Notre Dame University has canceled Joe Biden as he became the first “president” to not give the school’s commencement speech since Bill Clinton. Biden will also not receive an honorary degree.

The Biden White House told the press that Biden was invited to speak to the Catholic university’s 4,000 graduates, but now they say he won’t be attending due to a “scheduling conflict.”

The school announced that finance executive and trustee Jimmy Dunne would address the graduates instead of Biden.

President Trump also did not speak at the commencement during his first year in office in 2017 because he had a foreign policy trip to Saudi Arabia. However, he did send Vice President Mike Pence. So, the Trump administration was still represented.

Biden, however, is not sending his veep to the school.

Despite claiming he is a “devout Catholic” — and despite the unquestioning faith the press has in that claim — Biden is a rabidly pro-abortion president and has even attacked states that have recently begun passing laws with serious restrictions on abortions.

Because of his extreme views on abortion, students raised a petition to have Biden disinvited as the school’s commencement speaker.

“He rejects Church teaching on abortion, marriage, sex and gender and is hostile to religious liberty,” the students and alumni said in the petition. “He embraces the most pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty public policy program in history.”

The petition continued saying Bidens “actions already taken and those promised will result in the killing of countless innocent unborn both here and abroad through federal funding of abortion and abortion organizations,’ and ‘by honoring Biden, Notre Dame would make a bad situation worse.”

“The university would be seen as little troubled by Biden’s actions,” the petition, which was signed by 4,300 Notre Dame community members, reads, adding: “Catholics – including especially Catholic politicians — and others who share Biden’s views would be confirmed in their ruinous error while others would be newly led astray.”

“We suggest that [the university’s] responsibility … is to guard Church teachings that are crucially important in today’s society by conferring its honors upon those who support them rather than upon those who oppose them, especially the one person above all who has the will and the power to undermine them,” it adds.

MUST SEE: Brave Alaskan Helps Baby Moose Navigate Highway Barrier

Normally, stories about moose on the highway don’t end this well.

Alaska is a state like no other.  It’s still a veritably untamed place, where the weather and the wildlife are both out to get you. It takes a special kind of person to hack it in America’s last frontier.  A simple run to the grocery store can be hazardous in some conditions, and just taking the garbage out at night may find you face-to-face with hundreds of pounds of brown bear. But ask any Alaskan what they hope to avoid the most, and many will tell you it’s the moose that you have to worry about. These creatures are simply enormous, and they have just enough of an attitude to be more than a nuisance when confronted.  Combine that with the fact that plenty of Alaskans are killed each year after automotive collisions with these gargantuan animals, and you have a real recipe for trouble. This week, however, a different sort of moose story made headlines, and with some adorable photos to show for it. Last week, pictures of a man in Alaska lifting a moose calf over a highway guardrail were posted on Facebook. According to Andrea N Salty Bock, who posted the pictures on Facebook, the calf and its mother were near Clam Gulch, on the Kenai Peninsula. The mother was apparently trying to get her baby to go over the guardrail, but it was too tall for the calf. “Traffic stopped to give her the room she needed,” the Facebook post said. “But the calf could not clear the guardrail.” The photos were captivating. Authorities, while thankful that the moose was able to continue on its way, warned that the situation was still a dangerous one, despite the size and age of this animal.

Biden, Putin Appear Ready to Make Deal on Cyber Criminals

Well, it’s a start.

Of all of the ways in which this latest iteration of the Cold War has manifested itself in recent years, the insidious actors of the digital dimension may very well be the most prominent here in the 21st century. Notably, the den of online thieves and troublemakers who emanate from Russia, and often choose to target individuals and businesses in America.  In the past several weeks alone, hackers with ties to Russia have crippled a gasoline pipeline on the east coast of the United States and the world’s largest meatpackers. Now, as US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin look for ways to improve the ailing relationship between their two nations, a novel idea has risen in popularity. President Joe Biden signaled an openness to swapping cybercriminals with Russia ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. “Yes, I’m open to, if there’s crimes committed against Russia that, in fact, people committing those crimes are being harbored in the United States, I’m committed to holding them accountable. I was told as I was flying here that he said that. I think that’s potentially a good sign of progress,” Biden said at a post-G-7 summit press conference in the United Kingdom on Sunday. Putin had raised the possibility during an interview over the weekend. “If we agree on the extradition of criminals, then Russia will naturally do that but only if the other side, in this case, the United States, agrees to the same and will also extradite corresponding criminals to the Russian Federation,” Putin said according to Russian news agency TASS. Of course, given that Russia has a history of neglecting the human rights of her prisoners, there is sure to be some pushback regarding the idea of sending “innocent until proven guilty” perpetrators…
