Trump Responds to Reports He Wanted to Shoot Missiles at Drug Cartel Factories

During a recent interview with “60 Minutes,” former Defense Secretary Mark Esper claimed President Donald Trump proposed the United States take out drug cartel operations in Mexico with missiles.

Over the weekend, President Trump responded to the allegation with “no comment” and addressed a number of other statements Esper made.

Mexican cartels operate industrial-sized methamphetamine and fentanyl labs south of the border and the product is then trafficked into the United States.

“Soldiers and police in Mexico seized an industrial-scale meth and fentanyl lab that was so big it startled investigators, federal prosecutors announced Sunday,” the Associated Press reported in October. “The lab had chemical preparation vats about two stories tall that could process 11,000 pounds (5,000 kilograms) of raw material at a time, said Felipe de Jesus Gallo of the federal Attorney General’s Office.” (Read more from “Trump Responds to Reports He Wanted to Shoot Missiles at Drug Cartel Factories” HERE)

God ‘Does Not Disown’ LGBTQ People, Pope Francis Says

Pope Francis said “God is Father and he does not disown any of his children,” telling an inquiring American Jesuit priest it is the most important thing for LGBTQ people to know about God.

The pope made his statements in what the Rev. James Martin, SJ, called “a mini-interview” that he initiated May 5.

Father Martin, whose ministry to gay Catholics has sparked controversy, had asked Francis whether the pontiff would answer “a few of the most common questions” those Catholics and their families ask him.

In his written response, Francis said “‘the style’ of God is ‘closeness, mercy and tenderness.’”

The pope also said gay Catholics should view rejection from others in the faith “not as ‘the rejection of the church,’ but instead [the rejection] of ‘people in the church.’” (Read more from “God ‘Does Not Disown’ LGBTQ People, Pope Francis Says” HERE)

Parents: Public School Carried Out Secret Gender Transitions on Children

Parents in Massachusetts are suing their kids’ school alleging that teachers and staff encouraged students to change their pronouns and names without parents’ knowledge or consent.

According to the lawsuit, parents claim that Ludlow Public Schools had a “protocol and practice of concealing from parents information related to their children’s gender identity” in middle school.

“[Efforts] to affirm a discordant student gender identity at school violates parents’ fundamental rights under the United States and Massachusetts constitutions and violates children’s reciprocal rights to the care and custody of their parents, familial privacy, and integrity,” the lawsuit reads. It was filed in a Massachusetts federal district court. (read more about the secret gender transitions HERE)

Russia’s tanks in Ukraine have a ‘jack-in-the-box’ design flaw. And the West has known about it since the Gulf war

Russian tanks with their tops blown off are just the latest sign that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine isn’t going to plan.

Hundreds of Russian tanks are thought to have been destroyed since Moscow launched its offensive, with British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace on Monday estimating it had lost as many as 580.

But Moscow’s problems go beyond the sheer number of tanks it has lost. Experts say battlefield images show Russian tanks are suffering from a defect that Western militaries have known about for decades and refer to as the “jack-in-the-box effect.” Moscow, they say, should have seen the problem coming.

The problem relates to how the tanks’ ammunition is stored. Unlike modern Western tanks, Russian ones carry multiple shells within their turrets. This makes them highly vulnerable as even an indirect hit can start a chain reaction that explodes their entire ammunition store of up to 40 shells.

The resulting shockwave can be enough to blast the tank’s turret as high as a two-story building, as can be seen in a recent video on social media. (Read more about Russia’s problem with its tanks in Ukraine HERE)

Pope Abruptly Removes Popular Conservative Bishop Who Opposed Vax, Protests Erupt

By Life Site News. Pope Francis has removed outspoken conservative Bishop Daniel Fernández Torres of the Diocese of Arecibo in Puerto Rico without formal proceedings, over allegations of disobedience and lack of collegiality with fellow Puerto Rican bishops.

The Holy See announced that Pope Francis “relieved” the Arecibo bishop from pastoral care of his diocese in a March 9 notice.

Bishop Fernández Torres, 57, a staunch defender of life and family and an opponent of COVID vaccine mandates, protested his removal as “totally unjust” in a statement Wednesday.

