( – Former President Donald Trump recently spoke out about the mental health crisis in America.

During his town hall on CNN, Trump told moderator Kaitlan Collins that the United States doesn’t need to focus on gun control, but instead needs a strong focus on mental health and hardening schools.

The CNN moderator asked Trump if there were “any new gun restrictions” he would sign into law if he is President again in 2024.

Trump said, “I would do numerous things, for instance, schools, we would very much harden. And also … I believe in teachers. I love teachers. I think they’re incredible and they love the children, not quite like the parents, but in many cases, almost as much. Many of these teachers are soldiers, ex-soldiers, ex-policeman, they are people that really understand weapons.”

Trump said that having just five percent of the teachers armed “would be more than you could ever have if you were going to hire security guards.”

Trump did say, however, that adding security guards in addition to arming teachers would be part of his approach to hardening schools and also, “hardening your entrances.”

Trump added, “And you can make other places safe, but it is a big mental health problem in this country more than anything else.”

He then explained why his focus would not be on new restrictions. Trump said that there are hundreds of millions of guns in this country and that many Americans, “if they don’t have a gun, they’re not going to be very safe.”

“On April 14, 2023, President Trump told the NRA Leadership Forum that he would sign legislation as president to institute national reciprocity for concealed carry permit holders. This would mean a concealed carry license from one state would be recognized by the 49 other states, just like a driver’s license or marriage license,” reported Breitbart.

Trump has also pledged a tax credit for teachers who train to be armed.

( – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott just dumped another busload of illegals at Vice President Kamala Harris’ house on Thursday morning.

More than 30 immigrants were on the bus, many of them from Venezuela.

Gary Grumbach of NBC News posted footage of, reportedly, illegals getting off the bus in front of Harris’ home, which is in Washington, D.C.

The bus was loaded with men, women and children who, upon delivery, were met by SAMU First Response and Mutual Aid volunteers.

The immigrants were then loaded onto another charter bus before being transported to a “place of refuge,” according to NBC News.

Washington hasn’t received a bus from Texas in months.

No doubt, the gift was a reminder to the vice president that whatever happens to the border towns when Title 42 expires, D.C. will feel, too.

According to a Wednesday tweet from the governor, Texas has bused more than 17,000 migrants to “sanctuary cities.”

Cities such as D.C., New York, Chicago and Philadelphia.

“The reason we are busing these migrants across the country, is because small little towns on the border, like Del Rio and Eagle Pass, they have no capacity to deal with the number of people coming across the border.

“And we have to relieve the congestion in those small communities and bus them to larger communities — by the way, communities that are sanctuary cities,” Abbott said in a Fox News interview featured in his tweet.

The sad truth is, no matter how many buses Texas sends to D.C., it will be nothing compared to the strain Brownsville, El Paso and other Texas border towns are already experiencing.

( – Americans are learning much more about the disturbing level of corruption under the Obama administration that led to millions in cash for top Democrat families.

Obama’s net worth increased from $1.3 million going into the White House to $70 million today — all while earning a $400,000 salary as president. Obama conveniently enriched himself as well as the Bidens and other political leaders by being compliant and turning a blind eye to the Democrats’ international criminal schemes.

Under Obama, the Clinton Foundation ignored the federal and state accounting rules that legitimate charities must follow. Obama also put Biden in charge of U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine and Russia which allowed the Biden family to rake in cash.

Obama knew that Hunter was being paid $50,000 a month by Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma while his father, Vice President Biden, oversaw U.S. relations with Ukraine. Obama did nothing about it.

In 2018, Biden explained that he pressed then-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko to fire the country’s top prosecutor who was then investigating Hunter Biden’s financial arrangement with Burisma.

If not, Biden threatened to withdraw a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee.

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion,’” Biden recalled. “I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’”

“Well son of a b****, he got fired,” Biden cheerfully said. “And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

( – An attorney who is claiming that the FBI “utterly failed” to properly investigate the late billionaire financier and convicted underage sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has asked the Justice Department to find out why.

