Trump slammed by lawmakers after he called impeachment inquiry a ‘lynching’

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Trump slammed by lawmakers after he called impeachment inquiry a 'lynching'

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has called President Donald Trump’s public call for China to investigate Joe Biden and his son “stupid.” Buzz60

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump compared the impeachment inquiry against him to “a lynching” on Tuesday, drawing condemnation for comparing a congressional process to vigilante murders aimed mostly at black Americans.

“All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” Trump tweeted.

African-American lawmakers took particular offense at the post.

“What the hell is wrong with you?” tweeted Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill. “Do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched, since the inception of this country, by people who look like you. Delete this tweet.”

Trump has attacked House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment probe as political. But Tuesday was the first time he used the term “lynching.”

In general, a lynching is the hanging of an accused person without benefit of a trial – a fate often visited on black Americans in the pre-civil rights era.

The NAACP reports that, between 1882 and 1968, there were 4,743 lynchings in the United States, and, of these, “3,446 were black.”

In the decades following the Civil War, said the NAACP history, “lynchings were becoming a popular way of resolving some of the anger that whites had in relation to the free blacks.”

Impeachment inquiry: Diplomat who called Trump Ukraine policy ‘crazy’ to testify in impeachment probe

Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., who had the tweet read to him during an interview on CNN said: “That is one word no president ought to apply to himself. You know, I’ve studied presidential history quite a bit, and I don’t know if we’ve ever seen anything quite like this.”

Historian Kevin Kruse wrote on Twitter that “comparing impeachment proceedings to a lynching is even more insulting when you’ve cozied up to the very forces of white supremacy that historically have used lynching as a tool to terrorize racial minorities.”

House Democrats are investigating Trump for impeachment over a whistleblower complaint that accused Trump of asking a foreign country – Ukraine – to investigate one of his domestic political opponents, former Vice President Joe Biden.

As part of a series of familiar-looking tweets decrying the investigation as political, Trump also made a threat against future Democratic presidents.

“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump said.

The tweet came a day after Trump complained that Republicans have not been aggressive enough in defending him.

“Republicans have to get tougher and fight,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting Monday. “We have some that are great fighters, but they have to get tougher and fight because the Democrats are trying to hurt the Republican Party for the (2020) election.”

Stop fearmongering about ‘Medicare for All.’ Most families would pay less for better care. The case for Medicare for All is simple. It would cover everyone, period. Done right, it would lower costs. And it would ease paperwork and confusion.

This is what I don’t understand. Even if foreign taxes are higher than ours, they don’t have to pay premiums, deductibles, or anything like that. When I looked a while ago, it was a net savings for me when comparing the health insurance I had against the tax burden of other countries.

And it’s just always there, income or not.

“I don’t want to pay for everyone else!” You already do. You’re paying for everyone at your company.

“But my choice!” Your company probably uses a single company with 2 or 3 plans that are super expensive and if you don’t pick any of them, you’re going bankrupt from medical bills. What choice are you talking about? You’re going to represent yourself? The cost is prohibitive. You have no bargaining power compared to a giant company.

Former President Jimmy Carter suffers pelvic fracture after falling in Georgia home

Westlake Legal Group c0409954-c162-42eb-89a9-8506d1894fe1-USP_News-_Habitat_for_Humanity.1 Former President Jimmy Carter suffers pelvic fracture after falling in Georgia home

Former President Jimmy Carter suffered a minor pelvic fracture Monday after a fall at his home in Plains, Georgia.

Carter was taken to the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia, for “observation and treatment,” according to the Carter Center, the 39th president’s human rights advocacy organization.

“He is in good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home,” the organization wrote in a tweet Tuesday.

The incident is the latest in a string of falls for Carter, who at 95 is the oldest living former president. After each incident, Carter has managed to return to some of his normal routines, such as teaching Sunday school and doing charity work. 

While on his way from church to lunch on Oct. 6, Carter fell and hit his forehead “on a sharp edge” at his home. The fall required 14 stitches and left him with a bruised left eye. Days after the fall, Carter was in Nashville, Tennessee, to assist in building homes for Habitat for Humanity

The former president broke his hip during a fall at his home in May just prior to a turkey hunting trip. He was released days later, saying at the time he planned to teach Sunday school that weekend. 

Carter served as president from 1977 to 1981 and was previously treated for cancer. 

In August 2015, he had a small lump removed from his liver. He later revealed that month that he had melanoma in his brain and liver. However, Carter announced in December 2015 after months of treatment that his scans showed no more signs of cancer.

Jason Chaffetz: Republicans ‘finally playing offense’ on impeachment and need to do more of it

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-22-at-8.36.52-AM Jason Chaffetz: Republicans 'finally playing offense' on impeachment and need to do more of it Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc ef1575a9-a412-5321-a256-cc966fc8fb2e article

Though the House Republicans’ effort to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was blocked, Jason Chaffetz said on Tuesday that he’s “glad that Republicans are finally playing offense and they need to do more of it.”

“They can do lots of other things against Schiff: they can file an ethics complaint, they can have a minority day of hearings, they can launch an investigation at leaking that is coming out of the intel community,” the former Utah congressman told “Fox & Friends.”

