    Leonel Moreno, the “migrant influencer” who mocked America on social media and encouraged migrants to squat in the homes of US citizens, is facing potential federal firearms charges, The Post has exclusively learned. Internal federal documents reviewed by The Post show the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been in contact with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding Moreno, and is mulling charges against him. The exact charges are not known, but sources said they would likely be brought under a section of the Gun Control Act which prohibits those on parole from possessing, shipping, transporting or receiving...

    Illegal ‘migrant influencer’ Leonel Moreno, who mocked America on social media in several viral videos, has been nabbed by federal immigration authorities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) fugitive operations officers arrested Moreno in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday and he is currently being held at Geauga County Jail, according to ICE records. The arrest comes after The Post exclusively reported how Moreno had skipped out on ICE soon after crossing the southern border into Texas illegally in 2022 and was now wanted by authorities.

    Shocking video captured the moment a Brooklyn school bus aide was sucker-punched as she was walking down a street — knocking out her teeth and leaving her with a broken jaw that had to be wired shut. Dulche Pichardo, 57, said she was commuting home from work at about 5 p.m. Tuesday when a stranger took a swing at her on the sidewalk of Grand Avenue near Dean Street in Crown Heights. “He just punched me on the right side here, very strong,” Pichardo told PIX11, adding that the brute never said a word. The disturbing surveillance footage shows her...

    After several women came forward on TikTok saying they had been randomly punched in the face by strangers, the NYPD has made an arrest — though it's not clear if the suspect is believed to be connected to any of the claims on social media. Police arrested Skiboky Stora, 40, of Brooklyn, on Wednesday after a 23-year-old woman reported to police that on Monday morning, a stranger had struck her, the NYPD confirms to PEOPLE in a statement. “The victim fell to the ground and suffered injuries to the left side of her face,” they said in the statement. Stora...

Stora, an aspiring rapper who unsuccessfully ran for mayor, governor and City Council over the past three years, appears to maintain ten different TikTok accounts, which were viewed by The Post and document his...

    Via TikTok "Papa Biden" is paving the streets with gold for illegal immigrants, brags Leonel Moreno, a Venezuelan illegal immigrant who is recruiting people to come to the US.

    Let’s not pretend this is about countering communist China or protecting Americans. It’s about using CCP tactics here at home.Given all we know now about how U.S. intelligence agencies conspire with Big Tech firms and nongovernmental cutouts to spy on and manipulate U.S. citizens, together with what the Twitter Files revealed last year about how the FBI and DHS deputized social media companies to censor Americans and throttle free speech, you’d think lawmakers who ostensibly care about the First Amendment would balk at expanding the online censorship industry’s reach in the United States.But you’d be wrong. Last week in Washington...

  • Reporter Leaves Out Key Facts in Hit Piece on Libs of TikTok

    Vice News published a story last fall asserting that Libs of TikTok, the popular social media account run by Chaya Raichik, was responsible for a rise in school bomb threats. The reporter, Tess Owen, wrote that “bomb threats targeting schools or school districts following Libs of TikTok posts appears to be a particularly ominous escalation.” She then cited a “disturbing pattern” from 11 school districts. Newly obtained emails, released Thursday by Raichik, suggest that Owen wasn’t completely truthful in her reporting. In a post on X, Libs of TikTok claimed Vice News and Owen “knowingly withheld critical information about me...

    @TuckerCarlson This is Rep. Dan Crenshaw as he walks out of the Capitol after voting to give Joe Biden the power to shut down news sites that dare to challenge him. Crenshaw tells reporter Liam Cosgrove that U.S. intel agencies don’t meddle in domestic news coverage, when of course he knows that’s untrue. Watch his face as he says it. Liar. @DanCrenshawTX Tucker lying for attention, as usual. Maybe since he lost his production assistants at Fox News he can no longer do basic research or read short legislation.

    Why the TikTok Ban is So Dangerous Did they tell you the part about giving the president sweeping new powers? It’s funny how things work. Last year at this time, Americans overwhelmingly supported a ban on TikTok. Polls showed a 50-22% overall margin in support of a ban and 70-14% among conservatives. But Congress couldn’t get the RESTRICT Act passed. >As the public learned more about provisions in the bill, and particularly since the outbreak of hostilities in Gaza, the legislative plan grew less popular. Polls dropped to 38-27% in favor by December, and they’re at 35-31% against now. Yet...

    "It’s a great business and I’m going to put together a group to buy TikTok," Mnuchin said. Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary under the Trump administration, said Thursday that he is organizing a group to buy TikTok as a bill proceeds through Congress that would force the popular social media app to either be sold or be banned. "I think the legislation should pass and I think it should be sold," Mnuchin said on CNBC's "Squawk Box," one day after the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill that would force the ByteDance, TikTok's Beijing-based parent company, to sell the...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday raised concerns about efforts to ban Chinese-owned social media app TikTok in the U.S., saying it would only serve to empower Meta ’s Facebook platform. “Without TikTok, you can make Facebook bigger, and I consider Facebook to be an enemy of the people,” *** Acknowledging his concerns around national security and data privacy over TikTok, Trump said, “there’s a lot of good and there’s a lot of bad” with the platform. “There are a lot of people on TikTok that love it.
