Varney calls 2020 Dems ‘grossly hypocritical’ after Forbes releases net worth of candidates

Westlake Legal Group varney Varney calls 2020 Dems 'grossly hypocritical' after Forbes releases net worth of candidates fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/fox-nation Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 5797031a-b78d-5f82-906b-d8488cfdce1f

Fox Business host Stuart Varney called out the top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates on his Fox Nation show “My Take” Friday, after a Forbes report listed the candidates’ current net worth — all in the multi-millions.

“How many times have we heard presidential candidates rail against the rich, how wicked they are, how unfair the whole capitalist system is. If you’ve got money, they’re gonna take it off you. What gross hypocrisy. All of the Democratic front runners are multimillionaires,” Varney said.

According to Forbes, Elizabeth Warren has a listed net worth of $12 million, with Joe Biden at $9 million, followed by Kamala Harris with $6 million, and Bernie Sanders with $2.5 million.

“They’re rich by any standard,” said the Fox Business host. ” And none of these four made their money in business. They’re government people and they want to run the government and take more money from people like you.”

JOE BIDEN MAKING MILLIONS, LIVING IN LAVISH HOMES SINCE LEAVING OFFICE: REPORT

LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND SOCIALIST: BERNIE SANDERS HAS 3 HOUSES, MAKES MILLIONS

Later in the segment, Varney went through each candidate, calling out their hypocrisy as he discussed their policies and compared them to the candidates’ personal financial statuses.

“It is Senator Warren who wants every big company to get a license from the government before they can do business. That’s okay with her.  Senator Warren made her money while working for a nonprofit — Harvard University,” Varney said.

“It is Senator Sanders who used to rant against the millionaires and billionaires but since he made his millions as a writer and real estate investor, he now only rants against billionaires.

“It is Joe Biden who calls himself “middle-class Joe” — a nine million dollar net worth puts him firmly in the upper class. And Senator Kamala Harris, she married a wealthy lawyer in 2014. As Forbes puts it, ‘she brought the clout and he brought the money’.”

The next time a Democratic candidate rants about “income inequality, taxing the rich, and reforming capitalism,” Varney said, he will have just the response.

VARNEY: HISTORY IS UNFOLDING BEFORE OUR EYES IN HONG KONG

“Sell your houses Bernie, and give your profit to the poor. Write a check to the treasury, Joe, because you used a tax loophole to get rich. Pay the wealth tax, Senator Warren, it’s your proposal. And Senator Harris – you own houses in Washington DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Do you need three?

“They will do none of the above,” the host said as he wrapped up his comments. “Rich socialists rarely do – it’s your money that they really want.”

Stuart Varney on Hong Kong protests: History is unfolding before our eyes

Westlake Legal Group HongKong081319 Stuart Varney on Hong Kong protests: History is unfolding before our eyes fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/opinion fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/fox-nation Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 5eccb8b4-731d-558e-bf29-900b62acd001

Fox Business host Stuart Varney called recent events in Hong Kong “extraordinary” as he discussed the violent protests that have overtaken many parts of the city.

“I can’t remember the last time where we saw a world event of this magnitude unfold in real-time on television… it is a major event,” Varney said.

For more than two months, Hong Kong has seen mass protests. Recent demonstrations have called for an independent inquiry into the city’s police and its alleged abuse of power.

Police have been seen clashing with the protestors and firing off tear gas, while Chinese paramilitary forces have assembled across the border in the city of Shenzhen for exercises that some see as a threat to crack down on the protesters.

TRUMP SAYS CHINA ‘MOVING TROOPS’ TO HONG KONG BORDER AS POLICE CLASH WITH PROTESTERS

At one point during the protests, two American flags were spotted as demonstrators marched proudly down a popular Hong Kong street.

“Think how provocative that was to the communist authorities who are trying to suppress these demonstrations,” Varney said on his Fox Nation series “My Take.” “The American flag is like red rag to a bull. It is an invitation to clamp down on the protests and we saw it live in real-time as it was unfolding.”

Varney explained the ramifications — financial and otherwise — that could result from the Hong Kong government’s inability to restore peace.

“You shut Hong Kong down,” he said, “and you are snuffing out what had been a bastion of liberty, free speech and the rule of law.”

