(Updated) Car stolen in broad daylight with 7-month-old baby inside. Police find car hours later — without the baby.

Update:

Police were able to locate the baby, who was identified as Jaylen Mojica, after issuing a community alert. He had been described as an “endangered missing person” in the alert but few other details were divulged.

Original story:

A Chicago mother was horrified to find that her car was stolen with her 7-month-old baby inside. Police later found the car without the baby miles away.

The alarming incident unfolded Monday in the Marquette Park neighborhood in Chicago.

The 30-year-old woman left the car and the baby boy unattended at about 12:46 p.m., with the car ignition on. She walked into a convenience store and when she walked back the car was gone.

The car was a silver Honda CR-V and was found abandoned hours later in a neighborhood about nine miles away.

The car was found near an alley and a small playground park.

A witness told
WBBM-TV that she heard the woman screaming after the abduction.

“I just heard a young lady hollering about somebody took her car with her baby in it,” the witness said. “And it’s really scary that you can’t leave your car and somebody just jumps right in.”

Police dogs are being used to help try to locate the missing baby.

Reporter Charlie De Mar of WBBM
noted that police had not activated an Amber Alert for the child.

The mother of the child is working with the police to find her baby. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 312-747-8380.

According to the
Polly Klaas Foundation, the vast majority of missing children cases are runaways who are eventually found or reunited with their families. A small proportion, about 3%, are cases where the child has been kidnapped by a family member or someone familiar to the child. Less than 1% of those cases are kidnappings by a complete stranger previously unknown to the child.

Here’s a local news report about the abduction:

Senate confirms Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court

The United States Senate has officially confirmed Judge Amy Coney Barrett as a U.S. Supreme Court justice in a 52-48 vote, despite pushback from Democrats who fought to stop the Republican-led upper chamber from moving forward with President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ahead of Election Day.

Every GOP senator voted for Barrett’s confirmation except Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), who joined Democrats in arguing that the nomination of a new justice should be made by whomever wins the presidential election on Nov. 3.

What are the details?

Ahead of the actual vote, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), declared from the floor that “today…will go down as one of the darkest days in the 231-year history of the United States Senate.”

He went on to warn Republicans, “You may win this vote… But you will never, ever, get your credibility back. And the next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited your right to tell us how to run that majority.”

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) gave a history of what has occurred in recent decades in the confirmation of justices, and explained to the chamber in his speech following Schumer’s: “The reason we were able to do what we did in 2016, 2018 and 2020 was because we had the majority.”

Vice President Mike Pence had originally been expected to preside over Barrett’s confirmation vote in the Senate, but those plans were changed after several of Pence’s close aides recently tested positive for COVID-19. As The Hill pointed out ahead of the vote, 52 Senate Republicans were “expected to vote for Barrett, which means the vice president” was not needed to break a 50-50 tie. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) served as Senate president during the proceedings.

The Associated Press reported that Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Constitutional Oath to Barrett, 48, before a crowd of about 200 on the South Lawn at the White House.

Fox News noted that “Thomas has long been considered one of the more conservative justices on the Court, along with Barrett’s mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia.”

Shortly after the vote occurred, the Supreme Court sent out a news release announcing that Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the Judicial Oath to Barrett in a private ceremony in a conference room in the court building on Tuesday, and that a formal ceremony will take place in the actual courtroom at a later date.

According to The New York Times, Justice Barrett “could start work” at the Supreme Court as early as Tuesday, once she has taken her oaths.

Roll Call reported that Barrett’s confirmation “boost[s] the long-running advantage for justices appointed by Republican presidents from 5-4 to 6-3, which [means] the liberal wing would have to pick up at least two votes from the conservative wing to find any victories in cases on ideologically divisive issues.”

Wilkow: Stop PAYING for virtue lectures from the Left

The Left has turned our once non-political sources of entertainment into a never ending barrage of virtue-signaling lectures. From Teen Vogue endorsing socialism to Oprah phone-banking for a Democrat voting organization, it seems no one can escape their grasp. But BlazeTV’s Andrew Wilkow argues that you do have a choice: Don’t fund what you don’t believe in. Look no further than the decline of the NBA. The free market can fix this.

Muslims around the world are boycotting France after President Macron refuses to condemn cartoons of Muhammed

Muslims around the world are calling for a boycott of products made in France after the president said he would affirm free speech rights of his citizens, including that of depictions of the Islamic religious figure Muhammed.

The clash in cultures came after Samuel Paty, a French teacher, was beheaded by a Muslim immigrant after he showed controversial cartoons of the Islamic figure to his students near Paris.

The killing sparked protests by French citizens defending free speech but also a boycott by Muslims who are demanding French President Emmanuel Macron denounce the cartoons.

Some took to social media to show support for the boycott of French products.