A letter from the attorney, who is representing several women, was sent last week to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, stating that the FBI was aware of allegations against Epstein back in the 1990s but failed to take any significant action, the Daily Wire reported.

“As counsel to many survivors of the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking conspiracy, we write regarding the failure of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to properly, adequately, or timely investigate the sex trafficking of hundreds of girls and young women,” says the letter from lawyer Jennifer Freeman.

“The FBI utterly failed to investigate serious allegations involving Epstein’s, and perhaps others’, child sex abuse materials (CSAM), significant additional criminality which, until recently, has been disregarded, disrespected, and essentially denied,” it added.

“In August of 1996 one of our clients, Maria Farmer, reported to the FBI that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell had sexually abused her and that the two of them, together with others, were committing multiple, serious, sexual abuse crimes, including hands-on sexual abuse, against minors and vulnerable young women,” the letter continues. “In addition, she reported to the FBI that Epstein, and perhaps others, appeared to be engaged in the production, possession, and distribution of sexually suggestive or exploitative images of children that could constitute CSAM.”

“In 2005, child erotica was found in Epstein’s Palm Beach home. In approximately 2008, law enforcement “prematurely” truncated their investigation of Epstein’s computer hard drives, which had been suspiciously removed from his Palm Beach estate immediately before a police raid,” the letter continued, adding: “In 2019, more child erotica was found displayed in Epstein’s properties, with additional images located in his home safe.”

The women are seeking an explanation as to why it took so long for legal action to be taken against Epstein and have requested that the DOJ investigate the FBI’s handling of the case.

Meanwhile, a December 2021 report in the National Review noted that “Epstein visited the White House 17 times during former President Clinton’s first few years in office,” according to then-nearly discovered visitor logs.

The logs, obtained by the UK’s Daily Mail under a Freedom of Information Act request, also reveal that Epstein visited the White House 14 times over a two-year period between 1993 and 1995. On three occasions, he made two visits in a single day. The majority of these visits were to the West Wing, leading to speculation that he may have met with the President during these visits.

Epstein died in jail in 2019, believed to have committed suicide.

A month earlier, in November, CNN reported that “Epstein’s former pilot testified in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial…that a who’s who of powerful men, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, flew aboard Epstein’s private plane.”

Visoski said that he was usually given advance notice when high-profile passengers, like former President Clinton, would be flying with Epstein. He also recounted that Epstein flew with renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman to the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer camp and that he remembered other notable passengers on flights, such as Prince Andrew, Maine Sen. George Mitchell, Ohio Sen. John Glenn, and actor Kevin Spacey, CNN reported.

Newsweek noted in January that a documentary aired on the BBC that month claimed that Clinton and Epstein were “like brothers.”

( – A longtime Fox News host on the hit show “The Five” is scratching his head after being told that he will not be on the program for the rest of the week.

Liberal host Geraldo Rivera took to Twitter to inform his followers that his planned appearances on the show for Thursday and Friday had been canceled.

“My appearances today and tomorrow on The Five have been canceled. I’m sure there’s a good reason. Never fear, I’ll be back week after next. Stay safe and happy. Thanks,” Rivera tweeted, adding that he would be returning to the show soon.

Fox News has been beset with uncertainty after abruptly firing top-rated host Tucker Carlson last week. There’s no indication that Rivera being taken off the schedule this week means he will be fired or removed from the show, but the timing has certainly raised some questions.

While it may not be related to his canceled appearances, Rivera came under fire in recent weeks for his comments about Carlson.

Popular Fox News host Greg Gutfeld defended Carlson twice last week, once on Twitter and another time during an episode of “The Five.”

Gutfeld took to Twitter to hit back at his colleague Rivera, who had issued some seething comments about Carlson after his departure.

Rivera tweeted: “I don’t wish ill on anybody, but there is no doubt – as I said at the time-Tucker Carlson’s perverse January 6 conspiracy theory was ‘bullsh*t.’ Having lost the election President Trump incited an insurrection that sought to undermine our Constitutional process.”

