Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said during an interview with Axios that if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wins the presidential election next month, he should fill his cabinet with progressive Democrats and enact the policies that the far-left wing of the party wants.

“A president is only as successful as his collaboration is with Congress and we will have a cohort of progressives that are very clear about their objectives for wanting the implementation of, you know, Medicare For All and a Green New Deal and raising the minimum wage and not allowing for fracking,” Omar said.

Omar said that Biden should fill “all of the cabinet positions” with progressive Democrats and claimed that the American people really want the policies espoused by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

“We know at every single exit poll, you know, Medicare For All was 60%, 70%, 80% in some places throughout the primary,” she claimed. “And, you know, those were not only the places where Bernie was leading, they were places where Joe was leading, and so that should signal to Joe Biden that these people trusted me to lead, but these were the policies that they want me to lead on and, you know, act accordingly.”

TRANSCRIPT:

Alexi McCammond: There have been a number of down ballot Dems who are progressive, supported by the Justice Democrats, won their primaries, likely going to congress. How does that make you rethink kind of the power that you’ll have with the Biden administration if they win to enact on these things?

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): You know a president is only as successful as his collaboration is with Congress and we will have a cohort of progressives that are very clear about their objectives for wanting the implementation of, you know, Medicare For All and a Green New Deal and raising the minimum wage and not allowing for fracking.

McCammond: If Biden’s elected, are there any positions that you think a progressive Democrat should absolutely be in this spot in abide administration?

Omar: I would say all of the cabinet positions should be filmed by progressive Democrats. We know that the policies we advocate for are most popular with the the American people.

McCammond: If that’s the case, why do you think that Joe Biden’s the nominee if he doesn’t support all these policies?

Omar: I think sometimes there’s a disconnect really in the person that you might believe should lead and the policies that you might believe should be implemented. We know at every single exit poll, you know, Medicare For All was 60%, 70%, 80% in some places throughout the primary. And, you know, those were not only the places where Bernie was leading, they were places where Joe was leading, and so that should signal to Joe Biden that these people trusted me to lead, but these were the policies that they want me to lead on and, you know, act accordingly.

McCammond: One attack line that Republicans, including the president and the vice president have consistently used, is that Biden is and this is a quote, ‘a Trojan Horse of the radical Left.’ And the progressive leaders will actually be calling the shots. What do you think when you hear them say that?

Omar: I know that for them we’ve become sort of the boogeyman of the election but it’s because of two things: one it’s because we are not backing down in holding this administration and the Republicans accountable and calling their hypocrisy out but we also resonate with the challenges that everyday Americans are having.

Source: Daily Wire: ‘Act Accordingly’: Ilhan Omar Ramps Up Pressure On Biden To Enact Her Agenda If Elected

Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler told residents in his condo building on Monday that he intends to move out of the facility after it was attacked by far-left extremists, saying that he was doing so for their safety.

The Oregonian reported that Wheeler told residents that it would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace” that he finds a new place to live.

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” the email said. “It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”

The local paper reported that Wheeler bought a two-bedroom condo in the 114 unit building in 2017 for $840,000.

The Portland Police Department released the following statement following the attacks on the building:

A mass gathering devolved into a riot after individuals broke windows, burglarized a business, and lit a fire in an occupied apartment building.

A group began by gathering in the North Park Blocks near Northwest Park Avenue and Northwest Couch Street. About 10:00p.m., a march began in the street to the area of Northwest 10th Avenue and Northwest Glisan Street. Some in the crowd began lighting off what appeared to be illegal commercial-grade fireworks. A fire was lit in a garbage can in the street. Some windows were broken and walls were defaced with graffiti (photo). In an attempt to deescalate, officers stayed out of sight and monitored the situation from a distance. However, the vandalism and burning continued. People were seen burglarizing a business, taking furniture out, and throwing it on the fires in the street (photo).

At 11:05p.m., due to the ongoing criminal behavior, the incident was declared an unlawful assembly and all persons were told over loudspeaker to immediately leave the area by traveling to the west. Failure to adhere to this order may subject them to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons.

