Rush Limbaugh ponders a Trump debate against Pete Buttigieg: ‘What’s gonna happen there?’

Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday suggested former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg wouldn’t look masculine standing next to “Mr. Man” President Trump on a presidential debate stage because he is an openly gay married man.

Democrats are “sitting there, and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, a 37-year-old gay guy … loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage,” Limbaugh told his radio show listeners while discussing what he perceives as a weak Democratic field. “And they’re saying, ‘OK, how’s this gonna look, a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s gonna happen there?'”

RUSH LIMBAUGH SAYS PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM ‘IS JUST BEAUTIFUL,’ CALLS AWARD ‘SO SPECIAL’

Limbaugh said Democrats must be thinking, “despite all the great progress and despite all the great ‘wokeness,’ and despite all the great ground that’s been covered,” Americans likely still aren’t ready to elect an openly gay man.

He suggested some liberals may see Buttigieg’s sexuality as an asset.

“What’s gonna happen there?” Rush Limbaugh, right, asked his listeners Wednesday, referring to the prospect of a presidential debate between President Trump and Pete Buttigieg, left.

He added, “a gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?”

Limbaugh received the Presidential Medial of Freedom during Trump’s State of the Union address last week, a day after he revealed he has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

AOC says Bloomberg’s stop-and-frisk damage-control bid falls short

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday that she wasn’t buying billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to distance himself from his 2015 remarks about “stop and frisk,” a controversial anti-crime policy that was used when he was mayor of New York City.

“People’s lives were ruined,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told reporters on Capitol Hill about the Bloomberg policy, according to The Hill. “So are those folks going to get their records expunged? With a tweet? They’re not. So I think that we need something a little bit more than that.”

“Stop and frisk was a uniquely and largely Bloomberg-administration policy,” she added later. “I don’t think he can blame it on a predecessor.”

“Stop and frisk was a uniquely and largely Bloomberg-administration policy. I don’t think he can blame it on a predecessor.”

— U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

CNN REPORTER ACCUSED OF ‘DISMISSING’ BLOOMBERG’S STOP-AND-FRISK REMARKS PREVIOUSLY WORKED AT BLOOMBERG TELEVISION

In a statement Tuesday, Bloomberg claimed he “inherited” stop and frisk – without mentioning his mayoral predecessor, Rudy Giuliani, by name – and added that the policy was “overused.” He then claimed that while he “cut it back by 95%,” he regretted not having done so “faster and sooner.”

The statement was in response to the resurfacing of a 2015 video in which Bloomberg said “ninety-five percent” of murders in New York appeared to follow a familiar pattern.

“They are male, minorities, 16-25,” Bloomberg says in the video, referring to both murder suspects and their victims. “That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city [inaudible]. And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”

He also says he “put all the cops in minority neighborhoods” because “that’s where all the crime is.”

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to distance himself from 2015 remarks about the anti-crime policy “stop and frisk” didn’t win approval from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

But critics argued that stop-and-frisk granted police officers too much liberty in detaining, questioning and searching people, thus violating their constitutional rights in many cases. They added that minorities were far more likely than whites to be stopped by police for no reason.

New York Civil Liberties Union data show police stops increased from 97,296 in 2002, when Bloomberg became mayor, to 685,724 in 2011, then dropped sharply to 191,851 in 2013, Bloomberg’s final year in office, The Hill reported. Nearly 90 percent of those stopped were not charged with any crime, the figures show.

Now that Bloomberg, a former Republican and independent, is running as a Democrat, he has been expressing regrets about the policy as he tries to win votes from liberals and minority groups, who have regarded the policy as unfair, particularly to African-Americans.

Bloomberg has also touted endorsements he has received from prominent African-Americans, such as Congressional Black Caucus members Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Lucy McBath of Georgia and Stacey Plaskett of the Virgin Islands.

Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president.

On Tuesday, another Sanders supporter – his national campaign co-chair Nina Turner, an Ohio state senator – called on Bloomberg to end his presidential campaign because of his stop-and-frisk policy, Axios reported.

Rudy Giuliani rips Bidens and media: ‘They are lying and lying and lying and the corrupt media just repeat it’

The president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani responded to those upset following Attorney General William Barr announcing that the Justice Department will review information about Ukraine from the former mayor of New York City, saying he is not receiving special treatment.

