German Shepherd becomes internet star after sticking her face in security camera

When Joe Corsi got an alert from his home security camera, he had no idea his dog was about to become an internet sensation.

After checking the footage, he was relieved to find that no one was breaking into his home. Corsi was also incredibly amused by what he saw: his dog Sasha sticking her face directly into the camera.

According to Corsi, this is the first time something like this has happened. “She’s never set it off,” he told Fox News. “We had to move the camera because she gets curious. The way she set off the motion, she must have bumped the camera with her snout.”

“So when I got the alert I began to view the camera live to make sure no one was trying to break in or anything,” he continued. “What happened next, explains everything!”

Corsi posted the hilarious footage to a Facebook group named “German Shepherd Owners” with the caption, “When your security cameras pick up motion, you watch the live feed to see what’s going on.” Then what happens next is…”

Since posting it, the footage has been shared over 58 thousand times.

When asked how Sasha is handling her newfound fame, Corsi said, “Currently she is comfortably hanging out in the cold AC on a hot day in Rhode Island. She is loving all the attention she is getting on Instagram! She loves meeting new people!”

Progressive freshmen amass multi-million-dollar war chest amid feuds with party, Trump

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her fellow freshmen progressives have raked in more than $2 million in campaign contributions during the second quarter of 2019.

After months of intraparty criticism, the squad — Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. — each reported increases in fundraising totals. Ocasio-Cortez, perhaps the most well-known among them, led the pack with a whopping $1.4 million — up from the $826,361 she raised in the first quarter of 2019.

From Q1 to Q2 of 2019, Tlaib went from $305,873 to $528,932 in cash on hand — trailing Omar who had $949,749 in Q2 and $606,523 in Q1. Pressley brought in the lowest amount at just $145,304, a small increase from her Q1 total of $127,336.

Their numbers appeared to reflect a broader trend among Democratic newcomers who mostly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to Federal Election Committee filings due on Monday. Politico reported that only eight of the 43 freshman members posted fundraising figures lower than $300,000. Collectively, swing-seat freshman Democrats raised $24 million for Q2.

AOC’S ‘CONCENTRATION CAMPS’ CLAIM WAS JUST TIP OF THE ICEBERG — HERE ARE SOME OF HER MOST CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS

BIDEN: AOC AND ALLIES DON’T REPRESENT ‘THE MAJORITY,’ PELOSI ‘KNOWS WHAT SHE IS DOING’

The totals came as the “squad” entered what was likely their most high-profile feud with the president of the United States. Prior to that spat, Ocasio-Cortez, and others garnered near-constant press coverage as they pushed the envelope with progressive policy stances and knocked fellow party members for their apparent reluctance to embrace those positions.

On Monday, those four held a press conference in which they denounced President Trump for his tweets that appeared to call on at least some of them to return to foreign countries instead of criticizing the United States.

The two top fundraisers among the four — Omar and Ocasio-Cortez — have a flurry of criticism in recent weeks and months. All four seemed to divide the party in July as they voted against a GOP-backed border funding package that Pelosi pushed through the House.

“These radicalized, criminal agencies are destroying families and killing innocent children,” the four said of enforcement agencies before the vote.

ILHAN OMAR RAISES NEARLY $1M AFTER CONTROVERSIES, TOPS OTHER PROGRESSIVE DEMS LIKE AOC

After Pelosi dismissed them as just “four votes” among a sea of other Democrats, she reinvigorated tension between her and the squad. After Trump’s tweets, however, it appeared that those five were able to unite over opposition to the president.

Trump, meanwhile, seemed to hope that unity would tarnish leadership’s public image before the 2020 elections.

Despite Pelosi’s criticism, Ocasio-Cortez seemed to have a measurable impact on the 2020 presidential election. At least two of the party’s frontrunners — Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. — sought her endorsement and a slew of others referenced her “Green New Deal” in their proposals for tackling climate change.

Ford dealer’s retro package adds 1970s style to the F-150 pickup

Dealers across the country are getting national attention by offering custom appearance packages that transform 21st-century pickups with 1970s style, like Blake Greenfield Chevrolet’s Silverado “Cheyenne Big 10” and Sleepy Hollow Jeep’s “Honcho” Gladiator.

