Mexican cartel massacre suspects arrested in attack that left 9 Americans dead, government says

A major military operation Sunday jointly carried out by three branches of the Mexican armed forces netted several suspects accused in the November massacre that claimed nine members of a well-known Mexican-American family believed to have been targeted by a drug cartel, federal authorities in the country said in a statement.

The federal attorney general’s office didn’t specify how many suspects were rounded up in the military show-of-force, however, local newspaper El Universal reported at least three were arrested.

It’s the third time the Mexican government has announced arrests in the case. In at least one of the previous cases, it was later determined those arrested were not linked to the massacre.

Nine members of the LeBaron family — who lived in a faith-based community in La Mora, northern Mexico and had dual U.S.-Mexican citizenship — were shot to death Nov. 4 by suspected drug cartel gunmen.

FBI JOINS MEXICO CARTEL AMBUSH INVESTIGATION INTO KILLINGS OF MOTHERS, CHILDREN

The six children and three women who died in the shocking ambush were part of a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located around 70 miles south of Douglas, Ariz. The family members were traveling on a remote dirt road in broad daylight when gunmen sprayed their three SUVs with bullets.

The first suspect, arrested near the U.S.-Mexico border a day after the killings, was determined not to be linked to the attack, despite reportedly being found with four assault rifles and two hostages bound and gagged in a bulletproof vehicle, Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo said at the time.

Then, in mid-November, authorities announced an undisclosed number of arrests related to the massacre amid competing reports about which cartel may have been behind the shooting and Mexican authorities’ apparent struggle to track down those responsible for it.

CONFUSION OVER WHICH DRUG CARTEL RESPONSIBLE FOR MASSACRE THAT KILLED 9 FAMILY MEMBERS

While it’s unclear which groups are the focus of the investigation, Mexican authorities have mentioned several cartels operate in the area, including La Linea, Los Jaguares and Jalisco Nueva Generacion. La Linea, the armed wing of the Juarez drug cartel, was initially believed to be involved.

The Mexican government has suggested the families may not have been the target of the attack, claiming the gunmen possibly mistook the families’ large SUVs for those of a rival gang. Officials have noted the ongoing, violent turf war between cartels in the region, however, some relatives of the deceased and at least one prominent former Mexican official insist the LeBaron family was hit by design.

President Trump called on Mexico to wage “war” on the drug cartels following the attack and vowed to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations, something some in the LeBaron community urged him to do.

‘Will & Grace’ actress Shelley Morrison dead at 83, remembered by co-stars

Shelley Morrison, the actress who was best known for playing Rosario Salazar on the hit NBC series “Will & Grace,” died at age 83 on Sunday, prompting the sitcom’s cast to pay tribute on social media.

Morrison died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles from heart failure after a brief illness, publicist Lori DeWaal told The Associated Press. She was 83.

On the original run of “Will & Grace” from 1999 until 2006, Morrison played Salazar, a maid from El Salvador, becoming part of a cast that won a Screen Actors Guild award for best ensemble in a comedy series.

The character, originally written for a single episode, proved so popular in her interactions with co-star Megan Mullally that she would appear in 68 episodes during the NBC series’ eight seasons.

“Rosario is one of my all-time favorite characters,” Morrison said recently, according to a statement and biography announcing her death. “She reminds me a lot of my own mother, who loved animals and children, but she would not suffer fools. It is very significant to me that we were able to show an older, Hispanic woman who is bright and smart and can hold her own.”

‘WILL & GRACE’ REBOOT TO END WITH UPCOMING SEASON

Mullally, who played Morrison’s boss Karen Walker, praised the actress on Twitter.

“My heart is heavy. putting shelley, her beloved husband walter & their children in the light. thank you for your friendship & partnership, shell. you accomplished wonderful things in this world. you will be missed,” she tweeted.

Eric McCormack, who starred as Will in the NBC sitcom, recalled Morrison on Twitter as a “beautiful soul” and wonderful actor. “Her work as Rosario, season after season, was as nuanced and real as it was hysterical,” McCormack tweeted.

Debra Messing, who starred as Grace in the sitcom, tweeted: “Oh, Shelley… what a loss. Our dear Rosario has passed on. Shelley had a career that spanned decades, but she will always be our dear Rosie. All my love to Walter and the entire family.”

