Hong Kong faces worst crisis in 20 years, senior Chinese official says

A senior Chinese official said Wednesday that Hong Kong is facing its worst crisis in more than 20 years after months of violent protests that started over a now-suspended controversial extradition law.

“Hong Kong’s crisis … has continued for 60 days, and is getting worse and worse,” Zhang Xiaoming, the head of China’s Hong Kong and Macau Affairs office, said, according to Reuters.

Zhang said the violence is intensifying in an upheaval unlike anything seen since Hong Kong returned from British to Chinese rule in 1997, Reuters reported.

The protests started in April when millions took to the streets to protest the extradition law, which would have allowed Hong Kong residents to be tried in Communist mainland China. The protesters have since called for Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam to resign.

China said Tuesday the “unscrupulous and violent criminal” protesters would be punished.

The protesters have also said they “strongly condemn the lawlessness and the inhuman actions done by police.”\

Texas Speaker apologizes for alleged comments about Republican colleagues in secret recording: report

The Texas House Speaker apologized Tuesday for “terrible things” he allegedly said about House colleagues on a secretly recorded conversation with a conservative activist, reports said.

Speaker Dennis Bonnen, a Republican, sent out an apology email to the 149 members of the state House. The apology stemmed from his alleged remarks during a June meeting with Michael Quinn Sullivan, a conservative activist. He was also with state Rep. Dustin Burrows.

“I was stupid to take a meeting with an individual who has worked hard to divide our House,” Bonnen said in an email addressed to House members Tuesday. “I said terrible things that are embarrassing to the members, to the House, and to me personally.”

Sullivan, the CEO of Empower Texans, a conservative non-profit focused on promoting free-market principles in the state, claimed that Bonnen and Burrows spoke about offering his organization House media credentials in exchange for making attacks against a “hit list” of 10 Republican House members they wanted to target during to 2020 election primary election, the Texas Tribune reported.

Bonnen admitted to trash-talking fellow Republicans in Tuesday’s email but did not mention the alleged list. He previously denied the existence of the list and demanded Sullivan make the full recording public. Meanwhile, Sullivan has privately played the tape to several House Republicans, the report said.

State Rep. Tan Parker, a Republican on the alleged list, said that he listened to the secret recording and can confirm that Bonnen and Burrows “did engage in targeting specific members of the Republican Caucus.”

“I find this reckless ambition to be absolutely disgusting. Their actions directly contradict the bylaws and culture of our Caucus. The disparaging commentary that was also heard was the epitome of disrespect and a clear attack on the values of the Republican Party and the integrity we have established in the Texas House,” Parker said.

Bonnen’s office did not immediately respond to an after-business-hours email from Fox News.

More than two dozen state House Republicans said on Twitter that they accepted Bonnen’s apology and benefitted under his leadership, the Texas Tribune reported. Bonnen promised to meet with House members individually in the coming weeks.

Trump trashes Beto O’Rourke, tells him to ‘be quiet’ ahead of El Paso visit

President Trump issued a fiery tweet late Tuesday for 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke ahead of his visit to the Democrat’s hometown of El Paso, Texas, following last weekend’s shooting that left 22 dead. 

Over the past several days, O’Rourke has slammed the president, who he has placed blame for the massacre. The former congressman declared that Trump is a “racist” and compared his language to Nazi Germany’s Third Reich. He also compared Trump’s North Carolina rally– where the “send her back” chant took place– to “Nuremberg.”

BETO O’ROURKE COMPARES TRUMP RALLY TO NAZI GERMANY IN WAKE OF EL PASO SHOOTING

“That is a leader reveling in the hatred and the racism of the people that he purports to serve and to lead,” O’Rourke said Monday.

Trump responded to O’Rourke and claimed the candidate is using a “phony name” in an attempt to appeal to voters.

“Beto (phony name to indicate Hispanic heritage) O’Rourke, who is embarrassed by my last visit to the Great State of Texas, where I trounced him, and is now even more embarrassed by polling at 1 percent in the Democrat Primary, should respect the victims & law enforcement – & be quiet!” Trump wrote in a late-night tweet.

The president referred to the rally he held in El Paso back in February amid the national debate about the migration crisis and had previously boasted his crowd size in comparison to O’Rourke, who held a competing rally on the same night.

Homeowner put emojis on her home to mock neighbors, they claim

Westlake Legal Group emojis Homeowner put emojis on her home to mock neighbors, they claim fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox news fnc/us fnc Brie Stimson article a6ed8a0b-404d-5972-bcd9-ba6aca9dd42a

Residents in a Southern California city council meeting on Tuesday said a homeowner painted her house hot pink with two giant yellow emojis on the front to get back at them, and they are asking the city to act, according to a report.

The homeowner, Kathryn Kidd, is using the house as a short-term vacation rental, which is illegal in Manhattan Beach in southwestern Los Angeles County, according to one neighbor. She was fined $4,000 by the city, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Neighbors say the emojis – one sticking its tongue out and another with its mouth zipped shut  – are meant to mock them.

“It’s about one homeowner saying F-U to the person she blames for her plight and F-U to the rest of the street,” one neighbor said.

