WASHINGTON TIMES — Meteorologist Joe Bastardi had a decidedly unscientific term for the effort to link Thursday's frigid winter storm to human-caused climate change: "witchcraft." "This is flat out insanity and deception now," Mr. Bastardi said Thursday in a tweet. "To tell the public that events that have occurred countless times before with no climate change attribution, is now just that, is not science, [it's] witchcraft."... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Two top House Republicans have introduced a resolution supporting the Iranian people and condemning the regime in Tehran after a week of street protests that have resulted in more than 20 deaths across the country. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and House Foreign Affairs Committee Ed Royce said Friday the House will vote Tuesday on the measure, which comes as the Trump White House is trying to increase international pressure on Tehran over its handling of the demonstrations....

NEWSMAX — Voters believe President Donald Trump has moved to the right since taking office, according to the website FiveThirtyEight. Before entering the Oval Office, Trump took a combination of liberal and conservative positions, FiveThirtyEight said. It noted he was steadfastly against illegally immigration, but supported infrastructure spending. He was against gun control but supported LGBT rights.... (more)

ALICIA POWE — The Justice Department finally has decided to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee, agreeing to provide records that could reveal whether the salacious Trump-Russia "dossier" was used to justify FBI surveillance of Trump campaign officials.... (more)

NEWSMAX — A research firm that compiled a dossier of sometimes salacious information about U.S. President Donald Trump's contacts with Russians failed to block a congressional bid to see its banking records. U.S. District Judge Richard Leon in Washington agreed on Thursday that information sought by the House Intelligence Committee is pertinent to its probe of Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election. The judge rejected Fusion GPS's argument that disclosure of the data could reveal secrets about the firm's clients and devastate its business.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Former FBI Director James Comey's decision to leak memos of his interactions with President Trump could come back to haunt him in a challenge to his New York bar membership. Ty Clevenger, a lawyer who filed a grievance against Mr. Comey, said in a letter Friday to the New York lawyers' disciplinary committee that if the fired director ended up leaking classified information it should bolster the case against him....

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — I have no problem with President Trump's tweet on nuclear weapons. Of course, many others reacted with pathetic uproar. The perpetually enraged liberal think-tanker Neera Tanden led the way in attempting to persuade U.S. enemies that we are psychologically weak.... (more)

MICHAEL OBERNDORF — A whole lot of us Deplorables, who had the unmitigated temerity to vote for the interloper, Donald Trump, have served in capacities which required us to take an oath to uphold the Constitution and protect it not only from foreign enemies, but domestic ones as well. Over the 229 years that have elapsed since the Constitution was ratified in June of 1788, we have endured and overcome numerous attempts by foreign nations to defeat us militarily, and some economically. However, domestic threats have been rare. Other than the occasional traitor, we have had no serious, well organized threats internally, the Civil War being the obvious exception, until the communists. However, the Soviet Union collapsed, and the "mainstream" media declared the Cold War over and communism defeated, and thus, all the communists in the U.S.A., aka, Stalin's Useful Idiots, magically disappeared. Poof.... (more)

PETER LEMISKA — On December 25th, the New York Times published an editorial by liberal columnist Paul Krugman. It was entitled "America Is Not Yet Lost," and it was a message wrapped in hope, but filled with hate. Still fuming about the 2016 election and its aftermath, Krugman ranted that Donald Trump has proven himself unfit for office -- morally and intellectually, and that the Republican Party is composed of "cynical apparatchiks, willing to sell out every principle -- and every shred of dignity -- as long as donors get big tax cuts."...

Al Franken after a series of allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct. The former Minnesota lieutenant governor took her oath at 11:04 a.m. Central time to be followed by a reenactment in the historic former Senate chamber. Smith becomes the 22nd female senator, a record number of women serving at the same time in the 100-member body.... (more)

HAARETZ.COM — In the summer of 2009, as the forces of the Iranian government brutally repressed mass demonstrations protesting a stolen election, the United States sent the people of Iran an unmistakable message. The man regarded as an international beacon of hope offered them no encouragement.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — The New York Times' Russian Reset continues. My weekend column argued that the Democrats and the media are scrambling to pull together a new origination account of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. The original origination account has become a political liability because it centered on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser who featured prominently in the so-called Steele dossier....

LEO HOHMANN — Pictures and videos coming out of Iran are starting to look more like a full-on revolution than a protest movement, but American news agencies continue to be slow to react, describing the historic protests as mostly about the country's weak economy and chastising President Trump for cheering them on. That's woefully under-reporting the depth of what is really going on in Iran, say experts on the country's history and current political environment.... (more)

BEN SHAPIRO — Last week, former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice -- she of the infamously shifting Benghazi explanations -- published an op-ed in the New York Times dedicated to the proposition that Trump's "America first" foreign policy has "relinquish[ed] the nation's moral authority in these difficult times." According to Rice, Trump has shifted away from seizing "opportunities to expand prosperity, freedom and security" around the globe.... (more)

THE HILL — Republicans on key congressional committees say they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI's probe of Hillary Clinton's email server. For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken when the former secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server, lawmakers and investigators told The Hill....

PATRICK BUCHANAN — What caused the FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016, which evolved into the criminal investigation that is said today to imperil the Trump presidency? As James Comey's FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller have, for 18 months, failed to prove Donald Trump's "collusion" with the Kremlin, what was it, in mid-2016, that justified starting this investigation?...
