Nigel Farage: Parliament doesn’t represent public opinion on Brexit

Westlake Legal Group FARAGE-CROP Nigel Farage: Parliament doesn't represent public opinion on Brexit Julia Musto fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/world/world-regions/europe/brexit fox-news/topic/the-european-union fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc dbdd014c-b318-52ab-97e2-2ef3716d59e3 article /FOX NEWS/SHOWS/Your World Cavuto/Interviews

Most members of Parliament don’t accurately represent the opinions of the nation when talking about leaving the European Union (EU), Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said Saturday.

Appearing on “CAVUTO Live” with host Neil Cavuto, Farage said that while he wants Brexit “more than anybody,” the right move here would be to leave Boris Johnson’s Brexit and “take back our independence,” claiming Johnson’s deal is more like a new EU treaty that would bind Britain and lead to more negotiations and acrimony.

“I’m pleased that Boris wants Brexit, but this is just not the right way,” he told Cavuto. “But, he’s not the real problem. The real problem, of course, is that we have a country that voted ‘leave’ and still wants to leave; most members of parliament want to remain.”

BREXIT VOTE DERAILED AT LAST MINUTE BY REBEL LAWMAKERS; BORIS JOHNSON PLEDGES NOT TO NEGOTIATE A DELAY

In a major blow to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, U.K. lawmakers voted Saturday to postpone a decision on whether to back his Brexit deal with the European Union, throwing a wrench into government plans to leave the bloc at the end of this month.

At a special session of Parliament intended to ratify the deal, lawmakers voted 322-306 to withhold their approval on the Brexit deal until legislation to implement it has been passed.

The vote aims to ensure that the United Kingdom can’t crash out of the EU without a divorce deal on the scheduled October 31 departure date. However, it means Johnson must ask the EU to delay Britain’s departure since Parliament previously passed a law compelling him to do that if a Brexit divorce deal were not passed by Saturday.

The government still hopes it can pass the needed legislation by the end of the month so the U.K. can leave on time.

“Opinion polling is very, very clear,” said Farage. “If you give people the binary choice ‘do you want to leave with a clean break Brexit or remain in the European Union’ there is a very, very comfortable lead for those who want to leave — bigger than we had in the referendum three years ago.”

“So, the British public are firm on this. Our politicians don’t reflect it,” he stated.

“My message to the prime m inister is rather, Boris, than pushing through a very bad new EU treaty better to play for time, let’s get a new general election and then hopefully we get a parliament that reflects the country and not just the career politicians currently sitting behind me,” he concluded.

DeMario Davis jokes he might send Pope ‘Man of God’ headband after supportive tweet

New Orleans Saints linebacker DeMario Davis said he might send Pope Francis one of his signature “Man of God” headbands after the Holy Father tweeted out his thanks for the team’s faith.

“It was a huge blessing,” Davis told Fox Nation host Raymond Arroyo in an interview that aired Friday.

“I liked it even more because I feel like it kind of flowed off our ‘Our Man of God’ thing … so now I got to send the Pope a ‘Man of God’ headband,” he said.

More from Media

Davis raised more than $60,000 for St. Dominic Hospital by selling “Man of God” and “Woman of God” headbands after facing a $7,000 fine for wearing his own during a game.

After the linebacker pledged to give 100 percent of the proceeds away, the NFL revoked his fine and, along with a matching grant, Davis was able to direct $120,000 to the hospital.

Describing his reaction to the initial fine, David said he felt “conflicted.” “Should I continue to wear it because of the messaging or would I follow the rule? Which would bring ultimate glory to God?,” he explained on Fox Nation’s “Laura and Raymond.”

Pope Francis apparently heard about Davis’ efforts and tweeted thanks on Sunday.

“Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints,” he said, alongside an emoji with the team’s logo. “They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession.”

Pergram: Dems want another independent counsel, about 80 percent chance they’ll hold impeachment vote

Westlake Legal Group Pelosi-Schiff Pergram: Dems want another independent counsel, about 80 percent chance they'll hold impeachment vote Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc b78a34c2-8ac4-5ad7-9587-0cbb19c0ed61 article

Chad Pergram, Fox News’ Senior Producer for Capitol Hill, said on Thursday that he thought there was about an 80 percent chance that Democrats would proceed with a vote on impeaching President Trump.

