Ted Cruz speaks out after Trump adds him to Supreme Court shortlist

LifeZette - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:41

Last week, President Donald Trump added Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to a shortlist of potential names that he would appoint to the Supreme Court. On Sunday, Cruz spoke out about this to politely say that he does not have any interest in being on the Supreme Court, as he has other political priorities he wants to accomplish in life.

When Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked Cruz if he would want the job, he replied, “You know, I don’t. It is deeply honoring, it’s humbling to be included in the list. I’m grateful that the president has that confidence in me. But it’s not the desire of my heart.”

Cruz has long been passionate about the Supreme Court, and he is even releasing a book about the highest court in the land before Election Day. Actually serving on the Supreme Court himself, however, is not something that interests Cruz. He explained to Bartiromo that he feels he can better serve the judiciary from the legislative branch, and he has been open about wanting to run for president again in 2024.

“I want to be in the political fight,” Cruz said. “I want to be fighting to nominate and confirm three, four, five principled, constitutionalist justices. But that’s not where I want to serve. I want to stay fighting right where I am in the US Senate.”

This comes after Cruz initially responded to being on Trump’s Supreme Court shortlist with a statement that was more vague.

“I am grateful for the president’s confidence in me and for his leadership in nominating principled constitutionalists to the federal bench over the last four years,” he said. “As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I’ve been proud to help confirm to the bench over 200 of President Trump’s judicial nominees, including two to the Supreme Court. It’s humbling and an immense honor to be considered for the Supreme Court.”

“The High Court plays a unique role in defending our Constitution, and there is no greater responsibility in public service than to support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Cruz added. “In the Senate, I have been blessed to lead the fight to preserve our constitutional liberties — every day, to defend the rights of 29 million Texans — and I look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come,”

Jake Tapper interview with Trump advisor goes off the rails after he accuses CNN of lying to Americans

LifeZette - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:36

Jake Tapper just had an interview with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro go off the rails on Sunday, with the official in Donald Trump’s administration accusing CNN of lying to Americans.

While appearing on “State of the Union,” Navarro accused Tapper and CNN of not being honest with the American people.

“Let’s [talk about] revelations from Bob Woodward’s book. … I want you to take a listen to what President Trump told Woodward in private on Feb. 7,” Tapper said, referring to a clip in which the president talked to Woodward about coronavirus.

“He’s stating that the coronavirus is five times deadlier than the regular influenza,” Tapper said of the president’s comments. “Now here’s what [the president] was saying publicly two weeks later.”

He then played another clip of Trump telling Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s senior medical correspondent, “The flu is much higher than that,” referring to a fatality ratio when compared to coronavirus infections.

“He was misleading the American people,” Tapper said. “Why?”

Navarro, however, was not having any of it.

“Give me a minute to walk through the timeline, because I think this is really important,” Navarro replied. “On Jan. 31, that was basically the starting gun to fight this virus that came in from the Chinese Communist Party. Let’s not forget where this started. And that was a signal from this president that this is a serious, serious matter. He’s taking down flights from China. He was called a xenophobe and a racist by Joe Biden, who later had to apologize.”

Tapper interrupted to claim that Biden never said that about Trump and never apologized, but Navarro did not stop there.

“So, Jan. 31, pulls down the flights, saves probably hundreds of thousands of American lives. … In that first week of February, leading up to Feb. 7, we here at the White House started a strategy,” he said. “It basically was, hope for the best, prepare for the worst, stay calm, and begin to attack this virus from China on four different vectors. PPE, therapeutics, vaccines.”

“I’m not giving you 10 minutes to do this,” Tapper warned, indicating that he was already preparing to cut the interview short.

“What happens on Feb. 9?” Navarro added. “This is the most important thing. A memo — I write a memo that goes out to the task force here that basically outlines President Trump’s strategy for dealing with the virus. And, in this memo, it brings to the effect that we need N95 masks.”

The situation escalated when Tapper repeatedly tried to interrupt him in the next few minutes.

“This is not fair, Jake,” Navarro said. “You’re constantly interrupting me and you’re not letting me talk. … You just don’t like the answer!”

Tapper continued to accuse the Trump advisor of lying before insisting, “You’re not answering the question,”

That’s when Navarro lost his temper.

“You’re not honest with the American people!” Navarro fired back. “CNN is not honest with the American people. Do you want to go there? We can do that. … I answered your question. … I answered the question repeatedly, Jake. You just didn’t like the answer.”

Tapper responded by cutting the interview short.

“I would just like to remind the American people watching that the United States has less than 5% of the world’s population, and the United States has more than 20% of the world’s coronavirus deaths,” he concluded. “That is a fact. It does not matter how many times he insults CNN.”

Navarro to Tapper: “You just don’t want to listen… CNN is not honest with the American people.”

NFL Fans Weigh COVID-19 Risks

Newsy - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:22

Watch Video

Jeramy Jussel and Justin Grimmett share a love for two things: sharp suits and the Denver Broncos. Together, they’ve attended hundreds of home games. 

"I'm Mr. Bronco. I'm the Denver dapper man. Together we're the Broncos brothers," they told Newsy.

But like many die-hard fans, this year, is different for them. With NFL games, come COVID-19 risks. 

The Broncos are one of the teams with no fans for their home opener. Some teams, like the Giants and Jets, don’t expect to host fans at all this season. 

