Doctored pics of Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton used in violence against women campaign

An Italian artist looking to raise awareness of violence against women has unveiled a series of posters featuring doctored, roughed-up faces of top political figures such as Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The “Just Because I am a Woman” campaign created by AleXsandro Palombo, which is currently on display in Milan, also features altered portraits of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French first lady Brigitte Macron.

“I am a victim of domestic abuse. I am paid less. I’ve experienced genital mutilation,” reads a message underneath each of the posters, according to the BBC. “I do not have the right to dress as I want. I can’t decide who I’m going to marry. I was raped.”

The posters note that such violence against women does not differ between races, classes or religions, the BBC points out.

In a statement, Palombo said he created the posters “to illustrate the drama that affects millions of women throughout the world… with the aim of denouncing, raising awareness and obtaining a real response from institutions and politics.”

It’s not the first time Palombo has altered portraits of well-known figures to evoke a response.

In 2015, he rolled out a series of posters showing the doctored, battered faces of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie, next to a message that “No woman is immune from domestic abuse.”

Sanders-Warren debate clash over sexism fuels their campaign fundraising

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6123021976001_6123027386001-vs Sanders-Warren debate clash over sexism fuels their campaign fundraising Paul Steinhauser fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9b5a9fdf-539b-5534-95af-ee3aaf57fa18

The on-stage salvos between Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren at Tuesday’s Democratic presidential nomination debate in Iowa over whether or not he told her a woman couldn’t win the presidency in the 2020 election are actually paying off for both candidates in terms of fundraising.

In an update to his supporters on Wednesday night on Twitter, Sanders announced that in the past two days “including the period following the recent debate last night, we have received more than 200,000 contributions totaling nearly $4 million.”

AUDIO RELEASED OF TESTY ON-STAGE POST-DEBATE SANDERS-WARREN CLASH

The populist lawmaker, who’s making his second straight White House run, added that “I say that not to boast about money. Money is money. But that just indicates the kind of support that we are receiving, 200,000 contributions in the last two days alone.”

And he added that 25,000 of those contributions were from first-time donors to his campaign, touting that “if that’s not momentum, then I don’t know what momentum is.”

The Warren campaign tweeted out soon after the debate ended that they “just had our all-time best fundraising hour of a debate, with the most donations ever during a debate day. LFG, Team Warren!”

Fox News reached out to Warren’s campaign on Thursday morning for an update on their cash haul the past two days but had yet to receive a response at the time this report was published.

The biggest headline coming out of the prime-time debate was the clash between the two progressive standard-bearers in the Democratic presidential field over the disputed CNN report that Sanders had privately told Warren in private December 2018 meeting that a woman could not realistically become president in 2020. The meeting took place as both lawmakers were each gearing up to launch White House bids.

“Well, as a matter of fact I didn’t say it,” Sanders insisted at the debate. And minutes later he unequivocally denied that the conversation took place.

Warren said she disagreed with the notion that a woman candidate couldn’t defeat President Trump in November’s general election.

“Bernie is my friend and I’m not here to try to fight with Bernie,” she also explained, before saying it was important to take the issue of sexism “head-on.”

But at the end of the debate, Warren refused to shake Sanders’ hand as the two appeared to have a brief, heated conversation.

CNN on Wednesday night released audio of that exchange.

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren is heard saying on the recording.

“What?” responded Sanders.

“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren repeated.

“You know, let’s not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,” Sanders replied.

“Anytime,” she quickly fired back.

“You called me a liar,” he interjected. “You told me — all right, let’s not do it now.”

The clash came as Sanders’ fundraising continues to soar – he hauled in $34 million the past three months, far more than any other Democratic candidate – and his poll numbers have jumped. At the same time, Warren’s seen her fundraising and poll numbers dip.

Lewis, Alabama hand No. 4 Auburn its first loss, 83-64

Westlake Legal Group Raymond-Hawkins Lewis, Alabama hand No. 4 Auburn its first loss, 83-64 fox-news/sports/ncaa/auburn-tigers fox-news/sports/ncaa/alabama-crimson-tide fox-news/sports/ncaa-bk fox-news/sports/ncaa fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 066f26e0-4936-5144-84c8-af7de828855b

Nate Oats and Alabama had two achievements to celebrate: a huge win and knocking rival Auburn from the dwindling ranks of the unbeaten.

