Colorado hunter survives mountain lion attack at Big Horn Park, suffers only minor injuries

A Colorado hunter survived a mountain lion attack by doing everything right when fighting back against the animal, Parks and Wildlife officials said.

ILLINOIS PASSES BIPARTISAN LAW TO ALLOW HUNTING EDUCATION CLASSES IN SCHOOL CURRICULUM

The hunter was scouting for elk around 9 p.m. at the Big Horn Park area northwest of Denver on August 10 when the mountain lion attacked him, Sky Hi News reported.

According to reports, the hunter was backing away after spotting the animal when he tripped and the mountain lion attacked. The hunter managed to stab the animal in the face with a pocketknife and was able to get free. The mountain lion then ran off.

A necropsy was performed, revealing the mountain lion only had grass in its stomach, meaning it was likely hungry at the time of the attack.

A representative for Colorado Parks and Wildlife was not immediately available to provide an update.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may never get back together after Kaitlynn Carter hookup: report

The drama continues: Sources claim that Miley Cyrus wanted to repair her marriage with Liam Hemsworth following their separation, but now that she’s flaunted her rebound romance with Kaitlynn Carter, it may never happen.

“Miley is very close with Kaitlynn. It’s romantic, but also a friendship,” a source told People. “They are both going through similar stuff right now and are bonding over it.”

The insider said that while Cyrus, 26, and Carter, 30, have bonded over their recent breakups, Cyrus “isn’t 100 percent happy” and misses her Aussie estranged husband.

BRODY JENNER’S FRIEND THINKS MILEY CYRUS, KAITLYNN CARTER ROMANCE IS A RUSE

“They had many happy days together in L.A. and now Liam is not around. It’s hard for her to be back in L.A. without him,” the source admitted. “This is not the situation that she wanted. She hoped they could figure things out.”

As previously reported, Cyrus and Carter have packed on the PDA ever since they split from their respective partners: Cyrus with 29-year-old Hemsworth and Carter with Brody Jenner.

Unfortunately for Cyrus, sources close to Hemsworth say they may never, ever get back together because he’s so embarrassed by her behavior.

BRODY JENNER PAL BRANDON THOMAS LEE MOCKS MILEY CYRUS, KAITLYNN CARTER HOOKUP

“Liam is sick of being humiliated. And the way she’s acting, she’s doing an excellent job of making sure he won’t go back,” an insider told NW magazine (via The Daily Mail).

“As soon as they tied the knot, she went back to her old ways … partying,” a source alleged. “They might have been on and off in the past, but this time it’s really it.”

MILEY CYRUS GETS REAL ABOUT MARRIAGE TO LIAM HEMSWORTH

Of course, Cyrus’ camp has reportedly been claiming that it’s actually Hemsworth whose hard-partying (including alleged drinking and pill use, which she references in new song “Slide Away”) led to the end of their eight-month marriage.

Cyrus and Hemsworth tied the knot in December 2018 after losing their Malibu home in a wildfire.

They announced their separation after eight months of marriage and more than a decade of on-again-off-again romance earlier this month — hours after photos were published of the “We Can’t Stop” singer kissing Carter while vacationing in Italy.

MILEY CYRUS DANCES IN THONG BIKINI ON ITALIAN VACATION

Cyrus’ rep said in a statement: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of the animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

MILEY CYRUS SLAMS LIAM HEMSWORTH BREAKUP RUMORS IN TWEET CELEBRATING DATING ANNIVERSARY

She and Hemsworth reportedly haven’t spoken since her publicist announced the separation. Hemsworth released a statement of his own, writing on Instagram, “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”

Fan who scored Oakland A’s contract with viral 96-mph pitch makes professional debut

The baseball fan who landed a contract with the Oakland A’s, after his 96-mph pitch at a speed-pitch radar booth at Coors Field went viral, brought the heat in his professional debut.

Nathan Patterson, 23, took the mound Thursday for the first time as a minor leaguer and whiffed all three batters he faced, USA Today reported Sunday.

“I’m not gonna lie, the nerves were flowing until I threw strike one,” Patterson said on Instagram the next day. “After that, I took a big deep breathe (sic) and realized all the hard work over the last year has prepared me for this moment.”

