MSNBC guest says he wants ‘pitchforks and torches’ outside pro-Trump Equinox chairman’s house

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-08-08-at-11.14.35-PM MSNBC guest says he wants 'pitchforks and torches' outside pro-Trump Equinox chairman's house Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 463a66e2-d80c-5ef6-9a03-c7ab56240f9e

A guest on MSNBC called for “pitchforks and torches” outside the Hamptons residence of Equinox and SoulCycle chairman Stephen Ross after it became known that he was hosting a fundraiser for President Trump.

Above The Law executive editor Elie Mystal said he had “no problem” with putting a spotlight on billionaire donors like Ross “who fund this kind of racialized hate” since people of color are “already targets” under the Trump administration. He told the panel that he was willing to “go further.”

“I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons,” Mystal said. “I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice. There’s no reason it has to be. There’s no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”

MSNBC host Chris Hayes attempted to lower the temperature, pointing to the “peaceful protests” outside of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s house that took place earlier this week.

“I imagine there will be peaceful protests outside this which is, again it’s all speech, right, peaceful protest, the right to assembly under the First Amendment,” Hayes said. “That is the way that — because your point here is how does civil society deal with what we’re seeing?”

One of the protestors outside of McConnell’s home recorded a video calling for him to be stabbed “in the heart.”

This comes after a nationwide boycott was launched in reaction to Ross’s involvement with the Trump campaign. Celebrities like model Chrissy Teigen and actor/comedian Billy Eichner have led the call to end memberships with Equinox and SoulCycle.

A couple shared a romantic kiss on a bridge in Peru that turned fatal when they lost their balance and plunged to their deaths, a chilling video shows.

Maybeth Espinoz, 34, and Hector Vidal, 36, were locked in an embrace Saturday on Bethlehem Bridge in Cusco when they fell 50 feet to their deaths, Metro Uk reported.

Surveillance footage showed Espinoz around 1 a.m. perched on the railing of the bridge as she locked lips with her boyfriend.

She can be seen wrapping her legs around Vidal’s waist before falling backward over the barrier — and pulling her boyfriend with her as they tumbled to the road below, the news outlet reported.

Espinoz died en route to a local hospital while Vidal succumbed to his injuries later in the intensive care unit, Metro UK reported.

Espinoz and Vidal reportedly were mountaineers and had moved to Cusco to work as tour guides.

Armed off-duty firefighter halts armed suspect at Walmart store in Missouri, police say

Westlake Legal Group Wallmart-Springfield-Mo Armed off-duty firefighter halts armed suspect at Walmart store in Missouri, police say Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/missouri fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 37ac348d-aa32-5d3f-a4ed-1a9fce446810

An armed man wearing body armor sent panicked shoppers fleeing from a Walmart store in Missouri on Thursday, but an armed off-duty firefighter was able to detain the suspect until police officers arrived to make an arrest, Springfield police said.

The 20-year-old suspect was carrying loaded tactical weapons, according to reports.

“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that,” Springfield police Lt. Mike Lucas told The Springfield News-Leader.

“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that.”

— Lt. Mike Lucas, Springfield Police Department

In a Facebook post, Springfield police wrote that officers were dispatched to the Walmart store around 4:10 p.m. Thursday on reports of  “an armed white male.”

The suspect was wearing body armor and military-style clothing, according to the News-Leader, which cited information from Lucas.  He walked inside the Walmart carrying a “tactical rifle” and another gun, the newspaper reported, and carried more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

The suspect grabbed a cart, pushed it around the store and recorded cell phone video of himself walking through the Walmart, Springfield’s KY3 reported, citing police.

The television station reported that the store manager pulled a fire alarm, which prompted people to flee from the store.

The suspect then made his way out an emergency exit where the firefighter held the man at gunpoint, the station reported, adding that police showed up about three minutes later and made the arrrest.

Police said no shots were fired and no one was injured.

Lucas described the suspect as “pretty stoic” during initial police contact, the News-Leader reported.

“At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives,” police said in the Facebook post.

A fire marshal was reportedly called out to the scene to inspect the suspect’s car in the parking lot, to make sure there were no bombs in the vehicle.  Police said investigators will review surveillance video from the store and also check the suspect’s social media accounts to see if he was live-streaming the events, the newspaper reported.

The incident happened five days after a mass shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, that resulted in 22 deaths.

Graham: New Bruce Ohr docs show FISA warrant against ex-Trump campaign aide a ‘fraud’

Westlake Legal Group Graham-Hannity_FOX Graham: New Bruce Ohr docs show FISA warrant against ex-Trump campaign aide a 'fraud' fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/lindsey-graham fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc eb6bfff0-2ac5-5bdf-8406-b97d64219335 Charles Creitz article

New documents highlighting top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s contact with ex-British spy Christopher Steele are the latest troubling development for the DOJ in 2016.