Kira Lewis Jr. scored 25 points and the Crimson Tide easily handled the fourth-ranked Tigers with an 83-64 rout on Wednesday night.

“We’ve been needing this signature win,” said Oats, the Tide’s first-year coach. “We were close a few times. If we’re going to make a run and try to play in the NCAA Tournament, you’ve got to get these signature wins.

“It’s good to get that monkey off our back.”

All the better when it comes against your much-hyped in-state rival.

The Crimson Tide (9-7, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) led wire-to-wire. The Tigers (15-1, 3-1) had a miserable shooting night and left No. 7 San Diego State (18-0) as the nation’s last unbeaten team.

“To be able to beat a good team in Alabama on their floor you’ve got to be very good, and we didn’t even come close,” Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said.

It was the Tide’s first win over a Top 5 team since a 79-57 home defeat of then-No. 5 Texas A&M on Dec. 30, 2017. This one was largely one-sided, too.

Lewis scored 17 points in the second half for Alabama. He was 8 of 14 from the field and made 8 of 9 free throws.

Herbert Jones had 14 points and 12 rebounds. Alex Reese scored 13 points and James Bolden had 11 for the Tide.

Auburn, which had won 27 of 28 games dating back to last season’s Final Four run, gave up a season high in points while scoring its season low.

Isaac Okoro led the Tigers with 13 points. Austin Wiley had 10 points and 13 rebounds and Jamal Johnson also scored 10.

Auburn closed within 50-47 on back-to-back 3-pointers from Johnson midway through the second half, but the comeback attempt fizzled from there.

Alabama had some bulletin board material after Auburn’s Anfernee McLemore said before the season that Coleman Coliseum was one of his favorite places to play because “I like seeing all the fans disappointed when we win.”

“Of course we used it as motivation,” Jones said, “an opposing player saying our gym was his favorite place to play.”

Added Oats: “We made sure that quote was on the screen, the last thing they saw before they went out.”

BIG PICTURE

Auburn: Missed its first 10 3-point attempts and finished making just 20 of 63 shots (31.7%). The Tigers shot 25% from 3-point range (7 of 28) and made 17 of 30 foul shots.

“They did a good job contesting shots at the rim,” Wiley said. “We didn’t finish good at all tonight.”

Alabama: Has won seven of its last 10 games after starting 0-2 against ranked teams. The Tide gave the fans a huge reason to cheer in the first season for Oats, who said it might have been his team’s best defensive performance.

SAMIR STRUGGLES

Auburn’s leading scorer, Samir Doughty, failed to score for nearly the first 23 minutes and wound up fouling out. He missed his first seven shots with six turnovers before hitting a basket with 17:10 left. Doughty finished with six points, 10 below his average, on 2-of-11 shooting.

FOUL FESTIVAL

The teams were whistled for a combined 54 fouls. Auburn point guard J’Von McCormick also fouled out. Alabama made the Tigers pay with a 29-of-37 foul shooting performance.

UP NEXT

Auburn visits Florida, which has won three of its first four SEC games, on Saturday.

Alabama hosts Missouri on Saturday.

Report: Vets missed chances involving Breeders’ Cup fatality

Westlake Legal Group Mongolian-Groom Report: Vets missed chances involving Breeders' Cup fatality fox-news/sports/horse-racing fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 1b9c0e7d-9964-5237-81bf-e6c816a178eb

A report on the death of Mongolian Groom in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita says veterinarians missed opportunities to remove the gelding from the $6 million race because of time constraints or deficiencies in the process used to evaluate horses.

In the 20-page report issued Wednesday, Dr. Larry Bramlage identified six suggested improvements aimed at refining safety and evaluation protocols for future events.

Mongolian Groom, a 4-year-old gelding, suffered what Cup officials described as “a serious fracture” of his left hind leg in the late stages of the Classic last November, which was shown on national television. Four vets recommended that he be euthanized.

