First Brit in space says aliens exist: ‘There’s no two ways about it’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6087230850001_6087228353001-vs First Brit in space says aliens exist: 'There’s no two ways about it' fox-news/topic/aliens fox news fnc/science fnc Chris Ciaccia article 40b8dd25-3bdc-53fc-8e45-4c68a7913e28

Renowned for being the first British person in space, Dr. Helen Sharman is making headlines for another claim. She believes aliens exist.

“Aliens exist, there’s no two ways about it,” Sharman said in an interview with The Observer magazine. “There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life.”

Sharman said she was not sure if they would be composed of carbon and nitrogen, but suggested they may be on Earth already. “It’s possible they’re here right now, and we simply can’t see them,” she added.

NASA DENIES THERE ARE LIVING ‘INSECT- AND REPTILE-LIKE CREATURES’ ON MARS

The 56-year-old Sharman went into space in May 1991 as part of Project Juno, a joint Soviet Union–British mission where she visited the Mir space station for eight days.

NASA has repeatedly denied it has discovered the presence of life outside of Earth, including most recently in October, when a former employee published an explosive op-ed suggesting the agency found life nearly 50 years ago.

Gilbert Levin, who worked on the Viking missions to the Red Planet during the 1970s, published an op-ed that made it clear that he believes data from the Labeled Release (LR) in 1976 was supportive of finding life.

NASA: ANCIENT MARS OASIS COULD HAVE SUPPORT LIFE

“On July 30, 1976, the LR returned its initial results from Mars,” Levin wrote in the op-ed, entitled “I’m Convinced We Found Evidence of Life on Mars in the 1970s.”

Fox News has reached out to Sharman and NASA with a request for comment for this story.

Kennedy family member launches House bid against party-switching Rep. Van Drew

Amy Kennedy, the wife of former Democratic Rep. Patrick Kennedy, announced Monday that she will run as a Democrat against Rep. Jeff Van Drew in November after the congressman from New Jersey switched parties amid the impeachment battle against President Trump.

Kennedy, a former public school teacher and years-long resident of Brigantine, N.J., announced her candidacy for the House seat representing New Jersey’s 2nd district in an online video on Monday highlighting environmental issues and the economy.

GOP CONGRESSMAN MAKES BOLD PREDICTION ON IMPEACHMENT OUTCOME: ‘I THINK WE CAN TAKE BACK THE HOUSE IN 2020’ 

Kennedy currently serves as the education director of the Kennedy Forum, which was founded in 2013 by her husband and focuses on helping officials improve mental health care policy. Patrick Kennedy served eight terms as a congressman representing Rhode Island and is the son of late Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, and nephew of late President John F. Kennedy.

In the video, Kennedy also took a direct swipe at Van Drew, who announced his party switch last month after the House voted to approve two articles of impeachment—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—against the president. Van Drew opposed those articles.

“Too many of our leaders have lost their moral compass,” Kennedy said in the video. “Trump and Van Drew are symptoms of a bigger sickness affecting our country and our politics. Doing what’s right shouldn’t be complicated. Treat one another with respect, show some compassion, look out for others.”

FORGETTING SOMETHING? DEM LEADER MAKES NO MENTION OF IMPEACHMENT IN HOUSE AGENDA MEMO

Van Drew’s switch opened a competitive Democratic primary in New Jersey, in a district that typically leans Republican. Van Drew’s seat had been held by Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo for 12 terms before Van Drew won in 2018 as a Democrat.

Kennedy faces several rivals in the Democratic primary, including Montclair State University political science professor Brigid Harrison, who has already garnered support from Democratic lawmakers; Atlantic County Freeholder Ashley Bennett; and former FBI agent Robert Turkavage, who ran and lost in the 2018 GOP primary, but switched parties to run as a Democrat this year.

Irwin family treating hundreds of animals amid Australia wildfires: ‘Everything’ is being injured

Westlake Legal Group irwins-wildfires-ap Irwin family treating hundreds of animals amid Australia wildfires: 'Everything' is being injured Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/disasters/fires fox-news/travel/regions/australia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/world fnc article 5bb8a29b-8393-5627-b4a8-ae387c1c6697

The wife and son of the late Australian zookeeper and popular television personality Steve Irwin — also known as “The Crocodile Hunter” — said  Monday that they are helping the animals affected by the devastating wildfires ravaging parts of Australia.

“We are taking what we can, we are doing emergency fundraising and building more facilities right now,” the owner of the Australia Zoo, Terri Irwin, said on “Fox & Friends.” “We’re at capacity right now for koalas, we’re over capacity for fruit bats and we are seeing a number of other animals.”

