    KATOWICE, Poland (AP) — Arnold Schwarzenegger says he wishes he could travel back in time like the cyborg he played in “The Terminator” so he could stop fossil fuels from being used.“If we would’ve never started in that direction and used other technology, we’d be much better off,” the actor and former California governor said Monday at the start of a U.N. climate conference in Poland.“The biggest evil is fossil fuels: it’s coal, it’s gasoline, it’s the natural gas,” he told conference delegates.
  • Trump’s latest tweets cross clear lines, experts say: Obstruction of justice and witness tampering

    President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning, haranguing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and witnesses to his ongoing Russia investigation. His tweets have become a common morning occurrence, particularly in recent weeks. But legal experts are calling Monday’s missives a newsworthy development that amounts to evidence of obstructing justice. Trump’s first statement went out after Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney who pleaded guilty last week for lying to Congress about the president’s real estate project in Russia. In his tweet, Trump alleged that Cohen lied to Mueller and called for a severe penalty, demanding that his former fixer...
  • Curtains for the Clintons

    The snow is falling lightly. My thoughts are racing darkly. I’m feeling something foreign, something I’ve never felt before. It takes me a moment to identify it. I’m feeling sorry for the Clintons. In the 27 years I’ve covered Bill and Hillary, I’ve experienced a range of emotions. They’ve dazzled me and they’ve disgusted me. But now they’re mystifying me. I’m looking around Scotiabank Arena, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it’s a depressing sight. It’s two-for-the-price-of-one in half the arena. The hockey rink is half curtained off, but even with that, organizers are scrambling at the last...

    A 36-year-old man has been arrested in Nassau County after deputies say he stabbed a woman in the head with a fork, during an argument over a baked potato. According to the arrest report we’ve obtained from the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to a residence on Susi Lane around 11:30 pm on Sunday, after receiving a call that a person had been stabbed. When deputies arrived, they made contact with the victim, who had multiple stab wounds and blood on both sides of her head, according to the arrest report.
  • ‘Robin Hood': The Biggest Blockbuster Bomb of 2018

    Lionsgate’s take on Sherwood Forest suffers worst opening of any film this year with a budget above $90 million Lionsgate’s “Robin Hood” is turning out to be this year’s biggest blockbuster bomb, with a $14 million five-day opening against a budget of just under $100 million. This year’s Thanksgiving weekend has provided the most lucrative box office ever. But even with all the record-breaking success, there have been some failures in 2018. Most of those bombs, like Paramount’s “Annihilation” and Fox’s “The Darkest Minds,” have had low-to-mid-level budgets that have reduced how much of a financial hit their studios have...

    Co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony officiated by Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) over the weekend, Vanity Fair reported on Sunday. The celebrity morning television hosts held an intimate ceremony attended by a handful of people on Saturday in Washington's National Archives, the first time a wedding has been held there, according to the magazine. They reportedly chose the quiet post-Thanksgiving date to keep the wedding under wraps. “We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe,” Brzezinski told Vanity...
  • Ladies, wake up. The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you.

    Ladies, wake up. The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you. It just elected a woman-abusing thug to become Attorney General in Minnesota. One of its judges just ruled a law banning genital mutilation of females to be unconstitutional (think about that). That Party has been completely co-opted by radical Islamism, trans-genderism and the woman-and-child-abusing Hollywood culture. You continue voting for its candidates at your own risk. How many more examples do you need?

    The idea of a mechanized walking suit to carry you around seems like a great idea, but having a practical leg assembly for it is still a futuristic concept. As seen here however, if you’re still a kid, you might be able to get your dad to carry you around in a custom suit fashioned after a MechWarrior vehicle. The suit is beautifully designed by creator Gridlock Cosplay, and features an Arduino-powered control system. This allows the little pilot to command the mech’s human “engine” via a joystick and system of lights. The suit also features exterior and interior lights,...

    For the fourth installment in the franchise, the studio says, "Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called 'Forky' to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy." The dreamy teaser trailer features everyone's favorite toys floating through the air, set to Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now." Midway through it, a frightened Forky screams, "I don't belong here!"...

    This is the 20th anniversary of my years at FreeRepublic. I joined on November 9, 1998. I found a home here and have enjoyed my almost daily visits. Some of the most fascinating people have passed through the FR portal and the beautiful format allowed for sustained conversation and deep education of this fledgling conservative. FR also has provided much support and guidance through the talents and knowledge and kindnesses of its members. Tied down with four children to support, homeschool, and raise, singlehandedly, I was never able to make any of the events and was sad not to attend...

    Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 We are witnessing some of the ugliest dehumanization we have seen since the Jews in Germany against a half of America by the DNC as a political strategy. This is a well used strategy to eliminate an opposition which has been used over the past hundred years which leads to some horrific results. Of course marching racist, sexist, homophobic, Nazis to the camps is a good thing. The Three Pillars of Propaganda (Academia, Media and the...

    An Indonesian airliner was delayed for an hour after passengers complained of an overpowering stench released from a load of the notorious thorny fruit durian, according to reports. About 2 tons of the world’s stinkiest fruit was in the cargo hold of the Jakarta-bound Sriwijaya Air flight at Bengkulu in Sumatra, the BBC reported. Boyke Ledy Watra, a reporter with Indonesia’s Antara news agency who was aboard the fetid flight, said passengers began arguing with the crew — with some almost coming to blows with flight attendants. The airline eventually agreed to remove the offending fruit and the plane took...
