Gutfeld: Dems ‘dehumanize’ unborn babies

“The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld responded to Democratic stances on abortion by accusing them of using politics to “dehumanize” babies.

Gutfeld said Democrats’ logic — likening a fetus to a clump of cells — was political more than scientific. “It shows you how politics can dehumanize,” he said.

“So, politics dictates human life now,” he added, “which is kind of what it was before the Civil War,” he said, in an apparent reference to the institution of slavery in the U.S.

His comments came after Christine Quinn, former speaker of the New York City Council, said on CNN that fetuses weren’t human beings but rather part of women’s bodies.

“When a woman gets pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her. It is part of her body, and this is about a woman having full agency and control of her body and making decisions about her body and what is part of her body with medical professionals,” she said.

Gutfeld suggested that this was “a denial of science.” “When someone’s heart stops beating, the hospital staff or bystanders in a public place will do the best to revive the heart. … When the heart is beating, you are alive,” he said.

He went on to say that while Dems often paint Republicans as science deniers, “the most anti-science party is always going to be the left.”

“They don’t believe in differences between gender, right? … Now, there’s no difference to them, to her — Christine Quinn — there’s no difference between life and death. If you decide that the heartbeat is not a vital sign of life, kill anything. Go for it,” he said of Quinn’s argument.

ABBY JOHNSON, SUBJECT OF ‘UNPLANNED,’ AMPLIFIES HER BABY’S HEARTBEAT WITH 4D ULTRASOUND IN TIMES SQUARE

Abortion has become a prominent topic leading up to the 2020 elections as some Democrats push legislation to protect abortion access — stoking criticism from President Trump and anti-abortion groups.

Trump and Republican legislators have promoted initiatives restricting access to abortion. The administration, in particular, faced criticism and legal challenges over both its so-called “gag rule” and decision to beef up protections for doctors who have “conscience” objections to performing abortions.

Republicans have also pushed a variety of restrictions, including “heartbeat” legislation which would effectively bar abortions after a doctor can hear a heartbeat.

Debate over the issue reignited on Tuesday after Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims, harassed pro-life activists standing outside a Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia. In response, pro-life leaders pledged to hold their own demonstration there on Friday and encouraged Sims to attend.

Rep. Lesko: Dems favor political theater over real issues like the border

House Judiciary Committee member Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., on Wednesday accused Democrats of trying to “undermine” the president and avoid working on important issues like border, instead opting for the  “political theater” of the Mueller investigation.

“So you know, week after week in the Judiciary Committee instead of actually working on big issues like securing the border — since I’m from Arizona, it’s important to the people throughout the nation — all we’re doing is seeing political theater,” Lesko said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’ 

The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to recommend holding Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying documents, after President Trump asserted executive privilege in a bid to protect those files from release.

Lesko was asked by Cavuto about the Democratic leadership’s next move. Lesko noted the absurdity of the last few weeks on the committee and said it was all about the 2020 presidential election.

“For goodness’ sake, last week we had a congressman bring fried chicken and pose in front of cameras with a ceramic chicken. This is crazy. The American people that I talk to, they want us to work together to get big issues done. Not this political theater, this is nothing more than the Democrats trying to undermine the president of the United States and it’s all about the 2020 presidential election,” Lesko said.

WHITE HOUSE BLOCKS MCGAHN FROM PRODUCING DOCUMENTS SUBPOENAED BY HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

Lesko also criticized Mueller for not coming to a definitive conclusion in his report, leading to an even greater divide between Republicans and Democrats.

“I wish that Robert Mueller would have said, ‘OK, we’re going to refer to a grand jury for indictment,’ or, ‘We’re not.’ Instead, this whole thing has made it very confusing. A lot of different speculation. I really don’t understand why he did that,” Lesko said.

