Howard Kurtz: Many Americans tuning out Dems’ impeachment ‘theater’

Americans are getting sick of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry “theater,” “MediaBuzz” host Howard Kurtz said Thursday.

In an interview on Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” Kurtz said that while there is absolutely no question that the Justice Department and Inspector General Michael Horowitz found “really serious stuff” during their investigation of the Russia probe, at the same time “this gets into sort of the parallel universe problem.”

“The other top headline out of that report is, despite what President Trump and Lindsey Graham and various allies have been saying, in Horowitz’s opinion — and he’s a widely-respected career prosecutor — political bias, such as it was, did not affect the decision to launch the investigation of the Trump campaign and Russia,” he said.

DEMS PLOW AHEAD WITH IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES, IN HEATED ALL-DAY SESSION

“And so, it was not tainted and lots of people had predicted it would be otherwise. So there was stuff for both sides to cherrypick,” Kurtz told Kilmeade.

During his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Horowitz ripped the FBI for a ‘failure’ by the entire “chain of command” involved in the FBI’s initial Trump-Russia investigation and called out “basic and fundamental errors” at the bureau while stressing that his newly released report on the probe does not “vindicate” anyone.

Simultaneously, the House Judiciary Committee began day two of its impeachment markup and, after members debate and vote on proposed amendments to the articles, is expected to send them to the House floor for a debate and vote next week.

To convict the president and remove him from office, two-thirds of the Senate’s vote is required.

“It’s not a debate. It’s so repetitive at this point,” said Kurtz. “But, I mean, I can tell you now what [House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga.] is going to say. I can tell you what [House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.)] is going to say…they have recycled their own talking points.”

“I do this for a living and I’m fascinated by politics and media and impeachment is a rare thing — probably getting less rare in American politics — and I’m sick of it!” he exclaimed. “So, I can imagine that a lot of the public is simply tuned out of this particularly Beltway political theater.”

NASA picks site on asteroid Bennu where it will grab space rock sample

‘X’ marks the spot as NASA prepares for a historic asteroid mission.

NASA has selected the site on asteroid Bennu where its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will retrieve a sample of space rock.

Scientists identified four potential sites before picking a spot dubbed “Nightingale” that is located in Bennu’s northern hemisphere.

ASTEROID BENNU IS SHOOTING OUT ROCKS – AND NASA ISN’T SURE WHY

“After thoroughly evaluating all four candidate sites, we made our final decision based on which site has the greatest amount of fine-grained material and how easily the spacecraft can access that material while keeping the spacecraft safe,” said Dante Lauretta, OSIRIS-REx principal investigator at the University of Arizona in Tucson, in a statement. “Of the four candidates, site Nightingale best meets these criteria and, ultimately, best ensures mission success.”

A second site, dubbed Osprey, has been picked as a backup for sample collection.

OSIRIS-REx, which stands for Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer, launched in September 2016 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The spacecraft reached Bennu in December 2018.

OSIRIS-Rex will make its first “touch-and-go” sample collection attempt in August 2020. The probe will depart Bennu in 2021 and is scheduled to return to Earth in September 2023, according to NASA.

Discovery of mini weapons shows how ancient Native American children learned survival skills

The discovery of child-sized weapons at a site in Oregon is shedding new light on ancient Native American childhood.

A new analysis of items recovered from the Par-Tee archaeological site at the mouth of the Columbia River revealed fragments of a number of atlatls; throwing tools that increased the velocity of darts.

“Until the invention of the bow and arrow, these ancient dart-throwing weapons were the pinnacle of projectile weaponry and their proper use was key to survival,” the researchers said in a statement emailed to Fox News.

Because the atlatls found at Par-Tee varied greatly in size, archaeologists concluded that many of them were designed to be used by children.

PERFECTLY PRESERVED 1,000-YEAR-OLD HUNTER’S DART DISCOVERED IN MELTING ICE

“Basically, they scaled-down their atlatls so they were more easily usable is small hands,” said lead author Robert Losey, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alberta and lead author of a study on the weapons, in the statement. “This helped children master the use of these weapons.”

The weapons date back to between 100 and 800 A.D.

A paper on the research is published in the journal Antiquity.

NATIVE AMERICAN BURIAL SITE DISCOVERED DURING CONSTRUCTION WORK ON CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY

In recent years, experts have been unearthing new details of centuries-old Native American sites. An ancient Native American village in Louisiana, for example, is revealing its secrets thanks to new research.

