Rep. Tom Reed: Scott Pelley should 'never be employed in the media again' after Scalise comments

by Sean Langille
| Jun 19, 2017, 6:56 PM

Rep. Tom Reed on Monday condemned news anchor Scott Pelley for suggesting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's shooting might have been "to some degree, self-inflicted."

"For CBS News' Scott Pelley to describe the brutal shooting of Congressman Scalise as 'self- inflicted' was beyond the pale and further proved that the Mainstream Media has completely lost any moral compass to guide its journalistic endeavors," Reed, R-N.Y., said in a statement Monday.

Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as CBS Evening News anchor Friday, said last week, "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."

"Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence," Pelley added.

Reed called Pelley's commentary "despicable" and says his departure from the anchor chair at the CBS Evening News came a day too late.

"Mr. Pelley should be ashamed of himself for doing the despicable deed of blaming the victim. He should never be employed in the media again by any forum or entity," Reed added.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says the congressman grievously injured in last week’s shooting at a Republican baseball practice is “on the road to recovery” but it will take some time.

Ryan made the comments to reporters Wednesday morning. Members of the House were wearing purple-and-gold fleur-de-lis lapel stickers, a familiar symbol in Louisiana — Rep. Steve Scalise’s home state.

The majority whip remains in serious condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center after a gunman opened fire at the practice in Alexandria, Virginia, a week ago.

Scalise, 51, was struck in the hip and the bullet shattered blood vessels, bones and internal organs. Doctors said he had arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death.

State May Pull Hillary’s Security Clearance Over Private Email Server

Richard Pollock
Reporter

8:55 AM 06/21/2017

State Department officials have opened “a formal inquiry” into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server located in her New York residence, and are considering whether she and her aides should lose their security clearances, Fox News reports.

Officials are investigating her use of a private server in the basement of her Chapaqua, New York, mansion to determine if she mishandled classified information during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, Fox reported in news the outlet said is confirmed by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.

Former FBI Director James Comey said in a July 2016 press conference that Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” But he did not recommend prosecution of Clinton or any of her aides, a move that generated widespread criticism.

Pelosi takes heat after Dem loss

VIDEO:

Democratic leaders in the House are taking heat after the party’s disappointing special-election defeat in Georgia.

Some lawmakers were quick to blame their leadership for Jon Ossoff’s defeat to Republican Karen Handel, saying the party failed to learn the 2016 lesson that running against President Trump without a positive message of your own is not enough to win elections.

“We’d better take a good, long, strong look in the mirror and realize that the problem is us, it’s the party,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday morning as he left a closed-door meeting of the Democratic Caucus in the Capitol.

Republican win for Karen Handel in Georgia byelection a victory for Donald Trump

Paul McGeough




VIDEO

Washington: The candidate said it was not about Donald Trump, but the President and others made it about Trump and, on a rainy night in Georgia, they got their answer: to the extent that it was a referendum on Trump, he won.

More a political slugfest than a byelection, the candidates and outside political action committees spent more than a record $US50 million ($66 million) in the contest for a well-heeled, well-educated and Fox News friendly pocket of the Atlanta suburbs.

And on the back of an Associated Press declaration that Handel had won by a margin of five points, Trump won.

Uncharacteristically, Trump made the win all about Handel, tweeting late in the evening: "Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!"

LEADERS and THE TRUTH_ Obama White House counsel part of early talks on Clinton email release, notes show

FOX NEWS

WHITE HOUSE

Obama White House counsel part of early talks on Clinton email release, notes show

By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne


Published May 05, 2017 Fox News





The Obama administration’s White House counsel was directly involved in deliberations over the release of Hillary Clinton emails as early as spring 2015, according to handwritten FBI agent notes released by the bureau late Friday.

The notes read: "Pat Kennedy (early May '15) calls interagency MTG (meeting) re: scheduled release by JAN '16, asking quick turnarounds - WH Counsel, CIA, etc...OSD, DNI, NSC and (redacted)"

The notes offer a raw account of the case from the perspective of FBI agents. Much of the content already had been documented in previously released FBI interview summaries, called 302s. The reference to “Counsel,” however, appears to be the earliest confirmation of White House involvement.

From the outset, the White House tried to put distance between itself and the former secretary of state’s personal email controversy. The records were also released to Judicial Watch which sued in federal court.

