Joint Chiefs of Staff chair on Afghanistan: ‘Not using the ‘withdraw’ word right now’

Westlake Legal Group US-troops-Afghanistan Joint Chiefs of Staff chair on Afghanistan: 'Not using the 'withdraw' word right now' Frank Miles fox-news/world/world-regions/asia fox-news/world/conflicts/afghanistan fox-news/politics/defense/pentagon fox news fnc/politics fnc article 354f3e13-6095-5cd3-888d-5a64eb5bbd6c

Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Wednesday it’s too early to talk about a full withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

“I’m not using the ‘withdraw’ word right now,” Dunford said about the nearly 18-year war. “It’s our judgment that the Afghans need support to deal with the level of violence” in the country today.

The U.S. and the Taliban seemed to be approaching a deal in which U.S. forces would withdraw in exchange for guarantees that Afghanistan would not become a haven for other terrorist groups.

Some 14,000 U.S. troops have remained in Afghanistan, mainly advising and assisting Afghan forces and conducting counterterrorism operations against the ISIS terror network’s Afghan affiliate and other extremist groups, including Al Qaeda.

Dunford said any peace agreement would be based on security conditions on the ground. He noted Afghan forces are not yet able to secure the country without help from allied forces and it wasn’t yet clear when they would be.

“We don’t want Afghanistan to be a sanctuary from which the homeland can be threatened,” Dunford said. “We want peace and stability for Afghan people.”

U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has prioritized getting the Taliban to agree to intra-Afghan talks and a permanent cease-fire. But the Taliban have continued to sideline the Kabul government, which they’ve dismissed as a U.S. puppet, and have not agreed to a permanent cease-fire.

The Taliban have kept up a near-daily rate of deadly attacks, despite holding several rounds of talks with Khalilzad since his appointment almost a year ago. The Taliban control roughly half of Afghanistan and are at their strongest since their government was toppled in the 2001 U.S.-led invasion. when the U.S.-led invasion toppled their government.

DHS bars Dem staffers from visiting border facilities after ‘rude’ and ‘disruptive’ behavior

Westlake Legal Group AP-Facility DHS bars Dem staffers from visiting border facilities after 'rude' and 'disruptive' behavior fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/executive/homeland-security fox-news/person/jim-jordan fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc Brooke Singman article af2f8162-b9c2-5908-bc13-683b3c5e2756

EXCLUSIVE: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has barred Democratic staffers from the House Oversight Committee from visiting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a planned trip this week after committee staff allegedly were “disruptive” and refused to follow instructions during their last trip, Fox News has learned.

Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., had sent his staff to visit border facilities for “oversight inspections” last week and planned to send staff again to view Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and CBP centers.

ICE OFFICES, WORKERS HIT BY WAVE OF VIOLENCE AND THREATS

But sources told Fox News that DHS has revoked access to CBP facilities for the upcoming visit, citing staff behavior that “interfered” with law enforcement operations — including refusing to leave one site after their scheduled window, skipping some tours and being “rude” to officers. A DHS official said that ICE visits will still be allowed this week, but with a two-hour time limit. One of those visits took place on Tuesday.

“Due to the operational burden placed on the field by their refusal to comply with instruction during last week’s STAFFDEL [staff delegation visit], CBP pulled the trip in which more site visits were to take place at CBP and ICE facilities this week,” a senior DHS official told Fox News in an email Wednesday. “DHS communicated to the committee that due to their conduct, CBP could not support visits from the committee this week.”

A Democratic source suggested the visit is being nixed due to concerns about what staff were learning from detainees about conditions on the ground.

That’s not how the agency described it. Last week, following a visit to one of the first facilities on the committee staff’s itinerary, DHS Assistant Secretary of Legislative Affairs Christine Ciccone wrote to Cummings, notifying him that due to his staff’s violations of guidelines, their planned follow-up tour could not be accommodated.

“During discussions between Department and Committee staff, however, the Committee staff repeatedly stated that they do not intend to abide by DHS guidelines,” Ciccone wrote in the letter obtained by Fox News. “In light of this, we are unable to accommodate your staff’s visit … unless we receive a firm commitment that the Committee and its staff will comply fully with all existing guidelines and policies.”