CALIFORNIA MAN CLAIMS SWASTIKA LAWN DISPLAY IS ‘TIBET SYMBOL’ AMID NEIGHBORS’ COMPLAINTS

The emojis were spray-painted onto the home in May by local artist Z the Art after Kidd was fined.

Kidd told Easy Rider News the emojis weren’t meant to offend anyone. “I did it for the purpose of being happy, being positive, and I think it’s cute and quirky and kind of funny, and certainly was a time for the emoji.”

Kidd doesn’t live in the home, The Los Angeles Times reported. She reportedly lives somewhere else in Manhattan Beach.

She added that she’s not breaking any laws with the emojis.

City Attorney Mike Estrada said the city has “very little, if any” authority over murals on homes. according to The Times.

Neighbors are also considering whether the emojis could be categorized as graffiti or violate signage laws.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took on Democrats Tuesday night for what she said is an attempt to capitalize politically on the shooting massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio last weekend, and said she would not allow “the left” to divide Americans and distract from real solutions to real problems.

“We should not, and we will not, allow the political hucksters of the left to separate us or distract us from addressing these real problems that need practical, workable solutions,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

TRUMP CONDEMNS ‘WHITE SUPREMACY,’ CALLS FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND GUN REFORMS AFTER DOUBLE MASS SHOOTINGS

“Let’s not give either an evil racist force or a lunatic left wing nut any satisfaction by turning on one another in the wake of these heinous acts of domestic terror,” she said.

Ingraham accused Democrats of using the tragedies to silence and marginalize President Trump and his supporters. She also called their attempt to equate Trump’s border policies with racism as “obscene.”

“Now conflating the evil racism of a deranged killer with Trump’s reasonable and much-needed call for border security is not just offensive, it’s absolutely obscene,” Ingraham said.

More from Fox News Media

The host said “the left” is now branding “half the population” as racists and making them targets, warning Democrats that their actions will only lead to people getting hurt.

“This is a campaign of intimidation. And I’m telling you it’s going to end up getting more people hurt,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham brought up “left-wing” protesters showing up at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s house and shouting death threats as an example of Democrats inciting their base.

“They are throwing kerosene on this fire and the end game is to drive those who disagree with them underground,” Ingraham warned.

AOC-backed candidate Tiffany Cabán concedes defeat in Queens DA race

Queens district attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán conceded defeat Tuesday night — six weeks after the Democratic primary election that pitted her against the establishment-backed Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.

“We terrified the Democratic establishment,” Cabán told her supporters at a party in Astoria.

“We showed [that] you can run on a boldly decarceral platform,” she added referring to her criminal justice reforms. “You don’t have to play by the old rules.”

In a back-and-forth race that saw both candidates declare victory, the insurgent lawyer fought to the very end challenging dozens of invalidated affidavit ballots in court that she said were improperly excluded.

But after several attempts to claw back — including at a judicial hearing earlier Tuesday — she bowed out after it became clear she’d be unable to erase the 60-vote gap separating her and Katz.

“There’s still so, so much work to be done here in Queens — and you better believe I’m going to keep fighting,” Cabán said.

The Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-backed candidate shocked the city on June 25 when she appeared to beat Katz, a veteran Queens politician, by 1,100 votes on primary night. But the tables flipped when the Board of Elections tallied the absentee ballots and many of the provisionally cast ballots, giving Katz the lead.

Last Monday, the Board of Elections declared Katz the victor. The certified results showed Katz winning 34,920 votes, a razor-thin edge over Cabán’s 34,860. Katz now becomes the heavy favorite to win the job in the November general election in the increasingly left-leaning borough.

Catholic archbishop deletes tweets telling Trump to ‘stop racism, starting with yourself’

A Roman Catholic archbishop on Monday tweeted that President Trump needs to “stop racism, starting with yourself” in the wake of Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 22 people, reports said.

San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller posted several tweets to his personal account, calling the president “poor” and “weak” and saying he has done “too much damage already,” The San Antonio Express-News reported.

The tweets were deleted Tuesday morning. The archbishop left up several others that alluded to the dangers of racist rhetoric, including one that referred to the “selfishness of many in power” that has led to “destruction and pain.”

Jason Chaffetz: To stop more shootings, stop erasing criminal records of juveniles prone to violence

Westlake Legal Group Ohio-Shooting-Officer-thumb Jason Chaffetz: To stop more shootings, stop erasing criminal records of juveniles prone to violence Jason Chaffetz fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox-news/us/crime fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc ecf614cc-92ab-5ff9-be90-f819c0adb6d2 article

The mass shooter in Dayton, Ohio who was killed by police early Sunday after he shot nine people to death and wounded more than a dozen fit the now-familiar profile of the troubled youth with a well-documented history of threats dating back to high school.

The Dayton gunman had a “kill list” and had interacted with law enforcement as a minor, authorities said.

Similarly, the man charged with killing 17 people and wounding 17 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., last year was also well known to high school counselors and local police before he turned 18, police said.

