Sanders has tense encounter with journalist while refusing to criticize Warren

Westlake Legal Group Elizabeth-Warren-sanders Sanders has tense encounter with journalist while refusing to criticize Warren Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 09017277-2676-50b7-afff-f45ea648170f

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had a tense exchange with a journalist Wednesday after he was pressed to distinguish himself from his presidential opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

“You and Senator Elizabeth Warren have a lot of similar positions on issues,” Vice DC correspondent Elizabeth Landers began. “Why should someone vote for you over her?”

“Well, that’s a decision that someone’s going to have to make,” Sanders responded. “I stand with the working class throughout my life. I’ve taken on Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry.”

“She’s done a lot of that too,” Landers said.

“Well, that’s fine,” Sanders continued. “Elizabeth happens to be a friend of mine. I’ve known Elizabeth for over 20 years.”

Landers then press Sanders on when he was going to have to “stand up” and say his plans were “better” than Warren’s, which he refrained to answer.

“So you won’t directly criticize her policies?” Landers asked.

“Elizabeth, that’s not what I do,” the Vermont senator replied. “There will be a time and a place obviously that will-“

“When is that?”

“That’s a media question,” Sanders said. “What people want to know is what I stand for and people can make that decision.”

Sanders and Warrens have been vying for the progressive vote in the Democratic primary. The latest Fox News poll earlier this month had Warren ten points ahead of Sanders among likely voters. However, Real Clear Politics shows both senators are neck and neck.

Coast Guard nets 3 arrests, 3,000 pounds of cocaine in anti-smuggling operation in Pacific

Newly released video shows U.S. Coast Guard personnel busting up an alleged drug-smuggling operation in international waters of the Pacific Ocean last month.

The operation resulted in the seizure of an estimated 3,000 pounds of cocaine and the arrests of three suspects, according to the U.S. Department of Defense.

The footage was recorded July 16 as a team aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Robert Ward pursued the suspects’ vessel.

COAST GUARD HAULS IN $350M WORTH OF COCAINE FROM MULTIPLE DRUG BUSTS IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS

As the Coast Guard crew pulls up alongside the boat, crew members draw guns on the suspects and order them to put their hands up, the video shows.

On Aug. 22, the same Coast Guard crew recovered bales of cocaine that were found drifting in international waters. The amount was unclear, according to the Defense Department.

The Coast Guard crew represented District 11, which covers California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah.

Previously, the Coast Guard announced the seizure of some $350 million in cocaine, representing some 26,000 pounds of the drug, following a weeks-long operation.

Trump slams Washington Post over report on pardons

Westlake Legal Group AP19207825601598 Trump slams Washington Post over report on pardons fox-news/topic/border-wall fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace b94c87a2-06d1-50a2-903e-1744ecc57b0a article

President Trump on Wednesday dismissed a report in The Washington Post that claimed he promised aides he would pardon them should they need to break the law in order to fast-track construction of the border wall before the 2020 Election Day.

“Another totally Fake story in the Amazon Washington Post (lobbyist) which states that if my Aides broke the law to build the Wall (which is going up rapidly), I would give them a Pardon,” Trump said on Twitter Wednesday. “This was made up by the Washington Post only in order to demean and disparage – FAKE NEWS!”

DHS BARS DEM STAFFERS FROM VISITING BORDER FACILITIES AFTER ‘RUDE’ AND ‘DISRUPTIVE’ BEHAVIOR

Trump later tweeted that The Washington Post and CNN falsely reported that he didn’t think a wall along the southern border was important to stop illegal immigrants from entering the country.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Trump encouraged aides during weekly meetings to extradite billions of dollars’ worth of construction contracts, aggressively seize private land and disregard environmental rules to complete 500 miles worth of border wall first promised to voters in 2016.

Citing anonymous current and former White House officials, the Post reported Trump said he would pardon aides should they need to break the law in order to complete the project. One unnamed official said the president was joking when he suggested pardons.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives—which had been investigating Trump for obstruction of justice— is to decide whether or not to launch impeachment hearings when it reconvenes from summer recess next month.

Two Democratic presidential candidates– Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Beto O’Rourke—both tweeted a link to The Washington Post story Wednesday, writing that the report proved a need to impeach Trump given the president viewed himself as above the law.

“Donald Trump is dangling pardons for subordinates who would break the law to build his vanity project on the southern border,” Harris said on Twitter. “Let’s be honest here: Trump is a lawless president.”

O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman and former mayor of the border town of El Paso, echoed Harris’ sentiment and noted the findings in the report showed the consequences of failing to impeach Trump.

“We can’t become numb to these stories: Trump has promised to pardon government workers who break the law to build a wall we don’t need,” O-Rourke wrote. “This is the consequence of failing to impeach him: He believes he’s above the law—and he’ll keep acting like it, until we hold him accountable.”

