Former ICE director: Dems ‘drive’ to see Trump fail more important to them than immigrant lives

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057670901001_6057670226001-vs Former ICE director: Dems 'drive' to see Trump fail more important to them than immigrant lives Victor Garcia fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc d621c558-d011-503b-9b4f-c8201ba43f51 article

Former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan blamed Democrats Wednesday for prolonging the border crisis saying their “hatred” for President Trump is more important to them than lives of illegal immigrant children.

While appearing on “The Ingraham Angle,” host Laura Ingraham asked Homan if Democrats wanted to prolong the issues at the southern U.S.-Mexico border.

“Do you agree that the Democrats seem to want this crisis to go on?” Ingraham asked before adding, “I know that seems like a horrible thing to say.”

“I’ve said that for a year. They absolutely do,” Homan responded.

“They want this president to fail on border security because their hatred of this president and their drive to see him fail is more important to them than the lives of women and children,” Homan added.

He then defended Border Patrol agents against the media’s coverage saying that they are not mistreating migrants.

“The men and women of the Border Patrol are doing an outstanding job… over half are Latino descent, most of them are mothers and fathers themselves. They’re not making women drink out of toilets and they’re not molesting children,” Homan said.

“Is anybody talking about the four thousand men and women and children that were saved by the Border Patrol this year?”

Homan blasted Congress again saying flatly they are responsible for children in detention centers.

“Congress’ failure created this whole mess. They can look in the mirror if they want to blame someone for children being in overcrowded detention placement, it’s their fault,” he said.

Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with Hollywood, media elite despite dirty past as registered sex offender, reports say

Jeffrey Epstein has been a known sex offender for over a decade, but his perverted past didn’t limit his access to Hollywood and media elite, even at the height of the #MeToo movement, according to reports.

Epstein, a mysterious 66-year-old hedge fund manager, was arrested on Saturday after years of rumors regarding allegations that he sexually abused minors. In 2008, Epstein was required to register as a sex offender, but he’s since been hit a slew of new charges and allegedly operated a sex ring. But Epstein reportedly spent the last decade hanging out with moneyed elite, despite his sleazy past.

BILL MAHER JOKED ABOUT BILL CLINTON JOINING JEFFREY EPSTEIN ON ‘SEX ISLAND’ BACK IN 2015

The Hollywood Reporter published a report on Wednesday headlined, “Jeffrey Epstein moved freely in Hollywood circles even after 2008 conviction,” which details the registered sex offender’s ability to gallivant with prominent political figures and celebrities.

“Equally troubling are Epstein’s long-cultivated relationships within Hollywood and New York media circles, where he moved with ease well after his high-profile 2008 conviction for soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14,” THR’s Tatiana Siegel and Marisa Guthrie wrote.

The report says that Epstein has been escorted to A-list events by “New York society doyenne” Peggy Siegal, “traveled behind the velvet rope with ease” and hung out with stars including Chris Tucker and Kevin Spacey.

The Hollywood Reporter said Epstein “frequently attended industry events” despite the #MeToo movement bringing down other once-powerful men.

“Amid a climate where figures including Harvey Weinstein and CBS’ Leslie Moonves had instantly become persona non grata for alleged misconduct, Epstein had been convicted and still enjoyed film-world access,” Siegel and Guthrie wrote.

“Epstein, like Weinstein was a known awful entity, and he was accepted by them, even post #MeToo because it didn’t make then look bad… yet.”

— Tim Young

Political comedian and host of “The No Things Considered” podcast, Tim Young, told Fox News that “it goes to show that certain people in Hollywood will only oust you when your presence becomes a PR issue” for them.

“Epstein, like Weinstein was a known awful entity, and he was accepted by them, even post #MeToo because it didn’t make them look bad… yet,” Young said. “It’s not about the crime, it’s about the direct image… and these people wanted that money and influence around, regardless of what they knew.”

BILL CLINTON ‘KNOWS NOTHING’ ABOUT FINANCIER JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ‘TERRIBLE CRIMES,’ FORMER PRESIDENT’S SPOKESMAN SAYS

Epstein even hosted a 2010 dinner party with a guest list including Katie Couric, Charlie Rose, Woody Allen, Chelsea Handler and ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, THR reported, citing the New York Post.

“Lasagna was served… he was wearing jeans and velvet Stubbs & Wootton slippers,” Siegel and Guthrie noted. “One top Hollywood veteran notes Epstein was very interested in show business and would reach out for information about the industry.”

