(CNN) The Bundy men and others have been indicted by a federal grand jury on Wednesday. Patriarch Cliven Bundy and his sons Ryan and Ammon face 16 felony charges related to armed standoffs the men and their militia have had with authorities, which have dated back to 2014. The standoff stemmed from a dispute between Cliven Bundy and the government over open range cattle grazing after an endangered species of turtle was recognized in the area. Ryan and Ammon were taking refuge in the Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge’s headquarters in Harney County. The standoff just ended last week, and it’s likely that 69-year old Cliven Bundy could be spending the rest of his days behind bars.

 

(Daily Mail) Malachi Love-Robinson, 18, was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday on a $21,000 bond on charges of practicing medicine without a license, fraud, and grand theft. Love-Robinson claimed to be the age of 25 and the co-founder, president, and CEO of New Birth Life Holistic and Alternative Medical Center & Urgent Care center in West Palm Beach where he masqueraded as ‘Dr. Malachi Love-Robinson, PH.D., HHP-C, AMP-C.’ Love-Robinson’s grandfather, William Robinson, says that his grandson never claimed to be a medical doctor, only a ‘holistic doctor.’ He said his grandson had never seen patients, but the latest incident is the third time in just over a year that Love-Robinson has allegedly been found to be pretending to be someone he is not. No January of 2015, he reportedly impersonated a gynecologist at St. Mary’s Medical Center and looked in on exams.

 

(FOX) Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump has stated that he wants to build a wall on the U.S’s southern border with Mexico, and he has also professed his strong Christian faith. Now, the leader of the Catholic religion, Pope Francis, is saying that building a wall is not a Christian act, and he is questioning Trump’s faith in God. According to FOX, Trump immediately responded: “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful.” The dispute has escalated in recent weeks, with Trump saying that the Pope doesn’t understand the danger that open borders would pose and that if ISIS attacked the Vatican, the pope would have a different outlook. Pope Francis has responded saying that Trump should focus on building bridges, not walls.
