Laura Ingraham: Trump policy wins, UK election show voters are ‘fed up with elites and so-called experts’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6115778900001_6115777513001-vs Laura Ingraham: Trump policy wins, UK election show voters are 'fed up with elites and so-called experts' Victor Garcia fox-news/world/world-regions/europe/brexit fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc b8af8dbf-300d-502c-b902-fe2a2221629a article

Laura Ingraham touted President Trump’s recent policy victories during Friday’s “The Ingraham Angle,” saying that although House Democrats have passed two articles of impeachment, the president was still winning.

“The weeks of investigations and hearings that followed were just embarrassing for the left,” Ingraham said. “They produced zero evidence of an impeachable offense. No crime, and only turned public opinion gradually against removing President Trump from office, including those key battleground states.”

TRUMP CALLS ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ‘WEAK’ AND ONLY REASON DEMS AGREED TO USMCA

“The weeks of investigations and hearings that followed were just embarrassing for the left. They [have] … only turned public opinion gradually against removing President Trump from office.”

— Laura Ingraham

Ingraham gave Trump credit for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), and the pending China trade agreement, mocking TV pundits for continuing to doubt Trump.

USMCA would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which took effect in 1994 under former President Bill Clinton. Trump has been an outspoken advocate of the new pact and has publicly pushed for House Democrats to hold a final vote.

Separately, the U.S. and China have agreed to the terms of a phase one trade deal, though details are still being finalized, a source told FOX Business.

Ingraham also discussed this week’s election in Britain, saying the Conservative Party’s victory there — all but assuring the country’s withdrawal from the European Union — signaled that voters are sick of the “elites.”

“We saw the people were fed up with the elites and the so-called experts running free countries into the ground,” Ingraham said. “People in the U.S. and Europe are still fed up after years of globalist obstruction. The movement sweeping Europe is not dying — and Trump’s a huge part of this. It shows that the people aren’t going to be silenced.”

“In the midst of this fraudulent impeachment struggle, a Trump 2020 victory is actually now closer than ever before,” Ingraham said.

Arizona dad accused of killing man who tried to enter teen daughter’s restroom stall gets 8-year prison term

An Arizona father who authorities say fatally beat a man who allegedly tried to follow the dad’s teenage daughter into a restroom stall was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison.

Defendant Melvin Harris, 41, accepted a plea deal on a manslaughter charge after initially facing a second-degree murder charge in connection with the 2018 incident, FOX 10 of Phoenix reported.

Harris was waiting outside a QuikTrip convenience store in Phoenix, after arriving there to pick up his daughter and two of her friends, The Arizona Republic reported.

When his daughter came out of the store, she told him that a suspect later identified as Leon Armstrong had tried to enter her stall inside the store’s restroom.

Harris asked a store security guard to handle the situation – or else he would handle it himself, police and court records said, according to the Republic.

The father later told police that Armstrong took a swing at him, so he reacted by punching, kicking and stomping on Armstrong, who died several days later from a severe brain injury, according to FOX 10.

Harris had pleaded guilty to the manslaughter charge last month, according to the Republic.

Sean Hannity calls Democrats who represent Trump districts ‘cowards’ and ‘frauds’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096898958001_6096890350001-vs Sean Hannity calls Democrats who represent Trump districts 'cowards' and 'frauds' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc ee941a00-2085-59a5-b5fb-1268964ef157 article

Sean Hannity slammed House Democrats who won seats in districts that President Trump carried in 2016 Friday night, blaming them for the ongoing impeachment process and calling them “cowards” and “frauds.”

“[Impeachment] could all come to an end right now if these 31 … self-described moderates, they ran as moderates, weren’t standing in the way,” Hannity said on his television program. “They represent the districts that President Trump won and in some cases by big margins. Almost none of them willing to go up for their own constituents. We hear maybe eight might break away. Now, sadly, these cowards are ready and willing, they’re willing to walk the plank for Nancy Pelosi, AOC, the squad.”

REPUBLICANS ERUPT AS NADLER SUDDENLY POSTPONES IMPEACHMENT VOTE NEAR MIDNIGHT

The host accused the Democrats of being more loyal to their party’s leadership than to their constituents.

“They care more about the radical socialist, far-left leadership, divisive, do-nothing Democratic Party than they do about Americans and what they have now done to this country for three years,” Hannity said.

