    by Eric Lendrum   After over a week of counting the votes, another of the ten pro-impeachment Republicans in the House of Representatives has lost their primary to a challenger backed by President Donald Trump. Fox News reports that Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) conceded the race to former Green Beret Joe Kent on Tuesday, with a lengthy statement defending her record in office. Beutler was first elected to Washington’s 3rd congressional district in 2010. “Ever since I was first elected to this seat I have done my very best to serve my home region and our country,” said Beutler. “Though my campaign came up short this time, I’m proud of all we’ve accomplished together for the place where I was raised and still call home.” Beutler notably expressed no regret over her decision to vote in favor of the second impeachment of President Trump, the issue which ultimately sank her campaign. In the blanket primary, where the top two candidates advance to the general election regardless of party, it was Kent who received the 45th president’s endorsement. With 99...
    (CNN)Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington state managed to do something that's proven to be quite rare for the small band of House Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump last year: he kept his political future alive. Over the weekend, CNN projected that Newhouse would emerge out of the top-two primary in the state's 4th Congressional District along with Democrat Doug White. That makes Newhouse just the second member of the "Impeachment 10" to make it to the general election. Newhouse's fellow Washington Republican and impeachment backer, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, is still waiting to find out if she will join him. She and Republican Joe Kent are currently separated by just a few hundred votes for the second spot in the general election in the state's 3rd Congressional District.

Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the vice chair of the House select committee investigating the January 6,...
    Republican Congressman Dan Newhouse, who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, has defeated his Trump-backed opponent in Washington’s GOP primary. In February, Trump lashed out at Newhouse over his impeachment vote as he endorsed Loren Culp: Loren Culp is running against RINO Congressman Dan Newhouse in Washington’s 4th District. Newhouse joined the Radical Left Democrats to vote for the Impeachment Hoax, angering his constituents and causing the Republican Party of Washington to totally rebuke him. Loren Culp has protected the great people of Central Washington for years as a highly respected Police Chief. A man of the people, Loren will always defend your personal liberty, our under-siege Second Amendment, Election Integrity, and Law Enforcement. Unlike Dan Newhouse, who is absolutely terrible, Loren will never turn his back on Central Washington, or our Country. Loren Culp has my Complete and Total Endorsement! But that apparently didn’t get Culp over the finish line, as CNN projected Friday night that Newhouse has won: Republican Rep. Dan Newhouse and Democrat Doug White will advance to the general election out of the top-two primary...
    Washington (CNN)Republican Rep. Dan Newhouse and Democrat Doug White will advance to the general election out of the top-two primary in Washington's 4th Congressional District, CNN projects.Newhouse is one of the 10 Republican House members who voted for then-President Donald Trump's impeachment in January 2021 following the attack on the US Capitol. Trump had endorsed Republican challenger Loren Culp in the district. Washington holds open primaries in which all candidates, regardless of party, appear on the same ballot, with the top two finishers advancing to the November general election.Despite facing anger from his own party over his impeachment vote, Newhouse had a number of factors going his way this week: The incumbent handily outspent his challengers, the field was large and fractured, and Washington state's open primary system allowed people to vote for any candidate, regardless of affiliation.Newhouse's victory is a loss for Trump, who made defeating the 10 House Republicans who joined Democrats to impeach him a central goal to his post-presidency. By moving on from the primary, Newhouse is likely to keep his congressional seat. His district, which...
    Rep. Dan Newhouse survived the first round of a Republican primary challenge in Washington's 4th Congressional District, advancing to the November ballot in a race that was a test of political fortunes for GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. Newhouse managed to emerge from Washington’s all-party primary with a narrow lead ahead of Democratic candidate Doug White. Newhouse's biggest political foe, though, was another Republican running in the Aug. 2 all-party primary, Loren Culp. Updated results Friday night showed Culp in third place, and out of the running. That makes Newhouse a rare House Republican in 2022 who voted for Trump over his actions (and inactions) surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riots likely to hold his seat. Newhouse and White will face off again in November, the district is strongly Republican. Newhouse has represented the deep-red district, which encompasses a large swath of central Washington from the Oregon state line to the U.S.-Canada border, since 2015, and easily won reelection in 2020.

