San Diego Padres’ Jacob Nix arrested, shocked with Taser after allegedly entering house through doggy door

San Diego Padres pitcher Jacob Nix was reportedly arrested in Arizona on Sunday after he allegedly tried breaking into a home by squeezing through a doggy door.

Nix, 23, was with teammate Tom Cosgrove when the men entered a Phoenix yard at around 3:30 a.m. and tried to enter a home on the property, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said.

Nix — who’s 6-foot-4, 220 pounds — allegedly tried getting in through a doggy door, but he was only partially inside the house when the homeowner, who’d already called the police, confronted Nix by kicking him in the face and then shocking him with a Taser.

Nix and Cosgrove allegedly ran from the home but the duo was soon corralled by responding officers, according to FOX5 San Diego.

Nix reportedly told police he believed he was entering his own home — even though his home doesn’t have a doggy door. He couldn’t explain why he chose to enter through the canine entrance, officials said.

Nix was released by authorities and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 16.

It doesn’t appear Cosgrove was disciplined in the matter.

“We are aware of the alleged incident involving Jacob Nix last Sunday in Arizona,” the Padres said in a statement. “We take this matter seriously and have been in contact with the Commissioner’s Office and local authorities. Due to the ongoing legal proceedings, we will not have any further comment at this time.”

Authorities on Friday were still investigating the issue.

Nix spent the 2019 season in the Padres’ minor league system, appearing in six games across four different minor league levels. He was selected in the third round of the 2015 MLB draft and made his major league debut in 2018, going 2-5 with a 7.02 ERA in nine starts. Cosgrove has yet to appear in the majors.

Paralympic athlete glues himself to a British Airways jet at London City airport

An Extinction Rebellion protester glued himself to the top of a British Airways plane at London City Airport Thursday.

The man, identified by Extinction Rebellion as former Paralympic cyclist James Brown, was seen clinging to the aircraft in a video streamed online by the protest group. Brown, who is visually impaired, was arrested at Heathrow last month after a protest which saw some Extinction Rebellion activists try to fly a drone near the airport. The 54-year-old, who won a bronze medal at London 2012, glued himself to the top of a British Airways Embraer 190 jet.

AGGRESSIVE CLIMATE CHANGE PROTESTS HIT MAJOR CITIES IN EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, MORE THAN 300 ARRESTED

“Here I am on top of a f****** airplane at City Airport. I hate heights, I’m s******* myself, I managed to get on the roof. I am so shaky,” he said in a Facebook video.

“This is all about the climate and ecological crisis, we’re protesting against government inaction on climate and ecological breakdown. They declare a climate emergency and then do nothing about it.

“In fact they go the opposite direction, they sanction the expansion of airports, Heathrow, Bristol and others. We can’t let this go on, we can’t have our cake and eat it.”

He later noticed security were approaching and said, “Oh good security are coming. I hope they don’t take too long because this is f****** scary.”

He was eventually removed. A spokeswoman for British Airways said, “We are investigating what happened as a matter of urgency.” Meanwhile another protester managed to ground a flight from London City Airport to Dublin today — to the fury of the passengers on board. The Aer Lingus flight this morning was on the runway and about to take off when a smartly dressed man stood up and gave a lecture on climate change.

Filming himself on his phone, the man said, “I don’t wish to travel with you, but I don’t wish to get off. I’m extremely sorry for the inconvenience.”

Furious passengers responded saying, “You’re not sorry at all.” As their flight was held up, travelers pleaded with crew to remove the bespectacled man from the plane.

Continuing to address those on board, the man said, “We have two generations of human civilization left if we carry on doing what we are doing.”

Another passenger then asked him, “Why are you filming yourself?”

The man was later seen being led away from the aircraft by police officers. The flight, scheduled to depart at 9.40am, was delayed by 10 minutes.

Passenger Warren Swalbe tweeted, “Just about to take from London City airport. Our flight was infiltrated by a climate change protester.”

