Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Feb. 18 ““ Na­tion­al Journ­al today in­tro­duced its new di­git­al Doc­u­ment Lib­rary, a one-stop search­able data­base of tens of thou­sands of doc­u­ments ag­greg­ated from a wide range of policy and polit­ics sources.

The new Na­tion­al Journ­al Doc­u­ment Lib­rary is a grow­ing col­lec­tion of re­search re­ports, testi­mon­ies, white pa­pers, and press re­leases up­dated in near real-time from the web­sites of hun­dreds of sources that in­clude glob­al gov­ern­ment agen­cies, think tanks, trade as­so­ci­ations, and aca­dem­ic and cor­por­ate in­sti­tu­tions.

“With thou­sands of doc­u­ments on polit­ics and policy from a range of au­thor­it­at­ive sources, the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary truly sets Na­tion­al Journ­al apart from its free com­pet­it­or set and of­fers a valu­able new tool for sub­scribers who fol­low is­sues in depth,” said Jes­sica Perry, vice pres­id­ent and gen­er­al man­ager of di­git­al op­er­a­tions for Na­tion­al Journ­al.  

Na­tion­al Journ­al mem­bers and sub­scribers are giv­en full ac­cess to the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary and its ad­vanced search and alert­ing fea­tures. Non-mem­bers and vis­it­ors to Na­tion­al­Journ­ are giv­en lim­ited ac­cess to the lib­rary.  Na­tion­al Journ­al worked with noodls, a real-time glob­al in­form­a­tion ag­greg­at­or, to cre­ate the lib­rary. 

Vis­it­ors to the free site can ac­cess the Doc­u­ment Lib­rary a num­ber of ways, in­clud­ing through Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s policy ver­tic­als (En­ergy, Tech, De­fense, and Health Care), and through the search func­tion. Mem­bers and sub­scribers can also ac­cess the data­base dir­ectly at ht­tp://­tion­al­journ­­rary.

Newt Gringrich is actively positioning himself as a possible VP nominee for Donald Trump, according to National Review. After a New York Times piece mentioned him as a possible running mate, he said, "It is an honor to be mentioned. We need a new Contract with America to outline a 100-day plan to take back Washington from the lobbyists, bureaucrats, unions, and leftists. After helping in 1980 with Reagan and 1995 as speaker I know we have to move boldly and decisively before the election results wear off and the establishment starts fighting us. That is my focus." Meanwhile, Trump told CNN he'd be "interested in vetting" John Kasich as well.

"House Democrats are stepping up pressure on Republicans to advance legislation addressing Puerto Rico’s worsening debt crisis by issuing a report arguing that austerity cuts can’t be sustained and have made the island more vulnerable to the mosquito-borne Zika virus." Democrats on the House Natural Resources Committee released a report yesterday that argued "further sharp reductions in government spending can’t be a part of a legislative solution"—especially with a rainy season boosting the mosquito population and stressing an island health system already struggling to deal with the Zika virus.
