Targets Palestinians
by Khaled Abu Toameh
Iraq has just joined the long list of Arab countries that shamelessly practice apartheid against Palestinians... The number of Arab countries that apply discriminatory measures against Palestinians while pretending to support the Palestinian cause is breathtaking. Arab hypocrisy is once again on display, but who who is looking? The international media -- and even the Palestinians -- are so preoccupied with US President Donald Trump's announcement on Jerusalem that the plight of Palestinians in Arab countries is dead news. This apathy allows Arab governments to continue with their anti-Palestinian policies because they know that no one in the international community cares -- the United Nations is too busy condemning Israel to do much else. So what is the story with the Palestinians in Iraq? Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Iraqi government has approved a new law that effectively abolishes the rights given to Palestinians living there. The new law changes the status of Palestinians from nationals to foreigners...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11620/arab-apartheid-iraq-palest...

China Stops All Oil Exports To North Korea 
In Rare Move As Sanctions Take Hold
by Chuck Ross, Daily Caller
{thepoliticalinsider.com} ~ China did not export any oil products to North Korea in November... as U.S. sanctions against the isolated country continue take effect, according to a report Tuesday from Reuters. The move comes as North Korea ratchets up ongoing nuclear and missile programs despite years of U.N. resolutions prohibiting the actions. U.N. Security Council imposed a new batch of limits of oil products earlier this month to the communist country. China did not export any gasoline, jet fuel, diesel or fuel oil, or any other petroleum products to North Korea last month, according to the report, that relied on General Administration of Customs data for its conclusion...  https://thepoliticalinsider.com/china-oil-north-korea/?utm_medium=e...

Congress targets top 
FBI officials in criminal investigation
by André Gustavo Stumpf
Under the leadership of Chairman Devin Nunez (R-Calif.), Republicans from the House Intelligence Committee... have been working for weeks in consultation with the House general counsel, scrutinizing the Mueller team. POLITICO has reported that the purpose of this informal internal review is to uncover instances of “corruption and conspiracy in the upper ranks of federal law enforcement.” Nunez and his colleagues hope to release a report by early next year underlining the flaws in the special prosecutor’s probe, speculating on whether their actions represent improper or criminal acts. Most important of these allegations is that the Mueller team may have criminally mishandled the contents of the infamous Trump Dossier. The Intelligence Committee’s findings could undermine the final results of Mueller’s investigation and even be used to warrant the Special Counsel’s dismissal... https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/government-corruption/congres...

It’s Official: Nikki Haley 
Announces Cuts to the UN Budget
by Katie Pavlich
{townhall.com} ~ Just days after warning the United Nations the United States doesn't pay to be be disrespected, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has announced a $235 million cut to UN Budget. The news comes after more than 100 countries voted to condemn the U.S. for officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol city of Israel. More from Fox News: 

Calling it “a big step in the right direction,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday night announced a historic reduction in the U.N. biennial operating budget.

Haley said the plan calls for a $285 million cut for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked."

She added, “This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable U.N. – is a big step in the right direction.”

The U.N. budget now covers a two-year period, beginning in January of an even-numbered year.

The announcement comes after negotiations with the UN Secretary General, who also proposed an additional $200 million in cuts.

The United States was seeking a $250 million cut to the U.N. budget for 2018-19, on top of $200 million in savings already proposed by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Agence France-Presse reported two weeks ago.

Earlier this year, President Trump gave a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York City and called for reform of the international body.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