About 2 minutes later, officers observed someone throw burning material through a broken window into a ground-level business in a large, occupied apartment building. Out of concern that the fire could spread, causing an extreme life safety concern, the incident was declared a riot.

Arson Investigators are looking for the suspect who started the fire.

Over loudspeaker, participants in the gathering were told that the area was closed to all persons, including media and legal observers, to allow firefighters to respond and extinguish the fires. Few, if any, of the persons complied.

Officers began to move the crowd. Immediately officers reported rocks and paint balloons being thrown at them. Arrests were made. As the crowd moved away, some attempted to stack debris in the road to create barricades. Officers cleared them. At least one more dumpster was lit on fire.

A far-left alleged Black Lives Matter leader advocated for killing law enforcement officials during a Black Lives Matter event in Washington, D.C., on Saturday night, saying that he was ready to put them in the ground and that he wanted to go after elected officials in the federal government.

“I’m at a point where I’m ready to put these police in the f***ing grave,” the man said, according to video that was posted online from the event. “I’m at the point where, I want to burn the White House down. I want to take it to the senators. I want to take it to the Congress.”

“I want to take the fight to them and at the end of the day, if they won’t hear us, we burn them the f**k down,” he continued. “I’m one that talk real s**t. I talk it in New York and I talk it in D.C. The same way I f**k police up in New York, I f**k cops up in here in D.C. The same way I bust police in the head in New York, I bust police in the head in D.C.”

“Now, it’s a lot of people and I’m going to be honest, it’s a lot of people that’s on this front line and one of the things that I always say, ‘don’t get on this f***ing front line if you ain’t gonna f***ing fight,’” he concluded. “Don’t get on this front line if you ain’t gonna take no hit. Don’t get on this front line when the police f***ing push up, you push back. If you gonna be on this front line, and them racist a*s, nasty a*s, punk a*s, f***ing police is pushing up, you push the f**k up.”

Maximo Alvarez, an immigrant who escaped communist Cuba, warned Americans during the Republican National Convention on Monday night that he sees in the Democratic Party many of the things he saw in Cuba.

“I know all about the past. I’ll never forget my own. My family has fled totalitarianism and communism. More than once. First my dad from Spain, then from Cuba,” Alvarez said. “I’m speaking to you today because my family is done abandoning what we’ve rightfully earned. There is no place to hide.”

“I’m speaking to you today because I’ve seen people like this before. I’ve seen movements like this before. I’ve seen ideas like this before and I’m here to tell you, we cannot let them take over our country,” he said. “I heard the promises of Fidel Castro. And I can never forget all those who grew up around me, who looked like me, who could have been me, who suffered and starved and died because they believed those empty promises. They swallowed the communist poison pill.”

“Those false promises — spread the wealth, free education, free healthcare, defund the police, trust a socialist state more than your family and community — they don’t sound radical to my ears. They sound familiar,” he said. “When Fidel Castro was asked if he was a communist, he said he was a Roman Catholic. He knew he had to hide the truth.”

“But the country I was born in is gone – destroyed. When I watch the news in Seattle and Chicago and Portland, in other cities, when I see history being rewritten, when I hear the promises, I hear echoes of a former life I never wanted to hear again. I see shadows I thought I had outrun,” he said. “I may be Cuban-born, but I am 100% American. This is the greatest country in the world. I said this before. If I gave away everything I have today, it would not equal 1% of what I was given when I came to this great country of ours: The gift of freedom.”

“Right now it is up to us to decide our fate and to choose freedom over oppression,” he concluded. “President Trump is fighting the forces of anarchy and communism. And I know he will continue to do just that. And what about his opponent? And the rest of the DC swamp? I have no doubt they will hand the country over to those dangerous forces. … And here is what I’ve decided. My decision is very easy. I choose President Trump because I choose America.”

TRANSCRIPT:

MAXIMO ALVAREZ: I live in Miami, Florida, not far from the Strait of Florida, which is just a 90-mile wide blue strip on a map for me. It divides freedom from fear. It divides the past from the future.

