US existing home sales tumble to three-year low

Source: CNBC

U.S. home sales tumbled to their lowest level in three years in December and house price increases slowed sharply, suggesting a further loss of momentum in the housing market.

The National Association of Realtors said on Tuesday existing home sales declined 6.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.99 million units last month. That was the lowest level since November 2015.

November's sales pace was revised slightly up to 5.33 million unit from the previously reported 5.32 million units.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast existing home sales falling 1.0 percent to a rate of 5.25 million units in December.

Does Tulsi Gabbard want to win the primaries?

Among Democrats, 93% blame Trump/Republicans for the shutdown. 5% blame Democrats.

Yesterday Gabbard blamed both sides while talking to Jake Tapper.

While I haven't seen no polling on Assad, I think it's safe to assume that Democrats oppose Pro-Russia dictators who gas children. Yet Tulsi Gabbard expressed no regrets yesterday for loving him.

I would like to know whether you think Tulsi Gabbard wants to become the Democratic nominee, or is she trying to achieve something else?

Most Republicans support DACA anyway. Trump's offer is not a good deal for Dems

There's nothing to lose for Republicans in this deal.

Trump and the Examiner uncover Czechoslovakian invasion at US border (and prayer rugs)

President Donald Trump is being mocked for tweeting a dubious claim that “prayer rugs” were found along the border. His source is a Washington Examiner article that also warned, quoting one rancher who didn’t provide evidence, that
“Czechoslovakians” are crossing the border for some reason.

Russians tried to hack the DNC days after the midterms, Democrats claim

Source: CNN

The Democratic National Committee claims that in the days after the 2018 midterm elections it was likely targeted by a group of Russian intelligence hackers, according to court documents filed overnight.

Dozens of DNC email addresses were targeted in a spear-phising campaign on November 14, 2018, the DNC alleges, adding that the contents and timing of the emails suggest that the campaign was tied to the Russian hacking group known as "Cozy Bear." The DNC adds, "it is probable that Russian intelligence again attempted to unlawfully infiltrate DNC computers in November 2018."

The Democrats said there is no indication in the court filing that November's alleged hacking attempt was successful.