She added, “Koalas make the headlines, but everything is getting injured, birds, reptiles, you name it. And the people on the front lines are doing a great job, but their facilities are getting evacuated.”

Australia’s capital, Canberra, had the worst air quality of any major city in the world for much of Monday. The devastating fires have killed at least 25 people in Australia and destroyed 2,000 homes, so far scorching an area twice the size of Maryland.

AUSTRALIA WILDFIRES TURN NEW ZEALAND SKY ORANGE

More than 135 fires were still burning across New South Wales, including almost 70 that were not contained. Officials have warned that Monday’s rain won’t put out the largest and most dangerous blazes before conditions deteriorate again.

Officials also warned that Australia’s wildfire season — which generally lasts through March — was nowhere near its end.

On Kangaroo Island, a refuge off the coast of South Australia state for some of the country’s most endangered creatures, teams had arrived to help euthanize livestock and wild animals injured in the blazes. Hundreds of millions of animals are believed to have died already in the fires across the country.

“It’s really sad to see,” said Robert Irwin, Terri and Steve’s son.

He added, “Of course, it’s the injuries you would expect, smoke inhalation and burns, but more than that, as these animals are trying to flee these areas, they’re coming in contact with places animals shouldn’t be. So they’re crossing roads, getting hit by cars, coming into contact with domestic animals, so there’s a lot of different injuries that we’re getting.”

“We’re really just overrun at the moment,” He continued. “Our fruit bat intake has gone up by about 750 percent, so even though we’ve helped 90,000 animals over the years, it’s really grown exponentially over the last few days.”

His mother Terri said volunteers are transporting the injured animals to them by air and “we’re seeing hundreds of animals being transported.”

She said for those interested in helping, donations can be made to Wildlifewarriors.org.au.

AUSTRALIA WILDFIRES PROMPT NAVY BEACH RESCUES, MARKING LARGEST PEACETIME EVACUATIONS IN HISTORY

“The funds are going directly to medical supplies that we’re sending south and adding facilities and helping these animals that need it so much,” she said.

Robert added that helping the injured animals is honoring his father’s legacy. He was 2 when his father was killed in 2006 by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef.

“For us, as a family, it is such an honor for me and my sister and my mom to really get to follow in his footsteps and make sure that his message lives on,” Robert said on Monday. “I think in this day and age, our wildlife all over the world, are having a really tough time and it’s important for everyone to step up and do their part, but we are really excited to get to honor him in times like this, with the wildfires. I know he would have been in a lot of distress with what’s going on.”

EXCLUSIVE: Lara Logan confronts alleged Mexican cartel doctor accused of torturing DEA agent

In 1985, the Guadalajara drug cartel, operating in western Mexico, abducted a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent and tortured him to death.

The brutal and heartbreaking story of DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena was retold in the hit Netflix documentary, “Narcos,” but it hasn’t brought his killers any closer to justice.

The men allegedly responsible for Camarena’s death are free and the cartel doctor the DEA believes kept Camarena alive to prolong his torture lives out in the open.

Lara Logan and her team tracked him down in Guadalajara and confronted him in the latest episode of the Fox Nation series, “Lara Logan Has No Agenda”

“Even to this day, there’s a current ongoing investigation into Kiki’s death,” said Terrance Cole, a retired assistant regional director of the DEA in Mexico City.

Cole began his career in Colombia, and he told Fox Nation that he has seen the Mexican cartels surpass the Colombians in dominance of the global drug trade.

“DEA agents in Mexico work under constant threat,” narrated Logan in the Fox Nation docuseries. “Last year, they had to evacuate one of their offices at least five times.  And the Sinaloa cartel, one of the world’s largest drug trafficking organizations, put out [a] video identifying a DEA office and their agents with their home addresses.”

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán was a young lieutenant in the Guadalajara cartel in 1985 when cartel members killed Camerena by “crushing his skull and drilling his head with a screwdriver,” reported Logan.

She met up with a DEA agent in Guadalajara, and he drove her to the U.S. consulate where Camerena was kidnapped and then several blocks away to the house where he was tortured and killed.

“Human life means nothing here,” said the agent, whose voice and appearance were disguised for his safety.

“This is no different than what you would see in the Middle East.  It’s no different here,” he told Logan as they drove through the streets of the city. “The only difference is what’s driving them is greed, power and money, not ideology.  There’s no ideology here.”

“This is a big deal for DEA still?” asked Logan, standing outside the building where Camerena was murdered.

“It is for me… this is not a movie,” he replied. “I mean, you’re standing right in front of this place where it happened.  His picture is outside of our office. I’m walking the same halls he walked.”