In another project, archaeologists discovered incredible evidence of a huge Wichita Indian town in Kansas that was once home to 20,000 people. In a separate project, archaeologists discovered an “unprecedented” 7,000-year-old Native American burial site beneath the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

The ancient people of North America started building mounds as early as 4,500 B.C., experts say.

‘UNIQUE’ ANCIENT VILLAGE DISCOVERED ON FLORIDA’S GULF COAST USING DRONES AND LASERS

In 2016, researchers at the Cahokia Mounds near Collinsville, Ill., released a study that sheds new light on the ancient city’s power structure.

Booker says he won’t make stage at next week’s Democratic primary debate

Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker acknowledged Thursday he won’t qualify for next week’s Democratic nomination debate.

This would be the first primary debate that Booker, who made the stage at the first five debates, won’t make. But the senator from New Jersey, in an email to supporters on Thursday morning, still vowed “I’m in this race to win it, and our path forward is clear.”

While he’s reached the fundraising donor threshold for the Dec. 19 showdown, he remains far short of reaching the polling criteria by the end of Thursday’s qualifying deadline.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Seven candidates have qualified for the debate, which will be held in Los Angeles. They are former Vice President Joe Biden; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg; billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer; and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang. Sen. Kamala Harris of California had qualified for the debate, but she dropped out of the presidential race last week.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey headlines a rally in Concord, N.H. after filing for the state’s first-in-the-nation primary, on November 15, 2019

Booker emphasized in his email that “I may not be on the debate stage next Thursday, but thanks to the outpouring of support from this community over the past few weeks, we know there’s a path to victory and we no longer need the December debate stage to get there.”

And in a conference call with reporters, Booker campaign manager Addisu Demissie announced that Booker raised $3 million in three weeks following the last debate.

Booker, an energetic and often-affable candidate in the still-large field of Democratic White House hopefuls, has built up campaign staffs in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina — the first four states that hold contests in the primary and caucus presidential nominating calendar. And the senator’s spent plenty of time in those early voting states, connecting directly with voters through retail campaigning.

But Booker’s efforts have failed to resonate in national and early voting state polling, as he hovers in the low single digits.

Booker returns to New Hampshire on Friday, and Demissie said the candidate would spend time in Iowa and Nevada the rest of the month, including kicking off a multi-day bus tour in Iowa next Thursday, hours before the next debate takes place. And he announced that the campaign would be spending a half-million dollars to go up with TV commercials on Iowa airwaves.

Banking on late-deciding voters in the first caucus and first primary state, Demissie said, “I think Iowa voters and New Hampshire voters could deliver a surprise for us.”

“We’re in this thing, and we’ll fight to the last breath,” he vowed.

Sports Illustrated model Brooks Nader claps back at troll calling her ‘slut’ for sexy dress: ‘I love the hate’

Sports Illustrated model Brooks Nader is feeding off the haterade.

The 23-year-old Louisiana native was labeled a “slut” on social media this week in response to a see-through mini dress she wore to the Sportsperson of the Year awards on Monday.

The shimmery one-piece garnered hundreds of compliments from her 330,000 followers on Instagram. But days following the event, Nader found herself being attacked by commenters — some even claiming she was “asking to be raped” with her choice of outfit.

“She probably has used her body to get ahead … I call it as I see it, popular or not,” one user wrote underneath the rising model’s photo.

Another Instagram user asked: “Why do women like you wear see thru clothes, then get mad when men treat them like sluts? I guess you don’t.”

Nader responded to some of the criticism, telling one user, “I love the hate queen.”

“Whatever makes you feel better about yourself,” Nader continued.

SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT MODEL BROOKS NADER SAYS HER JOURNEY TO POSE FOR THE MAG ‘WAS A LONG ONE’

The model added that the dress made her feel “sexy” and found it “empowering.”

Nader’s modeling career took off when she won the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 Model Search this year. The magazine revealed that she would appear in the 2020 issue as its handpicked “rookie.”

But her rise to stardom wasn’t an overnight success. In May, Nader said landing a magazine photo shoot for a publication like Sports Illustrated was “a childhood dream.”

“I entered through Model Search, so I did the open call in Miami a year ago and now I’m here,” she said on a red carpet at the time. “So, the process and the journey for me is everything, because it was a long one.”

Her modeling career has taken Nader to tropical destinations like Bali, where she was photographed for her rookie shoot.

