Giuliani says media tried to cover up corruption allegations leveled against ‘honey boy’ Biden

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani lambasted the media on Sunday for what he says is its failure to investigate allegations of corruption leveled against former Vice President Joe Biden and his family.

Calling Biden the media’s “honey boy,” a fiery Giuliani accused news outlets of not only failing to investigate the former vice president’s dealings in places like Ukraine, China and Romania, but of purposely ignoring the allegations.

“The Washington press corps has been covering this up for the last three years,” Giuliani told Fox News’ Howard Kurtz of “Media Buzz.” “I’m trying to investigate a massive corruption scandal in the Obama administration.”

US AID TO UKRAINE WAS CONTINGENT ON 2016 ELECTION PROBE, GOP SENATOR SAYS US DIPLOMAT TOLD HIM

Giuliani’s appearance on “Media Buzz” comes as President Trump and his allies try to deflect negative coverage surrounding the House’s impeachment inquiry into the president amid concerns that Trump purportedly used military aid as leverage over Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to get the foreign leader’s government to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter. Trump has denied that there was any “quid pro quo” in his conversation with Zelensky.

Giuliani has accused Hunter Biden of improper activity related to his business dealings with energy company Burisma Holdings, and claims that then-Vice President Joe Biden used his office to pressure the Ukrainian government into firing top prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma.

The former vice president has publicly acknowledged that he pressured the Ukraine to fire Shokin, but denied that it had any relation to his son’s business dealings in the country and, Biden argued, was in line with pressure from other foreign leaders to fire the prosecutor.

TRUMP FIRES BROADSIDE AT ‘PILLAGING’ BIDENS, CLAIMS UKRAINE PUSH WAS ONLY ABOUT ‘CORRUPTION’

“We weren’t pressing Ukraine to get rid of a tough prosecutor. We were pursuing Ukraine to replace a weak prosecutor who wouldn’t do the job,” Biden said on Wednesday of an Obama administration policy supported by other Western governments that viewed Shokin as incompetent or perhaps corrupt.

The U.S. also had support internationally for its opposition to Shokin. Ukrainian officials, including Shokin’s successor, have since said the Bidens were never implicated in any wrongdoing.

Directly addressing the accusations being leveled against him, Biden’s campaign last week wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News and CNN to voice “grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump.”

Speaking to the Biden campaign’s request on Sunday, Giuliani continued his criticism of the news media and argued that even when he does appear on television, he is unable to answer a question without interruption. During his interview on “Media Buzz,” Kurtz continually had to attempt to get Giuliani to answer his questions and stay on the topic being discussed.

“You don’t let me get a sentence out,” Giuliani told Kurtz. “[The media] contradict me the minute I start speaking.”

Fox News’ Gregg Re and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This isn’t material greed itself.

It’s complete emotional capture to an ideology where they believe they’re religious chosen ones.

To an outsider it’s simple material greed.

To them it’s just plain fact they’re special and should be doing as they are.

The American public needs to see this as complete corruption of these people’s emotional agency. It’s biological, their brains cannot help but retrieve the fact this is all justified because of a lifetime of being told it is.

This is pure emotional corruption driven by American cultures years of acceptance and normalizing of the domination of the globe by neoliberalism.

They’re effectively junkies.

But sit here on Reddit instead and still be amazed at these snowflakes behaving exactly like they have been for decades. That’ll get you somewhere.

California ‘team of junior detectives’ help find missing 97-year-old woman with dementia

A group of young neighborhood sleuths in California is being hailed for their efforts last week to help find a missing woman.

The Roseville Police Department had posted to Facebook last Monday asking the public for help to locate a missing woman.

Glenneta Belford, 97, was reported missing around 4:15 p.m. in northwest Roseville, spurring police activity in the area. Officials said the 97-year-old suffers from dementia and is nonverbal.

UTAH TEEN WHO SURVIVED BEING SHOT IN THE HEAD CROWNED HOMECOMING QUEEN

“Recently she’s been known to hide or hunker down in a location,” police said at the time.

