News for Monday, February 18, 2019 — Presidents Day
TOP OF FIRST HOUR:
(Fox News) Police say a black mass shooter in Aurora, IL, brought a gun to his termination meeting, & opened fire as soon as he was fired. The disgruntled worker went on a shooting rampage at a manufacturing warehouse in the Chicago suburb. Gary Martin, 45, was killed by police after he shot five people dead at the Henry Pratt Company, and injured 11, including five police officers, on Friday. Martin worked for the plant for 15 years, and his firing was the result of multiple workplace rule violations. After opening fire during the meeting, Martin then ran down aisles of the manufacturing plant and was shooting people using a pistol with a green laser sight on it. He killed a college student on his first day of an internship with the company, a human resources manager, a plant manager, a mold operator, and a stockroom attendant. The shootout lasted 90 minutes, and at least 3 of the 5 injured officers were still hospitalized as of Saturday.
(Fox News) The alleged mass killer Gary Martin had been convicted of aggravated assault in Mississippi in 1995, and wasn’t supposed to own a firearm since then. He was arrested several times for traffic stops and so-called “domestic violence.” Still in 2014, he passed a background check and bought a .40 caliber handgun, but later was denied a concealed-carry permit because his background check revealed a felony conviction. He was charged in 2017 for disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property.
(Fox News) A black arsonist! A California man was sentenced to 12 years in prison for starting a wildfire that forced over 7,000 to evacuate last summer. Brandon McGlover, 33, pleaded guilty to two counts of arson Thursday in connection to the Cranston Fire, which unfolded last July in Riverside County. He admitted to setting fire to several structures one day but gave no motive. The fire burned over 13,000 acres, destroying at least five homes in its path. Now the area’s at risk of mudslides. McGlover, from Temecula, was ordered to pay restitution to his victims, which could amount to millions of dollars. His attorney said, “He would like to offer his deepest sympathies to everyone who has been affected by these fires.” Victims said that they suffered from depression, anxiety and shock. One woman said her husband died after he suffered a heart attack as they were trying to escape the flames. The arsonist’s attorney requested that his client could be allowed to hug his parents, who also lived in the area. The judge did not allow the embrace, citing security concerns. (California saw at least six other major fires in the state last summer, including the Woolsey fire that burned down Hollywood actors’ homes, and the Camp Fire in NorCal, the deadliest and most destructive California fire to date, and the worst in America since 1918.)

BOTTOM OF FIRST HOUR:
(Fox News) 6 illegal immigrants linked to Mexican cartel arrested in NC for drug trafficking operation, officials say. A massive drug operation with ties to a Mexican drug cartel resulted in the arrest of six immigrants in the country illegally: Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel Gutierrez; Rodolfo Martinez, Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez and Francisco Garcia-Martinez. They transported large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine across state lines — for instance, from Texas to Georgia and North Carolina. Misty Joyner, one neighbor to the home where Rangel-Gutierrez stored drug money, said, “Just devastating, They were good people.” They were from the Jalisco New Generation cartel, a rival to the Sinaloa cartel, which was led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman who was convicted last Tuesday in NY, and had escaped “maximum-security prisons,” and his notoriety was perhaps rivaled only by the late Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. (National Emergency!)
TOP OF SECOND HOUR:
(CBS News) Nigerian brothers who grew up in Chicago reportedly say Jussie Smollett paid them to participate in alleged attack. Police said that Ola and Abel Osundairo were captured on surveillance video at the time Jussie said he was attacked, but they’re no longer suspects and are cooperating with police. Jussie’s attorney says he’s shocked and devastated that two men he knew may have been involved in the supposed attack, that one was his personal trainer for a music video. An evidence log from police who tore through their apartment showed ropes, masks and bleach. Jussie had said one of them told him, 'This is MAGA country, n*****.' One source claims he paid them $3500 each, then $500 when they returned from Nigeria. The whole liberal media called it “racist and homophobic” and a “HATE CRIME”! (NY Post) Cory Booker, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, Al Sharpton, and LESBIAN actress Ellen Page all made a scene. Ariana Grande tweeted, “what happened to jussie makes me really f—ing sick to my stomach. i can’t believe s–t like this is really still happening everyday.” GQ writer Joshua Rivera wrote a piece blaming “late-stage whiteness,” saying, “While its veracity isn’t confirmed, its sentiment needs no fact-check.” (Daily Caller) Nancy Pelosi deleted her tweet calling it a “racist, homophobic attack.”
(The American Mirror) Pelosi wishes ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ — on Valentine’s Day! The House Speaker held a public bill signing on Thursday, and during her remarks, she wished reporters a “Happy Thanksgiving” — 84 days late. She didn’t correct herself. The American Mirror says she’s been having what they call “brain freezes” in public statements lately speaking off the cuff, and mispronounces words a lot. Pelosi said “sentence” instead of “census,” and “far” instead of “fair.” She said “un-rend” instead of “end-run.”
