 College Anti-Israel Agitators Could Be Sent To
Gaza Under New House GOP Bill

(Fox News) — A new House Republican bill would send any person charged and convicted for illegal activity on a college campus to Gaza for at least six months.

Rep. Andy Ogles, R-Tenn., introduced the bill on Wednesday alongside Reps. Randy Weber, R-Texas, and Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., in response to the ongoing anti-Israel demonstrations on college campuses across the country.

Several of those protests have turned violent, with clashes between police and activists, as well as hundreds of activists being arrested across multiple campuses.

While Ogles' bill text does not mention Israel or the anti-Israel groups, it specifically targets unlawful activity on college campuses after Oct. 7, 2023, when Hamas militants invaded Israel in a surprise attack that killed over 1,000 people.

Dem Governor Swarmed By Anti-Israel Agitators
While Celebrating Daughter's College Graduation

(Fox News) — Democrat Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was swarmed by a group of anti-Israel protesters last week as she celebrated her daughter's college graduation at a local restaurant.

The exchange occurred at Bobcat Bonnie's, a brunch-style restaurant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, not far from the University of Michigan, when a group screaming about "genocide" in Gaza approached Whitmer.

"How do you justify genocide?" the protesters repeatedly screamed as Whitmer's security detail blocked them from coming into contact with her.

The protesters continued screaming, asking how Whitmer was able to "sleep at night," and what she was doing to help Palestinian children.

Fetterman Knocks Anti-Israel Protesters,
Says They Are ‘Working Against Peace’ In Gaza

(Fox News) — Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., called on anti-Israel demonstrators to protest against Hamas and demand that the terror group agree to a cease-fire deal as the war enters its seventh month.

Fetterman sat down Tuesday for an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier on "Special Report," where he addressed the anti-Israel protests continuing to rock college campuses nationwide.

"I'm not even sure what they're really, you know, protesting about. If you ask them, they're not really sure," he said. "They can't... and now they're not talking about cease-fires anymore, and now they're talking about divesting and harming Israel and that. It's crazy."

Several students have come out in recent weeks saying they want their colleges to divest from Israel. The University of Southern California’s Divest from Death Coalition demanded a complete academic boycott of Israel, amnesty for students, staff and faculty involved in anti-Israel protests and an end to "war-profiteering."

GM Ending Production Of Chevrolet Malibu

(Fox Business) — General Motors will cease production of its iconic Chevrolet Malibu sedan.

The move comes as the Detroit-based automaker plans to revamp the Kansas facility where it makes the Malibu so that it can produce the upcoming electric Chevrolet Bolt model there.

"To facilitate the installation of tooling and other plant modifications… GM will end production of the Chevrolet Malibu in November 2024 and pause production of the Cadillac XT4 after January 2025," a GM spokesperson told FOX Business.

The company also builds the Cadillac XT4 at its Fairfax Assembly Plant. The facility, located in the Kansas City area, will receive roughly $390 million worth of investment as part of GM's efforts to ready it for building the new Bolt.

GM has been shifting away from cars in favor of building more crossover and sport utility vehicles in recent years. The Malibu is the last remaining Chevrolet car offered in the U.S. besides the Corvette.

New Poll Shows Americans Overwhelmingly Want
Disney To Return To Family-Friendly Entertainment

(Daily Wire) — A new poll shows Americans overwhelmingly want Disney to return to family-friendly “wholesome” entertainment and stop making programming about “sexuality” and pushing its LBGTQ agenda.

In a national survey by Rasmussen Reports, 1,255 American Adults were polled by telephone and online whether they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: “Disney should return to wholesome programming and allow parents to decide when their children are taught about sexuality?”

The result found that “71% of American Adults agreed” that Disney should return to “wholesome programming” and give the power back to parents to decide when their “children are taught about sexuality.” That number included 53% who “strongly agreed” with that statement. Twenty-two percent disagreed with this sentiment and that also included 10% who “strongly disagreed.”

