Ross Perot donated to Trump’s re-election campaign before death: report

In his last documented political act, self-made billionaire and two-time presidential candidate Ross Perot wrote out two checks to President Trump’s re-election campaign before succumbing to his battle with leukemia at the age of 89, according to a report.

Perot, who ran for president as a third-party candidate in 1992 and 1996, is largely credited with providing a road map for Trump’s presidential campaign.

Like Trump, Perot ran as a billionaire populist against the Republican establishment. His focus on the North American Free Trade Agreement – rather than the national debt – and his use of cable news for laying out his agenda were both familiar elements of Trump’s campaign.

As Democratic strategist James Carville put it in a 2016 podcast: “If Donald Trump is the of Jesus of the disenchanted, displaced non-college white voter, then Perot was the John the Baptist of that sort of movement.”

ROSS PEROT ECHOED POPULIST SENTIMENTS 25 YEARS BEFORE RISE OF TRUMP, PRESIDENTIAL HISTORIAN SAYS

In 2000, Trump briefly considered running for president in Perot’s Reform Party before scrapping the idea. Perot’s model, of running as a third-party candidate in a two-party political system, taught Trump that he needed to run as a Republican in 2016 – a lesson that ultimately led to his victory.

In March, Perot wrote two checks of the maximum legal limit to Trump’s reelection campaign, including next year’s general election, the Boston Globe reported.

Hannity: ‘All-out war’ going on within the Democratic Party

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057206169001_6057202077001-vs Hannity: 'All-out war' going on within the Democratic Party Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 545bcfa2-7979-5e62-9a57-b5a475e4d297

Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke Tuesday about the “all-out war” within the Democratic Party on his television show saying that all Republicans can do is watch while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cotez, D-N.Y., jockey for position.

“An all-out war war is erupting inside the Democratic party, as speaker, in name only, Nancy Pelosi continues to lose control of her caucus and she’s losing it to freshman congresswoman… Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the new extreme left,” Hannity said.

JONATHAN SWAN: PELOSI UNDERESTIMATING PROGRESSIVE FORCE INSIDE HER OWN PARTY

Hannity outlined the political beef and also pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez is now targeting her fellow Democrats who do not align with her and her group.

“The real speaker showing no signs of backing down because Ocasio-Cortez is now using Pelosi’s own words against her. Rehashing Pelosi’s previous attacks, like when she said ‘a glass of water could have won in her district’ and tweeting yesterday, ‘Those aren’t quotes for me, they are from the speaker. Having respect for ourselves does not mean we lack respect for her,'” Hannity said.

“It doesn’t stop there because the far left group aligned with the congresswoman is now targeting, yes, targeting, Democratic incumbents who have defied to the parties extreme freshman wing.”

The Fox Host accused Ocasio-Cortez of creating her own “enemies list” and resetting the agenda of her party.

“Ocasio-Cortez literally keeping an enemies list, apparently of targets… inside her own party, rather. This is an all out Democratic circular firing squad. The new radical left setting the agenda, everything from higher taxes, open borders, and, yes, the economy-killing so-called climate change alarmism,” Hannity said.

Hannity predicted the entire Democratic Party would move “further left.”

“These wounds are going to get deeper and deeper and the fight louder and louder, because every time Pelosi tries to get her power back and gavel back, the new extreme Democrats, they get louder and louder and move further and further to the left,” Hannity said.

New York woman says she was drugged, raped, thrown from balcony at Dominican Republic resort: report

A New York woman was allegedly drugged, raped, and thrown from the second-story balcony while vacationing in the Dominican Republic last month, according to a report.

The Staten Island resident, whose identity has not been released, told ABC7 the assault left her with a damaged spine, a slashed hand, and internal trauma from the rape.

She said she was likely drugged while talking with another couple at a poolside bar at the Ocean Blue and Sand in Punta Cana where she was staying, the report said. The resort did not comment on the alleged incident when reached by ABC7.

She added that a man, with whom she’d shared a few drinks, took her to a room against her will and raped her before throwing her from the room’s balcony, according to the report.

