Former CIA officer calls James Comey’s handling of Trump investigation ‘horrifying’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-08-30-at-11.29.51-AM Former CIA officer calls James Comey's handling of Trump investigation 'horrifying' Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections/presidential fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc e625b117-1316-543b-a067-06afac62df18 article

Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright said Friday that James Comey needs to be taken to task for his handling of the President Trump investigation.

“We had an individual that the inspector general report has now said an FBI director [James Comey] leaked information to force a public action; that is, the appointment of a special counsel,” Wright, a Democrat, told “Fox & Friends.”

“Not because the facts demanded it,” Wright continued. “But because he and his own partisan drive desired it. Now that’s horrifying. Not only was that horrifying for Donald Trump (but for) any other president that could’ve been elected in 2016.”

JAMES COMEY VIOLATED FBI POLICIES WITH MEMOS ON TRUMP DISCUSSIONS, IG REPORT SAYS

A scathing inspector general report released Thursday said that fired FBI Director Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, leaking and retaining memos documenting private discussions with President Trump.

The Justice Department’s official watchdog concluded that the memos Comey kept were, in fact, “official FBI records,” and said Comey set a “dangerous example” with his actions.

“The profound concern that I have as an American, forget Democrat or Republican, but especially as an agency officer, we have 35,000 employees in the FBI, tens of thousands of CIA officers, who have access to some of the most profound powers and knowledge in this country,” Wright said.

While the findings of the probe were forwarded to the DOJ, the department has declined prosecution, as Fox News reported earlier this month.

Wright said that he “fears” for the U.S. because of the “precedent” that someone can break the law and face no consequences for it.

“What’s the consequence for their behavior? There is none; they get a book deal,” Wright said.

Texas high school offering ‘Adulting 101’ to teach students ‘how to survive’

Growing up is hard to do – but a school in Texas is aiming to make it a little easier for its students.

‘BACK TO SCHOOL’ ADVICE FROM IOWA SENIOR CITIZENS GOES VIRAL

Round Rock Independent School District’s Cedar Ridge High School is helping set their students up for life with a new class called “Adulting 101.”

The Round Rock school is offering the basic life skills course to all grades, which will aim to teach students how to cook healthy food, write a resume, interview for a job and manage money, among other important lessons.

“We’re teaching them basic skills on how to survive,” said chef Ralph Chavez, who teaches the students cooking skills, to KVUE. “It’s not really high-end culinary stuff, but just when they graduate they’ll know how they’re going to feed themselves.”

The course is reportedly still evolving, and one teacher at the school is hopeful it will add basic automotive skills to the curriculum soon.

WaPo media critic questions if Lawrence O’Donnell is ‘fit’ to host MSNBC show

Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple slammed MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Thursday for presenting “uncorroborated, wish-fulfillment garbage” to viewers and questioned if the far-left pundit is “fit” to continue hosting his show after a now-infamous retraction.

O’Donnell bypassed NBC’s standards when he claimed Tuesday night that President Trump possibly had loans cosigned by Russian oligarchs. O’Donnell has since apologized and retracted the singled-sourced, unverified report after Trump’s legal team sent a fiery letter threatening legal action. However, Wemple pondered if “such a fellow fit to host an MSNBC program” after the “catastrophe.”

NBC, COMCAST SILENT ON LAWRENCE O’DONNELL’S RETRACTED REPORT THAT BYPASSED MSNBC’S VERIFICATION PROCESS

O’Donnell repeatedly attempted to cushion his report by saying “if true,” which Wemple wrote could stick to him for the duration of his broadcasting career.

“He invoked it over and over on his Tuesday night program in reference to Donald Trump’s dealings with Deutsche Bank,” Wemple wrote. “O’Donnell’s actions are clearly reckless in layman’s terms.”

Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple isn’t sure if MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell is “fit” to host a cable news program.

The potentially career-defining moment occurred on Tuesday night when O’Donnell and fellow ultra-liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow were discussing how Trump was “able to obtain loans when no one else would loan him any money” when he tossed out the unverified speculation.

