Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: 9/11 made me want to ‘dedicate my life to keeping the American people safe’

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, explained to Fox News Wednesday why the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, spurred her to serve her country.

Gabbard, 38, said Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” she was one of many Americans making the 18th anniversary of the attacks.

“Like so many Americans, it was this event that made me decide in my own life that I wanted to dedicate my life to keeping the American people safe — to finding and defeating those who attacked us on that day and to protecting our freedoms,” she said.

Gabbard recalled serving in the Hawaii state legislature and making the decision to join the armed forces.

WHO IS TULSI GABBARD? WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

“This is something that continues to inspire me today,” she added.

Discussing how her foreign policy ideology has been shaped in the years since, Gabbard said Americans must recognize how their leaders too often have failed to take the correct actions abroad.

“We’ve got to recognize how much our leaders have failed us. Where instead of focusing pointedly on defeating Al Qaeda and its affiliates and offshoots, instead they went and started waging a series of regime change wars in places like Iraq and Libya and the ongoing regime-change war in Syria,” she said.

“Now this has cost our country trillions of taxpayer dollars. We have lost thousands of American lives in these wars, my brothers and sisters in uniforms, not to speak of the countless lives lost in these other countries in the Middle East. And where do we find ourselves today?”

“Al Qaeda is stronger now than they were on 9/11. This is the result that we have.”

Gabbard joined the Hawaii Army National Guard in 2003. The following year she stepped down from her position in the state’s House of Representatives to deploy overseas.

She served in combat zones in Iraq between 2004 and 2005. She deployed again in 2009 to Kuwait, where she lead a platoon.

For her service, Gabbard has been awarded the Meritorious Service Medal and became the first woman to receive honors from the Kuwait National Guard.

Illinois teen wakes up thinking each day is June 11: ‘It’s like a movie’

Westlake Legal Group doctor-consulting-iStock Illinois teen wakes up thinking each day is June 11: 'It's like a movie' Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/health/nervous-system-health/head-injury fox-news/health/medical-mysteries-marvels fox news fnc/health fnc article 73ef3080-fd4c-5bdf-82a9-11f62de5df82

An Illinois teenager wakes up every day thinking it’s June 11, 2019, the day she suffered a traumatic brain injury. Two hours later, her memory resets, and she’s back to where she started when she woke up.

This is not a remake of the 1993 movie “Groundhog Day.” It’s Riley Horner’s life.

“I have a calendar on my door and I look and it’s September and I’m like ‘Woah’,” Horner told WQAD.

COLORADO WOMAN, 24, IN HEART FAILURE CREATES BUCKET LIST 3RD TRANSPLANT IS DENIED 

On that fateful June 11, Horner was accidentally kicked in the head by a fellow student who was crowd-surfing during a dance. At first, her doctors simply dismissed it as a concussion and sent her home on crutches. But today, her condition remains a medical anomaly.

Horner has suffered through dozens of seizures and countless hospital visits but doctors keep repeating there is nothing medically wrong with her.

“They can’t see anything. You can’t see a concussion though on an MRI or a CT scan. There’s no brain bleed, there’s no tumor,” Horner’s mother, Sarah told the station. “My brother passed away last week and she probably has no idea. And we tell her every day but she has no idea about it.”

PURDUE PHARMA REACHES TENTATIVE SETTLEMENT IN OPIOID LAWSUIT, BUT SOME STATES AREN’T ON BOARD 

“I know it’s hard for them as much as it’s hard for me. And people just don’t understand. It`s like a movie,” Riley said. “Like, I will have no recollection of [this interview] come supper time.”

Horner carries no acquired knowledge with her at the start of the next two-hour cycle. She even has to carry around all her school supplies with her at all times because she doesn’t remember where her locker assignment is.

“[Doctors] told us that she might just be like this forever. And I am not okay with that,” Sarah Horner said.

Riley’s family fears the clock might be ticking for the fate of her future, as Sarah said studies have shown after six months of short term memory the damage could be irreversible.

“We need help,” Sarah implored. “We need somebody that knows a little bit more because she deserves better. I mean she wanted to be in the medical field and now she can’t even hold a job if she wanted to.” Riley told the station she just wants anyone else experiencing similar synonyms to know they are not alone.

Alaskan Bush People” star Bear Brown and his fiancée, Raiven Adams, have called it quits, just two weeks after revealing they were engaged.

In a statement to People magazine on Wednesday, Brown, 32, said: “Raiven and I have made the difficult decision to part ways as a couple.

“She is a wonderful person and I will always care for her,” he continued. “Sometimes people are better as friends and that’s perfectly okay. I will always wish the best for her in life.”

According to the outlet, Adams, 21, and the reality star first met last year, but they didn’t start dating until a few months ago.

Brown reportedly popped the question last month on the family’s land in Washington — and in the same spot where the pair shared their first kiss.

