FBI's Strzok And Page Spoke Of 'Secret Society' After Trump Election
Two top FBI officials under fire for exchanging anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election spoke of a “secret society” the day after President Trump's victory, according to two lawmakers with knowledge of the messages. Peter Strzok -- a top counterintelligence official involved in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe -- exchanged more than 50,000 messages with senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was romantically involved. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, said Monday that among the messages the pair exchanged are references to a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI. Fox News

Why FBI's 'Missing' 5 Months Of Texts Is Worse Than Watergate
Richard Nixon's secretary Rose Mary Woods erased 18 minutes of tape recording of the president and became infamous in1972. The FBI failed to preserve five months of text messages and expects the American public to believe it was a random mistake. This is worse than Watergate. The text messages between agents Peter Strozk and Lisa Page are instructive for several reasons. First, the texts were sent in the lead-up to Robert Mueller being named a special counsel in the investigation of Russia and the 2016 presidential election. Second, earlier messages that have been released included not only the involvement of outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but the desire of top-level FBI officials to create an “insurance policy” against a Donald Trump presidency. Fox News
VOA VIEW: The FBI and DOJ has lost all credibility.

Jeff Sessions Is Doing Trump's Political Dirty Work
The defining moment of Jeff Sessions's time as attorney general has been when he recused himself from oversight of the Russia investigation. That quickly led to the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is now extensively probing President Trump. And by all accounts, it seriously strained Sessions's relationship with Trump, who thinks Sessions should be protecting him and doing his bidding. But there are increasing signs that Sessions has indeed done plenty of Trump's bidding behind closed doors.  Washington Post
VOA VIEW: Liberal BS talking points.

Musk's New Pay Deal Could Make Him World's Richest Man If Tesla Succeeds
It is the Elon Musk of corporate pay deals, a cocksure, all-or-nothing moonshot into history. Little wonder, then, that it is for none other than Elon Musk. Tesla Inc. granted the billionaire founder a $2.6 billion award, the largest-ever of its kind, underscoring the company’s outsize ambitions and how intimately connected its future success is to Musk. If fully vested over a decade, stock options would net him as much as $55.8 billion. Bloomberg

Millennials are pushing back against the stereotype that their money management skills are lacking, as 16% now have savings of $100,000 or more, double the amount of young people who had socked away that much in 2015, according to a new Bank of America survey.

O’Keefe Tears into Twitter Censorship
James O’Keefe launched his important new book American Pravda: My Fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News with a week of spectacular undercover videos that exposed Twitter’s policies censoring the views of conservatives and libertarians. Just consider the following admissions O’Keefe got on video: Mo Norrai, a former Content Review Agent for Twitter, says: “Let’s say if it was pro-Trump and I am anti-Trump, I was like, I banned his whole account. It goes to you, and then it’s at your discretion. And if you’re anti-Trump, you’re like, oh you know what, Mo was right, … let it go.” InfoWars

Here’s A Crazy Theory: Maybe Americans Just Want A Rational Immigration Policy
When Minority leader Chuck Schumer surrendered to Republicans on Monday, some left-leaning political analysts argued that Democrats had showed absolutely no spine during the government shutdown, while others argued that Democrats hadn’t had the time to properly craft a winning message. Rarely considered, however, was the notion that the message itself was the problem.  The Federalist

Religious Activists On The Rise Inside Health Department

Those officials include Roger Severino, an anti-abortion Catholic lawyer who now runs the Office of Civil Rights and last week laid out new protections allowing health care workers with religious or moral objections to abortion and other procedures to opt out.
