AOC may challenge Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand in upcoming Senate races: report

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Schumer-Gillibrand_AP AOC may challenge Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand in upcoming Senate races: report Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics fox-news/person/kirsten-gillibrand fox-news/person/chuck-schumer fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 1ed08633-c025-5305-9f66-6ecc1d783710

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, could be facing a major challenger in their next Senate races — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY.

Top Democrats suspect that the freshman congresswoman will primary either Schumer in 2022 or Gillibrand in 2024, according to a report from Axios, Gillibrand, who is currently running for president, just won reelection during the 2018 midterms after vowing she would serve her full six-year term.

If AOC runs against the two party powerhouses — and wins — it wouldn’t be the first time she toppled a big-name Democrat after she defeated leading lawmaker Joe Crowley, who was the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus a member of Congress for nearly 20 years, during the New York primaries in 2018.

Since then, Ocasio-Cortez has become a household name and is leading the effort in promoting the Green New Deal in hopes of tackling climate change.

OCASIO-CORTEZ TWEETS CLAIM THAT ‘POWERFUL PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO BRIBE’ TRUMP INTO WAR

With massive support among progressives, the New York representative is seen as a kingmaker during the 2020 election and is weighing her options on who to back in the presidential race.

Senators Bernie Sanders, I-VT, and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, have so far received the highest praise from the self-described Democratic Socialist.

She has repeatedly blasted former Vice President Joe Biden, most recently for his previous support for the Hyde Amendment, which outlaws federal funding for abortions.

“If your pride is being a moderate centrist candidate, say that,” Ocasio-Cortez said last week. “Say, ‘I’m proud to be a centrist, I’m proud to be funded by Wall Street. I’m proud to not push as hard as I can on women’s rights.’ Say it, own it, be it, but don’t come out here and say you’re a progressive candidate, but at the same time not support repealing something as basic as the Hyde Amendment.”

Alec Baldwin calls Sarah Huckabee Sanders a ‘mouthpiece for facism’ during nasty feud with father

Westlake Legal Group Baldwin-Sander-Huckabee_Getty-AP-Getty Alec Baldwin calls Sarah Huckabee Sanders a 'mouthpiece for facism' during nasty feud with father Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/sarah-sanders fox-news/person/alec-baldwin fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc f5066d28-aa3e-5959-9334-b0f99323a4ea article

Alec Baldwin attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during a heated exchange with her father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, calling her a “mouthpiece for fascism.”

The feud began when Huckabee celebrated Baldwin’s declaration that he is “so done” with impersonating President Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

“Good news for viewers who are “so done” with “SNL” & unfunny vicious Trump bashing instead of comedy,” Huckabee tweeted.

Baldwin shot back on early Monday morning, targeting both him and his daughter.

“Who knows what the future holds?” Baldwin began. “I tell what it should hold. That you, who have sucked a govt paycheck out of the economy while you were a dreadful Lt gov and then gov and that daughter of yours, a mouthpiece for fascism, that you go away. Just… go away.”

The “30 Rock” star followed up that tweet with another, calling his TBN show “dreadful” and that he has “no charm, insight or intellect.”

Huckabee, a Fox News contributor, has yet to respond to Baldwin.

Baldwin, however, suggested that he may hold onto the role of “President Trump” on “Saturday Night Live” in response to an article that his departure from the show would be a “win” for the president.

“If pissing off Trump is the point, then I’ll keep doing it! I’ll keep doing it!!” Baldwin said.

Sen. Josh Hawley: US must hold Mexico’s ‘feet to the fire’ on immigration

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6046492408001_6046489109001-vs Sen. Josh Hawley: US must hold Mexico's 'feet to the fire' on immigration Julia Musto fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 0517c47b-69f2-5874-b27e-7ba7d14e6a27

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said the way to stop the crisis at the southern border with Mexico is by expanding the Remain in Mexico Program and holding Mexico’s “feet to the fire.”

