    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 12/16/2015 | SUNDANCE
    Last week there were six unique encounters between President Trump and U.S. journalists where the topic of illegal aliens and family border separations was brought up. It seemed odd at the time because the issue has not been a topic within discussion. These exchanges culminated in CBS correspondent Leslie Stahl asking the same question repeatedly during a 60 minutes interview on Sunday night. Now things become clear. There are thousands of Honduran migrants traveling north to the U.S. border timed to arrive in conjunction with the mid-term election. Obviously an engineered narrative timed by the political left and media allies....

    The Special Counsel’s office confirmed on Tuesday that lawyers Kyle Freeny and Brandon Van Grack left the team. Both lawyers were involved in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s case. Van Grack is also involved in the Michael Flynn plea, and Freeny is involved in the indictment of 12 Russian agents. A spokesman for the Special Counsel’s office says that Freeny will leave the office in mid-october and will return to her job at the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section. Van Grack has already concluded his time in Mueller’s office and has returned to...

    With my new investment influx into the company I've been green-lit to start hiring. I'm looking for a developer and for the first time using Indeed and LinkedIn to post this job. This whole thing is very, very funky and it's very different than the last time I looked for work. Maybe what I have to say will help job seekers here understand what the process looks like and clear up some questions, frustrations and the golden answer : "Why does no one contact me back?!"

    Regardless of whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is ultimately confirmed by the Senate or not, the circus surrounding it will have a tremendous impact on our body politic. The #MeToo movement, which has helped many female victims receive long-begotten justice in high-profile cases, is now being utilized as a partisan weapon by the Democratic Party, who will stoop to any level to manipulate the emotions of the citizenry to win November's crucial mid-term elections.All Republicans need to take a deep breath, shake themselves out of their cloud of anger, and try to learn lessons from the chaos and calamity...

    The PURE study included data from 136,384 participants (35-70 years old) in 21 countries. They were grouped into four categories: no dairy (28,674 individuals), less than one serving per day (55,651), one-two servings per day (24,423), and over two servings per day (27,636).One standard serving of dairy was equivalent to a glass of milk at 244 g, a cup of yoghurt at 244 g, one slice of cheese at 15 g, or a teaspoon of butter at 5 g.Dairy consumption was highest in North America and Europe (368 g/day or above four servings of total dairy per day) and lowest...

    It’s a kangaroo court. Understand, this is not about Christine Blasey Ford. She’s a tool — a quite willing tool, but a tool all the same. This is not even about the eminently qualified federal circuit-court judge Brett Kavanaugh — it would be no different regardless of which nominee President Trump selected in consultation with White House counsel Don McGahn, the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, and the rest of the originalist, conservative legal community come of age. Democrats do not want a model of constitutional fidelity and judicial restraint elevated to the Supreme Court. End of story. And who...
  • (VANITY) Explanation of why the Trump de-classification is important

    09/19/2018 6:08:31 AM PDT · by rlmorel · 39 replies
    There have been multiple threads with posts that demonstrate that many people don't see the importance (and just as often or even more so, the futility) of President Trump's decision to declassify the FISA applications and FBI interview related documents. For reference, the FISA applications are referred to as 702 documents and FBI interviews are known as 302 documents. So. Why is this declassification important? It is vitally important for two main reasons: First, it is going to demonstrate Media complicity in the propagandizing of this "Russian Collusion" hoax perpetrated by various entities and people throughout the government. These documents...

    Investigative Journalist James O’Keefe is set to make public a new investigation that will “unmask” and “put a face to the individuals who seek to disturb the fabric of our Republic.” The investigation was teased in a 30-second trailer released on Friday under O’Keefe’s non-profit organization, Project Veritas. According to O’Keefe, the investigation will be viewable for the public sometime next week. “What we’re releasing next week… we must expose them in their own words. We’re going to make the hidden deep state individuals internet famous,” he said Saturday.

    The gut-wrenching slide of the 2008 stock market crash is unforgettable for those caught in it. In the six weeks from the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy on Sep. 17, the stock market lost over 40 percent of its value. A quarter of trading days had plunges of 4 percent or more. Investors saw life’s savings dissipate. Traders saw a year’s work and bonus compensation vaporize. The Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury, which had been scrambling to cope with the developing financial crisis, accelerated their efforts to a frenetic pace, developing program after program to stem the panic. A chart of the...

Lot's of thick accents.I think they were used by locals to say something about their being locals (like virtue signalling with the Radical Left). They are saying that they are members of the local club. Lot's of "ha bad it" 's (that means "how about it") and "I heard dat" (yep, that means...

    This is my personal assessment of this movie. Run, don't walk, to see this hilarious romantic comedy in your nearest theatre. I haven't laughed so hard in a movie theatre in years. My husband enjoyed it as much as I did. I need to see it again, since many of the jokes are culturally based, but there was enough there to keep just about anybody entertained. It received a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Many of the reviewers seemed to have Asian names, so it doesn't look like they were offended at the humor. The audience where I viewed it...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Some North Carolina elementary school teachers were initially told they would lose their jobs if they didn't pass a Math test they call difficult and unfair. Teachers say they recently got a call from their school district informing them they have another year to pass the test. Hundreds of teachers have failed the test repeatedly. Teachers argue what's on the test has nothing to do with what they teach in a classroom for students in Kindergarten to 5th grade. "Never in a million years would we even come close to teaching some of the topics on...
  • 5 Things to Know About the New Tick Species in the US

    Live Science ^ | August 7, 2018 06:43am ET | Rachael Rettner,
    A tick species that's native to Asia has now spread to the United States, and it's popping up in numerous places along the East Coast, according to U.S. officials. Females can reproduce asexually and lay thousands of eggs. Female longhorned ticks don't need a male to reproduce. They can spawn asexually using a process known as parthenogenesis. After feeding, a single female can lay around 2,000 eggs, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. That's enough to establish a tick population in a new location, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says. They suck so much blood, it can cause...
