Raymond Arroyo: American pride should never diminish

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6054934653001_6054931284001-vs Raymond Arroyo: American pride should never diminish Victor Garcia fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5a6d8d6e-3dd2-59b1-a756-584d5a13cf73

Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo guest hosted “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday and gave a concise explanation on why pride in America has decreased in recent years and what America’s past will teach citizens as they approach the future.

“Obviously partisanship is accelerating this dwindling pride in the country and frankly it shouldn’t. No matter who’s elected president, no matter who’s calling the shots in Congress that should in no way disturb our love of country,” Arroyo said referencing a Gallup poll showing pride the country at an all time low.

“The freedoms we enjoy, the prosperity all around us, the liberty that we too often take for granted. Part of our problem is there’s so little that unites us today.”

Arroyo criticized those that have disparaged the founders and history of America, claiming that these actions have eroded the one thing that united this diverse nation.

“This was a republic founded on an ideal not blood or race but an ideal of freedom and self governance. It was predicated on morality and common purpose. But over the last few decades we have run down the reputation of the founders, disparaged even the founding itself and strafed our own history. Today we’re fighting over Betsy Ross’ flag,” Arroyo said, referencing a Wall Street Journal report that former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick asked Nike to shelve a shoe featuring the Betsy Ross version of the American flag because it was racist.

The Fox Nation personality argued that scrutinizing history would only further divide the country.

“This self-loathing to this destructive cultural crusade to strike the memory of any individual that fails to measure up to the shifting mores of the day will only further divide us and hasten our forgetting of self,” Arroyo said.

“History is made by human beings who are by their nature flawed and broken and admit their failings are great lessons that cannot and should not be forgotten.”

Arroyo said that what makes us proud to be American is overcoming our shortcomings.

“We owe it to our children to offer them the whole American story the good, the bad, the sins and the glory. How else will they learn how to avoid in the future or to emulate. And what to be proud of as Americans,” Arroyo said.

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria says Trump was right about asylum system, ‘pains me to say’

Westlake Legal Group Fareed-thumb-1 CNN’s Fareed Zakaria says Trump was right about asylum system, ‘pains me to say’ fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 525c7ec6-c3a6-5348-bb6b-78e350736847

Fareed Zakaria, the CNN anchor, on Sunday said it “pains” him to admit it, but President Trump was correct that the U.S. finds itself in a crisis with asylum system and the number of new arrivals.

The host of “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” was also critical of asylum rules that he called “vague, laxed and being gamed.” Zakaria said asylum was initially intended for a small number of people in the most extreme circumstances, not as a process of immigration in itself. He said the rules need to be “substantially tightened.”

He pointed out that “many” current asylum-seekers often have “suspiciously similar stories” and employ “identical phrases.”

“Democrats have spent most of their efforts on this topic, assailing the Trump administration for its heartlessness,” he said. “Fine. But that does not address the roots of this genuine crisis. If things continue to spiral downward and America’s southern border seems out of control, Trump’s tough rhetoric and hard-line stance will become increasingly attractive to the public.”

A  federal judge in Seattle on Tuesday blocked a Trump administration policy that would keep thousands of asylum-seekers locked up while they pursue their cases, saying the Constitution demands that such migrants have a chance to be released from custody.

The Justice Department did not immediately return an email seeking comment from the AP, but the government was expected to quickly appeal the decision.

Geraldo Rivera: Only reason Dems object to July 4th parade is because of Trump ‘hatred’

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera defended President Trump’s Fourth of July parade plans saying that the only reason anyone opposed the celebration is their “hatred” for the president.

“This is a symbol of the partisan toxic malignant atmosphere that we have in our country. When you see how Republicans feel about the country right now according to the surveys and the way that Democrats feel about the country now according to the surveys. It is amazing,” Rivera told guest host Dan Bongino on “Hannity.”

DEMS FUME AS TRUMP MOVES TO AMEND DC’S JULY 4 CELEBRATION, POSSIBLY ADDRESS THE NATION

“People on the left hates our president so much that they are willing to just put a negative spin on anything. How many times have you seen a flyover and an athletic event? Everybody loves them except for when President Trump is the one proposing them.”

Rivera said Trump had become a “synonym” for the country, argued that his visit to North Korea should be celebrated by everyone and told critics of the president to “get over themselves” and celebrate America’s Independence Day.

“The president went into North Korea, the first president ever. Everybody should be celebrating that but because this hatred of Donald Trump is so intense that he has become the synonym for the nation. I think it’s very distressing.  People should get over themselves,” Rivera said.

The correspondent-at-large told Bongino that veterans parades have great meaning.

