Manhunt in San Antonio after shooting at bar kills 2, injures 5

A manhunt was underway Sunday night after two people were killed and five others were injured following a shooting during a concert at a San Antonio club, Texas authorities said.

Police said officers were called shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday to the Ventura, a music venue located along San Antonio’s Museum Reach portion of the River Walk.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said an argument broke out inside of the club between a group of individuals and one person pulled out a gun and started shooting.

New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6119872406001_6119872308001-vs New York Times editorial board endorses Warren, Klobuchar for president fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 82fe4224-1b56-52ee-b76b-4b24157ce415

The New York Times announced late Sunday that its editorial board was breaking “from convention” and will endorse two candidates for president in 2020: Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The paper’s endorsement has traditionally been one of the most coveted for a Democratic politician. The editorial board wrote that in choosing these two candidates, it recognizes that both “radical” and “realist” models should be considered.

The paper said it spent more than 12 hours with the candidates before coming to its conclusion.

“The history of the editorial board would suggest that we would side squarely with the candidate with a more traditional approach to pushing the nation forward, within the realities of a constitutional framework and a multiparty country,” the editorial read. “But the events of the past few years have shaken the confidence of even the most committed institutionalists. We are not veering away from the values we espouse, but we are rattled by the weakness of the institutions that we trusted to undergird those values.”

The paper called Warren a “gifted storyteller” who has “emerged as a standard-bearer for the Democratic left.” The editorial board called her path to the White House is “challenging, but not hard to envision.”

Warren reposted the article on Twitter, joking, “So I guess @AmyKlobuchar and I are now both undefeated in New York Times endorsements!”

Klobuchar was described as the “standard-bearer,” but for the party’s center. The paper gushed that she is the very definition of “Midwestern charisma, grit and sticktoitiveness.”

The paper pointed to her goals of slashing childhood poverty, achieve 100 percent net-zero emissions by 2050 and her push for a more robust public option in healthcare. He moderate approach to governing would make for a formidable deal maker in Washington, the editorial wrote.

Reports on how she treats her staff “gave us pause,” but she pledged to do better in the future, the paper wrote.

Perhaps as important as who the paper endorsed is who it did not.

Joe Biden, the former vice president who continues to lead in polls, but his agenda does not go far enough on issues like climate and health care, the board wrote. The editorial board also wrote that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., appeared to have missed his moment. The paper pointed out that he would be 79 when he’s sworn in and has recently suffered a heart attack. “His health is a serious concern,” it wrote.

The paper said it is looking forward to watching South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg develop as a politician and said it was impressed with his resume, but it also pointed out that he never won more than 11,000 votes. The paper said it hopes Andrew Yang, the entrepreneur, also continues to work in politics and recommended looking to New York to get started.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor who the editorial board endorsed twice, falls short of the editorial board’s aspirations for 2020. The editorial pointed to issues like barring his own media company from investigating him and his refusal to let women who signed nondisclosure settlements speak to the media. The paper said his campaign approach “reveals more about America’s broken system than his likelihood of fixing it.”

Doris Miller: What to know about the African American Pearl Harbor hero honored by US Navy

At Pearl Harbor Monday, the U.S. Navy will honor a World War II hero when a new aircraft carrier is named for Mess Attendant 2nd Class Doris Miller.

He was an American man of many firsts, going beyond the call of duty.

HONORS

A future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier will be named after him.

It’s the first aircraft carrier ever named for a black American.

“In selecting this name, we honor the contributions of all our enlisted ranks, past and present, men and women, of every race, religion and background,” said Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly in a statement. “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. observed, ‘Everybody can be great – because anybody can serve’. No one understands the importance and true meaning of service than those who have volunteered to put the needs of others above themselves.”

This will be the second ship named in honor of Miller.

USS Miller, a destroyer escort, was previously named in his honor.

His image was used in a 1943 U.S. Navy recruitment poster.

PEARL HARBOR

Miller was recognized for manning a machine gun on the USS West Virginia and returning fire against Japanese planes during the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

Miller, then 22, was collecting laundry when the attack alarm sounded. His normal battle station in an antiaircraft battery magazine was destroyed by a torpedo. He went on deck and carried wounded soldiers to safety before receiving orders to aid the mortally wounded captain on the bridge.

A black American was not allowed to man a gun in the Navy in 1941, Doreen Ravenscroft, a team leader for the Doris Miller Memorial, said, as The Associated Press reported.

