  • AUDIO: Obama Admin Is ‘Going After’ Gun Dealers [VIDEO]

    03/04/2015 8:17:23 AM PST · by rktman · 21 replies ^ | 3/3/2015 | Patrick Howley
    The Obama administration’s Operation Choke Point program targets gun and ammunition dealers and tries to make life “miserable” for businesses that it doesn’t like, a payment processor told a Choke Point victim in jarring new audio. Operation Choke Point is a program by which the Department of Justice works with other administration agencies, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to force banks to shut down accounts of businesses that it objects to. The program purports to fight fraudulent businesses, but has instead targeted many gun and ammunition dealers and other lawful businesses.
  • A Prototype Battery Could Double the Range of Electric Cars

    MIT Technology Review ^ | 12/23/2014 | Kevin Bullis
    Startup Seeo has developed batteries that store far more energy than conventional ones, which could extend the range of electric cars. An experimental lithium-ion battery based on materials developed at a U.S. Department of Energy lab stores twice as much energy as the batteries used in most electric cars. If the technology can be commercialized, it could give affordable electric cars a range of over 200 miles per charge, says Hal Zarem, CEO of Seeo, a startup that’s working on the technology. Today the cheapest electric cars, which cost around $30,000, typically have a range of less than 100 miles....

On the other hand in Barack Obama we have a candidate of Marxist background who has allied himself with anti-American terrorists. The choice is between America's candidate and the candidate of America's enemies. 1. Obama's Marxist background includes (a) his parents, his father a theoretical communist and his mother a fellow traveler; (b) his Hawaiin mentor Frank Marshall Davis, member of the CPUSA;...

    Rich must pay bulk of climate change bill: Oxfam By Jeremy Lovell 37 minutes ago Coping with the ravages of global warming will cost $50 billion a year, and the rich nations who caused most of the pollution must pay most of the bill, aid agency Oxfam said on Tuesday. The call, barely 10 days before a crucial Group of Eight (G8) summit in Germany which has climate change at its core, is likely to make already tense negotiations even tougher. The United States, which Oxfam says must foot 44 percent of the annual $50 billion bill, is rejecting attempts...

    NAIROBI, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Twice badly burned in Somalia, the United States appears to be pursuing a third intervention that many Western and regional diplomats say could set off a disastrous war in the Horn of Africa. Sent into a policy tailspin by its backing of Mogadishu warlords toppled by Islamists earlier this year, Washington has resurrected a two-year-old plan to send African peacekeepers into Somalia. Peacekeeping, Somalia and the United States have proved a volatile mix. Washington abandoned a joint operation with the United Nations after 18 U.S. soldiers were killed and hundreds of Somalis slaughtered in the...

Penn used the biblical term for a prince of devils while promoting the remake of the political drama "All the King's Men" on Sunday. "One could make the argument that George Bush is a good politician," Penn said at one point. Then he added: "I think the issue is how you define politician. Once upon a time, politics was the organization of things to benefit the people." Penn said the definition has changed – much...

Participants in talks in Vienna, sponsored by the United Nations, on the “final status” of Kosovo, are concerned that the mafia networks that smuggled guns into the disputed province from Albania in 1997 and 1998 are using the same channels for a burgeoning trade in illicit petrol, cigarettes and cement. Prostitution and drugs are also popular staples of the black economy....

    Country trio the DIXIE CHICKS are planning to re-ignite their feud with US President GEORGE W BUSH in a provocative new song. The group sparked controversy when singer NATALIE MAINES publicly criticised Bush during a concert in London in 2003 - and fans staged bonfires, where they burned CDs and merchandise after calling the girls traitors. That led to Maines sobbing during an apologetic interview on US TV. But the feisty singer remains defiant and has penned new tune NOT READY TO MAKE NICE, which addresses the controversy surrounding her concert comments. Maines teamed up with former SEMISONIC frontman DAN...

According to the study in rats, a super-potent synthetic version of the cannabinoid compound found in marijuana can reduce depression and anxiety when taken over an extended period of time.

    While many people this month are focused on the controversy surrounding the 40th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, I have another civil-rights-related 40th anniversary on my mind. On Aug. 11, 1965, the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles broke out in flames on the nation's television screens. Many cherish the memory as the moment when the militant became mainstream in a "fed-up" black America, replacing the nonviolent, gradualist efforts of old-guard civil rights leaders. The Watts riot indeed shaped modern black American history more decisively than the Voting Rights Act. The question is whether it was in a...

Nowhere is this smoke thicker and trickier than in the lingo the corporate-politico-media squad uses when talking about public schools.

    THE GOD VS. Darwin debate went to the White House last week when President Bush weighed in, stating in a roundtable interview with reporters that ''intelligent design" should be taught along with evolution in public schools. It's a move that has undoubtedly pleased the president's conservative religious base. However, it has also caused much unhappiness among those conservatives who want the Republican Party to be something other than a political arm of the religious right, including such strong Bush supporters as columnist Charles Krauthammer and University of Tennessee law professor/blogger Glenn Reynolds.

Good luck getting anyone's attention with intelligence-reform reform three weeks after the last go-round.

He's plenty tough enough! By day he's the windsurfing, flip-flopping, French looking Liberal Senator from Massachusetts; but by night, John Kerry is... "Metro-Sexual Man." With his trusty sidekick Silky Boy, it's off to the Femmobile to save America from his arch nemesis "W" and his partner in crime "The VP." Financed by his Billionaire Sugar-Mamma "Teresa" (actually the inspiration for the Kinks 1970 hit Lola), Metro-Man and Silky Boy promise to...

    There is a possibility that the 'email campaign' originated from individuals within the internal network or the people writing those letters are "spoofing" the headers. Some quick points: 1) the 192.168 address is reserved for internal (private networks) RFC 1918 The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following three blocks of the IP address space for private internets: - (10/8 prefix) - (172.16/12 prefix) - (192.168/16 prefix) 2) A search for's IP address also reveals that it is not 192.168 but instead: 3) This means one...

    The following excerpt is from first four months of 1972 are at the beginning of a controversial period in Bush's Guard service. After taking his last flight in April 1972, Bush went for six months without showing up for any training drills. In September 1972 he received permission to transfer to an Alabama Guard unit so he could work on a political campaign there. I have read just about every post listed on FR today about this item. And no where have I seen it posted or stated that in 1972 there were 641 casualties from all types of...

    Daughters teen site. She's trying to teach liberal kids to think, but there's a lot of them. They're all using the left's talking points. She's attempting to fight them off on her own. Could use a friendly "FReeping" to come to her aid. She's asking FReepers to say "Help is on the way." LOL. She's 15.The topics are abortion and the death penality.
  • Zot the liberal talking points. The trolls are desperate and ILLETERATE.

    (1) YOU'RE KEN STARR. (2) YOU DON'T WANT TO FIND OSAMA. Bush said he doesn't care where Osama is hiding. I'm not making that up; Bush said he doesn't care where Osama bin Laden - the man behind the September 11 attack on America - is hiding. (3) YOU HATE AMERICA. Like the terrorists, you can't stand the freedom America stands for, so you support The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, secrecy about what happened on 9/11, torture as a means of "information-gathering," a non-accredited school's right to ban interracial dating, and flying the bin Laden family out of the country...