I know all about the past. I’ll never forget my own. My family has fled totalitarianism and communism. More than once. First my dad from Spain, then from Cuba.

But my family is done leaving. By the grace of God, I have lived the American dream, the greatest blessing I’ve ever had. My dad, who only had a sixth-grade education told me, “Don’t lose this place. You’ll never be as lucky as me.”

I’m speaking to you today because my family is done abandoning what we’ve rightfully earned. There is no place to hide.

I’m speaking to you today because President Trump may not always be politically correct. He is, in fact, a successful businessman, not your average career politicians. Our president is just another family man, a friend, and most importantly, our elected commander-in-chief who puts America first.

Keep in mind, the other guy running for president is mostly concerned about power. Yes. Yes, power for them, but not for the benefit of all other Americans.

I’m speaking to you today because I’ve seen people like this before. I’ve seen movements like this before. I’ve seen ideas like this before and I’m here to tell you, we cannot let them take over our country.

I heard the promises of Fidel Castro. And I can never forget all those who grew up around me, who looked like me, who could have been me, who suffered and starved and died because they believed those empty promises. They swallowed the communist poison pill.

If you have a chance, go to Freedom Tower in Miami. Stop to listen and you can still hear the sounds of those broken those promises being broken. It is the sound of waves in the ocean, carrying families clinging to pieces of wood, families with children who can’t swim, but willing to risk everything to reach this blessed land. It is the sound of tears hitting the paper of an application to become an American citizen. Most heard unlike the promises, but soon after they experienced the reality. Look at them. Listen to them. Learn the truth.

Those false promises — spread the wealth, free education, free healthcare, defund the police, trust a socialist state more than your family and community — they don’t sound radical to my ears. They sound familiar.

When Fidel Castro was asked if he was a communist, he said he was a Roman Catholic. He knew he had to hide the truth.

But the country I was born in is gone – destroyed. When I watch the news in Seattle and Chicago and Portland, in other cities, when I see history being rewritten, when I hear the promises, I hear echoes of a former life I never wanted to hear again. I see shadows I thought I had outrun.

My parents only wanted one person to decide my fate: me. Not some party member, not some government official, not some bureaucrat. In America, I would decide my own future.

I am so grateful to America, the place where I was able to build my American dream through hard work and determination. President Trump knows that the American story was written by people just like you and I, who love our country and take risks to build a future for our families and neighbors.

I may be Cuban-born, but I am 100% American. This is the greatest country in the world. I said this before. I gave away everything I have today, it would not equal 1% of what I was given when I came to this great country of ours: The gift of Freedom.

Right now it is up to us to decide our fate and to choose freedom over oppression.

President Trump is fighting the forces of anarchy and communism. And I know he will continue to do just that. And what about his opponent? And the rest of the DC swamp? I have no doubt they will hand the country over to those dangerous forces.

You and I will decide.

And here is what I’ve decided. My decision is very easy. I choose President Trump because I choose America.

A man who appeared to be a police officer was knocked out during a Black Lives Matter riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, that broke out late on Sunday night in response to black man being shot by authorities earlier in the day.

Journalist Andy Ngo, who recently testified in front of the U.S. Senate on antifa, posted a video on Twitter of the alleged incident.

In the video, law enforcement officials standing near the front of the car begin moving toward the rear of the car when an object hit one of the officers and appeared to knock him out, causing him to instantly hit the ground.

Someone yelling in the background said, “he just got bricked.”

WATCH:

“Shouts of ‘Officer down!’ were heard on the police scanner,” The Journal Times reported. “Hundreds of demonstrators have taken to the streets in what some are calling riots in Kenosha. Rocks and bricks have been thrown, and at least one molotov cocktail being thrown has been reported, as is property damage. One police vehicle was reportedly ‘stomped’ and then later towed away. Scanner reports also indicate that an armored Bearcat vehicle was damaged by protesters.”

Journalist Drew Hernandez was on the ground and recorded numerous videos of the night’s violence, including numerous businesses being destroyed and cars being torched.

