    A reportedly drunken golf cart ride New Year’s Eve in Fairfield sent one elderly man to jail and his two companions to local hospitals. According to the California Highway Patrol, the crash occurred just shy of 10:30 p.m. at the Green Valley Country Club. Dino Glennon Forristall, 65, of Pinole, was driving the cart and Christine Forristall, 63, also of Pinole, and Sherri Jeha, 65, of Crocket, were riding with him. Dino made an unsafe turning movement, officials said, resulting in the cart traveling off a 30-foot embankment. Dino suffered minor injuries while both passengers suffered major injuries. Officials described...

    “Philip and Nathanael: A Story of Witnessing” (John 1:43-51) The Holy Gospel for today, from John 1, takes place very early in Jesus’ ministry, when he was first gathering his disciples. It’s the story of Philip and Nathanael, how they came to be disciples and follow our Lord. It’s the story of “Philip and Nathanael: A Story of Witnessing.” Now today let their story become your story also. The story begins with Jesus finding Philip and saying to him, “Follow me.” Notice that: Jesus finds Philip. Just like he finds us. He seeks us out, even when we were not...
  • Trey Gowdy resigns as House Ethics Committee member

    01/13/2018 7:54:12 PM PST · by MNDude · 33 replies
    Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is stepping down from his role on the House Ethics Committee, citing a "challenging workload" as the reason for his departure. Gowdy informed House Speaker Paul Ryan of his decision in a letter on Jan. 10, the details of which were not made public until Saturday. The South Carolina Republican was tapped to lead the House Oversight Committee last June, after the former chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, left Congress for a job at Fox News.

  • New Q posts dropping tonight (1/13/18)

    01/13/2018 7:44:12 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 199 replies
    Go to link to see the posts that just dropped tonight. Not sure what to make of it. Very cryptic. References Uranium 1 and possibly the fake alert in Hawaii today. The last of the posts simply states "checkmate". Earlier in the day, WikiLeaks posted a picture of a chessboard at a critical points with a famous 1918 game. I'm not a big chess fan but apparently it was posted for a reason. Lot of Internet chatter around this "Q". I do not endorse nor do I rebuke. Just putting it out there for others opinion.

Christine Douglass-Williams, who authored “The Challenge of Modernizing Islam,” has documented her ordeal in a report titled “Canada: Islamist-Leftist-Government alliance silences free speech at the Gatestone Institute.” “For writing and warning about political Islam, I was terminated as a director at the federal government’s Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), an agency usually at arms-length from the federal...
  • Fake News: No, MSNBC Producer, A U.S. Diplomat Didn't Resign Because Of Trump's 'S**thole' Remarks

    President Trump was the center of another firestorm. During immigration negotiations with congressional leaders, the president reportedly said why are we letting people in from “s**thole countries.” Now, he was probably referring to the nations with temporary protective status, but the media blew a gasket. In the aftermath, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, decided to resign, citing his inability to no longer being able to serve President Trump. The timing was just a coincidence, but some in the media decided to jump the gun and say that he resigned over the president’s remarks. One MSNBC producer took to...

    As hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers prepare for the 45th Annual March for Life in Washington on January 19, America is benefiting from the best year since 1973 when it comes to policies affirming the value of life. President Trump has reaffirmed and broadened the Mexico City Policy established by Ronald Reagan. He has targeted Obama’s notorious HHS Mandate for extinction, halted United Nations abortion funding, and successfully named Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Despite these accomplishments, America’s Catholic bishops have found it difficult to praise President Trump. When forced to do so, their tone is begrudging and...

    Youtube video 22:55 minutes in length. Well organized, informative review of the 13 names listed on the Annex attached to President Trump's Executive Order dated December 21, 2018. The vlogger concludes by offering his opinion that the EO Annex appears to identify 13 individuals which serve to indirectly target Clinton (i.e., Clinton was the original target but Trump intentionally veiled his target with the names on the list).

    (CNN) — Former President Bill Clinton on Saturday denied accusations that his charity used donations for Haiti to pay for his daughter Chelsea's wedding to investment banker Mark Mezvinsky in 2010. "No Clinton Foundation funds — dedicated to Haiti or otherwise —were used to pay for Chelsea's wedding," Clinton tweeted Saturday. "It's not only untrue, it's a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc."

