Rep. Jim Jordan: Dems ‘focused’ on impeaching Trump, ‘not going to stop at anything’

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, voiced his frustration with “the squad” Tuesday and reacted to the House of Representative’s vote to condemn President Trump’s controversial remarks.

“I mean they’re so focused on going after this president, so focused on actually getting to impeachment I believe that they’re not going to stop at anything even if it means breaking the rules on the House floor where there is a certain level of decorum that you must maintain,” Jordan said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

The House passed a resolution Tuesday evening condemning Trump’s “racist” remarks this weekend.  The moment was overshadowed by a dramatic floor fight earlier in the day that ended with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled out of order for a breach of decorum.

Jordan defended the president’s comments and his displeasure with the Democrat’s position on the border with Mexico.

“I think the president was expressing the frustration that so many Americans feel about what’s going on at the border. Understand this Martha, it was just a couple months ago when the president said this is a crisis and all the Democrats say ‘no, it’s not. It’s manufactured, it’s contrived.’ And they wouldn’t provide the money we needed to actually deal with the situation on the border,” Jordan said.

Jordan also blasted the four congresswomen, noting their past controversial comments saying it was difficult to work with them.

“These are the same people who said abolish ICE, abolish the Department of Homeland Security. I mean these are the radical positions they take,” Jordan said.

Ken Starr: Dems’ Trump impeachment calls becoming a first step instead of ‘last resort’

Westlake Legal Group McCallum-Starr-FOX Ken Starr: Dems' Trump impeachment calls becoming a first step instead of 'last resort' fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3be56f6a-2f05-58e9-9563-dab8d448a0fa

Some Democrats are trying to make impeachment the first recourse to express disapproval with President Trump, according to Ken Starr.

The Founding Fathers intended impeachment to be an emergency lever or sorts and not something invoked regularly against the chief executive, Starr claimed Tuesday on “The Story.”

“When you talk about impeachment, we are in a stage in our history when impeachment is becoming the tool of first resort instead of the tool of last resort,” he said.

“That is not what the founding generation wanted.”

DEM-LED HOUSE FORMALLY CONDEMNS TRUMP REMARKS DEEMED ‘RACIST,’ AFTER DRAMATIC FLOOR FIGHT OVER PELOSI

In the wake of Trump’s tweets critical of four freshmen progressive congresswomen, calls for impeachment have again arisen, including from Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, — who has previously introduced articles of impeachment — and two of the lawmakers called out by the president: Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

On that topic, the former independent counsel claimed Trump’s comments do not rise to the threshold of an impeachable offense.

“I don’t think so,” he said, adding he would let others judge whether or not the president’s comments were “racist.”

“Let’s put the impeachment talk aside. We know there’s not going to be a majority or much less a supermajority in favor of the impeachment of the president of the United States.”

Regarding the House vote earlier Tuesday condemning Trump’s comments, Starr claimed it was an appropriate action within Congress’ purview.

PELOSI’S REMARKS ON TRUMP’S ‘RACIST’ COMMENTS RULED OUT OF ORDER AFTER FLOOR FIGHT ERUPTS

“Express your disapprobation or your approval as the case may be,” he said.

Earlier Tuesday, veritable mayhem ensued on the House floor prior to the vote itself, with Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., calling for a “point of order” formally objecting to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks about Trump. Several minutes later, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., who was presiding at the time, “abandoned” the chair — in his words.

While Rep. G.K. Butterfield, D-N.C., assumed the chair momentarily, Pelosi’s deputy in Democratic leadership, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., eventually took the reins.

In the resolution’s vote tally, four Republicans — Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., Will Hurd, R-Texas, Fred Upton, R-Mich. and Susan Brooks, R-Ind. — joined Democrats in supporting Rep. Pelosi’s, D-Calif., resolution.

Additionally, Michigan Rep. Justin Amash — who recently left the Republican Party after himself calling for Trump’s impeachment — also voted yes. The rest of the Republicans voted no.