“Not only am I not I’m not getting special treatment. I’ve been getting terrible treatment,” Giuliani sad Wednesday on “Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream.” “This should have been investigated three years ago. If President Trump had gone on the stage and said, ‘I pressured the president of another country to dismiss a prosecutor,’ there’d be an investigation the next day.”

REPUBLICANS SEEK HUNTER BIDEN TRAVEL RECORDS FROM SECRET SERVICE SHORTLY AFTER TRUMP ACQUITTAL

“In fact, they tried to say President Trump said something like that about two months ago,” Giuliani quipped.

Giuliani told Bream he revealed “facts” regarding the allegation that the former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter committed multiple crimes in Ukraine, China and Iraq 10 months ago but that “nobody paid attention.

“They are lying and lying and lying,” a frustrated Giuliani told Bream. “And the corrupt media just repeat it.”

Barr confirmed Monday that the DOJ is reviewing the information through an “intake process” to gauge its credibility.

“The Justice Department has the obligation to have an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant,” Barr told reporters. “But as I did say to Senator [Lindsey] Graham … we have to be very careful …with respect to any information coming from the Ukraine.”

Giuliani told Bream he had a “smoking gun,” which on “Watters’ World” Saturday host Jesse Watters summarized as “a ’roundabout’ — an international wire to avoid detection disguised as a loan.”

Bream pressed Giuliani on the claims put forth with the former mayor telling the host to listen to his podcast.

“Look, Biden is so guilty. It is so obvious this was a bribe,” Giuliani said. “You have to be a fool not to see it.”

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., sent a letter to Barr seeking answers to the “channel” set up to vet Giuliani’s information, which CBS News reports is the U.S. Attorney’s office in Pittsburgh.

“Whether or not you are in league with Giuliani and his associates, DOJ guidelines and regulations exits to protect you and the Department from even the appearance of a conflict of interest or any impropriety,” Nadler wrote.

Sanders’ Rivals Capitalize On Dispute With Nevada Union Over ‘Medicare For All’

An influential Nevada labor union’s negative characterization of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s “Medicare for All” health care plan escalated into a political food fight on Wednesday after the union accused his supporters of “viciously” attacking the union and its members, and three of Sanders’s rivals expressed support for the union in the face of those complaints.

The controversy stems from the Culinary Workers Union’s warning on a voter education flyer distributed to its 60,000 members ― casino and hotel workers across Nevada ― that Sanders’s plan to enact single-payer health care would “end Culinary Healthcare,” as the union’s high-quality insurance is known. The message, first reported by The Nevada Independent on Tuesday night, reflects the concerns of union leaders about the fate of health care plans they fought for through decades of collective bargaining, as well as a determination to demonstrate their value to members in a “right-to-work” state where workers are not required to pay union dues. (Some critics suspected the flyer had more to do with the union’s ties to leading figures in the Democratic establishment, including former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.)

The unfavorable voter education program is liable to hurt Sanders’s chances with an influential constituency ahead of the Nevada Democratic caucus on Feb. 22.

So Sanders supporters ― and proponents of Medicare for All more broadly ― treated it as a political attack. They immediately reacted with outrage, arguing that the flyers misrepresented Sanders’s plan, which promises more generous health care and the opportunity for unions to obtain new concessions at the bargaining table in exchange for the health care they earned through negotiation.

Some of those supporters directed their invective at the union with mean-spirited, profane and, at times, racist and sexist language, according to the union.

Bethany Khan, a spokeswoman for the union, told HuffPost she has received roughly a dozen calls an hour since 6 a.m. PST from angry Sanders supporters, who found her contact information online. Some of the callers made hateful remarks about the gender and heritage of union members, who are largely female and from immigrant communities.

Khan shared with HuffPost one of the nastier emails the union received, claiming it was one of many the union had gotten that day. In it, a self-described Sanders supporter issued a vague threat of violence.

Westlake Legal Group 5e44d95121000031002692d1 Sanders’ Rivals Capitalize On Dispute With Nevada Union Over ‘Medicare For All’

Jessica Rinaldi/Boston Globe/Getty Images Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) celebrates his New Hampshire primary win on Tuesday. A Nevada union’s negative portrayal of his health care plan sparked a verbal brawl on Wednesday.