Bramlage noted it was “unlikely” that the track surface influenced Mongolian Groom’s injury since it had recently been removed and re-done and there was no significant rain at the time. He said the question of whether Santa Anita’s surface predisposes horses to an increased incidence of injury long term was beyond the scope of his report.

Bramlage said Mongolian Groom had small stress fractures in both hind cannon bones before the Classic, but they hadn’t caused any inflammation in the fetlock joint even though they were just millimeters away from the joint surface. He said once the gelding’s left hind fracture occurred during the race, it resulted in a chain of events that created the fatal injury.

“There is no evidence that the horse’s injury was ignored or covered up,” Bramlage wrote.

He said the defect in Mongolian Groom’s left hind cannon bone was roughly one-quarter inch in size and not easily spotted on X-rays. It would have taken a combination of confirming lameness and X-ray proof to diagnose.

“It is not an easy task at any time,” Bramlage wrote, “but is especially difficult in the circumstances of a pre-race examination.”

Bramlage also found there was “no reason to believe medication played any role in the horse’s injury.”

During Breeders’ Cup week, Bramlage said Mongolian Groom was informally on a watch list for increased observation, but he said four other Classic runners were on the same list. In all, 24 Cup horses — including Mongolian Groom — were on the list for extra scrutiny. Of those, eight were disqualified from competition.

Three different officials made multiple observations that Mongolian Groom was “stiff” or “choppy” from behind, but was symmetrical in both hind legs, similar to his previous two races. He was one of 17 horses that had such issues on the pre-race barn exams. Sixteen of those horses competed without incident.

“It is hard to fault a process that had a 99.6% accuracy rate,” Bramlage said, noting that of the 229 horses that competed in last year’s world championships, Mongolian Groom was the only one to be injured.

But Kathy Guillermo, senior vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said Mongolian Groom was “raced to his death” with two stress fractures.

“This should never have happened,” said Guillermo. “If the racing industry had listened to PETA five years ago when we urged a trial study of CurveBeam’s CT imaging equipment, Mongolian Groom would likely be alive today.”

Guillermo also said PETA isn’t convinced that medications played no role in Mongolian Groom’s death.

Bramlage’s six recommendations were:

— Pre-identify horses before arrival at the event with histories of concerns to be looked at

— Focus responsibility for individual horse exams. Seven regulatory vets looked at Mongolian Groom a total of 10 times and Bramlage concluded that had there been fewer people, a more focused assessment may have resulted

— Improve the quality of on-track observations leading up to the event

— Create space in the barn area where regulatory vets could observe horses on the extra security list jog in a circle

— Make diagnostic imaging part of the pre-race exams for selected horses

— Take advantage of all available video footage of horses before the event

After the event, the Breeders’ Cup board of directors hired Bramlage, of Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Kentucky, to conduct an evaluation of Mongolian Groom’s pre-race condition and injury, as well as all pre-race safety and evaluation protocols in place for the two-day world championships.

At the time, Mongolian Groom became the 37th horse to die at Santa Anita since December 2018.

The CHRB is expected to release its long-awaited report on the track’s deaths later this month.

In preparing the report, Mongolian Groom’s trainer, groom, exercise rider and jockey were interviewed, along with members of the veterinary teams from the California Horse Racing Board, the Breeders’ Cup and Santa Anita, and racing executives from track owner The Stronach Group, the racing board and Breeders’ Cup.

Bramlage reviewed the gelding’s veterinary and training records, necropsy report, medication history and relevant workout videos leading up to the Cup.

Last year, Santa Anita and the Breeders’ Cup put in place extensive safety, medication and evaluation protocols for the Cup, which was held at the track for a record 10th time.

NASCAR is taking a right turn onto the road course in Indianapolis

NASCAR will be taking a right turn in Indianapolis. Several, in fact.

The sanctioning body has announced that the second-tier Xfinity Series will race on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s infield road course for the first time this July 4th weekend.

The final layout for the track will be determined after testing next week, but the version used for the Indycar Grand Prix of Indianapolis in early May features 14 turns over its 2,439-mile length.

