The Claremont Institute selected Jack Posobiec to be a recipient of the prestigious Lincoln Fellowship, noting his contributions to the United States in the military as a veteran intelligence officer for the United States Navy, his political activism with Citizens for Trump, and his journalism at One America News Network.
The Claremont Institute, a think tank that seeks to help return the United States to “the principles of the American Founding” has selected Posobiec as a recipient of its prestigious Lincoln Fellowship, a program offered to “offered to patriotic young professionals” who are “employees of the United States government and state governments, public policy research institutions, and print and broadcast media.”
On its website, the Claremont Institute notes Posobiec is “a correspondent and host for conservative One America News Network,” and that “In 2016, he was the Special Projects Director for Citizens for Trump, the largest Trump grassroots organization in the United States.”
The Institute also adds that “Jack is a veteran intelligence officer of the United States Navy with multiple deployments overseas.”
It is widely acknowledged that Posobiec has led OANN to new heights during his tenure at the cable news organization. Since Posobiec joined its ranks, President Donald Trump has taken notice of the organization’s willingness to broadcast his America First agenda on Twitter, writing last week “Actually, whenever possible, I turn to @OANN!”
As noted by Posobiec on Twitter, the Claremont Institute was recently censored by Facebook in the wake of the platform’s decision to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer.
Posobiec is one of 13 recipients of the Lincoln Fellowship who will be honored this month.
