McCarthy signs on to resolution to censure Schiff for ‘parody’ reading of Ukraine call

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6089426092001_6089421483001-vs McCarthy signs on to resolution to censure Schiff for 'parody' reading of Ukraine call fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/kevin-mccarthy fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox news fnc/politics fnc article Andrew O'Reilly 88e3937a-53d4-5c31-83a7-cf658834f1f5

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., added his name to a resolution Wednesday that would censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for reading a “parody” version of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing last week.

McCarthy is now the most high-profile Republican to sign on to the resolution to censure Schiff that was introduced last Friday by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

“Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the American people for years,” McCarthy said in a tweet. “Now he is so desperate to damage the president that he literally made up a false version of a phone call. Enough is enough.”

HOUSE COMMITTEES SUBPOENA POMPEO FOR UKRAINE DOCUMENTS AS PART OF IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

McCarthy added: “I have signed a resolution to censure Schiff in the House of Representatives.”

Schiff, who is leading one of the committee’s investigating Trump in the impeachment inquiry announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been under fire from conservatives for the “parody” of the president’s call with Zelensky that he read at the testimony last week of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Maguire was on Capitol Hill to defend his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint detailing how Trump pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate the Biden family.

The complaint contains allegations related to Trump’s call with Zelensky in July, when he urged him to investigate alleged corruption involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

The White House on Wednesday released an unclassified version of the transcript of the phone call. The memo, which does not reflect a “verbatim transcript” but is based on “notes and recollections” of those memorializing the call, shows Zelensky asking for more military aid before Trump asks him to pursue some kind of investigation into Biden and his son.

On the dais last week, Schiff gave his own exaggerated version of the phone call.

“I have a favor I want from you,” Schiff said while appearing to read from a paper. “And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it, on this and on that.”

Schiff later chalked his fictional summary of the controversial phone call to parody.

“My summary of the president’s call was meant to be at least, part, in parody,” Schiff said. “The fact that that’s not clear is a separate problem in and of itself. Of course, the president never said, ‘If you don’t understand me I’m going to say it seven more times,’ my point is, that’s the message that the Ukraine president was receiving in not so many words.”

Schiff’s explanation, however, did little to quell the outrage of his Republican colleagues who were already on the defensive following Pelosi’s announcement last Tuesday of the impeachment inquiry into Trump.

“The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee read a statement that was blatantly false, had no corresponding evidence nor relationship to the actual transcript of President Trump’s telephone conversation with the Ukrainian president,” Biggs said in a video posted on Twitter. “That is inexcusable.”

Trump also weighed in on Schiff’s “parody” reading – calling the California Democrat “desperate” and accusing him of lying to Congress.

“Rep. Adam Schiff fraudulently read to Congress, with millions of people watching, a version of my conversation with the President of Ukraine that doesn’t exist,” Trump tweeted. “He was supposedly reading the exact transcribed version of the call, but he completely changed the words to make it sound horrible, and me sound guilty.”

Schiff shot back at Trump on social media, accusing the president of trying to “shakedown” a world leader for election dirt and then trying to cover it up.

“You engaged in a shakedown to get election dirt from a foreign country,” Schiff said. “And then you tried to cover it up.”

Legionnaires’ outbreak in North Carolina kills 1, sickens nearly 100 others: officials

Westlake Legal Group legionella-bacteria Legionnaires' outbreak in North Carolina kills 1, sickens nearly 100 others: officials Madeline Farber fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/north-carolina fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox news fnc/health fnc f178edc6-3bba-5f96-adab-bd7250622ef8 article

An outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in North Carolina has killed at least one person and sickened dozens of others, state health officials said.

As of Sept. 30, at least 97 people were sickened with the disease, while 63 were hospitalized, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. 

LEGIONNAIRES’ DISEASE OUTBREAK AT ATLANTA HOTEL LEAVES 1 DEAD, STATE HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY

Though officials are still investigating the source of the outbreak, many of those sickened reported attending the North Carolina Mountain State Fair in September. Officials are urging anyone who attended the fair and is experiencing symptoms of Legionnaires’ to see a doctor.

“Legionnaires’ disease is a severe form of pneumonia,” according to the Mayo Clinic, which explains pneumonia as an inflammation of the lung that is typically caused by an infection.

“You can’t catch Legionnaires’ disease from person-to-person contact. Instead, most people get Legionnaires’ disease from inhaling the bacteria,” the Mayo Clinic adds, noting that older adults, those who smoke, or those with a compromised immune system are the most susceptible.

Legionella pneumophila, a bacterium, is usually the cause of the illness. It can be found in soil and water, but more commonly causes infection when it multiplies in water systems (e.g., hot tubs and air conditioners).

