The U.S. Army has discharged more than 500 immigrant enlistees during a 12-month period after being promised a path to citizenship, according to the Associated Press.
Those enlistees were part of the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) recruiting program, a path for noncitizens to come on board with the military in exchange for becoming a citizen sooner.
The program was launched in 2008 due to the military’s need for immigrants with medical and foreign language skills, but was put on hold in 2016 “after several classified assessments concluded that the program, as previously configured, was vulnerable to an unacceptable level of risk from insider threats such as espionage, terrorism, and other criminal activity,” according to the Pentagon.
According to a list turned in to the U.S. District Court in D.C., which was obtained by the Associated Press, a grand total of 502 military service members brought on via the MAVNI program have been cut loose between July, 2017, and July, 2018.
Controversial actor Johnny Depp has broken his silence about the drama surrounding his role in the blockbuster ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise and the allegations of abuse against his ex-wife Amber Heard according to Entertainment Weekly.
“I’ll be honest with you, I felt bad for J.K. [Rowling] having to field all these various feelings from people out there. I felt bad that she had to take that,” the 55-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly. “But ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused…”
Depp, who was cast as the main villain of the series Gellert Grindelwald, claimed that Rowling “knows” he was “falsely accused,” which contributed as to why she came out and supported him publically.
Following a bomb threat that forced an evacuation at Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, Florida, on Thursday, students had to face a second day of disruption because of the threat of violence.
According to a report by News 4 Jax, the school’s principal, John Kniseley, sent an automated message to parents on Friday morning and announced that students will be searched with metal detectors as they enter the school because of a text exchange suggesting a possible school shooting.
On Thursday, the students were asked to evacuate to the school’s football stadium in 91-degree heat, where they had to sit for several hours while the authorities inspected the school building. According to WOKV News, the school’s entrance was blocked and parents were not allowed to pick up their kids. The dismissal was also delayed by 20 minutes.
The news of the second threat panicked students and parents alike, and many students expressed that they were caught “off guard,” per News 4 Jax.
Jessie Kwasney’s photographic exhibit, The Details of Heroes, is currently on display at the UC Gallery at the University of Montana at Missoula, according to The Missoulan, and it is a revelation of an artist’s soul that is not often seen. That’s because Kwasney, a 31-year-old ceramicist and photographer who served two tours in Iraq, used himself as a subject for his work. Kwasney suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his experiences in the military, and created his exhibit to raise awareness and understanding of the condition.
A student from Missouri State University has been charged for allegedly raping a woman hours after she attended a Me Too rally in Springfield over the weekend.
According to a report by the Kansas City Star, Zachary Alperin, 22, went to some bars with the victim after the rally ended, and then went to the woman’s room on campus, per the court documents.
In her statement, the victim said that she allowed Zachary to sleep in her room but told him not to touch her because she was drunk, the Springfield News-Leader reported.
The woman told police that she fell asleep and woke up to find Alperin lying naked on top of her. Per the Springfield News-Leader, the woman “alleged that Alperin performed sex acts on her and she pushed him away.”
Alperin allegedly confessed to performing sexual acts on the victim, as reported by the Springfield News-Leader.
Michigan state officials received an anonymous tip that led them to the horrifying discovery of 11 dead infants. The bodies were found hidden in the ceiling of a closed funeral home on Friday afternoon.
The bodies were discovered by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. They were acting on an anonymous letter they received on Friday, which contained detailed information about exactly where the bodies were hidden, according to Detroit News.
Officials “were met here by the current owner, who admitted them entry,” said Detroit PD Lt. Detective Brian Bowser. “They went to the location described in the letter.”
The state inspectors called police immediately so the bodies could be properly recovered. The bodies were contained in a cardboard box and a small casket inside the ceiling compartment, which was between the first and second floors of the building.
