Potential Trump cabinet pick accidentally reveals Homeland Security plans in photo

Homeland Security photos Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, one of Donald Trump's potential picks for Department of Homeland Security, might have accidentally revealed his would-be plans for the department to the public while meeting with the president-elect.

A photo taken by an Associated Press photographer shows Kobach shaking Trump's hand and holding a binder and papers. The papers face the camera, and, according to a report from The Topeka Capital-Journal, when zoomed in the photo reveals plans to question "high-risk" immigrants over support for Sharia law and the U.S. Constitution, as well as a bullet point that says "Bar the Entry of Potential Terrorists."


Pope Grants Priests the Right to Forgive Abortion

Pope FrancisIn a highly unusual gesture, Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely the right of Catholic priests to forgive a woman the sin of abortion, a provision he had instated in September 2015 ahead of the Vatican’s Year of Mercy that no longer required soliciting forgiveness from a bishop.

Francis closed the Holy Doors of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome this weekend, ending the Holy Jubilee Year and all of the perks and benefits that go with it. With his decree Monday, priests can now continue to forgive abortion during a confession by a Catholic woman if she is deemed duly repentant for her sins.


Oldest Remaining Tuskegee Airman Dies

Oldest remainingTuskegee airman diesThe oldest remaining member of the Tuskegee Airmen has died. Willie Rogers of St. Petersburg, Fla., died Friday from complications of a stroke. He was 101. Rogers served in logistics and administration as part of the US Armed Forces' first all-black aviation squadron during World War II, but only revealed that fact to family members in 2012, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

He received a Congressional Gold Medal a year later, some six years after the Tuskegee Airmen were initially honored at the White House. Though Rogers was shot by German soldiers during a military mission in 1943, "he would always say there were many who deserved attention more, but were not here to receive it," says daughter Veronica Williams.