WHITE HOUSE SLAMS MSNBC FOR UNVERIFIED REPORT, SAYS LEFT-WING OUTLETS HAVE ‘WEAPONIZED’ THE MEDIA

“I may have some information, in this next hour, which would add a great deal to their understanding of that, if true, and I’ll be discussing it here,” O’Donnell said. “I stress ‘if true,’ because this is a single source who has told me that Deutsche Bank obtained tax returns… this single source close to Deutsche Bank has told me that Donald Trump’s loan documents there show that he has cosigners. That’s how he was able to obtain those loans and that the cosigners are Russian oligarchs.”

Wemple wrote that with “repeated ‘if true’ caveats, O’Donnell was mocking the core idea of journalism,” which the media critic explains as “the verification of stray tips and rumors.”

O’Donnell has been ridiculed by media watchdogs on both sides of the political aisle and the MSNBC host admitted airing information that “wasn’t ready for reporting,” breaking NBC News regulations in the process.

NBC News has not responded to multiple requests for comment. O’Donnell hosted his program as scheduled on Thursday night despite backlash.

“The catastrophe appears to flow from one man’s conclusion that having Russian oligarchs on Trump loan documents is a story that’s too good to check,” Wemple wrote. “Is such a fellow fit to host an MSNBC program?”

Tomi Lahren on Pete Davidson’s viral rant ripping into student audience: ‘He makes a good point’

Westlake Legal Group tomi-lahren-pete-davidson-FOX-NBC Tomi Lahren on Pete Davidson's viral rant ripping into student audience: 'He makes a good point' Yael Halon fox-news/opinion fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/fox-nation fox-news/entertainment/saturday-night-live fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox news fnc/media fnc article 75fc141f-41c7-5891-9eed-30d73c1a51bf

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren came to the defense of SNL star Pete Davidson Friday after a now-viral rant showed him ripping into college students during a recent show at the University of Central Florida (UCF).

Lahren explained that while she usually disagrees with much of what Davidson stands for, “he made a good point” rebuking the students for having their cellphones out, despite the “clear no cellphone rule.”

“Listen, I don’t approve of his word choices,” said Lahren, “and he may have overreacted a little bit — but he makes a good point and a point those in my generation need to hear, whether it sounds nice or not,” she said in her Fox Nation daily commentary “First Thoughts.”

During his performance at UCF’s Pegasus Palooza Comedy Knight, the Saturday Night Live comedian halted his stand-up routine and went off on a profanity-filled rant against millennials, berating students who were filming the show.

“If you film everything but not enjoy the show for (expletive) an hour, then like, I don’t gotta be here for that,” he said. “You can just give them their money back because I don’t give a (expletive).”

PETE DAVIDSON ABRUPTLY CANCELS SOLD-OUT GIG, ONE DAY BEFORE HE WAS SCHEDULED TO PERFORM

Davidson continued, throwing shade at the school that was hosting him.

“So like, whenever somebody else comes to your (expletive) town and wants to perform and is exhausted and flies all the way to the middle of (expletive) nowhere to do jokes for you, you little privileged (expletives), don’t (expletive) ruin the show for people who actually want to be here,” he said.

Some in the audience began to laugh and broke out into applause — but Davidson had more to say on the matter.

“Don’t clap, that’s the problem. That’s what’s (expletive) up about our generation,” he said. “That’s why we’re embarrassing.”

He continued on his rant, using insulting and derogatory terms, but eventually calmed down.

“Where’s the next generation? … Don’t you want your parents to be proud of you? … Now we’ll continue. I just wanted to scare you. Just grow up.”

Lahren said Davidson is “far from her favorite person,” but she agreed with his overall message, and blamed the “coddling” of her generation for the students’ inability to properly abide by the rules.

“The sign said no cell phones but these students ignored it because quite frankly, they feel they are entitled to do whatever the heck they want with no consequences. How did we get here? Well, simple. My generation has been coddled with safe spaces, trigger warnings, and bubble wrap for most of our lives,” said Lahren.

