Florida woman’s arm, foot severed by plane propeller: police  

A Florida woman lost her arm and foot after getting off a private plane at Key West International Airport on Saturday, police said.

The woman, whose identity was not released, was hit by the plane’s propeller at the Key West International Airport around 8:45 p.m., the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

Authorities said the woman and pilot were preparing to taxi in the private plane and it “would not move or was having some other unknown mechanical issue.”

The pilot got out to see if the blocks beneath the airplane tires were still in place. The female passenger then exited and was hit by the propeller while walking in front of the plane, police said.

Pennsylvania home had 85 cats living in ‘deplorable conditions,’ most with untreated wounds and fleas: reports

An animal shelter pulled 87 pets from a Pennsylvania home earlier this month after authorities deemed the house unfit for human occupancy, according to reports.

Brandywine Valley SPCA, a no-kill admission shelter, said animal protective services officers removed the pets from the Phoenixville home over two days. Phoenixville is about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

Officials cited by Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV said the floor of the home was covered in feces, while most of the cats had fleas and ear mites. Others reportedly had untreated wounds.

An underweight dog, meanwhile, was found with a skin disease that left half of her hairless, officials said. The dog was also blind and suffering from a dental disease that will require a full teeth extraction, the Ashbury Park Press reported.

SPCA said the cats were found to have been socialized. The healthiest found among them would be ready for adoption as early as Thursday, they said.

“This is a very unfortunate situation of a well-meaning cat lover getting in over her head and not reaching out for help,” said Adam Lamb, SPCA’s CEO. “There’s no excuse for animals to suffer in conditions like this. We need the community to know we’re here to help, and we depend on neighbors, relatives, and friends to report circumstances of concern before conditions get this bad.”

Mexico halts caravan of 2,000 migrants bound for US; critics call roundup a ‘human hunt’

A caravan of roughly 2,000 migrants bound for the United States early Saturday was halted by Mexican authorities only a few hours into their journey, according to officials.

The caravan, which consisted of migrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, left before dawn from Tapachula, a town in southern Mexico near the Guatemalan border, Reuters reported.

Migrants depart early in the morning from Tapachula, Chiapas state, Mexico, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019.  (AP)

Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula early in the morning had been held up there for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities.

About 24 miles into their journey, federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path. Most of the group was detained and put on a bus back to Tapachula, while about 150 migrants returned by foot, witnesses said.

JOE GIUDICE’S SHOCKING TRANSFORMATION REVEALED AFTER HE’S RELEASED FROM ICE CUSTODY

The abrupt halt of the caravan stood in stark contrast to last year when waves of U.S.-bound caravans – including one of at least 7,000 people – drew widespread media coverage while immigration officials on both sides of the border struggled to stem the flow.

Under pressure from Washington, the government has been taking a tougher stance in dealing with migrants, and many Mexicans are being less welcoming.

President Trump, who frequently described the caravans an “invasion,” brokered a deal with Mexico in June, promising to avert tariffs on imports if Mexico clamped down on U.S.-bound migration.

Salva Lacruz, from the Fray Matías de Córdova Human Rights Center in Tapachula, called the roundup on Sunday a “human hunt” and noted officials waited until the migrants had tired out before forcing them into vans.

Sending the migrants back south was an “exercise in cruelty,” Lacruz said, saying the migrants have come to Mexico because “they need international protection.”

Mexico’s export-driven economy is highly dependent on commerce with the U.S., and the government has become far less hospitable to migrants.

Mexico has offered refugees the possibility of obtaining work and residency permits to stay in southern Mexico, far from the U.S. border. But those asylum permits are slow-coming in an overstretched immigration system.

Texas man arrested for threatening San Antonio mayor 14 times in 2 days on Facebook

A Texas man was arrested Friday on charges that he sent more than a dozen threatening messages to San Antonio’s mayor over two days, leading the mayor’s staff to believe the man could be “the next mass shooter,” according to a warrant affidavit.

