Meghan McCain Clashes With ‘View’ Co-Hosts: ‘I’m Not Living Without Guns’

Meghan McCain Clashes With ‘View’ Co-Hosts: ‘I’m Not Living Without Guns’Returning for its 23rd season on Tuesday morning, The View started off right where it left off this summer: With conservative co-host Meghan McCain clashing with her colleagues on a hot-button social issue while grousing about being outnumbered by her liberal cohorts.Discussing this past weekend’s mass shooting in Odessa that left at least seven people dead, the panel noted that the shooter had actually failed a federal background check but was able to purchase a firearm due to the gun-show loophole. This prompted the majority of the table—including former Fox News host Abby Huntsman—to lament the lack of action on behalf of the Republican-led Senate to address gun violence.“If nothing is going to happen after Sandy Hook, I don’t know what it’s going to take,” Huntsman sighed.Moments later, McCain weighed in as the “chick on the panel that spent most of her break shooting.”Stating that there need to be more reporters in mainstream media on the “gun beat” because there are a lot of people on TV “talking about guns that clearly have never shot a gun,” McCain complained about Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke’s proposal for a mandatory gun buyback.“I will say this is a ground-level issue for me,” she added. “If you’re going to be a gun-grabber, you don’t get my vote, period. We got to have a different conversation.”Liberal co-host Joy Behar—a regular sparring partner of McCain’s—pointed out that there have been gun restrictions passed by previous Democratic administrations, specifically noting that the Clinton White House passed an assault-weapons ban.“The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far,” McCain declared. “I was just in the middle of Wyoming, if you're talking about taking people’s guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”“But they lived without them for many years during the ban,” Behar retorted.“I’m not living without guns,” McCain exclaimed. “It’s just that simple!”Hostin, meanwhile, asked if she could live without assault weapons, causing McCain to reiterate that the AR-15 was very popular before complaining that she was being “virtue signaled.”Huntsman, however, responded to her close friend, wondering if they could live in an America where you could “walk in a mall and not be nervous that someone is going to pull out a shotgun.”McCain asserted that she felt safe because she could protect herself because “I have guns at my house” before stopping herself short as she felt the audience wasn’t with her.“All right, welcome back,” she sarcastically muttered, sipping from her coffee mug.As the segment came to a close, McCain would pipe up once again about O’Rourke’s gun buyback proposal, insisting that her guns are “not for sale.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Prehistoric city offers glimpse of ancient living near Jerusalem

Prehistoric city offers glimpse of ancient living near JerusalemThe 9,000-year-old metropolis, uncovered during a survey before the construction of a new highway, is one of the biggest ever found, the Israel Antiquities Authority said on Tuesday. It covered dozens of acres near what is today the town of Motza, some five km (three miles) west of Jerusalem. “This is most probably the largest excavation of this time period in the Middle East, which will allow the research to advance leaps and bounds ahead of where we are today, just by the amount of material that we are able to save and preserve from this site,” Lauren Davis, an archaeologist with Israel’s antiquities authority, told Reuters.

Tucker Carlson: Ilhan Omar Is ‘Living Proof’ Our Immigration Laws Are ‘Dangerous’

Tucker Carlson: Ilhan Omar Is ‘Living Proof’ Our Immigration Laws Are ‘Dangerous’Fox News host Tucker Carlson ended his primetime program on Tuesday night by taking aim at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), claiming the Somalia-born congresswoman despises America and  is “living proof” that America’s immigration policies are “dangerous.”Omar, one of the first two Muslim women in the House of Representatives, has long been targeted by Carlson, who has devoted numerous segments to calling the progressive lawmaker “ungrateful” and a “symbol of America's failed immigration policies.”This time, however, the Fox News star took his anti-Omar stance even further.“Ilhan Omar has an awful lot to be grateful for, but she isn't grateful, not at all,” Carlson said. “After everything America has done for Omar and for her family, she hates this country more than ever.”Referencing a recent Washington Post profile on the freshman representative, the conservative commentator said the piece showed that Omar was “enraged” by America and that she has “undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people.”“That should worry you, and not just because Omar is now a sitting member of Congress,” Carlson warned his viewers. “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”The anti-immigration host went on to claim that the immigration system is now “undermining” the country because “some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately.”Stating that it is possibly American citizens’ fault for not having the self-confidence to “make them assimilate,” Carlson then wondered if the “problem is deeper than that—maybe we are importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours.”After insisting that current immigration is “unsustainable” and that no country can “expect to survive” when it imports “large numbers of people who hate it,” Carlson took one final parting shot at Omar.“So, be grateful for Ilhan Omar, annoying as she is,” he concluded. “She's a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration system immediately, or else.”The Minnesota lawmaker, meanwhile, has been the at the receiving end of death threats almost since she first entered Congress, largely due to right-wing attacks that have then been amplified by members of Congress and the president.Shortly after the segment aired, Omar took to Twitter to fire back at the Fox News host.“Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress,” she wrote. “No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect. They will just have to get used to calling me Congresswoman!”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Trump says migrants living 'far better now' in detention day after images of crowded cages published

