California man arrested after cops find him unconscious next to dead infant, authorities say

Authorities in northern California say they have arrested a 29-year-old man who they found unconscious in a home Saturday afternoon with a 13-month-old baby at his side.

Police responded to a home in Santa Rosa – about 60 miles north of San Francisco – around 12:50 p.m. on Saturday. They found a man they identified as Patrick Oneill and an infant lying next to him on the floor of a bedroom. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said there were no signs of “physical violence” but they found “signs of recent drug use next to where the child was discovered.” It was unclear what role, if any, drugs played in the baby’s death.

Oneill was taken to a hospital with “life-threatening injuries,” police said. He is expected to be booked into the Sonoma County Jail on a charge of suspicion of murder after his release from the hospital, they said.

“We still have some more investigating to do,” Santa Rosa pole Lt. Dan Marincik told Bay City News. “We saw no signs of physical injury, and there was narcotic paraphernalia in the room. We believe that the 29-year-old put the child in a situation that ultimately caused his death.”

Republicans slam Ilhan Omar's comments about 9/11 following 'Face the Nation' interview

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Republicans slam Ilhan Omar's comments about 9/11 following 'Face the Nation' interview

The son of a 9/11 victim addressed Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s controversial statement while wearing a shirt that said “Some people did something?” USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – Republicans reignited controversy over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about 9/11 after she was asked about it on a Sunday morning television interview. 

Omar had given remarks before the Council on American-Islamic Relations in March, and had said the group had been “founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” 

Democrats have previously argued Omar’s remarks were taken out of context and that Omar was attempting to differentiate terrorists from all Muslims, whereas Republicans have heavily criticized her for them.  

“Nearly 3,000 Americans were killed by terrorists on 9/11. It shouldn’t be this difficult for Ilhan Omar to understand why her “some people did something” comment was so offensive,” wrote Republican chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a Sunday Twitter post, attaching a clip of Omar’s Sunday morning interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” 

In the interview, the Minnesota Democrat was asked about an incident during this year’s 9/11 remembrance ceremony in New York City in which the son of one of the 9/11 victims had addressed Omar’s previous comments about 9/11.  

“Do you understand why people found that offensive?” asked host Margaret Brennan, in reference to Omar’s past remarks. 

Omar started her response by acknowledging that 9/11 had been “an attack on all Americans,” and that “I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the- the families of 9/11 must feel. But I think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting, right, the aftermath of what happened after 9/11.

9/11 memorial controversy: Son of 9/11 victim addresses Ilhan Omar during memorial: ‘Show respect in honoring them, please’

More: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, others blast Trump for 9/11 video coupled with Rep. Omar’s comments

Omar continued by saying her past remarks had been in reference to civil rights violations against Muslims in the aftermath of 9/11. 

“What I was speaking to was the fact that as a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me a suspect,” she said. 

A few days earlier at the Ground Zero remembrance ceremony, Nicholas Haros Jr., whose mother was killed in the terrorist attacks, wore a black T-shirt with the words “Some people did something” as he read a list of victims’ names, including his mother’s.

“Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom. Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done,” Haros Jr. said. “There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”

Omar’s remarks have been a source of criticism on the right. 

In April, President Donald Trump posted a video with part of Omar’s CAIR remarks juxtaposed with images of planes hitting the World Trade Center. 

Omar said she received death threats after Trump’s tweet, and her fellow Democrats accused the president of jeopardizing Omar’s life with the post, arguing the content was geared to incite Trump followers. 

At the time, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted to say that “Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack.”

Following the incident at the 9/11 ceremony this year, Omar’s office pointed USA TODAY  to the congresswoman’s previous remarks that there was “a particular bias and a certain lens that people critique the words I use. And that is not a bias or a lens that I can get rid of with one answer, with one conversation.” 

She noted that, “To some people, it’s easy for them to not think of me as an American, as someone who would not have the same feelings as they did as we were being attacked on American soil.”

Atlanta Braves’ Culberson suffers facial fractures after taking pitch to face on bunt attempt, team says

Atlanta Braves utility player Charlie Culberson suffered “multiple facial fractures” after a 91 mph pitch struck him in the face during a bunt attempt in Saturday’s playoff-clinching win over the Washington Nationals, the team announced.

The 30-year-old had been cleared to travel back to Atlanta, where team doctors will assess the next steps in his treatment, the Braves said Sunday. There was no mention on when he could return to the field.