    (CNN)Two of Tuesday's primaries in Washington state represent a key question for the Republican Party: 18 months removed from Donald Trump's second impeachment, has the GOP anger at party lawmakers who backed the effort subsided?Primary voters will answer that question for Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler and Dan Newhouse, two of the 10 House Republicans who joined Democrats to impeach Trump after the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol. In the months since their votes, both have paid the price at home. They have been criticized by their state party, censured by local leaders and challenged by handfuls of Republican challengers.But heading into Tuesday, Republicans in Washington state acknowledge that there is considerable uncertainty in both primaries, leading many in the state to believe it is possible -- if not likely -- that they could survive."If the vote was held a month (after the impeachment decision), they probably would have lost," said one Washington Republican operative. "But given 9% inflation, given the high gas prices we saw, if you are talking with conservative voters, they may be more concerned...
    As Americans prepare to celebrate our nation’s founding in a few days, the country is more divided than ever, with a recent poll revealing troubling signs of dissatisfaction and unrest — including a stunning number across partisan lines who believe it may “soon be necessary to take up arms” against the government. The online poll was conducted for The University of Chicago Institute of Politics by Republican pollsters Neil Newhouse and Joel Benenson with a sample size of 1,000 registered voters across the United States during the period of May 19-23, 2022. The margin of error was +/- 3.53%, and the following demographic criteria were considered: Quotas were set for gender, region, age, ethnicity, and education. Modest weighting was also applied to these same variables upon completion of interviewing based on demographic information available from the Census. Modest weighting was also applied by 2020 Presidential vote to match the national election results. The poll, according to a summary memo, was intended to “probe polarization and its relationship to the news sources upon which Americans rely in a fractionated media environment,”...
    Concerned Democrats staged a theatrical committee vote to help an embattled Republican, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA), survive his August 2 primary race against a small-government candidate endorsed by former President Donald Trump. The vote was “just a political ploy [by Democrats] for him to try to remain in office,” responded Loren Culp, the Trump-backed candidate: This is the Democrats paying him back for voting to impeach President Trump, for him voting for red flag laws, and for him voting for the January commission … They’re giving him some payback to help him make it through the election. “If you look at what the bills that he’s proposed, he’s proposed bills to incentivize people coming across our southern border illegally by giving them amnesty,” Culp added. An April poll by Spry Strategies showed Culp leading Newhouse by 28 percent to 19 percent. The Democrat, Doug White, scored just 18 percent of the very conservative district. The top two vote-getters will face each other in a runoff after the August 2 primary, giving Democrats a second opportunity to help Newhouse survive the...
    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The insurgent candidate backed by former President Donald Trump appears to be stalling in a crowded field of Republicans challenging the GOP incumbent for a U.S. House seat in conservative central Washington state. Rep. Dan Newhouse, a four-term congressman, has drawn primary challengers thanks in part to being among the few in his party who voted to impeach President Donald Trump. Perhaps the best known outside candidate in Washington’s 4th Congressional District’s intraparty feud is Loren Culp, who’s running against his own Republican Party as much as he is against Newhouse. Culp, a former small town police chief who lost the 2020 governor’s race to Democrat Jay Inslee but refused to concede, won Trump’s endorsement in February, but has lagged other candidates in reported fundraising figures. Trump’s influence among GOP voters is being tested in midterm elections across the country this year as he looks to flex his power and punish his enemies ahead of a possible 2024 presidential campaign. Trump has vowed to take down the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him over...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A burglary suspect has been arrested after dozens of break-ins in the San Fernando Valley, most of which were captured on surveillance video, authorities said.Reuben Newhouse, 62, was arrested on March 1, and he was being held on $505,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.Between Oct. 29, 2020, and Feb. 25, 2022, Newhouse was responsible for over 70 commercial burglaries in the valley, 26 of them in North Hollywood, police said.
    A 62-year-old man has been arrested and charged on suspicion of carrying out a nearly two-year burglary spree in the San Fernando Valley, resulting in more than $200,000 in losses for local businesses, Los Angeles Police said. Reuben Newhouse, who was arrested last week, was charged with 23 counts of burglary in connection with incidents in North Hollywood between October 2020 and February 2022, police said. But LAPD officials said they believe Newhouse was involved in more than 70 burglaries over that period of time. The department anticipates additional burglary charges being filed against him, police said. Newhouse was initially accused of 26 burglaries in North Hollywood, with 23 of the incidents caught on securities cameras, said Det. James Espinoza, of the LAPD’s North Hollywood burglary section. Most of the burglaries occurred at independent, mom-and-pop stores, restaurants and salons, with Newhouse allegedly breaking into the businesses between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. and emptying the cash registers, police said. If he could not quickly gain access to the registers, he would simply take them, investigators said. California Man...
    NORTH HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — The Los Angeles Police Department arrested Reuben Newhouse for the over 70 burglaries across the San Fernando Valley.  Dubbed the ‘Two O’Clock Rock Burglar’ by police, Newhouse is allegedly responsible for 70 commercial burglaries, 26 of which were in North Hollywood, from Oct. 2020 to February 2022, according to police. He was given the name ‘Two O’Clock Rock Burglar’ because a majority of the burglaries happened between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. READ MORE: Three LAPD Officers Honored For Rescuing Pilot From Downed Aircraft In Pacoima (credit: LAPD) READ MORE: LA County Reports 40 New COVID Deaths; Hospitalizations Fall Below 650According to police, numerous crime alerts and community alerts garnered no leads, until a resident discovered evidence on the side of the road which led to detectives to Newhouse’s home.