Wednesday afternoon, the union went public with its dismay at the reaction to its voter education program. In a statement, union President Geoconda Argüello-Kline defended the flyer on the grounds that it simply articulated the union’s investment in a health care plan that its members “have built, sacrificed for, and went on strike for 6 years, 4 months, and 10 days to protect.”

“It’s disappointing that Senator Sanders’ supporters have viciously attacked the Culinary Union and working families in Nevada simply because our union has provided facts on what certain healthcare proposals might do to take away the system of care we have built over 8 decades,” Argüello-Kline said.

“We have always stood up for what we believe in and will continue to do so,” she added. “The Culinary Union has faced some of the toughest companies who wanted to break our union, and even the President of the United States Donald Trump ― and won.”

Even before Argüello-Kline’s comments, Sanders’s competitors sensed an opportunity with a union whose legendary turnout operation helped Nevada stay in the Democratic column in the 2016 presidential election. On Wednesday morning, Buttigieg tweeted a not-so-subtle reminder to Nevada union members that his “Medicare for All Who Want It” plan protects “union members’ freedom to choose the coverage that’s best for them.”

After Argüello-Kline’s public statement, though, the flood gates opened. Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and former Vice President Joe Biden all tweeted their support for the Culinary Workers Union’s members.

Biden went first, tweeting that he stands “with the working men and women of [the Culinary Union] because supporting labor means supporting our unions.”

But the remarks from Warren, who has at once cast herself as a unity candidate and begun to more explicitly contrast herself with Sanders, were notable.

“No one should attack [the Culinary Union] and its members for fighting hard for themselves and their families,” she tweeted. “Like them, I want to see every American get high-quality and affordable health care — and I’m committed to working with them to achieve that goal.”

A spokesperson for Sanders did not immediately respond to a request for comment on his rivals’ remarks.

Warren’s statement reflects the degree to which she has distanced herself from the Sanders plan since signing onto his legislation in 2017 and stating at the first Democratic presidential debate in June that she was “with Bernie” on Medicare for All. 

Under pressure this fall, she broke her Medicare for All plan into two stages, promising to introduce the transition off of private coverage by her third year in office and only after passing a public option in a separate bill. Sanders, by contrast, vows to introduce his Medicare for All bill, which transitions all Americans onto a single, public program over a four-year period, within weeks of taking office.

Warren’s decision to moderate the pace of her Medicare for All plan’s timeline ― a deliberate effort to appeal to Democratic constituencies like the Culinary Union ― has not yet made a difference in the polls. She finished fourth in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

But it does appear to have won her slightly more favorable treatment from the Culinary Union. While the union told its members that Sanders will “end” its health care plan and “require” Medicare for All, the union told members that Warren would “replace Culinary Healthcare after 3-year transition or at the end of collective bargaining agreements.”

The most recent poll conducted in Nevada shows Biden with a modest lead. But the state has not been surveyed since mid-January, and Sanders enjoys new momentum after a narrow win in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday that sealed his status as a front-runner in a crowded field. 

It is unclear whether complaints about the conduct of Sanders’s base of supporters will resonate in Nevada. Sanders instructed his supporters to engage rivals with civility shortly after launching his second presidential bid in February 2019, though complaints have surfaced about some of his partisans’ vitriol on social media again this election cycle.

His supporters counter that the Vermont senator’s establishment critics exaggerate the extent of noxious behavior in their ranks in an effort to discredit Sanders and his policies.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Government is spying on us without warrants, in violation of Constitution

The Framers … conferred, as against the Government, the right to be let alone — the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by civilized men.” — Justice Louis Brandeis (1856-1941)

While we were all consumed by impeachment, a pernicious piece of legislation was slowly and silently making its way through Congress. It is a renewal of Section 215 of the Patriot Act.

The Patriot Act of 2001 has three sections that are scheduled to expire on March 15. One of those sections is the infamous 215, which authorized the federal government to capture without a warrant all records of all people in America held by third parties.

