Former NFL player turned Army Ranger blasts LeBron James’ incendiary tweet: The left has ‘taken over’ every sector of American life

Jake Bequette, a former New England Patriots player turned Army Ranger, told “Fox & Friends” Thursday that a tweet sent by NBA star LeBron James Wednesday is dangerous on several levels, warning that leftism has “taken over” almost every single sector of American life.

James came under heavy fire on Wednesday night for sharing a photo of the police officer involved in a Columbus, Ohio, shooting and wrote, “YOU’RE NEXT. #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The officer in question was captured on video in the aftermath of the fatal shooting of knife-wielding 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant on Tuesday.

What are the details?

Bequette, who played for the Patriots from 2012 to 2015, said that the left is intent on taking over all factions of American society as we know it.

When asked why he believes tweets and public statements like that from James are becoming “increasingly prevalent,” Bequette explained that sports and the U.S. military “represent the ‘final frontier’ of meritocracy, patriotism, and institutions of traditional American values, which the left is intent on subverting.”

“They’re not gonna stop until they’ve taken over everything,” he warned.

He also said that politics in sports and the military is a “tragedy” and said that those on professional sports teams and those serving in the military need to focus on the greater message: winning.

“We have to train our military with that perspective and focus, not these woke leftist ideologies that have no place on the battlefield or on the playing field,” he added.

James deleted the offending post following the backlash and later attempted to explain his thought process behind it.

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself!” he wrote. “Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”

He added, “I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate — This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”

Fox & Friends Greg abbott covid Intelwars Mask mandates texas Texas reopening Videos Will Cain

Overjoyed Fox host Will Cain celebrates Texas’ reopening in packed diner: ‘This is freedom right here’

Fox News host Will Cain went viral for celebrating freedom at a crowded Texas diner amid Texas’ statewide reopening.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R)
announced in early March that the statewide mask mandate would be rescinded and businesses could reopen at 100% capacity if they so desired beginning on March 9.

What are the details?

A clearly excited Cain appeared at a crowded Texas diner on Wednesday, where he interviewed customers.

“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy introduced Cain on Wednesday morning, who appeared at Bill Smith’s Cafe in McKinney, Texas, for a Breakfast with Friends event via livestream.

“Let me show you what 100% capacity looks like,” Cain said. “This is freedom right here.”

Later in the segment, Cain spoke with a diner who said that states should never have been locked down during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Here in Texas, we probably closed down a little too tight,” he said. “Gov. Abbott has changed. You look at New York and California, they have stuck with the lockdown process. [Gov. Ron] DeSantis in Florida left his state very wide open, had a high percentage of at-risk people, and performed well.”

Elsewhere during the clip, Cain introduced criminal defense attorney Roland Monteros.

“Assess the situation and think for yourself,” Monteros said. “Like Rush Limbaugh wanted us to do. Think for yourself. Don’t do what Rush would do. Don’t do what you think Walt Disney would do. Do what you would do after you assess the situation. Think for yourself.”

Cain also spoke with a diner named Gus, a retired New York City police sergeant, who moved to Texas from New York City a decade ago.

During the exchange, Cain asked what brought Gus to Texas.

“I like my guns, and I lean a certain way, and I came here to assimilate,” Gus said to a round of applause from other diners.

When it comes to mask-wearing, Cain ultimately said that people should be left to make their own choices.

“People treat people as adults, not children, and they’ll make adult decisions,” he said. “Responsible decisions.”

Coronavirus in the white house Fox & Friends Fox and Friends Intelwars Mark Meadows President Donald Trump Reports Trump covid-19 Trump cured

White House chief of staff says president might be discharged Monday, takes aim at critics upset that Trump briefly left hospital over the weekend

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows says that he and the administration are optimistic about President Donald Trump being able to return to the White House on Monday following his COVID-19 diagnosis.

Trump spent the weekend at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center where he received treatment for the coronavirus infection.

Meadows also hit out at leftists and some of the media who seethed after the president briefly left the hospital on Sunday to greet supporters.

What are the details of a possible discharge?

Meadows told Fox News Monday morning that the president’s health has improved overnight and that Trump is set to go back to a “normal working schedule.”