She added that the staff’s attempts to “conduct interviews and take photographs” without limitations are “a significant deviation” from DHS policy and “could jeopardize” the department’s ability to meet legal obligations.

The night before last week’s visits, DHS officials had a “late-night” phone call with committee staff, urging them to “respect officers on the ground” as to not “disrupt business” at facilities.

But according to a CBP official, the committee’s chief counsel, who led the delegation starting in Yuma, Ariz., “refused to leave the facility after the hour-long tour,” despite previously agreeing to a 45-minute tour at each location.

“I informed him that his actions on behalf of the Committee made a huge operational impact by not communicating back to CBP his true intent and expectations for this delegation,” the official said, noting that because of this, part of the delegation only toured Yuma and had to cancel other facilities that were previously scheduled. “This left agents in a position where they were waiting on staff to show and then they did not show at all.”

The official added that another part of the delegation began in the San Diego Sector. The official said that two staffers missed the first portion of the tour, and “apparently ended up crossing the border due to following their GPS guidance and were unable to make it.”

Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, in a letter to Cummings, also said Democratic staff crossed into Mexico “without consultation from the Department of State.” Jordan said the Democratic staff was “rude” and “dismissive” of law enforcement officials during the visit.

A Democratic committee aide, though, said Jordan’s letter was “riddled with inaccuracies and misrepresentations.”

The aide said some of the meetings Jordan complained about “were freely attended by his own staff, who raised absolutely no concerns at the time.”

The aide continued: “The real news here is that the Department of Homeland Security abruptly canceled future inspections and denied Committee investigators access to 11 CBP facilities as soon as Committee investigators began confirming with detainees some of the very same problems identified by the independent Inspector General. It appears that the Ranking Member [Jordan] would rather defend the Trump Administration than conduct meaningful independent oversight.”

ON THE BORDER, OFFICIALS SEE DIVIDENDS FROM TRUMP’S DEAL WITH MEXICO

But Jordan and DHS officials cited a range of concerns about the Democrats’ conduct on-site.

“DHS asked the Committee to abide by the instructions of DHS personnel on the ground and to respect the significant operational interests of the border facilities visited,” Jordan wrote. “Unfortunately, at your apparent direction, Democrats refused to listen to law-enforcement instructions and made demands at the facilities ‘against the express written notice DHS had provided earlier.’”

Jordan said Democratic staff “abandoned” the agreement with DHS for limited photography and detainee interactions, and accused them of “wasting DHS manpower and taxpayer resources.”

Jordan also accused Democrats of withholding information from Republican committee staff and being “secretive” about details of itineraries and locations of meetings and visits.

Jordan also claimed that Democratic staff took “direction from liberal special interests” before last week’s tours, citing a meeting with representatives of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal organization currently suing the Trump administration over detention facilities at the border. Jordan claimed the SPLC gave directions to Democratic staff about what to look for and ask about during their tours, as well as suggested questions for staff to pose to detainees and DHS officials during their visit.

“One aspect missing from your staff travel to date has been any interest in the well-being of, or resources provided to, the brave men and women who serve to secure our border,” Jordan added. “Several Border Patrol agents told us the nasty rhetoric from Democrats in Congress—one Member of this committee even likened them to Nazis—hurts morale and makes some agents reluctant to tell people what they do for a living.”

The member Jordan was referring to was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who has referred to border facilities as “concentration camps on the Southern Border.”

Last week’s altercations between DHS officials and committee aides are not the first such dust-ups. Last month, a delegation of lawmakers visited the border—a trip that became the subject of controversy after witnesses told The Washington Examiner that Ocasio-Cortez was “screaming” at agents and behaving in a “threatening” manner.

Ocasio-Cortez, seemingly in response to the report, tweeted: “They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”. They’re just upset I exposed their inhumane behavior.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s visit and allegations came after the discovery of a secret Facebook group for Border Patrol agents where some posted vulgar jokes and images about her, as well as illegal immigrants.

“They’re threatening violence on members of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “How do you think they’re treating caged children+families?”

‘BH90210’ star Jennie Garth reveals how she and husband Dave Abrams saved their marriage after 10-month split

Jennie Garth is opening up in a big way about how she and husband Dave Abrams reconciled following a 10-month separation.