In response, Gutfeld hit back at Rivera for taking a shot at Carlson, which came across as Gutfeld was offering support to his former colleague.

“You’re a class act Geraldo. A real man of the people,” Gutfeld tweeted.

During a segment last week on “The Five,” Gutfeld joked that Carlson will run for president — and several of the hosts did not say a word.

Dana Perino took a sip of her drink, Jason Chaffetz laughed, and Jeanine Pirro immediately moved on and kicked the show over to a new segment on a different topic.

It seemed as if no one wanted to talk about Carlson or the explosive news, which could suggest that on-air hosts may have been told to not discuss the situation.

But Gutfeld was not afraid to mention Carlson and appeared defiant.

The conversation at the table began when they discussed President Joe Biden’s re-election prospects. Chaffetz predicted that even though Biden will likely announce re-election, he will ultimately not run. Biden did announce early on Tuesday morning that he is running for a second term.

( – The Kremlin is claiming that an audacious attack by two drones was carried out on Wednesday night with the aim of assassinating Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the country’s presidential administration.

Describing the incident as a “planned terrorist attack” and “assassination attempt on the president of Russia,” the Kremlin is now threatening to take “retaliatory measures.”

The attack reportedly took place on Wednesday at around 2 a.m. local time, with residents in Moscow reporting two explosions and a subsequent power outage. Footage captured by locals shows smoke filling the sky over the Kremlin. The Russian government has alleged that the attack was orchestrated by Ukraine, with both drones having been destroyed before they could cause any harm. No injuries have been reported.

The timing of the reported drone strike, which took place just days before Russia’s Victory Day parade on Red Square, has raised concerns about the potential for further drone attacks. To guard against such a reoccurrence, Putin has ordered patrols on the streets of Moscow in search of any bombs or drones ahead of the event.

The reported drone strike follows upon Russia launching missile attacks on Kyiv in late April. Ukrainian defenses activated air defense systems and issued air raid alerts. Explosions were heard in the region, prompting the Kyiv regional administration to issue a message on Telegram stating, “Air defenses are at work!”

( – Senator Ron Johnson joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures on Sunday morning, where he dropped a political bomb to open the segment.

Senator Johnson opened up by explaining the US Senate was investigating Hunter Biden back in 2019 and 2020 but he did not have “the full support of my committee or the Republican Conference to subpoena the Bidens.” Senate Republicans REFUSED to subpoena the Bidens. They truly are on the other side.

Johnson then told Maria Bartiromo that Anthony Blinken lied to his committee under oath about contacting Hunter Biden. Blinken told Johnson’s committee he did not email Hunter Biden and now Johnson has those emails.

Johnson said, “What is interesting, Marie, and here’s a little news for you. Anthony Blinken finally did come in and sit down for a voluntary transcribed interview in December of 2020 because he wanted to be secretary of state. And now, because of more information that’s come out, we know that he lied bold face to Congress about never emailing Hunter Biden. My guess is he told a bunch of other lies that hopefully we’ll be able to bring him and his wife back in, tell them to preserve their records. You cannot trust Joe Biden. You cannot trust Hunter Biden. You can’t trust the Biden family. You can’t trust so many of the people that they have surrounded themselves with these made men. I basically agree with that statement…

…What do you do when you have, in effect, co conspirators of the Biden family inside the agencies, inside our intelligence agencies, the Department of Justice, the FBI. And you have the political party, the Democrats, who couldn’t care less, have no interest whatsoever in the corruption that is being uncovered bit by bit as we pull back the layers of the onion here… He must preserve his emails. We must get to the bottom of this. We need to show how corrupt these individuals are.”

( – President Joe Biden took questions from children and struggled to find the answers about his grandchildren, Top Gun and the last country he visited.

Surrounded by kids dressed as Secret Service agents, the 80-year-old had to rely on youngsters to finish his responses and admitted he was ‘confused’ before one eventually told him it might be time to return to the Oval Office.