David Webb on school decision to cover George Washington mural: ‘Something more dangerous is going on here’

Radio personality and the Fox Nation host of “Reality Check,” David Webb said that those that voted in favor of covering a controversial 1936 George Washington mural at a high school that includes images of slavery and the killing of a Native American are attempting to “rewrite their own version of history.”

On Tuesday, The San Francisco school board voted 4-3 to cover up — but not remove — the mural. The 13-panel “Life of Washington” will be preserved but covered by panels that show “the heroism of people of color in America, how we have fought against, and continue to battle discrimination, racism, hatred and poverty.”

Appearing on “Outnumbered Overtime,” Wednesday, Webb called the decision to cover up the mural an “act of cowardice” and said he believes that artwork could potentially do “a better job of teaching history to the students than these teachers.”

NEWT GINGRICH: THE SPIRIT OF FASCISTIC BOOK BURNING HAS ENTERED THE AMERICAN SYSTEM

“This is someone who painted what was real and they’re covering up history. It’s an insult to art, it’s an insult to education, it’s an insult to telling history for what it is,” he said.

Webb reiterated his dissatisfaction with the decision and said he was worried about what it represents.

“There is something more dangerous here. If you remove or eliminate or obfuscate the truth you can create your own version of it and that’s what’s going on in a very liberal environment in San Francisco where they want to create a new history.”

Tomi Lahren slams California’s ‘felon-friendly’ laws after ex-con’s alleged deadly stabbing spree

Westlake Legal Group Tomi_Lahren_Final_Thoughts_ENDFRAME Tomi Lahren slams California's 'felon-friendly' laws after ex-con's alleged deadly stabbing spree fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 08bcd079-3601-5e7a-807e-f4bc9c46b457

Tomi Lahren expressed outrage following last week’s stabbings in Southern California that left four dead, and two in critical condition after a robbery turned deadly.

The host of Fox Nation’s “First & Final Thoughts” said Friday she blames California’s “felon-friendly” laws for allowing “a known gang member with a violent record to be out on our streets.”

Zachary Castaneda, armed with “machete knives,” allegedly stabbed a woman at an insurance business, two men at the Garden Grove apartment complex where he lived, a man at a gas station, a 7-Eleven security guard and a Subway employee, police said.

According to Garden Grove Police, the 33-year-old suspect was out on bail at the time of the attacks and had previously served time for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute while armed with an assault weapon.

WHAT TO WATCH FROM TOMI LAHREN ON FOX NATION

Orange County court records also show he was free on a $20,000 bond for carrying a concealed knife, along with drug charges, at the time of the stabbing spree.

Lahren attacked California’s “felon-coddling” laws for allowing dangerous criminals back on the streets in an effort to reduce the state’s prison population.

FOX NATION DEBUTS AMERICAN JUSTICE MONTH 

“The death, violence, and terror caused by this man is the fault of this man but those actions were aided and abetted by California’s moronic and deadly felon-coddling laws,” said Lahren.

She cited Assembly Bill 109 which she claimed diverts people convicted of certain classes of “less serious” felonies from state prison to local county jails where they are, in many cases, released swiftly.

Prior to this latest incident, Castaneda was sentenced to four years on 14 different convictions but was released before serving his full term.

“Let’s think critically here, said Lahren. “How does someone with 14 convictions only get sentenced to four years then have that reduced to two years and then be out on bail after even more infractions?”

“You can thank a collection of BAD policies,” said the Fox Nation host.

TOMI LAHREN: CALIFORNIA CREATES HOMELESS ENCAMPMENTS ON WHEELS

“California, are you starting to see the mess and carnage that is created when you place the warm and fuzzy rehabilitation dream above the safety and security of residents?”

Garden Grove Police chief Tom DaRé echoed the same sentiment.

“This person should have been in prison, and not allowed to be in our community committing these violent acts. As a police chief, I implore our policymakers to reevaluate their policies on criminal justice,” he said.

“This isn’t just a California problem,” Lahren said. “Don’t forget the bipartisan First Step Act, which has already released hundreds locked up for weapons charges, sexual crimes and a few dozen for homicide, back into our streets.”

“Wake up. Enough is enough. It’s time for justice to be served, full term.”

