Former nurse pleads guilty to abusing nine infants, leaving them with broken ribs, legs

A former Wisconsin nurse pleaded guilty Monday to abusing or neglecting nine infants in a newborn intensive care unit, leaving them with an array of injuries including broken ribs and legs and a fractured skull.

Christopher Kaphaem, 44, pleaded guilty to all 19 felony counts against him. He faces up to 148 years in prison. He was expected to go to trial next month.

Madison police began investigating Kaphaem in response to reports of injuries to infants in February 2018 at the UnityPoint Health-Meriter Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU),

One boy sustained 17 fractures or suspected fractures, one health official testified. A criminal complaint offered no potential motive.

Eight of the nine infants allegedly abused were born prematurely, as early as 27 weeks, The Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Kaphaem worked for the hospital for more than 14 years. His license was suspended Feb. 8, 2018.

The hospital was cited in March of that year after federal inspectors found it didn’t respond appropriately to allegations of infant abuse in April 2017.

Meriter said it has installed video monitoring in NCIU patient rooms and has updated procedures for reporting abuse.

Only 11 percent of network news coverage of Ukraine controversy referenced Bidens, right-leaning watchdog claims

Westlake Legal Group Hunter-Joe-Biden-GettyImages-520783510 Only 11 percent of network news coverage of Ukraine controversy referenced Bidens, right-leaning watchdog claims Sam Dorman fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc d2003021-208f-5479-b9ba-27747b7caa42 article

Major broadcast network news shows only spent 11 percent of its Ukraine coverage referencing the controversy surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings, right-leaning media watchdog Newsbusters reported on Tuesday.

According to the study, ABC, NBC, and CBS took seven hours and five minutes out of their morning and evening news shows to focus on the controversy surrounding President Trump and Ukraine. The study, conducted from Sept. 20 to Sept. 30, showed that only 46 minutes of that time was devoted to Hunter Biden and his father. That included 12 minutes from ABC, 16 minutes from CBS, and 18 minutes from NBC.

CHAFFETZ: LACK OF COVERAGE OF HUNTER BIDEN’S INVOLVEMENT WITH UKRAINE IS ‘SUCH A DOUBLE STANDARD’

The study’s Sept. 20 start date was around the time when news reports surfaced that the administration allegedly suppressed a whistleblower report on Trump asking the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Biden. The former vice president has come under fire for pressuring the Eastern European nation to fire its top prosecutor, who had been investigating Burisma Holdings, where Hunter Biden sat on the board.

While Democrats have seized on the issue as a springboard for impeachment, Republicans have tried to refocus the conversation on the Bidens.

“Even when networks mentioned Trump’s concern about Hunter benefiting from his father’s status as vice president, they were quick to dismiss the allegations with the refrain: ‘no evidence of any wrongdoing,'” Newsbusters’ Geoffrey Dickens wrote.

Dickens quoted reporters on each of the three networks downplaying the idea that Hunter Biden engaged in any misconduct.

More from Media

“Over on the Sept. 20 NBC Nightly News,” Dickens wrote, “correspondent Hallie Jackson also downplayed any conflict of interest involving Hunter Biden: ‘The President’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has suggested then-Vice President Biden tried to stop an investigation into a Ukrainian company that named his son to its board, despite no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden.'”

“But if the networks dared to look just a little bit into Hunter Biden’s history with the Ukranian energy company Burisma, they’d find plenty of evidence of questionable behavior involving the Bidens – that would be worth more than 46 minutes of coverage,” Dickens added.

He pointed to a book authored by Peter Schweizer, who has defended the idea that Ukraine should investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings.

“There’s no conspiracy theory here,” Schweizer, the author of “Secret Empires,” told “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “It’s the oldest game in politics, which is: follow the money and self-enrichment. Joe Biden just wants these issues to go away.”

He added that Hunter Biden’s activities were documented and that his father shouldn’t dismiss the issue as a conspiracy theory. Schweizer pointed to “his son joining this corrupt board where he had no background and expertise in the country and his son doing the same thing in China.”

Border Patrol cares for toddler rescued from smugglers posing as child’s family

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6089296574001_6089290080001-vs Border Patrol cares for toddler rescued from smugglers posing as child’s family fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox news fnc/politics fnc b926190c-dc93-5122-a436-e429fefbb0df article Adam Shaw

Border Patrol agents in Texas last week cared for a toddler after the child was rescued from human smugglers posing as a family — as officials in Washington sound the alarm about the continued danger of such activity at the border.

The child was rescued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations, while the two smugglers,who’d been posing as a family, were taken into custody.

INSIDE TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION TENT COURTS: CONTROVERSIAL SYSTEM MEANT TO FAST-TRACK ASYLUM BACKLOG

After it was determined that the child had no relation to the smugglers, the Uvalde Border Patrol Station took care of the child for nearly 24 hours. The child was then placed in the custody of Health and Human Services.