The report also says that Epstein’s longtime gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell – who has been accused of helping Epstein commit illegal acts — “has been spotted at top-tier awards-season parties in New York and Los Angeles” mingling with everyone from now-disgraced movie mogul Weinstein to billionaire Jeff Bezos.

Meanwhile, New York Magazine published a breakdown of Epstein’s stunning rolodex, which includes high-powered friends from all walks of life.

“They’ve visited his private island, flown on his private jet, and had him as a guest in their homes. Most of the well-known figures linked to Epstein have not been accused of any wrongdoing, but a few have been accused of participating in his sex-trafficking ring,” New York magazine’s Adam Raymond and Matt Stieb wrote.

FORMER FBI OFFICIAL: INDICTMENT OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN IS ‘PLACEHOLDER,’ EXPECT DOZENS MORE CHARGES IN NEAR FUTURE

Back in 2015, Gawker published a report headlined simply, “Here is pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book.”

The copy of Epstein’s contact list that Gawker obtained and published included everyone from Alec Baldwin to Courtney Love. HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher even made a crude joke in 2015 that implied he knew about Epstein’s private island estate on the 72-acre Virgin Islands home dubbed by some “Orgy Island.”

An indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed Monday morning against Epstein, who pleaded not guilty during his initial appearance in a New York City federal court.

Prosecutors alleged that Epstein preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14.

Hockey coach who went viral for pro-national anthem message: ‘I take pride in my country’

A Connecticut hockey coach who went viral for telling his players to stand for the American and Canadian national anthems said Thursday he is not going to apologize for asking his players to show respect.

John Krupinsky, an assistant coach for the Danbury Hat Tricks of the Federal Hockey League, appeared on “Fox & Friends” and said the national anthem is important to him.

“I take pride in my country,” said Krupinksy, who is also a police sergeant with the Danbury Police Department.

“I’ve unfortunately seen it cover too many coffins. I think we can take a timeout to give two minutes’ worth of respect to our soldiers, to our firemen, to your policemen. I don’t think that’s asking too much. I’m not going to apologize for asking players to show a little bit of respect when it’s either the American or Canadian national anthem.”

Krupinsky insisted he would let his players protest, but on their own time.

“Some people said, ‘oh you wouldn’t let your players protest.’ I wanna be clear: My players would be free to protest on their day off,” he said. “If they had something they wanted to do. My owners are awesome – they would give them the team bus to go.

“But when they’re playing the national anthem, I don’t think it’s too much to ask your employees to show some respect for the flag and for the country.”

Krupinsky’s video went viral earlier this week. He was seen telling his players that he wouldn’t tolerate anyone disrespecting the national anthem.

“If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f–k out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena,” he said. “We don’t have that problem in hockey. We’re better than that, but there was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that s–t was going to happen.”

He told Todd Starnes on “The Todd Starnes Radio Show” he didn’t expect the video to gain as much traction as it did.

Rosie O’Donnell trashes ‘talentless’ Ivanka Trump, suggests she has ‘incest’ relationship with father

Liberal comedian Rosie O’Donnell viciously went after top White House advisor and First Daughter Ivanka Trump, calling her “talentless” and suggesting she has an incestuous relationship with her father.

Appearing on the “The Michelangelo Signorile Show” on SiriusXM, the conversation began with Ivanka Trump’s heavy presence at the G20 Summit in Japan and President Trump‘s past remarks predicting that his daughter would be the first president.

“Oh, dear lord,” O’Donnell reacted.

“Talk a little bit about Ivanka Trump and what Donald Trump is doing with her,” host Michelangelo Signorile said.

“I don’t know what he’s doing with her…” the former daytime talk show host responded.

“I mean, politically,” Signorile clarified with a chuckle.

“I think he’s been doing bad things with her for a very long time,” O’Donnell explained. “There’s a creepy, incest feel that is very prevalent amongst Donald Trump and his children, or at least his daughter. Very creepy.”

The “Sleepless in Seattle” star, who wore a shirt in support of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, at the interview, held no punches against the president’s daughter.

“I think she’s like, you know a talentless, non-intelligent non-powerful woman,” she continued. “And, I think she’s- it’s laughable to think of her in any kind of public service role. No one in his family has ever been in public service. Why should they start now?”

O’Donnell and President Trump have had a long-lasting feud dating back to his days as a TV star on the hit reality show “The Apprentice.” He famously mocked her at the first GOP primary debate during the 2016 election.

This isn’t the first time someone from Hollywood attacked Ivanka Trump. “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee called the First Daughter a “feckless c—,” something the TBS star later walked back after heavy backlash.