One restaurant in Kuwait reportedly invited customers to step on images of Macron to show their disrespect for him and the country of France.

Macron declared at a ceremony for the murdered teacher that France would not denounce the controversial cartoons despite the anger expressed by Muslims.

“He was killed because Islamists want our future,” Macron said. “They will never have it.”

Law enforcement officials took 15 people into custody over the murder of the teacher, and they have performed dozens of raids of suspected Islamist extremists in the country, according to the BBC. Investigators said that Paty had told Muslim students that they could leave the classroom if they felt that they would be offended by the cartoons.

On Monday, Secretary-General of the Muslim World League Mohammed al-Issa said that Muslims were not against free speech but against hatred.

“We are not against legitimate freedoms, but we are against employing those freedoms for material gain, undermining their value,” said al-Issa to Al Arabiya.

“We are also against the consequential spread of hatred and racism,” he added.

Al-Issa went on to say that insulting Muhammed should not be tolerated, even as free speech.

News video from Kuwait showed that grocery stores were clearing their shelves of French products in support of the worldwide boycott.

Here’s video of the French boycott in Kuwait:

Police investigating viral video showing a man pointing a gun at anti-Trump protesters in Washington state

Police are investigating a heated incident in Washington state during a pro-Trump protest and a counterprotest where a man pulled a gun after allegedly being assaulted.

Video of the altercation appeared on Tik Tok and quickly went viral. It was recorded at a pro-Trump demonstration where anti-Trump protesters showed up in the city of Woodinville.

The video shows a man in a Trump cap pointing his gun at protesters while yelling at them and then other Trump supporters drag him away.

Witnesses admit that the man was assaulted before they were able to record on their cellphones. They said that someone came up and splashed him with dirty water from a bucket, and then tossed the bucket at him.

“He threw like this bucket of dirty water on one of the Trump supporters,” Mandy Luttinen said to KING 5 News.

Luttinen said she immediately jumped in between the man and the other protesters, many of whom were teenagers.

“There wasn’t a lot of thinking. I’ve been in a couple tense situations and you do act more than you think,” she explained. “It was just like, don’t let the kids get hurt.”

A Trump supporter told KING 5 that he knew the man who pulled the gun and said that he was a military veteran who served in Afghanistan. He added that the counterprotesters were yelling at them, saying they were racists despite the fact that many of the supporters were not white.

“We don’t embrace acts of violence,” he said.

Police still investigating

Woodinville police are still trying to sort out exactly how things spiraled out of control.

“We’re not really sure of what’s happened at this point,” said Woodinville Police Chief Kathleen Larson.

“There are two sides to every story, and in this particular case, in this video, we don’t see what precipitated the man pulling out his firearm, and he was assaulted prior to that,” she added.

Here’s the video of the alarming incident:

Amy Coney Barrett sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas in White House ceremony

Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as the newest justice of the U.S. Supreme Court by its longest-serving member, Justice Clarence Thomas, on Monday night, less than two hours after she was confirmed to the high court by the U.S. Senate.

The Senate confirmed the nomination of Barrett by a vote of 52-48.

What are the details?

President Donald Trump praised his third successful nominee to the Supreme Court in a speech, telling his audience on the South Lawn of the White House that Barrett “is one of our nation’s most brilliant legal scholars, and she will make an outstanding justice on the highest court in our land.”

After thanking a number of Republican leaders who were influential in moving forward Barrett’s nomination, the president also acknowledged Barrett’s husband, Jesse, who was in attendance. Trump then recognized the Barretts’ seven children, who watched the ceremony from their home in Indiana, saying the kids had “become very, very popular in this nation.”

“I speak to everyone when I say that the Barrett family has captured America’s heart,” he added. “It is highly fitting that Justice Barrett fills the seat of a true pioneer for women, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

The president noted that Barrett, 48, is the fifth woman to serve on the Supreme Court, and the first mother of school-age children to be confirmed.

Justice Thomas administered the Constitutional Oath to Barrett before the crowd of 200 following the president’s speech. Chief Justice John Roberts is slated to administer the Judicial Oath to the newest associated justice on Tuesday, after which she will be able to begin her work in the lifetime position.

After being sworn in at the White House, Barrett took to the lectern, thanking the cheering audience, the president, and the Senate, saying, “I thank you for the confidence you have expressed in me, and I pledge to you and to the American people that I will discharge my duties to the very best of my ability.”

How did the Democrats respond?

Several congressional Democrats vowed reform and revenge immediately following Barrett’s confirmation, after the minority party in the Senate failed to stop Republicans from pressing forward with Trump’s latest nominee ahead of Election Day.

Far-left progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) led calls on Twitter to “expand the court.”

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) declared, “Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process — all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions. We won’t forget this.”

