Buck Sexton: Dems’ objection to planned ICE raids a step toward ‘mass nullification of immigration law’

Westlake Legal Group AP19172820715514 Buck Sexton: Dems' objection to planned ICE raids a step toward 'mass nullification of immigration law' fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 32053a7d-7e01-5b42-995d-4fb49828afae

Democrats are inching closer to effectively opposing any law governing immigration, according to radio host and former CIA analyst Buck Sexton.

Politicians who made critical statements ahead of planned ICE raids this weekend believe some people can ignore certain laws if the statute does not follow Democratic orthodoxy, Sexton claimed Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

WHY THOSE ICE RAIDS ARE BEING ANNOUNCED IN ADVANCE

“There’s a momentum toward insanity at this point,” he said, adding: “It’s quite clear that they’re engaged in mass nullification of immigration law.”

Sexton was reacting to statements by several Democratic politicians, in a montage played by host Tucker Carlson.

In the video, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called the raids “a crime against humanity.”

Responding, Carlson said he believed Harris was saying that enforcing court-ordered deportations is somehow a crime.

In another example, Hillary Clinton tweeted a cautionary flyer in Spanish with the caption “Por favor comparte” or “please share.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., released a video in which he advised people who receive visits from law enforcement to respond, “No abras la puerta.” (“Do not open the door.”)

“Without a warrant, you do not have to open the door,” Newsom said.

In response, Sexton claimed such politicians are flirting with defying another immigration law.

“They’re getting close to violating another statute of immigration, which is aiding and abetting,” he said.

Carlson further added, “picture a Republican governor making a video, telling voters how to cheat on their taxes, or how to buy illegal guns.”

Starting Sunday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to resume its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants across the country.

The reinvigorated effort comes just weeks after President Trump tweeted that ICE was preparing to kick off days of raids in at least 10 major cities. The operation was halted, however, the day before it was set to start, to give Congress time to arrive at a legislative solution on immigration. Trump said his administration would relaunch the raids after a two-week window, and that time now seems to have arrived.

“It’s unprecedented. But there is a political purpose behind it,” Thomas Kilbride, a retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent and ICE policy adviser, told Fox News. He said the president has tried to get Democrats to come to the table because asylum laws need to change, and this is a way to bargain.

ICE agents are expected to target a minimum of 2,000 immigrants who have already been listed for deportation, but Kilbride said there will be “collateral” fallout.

Michael Knowles: Piece calling ‘Lion King’ fascist ‘the stupidest article I’ve ever read in The Washington Post’

Westlake Legal Group lion-king Michael Knowles: Piece calling 'Lion King' fascist 'the stupidest article I've ever read in The Washington Post' fox-news/travel/general/disney fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc f7aed08b-b201-574a-b9c7-5cfab5584914 Charles Creitz article

“Who knew?”

That’s the reaction from conservative commentator Michael Knowles after a Dutch professor wrote a Washington Post column criticizing Disney’s classic “The Lion King” as both fascist and racist.

Conservatives, moderates and some Democrats have been painted as fascistic, and now animated children’s tales have joined their ranks, Knowles asserted Friday on “The Story.”

“I’m actually just so pleased that for the last three years that every American slightly to the left of Hillary Clinton has been called a fascist — and now we’re in the same company as a beloved Disney cartoon character,” he said.

“This was the stupidest article I’ve ever read in the Washington Post.”

In the article, Utrecht University media studies professor Dan Hassler-Forest argues that the “nostalgic”-feeling Circle of Life scene is “a painful reminder of the film’s ideological agenda: It introduces us to a society where the weak have learned to worship at the feet of the strong.”

“‘The Lion King’ offers us fascist ideology writ large, and there is no obvious way out for the remake. … With the lions standing in for the ruling class, and the “good” herbivores embodying society’s decent, law-abiding citizens, the hyenas transparently represent the black, brown and disabled bodies that are forcefully excluded from this hierarchical society,” Hassler-Forest wrote.

In his response, Knowles said the professor’s claims are an example of the problems he sees on college campuses.

“The trouble is this was written by a professor, and that tells you all you need to know about higher education,” he said.

