    “Gross domestic product,” popularly known as GDP, measures spending on finished goods and services. GDP grew 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017 and is expected to grow far more in the first quarter of this year. But is GDP the best measure of economic activity?

    So Sessions recuses himself for having an innocuous and indirect contact with a Russian. But Rosenstein is hired to be his number two and oversee Mueller based on a FISA application that he signed knowing it was BS and was the basis for Trump-Russia collusion nonsense Mueller was investigating. Rosenstein should be sent to jail for a long, long, time.
  • This Noted Statistics Expert Says Inflation In 2018 Is Way Higher Than They're Telling Us

    Free Market Central ^ | 1/23/2018 | Free Market Central
    How much inflation are we really seeing today, and is it likely to rise further as the Fed “unwinds” its Quantitative Easing securities purchases, and a more active economy pushes up wages and prices? Free Market Central put these questions to economist John Williams, whose ShadowStats alternative economic indicators are featured on our home page. Williams has long insisted that federal economic statistics do not tell the whole story. For years, he explains, the government has been gaming the numbers. Not only is inflation understated; given current trends, it’s only going to get worse.

    I have a question to FReepers out there,and also the Moderators. I was recently suspended from posting for several days, TWICE for the reason that I was posting the article of authors who are banned from this site. Being suspended means you cannot even send a message to the moderator, so I was unable to ask for clarification. Had I been allowed to send a message, I would at least know the name of the author whose article was not welcome. I learned that the article of one such writer -- C. Edmund Wright ( who used to be a...

    END THOSE DISGRACEFUL LIES ABOUT ROY MOORE Never Trumpers, drive by media, as well as TV and radio talk hosts were having a field day ignoring the fact that all of the Roy Moore accusers at the time (40 years ago) were of the age of legal consent. Including the one claiming when she was 14* years old. For her accusations are the juiciest. All of which Moore denied. Because they suggested and Moore was actually accused by a group with a very serious charge of being a "pedafile" and much later that included Illinois GOP governor Bruce Rauner who...
  • How do I find out why a post was pulled? Who do I contact?

    10/19/2017 6:14:12 PM PDT · by naturalman1975 · 81 replies
    I have just had a thread pulled and I am rather baffled as to why. And I'm not sure how to even contact somebody to ask why which is why I am posting here. The reason the thread was pulled according to the post is: "Why is this in the news forum?" The answer to that question is because it was a post taken directly from an online newspaper - the Daily Mail I've been posting here for fourteen years and this is the first time I've ever seen this happen. If the rules have changed, I'm happy to follow...

    The numbers are hard to ignore. According to the 2016 report from the Boards of Trustees, Medicare Part A will run out of money in less than 11 years. As a country, the United States is experiencing “deer caught in the headlights syndrome”; We’ve been alerted to a grave impending danger, but we’re frozen into inaction. Whether we choose to accept it or not, something has to give. The truck is barreling down the road, and if we don’t do something soon, we’ll all be roadkill. Why don’t our leaders act? Because they can’t come up with a solution that...

    The gender diversity flier obtained by Campus Reform, a website funded by the conservative nonprofit the Leadership Institute, was apparently handed out around Harvard's campus. The flier from the office of BGLTQ student life said for some 'gender is fluid and changing' and that 'can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways'.

    My apologies if this topic has been covered, I did a search and couldn't find it. Using Chrome, when I click on the "Donate Now" link, I get a message from Chrome: "Your connection is not private. Attackers might be trying to steal your information from secure.freerepublic.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Net::ERR_CERT_WEAK_SIGNATURE_ALGORITHM" I assume this message is nonsense, but just wondering what the deal is.

    Ok so I dont own freerepublic only Jim does. But we support it. Can there be an official report why on one of the most important days of crossing the finish line FR was down? Can that be explained please? Maybe we need to hold a special fundraiser to have a alternative data site and professional server managers that can handle contingency issues? This is by no means a criticism of Jim. But it was like being locked out of our own celebration at the club we belong.