Klobuchar appears at Fox News Town Hall, seeking to gain standing in crowded field

2020 presidential contender Sen. Amy Klobuchar took the stage at a Fox News Channel Town Hall on Wednesday evening in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as the Minnesota Democrat sought to distinguish herself as a relative moderate among a crowded field of progressive candidates now led by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

The one-hour Town Hall, co-anchored by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, will offer Klobuchar a chance to explain why she hasn’t embraced proposals popular with her party’s left wing, including the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, free college tuition, and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Hours before the Town Hall, Klobuchar, 58, told Fox News in an interview she wasn’t worried about Biden’s decision to run, even though he has assumed frontrunner status by most polls and fundraising metrics.

“I welcome the vice president to the race,” Klobuchar said. “I’ve worked with him for years, but I’m running my own campaign and I bring something that’s different to the race.”

Klobuchar is one of three candidates from the Midwest, along with South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio.

Buttigieg is slated to appear at Fox News Channel Town Hall on May 19, followed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in Iowa on June 2.

“I’m running my own campaign and I bring something that’s different to the race,” Klobuchar said, adding, “I’m from the heartland. My grandpa was an iron ore miner, he worked 1,500 feet underground his whole life. I am the only candidate in the race that is a granddaughter of an iron ore miner and the daughter of a teacher and a newspaperman, the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from the state of Minnesota, and a candidate for president.”

But, Klobuchar likely will again have to respond to allegations that her “Minnesota nice” persona may be only skin-deep. In February, Klobuchar responded to multiple reports that she mistreated staffers in her Capitol Hill office by acknowledging that she’s been a “tough boss” — and did not flat-out deny a report she had thrown a binder at one point.

KLOBUCHAR DOWNPLAYS GREEN NEW DEAL AS ‘ASPIRATIONAL,’ SEEMINGLY ADMITS SHE TOSSED MAD BINDERS AT STAFF

According to a Buzzfeed News report, “one aide was accidentally hit with a flying binder, according to someone who saw it happen, though the staffer said the senator did not intend to hit anyone with the binder when she threw it.”

The outlet also cited numerous staffers claiming Klobuchar routinely sent late-night emails and berated her subordinates over minor details and missteps. Some critics have charged that the insinuations in the reports were sexist against women in managerial positions.

“I don’t know, it’s all anonymous. I will say that I’m proud of our staff,” Klobuchar told Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“Yes, I can be a tough boss, and push people — that’s obvious,” she continued. “But, that’s because I have high expectations of myself, I have high expectations of those who work for me, and I have a high expectation for our country. My chief of staff has worked for me for six years, my state director for seven years, my campaign manager for 14 years.”

The New York Times reported in February that Klobuchar allegedly berated a staff member for failing to bring her a fork with her salad while the senator was traveling to South Carolina in 2008.

Klobuchar not only chastised the aide, but reportedly proceeded to eat the salad using a comb from her bag — then handed the comb to the aide and told him to clean it.

She later explained the bizarre story, saying she was “doing a mom thing.”

“The comb story was me, sort of doing a mom thing. I didn’t have a fork, I used a comb to eat a salad very briefly on a plane,” she said at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, in March.

Earlier this month, Klobuchar released a plan to spend $100 billion over a decade to improve mental health care and fight substance abuse, an issue she faced firsthand as the daughter of an alcoholic who struggled with addiction for years before getting sober.

Fox News’ Paul Steinhauser and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Mike Huckabee rips House Judiciary Committee amid contempt vote: ‘This is all pontificating’

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee accused the House Judiciary Committee of engaging in uneccessary political “theater” as it considered whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

“It produces nothing but extraordinary partisan rancor,” he told “Outnumbered” host Harris Faulkner on Wednesday. He told Faulkner that the committee’s members were “pontificating” and indicated the whole hearing should happen behind closed doors.

The best thing they could do is turn the cameras off … put only the members of Congress in the room and say ‘you guys talk about this.’ But get the cameras out of there and the microphones out of there,” he said.

He added that the hearing was a “waste of our time and money,” saying that “nobody in that room is serious about resolving an issue.”

“They’re serious about trying to present their side, make their side look good, the other side look bad.”

Huckabee’s comments came amid news that President Donald Trump claimed executive privilege — blocking the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted report and other documents — in an apparent response to Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s, D-N.Y., decision not to postpone a vote on contempt.

