Texas Republican Tells Beto ‘My AR Is Ready for You’ in Response to Gun Confiscation Vow

Texas Republican Tells Beto ‘My AR Is Ready for You’ in Response to Gun Confiscation VowA Republican state representative issued what Beto O'Rourke is referring to as a "death threat" last night in response to O'Rourke's vow to pursue gun confiscation policies if elected president.Briscoe Cain, who represents the Houston area in the Texas state legislature, wrote “my AR is ready for you Robert Francis” in a since deleted tweet sent Thursday night in response to's O'Rourke enthusiastic confirmation that he would forcibly confiscate AR-15 and AK-47 rifles if elected.“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O'Rourke said during the third Democratic primary debate in Houston.O'Rourke responded to Cain's tweet by arguing that the message alone should disqualify him from owning an AR-15.> This is a death threat, Representative. Clearly, you shouldn't own an AR-15—and neither should anyone else. pic.twitter.com/jsiZmwjMDs> > — Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) September 13, 2019Twitter deleted Cain's tweet roughly two hours after it was posted because it violated the company's prohibition against issuing violent threats.O'Rourke's campaign told CNN that it plans to report Cain's message to the FBI.The former Texas congressman has prioritized impassioned pleas for increased gun control during most public appearances since 22 people were shot and killed in a Walmart in his hometown of El Paso last month.In addition to calling for a policy of mandatory confiscation, in which gun owners who refused to sell their firearms to the government would be criminally liable, O'Rourke is urging major financial institutions not to finance gun transactions.“However inadvertent or deliberate, credit card companies and banks profit off of those who terrorize our communities,” O’Rourke said in an email to voters on Thursday. “And we know that in this moment, no one can sit on the sidelines. Everyone has a responsibility to do their part.”O'Rourke's gun-control proposal, released last month, also calls for the creation of a national gun registry, and a ban on bump-stocks, silencers, and magazines that hold more than ten rounds.

British Airways tells passengers not to turn up at airports, as airline's biggest ever strike begins

British Airways tells passengers not to turn up at airports, as airline's biggest ever strike beginsBritish Airways has told its passengers not to turn up at airports as the biggest strike action in the airline’s 100 year history begins on Monday. More than 1,500 flights have been cancelled as the company was accused of bullying its own staff by union bosses, who warned they could continue the action until the end of the year. Some 280,000 people will be affected by the strike which is set to continue on Tuesday, costing BA £80m in lost revenue. BA and The British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) are clashing after the union rejected a proposed 11.5 per cent pay rise for its pilots, taking their pay package to around £200,000 a year. BALPA says that BA “has resorted to breaking agreements and threatening pilots who will strike, which is bound to make matters worse” after they emailed their 4,300 pilots on Friday warning that strike action would be a ‘serious breach’ of their contract. BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton said: "British Airways must now put the needs of its staff and passengers first and accept that its pilots will not be bullied or fobbed off." Credit: BALPA The airline further threatened to withdraw a travel perk, where staff can book tickets for ten per cent of the full fare plus taxes, for three years if they chose to strike. BALPA branded the airline’s behaviour “illogical and irresponsible” and “will further deepen the fall out with their pilots.” Flights to New York, Delhi, Hong Kong and Johannesburg have all been affected, with the airline telling passengers: “If your flight is cancelled, please do not go to the airport.”  One passenger, Kenneth Farrington, told the BBC that he thought his holiday “was in ruins.” Travellers have been offered full refunds, flights on different carriers, or the option to fly on a different date, but should not turn up at the airport without a confirmed flight. On Sunday, 50 flights were cancelled over fears of a lack of space to park planes at Heathrow and Gatwick, and the knock on effect will last well into the week. Long haul captains at the airline earn an average base salary of £167,000 a year, while co-pilots take home £70,000. British Airways say they made a “fair” offer of an 11.5 per cent pay rise over three years, plus a one per cent bonus. The deal was already accepted by members of the Unite and GMB unions, which represent 90 per cent of British Airways’ staff. BALPA says that now the company is in better financial health, its members should see a greater share of the profits and have a mandate for strike action until January, raising fears of Christmas travel chaos. British Airways said on Sunday: “We're extremely sorry for the problems caused by the strike action called by the pilots’ union, BALPA on 9, 10 and 27 September. “We continue to be available for constructive talks with BALPA, on the basis that there are no pre-conditions to those talks. “If you have a flight booked with us on those dates, it is likely that you will not be able to travel as planned due to BALPA’s strike action. We are offering all affected customers full refunds or the option to re-book to another date of travel or alternative airline.” Compensation due for a cancelled flight On Sunday, BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton said: “British Airways needs to wake up and realise its pilots are determined to be heard. “They’ve previously taken big pay cuts to help the company through hard times. Now BA is making billions of pounds of profit, its pilots have made a fair, reasonable and affordable claim for pay and benefits. “BALPA has consistently offered up chances for the company to negotiate a way forward. British Airways must now put the needs of its staff and passengers first and accept that its pilots will not be bullied or fobbed off. “But the company’s leaders, who themselves are paid huge salaries and have generous benefits packages, won’t listen, are refusing to negotiate and are putting profits before the needs of passengers and staff. “This strike will have cost the company considerably more than the investment needed to settle this dispute. “It is time to get back to the negotiating table and put together a serious offer that will end this dispute.” This is the second time in a month that BALPA have been involved in pay disputes with airlines, after Ryanair pilots were reportedly demanding pay rises of up to 121%, according to the airline.  Ryanair accused BALPA of "excessive and unexplained demands for pay increases" and a secret memo seen by the Telegraph, which was drawn up by the airline, showed pay package demands of up to £350,000 a year. Strike action has already taken place twice this summer, with more disruption planned for later this month.

