Shooting was accident, suspect says: ‘If I intended to ever use the gun, I would never have missed’

A suspect whose gun went off during a struggle with a motel security guard claims the shooting was an accident, according to reports.

“If I intended to ever use the gun, I would never have missed the target,” Allison Nicole Daughtrey, 34, told police, according to charging documents.

The Baltimore Sun reported that police responded to the motel in Towson, Md., where Daughtrey and her girlfriend had allegedly been fighting Monday afternoon.

But according to Baltimore’s WJZ-TV, the charging documents indicate the women claim they weren’t fighting but engaged in “loud sex.”

The altercation with the security guard began when the guard tried to get the women – and an unspecified number of children staying with them — to leave the property, the Sun reported.

As officers were overseeing the pair packing their belongings and preparing to exit the motel, a gunshot rang out – and a motel employee told police the security guard was restraining the shooter.

The guard later told police Daughtrey had pulled out a handgun and fired during the struggle, in which she also allegedly bit his right arm.

The bullet only damaged a wall and curtains inside the motel lobby, but the guard was treated for a hand injury, according to the newspaper.

Daughtrey reportedly told police the guard struck her in the face, so she grabbed her handbag to swing it at him, but the gun fell out and fired.

Hillary Clinton gets brutally mocked for reading printouts of her own emails at art exhibit

Many on social media had some fun at the expense of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after pictures emerged from her visit to an art exhibit in Venice inspired by her tenure in office.

At the Venetian Teatro Italia, there’s an exhibit titled, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.”  It is a replica of the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk and over 60,000 pages of Clinton’s emails.

According to Kenneth Goldsmith, the artist behind the exhibit, Clinton “spent an hour” reading her own emails and shared pictures of her visit.

Clinton reportedly told local media that the exhibit “is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails.”

The failed 2016 presidential candidate was widely mocked on Twitter.

“Hillary should fire all of her advisors and anyone else who said this was a good idea,” syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg reacted.

Some particularly had fun with the photo she took behind the Resolute Desk and compared it to cartoons and films.

Others, however, also invoked the “30,000” emails that Clinton had erased amid her email controversy.

Andrew Yang challenges Ted Cruz to basketball, Cruz accepts: ‘Bring it’

It appears that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., has a new challenger on the basketball court: 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

It began on Wednesday after footage of Yang shooting hoops ahead of Thursday’s Democratic debate went viral and a Fox News producer suggested a match between the entrepreneur and the GOP lawmaker.

Cruz was quick to dismiss the idea.

“Sorry. You gotta poll 5% or more to play on my court,” Cruz reacted.

Yang, however, responded by sharing the results of a recent Hill/Harris X poll that shows him polling at five percent.

“Ted I would be delighted to beat you in basketball,” the presidential hopeful shot back.

“Bring it,” Cruz told Yang. “4 on 4, you plus three of your paid staffers vs me and three of my paid staffers (no outside ringers). Say, this Friday afternoon in Houston? The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice? Game?”

This isn’t the first time Cruz was challenged to a game of basketball by someone from across the aisle. In 2018, the Texas senator faced off against late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and beat him 11-9.

Husband-wife Arizona murder suspects nabbed after three-week manhunt; had ‘overpowered’ guards in Utah: report

Westlake Legal Group mugs-Tucson-Police-Dept Husband-wife Arizona murder suspects nabbed after three-week manhunt; had 'overpowered' guards in Utah: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/arizona fox-news/us/crime/manhunt fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc f2567e73-393c-566e-a5a1-28b952ae1a85 Danielle Wallace article

A married couple wanted for murder in Arizona and on the run for three weeks after allegedly overpowering guards in Utah during their extradition, were captured Wednesday, authorities said.

Blane Barksdale, 56, and Susan Barksdale, 59, were arrested and taken into custody without incident, the U.S. Marshals Service announced. The Navajo County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that it assisted in the arrests but did not say where the couple was found.

Both agencies plan to hold a joint news conference in Phoenix at 11 a.m. Thursday to provide further details about the couple’s capture, Tucson’s KOLD-TV reported.

FUGITIVE COUPLE MAY BE GETTING HELP FROM WHITE SUPREMACISTS, POLICE SAY

The couple were being transported from Henrietta, N.Y., to Pima County, Ariz., Aug. 26 when they somehow “overpowered two security officers” in Blanding, Utah, using an unspecified “medical rouse.”

They allegedly kidnapped the two guards and third inmate, driving a privately operated prison transport vehicle to Vernon, Ariz., where they obtained a Red GMC Sierra pickup from an acquaintance, KOLD-TV reported. They then abandoned the van with the three locked inside and somehow evaded a sweeping manhunt conducted by multiple agencies, including the FBI, the report said.