“As we’ve seen in recent years, road course racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series provides some of the most thrilling action of the entire season, and we are excited to bring it to an iconic venue like Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” NASCAR managing director of racing operations and international development Ben Kennedy said.

The switch comes less than two weeks after Roger Penske took ownership of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with an eye on adding new events and invigorating the historic facility.

The race will take place on Saturday, July 4th, the day before the NASCAR Cup Series Brickyard 400 is held on the oval track. The Xfinity Series raced on the oval in September last year.

The Indianapolis race is one of five road course events currently scheduled for the 2020 Xfinity season.

Influential evangelical leader on why Trump will get more Christian support in 2020

President Trump is set to mark Religious Freedom Day by signing an executive order expanding “Constitutional prayer” in public schools— just one of the reasons why his re-election is so important to Christians, Stephen Strang, the founder and CEO of Charisma News, told Fox News.

The author of “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election: Why He Must Win and What’s at Stake for Christians if He Loses” said Trump is pushing back against an anti-Christian culture with his new action.

CHRISTIANS SEE ‘ALARMING’ TREND WORLDWIDE AS CHINA BUILDS ‘BLUEPRINT OF PERSECUTION’

“The joke is as long as there’s exams, there’ll be prayer in schools,” Strang told “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy, adding, “It’s their constitutional right.

The self-described “Christian journalist” imparts the “spiritual point of view” about Trump, as opposed to the political or cultural one that is often discussed in the media.

MORE ON FAITH

“I think that the hatred against Donald Trump can only be explained in spiritual terms,” he said. “Christians call it spiritual warfare.”

He explains Christians said “enough is enough” and were praying for a leader, and Trump is the “very unlikely person” who “has become a champion of religious liberty.”

Strang added, “Who would’ve thought that a New York billionaire that is a TV celebrity would become a champion of religious rights or become president of the United States?… I think he’s been a great leader but he doesn’t get much credit for it.”

After the now-retired Christianity Today editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, called for the removal of Trump from office, the Trump 2020 campaign launched Evangelicals for Trump at a Latino megachurch in Miami.

Trump won white evangelicals by more than 81 percent in the 2016 presidential election, according to exit polls, and Strang predicts he “absolutely” will earn their support again in November.

“I think his evangelical percentage is going to go up,” Strang said.

Tomi Lahren on murder of 92-year-old NYC woman: ‘Someone needs to answer for’ sanctuary policies

Someone needs to answer for liberal policies in sanctuary cities that are hurting communities, Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren said Thursday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Lahren said that the assault and murder of a 92-year-old woman named Maria Fuertes is “sanctuary cities and sanctuary states at work.”

“And the question that needs to be asked to these Democratic leaders is who is made safer by these sanctuary policies?” she asked. “It’s certainly not the American people. And, in fact, it’s actually immigrant communities that suffer the most from sanctuary city policies because these people — these criminal aliens — re-offend oftentimes in those communities making them more dangerous.”

ICE ISSUES DETAINER FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ACCUSED OF MURDERING 92-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

On Monday federal immigration authorities issued a detainer for an illegal immigrant who is in NYPD custody for the alleged sexual assault and murder of Fuertes in Queens last week.

Reeaz Khan, 21, a Guyanese national who is in the country illegally, is accused of violently attacking and raping her as she was walking home near Liberty Avenue and 127th Street around midnight on Jan. 6.

He was arrested Thursday night and confessed to the murder, The New York Post reported.

According to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) press release, Khan was previously arrested in November on assault and weapons charges. ICE had issued a detainer for him then, but Khan was released from custody because of New York City’s sanctuary policies.

In a statement, the NYPD said it “did not receive an ICE detainer” regarding Khan and a spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio said that officials “mourn with the family of Ms. Fuertes.”

“It is shameful that the Trump administration is politicizing this tragedy,” she said.

“It sounds great to put out a statement, but it’s a little too late,” Lahren remarked. “And, I’m sure that the family of this woman and the family of those who have been murdered by illegal immigrants — especially criminal aliens, especially when detainers have been placed on them by ICE — they want to know why these people are allowed to walk the streets.

