Ken Cuccinelli: Statue Of Liberty Poem About ‘People Coming From Europe’

Westlake Legal Group 5d535fa3220000d002f53c69 Ken Cuccinelli: Statue Of Liberty Poem About ‘People Coming From Europe’

Ken Cuccinelli, the Trump administration’s acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, reinforced his controversial interpretation of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty ― this time giving it a racist twist. 

CNN journalist Erin Burnett was asking Cuccinelli about his earlier interview with NPR, in which he reworded the Emma Lazarus poem “The New Colossus,” saying: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet, and who will not become a public charge.” 

“‘Wretched,’ ‘poor,’ refuse’ – right? That’s what the poem says America is supposed to stand for. So what do you think America stands for?” Burnett asked Cuccinelli.

“Well, of course, that poem was referring back to people coming from Europe,” Cucinelli answered, “where they had class-based societies, where people were considered wretched if they weren’t in the right class … And it was written one year after the first federal public charge rule was written.” 

It is unclear why Cucinelli felt the need to specify the group of immigrants Lazarus was referring to. The poem itself describes the Statue of Liberty by saying, “From her beacon-hand/ Glows world-wide welcome.” USCIS did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment. 

Cuccinelli was on NPR defending the Trump administration’s controversial new rule effectively barring legal immigrants who are on government benefits, like food stamps and Medicaid, from becoming permanent residents. 

After his remarks on NPR, HuffPost spoke to Annie Polland, a historian and director of the organization that has the original manuscript of Lazarus’ poem.  

“To see how something so expressive of the country’s greatest ideals, to see how it could be so contorted or distorted, is really, I think, dismay is the only word,” said Polland, the executive director of the American Jewish Historical Society in New York, adding that she was “not surprised because we’ve been hearing these sentiments more than we have in the past.”

Lazarus originally wrote the poem in 1883 and it was added to the statue in 1903. Since then, the poem has become a symbol of the United States’ history of immigration.  

Polland argued that the poem “is as much about who America or what America should be, as it is about immigrants,” adding that “in many ways, America defines itself by how it’s welcoming immigrants.”

Dayton gunman shot 26 people in 32 seconds before police killed him, officials say

The gunman who carried out the Aug. 4 mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio spent nearly two hours in the area before he opened fire, killing nine people and injuring 17 more, according to newly released surveillance footage pieced together from several local businesses.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Tuesday that 24-year-old Connor Betts shot 26 people in the span of 32 seconds before responding officers fatally shot him outside of Blind Bob’s bar. Previously, police and hospital officials said at least 14 injured people suffered gunshots wounds. Overall, 15 of the people shot that night were female and 11 were male.

PROSECUTORS SAY FRIEND OF OHIO SHOOTER BOUGH HIM ARMOR, FIREARM

Betts was first caught on camera in the area at 11:04 p.m. when he parked his car and walked to Blind Bob’s with his sister Megan and another companion.

Police said the footage “strongly suggests that his [the siblings’] companion,” who was wounded in the rampage, “had no idea what he [Betts] was gonna do nor did he have any knowledge of the weapons that were in the trunk of that vehicle.”

All three of them went to Blind Bob’s, where they remained until 12:13 a.m. Betts left the bar alone and went across the street to another bar, Ned Peppers, staying there until 12:42 a.m.

Betts, dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, then left Ned Peppers and headed back in the direction of the parking lot, crossing paths with a police cruiser that was in the area, Lt. Paul Saunders said during a press conference.

Biehl said there is a “strong probability” that Betts went into Ned Peppers to case it but added, “he was very familiar with the Oregon district so this was not a place that he did not know.”

“This was a plan well before he got to the Oregon district,” Biehl said noting that its unlikely that anything happened inside of the bars that made the shooter decide to carry out his rampage.

Police say the shooter went back to his car and spent eight minutes changing into a long sleeve dark hoodie and “gathering content out of the trunk of that vehicle,” which included a “very heavy backpack.”

Authorities say Betts spent about nine minutes making his way from the parking lot towards the strip of bars again, through an alley connecting the two and used that time to load his AR-15 style gun before he emerged from behind the alley and opened fire near Blind Bob’s at 1:04 a.m.

