Long-shot GOP primary challengers to have their own debate this month – minus Trump

The three long-shot challengers taking on President Trump in the 2020 primaries are expected to face-off in their own debate later this month.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford and former Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois have been invited by Business Insider to participate in a debate Sept. 24.

Weld and Walsh’s campaign told Fox News they would be attending the debate. Sanford’s campaign was optimistic their candidate would also take the stage as long as a scheduling conflict was resolved.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENITAL CAMPAIGN

Business Insider told Fox News that the debate will be streamed live on Business Insider Today, their daily news show on Facebook Watch. They added that the president — who has derided his primary opponents as the “Three Stooges” — was invited to participate but has not responded.

“The political landscape has changed immeasurably since Donald Trump ran for and was elected president,” the organization said. “It’s vitally important to have an honest conversation about what it means to be a Republican in the era of Trump; our debate will be a valuable part of that discussion.”

An optimistic Weld told Fox News that “we already have our first televised debate signed up for and that’s going to add a new dimension to the race and I think it’s going to be harder and harder for the Trump forces to ignore the fact that 2020 is an election year.”

The announcement comes days after a move by the Republican parties in South Carolina and Nevada – two of the first four states that kick off the presidential primary and caucus calendar – to not hold their nominating contests next year. The Republican Party in Kansas also announced they won’t be holding their caucus.

Weld, who launched a primary challenge against Trump in April, argued on Tuesday that the scrapping of the contests is a sign that the president’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee are starting to worry about the multiple primary challenges.

“It indicates that there’s a nervousness in Washington D.C. and I think for good reason,” he told Fox News after holding a campaign event in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state of New Hampshire.

Walsh, a longtime conservative radio talk show host, was less diplomatic, saying on Twitter that Trump was acting “like a mob boss.”

“This is wrong. This is undemocratic. This is what a political party does when it serves a King,” he said.

Walsh also said “it’s disappointing. We should never take our cues from North Korea on shutting down elections and people’s chances to make their voices heard. South Carolina’s unique place as the first Republican primary in the South is being lost next year to accommodate the President’s electoral hopes.”

He added: “This means South Carolina Republicans in all corners of our state will lose voice they have had in the past in the national debate. It also means the very ideas debated in Republican circles will be weaker given the way ideas are made stronger through debate and examination. It’s all unnecessary, but certainly consistent with the President’s less than democratic style.”

But Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said that “these are decisions made entirely by state parties, and there are volumes of historical precedents to support them.”

And he emphasized that “President Trump will dominate and prevail in whatever contest is placed before him.”

Frying pan explosion at German village fest kills 1, injures 14

A giant frying pan filled with dumplings exploded at a food festival in western Germany, killing one person and injuring 14 others.

The injured included five–four burn victims and one heart attack victim–who were fighting for their life, German news media reported. The victim who died was severely burned and succumbed to her injuries Monday.

Witnesses said the victims were running around “like torches” at the Backesfest festival in the village of Freudenberg, the Independent reported.

Live coverage: The iPhone 11 is here. Everything we know about it

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Live coverage: The iPhone 11 is here. Everything we know about it

Using a few iPhone tips, you may not need the newest version because your phone still works well. USA TODAY

Happy iPhone day, tech fans!

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its iPhone 11 during an event held at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. Apple will roll out three models: a lower-priced iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

All three smartphones will be available for preorder on Friday, and ship September 20. The iPhone 11 starts at $699, the iPhone 11 Pro at $999, and the Pro Max at $1,099.

Apple also unveiled new versions of its iPad and Apple Watch. For the latest details on Apple’s event, scroll down for updates.

2:39 p.m.: Cook is back to wrap things up. Thanks for joining us!

2:34 p.m.: The iPhone 11 Pro will start at $999, with the Pro Max starting at $1,099. Preorders open at 5 a.m. PT on Friday, and ship on September 20. The iPhone 8 will remain at $499, while the XR will now be available at $599.

2:29 p.m.: Christopher Cohen, CTO of FiLMiC, is on stage discussing the new camera alongside the use of their app FiLMiC Pro, a cinematic video app. Apple clearly is aiming to sell this smartphone to professionals, which likely means a pretty high price tag.

2:24 p.m.: The iPhone Pro’s cameras all shoot 4K video, Schiller said. The app for videos will also boast enhanced editing features.

2:23 p.m.: A new feature coming to iPhone 11 Pro: the Deep Fusion image processing system. Schiller said it uses machine learning to create the best quality photo.

2:20 p.m.: The camera system features three parts: a wide camera, an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera. That’s a lot of cameras on one phone.

2:17 p.m.: Moving on to the battery, the iPhone 11 Pro’s battery lasts four hours longer then the XS. The Pro Max battery lasts five hours longer than XS Max. Both phones will also have a fast charger.

2:12 p.m.: It’s available with a 5.8-inch or a 6.5-inch super retina XDR display. It will boast the A13 Bionic chip.  

2:11 p.m.: Apple’s Phil Schiller said this is the first iPhone to carry the Pro name. It’s made of a surgical-grade stainless steel. It features finishes such as midnight green, space gray, silver and gold.

