Kate and the Fellas Are Back And Talkin Butt Chuggin
Russia Strikes Children's Hospital In a tragic event, Russian missiles targeted Ukrainian cities, resulting in the deaths of at least 36 people and injuring over 149. Among the damaged buildings was the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, one of Ukraine’s largest cancer treatment centers for children. The attack destroyed several hospital units, leaving many trapped under the rubble. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the attack, calling for an emergency UN Security Council meeting. As international outrage grows, the incident adds urgency to the upcoming NATO summit, where leaders are expected to discuss further support for Ukraine. Pay Us Back 20 Years Later Vernon Reffitt, a former Army soldier who received a $30,000 lump-sum separation benefit in 1992, is now being asked to repay the amount. This demand comes 30 years later, as the VA has started withholding his monthly disability compensation. Reffitt’s case highlights a little-known law affecting thousands of veterans, requiring the repayment of separation benefits before receiving disability payments. Advocates argue that this law blindsides veterans, depriving them of deserved benefits. Legislation has been proposed to address this issue, but many veterans, like Reffitt, are currently struggling with the financial burden. Butt Funnel in a Small Town A scandal has erupted in Waycross, Georgia, following a viral video of an after-hours party at Rodeo Mexican Restaurant. The video shows a group of partiers attempting a "margarita butt-funnel-turned-butt-luge," leading to a public outcry in the conservative town. The restaurant issued a statement and is cooperating with authorities in an investigation. Despite the backlash, many locals and online commenters find the incident humorous, though it raises questions about public behavior and privacy in small communities.

Kristi Noem Loves Shooting Dogs And Lying
An American soldier is being held by Russian authorities on charges of criminal misconduct, Army officials confirmed Monday. The Associated Press cited U.S. officials who said the soldier, Staff Sgt. Gordon Black, 34, was stationed in South Korea and was in the process of returning home to Fort Cavazos in Texas. Instead, officials said Black, who is married, traveled to Russia to see a longtime girlfriend and was accused of theft. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss personnel details, according to The Associated Press. In a statement, Army spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said the service member was arrested on May 2 by Russian authorities in Vladivostok. She did not provide any information about the soldier’s identity or reasons for being in Russia. “The Russian Federation notified the U.S. Department of State of the criminal detention in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations,” she said. “The Army notified his family and the U.S. Department of State is providing appropriate consular support to the soldier in Russia.” The Associated Press reported the Russian woman had lived in South Korea, and last fall she and Black got into some type of domestic dispute or altercation, according to officials. After that, she left South Korea. It isn’t clear if she was forced to leave or what, if any, role Korean authorities had in the matter.You can find every episode of this show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or YouTube.

Air Force Member Sets Himself On Fire In Protest
A U.S. service member has died after setting himself on fire Sunday outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., authorities confirmed Monday. A video posted online showed the man shouting "Free Palestine" as he burned during the incident, which lasted about a minute before law enforcement officers extinguished the flames at about 1pm. The man appeared to be in military uniform and identified himself as "an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force." Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek confirmed via email Sunday evening that "an active duty Airman was involved in today's incident." The Israeli Embassy said in a statement that none of its staff was injured and all were safe. The latest: The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said in a statement Monday that after first responders arrived on the scene the man was "transported by DC Fire and EMS to a local hospital where he later died." Police identified the man as Aaron Bushnell, 25, of San Antonio, Texas. An investigation of the incident is ongoing, MPD said. In the video of the incident, Bushnell said he would "no longer be complicit in genocide," which the Israeli military was accused of committing in Gaza in an International Court of Justice case brought by South Africa. "I am about to engage in an extreme act of protest." The MPD said in a post to X that its Explosive Ordnance Disposal was called to the 3500 block on International Drive in northwest D.C. "in reference to a suspicious vehicle that may be connected to the individual," but it later reported that no hazardous materials had been found.You can find every episode of this show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or YouTube.
