Local news in Greenville, South Carolina, broke a disturbing story of a women's shelter worker being brutally stabbed with a sword by one of the women at the shelter to the point that "her internal organs were exposed."

But the news didn't give the full story.

It turns out the violent "woman" in question is Michell Silva Perez, a man dressed as a woman, and he flew into a rage at not being permitted into the women's shelter.

The man is being held in isolation at a male prison on charges of possession of a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

Typically, text message scams target your personal (i.e. financial) info pretty quickly.  For instance, bogus “bank fraud prevention” texts pressure victims to make bank transfers on the spot, fake “gift” scams outright steal credit card numbers to cover small “shipping fees,” and fake package delivery notifications do the same with bogus “redelivery fees.”

On the flip side, wrong number text scams are a slower burn.  Here, scammers develop a simple “wrong number” text into a friendly, ongoing correspondence that gets increasingly personal as time goes on.  Once they’ve built enough trust – which can happen over days, weeks, or even months – the scammer will drop a request for private personal info, often by wrapping it in an emotional plea.  This is called “making the pitch,” and it’s not a pitch you want to hear. 

It’s that personal info that leads the scammer to what they really want out of you:  your money.  

According to the FBI, “The scammers behind the fake wrong-number text messages are counting on you to continue the conversation.  They want to exploit your friendliness.  Once they’ve made a connection, they’ll work to become friends or even cultivate a remote romantic relationship.  It’s all a ruse, designed to get you to relax your mistrust so you’ll be more susceptible to falling for their scam, such as a cryptocurrency investment or many others targeting victims.”

When Vice President Kamala Harris made her first and only trip to the US-Mexico border, federal agents on the front lines were instructed to completely sanitize the area to hide the true severity of the crisis from cameras, sources told The Post — even going so far as braiding the hair of unaccompanied minors.

Harris, whose first big job as the nation’s No. 2 executive was to control the flow of migrants across the southern border, went to the border near El Paso, Texas, on June 25, 2021, after pressure from Republicans over her handling of the crisis.

Border Patrol sources said agents on the ground were told to start moving migrants out of holding facilities to put on a “show” for Harris.

Television used to be the great equalizer — a place where Americans of all colors, creeds, and political persuasions could gather to turn off their brains for a while and zone out.

We may have had fewer choices — in both what we watched and when we watched it — but at least every bit of content (we called them "shows" back then) had more or less the same objective: to entertain us.

That generally meant avoiding the same topics you avoid at the neighborhood barbershop — politics and religion.

So much for that simple pleasure.

Now even the most lowbrow dating show must pass muster with the commissars of woke. Now TV producers fall all over themselves to shoehorn leftist messages about inclusion and choose-your-own-gender ideology into their sitcoms and procedurals and single-camera prestige "dramedies."

It's enough to make a man pick up reading.

But wait — don't touch that Dostoevsky! There are still some TV shows out there for conservatives — i.e., anyone who doesn't run from the room screaming at the slightest hint of traditional beliefs such as the importance of family and the value of personal responsibility.

Mike Benz, founder and president of the Foundation for Freedom Online, appeared on The War Room with Dave Brat on Tuesday.

In their engaging discussion, Mike Benz revealed explosive details about the FBI’s actions on January 6, 2021. He uncovered that the FBI had concealed crucial information regarding the January 6 pipe bomber.

Benz revealed that the FBI had deliberately cut the video footage showing the pipe bomber pulling out the bomb from a bag and placing it under a sidewalk bench.

Benz also reported that the cellphone data of the pipe bomber from that day was corrupted and damaged. This individual remains the only person the FBI has struggled to identify.

The newest phrase of “every city is a border city!” is being thrown around but what does that mean?

Well, let’s take a good look at Springfield, Ohio.

Never heard of Springfield. Honestly, I hadn’t either until…

Springfield, Ohio is a small city just northeast of Dayton. Their population was just over 58,000. I said was because approximately 20,000 Haitians have found a new home in Springfield. That means in a short period of time this small little city’s population exploded. Not of Americans moving into Springfield but an explosion of 36 percent of Springfield’s total population is now Haitian illegal aliens.

Prior to this invasion of this “every city is now a border city”, Springfield had a Hispanic population of less than 2 percent. Now, the Hispanic population sits at almost 40 percent! And let me be as clear as The Left is evil, the number of Haitians living in Springfield are not accurate because thousands more have come or are coming. Springfield will no longer exist as it once was. Those days and the days of America are long gone unless we rip out this Stage 4 cancer.

The Israeli Knesset voted in favor of a series of bills that will shut down the UN aid agency for Palestinians (UNRWA). One piece of legislation will name UNRWA as a terrorist entity. 

On Tuesday, the Israeli legislature passed three bills targeting UNRWA. The legislation will prevent the agency from operating in Israel, strip UNRWA staff of privileges given to other UN employees, and name the organization a terror group. 

Each bill passed its first reading by a large majority. The legislation will be returned to the committee and must pass future votes before becoming Israeli law. UNRWA spokesperson Juliette Touma called the law “another attempt in a wider campaign to dismantle the agency,” adding, “Such steps are unheard of in the history of the United Nations.” 

Since October 7, Tel Aviv has targeted UNRWA in a propaganda campaign and targeted the organization’s buildings and staff. In January, Israel claimed to have compiled an intelligence dossier that showed UNRWA staff participated in the Hamas attack on southern Israel.

Rival Palestinian factions including Fatah and Hamas have signed an agreement aimed at ending their division and building unity following talks in Beijing, marking a diplomatic win for China.

Senior representatives of 14 Palestinian factions reached the agreement – called the Beijing Declaration – after reconciliation talks that began on Sunday.

The pact aims to unite Palestinians in their conflict with Israel, which launched a war on militant group Hamas in Gaza in October.

Britain’s Ministry of Defence holds video surveillance footage of Gaza from the day that Israel killed seven international aid workers but is refusing to publish the tape.

Among those killed in the World Central Kitchen convoy on 1 April were three British military veterans: John Chapman, James Kirby and James ‘Jim’ Henderson.

The footage was taken by a Royal Air Force (RAF) surveillance plane which spent approximately five hours above Gaza that day.

It seemingly returned to base in Cyprus minutes before the airstrikes were launched.

The RAF may therefore have collected footage of events leading up to the tragedy, which could provide clarity over Israeli claims that “Hamas gunmen” were seen near the convoy.

Activists have stormed Congress ahead of Benjamin Netanyahu's speech in protest of the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

Inside the US Capitol building, a group named "Jews Say Stop Arming Israel" gathered at the Cannon Rotunda in protest of Netanyahu's visit.

Over 400 American Jews protested at the Capitol building on the day after Netanyahu’s arrival and refused to leave, chanting “Arms embargo now," "Stop arming Israel," and other chants protesting the genocide in Gaza

There have also been calls for a mass demonstration on Wednesday in rejection of the Israeli Prime minister's address.
