Killer illegal immigrant busted leading double life in Massachusetts
William Hernando Usma Acosta, 61, fled Colombia for the United States in June 1994 after murdering his wife, Laura Rose Agudelo, and attempting to murder his daughter.
The criminal had been living in the greater Boston area under the alias Carlos Alberto Rendon, after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in 1995 and marrying a U.S. citizen in 1998, according to ICE.
The fugitive shot and killed his wife during a domestic incident and shot at his daughter when she tried to intervene, the agencies said. In 1996, he was sentenced to 45 years in prison on the charges of aggravated murder, aggravated attempted murder, and illegal possession of a firearm.
After marrying a U.S. citizen in 1998, Acosta, who had changed his name to Rendon by that time, moved to Belmost with his wife and son.
He later submitted an application for naturalization to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and submitted a fraudulent Colombian birth certificate and fingerprints to the agency.
NJ inmates at women’s only prison pregnant after sex with ‘another incarcerated person’
Two inmates at New Jersey’s only women’s prison are pregnant after reportedly having sex with a transgender inmate.
It appears the women became pregnant from “consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person,” Dan Sperrazza, the Department of Corrections’s external affairs executive director, told NJ.com.
The prison houses more than 800 inmates, and began housing transgender women last year following a lawsuit brought forth by a trans inmate who lived in men’s prisons for 18 months and the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey.
NYC elementary school slashing sends Bronx teacher, school security guard to hospital: police
The suspect is a 23-year-old male who had a prior relationship with a teacher at the school, an NYPD spokeswoman told Fox News Digital. Charges against him remained pending. Despite local reports, the accused slasher was not a noncustodial parent of a student at the school.
The suspect attempted to enter the school but was confronted by a school safety agent, the NYPD spokeswoman said. The suspect got into a dispute with the female teacher and attempted to assault her, but the school safety agent intervened.
The safety agent was slashed in the neck by an unknown weapon, and the teacher was punched in the back of the head, where she suffered bruising, police said.

Texas mother of 9-year-old girl who died in shooting slams killer’s release on bail: ‘Out of control’
“It’s unfair that he has a choice,” Alvarez told co-host Carley Shimkus. “I don’t have my baby here… I didn’t get a second chance. My daughter didn’t get a second chance. We had a plan and a lot of people [are] telling me that probably it was meant to be in God’s plan, but I don’t I don’t think so.”
The family’s SUV was targeted by a man who mistakenly thought a suspect who robbed him at a drive-thru ATM moments earlier was inside.
The suspect, Tony Earls, was charged with aggravated assault with serious bodily injury and released from jail after posting bail. The charge was filed before the young girl died from her wounds.
According to Alvarez, her daughter’s murderer is still out on bond walking free. She is expected to meet with Governor Greg Abbott regarding the crime surge, expressing her hope he will be able to mitigate the ongoing spike.
Florida man arrested in attempted kidnapping of child bonds out of jail
The 37-year-old was arrested Tuesday, a day after surveillance cameras in the Azalea Park neighborhood of Orlando showed him approach a child, touch their shoulders and face, and attempt to lure the child into his SUV, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office previously said.
Nguyen told deputies that he told the child he was “cute” and offered to give him a ride to school, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Fox News Digital. Deputies said that Nguyen stated he had seen the child walking to school five or six times before Monday’s incident.
The report said Nguyen told deputies that the boy reminded him of his brother, who reportedly died years earlier, and didn’t understand what he did wrong.
Elon Musk offers to buy Twitter, take it private
Musk’s best and final offer was to pay $54.20 per share for 100% of Twitter, and said that if his offer was not accepted he’d have to reconsider his position as a shareholder, according to an SEC filing.
He wrote in the filing that he’d want to “transform” the social media platform as a private company.
“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy,” Musk wrote. “However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form.”
The Left Is Freaking Out Over Elon Musk Because Twitter Rigs The Game For Democrats
Mega-billionaire Elon Musk wants to buy out Twitter, and leftists are freaking out at the thought of their censorship regime potentially being on the brink of destruction.
Twitter employees were already panicked at the possibility of Musk joining the company’s board. Now, many are publicly hyperventilating as they face completely losing their grip on a platform they can use to nuke their political enemies for saying a man is a man.
Twitter’s interference extends far beyond the 2020 election. When the Big Tech company isn’t regulating speech, it is editorializing news and regurgitating its propaganda spin as a “trending topic” on the site.
Those censorship attempts are public, but Twitter also uses covert tactics such as algorithm manipulation to ensure that their ideological opponents don’t get the traffic they deserve and that the political causes they care about are elevated.

