GENIUS: Democrats declare war on their base (and the rest of America) #SchumerShutdown

So the Democrats have succeeded in shutting down the government, thanks to a 60-vote threshold required to approve a continuing resolution.

Now, you and I know that, but Democrats on Twitter are apparently still unable to do simple math.

The brilliant mathematician Keith Boykin, if that is his real name, is unable to evaluate the expression 51 < 60.

See the number of retweets? This is what passes for informed commentary on the increasingly unhinged left.

ON THE BRINK: Obamagate Scandal Poised to Explode All Over the Obama DOJ and FBI #ReleaseTheMemo

Some of the comments by lawmakers who have seen the Top Secret 4-page report on abuse of FISA surveillance by the Obama DOJ and FBI are stunning:

"This is so alarming the American people have to see it"... "Has to be made public"... "Shocking"... "Part of me wishes I didn't read it"... "Laws were broken"... "Like the KGB"...

..."We can never live in a country that lets this kind of thing happens"... "the cast of characters identified in his memo... are still in our government and still wield influence"... "criminal consequences"... "it's easy to see after reading this memo why... this was referred for criminal prosecution..."

BOMBSHELL REPORT ON FISA ABUSE: The “Very Foundations of Our Democracy” At Risk

Sara Carter has the latest revelations on #Obamagate.

Tick tock:

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.

Oh. As for Democrats?

THE SCHUMER SHUTDOWN: Democrats Prioritize Illegal Aliens Over Health Care for 9 Million Kids

By Sgt. Fury

The headlines say it all.

Senate Democrats are proud to have the votes to shut the government down. Their reason for opposing a government funding bill that fully funds the health care program for 9 million American children?

Because there has yet to be a deal on the fate of a program that protects 700,000 illegal aliens (a program that doesn’t expire until March).

Sounds like a solid strategy for all the red-state Senate Democrats up for election in 2018. Good luck with that. #SchumerShutdown

HERE THEY ARE: The Highly-Anticipated 2017 #FakeNewsAwards

By Team GOP

2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.

Below are the winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards:

It's difficult to rank the worst political scandals in US history, but this has to be close to #1

By Luke Rosiak

Report: Pakistanis Made ‘Unauthorized Access’ To Congressional Democrats' Servers

House investigators concluded that Democratic IT aides made unauthorized access to congressional servers in 2016, allegedly accessing the data of members for whom they did not work, logging in as members of Congress themselves, and covering their tracks, according to a presentation summarizing the findings of a four-month internal probe.

Their behavior mirrored a “classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization,” and they continued even after orders to stop, the briefing materials allege. There are indications that numerous members’ data may have been secretly residing not on their designated servers, but instead aggregated onto one server, according to the briefing and other sources. Authorities said that the entire server was then physically stolen.

TRUMP: The Anti-Obama

I must highlight some key graphs from historian Victor Davis Hanson's latest missive. It is masterful, outlining several important notions.

First, that the Never Trump Republicans must increasingly deal with administration policies that are far more conservative than anything they could have hoped for from their preferred losers candidates like ¡Yeb!.

Second, and more importantly, that the Donald is actually unwinding the massive administrative state ("the fourth branch of government", as described by Mark Levin) that has grown inexorably like a tumor on the body politic for well nigh a century.

MARK LEVIN: This is not a free press, these are Democrats dressed up as reporters

By Phil Shiver

LevinTV host Mark Levin came out swinging Monday night on his radio show, blasting the liberal media and liberal politicians for their “mob mentality” attacks on President Trump.

“This is not a free press,” Levin argued. “These are Democrats dressed up as reporters.”

WHAT IS THE STEELE DOSSIER? A Jeffsplainer for the Dim-witted and Progressives, But I Repeat Myself

By Stealth Jeff
The Steele Dossier was a hastily cobbled together justification for two things: 1) to justify the spying on Trump's campaign team PRIOR to Mike Rogers shutting down NSA SIGINT database mining for Trump Team comms up to April, 2016.
2) to justify RESTARTING intelligence community intercepts of Trump campaign/transition team comms by proffering the dossier to the FISA Court by claiming Trump team members were foreign agents serving Russia.
We don't know exactly when FBI subcontractors began to be used by the DOJ/FBI Hillary/Obama/DNC nexus to mine the NSA SIGINT database for Trump campaign team comms & then to submit Sec. 702 unmasking requests to reveal the names of Trump team members in the intel incercepts.
What we DO know is that in April 2016, NSA director Mike Rogers was made aware of the fact there were an unusually high number of Section 702 unmasking requests being made that were coming through the FBI...