The A’s took notice of Patterson’s video of his 96-mph pitch at a Colorado Rockies game July 15. The viral video attracted more than 700,000 views.

In a month’s time, Patterson has gone from a software salesman who believed his playing days had ended in high school to major league prospect, according to the Kansas City Star.

Steve Hilton: Trump-haters hype up a recession while the real economy is booming

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6074242640001_6074242033001-vs Steve Hilton: Trump-haters hype up a recession while the real economy is booming Steve Hilton fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/us/economy fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc e0fb5e3b-8197-59df-bb04-831554428905 article

President Trump made the economic case for his re-election in classic style the other night during his rally in New Hampshire.

“You have no choice but to vote for me because your 401(k)s will be down the tubes,” He said. “Everything’s gonna be down the tubes. So whether you love me or hate me, you got to vote for me.”

But according to the people who hate the president, it’s all going down the tubes now. On MSNBC, various analysts said the following last week:

TRUMP BRUSHES OFF CONCERNS ABOUT RECESSION, TOUTS STRONG ECONOMY

“Trump waking up this morning to a trending hashtag he was likely desperate to change – #TrumpRecession. It came alongside headlines warning that the economy is in distress, maybe even headed for a nosedive, which Trump’s own aides admit could spell political disaster for the president and could pose the gravest threat yet to his re-election prospects.”

“I call this another Trump slump.”

“A dark cloud has taken its new place on the horizon as potential big trouble for the Trump economy.”

“The threat of recession is real.”

It’s pretty obvious that these establishment Trump-hating hysterics — all of them, of course, living comfortable coastal lives — actually want a recession because they think that’s the best way to get rid of Trump. At least one of them is honest about it.

“I’ve been saying for about two years  — that I hope we have a recession, and people get mad at me,” said Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Yeah, I wonder why, Bill. Perhaps because in a recession, real people – working Americans – get hurt, not you and your rich friends in the establishment state media, of course. They’d be reporting on a recession, not living it.

We saw all this talk of recession last week, not because of anything that happened in the real economy, but because of the fake economy — the one conjured up by panicky idiots and algorithms on Wall Street.

In case you’ve never met any of these financial whiz kids, let me tell you who we’re dealing with here. Let’s put it this way: These Wall Street types, they’re not exactly the kind of people you want your children turning into.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

They’re really not very smart. They’re certainly not thoughtful or kind. They’re often poorly-educated, mostly ignorant and always self-interested and greedy.

Last week, they got the whole world in a panic for no good reason. Thanks a lot, guys. (And yes, they are mostly guys.) They hear a rumor, massively overreact to a single piece of data, push some buttons and then follow each other like demented sheep.

The worst thing is, their panicky idiocy can have real-world effects. In the end, the economy is not some abstract thing. It is a human thing, the collective result of countless human decisions. Should I buy that new piece of furniture? Should I hire that extra worker? Should I open that new factory? All of these human decisions boil down to confidence about the future.

So actually, the Wall Street idiots and the establishment state media literally could cause a recession just by going on about it. The smartest thing I heard last week on fear of recession came from Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America — someone who probably knows what he’s talking about. He blamed international factors for the turmoil in the financial markets and pointed out some basic facts about the real economy.

“The average worker is working, getting paid more,” Moynihan said. “That’s going to translate into good credit performance on the consumer side. The real risk for the U.S. economy is if the consumers slow down.”

The most important point Moynihan made was when he said this: “We have nothing to fear about a recession right now except for fear of a recession.”

That is exactly right. We must not let the panicky wall street wheeler-dealers and the Trump-hating establishment state media talk us into a recession. We must keep the focus on the real economy, not the fake economy.

Consumer spending is two-thirds of the economy — and guess what, in July, it didn’t go down, it went up. As the Wall Street Journal noted on Friday: “The robust report — the strongest reading since March — is a positive signal for the U.S. economy.”

The United States’ largest employer, Walmart — its latest sales were not down, but up. It revised its profit forecast not down, but up. Forecasting firm, Macroeconomic Advisors, just revised its economic growth projections — no, not down, but up. And the Atlanta Fed just revised its economic growth projections — again, not down, but up.

In the real economy, the Trump administration’s pro-enterprise agenda is working. Lower taxes and less regulation gave businesses the confidence to invest. That means more innovation and higher worker productivity. That means more jobs are created, and workers are paid more because they’re producing more. The latest jobs report saw 164,000 jobs added in July, bringing the labor force to 163.4 million – a record high.

