Inslee quickly announces re-election bid for governor after dropping out of White House race

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6074828961001_6074829848001-vs Inslee quickly announces re-election bid for governor after dropping out of White House race Paul Steinhauser fox-news/us/us-regions/west/washington fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9f92db88-44ad-518a-bf2c-d581e674c3fc

Hours after ending his presidential campaign, two-term Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington State announced he’s running for re-election next year.

“I want to continue to stand with you in opposing Donald Trump and rejecting his hurtful and divisive agenda, while strengthening and enhancing Washington state’s role as a progressive beacon for the nation,” Inslee wrote Thursday in an email to supporters, as he launched his gubernatorial re-election campaign.

CLIMATE CRUSADER GOV. JAY INSLEE DROPS OUT OF WHITE HOUSE RACE

Touting his tenure as governor, Inslee highlighted that “our great success as a state these last few years gives me confidence that we can continue to lead the nation in so many ways. Our multiple accomplishments have paved the way for much to come in the next term.”

The longtime climate change crusader and former congressman pulled the plug on his White House bid on Wednesday night, noting it had “become clear” he didn’t have a shot at winning the primary.

While he had reached the fundraising threshold to make the stage at the next round of Democratic presidential debates in September, he was nowhere close to hitting the polling criteria – and it was clear he wouldn’t qualify for the debate ahead of next week’s deadline.

INSLEE LABELS PRESIDENT TRUMP A ‘WHITE NATIONALIST’

Inslee, 68, became the third Democrat to end his presidential bid this summer. Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper dropped out last week and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California ended his bid last month.

Even with the departures of Inslee, Hickenlooper, and Swalwell, there are still some 20 Democrats running for their party’s presidential nomination.

In announcing his re-election run, Inslee highlighted his failed presidential campaign, saying “It has been a profound honor to represent our state on the national stage in the presidential race. I am grateful for the opportunity to have told the country about Washington state’s successful model of progressive action we are building together.”

Three Democrats – state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz, and King County Executive Dow Constantine – had indicated they would be interested in running for governor if Inslee didn’t run for re-election.

Ferguson quickly endorsed Inslee on Thursday.

Three Republicans have already jumped into their party’s gubernatorial primary. No GOP candidate has won an election for governor in the blue state in more than three decades.

Governors in Washington state aren’t subject to term limits, though most haven’t served more than two terms. The last three-term governor in Washington was Republican Gov. Dan Evans, who served from 1965 until 1977.

Lori Loughlin keeping ‘meticulous records’ on college scam case ahead of trial: report

Westlake Legal Group 10_AP19093657677390 Lori Loughlin keeping 'meticulous records' on college scam case ahead of trial: report Jessica Sager fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/college-admissions-scandal fox-news/person/mossimo-giannulli fox-news/person/lori-loughlin fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc bcf7ce04-60c4-5848-8922-8d0e438b60b5 article

Lori Loughlin was once obsessed with getting her daughters into the University of Southern California (USC). Now, the former “Fuller House” star is said to be obsessed with her upcoming trial in the college admissions scandal case, a new report claims.

A source close to the actress told People, “Lori is obsessing over every detail of the case. She’s not working, she’s not doing anything. She’s just reading the files again and again.”

The fixation is so severe, in fact, that the insider says, “The family was told to remove their Google alerts and to stop searching their names because it’s not good for them to see what’s being said. But this is a full-time concern of hers.”

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S OPTIONS ARE ‘LIMITED’ AFTER PLEADING NOT GUILTY IN COLLEGE SCAM

Loughlin, 55, is reportedly keeping “meticulous records” on the case and examining other defendants and their respective cases very closely. “She wants to know who is getting what punishment and how their cases differ from hers,” the source explained.

MOSSIMO GIANNULLI, LORI LOUGHLIN HATE ‘CHEATER’ LABEL IN COLLEGE SCAM

EXPERTS WEIGH IN ON LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S REPORTED CRIMINAL DEFENSE STRATEGY

In March, the erstwhile Hallmark Channel star and husband,  Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 to admissions scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the USC crew team despite neither girl being a coxswain. The girls’ enrollment statuses at USC were put on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

LORI LOUGHLIN ‘CONFIDENT’ SHE WON’T GO TO PRISON FOR ALLEGED COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCAM

The pair rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case — including Felicity Huffman — accepted. They were then hit with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and now face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted of all counts and charges.

Loughlin and Giannulli, 56, are due in court on Monday, where they will reportedly waive their rights to separate attorneys.