2:09 p.m.: Of course we weren’t getting only one iPhone. Cook returns to introduce the iPhone 11 Pro. It has three cameras with a “stunning new design.”

2:07 p.m.: The iPhone 11 will cost $699, but it’s only the beginning, said Cook.

2:05 p.m.: Now to the most important part: battery life. The iPhone 11 will have one hour longer battery life than the XR. 

2:03 p.m.: What better way to show how powerful a phone is than a graphics-rich mobile game, called Pascal’s Wager. The game looks really impressive for a smartphone.

2:00 p.m.: Time to talk chips! Specfically, the A13 chip for iPhone 11 which Apple says has the fastest CPU and GPU ever in a smartphone.

1:59 p.m.: On the front is a 12MP TrueDepth camera, and the option to capture 4K video and slow motion video. Apple has also dubbed the term “slofies,” short for slow motion selfies. Not enough facepalms for this. 

1:57 p.m.: The iPhone 11 supports 4K video at 60 frames per second and cinematic video stabilization. There’s also a quick video option where you can tap and hold in photo mode to capture a short clip.

1:55 p.m.: Moving on to Night Mode, the feature will enable automatically when taking pictures in very low-lit areas. The difference between a set of photos with Night Mode on and off is staggering. Videos look really sharp, too.

1:53 p.m.: When you take wide shots, you can tap on the screen to select between a standard photo or one with the ultra-wide view.

1:51 p.m.: The iPhone will have a 6.1-inch retina display and two cameras. The system boasts a 12MP wide camera and a second ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view.

1:49 p.m.: And it’s official: Apple unveils iPhone 11, in several colors including white, pink and space gray.

1:46 p.m.: Time for the star of the show: the iPhone. Cook recaps last year’s launch, noting the iPhone XR was the most popular smartphone in the world. Pretty sure the price tag under $1,000 had a lot to do with it.

1:44 p.m.: Apple is also planning to keep the Series 3 in the lineup, available for $199. Interesting note: no talk of sleep tracking, one of the device’s rumored features.

1:43 p.m.: Apple is adding a titanium model of Apple Watch, both in a silver and space black, as well as ceramic white. The company will also add new Nike and Hermes models. Series 5 GPS models will start at $399, and $499 for cellular models. They will be available September 20.

1:40 p.m.: Also coming to Series 5: a built-in compass. Along with seeing the compass on a watch face, you can also use it as a standalone app. The watch will add more safety features, including international emergency calling (with or without a phone).

1:39 p.m.: And just like that, Apple confirmed the watch will still maintain all-day battery life. It will also allow for tweaks such as reviewing a workout without worrying about tapping a screen to see data.

1:37 p.m.: Time to hear about what’s next for Apple Watch, formally called Series 5. It will include an always-on retina display. Interested to see what that means for battery life.

1:34 p.m.: Cook said Apple Watch is also having an impact on medical research. The device will be involved in a series of studies including a hearing study and another on women’s health. The company is rolling out an Apple Research app where users can enroll in the studies.

1:30 p.m.: After a quick breakdown on iPad, Cook moves on to Apple Watch. Cook said he hears every day about the “profound and personal impact” the device has had on users’ lives. Apple rolls a montage of people sharing the impact of the wearable.

1:27 p.m.: The latest version of iPadOS will introduce new features such as wider viewing angles, tweaks to Apple Pencil, and more. It will start at $329, and users can order it today.

1:23 p.m.: Cook moves on to iPad. We start with the popular 9.7-inch iPad. Apple is providing details on a new, lower-cost version of the iPad with a 10.2-inch display.

1:18 p.m.: Cook said the first shows for Apple TV+ will be available for November 1, with more shows coming every month. It will cost $4.99 per month. “All for the cost of a single movie rental,” said Cook, who adds anyone who buys an Apple device will get one year of Apple TV+ included for free.

1:14 p.m.: Cook is back to talk about Apple TV. He is introducing a series for Apple TV+ called See starring Jason Momoa (Aquaman). It takes place in the distant future where everyone on the planet can no longer see.

1:13 p.m.: Apple Arcade will launch September 19 in over 150 countries for $4.99 per month. Users can opt for a one-month free trial to check it out.

1:11 p.m.: Kelsey Hansen of Annapurna Interactive is up next, talking about a game called Sayonara Wild Hearts, described as a “playable music video.” It appears rhythm-based, where players complete actions to the beat, featuring neon-based graphics. Slightly reminiscent of the classic PlayStation series Rez.

1:08 p.m.: Capcom’s Peter Fabiano is up next to discuss an interesting underwater game where players explore the depths of the ocean, called Shinsekai Into The Depths. 

1:07 p.m.: Benjamin Kinney, brand manager with Konami, appears to talk about a version of Frogger. It’s like a classic version of the game but with new features such as power-ups to give your frog legs some extra hop. You can even dress the frog in different outfits.

