Rabbi wounded in synagogue shooting urges Trump to bring ‘moment of silence’ back to schools

The heroic rabbi who was wounded in the California synagogue shooting last Saturday said President Trump is supportive of reintroducing a “moment of silence” back into public schools.

Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, who wasn’t on the official schedule, was invited by Trump to the podium at the service for the National Day of Prayer. As Trump stated: “There was no one who expressed the horror and beauty of what you represent better than you did.”

Goldstein, with bandages on his hands, recalled the horrific moment the shooter entered his synagogue. And he said one thing that will help the healing is bringing back the moment of silence in school.

“Children [are] not growing up with values that our Founding Fathers started,” he said. “Something seems fundamentally wrong when there’s a generation of kids growing up doing what they’re doing.”

One person died in the shooting.

“Just five days ago, on Saturday morning, I faced evil in the worst darkness of all time right in our own house of worship, right at Chabad of Poway,” Goldstein said to the faith leaders gathered in the Rose Garden. “I faced him and I had to make a decision: Do I run and hide or do I stand tall and fight and protect all those that are there?”

DR. RONNIE FLOYD: ‘OUR NATION NEEDS PRAYER TODAY MORE THAN EVER BEFORE’

He recalled the words of his Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, who taught him “the way we react to darkness is with light.”

“It was that moment that I made a decision, that no matter what happens to me I was going to save as many people as possible. I should’ve been dead by now based on the rule of statistics. I was in the line of fire, bullets flying all the way, my fingers got blown off, but I did not stop. The rebbe taught me, as a soldier of God, you need to stand tall and stand fast do what it takes to change the world.”

TRUMP: ‘VIOLENCE AND TERRORISM AGAINST PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS MUST END’

“My life has changed forever,” he continued, “but it changed so that I can make change, and that I can help others learn how to be strong and mighty and tall. Many have asked me, ‘Rabbi, where do we go from here? How do we prevent this?'”

“My response is what the Rebbe [said] when President Ronald Reagan was shot. The Rebbe said we need to go back to the basics and introduce a Moment of Silence in all public schools,” the rabbi said to applause. “So that children from early childhood on can recognize that there is more good to the world, that they are valuable, there is accountability and every human being is created in God’s image. If something good will come out of this terrible, terrible horrific event, let us bring back a Moment of Silence to our public school system … ”

The rabbi ended by thanking Trump for his response as a “mensch par excellence.”

Goldstein turned to Trump: “Mr. President when you called me I was at home weeping. You were the first person who began my healing. You heal people in their worst of times and I’m so grateful for that. You have helped me bring great honor to Mrs. Lori Kaye…”

Trump called him a “great man” with “beautiful words.”

MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATS WANT TO REMOVE ‘GOD’ FROM OATH OF OFFICE

“He said this is my greatest moment in life,” Trump added. ” To go from darkness to the White House.”

Goldstein was accompanied by congregants and fellow heroes of the attack, Oscar Stewart, the combat veteran who chased the shooter from the synagogue; and Jonathan Morales, the off-duty border-patrol agent who took up the chase and managed to shoot the attacker’s car several times.

The president asked both men to share a few words. Like his rabbi, Morales quoted the Rebbe and asked his audience to increase in mitzvah observance and acts of goodness and kindness.

Following the rabbi’s emotional remarks, the president thanked him, saying that “truly your courage and grace and devotion touches every heart and soul in America.”

Sarah Sanders: Russia investigation is over, ‘time for Democrats to move on’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders assailed Democrats on Thursday for “outrageous questioning” of Attorney General Wiliam Barr at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom,” Sanders characterized Democrats as obsessed with finding collusion or obstruction by President Trump despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s lengthy investigation and report.

“We’ve been transparent this entire process,” Sanders said. “We’ve put forward dozens of people to talk with the special counsel, 1.4 million pages of documents, we’ve been fully transparent.”

“This thing is over,” she said. “It’s time for Democrats to move on. They can’t continue to drag this thing out and continue to put the American people through this. Look, there was no collusion, there was no obstruction. Now they need to come together and work with the president to actually fix real problems.

“They’ve shown they aren’t capable of working with us on immigration, but maybe they could help on infrastructure or lowering prescription drugs.”

Barr skipped a House hearing Thursday on Mueller’s Trump-Russia report, escalating an already acrimonious battle between Democrats and the president’s Justice Department. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Barr had already lied to Congress in other testimony and called that a “crime.”

