Pentagon is considering nuclear attacks as a response to cyber attacks.
The New York Times reported that the Defense Department's 2018 Nuclear Posture Review, details whether to retaliate against a cyber attack aimed at the United States by way of nuclear strikes against the culprit.
This comes in response to years of cyber hacks and attacks as well as rumors of attacks by North Korea and others.
This is being pushed as a strategy to scare U.S enemies that have the ability to attack the United States through cyber warfare.
The New York states that a cyber attack does not mean there will automatically be a nuclear response.
In extreme conditions of a cyber attack, then this strategy may come into play.
A new poll states that voters believe Trump will be cleared of the Russia probe.
The counsel is to be held by Robert Mueller and in the political world there is a lot of speculation. Some people are just waiting for Trump to say something incriminating that will get him jammed up.
I'm surprised at this poll. Even more I'm surprised Trump still has people that believe he can keep his mouth shut long enough or even answer questions about Russia with saying spilling the beans.
This has more to do with the American people being gullible than it does with what Donald Trump actually has to say.
The Justice Department is launching a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation to figure out whether they were involved in pay for play politics and other illegal activities that Hillary Clinton may have been involved in when was the Secretary of State.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Agents from Arkansas were collecting information on the Clinton foundation for more than a year.
Top Trump Justice Department Officials promise that law enforcement will continue the investigations that the Obama administration did not dig deep enough into.
Nearly a year after Barrack Obama has left the White House, we still have many right wingers who not let him go. Some are so obsessed with him that they still believe that he is behind the scenes running things.
They act as if he is the Powers that be or the leader of the elites that are holding the American people down.
In all seriousness, I am not exaggerating at all when I tell you that some have stated that Obama is the Anti-Christ and he would never leave the White House and even after a year of being removed they still believe he is some how connected to powers that be.
Some have gone as far as to say that the powers that be are working with Obama behind the scenes to assassinate Trump so Obama can reclaim the White House and become a dictator.
These are some of the things that you actually read on right wing sites.
It's amazing to say the least. On the other hand it makes sense. When you take in consideration that for the past 8 years, right wing news and websites have repeatedly called Obama the Anti-Christ and a Muslim terrorist, it would no doubt lead to a Trump Presidency.
As a matter of fact, Trump fits more of the Anti-Christ model than Obama does with constant threatening of North Korea and his idea that he should rename the capital of Jerusalam. He is doing more to stir up World War 3 in one year than any President before him.
But of course, among right wingers, none of it is Trump's fault. After all, according to them, Obama is still the President.
In “I know that he will again serve his country as a fierce guardian of the law and model of integrity,” said President Trump
Some people believed President Trump would allow his hand picked FBI director , Christopher Wray, the ability to work unimpeded.
FBI Director Christopher Wray has promised the F.B.I.’s work would be based on the “facts, the law and the impartial pursuit of justice. Period.”
“He’s got to be the top cover for the agency,” Former FBI Official James F. Yacone said .
Yacone would also go on to say Mr. Wray has a difficult job and has to some how avoid being politicized.
Needless to say Christopher Wray is walking on tight rope. With all of the talk about Russia and the investigation that is going on, it's only a matter of time before he rubs Trump the wrong way. Even though President Trump hand picked Christopher Wray to replace James Comey, it is not out of the realm of possibility that Wray could find himself on the hot seat as well. Trump has no loyalty to anyone, not even his own hand picked staff.
Washington insiders are saying that Mr. Wray has done everything he can not to have a public dispute with Trump even as Trump continues to go after the FBI.
But at some point, Mr. Wray will have to defend the bureau.
It's only logical that FBI agents want to know that Christopher Wray is on their side.
