    Back in 2009, the Sci-Fi series "V" had a re-boot on ABC-TV, which only lasted a year. It starred Morena Baccarin and Scott Wolf. Someone on FR posted a clever photo of promo ad for "V" with the letter "O" in the form of the letter "V" of the show, in dramatic red, and then a photo of a half-Obama, half-lizard with the NYC skyline in the background. I've been trying to find this photo for a few months, but cannot locate it through archives. Also, please tag any FR member related to Sci-Fi Ping Lists. Thanks very much! -Silvie-
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Pius V, Pope (Gueranger)

    White Double WE HAVE ALREADY MET WITH the names of several Pontiffs on the Paschal Calendar. They form a brilliant constellation around our Risen Jesus, who, during the period between his Resurrection and Ascension, gave to Peter, their predecessor, the Keys of the kingdom of heaven. Anicetus, Soter, Cauis, Cletus and Marcellinus, held in their hands the palm of martyrdom: Leo was the only one that did not shed his blood in the cause of his Divine Master. Today, there comes before a holy Pope who governed the Church in these latter times; he is worthy to stand amidst...

    FORT HUACHUCA -- As the future of warfare continues to evolve, on a local level, it’s nice to know that one thing is certain: “the future looks bright” at Fort Huachuca. These words were shared by Gen. Mark Milley, the 39th Army chief of staff, during yesterday’s visit to the Fort. “(Fort Huachuca) is the heart and soul of our intelligence community,” he said. Milley’s visit, which he said was initiated by U.S. Rep Martha McSally, was established so that he could gain a better understanding of Fort Huachuca’s mission and role within the Army as well as an opportunity...

    In the spectacular 2005 film, V for Vendetta, the globalist elite establish a tyrannical government in the United Kingdom after launching a number of false flag terrorist incidents. The libertarian freedom fighter ‘V,’ breaks into the main government communications center in London. After seizing the TV station, V goes on the air and broadcasts to the people of London, in what is probably one of the greatest anti-government scenes in film history. During the broadcast, V states, among many other things, that “the truth is, there’s something terribly wrong with this country.” The same can be said for the US...
  • Memo to George Will, Bill Kristol, and All GOP ‘Never-Trumpers’: Good Riddance!

    Mediaite ^ | June 27, 2016 | by Matt Schneider
    If for some reason, though, Kristol and Will believe Trump poses such a unique threat to America and to the Republican party’s legacy, then one final and admittedly simple point should have put them at ease long ago. Trump is not running for dictator, but instead for President of a country with a strong system of separation of powers and checks and balances in place. The Republican party that Will foolishly and haphazardly abandoned will, at all times, be in Congress to reign in any of Trump’s outlandish proposals. Therefore, all “Never-Trumpers” should take a deep breath and realize that...

  • GLENN BECK--TED CRUZ SOCK PUPPET

    03/28/2016 1:37:08 PM PDT · by cradle of freedom · 21 replies
    Cruz is always talking about himself as if he is above it all, he is the responsible one, he is the grownup and the honorable one. Yet he allows Glenn Beck to declare that Cruz is "anointed for the time" and Cruz says nothing and I don't believe that this has been brought up on television. Beck has totally gone off the cliff in his grandiose promotions of Cruz and his outlandish insults to Trump voters. He has said "all through out the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God", "no real Christian says I want that guy"...

    Hotel magnate Donald Trump donated $5,000 to Sen. Ted Cruz's leadership PAC in January, according to new campaign records. Trump's show of support for the Texas Republican's leadership PAC -- the maximum allowed under the law per election cycle -- is an indication that the men are becoming political allies. The relationship between Trump and Cruz initially appeared to get off to a rocky start. In August, Trump said he wasn't sure whether Cruz could be president because he was born in Canada. But in the months that followed, Trump has spoken favorably about the Tea Party darling, who has...

    Hacktivist group Anonymous has begun publishing the personal details of members of the Ku Klux Klan as its campaign of cyberwar against the white supremacist group escalates. Anonymous, the amorphous online activist collective, last week promised to reveal the identity of 1,000 members of the KKK after coming into possession of the private information through a compromised Twitter account associated with the group.

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo ordered emergency measures on Sunday to combat the wage theft and health hazards faced by the thousands of people who work in New York State’s nail salon industry. Effective immediately, he said in a statement, a new, multiagency task force will conduct salon-by-salon investigations, institute new rules that salons must follow to protect manicurists from the potentially dangerous chemicals found in nail products, and begin a six-language education campaign to inform them of their rights. Nail salons that do not comply with orders to pay workers back wages, or are unlicensed, will be shut down. The...

For this is what Amos says: Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be exiled from its land." To Amos, Amaziah said: "Off with you, visionary, flee to the land of Judah!

According to the reports in Al Watan and other news outlets, the warehouses were completely destroyed.

    Yemen's crisis is getting worse and then some. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies have started bombing rebel positions inside Yemen. The Sunni Kingdom added that it would do "anything necessary" to deter the Iran-backed Shiite rebels who are taking over Yemen and trying to oust US-backed President Abd Rabbah Mansur Hadi. A Saudi source told Reuters that ground troops might be needed in Yemen to "restore order." Saudi Arabia is reportedly contributing as many as 150,000 troops and 100 warplanes to the campaign against the Houthis.

    Yoga pants are under attack. Lately, they have been a hot topic on Facebook, blogs and other corners of the web. Some say they are too tight. Others complain that we, as a society, have lost all sense of modesty. The question has been posed: Should women wear yoga pants in public? For one state legislator in Montana, the struggle against yoga pants is real. No. Seriously. From the Billings Gazette:

    An extraordinary bright orange flash has lit up the sky in Russia’s Sverdlovsk region in the Urals. While locals captured the massive ‘blast’ on numerous cameras, both scientists and emergency services still struggle to explain the unusual event. Dark evening skies in the town of Rezh in Sverdlovsk region near Russia's Ekaterinburg turned bright orange for some ten seconds on November 14, with the event being caught on several cameras by the locals. A driver filmed the massive flash with his dashcam, later posting the video on YouTube, with more people commenting they’ve seen it too. Teenagers in the town...

    Egypt’s former defense minister and presidential candidate, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is Jewish, according to Egyptian journalist Saber Mashhour. Mashhour’s comments were posted to the internet on April 20 and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). He claimed that Al-Sisi grew up next to Israel’s former Chief of Staff and Defense Minister, Moshe Dayan. […] Al-Sisi and former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, he claimed, are “one and the same. Both were raised in Khoronfish, in the Jewish Quarter.” …

Wade. prolifeimage45“While the most recent data indicate a decrease in the annual number of abortions, tragically, more than 3,000...