MILWAUKEE BREWERS’ CHRISTIAN YELICH BREAKS KNEECAP, WILL MISS REST OF SEASON

The scary moment came during the seventh inning of the 10-1 victory at Nationals Park. With the game tied 1-1, Culberson pinch hit for starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz with two on and no out when Washington reliever Fernando Rodney’s first-pitch fastball struck him on the right cheekbone.

Culberson fell backward immediately on impact. He stayed down holding his face until trainers helped him to his feet. He gave a thumbs-up as he was carted off the field with a towel pressed to his face and taken to a hospital.

“It was very tough to see that. He’s a phenomenal human being. One of the best teammates you could have,” Foltynewicz said. “I look up to him as a father. He actually has three kids. It’s his kid’s birthday today, one of them. I want to be just like him as a father.”

The incident included some controversy after crew chief Tim Timmons called the pitch a strike since Culberson squared up to bunt. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker launched into a profanity-fueled tirade against Timmons, shouting “Shame on you!” Snitker was promptly ejected, his fourth this season.

“You can’t bunt when the ball is coming at your face,” a more restrained Snitker told reporters after the game. “That just sounds like … My God. I am not going to even get into that. I am sitting there looking at this guy’s pooling blood on the ground. And I am like, ‘Come on.'”

The Braves seemed to rally behind their fallen teammate on back-to-back doubles from Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ozzie Albies that drove in runs and sent the Nationals’ bullpen spiraling into a meltdown. The Washington bullpen gave up nine runs over the final four innings.

The win clinched the Braves’ (93-57) first consecutive postseason spot since 2012-13, but the clubhouse afterward was subdued as the team remained concerned over their utility man.

UAW Votes To Strike

Westlake Legal Group facebook-default-wide UAW Votes To Strike

The United Auto Workers voted Sunday to strike after not agreeing with General Motors on wages, heath care and profit sharing. The strike may bring the automaker’s U.S. production to a halt.

LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

The United Auto Workers and General Motors have failed to come to an agreement on a new contract, and union leaders say a nationwide strike will start before midnight tonight. As NPR’s Bobby Allyn reports, the expected strike is set to affect nearly 50,000 workers and potentially disrupt production across North America.

BOBBY ALLYN, BYLINE: UAW Vice President Terry Dittes says talks with GM have broken down and the workers are still far apart on a number of economic issues, including wages, health care costs and profit-sharing. The nationwide strike is set to idle U.S. production.

TERRY DITTES: The strike is about the members in Texas, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and throughout the great nation. We’re fighting for the future of the middle class.

ALLYN: The four-year contract between GM and UAW lapsed on Saturday. UAW’s Brian Rothenberg says negotiations are continuing, but it is very unlikely both sides can figure out their big differences before midnight.

BRIAN ROTHENBERG: Basically, when they – when the morning shift would have reported for work, they won’t be there. And the picket lines are being set up.

ALLYN: Kristin Dziczek is the vice president of the Center for Automotive Research. She says the strike would have to last more than a month to affect inventory at car lots. But she says the impact will ripple fast across North America.

KRISTIN DZICZEK: There’s great reliance on cross-border trade in engines and transmissions and other parts to support production in Canada and Mexico. So it would not take long before Canada and Mexico were also shut down.

ALLYN: Dziczek says GM made more than $8 million in profits last year. But still, both sides are wary about the prospect of a weakening economy. GM has announced closing four factories, and the union has been fighting those decisions. GM says the average hourly employee makes around $90,000 a year. Dittes says the union will not make concessions.

DITTES: This strike is about us. It’s about standing up for fair wages, for affordable, quality health care, for our share of profits and for our job security.

ALLYN: The strike comes at a time of crisis for UA leadership. A years-long federal corruption probe has already resulted in multiple guilty pleas over embezzlement and bribing allegations. Bobby Allyn, NPR News.

Amway Coaches Poll: Clemson remains No. 1, while four new teams join the rankings

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Amway Coaches Poll: Clemson remains No. 1, while four new teams join the rankings

A largely upset-free week in college football produced little change in the Amway Coaches Poll, at least at the upper echelons. The top ten teams remained unchanged, with Clemson and Alabama continuing to hold down the first two places while monopolizing the first-place votes.

The Tigers handled their first ACC road test, smothering recent nemesis Syracuse, and claimed 62 of the 65 No. 1 votes to stay comfortably on top of the poll. The second-ranked Crimson Tide, who also took care of business in their league road opener at South Carolina, received the other three firsts.

Georgia, Oklahoma and LSU round out the top five, followed by No. 6 Ohio State and No. 7 Notre Dame.