Ingraham: California a ‘Democrat-induced disaster’

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham spoke directly to California Governor Gavin Newsom Wednesday criticizing his response to the homeless crisis after his state gave illegal immigrants Medicaid benefits.

“Gavin, you have runaway homelessness in your state, it’s a total crisis right now. Most notably in San Francisco and L.A. It’s creating filthy and infectious conditions for Californians and especially those low income citizens who don’t send their kids to fancy private schools,” Ingraham said Wednesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

TAMMY BRUCE: BORDER CRISIS PUTS US (AND MIGRANT FAMILIES) AT RISK FOR DANGEROUS INFECTIOUS DISEASES

Newsom signed a bill into law Tuesday making young illegal immigrants eligible for the Medicaid program in California, making it the first state to offer such taxpayer-funded health benefits to low-income adults age 25 and younger regardless of their immigration status.

The Fox News host criticized California Democrats and warned that the rest of the country could become like California if Democrats have their way.

“My friends, it’s all a Democrat-induced disaster. Instead of focusing on things like, I don’t know, mental health, infectious disease problems that are plaguing this state, the politicians of California are spending $98 million more to extend health care to illegals. That’s on top of the billions they already spend on them,” Ingraham said.

“The whole country will soon become the next California if the Democrats get their way.”

Ingraham pointed out that Democrats should prioritize Americans over other nationalities who “violate our laws.”

“These California Democrats and those seeking national office need to recognize that they were elected to represent the American people in this country, not the people from elsewhere who violate our laws to enter our country,” Ingraham said.

Conrad Black: 2020 Dems are ‘ludicrous troop of unqualified candidates’; Biden ‘not up for the job’

The 2020 Democratic field is a collection of nearly two-dozen unqualified presidential hopefuls — led by former Vice President Joe Biden, who is not ready for the job, Conrad Black said Wednesday.

“This ludicrous troop of unqualified candidates is kind of an astonishing herd of people that cannot be taken seriously,” the former media mogul claimed on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

Black, 74, shared his assessment of the Democratic primary field after having spent several weeks abroad, without checking in too much on American news, he said.

CONRAD BLACK BLASTS PROSECUTORS, FBI IN FIRST US INTERVIEW SINCE PARDON FROM TRUMP

“I’ve been in England for six weeks … so you do not get a clear picture” of news events in the U.S., he told host Laura Ingraham.

“It’s striking to me, six weeks after I left, how certain trajectories have confirmed themselves,” he added. “Specifically, the president, as far as I can see, three points up from where he was in the polls and the Democrats are falling out amongst themselves.”

Black, a Canadian-born businessman who was convicted of fraud and later pardoned by President Trump, noted how only a few of the Democratic candidates are getting any solid media attention.

“You’ve got the far left of the Democrats making most of the noise and finally getting smacked down a bit by the establishment,” he said.

“The front-runner Joe Biden, in my opinion, [is] not up to the job, but not for the reasons that Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez … gives. It’s an absurd situation.”

He added he believes Trump has been a very successful president but admitted the president’s “style” leaves a lot to be desired by some critics.

However, any of Trump’s shortcomings pale in comparison to the “discordant gang of people with very little distinction to it in political terms” running against him, Black claimed.

Jesse Watters, Greg Gutfeld blast media for focus on Acosta over Epstein

Westlake Legal Group Watters-Epstein-Acosta-Gutfled_FOX-Getty-AP-FOX Jesse Watters, Greg Gutfeld blast media for focus on Acosta over Epstein Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc ce9ca20e-a6d3-5c60-9ec4-899f81106eca article

Fox News’ Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld criticized the media and Democrats for focusing on Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and not disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein on “The Five” Wednesday.

“Why are we talking about Acosta?” Watters asked. “This is a person, Epstein, who is a serial pedophile. We should be talking about him. We should be talking about his victims and why is there no interest in Bill Clinton, an ex-president who flew all around the world with a known pedophile?”

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS ALLEGED WITH THE ACOSTA PLEA DEAL?

In a press conference earlier Wednesday, Acosta explained why Epstein served only 13 months in jail and registered as a sex offender after pleading guilty in 2008 to two felony prostitution charges, despite facing up to life imprisonment. Epstein was charged this week with sex trafficking and conspiracy during the early 2000s based on new evidence and pleaded not guilty on Monday in New York City federal court.

Acosta claimed that the South Florida U.S. attorney’s office he oversaw at the time had fought for a tougher punishment when state prosecutors were ready to let Epstein “walk free.”

