Dems more focused on resisting than legislating, says Charlie Hurt

The Democratic resistance from the Golden State is coming at a high price tag, Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Ed Henry, Hurt said the resistance was costing Democrats more than just money.

In less than three years, the more than 60 lawsuits filed by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra against the Trump administration have cost state taxpayers $21 million.

CA AG’S ANTI-TRUMP LAWSUITS ARE POLITICAL, HAVE COST TAXPAYERS $21M

Since Trump took office in 2017, Becerra has sued the administration over issues including the president’s travel ban, protecting DACA and sanctuary cities, fighting family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border and plans to construct the border wall, according to FOX 40 of Sacramento.

As of last May, California has gotten favorable rulings in at least 25 of the cases, The Mercury News of San Jose reported.

“It underscores this thing that we’re seeing more and more with Democrats these days — they really would rather posture than actually legislate and it’s not just in California,” said Hurt.

He told Henry that in examining this “crazy impeachment pursuit,”  House Democrats “have issued more subpoenas in order to pin something on Donald Trump than they have passed legislation that has gone on to become laws.”

“And you have perfectly good legislation that would pass the House, pass the Senate — like the CanadaMexico trade deal — Democrats refuse to bring it up because they would rather spend all this time talking about impeachment,” said Hurt.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is now saying that the USMCA deal won’t come up again in Congress till 2020.

“But, when you look at the number of these cases…[they’re] way beyond principle into simply trying to make a brute political point that I think wouldn’t even float in regular Democratic circles much less general election circles,” he concluded.

Geoff Shepard: Trump impeachment and Watergate – As a Nixon defense attorney I can compare them

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6107810383001_6107814598001-vs Geoff Shepard: Trump impeachment and Watergate – As a Nixon defense attorney I can compare them Geoff Shepard fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc bed13407-b074-50b3-bc4c-2bd088617ea8 article

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team famously championed its modus operandi of silence during its probe of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. But since attorneys failed to destroy President Trump, their top dog is trying a new trick.

Following the lackluster Trump impeachment hearings in the House Intelligence Committee, Mueller prosecutor Andrew “The Pit Bull” Weissmann took to cable news to coach Democrats on their performance. He urged them to go bigger and bolder with their argument by comparing President Trump’s conduct directly to President Richard Nixon’s in the Watergate scandal.

Days later, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., did just that by claiming: “What [Trump] did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did.”

DEMS COULD DRAFT 4 ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, GOP PLANS FOR FULL SENATE TRIAL, SOURCES SAY

The comparisons between the scandals are hitting a fever pitch. So as a former member of Nixon’s Watergate defense team, I feel obliged to point out similarities, differences and the source of the danger both presidents encountered: The Revenge of the Special Prosecutors.

Every legal defense begins by understanding the accusations and applicable laws. The Constitution is a bit vague on defining an impeachable offense, using the words “Treason, Bribery or Other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

President Gerald Ford defined impeachment in political terms, as “whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”

This is not great for any sitting president, as it means the opposition can essentially make up the charges as it goes along.

More from Opinion

In the drive to impeach Trump, Democrats began pushing a charge centered on the Latin phrase “quid pro quo.” When the public yawned at that, Democrats pivoted to English and said they were looking at “bribery” involving Trump. Wise move, as it is at least an enumerated offense. But what does it mean in this context?

Democrats are still trying to figure that out, but they keep amplifying these unjust accusations to make Trump sound terrible until they can nail down a persuasive definition.

Trump has bigger problems to worry about than the ever-fluctuating Democratic message. His opponents are leveraging Watergate precedent and hoping for creative legal opinions to eradicate the secrecy of grand jury proceedings.

A grand jury’s function involves such one-sided procedures that there are strict rules on secrecy. Targets are forbidden to have counsel present, are unable to cross-examine accusatory witnesses, and are not permitted to produce evidence or witnesses of their own. Even if no indictments follow, the elicited testimony can be very damaging to those investigated.

Metaphorically, grand jury examinations aren’t meant for public consumption because they’re legal colonoscopies.

President Gerald Ford defined impeachment in political terms, as “whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”

Yet tidbits gleaned from questioning by politicized prosecutors who conducted such investigations is why congressional committees, both now and during Watergate, salivate over gaining access to the raw depositions. Yet the entire design of the investigators, from beginning to end, was to harm their presidential foe.

The Watergate special prosecutors had grand jurors adopt a report containing testimony that they asked be transmitted to the House.  Known as the “road map,” this is credited with leading to impeachment proceedings against Nixon that led to his resignation.

As Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski later told Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, the House was “very slow” getting started and would never have gotten off the ground without information provided by the special prosecutors.

Today we’re watching something of the same thing, where the House Judiciary Committee has gone to court to demand grand jury testimony cited in the Mueller report. Judge Beryl Howell upheld their subpoena, finding the committee’s demand was in the nature of a judicial inquiry, and thus within an exception to the statute forbidding release of grand jury information.