“Faced with Chairman Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the Attorney General’s request, the President has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

“The Attorney General has been transparent and accommodating throughout this process, including by releasing the no-collusion, no-conspiracy, no-obstruction Mueller Report to the public and offering to testify before the Committee,” Sanders also said.

“These attempts to work with the Committee have been flatly rejected. They didn’t like the results of the report, and now they want a redo.”

Georgia child finds $40G of meth in box of Legos: officials

Westlake Legal Group georgia-child-finds-40g-of-meth-in-box-of-legos-officials Georgia child finds $40G of meth in box of Legos: officials Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/south-carolina fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/georgia fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/genres/crime fox news fnc/us fnc ffa6fe98-2707-5c36-a3ef-cb59392a0a54 article

Investigators with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia said a child found something other than a messy pile of colorful plastic bits in a gift from his mom. He discovered 3.2 pounds of methamphetamine — street value, $40,000 — tucked into what appeared to be an ordinary box of Legos.

Investigator Jim Riggs with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News that a Statesboro, Ga., mother and a couple of her friends drove for about two hours to Charleston, S.C., where they bought the Legos from a consignment shop.

He said when the women returned from the trip and the mother gave her child the toy, there were no Legos to be found inside the container.

What there was, however, was a “big bag of meth.”

“The methamphetamine inside of the box was vacuum sealed, and that keeps it from moving around too much and also helps mask the smell,” said Riggs. He said this was the first time his office had made such a find, “especially in this quantity.”

“On top of the box itself, the Lego box was shrink-wrapped, which is the typical wrapping you find on a toy box or something coming from the factory,” Riggs said. “It was professionally done. It looked like you went to a regular retail store and purchased the box.”

He added, “Somebody took the time to cover the tracks, most definitely.”

Riggs told Fox News the child’s father called the sheriff’s office and told deputies he suspected the box contained illicit drugs.

Riggs said that once the sheriff’s office “field tested” the substance, the results came back positive for meth. The office then contacted the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Charleston, and it was determined that the consignment shop was itself not involved.

Riggs said the owner of the consignment shop told authorities the person who sold her the Legos said they’d been bought at a local auction.

Authorities suspect the package “was delivered to an address, probably a false address, or an abandoned house,” Riggs said.

Riggs said he thinks that “when a mailman got there and determined it was a false address he took it back with him and put it in a pile of undelivered mail and a lot of times those items are put up for auction if there’s no way to return those items.”

Riggs said the women who bought the toy box were fortunate they did not encounter law enforcement on their two-hour drive back to Georgia.

“If the ladies would have been stopped on their way from Charleston to Statesboro by law enforcement, and the methamphetamine would have been found, there would have been a lot of explaining to do. It would have been a bad scene,” Riggs said.

As it stands, the mom, her friends and the consignment shop owner have all cooperated with the investigation.

And an actual culprit? “It would be near impossible to find who did this,” Riggs said, adding that “no charges have been filed at this time.”

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson said Wednesday that internal text messages between two FBI employees should convince the intelligence community’s inspector general to investigate potential leaks in the Trump collusion investigation.

In a letter to Inspector General Michael Atkinson, Johnson, R-Wisc., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said the messages between Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, Lisa Page, “demonstrate the need to investigate leaks from agencies or entities other than FBI.”

Johnson said on “America’s Newsroom” that he wants answers to questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “did not ask.”

“Exactly what was the predicate for this entire investigation?” Johnson said to host Bill Hemmer. “There’s so many unanswered questions. I think the American people have a right to know what was happening inside the Obama administration.”

STRZOK-PAGE TEXTS SUGGEST INTEL AGENCIES LEAKED ON RUSSIA CASE: GOP SENATORS

In 2018, Strzok testified in an often-contentious hearing before the House on the content of text messages critical of President Trump.

Hemmer also asked Johnson about the House Judiciary Committee’s vote on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

Johnson said that the House of Representatives has become “highly politicized” and that with Democrats in charge, Americans will not see “good governance,” but instead a quest for presidential impeachment.

