Palestinian militants fired a rocket into southern Israel for the first time in months on Monday in another escalation after clashes at a sensitive holy site in Jerusalem, a series of deadly attacks inside Israel and military raids across the occupied West Bank.

Pence Says He'd Tell a Family Member Who Came Out as Gay, 'I Love You'

Former Vice President Mike Pence echoed the words of Jesus and told a gathering of college students and supporters last week he would love a family member who came out as gay.

Speaking April 12 at the University of Virginia, Pence acknowledged his differences with the LGBT community on the issue of same-sex marriage and religious liberty, but said he is driven by his faith to love those who believe differently from him.

During a question-and-answer session, Pence was asked how he would respond if “one of your children came out to you as gay.”

The question drew applause, as did Pence’s answer.

“I’d look them in the eye and tell them ‘I love you,’” he responded before addressing the individual who asked the question. “... If we got to...More

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his forces not to storm the last remaining Ukrainian stronghold in the besieged city of Mariupol on Thursday but instead to block it "so that not even a fly comes through.”

His defense minister, Sergei Shoigu, said the rest of the city beyond the sprawling Azovstal steel plant where Ukrainian forces were holed has been “liberated” — as Russian officials refer to areas of Ukraine they have seized. Putin hailed that as a “success.”

But leaving the plant in Ukrainian hands robs the...More

Elon Musk Buys Twitter for $44 Billion

Elon Musk Buys Twitter for $44 Billion

Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter was widely applauded this week by Christian and social conservative communities, with many expressing hope that the acquisition will lead to a more free and open exchange of certain ideas that – in the past – have led some individuals to be banned.

Musk purchased the social media site for $44 billion.

In recent months, Twitter has placed severe restrictions on what can be said about biological sex and transgenderism, essentially prohibiting users from stating what Scripture teaches.

Concerned Women for America celebrated the news, noting that its CEO, Penny Nance, had her Twitter account locked for calling Penn swimmer Lia Thomas a "man." Thomas is a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman.

Russia pounded targets from practically one end of Ukraine to the other Thursday, including Kyiv, bombarding the city while the head of the United Nations was visiting in the boldest attack on the capital since Moscow's forces retreated weeks ago.

At least one person was killed and several were injured in the attack on Kyiv, including some who were trapped in the rubble when two buildings were hit, rescue officials said.

The bombardment came barely an hour after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a...More

Musk Points to 'Incredibly Inappropriate' Twitter Censorship of Hunter Biden Story

Musk Points to 'Incredibly Inappropriate' Twitter Censorship of Hunter Biden Story

Now that billionaire Elon Musk appears to have the green light to buy Twitter for $44 billion, there's a lot of chatter about what the sale will mean for the social media platform's future.

Musk is making noise about free speech online and how the company has not been living up to its potential. As a self-proclaimed "free speech absolutist," Musk has been critical of Twitter's picking and choosing which posts get deleted or otherwise censored. His involvement is welcomed by those accusing the platform of censorship while making its defenders uneasy.

With around 200 million users worldwide, the deal could re-shape social media. "Twitter has become kind of a de facto town square," said Musk.

War in Ukraine Sparks Fears of Global Wheat Shortage

War in Ukraine Sparks Fears of Global Wheat Shortage

Spring is in full bloom across Ukraine and the winter wheat will soon be ready for harvest. The Russian invasion, however, has everyone focused on mere survival, and the fighting will likely ensure much of this wheat never gets harvested. And the wheat stored in silos near Odesa can't make it to market because of Russia's blockade of ports on the Black Sea.

That bodes poorly for many countries that rely on Ukrainian wheat for survival. In Lebanon, it's estimated the country will be out of grain in less than two months.

"The impact of the Ukraine war on Lebanon is going to be, unfortunately, multifaceted and we have seen that already, not only in the wheat supply that is coming into the country but even calls to our hot line for families looking for...More

Putin Apologizes for Russian Diplomat’s ‘Hitler Comments,’ Israel Says

Russian President Vladimir Putin apologized to Israel for comments made by his foreign minister claiming that Hitler had Jewish ancestry during a phone call Thursday with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Tensions flared between Israel and Russia this week after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov erroneously claimed that Hitler was Jewish to justify Moscow’s war against Ukraine, whose president, Volodymyr Zelensky, is a Jew. When Israel condemned the comments and demanded an apology, Russia doubled down and accused Israel of supporting Neo-Nazis in Ukraine.