It’s been widely speculated that the Mueller team members knew they couldn’t find anything on Trump, so they created their own road map for Congress. It’s important to note that Weissmann was their true lead strategist. Mueller was just a figurehead.

Weissmann knew that when the Watergate prosecutors concluded they couldn’t indict Nixon, they realized they needed to get their information to Congress as a basis for his impeachment.

Watergate’s original special prosecutor, Archibald Cox, played a leadership role with then-Sen. John F. Kennedy in 1960, accompanying him on the presidential campaign plane and then serving as Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy’s solicitor general.

We know that Weissmann was politically active, too. He was a Hillary Clinton fan, who reportedly spent election night 2016 at her campaign’s party. It’s scary to think how aggressively someone with a blatantly political agenda like Weissmann would have conducted Mueller’s grand jury investigations.

Even worse, we now know that during Watergate the special prosecutors colluded with House investigators by secretly sharing prosecutorial information. In today’s media environment it is hard to believe that Weissmann’s team would jeopardize their long game and risk getting caught in such secret meetings.

So Weissmann has found an apparent loophole to continue directing the assault — as a TV pundit drawing on his insights gained from the Mueller investigation.

Trump benefits from the confusion of Democratic messaging and their insatiable desire to impeach him before voters express their own views at the ballot box. The Democrats failed with Russia, so now they’re trying Ukraine. Tomorrow, who knows? As President Ford forewarned, it can be whatever they want it to be.

With the “Pit Bull” now becoming the Democratic messaging maestro, equipped with a quiver of grand jury secrets he helped to plant, I’d offer my own Latin advice to Trump’s legal team: “cave canem.” Beware of the dog.

Hong Kong toVote After Months of Protests and Rising Violence

Westlake Legal Group 23hk-elect3-facebookJumbo Hong Kong toVote After Months of Protests and Rising Violence Politics and Government Hong Kong Protests (2019) Hong Kong elections Demonstrations, Protests and Riots China

HONG KONG — After months of antigovernment protests in Hong Kong, voters on Sunday will have a chance to cast their opinion on the city’s future — albeit through an election for a group of local officials who mainly deal with noise complaints, bus stop locations and neighborhood beautification projects.

The district council is one of the lowest rungs of Hong Kong’s elected offices. It is usually a quiet affair focused on community issues.

But the race has taken on outsize significance in the midst of the increasingly violent protests that have divided the city. The election will be the first test of whether the protests can transform public anger that has led millions to take to the streets into actual votes, or whether the populace has grown weary of acts of civil disobedience that have snarled transportation and forced the closing of schools and businesses.

“Politically speaking, the battle of the district councils as a whole is a crucial battle in taking control,” said Eddie Chu, a pro-democracy legislator who is also running for district council.

It has been an especially intense election season. Several candidates, on both sides, have been attacked. The police fired tear gas at a campaign rally this month and arrested three candidates. Fears have been widespread that the city leadership could postpone the vote over the unrest.

Here’s a look at the race and what is at stake:

A call to expand Hong Kong’s limited democracy is one of the demands of the protest movement, which began in June over a now-withdrawn proposal that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China. Protesters have called for direct elections for the entire legislature, where currently only 40 of the 70 seats are selected by popular vote. They have also called for the chief executive, who is selected by a largely pro-Beijing election committee, to instead be chosen by voters.

The district councils have no lawmaking power. They control small amounts of public funds for simple infrastructure, like rain shelters. They lodge concerns with government departments over noise, traffic, sanitation and other issues. (Of the 479 district council seats, 452 are directly elected.)

The district council members do have a modest role in choosing the chief executive, Hong Kong’s highest official. Whichever side wins a majority of the seats controls 117 votes in the 1,200-member chief executive election committee.

That election committee is dominated by pro-establishment corporate interests, and the chief executives they have selected have always been loyal to Beijing. But a win would give the overall pro-democracy camp control of an additional 10 percent of the votes, and put it close to the 150 votes necessary to nominate a candidate.

The brochures of district council candidates typically show neighborhood concerns they pledge to fix: trash-filled alleys, air-conditioners dripping on sidewalks and streets lined with illegally parked cars.

This year, several pro-democracy candidates have included protest slogans on their materials. Law Cheuk-yung, 22, said he was inspired to run for district council because of recent social movements. He said he would demand answers from the police after residents complained of possible testing of tear gas in his district, Tuen Mun.

“I want to imagine local government being more responsive,” he said. “At the moment the district council is just a rubber stamp. They do whatever the government wants.”

For such candidates, it is more about playing to the sentiment of the protests rather than taking action. They would not have much of a role in addressing protesters’ demands, which include an investigation into the police’s use of force, offering amnesty to those arrested in the protests and expanding direct elections.