“As a kid you watch those fourth of July parades, you get a tear in your eye watching the old veterans, the World War I guy and then the World War II guy,” Rivera said.

“It is a wonderful life affirming moments, and here we are making it a bunch of crap.”

Matt Schlapp: Bernie Sanders stands to ‘benefit’ if Biden continues to slip in polls

Westlake Legal Group BidenAP060719 Matt Schlapp: Bernie Sanders stands to 'benefit' if Biden continues to slip in polls fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 37b98e4f-d930-5442-8505-355e51a23750

Bernie Sanders has a lot to gain in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race if Joe Biden’s poll numbers continue to slip, according to Matt Schlapp.

While African-American voters continue to support Biden at the highest level of all other candidates, the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware still has a lot to lose, Schlapp said Tuesday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“In most of these polls, it shows the number two pick of Biden voters is Bernie Sanders,” Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, told guest host Raymond Arroyo, referring to the U.S. senator from Vermont.

“So what you’re really seeing is potentially African-American or black voters getting behind Kamala [Harris] while Bernie will benefit from some other voters if Biden continues to have shaky performances.”

TRUMP 2020 CAMPAIGN MANAGER: PRESIDENT IS ‘SET’ FOR FOUR MORE YEARS, CAN ‘BEAT ANYBODY’

Schlapp attributed Biden’s slip in the polls to his debate performance last week.

In that debate, Sen. Harris, D-Calif., confronted Biden about comments he made about working with segregationist former Sens. Herman Talmadge, D-Ga., and James O. Eastland, D-Miss.

Schlapp claimed Harris’s exchange appeared to double as a way for Harris to gain some ground among African-American voters.

“To me… it seemed like at some point, one of these black candidates was going to stand up and have the moral voice to try to pull these voters back,” he said.

Arroyo pointed to recent polling from Quinnipiac University, which showed Biden holding 31 percent support among African-American voters, Harris with 27 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., with 4 percent and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with zero.

Schlapp added he believed the nation’s economic performance under President Trump will ultimately unite voters no matter their racial or ethnic background.

“The idea that you have more economic opportunities is a big deal,” he said.

Trump 2020 campaign manager: President is ‘set’ for four more years, can ‘beat anybody’

Westlake Legal Group MacCallum-Parscale_FOX Trump 2020 campaign manager: President is 'set' for four more years, can 'beat anybody' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 3bfcf279-658b-5c45-83c9-76cdf2ac9f78

Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale isn’t worried about whoever emerges as the Democratic challenger next year and is confident the president will win four more years in the White House.

“I think the president could beat anybody. The momentum we’re seeing right now. I mean look… one hundred five million raised, a hundred million cash on hand. What we’re seeing overall the president success is overseas, the momentum behind this president right now is like nothing that history has ever seen,” Parscale said Tuesday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” dismissing Democratic presidential contenders Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg’s rise in the polls and campaign fundraising.

The Trump campaign announced Tuesday that its re-election operation raised a whopping $105 million in the second quarter, significantly more than Democrats have been pulling in.

A Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday showed Joe Biden at 22 percent, down 8 points from a prior poll in June. Harris, meanwhile, soared from just 7 percent to 20 percent in the latest survey, putting her in a statistical tie with the Democratic powerhouse. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren held steady at 14 percent.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN RAKES IN STUNNING $25M IN SINGLE DAY FOR RE-ELECTION LAUNCH

Parscale touted Trump’s success in his presidency so far, saying that will fuel his re-election.

“We’re not even in the main portion of the campaign yet where we’re already raising large numbers, this president in the voice he has, the message he can control, in the way he can control what’s happening on the media. No one can touch this,” Parscale said.

“And I think the president is set for four more years.”

MacCallum asked the campaign manager how the president would respond to the promises being made by Democrats including free college and health care. Parscale gave Trump red for correcting the Affordable Care Act and said the administration would have to talk about the “rising college prices.”

Parscale also said Republican and Latino voters looked “strong” for 2020.

“I think the Republican Party is in a strong position with Latino voters and other demographics. I think the Republic Party is on a straight course to more victories win back the House lead the Senate and have four more years of President Trump so I’m not worried about it one bit,” Parscale said.

Rep. Crenshaw: AOC ‘getting bolder with her lies’ about border crisis, refuses to offer illegal immigration fix

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., hasn’t told the truth about her visit to a border detention facility and refuses help alleviate the crisis, according to Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas.

Crenshaw then went a step further, claiming Ocasio-Cortez is one of several Democrats who want to see open borders, during a Tuesday appearance on “The Story.”