The “BH90210” star revealed in a new interview that she and Abrams “definitely had to part ways completely,” and that they simply “needed that time to grow.”

‘90210’ STAR JENNIE GARTH LAUGHS OFF TROLLS WHO TOLD HER SHE HAS TOO MUCH BOTOX AND PLASTIC SURGERY

Garth, 47, and Abrams, 38, met on a blind date in late 2014 and immediately hit it off. The acting pair moved quickly and within months were married. However, it was precisely this reason that Garth said put the couple in the crosshairs of divorce.

“We rushed it too much, and we had individual things we needed to work out. Maybe it was a mistake and we’ve all had to learn and grow from that,” Garth told People, adding that the speed of their relationship “hurt us.”

She continued: “When everything wasn’t shiny and pretty and fun like it had been initially, when things got challenging, [Dave] didn’t know how to handle it as much.”

Abrams officially filed to divorce Garth in 2018, less than three years after they exchanged nuptials – a blow that Garth admitted she was blindsided by. She further revealed that she learned of the pending divorce from tabloids.

JENNIE GARTH, TORI SPELLING STILL HOLD A GRUDGE AGAINST TIFFANI THIESSEN

“I found out that he filed for divorce from TMZ,” Garth recalled. “That was a big deal for me. So we used it in the show, because why not use the things that hurt us most and then take the power out of them and make them funny.”

Though great for producing television content, the BFF of Tori Spelling said her split from Abram shattered her spirit as she didn’t want to have to endure yet another separation after her two previous marriages to musician Daniel Clark and fellow actor Peter Facinelli – with whom she shares three daughters – ended in divorce.

“I was in a really bad mindset for a good five or six months. It was just embarrassing,” Garth lamented. “And it made the accepting of it so much harder. But when I finally did accept we’re breaking up, I had to tell myself, Dave is not an option. Because I kept wanting it. And then, just when I felt whole again, we started hanging out.”

“We both had separate learning to do,” Garth added. “And then coming back and sharing that growth was kind of the fiber that connected us back together like, ‘I see you differently now.’”

JENNIE GARTH: HOW I MADE A FRESH START

Garth said she and Abrams continue to work tirelessly to make sure their marriage has the best chance to be successful but notes that “it’s a process and it’s continuously wanting to better the relationship.”

“It’s very easy to go back to those old ways,” she added, though it isn’t all work since the pair also make time for each other.

“Dave keeps me young and fun,” Garth said. “He makes me laugh. And that is the most important thing!”

Target customer claims police ‘violated’ her during pat-down after dispute over coupons

Westlake Legal Group Target-store Target customer claims police 'violated' her during pat-down after dispute over coupons Michael Hollan fox-news/lifestyle fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc f580b94d-a3b1-5165-88fe-90f0119da3a5 article

A pregnant woman in Colorado claims that police officers were too rough with her stomach during a pat-down outside of a Target.

The incident was captured on film and shows the woman getting upset during a pat-down when the officer touches her stomach. During the footage, she claims multiple times that all she tried to do was use a coupon.

In the footage, when the officer touches her stomach, Jazzmin Downs starts yelling that she’s pregnant and that he needs to stop “squishing” her stomach. The police explain that she was making them nervous by reaching into her pocket, to which she responds that they’re making her nervous.

MCDONALD’S EMPLOYEE DEFENDS DRAGGING CUSTOMER OUT BY HIS FEET: ‘HE THREW THE FRENCH FRY IN MY FACE’

Downs had attempted to use a coupon for $1.50 while checking out last Friday, 9 News reports. When the clerk refused to accept the coupon, she asked to talk to a manager. According to her, he wouldn’t look at the coupon and eventually asked her to leave the store.

She had apparently stepped outside to call Target Corporate when the police arrived. According to 9 News, she was initially only met by one officer, although several others arrived a few minutes later.

In a statement obtained by Yahoo Lifestyle, a spokesperson for Target claims that Downs was attempting to use a photocopied coupon. “We explained the policy to our guest, and she became angry and aggressive toward our team members,” the statement continues. “As a result, the store team felt unsafe and called the Aurora Police Department. Law enforcement was not called because of the coupons.”

