NORTH KOREA. Missile test fails: “A North Korean missile fired Wednesday exploded “within seconds of launch,” according to US Pacific Command. US officials confirmed North Korea had attempted to launch a missile near Kalma, on the country’s east coast, but early reports suggest it failed. ‘South Korea and the US are aware of the missile launch and to their knowledge North Korea’s missile was not successfully launched,’ South Korea’s Ministry of Defense said in a statement.”
LIBERTY UNIVERSITY. Trump to give commencement address at Falwell university: “I look forward to speaking to this amazing group of students on such a momentous occasion,” President Trump exclusively tells CBN News. Calling it an honor, the president also told us, “Our children truly are the future and I look forward to celebrating the success of this graduating class as well as sharing lessons as they embark on their next chapter full of hope, faith, optimism, and a passion for life.”
A STREETCAR NAKED DESIRE. Wheel of Fortune perv makes terrible mistake.
NO ETHICS. Michael Flynn never signed Trump pledge: “The pledge, imposed by executive order a week after President Donald Trump took office, bars all federal appointees from lobbying their former colleagues for five years after leaving the administration and bans them from lobbying on behalf of foreign governments for life. Confirmation that Flynn did not sign the pledge comes amid controversy over his lobbying last year on behalf of a company linked to the Turkish government. Flynn belatedly acknowledged that the work may have benefitted that government and notified the Justice Department’s foreign agent division months after the work took place, and after he had resigned from his White House post.”
OSAGE NATION. Tribe votes to change definition of marriage: “The tribe will now define marriage as a union between “two persons” rather than ‘a man and a woman.’ More than 1,100 people sent in absentee ballots but only 347 people showed up for onsite balloting during a two-day early voting period and on Monday, the actual election day.”

QUEENSLAND. Gay Panic defense abolished in Australian state: “The code previously enabled the measure to be used as a partial defense to murder if an unwanted sexual advance had been made toward the accused in Queensland. It was most famously used in 2008 when 45-year-old Wayne Ruks was killed by two men, Jason Pearce and Richard Meerdink, who claimed Ruks made advances at one of them.”
SOUTH CAROLINA. Judge says gay couple have been married for decades: “Now, in what legal experts and Parks’ lawyers say is a groundbreaking case for South Carolina, and possibly for other states with common law marriage, a Family Court judge in York County has ruled that Parks and her former partner had a common law marriage under state law. And the state must recognize that their common law marriage has been legal for almost 30 years, the judge ruled.”
TEXAS. LGBT march in Abilene: “Over two dozen LGBT supporters marched throughout the streets of downtown Abilene. Insperation Sanchez, a citizen of Abilene, told KRBC that the event was a great opportunity to teach her four-year-old daughter about the cause, because in her household, she doesn’t teach hate.”