Also Wednesday, Trump tweeted drone video of a stretch of barriers along the southern border, writing that the wall is “going up very fast” despite “total obstruction” by Democrats in Congress.

The Post reported that only 60 miles of barrier to replace current fencing along the southern border has been built during the first 2.5 years of Trump’s first term—which is only about one-tenth of the 500 miles of border wall first promised to voters.  The White House requested $3.6 billion in Pentagon funds to be used in barrier projects after Congress refused to allocate $5 billion for the job, according to the Post.

New York home security camera catches a ‘ghost’ with ‘pet’

A New York couple was a little spooked when they looked at a security camera in their living room late one night to find what they said looked like a ghost and a ghost dog, according to reports Wednesday.

Joey Nolan and his wife were checking on their sick cat via the camera just before 1 a.m. on Aug. 8. They claim they saw what appeared to be the faint outline of a person and a small animal, the New York Post reported.

KRISTEN STEWART SAYS SHE SPEAKS TO GHOSTS, IS VERY ‘SENSITIVE’ TO THEIR ENERGY

The couple shared the footage with their friends and a clip uploaded to YouTube and Reddit went viral.

Some viewers said the apparition looks like a boy and a dog or a boy, girl and a dog, but Nolan thinks it could be his dead grandfather.

The sighting happened on the 20th anniversary of his grandfather’s death, and while he’s not sure it’s him, he said seeing it gave him comfort, according to The Post.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump claims that China will pay his tariffs are nonsense – Americans will pay

Westlake Legal Group 854081161001_6078015448001_6078016776001-vs Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump claims that China will pay his tariffs are nonsense – Americans will pay fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world/trade fox-news/world fox-news/us/economy fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article Andrew Napolitano 34eafcc6-df4c-53b4-9aef-6f3f4a6a43c3

Late last week, President Trump issued a tweet in which he purported to order American businesses to cease doing work with their employees and contract partners in China.

Trump claimed he was exercising presidential powers pursuant to what he contended was the national emergency surrounding the trading relationship between the United States and China.

Since he did not declare a national emergency, he did not notify Congress and give it the opportunity to ratify or reject his executive orders. In fact, he didn’t even sign any executive orders on this.

GEN. KEANE: CHINA ‘CLEARLY OUR NO. 1 THREAT OUT THERE’

He merely ordered American businesses in a tweet to cease all commercial activities with anyone in China. It appears that no American company took him seriously and none complied. Can he legally do this?

Here is the backstory.

More from Opinion

Since his election as president, Trump has been fixated on the balance of trade between the U.S. and China. The balance of trade is the difference in total value annually between exports and imports.

Thus, since American businesses and consumers purchase more goods and services from Chinese businesses than American businesses sell to the Chinese, the U.S. has a deficit balance of trade with China and China has a surplus balance of trade with the U.S.

Stated differently, more goods made or assembled in China are attractive to American consumers and investors than goods produced here are attractive to Chinese investors and consumers. As well, investors from China are quite willing to finance goods made and assembled there to keep their cost low and their attractiveness to American consumers high.

All of this has come about by the free choices of American investors and consumers. Is this trade imbalance detrimental to the American economy? In a word: NoTariffs are paid by the end-user – in this case, American consumers and investors whenever we buy a product that originated wholly or in part in China.

But Trump has been willing to engage in the type of central economic planning that he once condemned by making it more costly for Chinese businesses to sell goods to their American counterparts and American consumers. And he has done so by imposing tariffs upon American purchasers.

A tariff is a sales tax that, because it has not been enacted by Congress, as the Constitution requires of all federal taxes, is unconstitutional.

Trump has argued that tariffs on Chinese goods sold in America have forced the Chinese government to pay the equivalent of hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. Treasury.

This is nonsense. Tariffs are paid by the end-user – in this case, American consumers and investors whenever we buy a product that originated wholly or in part in China.

And, of course, China has retaliated against American businesses by imposing its own tariffs on American products, most notably agricultural goods produced by Midwestern farmers. Many of those farmers have lost their Chinese buyers for certain 2019 growing seasons.

Trump claims that what he wants are more favorable trading terms between American and Chinese businesses, and his tariffs and other “orders” are simply a means of getting there.

The president does have a real argument that Chinese domestic subsidies and currency manipulation have put Chinese producers at an artificially unfair advantage over their American competitors.

So what? Why shouldn’t American consumers be able to take advantage of that? His tariffs are a remedy worse than the disease; the little guy gets hurt the most, often without recourse.

Now, back to Trump’s order for American businesses to cease doing business in China. The president claims the authority to issue such an order comes from emergency powers granted by law to President Jimmy Carter in 1977, which he used to address the truly dangerous Iran hostage crisis by using economic rather than military tools.