“He subsequently manned a 50-cal. Browning anti-aircraft machine gun until he ran out of ammunition and was ordered to abandon ship,” the Navy said, noting Miller was not trained to operate the gun.

“It wasn’t hard. I just pulled the trigger and she worked fine. I had watched the others with these guns. I guess I fired her for about 15 minutes,” Miller said later, according to Naval history records.

NAVY CROSS

Miller was the first black American to receive the Navy Cross for valor.

Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, the commander in chief of the Pacific Fleet, presented the Navy Cross to Miller in Pearl Harbor in May 1942.

DEATH

Miller died while serving on a ship that was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in November 1943.

“I think that Doris Miller is an American hero simply because of what he represents as a young man going beyond the call of what’s expected,” said Ravenscroft.

“Without him really knowing, he actually was a part of the Civil Rights movement because he changed the thinking in the Navy,” Ravenscroft added.

Raheem Mostert has breakout performance in 49ers’ NFC Championship win

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert had a breakout game in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, breaking a team record set by Colin Kaepernick.

Mostert finished with 220 rushing yards on 29 carries. He had four touchdowns in the, 37-20 victory. Mostert scored three times in the first half and once in the second – which put the nail in the coffin. Kaepernick had 181 rushing yards during the 2012-13 playoffs.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS WIN NFC CHAMPIONSHIP OVER GREEN BAY PACKERS

The Packers had no answers for Mostert once he began getting a majority of the carries in the absence of Tevin Coleman, who left the game with an elbow injury. Mostert just kept running it down the throat of the Packers defense and it worked.

It worked so well that San Francisco only had quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo throw the ball eight times in the entire game. Garoppolo was 6-for-8 with 77 passing yards. Two of his passes were thrown to Mostert, who gained six receiving yards in the game.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WIN AFC CHAMPIONSHIP OVER TENNESSEE TITANS

Mostert became the only player in NFL history to rush for more than 200 yards and score four or more rushing touchdowns, according to NFL Research. His 220 rushing yards was second-most in an NFL playoff game, finishing just 28 yards behind Eric Dickerson who did it with the Los Angeles Rams against the Dallas Cowboys in 1985.

Mostert is a relative unknown in NFL circles. He joined the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in May 2015. He would be on the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and Chicago Bears before he got meaningful carries with the 49ers starting in 2019.

This season, Mostert played in all 16 games. He rushed for 772 yards on 137 carries and had eight rushing touchdowns.

Steve Hilton on royal drama: ‘I’m sick of Harry. I’m sick of Meghan. I’m sick of this story’

Steve Hilton weighed in Sunday on the drama involving the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to “step back” as members of the royal family, reacting to Prince Harry on Sunday publicly addressing the situation.

“To be completely honest, I’m sick of Harry. I’m sick of Meghan. I’m sick of this story. I’m sick of the royals,” Hilton said on his show “The Next Revolution.” “As far as I’m concerned, when the Queen, who we all love very much, is finished with her reign then Britain should go and stop being a banana republic as it is when we have the royal family and become a real republic.”

“Abolish the monarchy,” Hilton added. “That is my populist take.”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY TO STILL BE CALLED DUKE AND DUCHESS, PAY BACK MONEY FOR HOME RENOVATION

In a speech given at a dinner for supporters of the Sentebale charity in London Sunday, the Prince addressed why he and his wife, Meghan Markle, choose to relinquish their “royal highness” titles and move part-time to Canada.

“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly,” the Prince said. “It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is, we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you.”

Former deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland, a guest on the program, said that Prince Harry may regret his decision to “break with his family” when he is older.

“I think Prince Harry as a young man and his may end up regretting and have a number of years to regret, regret breaking with his family, particularly with his grandmother, and that sometimes things done in haste and youth are not the things that keep you happy in old age,” McFarland said.

Jenna Ellis, a Trump 2020 senior legal advisor,  praised the Prince for his decision.

“He may have been born into this, but he’s making, now as a husband and a father, the best decisions for his family,” Ellis said.

Hilton said Prince Harry should step out of the limelight.

“Please just sort of go away and figure it out and just stop with this endless obsession with the royals,” Hilton said.