“People go on vacation,” she said. “They put their guard down half of the time. They are trying to relax, but I want people to know, you can’t have your guard down. You always have to be careful. It could happen at any time. This didn’t happen at night time. This happened in broad day.”

A couple was arrested on charges of sexual assault, attempted murder, violence against, and robbery, ABC7 reported. They’ve since been released after each paid a $1,000 bail, the report said.

Megan Rapinoe rips Trump WH visit, says she’d accept invites from Pelosi, AOC

U.S. Women’s Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe doubled down in her opposition to visit the Trump White House on Tuesday but expressed that she was open to accept invitations from anyone who “believes the same things we believe in” like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY.

Rapinoe’s feud with the president began last month when she declared she was “not going to the f—ing White House,” which prompted a response from Trump on Twitter.

“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” Trump exclaimed, later adding that he would invite the team to the White House “win or lose.”

Following her team’s victory at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Rapinoe told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that she has yet to receive a formal invitation from the White House nor does she appear to want it.

“I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked hard to build and the things that we fight for and the way that we live our life,” Rapinoe said, “I don’t think we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration… There are so many other people that I would rather talk to and have meaningful conversations that can really affect change in Washington than going to the White House.”

When asked if she had a message for the president, she took a moment to ponder.

“Your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me. You’re excluding people that look like me. You’re excluding people of color. You’re excluding Americans that maybe support you,” she told Trump. “We need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you’re saying about ‘Make America Great Again.’ I think you are harking back to an era that was not great for everyone.”

Rapinoe urged the president that he has an “incredible responsiblity” to “take care of every single person and you need to better for everyone.”

After her icy words for Trump, she spoke warmly about potential meetings with Democratic lawmakers in a future trip to Washington D.C.

“This is such a special moment for us and to be able to sort of leverage this moment, talk about the things we want to talk about and to celebrate like this with the leaders of our country is an incredible moment,” Rapinoe continued. “So yes to AOC, yes to Pelosi, yes to a bipartsan Congress, yes to Chuck Schumer, yes to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation and that believe in the same things we believe in.”

Ex-Marine accused by Spain of North Korean embassy break-in freed on bail

A former U.S. Marine accused of breaking into North Korea’s embassy in Madrid and assaulting diplomatic personnel was freed on $1.3 million bond in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

As a condition of his release, Christopher Ahn must confine himself to his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Chino Hills ahead of his possible extradition to Spain and must wear an ankle monitor.

CALLS GROW TO DROP CASE AGAINST US MARINE AND ACTIVIST AND ACTIVISTS IN NORTH KOREA EMBASSY INTRUSION

“I spent a lot of time reading about you and I’m confident you’re going to do the right thing,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Jean Rosenbluth told Ahn, who had several family members in attendance at the hearing.

Ahn can only leave his home for medical appointments and church. He is expected to be released in the coming days.

Spanish authorities have charged Ahn, 38, who spent six years in the Marines and served in Iraq, with breaking into the North Korean embassy with five others on February 22. They said the group beat some embassy staff and held them hostage for hours before fleeing.

The charges include breaking and entering, robbery with violence and causing injuries, according to U.S. court documents.

NORTH KOREAN REFUGEE: WE TOOK HUGE RISKS TO HELP OTHERS REACH FREEDOM. WHY ARE US, SPAIN PUNISHING US?

Ahn is said to be a member of Free Joseon, or the Cheollima Civil Defense, an activist group which supports North Korean defectors and seeks to overthrown North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Two people allegedly involved in the embassy incident are still at large, including Adrian Hong, a Mexican national and longtime U.S. resident who is the purported leader of the group.

Attorneys for Free Joseon said the allegations of violence are lies from Kim’s diplomats, who they say made up the story to save their own skins. They claim the group members were invited inside and that there were no problems.

“The extradition papers from Spain confirm that almost the entire case against Mr. Ahn is based on uncorroborated statements made by high-ranking North Korean officials,” Ahn’s attorney Naeun Rim told Fox News in a statement last week.