“They are all trying to capitalize on public anger,” said Suzanne Pepper, a scholar of Chinese politics who lives in Hong Kong.

Establishment parties have long had an advantage in these races, in part because they are much better funded, with backing from businesses. Currently the pro-Beijing camp holds 327 district council seats versus 124 for the pro-democracy group.

Rising interest in the election has meant that pro-democracy candidates are participating in every race, unlike previous years, when some establishment district council members ran unopposed. And after worries about disqualifications, only one of the camp’s candidates, the prominent activist Joshua Wong, was barred from running this year for political reasons. An election officer ruled that Mr. Wong could not uphold Hong Kong law because his political organization viewed independence from China as a possible goal for the city.

A string of violent attacks on election candidates has hung over the race. Twelve opposition figures, including prominent politicians and activists as well as first-time candidates, have been ambushed and bloodied by gangs of masked men or attacked while canvassing for votes.

“We can see Hong Kong isn’t as free and as civilized as we’d previously imagined,” said Jannelle Leung, a 25-year-old accountant who was struck in the back of her head with a hard object in early October the day she announced she was officially running. She also said she received sexually harassing phone calls before the attack.

Jocelyn Chau, a first-time candidate like Ms. Leung who received similar lurid calls before being punched by a man while canvassing last month in the pro-Beijing neighborhood of North Point, criticized the government for not condemning the attacks on pro-democracy figures. “Not even superficial gestures,” said Ms. Chau, 23.

The polarizing pro-Beijing lawmaker Junius Ho was injured in a knife attack this month and his offices were vandalized. He called the attack “a dark day for the district council election,” adding that the “orderly election had been completely obliterated.”

The attacks on candidates and vandalism have stirred worries that the election might be postponed. Some pro-democracy figures have said that a delay could harm their strength at the polls.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, said the government would do its best to ensure the election would go on as scheduled. Chris Tang, the Hong Kong police commissioner, said Friday that there would be a large police presence across the city on Sunday to prevent violence.

The city was convulsed by two weeks of intense protest after the death of a college student who fell from a parking structure near where the police had clashed with protesters. Several campuses have been engulfed by large demonstrations, including Chinese University of Hong Kong, where protesters clashed with the police and occupied the college for five days, and at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where at one point more than 1,000 people were trapped by a police siege.

Patrick Nip, the secretary for constitutional and mainland affairs, warned Monday that further unrest would reduce the chances of the election’s being held as scheduled. He called for an end to violence “and all kinds of duress.”

In the past few days, protests have ebbed drastically, however, as the city prepared to take its conflicts to the polls.

Construction worker who survived deadly New Orleans hotel collapse faces deportation

A Honduran construction worker who reportedly attempted to warn managers about unsafe conditions prior to being injured in last month’s deadly partial collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans will be deported on Monday, his lawyers say.

Delmer Joel Ramirez Palma was arrested by immigration agents two days after the 18-story hotel fell onto a busy downtown intersection on Oct. 12, killing three people and injuring dozens.

Ramirez Palma managed to survive the collapse after he fell from the ninth to the sixth floor by swinging from a rope, according to the Guardian.

His wife and lawyers say he was hospitalized with serious injuries, including head trauma, an acute eye injury and internal inflammation.

Following the incident, Ramirez Pena was interviewed by a Spanish-language media outlet. Two days later, U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement arrested him while fishing with his family at a wildlife refuge, reports say.

They moved him to an immigration holding facility at the Alexandria International Airport in central Louisiana last week, as ICE agents prepare to deport him.

His attorneys warn that because Ramirez Palma was outspoken about the unsafe conditions at the hotel, deporting him could impact an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration into what caused the collapse.

They added that other undocumented immigrations are hesitant to talk with federal investigators about what happened for fear of deportation.

“I am sure the Hispanic workers there [at Hard Rock] don’t want to cooperate for the same reason. They are scared the same thing that happened to Joel can happen to them,” his wife, Tania Bueso told Nola.com.

Some of the safety concerns he attempted to shed light on included asymmetrical building measurements and uncured concrete that couldn’t support enough weight, his lawyers and wife say.

“He talks about how this disaster could have been avoided if they had been paid more attention when they could see — clearly — that the building, in some areas, wasn’t right,” Bueso told the outlet. “When he used the laser [measurement tool], he also said he had to check two or three times to make sure the measurement was right because the building was so imbalanced.”

Those concerns were ignored by his construction managers, said Mary Yanik, an attorney at the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice, according to the Guardian.

“There’s really crucial information here that the public needs to get to the bottom of what happened at Hard Rock,” Yanick told the outlet.

Fashion brand Loewe called out for outfit resembling concentration camp uniform

For $1,840, you too can offend victims of the Holocaust.

