    I’m surprised.Historically, when have socialists ever been enemies of press freedom?Get excited for “Reliable Sources” this weekend on CNN, when stalwart media defender Brian Stelter will respond to this troubling precedent from a left-wing Democrat by ignoring it. [W]hen Ocasio-Cortez returned to the district for a Bronx community meeting with prominent healthcare activist Ady Barkan last Tuesday, her campaign manager, Vigie Ramos Rios, later told the Chronicle, she was “mobbed” by reporters, “even though we said no Q&A and no one-on-one [interviews].”According to Ramos Rios and campaign spokesman Corbin Trent, that unwanted attention led to a press ban both...

    Democratic congressional Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended banning press from a public town hall this week, saying the move was meant to protect residents of vulnerable communities. Ocasio-Cortez on Friday responded to a tweet from Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim, who wrote that the candidate “is in for a rough time on Capitol Hill -- where reporters roam freely at all hours of the day and night -- if this is her attitude toward the press.” The reporter also tweeted that the campaign should have made the event private, rather than making it public and stopping the press from attending.

    Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe contrasted the news media’s treatment of his organization’s undercover video investigations with that of former White House aide Omarosa Maginault-Newman’s secretly recorded audio. He offered his remarks in a Tuesday interview with Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak for SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. O’Keefe examined the news media’s handling of Manigault-Newman’s surreptitious audio recordings of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and her allegations against President Donald Trump. “I can’t hear anyone [in the news media] talking about the selective editing,” said O’Keefe. “I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a bit...

    Hillary Clinton was cheered Saturday in Central Park when she took the stage as part of a star-studded summer festival of conversation, music and food. The former Democratic presidential candidate, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York told a crowd at the OZY Fest that she'll be tweeting in coming days, helping to organize transportation for immigrants trying to reunite with their families after crossing the U.S. border illegally and being separated. She was interviewed by Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of the Emerson Collective, a nonprofit advocate of liberal causes that organized the two-day festival in the park's...

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing 'aid and comfort' to the enemy. Flake's choice of words evoked the Constitution's definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland.

    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,...

The Union forces around in and around the fort are about equal to Early's force. As the attack develops, additional reinforcements from two Union Corps arrive on scene and stall Early's assault. The next day,skirmishing continues, but Early has decided any further attacks will only result in high casualties with little chance of success. He begins withdrawing his forces back into Virginia.

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rejected calls of civility in a recent interview, calling for “strength and resolve” to resist President Trump. The Guardian reports that when asked about some on the left becoming “uncivil” recently, she responded: “‘Oh, give me a break,’ she erupts, eyes widening into indignation. ‘Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met with resolve and strength. And if some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake; their futures are at stake. That is that ridiculous concept of bothsideism.'”

    New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said late Thursday that she doesn’t think President Trump “knows how to deal with a girl” who is from the Bronx. During an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Ocasio-Cortez spoke about her win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in the 14th district’s Democratic primary. Colbert, however, asked Ocasio-Cortez about the president’s tweet regarding Crowley’s loss. “Well you know, the president is from Queens, and with all due respect - half of my district is from Queens – I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from...

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that New York Rep. Joe Crowley "got his a– kicked" in his Democratic primary Tuesday by a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter "who had a lot of energy." "Last night, we had a great evening," Trump told a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is facing Democratic incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November. "We watched that television — and we were winning left and right," Trump said. "They didn't know what the hell happened.

    Nancy Pelosi sits in a black-leather booth at Americana, a burger bistro in downtown Des Moines, radiating optimism. "We're in a very good place," she says of Democrats' odds in November. Special-election results suggest more than 100 seats in the House of Representatives are in play, and Democrats need less than two dozen to regain a majority. At the prospect of a victory that could check Trump's power – and, Pelosi expects, reinstall her as House speaker – she bangs a piece of cutlery, hard, on the table. "The gavel," she says. "The gavel makes all the difference in the...

"The response to my candidacy has been incredible, and we’ve been picking up momentum and supporters every day, but just not fast enough," Gronik said in a statement.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday he's not comfortable with a Trump administration policy that separates children and parents at the southern border, as House Republicans, under increasing pressure to address the humanitarian crisis, raced to finish a new immigration bill. "We don't want kids to be separated from their parents," Ryan said, adding that the policy is being dictated by a court ruling that prevents children who enter the country illegally from being held in custody for long periods. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi pushed back on that assessment, saying that President Donald Trump could "stop...
