    (Vanity) NBC Commercial Extravaganza of advertising | August 5, 2016 | Swordmaker
    NBC is interrupting the coverage of the opening ceremonies ever few minutes for at least three minutes of really BAD advertisements. But then the opening ceremonies are pretty bad themselves. . . among the worst of the modern era. How many of our Fellow Freepers are finding this as off-putting as I am? Then the Brazilians used it for a huge propaganda push for the dire consequences of Global Warming, not even "Climate Change!" Good Grief. . . Comments?
  • Dems Are Now Offering a Reward For Trump's Tax Returns

    07/28/2016 5:57:58 AM PDT · by rktman · 46 replies ^ | 7/28/2016 | Leah Barkoukis
    Trump has long insisted he can’t release his tax returns because they’re currently under review, reiterating this position on Wednesday at a news conference in Florida. But that’s not stopping Democrats (and Republicans) from wanting to know what’s in them. Some donors have even offered rewards for their release. Moishe Mana, a top fundraiser for Clinton, has offered to give $1 million to the charity of Trump's choice if he makes them public. He joins an unnamed Republican donor working with Clinton ally David Brock who has made a similar offer of $5 million. "Through his financial documents, we are...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% had a "bad night" on Super Tuesday and wondered, if Cruz "cannot sweep on Super Tuesday...where in this country is he going to win?" While he would win Florida and "other winner take all states." Rubio added that he wouldn't get out even if he didn't win Florida and plans to campaign in all 50 states. Rubio said, "I think the analysis has to be re-calibrated here. First of all, this...
  • Did Twitter Exec Censor #WhichHillary In Advance of Sunday Fundraiser, Key Primary?

    /. ^ | 2/26/2016 | Unknown
    In a truly egregious move yesterday, Twitter suspended the account responsible for #WhichHillary, activist @GuerrillaDems. Twitter also removed #WhichHillary from trending status, which is odd, considering the hashtag received more than 450,000 tweets in less than 24 hours. Twitter now says the suspension of @GuerillaDems was a mistake. Although this may just be a coincidence, it isn't the first time Twitter has exerted political control. Many users think it is a demonstrable conflict of interest, in light of Twitter Executive Chairman Omid Kordestani's Sunday, 2/28 fundraiser with Clinton.

The list of VA employees with unusual workplace moving patterns includes infamous names like Diana Rubens, who was a D.C. based administrator until she created a job for herself with less work and the same $181,000 salary near her family in Philadelphia. Then she billed VA for nearly $300,000 in relocation costs. It also provides a roadmap for a...

This may sound simplistic given all the protections granted to civil servants and the complexities of federal human resources case law, but it’s true. What does it mean to have the will? It means having the strength to remove a poor employee when it is the right thing to do.

    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a really bad trade deal for America – perhaps the worst yet. In fact, it is so bad, the treaty is being negotiated in secret. Clearly, Americans would be outraged if its contents were fully disclosed because TPP implementation essentially destroys what’s left of the middle class. Further, the TPP would have severe negative impact on many of the earth’s poorest people. Whenever a politician says: “We must first pass the bill to find out what is in it”, a big “red flag” ought to go up. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said this while “ObamaDoesn’tCare”...

    The Obama administration’s negotiations over nuclear matters are a disaster. The administration’s defenders are vigorously rebutting allegations that President Obama has made too many concessions in the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. Their defense is a simple statement of fact: There is no agreement yet, so how can the critics be right? They assert that we must wait until the outcome is agreed upon before we can assess it. The concern, however, is both bipartisan and international — with many Democrats voicing alarm and with Israel and the Arab states alike frustrated that a seemingly desperate administration has placed Iran’s...

    This year the movie God Is Not Dead preyed on every Christian parent’s fear of sending a child off to college only to have their family’s faith and values undermined by an atheist college professor espousing some form of moral relativism. The movie hinges on a certain cliché, but the cliché is a cliché because many of us took a class with “that professor.” He might not have been so over-the-top, but his prejudices were evident. The American university tends to be fairly hostile to the conservative movement. One of the core tenets of conservatism is the Judeo-Christian teaching that...

    From Libya to Iran, our past actions have drastically limited our current choices. Survey the Middle East, and there is nothing about which to be optimistic.

Take your pick in a now-Manichean standoff between an authoritarian, thuggish Bashar Assad and al-Qaeda franchises that envision a Taliban-like state. There is increasingly not much in between, other than the chaos of something like another Sudan. Our Libyan “leading from behind” led to Mogadishu-like chaos and Benghazi.

    Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is pushing for a final up-or-down vote on comprehensive immigration reform by the end of next week. “Comprehensive” is another word for unread. Lawmakers need to know what’s in this bill before they pass it. It’s full of questionable provisions that so far haven’t been subject to much debate. One portion of the Senate bill would loosen the rules for seeking asylum. Sec. 3401 removes the one-year deadline for applying for asylum; Sec. 3504 adds another layer of appeals for aliens turned down; and Sec. 3502 allows the U.S. attorney general to provide government-funded...

    In the three years since Kosovo, urged on by the United States, declared its unilateral independence, there has been no final resolution of this long-festering wound in the heart of the Balkans. After the expulsion of the Serbian military from Kosovo in 1999 there was a systematic purging of the non-Albanian population and a rampage of revenge killing, and destruction. In March, 2004, the Albanian mobs burned or dynamited more than 204 Christian churches and monasteries - some of them heritage structures dating back to the 14th century.

    Osvaldo Siqueira da Silva, 55, stopped to rest on a boulder. He was carrying five one-liter bottles of water to friends up the hill. "It has been four days," he said.

    When Jane Harrop was admitted to hospital with severe pains in her head and neck, staff told her she was merely suffering a migraine. Two days later she had died of a rare brain virus. Her family have now called for answers after the 30-year-old carer was ‘dosed up on morphine and left in a corner to die’ by nurses at the hospital, according to her husband.

    The Associated Press reports that young adults will face higher premiums under ObamaCare: Beginning in 2014, most Americans will be required to buy insurance or pay a tax penalty. That’s when premiums for young adults seeking coverage on the individual market would likely climb by 17 percent on average, or roughly $42 a month, according to an analysis of the plan conducted for The Associated Press. The analysis did not factor in tax credits to help offset the increase. The higher costs will pinch many people in their 20s and early 30s who are struggling to start or advance their...

    Movie critics are, by definition, folks with strong opinions about movies. But opinions are personal and subjective, so usually critical response to any movie is split between the positive and the negative. Still, there are a few extraordinary films every year that unite reviewers. When they all uniformly praise a movie, it's probably close to a masterpiece. When they all hate a flick, it probably stinks worse than week-old Limburger., which aggregates the opinions of over 100 professional movie critics and distills them down to a single numeric "freshness" rating, has compiled the "Worst of the Worst," a list...
