Pelosi Rips Republicans For ‘Normalizing Lawlessness’ In Scathing WaPost Op-Ed

Westlake Legal Group 5e3e6efd210000b407e1cd4a Pelosi Rips Republicans For ‘Normalizing Lawlessness’ In Scathing WaPost Op-Ed

Nancy Pelosi on Friday launched a fresh attack on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the GOP senators who earlier this week voted to acquit President Donald Trump on impeachment charges.

Pelosi noted how Trump’s defense team “all but” conceded the president’s misconduct in the Ukraine scandal, in which she said he “abused the power of his office to pressure a foreign power to help him cheat in an American election” before stonewalling the congressional investigation into said allegation and preventing key witnesses from testifying in the Senate trial.

“Their argument was only that Congress and the American people have no right to stop him from using his power to cheat in our elections,” said Pelosi, who sparked anger among conservatives on Tuesday when she tore up a copy of Trump’s State of Union speech.

Pelosi said Senate Republicans had “embraced this darkest vision of power: that if the president believes his reelection is good for the country, he can then use any means necessary to win, with no accountability or consequences.”

“In declaring their loyalty to the president over our Constitution, Republicans have made a farce of the old boast that the U.S. Senate is the greatest deliberative body in the world,” she added, warning that “because of the Republican Senate’s betrayal of the Constitution, the president remains an ongoing threat to American democracy.”

First American dies of coronavirus in China: US embassy

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6127195445001_6127190952001-vs First American dies of coronavirus in China: US embassy fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox-news/health fox news fnc/health fnc Brie Stimson article 2d907dd9-3518-5921-a6d3-49e7548d9908

A 60-year-old diagnosed with coronavirus in Wuhan, China, has reportedly become the first U.S. citizen to die of the novel virus.

The patient died at Jinyintian Hospital in Wuhan on Thursday, The New York Times reported.

The U.S. Embassy in Beijing confirmed the patient’s death Friday night but gave few other details.

“We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss,” a spokesman for the embassy said, according to the Times. “Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment.”

The fast-spreading virus has killed more than 700 and infected more than 34,500 in China as of Friday.

Chinese officials are still trying to stem the flow of infections in the mainland as the virus continues to spread globally. The country’s ruling Communist Party is also dealing with public anger over the death of a doctor who was detained and threatened by authorities for spreading early warnings of the illness in December.

As of Friday, 72 countries have implemented travel restrictions, according to the World Health Organization.

So far 12 patients have been diagnosed with the virus in the U.S., but some have already been released from the hospital.

President Trump on Friday tweeted that he had a “good conversation by phone with President Xi of China. He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus. He feels they are doing very well, even building hospitals in a matter of only days. Nothing is easy, but he will be successful.”

Helgi Walker: Clarence Thomas’ legacy is one all Americans should admire

Westlake Legal Group image Helgi Walker: Clarence Thomas' legacy is one all Americans should admire Helgi Walker fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox-news/politics/judiciary fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc ba14df4b-037f-5a0a-b49c-4c8a8b71f6e7 article

I clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas 25 years ago. To millions of people across America he is a heroic figure, just as he is to me. But I am sometimes approached by people who have never read a Supreme Court decision, much less met the justice, but nonetheless have something negative to say about him. 

So how do I respond? I explain that he is widely considered one of the most influential legal thinkers of his time by lawyers, academics, and historians, whether they agree with him or not. And I say, “If you ever had a chance to meet and talk with the justice, you would love and admire him as a human being as much as I do.” 

Now every American has that chance. A powerful new documentary, ”Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” directed by Michael Pack, gives us all the opportunity to hear directly from Justice Thomas in his own words.

JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS: JOE BIDEN HAD ‘NO IDEA’ WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT AT CONFIRMATION HEARINGS

In the film, he speaks into the camera, direct and unfiltered. Watching this movie is like sitting down and having a long conversation with him about his life, faith, family, and values.

And what a wonderful conversation it is. Everybody should see it — the many for whom he is already an American hero, and those who think they know him based on mainstream media depictions.

More from Opinion

It’s not designed as a movie for a legal audience (thank goodness it’s not for the lawyers!). It’s a powerful biography, from a human perspective, about a very special man’s life, and what he achieved in this great country of ours through grit, commitment to principle, and personal bravery. 