Barr’s decision to avoid the hearing, made after a disagreement with the House Judiciary Committee over questioning, came the day after the department also missed the committee’s deadline to provide it with a full, unredacted version of Mueller’s report and its underlying evidence. In all, it’s likely to prompt a vote on holding Barr in contempt and possibly the issuance of subpoenas, bringing House Democrats and the Trump administration closer to a prolonged battle in court.

Democrats convened a short hearing that included an empty chair with a place card set for Barr. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York said that if the attorney general doesn’t provide the committee “with the information it demands and the respect that it deserves, Mr. Barr’s moment of accountability will come soon enough.”

Shortly afterward, Pelosi escalated the tensions further. In a possible reference to the attorney general’s testimony earlier this month, Pelosi said Barr “was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States — that’s a crime.”

Sanders said on “America’s Newsroom” that “Democrats embarrassed themselves yesterday.”

“The attorney general sat for five hours yesterday, and answered every question put in front of him,” Sanders said. “He was willing to sit down again with the House…the Democrats have changed the rules in the middle of the game. They took a vote yesterday, a special vote in order to allow staff to question the attorney general. He is a cabinet member for the president of the United States. And this is a straightforward oversight hearing in which members of Congress should be able to ask those questions.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., cut Rep. Matt Gaetz’s, R-Fla., mic at Thursday’s hearing about the Mueller report, where members sparred over Attorney General William Barr’s decision to not attend after Democrats insisted committee lawyers be allowed to question him.

Gaetz took to Twitter to admonish Nadler’s mic-pull tweeting “Judiciary Democrats say AG Barr is “terrified.” Yesterday he testified for over five hours in an open hearing. Today, they cut off my microphone. #WhoIsTerrified?”

Democrats put their own twist on Barr’s no-show, with Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn bringing a bucket of KFC to the hearing and placing it beside Barr’s empty seat.

“We will not hear from the attorney general today but this committee intends to get the information it needs to conduct the constitutional oversight and legislative responsibilities,” Nadler said before the committee on Thursday. “We will defend the constitutional scheme of equal and coordinate branches of government, we will make sure that no president becomes a monarch. We need the information without delay the hearing.”

As Nadler banged his gavel at the end of the session. Ranking Member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., accused Nadler of “trampling the minority” party as Gaetz simultaneously tried question the Democrat’s format, which Republicans are opposed, and instead had his mic pulled mid-sentence.

“Is it going to be, Mr. Chairman, there is not going to be a recognition of members who seek legitimate inquiry as to the procedures,” Gaetz said before being cut off. He proceeded to walk out of the hearing room when he realized his mic had no sound.

Nadler has threatened to issue a citation in contempt of Congress against Barr since he did not attend the hearing.

Judge Napolitano: AG Barr should have gone to House hearing, he has ‘nothing to hide’

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said that he would have advised Attorney General William Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, adding that he thinks Barr has “nothing to hide.”

Napolitano made the comments on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday, hours before Barr skipped the House hearing — even as the Democrats who lead the committee vowed to hold the hearing anyway, and threatened a possible contempt citation against Barr.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, gaveled a hearing Thursday with an empty chair the day after Barr endured questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee, his first appearance before Congress since the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.

A key sticking point was that Nadler wanted to have House Judiciary Committee staff — rather than members of Congress — question Barr on his handling of Mueller’s report. Barr reportedly wanted only lawmakers to do the questioning and Department of Justice officials said members should conduct the inquiry.

BARR REVEALS TENSIONS WITH MUELLER TEAM OVER RUSSIA PROBE CONCLUSION, OBSTRUCTION PUNT

“My view is the lawyers would ask better questions than the politicians,” Napolitano said on Thursday.

“There’s a follow up in the give and take which we didn’t hear yesterday, which good lawyers, trained in cross-examination, know how to do. The best lawyer in that room (is) the attorney general. He really shouldn’t have anything to fear.”

Napolitano then advised Barr to “go” to the House hearing, but acknowledged, “I guess it’s too late to do it now.”

“Let anybody ask you the questions you want,” Napolitano said as he explained the advice he would offer Barr. “In your view, you have nothing to hide. They will ask far better questions than the politicians did.”

Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said Wednesday that Democrats “plan on subpoenaing” Barr “if he decides not to show up.”

Several top Democrats, including Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, have called for Barr’s resignation in the wake of his Senate testimony on Wednesday. The hearing covered everything from Barr’s decision not to pursue an obstruction case against President Trump to process delays in getting a redacted version of Mueller’s report to the public to Mueller’s apparent concerns about how Barr initially relayed his findings to Congress.

