    Thanks to pissed off MN CD 4 voter for finding this gem and sharing with us. What you will see is a sad display of disrespect by a United States Congresswoman from Minnesota, Democrat Betty McCollum. It is a video that Betty does not want her voters to see, but it's too late Betty, you have been exposed.  After watching this video you will see how obvious it is that she she intentionally omitted the words, "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.   At the time, her staffers claimed she took a breath, but with the video now out,...
  • Al Franken: Bush & GOP put Americans in backseat of car; then drove it off cliff

    Al Franken says that G.W. Bush put all Americans into the back seat of a proverbial car, then drove it off a cliff, just before jumping out to save his own skin. Tortured and smart-alecky attempt at an analogy aside for a second, the full-time, four-eyed Senate clown himself, Al Franken, was speaking at yesterday’s fire-up-the-demoralized-Democrat-voters rally in Minneapolis, where both Barack Obama and the Democrats’ gubernatorial candidate, Mark Dayton, were participants also. Dayton is locked in a statistical dead heat with GOP candidate Tom Emmer, so what do those geniuses called Democrats do? Why, bring in the Senate’s full-time,...

    The Hill ^ | Oct. 22, 2010 | Michael O'Brien
    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Friday asked Democrats to provide more donations to his colleagues, warning that several of his fellow Democratic senators could end up reprising the months-long recount that kept him from taking his Senate seat. Franken wrote in a fundraising e-mail for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) that some of his colleagues — like Sens. Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Russ Feingold (Wis.) or Patty Murray (Wash.) — could end up in races that are determined by just a few votes. "Barbara Boxer, Russ Feingold, Patty Murray: Any of these great Democrats could end up in a race...

    SYDNEY, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Three people are on trial in Australia for allegedly telling people they'd been cursed then luring them to "prayer sessions" that involved sex, officials say. Tony Golossian, 62, Arthur Psichogios, 40, and his wife, Frances Psichogios, 39 have pleaded not guilty to charges, The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph reported Thursday. Crown prosecutor Sarah Huggett said victims were told curses had been put on them and that to remove the curses they had to attend "prayer sessions" where they were blindfolded and sex took place. The women also received phone calls from "demonic voices," Huggett alleged. The...

    I have been struck at the incredible defeatism that stalks abroad (even here on Freerepublic) concerning the electoral prospects of Christine O'Donnell. These gloomy views seem to center on one thing alone: The Polls. The very same polls which showed Lisa Murkowski ahead by 32-39 points in Alaska. The very same polls which up until less than two weeks before the election had Martha Coakley up nearly 20 in blue Massachusetts. As the Real Clear Politics average shows, Brown trailed by 19 points (53.6% to 34.6%) based upon the RCP average until 10 days before the election! ( which was...

    SAO PAULO — Brazil's incoming Congress decided from weekend elections will have to make room for a colorful new member: a professional clown who won the most number of votes of any of them. Tiririca, a 45-year-old television humorist whose real name is Francisco Oliveira, scooped up 1.3 million votes in Sunday's polls to represent Sao Paulo, the highest number of votes for any federal deputy across the country. His TV campaign ads, featuring him dancing around in a tiny hat and multi-colored outfit with a cheesy smile, were easily the most irreverent spots in the lead-up to the general...

    Sen.

    Proving that some things are impossible to satirize, the British environmentalist group 10:10 has produced a short propaganda film that at first glance appears to be something that Rush Limbaugh would've created to mock environmental extremism. Oh, but it's not. 10:10, which gets its name from the goal of cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent annually starting in 2010, means it for real. The four-minute commercial, which can be found here , is called "No Pressure" and is divided into three main segments: a teacher with her class of middle schoolers, a corporate pep-talk in an office building lobby,...

    OCTOBER 1--A Florida man arrested Wednesday on drug charges told cops that a bag of cocaine found hidden inside his buttocks did not belong to him. Though the suspect did cop to ownership of a bag of marijuana hidden alongside the coke. The narcotics were discovered by Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies after Raymond Roberts’s Hyundai was pulled over on a Bradenton street for speeding Wednesday morning. Investigators, who reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, subsequently searched the 25-year-old Roberts and discovered his hidden stash. During the search, when Deputy Sean Cappiello "felt a soft...

