Booker defends his flagging campaign, refuses PAC funds

2020 Democratic presidential primary hopeful Cory Booker defended his flagging campaign on Sunday and pleaded with voters to support his White House run after he swore off taking money from political action committees.

“We need to unite and the next president has to be a healer and get us back to one nation under God,” Booker said during an appearance on CBS’ “Face The Nation. “Partisanship has divided us and made tribalism. We need a leader to inspire.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Booker is sitting in the middle of the crowded Democratic field with a campaign that is struggling to bring funds after swearing off donations from PACs.

Earlier in the week, a super PAC formed to support Booker’s Democratic presidential campaign announced it was shutting down.

The group’s founder, San Francisco lawyer Steve Phillips, indicated in a news release Wednesday that Dream United had struggled to raise money. Booker, a New Jersey senator, has publicly disavowed support from super PACs, which aren’t required to disclose their donors.

Phillips, a former college classmate of Booker’s, said that it became clear while trying to fundraise for Dream United “that the donor community is strictly adhering to Senator Booker’s publicly articulated wishes that he does not welcome independent support.” The group raised a little over $1.1 million during the first six months of the year, far short of Phillips’ stated $10 million goal.

Booker’s campaign has been floundering in the polls, with the Real Clear Politics average of national polls showing the New Jersey senator pulling in less than 2 percent of the vote, compared to the frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, who has 27 percent. Booker’s fellow senators, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, are also faring much better – averaging around 18 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

Booker released a new digital ad on Sunday meant to sway voters in the early caucus state of Iowa, where he is polling at just under 2 percent. South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg holds a surprising lead in Iowa with 24 percent.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Indiana woman, 19, killed after backseat passenger fires AR-15-style rifle in car, police say

An Indiana woman was shot and killed last week while driving her car, allegedly by a passenger who police say fired an AR-15-style rifle while he was sitting behind her in her vehicle.

Annalysa McMillan, 19, was driving three people — including Austin Mark Smith, 22 — around Marion on Tuesday when she died, investigators said.

CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION OFFICER ACCUSED OF KILLING WIFE ON THANKSGIVING

Just before 6 p.m., authorities responded to the scene when they discovered McMillian unresponsive in her car, the Marion Police Department said in a news release. Officials tried resuscitating her until she was transported to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

McMillan was shot once with a bullet from an AR-15-style rifle, police said. Smith, who was sitting in the backseat on the driver’s side of the car behind her, “was in possession” of the weapon when it discharged.

“The projectile entered and exited the driver’s seat and struck Annalysa in her back,” investigators wrote. Her cause of death was due to a gunshot wound to the back and was ruled a homicide.

The other two passengers McMillan was driving, ages 18 and 19, were not injured in the incident.

Mark Atkinson, lead pastor of Eastview Wesleyan Church in Gas City, where McMillan was from, told WXIN McMillan had just celebrated her birthday five days prior to her death. He said the woman’s last text message “to her stepfather was that she loved him and, those things are glued to hold tight when everything is trying to blow you apart.”

The pastor described McMillan as “an encouraging, bubbly young lady who had a bright future and was heading in the right direction.”

Smith was charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and reckless homicide, according to the police department. As of Sunday, he was being held in the Grant County Jail.

Harry Kazianis: North Korea-US nuclear showdown coming – unless Kim takes these steps

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6109992550001_6109997971001-vs Harry Kazianis: North Korea-US nuclear showdown coming – unless Kim takes these steps Harry J. Kazianis fox-news/world/conflicts/north-korea fox-news/person/kim-jong-un fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/us-north-korea-summit fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 5e180994-a78d-55ee-8ef0-7745b4c7a5e4

While Democrats in Congress remain focused on their drive to impeach President Trump, challenges facing the U.S. around the world are getting a lot less attention then they deserve. One major challenge looming in the next few weeks comes from nuclear-armed North Korea, which test-fired two short-range missiles on Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately, it looks like another nuclear showdown with North Korea is just over the horizon. A lot of you reading this will find this puzzling, because many people thought the three summits President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un held in the past two years had ratcheted down the tension between our two nations.