LEGIONNAIRES’ DISEASE OUTBREAK AT ATLANTA HOTEL IS NOW LARGEST EVER RECORDED IN GEORGIA, HEALTH OFFICIAL SAYS

The disease is treatable with antibiotics, and those who are sickened typically recover in full. Symptoms often include fever, chills, cough, and shortness of breath.

The news comes after health officials in Georgia this past August responded to a massive Legionnaires’ outbreak linked to a hotel in Atlanta. At the time, a state health official told Fox News that the Legionella outbreak was the largest ever recorded in Georgia.

Arizona high school football coach resigns after being accused of running up score

An Arizona high school football coached resigned from his post on Monday after accusations he was running up the score during a game.

Devin Dourisseau was the head coach of La Joya Community High School in Avondale when the team defeated Glendale Cooper Canyon 60-0 on Friday. Dourisseau told the Arizona Republic he stepped down after he was accused of “wrongdoing.”

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS’ JEREMY BANKS’ ARREST VIDEO RELEASED: ‘WHERE I’M FROM, WE SHOOT AT COPS’

“I was threatened to be removed from the sideline for our (upcoming) game against Valley Vista if we scored another point (in the Glendale Cooper Canyon game),” he told the newspaper. “The AD and principal had a meeting with me this morning and basically told me I was in the wrong.”

“We had one special teams score and two defensive scores in the second half. My first team only scored once and we ran the ball with my 2nd and 3rd team running back and scored.”

He added: “Per the conversation, I stepped down because I was accused of wrongdoing and running up the score.”

Stephen Moore: Trump will be ‘very difficult’ to beat amid growth of middle-class income

Westlake Legal Group AP19268631536450 Stephen Moore: Trump will be 'very difficult' to beat amid growth of middle-class income Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 7a272f0a-9740-51ff-88a7-8fa3bed77654

Author and economist Stephen Moore pushed back Wednesday against Democrats who claim only the rich benefit from President Trump’s policies.

Moore, a senior economics analyst at the Heritage Foundation, highlighted on “Fox & Friends” a new study that shows median incomes in the middle-class are rising much faster than they did under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

SANDERS UPS ANTE WITH HIGHER WEALTH TAX PROPOSAL THAN WARREN’S: ‘BILLIONAIRES SHOULD NOT EXIST’

Moore, who helped write the 2017 tax cuts, cited a report from the Census Bureau and said: “Since Donald Trump was elected and took office through July of 2019, median family incomes, middle-class incomes are up $4,100.”

“In the entire eight years that Obama was president, incomes only budged up about $1,000, so in one-third of the time, Trump has increased income by four times as much. We now have a median income of 65,000 dollars. That shows pretty clearly that the middle-class has been benefiting,” he added.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

In his decades in Congress and during both of his runs for the White House, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has railed against an American economic system that he says favors corporations and the rich, at the expense of the working class.

The release of the independent senator from Vermont’s ‘Tax on Extreme Wealth’ follows a similar plan from one of his top rivals for the 2020 Democratic nomination, fellow progressive and populist lawmaker Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

The Sanders campaign says their plan would impact approximately 180,000 households nationwide and would raise about $4.35 trillion in government revenue by the 2028 budget year.

Moore argued that Democrats are going to have a hard time proving to Americans that their economic policies will be better.

“If these numbers hold up, it’s going to be difficult for any Democrat to beat Donald Trump because he’s proven to be the blue-collar president,” Moore said.

He acknowledged, however, that there was a poor report Tuesday on U.S. manufacturing and exports.

The ISM September Manufacturing Index slipped to 47.8, down 1.3 percentage points from August. A read below 50 signals contraction. More worrisome is new export orders, which hit 41 percent, a 2.3 percentage point drop from last month.

Woman’s simple fridge hack goes viral

There’s apparently no such thing as being “too prepared” in all matters of meal prep, as evidenced by the thunderous applause one New York woman’s super-simple fridge organization hack has received on Facebook.

Sarah Hornung of Buffalo recently admitted that she is “shocked” at how viral her basic refrigerator organization tip has become during the back-to-school season. Two weeks ago, the school administrator and blogger behind The Eager Teacher shared a photo of her fridge door online, featuring clementines, string cheese, fruit snacks, carrots, grapes and more separated neatly in plastic quarts for easy, healthy snacking for her family of four.

“Sunday self-serve is ready for the week,” Hornung said of the snacks, which she said she always washes and preps before putting out.

CHICK-FIL-A NAMED CLEANEST FAST-FOOD RESTAURANT, BUT HAS SLOWEST DRIVE-THRU, NEW STUDIES SAY

“Self-serve for my kiddos means help yourself without asking and it’s always an okay snack (any time of day, bedtime snacks, etc.,)” the mom of two explained. “It also helps me when I’m packing lunches and snacks, or as a side dish when dinner doesn’t include something they will definitely eat or if we have a busy/late night.”

