    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | October 28, 2020 | ConservativeInPA
    You would expect that after two nights of riots, 30+ law enforcement officers injured, and businesses looted in Philadelphia that the "above the fold" story in city's leading newspaper would be related to that. Guess again.I'm at a loss for words. These leftists live in an alternative reality.Click the normal article link to view the home page for (the web presence for the Philadelphia Inquirer, once one of America's great daily newspapers.)
  • Egypt: How a Fiercely Christian Nation Became Fanatically Islamic

    One of the benefits of Adel Guindy’s new book, A Sword Over the Nile: A Brief History of the Copts Under Islamic Rule, is that it implicitly answers an important question: how and why did non-Muslim nations become Islamic?  In this case, how did Egypt go from being overwhelmingly Christian in the seventh century to being overwhelmingly Muslim in the twenty-first century?  To understand the significance of this question -- and because pre-Islamic Egypt’s profoundly Christian nature is often forgotten -- a brief primer is in order: Before Islam invaded, Egypt was home to some of Christendom’s earliest theological giants and...

    In a limo, not a hearse (we're pretty sure), people 55 or older can arrange a ride to vote on Election Day in cities from Nashville to Los Angeles. People 55 or older in certain U.S. cities can fill out a form asking for a free ride to the polls on Election Day from a local funeral home. The project is a partnership between the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association and the National Urban League and is operating in Baltimore, Detroit, Kansas City, Los Angeles, and Miami. Participating funeral homes will be using their non-hearse fleet vehiclesoften SUVs or...

  • Asteroid Apophis Could Still Hit Earth in 2068, New Measurements Suggest

    Gizmodo ^ | 27 Oct, 2020 | George Dvorsky
    Only a small handful of objects are known to pose a serious threat to Earth, and the gigantic asteroid Apophis is one of them. Scientists are now re-evaluating its potential to strike our planet in 48 years, owing to improved observations of the problematic asteroid. Observations made earlier this year from the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii are providing astronomers with a better sense of how the Yarkovsky effect is influencing the orbital path of asteroid 99942 Apophis. This effect is like a built-in propulsion system for asteroids, in which trace amounts of leaking radiation can alter an objects momentum in...

    Its just the flu, bro. A Freeper posted this yesterday - New Mexico will spot check restaurant employees with Coronavirus tests. The Coronacrat infrastructure is only at 50% capacity. There is so much more that lefty states can, and will, do to make us all safe from the Coronavirus. The unemployed service workers can officially leave the private sector and become enforcers in the coronacrat army.

    American Thinker ^ | 28 Oct, 2020 | David Keltz
    Fifty-six years ago this week, Ronald Reagan endorsed the Republican senator Barry Goldwater for president of the United States, during his famous A Time For Choosing speech on October 27th, 1964. Although Goldwater did not win in that election, Reagan helped breathe new life into the Republican party for generations to come by winning over the American people with his ideas, and his optimism for the future of the country. In that speech Reagan, outlined Goldwaters vision for the nation and spoke of the divergent paths that the two presidential candidates intended to lead the country down. If we lose...

  • Huge difference between liberals and conservatives

    The News & Observation | 28 October 2020 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    A huge difference exists between liberal leftists and conservatives. Generally, liberals will organize, group together and defend one another while executing evil deeds EVEN WHEN THEY DON'T KNOW EACH OTHER. They put aside differences for the moment until they are able to overcome the good forces that oppose them, THEN they fight with each other. Not always, but the vast majority operate that way. Conservatives, on the other hand, seem to argue about what is the right way to do something, are somewhat difficult to organize for taking positive action and tend to group together IF IT INVOLVES FAMILY OR...

    During the recent presidential debate Vice President Joe Biden inadvertently spoke the truth about the commitment of the Democratic Party to phase out oil and replace it with renewable energies eliminating fracking in the process. Donald Trump immediately seized upon it, "Basically what he is saying is he is going to destroy the oil industry." "Will you remember that Texas? Pennsylvania? Oklahoma? Ohio? Trying to clean up the fracking mess he just created, Biden recited the Democratic Partys poetry of dreams, Theyre not going to lose their jobs, and besides, theyre gonna theres a lot more jobs that are...

    There's a major drama playing out over the course of time, and Rush Limbaugh symbolizes some of the bigger themes in it. Rush Limbaugh is battling Stage 4 cancer. As many of us know, this is a debilitating process during which the patient fights not only the cancer, but the effects of the treatments that kill the cancer because those treatments are also toxic to the rest of the body. Rush Limbaugh has lived a particularly important life in modern America. Almost single-handedly, he carried the fight to the left over the airwaves, years before many even understood who...

    A former Hunter Biden business partner said Tuesday he was warned against going public with information about their business dealings when another ex-partner told him: Youre just going to bury all of us. During an appearance on Fox News, Tony Bobulinski said he spoke with former partner Rob Walker to demand that Walker get US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to retract his claim that The Posts recent reporting on Hunter Bidens emails was part of a Russian-orchestrated smear on Joe Biden. Host Tucker Carlson then played a snippet of an audio recording that Bobulinski said was part of the phone...

    NY Post ^ | 10/27/20 | Emily Jacobs
    Rep. Ilhan Omar expects Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, if elected, will become far more progressive than the moderate he has presented himself as. Speaking during an interview with Axios on HBO that aired Monday, Omar (D-Minn.) made the comments after being asked what kind of negotiating power progressives will have with a Biden administration. A president is only as successful as his collaboration is with Congress. And we will have a cohort of progressives that are very clear about their objectives for wanting the implementation of Medicare-for-all and a Green New Deal and raising the minimum wage and not...

Court records obtained by the news outlet also show Wallace had a criminal history. In 2017, he pleaded guilty to robbery, assault and possessing an instrument of crime, according to documents obtained by Fox News. Authorities said he kicked down the door of...
