  • Early Voting Saves Two Lives

    10/23/2018 5:19:44 PM PDT · by Hillbilly sage
    Charlotte Sun | 10/23/2018
    Our early voting started yesterday at the Charlotte Mid-County Library. The title article caught my eye this morning. Two Republican poll workers arrived, much earlier than normal library opening, and had just exited their car when they saw a car go airborne into the canal adjoining the library property. They ran to the canal, one grabbed a brick from the landscape edging to break windows. Both jumped in and found an elderly couple in the rapidly sinking car. The couple had been able to roll the windows down but the door locks would not release. The poll workers each pulled...

    Powdered Wig Society ^ | OCTOBER 19, 2018 | THOMAS MADISON
    FULL TITLE: The control freaks at Fascistbook are censoring pro-life conservatives, but doing nothing about pro-abortion groups that post trash like this There are few absolutes in life, but one thing you can trust as surely as the sun rising tomorrow is that the liberals at Facebook (and Twitter) are a miserable lot who hate life, unless it’s their own, of course. They love their own lives. They just don’t want anyone else to enjoy life and are using their censorship powers to prevent pro-life conservatives from advocating for life and against the horrific abomination we know as abortion. There...
  • U.S. Media Refuses to Inform the Public When Its Commentators and Pundits are Paid Foreign Agents

    Liberty Blitzkrieg ^ | 22 OCT 2018 | Michael Krieger
    Unbelievably – Rothkopf has the audacity to criticize Trump for having “repeatedly shown great fondness for foreign leaders—even despots and known murderers, human rights abusers and criminals”, while Rothkopf himself is literally a paid agent working to disseminating propaganda for one of the most repressive regimes on the planet, one that does much of the Saudis’ dirty work for it in Washington. And the fact that the Daily Beast makes no disclosure of any of this is what makes this practice – having paid lobbyists and consultants for foreign regimes and corporations masquerade as objective and neutral analysts of the...
  • The Great Biofuel Swindle

    Over the past decade, “biofuel” has been a major buzz word in the world of clean energy and environmental science. As the topic of advanced biofuels continued to trend over the years, investments and studies ballooned accordingly. Now, however, with a bit of hindsight it has become clear that the vast majority of chatter and speculation about the “next big biofuel” set to change the energy landscape was just hot air. Many claims made by energy startups, blogs, and think tanks were a bit short of credible, to put it lightly. A laundry list of companies over time claimed that...

    In the third quarter of the nineteenth century, when he was confronted with damning evidence of Tammany Hall corruption, William “Boss” Tweed famously challenged anyone who made such an accusation with this taunt: “Well, what are you going to do about it?” That’s how powerful and invulnerable Boss Tweed thought he and his cabal of cronies were. They ran New York City with an iron fist and believed they could do whatever they pleased to line their pockets. Tweed got away with his illicit gains for some time before justice finally caught up with him. Ultimately, he was arrested, convicted...

    California is in dire straits. We are fighting like crazy to oust Democrat rule; Florida, you need to do the same--unless you want leftist California politics taking over your state. Dear Florida Voters, Unless you want to turn into high-tax, high crime, heavily regulated, low-freedom California, think carefully about your vote for Governor. I highly recommend Ron DeSantis for Florida Governor. How did Andrew Gillum, the self-anointed “democratic socialist” candidate for governor of Florida, the most failed mayor in all of Florida win the Democrat nomination? His candidacy is a stunning indictment of how far Left the Democrat Party has...

    There are plenty of cloud providers that are equipped to bid for the Pentagon’s contract This year, hackers seem to be having a field day accessing our personal data. Google exposed hundreds of thousands of users data on its Google+ social network. Facebook was attacked and hackers gained access to the personal data of some 30 million users. Yet, these strikes pale in comparison to what is perhaps the most serious concern: Chinese manufacturers has been installing micro spy chips inside servers. This recent discovery raises many red flags as to China’s ability to hack into our secret government computers...

    The party of globalism, open borders, and mobs promises years of Kavanaugh style show trials From the “You can’t make this stuff up” Department: It is beyond me how the Communists, I’m sorry I mean the Socialists, oh excuse me, I mean the Democrats are able to peddle the bilge they’re spewing this election cycle. But I’m sure that a significant segment of the voting public will swear this bilge is rose water come Election Day. Now if these Soros-Clinton-Pelosi-Waters supporters were knuckle-dragging, drooling Neanderthal types, I could understand it. However, I personally know many very intelligent people who prove...

    The caravan headed for the border for Election Day is not carrying thousands of poor migrants looking for safe space for their women and children. It’s carrying rowdy, paid activists of the Democrat Party How do you say “YAHOO!” in Spanish? “YuJu!” In English, people might say “Yahoo! Santa is coming tonight.” “¡Yuju! ¡Papá Noel viene esta noche! says the same thing en Español. In a video showing mostly military age men on their way to storm America’s southern border, well organized activists in the ‘March-of-the-made-to-order-Migrant Caravan’—speeding truckloads of them— seem to be yelling out: “Yuju!”

