Jersey City mayor says kosher market shooting was ‘targeted,’ some frustrated with few details

Residents and the Jewish community in Jersey City are asking for clarification after the city’s mayor tweeted late Tuesday that two gunmen “targeted” the kosher market where they killed three people earlier in the afternoon but did not elaborate.

A New Jersey police officer who was among a total of six people killed in the shootout that brought the city to a standstill.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted, “Based on our initial investigation (which is ongoing) we now believe the active shooters targeted the location they attacked. Due to an excess of caution the community may see additional police resources in the days/weeks ahead. We have no indication there are any further threats.”

He didn’t clarify, however, if the incident is being investigated as an anti-Semitic hate crime, sparking calls for further explanation.

JERSEY CITY GUN BATTLE LEAVES 6 DEAD, INCLUDING POLICE OFFICER

“what do you mean? That the location the gunmen fled to, the kosher supermarket, was chosen with anti-Semitic intent … ?” Laura E. Adkins, opinion editor for the Jewish Telegraph Agency, tweeted in response. “That there is an active anti-Semitic hate crime investigation? Something else?”

Another commented that his “non-committal” statement was not helpful. “WHO were the JC shooters, WHAT was their motive, WHERE are they from, WHY did they do what they did, and HOW did this all go down?” they wrote.

New York State Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, who represents Brooklyn, also posted about Fulop’s statement.

“Mayor @StevenFulop, with all due respect, if you believe that the Jewish community was “TARGETED” you must say it CLEARLY and MAKE SURE your constituents are protected,” Eichenstein tweeted.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that Fulop “has asserted that today’s incident was a deliberate attack targeting the Jewish community.”

“Although there is no credible or specific threat directed against New York City, I have directed the NYPD to assume a state of high alert,” he wrote. “Tonight, NYPD assets are being redeployed to protect key locations in the Jewish community. Tomorrow, we will announce additional measures.”

The shooting rampage started when the suspects killed veteran Jersey City Police Detective Joseph Seals in a Jersey City cemetery before they moved to the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket a few blocks away where a shootout with police left three victims and the suspects dead.

“We have been in close contact with the Jewish community in #JerseyCity to help where we can,” Fulop posted earlier in a retweet from Councilman Chaim Deutsch, chair of New York City Council’s Jewish caucus.

“While we work through details/investigation of today’s incident I know the entire Jersey City community stands together with the Jewish Community during these challenging times,” Fulop wrote.

The shooters were reportedly armed with high-powered rifles.

Alyssa Milano pulls out of Andrew Yang fundraiser amid sexual misconduct allegations against staffer

Alyssa Milano pulled out of an upcoming fundraiser in Los Angeles for Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang on Tuesday over what she described as the campaign’s lack of urgency regarding sexual misconduct allegations against a Yang campaign staffer.

Milano – an actress, activist and #MeToo advocate – said on Twitter on Tuesday that she “made the difficult decision” to withdraw from a “Holiday Brunch” fundraiser for Yang “due to repeated allegations of sexual misconduct against a campaign staffer by a campaign staffer which were not appropriately addressed.”

Fellow actress Teri Hatcher and the candidate’s wife Evelyn Yang were also scheduled to host the event, planned for Dec. 21.

ANDREW YANG QUALIFIES FOR NEXT DEBATE AFTER RELEASE OF NEW POLL

“While I have not endorsed any candidate, I do believe Andrew Yang is a good man with progressive, smart, interesting ideas,” Milano tweeted. “And to be clear, NO allegations have been made against him personally. But this issue is too important and too prevalent. The buck stops at the top.

“Part of fixing the issue of sexual harassment in our culture is living our values and holding ourselves and the people we admire accountable. I wish Andrew, his family and his campaign well, and encourage him to immediately and publicly remedy this issue,” she said.

Tickets for the brunch range from $100 to $5,600. The event is to feature discussion over Yang’s campaign promise of the Freedom Dividend — a universal basic income of $1,000 per month, $12,000 a year, for every American adult over age 18.