The Remain in Mexico Program — also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols — institutes a policy that outlines procedures under which the U.S. government will return certain asylum seekers to Mexico to wait through the duration of their cases pending in the U.S. immigration court system.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday, Hawley told hosts Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith that the Remain in Mexico Program would help end catch-and-release in the United States and give immigration officers the ability to return illegal immigrants to Mexico while their asylum claims are processed.

“Getting Mexico to commit to actually policing its southern border in a more serious fashion is absolutely necessary,” said Hawley. “We need to create Mexico as a ‘Safe Third Country,’ as it’s called, where all of these claims hopefully can be processed in Mexico before these folks come to our southern border.”

TRUMP SLAMS NYT STORY ON MEXICO PACT AS A ‘FRAUD’ AND ‘HIT JOB’

Making Mexico a “Safe Third Country” would mean asylum-seekers who pass through the country to claim refuge in the United States would have a harder time doing so. The idea, which Mexico has long opposed, was discussed during recent negotiations. However, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has said his country did not agree to it, even as Mexican diplomats said talks would continue.

“Listen, it’s important to hold Mexico’s feet to the fire,” urged Hawley. “We need Mexico as a full and equal partner here. Something that the Mexican ambassador said to me is, ‘Well, we just can’t have Mexico, we just can’t have this many migrants in our country.’ I said, ‘Think about what it’s like for our country.’”

Fox News has learned more than 200,000 migrants claiming to be part of families have been released into the U.S. since the end of December 2018 and United States Customs and Border Patrol reported that 144,278 individuals have been apprehended or deemed inadmissible along the southwest border since in the month of May.

On “Fox News Sunday,” acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said he agreed with a CBP official who said the border was “bursting at the seams.”

ACTING DHS SECRETARY PRAISES WHITE HOUSE DEAL WITH MEXICO ON IMMIGRATION, DEFENDS TRUMP’S TARIFF THREAT

President Trump had threatened a five percent tariff on Mexican goods to take effect unless Mexico did more to address the humanitarian crisis. On Friday the president purportedly struck a deal with Mexico, but on Sunday he bluntly suggested he might again seek to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico if its cooperation falls short in the future.

According to the joint declaration issued by the State Department, Mexico will take “unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.”

John Rich: ‘Shut Up About Politics’ hit song resonating because it’s ‘what everybody’s thinking’

Westlake Legal Group Rich-Gutfeld_Getty-FOX John Rich: 'Shut Up About Politics' hit song resonating because it's 'what everybody's thinking' fox-news/us/military/military-families fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment/genres/country fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 6acb1cfd-3a24-5249-b46c-45b1f1f10579

A hit song recorded by John Rich is resonating with America and helping military families in a unique way, the country music recording artist said.

Rich explained why the song “Shut Up About Politics” – recorded with a little help from the hosts of “The Five” – had soared to the top of the iTunes download charts, in an appearance “The One with Greg Gutfeld” podcast.

“I looked up and we were literally the number one most downloaded song on any genre of music,” the country music star said.

Rich joked that host Greg Gutfeld, who received a co-writer credit for the song, penned something more popular than some ageless tunes.

“You’ve now written a song bigger than “Happy Birthday,” Greg,” he said.

The CMA Award nominee added country music is popular across the country because it speaks to listeners’ personal thoughts.

“The thing about country music, and the reason it’s so big, a lot of times in country you’ll write songs that’ll say what everybody is thinking.”

He added “Shut Up About Politics” was no different.

GUTFELD ON ‘THE FIVE’S NEW SONG WITH JOHN RICH

“You and I were able to put into a little song how people feel about not being able to watch an award show or a game or a movie… without there constantly being some kind of political angle to it,” Rich said. “You feel like screaming at them, ‘please shut up about politics’.”

He and Gutfeld also discussed how 100 percent of the song’s proceeds go to Folds of Honor.

“Folds of Honor puts kids through college who lost a parent through combat,” the singer said. “Our little song, Greg, is going to be having a serious impact in real people’s lives in this country.”

Gutfeld said the idea for the collaboration came from a suggestion by Dana Perino during a bus tour with his “The Five” co-hosts a few years ago.