“And you couple that with the felon-friendly policies that you just mentioned of course in New York and absolutely here in California, and you have mayhem. You have Gotham City,” she concluded. “Someone needs to answer for this.”

GOP Rep. Gaetz denies creating sex ‘game’ while in state legislature, amid nasty feud with local pol

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6121232755001_6121237838001-vs GOP Rep. Gaetz denies creating sex 'game' while in state legislature, amid nasty feud with local pol Tyler Olson fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5038f086-da15-5fe6-ad4d-ebab582ee87f

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said he did not create a game that rewarded legislators for sleeping with lobbyists, staffers and married lawmakers after he was accused of doing so by a Florida state representative as part of an ever-escalating and increasingly nasty Twitter fight.

Gaetz triggered the online feud by criticizing state Rep. Chris Latvala, also a Republican, for meeting with Al Sharpton earlier this week. Gaetz pointed out that Sharpton, who has a history of anti-Semitism accusations, has made disparaging comments about a variety of groups — he’s called Jews “diamond merchants,” Greeks “homos” and police officers “pigs,” Gaetz claimed on a Twitter post.

Latvala responded: “And you created a game where members of the FL House got ‘points’ for sleeping with aides, interns, lobbyists, and married legislators. Hope DC is treating you well, Comgressman [sic].”

GOP REP. MATT GAETZ, AL SHARPTON CLASH OVER ANTI-SEMITISM ACCUSATIONS AS POLICE BRUTALITY HEARING GOES OFF RAILS

Latvala appeared to be referencing a report from Politico’s Marc Caputo, who formerly covered Florida politics for The Miami Herald.

“Hey ladies! Source: young male FL Reps have point-system contest for having sex: 1=lobbyist 2=staff 3=other legislator 6=married legislator,” he tweeted in 2013.

Gaetz’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The congressman denied that he created the game in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times earlier this week, saying, he had “no idea what Chris was talking about.”

On Twitter, Gaetz went on to attack Latvala’s father, a former Florida senator who was accused of sexual harassment. The allegations led to a $900,000 settlement between the chamber and Latvala’s accuser early last year, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

MATT GAETZ: PELOSI’S TALKS WITH DEMS WILL BE ‘MORE TENSE THAN A FAMILY MEETING AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE’

“Just because I own you on twitter, don’t confuse me for your daddy when it comes to abusing power for sex,” Gaetz shot back. “Also, I missed the defense of Sharpton in your reply.”

The Gaetz and Latvala families have a history of bad blood, including a messy 2015 fight over redrawing Florida’s Senate districts. The Tampa Bay Times reported at the time that former state Sen. Don Gaetz and former state Sen. Jack Latvala, both Republicans and respectively the fathers of the congressman and state representative, aimed harsh words at each other as the body considered the issue. Specifically, Latvala was blaming Gaetz, a former president of the Florida Senate, for the fact the districts needed to be redrawn because he was at the helm the last time the state did so.

The senior Gaetz was also backing the elder Latvala’s chief opponent for the 2016 Senate presidency, the Times reported.

GAETZ CALLS OUT DEMOCRATS FOR NOT DEFENDING KATIE HILL

In response to the congressman’s attack on his father, the younger Latvala then brought up Gaetz’s 2008 DUI arrest, for which the charges were later dropped: “Have you been drinking tonight? I hope you dont [sic] get behind the wheel. I know you have had a rough few days up there.”

Gaetz responded that he spent his, “day talking to my friend & supporter, the President. You spent yours with Al Sharpton.”

Latvala closed the conversation by defending his meeting with Sharpton, saying, “I’m not afraid to meet with folks with differing opinions than mine. Hence why I posted the picture on Twitter….”

The accusation-filled Twitter spat comes just months after former Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif., resigned following reports of a relationship with members of both her congressional staff and campaign staff, including an allegation she maintained a “throuple” relationship between herself, her husband and one staffer.

Gaetz defended Hill and panned members of Hill’s Democratic Party for not doing the same.

“I don’t know why in the world the left wouldn’t stand up for our colleague, our co-worker, when the only person complaining, the only aggrieved party was Katie Hill’s ex, who was releasing information to try to ruin her life,” he said in an interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