“Raiven has been my best friend since [my brother] Noah’s wedding,” Brown told the magazine at the time. “She helped me a lot over the last year and I hope I can always be there for her the way she is for me. I love her. I never thought I’d hear myself say those words, but I do!”

Gen. Jack Keane: Trump should not use ‘Kissinger model’ to replace Bolton

Westlake Legal Group McCallum-split Gen. Jack Keane: Trump should not use 'Kissinger model' to replace Bolton fox-news/politics/executive/national-security fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 821e693a-bf38-5eaf-8abc-68dc68c2cb18

Retired Gen. Jack Keane said Wednesday that he would not recommend that President Trump employ the so-called “Kissinger model” to replace fired National Security Adviser John Bolton.

However, Keane told Martha MacCallum Wednesday on “The Story” that “I can certainly understand why” the White House would consider asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to also serve as National Security Adviser.

A source familiar with the conversations told Fox News earlier Wednesday it was unlikely that Pompeo would be asked to take on both roles.

The reference hearkens back to the 1970s when then-President Richard M. Nixon employed Henry Kissinger in both positions beginning in 1973.

TRUMP OUSTS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER JOHN BOLTON

Nixon later advised incoming President Gerald Ford to keep the now-96-year-old diplomat on his staff. Kissinger then held both posts early in Ford’s administration before being replaced as National Security Adviser by Brent Scowcroft in 1975.

On “The Story,” Keane said there has been a “fair amount of disruption” in the national security apparatus during the Trump administration.

More from Media

“Not so much the policies, but the development of those policies and the personalities involved in doing that,” he said. “The president is clearly no longer a journeyman in foreign policy and national security. He’s in the job. He knows where he wants America to go.”

Keane, Fox News’ senior strategic analyst, said Trump wants a “smooth sailing ship around him” and to “minimize disruptions.”

“Here, I think we had policy disagreements as well as personality conflicts,” he said. “I think both the president and John Bolton came to the same conclusion — he probably needs to get somebody else.”

Fox News’ John Roberts contributed to this report.

Clinic Ordered To Reveal Sperm Donor List After Baby Mix Up

Westlake Legal Group  Clinic Ordered To Reveal Sperm Donor List After Baby Mix Up

The now-divorced couple is trying to find out what happened to Drew Wasilewski’s once-frozen sperm. “They took it and it was defrosted. If they didn’t use it for this procedure they must have used it in some other procedure,” attorney David Mazie told NPR.

Wong Maye-E/AP

The New Jersey couple tried and tried to have a baby.

When they were unable to conceive on their own, Kristina Koedderich and Drew Wasilewski opted for artificial insemination through IVF, or in vitro fertilization. In 2013, after spending nearly $500,000, the procedure helped them realize their parenting goals with the arrival of a baby girl.

But when the child was about two years old, the couple, who are white, began noticing changes in her features. She looked Asian. A DNA test later revealed Wasilewski was not her biological parent, according to a filed lawsuit against the clinic.

Court documents say somewhere along the way the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science in Livingston, N.J., made a horrific mistake, impregnating Koedderich with the sperm of someone who was not her husband.

“It’s been devastating for them,” the now-divorced couple’s attorney, David Mazie, of Mazie, Slater, Katz & Freeman, told NPR.

“To go through all the shots, all of the treatments, spend all of that money, and be lucky enough to have a child but then find out it’s not 100% your child … it’s inexcusable. It should never happen,” Mazie said.

The institute did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Koedderich and Wasilewski say the clinic’s negligence caused “the breakdown of the marriage.” They are suing the clinic for unspecified damages.

“They also want to know,what happened to Drew’s sperm? They took it and it was defrosted. If they didn’t use it for this procedure they must have used it in some other procedure,” Mazie said.

To find out the answer to that question, Superior Court Judge Keith Lynott ordered the clinic to hand over a list of all of the men and women who used the facility around the same time as Wasilewski and Koedderich.

“If he has children, he wants to know. He wants to meet them,” Mazie said.

The attorney added that his clients also want to know the identity of their child’s biological father to learn more about her genetic history. According to the filing, the girl, who is now six, inherited a genetic blood disorder associated with Southeast Asian heritage.

When she is older, the girl may also want to develop a relationship with her biological parent “and she has a right to that,” Mazie added.

In a Facebook post, the Walnut Creek Police Department said a woman and her accomplice “worked in tandem” on Monday to steal the wallet in a local Safeway grocery store. Detectives asked the public for help identifying the two women and included videos of the suspects before and during the theft as well as when they left the store.

The video taken before the theft showed the victim, wearing a pink sweater, in an aisle, choosing what appeared to be deli meat. One of the suspects, wearing a baseball cap, approached the victim while she has her back turned.

The suspect was seen in the video looking around, then walking away. The suspect returned several times, each time looking at the victim, and then looking around. When a shopper began choosing items right next to the elderly woman, the suspect immediately walked away. She came back a short time later and followed the elderly woman as she left the aisle.