Whitey Bulger’s nephew played key role in Hunter Biden’s Chinese business ventures
In addition to being Whitey’s nephew, Jim Bulger is the son of William “Billy” Bulger, who served as president of the Massachusetts State Senate for eight years.
Billy Bulger was an ally of John Kerry when he served in the Senate. Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer.
Jim Bulger served as the chairman of Boston-based Thornton Group LLC— a firm that joined forces with Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca to launch its joint-venture with Chinese investment firm Bohai Capital to create BHR Partners. BHR Partners is controlled by Bank of China Limited.
One email, dated Jan. 27, 2014, with the subject line: “Meeting with Chinese Ambassador,” shows Bulger suggesting himself, Hunter Biden, and his Rosemont Seneca co-founder Devon Archer, “meet with the Chinese ambassador in DC to talk about the fund.”
Colleagues worry Dianne Feinstein is now mentally unfit to serve, citing recent interactions
When a California Democrat in Congress recently engaged in an extended conversation with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, they prepared for a rigorous policy discussion like those they’d had with her many times over the last 15 years.
Instead, the lawmaker said, they had to reintroduce themselves to Feinstein multiple times during an interaction that lasted several hours.
Rather than delve into policy, Feinstein, 88, repeated the same small-talk questions, like asking the lawmaker what mattered to voters in their district, the member of Congress said, with no apparent recognition the two had already had a similar conversation.

After Mocking Christians, Democrat Cindy Axne Dons Hijab at Iowa Islamic Center
Axne, last September, was caught on a recording during an appearance with a far-left activist group from New York, Markers For Democracy, where she discussed her party’s response to the coronavirus pandemic when she made vulgar comments about her constituents of the Christian faith.
While Axne called her constituents of the Christian faith “anti-vaxxer crazies,” she forgot to mention that the Democrat politicians wanted to force restrictions on Americans, which “temporarily closed houses of worship,” which caused the polarization of going to church.
Following many gaffes and mishaps over the past year from Axne, this past weekend looking to correct some of her mistakes and make a positive impression on voters ahead of the upcoming election, she donned a hijab at Iowa Islamic Center.
Human Rights Group Decries Christian ‘Genocide’ in Nigeria
This is exactly what is happening in Nigeria at the hands of Fulani militants, Boko Haram, and its offshoot, Islamic State West Africa,” ICC spokesman Addison Parker told Crux, an online Catholic news outlet.
“Christian farmers are being killed daily. Priests are targeted, churches are burned down,” Parker said.
“While other factors are at play, such as Muslim herders desire for land grabbing, the horrific measures taken to fulfill such desires is fueled by the extremist notion that they are superior to those whom they consider ‘infidels’ – anyone that doesn’t follow their extremist agenda.”
“The Nigerian government gives these attacks lip service without any meaningful response. Where is the outcry? Where is effective action?” he asked.
King recalled that in Nigeria, “the military, the police, and the intelligence agencies are all controlled by Muslims. This, coupled with a 20-year lack of response by these agencies, should naturally lead to deeper questioning by the international community.”

Biden’s Shanghai SILENCE shows he’s been BOUGHT by China
The world — along with the Biden administration — SHOULD be outraged about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the destruction caused by President Putin.
But there’s another ongoing crisis that deserves just as much furor from around the world — yet President Biden remains silent. Glenn details what’s currently happening in Shanghai, China, where millions of residents have been forced into their homes — without food — due to strict COVID lockdown measures.
Shanghai residents are suffering immeasurably, and many of them already have succumbed over the last week to the Chinese government’s brutality.
We must DEMAND our President speak out against this tragedy because if he doesn’t, it further proves his administration has been BOUGHT AND SOLD by the CCP.

Russia makes nuclear threat to Sweden, Finland over NATO consideration
Russia will have to bolster its defenses in the Baltic Sea — including a potential nuclear escalation — if Sweden and Finland join NATO, Moscow said on Thursday.
“The current Russian threats look quite strange when we know that, even without the present security situation, they keep the weapon 100 km from Lithuania’s border,” Anusauskas said. “Nuclear weapons have always been kept in Kaliningrad. The international community, the countries in the region, are perfectly aware of this. They use it as a threat.”
Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte also dismissed the threat.
“That Russia threatens, it is nothing new,” Simonyte said Thursday, according to the Independent. “Kaliningrad is a very militarized zone, has been for many years, and it is in the Baltic region.”