The Aurora Police confirmed to Fox News that they were called to the Target because of an “irate guest.” While they were on the phone with a Target employee, they said they could hear Downs yelling in the background.

The police also confirmed that officers performed a pat-down on Downs because they couldn’t see her hand or what was in her pocket.

Downs was not charged with a crime, although a Trespass Notice was filled out by the store, banning her for one year.

“All I want is an answer as to why they did what they did,” Downs told News 9. “They violated me as a human. They violated me as a mother. They violated me as a pregnant woman. They violated me just in general for no reason and they had no explanation but we were in fear of you or you made me nervous.”

Modern Family” star Ariel Winter showed some skin in her most recent Instagram post.

The 21-year-old actress Monday posted a photo of herself donning a red crop top and jeans. Her long black hair — which, up until recently, was dyed red — fell over her shoulders in loose curls. Winter appears to be wearing minimal makeup as she stands with her hands on her hips, showing off her abs as she offers a soft smile to the camera.

RYAN REYNOLDS TROLLS WIFE, BLAKE LIVELY, ON BIRTHDAY WITH CANDID INSTAGRAM PHOTOS

“A wild smart a– with nap hair spotted on the set of @abcmodernfam,” she captioned the post, in part.

The image — which had more than 470,000 likes as of Wednesday afternoon — garnered thousands of comments from fans, many of whom complimented the TV star.

“Beautiful!” wrote one of Winter’s “Modern Family” co-stars, Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

“Queen of cuteness,” wrote a second.

“Gorgeous,” commented another admirer.

“You look beautiful,” said a fourth.

ARIEL WINTER FLAUNTS CURVES AFTER ADDRESSING PLASTIC SURGERY QUESTION

The post comes after Winter touched on a variety of topics — from dealing with body-shaming trolls to why she left college — in a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter in July.

At the time, Winter said she is looking forward to auditioning for more “adult roles” now that the beloved sitcom that propelled her to fame is coming to an end.

“It’s strange to think that it’s coming to an end,” she said. “It will be hard to say goodbye. It will be hard to leave that, but I am excited to do new things. I’m excited to play new roles and to do things that challenge me a little more.”

“Alex is a great character but Alex doesn’t change a ton… I was a kid as Alex on the show and now I’m an adult as Alex, so it’s a little different than the roles I want to play,” she added of her “Modern Family” character.

“I don’t want to play kid to adult. I want to just play my age now,” she concluded.

LA sheriff’s deputy fired after allegedly making up story about being shot by sniper

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6077297173001_6077293441001-vs LA sheriff's deputy fired after allegedly making up story about being shot by sniper Greg Norman fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 4689f011-0c48-5d42-85fc-43b4e6376229

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has fired a deputy whom officials say “completely fabricated” a story last week about being shot by a sniper.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva made the announcement regarding Angel Reinosa on Wednesday, days after his assistant told reporters that the department intended on relieving the 21-year-old of his duties. He said Reinosa no longer worked with the sheriff’s department as of Tuesday night.

He then said he can’t comment on the personnel matter and can’t speculate on the motive for Reinosa’s alleged fabrications.

Law enforcement sources also told NBC Los Angeles that prosecutors are exploring potential criminal charges against Reinosa, ranging from making a false report of an emergency to perjury.

Reinosa, a rookie with the department, had cut holes in his shirt to make it look like he had been shot last Wednesday and was treated for a “bruise” on his shoulder at a hospital following the allegedly made-up incident, Homicide Bureau Capt. Kent Wegener said over the weekend.

SHERIFF’S DEPUTY MADE UP STORY ABOUT BEING SHOT, AUTHORITIES SAY

Assistant Sheriff Robin Limon told reporters the department was “incredibly disappointed” by the case and is launching a criminal investigation into the officer’s false report.

“Things didn’t add up,” Wegener said. “There was no sniper, no shots fired and no gunshot injuries sustained to his shoulder. Completely fabricated.”

The deputy claimed he was shot while walking to his car from the sheriff’s station in Lancaster in northern L.A. County. Reinosa reported that he was shot in the chest but his bulletproof vest deflected the bullet into his shoulder, causing a bruise.