Jeffrey Epstein dead: Timeline of sexual abuse allegations and related legal cases

Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing dozens of girls, was found dead early Saturday morning in his Manhattan jail cell.

The initial call to the jail was cardiac arrest. There was no immediate confirmation on how he died, but multiple reports said Epstein died by suicide.

Epstein’s attorney Martin Weinberg told Fox News on Saturday that he could not “confirm the rumor” that his client had killed himself.

Here is a timeline of the Epstein case leading up to his eventual death:

March 2005 – A 14-year-old girl and her parents report that Jeffrey Epstein molested her at a mansion in Palm Beach. She said a female acquaintance and classmate at Royal Palm Beach High School had taken her to the house to give him a massage in exchange for money.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN FOUND DEAD IN MANHATTAN JAIL CELL; MULTIPLE REPORTS CLAIM DEATH BY SUICIDE

April 2005 – Palm Beach police begin trash pulls at Epstein’s home, discovering a telephone message for Epstein with the girl’s name on it, and a time that matched the time that she told police she was there. They find the names and phone numbers of other girls on message slips in his trash.

October 2005 – With the police probe in full swing, one of Epstein’s assistants calls one of the girls just as she is being questioned by police. Investigators begin interviewing more girls, as well as Epstein’s butlers, who tell them that Epstein had frequent visits from girls throughout the day. On Oct. 20, they execute a search warrant at his house on El Brillo Way in Palm Beach.

May 2006 – Police sign a probable cause affidavit charging Epstein and two of his assistants with multiple counts of unlawful sex acts with a minor. The Palm Beach state attorney, Barry Krischer, instead refers the case to a grand jury.

June 2006 – The grand jury, after hearing from only one girl, returns an indictment of one count of solicitation of prostitution. The charge does not reflect that the victim in question and others were minors.

July 2006 – Epstein’s powerhouse legal team tries to negotiate a deal with the State Attorney’s Office. Lawyers discuss a deferred prosecution in which Epstein would enter a pretrial intervention program and serve no jail time.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ALLEGED SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIM NAMED BILL RICHARDSON, GEORGE MITCHELL IN NEWLY RELEASED DOCUMENTS

July 2006 – After pressure from the Palm Beach police chief, the FBI opens a federal investigation, dubbed “Operation Leap Year.’’ Documents list the possible crime as “child prostitution.’’

November 2006 – The FBI begins interviewing potential witnesses and victims from Florida, New York and New Mexico.

May 2007 – As the U.S. Attorney’s Office prepares to present the case to a federal grand jury, Epstein’s attorneys request a meeting to discuss the investigation.

June 2007 – A 53-page indictment is prepared by the U.S. Attorney’s Office as, simultaneously, plea negotiations are initiated with Epstein’s legal team.

July 2007 – Grand jury subpoenas are issued for Epstein’s computers, which were apparently removed from his Palm Beach home prior to the police search.

August 2007 – The U.S. attorney in Miami, Alexander Acosta, enters into direct discussions about the plea agreement; a motion to compel production of Epstein’s computers is delayed.

September 2007 – Federal prosecutors draw up several federal plea agreements that are rejected by Epstein and his attorneys. Epstein signs a nonprosecution agreement on Sept. 24, but his attorneys continue to delay his court appearance.

October 2007 – With the non-prosecution agreement still being debated, Acosta meets with Epstein lawyer Jay Lefkowitz at the West Palm Beach Marriott on Okeechobee Road to discuss finalizing a deal. Among the terms agreed upon: that the victims would not be notified, that the deal would be kept under seal and all grand jury subpoenas would be canceled.

November 2007 – Epstein’s lawyers object to an addendum to the agreement. The provision called for a special master to appoint an attorney to represent Epstein victims’ rights to civil compensation.

December 2007 – The two sides continue to debate the addendum. Epstein attorney Kenneth Starr asks for a review of the agreement by the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, further delaying its execution. Victims are told the investigation is continuing.

January 2008 – Epstein attorney, Lefkowitz, calls Acosta, telling him his client will not go through with the agreement because it requires him to register as a sex offender.

February 2008 – With the plea negotiations and the Justice Department review still in limbo, the FBI continues its probe, locating more witnesses and evidence.