“I would put it at 80 percent right now,” Pergram said during Thursday’s “Hemmer Time” podcast.

His comments came just after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., held a press conference in which she pushed back on the idea that she needed to hold an official vote.

President Trump has been pushing Congress to hold a vote, apparently believing Democrats were either disingenuous or setting themselves up for a political catastrophe by pushing impeachment.

According to Pergram, Pelosi may have signaled her disposition towards impeachment when she sat with the press and, after discussing policy issues, allowed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., to answer questions related to impeachment.

KEN STARR: MULVANEY WAS ‘PRETTY CLOSE’ TO ADMITTING UKRAINE QUID PRO QUO, MAY BE ‘UNDER OATH’ SOON

“I think that was a very symbolic act by the Speaker. Actions speak louder than words,” Pergram told Fox News host Bill Hemmer.

Pelosi, he speculated, could have been “completely punting to Schiff” or trying to distance herself from the potential political fallout. “Was this a way to kind of say, alright, Adam, ball’s in your court — don’t screw this up and if you do, it’s not on me?” Pergram asked.

More from Media

At the end of September, Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry after months of resisting Democratic calls to do so amid the Russia investigation. It wasn’t until details surfaced surrounding Trump’s July call with Ukraine that she announced an inquiry.

Pergram told Hemmer that Democrats wanted another independent counsel like former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who effectively closed his part of the Russia investigation in the summer of 2019.

Pergram noted that prior impeachment proceedings — for former Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon — involved special prosecutors who provided evidence for committees.

“Here, they’re not taking Robert Mueller’s work. We’re into a different silo of information here — even though those silos may be cousins, Ukraine and Russia,” Pergram said.

“And so, while most of this work is in the Ukraine silo, very little of it dealt with Robert Mueller … if you talk to Adam Schiff, he’ll tell you this, that they are doing the work of the independent counsel because that doesn’t exist in this model right now and they’re saying if Bill Barr, the attorney general, was on the ball, he would have appointed an independent counsel to look into this issue,” he added.

Rep Francis Rooney announces retirement, wants to be a ‘model for term limits’

Westlake Legal Group Francis-Rooney-AP Rep Francis Rooney announces retirement, wants to be a 'model for term limits' Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc c67bb1bc-2c5f-56c5-b18e-47d29859c592 article

Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., became the latest in a long line of Republican lawmakers to announce their retirement in 2020, saying that he already accomplished what he sought to do as Florida’s representative.

Fox News host Leland Vittert had asked Rooney on Saturday if viewers should consider him one of the Republicans who wouldn’t run for re-election in 2020.

“Yes, you do. I’ve done what I came to do,” he told Vittert on “America’s News HQ.”

He pointed to his efforts in getting money for Everglades projects and getting an offshore drilling ban passed to protect Florida.

“We’ve gotten all the major projects underway,” he said.

He added that he wanted to be a model for term limits.

“People need to realize … this is public service, not public life,” the second-term congressman told Vittert.

The Florida congressman previously served as the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See under former President George W. Bush.

Rooney told Vittert that he was “really tired” of the intense partisanship in Washington but wasn’t tired of having to answer for President Trump’s conduct.

MULVANEY COMMENTS SEIZED ON BY CRITICS SAYING IT’S PROOF OF UKRAINE QUID PRO QUO

Rooney’s announcement came as he expressed skepticism of President Trump’s July call with Ukraine and sought more information in House Democrats’ official impeachment inquiry surrounding the issue.

Rooney clarified, however, that his retirement won’t change the way he proceeds with impeachment, arguing that politicians should do the right thing at all times.

More from Media

He also pointed to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s comments, which he said was an explicit admission of a quid pro quo with Ukraine. “I think Mulvaney clarified, there is a point there,” he said.

President Trump has maintained the impeachment inquiry was a form of “harassment” and that his call with Ukraine was well within the scope of his legitimate powers as president. Democrats have alleged that the phone call showed troubling evidence of Trump leveraging foreign aid in order to force Ukraine into interfering in the 2020 election.

When Vittert asked Rooney whether other Republicans felt the same as him, Rooney indicated some did but he mostly felt like an “island.”

“I really felt like I’ve been on an island for some time,” he said, pointing to former House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., not passing offshore drilling legislation for Florida. At that point, he turned to former House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for help.

