    NY Gov Coumo was just the most recent Lefty to say "America isn't Great". We should have a long list proving otherwise, handy for all to post on Social Media in response when this foolish notion is pushed. If we don't get 100 items in a list within a day, I'll be sorely disappointed in FR!!!

    Insanity: Despite the fact that you could bury the world’s trash in a minuscule portion of the Earth, Left-wing environmental wackos are hell-bent on getting as many modern conveniences banned or regulated as possible. In recent months they’ve managed to convince liberal lawmakers and policymakers that plastic straws will destroy the planet if they are not banned from at least some major cities. Now these same goofballs are coming after another party favorite: Balloons.
  • A "Trumpster" "Blue Collar" street guy scores big in Connecticut Senator Primary.

    08/14/2018 6:26:38 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 23 replies
    Republican, maverick, Matthew Cory has been declared the winner of the Republican U.S. Senate primary in the great state of Connecticut, this evening. He will face, the boring useless, incompetent, do nothing, Trump hating, Democrat, Chris Murphy, who has been declared a "safe seat" for the Democrat Party. Mr. Cory is a blue collar worker, a building window washer and owner of a local bar. He has little money or funds for campaigning. Thus far, he has held local, small, little house meetings as best he could. But...I think folks in Connecticut have taken heed of this talented, self-taught, human...
  • A woman's lament: Please don't grow an effing beard

    It's tempting to think of the beard as a kind of "return to our ancestral roots" (ironic), but it's not quite as simple as that. Don't kid yourself, hairy paleo diet dude who just can't squeeze a shave between CrossFit sessions. Cavemen plucked their beards with clam shells, Little Mermaid-style, exhibiting a degree of care and attention that so many men today seem happy to dismiss. Men throughout the ages have oscillated between beard-having and not-having, from Alexander the Great's shaven soldiers, to the bushy-chinned Victorians. If the men in my life are anything to go by, there are several...

  • Fans Outraged Gay Actress Ruby Rose Isn’t Gay Enough to Play Batwoman

    Disney's forthcoming film The Jungle Cruise will include a prominent gay character, a first for the company. Sounds like a progressive milestone, right? Not according to the intersectional left: Jack Whitehall, the actor cast in the role, is straight—and, gasp, white—which is very problematic. The CW fared little better in casting Ruby Rose to portray Kate Kane in its upcoming Batwoman show. The character is a Jewish lesbian; Rose is gender fluid and part of the LGBT community, but not Jewish, which isn't good enough for those who think the actor must check off all the same boxes as the...

    Do we finally have the answer to POTUS’ question, “Who knows the true meaning of covfefe?” Tweeted on May 31, 2017. Below is a link to an interview with Macaulay Calkin, who talks about an island he visited in Thailand that turns out to be a pedo island. The name of the island is Ko Phi Phi. Could President Trump have been trolling the deep state pedophiles? Had one of them visited there around the time of his tweet? Start listening at 8:15. https://youtu.be/yWMRnw0MNMg

    A Tennessee convicted child rapist and killer on Wednesday picked a deluxe burger combo as his last meal before his execution -- the first in the state in nearly a decade. Billy Ray Irick, 59, chose the combo that included a super deluxe burger, onion rings and a Pepsi soft drink, the Tennessee Department of Correction said Wednesday. Irick, who is being held at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville, will eat his last meal before his execution, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday. The name of the restaurant that prepared the meal was not released “out of...

    A Florida tourist died Tuesday, two days after he reportedly was punched in the face by a driver he may have mistaken for an Uber driver in New York City. Sander Szabo, 35, died at the hospital two days after the driver of an SUV delivered a blow to the Florida native’s face, causing Szabo to fall back and slam his head into the pavement, police told the Palm Beach Post on Wednesday. Szabo was in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens returning to his hotel just after 1 a.m. Sunday when he was hit.“When he was hit, he...

This has been long in the planning. The first indicator was Obama/Jarrett setting up their HQ in DC. The second indicator was Obama's takeover of the DNC, ejecting Keith Ellison, to give Perez full control. All staff were kicked out, presumably replaced by Obama bootlickers. 3. We have seen Obama's people activate their slaves in social media, as well as in the MSM, while courting Hollyweird and Netflix. Their task :...

    Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap. Representatives for Bautista also did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Disney fired Gunn in July after offensive old tweets were resurfaced as part of a campaign against Gunn spearheaded by right wing media personality Mike Cernovich. Gunn, who previously apologized for those tweets in 2012, wrote in a statement that he understood and accepted Disney's decision. Bautista, who plays Drax in the "Guardians" movies and "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers 4," has been one of Gunn's most outspoken defenders, calling the effort that got him...

    Ruth Wilson’s character, Alison, was killed off in a major surprise last night on Showtime’s “The Affair.” The show was recently renewed for a fifth and final season next year. Alison was part of the show’s main quadrangle with Dominic West, Joshua Jackson, and Maura Tierney. Wilson won a Golden Globe award for the role. But in February Wilson complained about pay parity on the show when she discovered how much more West, her scene partner, was paid.
