Westlake Legal Group FBI New York man accused of plotting ISIS-inspired terror attack in Queens Melissa Leon fox-news/world/terrorism/isis fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox news fnc/us fnc daab7284-e995-5280-826c-1c65197cb18a article

Queens man was arrested Thursday and accused of plotting a terrorist attack with a knife on behalf of the Islamic Statefederal prosecutors announced Friday.

Awais Chudhary, 19, was arraigned in Brooklyn federal court on one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. U.S. Magistrate Judge James Orenstein ordered Chudhary held without bail.

Prosecutors say Chudhary communicated with undercover FBI agents in text messages, telling them he planned to carry out a stabbing or bombing to kill innocent people in the name of ISIS and wanted to record it to “inspire” others. Chudhary, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, allegedly identified two potential attack locations in Queens: the World’s Fair Marina and a pedestrian bridge over the Grand Central Parkway to the Flushing Bay Promenade

Chudhary allegedly ordered a tactical knife, a mask, gloves and a cellphone chest-and-head strap so he could record the attack. He was arrested while trying to pick up those items from an online vendor’s retail location.

“Awais Chudhary had accepted the call from ISIS to kill fellow New Yorkers in the city he called home,” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said in a statement. “He had carefully planned, conducted reconnaissance, picked a target, and was in the process of obtaining the weapon. All he has left to do was to strike.

“The FBI agents and NYPD detectives of the JTTF [Joint Terrorism Task Force] should be commended for the disruption of this plot. Their work almost certainly saved lives.”

Chudhary allegedly told one undercover agent he wanted to use a knife for the attack “because that’s what he knows,” but would be open to learning how to build a bomb if the undercover agent could teach him. That done, he would consider using a bomb at a “mini-bridge over a busy road with many cars,” according to the Justice Department.

Chudhary allegedly sent another undercover agent the screenshot of a document titled “Islamic State” that allegedly instructed users where to stab someone and what knives were “ideal.” The document included diagrams with directions on where to stab someone’s body, the DOJ said.

Chudhary also scoped out his locations, and FBI agents saw him take cellphone photos and videos at several locations.

“There’s no doubt Chudhary allegedly wanted to make headlines by attacking innocent people going about their daily lives,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney. “Thanks to the diligent work of the agents, analysts and detectives on the FBI New York JTTF, the only thing to report today is his arrest, and the only photos Chudhary will be featured in are the ones taken in our prisoner processing room prior to his arrival in federal prison.”

If convicted, Chudhary faces up to 20 years in prison.

‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara slammed on social media over ‘tone deaf’ pics ahead of Hurricane Dorian

Westlake Legal Group Sofia-Vergara ‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara slammed on social media over ‘tone deaf’ pics ahead of Hurricane Dorian New York Post fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fnc/entertainment fnc dea2dd64-ceea-5158-9372-309e75b7956a Christine Burroni article

Sofia Vergara‘s glam beach photos calling out Hurricane Dorian aren’t sitting too well with fans as many are readying for the storm.

“Esperando a Dorian,” she captioned photos on Wednesday, (which translates to “waiting for Dorian”) as her and girlfriends posed in beachy white ensembles with a tropical backdrop — each with a drink in hand. The second photo in the post was complete with her taking a big sip from her drink.

‘MODERN FAMILY’ CAST RE-CREATES GROUP PHOTO 10 YEARS LATER FOR SHOW’S FINAL SEASON

The photo garnered mix reactions from fans as some fawned over the “Modern Family” star’s beauty, but others took offense to her lack of compassion for Floridians who are prepping for the hurricane.

“This is not funny at all,” wrote one commenter.

“I am a fan. But the waiting for Dorian comment was not funny,” wrote another.

Hurricane Dorian strengthened into an “extremely dangerous” Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph on Friday.

Although she doesn’t specifically state where she is, she uses the hashtag “#Casachipichipi” which she’s used before while at her Caribbean island vacation house where she’s brought co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband.

SOFIA VERGARA, 46, FLAUNTS BIKINI BODY ON ITALY VACATION

Despite any backlash from followers, the 47-year-old actress continued to post carefree photos in the ocean with her friends.

In the last of her documenting her trip, she and her girlfriends were aboard a private plane.

“Bye bye Dorian!!” she wrote of the group photo, which wasn’t received too well by fans.

“Must be nice here I sit wondering if I will have to evacuate and will my pets be safe will I have electricity soon after the storm and will everything in my fridge have to be thrown away and I have to spend my money to replace,” one commenter wrote.

