Trump agrees with AOC that VA ‘isn’t broken,’ but only because of his administration

President Trump on Wednesday said he agreed with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., that the Department of Veteran Affairs doesn’t need fixing, but insisted that it was his administration that made it better.

The freshman lawmaker said during a recent town hall event in New York that the VA isn’t broken and is actually providing “some of the highest quality” care to veterans.

“All I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always taught me growing up, is that: ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,’” she added, as part of her argument against privatizing aspects of the scandal-scarred agency’s work.

Trump tweeted on Wednesday that Ocasio-Cortez was “correct” that the VA is not broken, but only because his administration had passed the “Veterans Choice & Accountability.”

Ocasio-Cortez is the latest big name on the left to espouse a position that, intentionally or not, matches with Trump’s policies. Earlier this month, Cher questioned Los Angeles’ ability to handle a large influx of illegal immigrants when it has 50,000 homeless on its streets.

Trump vows to defy Hill subpoenas, but will the public care?

It has constitutional crisis written all over it.

But I’m not sure it will play that way with much of the public.

By vowing not to cooperate with a spate of House Democratic probes, President Trump is gambling that people are sick of the whole investigative culture and it won’t hurt him politically. And he’s also betting that having survived the Mueller investigation, he can make Congress look petty and partisan in pursuing what he dismissed yesterday as “nonsense.”

DOJ REJECTS SUBPOENA FROM HOUSE DEMS FOR TESTIMONY FROM TOP OFFICIAL JOHN GORE

The fundamental problem with this approach is that Congress is an equal branch of government. It doesn’t matter what Bob Mueller’s probe found, lawmakers have their own responsibility to oversee the executive branch, just as Republicans did during the Obama and Clinton administrations.

Still, Trump flatly told The Washington Post that he sees no reason to comply with the mounting Hill requests for testimony and documents. “There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it’s very partisan — obviously very partisan … I don’t want people testifying to a party, because that is what they’re doing if they do this,” he said.

The president was equally dismissive with reporters yesterday: “The subpoena is ridiculous … We just went through the Mueller witch hunt where you had really 18 angry Democrats that hate President Trump. They hate him with a passion.”

Among the issues: Trump is close to invoking executive privilege to block former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying under House subpoena.

McGahn became a key witness in the special counsel’s probe, testifying that he refused the president’s order to have Mueller fired and threatened to resign instead.

TRUMP VOWS TO FIGHT ‘ALL’ SUBPOENAS AGAINST ADMINISTRATION, CALLS DEMAND FOR MCGAHN TESTIMONY ‘RIDICULOUS’

Another House committee is threatening to hold former White House personnel security director Carl Kline in contempt for not showing up to testify about security clearances. Treasury is also resisting a House demand for Trump’s tax returns.

These battles tend to drag on for a very long time, often winding up in the courts. Richard Nixon famously used executive privilege to try to protect the Watergate coverup. But every modern president (and some not so modern) has clashed with Congress, usually with the opposition party, over hearings and investigations. For Barack Obama, it was Benghazi and Fast and Furious, among other issues.

The Democrats are naturally outraged by the Trumpian tactics, with Nancy Pelosi saying: “Now we see the administration engaging in stonewalling of the facts coming to the American people.”

What’s highly unusual about Trump’s approach is that rather than fighting one or two requests on specific grounds, he appeared with the Post to just make a blanket statement of noncooperation.

In fact, Axios quoted a “source familiar with the president’s legal strategy” as saying, “Trump can run out the clock by taking a hardline position. The president thinks it’s in his political interest to keep the fight going, and make it harder for the Democrats to have a coherent message.”

Trump told reporters that Congress should get back to dealing with issues. “These aren’t like impartial people. The Democrats are trying to win 2020,” he said. This echoes what liberals said on Bill Clinton’s behalf during the allegations that led to his impeachment, that everyone should “move on,” which became the name of a left-wing group.

But all of this may become background noise to average voters, already numbed by two years of constant investigations and media scrutiny of this president. They may not share the view that constitutional principles and the separation of powers are on the line. If the whole back-and-forth seems unduly partisan, many may dismiss the rhetoric as just more game-playing in a hyperpolarized capital.

Footnote: Trump got into an odd back-and-forth with Post reporter Robert Costa, who had tweeted: “President Trump called me this evening, in response to my request for comment on a profile story on a Trump World figure. After speaking on that topic, he took a few questions about his administration’s standoff with Congress. We’ll publish those remarks tonight.”

Yesterday Trump offered this Twitter taunt: “I didn’t call Bob Costa of the Washington Post. He called me (Returned his call)! Just more Fake News.”

Um, isn’t that what Costa said? Maybe Trump just didn’t like the story.

Australian robbery suspect uses unusual disguise during heist: cops

At least he reuses his bags!

