U.S. Border Patrol agents were sent to Diablo Peak in California to rescue a stranded illegal immigrant from Mexico who was in need of help on the mountain.

The agency sent a helicopter to look for the man after learning around midnight Tuesday that the man needed help. The name of the injured man hasn’t been disclosed.

The man, who appeared to be in the U.S. illegally, reportedly called 911 to report that he got injured and was “unable to walk further,” officials told Tucson, Ariz.’s KVOA television.

It took nearly five hours for the agents to find the man stranded on the mountain, which peaks at 3,848 feet high and takes nearly seven hours to climb.

According to Arizona newspaper the Sahuarita Sun, after locating the man, the agents determined that he had to be airlifted because of his injuries.

A couple of hours later, the man was in a hospital and was to be processed through the U.S. immigration system, officials said.

‘Queer feminist mermaid’ Dem aims for Senate seat of Maine’s Susan Collins

Westlake Legal Group queer-feminist-mermaid-dem-aims-for-senate-seat-of-maines-susan-collins 'Queer feminist mermaid' Dem aims for Senate seat of Maine's Susan Collins Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/maine fox-news/politics/2020-senate-races fox news fnc/politics fnc d3ef3174-a25f-5b48-8b31-33988d44caab article

A self-described “queer feminist mermaid” is running to unseat U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, prompted by Collins’ vote last year that helped to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Bre Kidman, 31, is the first person to throw her name into the 2020 race for Collins’ Senate seat as Democrats, who initially warned of recruiting a strong candidate to run against the incumbent, so far haven’t found a credible challenger.

SEN. SUSAN COLLINS ALREADY FACING POST-KAVANAUGH WAVE OF POTENTIAL DEM CHALLENGERS

Collins took a political hit at home for voting to confirm Kavanaugh, seeing her approval rating decline temporarily after the vote. But she has since rebounded and her latest approval rating indicates that more than half of Maine residents support her, according to the Morning Consult.

Yet Kidman, a lawyer who was born female but doesn’t use feminine pronouns and instead prefers “they or their,” claims the senator can be defeated.

“Like all other politicians, whether or not they want to admit it, I’m a human being who has grown and changed over the years,” Kidman told the Sun Journal of Lewiston. “I am funny. I’m weird. I’m serious. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m a lot of different things.”

“Like all other politicians, whether or not they want to admit it, I’m a human being who has grown and changed over the years. I am funny. I’m weird. I’m serious. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m a lot of different things.”

— Bre Kidman, U.S. Senate candidate in Maine

“And I want to be in a culture where it’s OK to be a lot of different things and also take part in building what we as a country are.”

But Kidman’s social media posts are likely to be a hindrance for the campaign rather than an advantage. “Criminal defense attorney by day & radical fat queer/performance artist/model/musician/activist most other times,” the candidate’s Facebook reads.

On the website for the Maine Educationalists on Sexual Harmony (MESH), Kidman is labeled as a “queer feminist lawyer, mermaid, writer, activist, and artist,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

“I’m not hiding them for a reason,” Kidman added. “All the work I’ve done has been in the interest of helping people make their life work better, and I don’t think that’s in contrast with a run for office.”

Kidman is currently working to raise funds for her campaign, hoping to collect at least a third of $500,000, the sum required to be competitive during the June 2020 Democratic primary. A meeting with the Democratic Party of Maine is also on the books regarding the candidacy.

During the Kavanaugh saga in the Senate, a liberal group started a fundraiser to bankroll Collins’ future opponent. The campaign so far raised nearly $3.8 million and will be awarded to the winner of the Democratic primary.

“I do think I can be competitive in the primary and the general, and party support would make it easier, which is why I decided to join the party system,” Kidman told the Free Beacon. “Maine is in a unique situation because a lot of people donated to a crowd-fund that will go to the Democratic nominee.”

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who assailed her opponent Joe Biden for holding a “swanky private fundraiser” after announcing his candidacy, took money from the same donors during her 2018 Senate election, a lawyer who co-hosted the Biden event says.

Warren shared a scathing message in the wake Biden’s entry into the 2020 race last month, informing her supporters that the Philadelphia fundraiser he attended featured Comcast executive David Cohen and health insurance executive Daniel Hilferty.

“In the first 24 hours of his presidential campaign (welcome to the race!), Joe Biden raised $6.3 million,” Warren’s email read wrote. “How did Joe Biden raise so much money in one day? Well, it helps that he hosted a swanky private fundraiser for wealthy donors at the home of the guy who runs Comcast’s lobbying shop.”