That’s the claim from Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who said Thursday on “Hannity” that he believes there was deep corruption in the department during that year’s U.S. presidential election.

“Here’s what we’re looking at: Systematic corruption at the highest level of the Department of Justice and the FBI against President Trump and in favor of Hillary Clinton,” Graham said.

FBI KEPT USING STEELE DOSSIER FOR FISA APPLICATIONS DESPITE DOCUMENTING EX-SPY’S BIAS, DOCUMENTS SHOW

Host Sean Hannity then asked Graham whether officials “lied purposefully” on a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

“The best you could say is that they were incompetent,” Graham responded. “The most likely outcome is that they wanted a result.”

“I think the insurance policy is what we’re seeing here, getting into the Trump campaign,” Graham continued. “The FISA warrant against Carter Page was a fraud, I believe. The counter-intelligence investigation is something we have to look at very closely.”

On Thursday evening, newly released records obtained by Fox News showed the FBI formally documented the bias of Steele shortly after the November 2016 presidential election, yet continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple FISA court warrant application renewals.

The documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also reveal that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016.

The summaries of FBI interviews with Ohr, known as 302s, show that Ohr knew by September 2016 — a month before the initial application to surveil the Trump campaign — that Steele was “desperate” that Donald Trump not be elected president.

A source close to the matter told Fox News “this had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias” — yet the FISA warrant application went through in October 2016 with multiple renewals.

In his interview with Hannity, Graham claimed if a Republican operative acted in a way similar to Steele, the news would receive wall-to-wall media coverage.

“You could not turn on your television,” he said.

Biden says ‘poor kids’ just as bright as ‘white kids’ in latest gaffe

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6069305896001_6069314895001-vs Biden says ‘poor kids’ just as bright as ‘white kids’ in latest gaffe fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 33b458f5-f00c-5006-8d45-973ef839e7ed

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic primary frontrunner, made another gaffe Thursday when he told a crowd in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.”

Biden, who famously directed supporters to a wrong number during last month’s debate — and recently misidentified the sites of recent mass shootings — quickly corrected himself after some applause from the crowd at the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC, and finished, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”

Biden, who in 2006 drew criticism with a comment about Indian-Americans moving to Delaware, the state that Biden represented when he served in the U.S. Senate, also told a crowd at the Iowa State Fair that “we choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.”

Biden, like all of the Democratic candidates, has put blame on President Trump’s rhetoric for playing a role in the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. He said Trump is “using the language of “ white nationalists. He told CNN earlier this week that Trump talks about Muslims  and people of color in “almost subhuman terms.”

Trump on Monday called on the nation to condemn white nationalism, but he didn’t apologize for his incendiary rhetoric on race, from referring to illegal immigration as an “invasion” to his recent Twitter attacks on black members of Congress.

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke weighs in on 2020 Dems, calls out Biden, Harris

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke weighed in on the field of 2020 Democratic candidates and how some who describe themselves as Roman Catholics conflict with the religion.

“I’ve had non-Catholic leaders of government in this nation tell me that they were certain that the Catholic teaching on abortion and so-called same-sex marriage have changed because so many Catholics on Capitol Hill are regularly supporting this kind of legislation. And that’s a scandal,” Cardinal Burke said in an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Burke also offered a warning to presidential candidates who say they practice Catholicism but may not “present themselves” to receive a communion due to their politics, particularly former Vice President Joe Biden, who recently abandoned his support for the Hyde Amendment after saying for decades his faith was the reason why he couldn’t back government-funded abortions.

“It’s not a punishment. It’s actually a favor to these people to tell them don’t approach,” Burke said, “because if they approach, they commit sacrilege.”

The cardinal also called for an apology from Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who grilled federal Judge Brian Buescher over his affiliation with the men’s Catholic service group Knights of Columbus, asking him if he knew when he joined the group that it was an “all-male society” that “opposes a woman’s right to choose” and “marriage equality.”

“This is completely unacceptable,” Burke said. “I mean, I think you’re an everyday citizen whether you’re a Catholic or not, you need to look at that kind of statement for what it is and say this isn’t a person who I want to be the leader of my nation.”

Detroit Lions receiver Jermaine Kearse suffers broken leg in preseason game

Detroit Lions wide receiver Jermaine Kearse’s NFL season may have ended even before his team’s first preseason game was over.

After just the fifth play of the game, Kearse was carted off the field with an apparent broken leg and other injuries during Thursday night’s preseason opener against the New England Patriots in Detroit.