1:05 p.m.: We kick off with Apple Arcade, a game subscription service on the App Store for mobile, desktop and TV. Over 100 games exclusive to the platform are expected to appear on the service, all available for a regular subscription price. New games will be included every month, and players can also find game guides, trailers and more information.

1:04 p.m.: Cook says Apple devices are designed “at the service of humanity,” combining hardware, software and services to help people do incredible things every day. Cook is also promising some “truly big announcements.” Well, we would hope so.

1:02 p.m.: The video revisits Apple’s tech history from its very first Mac to Apple TV and the iPhone and Apple Watch using a series of sleek graphics. “Give people wonderful tools and they’ll do wonderful things,” reads a statement at the end of the video before CEO Tim Cook steps out to greet the crowd. 

1:00 p.m.: Lights down. We begin with an Apple montage. Who’s ready to hear about some super expensive smartphones?

12:45 p.m. ET: Guests of Apple have started filing in at the company’s campus in Cupertino to take their seats and prepare to learn more about Apple’s next iPhone, Apple Watch, and other hardware.

Along with hardware, there’s a possibility Apple reveals more information on its streaming TV service. Its own Apple TV faces an uphill battle in the competitive connected TV market. According to eMarketer, 24.6 million Americans will use an Apple TV device this year, trailing Roku (86.2 million), Amazon Fire TV (64.6 million) and Google Chromecast (31.6 million).

Original story

The annual unveiling typically precedes the launch of the latest edition of its popular smartphone before the end of the month.

So what can we expect at this year’s event? Here’s what you need to know:

[embedded content]

Three new iPhones likely

According to a report last month by Bloomberg,  Apple will unveil two Pro models of the iPhone to succeed the iPhone XS and XS Max, as well as a budget model comparable to the iPhone XR.

The Pro model will feature a more advanced camera system with a third sensor, reported Bloomberg. The models will also boast improved screens and better water resistance.

What about 5G?

The higher-speed phone service is already available in certain parts of the U.S., thanks to Sprint, and even some compatible smartphones such as Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G. However, don’t expect Apple to roll out a 5G iPhone yet, said Forrester Research analyst Thomas Husson. “The focus will be on a differentiated photo and video experience and significantly more powerful smartphones.”

5G hype: Why you should wait until 2020

Don’t forget iOS 13

Introduced during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the updated operating system will also launch this month. Tuesday’s event will provide a glimpse of how the new iOS will work with the latest iPhones. More importantly, we’ll learn which older iPhones will still remain compatible with the new software.

New iPhone? No thanks: These older-model 5S owners don’t need or want one

What about Apple Watch Series 5?

The biggest and arguably most exciting rumor about Apple’s latest smartwatch is the long-awaited addition of sleep tracking. According to 9to5Mac, the watch will use multiple sensors to track data such as movement and heart rate, then plug the results into an app, potentially a new Sleep app.

New details on TV+

Apple could also reveal details on the timing and pricing of its TV subscription service. The service has already recruited big players from Hollywood, including Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.

'It's perplexing.' How did the Golden Ray ship capsize? Here's a look at possible answers

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'It's perplexing.' How did the Golden Ray ship capsize? Here's a look at possible answers

Coast Guard rescuers pulled four trapped men alive from a capsized cargo ship Monday, drilling into the hull’s steel plates to extract the crew members more than a day after their vessel overturned while leaving a Georgia port. (Sept. 10) AP, AP

The gleeful rescue team that pulled four trapped crewmen from a capsized cargo ship off the Georgia coast left behind more than 4,000 cars and one big question: Why did the Golden Ray capsize?

“Amazing,” said Capt. John Reed, commander of the Coast Guard Sector Charleston, after the last crewman was extricated from the hole drilled into a ship stretching the length of more than two football fields. “The best day of my career.”

Peter Goelz, former managing director of the National Transportation Safety Board, says he thinks the ship could be cleaned up and running again quickly.

Hurricane Dorian: Survivor films storm’s terrifying wrath in Bahamas as it pounds against his home

Goelz, who isn’t involved in the investigation, said he’s not sure when the cause of the mishap will be known. But there are not many possibilities to explore.

“It’s perplexing,” Goelz told USA TODAY. “How do you get enough water in there to essentially sink the ship so quickly?”

Goelz said there appears to be no massive rocks in the dredged channel that could have torn a hole in the hull. It could be that somehow the load of cars somehow shifted, but he said it would take a major change in weight distribution to topple the 656-foot ship.

The Golden Ray is a “RoRo” — a roll on, roll off ship designed with massive doors so cars and trucks can be driven on and off. Another possibility is that one of those doors simply wasn’t properly secured, Goelz said.

The NTSB is providing two investigators, but the Coast Guard will handle the probe into what happened. No timeline for answers has been provided.

“It will be very interesting to see what they find,” Goelz said.

The Baltimore-bound Golden Ray had barely set sail out of Brunswick, Georgia, and into St. Simons Sound early Sunday morning when trouble struck. An emergency call went out at around 2 a.m. ET, and about two hours later 20 crew members had been rescued.