Nicholas Watt, the political editor of BBC Newsnight, wrote, “My flight from London City airport to Dublin has just been grounded by a climate change protester. On runway and about to take off when smartly dressed man in late middle age stood up with iPhone to deliver lecture on climate change up and down aisle.

“Cabin crew calmly and very politely asked protester to resume his seat. Politely but persistently he declined and proceeded to deliver his lecture on climate change in aisle. Plane was at the end of runway. So the pilot taxied back to gate where plane was met by throng of police. They came on board and escorted the protester off the plane.

“The final irony of the climate protest on our flight. We cannot take off until we have taken on extra fuel … to replace the fuel used up during the protest, our pilot notes with humor.”

Aer Lingus said the passenger was removed “due to disruptive behavior on board” and a full security check of the aircraft was completed before the plane departed.

The climate change group started their three-day “Hong Kong-style” shut down of London City Airport this morning, gluing themselves to the terminal building and dancing on a roof — but ultimately failing to cancel flights.

The latest protest is against the climate impact of flying and the government’s ongoing support of airport expansion. Hundreds of environmentalists attempted to block the entrance to the airport from the DLR by sitting together on the ground and singing “Fly today, gone tomorrow”.

Activist Phil Kingston, 83, was among those arrested — the third time he has been arrested as part of Extinction Rebellion protests in the past week.

Protesters were seen being dragged out the airport by officers after failing to break through security into the terminal. One was heard saying, “Please stop you’re hurting me.”

One activist climbed onto part of the roof of the terminal building where he was cheered by fellow protesters. Standing on the roof, he bellowed down, “Shut the airport down! Rebellion!”

He then danced on the roof as a live band played clarinet music below.

Those arriving for flights were redirected to a second terminal entrance by security workers and were not allowed to enter the building without showing their boarding cards first.

Taxi driver Jason Lempiere said that the protests had disrupted his work in and around the city. “It’s disturbing everyone’s everyday life — working, travel in and out of the airport. Yeah, have a voice, but not disrupt people’s lives like this,” he said.

Criminal case against Giuliani’s associates darkens cloud over Trump’s personal attorney, White House

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Criminal case against Giuliani's associates darkens cloud over Trump's personal attorney, White House

Two associates of Giuliani have been charged with funneling foreign money to U.S. political campaigns, and President Trump says he doesn’t know them. USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – It was at the Trump International Hotel. 

That’s where Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, huddled Wednesday with two foreign contacts who had been central to a campaign urging Ukrainian authorities to open an investigation into President Donald Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden.

By dinner time, Giuliani’s Ukrainian lunch partners, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were placed under arrest by FBI agents at Dulles International Airport, as they clutched one-way tickets to Frankfurt, Germany.

What has since spilled from federal authorities and court documents are details of a tangled criminal inquiry highlighting the efforts of Parnas and Fruman to funnel huge caches of foreign money to U.S. political campaigns – a troubling narrative that now intersects with Congress’ fast-moving inquiry into the impeachment of the president.

While neither the president nor Giuliani were named in the new campaign finance case Thursday, the four-count indictment was unsealed as three House committees had scheduled depositions this week with Parnas and Fruman to learn how they may fit – if at all – in Trump’s personal push this summer for Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter.

Trump late Thursday denied any involvement with the two men, brushing aside photographs posted on social media last year showing both men with Donald Trump Jr., and Parnas with the president, describing an “incredible dinner and even better conversation.”

‘I don’t know those gentlemen’: Trump denies knowing indicted Giuliani associates despite photos

No ‘big deal’: Trump downplays reports that Ukraine call notes were locked to avoid leaks

“Now, it’s possible I have a picture with them because I have a picture with everybody,” Trump said. “I don’t’ know about them. I don’t know what they do. … Maybe they were clients of Rudy. You have to ask Rudy. I just don’t know.”

Giuliani declined to comment when reached by USA TODAY, but his association with Parnas and Fruman has brought new potential trouble to the doorstep of the White House, as Trump already is battling the greatest threat to his presidency in the form of the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry.