On Capitol Hill on Wednesday Sen. Harris, D-Calif., said: “No prosecutor worth her salt would make a decision about whether the president of the United States was involved in an obstruction of justice without reviewing the evidence.”

Harris added that she thinks that Barr should resign.

BARR ACCUSES DEMS OF USING CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROCESS AS ‘POLITICAL WEAPON’ AS HEARING TENSIONS FLARE

“She should know better,” said Napolitano in response. “She is the former attorney general of the state of California. An enormous job. She was the second most important attorney general position in terms of numbers of prosecutions managed in the country. She couldn’t possibly look at all the evidence and all the prosecutions.”

“You have 44 FBI agents and 19 lawyers supervised by Bob Mueller. You trust that when they come to a conclusion, they have eyeballed all the evidence.”

He added: “It would be absurd for Bill Barr to have examined everything.”

Napolitano went on to say that some of the questions during Wednesday’s Senate hearing were “out of line.”

“He wouldn’t get questions like that lawyer to lawyer. Which is why I argue the attorney general should go and let those lawyers ask him questions and we’ll learn more than we learned yesterday,” Napolitano added.

“If you think this was a witch-hunt, I don’t think your mind was changed yesterday. If you think the president committed obstruction of justice (and) Bill Barr wouldn’t let Bob Mueller indict him, I don’t think your mind was changed yesterday.”

Napolitano said, “the real show” will come when Mueller testifies on Capitol Hill, if it ever comes to pass.

Mike Huckabee says Dems have ‘got nothing’ on Barr, were ‘rude and disrespectful’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6032055991001_6032057384001-vs Mike Huckabee says Dems have 'got nothing' on Barr, were 'rude and disrespectful' Victor Garcia 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 fnc/politics fnc article 43adc82a-db82-5f60-88f9-c2358f306cae

Democrats have “got nothing” in trying to discredit Attorney General William Barr on the Mueller report, former Republican presidential candidate and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Wednesday.

“They are like people who show up at the barbecue restaurant at closing time and all the meat is gone,” Huckabee said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“So, what they are left to do is just lick the bones, gnaw on them a little bit and suck the barbecue sauce out of the bottle. They have nothing else to do,” Huckabee told host Laura Ingraham.

Barr testified Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he addressed his decision not to pursue an obstruction case against President Trump and the delay in the release of the redacted version of Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation.

BARR: MUELLER REPORT IS DONE. WE NEED TO STOP USING DOJ AS ‘POLITICAL WEAPON’

During the hearing, several Democrats called on Barr to resign, including Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. Harris is seeking her party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

Huckabee described the Democrats’ treatment of Barr as “rude and disrespectful.”

“And I think in a way, I almost felt sorry watching them. But then I didn’t because [they were] so rude and disrespectful of the attorney general. And how he maintained his composure and didn’t crawl across the table and go after a few of them as a testament to diplomacy, grace and being a gentleman,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee also reacted to a New York Times op-ed by former FBI Director James Comey.

In a piece titled “How Trump Co-Opts Leaders Like Bill Barr,” Comey wrote, “Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites.”

Huckabee disagreed with Comey and warned that the former FBI director may soon face troubles of his own.

“First of all, he’s dead wrong about Donald Trump. Donald Trump does not eat people’s soul in small bites,” Huckabee said. “He takes it in one great big chomp and it’s over and he’s done with it. It is one of the reasons he’s president because he does know how to take on an adversary. Jim Comey has a lot of explaining to do.”

Radio host Rush Limbaugh ripped Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii Wednesday over her treatment of Attorney General William Barr during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Mueller report, calling her “ignorant” and “a liar.”’

Limbaugh said Hirono mischaracterized Barr’s work and — like Sen. Lindsey Graham– accused the senator of “slandering” his integrity. “He didn’t change anything in the Mueller report,” Limbaugh said on his radio show.

BARR: MUELLER REPORT IS DONE. WE NEED TO STOP USING DOJ AS ‘POLITICAL WEAPON’

Barr’s testimony Wednesday was wide-ranging. It covered his decision not to pursue an obstruction case against President Trump and the delay in the release of the redacted version of the report.

Hirono accused Barr of lying to Congress and said he should resign.

“Mr. Barr, now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani or Kellyanne Conway or any of other people who sacrifice their once-decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office,” Hirono said to Barr during a long build-up to a question.