The latest making the rounds is Cincinnati’s Beechmont Ford’s Retro BFP F-150, which combines a 3.5-inch lift with polished 17-inch Mickey Thompson wheels wrapped in chunky 35-inch all-terrain tires, a Black Horse roll bar equipped with KC HiLites, and pearl white inserts to create a two-tone look.

Beechmont offers the package on virtually any F-150, and includes a Roush cat-back exhaust on models fitted with the 5.0-liter V8, but suggests starting with an XLT or XLT Chrome trim-level truck for the best throwback effect. The dealer told The Drive that pricing starts at $9,995. It also offers a host of performance upgrades that can be added, including a Roush supercharger kit good for 725 hp.

Floor fight erupts as Pelosi speaks ahead of vote to condemn Trump’s ‘racist’ comments

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6059445646001_6059444420001-vs Floor fight erupts as Pelosi speaks ahead of vote to condemn Trump's 'racist' comments Gregg Re fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox news fnc/politics fnc f080e4a4-e594-5e6a-92d8-cc0631e542b1 article

Escalating tensions on Capitol Hill erupted into a contentious floor fight in the House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke in favor of a proposed resolution condemning “racist” comments by President Trump — even as Republican leaders stood steadfast behind the president.

As Pelosi’s remarks turned personal, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins rose to challenge her and demand that her words be “taken down.” The extraordinary rebuke, the first of its kind by a member of Congress and a speaker of the House in decades, theoretically could result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the floor for the remainder of the day.

“There is no place anywhere for the president’s words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous — and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said. “It’s so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, ‘Of course. Of course.'”

CONWAY BLASTS DEMS’ ‘TIRED’ CLAIMS OF RACISM, SAYS SHE ‘TOTALLY DISAGREES’ WITH HUSBAND’S SCATHING OP-ED

Pelosi continued, her voice rising: “There’s no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong unified condemnation. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values, and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people. I urge a unanimous vote, and yield back the balance of my time.”

Collins then stood and asked if Pelosi wanted to “rephrase that comment.”

“I have cleared my remarks with the parliamentarian before I read them,” Pelosi said, before walking away to applause.

“Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down,” Collins said.

“The chair will remind all members, please, please, do not make personality-based comments,” the chair, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., said.

Collins then repeated his request to strike Pelosi’s comments. Determining whether Pelosi’s comments were out of order could require a vote of the House.

For several minutes after Collins’ objection, House members were huddled with the parliamentarian, Thomas J. Wickham Jr., to determine next steps. Wickham’s determination could be overruled by Cleaver or a vote of the full House.

AOC ‘SQUAD’ CALLS TRUMP ‘OCCUPANT’ OF WHITE HOUSE IN NO-HOLDS-BARRED PRESS CONFERENCE

Among other volumes, the House has used Thomas Jefferson’s “Manual of Parliamentary Practice” as a touchstone for House operations even today. Jefferson’s manual stated that House members cannot use language on the floor “which is personally offensive to the President.”

The House also relies on Cannon’s Book of Precedents, authored by the late Missouri Rep. Clarence Cannon, a Democrat. Cannon’s book says that “personal criticism, innuendo, ridicule and terms of opprobrium” are out of the order in the House.

Fox News has obtained a copy of the draft resolution being debated, which mentioned Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison. It also quoted Benjamin Franklin, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President John Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan.

The resolution, entitled “H. Res. 489 — Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress,” asserted that “President Donald Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

Fox News is told Republican support for the resolution is likely to be in the single digits. The scrap on the House floor over Pelosi’s comments could delay a vote late into the evening.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., didn’t have a direct answer when questioned about the text of the resolution earlier Tuesday.

A similar, dramatic episode occured in the House in the 1980s, when Newt Gingrich sparred with then-House Speaker Tip O’Neill, a Georgia Democrat. O’Neill remarked:  “My personal opinion is this:  You deliberately stood in that well before an empty House and challenged these people, and you challenged their Americanism, and it is the lowest thing I have ever seen in my thirty-two years in Congress.”

The parliamentarian determined at the time that the Speaker’s use of the word “lowest” amounted to inappropriate language, and O’Neill’s words were taken down.

House Republican leaders, meanwhile, said the outrage over Trump’s comments was “all about politics.”