“One man the DEA still believes was involved — a local doctor that they said extended his torture,” narrated Logan. “The agent said we’d find him at a local taco shop, so we took a chance.”

“That’s where the doctor who kept Kiki alive while he was being tortured… that’s where he works?” asked Logan as she and her crew looked across a city street.

“He owns the place,” said the agent.

In 1992, Dr. Humberto Alvarez Machain went on trial for allegedly injecting drugs into Camerena during his torture to keep him alive and extend his agony. During the trial, Machain’s defense attorney accused the U.S. government of paying drug dealers to help fabricate the allegations against his client.

A judge eventually dismissed the charges against Machain, saying the government lacked evidence for the case to proceed to a jury trial. Machain was eventually released.

However, to this day, DEA agents believe that Machain was involved.

“Did you have any involvement in Kiki’s death?” Logan asked Machain outside the sidewalk taco restaurant that he now runs.

EXCLUSIVE: LARA LOGAN CORNERED BY MEXICAN POLICE, THREATENED

“Absolutely not,” he said through an interpreter. “Tell her that since I left the United States prison, I’ve been here at this little business and keep enjoying it… I feel very proud that I was able to get out of a federal court trial in the United States.”

“How come the doctor’s not in jail?” Logan asked her DEA escort as they walked away.

“There’s no justice for anyone here. You’re lucky if you get justice for anyone,” he said.

This episode is one installment of the four-part docuseries “Lara Logan Has No Agenda,” which is focused on immigration, socialism, media bias and veterans. “Lara Logan Has No Agenda” is available exclusively on Fox Nation.

AOC slams Dem centrists as ‘Tea Party of the left,’ suggests Biden shouldn’t be in same party

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6118047728001_6118062479001-vs AOC slams Dem centrists as ‘Tea Party of the left,’ suggests Biden shouldn’t be in same party Ronn Blitzer fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc article 334c8039-da61-55f9-ab4a-43141203ce39

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., outspoken champion of progressive causes, lamented in a new interview that her own party is too inclusive of people with different ideas.

In a lengthy profile by New York Magazine, the freshman Democrat derided her moderate colleagues as the “Tea Party of the left,” and completely distanced herself from the party’s current front-runner for the presidential nomination.

AOC SLAMS TRUMP, SAYS SOLEIMANI STRIKE RISKS ‘LIVES OF MILLIONS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE’

“In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are,” Ocasio-Cortez said. When asked how she would fit in with a possible Biden administration, her initial response was, “Oh, God.”

Along with fellow newcomers Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Ocasio-Cortez has often clashed with the Democratic establishment, making headlines last year for a war of words with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who spoke of them in dismissive terms.

But Ocasio-Cortez’s problem with the more experienced members of her party go beyond respect, as she expressed an impatience with their tolerance for more moderate views.

“For so long, when I first got in, people were like, ‘Oh, are you going to basically be a Tea Party of the left?’ And what people don’t realize is that there is a Tea Party of the left, but it’s on the right edges, the most conservative parts of the Democratic Party,” she said. “So the Democratic Party has a role to play in this problem, and it’s like we’re not allowed to talk about it. We’re not allowed to talk about anything wrong the Democratic Party does.”

FORGETTING SOMETHING? DEM LEADER MAKES NO MENTION OF IMPEACHMENT IN HOUSE AGENDA MEMO

She believes that in her short time in Washington, she has “created more room for dissent,” and that “we’re learning to stretch our wings a little bit on the left.”

At the same time that she endorses creating room for other viewpoints, she complains that “Democrats can be too big of a tent,” and suggests that the Congressional Progressive Caucus in particular should start closing its doors to those who don’t have the proper leftist creds.

“They let anybody who the cat dragged in call themselves a progressive,” she said. “There’s no standard.”

Notably, one role model Ocasio-Cortez pointed to is not even a Democrat. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is an example she gave of a principled lawmaker who stuck to his guns and was able to help change the political conversation, not just in his home state, but the country.

One House aide warned that Ocasio-Cortez’s idealism and resistance to negotiating with moderates could be a problem.

“This is how it works here: You negotiate a concession in exchange for a vote. But you have to have the votes and you have to be willing to negotiate,” the aide told New York Magazine. “She says she is an organizer, but you have to be willing to organize in the caucus as well as outside it.”

Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., also explained that “no one gets all of his or her way,” and that compromise is part of the game. A member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Meeks found himself at odds with the leftist group Justice Democrats, which backed Ocasio-Cortez, claiming last summer that the organization was “targeting” CBC members in primary races.

Meeks warned that lawmakers who do not learn to make concessions will end up ultimately being ineffective.

