In Montana, A Liberian Refugee Mounts U.S. Senate Challenge

Westlake Legal Group  In Montana, A Liberian Refugee Mounts U.S. Senate Challenge

Wilmot Collins stands in the Helena City Commission chambers before a meeting. He moved to Montana in the early 1990s.

In the early 1990s, Wilmot Collins and his wife Maddie, escaped the Liberian Civil War. Broke and starving, they ended up in Helena, Mont.

“Why do you think we fled?” Collins asked. “We fled because we wanted a second chance.”

Soon after moving to their first home, a neighbor knocked on their door and alerted Collins to hateful graffiti outside his house.

“On my wall was ‘KKK, Go back to Africa,’ ” Collins said.

This wasn’t the first racist threat he’s received since his resettlement in the U.S. and Montana. But ironically this moment, nearly 25 years ago, was when he knew Montana would be his home. That’s because that same morning, a brigade of neighbors showed up to help them clean the graffiti.

“People always say, ‘Oh man, you know you’re in Montana, do you experience racism down there?’ ” Collins said. “I say, ‘Yeah, but how your community reacts to what happens will determine whether you belong or not.’ “

Instead of moving, he and Maddie stayed and built themselves a new life. Collins started working as a janitor at a school, then became a substitute teacher, and eventually a social worker. On the side, he coached soccer and served on the United Way and other local boards. His wife is a nurse at the local VA hospital. They raised two kids in Helena.

His son, who went on to study political science at the University of Montana, urged him to consider entering politics not long after President Trump took office in 2017.

Collins’ rise was fast. Later that year, he narrowly defeated Helena’s entrenched mayor (the race is technically nonpartisan, but both men are Democrats), making history by becoming the capital city’s first black mayor since its incorporation. Now he has his eyes on a higher position: a U.S. Senate seat that Democrats lost in 2014, and had previously held for nearly a century.

Between his job, his family and mayoral duties, Collins squeezes in every minute he can to campaign.

For Collins, the strategy is to meet as many people as possible and make connections on common issues such as trade and student loan debt. His scope isn’t just Democratic-leaning towns like Helena, but also rural, conservative-leaning farming towns.

“The last thing I want to dwell on is race. It’s divisive, and I don’t want to deal with that,” Collins said.

But he’s had to. When Trump tweeted that four Democratic lawmakers of color should “go back to the countries they came from,” Collins’ possible opponent, Republican Sen. Steve Daines heartily backed the racist tweet with a pledge of support on his Twitter account.

Collins says the men showed their true colors.

“He’s trying to say because they’re black and brown, they need to go back to Africa, where I’m from,” Collins said. “But that’s wrong. I’m an American. I’ve served this country honorably.”

Staff for Daines did not make the senator available for an interview. In a statement, a spokesperson said Daines “looks forward to having a thoughtful discussion with Montanans on how to best protect our Montana way of life.”

While Wilmot Collins is considered a long shot, his campaign is not going unnoticed in an overwhelmingly white state that Trump won by more than 20 points.

Professor Tobin Miller Shearer runs the African American Studies program at the University of Montana, which boasts the third oldest such program at a public university in the country. Montana is also the least black state in the country, according to recent census figures.

“As a historian, I’m absolutely delighted, because this opens up a whole conversation about the history of race in Montana,” Shearer said.

He believes Collins’ run will force Montanans to confront — and discuss — what’s been a long and violent history of racism and KKK activity in the Northwest.

This largely white region has been a hotbed for extremism for more than a century. Hate group monitors such as the Montana Human Rights Network are reporting a recent spike in white nationalist sentiment and recruitment, particularly in rural areas since 2016.

The group’s co-director Rachel Carroll-Rivas says that Wilmot Collins’ candidacy is being met with excitement and anxiety.

“I think there’s a reason to be concerned for the safety of people of color, including immigrants right now in Montana, in the Pacific Northwest and across the U.S., because of the vitriolic scapegoating of immigrants and brown folks by activists and elected officials,” Carroll-Rivas said.

She believes that Collins is doing precisely what he should to respond to hate: being out in the open, surrounded by friends.

At least in Helena, that’s easy. Collins appears to know just about everyone.

