El Paso mayor calls Walmart shooter ‘pure evil’ in ‘Fox News Sunday’ interview

Westlake Legal Group Dee-Margo-elpaso El Paso mayor calls Walmart shooter 'pure evil' in 'Fox News Sunday' interview Nick Givas fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/shows/fox-news-sunday fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 692a9f86-a504-5246-a13f-8ed0ec543685

El Paso’s Republican Mayor Dee Margo called the infamous Walmart shooting suspect “pure evil” during an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” following the deadly bloodbath that took place in his city on Saturday.

The suspected gunman, identified by the FBI as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas, shot 20 innocent civilians dead and injured 26 others after he calmly walked into the store and began to open fire.

“I haven’t been informed by the police or the FBI about this individual at all, other than knowing that he came from the Dallas area, he was deranged, he was evil, but I can assure you that I am convinced no one from El Paso would have ever done this,” he told host Chris Wallace. “It is not our nature, our culture and I don’t know about him. Pure evil, as far as I can characterize it.”

FORMER FBI RESPONSE TEAM MEMBER EXPLAINS HOW AUTHORITIES WILL PROCESS EL PASO EVIDENCE

Wallace mentioned a manifesto discovered by authorities, stating that the shooting was fueled by the suspect’s fear of an “invasion” by illegal immigrants, and Margo said the city’s large Hispanic population played a part in their targeting.

“We are the largest U.S. city on the Mexican border. Our region is a population inclusive of what is Mexico and southern New Mexico of two and a half million people. El Paso is 84 percent Hispanic, to begin with,” he replied.

“We have shoppers that come over every day from Mexico to purchase goods and services here. So we’ve been this way — we’re one region for 350 years. It’s hard to define El Paso. We’re totally unique for North America.”

Margo also thanked law enforcement for their tactical execution along with their vigilance and resolve, before saying how difficult it will be to bounce back from the 20 deaths.

“It’s tough anyway you look at it. Nobody prepares for this. I certainly, as mayor, have not been prepared for something like this,” he said earlier in the interview.

“Thank heavens our law enforcement was prepared. It’s been stated they received a call at 10:39 — were there at 10:45, and he was apprehended at 11:06 a.m. So I think that’s masterful work from their training. But it’s tough, it’s tough. I don’t think it’s going to get any easier until after we have our 20 funerals.”

Ocasio-Cortez demands McConnell stop ‘giving bogus excuses’ and pass gun background check bill

In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for failing to call a vote on a gun reform bill that the Democratically-controlled House of Representatives passed in February.

McConnell tweeted on Saturday that he and the country were “horrified” by the “senseless violence” in El Paso, where a lone gunman opened fire inside a Walmart and left at least 20 people dead and dozens more wounded. Following McConnell’s tweet, another gunman attacked a popular nightlife district in Dayton in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Ocasio-Cortez called out McConnell in a tweet on Sunday for “giving bogus excuses” as to why the Senate hasn’t taken up the measure passed in the House that would tighten background checks for people seeking to purchase a firearm.

POLITICIANS RESPOND TO SHOOTING AT WALMART IN EL PASO

“The House passed HR8, a Bipartisan Background Checks Act, *5 months ago* and the Senate has yet to vote on it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to McConnell’s own tweet. “It was one of our 1st major priorities after ending the gov shutdown. You’ve been sitting on it since February giving bogus excuses. Care to explain the people why?”

The measure, HR 8, was passed back in February with overwhelming support from the newly elected Democratic majority and some Republican support.

Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only lawmaker to call on McConnell to bring the resolution to a vote in the Senate.

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a leading candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, also demanded that McConnell call the Senate back into session and take up a vote of the resolution.

“Mitch McConnell should bring the Senate back into session immediately to pass HR 8, the gun safety bill that has already passed the House,” Sanders tweeted. “That’s a first step to addressing our serious gun violence epidemic.”

Castro says ‘one person’ is responsible for El Paso massacre: ‘the shooter’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6067880408001_6067892758001-vs Castro says 'one person' is responsible for El Paso massacre: 'the shooter' Gregg Re fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9c086408-eb2a-5299-bb09-47cf5f4e2798

Shortly after Beto O’Rourke claimed Sunday that President Trump’s “racism” is what “leads to” violent shootings, another Democratic presidential contender, Julian Castro said “there’s one person that’s responsible directly” for Saturday’s deadly mass shooting in El Paso, Texas — “and that’s the shooter.”

