Philadelphia mayor raises eyebrows with Trump comment

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, echoing President Trump’s weekend tweets aimed at four Democratic congresswomen, said Tuesday that the president would “have to go to hell” if he ever went back where he came from.

Kenney made the comment while speaking at an event to help illegal immigrants facing deportation, according to KYW-TV.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney did not mince words Tuesday when speaking about President Trump.  (phila.gov)

Kenney reportedly veered off script, saying he had a vision that one day Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan will be standing “outside of heaven” in a “cyclone-fenced dungeon” for eternity because “what they’re doing now is so anti-human, antithetical, anti-American, anti-decent, it’s all terrible what they’re doing.”

He went on: “The step the president took yesterday when he told four American citizens to go back where they came from makes him an idiot because he didn’t know they were born in Detroit and Chicago and New York, so that’s the problem. If Donald Trump ever has to go back where he came from, he’s going to have to go to hell.”

DEM-LED HOUSE FORMALLY CONDEMNS TRUMP REMARKS DEEMED ‘RACIST,’ AFTER DRAMATIC FLOOR FIGHT OVER PELOSI

Trump ignited a firestorm over the weekend by telling progressive freshman congresswoman on Twitter to “go back” to their countries of origin to fix the corruption plaguing those nations before they lecture the United States.

Though not naming the congresswomen by name, the tweets were widely interpreted as directed towards Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. Only Omar was born outside the U.S., having arrived as a refugee from Somalia.

After Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House last year following their Super Bowl win, Kenney called the president a “tyrant” who “is trying to turn this country into a dictatorship.”

‘The Squad’ revives feud with Pelosi: Be aware when you ‘single us out’ that we’re ‘women of color’

Westlake Legal Group ocasio-pelosi-tlaib-AP 'The Squad' revives feud with Pelosi: Be aware when you 'single us out' that we're 'women of color' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc e183e74b-5adf-5a3f-8112-63349f8139c2 article

The four progressive congresswomen who are currently in a nasty feud with President Trump offered a not-so-subtle warning to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, the next time she “singles them out.”

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, often referred to as “The Squad,” sat down with “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King on Tuesday as the House voted to formally condemn Trump over tweets that Democrats labeled as racist.

King asked the congresswomen if they’ve been in contact with Pelosi.

“Our teams are in communication,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“But shouldn’t you be meeting face-to-face?” King asked.

“She’s the new member, not the speaker,” Tlaib interjected. “She has every right to sit down with her at any moment, any time with any of us. She is Speaker of the House. She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification.”

DEM ‘SQUAD’ BLAST TRUMP, CALL HIM THE ‘BIGGEST BULLY’ THEY’VE ENCOUNTERED

Tlaib continued, “Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth.”

King followed up with Ocasio-Cortez, asking if she was “interested in having a conversation” with Pelosi, which Ocasio-Cortez responded, “Absolutely.”

Last week, the four congresswomen had an ongoing public spat with Pelosi, which got very heated after Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the speaker was “singling out” them because they were “women of color.” Pelosi previously dismissed their vocal opposition to the House’s approval for border funding.

Their feud, however, seemed to have evaporated on Sunday after Trump targeted them on Twitter, suggesting they should “go back” to the countries they came from despite how three of the four congresswomen were born in the U.S. and all four of them are U.S. citizens.

Trump’s tweets were formally condemned by the House, resulting in a 240-187 vote. Four Republican lawmakers joined the Democrats, including Reps Will Hurd, R-Texas, Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn., Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Susan Brooks, R-Ind., as well as Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich.

Florida man attacks wife's lover with scissors and flees with his penis, police say

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Florida man attacks wife's lover with scissors and flees with his penis, police say

A Florida man allegedly used scissors to cut off the penis of a man he suspected of sleeping with his wife, according to law enforcement officials.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office arrested Alex Bonilla, 49, on Sunday. He is accused of breaking into the victim’s house, holding him at gunpoint and tying him up before mutilating him. 

