    As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter. I begin this with the disclaimer that my Aunt has Stage 4 Cancer, and her daughter informed me she is looney as a nut job after treatments, in she doesn't know jack or shit. Rush Limbaugh after one treatment came up with this most bazaar reality check in the Coronavirus is maybe a Peking biological weapon, but it is just the common cold. Yes common if one is a bat, unknown in the human race until China made it into a bioweapon. There are a few facts that apparently Rush Limbaugh...
  • Want multi-cultural freedom? Read Walt Whitman!

    02/20/2020 3:58:05 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 7 replies
    Late last century, when the internet was much younger, some very talented people helped me with a profoundly cross cultural album that could only ever work if it was done in a spirit of freedom. I tried to write the words to express that myself but in the end I couldn’t. I had to borrow words and revise them for the context from Walt Whitman. Where else could I look when I needed to talk about new frontiers of freedom. God Bless America.

  • Sen. Rand Paul Thinks Trump Needs Permission From Congress In Iran, Says 'Killing Country's General Is An Act Of War'

    Newsweek ^ | 1/7/20 | BY JEFFERY MARTIN
    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Monday that he believes Congress must have a chance to vote on President Donald Trump's moves toward a war with Iran and has discussed a War Powers Resolution with co-sponsor, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine. "I think killing a country's major general is an act of war," Paul said. "I don't think you can get away with saying it's 'imminent.' They've been complaining for years about Soleimani. I mean, most of the killings that are attributed to him are, I think, are from the Iraq War. You know, ten years ago or...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/3/2020 | Spencer Neale
    Former Rep. Ron Paul said he wished President Trump would "flip-flop" his policy on Iran and criticized Trump's loyalty to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia. "I think our country is not doing so well. Our foreign policy is in shambles," the Texas Republican said. "Unfortunately, the one place where I wish he would flip-flop every once in a while or change his policy completely is dealing with Iran. He is steady on it, he said it on the campaign. He's very loyal to Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia." Trump authorized airstrikes that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and...

  • What's Really in the USMCA? (UPDATED)

    The New American ^ | 07 October, 2019 | Christian Gomez
    On December 19, 2019, by a vote of 385 Yeas to 41 Nays, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the United-States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act (H.R. 5430). If passed by the U.S. Senate and signed into law, this 239-page bill would both approve and implement the now 2,410-page United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which is intended to replace the original 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). As The New American has previously covered (here, here, and here), there are many problems with the USMCA that outweigh any potential economic benefits — mainly how it would erode America’s national sovereignty in...

    Spectator ^ | December 23, 2019 | Rod Dreher
    Even though American culture warriors of the right are fighting what Tolkien called ‘the long defeat’, surrender in the Battle of Chick-fil-A was a monumental symbolic loss. That’s because the fast-food chain had become what psychology calls a ‘condensation symbol’: a phrase or entity that powerfully evokes a worldview, and usually calls forth strong emotions around it. Chick-fil-A sells fried chicken. When are chicken nuggets not mere morsels of battered and fried chicken? When LGBT activists transform them into sacraments of Bible-thumping wickedness, as they have done with enormous effectiveness since 2012. That was the year that Dan Cathy, CEO...

    I know what I am about to say will cause irate comments, but here it is – my 2-cents: I spent my young adult days at HK and 47 years in USA since then. I have seen a lot and I have my views of the current situation at Hong Kong, which is rather different from those held by the congress critters and many of my fellow US citizens. To my dismay, many US folks fall into the trap of the lame-stream media, despite the fact that they have been complaining about the disinformation and misinformation constantly spewed on the...

    A Chinese condom manufacturer says it is considering making its products in different sizes after Zimbabwe’s health minister complained that contraceptives made in China and exported to the African nation were too small for its men. Health Minister David Parirenyatwa made the comments at an event in the capital Harare last week to promote HIV/Aids prevention, according to the website New Zimbabwe.com. “The southern African region has the highest incidence of HIV and we are promoting the use of condoms,” Parirenyatwa was quoted as saying. “Youths now have a particular condom that they like, but we don’t manufacture them. We...
  • Smugglers in Mexico are SAWING through sections of Trump's 'virtually impenetrable' border wall (tr)

    Smuggling gangs in Mexico have continuously sawed through President Trump’s controversial border wall using every day power tools, according the U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the incidents. The security breaches, made with a popular cordless reciprocating saw that can sell for less than $100, has been used to open gaps large enough for people and drug loads to filter through. When fitted with 'specialized' blades, the tool can break through one of the wall's steel and concrete bollards in just minutes. The Washington Post reports that after slicing through a bollard, smugglers will push the steel out of...

    Washington Post ^ | By Jennifer Rubin
    t was a sad spectacle, a confirmation that not a single House Republican (even those who are retiring) appreciates his/her oath of office, that not a single Republican can step away from partisanship and look to the greater good, and not a single Republican who is concerned enough about the extortion of a foreign government to influence our elections to do anything about it. For whatever they do in politics and in life, the vote on Thursday setting forth the procedures for public hearings on impeachment and the inevitable vote on articles of impeachment will define their public life. Unless...

    I am leaving FR after the owner instructed me to not post on a Trump thread. I posted a list of the people Trump and his AG have failed to indict and imprison even for sedition. Some of you have seen me post this before. I never was warned or suspended. Every word I posted was true. I even post options Trump had, when he entered office, but he chose to give the criminals a pass by appointing a weak AG. I came to FR at a time I was leaving the Libertarian Party for its unacceptable Abortion, Immigration, and...
  • BIDEN: “IT’S SO IMPORTANT” WE REMOVE TRUMP “ON THE 17TH,” PELOSI SHOWS ORANGE BULLET BRACELET

    Infowars ^ | 10/17/19
    Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden made some unusually strange remarks in the days before President Trump attends a rally in Dallas, Texas. For starters, during the recent Democratic debate, Biden strangely said “what I think is important is we focus on why it’s so important we remove this man [Trump] from office on the 17th…” before stopping himself mid-sentence. Trump’s rally in Dallas, Texas is scheduled for the 17th. Furthermore, Pelosi, who was acting strange during a Thursday morning press conference, showed off her orange ammunition bracelet during a press conference. It’s worth pointing out that ammunition is generally not...

    WALES will soon get an independence vote, claims a Plaid Cymru MP, who argues Brexit is pushing the nation to break away from the UK. Welsh MP Jonathan Edwards will try to rally support for a Welsh referendum today, as he speaks to delegates at the second day of Plaid Cymru's autumn conference. He is expected to say the Brexit referendum “drove a sledgehammer through the post-devolution period” and has caused a shift towards Welsh independence. The comments come after Plaid Cymru’s party leader, Adam Price, said he believed a referendum on Welsh independence would be held by 2030. ...The...

Here, in this article, we look at the United States involvement with HK. We [1] study how the United States uses Hong Kong to exert pressure on China for trade and geopolitical advantage. We also [2] take a look at the various people “behind the scenes” that are pushing for American involvement, for their own personal gain. Finally, [3] we study...
