    I locked my car. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went back and locked my car again three times. Each time, as soon as I started to walk away, I would hear it unlock again!! Naturally alarmed, I looked around and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store. They were obviously watching me intently, and there was no doubt they were somehow involved in this very weird situation . I quickly chucked the errand I was on, jumped in my car and sped away. I went...

    Antifa had been attacking us all night. They were arrested for beating and robbing a reporter. Antifa ambushed Proud Boys on their way home and threw a glass bottle of urine at them (they had been throwing them all night). Max and Geoff happily took them up on their offer and ran up to them. Max pulled off their masks while Geoff punched them. At first, antifa were winning. They kicked Proud Boys on the ground. Then John showed up and bowled them over. Proud Boys won the fight and stopped immediately. The police asked antifa if they wanted to...

    n 2019, it should not be a controversial opinion to say that a seven-year-old boy shouldn’t be forced into transitioning into a girl. It shouldn’t be, yet we all find ourselves right here (see Transgenders ‘Detransitioning’ on the Rise. And the LGBTQ Community Isn’t Helping. and Father Shares Heartbreaking Story of Son Who’s ‘Transitioning.’ And He’s Powerless to Stop It.). A jury just ruled against a father trying to stop his son’s mother from turning the boy into “Luna.” Oh, so this is happening in the United Kingdom? No. Oh so this is happening in Canada, Justin Trudeau’s land of...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have to 'renounce their royal privileges ' ahead of any planned move to South Africa, a royal expert has suggested. The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, voiced their desires to live in the country on ITV's Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on Sunday and charted the pair's ten-day tour in South Africa. However royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter told the New Zealand talk show Breakfast that there are a number of reasons a move to South Africa cannot occur while the couple remain members of the royal family.

    NORTH EASTHAM — Thursday night marked the first time the public had an opportunity to weigh in on a recently released report on shark detection, deterrence, exclusion and other alternatives intended to keep people safe, or at least safer, when they enter the water at Outer Cape Beaches. “There’s a lot of techniques out there, and none of them are all that perfect, that’s what it comes down to,” said Todd Morrison, an oceanographic engineer for the Woods Hole Group, which produced the Outer Cape Shark Mitigation Alternative Analysis. The report was prepared under a $50,000 contract paid for by...

Anthony Daniels has portrayed the character in each movie and across multiple mediums for over four decades, and his time as the character is coming to an end in J.J. Abrams' newest film.

A statement from The Carter Center said the former President remains in good spirits and looks forward to recovering at home.

    American Thinker ^ | 10/19/2019 | Monica Showalter
    Could "Tulsi" maybe be Sanskrit for 'Dorothy'? Hawaiian presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is racking up quite a reputation for melting down the political scene's evil old hags. Following a creepy frontal attack from embittered former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, claiming that Republicans are "grooming" Gabbard to be a third-party candidate and Gabbard was a Russian agent all along, Tulsi fired back: Whoa. Truth hurts. And it's not her first time uttering it. Gabbard's blast at Hillary recalls the one she delivered to Sen. Kamala Harris at the second Democratic debate:(snip) Now Gabbard's taking on Hillary, stating the truth about...

    The Organic Prepper ^ | October 19, 2019 | Daisy Luther
    A term coined in 1985 by an unnamed staffer of the Reagan administration was “Starve the Beast”. This referred to a fiscally conservative political strategy to cut government spending by paying less in taxes. So, in the original sense, “the Beast” was the government, and people were to starve said beast by spending less and using loopholes to pay less in taxes. Now the Beast is a whole lot bigger. These days the Beast has a lot more tentacles than just the government. The system now consists of the government and all aspects of corporatism. Big Agri, Big Pharma, Big...