“I think it’s time that somebody steps up to the plate to bring some civility back. I think it’s time that somebody who wants to represent the whole of Montana steps up,” Collins said.

Chance The Rapper’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is One Big Name-Drop

In “The Late Late Show” bit that aired Tuesday night, the Grammy-winning musician spilled the beans to host James Corden on his friendships with former President Barack Obama and fellow rap stars Jay-Z and Kanye West.

Chance revealed how Obama and Jay-Z are a little hard to get hold of on the phone. He does have a direct line to West, however, but admitting to facing a “spiritual battle” when deciding to follow one of his whims.

Corden also served up Chance (who revealed he hates vegetables) a platter of veggies ― while Chance broke down the totally non-confrontational way he deals with receiving an unsatisfactory verse from a collaborator on a song.

Federal trade commission temporarily halts ‘misleading’ real-estate seminar endorsed by HGTV personalities

The Federal Trade Commission is attempting to shut down a Utah-based company that runs a real estate seminar — which has been endorsed by HGTV stars, including “Flip or Flop’s” Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead — that the group says is “misleading” and “bogus.”

On Friday, a federal court agreed to put a temporary restraining order against Zurixx, LLC, which, according to the FTC, “used deceptive promises of big profits to lure consumers into real estate seminars costing thousands of dollars.”

The complaint, which was filed by the FTC and the Utah Division of Consumer Protection, says Zurixx would hold free events that were endorsed by the “Flip or Flop” stars, as well as Hilary Farr from HGTV’s “Love It or List It” and Peter Souhleris and Dave Seymour from A&E’s “Flipping Boston.” Once at the event, the presenters would then pitch the group’s three-day workshop that cost $1,997 and promised to teach customers how to “make substantial income from real estate.” At the pricey workshops, presenters encouraged attendees to open new credit cards and increase card limits, and also peddled products and services that could cost up to $41,297, according to the FTC.

“From start to finish, these defendants used the promise of easy money and in-depth information to lure consumers down a path that could cost them thousands of dollars and put them in serious debt,” said Andrew Smith, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “When a company tells consumers they have the secret to get rich with little work, we encourage consumers to take a hard look at what’s really being offered.”

The FTC alleges consumers could only get a refund from the company if they signed an agreement prohibiting them from “speaking with the FTC, state attorneys general, and other regulators; submitting complaints to the Better Business Bureau; or posting negative reviews about Zurixx.”

Zurixx told the Associated Press in a statement that the organization anticipates “a positive outcome as we work directly and openly with the agencies involved.” HGTV did not immediately respond to AP’s request for comment.

Second NBA Cares event canceled in China during Lakers-Nets preseason visit: report

Westlake Legal Group lebron-james Second NBA Cares event canceled in China during Lakers-Nets preseason visit: report fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/sports/nba/los-angeles-lakers fox-news/sports/nba/houston-rockets fox-news/sports/nba/brooklyn-nets fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/politics fox news fnc/sports fnc Dom Calicchio article 61cad9a8-6cd7-5591-89a8-6a6960f13e37

An NBA Cares event scheduled for Wednesday in Shanghai that was supposed to feature players from the Los Angeles Lakers has been canceled, according to reports.

The cancellation comes one day after a similar event featuring the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets was canceled.

The teams remain scheduled to play a pair of preseason games in China, planned for Thursday morning and Saturday morning, Eastern U.S. time, amid speculation that Chinese officials or possibly the NBA might postpone those events as well. At least one U.S. lawmaker, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has called on the league to pull out.

NBA-CHINA CONTROVERSY EXPOSED HOW DEPENDENT AMERICAN BASKETBALL IS ON BEIJING, FS1’S JASON WHITLOCK SAYS

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was heading to Shanghai on Wednesday in an effort to repair the league’s relationship with China, according to the Associated Press. He said he did not expect the Lakers-Nets games to be canceled.

“But if those are the consequences of us adhering to our values, I still feel it’s very, very important to adhere to those values,” Silver said.

Photos posted on social media showed Lakers stars — including LeBron James and Anthony Davis — outside a facility where the team held a practice that was off-limits to the media, according to reports.

NBA Cares is the charity arm of the 30-team league that supports numerous causes, such as education and disaster relief.