GOP LEADERS DISMISS OUTRAGE OVER TRUMP TWEETS

“They talked more about impeachment than anything else,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said, referring to Monday’s fiery news conference with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. “We should get back to the business of America.”

The brouhaha began on Sunday after Trump tweeted that unnamed “Democrat Congresswomen” should go back and fix the “corrupt” and “crime infested places” from which they came and then “come back and show us how it’s done.”

Several Republicans have stood by the president. South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, for example, told “Fox & Friends” that the progressive representatives were a “bunch of communists,” and charged that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was plainly anti-Semitic.

Omar previously has been criticized by prominent members of both parties for making remarks widely deemed anti-Semitic. This past March, the Democrat-led House overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan resolution that indirectly condemned Omar’s repeated ‘anti-Semitic’ and ‘pernicious’ comments, including some in which she suggested Jewish politicians in the U.S. were bought and paid for.

“We all know that [AOC] and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border—the Border Patrol agents—concentration camp guards,” Graham said.

In advance of the planned House vote on the resolution Tuesday evening, Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., in a Capitol news conference, said Trump must “tone down the xenophobic and racist rhetoric that is consistently peddled out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” He called for Republicans to join Democrats in voting to condemn the president’s remarks in Tuesday’s vote.

“We want the strongest vote possible,” Jeffries said. “And, we’re hopeful that our colleagues on the other side of the aisle would put country ahead of party, would put decency ahead of Donald Trump. Let’s see what happens on the floor later on this evening.”

Some Republicans have condemned the president’s remarks, including Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who tweeted: “There is no excuse for the president’s spiteful comments –they were absolutely unacceptable and this needs to stop.”

But, McCarthy, while clarifying that he believes the Democrats in question “love this country,” said he was not on board with the resolution and will encourage other Republicans to vote against it.

Defense Secretary nominee Esper grilled over contractor ties in heated confirmation hearing

Westlake Legal Group esper Defense Secretary nominee Esper grilled over contractor ties in heated confirmation hearing Ronn Blitzer Lucas Tomlinson fox-news/politics/senate fox news fnc/politics fnc b863c4f0-3b83-5389-aa6c-8e09fa7a2bf4 article

Mark Esper, who took over the role of Acting Secretary of Defense after former Acting Secretary Patrick Shanahan stepped down in June, faced tense moments in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday during his confirmation process for the permanent Secretary job.

Esper, a former Army veteran who served 10 years on active duty and 11 years in the National Guard and Army Reserve, was grilled by multiple senators over his history as a lobbyist for Raytheon, a defense contractor he left in 2017 before becoming Secretary of the Army. Esper insisted there is nothing to worry about.

BOLTON TOUTS NATO ALLIES’ $100B MILITARY SPENDING SPREE AFTER TRUMP PUSH: ‘UNEQUALED TRIUMPH’

“It’s my commitment to the nation’s security, it’s my commitment to the men and women in uniform that drives me,” Esper said when asked about Raytheon by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. “Not anything else.”

After he became Acting Defense Secretary, Esper said in a memo that he would limit his involvement in any matters related to Raytheon, and that his staff would “screen all matters” and consult with the Standards of Conduct Office where appropriate.

During the hearing, he stated that he will employ a “robust screening process” and “remain in constant contact with our ethics personnel.” When asked by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., if he would recuse himself from matters involving Raytheon, Esper asserted that he is ”fully committed to living up to my ethics commitments.”

That was not enough for 2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who claimed that because Esper qualified his recusal instead of committing to recuse himself from any and all matters related to his former employer, it was “a conflict of interest given that Raytheon does billions of dollars worth of business every year with the Defense Department.”

Esper responded by saying that ethics officials at the Pentagon recommended that he not recuse for all matters.

Warren then pointed to an exception to ethics obligations that she said Esper referred to in a memo, which would allow for a waiver that would permit him to get involved in matters that directly affect Raytheon’s financial interest if no other official can do the job.

“This smacks of corruption, plain and simple,” Warren said.

But in a letter to Esper from the Department of Defense’s Office of the General Counsel obtained by Fox News, Director Scott Thompson refuted Warren’s accusations, “At no time while serving as the Secretary of the Army or the Acting Secretary of Defense did you request, seek, or receive a waiver or authorization related to your Ethics Agreement and ethics obligations.”

