Betsy Devos confirmation hearing

WATCH THE FULL CONFERENCE HERE

BY BREITBART

Senate Democrats on the chamber’s Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee pressed Betsy DeVos during her confirmation hearing Tuesday evening with questions about her financial contributions, her knowledge of federal education laws, and her intentions toward the nation’s public schools. Democrats complained that committee members had not yet received the proper paperwork on DeVos from the Office of Government Ethics prior to the start of the hearing, and made every effort to protest to committee chairman Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) that they should be permitted another round of questions. The senators also presented DeVos as having a mission to end federal funding to public schools through “privatization,” i.e., allowing parents to utilize taxpayer-funded vouchers to “follow the child” to a private or religious school of their choosing. DeVos responded that she believed in “great” public schools and intended to support all schools that are providing children with a good education based on “outcomes.”

WATCH THE FULL CONFERENCE HERE

BY THE HILL

Trump reportedly celebrated the makeup of his incoming administration during Tuesday's festivities at the Andrew W. Mellon auditorium, where about 200 foreign diplomats out of roughly 500 guests overall were expected to attend. The president-elect crowed about Pence's role as his vice president, noting other candidates "maybe wouldn't have worked out like Mike." Trump also joked about the confirmation hearings for Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil Corp. CEO who is his choice for secretary of State. "I think it's tougher than he thought," he quipped of Tillerson. "He's led this charmed life. He goes into a country, takes the oil, goes into another country." "It's tough dealing with these politicians, right?" Trump asked Tillerson, who was in attendance. "He's going to be so incredible." Tuesday's event was organized to be Trump's "first fingerprint on the global canvas of social democracy and outreach,” Thomas Barrack, Trump’s presidential inaugural committee chairman, told the Journal.

Ryan Zinke Confirmation Hearing

WATCH THE FULL CONFERENCE HERE

BY BREITBART

President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for interior secretary says the nation’s vast federal lands should be used for a variety of purposes, from hiking, hunting, fishing and camping to harvesting timber and mining for coal and other energy sources. In prepared remarks for his confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Montana Rep. Ryan Zinke said his father and the Boys Scouts taught him the principles of environmental stewardship and the importance of public access to public lands. Zinke, an admirer of President Theodore Roosevelt, said management of federal lands should be done under a “multiple-use” model set forth by Gifford Pinchot, a longtime Roosevelt associate and the first chief of the U.S. Forest Service. Zinke also pledged to tackle an estimated $12 billion backlog in maintenance and repair at national parks, saying parks and other public lands should be a key part of Trump’s infrastructure improvement plan.

ROGER STONE SURVIVES ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT

BY INFOWARS

The renowned Republican operative says he’s usually very healthy, but became violently ill unexpectedly several weeks ago. “So I ultimately went to the doctors - my own personal physician. They conducted extensive blood tests. Those blood tests were passed on to CDC.” Stone told radio host Alex Jones. “The general consensus is that I was poisoned,” Stone says. “I was poisoned with, they now say, a substance that may have been polonium or had the characteristics of polonium. This made me exceedingly ill.“ Polonium-210 is a radioactive substance that releases extremely harmful alpha particles throughout the body producing cancer-causing free radicals. It has been used in numerous high profile assassinations, including that of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, and was suspected in the death of former PLO leader Yassar Arafat.

Inappropriate Sexual Conduct

BY THE DAILY BEAST

Give me a break - With three days to go before his inauguration, Donald Trump is being sued for defamation by a woman who accused him of sexually inappropriate conduct, according to attorney-to-the-stars Gloria Allred, who announced the lawsuit at a press conference this afternoon. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on season five of The Apprentice, first came forward in October to accuse the GOP nominee of sexual assault. Following her short stint on the reality show, Zervos said she approached Mr. Trump about job opportunities in 2007, but instead of being offered employment, Zervos claimed, Trump groped her. “Ms. Zervos was ambushed by Mr. Trump on more than one occasion,” the complaint states. “Mr. Trump suddenly, and without her consent, kissed her on her mouth repeatedly; he touched her breast; and he pressed his genitals up against her. Ms. Zervos never consented to any of this disgusting touching.” lol