Carter wanted to prohibit American businesses from selling certain goods to businesses in Iran to coerce the government into releasing the American hostages.

But that law – the International Emergency Economic Powers Act – requires the existence of a true emergency in the U.S. caused by a foreign power. The courts have defined “emergency” as the sudden, imminent onset of harm to the lives or property of Americans that cannot be addressed by the exercise of ordinary government means.

That is hardly the case here. Here, we have a sophomoric boasting contest between Trump and President Xi Jinping as to which country has a stronger economy, and they both think they can win that contest by using government to interfere with otherwise free economic choices.

Here, we have a sophomoric boasting contest between Trump and President Xi Jinping as to which country has a stronger economy, and they both think they can win that contest by using government to interfere with otherwise free economic choices. 

Trump himself has demonstrated the ability to shake up domestic and foreign markets using ordinary government means. Now he claims he has the right to exercise emergency powers to address a non-emergency that he caused.

The imbalance of trade is not only a nonemergency; it is also a nonissue to anyone who understands Economics 101. But even to those who don’t, they will suffer at Trump’s hands when the products they buy – smartphones, household electronics, clothing, toys – suddenly cost 30 percent more than two years ago.

Where does this leave us?

We are witness again to a president who chooses to take the law into his own hands and who somehow thinks that central economic planning will enhance prosperity in America. He should know better.

The lessons learned from Eastern European government central planning in the last century demonstrate that economic planning only benefits the planners.

Freedom to choose products and investments produces more prosperity than government planning.

Economic freedoms – to contract, to invest, to buy and to sell – are guaranteed by the Constitution and once were protected from interference by the government.

But constitutional guarantees are only as reliable as is the fidelity to upholding them of those in whose hands we have entrusted the Constitution for safekeeping.

Are our constitutional guarantees safe in Trump’s hands?

Laura Ingraham: Bernie Sanders has ‘soft spot’ for ‘Chinese thugs’

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham went after Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Wednesday after he praised China, saying the country had taken action against extreme poverty.

“Yes, they’ve done a lot of things for their people, all right, Bernie, including the ongoing brutal violation of basic human rights,” Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.”

She continued blasting China’s government in Beijing for crushing dissent, mistreating its Uyghur Muslim population and other issues.

SANDER-NISTA? ARCHIVES SHOW BERNIE’S PAST PRAISE OF SOCIALIST REVOLUTIONARIES

On Tuesday, Sanders — the self-described democratic socialist U.S. senator from Vermont — had credited China while speaking to The Hill.

“What we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is — if I’m not mistaken — they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization,” Sanders said. “So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

Ingraham ripped Sanders for his China comments and the tenets of socialism.

“It really shouldn’t be all that surprising I guess that Bernie has a soft spot for the Chinese thugs. Socialism ultimately leads to more power for the state. And less power for you and your family,” Ingraham said.

The Fox News host advised Republicans to warn young voters about socialism and how it would lead to the loss of freedom.

“Republicans though must remind young voters that there’s no such thing as free health care, free college tuition, free universal pre-K or income equality,” Ingraham warned.

“It’s all a scam,” she added. “All it does is exist to grow the government and your dependence on it.”

Mark Levin: ‘Unpatriotic’ news media hates Trump, treats ‘half of America’ contemptuously

Westlake Legal Group Levin-Hanitty_FOX Mark Levin: 'Unpatriotic' news media hates Trump, treats 'half of America' contemptuously fox-news/us/education/patriotism fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/michael-avenatti fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 3d141339-997f-5c86-9ce9-87af875d44f2

Many Americans have tuned-out the mainstream media — in part because many news outlets show contempt for President Trump and his supporters, and because of the news outlets’ often egregious choice in guests, according to Mark Levin.

“The vast majority of America has never heard of Jim Acosta or Brian Stelter or any of these other people — they don’t know who they are — but when they watch them, they don’t like them,” Levin claimed Wednesday on “Hannity.”

“They’ve turned off half of America. They treat half of America with utter contempt. … The days of Huntley-Brinkley and Howard K. Smith are long over. They bring in a porn actress hundreds of times, [Michael Avenatti] hundreds of times, and they bring on a neo-Nazi … to try to attack the president.

MARK LEVIN: LAWRENCE O’DONNELL’S TRUMP-RUSSIAN OLIGARCH CLAIM PROVES WHY MEDIA ISN’T TRUSTED

“And what do we hear, day in and day out, from our unpatriotic media? That the president is Hitler — Do they know who Hitler is? — That the president is Stalin, that he’s Mussolini.”

Levin later blasted one tactic the press has used against Trump: having a certified psychiatrist question the president’s sanity.