As a police helicopter hovered over the neighborhood making announcements that officers were searching for the woman, a group of young sleuths began their own search of the streets for the 97-year-old. Logan Hultman, Kashton Claiborne and Makenna Rogers, who are all 10, and 11-year-old Hope Claiborne set out and eventually found Belford, several hours after she was reported missing, hiding in bushes a few blocks away from their homes.

“She was right here and she was walking and she was talking to herself. And then when we came, she said, ‘No, no, no. Go away, go away, go away,'” Kashton told FOX40.

Hope, the oldest of the group, knew then what she had to do. 
 
“I called 911 and I said that I found this missing woman,” she told FOX40.

“Our surprised dispatchers took the initial call from this team of junior detectives which helped connect officers to the missing person,” police said on Facebook. “This is a great example of our exceptional community coming together to lend a helping hand. This proves a great point, age is just a number and anyone can help out in a time of need.”

The search didn’t go off without some challenges. Before they found the 97-year-old, Logan told FOX40 he went over a bump on his bike that caused him to fall off. The group had to go back home to get cleaned up.

“So we came all the way back and my brother patched me up,” he said.

Logan’s mother, Alyssa Hultman, said her son gave her a blunt reason why the group found the need to go out searching for the woman on their own.

“He looked at me like I was almost crazy and said, ‘Because somebody needed help, mom. And when people need help you go and help them. That’s what we do,’” Hultman told FOX40. “So that right there, that makes you proud.”

Bowen Yang’s Hilarious New ‘SNL’ Character Is ‘Basically The Lizzo Of China’

Westlake Legal Group 5d9a093e2100006601aaced4 Bowen Yang’s Hilarious New ‘SNL’ Character Is ‘Basically The Lizzo Of China’

It’s safe to say new “Saturday Night Live” hire Bowen Yang is having a moment as the first Chinese American cast member to join the series and so is the hilarious new character he debuted over the weekend. 

If the ongoing U.S.-China trade war has given us one thing, it’s fictional trade representative Chen Biao, aka “Trade Daddy,” who made his first of hopefully many appearances on “Weekend Update” alongside co-host Michael Che.

“You guys increase your taxes on our imports. We increase taxes on yours. Meanwhile, I’m in the middle of it all, and you know I hate the attention,” Yang’s Biao said. “JK! I’m balling out right now, cuz I’m the top tariff taskmaster.”

When Che admitted he didn’t expect a top Chinese official to be so candid about such a pressing issue, Biao explained it’s his time to shine. 

“I’m having my moment. I’m basically the Lizzo of China right now,” he replied. “And turns out I’m 100 percent that trade daddy.”

The comedian and podcaster continued to serve up some much-needed laughs during the segment by breaking down the economic conflict between world superpowers in terms we can all understand. 

“You need us more than we need you, because we can survive without your movies starring The Rock, but good luck without iPhones,” he added. “How are you gonna text us in the middle of the night like, ‘You up? Can you investigate Joe Biden for me?’ Stupid.”

Before leaving the segment back in the hands of Che and Colin Jost, Yang’s Biao had one last zinger for the road about how China will come out on top: “We actually built our wall. And you can see ours from space.”

And just like that an iconic “SNL” character was born.

Michael Goodwin: Hillary Clinton needs to run for president again — or get over it already

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6091839627001_6091834364001-vs Michael Goodwin: Hillary Clinton needs to run for president again — or get over it already New York Post Michael Goodwin fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc e3bb5ad2-6847-566e-9f3b-9d2092deb213 article

It has been said that there are only two cures for those bitten by the presidential bug: election or death. Poor Hillary Clinton.

The most famous loser of a presidential campaign is peddling another book, so each day interviewers ask her vapid questions about how she feels. Naturally, she responds with vapid variations on a theme: Donald Trump is no good, he stole the election, the world is ending, I’m fine, thank you.