Do we really want the federal government to spy without warrants? How can Congress, which has sworn to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, legislate such a blatant violation of it? Here is the backstory.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS BOYCOTT INTEL HEARING, ACCUSE SCHIFF OF IGNORING FISA ABUSE

After the Constitution was ratified in 1789, it was soon amended to recognize the existence of natural rights and to keep the government from interfering with them. As Brandeis wrote 140 years afterward, the most comprehensive of those rights was the right to be let alone, which today we call privacy.

To secure that right, the Fourth Amendment was ratified. The purpose of the Fourth Amendment was to prevent the government from utilizing general warrants and to require judicially authorized search warrants issued under narrow circumstances. James Madison, who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, shared the hatred that colonists-turned-Americans had for general warrants.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

A general warrant was a document issued by a secret court in London authorizing the bearer of the document, usually a British soldier or intelligence agent, to search wherever he wished and to seize whatever he found. The applicant for the warrant needed to demonstrate to the court only that the warrant was intended to unearth something that the government wanted. Because these warrants did not specify the object of the search, there was no limit to them.

Hence Madison’s language in the Fourth Amendment preserving privacy but permitting the government to invade it only upon a showing, under oath, of probable cause of crime, and then requiring the warrant to specify in writing the place to be searched or the person or thing to be seized.

More from Opinion

After 9/11, in the collective spirit of fear, timidity and subservience to the presidency, and in utter disregard for its members’ oaths to uphold the Constitution, Congress enacted the Patriot Act. It permits one federal agent to authorize another federal agent to search and seize whatever the latter wishes to look at and capture so long as it is in the possession of third-party financial institutions.

Over the years, the definition of “financial institution” has been radically expanded by both legislation and presidential executive orders so as to include nearly every conceivable entity that has any records about any person in America — from banks to hospitals to lawyers to merchants to credit card issuers to telecoms and computer service providers and even the post office.

At the same time that the Patriot Act was being expanded, the National Security Agency — America’s 60,000-person-strong domestic spy apparatus — was not even pretending to follow legislation.

We know from Edward Snowden’s revelations — which have never been disputed by the government — that since 2003, the NSA has captured not only the records of Americans held by third parties but also the records of every keystroke touched by every person in America and every telephone call transmitted over fiber optic cable. That includes every email, text message and piece of data — even what was deleted. This warrantless mass surveillance continues today unabated.

Also unabated and equally unlawful and unconstitutional is the government’s use of cell towers as monitors of movement. Whenever anyone travels with a mobile device in the U.S., the nearest cell tower picks up signals from the mobile device, even turned off. The government, which either owns the cell towers or, under Section 215, may capture all the data the towers amass, can effectively follow any person with a mobile device in real-time.

How does the government get away with this?

The feds have labored mightily to keep all of these constitutional violations as far from judicial scrutiny as they can. They rightly fear — they know — that all of this violates the Fourth Amendment.

If their nefarious behavior, which we know they have used on the president of the United States and on the Supreme Court, comes under judicial scrutiny, the feds will argue that the Fourth Amendment only pertains to criminal prosecutions and not to domestic spying; thus, they can ignore it when they spy.

They have made up this argument out of thin air. There is neither a hint in the language of the amendment nor a whiff in its history to support that argument.

Has the government lost sight of our birthright? It is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — not to mention getting into heaven. How can we do any of this if the government we have hired to preserve our liberty is surreptitiously destroying it?

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Brandeis’ language about being let alone was written in 1928, in a dissent to a Supreme Court opinion that failed to recognize the right to privacy. Today, his dissent is the law of the land, but the feds ignore it. He wrote that there is more to life than owning material goods. There is the fulfillment of spiritual, intellectual and cultural goals and the achievement of intimate aspirations, none of which are the government’s business.

Why do we permit the government to assault our most basic freedoms, under the law or under the table?

Ex-NHL star Jeremy Roenick ‘angry’ he won’t return to NBC after suspension for sex remarks about co-workers

Former NHL player Jeremy Roenick won’t be returning to NBC Sports, a network spokesperson confirmed Wednesday, a little more than a month after he was suspended without pay for making inappropriate comments about his coworkers while on a podcast.

Roenick broke the news himself on Twitter, posting a video titled “What a Joke!!” In the video, he says he was angry and disappointed about NBC’s decision.

