DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf is urging Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to stop the “senseless violence and destruction” that’s continued for months and destroyed lives and property across the city by accepting the Trump administration’s offers to send in federal law enforcement, in a letter obtained by this reporter. The letter was sent Monday to Portland’s Mayor after months of mayhem continued and as the Mayor continues to refuse the President’s help.

“Due to a lack of action throughout the summer, Portland and its law-abiding residents continue to suffer from large-scale looting, arson, and vandalism—even killing. Businesses remain shuttered and Portlanders are held hostage by the daily violence that has gripped the city with no end in sight,” Wolf wrote to Wheeler.

He added, “… I urge you to prioritize public safety and to request federal assistance to restore law and order in Portland. We are standing by to support Portland. At the same time, President Trump has made it abundantly clear that there will come a point when state and local officials fail to protect its citizens from violence, the federal government will have no choice but to protect our American citizens.”

The city has been overrun by anarchist groups, like Antifa, which Wolf recently said “absolutely” fits the description of a domestic terrorist group.

Wheeler hasn’t been spared in the violence. In fact, Antifa attempted to set his condominium ablaze on Monday night.

The attack led to the Portland Police Department declaring “a riot” and arresting 19 people in connection with the violence and looting.

The Rose City also saw a deadly weekend after an alleged Antifa militant killed a Trump supporter, Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson in cold blood.

Pope Francis calls for universal ban on ‘so-called surrogate motherhood’

Pope Francis called for a universal ban on surrogacy, likening the practice as an unborn child “turned into an object of trafficking.”

“I consider despicable the practice of so-called surrogate motherhood, which represents a grave violation of the dignity of the woman and the child, based on the exploitation of situations of the mother’s material needs,” Francis said in a speech to the Holy See on Monday.

The “uterus for rent” process, as Francis has called it, was estimated to bring in $14 billion in the U.S. in 2022, and is projected to grow to a $129 billion market by 2032. National Review reports Individual surrogacies can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $200,000 plus in the U.S. Rising infertility rates, an increase in the number of fertility clinics, and “sedentary lifestyles” contribute to surrogacy’s recent popularity, according to Global Market Insights.

“A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Surrogacy is already banned in many European countries. In the United States, commercial surrogacy, or for-profit surrogacy, is legal in some states, and the practice has been used by celebrities who are very public with their decision to use surrogacy.

Altruistic surrogacy, the method by which a woman carries another person’s child for no official compensation, is legal in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, Greece, and Iceland, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The speech was about threats to peace and human dignity. “A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Francis also listed Russia’s war on Ukraine, the Israel-Hamas war, climate change, and increased weapons production as great threats to peace on Monday.