Hernandez repeatedly identified those involved as being Black Lives Matter activists.

Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers released a statement shortly after the incident, criticizing law enforcement officials while at the same time admitting that officials did “not have all of the details yet.”

“Tonight, Jacob Blake was shot in the back multiple times, in broad daylight, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Kathy and I join his family, friends, and neighbors in hoping earnestly that he will not succumb to his injuries,” Evers said in a statement. “While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country.”

“And we stand against excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black Wisconsinites,” Evers continued. “I have said all along that although we must offer our empathy, equally important is our action. In the coming days, we will demand just that of elected officials in our state who have failed to recognize the racism in our state and our country for far too long.”

Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, snapped on Wednesday when she was asked during an interview whether it was okay for President Donald Trump to bring up her husband’s cognitive abilities.

“The president’s campaign this week released an ad just really attacking your husband’s cognitive abilities, suggesting that he’s lost a step or two in the last few years,” NBC News host Savannah Guthrie said. “As far as you’re concerned, is that a fair attack? Is that something that should be debated as part of the campaign?”

“No. No. It’s ridiculous,” Jill Biden responded. “I mean Joe’s on the phone every single minute of the day talking to governors who are calling him and Nancy Pelosi. He’s on the Zoom. He’s doing fundraisers. He’s doing briefings. I mean he doesn’t stop from 9 in the morning till 11 at night. So, that, you know, that’s ridiculous.”

WATCH:

Jill Biden appeared on Fox News earlier this month where she was asked about the attacks from the president about Biden’s cognitive abilities.

“One of the things President Trump and his campaign have questioned is your husband’s cognitive abilities,” host Dana Perino said. Perino then played a clip of a recent interview that President Donald Trump gave to Fox News anchor where he said, “Biden can’t put two sentences together.”

“I say he’s not competent to be president,” Trump continued. “To be president you have to be sharp and tough and so many other things. He doesn’t even come out of his basement.”

When asked about Trump’s comments, Jill Biden responded, “You know, Joe is anything but that characterization. You know we’ve been campaigning; we’ve been listening to the experts, the scientists, and the doctors, and they have told us stay home and be safe, and I think Donald Trump is really about Joe’s age right? I think there’s like two or three years difference.”

The Daily Wire previously reported:

It’s worth noting that numerous Democrats, progressives, and left-wing publications have also questioned Biden’s mental fitness for office. Biden, who said a couple of months ago that he was ‘constantly tested’ for cognitive decline, walked those claims back last week, denying that he had been tested for cognitive decline and saying, ‘Why the hell would I take a test?’”

The ad was one of just several new ads from the campaign this week that attacked Biden over a myriad of different issues ranging from his fitness for office to his political stances to remarks that many deemed as racist.

Biden, 77, officially wrapped up the Democratic nomination for president last night at the Democratic National Convention.

“Thank you very, very much from the bottom of my heart. Thank you all. It means the world to me and my family, and I’ll see you on Thursday,” Biden said. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Attorney General William Barr told Fox News during an interview Sunday that Antifa are “Bolsheviks,” their tactics are “fascistic,” and that they are being aided by the mainstream media, which “doesn’t take footage of what’s happening.”

Levin read a report on Antifa that described the far-left extremist group as a “highly networked, well-funded” organization that “has a global presence.”

“It is a flat organizational structure with dozens and possibly hundreds of local groups — and by the way, the oldest group is in Portland,” Levin continued. “They say, Antifa’s stated long-term objective, both in America and abroad — and it got its birth in Europe — England, then Germany, then the United States — is to establish a communist world order. And by the way, this information is put out, it’s not like we’re conspiracy theorists and so forth. In the United States, Antifa’s immediate aim is to bring about the demise of the Trump administration.”

Levin also noted that one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter says that their organization’s goals is to bring down President Donald Trump.

“Well, I think they would be – you know, generally for bringing down any administration,” Barr responded. “They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks, their tactics are fascistic. And your description of them is consistent with what I’ve seen.”

