DC fire recruits under investigation for flashing ‘OK’ sign in photo, ‘white power’ symbol or ‘circle game’?

The fire department in Washington, D.C., launched an internal investigation Wednesday into a photo taken last year of a group of recruits flashing what some say may have been a “white power” hand gesture, which resembles the “OK” hand sign.

But the recruits might have been playing the so-called “circle game,” in which someone flashes an upside-down OK sign below the waist and punches anyone who looks at it, District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services officials said, according to Washington’s WRC-TV.

ARMY, NAVY INVESTIGATORS FIND HAND GESTURES MADE DURING FOOTBALL BROADCAST WEREN’T RACIST

The department said it was first made aware of the photo Wednesday after it surfaced on Facebook. The photo shows several members of Recruit Class 387 and their instructors. The class graduated in April 2019. The photo is believed to have been taken in March 2019, the statement added.

“The department has immediately initiated an interview review of the photograph, which may include interviews with everyone pictured in the photograph,” D.C. Fire and EMS chief communications officer Doug Buchanan said, according to Washington’s WUSA-TV.

In certain contexts, three fingers extended is meant to form a “W,” and the thumb and index finger connecting is meant to form a “P,” which together stand for “white power.”

The OK symbol has had different meanings for centuries. It began to surface online in 2017 as part of a hoax on the online message board 4chan meant to make liberals and the media “overreact by condemning a common image as white supremacist,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.

The D.C. probe comes about a month after investigations by the Army and Navy ruled that U.S. Military Academy cadets and U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen were participating in the circle game during a televised football game and were not communicating racist messages as some had claimed.

Clips of the hand gestures by the students went viral on social media.

The Navy said reviews of the footage, more than two dozen interviews and background checks by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the FBI determined that the two freshmen midshipmen were participating in the “sophomoric game” with West Point cadets. The Army added that the hand gestures were “not associated with ideologies or movements that are contrary to the Army values.”

Devin Nunes: FISA court’s behavior ‘totally inappropriate,’ Congress must fix it

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132211014652480000-2 Devin Nunes: FISA court's behavior 'totally inappropriate,' Congress must fix it fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/washington-dc fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/devin-nunes fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8d642cc8-3a24-5c98-a72f-a765a2083335

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) court acted inappropriately in the Russia investigation.

Nunes made the comments on Tuesday on “The Story,” shortly after FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer issued a rare rebuke of the FBI over its surveillance-application process.

Host Martha MacCallum asked Nunes if he agreed with Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano — who said the FISA court should be eliminated.

“We need a process,” Nunes said. “So I’m not going to speak in absolutes. But I will say that the way the courts conducted themselves is totally inappropriate. They ignored clear evidence that we presented to them that — remember, they had this, the American people didn’t have it — we had seen, they had it, they did absolutely nothing about it.”

FISA COURT SLAMS FBI OVER SURVEILLANCE APPLICATIONS, IN RARE PUBLIC ORDER

“They have left really Congress no choice but to have to step in and fix this process,” he added.

The court is comprised of 11 member judges who are simultaneously active federal judges in various districts throughout the country, including the District of Columbia, Mississippi, Oregon, New Jersey and Maine. Collyer is a George W. Bush-nominated federal judge in Washington D.C., whom Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts appointed to the FISA court.

MacCallum asked Nunes whether any particular judges on the court warrant further scrutiny in that regard.

The lawmaker did not name any judges specifically but told the host the panel may not be being completely forthright about what transpired over the course of the multiple approvals to surveil former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

“When you have the evidence that we present to them and they do nothing about it, and now they come out — and I have to look closely at the letter that they sent out today, the statement that they sent out, because I’m not so sure that they are being entirely truthful.”

In her statement, Collyer gave the FBI until Jan. 10 to come up with solutions, in the wake of findings from Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote in her four-page order. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”

Officials still puzzled about ‘hovering’ object that prompted lockdown in DC

Security officials on Capitol Hill are still puzzled by what sparked the security threat to be issued Tuesday morning that put both the White House and the Capitol on lockdown.

The incident caused an abrupt security situation, with jets being scrambled and officers warning people outside Capitol facilities to stay far away. The U.S. Secret Service said personnel at the White House were told to remain in place.

“We don’t know what the hell it was,” one security source told Fox News. Officials said the alert could have been sparked by birds, a drone, or possibly a “weather anomaly.”

