    On Tuesday, 15-year Tulsa Police Department veteran and Sergeant Craig Johnson died at a hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to his head on Monday. Six-week rookie Officer Aurash Zarkeshan was also in critical condition after also being shot in the head during the same struggle with a suspect. Though Monday's CBS Evening News was the only broadcast newscast to report on their hospitalization, neither they nor ABC, or NBC informed their viewers about Sgt. Johnson’s passing. Proving that the shooting warranted national attention, CBS fill-in anchor Major Garrett delivered a meager 16-second news brief on Monday: Two Tulsa, Oklahoma,...

    Oklahoma voters narrowly approved a state question to expand Medicaid to cover more low-income residents. With all precincts reporting Tuesday, State Question 802, which asked voters to expand Medicaid, passed by 6,488 votes. The question will enshrine Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma’s constitution — effectively preventing Oklahoma’s GOP-controlled Legislature and Republican governor from limiting or undoing the expansion.

    Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos, has temporarily banned President Trump’s account for “hateful conduct” stemming from footage of the president’s speeches. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson told Fox News. A rebroadcast of Trump’s 2015 campaign launch -- when he famously criticized people crossing the Mexican border to illegally enter the United States -- and comments Trump made at his recent Tulsa rally...

    An article published several days ago written by an anonymous attendee made the claim that the management for the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma sabotaged attendance for the campaign rally by President Trump held there last Saturday resulting in thousands of empty seats in the BOK Center and the cancellation of plans for Trump and Vice President Pence to speak to an expected overflow crowd of thousands on a stage set up just outside the arena before speaking at the rally inside.The fire marshal and arena management put attendance at just over 6,000 while the Trump campaign claimed 12,000...

    'We're not putting up with this lawlessness here' Oklahoma City prosecutors are charging three violent protesters, who allegedly participated in demonstrations triggered by the killing of George Floyd, with terrorism. Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater announced Friday that he has charged 21-year-old Isael Antonio Ortiz, 26-year-old Eric Christopher Ruffin, and 18-year-old Malachai Davis with terrorism, the Oklahoman reported. During protests on May 30, Ortiz allegedly burned an Oklahoma County Sheriff's office van and attempted to burn a nearby bail bonds office. Ruffin allegedly encouraged the "wanton destruction" of the van, while Davis is accused of damaging the bail bonds...

    Chesapeake Energy Corporation said Sunday it had filed for bankruptcy amid a drop in oil and gas demand and prices due to the coronavirus pandemic. Chesapeake Energy said in a release it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and will continue to operate throughout its restructuring process.

    While I rarely use the term “fake news” in my writing, it really does exist. And once it circulates online, it becomes canonized, fixed in the popular mind of the day as if irrefutable truth. Yet it’s becoming more and more difficult to separate truth from fiction when following the news.You’ll read a juicy headline, promising some bombshell information, only to read the article and say, “That’s it?”You’ll see the sensational title of a video only to watch the video and ask, “Where was the shock and awe?”You’ll see a chyron running across the screen, but it doesn’t match the...

Our numbers on the border, as you know, are at just about a record-breaking low. People are not being able to cross the border. The wall is up, because we have more than 200 — we have about 212 miles up of wall. So that’s good.And we’re going to be doing a number of other things. We’re going to be making a speech to young people in Arizona, and we’ll be meeting with some...

    Broadcasters continue to find new ways to compromise meaningful coverage of President Trump and his reelection campaign. “Will CNN and MSNBC cover Donald Trump’s 2020 rallies in a way that allows the president to simply state his message to the American people? Or will they attempt to hide and censor him?” asked Scott Whitlock, associate editor of Newsbusters.org, a conservative press watchdog. "If Saturday’s Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma is any indicator, it seems likely the liberal outlets will choose the latter,” Mr. Whitlock wrote. “While Fox News played all 101 minutes — or 100% — of Trump’s campaign kickoff,...

    My colleague Brad Slagger reported on the millions of people who tuned in on Fox News earlier, but now new numbers have come out that blow even those away. Many leftists were giddy over the fact that President Donald Trump’s Tulsa rally didn’t have the attendance that it once did before the coronavirus swept across the globe, but what they didn’t anticipate was how many people were watching from home. Looking at pictures during the rally, you can see that nearly the entirety of the top row was vacant. As it turns out this was partially due to the fact...

    President Trump’s rally on Saturday attracted a record-setting audience on TV despite the smaller-than-expected crowd in attendance at the Tulsa, Okla., event. A whopping 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT during Trump’s remarks, making it the most watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data. Trump’s rally also gave Fox News its largest Saturday night primetime audience ever from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Trump’s State of the Union address is the only telecast on Fox News in 2020 to outdraw the 9 p.m....

    A Joe Biden victory in November would be a "tragic setback" for the country, "The Next Revolution" host Steve Hilton argued Sunday night. Pointing to President Trump's campaign rally Saturday in Tulsa, Hilton asserted during his opening monologue that only Trump is capable of facilitating "long-term change to right the wrongs of the establishment's 50 years of failure." "Here's why a second Trump term is so important. 2016 was a populace revolution and ever since, the establishment have been desperate to get their power back," Hilton said. "Russia, Mueller, impeachment, the bureaucracy, the establishment media…John Bolton with his book, they’re...

    VIDEO Have you noticed something missing in almost all reports about Covid-19 (coronavirus) cases lately? It is the death rate. And why would that be? Perhaps because in the midst of all the reporting about the number of cases rising (or people reported testing positive) the actual number of daily deaths has been PLUNGING. As you can see in the Worldometers graphs, the daily deaths have dropped dramatically from April 21 to May 21 to June 21 with a drop of over 50% in just the past month. Yes, the same media that emphasized the daily deaths during April...
