Christopher Ruddy, the chief executive of the Web and cable-TV outlet Newsmax, says there’s a good reason why he pledged a seven-figure donation to the Clinton Foundation. “I really like what he does,” says Ruddy, referring to Clinton Foundation name partner and former president Bill Clinton.

Ruddy and Clinton have come a long way, as explained in this New York Times piece by Jeremy W. Peters. Back in the 1990s, Ruddy was a well-known Clinton antagonist, as he explored the death of White House aide Vince Foster in the New York Post and later at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

A coming-together came years after Clinton left office. Ruddy tells the Erik Wemple Blog that Clinton is right up there with Theodore Roosevelt when it comes to distinguished post-presidencies. “I did notice that he was going around the world defending America, speaking up for America,” says Ruddy, noting, “He’s not Jimmy Carter. … He became essentially a goodwill ambassador for America.”

And the MO of the Clinton Foundation also appealed to Ruddy, a Reagan devotee. “They’re not looking for government handouts. They’re not looking for more foreign aid,” he says, citing the foundation’s work on alleviating poverty and fighting HIV/AIDS overseas

. When he first started giving to the foundation, Ruddy says he was asked whether he wanted to keep the donations private; he responded that it would be fine to make them public.

After news emerged of Ruddy’s latest gift to the foundation — $1 million over five years — Ruddy was amused at some of the coverage. A piece on FoxNews.com, for instance, was titled, “The strange philanthropy of Chris Ruddy: Conservative newsman pledges $1M to Clintons.” Huh, thought Ruddy, doesn’t Murdoch Inc. — owner of Fox News — also have some “strange” involvement with the Clintons, too? Right there on the list of high-rolling donors to the Clinton Foundation with Newsmax is none other than James Murdoch, co-chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox. “Incredibly ironic,” notes Ruddy.

In a phone call with the ex-president last week, Ruddy says he explained, “I’m proud of what you’re doing, and I don’t care what they say on Fox News.” Ruddy told the Wall Street Journal that the donation wasn’t an endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s likely presidential campaign.

Former President Donald Trump surprised supporters in Florida on Monday, driving by them in a black SUV.

Trump waved to people lining both sides of a road in West Palm Beach, as onlookers cheered and snapped pictures.

“We love Trump! We love Trump!” people shouted as the car that Trump was riding in moved slowly by. They later erupted in chants of “USA! USA!”

A number of pro-Trump and American flags were waving in the breeze.

The crowd was gathered to celebrate President’s Day.

Trump was driving from the Trump International Golf Club, where he was spotted playing golf.

The drive-by evoked memories of Jan. 20, when Trump was transported past supporters to his Mar-a-Lago resort after flying to Florida from Washington.

Since then, Trump has rarely appeared in public.

rump’s former and current advisers, though, have regularly appeared on TV stations and social media, saying he will be engaged to help Republicans flip the House of Representatives and Senate in 2022.

But some leading Republicans sided with Democrats against Trump in the second impeachment saga and argue he is no longer the head of the party.https://6183f9b75f0b370dbaec3af3b57b453c.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

House Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) voted to impeach Trump, along with nine other Republicans. And Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) delivered a scathing speech on the Senate floor over the weekend, blaming the former president for the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

“January 6th was a disgrace. American citizens attacked their own government. They use terrorism to try to stop a specific piece of domestic business they did not like. Fellow Americans beat and bloodied our own police. They stormed the center floor. They tried to hunt down the Speaker of the House. They built a gallows and chatted about murdering the vice president. They did this because they’d been fed wild, falsehoods by the most powerful man on earth because he was angry. He lost an election,” McConnell told colleagues.

McConnell and 42 other Republican senators voted to acquit Trump, in large part because they felt the trial was unconstitutional since he’s now a private citizen. But seven Republicans joined Democrats in calling him guilty of incitement, including former Republican presidential nominee Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah.).

Trump in a statement after the vote accused Democrats of fomenting riots and defaming law enforcement while pushing for censorship of people and viewpoints they oppose.

He also declared himself “a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.”

Trump teased a comeback, telling supporters: “We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.”

Biden Rescinds Emergency Order Used to Build Trump’s Border Wall

President Joe Biden has terminated the emergency order used by former President Donald Trump to justify construction of the wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

“I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted,” Biden said in a letter sent Thursday to the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Vice President Kamala Harris in her role as president of the Senate

“I have also announced that it shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall, and that I am directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to that end.”

Axios reported Trump had used the emergency order to divert billions of dollars in funds to build a wall on the southern border. It said the order was used after it became clear Congress was opposed to using additional funding for construction.

USA Today said that under the emergency declaration signed in February 2019, Trump was able to use $600 million from the U.S. Treasury Department and $6.1 billion from the U.S. Department of Defense for border wall construction.

The emergency proclamation was continued in February 2020, allowing Trump to divert an additional $3.8 billion from the Pentagon for the border wall construction.

Biden had announced he was going to rescind the emergency declaration on his first day in office.

The administration has also said that because of the pandemic, migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border seeking asylum will still be turned away.

“The vast majority of people will be turned away,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday.