March 2008 – Preparations are made for a new federal grand jury presentation. In court documents, the U.S. Attorney’s Office notes that Epstein’s victims are being harassed by his lawyers, who are not specifically named.

May 2008 – The Justice Department issues finding that, if a plea deal is not reached, Epstein can be federally prosecuted.

June 2008 – Epstein’s lawyers revisit plea negotiations, and on June 30, Epstein appears in a Palm Beach County courtroom. He pleads guilty to state charges: one count of solicitation of prostitution and one count of solicitation of prostitution with a minor under the age of 18. He is sentenced to 18 months in jail, followed by a year of community control or house arrest. He is adjudicated as a convicted sex offender who must register twice a year in Florida.

July 2008 – Epstein’s victims learn about his plea in state court after the fact. They file an emergency petition to force federal prosecutors to comply with the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act, which mandates certain rights for crime victims, including the right to be informed about plea agreements and the right to appear at sentencing.

August 2008 – Epstein’s victims learn that he has already been sent to jail, and that the federal investigation is over. They seek to have his plea agreement unsealed, but federal prosecutors argue against releasing the agreement, commencing a yearlong court battle to learn the terms of Epstein’s plea bargain.

October 2008 – Epstein begins work release from the county stockade. He is picked up by his private driver six days a week and transported to an office in West Palm Beach, where he accepts visitors for up to 12 hours a day. He returns to the stockade in the evenings to sleep.

7 July 2009 – Epstein is released from the Palm Beach County stockade, five months early. He must register as a sex offender and is on probation for a year, confined to his Palm Beach home except to travel to his office in West Palm Beach. However, records show he frequently makes trips to Manhattan and to his home in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

August 2009 – Palm Beach Police Capt. George Frick finds Epstein walking along A1A in the middle of the afternoon, when he was supposed to be at work in his office in downtown West Palm Beach. Epstein says he is walking to work, even though the location where he is found is not a direct route to his office. His probation officer says Epstein has permission to get some exercise.

September 2009 – The federal non-prosecution agreement is made public. By September, at least a dozen civil lawsuits have been filed by women who allege they were molested by Epstein when they were underage. Epstein begins the process of settling them out of court.

November 2009 – One of Epstein’s former butlers tries to sell to an undercover FBI agent a black book filled with the names of hundreds of girls and young women that Epstein allegedly procured for sex and massages. The butler tells FBI agents he witnessed nude underage girls at Epstein’s pool and had known that the millionaire was having sex with them. He also said he saw pornography involving underage girls on Epstein’s computers. The butler/houseman, Alfredo Rodriguez, is later charged with obstruction of justice and sentenced to federal prison. He dies in 2015. The contents of the black book become public as part of several civil lawsuits.

April 2010 – Flight logs obtained as part of civil lawsuits against Epstein show an assortment of politicians, academics, celebrities, heads of state and world leaders flying on Epstein’s jets in the early 2000s. Among them: former President Bill Clinton, former national security adviser Sandy Berger, former Colombian President Andrés Pastrana and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

March 2011 – Two of Epstein’s victims file a motion in federal court accusing the government of violating their rights by failing to notify them about the plea deal and keeping it secret. Among other things, they want the plea deal invalidated in the hopes of sending Epstein to prison. They accuse federal prosecutors of deceiving them with “false notification letters.’’

September 2011 – U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra rejects the U.S. Attorney’s Office argument that it was under no obligation to notify victims prior to striking a non-prosecution agreement with Epstein because there were no federal charges filed against him. The decision marks a victory for Epstein’s victims, but the case will drag on for seven more years.

November 2011 – Epstein must register in New York as the highest and most dangerous level of sex offender, despite efforts by him and the New York District Attorney’s office to lower the classification. A Level 3 status means “high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety exists,” according to the state’s guidelines.

March-December 2012 – Calling himself a “celebrated philanthropist’’ and a “renowned educational investor,’’ Epstein undertakes a public relations campaign to counter bad press about his sexual exploits. His foundation donates millions to scientific research and sponsors global conferences on ways to achieve world peace and save the planet. He funds cancer and educational research projects around the country.