    An hour before Las Vegas cops released Stephen Paddock’s name, Danley deleted her Facebook account, according to newly released documents about the Oct. 1 mass murder of 58 people attending an outdoor country music concert on the Strip. Danley was traveling in the Philippines when Paddock unleashed the bullet barrage from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort. When he was finally done with unleashing mayhem on thousands of innocents, he took his own life. Danley was “adamant that she had no prior inclination of Paddock’s intentions to conduct the attack,” says an FBI agent’s affidavit. But the documents...
  • Another country has banned boiling live lobsters. Some scientists wonder why.

    The Swiss Federal Council issued an order this week banning cooks in Switzerland from placing live lobsters into pots of boiling water – joining a few other jurisdictions that have protections for the decapod crustaceans. Switzerland’s new measure stipulates that beginning March 1, lobsters must be knocked out – either by electric shock or “mechanical destruction” of the brain – before boiling them, according to Swiss public broadcaster RTS. The announcement reignited a long-running debate: Can lobsters even feel pain?

    Who wants to participate in a music play-off bracket-type poll for best songs of the '70s? 3 years ago I ran a "tournament" to pick the best songs of the '80s, based first on Billboard rankings, so only the best of the best are included! You can view how this played out here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3249477/posts That's what I want to do for the '70s. (Wouldn't mind doing it for other decades, either!)
  • Repercussions of mass illegal wiretapping?

    01/13/2018 6:51:35 PM PST · by MNDude · 8 replies
    All the information that is coming out seems to strongly suggest not only President Trump was illegally surveilled, but this was common practice for those in the Deep state on many others. So, what will be the repercussions if we learn that doesn't if not hundreds of people have been surveilled illegally? What if Dinesh D'Souza was in prison based on illegally obtained information? What if Justice Roberts made his decision based on blackmail? There are probably many people who are sitting in prison today because of illegally obtained information. What do you think the Fallout from this would be?
  • ‘Don’t Be Evil’? Google Is Becoming A Police State

    The Federalist ^ | JANUARY 12, 2018 | Robert Tracinski
    Google employees are creating their own enclave of mandatory wokeness, but they're not content to keep this ideological policing within their own walls. Back in the day, Google famously adopted the corporate motto, “Don’t be evil.” It hasn’t turned out so well. The problem is that their motto didn’t define what constitutes evil, so it left an opening for narrow-minded zealots to commandeer company resources in a witch hunt against whatever they define as the forces of wickedness. That’s what has happened at Google, which has adopted a corporate culture of quasi-totalitarian ideological uniformity that it is now starting to...

    "Golf is a good walk spoiled," American author Mark Twain is credited as saying. Golf, a game as beautiful as it is frustrating, is played daily by thousands of men and women. Time and time again, a good golf round is ruined by slow play, a call from a spouse demanding their loved one home, or inclement weather. But for one Hawaiian man, absolutely nothing could get in the way of finishing his round, not even a potential ballistic missile strike.Alohi Gardner of Honolulu, Hawaii tweeted a video taken by her father, right after the entire state received a mass...

    Panic and confusion swept Hawaii on Saturday as a mistaken alert about a ballistic missile attack spread across the Pacific U.S. state, sending residents and tourists scrambling for shelter and questioning why an all-clear was not issued faster. Rhonda Ramirez and Michael Sterling, both 56 and from Los Angeles, were staying at a hotel in the Waikiki tourist district when the state emergency agency issued the bogus alert at 8:07 a.m. HAST (1807 GMT). Ramirez, a mortgage broker, “immediately started crying. I was thinking, ‘What could we do? There is nothing we can do with a missile,'” said Sterling, a...

    Based on updates from satellite trackers, it has been indicated that Tianglong-1 will likely reenter our atmosphere in March of 2018, with the possibility of debris making it to the surface. However, according to a statement made by a top engineer at the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASTC), reports that the Chinese National Space Agency (CNSA) has lost control of the space station have been wildly exaggerated. The statement came from Zhu Congpeng, a top engineer at the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASTC). As he was quoted as saying to the Science and Technology Daily newspaper –...

    A man aboard a Greyhound bus who allegedly threatened to shoot and kill fellow passengers on Friday, leading police on a chase that began in Wisconsin and ended in Illinois, is an illegal immigrant, and is now facing terror charges. Police responded to a call around 9:40 p.m. Friday from a bus passenger who claimed there was a person threatening to kill people, Fox 6 reported, citing the Racine County Sheriff’s Department. Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, of Chicago, was reportedly pacing the aisle toward the back of the bus, and appeared to draw what passengers thought was a weapon from his...
