    BANGOR, Maine — The closing of one of the last two Howard Johnson restaurants in a couple of weeks will mark the end of its fried clam strips, ice cream and other menu staples that nourished baby boomers and leave the once-proud restaurant chain teetering on the brink of extinction. The slice of roadside Americana will no longer be served up in Bangor after Sept. 6. For waitress Kathe Jewett, it's the only job she's held since starting work when the restaurant opened in 1966. "It's bittersweet, but it's nothing to be sad about," the 68-year-old Jewett insisted Tuesday during...

    Entering to sustained applause, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told his Austin audience that “the people of Texas are proud, they’re independent and they are free. There is no better place to deliver the message I have to deliver tonight.” “Tonight’s message is about re-declaring our independence as a country,” Trump said. “We are going to declare our independence from special interests, corrupt politicians … and from a rigged system that benefits only the insiders,” he said. Interrupted periodically by protesters, Trump called border security “our most vital issue” and voiced support for school choice and merit pay for teachers.

Prior to boarding the Trump Train, Conway spoke out against political name-calling, so tonight on Fox News, Megyn Kelly asked how she can work for a campaign that is notorious for, well, name-calling. Kelly even brought up the fact that Trump called MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski “neurotic” just today: Conway said that he won’t call someone a name without being attacked first, so Kelly asked if that is really an excuse. Kelly then took a quick dig at MSNBC, saying that Morning Joe...

    The FBI is probing a possible cyberbreach of numerous company email accounts belonging to New York Times reporters by Russian government-linked hackers, a law enforcement source close to the investigation told Fox News on Tuesday. The investigation, which is ongoing, is looking into how and how far the perpetrators infiltrated the Times email accounts in question. It was not exactly known how many New York Times email accounts may have been compromised, according to law enforcement sources. The latest apparent hacking adds to the laundry list of recently disclosed Russia-involved hacks of high profile U.S. organizations.

    Assange Promises To Prove She Funded And Equipped ISIS In “October Surprise” Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to act clueless when it comes to ISIS. They act clueless about when they formed, where they are today, and how can we defeat them. They are lazy, but they are also severely incompetent.

A visibly frustrated Judge Anna Brown struck from the record a previous ruling that effectively allowed evidence from defendants’ Facebook accounts into next month’s trial. Despite calling an assistant U.S. attorney, two legal assistants and an FBI agent as witnesses, prosecutors weren’t able to explain to the court how protected information from 11 Facebook accounts used by defendants ended up being shared as part of discovery. Judge Brown ordered...

The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.

    A liberal Court could end long-term solitary confinement. It could mandate better prison conditions in general, making it more costly to maintain mass incarceration. It could conceivably end the death penalty. It could uphold tough state campaign finance rules and start to move away from Citizens United. It could start to develop a robust right to vote and limit gerrymandering. It could strengthen abortion rights, moving toward viewing abortion rights as a matter of equal protection for women. If Donald Trump wins in November, this is all moot. But if he loses, as polls increasingly indicate, the dawn of a...

    The theory that Donald Trump is preparing for a defeat at the polls in November by planning to launch a media company is really picking up momentum. The rumors started swirling earlier this summer. After a few op-eds came out about the idea last week, CNN tackled it this weekend. Now that Fox News’ Sean Hannity has revealed himself to be informally advising Trump, The Young Turks took it on, too: Cenk Uygur mentioned in a broadcast that Hannity, Steve Bannon, and Roger Ailes, all of whom have been rumored — with varying levels of confirmation — are big in...

    A dangerous, erratic, con man with the worst spray tan ever. That's how Sen. Marco Rubio described Donald Trump when they were both seeking the Republican presidential nomination. Now that Trump is the nominee and Rubio is running for re-election, his tone is different. He is no longer criticizing Trump, but he isn't exactly gushing praise. Democrats are trying to make him look like a hypocrite for backing the man he previously said shouldn't have access to nuclear weapon codes, and for jumping back into the Senate race after he said he wouldn't. "Sen. Rubio is actually the real con...

    Hillary Clinton has been tired of talking about her private email server for a long time. When a reporter asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the story’s staying power as she walked away from a terse news conference in August 2015, the politician threw up her hands in exasperation. “Nobody talks to me about it other than you guys,” she hollered back. But a year later — and with just over three months until the election — Clinton is still being plagued by her decision to use a personal email account for work during her tenure as secretary of state....

    Former Democratic operative turned Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos good barely restrain himself on Tuesday as he gushed over a new movie about the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama. Talking to the stars of Southside With You, he hyped the film as focusing “on one day in the summer of 1989 when Barack and Michelle Obama went out for the first time.” Stephanopoulos pressed actors Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers (who stars as Obama), wondering, “I guess you guys have to be a little bit nervous thinking, 'Are they going the watch the movie?'” Zeroing in on...

    A Michigan rodeo clown is out of a job after he joked about gender identity at the Calhoun County Fair last week. “You’re either a boy or a girl, y’all understand,” “Rockin’ Robbie Hodges told the audience Thursday. “If you’re confused, then you need help, OK?” Some audience members appeared to laugh at the joke, but an attendee who recorded the skit said many people left out of protest, a local NBC News affiliate reported. Megan Harvey, the executive director for the Calhoun County Fair, said she was disappointed by the comments. “I was very disappointed, because we do not...

    Hillary assures voters she’s done nothing wrong and won’t do it again Hillary Clinton, after learning there is a chance that hackers could release potentially embarrassing Clinton Foundation emails before the November elections, has announced that if she is elected president the foundation will no longer accept the foreign and corporate donations that have convinced all but her most loyal sycophants that she may well have been peddling influence to the highest bidder as secretary of state. It is as if Willie Sutton, after robbing enough banks to ensure a comfortable retirement, had announced that bankers and their depositors could...