It was the first interrogation since he was spotted using a cheat sheet during a press conference when responding to questions from a LA Times reporter.

Biden struggled as he was fielded questions on topics ranging from his favorite color to his preferred ice cream flavor.

What seemed to be an easy question, Biden had to second-guess himself when trying to remember where all six of his grandchildren live – and didn’t mention Hunter’s love child.

‘I left somebody out… I said five… six? I’ve got one in New York, two in Philadelphia, or is it three? Three? I don’t know… You confused me… They’re around…,’ he said. 

‘One granddaughter lives in Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia,’ Biden said, speaking slowly knowing there were children from a range of ages there. ‘One granddaughter lives in New York. One granddaughter lives in Washington. One granddaughter lives in Wilmington, Delaware. The other grandson – my grandson lives in California.’

‘But I left somebody out, didn’t I? Anyway,’ Biden said. 

He did leave one out, and that is Navy Joan Roberts, the four-year-old daughter of Hunter Biden. The child Hunter has ignored and refuses to pay child support.

Then, he turned the question into a pop quiz, going through the locations again. Philadelphia, Wilmington, and … I did say five, you’re right.’

‘One in New York, two in Philadelphia,’ he said, checking himself, before moving onto another question.

He then tripped up when a child asked what should have been an easy question; the last country he visited as president.

Instead, he mentioned how many leaders he has met as president. 

‘Last country I’ve traveled – must be the last one I was in, I’ve been to – 89 heads of state so far. 

Finally after a pause a kid yelled out ‘Ireland!’ – Biden’s ancestral homeland that he visited earlier this month. 

‘You’re right, Ireland,’ Biden responded. ‘That’s where it was.’ 

Another child asked Biden to name his favorite movie. Biden instead opted to say his favorite movie of the year – but got a little help.

‘My favorite movie was the new movie that was about that guy who flies jet planes. You know who I’m talking about?’ he asked, before a kid answered ‘Top Gun.’

‘Top Gun,’ Biden continued. Did you see Top One: Maverick?’

Biden had direct answers to other queries, saying his favorite color is blue and his favorite ice cream is chocolate chip.

He sometimes veered into discussions about NATO, diabetes and the cost of insulin, civil rights, and Russian aggression when talked about his priorities and the most important things he is dealing with as president.

He also spoke about the White House itself and the agents who protect it.

Biden at one point seemed to know he was in the danger zone. ‘I’m getting myself in trouble here, because your parents are saying when is he going to stop?’ he joked.

Biden gave his favorite rose – white – and what he had for breakfast: bacon, scrambled eggs, and cheese.

After more than 20 minutes, one child had a question that seemed to channel what her parents might have been thinking. ‘Mr. President, I heard you have to go back to the Oval Office,’ she told him. 

Just as his aides might have been catching their breath, Biden wasn’t done. While walking along the colonnade, Biden walked by a child who asked him a question about Poland.

Nina Walkuska, 10, whose father is a correspondent for Polish radio, asked the question. The president invited her and another child inside the Oval Office. She got to sit behind the Resolute Desk, and came back with a handful of cookies packaged with the seal of the U.S. President.

She said Biden said ‘a lot of great things.’ But he didn’t answer the question about Poland.

( – Tucker Carlson, the highest-rated cable news host in history, is out at Fox News. And now a new report sheds light on who made the final decision to cut ties with Carlson.

A new report reveals that Lachlan Murdoch, the chief executive of Fox Corporation, and Suzanne Scott, chief executive of Fox News Media, decided on Friday night to fire Carlson. Then, Scott informed Carlson on Monday morning of the decision.

“The power that Mr. Carlson, 53, wielded outside Fox News could not insulate him from a growing list of troubles inside the network related to his conduct on and off the air, some of which had been grating on Mr. Murdoch and his father, Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox Corporation, who co-founded the network in 1996, according to the two people with knowledge of the company’s decision,” the New York Times reported.

