Arkansas Republicans file resolution blasting impeachment ‘sham’: House Dems doing ‘irreparable harm’

Arkansas State Sen. Missy Irvin on Tuesday blasted the House Democrats’ impeachment “sham,” filing a resolution with her fellow state Senate Republicans that urges Congress to speed up the process.

“We hear every single day from our constituents that they are tired and they are frustrated with what is happening at the federal level with the impeachment sham and the process that is occurring,” Irvin told “Fox & Friends,” explaining her reason for trying to get federal legislators’ attention.

Irvin released a statement condemning members of the House of Representatives who approved articles of impeachment against President Trump.

“On behalf of my entire Republican Senate Caucus, I filed this resolution today to encourage the United States Senate to act as quickly as possible within their full constitutional authority regarding the impeachment process and to condemn the actions of some members of the House of Representatives for passing and holding articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.”

The resolution is scheduled for review at the January 17 meeting of the Legislative Council.

Irvin asserted that the resolution would condemn the actions of “some” of the House of Representatives for previously holding the articles of impeachment, causing a weekslong delay in the process.

“They’re just playing games. It’s a high-stakes game of chicken that they’re playing and they’re doing irreparable harm to, I believe, the office of the presidency, to our Constitution, and to our country.”

Irvin called it “embarrassing” and argued that Americans across the country are “paying the price” because important problems are not being addressed.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Monday tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., just days after the speaker backed down from her refusal to send the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, calling Pelosi’s delay a “strange gambit” that “produced absolutely nothing.”

During a speech on the Senate floor, McConnell chastised Pelosi for ending what he called “her one-woman blockade” and questioned her strategy for holding off sending the articles to the Senate.

Sen. Tom Cotton says threat of future Soleimani attacks looks different to soldiers than politicians

Westlake Legal Group Cotton-Levin-Reuters-FOX Sen. Tom Cotton says threat of future Soleimani attacks looks different to soldiers than politicians fox-news/world/world-regions/iraq fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/arkansas fox-news/us/military fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/life-liberty-levin fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc f14d6195-26bc-58a6-b55b-d7ef18d46a23 Charles Creitz article

Senate Armed Services Committee member Tom Cotton, R-Ark., praised President Trump‘s swift action that killed Iran Gen. Qassem Soleimani, telling Mark Levin that the viewpoint of a soldier in the Middle East is different than that of a lawmaker working stateside.

Cotton, a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said in an interview airing Sunday on “Life, Liberty & Levin” that he has seen intelligence that showed Soleimani, 62, was plotting “something large [and] something very dangerous” in the near future.

“There is no doubt,” he said, suggesting that the severity of the situation trumped whether the predicted attack or attacks happened in a matter of days as opposed to weeks or months.

MARK LEVIN: ‘APPALLING’ TO WATCH LAWMAKERS INVOKE ‘UNCONSTITUTIONAL’ WAR POWERS ACT AGAINST TRUMP

“The question of whether the attack is imminent or not … looks very different if you’re a soldier sitting in Iraq than if you’re some comfortable senator sitting behind armed guards in Washington D.C.,” Cotton said.

The Arkansas lawmaker added that Soleimani “was a sadistic terrorist mastermind and there is no country in the Middle East whose citizens have not suffered from his depredations.”

Cotton claimed Soleimani is a chief reason why Syria President Bashar al-Assad remains in power Syria and that the general’s Quds Force was responsible for killing thousands of Iranians during a recent civil protest against the Tehran government.

“If you’ve got a chance to take a mastermind like Qassem Soleimani off the battlefield, you take it,” he said, backing up the president’s sentiments and adding that he is disappointed in the objections he’s heard from the Democrat side of the aisle.

Storms in South blamed for 7 deaths, including 3 in Alabama from tornado

Powerful storms in parts of the South were being blamed for seven deaths, according to reports Saturday.

Alabama officials reported that three people were killed in a tornado in Pickens County.

Earlier Saturday, firefighters in Bossier Parish, La., sifted through a trailer demolished by strong winds and found the bodies of an elderly couple.

The winds were so potent that the home moved 200 feet from its foundation, officials said.

A third person was reported killed in Louisiana. In Caddo Parish, Raymond Holden, 75, was sleeping when a tree fell on his home, crushing him.

“Our prayers are with their families and everyone in harm’s way,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards tweeted after the deaths were reported.

“Please stay safe and monitor local media as this severe weather will continue to impact Louisiana for several hours,” he added.

In Mississippi, straight-line wind reportedly knocked at least 30 train cars off the tracks in Tallahatchie County.