TOP DEM CLAIMS MUELLER REPORT SHOWS RUSSIA ‘ARTIFICIALLY’ PLACED TRUMP IN WHITE HOUSE

Moments before Johnson’s interview, committee member Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said the contention that the Mueller probe was a “witch hunt” — as often described by Trump — was “nonsense.”

“Seventeen different intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia interfered with our election, attacked our democracy for the sole purpose of artificially placing someone at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” the Queens lawmaker said.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, countered that sentiment, calling the proceedings “all about trying to destroy Bill Barr because Democrats are nervous he’s going to get to the bottom of everything. He’s going to find out how and why [Mueller’s investigation] was started in the first place.”

Sen. Tom Cotton said on Wednesday that President Trump laid out two broad approaches to immigration reform in a meeting the previous day with 12 Republican senators.

The Arkansas Republican said on “Fox & Friends” that the president described a policy that focuses on modernizing border security and calls for a merit-based system.

“The first (approach) is immediate and urgent,” Cotton said, “it’s addressing the crisis at our southern border where we had over 100,000 illegal border crossing apprehensions last month. That’s going to be reforming our asylum laws to make sure that we don’t have people committing fraud, showing up, getting a piece of paper from some left-wing lawyer and saying some magic words that lets them into the country olly olly oxen free.”

TRUMP ORDERS ASYLUM OVERHAUL, INCLUDING NEW FEE FOR APPLICATIONS AND FASTER ADJUDICATIONS, AMID ‘SEVERE’ BORDER CRISIS

“We also had a big victory on that, by the way, yesterday in the court system,” Cotton added. “Secretary of State (Mike) Pompeo in a negotiated agreement with the Mexican government (said) that they would keep Central Americans in their countries while those asylum claims are processed. The courts finally just said that agreement can go forward, a very common sense victory. So that was the first part of the conversation.”

Cotton said shifting to a high skilled-merit-based immigration system was the second part of the conversation at Tuesday’s meeting, adding it’s something he has worked on “a lot over the last few years.”

“Today we have way too many people coming into the country who are unskilled workers or low-skilled workers and that’s driving down American wages,” Cotton said.

“What we need are more people who are doctors, or computer scientists, engineers. And that’s the direction the president wants to go as he said in the past, they laid out some broad principles yesterday. I think we had pretty widespread agreement on those principles.”

9TH CIRCUIT BREAKS WITH ANOTHER APPELLATE COURT, RULES ASYLUM APPLICANTS HAVE RIGHT TO GO BEFORE FEDERAL JUDGE

Cotton, known for his support for strict immigration measures, added that “more and more Democrats across the country are coming to recognize” that “there really is a crisis.”

“Triple the number of Democrats last month said that we have a crisis at our border as had said the previous month. Democrats in Congress may not have gotten that message yet but that kind of growing recognition among the American people that we face a crisis at the border ultimately cannot help but reach the Congress,” Cotton said.

“There are a lot of asylum laws that are well-intentioned but are being abused by people who simply want to come into the country for a chance to make more money and send that money back home. I understand the impulse, I just don’t think we as a country should indulge that.”

He then went on to say, “Our asylum laws are for people who are genuinely persecuted like Jews were in the Soviet Union or like Christians in the Middle East are today. They’re not for people who simply want to escape crime in dangerous countries.”

Cotton objected to 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden’s proposal on Tuesday to send more foreign aid to Central American countries to stop the flood of migrants into the United States.

“We’ve been giving them a lot of money for a long time, they continue to come here” Cotton said in response.

“What we need to do is protect our own sovereignty at our southern border and make sure that our laws are not being abused and that we don’t have a flood of migrants coming into our country.”

Grover Norquist: Repealing Trump’s tax cuts would ‘make us the least competitive nation in the world’

Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist said on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday that repealing Trump’s tax cuts would “make us the least competitive nation in the world.”

His comments came in response to several prominent 2020 Democrats’ strategy of running against President Trump and the Republican Party’s tax cut.

“To get rid of the Trump Republican tax cuts is to make us the least competitive nation in the world on tax policy on businesses. That is exactly where you don’t want to be,” Norquist said, while also explaining that repealing the tax cuts would impact businesses in the United States because the corporate tax rate would go back up to one of the highest in the world.

