    Richmond, VA _ The City of Richmond Thursday removed the Maury Statue on Monument Avenue at Belmont, along with two cannons on Monument avenue, one just west of the Arthur Ashe Monument, and the other east of the Jefferson Davis statue. Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said the statue and cannons were among eleven the city would be removing in the coming days, following Wednesday's removal of the Stonewall Jackson statue, but it would wait until after the July 4th holiday. Maury was a confederate navy officer during the Civil War and known as the "Pathfinder of the Seas", which is...

Gidley’s new role was previously held by Kayleigh McEnany, who left the campaign earlier this year to join the administration as White House press secretary.

    A former staffer for Democrats Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee and New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan was sentenced yesterday to 48 months in prison for doxing Republican members of Congress in 2018 during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings. In April, Jackson Cosko pleaded guilty to two counts of taking restricted personal information and making it public, and also one count each for computer fraud, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Cosko was upset at the Kavanaugh hearings on September 27, 2018, according to prosecutors, so he “maliciously publishing the personal home addresses and telephone numbers of Senators Lindsay Graham, Orrin...

    Joe Biden has officially formed a transition team that will be led by former Delaware Sen. Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden adviser who also led his transition as vice president in 2008, a Biden campaign aide confirmed to CNN. This team is a preliminary group that will focus on developing the infrastructure of the transition effort. The full rollout of the team is expected later this fall, the aide said, noting that the timing of today's announcement falls in line with the timeline of past non-incumbent candidates who developed a transition team.

    Teleios conducted a survey regarding the benefits of Christian society. Respondents (n=565) indicated that living in a Christian society was important and advantages to living in a Christian society are: stronger moral and ethical base, and a greater amount of love among people. While the advantages of a Christian society to government were: keeping societal order, maintaining individual rights and reducing corruption. In summary, young Christians believe the importance of living in a Christian society and that it provides multiple advantages to the country’s population and government in keeping a strong moral and ethical base and maintaining order.

    Teleios found that countries that are most free not only demonstrate better average wellbeing, but are associated with numerous economic, legal, security, health, and educational measures associated potentially with enhanced wellbeing for the entire population as well as for women and children. Further, freer countries are much more likely to be Christian. In contrast, countries which persecute Christians are associated with poorer measures of freedom and wellbeing for the entire population. In summary, freedom in Christianity is good for society in promoting a healthy population!

    America is the light of freedom to me. What is happening now breaks my heart. The thuggery of SOME of the "protesters" against what seems to be the brutal and unnecessary murder of George Floyd has now gone way beyond the damage of the original alleged crime in lives lost and all the other harm done. In response Pat Buchanan has quoted Edmund Burke: "Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of...

    ... a private autopsy conducted by two doctors found he died of asphyxia, which happens which pressure is placed on certain parts of the body, limiting the flow of oxygen to the brain and shutting down organs. Hours later, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a new report saying that he died of "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." The medical examiner's report also listed "arteriosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease," "fentanyl intoxication" and "recent methamphetamine use" as "other significant conditions."

    ...Goines is charged with witness tampering, falsifying records and violating the rights of Rhogena Nicholas and Dennis Tuttle, the couple killed in the Jan. 28 raid on their home at 7815 Harding Street, in south Houston. At Goines’ bond hearing last month just after his arrest by the FBI, prosecutors described “vast and growing” evidence that he fabricated an informant and then lied on a search warrant affidavit, an offense report and the tactical plan made in preparation for the fatal January bust. Prosecutors also accused Goines of repeatedly lying about casework, having sex with an informant and keeping loose...
  • Warning: Just because socialist governments make rules to destroy the economy, dont expect the socialists to actually obey their own rules.

    05/29/2020 3:07:31 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 2 replies
    Beware America. The nanny state is real in Victoria, Australia. They think government can replace freedom. They employ ten people to do work that didnt need ten people and then those people get in everybody's way and break their own laws. They want a utopia where there is no death, but if God sends a plague people are going to die. I am not saying that getting the balance right between "safety" and the economy is easy. But I believe in freedom. The false safeties of socialist parasites make me sick.

    Dr. Shi Zhengli, known as China’s batwoman, was worried. Her creation, a highly infectious coronavirus, had leaked from her lab in October. Early efforts to stop the widening circle of infections had failed. It had spread like wildfire through the densely populated city of Wuhan. The Communist authorities were also worried that the source of the epidemic would be traced back to the Wuhan lab. To muddy the waters, on January 3rd, China’s National Health Commission ordered all biolabs in China to destroy not only the samples of the SARS-CoV-2 that they had isolated from those infected, but also the...

In summary: 1 Premier Andrews. 2-5. Four attacks on our human social needs. 6. AOC 7. Marx 8 Chairman Mao contrasted with President Lincoln. I suppose this short list leaves plenty of room for other Freepers to entertain me by telling us all what you think about the ones I have left out. Go for it, my...
  • A Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama Ticket To Replace Joe Biden?

    Desperate times do indeed call for desperate measures. For the Democrats, a truly desperate time could come if Joe Biden is forced to withdraw from the presidential race. While the former vice president is the presumptive Democratic nominee to face off against President Trump in November, his nomination is still far from official. Some Democrats tell me they fear that Biden’s political survival is getting more problematic with each passing day. They cite three main issues. The first is their concern that an allegation of sexual assault leveled against Biden by former staffer Tara Reade won’t go away anytime soon....
