    "I would encourage my colleagues to visit, meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear," Omar said at a news conference. "We cannot let Trump and Netanyahu succeed in hiding the cruel reality of the occupation from us." "There is no way that we are ever, ever going to allow people to tear us down, to see us cry out of pain, to ever make us feel like our (citizenship) certificate is less than theirs," Omar said. "So we are going to...

    A woman's daily habit of cleaning her ears with cotton swabs led to a life-threatening infection in her skull, according to news reports. The 37-year-old woman, who is identified only as Jasmine, said she cleaned her ears every night with cotton swabs... But over time, she noticed she had trouble hearing out of her left ear, and finally went to the doctor. She was initially told she had an ear infection, and was given antibiotics. But her hearing problems remained, and she soon noticed blood appearing on the cotton swabs after she cleaned her ears. After a hearing test showed...

    Just sick. Hasn't been three hours and Kamala starts in the gun control stuff. "Simply horrific. I'm grateful to the first responders who are on the scene in Gilroy, and my thoughts are with that community tonight. Our country has a gun violence epidemic that we cannot tolerate." ***Just the right time for political opportunism.***

    CNN's Reliable Sources, hosted by left-wing "media correspondent" Brian Stelter, is not having a good year -- it's average audience has fallen 42% since January. Between Jan. 6 and Jan. 27, 2019, Reliable Sources averaged 967,000 viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily broadcast data as reported by John Nolte at Breitbart News. But for June 16 to July 7, 2017, the data show that Reliable Sources' audience had fallen to an average of 557,000 viewers, an audience about the size of Albuquerque, New Mexico. That audience size is also about half the number of prostitutes in the United States, which is estimated...

    2017 FBI report Maine: 121 incidents of violent crime per 100,000 residents. Vermont: 165.8 incidents per 100,000. New Hampshire: 198.7 incidents per 100,000 New Hampshire is once again in an enviable spot following the release of the FBI’s latest crime rate data. The Granite State had the third-lowest rate of violent crime in 2017 — 198.7 incidents per 100,000 residents — trailing only Vermont (165.8) and Maine (121). Violent crime was down slightly nationwide, and it was the second year in a row that New Hampshire’s rate decreased... That disparity has long been the case — without any clear explanation...

    President Donald Trump praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un -- a man who leads a government that outside observers say brutalizes and starves its own citizens -- as someone who "loves his people." Speaking with Voice of America's Greta Van Susteren following his historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Trump called Kim "funny" and "smart." "He's got a great personality. He's a funny guy, he's very smart, he's a great negotiator. He loves his people, not that I'm surprised by that," Trump said. "I think that we have the start of an amazing deal. We're going to denuke North...

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson had his favorite liberal Cathy Areu on his show Wednesday to discuss the argument made by one professor that white people who do yoga contribute to white supremacy. Tucker asked, “So if yoga is racist, is hot yoga more racist or less?” Areu responded, “All Western yoga is racist, according to this author, according to this professor. All Western yoga. So yoga that is practiced in India has nothing to do with the yoga that is practiced in the Western world.

    It seems Donald Trump can hardly go anywhere without creating an awkward moment, and his latest has been directed at France’s new First Lady Brigitte Macron. The US president and his wife Melania had just finished a museum tour of Les Invalides with the Macrons, and were saying their parting farewells when Donald approached Brigitte. Looking her up and down, he tells the 63-year-old former teacher that she’s “in such good shape” before turning to her husband and repeating “she’s in such good physical shape… beautiful”.

    The following is 'an' essay on Luke 21, as relating to The Rapture of Believers and Jesus's Prophecy for Jerusalem. Another thread is stuck where this would have been posted as a response. I'll ping the freepers who might have interest. The essay is long, so it will be divided into to posts, the body of the thread then the body of comments. Before setting to this post, I listened repeatedly to Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, having gone to bed listening to Matthew 24 from the Andrew Scourby reading of the King James Bible. Much diverging opinion...

    The word “SEX” appears to be visible in NASA’s latest composite image of the Earth. The Coincidence Theorist explains why this is perfectly normal… NASA released their latest image of Earth, supposedly taken from one million miles away by the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite, on 20 July 2015. The image isn’t a normal photograph as you might expect but a composite generated by combining multiple pictures. “For some reason, there aren’t any genuine pictures of the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite,” admits The Coincidence Theorist. “However I did find this cartoon on NASA’s website and tried to annotate it...
  • College Writing Center Declares American Grammar A ‘Racist,’ ‘Unjust Language Structure’

    An “antiracist” poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” promising to prioritize rhetoric over “grammatical ‘correctness.'” The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma’s Writing Center, states “racism is the normal condition of things,” declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society. “Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” proclaims the writing center’s statement. “Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, writing in Thursday's New York Times [1], says he has "a few things to say," now that he's leaving the Senate for good. Reid devoted half of his op-ed to a defense of the Senate rule change he instituted in 2013. The so-called "nuclear option" will allow confirmation of Donald Trump's nominees (except for the Supreme Court) by a simple 51-vote majority. It eliminates the filibuster. "One thing we fought for that’s worth defending is a fairer, more open and more productive Senate," Reid wrote. "We changed the Senate rules to guarantee a president’s...