Florida had the closest call among the top ten but rallied to win at Kentucky. The Gators stayed put at No. 8, finishing just two poll points ahead of No. 9 Auburn. Michigan, which had the weekend off, holds steady at No. 10.

TOP 25: Complete Amway Coaches Poll rankings

The highest ranked team to switch positions is Utah, which nudged ahead of Penn State for the No. 11 spot. No. 13 Texas remains the highest ranked team with a loss on the season.

Four top-25 teams were upset victims, headed by then-No. 19 Michigan State. All four of those fell out of the rankings. The others were Mississippi State, Southern California and Maryland, each of whom enjoyed just a one-week stay in the poll.

No. 22 Virginia heads the quartet of newcomers after staving off Florida State. No. 23 California, No. 24 Arizona State and No. 25 Kansas State also move in.

Bernie Sanders, in Las Vegas, Previews Plan for Affordable Housing

Westlake Legal Group 15sanders-housing-facebookJumbo Bernie Sanders, in Las Vegas, Previews Plan for Affordable Housing Sanders, Bernard Real Estate and Housing (Residential) Presidential Election of 2020

LAS VEGAS — Senator Bernie Sanders introduced a $2.5 trillion housing policy plan on Saturday that would include ending homelessness and limiting rent increases across the country by imposing a national rent control standard.

Mr. Sanders said that over the next decade, his plan would expand public housing, increase the availability of affordable housing and cap annual rent increases nationally, regardless of income, at no more than one and a half times the rate of inflation or 3 percent, whichever is higher. His campaign said he would be releasing his full plan within the next month.

“We have an affordable housing crisis in Nevada, in Vermont and all over this country that must be addressed,” he told an audience of about 100 people at a union hall in Las Vegas, which was hit hard by the housing crisis a decade ago. “For too long, this is one of those issues that we just don’t talk about.”

This is the second time in the past 15 days that Mr. Sanders’s campaign has teased a policy rollout without releasing an actual proposal. Late last month, the Vermont senator said at a health care-focused event in Florence, S.C., that he planned to introduce legislation that would eliminate all medical debt. His campaign followed his pronouncement with a one-page overview of what the plan would entail, including canceling $81 billion of existing medical debt. The campaign also said at the time that a plan would be released within a month.

[Sign up for our politics newsletter hosted by Lisa Lerer and join the conversation around the 2020 presidential race.]

The series of soft rollouts underscore just how policy focused the Democratic presidential primary has become. Led by Senator Elizabeth Warren, the field has been introducing policy plans at a pace that at times has been frenetic.

Mr. Sanders has long advocated for affordable housing, even during his days as mayor of Burlington, Vt., in the 1980s. But though he suggested housing was not a front-burner topic for many politicians, other 2020 candidates have also introduced housing policies.

Mr. Warren and Julián Castro, the former housing secretary under President Barack Obama, have already released their own housing proposals. Senator Kamala Harris has also introduced a bill that would allow overburdened renters to access a sliding tax credit based on factors like income and cost of rent.

Mr. Sanders said he would pay for the plan by instituting a wealth tax on the top one-tenth of 1 percent of American households, or about 175,000 households, but provided little else in the way of specific details.

During his address, part of a weekend swing through Nevada that also featured a rally at the University of Nevada, Reno, on Friday, Mr. Sanders also attacked President Trump and attempted to draw a contrast between his childhood and the president’s more privileged upbringing.

“Unlike Donald Trump, I did not grow up in a wealthy family or live in some fancy house,” he said, a thought he has expressed before. In a rare occurrence, Mr. Sanders also mentioned his mother during his address, saying she had always wanted to move out of the three-and-a-half room rent-controlled apartment in Brooklyn, where they lived when he was a boy.

“My mother’s dream was that someday we would move out of that rent-controlled apartment in Brooklyn and we would own a home of our own,” he said. “My mother died young, and her dream was never fulfilled. But during her life, at least our family was always able to afford a roof over our heads, because we were living in a rent-controlled building, which meant that for our family and all the other families in our building, rents could not be arbitrarily raised.”

[Which Democrats are leading the 2020 presidential race this week?]

As with many of his proposals, Mr. Sanders acknowledged that the cost of his housing plan would be steep.

“I have no doubt that within five minutes after this speech is made public, my critics will be jumping up and down as is usually the case and they will tell you that the plan that I am releasing is expensive,” he said. “And the truth is it is expensive.”

Mr. Sanders also promised to commit $32 billion over five years to end homelessness, and provide outreach services for people experiencing chronic homelessness. He did not say how he would end it; his campaign said more details would be in his full proposal.