Authorities previously said they believe couple was receiving help — from biker gangs or white supremacist groups — to elude capture. On Monday, Blane Barksdale was placed on the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted List, and the reward for information leading to his arrest increased to $25,000, The Arizona Republic reported. The reward for information leading to Susan Barksdale’s arrest was set at $10,000.

The suspects were initially arrested May 24 in upstate New York and charged with first-degree murder, burglary, arson and auto theft in connection with the disappearance of Frank Bligh, 72, who was reported missing following the April 16 fire and explosion at his Tucson home.

Bligh’s car was found abandoned the day after the fire. While his body has not been found, investigators say evidence in the car indicated he was likely dead. The Barksdales were later identified as suspects. Investigators believe more than 100 firearms were stolen from the home, KOLD-TV reported. Only 30 have been recovered.

Marianne Williamson caught on a hot mic saying ‘conservatives are nicer’ to her than the left

Spiritual guru and 2020 Democratic candidate Marianne Williamson was caught on a hot mic saying conservatives are ‘nicer’ to her than the left.

In an audio recording released from an interview last week, Williamson sounded off on the hostility she has faced from the political left.

“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me?… It’s such a bizarre world,” Williamson said. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I’m a serious lefty, but they’re so… I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right, they are.”

After expressing frustration about the release of the clip, Williamson clarified that it was how she felt on “that day” and expected that she knew running for president wouldn’t be a “walk in the park.” She added how Republicans “don’t have to be attacking” her during a Democratic primary while other Democrats “are working for other candidates.”

Last week, Williamson said in an interview she didn’t think that “the left was so mean” until she ran for president. In August, she claimed that “very powerful forces” within the Democratic Party were trying to prevent her from appearing on the debate stage.

She also slammed Democrats for being “condescending” to people of faith after making a tweet suggesting that prayer intervened in Hurricane Dorian’s impact on the U.S.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: San Francisco violates NRA’s freedom of speech under Constitution

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6085349602001_6085344658001-vs Judge Andrew Napolitano: San Francisco violates NRA’s freedom of speech under Constitution fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/second-amendment fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/bill-of-rights fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/san-francisco fox-news/politics/elections/first-amendment fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc Creators Syndicate article Andrew Napolitano 31db64d0-e435-54fb-aa39-e313b084755d

In 1791, when Rep. James Madison was drafting the first 10 amendments to the Constitution — which would become known as the Bill of Rights – he insisted that the most prominent amendment among them restrain the government from interfering with the freedom of speech.

After various versions of the First Amendment had been drafted and debated, the committee that he chaired settled on the iconic language: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.”

Madison insisted upon referring to speech as the freedom of speech, not for linguistic or stylistic reasons, but to reflect its pre-political existence. Stated differently, according to Madison – who drafted the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights – because the freedom of speech preexisted the government, it does not have its origins in government. The use of the article “the” reflects that preexistence.

NRA SUES SAN FRANCISCO OVER ‘DOMESTIC TERROR ORGANIZATION’ DECLARATION

The First Amendment also reflects the framers’ collective belief that the freedom of speech is a natural right. It has its origins in our human nature. We all yearn to speak free from restraint, and we all understand that we can use our speech to express any idea we want to express without fear or hesitation. Those yearnings and understandings are universal – hence, natural.

More from Opinion

The framers wrote the First Amendment to codify negative rights. That is, the First Amendment recognizes the existence of the freedom of speech for every person, and it negates the ability and the power of Congress – after the Civil War amendments, of all governments – to infringe upon it. The First Amendment does not command Congress to grant the freedom of speech (it is not Congress’ to grant); rather, it commands that Congress shall not interfere with it.

Nearly all of the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights are negative rights. Their essence is not a grant of liberty. Their essence is a restraint on the government from interfering with preexisting liberty.

I offer this brief understanding of the freedom of speech in our constitutional form of government as an introduction to a discussion of the dangers of government exercising free speech. We know from the plain language in and the history of the First Amendment that all persons have the freedom of speech. But what about the government? Does government have the freedom of speech?

That is not an academic question. The short answer to it is: Under the theory of the Declaration of Independence – that our rights come to us from the Creator and are inalienable – and consistent with Madison’s understanding, the government has no freedom of speech.

Government only can exercise the powers we have given it. Nowhere in the Constitution did the states give such powers to the feds, and nowhere did the people give such powers to the states. We don’t elect government to identify ideas it loves or hates. We elect it to protect our freedoms.

Stated differently, who cares what the government thinks?