Only she’s not fine, or she wouldn’t continue to embarrass herself by trying to rewrite history. She lost the election fair and square and even the “resistance” movement no longer pretends otherwise.

More from Opinion

Yet nearly three years after the votes were counted and the states were called, and months after Robert Mueller found no collusion with Russia, she still has the nerve to insist that Trump is an “illegitimate president.”

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

A brief detour down memory lane reveals the hypocrisy. When Trump said in the third presidential debate of 2016 that he might not accept the election results, Clinton pounced on what she believed was a disqualifying mistake.

“That’s horrifying,” she replied. “Let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means. He is denigrating — he is talking down our democracy. And I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that position.”

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

Here we are, and she’s the one still contesting the results and “talking down our democracy.” Now that’s horrifying.

Her refusal to accept Trump’s election can mean only one thing: In her own mind, she won the election and she’s the real president. Oh dear.

In that case, we have another problem with only two options. She can see a shrink, or prove she’s right.

Run, Hillary, run.

NBC’s Chuck Todd Slams Sen. Ron Johnson For Pushing Fox News ‘Propaganda’

Westlake Legal Group 5d9a009b2100002504323820 NBC’s Chuck Todd Slams Sen. Ron Johnson For Pushing Fox News ‘Propaganda’

NBC’s Chuck Todd interviewed Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) about President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, the center of an impeachment inquiry into the president, and things quickly got heated.

During Sunday’s episode of “Meet The Press,” Todd asked Johnson why he said he “winced” when a U.S. ambassador told him that aid to Ukraine was contingent on an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, who is a frontrunner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. 

But Johnson, a member of the Senate foreign relations committee, dodged the question and instead pushed a conspiracy theory about the origins of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“What does this have to do with Ukraine?” Todd interrupted. “I have no idea why a Fox News conspiracy propaganda stuff is popping up on here.”

Johnson responded by defending Trump and his supporters for being “upset” with the media.

“This is not about the media,” Todd cut in, growing visibly frustrated. “Senator Johnson, please. Can we please answer the question that I asked you instead of trying to make Donald Trump feel better here that you’re not criticizing him? I’m just trying to ask a simple question.”

Johnson then acknowledged that he was upset to hear military aid was being withheld until Ukraine committed to investigate Biden.

“I didn’t want those connected,” he said. “But here’s the salient point of why I came forward: When I asked the president about that, he completely denied it. … He said, ‘I’d never do that.’ So that is the piece of the puzzle that I am here to report today.”

He added that he’s not trying to “defend” or “denounce” Trump, but that he simply wants the truth.

“We’re only dealing with the facts that we have, not the facts that you wish them to be,” Todd said. “You’re making a choice not to believe the investigations that have taken place.”

Johnson was part of the envoy, along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry, that traveled to Ukraine in May for the inauguration of the country’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky. After the visit, Johnson told The Wall Street Journal that he told Trump that he was confident in Zelensky as a leader.

Trump later pressed Zelensky during a July phone call to look into Biden. A U.S. intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint in August regarding the call and alleging the White House tried to cover it up.

Trump claims Biden, as vice president, demanded the notoriously corrupt prosecutor general in Ukraine be fired for the purpose of impeding an investigation into a Ukrainian gas company where his son, Hunter, served on the board. No evidence has been brought to light to suggest this and Ukrainian authorities have cleared Biden of any wrongdoing.

A 2016 bipartisan letter signed by Johnson and several other Republican senators expressed concern over Ukraine’s “entrenched corruption” and echoed Biden’s support for reforming the prosecutor general’s office.

During a subsequent interview with Todd on Sunday, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said he’s “deeply scared” by Republicans’ defense of Trump in the wake of the whistleblower complaint.

“That interview was just a giant green light to the president of the United States to continue to solicit foreign interference in presidential elections,” Murphy said of Johnson’s exchange with Todd. “This entire country should be scared that at a moment when we need patriots, what we are getting is blind partisan loyalty.”

