    AN OnlyFans model wearing just a thong opened fire on two armed burglars who burst through her home. Ansley Pacheco, 26, was captured on home security cameras grabbing her own pistol to defend her son in the raid of her home in Miami. The Instagram model was in the bedroom of her Hileah home on October 4 when two masked men crashed through the door brandishing Uzis and began spraying her husband and his friends with bullets. Shocking footage shows Ansley scramble to grab her firearm before she began shooting at the crooks from her doorway. "Don't shoot! My son...

    Here is Tony Bobulinski’s statement in full: My name is Tony Bobulinski. The facts set forth below are true and accurate; they are not any form of domestic or foreign disinformation. Any suggestion to the contrary is false and offensive. I am the recipient of the email published seven days ago by the New York Post which showed a copy to Hunter Biden and Rob Walker. That email is genuine. This afternoon I received a request from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance requesting all documents relating to my business affairs...

    Gov. Roy Cooper chose Wednesday to keep in place statewide Phase 3 socioeconomic restrictions through Nov. 14. However, two members of his administration sent a letter Tuesday to elected leaders in 36 counties - though not Forsyth - recommending and encouraging them to consider implementing enhanced restrictions of their own. The request from state Health Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen and state Public Safety Secretary Erik Hooks emphasizes reinforcing social-distancing request within their communities, including for officials to "consider local actions to improve compliance with executive orders." **SNIP** Suggested enforcement steps included: * Imposing fines for businesses that do not enforce...

    PRESIDENT Trump unleashed on Barack Obama during a campaign rally on Wednesday, claiming the former president couldn't help Hillary win as he repeated his middle name, Hussein. His comments to supporters in North Carolina came the same day that former president Obama slammed Trump as he hit the trails to campaign for Joe Biden. "Obama's now campaigning, even though he refused to support Biden," Trump claimed as he spoke to his supporters in Gastonia. "Even after Biden sort of semi-won. He wouldn't do it. It took forever." "But now he's campaigning for him." Trump said he questioned if Obama hitting...

Jones "would like to extend an invitation to put money towards a one-way ticket for any celebrity that would like to leave the country this time around if President Trump is re-elected.” Among the recent celebrities...

    California Republicans refuse to hand over information about who used their unofficial ballot drop boxes. Now, state Democratic leaders are taking them to court. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Tuesday filed a petition in the Sacramento Superior Court requesting the court order the CA GOP to comply with “investigative interrogatories,” or questions posed to the party about the use of unofficial ballot drop boxes. Becerra is asking the court to force Republicans to provide the name, address and birth date of all individuals that deposited a vote by mail ballot in any of Republicans’ non-official drop boxes, as well...

    The town of Fermoy in County Cork has cut ties with its Polish twin, Nowa Dęba, over a motion opposing “LGBT ideology”. All six councillors in Fermoy voted to sever the town’s 14-year relationship with the eastern Polish town, which had included exchange visits and cultural events, said Councillor Noel McCarthy who proposed the vote. “We terminated because we felt that their local authority had discriminated against the LGBT community,” Mr. McCarthy said, referring to a motion passed by Nowa Dęba in 2019. […] Nowa Dęba’s 2019 resolution pledged to “defend our tradition, culture and religion against aggressive, deceptive and...

    People who breach the Government’s COVID-19 restrictions can be issued with an on-the-spot fine of up to €500 under legislation to be passed in the coming days, the Cabinet has agreed. The legislation will pave the way for proportionate fines for those who hold house parties, travel beyond the five-kilometer limit or refuse to wear a face covering. However, this legislation will not be in place by midnight tomorrow when the new restrictions kick in. This means that the current penalty of €2,500 or up to six months in prison will apply for travel restriction breaches until the new law...

    Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco leaders unanimously approved hate crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the ability to sue the caller. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN legislation. It’s a nod to a popular meme using the name “Karen” to describe an entitled white woman whose actions stem from her privilege, such as using police to target people of color. All 11 supervisors signed on to...

    Disney has attacked California Governor Newsom for his 'arbitrary' COVID guidelines that will keep Disneyland 'shuttered for the foreseeable future', after the state announced further delays to reopening large theme parks Tuesday. Disneyland Resort's President Ken Potrock blasted state officials in a statement Tuesday saying the reopening guidelines are 'unworkable' and will force 'thousands more people out of work'. The outrage came after the state released protocols for reopening California theme parks Tuesday, revealing it will still be several weeks before Disneyland in Anaheim, California, can start welcoming guests back to the so-called 'Happiest Place on Earth'. Tensions have been...
  • PortMiami wants $285M in COVID rent breaks for cruise lines as debt pressures grow

    Faced with a crippled cruise industry as a one-time cash cow, PortMiami wants to slash required rent payments for ships and hope business picks up in time to cover debt payments for an ongoing expansion. Once federal regulators lift the existing “no sail” order on cruises, cruise lines would resume rental fees for ships, but not have to meet minimum payments. Kuryla said the agreements were tailored to keep Miami poised to remain the top cruise port once ships begin filling up again, and reduce berthing costs enough for companies to consider leaving the port with vessels at a fraction...

    There was a time when Kevin Van Ausdal had not yet been called a “loser” and “a disgrace” and hustled out of Georgia. He had not yet punched a wall, or been labeled a “communist,” or a person “who’d probably cry like a baby if you put a gun in his face.” He did not yet know who was going to be the Republican nominee for Congress in his conservative district in northwestern Georgia: the well-known local neurosurgeon, or the woman he knew vaguely as a person who had openly promoted conspiracies including something about a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.

    Hello Freepers. Mrs. R2 and I are traveling and I’m currently Freeping at you from Mena AR. I was trying to explain to my wife last night the significance of Mena in relation to the Clinton Family Crime Foundation activities from so many years ago. But I couldn’t remember all the details. I seem to remember the Mena airport was a focal point for criminal activities but I couldn’t exactly recall the details. It’s been many years since the Clintons and Mena were infamous.

    Here is more 'anecdotal evidence' of the support out there for President Trump and VP Pence. Members of the Republican Party of Iowa County gathered yesterday (Sunday, October 18, 2020) for a 'Sign Rally' on the Main Drag in little Dodgeville, WI, Population 4,727. This is the largest town near mine, Population 283. FWIW, there has been NO rally like this for Biden and there was NO rally like this for Trump/Pence last time around, or for ANY Dem candidate. I thought these pictures would cheer everyone up. :) Support is strong in Flyover Country!