January 2015 – Virginia Roberts files court papers in Florida claiming that she was forced by Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew and lawyer Alan Dershowitz when she was underage. In a sworn affidavit, she provides photographs of her with the prince and with Epstein’s close associate, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. She claims Maxwell worked as Epstein’s madam, which she denies. Dershowitz and the prince deny her claims as well, setting off a series of legal actions between Dershowitz and Roberts’ attorneys that are later resolved in an out-of-court settlement.

April 2015 – A federal judge rules that Roberts cannot join the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act lawsuit and that her affidavit — accusing Prince Andrew and Dershowitz of having sex with her when she was underage — be stricken from the case. Dershowitz said the ruling meant he was vindicated. However, the judge does not address the veracity of Roberts’ claims, writing: “The factual details regarding with whom and where the Jane Does engaged in sexual activities are immaterial and impertinent to this central claim.’’

September 2015 – Roberts sues Maxwell in federal court in New York, claiming that Epstein’s alleged madam defamed her in public statements in the media. The lawsuit is widely viewed as a vessel for Epstein’s victims to expose the scope of Epstein’s crimes. Several civil 9 lawsuits filed the same year allege that Epstein and Maxwell operated an international sex trafficking operation.

June 2016 – A lawsuit is filed in Manhattan by a woman who once used the name Katie Johnson, claiming that she was raped by thenpresidential candidate Donald Trump at a party at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion in 1994 when she was 13 years old. Trump and Epstein both categorically deny it ever happened.

November 2016 – Johnson backs out of a press conference just days before Election Day, saying she had been threatened and was fearful. She later drops the lawsuit.

February 2017 – President Trump nominates former Miami federal prosecutor Acosta as U.S. secretary of labor. Acosta is compelled at his confirmation hearing to briefly address questions about the deal he approved for Epstein. One lawmaker requests more records from the Epstein case. Acosta is confirmed.

June 2017 – President Trump nominates former Miami federal prosecutor Acosta as U.S. secretary of labor. Acosta is compelled at his confirmation hearing to briefly address questions about the deal he approved for Epstein. One lawmaker requests more records from the Epstein case. Acosta is confirmed.

December 2018 – Epstein settled a defamation lawsuit brought against him by a lawyer for some of the accusers, Bradley Edwards, who said Epstein tried to derail his representation of the women and ruin his career. In settling, Epstein apologized and agreed to pay an undisclosed amount.

February 2019 – The Justice Department said it had opened an investigation into federal prosecutors’ handling of Epstein’s plea deal. The department’s Office of Professional Responsibility wrote in a letter Wednesday to U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, that it would examine whether professional misconduct occurred in the highly publicized case.

February 2019 – U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra ruled that federal prosecutors overseeing the Jeffrey Epstein sexual-abuse case violated the law by concealing from his underage alleged victims the existence of the plea deal that shielded Epstein from federal charges. 10 Concealing the deal violated the 2004 Crime Victims’ Rights Act, a statutory bill of rights for victims of federal crimes, Judge Marra concluded

July 2, 2019 – A sealed indictment was filed charging Epstein with sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors

July 6, 2019 – Epstein is arrested in Teterboro, New Jersey

July 8, 2019 – Epstein indictment is unsealed. Epstein pleads not guilty at his arraignment.

July 12, 2019 – Labor Secretary Acosta announces he will step down

July 18, 2019 – Epstein is denied bail

July 23, 2019 – Epstein reportedly found unconscious and with neck injuries in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center

August 9, 2019 – Virginia Roberts Giuffre, named two prominent Democratic politicians – former Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson, in more than 2,000 documents unsealed by federal prosecutors. The papers included affidavits and depositions of key witnesses in the lawsuit Giuffre filed against Epstein and his associated, Ghislaine Maxwell in 2015

Bristol Palin, daughter of former Governor Sarah Palin, said she feels fortunate to have grown up in the public eye, despite the constant struggles that came along with the lifestyle.

In Fox Nation’s exciting new episode of “MOMS,” host Rachel Campos Duffy sat down with a group of high profile moms to share their views on hot topics affecting motherhood, and gain insight into their childhood.

“I think that life in the public eye is a weird thing obviously but I think it’s been a great thing.  It’s provided me a ton of opportunities and forced me to grow up and I’m definitely sure of the person I am now because of it,” Palin said.

