President Trump on Sunday said he’ll ask the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate whether the FBI surveilled his campaign.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Trump tweeted.

Not long afterward, the DOJ announced it had asked its inspector general to expand its probe into alleged surveillance abuses to encompass the most recent claims.

‘World of uncertainty’: Hawaii lava reaches sea, injures man

By Linda Massarella

Lava erupts inside Leilani Estates near Pahoa, Hawaii on May 19.
AP



A Hawaiian man was struck by chunks of lava as he stood on his third-floor balcony on the Big Island over the weekend, the first reported injury since a volcano there began shaking and sputtering almost three weeks ago.

Hawaiian officials said the victim was a homeowner in the Pahoa neighborhood – which lays near the Kilauea volcano — and his leg was shattered from his shin to his foot when the lava sprayed him.

New NRA leader Oliver North on school shootings: 'Disease isn’t the Second Amendment'

By Joseph Weber | Fox News




Oliver North on NRA's response to Texas school shooting
Incoming president of the National Rifle Association addresses calls for more gun control after attack on Santa Fe High School.


New NRA President Oliver North said Sunday, in the aftermath of the deadly Texas school shooting, that students “shouldn’t be afraid” to attend class but made clear that his gun-rights advocacy group still doesn’t think the solution is limiting Second Amendment rights.

“I believe that we can make sure kids are protected without taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens,” North, a former Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, told “Fox News Sunday.”

North called for metal detectors in schools and pushed the National Rifle Association’s “school shield” agenda, which he said offers school’s a free security assessment that includes looking at how people enter and exit buildings.

He spoke two days after a 17-year-old opened fire at a Houston-area high school, killing 10 people and injuring 13. It was the 16th school shooting this year and the deadliest one since the massacre in Parkland, Fla., in February that gave rise to a campaign by teens for gun control. Seventeen people were killed in the Florida massacre.

Fight Beijing’s Surveillance State

If China gains dominance over digital technology, it would be dangerous for freedom world-wide.

By Zalmay Khalilzad

May 17, 2018 7:13 p.m. ET

Donald Trump wants to use the Chinese telecom firm ZTE, which faces corporate death after violating U.S. sanctions, as a bargaining chip in negotiations with China over trade or North Korea. The president should also remember that China seeks to replace the U.S. as the world’s pre-eminent power, and surpassing the U.S. in digital technology has become a key component of its strategy.

Beijing continues to invest heavily in research and development, subsidizing its high-tech industries. As in the past, it is also acquiring technology...

'FBI plant' in Trump campaign was US-born Cambridge professor, reports say

By Bradford Betz | Fox News




Stefan Halper, a University of Cambridge professor, has been identified as an FBI plant in the Trump campaign, according to multiple news outlets. (The Institute of World Politics)


American-born University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper has been identified as an FBI informant in Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, multiple news outlets reported Saturday.

The 73-year-old academic reportedly has deep ties to American and British intelligence, having served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, the New York Post reported.

President Trump tweeted Friday that confirmation of an FBI plant in his campaign would become the nation's "all time biggest political scandal."

OPINION_ Hostile powers like Russia and China threaten US communications networks -- enough

Hostile powers like Russia and China threaten US communications networks -- enough

OPINION By Sen. Tom Cotton, Ajit Pai | Fox News




Our nation’s communications networks benefit us in ways unimaginable at the start of the digital age. But a potential danger lurks: hidden “backdoors” in network equipment. A hostile foreign power could use these backdoors to spy on Americans or attack our critical infrastructure by injecting viruses or launching denial-of-service attacks. These backdoors can be designed into routers, switches, and virtually any other type of telecommunications equipment that, together, make up our networks.

This highlights the importance of our networks’ supply chain—that is, the process by which telecommunications equipment is manufactured, sold, distributed, and installed. Whether the threat involves hacking into our nation’s communications networks or conducting industrial or political espionage at the behest of a foreign government, the integrity of the supply chain has worried U.S. government officials for years.

In 2012, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a bipartisan report on the national security threats posed by certain foreign manufacturers. This past year, Congress barred the Department of Defense from buying certain equipment and services from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE on account of concerns about those companies’ connections to that country’s government. And Congress recently banned all federal agencies from using products or services made by Kaspersky Lab, a company with alleged ties to the Russian government.


We’re committed to protecting our national security, and this proposal is a prudent step to accomplish that goal.

Toronto Mayor Says Asylum Seekers Will Soon Dominate City’s Shelters

David Krayden
Ottawa Bureau Chief

3:41 PM 05/19/2018


Toronto Mayor John Tory says so many “refugees” are streaming into the city that they will probably dominate the city’s homeless shelters by the fall. According to CBC News, the city is already spending $64 million in tax dollars to keep the illegal immigrants in hotels.

On average, 10 people a night are arriving at Canada’s largest city — usually from the U.S. or via Quebec — and claim to be refugees. Tory wants the Trudeau government, which already spends hundreds of millions to process the influx of illegals, to help with the accommodation costs.

Obama's FBI Spied On The Trump Campaign, So What Did He Know And When Did He Know It?

Katie wrote about it this morning. It’s confirmed, folks. The FBI had a spy embedded with the Trump campaign. She added the bureau did not have enough evidence to launch a criminal investigation, so they executed a counterintelligence probe instead in July of 2016. The code name was “crossfire hurricane.” This was the investigation signed off by FBI agent Peter Strzok. Sztrok was a top counterintelligence agent before being transferred to human resources after his extramarital affair with bureau lawyer Lisa Page was made public and the two’s texts, which numbered in the tens of thousands, were riddled with anti-Trump and pro-Hillary sentiments. Once then-FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Trump in May of 2017, Robert Mueller took over the investigation. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein oversees him.

The Page-Strzok texts formed the basis of inquiry into the FBI’s role in all of this. How impartial were they? The texts were so problematic that Mueller removed him in August of 2017. The two discussed how they felt the FBI was going too hard on Hillary as well; Strzok was also involved in that investigation as well. Was the bureau in the tank? The optics weren’t good, especially when reports came that Strzok was presented with evidence that the former first lady’s email server was breached and did nothing about it. But the main focus was the text Strzok sent about a meeting with then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe in which he referenced an “insurance policy” against Trump. Many have alleged this is a reference to the Trump dossier, which was used to obtain a spy warrant against Carter Page, who was a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign. This is unsettling because the dossier was a bankrolled project by Democrats. The Clinton campaign hired research firm Fusion GPS, who then contracted former MI6 spook Christopher Steele to compile dirt on Trump. Still, the counterintelligence probe into Russian collusion and the Trump team, in which there is still zero evidence, moved forward:

North Korea’s Secret Army: How Operatives Abroad Aid the Regime

Records of an undercover agent who lived as a businessman in Malaysia reveal the ways he kept goods flowing to North Korea, despite sanctions

By Alastair Gale and Tom Wright May 18, 2018 10:06 a.m. ET


KUALA LUMPUR—Ri Jong Chol, a slight man in his mid-40s, led what appeared the routine life of a businessman. He lived in an apartment complex with a pool and gym, a family man who took his wife and two children bowling.

Mr. Ri’s computers and phones, seized last year by Malaysia authorities, reveal much more. He was a North Korean operative, one of hundreds living abroad who U.S. and United Nations investigators say help the regime skirt sanctions by generating cash and sourcing goods. ...