More from Media

He said some media outlets invited Yale University professor Dr. Bandy Lee on air to discuss Trump’s mental state, noting Lee authored a book called, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.”

“Guess what?” Levin said. “They pulled that same one in 1964 against Barry Goldwater.”

Levin held up a magazine headline reading that more than 1,000 psychiatrists claimed that Goldwater — a Republican U.S. senator from Arizona who was GOP’s presidential nominee in 1964 — was, “psychologically unfit to be president.”

“The American Psychiatric Association told them to cut it out,” he said.

The “Life, Liberty & Levin” host added Trump has been friendlier to the press than many past presidents, including those who “shut down newspapers.” Levin mentioned how former President John Adams signed the 1798 Alien and Sedition Acts, which prohibited writing, printing, uttering or publishing, “any false, scandalous and malicious writing.”

“Unlike FDR and JFK and LBJ, Trump hasn’t unleashed the IRS against a single news publisher,” Levin said. “They did.”

Reward up to $20G offered as search continues for husband-wife murder suspects who ‘overpowered’ Utah officers

Authorities offered up to $20,000 Wednesday for information leading to the capture of an “armed and dangerous” married couple wanted for murder in Arizona who police say overpowered guards, escaped a transport vehicle bringing them across the country in Utah and evaded a two-day manhunt.

The U.S. Marshals Service has been poring through dozens of tips since Blane Barksdale, 56, and Susan Barksdale, 59, were last seen in Blanding, Utah, on Monday. The agency hopes to get more leads by offering the reward money — $10,000 per fugitive.

“We’re getting tips left and right and looking into the validity of each one,” U.S. Deputy Marshal Michael Adams told the Associated Press.

Other agencies, including the FBI, are involved in the sweeping manhunt for the Barksdales. Police say the couple somehow “overpowered two security officers” while being transported from Henrietta, N.Y., to Pima County, Ariz., where they are wanted for the murder of Frank Bligh.

They were last seen driving a red GMC Sierra pickup truck with damage to the front passenger door and rear bumper, police said. Authorities believe the husband and wife already left Utah and may be driving through Arizona.

The suspects were arrested May 24 in upstate New York and charged with first-degree murder, burglary, arson and auto theft in connection with the disappearance of Bligh, 72, who was reported missing following the April 16 fire and explosion at his Tucson home. Bligh’s car was found abandoned the day after the fire. While his body has not been found, investigators say evidence in the car indicated he was likely dead. The Barksdales were later identified as suspects.

Former FBI Director James Comey may be heading for trouble when details of an “imminent” report from the Justice Department’s inspector general become available, Fox News’ Sean Hannity said Wednesday.

“It’s not looking good for … Mr. Super Patriot, a guy that knows better than us,” Hannity said on his television program. “We are told that the report will strongly rebuke the disgraced former FBI director, document his utter lack of candor. That means lying,” Hannity said.

“And we’re also being told that the report … has referred Comey for federal prosecution for stealing government documents, leaking confidential government memos that detailed conversations with the president a clear violation of the Espionage Act.”

News of the report’s impending release comes from a report by the Washington Examiner’s Byron York.

According to York, the Comey report is separate from a larger report on how the Justice Department handled the Trump-Russia investigation but it wasn’t clear why a separate Comey report was deemed necessary.

The Fox News host warned that Comey should be worried about facing the repurcussions for his alleged actions.

“Without a doubt Comey should be sweating a lot tonight about what might be in those reports. This report is expected to be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Jim Comey,” Hannity said.

Lindsey Graham slams CNN for hiring Andrew McCabe, ‘alleged architect’ of anti-Trump conspiracy

During an appearance on “Hannity” on Wednesday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticized CNN for hiring fired former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe as a political commentator.

“CNN has just hired the alleged architect of a criminal conspiracy against the Trump campaign,” Graham said. “So how much time and attention do you think they’re going to get the Horowitz report when they hired the guy that Horowitz is investigating?”

The South Carolina Republican was referring to Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, who is preparing a report on how the Justice Department initiated its investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Earlier this week, federal prosecutors appeared to be close to a decision on whether to charge McCabe over the circumstances that led to his firing from the bureau last year.

Graham reiterated that CNN’s coverage of the upcoming Horowitz report would likely be influenced by the network’s decision to put McCabe on its payroll.

“How seriously do you think they’re going to take the Horowitz investigation, which is really a shame?” Graham asked.

The senator also commented on whether former President Barack Obama or his administration were briefed on the DOJ’s investigation into the Trump campaign.

“The bottom line is, who briefed President Obama, if anybody, about the counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign,” Graham said.

“And finally, why did they not tell the Trump campaign that they had concerns about people working for him tied to Russia? That’s what you’re supposed to do in a counterintelligence investigation.”