“A power line was hanging across the road and an eighteen-wheeler truck ran into it and got hung up in it and the Benton officer got there to help him,” Whittington said. Both were expected to survive.

Texas gusts topple 18-wheeler; Arkansas tornado destroys at least 3 homes

Strong winds in Texas reportedly flipped an 18-wheeler on its side in Dallas County during a severe thunderstorm that blew through the region Friday.

Gale-force winds blew the truck onto the grass next to westbound Interstate 635 in Irving, Texas, FOX 4 reported.

Crews had to break a window to get the driver, who suffered minor injuries, out of the truck. The rig was eventually righted using a crane.

Severe winds also ripped off a section of wall from nearby Hilton Garden Inn. No injuries were reported.

TORNADOES HIT MISSOURI, OKLAHOMA, AS SEVERE STORMS MOVE EAST

Much of Northern Texas was under a tornado watch until 9 p.m. local time, FOX 4 of Dallas reported.

Meanwhile, two homes were destroyed by winds in Logan County, Ark. where “a confirmed large and extremely dangerous tornado” touched down Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

Only the foundation of a trailer home was left after the storm blew through Midway, Ark., Little Rock’s FOX 16 reported.

“Winds so strong that it picked it up from its foundation and just tossed everything out here,” Re’Chelle Turner of FOX 16 reported.

She advised people in the area to be careful: “This weather is nothing to play with.”

Turner said a tornado warning near a Walmart in Clarksville, in Logan County, forced everyone huddle at the back of the store.

“The wind was just so hard,” she said. “The rain, it sounded just like what people actually say – like a freight train.”

The national Storm Prediction Center said more than 18 million people in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma were at an enhanced risk of storms Friday, including from strong tornadoes, flooding rains and wind gusts that could exceed 80 mph (129 kph), the speed of a Category 1 hurricane. The area included Dallas, Houston and Austin.

Parts of nine states — Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana — were under flash flood watches on Friday in anticipation of the drenching rains.

Tornadoes destroyed homes in Arkansas and Missouri and also caused damage in Oklahoma as severe storms threatened much of the South over the weekend, officials said.

The national Storm Prediction Center said more than 18 million people in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma were at an enhanced risk of storms Friday, including from strong tornadoes, flooding rains and wind gusts that could exceed 80 mph (129 kph), the speed of a Category 1 hurricane. The area included several major Texas cities including Dallas, Houston and Austin.

The storms also unleashed downpours that caused widespread flash flooding. Dallas police said one person died when a car flipped into Five Mile Creek west of downtown Dallas about 7 p.m.

‘SIGNIFICANT’ SEVERE WEATHER EVENT, INCLUDING TORNADO THREAT, FOR MILLIONS ACROSS SOUTH

Earlier in the afternoon, a tornado destroyed two homes near Fair Play, Missouri, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northwest of Springfield. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said no injuries were reported.

Shortly before 3 p.m., a tornado stripped the shingles from the roof of a home near Tahlequah, Oklahoma, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) southeast of Tulsa. No injuries were reported there either.

What the NWS described as “a confirmed large and extremely dangerous tornado” roared through parts of Logan County, Arkansas, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) east of Fort Smith on Friday night.

At least three homes were destroyed by the Arkansas tornado, said Logan County Emergency Management Coordinator Tobi Miller, but no injuries were reported. Downed trees and power lines were widespread, she said.

Miller said the tornado skirted her home in Subiaco, Arkansas. She said she heard but couldn’t see the rain-wrapped twister in the dark.

Ahead of the storms, Dallas’ Office of Emergency Management asked residents to bring in pets, outdoor furniture, grills, “and anything else that could be caught up in high winds to reduce the risk of flying debris.”

“Trampolines are very easy to loft into the air during high winds,” said Matt Hemingway, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Shreveport, Louisiana. “Anything outside that could be blown around could become a projectile.”

“We’re pretty much right in the crosshairs,” Hemingway said of Shreveport. “Damaging winds are our biggest concern because of the widespread nature of that threat, with tornadoes not far behind that.”

Such strong winds are a key concern in an area at greatest risk: A zone that includes parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, the Storm Prediction Center warned. Weather service meteorologists in northern Louisiana said that such a dire forecast for the area is only issued two to four times each year, on average.

“We could see some very strong tornadoes — possibly those that may stay on the ground for some time — not just the brief spin-up tornadoes,” Hemingway said.

Tornado watches Friday night covered parts of eastern Texas, northwestern Louisiana, southern Missouri and much of Arkansas.

In Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said boats, helicopters, medical and rescue teams had been placed on standby in case they are needed.

“I ask that all Texans keep those in the storm’s path and all of Texas’ first responders in their prayers as they deal with the effects of this storm,” Abbott said in a statement.