Attention, parents: You may be doing screen time limits all wrong

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Attention, parents: You may be doing screen time limits all wrong

The World Health Organization says that compulsively playing video games now qualifies as a new mental health condition, in a move that some critics warn may risk stigmatizing too many young players. (June 18) AP

Time in front of screens – TV, video games, smartphones – hurts kids’ performance at school, right?

Not necessarily.

Some screen time is worse than others when it comes to kids and academic performance, according to a new analysis published in JAMA Pediatrics, a respected medical journal.

Television viewing, followed by video games, were the two activities most tied to poor school performance, researchers showed in a review of 58 studies published over the decades. 

That kind of screen time affected both children and teens – though overall, teens’ performance seemed to suffer the most as screen time increased. 

Other screen time, like playing on phones or surfing the internet, didn’t yield any clear indication that they were wrecking kids’ achievement.

When screen time goes wrong: How to handle your children’s smartphone, tablet and video game addictions

That means parents should set limits for individual activities, especially TV and video games.

“It’s increasingly clear that it may be time to move past ‘screen time’ as a useful term,” said Michael Robb, senior director of research for Common Sense, a nonprofit that makes entertainment and technology recommendations for families and schools. 

Still no screen time for babies: Stop putting your littles in front of screens, WHO advises

Screen time “doesn’t capture the many different ways that different kids use media and affect them in different ways,” Robb said. “We should be doing more to look at what screen time is comprised of – what shows kids are watching, what games they’re playing, what they’re doing online – and how media and tech are being used.”

Researchers across the country are trying to figure out whether a digitally addicted culture, particularly among kids, spells trouble for the future.

There’s no doubt about screen addiction. Pew Research Center found last year that 95% of teenagers have a smartphone or access to one, and 45% say they are near-constantly online. In fact, many are digitally tethered nearly around the clock.

Nearly 4 in 10 children keep their mobile phones within reach of their bed, according to a survey published in May by Common Sense. They are twice as likely as their parents to have their phone actually in bed with them, with girls outpacing boys 33% to 26%.

This new analysis is important because it separates out the screens most closely associated with leisure time – TV and video games – as opposed to those that can be used in conjunction with school work, said Victor Fornari, vice chairman of the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry department at Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks, New York.

Still want to keep your existing limit? That’s still good for your kids, another study showed

“We are raising a population of overweight and obese youth,” Fornani told USA TODAY. He said the bottom-line result of the study is about keeping an eye on your kids.

“Parents always have to monitor kids and how much game playing they have,” Fornari said. “Parents have to do more. They have to be very involved with what kids are doing on their screen time.”

Legal Team Says It Represents a Second Whistle-Blower Over Trump and Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group 06dc-trump-facebookJumbo Legal Team Says It Represents a Second Whistle-Blower Over Trump and Ukraine Zelensky, Volodymyr Whistle-Blowers United States Politics and Government Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry Stephanopoulos, George ABC News

WASHINGTON — A lawyer for the whistle-blower whose complaint set off an impeachment inquiry of President Trump said Sunday that the same legal team was now representing a second whistle-blower, an intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the president’s interactions with Ukraine.

The new whistle-blower “made a protected disclosure under the law and cannot be retaliated against,” Mark S. Zaid, one of the lawyers, said on Twitter.

Mr. Zaid confirmed a report by the ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos on his show, “This Week,” which said the new whistle-blower had already been interviewed by the intelligence community’s inspector general’s office, but had not yet communicated with any congressional committees.

Another member of the legal team confirmed on Twitter that the firm was now representing “multiple whistleblowers” but declined to comment further.

The New York Times reported on Friday that an intelligence official with more direct knowledge of Mr. Trump’s dealing with Ukraine than the first whistle-blower, and who had grown alarmed by the president’s behavior, was weighing whether to come forward. The second official was among those interviewed by the intelligence community inspector general to corroborate the allegations of the original whistle-blower, one of the people briefed on the matter said.

The new whistle-blower matches the description of the official that The Times reported on last week. Mr. Zaid said he did not know whether the individual was the same person.