“Como se dice ‘tone deaf’ en Espanol?” another chimed in.

President Donald Trump has declared a national state of emergency in Florida ahead of the storm’s landfall.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews blasts Biden over war story errors: ‘A reporter would be fired for this stuff’

Westlake Legal Group chris-matthews-MSNBC MSNBC's Chris Matthews blasts Biden over war story errors: 'A reporter would be fired for this stuff' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 70d1d1e7-c793-540d-a217-707dedc3e035

MSNBC host Chris Matthews blasted former Vice President Joe Biden over a military story he told on the campaign trail that has been called into question, insisting that a “reporter would be fired” for making such errors.

“He never seems to hurt anybody, really, with these gaffes,” Matthews began the panel discussion on Friday. “The trouble is you don’t know whether there ever was a conversation between the former vice president and the four-star general where he said, ‘We could lose a vice president.'”

“I mean, he’s not Ernest Hemingway. You don’t get to make it up based upon facts. You have to have the facts.”

The “Hardball” host praised The Washington Post’s reporting, calling its critique of Biden’s account a “beautiful story” that debunked the remarks “point by point.”

“A reporter would be fired for this stuff,” Matthews added.

BIDEN PUSHES BACK ON REPORT REFUTING HIS MILITARY STORY: ‘I DON’T SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS’

The Democratic frontrunner’s blunder took place earlier this month when Biden recounted a story he claimed to be “God’s truth” at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

Biden offered an emotional account of his decision to travel to Afghanistan, despite concerns about visiting a war-torn area, in order to honor a Navy captain for retrieving the body of his dead comrade during battle.

According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. “We can lose a vice president,” he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn’t want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the event “never happened,” after speaking with a dozen military and campaign sources.

“It appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story,” The Post’s Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe wrote. “In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.”

During an interview on Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart’s “Cape Up” podcast, Biden acknowledged that he had not read the report but stood firm against the criticism.

“I have not read the article but my response is similar to a story you had about the fact that, you know, ‘Joe Biden, you know talked about the assassination of Barack Obama.’ Well, everybody understood the context. It was a totally different context that it was all about. Later, everybody clarified it,” Biden began. “There was no gaffe there. I was making the point to a group of young people that imagine if your generation were confronted with the things that happened in mine.”

“I was making the point about how courageous these people are, how incredible they are, this generation of warriors, these fallen angels we lost. And I don’t know what the problem is. I mean, what is it that I said wrong?”

Fox News’ Sam Dorman contributed to this report.

California appeals court overturns sole conviction in Kate Steinle death

Westlake Legal Group steinlesanchezap California appeals court overturns sole conviction in Kate Steinle death Samuel Chamberlain fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/west fox-news/us/immigration fox news fnc/us fnc article 13d8eab6-4f18-5fd2-958a-a8ca8347df31

A California state appeals court Friday overturned the lone conviction against an undocumented immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015, a case which drew national attention and became a flashpoint in the debate over illegal immigration.

Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On Friday, the 1st District Court of Appeal in San Francisco overturned that conviction because the judge failed to instruct the jury on one of Garcia-Zarate’s defenses. Garcia-Zarate remains in custody and is facing federal gun charges.

Steinle, 32, died on July 1, 2015, after she was struck by a bullet while walking with her father and a family friend. Garcia-Zarate claimed he unwittingly picked up the gun, which was wrapped in a T-shirt, and it fired accidentally.

The gun belonged to a federal Bureau of Land Management ranger and was stolen from his parked car a week earlier.

Earlier this year, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court decision to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Steinle’s parents against San Francisco. The lawsuit maintained that the city’s so-called sanctuary policy and San Francisco County Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi bore responsibility for Steinle’s death.

Three months before the killing, Garcia-Zarate was released from custody after a drug case against him was dropped. The sheriff’s office, which had ended contact between jail employees and immigration officials, ignored a request by federal authorities to hold Garcia-Zarate until they could assume custody and did not inform them that he was being released.

‘The Five’ react to James Comey asking for apology after release of damning IG report

The Five” discussed former FBI Director James Comey’s reaction to the Department of Justice’s Inspector General report chiding him over memos of conversations with President Trump.

“James Comey shows you what happens with people in power — when they have the power and they lose their power, how they react,” co-host Lawrence Jones said on Friday. “The fact that he did all of this, leaking and to harbor information just to get a special counsel is the most concerning.”

The IG report, released Thursday morning, said Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, disseminating and retaining memos documenting discussions with Trump. But it also noted investigators “found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media.”