Security officials received different information regarding the location and speed of the object in question. Officials heard it was “hovering” and were even given “knots” measuring its speed, sources said.

Fox News is told by security officials that the situation went to “Air Con Orange,” which means a suspicious aircraft piercing the Washington security bubble. But security personnel are only supposed to stay at Air Con Orange for a few minutes, before either upgrading the alert or downgrading the problem.

Neither occurred with Tuesday morning’s alert, but Capitol Police sent a notification of a potential threat shortly after 8:30 a.m. People were allowed back in after about 30 minutes.

Law enforcement sources initially told Fox News the lockdown was triggered after an aircraft moving east violated restricted airspace. But Fox News is now told officials may have to go back and review the radar to determine what exactly prompted the scare, with sources saying they got “mixed signals at best” as to what the potential aircraft could have been.

Fox News’ Brooke Singman and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

‘Potomac River Rapist’ suspect caught in South Carolina decades after DC-area attacks

The FBI and Washington, D.C. police have arrested a suspect known as the “Potomac River Rapist” whom they had been searching for since the 1990s.

Giles Daniel Warrick, 60, is accused of murdering one woman and sexually assaulting eight others in the Washington, D.C., and Montgomery County, Md., areas between 1991 and 1998.

Giles Daniel Warrick

Warrick was connected to the crimes via forensic evidence, officials announced Thursday.

Warrick is suspected of killing 29-year-old Christine Mirzayan in the summer of 1998 as she walked home from a cookout in Georgetown, D.C. He’s also accused of sexually assaulting eight other women, including an18-year-old babysitter and two women whose children were in the home at the time of the attack. His victims ranged in age from 18 to 58, officials said.

At the time of the attacks, Warrick worked in landscaping and as a contractor in the D.C. area. He had recently moved to South Carolina, where he was arrested, Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones said, according to NBC 4 Washington.

The FBI said seven of the nine attacks were linked back to Warrick by DNA. All of the attacks were linked to his violent methods, they said.

A DNA test taken by a family member of Warrick led investigators to him. Officials compared DNA collected from the crime scenes to DNA publicly available in databases, Jones said.

DC police had offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to Warrick’s arrest and conviction.

Piers Morgan blasts Trump critics after al-Baghdadi raid: They ‘shamed themselves and shamed their country’

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Morgan Piers Morgan blasts Trump critics after al-Baghdadi raid: They 'shamed themselves and shamed their country' fox-news/world/terrorism/isis fox-news/world/terrorism/al-qaeda fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/us/terror/al-qaeda fox-news/us/terror fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/washington-dc fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article a3f405c5-5caf-5bc4-8816-1a329754995e

Many of President Trump’s critics shamed both themselves and the United States when they refused to acknowledge a White House victory after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi died in a U.S. military raid, according to Piers Morgan.

There was a nationwide celebration when Usama bin Laden was killed under then-President Barack Obama’s watch, but not so over the weekend after the ISIS leader died, Morgan told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“My mind went back to when Usama bin Laden was killed,” he said.

“I was in New York City that night. There was widespread jubilation throughout New York, throughout Washington, throughout America. This was a unified response from a country jubilant at seeing the end of the grisly demise of the leader of Al Qaeda. Compare and contrast the reaction yesterday — to the demise of Baghdadi.”

AL-BAGHDADI KILL: HOW THE DARING MILITARY OPERATION WENT DOWN

Morgan blasted baseball fans at Nationals Park in Washington who booed Trump during his appearance there, saying people should respect the office even if they didn’t like the president.

“The office of the presidency deserves more respect than I saw last night, particularly in light of what had happened a few hours earlier,” he said.

“I thought the thousands of Americans who thought that was the right way to respond shamed themselves and they shamed their country,” he said, adding he also read many similar responses on Twitter.

Prior to Morgan’s interview, host Tucker Carlson played clips of several media personalities largely refusing to compliment Trump after the raid, including former CIA analyst Philip Mudd, who said on CNN it was wrong for the president to celebrate a death, no matter the individual.

“You do not celebrate death — I don’t care if it’s a terrorist, I don’t care if it’s someone you hate — a human being has died, we do not celebrate that,” Mudd said.

During his interview, Morgan said he instead appreciated Trump’s detailed account of al-Baghdadi’s demise.

“I quite enjoyed the gory details the president gave us about that sniveling coward’s last few seconds on this Earth,” he remarked.

“Yesterday should’ve been a great day for America, a great day for the world.

