  • Gov. Gavin Newsom wants investigation of state's high gas prices

    California's governor has asked the attorney general to investigate why the state's gas prices are so high, pointing to a new report suggesting big oil companies are "misleading and overcharging customers" by as much as $1 per gallon. Name brand retailers - including 76, Chevron and Shell - often charge more because they say their gasoline is of higher quality. But a new analysis from the California Energy Commission could not explain the price difference, concluding "there is no apparent difference in the quality of gasoline at retail outlets in the state." The commission said California drivers paid an average...
  • Monthly Cooking Thread - October 2019

    I’ve had a request from Freeper MomwithHope to post this month on ‘Hearty Fall Fare’ - and even though it’s still hot here in DC, with Wednesday threatening record-breaking temperatures, the leaves are falling and the trees are beginning to morph into their Autumn glory. We can smell Fall. One of my first posts to FR, before I officially began this cooking thread, was about Virginia Peanut Soup. I can still remember how surprised I was on tasting it - while there was little in the soup other than peanuts, it was so rich and the flavor so unexpected. I...

    Francis: “We Must Obey The United Nations” “If we consider ourselves humanity, then our duty is to obey when international organizations make statements,” Pope Francis insisted during his September 10 press conference on board from Madagascar to Rome. He gave as examples the the United Nations (UN) and the International Crime Court (ICC) in The Hague. Francis added, that “we must obey international institutions.” And, “That is why the United Nations were created.” However, many UN policies are deeply immoral. They punish countries and institutions which do not bow to the demands of the abortion and gay tyranny. The ICC...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden told New Hampshire supporters that he was "not going nuts" after he momentarily forgot what building he was speaking at on Dartmouth College's campus last week. “I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts,” Biden said on Friday. “I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke. But it was on the campus.” The former vice president's clarification came before he mistakenly praised Vermont when asked about his impression of Keene, N.H., which is in close proximity to Vermont, on Saturday. "I love this place. Look, what’s not...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that he’s “not going nuts,” despite yet another gaffe at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. Biden, 76, was at his second campaign stop of the day, after speaking at Dartmouth College. “I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts,” Biden told the crowd after forgetting where he had just given a speech a few hours earlier. “I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke. But it was on the campus,” Biden added, according to a report from the Washington Examiner. During a previous trip to...

    Maybe it seemed like a better idea in his head. A 26-year-old man armed with “a fresh box of donuts” was arrested last week after shattering the front window of a Kings County Sheriff’s Office storefront in Fairwood, Washington, and then making himself at home, deputies wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday. The man, whose name deputies didn’t release, broke in just after midnight — shortly after he bought the baked goods at a neighborhood grocery store, according to the Sheriff’s Office. A Sheriff’s Office statement said the man tossed a 3 ½-inch knife into the glass window, but...

    SEATTLE, June 26, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A public library in Washington state was the platform for a drag show and "pride celebration designed by teens for teens" that featured a man dressed in drag who roared incoherently while on all fours. One parent called it “demonic.” “This is what demonic possession looks like. (Watch to the end.) I know a lot of y’all don’t believe in the spiritual realm, but thanks for bearing with me anyway. In my opinion, this is it. On all fours. Growling. At the teen pride event at the public library,” wrote one parent about the...

    According to statistics in the incident reports, since March of this year, 747 trains have been either delayed or cancelled as a result of service disruptions caused by the same pattern of behavior. His strategy, such as it is, seems to be to ride on the back of an uptown train, most commonly the 2 or the 5, to a major express stop. He will then pull the emergency brakes, maneuver via the track and across the platform to a train headed in the opposite direction, and do it all over again, plugging both directions of service within minutes. jumped...

    For many Americans, it's easier to believe that Russia — not American voters — installed Trump as president.On Sunday, Attorney General Barr released his summary of Mueller's report, writing that Mueller had found insufficient evidence to prove that Trump conspired with the Russians during the 2016 election. For folks who had hoped that the Mueller report would result in Trump's impeachment, it was heartbreaking.For Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, however, the Mueller report was more than that. It was a wake-up call. "Foreign influence" wasn't the only reason Trump got elected, Ocasio-Cortez claimed in response to a tweet by George Takei.Russia was...

    Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee are seeking to postpone consideration of marijuana banking legislation scheduled to be brought to vote next week by the panel’s Democratic chair, Rep. Maxine Waters of California. Ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri wrote Ms. Waters on Thursday raising concerns about Congress potentially passing the Secure And Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, a bipartisan proposal meant to protect banks that work with marijuana businesses in weed-friendly states. “The impact that many state laws, which have legalized marijuana, have on the federal laws governing the manufacturing,...

    Minnesota police know a thing or two about snow, and they’d like you to know you should clean it off your car before you hit the road or it hits another vehicle. The Minnesota State Patrol tweeted a photo of a car that got pulled over recently for being almost entirely covered in snow, save for a small square of the windshield in front of the driver and the driver’s door window. “Don’t be this person when it snows. Please. Please. Please. A trooper stopped this car Feb. 14 in Elk River. Yes, they were cited. Sure, maybe the snow...

    The Hartford Yard Goats are rewriting the lyrics to “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” after announcing earlier this month its Dunkin’ Donuts Park will be peanut-free. The Yard Goats, Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, are believed to be the first team to ban peanuts for an entire season. Peanuts are prevalent at baseball stadiums, making it difficult for children with peanut allergies to attend games. The Yard Goats held two peanut-free games last year where the park banned the item and did a deep clean of the stadium.

    The Democrats swept to power in Congress by campaigning in a way that has been successful for Democrats for generations. “Republicans will take away your health care,” they said, after having focus-grouped it. Now we are preparing for a 2020 campaign in which Donald Trump and Republicans can as easily advertise to the public: “Democrats will take away cows, and your car.” What happened to Democrats? Back in November, it looked like Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House caucus had found the perfect plan for their party in the era of Trump: Avoid talking about impeachment and stick to simple...

    There is no scientific link between vaccines and autism, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Darla Shine, wife of White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Bill Shine, is arguing that serious diseases like measles can help fight cancer. Shine’s screed against vaccines came on Wednesday after CNN reported on a measles outbreak in Clark County, Washington and Oregon. “Here we go LOL #measlesoutbreak on #CNN #Fake #Hysteria,” Shine, a former Fox News producer, tweeted, slamming CNN’s coverage of the disease. “The entire Baby Boom population alive today had the #Measles as kids,” Shine — who, along with...