“There’s something about having things truly ready to grab that makes kids eat it. I could leave the baby carrots in a bag or leave the grapes on the stems but they wouldn’t eat it,” Hornung said.

In the days since, the teacher’s straightforward advice has since gone massively viral with over 84,000 likes, 32,000 comments and more than 115,000 shares on Facebook, not to mention over 2,900 “hearts” on Instagram. Many commenters agreed that they were inspired to copy the genius meal prep trick, or sounded off on how they similarly keep the kitchen organized for their own busy, healthy families.

“I love this! I have a big family, and we are always on the go! I might need to restock each night, but at least they’d know where to find healthy snacks all day!” one fan said.

“I do this and it works great…kids can pack their lunches,” another offered.

“As long as things are cleaned and cut up or prepared kids and even adults are more apt to [eat] more healthy snacks. Best thing to do!!” one chimed in.

Hornung said in an Oct. 1 interview that she can’t believe that her post has gone as far and wide as it has.

“I am shocked at how viral it became, but the more I read the comments from people, the more I understand it,” she told Today. “Everyone can relate to throwing out untouched produce at the end of the week and most parents find themselves in some kind of negotiation with kids over food on the regular.”

“It’s not an expensive or complicated hack. All you need is some old quart containers and your normal grocery haul,” the educator said.

Hornung also said she suspects her post “appealed to the masses” because it looked like a real-life family’s fridge, not a “picture-perfect” shot of expensive, fancy food like those sometimes seen on Instagram or Pinterest.

“I think it’s something that regardless of how old your kids are, what they like to eat or how much money you make, it is a doable idea. I think this is why it went viral,” Hornung mused.

Woman filmed clipping man’s toenails on train: ‘That’s both disgusting and adorable’

Love isn’t always pretty.

A disturbing video has surfaced that shows a man and a woman doing something arguably inappropriate on a train: The footage appears to show the woman trimming the man’s toenails in public, while he sits back and relaxes.

The strange video appeared on the Instagram page PassengerShaming, which documents the strange, disturbing, and sometimes gross things people do during their travels.

“Happy Monday!” the video was captioned, along with a hashtag reading “choochoo,” suggesting the act took place on a train.

Based on the responses, it’s pretty clear that social media users were not OK with the public grooming.

“Where are all the shavings and clippings going? I’m sure she has a tarp underneath them,” one user sarcastically stated.

Another user simply said, “That is disgusting.”

Surprisingly, there were others who seemed genuinely impressed, regarding the woman’s act as a display of affection. “I want a girl who will make me sandwiches and cut my toenails,” one person said, while another simply wrote, “Well that’s love right there.”

“That’s both disgusting and adorable at the same time,” someone else chimed in.

Of course, most seemed unimpressed by the apparent woman’s devotion and quite annoyed by the sight, with one user commenting, “Seriously I am so disturbed by how many people think this is ok. Why would you ever think clipping someone’s toenails on public transportation it ok?”

Another reply said, “No one ever needs to do this in public… ever.”

New Jersey reports first vaping-linked death, US toll rises to 14

New Jersey officials on Tuesday confirmed the state’s first vaping-related death, which involved an adult woman who died in August, marking at least the 14th such death in the U.S. since the outbreak began.

The woman, whose name and age were not revealed, lived in northern New Jersey, according to the health department’s press release.

There have been 14 confirmed and probable cases of serious lung injury in the state, in addition to 32 reports of severe lung illnesses currently under investigation by state officials. All cases involved residents between ages 15 and 51, with the majority being male patients.

“The New Jersey Department of Health is saddened to announce a death associated with this outbreak,” said Judith Perischilli, Department of Health acting commissioner, on Tuesday. “This death underscores the potential dangers associated with vaping.”

NEBRASKA SEES 1ST VAPING-LINKED DEATH

Nebraska also reported its first death linked to vaping this week. Officials there announced Monday that a resident over the age of 65 in the Douglas County area died in May. His family identified him as 68-year-old John Steffen, who began using e-cigarettes five years ago as a way to quit smoking.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) late last week described a possible link between the current outbreak of vaping-related lung injuries and the use of THC-containing vaping products.

The CDC’s findings indicated that out of 514 patients with suspected vaping-related illnesses, 77 reported that they had been using products containing THC, or using both nicotine- and THC-containing products.

But the exact cause of the current outbreak of vaping-related illnesses remains unknown. The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with state and local health agencies, are still investigating the 805 vaping-related lung illness cases reported across 46 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Long-lost 2,200-year-old temple of Pharaoh Ptolemy IV discovered

Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered a long-lost 2,200-year-old ancient temple linked to Pharaoh Ptolemy IV.

Ahram Online reports that the temple was found during work on a sewage drainage project in the village of Kom Shakau.