Melissa Rivers, Kristy Swanson, and Cathy Areu, joined Palin as they discussed it all – from politics to their families and everything in between.

Rivers explained that she was relieved to see Palin standing strong, after an encounter eight years prior had her worried for the former governor’s daughters.

“At the time that we met, both you and your sister seemed very shell shocked,” said Rivers.

Bristol said that it took hard work to get to where she is now, and that she was “shut down” and “not confident” when she was first thrust into the spotlight.

“It hardens you,” she said – referring to a viral insult direct towards her years back by comedian Kathy Griffin.

Dr. Alveda King pushes back on Beto, others on left: ‘President Trump is not a racist’

Fox News contributor and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Alveda King pushed back against those who are labeling President Trump as a racist and a white supremacist, arguing there is a danger in misusing the terms.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, King responded to many of the 2020 Democratic candidates who have been quick to call the president a “racist” and accuse him of inciting violence with his rhetoric.

“President Trump is not a racist,” King said. “I’ve had the experience of going head to head with genuine racists.”

TRUMP TRASHES BETO O’ROURKE, TELLS HIM TO ‘BE QUIET’ AHEAD OF EL PASO VISIT

King said she would like to challenge the president’s accusers on whether they have “ever met a real racist.”

“President Trump has said ‘we all bleed the same,’ he’s very clear on that and he has done so much for all Americans including African-Americans,” she explained.

Many 2020 Democratic candidates have upped their rhetoric on the president following the horrific mass shootings that took 31 lives this past weekend.

In an interview with MSNBC, Beto O’Rourke called Trump a white supremacist on Wednesday as both men were in El Paso to honor the victims and visit those injured in the attack.

After noting he had previously called Trump a racist, the host asked O’Rourke if he believed the president was a white supremacist.

“He is. He has made that very clear,” O’Rourke answered. “He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are s—hole nations.”

King called on people on both sides to come together to “look for solutions.”

“What President Trump and First Lady Melania did was to go down and look for solutions. We have to overcome evil with good. When people call each other racist, we are one blood. One human race, different ethnicities –we’re not color blind, we can see, but that is for the purpose of appreciating each other and we have to do that,” said King.

Responding to Oprah Winfrey’s remark that the country must “return to our core moral center,” King said she found the left’s calls for morals hypocritical.

“A lot of those calling Trump a racist and white supremacist, most of them support killing in a very brutal way called abortion. The youngest, the weakest the most beautiful of us killing them in the womb. How immoral is that,” she concluded.

Trey Gowdy gets emotional responding to mass shootings: ‘Right to bear arms doesn’t matter if you’re dead’

Fox News contributor and former Rep. Trey Gowdy said Sunday that “the right-to-life is the most fundamental, basic, primary right that we have. It is the right from which all other rights emanate.”

Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures,” an emotional Gowdy said, “It doesn’t matter if you have a right to a lawyer if you are dead. It doesn’t matter if you have the right to free speech if you are dead. Doesn’t matter if you have the right to keep and bear arms if you are dead.”

Commenting on the horrific mass shootings this past weekend — with a death toll that now totals 31, Gowdy said the problem boils down to an enforcement issue.

TRUMP CONDEMNS ‘WHITE SUPREMACY,’ CALLS FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND GUN REFORMS AFTER DOUBLE MASS SHOOTINGS

2020 DEMS UNLEASH PROFANE ATTACKS ON TRUMP, REPUBLICANS OVER MASS SHOOTINGS

In a passionate plea on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sunday Gowdy, who served as a representative for South Carolina until earlier this year, asked legislators to asses whether the current laws in place are properly being enforced before resorting to the drafting of new legislation.

“More laws that are not going to be enforced is a panacea and it won’t work,” he said.

“Show me a law that will prevent the next Sandy Hook and sign me up as a husband and father,” Gowdy said, “…and I’ll give up any other right I have.”

DAYTON SHOOTING, CHAOS CAPTURED ON SURVEILLANCE VIDEO AS OFFICERS SEEN RACING TOWARD GUNFIRE

Gowdy’s remarks came before President Trump’s comments on Monday morning, in which he condemned the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio as barbaric crimes “against all humanity” and called for bipartisan cooperation to respond to an epidemic of gun violence. He blamed mental illness and video games but made no mention of more limits on sales of firearms aside from so-called “red flag laws.”