WATCH: Sen. Mazie Hirono votes ‘hell no!’ on Amy Coney Barrett nomination and storms off of Senate floor

Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii has been one of the most vocal Democratic opponents to the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and she manifested her fury on the Senate floor during the roll call vote on Monday.

Hirono registered her vote against the nomination by saying, “hell no!” and stomping off. Her vote was caught on video.

A clip of her petulant vote was circulated on social media:

Hirono was among the Democrats who
questioned whether Barrett could be fair in her Supreme Court decisions given that she is so devoted to her Catholic faith. Others accused Hirono of religious bigotry over the suggestion.

“Look, it wasn’t her religious views — it’s anybody’s views that they bring to their decision-making,” Hirono said last month about Barrett’s faith.

“So they keep telling us that none of the things they wrote or said yesterday should infringe on their decision, but how can we be assured that they can be objective?” she added. “Why should we say you get a lifetime appointment so that you can reflect your ideological agenda in your decision-making?”

Hirono reiterated her opposition to Barrett’s nomination through her Twitter account.

“Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a clear and present danger to the rights and protections [Ruth Bader Ginsburg] fought for. The American people are paying attention and voting,” she
tweeted.

Hirono is also among the critics of the Barrett nomination who are demanding that Democrats pack the Supreme Court with extra seats for liberal justices after the election as revenge against Republicans.

Despite Hirono’s opposition and that of the Democrats, Barrett’s nomination was
approved by Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Monday by a vote of 52 to 48.

The Associated Press reported that Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Constitutional Oath to Barrett before a crowd of about 200 on the South Lawn at the White House. She will be able to participate in the court Tuesday after taking the Judicial Oath administered by Chief Justice John Roberts in a private ceremony.

Here’s more about the vote to put Barrett on the Supreme Court:

Joe Scarborough compares Trump to Putin: ‘Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it’

MSNBC host and former Republican Joe Scarborough told his audience Monday morning that President Donald “Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it,” comparing the U.S. president to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

What are the details?

Scarborough made the comment during his criticism of Trump’s “60 Minutes” interview with CBS reporter Lesley Stahl, which aired the night before, hitting out at the president for criticizing Stahl after she began the sit-down by asking: “Are you ready for some tough questions?”

“How fascinating that Donald Trump says it’s, quote, inappropriate for Lesley Stahl to ask tough questions,” Scarborough said “It’s just, it’s really fascinating at this point to look how much that Donald Trump resembles an autocratic leader from eastern Europe, whether it’s Belarus or whether it’s Russia.

“Actually, though he kills journalists, Vladimir Putin on camera actually seems a little more willing to answer tough questions when they are asked of him,” Scarborough continued. “Donald Trump can’t even handle that.

“Of course, Donald Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it,” the MSNBC host said. “I think even his strongest supporters would admit Trump would do whatever he could get away with.”

The Daily Caller reported that Scarborough “made similar comments back in February, claiming ‘dictator’ Trump would ‘arrest every journalist he didn’t like’ if he could get away with it.”

Scarborough and his “Morning Joe” co-host and wife Mika Brzezinski interviewed Trump frequently on their show before he became president in 2016, but the MSNBC duo has since become fervent enemies of the president.

What about the 2015 interview?

During a 2015 interview on “Morning Joe,” then-candidate Trump was pressed by Scarborough to condemn Putin’s killing of journalists who do not agree with the Russian leader.

Scarborough, who previously served as a U.S. congressman for Florida, asked Trump what he thought about Putin giving him a compliment.

“When people call you brilliant, it’s always good, especially when the person heads up Russia,” Trump replied.

“Well, he’s also a person that kills journalists and political opponents and invades countries,” Scarborough said. “That would be a concern, would it not?”

“He’s running his country and at least he’s a leader, unlike what we have in this country,” Trump responded.

“But again, he kills journalists that don’t agree with him,” Scarborough said.

Trump argued back, “Well, I think our country does plenty of killing also, Joe. You know, there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world right now, Joe. A lot of killing going on and a lot of stupidity.”

Trump finally relented that he does condemn Putin’s killing of journalists and political opponents.

When asked about how America’s relationship with Russia might change under a Trump presidency, Trump said, “I’ve always felt fine about Putin. I think he is a strong leader, he’s a powerful leader, he’s represented his country the way — the country is being represented.”

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the “disgusting” media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl’s “60 Minutes” interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” that they’ve lost their own credibility — and now they can’t get it back.

“It’s disgusting. It’s stomach-turning,” Megyn said of the media’s coverage of the president. “But it’s just a continuation of what we’ve seen over the past couple of years. Their ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ has blinded them to what they’re doing to their own credibility. They can’t get it back. It’s too late. They’ve already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news.”

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden’s alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