“Instead, the narrative is, ‘let’s try to find where Trump went wrong in the way he spoke about it.'”

Morgan said many people appeared furious that Trump “may have done something right” and that they “just believe in screaming at anyone who doesn’t fit their narrow worldview.”

Daniel Krauthammer talks about how his late father would view politics today

Daniel Krauthammer, son of the a longtime Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer, spoke to Bret Baier about the paperback release of his father’s book and the state of American politics.

Krauthammer said Monday on “Special Report” hundreds of people have spoken to him as he traveled from city to city to promote “The Point of It All: A Lifetime of Great Loves and Endeavors,” and have asked him what his father would think of the current political environment.

“After the hardcover edition came out last winter, I traveled around the country… to promote it and talk to admires of my father, people who read him and watched him on TV,” he said.

“It was really moving and touching for me to realize how much of an impact he had on so many people.”

DANIEL KRAUTHAMMER: IN SEARCH OF CIVILITY — IN OUR POLITICS NOW, WE ARE INCREASINGLY TALKING PAST EACH OTHER

Krauthammer said people have told him they feel “lost” without his father, who died in 2018 at the age of 68 after a battle with cancer.

He said his father would always go to the core of a political issue and opine without regard to a particular party or ideology, but through a few basic principles.

His father, he said, strived to be truthful, without “pulling punches,” or “shaping his opinions just to please someone or please public opinion.”

To that extent, Baier noted then-candidate Donald Trump had an up-and-down relationship with the elder Krauthammer.

In June 2017, Trump called the late columnist “highly overrated pundit.”

TRUMP SAYS PELOSI SHOULD INVESTIGATE OBAMA’S SYRIA RED LINE

“As far as Charles Krauthammer, I’m not a fan of his,” Trump told Fox & Friends at the time.

However, in another interview with Baier, he thanked Krauthammer for putting ‘money’ on him during “Special Report’s” Candidate Casino.

“I saw that — I couldn’t believe it. Thank you Charles, I’m going to make you look good, Charles,” Trump said.

More from Media

In response, Daniel Krauthammer told Baier those two exchanges validated the way his father viewed politics and politicians.

“My father really — as he said many times — his job was to call a folly a folly, and it didn’t matter which side that was on,” he said.

AOC ENDORSING BERNIE SANDERS IS ‘NOT A GAME CHANGER,’ JUAN WILLIAMS SAYS

“And he certainly called out President Trump many times for those follies… but he also saw overreactions on the other side.

“He separated out what was real policy difference that’s valid and should be met that way, and things that really were beyond the pale and really should be criticized.”

Krauthammer remarked Trump’s responses in those interviews also showed people, “never knew where my dad was going to land on a certain issue.”

He added his father would likely continue that practice in the present, shying away from attacking politicians’ character and instead trying to have a debate on the issues.

“Trying to persuade, not to overpower — to meet people where they began with their assumptions,” he said.

In addition, one final thing his father would most definitely have a word on, his son said, was another recent development in Washington.

Last week, Charles Krauthammer’s beloved Nationals baseball team completed a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals — advancing to the World Series.

“I know he would be happy as a ten-year-old boy,” Daniel Krauthammer remarked.

Why Pastor Joseph Prince takes communion daily — and his ‘simple’ message for America

Joseph Prince, a Singapore-based megachurch pastor who has been called a missionary to America and is credited with starting a “Gospel of Grace Revolution,” is touring the United States with a “simple” message for the nation. He’s sharing about the power of the Holy Communion, something he talks about in his latest book.

The senior pastor of New Creation Church talked to Fox News after the first stop on his U.S. tour of worship nights in New York City before his event in Washington, D.C., where he was invited to the White House to meet with Vice President Mike Pence and pray over him.

PAULA WHITE ON HOW SHE BECAME TRUMP’S SPIRITUAL ADVISER AND WHY HE’LL CARRY EVANGELICAL VOTE IN 2020

“I feel what America needs is to return back to the gospel of grace,” Prince said after his sold-out event at Madison Square Garden. “I hear a lot of preaching…that emphasizes you, not what God has done,” which he calls “the biggest heresy” today.

“The gospel is all about grace. Grace is not a teaching, it is a person of Jesus,” Prince added. “It’s actually the gospel.”

He says a lot of pastors and teachers today point their fingers at what they’re against, robbing believers of the good news. And for the New York Times best-selling author, whose new book is called “Eat Your Way to Life and Health: Unlock the power of the Holy Communion,” it’s something he learned himself, which he calls a “neglected but very powerful truth.”