Committee chairman, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., cut Hirono off. “You slandered this man from top to bottom,” Graham said to the Hawaii senator.

Limbaugh argued that Hirono never intended to ask any meaningful questions to Barr but really intended to hurt his “integrity.”

“It was the kill session. Her mission during these hearings has been to kill Barr professionally, and his integrity,” Limbaugh said.
 
The radio host blamed Hirono’s “poisonous hatred” for President Trump for her treatment of Barr.
 
“I think it is her essential consuming, poisonous hatred for Donald Trump, and Barr is the way she can get to Trump today, so Barr becomes her target,” Limbaugh said.

Bret Easton Ellis, noted American author, appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday and talked about the continued reaction of “hysterical liberals” to President Trump.

The author of “Less Than Zero,” “American Psycho” and “The Rules of Attraction” said that today’s political climate has created an environment in which anyone who doesn’t “adamantly condemn” Trump with “a hysterical overreaction” is deemed colluding with the president.

“I’m a freethinker in many ways,” Ellis told host Tucker Carlson, “and I did see something wrong with the portrayal of Trump in the media. I thought the media was covering him in a way that wasn’t necessarily truthful.”

He told Carlson that although he didn’t vote for Trump, his observation about the media got him marked as a “psycho rightwing guy.”

“I suddenly got branded a conservative,” he said, noting he is a fictional author and believes his ideology is middle of the road and nonpartisan.

He reckoned that the liberal xenophobia stems from a cognitive dissonance: coastal elites who are entitled and who felt betrayed by Trump’s win.

His latest book, “White,” is his first work of nonfiction that is about what he calls, “Generation Wuss,” otherwise known as the young who are branded as overly sensitive snowflakes.

He hopes that a pushback happens for the left’s “authoritarian language belief” of what can and can’t be said in the realms of art and creativity.

Neither side likes the hyper-tyrannical political correctness, but the end of policing thought and speech isn’t yet in sight, Ellis says.

He noted: “I’ve never tried to offend anyone, and I’m always amazed how I’ve managed to trigger generation after generation after generation.”

Rep. Gabbard on Venezuela: Trump WH ‘saber-rattling,’ US should broker diplomatic solution with Russia

2020 presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, bashed the Trump administration Wednesday in a Fox News interview, accusing the White House of “saber-rattling” and saying the U.S. should work with Russia to avoid a potential nuclear conflict over Venezuela.

“Any time we are in this situation where you have tensions being ratcheted up and this conflict being pushed closer and closer between nuclear-armed countries like the United States and countries like Russia and China, this is something that poses an existential threat to the American people,” Gabbard said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

“And, when you hear this kind of saber-rattling coming from the Trump administration from people like [National Security Adviser] John Bolton and [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo, pushing this civil war and for the United States to get involved, we are dealing with dangerous consequences.”

FORMER VENEZUELA U.N. DELEGATE: ‘THIS IS A POINT OF NO RETURN’

Violence erupted in Venezuela between protesters and military forces again Wednesday as both the country’s disputed president, Nicolas Maduro, and opposition leader, Juan Guaido, vied for power.

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Caracas as part of a rebellion that has represented the most serious challenge to Maduro’s rule.

I have seen firsthand the high cost of war and pushing for this civil war, pushing for the use of military force, will only end up with more suffering and death and disaster for the Venezuelan people.

— Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii

Gabbard argued that interfering in regime change would not have a “positive impact” on the people of Venezuela.

“The United States is not helping the situation by interfering and basically pushing for externally yet another regime change war that history shows us has not turned out to have a positive impact on people in the countries where we wage these wars. That’s why I’m pushing for diplomacy,” Gabbard told Martha MacCallum.

The Hawaii congresswoman also cited America’s history with overthrowing governments and dictators saying that brokering a diplomatic solution with Russia would have a better outcome.

Pompeo on Tuesday told Fox News that Maduro was ready to leave Venezuela as unrest grew — until Russia convinced him to stay.

“I’m saying that when we look throughout history, every time the United States goes into another country, and topples a dictator or topples a government the outcome has been disastrous for the people in these countries,” Gabbard said.

“That’s why we should use our leadership in the world to try to broker a diplomatic solution working with countries like Russia that have great influence over Venezuela so that there is a peaceful outcome — because I can tell you as a soldier, Martha, I have seen firsthand the high cost of war and pushing for this civil war, pushing for the use of military force, will only end up with more suffering and death and disaster for the Venezuelan people.”

Fox News’ Nicole Darrah and Martha MacCallum contributed to this report.