Esper, who earlier in the hearing said he does not have any financial stake in Raytheon other than the deferred compensation, took issue with Warren’s implication that he is incapable of ethically performing the duties of the job.

“At the age of 18 I went to West Point and I swore an oath to defend this Constitution and I embraced the motto called Duty and Honor and Country and I’ve lived my life in accordance with those values ever since then,” Esper said. “I went to war for this country, I served overseas for this country, I’ve stepped down from jobs that paid me well more than what I was working anywhere else. And each time it was to serve the public good and to serve the young men and women of our armed services.”

According to the Fox News Research Dept. and Open Secrets.org, Warren received $31,919 in campaign donations from the defense industry for her 2020 campaign.  Raytheon gave her nearly $9,000 in 2018.  The company is headquartered in her home state.

Other issues that came up during the hearing included how the United States should deal with Iran.

Esper pointed to the need to focus on Iran and lingering threats from groups like al Qaeda, while building American military capabilities. At the same time, he made clear that “we do not want war with Iran.”

Regarding Russian efforts to interfere with American elections, Esper said the U.S. is in a better position than in the past, but there is still work to be done.

“We’ve been doing more but way short of what is necessary,” he said, adding “we need to be on guard and vigilant.”

In terms of new military technology, Esper said artificial intelligence is of the utmost importance.

“I think artificial intelligence will likely change the character of warfare, and I believe whoever masters it first will dominate on the battlefield for many, many, many years,” he said.

“We have to get there first. We have to.”

The testimony came as tech investor Peter Thiel called out Google for working with China, and not the U.S., on a massive artificial intelligence project. Thiel said the relationship could be “treasonous,” and President Trump said Tuesday morning that his administration would look into it.

TRUMP SUGGESTS GOOGLE COULD BE INVESTIGATED FOR ‘TREASON’

If confirmed, Esper would be the first permanent Defense Secretary since James Mattis stepped down at the end of 2018. Shanahan, who filled the role on an interim basis afterwards, had been considered for the permanent job, but reportedly withdrew due to a 2010 domestic incident that he did not want to be brought up during the confirmation process.

For the duration of Esper’s confirmation process, Navy Secretary Richard Spencer has assumed the role of Acting Defense Secretary, since federal law forbids people under consideration for a permanent secretary position to serve as acting secretary.

Committee Chairman Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., said that a final confirmation vote for Esper could take place as soon as later this week, but no later than next Tuesday.

Bernie Sanders says he’d ‘absolutely’ try to break up Facebook, Google, Amazon

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Tuesday that he would “absolutely” look to break up Big Tech giants like Facebook, Amazon and Google on antitrust grounds.

Speaking at a Washington Post event, Sanders specifically singled out Facebook as having “incredible power over the economy, over the political life of this country in a very dangerous sense.”

He also stated that Amazon is “moving very rapidly to be a monopoly.”

Sanders’ comments come at a perilous time for Silicon Valley, which is facing increased scrutiny from lawmakers on Capitol Hill and the prospect of being broken up or subjected to stringent new regulations.

In recent weeks, Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra came under fire from lawmakers, the Federal Reserve and the Trump administration, while Republicans accused Google of being biased. The FTC has reportedly come to a settlement with Facebook, the details of which have not been made public, that includes a $5 billion fine.

“And it’s not just Amazon,” Sanders said, according to Politico. “I think we need vigorous antitrust legislation in this country because you are seeing – you name the area, whether it’s pharmaceuticals, whether it is Wall Street, whether it is high tech – fewer and fewer gigantic corporations owning those sectors.” He would appoint an attorney general “who would break up these huge corporations,” he added.

Naomi Campbell reveals intense routine for airplane travel

This supermodel’s got a super-unusual travel routine.

Poser extraordinaire Naomi Campbell just revealed her airport routine in a YouTube video — and it’s as one-of-a-kind as she is.

After grabbing a fashion mag and, controversially, a bag of mini Twix bars at duty free (“You know what? I’m getting it … I’m getting it and I don’t care!”), Campbell proceeds to board a plane to Doha, Qatar.

As soon as she finds her seat, it’s showtime: Campbell breaks out a pair of disposable gloves (!) and gets to work, combatting the general grossness of airplanes and all the weird stuff air travel does to our bodies.

In the video, Campbell first wipes down “anything that you could possibly touch,” and she means it: the tray, the TV, the remote, the headrest … even the back of the seat in front of her.

