    OSAKA (Kyodo) -- Yokozuna Kakuryu's awkward win kept him atop the standings with Brazilian maegashira Kaisei on Monday, the ninth day of the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament. The yokozuna was nearly blown out of the ring by a powerful but uncontrolled final charge from No. 4 maegashira Shodai (5-4), but Kakuryu made his escape tip-toeing along the ring's straw-bale border as Shodai thundered out. The Mongolian could barely control his smile after snatching victory from defeat. He had opened brightly, but Shodai repulsed his charge and seized the initiative. Everything was going the youngster's way until his failed attempt to...
  • Galaxy S9 drop test: The back cracked, but the screen held up

    If there's one thing our drop tests have taught us it's that phones with glass backs do not hold up well when dropped on concrete sidewalks. We didn't expect that to change with Samsung's new Galaxy S9. It uses the same Gorilla Glass 5 material as the previous Galaxy S8, and the Galaxy Note 8 both on the front and back of the phone, and it has the same curved edges on either side. The back of the Galaxy S8 broke on the first fall from hip height in our previous drop test, but the screen remained intact despite dropping...

    It's not easy living life in the public eye. With all the pressure that comes with leading a public life, from the Senate to the White House, Michelle Obama *must* know a thing or two about work-life balance. And in finding that balance comes happiness. In a recent interview with Refinery 29 for International Women's Day, Obama sat down to speak with a number of girls from around the world to talk about the importance of girls' education and empowerment. When asked by 20-year-old Pearl Quarmyne, from Ghana, about her "most effective daily habit," Obama responded in the sincerest way....

I suspect Algore is becoming a tad frosty AND grumpy since his Globalist, NWO GLOBALONEY WARMING SCAM is falling apart before his eyes. Not to worry about old Al. The $500 million or so he's scammed over the years will allow him to stay snug - not to mention crazy - as the proverbial bedbug he's become.

    Two young reporters have schooled Brian Stelter on the role of journalists . . . On his Reliable Sources CNN show this morning, Stelter tried and failed to get his two young reporter guests to join him in freaking out about President Trump. Stelter began by saying that when he reads stories in the news, “I get worried about the country; I get worried about the President.” He then asked 25-year old Olivia Nuzzi of New York magazine, “do you get worried, Olivia?” Nuzzi wouldn’t bite: “No, that’s not my concern. My concern is to figure out what is going...

    Right. And I’m the flippin’ King of Siam. Cesar Vargas, an illegal immigrant, told Tucker Carlson tonight: “I’m an American. Citizenship does not make me an American.” Tucker pointed out that citizenship is precisely what makes someone an American. Carlson also objected to Vargas repeatedly referring to what “we” as Americans have done. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    With all that’s going on in this report from the Free Beacon, it’s amazing that our military is still hitting all of its recruiting goals. But somehow they are. They don’t have all that many people to pick from, however. Just as the military is entering into a period of renewed expansion, there are fewer qualified candidates and even fewer expressing an interest. According to the Pentagon, if every person in the country age 18 to 24 showed up to apply, roughly three out of four would have to be turned away because they simply couldn’t qualify. Nearly three-quarters...

    On his CNN show this morning, Jake Tapper raked Broward Sheriff Scott Israel over the coals for his department’s mishandling of the Parkland school shooting. Israel bobbed and weaved, but at one point his ego revealed itself. After claiming that as sheriff he has provided “amazing leadership,” Israel vaingloriously boasted that if he had been at the school: “I would have been the first in.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

  • Scarborough Justifies: Parkland Deputy Didn't Go in Because he Was "Overmatched"

    Joe Scarborough said he wasn't justifying the failure of the Parkland deputy to enter the school during the shooting. But that's exactly what Scarborough did. On Morning Joe, Scarborough said: "There actually was a 'good guy with a gun,' as the President and every NRA member will say. There was a good guy with a gun at a school. There was a law enforcement officer with a gun at the school. And he didn't go in. In part, I am sure, because he was overmatched. Now, that's no justification."

    Social media and politics go crazy whenever there's a crime that involves a mass shooting and guns. However, there's something that kills a lot more people on a daily basis and we need to talk about that problem before we try to fix a gun issue. America has a massive drug problem right now. Did you know that nearly 64,000 people died of a drug overdose in 2016, and that number is more than the number of people who were killed in the Vietnam War? We need to refocus and put our efforts and political arguments towards drugs because 64,000...

    In December, the Daily Caller reported on the “verbally abusive” environment that Chris Matthews has created on the Hardball set, adding that people “felt like they had to ‘walk on eggshells’ around their ‘abusive’ boss.” Matthews flashed that thin skin on this evening’s Hardball. When guest David Corn politely pointed out that the TV series in question was “Homeland,” not “Homefront” as Matthews had said, Matthews snapped: “You going to keep correcting me?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Feminism and liberal hatred of themselves and America are guilty of murdering our political, social, cultural, and religious institutions. They are acting with deliberate malice of forethought, motive, means, and opportunity. Like larva burrowing up from the rotting carcass of their International Communist dream, they have co-opted the Soviets plan to destroy America from within. In this, they have succeeded beyond Lenin's wildest dreams to divide America by race, sex, class, ethnic background, and religion under the banner of diversity. Their weapons have been Multiculturalism and Politically correct abridgment of our speech, and the Democrat Party. Their cry has been...

    We on FR are spending a lot of time investigating things. We have several excellent approaches to this including 1. Creating "maps" that link the players to each other. Who works for whom? Who is married to whom? Who is related to whom? Who met with whom? 2. Creating timelines. What happened and when? I'd like to suggest that we add a new tool to our arsenal: 3. Let's stop and try to think like an evil, lawless liberal. First we have to figure out what he/she is trying to do. Then we need to brainstorm about how he/she would...

    I have followed Q drops. Interesting but I cannot decide if they are legit. I also have followed some people on Twitter until I decided to de-activate my account. As I read what Rick Wilson said about the memo I was reminded about a very early theory, actually claim, about the dossier. It was said on this site that a guy on 4chan made up the salacious details and passed them on to Rick Wilson who took action. Wilson is clueless but mean. What happened to that bit of "fact"? It leads me to be skeptical of Q. At least...

    Of course! Who wouldn't want to leave ESPN's flagship show, viewed weekly by millions, and move to an obscure website read by . . . dozens? In October, Jemele Hill was suspended by ESPN for, among other things, calling President Trump a "white supremacist." ESPN more recently announced that Hill would be moving from her role as SportsCenter host to writing for a website called The Undefeated. On Al Sharpton's MSNBC show today, Hill claimed that her move from SportsCenter to The Undefeated was "100% my choice." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
