Pope Francis and President Trump Meet For The First Time At The Vatican

President Donald Trump met Pope Francis for the first time at the Vatican Wednesday morning, where the two men exchanged gifts and pleasantries inside the Apostolic Palace after meeting privately for nearly half an hour. “Thank you so much,” Trump told the Pope. “It’s a very great honor.”   After the meeting, Trump added, “Thank you. Thank you. I won’t forget what you said.” The pope gifted Trump with a medal designed by a Roman artist in the shape of an olive, which he said represented peace and had signed personally for him. “We can use peace,” Trump said. “That’s so beautiful.” Meanwhile, Trump gave the pope a first-edition set of writings from Martin Luther King Jr. and a bronze sculpture created by an American artist who lives in Florida. The president was joined by Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, who were both wearing black dresses with black veils, his

Britain raises threat level to ‘Critical’, Warning of imminent attack

MANCHESTER, England — As officials looked for accomplices of a suicide bomber and Britain’s prime minister warned another attack could be “imminent,” thousands of people poured into the streets of Manchester in a defiant vigil Tuesday for victims of a blast at a pop concert — the latest apparent target of Islamic extremists seeking to rattle life in the West. The attack left at least 22 dead, including an 8-year-old girl, shattering the revelry at a show by American singer Ariana Grande, where strains of electric pop and the sways of innocent young fans quickly gave way to an explosion, a flood of screams and a stampede of panicked concert-goers, many clutching pink balloons and wearing the kitten-ear headbands popularized by Grande. Touching on that disconnect, British Prime Minister Theresa May said: “We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not

Students explain the walk out on Mike Pence during Notre Dame speech

Two students who took part in the walk out as Vice President Mike Pence began to give a commencement address at the University of Notre Dame on Sunday told CNN that they did so because the vice president made them feel “unsafe.” Luis Miranda and Aniela Tyksinski, two of the Notre Dame graduates who organized the walkout, told CNN host Brooke Baldwin on Monday that the walkout happened because many students and family members “have been specifically targeted” by Pence and his policies. “We felt the need to walk out because we wanted to stand here to protect human dignity,” Miranda said. “We wanted to have solidarity with those who are most vulnerable of us, and also to seek justice for them.” “We essentially have classmates, family members, and friends who were either with us sitting down there, or were also in the stands who have been specifically targeted by the

‘The View’ Doesn’t Miss a Chance to call out President Trump

The View today didn’t miss a beat when it came to criticizing the President and his reaction to the Manchester attacks today. This time though, Trump has it 100% correct. This is a group of people who will strap a bomb to their chest and kill themselves before they would dishonor themselves. Being called a “loser” is worse in their eyes than death. This attack to 22 lives of innocent children Trump said the following: “I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack and to the many killed and the families — so many families of the victims.” “We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom. So many young beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.” “I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great

Terrorist Targeting Kids to Raise the Stakes

Today even Glenn Beck of TheBlaze spoke about how hard the TV was to turn on and what the coverage of this horrific event.   We all hope the targeting of kids and young children today was just a circumstance of opportunity, however many experts are calling this a new direction.   Constant coverage of attack after attack has made some numb to the idea of more death.  Are they now upping their game to target children to invoke new fears and reactions? On “Glenn” today, Glenn Beck and the Think Tank panel discussed the carnage and aftermath of the Islamic State terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that killed 22 people and injured dozens more. Most of the victims were young girls. Glenn noted that terrorists sometimes target children when their chosen enemy has gone numb from previous assaults. He recalled a horrific Chechen attack

Sean Hannity: ‘I retracted nothing!’ after Fox News retracts Seth Rich story

Fox News host Sean Hannity has been in the hot seat with liberals over his coverage of a controversial story many on the left are calling a conspiracy theory. On his radio show Tuesday he angrily and defiantly said he would press on, despite Fox News pulling one of their articles on the story. “Just to close the circle here,” he said, “I never, I – the family’s actually on the internet saying they want to find the truth. I, I, feel so badly for this family and what they have been through, and what they are going through, and my thoughts and prayers are with them.” “This issue is so big now,” Hannity continued. “That the entire Russia-collusion narrative is hanging by a thread, if in fact, take Seth out of it – there was a whistleblower within the DNC, a truth-teller, that actually was the source for WikiLeaks

CNN terror analyst suggests that Manchester bombing was a right-wing false flag. Outrage follows.

CNN Terror Analyst Paul Cruickshank while reporting live on Anderson Cooper’s “AC360” on Monday night as the Manchester Bombing’s details were unfolding, during his report noted that the right has been trying to frame Islamists for acts of terrorism. Cruickshank suggested that though there was evidence of a suicide bomber — confirmed by authorities later that night, and named by law enforcement as 22-year-old Salman Abedi on Tuesday — it couldn’t be confirmed because of purported right-wing plots to sabotage Islamists. “It must also be noted that in recent months in Europe, there’s been a number of false flag plots where right wing have been trying to blame Islamists for terrorism,” Cruickshank noted and added that “we have seen that in Germany in recent weeks.” ISIS claimed responsibility for the bombing on Tuesday, issuing a statement that read, “One of the soldiers of the caliphate placed explosive devices in a

Opinion: Which is more important – not hurting Muslims’ feelings, or our children being blown up?

The photos and the video and the sounds have become all too familiar. A flash of light – a massive explosion – horrified screams of the dying and wounded. This time in Manchester, England – at a concert filled with young teenagers and their parents. What was supposed to be a night of music and dancing and childhood frivolity – ended in carnage. “Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible,” President Trump said. “Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity.” An untold number of children and their parents were massacred by Islamic radicals – killed in the name of the religion of peace. In response – there have been candlelight vigils and calls for peace and understanding – but the Muslim jihadists do not want peace. They want death. The Islamic radicals will not stop until they have killed every last one of us —

UK terror threat level raised to ‘critical,’ another attack may be imminent after Manchester attack

DEVELOPING: British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday that the country’s terror threat level has been raised to its highest level in the wake of the deadly attack at a Manchester Ariana Grande concert, signifying that another attack may be imminent. “The threat level should be increased, for the time being, from severe to critical,” May said, adding the assessment is “a further attack may be imminent.” Raising the country’s threat level means that armed military personnel will replace police officers at some public events, such as sports matches, according to May. “It is a possibility we cannot ignore, that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack,” she added. Based on intelligence provided by the British, a U.S. government official told Fox News the evidence points to a suspect who was “coached or trained on line or in person” to carry out the attack.