“Giannulli and Loughlin are innocent of the charges brought against them and are eager to clear their names,” the couple’s attorneys wrote in a filing last month. “And they believe their interests will be advanced most effectively by presenting a united front against the government’s baseless accusations.”

Loughlin and Giannulli’s attorneys continued in their filing that contrary to the typical legal belief, “a common defense often gives strength against a common attack … Whatever happens, Giannulli and Loughlin will have their interests fully protected, and the case will proceed without undue delay.”

Dem senator hit with bar complaint for ‘openly threatening’ Supreme Court

Westlake Legal Group whitehouse_sheldon Dem senator hit with bar complaint for ‘openly threatening’ Supreme Court Ronn Blitzer fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox news fnc/politics fnc article 1b0e6556-625c-5177-9397-b35cb8e5a077

Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has accused Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., of “openly threatening the U.S. Supreme Court” in a complaint brought before the Rhode Island Judiciary.

The complaint pertains to a sternly worded brief he and other senators recently filed to the high court warning the justices to “heal” or face the possibility of restructuring. The Judicial Watch filing accuses Whitehouse of improperly performing legal work while the status of his license is inactive, as well as engaging in misconduct with the warning they directed at the court.

SENATE DEMS DELIVER STUNNING WARNING TO SUPREME COURT: ‘HEAL’ OR FACE RESTRUCTURING

“[T]he brief Senator Whitehouse filed was unbecoming of the legal profession as it is nothing more than an attack on the federal judiciary and an open threat to the U.S. Supreme Court,” Judicial Watch’s complaint said.

The brief — which also bore the names of Sens. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii; Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.; Richard Durbin, D-Ill.; and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. — named Whitehouse as “Counsel of Record.” Judicial Watch attached a copy of a Rhode Island Judiciary record that lists Whitehouse’s attorney status as inactive. Fox News has confirmed that the current record still shows the inactive status.

As a result, the organization claimed, Whitehouse engaged in the unauthorized practice of law when he filed the brief.

Judicial Watch noted that Whitehouse is not licensed to practice law anywhere else, though he did list a Washington, D.C., address on the brief. The organization claimed that if Whitehouse meant to indicate that he was acting as an attorney in D.C. and not Rhode Island, this, too, would be an unauthorized practice of law.

A representative from Whitehouse’s office told Fox News, “Senator Whitehouse is a member of the Supreme Court bar and filed nothing in Rhode Island,” adding, “This attack group has no credibility.”

LINDSEY GRAHAM SLAMS DEM COLLEAGUES FOR BRAZEN WARNING TO SUPREME COURT

On top of the allegations based on the status of Whitehouse’s law license, the complaint took issue with the substance of the brief, which Judicial Watch alleged “violated the Rhode Island Rules of Professional Conduct by attacking the federal judiciary and openly threatening the U.S. Supreme Court.”

The brief accused the Supreme Court of issuing rulings based on politics and not the law. It concluded by claiming, “The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’”

This was widely considered to be a warning that if the Supreme Court did not change its ways, Congress could expand the court by increasing the number of justices through a process known as court-packing. Several Democratic presidential candidates have supported this concept, even though Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out against it, telling NPR in July, “Nine seems to be a good number.”

“Such a threat violates the spirit if not the letter of Rhode Island’s Rules of Professional Conduct,” the complaint stated, citing the Rules’ preamble, which prohibits using the law “to harass or intimidate others,” and says, “A lawyer should demonstrate respect for the legal system and for those who serve it, including judges.”

Whitehouse’s brief was met with condemnation from figures on both ends of the political spectrum. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed to make sure Democrats never achieve their goal of expanding the court.

“When you hear Democrats talking about expanding the Supreme Court……..they are talking about making the Court more liberal,” Graham said in a tweet. “This has been a Dream of the Left for decades. I will do everything in my power to ensure that dream is NEVER fulfilled!”

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, a well-known liberal voice and fierce critic of the Trump administration, also came out against the Democrats on this issue, calling Whitehouse’s brief “inappropriately — and stupidly — threatening,” even though he is “usually a fan of” the senator.

Should the Rhode Island Judiciary’s Disciplinary Board decide to investigate and take action against Whitehouse, he could face discipline ranging from public censure to disbarment, although the latter is typically reserved for egregious violations.

Obamas placed an offer on ‘mega-expensive’ estate in Martha’s Vineyard: report

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-354acffa1e6549b3a9a8eaf976d1ffb3 Obamas placed an offer on 'mega-expensive' estate in Martha's Vineyard: report Sam Dorman fox-news/real-estate fox-news/person/barack-obama fox news fnc/politics fnc article 11a8df19-0be7-54f2-8470-b957d6616350

Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, reportedly made an offer on a 29-acre estate in Martha’s Vineyard after renting it from Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck over the summer.

