Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece rebukes Gillibrand on abortion: ‘Civil rights begin in the womb’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5991909726001_5991914059001-vs Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece rebukes Gillibrand on abortion: 'Civil rights begin in the womb' Sam Dorman fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/person/kirsten-gillibrand fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 101ab188-aff9-53aa-a255-8fe251906bcd

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., strongly rebuked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s, D-N.Y. comments comparing pro-life views to racism.

“I need for her to understand that abortion is a civil wrong,” King told “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday. “And of course, if you’re pro-life, you can’t be racist because you’re defending life for the most defenseless population on the planet — the little babies in the womb.”

She also accused Gillibrand, a 2020 presidential candidate, of “misleading” people and “advocating killing our youngest and our weakest people who happen to be in the wombs of their mothers.”

Gillibrand, during an interview on Tuesday, said that both racism and pro-life views were unacceptable and that abortion was a human right.

HOUSE DEM SAYS SHE’S TIRED OF ‘SO MANY SEX-STARVED MALES’ OPPOSING ABORTION

“I think there’s some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable,” she said.

“Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic. Asking someone to appoint someone who takes away basic human rights of any group of people in America—I don’t think that those are political issues anymore.”

During her remarks, she also said that “there is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom.”

King, who has expressed regret over her two previous abortions, said that Gillibrand was ignoring the science behind life in the womb. “Civil rights starts and civil rights begin in the womb,” she also told Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt on Wednesday.

9/11 first responder: Is the victims’ compensation fund where we want to plant the flag of ‘fiscal constraint?’

Westlake Legal Group Firefighters-FOX 9/11 first responder: Is the victims' compensation fund where we want to plant the flag of 'fiscal constraint?' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/terror/september-11 fox-news/us/terror/al-qaeda fox-news/us/terror fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz b98f4507-ea42-54ce-836f-a5202a15810b article

A hero firefighter who responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11 pushed back on concerns over the fiscal impact of funding victims’ compensation.

Firefighter Frank Licata praised comedian Jon Stewart’s statements before a House subcommittee and told Martha MacCallum on “The Story” any distress over budgetary impacts is unfounded.

“The other thing we heard, unfortunately, yesterday was the dollar amount – that we have a $22 trillion deficit at this time and going forward, ‘who pays for it?’ and ‘how will they pay for it?’,” Licata said.

JON STEWART BLASTS CONGRESS OVER 9/11 FUNDING HEARING: ‘DROVE ME NUTS’ THERE WERE EMPTY SEATS

“All I can simply say is, is this where we want to plant the flag of fiscal constraint? Do we want to plant it on the hill of the victim’s compensation fund?”

He and the other first responders joining MacCallum Wednesday agreed with retired FDNY firefighter Patrick Heffernan, who said Stewart “did a great job.”

Stewart blasted lawmakers who skipped the hearing, calling the event, “an embarrassment to the country and it is a stain on this institution” of Congress.

Licata added concerns about fraud within the program are also unfounded.

He pointed to his own father, who worked in Lower Manhattan and was diagnosed with several forms of cancer in the years following the terror attack.

The firefighter said his father delayed applying to the fund, but encountered many safeguards against fraud during the application process.

“He never felt like he should have been a part of it because he always felt as me being a first responder it was for me,” Licata said.

“The hoops that he had to jump through, and deservedly so, to verify everything that he has gone through. So I think people worrying about fraud is misleading because it’s so difficult. You would have to have so many moving parts involved to make fraudulent claims.”

Trump says he would ‘want to hear’ dirt on 2020 rivals from foreign governments, suggests he wouldn’t contact FBI

Westlake Legal Group 42678bba-AP19163744452821 Trump says he would 'want to hear' dirt on 2020 rivals from foreign governments, suggests he wouldn't contact FBI Liam Quinn fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc d4d01970-378d-51fe-97f7-6bd1b21f077f article

President Trump said he would be willing to listen to foreign governments if they approached him with information on a political rival.

Trump made the admission during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, adding that he would not necessarily contact the FBI if such an approach was made. Video from the interview went public Wednesday evening.