That left four people to find, but the boat was unstable and a fire was raging, hampering rescue efforts. Monday morning, about 30 hours after the first emergency call, a helicopter landed on the side of the Golden Ray and a team emerged. They later heard tapping coming from the inside the beleaguered ship.

At 1 p.m. Monday it was confirmed that the four were alive. Rescuers cut a hole in the ship to provide more air and to drop food and water. A bigger hole was then cut, but with special tools to ensure another fire was not sparked. 

Three of the crewmen were freed from the engine room at about 3 p.m. The fourth rescue proved more complex. But three hours later, after penetrating blast-proof glass with a diamond-tipped cutter, the last man made a triumphant exit from the ship.

Tim Ferris of the salvage firm Defiant Marine told The Associated Press the South Korean sailors “were being cooked” in the engine room with temperatures reaching 150 degrees. Ferris, who called the rescue “the effort of a lifetime,” said rescuers had to stuff their own pockets with bags of ice to withstand the heat.

The ship is owned by the South Korean firm Hyundai Glovis. South Korean President Moon Jae-in sent letters to President Donald Trump and Admiral Karl Schultz, commandant of the Coast Guard, thanking them for the rescue effort, government spokesperson Ko Min-jung said. Ko also lauded the crew members for overcoming their fear in the isolated space, clinging to hope that rescue would come.

 “Thank you for returning to your families alive,” she said.

Apple iPhone Event: A Rebranded ‘Pro’ Phone, the Series 5 Watch, a New iPad

Here’s what you need to know:

Apple’s product launches have long been full of surprises, mostly centering on innovative new gadgets. The most surprising announcement so far on Tuesday? Apple dropped the price of an iPhone.

Apple said the iPhone 11, its entry-level phone, will start at $700, compared with $750 for the comparable model last year.

The move was a surprise because Apple had been raising prices each year as a way to keep revenues afloat while sales of the devices fell. But Apple might have hit the ceiling this past year. Sales of the two models that began at $1,000 or more lagged expectations, causing the company to cut revenue estimates and eventually slash prices in China to boost demand.

Meanwhile, Apple’s entry-level phone last year — the iPhone XR, at $750 — became the company’s best-selling device.

Analysts say that one issue with the rising prices has been that new iPhone features haven’t kept up. As a result, many people are holding onto their phones for longer than they used to. The dropping price suggests Apple sees that trend and is trying to entice more people to upgrade to a new device.

Apple has rebranded its iPhone line to make the entry-level option the flagship iPhone 11, while adding a “Pro” label to its pricier models.

The move is a departure from Apple’s previous marketing strategy, which instead gave the cheapest phone a different label that branded it as the discounted model. (Though it still started at $750.) The iPhone XR became Apple’s best-selling iPhone, while its more expensive models struggled in some markets. Those lagging sales caused Apple to cut revenue estimates earlier this year.

The iPhone XR also likely outperformed its costlier cousins in part because tech reviewers considered it to be about as good as the flagship iPhone — for 25 percent less. Apple has long been in a bind on pricing and developing its line of iPhones, aiming to make the least expensive devices still worth paying hundreds of dollars for without undercutting the pricier models.

The rebranding suggests Apple is embracing the lowest-priced iPhone as the device most people will use, while marketing the pricier “Pro” devices for the higher end of the market. The company has done the same with its iPads, also labeling its most advanced tablets the iPad Pro.

Apple introduced three new phones: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The main difference? Each of the three iPhones gained a new camera lens.

The new high-end Pro models include a triple-lens main camera, up from two lenses in last year’s models, and the entry-level iPhone now has a dual-lens camera, up from a single lens in last year’s iPhone XR. All the iPhones include a so-called ultrawide angle lens.

Here’s what that means: The new ultra-wide lens take photos with a wider field of view than traditional phone cameras, which makes it handy for shooting landscapes or large group gatherings. Samsung’s Galaxy S10, which released this year, also includes an ultra-wide angle lens for taking wider shots.

The second lens on the entry-level iPhone will also make the camera more capable of shooting photos in portrait mode, which puts the picture’s main subject in sharp focus while gently blurring the background.

Last year’s iPhone XR had a single lens and was capable of shooting portrait photos of only human subjects. The second lens in the new entry-level iPhone will let you take portrait shots of non-human subjects like food, animals and plants.

On the high-end iPhones, the triple-lens system lets users zoom in closer on their subjects. Apple also said it had added a night mode for shooting photos in low light. By default, when users shoot photos in the dark, the camera will automatically make photos look better lit.

With its focus on camera tech, Apple is playing catch up with Google. Google’s Pixel smartphones focus on camera innovations including Night Sight, a popular feature for shooting photos in low light, which led critics to conclude that the search giant had used its prowess in artificial intelligence to surpass Apple in camera tech.

Apple detailed the Apple Watch Series 5. The watch’s most noteworthy new feature is its so-called always-on display. In previous models, the screen would turn on when you tilted your wrist to check the time.

The new watch uses a display technology (previously seen in Samsung phones) to keep some pixels activated just to show the time, consuming little power. The screen becomes fully lit up when you tilt your wrist. Other updates to the watch, including a built-in compass, were minor. The watch starts at $400, the same price as the last model. It will be available on Sept. 20.