Parnas, Fruman drew scrutiny

Even as Parnas and Fruman were drawing the scrutiny of Congress for arranging a January meeting in New York between Giuliani and Ukraine’s then-prosecutor general, Yuri Lutsenko, as part of the campaign to launch an investigation into the Bidens, federal prosecutors in New York were taking aim at the pair for their suspicious movement of money to political campaigns in the U.S.

What happened: Biden, allies pushed out Ukrainian prosecutor because he didn’t pursue corruption cases

According to court documents unsealed Thursday, the dual interests of the Giuliani associates sometimes overlapped.

Among the beneficiaries of their largess, prosecutors allege, was a U.S. congressman who received $5,400 last year from the pair, who also pledged to raise $20,000 for the lawmaker as they sought to enlist him in an effort to remove Marie Yovanovitch as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

In his July 25 call to Zelensky, Trump makes an apparent disparaging reference to Yovanovitch, suggesting that she was ultimately recalled for criticizing the president. During the same call, he urged the Ukrainian president to work with Giuliani and U.S. Attorney General William Barr to assist in the investigation of the Bidens.

The congressman who received the political donations was not named in court documents, but a person familiar with the matter identified the lawmaker as former Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas.

Sessions wrote Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last year, urging the ouster of Yovanovitch, who was recalled in May.

Ukraine: Trump’s conspiracy theories thrive in Ukraine, where a young democracy battles corruption and distrust

Parnas and Fruman, however, made their biggest political splash last year when their company, Global Energy Producers, was credited with giving $325,000 to the committee that supports Trump’s re-election, America First Action SuperPac.

The campaign contribution sparked a complaint to the Federal Election Commission–and at least two lawsuits – because of questions about the source of the money. Citing the contribution Thursday, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, who announced the campaign finance charges, characterized the suspicious donation as one of the largest that the committee had received.

America First acknowledged on Thursday receiving the donation, adding that the committee also was aware of the FEC complaint. 

“Accordingly, America First Action placed that contribution in a segregated bank account, it has not been used for any purpose and the funds will remain in this segregated account until these matters are resolved,” the committee said in a statement.

Arrested, then subpoenaed

As the criminal case was unfolding against Parnas and Fruman Thursday, Congress also was pursuing them as witnesses in the impeachment inquiry.

Both men were scheduled to appear before the House Oversight, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees. Parnas had been scheduled Thursday and Fruman was slated to appear Friday.

Turning up the heat, House Democrats issued subpoenas for the two men just hours after their arrests.

“Your clients are private citizens who are not employees of the Executive Branch,” the chairmen of the House committees wrote to attorneys for Parnas and Fruman. “They may not evade requests from Congress for documents and information necessary to conduct our inquiry.”

The arrests: Giuliani associates, linked to Ukraine controversy, arrested on campaign finance charges

The subpoena demands documents related to Ukraine by Oct. 16. It does not outline an exact date for the men to appear before the panels, saying only that “the committees also expect your clients to appear to testify about these matters at a later date.” 

By Thursday afternoon, however, Parnas and Fruman, whose Wednesday lunch with Giuliani was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, were in no position to tend to Congress’ demands.

During a brief federal court hearing in Alexandria, Virginia, a judge set bail at $1 million for each defendant, demanding that both submit to electronic monitoring before they would be released from custody. The case is expected to move to a federal court in New York, where the charges were first filed Thursday.   

Before the day’s end, however, New York FBI chief William Sweeney and Berman – a Trump appointee – sounded a decidedly ominous note, saying that the investigation had not ended with with the arrests of Parnas and Fruman.

“This investigation is about corrupt behavior and deliberate law breaking,” Sweeney said before both officials abruptly left a New York stage without taking questions.