People love to do spooky things around Halloween, but it’s all really for good fun. However, one man named Scott Neff was planning a haunted house at his residence this year, and it raised some red flags. The problem is that he’s registered as a former sex offender. A photo of the haunted house sign on his door showed that “Door opens at 7pm Oct 31.” Whoever made the sign decorated it with a “bloody” red handprint, and “blood” splatters.
When local media from Albuquerque, New Mexico, got wind of this story, they headed to the man’s house and did some digging. According to KOB4, Neff said that his previous charges were for this reason.
“I got on the registry basically because I was fighting my sexuality at the time and I ran across a young man who was also and we got together.”
Jamal Khashoggi is a journalist that was reportedly lured to a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey. He believed he was picking up documents that would allow him to later marry his fiance, but it was reportedly a trap. Jamal was then held hostage, tortured, and brutally murdered by a “hit team” consisting of 15 people. As gruesome details emerge from the ongoing investigation into Jamal’s disappearance, many sources point to a set of audio recordings that prove the murder took place. And now, Apple Insider pointed out that a reporter for Sabah has made claims that at least one of the recordings were made by Jamal himself.
A white woman who called the police on a black child has been accused of being a “racist” by her neighbors.
Teresa Klein, who’s been dubbed “Cornerstone Caroline” on social media, called the cops on a 9-year-old black boy who she claimed had groped her buttocks while exiting a New York City bodega on Wednesday. But according to the Daily Mail, Klein has now been forced to apologize after security footage from the store proved that the boy never even touched her.
Klein left the young child and his little sister in tears after picking up an intense fight with their mother, before calling 911 and claiming she “was just sexually assaulted by a child.” The whole incident was recorded and posted on social media, and the video has since gone viral and caused major outrage among internet users. During her call, Klein can also be heard revealing her home address and her personal phone number.
Two gay penguins have been given their own egg to raise so that the pair won’t be depressed and despondent when the rest of their colony’s chicks are born and they’re left out.
As CBS News reports, Sphen and Magic, two Gentoo penguins who live at the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, are the toast of Sydney. They’ve been given a celebrity couple name — “Sphengic” — and they’re referred to as “the hottest couple in Australia.” They hang out together in their enclosure, go for swims together, and have even been collecting pebbles to build a nest together, as it’s nesting season and penguins. The two are exhibiting behavior evolved over millions of years, and are preparing to mind the eggs and then parent the chicks once they’re born.
Anchors on Fox News were full of praise for Kanye West’s unconventional visit to the White House this week.
As one viral video on Twitter shows, there was a very different reaction from the network when Barack Obama invited some notable rappers to the White House during his time in office.
This week, Donald Trump extended an invite to one of his biggest celebrity supporters, rapper Kanye West. What was originally planned as a closed-door lunch to discuss a range of topics ended up as an impromptu press conference where the rapper rambled for 10 minutes on everything from prison reform to the need for “male energy” in the White House. Though the visit was largely criticized for Kanye’s rant and his use of obscenity in the Oval Office, many Fox News personalities saw it as a win for Trump.
Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah Madden Fowlkes has submitted a guilty plea to a Caldwell County judge. Fowlkes became known by people all over the country for her mugshot. The Sun reported that two photos were taken of Fowlkes at the time of her arrest. In one, the married teacher is wearing a gray and white cardigan sweater over a white top. She removed the sweater prior to the second photo being taken. Fowlkes is smiling in both images. In the first mugshot, her lips cover her teeth, while in the second one, she gives the camera a full smile, exposing her teeth. When news of the teacher’s arrest broke, her attorney, Jason Nassour, explained his client’s apparently happy demeanor.
“This isn’t a guilty person sitting there like they just got caught. When everything’s fleshed out, it won’t be as it appears.”
Just one week after the New York Times published an explosive piece on President Donald Trump’s tax history, another member of the White House’s taxes have come under scrutiny. This time, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is the focus of an investigation by the New York Times. According to the report, Kushner dodged paying federal income tax from 2009 to 2016, according to a new story from Business Insider.