It is also not clear if the new whistle-blower will file a formal complaint. Mr. Zaid said the second whistle-blower’s act of coming forward to the inspector general had already secured whistle-blower protections.

The first whistle-blower, a C.I.A. officer who was detailed to the National Security Council, filed a complaint in August outlining how Mr. Trump used his power to push Ukraine to investigate his domestic political rivals, setting off an impeachment inquiry. Mr. Trump has tried to undermine the credibility of the first whistle-blower, whose identity is not publicly known, by saying that the individual was trading on secondhand information.

“The first so-called second hand information ‘Whistleblower’ got my phone conversation almost completely wrong, so now word is they are going to the bench and another ‘Whistleblower’ is coming in from the Deep State, also with second hand info,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday night, referring to his now-infamous July 25 phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, in which he leaned on Mr. Zelensky to investigate Joseph R. Biden Jr., the former vice president and current presidential candidate, as well as his son Hunter Biden. “Keep them coming!”

Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, framed the news of the new whistle-blower on Sunday as a political hit on the president. “SURPRISE Democrat lawyer has other secret sources,” Mr. Giuliani wrote on Twitter. He added that the bottom line was that there was “no quid pro quo” attached to Mr. Trump’s pressure on Ukrainian officials to investigate his political rivals, and called the story an “ORCHESTRATED DEM CAMPAIGN LIKE KAVANAUGH,” referring to the sexual misconduct allegations against Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Mr. Zaid works for Compass Rose Legal Group, a law firm that specializes in representing whistle-blowers. He is part of the legal team that is now representing both individuals who have come forward. The team also includes Andrew P. Bakaj, the lead lawyer, and I. Charles McCullough III.

“I can confirm that my firm and my team represent multiple whistleblowers in connection to the underlying August 12, 2019, disclosure to the Intelligence Community Inspector General,” Mr. Bakaj said on Twitter. “No further comment at this time.”

Michigan boy, 12, burned in ‘fire challenge’ game, mom says

Westlake Legal Group police-lights- Michigan boy, 12, burned in 'fire challenge' game, mom says Nicole Darrah fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/michigan fox-news/us/disasters/fires fox-news/health fox news fnc/health fnc e23044a3-9884-5bbe-812d-6a518a49da01 article

A 12-year-old Michigan boy is suffering from severe burns after partaking in the “fire challenge” — and his mother is speaking out in an effort to warn other parents.

Jason Cleary, of Dearborn Heights, was playing with a friend on Sept. 28 when his mother, Tabitha Cleary, heard screaming.

“So we came running out. That’s when we saw his friend Bryce riding him on the bike with no shirt on,” Cleary told WDIV-TV. “I start to freak out. ‘Take him to the hospital, take him to the hospital.’ I’m crying. He’s crying.”

‘FIRE CHALLENGE’ LEAVES MICHIGAN GIRL, 12, WITH SEVERE BURNS OVER HALF HER BODY

She said the 12-year-old boy suffered burns on his chin, chest and stomach after he was sprayed with nail polish remover and lit on fire — part of a so-called “social media challenge” in which children light each other on fire.

Jason told the news outlet the first time he was set on fire, the flame “was little, and they swatted if off.” But on the second time, “they kept spraying it (nail polish remover) on me.”

The boy isn’t the first child to participate in this dangerous craze. A 12-year-old girl in Detroit was left with 49 percent of her body burned in August 2018 after playing the challenge.

Her mother told WJBK at the time that the girl was hanging out with two friends at her house when she became “engulfed in flames” after apparently mimicking a video she saw on YouTube.

Another child, 13-year-old Miyah Landers, was also burned around the same time, after accidentally being lit on fire by a friend.

Jason’s mother is trying to warn parents about such challenges — and urging them to monitor their children.

“I just want everybody to know that these challenges, or whatever they are watching on YouTube, is not worth your risking your life,” Cleary said. “I mean, my son got burns second-degree and could have been way, way worse.”
