Woman enters China’s Forbidden City in luxury SUV, sparking outrage

A wealthy young woman was allowed to enter China’s famed Forbidden City in a luxury SUV, sparking online condemnation.

Lu Xiaobao fueled the outrage when she visited the empty home of the country’s emperors in Beijing on Monday and then posted photos of herself, a friend and the vehicle to social media, the BBC reported.

Officials at the Forbidden City, where vehicles are banned, said it was “deeply distressed and sincerely apologizes to the public,” the BBC reported.

“On Monday the Palace Museum is closed, so I hurried over, hid from the crowds, and went to play in the Forbidden City,” Lu told her Weibo followers.

BEIJING’S FORBIDDEN CITY WILL OPEN A NEW PORTION TO TOURISTS FOR THE FIRST TIME

Weibo users were stunned to see not only pictures of Lu and her friend at an empty site, but also her hulking black Mercedes-Benz, according to the BBC.

She later deleted the photos but not before they went viral.

Vehicles have been banned since 2013 to protect the cultural dignity of the vast site and its hundreds of historic buildings, according to the official Xinhua News Agency. The palace was home to the Qing and Ming emperors, who ruled China for nearly five centuries.

The photos played into public perceptions that wealthy people with connections enjoy special privileges in China.

Say what you want about the 2020 presidential race, it’s not what they used to call a “managerial election.” It’s not a contest to determine which branch of the establishment gets a turn of the wheel. This isn’t a Clinton-Dole ’96 kind of race where you’re pretty sure that no matter who wins, things aren’t really going to change very much.

This year, the one thing you can be certain of is that things could be very different when it’s over. The issues at stake are bigger than just the economy or even our foreign policy commitments. 2020 is about the broadest possible questions. What kind of country should we have? Who should live here? What will America look like 50 years from now?

There are a lot of possible answers to those questions, but leading Democrats appear to have settled on their position. America, they’re telling us should be a lot more like California.

ANDREW MCCARTHY: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL USHERS IN ERA OF HYPER-PARTISANSHIP THE FRAMERS FEARED

Listen to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg explain his vision for the country he is hoping to lead.

Michael Bloomberg, Democratic presidential candidate: I think that California can serve as a great example for the rest of this country. You have led the way on climate change, on fighting gun violence and on criminal justice, and you have as importantly, opened immigrants with open arms.

California is part of this country that is something the rest of the country looks up to.

Michael Bloomberg graduated from high school, almost 60 years ago. And at that time, a lot of what he just said was true. The rest of the country really did look up to California. Millions of Americans moved to California in search of a better life. It had the nation’s best public schools, you know, and world-class universities that essentially were free.

Graduates from those universities created Silicon Valley, among other things, the birthplace of the Digital Age. Compared to the rest of America, poverty in California then was low and opportunity was virtually unlimited.

The middle-class utopia of old has evaporated. The state is in crisis. Now, that’s obvious to everyone who lives here, certainly, but not to the people who run California.

The people who moved here in 1960 when Bloomberg graduated high school found their American dream.

But things have changed. Now, the children and grandchildren of those people are fleeing California.

We spent the last week here in Los Angeles for this show, and in some ways, it’s still a very beautiful place. The western parts of the city are some of the richest neighborhoods in the world. You’d want to live there. They’re immaculate, nice people.

But huge swaths of modern Los Angeles shock the conscience of anyone who drives by. Filth and disorder and clusters of homeless addicts. Tent cities continue for block after block. We have footage from one of our producers, Charlie Cougar, shot yesterday.

California has 12 percent of the world’s population, but it has a quarter of this country’s homeless. Adjusted for the cost of living, California has the highest poverty rate of any state in America. Nearly a quarter of its people are poor. Why?

Well, there are a lot of reasons, but here are some. The state has the most expensive housing in the continental United States. It has the most expensive gasoline, thanks to the taxes. The free world-class universities, those are long gone.

The University of California system has some of the highest in-state tuition rates in the country. As we chronicled last week in our series, “American Dystopia,” no city more accurately represents the implosion of California than San Francisco.

More from Opinion

It’s messed up, really messed up. That’s right. And so finally normal people are leaving California. For decades, the state led the nation in attracting migrants from other states. Now, the flow has reversed.