Spanish fashion brand Loewe is under fire for a recent capsule collection with one outfit that bears a striking resemblance to a concentration camp uniform.

Industry watchdog Diet Prada called out the Madrid-based luxury company on Instagram, noting a striped shirt and pants combo in the brand’s William De Morgan capsule collection was nearly identical to the outfits millions of Jews were forced to wear in death camps during World War II.

Loewe removed the product from Loewe.com after The Post reached out for comment and were referred to a new statement on the brand’s Instagram Story.

AMAZON PULLS ‘DADDY’S LITTLE SLUT’ T-SHIRT FOR CHILDREN AMID BACKLASH

“It was brought to our attention that one of our looks featured in a magazine and part of our Arts and Crafts ceramicist William De Morgan could be misconstrued as referring to one of the most odious moments in the history of mankind,” the statement read. “It was absolutely never our intention, and we apologize to anyone who might feel we were insensitive to sacred memories. The products featured have been removed from our commercial offering.”

Before the items were pulled from the site, Loewe described the “Stripe Workwear Jacket White/Black” as a “boxy workwear-inspired jacket with pockets, crafted in durable canvas cotton, featuring LOEWE Anagram-embossed leather patch on breast panel.” The price tag was $950.

However, the shirt is still being sold at fashion e-commerce site Ssense.

Diet Prada pointed out that the black-and-white ensemble has a pattern of stripes and “prominent chest patches” that appear to look like the death camp uniforms.

“Unable to see anything but concentration camp uniforms in this $1,840 ensemble from @loewe‘s William De Morgan capsule, a collection meant to ‘capture a freedom of imagination,’” the popular social media account posted to its 1.6 million followers. “There’s not actually much left to the imagination when the resulting look is so uncannily disturbing.”

Commenters seemed to agree with Diet Prada, posting notes of outrage.

“This just baffles me. How the f – – k does an entire team of people overlook such a similarity in design to the most horrifying event of the 20th century,” one Instagram user wrote. “This is deeply upsetting,” wrote another. “Wow this is one of the poorest taste I’ve seen in a while,” a third chimed in.

As the blog pointed out, Urban Outfitters and Zara have both been called out in the past for similar outfits. Zara pulled a pair of pajamas after outrage in 2014 and UO was selling a tapestry “eerily reminiscent” of Holocaust uniforms in 2015.

Loewe’s creative director, Jonathan Anderson, recently discussed the capsule collection that drew inspiration from British ceramicist and potter De Morgan with British Vogue, calling it similar to the “fantasy” of “Harry Potter.”

“It’s fantasy — but an odd type of fantasy,” he said. “There’s something which I think, in a weird way, has a sort of wizardry about it. Kind of like an early ‘Harry Potter.’ ”

Vogue France called it “the most artistic collection of the season.”

Emily Compagno visits military dogs at Fort Dix training center, becomes fake bait

Westlake Legal Group Emily-Puppy-FOX Emily Compagno visits military dogs at Fort Dix training center, becomes fake bait Julia Musto fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/us/military fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc ce8df223-4ed2-51e2-97b6-8072ae193ff0 article

This week Fox News contributor Emily Compagno took a trip to the dog kennel at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey to see how military working dogs are trained to protect U.S. troops every day.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Ed Henry, Pete Hegseth, and Rachel Campos-Duffy, Compagno said that she had a “great time” observing canine training but “also got pretty much the scare of [her] life” when she became the fake bait for one of the dogs.

“Those dogs are trained to the nth degree,” she told the “Friends: Weekend” hosts.

MILITARY POOCHES ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED FROM BIRTH TO SERVE ALONGSIDE TROOPS

“It’s also so exciting and it’s incredible to see and witness the bond between those dogs and their handlers, to hear the reverence these soldiers have for their fellow soldiers, for how honorable the entire process is, of course,” said Compagno.

While on the base, Compagno spoke with some of the sergeants who said that their main mission is “law enforcement and security of the base.”

“Our dogs that are trained as explosive, narcotic, and patrol detector jobs,” one soldier said. “Anybody who is committing offenses against the base, bringing contraband onto the base, we’ll be there to enhance the base’s security.”

Most dogs trained to serve in the U.S. military are Belgian Malinois and German and Dutch shepherds, according to the nonprofit U.S. War Dogs Association. These breeds are selected “because they are very aggressive, smart, loyal and athletic.”

A Belgian Malinois accompanied U.S. Navy SEALs on the 2011 raid that killed Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden. Another was “slightly wounded” in the mission to take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The vast majority of military working dogs are trained with the 341st Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The dogs first go through 60 days of detection training and 60 days of patrol training. Following that, they go through a certification process and then are released to their duty station.

The base members said that the dog teams are always training to better themselves.

“The bond that you’re going to build with these dogs is essential to your success as a dog team,” another sergeant told Compagno.