‘There’s a perception of impropriety’: Former White House officials say Doral G-7 breaks precedent

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'There's a perception of impropriety': Former White House officials say Doral G-7 breaks precedent

W.H. Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, during a press conference at the White House, announces the 2020 G7 summit will be held at Trump Doral in Miami. White House

WASHINGTON – The selection process for next year’s G-7 summit of leading industrial nations is a stark departure from past precedents for selecting the site, former administration officials say. 

Former Barack Obama and George W. Bush administration officials said the Trump Doral resort should not even have been under consideration because of the perception of conflicts of interest. 

Their comments to USA TODAY came after White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday announcement that the 2020 G-7 summit of leading industrial nations would be hosted at the Trump National Resort in Doral, Fla., was met with fury from Democrats and at least one Republican senator. 

In a statement, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler called it “among the most brazen examples yet of the President’s corruption,” and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, told reporters it was not appropriate to use taxpayer dollars at a Trump resort.

In a press briefing about the administration’s search process, Mulvaney argued they had used the same criteria as previous administrations, but “it became apparent at the end of that process that Doral was, by far and away – far and away – the best physical facility for this meeting.”

The Trump National Doral resort is owned by the Trump Organization, a collection of business entities owned mostly by President Donald Trump, though it is unclear what degree of involvement he has in the management in the company.

‘You wouldn’t even look at the property’

“You wouldn’t even look at the property because it doesn’t matter if it’s the best property on Earth. There’s a perception of impropriety,” said Johanna Maska, who handled the Obama administration’s advance preparations for the 2012 G-8 in Camp David, Md. 

She noted that while Hawaii and Chicago had been under consideration for the 2012 G-8, they had taken all possible steps to work with city vendors and avoid any potential conflicts of interest. Though, “I guess it’s a little different when the vendor is your family,” she said. 

Greg Jenkins, who worked on the Bush administration’s advance preparations for the 2004 G-8 in Sea Island, Ga., said that administration would have never considered holding the event at a venue like the Bush ranch in Texas. 

“I mean, to be handed a list of places, like ‘oh, look at that. Looks like the only place it’s going to work in all of America is a place that happens to be owned by the President.’ Right. Well, that’s not a coincidence at all,” said Greg Jenkins, who worked on the Bush administration’s advance preparations for the 2004 G-8 in Sea Island, Ga. 

How a summit is planned

Summits like the G-7 are a massive undertaking, with delegations following every world leader and thousands of journalists from international press corps descending on the location. 

According to Maska, the “host country has a lot of control” over the planning of summits of world leaders like the G-7 or the G-20, unlike other summits like those for NATO, which have strict guidelines. 

There are “a number of different pressing, different staff needs, different leader needs, security needs, and all of those are taken into account,” she explained.

It has to be a secure venue, with private entrances, she noted. One would not want to hold it in a hotel with lots of glass windows, she explained.  

Other major concerns would be potential locations for photo ops, for each delegation to have a working space, and locations for leaders to meet up with each other.  

Jenkins said that in the Bush administration, it was at least a two-step process to identify a venue. 

“We identified a bunch of venues around the country that would be just candidates to be considered,” he explained. “And we did what essentially a lot of desk-side research first, to cull the list,” before anyone flew out to visit sites. 

Mike Ready, who oversaw security coordination for the Secret Service for large events like the G-7, said they would have assessed “The security impact on where we’re going. Is it something that we can secure easily? Or is this something that’s going to be, you know, a severe challenge or maybe have a major impact on the community be there?”

A city prepares

Despite some earlier reports, the city was not entirely blindsided by the announcement. 

The Trump administration had advised the city of the possibility of the G-7 being held there last June after news had leaked, Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez told USA TODAY.

The city had budgeted about $311,000 for potential overtime pay and equipment for officers in the event the G-7 were to be held there, he said. 

Since June, though, the mayor said he had not had any contact with the Trump administration or the Secret Service, nor had his police chief been in contact with the administration.

Since the announcement, he had one “brief conversation” with a staffer in the White House Intergovernmental Affairs Office.

He looked forward to seeing the G-7 come to Doral, though, calling it a “great opportunity for us to showcase ourselves to the rest of the United States and the world.” 

Bermudez said he was a former Democrat, now a registered Republican who had voted for Trump in 2016, though the city’s mayoral position was nonpartisan. 