Marc Thiessen: Trump’s abandonment of the Kurds is a recipe for endless war, not a strategy to end one

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093873083001_6093870668001-vs Marc Thiessen: Trump's abandonment of the Kurds is a recipe for endless war, not a strategy to end one the washington post Marc Thiessen fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/world fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/middle-east fox-news/politics/executive/national-security fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc article 4ed9174e-5736-5788-b6a2-9f87163c3f91

President Trump has defended his shameful abandonment of our Kurdish allies in Syria, declaring that “I was elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars” that have left America “bogged down, watching over a quagmire.” Listening to the president, Americans might think that we still have large numbers of U.S. troops fighting on fronts across the Middle East. We do not.

The days when we deployed hundreds of thousands of troops in the Middle East are long gone. Today, we have 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, about 5,000 in Iraq and just 1,000 in Syria. That is a grand total of about 20,000 troops in all three countries. By contrast, we have about 37,950 U.S. troops in Germany, 12,750 in Italy, 53,900 in Japan, and 28,500 in South Korea — a total of over 133,000. In fact, we now have three times more troops deployed in Spain (3,200) than we do in Syria.

Moreover, the vast majority of these U.S. forces are engaged in a noncombat mission known as “train, advise and assist.” U.S. allies do most of the fighting, while American troops provide intelligence, operational planning, fire support and airstrike coordination from behind the front lines. We have helped train and equip about 174,000 Afghan troops, 64,000 Iraqi troops and 60,000 Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) troops, made up predominantly of Kurdish fighters. They are the ones engaged in ground combat with America’s enemies.

DAVID ADESNIK: TRUMP’S SYRIA DECISION IS A VICTORY FOR AMERICA’S ENEMIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Trump likes to say he “defeated” the Islamic State. Actually, the bulk of the fighting was done by our Kurdish allies, trained and supported by U.S. Special Operations forces. As Gen. Joseph Votel, who served as commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, explains, “Over four years, the SDF freed tens of thousands of square miles and millions of people from the grip of ISIS. Throughout the fight, it sustained nearly 11,000 casualties. By comparison, six U.S. service members, as well as two civilians, have been killed in the anti-ISIS campaign.”

The Kurds bore the burden of the fight and the brunt of the casualties, and they drove the Islamic State from its physical caliphate. But the terrorists are far from defeated. They still have tens of thousands of fighters and vast financial resources. If we take our boot off their necks, they will come roaring back — just like they did in Iraq on President Obama’s watch.

Who is going to stop them? Since Trump has reduced the U.S. military presence in Syria to just 1,000 troops, that means we are depending on the Kurds to keep the Islamic State down. But if we allow Turkey to wipe out our Kurdish allies, who will be left on the ground in Syria to fight the Islamic State? Answer: No one. Is Trump ready to deploy American ground forces to do the job? His abandonment of the Kurds is a recipe for endless war, not a strategy to end one.

We are also depending on the Kurds to guard about 10,000 captured Islamic State fighters held in prisons in Syria — including 2,000 extremely dangerous foreign fighters. If the Kurds have to divert forces to defend against Turkey, they will be less able to guard those prisons, making it more likely that dangerous terrorists escape. If even one of these terrorists carries out an attack in the West, Trump will own it.

It gets worse. Without U.S. support, the Kurds will have no choice but to turn to Russia, Iran and the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad for protection. As a result, Iran will own all of Syria — giving it a strategic anchor in the Middle East and a base from which to attack Israel. Trump has made containing Iran’s expansion a centerpiece of his Middle East policy. Abandoning the Kurds will empower Iran as never before, increase the danger to Israel and require us to deploy more troops to the region to counter Iranian aggression.

The cry that America is fighting “endless wars” is a canard. Our force levels in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are a shadow of their former selves, and U.S. forces are not doing the fighting but rather arming and training allies who are doing the fighting for us. That is the right strategy. But after watching Trump abandon our allies in Syria to be slaughtered, why would anyone step forward to help America in the fight against Islamist radicalism? The president can’t have it both ways. If you don’t want American forces fighting “endless wars,” then you can’t betray your allies.