The House Judiciary Committee voted Friday to adopt two articles of impeachment against President Trump – capping a contentious three-day session that Republicans panned as a “kangaroo court” and teeing up a historic floor vote next week.

Hannity, still focused on the 31 Democrats accused them of lying to get elected in their districts.

“In order to get elected, that means they had to lie to the voters and pretend to be independent-minded, rational leaders,” Hannity said. “But now you, we the people… we know the truth. These lawmakers, none of them are moderates.”

“They’re all frauds. Almost all of them supporting the most vague, the weakest, politically motivated two articles of impeachment,” Hannity added.

Gregg Jarrett: Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton have ‘more baggage than an airport terminal’

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132207648470320000 Gregg Jarrett: Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton have 'more baggage than an airport terminal' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-jersey fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-jersey-shore-atlantic-city fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 6cd747e5-b53b-5f86-a05e-d0e130417c71

Fox News analyst Gregg Jarrett said Friday that former Vice President Joe Biden and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton both have an immense amount of personal and political  “baggage.”

Jarrett made the remarks on “Hannity” after host Sean Hannity played a clip from a new documentary about Clinton in which she spoke about marrying former President Bill Clinton and debating President Trump, among other life stories — and read from a Washington Examiner report claiming that Hunter Biden had been arrested in Stone Harbor, N.J., on drug charges in 1988 — around the same time his father was fighting the “war on drugs” as a U.S. Senator from Delaware.

“Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton have more baggage than an airport terminal,” Jarrett said. “Hillary Clinton’s [documentary] series is promoting herself.”

MIKE JOHNSON DISMISSES ‘ABSURD’ CLAIM MCCONNELL SHOULD RECUSE HIMSELF FROM IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Jarrett said Clinton appears to have a Martin Luther King-like “dream” that she will rescue the Democratic Party from a contested convention and finally make a successful run to be president of the United States.

“I have a dream, I will walk onto the stage of the Democratic convention next summer and by acclamation, I will be the nominee because they are deadlocked,” he said. “The problem is that she is just haunted by too many scandals.”

Jarrett said the Uranium One scandal, her email scandal and FISA abuse scandal have collectively tarnished her image.

“Good luck with your MLK-like dream, Hillary,” Jarrett said.

Earlier this week, Clinton celebrated President Trump’s impeachment, claiming the move is necessary to defend democracy.

“We must defend our democracy, and the painful truth is that the occupant of the Oval Office is waging war against it,” Clinton tweeted.

During a BBC interview in November, Clinton said she is not planning on running, but admitted she thinks about what it would be like to be president “all the time.”

Peter McMahon: UK election was ‘a great, big stonking rejection of Jeremy Corbyn’

Peter McMahon joined wife Dana Perino and Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt to break down the result of this week’s general election in McMahon’s native United Kingdom on the latest edition of the “Perino & Stirewalt: I’ll Tell You What” podcast.

The Conservative Party dominated Thursday’s election, winning 365 seats in the 650-member House of Commons to give Prime Minister Boris Johnson a clear majority of 80 seats. The opposition Labour Party, led by hard-left parliamentarian Jeremy Corbyn, could only win 203 seats, their worst result in a general election since 1935.

“First of all, kudos to Boris Johnson,” McMahon told Perino and Stirewalt. “He’s only the second prime minister I’ve known in my lifetime who has had the guts to say, ‘Back me or sack me.’ The only other one was Ted Heath when the miners were on strike back in [the mid-1970s] … Boris did the same.”

However, McMahon took issue with Johnson’s characterization of the result as “a great, big stonking mandate for Brexit,” saying it was actually “a great, big stonking rejection of Jeremy Corbyn.”

“Labour’s worst enemy was actually Jeremy Corbyn because he was unelectable,” McMahon said … “He’s probably the worst Labour leader in living memory, and that says something, there’s been a few … He’s pro-Hamas, he was pro-IRA [Irish Republican Army] in the days when those big, brave heroes were murdering children in the name of Irish unity. The man’s a disaster.”

When asked by Stirewalt whether the Labour Party would moderate its hard-left policies in the wake of Thursday’s defeat, McMahon said: “I believe that they will probably keep going the way they’ve been going. They have a lot of people who are, they’re not just socialists, they’re Marxists and they have a lot of power in the Labour Party.”