In a press release, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said agents “personally cared for the toddler over the course of three shifts.” The child’s relatives have not yet been identified, while the smugglers are being held by HSI pending charges.

“Of all the people that smugglers exploit, children are the most vulnerable,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “Thanks to the cooperative efforts between HSI  and Border Patrol, this child was removed from a dangerous situation and properly cared for.”

CBP CHIEF RIPS INTO ‘RECKLESS’ LAWMAKERS FOR ATTACKS ON BORDER AGENTS, WARN IT’S HURTING MORALE

CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan maintained in a Fox News interview last month that agents are being vilified despite efforts to care for children amid a crisis at the southern border.

“The men and women of CBP, they are caring for these kids like they’re their own kids, I’ve seen it,” he said. “I’ve seen where they brought in their own clothes and toys early on during this crisis for these kids”

The toddler’s rescue comes as officials and lawmakers have been calling for changes to immigration law to stop children from being used as de facto passports to the U.S. by migrants crossing the southern border.

The 1997 Flores court settlement limits how long unaccompanied children can be held in custody to 20 days. In 2016, a court ruled that the limit also applies to minors accompanied by adults. It has led to a situation where migrants know they are likely to be released into the interior of the U.S. if they are accompanying a child.

The Trump administration has sought to end the settlement, but has been blocked by a legal challenge. But officials have pushed several measures they say have effectively ended “catch and release” for families at the border.

Under one such measure, migrants from Central America will be returned to their country of origin, unless they claim fear of being returned — if they do, they will mostly be returned to Mexico to await hearings under the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP).

Democrats have accused the Trump administration of running detention centers with inhumane conditions as part of a “cruel” immigration policy.

“This administration has admitted to using cruelty as a deterrent, and that includes forcing migrants to wait their turn to apply for asylum in Mexico,” Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, said last month.

In the House and Senate, lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require DNA testing to verify relationships between adult migrants and children.

Angelina Jolie hasn’t felt ‘free’ or ‘safe’ in years

Angelina Jolie revealed in a new interview that she hasn’t felt secure in years.

“There have been times in my life where I have felt — and maybe I’ve hidden them well from the public — where I have not felt free, I have not felt safe, I have not felt like free of harm,” the Oscar winner, 44, told E! News. “I have felt small. I have felt cornered. And it has taken a lot to find that again, probably more of that today than I was in the last four years.

“These last few years haven’t been the easiest, and I haven’t felt very strong,” she confessed. “There’s something when you’re not feeling very strong, where you push yourself.”

ANGELINA JOLIE OFFICIALLY DROPS BRAD PITT’S LAST NAME

Jolie did not go into detail on what’s gotten her down, though many speculate that her divorce from ex-husband Brad Pitt, as well as the subsequent custody battle in the split, played a factor.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 after two years of marriage and nearly 12 years together. They have six children.

WHAT REALLY TORE BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE APART?

Authorities investigated allegations that Pitt was abusive toward his then-15-year-old son Maddox on a private flight, but sources familiar with the case said the actor was cleared of any wrongdoing.

The exes reportedly reached a custody agreement in November.

It’s not all doom and gloom for the “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” star. She says part of what makes the bewitching character so intriguing is her darkness.

“I think Maleficent is wild,” she said. “I think there is that thing in all of us that is just not safe and not fine, that wants to just have fun and be our best self.”

Iowa police have accused a 14-year-old boy of posting an advertisement for a “school shooter” on a job search website.

Fort Dodge police said Monday the boy was taken into custody and charged as a juvenile with threat of terrorism. His name was not released because he is a minor.

Police said those who saw the post Friday afternoon on the online job board Indeed.com alerted them and the Fort Dodge Community School District (FDCSD).

“With student safety being of utmost importance, we always are working in collaboration with the FDCSD anytime a potential threat or concern is raised,” police said. “This incident was no different. Once information was gathered, we worked closely with the school staff to identify the individual involved and hold them accountable.”

Police said it wasn’t readily apparent who had posted the ad because the post provided only minimal content.

Arizona bride, groom arrested in wedding-day assault on cops, police say

A just-married bride and groom in Arizona were arrested over the weekend after allegedly assaulting police officers following their wedding day festivities, authorities said.

Prescott police officers responded to reports of a woman wearing a wedding dress trying to assault a store clerk of a local business around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, the Arizona Republic reported, citing a police statement.

Officers located the bride and groom, identified as 30-year-old Ashley Jordan and 32-year-old Eric Cordova, along Prescott’s Whiskey Row, police said. Cordova allegedly became aggressive toward officers when they approached Jordan.

An officer tried to restrain Cordova, but the pair fell to the ground during the struggle, police said. Other members of the wedding party began assaulting the officer to prevent Cordova’s arrest, KPHO-TV reported.

As the group refused to listen to officers’ commands, Jordan, still wearing her wedding dress, allegedly pushed an officer and struck another, police said.