But Warren’s attacks appear to be awkward as she apparently accepted campaign contributions from the many of the same donors during her 2018 Senate race.

“I was pleased to support Senator Warren, I think she’s a terrific senator, but I think it makes no sense for her to criticize Biden for taking checks at the maximum allowed,” Kenneth Jarin, a lawyer who was a host for Biden’s fundraiser, told the Philadelphia Inquirer, adding that her attacks were “preposterous.”

“I know that she took lots and lots of $2,700 checks raising money for her Senate campaigns,” he added.

“I know that she took lots and lots of $2,700 checks raising money for her Senate campaigns.”

— Kenneth Jarin, co-host of Biden fundraiser

According to the newspaper, the same donors who appeared at Biden’s fundraiser also attended Warren’s fundraisers at a Center City Philadelphia law firm last year and at the city’s Rittenhouse Hotel in 2017, donating thousands of dollars to her campaign.

ELIZABETH WARREN CALLS FOR TRUMP IMPEACHMENT, DISMISSES MCCONNELL’S ‘CASE CLOSED’

Former Gov. Ed Rendell and Stephen Cozen, a Center City law partner, both organized the recent fundraiser for Biden in Philadelphia and a 2018 fundraiser for Warren, who was seeking donations up to $5,400.

Rendell and Cozen reportedly gave Warren $4,500 and $2,500, respectively, for her Senate campaign. Daniel Berger, a managing shareholder of the firm, gave the maximum allowed, $5,400. He recently donated to Biden’s campaign $2,800.

But Berger somewhat defended Warren’s attacks, saying that the wealthy who donated to her in 2018 were driven by a pure belief in her rather than because of some ulterior motives.

“At the Biden event, there were people who genuinely support Joe, like I do for idealistic reasons, and then there were corporate people who were giving money because they have an interest,” Berger told the outlet.

“There were no such people at the event that I hosted for Warren. These were people who genuinely agree with her on her positions and policy issues.”

Warren’s attacks against Biden’s fundraising came amid reports that Biden’s campaign raised a massive $6.3 million in the first 24 hours, beating his opponents’ first-day fundraising efforts.

The latest polls indicate that Biden is the leading 2020 Democrat favored to win the party’s nomination. Warren, meanwhile, is often around fourth place, behind Sen. Bernie Sanders and insurgent Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Judge Napolitano: Dem threats of jailing Barr are ‘absurd’, contempt warning used as ‘political weapon’

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said Democrats’ threats of putting Attorney General Bill Barr behind bars for not complying with their subpoenas are “absurd.”

Napolitano told “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning that the threats aren’t serious as it will be up to the courts to decide whether Democrats have legal standing to pursue such course of action that hasn’t been used since the 1930s.

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

“When two branches of government disagree who resolves it? The other branch. There is a very easy way out of this,” he said.

“The House Judiciary committee serves a subpoena on the attorney general. He believes the laws which he has sworn to uphold prevent him from complying with it completely as they want him. You take this subpoena, you make a motion to quash it – that is to suppress it – and a judge calls it and then you follow what the judge’s ruling is.”

“If you don’t like the judge’s ruling. You appeal it. Will this make its way to the Supreme Court? I doubt it, but it could. The judiciary is the branch that decides what the law means, what the constitution means and how it should be interpreted rather than these threats about locking up the attorney general, that’s absurd.”

The judiciary is the branch that decides what the law means, what the constitution means and how it should be interpreted rather than these threats about locking up the attorney general, that’s absurd.”

— Andrew Napolitano

Napolitano’s comments come amid the left’s new rallying cry after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files – a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.

MEDIA TRIES TO TURN UP HEAT ON BARR, WITH CNN’S BLITZER ASKING IF DEMS WOULD PUT AG BEHIND BARS

Committee member Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., over the weekend urged the panel to specifically pursue “inherent contempt,” calling for Barr to be arrested by the Sergeant at Arms and be physically brought before the committee to testify.

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, meanwhile, said last week that the House can use various measures, including arrests or even jail time, to force Barr to comply with their requests.

But Napolitano said that Democrats’ warnings of holding Barr in contempt are a largely symbolic move that is being used a “political weapon.”

“Holding someone in contempt is a footnote in history,” he said. “In some states, it could impair your ability to practice law. I doubt that [Barr] is worried about that.”