An armed robber in Queensland, Australia, raised eyebrows after he appeared to give up on a blue reusable bag he was using to conceal his identity and instead used it to carry out stolen cash and goods from a gas station, according to police.

FLORIDA THIEVES USE SLEDGEHAMMERS TO STEAL OVER $340G OF JEWELRY: POLICE

Security footage shows a man enter a gas station store in Caboolture, north of Brisbane, around 8:30 p.m. with a blue reusable shopping bag over his head to mask his identity, police said. The man allegedly threatens the female clerk with a knife who then hands over cigarettes and opens the register for the thief.

The robber first stashed the goods in his pockets, but then removes the bag from his head to carry the remaining bundles of money and cigarettes packs from the shop, leaving his face on full view to cameras in the process, police said.

Swalwell says Trump may still be a Russian asset despite Mueller report

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., on Wednesday refused to acknowledge that the Mueller Report failed to establish evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia and appeared to double down on his claims that President Trump put’s Russia’s interest before the U.S.

Swalwell has been one of Trump’s most vocal Democratic critics and has announced his bid for 2020 presidential elections.

MSNBC host Ari Melber challenged Swalwell during his appearance.

“Do you accept the findings in the Mueller report that do not support some of those claims?” Melber asked Swalwell.

“I accept that I probably should have been out there a little bit earlier because who knew how many links there were? 200 pages of links,” Swalwell said. Melber pressed him again, asking if he no longer maintained that Trump is a “Russian asset.”

“No, I think he acts on Russia’s behalf and I challenge him to show me otherwise,” Swalwell said.

ERIC SWALWELL: NO APOLOGY NECESSARY FOR SURVEILLING TRUMP CAMPAIGN

The host asked him one more time about the distance between his allegations of conspiracy and the findings in the Mueller report. Swalwell replied that he believes Trump puts Russia’s “interests ahead of our interests,” citing “Assad in Syria, he wants to reduce the role of NATO, he continues to pull back sanctions on Russia, he won’t tell us what he talked about with Vladimir Putin and he won’t tell us anything about his finances with the Russians.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report released late last month revealed Mueller did not establish evidence that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia.

Swalwell has long been a critic of the president and even documented his determination to not buy coffee at Trump Tower on Twitter in February.

Trump has railed against Mueller’s report, even resorting to public profanity in dismissing it, but has also embraced it, claiming exoneration and painting any other attempt as partisan overreach.

“You want to see the nonpartisan, definitive, conclusive taxpayer-funded lengthy unobstructed, unimpeded, un-interfered with investigation? You just saw it and it’s called the Mueller report,” senior counselor Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is expected to announce his 2020 presidential candidacy Thursday, would instantly become the most “sane” candidate in the Democratic field, Lara Trump said Wednesday.

President Trump’s daughter-in-law, who also serves as a senior adviser to his 2020 re-election campaign, shared her views on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

“He certainly right now seems to look the most sane out of the candidates that we have seen,” Trump told host Sean Hannity, referring to Biden.

FORMER PRISONER RELEASED UNDER TRUMP CRIMINAL REFORM LAW DISAGREES WITH BERNIE SANDERS

But Trump said Biden may have a tough time making it through his party’s primary process on the way to the nomination and also addressed the rest of the field, which she described as “radically far left.”

“If Joe Biden gets in the race let’s see if he makes it,” Trump said. “The number of candidates that are so radically far left now in this field is unbelievable. So I don’t know, maybe Joe Biden doesn’t stand a chance. Maybe they are looking for somebody so far outside of the norm — which is crazy to me. I don’t think the American people will get behind somebody like this.”

Trump, 36, a native of North Carolina who has been married to the president’s son Eric Trump since 2014, said she believes her father-in-law will win reelection easily in 2020. She also addressed remarks by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., that convicted criminals such as the Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote.

Sanders has been under scrutiny since making the comments Monday during a CNN Town Hall event.

“And then you have, as you were just talking about, Bernie Sanders suggesting that someone who would use an event that is such a tradition in America like the Boston Marathon … as an opportunity to maim and murder scores of people, including children, Sean, and these individuals should be allotted a right to vote?” Trump said.

“Are you kidding me? It’s crazy that we are even talking about this.”

Woman arrested after complaining of vomit on Frontier Airlines seat: report

Westlake Legal Group woman-arrested-after-complaining-of-vomit-on-frontier-airlines-seat-report Woman arrested after complaining of vomit on Frontier Airlines seat: report Louis Casiano fox-news/travel/general/airlines fox news fnc/travel fnc article 2d3dadeb-8566-5bea-803e-c5eb573ac1f3

A Frontier Airlines passenger was kicked off her flight from Las Vegas to North Carolina on Saturday and arrested after an alleged confrontation with a flight attendant over vomit in her daughter’s seat, a report said.