Wicked weather also will pose a threat to Alabama and Georgia as the system moves eastward on Saturday, forecasters said.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said Friday the state was making necessary preparations ahead of the potential weather.

“At the state level, we continue to closely monitor this storm system, while making all necessary preparations,” Ivey said in a statement. “I encourage all Alabamians to do the same, stay weather aware and heed all local warnings.”

On Alabama’s Gulf Coast, Baldwin County canceled school activities including sporting events that were scheduled for Saturday. The weather service warned of flooding and the potential for 10-foot-high waves on beaches, where northern visitors escaping the cold are a common sight during the winter.

Heavy rains also could cause flooding across the South and part of the Midwest.

Many streams already are at or near flood levels because of earlier storms, and heavy rains could lead to flash flooding across the region, forecasters said. Parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana were under flash flood watches on Friday in anticipation of the drenching rains.

Judge in Hunter Biden’s Arkansas paternity case abruptly recuses himself

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Hunter-GettyImages-520783510 Judge in Hunter Biden's Arkansas paternity case abruptly recuses himself Nick Givas fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/arkansas fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2aee8da4-78c3-5c3b-88b4-f5fc67751f94

The circuit court judge overseeing Hunter Biden‘s paternity case, Don McSpadden, recused himself without reason on Tuesday, just days after a private investigation firm sought to intercede in the case.

D&A Investigations, based in Florida, filed a “Notice of Fraud and Counterfeiting and Production of Evidence.” with the court on Dec. 23, claiming Hunter Biden “established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley et al” for Burisma Holdings — where he served as a former board member — to satisfy a “money laundering scheme.”

McSpadden had the request stricken from the record, on grounds that it violated state procedural rules, which require the intervening party to raise a claim that shared a “question of law or fact in common” with the existing case. Biden’s legal team had told the court that D&A’s filing was riddled with falsehoods and clearly procedurally improper.

In another court filing from Dec. 27, D&A claimed it had provided attorneys for Lunden Alexis Roberts, the plaintiff, “access to [Hunter Biden’s] bank account records” that show proof of “fraud and counterfeiting.” D&A sought to be officially added as a party to the case, in an effort to support Roberts’ claim and provide proof of Biden’s alleged criminal activity.

HUNTER BIDEN FIRES BACK AFTER PI CLAIMS SECRET BANK RECORDS ‘VERIFY’ $156M COUNTERFEITING SCHEME

McSpadden recused himself before he could rule on the second motion.

Roberts’ attorney, Brent M. Langdon, was not seeking D&A’s assistance and called its efforts “a scheme by a non-party simply to make scandalous allegations,” the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

In the recusal document, obtained by The Gazette, McSpadden didn’t provide specific details about his departure, and only deferred to the “Administrative Plan of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit.”

According to the administrative plan, the case will now go to Circuit Judge Holly Meyer.

McSpadden reportedly ordered all income records from Biden and Roberts over the past five years. He also ordered that the financial information be kept under seal and only be available to the attorneys involved in the case.

DNA tests allegedly confirmed, “with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden was the biological father of Roberts’ baby, according to court documents filed in November.

A separate motion said Hunter Biden will not be contesting paternity in the case, The Gazette reported.

Arkansas man struck store employee with vehicle after stealing gel insoles, ‘other foot products,’ authorities say

An Arkansas man faces a felony robbery charge following his arrest Friday after he allegedly shoplifted gel insoles and “other foot products” from a grocery store and then struck an intervening store employee with his vehicle in the store’s parking lot, according to a report.

Mitchell Allen Burroughs, 26, of Hot Springs, Ark., was arrested at his home shortly before 9:30 a.m. on the robbery charge, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Tuesday.

In addition, Burroughs has outstanding warrants for failure to appear and failure to comply, the newspaper reported.

According to an affidavit, early last Friday morning, Garland County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joshua Cannon, Cpl. Clayton Green and Deputy Elwood McConnell were dispatched to Harps Food Store in response to reports of a shoplifter who, when confronted by employees, allegedly struck one with his vehicle while fleeing.

The pair reportedly confronted the man as he was trying to drive away before he allegedly drove forward, striking the victim with the front of his vehicle. The victim was reportedly uninjured, the Democrat-Gazette reported.

The man then reportedly threw the stolen items at the employees as he drove away. Witnesses were able to get the license plate number.

After deputies reviewed the store’s security footage, they recognized the suspect as Burroughs, the Democrat-Gazette reported. The vehicle was located a short time later at the home.

Deputies drove to the house and spoke with Burroughs’ mother, who let them in the house.

