Tennessee Lawmakers Pass Bill Targeting mRNA Vaccines In Food
The bill comes in response to a University of California-Riverside research project looking into whether mRNA which targets pathogens could be implanted into edible plants, which would then be consumed. The research was funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. “You would have to get a prescription for that to make sure that we know how much of the lettuce you have to eat based off of your body type so we don’t under-vaccinate you, which leads to the possibility of the efficacy of the drug being compromised, or we overdose you based off how much lettuce is [eaten],” said Republican state Rep. Scott Cepicky during a House committee meeting in February, WKRN-TV reports.

Pulpit Problems: 41% Of Churchgoers Find No Biblical Problem With Homosexual ‘Marriages’
Now this is very deflating that 41% of regular churchgoers do not have any biblical problems with homosexual “marriages.” Of course, to me, that is the root cause of this trend in churches, the lack of knowledge and the lack of teaching on biblical authority (which the authors of the article hint at but never actually state). In many churches, the Bible is simply taught as a book of good morals, or even worse, as positive reinforcement for not being “judgmental.”

Israel’s killing of Zahedi: Taking the fight to the Iranian head of the octopus
The Wall Street Journal termed the killing of Zahedi “the first real price” that Iran has paid “for its proxy warfare in the Middle East.” “The Iranians don’t love dying, but it is very easy for them to send others to die,” then education minister Naftali Bennett said at the Herzliya conference in 2018. “While we’re shedding blood fighting their tentacles, the octopus’s head is lounging in its chair enjoying itself,” Bennett continued. The time had come, he declared, for Israel “to aim at the head of the octopus and not its tentacles.”

Prof. Eyal Zisser: ‘We cannot be complacent after attack in Damascus’
Middle Eastern expert Prof. Eyal Zisser, from Tel Aviv University, estimates that the assassination of the senior IRGC officer Mohammad Reza Zahedi in Syria will not lead Hezbollah to intensify the attacks against Israel on the Lebanon border. “In my opinion, Hezbollah has no interest in dragging Lebanon into a full-scale war, because it was Iran who was attacked in Syria. It has no way to explain that to the Lebanese. On the other hand, we need to be prepared and ready, as developments can happen at any moment,”

Iran Threatens To Avenge Assassinated Generals
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) confirmed that seven officers, including brigadier generals Mohammad Reza Zahedi and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, were killed in the airstrike on the Iranian consulate building in Damascus on Monday. Iran has already vowed that it will take “countermeasures” against the United States and Israel over the recent deadly airstrike in Syria. Officials in Syria and Iran have blamed Israel for the attack, thereby also blaming the U.S. ruling class. Tehran is warning of a “serious response,” and the powerful Iran-backed Lebanese militant group Hezbollah said that the strike will be met with “punishment and revenge.” Iran also said it would hold the United States “answerable” due to its support of Israel. This attack has escalated regional tensions over the war in Gaza and has once again appeared to raise the risk of a broader Middle Eastern conflict. This could quickly spiral out of control, so be prepared for the advancement of war.