Adam Thomas Converse, 25, is facing charges of making a terroristic threat to a public servant and resisting arrest, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

According to a warrant affidavit cited by the paper, Converse sent at least 14 threatening messages to San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg through Facebook Messenger on Oct. 4 and Oct. 5.

“It would be nicer to leave you all dead with no hope of life after death … I want to see people dead,” one of the messages reportedly said.

“People will lose hands, arms, feet, and heads. Don’t even try me,” read another, according to the affidavit.

NEW JERSEY MAN ALLEGEDLY THREATENED FARMERS WHO DENIED HIM SEX WITH ANIMALS

Nirenberg’s communications director reported the messages to police, saying that “his office feared (Converse) could be the next mass shooter based on his comments.”

Officers from San Antonio’s Mental Health Unit went to Converse’s residence on Oct. 5 and saw him walk out with a machete on his belt loop, the Express-News reported.

The affidavit said Converse told officers “he was a contract assassin with the government and if he had a license to kill, he would kill people.”

Police said Converse resisted arrest when officers tried to detain him. He was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation and later arrested.

Nirenberg’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

White House petition asking US to recognize Taiwan surpasses 100K signatures

A White House petition calling for the United States to recognize Taiwan as an independent country surpassed 100,000 signatures over the weekend, a threshold that will require an official response from the Trump administration within 60 days.

The petition, posted on petitions.whitehouse.gov, was created on October 7 by someone with the initials “K.W.” It calls for the U.S. to recognize Taiwan, an “island country independently self-governed for 60 years now.”

People hold Taiwanese flags as they join others at a rally to mark Taiwan’s National Day, in the Tsim Sha Tsui district in Hong Kong, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019.  (AP)

The petition calls Taiwan “a model for other Asian countries to follow, having transitioned from a dictatorship into democracy in 1996 without bloodshed, when it voted for its first presidential election.”

Taiwan “is a leader and partner to the United States, providing assistance to other countries with humanitarian aid and rescue teams during disasters. It is also a strategic partner in the Pacific, and important ally in helping to contain China,” the petition said.

Between Friday and Saturday, the petition garnered more than half the necessary signatures to prompt a response from the White House.

TAIWAN PRESIDENT REJECTS CHINA’S ‘ONE COUNTRY, TWO SYSTEMS’ OFFER

The petition comes amid mounting pressure from mainland China, which regards Taiwan as its own territory. In recent years, China has poached Taiwan’s few remaining diplomatic allies through a tactic dubbed by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen as “dollar diplomacy.”

During a National Day speech last week, Tsai rebuked China’s offer of a “one country, two systems” formula to unify Taiwan with China, saying that such a framework has taken Hong Kong to “the brink of disorder.”

Today, just 15 countries – mostly small and impoverished – recognize Taiwan. Roughly 180 countries recognize China, which as the world’s second-largest economy offers generous inducements in exchange for formal diplomatic ties, far beyond those Taiwan can offer.

Taiwan depends on the U.S. for support, including weapons to defend against China. The Trump administration has approved a flurry of arms packages, including new F-16 fighters jets, and signed a bill that encourages high-level visits.

Poland’s ruling conservative party poised to win re-election

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, buoyed by its popular conservative platform and generous social spending, was widely expected to win Sunday’s election, which is regarded as one of the country’s most momentous since the fall of communism 30 years ago.

More than 30 million voters were choosing lawmakers in the 460-seat lower house of parliament, the Sejm, and in the 100-seat Senate.

Law and Justice is the first party since the fall of communism to break with the austerity of previous governments, whose free-market policies took a moribund communist economy and transformed it into one of Europe’s most dynamic.

Critics fear that four more years for the party will reverse the democratic achievements of this Central European nation, citing an erosion of judicial independence and of minority rights since the party took power in 2015.

Polls over the past week gave Law and Justice between 40 percent and 45 percent support. The second-strongest force, the centrist pro-EU Civic Coalition, whose biggest party is Civic Platform, polled at around 25 percent of the vote. An alliance of three left-wing parties has polled between 10 percent and 15 percent.