The unexpected tumult, which briefly resulted in the revocation of Pelosi’s speaking privileges on the House floor, left commentators and lawmakers stunned.

Marianne Williamson asked white people to apologize to black audience members on speaking tour for slavery, lynchings, other issues

Spiritual guru and 2020 Democratic hopeful Marianne Williamson asked white members of her audience at an event last July to apologize to black people also in attendance for slavery, lynching, police brutality and other issues.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Williamson opened a stop of her “Love America” tour by asking all white people in the audience to stand up during an opening prayer.

She then asked them to hold hands with black members of the audience nearby, and start by saying “I apologize.”

“With nearly 200 black people in the audience on their feet, Williamson apologized for slavery, lynching, murders, rapes of black women, destruction of the black family, mass incarceration of black men, being called the N-word and systemic and institutionalized racism and more,” the Houston Chronicle’s Joy Sewing wrote at the time.

And, based on video from other times, it seems as though Williamson asked audiences at other events to make similar apologies.

She also wrote a poem in 2016, titled “Prayer of Apology to African Americans.”

Williamson received lots of attention on social media following her big debut on the national stage during the first round of Democratic debates. In a recent New Hampshire poll, she ranked higher than Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ, and former congressman Beto O’Rourke.

Ambassador to Germany: Trump deserves credit for bringing Iran to the table, is open to cutting new deal with regime

Westlake Legal Group Richard-Grenell-Reuters Ambassador to Germany: Trump deserves credit for bringing Iran to the table, is open to cutting new deal with regime Nick Givas fox-news/world/world-regions/germany fox-news/shows/special-report fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 620546eb-e026-5bb7-8ba9-98156112dbef

The U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, discussed America’s strategy to push Iranian sanctions abroad on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” and said President Trump is open to cutting a new deal with the current Iran regime.

“First of all, let’s credit the president for bringing people to the table,” he said Tuesday. “The fact is… that we see it play out with Iran where the president has made very clear that he would sit down with this current regime and try to work through all of these issues.

“Not only the nuclear deal but the ballistic missile technology issues, as well as the malign activities. So I’m not surprised that the sanctions are working that President Trump put on and that the pressure that the Iranians are feeling are bringing them to the table.”

DAN CRENSHAW CALLS MAXINE WATERS’ IRAN COMMENTS A ‘DISGRACE,’ ACCUSES HER OF ‘REPEATING LIES’

Grenell said Trump’s goal was to establish an open dialogue between nations with the intention of achieving detente and claimed the “Trump doctrine” will cover both Iran and North Korea.

“That was the goal. That was the goal with North Korea, and we’ve seen the North Koreans come to the table. We’re hoping the Iranians will come to the table,” he said.

“Look, these are very difficult issues. There’s a lot to work through. We have a lot of specific issues that we’re going to have to sit down and talk. But the goal here is to bring the current regime back to the table so that we don’t have any more wars or military action that’s unnecessary. President Trump is putting diplomacy first and I think that’s what the Trump doctrine is all about.”

Grenell also talked about his discussions with high ranking Europeans in the public and private sectors regarding Iran and said European nations and businesses have the same goals as the United States, to deny Iran nuclear capabilities.

AMBASSADOR GRENELL: HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN SHOULD ‘CEASE TO EXIST’ IF THEY STAY SILENT ON ANTIFA ATTACK

“I talked to European CEOs and businesses all the time. They are complying with the U.S. Sanctions, that’s not a problem, that’s not an issue. We’ve made it perfectly clear that companies get to choose either Iran or the United States. They just don’t get to choose both. And I think they are choosing, when we make it clear that we are watching and that we’re going to follow up, they’re choosing to turn away from Iran,” he said.

“That’s the squeezing of the sanctions that are bringing the Iranians back to the table… we have multiple statements from the European foreign ministers making it very clear that they share the same goal as the United States, denying Iran a nuclear weapon and getting rid of the Iranian support for terrorism and ballistic missile pursuits.

