    06/22/2017 3:36:23 PM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 45 replies ^ | 6/22/17 | mark murray
    Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of the House plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. This new poll comes as Senate Republicans unveil their own health care legislation on Thursday. While the Senate bill shares some similarities to the House version, it also contains differences. ....Just 16 percent of adults believe that House health care bill is a good idea, versus 48 percent who say it's a bad idea.
  • 'Petro Pete' fights warmist wackos in gov't schools

    06/20/2017 6:06:57 AM PDT · by rktman · 14 replies ^ | 6/19/2017 | Brent Smith
    Leftist global-warming nuts are angry that someone else is daring to compete with them at their own propaganda game. It’s just not fair, say the warmist wackos. We all know man-caused global warming is a reality. For the good of the planet, no one is allowed to dispute it, nor promote a differing opinion. But according to the Fiscal Times, who sympathize with the lefty warming crazies, another group is not only challenging the set-in-stone fact, but is having success in convincing American children that man-caused warming is a myth. And worse – they are advancing the notion that the...
  • Is there a pontifical commission to reinterpret Humanae vitae? [Catholic Caucus]

    Vatican City, Jun 16, 2017 / 05:19 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- As rumors abound concerning a Vatican commission to reinterpret Humanae vitae in light of Amoris laetitia, the controversial president of the Pontifical Academy for Life has rejected these rumors. “I can confirm that there is no pontifical commission called to re-read or to re-interpret Humanae vitae. However, we should look positively on all those initiatives, such as that of professor Marengo of the John Paul II Institute, which aim at studying and deepening this document in view of the 50th anniversary of its publication,” Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia told CNA.Vatican reporter...

    A husband and wife live a 'food-free' diet and claim they survive by only eating vegetable broth or fruit a handful of times a week. Akahi Ricardo, 36, and Camila Castello, 34, who live between California and Ecuador, said they have forgotten what hunger feels like and believe humans can be sustained solely by the 'energy that exists in the universe and in themselves'. Mother-of-two Camila even practised a 'breatharian' pregnancy, only eating solids five times during the nine months she was carrying her first child. 'Humans can easily be without food, as long as they are the connected to the...
  • It’s Said That ‘97% of Climate Scientists Agree’ About Global Warming – But Do They?

    06/10/2017 8:44:26 AM PDT · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 6/9/2017 | neil frank
    A variety of studies have purported to find an overwhelming consensus among climate scientists on global warming. However, the studies rarely specify what it is to which the scientists agree. Usually it is nothing more than that the earth has warmed since 1800 and that human activity has contributed significantly to the warming—something almost no skeptics would deny. No study—whether a survey of published articles or a survey directly of scientists—has found anything remotely near a 97 percent consensus not only that the earth has warmed and that human activity has contributed significantly but also that human activity has been...
  • OPINION: The damaging case against James Comey

    06/09/2017 1:19:04 PM PDT · by ColdOne · 49 replies ^ | 6/9/17 | Jonathan Turley
    The testimony of James Comey proved long on atmospherics and sort on ethics. While many were riveted by Comey’s discussion of his discomfort in meetings with President Trump, most seemed to miss the fact that Comey was describing his own conduct in strikingly unethical terms. The greatest irony is that Trump succeeded in baiting Comey to a degree that even Trump could not have imagined. After calling Comey a “showboat” and poor director, Comey proceeded to commit an unethical and unprofessional act in leaking damaging memos against Trump. Comey described a series of ethical challenges during his term as FBI...
  • CNN Denies 'Staging' London Anti-ISIS Protest, But Orchestration Is Obvious (DOH!)

    On Sunday in London, CNN's Becky Anderson and an accompanying camera crew were captured by another videographer appearing to stage an anti-ISIS protest by a small group equipped with printed signs. CNN has denied staging the event, claiming that it "simply filmed" those involved, but it's clear that the affair was at the very least quite orchestrated and agenda-driven.
  • ‘Climate Action Is Unstoppable’: UN Chief Warns Trump Against Withdrawing From The Paris Accord

    U.N. Secretary General António Guterres issued a veiled warning to President Donald Trump during his first major speech on global warming should the U.S. withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate change. Guterres said countries can either “get on board or get left behind” when it comes to taking action on global warming because they will miss out on new economic opportunities from greener industries. “Climate change is undeniable,” Guterres said in his speech at New York University Tuesday. “Climate action is unstoppable. And climate solutions provide opportunities that are unmatchable.”