Sean Hayes, who played Jack McFarland on the sitcom, wrote in an Instagram post that Morrison “was absolutely hilarious and had the biggest heart.”

Besides the opportunity to portray a strong Latina, Morrison valued “Will & Grace” for its breakthrough TV depiction of gay characters, said her husband, Walter Dominguez.

“Shelley’s greatest pride as an actress was in playing the indomitable Rosario, in a comedy series that furthered the cause of social equity and fairness for LGBTQ people. … She believed that the best way to change hearts and minds was through comedy,” Dominguez said in a statement.

Before “Will & Grace,” Morrison was best known in her more than 50-year acting career for playing Sister Sixto on “The Flying Nun” alongside Sally Field from 1967 to 1970.

She guest-starred on dozens of television series starting in the early 1960s, including “The Fugitive,” “L.A. Law” and “Murder, She Wrote.” Most recently, she voiced a character, Mrs. Portillo, on the Disney animated series “Handy Manny.”

Born Rachel Mitrani to Jewish parents from Spain in the Bronx, New York, in 1936, Morrison spoke primarily Spanish as a child. She was often cast as Latina characters, but she played a range of ethnicities in theater, television and film.

Her movie roles put her in casts with Hollywood’s biggest stars of several eras.

She appeared with Dean Martin in 1968’s “How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life,” with Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl” the same year, with Gregory Peck in 1969’s “Mackenna’s Gold,” with Shelley Long in “Troop Beverly Hills” in 1989, and with Salma Hayek in “Fools Rush In” in 1997.

Morrison is survived by her husband of more than 40 years.

Steve Bullock Drops Out of 2020 Presidential Race

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana, who argued relentlessly that his track record of winning in a deep red state made him the Democrat best positioned to beat President Trump in 2020, announced on Monday that he would end his presidential bid.

“I am suspending my campaign to become the Democratic Party’s nominee for president,” Mr. Bullock said in a statement. “While there were many obstacles we could not have anticipated when entering this race, it has become clear that in this moment, I won’t be able to break through to the top tier of this still-crowded field of candidates.”

Mr. Bullock, 53, was unable to overcome a late and slow start that hobbled his campaign. Democratic voters never bought into his argument that winning election in a state carried by Mr. Trump was sufficient evidence that he should be the party’s presidential nominee.

An aide said he would not challenge Senator Steve Daines, a Montana Republican facing re-election in 2020, as has been the hope of many Democrats in Washington.

Who’s Running for President in 2020?

Who’s in, who’s out and who’s still thinking.

Having started his presidential campaign without a national fund-raising list or much exposure outside his home state’s one million residents, Mr. Bullock failed to break out of the third-tier pack of candidates. He never registered more than 1 percent support in the dozens of polls the Democratic National Committee used to determine which candidates qualified for the party’s televised debates.

Mr. Bullock’s pragmatic message of Trump-state success didn’t catch on with the party’s donors, either. He had raised just $4.4 million by the end of September, a pittance for a modern national campaign. Former Representative Beto O’Rourke, who dropped out of the race last month, raised more on his first day as a candidate.

The failure of Mr. Bullock’s campaign illustrates how presidential primaries have been nationalized in recent cycles. Bill Clinton was able to rise from a small-state governorship to the presidency — in a race with a Republican incumbent — by concentrating on New Hampshire early in the 1992 contest. But Mr. Bullock, who focused on Iowa this year, barely got noticed by Democrats there, even though he is a popular two-term governor with accomplishments that included pushing a Medicaid expansion through a Republican-controlled state legislature — a task that delayed his entry into the race.

Even one of Iowa’s highest-profile endorsements, from Attorney General Tom Miller, could not move the needle for Mr. Bullock among Iowa Democrats, many of whom had been saying for months that they were overwhelmed by the number of candidates in the race.

Mr. Bullock flew from his home in Helena, Mont., to Des Moines on Sunday to inform his staff personally there that he was ending his campaign.

“I entered this race as a voice to win back the places we lost, bridge divides and rid our system of the corrupting influence of dark money,” Mr. Bullock said Monday. “While the concerns that propelled me to enter in the first place have not changed, I leave this race filled with gratitude and optimism, inspired and energized by the good people I’ve had the privilege of meeting over the course of the campaign.”

Mr. Bullock in May became the 22nd Democrat to enter the 2020 presidential race — and both the size of the field and his relatively belated decision to join it contributed to his exclusion from the first Democratic debate the next month.