Past precedent

The hosting of a summit of world leaders at a resort with ties to the presidency is not without precedent. The 1976 G-7 summit was held at a resort in Puerto Rico owned by Laurance Rockefeller, the younger brother of then-Vice President Nelson Rockefeller.

Nelson Rockefeller, as CBS News reports, took much more extensive steps to disclose his financial dealings and released a dozen years of tax returns once he became vice president. 

Trump, however, has not released his tax returns.

Cher offers pay legal bills for fired security guard who used racial slur

Cher has offered to pay the legal bills for Marlon Anderson.

In a tweet on Friday, the singer said she’ll cover the expense of any lawsuit the black Wisconsin high school security might file after he was fired for using a racial slur while telling a student not to use that word.

Anderson said a disruptive student at Madison West High School used the racist term on Oct. 9.

Dems introduce legislation to block G7 summit at Trump’s Doral resort

A trio of House Democrats introduced legislation Friday to block President Trump from hosting next year’s G7 summit at one of his Florida resorts.

Reps. Lois Frankel from Florida, Bennie Thompson from Mississippi and Steve Cohen from Tennessee proposed the Trump’s Heist Undermines the G-7 (THUG) Act. A companion bill sponsored by Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., will be introduced in the Senate, according to lawmakers.

The House bill would prohibit funding for the three-day summit at Trump National Doral Golf Club in June. It would also require Trump to submit to Congress documents related to the decision to host the summit at Doral, lawmakers said.

“[Trump] is unashamed of his corruption,” Frankel said in a press release. “He is abusing the office of the presidency and violating law by directing millions of dollars of American and foreign money to his family enterprises by holding an important meeting of world leaders at his Doral resort.”

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney made the announcement on Thursday that next year’s G7 meeting will be held at Doral June 10-12.

Mulvaney said the decision will save taxpayers millions because the resort will provide its services at cost.

Democratic lawmakers claimed Friday that past G7 summits have cost “upwards of $40 million.”

ANDREW MCCARTHY: TRUMP DORAL RESORT PICK FOR G-7 A ‘REAL UNFORCED ERROR’

Doral was selected out of 12 potential sites to host the international gathering, with Trump personally recommending his resort. Mulvaney told reporters Thursday it was “the best place.”

When questioned about the optics of hosting the event at a Trump resort — and any potential financial gains the president might realize as a result — Mulvaney said the Trump brand “doesn’t need any help.”

“The Trump family made their money before they went into politics,” he said.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have delighted fans by sharing a heartfelt throwback photo from their spectacular wedding day.

The sweet image was shared with their 9.7 million followers on their SussexRoyal account yesterday.

The royal wedding photo shows Prince Harry beaming at his beautiful new bride at the altar in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

It was shared as the Duke of Sussex, 35, attended a mental health workshop with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who officiated their wedding in May 2018.

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY SHARE SWEET MOMENT WITH SON ARCHIE IN UPCOMING DOCUMENTARY

The caption said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a close personal relationship with The Archbishop of Canterbury, who officiated their wedding and also oversaw the baptism of their son.

“The Duke was pleased to attend this special conference to lend his support to The Archbishop and highlight the important work being done to tackle mental health challenges, specifically for the younger generation.”

The workshop yesterday aimed to focus on how the church and community organizations can help young people to open up about mental health.

Fans were quick to gush about the wedding shot, with one saying: “Absolutely beautiful couple. stay strong a lot of love.”

And another added: “So amazing and their wedding. So magical!!!”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY REMOVED FROM ROYAL FOUNDATION WEBSITE: REPORT

The post came as a clip emerged of Meghan holding back tears as she was interviewed for a new ITV documentary “Harry and Meghan: An African Journey” airing on Sunday at 9 pm.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, was asked by host Tom Bradby about how royal life has been a “struggle.” particularly as a new mom.

Tom followed the couple, and five-month-old Archie, throughout their African tour which saw Prince Harry undertake solo engagements.

She fights back tears, saying: “Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know…

“And especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed it’s, well…

PRINCE HARRY SAYS MOM PRINCESS DIANA’S DEATH IS A ‘WOUND THAT FESTERS’

“And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Tom asks her directly if it is fair to say that it has been a struggle, and looking emotional, Meghan replies: “Yes.”