Video obtained by Fox News shows the activists walking into the embassy and chatting with a member of Kim’s diplomatic corps. One activist takes official photographs of Kim and his father Kim Jong II from a wall and smashes them on the floor.

Ahn was arrested by U.S. agents in April in Los Angeles. His actions have made him a target of the Kim regime, Rosenbluth said in an order conditionally granting him bail.

Prosecutors objected to Ahn’s release, citing him as a flight risk.

“It’s like a huge weight has been lifted off of our shoulders knowing that he’s going to be home, he’s going to be with loved ones, we can visit with him now,” Juan Sanabria, a former Marine who served with Ahn, told Reuters.

California becomes 1st state to give taxpayer-funded health benefits to illegal immigrants

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6046476994001_6046474144001-vs California becomes 1st state to give taxpayer-funded health benefits to illegal immigrants Frank Miles fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/politics/state-and-local/issues fox-news/politics/state-and-local/governors fox-news/politics/state-and-local/controversies fox news fnc/politics fnc article 01a72d94-7aa2-51c4-98c4-ccfcccc7d36a

Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., signed a bill into law on Tuesday making young illegal immigrants eligible for the Medicaid program in California, making it the first state to offer such taxpayer-funded health benefits to low-income adults age 25 and younger regardless of their immigration status.

State officials said they expected the plan to cover about 90,000 people and cost taxpayers $98 million. California already covered children 18 and younger regardless of immigration status.

The law will not give health insurance benefits to everyone 25 and younger, but only those whose income is low enough to qualify.

TAMMY BRUCE: BORDER CRISIS PUTS US (AND MIGRANT FAMILIES) AT RISK FOR DANGEROUS INFECTIOUS DISEASES

Newsom and fellow Democrats in the state legislature said they planned to expand coverage to more adults in the years to come.

Advocates of the measure have called it a way to improve the health of immigrants in the state by providing them with access to the medical care they need.

CALIFORNIA DEMS AGREE TO FULL HEALTH BENEFITS FOR MANY LOW-INCOME ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, IN SWIPE AT TRUMP

Many immigrants in the country illegally already have been enrolled for some government-funded programs, but they covered only emergencies and pregnancies.

Democrats had pushed to expand the coverage to even more adults, but Newsom rejected the proposals, saying it would cost about $3.4 billion to provide coverage to all California adults living in the country illegally.

But, he still has vowed to keep expanding coverage in future years.

Jim Jordan: Dems oppose census citizenship question over fear of exposing non-citizens, illegal immigrants

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Jordan_FOX Jim Jordan: Dems oppose census citizenship question over fear of exposing non-citizens, illegal immigrants fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/executive fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 225bc0eb-0553-5c24-98fa-18adc2ec5b51

Democrats oppose the presence of a citizenship question on the 2020 census because it will expose how many people in the U.S. are either non-citizens or here illegally, according to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

“I think they are a little nervous about what the number may be,” Jordan said Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”  You actually may find out how many people — maybe it’s not 11 million, the number we hear all the time. Maybe it’s a higher number of people who are here who aren’t citizens or here in some illegal fashion.”

TED CRUZ: CITIZENSHIP QUESTION ON CENSUS IS ‘BASIC COMMON SENSE’

The decennial census delineates congressional districts by population, meaning anyone counted in the census adds to that apportionment, the congressman added.

In addition, host Tucker Carlson questioned why the Democrats, the self-described “party of science” would be against “gathering data.”

“They have no real explanation for that,” said Carlson, who added that other countries, including neighboring Canada, have a citizenship question on their census and are not deemed “racist.”

In response, Jordan remarked that the “racism” claim was what opponents “use all the time when they want to accuse us of things they disagree with or want a different policy.”

“[Supreme Court Justice Samuel] Alito said it best — no one disagrees that it’s important to know how many immigrants are in your country,” said Jordan, who added the question has been included in most census tallies going back to the Monroe administration.

“In one form or another, it’s been asked for 200 years,” he said. ” …This is … so common sense.”