Reporter’s Notebook: How Trump’s impeachment trial could play out in the Senate

Westlake Legal Group AP20015059524651 Reporter's Notebook: How Trump's impeachment trial could play out in the Senate fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc f5a52c02-79c2-5f6d-b797-a2fd49165a2a Chad Pergram article

It wasn’t long ago that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she’d withhold sending articles of impeachment to the Senate to start President Trump’s trial until she better understood “the arena” in which the House’s impeachment managers would operate. The Speaker threatened to hoard the articles until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., offered his resolution to establish a framework for a trial.

Well, here we are, less than two days before the trial., and McConnell still hasn’t formally released his resolution for the trial parameters.

“The House managers have absolutely no idea what the structure of the trial two days before the trial begins,” groused one source with the House Democrats working on the impeachment trial.

Nothing has compelled McConnell to cough up his resolution until the Senate would consider it Tuesday afternoon. And, the Kentucky Republican said he had the votes to roll both House and Senate Democrats with his proposal, meaning he’s under no pressure to publicize the outline officially. And, despite her ultimatum, Pelosi dispatched the articles to the Senate last week, still lacking McConnell’s plan.

Here’s what to expect in the coming days:

House impeachment managers are expected to go through a “walkthrough” on the Senate floor Monday around 11 a.m. ET. Senate workers toiled over the past few days, reconfiguring the Senate floor so it’s set up more like a courtroom than a legislative assembly. They’ve hauled in rounded tables from the Senate carpentry shop for the “prosecution” and “defense.” Workers even prepared a potential chair and microphone for a witness – a witness stand of sorts – should the Senate ever actually haul in a witness for Trump’s impeachment trial.

Each session will begin with a 19th Century proclamation, dating back to the first Senate trial of a president, Andrew Johnson in 1868: “All persons are commanded to keep silence, on pain of imprisonment.” And, the only thing we truly know after that is the fact that senators are anchored to their desks inside the Senate chamber for hours at a time, listening to each side present their case. They can’t mill about the chamber, head to the cloakroom to take a call, fiddle around with their iPhones. The senators are to sit at their desks and digest the presentations and potential testimony. This isn’t the usual clubby Senate where members dash in and out of the chamber, grab a Coke in the cloakroom and then head to the bank of six elevators to chat up reporters. Senators are in for an entirely different enterprise than what they are accustomed to doing. Only 15 current senators have remained in the body from then-President Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999.

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL COULD HURT THIS 2020 DEM’S CHANCES THE MOST, REPORTER SAYS

Of course, there were no iPhones – and a lot fewer digital distractions – during the 1999 trial. During last year’s House impeachment hearings, Trump torched former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch one morning on Twitter. The hearing room buzzed about Trump’s digital fusillade against Yovanovitch as she sat at the witness table. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., almost immediately read the president’s tweet into the record.

House impeachment managers and the president’s defense team will have minimal, digital access for the trial. But, if senators follow the rules, they might as well be operating as though it were 1999.

Or, for that matter, 1868.

The sportsbook at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas should post a betting line on which senator’s phone rings first during the trial.

So, other than everyone keeping quiet and off the grid, we don’t know a whole lot about how this is going to go down. McConnell has said repeatedly he intends to follow “the Clinton model” from 1999 – likely with some modifications. But the specificity of that arrangement is far from clear.

In a recent interview, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., conceded that even he and Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, R-S.D., “weren’t 100 percent sure” about what senators agreed to after an all-Senate conclave to establish structure for Clinton’s tribunal. So, without any similar meeting involving all 100 senators, this is what we are told will happen:

McConnell is expected to offer a resolution Tuesday afternoon allowing the House managers to consume 24 hours to present their case – followed by 24 hours by Trump’s defense. There would then be a period of up to 16 hours for senators to present written questions through Chief Justice John Roberts.

McConnell contended he had 53 votes for his trial resolution – though sight unseen.

TIM SCOTT ON DEMS’ IMPEACHMENT FOCUS: THEY’RE ‘PRETTY CONCERNED’ BECAUSE AMERICANS ‘SOLIDLY BEHIND’ TRUMP

Fox News has been told pretrial motions could be in order following adoption of the resolution. One could imagine Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and others offering various resolutions to dictate the pathway of the trial. All are subject to debate. Tuesday could grow rather testy as Democrats try to draw attention to what they’ve called an unfair process. Over the weekend, sources with the Democrats rejected the idea that they should take their grievances to Roberts, presiding over the trial.

It’s possible that once the Senate approved the resolution to set up the ground rules for the trial that a motion to dismiss could be in order. That’s subject to 51 yeas. But, on Fox News, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., declared such a motion was “dead for practical purposes.”

