via House Committee Votes to Stop Funding Terrorism — Charisma News

The House Committee of Foreign Affairs unanimously voted Wednesday to proceed with the Taylor Force Act, which will defund the Palestinian Authority (PA) until they cease and denounce their “Pay to Slay” policy, which rewards terrorists and their families for acts against Israel and the United States. The Taylor Force Act will now advance to the Senate and House for a floor-wide vote.

Liberty Counsel and Christians in Defense of Israel have been instrumental in encouraging legislators to pass the Taylor Force Act. This legislation is named in memory of U.S. Army veteran and Vanderbilt student, Taylor Force, who served in combat deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, only to be senselessly killed as a civilian by a Palestinian terrorist in Israel.

via Very bright fireball explodes over northern Finland, sonic boom reported

A very bright fireball exploded over Lapland, northern Finland at 16:40 UTC (18:40 EET) on November 16, 2017. The event lasted between 5 and 10 seconds and was seen across northern Finland, especially Nellim, Solojärvi and Ivalo, and from northern Norway. This is 5th major fireball event within 48 hours, possibly 7th.

According to local media reports, a sonic boom was associated with today’s event. “There was a loud noise after the lights went out and the houses shook,” fireman Mauri Saniola Inari said, adding that the event was initially described as an aviation accident.

“The sound and light observations came from such a wide area that the location can’t be determined,” Inari said.

via Did the Pentagon just accidentally call on President Trump to resign on Twitter? – AOL News

A spokesperson assured that a military coup was not in the works after the Pentagon retweeted a call for President Trump to resign.

The movement to expose sexual misconduct recently reached the steps of Congress. On Thursday, radio host and former model Leeann Tweeden took it all the way to the Senate when she accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of forcing his tongue in her mouth after pressuring her into kissing him and shared a picture that was taken of him groping her breasts while she was sleeping.

NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has taken photos of a part of the red planet that once played host to huge multi-tiered falls of lava that cascaded into a crater.

via Ivanka Trump warned to stay quiet after speaking out about sexual assault allegations – AOL News

First daughter Ivanka Trump’s harsh statement about Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore drew some backlash from Breitbart this week.

Breitbart editor-in chief Alex Marlow said the first daughter and adviser should stay quiet, especially given the allegations against her father.

On Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, he implied that it wasn’t Ivanka’s place to comment.

“Right, especially when there’s been so many allegations against President Trump,” he said.