“It’s sad to see, she’s getting bolder with her lies on this,” he claimed.

“Now she is saying that border patrol agents harassed her and forced migrants to drink out of toilets? This is insanity. This is not true. There is no one else corroborating these kinds of reports.

OCASIO-CORTEZ REPEATS ‘CONCENTRATION CAMP’ COMPARISON, DESPITE CRITICISM OVER REMARK

“Yet, she is using it to try and make her case that we shouldn’t have any enforcement and that we should have open borders. This is really dishonest behavior from a member of Congress and I honestly can’t believe it.”

Crenshaw added he believed Ocasio-Cortez is not being forthright on the facts about illegal immigration and the influx of asylum seekers.

“People like AOC are operating off of a false premise, and it’s deliberately designed to misinform the American people for her political ends,” he claimed.

“First there was no crisis at all. Then it was a ‘manufactured crisis,’ then it was a crisis completely created by Trump, then there were ‘concentration camps,’ then people are Nazis.”

AOC CLAIMS WOMEN AT BORDER FACILITY BEING FORCED TO DRINK ‘OUT OF TOILETS’ AFTER TOUR

Turning to Democratic lawmakers writ large, Crenshaw said he does not see much interest in engaging with Republicans to fix the crisis.

“What they’re really doing is trying to stand on their moral high horse and sling arrows at everybody else while not offering a solution,” he said.

“They fought us tooth and nail against that $4.5 million in humanitarian aid the president needed, that DHS needed.”

He added Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, — who recorded video from inside the facility the lawmakers visited — should offer to house people who are detained instead of lamenting conditions at the border.

“Castro puts out this video, AOC talks about these things,” he said.

“I don’t see them offering up any space in their own homes. They are not offering a better solution… what they really want is ‘no enforcement’.”

Jesse Watters: Flag protesters like ‘bitter’ Kaepernick want ‘to divide the country and make everybody else feel miserable’

Ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s reported objection to Nike’s Betsy Ross-themed sneakers is the latest disturbing expression of anti-American sentiment, according to Jesse Watters.

Watters said the former quarterback, as well as others who protest the national anthem and object to outward expressions of patriotism, are trying to divide the country, on Tuesday’s “The Five.”

“I do think they want the end of the country,” he said. “They are trying to destroy the flag — trying to destroy the national anthem, the borders, the presidents.

NIKE DROPPED BETSY ROSS-THEMED FOURTH OF JULY SNEAKER AFTER COLIN KAEPERNICK COMPLAINED, REPORT SAYS

“Instead, we should be trying to have a conversation about improving the country, but all this does is divide it. And, that’s what Colin wants. He is unhappy with himself. He is a bitter man, and he wants to divide the country and make everybody else feel as miserable as he does.”

Additionally, Watters said the 31-year-old athlete further revealed himself as “anti-American.”

“When someone like this guy… can dictate to an American company to not celebrate our independence on July 4, we are in a really sad state,” the “Watters’ World” host said.

“I agree this country was flawed — it was founded on slavery and we fought a Civil War to end that stain — but that doesn’t define America, slavery.

“To say we just have to get rid of everything about this country, everything about the founding of this country because of slavery, that does not unite the country.”

Earlier this week, Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

Hickenlooper dings fellow Dems, says he raises less money because he won’t ‘promise free stuff’

Westlake Legal Group Sanders-Hickenlooper_AP Hickenlooper dings fellow Dems, says he raises less money because he won't 'promise free stuff' Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 50749636-a8a0-5a68-a23c-4fed4e448088

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper took a shot at his fellow 2020 Democrats, suggesting that his fundraising numbers were lower than theirs because they promised “free stuff” to voters.

“The bottom line is for a small campaign like us from a, you know — Colorado’s about 6 million or a little less than 6 million people — it’s harder to raise money because we don’t, we’re not promising free health care or, you know … free tuition for everyone, to forgive student debt,” he told MSNBC on Tuesday.

His comments came as leading Democratic candidates — like Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. — pledged to expand government’s involvement in health care and higher education.

Hickenlooper previously clashed with Sanders when he offered a speech denouncing Sanders’ version of “Democratic socialism.” He predicted that pushing socialism would help President Trump win re-election in 2020.

SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY: DEMS’ HEALTH CARE, GREEN NEW DEAL PROMISES RIDDLED WITH POISON PILLS THAT WOULD HARM US

During his Tuesday appearance on MSNBC, Hickenlooper refused to reveal how much his campaign made but said he didn’t reach the $24 million figure that Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg had announced. He argued that it was harder to get small donors with his message which he described as “a picture of this country — and what it could be in the future — that could resonate with everyone.”