Trump tweeted that he wanted legislation providing “strong background checks” for gun users, though he has not followed through with comprehensive legislation following prior attacks.

“We vow to act with urgent resolve,” Trump said, speaking from the White House about shootings that left 31 dead. His scripted remarks came after two days of muted response to the shootings.

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, adding that he had directed the FBI to examine steps to identify and address domestic terrorism. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America,” he said.

Republican Congressional candidate calls attacks on her looks ‘sexist’: ‘This isn’t a beauty pageant’

Westlake Legal Group Sara-Weir Republican Congressional candidate calls attacks on her looks 'sexist': 'This isn't a beauty pageant' fox-news/us/congress fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/2020-house-races fox-news/media/fox-news-flash Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 01e03a36-472b-5707-9357-2a121904649f

Republican congressional candidate Sara Hart Weir on Monday called last week’s tweets attacking her appearance “sexist,” and said the focus of a political campaign should be solely about “policy and leadership.”

Weir recently joined Kansas’s 3rd District congressional race against Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids and was faced with attacks immediately following her declaration as a candidate.

WHO IS SHARICE DAVIDS?

Progressive political activist Elizabeth Arnold was quick to enter the fray, claiming it was Weir’s looks that propelled her to run for the seat.

“Do you think it’s a coincidence Kansas Republicans are recruiting attractive young women to run for office? They learned it works in local and state school board races and races, so they’re sticking with a winning strategy,” Arnold wrote on Twitter.

Arnold continued her attacks, calling “seemingly moderate moms” who are in fact conservative, “insidious.”

“They’re insidious b/c they deploy a facade of feminism to lend a veneer of acceptability to the GOP’s racism, corruption, & antisocial policies,” Arnold wrote.

Weir fired back on “Fox & Friends” Monday, calling Arnold’s attacks “sexist,” and “an attack against women everywhere.”

“This isn’t a beauty pageant, Weir said. “The election will come down to policy and leadership.”

Asked whether she felt the Democrats had a double standard, Weir, former CEO of the National Down Syndrome Society, said she hopes people will stop focusing on appearances.

“It’s just unfortunate that this woman felt that it was okay to go after my appearance and not focus on the issues, the substance, and my track record of getting things done,” Weir said.

“On day two of my campaign, to have Ms. Arnold (a former political candidate and now political consultant), demean my life experiences, achievements and track record of getting things done based solely on my appearance (and being a GOP woman) is sexist, uncalled for and insulting to women everywhere,” Weir wrote in a statement provided to Townhall.

“The November 2020 election in KS-3, Sharice Davids v. Sara Hart Weir, will come down to two things – who is better on the issues and who can lead.”

Republican senator introduces bill condemning socialism, calls it ‘chilling and concerning’

A Republican senator introduced a resolution Tuesday condemning what he called a “failed experiment at socialism.

Sen. Steve Daines R-Mont., who authored the resolution, told “Outnumbered Overtime” host Harris Faulkner that it all comes down to a pivotal choice.

“This is going to be a choice between freedom and socialism,” he said.

In February, President Trump emphasized the threat of socialism in his State of the Union address and committed to fighting it at all costs.

“We are born free, we will stay free, America will never be a socialist country,” the president said at the time.

Daines said he hopes to bring the resolution to the floor and anticipates full support from his Republican colleagues.

“I think every member of the U.S. Senate should be on record for this resolution,” he said.

UNION LEADERS WARN GREEN NEW DEAL MAY LEAD TO POVERTY

Heading into 2020, Daines said the president must paint a clear distinction between his path for the country, and that of the Democratic candidates — many of whom support socialism.

The resolution comes as a new Fox News poll showed 54 percent of voters thought the U.S. moving from capitalism toward socialism would be a “bad thing” — even as 53 percent of Democratic primary voters said it would be a “good” development. The growing divide is expected to play a significant role in the 2020 presidential election.

Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has largely become the face of socialism within her party since she ran on a socialist platform last year for a seat in the House.

“AOC and the squad have now become the face and the voice of the Democrats… that ought to be chilling and concerning for Americans who love freedom, want to protect our nation’s sovereignty and believe in the direction that President Trump is taking our country,” Daines said.
