In other news, business spending on equipment is slowing and existing home sales are at a three-year low.

In related news, JP Morgan now estimates the economy will grow at an annualized rate of just 1.5 percent in the first quarter.

Finally, federal authorities have arrested and charged a Coast Guard officer who allegedly created a hit-list of Democrats, members of the media, and other liberals to kill.

His plans were detailed in a court filing this morning.

Prosecutors wrote that Hasson had begun the “process of targeting specific victims.” Last February, he searched the internet for the “most liberal senators” and also asked, “Do senators have ss (Secret Service) protection” and “Are supreme court justices protected,” according to the court filing.

Hasson’s list of prominent Democrats included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and presidential hopefuls Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, authorities.

The list, created in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, also included mentions of John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and Joe Scarborough and CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Van Jones.

    Just think..this is the guy dumb enough to get caught. How many are still out there, planning their crimes right now?

  • And the idiot researched all of this on his work computer, which is why he got caught. We’re lucky that racist murderers are usually morons.

    And of course the whiner in chief has said nothing about this murderous plot. Can you imagine the outrage if he had been planning to kill Republicans?