    CHELMSFORD (CBS) — Betty White’s 100th birthday on Monday was bittersweet, following the beloved actress and comedian’s death just weeks prior. But the “Golden Girl” still ended up doing a world of good for a cause that was important to her – rescuing animals. The “Betty White Challenge” that took off on social media encouraged her fans to support their local animal shelters with donations – even just $5 would make difference. And Boston-area shelters felt the love. The Newhouse Wildlife Rescue in Chelmsford was “blown away” after raising $17,000 on White’s birthday – enough to get the shelter ready for “baby season.” “I have always loved and respected this woman as an actress, comedian and fellow animal lover, but today that respect goes much further,” Newhouse posted to Facebook. “I am truly inspired by this incredible woman and I am so thankful for her and for all of you.”   At the Animal Rescue League of Boston, more than 1,200 donations poured in Monday – all in honor of White. MSPCA-Angell has also reported receiving thousands of dollars in...
    Shannon Newhouse has made her second major weight loss transformation. Newhouse, 35, from Mechanicville, New York, lost 188 pounds 10 years ago. After regaining most of that weight back, she’s lost another 150 pounds.  Newhouse told Fox News that she "wasn’t really active" for most of her life and when she was in her early 20s, her weight reached past 300 pounds.  Newhouse said that at that point, she started to get nervous about her weight and her health so she joined Weight Watchers and started walking and going to the gym. After about 2 years, she lost 188 pounds and was even featured in People magazine for her accomplishment.  WOMAN LOSES 123 POUNDS AFTER TAKING UP RUNNING IN LOCKDOWN Newhouse said that she kept the weight off for a few years, but by late 2014 and early 2015, she started to gain some of that weight back and stopped going to the gym.  "I just got caught up in life," Newhouse said. "I gained a little bit, so I started to kind of feel bad about myself." Ten...
    Republican Loren Culp has a commanding lead over Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) in Washington’s Fourth Congressional District race, according to an internal poll obtained by Breitbart News. The poll, conducted by the Republican-aligned Spry Strategies from December 9 to 11, found Culp ahead of Newhouse by close to seven points, 37.9 percent to 31.1 percent, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup in next year’s August primary. 30.9 percent of respondents said they were undecided. See the full poll results below: Culp, most known for challenging Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) in the state’s gubernatorial race last year, told Breitbart News in an interview in October that he wanted to continue his political momentum after seeing three-term incumbent Newhouse vote alongside nine other Republican defectors to impeach former President Donald Trump this year over the January 6 Capitol riot. Culp described Newhouse’s vote as “the last straw” for Fourth District Washingtonians, who had voted 18 points in favor of Trump in 2020, making the district the most pro-Trump in the state. The poll asked respondents if they approved or disapproved of...
    Washington’s Fourth Congressional District Republican candidate Loren Culp told Breitbart News Saturday he is challenging “spineless” Republican Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) to unseat him after he failed the Republican Party by voting to impeach former President Donald Trump and in favor of the January 6 committee. “I’m running against Newhouse because he is now, as you mentioned, one of the ten who voted to impeach President Trump, but he also doubled down, and he voted for the January 6 Commission, which is allowing that to closer to keep the charade going and attack conservative people,” Culp explained. Culp explained in the show he is ready to take on Newhouse since he received the largest amount of votes than any other Republican in the state when he ran for governor in 2020. He said that was because he stood for individual freedom and liberty. Additionally, he explained, in 2018, he was Chief of Police in a small town. Culp said he was the “first law enforcement executive to stand up and say that I will not enforce this unconstitutional law,” clarifying that he will do the same thing in Congress....
    During Friday’s Republican Weekly Address, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) stated that the death tax proposed by Democrats would be horrible for families looking to pass their farms on to their children, which is odd coming from the same Democrats who constantly rail against big agriculture. And that Democrats, instead of catering to the “radicals in their party,” should consider the impacts of their policies on rural communities. Transcript as Follows:  “Hello, I’m Congressman Dan Newhouse, a third-generation farmer representing the 4th Congressional District of Washington state, and I’m honored to be delivering this week’s Republican Address. Central Washington is made up of honest, hardworking, freedom-loving Americans who provide food and fiber for this nation, and my district is home to some of the most dedicated and innovative agriculture producers in the country. Washington’s farmers and ranchers produce more than 300 commodities, including high-quality hay, wheat, beef, dairy, and specialty crops like apples, hops, potatoes, cherries, mint, and winegrapes. Blessed with the conditions to produce such a diverse range of crops, Central Washington is proud to share its natural abundance in...

    Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) is sponsoring legislation to designate the firearm industry as “critical infrastructure.” Such a designation will remove Democrat governors’ ability to shut down the supply chain for firearms during a pandemic, as so many governors did during coronavirus lockdowns. Rep. Newhouse’s legislation is titled, the Second Amendment is Essential Act. The introductory paragraph to the Act states its purpose as “[directing] the Secretary of Homeland Security to designate the business of importing, manufacturing, or dealing firearms, or importing or manufacturing ammunition pursuant to section 923 of title 18, United States Code, as a critical infrastructure sector.” He commented on the bill, saying: It is always unconstitutional for government to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners, but to do so in the midst of a crisis is especially unconscionable. By denying Federal Firearms Licensees the ability to operate under “essential worker” designations, Governors across the country, including Jay Inslee, have not only infringed on the Second Amendment rights of Americans, but have recklessly tied the hands of our law enforcement officers who require access to these tools to...
    Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., introduced a bill designating workers in the firearms industry as "essential" in a move aiming to bolster the Second Amendment. The Washington Republican announced the "Second Amendment is Essential Act," which would classify the gun industry as "a critical infrastructure sector" and the industry’s employees as critical workers, in a press release sent out this week. Newhouse took aim at Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, and other governors around the country for not designating federal firearms licensees as essential workers, accusing them of infringing on Americans’ Second Amendment rights and "recklessly" tying the hands of police. "It is always unconstitutional for government to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners, but to do so in the midst of a crisis is especially unconscionable," Newhouse said in a statement.

