    As the shooter John Hinckley returns to life outside of imprisonment, it worth looking back at every thing the media got wrong that day. At 2:27 p.m. on March 30, 1981, Secret Service agents were escorting President Ronald Reagan and White House staffers from a speech before the AFL-CIO at the Washington Hilton Hotel. About 100 people waited by the side entrance of the hotel to see the president as he walked to his limousine, which was parked about 12 feet away on T Street NW. Wearing a blue suit, Reagan smiled and waved, pausing for a split second as...

    Norma McCorvey, the anonymous plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the United States, reshaping the nation’s social and political landscapes and inflaming one of the most divisive controversies of the past half-century, died on Saturday in Katy, Tex. She was 69. Ms. McCorvey died of heart failure in an assisted-living home, said Joshua Prager, a New York journalist who has written about her for Vanity Fair and is working on a book about the Roe v.

    ABC10, KXTV ^ | Feb. 17, 2017 | Staff
    Private contractors at the Oroville Dam have had to fire some of their workforce because of issues ranging from positive drug tests to violating the state's Department of Water Resources' social media policy. There has also been turnover because of unqualified workers. Private contractors hired to work on the dam have to vet their own employees, according to DWR spokesman Chris Orrock, who noted that no state employees have been let go because of these reasons. Crews are being brought in as needed, as space is tight, DWR Acting Director Bill Croyle said.

    Dr. Sebastian Gorka has a PhD, big vocabulary, huge knowledge base and even a British accent -- all the markers of an elitist establishment, if not leftist, thinker. But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump. The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.

    In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches. The change means that far more officials will be searching through...

    Lindsey Graham won't be at President Donald Trump's Charleston visit Friday. But Trump probably won’t mind. South Carolina’s senior senator said he had planned to attend Trump’s first visit to the Palmetto State as president, when he visits the North Charleston Boeing plant. But instead, Graham will be in Washington, where the Senate is set to hold a potentially close vote on Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency, Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt. “I’m very disappointed I cannot attend Boeing’s celebration of the 787-10 today with President Trump,” Graham said in a statement. “I am honored President Trump...

    Zealandia – a new continent submerged in the southwest Pacific – is a step closer to being recognised, the authors of a new scientific paper claim. A paper published in GSA Today, the journal of the Geological Society of America, contends that the vast, continuous expanse of continental crust, which centres on New Zealand, is distinct enough to constitute a separate continent. Despite the obvious question of how something so large could be previously undiscovered, the paper’s authors argue that even “the large and the obvious in natural science can be overlooked”. Zealandia covers nearly 5m square km (1.9m sq...

    Donald Trump entered the East Room on Thursday reeling from a week filled with resignations, withdrawals and continued questions surrounding his campaign's contacts with Russia. What followed was an hour-long, full-throated attack on Trump's favorite foil: the media. “Many of our nation's reporters will not tell you the truth,” Trump said. “The press honestly is out of control,” Trump said. “The level of dishonesty is out of control,” Trump said. And that was before he even took a single question! It was a return for Trump to what worked for him during the course of the 2016 campaign: A circuslike...

    The CEO of Twitter seemingly believes America is currently experiencing civil unrest comparable to the Arab Spring, a series of revolutionary protests, coups and civil wars in the Arab world a few years ago. While the social media company appears to be treading water after a rough past few months, which includes a number of high-level staff departures and a sinking valuation, Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey sees his platform’s influence in society remaining largely the same, if not growing. “A lot of the same patterns we’ve seen during the Iranian Green Revolution and the Arab Spring,” Dorsey said Wednesday at...

    I. The Main Stream Media’s Victory Lap The Deep State has done its dirty work, getting rid of Michael Flynn, the now-former national security adviser to President Trump. And so the MSM, having taken direction—even dictation—from the Deep State, is moving in for the kill. The ultimate target, of course, is Trump himself. The Washington Post, which has long hated Republicans, and Trump in particular, is leading the charge. On February 15, seven of the eight top stories on its online home page were anti-Flynn, anti-Trump—and, of course, pro-MSM. Let’s take a closer look: The Post seemed particularly proud of...

