    Smuggling gangs in Mexico have continuously sawed through President Trump’s controversial border wall using every day power tools, according the U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the incidents. The security breaches, made with a popular cordless reciprocating saw that can sell for less than $100, has been used to open gaps large enough for people and drug loads to filter through. When fitted with 'specialized' blades, the tool can break through one of the wall's steel and concrete bollards in just minutes. The Washington Post reports that after slicing through a bollard, smugglers will push the steel out of...

    I am leaving FR after the owner instructed me to not post on a Trump thread. I posted a list of the people Trump and his AG have failed to indict and imprison even for sedition. Some of you have seen me post this before. I never was warned or suspended. Every word I posted was true. I even post options Trump had, when he entered office, but he chose to give the criminals a pass by appointing a weak AG. I came to FR at a time I was leaving the Libertarian Party for its unacceptable Abortion, Immigration, and...

    Freeper Madness "Words had to change their ordinary meaning and to take that which was now given them. Reckless audacity came to be considered the courage of a loyal ally; prudent hesitation, specious cowardice; moderation was held to be a cloak for unmanliness; ability to see all sides of a question, inaptness to act on any. Frantic violence became the attribute of manliness" -Thucydides

    There’s nothing scarier than finding out that there’s something in your house trying to kill you. Unless it’s just your pet cat. A Twitter user claimed he was having trouble breathing in his sleep, so he set up a camera to see what was going on at night. What he saw, however, was somehow both adorable and also terrifying (as only cats can pull off). *Twitter skip* Luis Navarro posted on the social media site three pictures taken while he was sleeping. His cat can be seen getting closer to his face until it eventually just sits directly on his...

    Viking Cats – DNA Study Shows the Crucial Role Felines Played in Viking Life Apr 12, 2019 Reginald Martyr After conducting extensive research, scientists believe that they have stumbled upon an interesting revelation concerning the history of cats, a species which is among the world’s most popular pets today. New findings suggest that eons before cats became household pets across the globe, they were the frequent companions of ancient Vikings, in some cases accompanying them as they sailed across the globe. The first-ever major examination and analysis of ancient DNA from our feline friends provided these rather unexpected preliminary conclusions...

    American Verizon workers say mass layoffs are coming as soon as next week in exclusive statements to Breitbart News. Essentially, the deal for the 44,000 workers forces them to resign and take the severance or stay on at the corporation until they are eventually laid off and not eligible to receive the hefty severance package. As Breitbart News reported, Verizon has announced that it will outsource its IT department to Infosys, one of the biggest multi-billion dollar outsourcing firms in the U.S. that has been accused of undercutting American workers and discriminating against black and white Americans in favor of...

    n the first large-scale study of ancient feline DNA, the results reveal how our inscrutable friends were domesticated in the Near East and Egypt some 15,000 years ago, before spreading across the globe and into our hearts. The study was presented at the International Symposium on Biomolecular Archaeology in Oxford, UK back in 2016, and sequenced DNA from 209 cats that lived between 15,000 and 3,700 years ago - so from just before the advent of agriculture right up to the 18th century. Found in more than 30 archaeological sites in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, these ancient feline...
  • My Outline for a Federal Wealth Tax

    08/01/2018 | Brian Griffin
    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...

    We’re not saying that every time your cat does something weird it’s a signal of an impending natural disaster, but you might want to start paying attention. Because, as this security footage shows, cats apparently have a sense for that kind of thing. This footage was take at the Cat Café Catchy in Japan, when an earthquake struck Osaka in June. Moments before the café started to shake, the cats seem to react to a loud noise or a thump. They jolt awake, looking around as if expecting to see what woke them from their naps. Then the building begins...

They're all a part of a global war being waged by the United States. To some, the war is one of nation building and global dominance, to others it's a life or death battle for the greater good. On the global chessboard, there are three major players. The United States, Russia and China. All of the other players are nothing more than pawns. This game has been playing out for decades, but it can only have one winner. To better understand...