    Good afternoon. My name is Mike Kehoe. I am FReeper number 13,500 and I was born on October 23, 1998. Like many FReepers, I found Jim Robinson's house through a link from Drudge. It was March 1998 and Jim's house had all kinds of problems. From the flame wars to the Whitehouse basement. From the Italians (html) which produced chaos in the Forum, to funding a website which was experiencing a BOOM in growth. I thought at the time, I'm not signing up here to post, it is dangerous (along with death threats and lawsuits). So along comes FR's March...

    By now, we should all be familiar with Corner Store Caroline, the latest in a long line of white people crying to authorities over imagined transgressions by black people. Caroline (real name Theresa Klein) called the police ― or, at least, appeared to ― on 9-year-old Jeremiah Harvey, accusing him of sexual assault. After surveillance footage corroborated all of the witness accounts detailing that the boy had merely brushed Klein with a bookbag as they walked out of a small New York market, Klein offered an “apology,” saying “I was wrong.” She told ABC 7, “Young man, I don’t know...

    The Lid ^ | 10/22/18 | Jeff Dunetz
    When I was a child, my Mom used to make me have a glass of milk before I left for school in the morning, and more at bedtime. At the time she said it was healthy and built strong bones. But according to PETA, she was turning me into a white supremacist. For those of you who just did a Danny Thomas “spit take” of your milk, or who laughed a sip of milk through your nose, allow me to assure you this isn’t an attempt to milk some laughs for the site—it is true. Wait a blooming second! People...

    Just two weeks away from the November midterm elections, the first test of President Trump’s staying power, and a new poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found the 45th president’s approval rating at an all time high of 47 percent. This is up 10 percentage points from just six months ago. Why is the Donald finally getting support nationwide? Just look at what he has accomplished and how many promises he keeps. Even Joe Scarborough is giving the president the credit he deserves. Here’s what he said of Trump recently: “I can tell you, especially with Pat,...

A majority of the casualties from the terrorist attack were members of 1st Battalion, 8th Marines. 1864: In Westport, Mo. (present-day Kansas City), Maj. Gen. Samuel R.

    FULL Title :"Media Hides Laughable Turnout For Obama’s Nevada Speech While Trump/Cruz Rally Saw Thousands In Attendance" The media has tricks it can use to make it seem like a Democrat has far more support than he or she actually does, and proof has recently surfaced to show just how true that is. Former President Barack Obama’s recent speech that attacked Republicans and the President — though he never mentioned Donald Trump by name — was widely covered by the media, seemed like it was a must-see/must-attend event for Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen, currently struggling against incumbent Republican Sen. Dean...

    The next two weeks will be see a huge barrage of faked polls, fake “expert” predictions, verbal and physical attacks on Republicans and anyone even appearing to support Republicans. The polls have already ceased being anything but puff piece bouquets to failing Democrat candidates. That is the reality; and while nothing can make this better for Democrats, it can actually and probably get worse for them. Every Republican candidate is now Donald Trump and every Democrat candidate is now Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters rolled into one. Last night’s Trump/Cruz rally in Houston was attended by 23,000 inside...

    Barack Obama was onstage at the University of Nevada doing a familiar, uncomfortable job. He was here to rally Democrats and to fight cultural tides the party didn’t quite anticipate.Obama spent much of his speech on a long defense of his own presidency, and condemnation of Republican governance. “When you hear all this talk about ‘economic miracles’ right now, remember who started it,” Obama said. He denounced Trump’s attempts to pressure the FBI and Department of Justice to target political foes. “That is not how America works. That is how some tin-pot dictatorship works,” he said.

    Barack Hussein Obama rallied an estimated 2000 fellow travelers (per ABC, so probably smaller) at the Cox Pavilion at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which reportedly holds up to 3200, ostensibly to support Jacky Rosen. There was a much larger arena right next door sitting empty, for obvious reasons. Meanwhile, President Trump rallied a crowd 10 times that size in Houston to support Ted Cruz. At the his rally in Vegas Obama seemed to entirely forget why he was there, mentioning Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), who is running for Senate, only 4 times. One of the times was at...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Well, of course she did. – Bad comic Amy Schumer – niece of Chuck Schumer – held a press conference in which she announced all the Democrat candidates who she, in her infinite wisdom, wants everyone else to vote for. Almost as an afterthought, she also announced she was pregnant. We all have our priorities in life, and these are hers. America’s Biggest Mistake suddenly reappears on the campaign trail, and boy is it rich. – Barack Hussein Obama – who had mysteriously disappeared from the campaign trail after making a big...
