  • Comedian Eddie Griffin Calls For Trump’s Assassination: “Ya’ll Need To Take Him Out”…

    Comedian Eddie Griffin encouraged audience members to assassinate President Trump during a standup comedy routine in Dallas, Texas on Friday, but Facebook doesn’t want you to know that. Ben Ferguson, a radio show host who attended the show at the American Airlines Center, told The Federalist that Griffin made references to late President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, saying: “Ya’ll took out one president, you need to take out another.” “Ya’ll need to put Trump into a convertible and take him out, or better yet, the driver should take him out,” he continued.

    This Week in the News This week, Survival Saturday discusses the Official Spin, which “helps” Americans interpret the issues in the most beneficial way possible for those with control of the microphone. The unsettling revelations that have been emerging about the corruption in our government have people wondering what to believe. So, what better way to inform them of what to think than to scare them, distract them, and warn them they’re going to be lied to in the future by the one organization who is the most likely to tell the truth?Do this often enough, and the truth doesn’t...

    Hi everyone. OK I have a stupid question. But maybe someone else is also wondering this. I have a phone. And I have a pc. On my phone I have a number of nice apps, which I downloaded, and very much enjoy on the phone. However I do not have a similar arrangement on my pc. So I am just wondering, how does one similarly download apps for a home computer, that one gets for a internet-enabled phone please? Specifically the mapping programs. And the language translate applications? Google has a good one for each. Microsoft has a competing program,...

    Trickle Down Economics versus Trickle Down Socialism Ronald Reagan’s economic plan saw GDP surge at a 3.5% clip – 4.9% after the recession. That’s a 32% bump. During the Obama years, thanks to his big government policies, the US economy has stalled. Today the quarterly GDP was announced. The GDP for the first quarter of 2015 braked more sharply than expected at only a .2% pace. The US economy has grown an anemic 9.6% during the Obama years (excluding today’s dismal number). Of course, Obama’s record on job growth is also much worse than President Reagan’s record. Net job growth...

    Sexual assault by law enforcement has been a problem in Oklahoma of late, with three different officers being arrested recently for on-duty sexual misconduct. Oklahoma women are understandably a bit anxious about the threat of being mistreated during a traffic stop, but Captain George Brown of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a helpful tip for anyone who’s worried: If you just “follow the law in the first place” so you don’t get pulled over, you have nothing to worry about! That’s awesome to know, because I’m pretty sure no one has ever been pulled over for a tail light that’s...

    1924: Pep, “The Cat-Murdering Dog” Pep "The Cat-Murdering Dog" was a black Labrador Retriever admitted to Eastern State Penitentiary on August 12, 1924. Prison folklore tells us that Pennsylvania Governor Gifford Pinchot used his executive powers to sentence Pep to Life Without Parole for killing his wife’s cherished cat. Prison records support this story: Pep’s inmate number (C-2559) is skipped in prison intake logs and inmate records. The Governor told a different story. He said Pep had been sent to Eastern to act as a mascot for the prisoners. He and the Warden, Herbert “Hard-Boiled” Smith, were friends. Pep was...

    Greetings! I know there are freepers who have knowledge and experience in just about any area of interest, so I figured we could gather some info/input from you on various treatments/ success stories for Crohn's. I did a search and various interesting articles have been posted, perhaps some of you have other useful links you could share. Over a year ago our youngest was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Not that there is ever a good time to become ill, but this has impacted her studies and immediate University plans. She has been under the care of a physician who has...