PETE DAVIDSON SLAMS ‘CANCEL CULTURE’ IN NEW STAND-UP SET, CITES HARVEY WEINSTEIN, R. KELLY, MICHAEL JACKSON

“My generation has been told red pens are bad for self-esteem, Everyone deserves a trophy, regardless of merit, Conservative speakers coming to campus warrant tantrums and even riots And cry-ins and safe spaces are necessary to remedy election upsets,” she continued.

Lahren urged for millenials and Gen Z’ers to “grow up” and said Davidson “hit the nail on the head.”

“It’s embarrassing. We, as a generation, are embarrassing,” she said. “Why does it seem like most millennials and Gen Z’ers would rather post selfies than earn a living?” the Fox Nation host asked, urging students to “change the narrative.”

“If this isn’t who we are and we are misrepresented as a generation, let’s wake up and change the narrative. Yes, I said ‘wake up’ not ‘get woke.’ Y’all are plenty ‘woke’ you need to open your eyes to more than victimhood, entitlement and complaining. I am a millennial and I know we are better than this.”

Miranda Devine slams Washington Post columnist: ‘if you’re conservative, you’re automatically a racist’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-08-30-at-10.25.53-AM Miranda Devine slams Washington Post columnist: 'if you're conservative, you're automatically a racist' Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/newsedge/politics fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc f094e883-a159-50d5-9237-9232bec13a6a article

New York Post columnist Miranda Devine Friday blasted a columnist for The Washington Post, Marissa Brostoff, for accusing conservative J.D. Vance of being a “closet white supremacist” and linking the pro-life movement to white nationalism.

“If you’re a conservative, you’re automatically a racist,”  Devine told “Fox & Friends.”

“[The left is] trying to demonize the pro-life movement and they are also trying to smear the entire conservative movement and, of course, any supporter of Donald Trump.”

MIRANDA DEVINE: ‘HILLBILLY ELEGY’ AUTHOR J.D. VANCE LATEST CONSERVATIVE TO BE SMEARED BY LEFTIST LIES

Brostoff’s column, titled “How White Nationalists Aligned Themselves With The Anti-Abortion Movement”, argued pro-life conservatives oppose abortion because they fear it will accelerate the demographic “replacement” of white people by nonwhite immigrants, according to Devine.

Devine went on to say that “it makes no sense because black babies are aborted at five times the rate of white babies so how on Earth it could be a white nationalist thing to be against abortion.”

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

“The whole point about being against abortion is that you say every single life is equal and sacred. It’s not that white lives are better. I don’t know where this comes from, it’s insane,” she added.

Devine wrote a rebuttal op-ed aimed at Brostoff for using J.D. Vance as an example of white supremacist ideas being mainstream conservative thought.

Devine went on to explain to Fox & Friends why Vance was targeted in Brostoff’s column,

“He was immediately suspect to them because he wrote sympathetically about those parts of the country where Donald Trump was popular and where he won the election because he’s from there,” she said.

“He called himself a hillbilly, yet he emerged from a very difficult background, went to Yale. Now he’s writing about those people that he came from and why Donald Trump is resonating with them.”

Darth Vader’s birthplace found? Evidence of dangerous volcano, lava world spotted in deep space

Researchers believe they have discovered what they describe as “the first volcanically active exomoon,” a celestial body eerily reminiscent of the tiny, fiery “Star Wars” planet, Mustafar, where Anakin Skywalker turned into Darth Vader.

Potentially located in the WASP-49b exoplanet system, approximately 550 light-years away from Earth, the hypothetical exomoon has been compared to 55 Cancri-e, a Super-Earth that has a surface temperature greater than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. It has also been compared to Jupiter’s moon, Io, the most volcanically active celestial body in the solar system.

“It would be a dangerous volcanic world with a molten surface of lava, a lunar version of close-in Super Earths like 55 Cancri-e” said University of Bern researcher and the study’s lead author, Apurva Oza, in a statement.