At the same time, Castro told ABC News’ “This Week,” Trump has embraced “division and bigotry and fanning the flames of hate” as a form of “political strategy.”

“It’s no accident that, just a few weeks after he announced his 2020 reelection bid, there he was indulging and entertaining this ‘Send her back’ chant,” Castro said. “And he’s spoken about immigrants as being invaders. “He’s given license for this toxic brew of white supremacy to fester more and more in this country. And we’re seeing the results of that.”

FOX NEWS REPORTER GIVES EMOTIONAL ACCOUNT OF VICTIM SAYING HIS MOTHER IS DEAD

In January, Trump wrote on Twitter, “Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion!”

And at the White House in March, Trump remarked, “Last month, more than 76,000 illegal migrants arrived at our border. We’re on track for a million illegal aliens to rush our borders. People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is. It’s an invasion of drugs and criminals and people. You have no idea who they are.”

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney denied earlier on “This Week” that Trump had “downplayed” the threat of white nationalism.

After the New Zealand mosque shootings in March, Trump was asked whether white nationalism was “rising threat around the world.” The president responded: “I don’t. I don’t really. It’s a small group of people…But it is a terrible thing.”

Castro, speaking to anchor Jonathan Karl, said that only the shooter bears “direct” responsibility.

“At the same time, as our national leader, you have a role to play in either fanning the flames of division or trying to bring Americans of different backgrounds together,” he added. “Most presidents have chosen to try and bring people together. This president very early on made a clear choice to divide people for his own political benefit. And these are some of the consequences that we’re seeing of that.”

Asked about the March interaction, Mulvaney said Trump has been misinterpreted.

“I don’t believe that’s downplaying it, look at what he said,” Mulvaney said. “Look, this is not the same as international nuclear weapons. This is a serious problem, there’s no question about it. But they are sick, sick people and the president knows that.”

TRUMP, 2020 DEMS CONDEMN EL PASO MASS SHOOTING: ‘ACT OF COWARDICE’

Mulvaney continued: “I don’t think it’s fair to try and lay this at the feet of the president. There are people in this country this morning thinking that President Trump was happy by this. That’s a sad, sad state of this nation. He’s angry. He’s upset. He wants it to stop. I don’t think it’s at all fair to sit here and say that he doesn’t think that white nationalism is bad for the nation. These are sick people. You cannot be a white supremacist and be normal in the head.”

Responding directly to Mulvaney’s comments, Castro told Karl, “You know, it’s so unfortunate that not only our president, but his administration can’t rise up to the challenge of leadership in these times.”

Separately on Sunday, Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg pointed specifically to “weak gun safety” measures and white nationalism as the culprits, after the El Paso shooter was linked to anti-Mexican statements.

“This is terrorism and we have to name it as such,” Buttigieg said, specifically calling it “white nationalist terrorism” in a conversation with host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”

“We need to acknowledge that this is a problem.” Buttigieg said, claiming that white nationalism has been “condoned at the highest levels” in Washington.

“Right now you see it being echoed by the White House and there is a measure of responsibility that you just can’t get away from,” he said. Buttigieg cited President Trump’s comment that there were “very fine people” on both sides after a deadly attack at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Trump condemned the El Paso shooting early Sunday morning, calling it “hateful” and “an act of cowardice.”

“God bless the people of El Paso Texas,” Trump said. “God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio.”

Charlie Kirk: Health care in ObamaCare era has Republicans floundering – Beware of #RINOCARE, my friends

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6060006220001_6060011035001-vs Charlie Kirk: Health care in ObamaCare era has Republicans floundering – Beware of #RINOCARE, my friends fox-news/us/democratic-party fox-news/politics/senate/health-care fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/health-care fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Charlie Kirk article 888f5659-3bc4-5608-ae03-c3bfb112e0dc

Ronald Reagan famously mocked liberals by saying, “We’re from the federal government and we’re here to help.” Yet Republicans are adopting that same philosophy with various feel good health care bills they’re backing, and it could land us with socialized medicine if they’re not careful. 

The new health care issue de jure is “surprise billing,” when people who have health insurance end up with large medical bills because they received care from doctors outside of their insurance plan’s “network.”

This often happens from emergency room visits, and it can be especially menacing when hospitals send their sky-high “charge master” prices, an accounting gimmick that creates paper revenue losses for tax and other purposes, to unsuspecting people who don’t know how the system works.

TUCKER CARLSON: NOT ALL 2020 DEMS ARE LUNATICS. BUT THE SANE ONES ARE GETTING CRUSHED

Pretty much everyone this side of the remorseless hit man in “No Country for Old Men” can sympathize with some God-fearing, middle-class family that gets stuck with an unexpected $10,000 hospital bill despite paying their insurance premiums on time every month.