“But they shouldn’t use contempt as a political weapon. They should only use it when someone is truly defying them. So, when the law says do this and the subpoena says do that and this and that are the opposite. You present it to a judge” he added.

Fox News’ Brooke Singman contributed to this report.

NBC reporter scolded on air after comparing UN climate change report to alien invasion

An NBC News reporter raised eyebrows and prompted pushback from an MSNBC host after suggesting that climate change is like an alien invasion that is visible to everyone.

The reporter, Jacob Ward, made the odd comparison following the release of the United Nations climate change report that claims a number of “transformative changes” will be needed to save nature and humanity from climate change and other threats.

‘TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGES’ ARE NEEDED TO SAVE NATURE AND OURSELVES, MAJOR CLIMATE REPORT CLAIMS

“Yeah, you know, it really is devastating, Stephanie. I mean, this is how dark the times are in the view of researchers… people are sort of getting ready for the horrors that this report is talking about. So it is dark times, I gotta say,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle during a Monday show.

Ruhle then lamented that “there’s not even a consensus around climate change,” prompting Ward to make the comparison.

“I know, I know. I mean, that’s the thing, right? You look at it and you think this should be our great unifying moment, right?” he asked. “This is the moment when space aliens land with ray guns and are threatening all of us and we all band together like you see in the movies. This is it. And yet, that’s not somehow happening.”

“This is the moment when space aliens land with ray guns and are threatening all of us and we all band together like you see in the movies. This is it. And yet, that’s not somehow happening.”

— Jacob Ward

The over-the-top analogy was even too much to handle for Ruhle, who quickly pushed back against the reporter’s characterization, saying it’s “not fair.”

MELTING PERMAFROST IN ARCTIC WILL HAVE $70 TRILLION IMPACT, NEW STUDY SAYS

“But it’s not,” she interjected. “For your average American at home, there are not space aliens coming out and saying, ‘We’re going to take you over.’”

She added: “This is an intangible. So how do we help them understand? Because it’s not fair to put it that way.”

“For your average American at home, there are not space aliens coming out and saying, ‘We’re going to take you over.’”

The reporter was receptive to the criticism and immediately admitted that his rhetoric was not grounded in reality, though doubled-down on the need to be alarmist.

“I feel that it’s the kind of thing where we should be able to band together, we should be able to access something really basic in our programming that just says, ‘Existential threat, humanity, band together,’ and we’re not doing that for some reason.”

Joe Biden may be leading in 2020 Democratic primary polls, but he’s struggling to get a footing in the digital space, with a parody anti-Biden website featuring him touching women and girls being the top search result on Google.

Many social media users pointed out in recent days that Biden’s official 2020 campaign website is hard to find in a Google search – instead parody website JoeBiden.info is topping the results, giving an impression that it’s the main site.

BIDEN MISTAKENLY CLAIMS MARGARET THATCHER, WHO DIED IN 2013, IS WORRIED ABOUT TRUMP

The website, which looks like a campaign site, features images and GIFs of Biden touching women and girls, a behavior for which he recently apologized after multiple women came forward detailing the uncomfortable encounters with him.

“Uncle Joe is back and ready to take a hands-on approach to America’s problems!” the site reads. “Joe Biden has a good feel for the American people and knows exactly what they really want deep down. He’s happy to open up and reveal himself to voters and will give a pounding to anybody who gets in his way!”

The website goes on to detail common criticisms of Biden’s track record as a U.S. senator, including his support for the 1994 crime bill that paved way to mass incarceration or his vote to support the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

It also features more recent controversies, including the alleged shady dealings in Ukraine, where Hunter Biden, his son, was employed at a Ukrainian energy company as a board member while the Obama administration was mulling a course of action amid Russia’s invasion in Eastern Ukraine.

Biden also publicly admitted that he threatened the Ukrainian president to fire a top prosecutor, who happened at the time to have been investigating corruption of the company his son was a board member.

The prosecutor, who was fired after the threat, was reportedly facing criticisms back then by both Ukrainians and international officials for not bringing enough corruption prosecutions. Biden’s push to oust the prosecutor may have not been influenced by the probe of the company his son was involved in.

BIDEN FACES SCRUTINY FOR DEMANDING OUSTER OF UKRAINE OFFICIAL PROBING FIRM THAT EMPLOYED HIS SON

It remains unclear who created the JoeBiden.info website. Fox News’ review of registry history shows that the website has been frequently changing hands and up until 2013 it looked like a legitimate website for Biden.