The Democratic-led House of Representatives voted Monday evening to table, or set aside, a resolution to censure Schiff for his handling of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

HOUSE VOTES TO SET ASIDE RESOLUTION CENSURING ADAM SCHIFF

The vote was 218 to 185 to table the resolution, which the Republican minority had introduced. All Democrats voted to table the censure resolution, with all Republicans voting against tabling it.

Independent Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party earlier this year, voted to table the resolution.

Colorado GOP Rep. Ken Buck, a member of the Freedom Caucus, told Fox News that although he voted against tabling the resolution, he would also oppose a straight, up-or-down vote on censure — and said the matter should have been referred to the Ethics Committee.

Buck added that the best outcome would be for Schiff to apologize, and the next-best outcome would be for a referral to the Ethics Committee. Buck said other Republicans agree that Schiff’s conduct did not meet the standard for censure.

Chaffetz said that, on a legal basis, what the House is doing is “just fundamentally wrong.”

“[Republican South Carolina Senator] Lindsey Graham over in Judiciary, he’s got subpoena power; he can get after some people,” Chaffetz said.

6 surprising numbers from college football coaches salaries report

Shortly after signing a bill that will allow college athletes in California to profit off their name, image and likeness beginning in 2023, Gov. Gavin Newsom said he believed it was important to talk about coaches.

During his time as a member of the University of California Board of Regents, Newsom explained, he had the opportunity to look over coaching contracts. He took note of the lofty salaries, bonus provisions and perks that they receive, such as country club memberships and access to private jets.

“Yeah, that’s enviable. But it’s also revelatory,” Newsom said on a conference call late last month. “Many of those same coaches are getting a percentage of ticket receipts. And meanwhile, again, these athletes – not only are they not fully integrated into the campus community, many of them don’t even have full scholarships.”

As the debate over college athlete compensation continues, coaching salaries continue to rise.

IS MALZAHN UNTOUCHABLE?::Massive buyout has big implications

DATABASE:How much each college football coach makes

OPINION:These are the seven worst deals for head coaches

Westlake Legal Group  6 surprising numbers from college football coaches salaries report

USA TODAY Sports has been analyzing salaries in major-college football since 2006, when only one FBS coach (Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops) made more than $3 million in total compensation, which translates to about $3.8 million in today’s dollars. This year, 31 coaches – nearly one-quarter of those at the 130 FBS schools – will clear that threshold.

Here are five other findings from this year’s data:

► The average total pay for the 122 FBS coaches for whom USA TODAY Sports could obtain compensation figures is $2.67 million, up 9% compared to last season. The increase is the largest in four years.

► Ten coaches are making north of $6 million. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney leads the way with $9.32 million in total compensation for 2019-20.

► For the first time, there is a league in which all of the coaches are making at least $3 million. It’s the 14-school Southeastern Conference, in which the average total pay is $4.95 million.

(The SEC was close to eclipsing that mark in 2015, when all 13 of its public-school coaches were making at least $3.25 million and 12 were above $3.6 million. However, Derek Mason’s pay from Vanderbilt had not yet become available from the school’s tax records, which later showed him at less than $3 million in each of his first three years at the school.)

► Thirty-three coaches would be owed eight-figure buyouts if they were fired without cause on Dec. 1, with 13 of those buyouts exceeding $20 million. (Some buyout clauses contain offset and mitigation language that could decrease the amount paid to the coach if he secures another job.)

► Arizona State coach Herm Edwards began the season eligible to receive up to $3.97 million in bonuses in 2019, which would have more than doubled his total base compensation ($2.38 million) for the year.    

Swinney and Alabama’s Nick Saban (nearly $8.9 million) each are making more this season than all of the head coaches in the 12-school Mid-American Conference, combined. The MAC’s combined total is just over $7.75 million.

Daniel Krauthammer: Here’s how Charles Krauthammer, my dad, would react to what is going on in US today

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096611215001_6096601614001-vs Daniel Krauthammer: Here's how Charles Krauthammer, my dad, would react to what is going on in US today fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/opinion fox-news/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc Daniel Krauthammer article 28c47c86-c9d6-5d97-bd42-95cac6b3cd87

Following the publication last year of my father’s posthumous book, “The Point of It All,” I spoke and was interviewed around the country to raise awareness for its release. I met and heard from thousands of people who followed my father’s commentary, and it was one question — above all others — that so many dearly wished they could know the answer to: “What would Charles say about this?” My father’s voice is missed, now more than ever.

In his public life, my father played a very special role. He was not just another talking head. He was a trusted guide to so many who read his columns and watched his commentary on television. As one colleague described it: “I often found myself hoping Charles would … write about some particular issue I was struggling with so that I’d know what to think about it.” The refrain I heard over and over again from his admirers was “I feel lost without him.”

On a deeply personal level, I know that feeling more intensely than anyone. But it was both moving and enlightening for me to learn that so many others feel similarly lost, adrift in a world that has become even less navigable in the time since he has gone, even less clear in its truths and falsehoods. Our politics have become more brutal, our discourse is more shrill and uncharitable.

