Griff Jenkins hits streets of sanctuary city with ICE agents

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-09-26-at-1.13.26-PM Griff Jenkins hits streets of sanctuary city with ICE agents Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 443c15fd-34cc-56ff-8bd0-3323edeca153

Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins followed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in Los Angeles, a sanctuary city, as they pursued criminal aliens and detailed the difficulties of making such apprehensions.

“If you had a criminal warrant from a judge on a specific person, you could go forcibly in, but ICE cannot. They’re abiding by the law,” Jenkins explained Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”

At one stop, ICE agents could see the suspect inside, but could not forcibly enter, having to wait for the owner of the property to allow them inside.

“[It] speaks to the difficulty that ICE has in trying to make these apprehensions,” Jenkins said.

An ICE agent told Jenkins that the criminal alien had been convicted of multiple crimes and had a detainer placed on him on August 9, though it was not honored by local law enforcement and he was released.

“It’s been extremely disappointing to us in federal law enforcement,” the ICE agent said.

“He’s definitely a danger to the community. Had that local law enforcement agency just honored our detainer, we would’ve come to pick them up and we wouldn’t be here now,” the ICE agent told Jenkins.

Jenkins said out of 11 total targets, ICE was only able to make one apprehension.

“That is why they are very frustrated when lawmakers particularly help these illegal criminal aliens to evade being taken into custody when it could be done without all of what you just watched and done very peacefully and calmly in the facilities once they’re released.”

Huge ‘well-fed’ snake caught in Australia, dubbed ‘Chonk’

A snake catcher in Australia has snared a huge red-bellied black snake, dubbed “Chonk” because of its sturdy appearance.

Reuters reports that the venomous 6-foot snake was caught by Bryce Lockett at a rifle range on the outskirts of Brisbane. Lockett told the news outlet that the snake slithered out of a creek system where it had been kept “well-fed” thanks to fish and frogs.

“Red-bellied Black Snakes are one of the most frequently encountered snakes on the east coast of Australia, and are responsible for a number of bites every year,” says the Australian Museum, on its website. “Despite the number of bites received every year, very few human deaths have resulted.”

The museum explains that many of the snake’s bite victims “experience only mild or negligible” symptoms, although some end up being hospitalized.

Senate passes stopgap spending bill, delays potential shutdown

Westlake Legal Group 75081d4f-1024-preview-1 Senate passes stopgap spending bill, delays potential shutdown Ronn Blitzer fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/politics/executive/budgets fox news fnc/politics fnc article 7f80e75f-89b2-5eb0-8569-b6b68425397e

The Senate Thursday overwhelmingly approved a stopgap spending bill, avoiding a government shutdown.

The continuing resolution, which passed with a vote of 82 to 15, would maintain congressional spending authorization until Nov. 21, and reauthorize programs that would otherwise have lapsed at the end of September. Congress will be able to use the extra time to try and work out appropriations bills for 2020.

The measure already passed in the House with a 301-123 vote. Three Democratic representatives opposed the bill, and 76 Republicans voted in favor.

President Trump still has to sign the bill into law, but a White House official indicated Monday that he plans on doing so, according to RollCall.

Before the vote, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., proposed an amendment to the bill that would have reduced spending by two percent. That amendment failed after a vote of 73-24.

Paul has long railed against what he believes is unnecessary government spending. In July, he took to the Senate floor to criticize a budget deal that he called the “death of the Tea Party movement in America.”

‘Deserve’s got nothing to do with it’

On the roster: ‘Deserve’s got nothing to do with it’ – I’ll Tell You What: Not so impreachykeenment – Warren slips and swipes Biden on ethics – Issa to challenge Duncan Hunter – *ahem* They got trashed

‘DESERVE’S GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT’
Let’s start with the precondition that we don’t care whether you think the investigation into President Trump’s efforts to get the Ukrainian government to prosecute his political rivals is “THE GREATEST SCAM IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN POLITICS!” grounds for immediate impeachment or something in between.