The unnamed victim was transported to a hospital Sunday and is in stable condition, the Sheriff’s Office said. He told deputies Bonilla fled the scene with his severed penis, according to the report.

Bonilla was arrested a couple hours after. No additional evidence was found in a county-wide search, the Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities did not specify whether the victim’s penis was recovered.

Authorities are still working to determine a motive, according to a press release Tuesday. However, Bonilla told deputies he caught the victim sleeping with his wife in May, according to the police report obtained by local media outlets

Latina Border Patrol officer dubbed ‘Ice Bae’ is a Democrat

Westlake Legal Group ice-bae-thumb Latina Border Patrol officer dubbed ‘Ice Bae’ is a Democrat New York Post Jackie Salo fox-news/entertainment/genres/viral fnc/entertainment fnc article 4faf80c0-5561-5068-830c-3e5f282df96d

A Latina Border Patrol officer who went viral as #IceBae after being photographed on duty is a registered Democrat from Texas, records show.

Kiara Cervantes, 26, identified herself Sunday on Twitter as the internet sensation who was snapped during Vice President Mike Pence’s recent visit to a border detention center.

SO-CALLED ‘ICE BAE,’ A LATINA BORDER PATROL OFFICER, IS TAKING SOCIAL MEDIA BY STORM

The female officer — who registered as a Democrat in 2011 — later took to social media to say that it was an “honor” to provide security for the veep.

“It was an honor and I take a lot of pride in my job!” she tweeted on Sunday.

Voter registration records showed Cervantes, who is from Laredo, didn’t vote in the 2016 presidential election. She last exercised her right to vote in March 2014.

Cervantes fired back Sunday at one social media user who tweeted that her family will disown her and “shame on any Hispanic working for ice of anything of that nature.”

“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” she tweeted. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”

Cervantes didn’t respond immediately to a request Tuesday for comment. She previously told The Post that she couldn’t elaborate on her newfound social media fame until she “speaks to management with CBP.”

Westlake Legal Group  Opinion: Report On Racism, But Ditch The Labels

U.S. President Donald Trump listens during a meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

Editor’s note: NPR this week has described the language in President Trump’s tweets about a group of Democratic congresswomen as “racist.”

Keith Woods, NPR’s vice president for newsroom training and diversity, argues that journalists should not be using the term “racist” to describe the president’s tweets. He explains why below.

Once again, the president of the United States has used the sniper tower of Twitter to take aim at immigration, race relations and common decency. And once again, journalists are daring their profession to boldly call bigotry what it is: bigotry. Enough of the vacuous “racially charged,” “racially loaded,” “racially insensitive” evasions, they say. It’s racist, and we should just call it that.

I understand the moral outrage behind wanting to slap this particular label on this particular president and his many incendiary utterances, but I disagree. Journalism may not have come honorably to the conclusion that dispassionate distance is a virtue. But that’s the fragile line that separates the profession from the rancid, institution-debasing cesspool that is today’s politics.

It is precisely because journalism is given to warm-spit phrases like “racially insensitive” and “racially charged” that we should not be in the business of moral labeling in the first place. Who decides where the line is that the president crossed? The headline writer working today who thinks it’s “insensitive” or the one tomorrow who thinks it’s “racist?” Were we to use my moral standards, the line for calling people and words racist in this country would have been crossed decades ago. But that’s not what journalists do. We report and interview and attribute.

I am not a journalism purist. I came into the profession 40 years ago to tear down the spurious notion of objectivity used to protects a legacy of sexism, xenophobia and white supremacy. The better ideals of truth telling, accountability, fairness, etc., are what give journalism its power, while the notion of “objectivity” has been used to obscure and excuse the insidious biases we do battle with today.

