Benjamin Netanyahu’s fate uncertain after exit polls show no clear winner in Israel vote

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Benjamin Netanyahu's fate uncertain after exit polls show no clear winner in Israel vote

Every American president in modern times has been staunchly pro-Israel, President Donald Trump perhaps more than most. USA TODAY

For the second time in less than six months, Israelis failed Tuesday to convincingly back a prime minister in an election that highlighted the Jewish state’s complex secular-religious divide and pitted its longest-serving leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, against Benny Gantz, the hawkish former head of Israel’s military.

Netanyahu, 69, was hoping to win an outright majority that would have seen him secure a record fifth term. A former commando whose tenure has been defined by promises to keep Israel secure and prosperous, while sidelining the Palestinians, he could see his decade-long dominance of Israel’s extremely polarized politics abruptly end. 

Gantz, 59, has bragged about flattening entire residential neighborhoods during two wars Israel fought with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. 

Exit polls predicated that neither politician’s party secured a majority, meaning that in order for either to form a government each would need to enter into a coalition deal with opposition parties. Forming a coalition could take days or weeks. Netanyahu failed to form a government in a vote in April, which set up Tuesday’s election do-over.  

The exit polls, carried live on three Israeli television stations, showed that Gantz’s Blue and White party was slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud party.

However, neither party apparently secured a majority in the 120-seat parliament. 

The most likely party each candidate would seek to do a deal with is the right-wing Yisrael Beitenu, headed by Avigdor Lieberman, an immigrant from the former Soviet Union who is also a settler, an Israeli Jew who lives on land claimed by Palestinians. Settlements are considered to be a major obstacle to peace in the long-festering conflict between Israelis and Palestinians that has been running more than 70 years. 

It’s possible that a third vote could also be called. 

Trump factor: As Israel votes, Donald Trump proves he’s the ‘King of Israel’

Ahead of the contest, Netanyahu attempted to energize his center-right base by appealing to voters’ anxieties over Iran, the role of religion in schools, Arab Israeli minorities and the country’s position on settlements – communities of Israeli Jews that build homes on Palestinian-claimed land in the West Bank. “Right now, we’re losing,” he said in a Sunday night campaign video. “If you go out and vote Likud, we’ll win.”

He has also repeatedly boasted of his close relationship with President Donald Trump, who has undertaken a series of high-profile, pro-Israel actions from moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to recognizing the Golan Heights. Huge billboards of Netanyahu and Trump side-by-side are plastered all over the country. 

Among major industrialized powers, only Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and German leader Angela Merkel have led for longer than Netanyahu. However, his tenure in recent years has equally been defined by a series of corruption probes that are looming over him once he leaves office. Among the allegations are bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Netanyahu disputes the allegations. 

Netanyahu is due to face a pre-indictment hearing within weeks, which provided him with another reason to want to secure a majority: An outright victory would have given him the ability to pass a law that would give him immunity from prosecution.

Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6087117830001_6087116212001-vs Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’ Matt Finn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 86e1937b-16e3-5e2b-82d5-f8cb90ae0a8c

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

VIDEOS OF MINNEAPOLIS ROBBERIES, MOB-STYLE BEATINGS GO VIRAL

“I didn’t realize how hard I’d been kicked in the face. It was much more brutal than I thought it was going to be. I assumed that they hit me a couple of times and I gave up and they went on their way but I was knocked unconscious,” O’Brien told Fox News.

O’Brien says he suffered a concussion and injuries all over his body. He now has trouble with memory, sleeping and has a sense of fear.

“I don’t feel as safe as I used to. I think that’s the best way of putting it is that something like this kind of takes a part away from you and I don’t know if I’m gonna’ get that back,” O’Brien said.

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told Fox News the attacks seen in the videos are abhorrent.

“It is truly unacceptable for me as chief and it’s unacceptable for our Minneapolitans,” Arradondo said. “No one wants to tolerate that type of criminal behavior.”

Police told Fox News a team of investigators worked for three weeks in partnership with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department to track down the assailants.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER SHORTAGE REACHING CRISIS LEVEL

“There has to be consequences for your actions,” Arradondo told Fox News. “I don’t want there to be a small group of people that feel that they can go unchallenged, unchecked.”

The videos appear to show groups of black men beating white males but Minneapolis police told Fox News the attacks do not qualify as hate crimes because the attackers didn’t target their victims for class or race. Rather, they were targeted because they were “impaired” or “compromised.”