“You have to learn quickly; otherwise, you will be in the minority and you will be as relevant as that windowpane,” he said. “Do you want to be able to just talk a lot or do you want to be able to do something?”

New Jersey fisherman catches 475-pound shark after ‘real battle’

Not bad for a guy who was only planning to catch a few sea bass.

Last Sunday, when everyone else in New Jersey was fishing for pollock or porgy, Joe Welsh managed to reel in a 475-pound mako shark.

SEE IT: FISHERMAN HOOKS 13-FOOT GREAT WHITE SHARK OFF COAST OF FLORIDA

Welsh, an angler from Hopatcong, was out with a chartered fishing trip about 75 miles off the coast when he made the catch. Even the boat’s captain, Howard Bogan of Bogan’s Deep Sea Fishing Center, was taken aback by the massive mako, which apparently put up a “real battle” before Welsh got him into his boat, a 125-foot vessel known as “The Jamaica.”

“Joe Welsh is one of the best sea bass fishermen I’ve met,” Capt. Howard Bogan said of Joe Welsh, seen to the right of the photo in the orange waders. (Capt. Howard Bogan/Bogan’s Deep Sea Fishing Center)

“Joe Welsh is one of the best sea bass fishermen I’ve met, and also a regular on the Jamaica,” Capt. Bogan wrote on Facebook, adding that Welsh was having success reeling him sea bass from “his usual spot” in the bow of the vessel.

According to Bogan, Welsh had initially hooked a dogfish and had actually pulled it partway out of the water when the mako emerged and chomped at his catch.

“[Welsh] said it was the most remarkable thing he’s ever seen,” Bogan told USA Today’s For the Win.

Welsh dropped his catch back into the water and watched the shark gobble it up. He then reeled it in close enough to gaff, and “that’s when the real battle began,” according to Bogan’s Facebook post.

“Once the second and third gaff were sunk into the mako it went berserk. By the time the tail rope was on the shark, three gaff hooks were straightened out, and two other gaff poles practically exploded!” Bogan wrote.

In the end, and with the help of his fellow fishermen, Welsh ended up reeling in the largest fish in The Jamaica’s history, which was estimated to be just over 475 pounds.

Bogan said the Mako was the largest fish ever caught on the 125-foot Jamaica. (Capt. Howard Bogan/Bogan’s Deep Sea Fishing Center)

“We have caught large sharks at this time of year before, but not quite that big,” Bogan told For the Win.

According to the outlet, Welsh also shared plenty of his catch with the 50-plus fishermen on The Jamaica, sending them home with shark filets for later.

Mako shark, of which there are both shortfin and longfin species, are currently listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which cites overfishing and the species’ low reproduction rates as factors. As a result, mako under a certain length – 83 inches from tip to tail, as of 2018, according to NorthJersey.com – are illegal to keep.

NYC subway brawl shows man kicking, dragging woman in train who punches him back

A full-on brawl erupted in front of straphangers on a New York City subway train on New Year’s Day in a disturbing video that was released by police.

The New York Police Department said the assault happened January 1 at 7 a.m. on a 6 train at the Elder Avenue subway station in the Bronx.

In the video released by police, a man in gray jeans and a caramel-color jacket punches and kicks a woman dressed in black before knocking her to the floor of the train.

The woman can be seen in another clip repeatedly punching the man.

In a longer clip of the footage obtained by the New York Post, the man can be seen dragging the woman by the hair out onto the subway platform and kicking her in the chest.

Straphangers — who look on without intervening — can be heard saying “Yo, step out man” while another person is heard saying “Happy New Year.”

Officials said someone who saw the fight called 911 and officers arriving at the scene found the man, who appeared to be drunk. The man later refused medical attention from EMS. While officers were waiting for EMS to arrive, the woman told them she and the man had gotten into a verbal argument that was resolved.

The NYPD said the man told them the same thing, and police did not file a report at the time because no one seemed to be injured.

After the video of the fight appeared on social media, investigators are now looking to identify the people involved in the brawl.

The NYPD’S Sergeants Benevolent Association retweeted the original video after it was posted and called out New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rejection of the state’s plan to hire 500 additional cops to patrol the city’s subways.

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t think the Governor should add 500 more MTA police officers to make the subways safer. Watch & you decide as a woman is assaulted, thrown to the ground and kicked,” the SBA said. “This is a NYC subway.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or submit tips by logging on to the CrimeStoppers website, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. Police said that all calls are strictly confidential.

1,400 Seattle students without updated vaccinations could be banned from class: report

Students in Seattle who do not have the required vaccinations could be prevented from returning to class when school resumes on Jan. 8, officials said.