Police confirmed that the shooter’s sister, Megan Betts, was one of the first three fatalities, but Biehl conceded that law enforcement officials had “radically different views” about whether the shooter intentionally killed his sister first.

Biehl revealed that phone evidence from that night showed that the shooter texted back and forth with his sister and their companion as soon as seven minutes before the shooting began and that the companion told Betts that they were at a taco stand near Blind Bob’s.

Biehl said Betts “did know where they were at because they were communicating during this hour back and forth.”

Biehl also said that Betts and his sister spoke on the phone before the shooting, although it is unclear the content of the phone call. Despite knowing their whereabouts, police said they could not conclusively say whether the shooter could see his sister and her companion from his vantage point across from Blind Bob’s, as they may have been obscured by the decor of the bar, which included umbrellas on the patio.

“By our best resources that we have at our fingertips, we believe that the shooting started at approximately 1:05 and 35 seconds. We believe it ended at 1:06 and 7 seconds; that’s 32 seconds” Saunders said.

Biehl’s said that although Betts was wearing body armor throughout the shooting, the armor was “vulnerable,” allowing responding officers to shoot and kill him.

“He had (ballistic) plates but that’s all,” Biehl’s said.

Although authorities could not confirm the shooter’s motive, Biehl’s said Betts had a “history of obsession with violence and violence ideations, the discussion of interests in mass shootings and the expression of desire to carry out a mass shooting.”

Biehl’s said Betts was in the Oregon District the night before the shooting, adding you “certainly have to consider there was some thought being given to it at that time.”

Police found some evidence of drug paraphernalia “on his person” but whether Betts was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs remains uncertain pending toxicology reports, Biehl said.

Authorities have said there was nothing in Betts’ background to prevent him from buying the gun, stating that the weapon was purchased online from a dealer in Texas and shipped to another firearms dealer in the Dayton area.

With modestly successful limbs almost from place to place;

Here at our waterlogged, dusky walls might sit

An average woman with a candle, whose flicker

Is the detained weather, and they called her

A relation of early departures. From her sign-appendage

Shows nationwide greeting; her bored eyes petition

The gas-couched inlet that one locality abuts.

“Stay, old areas, your purported process!” she says

With a quiet mouth. “Lend me your jet-lagged, your moneyed,

Your comfortable bunches opting to respire idly,

The pleasant fluff of your popular beachfront.

Direct them, home-owning, breeze-blown to us,

We hide the wick near the iron gate!”

Chris Plante: Tom Steyer may make next Dem debate, but appears ‘antithetical’ to party doctrine

Billionaire Tom Steyer hopes to make September’s Democratic presidential debates, but his history is antithetical to current party orthodoxy, according to Chris Plante.

Steyer, a New York native who founded San Francisco hedge fund Farallon Capital, invested in two major industries many Democratic leaders find problematic, the conservative radio host claimed Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This is all such a horrible cable television show at this point,” he said of the Democrats’ 2020 field. “Tom Steyer is a San Francisco billionaire hedge fund manager who made piles of money on coal and coal mines, and on private prisons. I think this guy is supposed to be the antithesis of everything today’s Democratic Party represents.”

BILLIONAIRE TOM STEYER, AT FIRST CAMPAIGN EVENT, SAYS HE DOESN’T SEE HIMSELF AS RICH

Plante said Steyer has spent large sums in support of his own candidacy over the past several months — including millions on Facebook and television ads and tens of millions on his “Need to Impeach” initiative.

More from Media

The commentator said Steyer has reportedly met the 130,000-donor threshold to make the next debates, but may yet need to reach the polling percentage requirement.

“Isn’t he everything that the Democrats hate?” he asked.

“He should really just buy Gallup,” he added.

In recent remarks played by host Mark Steyn, Steyer demanded that President Trump be impeached and called him a racist.

“For two years, we’ve been saying ‘impeach this man’ and get him out of office, because he’s broken the law, because he’s met the criteria for impeachment and because he’s a racist. That’s always been in the background. You never see one cockroach with Donald Trump — all the cockroaches are there,” Steyer said.