Rosetta Swinney said her flight to Raleigh-Durham had already been delayed so staff could clean the plane. Once she boarded the aircraft, she said she noticed her daughter’s seat was still dirty.

“She jumped up to say mom! ‘My hands are wet,’” Swinney told WTVD-TV. “She smelled it. She says ‘this is vomit, mom.’ So we went to look. It was on the bag, all over her shirt, her hands.”

The airline said a flight attendant offered to seat Swinney, 53, and her daughter at either end of the plane while the seat was cleaned. Swinney disputes the airline’s version of events. She said she confronted the attendant after her requests were ignored and authorities were called to remove her and her daughter from the plane.

“The mother was unsatisfied with the response and became disruptive,” Frontier said in a statement to the station. “As a result, the flight attendants determined that the mother and daughter should be deplaned and accommodated on another flight.

Swinney spent several hours in jail and the child was placed in protective custody. Frontier refunded her the cost of the flight and she booked another flight with Delta Airlines. She faces a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

Florida bill calling for ex-felons to settle debts before voting advances after House vote

Westlake Legal Group florida-bill-calling-for-ex-felons-to-settle-debts-before-voting-advances-after-house-vote Florida bill calling for ex-felons to settle debts before voting advances after House vote fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article 2e10d6fc-7666-50dd-9569-d9c320b3c9ed

The Florida House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a bill that would require former felons to pay all court fees and costs in addition to restitution before becoming eligible to vote.

The measure passed 71-45, with the vote along party lines.

The proposal’s main sponsor, state Rep. James Grant, R-Tampa, argued that the bill — which would not restore voting rights to those convicted of murder or felony sexual offenses — helps clarify a referendum on the issue that voters approved in November. He stressed that requiring ex-felons to pay the debts was not unconstitutional and not discriminatory, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

But state Democrats — as well as some Democratic candidates for president — slammed the proposal as a form of “poll tax” that would discriminate against minorities and the poor. Poll taxes were historically used in the 1890s to bar impoverished African-Americans in Southern states from voting by requiring them to pay a fee.

FLORIDA SENATE RACE BETWEEN SCOTT, NELSON EXPECTED TO BE COMPETITIVE, COSTLY

The referendum that passed in November was meant to end the disenfranchisement of more than 1 million felons who served their time, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

U.S. Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., both of whom are seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, have slammed the bill, bringing national attention to the Florida plan.

“This is a poll tax,” Booker wrote Wednesday.

“Enough with the racist and unconstitutional efforts to deny people the right to vote,” Sanders wrote Wednesday. “If you are an American citizen you must be able to vote. End of discussion.”

Sanders sparked a furor Monday when he said during a CNN Town Hall event that even convicted criminals like Boston Maraton bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be allowed to vote from prison. President Trump’s campaign fired back that Sanders’ position was “deeply offensive.”

“The extremity and radicalism of the 2020 Democrats knows no bounds,” Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News. “Giving imprisoned terrorists, sex offenders, and murderers the right to vote is an outrageous proposal that is deeply offensive to innocent victims across this country, some of whom lost their lives and are forever disenfranchised by the very killers that 2020 Democrats seek to empower.”

While the Florida House version of the bill requires all court fees and restitution be paid, the Senate version calls for ex-felons to pay only restitution, the Miami Herald reported. The Senate will have to deliberate which version, if either, will advance to the governor’s desk.

One of America’s oldest Jewish organizations called Wednesday for U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., to be removed from congressional committees and from the Democratic Party.

In an editorial posted on its website, the Zionist Organization of America, which dates to 1897, pointed to what it described as Tlaib’s “anti-Israel record,” and accused the freshman congresswoman of associating with “terrorists, anti-Semites and conspiracy theorists.”

“Rashida Tlaib’s anti-Israel record was already well-known before she was elected in last year’s midterm elections,” the ZOA article asserts. “She calls Israel a ‘racist country’ on the basis of the lie that Israel discriminates against those ‘darker skinned,’ supports the destruction of Israel in favor of an Arab-dominated state (“It has to be one state”), ‘absolutely’ backs withholding U.S. aid from Israel, and openly supports the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is committed to international ostracism and weakening of Israel with a view to its eventual elimination.”

FRESHMAN REP. RASHIDA TLAIB INTRODUCES RESOLUTION URGING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT

The ZOA supports its assertions with links to news stories that quote the 42-year-old Palestinian-American lawmaker from Detroit.

The same article includes a list of people with whom Tlaib has been photographed, or about whom Tlaib has posted social media messages, and includes information about their alleged links to bombings or other crimes.