We care in the sense that we’re sure that you are sincere in your beliefs and we acknowledge your God-given right to feel and think the way you do. What we mean is that in order to discern what might happen next, such feelings are hindrances. It’s hard to clearly consider such outcomes when you think in terms of your own beliefs.

This note, for example, would be a poor source for Major League Baseball forecasting since it is our position that the St. Louis Cardinals not only will win it all but deserve to win it all.

As William Munny told Little Bill Daggett right before he blew his head off with a Spencer repeating rifle on a saloon floor: “Deserve’s got nothing to do with it.”

There are plenty of people who think that Bill Clinton unfairly beat the rap, and even some who still think Richard Nixon got a raw deal. If you flipped through the back pages of enough bibliographies, you might even find some historians with strong feelings about what happened to old Andy Johnson.

Woodrow Wilson was incapacitated by a stroke in his second term, with his wife acting as a kind of regent for his last 17 months in office but Congress took no action. Warren Harding’s administration – in particular his Interior and Justice departments – was a quagmire of corruption, but he was dead and buried before any of it came to light. Lyndon Johnson grievously abused the powers of office for political advantage but he never faced any repercussions.

The rightness or wrongness of a president’s actions are all but immaterial in these matters. Whether the supporters or detractors of the aforementioned men were correct or not was of no consequence.

Now, that’s not to say that the passionate partisan bawling that we’re all now being subjected to won’t have an effect on what eventually does happen.

Studies suggest that home field advantage in sports is not only real but quite possibly the result of referees showing favoritism because of “the social atmosphere in the stadium.” The same is true with allegations of presidential misconduct.      

We’ve said it many times before, but it bears repeating: Impeachment is a political proposition, not a legal one. And the referees here are the undecided or persuadable voters not yet sure what to make of what’s happening.

But even if you want to be part of working the refs – screaming into the orc-filled chasms of Twitter or annoying friends and loved ones with forwarded emails and Facebook posts – you probably still want to be able to think clearly about where it goes from here.

And that’s what we intend to help you do in the days ahead. You have plenty of other options for getting the latest details on what this unnamed source said or what that hearing may or may not have revealed. We’re going to stay focused on the political repercussions because that’s our job.

For the sake of everybody who is going to be out there fighting passionately for their side, whatever it is, we’ll do our best to not pick one.

TIME OUT: ONCE UPON A TIME…
NatGeo: “The brothers Grimm published what would become one of the most influential and famous collections of folklore in the world. Children’s and Household Tales (Kinder und Hausmärchen), later titled Grimm’s Fairy Tales, are childhood-defining stories. The Grimms, however, had curated the collection as an academic anthology for scholars of German culture, not as a collection of bedtime stories for young readers. Amid the political and social turbulence of the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815), as France conquered Germanic lands, Jacob and Wilhelm were driven by nationalism to highlight their homeland and heritage. They were inspired by German Romantic authors and philosophers who believed that the purest forms of culture, those that bonded a community, could be found in stories shared from generation to generation. Storytelling expressed the essence of German culture and recalled the spirit and basic values of its people. By excavating Germany’s oral traditions, the brothers urgently sought to ‘preserve them from vanishing . . . to be forever silent in the tumult of our times.’”

I’LL TELL YOU WHAT: NOT SO IMPREACHYKEENMENT

WARREN SLIPS AND SWIPES BIDEN ON ETHICS
Fox News: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren spotlighted her longstanding calls for the impeachment of President Trump at a campaign event on Wednesday, emphasizing, ‘I hope we do this and I hope we do this quickly.’ But, she also appeared to unintentionally swipe at a rival Democrat vying for the White House – former Vice President Joe Biden – over his family’s role in the Ukraine controversy that led the House of Representatives to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. Taking questions from reporters following a town hall event in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state of New Hampshire, the Massachusetts Democrat was asked if she would allow her vice president’s child to serve on the board of a foreign company if she were president. Warren quickly answered, ‘no.’ When asked why, she said, in a rare moment where she appeared flustered: ‘I don’t know. I have to go back and look at the details.’”