A readout released by Bennett’s office after the call said he “accepted President Putin's apology for Lavrov’s remarks and thanked him for clarifying his attitude towards the Jewish...More

A third rescue operation is underway in Mariupol to help the remaining Ukrainian civilians trapped inside a besieged steel plant, the Red Cross told CBS News. Ukraine's military says Russian troops are now inside the plant — the last stronghold of the city's defenders.

Hundreds of civilians remain trapped in the middle of what has become a fight to the death at the steel works in Mariupol. The civilian rescue operation is underway following the successful evacuation of more than 400 civilians...More

Amazon.com, Inc., the second-largest private employer in the country, announced Monday it will pay U.S. employees up to $4,000 in travel expenses for non-life-threatening treatments and procedures, including abortions.

According to Reuters, Amazon is not alone in its pro-abortion offering. Other companies offering similar reimbursements include Yelp, Inc., and Citigroup, Inc. The corporate actions are in response to Republican-led states whose lawmakers have approved so-called “trigger laws” that will ban abortions should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn the precedent established by Amazon.com, Inc., the second-largest private employer in the country, announced Monday it will pay U.S. employees up to $4,000 in travel expenses for...More

Dozens of Ukrainians were feared dead Sunday after a Russian bomb destroyed a school sheltering about 90 people in the basement as Moscow's invading forces kept up their barrage of cities, towns and villages in eastern and southern Ukraine.

The governor of Luhansk province, one of two areas that make up the eastern industrial heartland known as the Donbas, said the school in the village of Bilohorivka caught fire after Saturday's bombing. Emergency crews found two bodies and rescued 30 people, he...More

US Government in Race Against Time to Protect America from Threat Posed by Super Computers

US Government in Race Against Time to Protect America from Threat Posed by Super Computers

America is in a race against time to protect our most carefully guarded secrets against a growing threat. It's called quantum computing and it involves supercomputers that can quickly break through secure encryption codes.

Encryption algorithms allow us to keep sensitive information secure when taking care of business or shopping online. Breaking these codes is nearly impossible, allowing governments and private citizens alike to depend on them.

But the emergence of quantum computers could put an end to that security.

"Imagine you have a computer that can try every combination and can try hundreds and hundreds of thousands of these combinations in a matter of seconds. Well, they'll be able to break through...More

With gas prices, food costs and other basic necessities continuing to soar, President Biden is addressing the growing crisis in a White House speech on Tuesday.

According to AAA, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline is hitting a new record high at $4.37, up 23 cents from last month. Some analysts predict an average price as high as $4.50 by summer.

And it's not just fuel.

Sri Lanka's military evacuated outgoing Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa from his official residence in Colombo in an early morning operation on Tuesday, hours after the leader resigned and protesters tried to storm his home.

The Russian finance ministry is predicting a 12pc collapse in GDP this year, the biggest contraction since 1994 when it was shifting towards capitalism under Boris Yeltsin, the first post-Soviet president.

A collapse would wipe out around a decade of economic growth.

Elon Musk Says He'll Let Trump Back on Twitter: Banning Him Was 'Morally Wrong'

Elon Musk Says He'll Let Trump Back on Twitter: Banning Him Was 'Morally Wrong'

Businessman Elon Musk said Tuesday he will lift the Twitter ban on former President Donald Trump after the deal for purchasing the company becomes final, saying a permanent ban on users is morally wrong.

Trump was banned from Twitter in January 2020 following the attack on the U.S. capitol.

"I would reverse the permanent ban," Musk said. "I don't own Twitter yet. So this is not like a thing that will definitely happen, because what if I don't own Twitter?"

Musk called Twitter's ban on Trump a "mistake" and noted that Trump has since started his own social media network, Truth Social. Banning Trump, Musk said, "alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Trump not having a voice."

Many social media users on the Right,...More

Ukraine's natural gas pipeline operator on Wednesday stopped Russian shipments through a key hub in the east of the country, while its president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said Kyiv's military had made small gains, pushing Russian forces out of four villages near Kharkiv.

The pipeline operator said Russian shipments through its Novopskov hub, in an area controlled by Moscow-backed separatists, would be cut beginning Wednesday. It said the hub handles about a third of Russian gas passing through Ukraine to Western Europe. Russia’s state-owned natural gas giant Gazprom put the figure at about a...More

Pro-Life Senators Block 'Radical' Abortion Bill that Would Overturn 500 Pro-Life Laws

Pro-Life Senators Block 'Radical' Abortion Bill that Would Overturn 500 Pro-Life Laws

A coalition of pro-life and moderate senators teamed up Wednesday to block a Biden Administration-backed bill that would have ensured abortion remains legal nationwide even if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

It was the second vote on the bill this year, but the first since a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion indicated the justices may overturn the landmark 1973 decision.