As of Friday, some 1,400 students did not have up-to-date vaccination records, according to officials with Seattle Public Schools, as reported by Q13 Fox. 

THE FLU HAS SICKENED THIS STATE THE MOST, REPORT FINDS 

“It’s going to be a matter of the district and the school, principals and teachers and nurses doing everything they can right here at the finish line to get all the students’ records updated come January 8,” Tim Robinson, a spokesperson for Seattle Public Schools, told the news station. Free vaccination clinics were offered over winter break, he noted, adding the number of students without up-to-date vaccination records is expected to decline before the Wednesday deadline.

That said, those who do not meet the deadline will not be allowed to return to school “until the required information is provided to the school nurse,” according to a December statement on the Seattle Public Schools website.

The news comes after a new Washington State law that does away with personal and/or philosophical exemptions to the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine went into effect over the summer. The law “also requires that students are fully vaccinated, be in the process of completing immunizations or have a signed Certificate of Exemption (religious or medical exemption) in order to attend school,” as per the statement.

Any missed days over outdated immunizations records will be counted as unexcused absences, the district said, noting they will be marked as excused only after updated records are submitted.

The Seattle Public School District is comprised of 50,000 students and 104 schools, according to CNN.

“I think as responsible parents, we all should be responsible for our children,” one parent, Marieck Garcia, told Q13 Fox. “I think that’s important to keep everybody healthy.”

NASA loses contact with satellite searching for distant planets

This may be a big year for NASA with a number of upcoming projects, but 2020 is off to a rocky start for the space agency, as it announced it lost contact with the ASTERIA satellite, a small spacecraft that’s designed to look for planets outside the Solar System.

NASA JPL said it lost contact with the Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics (ASTERIA) satellite on Dec. 5. The craft, smaller than a suitcase and known as a CubeSat, was observing “a handful of nearby stars” and was able to demonstrate “that it could achieve precision measurements of the stars’ brightness,” the agency said in a release dated Jan. 3.

“With that data, scientists look for dips in a star’s light that would indicate an orbiting planet passing between the satellite and the star. (This planet-hunting technique is called the transit method.) Mission data is still being analyzed to confirm whether ASTERIA spotted any distant worlds.”

NASA 2020: MARS, RETURN TO THE MOON AND MORE

Since it completed its initial mission in February 2018, ASTERIA has been used to test a variety of functions to make CubeSats more autonomous, including the use of artificial intelligence, NASA said. “ASTERIA also made opportunistic observations of the Earth, a comet, other spacecraft in geo-synchronous orbit and stars that might host transiting exoplanets,” the space agency added.

“The ASTERIA project achieved outstanding results during its three -month prime mission and its nearly two-year-long extended mission,” said JPL’s Lorraine Fesq, current ASTERIA program manager, in a statement. “Although we are disappointed that we lost contact with the spacecraft, we are thrilled with all that we have accomplished with this impressive CubeSat.”

ASTERIA could also aid with missions such as the Transiting Exoplanet Satellite Survey (TESS), the replacement for the Kepler satellite. TESS has made a number of exoplanet discoveries, including its most recent find of an alien world that “should not exist” in its current location.

NASA: ANCIENT MARS OASIS COULD HAVE SUPPORTED LIFE

Even if NASA is unable to regain contact with ASTERIA, it said scientists will still be able to conduct experiments on the autonomy programs utilizing the mission testbed, a replica of the craft’s internal hardware.

ASTERIA has been sending data to NASA since 2017. Since completing its initial mission in February 2018, it has performed three mission extensions. NASA said attempts to contact the craft “are expected to continue into March 2020.”

Florida man, 95, smothered in nursing home by man seen holding pillow over victim’s face, police say

Authorities in Florida are searching for a man who ran from a room at a nursing home early Sunday after a 95-year-old resident was found dead, smothered in the residence.

The Port St. Lucie Police Department said in a news release posted to Facebook that dispatchers received a call around 12:11 a.m. from the Tiffany Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center from someone reporting that a patient was “being hurt” by an unknown suspect.

A nurse had walked past a male patient’s room and saw an unknown male suspect sitting on top of the 95-year-old’s chest, holding a pillow over his face, according to police.

The incident happened shortly after midnight at the Tiffany Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Port. St. Lucie, Fla. (Port St. Lucie Police Department)

The male suspect then immediately took off running and fled the facility as police were called to the scene.

Police set up a perimeter and searched for the man, bringing in K-9 and aerial units, but they were unable to locate the man.

Residents in the area said the neighborhood is usually “pretty quiet at night,” and were surprised to see police helicopters hovering overhead.
