Despite being allegedly compromised by a spy from China, Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is still serving on the House Intelligence Committee for some reason. Do you think Russia-crazed Congress members like Adam Schiff or even Nancy Pelosi would allow this to go on if Swalwell was a Republican? What happened to all the concern about threats to our democracy?

One of my guilty pleasures, movie-wise, is a 1992 film called "Universal Soldier." The movie's plot, such as it is, involves two rival soldiers who were killed in Vietnam and brought back to life in an experiment to create superhuman warriors. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliff wrote that China subjected members of China’s People’s Liberation Army to human experimentation to create “biologically enhanced” super soldiers.

TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, is planning to mount a legal and public relations offensive against U.S. President Donald Trump's ban on China-owned social media app. "ByteDance, the Chinese owner of short video hit TikTok, is preparing to escalate its legal and public relations battle against US President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban the app in the United States" Hong Kong based South China Morning Post revealed Monday.

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday morning that he picked Robert C. O'Brien as his new national security adviser. He currently serves as the special presidential envoy for hostage affairs. The move comes a few days after Trump dismissed John Bolton as his national security adviser. Trump said the two of them had too many disagreements on foreign policy.

The House Committee on Armed Services revealed an outline of its defense budget proposal on Monday. The contents of the plan set up a possible stalemate with the Senate and President Donald Trump. The proposal trims $17 billion from the $750 billion Trump requested for defense. The Senate defense bill sits right at $750 billion. I have a feeling the portion that does not allow any Pentagon funding towards a border wall will cause the most problems with Trump.

The private organization We Build the Wall began construction on a border wall in El Paso over the weekend. The group has raised over $20 million on GoFundMe. Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Fox & Friends the group aimed to build the wall near Mount Cristo Rey to fill a "ridiculously large gap" in that section. He claimed that "drug and human smugglers have been taking advantage of it."

Late Thursday afternoon Trump gave a speech and then answered questions from the press about policy regarding the caravan of illegal immigrants headed towards the U.S. I listened to it at the time, and here's the text of his remarks. After hearing the speech, I wasn't surprised by the spin given by this CNN headline about it: "Trump says he will restrict asylum, claims troops will shoot at rock throwers." Oh did he, now?

The Daily Caller's Luke Rosiak continues to do a great job with the story about Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz's former IT aide Irwan Awan and his family. The publication received a memo dated February 3, 2017, from Congress's top cop Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving to the Committee on House Administration (CHA). Irving and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Phil Kiko wrote that the House Democratic Caucus's server disappeared after it became evidence in the cybersecurity probe against Awan. The two men "concluded that the employees [Democratic systems administrator Imran Awan and his family] are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems and thereby members’ capacity to serve constituents.”