On March 7, 2015, then-President Barack Obama told CBS News that he learned about Clinton's private server for government business from the media. “The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” he said. But an email sent from Clinton aide Cheryl Mills later that day, and published by WikiLeaks, shows she told Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta otherwise: "We need to clean this up. He has emails from her -- they do not say state.gov."

The newly released notes, from an interview with a State Department employee, also show how the department's No. 3 at the time, Patrick Kennedy, tried to convince an FBI agent to change the classification of the Clinton emails, arguing they did not contain sensitive information. This was first reported by Fox News in September 2015, and later described in an FBI summary released last year as a "quid pro quo."

At the time, Kennedy and the State Department denied the charge, which was credible.

The notes also cover how FBI agents were expecting 14 bankers boxes of Clinton emails from her lawyer’s firm Williams & Connolly, but only received 12, as Fox News reported in October. The two boxes have never been accounted for.


Catherine Herridge is an award-winning Chief Intelligence correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC) based in Washington, D.C. She covers intelligence, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security. Herridge joined FNC in 1996 as a London-based correspondent.

Pamela K. Browne is Senior Executive Producer at the FOX News Channel (FNC) and is Director of Long-Form Series and Specials. Her journalism has been recognized with several awards. Browne first joined FOX in 1997 to launch the news magazine “Fox Files” and later, “War Stories.”

OPINION

US plane manufacturers just won the Paris air show

by Tom Rogan

US plane manufacturers just won the Paris air show


VIDEO:

Every year, the global aircraft industry gathers in Paris. It's a chance to network, discuss new technologies, and make big purchases.

United States manufacturers were the stars of this week's show. They gave us a pathway to creating hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

On the military front, Lockheed Martin impressed attendees with an F-35 fighter jet display. Following cost overruns and other problems, the F-35 needed to put on a good show. Put simply, prospective purchasers wanted assurance that buying F-35s wouldn't be an expensive waste of their money.

In Monday's display, they got that confidence booster. After all its problems, the F-35 performed exceptionally. It illustrated high-end maneuvering and versatility in rapid speed transitions. Those characteristics give investors confidence that the F-35's dogfighting (close in combat) and close air support (supporting troops on the ground) capabilities are up to par. And for F-35 investors, par is "better than any other fighter on Earth".

The display seems to have paid off. According to Reuters, Lockheed is now close to signing $37 billion in F-35 purchase deals with 11 different nations. That's good news for thousands of U.S. workers who work in the F-35 production line. But it's also good news for U.S. security. As I've noted, for all its delays and struggles, the F-35 affords confidence of air superiority in a prospective conflict with China or Russia.

Still, Lockheed wasn't the only U.S. winner in Paris.

Boeing also won big. Upgrading its latest market forecast, Boeing predicted more than 41,000 new aircraft orders over the next 20 years. If that holds true, it will be worth more than $6 trillion to the U.S. company. The market reflects this: Boeing's stock has risen 8 points in the last week.

FBI To Announce Findings In GOP Baseball Shooting Investigation

Peter Hasson Associate Editor
3:54 PM 06/20/2017

The FBI is holding a press conference Wednesday morning to announce the results of its investigation into last week’s attempted mass assassination of Republican lawmakers and staffers, the agency announced on Tuesday.

FBI Assistant Director in Charge Andrew Vale and Special Agent in Charge Timothy Slater will be joined by Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Michael Boxler.

The Daily Caller was the first to report last week that FBI officials discovered a list of Republican lawmakers in James T. Hodgkinson’s possession when he opened fire at a congressional baseball practice, wounding four people including Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise. All six lawmakers on the list were members of the House Freedom Caucus — the most conservative members in the lower chamber. (RELATED: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body)

The FBI also recovered a cell phone and computer from Hodgkinson’s van at the scene, the agency announced last Thursday.

The 66-year-old Hodgkinson, a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter, frequently espoused angry rhetoric on social media and belonged to anti-Republican groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate The Republican Party.” The members of that group celebrated Hodgkinson’s attempt at murdering Republican congressmen.

Hodgkinson volunteered on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign, leading the socialist Sanders to disavow Hodgkinson’s actions after the shooting.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act,” Sanders said in a prepared statement last Wednesday. “Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

Hodgkinson was originally from Illinois but traveled to the nation’s capital in the weeks before the shooting.

His widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said last week that she had “no idea” that Hodgkinson was going to carry out the murders. The would-be shooter told his wife that he was going to Washington, D.C. to “work on taxes” and “change the tax brackets,” she said.