In response, Yang’s campaign issued a statement Tuesday evening:

“We take these matters seriously, and creating a safe environment for anyone participating in any activity with the campaign is an utmost priority. To those ends, we have initiated prompt action to evaluate these allegations and will take all necessary steps to ensure that we foster a work environment that is in accordance with our values.”

The news comes the same day Yang qualified to take the stage at next week’s sixth Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles. The first-time candidate and tech-entrepreneur stood at 4 percent in a new national poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University, pushing him over the threshold to take the stage at the Dec. 19 showdown.

After Trump’s 9th Circuit pick confirmed, Biden warns of 2nd term ‘death grip’ on federal courts: report

Westlake Legal Group biden After Trump's 9th Circuit pick confirmed, Biden warns of 2nd term ‘death grip’ on federal courts: report fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox-news/politics/judiciary fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc Dom Calicchio article 187eb656-aa29-5604-8222-fa39edaa6554

While Democrats in Congress have been conducting impeachment hearings in recent weeks, President Trump has been filling judicial vacancies in the federal court system at a rapid clip – and that appears to have potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden worried.

“Look at how the federal court system is changing,” Biden told a group in Las Vegas on Tuesday night, according to a reporter for ABC News. “Four more years of the same kind of appointments, you’re going to see a court system that is fundamentally, for two generations, locked in a way that’s a death grip that does not make any sense.

“It’s as if Robert Bork would be the chief justice, God rest his soul,” Biden added, referring to the Ronald Reagan Supreme Court nominee whose appointment Democrats blocked in 1987. Bork died in 2012 at age 85.

TRUMP NOMINATES WAVE OF CALIFORNIA JUDGES, IN FRESH BID TO RESHAPE COURTS

In a 53-40 vote Tuesday, the U.S. Senate confirmed Trump appointee Patrick Bumatay, a San Diego federal prosecutor, to a seat on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, making him the 49th circuit appointee to be confirmed under the Trump administration, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Trump was able to get Bumatay confirmed to the San Francisco-based court despite opposition to the nomination from California’s two Democratic U.S. senators, Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.

Bumatay, 41, a son of Filipino immigrants, is openly gay and is raising twin daughters with his husband, the newspaper reported.

The Senate is expected to vote on another 9th Circuit nominee — Lawrence Van Dyke, a former solicitor general for Nevada – on Wednesday, potentially giving Trump another appointee on the traditionally liberal-leaning court, the Union-Tribune reported.

TRUMP-SHAPED 9TH CIRCUIT HANDS WHITE HOUSE MAJOR WIN ON ASYLUM POLICY

When the Senate confirmed a Trump pick for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in late November, that court became the third to shift to a Republican-appointed majority since the president took office in January 2017.

In an 80-15 vote, the Senate confirmed Barbara Lagoa to the 11th Circuit seat previously held by Judge Stanley Marcus, a Clinton appointee who sat on the appeals court that handles cases from Florida, Georgia and Alabama since 1997.

Lagoa, the first Cuban-American woman confirmed to the 11th Circuit, tilted that court, which was previously split between six Republican appointees and six Democratic appointees, to a GOP-appointed majority.

Trump’s nominees alone now hold five of the 12 seats on the 11th Circuit.

During the previous week, confirmation of Steven Menashi, Trump’s pick for the 2nd Circuit, flipped that court to a Republican majority.

Trump has also flipped the 3rd Circuit.

Lagoa was Trump’s 48th nominee confirmed to a circuit court seat, giving the president double the number of circuit judges then-President Barack Obama had gotten through by the same point in his presidency, according to a count by the Heritage Foundation.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plans to vote against Pelosi drug pricing bill without changes

Westlake Legal Group AP19191164723269 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plans to vote against Pelosi drug pricing bill without changes fox-news/politics fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 40cc85ae-77a0-5487-a313-3ed6f44ea98d

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D. N.Y., said Tuesday she plans to vote against a bill put forward by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that would allow the government to negotiate lower prices on prescription drugs.