A Washington Post writer called it “a marvel of filmmaking that two hours pass so quickly. At the end of a screening I recently attended, there weren’t many dry eyes in the room. The film … is a mesmerizing and deeply moving account of Thomas’s journey from a no-plumbing shack in Georgia’s Lowcountry to the highest court in the land.” Another critic called it “undeniably compelling.”

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

In the movie, we learn about Thomas’ upbringing and how those experiences shaped his journey to the Supreme Court. He talks about growing up in the segregated South in the 1940s and 50s, starting out as a child in a one-room shack in the rural poverty of Pin Point, Georgia and ultimately being raised by his grandparents in a modest house in nearby Savannah that seemed a paradise to him with its running water and a real kitchen.

He talks of being six-years-old and wandering the streets by himself, hungry. He tells us about why he was determined to go into the legal field: His grandfather was pulled over by the police for wearing too many clothes, yet had no way to defend himself in society.

He talks about the nuns at his Catholic high school, who, despite the existing segregation, “were on our side from day one.” The kindness they showed him changed his life. As he explains, “You knew they loved you. And … when you think somebody loves you and deeply cares about your interests, somehow, they can get you to do hard things.” And so they did, encouraging him to excel academically, which he did.

Racism was a daily and hurtful reality. He describes how this discrimination motivated him to be an over-achiever in school, saying, “So I can’t get a 98 … I have to have 100. In other words, to leave them nothing but race. It’s sort of like ‘checkmate.’” 

In the 1960s, the assassination of Martin Luther King threw Thomas into dark despair about the state of race relations in America. He says he became “an angry black man.” He shares about the night he prayed to God to take the hate out of his heart and found a way to embrace love, faith and hard work as his guiding values — the values his grandfather originally taught him.

His commitment to these beliefs allowed Thomas to withstand a brutal Supreme Court confirmation hearing. True to form, he cared more about defending his honor than the job itself.

Even when pushed to withdraw his name from consideration, he would not retreat, saying, “I’d rather die than withdraw.” The film showcases his strength under fire and his unbreakable belief that personal integrity matters more than anything.

After donning the robes of a Supreme Court justice, Thomas reshaped modern jurisprudence to reflect the original intent of the Founding Fathers by relying on the text of the Constitution. Thomas is not swayed by temporary expediency but is guided by the enduring values of our founding documents, such as the Declaration of Independence and its world-changing idea that “All men are created equal.” As he explains in the movie, those values are the key to our constitutional democracy.

Over the decades, Thomas has written forceful and widely-acclaimed opinions protecting free speech, religious freedom, and personal liberty against the administrative state. He has authored more than 600 opinions, 30 percent more than any other sitting justice.

These opinions display a willingness to delve deeply into the history of the Constitution and its meaning and to follow that meaning wherever it leads in a particular case, no matter who the particular parties are. They are based on a rigorous, intellectually honest approach to the law. In this way, he honors and protects our most cherished principles for the long run. 

He taught us all this as law clerks. But what he taught us about life — and what comes through loud and clear in the film — is to think for yourself and to decide for yourself. Exercise your God-given right to intellectual freedom. Don’t let anybody tell you who you have to be, or what you have to believe. Even if it doesn’t always make you popular, you will be true to yourself.

Those in the mainstream media unfortunately often overlook this amazing legal legacy and his personal story. Thankfully, ”Created Equal” captures the justice’s life and honors his legacy as one of the most thoughtful and important jurists of all time.

The film, which is now in select theaters across the country, is living history. I encourage everybody to go see it. 

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

You will laugh, you will cry, and you will come away inspired to forge your path, even when things seem stacked against you. And to those of you who think you already have all the answers, I challenge you to go see the movie and hear for yourself what he has to say. Then make up your own mind.

That’s a right enjoyed by every American; a right Justice Thomas fights for every day.

The also host celebrated the president’s economic numbers.

“These are the good old days, folks,” Ingraham said. “And surveys are showing that Americans are happier than they’ve been for four decades, even happier than under Ronald Reagan. This is great news for America, which means it’s terrible news for the Democrats.”

Ingraham later played a clip of Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., calling this week the worst week of her professional career.

School principal calls Kobe Bryant’s death ‘karma,’ resigns from job

A Washington state high school principal who reportedly called Kobe Bryant‘s death “karma” resigned Friday, according to school officials.