Barr noted that it was the political Left that has “shredded the norms of our system” in an effort “to do what they can to drive him from office or to debilitate his administration.”

“And I think it’s because of the desire for power, that the left wants power because that is essentially their state of grace and their secular religion,” Barr continued. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us. And that’s what turns them on. And it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory, and it outrages them.”

Barr later said that what Antifa is doing is “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare” and that they operate by “shielding themselves, or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity.”

“And they go in to the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves, that’s where they swim,” Barr continued. “And what they do is, they high-jack these demonstrations and they provoke violence and they have various tiers of people from the sort of top provocateurs, down through people who are their minions and sort of run the violent missions.”

Barr noted that Antifa’s acts of extremist violence are “highly organized at these demonstrations” and that “the media doesn’t take footage of what’s happening.”

WATCH:

TRANSCRIPT PROVIDED VIA FOX NEWS:

FOX NEWS HOST MARK LEVIN: Let me read something to you. Gatestone Institute international policy about Antifa. I don’t think people really understand Antifa. And they say, empirical and anecdotal evidence shows that Antifa is, in fact, highly networked, well-funded and has a global presence. It is a flat organizational structure with dozens and possibly hundreds of local groups –and by the way, the oldest group is in Portland.

They say, Antifa’s stated long-term objective, both in America and abroad — and it got its birth in Europe – England, then Germany, then the United States — is to establish a communist world order — and by the way, this information is put out, it’s not like we’re conspiracy theorists and so forth — in the United States, Antifa’s immediate aim is to bring about the demise of the Trump administration.

It’s an attack on capitalism, they say they’re attacking fascism when they’re Marxist fascists — such thing.

To bring down the Trump administration. It’s interesting that one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter said that one of her focuses is to bring down the Trump administration.

What is it about the Trump administration that stands in their way?

ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR: Well, I think they would be – you know, generally for bringing down any administration. They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks, their tactics are fascistic. And your description of them is consistent with what I’ve seen.

With the Trump administration, you know, a lot of that has been the demonization of the Trump administration from day one. I went back and I watched his victory speech after election night.

People should go back and look at it. It was very measured, it was a very statesman-like speech. He offered the olive branch, he praised Hillary Clinton, thanked her for all her service to the country, talked about working together to make things better for the American people.

That was the day he won, and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance. They were trying to impeach him from day one. They have done everything they can. They’ve shredded the norms of our system to do what they can to drive him from office or to debilitate his administration.

And I think it’s because of the desire for power, that the left wants power because that is essentially their state of grace and their secular religion. They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us. And that’s what turns them on. And it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory, and it outrages them.

LEVIN: You know, this document – this research they talk about the roots of Antifa and the Baader-Meinhof Gang in Germany and other really violent, radical organizations in the United States similar to the Black Panthers, similar to the Weather Underground, except they’re more networked, they’re better organized, they seem to have more ammunition of sorts to use against police officers and so forth.

And apparently they get a lot of their funding online. I have to believe that our agencies and so forth are really trying to construct some kind of scenario about what we’re dealing with and how to undo this. Am I close?

BARR: It’s a form of sort of – it’s a new form of urban guerrilla warfare. Mao – Mao Tse Tung used to speak about the guerrilla being like fish swimming in the ocean the way the guerrilla moves through the people. The guerrilla hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean.

And what they do is, they are essentially shielding themselves, or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity. And they go in to the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves, that’s where they swim.

And what they do is, they high-jack these demonstrations and they provoke violence and they have various tiers of people from the sort of top provocateurs, down through people who are their minions and sort of run the violent missions.

But it’s a difficult phenomenon to deal with. They’re highly organized at these demonstrations. And these tactics that they use are designed – and the way the media responds to them, of course — the media doesn’t take footage of what’s happening. They don’t take the footage of the rocks being thrown.

A black man erupted a group of Black Lives Matter activists, many of whom were white, for blocking a road in Austin, Texas, on Saturday, saying that they were obstructing his ability to go to work so he could provide for his family.