Apple introduced a new version of its entry-level iPad, which costs $330. The new model includes a 10.2-inch screen, up from 9.7 inches. Unlike the previous model, the new tablet is compatible with Apple’s Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil. (Previous iPads worked with only third-party styluses and keyboards.)

The updated iPad is unremarkable compared to Apple’s high-end iPad Pros, which include sharper screens and infrared face recognition and work with a more advanced Apple stylus. However, the entry-level iPad is Apple’s best-selling tablet, and its investment in the entry-level model shows the company’s commitment to the category even though its sales have slowed down.

At last, Apple’s original television shows have a premiere date and price point. The company’s chief executive, Tim Cook, announced on Tuesday that Apple would begin rolling out original shows and movies on Nov. 1 for $5 per month.

Apple TV Plus, which will be the home of all of Apple’s original content, will be free for a year to users who purchase a company product like a new iPhone or a laptop.

Apple announced that on Nov. 1, it would feature a lineup of adult dramas, comedies, children’s programs and documentaries. Those series include four shows the company has released trailers for, including “The Morning Show,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell; “Dickinson,” a comedy starring Hailee Steinfeld and Jane Krakowski; “See,” an epic drama starring Jason Momoa; and “For All Mankind,” a space drama. The launch will also feature other programs, including Oprah Winfrey’s new book club, a Peanuts series called “Snoopy in Space” and a documentary that Apple bought the rights to last year called “The Elephant Queen.”

The launch date puts Apple in the thick of the so-called streaming wars that have consumed Hollywood. Disney is rolling out its new streaming service, Disney Plus, on Nov. 12. AT&T’s Warner Media, the home of HBO, Warner Bros. and the DC comic universe, will introduce its own streaming service next year, and will announce new details for it on Oct. 29.

The price point makes it cheaper than Disney’s service, which will be $7 a month, and less than Netflix, which is $13 per month. The premiere date and the price point finally put has been asked since it started making deals 23 months ago.

But questions linger: How will Apple market these programs in the coming months? Which shows will be introduced from the get-go? And will Apple drop all episodes of new series at once like Netflix, or will they roll out once a week?

Apple announced it was getting into gaming earlier this year. Now we know how much its game subscription will cost: $5 a month.

Apple said its Apple Arcade gaming service would be available starting Sept. 19 in more than 150 countries. The service charges users a monthly fee for access to more than 100 games that aren’t available elsewhere. The games can be played on iPhones, iPads, Macs and on Apple TV.

Apple showed off several of the games on Tuesday, including an undersea-exploration game from Japanese game maker Capcom and an updated version of the arcade classic Frogger.

Apple Arcade is part of a larger strategy by Apple to create a steady, more predictable revenue stream from services as sales of iPhones continue to slide. Apple has also added subscription services for news, music and streaming video.

Apple spent hundreds of millions of dollars to fund the development of new games for Apple Arcade, The Financial Times reported in April. Analysts expect gaming could become a major moneymaker for Apple within the next several years. HSBC analysts forecast its revenues to reach $2.7 billion by 2022, outpacing Apple’s news and video subscription services.

GOP leaders blast Dems for refusing to schedule IG testimony after Comey report

Westlake Legal Group AP19045039588224-1 GOP leaders blast Dems for refusing to schedule IG testimony after Comey report Ronn Blitzer fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc bef66b5d-ddc2-5384-8427-25cdde868bc9 article

Republican congressional leaders chastised House Judiciary Committee Democrats on Tuesday for allegedly refusing to call Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to testify, after he released a bombshell report describing how former FBI Director James Comey violated agency rules in his handling of sensitive information.

House GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., both accused Democrats of snubbing a witness they claim could provide information that undermines efforts to impeach President Trump.

PELOSI INSISTS DEMS ARE UNITED, EVEN AFTER NADLER MAKES NEW PUSH TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT

“The Democrats on the Judiciary Committee will not bring him in to testify,” Cheney said at a press conference. “They refuse to do that, and we think that that just fundamentally shows you their lack of substantive concern for issues that really should matter, when the director of the FBI conducts himself that way, because they’re too focused on political attacks on the president.”

McCarthy echoed Cheney, pointedly criticizing Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who is moving this week to hold a vote formalizing procedures for an impeachment investigation.

“Every time inside Congress, when an inspector general has brought forth an important report, we’ve brought them before a committee to actually hear what they had found,” McCarthy said, arguing that Horowitz’s investigation was an “appropriate” subject to be heard by the committee. “Maybe that is a disagreement with the promise that chairman Nadler made for his political friends, that he would just impeach this president regardless of facts.”

Nadler’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Nadler has defended his course of action in pursuing Trump-related investigations, including high-profile hearings with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other figures.

“President Trump went to great lengths to obstruct Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, including the President’s attempts to remove the Special Counsel and encourage witnesses to lie and to destroy or conceal evidence. Anyone else who did this would face federal criminal prosecution,” Nadler said in a statement Monday. “He has dangled pardons, been involved in campaign finance violations and stonewalled Congress across the board, noting that he will defy all subpoenas. No one is above the law.”