Graham said, “The idea of dismissing the case early on is not going to happen. We don’t have the votes for that.”

But, someone could move to dismiss down the road. That opportunity is likely more than a week away.

Fox News was hearing that the Senate intended to plow through the trial in four 12-hour blocks, stretching over four days, beginning Wednesday. With the Senate not starting the trial until 1 p.m. each day, that could mean multiple 12-14-hour days.

“It is completely unfathomable,” said one source with the Democrats. “Is Sen. McConnell going to have 12 hour trial days which run until 2 or 3 in the morning?”

If that’s the case, the Senate will chew up enormous blocks of time this week – through next Saturday, ending well after the witching hour.

“That is a complete sham and would try to hide the president’s misconduct,” the source said.

A Democratic aide added that the proposition was “preposterous.”

TRUMP JR: IF WE’RE HEARING FROM WITNESSES, I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THE OTHER SIDE

A senior administration official told Fox News it was doubtful that Trump’s team would use all time allocated to the defense.

“If we do, we’re in real trouble,” the official said.

All of this would run through next Saturday – or early next Sunday morning.

Then, on Monday, Jan. 26, the Senate would entertain questions from senators. A total of 16 hours of questions could eat up a day or two.

Finally, toward the middle of next week, it’s on to the issue of documents and witnesses. The very first vote in order after moving through the prosecution, the defense and questions from senators would be a debate and vote on issuing subpoenas for documents and/or witnesses.

Once that’s settled, other motions are in order under the Senate’s catalog of 26 impeachment rules. That would include a motion to dismiss the case. There’s also the option of a motion to go to closing argument. That would trigger final votes on each article of impeachment.

If things go quickly, there could be some prodigiously long days ahead on Capitol Hill. It also means the Senate could wrap up the trial by the end of the month.

Schumer: Dems will ‘force votes on witnesses and documents’ in Trump impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group Schumer Schumer: Dems will 'force votes on witnesses and documents' in Trump impeachment trial Vandana Rambaran fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/chuck-schumer fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5b3214e7-bd89-57a3-82d5-d99dc41d9361

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vowed Sunday evening to “force votes on witnesses and documents” in the impeachment trial against President Trump starting this week, and suggested that Republicans were engaged in a cover-up to block Democrats from doing so.

During a news conference, Schumer questioned why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was “being so secretive about his proposal” to call witnesses, a point of contention for weeks between opposing congressional leaders gearing up to begin hearing arguments as they consider two charges against Trump for obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

McConnell has vowed to start the trial without making a decision on calling witnesses, following a similar pattern to then-President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999.

TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL COULD HURT THIS 2020 DEM’S CHANCES THE MOST, REPORTER SAYS

Schumer went on to say Trump was “afraid of the truth,” claiming the president knew he was guilty.

“We Democrats aim to get the truth,” Schumer said. “Make no mistake about it, we will force votes on witnesses and documents, and it will be up to four republicans to side with the Constitution, to side with our democracy, to side with rule of law, and not side, in blind obeisance, to President Trump and his desire to suppress the truth. Because, in my judgment, he probably thinks he’s guilty.”

As Schumer addressed reporters in New York, Trump brushed off impeachment and touted his economy and job records.

He told farmers at an event in Texas, “What do I get out of it? I get impeached, that’s what I get out of it.”

‘Knots Landing’ stars initially didn’t know premise: ‘I thought it was about Andy Griffith and a houseboat’

In Hollywood, when a formula proves itself to be successful, it’s often replicated or developed into a different property. Such was the case with “Knots Landing,” a spinoff of the wildly popular television series “Dallas” that premiered in December 1979 and ran for 14 seasons and 344 episodes before its ending in May 1993.

“Knots Landing” surrounded the ebb-and-flow lives of four married couples who converged on a fictitious southern California cul-de-sac known as Seaview Circle.

The series’ three leading ladies – Donna Mills, 79, Joan Van Ark, 76, and Michele Lee, 77 – captured the hearts of women in households throughout America and ushered in a new way of storytelling that allowed mothers and women of different backgrounds to connect.

However, what ballooned into a tribute-worthy series with a history all its own began as a confusing concept that some within the cast couldn’t grasp, at least initially.

“I went on the show in the second year and I didn’t… I had never seen the show. I thought it was a show about a houseboat with Andy Griffith,” Mills told Fox News exclusively on Saturday night at the 40th-anniversary lobby tribute at the famed Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles.