“Spoke to the president this morning,” he said. “He continued to improve overnight and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule. [Trump] will meet with his doctors and nurses this morning to make further assessments of his progress.”

“We are still optimistic that he will be able to return to the White House later today, with his medical professionals making that determination later today,” he added.

Meadows lauded the expertise of the doctors and medical professionals at Walter Reed.

“His treatment has been remarkable,” Meadows said. “His strength has been incredible.”

Meadows added that Trump is “not only understanding what millions of Americans have had to face as they’ve come in contact with this disease, but more importantly, the fact that we need to continue work on therapeutics.”

The outlet added that Trump has received several doses of Remdisivir, an anti-viral drug, to combat the effects of the coronavirus.

What did he say about the outrage following Trump’s trip outside?

Meadows ridiculed critics on Monday by pointing out the obvious: “How do they think he got here?”

“We came here on Marine One, the U.S. Secret Service agent that is with him has been with him, and yet we took additional precautions with PPE and others to make sure they were protected,” Meadows explained Monday morning. “A number of folks are trying to make a big deal about that when I know myself and Secret Service details are with him everyday and want him to return to the White House as expeditiously as possible.”

As TheBlaze reported on Monday, many of Trump’s critics castigated the administration for what they said was the president putting people’s lives at risk by leaving the medical facility.

“I would hope that if any harm comes to those agents the attorney general of MD will indict Trump for reckless endangerment, assault (yes the virus he gives off count), etc.,” the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin said in a now-viral tweet.

She later added, “The GOP is a death cult. There is only one pro-life party and it’s not them.”

Despite the criticism, Trump’s temporary leave was approved.

“Appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE. The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do,” Judd Deere, deputy White House press secretary, said in a statement following the move.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Florida virus Fox & Friends Gov. ron desantis Intelwars

DeSantis blames Florida’s inflated COVID-19 positive tests on ‘testing industrial complex’: ‘Lot of money at stake here’

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis
says private “testing industrial complex” is responsible for inflating the count of positive COVID-19 tests across the state.

Florida and other states have experienced a large surge in confirmed coronavirus cases over the last several weeks, prompting areas to slow — or rescind — their reopening practices.

What are the details?

During a Thursday “Fox & Friends” interview, DeSantis argued that the state’s COVID-19 death toll is also inflated.

“There was a report in Orlando a week or so ago, where you had someone in a motorcycle accident [die], unfortunately,” he recalled. “But that was categorized as a COVID death, just because the person had previously tested positive.”

The motorcyclist in question — a man in his twenties — was
determined to be a COVID-19 death because he had previously tested positive for the virus.

“You can actually argue that it could have been the COVID-19 that caused him to crash,” one health official said of the man’s death at the time.

DeSantis isn’t satisfied with such reporting and classification, however.

“I think the public — when they see the fatality figures — you know, they want to know, ‘Who died because they caught COVID?'”

DeSantis admitted that it wasn’t the first time such a misclassification had been made and said that he wants to investigate just how “pervasive” that trend might be at this point in the pandemic.

The Republican governor also revealed the possibility that a “testing industrial complex” is behind the rise in positive COVID-19 cases across the state, especially in those who said they never took a test.

“There’s a testing industrial complex now,” he said. “There’s a lot of money at stake here, people cranking out these tests. There’s private companies involved.”

The governor also called for Florida residents to come forward if they believe they have been targeted with false results.

“We want to hold people accountable if they’re engaged in funny business like that,” he added.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University
estimate that there have been at least 389,868 confirmed cases of coronavirus across the state of Florida. At least 5,518 deaths have been attributed to the virus.

MSNBC’s Katy Tur under fire for tweeting and deleting: ‘Kim Jong Un is brain dead’

MSNBC’s Katy Tur apologized after tweeting that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is “brain dead” following a surgery.

CNN announced on Monday that Kim recently had a surgery and had suffered complications as a result.

What are the details?

To her 724,000+ Twitter followers, Tur wrote, “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is brain dead, according to two US officials. He recently had cardiac surgery and slipped into a coma, according to one US current and one former US official. @NBCNews confirms and adds to CNN scoop.”

Following apparent questions — and swift backlash — over the tweet, Tur deleted the tweet.

“I’ve deleted that last tweet out of an abundance of caution,” she admitted. “Waiting on more info. Apologies.”