“Hey look, I understand the [inaudible], I appreciate it, but I got to go to work, I’m black,” the man said. “I got to go to work. I got bills. I got kids. Get the f*** out my way. I’m about to air this b***h out. I got to go to work.”

Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong tweeted out a video of the incident, writing, “A black man got out of his car in Austin to scold Black Lives Matter protesters for blocking the roads and preventing him from going to work and feeding his kids.”

WATCH:

The incident happened as leftists were out on the streets on Saturday night in Austin, which is widely considered to be the most liberal city in Texas.

At the start of the month, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) announced that it had obtained arrest warrants for six individuals that were wanted for riot-related crimes stemming from violent riots that occurred at the Texas State Capitol in the days immediately following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Those facing charges include:

  • Syed Imran Ali, 24, of Spring, Texas, was arrested on July 21 for misdemeanor riot for pushing into a restricted area on Capitol grounds during a protest and refusing to leave after repeated requests from law enforcement. Ali was arrested without incident during a traffic stop and booked into the Harris County Jail. In addition to the riot charge, Ali was previously arrested for criminal trespass stemming from the riots.
  • Cassidy Julia Nordstrom, 26, of Austin, Texas, was arrested on July 23 for two misdemeanor counts, one for riot and another for obstruction of a roadway for throwing water bottles at troopers and illegally blocking Interstate 35. Nordstrom was booked into the Travis County Jail.
  • Gabriel Brett Krug, 22, of Temple, Texas, was arrested on July 24 by the Temple Police Department for one count each of felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor riot for damaging DPS property on Capitol grounds and at the Governor’s Mansion during the protest. He was booked into the Bell County Jail.
    Bryan Becerril, 17, of Pflugerville, Texas, was arrested on July 24 for one misdemeanor count each of criminal mischief and participating in a riot in connection with vandalizing an unmarked DPS patrol vehicle at the Texas State Capitol. He was booked into the Travis County Jail.
  • Nickia Kasha Hunt, 25, of Austin, Texas, was arrested on July 25 for one misdemeanor count each of criminal mischief and participating in a riot in connection with damaging DPS property at the Texas State Capitol and at the Governor’s Mansion. Hunt was booked into the Travis County Jail.
  • Jordan Chance Teal, 18, of Austin, turned himself in on July 29 after an arrest warrant was obtained for one felony count of assault on a public servant in connection with a riot during which a DPS Ttooper was injured. Teal was booked into the Travis County Jail.

Jon Voight has a message for the American people — “Donald Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

The Academy Award-winning actor and star of Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” posted his message as a video on Twitter Friday night. In it, Voight urges Americans not to be “fooled by the political left.” America, he states, is “witnessing triumph” and is “stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct.”

This is not the first time Voight has released a message to the American people from his Twitter account. In April, he offered a brief address on Twitter in support of Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who he says “we need very much at this time when our president is being attacked with lies and slanders from the media.”

Voight was an early and outspoken supporter of candidate Donald Trump and has been one of the president’s most ardent defenders in Hollywood. He spoke several times at various events during Mr. Trump’s inauguration, including during the inauguration concert, during which he declared, “God answered our prayers.”

Voight, one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, is currently working alongside Dennis Quaid on a drama on Ronald Reagan, which follows the actor-turned-president from “his childhood to his time in the oval office.” Voight also recently played Justice Warren E. Burger in the film “Roe v. Wade” (in post-production), which tells the story of the “national battle in this untold conspiracy that led to the most famous and controversial court case in history.”

Along with his roles in several television series over his decades-long career, Voight has starred in major films from a wide range of genres, including “Catch-22” (1970), “Deliverance” (1972), “Heat” (1995), “Mission Impossible” (1996), “Transformers” (2007) and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (2016). Voight was nominated for Academy Awards for best actor in a leading role for “Midnight Cowboy” (1969) and “Runaway Train” (1985) and best actor in a supporting role for “Ali” (2001). In 1979, he won the Oscar for best actor in a leading role for “Coming Home” (1978). He’s also won several Golden Globes, including two for his role as Mickey Donovan.