    Country music superstar Charlie Daniels, whose criticism of politicians is legend – just last month he blasted them for being willing to “kiss a flatulent skunk’s posterior” before allowing the “other party” to look good – has issued a warning to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Those Democratic Party scandals still could make a few waves. Such as the the cash that flowed to the Clinton Foundation amid the State Department’s approval of a deal to give Russia control of 20 percent of America’s uranium reserves. Or the time four American citizens died in a planned terror attack in Benghazi,...

    I am not trying to debate Joe McCarthy's place in history. Thanks to Ann Coulter's book "Treason", I know he did a lot of good work. Nevertheless, his name has become associated with fearmongering. I think in that respect, the time might be right to start speaking to the #fakenews and #fakejournalists those words "Have you no decency?" Rachel MadMcCarthy, Scott PelMcCarthey, Andrea MitchMcCarthey, etc. Are we at that point, fellow FREEPers?

    Among the benefits of Donald Trump's proposed immigration moratorium is that we won't have to keep importing hordes of Third World "refugees," such as the ones currently swarming across Europe. For decades, the United States has taken in far more refugees than the entire rest of the world combined. Nearly half of the refugees we take in are Muslim. And it's worked out great! Fazliddin Kurbanov, or "Idaho man," as he is dutifully described in the American media, was brought to the U.S. as a refugee in 2009, joining hundreds of other Uzbeks in Boise, Idaho. He came with his...
  • Iran continues to develop missile technology despite UN prohibitions

    The Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, informed Congress this week that Iran has continued to develop it's long range missile technology despite UN resolutions prohibiting the work. The Iranians are using the cover of their space program to perfect ICBM's that could be capable of hitting the US mainland. Washington Free Beacon: Iran's ballistic missile work, particularly its focus on ICBMs, runs counter to United Nations resolutions barring such activity, though it remains unclear if the Trump administration plans to pursue new sanctions on Iran. Iran continues to perform key research and development on nuclear missile capabilities despite the...
  • Bob Schieffer Sees ‘Parallels’ to Kennedy Assassination in Comey Firing

    05/12/2017 9:58:15 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 67 replies ^ | May 12, 2017
    Schieffer bewildered his audience by suggesting, “There are many parallels to Watergate. But I have to tell you, I think all the way back to the Kennedy assassination, to draw parallels.” The veteran journalist stretched, “I was there, as you know. I have always felt that if Lee Harvey Oswald had been put on trial, a lot of these conspiracy theories that are still circulating today would have been put at rest then.” One can sort of see what Schieffer was aiming for, in relation to dispelling conspiracies about the Russian investigation, but it’s still a bizarre comparison to make.

    What has been and is still being said on the secrets of Fatima are "useless speculation," because "what Fatima wanted to tell us was said publicly and openly" and Her message is "the core message of Christianity" that is "The announcement that Jesus has risen, that Jesus is alive, that Jesus is the Lord of history" Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of the Vatican State, said in an interview with the Vatican media on the eve of Pope Francis' 2-day journey in the Portuguese Marian sanctuary when, on the occasion of the centenary of the first apparitions of May 13 1917,...

    The theory of human-caused global warming is straightforward. The level of the so-called “pollutant” carbon dioxide, or CO2, is rising in the atmosphere, causing a worldwide increase in temperatures that ultimately will have a catastrophic effect on the planet. To prevent this catastrophe, a vast regulatory infrastructure needs to be created, even if it means sacrificing jobs, economic efficiency, personal freedoms or national sovereignty itself. But what if CO2 isn’t a pollutant? That’s precisely the shocking finding of a new report from statistician Jim Wallace, climatologist John Christy and meteorologist Joe D’Aleo, who contend the Environmental Protection Agency erred when...

    Prominent Washington journalists, if not Hollywood stars, celebrated the First Amendment during the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an event that lacked the glitter of past years because of the absence of the president of the United States. With President Donald Trump sending his regrets, the attention was no longer focused on an in-person roasting of the commander in chief and his humorous remarks about politics and the press. The red carpet that once featured Oscar winners, TV stars and a few major-league athletes barely turned heads. Instead, speakers at the dinner promoted press freedom and responsibility and challenged Trump’s...