With President Trump, we have the lowest unemployment for 50 years, and the lowest on record for African-American and Hispanic workers. And just published — the lowest summer youth unemployment in 53 years. Yes, the lowest since 1966.

Here’s the bottom line: The Trump economy is fundamentally strong and delivering good jobs and higher earnings for the working Americans who suffered in the years of stagnation.

On workers’ pay, new data the other week showed that earnings rose 4.5 percent in 2017 and 5 percent in 2018, even higher than previously reported – and miles ahead of inflation. While the Trump-haters pray for a recession and Wall Street plays around with the fake economy, the real economy is booming.

So is everything just fine and dandy, with nothing to worry about. Can President Trump and his team just sit back and ride the economic wave all the way to reelection next year?

Not at all.

There’s no question that the rest of the world is doing poorly. China, Germany and the UK — their economies are all heading in the wrong direction. So what should President Trump do to keep our economy moving ahead?

It’s no use just yelling at the Fed — there’s a limit to what they can do. But there are two big things the president can do, on his own initiative, without Congress or anyone else.

More from Opinion

First is something we told you about in June, a positive and practical idea from Grover Norquist, founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. Get rid of the tax on inflation, and you’ll see trillions of dollars redeployed to highest and best use,” he said in an interview on “The Next Revolution. “And people have opportunities to do something with capital that’s been liberated.”

The second big idea is on trade and China. Look, I’ve been as tough as anyone on China, and as you know I completely support what the president has been doing. He’s the first western leader in 50 years to stand up to China, and it’s working.

But there’s nothing wrong with a tactical pause to get the best possible economic climate for the re-election campaign. Make a deal now, and then hit them hard after the election.

Here’s the bottom line: The Trump economy is fundamentally strong and delivering good jobs and higher earnings for the working Americans who suffered in the years of stagnation. The biggest threat to our economy comes from the loony left economic policies of the Democrats, which would scare off investment and bring back stagnation.

So the president and his team should take the initiative and take positive and practical steps to boost the economy now: index capital gains and a temporary trade deal with China.

Trump rages at ‘unstable’ Scaramucci after threat to organize ex-Cabinet officials against him

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6072921506001_6072910015001-vs Trump rages at ‘unstable’ Scaramucci after threat to organize ex-Cabinet officials against him Judson Berger fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 57a103d9-e120-5da8-b661-be39cfeefe71

President Trump lashed out anew Monday at aide-turned-nemesis Anthony Scaramucci after the former White House communications director threatened to cobble together a coalition of former Cabinet officials to speak out against the president as part of an apparent bid to find an alternative Republican nominee in 2020.

Accelerating a remarkable conversion from short-lived White House insider to brash detractor, Scaramucci said in an interview Monday morning that he wants to find a “viable alternative” and is assembling a “team” of like-minded people toward that end.

SCARAMUCCI ESCALATES WAR OF WORDS WITH TRUMP

“I’ve got to get some of these former Cabinet officials in unity to speak up about it. They know it’s a crisis,” he said, predicting such a coalition would go public by the fall.

Trump, presumably watching the CNN interview, called the “Mooch” an “unstable ‘nut job,'” before mocking him over his notoriously brief stint at the White House.

“I barely knew him until his 11 days of gross incompetence-made a fool of himself, bad on TV. Abused staff,” he said, while taking some personal shots at Scaramucci’s marriage (he and wife Deidre Ball are back together, after calling off a divorce announced in 2017).

“He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around. Now Fake News puts him on like he was my buddy!” Trump tweeted.

FOX NEWS POLL: BIDEN LEADS PRIMARY FIELD, TRUMP TRAILS IN HEAD-TO-HEADS

The insults are in keeping with an ever-escalating feud between the two men, after Scaramucci publicly turned on the president in recent weeks – calling him a “jacka–” who may drop out of the 2020 race, predicting a “reset” in the GOP and reportedly chatting with “Never Trump” pundit Bill Kristol about trying to find a replacement on top of the ticket.

“You know that the situation is unstable. You know that the president is off his rocker,” he told CNN on Monday, while denying any personal interest in launching such a candidacy.

