    Picture this: Youre driving home from the casino and you've absolutely cleaned up to the tune of $50,000. You see a police car pull up behind you, but you cant figure out why. Not only have you not broken any laws, youre not even speeding. But the police officer doesnt appear to be interested in charging you with a crime. Instead, he takes your gambling winnings, warns you not to say anything to anyone unless you want to be charged as a drug kingpin, then drives off into the sunset. This actually happened to Tan Nguyen, and his story...

    Apparent'y she had a Trump sign in her yard, and it was stolen. Neighbors around her neighborhood have a few Biden signs out so there are several potential thieves there. She got mad and was going to get an ever bigger one, but saw they had "Women for Trump" signs and liked those better, and put them in areas people can't take them, but are still visible. She was ticked that idiots took her sign, and was like "no one takes the biden signs'. I said well, we don't do that kind of thing. Further, we don't go around the...

  • Trump Pence Signs disappering.

    Asking all Freepers In AZ all Trump Pence signs are disappearing. Most of them overnight, some last 2-3 days. None last a week. It must be an organized effort to get all the Trump signs. It is not just some vandalism as usual, it is an effort to seek and steal all the signs. Apparently some guys running around in the night? I heard it is statewide. Does this happens anywhere else? I heard Texas? What to do?

    Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the indictment against an ex-Kentucky cop for shooting into Breonna Taylors adjoining apartment, saying the call for equal justice was not answered. The Democratic presidential nominee said Taylor, who was killed in a botched police drug raid in March, was shot in her own home by the police. In the wake of her tragic death, we mourn with her mother, family, and community and ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America, Biden said in a statement. I know for so many people todays decision does not answer that call. Bidens statement...

The Carlisle Police Department has heard from many people about campaign signs that have been vandalized or stolen. Sgt.

We absolutely can not be trespassing on peoples property or damaging or taking property that belongs to them, Miller said. So far, Carlisle police say all the signs...

    AstraZeneca, which the Trump administration has celebrated for its vaccine work, boosted prices despite renewed promises by President Trump this summer to keep drug costs in check.

AstraZeneca hiked prices on some of its biggest selling medicines by as much as 6% this...

    John Cartafalsa, 91, was relieved to get home to the Upper West Side after spending five months of the pandemic stranded in Florida. But as he entered his apartment lobby, his eyes were drawn to a disturbing sight. Tucked at the feet of a neighbor waiting for the elevator was Cartafalsas precious Christopher Columbus statue, a gift from a Sicilian-born relative to honor his law school graduation in 1957. For 30 years the 15-inch bronze has held pride of place in an alcove in the lobby of Cartafalsas Riverside Drive co-op. There it remained, unmolested, until 5:55 pm June 29...

    It's well known that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has a long record of hate-listing Christian and conservative organizations that do not agree with their ultra-liberal point of view. They have particularly focused on Family Research Council for strongly defending life issues and for disputing the LGBT's radical agenda. But this week, some very positive steps were taken to combat SPLC's unjust attacks. First, fifteen members of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee wrote a letter to Jeff Bezos, founder and president of Amazon. They voiced their objections to Amazon's reliance on SPLC guidelines regarding which organizations should...

    In a bid to show his foreign policy expertise and prove he is not cognitively impaired, former Vice-President Joe Biden contrasted his planned approach to dealing with China with Trump's. "Basically, I'm saying that Trump's efforts to bully China are un-American," Biden asserted. "He's always blaming China for what's wrong with America. He says the coronavirus came from China, but China says it came from us. I ask myself, who's telling the truth. My gut tells me it ain't Trump." "Trump also accuses China of stealing our technology," Biden continued. "He calls this theft of intellectual property. I'm not sure...
