Vetted Afghans? Female Soldier Allegedly Assaulted by Numerous Male Refugees at Fort Bliss; Situation Becoming ‘Dire’ at U.S. Airbase; GOP Senators Press Biden on Afghan ‘Child Brides’

By National Review. The FBI has launched an investigation into the alleged assault of a female soldier perpetrated by a group of male Afghan refugees being lodged at a New Mexico military complex.

The agency is pursuing a tip originating from the Fort Bliss Afghan refugee housing complex in New Mexico that a female service member, whose identity has not been revealed, was attacked on September 19 by a “small group of male evacuees,” Fox News first reported following receipt of confirmation from the FBI. . .

“We can confirm a female service member supporting Operation Allies Welcome reported being assaulted on Sept. 19 by a small group of male evacuees at the Doña Ana Complex in New Mexico,” the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss Public Affairs wrote in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We take the allegation seriously and appropriately referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The safety and well-being of our service members, as well as all of those on our installations, is paramount. . .

In the wake of the botched U.S. military withdrawal and evacuation from Afghanistan, some Republican lawmakers have warned of the dangers of admitting thousands of Afghan refugees into the country for safe haven without proper vetting procedures. Some immigration scholars have contended that the extremely rushed and haphazard circumstances surrounding the pullout made it more difficult to conduct thorough screening of evacuees. Potentially, individuals extracted from Kabul who carry questionable backgrounds or even criminal records could still be resettled in the U.S., they’ve claimed.

Situation Becoming ‘Dire’ at U.S. Airbase Housing Approximately 2,000 Pregnant Afghan Refugees

By CNN. The task of accommodating 10,000 Afghan refugees, including approximately 2,000 pregnant women, is putting facilities at Ramstein airbase in Germany under tremendous strain as nighttime temperatures drop toward freezing and what was meant to be a 10-day temporary stay is stretching into weeks, with one US source familiar with the situation describing it as becoming “dire.”

Already 22 babies have been born to Afghan mothers at Ramstein, and that number will rise very soon with roughly two thirds of the 3,000 women being housed there pregnant, requiring the time and effort of medical personnel from Ramstein and other bases, two US sources familiar with the situation at the base told CNN.

Even though it’s one of the largest US bases in Europe, Ramstein was never designed to handle such a large transient population especially when there are better equipped and larger facilities in the US.

Cruz, GOP Senators Press Biden on Afghan ‘Child Brides’ Among Refugees

By Fox News. Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas led a letter with three of his GOP Senate colleagues pressing President Biden on “child brides” reportedly found among Afghan refugees.

Cruz, alongside fellow Republican senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, demanded answers from the president on the reports that “child brides” had evacuated from Afghanistan to the U.S.

“We write regarding credible reports that your administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan facilitated the transport and trafficking of child brides and other Afghan girls subject to sexual abuse by Afghan men,” the senators began the letter, exclusively obtained by Fox News.

“We are deeply concerned that your withdrawal has imported an acute human rights crisis to our country, in part because you and your administration appear to have been wholly unprepared for the scope and nature of the operation,” they added.

Citing multiple news reports on the matter, the senators pointed out that Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that “there have been cases where administration officials have witnessed and separated over concerns related to such abuse and trafficking.” (Read more from “Cruz, GOP Senators Press Biden on Afghan ‘Child Brides’ Among Refugees” HERE)

Cuomo Bro Sex-Pest Mess: Chris Allegedly Grabbed Ex-Boss’ Butt at 2005 Party

A former ABC executive producer has accused Chris Cuomo of sexually harassing her at a 2005 work party after he grabbed her butt in front of her husband and co-workers — and he later called it a “hearty greeting.”

Shelley Ross, a veteran TV journalist, detailed the incident at an Upper West Side bar in a New York Times op-ed Friday.

She said Cuomo sent an email in the aftermath telling her he was “ashamed” — but quickly tried to show his actions were different from an actor accused of doing the same to a stranger on the street.

Ross said she was working as an executive producer of an ABC entertainment program at the time, but had been Cuomo’s boss on ABC’s “Primetime Live” just prior.

“I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock,” she said.

Dad Brutally Beats Pastor Accused of Inappropriately Touching Son at Bus Stop

A father in Oklahoma City tackled a local pastor who was seen inappropriately touching his son at a bus stop, leaving the suspect with a cracked skull and a bloody mugshot.

“There’s hardly any words that are camera appropriate,” witness Lisa Ward said of the incident. “It’s just sickening.”

Oklahoma City Police arrested the suspect, Michael Coghill, on Wednesday, after he was recorded on camera touching a nine-year-old boy at a bus stop and was confronted by the boy’s father, according to News9. The police department, however, could not confirm to Fox News that the boy’s father was the one to confront the suspect due to the Open Records Act.

Local residents said that Coghill is a local pastor in the area.

The boy told police that Coghill would often jog near the bus stop and had stopped by the area on more than one occasion, according to the police report obtained by Fox News.

The boy said Coghill had visited the bus stop on Monday and touched him in a way that made him uncomfortable. The boy also told his parents about the incident on Monday, and the father accompanied the boy to the bus stop on Wednesday, according to local reports.

Chaos erupted on the set of “The View” on Friday after co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro tested positive for COVID-19 mid-show.

Co-host Joy Behar was just beginning to introduce Vice President Kamala Harris to the show when producers yanked Hostin and Navarro from the stage, a report from the Daily Beast says. . .

An off-camera voice could be heard asking the two to “step off for a second.”

The two left the stage while a confused-looking Behar then asked the off-camera producers if she could continue introducing Harris when one person shouted “yes.”