Others, like the Kansas City Chiefs hosted tens of thousands of fans right away. 

"You've got to be loud. You've got to be super, super loud. So we've got to be five times as loud today with with five times fewer fans. Right," Brock Feathers, a Kansas City Chiefs fan said while tailgating. 

But the problem with that, Northwestern Medicine’s Dr. Irfan Hafiz says it's ideal for spreading the coronavirus. 

"When shouting or speaking very loudly or especially singing, there's definitely a lot of case reports. There is more aerosolization during those moments. So definitely the risk is a lot higher there," Hafiz, an infectious disease physician and the Northwest Region chief medical officer for Northwestern Medicine, told Newsy.

Doctors say fans cheering, getting up for a concession, or tailgating close to others is also risky.

Fans should be looking at their community spread or case positivity rate — that’s the percentage of all COVID-19 tests performed that are actually positive. Anything higher than 3 to 5 percent should be a reason to stay at home and not travel, near or far, to a game. 

"If your area's experiencing a higher number, you definitely don't want to be taking that risk of asymptomatic spread into a lower-risk area. That certainly can introduce that issue into the area that you're traveling to," Hafiz said. 

In Denver, the Bronco Brothers aren’t completely out of luck. Officials will adjust for a September 27th home game. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and team officials say some 5,700 paying fans can attend in "pods" of 175 people, sitting in isolated sections of Empower Field at Mile High stadium. 

“So, when you look at where people enter, the restrooms they use, the concessions they use, it's like a number of different groups of 175 that are there. That would allow for the groups that do have a outbreak, the contact tracing and the notification of others in that group,” Polis said.

"That's a very small percentage of fans that are gonna be allowed in," Jussel said.

There’s no tailgating until week three. 

"The level of excitement has just changed. And you've got to channel that energy in just a different way," Grimmett said. 

This season is strange for the Bronco Brothers. They’ll replace sitting in the stands with sitting in their living rooms for the next few weeks. But their spirit for their team...has never been greater. 

"We all come together for a few hours and we get to root for the home team and unite in orange," Jussel said.

"It's difficult because things are just uncertain and we're more divided than we've ever been. But we do love the Broncos and we want to encourage everybody to support each other, even though these games don't look like they used to," Grimmett said. 

Black Lives Matter Protesters Injured Surfing Cop Car and Blocking Traffic Near Site of President Trump Sacramento Visit (Video)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:21

Several Black Lives Matter protesters were injured while blocking traffic near the site of President Trump’s visit to Sacramento, California on Monday. Trump met with Governor Gavin Newsom and other officials about the devastating wildfires plaguing the West Coast.

Videos posted online show several incidents of protesters blocking traffic lanes and harassing drivers, including swarming a police car. One protester climbed on the hood the police car as it tried to escape the mob. The protester crawled hood, onto the windshield and up on the roof as the police car kept driving. The protester surfed off the roof down the rear window and tried unsuccessfully to land on his feet, instead spinning out and hitting the pavement hard.

Democrats in San Francisco Want 16-year-olds To Vote!

LifeZette - Mon, 09/14/2020 - 22:14

Continuing their attack on American democracy, democrats in San Francisco believe the best way to get more votes isn’t to sway citizens but to simply lower the age of voting. In the November election, residents of San Francisco will not only vote on the next president, but they will also decide if 16-year-old teenagers have the right to vote in local elections.

The Vote 16 proposition will give 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to vote ahead of major presidential elections, marking the first major city in America to grant voting rights to teenagers. Several towns around the United States have allowed teenagers to cast their ballot on local issues, with Takoma Park in Maryland being one of the latest in 2013.

Surprisingly, this isn’t a new tactic for democrats. In the 2016 Trump/Clinton showdown, democrats tried to get a similar proposition passed, but it ultimately failed when 52.1% of voters were against the proposal. It’s just the opinion of the writer, but maybe voters know how teenagers act and what motivates them.

According to Crystal Chan, an 18-year-old supporter of Vote 16 SF, the proposition would, “help youth of color in San Francisco establish the habit of voting at an earlier age, and really provide them with the support and the resources that they need to continue building on that habit as they grow older.”

A glimpse at the Vote 16 SF website bombards visitors with information about how important it is for teenagers to vote. The site claims, “Lowering the voting age can lead to a long-term increase in voter turnout, bringing more citizens in touch with their government and pushing the government to better serve its people.” It doesn’t end there as the site suggests teens are “affected by local political issues as much as anyone.”

While local elections are one thing, democrats want the power of teenagers to reach further than the cities they live in. In 2019, House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi suggested the voting age be lowered to 16. She said, “I, myself, personally, I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16. I think it’s really important to capture the kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this when they’re learning about government, to be able to vote.”

Not all those are in favor of lowering the voting age, even some young adults are against the move, knowing how gullible teens can be. Nate Hochman, a senior at Colorado College, says, “Sixteen-year-olds — they’re sophomores, juniors in high school like they’re deeply impressionable. They’re largely interested in learning what, you know, their friends are doing and appearing to be cool. And they’re not capable of making completely rational decisions about voting.”

What does science have to say on the matter? When looking at the brain, many child experts and neuroscientists agree that the prefrontal cortex doesn’t fully develop until the age of 25. The prefrontal cortex allows a person to view a situation with sound judgment and weigh the long-term consequences.
