    To: Admin Moderator Glad you brought FR back up. However, a really annoying quirk surfaced about a full week before the site went down, and persists now. It appears as if every thread is re-posted as a new thread, as many times as the number of replies to it. This makes it very difficult to scan the site quickly for breaking news. The multiple threads ("hiccups") are not affected by my Account settings, Page Layout, or anything else under local control here. If this is an experiment in "Bumping to the Top," please revert back to the normal method of...

    Go to CNN and use their "SEARCH" function. Not one single story or mention of "Antifa" on their website - the violent 'anti-fascist' group behind vandalism and assaults on Trump supporters and other conservatives. #FAKENEWS

    A couple of years ago, our paper which serves two large counties, switched from doing its own national review of AP and other source stories and started using the USA Today national insert. People at that time objected because of the extreme left-wing slant of the USA Today staff, but the paper cited costs. Well, during the Presidential campaign, USA Today was in for Hillary with both feet. Then came all the 'fake news' and the chief editor of the paper is now asking the readers if we want to go back to the paper vetting the stories or keeping...

    What Effect will Manchester Bombing have on Federal Judges Rulings Immigration Ban Will this tragedy have any influence on the thoughts of these liberal federal judges who have blocked Trump's efforts to keep the US safe from potential terrorists. If they keep blocking the ban executive order will America hold them responsible for the next attack here at home. When another terrorist attack occurs here they should be prosecuted and or persecuted on being complicit

    Here’s something you don’t hear every day: a naked man was shot in the face early Friday morning after jumping off a train in Topock, AZ, damaging water pipes near an electrical box and causing a power outage at an elderly couple’s home. According to The Daily Courier, a 72-year-old woman saw the naked man, identified by Mohave County Sheriff’s officials as 25-year-old Joshua Daniel Reza of Needles, CA, approaching her home after the power went out. Her 86-year-old boyfriend had left her alone to go check the electrical box.

    Conservative Tribune ^ | 5/20/17 | John Falkenberg
    In a hilarious, if embarrassing, turn of events, as students were marching in at the Arlington High School Graduation outside of Memphis, Tennessee, a savage brawl among parents erupted — and it was caught on camera. There are multiple videos of the violence, from different angles. Although the video that best shows the absurdity of it all is shown below, you can view a closer angle at USA Today. Please be aware — due to a high level of profanity on that recording, viewer discretion is advised. The video below starts out looking like a perfectly normal graduation ceremony —...

Try clearing your browser cache (or try another browser all together). If that doesn’t do it, try rebooting the device. There may be an available software update that may resolve your issue.

    AUSTIN, TX ( — The man who claimed he was going to sue a woman for texting during their first date has opted to call it off. Brandon Vezmar met Crystal Cruz on the online dating app Bumble. On Saturday, he took her to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at a movie theater in Austin, Texas. He claimed she was texting through the movie and got fed up. “Maybe you can take it outside,” he said he told her. “She was behaving as if it was normal,” he told Inside Edition. “So much so, that I thought to...
  • 3 best TV episodes of all time?

    05/19/2017 6:42:04 PM PDT · by MNDude · 237 replies
    There are probably tens of thousands of TV episodes from the different decades. Most of them are probably pretty lousy looking back, but of course a few were rather stellar. The episode on Little House on the Prairie where Mary goes blind, nightmare at 20000 feet on the Twilight Zone, the episode with a huge battle on Game of Thrones, or the Pilot of The Wonder Years are examples of some great episodes. In your opinion, what are the three greatest TV episodes of all time?
  • Fox News Fires ‘The Five’ Co-Host Bob Beckel Over Racist Comment

    Variety ^ | 05/19/2017 | Brian Steinberg
    Fox News Channel is parting ways – again – with Bob Beckel, the co-host of its primetime program, “The Five.” “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement. The dismissal opens — or perhaps closes 0- another chapter in an off-and-on relationship Beckel has had with the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet over the years. Beckel, a longtime political consultant as well as a former campaign manager for Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale, joined Fox News in 2000, and had a years-long tenure on “The Five” when it...

    It’s easy to get depressed that we’ve all but lost the battle for fiscal conservatism, but look on the bright side. The battle for social conservatism is … no, looks like that one’s pretty much a rout too.One of the Internet’s recent misfortunes is the explosion of overheated liberal takes about the resemblance of modern American culture to “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the series on Hulu about a Christian theocratic takeover of the country in which women are enslaved by the patriarchy. Behold the state of the looming theocracy, via Gallup:Of the 19 issues tested, not a single one has...

    It seems the flag was flown at half staff all the time under Obama for every time some jihadist or lunatic massacred a bunch of people. You know one day the flags across the country will be ordered at half staff for John McCain or Pelosi as if there were great people. In your opinion, at what instances should the American flag be lowered?

    If there were ever a time to increase the gas tax it would be NOW! A tax bill is in the works. The Democrats want it "paid for." Oil price is way down and not likelihood of an increase soon. High tech improvements to oil discovery and production have drastically reduced oil prices. I am happy to pay more for a gas tax that would improve road and bridge infrastructure. PA increased the gas tax and nobody fussed much. A federal gas tax hike is long overdue and Democrats would vote for it!

    The minefields laid in the Falkland Islands were intended to kill or maim British soldiers, but over the last 35 years they have become de facto nature reserves for penguins. For better or worse, however, the time has now come for their home to be demined, reports Matthew Teller.{snip}Fortunately, the landmines aren't a problem for the penguins - at least, not the little Magellanics and Gentoos of Yorke Bay. "They don't seem to be heavy enough to set them off," says Esther Bertram, chief executive officer of Falklands Conservation.
