  • Emails show Clinton's interest in arming Libyan rebels despite prohibitions

    FoxNews ^ | 2015 May 28 | Catherine Herridge, Pamela Browne
    Recently released emails detail then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors before the fall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 – though at the time, the opposition was not formally recognized by the U.S. or United Nations, which prohibited arming without following strict guidelines and oversight. The issue remains so sensitive that the emails recently released by the State Department redacted a key line on the matter. But the unredacted version of the same email, released to the congressional Benghazi Select Committee and first posted by The New York Times last Thursday, showed...
  • Flight 370 effort could soon shift from search to recovery

    The team of international investigators hunting for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 has "unquestionably" located the missing jetliner and could soon have high resolution images of the wreck site, an expert in deep sea recoveries of ships and planes told There is virtually no chance that the pings picked up by ships towing sophisticated listening devices could be anything other than signals emitted by the plane's flight data recorder, or "black box," David Mearns, of Blue Water Recoveries, a United Kingdom-based company that holds the Guinness World Record for the deepest ocean recovery and has assisted searches for sunken planes....
  • Second ship picks up 'ping' in Malaysia Airlines jet search

    LA Times ^ | 4/5/14 |,0,5012897.stor
    The Australian military vessel Ocean Shield, towing a sophisticated pinger locator lent by the U.S. Navy, reported Sunday morning that it had picked up a signal, said Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is coordinating search efforts from Perth, Australia. That report comes on the heels of a Saturday night report from the Chinese ship Haixun 01 that it had detected pulse signals both Friday and Saturday at 37.5 mHz, the same frequency used by an airplane flight data recorder.

    Making a list of those who keep the various state ping lists was suggested to me by FreedomPoster. I like good ideas.I started this project wanting to ping every state to stories that were more jaw dropping than usual, e.g.A sensitive matter (The Economist is stepping back from anthropogenic global warming!)Why Are the Feds Trying to Identify All Gun Owners in Missouri? (Just concealed carry!) The basis of this list was cgk's UPDATED MASTER List of FReeper PING LISTS; Vol. VIII - SPRING Edition!

    There exists somewhere in FReeperland, a master list of all of the ping lists, and I used to keep a copy of it on my computer. Unfortunately, when my old computer died, it did so suddenly and I didn't have that particular file backed-up.Jim suggested that I post a thread asking for assistance, because he did not have a link to the thread that I'm looking for. I sent a FReepmail to the FReeper who used to keep the master list and I didn't receive a reply. After looking at the posting history of the FReeper, I see that she...
  • How to join ping list?

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place and I'm doing it the right way. I did a search and couldn't find an answer. I know there are "ping" lists for people interested in certain subjects. I'm a planetary astrophotographer and would like to be on a "space" ping list and also have a great interest in archaeology, in particular Biblical archaeology. Could someone explain to me how the "ping" lists work? Apologies in advance if I'm asking in the wrong play and wrong way.

    Over the past few weeks I've been compiling various ping lists via requests on some of my Freep posts. This is the first viewing offered. It's sparse; I'm sure there's plenty more Freep ping lists out there. And it's not viewed by millions. But I will put the URL in my sig line when I post on FreeRepublic and I'm a frequent poster. I will also be designing a big banner on my sidebar for folks who read my regular Blog posts. Might get some attention. There's instructions on the post how to add your ping list to this Blog...

    Seton Hall Constitutional ^ | 2001 | Roger Roots
    Police work is often lionized by jurists and scholars who claim to employ "textualist" and "originalist" methods of constitutional interpretation. Yet professional police were unknown to the United States in 1789, and first appeared in America almost a half-century after the Constitution's ratification. The Framers contemplated law enforcement as the duty of mostly private citizens, along with a few constables and sheriffs who could be called upon when necessary. This article marshals extensive historical and legal evidence to show that modern policing is in many ways inconsistent with the original intent of America's founding documents. The author argues that the...

    Here we are in a nation being inundated by illegal aliens, so much so that states are having to take what should be federal responsibility into their own hands to try and end this flood of illicit immigrants, and Barak Obama's Sec. of Labor is announcing to illegals that she intends to help them get paid "fairly." Hilda Solis has a new video out promising to get illegals "every cent they earn." You see, "every worker has a right to be paid fairly whether documented or not," Solis helpfully tells us. So, while the country is facing a flood of...

    The most recent master list of ping lists is from 2007 (over two years old - egad!). So, after another FReeper suggested tonight that we need an updated master list, I figured, take some initiative. Anyways, if you have a ping list, or more than one, (please) say so on this thread so I can compile a new master list over the next week. [Apologies if this duty was someone else's and I accidentally took over.] Thanks! :)
