Tax March turns into demand for Trump's IRS filings; 13 reported arrests

Thousands of protesters turned out Saturday in events across the country to demand President Trump release his full IRS returns, mostly large-but-peaceful events with several arrests reported in California.

That the events were held on the deadline for hundreds of millions of Americans to file their federal returns was largely coincidental. Their intent was to pressure Trump to release his tax documents and to help Trump opponents stake out their position ahead of the president’s pending tax reform plan.

“Today, across American we are taking the gloves off to say it’s time to knock off the tax rip-off,” Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden told a crowd of several hundred people gathered at the base of Capitol Hill.

“No more Cayman Islands tax breaks … no more Wall Street tax breaks,” he roared before the crowd marched several miles to the National Mall. “It’s time to knock off the secrecy Mr. President and release your own tax returns.”

Thirteen people were reportedly arrested when Trump protesters clashed with supporters in...

Maxine Waters’ Latest Scandal to the Tune of Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), is involved in yet another ethically troubling situation. The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that her daughter Karen Waters and her firm Progressive Connections has been paid over $600K by her mother since 2006.

She was paid nearly $70,000 during the 2016 election cycle alone.

She has done it before. CREW lists Maxine as the most corrupt member of congress n 2005, 2006, and 2009. Waters is one of the few members of Congress with a record of unethicaldealings that can compare with Hillary Clinton’s, CREW writes.

This isn’t the first time that Waters has gotten herself into ethical hot water, in fact, it’s happened several different times over the nearly three decades she’s been in Congress.

In 2010, Waters was brought up on three separate charges by her colleagues in the House, even after Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) warned her against getting involved in advocating for a bank in which she had financial interest.

In the midst of a national financial crisis, Waters used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to prevail upon Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank. She never disclosed that her husband...

When “incidental” intel collection—isn’t incidental

I’ve spoken to a small group of reliable, formerly high-placed intelligence officials who have dropped a few interesting tidbits on me of late. Here’s my understanding, based on the discussions:
  • It’s not true that wiretaps and/or electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens can “only” be done with a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court order.
  • Besides the FISA court, “wiretapping” or electronic surveillance can also be done under Title III authority. The government used this authority, for example, in the Justice Department’s secret Fast and Furious “gunwalking” case.
  • Additionally, U.S. Presidents have the power to issue secret presidential directives that can authorize otherwise illegal acts (theoretically in the country’s best interests). These directives may come with pre-planned cover stories to be used in the event the operation is exposed, and they come with indemnity for those involved, giving them permission to lie about the operation or their involvement without fear of prosecution.
  • The public will rarely know about such presidential directives since most who see them must sign agreements that promise nondisclosure and consent to polygraphs.
  • Computer surveillance is a grey area in the intelligence community where many insiders argue the traditional privacy restrictions and surveillance rules don’t necessarily apply.
  • The term “wiretapping” is used in a general sense to refer to electronic eavesdropping, even though the actual “tapping” of “wires” is not routinely necessary with today’s technology and tradecraft.

Flagship carrier Air China to suspend flights to Pyongyang from Beijing

Air China, the only Chinese carrier with regular services to North Korea, will suspend flights between Beijing and Pyongyang from Monday, China Central Television reported on Friday.

No reason was given for the suspension but flights between the two countries have been put on hold in the past due to lack of passengers.

The announcement came hours after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that a conflict over North Korea could break out “at any moment”.

“Lately, tensions have risen ... and one has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment,” Wang said. “If a war occurs, the result is a situation in which everybody loses and there can be no winner.”

Wang’s pointed assessment followed US President Donald Trump’s statement that the North Korea problem “will be taken care of”, as speculation mounts that...

1st video released of US mega-bomb strike against ISIS

US Forces in Afghanistan have released aerial footage of the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) strike on an Islamic State cave and tunnel systems in the Achin district on Thursday.

The footage shows the devastation of the 11-ton yield bomb, which was dropped from a MC-130 aircraft. A large mushroom cloud of smoke can be seen over the region, with a massive crater left in its wake.

The MOAB, known officially as the GBU-43/B, was first tested in 2003 but had not been used by the US since, due to concerns over possible civilian casualties. The bomb has a blast radius of 1-mile (1.6 km) and costs $16 million to produce just one.

WATCH: Lockheed’s Sikorsky Touts Coaxial Attack Helo Concept

Lockheed Martin Corp.’s Sikorsky unit is out out with a new video touting its concept for a coaxial attack helicopter for the U.S. Army.