The hour-long documentary features interviews with the royal couple as well as an insight into their work, and how they’re balancing public and private life.

Meanwhile, a clip from the documentary released on Thursday showed Prince Harry revealing he feels the ‘festering wounds’ left by his mother’s death.

Prince Harry opened up about how important Africa was to him as he came to terms with the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

The model, 27, uploaded the photo of the back of the toddler’s head as she stood watching the players on the baseball field.

Chile’s Capital Engulfed In Chaos As Metro Protests Intensify

Protests in Santiago, Chile’s capital, shut down metro service Friday afternoon and left a high-rise engulfed in flames, prompting President Sebastian Pinera to declare a state of emergency in the city.

The Santiago metro network will be closed through Sunday, according to its website, citing “serious damage.” The protesters, mostly high school students, according to the Associated Press, were spurred by the recent public transportation fare hikes. The students struck stations during the afternoon commute, dodging fares, damaging turnstiles and smashing glass as seen on videos posted online. Large objects, such as a metal sheet, can be seen thrown onto the metro tracks, blocking incoming trains and sending sparks flying as it came into contact with the electrified rail.

The rate hike went into effect Oct. 6, increasing the cost of a metro ride by 4%, according to the AP, partially due to Chile’s dependence on imported energy. Bus fares were also affected. The move comes amid growing discontent among Chileans as the cost of living – gas, groceries, rent – continues to rise without improvement in salaries. Pinera, in contrast, has a net worth of about $2.8 billion, according to Forbes.

“To be honest, I think there’s a big feeling of injustice that goes beyond the thing about the metro and buses,” Cristián Castro, Director of History Department at Universidad Diego Portales, said. “The cost of living in Chile has no logic when related to the paychecks you receive at the end of the month, unless you’re part of the upper class. The system has favored too few for too long. “

Students began turnstile-hopping protests as early as Monday, according to the AP, but their demonstrations turned violent yesterday.

The first protests on Friday left hundreds of thousands of commuters stranded, according to the AP. Police armed with riot gear, tear gas and batons responded, beating protesters, dragging them out of the stations and making arrests, but were met with violent resistance. The AP reported that police withdrew from some stations. Protesters expanded the riots beyond the metro stations, taking to the streets, prompting armored military vehicles with water cannons to push back the protesters.

As the night continued, the protests intensified. Reuters reported that protesters set fires at metro stations and kiosks, looted stores and barricaded station entrances with bikes, metal bars and other objects. Footage posted online by RT showed a bus enveloped in flames, and the AP reported that police vehicles were attacked with stones. The riots expanded beyond the metro stations, as Santiago residents took to the streets to protest the rate hikes.

Around 10 p.m. local time, a high-rise building belonging to Enel Chile, an energy company, was firebombed, according to the company’s website. Chile’s “largest electricity group in terms of installed capacity,” the company’s corporate headquarters can be seen in videos burning from the first floor to the top. The company said that the emergency staircase had been targeted, but that all workers were evacuated without injuries.

At midnight, President Pinera announced a state of emergency in Santiago and surrounding regions during a press conference, handing responsibility of the city’s security to the military and giving it the authority to restrict constitutional rights to assembly and movement. Maj. Gen. Javier Iturriaga del Campo has been appointed Head of National Defense, according to Pinera.

“The objective of this state of emergency is very simple, but very deep,” Pinera said.

“Guarantee the rights of each and every one of our countrymen who have been seriously violated by the action of true criminals, who do not respect anything or anyone.”

Pinera added during the conference that his government will invoke the State Security Law to prosecute those involved with the attacks on the capital’s metro system. The AP reported that the law carries prison sentences of three to five years. Pinera said, however, that he sympathized with those affected by the rate hikes.

“For that reason, in the coming days, our government is going to summon a transversal dialogue, and we will use all efforts within our reach to be able to mitigate and alleviate the situation of our compatriots,” Pinera said.

In a televised statement on CNN Chile, transportation minister Gloria Hutt said that it was possible for metro service to be restored, gradually, next week.

Social media responded to the protests, with many drawing parallels between the armored vehicles patrolling the streets of Santiago and the repressive Pinochet regime, the military junta in Chile that suppressed opposition through arrests, torture and murder from 1973 to 1990.

Others have compared the protests to similar recent demonstrations in Hong Kong and Catalonia.
