  • The Freeper-Identify Which is a Bomb Test (educational vanity)

    I was surprised to see a lot of freepers getting mad at a teacher for not knowing how to correctly identify what is or isn't a bomb. (I am generally happy when a teacher just knows their own subject matter but I guess some here expect them to be demolitions experts as well) So I devised a little test to see how many armchair teachers think they could have done better So let's begin--who can correctly identify which of these ten picture are of bombs and which are not. 1View post on imgur.com 2View post on imgur.com 3View post on...
  • Commodities Collapsed Just Before The Last Stock Market Crash So Guess What Is Happening Right Now?

    Economic Collapse ^ | 07/22/15 | Michael Snyder
    If we were going to see a stock market crash in the United States in the fall of 2015 (to use a hypothetical example), we would expect to see commodity prices begin to crash a few months ahead of time. This is precisely what happened just before the great financial crisis of 2008, and we are watching the exact same thing happen again right now. On Wednesday, commodities got absolutely pummeled, and at this point the Bloomberg Commodity Index is down a whopping 26 percent over the past twelve months. When global economic activity slows down, demand for raw materials...

  • The White House Guess List: How Obama Pulled a Fast One on the American People

    Big Government ^ | 3/22/11 | Andrew Breitbart
    President Barack Obama has won praise from the media — and from himself — for putting the White House visitor logs online. Yet the visitor logs may hide more than they reveal. The White House is still holding back “tens of thousands” of visitor logs, according to congressional testimony last week by Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, who also added that “the Obama administration is less transparent than the Bush administration.” We also know that some of the most important presidential visitors don’t even walk into the White House. The administration meets K Street lobbyists at Caribou Coffee, and...
  • Guess what? President Obama had a ‘tranny nanny’ growing up in Indonesia.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/10/10 | Mark Hemingway
    Here’s a rather bizarre biographical nugget about President Obama that somehow seems to have escaped the media’s attention. According to the New York Times, Obama had a rather unusual caretaker growing up in Indonesia: His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many transvestites who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball.

    Good evening!November is Coming!No doubt we'll have some wavering polls, some naysayer commentators. The MSM will play their usual role trying to pit one group of conservatives against another, promoting controversy, while ignoring the cracks in the Left's facade. But with essentially one month left, a few hard campaigning weeks and weekends, we'll stay firmly focused on November 2 and stopping a horrendous assault on our Constitution and our Liberties.November IS coming!

    New York Democrat Charles Rangel, admonished last week by an ethics panel, will give up the powerful chairmanship of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee in the House of Representatives, NBC reported on Tuesday. Three Democratic leadership aides told Reuters they were unable to confirm or comment on the NBC report. A fourth indicated that no immediate announcements were planned. NBC quoted a Democratic House member as saying the party did not have the votes to save Rangel, who has faces calls from Republicans and some Democrats to step down as chairman.

    Georges Marciano, a co-founder of the Guess clothing empire, is the latest person seeking to become governor of California. The one-time fashion magnate's paperwork was recorded on Monday with the secretary of state's office, allowing him to run as an independent in 2010, when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is termed out. The 62-year-old Beverly Hills resident plans to campaign on a platform that focuses on exposing and eliminating political corruption and putting "the power of government back in the people's hands," said his publicist, Rod Harrell. "He doesn't really want to be tied into the same old good-old-boys network," Harrell said....

    There was a gigantic turn toward John McCain in the two weeks immediately after the GOP convention. In large part this was due to the Sarah Palin nomination, and the tremendous miscalculation by the Democrats in attacking Palin — particularly on issues important to women, such as her caring for her children. That backfired massively. The anti-Palin attack by the Democrats showed a cultural disconnect with America that is remarkable.

    An exhaustive, eight-year Media Research Center study of the Big Three TV networks’ coverage of Barack Obama shows that their favorable spin on the Democrat gave him his margin of victory in the primaries, according to MRC president Brent Bozell. The MRC notes that this year saw the closest nomination contest in a generation, with just one-tenth of a percentage point — 41,622 votes out of more than 35 million cast — separating Obama from Hillary Clinton when the Democratic primaries ended in June. “But Barack Obama had a crucial advantage over his rivals this year: the support of the...

    Lonely whales are 'losing the will to live' due to over-hunting By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 4:57 PM on 02nd July 2008 The steeply declining number of whales in the world's oceans is causing the remaining creatures to suffer loneliness and 'lose the will the live', a leading expert has claimed. The psychological impact of over-hunting on the highly intelligent and sociable animals has been identified as the latest threat to the survival of the species. The whale population has already fallen dramatically over the past few centuries because to culling by Japan, Norway and Iceland, and the...

    Sen. John McCain will choose businessman and former Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney as Vice President, in his bid for the White House this November, a source closely connected with the McCain campaign, who asked to remain anonymous, told us earlier this afternoon.Though others were close in the running, the choice ultimately came down to the money–not the man. According to our source, the campaign narrowed their Vice Presidential options to Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, the two most successful opponents of McCain in the bid for the Republican nomination. But despite Huckabee’s sway with far Right conservatives and evangelical voters,...
  • Ocean Temperatures And Sea Level Increases 50 Percent Higher Than Previously Estimated

    ScienceDaily (June 19, 2008) — New research suggests that ocean temperature and associated sea level increases between 1961 and 2003 were 50 percent larger than estimated in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. The research corrected for small but systematic biases recently discovered in the global ocean observing system, and uses statistical techniques that “infill” information in data-sparse regions.

    Washington—After years and years of taking it in the shorts by moderate Republicans, John McCain has decided to pick Joe Lieberman as his Vice Presidential running mate. This move breaks a long standing history of Republican tradition, and throws the Republican Party into utter chaos. The move, made after months of pandering to the left, is all part of the McCain strategy to reach out to Democrats and feed his out of control ego. The McCain camp had thought long and hard about selecting Hillary Clinton, but agreed that making that move might be going too far. So, the Lieberman...

    Scientists on the US Pacific coast are increasingly observing emaciated gray whales in what they fear is a sign that global warming is wreaking havoc in the whales' Bering Sea summer feeding grounds. The scientists fear that the same phenomenon is cutting back reproduction in the Pacific whale population to the point it could be facing a new crisis, after recovering in the mid-1990s and graduating from the endangered species list. "The gray whales are migrating later, not going as far north, and are producing fewer calves," Steven Swartz, head researcher with the National Marine Fisheries Service told AFP. Swartz,...

    This is the fifth in an occasional series of exclusive articles in which leading conservatives who served in the Reagan Administration explain how they believe the principles of Reagan conservatism ought to be applied today and in the coming years. This week, Edwin Meese, who was Reagan’s first presidential counselor and then attorney general, addresses immigration. What would Ronald Reagan do? I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked that question, on virtually every issue imaginable. As much as we all want clarity and certainty, I usually refrain from specific answers. That’s because it is very difficult...
