House Republicans, along with 33 Democrats, voted today to roll back much of the 2010 Dodd-Frank bank regulatory law. Already passed by the Senate, the rollback legislation will now go to President Trump to be signed into law.
Passed in response to the 2008 financial crisis, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 attempted to reign in banks from recklessly adhering to the rules placed upon them in the 1990s by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.
Today’s move toward deregulation is not comprehensive. The largest banks, those with over $250 billion in assets, are not affected—however this includes fewer than ten banks nationwide. The Trump administration and congressional Republicans have made clear this is not the endgame; there is more untangling of the misguided 2010 federal overreach to come…
No violence in the West Bank. No violence in Jordan. No protests in the Arab Street. Only Hamas. Only a terrorist group that urged its militants to attack Israel. Terrorists who refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist. And this is how the NYT covers it. Shame. pic.twitter.com/5UFHiPP8va

Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania, in coordination with Israel, today blocked a joint EU statement criticizing the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, Israeli officials and European diplomats told me.
Behind the scenes: The initiative to publish the statement was led by France and several other EU member states. Israeli officials say the goal was to present to the U.S. a common position against the move by all 28 member states, and to embarrass and isolate the Trump administration ahead of Monday’s ceremony.
According to European diplomats and Israeli officials, the draft statement circulated in European capitals had three points:

Note: Austria is also bucking the EU on this issue.
Pirro declared that the United States was “back” on top as a “dominant regional player after the Obama years.”
“Trump has reassured the world that his word is worth more than any former U.S. presidents like Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama, who all promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem, but didn’t deliver,” said Pirro. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino joined Tucker Carlson on Friday to discuss the stunning revelation the the Obama DOJ had a spy working inside the opposition candidate’s campaign. There is now evidence that a spy was working inside the Trump campaign and reporting back to the Obama DOJ. Dan Bongino said there was likely more than one spy inside the Trump campaign.

When I worked as a CIA officer, playing politics wasn’t part of the job – not for me, not for any of my colleagues. But after watching Democratic senators play to the cameras at the confirmation hearing Tuesday on Gina Haspel’s nomination to become CIA director, I was disappointed to see politics was their major focus.
Haspel is a brilliant intelligence officer with 33 years at the CIA. She has devoted most of her adult life to protecting our nation and won awards for her outstanding performance. Like all of us at the CIA, she’s never carried out her responsibilities as a Democrat or a Republican – but as an American patriot.
But if viewers were hoping for an adult discussion at Haspel’s televised confirmation hearing about how to best protect our nation from terrorists and hostile foreign nations, they got something quite different.
Americans watching the hearing were treated to over two hours of bumbling, partisan attacks that left listeners with one clear takeaway: Democrats were focused on the sins of the past, not of the threats of the future. Moreover, they showed no interest in helping fix what is clearly a broken CIA.
Americans watching the Haspel hearing were treated to over two hours of bumbling, partisan attacks that left listeners with one clear takeaway: Democrats were focused on the sins of the past, not of the threats of the future.
In other words, the Democratic senators on the Intelligence Committee who fancy themselves as progressive thinkers ended up looking like a bunch of circus clowns who missed the train ride home. Their inane questions and partisan motivations ended up embarrassing not just themselves but the party and the nation. Continue reading and watch video at foxnews.com.

President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy.
Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own terms. It did not stop Iran from enriching uranium; it did not stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, eventually; and it did not stop Iran’s global aggression.
In fact, the Iran deal was not even a deal at all.
It was never signed by any of the parties (the U.S., Iran, France, the UK, Germany, China, and Russia). It was unclear about crucial subjects like ballistic missiles, because the “deal” was described differently by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and by the UN Security Council Resolutions that were meant to implement it. And, crucially, it was never sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