The videos are emerging as Arradondo said his office is dealing with a crippling police shortage. He has requested a staggering 400 additional officers by 2025. But he said he has to convince an entire city council made up of some members that don’t want to add a single officer to the force.

“I’m going to continue to make the case and hopefully we’ll continue to get the resources that we need to help support the men and women who are doing this job,” Arradondo told Fox News.

So far, Mayor Jacob Frey has proposed 14 additional officers.

The public safety committee chair, Alondra Cano, told Fox News that the city council is now considering adding up to 30 or 40 additional officers to the force. However, the final number won’t be decided until a budget is passed in December.

Cano said a beefed-up police department might have been able to prevent or quickly solve the violent robberies seen on video.

“It was really concerning to me to see those videos and that’s not what I want people to feel Minneapolis is like or about,” Cano said. “We probably could have been able to connect some of these robberies together at an earlier time if we had more support and officers for our investigations unit.”

Cano told Fox News the city is investing in and diversifying its force to better represent the community along with investing in juvenile crime prevention programs.

Trump To Block California From Setting Its Own Car Pollution Standards: Report

Westlake Legal Group 5d812acc2300005805568737 Trump To Block California From Setting Its Own Car Pollution Standards: Report

President Donald Trump’s administration is expected to announce Wednesday that it will revoke California’s legal authority to set its own auto emissions standards, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The state has been in an ongoing legal fight with the Trump administration for the last year over its right to that waiver, which has major influence on the manufacturing of all cars sold in the U.S.

The revocation has long been expected as part of Trump’s effort to roll back former President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which mandates that automakers double the fuel economy of all new cars and light trucks. However, sources familiar with the decision told the Times that this is the only confirmed change as Trump’s policymakers have struggled to find legal and scientific justification for the full overhaul. 

The federal government has sanctioned California’s waiver for nearly 50 years, and 13 other states also follow California’s car pollution standards. In June, Canada ended two decades of aligning itself with U.S. fuel standards and signed on to California’s rules.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) vowed to wage a legal battle against Trump’s plan.

“It’s a move that could have devastating consequences for our kids’ health and the air we breathe, if California were to roll over,” he said in a written statement about Tuesday’s report. “But we will not — we will fight this latest attempt and defend our clean car standards. California, global markets, and Mother Nature will prevail.”

Trump’s impending announcement comes on the heels of his spat with major automakers, four of which reached a voluntary agreement with California on fuel efficiency rules. Trump derided them on Twitter last month as “politically correct Automobile Companies” with “foolish executives.” 

The move is the latest salvo in what some now call the Trump administration’s war on states’ rights, inverting a well-worn Republican talking point.

The conservative movement’s rhetoric on states’ rights took shape during the 1960s, when federalism became a euphemistic proxy for the fight over desegregation. But, particularly under Obama’s administration, Republicans seized on states’ rights to push back against efforts to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.

Yet for all the Trump administration’s talk of making states the “laboratories of democracy once again,” the EPA is putting aggressive curbs on states’ power to enact stricter pollution rules.

In June, the agency issued a new legal guidance that seeks to restrict how states can use a specific provision of the Clean Water Act to deny permits to oil and gas pipelines. In July, the EPA proposed eliminating a rule that allowed individuals or community groups to contest agency-issued pollution permits before a panel of judges.

“States don’t always do the appropriate thing,” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said that month at a conference at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

Now, more than a year after it first threatened to revoke California’s waiver, the agency looks set to make good on that promise. But it may not hold up. A New York University School of Law report last year found that the EPA lacks the legal authority to withdraw the congressionally-granted waiver, and no president has ever tried.

This has been updated with a statement from Gov. Newsom.

Charlie Kirk: It’s Constitution Day, America – Here’s what we should (and should not) be celebrating

Westlake Legal Group FS_American_Flag Charlie Kirk: It's Constitution Day, America – Here's what we should (and should not) be celebrating fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/us/constitution fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Charlie Kirk article 401e93d8-12d3-5738-99ca-e384c23453a2

September 17 is Constitution Day, a day that does not receive the attention of other patriotic holidays like July Fourth, Veteran’s Day, or Memorial Day, but is no less important.  Earlier this summer, Gallup released a new poll that showed only 47 percent of those surveyed feel “extremely proud” to be an American.  This is an all-time low in the 18 years the survey has been performed and is down from 51 percent in 2017.

While Independence Day is celebrated as our nation’s birthday, it really should be celebrated as our nation’s date of conception.  July 4, 1776, marked the day that American Colonialists formally declared their independence from Britain.  The work, however, was just beginning.