Jeremy Scahill, a journalist who's appeared frequently on "Real Time with Bill Maher," posted on Twitter that he won't appear as a panelist Friday because of Yiannopoulos and what he represents. "He has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes. There is no value in 'debating' him," Scahill tweeted. Appearing on Maher's show will give Yiannopoulos a major platform for "his racist, anti-immigrant campaign," wrote Scahill, co-founding editor of The Intercept news website. In an email Wednesday...

It was Donald’s,” a Trump family friend, stylist Phillip Bloch, told the magazine. “Truthfully, it’s a lot to cope with.” Since Inauguration Day, Melania has spent almost all her time hiding inside the “gilded cage” of the family’s lavish, $100 million Trump Tower penthouse...

Garcia is listed as an illegal immigrant from Mexico. The case began on February 6 when Garcia met with an undercover ATF agent to purchase the grenade launcher and three AK-47 rifles at a price of $5,000.

Don Boudreaux of George Mason University analyzes this claim in detail here, where he points out that innovation and automation are more likely culprits. But whether the jobs are lost as a result of international trade or domestic commerce, his most important point is that this is creative destruction.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NATIONAL security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, was forced to resign on Monday night as a result of getting caught lying about whether he discussed sanctions in a December telephone call with a Russian diplomat. The only reason the public learned about Flynn’s lie is because someone inside the U.S. government violated the criminal law by leaking the contents of Flynn’s intercepted communications. In the spectrum of crimes involving the leaking of classified information, publicly revealing the contents of SIGINT — signals intelligence — is one of the most serious felonies. Journalists (and all other nongovernmental citizens) can be...

    Princeton is under renewed pressure to rename an institution honoring President Woodrow Wilson after activists branded him a “white supremacist”. Campus activists made another attempt to scrub Wilson’s name from the university’s School of Public and International Affairs (pictured above) over his views on race. He agreed to re-segregate large parts of the federal government, expressed sympathy for the Ku Klux Klan and regularly worked to exclude or dissuade black people from public life. As a Vox explainer notes, although the 1910s had very different racial norms to today, Wilson’s attitude was exceptional even then. However, despite the pressure, Princeton...

    Femininity, in all its forms, is undoubtedly undervalued. For this reason, all displays or expressions of femininity are an adamant and powerful form of social disobedience. Still, the Women’s Marches were not overwhelmingly defiant or angry responses to the lack of autonomy and power that feminine-identifying individuals have in this oppressive patriarchal society. Instead, the tone of these gatherings were celebratory. The purpose of these marches seemed to be uplifting feminine identities on the basis of their being white and cisgender. Altogether too often, the assertion of femininity by white, cisgender individuals is based in white supremacy and transphobia. These...

    Top White House aide and policy adviser, Stephen Miller, sidestepped repeated chances during Sunday news shows to publicly defend embattled National Security Adviser Michael Flynn following reports that he engaged in conversations with Russian diplomat(s) about U.S. sanctions before Trump’s inauguration. The uncertainty came as Trump was dealing with North Korea’s apparent first missile launch of the year and his presidency, along with visits this week from the leaders of Israel and Canada. Pressed repeatedly, Stephen Miller said it wasn’t up to him to say whether the president retains confidence in Flynn. “It’s not for me to tell you what’s...

    Paul Sperry writes that former President Barack Obama is setting up a “shadow White House” in Washington, DC, for organizing anti-Trump protests nationwide and “rebuilding the ravaged Democrat Party.” From the New York Post:   When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White...

    No one is rooting for the wall between the United States and Mexico to not be built harder than Fox News’ resident liberal Bob Beckel. Beckel is against the idea of the wall in general, but now Kimberly Guilfoyle, his co-host on “The Five” gave him another, better, reason to oppose it. During a segment on the projected cost of the project, Beckel highlighted a new study that said it might cost $21.6 billion and he contended the wall won’t be built. “I have to break this to you, Bob,” Guilfoyle said, “the wall is getting built.” “The wall is...