The newlyweds were arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, police said.

Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy on Monday used the video game “Donkey Kong” to illustrate quarterback Spencer Sanders’ progress in his first full season as a starter.

Sanders, a redshirt freshman, is 76-for-121 with eight touchdown passes and 1,043 passing yards in five games for the Cowboys this season. Gundy also described which level Sanders is on.

“When you get started on Donkey Kong, you could never get past the elevator level,” Gundy said, according to The Oklahoman. “You had the barrels, and then you had the structure. And then, the third level was the elevators. And that third jump you had to make to get up to get over, it took a while. But after you did it 50-60 times, you could make that jump and then you were set. You had a chance to set the high score.”

Gundy continued: “He’s on the barrels. No, I’m joking. The barrels is easy. He’s on the structure now. And he’s conquering that and he’s working to get to the elevators. And he’s probably past the first jump. The second one’s not as bad. The third one’s a tough one.”

Gundy then had to explain how he knows so much about the classic arcade game.

“There used to be a Godfather’s Pizza up on Reno Avenue in Midwest City [Oklahoma],” he said. “I’d ride my bike up there and play ‘Donkey Kong’ all the time and set the high score. Can you imagine that? Kids riding their bikes? Nowadays nobody rides a bike anywhere.”

GOP lawmakers slam Chinese Communist Party’s ‘appalling record of repression’ on 70th anniversary

Republican members of Congress released scathing statements Tuesday condemning the Chinese Communist Party on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., said the Chinese government’s birthday was “not a day for celebration,” as they said the a one-party state has “deprived its citizens of their fundamental human rights and human dignity.”

“From the tens of millions who starved to death during Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward, to the students who stared down tanks in Tiananmen Square, to the millions of Uighurs who have languished in concentration camps, and now to the courageous people of Hong Kong,” Cheney and Gallegher said, “the [Chinese Communist Party’s] appalling record of repression is clear.”

LIZ CHENEY ACCUSES RAND PAUL OF PUTTING TERRORISTS ‘FIRST’ AFTER HE SAYS SHE’S ‘WARMONGERING’

The representatives’ statement, which calls on Americans “to ensuring that the Chinese Communist Party is left in the ash heap of history,” draws a stark contrast to the laudatory tweet marking the occasion sent Tuesday morning by President Trump.

“Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China!” Trump wrote.

Though Trump has traded tariffs with Chinese President Xi Jinping, he has often been criticized for being too soft on international strongmen. In a recording of a 2018 speech to GOP donors, which was obtained by CNN, Trump joked about Xi’s status as president for life after the Comunist party removed term limits for its leader.

HONG KONG VIOLENCE LEAVES 1 SHOT BY POLICE AS CHINA MARKS 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF COMMUNIST PARTY

“He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great,” Trump said to laughter. “And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., also denounced the Chinese government on the 70th anniversary of the republic’s founding.

“To see the price of the [People’s Republic of China’s] anniversary celebration, look no further than what’s happening in Hong Kong: a ceaseless war against those who wish to live in freedom,” Cotton said. “From the Great Leap Forward to the Cultural Revolution to the camps in Xinjiang today, it has been a ghoulish 70 years of Chinese Communist Party control.”

Tuesday’s anniversary comes as pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, who regularly carry American flags, call on Trump to help “liberate” them from Bejing’s rule and Taiwan tries to fend off China’s efforts to peel away its diplomatic allies.

Jussie Smollett slams comparison to 12-year-old girl who lied about classmates cutting her dreadlocks

Jussie Smollett hit back at a social media user who compared his alleged hate crime hoax to a 12-year-old girl who recently admitted she made up a story about how her dreadlocks were cut off by her white schoolmates.

Journalist Derrick Jackson posted a comment on Instagram that read, “Jussie really is a trendsetter,” insinuating that the young girl, Amari Allen, took a page from Smollett’s alleged book of lies.

She claimed three white boys cut her hair while on the playground at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Va., but later confessed the incident didn’t really happen after security footage couldn’t corroborate her story.

JUSSIE SMOLLETT’S ALLEGED HATE CRIME ATTACK: A TIMELINE OF EVENTS

“With all due respect brother, y’all can clown me all you want but my story has actually never changed and I haven’t lied about a thing,” Smollett, 37, responded on social media.

“Y’all can continue to be misinformed, internalized sheep, who believe what actual proven liars feed you or you can read the actual docs. Either way, Imma be alright. I know me and what happened. You don’t. So carry on. All Love,” he added.

In January, Smollett told police he was attacked by two masked men as he was walking home from a Chicago Subway sandwich shop at approximately 2 a.m. The openly gay actor alleged that the masked men beat him, taunted him with homophobic and racial slurs and yelled, “This is MAGA country.”

It was determined by police in late March that the former “Empire” star staged the racist hate crime he endured while shooting the show in Chicago.