At the time of this writing, Tur has not tweeted further on the alleged status of Kim Jong Un.

The North Korean leader has reportedly not been seen in public since April 11.

You can read more about Monday’s late-breaking story here and here.

What else?

On Monday night, CNN’s Jim Sciutto said, “I’m told by a U.S. official with direct knowledge that the U.S. is monitoring intelligence that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is in grave danger following a surgery.

“Now we should note that Kim, he recently missed the celebration of his grandfather Kim Il Sung’s birthday on April 15,” he added. “This raised speculation about his wellbeing, about his health.”

The Los Angeles Times later announced, “The Daily NK, a Seoul-based website that gathers information from informants inside the isolated nation, reported Tuesday that Kim underwent ‘a cardiovascular surgical procedure’ and was now mostly recovered.” The Times noted, however, that it was it was “impossible to immediately verify the report, which the Daily NK said was based on one person inside North Korea.”

On Tuesday, national security adviser Robert O’Brien appeared on Fox News and promised that the U.S. is “keeping a close eye” on the reports.

“We’re monitoring these reports very closely,” O’Brien said. “As you know, North Korea is a very closed society.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Fox & Friends Instagram Intelwars Karla marie millennials Social Media

Radio host goes viral for emotional, passionate plea to spring breakers ignoring social distancing recommendation: ‘Call your mom and dad’

KISS-FM Seattle’s Carla Marie says that millennials need to pay close attention to social distancing in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

What did she do?

Marie shared an emotional Instagram video earlier this week detailing how her mother’s open-heart surgery was postponed because of the deadly virus.

The radio host, who lives on the other side of the country from her New Jersey-area family, is unable to visit her parents during this time due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In the video, she begged for people to remain at home and keep themselves as healthy as possible in order to flatten the curve of the pandemic within the U.S.

She captioned the video, which has since gone viral, “I need you to be a good human right now. I’m going through the hardest thing of my life … not being able to be there for my family. How can you help? Stay home. Be human. Compassion is easy. It’s all we have right now.”

What did she say on Fox?

Marie told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” hosts, “So now, it’s way beyond coronavirus patients and getting the coronavirus. I mean, I’m sure there are people in their families who have cancer, who have heart problems, and you want your family to get the best treatment for whatever they have. It’s not just catching a virus that you think you are invincible from everyone.”

She added, “I think that [people not heeding warnings] need people in their lives to tell them how they are feeling and their stories. I have friends and family who, at first, weren’t thinking this was real either.”

“Call your mom and your dad because you can do that,” she advised. “I think that’s the problem: they aren’t connecting with their family right now.”

At the time of this writing, there are nearly 11,000 cases of coronavirus in the U.S., and 163 people in the U.S. have died from the deadly pandemic.

2020 democratic race 2020 presidential candidates 2nd Amend. Auto worker Detroit Fox & Friends gun confiscation gun control gun rights Intelwars Joe Biden watch

Michigan blue-collar worker says Joe Biden ‘went off the deep end’ in viral confrontation showing presidential candidate cursing at, threatening him

On the heels of Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden’s threatening cuss-out of a blue-collar worker at a Detroit auto plant Tuesday, Jerry Wayne told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that the former vice president “went off the deep end” with him — and doesn’t deserve to be in the White House if he can’t understand that he works for the American people.

What’s the background?

Biden was touring a Fiat Chrysler assembly plant under construction Tuesday and spoke to Wayne, who isn’t an auto worker but was working at the plant. The exchange was caught on video.

At one point Wayne told Biden, “You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns” — to which Biden replied, “You’re full of s**t.”

After Biden told Wayne he owns shotguns and supports the Second Amendment — though strangely saying, “You’re not allowed to own any weapon. I’m not taking your gun away at all …” — Wayne replied that Biden said he would take away guns in a “viral video” with former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.

“I did not say that … I did not say that!” Biden shot back, adding that the video and others like it “are simply a lie.”

Soon Biden was pointing his finger right in Wayne’s face, after which the blue-collar worker waved his hand in front of Biden’s finger and said, “This is not OK, all right?”

Then Biden really lost it: “Don’t tell me that, pal, or I’m going to go outside with you.”