But the two teams’ goodwill visit to the country has been overshadowed by a controversy sparked by a now-deleted Twitter message posted by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who expressed support for pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong who have been opposing what they view as Chinese interference in the island territory’s autonomy.

The tweet was especially offensive in China because the Rockets were the team of Yao Ming, a Shanghai native who played in the NBA from 2002 to 2011 and is considered the sport’s greatest ambassador in his home country. Several Chinese companies immediately cut ties with the Rockets.

Team star James Harden, who was with the Rockets in Japan, in a separate trip from the Lakers-Nets visit in China, apologized Monday on behalf of the organization.

“We apologize. You know, we love China. We love playing there,” Harden said, according to ESPN. “For both of us individually, we go there once or twice a year. They show us the most important love.”

Hong Kong has been a special administrative region of China since 1997, when Britain relinquished control.

Morey’s tweet also placed the NBA in the position of having to choose between supporting the free-speech values of the United States and pursuing business in China, a communist nation that ranks as the world’s No. 2 economy.

Not long after the tweet appeared, Silver said at a news conference that the league was “apologetic” over the fallout, but was “not apologizing for Daryl exercising his freedom of speech.” Silver added that he “regrets” how so many Chinese people and NBA fans were upset by Morey’s message.

“Daryl Morey, as general manager of the Houston Rockets, enjoys that right as one of our employees,” Silver said, according to the Associated Press. “What I also tried to suggest is that I understand there are consequences from his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences.”

Nevertheless, the league faced bipartisan criticism for its initial response.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., blasted the league as “hypocrites,” saying its players “have no problem speaking out on politics & social issues in America. But they apologize to #China for a pro democracy tweet from an NBA team executive.”

“We’re better than this,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wrote. “Human rights shouldn’t be for sale & the NBA shouldn’t be assisting Chinese communist censorhip.

On Monday, presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wrote:

“China is trying to use its market power to silence free speech and criticism of its conduct. In response, the NBA chose its pocketbook over its principles – and our values. We should all be speaking out in support of those protesting for their rights.”

Other critics noted that normally outspoken figures in the NBA – such as Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, and star Lakers player LeBron James, have been largely silent on the controversy.

The NBA regular season is scheduled to begin Oct. 22

Marc Thiessen: Joe Biden is a hypocrite on Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093235542001_6093237749001-vs Marc Thiessen: Joe Biden is a hypocrite on Ukraine the washington post Marc Thiessen fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc article 0d62019b-3661-5113-a697-616d252cd746

Former Vice President Joe Biden has said that in holding up vital military assistance to Ukraine, President Trump “used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation, a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia … to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor.”

That’s rich. The aid in question is lethal military assistance that the Obama-Biden administration refused to give Ukraine.

In 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea and began arming separatists in eastern Ukraine with tanks, armored vehicles and rocket launchers, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko came to Washington to plead for weapons to defend his country. In an impassioned address to a joint session of Congress — with Biden sitting directly behind him — Poroshenko said his country appreciated the nonlethal assistance he was getting, but declared “one cannot win a war with blankets.”

PETER SCHWEIZER: BIDEN UKRAINE DEALINGS — 7 ESSENTIAL FACTS

The Obama-Biden administration was unmoved. The Wall Street Journal reported at the time that “President Barack Obama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine, despite a passionate appeal Thursday for help in fighting pro-Russian rebels by Ukraine’s president.” Why? The administration feared that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.

So what did the administration give him? Instead of RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), we provided MREs (meals ready to eat) — food rations. As one frustrated former Pentagon official put it at the time, “What kind of message does that send anyway? We are sending MREs while they are being invaded by an aggressor.”

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

Answer: a message of weakness.

When Trump took office, he delivered a message of strength. In December 2017, the new administration announced that the United States would send the lethal aid to Ukraine that Poroshenko requested and Obama and Biden refused — the sale of $47 million worth of Javelin antitank missiles. In May 2018, after Ukraine tested its new Javelin missiles, Poroshenko exulted on Twitter, “Finally this day has come!” and personally thanked Trump “for supporting Ukraine and adopting a decision to provide Javelin antitank missile systems.”

