Rudolph Giuliani to Head Cyber Security

BY GreatAgain

President-elect Trump is very pleased to announce former Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be sharing his expertise and insight as a trusted friend concerning private sector cyber security problems and emerging solutions developing in the private sector. This is a rapidly evolving field both as to intrusions and solutions and it is critically important to get timely information from all sources. Mr. Giuliani was asked to initiate this process because of his long and very successful government career in law enforcement and his now sixteen years of work providing security solutions in the private sector. Mr. Giuliani is the chairman of the global cyber security practice at Greenberg Traurig and the Chairman and CEO of Giuliani Partners, an international security consulting firm.

President-elect Donald Trump named former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani as an informal adviser on cybersecurity, according to the presidential transition office. Giuliani, who heads the cybersecurity consulting firm Giuliani Partners, will serve as an adviser on finding solutions to cyber incursions in the private sector and to advise the government on possible responses. "This is a rapidly evolving field both as to intrusions and solutions and it is critically important to get timely information from all sources," the transition said in a statement. "Mr. Giuliani was asked to initiate this process because of his long and very successful government career in law enforcement and his now sixteen years of work providing security solutions in the private sector." According to the transition, Trump will solicit "anecdotal information" from private sector executives on the challenges and solutions to cybersecurity challenges.

Mad Dog Mattis Conformation Hearing

WATCH THE FULL CONFERENCE HERE

BY BREITBART

The Republican-led Senate has approved a waiver to allow retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis to serve as incoming President Donald Trump’s secretary of defense. Although he only retired in 2013, Gen. Mattis easily cleared an early procedural hurdle after his confirmation hearing, during which he described Russia as a “principal” threat against the United States. Following the Senate Armed Services Committee’s bipartisan 24-3 vote, the full-chamber voted 81-17 vote to in favor of the waiver. The only committee members who voted against his waiver are Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Richard Blumenthal (CT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA).

Mike Pompeo confirmation hearing

BY BREITBART

During his confirmation hearing, Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS) said he would observe the proper laws forbidding enhanced interrogation of terror suspects and affirmed that he believes Russia is a threat to the United States. He also noted, however, that attempts to undermine President-elect Donald Trump plays right into the hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Pompeo also said he would support an extensive investigation into just what forms that “aggressive action” took during the 2016 campaign saying, “I will continue to pursue foreign intelligence with vigor no matter where the facts lead.” Said. “The internet,” Pompeo said, “is a borderless, global environment, easily and frequently exploited by sophisticated adversaries like China and Russia, as well as by less sophisticated adversaries like Iran and North Korea, non-state actors, terrorist groups, criminal organizations, and hackers.” The hearing was not without humor, either, as Arizona Republican John McCain, a graduate of the Naval Academy, joked that Pompeo’s education was “very poor” because he was a graduate of West Point.

Marine Le Pen

BY TIMES OF ISRAEL

Far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen on Thursday visited the New York headquarters of the incoming US president she openly admires, but his aides said she met neither Donald Trump nor his staff. The National Front leader was spotted having coffee at Trump Ice Cream Parlor on the lower-level lobby of Trump Tower, a skyscraper on Fifth Avenue, with three men including her partner Louis Aliot, the party’s vice president. Also sighted with Le Pen was George “Guido” Lombardi, an Italian businessman who lives in Trump Tower and was described in a Politico profile as Trump’s “self-professed contact to Europe’s far-right parties.” Asked by journalists if she was there to meet Trump, Le Pen refused to respond. “She is not meeting with anyone from our team,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told reporters. “No meetings. It’s a public building,” said Trump spokesman Sean Spicer. But several hours later, it was unclear whether Le Pen was still in the building or had left out of public view.

operatives seeking to derail Mr. Trump’s candidacy

BY BREITBART

Operatives are seeking to derail Mr. Trump’s Presidency. On Tuesday, CNN reported that President-elect Donald Trump had been briefed by the intelligence community on memos alleging there was communication between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. CNN suggested the existence of highly-compromising material targeting Trump which was compiled by a former British intelligence officer. The cable news network noted that while the former British intelligence officer’s work is credible, the specific allegations presented in the document have produced inconsistencies and have yet to be confirmed. Among the unverifiable claims, President-elect Trump is accused of participating in extremely graphic sexual fetishism in the Moscow Ritz-Carlton. While CNN did not publish the report, BuzzFeed did, knowing full well that the unverified memos would off a media frenzy of unsubstantiated rumors.

Elaine Chao, Donald Trump’s pick to serve as the next secretary of transportation, faces a Senate committee Wednesday as part of her confirmation process. Trump has proposed spending $1 trillion to upgrade roads, ports, bridges, public transportation and other transit systems. “My executive career in government began at the U.S. Department of Transportation. During my career, I have had the privilege of leading large, complex organizations in the public and non-profit sectors,” Chao wrote in prepared remarks ahead of the hearing. “In each of these positions, my goal has been to help others access opportunity and build better lives for themselves and their families by supporting policies that foster job creation and workforce competitiveness.” Chao, who was born in Taiwan, moved to the United States at age 8 and became a U.S. citizen at age 19. She is married to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he would not recuse himself from a vote on her confirmation.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations wrapped the first half of its confirmation hearing on Wednesday afternoon for President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of state. The former CEO of ExxonMobil got off to a rocky start at Wednesday’s hearing, engaging in a tense exchange with Sen. Marco Rubio because Tillerson refused to call Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal.” The Florida senator said he found Tillerson’s refusal “discouraging,” since Putin’s criminal status is “globally accepted.” Though he did not support Rubio’s statements, Tillerson took a strong-line stance against Russian interests. “The leadership of Russia has a plan, it is a geographic plan … to re-establish its role in the global world order,” he said. “They believe they deserve a rightful role in the global world order because they are a nuclear power.”