The entire time, a second woman was seen trailing the suspect in the baseball cap.

Georgia women charged after authorities rescue 43 pups living in ‘deplorable conditions’: police

Two Georgia women face a slew of charges after authorities found more than 40 neglected dogs – including seven with their bottom jaws missing – living in what authorities described as “deplorable conditions.”

Brandi Louis Marzka and Lynda Susan Cummings were arrested Monday after authorities discovered a puppy mill in Barnesville, about an hour’s drive south of Atlanta, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities began investigating the abandoned home after a citizen alerted the Towaliga District Attorney’s Office and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department,  Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

Deputies reportedly contacted Cummings after conducting a welfare check of the home. She eventually surrendered all the dogs to the sheriff’s office, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“No one was living at the house. She was periodically coming and checking on the dogs,” said Monroe County Sheriff Brad Freeman. “Obviously, because at some point they had had food and water.”

At least one Maltipoo puppy was found dead, according to the paper. The 43 other Maltipoo pups were rescued by the Atlanta Humane Society.

“For the majority of the dogs, homes will be found for them and they will be taken care of,” Freeman said.

The Society told The Journal-Constitution that the bottom jaws of seven dogs were missing entirely because of neglected dental care. Others were matted and some had skin or eye issues, The Journal-Constitution reported.

Cummings faces seven counts of maliciously causing physical harm to an animal by serious disfigurement and one count of maliciously causing the death of an animal – both felonies. Both women face 36 counts of animal neglect. They were booked into the Monroe County Jail.

An investigation is ongoing.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace uses 9/11 commemoration to attack Trump

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace commemorated the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in part by attacking President Trump.

Wallace, a former White House communications director under President George W. Bush, reflected on her experience as the U.S. was being attacked.

“I was in the WH on 9/11 -after 3rd plane [United Flight 77] crashed [into the Pentagon] we evacuated with the WH press corps on orders from the USSS [Secret Service] who pointed up and said “’they’re coming,’” Wallace tweeted. “We ran out the NW gate together-potential targets of terrorists.”

The “Deadline: White House” host then quickly pivoted to the current president and his repeated attacks against the media.

Trump delays tariff increase on $250B in Chinese goods for two weeks to Oct. 15

Westlake Legal Group AP19252683535418 Trump delays tariff increase on $250B in Chinese goods for two weeks to Oct. 15 Melissa Leon fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 93b73c59-99a6-5b3a-88be-f8178e4e2901 /FOX NEWS/WORLD/GLOBAL ECONOMY/Trade

President Trump announced late Wednesday that the U.S. will delay a planned tariff increase on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods for two weeks.

“At the request of the vice premier of China, Liu He, and due to the fact that the People’s Republic of China will be celebrating their 70th Anniversary on October 1st, we have agreed, as a gesture of good will [sic], to move the increased Tariffs on 250 Billion Dollars worth of goods (25% to 30%), from October 1st to October 15th,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Wednesday’s announcement came 10 days after the U.S. imposed 15 percent tariffs on about $112 billion of Chinese imports, the latest salvos in an ongoing trade war between Washington and Beijing. In total, Trump has imposed or announced penalties on about $550 billion of Chinese products, or almost everything the United States buys from there.

TRUMP ANNOUNCES INCREASED TARIFFS ON CHINA IN LATEST TRADE WAR SALVO

After Trump proposed tariff increases on billions in Chinese products in August, Beijing responded with increased tariffs on $75 billion of U.S. products. Trump called the move “politically motivated.”

“For many years China (and many other countries) has been taking advantage of the United States on Trade, Intellectual Property Theft, and much more. Our Country has been losing HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year to China, with no end in sight,” Trump tweeted Aug. 23. “Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of Fair and Balanced Trade that it has become a great burden to the American Taxpayer. As President, I can no longer allow this to happen!”

Earlier in the day, the president had “ordered” American companies to relocate back to the U.S. instead of doing business in China.

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing … your companies HOME and making your products in the USA,” Trump said.

“Because of the tariffs, we’re in an incredible negotiating position,” Trump said Aug. 30, “and we happen to be taking in billions and billions and billions of dollars.”

University of Maryland business professor Peter Morici recently told Fox News that tariffs aren’t going to affect the average American “as much as critics say.”

Even more tariffs loom on the horizon. On Dec. 15, the Trump administration is scheduled to impose a second round of 15 percent tariffs — this time on roughly $160 billion of imports. If those duties take effect, virtually all goods imported from China will be covered, including all major Apple products.

The Chinese government has released a list of American imports targeted for penalties on Dec. 15 if the U.S. tariff hikes take effect. In total, Beijing says Sunday’s penalties and the planned December increases will apply to $75 billion of American goods.

Fox News’ Gregg Re and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
