  • Putin praises Trump on economy, says Russia collusion claims are ‘invented’

    Allegations of collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s election campaign were “invented” by Trump's opponents, Vladimir Putin said Thursday while praising the president's “serious achievements” in office. “All of this has been invented, made up by people who are in opposition to President Trump with a view to shedding a negative light on what [he] is doing,” the Russian leader said at his annual televised news conference, calling the allegations “very bizarre.” Those behind the claims are trying to “impede” Trump’s agenda and are damaging the U.S. political system by failing to respect voters who chose the president, he added.
  • (vanity) How will you celebrate Earth Day?

    So, how will Freepers be celebrating Earth Day 2017? Personally, I will be clearing an area in the backyard to set up for a compost pile and organic vegetable garden. But first, I need to burn the tires that are there; and I'm thinking that my used motor oil will make an excellent accelerant.

    “Russia views these not as U.S. sanctions, but Obama sanctions, so he will go and we can both decide that we don’t bear any responsibility for the actions of a jackass,” Fyodor Lukyanov told Bloomberg News. Fyodor Lukyanov is chairman of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, a Kremlin foreign-policy advisory group. Russia is displaying grace, restraint, reason and humor in this matter as Obama launches accusations against the Kremlin and inflicted retaliatory sanctions. "Russia hopes that it can ride out the storm and put relations with the U.S. on a better track once [President-elect] Trump takes office," said...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu headed to Moscow this morning, for his third visit to the Kremlin in nine months, as Israel-Russia ties continues to burgeon. The meeting is the fourth one between Netanyahu and Russia President Vladimir Putin during the same period, after the pair also met at the sidelines of the recent UN climate change conference in Paris. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has also met with Putin during that time, even cancelling a trip to Australia to visit the Russian leader at the Kremlin. In an illustration of the growing alliance between their two countries, this time Netanyahu is...

    Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, joined by representatives of other Orthodox churches, recalled the 1000th anniversary of the death of St. Vladimir, prince of Kievan Rus' and a key figure in the evangelization of the Slavic peoples. "We do not forget that the light of the Orthodox truth came to us from the shores of Bosporus, from Constantinople," Patriarch Kirill said on July 27 at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow. "In spite of all difficult historical circumstances, this spiritual bond has never been broken. I believe that the ties existing between us will continue to strengthen the whole...

    Having spent a significant amount of time in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I have lost almost all of my appreciation for Earth Day. Sure, I believe that we as humans have a responsibility to ensure that our planet remains clean, and to use our resources with care and consideration for future generations. But there's a big difference between environmental stewardship and whatever Earth Day is about - even if you don't consider that the co-founder of Earth Day stayed as true as possible to his commitment by composting even his ex-girlfriend. In Ann Arbor, they would celebrate it by hosting a...

    Wednesday is Earth Day. Like Earth Hour in March, this celebration will be yet another complaint-fest about how our modern lifestyles, especially our CO2 emissions, are destroying the planet. Why not be positive, for once? Instead of blaming carbon “criminals,” maybe Earth Day should celebrate carbon heroes. Here are the 10 countries with the lowest CO2 emissions per capita, according to the World Bank.

    More Americans believe in God than in man-made global warming ... how remarkably resilient Americans are in the face of relentless environmental brainwashing. The schools, the universities, the government, the green NGOs, Hollywood and the MSM have invested billions of man hours and dollars trying to persuade them that climate change is the greatest threat of our age. But according to this survey, only 33 per cent are buying it - ... all the latest research suggests that the importance of CO2 and other greenhouse gases has been grossly exaggerated in the various computer models predicting catastrophic global warming, which...
  • We Need A New Earth Day To Correct The Old One

    The first Earth Day, in 1970, was celebrated after a wave of environmentalism swept the nation. Many give credit to Rachel Carson's 1962 book, "Silent Spring," which popularized the notion of large-scale chemical pollution, for igniting the movement. But she was really feeding off of a concept developed a few years earlier. The "precautionary principle" was conceptualized when the National Academy of Sciences proposed a radical change in the risk assessment of exposure to radiation and carcinogens. It recommended changing the regulatory paradigm from a "threshold dose" model to a linear one.
  • Earth Day: Hail Fossil Fuels, Energy Of The Future

    On Earth Day, according to various advocates, "events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment." As we observe the event Tuesday, it might be a good time to appreciate the fact that Americans get most of their plentiful, affordable energy directly from the Earth's "natural environment" in the form of fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). It's largely those energy sources that fuel our vehicles and airplanes; heat, cool and light our homes and businesses; power our nation's factories; and in the process significantly raise our standard of living. Shouldn't that be part...