More from Opinion

For Biden to now attack Trump for a temporary delay in a new round of lethal military aid reeks of hypocrisy. It was on Biden’s watch that the United States refused to deliver military aid at all. Yet the same vice president who sat there impassively while Ukraine’s president begged for weapons now dares to cite the Russian threat to Ukraine in castigating Trump? Talk about chutzpah.

And since Biden raised the Russian threat, let’s recall that the Obama-Biden administration bears much responsibility for the annexation of Crimea that necessitated the delivery of lethal aid to Ukraine in the first place. Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine came in the aftermath of the Obama-Biden administration’s failure to enforce its red line against Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons by Syria. In March 2013, Biden declared, “Because we recognize the great danger Assad’s chemical and biological arsenals pose to Israel and the United States, to the whole world, we’ve set a clear red line against the use or the transfer of those weapons.”

Assad responded by using chemical weapons on innocent civilians not once, but 16 times. And yet Obama and Biden did nothing, failing to carry out even “unbelievably small” military strikes — a decision Biden publicly defended. “We can easily say we should have bombed and gone in and taken out their air defense system,” Biden said, “Well, you know, big nations can’t bluff.”

CLICK HERE FOR THE ALL-NEW FOXBUSINESS.COM

Bluff is what Obama and Biden did — and Assad called their bluff. Not only that, they turned to Russia for a face-saving way out, letting Russian President Vladimir Putin broker a phony deal to have Syria disarm. It was one of the most embarrassing foreign policy debacles of the post-Cold War era. So it should come as no surprise that, when Obama threatened to impose costs on Putin if he invaded Ukraine, the Kremlin called his bluff, too. Putin knew Obama and Biden did not have the will to stand up to him in Ukraine. And he was proved right when they refused to give Ukraine lethal aid for fear of further provoking him.

None of this excuses Trump’s delaying a new round of lethal military aid to Ukraine. But if this military assistance was as vital to countering the Russian threat as Biden says, then it’s fair to ask: Why didn’t the United States provide it when Biden was the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine?

Late Night Hosts Find The Funny In Latest Trump Impeachment Inquiry Twist

Westlake Legal Group 5d9d8043200000d4064fe0ec Late Night Hosts Find The Funny In Latest Trump Impeachment Inquiry Twist

The House impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump continues to provide late night comedians plenty to play with.

Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and James Corden on Tuesday all riffed on the State Department’s blocking of Gordon Sondland (the U.S. ambassador to the European Union) from giving a deposition before a House panel earlier in the day and the eight-page letter that the White House sent to House leaders saying it will not cooperate with the inquiry.

“Say what you will, Trump is really hitting his stride when it comes to obstructing justice,” joked “The Late Late Show” host Corden, likening it to “when you’re a kid and your brother goes from ‘I didn’t do anything wrong’ and then suddenly he’s like ‘please don’t tell mom.’”

Lara Trump on possible Hillary Clinton presidential run: ‘Let’s do that’

Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump welcomed a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run in 2020, saying she was confident the president would defeat Clinton again.

“First of all, I just want to double down on the president and say if Hillary Clinton would like round two with Donald Trump, please let’s do that,” the wife of the president’s son Eric Trump said Tuesday night on “Hannity.”

“I would love to see a round two between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because I think we all remember, Sean, not too long ago, all the media said that she was going to be the next president. We see Donald Trump in the White House now.”

“I would love to see a round two between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.”

— Lara trump, Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser

MICHAEL GOODWIN: HILLARY CLINTON NEEDS TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN — OR GET OVER IT ALREADY

Clinton had sparked speculation about a possible run after she responded a tweet by the president Monday.

“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president wrote. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”

“Don’t tempt me. Do your job,” Clinton tweeted back.

Lara Trump said if Clinton ran in 2020, the president would win easily.

“It would be so easy to win but I think it’s going to be easy to win with any of these candidates,” she said. “You’re talking about Elizabeth Warren now, who does look to be, I guess, the best hope they have. Maybe that’s why they’re trying to bring Hillary back out because they see how bad all these candidates really are.”

“Donald Trump is going to win because the American people feel the results of the Trump presidency every single day.”

— Lara Trump, Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser

Trump declared that even as Democrats push impeachment, her father-in-law the president would ultimately prevail.