NEWT GINGRICH: LOW UNEMPLOYMENT, STRONG JOB CREATION CONFIRM STRENGTH OF TRUMP ECONOMY

“We were at 35 (percent), which was 10 points higher than communist China. And we were the highest of all the major economies in the world at 35, we took it down to 21 percent which makes us competitive, the president wanted 15 but 21 is good,” Norquist explained.

During a speech in Detroit on Monday, 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said, “On day one we’re going to repeal that tax bill that benefited the top one percent and the biggest corporations in our country.”

At the kickoff event for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, he insisted that the Trump tax cuts have had absolutely no impact on the middle class.

“There was a $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it?” Biden asked the crowd of Teamsters Union members. “Of course not!”

WHO’S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020? GROWING FIELD OF CANDIDATES JOIN RACE FOR DEMOCRATIC NOD

In South Carolina on Saturday, the 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner referenced Trump’s tax cuts again, saying, “People say ‘Well, Joe, how are you going to do all of this?’ Well, Guess what? First thing I do is going to repeal this Trump tax cut.”

When asked to respond to Harris’ claim that the tax cut benefits the top one percent and if that was accurate, Norquist answered, “That’s what the left was saying right when the bill passed. Do you remember when the tax cut was very unpopular in polling when it passed? As we got closer to April 15th of this year, and Americans actually saw the size of the tax cut they got, it became much more popular.”

“What Harris and Joe Biden are talking about taking away from people, family of four, $73,000, median income, that family would have $2,000 in higher taxes if you took away the Trump tax cuts. That’s how big the Trump tax cut was for a family of four that makes $73,000.”

Norquist then provided another example, saying, “Single parent earning $41,000. One child, single parent would cost that person $1,300 to lose the Trump tax cut. That’s how large the tax cut was. These are significant tax cuts.”

Lindsey Graham tells Hannity special counsel’s investigation must be looked at ‘like they looked at Trump’

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R., S.C., told Sean Hannity that Robert Mueller‘s investigation is a “case closed,” but the origins of his probe need to be scrutinized in the same way President Trump was.

The FISA warrant to wiretap former Trump campaign aide Carter Page was issued on the basis of the claims made in Christopher Steele’s dossier, Graham said, and would not have been granted otherwise. Since the dossier was first revealed in 2017 alleging Trump connections to Russia, ex-British spy Steele has admitted that some of the information contained within it was unverified.

“Somebody needs to look at this like they looked at Trump,” Graham said during an appearance on “Hannity” on Tuesday.

“We have got to get to the bottom of it and make sure it never happens again.”

Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the investigation’s conclusions found that the special counsel could not generate enough evidence to confirm that President Trump colluded with Russians, but did not exonerate the president on the issue of obstruction.

KELLYANNE CONWAY, AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE, SAYS PRESS APOLOGIES ARE IN ORDER

Both Hannity and Graham questioned why Mueller didn’t investigate further into the origins of the Steele dossier, and when exactly he became aware that there wasn’t evidence of collusion.

“What I want to know is: when did [Mueller] know there was no conspiracy with The Trump campaign and Russia as it relates to collusion of any kind?” Hannity asked. “Why was he not concerned about Hillary’s dirty Russian dossier when he had plenty of time to look into medallions and laws and taxes?

“I would think the Russian dossier would have been important to Robert Mueller,” Hannity continued.

Hannity’s questions join a chorus of other Republican commentators including former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy, who argued against Mueller’s collusion investigation last month.

“Clearly he didn’t have enough evidence on collusion and what I would say with respect to Mueller is if you have enough on obstruction, then charge him and let a jury of 12 decide whether or not your evidence carries the burden of persuasion,” Gowdy said last month.

Michael B. Mukasey, a former federal judge, and President George W. Bush’s attorney general, echoed similar sentiments.

“When did Bob Mueller know, or when did the people who worked with him know, that there was no coordination, which is what they were looking for?” the ex-AG told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer.

“When did they realize that and whenever they realized that shouldn’t they have told the rest of us?”