Without that chance at exposure, he was forced to play catch-up. He focused much of his agenda on overhauling the campaign finance system and promised to make Democrats competitive in the country’s interior.

Mr. Bullock participated in the party’s second debate in July and introduced himself to voters, but he did not qualify for any other debates. He griped about his exclusion in his campaign’s online videos and to reporters, but said he was putting his faith in Iowa caucusgoers, not party officials.

“My expectation is it’s not D.N.C. rules that will decide this,” Mr. Bullock said after a September campaign stop in Manchester, Iowa. “It’s not nationalized, it’s folks here in Iowa that take this all very, very seriously.”

A Columbia University-educated lawyer who had served as Montana’s attorney general, Mr. Bullock made his name as a pragmatist who was able to win Republican support for liberal priorities. He was twice elected governor of a state that President Trump carried by more than 20 percentage points.

Mr. Bullock brandished those credentials on the trail, often reminding voters that he was the only candidate in the historically large field who had “won a Trump state.” He cautioned voters that the party’s leading contenders, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, were focused on issues like calling for a single-payer health care system that he warned would cost Democrats in a general election against Mr. Trump.

“Many of the issues that folks are talking about through this primary, they sound good through the primary, but I don’t know that that’s what’s going to be able to win this overall election,” he said in the September interview in Iowa. “I have grave concerns that we’re already on our way to losing this election.”

Mr. Bullock’s campaign was marked by cheeky publicity stunts and his regular calls for reducing the influence of money in politics. When Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, spent tens of millions of dollars on television ads for his own presidential campaign last month, Mr. Bullock issued one of his final campaign pleas.

“The Democratic primary isn’t for sale — and a billionaire spending hundreds of millions of dollars to buy an election isn’t going to fix our political system,” he said.

Seventeen Democrats are still in the race, and 11 have dropped out, including former Representative Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania, who ended his campaign on Sunday.

Term limits prevent Mr. Bullock from seeking a third term as governor, and some Democrats have held out hope that he will eventually run for the Senate.

The governor, however, has repeatedly said that he has no desire to do so. His spokeswoman, Galia Slayen, said Monday that Mr. Bullock would complete his term as governor and would not seek to challenge Mr. Daines.

“While he plans to work hard to elect Democrats in the state and across the country in 2020, it will be in his capacity as a governor and a senior voice in the Democratic Party — not as a candidate for U.S. Senate,” Ms. Slayen said.

Israeli PM Netanyahu must now decide whether to ask legislators for immunity in corruption case

Westlake Legal Group AP19328605653321 Israeli PM Netanyahu must now decide whether to ask legislators for immunity in corruption case Greg Norman fox-news/person/benjamin-netanyahu fox news fnc/world fnc c2738568-3d44-5aa4-8e2b-9386ca70c57b article

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has 30 days to ask his country’s legislators for immunity on corruption charges after a copy of his indictment was handed over to the Knesset on Monday, starting the clock on what’s likely to be a lengthy legal battle with immense global implications.

A three-judge panel is gearing up to hear the unprecedented case in Jerusalem district court, while Israel’s attorney general is expected to call more than 300 witnesses — including billionaires James Packer and Sheldon Adelson.

If Netanyahu asks Israel’s legislative body for immunity, however, the trial could be put on hold for months, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Israel’s attorney general Avichai Mandelblit announced last week that Netanyahu is not required to leave office following his indictment, even though several political leaders in the country called on the premier to resign.

In a statement released Monday, Mandelblit said Netanyahu can remain interim prime minister despite the fraud, breach of trust and bribery allegations, giving a small boost to the embattled leader.

Israeli law requires other public officials, including Cabinet ministers, to resign if charged with a crime but doesn’t explicitly state a prime minister has to leave office in those situations.

The allegations against Netanyahu include claims he accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in champagne and cigars from billionaire friends, offered to trade favors with a newspaper publisher and used his influence to help a wealthy telecom magnate in exchange for favorable coverage on a popular news site.

Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, has dismissed the charges against him as an “attempted coup” and is framing his legal battle as a witch hunt involving political rivals, the media, police and prosecutors, all pressuring a “weak” attorney general.

During the last hearing he was invited, on air, by one of the members of the committee to participate in the hearing. Trump even said himself that very week he may decide to testify.