“I am here,” she told the camera in a behind-the-scenes Instagram video. “I can’t believe I am saying that!”

UK election voters bring dogs to polling stations

Thursday is election day in the United Kingdom — and constituents were making sure their furry four-legged friends get in on the action.

Using the trending Twitter hashtag “#dogsatpollingstations,” voters were showing up to the polls Thursday with their best pals posting photographic evidence of the experience on social media.

“Forget politics, this is the main reason to log onto Twitter today,” one Twitter user joked. “Delighted to announce there were dogs at my polling station this morning,” another tweeted.

UK’S JOHNSON, CORBYN CAST VOTES AS NATION DECIDES WHICH PARTY WILL RESOLVE BREXIT IMPASSE

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, of the Conservative Party, joined in on the fun when he brought his dog, a Jack Russell cross named Dilyn, to vote with him in London.

Sadiq Khan, the Labour Party’s mayor of London, also brought his pooch named Luna to the polls and posted a video online encouraging people to vote.

Some dogs went to the polls dressed up — in fun costumes from a bumblebee to Santa Claus — while other dogs’ owners announced who they were voting for online.

It was not immediately clear how many dogs actually got inside voting booths. According to the electoral commission’s rules, animals, “apart from assistance dogs, are not usually allowed inside polling stations so will need to be secured outside if you do decide to take them with you.”

It is hoped Thursday’s election, which is being held more than two years ahead of schedule, will break Britain’s political impasse over Brexit and determine its future relationship with the European Union. Additionally, all 650 seats in the House of Commons seats are up for grabs.

Florida teen dies of mono, dad says: ‘She was a very giving soul’

A Florida teen recently died of the “kissing disease,” or mononucleosis, her father said.

Ariana Rae Delfs, 17, of Fernandina Beach, died after falling ill about three weeks ago, according to local news station WJAX-TV. The teen’s father, Mark Delfs, said Ariana had coldlike symptoms and “seemed to always have a headache” in the weeks before her death.

“The persistent thing all the way through was the headache,” he said.

When Ariana failed to improve, her parents took her to a doctor who ran various tests, including one for mono, as per the news station. But a formal diagnosis was not made.

The teen’s symptoms continued to worsen. She was rushed to the hospital the morning after she spent one night “throwing up just constantly,” said Delfs. “We got very nervous.”

At the hospital, Ariana stood up at one point to use the restroom but told her parents she could not feel her legs.

“She felt like her legs were just giving out,” her father said.

Doctors suspected the 17-year-old was suffering a stroke and she was subsequently airlifted to a hospital in Jacksonville.

“Her words were very slurred at times. She was just talking gibberish, and the damage was already beginning at that point, which we just didn’t know,” said Delfs.

Sadly, Ariana received a formal diagnosis in the final days of her life: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which causes mononucleosis. The Mayo Clinic says the virus is the most common cause of mononucleosis.

The teen’s brain swelled to the point where it was not able to properly function, meaning Ariana suffered irreversible brain damage. At that point, “we just made the decision that it was time to let her go,” her father told the news station.

Following his daughter’s death, Delfs is urging other parents to take their children’s symptoms seriously and “be on top of it.”

“In our case, it wasn’t enough, but in somebody else’s case it may save their life,” he said.

Ariana, a scholar-athlete at Fernandina Beach High School, an artist, and self-taught musician, was “a very giving soul,” Delfs added. “She would give anybody anything.”

The teen’s funeral was on Wednesday. Her family has also set up a GoFundMe to raise money for “some of her passions, including music and arts programs for children, helping animals and making the world a better place,” the fundraiser reads.

NFL brothers to accomplish feat for first time since 1927

Three brothers who play in the NFL are set to do something that hasn’t been done in several decades Sunday when they all take the field.

Trey, Terrell and Tremaine Edmunds will become the first trio of brothers to appear in the same NFL game since Joe, Cobb and Bill Rooney all played for the Duluth Eskimos in 1927, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Trey and Terrell represent the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be taking on Tremaine’s Buffalo Bills.

“It is iconic. It’s spectacular. It’s amazing. It’s a blissful event,” Felicia Edmunds, their mother, told The Associated Press on Wednesday, adding that she will be rooting for both teams.

“This will be the first time for me that no matter what call the refs make, it will not be a wrong call in my book.”

Trey Edmunds has gotten some significant playing time with the Steelers this season. He’s rushed for 92 yards and 22 carries and has two rushing touchdowns this season. He was added to the Steelers’ practice squad in 2018 and was activated to the main roster last December.