“I think I’d want to hear it… I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” he said.

“If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

DONALD TRUMP JR. STANDS BY ORIGINAL TESTIMONY AS HE RETURNS FOR SENATE COMMITTEE INTERVIEW

The president continued in the interview: “Somebody comes up and says, ‘hey, I have information on your opponent,’ do you call the FBI?

“I’ll tell you what, I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don’t call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do.”

When pressed on the issue by Stephanopoulos, Trump responded: “Oh, give me a break — life doesn’t work that way.”

Many Democrats reacted with outrage. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a 2020 candidate for president, tweeted in response: “It’s time for Congress to begin impeachment hearings.”

The role of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in organizing a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer offering negative information on Hillary Clinton was a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the last presidential campaign.

TRUMP TELLS REPORTERS HE’S ‘ALWAYS RIGHT’ DURING OVAL OFFICE PRESS CONFERENCE WITH POLISH PRESIDENT

Mueller painstakingly documented Russian efforts to boost Trump’s campaign and undermine Clinton’s. It did not establish a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump’s campaign.

Trump repeatedly praised WikiLeaks in 2016 and celebrated information exposed by Russian hackers.

Trump’s comments came just a month after he pledged not to use information stolen by foreign adversaries in his 2020 re-election campaign.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters in the Oval Office last month, Trump said he “would certainly agree to” that commitment.

MARTHA MACCALLUM: NEW POLLING NUMBERS ARE A ‘BIG WAKE-UP CALL’ FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP

“I don’t need it,” he said as he met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. “All I need is the opponents that I’m looking at.”

FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers that Donald Trump Jr. should have called his agency to report the offer.

However, Trump, who nominated Wray to the role in 2017, told ABC News he disagreed. “The FBI director is wrong,” the president said.

Asked whether his advisers should accept information on an opponent from Russia, China or another nation or call the FBI this time, Trump said, “I think maybe you do both,” expressing openness to reviewing the information.

Katie Pavlich on US Women’s soccer controversy: ‘This is the big leagues – you’ve got to win hard’

The U.S. Women’s World Cup soccer team’s 13-0 rout of Thailand should be a non-controversial record win, according to Katie Pavlich.

The team should not have been criticized for appearing to run up the score and for continuing to celebrate each goal Tuesday, Pavlich said on “The Five.”

“This is the big leagues. You’ve got to win and you’ve got to win hard and early,” she said Wednesday.

US WOMEN’S WORLD CUP TEAM COMES UNDER CRITICISM FOR CELEBRATING GOALS IN BLOWOUT

Pavlich echoed comments from U.S. women’s team coach Jill Ellis, who responded to criticism by telling reporters it is “respectful” to opponents to continue to play hard, no matter the situation.

“I agree with the coach,” she said.

Ellis went on to further defend her team, saying because it is a tournament, “goal differential is key,” referring to how the breadth of a team’s win may work in their favor should they reach a tie-breaker.

Fellow “The Five” host Kennedy added the team is a great group who should be able to celebrate however they’d like.

“I also love the United States of America. I think the U.S. Women’s national team is phenomenal. When they celebrate every goal how much they want this, how important it is to them and how they work for this their entire lives and careers,” she said.

“Alex had five goals and three assists. It means something to them. For them to celebrate as Americans, we should be high fiving along with them,” she continued, referring to player Alex Morgan.

Tuesday’s score was the biggest blowout in the tournament’s history.

Donna Brazile on Joe Biden’s flip-flops: We should ’embrace’ the evolution of politicians

Westlake Legal Group AP19162693494122 Donna Brazile on Joe Biden's flip-flops: We should 'embrace' the evolution of politicians fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article Anna Hopkins 4f69ae4e-0cee-58e4-92ac-7e29409c0e60

As 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden continues to change up his stances on major issues, Fox News contributor and former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile argued that the American people should “embrace” the former vice president evolving in his ideas.