The New York Times took a look at dozens of pages of documents showing that Kushner’s family real estate business frequently listed massive losses. This tactic is often used as a way to minimize the amount of taxes an individual or company owes.
When asked on Thursday if he would consider imposing sanctions on Saudi Arabia over what intelligence agencies believe to be the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi authorities, Trump — as the Inquisitr reported — appeared to say that the flow of cash into the United States from the Saudis was more important than Khashoggi’s life.
“I don’t like stopping massive amounts of money coming into our country,” Trump said, quoted by Vox.com. “I don’t like stopping an investment of $110 billion in the United States.”
Trump referred to what he said was a $110 billion order of military weapons and equipment by Saudi Arabia, saying that losing those sales “would not be acceptable to me,” and that if Saudi Arabia did not buy those weapons from the United States, they would turn to Russia or China and invest their $110 billion there, according to a Post account.
An unidentified man has been taken to the hospital following an attack he suffered while being held at the Maghaberry prison in Lisburn in Northern Ireland.

Maghaberry is considered one of the most secure prisons in Northern Ireland. He was being held there under 24-hour surveillance. Charges against him include the rape as well as causing grievous bodily harm of the 12-day-old baby who lived in the Annalog area of Co Down on September 29 according to Metro. The baby is still in critical condition and fighting to stay alive in the intensive care unit of the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.
Greek officials recently published a bulletin detailing rules that prohibit larger tourists from riding on donkeys, following extensive complaints from animal rights groups that detailed the allegedly inhumane conditions donkeys in the island of Santorini go through.
According to People, the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food took action about three months after an online video emerged, showing donkeys carrying overweight tourists in Santorini. This drew the attention of animal rights activists, who claimed that the animals are being overworked by carrying such heavy loads, which in turn leads to spinal injuries and open wounds.
A man from Colleton County, South Carolina shot his 17-year-old cousin in the chest on September 29 after warning him not to eat all of his salt-and-vinegar potato chips. Nineteen-year-old Ryan Dean Langdale has been charged with attempted murder and the use of a firearm in a violent crime for the shooting itself and obstructing justice for some of his actions following the shooting. He reported the shooting himself but told authorities it was accidental and had been committed by his cousin. He told deputies that his cousin had dropped the hunting rifle while cleaning it. His cousin confirmed Langdale’s account of what happened before heading into surgery, but investigators found that evidence did not align with the description of the incident as provided by the two involved.
Officials at an elementary school in Vermont have come under fire for administering a survey about gender identity, preference, and sexual history to fifth graders.
In an interview with NBC 5, parent Vanessa Beach said that her daughter Zoe brought the survey home and showed it to her. Beach said that her child was told not to show it to a parent but did so anyway.
Beach went on to read the questions on the document that her daughter brought home.
“Have you been in a romantic relationship? ” she read. “By romantic relationship we mean more than friends, like having a partner for planned events like a school dance, going to the movies or having a sexual partner?”
She added that other questions asked about gender identity and sexual preference.
According to NBC 5, Beach insisted that she had no concern about these issues being discussed with her child, but maintained that the wording of the questions was not suitable for kids in fifth grade.
Less than 48 hours after a Manhattan Republican clubhouse was vandalized by left-wing protesters, right-wing Proud Boys — an organization dedicated to “Western chauvinism” headed up by Vice Magazine co-founder Gavin McInnes — took to the streets outside of said clubhouse to brawl with Antifa agitators protesting their rally. As the New York Daily News details, violent clashes erupted outside of the vandalized clubhouse as the Proud Boys took on a small Antifa contingent in fistfights that quickly became wrestling matches on the cold concrete of the streets and sidewalks.
Witnesses also allege that a man brandished a sword before being told to get back into his car by police officers on the scene. Unconfirmed reports from the New York Daily News claim that the man in question was in fact the leader of the Proud Boys and the primary speaker at that evening’s rally, Gavin McInnes. McInnes currently hosts Get Off My Lawn on CRTV, a conservative media network.