“When we did the bus tour a couple years ago, I would be… writing these insane country songs about being on the bus, and she said, ‘Boy, you should record one of these.”

Mark Penn: If Trump probed Nadler, Schiff the way they conduct investigations on him, he’d be impeached

Westlake Legal Group Mark-Levin-split1 Mark Penn: If Trump probed Nadler, Schiff the way they conduct investigations on him, he'd be impeached fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/life-liberty-levin fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 4cd7f13f-fe89-51da-b2d4-e3811a4151d1

There would be calls for President Trump’s impeachment if he investigated lawmakers as fervently as they’ve probed him and his family, Mark Penn claimed.

Penn, a former Clinton pollster, made the remarks in an interview airing Sunday on “Life, Liberty & Levin.”

He said he believed the numerous investigations led by congressional Democrats into Trump, his family and his administration have blurred the lines between “legitimate legislative inquiry” and “government-financed opposition research.”

Penn claimed the voters understand that a thorough investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller “is enough.”

NADLER: THERE ‘CERTAINLY’ IS JUSTIFICATION TO IMPEACH TRUMP

“Now saying: ‘Hey let’s get some of these tax returns — oh, let’s get the tax returns of their children, their family. Let’s go back in history,’ that’s government-financed opposition research, that’s not legitimate legislative inquiry,” he said.

“It’ll be very hard, I think, for the courts to sort this out.”

Penn claimed some Democratic House committee chairs who are investigating Trump or seeking personal data like tax returns have made statements that “indict the purpose” of their probes.

He said he believed Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the Intelligence Committee, are two such lawmakers.

“If the courts were willing to use some statement that Donald Trump made on the campaign trail, they have hundreds and hundreds of statements that these congressmen — and particularly Nadler and Schiff — have made that really indict the purpose of these investigations as nothing more but going after people who are associated with Trump just because they are working for the president,” Penn said. “And, going after Trump and his entire family in ways that are unprecedented — in ways that we would normally have impeached people for.”

“If the president of the United States did the reverse, and ordered up all the tax returns of everybody in Congress, and started to look into all the business affairs of those folks in Congress, how long would he be president? He’d be impeached, right then and there.”

Last month, Nadler accused the White House of “stonewalling” his committee’s investigation by asserting executive privilege in not complying with subpoenas.

“They are uniformly rejecting subpoenas from Congress. This means that they have decided to oppose the role of Congress as a coordinate branch of government representing the American people,” Nadler said.

Nadler later said in an interview there “certainly is” justification for impeachment proceedings, but added the American people must agree with that view before further steps are taken.

“Impeachment is a political act, and you cannot impeach a president if the American people will not support it. The American people, right now, do not support it because they do not know the story. They don’t know the facts,” he said.

In an interview with HBO’s Bill Maher, Schiff hedged when asked about impeaching Trump, telling the comedian he’d rather see the American people “vote his a– out.”

Fox News’ Victor Garcia, Brooke Singman and Sam Dorman contributed to this report.

Joe Biden caved to ‘exceedingly radical’ Dems on Hyde Amendment: Matt Schlapp

Joe Biden‘s reversal this week on the Hyde Amendment regarding abortion funding was a surrender to the “exceedingly radical” wing of the Democratic Party, American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp argued Friday on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

Biden said Thursday he could “no longer support” the amendment, which he had backed as recently as Wednesday, saying it makes a woman’s right to an abortion “dependent on someone’s ZIP code.”

“The saddest thing of all,” Schlapp told “Hannity” guest host Dan Bongino, “is to watch him stumble through that statement. Clearly, he doesn’t know what to say or what to do.”

BIDEN ADVISER SYMONE SANDERS LASHES OUT AT MEDIA OVER HYDE AMENDMENT COVERAGE

Matt Schlapp, left, had some sharp words to say Friday regarding Joe Biden’s reversal on the Hyde Amendment.

Schlapp added that abortion “is not health care” and said the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationally, doesn’t mean taxpayers should have to pay for abortion services.