The problem has gotten worse in the last several years with Obamacare as a primary driver.  The story of why is like the classic children’s book “A Fly Went By,” in which each animal believes it’s being chased by another behind it that’s really just fleeing from something else.

Thanks to Obamacare, the plan for a 65-year-old man is now required to cover pregnancy, kids are still kids until they’re 26 years old, and there are all kinds of other expensive goodies. Also, everyone involved has to pay a million lawyers a zillion dollars just to understand how to follow the rules.

The insurance companies are getting hammered from Obamacare, and now the doctors are getting stiffed. Who gets it next? That’s right, you do.

In the meantime, insurance companies started embracing their inner cheapskate. They’ve been getting more and more stingy about their “networks,” which are price agreements they have with sets of hospitals and doctors. 

If you go to the “in network” doctor, he sends the bill at the agreed-upon rate for that kind of treatment, the plan pays for it, and life goes on. If you go “out of network,” e.g. to a specialist, they bill the insurance company, and the insurance company pays what it wants to pay, and leaves the rest for you to cover.

MORE FROM OPINION

In theory, it makes sense that the insurance company can’t just pay any price the doctor dreams up. The problem is primarily with the Motel 6 Obamacare plans that have gotten very, very chintzy with their “networks.”

So the insurance companies are getting hammered from Obamacare, and now the doctors are getting stiffed. Who gets it next? That’s right, you do. While it’s still a relatively rare problem, for the people facing it, it’s often a crisis. Now Congress is hearing it, and they’re looking around for who to scapegoat over the problems they created in the first place.

You might imagine that in trying to address these types of situations, Congress would put a greater onus on health insurance companies to pay for the health care costs of the people buying health care insurance from them. Ha! How naive of you! It’s almost as if you didn’t know the health insurance lobby is the biggest, meanest bully on the health care block.

Instead, Republicans like Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) are considering the legislative equivalent of a gift basket to the insurance companies, which basically just gives them more leeway to stiff doctors. The result of this would be a health care market marginally less connected to economic reality, and all the dysfunctions that come with it.

But that’s not the most important point of all this. The important point is what the “surprise billing” issue shows about the larger direction of the health care debate in the next five to 10 years.

One of the interesting phenomenons of political change is how sudden it can be if determined opposition lapses. Republicans are floundering on health care in the Obamacare age, but looking to government to solve the rough edges that Obamacare created is playing right into liberals’ hands.

The key for Republicans is to remember what their vision is, even if it’s difficult to imagine the world that way. Obamacare made it even harder to imagine a health care market that operates by the logic of a market, resulting in higher quality and lower prices over time.

Without that vision, the health care debate could quickly devolve into a pragmatic matter of how best to administer the federal agencies that run 10 percent of our economy. And that’s exactly the kind of environment in which a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren could bring about socialized health care in an astonishingly short amount of time.

The bills under discussion would make the system work a little bit worse. The trend of Republicans flirting with do-gooder, economically ignorant health care policy could be the system’s demise. Republicans should get on the ball, and fast.

Dayton, Ohio, shooting suspect identified, sister among 9 killed, officials say

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6067866497001_6067858793001-vs Dayton, Ohio, shooting suspect identified, sister among 9 killed, officials say Travis Fedschun fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox news fnc/us fnc article 1faa899e-7d92-54d8-a5be-e18a3d5b38b4

The sister of the gunman in the deadly rampage in Dayton, Ohio was among the nine killed during the early-morning shooting in a popular nightlife area that left dozens injured, officials revealed Sunday.

Dayton Deputy Director and Assistant Chief of Police Lt. Col. Matt Carper identified the gunman as 24-year-old Connor Betts. His sister, 22-year-old Megan Betts, was among the nine killed, according to Carper, who added that al of those killed during the rampage were shot in the city’s Oregon District around Fifth Street.

Betts was killed by police less than a minute after he opened fire with a .223-caliber rifle in the streets of the Oregon District around 1 a.m. Sunday in the second U.S. mass shooting in less than 24 hours after at least 20 people were slain in El Paso, Texas.

“This is a heartbreaking tragedy,” Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine told reporters at a news conference Sunday afternoon. “It is the type of tragedy that you hope never comes to your state.”

