Joe Giudice’s shocking transformation revealed after he’s released from ICE custody

Joe Giudice is nearly unrecognizable in a new photo shared by his daughter after the reality star was released from ICE custody.

Joe’s daughter, Gia, 18, shared a snapshot of herself FaceTiming with her dad after his lawyer confirmed the 47-year-old was en route for his native Italy while appealing a deportation order against him.

“One of the happiest moments of my life,” she captioned the picture shared on Saturday. “Love you so much daddy, so happy you free! See you so soon.”

Joe’s sister-in-law also shared a picture of him on Saturday with his brother Pete.

“A day we’ve all been patiently waiting for. Pete and Joe reunited at last. Smiles bigger and brighter than the sky. Our hearts are so full,” she captioned the photo.

Joe’s family attorney, James J. Leonard Jr., told Fox News in a statement on Friday: “Our system of justice has failed this family. These draconian immigration laws are destroying families, and the time for serious immigration reform is here. It’s absolutely gut-wrenching what is happening. Our country is so much better than this.”

Joe has said he came to the U.S. as an infant and wasn’t aware he wasn’t an American citizen.

Esper defends U.S. withdrawal from northern Syria as Trump decries ‘Endless Wars,’ touts sanctions on Turkey

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6094498192001_6094500292001-vs Esper defends U.S. withdrawal from northern Syria as Trump decries 'Endless Wars,' touts sanctions on Turkey Ronn Blitzer fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox news fnc/politics fnc e9899d01-b078-5335-a514-52ddd090ccb2 article

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper defended President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria as Turkey continues to attack the Kurds, while Trump himself denounced getting involved in “endless wars” and talked up sanctions against Turkey.

Turkey has moved further into Syria, attacking the Kurds and leaving civilians dead in the process, while the U.S. is leaving Kurdish allies to fight for themselves.

TURKISH FORCES CAPTURE CENTER OF KEY SYRIAN BORDER TOWN

“It gets worse by the house,” Esper said on “Fox News Sunday,” saying that the U.S. is urging Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to cease the aggression. Esper said the U.S. finds itself in a tough situation, as both sides are allies.

“We didn’t sign up to fight Turkey, a longstanding NATO ally, on behalf of the SDF,” Esper said, referring to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

Esper said that roughly 1,000 troops will be withdrawing from the north of the country. A U.S. official told Fox News that forces will not be leaving the country altogether, but will be moving southward.

Esper also stated that the fighting “has its roots in conflict that goes back 200 years,” a sentiment that was echoed by Trump himself Sunday morning.

“The Kurds and Turkey have been fighting for many years,” Trump tweeted. “Turkey considers the PKK the worst terrorists of all. Others may want to come in and fight for one side or the other. Let them! We are monitoring the situation closely. Endless Wars!”

While the U.S. is not getting involved militarily, Esper said the administration is “doing everything we can to get the Turks to stop this egregious behavior.”

Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., expressed skepticism over Trump’s intention to punish Turkey.

“I don’t know what this administration’s waiting for,” Van Hollen told “Fox News Sunday,” calling Turkey’s actions “absolutely sickening.” The Democrat said he is currently working with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on bipartisan legislation that would impose sanctions on Turkey.

Van Hollen said that while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has not committed to supporting the bill, he believes that “momentum is building for the Congress to act.”

Trump then tweeted that he, too, is working with Graham and other lawmakers from both parties to impose sanctions.

“Treasury is ready to go, additional legislation may be sought,” Trump said. “There is great consensus on this. Turkey has asked that it not be done. Stay tuned!”

Last week, Trump vowed to “totally destroy and obliterate” the Turkish economy if they did anything “off limits.”

Chicago apartment shooting leaves 4 dead at dinner table, 1 critically wounded by neighbor, police say

A Chicago man with “anger management issues” killed four of his neighbors as they ate dinner and critically wounded another in a shooting Saturday at an apartment complex on the city’s Northwest Side, police said.

