Joshua Rogers: I was on national TV talking about my happy marriage—but my wife knew the truth

Westlake Legal Group img_2363 Joshua Rogers: I was on national TV talking about my happy marriage—but my wife knew the truth Joshua Rogers fox-news/opinion fox-news/faith-values/family fox-news/faith-values fox-news/entertainment/events/marriage fox news fnc/opinion fnc e84a44e5-466c-5d1c-adbb-7ebe8a496c6e article

It was 9:20 a.m. on a Monday morning and I was about to appear on “Fox & Friends” for an interview with Steve Doocy.

The interview happened after FoxNews.com published a piece of mine called “What happened when my daughter saw me kiss my wife” and it went viral. Two days later, I was sitting in front of a camera listening to Steve prep me for the interview.

JOSHUA ROGERS: I THOUGHT I WANTED TO MARRY HER, THEN SHE DID SOMETHING MY MOM HAD NEVER DONE

When the conversation began, Steve and I talked about the op-ed; but eventually, I shared how my wife, Raquel, and I had struggled for control during our marriage. I talked about the ways we had grown and then offered advice to the audience, encouraging them to take little steps to improve their marriages.

After the interview ended, the Fox News staff wished me goodbye and I walked out the door feeling grateful — not only because I’d had the opportunity to be on the show — but because I had gotten a chance to draw attention to the love of my life in front of national audience. Even so, my heart was heavy, and the further I got from the studio, the less upbeat I felt.

I was drowning in a sea of pain and grief. My dad was dying, I was wrestling with a chronic illness, and my kids were heartbroken that I was working late hours and seeing them less and less.

I felt so lonely and weighed down by the feeling that nobody could understand what I was going through — that is, nobody but Raquel. She had been standing by my side for months, constantly reminding me that God was at work in all of the pain.

In my book, “Confessions of a Happily Married Man,” I describe what was going on in my heart at the time:

It was rather surreal. There I was, suspending my depression for five minutes to talk about how Raquel and I had released control so that we could grow as a couple. Five miles away, Raquel was watching, knowing just how much control I had released by dropping my guard completely with her. Behind the smile and the makeup, she knew me — the real me.

Raquel loved me for who I was, and at the time, I was often a depressing person to be around. She didn’t run from my pain though — she didn’t run from me.

I’ve wondered all of my life what it would be like to be in the presence of Jesus, and during those months of grief and depression, Raquel offered a glimpse of Him. I looked in her eyes and saw His faithfulness and compassion. I heard the echoes of His voice every time she said, “Don’t give up. The Lord is with you in this, Joshua.”

When couples stand at the altar and take their vows, the euphoria of the moment numbs them to the magnitude of their promises. Then real life happens. It calls us to make good on our promise to love “for better or worse,” to let go of what we hoped marriage would be — to know and be known for who we are, including the burdens we bring into our homes.

Perhaps you feel as though your spouse doesn’t understand your inner world. But what if your spouse is the one who feels unknown and isolated? You can set the example and demonstrate what it means to show love in the midst of the heaviness of day-to-day life. It would take so little.

Maybe you could give a heartfelt compliment, offer physical affection when you don’t feel like it, buy an unexpected gift or just ask, “How are you really doing?” There’s infinite value to that kind of affection and it’s because you’re the one who’s offering it.

Nobody knows your spouse like you do and that’s why your unconditional love means so much. It says, “I know you—all of you. And no matter how heavy your burdens may be, I’ll walk with you and help you carry them. Until death parts us, you’re never going to be alone.”

Kamala Harris, polling at 3 percent, hearing calls for campaign manager’s resignation

Westlake Legal Group kamala-Harris-1 Kamala Harris, polling at 3 percent, hearing calls for campaign manager's resignation fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article a6dac8f9-aba4-5d63-b230-279872832525

Sen. Kamala Harris, whose campaign cut staff in a dramatic restructuring last month, is now polling at just 3 percent, tying her with Michael Bloomberg for fifth place among the Democratic Party’s presidential nominees — according to a poll released Friday — even though Bloomberg hasn’t even formally announced his 2020 candidacy.