DAYTON, OHIO, SHOOTING THAT LEFT 9 DEAD, 27 HURT HALTED ‘IN UNDER A MINUTE’ BY COPS WHO SHOT SUSPECT: MAYOR

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley says Betts was wearing body armor and had additional high-capacity magazines.  The Oregon District was filled with “thousands” of people out on a weekend night at the time, according to Whaley. Officers were also stationed in the neighborhood and were able to halt the rampage less than a minute after it began, the mayor added.

“If Dayton police had not gotten to the shooter in under a minute — and figure that 26 injured, 9 dead — hundreds of people in the Oregon District could be dead today,” Whaley told reporters.

Former FBI Response Team member explains how authorities will process El Paso evidence

Westlake Legal Group el-paso Former FBI Response Team member explains how authorities will process El Paso evidence Nick Givas fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 9e047fbf-741e-5416-a4ad-8b48eb3e8b51

Former FBI response team member Maureen O’Connell detailed on Saturday to Fox News how federal law enforcement officials will examine evidence following the deadly shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, that left 20 dead and 26 injured.

Anchor Leland Vittert said federal authorities had left the bodies of the victims inside the store for more than 10 hours after the shooting and asked what they will have to do to ascertain vital evidence going forward.

“Part of that has to do with the trajectory of the rounds that were fired and the bodies have to remain in place until they can really get those details down in a way that can be used in a court of law. And the evidence will have to be packaged properly,” she replied.

“They’re going to have to measure the way the victims fell and try to figure out exactly where the coward was standing when he fired all of those rounds. It’s a very laborious task but it’s the most important one because the evidence has got to be done right, and the FBI’s ERT team will always do it right.”

O’Connell also said authorities will be searching the suspect’s home to determine if they can link him to the crime, but claimed the process of building an official case will take more time.

More from Media 

“[They] would then go through the room and clear each room, which takes a bit of time and then when the rooms are all cleared and it’s … safe enough for the ERT team to go in, then they go in. They mark each and every room and every piece of evidence is photographed in place, identified, logged and then packaged,” she said.

“Again it’s very laborious and very meticulous. But it is really important, impactful work and the gravity of that is understood by the team and they know it’s going to be a long night. They could be in there all night long depending on what they find. If they are finding ammunition and rounds and — he could have had the whole basement to himself.”

The suspected gunman murdered 20 people and injured 26 on Saturday, after he calmly walked into the store and opened fire, Texas, state and city officials said.

The suspect has not been publicly named, but two law enforcement officials identified him to The Associated Press as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas.

Investigators have examined a manifesto that may have been written by the shooter which would indicate a “nexus to a hate crime.” The suspect is expected to face capital murder charges.

Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, and President Trump have been briefed on the shooting and are in direct contact with one another, with Trump pledging the “total support” of the federal government.

Boy, 6, drowns in wave pool at Florida water park, officials say

A 6-year-old boy drowned at a water park in Florida on Saturday after he was pulled out of a wave pool, according to officials.

Daytona Lagoon, located in Daytona Beach, said in a Facebook post the incident happened Saturday shortly before 1 p.m. when the boy was discovered in a wave pool.

The child was taken out and CPR was performed by lifeguards in addition to “other lifesaving maneuvers” before EMTs arrived at the scene to transport the boy to an area hospital.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family right now,” Tyler Currie, General Manager of Daytona Lagoon said in a statement posted to Facebook. “This is a tragedy that leaves us all with heavy hearts.”

Witnesses told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that other water park guests, including a doctor, helped lifeguards with chest compressions as they waited for first responders to arrive.

The next day, Longmont Deputy Police Chief Jeff Satur spotted Sampson walking with a couple in town. “I was like, ‘Oh, there he is!’ I recognized him right away,” he told KCNC-TV.

The couple said a woman gave them Sampson.

Investigators eventually linked Mellon to the dog theft when a woman called police early Thursday, claiming her truck had been stolen. Police said they eventually found Mellon sleeping inside the truck.

Police say the woman lied about her name and kicked two officers as they tried to take her to a hospital. Investigators claimed that when she was medically cleared and transported to the Boulder County Jail, “intentionally urinated and spit inside the patrol vehicle.”

Mellon reportedly faces charges of auto theft, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest on top of the outstanding warrants.

Sampson, Corbey’s therapy dog, was reunited with his family. “It feels like we have a piece of my uncle having Sampson back,” Corbey’s niece, Kelly Pleffner, told the news outlet.

Fox News reporter Garrett Tenney shared an emotional account from outside the scene of the deadly shooting in El Paso Saturday evening and said one of the victims told him his mother had perished in the carnage.

