New York Times apologizes for sharing previous obituary referring to China’s Mao as ‘one of history’s great revolutionary figures’

Westlake Legal Group NYT-Mao_iStock-Getty New York Times apologizes for sharing previous obituary referring to China's Mao as 'one of history's great revolutionary figures' Liam Quinn fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 113999b8-1877-5c82-ad39-d6b414cda5ae

The New York Times has apologized after referring to former Chinese leader Mao Zedong as “one of history’s great revolutionary figures.”

The Times’ shared its obituary to Mao — who died on Sept. 9, 1976 — to mark the anniversary of the People’s Republic of China founder’s death.

“Mao Zedong died on this day in 1976. The Times said he ‘began as an obscure peasant’ and ‘died one of history’s great revolutionary figures,’ a tweet sent with the obituary read.

The 1976 obituary stated: “After establishing the Chinese People’s republic, Mao launched a series of sweeping, sometimes convulsive campaigns to transform a semi-feudal, largely illiterate and predominantly agricultural country encompassing almost four million square miles into a modern, industrialized socialist state.”

A short time later, the outlet posted another tweet apologizing for the remark, which read: “We’ve deleted a previous tweet about Mao Zedong that lacked critical historical context.”

Mao founded the People’s Republic of China in 1949 and ran it virtually uncontested until his death on Sept. 9, 1976.

His reputation was deeply tarnished by the chaos and destruction of the ultra-radical 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution. Some estimates state Mao is responsible for the deaths of at least 45 million people.

Author Frank Dikötter wrote for History Today in 2016 that Mao is “one of the greatest mass murderers in history, responsible for the deaths of at least 45 million people between 1958 and 1962.”

“It is not merely the extent of the catastrophe that dwarfs earlier estimates, but also the manner in which many people died: between two and three million victims were tortured to death or summarily killed, often for the slightest infraction,” the piece read.

Trump calls GOP challengers ‘laughingstock’ publicity seekers

President Trump on Monday brushed off attempts by a trio of longshot primary challengers vying for the Republican Party presidential nomination as a “laughingstock” and a “publicity stunt.”

Former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford became the third Republican to announce his intention to unseat Trump. Other challengers include former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois and William Meld, the former governor of Massachusetts.

“The three people are a total joke,”  Trump told reporters outside the White House. “They’re a joke. They’re a laughingstock.”

He went on to mock their polling numbers before saying they had no credibility, Politico reported.

“I guess it’s a publicity stunt,” Trump said. “To be honest, I’m not looking to give them any credibility. They have no credibility.”

The three challengers already face an uphill battle. Over the weekend, Republicans in at least four states — Nevada, South Carolina, Kansas and Arizona — decided to abandon their presidential nomination contests.

“With no legitimate primary challenger and President Trump’s record of results, the decision was made to save South Carolina taxpayers over $1.2 million and forgo an unnecessary primary,” South Carolina GOP Chairman Drew McKissick said in a news release.

In a tweet last week, Weld blasted Trump amid reports the states were going to scrap its primaries and caucuses, saying Trump would rather be “crowned president than elected.”

Trump denied playing a part in the decision by GOP officials.

“The four states that canceled it don’t want to waste their money. If there was a race, they would certainly want to do that, but they are considered to be a laughingstock,” Trump said on Monday, according to Politico.

Scott Walker: Trump’s presence in North Carolina is ‘critical’ to GOP’s hopes

President Trump’s Monday rally in North Carolina is critical to Republicans hopes ahead of both a special U.S. House election and the GOP’s hopes in 2020, according to former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Republican contender Dan Bishop, a state senator, has a good chance of winning Tuesday, Walker told host Neil Cavuto Monday on “Your World.”

“President Trump did well there in the past. The left was more motivated going into the 2018 election, which is not uncharacteristic any time you’ve got an incumbent,” he said.

“I think it’s going to be critical in North Carolina as it will be going into 2020 that Republican right-of-center voters wake up and realize the left is motivated and we’ve got to be just as motivated. I think the president being there will remind people just how critically important this election is.”

TRUMP CALLS FOR END TO GOP COMMITTEE TERM LIMITS

On “Your World,” Walker also pointed to the district’s unique structure as another factor in the race.

“It’s all about turnout if you look at the district,” he said.

Later Monday, Trump will hold a rally in Fayetteville in support of Bishop — who is facing Democrat Dan McCready after the 2018 U.S. House election was voided.