Mark Steyn: ‘The Hunt’ film is ‘the liberal twitterstorm fantasy’ taken to the next level

Westlake Legal Group Ross-Split_FOX Mark Steyn: 'The Hunt' film is 'the liberal twitterstorm fantasy' taken to the next level fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 5a55a3c3-6235-50cb-b868-fdd4423723a2

The upcoming NBC Universal picture “The Hunt” — depicting elites hunting “deplorables” — is the left’s Twitter fantasy satirized on the big screen, according to Mark Steyn.

The current crop of films are becoming stale, but movies that have connections to contemporary life are welcome, Steyn remarked Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“I get bored by ‘X-Men 37’, in which Cardboard Man battles Franchise Girl up in the sky and rips a hole in the space-time continuum,” he said.

“I actually approve of making films telling stories about the way we live now — we live in an increasingly fractious 50-50 nation.”

HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER THAT SATIRIZES KILLING OF ‘DEPLORABLES’ CAUSES OUTRAGE

Of the movie, set to be released in September, Steyn claimed it gives off a similar air as the objections to Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross holding a Trump campaign fundraiser.

“It’s the same condescension,” he said.

“It is actually the liberal Twitterstorm fantasy taken to the next level.

“On Twitter, they just destroy your career, get you fired, close down your restaurant — but this so-called satire actually wants to take it to the next level… take the cold civil war and make it a hot civil war.”

Regarding the movie itself, “The Hunt” is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing designated humans.

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that “Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire” following the shootings after ESPN reportedly pulled a trailer for the film that had been previously cleared to air on the sports network.

“The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals,” THR’s Kim Masters and Tatiana Siegel wrote. “It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey.”

Foreign Service officer blasts Trump’s ‘toxic agenda’ in op-ed announcing resignation

Westlake Legal Group Chuck-Park Foreign Service officer blasts Trump's 'toxic agenda' in op-ed announcing resignation Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/state-department fox-news/politics/foreign-policy fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/media fnc article 51c5650c-7472-57c1-842f-ff8b006796fa

A disgruntled Foreign Service officer blasted what he called President Trump’s “toxic agenda” in a scathing op-ed announcing his resignation on Thursday.

“Every day, we refuse visas based on administration priorities/ We recite administration talking points on border security, immigration and trade,” the departing officer, Chuck Park, wrote in The Washington Post.

“We plan travel itineraries, book meetings and literally hold doors open for the appointees who push Trump’s toxic agenda around the world.”

Park said he was ashamed it took him as long as it did to resign. He also said he was tired of people remaining “complacent” while Trump does things like impose a travel ban on majority-Muslim nations. Saturday’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, Park said, brought an end to his “complacency.”

JON HUNTSMAN RESIGNS AS AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA

“My son, born in El Paso on the American side of that same Rio Grande where the bodies of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his daughter were discovered, in the same city where 22 people were just killed by a gunman whose purported “manifesto” echoed the inflammatory language of our president, turned 7 this month,” he wrote. “I can no longer justify to him, or to myself, my complicity in the actions of this administration. That’s why I choose to resign.”

More from Media

Park, according to a Linkedin profile bearing his name, worked for nearly a decade at the State Department before leaving his post on Thursday. In his most recent position as a diplomat, he “developed and executed U.S. engagement strategies on trade and investment issues in British Columbia.”

Public servants like him should be “named and shamed” for defending the president’s actions, Park said. He argued that officials — like the Justice Department lawyer who defended the administration amid scrutiny surrounding conditions at migrant camps — were improperly using the excuse that they were “career officials serving nonpartisan institutions.”

FORMER STATE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE SENTENCED TO MORE THAN THREE YEARS IN CHINA SPY CASE

“Ask to read the commission of any Foreign Service officer, and you’ll see that we are hired to serve ‘during the pleasure of the president of the United States.’ That means we must serve this very partisan president,” he said.

Park also took on the talk of a so-called “deep state,” arguing that federal bureaucracy under Trump was “The Complacent State.” He went on to express regret that he’d promoted America abroad while Trump engaged in actions he opposed.

“In Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, I spoke of American openness and friendship at consulate events as my country carried out mass deportations and failed thousands of ‘dreamers.’ I attended celebrations of Black History Month at our embassy in Lisbon as black communities in the United States demanded justice for Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray and the victims of the mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston,” he said.

“And in Vancouver, I touted the strength of the United States’ democracy at the consulate’s 2016 election night party as a man who campaigned on racism, misogyny and wild conspiracy theories became president-elect.”

Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile says President Trump will face a “headwind” in 2020, while also weighing in on the Democrats shifting narrative from Russia to racism.

“The president has not been able to motivate Democrats to come his way. He has not been able to appeal to women, the majority of women to come his way. I think the president will face a headwind and it’s not based on what just happened over the last 10 days,” Brazile said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Thursday.

Brazile then criticized Trump for governing the country with a focus toward his base and theorized that Democratic presidential candidates could capitalize on that.