According to TMZ, the “mega-expensive” estate sits on the beach, has two guest wings, seven guest rooms, and 6,900 square feet. Although the property is listed at $14,850,000, sources told TMZ the Obamas were paying “less.”

The Obamas previously purchased a nine-bedroom house Washington, D.C. That 2017 purchase cost them $8.1 million.

While the pair is currently in escrow, the deal could fall apart due to unspecified “contingencies,” according to the outlet. The news came as the former first family seemed poised to continue raking in millions from a variety of other opportunities.

OBAMA’S HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL JERSEY SELLS FOR $120G AT AUCTION

The former president, who had a net worth of about $40 million in 2018, teamed up with his wife to create a documentary that’s been labeled their “first big anti-Trump statement of 2020.”

The documentary focuses on a Chinese billionaire who opens a factory “in the husk” of an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring 2,000 blue-collar Americans.

Michelle Obama already received a $65 million book advance for her memoir, “Becoming,” while the pair also scored a $50 million deal with Netflix. According to the New York Post, Michelle Obama commands $225,000 in speaking fees and, with her husband, could now be worth as much as $135 million.

While the former president has stayed relatively quiet amid attacks from President Trump, he’s occasionally spoken out on events like the mass shootings in both El Paso and Dayton.

Obama has notably refrained from wading into 2020 presidential politics and refused to endorse his former vice president, Joe Biden, for the Democratic Party’s nomination.

In August, a report surfaced that the former president told Biden in early 2019 that he didn’t have to run for president. Obama reportedly pushed back on a 2016 run for Biden because, in part, he thought former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be more effective in continuing his legacy.

Miley Cyrus gets tattoo to commemorate her Italian vacation with Kaitlynn Carter

Westlake Legal Group miley-cyrus-kaitlynn-carter-instagram Miley Cyrus gets tattoo to commemorate her Italian vacation with Kaitlynn Carter Tyler McCarthy The Sun fox-news/person/miley-cyrus fnc/entertainment fnc article 7eaffa1a-9da7-51c0-88b5-4e44eef07090

Miley Cyrus has commemorated her recent getaway with Kaitlynn Jenner by getting a tattoo.

While most people may buy a souvenir, the singer, 26, took their romantic trip one step further by inking her arm with the biscoine- the emblem of the House of Visconti and the symbol of the city of Milan.

Sharing a snap of Miley’s new tatt on Instagram, her tattoo artist Dr. Woo gave showed off his latest work.

He wrote: “Cool old sculpture @mileycyrus found in Italy #hideawayatsuitex #slimneedle.”

The tattoo shows a snake consuming a child, but followers went on to confirm its true meaning.

MILEY CYRUS ‘DISAPPOINTED’ LIAM HEMSWORTH FILED FOR DIVORCE: REPORT

One wrote: “This is the Visconti (simbol the city of Milan) coat of arms! Beautiful, dream of a tattoo made by you.”

Another confirmed: “Italian Visconti family crest!”

Miley’s new inking comes weeks after the actress, who recently announced her split from husband Liam Hemsworth, was caught locking lips with Kaitlynn Carter, 30.

The pair were spotted getting close on a yacht in Lake Como during a girls’ getaway, just days before Miley revealed she had split from her husband of seven months.

And while sources close to the singer claim that she “wants to start a relationship” with the blonde, Kaitlynn’s ex, Brody Jenner, seemingly confirmed the stars are already together.

Sharing a snap of a weed bouquet from Lowell Farms on Instagram Stories, Brody showed off the couple’s joint present as he celebrated his 36th birthday.

The personally-written card from the pair wrote: “Brody, weed like to wish you a happy birthday. Love you.”

Kaitlynn and Brody split a year after they were married in an unofficial ceremony in Indonesia last August.

TMZ reported that the blonde beauty wanted to start a family and make their nuptials legally binding but Brody decided against both.

MILEY CYRUS SPOTTED ‘BASICALLY HAVING SEX’ WITH KAITLYNN CARTER AT CLUB: REPORT

Last week, it was reported Miley and her new squeeze “basically had sex” all over a Hollywood club.

Speaking to Page Six, a source revealed: “They were kissing and making out everywhere. In the bathroom, at the bar, in the middle of the floor. They were basically having sex. There’s no question they’re together.”