“We share the same goal. We have a little bit different tactics, so my job is to communicate to the Germans and to make it very clear that we share the same goal, and we want to have their support in cracking down on Iranian regime money. And that’s what the sanctions are trying to do.”

Jesse Watters: Here’s why Trump probably hasn’t been told anything about Area 51

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Area51_AP Jesse Watters: Here's why Trump probably hasn't been told anything about Area 51 fox-news/us/us-regions/west/nevada fox-news/us/military/air-force fox-news/topic/aliens fox-news/tech/topics/us-air-force fox-news/tech/companies/facebook fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 7840f2ea-cfc1-5a60-a7e4-39340a131b9d

Ahead of a Facebook-advertised “storming” of Area 51, Jesse Watters considered whether President Trump has been told about what goes on at the secretive military installation.

If Trump is privy to top-secret information about the base, which has long been a point of discussion for conspiracy theorists who believe the facility holds government secrets about aliens and UFOs, it is surprising he hasn’t told the public, Watters said on “The Five.”

“I am surprised Trump has not slipped up about Area 51 yet,” he joked.

“The man cannot keep a secret. I don’t even think they told him about Area 51.”

‘STORM AREA 51’ SOCIAL MEDIA MOVEMENT IS ‘GETTING SOMEWHAT OUT OF HAND,’ SAYS UFO EXPERT

The “Watters’ World” host added Trump is often unusually open at campaign events — to a greater extent than past presidents.

“He’ll just let it go at a rally,” he said. “But if he has kept that secret, I am very proud.”

On Facebook, a page advertising the purported event went viral over the past week, as more than 1 million users responded they would go to the top-secret military installation on Sept. 20 at 3 a.m., with the creator writing “they can’t stop all of us.”

While it isn’t exactly known what the base is currently used for, Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post that Area 51 is where, “we train American armed forces” and “is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force.”

TRUMP’S’ OPINION ON UFOS: NOPE — BUT YOU NEVER KNOW

4 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE TOP-SECRET SITE, AREA 51

“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” McAndrews added. She discouraged civilians from visiting the area.

Regarding the base’s publicly-known history, Area 51 is a government facility in the Nevada desert near Groom Lake, a salt flat located about 120 miles north of Las Vegas. The site was chosen in the 1950s to secretly test the Air Force’s U-2 aircraft and train pilots, according to the CIA.

The area had earlier been used during World War II as an aerial gunnery range for Army pilots.

Employees take small, unmarked passenger planes from the Las Vegas airport to get to the remote area, according to Business Insider.

President Dwight Eisenhower approved the facility’s development in the 1950s, according to the CIA. The site was used by the Air Force to test the U-2 spy plane during the Cold War.

In 2013, the CIA acknowledged its existence, releasing its location and how it had been used to test military aircraft, including the F-117A, A-12 and TACIT BLUE, according to Business Insider.

Moderate Dem slams ‘squad’ for threatening to primary him: ‘They’re not Democrats … they’re socialists’

Westlake Legal Group Squad-Cuellar_AP-FOX Moderate Dem slams 'squad' for threatening to primary him: 'They're not Democrats ... they're socialists' Nick Givas fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 6af62057-fac7-5270-8248-e701e555ea50

Rep. Henry Cuellar D-Texas, responded to the threat of a primary from the four female progressive House members known as “the squad” on Tuesday and accused them of being socialists in disguise.

“I mean it’s this group called the Justice Democrats. I think they’re not Democrats quite honestly,” he said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

“They’re socialists and they want to impose their vision to Texas and we certainly know that in Texas our vision is very different from … what I call these Justice Democrats, which are really socialists. They’re not really Democrats.”

LISA BOOTHE: TRUMP’S SPAT WITH ‘THE SQUAD’ MAY BENEFIT HIM, DOES LITTLE TO MOVE NEEDLE ON IMPEACHMENT

Cuellar was referring to the four House members who took on President Trump in a Monday press conference, after engaging in a Twitter spat with the commander-in-chief. They are Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib D-Mich., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Cuellar said he isn’t the only Democrat to fall into the squad’s crosshairs and claimed some members are being targeted for their support of Israel. He also predicted most Americans wouldn’t side with the squad because their values don’t line up with most Americans.