The Steelers selected safety Terrell Edmunds with the No. 28 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s played in 29 games over his first two seasons. He has one interception and 161 combined tackles over those games.

Tremaine Edmunds also entered the league during the 2018 season. He was selected with the No. 16 pick by the Bills last year. He has played in 28 games for Buffalo and has recorded three interceptions and 218 combined tackles.

Tremaine and Terrell played together at Virginia Tech and made history by becoming the first brothers to be selected in the first round of the same draft. Trey also played at Virginia Tech but finished his collegiate career at Maryland.

Their father, Ferrell Edmunds, played tight end for the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks from 1988 to 1994. He was a two-time Pro Bowler and has 12 touchdowns in his career.

The three have a family dinner planned for Saturday and plan to do a jersey swap after the game. But that doesn’t mean their competitive spirit will be dampened come game time.

“I think the easiest way to put it I guess is bragging rights,” Tremaine Edmunds said. “Every time we step foot and do something, the only goal in our mind is to win. And nothing’s going to change on Sunday.”

Asked how long the loser or losers will hear about it, he answered: “Probably until we play again.”

There’s more on the line than just bragging rights. The Bills can clinch a playoff berth with a win while the Steelers have an opportunity to climb into the race for one of the AFC Wild Card spots.

‘They take the risk so we can come home to our families’: Lahren praises police after deadly Jersey City shootout

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren issued strong praise for law enforcement in a tribute to a New Jersey police detective who was among the six killed in Tuesday’s deadly Jersey City shooting.

“‘Officer Down,’ the two most terrifying words a law enforcement family will ever hear came true last night,” Lahren said Wednesday on Fox Nation’s “Final Thoughts.”

Joseph Seals, a 39-year-old police detective in Jersey City, N.J., was among the six people killed, including two suspects, during an hours-long gun battle that began at the Bay View Cemetery and made its way to the Jewish JC Kosher Supermarket.

Seals, a 15-year veteran of the force and father of five, was part of the department’s push to get guns off Jersey City’s streets. He was on duty and in plainclothes when he was fatally shot twice, in the head and upper arm. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

“Seals, like all of our law enforcement and first responders from coast to coast and everywhere in between, put his life on the line for his community and paid the ultimate sacrifice,” Lahren said.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop praised Seals’ legacy, saying that his performance “speaks for itself.”

“He [probably] is responsible for more guns being removed from the streets than any,” Fulop tweeted. “He was an officer that loved JC, was involved in the city, and one that everyone knew regardless of their precinct.”

Seal’s mother, Deborah Perruzza, was at home during the time of the shooting, she told Fox News. When she saw it was in her son’s district, she said she texted him to see if he had heard about the events unfolding.

“I texted him, ‘Joe, are you alive? You OK?’ I never heard back from him,” she said. “I called his wife but she hadn’t heard anything.”

“I kept thinking, it’s not even real,” Perruzza said. “I just kept watching the news and I would see his picture and I was just saying to myself, ‘Why him? Why him?'”

Offering condolences to Seal’s family, Lahren dedicated the Fox Nation episode to law enforcement across the country, and the sacrifices they make daily to protect their communities.

“Many in this country don’t appreciate the work our officers do every single day,” she said. “Every time they put on that badge and uniform they know there is a chance they won’t come home to their families at night. They do the job and take that risk so that we can come home to ours … they are selfless and they are heroes.”

“People often ask me why I support law enforcement to the extent I do and why I don’t rail on the so-called ‘bad apples’ in the police force,” Lahren continued. “Well, let me tell ya, for every ‘bad apple’ there are a thousand officers like Detective Seals willing to die for me, for you, and for their community — even those who proclaim to hate police. Anyone who is willing to do all that for such little in return sounds like a pretty exceptional human being to me.”

JERSEY CITY SHOOTER PUBLISHED ANTI SEMITIC POSTS ONLINE

“To the Jersey City Police Department, the community, and the family and friends lucky enough to have known Detective Seals,” she concluded, “I offer my sincerest condolences and prayers.”

Senior law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation have told various media outlets that the Jewish market was specifically targeted after investigators located anti-Semitic and anti-police postings published by one of the suspects online. Officials identified the bystanders killed at the market as Mindy Ferencz, 31; Miguel Douglas, 49; and Moshe Deutsch, 24.