Every year, the number of people leaving California for other places exceeds the number of people moving in by more than a hundred thousand. If it weren’t for the constant stream of immigrants from abroad, California’s population would be falling and fast.

The middle-class utopia of old has evaporated. The state is in crisis. Now, that’s obvious to everyone who lives here, certainly, but not to the people who run California.

Instead of fixing the problems that are forcing people to flee, politicians here have spent the last few years on policies that are frivolous and counterproductive: Banning plastic straws, requiring background checks to buy shotgun shells, legalizing the intentional transmission of HIV.

Royal Caribbean claims grandfather knew window was open before toddler’s fatal fall

Royal Caribbean is seeking to dismiss a civil lawsuit filed by the family of Chloe Wiegand, claiming that her grandfather was “well aware” that the 11th-floor window was open before the Indiana toddler’s fatal fall.

Chloe, who was just 18-months old at the time of her death, had fallen from the Freedom of the Seas cruise liner on July 7, after slipping from her grandfather Salvatore Anello’s grasp while the cruise ship was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

GRANDFATHER WHO DROPPED TODDLER SPEAKS OUT FOLLOWING TRAGIC INCIDENT

An attorney for the Wiegand family said later that month that Anello had held Chloe up to what he believed to be a window, so she could bang on the glass.

Anello later claimed that his colorblindness may have been a contributing factor in the heartbreaking incident, leaving him unable to distinguish between the ship’s tinted windows and the open windows.

“I thought there was glass. I still say it to myself, it’s just, I kind of relive it all the time, and I just thought there was glass there. I don’t know what else to tell you,” he had previously said of the incident.

In December, the Wiegand family filed a lawsuit against Royal Caribbean, questioning why the window was open, and with no sufficient warning or signage.

This month, Royal Caribbean filed a motion with the courts in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Florida to dismiss that lawsuit, citing security camera footage that, they claim, shows Anello leaning out of the open window prior to Chloe’s death.

“This is not a case of an unknowing child approaching an open window and falling out because the window was defective or improperly positioned. Rather, this is a case about an adult man, Chloe’s step grandfather who, as surveillance footage unquestionably confirms: (1) walked up to a window he was aware was open; (2) leaned his upper body out the window for several seconds; (3) reached down and picked up Chloe; and (4) then held her by and out of the open window for thirty four seconds before he lost his grip and dropped Chloe out of the window,” the cruise line wrote in its motion to dismiss.

Royal Caribbean then referred to stills from its video footage, which they claim show Anello leaning from a window before picking Chloe up.

(U.S. District Court Southern District of Florida)

“When he arrives at the open window, and while Chloe is on the floor, Mr. Anello leans his upper-torso over the wooden railing and out of the window frame for approximately eight seconds,” the motion states, according to court documents.

“Because Mr. Anello had himself leaned out the window, he was well aware that the window is open.”

Michael Winkleman, an attorney for the Wiegands, has since called Royal Caribbean’s motion to dismiss “baseless.”

“It is clear that Royal Caribbean’s tactic is to blame Chloe’s grandfather rather than to accept that Royal Caribbean did not implement industry standards for toddler safety aboard its ships which ultimately led to Chloe’s tragic death,” Winkleman said, in part, in a statement shared with Fox 43.

Winkleman further claimed that Royal Caribbean was supplying “two deceptive views from its CCTV cameras.”

On Friday, attorneys for the family filed two further motions: one to strike the video footage, claiming the “the authenticity of the videos” had not been established; and another asking the court to make Royal Caribbean “to produce all video footage from all of the cameras,” of which Winkleman had said there were 13 in total.

Anello, meanwhile, has been charged with negligent homicide by Puerto Rico prosecutors in November. The charge carries a possible sentence of three years in prison.

In a statement shared with Fox News, Royal Caribbean had no further comment on its motion to dismiss.

“The death of Chloe Wiegand is undeniably a heartbreaking tragedy that has prompted a criminal prosecution of Chloe’s step-grandfather and a civil lawsuit brought by the Wiegand family attorneys. Our position in the matter is outlined in our Motion to Dismiss, which we were legally mandated to do in response to the civil complaint. The motion was filed in Federal Court in South Florida and is available to the public.”