El Al flight attendant dies months after contracting measles: reports

Westlake Legal Group El-AL- El Al flight attendant dies months after contracting measles: reports Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/travel/general/airlines fox news fnc/health fnc article 090878d1-f6a7-51bf-9357-d2611017016f

An El AL flight attendant, who was hospitalized in April after contracting measles, has died, according to Israeli media reports.

Rotem Amitai, A mother of three, reportedly passed away at a hospital in Israel early Tuesday after slipping into a coma and suffering brain damage.

Amitai is thought to have contracted measles on a flight from New York in late March, The Times of Israel reported, adding that she was diagnosed with meningoencephalitis — a complication that is similar to having both meningitis, which is inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, and encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, according to Mayo Clinic.

“Rotem was a wonderful woman and a devoted mother,” her family said in a statement.

Amitai was working on board El AL Flight 002 from Kennedy International Airport to Tel Aviv on March 26, and that’s where the measles exposure is thought to have occurred, according to The Times of Israel, which added that blood tests revealed that the 43-year-old had only been vaccinated with one shot against measles instead of the two recommended for her age group.

WITH MOST CASES CENTERING ON NEW YORK CITY, US MEASLES COUNT NEARS 1,000 TOPPLING RECORDS

El Al did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment but Ynet reported the airline said in a statement, “El Al bows its head in grief in light of the death of one of our aircrew members.”

“After the incident, the company acted to immediately vaccine all its aircrews,” the airline added.

The statement went on to say, “The company will continue to act on the issue in accordance with Ministry of Health guidelines. We send our condolences to the family and will continue to support them.”

Israel has seen an outbreak of measles in the past year, recording more than 4,000 cases between July 2018 and last month, The Times of Israel reported citing the ministry.

The newspaper added that infections have mostly centered on the country’s ultra-Orthodox community, where vaccination rates are typically lower than in the rest of the population.

America is also dealing with a measles outbreak, with the number of cases reported this year the highest in nearly three decades, U.S. health officials announced in late May.

CDC: RECORD MEASLES OUTBREAK FUELED BY ANTI-VACCINATION PROPAGANDA

The latest spate of illnesses is scattered across 26 states, but most are in New York City.

The city’s surge, which began last October, is already the largest local measles outbreak in the U.S. in nearly 30 years.

Overall vaccination rates have remained fairly high, but outbreaks have been happening in communities where parents have refused recommended shots, U.S. health officials said. Often, those parents express fears, disputed by scientists, that the vaccinations themselves raise other health risks, like autism.

Rep. Crenshaw signed $250G book deal before joining Congress, report shows

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw signed a six-figure book deal with Hachette Book Group before becoming a member of Congress, according to a financial report filed this week.

The onetime Navy SEAL, 35, claimed a $250,000 book deal with Hachette as earned income in 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report amendment filed with the Clerk of the House of Representatives on Monday.

Crenshaw’s office confirmed to Fox News that he signed a book deal before joining the Legislature, and that the yet-to-be-titled book will explore mental toughness and America’s outrage culture. It is slated for publication next April.

While acting members of the House of Representatives “may not receive an advance payment on copyright royalties,” according to House ethics rules, Crenshaw would have been permitted to take a book advance before becoming a member of Congress.

REP. CRENSHAW SLAMS AOC, DEMOCRATS ON BORDER CRACKDOWN: ‘THEY DON’T WANT SOLUTIONS’

Crenshaw graduated from Tufts University in Massachusetts in 2006. He then went through SEAL training in Coronado, Calif., after having been commissioned as an officer during Navy ROTC in college.

His first deployment was to Fallujah, Iraq, with SEAL Team 3. Crenshaw would deploy overseas five times throughout his career.

In 2012, he was injured and blinded in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device (IED) went off. Crenshaw lost his right eye, and now has a glass eye and wears an eye patch.

HEGSETH, REP. CRENSHAW SLAM ANTHEM PROTESTS BY U.S. FENCER: ‘DELUSIONAL’ IF YOU THINK THAT’S SACRIFICE

After his injury, Crenshaw deployed twice before medically retiring from the military as a lieutenant commander in 2016, having served 10 years with the SEAL teams. He was awarded a Purple Heart, two Bronze Stars and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.

