    This morning a post was pulled regarding the discovery of Mastadon bones in maybe Indiana. The reason cited for pulling it was "chat". I don't get it. The article was NOT a vanity; it was a published news article. Things like that are interesting and should be allowed. For God sake, they let a letter jumble puzzle be posted every morning. Does FR have a defined criteria as what is allowed and what is not. This kind of thing has happened more than once. Yes, it is Robinson's site and he can do what he wants, but to me this...

    Ever since the failed witch hunt against the Covington boys in Kentucky, a lot of leftists have been ranting online about ending charter schools, Catholic schools because it "breeds "white supremacy". Why? What's their end game?

    FaceBook POLL (AOC) | FaceBook POLL question
    This is my first “Breaking News” post. As a newbie on FR I hope this post helps me understand the thought process of other members of this forum. I ran across this poll on FaceBook which has been posted in several FaceBook groups that I follow. I think it is worded well but has very few responses so far. It is early Friday morning. lol My purpose for posting it here in Breaking News is that I think Face Book will pull it if the votes don’t produce the intended results I don’t know if a FaceBook account is required...

    WASHINGTON — The 2020 electorate will be the most diverse yet, according to a report released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center. One-third of all eligible voters will be nonwhite — a new high — driven by younger voters aging into the electorate for the first time and older voters aging out. Immigration is also a factor, with 10 percent of potential voters expected to have been born abroad, up from 6 percent in 2000. For the first time, Hispanic voters are expected to be the largest nonwhite portion of the electorate at 13.3 percent, overtaking black voters who are...

    ‘APPLAUSE LINE!’ — Pelosi repeatedly tells mayors to clap for her Speaker of the House can’t speak. That’s an applause line. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was like a mother hen to America’s mayors on Wednesday, telling them when to clap for her. After claiming Democrats support “strong border security initiatives,” she said, “Do you want to— let’s hear it for border security!” as she held her hand up to call for a response. “The American people elected a House majority that would— that’s an applause line! Not for everybody maybe.” The House Speaker suffered several bizarre flubs. “And we will...

    Tucker Carlson monologue excoriating famous journalists and celebs who put the Covington Catholic students in danger, some even fantasizing about assault and murder, is one of the best he’s ever done. "They were primarily attacked for having white skin." After the truth emerged, famous liberals who were previously frothing at the mouth went on a mad scramble to delete their tweets full of hate, slander and disinformation. The internet never forgets, however, and neither does Tucker Carlson. Here are the guilty who get called out...

    Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has never been one to hold back on his criticism of President Donald Trump, and that's no exception during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. While the Spurs volunteered Monday at the Champions Against Hunger dinner, a fundraiser for the San Antonio Food Bank, Popovich spoke his mind on the government shutdown, now in its fourth week. "It's just a shame that so many people are affected by what President Trump and our politicians have done. We all know it's really for no good reason," Popovich told reporters. "It's a prop. It's childish. Petty....

    Los Angeles, CA — A disturbing case of police rape has surfaced out of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department this week as a detective assigned to handle victims of child molestation cases was arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl. The girl was a victim in a case the officer was investigating and had already been raped by someone else. Detective Neil Kimball, 45, was assigned to the Special Victims Bureau, a unit tasked with investigation cases of sex crimes against children. Kimball was arrested on Friday on suspicion of rape by force and “preventing or dissuading a witness or...

    The Durango Herald ^ | November 17, 2018 | Frank Bruni
    Time and Donald Trump do interesting things to a man. They make Al Gore glitter. It’s almost impossible not to be thinking of Gore now, with the words “Florida” and “recount” so prominent in the news, and it’s hard not to credit him with virtues absent in Trump and increasingly rare in politics these days. Grace in defeat, for one. For another: a commitment to democracy greater than a concern for self. Sure, the review of ballots that Gore’s campaign demanded in 2000, as he and George W. Bush waited to see who would get the Sunshine State’s electoral votes...

    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as “a part of her time.” These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that don’t always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...

    Have you ever noticed that it’s only “alternative news” (as in non-establishment) outlets that get deplatformed by social media/payment processors/Internet domain registrars et al for spreading “fake news” and/or “hate speech”, whatever those Orwellian terms mean? And today, just in time for midterms, we got word that social media giants decided to engage in a final purge of dissenting voices on their so-called platforms. Because they are not platforms which allow free speech and a free flow of ideas,as per their initial claim, but something else, since they chose to editorialize content and to censor/ban whomever they see fit.

    Democrat Andrew Gillum has a 5-point lead over Ron Desantis (R) in the upcoming Florida gubernatorial election, according to a poll released Tuesday. The NBC/Marist Poll found that 48 percent of likely voters surveyed said they would vote for Gillum if the election were held today, while 43 percent said they'd support DeSantis. Seven percent of those surveyed said they remain undecided. Results are expectedly skewed based on party affiliation, with 90 percent of Democrats backing Gillum and 86 percent voicing support for DeSantis.

Multiple women have now come forward with allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.1,2 Last week, Donald Trump and Republican senators proved over and over that they care more about helping men escape consequences for sexual harassment and assault than about making sure a liar and potential sexual predator isn't confirmed to the Supreme Court. We have to push back now. Tell Senate Republicans: Stop trying to jam through the confirmation of an accused sexual predator to the Supreme Court....
  • Can a lesbian feminist ever win the presidency in the future?

    Serious question here. We know that the Democratic Party is the identity politics party. They like to pander to women, black, Latino, millennial, gay, white women, etc. They nominated and elected the first black man (Barack Obama). They nominated the first woman (Hillary Clinton), but failed. They'll try to run a woman or a Latino candidate, potentially. However, do you see Democrats nominating a lesbian feminist, and could that person win the presidency in the future, especially since the Left controls the media, academia, etc.?

    In Thursday’s Washington Post, columnist Max Boot provides a call to arms for those who seek to oust the sitting president of the United States. His column claims that the presidency has now been shown to be illegitimate because of this week’s allegations and that Congress should have already acted on impeachment. None of this is surprising, Trump’s has been the photo on Boot’s dartboard for some time now, but in his zesty finale, Boot may have revealed a bit too much. He writes: The voters of the United States must now say to this Congress what Oliver Cromwell said...