In San Francisco, one needs to care. The city government there has condemned the National Rifle Association, labeled it a domestic terrorist organization and prohibited city agencies from interacting with it or with those with whom it interacts, because of the NRA’s robust defense of the Second Amendment. Can any government in America constitutionally do that? In a word: No.

Surely, the folks who work in government have the same free speech rights as do the rest of us, and they are free to exercise them. However, they cannot commandeer the government – local, state or federal – and use it as an instrument to advance their own personal free speech. Why not? Because when the government speaks, it chills the rights of others to speak who disagree with it, and that chilling constitutes the very infringement that the First Amendment was written to prohibit.

Chilling occurs when the government makes it easier for some to speak freely or more difficult for others to do so. Government does that when it expresses favoritism or hatred in the marketplace of ideas.

Whatever one thinks of the NRA, the government has no business condemning it. Can it condemn McDonald’s as a health menace for selling fatty foods? Can it condemn pro-life groups as domestic terrorists for publicly attempting to dissuade young women from having abortions? Can it condemn young socialists for demanding confiscation and redistribution of property? Can it condemn the free press as a public enemy when the press criticizes it?

The answer to all these hypotheticals (the last is not so hypothetical today) is: No. The First Amendment was written to keep the government out of the business of influencing the free market of ideas.

The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to encourage and foment open, wide, robust, unbridled speech about the government. Speech without fear or favor from the government. Speech without government interference. Speech without government challenge or reward.

In the most liberal city in America – where free speech was once sacrosanct – it is now subject to official government disapproval. That is, until the courts do their job of protecting the free speech of an unpopular minority so that individuals can decide for themselves what to hear and believe, free from government interference.

In America, thanks to the First Amendment, no one should hesitate to express any opinion publicly for fear of incurring the wrath of the government. And no government can punish or isolate any person or group because of their exercise of the freedom of speech. Any government officials not faithful to those first principles have violated their oaths to uphold the Constitution and are unworthy of holding public office.

El Paso ‘hero’ arrested by Secret Service before meeting Trump at White House: report

Westlake Legal Group chris-grant-cnn-interview El Paso 'hero' arrested by Secret Service before meeting Trump at White House: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/second-amendment fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 67aef58d-8c05-5031-a73c-0d38e3541160

A Texas man touted as a hero following last month’s mass shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, was detained by Secret Service agents upon his arrival at the White House on Monday due to an outstanding criminal warrant, according to a report.

And now authorities say Chris Grant, 50, may have lied about his supposedly heroic deeds amid gunfire that left 22 people dead and about two dozen more wounded.

Grant had traveled to Washington to be honored by President Trump along with first responders and others to be commended for their responses to recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. The Dayton shooting left 10 people dead and 27 wounded.

TRUMP AWARDS MEDAL OF VALOR TO DAYTON POLICE OFFICERS, COMMENDATIONS TO EL PASO FIRST RESPONDERS

Shot in ribs, kidney

Grant was hospitalized last month after being shot in the ribs and a kidney in the Aug. 3 rampage. He said in a series of interviews with major news outlets that he was wounded when he threw soda bottles at the gunman to distract him while other shoppers fled. A GoFundMe page raised nearly $17,000 on his behalf.

But El Paso police spokesman Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told the Washington Examiner that Grant’s “statements were inconsistent with what was revealed on video.” He said Grant was visible in the footage but did not reveal what his actions were.

“Nobody bothered to check with us,” El Paso police spokesman Sgt. Enrique Carrillo told the Examiner. “They would have been informed, as I am telling you now, that our detectives reviewed hours of video and his actions did not match his account.”

“Nobody bothered to check with us. They would have been informed, as I am telling you now, that our detectives reviewed hours of video and his actions did not match his account.”

— Sgt. Enrique Carrillo, El Paso police spokesman

President Trump was to present Grant, along with four other civilians, a Heroic Commendation in a White House ceremony Monday. During that same event, Trump presented the nation’s highest award for public safety to six Dayton police officers who responded to the mass shooting in that city.

Mother accepts certificate 

Grant was not present at the ceremony. He was arrested beforehand by the Secret Service for being a “fugitive from justice,” according to a spokesperson for the Washington Metropolitan Police Department. His mother, Minnie Grant, 82, accepted a signed certificate in his place, as the president spoke about Grant’s account of what transpired during the shooting.

As part of his remarks in the White House’s East Room, Trump said: “Chris grabbed — listen to this — soda bottles and anything else in front of him, and began hurling them at the gunman, distracting him from the other shoppers and causing the shooter to turn toward Chris and fire at Chris, whereby Chris suffered two serious gunshot wounds. But he is recovering well, and we wish him the best. His family is here. So please thank Chris for us, please.”