(Fox News) 4 teens (black) were accused in the suspected rape of an 18-year-old in Idaho, on Thursday & Friday. 19-year-old Elias Lupango, 18-year-old Rashidi Mulanga and 18-year-old Swedi Iyombelo, all of Boise, ID, were charged, and a 16-year-old was arrested as well. The 3 men are from Tanzania, Africa. Iyombelo had been in the U.S. for five months and the other two for three years, and they’d worked at McDonald’s, and the 16-year-old was “also a refugee,” held in juvenile detention. So this 18-year-old woman was allegedly raped around Feb. 7 after agreeing to meet one of the men. She initially consented to having sex with Iyombelo, but then told him to stop. Police say the three other defendants then took turns raping the victim. She was afraid that if she told them to stop, she’d be killed. A public defender said, "Apparently she had been aware that there were four of them and that they were going to pay her for sex. There's a little more to this story than we all know at this point." (What kind of people are we bringing into this country?)

BOTTOM OF HOUR 2:
Trump tweeted: “Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!” He also tweeted: “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!” (Daily Mail) 9 hours earlier liberal actor Alec Baldwin had dressed up like Trump in a skit saying, ‘we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe… you can all see why I have to fake this national emergency.'
(Daily Mail) One in six BBC stars 'must be gay or lesbian or disabled' by 2020 says new staff-hiring guidelines at the corporation. In a bid to deter criticism that it has been failing to reflect its audience, the BBC has pledged that LGBT and disabled people will each make up eight per cent of all on-air and on-screen roles. Half of all corporation's on-screen and broadcasting roles will go to women. Representation of ethnic minorities remains at target of 15 per cent. A black man Tunde Ogungbesan is head of diversity, inclusion and succession at the BBC. The BBC's new diversity targets follow a debate in the House of Commons led by (a black man) David Lammy MP (member of parliament) on the issue of the broadcaster's diversity
TOP OF THIRD HOUR:
(Fox News) A Cancun club shooting leaves 5 dead, 5 wounded, authorities say. At least five people were killed and another five were wounded Saturday after four gunmen opened fire inside a club in Cancun, Mexico. The men, armed with a long gun and three handguns, opened fire inside La Kuka. Two of the five wounded in the shooting remain in critical condition on Sunday. The state of Quintana Roo, where Cancun is located, saw 774 people killed in the state last year, compared to the recorded 359 killings in 2017. The Jalisco New Generation cartel is reportedly moving into the Caribbean resort city and fighting other local gangs to gain control of the area. In January, three gunmen in Cancun shot and killed seven people at a home, ordered by a suspected gang leader.
(Fox News) Homicide cases in Mexico rose by 33 percent in 2018, shattering the country’s record for the second consecutive year. The U.S. State Department’s travel advisory in November urged people to “exercise increased caution” when traveling to Mexico due to crime. “Violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, is widespread.”
(Fox News) McCabe says Rosenstein was 'absolutely serious' about secretly recording Trump. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said in in a 60 Minutes broadcast Sunday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein "was not joking" when he suggested secretly recording President Donald Trump in the Oval Office following the May 2017 dismissal of FBI Director James Comey. He allegedly said, "I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device. They wouldn't know it was there…. He was absolutely serious. And in fact, he brought it up in the next meeting we had." Days later, Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the bureau's investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. Rosenstein denies that he “pursued or authorized recording the president,” or that he broached the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president. The liberals were trying to call Trump mentally ill. (McCabe is pushing a new book he has out.)
(Fox News) 9 LSU fraternity members arrested for shocking hazing incidents. Nine fraternity members at Louisiana State University were arrested on Thursday for charges connected to shocking hazing incidents that took place last fall. The Delta Kappa Epsilon members, all aged between 19 and 23, stand accused of kicking pledges with steel-toed boots, beating them with a metal pipe and urinating on them, among other horrific offenses, Buzzfeed News reports. One student seeking to join the fraternity said he was forced to get naked, climb inside an ice machine that was filled with water and frozen ice, and stay there for 30 to 45 minutes. According to an affidavit, he said he didn't get out of the ice machine because "he felt he would have been beaten up if he did." Afterward, he reportedly was forced to lie on his back on a basketball court covered in broken glass alongside another pledge, where they were "sprayed with a hose, had milk crates thrown at them, and were urinated on."
(Fox News) Greek life at LSU has been under scrutiny following the 2017 death of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver. While pledging the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, he was allegedly forced to drink so much that his blood alcohol level spiked to 0.495 percent, causing him to die of alcohol poisoning. Four fraternity members were subsequently charged in connection to Gruver's death, and the boy's parents filed a $25 million federal lawsuit against the university board.
BOTTOM OF THIRD HOUR:
(Real Clear Politics) Former Vice President Joe Biden told the Munich Security Conference in Germany that President Trump's policy towards refugees and immigrants was "an embarrassment" and "the American people know overwhelmingly that it is not right." He said, "The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that's not right. The American people understand… it makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly that it is not right. That it is not who we are." (Beta!) (Daily Mail) He says he’ll decide soon whether to run for president.
(Fox News) Firefighters save cougar from tree in stunning rescue (unlike that runner who killed one with his bare hands and rocks). Firefighters have rescued a very big cat — a mountain lion — from a tree outside a home in the Southern California desert. He was perched on a branch about 50 feet high outside the San Bernardino Mountains. State wildlife personnel tranquilized the animal. Firefighters lowered it to the ground using a rescue harness. Attacks on humans are rare but the big cats will prey on pets and livestock.