Fox Business Host Stuart Varney Tells Joe Walsh: Trump Has Never Lied

Fox Business Host Stuart Varney Tells Joe Walsh: Trump Has Never LiedFox Business Network host Stuart Varney proclaimed with a straight face on Friday morning that President Donald Trump has never lied to the American people, asserting that Trump has only ever exaggerated and spun.During an interview with former one-term tea party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), who recently announced a long-shot primary bid against Trump, the Fox host took issue with Walsh’s insistence that Trump is a pathological liar, asking the ex-congressman for specifics.Walsh, meanwhile, pointed to recent reports that White House aides have admitted that the president recently faked high-level phone calls with China regarding trade in an effort to boost markets, something Varney claimed doesn’t count as a lie.“That’s not a lie,” Varney exclaimed. “If the man said and he did that high-level talks had been held with China, that is not a lie. They were held with China.”“Stuart, he said there were high-level phone calls with Chinese officials, his staff admitted that was not true, that he lied in order to manipulate the market,” Walsh retorted, prompting Varney to wave him off.“Give me another one,” the pro-Trump anchor huffed.Walsh, however, pushed back, asking Varney if he genuinely didn’t believe that was a lie. When the Fox Business host insisted he did not and personally objected to Walsh calling it one, the former Republican lawmaker then wondered if Varney actually believed if Trump has ever fibbed.“Stuart, do you believe this president lies?” Walsh asked.“No,” Varney replied.“You don’t believe he’s ever lied?” Walsh shot back in disbelief.“He exaggerates and spins,” the Fox host retorted.“Okay. Do you believe he’s ever told the American people a lie?” Walsh pressed again.“No,” Varney stated.From there, Varney tried to flip it back around on Walsh, asking him if he lied when he said President Barack Obama was a Muslim, causing Walsh to admit it was a lie and that he’s apologized for that.Varney’s delusional declaration that the president—who has told at least 12,000 lies and false statement since entering the White House—has never lied comes on the heels of Trump 2020 campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany saying the same thing on CNN earlier this week, flooring CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Netanyahu tells Macron timing wrong for Iran talks: statement

Netanyahu tells Macron timing wrong for Iran talks: statementPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday to avoid new talks with Israel’s regional arch-foe Iran, his office said, as European leaders pushed to save the 2015 nuclear deal. “This is precisely the wrong timing to hold talks with Iran, while it is increasing its aggression in the region,” Netanyahu told Macron in a telephone conversation that was initiated by the French leader, according to the Israeli statement. Macron on Sunday paved the way for a potential breakthrough in the standoff between Washington and Tehran over the nuclear deal after Iran’s foreign minister made a flying visit for talks with host France at the G7 summit.