During a Wednesday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Brazile discussed Biden’s recent flip-flop on China; last month he attempted to quell fears about the country, but last week admitted he was “worried” about China, adding that it’s important for America to invest in itself before sparking fears about foreign productivity.

Brazile said Biden’s most recent position is the correct one – we should be wary of China but invest first in ourselves in order to be competitive.

“It’s a threat that we have to deal with not just by adding pressure but we need our allies on board with us,” Brazile said. “We need to make sure and that we go into negotiations with the very toughest position. Joe Biden is also right – that we have to invest in our own in order to compete with China in the future,” she continued.

Hosts went on to point out a pattern in Biden’s campaign of the former vice president expressing different viewpoints about issues he vehemently defended even days prior. Most newsworthy was his consistent support of the Hyde Amendment, which he rescinded during a speech last week. The amendment prevents federal funding from being used for abortions except in the case of rape, incest or a life-threatening pregnancy.

TRUMP, BIDEN ‘EVISCERATE’ EACH OTHER AS PRESS QUESTIONS POTUS’ POLLS

Brazile admitted that she may be being “charitable,” she believes it’s important to allow politicians to expand their viewpoints.

“When they evolve, we should embrace their evolution,” she said. “Perhaps this is not an evolution in his thoughts but is he explaining it better now.”

Regardless of Biden’s increasingly progressive stances, Brazile said she’s “still shopping” for a candidate to support in the 2020 election.

However, she spoke out against President Trump’s designation of Biden as “sleepy” and the insinuation that the presidential candidate isn’t working as hard on the campaign trail as his Democratic colleagues.

“He is not sleeping. He’s not, you know, over there on the sidelines,” Brazile said. “He is raising money, he’s putting together a team. Remember, he just came out of the box a couple of weeks ago, unlike the other candidates who have been running for the last three months,” she continued.

Biden has been noticeably absent from a number of big Democratic events in recent weeks, including the Iowa Democratic Party’s annual summer fundraiser on Sunday.

Trump, Biden ‘eviscerate’ each other as press questions POTUS’ polls

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6047082662001_6047074907001-vs Trump, Biden 'eviscerate' each other as press questions POTUS' polls Howard Kurtz fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/columns/media-buzz fox news fnc/politics fnc fc2c3f07-1642-5479-b34f-6e05449ad214 article

CNN had the “breaking news” banner headline up for hours on its morning news show:

BIDEN TO EVISCERATE TRUMP TODAY IN IOWA SPEECH.”

Does that sound like a balanced headline on “New Day”? Or does it sound like the show is saying the president is very much in need of eviscerating?

I harp on this because CNN promotes this as a news program, not an opinion show. I have no problem with playing up a speech leaked in advance by Joe Biden’s campaign (Fox and many others reported it as well). The CNN anchors and panelists didn’t say anything terribly biased. But that headline undercut them. Would the average viewer get the sense that CNN is subtly cheering Biden on?

WARNING SIGNS FOR TRUMP AS NEW POLL SHOWS BIDEN, OTHER DEMS WITH 2020 EDGE

Here’s how Axios handled the same leak: “Biden Hits Trump 76 Times in Iowa speech.” That’s a statement of fact. The story included such Biden applause lines as “I believe Trump is an existential threat to America.”

The media treated yesterday as a general-election preview because the president was also in Iowa. And the advance speech prompted Trump to do his own eviscerating at a press gaggle before leaving Washington.

“I think he’s the weakest mentally,” Trump said of Biden. “I like running against people who are weak mentally.” He called the former VP a “dummy” in terms of his approach to China.

The president also called him a “loser” and said that for Biden to mention him 76 times in a speech, “that means he’s in trouble.”

CNN CRITICIZED FOR CHYRON CLAIMING BIDEN WILL ‘EVISCERATE’ TRUMP IN SPEECH

And Trump not-so-subtly raised the age issue, saying Biden “looks different than he used to. He acts different than he used to. He’s even slower than he used to be.” Biden is 76, Trump is about to turn 73.

The New York Times, meanwhile, kicked off Trump’s day in Iowa with a behind-the-scenes story that raised questions about his veracity.