Biden, a Roman Catholic, had long supported the Hyde Amendment and has said he personally opposes abortion. So his reversal this week smacked of political expediency, Schlapp argued.

“This is an open-borders, Green New Deal, socialist Democratic Party that believes in post-birth abortion, late-term abortion,” Schlapp said. “They are exceedingly radical and Joe Biden is trying to go along to get that brass ring.”

“This is an open-borders, Green New Deal, socialist Democratic Party that believes in post-birth abortion, late-term abortion. They are exceedingly radical and Joe Biden is trying to go along to get that brass ring.”

— Matt Schlapp, American Conservative Union

Another “Hannity” guest, Trump 2020 campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, agreed with Schlapp.

“Joe Biden is Puppet Boy,” McEnany said. “There is someone pulling his strings. It’s pathetic. He has no convictions, no principles, no message.”

She said actress Alyssa Milano — who tried to prevent passage of Georgia’s pro-life law — and low-level Biden staffers appeared to have steered the former vice president away from “whatever principles he had left.”

“This is quite a modest thing to be for,” Schlapp added. “They have become radicalized. This is not your grandfather’s Democratic Party.”

Other 2020 Democrats, like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, have said the Hyde Amendment disproportionately affects poor women who can’t access abortion through government-funded health care.

Maher warns Dems not to make gun control a 2020 issue: ‘Liberals should learn more about guns’

“Real Time” host Bill Maher cautioned Democrats not to make gun control a prominent issue in the 2020 election, urging them not to “die on this hill” if it means losing to President Trump.

During his panel discussion Friday night, Maher listed several issues on which Democrats’ stands poll better than Republicans,’ such as the environment, education and health care. But he noted that Republicans hold a narrow lead over Democrats on gun policy.

Maher then mentioned President Trump’s recent sit-down with British TV personality Pierce Morgan, where the president mentioned that some people own guns for recreational use.

“I don’t like guns. Have some, don’t like them, have it for [an] emergency, like an antibiotic,” Maher told the panel, “but some people do. Lots of people do and their view is, ‘Yes there is a violence problem with guns, but not me. And you’re going after me.'”

Maher added he had doubts whether solutions proposed by Democrats “would solve the gun problem,” and that “to die on this hill and lose an election” was a real possibility because “we’ve lost elections before on this issue, which is not a winning issue for Democrats.”

“What is the option though, not to make it a central part of the campaign?,” New York Times columnist Charles Blow asked.

“No,” Maher responded. “First of all, liberals should learn more about guns. I don’t know much about guns because, again, I don’t care, I don’t like them, but I hear this from gun people.”

The HBO star then mentioned a CNN interview in which 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ, was pressed how his gun control plan would have prevented the recent mass shooting in Virginia Beach.

“Cory Booker took a very long time to be able to answer that question,” Maher said as he shook his head.

Blow dismissed Maher’s criticism, saying the “framing of the question is wrong” and pointed to the 30,000 deaths per year that involve guns that needs preventing.

“You’re seriously saying that he shouldn’t be able to answer the question as a politician, ‘How will your plan specifically stop this problem?'” Maher reacted. “If you did everything that the Democrats wanted… I still think you would have this problem because it’s much more complicated than just the mass killers or the type of gun. You’re going to be disappointed if you think just doing what they want gun-wise is gonna solve it.”

Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif, pushed back, saying Democrats’ gun control efforts were intended to “reduce preventable gun deaths.”

“I’m just saying I want to win this election and I want to fight it on the issues we’re going to win on,” Maher added.

Bill Maher’s talk of hypothetical Trump-led purge baffles panel: ‘I’m just asking’

“Real Time” host Bill Maher seemed to confound his panel Friday night by using reports of a purge in North Korea to try to make a point about Republicans and their reactions to President Trump.

Like other liberals, Maher has sometimes suggested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others in the GOP have been unwilling to “stand up” to Trump — while many Republicans have countered they simply agree with the president’s policies.