He went on to say that ideas like Sanders’ were difficult to implement. Hickenlooper again warned against giving the impression that his party was socialist and specifically called out the “Green New Deal.” 

As Democrats started competing for the 2020 presidential nomination, the party faced an internal debate over how progressive it should be. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., appeared t knock frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden over what she saw as too moderate of an approach to environmental policy.

Biden, along with Warren, later incorporated Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal in their proposed environmental plans. Former Rep. John Delaney similarly faced pushback from Ocasio-Cortez and others when he pushed back on the idea that Democrats should tout “Medicare for all” before the 2020 election.

Former Obama top official defends migrant detention centers, says ‘cages’ not invented when Trump took office

Westlake Legal Group exobama-89304 Former Obama top official defends migrant detention centers, says 'cages' not invented when Trump took office Sam Dorman fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/politics/executive/homeland-security fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2965c422-ed01-5e4b-ab55-5401b7f91faa

Jeh Johnson, a Homeland Security secretary under former President Barack Obama, defended the use of holding facilities on Friday, indicating that immigration law put both President Trump and his predecessor in a tough situation for housing immigrants.

Johnson said that chain link fences or “cages” weren’t ideal but were one of the ways authorities dealt with a mass immigrants that had to be transferred to Health and Human Services (HHS) within 72 hours.

“During that 72 hour period, when you have something that is a multiple — like four times of what you’re accustomed to in the existing infrastructure, you’ve got to find places quickly to put kids,” he said before suggesting the alternative was putting them on “the streets.”

Johnson made those comments at the Aspen Ideas Festival on Friday after Congress passed a massive spending package designed to help improve conditions at migrant holding facilities.

DHS, CBP OFFICIALS PUSH BACK ON DEMOCRATIC DELEGATION’S CLAIMS OF GRIM CONDITIONS AT MIGRANT DETENTION CENTERS

Trump’s administration has received intense criticism for the way it treated migrant children — including putting kids in “cages” — but some have noted that migrants faced similar facilities under Obama.

“Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages — whatever you want to call them — were not invented on January 2017,” Johnson said, referring to the month of Trump’s inauguration.

Numerous reports surfaced in June, claiming that migrants faced inhumane conditions under the president’s administration. The issue came to a head after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., visited a facility and claimed that migrants were forced to drink toilet water. Current and former officials have since pushed back on her claims.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also called for federal authorities to face child abuse charges for the way they treated migrants.

“There ought to be criminal prosecutions of some of the agency heads and some of the people for child abuse. This is clearly child abuse. It violates probably half a dozen laws,” he said.

Republicans, however, have pointed out that their party pushed an aid package for migrants — something Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats seemed reluctant to approve. “How many migrant women did [Ocasio-Cortez] help by voting AGAINST the $4.6 billion bipartisan humanitarian aid that is FOR THEM?” White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted on Tuesday.

The U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell slammed organizations like the Human Rights Campaign for their silence in light of the attack on conservative journalist Andy Ngo over the weekend.

Ngo was videotaped being punched, kicked and doused with a milkshake by Antifa members during a clash between them and a right-wing group on Saturday in Portland. The footage did not show what led up to the attack or what followed, but there did not appear to be a police presence.

Grenell, a friend of Ngo’s, told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday that he believes Antifa targeted Ngo for his political affiliations, as well as his race and sexuality.

“They knew that he is gay, that he’s Asian, and that he is conservative,” Grenell said.

“We are now in a situation where the largest gay and lesbian groups have stayed silent, not only stayed silent, but their spokeswoman has tried to change it around to say he deserves this,” he continued.

The ambassador referred to the Human Rights Campaign, an organization which does not appear to have made a public statement about the attack on Ngo. Their press secretary, Charlotte Clymer, condemned the violence in a tweet to her personal Twitter account, but highlighted Ngo’s history as a provocateur.

“Andy Ngo intentionally provokes people on the left to drive his content. Being attacked today on video taken by an actual journalist (because Ngo is definitely not) is the greatest thing that could have happened to his career,” she wrote on Sunday.

“Violence is completely wrong, and I find it sad and weak to allow a sniveling weasel like Andy Ngo to get under one’s skin like this, but I’m also not going to pretend that this wasn’t Ngo’s goal from the start,” she continued.

Grenell called the comments “completely wrong” and insinuated that the organization is staying silent because Ngo is conservative and of Asian descent.

“This is an organization that demands to have a voice, and if they are not going to use their voice across the board in every situation when a gay person is bashed like this, then they should cease to exist,” he said.