She began, but another off-camera voice shouted “no!” (Read more from “Chaos Breaks Out Live During ‘The View’ as Co-Hosts Test Positive for COVID-10 Mid-Show — With VP Kamala Harris Backstage” HERE)

Joe Biden Tells Indian PM To Ignore U.S. Press; ’Indian Press Is Much Better Behaved Than the American Press

President Joe Biden continued his conflict with American reporters Friday, urging Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to take questions from them during a meeting in the Oval Office.

“I think, with your permission, you could not answer questions because they won’t ask any questions on point,” Biden told Modi, referring to the American press.

The president also criticized White House reporters for their behavior in the Oval Office.

“The Indian press is much better behaved than the American press,” Biden said. “I gotta watch out; they’ll knock one of those down.”

The White House did not include Biden’s comments in the official transcript of his remarks. (Read more from “Joe Biden Tells Indian PM To Ignore U.S. Press; ’Indian Press Is Much Better Behaved Than the American Press” HERE)

Report on Poll: Majority Thinks Biden ‘Is Kind of an Idiot’

A new poll has come out with the result that only 43% of the respondents believe Joe Biden is mentally sharp, prompting a news media outlet to headline its report: “Majority now believe that Joe Biden is kind of an idiot: Poll.”

It is Pew Research that documented assessments of Biden’s personal traits, warning they “have become less positive.”

“While majorities say he stands up for what he believes in (60%) and cares about the needs of ordinary people (54%), larger shares described Biden in these terms six months ago (66% and 62%, respectively,” the poll analysis noted.

Further, and significantly, it continued, “Biden receives his least positive assessments for being mentally sharp. Currently, 43% say this describes Biden very or fairly well, an 11-point decline since March.”

In fact, 56% of the respondents said that describes him not well, including 35% who say “not at all well.” (Read more from “Report on Poll: Majority Thinks Biden ‘Is Kind of an Idiot'” HERE)

Taiwan Deploys ‘Anti-Aircraft Missiles’ Against Chinese Pla Incursion

C on Thursday, prompting the island to respond by “scrambling fighter jets” and “tracking the aircraft with land-based anti-aircraft missiles,” Taiwan News reported.

In the first of two incursions Thursday afternoon, 19 Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) aircraft entered the southwestern corner of Taiwan’s ADIZ at about 4:30 pm local time, Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) confirmed.

The first deployment of PLAAF aircraft included “12 Shenyang J-16 fighter jets, two Shaanxi Y-8 anti-submarine warfare (Y-8 ASW) planes, two Xian H-6 bombers, one Shaanxi Y-8 electronic warfare aircraft (Y-8 EW), and two Shenyang J-11 fighter jets,” according to the MND.

About three hours later at 7:15 pm local time, the MND announced that five additional Chinese PLAAF aircraft penetrated the same southwest corner of Taiwan’s ADIZ.

“This time, two Shenyang J-16 fighter jets, one Shaanxi KJ-500 airborne early warning and control aircraft (KJ-500 AEW&C), and two Shenyang J-11 fighters were spotted,” according to Taiwan News. (Read more from “Taiwan Deploys ‘Anti-Aircraft Missiles’ Against Chinese Pla Incursion” HERE)

Texas Announces 2020 Election Audit in Four Counties

The Texas secretary of state’s office announced Thursday it would carry out an election audit in four of the state’s largest counties.

The announcement came just hours after former President Trump, who carried Texas, demanded Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) back a bill to launch an election audit in the Lone Star State.

“Despite my big win in Texas, I hear Texans want an election audit! You know your fellow Texans have big questions about the November 2020 Election,” Trump said.

“Let’s get to the bottom of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!”

The secretary of state’s office said “a full and comprehensive forensic audit” is underway in Dallas, Harris, Tarrant and Collin counties. President Biden won in Dallas, Harris and Tarrant counties, while Trump carried Collin County. (Read more from “Texas Announces 2020 Election Audit in Four Counties” HERE)

House Democrats Pass Bill to Massively Expand Abortions

House Democrats passed a bill Friday that would codify Roe v. Wade and massively expand abortions in the United States.

The Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021, first introduced in 2013, passed the House 218 to 211 Friday. The 2021 House version was sponsored by Democratic California Rep. Judy Chu, while the 2021 Senate version was sponsored by Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

It is backed strongly by President Joe Biden’s administration.

“In the wake of Texas’ unprecedented attack, it has never been more important to codify this constitutional right and to strengthen health care access for all women, regardless of where they live,” White House officials said in a statement. “Our daughters and granddaughters deserve the same rights that their mothers and grandmothers fought for and won — and that a clear majority of the American people support.”

The act, which calls for on-demand abortions “without limitations or requirements” and for the promotion of “access to abortion services,” has been severely condemned by pro-life activists and Republicans. (Read more from “House Democrats Pass Bill to Massively Expand Abortions” HERE)

COVID Confusion: CDC Chief Overrules Her Own Advisers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky overruled the agency advisory panel on booster shots and recommended the vaccine for frontline workers in an overnight Friday decision.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices met Wednesday and Thursday to determine whether to support recommending boosters to specific populations. The agency advisory panel ultimately endorsed boosters – specifically the Pfizer vaccine – but only for Americans ages 65 and older, as well as those at a high risk of serious illness.

President Joe Biden’s administration predicted the booster shots would be widely available by mid-September. The president’s agenda got a boost when Walensky overruled her own agency’s advisers and backed the booster for at-risk workers in addition to the original recommendations.

“This updated interim guidance from CDC allows for millions of Americans who are at highest risk for COVID-19 to receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot to help increase their protection,” the CDC said in a statement that arrived early Friday.

The move is the latest in what’s been an often confusing series of messaging coming from the administration, scientists and advisers. Walensky said the decision to overrule her own advisers “best serve(s) the nation’s public health needs.” One doctor said that the director’s link to the White House and its preemptive announcement on boosters back in August may have contributed to the decision.