More family woes for Biden – Politico: “Joe Biden’s brother told executives at a healthcare firm that the former vice president’s cancer initiative would promote their business, according to a participant in the conversation, who said the promise came as part of a pitch on behalf of potential investors in the firm. The allegation is the latest of many times Biden’s relatives have invoked the former vice president and his political clout to further their private business dealings. It is the first that involves the Biden Cancer Initiative, a project Joe Biden made the centerpiece of his post-White House life following the death of his son Beau. Biden’s brother, James, made the promise to executives at Florida-based Integrate Oral Care during a phone call on or around November 8, 2018, according to Michael Frey, CEO of Diverse Medical Management, a health-care firm that is suing James Biden. At the time, James Biden’s business partners were pursuing a potential investment in Integrate, according to Frey and court records.”

Sanders gives supporters the stage in Iowa – Des Moines Register: “As a Democratic candidate for president, [Bernie] Sanders frequently pushes his policies pugnaciously, framing them as moral imperatives as much as practical matters. But in his recent four-day swing through Iowa, he balanced his high-volume sermons with stories from his supporters. … Respondents who watched the September televised debate, where Sanders — who approached the debate stage with his typical fervor, but with a hoarse rasp — were more likely to have an unfavorable view of him. The debate-stage Sanders, whose style is described by some, including one of his 2020 rivals, as “yelling”, was less present in his late September Iowa swing, Instead, Sanders often gave up the microphone to let others speak. … At his Iowa events, some of the personal stories are arranged in advance. But others are organic — hearing the stories of others inspires Sanders supporters to tell their own.”

Biden leads the pack in Maryland – Goucher College: “The Goucher College Poll asked Maryland Democratic likely voters who they are currently planning to vote for in the Maryland Democratic presidential primary… Thirty-three percent of Maryland Democratic likely voters say they will vote for Joe Biden and 21 percent for Elizabeth Warren. Ten percent would vote for Bernie Sanders, 6 percent for Kamala Harris, and 5 percent for Pete Buttigieg. All other candidates earn support from 1 percent or fewer of voters. Fifteen percent have no preference or are undecided. …Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College [said,] ‘Democrats in Maryland are divided over whether they want a more moderate or progressive nominee and whether nominating a candidate who can defeat Trump or match their policy preferences is their top priority.’”

ISSA TO CHALLENGE DUNCAN HUNTER
NYT: “Darrell Issa, the former nine-term congressman from California, will try to return to Congress by challenging Representative Duncan Hunter, who was indicted last year, setting up a clash among two Trump allies for one of Republicans’ most endangered seats. Mr. Issa is expected to announce his challenge at a news conference on Thursday morning in the San Diego County district, according to two sources familiar with his decision. He had been publicly mulling for months whether to make a bid to return to Congress, and started an exploratory committee in August. ‘I have received such a tremendous outpouring of encouragement from supporters inside the district, and around the state and across the nation,’ Mr. Issa said in August in a statement posted to the committee’s website. Mr. Issa will likely bill himself to Republicans as a safer alternative than the incumbent.”

Michigan announces new automatic voter registration – MLive: “Michigan took a leap forward into the modern era by announcing new voter registration policies on National Voter Registration Day. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced [Tuesday] that automatic voter registration has officially launched in Michigan and online voter registration will be available following the November 2019 election. “Making voter registration automatic for eligible citizens means more Michigan residents will have access to participating in our democracy,” Benson said in a release. … Michigan joins 17 other states and the District of Columbia in enacting automatic voter registration.”

*AHEM* THEY GOT TRASHED
News24: “A South Korean mayor who dumped a ton of trash on a clean beach to give environmental campaigners something to pick up has said sorry for his deception. Officials trucked in litter and waste that had already been collected from rubbish-strewn coasts, and scattered it all over the pristine sand of southwest Jindo. The following day hundreds of volunteers scoured the shores and bagged up the garbage as part of an event to mark International Coastal Cleanup Day, a global event aimed at countering the scourge of sea-borne waste. ‘We brought in waste styrofoam and other coastal trash gathered from nearby areas so the 600 participants could carry out clean-up activities,’ said Lee Dong-jin, Jindo county mayor, in a statement. His office apologised for causing trouble and said the event was meant to ‘raise awareness about the seriousness of coastal waste.’”

