  • Once Again, President Trump Is Magnificently Right—This Time About Russia

    PJ Media ^ | 7/16/2018 | David P. Goldman
    President Trump offended the entire political spectrum with a tweet this morning blaming the U.S. for poor relations with Russia. “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity,” the president said, and he is entirely correct. By this I do not mean to say that Russia is a beneficent actor in world affairs or that President Putin is an admirable world leader. Nonetheless, the president displayed both perspicacity and political courage when he pointed the finger at the United States for mismanaging the relationship with Russia. Full disclosure: I was a...

    Well, Clinton sure did lay out todays theme for the globalists side. Today, that side is apocalyptic! Wow, I mean, they REALLY are apocalyptic! They’re about to overplay it. Shumer just stepped in it too. They protest too much. You don’t have to trust Putin at all to clearly see that YUUGE nerve sticking out. Many on ‘our side’ are hand wringing, as usual too.

    This guy is followed by Cernovich, Posobiec and James Woods. I know at least Cern and Posobiec are pretty well connected with the Trump Admin, so I think this is somewhat solid. We'll know for sure in 24h.
  • Trade Fight Threatens Farm Belt Businesses

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 2, 2018 | Jesse Newman
    The U.S. Farm Belt helped deliver Donald Trump to the White House, drawn to his promises to revive rural America and deregulate industry. Now, the president’s global trade offensive is threatening the livelihoods of many farmers. Mounting trade disputes, spurred by U.S. threats to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of goods from key trading partners, have cut U.S. agricultural exports and sent commodity prices tumbling. Many farmers, who depend on shipments overseas for one-fifth of the goods they produce, say they are anxious, especially because they are already expecting bumper...

    Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order that will keep migrant families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border. The left and the News Misleadia (one and the same, I know) have been fiercely and turbulently condemning President Trump, likening him to Hitler and Mussolini, because he inherited policy and law of previous administrations and had children separated from criminal families at the border. The uproar and furor, continuing for days on end, have triggered some people -- celebrities and common people alike -- to threaten to assassinate him or his children. Today, with the Executive Order Trump signed, the...

    LONDON: As a crucial Brexit battle comes to a head in the British parliament on Wednesday (Jun 20), MPs are weighing not just their own views but also their personal safety amid increasingly toxic public debate. Pro-EU lawmakers challenging the government's Brexit strategy have received repeated death threats, and at least one MP recently decided not to rebel on a bill for fear of reprisals. One member of Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party is under such threat that they had to be accompanied by six armed undercover police officers at a public engagement, according to colleague Anna Soubry. A...

    Simple no brainer here, any Senator that votes against the confirmation of Ms. Gina Haspel to head the CIA, belongs in GITMO for they are traitors and turncoats to the USA and the American people. I have notified both my Senators, Rubio & Nelson that they better vote for Haspel or I will do all I can to work to get them defeated. Rubio is no problem, he is a solid yes. Nelson is on the fence, but, he is frightened of losing his seat to Rick Scott (He will), so Nelson will indeed cast a yes vote to confirm...

    Any Christian with terminal illness who believes in the afterlife, would embrace a spirit of forgiveness towards others, in the hope of receiving forgiveness from God. Our ability to receive forgiveness from God depends on our ability to forgive our fellow human beings. There are many Bible verses dealing with unforgiveness: https://www.openbible.info/topics/unforgiveness

    Lebanon held on Sunday its first parliamentary elections in nine years, as citizens expressed cautious optimism that the country's rigid, oft-deadlocked sectarian political system could be swayed. Behind the scenes, however, one of the world's leading powers has quietly eyed the small state as a potential ground to project its power in the Middle East and into the Mediterranean. But it won't be easy. With Syrian rebels and jihadis at bay, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government set to further extend its comeback, Russia has pursued a cautious overture across the border into Lebanon—a $1 billion dollar arms deal, including...

    Former CIA Director Michael Hayden downplayed on Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic presentation in which he accused Iran of "brazenly lying" over its nuclear ambitions. "To the best of my knowledge -- out of government, not getting the briefings -- I think this is fundamentally old news," Hayden told CNN's "New Day." On Monday, Netanyahu gave a presentation in English in which he claimed Israel has evidence that Iranian officials were "brazenly lying" when they said Iran wasn't pursuing nuclear weapons and that the Islamic Republic is keeping an "atomic archive" at a secret compound. Hayden told "New...

    President Trump on Friday announced that he has approved military strikes in Syria against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The decision follows a suspected chemical gas attack from the Assad regime on a rebel-held town near the Syrian capital last weekend. The United States launched the response, along with assurance from France and the United Kingdom, Trump stated. French President Emmanuel Macron said the operation is currently targeting the "clandestine chemical arsenal" in Syria. "This evening I have authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter...

Here's a simple method anyone can use to measure the altitude, size, and velocity of the International Space Station by capitalizing on a lunar transit (where ISS is silhouetted against the moon within a narrow corridor - you can find opportunities on transit-finder.com). Anyone can do this with a friend using a good high magnification camera like a P900 or other long focal length telephoto lens on...

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, announced yesterday he had reached a deal with the UN to resettle thousands of African asylum seekers only to u-turn within hours after a rebellion by his own ministers. The Israeli leader said on Monday afternoon that he had struck an international agreement under which around half of the 40,000 asylum seekers in Israel would be sent to Western countries like Canada, Germany and Italy. Under the terms of the deal, the Israeli government agreed to let the other half stay in the country and to scrap controversial plans to deport them to other...

    My journey with Free Republic began in late 1998. It was near the end of the Clinton Presidency, and there seemed to be a new wave of hope and a sense of renewed patriotism as we gathered to defeat Al Gore and elect George W. Bush. But, on the whole, we lacked a platform, a vehicle, whereby we could gather together and speak with a common voice. Jim Robinson provided that platform, utterly unique at the time, a place for conservative voices to sing out, to proclaim their views, to unite, and to encourage one another that we were not...