Another question asked those polled about Disney executive Karen Burke’s statement in 2022 – that “the company has ‘many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories” –  “Is such programming appropriate for children under age 12?”

NETHERLANDS (Daily Mail) — A teenage girl was 'loaned out' by her 'lover boy' boyfriend to be sexually abused by his friends in Belgium who filmed the attack on their phones and shared images on social media, according to reports, in a case that has shocked the country.

The 14-year-old girl was abused by ten minors on up to three occasions between April 2 and April 6 over the Easter holidays, prosecutors say.

The main suspect – the girl's 14-year-old boyfriend – is alleged to have taken the girl with him to a wooded area called Kabouterbos in Kortrijk, West Flanders. The spot is popular with mountain bikers and sits close to a highway.

Once there, the boyfriend is said to have attacked his young partner before allegedly allowing several other boys to sexually assault her as well.

Reports said the group filmed the attack on their smartphones and posted clips to social media.

FBI Issues Joint Warning On
Hackers Targeting Email Accounts

(Epoch Times) — The FBI and several U.S. agencies issued a joint cybersecurity advisory that warned of state-backed hacks using emails in a way that makes them appear to be from legitimate and trusted organizations.

In the joint statement, the FBI, U.S. Department of State, and National Security Agency (NSA) said that alleged North Korean-backed hackers linked to the communist country’s military intelligence agency, known as Kimsuky, have been using email authentication bypass to impersonate academics, journalists, and researchers.

They are now attempting to “provide stolen data and valuable geopolitical insight to the North Korean regime by compromising policy analysts and other experts,” the bulletin said.

“Successful compromises further enable Kimsuky actors to craft more credible and effective spear-phishing emails, which can then be leveraged against more sensitive, higher-value targets,” it said.

Civil Rights Leader Daisy Bates And Singer Johnny Cash
To Replace Arkansas Statues

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ABC News) — When Arkansas lawmakers decided five years ago to replace the statues representing the state at the U.S. Capitol, there was little objection to getting rid of the existing sculptures. The statues that had stood there for more than 100 years were obscure figures in the state's history.

Johnny Cash“I remember giving tours to constituents from Arkansas, to young people, and I would point out the two representatives in Statuary Hall in our United States Capitol from Arkansas,” said former Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who also served in Congress. “And they would say, ‘We’ve never heard of them.’”

Officials plan to install statues of civil rights leader Daisy Bates this week and musician Johnny Cash later this year.

Boca Bash Partier's Parents Issue Apology After
Son Caught Dumping Bins Of Trash Into Ocean

(Fox News) — The family of one of two teen boys facing felonies for dumping drums of trash into the Atlantic Ocean at Florida's annual Boca Bash issued an apology after their son turned himself in to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

Now-viral drone footage shows the teens hefting two trash bins filled with bottles and other plastics over the railing of their fishing vessel as they speed away from the boozy water gathering on April 28.

As the boat of partiers zoomed away into the choppy waters of the Boca Raton inlet, the video pans out to the spread of debris left floating in their wake. Footage from the front of the boat shows the teens waving and laughing.

The two teens, 15 and 16, according to the Miami Herald, turned themselves in to police on Friday and face third-degree felony charges for causing pollution "so as to harm or injure human health or welfare, animal, plant or aquatic life or property."

Eating Yogurt Could Help Prevent One Common Disease, According To The FDA

(Fox News) — Can incorporating yogurt into your diet keep diabetes at bay?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has implied that it’s possible.

The health agency announced in March that it will not object to a claim from Danone North America – maker of Dannon and other popular yogurt brands – that regularly eating yogurt could reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The FDA intends to allow the claim to appear on yogurt food labels, "provided that the qualified health claims are worded so as not to mislead consumers, and that other factors for the use of the claim are met."

"After reviewing the petition and other evidence related to the proposed qualified health claim, the FDA determined that there is some credible evidence supporting a relationship between yogurt intake and reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, but this evidence is limited," the FDA said in a statement.