Bryce Harper’s wife reveals Nationals fans were using their infant son in ‘classless’ trash-talking

Bryce Harper on Wednesday night took issue with Washington Nationals fans heckling him in the latter stages of the game and the Philadelphia Phillies star’s wife echoed his statements a day later.

Kayla Harper tweeted Thursday that Nationals fans were bringing their 1-month-old son into the trash-talking and that’s what upset her and her husband.

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES’ BRYCE HARPER TAKES ISSUE WITH HECKLING FANS: ‘IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT’

“When you bring his son or family into it, yes you’re crossing a line,” she tweeted. “Stick to your overused overrated and Harper sucks chants if you’re really that loser that goes to a game to heckle someone. Phillies fans might boo him but they don’t bring his 4 week old son into it. Classless”

Bryce Harper, who played for the Nationals from 2012 to 2018 before signing with the Phillies in the offseason, expressed his outrage over the fans after his loss in Washington on Wednesday. However, he didn’t go into what they were saying.

“They were fine all game, talking about myself and things like that,” Harper told reporters. “I get it everywhere I go. That’s nothing new. But the last two innings, it’s just not right. It’s not right.”

He added that he was eager to get back to Philadelphia.

“I’ve got 60,000 fans up in Philly that appreciate me as a player, appreciate me as an individual and my family, as well,” he said. “I owe a lot to those people up there in Philly because they show up for me every single night and they’re there to cheer us on and boo us and keep us going as a team and as individuals as well.”

The couple welcomed their first child, Krew Aron Harper, on Aug. 23.

NASA’s planet hunter has found a ‘star-shredding’ black hole

A ‘star-shredding’ black hole has been spotted for the first time by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS).

“TESS data let us see exactly when this destructive event, named ASASSN-19bt, started to get brighter, which we’ve never been able to do before,” said Thomas Holoien, a Carnegie Fellow at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, Calif., in a statement.

The black hole that generated ASASSN-19bt is at the center of a galaxy located 375-million light-years away. A light-year, which measures distance in space, equals 6 trillion miles.

The research is published in the Astrophysical Journal.

Scientists have been gaining plenty of new insight into black holes. In a separate project, astronomers recently announced that they have spotted “dramatic” black holes in six galaxies, which could shed new light on galactic evolution.

Experts also recently announced that a black hole swallowing a neutron star has likely been detected for the first time.

Denver Broncos’ Diontae Spencer on receiving end of jokes after odd tweet

Denver Broncos returner Diontae Spencer attempted to hype himself on social media Tuesday after his speed was revealed during a kickoff return against the Green Bay Packers.

Sanders apparently ran more than 20 mph during a 60-yard kick return. To hype himself up, Sanders attempted to tweet “GOD SPEED” with the picture of his quickness. However, he used a lightning bolt emoji for an “s” and the tweet came out as “GOD PEED” instead.

UCLA receives $20 million to study ‘practice of kindness’

Kindness is costly.

The University of California, Los Angeles was given $20 million to study kindness and mindfulness thanks to a gift from philanthropists, Jennifer and Matthew C. Harris, of the Bendari Foundation, which helped establish the UCLA Bedari Kindness Insitute.

“Universities should always be places where we teach students to reach across lines of difference and treat one another with empathy and respect — even when we deeply disagree,” UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said in a statement. “The UCLA Bedari Kindness Institute will bring the best thinking to this vital issue and, I think, will allow us to have a real social impact on future generations.”

The institute, housed in the division of social sciences, will support research on understanding kindness through evolutionary, biological, psychological, economic, cultural and sociological perspectives. The goal is to use kindness as an “antidote” to “current world politics, violence, and strife,” according to Darnell Hunt, dean of the UCLA division of social sciences.