“I do not care what people think of me,” she says, bluntly. “It’s my health and it makes me feel better.”

(Actually, the strategy seems well-received by the woman standing behind her, who asks, “Can you do my seat next?” with a giggle.)

But Campbell’s not done. Post-wipedown, she pulls out a pink, fabric cover for her seat. She has them in a bunch of colors and switches them out based on her mood. On land, she has them hand-washed at her hotel.

Finally sheathed from the insult of the plane seat, Campbell moves onto her beauty routine.

Basically, it entails a whole lot of hydration: she has an entire plastic bag filled with beauty gear that she calls a “hydration pack,” and she’s also been chugging water throughout the video). Also: “masks, masks, masks.”

She means the beauty kind — but she also means the literal kind. Yep, the final step Campbell takes is putting on an actual face mask that she wears the entire flight.

“No matter what plane you take, private or commercial, as the plane descends, people start coughing and sneezing,” Campbell says. “The coughing and sneezing makes me … I just can’t.”

Judge bars Roger Stone from social media, says ex-Trump adviser violated gag order

A federal judge on Tuesday barred former Trump adviser Roger Stone – facing charges of tampering, obstruction and false statements in a case brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller – from posting anything on social media after determining Stone violated her gag order not to discuss the case.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, in federal court in Washington, ordered Stone to stay off Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms, saying he did not abide by her previous order to not comment on the case. She did not order Stone to jail.

“I said you can’t talk about it at all,” Jackson told Stone in court.

JUDGE ORDERS ROGER STONE TO COURT OVER INFLAMMATORY INSTAGRAM POST

Prosecutors argued Stone had violated the judge’s gag order with Instagram posts that disparaged the Mueller investigation and the broader election interference probe.

Defense lawyers have said nothing Stone posted on social media ran afoul of the judge’s order or would prevent an unbiased jury from hearing the case.

Jackson imposed the order in February after Stone posted a photo of the judge with what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun.

Stone, the colorful former longtime political adviser to Trump, was indicted in January.

The indictment does not charge Stone with conspiring with WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website that published emails of Democrats during the 2016 campaign, or with the Russian officers Mueller says hacked them. Instead, it accuses him of lying about his interactions related to WikiLeaks’ release during probes by Congress and Mueller’s team.

Stone has contested the charges.

“I will plead not guilty to these charges,” Stone said at the time. “I will defeat them in court. This is a politically-motivated investigation.”

Indiana police officer who fatally shot black man resigns, union says, due to stress, media attention

A white Indiana police officer who fatally shot a black man, sparking protests and roiling the presidential campaign of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, has resigned, the local police union announced Monday.

The Fraternal Order of Police said Sgt. Ryan O’Neill’s resignation from the South Bend Police Department was due to stress and media attention given to last month’s shooting of Eric Logan. The union also pointed to “hateful things said on social media.”

SOUTH BEND POLICE CALL OUT BUTTIGIEG FOR SENDING PIZZA RATHER THAN APOLOGY AFTER RACE COMMENTS

“Sgt. O’Neill did his job and was forced to defend his own life from a convicted felon who was armed with an eight-inch hunting knife,” FOP president Harvey Mills said in a release. “We’re confident that the investigation into the shooting will determine that the action he took was justified based on the law and his training.”

Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski confirmed he received O’Neill’s resignation letter and that his departure was effective immediately.

Authorities have said O’Neill was responding to a report of a person breaking into cars on June 16 and confronted the 54-year-old Logan, and that the officer said he shot Logan after he refused orders to drop a knife.

A judge has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the shooting, which authorities said was not recorded by O’Neill’s body camera. Protesters, in the wake of the shooting, have called for police reforms and questioned South Bend’s body camera and use of force policies.

The shooting prompted Buttigieg, who’s seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, to leave the campaign trail for several days to answer questions about public safety and race.

In a statement Monday, Buttigieg said efforts to strengthen trust between law enforcement and community members continue.

“We will await results of the independent criminal investigation, and apply any lessons learned to our work on the future of the Police Department and the community,” he said in the statement.

Logan’s brother, Tyree Bonds, said the family still will pursue a federal lawsuit that alleges O’Neill used excessive deadly force. The city of South Bend is also named in the lawsuit.
