    Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” fame says there is a simple reason why President Donald Trump was victorious in the 2016 election: “He understands who’s watching and he understands what’s happening.” America’s “everyman” recently sat down with Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, for a wide-ranging interview for the website’s “Sunday Special.” He used a story regarding his mikeroweWORKS Foundation to explain why Mr. Trump — and not Sen. Bernard Sanders or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — now resides in the White House. Mr. Rowe said that he jokingly called out the trio when his CNN show...

    Weeks after Maryland State Police and federal agents seized reporting files from a former Washington Times journalist’s home, a Homeland Security agent checked the materials out of the police evidence room for an hour, according to logs that shine new light on a case that has raised First Amendment concerns. The custody logs don’t state why the reporting materials were removed from evidence Sept. 3, about a month after they were seized from reporter Audrey Hudson’s home during a search in an unrelated investigation of her husband. But they do show that the Homeland Security agent checked out files and...

    Shortly after President Donald Trump vowed to “do something” about the “cunning” media who he once again called “the enemy” of the American people, CNN announced on air it had been barred from today’s White House briefing. CNN reports New York Times, Los Angles Times, and Politico also were told they were not on the White House list, for today’s off-camera briefing. Breitbart, Fox News, Washington Times, and One America News Network were among those given entry, CNN reported. Today’s off-camera gaggle is distinct from the on-camera White House Press Briefing led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, which is not...
  • Stop Obama’s Internet giveaway [Washington Times]

    Russia, China and Iran don’t have a First Amendment, and their governments regularly clamp down on free speech. So why would we want to end American protection of the open Internet and transfer it to Moscow, Beijing and Tehran instead? On Oct. 1, the Obama administration plans to end the U.S. Government contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. Doing so would kick off a transition that could irreparably harm the open Internet, leading to censorship abroad that could, quite realistically, lead to censorship right here in the United States. Under this transition of Internet...
  • Down the Memory Hole: In 2008 Obama campaign booted 3 newspapers off his campaign plane

    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    It has a fine walnut stock, a blue finish and a very simple inscription that reads “Albee to Lawton.” But this 19th-century rifle has become the most expensive single firearm ever sold at auction according to the Rock Island Auction Company, which recently sent the historic piece to a new destiny with an undisclosed buyer. The price: $1,265,000. “Other guns have sold higher as a pair, but no other single firearm surpasses this new world record. It was an honor to be entrusted with an American treasure,” said Kevin Hogan, president of the Illinois-based company. The rifle itself was a...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is blasting the way the country chooses presidential party nominees as “corrupt” and “crooked” as he grapples with the potential of a brokered convention that he risks losing. Speaking to thousands packed in a frigid airport hangar in western New York on Sunday, Trump ripped the byzantine fight over delegates at the heart of his party’s nominating process. He argued anew that the person who wins the most votes in the primary process should automatically be the GOP nominee. “What they’re trying to do is subvert the movement with crooked shenanigans,” said Trump, comparing his...

The columnist says that other media outlets, columnists and reporters knew about the affairs, but refused to run the story. The National Enquirer has caused a media firestorm after publishing a cover story about GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz and a series of alleged...

    After the Washington Times quickly disassociated from him "for saying a scandal may be true", Johnson seemed to still be a class act. He tweeted that he respected them and had enjoyed working with them. He did not understand though why they would do this via Twitter instead of a phone call or even an email. However, now there are attempts to smear and discredit him, claiming they have not had a relationship with him in over a year which he soon replied to providing proof of being paid just last month.

At a campaign event in Iowa Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton told the crowd the next president may have to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices. When one attendee mentioned Mr. Obama as a contender, she seemed excited by the recommendation.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich leads GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump by 5 points in Mr. Kasich’s home state, according to a poll released on the eve of the March 15 primary there. Mr. Kasich had the support of 40 percent of likely GOP primary voters in Ohio in the Monmouth University poll released Monday, followed by Mr. Trump at 35 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas was at 15 percent and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida was at 5 percent. “The Ohio race is tight, but with Rubio floundering in Florida, Kasich could potentially bolster his standing as the establishment’s...

    Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said Wednesday that Donald Trump’s call to ban most Muslims from the United States would weaken the nation and “doesn’t represent what we are.” “This is not what leads to a strong America,” Mr. Kasich said during an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. “We have never been strong by focusing on things designed to divided us.” -snip- Mr. Kasich also said that he is encouraged by how moderate Muslims have come out against the Islamic State terror group, or ISIS. “They have condemned aggressively the attacks all over the word,”...

    Drudge Report editor, Breitbart News contributor, and Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt said establishment Republicans are "looking for a third-tier person" to challenge Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the Tuesday edition of the Fox News Channel's "Special Report." Hurt said, "Sure, endorsements are important, but I don't know that getting member of Congress to endorse your campaign at this point does much good, and I agree with what Charles is saying, this idea that they're going to attack Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for missing votes, in a body that they're all ridiculing is sort of insane, and...

    “[We] thought it would strengthen Obama and it didn’t have this effect,” he told the Associated Press in an interview. The award so early in his term appeared to take the Obama White House by surprise, and Mr. Lundestad said U.S. officials privately asked if a Nobel Prize-winner had ever skipped the awards ceremony. Normally the Nobel committee’s decision regarding recipients remains private, and Mr. Lundestad’s frank and revealing remarks regarding internal decisions have caused a stir in Norway, detailing the politicking and compromises that have gone into determining the annual laureate. “Even many of Obama’s supporters thought that the...