“I don’t need a public apology from those who defamed me, but a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice,” Comey tweeted in response to the report.

Jones blasted Comey for his hypocrisy.

“The fact that he sold us this entire time, ‘be careful that the institutions are going to be destroyed’ but … he destroyed the FBI,” Jones said.

Co-host Greg Gutfeld accused Comey of “chasing the spotlight” and blasted the media for painting him as a hero.

“The real jackasses in all of this are the media who painted him as a cross between Jimmy Stewart and Paul Revere when really he was just a conniving Forrest Gump chasing the spotlight,” Gutfeld said. “The media pinned their hopes on him undoing an election and he was their tool, literally.”

Donna Brazile defends Biden over disputed war story: ‘He is heartfelt’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057058751001_6057058841001-vs Donna Brazile defends Biden over disputed war story: 'He is heartfelt' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 7ee1c712-e220-517a-b05b-f3cd77cdaf7f

Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Donna Brazile defended presidential candidate Joe Biden Friday as he faced scrutiny and criticisms over a disputed war story.

“Most people know Joe Biden’s character. They know his value system. They know that he visited Iraq and Afghanistan over 21 times as a United States senator and vice president,” Brazile said on “The Five.” “But this story — the way it came across and it came out — [was] heartfelt because people know that Joe Biden is heartfelt.”

Biden responded Thursday to a Washington Post report claiming that a military story he’d shared on the campaign trail “never happened,” saying in a podcast interview: “I don’t know what the problem is.”

The anecdote in question came up earlier this month when Biden recounted a story he claimed to be “God’s truth” at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

Co-host Lawrence Jones criticized Biden for the perceived blunder, saying that he either has a memory problem or is lying.

“So the campaign realizes, the people that are brought to protect Joe Biden, that there is a problem going on whether it’s memory or whatever it may be or he’s just lying and they don’t want him out there,” Jones said.

Brazile disputed Jones, insisting that Biden “misspoke,” unlike President Trump, whom she said “lies.”

‘Mary Tyler Moore Show,’ ‘Rhoda’ star Valerie Harper dead at 80

Television icon Valerie Harper, best known as wise-cracking Rhoda on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” has died after a long bout with cancer, her family confirmed on Friday. She was 80 years old.

Harper, a native of Suffern, N.Y., began her career as a dancer at Radio City Music Hall, then transitioned into theater and improv comedy before ultimately rising to stardom as Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” earning her a Golden Globe and four Emmys.

She got her own spinoff, titled “Rhoda,” from 1974 to 1978, then starred in her own sitcom, “Valerie,” from 1986 to 1987. She appeared regularly on television for more than 30 years, as well as in a dozen films.

VALERIE HARPER’S CANCER BATTLE: ‘NOW IT’S 5 YEARS INSTEAD OF 3 MONTHS’

Harper, who beat lung cancer in 2009, was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in 2013. The disease is incurable, and Harper was reportedly told at the time she would only have months to live. However, she survived for almost/over six years thanks to her medical care.

In July, Harper’s husband, Tony Cacciotti, whom she married in 1987, revealed her doctors recommended she go into hospice care, but at the time he refused to allow it.

‘MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW’ STAR VALERIE HARPER’S FAMILY CROWDFUNDING HER CANCER TREATMENT

“I have been told by doctors to put Val in Hospice care and I can’t [because of our 40 years of shared commitment to each other] and I won’t because of the amazing good deeds she has graced us with while she’s been here on earth, he wrote on Facebook.

“We will continue going forward as long as the powers above allow us, I will do my very best in making Val as comfortable as possible,” he added. “There are two special ANGELS on this planet masquerading as humans who live and work together, that have made it possible to have all of Val’s needs taken care of.”

VALERIE HARPER SAYS SHE HAS TERMINAL BRAIN CANCER

Cacciott went on to say: “For those of you who have been in this position, you will totally understand that ‘it’s hard letting go.’ So as long as I’m able and capable, I’ll be where I belong right beside her.”

Harper’s medical expenses proved nearly unbearable, leading her family to resort to crowdfunding to pay for her cancer treatments and care.

LEPTOMENINGEAL CARCINOMATOSIS: VALERIE HARPER’S DIAGNOSIS EXPLAINED

Harper herself told Fox News in 2017 that she was used to beating the odds.

“People are saying, ‘She’s on her way to death and quickly,’” she said. “Now it’s five years instead of three months… And the thing is, everyone is going to die in one way or another. So why don’t you fight it? I’m going to fight this. I’m going to see a way.”