GEORGIA TANN'S SHOCKING CRIMES_ This woman stole over 5000 children from the poor to give to the rich

This woman stole over 5000 children from the poor to give to the rich


June 20, 201710:24pm

Nick Poppy, NY Post

BABIES were snatched off the streets by strangers in passing cars. Or taken from daycare centres or church basements where they played.

Or stolen from hospitals, right after birth, passed from doctor to nurse to a uniformed “social worker” — before vanishing in an instant.

Some were dropped into dismal orphanages; others were sent to a new family, their identities wiped, no questions asked. Most would never see their birth parents again.

While it sounds like something out of Dickens or the Brothers Grimm, this happened in the United States in the 20th century. Thousands of times.

It was the dark handiwork of the Memphis branch of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, a supposedly charitable organisation, led by a woman named Georgia Tann.

Tank was a pied piper without scruple; she was the mastermind behind a black market for white babies (especially blond-haired, blue-eyed ones) that terrorised poor Southern families for almost three decades.

It’s estimated that over 5000 children were stolen by Tann and the society between 1924 and 1950 and that some 500 died at the society’s hands as a result of poor care, disease and, it is suspected, abuse.

Particularly vulnerable were newborns. In 1945 alone, as many as 50 children perished in a dysentery outbreak. The precise figure, like so many terrible details about the society, is not known.

Tann had various means of procuring babies and children for her wealthy customers. She bribed nurses and doctors in birthing wards, who would then tell new parents that their babies had been stillborn. Her organisation was quick to snatch babies born in prisons and mental wards. Older children were grabbed off the street by Tann’s agents and were told their parents had died.

To cover their tracks, the society falsified adoption records and destroyed any trace of these children’s origins.

Lisa Wingate brings these shocking crimes and their long-term emotional impact to light in her affecting new novel, Before We Were Yours, out now. The book tells the story of two families — the wealthy, connected Staffords and the dirt-poor “river gypsy” Fosses.

Though her tale is fictional, it stems from the true, terrible events of the Tennessee tragedy. Tank and her associates would tear apart one family to benefit another, creating wounds not easily healed. The loss would linger, like a phantom limb, for generations.

Tann would tell adoptive parents that the children were “blank slates,” Wingate tells The New York Post .

“What really resonated with me is that they’re not. Foster kids, adopted kids, they’re not blank slates. They’re people. And they have genetic tendencies and ... talents and abilities that are all their own.”

Tann’s background was a privileged one. Born in Hickory, Mississippi, in 1891, her father was a district court judge. One of Judge Tann’s responsibilities was dealing with homeless children who were wards of the state. Georgia’s older brother, Rob Roy Tann, may have been one of these children, adopted by the Tann family.

Tann had designs on a career in the law, but her father deemed that profession too “masculine” for his only daughter. Forced to study music, she taught for a time before finding a job in the nascent field of social work in 1916.

Working as a field agent for the Mississippi Children’s Home-Finding Society in Jackson, she may have gotten a taste for the power that she would later wield over so many families. She began placing poor children in adoptive homes, without the consent of both birth parents.

Child welfare laws weren’t as strict as they are today, allowing Tann to wheel and deal in her role. But Tann was not careful with her work, nor with covering up her trail, and at least one birth parent sued for return of her children.

It seemed Mississippi was not the right market for a baby-resale business. Judge Tann had connections in Memphis, and after a brief foray in Texas his daughter moved there to work for the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in 1924.

Soon after, she launched her adoption scheme. To drum up business, Tann placed advertisements aimed at potential adoptive parents in newspapers.

One featured a photo of smiling, towheaded infants with the caption, “Want a Real, Live Christmas Present?” As if children were dolls or puppies.

Tann presented herself as a kindly matron and pioneer of a new kind of social work — all the while destroying lives and families. Tank was abetted by the famously corrupt political machine in Memphis, headed by E.H. “Boss” Crump.

Crump, also a transplanted Mississippian, was the sometime mayor and leader of politics in the city for much of the first half of the 20th century.

He developed a cozy patronage relationship with Tann — she paid him off and brought the fame of her society to Memphis. He in turn protected her from prying investigations, while city police ignored the complaints of families who’d lost children to Tann and sometimes even helped Tann seize kids.

Tann’s most useful co-conspirator was Camille Kelley, a juvenile-court judge in the city. Like Tann, Kelley pretended to act in the best interests of children. With the stroke of a pen, Kelley would remove parental rights and transfer them to Tann, clearing a path for adoption.