Horowitz’s report, meanwhile, cast a harsh light on Comey’s actions, stating he violated bureau policies by drafting, disseminating and retaining memos documenting discussions he had with the president. It also said that he leaked sensitive information on an ongoing investigation, by leaking a memo on a discussion about the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Apart from the Comey probe, Horowitz has another pending report that is eagerly anticipated by Republicans. That one deals with the FBI’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to obtain a warrant for monitoring former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Republicans claim the FBI misrepresented information to get the warrant during the early stages of the Russia investigation.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has predicted that Horowitz’s FISA report will be “ugly and damning” for the Justice Department.

Tuesday’s criticism comes after another Republican, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, blasted Democrats for not yet calling Horowitz in for a hearing.

REP. JIM JORDAN: DEMOCRATS PUSHING ‘RIDICULOUS’ IMPEACHMENT PROBE AT COST OF AMERICAN PEOPLE

“He just issued a scathing report about Jim Comey, the former FBI director, and nothing has been scheduled to bring in Mr. Horowitz to answer our questions,” Jordan said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”

“When you’re solely focused on going after the president, you can’t do what’s best for the country, and that’s been the problem with the Democrats,” Jordan said.

McCarthy had a similar message Tuesday.

“It is time for the Democrats to stop focusing on trying to tear the president down but actually build America up,” he said.

Poll: Most Americans Want To See Congress Pass Gun Restrictions

Westlake Legal Group gettyimages-1162022662_custom-a8aaae0d6637471274b7229c132a700ed8b45db7-s1100-c15 Poll: Most Americans Want To See Congress Pass Gun Restrictions

Westlake Legal Group  Poll: Most Americans Want To See Congress Pass Gun Restrictions

There is widespread support among Americans — Democrats, Republicans and gun owners, alike — for a number of initiatives to curb gun violence they would like to see Congress pass, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

Laws that would screen for the types of people who could use a gun are broadly popular, but when it comes to bans on certain types of weapons and ammunition, a divide emerges.

Increasing funding for mental health screenings and treatment, universal background checks, red-flag laws and requiring gun licenses all get broad bipartisan support as well as the support of a majority of gun owners. (Red-flag laws, also known as extreme-risk protection orders, allow police or family members to request that a judge temporarily remove guns from a person who may be a danger to themselves or others.)

“You’d be hard-pressed to find something where the gap between public sentiment and legislative action or inaction is wider because you’ve got a clear consensus across party lines,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll. “The gap is huge, and the congressional crowd is very much out of step with where public opinion is on this. And therein lies the frustration [of many Americans], as the frequency of these shootings increases.”

After a summer that saw high-profile mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Odessa, Texas; Congress is back, and there is a renewed push to pass gun restrictions, but Republican congressional leadership is deferring to President Trump.

Democrats have made implementing gun restrictions a top priority, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has declined to bring anything to the Senate floor until he is certain of what President Trump would support.

Trump has wavered on whether he even wants universal background checks passed. Without the president’s support, passage of any gun restrictions is highly unlikely.

Bans and overall sentiment on guns prove more divisive

Majorities of Americans support bans on high-capacity ammunition magazines and assault-style weapons, but there are gaps between the parties, men and women, where people live and whether or not they own a gun.

While Democrats and independents want Congress to pass them, Republicans do not.

Men and women also divide here: 72% of women are in favor of banning assault-style weapons, while 55% of men are against it.

Gun owners — majorities of whom support Congress passing legislation to increase mental health funding (88%), require background checks (77%), institute a national red-flag law (62%) and require licensing before purchase of a gun (57%) — are split on a high-capacity magazine ammunition ban (47% for, 50% against) and against a ban on assault-style weapons (57%).

Controlling gun violence vs. protecting gun rights

When it comes to the general sentiment around guns and whether it’s more important to control gun violence or protect gun rights, a majority of Americans say it’s more important to control gun violence (55% to 39%).

That margin has been been consistent since April of 2013, when former President Barack Obama declared it a “shameful day for Washington” after Congress failed to pass gun-control legislation months after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Again, gender, place and party divides emerge:

-Two-thirds of women (67%) believe it’s more important to control gun violence, while a slim majority of men say the opposite (51%);

-Almost two-thirds who live in big cities (63%) say controlling gun violence is more important, as do more than 6-in-10 who live suburbs.

-But a majority who live in rural areas (54%) say it’s more important to protect gun rights;

-And the parties are sharply split: 90% of Democrats say control gun violence, while 69% of Republicans say protect gun rights.

Teachers with guns and buyback programs

A majority of Americans do not think Congress should pass legislation to allow school teachers to carry guns by a 57%-to-37% margin, and they are split on whether there should be a mandatory buyback program of assault-style weapons (45% are in favor, 46% are against).