“Everything they don’t like is Hitlerian. … Kingdoms are fascistic,” he continued, adding the latter conclusion must be “news to” the U.K.’s Queen Elizabeth II.

Knowles said he sees “The Lion King” as a charming tale based on themes in “Hamlet” and the Old Testament books of Genesis and Exodus.

Louisiana governor says storm named Barry is ‘going to be a tough one’

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards voiced concerns Friday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that residents would not take Tropical Storm Barry seriously, even though it is expected to become a full-blown hurricane by the time it hits the Louisiana coast on Saturday morning.

“My biggest concern is that we will have citizens who understand that it’s a Category 1 and they may not take it as seriously as they should have. Because this is has always been a rain event predominantly,” Edwards said.

“And we’re going to have 15 to 20 inches of rain across most of southern Louisiana for about 24 hours.”

TROPICAL STORM BARRY’S PATH: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

Tropical Storm Barry is bringing flooding and rainfall, threatening cities like New Orleans and unsettling government officials.

Barry is forecast to dump 10 to 20 inches of rain on New Orleans through Sunday. Some isolated areas could see as much as 25 inches.

Edwards advised residents to “take every precaution, to be patient,” and to listen to their local elected officials.

The governor also told MacCallum that he expected Barry to be “a tough one,” noting that even after the rains stop, river swelling may cause problems for residents and officials.

“I worry an awful lot about the rain as it falls, not as it relates to the Mississippi River but all the other rivers that we have across south Louisiana,” Edwards said.

Jesse Watters: Dems ‘the party of open borders and that’s just a fact’

Is the Democratic Party advocating for open borders?

Fox News’ Jesse Watters said as much in the wake of their reaction to President Trump’s defense of upcoming Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement (ICE) raids.

“You have Democrats saying don’t follow the laws of our country. They want American citizens to follow the laws but they don’t want illegal aliens so at this point you have to think, do they want any enforcement? They don’t want it in the interior. They don’t want it at the border,” Watters said.

“They don’t want you to have to stay in the country that you are and apply when you get there. They don’t want you detained if you commit a crime in a sanctuary city, they don’t want to let us know about it. They don’t even want the federal government to ask you a question, are you a U.S. citizen?”

BORDER APPREHENSIONS DECLINE 28 PERCENT FOLLOWING US-MEXICO PARTNERSHIP, DHS SAYS

The “Watters’ World” host then outlined what he believes Democrats are “offering” illegal immigrants.

“What they do want, they want to give you an American job. They want to give you a driver’s license, in-state college tuition and they want to give you free health insurance. So at this point, the Democrats are the party of open borders and that’s just a fact,” Watters said.

Co-host Greg Gutfeld praised Trump and the logic of the immigration raids.

“Word gets out that we’re going to deport people who are there illegally disincentivizes people from coming here. It’s the opposite of waving caravans through,” Gutfeld said.

The Greg Gutfeld Show” host said he believed Democrats were “losing” the American public over the issue of immigration.

“So these are two things that human beings understand fairness and incentives. These are two things that the Democrats can’t get into their thick skulls. And that’s why they’re losing the American public and they’re devouring themselves,” Gutfeld said.

Deputy CBP commissioner says ‘targeted changes’ needed to address border crisis

Westlake Legal Group Charles-Payne-split Deputy CBP commissioner says 'targeted changes' needed to address border crisis fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/your-world fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3ca92512-4972-5d2f-9f8e-4cf8d76bbbca

The crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border is finally being accepted as such but Congress must allow for specific policy changes that will alleviate the turmoil, according to a Customs and Border Protection official.

The funding Congress approved is helping conditions but there is a long way to go until the border is secure and detainees are handled efficiently, CBP Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez claimed Friday on “Your World.”

“We have been, in CBP and the Department of Homeland Security, sounding the alarm on the overcrowding and the unprecedented migration crisis for the better part of 18 months,” he said.

“It’s universally accepted now that we do have a crisis.

“And now, we need targeted changes to the legal framework to get to the heart of the matter.”

In addition, Perez said his department needs help going after people he believes to be willing participants accentuating the crisis.

“Alien smuggling organizations are profiting off the back of this crisis — off the back of children by virtue of smuggling children and using them as virtual passports across the border… to profit their illegal endeavors.