And now Harris may be facing another problem: A second report Friday described internal strife at Harris’ Baltimore campaign headquarters, with several aides calling for campaign manager Juan Rodriguez’s resignation following his late October decision to lay off field staffers in several states and dedicate Harris’ already dwindling campaign war chest to a seven-figure TV ad campaign before the February Iowa caucus.

KAMALA HARRIS SAYS SHE’S ‘ALL IN’ ON IOWA — DESPITE CAMPAIGN RESTRUCTURING, LAYOFFS

Harris and Bloomberg were deadlocked in a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted Nov. 12-14. Though not yet a declared candidate, Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and billionaire business and media mogul, launched a massive $100 million digital ad campaign Friday targeting President Trump.

In the poll, both Harris and Bloomberg fell behind Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., who polled at 6 percent, and Sen Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who polled at 13 percent. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led the Demicratic field tied at 19 percent support.

Rodriguez said in an Oct. 30 campaign memo obtained by Fox News that several dozen people would be laid off at the campaign’s Baltimore headquarters — as would volunteers in New Hampshire, Nevada, and California — in an effort to go “all-in” in Iowa. He also said the campaign aimed to dedicate $1 million to a media campaign in the weeks before the Feb. 3 caucus, a figure now considered unlikely given Harris’ lackluster funding.

Three additional staff members were laid off and another quit in recent days at Harris’ campaign headquarters in Baltimore, unnamed aides told Politico on Friday. They said several aides have approached campaign chair Maya Harris, the candidate’s sister, to force Rodriguez to step down, claiming his failed leadership is responsible for the campaign’s recent troubles.

One official said Harris’ current campaign structure has “No discipline. No plan. No strategy.”

“It’s a campaign of id,” the official continued. “What feels right, what impulse you have right now, what emotion, what frustration.”

But others defended Rodriguez, saying he’s been loyal to Harris even before she first announced her candidacy in June. They pointed fingers at Maya Harris, who shared leadership responsibility with Rodriguez.

“From the outset of this race, he has had all the responsibility with none of the authority. He’s been managing this race with at least one, if not two, hands tied behind his back,” a senior campaign official told Politico of Rodriguez. “He would never undermine her. He’s just not that guy.”

The Politico report cited 12 individuals – who were either current or former campaign staffers or donors – who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, Harris has been crisscrossing the country to try to salvage support. Her campaign has struggled to regain traction after an initial stand-out moment in the race during the first Democratic debate in June when she challenged Biden, a frontrunner, over comments he made about segregationist U.S. senators and school busing. Harris struggled in the second debate after Biden and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, challenged her record as California’s attorney general. She struggled to shine in subsequent debates.

ER doctor calls for kids to stop vaping, as CDC points to potential culprit behind illnesses

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-d5c6814ef940494ea7b358ac0f872a79 ER doctor calls for kids to stop vaping, as CDC points to potential culprit behind illnesses Matt London fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc article 92ac08c9-7461-5ef1-9fe0-bbc1f7c7d02c

At least 42 people have died as a result of vaping-related illness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said this week as health officials upped the number of confirmed and probable lung injury cases to 2,172 as of Nov. 13.

Additionally, for the first time, the CDC identified vitamin E acetate as the potential ingredient causing the illnesses.

Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, a family and emergency room doctor and frequent Fox News guest, also identified vitamin E as a concern.

“I’ve actually had patients, very young kids, teenagers, they come in and when I listen to their lungs, it sounds like you’re taking a piece of paper and crunching it together,” said Dr. Janette said on the latest edition of Fox Nation’s “Nuff Said with Tyrus.”

“A lot of us [doctors], we suspect it could be counterfeit, adulterated, tarnished, bootleg [cartridges]… maybe marijuana cartridges. But also it could be just the combination of you’re heating up the ingredients of artificial flavors, propylene glycol and glycerin and nicotine,” she said. “And if it’s laced with vitamin E or any type of oils, then it can act as a coating… like oil on your lung, and you can’t get air in and out and you go into respiratory distress, you end up in the hospital.”