Juan Williams and Jesse Watters clash over Venezuela and guns on ‘The Five’

Fox News’ Juan Williams and Jesse Watters clashed over guns Wednesday on “The Five” while responding to an MSNBC reporter accidentally making the case for the Second Amendment in coverage of the political crisis in Venezuela.

“You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country,” MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders said Tuesday.

FORMER VENEZUELA U.N. DELEGATE: ‘THIS IS A POINT OF NO RETURN’

Watters reacted by criticizing the media for not focusing on “reality.”

“The media never looks to reality for examples. They can see everything happening all over the world, but when you say, ‘OK, what about its impact here in the United States?’ they never take that to heart,” Watters said.

The ‘Watters’ World’ host then began listing government abuse and mentioned Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams for advocating gun confiscation, while defending the Second Amendment as an important difference between America and Venezuela.

Williams did not agree.

“Do you think if those people had guns there would be anything but more chaos, more violence and more death?” Williams asked. “Let me ask you, New York City, you think if you have a gun you could stand up to the New York City Police Department, much less the state National Guard or the U.S. military?

“I think if the American people are armed to the teeth,” Watters responded.

“Get them more guns!” Wiliams said in disbelief.

Co-host Jedediah Bilah jumped in and argued that the Venezuelan people were “powerless” without the ability to defend themselves, a notion Williams disputed and called a “fantasy.”

“This is a fantasy. First of all, it’s an apples and oranges comparison between the U.S. and another country,” Williams said.

“There is no reality to the idea that if some people had handguns, automatic weapons, they could stand up to the military. No. That’s an invitation to more death and chaos. It’s a reach by people trying to make the argument for guns for everyone in the U.S.”

Retired military leaders to lawmakers: Don’t ‘sacrifice funds’ for F-35 jets

More than 100 retired military leaders sent a letter to members of Congress on Tuesday urging them not to “sacrifice funds from the F-35 program,” adding that the F-35, the military’s newest fighter jet, is “essential to countering emerging threats.”

The letter included 128 signatures from retired admirals and generals, including four former Air Force chiefs of staff and a former chief of naval operations.

It was sent on the same day that the Air Force announced it had used its variant of the F-35 aircraft in combat for the first time, taking out an Islamic State (ISIS) tunnel network and weapons cache in Iraq.

INSIDE THE F-35 FACTORY, WHERE STEALTH BEGINS

Defense News reported that according to Air Forces Central Command, Tuesday’s airstrike occurred at Wadi Ashai, in northeast Iraq. A news release from U.S. Central Command six days before said ISIS fighters “have been attempting to move munitions, equipment and personnel” to the area in order to “set conditions for their resurgence,” prompting a counteroffensive by Iraqi Security Forces.

The website reported that more information about the event, including whether the strikes were successful, was not immediately available.

The letter, sent to members of the House and Senate, said, “As former U.S. Flag Officers who have served in times of sequestration and military conflicts, we know the impact cutting costs from vital programs has on defense readiness.

“With China and Russia aggressively ramping up efforts to improve and modernize weapons, maintaining air superiority is essential to countering emerging threats both at home and abroad.”

The letter said the U.S. must “advance both capacity and capability of our fighter force with continued procurement of the world’s most advanced fighter, the F-35 Lightning II,” in order to maintain “a competitive edge in the skies.”

According to Defense News, the F-35 program has been threatened by cost and schedule overruns since its start about two decades ago, and the Government Accountability Office estimates that the program will cost more than $1 trillion.

ISRAEL SAYS IT’S THE FIRST COUNTRY TO USE F-35 STEALTH FIGHTER JETS IN ‘OPERATIONAL ATTACK’

The retired admirals and generals sent the letter to the chairman and ranking members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees as well as the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Defense, to stress the importance of these fighter jets.

“As the only 5th-generation aircraft in production, the F-35 ensures air advantage over emerging peer adversaries through cutting-edge technologies,” the letter said.

“It is with the nation’s security interest in mind that we join the nearly 130 U.S. House and Senate Congressional members to request that the Congress increase the procurement rate of the F-35 within the Fiscal Year 2020 defense authorization and appropriations.”

The letter went on to say, “It is essential that our Congress does not sacrifice funds from the F-35 program in favor of new 4th generation, legacy fighter programs with little operational relevance in a near peer conflict.”

Fox News contacted the House and Senate Armed Services Committees, as well as the Appropriations Subcommittees on Defense; all did not immediately return requests for comment.