“It is perfectly clear that Rashida Tlaib is not in the smallest degree ashamed, and has not the slightest inhibition about, being publicly being associated with these anti-Semites, terrorists and glorifiers of Jew-murderers,” ZOA National President Morton A. Klein and Chairman Mark Levenson said in a joint statement.

JEWISH GROUPS CONDEMN RASHIDA TLAIB OVER TIES TO RADICAL PRO-HEZBOLLAH, ANTI-ISRAEL ACTIVIST

“The Democratic Party must do the only honorable thing,” they continued, “which is to expel her from the party and remove her from Congressional committees.”

Since taking office in January, Tlaib has been a lightning rod for criticism from Republicans as well as from members of her own party.

She quickly drew national attention just hours after being sworn in, when she used a profanity in calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

“We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf—er,’” she told a crowd of supporters, referring to Trump.

In March, Tlaib denounced anti-Semitism in an interview with the Detroit News.

“I’m always pushing back against it,” Tlaib said of anti-Semitism. “But this is going to continue happening because I’m Palestinian.”

She claimed that an important distinction needed to be made between anti-Semitism and her criticisms of the policies of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“When I criticize Netanyahu’s discrimination, inequality, human rights violations, saying you have to do better and we have to look at real equality and even desegregating certain communities,” Tlaib told the News, “that, to me, does not make me charging toward the Jewish faith at all. And I’m very conscientious of that.”

In April, Tlaib quickly came to the defense of another progressive Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, after Omar referred to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, as “some people did something.”

Tlaib claimed that critics had taken Omar’s words out of context.

“My sister Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about, was uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights,” Tlaib said in a television interview. “She has always, always condemned any strategy, especially of a person directly impacted by being a refugee herself.”

More recently, Tlaib asked her supporters last week to join her in a hunger strike in protest of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing that the federal agency that enforces U.S. immigration laws should be shut down.

Podcast host and comedian Adam Carolla appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday night and talked about how he deals with personal attacks and other criticism in the era of ‘wokeness.’

“I know what’s in my heart, and I hate that statement, but I know who I am.” Carolla said.

COMEDIAN TIM ALLEN TO TACKLE PC CULTURE

“You can’t convince me that I hate a sexual proclivity, hate a person, you couldn’t convince me I hated a neighbor or a friend or Hispanic, blacks, gays, whatever. You can’t bestow that up on me. That is something that is inside me, and I’m aware of it and I know I don’t. So you can’t convince me of that.”

Carolla, 54 — who from 1999 to 2003 co-hosted “The Man Show” on Comedy Central with Jimmy Kimmel — also talked about the “freedom in not caring” and why he believes more people are unable to grasp that ability.

“There is a real freedom in not caring,” Carolla said.

“Why don’t more people feel like that?” Carlson asked.

“I think there is vanity. And I think that everybody is wired to be a little bit narcissistic and no one wants to go online and read bad things about themselves. Nobody wants to read untruths or inaccurate things about themselves,” Carolla responded.

The popular podcaster criticized modern critics, calling them a “media gratification group,” and discussed how he deals with attacks.

“They are in the business of mowing you down and moving onto the next subject. You know what I mean? They are an immediate gratification group. Let’s remember these are kids who got everything they wanted immediately. If you don’t give them immediate gratification, they’re off you in two days,” Carolla said.

“This is not a long slog over months and years. This is ‘You give me what I want right now’ which is an apology or you can get fired from your job or whatever that is. You could be humiliated. You could be contrite. If you don’t give in almost immediately, they immediately move on to the next victim.”

Canadian hockey fan unknowingly blocks final moments of playoff game shown to U.S. viewers

Angry U.S. hockey fans watching Sunday’s playoff game between the NHL’s Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs were treated to the back of one spectator’s head when he stood in front of a television camera during the final moments of a frantic third period.

The Maple Leafs fan – identified only as Scott to protect him from threats online – opened his phone after watching his team lose 4-2 in Game 6 at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena– and noticed something wasn’t right.

“I looked on Instagram and I was at the top of my feed,” he told the CBC News Network on Tuesday. Some have even said: “off with his head.”

EARLY GOALS HELP BRUINS BEAT MAPLE LEAFS 5-1 IN GAME 7

Upset Bruin fans, including actor Rob Lowe, took to Twitter to complain about the obstructed view.

“Watching the Boston Toronto hockey game and literally all I can see is the back of somebody’s head. NBC: needs to get their act together right now,” Lowe tweeted.

Scott sat two rows in front of cameras at the game. When he stood to take in the action, he unknowingly blocked a large portion of ice near Boston’s goal. NBC, which broadcast the game for U.S. viewers, said technical difficulties forced the network to switch to a replacement camera during the third period. Canadian viewers had a clear view of the game, CBC reported.

The anger many Bruin fans felt presumably subsided when the team took care of the Maple Leafs with a 5-1 win Tuesday to advance to the second round against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