“It paints a picture for you of what this entire community is going through, including those witnesses that we spoke to earlier at the scene,” Tenney told Fox News.

“Just within moments, a son had dropped off his mother at the front of that Walmart so that she could walk in while he drove to find a parking spot. By the time he parked his car, he heard the gunshots ring out. And he got out, ran inside. By the time he got there, he said he saw his mother laying there on the floor with a dozen or so other people, dead, blood all over the floor. And all he could say to me was, ‘my mom is dead. My mom.’ And that gives you a sense of the loss and the depths of loss in this community, for so many people.”

Tenney also said there were people still searching for their loved ones amongst the chaos, specifically one family who hadn’t heard from their elderly mother after she left the house to go shopping.

“A lot of folks [are] still filled with hope that they’ll be able to find their loved ones,” he said. “There are those also who are filled with desperation, just in the depths of it, searching for answers about their loved ones. There were three women that just came here and they said they are still looking for their [87-year-old] mother … They said she left for Walmart this morning and they have not heard from her since. They are desperate for answers.”

“One of the daughters came up, just sobbing, yelling — saying ‘I just want to know where she is. I want to know if she is alive or if she is dead. Where is her body?’ A lot of folks here are in that situation. 3,000 people inside that Walmart, a lot of folks are still searching for answers to know whether their loved ones are still with them or not,” Tenney added.

The gunman murdered 20 people and injured 26 on Saturday, after he calmly walked into the store and opened fire, Texas, state and city officials said.

The suspect has not been publicly named, but two law enforcement officials identified him to The Associated Press as 21-year-old Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas.

Investigators have examined a manifesto that may have been written by the shooter which would indicate a “nexus to a hate crime.” The suspect is expected to face capital murder charges.

Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, and President Trump have been briefed on the shooting and are in direct contact with one another, with Trump pledging the “total support” of the federal government.

Harvard Law prof accuses Trump of ‘terrorism,’ calls for impeachment after shootings

Westlake Legal Group Laurence20Tribe Harvard Law prof accuses Trump of 'terrorism,' calls for impeachment after shootings Ronn Blitzer fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc f61bea0b-8080-57be-aa65-7853ee88384a article

Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe has a history of passionate opposition to President Trump and calling for his impeachment, and he continued the trend Sunday by blaming Trump for a pair of shootings that took place over the weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Tribe first said that Trump should be impeached for inciting violent acts, then took it a step further and outright accused the president of the United States of terrorism.

DERSHOWITZ, TRIBE SPAR OVER IMPEACHMENT: YOU’D HAVE ‘GONE APOPLECTIC’ IF CLINTONS RECEIVED SAME TREATMENT

“How many more people have to DIE violent deaths at racist hands before impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence is taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice? The real national emergency is Donald J. Trump’s terrorism,” Tribe tweeted Sunday morning.

Democrats such as presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke accused Trump of encouraging racism, but Tribe went so far as to imply that the president may have committed high crimes or misdemeanors and should be removed from office for taking an active role in supporting racist violence.

When asked for an explanation by Fox News, Tribe did not go into any legal analysis, but said, “There is an alarming pattern of incitements that together warrant being taken seriously in conjunction with other, more specific, offenses.”

The professor included a link to a video of a Trump rally, which was meant to be an example. In it, the president was discussing migrant caravans. Trump asked what to do, and someone in the crowd yelled, “Shoot them!” Trump shook his head, then joked, “Only in the panhandle you can get away with that statement.” Immediately prior to the person’s outburst, Trump noted that “we can’t let [border patrol agents] use weapons. Other countries do, I would never do that.”

BETO O’ROURKE SAYS TRUMP’S RHETORIC IN PART TO BLAME FOR EL PASO MASS SHOOTING

The video had been posted as a reply to Tribe’s tweet, but has since been removed.

Tribe subsequently clarified by saying that he is not saying that Trump “should be impeached” for “racist incitements alone,” rather that “impeaching the president for inciting white nationalist terrorism and violence [should be] taken as seriously as impeaching him for obstructing justice.”

“It’s the pattern of abuses of his office as president that is accumulating, in my view, to a strong basis for formal impeachment proceedings beyond what various House committees are already conducting by way of investigating possible Articles of Impeachment,” he said.

In May, the constitutional law professor drew attention for comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler, saying, “the physical and behavioral resemblances aren’t altogether irrelevant.” In 2018, he focused a Constitutional Law course he was teaching on Trump and his hypothetical impeachment.
