    I know that not a lot of freepers are Louis C.K fans but I think many others might enjoy it. It looks like he recently started doing stand up again after getting Metooed. It is quite vulgar and definitely not safe for work so please don’t watch if that sort of thing offends you. I couldn’t stop laughing and I just wanted to share.
  • ‘Women’s Healthcare Provider’ Planned Parenthood Mistreats Pregnant Employees

    12/20/2018 5:02:47 PM PST · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | December 20, 2018 | Gabriel Hayes
    Well, well, well, it turns out that Planned Parenthood might not be the immaculate champion of women’s rights they insist to be. Well we all knew that, but it sure is nice to see it as an official story written by The New York Times. In a Thursday report, The New York Times exposed the abortion giant’s “discrimination” against its own pregnant employees. The Times cited the firsthand accounts from several Planned Parenthood employees, including assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston, who complained the “reproductive rights” provider ignored her doctor’s requests that she be allowed to take breaks for the sake of her...
  • ABC, NBC Hype President Trump’s ‘Inevitable’ Impeachment By Dems

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, condemned a group of protesters forcibly removed from a Sunday rally, tying them to her Democratic opponent, former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen. "This Sunday afternoon, the liberal angry mob made it clear they are active in Tennessee and will stop at nothing to disrupt civil political discourse," Blackburn wrote in a statement. "They resisted law enforcement, and they interrupted a moment of silence. Phil Bredesen is their leader, and their behavior is despicable."

    A prominent Wisconsin protester who twice unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for House Speaker Paul Ryan’s seat has been charged with trying to buy a lethal dose of a radioactive substance online. A court affidavit says an undercover FBI agent posing as a merchant on the dark web was first contacted about the possible purchase of an unnamed radioactive substance in March by someone with the username “tigolebitties.” The dark web consists of hidden websites that can’t be accessed without special software. The FBI alleges “tigolebitties” was Jeremy Ryan, 30, of the Town of Madison. Ryan said he wanted to...

Shame!” so loudly that it was difficult to hear him. The questioning goes on and so do the chants, shifting from “Shame!” to “Shame on you!” and eventually to “Look at us!” when Manching seems to be focused on responding to...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), the lone Democrat who will vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confronted by angry protesters outside his office after announcing his position. Manchin’s answers to reporters justifying his position was drowned out by a group of women protesters chanting at him “Look at us!” and “shame!” Manchin looked uncomfortable as he tried to hear reporters questions over the angry crowd. Running for re-election in a state President Trump won by double digits, Manchin is considered a vulnerable Democrat. Trump has endorsed state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) and has campaigned for him, despite Manchin...

    Discourse: The perpetually angry and violent Left is getting out of hand and it’s beginning to show now, even in the nation’s capital. Several GOP members of the Senate had to have police escorts on Tuesday just so they could get past a horde of demonstrators who had assembled in the basement of the Russell Building near the Senate subway terminus. No doubt a large portion of them were being paid to protest by groups funded by that domestic terrorist, George Soros, but the fact that our elected leaders — well, Republicans anyway — must now be escorted by armed...

According to NPR , "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.