The private family foundation funding the new initiative aims “to enable significant cultural shifts in the fields of health and wellness, community displacement and environmental conservation.”

Matthew Harris, the foundation’s co-founder and a 1984 UCLA graduate, said, “Much research is needed to understand why kindness can be so scarce in the modern world. As we seek…to bridge the divide between science and spirituality…we hope to educate and empower more and more people in the practice of kindness.”

The new institute “will provide seed funding for research projects that examine the social and physical mechanics of kindness and how kindness might be harnessed to create more humane societies. It also will provide mindfulness-awareness training to students, faculty and staff and in underserved Los Angeles communities, and host an annual conference at which presenters will examine new discoveries in kindness research, among other activities.”

Pelosi accuses White House of ‘cover-up’ over Ukraine call

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., responded Thursday to allegations that the Trump White House sought to limit access to the written record of a now-controversial call between the president and Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky by calling it “a cover-up” — suggesting the Democratic caucus will plow ahead with its impeachment inquiry.

Pelosi spoke to reporters after the release of a whistleblower complaint regarding Trump’s July call with Zelensky. The complaint said officials tried to “lock down” records of the call, in which Trump sought Ukraine’s help investigating the Biden family.

“This is a cover up,” Pelosi said. “Here we are with another example of the disregard for the Constitution by the president.”

READ THE WHISTLEBLOWER’S COMPLAINT

Pelosi added: “When you have a system for electronic storage that is specifically not used and you have something that is politically helpful for the president and you hide it someplace else, that is a cover-up.”

During a separate hearing on Capitol Hill, however, Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire cautioned against jumping to conclusions on allegations of a “cover-up” and more, noting the complaint was not based on direct knowledge.

“This is second-hand information from a whistleblower,” Maguire said regarding the “cover-up” claim.

Pelosi’s comments come as the unnamed whistleblower’s complaints were made public, two days after she announced that the House was opening a formal impeachment inquiry over the issue.

The complaint alleges Trump abused the power of his office to “solicit interference from a foreign country” in next year’s U.S. election.

On the call, Trump allegedly pushed Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Joe Biden has acknowledged that, when he was vice president, he successfully pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, while Shokin was investigating the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings — where Hunter Biden was on the board. Shokin himself had separately been accused of corruption.

Trump has denied doing anything wrong and says the record of the call, which was released publicly on Wednesday, vindicates him of any wrongdoing.

“The president thinks this proves his innocence, which only shows how much he doesn’t understand right from wrong,” Pelosi said.

The House speaker has for months brushed off calls from her party’s more liberal members to open impeachment proceedings against Trump, but Thursday she bristled at the assertion that she had changed her mind about going forward.

“We wanted to have a fuller understanding of the facts,” she said. “I didn’t change my mind.”

“The president of the United States and his actions with a telephone call with another head of state betrayed his oath of office,” Pelosi added. “We have to have an inquiry to further the facts.”

As of Wednesday, a majority of House members have publicly supported impeachment proceedings against Trump, with 217 Democrats and independent Rep. Justin Amash all being in favor of opening the inquiry into the president.

One House member not supporting the impeachment push is House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who in his weekly press briefing said that Pelosi opened the inquiry without any evidence against Trump.

“She opened impeachment inquiry without even seeing one word of evidence,” He said. “[E]ven her own members questioned that she moved too soon. And when the evidence was released the Democrats, and many of the media, twisted it to what they wanted to believe.”

Before the recent scandal involving the phone call with the Ukrainian president, numerous Democrats had pushed impeachment proceedings or even outright impeachment – mostly over the results of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump campaign links to Russia and whether Trump attempted to obstruct the probe.

That probe did not reach a conclusion on the obstruction issue and did not find evidence of collusion. Pelosi’s statement earlier in the week marks the first time Democratic Party leadership has gotten behind the impeachment effort.