Jane Fonda plans move to Washington – to get arrested: report

Lock her up?

Jane Fonda, a liberal Hollywood celebrity long known for activism and outspokenness – soon plans to leave Tinseltown and relocate to the nation’s capital, at least temporarily.

And according to the Los Angeles Times, the 81-year-old actress (who’ll turn 82 in December) even has a goal in mind: to get arrested.

SARAH FERGUSON GETSCANDID ON USING BOTOX, LASER FACELIFTS AND STEM CELL THERAPY FOR HER FEET

Fonda told the newspaper she plans to spend about four months in Washington for a series of sit-ins and rallies – after getting an OK from Netflix to take time off from her series “Grace and Frankie” with Lily Tomlin.

She claims to have drawn inspiration from Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate-change activist from Sweden.

“She read the read the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] report and she realized that the crisis was barreling straight at us, like a train,” Fonda said, “and looked around and people weren’t behaving appropriately.

“It so traumatized her that she stopped eating. I hadn’t realized that she stopped eating and speaking for almost a year. And that really hit me.”

Fonda, forever known as “Hanoi Jane” to those who took offense to her stand against the Vietnam War, criticized Democrats for failing to advance the left’s climate agenda.

When [former California Gov. Jerry Brown] came in, in the ’70s, it was great,” she told the L.A. Times. “Suddenly, you could afford solar panels and all these kinds of windmills. … But … right to the day he left, he didn’t pay too much attention to the fact that oil companies are drilling all over California next to communities and next to schools and everything.”

But despite her lefty credentials, Fonda told Politico in 2018 that while she opposes President Trump’s policies, she doesn’t hate him as a person.

“I feel that I understand a little bit — this is a man who was traumatized as a child by his father, who had a mother that didn’t protect him,” she told the outlet. “And the behavior is the language of the wounded.”

In August, Fonda’s younger brother, actor Peter Fonda, died at age 79 after suffering respiratory failure due to lung cancer.

“I am very sad. He was my sweet-hearted baby brother. The talker of the family,” she told Variety at the time.

Fonda told the newspaper she plans to spend about four months in Washington for a series of sit-ins and rallies – after getting an OK from Netflix to take time off from her series “Grace and Frankie” with Lily Tomlin.

She claims to have drawn inspiration from Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate-change activist from Sweden.

“She read the read the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] report and she realized that the crisis was barreling straight at us, like a train,” Fonda said, “and looked around and people weren’t behaving appropriately.

Cuomo Bombs With Gender Pronoun Joke At LGBTQ Town Hall, Immediately Apologizes

Westlake Legal Group 5da04e0a210000c3073442be Cuomo Bombs With Gender Pronoun Joke At LGBTQ Town Hall, Immediately Apologizes

CNN’s Chris Cuomo quickly apologized on Twitter after he made an inappropriate joke about preferred gender pronouns during the network’s televised LGBTQ town hall for Democratic 2020 candidates on Thursday night.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) walked onto the stage and immediately declared her pronouns as “she, her and hers.”

“She, her and hers? Mine too,” Cuomo responded, eliciting what appeared to be some groans from the studio audience.

“Alright,” Harris replied after a moment’s silence.

Check out the exchange here:

Cuomo tweeted an apology soon after, saying he “should not have” responded in the way he did. “I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality,” he wrote.

The backlash was swift on Twitter, however, where LGBTQ advocacy groups called out the prime time anchor. GLAAD tweeted “it was so disappointing” for Cuomo to mock Harris’ declaration “on such a major stage.”

The National Center for Lesbian Rights, meanwhile, tweeted that “people’s pronouns are not a punchline.”

“In a year where LGBTQ Americans are finally being recognized on the national Presidential stage, making jokes about gender pronouns is beneath your dignity. Please do better in the future,” the organization added.

Others called Cuomo’s comment “UNACCEPTABLE,” “not okay” and “super gross.”
