    Any Las Vegas news on the innocent life that are now with Jesus? I guess the 3 week news cycle is about the time that America forgets about innocent life and moves on to corrupt politicians and Congress women with synthetic hats. No news is good news so they say. No. Millions of us waiting for the FBI to show up, along with A poor Sheriff that is, imho, being told to stand down

    Right Wing Watch ^ | | October 23, 2017 | By Kyle Mantyla
    Pastor Jim Bakker said on his television program today that “unsaved people are going insane” because they can’t handle the fact that President Trump honors God. “Unsaved people are going insane,” he said. “They can’t take it. They can’t believe that a person was elected to the presidency that honored God, that wants to keep the cross on top of your church and Jesus in your heart.” Bakker said that while Trump “wants to stop killing the babies,” his opponents are fighting to keep abortion legal despite the fact that “this is one of the main reasons … judgment finally...

    Watch out, publishers: a nightmare scenario for Facebook may soon be a reality.    The social network last week officially launched its secondary news feed called Explore. The feed generally features posts from Facebook Pages users don't follow. News Feed, meanwhile, hosts posts from friends and Pages users do follow.But that's not true for everyone. In six markets, Facebook has removed posts from Pages in the original News Feed and relegated them to another feed, Filip Struhárik, editor and social media manager at Denník N, wrote. That means Facebook's main feed is no longer a free playing field for publishers....

    Video at link and it's 11:06 minutes long. This vlogger was pretty good in past predictions. He was generally first to discuss the last hurricane when it was still a tropical storm. In this video, he discusses wind patterns and a tropical disturbance that may become a hurricane and if so, that it will be named Phillipe. He notes that the details surrounding the formation and projected track of the disturbance are strikingly similar to the formation of hurricane Sandy. He notes that there is currently only a 40% chance that the disturbance will become a storm.

    Because people are tending to listen to the extreme left-wing liberal media instead of listening to what Trump says and does, here are his official sources where he posts his personal comments and official presidential actions. If you want to know what Trump says, then all you need to do is read his tweets. No Twitter account is needed.

It has his executive orders, memoranda, and proclamations. Presidential Actions DO NOT listen to the liberal media claiming anything....
  • Laura Ingraham Already Terrifying Fox News Staffers—and Her Show Hasn’t Even Aired Yet

    When conservative author and talk radio host Laura Ingraham sits down in the anchor chair on Oct. 30 for the first time as a host on Fox News’ evening lineup, the cable network will be making a multi-prong bet. The first is that its audience will gladly stomach another evening hour of ardent Donald Trump boosterism. Already, there are signs of trouble. A number of Fox staffers are dreading the possibility of working for Ingraham, who, even among the healthy egos that populate America’s cable newsrooms, has built a reputation as overbearing. According to numerous sources, Ingraham has been,

    One of the most devastating political earthquakes in modern American history took place between 10PM and Midnight in the inner rooms of the Clinton campaign in their VIP suite on the top floor of the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan. The day started auspiciously enough, with RealClearPolitics continuing to show Hillary Clinton in the lead, just as she had led the polling average for the past 98 days. RCP predicted that Hillary Clinton would win 297 electoral votes to Trump’s 241, comfortably surpassing the 270 needed for victory. This prediction was mirrored by polling “guru” Nate Silver’s vaunted 538 website, which...

    I am hoping that some of our techie FReepers could give me some guidance on this annoying issue. I have a Samsung "smart" TV which is a couple of years old, which I use exclusively to watch Netflix movies ( I don't watch TV and have not for at least 35 years. But I enjoy watching family fare movies). It is not the latest and greatest TV with all the cutting edge stuff. I see "1080" appear in a box when it first comes on, if that helps. I have a cable internet modem with its own wi-fi hotspot. I...
  • New TSA Screening procedures?

    10/22/2017 8:45:37 PM PDT · by Malsua · 47 replies
    I flew out out of MCO this afternoon. I was in a security screening line that was not moving. After about 10 minutes of literally not moving a foot, I heard "all the people in the left two lines are getting a preview of screening in 2018, all food, electronics, candies and anything larger than a cell phone must be removed from your carry on luggage". I snuck over to a different line and got through, but this means the TSA theatre will now require that you remove everything from your carry on. My DSLR camera, lenses and flash are...

    The day my oldest daughter was born, I held her in my arms in the hospital and made two promises: "First, I promise I will never leave your mother; and second, I'll show up. I'll do everything I can to be at your recitals and ball games and dinner around the table." My baby laid there in my arms blinking, breathing, oblivious to the magnitude of the words I was saying. My promises seemed so valiant when I made them at the hospital. But when I got home, I realized my daughter was going to need my wife and me...

    It’s getting to be that time of year again: when jack-o’-lanterns glow and mummies and witches roam the streets. But there is one Halloween tradition that really gives me the chills: Jimmy Kimmel’s annual candy prank. Every Halloween for the past six years, ABC’s late-night talk show host has encouraged viewers to tell their children, on the morning after the holiday, that they have eaten the kids’ entire candy stash. Parents record their children’s reactions and send the videos to Kimmel, who broadcasts some of the clips on his show.

    Xi Jinping is poised to become the most potent Chinese leader since Mao Zedong — and to guide his country’s continued emergence as a fascist global superpower for at least the next decade. The 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is scheduled to start on October 18, when it will appoint leaders and establish the country’s course for the next five years. Xi undoubtedly will be re-appointed head of the CCP, followed by re-selection as China’s president and head of state early next year. But he appears also to have overturned the collegial, limited term system of leadership...

    A former policeman is still claiming he was abducted by aliens while out on patrol, some 37 years later. Alan Godfrey’s ‘close encounter’ made him famous in 1980, but it also led to the demise of his career as a copper. In his tell-all book, the 70-year-old alleges his superiors tried to silence him and get him sectioned. The ‘abduction’ on November 28, 1980, attracted national headlines. He was even interviewed by Frank Bough on BBC Breakfast. Alan says his fame came at a price. He says his superiors banned him from Todmorden police station, effectively ending his nine-year career...

    To punish nine-year-old Dericka Lindsay for supposedly “being out of control,” her 325-pound cousin Veronica Green Posey sat on the child. For 10 minutes, Posey remained atop Dericka. Even after the child screamed to her nearby parents that she could not breathe, the 64-year-old woman continued to sit on the girl for another two minutes. After Posey finally relented, Dericka was unresponsive. Posey called 911 and attempted CPR. It didn’t work. Doctors at Baptist Hospital, where the Dericka was rushed, pronounced the girl dead. Police arrested Posey and charged her with homicide and cruelty to a child. Officers also arrested...

    KOKOMO, Ind.-- Howard County gun owner Billy Swaggerty said he learned a bitter lesson after his back door was kicked in last spring and more than a dozen firearms, some of them assault-style rifles, and the safes they were kept in were stolen. “Be careful who you tell, keep it to yourself, don’t be bragging about how many guns you got, be careful who you let into your house and make sure you buy a quality safe,” he said. “And that’s another thing…don’t let strippers in your house.” Swaggerty said last winter a woman he knew in passing showed up...