A Secret Service spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that a White House visitor with an arrest warrant was temporarily detained by U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers on Monday. “It was subsequently determined that while the arrest warrant was still active, the agency that issued the warrant would not extradite, at which time the individual was released from Secret Service custody,” the spokesperson said. 

It was not clear what Grant was charged with related to Monday’s arrest. Texas court records show he has a lengthy criminal history involving theft and evading arrest, the Washington Examiner reported. He was given an eight-month prison sentence in March after pleading guilty to car theft. He received an 18-month sentence in 2016 after pleading guilty to stealing televisions from a department store in Richardson, Texas. He also pleaded guilty to evading arrest in Collins County that same year.

In an interview from his hospital bed last month, Grant recounted his version of what went down between him and the gunman to CNN host Chris Cuomo.

“To deter him, I started just chucking bottles, I just started throwing bottles, random bottles at him,” Grant said. “And I’m not a baseball player, so one went this way, one went that way. And then one went right towards him and then that’s when he saw me. … When I got hit, it was like somebody put a hand grenade in my back and pulled the pin.”

Grant also mentioned in a separate interview that he saw the gunman allow white and black shoppers leave the store to escape his bullets. Police said the alleged shooter posted an anti-Hispanic manifesto online before he carried out the attack.

Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News’ Sean Hannity he plans to call Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about his report on alleged FISA abuse.

Graham, a South Carolina Republican who chairs the Senate panel. said Wednesday on “Hannity” he will aim to have the proceedings be as transparent as possible for the American people.

“We’re going to pursue this in a transparent fashion,” Graham said. “We’re going to declassify as much as we can, including the FISA warrant applications.”

Graham said he will seek to publicize information about former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the document known as the Trump-Russia dossier.

“I’m going to give you all the information that was in the system about how suspicious people were of Christopher Steele, how biased he was, [and] let you read it for yourself. Transparency and accountability is my goal,” he said.

“I don’t know what he’s going to say,” he added of Horowitz.

In response, Hannity asked whether there was “overwhelming, incontrovertible evidence” of “premeditated fraud on a FISA court” and denying then-candidate Trump some of his constitutional rights.

Graham told Hannity Steele’s dossier is still unverified and remains “a piece of garbage” in his view.

“The system had a lot of notice about his bias,” he said of the British ex-spy.

“Mr. Durham will make a decision as to who to prosecute, if anyone,” he added, referencing John Durham, the federal prosecutor in Connecticut tasked by Attorney General William Barr with investigating the origins of the Russia probe.

“My goal is to explain to you and the American public how the system failed and make sure it never happens again.”

Trump touts border wall progress, optimistic after recent court victories

President Trump on Wednesday expressed optimism in his effort to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and said recent court victories will help pave a way around “obstructionist Democrats.”

Building the wall was a key promise during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign but he has struggled to secure congressional support for the project — a problem made worse for him when Democrats took control of the House after the 2018 midterm elections. Now the president appears intent on preventing his 2020 Democratic challenger from framing the issue as an unfulfilled promise.

SUPREME COURT GIVES WH GREEN LIGHT TO ENFORCE ASYLUM RESTRICTIONS

“The Wall is going up very fast despite total Obstruction by Democrats in Congress, and elsewhere,” Trump tweeted.

Trump promised to have close to 500 miles of wall along the 1,954-mile-long border with Mexico. The U.S. Supreme Court in July cleared the way for about $2.5 billion to be used from a Pentagon counter-drug program.

The Trump administration says the wall is important in keeping out people who cross illegally.

Critics say a wall is useless. They say most of those apprehended turn themselves in to Border Patrol agents in the hope they can be eventually released while their cases play out in immigration court.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a top 2020 Democratic hopeful, said on  Twitter in March that the border wall is not about security. She said, “it’s a monument of hate and division, and I won’t support it.”

The Supreme Court on Wednesday also issued an order against lower court injunctions that blocked the White House’s ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country. The order was not the final ruling but was seen as a victory for Trump. Only liberal Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented.

Victor Manjarrez Jr., a former Border Patrol chief who’s now a professor at the University of Texas, El Paso, spoke to the Associated Press and said tall border fencing is crucial in some areas and less helpful in others, like remote stretches of desert where shorter barriers and more technology like ground sensors would suffice.

He said building 450 to 500 miles of fence by the end of next year would be tough if that figure doesn’t include sections of the wall that have been built recently.

“As it stands now, contractors are building pretty fast,” Manjarrez said. The real question is whether the government needs to build that much fencing, he said.