I’ve been an informed consumer of the media since my days as a paperboy. I read the Times-Picayune as I delivered it, and the distorted view it offered of black and poor New Orleans told me all I needed to know about “objectivity.” We have come miles since then as a profession. But why should I trust that we’re all on the same page with our labels now? Weren’t last week’s tweets racist? Or last year’s? Weren’t some misogynistic? Vulgar? Homophobic? Sexist? The language of my judgment is generous, and they are my opinion, and they belong in the space reserved for opinions.

What’s at stake is journalism’s embattled claim to be the source of credible news grounded in the kind of deep, fair reporting that exposes injustice and holds powerful people to account. It may be satisfying to call the president’s words, or the president himself, racist, given the attacks tweeted from his bully app and so often aimed at our profession. But at what cost?

It’s already nearly impossible to separate actual journalism from the argumentative noise on the cable networks that dominate so much of public perception. There are already too many journalists dancing day and night on the line that once separated fact and judgment. When that line is finally obliterated and we sink into the cesspool beckoning us to its depths, this historically flawed, imperfect tool for revealing and routing racism will look and sound indistinguishable from the noise and become just as irrelevant.

On Sunday, the president wrote this:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

His words mirror those of avowed racists and xenophobes that date back to the birth of this country. Was that moral judgement, my last sentence? I would argue no. I’d call it context, and it doesn’t require my opinion, just a basic understanding of history. That’s an alternative to labels: Report. Quote people. Cite sources. Add context. Leave the moral labeling to the people affected; to the opinion writers, the editorial writers, the preachers and philosophers and to the public we serve.

We just have to do journalism.

Lt. John Formisano is charged in the fatal shooting of his wife last Sunday and wounding another man who was at the residence, NJ Advance Media reported.

On June 7, Formisano filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.

NEW JERSEY POLICE OFFICER FATALLY SHOOTS EX-WIFE, WOUNDS BOYFRIEND, PROSECUTORS SAY

Formisano “went in the front door,” Thomas Verrone, a retired sheriff’s officer and a neighbor told the paper. “He shot the boyfriend three times and he shot the wife two times. She ran out of that house, went to next-door neighbor banging on the door, yelling she had been shot. But it was late at night so no one answered.”

He said Formisano followed her to a neighbor’s house and shot her several more times. “She fell there,” he said.

Formisano allegedly said he went to the house to drop off something when he suspected there was another man in the home. He allegedly told detectives he “blacked out” before he shot the victims.

Cornel West says AOC, progressive ‘squad,’ views world ‘through the lens of the poor’ and working class

Westlake Legal Group West-Ingraham_FOX Cornel West says AOC, progressive 'squad,' views world 'through the lens of the poor' and working class fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc e6b23afb-8e3a-58f1-8163-447282d543da Charles Creitz article

Harvard University philosophy Professor Cornel West said he supports the four freshman lawmakers that compose the so-called progressive “squad” for reasons other than ideology.

West said Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle” he doesn’t agree with everything they say, but feels a moral and political connection.

“I stand in very deep moral and political solidarity with my four sisters — not because I agree with every word — but because they’re looking at the world through the lens of the poor,” he said.

“They’re looking at the world through the lens of working people.”

He added his support also has little to do with whether or not President Trump is a “racist.”

“What we actually have with the president is not so much a question of whether he’s a racist or not… the issue is, is he focusing on the most vulnerable and the most vincible?” West asked.

“This is not about partisanship. This is not about an ‘-ism’.”

West added he would also have stood with Trump’s late mother, Mary Anne, if someone in America told her to “go back to” her home country of Scotland.

Earlier Tuesday, one of the progressive lawmakers discussed by West, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., turned her attention to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., amid her ongoing feud with Trump over his recent comments.

In the broadside, the freshman Democrat said McConnell is “complicit in advancing racism” in the wake of the president’s remarks about four Democratic congresswomen — including Ocasio-Cortez — needing to “go back” where they came from. Three of the four women were born in America.