It’s unclear whether his apparent discussions with former Cabinet officials will materialize into a coalition – and whether such a coalition would make any difference in the GOP presidential primary process, where so far only former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld has announced a challenge.

But while Trump overwhelmingly dominates GOP primary polling and continues to enjoy support from Republican Party leadership and top officials, hypothetical polling in a general election shows Trump trailing.

The latest Fox News Poll showed him trailing all the top Democratic candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden by 12 points.

Scaramucci cited the polling and warnings about a recession in suggesting Monday that Trump could be vulnerable.

Trump on Sunday, though, brushed off the economic concerns, telling reporters: “I don’t think we’re having a recession. … We’re doing tremendously well. Our consumers are rich. I gave a tremendous tax cut and they’re loaded up with money.”

Prince Andrew ‘appalled’ by Jeffrey Epstein claims despite video of royal leaving Manhattan mansion in 2010

Britain’s Prince Andrew on Monday tried to bat back renewed scrutiny of his longtime friendship with accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, despite new video showing the royal at the disgraced financier’s Manhattan mansion in 2010 — two years after Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution involving a minor and was forced to register as a sex offender.

Epstein, 66, hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Aug. 10 while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy, the New York City medical examiner said in a report released Friday. The official results followed a week of speculation about the shocking death at the federal facility in Lower Manhattan. Epstein had pleaded not guilty to the latest charges and was being held without bail at the time of his death.

In the wake of the suicide, concerning allegations about the Duke of York’s relationship with Epstein have reemerged, including accusations made by Virginia Giuffre, who claims Epstein paid her to have sex with the prince nearly two decades ago, when she was 17.

EPSTEIN’S ATTORNEYS ‘NOT SATISFIED’ WITH AUTOPSY RESULTS THAT CONCLUDED FINANCIER DIED BY HANGING

In a statement released Monday, Buckingham Palace said Andrew was “appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes.”

“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent,” the Palace said.

The statement was released after the Mail on Sunday newspaper obtained a Dec. 6, 2010, video appearing to show Andrew inside Epstein’s opulent Manhattan home as the prince waves goodbye to a young woman.

The video was recorded two years after Epstein’s controversial deal in which he pleaded guilty to a Florida state felony charge of prostitution involving a minor. The terms of the deal included generous work release conditions for Epstein.

The duke was also photographed with Epstein in 2010 in New York’s Central Park after Epstein had finished serving his 18-month prison sentence. The photos sparked controversy at the time and led Andrew to quit his role as a UK trade envoy in 2011, according to Sky News.

PAINTING OF BILL CLINTON IN BLUE DRESS AND HEELS WAS INSIDE JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S NYC MANSION: REPORT

A document dump on the Friday directly preceding Epstein’s death came after a federal appeals court ordered the release of court papers in a defamation lawsuit Giuffre brought against Epstein’s former girlfriend and alleged “madam,” Ghislaine Maxwell. The civil case was eventually settled.

Included in the documents, however, are portions of a deposition from Johanna Sjoberg, who said she was 21 years old in 2001 when Andrew grabbed her breast at Epstein’s mansion in New York.

Sjoberg testified the incident was sparked when “someone” suggested those gathered take a picture, at which point Sjoberg said she and Maxwell went to a closet and grabbed a puppet of Andrew.

“They told us to go get on the couch,” she said in the 2016 deposition. “And so Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put the puppet, the puppet on her lap. And so then I sat on Andrew’s lap, and, I believe on my own volition, and they took the puppet’s hands and put it on Virginia’s breast, and so Andrew put his on mine.”

She added: “I knew it was Prince Andrew because I knew him as a person.”

The court papers also include a photograph that has been in circulation since 2015 showing Andrew with his arm around Giuffre’s bare waist in London in 2001. Giuffre said she was 17 at the time the photo was taken.

Photo from 2001 that was included in court files released last week shows Prince Andrew with his arm around the waist of 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre who says Jeffrey Epstein paid her to have sex with the prince. Andrew has denied the charges. In the background is Epstein’s girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. (U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals)

Buckingham Palace has previously denied allegations the prince had sex with Giuffre, and told The Sun that Andrew was not a party to the U.S. proceedings in which his name had appeared and denied any illegality had occurred.

“Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue,” the palace said in a statement at the time.