Tank was essentially waging class war. She held to the belief that there were two kinds of people: the poor, whom she viewed as incompetent parents, and the wealthy. She fattened her own coffers in the process.

The big money came from interstate adoptions, especially to New York and LA, for which the agency would charge as much as $5000. Most of that fee was pocketed by Tann, who was given to travelling in chauffeured Packards.

Among the Tennessee Children’s Home Society’s clientele was that paragon of maternal love, Joan Crawford, who adopted her twin daughters Cathy and Cynthia through the organisation in 1947. Mid-century Hollywood power couple June Allyson and Dick Powell used the agency to adopt their daughter, Pamela. Lana Turner, Pearl S. Buck and New York Gov. Herbert Lehman were also clients. And future pro wrestler Ric Flair was among Tann’s abductees.

As word of Tann’s tactics started to spread, even some adoptive parents started to object. But, in many cases, Tann had these people over a barrel — they were complicit in her operation and feared losing their children. Whispers and accusations went nowhere.

For years, she was too prominent, too well connected, for anything to stick.

In the mid-1940s, Tann was diagnosed with uterine cancer and could sense that her adoption racket was beginning to unravel. Boss Crump’s political influence was starting to wane.

Gordon Browning, a Crump enemy, was elected governor in 1948. When rumours of Tann’s baby racket reached his ears, he saw a way to humiliate his political rival. In the final months of Tann’s life, Browning appointed a special investigator to look into her practices. Such was Tann’s remaining influence that the state’s case against her was announced only days before her death, in September 1950.

Even then, the brunt of the accusations against Tann had to do with her pocketing money from a state-funded enterprise, rather than kidnapping.

Georgia Tann was 59 years old when she died at home of cancer. She never had to face the music for her terrible crimes. She left no money to children’s causes, nor to the Tennessee Children’s Home Society. The home was closed two months later.

Word of Tann’s shocking crimes became national news. “Dead Director Blamed in Baby Black Market,” reported the Chicago Tribune. But though Tann had placed children in every state, few attempts were made at the time to connect birth parents with their children.

A version of the Tann story was told in the 1993 made for TV movie Stolen Babies (Mary Tyler Moore starred as the infamous baby-dealer), and a more thorough account of her crimes can be found in the nonfiction book The Baby Thief by journalist Barbara Bisantz Raymond.

Shortly after Tann’s death, her co-conspirator Kelley announced her retirement from her judgeship. Protected by the Crump machine, she, too, avoided prosecution and died in 1955 from a stroke.

Boss Crump preceded Kelley in death by a year. Memphis drivers honour the former mayor by taking Crump Boulevard across town from Route 55 to Route 78.

Today, the legacy of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children’s Home Society is a painful and complicated one.

Ironically, an accidental benefit of her work was popularising adoption for parents unable to conceive. Before Tann, adoption in the United States was uncommon, but after she became known, the stigma over the practice was largely lifted.

At the same time, a damaging legal procedure was put in place: Tann championed the practice of closed, secretive adoptions. Adoption records were sealed, and adopted children were barred from learning the identities of their birth parents.

This legislation is still in place in many states. Tellingly, Tennessee was the first state to lift these laws, in 1999.

Meanwhile, the emotional cost of Tann’s decades-long scheme is incalculable. Thousands of families were torn apart; parents never saw their children again and siblings were permanently separated. Lisa Wingate’s novel tells of one such family.

“If you’d invented that story, it would seem so far-fetched that you would think, ‘That could never happen. Not in this country,’” Wingate says. “And yet, it did, and it did for a long time.”

For Wingate, this story “still matters today, because there are still so many kids that need that one advocate, that one place to be, that one person who will step in.” She continues, “we do have to still be watching for things that are not above board or are corrupt, where children are being used for profits of one kind or another. That’s on all of us, as a public.”

Gutfeld: The Left Attacks Scalise’s Politics During His Recovery



June 19, 2017 9:39pm - As seen on The Five


Greg Gutfeld blasted MSNBC host Joy Reid for politicizing the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.)

Reid noted on Twitter that Crystal Griner, the officer who shot "a white man with a violent background" - shooter James Hodgkinson - is black and a lesbian.

"She blamed the race of the shooter, [but] didn't bring up his beliefs," Gutfeld said. Gutfeld said Hodgkinson was a fan of Reid's network.