“The majority leader is complicit in advancing racism in America if he doesn’t even have the backbone to speak out,” Ocasio-Cortez told ABC on Tuesday.

Her comments followed days of controversy surrounding Trump’s tweets, provoking responses from politicians in both chambers of Congress. McConnell, on Tuesday, called on “everybody” to “tone down their rhetoric.”

Hannity says Biden ‘sucking up’ to AOC and the party’s radicals

Fox News’ Sean Hannity mocked Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden Tuesday for “sucking up” too Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently even though the congresswoman hasn’t spoken well of the former vice president in the past.

“[Biden] is now pandering to every corner of this new extreme socialist Democratic party.  Going so far as to describe congresswoman, the real Speaker of the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as both smart as hell and brilliant,” Hannity said on his television show.

“She’s been taking a lot of shots at him, he’s sucking up.”

BIDEN PROPOSES BIG CHANGE TO OBAMACARE TO SAVE IT FROM GOP AND FROM ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL’ CROWD

“This idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward,” Ocasio-Cortez said of Biden in April while appearing on a podcast.

The Fox News host said Biden’s effort to curry favor with the freshman congresswoman and the progressive wing of the party won’t work.

“But here’s the thing, Biden can try and suck up, cozy up to the new extreme left all he wants. They’re never going to accept him. And never going to endorse him in the Democratic primary,” Hannity said.

Hannity predicted things would get worse for Biden.

“Here’s a prediction Uncle Joe, this is only going to get worse. Remember the questions are only going to get tougher the scrutiny on Biden will only intensify. The question is just how far left is sleepy, creepy, crazy Uncle Joe willing to go to try and appease these out of touch out of control leaders of his party,” Hannity said.

Westlake Legal Group 5d2e8a752400009d17935b88 Colbert Gives Trump A Reminder Of His Own Ugly Past: ‘Racism Is Your Brand!’

Colbert delivered a quick summary of Trump’s past, from his never-retracted calls to execute the Central Park Five, who were ultimately exonerated, to his “birther” attacks on former President Barack Obama and more. 

“Racism is your brand!” Colbert said. “It’s like Col. Sanders saying, ‘I don’t have a finger-lickin’ bone in my body.” 

Trump this weekend fired off a series of racist tweets against several women of color serving in Congress, telling them to “go back” to their own countries, even though they are U.S. citizens, then doubled down on those attacks.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s praise of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. and her so-called progressive “squad” shows how far left the Democratic Party has moved, according to Lara Trump.

The Democratic Party is no longer of the same ideology of the more moderate ex-Delaware senator, Trump claimed Tuesday on “Hannity.”

“If you had any questions about who the Democrats were, here’s your answer,” she said.

“Joe Biden has realized he has got to move so far to the left to fit in with this new party. So, people going to the polls in 2020 should remember this.”

DEM-LED HOUSE FORMALLY CONDEMNS TRUMP REMARKS DEEMED ‘RACIST,’ AFTER DRAMATIC FLOOR FIGHT OVER PELOSI

In an interview with MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, Biden complimented Ocasio-Cortez.

“AOC is brilliant, and the other three women we’re talking about are really smart, but they are the exception rather than the rule,” the Scranton, Pa. native claimed.

“I think the freshmen — particularly AOC — is smart as hell, really bright, and really a value-added to the party.”

Speaking with host Sean Hannity, Trump claimed America would be drastically changed if her father-in-law loses in 2020.

“Think, if any of these people get control of the White House, it would be a very different looking country,” she said.

Of the Democrats, Hannity added House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is “speaker in name only,” in reference to Ocasio-Cortez’s high profile.

Earlier Tuesday, the Bronx Democrat turned her attention to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., amid her ongoing feud with President Trump over his recent controversial comments.

In the broadside, she said McConnell is “complicit in advancing racism” in the wake of the president’s remarks about four Democratic congresswomen — including Ocasio-Cortez — needing to “go back” where they came from. Three of the four women were born in America.