Epstein’s death caused public and official outrage over how such a high-profile prisoner could have gone unmonitored.

Fox News’ Tamara Gitt, Robert Gearty, Nicole Darrah and Samuel Chamberlain, and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Heather Mac Donald: Trump is not the one dividing us by race. His rivals are obsessed with ‘white privilege’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6073947641001_6073946933001-vs Heather Mac Donald: Trump is not the one dividing us by race.

Long before the El Paso massacre, President Trump’s political opponents accused him of sowing “division” with his “racist language.” Mr. Trump “exploits race,” “uses race for his gain,” is engaged in a “racially divisive reprise” of his 2016 campaign, stokes “racial resentments,” and puts “race at the fore,” the New York Times has reported over the past several months.

Yet Mr. Trump rarely uses racial categories in his speech or his tweets. It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely characterize individuals and groups by race and issue race-based denunciations of large parts of the American polity.

Some examples: “As race dominates the political conversation, 10 white Democratic candidates will take the stage” (the Washington Post); Mr. Trump’s rally audiences are “overwhelmingly white” (multiple sources); your son’s “whiteness is what protects him from not [sic] being shot” by the police ( Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ); white candidates need to be conscious of “white privilege” (South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg ); “white supremacy manifests itself” in the criminal-justice, immigration and health-care systems ( Sen. Cory Booker ); “ Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri” ( Sen. Elizabeth Warren ); whiteness is “the very core” of Mr. Trump’s power, whereas his “predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness” (Ta-Nehisi Coates in the Atlantic).

Liberal opinion deems such rhetoric fair comment, even obvious truth, not “racially divisive.” America’s universities deserve credit for this double standard. Identity politics dominate higher education: Administrators, students and faculty obsessively categorize themselves and each other by race. “White privilege,” often coupled with “toxic masculinity,” is the focus of freshmen orientations and an ever-growing array of courses. Any institutional action that affects a “person of color” is “about race.” If a black professor doesn’t get tenure, he’s a victim of discrimination; a white professor is presumed to be unqualified.

State records reveal extent of botched abortions, as GOP reps push ‘born-alive’ protection law

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6051020570001_6050909958001-vs State records reveal extent of botched abortions, as GOP reps push ‘born-alive’ protection law Fred Lucas fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox news fnc/politics fnc article 32ad16c2-f889-5575-a6dc-e7c4066f51b4

At least 40 babies were born alive after botched abortions across three states since 2016, according to state health data that offers a glimpse into the extent of an issue that lawmakers have fiercely debated in recent months.

The data on babies surviving abortions is compiled on a mandatory basis by only a handful of states. What is available reflects a scenario that is rare but frequent enough to prompt proposals at the state and federal level for born-alive infant protection laws – especially in the wake of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s controversial comments on the subject earlier this year.

VA GOV FACES BACKLASH FOR COMMENTS ON 3RD-TRIMESTER ABORTION BILL

The most recent information comes from Minnesota, which reported in June that three infants were born alive in 2018 after induced termination of a pregnancy. That brings the state total to 11 since 2016. Arizona reported 10 in 2017 and Florida had 19 such instances since 2017. Nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 143 cases between 2003 and 2014 of infants born after attempted abortions, though those figures may be incomplete.

Three other states—Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas—have laws requiring data on infants born after botched abortions, but either have reported no cases or have not yet begun compiling the information. Arkansas just passed such a law in 2019. In most reported cases, the babies do not survive beyond 24 hours.

But the reports offer insight into a subject that captured attention in Congress this year.

House Republicans have unsuccessfully tried with 80 separate unanimous consent requests to get a floor vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Mo. Further, 197 Republicans and three Democrats signed on to a discharge petition to have the bill voted on by the full Democrat-controlled House. The Democratic minority also blocked a Senate version of the bill sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb.

Two state-level developments, meanwhile, fired up the pro-life movement over the matter.

First, in January, New York state enacted legislation allowing abortion up to the point of birth. After a similar bill was proposed in the Virginia legislature, Democratic Gov. Northam was accused of advocating infanticide when he said: “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Northam, a pediatric neurologist, countered that he’s devoted his life to caring for children and said “any insinuation otherwise is shameful and disgusting,” as his office accused critics of trying to “extrapolate” his comments “in bad faith.”