“The host, a polarizing and unpopular figure at the network outside of his own staff, was exposed as part of a defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems as a bully who denigrated colleagues and sources, often in profane and sexist language and called for the firing of Fox journalists whose coverage he disliked. He has also drawn condemnation from the right and left for his role in fostering a revisionist account of the assault on the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021,” the outlet added.

The NYT report then suggests Carlson’s segment detailing the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was a “point of contention.”

“One early point of contention was Mr. Carlson’s 2021 documentary, ‘Patriot Purge,’ which advanced the conspiracy theory that the attack that day was a so-called false flag operation designed to discredit the former president and his political movement. Lachlan Murdoch was said to have been caught off guard by the program, which also led two conservative Fox News contributors to quit in protest, Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes,” the NYT reported.

“In March, Mr. Carlson edited down tens of thousands of hours of footage from the attack given to him by Speaker Kevin McCarthy and used them to falsely portray the rioters as people Mr. Carlson called ‘mostly peaceful’ onlookers who had innocently ambled into the Capitol. The broadcast drew a rebuke from Senator Mitch McConnell, who is a friend of Rupert Murdoch’s and said Mr. Carlson had drawn ‘offensive and misleading conclusions,’” the outlet continued.

Fox News announced on Monday morning that Carlson and the network “have agreed to part ways” after more than a decade.

In a statement read on “Outnumbered,” host Harris Faulkner briefly stated that the network will have a series of rotating hosts to fill Carlson’s 8 p.m. slot. Fox said Carlson’s last show aired Friday and that starting Monday night, the network will have “an interim show with rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named.”

Fox released a statement on the situation.

“Carlson’s last program was Friday, April 21st, Fox News said, meaning Carlson did not get a chance to sign off to his viewers. The news comes days after Fox News reached a historic 11th-hour settlement with Dominion Voting Systems for over $787 million,” Axios reported.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor. Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday, April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named,” Fox News said in a statement.

Carlson believes he knows the reason he was fired from the network and if he is correct, it is massive news. He has not said anything to his fans, but he appears to believe that the Murdoch family is planning on selling the network, Vanity Fair reported.

“Carlson has told people he doesn’t know why he was terminated. According to the source, Scott refused to tell him how the decision was made; she only said that it was made ‘from above.’ Carlson has told people he believes his controversial show is being taken off the air because the Murdoch children intend to sell Fox News at some point,” it said.

( – Republican Kentucky Rep. James Comer, Chair of the House Oversight Committee, suspects “at least 12” Biden family members were doing business overseas.

Comer appeared on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” to go through the Oversight Committee’s findings on the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.

“So they were trying to make it look like the numbers were lower because they were disbursing money to other family members. How many family members were involved,?” Bartiromo asked.

“Well, right now we have nine, but I believe in the end the number will be at least 12. I mean, this was the Biden family influence peddling scheme. And, you know, when people say, well, they were involved in ventures around the world, I haven’t found a legitimate business on the Biden end, Maria. I’ve found legitimate businesses that were paying the LLCs that were then turning around and laundering the money back to the Bidens, but I haven’t found any legitimate business dealings on the Biden end,” Comer responded.

“It looks like if there was a legitimate business dealing in any of these LLCs, it was influence peddling. And if you want to get technical and you want to get to a legal term, that’s called being a foreign agent. They weren’t registered as a foreign agent and I’m sure the ethics laws would prevent immediate family members of high ranking government officials from being foreign agents. Either way this is bad. There are more laws that appear to me that have been broken than just tax evasion, and there are a lot more Bidens involved than just the president’s son and his brother,” Comer continued.

Federal prosecutors are reportedly considering charges against Hunter Biden, the president’s son, related to tax evasion and gun possession. The House Oversight Committee’s investigators have focused on Hunter’s involvement with Ukrainian and Chinese business entities. Payments between multiple Biden family members and business associate Rob Walker were disclosed by the committee in March. Walker provided the payments shortly after he was wired $3 million from a Chinese energy company.