The news of Miley’s quick moving relationship will no doubt come as a blow to actor Liam, 29, who filed for divorce this week.

The Aussie movie hunk filed legal documents citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to TMZ.

TMZ later reported that Miley battled “valiantly” to save her and Liam’s seven-month marriage, but struggled to accept his heavy drinking and “use of certain drugs” – which he has strongly denied.

The website claimed her own past substance abuse battle made drug use a “deal breaker”.

While it initially appeared Miley and Liam’s split was amicable, things seem to have turned nasty as their respective camps pumped out their versions over caused the break-up.

Meanwhile, his pals responded “bulls***’ to claims that his alleged hard partying was to blame, insisting her ‘infidelity” with Carter was the last nail in the coffin.

Jamie Foxx denies Sela Vave dating rumors following Katie Holmes split

Westlake Legal Group FoxxVave1 Jamie Foxx denies Sela Vave dating rumors following Katie Holmes split Tyler McCarthy fox-news/entertainment/events/couples fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 51e1cd06-0e06-5919-9660-875eaeff5911

Jamie Foxx is vehemently denying rumors that he started dating singer Sela Vave following his split from Katie Holmes.

The duo sparked dating rumors after they were spotted holding hands outside a nightclub in Los Angeles shortly after news broke of the 51-year-old actor and musician’s split from his celebrity girlfriend of six years.

In a lengthy video posted to Instagram Live, reshared by Vave herself, Foxx, 51, explains that she is merely another singer that he took under his wing.

JAMIE FOXX AND KATIE HOLMES SPLIT AFTER 6 YEARS TOGETHER: REPORT

“When I met Ed Sheeran, I didn’t know him from Adam. He slept on my couch for six weeks — he ended up going on to do great things,” Foxx began. “Nick Cannon was 13 years old, he would sleep in my old house. Before Ne-Yo was Ne-Yo, he would come to the crib. Everybody comes to my crib, no matter who you are.”

Foxx explains that he heard Vave, who is said to be about 21 years old, sing and decided to support her career. However, he denies that there’s anything romantic between them given that she’s roughly the same age has his daughter.

“People try to make mountains out of molehills. We want to treat her the same way and give her the same opportunities,” he explains in the video.

He also acknowledged the photos of them holding hands.

“I’m escorting her to my car, to put her in the car — my artist, who hangs out with my kids and is as young as my daughters,” he said.

Vave also shared a note to fans explaining that the stream of hate she’s received since the photo went viral has been challenging, but vowed not to let it affect her career or professional relationship with Foxx.

JAMIE FOXX REPORTEDLY DATING SELA VAVE, MODEL AND SINGER FROM UTAH

“For the people who care… here is the TRUE story(swipe)… for everyone else you can keep talking and calling me a w—-, slut, homewrecker, thot, gold digger, that I should die, and whatever else you want. Because it doesn’t matter to me, I’m out here to work and do what I love most,” she captioned the video.

[WARNING: The video below contains graphic language]

According to Page Six, Holmes, 40, was overheard at a restaurant discussing Foxx’s outing with friends and revealed that they haven’t been together for months.

“What Jamie does is his business — we haven’t been together for months,” she allegedly said.

Representatives for neither star responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

Foxx was spotted in March exiting Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills with a mysterious woman, sparking speculation about a split from Holmes. According to Us Weekly, the actor stepped out with a mystery blonde just days before his outing with Vave.

Cornell scientists create butter-like spread with a quarter of the calories, ‘minute’ amounts of saturated fat

We can’t yet turn water into wine, but scientists are making strides in their attempts to churn it into butter.

Scientists at Cornell University have reportedly discovered an emulsification process that can turn minuscule amounts of milk fat or vegetable oil into a substance that spreads and feels like butter.

VIDEO OF ANOTHER ICE-CREAM LICKER EMERGES, BUT SUSPECT CLAIMS HIS INNOCENCE

“Imagine 80 percent water in 20 percent oil and we create something with the consistency of butter, with the mouth feel of butter and creaminess of butter,” said Alireza Abbaspourrad, a Cornell assistant professor of food chemistry and ingredient technology, and the lead author of the research published in an American Chemical Society journal in June.

According to the Cornell Chronicle, the emulsion — or rather the “high-internal phase emulsion” (HIPE) — has only 2.8 grams of fat and 25 calories per tablespoon, as compared to butter’s 11 grams of fat and approximately 100 calories in the same amount.