6,800 “new” Americans died in action to win our independence.  Once it was won an actual nation had to be created and built.  Our nation’s real birthday is September 17, 1787, when the delegates to the convention in Philadelphia signed the Constitution, therein setting the rules for what would become the greatest nation in history.

KEN CUCCINELLI: THIS CONSTITUTION WEEK, AMERICA WELCOMES 34,000 NEW LEGAL CITIZENS

America today is radically different than America in 1787.  In part that’s because of the evolution of the human experience and advancements in technology that have changed the capabilities, and perhaps the even the very essence of man.  It is also because of the distance between the ideas that formed our nation in that time, and the ideas that people have come to form about our nation today.

We have lost our way in terms of staying connected to the principles of our Founding Fathers.  Many people have used the sad, but inescapable, fact that the failure to count slaves as citizens and provide for their freedom somehow nullifies everything else about our founding.  Their failed logic indicates to them that since we were not perfectly designed, then we have nothing if which to be proud.

That intellectual and moral stretch allows people to replace our beginnings with their own personal definition of what America truly “is.”  We hear this all the time in the news when people, talking about an issue like border enforcement, state, “this is not what America is.”  These statements are made with certainty while being grounded in nothing.  They are just a way to say, “here is what I personally think America should be.”

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

America is not a Rorschach Test and it is not interpretive art.  There are a set of specific things that America is and is not, and while our original design may have been imperfect not only on the issue of slavery but also on the issue of women’s rights as citizens, we have since righted those wrongs through Constitutional Amendments and legislation.  On this Constitution Day, allow me to share thoughts on what Americans should, and should not, be celebrating.

More from Opinion

Rejoice that we do not live in a democracy.  Benjamin Franklin when asked after the Constitutional Convention what sort of government had been created, responded by saying “a Republic, if you can keep it.”  To be specific, we are a federal republic that features representative government, fragmentation of power between the national and state level, and a series of checks and balances to control oppressive factions.  Current efforts to turn our federal republic into a democracy by destroying the Electoral college would effectively end America as conceived.

Celebrate the fact that America is the only nation in history that was created by brilliant and educated men who had read every political theorist from Plato to Rousseau, and from Aristotle to Locke. They had studied every form of government attempted to that point, and then designed ours.  It was the product deliberate and enlightened thought; not the machinations of evil dead, white, European males.

Remember that the unalienable rights embedded in our Declaration of Independence of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (a choice inspired by Locke) were mentioned to explicitly assure Americans that their life would be protected, their liberty would be preserved, and their pursuit of happiness not impeded by the state.  In no way then, nor when the Constitution was signed 11 years later, did they suggest that Americans would be guaranteed any particular status or outcomes in life.

Our country was created as that beacon on the hill to everyone in the world who wished to seek freedom and escape tyranny and oppression.  Our Founders were greatly influenced by the work of Cicero who wrote passionately on the need for a nation to welcome immigrants in order to be enriched by their contribution.  There is nothing, however, in the Constitution that indicates that we are required to let in anyone, pay for everyone, and neglect the physical and financial security of American citizens in the process. Constitutional-based arguments to open our borders are sophistry.

Finally, nothing in our Constitution creates a mandate for us to try to establish its structure and principles elsewhere.  While our Founders may have hoped their ideas could find fertile soil elsewhere in the world, those ideas were meant to be exported only through choice and not through our imposition and force.  Repeated calls throughout our history to “spread democracy” (which is not our system in the first place) are without foundation.  Our duty is to preserve our nation and protect our citizens.  Our best hope to shine our light elsewhere is to first focus it intently upon ourselves.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

The results of that Gallup poll may reflect the fact that people have largely lost track of what it means to be an American.  Being an American has been turned into an existential abstract as opposed to a clear definition of objective ideas.  It is impossible to be extremely proud of being something without understanding what the something is.

Fortunately, America is easy to understand because its definition is in writing.  Perhaps on this Constitution Day you will pick up a copy of the Constitution and “refresh.”  Regardless, Celebrate the day and celebrate your country.  Replace the imagined with the real and appreciate that 232 years later, this remains the greatest nation ever designed.

Corey Lewandowski Refuses To Answer Questions At House Hearing

Westlake Legal Group 5d812312240000c92b7d166f Corey Lewandowski Refuses To Answer Questions At House Hearing

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski refused to answer basic questions at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Democrats on the committee asked Lewandowski simple questions about his interactions with President Donald Trump as part of their probe into the possible impeachment of the president. 