The suspect, whose identity has yet to be released, was known to the victims, Chicago police said. The man was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered at the scene.

The shooting happened around 5:30 p.m. when the suspect, a 67-year-old retired construction worker, went into his second-floor neighbor’s apartment and killed a family of three men and a woman who were sitting at a table eating dinner, First Deputy Superintendent Anthony Riccio told the Chicago Sun-Times.

“For reasons we yet don’t know, he opened fire on all four of those individuals, killing them all,” Riccio said, adding the suspect had lived in the building for 15 years.

He then went to a unit one floor above and shot another woman, critically injuring her, police said. Chicago police initially said that five victims were dead but later clarified that one was in critical condition and undergoing surgery.

The victims were all adults, police said. Their identities have not been released.

Riccio said neighbors described the alleged gunman as having “anger management issues.” He said the man had a history of complaints from other residents but investigators “don’t know what set him off.”

It was unclear how the man entered the apartments, but police said there was no forced entry.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the shooting “devastating” and “unfathomable” in a statement on Twitter.

“We mourn the loss, honor the victims, and continue the hard but necessary work of keeping our neighborhoods safe, and taking guns out of the hands of those who are mentally infirm,” she said.

Kimberly Strassel: Media wage relentless crusade to destroy Trump

Westlake Legal Group newspaperrack2 Kimberly Strassel: Media wage relentless crusade to destroy Trump New York Post Kimberley A. Strassel fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion/media fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc article 46452756-6395-589b-8d86-185651fd266d

Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, the mainstream media has shed its once-noble mission — the pursuit of the truth — and instead adopted a new purpose: to take down the president. In an excerpt from her new book, “Resistance at All Costs: How Trump Haters are Breaking America,” out Tuesday, Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal examines how far the press will go in its relentless crusade.

Last week The Washington Post revealed the alarming news that House Democrats were considering having their anonymous “whistleblower” testify from a remote location, and in disguise. Just as shocking as the details of this plan was the justification the Post ladled on this Democratic effort to hide impeachment information from the public.

DAN GAINOR: NY TIMES COLUMNIST ADMITS THERE’S AN ANTI-TRUMP DEEP STATE – BUT CLAIMS MEMBERS ARE THE GOOD GUYS

It explained, high up in the story, that the cloak-and-dagger approach was merely Democrats expressing “distrust of their GOP colleagues, whom they see as fully invested in defending a president who has attacked the whistleblower’s credibility and demanded absolute loyalty from Republicans.”

This, from a newspaper with a tagline of “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” Maybe the better journalistic epitaph is: Democracy dies in bias. How did journalism get here?

I’ve never engaged much in media criticism, because it’s almost too obvious. Yes, the mainstream media is liberal and biased. But at least in the past, that bias was largely a function of insularity. Most reporters weren’t even fully aware they were prejudiced politically; everyone they worked and socialized with held the same left-of-center views.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

That’s changed in the age of Trump. The press has embraced its bias, joined the Resistance and declared its allegiance to one side of a partisan war. It now openly declares those who offer any fair defense of this administration as Trump “enablers.” It writes off those who question the FBI or Department of Justice actions in 2016 as “conspiracy” theorists. It acts as willing scribes for Democrats and former Obama officials; peddles evidence-free accusations; sources stories from people with clear political axes to grind; and closes its eyes to clear evidence of government abuse.

This media war is extraordinary, overt and increasingly damaging to the country.

Japanese pop star’s ‘avid fan’ used pupil image reflections to stalk, assault her: police

Westlake Legal Group hacking-1 Japanese pop star's 'avid fan' used pupil image reflections to stalk, assault her: police Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/japan fox-news/world fox-news/us/crime fox-news/tech/topics/cybercrime fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 7bd8cb6b-ae52-58ca-a331-d7811cc81046

A man described as an  “avid fan” was arrested on suspicion of stalking a female Japanese pop star after allegedly using the reflections of her pupils in photos she shared on social media, then navigating Google Street View to find where she lived, police said.