The special primary and general elections were required after the state elections board in February determined last year’s contest tainted when Republican Mark Harris used a political operative who collected mail-in ballots. Harris, who narrowly led after November’s votes were counted, opted not to run again.

Former Rep. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C., who last held the seat, lost to Harris in the 2018 primary. He declined to run in the special election, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

President Trump on Monday tweeted a dramatic photo of a lightning strike behind Air Force One shortly before arriving for a campaign rally in North Carolina.

“Departing MCAS Cherry Point in North Carolina for Fayetteville, North Carolina. This is amazing!” the president tweeted.

The photo was first tweeted by CNN politics supervising producer Steve Brusk, who noted that Trump “had to cancel his planned tour of Hurricane Dorian damage because of thunderstorms in Fayetteville, NC.”

“This was a lightning strike behind Air Force One shortly after he arrived.” Brusk wrote.

Records raise new questions about FBI’s Michael Flynn investigation

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6022675804001_6022671914001-vs Records raise new questions about FBI’s Michael Flynn investigation fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc Catherine Herridge article 2e4980b3-5f76-54b7-9a86-8e168d916385

Then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the White House in early February 2017 that the bureau was not considering the national security adviser at the time, Michael Flynn, for a potential Logan Act prosecution over conversations with the Russian ambassador before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, government records reviewed by Fox News indicate.

McCabe was referring to the rarely prosecuted 200-year-old statute that bars American citizens from engaging with a foreign government without authorization from the current U.S. government.

FLYNN LAWYER AT WAR WITH MUELLER TEAM, ACCUSING PROSECUTORS OF ‘MALEVOLENT CONDUCT’

The records also indicate that Flynn reported, on two separate occasions, in the days leading up to his White House firing that FBI agents told him the bureau investigation was over or being closed out.

Both incidents raise questions over the underlying offense that formed the basis for the initial FBI and DOJ investigation into Flynn.

The retired general was later fired by the White House for misleading the vice president about communications with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, during the transition before Trump was sworn in.

Flynn was never charged with improperly communicating with Kislyak, but in December 2017 pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

On Tuesday, Flynn and his legal team are back in court after alleging that special counsel prosecutors withheld evidence. Fox News has reached out to McCabe’s legal team for comment.

Earlier this year, Flynn fired the legal team that negotiated his guilty plea.

In an Aug. 30 court filing, Flynn’s new lawyer, Sidney Powell, wrote, “The prosecutors in this case have repeatedly failed to produce Brady evidence despite…the clarity of this Court’s Order… their ethical and constitutional obligations…specific requests for documents the prosecutors know are exculpatory, and… those requests being made multiple times.”

Brady evidence refers to all exculpatory evidence prosecutors are obligated to turn over, as established in the Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland.

Powell has alleged that members of the special counsel team prosecuting the case under the direction of prosecutor Andrew Weissmann “affirmatively suppressed evidence (hiding Brady material) that destroyed the credibility of their primary witness, impugned their entire case against M. Flynn, while at the same time at the same time putting excruciating pressure on him to enter his guilty plea and manipulating or controlling the press to their advance to extort that plea.”

The filing also highlights contact, reported by Fox News, between Weissmann and other senior Justice Department officials in the fall of 2016 before the presidential election, and nearly a year before Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel.

Powell, Flynn’s attorney, highlighted to the court that Justice Department official Bruce Ohr was a back channel to the FBI and shared the anti-Trump dossier with Justice Department officials who later joined the special counsel team.

Ohr gave a closed-door transcribed interview last August sharing details of his 2016 meetings with British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier later used to secure a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide. The interview was part of the Republican-led House Oversight and Judiciary Committee probes.

In a series of questions about his meetings with Steele, including one on July 30, 2016, and who he shared the information with, Ohr referenced both McCabe and Weissmann.

A separate motion from Flynn’s legal team accused the prosecution of withholding the original FBI summary of Flynn’s interview known as a 302.

The publicly released version of the 302 shows it was dated mid-February 2017 — almost three weeks after the interview took place.

The prosecutors have taken the position that they gave Flynn’s original legal team the relevant records, and in December 2017, Flynn accepted responsibility for his actions under oath.

Disney World rewards Hurricane Dorian relief donor with free vacation

Sometimes, the best way to get a vacation is to give one away.

When a young boy took money that his family had been saving to go to Disney World and used it to feed people evacuating from Hurricane Dorian, the theme park noticed. Officials there decided to reward his generosity by giving him exactly what he originally wanted.