Again, there are sharp divides — Democrats and independents are against allowing teachers to carry guns in schools, but Republicans are in favor of it. Independents swing toward Republicans, however, when it comes to mandatory buyback programs of assault guns, which they do not think Congress should pass.

Two-thirds of women are against Congress passing legislation to allow teachers to have guns in schools, while men are evenly divided (50% are against it, 45% are in favor).

When it comes to whether Congress should create a mandatory gun buyback program, 55% of women think it should, 61% of men don’t want to see that.

And a strong majority of gun owners (61%) are against buyback programs.

Methodology

The survey of 1,314 adults was conducted with live caller via telephone by The Marist Poll and has a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points. There are 1,160 registered voters with a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points. There are 514 gun owners for a margin of error of 5.8 percentage points.

US to commemorate 9/11 victims amid controversy over Trump inviting Taliban to Camp David

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close US to commemorate 9/11 victims amid controversy over Trump inviting Taliban to Camp David

U.S. peace talks with the Taliban are now “dead,” President Donald Trump declared Monday, one day after he abruptly canceled a secret meeting he had arranged with Taliban and Afghan leaders aimed at ending America’s longest war. (Sept. 9) AP, AP

The toll in human lives lost from the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, extends beyond the nearly 3,000 people killed as a direct result of the assault.

That reality will be acknowledged Wednesday as part of remembrance ceremonies on the 18th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist acts on American soil.

Tributes will be held, among other places, at the memorial plaza at the World Trade Center site in New York City, in the Washington area and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on the field where United Flight 93 crashed after passengers and crew members foiled hijackers’ plot to slam the plane into the U.S. Capitol.

The somber, nonpartisan commemorations have been touched by controversy this year after President Donald Trump announced he had planned to have secret meetings Sunday with leaders of the Taliban, the militant Afghan group that supported 9/11 leader Osama bin Laden.

Those talks, to be held at Camp David, were scrapped after the Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing Thursday in Kabul that killed 12 people, including an American serviceman.

The plans to invite a terrorist organization to the historic retreat, days before the Sept. 11 anniversary, drew swift condemnation, including from members of the Republican Party.

Explained: Why 9/11 isn’t a national holiday, and why it’s likely to stay that way

Politics aside, this year’s memorial in New York – where more than 2,600 people died after two hijacked jets smashed into the World Trade Center’s twin towers – will feature the traditional reading of their names.

Events start at 8:40 a.m. EDT in a ceremony hosted by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum that can be watched on 911memorial.org/live – the function itself is open only to victims’ relatives – and it will include moments of silence at the time of the four flight impacts and when each of the towers collapsed.

At sunset, around 7:12 p.m. local time, the yearly Tribute in Light will come on, and parallel beams will shoot into the sky to represent the fallen skyscrapers.

Off mark: Why Donald Trump’s plan to host Taliban at prestigious Camp David stirred bipartisan outrage

A less shiny yet still meaningful homage has been added this year, when granite slabs were installed at the memorial plaza in recognition of the people killed or sickened by toxins from the World Trade Center wreckage.

In the 9/11 Memorial Glade, the stone pieces jut from the ground along a tree-lined pathway and, according to the signs, are dedicated “to those whose actions in our time of need led to injury, sickness, and death.” Those include the first responders and others who provided aid after the plane crashes at all three sites.

The twin towers’ collapse produced thick dust clouds, and fires burned for months in the rubble. Many rescue and recovery workers developed respiratory and digestive system ailments potentially linked to inhaled and swallowed dust. Some were diagnosed with other illnesses, including cancer.

Research continues into whether those illnesses are tied to 9/11 toxins. In a study in 2018, researchers found a higher incidence of deaths from brain cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and certain other diseases among rescue and recovery workers, as well as an unusual number of suicides.

Joanna Reisman, whose firefighter husband died of brain cancer three years after searching through the WTC debris for remains, said the memorial addition should not detract from acknowledgment of the pain endured by the relatives of the initial victims.

“We just have to recognize that there were others, too,’’ Reisman said.

Victims at the Pentagon 

Like New York, the Washington area holds an event for families of 9/11 victims. The focus of the yearly remembrances hosted by the Pentagon Memorial are the 184 people who died when American Flight 77 smashed into the Pentagon building in Arlington County, Virginia, killing all on board and 125 people on the ground.

Slim chance: Why 9/11 isn’t a national holiday, and why it’s likely to stay that way

The Pentagon Memorial itself, composed of 184 benches with the names of each of the victims inscribed, is free and usually open 24 hours a day. The one exception is Wednesday, when it will be closed to the public from 5 to 11 a.m. for a private ceremony. A 24-minute audio tour is available.

Other commemorative events around Washington include a moment of silence at 9:37 a.m. – the time when the plane struck – at Arlington National Cemetery and the 9/11 Promise Run, a multiday relay that starts at the Pentagon Memorial and is scheduled to end Wednesday at Ground Zero. This year, there’s also a biking expedition to Shanksville.

Heroes in Pennsylvania

A few miles north of that tiny southwestern Pennsylvania town, organizers and supporters will hold a morning observance at the Flight 93 Memorial Plaza, part of a national park dedicated to the victims.