Since at least 2015, however, the website turned into a parody site, supposedly detailing the gaffes of Biden. Fox News’ contacted the individual who appears to have transformed the address into a mock site.

The person did tell CNBC that he’s a “closet libertarian” and that the website has tricked multiple people into thinking that it was a legitimate Biden’s 2020 campaign page.

“I would assume Biden’s campaign knows about it though by now,” the person wrote. “I get thousands of Biden supporters coming to the site every day who fail to realize that it is a parody — asking for volunteer information, donation information, suggestions on how to handle the [Anita Hill] situation, or criticizing his use of ‘All men are created equal’ — no joke. ”

The site has a disclaimer noting that it’s not funded “by any candidate, committee, organization, or PAC.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar branded herself as President Trump’s “biggest nemesis” because she’s a “nightmare” for the White House that wants to use her “identity to marginalize our communities.”

The Minnesota Democrat, who was elected to Congress just five months ago and has been facing persistent controversy, made the remarks during an interview amid her sparring with the Trump administration.

“This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country. It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me,” Omar wrote in a tweet on Monday.

In the interview with HuffPost, she doubled-down on calling herself Trump’s biggest nemesis.

“He clearly has a disdain for black women who see themselves as equal to him. And so, for many people, it’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me,” Omar said.

“Clearly, I am a nightmare ― because he can’t stop really thinking about ways that he can continue to use my identity to marginalize our communities.”

“Clearly, I am a nightmare ― because he can’t stop really thinking about ways that he can continue to use my identity to marginalize our communities.”

Omar’s remarks follow Trump public condemnation of her after revelation that she flippantly described the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks as “some people did something” during a fundraiser for a Muslim group back in March.

Trump caught some flak after he tweeted a video of those comments by her edited together with the images of the twin towers burning down during the attacks. “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” he wrote in the tweet.

More recently, both Vice President Mike Pence and State Secretary Mike Pompeo called out the Democrat after she defended socialist dictator Nicholas Maduro in Venezuela and said that the U.S. actions are responsible for the misery in the country.

“A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today,” she told progressive “Democracy Now!” program last week.

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States,” she added.

Pence said “The congresswoman doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” while Pompeo called Omar’s comments “ignorant” and “disgusting.”

A 1987 clip of Joe Biden has resurfaced, showing him exaggerating his academic record, boasting that he graduated “in the top half of my class” – before he later admitted that he graduated 76th in a class of 85.

The former vice president, who’s currently the leading 2020 presidential candidate, was running back then for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president when he got combative and made the blunder amid questioning by a reporter about his academic credentials.

“I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship,” he told the reporter during a campaign stop in Claremont, New Hampshire.

“In the first year of the law school, I decided I didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class,” he continued. “And then I decided to stay, went back to law school, and in fact ended up in the top half of my class.”

“And then I decided to stay, went back to law school, and in fact ended up in the top half of my class.”

He added that he was an “outstanding student in the political science department” and “graduated with three degrees from college.”

Shortly after making the claims, Biden had to come out with a confession that he lied about his academic record and actually graduated 76th in a class of 85.

“I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was inaccurate,” he told the New York Times in a statement.

“I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was inaccurate.”

“I graduated from the University of Delaware with a double major in history and political science. My reference to degrees at the Claremont event was intended to refer to these majors – I said ‘three’ and should have said ‘two,’” he added, though the newspaper points out that Biden actually received a single B.A. degree in history and political science.

During an interview with the Times, he also didn’t dispute the reports that he actually went on the law school “on half scholarship based on financial need” rather than full scholarship as he claimed.

“My recollection is – and I’d have to confirm this – but I don’t recall paying any money to go to law school,” he said.

Biden’s 1988 run for Democratic nomination for president ended shortly after the controversy, which also included accusations of plagiarism in his academic work and campaign speeches.

The video resurfaced amid mounting criticism against Biden and his decades-long career in politics that include his support for tough-on-crime bill in the 1990s and his treatment of Anita Hill. Supporters of more progressive candidates such as Sen. Bernie Sanders say Biden’s candidacy is a step backward for the party.

Thai king officially crowned, kick-starting three-day long coronation ceremony

Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has officially assumed the title at the start of a three-day-long, centuries-old coronation ceremony.

The coronation on Saturday comes after the previous king, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, died back in October 2016 at the age of 88.