Turnout at 5 p.m. local time was 45.94 percent, or almost 7 percentage points higher than at the same time in the 2015 election, according to the State Electoral Commission. The highest turnout of above 50 percent was in Warsaw and Poznan, cities traditionally supporting Civic Platform.

POLISH POLITICIAN HAILED A HERO AFTER RESCUING FATHER AND SON, 2, FROM BURNING CAR

Law and Justice’s overhaul of the judicial system has given the party unprecedented power over Poland’s courts. The EU has repeatedly warned that the rule of law is threatened and has sanctioned the country, preventing some of the changes, but not all.

Exit polls will be announced when the polls close Sunday at 9 p.m. local time but official results are not expected until early in the week.

GOP lawmaker requests FEC watchdog investigate chair’s ‘political’ statements

Westlake Legal Group Ellen-Weintraub-GettyImages-131256738 GOP lawmaker requests FEC watchdog investigate chair's 'political' statements fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/elections fox news fnc/politics fnc cf8c052d-777f-5b73-8402-f833b8ff17ca Bradford Betz article

The top Republican on the House Committee on House Administration urged the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) inspector general on Thursday to investigate the agency’s leader for allegedly using her position to publicly disparage President Trump, including making multiple media appearances in which she referred to the president as a danger to democracy.

The request by Rodney Davis, R-Ill. was outlined in a 4-page memo to FEC Inspector General Christopher L. Skinner. In it, Davis chastised FEC Chair Ellen L. Weintraub for using government time and resources for “ideological, and at times, political, purposes.” He recounted four instances where Weintraub had used FEC resources to publish her personal opinions on President Trump.

In a February 2017 statement issued on FEC letterhead, Weintraub requested the president show evidence of “alleged voter fraud in New Hampshire,” a reference to Trump’s claim that illegal voting had cost him the state’s four electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election. In a March follow-up letter, Weintraub reiterated that request.

In May 2017, Weintraub wrote a statement, again on FEC letterhead, rebuking Trump for his creation of an Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, saying: “Mr. President, take responsibility for your words. Document them if you can. Apologize to them if you have to. But don’t ship them off to a commission.”

FEC CHAIR: TRUMP IS ‘DAMAGING TO OUR DEMOCRACY’ WITH ‘BASELESS’ VOTER FRAUD ALLEGATIONS

Weintraub wrote a second letter to Trump about his New Hampshire voter fraud claims in August 2019 in a tone Davis described as “partisan snark.”

“To put it in terms a former casino operator should understand: There comes a time when you need to lay your cards on the fable or fold,” she wrote.

The letter was not hosted on the FEC website, but was drafted with the agency’s letterhead and appeared on Weintraub’s Twitter feed, according to Davis.

Davis also criticized Weintraub for appearances on CNN and MSNBC to “discuss matters outside the purview of the FEC.” On at least two occasions, Weintraub dismissed Trump’s claims as “conspiracy theories” that are “damaging to our democracy.”

Davis argued that Weintraub had violated the FEC’s nonpartisan position by failing to indicate “in any interview that she was speaking as a private citizen and not as Chair of the nonpartisan FEC.”

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Because of her ostensible bias against President Trump, Weintraub “should publicly admit her political differences with the President, disclose her conflict of interest, and at the very least, recuse herself from voting on Matters Under Review involving the President,” Davis wrote.

Responding to Davis’ memo via Twitter, Weintraub wrote she would “not be silenced” and that the “independence of the United States Federal Election Commission will not be compromised.”

Weintraub declined Fox News’ request for comment.

DIA employee accused of leaks remains in custody ahead of arraignment

A U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency employee accused of leaking classified information to journalists will remain in custody ahead of his arraignment Friday on federal charges related to the leaks.

The arraignment and detention hearing for Henry Kyle Frese has been set for Friday at 11 a.m. in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Frese, 30, a counterterrorism analyst who held a top-secret clearance at the DIA, had started as a contractor in January 2017 before working at the agency full time. He faces two counts of willful transmission of national defense information to persons not entitled to receive it, charges that come with up to 10 years in prison each.

DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY EMPLOYEE ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION TO REPORTERS

The prosecutor said he wanted to wait on a pretrial services report before holding an arraignment, which was originally scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday.

Between April and May 2018, Frese allegedly accessed classified intelligence reports – some of which were unrelated to his job duties – and leaked secret information regarding a foreign country’s weapons system to a reporter, according to court documents.

Zachary Terwilliger, right, accompanied by Assistant United States Attorney Danya Atiyeh, left, announce the arrest of Henry Kyle Frese, a Defense Intelligence Agency official charged with leaking classified information to two journalists, including one he was dating, during a news conference outside the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Va., Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019. The Associated Press. 

The documents accused Frese of being romantically involved with one of the reporters to whom he allegedly leaked information.

A criminal indictment said a first reporter wrote at least eight articles from five compromised intelligence reports leaked by Frese. It said Frese re-tweeted a link to one of the articles that used the information he allegedly had provided.

The first reporter then asked Frese if he’d be willing to speak to another reporter, according to the criminal indictment. Frese allegedly said he was “down” to help the second reporter if it helped the first reporter “progress.”

The indictment also accused Frese of speaking about classified national defense information to the second reporter via his cellphone on Sept. 24, 2019. The disclosures reportedly contained information that “could reasonably be expected to cause serious harm to the national security of the United States.”

While speaking to reporters Wednesday, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Zach Terwilliger said he was focused on the leaker, not the journalists.

“If you leak info, you will be prosecuted,” he said.

Feinstein secures $20M to prevent Tijuana’s sewage water from reaching US

Westlake Legal Group Dianne-Feinstein Feinstein secures $20M to prevent Tijuana’s sewage water from reaching US fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/politics/senate/budget fox-news/politics/senate fox news fnc/politics fnc Bradford Betz article 4f994810-d215-5a74-bde9-94ae05653ff4

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has secured nearly $20 million to fund measures that help California prevent millions of gallons of Tijuana’s raw sewage from flowing into San Diego, according to a Wednesday report.

The preventive measures were laid out in three Senate funding bills which appropriate $19.5 million for the EPA to address the sewage flows, direct the secretary of state to create a plan that addresses their impact, and directs U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to submit a report on its efforts to protect its agents from the flows, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

San Diego County has been dealing with raw sewage flows from Tijuana for decades. Last year, a pipe across the border in Mexico broke, causing millions of gallons of sewage to flow into the Tijuana River and, eventually, the Pacific Ocean, impacting California coastal areas.

“It’s absolutely outrageous and unacceptable,” Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina told reporters last December. “The biggest issues that we’re concerned about is this happens again and again and then the Mexican government doesn’t notify anybody. They sort of cover it up and they notify us at the last minute and then our kids are at risk of swimming in sewage.”

DIANNE FEINSTEIN ENDORSES JOE BIDEN’S PRESIDENTIAL BID IN SNUB TO KAMALA HARRIS

Imperial Beach, located just across the border from Mexico, sued the federal government last year, claiming its failure to stop the flows was a violation of the Clean Water Act.

“More concrete action must be taken to stop this decades-long problem,” Feinstein said in a statement. “Raw sewage overflows and other pollution from Mexico along the Tijuana River that jeopardize human health are unacceptable.”

Security officer shoots, kills suspected burglar at Dallas Apple store, police say

A security guard fatally shot an armed burglar inside a Dallas Apple store Tuesday morning, according to police.

The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m., police said in a press release. At that time, the store was open because of overnight construction, Fox 4 reported.

A police spokesman said the store’s back door was open so construction workers could go in and out. The suspect, clad in body armor and armed with an assault rifle, entered the rear of the building “in an attempt to commit a robbery,” Sgt. Warren Mitchell said.

The burglar then allegedly tried to disarm a security guard who was sitting by the door. The security guard pulled out his weapon and fired “multiple shots at the suspect,” Mitchell said.

The burglar fled the store but collapsed in an alley. He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.