And what about the personal relationship forged between Trump and Kim? Hasn’t that put the relationship between the U.S. and North Korea – while certainly not one of friendship – at least on a stable footing?

GEN. ANTHONY TATA: TRUMP WAS RIGHT, FIRED NAVY SECRETARY WAS WRONG ON EDDIE GALLAGHER CASE

Not for long, at least if Kim has his way. North Korea seems set to apply its own style of maximum pressure on the U.S. to match the maximum pressure of economic sanctions America and most of the rest of the world have imposed on the North.

The sanctions imposed by Trump and previous presidents – as well as the United Nations and other individual countries – are designed to get the North to abandon its nuclear weapons and long-range missile programs. Kim has made gestures but has never agreed to full and verifiable denuclearization.   

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

The North Korean leader has repeatedly declared a year-end deadline for some sort of big progress on now-stalled negotiations with the U.S. And the end of the year is approaching fast.

North Korea’s demands have shifted several times over the last few months. For now, what Kim is demanding is clear: before his regime sits down for any new talks with the Trump administration on possible North Korean denuclearization, Kim wants America to end its so-called “hostile policy.”

More from Opinion

Ending the “hostile policy” means U.S. support for the cancellation of most – if not all – of the crippling international economic sanctions on North Korea. In addition, Kim wants some form of a security guarantee against any attack by the U.S., South Korea or other nations against the North.

Kim has also been clear about what happens if Trump does not meet his demands. Going back to his New Year’s Day annual speech this year, Kim declared that if America “attempts to unilaterally enforce something upon us [full nuclear disarmament before any sanctions relief] and persists in imposing sanctions and pressure against our Republic, we may be compelled to find a new way for defending the sovereignty of the country.”

That so-called “new way” can mean only two things: a long-range missile test proving definitively that North Korea can hit the U.S. with a nuclear weapon, or a new test of a nuclear bomb to remind the world of the horrific destruction North Korea has the power to unleash on other nations – including the U.S.

This sounds aggressive and frightening, potentially leading Washington and Pyongyang back to the dark days of nuclear threats and conflict. However, I would argue that Kim never intended for such an outcome when he delivered his New Year’s address 11 months ago.

Instead, Kim likely gambled that a little pressure would help push the Trump administration to agree to a deal that was more on his terms. And in fact, earlier in the year, there was reason to be hopeful that a potentially historic compromise could be struck.

With Trump needing to ensure he wins a vote in the Senate during his likely impeachment trial, he doesn’t want to lose any Republican votes over a foreign policy issue such as North Korea. 

But Kim forgot about one thing: the blood sport that is now U.S. domestic politics has limited President Trump’s ability to agree to any sort of compromise.

At the Hanoi summit in February, Trump could not agree to a compromise deal as Democrats tried to torpedo the talks by having Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testify at the same time.

And now, with Trump needing to ensure he wins a vote in the Senate during his likely impeachment trial, he doesn’t want to lose any Republican votes over a foreign policy issue such as North Korea.

Some senators in both parties remain upset about Trump’s sudden withdrawal of U.S. troops from northern Syria who were protecting Kurds from Turkish forces, which entered Syria after the U.S. troop withdrawal. If Trump angers senators again by making too many concessions to North Korea, some Republicans whose support he needs in an impeachment trial might turn against him.

But how serious are Kim’s threats? Will he pull the missile or nuclear trigger? We know he must do something in early January, as he has publicly declared his intention to shift to a more aggressive posture.

The good news is that Kim has a way out of the crisis he unintentionally set into motion. He does not have to test a long-range missile or nuclear weapon, the two things that drove tensions to such a dangerous place in 2017. Kim has made a personal pledge to Trump to refrain from such actions.

Kim could test a medium-range missile or even conduct a satellite launch, something that would allow him to show his resolve and not lose face to his own people. He could then declare his openness to new talks – even another summit – if Trump would be open to a compromise.

Here is where impeachment could for once help the Trump administration. Let’s assume Trump is impeached by the Democratic-controlled House and acquitted in a trial in the Republican-controlled Senate, which now seems a near certainty.