DAYTON SHOOTER WAS ‘EXPLORING VIOLENT IDEOLOGIES,’ INVESTIGATORS SAY

They are not alone. The pattern of mass shooters whose violent rhetoric began as minors is not new. But once these kids reach that magical age of 18, no background check will detect the red flags that signal the potential for violence.

More from Opinion

The time has come to change the way we deal with the records of troubled juveniles once they legally become adults. No longer should we simply expunge information symptomatic of violence that may be yet to come. 

The time has come to change the way we deal with the records of troubled juveniles once they legally become adults. No longer should we simply expunge information symptomatic of violence that may be yet to come.

Every high school has students who are sometimes immature, easily triggered, or who simply make big mistakes. But beyond the typical drug and alcohol infractions, truancy issues, or fights in the parking lot, there are kids with much more serious issues.
 
CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

These are students who issue explicit threats, engage in violence, torture or kill animals, assault a parent or sibling, or engage in a host of other more heinous acts of aggression.

In some cases these students suffer from mental health issues that make them fundamentally incapable of distinguishing right from wrong – and their parents, school officials and law enforcement officials often know it. 
 
At what point do such behaviors become too serious to erase? If these problems manifest in adults, they can show up in a federal background check.

Last year President Trump signed into law the Fix NICS Act to ensure states submit information to an FBI database in a timely manner involving individuals who are prohibited from owning a firearm.

But what about students who were minors at the time of their infractions? They don’t show up in that database. They should.
 
The ability of such kids to legally purchase a firearm on their 18th birthday should be delayed until their case can be further adjudicated, if requested. Society could later consider restoring the constitutional right to bear arms, but only after review by a judge or some period of time (perhaps 10 years) passes with no additional infractions or serious mental health red flags.

We should debate where to draw the lines, but the notion that all is erased at the age of 18 no longer makes sense.
 
Unlike many current gun control proposals, which do not address the causes of previous mass shootings, rethinking the way we manage juvenile disciplinary and mental health records could stop future would-be shooters from legally obtaining weapons.
 
Let’s also recognize the need to enforce the current laws. All too often “prosecutorial discretion” hampers the pursuit of gun cases, because the courts are clogged and convictions of gun crimes don’t build the resumes of prosecutors looking to advance their careers.

We need to enforce our laws and create a record for violent criminals. If a violent criminal record is erased when juveniles turn 18, they can pass a criminal background check they have no business passing. 
 
Let’s also not pretend we are just one gun law away from stopping the next mass shooter. In every shooting there are many factors contributing to the breakdown. Government can address some of these factors, but not all of them. Government alone is not going to solve this.
 
Communities, churches, parents, schools, and social media all play a role. But today’s pop culture laughs at religion, mocks marriage, disparages schools and law enforcement, and glorifies social media.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Our society has some deep soul searching to do to appreciate that a moral society, coupled with individual freedoms, is what will make our country safer. 
 
Though President Trump has already signed into law some meaningful reforms addressing rampage violence, there is more we can do. With so many young adult shooters having manifest violent tendencies as minors, we can do more to identify violent kids and prevent them from legally accessing guns when they turn 18.

Lawrence Jones traveled to Chicago to ask residents there about the weekend shootings that left seven dead and 52 injured.

Some residents speculated about why the media appeared to largely ignore the violence in the Windy City amid two other mass casualty events in Dayton and El Paso, Jones said Tuesday on “Hannity.”

“I think that people have gotten used to this being synonymous with Chicago,” one resident said of the weekend bloodshed.

Another resident used an expletive to describe the dichotomy, adding, “that’s sad.”

“They don’t care,” another man told Jones.

“It’s a race thing — they don’t care.”

When asked whether the focus may shift to Chicago in the near future, one woman was not confident.

“I don’t see it changing real soon,” she said.

In addition, a resident told Jones they believed the dissolution of the “family unit” was to blame for the uptick in neighborhood violence on the city’s south side.

Another neighbor suggested the state of Illinois deploy the National Guard to quell the violence.

In summarizing his interviews, Jones told host Sean Hannity the entire situation in Chicago was troubling to witness.

“It’s very clear that the south side of Chicago are treated now like the step-children of America,” he said. “They’re outraged.”

South Carolina teen charged after threatening videos, report says

A 16-year-old boy who called himself “a hater of all black men” and shot several black boxes that he said represented African-Americans in a series of videos was charged with making threats, according to media reports.

He also threated to shoot up the South Carolina private Catholic school where he was a student during the summer, authorities told The State newspaper in Columbia.

The teen – whose name has not been released because of his age – was expelled and banned from Cardinal Newman School property, the school said.

The videos were created in May, according to the paper. The school notified authorities in July.

“The next few days may be challenging for Cardinal Newman School, so I ask your prayers for our students, teachers, staff and administration,” Principal Robert Loia wrote in a letter sent out Friday night.

Diocese of Charleston spokeswoman Maria Aselage said church officials determined the danger to students was minimal since the school was out and police were investigating.

On Monday, many parents at a morning meeting with Loia criticized the school for failing to notify them about the videos last spring.

“I realize now that I should have communicated with you immediately when I learned a violent threat had been made against our school community,” Loia wrote in a letter released Monday night.