Harper was happy with how her life turned out, gushing over Cacciotti’s gifts as a caregiver and relishing her illustrious and lengthy career.

“I’ve had a wonderful career. “I got to be an actress. I was a dancer. And then I grew into this area of acting and that was just so wonderful,” she said.

Harper is survived by her husband, Cacciotti, whom she married in 1987, and their daughter, Cristina.

Britney Spears ditches signature blond hair during date night with boyfriend

Britney Spears is switching things up.

The pop icon ditched the familiar blond tresses most of the world is used to seeing her sport, opting instead for a more subdued look during a recent date with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, 25.

BRITNEY SPEARS REPORTEDLY WENT TO TARGET 80 TIMES LAST YEAR

Nestled into a corner table at the popular West Hollywood Italian restaurant Cecconi’s Spears appeared casual and was seen with a new brunette ‘do. This, according to one who told “Entertainment Tonight” that Spears appeared upbeat during the outing.

“She seemed super happy, smiling and laughing a lot,” the source said, adding that Spears “was with two security guards.”

Spears, 37, has been on a quest for peace and understanding on social media of late. Her public sighting comes just days after “Baby, One More Time” performer went on Instagram to share a picture message telling people to “pay close attention to the people who don’t clap when you win,” and denouncing “fake” people and “haters.”

BRITNEY SPEARS’ BUSINESS MANAGER SUES OVER #FREEBRITNEY MOVEMENT WEBSITES

“Living in LA is such a trip !!! It can be lonely at times. You never know who to trust, and some people can be fake,” she captioned the post. “I have a very small circle of friends, and simply do what makes me happy!!! It breaks my heart to see the comments on my posts sometimes …. So I simply choose not to look anymore … let the clever haters do what they do best …. hate!!!”

Asghari echoed Spears’ sentiment, writing in the comments section, “Winners don’t hate or bully, losers (haters) only do because they don’t have what you have (which is the best heart in the world) ♥️.”

Spears and Asghari made their red carpet debut as a couple last month when they crashed the premiere for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Spears looked youthful as she graced the carpet in a tight-fitting redress of her own and her blond hair pulled back for the cameras. Meanwhile, Asghari looked sharp in a cream suit, white shirt, black tie and suede black boots.

The loved up pair looked smitten as they posed for pictures, before turning and giving each other a smooch for photographers.

Britney later shared another adorable photo alongside the model and personal trainer from inside the venue, captioned: “Our first premiere.”

Spears and Asghari met on the set of the singer’s music video for “Slumber Party.” The pair quickly hit it off and after Spears’ video debuted in 2016 kept their relationship a secret for months until they were spotted by paparazzi.

“I don’t think [we] had the intention to just be friends,” Asghari told Men’s Health in July 2018. “She motivates me more than anyone,” Asghari gushed about Spears. “It’s crazy how I can be humbled by a person like her. If I could be that humble when I’m that high in life, that would be the best thing.”

Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, will stand trial with four other men on war crimes charges at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba beginning in early 2021, a military judge said Friday.

Mohammad and his co-defendants are charged with crimes including terrorism, hijacking and 2,976 counts of murder for their alleged roles planning and providing logistical support to the Sept. 11 plot. They could get the death penalty if convicted at the military commission, which combines elements of civilian and military law.

The quintet have been held at Guantanamo Bay since September 2006 after several years in clandestine CIA detention facilities following their capture.

According to Cohen’s order, prosecutors must provide the defense team with a list of trial materials by Oct. 1. In the interim, the judge will hold a series of hearings with witnesses to determine whether or not confessions the defendants made to FBI agents in 2006 will be admissible in court. The defense team argues that after the men were captured in Pakistan in 2002 and 2003, they were tortured by the CIA, and thus the confessions should be thrown out.

The criminal case alleges that Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, a senior Al Qaeda figure, was the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks, in which 19 hijackers took over four commercial airliners, crashing two of them into the World Trade Center towers in New York City, one into the Pentagon and another into a field in Shanksville, Pa.

The other four defendants are Mohammad’s nephew, Ammar al-Baluchi, Walid bin Attash and Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Mustafa al Hawsawi, who allegedly helped to train the hijackers and facilitate the attacks by providing travel and finances to the assailants.

Vice Media is reportedly facing another round of layoffs as it continues to merge Vice News with its cable network.

The Wall Street Journal reported that job cuts were made on Thursday, affecting some 15 people who worked in various departments of Viceland including programming, marketing and research.

Sources told The Journal the move is an attempt by Vice Media to strictly focus on news and veer away from entertainment and lifestyle programming.