EXOMOONS COULD BE HOME TO EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE, RESEARCHER SAYS

The study, which will be published in The Astrophysical Journal and is available online here, notes that “extrasolar satellites are generally too small to be detected by nominal searches.”

However, it adds that WASP-49b’s atmosphere contains the presence of sodium at an exceptionally high altitude, leading Oza to believe it’s emanating from somewhere other than the exoplanet.

“The neutral sodium gas is so far away from the planet that it is unlikely to be emitted solely by a planetary wind,” the researcher said.

He added the conditions could be “a place where Jedis go to die, perilously familiar to Anakin Skywalker.”

In “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” Skywalker fights his mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, in a gruesome battle. The fight leaves him horribly disfigured and near death, but Skywalker is rescued and ultimately becomes the iconic Darth Vader.

Although the researchers have not confirmed the presence of the exomoon and concede the sodium gas could be caused by a ring of ionized gas surrounding the exoplanet, they’re still hopeful.

STRANGE GIANT PLANET ‘UNLIKE ANY OTHER’ DISCOVERED

“While the current wave of research is going towards habitability and biosignatures, our signature is a signature of destruction“, Oza said. “A few of these worlds could be destroyed in a few billion years due to the extreme mass loss. The exciting part is that we can monitor these destructive processes in real time, like fireworks.”

Scientists have yet to concretely say that exomoons exist, but in October 2018, NASA’s Kepler and Hubble space telescopes spotted evidence of a Neptune-size satellite orbiting exoplanet Kepler-1625b.

In June, an astrophysicist at the U.K.’s University of Lincoln posited that exomoons could contain liquid water and, therefore, support life.

So far, more than 4,000 exoplanets have been discovered, but the potential list of exomoons is far smaller. According to Space.com, there could be as many as 100 exoplanets that have exomoons. By comparison, there are more than 150 moons for just the eight planets in the solar system, according to data compiled by NASA.

As Hurricane Dorian approaches Florida, Instagram hashtag being used to promote products

With Hurricane Dorian looming, have you checked your survival kit to make sure it has enough CBD oils, IV water and honey to sustain you and your dog?

As Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was urging residents Friday to gear up for a potential Category 4 life-threatening storm, businesses across the Sunshine State are using the #HurricaneDorian hashtag on Instagram as a way to hawk everything from liquid IV’s to children’s dolls.

“Worried about pet anxiety with the #HurricaneDorian on the way? #CBD is a great option to help your #furbabies keep calm,” reads one post.

“Here’s a way to avoid the madness over bottled water during Hurricane prep, get a Hydration IV,” says another.

The posts are appearing amongst warnings about the coming storm, memes and, of course, pictures of dogs with forlorn looks on their faces.

Two of the posts are from businesses based in Florida that sell honey.

“Due to the healing abilities and nutritional value of raw honey it’s a must have in our hurricane kit!” one says.

Another post by a business that sells children’s toys shows a doll with a glum look on its face in front of a screen indicating Dorian’s current location – and sustained wind speeds of 110 mph.

DeSantis says Florida residents looking for specific information regarding ongoing preparations for the storm in their communities should visit floridadisaster.org/info.

Miami Dolphins players vow ‘revolt’ if top offensive lineman gets traded: report

Westlake Legal Group 050716-fsf-nfl-miami-dolphins-tunsi-34c5d9e5ceb84510VgnVCM100000d7c1a8c0____ Miami Dolphins players vow 'revolt' if top offensive lineman gets traded: report Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl/miami-dolphins fox-news/sports/nfl/houston-texans fox-news/sports/nfl fox news fnc/sports fnc article 39016f5a-ce99-57f4-92b0-9898baebd933

Some Miami Dolphins players are reportedly considering a “revolt” should the team part with offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil, who’s been the subject of trade rumors.

Tunsil has been rumored to be the centerpiece of a trade to the Houston Texans for edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney but there could be considerable backlash from some members of the team should the trade occur, a “well-placed source” told the Miami Herald on Thursday.

EX-NFL STAR LARRY JOHNSON SOUNDS OFF ON SUPPOSED ‘EFFEMINATE AGENDA’ IN TWO SPORTS LEAGUES

“The backlash would be amazing,” the source told the newspaper.