Clearly the president and his advisers will want to change the political landscape in Washington with one last big achievement before the 2020 election. What if Trump then pivoted to foreign affairs, focusing on a nuclear deal with North Korea?

Trump, free from the political straitjacket of impeachment, would have the ability to make key compromises – like trading some sanctions relief for the closure of one or more important North Korean nuclear sites as well as some sort of security guarantee for Pyongyang.

But all of this can’t happen if Kim decides to test an intercontinental ballistic missile or nuclear bomb. President Trump would be forced to respond to such a provocative action – and that can only mean we will be back to the days of what Trump once called “fire and fury.”

Trump would surely be forced to restart aggressive U.S.-South Korean military drills, redeploy nuclear-capable assets near the Korean Peninsula, and call for increased sanctions.

The good news is that none of this needs to happen if Pyongyang takes a softer approach and is truly serious about forging a new relationship with Washington.

What will Kim Jong Un choose to do? We’ll have to wait and see.

Sen. Kennedy claims former Ukraine leader ‘actively’ worked with Hillary Clinton in 2016

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6109191001001_6109191919001-vs Sen. Kennedy claims former Ukraine leader 'actively' worked with Hillary Clinton in 2016 fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox news fnc/politics fnc f3eee523-bd01-55af-984a-0392ca00360a article Andrew O'Reilly

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., on Sunday walked back an erroneous comment he made last weekend touting the debunked theory that Ukraine hacked the Democratic National Committee’s emails in 2016, but then quickly followed that up with another unproven theory accusing former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko of actively working for Hillary Clinton in her 2016 presidential run.

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Kennedy admitted he was wrong when he told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” last week that Ukraine could have been responsible for meddling in the 2016 presidential elections.

MARK LEVIN BLASTS MEDIA’S UKRAINE NARRATIVE, CLAIMS TRANSCRIPT DESTROYS BIDEN ‘FAVOR’ ARGUMENT

“I walked it back because I was wrong,” Kennedy said, adding that he thought Wallace asked if Ukraine had meddled in the U.S. elections, not about discredited theories of Ukrainian hacking. “I went back and looked at the transcript and realized Chris was right and I was wrong.”

Kennedy, however, went on to make another unfounded accusation when he accused Poroshenko of “actively” working with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her White House bid in 2016.

“Russia was very aggressive and they’re much more sophisticated,” he said. “But the fact that Russia was so aggressive does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko actively worked for Secretary Clinton.”

A flabbergasted NBC anchor Chuck Todd countered that the only other person pushing this narrative of Ukrainians working to get Clinton elected is Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“You’ve done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do,” Todd said. “Are you at all concerned that you’ve been duped?”

Kennedy countered naming a number of news publications who have reported on the theory, including the Financial Times, the Washington Examiner and Politico. A 2017 Politico article has been widely referenced in supporting claims of a pro-Clinton bias from Poroshenko and the government in Kiev at the time.

“You should read the articles,” Kennedy said. “They’re very well documented.”

Politico’s reporting since the 2017 article has stated that “no evidence has emerged” to support the claims that Ukrainian officials were working with the Clinton camp. In a statement to the Washington Examiner, the news website added that the previous reporting indicated that Ukraine worked with intermediaries at the DNC to spread dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump.

Collins: Schiff will be GOP’s ‘first and foremost witness’ for impeachment hearing

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6110909414001_6110906617001-vs Collins: Schiff will be GOP's 'first and foremost witness' for impeachment hearing Ronn Blitzer fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc e2796986-2274-58de-a101-1b732d38b936 article

House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., is gearing up for his committee’s role in the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, and the first witness he plans on calling is the man who led the first phase in the process, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

Schiff is in the middle of preparing a report on his committee’s findings after conducting closed-door interviews and public hearings featuring a number of current and former Trump administration officials connected to the administration’s policies and relationship with Ukraine. Republicans have questioned Schiff’s credibility due to contact that an anonymous whistleblower had with his staff before filing a complaint which led to the impeachment inquiry, and now they want to question him before the Judiciary Committee.