CAL THOMAS: A TRIBUTE TO CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

Against this, my father represented something very different: an exemplar of a better kind of politics and a higher mode of discourse. That is why so many people — whether they agreed with his conclusions or not — relied on him to help them work out their own thoughts on what was happening in the world. They trusted him. He earned and retained that trust, I believe, by embodying several crucial tenets of free and open debate.

First, he was truthful. He said what he believed. He did not pull punches, alter his stance or mouth party tropes to please anyone or to mirror public opinion. There was a consistency to his positions. He wouldn’t shift them to follow changing trends. And it is remarkable to see — as perfectly illustrated in his book — how unswerving his reasoning remained on so many issues over the span of nearly four decades.

Second, my father was logical. He would show you exactly why and how he came to his conclusions, walking you through every step of reasoning and evidence to his closing point. He was determined to make the very best argument he could for the positions he thought were right, and to address the most compelling objections and counter-arguments that he found on the opposing side.

This intellectual rigor raised the quality of debate for everyone who engaged with his arguments. It helped guide others on not just what to think but how to think about important questions. Those who agreed with him better understood why they did. Those who disagreed would see a strong counterargument that forced them to defend and appreciate their own positions better. And those in between could see exactly which principles or assumptions or empirical evidence they found convincing, and which not.

Third, my father’s goal was to persuade. This may seem obvious, but it is not. Many in politics seek only to rally those who already agree with them, to discredit their opponents or simply to intimidate and overpower the other side. Leading others to change their mind of their own free will is no easy task.

In the end, the success and survival of democracy depend on choosing persuasion over brute force. My father did the hard work of democracy. He didn’t take the shortcuts. And that is the kind of commitment that democracy requires of its leaders and its citizens. It requires a democratic spirit. And it requires personal virtue. The founding fathers recognized this. “Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics,” wrote John Adams. And as Benjamin Franklin is reputed to have said after the Constitutional Convention, the American people had “a republic, if you can keep it.” Only republican virtue could keep this democratic republic alive.

My father was a man of such virtues. And his public greatness was inextricably linked with his personal goodness — as so many who knew him and witnessed his impact on our country have observed. The most important things about my father’s life were not political, and they were not public. I feel that as deeply as any truth I know. But he did not trumpet his personal virtues, or his personal life, in any significant way. His vocation — his calling — was in politics and the service he gave to our democracy. And he would want his memory to be based therein.

I believe we owe it to him, and to ourselves, to appreciate how fundamentally his democratic spirit derived from his humane soul. His belief in human liberty, in freedom of conscience and thought and in democratic pluralism was absolutely core to his being. But he could never have been such a strong, resonant and dearly missed voice in our politics if not for his honesty, his decency, his magnanimity, his bravery and his humanity.

It was put best, perhaps, by his friends and colleagues, who wrote: “He was … a giant, a man who not only defended our civilization but represented what’s best in it.” May we all take inspiration from his example.

Tasmanian tiger seen 80 years after it was thought to have gone extinct: report

Nearly 80 years after it was thought to have gone extinct, multiple witnesses have reported seeing a Tasmanian tiger.

According to a newly released document from Tasmania’s Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment, just this year there have been two sightings of the rare tiger, also known as a thylacine.

In July, a man claimed to have seen a Tasmanian tiger footprint in Sleeping Beauty mountain. One month later, a man reported that he believed “he saw a Tassie Tiger on his land 7 years ago.”

CAN SCIENCE BRING THE TASMANIAN TIGER BACK FROM EXTINCTION?

There were also multiple reported sightings in 2018, including one woman who believes she saw a Tasmanian tiger and her two cubs at Hartz Mountains in November.

Another couple from Western Australia reported that they had seen one of the tigers after it crossed a road near their car in February 2018.

“An animal walked out slowly onto the road. [Redacted] was driving and stopped the vehicle,” the report reads. “The animal walked from the right hand side of the road [redacted] (and [redacted] were heading south to Zeehan and Strahan) three quarters of the way across the gravel road, turned and looked at the vehicle a couple of times, and then walked back in the same ‘run’ it had come out of. It was in clear view for 12-15 seconds.

“The animal had a stiff and firm tail, that was thick at the base. It had stripes down it’s back. It was the size of a large Kelpie (bigger than a fox, smaller than a German Shepherd). The animal was calm and did not act scared at all. Both [redacted] and [redacted] are 100 [percent] certain that the animal they saw was a Thylacine.”

In total, there have been eight reported sightings of the Tasmanian tiger since 2016. News of the document’s existence was first reported by The Independent.

In 2017, a grainy and fleeting videotape reportedly showed Tasmanian tigers in their natural state: one walking slowly at a distance, one with its nose at the camera lens and another with a cub.

A study published in December 2017 suggested that thanks to advancements in DNA research, it may be possible to bring the thylacine, which first appeared 4 million years ago, back from extinction.

The Tasmanian tiger, a striped marsupial carnivore, was thought to have gone extinct after Benjamin, believed to be the last member of the species, died in captivity in the Hobart Zoo in September 1936.
