WATCH: Fox & Friends celebrates signing of new Texas anti-LGBT law by eating and defending Chick-fil-A

Published

on

The “Fox & Friends” crew celebrated Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the anti-LGBT “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law by eating and praising the chicken fast food and defending the Christian retailer by misrepresenting opposition to the bill and to the company.

The “Save Chick-fil-A” law now makes it illegal in Texas for the government to take “adverse action” against anyone or any entity for their “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction, including beliefs or convictions regarding marriage.”

It was created in response to the San Antonio city council barring Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in its airport, based on the company’s multi-million dollar support of anti-LGBT organizations, including an anti-gay hate group.

But that’s not the story “Fox & Friends” told its viewers Wednesday morning.

“The area lawmakers said no” to Chick-fil-A opening in the San Antonio airport, co-host Ainsley Earhardt said, “because there’s some controversy with this restaurant, what their beliefs are on LGBT, so they voted no.”

(It’s not “LGBT.” It’s “LGBT people.”)

And the issue is not the company’s beliefs, but their massive multi-million dollar financial support of anti-LGBT organizations that discriminate against or work to harm LGBT people.

“Even if you disagree with the restaurant’s politics it doesn’t mean I’m necessarily not going to like their food,” Earhardt added as she began to eat the Chick-fil-A from the table.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade was more to the point.

“Every time you try to stop Chick-fil-A, you help Chick-fil-A.”

US National Security Advisor John Bolton on Tuesday described as "deafening" Iran's apparent silence on an offer to negotiate with Washington.

"The president has held the door open to real negotiations," Bolton told journalists in Jerusalem.

"In response, Iran's silence has been deafening," he added.

Bolton is in Jerusalem for what Israel described as unprecedented talks with his Russian and Israeli counterparts, along with meeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Speaking alongside the US advisor, Netanyahu said there was "a wider basis for cooperation between the three of us than many believe."

Iran air defense missiles must be taken seriously: experts

Published

on

The shooting down last week of a sophisticated US drone by an Iranian missile demonstrates that Tehran's air defence capabilities can pose a challenge to US air superiority, experts say.

The Global Hawk, an advanced US navy surveillance drone, was flying at high altitude -- it can reach 60,000 feet (18 kilometers) -- early Friday local time when it was struck by a ground-to-air missile by Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.

"The shooting down of the drone shows Iran is revealing a capability and choosing to message it to the United States," said Becca Wasser, an analyst at Rand Corp.

"The fact that Iran was able to shoot down the drone demonstrates that they have developed or purchased fairly significant capabilities and are skilled at employing these systems."

Trump considering withdrawal from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.

So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