Inside, they found Burroughs and reportedly confirmed he was the man seen in the security video. He was taken into custody without further incident.

Arkansas police officer ‘executed’ in fatal shooting outside department, chief says

A police officer in Arkansas was shot and killed behind a police department late Saturday night before the suspected shooter was gunned down by responding officers in a nearby alley, according to officials.

The Fayetteville Police Department said in a news release the incident happened around 9:41 p.m. when officers inside the station heard gunshots, went outside and discovered an officer down in a back parking lot and a suspect fleeing the area.

“It appears the suspect came into the back parking lot and just executed my officer,”  Fayetteville Police Chief Mike Reynolds said at a brief news conference.

Reynolds told reporters that the suspect was chased into an alley between the police department and the city prosecutor’s office. Officers then “engaged the suspect,” and shots were fired, injuring the suspect.

Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene, but both the officer and suspected shooter died of their injuries.

Reynolds, who told reporters he didn’t know of a motive, said that the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were working the crime scene.

“These are the details as I know,” Reynolds said.

Fayetteville Police Chief Mike Reynolds said at a news conference it appeared the suspect came into the parking lot behind the police station and “just executed my officer.”

The names of the officer killed and suspect were not immediately released, and neither were the names of the officers who engaged the suspected shooter. Police said in a news release that several law enforcement agencies would be involved in the investigation.

The officer was by his patrol car when he was shot and killed, FOX16 reported.

OFFICERS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY IN 2019

The gunfire sparked a scare at the nearby city square, where a crowd was taking in the Lights of the Ozarks installation and heard the gunshots, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

Police stressed there was no threat to the public.

“We think about stuff like this and we know it could happen here, but you hope it never does,” police spokesman Sgt. Anthony Murphy told the newspaper. “It happened here. Now we’re here to pick up the pieces.”

The fatal Arkansas shooting followed the shooting death of a Houston police officer Saturday night, who was shot multiple times while responding to a domestic violence call.

Working in law enforcement has been one of the most dangerous jobs in America. As of early December, 113 officers had died in the line of duty this year, with causes running the gamut from vehicular accidents and medical emergencies to homicides, according to data from the Officer Down Memorial Page.

Fox News’ Greg Norman and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

GQ writer mocked for claiming ‘Russian quotation mark’ in paper’s Hunter Biden’s baby story

Westlake Legal Group Biden-Loffe-Getty GQ writer mocked for claiming 'Russian quotation mark' in paper's Hunter Biden's baby story Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/arkansas fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc c3cb5e1f-6407-57d9-a1b7-83a8ea77020a article

A writer for GQ was ridiculed on Wednesday for pointing out what she thought was a “Russian quotation mark” on a newspaper’s tweet linking to the explosive report about Hunter Biden’s lovechild.

GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe jumped on a tweet made by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, who first broke the story about court documents that show that DNA tests allegedly confirming “with scientific certainty” that Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden’s son is the biological father of a baby whose mother he denied having sex with.

“Note the Russian quotation mark,” Ioffe wrote in her now-deleted highlighted.

When responding to the possibility that the symbol used was meant as an arrow to guide Twitter users to click on the link, Ioffe responded, “Please tell me how to recreate that symbol without spending more than 3 seconds on a standard QWERTY keyboard.”

After being immediately called out, Ioffe deleted the tweets and issued an apology.

“Deleted a couple tweets after being correctly corrected. Turns out the paper had used that symbol before. It had jumped out to me, a Russian speaker (and keyboard user) as a quotation mark and looked like other, sloppy attempts by Russian trolls to push stories,” Ioffe wrote. “I apologize for the mistake, and am explaining it in the interests of full transparency. Thank you, everyone, for pointing it out!”

Many mocked the GQ correspondent for her tweets, including the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s online editor.

“Yeah hi I am not a Russian troll, I just work at a paper in lil ole Arkansas/ Sorry to disappoint @juliaioffe,” Maggie McNeary wrote on behalf of her paper.

GQ did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

In a motion to partially seal information about the child from the public as part of an ongoing child support suit, an attorney for Lunden Alexis Roberts, an Arkansas woman and the child’s mom, asked that the infant, referred to as Baby Doe in court documents, have Secret Service protection.

The attorney, Clinton Lancaster, informed the court in Independence County that because onetime Vice President Joe Biden “is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party’s nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballot in 2020,” the child and those close to it should be entitled to the same protections afforded to Biden’s other kin.

Roberts’ paternity suit was first filed on May 28 when she alleged that she and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship,” according to reports by The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

In July, Biden denied having sexual relations with Roberts, according to an article by The New Yorker. He agreed to submit to a paternity test in October.