Needing 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, the bill received only 49, failing 49-51.

Every Republican opposed the bill, including two pro-choice GOP senators: Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Susan Collins (ME), who called the bill extreme. All but one member of the Democratic caucus supported the bill. That lone Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin (WV),...More

Money and Fame Are 'Not Going to Satisfy You,' Tim Tebow Tells Graduates

Money and Fame Are 'Not Going to Satisfy You,' Tim Tebow Tells Graduates

Football analyst and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow urged graduates of Trine University Saturday to make a positive difference in others' lives and not to get caught up in worldly pursuits, telling them that money and fame won't bring true satisfaction.

Some of the most famous people in the world, he said, aren't happy.

"The world is going to tell you over and over again [that] what you need to pursue is money, fame, power, praise promotion, platform – all of these things," Tebow said at the commencement of Trine University in Angola, Indiana. "You know what? I've been fortunate at times to have some of them. And I know a lot of people that have a lot of them. And some of the most empty people I know, have the most. It's not going to satisfy you. It's not going to...More

Elon Musk says Twitter deal is "temporarily on hold"

Elon Musk says Twitter deal is

Elon Musk said Friday that his planned $44 billion purchase of Twitter is "temporarily on hold" pending details on spam and fake accounts on the social media platform, another twist amid signs of internal turmoil over the proposed acquisition.

In a tweet, the Tesla billionaire linked to a Reuters story from May 2 citing a financial filing from Twitter that estimated false or spam accounts made up fewer than 5% of the company's "monetizable daily active users" in the first quarter.

"Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users," Musk said, indicating he's skeptical that the number of inauthentic accounts is that low.

Siege of Mariupol over as Russia says Ukraine's holdout forces from steelworks have "surrendered"

Siege of Mariupol over as Russia says Ukraine's holdout forces from steelworks have "surrendered"

Efforts were underway Tuesday to evacuate the last of the Ukrainian forces who spent weeks holed-up inside the Azovstal steel plant in the ruined port city of Mariupol. Ukrainian officials said the fighters had "completed their mission" and there was no way the country's forces could free the plant from Russia's grasp by military means.

Russia called it a surrender, and there was no doubt that Moscow and its proxy forces in Ukraine were in full control of the strategic southern port city — even if much of it has been razed to the ground.

McDonald's selling its Russian business

McDonald's selling its Russian business

McDonald's said Monday that it's started the process of selling its Russian business, which includes 850 restaurants that employ 62,000 people, making it the latest major Western corporation to exit Russia since it invaded Ukraine in February.

The fast-food giant pointed to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war, saying holding onto its business in Russia "is no longer tenable, nor is it consistent with McDonald's values."

The Chicago-based company announced in early March that it was temporarily closing its stores in Russia but would continue to pay employees. On Monday, it said it would seek to have a Russian buyer hire those workers and pay them until the sale...More

In Major Shift, Russian Forces Reportedly Open Fire on Israeli Pilots in Syria

Russian forces opened fire on Israeli fighter jets while they were allegedly carrying out airstrikes in Syria last week, Israel’s Channel 13 News reported on Monday.

Syrian state media said Israeli missiles targeted the town of Masyaf during the alleged airstrikes, killing five people – including a civilian – and injuring seven others. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitor, said the Israeli fighter jets hit weapons depots and sites belonging to Iranian militias during Friday’s...More

Israel to Drop COVID-19 Test Mandate for Incoming Travelers


On Monday, Israel's Ministry of Health announced that starting on Friday, May 20, passengers traveling to Israel through Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport will no longer be required to take a PCR test or undergo mandatory isolation upon their arrival.

Starting on May 24, all travelers – Israeli or foreign – will also no longer be required to test negative on a COVID-19 PCR or antigen test before flying into Israel. As reported by the Associated Press, the new ordinances also apply to land and sea crossings into Israel.

Despite a spike in COVID-19 cases, Israel scrapped the testing requirements due to low morbidity rates.

According to Israeli news site Ynet, the Health Ministry is also considering lifting quarantine requirements for COVID-19 patients.