Stirewalt noted that Thursday’s landslide for Johnson is “the election Donald Trump is hoping for.”

“The election Donald Trump is hoping for is, ‘Look, you may not like me, I may have unusual hair, I may be not your exact cup of tea. But this other person is a kook and a socialist and a crazy person and they want open borders and late-term abortion and all of this stuff.’ And that’s why for Democrats, they feel this urgent need about, ‘We’ve got to find somebody who’s moderate enough to talk to people in the suburbs and to talk to working-class white voters.”

Leon Spinks showing ‘small signs of improvement’ in prostate cancer treatment, family says

Leon Spinks, the former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion who in 1978 defeated Muhammad Ali in one of the biggest upsets in the sport’s history, is in a Las Vegas hospital battling prostate cancer, though he’s showing “small signs of improvement.”

A family spokesperson told Fox News that Spinks was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and it has since spread to his bladder.

“The last few months have been an agonizing roller coaster for Leon and his wife, Brenda, with continuous hospital stays. Leon is showing small signs of improvement and progress,” the spokesperson said. “A miraculous fighter his entire life, we are optimistic and hopeful that he will move out of ICU soon. The power of prayer is real and his family is beyond grateful for all of the tremendous love and support.”

LEON SPINKS HOSPITALIZED AS WIFE ASKS FOR PRAYERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA 

Brenda Spinks, the wife of the boxing legend, put out a concerning message on her Facebook on Monday asking for prayers for her husband.

“Dear Friends: I know it’s been a while. However, you know how I Believe in the Power of Prayer,” she wrote. “It’s been a tough year for us. Leon has endured a lot of medical problems. I’m reaching out to ask you to kindly pray for my Beautiful Husband Leon. So that he may overcome the obstacles that have crossed his path. We Love You All & Appreciate Your Support.”

ANDY RUIZ JR. SAYS POOR TRAINING, DIET LED TO LOSS TO ANTHONY JOSHUA: ‘I THINK I ATE EVERYTHING’

Spinks, 66, has battled several health issues over the last few years. He was diagnosed with brain shrinkage in 2012, which doctors said was from the beatings he took in the ring, and in 2014 he was hospitalized for abdominal problems.

The boxing legend was known for his victory over Ali in 1978 but had his WBC heavyweight title stripped after facing Ali in an unsanctioned rematch seven months later.

Spinks also won a gold medal in the Montreal Olympics in 1976.

He finished his career with a 26-17-3 record with 14 knockouts.

Lisa Boothe rips media over Russia investigation: ‘They peddled this uncritically’ for years

Westlake Legal Group Lisaboothe Lisa Boothe rips media over Russia investigation: 'They peddled this uncritically' for years Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 6753bac2-13bf-5aa1-9cad-836b1e50ecd6

Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe criticized the media Friday for their role in fomenting the Russia investigation following the release of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the matter earlier in the week.

“I always ask myself this question about all of this … if Hillary Clinton would have won, would we have heard much about it?” Boothe wondered aloud on “The Story with Martha MacCallum“.  “Would it have gotten a ton of attention or would President Obama even go through with sanctions and try to put the heat on Russia as he did on his way out, if Hillary Clinton would have won?”

“I ask myself that, and I think the answer is no and that is telling in itself,” Boothe added.

IG MICHAEL HOROWITZ TESTIFIES BEFORE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

Horowitz concluded in his long-awaited report on the FBI’s Russia investigation that there was no evidence of political bias in the probe’s launch — but he made clear during testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that while he did not make a determination as to motive, he is referring officials to the FBI and Department of Justice for further review.

“What I also find just incredibly damaging and very scary is the mere fact that you look at the media peddled basically, you know, opposition research from Hillary Clinton and the DNC,” Boothe said, mentioning the infamous Christopher Steele dossier. “They peddled this uncritically for a couple of years.”

Boothe said the media is fixating on Horowitz’s conclusions and ignoring his statement that clear errors were made in the process of obtaining a FISA warrant.

“They’re ignoring the fact that there are 17 errors and omissions that were made,” Boothe said. “The fact that you look at someone like Kevin Clinesmith, who doctored information that says that Carter Page was working with the CIA.”

Clinesmith, a FBI attorney, was found to have altered an email to say that Page had not been a CIA source, when in fact he had been working with that agency. This ultimately led to the FBI repeatedly renewing the FISA warrant against Page while leaving exculpatory evidence out of their application.