WHO IS KANYE WEST’S CALIFORNIA PASTOR PREACHING AT SUNDAY SERVICE?

Before he became a megapastor who grew his church to more than 33,000 attendees, Prince was a young believer who didn’t dare take communion because he was afraid he was unworthy. But now it’s something he says he does daily after “the Lord opened my eyes to how he has made it so easy for any of us to receive the divine health that our Lord Jesus paid for us to enjoy.”

New York Times best-selling author, Joseph Prince, wrote a book about communion called, “Eat Your Way to Life and Health: Unlock the Power of the Holy Communion.” (New Creation Church)

“I believe that the Lord gave me a mission to teach on the health-giving, life-imparting, healing power of the Communion,” Prince said, explaining on why he wrote the book about a sacrament that some believers only partake of once a week or once a month, if at all. “I want them to know beyond a shadow of any doubt that God wants them healed, whole and well.”

Prince calls Communion the “proverbial ‘fountain of youth’ mankind has been in search of for generations” and “is more powerful than any medicine, antibiotic, or medical procedure.” He believes it can be the difference between life and death. He shares testimonies of people throughout the book who have been healed by the power of Holy Communion.

And Prince says he witnessed the power of Communion while writing his book. His six-year-old son, Justin, had two skull fractures and was bleeding and throwing up after he fell from a high place on the playground during recess. When the doctors said all they could give him was painkillers, Prince and his wife, Wendy, partook communion with their second-grader at the hospital.

“The amazing this was, we could literally see him getting better and better each time we partook,” Prince said. “Every time we had Communion with Justin, his headaches got less painful, to the point when he told us he would rather just partake of the Communion that to take the painkillers that the doctors had given him!”

No matter how dire your medical report might be, God can still turn your situation around!

— Joseph Prince

Instead of taking six weeks to recover, as the doctors predicted, Justin was given the all-clear to return to school in just three weeks. “All glory to Jesus!” Prince said.

He encourages anyone who hasn’t been healed or seen any changes to keep going – and believing.

“Don’t give up. No matter what diagnosis you might have received from your doctor, keep filling your heart with scriptures,” Prince said. “Keep listening to messages about the Lord’s finished work and partaking of the Communion.”

Prince said his faith in Jesus means everything and it’s “not based on any legalistic human tradition but founded upon an intimate and meaningful relationship with my loving Savior.”

Man who had pro-Hong Kong sign confiscated at NBA game in Washington says league is ‘afraid’ of China

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Scheweppe Man who had pro-Hong Kong sign confiscated at NBA game in Washington says league is 'afraid' of China fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world/religion/islam fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/washington-dc fox-news/sports/nba/washington-wizards fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 9e8ed3c0-73dc-5c44-af76-e40e836a0382

A spectator at the Washington Wizards’ exhibition game versus the Guangzhou Long-Lions reacted to having security take away his pro-Hong Kong signage.

Jon Schweppe told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the NBA regularly allows its players to take politcal stances, but would not allow any free expression against the Chinese government in this particular case.

“I think it was done by someone up top,” he said of the decision to take the signs. “They don’t want to talk about it,” he said of Beijing’s alleged human rights abuses. “They’re afraid to upset their bottom line with China.”

During the interview, host Tucker Carlson wondered aloud how free expression could be restricted in Washington of all places.

“This is in the nation’s capital… and you can’t protest mainland China — in the capital of the United States,” Carlson said.

Schweppe agreed with the sentiment, pointing to the NBA previously pulling its All-Star Game out of North Carolina amid the battle over Raleigh’s transgender bathroom law.

He also recalled his interaction with security at the Capital One Arena in downtown Washington.

Schweppe claimed security guards were talking to each other when he and his friends unveiled their first banner, and then took action when a second sign was taken out.

During the interview, Carlson played video from Schweppe, which showed part of their interaction with security.

“What is the reasoning?” a man is heard asking when a security guard tells him he wants to take away the banner.

“It’s Capital One Arena, we understand — we respect your freedom of speech,” the guard said. “We are just personally not having — we don’t have any stance on it, so we’re just asking any signed related to that not be in here tonight.”

At the game, after the Chinese national anthem was played, one person shouted: “Freedom of expression! Freedom of speech! Free Hong Kong!” A second person also shouted for a free Hong Kong from the second level during the second quarter of the contest.