It’s unclear what the supposed “revolt” would entail.

Tunsil, 25, has been one of the better offensive linemen on the Dolphins since the team selected him with the No. 13 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. The offensive tackle provides vital protection for Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and any trade would be a huge blow to the offensive line.

DOLPHINS MAKE FITZPATRICK WEEK 1 STARTER AS PRESEASON ENDS

The team also has Tunsil under contract for two more seasons, according to the Miami Herald.

Trade talks between Miami and Houston have heated up over the last week. The Texans appear adamant about trading Clowney, who has 29 sacks over the last five seasons and who has yet to sign a contract tender with the Texans. Clowney can’t get traded until he signs the tender.

The Dolphins have had a tumultuous offseason.

Wide receiver Kenny Stills stirred controversy when he lashed out at team owner Stephen Ross’ decision to host a fundraiser for President Trump while being on the NFL Players’ Coalition.

Stills also went public with his disagreement over the NFL partnering with Jay-Z on a social justice initiative and the Super Bowl halftime show, which led to new head coach Brian Flores playing Jay-Z in the locker room to apparently “challenge” his player.

Illinois boy, 7, scraps Disney trip to meet bone marrow donor

It’s not hard to imagine what many 7-year-olds would choose when given the option of a trip to Disney or a meeting with a stranger, but Gabriel Smith isn’t your average kid.

Six years ago, Gabriel was saved when a bone marrow donor in Germany matched with him, which is why when he was approached by Make-A-Wish he chose to have that man, Dennis Gutt, flown to Chicago so he could thank him in person instead of opting for a trip to “The Happiest Place on Earth.”

“If the transplant hadn’t happened, if we hadn’t found a match through the registry, he wouldn’t be alive,” Lauren Smith, the boy’s mother, told ABC News.

Gabriel had been receiving treatment at St. Louis Children’s Hospital since shortly after his birth, and when they learned he would need a bone marrow transplant just after his first birthday, they were ecstatic to hear that a then-19-year-old in Germany was a match.

Two years ago, the family learned the name of Gabriel’s donor through the Be the Match registry, and they connected with Gutt on Facebook, the news outlet reported.

Gutt arrived in the U.S. last week to meet Gabriel and his family, and the group stopped by the Make-A-Wish office to meet the people behind the life-changing trip.

“It’s like an invisible rope connected you to a family from [the] other side of the world,” Gutt told ABC News. “I felt since the first moment like a part of their family. We bonded immediately and I hope forever too. That’s my wish.”

Andrew Yang’s bold prediction about dwindling NBA star receives support

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang gained immense support Thursday when he made a prediction involving the Brooklyn Nets and one dwindling NBA star.

Yang predicted the Nets would sign free-agent forward Carmelo Anthony to a deal in the wake of one of their players getting suspended for the first 25 games of the season.

“I bet the Nets sign Carmelo now that Wilson Chandler got suspended,” Yang tweeted.

Chandler received the suspension for testing positive for Ipamorelin – a drug that increases the release of growth hormone. The league said his suspension will start at the beginning of the season.

Brooklyn signed Chandler to play some valuable minutes for the team while prized free-agent signing Kevin Durant rehabs from a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in the NBA playoffs.

Anthony has not played a game in the NBA since Nov. 8 with the Houston Rockets. He was later traded to and waived by the Chicago Bulls.

NETS’ CHANDLER SUSPENDED 25 GAMES FOR POSITIVE DRUG TEST

Yang’s tweet garnered some attention from the basketball community.

While on the campaign trail, the 2020 candidate has dived into sports waters.

Earlier this month, Yang released a statement on his campaign website calling for the NCAA to pay student-athletes, saying “paying athletes in certain sports would lead to more resources going to the players who are both the main attraction and putting their bodies on the line each game.”

He also tweeted congratulations to former New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin for continuing his basketball career in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Yang will be a part of the Sept. 12 Democratic debates set to take place in Houston.