The three-and-a-half-minute animated video was released Monday and features the company’s idea for an assault and attack variant of the SB>1 Defiant, a large coaxial design it’s pitching for the U.S. Army‘s Joint Multi-Role (JMR) technology demonstrator and Future Vertical Lift (FVL) programs.

The attack version will cruise at more than 250 knots — nearly double the speed of the average helo, perform a hover out of ground effect (HOGE) at 6,000 feet and 95 degrees Fahrenheit — which at standard temperature is almost the equivalent of flying at 14,000 feet, and hold a crew of four and up to 12 combat-equipped troops or room for up to eight litters, according to the commercial.

With increased range and payload, the choppers could be refueled by KC-130J and next-generation Air Force tankers, according to the advertisement.

Congress expands 'unmasking' probe amid questions over Rice role

The House and Senate intelligence committees are expanding their investigation into the so-called “unmasking” controversy, Fox News has learned, to examine whether other candidates or lawmakers beyond President Trump’s associates were affected.

Until now, the investigation focused on how the identities and communications of Trump transition members were collected by U.S. intelligence agencies and then revealed to, and disseminated among, high-ranking members of the Obama administration.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now plans to audit files from the National Security Agency and White House to determine whether identities and conversations of presidential candidates -- or members of Congress -- also were swept up during NSA surveillance of foreign leaders. He also plans to review whether Obama’s National Security Council and White House counsel collected and distributed the intelligence for reasons unrelated to foreign intelligence.

“We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration,” a member of the committee told Fox News. “This is now a full-blown investigation.”

Staffers on the Senate committee told Fox News they also have expanded their investigation into whether presidential candidates were unmasked and information was misused -- and what role former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, among others, played following reports that she...

Sean Spicer: More And More Reports Show President Obama Spied On Trump Campaign

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked a question about the unmasking of American citizens in intelligence reports, and whether or not the White House was aware of who had done the masking and, more importantly to some, who ordered the unmasking to be done.

Spicer replied that too many people were focused on the process of the investigation rather than the substance.

“I know a lot of folks want to talk about the process and not the surveillance and the underlying issue of the substance — the unmasking and leaks is what we should all be concerned about.”

Spicer went on to lay out the facts, as they were at the time of the press briefing, suggesting that the president was correct in claiming that the previous administration was gathering intelligence on his people.

He explained, that on March 2nd, an Obama administration foreign policy expert, Dr. Evelyn Farkas, was making an appearance on television, admitting to the collecting of intelligence on Donald Trump and his people.

“I was urging my former colleagues, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill; I was telling people on the Hill, get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can. I had a fear that they were essentially watching the Trump staff, and he was worried about the Trump administration.”

It was within days of Farkas making this statement that...

Soros-Funded Group Chaired By Elizabeth Warren’s Daughter Fighting Voter Integrity Lawsuits

George Soros and his henchmen are determined to make sure that the American people do not wrest power from the political and media elites that he bankrolls. They are doing their best to make sure that America never, ever becomes great again.

“Soros-Funded Group Chaired By Elizabeth Warren’s Daughter Fighting Voter Integrity Lawsuits,” by Joe Schoffstall, Washington Free Beacon, April 11, 2017:

An organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros and chaired by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s daughter is fighting lawsuits brought forth by election integrity groups in a number of cities.

Demos, a New York City-based progressive public policy organization, is assisting unions in pushing back against election lawsuits filed in North Carolina and Florida. The group is also writing letters of interest in another lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Amelia Warren Tyagi, Warren’s daughter, chairs the board of Demos.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based legal group that litigates to protect election integrity, filed a lawsuit against...

Jeff Sessions Delivers Sweeping Reforms to Protect the Border and US Citizens

Attorney General Jeff Sessions paid a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border today during a trip to Nogales, Arizona, where he spoke to a group of Customs and Border Protection agents and prosecutors.

He referred to the southwest border as “ground zero” in the fight against “transnational gangs like MS-13 and international cartels [that] flood our country with drugs and leave death and violence in their wake.” He added that “it is here that criminal aliens and the coyotes and the document-forgers seek to overthrow our system of lawful immigration.”

Sessions pledged to ratchet up the fight against “criminal organizations that turn cities and suburbs into warzones, that rape and kill innocent citizens, and who profit by smuggling poison and other human beings across our borders” using “[d]epravity and violence a[s] their calling cards, including brutal machete attacks and beheadings.”

Sessions declared: “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era. The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch and release practices of old are over.”

Sessions backed up this statement by unveiling a series of new policies.

First, he announced that...