HOUSE INTEL COMMITTEE TO REVIEW DRAFT UKRAINE REPORT THIS WEEK

“My first and foremost witness is Adam Schiff,” Collins told “Fox News Sunday.” He claimed that if Schiff does not make himself available for questioning, it will reflect poorly on his credibility and the work he has done so far.

“If he chooses not to, then I really question his veracity and what he’s putting in his report. I question the motive of why he’s doing it,” Collins said. Collins specifically said he wants Schiff to discuss what he and his staff knew about the whistleblower’s complaint, and Schiff’s own interactions with Ukraine.

He also claimed that Schiff has withheld documents relevant to the inquiry.

“If they think they have such a case, give us all the materials,” he said.

Collins also called out Democrats for the time crunch they have imposed on Republicans and the White House, along with a lack of information regarding the next stage in the impeachment process, which will begin with House Judiciary Committee hearing featuring constitutional scholars on December 4. Collins claimed that the committee’s chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., did not give Trump or Republicans enough time to determine how to move forward.

“Chairman Nadler sent a letter asking us by Friday to present this list and present all the things that we would like to do. However, we’re not going to see the Schiff report, as it is going to be known, out of committee until Tuesday night, possibly Wednesday morning before we get to see it.”

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES DECEMBER IMPEACHMENT HEARING, INVITES TRUMP TO PARTICIPATE

In a letter to the president sent Friday, Nadler gave Trump until December 6 to decide whether to have counsel present at hearings and to state which privileges he will invoke. Collins claimed that this does not give Trump time to prepare, as Schiff’s report will not be released until soon beforehand.

“As an attorney, if you have a case going forward you want to know exactly what you’re facing,” Collins said.

The Republican also addressed what he believes to be an unfair process when it comes to Wednesday’s hearing featuring constitutional law experts who will be weighing in on possible impeachment. Three of the witnesses will be called by the Democratic majority, with one called by the GOP.

“Why don’t we at least have more witnesses?” Collins asked. Last week he sent Nadler a letter calling for additional witnesses besides the four academics, citing precedent for a “robust slate” of witnesses.

“For example, during the impeachment inquiry of President William J. Clinton, the Committee assembled two panels of ten and nine academics, respectively, to help the Committee grapple with impeachment,” the letter said. Collins did not specify who should be added to the list, but suggested that both parties be able to choose.

Govs. Sununu & Kelly: School safety requires THIS from parents, teachers and public officials

Westlake Legal Group Class Govs. Sununu & Kelly: School safety requires THIS from parents, teachers and public officials Laura Kelly fox-news/topic/back-to-school fox-news/opinion fox-news/health/education fox news fnc/opinion fnc Chris Sununu article a29b2f59-209e-5f6e-95df-232137115e77

As students streamed back into classrooms this fall, parents, educators, administrators and community leaders took steps to ensure that the new academic year would be a safe one, from enhancing campus safety features to incorporating interventions that address the overall health of all students. As governors, we too have prioritized the safety of schoolchildren in our states. It’s a vitally important mission – one that demands constant vigilance and new ways of thinking.

For too long, school policies presumed that providing for the safety and well-being of our kids begins and ends with the physical security of school grounds. But education in the 21st century necessitates that elected officials act to guarantee the holistic safety of every child, from physical to emotional.

We must recognize that each day our children are balancing the demands of their academic workloads with their social and emotional maturation, while many face additional challenges at home and in their communities. At the same time, the rise of social media allows for bullying to continue outside of the school walls, away from educators’ watchful eyes. And we must recognize that society has stigmatized support services.

PAUL BATURA: CHANGE THE COURSE OF YOUR CHILD’S LIFE BY DOING THIS

We can and must do better, which is why in New Hampshire we have adopted the Multi-Tiered System of Support for Behavioral Health. The system establishes a statewide social and emotional learning curriculum – the first of its kind in the nation – available to every educator across the state free of charge.

The social and emotional learning curriculum teaches students how to balance their emotions and navigate stressful situations. Our state also has passed meaningful legislation to provide educators with training and tools that work to prevent not only violence but also addiction, suicide and toxic stress that is too common among our children.

