Army Chaplain Under Investigation For Sending Pro-Life Message To Troops

The Army has launched an inquiry into a 157th Infantry Brigade chaplain who sent an email to troops celebrating the Dobbs V. Jackson Women’s Health Supreme Court decision that allowed states to regulate abortion, Army Times reported Monday.

The Army is investigating whether the email sent by Maj. Brian T. Hargis, a chaplain and coach at First Army Camp Atterbury, Indiana, to his entire unit violated rules about what chaplains can say in a professional capacity, according to Army Times. Hargis’ email contained an explicitly pro-life message, Task and Purpose originally reported.

“This is a monumental victory of the highest spiritual context, as it upholds the sanctity of life of the unborn, honors the US Constitution, makes right the wrong of 1973, and ends the murder of millions of people,” Hargis, a former Green Beret, wrote, according to Task and Purpose. “REJOICE AND CELEBRATE!” Source: Daily Caller

EU Renews Digital Covid Pass Despite 99% Negative Public Feedback

Acting on a proposal of the European Commission, the European Parliament, as expected, voted yesterday to renew the EU Digital Covid Certificate for another year. The vote was 453 for, 119 against and 19 abstentions.

The certificate regulation had been scheduled to expire on June 30. Earlier this month, a delegation from the parliament had already reached a “political agreement” with the Commission on renewing the certificate, thus making yesterday’s vote virtually a foregone conclusion.

The certificate regulation was originally adopted in June of last year, ostensibly to facilitate “safe travel” between EU member states. But the EU digital certificate quickly evolved into the model and sometimes infrastructure for the domestic “health” or Covid passes that would serve to restrict access to many other areas of social life over the following year.

Will Netanyahu Come Back into Power?

“There are individual members of the Knesset that can break away from their party and we’re seeing that in Yamina. That’s what brought down the government in the first place. It’s Naftali Bennett’s co-members of parliament [who] abandoned him. So if that happens and Netanyahu could put together 61 [seats in Israel’s 120-seat parliament], it’s still possible that Israel can avoid elections.”

Birx: Biden Admin. Was ‘Hoping’, Not Lying, When It Said Vaccines Would Stop COVID Spread

Dr. Deborah Birx testified before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis when she was pressed by Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan about whether the government had lied about COVID-19 vaccines.

VP Harris Says Supreme Court’s 2nd Amendment Decision Defies the Constitution

Fauci Warns Americans: ‘Wear a Mask When You’re Indoors — This Outbreak Isn’t Over Yet’

“Hopefully the more people that get vaccinated and boosted and the more people that realize the importance of when you have a high level of viral dynamics that when you’re in an indoor setting you should wear a mask, even though the whole world including the United States and the UK are just worn out and tired by this outbreak — it isn’t over yet,” Fauci said.

Fauci continued, “People need to realize it is never going to go back to zero. That’s not the nature of this virus.”
