  • Newly released Clinton document describes Internet as ‘right wing’ tool of ‘conspiracy commerce’

    Newly released Clinton document describes Internet as ‘right wing’ tool of ‘conspiracy commerce’ Posted By Giuseppe Macri On 6:01 PM 04/18/2014 In | No Comments A previously unreleased White House document among the 7,500 published by the Clinton presidential library Friday warns that the burgeoning Internet of 1995 is being “seized” by the “right wing” and turned into a “communication stream of conspiracy commerce.” The 1995 report, titled “The Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce,” describes the Internet as a new method of communication ”employed by the right wing” and used to “convey their fringe stories into legitimate subjects of coverage...
  • Host's "Concomitant" Pronunciation Freaks Out Freepers (Rush)

    RUSH:  I understand, ladies and gentlemen, that my occasional usage of the word "concomitant" and "concomitantly" is irritating Freepers at FreeRepublic.com.  "Yes, and if I hear that word and his pronunciation one more time, I will scream!"  I guess some prefer "con-com-i-TANT-ly."  At any rate, I was watching a show, a BBC show -- a fascinating show, by the way.  I hope it's made available in America. It's from the BBC, about Kim Philby.  It's a two-parter. I think it's an hour and 45 minutes each, whatever. It's an hour, hour and a half, maybe it's two hours. So there...

    Website FreeRepublic Exposes BLM “document dump” that suggests attempted cover-up of Sen. Reid/Chinese gov’t takeover of ranch for solar farm. The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov. Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle...

I’m 90 percent sure she’s joking but there’s no way to be sure: Any conservative willing to offer three cheers for RomneyCare qualifies, indisputably, as a true blue Mitt fan. I didn’t think they existed, but they do. Even among people who knew all along that, if nominated, he would lose. Why Romney instead of someone else, though? One big reason, she says, is immigration.

The author/writer seems pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-conservative (and seemingly Conservative himself), anti-big-government & on and on, but the thread was pulled specifically citing the author's name, Warner Todd Huston. Even his Facebook page & web search didn't turn up anything I found to be anti-conservative (though I will cite a lack of religion in his publications...just an observation given the topic). I looked & looked (adminlectureseries, etc., including "How to post a thread and other...

The post was picked up by a Tea Party forum "Free Republic" and they were not happy. Apparently I'm "stupid, ignorant, dishonest and basically evil" and also have "the hair of a kewpie doll." For 70+ comments, they proved they were smarter, more honest, more Godly, and possessing of better hair by calling me gay in as many ways as they could think of. "Fudgepacker" was fun because it reminded me of second grade, "pointy headed fag in need...

    -snip- 24. Power Line From practically the day they sprang into existence, blogs have been denigrated as trivial, inaccurate, and derivative. Untrained writers could never match the accuracy and depth of newspapers and network news. Power Line, a scrappy right-wing blog, turned that perception on its ear when it took down one of old media’s most venerable figures: Dan Rather. In September 2004, Rather and CBS News aired an explosive story about George W. Bush’s service in the Texas Air National Guard. The report used military documents to show that Bush had received preferential treatment and performed poorly while failing...

I'm using Firefox Beta 23 on Win 7. Then, I happened to update my Java to Java 7 Release 25. Lo and behold, the partial display bug appeared for me when I checked back into FR. The same problem exists when I use Chrome, so I presume it's the Java update that's causing the problem. Has anyone else noticed this behavior?