They are remembered as heroes – their bravery depicted in the 2006 TV movie “Flight 93” – for preventing the hijackers from accomplishing their goal.

After the names of the 40 passengers and crew members who died are read out loud and bells are rung in remembrance, a wreath will be laid at the Wall of Names.

Visitors are invited.

‘Storm Area 51’ has Nevada tour owner pausing trips, warning visitors: ‘They take that whole place seriously’

When the masses possibly descend on the rural Nevada landscape later this month for the viral “Storm Area 51” event and related festivals that have popped up after its creation, don’t expect to set out for the full alien experience with Will Tryon’s tour company.

Area 51 is popularly known as the site of rumored government studies of outer space aliens. The “Storm Area 51” Facebook event went viral in July as people pledged to crash the secret military base in an attempt to “see them aliens.” More than 3 million Facebook users have now said they are going, with over 1.4 million replying they were interested.

After going viral, the event — which started as a joke — spurred two rural Nevada counties to draft emergency declarations, with local law enforcement planning to team resources with the state and neighboring counties ahead of the Sept. 20-22 events.

Tryon, the owner of Las Vegas Adventure Tours and operator of GetYourGuide’s Area 51 tour, told Fox News on Monday that his company won’t be taking customers out into the area from Sept. 19 to 22 out of concerns that things could “get difficult,” including the possibility that the few gas stations in the area may run out of fuel.

“We have to think first of the safety of their customers,” he said. “I don’t think putting a customer in that kind of situation is a safe choice.”

OWNERS OF LITTLE A’LE’INN PREPARE FOR ‘STORM AREA 51’ EVENT: ‘I’M STILL TERRIFIED’

One of the alien-related festivals is scheduled to take place in the town of Rachel, located about 148 miles north of Las Vegas. The town’s official website warns there is no gas or store in the town of 54 people, with the nearest gas station either 50 miles south in Ash Springs or 110 miles north in Tonopah.

Tryon, who has been running the Area 51 tour for over 18 years, told Fox News he wasn’t surprised the Facebook event went viral because people across the country want to know what’s happening at the top-secret military base.

“It’s simply a rebound of the American desire to know,” he said Monday. “Although storming Area 51, I think, isn’t a good idea. They take that whole place seriously.”

The tour company owner said the best time to visit the area is spring or fall, when weather conditions are “absolutely perfect” in the high-desert area. The viral Facebook event just so happens to be when weather conditions are entering the “best time of the year,” according to Tryon.

He stressed, however, that those staying in Las Vegas can’t get back and forth on one tank of fuel if they plan on attempting to make a trek on their own, especially if there is traffic or any other incident on the few roadways in the region.

“Getting caught in the desert isn’t a good thing, ” he told Fox News. “You can dehydrate and end up with serious issues.”

That’s why he recommends people make sure they go through a certified tour operator, especially avoiding the weekend of scheduled events. In his company’s full-day tours, travelers head out along the infamous “Extraterrestrial Highway” and showcase the scenic desert complete with stops at the Little A’le’Inn, 6-foot Indian petroglyphs that resemble aliens, and get the chance to stand at the perimeter of the military base without fear of arrest.

“For the enthusiasts, it’s a pilgrimage,” Tryon told Fox News. “It has such mystique about it.”

BUD LIGHT JOINS AREA 51 RAID: ‘FREE BUD LIGHT TO ANY ALIEN THAT MAKES IT OUT’

Tryon, who hosts tours for visitors from all over the world, said the viral Facebook event has caused “a nice uptick” in interest for tours in the area.

Lauren Hillhouse, GetYourGuide’s destination manager for Arizona and Nevada, told Fox News on Monday that the area typically sees interest from travelers in the U.S., but the European-based tour company has seen searches spike from people in places such as South America, Germany, Spain, and Italy. Traffic to its Area 51 activities page soared to 20 times normal levels in the past month, according to GetYourGuide.

“I think they’re looking for attractions, but what they are finding are tours,” she said Monday.

Hillhouse said that Area 51 tours were not even on her top points of interest until the Facebook event “exploded.” She said that, aside from avoiding the rural area between Sept. 19 to 22, anyone who is interested in visiting the Area 51 region should make sure to sign up for a legitimate tour and legitimate experience.

“Go through a verified source, do your research and be prepared for it,” she told Fox News.

Tryon, who “fell in love” with the Southwest about 27 years ago, said he plans to be out next weekend on his own with a film crew — and extra gas — to keep tabs on whatever happens.

He’s also convinced the military has had a space ship and even aliens there, citing information about the crash of an unidentified object in Roswell, N.M., on July 8, 1947. Government officials have labeled the crashed object a weather balloon.

“Are we alone in the universe? Of course, we’re not,” he told Fox News.

He also said information from earlier this year, about U.S. Navy pilots reporting having spotted UFOs while training over the East Coast in 2014 and 2015, just adds to the intrigue that people have for the secret site.

“The American people want to know what’s going on at Area 51, and they deserve to know what’s happening at Area 51,” he said.