Tunnel to Towers to pay off mortgage for family of Jersey City police detective killed in attack

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation said Friday it would pay off the mortgage of an officer slain in the Jersey City attack this week.

Jersey City Police Detective Joseph Seals left behind a wife and five children after being gunned down in a cemetery during a shootout Tuesday between police and two suspects that stretched over several hours.

Seals, 40, was among six people who were killed, including three bystanders and two suspects.

After shooting Seals, the suspects gunned down three more people at a Jewish market.

Detective Joseph Seals 

JERSEY CITY DETECTIVE KILLED IN SHOOTINGS IS REMEMBERED FOR HELPING GET MANY GUNS OFF THE STREETS

Officials said the suspects had likely been planning to kill far more people.

“Everything about it is consistent, that they did not intend to harm only four people — that they had a larger plan,” Jersey City Director of Public Safety James Shea told reporters Friday. “Based on what we know now, the amount of guns, the amount of ammunition, the fact that they had explosive devices — we would have to assume they planned to do a lot more damage than we allowed them to do.”

JERSEY CITY SHOOTING: BERNARD KERIK’S SON AMONG OFFICERS HOSPITALIZED

Authorities said the shootout might have been started by Seals trying to stop an incident involving illegal guns when he was shot down by gunfire that erupted near the cemetery. Seals worked out of the Cease Fire Unit, which is tasked with getting illegal guns off the street.

“He [probably] is responsible for more guns being removed from the streets than any,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted. “He was an officer that loved JC [Jersey City], was involved in the city, and one that everyone knew regardless of their precinct.”

Rep. Mike Johnson dismisses ‘absurd’ claim McConnell should recuse from impeachment trial

House Judiciary Committee member Mike Johnson, R-La., dismissed a claim by a committee Democrat Friday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is unfit to oversee an impeachment trial of President Trump.

Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., claimed McConnell’s recent interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity proved he was not impartial enough to run the proceedings responsibly.

“Senator McConnell has promised to sabotage that trial and he must recuse himself,” said Demings, a former Orlando police chief, later adding that “No court in the country would allow a member of the jury to also serve as the accused’s defense attorney.”

“I think it’s absurd,” Johnson said of Demings’ claim.

HANNITY EXCLUSIVE: MITCH MCCONNELL SAYS ‘ZERO CHANCE’ TRUMP IS REMOVED

In the interview with Hannity, McConnell, R-Ky., said he will “take [his] cues” from President Trump’s attorneys.

“There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this to the extent that we can,” he said, adding that the Senate would “be working through this process, hopefully in a fairly short period of time.”

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Johnson said some of McConnell’s recent comments simply acknowledge an “obvious truth.”

“Everybody in the country now has seen the record. They’ve seen the facts and they’ve seen what supposedly is backing up these articles of impeachment — and there’s nothing there,” Johnson told host Brian Kilmeade.

Demings also accused McConnell of threatening to violate his own oath of office.

“He has effectively promised to let President Trump manage his own impeachment trial. The Senator must withdraw,” she said.

“The Senate rules provide the oath to be sworn by each Senator: ‘I solemnly swear … that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of President Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God’,” Demings added, according to a statement on her official House website.

David Bossie: Democrats committing political suicide with Trump impeachment – It will live in infamy

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6115748268001_6115744481001-vs David Bossie: Democrats committing political suicide with Trump impeachment – It will live in infamy fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics/2020-house-races fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc David Bossie article 6a508416-94a7-536f-b843-9eef0ba60134

Unhinged House Democrats cemented their shameful place in history Friday as the Judiciary Committee approved two extraordinarily weak articles of impeachment against President Trump – without a single Republican vote.

Earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.., admitted that her deranged impeachment scheme has been going on for two-and-a-half years.

Not only does this make Pelosi a liar – she denied being in favor of impeachment until September – it shows why the Democrats can’t stop the impeachment train now even though it’s headed straight for a derailment.

TRUMP SLAMS PELOSI, SAYS DEMS USING IMPEACHMENT FOR ‘POLITICAL GAIN’ AFTER JUDICIARY VOTE

National Democrats and their allies in the Trump-hating media have invested years and untold sums of money on their partisan attempted coup d’état. To turn back now would amount to an acknowledgment of how wrong they’ve been, time after time after time.