Tokyo police confirmed on Friday that 26-year-old Hibiki Sato, who they called an “avid fan,” was arrested on September 17 on suspicion of indecent behavior in connection with stalking and causing injuries to the pop star, Ena Matsuoka.

Tokyo police declined comment on the specifics of the investigation, The Associated press reported, adding that the police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, which is often policy at Japanese bureaucracies, said the case was related to the reports about a stalker and pupil images.

5 ESSENTIAL STEPS TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM HACKERS AND ONLINE CRIMINALS

Matsuoka, 21, was allegedly attacked outside her home in Tokyo last month by Sato, who had been waiting at a bus stop after he figured out her address from selfies she posted on social media, Asia One reported, citing local media reports. Sato allegedly managed to identify a bus stop and the surrounding scenery from the reflection in Matsuoka’s eyes and matched them to a street using Google Maps, according to the news outlet, which added that he was able to also approximate the floor she lived on based on the windows and the angle of the sunlight in her eyes.

Matsuoka, a member of the Japanese pop group Tenshitsukinukeniyomi, had reportedly just reached her door when Sato allegedly approached her from behind and covered her mouth with a piece of cloth. He is accused of dragging her to a dark corner and molesting her, injuring her face in the struggle, according to Asia One.

JAPAN WILL HAVE TO DUMP TOXIC FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR PLANT WATER INTO PACIFIC OCEAN, ENVIRONMENT MINISTER SAYS 

After he was arrested, Sato reportedly admitted to the attack and that he was a huge fan of Matsuoka.

Japan has many young female performance groups and fans have reportedly called for better protection of the pop stars after several high-profile stalking and assault cases in recent years.

Asia One reported that Japan revised its anti-stalking laws to cover online harassment after singer Mayu Tomita was stabbed dozens of times in 2016 by an alleged stalker. The news outlet reported that she tried to report her stalker to police about two weeks before the attack, but her concerns were dismissed.

Tokyo Shimbun, a metropolitan daily, which reported on Matsuoka’s stalking case, warned readers that selfies could show surrounding buildings that will allow people to identify the location of the photos and said that people shouldn’t make the V-sign with their hand, which is seen in photos in Japan often, because fingerprints could be stolen.

5 rappers dropped from NYC festival at request of police

Organizers of a hip-hop festival taking place in New York this weekend said Saturday they have dropped five rappers from the lineup at the request of police.

The New York Times reported that the performers were removed from the Rolling Loud festival after a New York Police Department official sent the organizers a letter citing safety concerns if the rappers took the stage.

The traveling Rolling Loud festival was scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Citi Field in Queens on Saturday and Sunday and included major acts like Wu-Tang Clan and Meek Mill.

The performers who were dropped are 22Gz, Casanova, Pop Smoke, Sheff G and Don Q. The police letter said they “have been affiliated with recent acts of violence citywide.”

The Times said Rolling Loud confirmed receipt of the letter and said the artists would not perform.

Each of the rappers cited by the police has had encounters with law enforcement, the Times said. Jeffrey Alexander, who performs as 22Gz, was charged with murder in Florida in 2017, but the charges were dropped after police identified another man as the gunman. Casanova, whose given name is Caswell Senior, has served prison time in New York on a robbery charge. The other three artists have faced weapons charges.

Don Q blamed “misinformation” for his removal from the festival lineup in a statement on Instagram. “I love my city and I never been in any gang activities or had issues at any of my previous shows,” he wrote. Casanova added in the comments that the decision “really hurts.”

Tariq Cherif, a founder of the festival, wrote on Twitter that the canceled artists would be paid their full booking fees and invited to perform at future festival sites.

Missing Utah woman found dead in car, family says

The missing Utah woman who police said disappeared voluntarily has been found dead in her car, according to her family.

Erin Valenti, a 33-year-old CEO of Tinker Ventures, a Salt Lake City-based tech company, was discovered “deceased in her vehicle in San Jose” on Saturday. Before she was reported missing, Valenti was reportedly on her way to the San Jose International Airport in California to head home to Utah on Monday.