“You’re working for me, man!” Wayne angrily replied.

“I’m not working for you,” Biden growled back, adding, “Don’t be such a horse’s ass.”

Here’s the clip. (Content warning: profanity)

By the way, MSNBC broadcast a selectively edited video of the unhinged interaction, as veteran reporter Andrea Mitchell said she was “paraphrasing” Biden’s “full of s**t” remark as “full of it.” GOP national spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington criticized the network for leaving out Biden’s expletives and threat and instead saying Biden was simply “mixing it up.”

The morning after

During his appearance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, Wayne said he had asked Biden how he expects votes from the “working man when a lot of us … bear arms, and we like to do that. And if he wants to give us work and take our guns, I don’t see how he’s going to get the same vote.” Then the fireworks began.

Wayne said Biden “could have easily said, ‘I’m not taking questions,’ and I would have very respectfully walked away. But he wanted to listen to my question, and I don’t think that he was ready for it.”

In an extended version of the interview as seen on Mediaite, Wayne added that Biden “doesn’t need to touch anybody’s weapon at all. What we need to do is we need to concentrate on teaching people how to respect firearms and how to use them, not take them away.”

“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy asked in the extended interview, “Were you surprised … that you asked a civil question, and Joe Biden just went off the deep end on you?”

“Yeah. I thought I was pretty articulate and respectful,” Wayne replied. “I didn’t try to raise any feathers. And he kind of just went off the deep end. I saw that he was digging a hole, and I just kind of let him talk for a while to dig a hole.”

Wayne also said he was put off by Biden’s “I don’t work for you” comment.

“He was the vice president; he wants to be the president now,” Wayne said in the extended interview, adding that “you work for the American people, and if you can’t understand that, then you don’t deserve to have a leg in this race.”

Anything else?

During the interview with Wayne, “Fox & Friends” replayed past video interviews with Biden — the first with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who asked, “To gun owners out there who say, ‘Well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns’?”

“Bingo,” Biden replied. “You’re right — if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is they should be illegal. Period. Look, the Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own.”

The second clip replayed was during a recent campaign rally, where Biden said Beto O’Rourke would be mobilized to “take care” of America’s gun situation — and O’Rourke already had infamously declared, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take away your AR-15s.”

And at the rally, Biden told O’Rourke onstage, “I wanna make something clear … you’re gonna take care of the gun problem with me. You’re gonna be the one who leads this effort. I’m counting on you.”

COMEDY Dan crenshaw Fox & Friends Intelwars Pete davidson SNL Videos

Rep. Dan Crenshaw fires back after Pete Davidson admits his ‘SNL’ apology to veteran lawmaker was forced

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (Texas) hit out at “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson’s recent admission that his apology to the conservative lawmaker was forced.

Davidson issued an apology to Crenshaw after making fun of the veteran’s eye patch during a 2018 segment on the long-running comedy sketch show, and the two later appeared on the show together in an apparent show of camaraderie.

The camaraderie was apparently false, though, on Davidson’s behalf because he recently admitted that he only issued an apology to Crenshaw because his hand was forced.

What are the details?

“Listen,” Crenshaw said during a Friday “Fox & Friends” appearance. “I can’t get out of Pete Davidson’s head. He’s been — he’s been thinking about me a lot for the past year as he builds this comedy routine apparently. I’m not so sure his jokes always land, but it is what it is.”

He continued, “It’s like our comedic careers are joined at the hip because he can’t stop thinking about me. It’s a little sad. We had a really good moment at that time in 2018. America liked it. The left and the right liked it. So, we don’t really want to ruin that.”

During Davidson’s new stand-up special, “Alive from New York,” Davidson revealed that he was forced to make the apology.

“So I made fun of this guy with an eyepatch and then, like, I kind of got forced to apologize,” Davidson said. “My roommate thought I should apologize so that I didn’t get shot in the face.”

Davidson continued, “People were like, ‘You hate America!’ And I’m like, ‘No, I just didn’t want to be incorrect about how he lost his f***ing eye. Is that a crime?!'”

He later added, “The only thing I did do, which I am guilty of — and I apologize for — is I did make that guy famous and a household name for no reason, right? I did what, like, Ariana Grande did for me, right? I sucked his d**k at ‘SNL.'”