First Democrats came up with the lie that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. Democrats were wrong.

Then Democrats invented the claim of a big conspiracy by Trump, not collusion. Wrong again.

Then Democrats cried obstruction of justice. Wrong yet again.

Opinion

Then desperate Democrats latched onto Ukraine and the supposed quid pro quo – until President Trump released the transcript of his July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, showing no such deal.

Then Democrats took a poll, and said never mind that; it’s actually bribery. Unfortunately for the Democrats, the facts don’t support bribery either. U.S. foreign aid flowed to Ukraine and Ukraine did not conduct an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter.

Now Democrats are left with the amorphous and flimsy charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress against President Trump.

It’s hard to comprehend just how lost leaders of a political party must be to put everything on the line – including the next presidential election and their majority in the U.S. House – for two unserious articles of impeachment that the American people aren’t on board with.

This is called political suicide.

Two highly respected national polls out this week found that a majority of the American people do not want President Trump to be impeached and removed from office.

A Monmouth University poll showed 50 percent of Americans opposing impeachment. A Quinnipiac University poll showed 51 percent of those surveyed are against the disgraceful Democratic effort to remove President Trump from office.

And in the key battleground state of Wisconsin, this week a Marquette University poll found only 40 percent in favor of impeachment and 52 percent against it.

Pelosi would be wise not to overlook this data. In this divided day and age, any time a measure garners the support of 50 percent or more of those polled it’s significant.

Consider for a moment if the numbers in these polls were flipped. The Democrats would be screaming from the mountaintops that they had the will of the people behind them.

However, the impeachment-crazed Democrats appear to be following in the footsteps of Republicans in 1998 when the GOP made the colossal mistake of ignoring public opinion regarding whether to impeach President Bill Clinton.

As the full House takes up the impeachment question next week, all eyes will be on the 31 Democrats who represent districts that President Trump carried in the 2016 election.

These endangered Democrats will decide whether there is a divisive and all-consuming impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate next year, just 10 months before the 2020 presidential election.

There are currently 431 members of the House of Representatives, due to four vacancies. Those 431 representatives are split between 233 Democrats, 197 Republicans and one independent member – Justin Amash of Michigan.

If Amash votes in favor of impeachment, Pelosi can only afford to lose 18 members of her caucus in order to pass the two articles of impeachment.

If Democrats Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey vote against passage of the articles of impeachment – just as they voted against beginning the sham inquiry – Pelosi’s margin for error gets that much smaller.

A vote in favor of the hollow articles of impeachment by any of these swing-seat Democrats will put their reelection prospects in jeopardy and therefore put the Democratic majority in the House in serious danger.

Freshmen Democrats in particular hailing from districts Trump won are playing with fire by voting yes on impeachment.

The odds of these Democrats losing their seats and the Democratic House majority along with it will increase exponentially with an irresponsible vote in favor of impeachment: Lucy McBath of Georgia; Abby Finkenauer and Cindy Axne of Iowa; Jared Golden of Maine: Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens of Michigan; Angie Craig of Minnesota; Chris Pappas of New Hampshire; Xochitl Torres Small of New Mexico; Susie Lee of Nevada; Anthony Brindisi and Max Rose of New York; Kendra Horn of Oklahoma; Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania; Joe Cunningham of South Carolina; and Ben McAdams of Utah.

These rookie legislators are sure to get an earful at upcoming town hall meetings in their districts. Time will tell if they will listen to their constituents.

If the impeachment process moves to the Senate, public support will only weaken. It will take little effort by Republican senators to expose House Democrats and their political charade.

Once due process is allowed and witnesses who can tell the whole story are permitted to testify, the American people will be outraged by the reprehensible behavior of the radical House Democratic inquisitors.

Because the facts are on his side, President Trump will be acquitted in the Senate in short order.

This smear campaign against President Trump has all the characteristics of an impeachment inquiry that is doomed to fail. The American people are turning against the witch hunt more and more with each passing day – and for good reasons. It’s rushed; it’s partisan; it’s incomplete; it’s unfair; and most significantly, it’s completely devoid of facts and evidence.

Pelosi’s decision to put an already divided America through this ordeal for selfish political purposes will live in infamy. It will also pave the way for a new Republican majority in the House, along with the overwhelming reelection of President Trump.