    Happy Earth Day! April 22nd is the day when President Obama and the rest of the gang demonstrate their commitment to saving the planet by flying in to plant a tree somewhere. And say what you like but, when you're looking for fellows who know how to dig a huge hole, Obama and Harry Reid are pretty much at the top of the list. My township in New Hampshire is 90 per cent forested, but you can never have too many trees, so on Earth Day I always like to plant a couple more, get the tree cover in my...

    Today, masses of human beings around the globe will celebrate the worship of the earth ... not God ... not the creator—but the creation. Rocks will be worshiped, rivers will be worshiped, trees will be worshiped, the sun will be worshiped, fish, snails, spiders, and all sorts of creeping things will be worshiped today. Grown-up, adult, men and women will bow down to “THINGS,” to idols, in fealty to a god of their own creation. They will offer their lives in service to, well, NOTHING. And these are grown-up people, adults, human beings you would think would have the intelligence...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin fired back against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday calling him a "silly little man" after he said that he was not interested in invading Alaska. Putin downplayed the value of Alaska during a question-and-answer session in Moscow today, pointing out that it was a cold northern territory. “What would you need Alaska for?” he said, advising Russians "not be overenthusiastic” about the state. “Mr. Putin, such a silly little man on this matter of invading Alaska,” Palin said in a written statement to Breitbart News, pointing out that it was obvious that Russia got...

    There was coverage of the prospect of this happening by the time Quotes of the day went up last night, but this morning it seems the news is official. A deal has been struck, and it’s pretty much everything Vladimir Putin was insisting on and nothing that the Obama administration wanted for insurance. ... I’ve been watching some talking heads on CNN this morning trying to spin this as some sort of a win-win, but that sounds like an awful lot of lipstick to try to paint on one rather sickly pig. On the plus side, if you weren’t interested...

    Thousands of cars flying white ribbons or white balloons circled central Moscow on Sunday in a show of protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. The cars jammed the inner lanes all along the 16-kilometre Garden Ring, which has as many as 16 lanes of traffic at its widest points. More protesters stood along the side of the road waving white ribbons and flags as the cars passed, their horns blaring.

    Vladimir Putin has launched an extraordinary attack on US Senator John McCain in which he also implicated Washington in the killing of Libyan dictator Col Muammar Gaddafi. The Russian prime minister called the former presidential candidate “nuts” in response to Twitter comment about Russia’s parliamentary elections that drew allegations of fraud and triggered large protests. Mr McCain’s tweet read: "Dear Vlad, The Arab Spring is coming to a neighbourhood near you." Mr Putin turned stony faced when asked about the tweet on his annual televised phone-in. "Mr McCain fought in Vietnam. I think that he has enough blood of peaceful...

    Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Friday three top Russian officials should spend New Year's Eve in the dark after failing to fulfill their promise to repair damaged power lines. "You said everything would be fine by 1800 (1500 GMT)," Russia's de facto number one said in nationally televised comments to the three. "You should not have said anything if you were not sure," he added during a meeting that included the governor of the Moscow region as well as federal energy minister and the head of the local power utility. The televised comments were followed an hour later by news...

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates is “deeply misled” to suggest that Russia is undemocratic and that its security forces are in control of the government, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said in an interview to be shown Wednesday. In a State Department document unearthed in the WikiLeaks releases, Gates is quoted as saying, “Russian democracy has disappeared and the government was an oligarchy run by the security services.”

    Biblical apologetics, at its most basic, is the reasonable presentation of God's truth as a witness that glorifies the Creator. Such a testimony can have surprising--and long-lasting--results. A crisis in 986 A.D. changed the social and political history of Russia forever. Who would have guessed that the Russian empire's young Viking king Vladimir would be so impressed with the history of Genesis that he permanently changed Russia's course from West to East? A Pagan Ruler Vladimir, Prince of Novgorod, was not expected to rule Russia, because his older half-brother Yaropolk succeeded their father, King Svyatoslav. But after a number of...