After completing the rites on the first day, Vajiralongkorn issued a royal command that is supposed to represent the tone of his upcoming reign of the country that is still reckoning with a 2014 military coup and a contentious election less than two months ago.

THAILAND’S KING APPOINTS HIS CONSORT AS QUEEN DAYS BEFORE HIS FORMAL CORONATION

“I shall continue, preserve, and build upon the royal legacy and shall reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the people forever,” the king said, according to the Associated Press’ translation.

The newly-minted 66-year-old king has already been acting as a king after his father’s death. He officially received his crown from the chief Brahmin, a Hindu priest who played a guiding in the mixed Buddhist-Hindu ceremony.

Vajiralongkorn then placed the crown atop his head. The crown, called the “Great Crown of Victory,” is believed to date back to 1782 and is about 26 inches wide and weighs 16 pounds.

NEW THAI GOVERNMENT MAY BE UNSTABLE, SHORT-LIVED

Thailand ended the absolute rule of monarchs during a 1932 revolution, instituting a constitutional monarchy. Yet while the king’s power has been diminished, they are held by the public in high esteem and thought as almost divine.

The king also plays a unifying role in a country that is often in political turmoil due to partisanship and the influence of the military.

But Vajiralongkorn has already made some changes in the power of the crown, including centralizing royal authority in his hand and allowing himself to intervene in government affairs.

His moves weren’t met with criticism as he’s protected by the world’s strictest lese majeste laws that makes any criticism of him or other top royals an offense punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Maduro’s top confidant tried to sneak Hezbollah into Venezuela, made deals with drug lords, became rich as nation struggled

Venezuela’s ex-vice president and now the top confidant of Nicolas Maduro is said to have tried sneaking in Hezbollah militants into his country, made a business deal with a drug lord and became extremely wealthy as the once-rich country turned into an economic basket case.

Tareck El Aissami has emerged as a hardliner of Maduro’s socialist regime as the country remains on the brink of an all-out civil war due to economic misery.

Protesters and military forces clashed this week after opposition leader Juan Guaido openly called for a military uprising, saying the “the moment is now.”

“The armed forces have taken the right decision,” Guaido said. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution, they are on the right side of history.”

VENEZUELA SEES SECOND DAY OF UNREST AS GUAIDÓ SEEKS POWER

But El Aissami, while not having the same scrutiny as Maduro, has long been the subject of various investigations both at home and in the U.S. over the way he wielded his political power to get wealthy and support terror groups.

According to a dossier compiled by Venezuelan agents and obtained by the New York Times, El Aissami and his father, Carlos Zaidan El Aissami, allegedly recruited members of the Hezbollah terror group to help with spying and drug trafficking operations in the region.

Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based group, designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, which has since expanded its operations across the world and has been involved in drug trafficking in Latin America.

The dossier claims that El Aissami and his father tried to bring the Hezbollah members into Venezuela “with the aim of expanding intelligence networks throughout Latin America and at the same time working in drug trafficking.”

El Aissami, in particular, tried to use his political power to sort out their documentation and allow them to reside in the country. The dossier didn’t acknowledge whether the plans succeeded, the Times reported.

The former vice president, currently serving as Maduro’s industry minister, also reportedly got involved with the organized crime groups.

The intelligence report stays that El Aissami’s brother made a deal with Walid Makled, Venezuela’s most infamous drug lord, and held about $45 million in Swiss banks accounts, according to the Times.

American prosecutors argue that El Aissami played a role in the drug trafficking, accusing him of using his office to aid international drug traffickers, according to charges unsealed in March.

He was charged with violating the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act and U.S. Treasury Department sanctions. Authorities say he also supervised or partly owned narcotics shipments that weighted over a ton, and even managed the global network of companies in a bid to launder money.

All such dealings made El Aissami a particularly wealthy individual in Venezuela, even as the country was struggling economically, with NGOs working to provide humanitarian aid to the starving population.

The report says El Aissami used a frontman to avoid U.S. sanctions and bought an American bank, parts of a construction company, a stake in a mall in Panama, and multiple Venezuelan real estate projects.

The situation in Venezuelan remains fragile as Guaido remains a recognized leader of the country despite Maduro clinging to power through repression.

The socialist authoritarian recently said that the rebellion was crushed, a claim Guaido says is far from the truth.

“If the regime thought we had reached maximum pressure, they cannot even imagine,” Guaidó told supporters on Wednesday, according to Reuters. “We have to remain in the streets.”