Newt Gingrich: Trump impeachment will bring Pelosi and House Democrats condemnation by history

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6123012264001_6123016832001-vs Newt Gingrich: Trump impeachment will bring Pelosi and House Democrats condemnation by history Newt Gingrich fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc fa2c1b68-f2fd-5ee5-ab47-19f752c7fef8 article

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seemed giddy Wednesday as she announced the impeachment managers who would go to the Senate and attempt to prosecute a case against President Trump.

“He’s been impeached forever,” Pelosi said. “They can never erase that.”

However, Pelosi has it exactly backward. The Senate is going to refuse to convict President Trump. He will be exonerated, and she and the Democrats will be condemned by history.

PELOSI GLEEFULLY REMINDS TRUMP HE’S ‘IMPEACHED FOREVER’ DURING APPEARANCE ON BILL MAHER SHOW

The wide repudiation of the House Democratic betrayal of the Constitution is already beginning. As a historian myself, I think it’s important to document these reactions.

Consider historian Victor Davis Hanson’s analysis for the National Review, which was subtitled: “The new normal: Impeachment as a routine partisan tool, endless investigations, lying under oath with impunity, surveillance of political enemies, zero accountability.”

This is hardly an endorsement of Pelosi’s trivialization of the Constitution.

Abraham Lincoln scholar and highly respected historian Allen Guelzo asserted in The Wall Street Journal:

More from Opinion

[Charles] Pinckney and [Rufus] King might have been right in 1787. Americans prefer to choose their presidents with elections, and whenever impeachment is used in an attempt to nullify those choices, the results aren’t happy for anyone. That was true in 1868, and as both Andrew Johnson and his accusers might warn us, it remains true after a century and a half.”

Clearly, Pelosi did not know enough history to understand the warnings of Pinckney and King – or the sad end of the impeachment process against President Johnson.

When he was interviewed by Arun Rath, Harvard law professor and ACLU liberal Alan Dershowitz commented:

“[Alexander] Hamilton said that the greatest danger would be an impeachment that was based on who had the most votes in the House or removal based on who had the most votes in the Senate. And that’s precisely what we’re seeing happen, and the reason we’re seeing it is because of the use of open-ended criteria. Every controversial president since John Adams has been accused of abuse of power. And obstruction of Congress? That’s part of our system of checks and balances. … So I think the House of Representatives violated the Constitution when they impeached him on these two grounds.”

When testifying before by Congress, George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley warned:

“One can oppose President Trump’s policies or actions but still conclude that the current legal case for impeachment is not just woefully inadequate, but in some respects, dangerous, as the basis for the impeachment of an American president.”

So, from these perspectives, it is Pelosi – not Trump – who threatens to undermine the Constitution.

As former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy pointed out on Fox News, the Pelosi strategy is simply to “bruise President Trump with an unending stream of new impeachment allegations” in order to hurt his chances at reelection. McCarthy added that “after over 230 years, we have entered the era of partisan impeachment that the Framers feared. This is what it looks like.”

So McCarthy sees Pelosi behaving in exactly the unconstitutional and narrowly partisan manner the writers of the Constitution hoped to avoid. Again, it is Pelosi – not Trump – who is undermining the Constitution.

In addition, The New York Post’s editorial board noted that “Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff has been lying to the world for years in his nonstop campaign to smear President Trump.” Their judgment is that it is Schiff, D-Calif., – and not Trump – who has been a continuous serial liar.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board summarized the disaster of Pelosi’s bid to delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, saying her move “further exposes how Democrats have defined impeachment down. The House hearings blocked GOP witnesses and limited cross-examination. Despite selective leaks and a pro-impeachment media, they failed to move public opinion or persuade Republicans that Mr. Trump committed impeachable offenses.”

The Wall Street Journal editorial board went on to call Democrats’ actions “an abuse of the impeachment power” and reiterated that the things alleged in the articles of impeachment “aren’t close to impeachable.”

Madison Gesiotto in The Hill called this “the flimsiest and most partisan impeachment in history.”

In fact, as Pelosi played games with appointing impeachment managers, even senior Democrats began to lose patience. “The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California told reporters. “If it is serious and urgent, send them over. If it is not, do not send it over.”

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine suggested that the delays were wrong. As she put it, “doesn’t that suggest that the House did an incomplete job, then?”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., neatly summarized the Democratic House-created calamity in his floor statement Thursday, saying “it was a transparently partisan performance from beginning to end.”