Of course, despite all this the GOP and Trump turned around, even in the same day, to claim there was no due process. Whined about their own witnesses somehow being “Democrat star witnesses” because they can’t handle the truth. These people aren’t just corrupt and stupid, they are pathetic and obvious.

Deshaun Watson led the Houston Texans with four touchdowns in the team’s win over the New England Patriots on Sunday night and it was a big moment for the quarterback.

Watson was 0-2 against Tom Brady going into the game. The third-year quarterback said that getting the win, especially over someone he looked up to when he was younger, was a huge deal for him.

“You know, that’s my role model, a guy that’s been doing it forever,” Watson said, according to the team’s website. “[He’s been playing for] over 20 years, I’m only alive for 20 years, so it’s pretty awesome to finally get one and to just see the love and respect we have for each other and it was big. So, it was awesome.”

Watson also revealed the advice Brady gave him.

“He just, you know, congratulated me and said, ‘Keep going, stay healthy.’ You know, we’ve been in touch. We’re going to talk this offseason. And definitely, you know, a resource that you know he’s going to give an opportunity to check in and learn from him. I’m definitely going to take it.”

Watson was 18-for-25 with 234 passing yards and three passing touchdowns. He also caught a touchdown pass from DeAndre Hopkins in the fourth quarter.

Miami Dolphins’ trick-play touchdown ignites upset win over Philadelphia Eagles

With nothing left to lose amid a lost season, the Miami Dolphins showed some moxie Sunday by breaking out a trick play in their surprising win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Down six points in the second quarter, the Dolphins pulled a highlight-reel stunt on 4th-and-goal near the Eagles’ end zone.

The Dolphins initially lined up for a field goal but moved into a different formation with punter Matt Haack lining up under center Daniel Kilgore while the rest of the team was spread out on both sidelines.

Haack received the snap and ran to his left and as the Eagles defense was rushing him he flipped the ball to kicker Jason Sanders who was wide open in the end zone for the score. The Dolphins took a 14-13 lead into halftime.

J.J. WATT MIGHT RETURN TO TEXANS FOR PLAYOFFS: REPORTS

It was the play that ignited Miami’s 37-31 victory.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, the play was called “Mountaineer Shot.” It was named after Kilgore who was a center for the Appalachian State Mountaineers in college. Sanders was the first kicker to catching a passing touchdown since Jim Turner did it in October 1977.

“It’s exactly what we planned for,” Haack said. “That was pretty cool.”

Miami moved to 3-9 on the season, while Philadelphia dropped to 5-7.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock on Monday announced he was suspending his campaign for president and made clear he has no plans to run for U.S. Senate.

The 53-year-old Democrat, who has served as governor since 2013, said it has become clear he won’t have a shot at the party’s nomination to beat President Trump in the 2020 presidential race.

JOE SESTAK ENDS CAMPAIGN FOR DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION

“While there were many obstacles we could not have anticipated when entering this race, it has become clear that in this moment, I won’t be able to break through to the top tier of this still-crowded field of candidates,” Bullock said in a statement.

The campaign of the two-term governor, who is also former state attorney general, got a late start, as Bullock only announced his candidacy in May, trailing along dozens of other Democratic candidates vying for the nomination. He tried to make the case that he was the best option to beat Trump because he was the only Democratic candidate to win in a state that Trump won in 2016.

Bullock struggled to raise money and register in the polls, managing to meet qualification thresholds for only one Democratic National Committee debate in July. He said he was running for president to win back places Democrats have lost and end the influence of “dark money” in politics — concerns, he said, that have not changed.

The governor said he is leaving the crowded 2020 race “filled with gratitude and optimism, inspired and energized by the good people I’ve had the privilege of meeting over the course of the campaign.”

On Sunday night, Joe Sestak, a retired Navy admiral and former Pennsylvania congressman, dropped his bid for the presidential nomination, as well.

Bullock is the third Western governor or former governor to drop out of the 2020 race after struggling to build a national profile and donor base against well-known alternatives like former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper dropped out in August to run for the Senate. His departure was followed quickly by that of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who is seeking reelection.

Bullock’s spokesperson, Galia Slayen, said Monday that Bullock “plans to work hard to elect Democrats in the state and across the country in 2020 [but] it will be in his capacity as a governor and a senior voice in the Democratic Party — not as a candidate for U.S. Senate.”