“The targeted changes to the legal framework absolutely have to change to end this crisis.”

In regard to critiques from lawmakers who claim officials have been less than forthcoming about conditions on the border and have aggravated the situation, Perez said his officers have acted responsibly.

“We have been open and honest about that discussion,” he said.

“We’ve invited congressional delegations every month, multiple times… in addition to all of the oversight that we’ve had to our facilities so that they could see first hand the challenges we are facing.”

Ingraham: ‘Left’ trying to destroy what it means to be American

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham addressed Thursday the agenda to “destroy” what it means to be American blasting the left for trying to take away the county’s identity.

“The historical purge that we are witnessing all over the country is part of a larger agenda. To destroy what it means to be American. And it’s getting more audacious by the day,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday.

LAWRENCE JONES TALKS TO MINNESOTA RESIDENTS ABOUT COUNCIL NIXING PLEDGE

The Fox News host addressed a controversy in a Minnesota city involving the Pledge of Allegiance.

“In St. Louis Park, Minnesota, the geniuses on the city council there recently decided to ban the Pledge of Allegiance from town meetings. Their reason? To create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community. Oh, welcoming to everybody but Americans who actually love the pledge,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham took on members of the “left” who view America as “illegitimate.”

“The easiest path to social media start today is one where you take cheap swipes and America symbols and traditions,” she said.

Ingraham called these attacks on what it means to be American part of a “power grab” by those on the “left.”

“Our progress on racial issues is conveniently ignored by cynical actors who are, frankly, using these past horrors for a power grab and, they hope, a total reorganization of our society here and a massive wealth confiscation,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham warned that country would pay a price for not defending history.

“There is a price for surrendering your sovereignty and your identity and we are going to pay it if we don’t defend our history and our traditions,” Ingraham said.

Graham: Republicans likely to take back the House in 2020

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. advised President Trump to “be quiet” and show up for reelection in 2020, responding to policies that Democrats are proposing and infighting within their party.

“If I’m President Trump I’d go to Florida and show up next November and get reelected,” Graham said on “Hannity” Thursday.

Graham expressed optimism for Trump in the 2020 elections. He offered unsolicited advice to the president and said “be quiet” and let the Democrats continue their talk of decriminalizing border crossing and free health care for illegal immigrants.

“This is insane. You know it’s insane,” Graham said.

Graham also responded to infighting within the Democratic Party, particularly between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

The South Carolina senator said that Republicans were likely to take back the  House in 2020

“I think Republicans are more likely to take the House because of this breakdown because there are 31 Democrats that hold congressional seats where President Trump won their congressional district,” Graham said.

“What does it mean to these 31? If you cross AOC and the ‘fab four’ you’re going to get a primary. And if you vote with them you’re going to lose in the general election. So the biggest beneficiary of this will be the Republican Party and President Trump because the policies these four people are pushing are so out of the mainstream.”

Kevin McCarthy: AOC and socialist Dems are ‘taking over’ the party from Pelosi, moderates

The ongoing dispute between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., isn’t just a feud — it’s part of an intraparty war, according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The clash also shows the left wing of the party is becoming more prevalent, McCarthy claimed Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“This is internal war. This isn’t a family feud, this is beyond what anyone thinks,” he said.

“They’re challenging these Democrats in primaries,” he said of the progressives’ actions against moderates in the party.

HOUSE DEM BLASTS ‘JUVENILE’ OCASIO-CORTEZ, CHIEF OF STAFF: ‘IGNORANCE IS BEYOND BELIEF’

“The socialist Democrats are taking over. Not only are they taking over the party, they’re going to take on any Democrat in that process as well.”

Referring to Ocasio-Cortez, McCarthy said the Democrat — whose district includes parts of the Bronx and Queens in New York City — is a strong voice in the party, but only until another party member stands up to her.

“She’ll fight until you fight back,” he said. “Then, she wants to play a race card or something.”

PELOSI RESPONDS TO AOC SLAM, SAYS CAUCUS HAS HER BACK FOR CONDEMNING CHIEF OF STAFF’S ‘OFFENSIVE’ TWEET

Ocasio-Cortez’s disagreement with caucus leadership led to a rebuke from a longtime House member from Kansas City.