After attending the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and earning a master’s degree in public administration, Crenshaw decided to run for public office and was elected to serve in Congress from Texas’ 2nd District in November 2018. He took office in January of this year.

Crenshaw and his now-famous eye patch were at the core of a “Saturday Night Live” bit in November 2018.

PETE DAVIDSON MOCKS REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE, FORMER NAVY SEAL WHO LOST AN EYE IN AFGHANISTAN

Comedian Pete Davidson took a jab at then-candidate Crenshaw during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, saying at the time, “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever. Whatever.”

The clip went viral and Davidson was heavily criticized for the joke. Crenshaw later appeared on the show.

Davidson apologized to Crenshaw, and the former frogman was also able to take a few jabs at the comedian during their segment.

“I made a joke about Lt. Cmdr. Dan Crenshaw, and on behalf of the show and myself, I apologize,” Davidson said. “I mean this from the bottom of my heart. It was a poor choice of words. The man is a war hero and he deserves all the respect in the world.”

Their segment has nearly 10 million views on YouTube.

“But seriously, there’s a lot of lessons to learn here,” Crenshaw said on “SNL.” “Americans can forgive one another. We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other.”

Houston Chronicle Ed Board Calls On Beto O’Rourke To Drop Out Of 2020 Race | The newspaper instead wants the Democratic presidential candidate to “come back to Texas to run for senator.

Beto’s ego got the better of him, and likely largely due to a bunch of fucking opportunists who swarmed him and started talking in his ear about a bid because they thought they could ride his coat-tails as some Obama 2.0.

I’d feel bad for him that he fell for the bullshit of people like that (assuming that was even the case), but in the end he made the foolish choice himself.

Politicians from Texas just never learn that what plays well in Texas doesn’t play well across the country. Now, rather than potentially turning around to have a successful run in Texas, Beto likely shit on his political future. Texans are pissed at him for abandoning a Senate run and I imagine many don’t trust him anymore, because he showed he was more interested in catapulting his own career than serving his constituents.

Doesn’t help that a lot of the the veneer wore off and some of his less than progressive sticking points started to show after that race against Cruz.

California man arrested on suspicion of running over, killing peacocks: police

A California man has been arrested on suspicion of deliberately running over and killing two wild peacocks in northwest Los Angeles last month, police said.

Floyd Belton, 61, turned himself in on Tuesday and is facing two counts of animal cruelty, KABC-TV reported, citing the L.A. County sheriff’s Lost Hills station as its source.

John Delaney: Fellow 2020 Dems risking ‘political suicide’ by failing to offer ‘real solutions’

Many of the Democratic presidential candidates are campaigning on initiatives and promises that could hurt them in a general election, according to former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md.

During an interview on “The Story” Tuesday, Delaney claimed President Trump can only be defeated by a Democrat who appeals to the political center and doesn’t offer very liberal ideas many voters would find distasteful.”

“To beat the president, we have to put up someone who is actually running on real solutions — someone who can actually capture the center,” Delaney told host Martha MacCallum. “A bunch of the leading candidates for president are running on things that not even a majority of the Democrats in Congress would vote for. This is political suicide, what some of these folks are talking about.”

JOHN DELANEY REPEATEDLY QUESTIONED OVER REFUSAL TO LABEL TRUMP A ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ AT IOWA STATE FAIR

Delaney also dismissed a demand from progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to “sashay away,” and bow out of the presidential race.

“The Democratic Party is going to come around to it,” the former lawmaker claimed.

More from media

“To me, the only poll that matters is the Iowa caucuses.”

On Friday, Delaney was confronted by several people at the Iowa State Fair who questioned why he has not labeled Trump a white supremacist like some of his fellow 2020 contenders.

“Why do you stop short of calling him [Trump] a white supremacist?” Delaney was asked.

Delaney’s questioner went on to ask what the difference was between saying Trump supported white supremacists and using that label to describe the president.