BILL MAHER SAYS BIDEN CANDIDACY WORRIES HIM: ‘JOE DOESN’T LOOK GOOD’

But on Friday’s show, Maher proposed an extreme hypothetical case, citing reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “had his entire negotiating team killed.”

“What if Trump killed his negotiating team?” Maher asked. “What if he killed [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo and [National Security Adviser] John Bolton? What would [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell say or do?”

“What if Trump killed his negotiating team? What if he killed Mike Pompeo and John Bolton? What would Mitch McConnell say or do?”

The panel seemed baffled by the inquiry.

“Is that a real question?” New York Times columnist Charles Blow laughed.

“Yep, it is,” Maher responded. “I’m just asking. I don’t know. I’m just asking.”

Earlier, Maher mocked Trump’s tweets celebrating the newly announced U.S.-Mexico deal on tariffs and immigration.

Maher dismissed the deal as a “brain fart,” saying the president “gave up” after a standoff with Mexico.

Austan Goolsbee: Pelosi ‘stepped over the line’ with reported remarks about imprisoning Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reported remarks about wanting to see President Trump imprisoned were “over the line,” according to a former Obama administration economic adviser.

Former Obama White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee made the comments Friday in an appearance on “Hannity.”

Rep. Pelosi, D-Calif., reportedly made her remarks while defending her stance against impeaching the president in an evening meeting earlier this week with House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and other top Democrats, according to Politico.

NANCY PELOSI TOLD DEMS SHE WANTS TO SEE TRUMP ‘IN PRISON’: REPORT

“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” she said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting.

Host Dan Bongino asked Goolsbee if he took issue with Pelosi reportedly making those comments.

“I have somewhat of a problem with that, and I’m glad that wasn’t a public statement,” Goolsbee said. “I wasn’t there. I can’t verify she said that. If she did say that, I think that’s over the line.”

However, Goolsbee added he believed Trump also committed a similar mistake multiple times during his presidency.

“It’s a line that the president of the United States, to be fair, is quite familiar with stepping over, too. Calling for people to be investigated for treason, pronouncing them guilty before there is any investigation,” he said.

“But, I certainly don’t think that it’s appropriate to either say you want the president in jail or to say that you think the president should be impeached when there has been no investigation. We haven’t had any fact-finding. I think that is stepping over the line.”

Jason Chaffetz: Nadler ‘running a clown show with buckets of chicken and convicted felons’

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler has been “running a clown show” in his proceedings surrounding the Russia investigation, according to Jason Chaffetz.

Chaffetz reacted Friday on “The Story” to news Rep. Nadler’s, D-N.Y., committee will convene a hearing with former Nixon White House counsel John Dean on Monday.

Nadler said in a statement he learned much from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, adding Congress must continue where the former FBI director left off.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TO HOLD MUELLER REPORT HEARING WITH WATERGATE FIGURE JOHN DEAN

“We have learned so much even from the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report,” Nadler said earlier this week. “Russia attacked our elections to help President Trump win, Trump and his campaign welcomed this help and the President then tried to obstruct the investigation into the attack. Mueller confirmed these revelations and has now left Congress to pick up where he left off.”

Dean, a onetime member of former President Richard Nixon’s staff, later testified against the Republican before the Senate Watergate Committee. Dean later served four months in prison for his role in the Watergate scandal.

Chaffetz, a Fox News contributor and former member of the House Judiciary Committee, said there is not much to be gained from Dean’s scheduled testimony.

“This is a made-for-C-SPAN event,” the former Utah congressman claimed. “The House seems to be bringing convicted felons before it to somehow give testimony that is going to be compelling. [Dean] can shed no light on the immediate situation, no light on what happened during this event.”

“What Jerry Nadler is doing is running a clown show, with buckets of chicken, convicted felons and people who know nothing about the case at hand.”

Chaffetz’ appeared to reference House Judiciary Committee member Steve Cohen bringing a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken to a hearing for which Attorney General William Barr defied a subpoena and did not show up.

Rep. Cohen, D-Tenn., dubbed the attorney general “Chicken Barr” for skipping the proceeding.
