    The Justice Department begged a federal judge to not tell Fox News reporter James Rosen that it was tracking his telephone calls and emails in a probe regarding a national security leak. U.S. Attorney Ron Machen argued in 2010 that the traditional 30-day notice period did not apply to Rosen as Justice secretly monitored his Gmail account, according to new exhibits unsealed this week and disclosed by The Hill. “Where, as here, the government seeks such contents through a search warrant, no notice to the subscriber or customer of the e-mail account is statutorily required or necessary,” Machen wrote in...

    Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge said Friday that he would not support Donald Trump as Republican presidential nominee — and that "a real possibility" existed that he might not vote at all in next year's election if that is the case. "I think he is an embarrassment to the party," Ridge, who became the nation's first secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush in 2003, told Neil Cavuto on Fox News. "If he is the man who has the votes, then that's the way it will be." But when asked whether he would support the billionaire developer, Ridge...

    The day has finally arrived when our online media monopolies are blatantly censoring the news that Americans can see. Chrissy Clark writes at The Federalist: Facebook and YouTube are removing all content from their platforms that mentions the anti-Trump whistleblower's name, whom news outlets including RealClearInvestigations have publicly identified as CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. No law bans media outlets or any person but the intelligence community inspector general from making the whistleblower's name public. A Facebook spokesperson said the platform will remove "any and all mention of the potential whistleblower's name.

    Twitter has suspended or forced users to delete tweets naming the alleged whistleblower despite stating it is not company policy to do so. Several Twitter users said their accounts were suspended for tweeting out the name. One said Twitter later messaged him saying the suspension was “an error.” A Twitter spokeswoman told Breitbart: “Per the private information policy, any Tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules.” The spokeswoman said posting the name of the person isn’t against the rules. Screenshots from a number of users confirm...
  • #RealNews? Hemingway refuses to play along, defiantly uses the whistleblower’s name on FOX News

    WASHINGTON, DC — The discomfort in Howard Kurtz’ reaction was priceless as FOX News contributor, Mollie Hemingway, stunned her colleagues by actually using the whistleblower’s name during an appearance on FOX News’ Media Buzz Sunday.It’s difficult to understate how gutsy she was to go against the entire media establishment and refuse to play along, even if the whistleblower’s identity is already well known having been previously published in Paul Sperry’s article at Real Clear Investigations.

    Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist and a highly regarded independent journalist, created a stir during a panel discussion on FNC's Sunday morning program Media Buzz, hosted by Howie Kurtz.  At 11:19 A.M. E.T., as the program was being broadcast from Washington, D.C. without a delay, the topic of the "whistleblower," who set the ball rolling on the move to impeach the president because of the July 25 Trump-Zelensky phone call, came up. Mollie Hemingway: The New York Times did all but reveal his name in September and (unintelligble) all the details. . . Howie Kurtz: The New...

    It was a dirty job, but someone needed to do it. – All it took was a set of brass balls, which of course means that none of the male anchors or contributors on Fox or any other cable TV channel would ever dream of doing it. But hey, offsetting the cowardly acts of her male counterparts is why we have the great Mollie Hemingway around in the first place. Since the long-term illness removed Charles Krauthamer from the Fox Report’s nightly panel discussions, Hemingway has become the real prevailing star of that show, although Bret Baier doesn’t invite her...

    CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the “whistleblower” complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower” and advised to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” in connection to the so-called “whistleblower’s” identity, according to the report. The demand from Fox News management to staff includes some of the network’s most-high profile personalities, including Sean Hannity. Jeanine Pirro, host of Justice with Judge Jeanine, suggested on Friday...

    Fox News ^ | September 01 2019 | Andrew O'Reilly
    Republicans in California are crying foul over a new law that requires gubernatorial and presidential candidates to disclose tax returns in order to appear on 2020 primary ballots -- worried about voter turnout implications for their party in numerous races, even though the law is largely aimed at President Trump. The Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act – signed in late July by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom – was an obvious bid to compel Trump to make public his financial records if he wants his name on the ballot. But the president is unlikely to cave to the law’s provisos...

    This week on Fox News, host Neil Cavuto blasted President Donald Trump‘s criticism of the network in a monologue dubbed “Common Sense” that he delivered on Thursday. Cavuto claims that the president makes clear that “to fact check him is to be all but dead to him” and that “my job is to cover you, not fawn over you.” The host of the right-leaning network seemed to have had enough of Trump’s backsliding every time the network reports on something negative. “First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you.” he declared. “I don’t work for you.”

    For some reason, students at Goucher College in Towson, Maryland are drawing a perverse conclusion from the arrest of a black student there for faking a hate crime with racist graffiti.  The U.K. Daily Mail reports: Fynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old from Brunswick, Maine, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County.   His arrest came after graffiti aimed at black and Latino students was found on the second floor of a campus dorm[.] ... Thursday's graffiti depicted swastikas, the letters 'KKK' and appeared to include the last names of four black students, including Arthur....

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

    One thing we can all take comfort in is that their best days are behind them and the Fox/Newscorp brand is in the process of being utterly decimated. And the trajectory is downward, sharply so. Cord-cutting was already happening at an impressive pace before the NFL debacle - which FOX is heavily invested in Lots more cord-cutting, and lots of Murdoch properties losing money and influence badly. Almost nobody reading their periodicals. Their target audience has seemingly become solely well connected swamp-dwellers residing in the DC-NY corridor, the rest of you can go f--- yourselves. They want to be the...

Had a plan to sandbag Trump at the debates. Was caught red-handed when it was made public that he had created a made-for-TV anti-Trump script. Chris Wallace – Heads the Sunday program. Offspring of a communist. Shepard Smith – Furious fag who apparently answers to nobody. His show is basically an hour-long string of anti-Trump rants. That such nonsense is allowed to...

Cannot watch or listen to them any longer, in any capacity whatsoever. The place is run by Never-Trumpers, hence is just lousy with Never-Trumpers spouting their BS from morning until night. Still Russia, Russia, Russia 24/7, on the scroll, on the shows, out of their mouths. As if to show utter contempt for everyone and anyone who voted for The President of the United States of America - they even give Never-Trumpers their own...

    WASHINGTON — U.S. warships launched dozens of cruise missiles against a Syrian government-controlled air base Thursday in a major retaliatory strike against Syrian president Bashar Assad for chemical attacks against scores of civilians earlier this week. The missiles were launched by the Rota, Spain-based U.S. guided missile destroyers USS Ross and USS Porter from the Mediterranean Sea and were programmed to hit aircraft shelters, ammunition storage sites, radar sites, aircraft and fuel sites at Shayrat Air Base. That base is where Assad regime military aircraft that carried out the chemical strike launched from, President Donald Trump said in an address...