Watters blasted the media for their coverage, saying they don’t really care about Epstein’s victims.

“Why has the media decided to focus on Acosta? It’s just to get a scalp because to me it doesn’t seem like they really care about the victims,” Watters said.

Gutfeld chimed in with his own criticism of the coverage.

“Because we live… in a media world where objective news and the Democratic consensus are exactly the same. So only [in this world] could a Democratic donor’s perversion reflect badly on a Republican,” Gutfeld said, adding that the focus on Acosta was due to Trump holding the nation’s highest office.

“Why is Acosta the story? Because Trump is president,” Gutfeld said.

Annette Roque officially files to divorce Matt Lauer after 20 years of marriage

Matt Lauer’s wife, Annette Roque, has filed for divorce from the former “TODAY” co-host, Fox News has confirmed.

The 52-year-old Roque, a former Dutch model, officially called it quits on her nuptials with Lauer on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the New York State Unified Court System said.

MATT LAUER AND ANNETTE ROQUE’S DIVORCE IS NEARLY FINALIZED

“The case, which is an uncontested matrimonial, was filed on July 9th in State Supreme Court in Suffolk County, New York and is awaiting judicial review of the agreement,” the court said in a statement. “Upon a judge’s signature, it will be sent to the court clerk’s office to be entered. The process could take up to a few months.”

In a statement to People magazine on Wednesday, Roque’s attorney John Teitler told the outlet, “The matter has been settled.”

Lauer and Roque share three children; son Jack, 18, daughter Romy, 15, and son Thijs, 12.

Tuesday’s filing was not the first time Roque has sought to formalize her split from the former TV heavyweight. Court documents obtained by the National Enquirer show Roque filed to divorce Lauer in 2006, claiming he had committed “cruel and inhumane” acts against her. Roque alleged that the seemingly unassuming Lauer often criticized her parenting acumen and acted with “extreme anger and hostility” that put her mental and physical well-being at risk.

Despite the myriad of allegations against Lauer, Roque withdrew her claims just three weeks after filing the paperwork.

Lauer, 61, was fired by NBC in November 2017 after multiple sexual misconduct claims were levied against him in detailed accounts published in Variety and The New York Times.

MATT LAUER AGREES TO PAY ANNETTE ROQUE UP TO $20M IN DIVORCE

Last month, Page Six reported Lauer was “bending over backward” to give Roque everything she wanted in the dissolution of their union, adding that she would receive up to $20 million in assets, including one of the former couple’s homes in the Hamptons – a horse farm in Water Mill.

It is still unclear if whether the couple will offload their palatial North Haven home, Strongheart Manor – a property Lauer took off of Richard Gere’s hands for a cool $36.5 million in 2016.

Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry and his sister, Colleen, are making good progress in their recoveries after liver donation surgeries, their family said Wednesday.

Both siblings are “awake, chatty, and visiting with family,” and incredibly, Ed was even able to walk down the hall on Wednesday to see his younger sister for the first time since the surgery.

Ed’s family said doctors have been encouraged by how well both surgeries went and how their old and new livers have been performing so far.

Ed and Colleen have remained in the ICU, where doctors said they’ll continue recovering.

The Fox News correspondent also wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of love, support and prayers that have been shared since Henry emotionally revealed last weekend he was donating part of his liver to save his sister’s life.

In a piece for FoxNews.com, Henry wrote: “My goal is much simpler: I am determined to do whatever I can to give my sister the greatest gift of all, which quite simply is life.”

He added, “The fact is that the risk of mortality for me is extremely low – less than 1 percent, according to the doctors. I will gladly take on the small risk of what the paperwork I signed at the hospital last week calls a “large midline incision” for the gigantic reward of having my sister around for a very long time.”

Speaking about the decision on “Fox & Friends,” he said the people around him at his job and in his life have helped him bear the burden of taking on the unknown to help save his baby sister.

“Now that I’ve caught my breath, my parents have been great, my wife’s been great, my kids are strong beyond their years,” he said.

“I can’t forget to say that Suzanne Scott, our C.E.O., you know, it’s funny, you feel a burden and then you feel like it’s lifted when people around you help you. Jay Wallace our president, Lauren Petterson as well, one of our great executives — they were asking me to do all kinds of things like go to the debates in Miami and do these things… but you’re running out to the hospital, taking another blood test. I finally just said, Suzanne, I can’t do this, and she was like, go help your sister. Everybody at Fox — and they are amazing… we’re family.”