Instead of going to Disney World, Jermaine Bell asked his parents to go to South Carolina over Labor Day weekend, Fox 35 reported at the time. It turns out, Bell had decided to use the vacation money to help feed people evacuating from Dorian.

“The people that are traveling to go to other places, I wanted them to have some food to eat, so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they’re going to stay at,” Bell told Fox 35 at the time.

Bell turned 7 on Sunday and when Disney found out about his generosity, it planned a big surprise, Fox 35 reports. A group of cast members made a surprise visit to his home in Jacksonville, Fla., where they informed him that he and his family were being provided with a free VIP vacation for later this month.

Video of Bell receiving the good news was uploaded to YouTube by Disney, with the caption, “Six-year-old Jermaine Bell of Jacksonville, Fla., spent more than a year saving money for an upcoming birthday trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. However, hurricane Dorian changed Jermaine’s plans in a big way. Millions of people have since been inspired by the story of this little boy’s selfless act of compassion.”

The health care provider told the television station she has an open-door policy on school days for children in the community, where they can knock on her door before and after school for snack.

“I was noticing how the kids, they would always be hungry,” Anderson said.

She added: “They get off the bus and they just take off running because they never know what I have in the bag. I switch it up. Sometimes I give them special treats for my special babies.”

Judge orders resentencing for Rand Paul neighbor after ruling 30 days too lenient

Westlake Legal Group AP19239595054666-1 Judge orders resentencing for Rand Paul neighbor after ruling 30 days too lenient Louis Casiano fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics fox-news/person/rand-paul fox news fnc/us fnc e472a7c3-5f0f-5f15-bc29-a070a51e7e49 article

A federal appeals court judge on Monday ordered the resentencing of the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in 2017 after ruling the original 30-day sentence was too lenient.

Sixth Circuit Court Judge Jane Stranch said the lower court that imposed the sentence after Rene Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting the lawmaker had no compelling justification for sentencing him below federal guidelines, The Hill reported.

SEN. RAND PAUL TO UNDERGO HERNIA SURGERY IN CANADA AFTER ATTACK BY NEIGHBOR

“Federal defendants with a criminal history category of I who were convicted of assault received an average sentence of 26 months’ imprisonment and a median sentence of 21 months,” the 16-page ruling states, citing data. “We therefore VACATE Boucher’s sentence and REMAND for resentencing.”

In making her ruling, Stranch cited other 30-day prison sentences for those found guilty of assaulting members of Congress, including two defendants in 1981 who threw eggs at a congressman. They missed.

Another defendant was given 15 days after spitting on a senator at an airport, according to The Hill.

“These prison terms were similar to Boucher’s, but the offense conduct  was  quite  different – as the Government argues, ‘it is difficult to understand why a tackle resulting in long-term serious injuries warrants the same sentence as an egg toss or spit in the face,’” the ruling states.

Paul had part of his lung removed and suffered several broken bones as a result of the assault. The incident occurred in November 2017 when he was tackled from behind while mowing his lawn.

Boucher, a retired anesthesiologist, said the attack was sparked because he was agitated about piles of brush on Paul’s property. He also said Paul used his lawnmower to blow leaves onto his property.

Paul told Fox News in 2018 there was no longstanding dispute with Boucher.

“It is impossible to have a dispute when no words of disagreement were ever spoken — neither immediately nor at any other time before the attack occurred,” he said.

In January, Paul was awarded $580,000 in damages after suing his neighbor.s

Our Milky Way galaxy could be filled with alien civilizations, a new study claims, but we don’t know because they haven’t stopped by Earth for a visit in millions of years.

According to a study published last month in The Astronomical Journal, extraterrestrial life might taking its time to fully explore the galaxy, even using the movement of star systems to make this type of journey easier.

The scientists’ work is the latest response to what’s known as the Fermi paradox, which wonders why we have yet to detect signs of alien life.

Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi famously said something to the effect of, “But where is everybody?” in reference to the possibility of star-hopping space aliens.

The new study claims the aliens may just be taking their time and being strategic.

“If you don’t account for motion of stars when you try to solve this problem, you’re basically left with one of two solutions,” Jonathan Carroll-Nellenback, a computational scientist and the study’s lead author, told Business Insider. “Either nobody leaves their planet, or we are in fact the only technological civilization in the galaxy.”

Stars, along with the planets around them, orbit the center of the Milky Way on unique paths at varying speeds, and they sometimes zip past one another as they do, Business Insider reports.

Carroll-Nellenback’s study points out that the aliens could simply be waiting for their next destination to come closer to them.