The ruins were discovered during drilling work in the village in early September, according to a Facebook post by Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities. Experts subsequently uncovered stone inscriptions featuring the name of Ptolemy IV. Images of animals and birds were also found on the temple walls.

The opening of the priest’s stone sarcophagus was broadcast by the Discovery Channel during “Expedition Unknown: Egypt Live,” a two-hour live event. Archaeologists discovered what they describe as an “exquisitely preserved” mummy inside the sealed sarcophagus, covered in gold banding.

The incredible find was made at Al-Ghorifa, a remote site about 165 miles south of Cairo. Located within the inner chambers of the burial site, experts accessed the sarcophagus via a network of ancient tunnels.

A mummy buried in southern Egypt more than 5,000 years ago has also revealed its grisly secrets, shedding new light on prehistoric embalming practices.

An ancient Egyptian gilded coffin has also been garnering plenty of attention recently. Egypt displayed the coffin from the first century B.C. on Tuesday, which New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art returned last week after U.S. investigators determined it to be a looted antiquity.

Hong Kong police accused of being ‘trigger-happy and nuts’ as crowds protest shooting of teen

A Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmaker is accusing the semi-autonomous region’s police of being “trigger-happy and nuts” after an officer shot a teenage protester at close range in the chest during demonstrations this week.

The blistering criticism comes as hundreds of people and classmates of 18-year-old Tsang Chi-kin rallied outside his school Wednesday, chanting anti-police slogans and demanding accountability. An officer fired at Tsang Tuesday after the teen struck him with a metal rod – making Tsang the first known victim of police gunfire since the protests began in June, the Associated Press reports.

“The Hong Kong police have gone trigger-happy and nuts,” pro-democracy lawmaker Claudia Mo said Wednesday.

“The sensible police response should have been to use a police baton or pepper spray, etc., to fight back,” Mo added, after viewing a video of the incident. “It wasn’t exactly an extreme situation and the use of a live bullet simply cannot be justified.”

Tsang is currently hospitalized and his condition was described by the government as stable on Wednesday.

Sitting crossed-legged, some of his supporters Wednesday held an arm across their chest below their left shoulder — the location of the teenager’s gunshot wound. One held a hand-written message condemning “thug police.”

Schoolmates told the Associated Press that Tsang loves basketball and was passionate about the pro-democracy cause. A student who wore a Guy Fawkes mask and declined to be named because of fear of retribution told the Associated Press that Tsang was “like a big brother” to him and other junior students.

“During the protests, we would feel safe if he is around because he was always the first to charge forward and would protect us when we were in danger,” the student said.

“I vividly remember him saying that he would rather die than be arrested. What an awful twist of fate that it was he, of all people, who was shot by the police.”

NEWT GINGRICH: HONG KONG FREEDOM FIGHTERS NEED AND DESERVE US SUPPORT

Hong Kong is a former British colony that’s been part of China since 1997 and which Beijing says benefits from autonomy, crediting a “one country, two systems” approach.

The structure allows the city certain democratic rights that are not afforded to people on the mainland — but, in recent years, some in Hong Kong have accused the Communist Party-ruled central government of slowly stripping their freedoms.

Hong Kong police, who have defended the officer’s use of force against Tsang as “reasonable and lawful,” says the teenager has been arrested despite being hospitalized and that authorities will decide later whether to press charges.

Police Commissioner Stephen Lo said late Tuesday that the officer had feared for his life and made “a split-second” decision to fire a single shot at close range.

Chinese state media also defended the officer’s actions, with the Xinhua News Agency publishing a commentary early Wednesday calling them “totally legal, legitimate and appropriate,” according to the South China Morning Post.

“The ‘black terror’ that has lasted for more than three months is close to craziness,” it reportedly added. “To stop the violence and curb disorder, we must make prominent the power of the rule of law, cut the tumor of violence and prosecute all rioters in accordance with the law as soon as possible.”

Yet the warning appeared to fall flat Wednesday as dozens of black-clad demonstrators also protested at a luxury mall in Kowloon district. Elsewhere, more than 1,000 office workers skipped their lunch to join an impromptu march in the city’s business district against the police shooting.

British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab criticized the shooting as “disproportionate” and some U.S. lawmakers also joined in the condemnation.

The Chinese foreign ministry office in Hong Kong slammed British and American politicians and accused them of condoning violence and crime. It called the rioters the “greatest threat to Hong Kong and the common enemy of the international community.”

Meanwhile, an Indonesian journalist who was shot in the face with a police projectile on Sunday has been left blinded in one eye, her lawyer told the Hong Kong Free Press.

“Doctors treating Ms [Veby Mega] Indah have today informed her that regrettably the injury she received as a result of being shot by police, will result in permanent blindness in her right eye,” Michael Vidler was quoted as saying. “She was informed that the pupil of her eye was ruptured by the force of the impact. The exact percentage of permanent impairment can only be assessed after surgery.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