But the controversy has lived on.

President Trump brought up the Northam comments at a rally Thursday in Manchester, N.H.

“Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late-term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb, right up until the moment of birth, and, in the case of the Virginia governor—he’s having a rough, rough time,” Trump said. “The doctor talks to the mother. The baby is now born … and then they decide whether or not to execute the baby. That is why I have asked Congress to prohibit extreme late-term abortion, is because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift of God.”

Arizona had the largest number in the shortest amount of time, with the state’s Department of Health Services reporting: “From August 2017 to December 2017, 10 abortion reports involving fetus or embryo delivered alive were submitted to ADHS along with the physician’s statement documenting the measures taken to preserve the life of the fetus or embryo.”

Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration reported two infants born alive after an induced termination of pregnancy so far in 2019. The state reported six cases in 2018 and 11 cases in 2017.

The Minnesota Department of Health data shows three cases of “abortion procedures resulting in a born-alive infant were reported” in both 2017 and 2018, and five in 2016.

DEMS BLOCK ‘BORN-ALIVE’ BILL

Michigan has reported zero so far. Oklahoma is unclear. Its report earlier this year on the “number of abortions resulting in an infant born alive” has information left blank, but says, “Cell is suppressed to maintain confidentiality of surrounding entries.”

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services reported zero cases of infants born after an attempted abortion. Texas’ reports, however, are associated only with health complications with the mother, said Connor Semelsberger, legislative assistant with the pro-life Family Research Council.

“These numbers are in just three states, which means it’s a lot higher than we’d ever suspect,” Semelsberger told Fox News. “Arizona is the outlier. They’ve had good reporting. This is a state that takes this seriously. Arizona really is enforcing the laws on the books.”

Semelsberger noted that legislation protecting babies born alive passed with strong bipartisan support in battleground states such as Minnesota and Michigan, which “shows real contrast with the Democratic Party at the national level and at the state level.”

Dr. Diane Horvath, a fellow at Physicians for Reproductive Health, argued that anti-abortion figures are “manipulating” the complexities of abortion.

“These data are likely reflecting cases in which a woman has a wanted pregnancy but is unable to continue it, where she makes the decision with her doctor to end the pregnancy through induction of labor,” Horvath told Fox News in a written statement. “Examples may include a woman who has life-threatening bleeding before her baby is viable, who was in a car accident and has severe injuries that would require labor to be induced, or who received a fetal diagnosis that was incompatible with life.”

The CDC began requesting information from the states as a result of a 2002 law, when a bipartisan majority passed a version of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that President George W. Bush signed into law, defining a baby who survives a botched abortion as a human being that must be cared for accordingly under the law. However, the law carries no punishment for violations. The GOP proposals this year would put teeth behind the law, including potential prison time.

The CDC’s information is based on requested voluntary information from states, and the CDC report states, “it is possible that this number (143) underestimates the total number of deaths involving induced termination.”

California man claims he was beaten at bar after men confused him with child predator suspect

A California man says he was beaten at a bar last week after a group of men confused him with a child predator sought by police.

Kevin Martin, 34, told KTLA he was outside Slick’s Billiards in Norco, a city roughly 50 miles west of Los Angeles, on Thursday night when two men approached him and accused Martin of being the person wanted by police for allegedly making sexual comments to an 11-year-old girl in Corona in May.

One of the men “had his phone on him and he said, ‘This is you, isn’t it? We don’t allow your kind here,'” Martin told KTLA. “The other guy starts pushing me and says, ‘You know, I got a daughter.'”

Martin apparently looks similar to the 20-something male sought earlier this year by the Corona Police Department. Investigators put out a computer-generated composite image online that “depicts the general description of the suspect,” and the men seemingly thought Martin was that suspect.

The men allegedly strangled Martin and punched him at least 20 times, and Martin claims one of them told him “I kill people like this.”

The police department — which did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment — said Martin is not the man sought in the case from May.

Martin even reportedly saw the similarities between his appearance and that of the suspect’s — and commented on the department’s social media post saying he looked similar to the man and wanted to clear his name, according to the news outlet.

Anyone with information on the actual suspect wanted by police, described as thin with black hair and brown eyes, and who might own a golden retriever, is urged to contact the Corona Police Department at 951-736-2330, extension 3.