“I do know that they are going after different folks, for example, they’re going after Juan Vargas… and the reason they’re going after him is because he has a very strong pro-Israel voting record,” he said.

“And that’s just you know, just amazing that they’re targeting him. They’re going after Jim Costa also. They’re going after Lacy Clay. They’re going after other folks. But again, their vision is not the vision of most Americans.”

TRUMP FIRES BACK AT SQUAD, CHALLENGES HOUSE TO ‘REBUKE’ THEM FOR ‘FILTHY AND HATE LACED’ LANGUAGE

Cuellar also praised the $4.6 billion bipartisan immigration package passed by Congress last month, which Ocasio-Cortez and Omar voted against. He said part of the funding will go to non-profits and churches, trying to help ease the crisis at the southern border.

“I was able to get that $30 million reimbursement for the nonprofits and the churches that are doing so much at the border. They’re putting money out of their pocket. So we were working with them. We got a lot of the language there,” he said.

“So when the bill came out I looked at it and that bill had a lot of things that we had looked at. When they say that there’s no protocols or no rules — that we gave the president a blank check — that is not correct because there are protocols that Homeland has.

“There are protocols that ICE has … there’s language that I have added there to make sure that we have transparency and protection for the migrant kids. And in … the Senate bill that came over, there’s even additional language there for protection. So there was no blank checks, a blank check written to anybody. And that’s why I supported that particular bill”

Ocasio-Cortez turns attention to Mitch McConnell amid ongoing feud with Trump over controversial comments

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., turned her attention to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., amid her ongoing feud with President Trump over his recent controversial comments.

In the broadside, the freshman Democrat said McConnell is “complicit in advancing racism” in the wake of the president’s remarks about four Democratic congresswomen — including Ocasio-Cortez — needing to “go back” where they came from. Three of the four women were born in America.

“The majority leader is complicit in advancing racism in America if he doesn’t even have the backbone to speak out,” Ocasio-Cortez told ABC on Tuesday.

Her comments followed days of controversy surrounding Trump’s tweets, provoking responses from politicians in both chambers of Congress. McConnell, on Tuesday, called on “everybody” to “tone down their rhetoric.”

PELOSI’S COMMENTS ON TRUMP’S ‘RACIST’ TWEETS RULED OUT OF ORDER, AFTER FLOOR FIGHT ERUPTS

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., similarly dismissed Ocasio-Cortez’s and others’ outrage surrounding Trump’s tweets as “all about politics.”

But according to Ocasio-Cortez, Trump’s words constituted a “classic line of white supremacy.” Trump’s comments appeared to unify, at least temporarily, Democrats and prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to adamantly condemn Trump’s comments on the House floor.

Before her comments, Trump attempted to tie the Speaker to Ocasio-Cortez and other freshmen in an apparent attempt to make the party seem more left-leaning before the 2020 elections.

Ocasio-Cortez similarly predicted the controversy could bode well for her party in the upcoming elections. “Honestly, if these members go on the record condoning the president telling women of color to go back to their own country, I invite them to because we will win the 2020 election and we will take this country back.”

Not everyone Republican refrained from condemning Trump’s remarks. Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, both denounced Trump’s comments on Monday.

“There is no excuse for the president’s spiteful comments –they were absolutely unacceptable and this needs to stop,” Murkowski tweeted.

AOC, Trump join list of celebs and social media stars as ‘most influential people on the internet’

While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Trump differ vastly in their political views, a new ranking highlights some common ground between the two.

According to TIME magazine, both are incredibly effective at influencing people on the internet. The two joined a slew of celebrities — including singer Ariana Grande and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex  — on the publication’s list of the “25 Most Influential People on the Internet.”

Other top influencers included conservative author Ben Shapiro, rapper Cardi B, and the Hong Kong protesters.