In Kansas, we’re emphasizing the importance of community partnerships when it comes to promoting the health and safety of students of all ages. Last year, our state passed legislation allocating funds to allow school districts to participate in a Mental Health Intervention Team Pilot Program. The program creates partnerships between districts and community mental health centers to increase students’ access to counselors, social workers and psychologists. Through a unique model of a school liaison, community mental health center clinical staff are embedded in schools to provide initial assessments, treatment and case management year-round.

More from Opinion

The Kansas State Board of Education also operates an online resource center, which provides schools with free informational resources on bullying prevention, crisis planning and mental health and positive behavior support.

These innovations will go a long way to promote a positive school climate and a sense of belonging for students and their families. Our work is not yet done, though.

State and local officials must work together to understand unique local needs and foster community buy-in, so as to engage each and every possible stakeholder.  

As members of the National Governors Association, we continue to engage in bipartisan dialogue and facilitate national discussions on the opportunities to promote child wellness and school safety. Progress necessitates that we engage in frank conversations that go beyond the immediate response to harden schools and address the harder work of supporting student social development, mental health and resiliency. We have to acknowledge the gaps and adapt our policies as needed.

Our individual efforts, while meaningfully providing for the safety of our kids, must not exist independently of one another – which is why we will continue to work with our fellow governors to better align our efforts in education, behavioral health and public safety. State and local officials must work together to understand unique local needs and foster community buy-in, so as to engage each and every possible stakeholder.

We need the continued support and participation of students, parents, teachers, coaches and other community leaders to ensure that the policies we develop work to meaningfully better the lives of students.

It is through sustained and diverse partnerships – from school lunchrooms to the halls of each and every statehouse – that we will provide our students with the confidence that their safety, health and well-being are the primary concerns of our communities.

Billy Dee Williams, the actor best known for his role as Lando Calrissian in the 1980s “Star Wars” films, revealed he identifies as gender fluid during a recent interview with Esquire magazine.

Williams, 82, described his legacy as a “colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.”

“I never tried to be anything except myself,” Williams told Esquire in an interview that published Tuesday. 

“And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,” he added. “I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

Williams reprised his iconic role as the smuggler turned Cloud City administrator in the upcoming installment of the space fantasy series, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” which is slated to hit theaters on Dec. 20.

In his interview with Williams, Esquire’s Matt Miller pointed out how Donald Glover, the actor who played a young Calrissian in last year’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” described the character as pansexual. Pansexuality typically refers to an attraction to people that is not limited by a particular gender identity or sexual orientation.

“Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody,” Glover said of Calrissian during an interview last year with SiriusXM after “Solo” writers confirmed the character’s pansexuality.

He continued: “I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s like, no, only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have good time out here.”

Williams was reportedly thrilled to hear about Glover’s remarks.

“Really? That kid is brilliant,” he told Esquire.

J.J. Abrams, who directed “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” praised Williams’ performance in an email to the magazine.

“Lando was always written as a complex, contradictory, nuanced character,” he wrote. “And Billy Dee played him to suave perfection.”

Virginia man arrested on Black Friday after being found naked in Kohl’s parking lot, police say

A Virginia man was arrested Friday after police say he was found sitting naked in a car in a North Carolina Kohl’s parking lot on America’s busiest shopping day of the year.

Tylik Shawdu Little, 28, was spotted after a patrolling officer smelled marijuana coming from a row of vehicles, the Knightdale Police Department said in a news release.

The officer ordered Little to put clothes on and exit the vehicle, but he instead tried to escape by driving behind and between nearby buildings, according to authorities. He was stopped a short distance away and taken into custody, wearing pants and a shirt.

“This sort of public behavior on the busiest shopping day of the year is particularly appalling,” said Police Chief Lawrence Capps. “We are glad no citizens were adversely impacted and pleased that our emphasis on proactive patrols paid off in this instance.”

Despite the area being packed with Black Friday shoppers, authorities said they believed that only the officer saw Little’s lewd behavior. No passersby or store patrons had reported Little, whose motives weren’t immediately known, police said.