“I’m also grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to share my love, my passion and my knowledge of the game with millions of people, millions of fans,” he adds.

JEREMY ROENICK SUSPENDED BY NBC SPORTS OVER SEX-RELATED REMARKS ABOUT CO-WORKERS

He adds that he plans to return to broadcasting at some point, “better and more motivated to bring you the best entertainment and the best that I have for the game of hockey.”

Roenick also thanks the fans who’ve stood by him, saying their support has been “overwhelming.”

Roenick was suspended by the network indefinitely just before Christmas, days after he discussed a vacation to Portugal that he took with his wife and co-broadcaster Kathryn Tappen in which he joked about the idea of the three of them having sex together.

“I play it off like we’re going to bed together every night, the three of us,” he said on the podcast “Spittin’ Chiclets,” about when someone asked about their situation at the resort. “If it really came to fruition, that would really be good, but it’s never going to happen.”

Tappen issued a statement at the time, criticizing Roenick’s comments.

“While Jeremy and I continue to be good friends, what he said was unacceptable, especially among workplace colleagues. I do not condone his comments,” Tappen said.

Roenick later called anchor Patrick Sharp “so beautiful” and said: “I’d have to think about it if he asked me. … I wouldn’t say no right away,” and then seemed to contrast Sharp’s appearance with his and Anson Carter’s.

“It’s good to have a beautiful face that talks well, that knows the game because it’s totally the opposite when me and Anson get on there,” he joked.

Roenick had worked with NBC since 2010 and previously played 20 seasons in the NHL for several teams, including the Chicago BlackhawksPhiladelphia FlyersSan Jose SharksArizona Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings.

NBC said it would have no further comment.

Roenick is just the latest high-profile firing from NBC in the wake of Megyn Kelly who was let go by the network for questioning why blackface is offensive and Matt Lauer who lost his job in 2017 for sexual misconduct.

Michigan truck driver saved by steering wheel after steel beam breaks through windshield

A truck driver in Michigan came within inches of almost certain death last week when a six-foot-long steel beam crashed through his windshield while driving to Lansing.

Johnnie Lowe, the trucker and father-of-three, described a chilling scene. He told the Detroit Free Press that he was traveling toward Lansing on the I-96 when a steel beam slipped off the back of an unstable stake truck that was in front of him.

The beam bounced off the road and struck his window. He described it like a scene out of “Transformers.” The only thing separating him from the beam was his steering wheel.

Lowe took some photos at the scene and the beam could be seen resting on top of the wheel. Lowe figured that his truck was traveling at about 65 mph and said that if not for the steering wheel, the beam could have easily pierced his heart.

The paper reported that he was back at work on Monday and said he hopes that he could get the message out for fellow drivers to make  sure they secure their loads.

Laura Ingraham: ‘Globalists’ in the Democratic Party prefer Buttigieg to Bernie

Laura Ingraham took on the rise of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg Wednesday, mocking his media supporters with a large amount of sarcasm.

“This was supposed to be [Bernie Sanders’] time and then in Iowa, despite getting the most votes, he ended up with fewer delegates than Pete Buttigieg, giving the former mayor a rosy press narrative going into New Hampshire,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle.” “But even when Bernie pulled out a clear victory in New Hampshire, it’s still not even treated like a win.”

Ingraham laughed at the media for ignoring Sanders’ victories in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“They’ll support anybody except the guy who actually won. But the reason is obvious,” Ingraham said. “The establishment and the elites don’t want the curmudgeon socialist Bernie Sanders to run away with the nomination.”

“I don’t think they’ve ever loved a Midwesterner as much as they love Pete. He’s a charmer,” Ingraham said jokingly.

The host put forth that “globalists” in the Democratic Party would prefer Buttigieg over Sanders.

“Let’s face it, they want to hedge against Bernie and they know Pete will be putty in the hands of someone like [Chinese] President Xi,” Ingraham said. “And that’s good for the globalists.”

Ingraham dismissed Buttigieg’s experience and his time as mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

Ingraham credited Trump for Democrats supporting Buttigieg.

“Buttigieg really is kind of a bland composite of a lot of things, but with zero relevant experience,” Ingraham said. “The only thing he’s ever run, South Bend, Indiana, is a crime ridden mess.”