The list came just as President Trump and Ocasio-Cortez traded barbs on Twitter in what was perhaps their most heated and direct exchange to date. Trump’s online comments about Ocasio-Cortez and other freshman congresswoman ignited a media firestorm involving the most powerful members of Congress.

The incident provoked a speech from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Tuesday when she called on her Republican colleagues to denounce the president’s “racist” tweet about Ocasio-Cortez and others.

Earlier in July, Pelosi downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s influence by comparing her substantial Twitter following to the few votes she was able to get in opposing a bipartisan border funding package.

On Tuesday, both Trump and Ocasio-Cortez continued battling via Twitter as the latter accused him of being a racist and the former charged progressive lawmakers with hating the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez also sparked a prolonged debate about Holocaust references when she used Instagram to accuse immigration enforcement of housing migrants in “concentration camps.”

Trump has long used Twitter as his proverbial bully pulpit, directly attacking Democrats and even using the platform to break news about changes in his administration. As the president struggled to obtain funding for border wall funding, he continually blasted Democrats on Twitter for what he saw as inaction on immigration reform.

Trump’s border wall got a boost from Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, also on the list, who used the internet to crowdfund money for a southern border wall.

Vox writer Carlos Maza, another controversial figure in the Twittersphere, also made the list.

Bret Baier: Censure vote against Trump a ‘campaign commercial in the making’ for House Democrats

Westlake Legal Group Pelosi-BB-hetty Bret Baier: Censure vote against Trump a 'campaign commercial in the making' for House Democrats Nick Givas fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc f995bb2c-04ca-5f3e-846d-ef10f0d2bc77 article

Fox News’ Bret Baier said a possible censure vote in the House to condemn President Trump’s tweeting is a “campaign commercial in the making” for Democratic candidates running for reelection in 2020.

“All of these things — when these resolutions come up, it’s just a political maneuver so that the opponents can say that on this vote, so-and-so stood with what they’ll call ‘racist tweets. And it’s a campaign commercial in the making,'” Baier said on “The Daily Briefing” Tuesday.

“The same thing happened, actually, with the resolution to condemn the words of Ilhan Omar that got watered down in the House of Representatives.” he continued.

Baier was referring to Trump’s war of words on Twitter Sunday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and four of her freshman members, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib D-Mich., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

FLOOR FIGHT ERUPTS AS PELOSI SPEAKS AHEAD OF VOTE TO CONDEMN TRUMP’S ‘RACIST’ COMMENTS

Pelosi faced immediate backlash on the House floor when she attempted to persuade Congress to condemn Trump’s comments, in the form of a rebuke from Rep. Doug Collins R-Ga, who asked that her comments be “taken down.”

“Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down,” Collins said.

He also commented on the general push for impeachment and said the four progressive Congresswomen have not produced anything tangible to charge the president with, other than bad taste.

“I think there is a significant push [for impeachment] that you heard the four congresswomen last night talk about,” he said. “[It’s] not based on the findings of the Mueller report, but based on [Trump’s] character and they say it’s high crimes and misdemeanors but they don’t outline what they are. I think there is a push from Rep. Al Green and others to get that started right away. And Nancy Pelosi, after dealing [with] what she dealt with, with the four congresswomen, kind of putting them in a box — now they’re all together and they’re defending those four congresswomen. And I wonder if it will bleed over to impeachment.”

Baier also said the four women are playing into Trump’s hands as he attempts to brand the Democratic party as radical and extreme, ahead of the 2020 elections.

“The president, from the political point of view, really wants to have these four congresswomen be the face of the Democratic Party … He wants to see the Democrats rally around them and lift them up because of the controversial things that they’ve said do not sell well in a large part of the country,” he said.

“The way that he did that over the weekend with the tweets, obviously sent up alarm bells. Not only for Democrats but for some Republicans. And I think you’re seeing Mitch McConnell try and deal with that in his way, and I bet he’ll get peppered with questions about the president’s action since.”