Heavily-armed deputies wearing tactical gear then set up a perimeter and launched a massive search for a suspect in triple-digit temperatures Wednesday but weren’t able to find a suspect.

Wegener said the investigation found no ballistic evidence at the scene and no witnesses said they had heard any shots.

Scottish teenage sisters rescue man, toddler in danger of drowning by using inflatable pool float

Two teenage sisters are being hailed as heroes after they quickly jumped into action Monday while at a beach in Scotland and helped rescue a man and toddler who were in danger of drowning, according to officials.

RNLI Fraserburgh Lifeboat said on Facebook the incident happened near Fraserburgh when Isla Noble, 15 and her sister Eilidh, 14, were at the beach when they heard shouting.

The sisters first saw a man they thought was playing with his child on his shoulders, but then realized the pair were in “serious trouble”

The two then took off, swimming out into the sea with an inflatable pool mat to get the two on. Once the pair were partially on the mat, the sisters started swimming back to shore.

Another person, identified as Keith Gray, then got into the water to help the sisters drag the float and eventually push it onto the shore.

“Keith had been enjoying a picnic at the local beauty spot with his family when he saw what was going on and ran down and into the water to help,” rescue officials said.

By the time the group arrived back onshore, the man had fallen unconscious as the girls called for emergency services. A nurse who happened to be on the beach at the time heard cries for help and placed in the man in the “recovery position,” eventually getting him to cough up some seawater.

Rescuers said emergency services arrived quickly. After several minutes, the man regained consciousness enough to thank his rescuers before being airlifted to hospital. The toddler was fine after the rescue, officials said.

“Isla and Eilidh and Keith did brilliant,” officials said. “The girls, for being so young and springing into action and having the presence of mind to phone the coastguard and calmly give them the details of the incident, enabled the emergency services including ourselves to respond and arrive so quickly.”

The incident demonstrated the “dangers of swimming in our seas,” according to officials, who added that everyone should remember to be very careful when having fun at the coast.

Lori Loughlin college scandal ‘doesn’t make sense,’ John Stamos says

John Stamos doesn’t comprehend the college admissions scandal that implicated his former “Full House” co-star Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli.

“I gotta be careful,” the ageless Uncle Jesse told GQ in an interview released Wednesday. “I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it. … I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense.”

Stamos, 56, said he spoke to Loughlin, 55, the day the news broke of her arrest, but that he still “can’t process” the case or its fallout.

“Whatever happened … I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime,” he told GQ.

Stamos first broke his silence on the bribery allegations plaguing Loughlin and Giannulli, 56, in June when it was revealed that Loughlin had been written off “Fuller House.”

LORI LOUGHLIN KEEPING ‘METICULOUS RECORDS’ AHEAD OF COLLEGE SCANDAL TRIAL

“I haven’t been on the show yet and it hasn’t come up, so I’m going to talk to some people about it this week and see what’s going on,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “I’m just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it. It’s a difficult situation for everyone involved. I don’t mean just on our side.”

In March, Loughlin and Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to admissions scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the USC crew team despite neither girl being a coxswain. The girls’ enrollment statuses at USC were put on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

The pair rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case — including Felicity Huffman — accepted. They were then hit with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and now face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted of all counts and charges.

COULD OLIVIA JADE BE IMPLICATED IN LORI LOUGHLIN AND MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S ALLEGED COLLEGE SCAM?

The couple appeared in court on Tuesday in Boston, where a judge ruled they could continue using their chosen law firm, Latham & Watkins, after prosecutors alleged there may be a conflict of interest because the firm previously represented USC in an unrelated case.

In a July filing, the couple’s legal team from Latham & Watkins announced that Giannulli and Loughlin wanted to maintain a united front in court.

“Giannulli and Loughlin are innocent of the charges brought against them and are eager to clear their names,” the filing read. “And they believe their interests will be advanced most effectively by presenting a united front against the Government’s baseless accusations.”

The attorneys added that Loughlin and Giannulli wanted a “common defense” and noted that they understood the risks involved with mutual representation, including the frequent legal argument that “the best defense for one client may depend on compromising the defense of the other client.”

The team explained further, “A common defense often gives strength against a common attack … Whatever happens, Giannulli and Loughlin will have their interests fully protected, and the case will proceed without undue delay.”