Trump says migrants living 'far better now' in detention day after images of crowded cages publishedDonald Trump has claimed migrants in US detention centres are “living far better now”, a day after inspectors criticised squalid conditions and published images showing families held in overcrowded cages.As Democrats claimed the migrants were being denied basic human rights, the president launched a series of tweets defending his actions, and saying many of those in detention were living in better conditions than they were in the countries they had come from.“Many of these illegals aliens are living far better now than where they came from, and in far safer conditions,” he wrote. “No matter how good things actually look, even if perfect, the Democrat visitors will act shocked and aghast at how terrible things are.”He added: “If illegal immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built or refitted detentions centres, just tell them not to come. All problems solved.”The comments were made as the nation got ready to mark the July 4 national holiday and the president prepared to address crowds in Washington DC. Democrats condemned the conditions revealed by the department of homeland security’s office of inspector general, and said the president should act immediately. “How can anybody look at these photos and think this isn’t a human rights abuse,” tweeted California senator Kamala Harris, one of nearly two-dozen Democrats seeking the party’s nomination to take on Mr Trump next year.The inspectors’ report, based on visits to five facilities in Texas’s Rio Grande valley, found that children had few spare clothes, no laundry facilities and insufficient to eat. It also said many of the centres were extremely overcrowded. “At one facility, some single adults were held in standing-room-only conditions for a week, and at another, some single adults were held more than a month in overcrowded cells,” it said.“We are concerned that overcrowding and prolonged detention represent an immediate risk to the health and safety of DHS agents and officers, and to those detained.”The inspectors said in addition to holding roughly 30 per cent of minor detainees for longer than 72 hours, the facilities struggled to meet other federal standards. “For example, children at three of the five border patrol facilities we visited had no access to showers,” it added. “While all facilities had infant formula, diapers, baby wipes, and juice and snacks for children, we observed that two facilities had not provided children access to hot meals – as is required.” Mr Trump has doubled down on his position over immigration as he kicks off his reelection campaign, aware that few issues more energise his base.This week, a congressional delegation visited a detention centre operated by the border patrol agency in Clint, Texas, where hundreds of children were moved after it was revealed they were living in very poor conditions.Among those to visit was congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who accused border agents of conducting “psychological warfare” against detained migrants. She said they had told her they were told to drink water from toilets if they were thirsty.“Our border patrol people are not hospital workers, doctors or nurses,” said Mr Trump. “The Democrats’ bad immigration laws, which could be easily fixed, are the problem. Great job by border patrol, above and beyond.”

Hannity Warns Iran: ‘You’re Going to Get the Living Crap Bombed Out of You’

Hannity Warns Iran: ‘You’re Going to Get the Living Crap Bombed Out of You’Fox News host Sean Hannity kicked off his show Thursday night by promising President Trump would “bomb the hell of out Iran” for downing an American drone and lashing out at a fellow Fox News personality who advocated for restraint. Shortly after Fox News’ Tucker Carlson—who has been privately advising the president against war with Iran—praised Trump for initially resisting calls for military action, Hannity took a completely different approach, insisting that Iran has essentially left Trump no choice.“A strong message needs to be sent that a huge price will be paid if you take on the United State of America,” Hannity declared. “Simple peace through strength, and it works.”Following his short monologue, the pro-Trump primetime star welcomed on Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera, who immediately noted that Iran claims they “have absolute, undeniable proof” that the drone they shot down was over territorial waters. Hannity, meanwhile, wanted to hear none of it.“They shot an American drone out of the air, they are not getting away with it,” he huffed.As Rivera attempted to make the point that Iran may not be in the wrong if the drone was indeed over their airspace, Hannity said Trump was “very clear” that the aircraft was over international waters before claiming Iran wants to wipe “the United States off the map” and is “fomenting terror.”Rivera, for his part, cautioned against rushing into “another military conflict,” prompting Hannity to clarify that he just wanted the U.S. military to shoot missiles and drop bombs on Iran.“If you shoot an American missile or a drone out of the air and you attack tankers in the Strait of Hormuz, you’re going to get the living crap bombed out of you,” Hannity declared.The Fox host, who is reportedly referred to as the White House shadow chief of staff, went on to argue with Rivera some more, at one point describing Iranians as “radical terrorists” who “killed our boys in Iraq” when Rivera suggested a renegotiation of the 2015 nuclear deal that Trump pulled out of. “What has happened to you?!” Hannity yelled at one point to Rivera.“I want the next generation of military weaponry so we can’t let these idiots in Washington, they have to be able to blow them out of the water and they must pay to take out a drone in international waters,” he continued. “I’m not believing a word that these lying mullahs say!”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
