    The Salem-Keizer Volcanoes will start their baseball game Aug. 21 at precisely 9:35 a.m. local time, but will pause after one inning — then, NASA representatives will come out, the home team, visitors, staff and spectators will put on their eclipse glasses, and the stadium will be plunged into darkness. As a total solar eclipse passes across the United States on Aug. 21, activity will grind to a halt as the sky darkens. But in Keizer, Oregon, the minor-league baseball team is prepared — three-day eclipse festival, NASA livestream on the Jumbotron, special uniforms and all. "We ordered thousands and...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has written 275 briefing papers for the incoming Trump administration: nearly 1,000 pages of classified material on North Korea’s nuclear program, the military campaign against the Islamic State, tensions in the South China Sea, and every other kind of threat the new team could face in its first weeks in office. Nobody in the current administration knows whether anyone in the next has read any of it. Less than three days before President Obama turns the keys to the White House, and the nuclear codes, over to President-elect Donald J. Trump, Mr. Trump’s transition staff...

    A Missouri school district’s superintendent has apologized to the community after students turned their backs on a rival school’s basketball team in what some are calling a racially motivated display. According to KSHB-TV, during a basketball game between Warrensburg High School and Center High School, Warrensburg students turned their backs on Center’s team as the school’s starting roster was announced. One of the students held up a campaign sign for President-elect Donald Trump. The Kansas City Star described Center’s basketball team as “predominantly black.” “Where it went over the line is when they held up the [Trump] sign,” Warrensburg R6...

    Dear Freepers, are any of you volunteering for Team Trump in your state? I did that here in California for the primaries, now I have been invited by Team Trump to volunteer for the general. I am just a bit confused as to the script or template the Team is using. If any of you are also volunteers, is it clear to you how to make the calls and what to ask the caller? It would be great to chat with another volunteer.

    Republican presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are teaming up in opposing the Iran nuclear deal. According to NBC News, Cruz has invited Trump to Washington for an upcoming rally against the deal. The two are set to appear at an event organized by the Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Politics, and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), according to the Cruz campaign. Mort Klein, the ZOA president, said the rally has been in the works for weeks, though Trump's inclusion is a relatively new development. "I think it's of great value to have a person...

  • Team Fighting Championship: yeah, it’s insane

    05/14/2015 11:00:52 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 16 replies
    A new sport has arisen within the fighting universe in Poland: Team Fighting Championship (TFC). If you’ve ever imagined what a professional looking, all out fight between two rival gangs would look like in an arena, this is it. Two teams of five fighters are let loose in the ring, accompanied by five referees, where they punch, kick, and knee the living hell out of each other until just one team is left standing. The only major rules are that “forbid blows to the Adam’s apple, groin kicks, biting and spitting,” but there are no rules that prohibit the four...

    <p>Benedict Cumberbatch says he was an “idiot” to refer to non-white actors as “colored.” The Academy Award-nominated actor used the word on PBS talk show “Tavis Smiley” last week while discussing diversity in the entertainment industry. He said that “as far as colored actors go,” there were more opportunities in the U.S. than Britain, “and that’s something that needs to change.” British anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card said it welcomed Cumberbatch’s comments on diversity but felt the term he used was “outdated.” In a statement Monday, Cumberbatch apologized for his “thoughtless use of inappropriate language.”</p>

    Ahead of President Obama’s annual picnic with members of Congress, the White House prohibited television cameras and photographer access to the event. Only allowing print pool reporters were allowed to cover Obama’s speech. That annoyed White House reporters including ABC News reporter Jon Karl, who pointed out that it was a change from year’s past. “In a break w/ past practice, the WH is prohibiting TV & photo coverage of today's Congressional picnic at the White House,” he noted on Twitter.

    In recent years, I have heard certain military personnel, usually Marines, bragging that they never leave a comrade behind—even a dead comrade.Let’s think about that.For one thing, I call it a “purported” policy because I am not sure it is the official policy of the Marines or any other unit. I even wonder if it is a Marine policy that has been proclaimed by Marine privates without consulting with the Commandant of the Marine Corps. If so, the Commandant has not been quick enough or loud enough at correcting the notion that the Marines never leave a dead comrade behind.The...

    If you’ve seen the recent big screen stories of US Navy SEALS in Afghanistan, in Lone Survivor and Zero Dark Thirty, you are no doubt struck by the sacrifices these elite warriors make on the modern battlefield and the impeccable examples of heroism these movies have portrayed — not propaganda but truth. However, there is another US Navy SEAL story from Afghanistan that’s not receiving much attention, simply because its truth is an indictment of failure on the part of the Obama administration, US Congress, and senior military leadership. It is the story of the fate that befell a CH-47D...

    President Obama hit the campaign trail again this week in an effort to reboot support for Obamacare as the failed rollout continues with a broken website and broken promises. Speaking from the White House Tuesday, Obama declared "Obamacare is working," and that we "aren't going back." But for Obamacare to truly be "working" for the American people as promised when the Affordable Care Act was passed, it must in fact be affordable. We've seen the opposite. Young people will pay double under the ACA, young women will see their health insurance premiums increase on average by 193 percent and five...

    The idea that every town must have a police SWAT team is relatively new. While just a handful of big cities had SWAT teams 30 years ago, now 80 percent of towns with populations between 25,000 and 50,000 have them. Now there is one fewer. Quietly and with no public debate, Framingham’s SWAT team has been disbanded.  Chief Steven Carl gave the order as he and the SWAT commander left the department for other jobs. Carl told me the disbanding of the SWAT team wasn’t just something he did on the way out the door. Two years ago he told...

    Not only did former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta leak the name of the Navy SEAL group responsible for the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, but the release of the Pentagon Inspector General’s (IG) report revealing the incident, which was ready in July 2012, was delayed until now. In the spring of 2012, GOP members accused Barack Obama’s administration of leaking national security secrets to help Obama get reelected, but the administration denied it. At a CIA awards ceremony on June 24, 2011, Panetta named the SEAL group and its commander. Among those present were 1300 military and...

    The president´s recently formed grass-roots campaign operation revealed Thursday that it plans to attack Republicans who question radical global warming hype, dubbing them "crazy" purveyors of "far-fetched conspiracy theories." In a fundraising memo from President Obama´s re-election campaign manager, Organizing for Action slammed "climate deniers" and their doubts, which Jim Messina compared to the nutty things a crazy uncle would say at Thanksgiving dinner. After listing some of the arguments critics make against the president´s drive to use regulations and taxes to curb carbon dioxide emissions he believes are contributing to global warming, Messina wrote: "Sounds like things your
  • Team Obama spamming fake twitter messages to support gun control

    "Obama's anti-gun campaign is a fraud," Stockman said. "Obama's supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress," he added. "I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign."Stockman said that in response to Obama's call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people.