“Erin has been found. Please call off the search,” her family said in a statement, posted to Facebook by Missing Pieces Network. “We all greatly appreciate the effort and support people have provided. The family will release more information as they are able to.”

In the “Help Find Erin Valenti” Facebook group, the family continued: “Many of you have seen that the search for Erin has been called off. While we were praying for a different outcome, we are so appreciative for the help and support you have given.”

“Please remember Erin as the beautiful, smart, funny woman that she was. I don’t have any details that have not been in the media. I’m sure that Harrison will thank you himself when he is able, but please be patient,” the post read.

OREGON COLLEGE FRESHMAN REPORTED MISSING, FAMILY SAYS ‘THIS IS NOT LIKE HIM AT ALL’

Valenti’s husband, Harrison Weinstein, pleaded online Wednesday for help finding his wife. He said she was last seen in Palo Alto, Calif., on Monday afternoon, “but never returned her rental car or made it on her flight home to Utah.”

“Her phone has been off since Monday night. If you have seen or heard from her please let me know,” her husband wrote. “Any information to her whereabouts is much appreciated and can be directed to me, her family, or the San Jose Police Department.”

On Friday, San Jose Police Sgt. Enrique Garcia told KSTU investigators were “treating this case as a voluntary missing person.” However, Valenti’s family says she seemed to be distraught on the night she disappeared. Weinstein and Valenti’s parents told the station that they spoke to her on the phone Monday and she seemed manic, though she has no history of mental illness.

“I get that people have the right to disappear, but that’s not this,” Weinstein told KTVU. “Everything she said, she was planning on coming home. She was trying to get to the airport. She’s not thinking clearly.”

A San Jose police officer made contact with Valenti by phone Monday night, the East Bay Times reported. Weinstein told the outlet: “The officer said she wasn’t making any sense. They drove around looking for her on Monday night and never found her.”

Valenti’s mother, Whitey Valenti, said she spoke with her daughter “for hours on and off” on Monday night.

“Her thoughts were disconnected. She talked a mile a minute. She’d say I’m coming home for Thanksgiving, then in the next she was saying she’s in the Matrix.”

Hundreds of ISIS supporters escape camp in Syria as Turkish troops approach, Kurds say

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6094414377001_6094415526001-vs Hundreds of ISIS supporters escape camp in Syria as Turkish troops approach, Kurds say Nicole Darrah fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/terrorism/isis fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox news fnc/world fnc ed038f44-6d64-5424-b4ed-d4d3011d825c article

Hundreds of people affiliated with the Islamic State escaped a camp where they were being held on Sunday after Turkish forces approached the Kurdish-held town, Kurdish officials said.

About 950 ISIS-connected foreigners managed to leave the camp, located in Ain Eissa, roughly 20 miles south of the border, after detainees apparently attacked the camp’s guards and gates and fled, the Kurdish-led administration said in a statement.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in Britain, said Turkish warplanes struck villages near the camp on Sunday. They didn’t provide the exact number of residents who fled the camp, but said clashes broke out between Turkey-backed Syrian fighters and Kurdish forces.

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK: IN SYRIA, FOX NEWS WAS EMBEDDED WITH KURDISH FORCES BATTLING ISIS

Roughly 12,000 people, including nearly 1,000 foreign women with links to ISIS and their children, live in the camp. The town of Ain Eissa is also home to one of the largest U.S.-led coalition bases in northeastern Syria.

The Kurdish forces, who partnered with the U.S. in the fight against ISIS, say they may not be able to maintain detention facilities holding thousands of militants as they struggle to stem the Turkish advance.

Turkish forces have been pushing toward the town as part of their offensive against Kurdish-led forces — fighters which Turkey believes are terrorists because of their links to the insurgency in its southeast. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that Turkey won’t stop until the Syrian Kurdish forces withdraw at least 20 miles from the border.