On Friday, Apple announced in a statement that it was removing all vaping and e-cigarette-related apps from its company story store, citing, “risks to users’ health and well-being.”

“Vaping in teenagers is an epidemic and it’s growing,” warned Dr. Janette. “The number of teenagers in middle school who are vaping has doubled. And I think a lot of them don’t realize that it contains nicotine, which is highly addictive, and that it can cause potential harm to their lungs and it can interfere if they participate in sports.”

“But on top of that,” she added, “the studies show from the CDC that about half of these kids that vape, about half of them will go on in and about a year to become regular cigarette smokers. And smoking is responsible for about 500,000 deaths every year and leads to heart attacks and stroke.”

Dr. Janette described treating one patient, who seeming had the symptoms of an asthma sufferer.

“I said, oh, do you have asthma? And he said, ‘No’ and he told me he was vaping and he was scared, but he was having trouble breathing. He was coughing and wheezing. I had to put him on steroids and give him breathing treatments. I had to do X-rays. And I said, ‘Look, we gotta cut out the vaping because this is causing harm to your lungs.’

“I think the focus right now is we need to get these kids off of the vaping,” she concluded. “We need to educate them – have their parents, educate them to prevent it… everyone needs to be careful and know what you’re inhaling.”

Kin to Michael Brown, Marine deserter accused of killing mom’s boyfriend: ‘Please, turn yourself in’

The mother and grandmother of Michael Brown, a decorated U.S. Marine now on the run after allegedly killing his mother’s boyfriend in Virginia, pleaded with him Friday to turn himself in.

“Please trust us when we tell you to trust the authorities and turn yourself in,” his grandmother, Diane Hanson, told Roanoke’s WFXR-TV.

Brown, 22, allegedly deserted his post at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina last month after he was accused in the shooting death of Rodney Brown on Nov. 9.

CAR OF MARINE LINKED TO VIRGINIA SLAYING IS FOUND IN SOUTH CAROLINA, AUTHORITIES SAY

On Friday, authorities in North Roanoke cleared a search area after investigating a report of a possible sighting of Brown walking along train tracks. But authorities said they could not confirm Brown was in the area, WSLS-TV of Roanoke reported.

Also on Friday, the U.S. Marine Corps confirmed that Brown was considered a deserter, WDBJ-TV of Roanoke reported. A Marine Corps spokesman told the station Brown did not show up for duties Oct. 24, was listed as AWOL the next day, and was declared a deserter Nov. 10, the day after Rodney Brown was killed.

Michael Brown, 22, left, is wanted in the shooting death of Rodney Brown, 54, authorities say.

“I don’t want you hurt, please,” his mother, Vanessa Hanson, said.  “Michael you’re my baby I love you please I can’t lose you. I’m scared for you.”

Brown’s car was found in South Carolina last week, authorities said Wednesday.

Several agencies in North Carolina and Virginia — in addition to the U.S. Marshals, FBI, and Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) have been conducting a massive manhunt for him.

His mother went on to say they would help him get a lawyer if he turned himself in.

“I can’t lose another person,” she added.

“Michael I know that you’re alone and afraid right now but there are people who want to help you,” his grandmother told WFXR. “We still care about you. Please turn yourself in. Nobody wants to see you die also.”

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia Monday issued a warrant for Brown’s arrest on second-degree murder charges.

Authorities were still working to determine a motive. Neighbors told WSLS the Marine recently learned Rodney Brown was not his biological father. He reportedly believed his mother’s boyfriend was his biological father for his entire life.

Authorities said Brown should be considered “armed and dangerous.”

Sean “Diddy” Combs is honoring his late ex, Kim Porter.

The 50-year-old musician shared a video on Instagram of Porter, a model and actress, playing the piano as a dog barks along.

“I MISS YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. So much 💔,” the caption reads. “Every time I get sad I look at this video and it brings a smile to my face. I THANK GOD FOR THE PRECIOUS TIME HE ALLOWED US TO HAVE WITH YOU.”