    The world’s largest pro-pedophilia advocacy group uses Facebook to connect with its members throughout the world; to find and exchange photos of children; to hone its members' predatory behavior; and to identify, target and reel in child victims, an investigation by reveals. Facebook says it has a strict policy against the posting of content that supports groups engaged in child exploitation, yet a simple, five-second search on Facebook, conducted on Sept. 23, yielded dozens of pages devoted to the infamous North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Many of those pages featured numerous photos of unnamed boys, some of whom...

    WININPEG - A convicted sex offender who is wanted by police in at least four U.S. states was arrested in southern Manitoba this month after someone welcomed him into their home. It's believed the Manitoban who took in Francis David Sherman and his girlfriend had no idea a fugitive, convicted of rape and child sexual assault, was staying under his roof. The American couple, of no fixed address, used aliases and gave bogus cover stories to elude police, agencies say. "He's a guy who needed to get caught and we're thankful to our fellow law enforcement in Canada," said Byron...

    The indictment alleges that Bagley met the woman when she was 16 and a runaway and persuaded her to move into his trailer with promises of a "great life" and a future as a model and dancer. She got her own room, furniture and TV, and Bagley began giving her drugs, showing her pornography and sexually abusing her, prosecutors said. When she turned 18, he persuaded her to sign a 'sex slave contract," which he said bound her to him for life, prosecutors claim. Bagley "beat, whipped, flogged, suffocated, choked, electrocuted, caned, skewered, drowned, mutilated, hung and caged" the girl...

    A 170-page manual explaining step by step how to molest children which police in Orange County, Fla., believe has been circulating there for months, is not illegal. Investigators have stated that they still want to know where it came from. "I've never seen anything like it. It was pretty amazing when I first saw it just because how detailed it was," Orange County Sheriff's Office Det. Philip Graves told ABC News Orlando, Fla., affiliate WFTV. The manual, which was apparently written by someone who calls himself "the mule," is a how-to of child molestation, even explaining where and how to...

    Not only did Steve Schmidt tell Sam Stein of the Huffington Post that “gay marriage is a conservative cause,” but he went on to up the ante even more. Schmidt, who is famously known as a being a failure for John McCain and being jealous of Sarah Palin’s hair, launched a missile at the Republican Party, declaring that “it’s hip to be queer.” “More and more,” fired Schmidt, I hear conservatives are saying that opposition to gay marriage is good. But that’s a crock of crap! Conservatives need to wake up and smell what they’re shoveling! Metro sexual is a...

    child sex abuse trial that has lasted nearly six years is drawing to a close after producing chilling testimony from dozens of alleged victims and shaking public trust in Portugal's institutions. Six men, including a national television celebrity and a retired ambassador, and one woman are accused of sexually abusing minors and adolescents, raping children and running a pedophile ring at a state-run children's home in Lisbon called Casa Pia. The court is to rule on more than 800 alleged crimes in a verdict due on Friday. The trial, believed to be Portugal's longest, has included testimony from more than...

    LLANWRTYD WELLS, Wales - Bog snorkeling officials say a world record may have been set at the World Championships in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales. Dan Morgan of Brecon, Wales, seems to have chopped more than 8 seconds off of the previous time to clinch the title, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday. There was no mention of how or when official confirmation is made. The sport of bog snorkeling began in 1976 near Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales, as a result of a bar conversation in The Neuadd Arms. The World Bog Snorkeling Championship, first held in 1985, takes place every August bank holiday...

    Joel Brinkley, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle, lifts a rock and finds Afghan culture -- predatory and abusive, twisted out of human shape by a fusion of Pashtun and Koranic influences. Western forces fighting in southern Afghanistan had a problem. Too often, soldiers on patrol passed an older man walking hand-in-hand with a pretty young boy. Their behavior suggested he was not the boy's father. Then, British soldiers found that young Afghan men were actually trying to "touch and fondle them," military investigator AnnaMaria Cardinalli told me. "The soldiers didn't understand." [...] This would appear to be the same...