After the president’s pollster, Tony Fabrizio, briefed him on a “devastasting” 17-state survey, Trump “told aides to deny that his internal polling showed him trailing Mr. Biden in many of the states he needs to win, even though he is also trailing in public polls from key states like Texas, Michigan and Pennsylvania. And when top-line details of the polling leaked, including numbers showing the president lagging in a cluster of critical Rust Belt states, Mr. Trump instructed aides to say publicly that other data showed him doing well.”

At the helicopter gaggle, Trump said only, “My poll numbers are great.”

A CNN reporter earlier asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders whether the president told his aides to deny that internal polling showed him trailing Biden.

She deflected the question more than once, saying, “Look, I think the polling got it completely wrong in 2016, I don’t think it’s right now.”

Another passage from the NYT story: Trump “rarely if ever speaks to aides about what he hopes to accomplish with what would be a hard-won second term; his interest is entirely in the present, and mostly on the crisis of the moment. He has shown no interest in formulating a new message for his campaign, instead continuing with the winning “Make America Great Again” slogan from his last race and adding that he also wants to ‘keep America great.’”

Hey, the guy was elected despite all the polls and all the odds, so it’s little surprise that he trusts his instincts. He devises his message hour by hour. Nor is it a shock that he lives in the moment.

RACHEL MADDOW TO HELP MODERATE FIRST DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY DEBATE

As for Biden, all three cable news networks took his Iowa speech, delivered in a more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger tone. He called Trump a “threat to our core values,” a “threat to our standing in the world” and a “genuine threat to American democracy.” He declared that “this is really dangerous stuff” and that “four years of Donald Trump will be viewed as an aberration in American history and around the world.”

On one level, it’s just another day of sparring, but it benefits both men. Trump, apparently convinced that he’ll be facing Biden, wants to rough him up during the primaries. Biden, who still has to win Iowa and a whole bunch of other states, wants to foster the notion that it’s him against Donald and the other 23 candidates are irrelevant.

Footnote:  NBC announced its moderators for the back-to-back debates at the end of June: Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Chuck Todd, Jose Diaz-Balart and…Rachel Maddow.

Maddow, a Rhodes scholar, is a smart woman and talented broadcaster, but she’s a fierce partisan who despises Trump, has pounded away at the Mueller probe for two years and conducts friendly interviews with Democratic candidates. Yet virtually no one in the press is questioning her selection.

Didn’t the DNC ban Fox from the debates on grounds that the network wouldn’t be fair? If Fox was hosting a Republican debate with several journalists plus, say, Sean Hannity or Lou Dobbs, there would be a media uproar.

But because it’s a popular figure on the left, nobody raises an eyebrow.

Alan Dershowitz: ‘The Mueller report should never have been written’

Westlake Legal Group Dershowitz-Ingraham-FOX Alan Dershowitz: 'The Mueller report should never have been written' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/person/william-barr fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 629326ee-362e-5361-b346-12bba5e19234

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation should never have been written, according to Alan Dershowitz.

The Constitution does not explicitly provide for special counsels or special prosecutors, Dershowitz said Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

He added such offices are “inconsistent” with the founding document, adding that there wasn’t a pretense for the several-hundred-page conclusion to the investigation into President Trump.

HOUSE VOTES TO HOLD BARR, MCGAHN IN ‘CONTEMPT,’ WITH ANOTHER VOTE EXPECTED SOON

Dershowitz also claimed Democrats have no legal right to have Mueller testify before them.

“Prosecutors have a right to say only one thing: We have concluded there’s no evidence sufficient to charge the president with Russian collusion or obstruction of justice, period. I’m taking no questions, I’m making no public report. I’m giving my findings to the attorney general.

“No prosecutor should go beyond that.”

Earlier Tuesday, House Democrats passed a civil enforcement resolution they said effectively holds Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress.

Barr previously skipped a hearing on the findings of the Mueller report after Trump asserted executive privilege.

The news came just a day after a key Democrat-led committee postponed its own contempt vote and said the Justice Department was cooperating with its investigation.

On Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., announced he had reached a deal with the Justice Department to access key documents related to potential obstruction of justice, and that he would pause efforts to have the full House vote on that measure.

Bill Maher: Pete Buttigieg is ‘too young’ to be president

“Real Time” host Bill Maher said that while he likes South Bend, Ind., Mayor and Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg, he’s “too young” to be president.

During Part 2 of a CNN interview that aired Tuesday, Maher defended former Vice President Joe Biden and his drastic shift on supporting the Hyde Amendment, which outlaws federal funding for abortions, telling “Cuomo Prime Time” anchor Chris Cuomo that Biden has “evolved.”

“I think what it reveals is that people in this age don’t understand that humans evolve just like societies evolve,” Maher explained. “And by the way, to all these people that are so harsh on the past, there’s things that you’re doing right now that are going to look bad in the future. Things we’re doing right now. I mean, we used to smoke on airplanes.”

“So yes, Joe Biden is not perfect. None of us are,” Maher continued. “All you can expect from a human being is to evolve. He was rotten to Anita Hill but you know what — Is he going to keep apologizing for it until the end of his time?”

The HBO star then pointed to the generalization that “people who are older are wiser” and acknowledged there are “exceptions.”

“In general, yes, I’m OK with someone who has learned and grown and seen a lot and has experienced it and has seen patterns,” Maher told Cuomo. “You know, I like Mayor Pete, but I do think 37 is a little too young. A little bit.”

In Part 1 of the interview, Maher defended Biden, urging other Democrats to stop “pecking” at him if he’s the only candidate who can beat President Trump in 2020.

Doug Collins criticizes Democrats for flip-flopping on Russia threat

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Doug Collins criticizes Democrats for flip-flopping on Russia threat Nick Givas fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc c95de031-42db-5f13-9e70-b7ad436ec76a article

House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins mocked congressional Democrats on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday for continuing to breathe life into the Rober Mueller Russia investigation in an effort to impeach President Trump.

“It’s like watching late-night reruns on the cable channels where you’ve seen all the shows. You know what they’re going to say, you laugh at the jokes before they ever get there,” he said.

“The problem was we just ended up seeing someone yesterday who’s trying to re-create his career for 45 years, saying: ‘I was part of a corrupt organization. I testified and now I’m going to say everything is worse than what I did.’ That’s how he’s made a living for 45 years.”

House Democrats held a hearing on Capitol Hill Monday and called Watergate whistleblower and CNN contributor John Dean as a witness. Collins questioned the validity of such a hearing and implied Democrats were acting hypocritically.

“Just a few years ago it was brought up and one of our [Republcan] candidates talked about Russia being a threat and the former President, Mr. Obama said … that the 80s are asking for their foreign policy back. Well guess what, this committee is now hearing from the 70s and they want their star witness back,” Collins told the committee.

Collins told Fox News he believes Democrats are trying to tie Trump to Nixon in an effort to expedite impeachment proceedings against the Commander-in-Chief.

“Why are [Democrats] bringing in someone, except for star value — let’s be very honest. What they wanted there is they wanted the word Nixon and impeachment because they were trying to tie that word to the president,” he told “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade.

“They cannot find any other way to tie the president to anything else except innuendo and off candid remarks, they want impeachment, they let their base think they are doing something.

Collins also said House Democrats are desperately trying to appease their base after promising to work tirelessly to remove Trump from office

“They promised their base that the Mueller report would take this president down. They couldn’t run against the president who has the best economy who has actually worked on trade deals and raised our standing in the world and who has done things they promised they would do. They can’t run on that,” he said.

“They are trying to help the ones running for president, and what we are finding out they will take little bits an pieces and what about this. My question to our committee, the Mueller report had unlimited resources, grand jury, subpoena options, everything that we don’t have. How is our committee who can’t seem to get through a hearing yesterday without looking like a total joke, how are they going to investigate better than Mueller who was fully funded and after a specific reason, we won’t be able to do that, they are trying to tar the president.” c