Porter died Nov. 15, 2018, of lobar pneumonia. In 1994, Diddy adopted Porter’s then-3-year-old son, Quincy, who is now 28.

Maher panics, says Nikki Haley has gone ‘full-on Team Deplorable’: ‘This is so scary to me’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-HBO Maher panics, says Nikki Haley has gone 'full-on Team Deplorable': 'This is so scary to me' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 36c70905-1600-53bd-a64a-610a344f796b

“Real Time” host Bill Maher sounded the alarm Friday night in reaction to former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s repeated defense of President Trump during the launch of her book tour.

“I thought she was one of the more reasonable ones,” Maher began, referring to Haley, author of the newly released, “With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace.”

“She kind of acquitted herself at her job at the U.N.,” Maher added. “She went full-on Team Deplorable this week.”

Maher then played clips of Haley’s recent interviews, in which the Republican former South Carolina governor claimed that Trump had always been “truthful” to her and defended her former boss amid the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

MAHER ASKS IF COUNTRY WILL HAVE ‘INVESTIGATION FATIGUE’ AFTER FIRST WEEK OF IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS

“Show me the proof,” Haley has said, challenging Democrats and other critics to produce evidence that Trump did something wrong in his interactions with Ukraine.

“This is the scariest thing this week,” Maher said, “because this is somebody who is betting that there is no more Republican-Classic Party, there is only Trump, and she thinks, ‘Well, after he’s gone, I’ll be able to rejoin polite society. But when you do this, you’re destroying polite society. This is so scary to me.”

Maher went on to predict that the 2024 GOP nominee will be Donald Trump Jr., which sparked laughter from the audience.

“Yeah, they laughed when I said Trump would win too,” Maher told the panel in complete seriousness. “Because that’s what Third World dictators do.”

Mark Levin blasts ‘absurd’ media analysis of impeachment hearings: ‘It’s disgraceful … They sound like the Russian media’

Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin took aim at House Democrats and the media Friday in response to the televised impeachment inquiry testimony by former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanavich.

“I hope the American people know what you’re witnessing is tyranny,” Levin said on “Hannity.” You can have tyranny of the legislature. You can have tyranny of the executive branch. You can have tyranny of the judiciary. You’re witnessing tyranny in the House of Representatives, in the Intelligence Committee, that doesn’t do intelligence work anymore.”

Levin compared the American media to Russian media and accused them of being unfair to President Trump.

TRUMP ATTACKS MARIE YOVANOVITCH DURING IMPEACHMENT HEARING, SAYS EVERYWHERE SHE WENT ‘TURNED BAD’

“I mean … to listen to the media analysis of what’s taking place in these hearings is absurd. It’s disgraceful,” Levin said. “They talk about Russia. They sound like the Russian media.”

The host defended the president’s tweet during the hearing saying it’s the only way to combat the press, which is targeting him.

Yovanovitch delivered a dramatic personal account Friday of her ouster as America’s Ukraine ambassador amid a campaign against her by Trump associates, but the testimony was largely overshadowed by a snowballing fight over a presidential tweet that attacked her record.

“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him,” Trump tweeted Friday. “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”

“So the president’s never going to get a break from the media. So he tweets,” Levin said. “President’s not allowed to tweet to defend himself. Well, then he can’t defend himself.”

“You name one newsroom in this country … that’s calling it straight here,” Levin added, “None of them.”

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mason Rudolph declines to file criminal charges against Cleveland Browns’ Myles Garrett

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph said Friday he will not press criminal charges against Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, deferring to the National Football League all decisions regarding disciplinary action against the player who struck him in the head with his own helmet during Thursday night’s game.

“#Steelers QB Mason Rudolph won’t take legal action against #Browns DE Myles Garrett after last night’s melee, source said. Rudolph considers the situation to be exclusively an NFL matter,” Ian Rapoport, an NFL insider and host of “RapSheet,” wrote on Twitter.