    As if stepping into a time machine, Americans last month were rocked with growing inflation, rising consumer prices, stagnating unemployment numbers, and long lines at the gas pump reminiscent of the days of the Carter administration. If Blondie was on the radio, you’d think it was 1979 all over again.  Many Americans are old enough to remember the twin oil crises that catastrophically disrupted energy supplies throughout much of 1970s. For the younger generation, last month’s fuel shortage offered a stark glimpse at how dire things can get when the pump unexpectedly runs dry.  On May 7, 2021, a cybersecurity breach in the now-famous Colonial Pipeline crippled the American energy supply chain for several days – leading to fuel shortages up and down the East Coast and leaving many of us wondering: how could this happen again? REP. JOHN KATKO: BIDEN'S BORDER CRISIS – EVERY STATE IS NOW A BORDER STATE To answer that question, we need only look back to President Biden’s first actions upon taking office.  In his first week as president, Joe Biden canceled the Keystone XL...

    Far-right ex-cop Loren Culp announced Thursday that he would challenge Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse, who is one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump in January. Culp, who was the GOP’s 2020 nominee for governor, made it very clear he’d be making his campaign all about that vote: After accusing the incumbent of having a “spine made of jelly,” Culp, without offering any evidence, accused Newhouse of making “some kind of deal” with Democrats. Newhouse was already facing intraparty challenges on his right from state Rep. Brad Klippert and businessman Jerrod Sessler in next year’s top-two primary, and more could still join. It’s possible that a crowded field of opponents could split the anti-Newhouse GOP vote in the 4th District and allow the congressman to advance to a general election with a Democrat, but that’s far from assured. This 58-40 Trump seat is red enough that Newhouse went up against a fellow Republican in both 2014 and 2016, and this eastern Washington seat will almost certainly remain very conservative turf after redistricting. Culp may also be prominent...
    As the respective chairmen of the Senate and Congressional Western Caucuses, a group of members who work to lift the voice of the rural West in Congress, we have a vested interest in how the federal government’s regulations impact water, agriculture and natural resources across the country – especially when these regulations burden the rural communities we represent. The "Waters of the United States" (WOTUS) rule by then-President Obama and Vice President Biden was a drastic land and water grab that sought to give unprecedented power to unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., at the expense of farmers, ranchers, small business owners and the American people.  This isn’t just partisan rhetoric – the courts ruled that the 2015 definition was more expansive than the statute and the Constitution allow. REP. JODY HICE: DC STATEHOOD VOTE – HERE'S WHAT DEMOCRATS' POWER PLAY IS REALLY ABOUT WOTUS provided none of the clarity and certainty it promised.

    President Biden has added yet another tally-mark to his ever-increasing list of executive orders. This time, it was an order declaring his purported recognition of the need to secure our nation’s domestic supply chains. On its face, the motivation behind such a declaration is one we would agree with. Our nation’s domestic sourcing of critical minerals – or significant lack thereof – truly is a substantial weakness. But you don’t have to dig deep to find how disingenuous the president’s simultaneous actions – in tune with the actions of congressional Democrats – are next to this announcement. Their actions fly directly in the face of the concrete assertions included in his executive order. TUCKER CARLSON: AMERICA'S BREZHNEV LETS US DREAM OF SOCIALLY DISTANCED HOT DOGS ON JULY 4 According to his order, Securing America’s Critical Supply Chains, "Critical minerals are an essential part of defense, high-tech and other products.

    KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — A conservative state representative from the Tri-Cities has filed to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Newhouse in next year's primary, after Newhouse was one of 10 members of the House GOP who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. Republican State Rep. Brad Klippert announced Tuesday that he will seek to oust Newhouse. “I believe in the Greatness of the United States of America, and the Greatness of our Constitution!,” Klippert said in a written statement released through the Benton County Republican Party. Many Republican organizations in the central Washington district demanded that Newhouse resign after the impeachment vote. Newhouse, first elected in 2014, refused. Klippert is a conservative firebrand who has introduced numerous bills to end the COVID-19 lockdowns, and curb the powers of governors to impose them. His written statement did not mention Newhouse. He is a deputy in the Benton County Sheriff's Office and has been a member of the state House for 12 years. Newhouse, 65, was reelected with 66% of the vote in November. The district has a large agricultural base...
    Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) on Wednesday became the sixth House Republican member to express support for impeaching President Donald Trump over last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol.   “A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence we witnessed in our nation’s capital,” Newhouse said in a statement. “It is also a vote to condone President Trump’s inaction. He did not strongly condemn the attack nor did he call in reinforcements when our officers were overwhelmed. Our country needs a leader, and President Trump failed to fulfill his oath of office. I will vote yes on the articles of impeachment.” My full statement on the House impeachment vote: pic.twitter.com/X74Sgq1Nqu — Rep. Dan Newhouse (@RepNewhouse) January 13, 2021 In addition to Newhouse, the following House GOP members support impeachment: Liz Cheney (WY), Adam Kinzinger (IL), Fred Upton (MI), Jaime Herrera (WA), and John Katko (NY).

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Ten Republican House members — including the No. 3 House GOP leader — voted to impeach President Donald Trump over the deadly insurrection at the Capitol. The GOP votes were in sharp contrast to the unanimous support for Trump among House Republicans when he was impeached by Democrats in December 2019. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranking House Republican, led the GOP opposition to Trump, saying in a statement, “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.” Cheney, whose father, Dick Cheney, served as vice president under George W. Bush, has been more critical of Trump than other GOP leaders, but her announcement hours before Wednesday’s vote nonetheless shook Congress. Trump “summoned” the mob that attacked the Capitol, “assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” Cheney said, adding: “Everything that followed was his doing.” Trump could have immediately intervened to stop his supporters from rioting but did not, she noted. Nine other House Republicans also supported impeachment:...
    Rep. Dan Newhouse became the sixth Republican to say that they will vote to impeach President Trump on Wednesday afternoon as debate raged in the House over an impeachment article accusing the president of inciting an insurrection.  The Washington Republican joins Reps.

"Last week, hateful and un-American extremists stormed the U.S. Capitol, attacking both the structural embodiment of our Republic and the values we promote as citizens of this great nation. The violent mob, intent on disturbing the constitutional duties of Congress, resulted in the tragic loss of American lives, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer," Newhouse said in a statement. "The mob was inflamed by the language and misinformation of the President of the United States." Newhouse added: "This is a pivotal and solemn moment in our country's history. I wholeheartedly believe in our nation -- and the system of government it was founded upon -- may well be in jeopardy if we do not rise to this occasion. This is not a decision I take lightly." REP. MACE BLAMES...
    Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse is the sixth House Republican to announce that he will vote in favor of impeaching President Trump for "incitement of insurrection" at the U.S. Capitol last week. "The mob was inflamed by the language and misinformation of the President of the United States," Newhouse said in a statement on Wednesday announcing his intention to vote yes. "This is a pivotal and solemn moment in our country's history. I wholeheartedly believe our nation — and the system of government it was founded upon — may well be in jeopardy if we do not rise to this occasion. This is not a decision I take lightly. "Turning a blind eye to this brutal assault on our Republic is not an option. A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence witnessed in our nation's capital. It is also a vote to condone President Trump's inaction," Newhouse said. In announcing his intention to vote to impeach Trump, he joins Republicans Wyoming Rep.

    Rep. Dan Newhouse now says the amicus declaring Biden's wins 'unconstitutional' was not intended to change the results. Less than two weeks after backing a lawsuit to overturn the 2020 election, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) is now claiming he wanted to do no such thing. In an op-ed published Sunday, Newhouse wrote that the amicus brief he and 125 other House Republicans signed backing a Texas challenge to the election results was really only intended to "defend our Constitution and instill confidence in our election system." "I maintain, despite the numerous media reports to the contrary, that this brief — and this case — was not about overturning election results," he argued. "The consequences of a lack of confidence in our election system are not just for this election, but for future national elections as well. If now is not the time to stand up for our Constitution, when is?"