McConnell went on to remind the country of the Founding Fathers’ fears of exactly the kind of narrow bitter partisanship Pelosi has been displaying.

Paraphrasing Alexander Hamilton, McConnell warned that “blinded by factionalism, the House of Representatives would abuse the power of impeachment to serve nakedly partisan goals rather than the long-term interests of the American people and their Republic.”

Finally, it’s clear the House Democrats have failed utterly to live up to the standard of prosecution set out by former Associate Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson (who served as chief prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials). Jackson cautioned the Conference of United States Attorneys on April 1, 1940:

“With the law books filled with a great assortment of crimes, a prosecutor stands a fair chance of finding at least a technical violation of some act on the part of almost anyone. In such a case, it is not a question of discovering the commission of a crime and then looking for the man who has committed it, it is a question of picking the man and then searching the law books, or putting investigators to work, to pin some offense on him. It is in this realm in which the prosecutor picks some person whom he dislikes or desires to embarrass or selects some group of unpopular persons and then looks for an offense, that the greatest danger of abuse of prosecuting power lies. It is here that law enforcement becomes personal, and the real crime becomes that of being unpopular with the predominant or governing group, being attached to the wrong political views, or being personally obnoxious to or in the way of the prosecutor himself.”

So no, Nancy. President Trump does not have to fear the judgment of history on this impeachment effort.

The judgment of history is going to be that a group of scoundrels in control of the U.S. House of Representatives placed partisan interests above the country, undermined the Constitution, weakened America in the world, and lied about the duly elected president of the United States.

This will become Pelosi’s moment of shame, and Trump’s moment of redemption.

Protesters mar Macron’s Paris theater date with wife in clashes with police

Angry anti-government protesters clashed with riot police at a Paris theater where French President Emmanuel Macron was attending a performance with his wife.

The police prevented about three dozen protesters from forcing their way into the theater Friday night, where Macron and his wife Brigitte were watching “La Mouche (The Fly),” the Telegraph reported.

It happened at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord near the Gare du Nord train terminus in northern Paris.

Video showed protesters, angry with Macron over his controversial pension reform agenda, chanting and yelling. Some entered a door of the theater as surprised police tried to hold them back, according to The Associated Press.

Macron and his wife sped off in a black car after being escorted to safety by security officers and police.

“We were at Paris 7 University for a people’s university, someone got a message that Macron was there, so we came to show that we’re here, that there’s a protest against pension reform, but not only that,” protester Arthur Knight told France 24 TV.

Earlier Friday, dozens of protesters blocked the entrance to the Louvre museum and forced the Paris landmark to close.

It was the first time since railway strikes and protests against the pension overhaul began 44 days ago that the Louvre and its Leonardo exhibit were fully shut down. About 30,000 people visit the museum every day.

Some videos on social media showed angry visitors booing at museum protesters to express their disappointment.

Some of those shut out of the Louvre were upset, while a few interviewed expressed solidarity with the strikers.

“I think it’s fine if they want to protest, but they shouldn’t block the plans of the people who have flown over here to see an exhibition of Leonardo,” said Ben Garrett of Dallas, Texas.

The early voting “circus” in New Hampshire will culminate in a nail-biting presidential primary and serve as a prelude to a contentious Democratic National Convention, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu predicted Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Jason Chaffetz, Sununu told viewers to “grab the popcorn” because it’s “going to be fun to watch.”

TRUMP EYEING RETURN TO NEW HAMPSHIRE ON EVE OF PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY

Sununu, a Republican, said Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will do well in the Democratic primary, but voters will reject Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren because of her “phoniness.”

He added that South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg will be trying to “find a way back into the mix as best he can,” while former Vice President Joe Biden will “do better than most people think.”

Sununu said he believes it will be a tight race in his “purple state” right down to the wire for the top four candidates.

However, he believes candidates “pushing this socialist, progressive agenda” are “placating and just saying whatever they think the crowd wants to hear.”

“At the end of the day,” Sununu said,”it’s going to really hurt them come November, which is why the president is going to win. Not just here in New Hampshire, but nationally, because they’re not going to be able to come back to this middle ground. No one is going to buy it.”

He also predicted “the bloodiest, knock-down, drag-out, WWE-style Democratic Convention” this summer, “where you’re going to get these social progressives who have no ability to compromise … trying to figure out how they wedged themselves against the more moderate candidates.”