CLEVELAND BROWNS’ MYLES GARRETT SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY AFTER BRAWL WITH STEELERS, TEAMS FINED $250G EACH

Rudolph, 24 — who became the Steelers’ starting quarterback earlier this season after Ben Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending elbow injury — said he was feeling OK after the hit with the helmet and was “good to go” for Pittsburgh’s next game, Nov. 24 at Cincinnnati, ESPN reported.  But he had strong words regarding Garrett’s action.

“I thought it was cowardly and bush league,” Rudolph said. “There is plenty of tape out there to watch. I haven’t seen it yet. I don’t know what the rules are. I know it was bush league and a total coward move on his part. It’s OK, I’ll take it. I’m not going to back down from any bully out there. We will see what happens.”

The blow to the head was a particular concern because Rudolph had been briefly hospitalized in October after taking a blow to his head during a game against the Baltimore Ravens. The third-quarter hit knocked Rudolph out cold and left some of his Steelers teammates emotional as he lay motionless on the field.

In Thursday’s game, Rudolph had just completed a short pass to running back Trey Edmunds when he was tackled by Garrett. While on the ground, Rudolph appeared to try and grasp Garrett’s helmet. The two then got into a scuffle which ended with Garrett removing Rudolph’s helmet and hitting him with it.

Garrett, 23, was suspended indefinitely at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and postseason, the NFL said in a statement Friday, for his role in the ugly brawl with the Steelers, in a game that Cleveland won 21-7.

He must also meet with the commissioner’s office prior to a decision on his reinstatement, the NFL said. He was fined an undisclosed amount. The league also fined the Browns and the Steelers $250,000 each over the incident. Garrett also apologized to “Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and to the NFL” in a statement Friday.

Garrett’s teammate Larry Ogunjobi and Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were also suspended and fined. Ogunbjobi received a one-game ban without pay and an undisclosed fine for shoving Rudolph during the out-of-control melee. Pouncey received a three-game suspension and was fined an undisclosed amount for “fighting, including punching and kicking an opponent.”

Pouncey then entered the skirmish and punched and kicked Garrett in the helmet. Garrett, Ogunjobi and Pouncey were all ejected.

Bill Maher says Trump impeachment hearings could give voters ‘investigation fatigue’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-season-17-4-HBO Bill Maher says Trump impeachment hearings could give voters 'investigation fatigue' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a8d692e3-6569-573a-b717-934c71636319

“Real Time” host Bill Maher wondered Friday night whether this week’s televised Trump impeachment hearings could cause “investigation fatigue” to set in among the public.

The House of Representatives held two open-door hearings into President Trump‘s conduct with Ukraine, with U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent testifying Wednesday and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testifying Friday.

Maher kicked off the panel discussion on Friday’s show by suggesting there was a lack of interest in the latest impeachment developments.

MAHER WARNS DEMS PURSING IMPEACHMENT: THE COUNTRY WILL BE ‘PARALYZED FOR A LONG TIME’

“So 81 percent of the people in America have made up their minds about impeachment, 13 million watched, so we’re not doing this for a helluva lot of people,” Maher said. “And I think a lot of the people who are watching think this is the impeachment trial, you know? And I worry that, OK, we went through this once when the transcripts came out, when we first heard the story, those of us who were following it. Now we’re going through it again with [the] impeachment inquiry, then we’ll go through it again with the trial.

“It’s three times with the same people, the same story. Do you worry that maybe we’re going to match Trump fatigue with investigation fatigue?”

This isn’t the first time the liberal host suggested that the pursuit of impeachment could backfire on Democrats. Earlier this month, Maher warned Democrats that impeaching Trump was a “loser” issue in swing states, according to polls.

“Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona — those are the states that’s going to decide this election,” Maher said. “Impeachment? Fifty-three percent oppose in those states. It’s a loser where this election is going to be decided.”

But he added: “I’m not saying we shouldn’t do it.”

Back in September, Maher predicted the impeachment process would “paralyze” the country “for a long time.”

“If we do this, the country is going to be paralyzed,” Maher said at the time. “I’m not saying don’t. … It’s going to be paralyzed for a very long time and all of the oxygen in the room will be taken by this.”