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Ocasio-Cortez, slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that Pelosi is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race.

Speaking to Fox News on Thursday, Clay hammered Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said. “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi.”

Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators.”

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members,” Clay said. “They will have to learn to be effective legislators.”

Rudy Giuliani: New video of Trump accuser whose case was dismissed shows ‘people feel empowered to say anything they want’

Westlake Legal Group Rudy-Giuliani-Getty Rudy Giuliani: New video of Trump accuser whose case was dismissed shows 'people feel empowered to say anything they want' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article ab9b9cb6-1a02-5958-b637-5631f3159be5

Video of an encounter between President Trump and a former campaign staffer that was the subject of a now-dismissed lawsuit shows people feel emboldened to lodge claims, according to Rudy Giuliani.

Many of those people often fail to apologize for spreading claims of any sort against the president, Giuliani, an attorney for the president, claimed Thursday on “Hannity.”

“Luckily, we have the footage because some people would just believe it,” the former New York City mayor said, referring to video released this week of the encounter in question between Trump and Alva Johnson. “I think it’s because a lot of the media has created this hysteria about the president.”

JUDGE DISMISSES LAWSUIT OF FORMER CAMPAIGN STAFFER WHO ACCUSED TRUMP OF FORCIBLY KISSING HER

Judge William Jung of the Middle District of Florida dismissed Johnson’s lawsuit in June, but video of the kiss was released by Trump’s lawyers on Wednesday.

Giuliani said he believed the case was indicative of people spreading unsubstantiated claims against the president.

“The whole Mueller investigation was infused with that. … They printed the wildest, craziest lies, and of course they had never apologized for it,” he claimed. “People feel empowered to say anything they want.”

According to Politico, Jung tossed out Johnson’s complaint  last month and said in his 15-page order that “the complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit.”

Jung added, “If plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”

Johnson was director of outreach and coalitions for the Alabama GOP primary in 2016 and later did similar work in Florida.

The former staffer told MSNBC in February that in August 2016, she briefly interacted with Trump on an RV during a campaign stop in Florida. Before he stepped off the vehicle to speak with campaign interns, she told him to “Go kick ass” and said she hadn’t seen her family in a very long time. Johnson said Trump held her hand and began getting closer.

“This accusation is absurd on its face. This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eyewitness accounts,” then-White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in February.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke Thursday about what he saw as top Democrats’ apparently shifting feelings about former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s scheduled testimony next week.

According to the AP, Democrats are now beginning to listen to Hannity,” he said.

“They’re worried about next Wednesday’s hearing — I’m excited about it.

“Those questions have all been thoroughly answered in the exhaustive, frankly political, poorly written… 448-page report.”

The “Hannity” host added that no matter their sudden concerns, some Democrats still wanted to beat the drum of collusion between President Trump and Russia, using Mueller’s testimony to advance their cause.

HANNITY: DEMS ABUSING THEIR POWER, GUILTY OF ‘PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT’

“In their desperate effort to keep their Russia collusion hoax, their conspiracy theories alive for as long as possible, Chairman Jerry Nadler of the Judiciary Committee, and Intel Chair Adam ‘The Cowardly’ Schiff, are forcing Bob Mueller to testify in public on Capitol Hill.”

Hannity claimed Rep. Schiff, D-Calif., in his capacity as House Intelligence Committee chairman, has been overseeing yet another investigation that was needlessly badgering Trump.

“The cowardly Schiff is conducting a separate sixth investigation,” he said, labeling the work of the California lawmaker’s colleague, “Jerry’s subpoena party.”

He continued: “This is harassment. They should be caring about what is a desperate situation at the border.

“They’re not doing anything to help the American people. They don’t have any agenda that’s going to solve our problems.”

In light of that allegation, Hannity said Democrats have been content instead to point to Trump and accuse him of collusion despite the Russia investigation’s conclusions.

“It’s a card that they keep playing over and over again — Russia, Russia, Russia,” he said.

While Mueller is at the Capitol, Republicans should take the opportunity to grill him themselves, Hannity advised.

“Republicans should focus on the litany of what are unanswered questions that we have previewed on this program last night,” he said. “The political bias, the prosecutorial misconduct, politics, conflicts of interest.”