US TO MOVE ABOUT 50 ISIS FIGHTERS FROM SYRIA TO IRAQ AMID TURKISH ASSAULT, OFFICIALS SAY

Turkey launched an operation to carve out a “safe zone” along the border earlier this week after President Trump moved U.S. forces aside, saying he was committed to getting out of America’s “endless” wars.

The Trump administration has been criticized for abandoning the Kurds, who have been steadfast allies in the five-year-long fight against the ISIS terror group.

On Saturday, the president announced the release of $50 million in aid to human rights groups and other aid organizations in Syria in an apparent attempt to counter the criticism he’s received about the pullout.

“Other presidents would not be doing that, they’d be spending a lot more money but on things that wouldn’t make you happy,” Trump said while addressing a gala dinner. “The U.S. condemns the persecution of Christians and we pledge our support to Christians all over.

Fox News’ Morgan Phillips and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Kim Komando on Amazon public profiles, best TVs, hacked cameras, and more: Tech Q&A

Amazon Public Profile

Q: You mentioned that most of us have a social media presence on Amazon. I never signed up for that! How can I remove mine? This is a violation of my privacy!

A: We don’t often think of our “Amazon profile.” However, that’s precisely what it is. Your profile is created automatically, whether you want it or not, and it contains comments, ratings, public wish lists, biographical information, and other site interaction. This profile doesn’t include your purchases or your browsing history, but it’s very informative. I suggest you remove it. Tap or click here to learn how to get rid of your Amazon public profile for good.

Tracking Infidelity

Q: I am almost certain my spouse is cheating on me. How can I be sure? Can I see where he has gone by looking at his phone?

A: Before we get technical, talk with your spouse. Infidelity usually occurs when the marriage has issues, and these can often be worked out. That said, yes, technology offers telltale signs that someone is cheating. Some signs are behavioral; when someone is standoffish and glued to a phone, always receiving unidentified texts in the middle of the evening, these can seem pretty dubious. To find out, you may have to root through your spouse’s phone. Again, I don’t suggest doing this, but this kind of espionage might lead you to the truth. Tap or click here for digital signs that your significant other is cheating.

Free Microsoft Office

Q: You were talking on your show about how to get Microsoft Office for free. I wasn’t able to write it all down. What’s the secret way?

A: We’re so accustomed to writing and saving Word documents the traditional way, many people are unaware that Office has its own apps. You could theoretically write an entire book on your phone, create spreadsheets, or develop a PowerPoint presentation, and never pay a dime. There are significant limitations, of course; most people don’t want to type long documents on a phone or tablet, and you can’t easily save or export documents. There are other ways to use Microsoft Office, such as going to the Office website and using the online version. There’s also the old-fashioned way: become a student (or find a student) to get a significant discount. Tap or click here for all the ways to get Microsoft Office for free.

Best TV Options

Q: I would like to buy a new TV. Which ones do you recommend? I trust your advice.

A: Most of us haven’t rushed out to buy a large-screen TV because of its 4K capabilities unless there was some bargain. Now, 4K TVs are more affordable than ever, and some models are worth the investment. The mind-blowing pixilation works best with pro sports, blockbuster action movies, and ultra-scenic TV series like “Planet Earth,” but everyone can enjoy that vivid picture – and it’s hard to go back. So if you’re going to upgrade, 4K is a great way to go. Tap or click here for the best big screen and 4K TV deals

Secure Security Cameras

Q: I have smart security cameras in my house. How can I make sure hackers aren’t able to get into my network and see the cameras?

A: Once you start investing in a smart home, you open yourself up to potential hacks. Such intelligent gadgets are referred to as “the Internet of Things.” The most basic protection is to use a virtual private network (VPN), which is very difficult for hackers to crack. You should also change all default passwords and keep each of the device’s firmware updated. Switch off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you don’t need them. As for your security cameras, these are a real hazard because they can capture intimate moments and alert criminals when you’re not at home.