Ocasio-Cortez and other liberal lawmakers have been urging Pelosi for months to make the bill more progressive and have threatened to delay the bill without the changes, including making negotiated drug prices available to those without insurance, Politico reported.

AOC INVOKES DOG BREEDING PRACTICES IN DEBATE ABOUT PAID FAMILY LEAVE

“As the bill stands, she plans on voting no,” an Ocasio-Cortez spokesperson said, according to CNBC.

The House is expected to vote on the bill this week.

“Make my day,” moderate Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., said over the potential delay, according to Politico. “I think the speaker understands the politics better than some of our progressive colleagues.”

House leaders have resisted the changes over fears of losing moderates, especially in vulnerable districts critical to keeping a Democratic majority, Politico reported.

Mitch McConnell likely won’t take up the bill in the Senate and President Trump has planned to veto it if it passes through Congress.

In a statement, Trump said the bill would “likely undermine access to lifesaving medicines.”

The Congressional Budget Office said the bill likely would save Medicare $345 billion over a decade, CNBC reported.

Gregg Jarrett: Adam Schiff is ‘guilty of abuse of power himself’

Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff appears to be guilty of the same offense he claims President Trump has committed.

In an interview Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle,” Jarrett said Schiff is ignoring established legal precedent by depriving Trump and the Republican Party of due process.

Schiff, D-Calif., did not allow the Republicans to call witnesses before his committee while they considered impeachment, and has not allowed the GOP to speak with the Ukraine whistleblower, Jarrett noted.

“Schiff, in particular, is guilty of abuse of power himself because he is defying the dictates of the federal courts that have said due process applies to congressional investigations — which would include impeachment,” he said.

TRUMP CALLS ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ‘WEAK’

Jarrett said Schiff “cut off cross-examination” during the hearings and has “essentially railroaded” the impeachment measures through Congress.

Later in the interview, Jarrett told host Laura Ingraham that Schiff appears to have “colluded” with the whistleblower to “invent a pretext” for impeaching Trump.

He said Republicans now appear reluctant to call the Bidens in any prospective Senate impeachment trial but added that Schiff should “account for his own actions and how [the impeachment process] all began.”

In his first public remarks since Democrats formally announced articles of impeachment against him, Trump called the two charges leveled against him “weak” and said the only reason Democrats agreed to a modified North American trade deal was because of impeachment.

Speaking on the White House lawn before departing for a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, Trump called it a “disgrace” to “make impeachment out of nothing,” while touting both the strength of the economy and recent polling that showed him ahead of his Democratic rivals in the 2020 presidential race.

Trump’s comments came hours after House Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against the president on Tuesday morning, saying that his actions toward Ukraine “betrayed the nation.” The specific charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Sarah Sanders: ‘This whole thing has been a complete and utter sham from the beginning’

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed the Russia investigation and the Ukraine scandal Tuesday, saying Democrats continue to “lose” due to their push to impeach the president.

“I think what we saw this week is further indication that this whole thing has been a complete and utter sham from the beginning,” Sanders said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “They’re doubling down and they’re getting it wrong again every single time they try to nail this president on something, whether it’s the sham Russia hoax or now is the sham Ukraine scandal, they lose.”

DEMOCRATS UNVEIL IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES, AS WHITE HOUSE SLAMS ‘BASELESS AND PARTISAN’ EFFORT

Sanders said that Democrats have continued to push the Russia investigation and Ukraine because they were surprised Trump won the presidency.

“I think they had convinced themselves that it was real because they had to validate why they had been so wrong,” Sanders said. “I think part of the kind of media class was so taken by surprise that Donald Trump became president that they had no other explanation other than there must have been some sort of scandal around it.”

Speaking on the White House lawn before departing for a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, Trump called it a “disgrace” to “make impeachment out of nothing,” while touting both the strength of the economy and recent polling that showed him ahead of his Democratic rivals in the 2020 presidential race.

Sanders hypothesized what the president could have accomplished had Democrats not chose to hinder him.