“But then, when I got on the show, I said, ‘This show could be really good,’” she continued.

“It was not serialized at that point. They did a separate episode every week, and I said to them, I said, ‘You gotta put a hook at the end, and get them back next week.’ And, they ended up doing that and that’s when the show started to really blossom and really take off.”

Michele Lee, who played Karen on “Knots,” told Fox News she’s most proud of the show’s overall ability to pivot with the times. She also enjoyed the “everyday people” dichotomy of its existence.

“That show had a wonderful sense of humor about it, as well as… a pretty good look at a world and America as it changed,” Lee said. “I always like to say that we changed as America changed. And so, it wasn’t about rich people up on a hill and our need to be wealthy, right, it was everyday people – except for maybe some of us,” she quipped. “But, everyday people living around a cul-de-sac, loving our neighbors and hating our neighbors.”

Lee came clean and admitted that at first glance she also wasn’t sure of the direction the show was readying itself to take. However, she noted that paying attention to the characters in “Dallas” helped her compartmentalize the role she ultimately played. Lee said off the bat, she wasn’t sure she could even play Karen but made a point to note the character’s transcendent personality, which showcased her as a strong woman.

“At first I didn’t know what the h— the show was about,” she explained when asked if she had reservations going in about the show’s chances of success. “And then, when I read it, I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t know if I could do this. This woman is just so out there.’ She’s banging down doors and being rather ‘ridiculous’ in the way she’s handling the world around her.’”

Lee maintained: “But then, I saw ‘Dallas,’ and I thought, oh, that’s what it’s about. It’s like ‘Dallas,’ except we weren’t, because we were more everyday people. And certainly, my character was really… she was someone who was so right about the place women were, or should be in the world, that she was the Rock of Gibraltar of the show and it was one of the things that I loved about my character.”

CHRISTOPHER LAWFORD, NEPHEW OF JFK AND ‘GENERAL HOSPITAL’ ACTOR, DEAD AT 63: REPORT

The ladies of Seaview Circle saw their show as one worthy of recognition 40 years after its first episode aired. When asked about its ability to connect with its audience, the consensus was unanimous – “Knots Landing” managed to do it on a level that changed the course forever.

“I’ll tell you, when there’s relatability in a show where they say, ‘Hey, that’s just like…’ – ‘This Is Us’ right now is doing it,” Van Ark compared. “It’s the relatability that maybe people didn’t relate as well to ‘Dallas,’ which was a wonderful, incredible, iconic show. But, with ‘Knots Landing,’ there was many storylines and many fights and many marriages and dates – family dynamic on a different level… and it was rich, it was deep and relatable, and that’s why it went so long.”

‘YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS’ STAR KRISTOFF ST. JOHN’S DEATH AT 52 DEVASTATES SOAP OPERA COMMUNITY

“What’s so great right now is that the ‘Housewives’… the ensemble shows with ensemble women is coming to the forefront,” she added.

“’Knots’ did that way back when. But, we were ahead of our time and it still works and it works even better now because women are becoming empowered and getting equal pay for equal work.”

It was on the back of Raheem Mostert that the 49ers were able to defeat the Packers. Mostert had a breakout performance with 220 rushing yards on 29 carries with four rushing touchdowns.

Mostert set a team record for most rushing yards in a playoff game, which was previously set by quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The running back was so dominant that 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo only had to throw the ball eight times. He was 6-for-8 with 77 passing yards.

Deebo Samuel had two catches for 46 yards, George Kittle had one catch for 19 yards, Kendrick Bourne had one catch for six yards and Mostert had two catches for six yards.

The 49ers’ defense was dominant for most of the game. The Packers failed to score a single point in the first half of the game. They forced Aaron Rodgers to throw two interceptions and fumble the ball three times, losing one of them early in the game.

Rodgers finished 31-for-39 with 326 passing yards and two touchdown passes. One pass was to Aaron Jones and the other was to Jace Sternberger. Jones also had a rushing touchdown to go along with his 56 rushing yards.

But the Packers had no answer for Mostert. He scored three times in the first half and put the finishing touches on the game with a 22-yard scamper for the final nail in the coffin for San Francisco.

The 49ers will play for a championship for the first time since the 2012 season. Kaepernick led the Niners against the Baltimore Ravens, but lost the game 34-31.

San Francisco were last champions of the NFL world in the 1994 season when Steve Young and Jerry Rice were leading the offense.