“The White House has directed me not to disclose any conversations I’ve had with the president,” Lewandowski said.

In a written notice to the committee, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Lewandowski could not speak about conversations he had with Trump during his time in office or with Trump’s advisers and was only directed to testify about his time working on the Trump campaign.

“The White House has directed Mr. Lewandowski not to provide information about such communications beyond the information provided in the portions of the [Mueller] Report that have already been disclosed to the Committee,” the letter said.

The White House claimed Lewandowski was “protected” by executive privilege even though he has never worked in the executive branch.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) kicked off questioning during Tuesday’s hearing by asking Lewandowski whether he met with Trump alone in the Oval Office on June 19, 2017, as noted in the Mueller report.

Instead of answering yes or no, Lewandowski insisted on being provided with a copy of the report to reference the specific language pertaining to that alleged meeting.

“You’re not answering the question,” Nadler said at one point.

During questioning by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Lewandowski again repeatedly avoided giving direct answers to questions. Instead, he asked to be provided with portions of the Mueller report Lee was referencing ― even though the language was projected on a giant screen. 

“I will not disclose any conversation I’ve had with the president,” Lewandowski said. “I am respecting the executive branch privilege of confidentiality,” he added, noting: “I recognize the privilege is not mine.”

Lee accused Lewandowski of “stalling.”

“You are obviously here to block any reasonable inquiry into the truth or not of this administration,” the congresswoman said.

Lewandowski responded by calling her statements a “rant.”

Trump tweeted his praise of Lewandowski during the hearing on Tuesday, calling the former aide’s opening testimony “beautiful.”

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade deletes vulgar Instagram post

Westlake Legal Group olivia-jade-giannulli-cellphone Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade deletes vulgar Instagram post Jessica Sager fox-news/person/olivia-jade fox-news/person/lori-loughlin fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc c4f66662-8ca9-50a0-b60c-092a566c051d article

Lori Loughlin‘s daughter Olivia Jade deleted an Instagram post in which she flipped the bird at the media amid her mom’s college admissions scandal.

Last month, the 19-year-old beauty vlogger held both her middle fingers in the air like she just didn’t care.

She captioned the snapshot, “@dailymail @starmagazine @people @perezhilton @everyothermediaoutlet #close #source #says.”

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY TERRIFIED DAUGHTERS MAY HAVE TO TESTIFY IN COURT

Her sister Bella commented at the time, “Not over you and this. QUEEN.”

While no reason was given for her removal of the flippant post, it may have to do with Felicity Huffman‘s prison sentence.

Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days behind bars after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May.

LORI LOUGHLIN WAS ‘OBSESSED’ WITH GETTING DAUGHTERS INTO USC, REPORT CLAIMS

The “Desperate Housewives” star admitted to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She wrote that she’d considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

Huffman must also perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

FELICITY HUFFMAN ON COLLEGE SCAM: ‘NO EXCUSES OR JUSTIFICATIONS’

Based on Huffman’s fate, Loughlin’s brood may be starting to take their own situation more seriously.

Loughlin, 55, and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to alleged scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the University of Southern California’s crew team despite neither girl ever being a rower. USC put the girls’ enrollment statuses on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY KEEPING CLOSE EYE ON FELICITY HUFFMAN’S CASE, FEARS BEING ‘PENALIZED FOR HER FAME’ IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Giannulli and Loughlin refused the plea deal that other parents in the Operation Varsity Blues case – including Huffman – accepted. Giannulli, 56, and Loughlin then were slapped with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and may face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted on all charges.

A source admitted recently that Loughlin regretted not accepting a plea bargain following Huffman’s sentencing.

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S LAWYERS SLAM ‘BASELESS ALLEGATIONS’ OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

“[Loughlin] didn’t understand the entire nature of the charges against her, and she wasn’t even sure if or how she had broken the law. It was very early, and she didn’t have all the information that she has now,” the source said. “Based on what she understood at the time, she made the best choice for herself. Now there is no deal on the table, and she has to have faith that the courts and the prosecution will move fairly and not make an example out of her.”

For her part, Olivia Jade rumored to be avoiding social media for a full year following the arrests of her parents, but she posted a tribute to mom Loughlin for the actress’ 55th birthday in July before posting the rude body language snap.

Following Loughlin’s arrest, Olivia Jade lost several endorsement deals, including sponsorships with Sephora, TRESemmé and Estée Lauder.