“Just think how much more the president could have gotten done if they hadn’t been slamming every single moment, this Russia scandal down America’s throat,” Sanders said.

Laura Ingraham: Democrats ‘are guilty of much of what they accuse Trump of doing’

Laura Ingraham spent Tuesday asking the hypothetical question,”What if the Congressional leaders could be impeached?”

Ingraham said it would be “fun” to “proceed as if Congress is not immune from impeachment.” The host of “The Ingraham Angle” brought up her hypothetical charges against Democrats.

NUNES LOOKS AT LEGAL OPTIONS AFTER SCHIFF RELEASES PHONE RECORDS IN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

“So let’s say the GOP wins back the House next November and the tables are turned. What articles of impeachment could Schiff and the gang be facing?” Ingraham asked, before accusing Democrats of “abuse of power.”

“House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff is the one who abused power. Now, his office met with the whistleblower in August,” Ingraham said. “He didn’t reveal this to anyone until he was caught, basically. And he still hasn’t answered questions about what he knew and when he knew it.”

Ingraham also charged Schiff with obstruction, “He can obstruct Congress by refusing to give Republicans their rights to call witnesses, including the whistleblower Adam Schiff, yes, guilty as charged.”

Ingraham then took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for delaying any action on the USMCA agreement and other infrastructure legislation.

“Pelosi is doing harm to the country right now by withholding support for infrastructure and prescription drug bill,” Ingraham said. “The bill to lower prices of prescription drugs affecting all of us. Her party campaigned on both of those issues again. She’s doing this abusing her power merely for her own political benefit.”

The host accused Democrats of being hypocrites.

“Well, you see the Democrats, as usual, are guilty of much of what they accuse Trump of doing,” Ingraham said. “A rank abuse of power lying and with the added bonus of invasion of privacy, obstruction of Congress. I mean, think about it? The possibilities are endless.”

Gerrit Cole and New York Yankees agree to $324 million contract: report

Gerrit Cole, the star pitcher who helped the Houston Astros beat the Yankees in a six-game AL Championship Series, has agreed to a  $324 million, nine-year contract with the Bronx Bombers, the Associated Press, citing an unnamed source, reported.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced. The Yankees and Cole did not mention anything on Twitter after the AP’s report.

The Yankees were trying to land Cole to join a young core group that includes Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres and Gary Sánchez. The Los Angeles Angels and Dodgers, near Cole’s home, were also reportedly interested.

“Obviously, when you are talking about a player at the level of Gerrit Cole, in a lot of ways that’s a game-changing type talent,” Aaron Boone, the Yankee manager, said.

Cole, the biggest prize of the free agent market, surpassed the $245 million, seven-year contract Stephen Strasburg finalized with the Washington Nationals on Monday for most total money for a pitcher and for his $36 million average annual value. Agent Scott Boras negotiated both deals.

A tennis racket Serena Williams famously smashed during an argument with the chair umpire before her loss in last year’s U.S. Open to Naomi Osaka has sold at auction for $20,910, according to Goldin Auctions.

Williams threw the racket after the umpire ruled she had received illegal coaching, which gave her a second violation. She incurred a third violation for verbal abuse when she called the umpire a “thief,” insisting she has never cheated in her life.

SERENA WILLIAMS FINED $10,000 FOR REPORTEDLY DAMAGING COURT AHEAD OF WIMBLEDON

Williams was fined $17,000 for the violations, which included $3,000 for breaking her racket.

After her loss to Osaka, Williams gave the smashed racket to ball boy Justin Arrington-Holmes who sold it for a mere $500, The New York Times reported.

“Looking back I wish I’d had someone help me with the process,” Holmes told The Times. “I was not familiar with how any of this works. I just wanted to get rid of it.”

Jesse Owens’ 1936 Berlin Olympic gold medal also sold at the auction for $615,000.

Williams was fined $10,000 this year for damaging a Wimbledon practice court when she threw her racket before the tournament started.