Democratic megadonor Ed Buck now facing allegations of human trafficking, revenge porn

Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor suspected in the deaths of two black men who suffered fatal crystal methamphetamine overdoses in his home 18 months apart, is now facing allegations of human trafficking and revenge porn, according to a new report.

The Daily Beast reported that the family of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore has made the new allegations as part of an ongoing civil case against Buck, who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party candidates in California and is well known in LGBTQ political circles. Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose in July 2017. He was found naked on a mattress in Buck’s living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.

The complaint by Moore’s family previously alleged that Buck injected Moore with crystal meth and required Moore to view “hardcore gay male pornography which played loudly on a large flatscreen television set,” while engaging in sex acts, according to the Beast.

SECOND MAN FOUND DEAD OF OVERDOSE WITH DEMOCRATIC DONOR ED  BUCK WAS NO DRUG ABUSER, FRIENDS SAY

The latest allegation from Moore’s family claims that Buck “knowingly utilized interstate commerce for the purpose of recruiting, enticing and transporting” Moore from Texas to Los Angeles, for “commercial sex acts.”

The complaint claims that Buck paid for Moore’s transportation and promised to pay Moore for the rendezvous. It also said Buck distributed a sexually explicit video recording of Moore to “one of several unnamed defendants” in April of this year.

The case was originally filed in Los Angeles Superior Court but moved to federal court in May.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, didn’t return Fox News’ calls or emails, but told the Daily Beast that he would “reserve our comment to our court filings and we will be aggressively litigating this.”

The second man who died at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment, 55-year-old Timothy Dean, also suffered a methamphetamine overdose, according to a report.

Prosecutors didn’t file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence.

The complaint claims that Buck paid for Moore’s transportation and promised to pay Moore for the rendezvous. It also said Buck distributed a sexually explicit video recording of Moore to “one of several unnamed defendants” in April of this year.

The case was originally filed in Los Angeles Superior Court but moved to federal court in May.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, didn’t return Fox News’ calls or emails, but told the Daily Beast that he would “reserve our comment to our court filings and we will be aggressively litigating this.”

The second man who died at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment, 55-year-old Timothy Dean, also suffered a methamphetamine overdose, according to a report.

Charlie Hurt: Joe Biden has been ‘part of the problem in DC for 50 years’

Former Vice President Joe Biden constant push to become president has made him a big part of the problem with the federal government, according to Charlie Hurt.

In his time in D.C., Biden’s main focus has been trying to win his way to the Oval Office, Hurt claimed Tuesday on “The Story.”

“People forget Joe Biden has been part of the problem in Washington for nearly 50 years,” he said.

“The entire time he’s been in Washington, he’s been trying to figure out how to become president. He’s run a couple of times and it’s been disastrous.

BIDEN MAKES ANOTHER EYEBROW-RAISING CAMPAIGN PROMISE

“The closest he’s ever gotten to the White House is when Barack Obama needed somebody that fit his description. It’s a good reminder that he really is kind of bad at this.”

Looking at past elections, the Washington Times opinion editor added the current crop of more liberal Democratic candidates resembles a candidate from the 2004 presidential election.

Hurt said many Democratic voters didn’t like then-President George W. Bush, but instead of immediately coalescing around a centrist Democrat, they sought politicians like former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

“They ran off with Howard Dean for a long time, and then at the last minute they were reminded electability was the only thing they cared about, so they jumped into the arms of John Kerry,” he said. “Of course it didn’t work out so well.”

On the campaign trail, Biden recently raised eyebrows with his latest campaign promise — this time, pledging to cut prison incarceration by “more than” 50 percent.

Speaking with an ACLU member at a campaign event on in South Carolina over the weekend, Biden was asked about the initiative being headed by the organization to develop a “roadmap for cutting incarceration by 50 percent.”

“Do you commit to cutting incarceration by 50 percent?” the man, who identified himself as an ACLU member, asked.

“More than that,” Biden responded. “We can do it more than that.”