Security guards at the Capital One Arena then confronted a fan holding up a “Free Tibet” sign and another holding up the Tibet flag. Security tried to take the sign, but the fan resisted and they walked away from their seats and were followed by security.

Peter Schweizer: Donald Trump Jr. would be treated differently than Hunter Biden in Ukraine case

Westlake Legal Group Schweizer1 Peter Schweizer: Donald Trump Jr. would be treated differently than Hunter Biden in Ukraine case fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/washington-dc fox-news/shows/life-liberty-levin fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 9957ceb8-b49e-5230-979d-752e1ea45d6a

Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer has said he sees a double standard in how politicians like former Vice President Joe Biden appear to be “protected” in Washington.

Schweizer claimed in an interview airing Sunday on “Life, Liberty & Levin” that Donald Trump Jr. would be treated much differently if he was engaged in similar business activity to that of Hunter Biden — the former Delaware senator’s 49-year-old son — while his father held elected office.

Hunter Biden was paid $50,000 a month by Ukranian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings while it was under investigation for corruption. Media scrutiny of the connection intensified after President Trump was accused of committing an impeachable offense by asking Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden’s dealings.

On “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Schweizer said there would be outrage in Congress and the media — as well as from himself — if Trump Jr. were involved in a similar situation while his father was in the White House.

PETER SCHWEIZER: HUNTER BIDEN ‘WAS SELLING ACCESS’ TO OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, WAS INVOLVED WITH ‘CROOKED’ COMPANY

“Imagine if Don Junior flew over on Air Force One with his dad and inked a $1.5 billion deal, let’s say in an area he has no background in like telecommunications,” he said. “Washington would be going ballistic, I would be going ballistic and rightfully so.

“It’s a completely different circumstance in the way that response is — and that’s what I think so infuriates people. There are certain people that are supposed to be protected. Biden seems to be one of those.”

During the interview, host Mark Levin alluded to Schweizer’s 2018 book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” which chronicles his own investigation into the Bidens and other top Washington figures.

“And you write about Republicans in your book [too],” Levin said.

“Absolutely, they don’t want to hear any of it,” Schweizer said of the same figures in Washington who are outraged over the contents of President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schweizer added Trump appears to be held to a different standard because he is not beholden to what he called the District of Columbia’s standard “business model.”

“One of the reasons that there was so much animosity towards Trump… is he represents a massive disruption to the business model of Washington, D.C.,” he said, characterizing practices inside the Beltway as a cycle of enriching oneself and one’s friends while serving in office and “cash[ing] in even further” when they leave public service.

“If it’s not possible to investigate Joe Biden now, then it’s never possible to investigate him,” he told Levin. “His son flew with him on Air Force Two — he [the former vice president] was the point person on critically important national security issues with foreign governments.”

Schweizer also criticized the press for giving scant attention to Hunter Biden’s business overseas while his father was vice president.

“The media doesn’t seem to think this is a big deal,” he said.

Washington Monument elevator briefly breaks down after years of elevator renovations

Days after it reopened to the public, the elevator inside the Washington Monument temporarily broke down on Saturday, park officials said.

The monument — the tallest building in Washington, D.C. — opened on Thursday after a three-year renovation in which its elevator and security systems were upgraded.

WASHINGTON MONUMENT WILL REOPEN TO PUBLIC ON THURSDAY AFTER THREE YEARS OF RENOVATIONS

On Saturday, however, “The elevator was down for about an hour, but came back online,” the National Park Service (NPS) wrote on Twitter. “No evacuation via the stairs was necessary.”

“We apologize to our visitors who were inconvenienced. Normal operations have resumed and tours are running on schedule.”

Mike Litterst, a spokesperson for NPS, said staffers resolved the issue after about an hour and visitors who were at the top of the 555-foot monument were able to get back downstairs using the elevator.

Before it reopened this week, the Washington Monument had been closed for most of the past eight years. An August 2011 earthquake left cracks in the stones near the top of the obelisk. It reopened in 2014, but Park Service officials were forced to close it again two years later after a series of elevator malfunctions.

Construction on the monument began in 1848 and took nearly 40 years to complete. The private organization that was running the project ran out of funding and construction was halted in 1854 at around 150 feet; that delay was exacerbated by the Civil War.

Construction resumed in 1879, but builders were forced to use stone from a different quarry — giving the obelisk its distinctive two-tone color. At the time of its completion, it was the tallest building in the world, but was soon overtaken by the Eiffel Tower in 1889.