In this early emulsified state, however, the spread only mimics the consistency and appearance of a firm butter-like spread, and not the taste of butter. But that, as Abbaspourrad says, could possibly be augmented with other ingredients to create something new.

“We can add milk protein or plant-based protein, and since the water acts like a carrier, we can adjust for nutrition and load it with vitamins or add flavors,” he told the Cornell Chronicle.

“Essentially, we can create something that makes it feel like butter — and instead of seeing a lot of saturated fat, this has minute amounts.”

Sean Duffy says unions will shrink, ‘lose their health care plans’ under Bernie Sanders

Westlake Legal Group Sanders-Newsroom Sean Duffy says unions will shrink, 'lose their health care plans' under Bernie Sanders Nick Givas fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 59e5ee47-bb4d-53ca-8642-a4f85ade7a57

The policies of 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will cause union members to lose their health insurance and decimate union membership, Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., told “Fox & Friends.”

“The reality is Bernie Sanders actually supports socialism, and we know that socialism will actually decrease union workers and jobs in their field,” he said Thursday.

“Bernie Sanders wants ‘Medicare-for-all,’ and [that] means that union members who have gold-plated health care plans will lose their health care and be forced onto a watered-down Medicare system… his plans won’t grow unions. It’ll actually shrink unions and their jobs.”

BERNIE SANDERS CLAIMS ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL’ WILL SLASH HEALTH CARE COSTS WITH TAX HIKE

Sanders, a Vermont Independent, has proposed a $40 trillion plan, which he claims would save the country money.

“What the most serious economists tell us, that if we do nothing to fundamentally change the health care system, which is what Joe [Biden] was talking about, keeping it as it is, we’ll be spending something like $50 trillion over a 10-year period,” he told The Washington Post. “Times change, and we have got to go further.”

More from Media

Duffy said by forcing Americans into government-run health care plans, Sanders is robbing them of their freedom of choice.

“Bernie understands that people like freedom of choice,” he said. “If you’re going to give them an option that’s one thing. But to force any American, whether you’re union or not, out of a plan that you like, into a government-run plan set up by Bernie Sanders, that is not appealing to the American people.

Lightning strike in Poland, heavy thunderstorm blamed for several deaths, injuries in Tatra Mountains

Several people are dead and a dozen reported injured after lightning struck during a thunderstorm in Poland’s southern Tatra Mountains, officials said.

The TOPR rescue service said rescuers were dispatched to Giewont peak where the group of tourists, including children, had been struck by lightning.

The spokeswoman for Krakow’s provincial governor, Joanna Pazdzio, told The Associated Press at least three people, including a child, were killed in the lightning strike. Pazdzio told the AP she was told about the deaths by the leaders of the rescue operation that was taking place Thursday afternoon in the Tatras.

Lightning typically strikes tall objects such as trees and skyscrapers because their tops are closer to the base of the storm cloud, according to The National Severe Storms Laboratory.

“However, this does not always mean tall objects will be struck. It all depends on where the charges accumulate,” according to the agency. “Lightning can strike the ground in an open field even if the tree line is close by.

Lightning, known as a “bolt from the blue,” can also strike from as far away as 25 miles from a thunderstorm cloud, even when there appear to be clear skies, according to the NSSL.

“They can be especially dangerous because they appear to come from clear blue sky,” the agency states.

Iran unveils new long-range missile system in latest show of military force

Iran unveiled a new long-range surface-to-air missile system Thursday in its latest demonstration of military power, just two months after its forces shot a U.S. Navy drone out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz.

The Bavar-373, which Iran claims was built domestically, “can detect… targets or planes at more than 190 miles, lock in at about 155 miles, and destroy it at 124 miles,” Reuters quoted defense minister Amir Hatami as saying.

President Hassan Rouhani described the system as an improvement to the Russian S-300 system, which Moscow delivered to Iran in 2016.

“Now that our enemies do not accept logic, we cannot respond with logic,” Rouhani said in a televised speech Thursday.

“When the enemy launches a missile against us, we cannot give a speech and say: ‘Mr. Rocket, please do not hit our country and our innocent people,” he added. “Rocket-launching sir, if you can please hit a button and self-destroy the missile in the air.'”

On Wednesday, Iran’s state TV reported that the Bavar-373 is able to recognize up to 100 targets at the same time and confront them with six different weapons.

The unveiling of the system comes two months after a U.S. Navy drone was shot out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz by Iran in what Pentagon officials described as an “unprovoked attack.”

Since 1992, Iran has developed a homegrown defense industry that has produced light and heavy weapons ranging from mortars and torpedoes to tanks and submarines.