Dr. Liza Sejkora, principal of a school in Camas, Wash., north of Portland, wrote in a since-deleted post on her private Facebook page, “Not gonna lie. Seems to me that karma caught up with a rapist today,” on Jan. 26, the same day Bryant, a retired player for the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people were killed in a helicopter crash. She followed the post with a shrug emoji.

NO SIGN OF ENGINE FAILURE IN HELICOPTER CRASH THAT KILLED KOBE BRYANT, NTSB SAYS

Sejkora was placed on administrative leave Tuesday following a backlash over her remarks.

She apologized for her post, which she called a “visceral response.”

“I made a really bad choice, posted something that was in bad taste, and that’s what I’d like to rebuild from,” Sejkora told Oregon’s FOX 12 ithis week.

Before her resignation, she also wrote a letter to parents and students this week asking for a second chance.

“I want to apologize for suggesting that a person’s death is deserved,” she said, according to NBC News. “It was inappropriate and tasteless. … In education, we remind students to think before they post online, especially when feelings are inflamed. We also teach our students about context. My emotions and past experiences got the best of me in that moment. I’ve learned an important lesson and I hope that I can earn your trust back.”

In her Facebook post, Sejkora was referencing sexual assault allegations brought against Bryant in 2003 that were later dropped after his accuser decided not to testify. Bryant denied the charges.

Sejkora has not commented on her resignation.

A Wisconsin public school teacher was reportedly placed on leave this week after he allegedly called Rush Limbaugh‘s advanced cancer diagnosis “awesome” and said he hopes the radio host’s death is painful.

“limbaugh absolutely should have to suffer from cancer. it’s awesome that he’s dying, and hopefully it is as quick as it is painful,” Travis Sarandos, who teaches in Milwaukee, allegedly tweeted Monday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

RUSH LIMBAUGH ECHOES LOU GEHRIG IN RETURN TO RADIO, SAYS HE’S ‘ONE OF THE LUCKIEST PEOPLE ALIVE’

Sarandos was replying to another tweet whose author said they hoped Limbaugh recovered quickly and would advocate for affordable health care for everyone, the newspaper reported.

The teacher’s tweet sparked a backlash after local radio host Mark Belling posted it on his blog Tuesday.

Milwaukee Public Schools first said Sarandos did not speak for the district but later confirmed he had been placed on leave.

Limbaugh announced on his radio show Monday that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

On Tuesday night, President Trump awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, during the State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol.

Limbaugh returned to his show Friday after missing three shows for treatments. He said those supporting him since disclosing his diagnosis have made him feel like “one of the luckiest people alive.”

Sarandos has since deleted his Twitter account, the Journal Sentinel reported.

Buttigieg edges past Sanders in latest New Hampshire poll

MANCHESTER, N.H. —  Pete Buttigieg is surging – and has edged past Democratic presidential nomination rival Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new survey in New Hampshire, where voters will head to the polls Tuesday in the first primary election of the 2020 race for the White House.

The former mayor of South bend, Ind., is in a statistical tied with the populist senator from Vermont among likely voters in the Granite State, with former Vice President Joe Biden a distant fourth, a Suffolk University survey for the Boston Globe and WBZ-TV released Friday night indicates.

The survey shows Buttigieg at 25 percent and Sanders at 24 percent support among likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, according to Suffolk’s latest daily tracking poll results from Thursday and Friday evenings. Buttigieg has surged 10 percentage points over three nights.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts registers at 14 percent, edging up three points this week. Biden dropped to 11 percent, down four points over the past three nights.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota was at 6 percent,  tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang at 3 percent, billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii each at 2 percent, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado at 1 percent and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick at less than 1 percent, the Suffolk poll indicates.

New Hampshire voters are traditionally late deciders and the poll suggested this year is no different. Seven percent said they remained undecided as Tuesday’s primary election nears, and 45 percent of those backing a candidate said they could change their minds before casting their vote.

Earlier Friday, a new NBC News/Marist poll in New Hampshire showed Sanders at 25 percent support, with Buttigieg at 21 percent. Warren stood at 14 percent, with Biden at 13 percent and Klobuchar at 8 percent.

Steyer and Yang each registered at 4 percent, with Gabbard at 3 percent and Bennet and Patrick at 1 percent.
