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.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