The bishop, who led the Diocese of Arecibo for nearly 12 years, noted that Pope Francis’ apostolic delegate to Puerto Rico verbally requested that he resign, but said that he refused to do so, as he “did not want to become an accomplice of a totally unjust action.”

“No process has been made against me,” Bishop Fernández Torres wrote, “nor have I been formally accused of anything, and simply one day the apostolic delegate verbally communicated to me that Rome was asking me to resign.” (Read more from “Pope Abruptly Removes Popular Conservative Bishop Who Opposed Vax, Protests Erupt” HERE)

Watch: Catholics, Other Christians Protest Pope’s Removal of Puerto Rican Bishop

By Life Site News. Puerto Rican Catholics and other Christians protested Pope Francis’ removal of a popular, conservative bishop in a demonstration on Sunday.

A large group of people gathered in front of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in San Juan in support of Bishop Daniel Fernández Torres, who was dismissed from the Diocese of Arecibo last week without a canonical process over allegations of disobedience to the pope. The bishop’s ousting was a direct result of his defense of conscience objections to COVID-19 shots, according to news reports.

Catholics from dioceses across the island came to testify to the bishop’s character on Sunday and demand that the pope reinstate him.

“Before becoming a bishop, he was a public defender of the faith, of the family, and a great teacher of principles and values,” organizers said. “A vigilant soldier to safeguard everyone’s freedom of conscience. An example of meekness, firmness and dignity.”

“Let them hear it here, let them hear it in Rome: Monsignor Daniel is innocent,” demonstrators chanted throughout the event. (Read more from “Watch: Catholics, Other Christians Protest Pope’s Removal of Puerto Rican Bishop” HERE)

Biden Botches a Major Detail About Who Is Firing Missiles at Civilians (VIDEO)

During remarks ahead of a meeting with his Cabinet at the White House Thursday afternoon, President Joe Biden said missiles were being fired at civilians in Russian cities. That isn’t true. Russian forces are currently firing missiles into Ukrainian cities and targeting civilians.

Russian state run media has been falsely accusing Ukraine of firing on Russian cities to justify President Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked invasion into the country, ensuring they will use Biden’s remarks to bolster their propaganda campaign.

In January Biden caused major headaches around the globe after saying a “minor incursion” by Russia into Ukraine may be acceptable. (Read more from “Biden Botches a Major Detail About Who Is Firing Missiles at Civilians” HERE)

Joe Rogan Mocks the Attacks on Him

Joe Rogan took to the stage Tuesday night in Texas for a stand-up routine and mocked the attacks on him as he reminded people not to take advice from him.

“I used to say it if [I was talking about] a Richard Pryor bit or something, I would say it in context,” Rogan told the crowd, noting the recently resurfaced video of him using the N-word multiple times. The comments were noted by the Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Wednesday.

“Somebody made a compilation of every time I said that word over 14 years and they put it on YouTube, and it turned out that was racist as f**k,” he added. “Even to me! I’m me and I’m watching it saying, ‘Stop saying it!’ I put my cursor over the video and I’m like, ‘Four more minutes?!’ . . .

Rogan also made fun of comments he made about the COVID-19 vaccine that lead artists, such as Neil Young, to boycott Spotify, the outlet noted.

“I talk shit for a living — that’s why this is so baffling to me,” the comedian shared. “If you’re taking vaccine advice from me, is that really my fault? What dumb s**t were you about to do when my stupid idea sounded better?” (Read more from “Joe Rogan Mocks the Attacks on Him” HERE)

Why Did Alan Dershowitz Push Trump for Ghislaine Maxwell Pardon?

Former Jeffrey Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz lobbied then-President Donald Trump to pardon madam Ghislaine Maxwell before she could face trial, according to a report.

The 83-year-old lawyer — himself long accused of having sex with one of late pedophile Epstein’s teen accusers — pushed for the pardon after UK media heiress Maxwell was arrested in July 2020 for the sex-trafficking crimes she was convicted of last month, the Times of London said.

The retired Harvard law professor was able to use his close ties to Trump, whom he also represented during his impeachment trial, the paper said.

One of the convicted madam’s brothers, Ian Maxwell, 65, confirmed to the UK paper that he had discussed the possibility of clemency with Dershowitz, who got Epstein his controversial wrist-slap 2008 plea deal on sex offenses with underage girls.