Astead W. Herndon contributed reporting from New York.

McCarthy promises accountability as Barr reviews IG’s FISA report: ‘The closest we’ve ever seen to a coup’

Westlake Legal Group Kevin-MCCarthy McCarthy promises accountability as Barr reviews IG’s FISA report: ‘The closest we’ve ever seen to a coup’ Ronn Blitzer fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc f8c4b245-54d0-50f9-8bbd-4b13c881a459 article

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., promised that guilty parties will be held accountable after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz releases his report on the FBI’s alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in the Russia investigation, and predicted that former bureau leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe will face criminal charges after what he described as an attempted “coup” to take down President Trump.

The report will address concerns with whether or not the FBI acted improperly in obtaining a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early stages of their investigation of Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign connections. The Inspector General’s office has already turned over a draft of its findings to Attorney General Bill Barr, and a final report is expected in the near future.

DOJ WATCHDOG SUBMITS DRAFT REPORT ON ALLEGED FISA ABUSES TO BARR

“We came the closest ever to this country having a coup, and now we need accountability,” McCarthy told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “I respect this attorney general so greatly, that the way he has handled this, he believes in accountability, but more importantly, he believes in the rule of law.”

When asked if there will really be accountability, McCarthy promised, “Yes.”

James Comey and Andrew McCabe, who were the director and deputy director of the FBI when the Russia probe began, have been the subjects of separate IG investigations, and McCarthy believes they will both face consequences.

“We will see an indictment,” he said of McCabe, who is facing the prospect of federal charges after Horowitz faulted him in a separate inquiry over statements he made during a Hillary Clinton-related investigation. The review found that McCabe “lacked candor” when talking with investigators, but the former FBI official has denied wrongdoing. Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu recommended charges against McCabe after the DOJ rejected his appeal.

US ATTORNEY RECOMMENDS PROCEEDING WITH CHARGES AGAINST MCCABE, AS DOJ REJECTS LAST-DITCH APPEAL

Comey was chastised in a recent report from Horowitz that discussed how Comey improperly maintained records of his conversations with President Trump, and leaked sensitive information about the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. While the report found that Comey violated department policy, the DOJ opted not to press charges. McCarthy believes that there will be more to come for Comey.

“In the end, I do not believe that Jim Comey will get off,” McCarthy predicted, adding, “Anyone that has had any association with trying to create this coup should be held accountable.”

After President Trump fired Comey in May 2017, McCabe became acting director of the FBI. McCabe’s tenure at the FBI came to an end in March 2018 when then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him in the wake of the IG report of his misstatements.

Republicans claim that the FBI, under Comey and McCabe’s leadership, misrepresented key information in applying for the FISA warrant for Page in October 2016 — and three subsequent renewals — and improperly relied on an unverified dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

Horowitz’s team has questioned why the FBI considered Steele a credible source, and why the bureau seemed to use news reports to bolster Steele’s credibility.

Trump Lashes Out — Says Kavanaugh Should Sue After NYT Report

President Donald Trump on Sunday once again came to the defense of Brett Kavanaugh following a new sexual misconduct allegation against the Supreme Court justice.

“Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue,” the president tweeted, at first misspelling the word “libel” as “liable.”

His outburst follows a New York Times story published Saturday that revealed a previously unreported sexual misconduct allegation involving Kavanaugh when he was a student at Yale University in the 1980s. According to that report, Max Stier, a former classmate of Kavanaugh’s, said he saw Kavanaugh put his genitals on a female student during a dorm room party.

The allegation is similar to one previously made against Kavanaugh by another former classmate of his, Deborah Ramirez. The Times report also noted that it found at least seven corroborating sources for Ramirez’s story.

Christine Blasey Ford has additionally testified that Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her to a bed when they were in high school. She said Kavanaugh then attempted to take her clothes off before she managed to escape.

Trump has been an outspoken defender of his embattled Supreme Court pick, who has denied wrongdoing. Trump has praised him as “an incredible individual, great intellect, great judge. Impeccable history in every way.”

This latest allegation brought against Kavanaugh on Saturday launched calls for a new investigation into the judge’s past conduct. Democratic presidential contender Julián Castro and some former U.S. attorneys have joined in those calls.

Fellow presidential contenders Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) added to those calls later Sunday, both describing Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court vetting process as a “sham.”

“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” Harris tweeted. “He must be impeached.”

“I strongly oppose him,” Klobuchar told ABC News, “based on his views on the executive power which will continue to haunt our country, as well as how he behaved, including the allegations that we are hearing more about today. My concern here is that the process was a sham.”
