    I know how bad the platform is and I feel like it was only made to sew discord and cause problems, just like the rest of social media... The thing is, either we give up that ground or we fight them where they are... I just put this post out there and I would encourage people to copy and paste it all over any social media you are a part of, Twitter wont work, its too long, but rewrite your own that works there. I don't want any credit make this your own conversation, just start it. We are continually...
  • Kids: Then and Now

    02/25/2018 3:49:38 PM PST · by Altura Ct. · 1 replies
    OK, so why is the country falling apart? Specifically, why are kids blowing each other away? America has become a source of wonder the world over with its Colulmbines and hundreds and hundreds of dead in Chicago and Baltimore and its burning cities and riots. Other advanced countries don’t do these things. America didn’t either until recently. Why now? Something has changed, or some things. What? People under under forty have never seen the country when it was sane. Let me point out things that have changed, at risk of sounding like a boilerplate cadger: “By cracky, wen I was...

    I hope Adam Rippon is taking notes.Lauren Gibbs, a brakeman for the U.S. women's bobsled team at this month's Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games, proved Sunday that not everything has to be consumed by political ideologies. She, along with several other athletes, were greeted by First Daughter Ivanka Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ahead of the Games' closing ceremony. There were no protests or chants, just goodwill and a fun selfie session. While she may differ politically from her new friends, their meeting was all smiles. It’s important to remember that we don’t have to agree on everything...

    An American man suspected in the murder of a Japanese woman is currently in custody in Japan.

The New York man and Sanda woman, 27, were last spotted together on security footage at the JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka around midnight on February 16, just hours before she went missing, according to Asahi. Police say only her head was found in a suitcase. Bayraktar was seen entering and leaving...

    Ohio teachers are flocking to a gun training class being offered by an Ohio Sheriff’s department. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told Fox & Friends that when they decided to offer the firearm training class to teachers they expected maybe 20 educators to sign up — instead there were hundreds. “We put it online, we thought we’d get 20 school teachers maybe. Within 20 minutes we had 40. Within an hour we had 100. Within four hours we had 200. By the next morning, at 300, we cut it off,” Jones said. The class was open to teachers as well...

    A top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday that the memo his party released this weekend regarding alleged abuses in the federal government’s Russia investigation proves the so-called Steele dossier was only part of the evidence used to get a critical, court-approved surveillance warrant, disputing Republicans’ argument about the importance of the document. The memo released Saturday is essentially a rebuttal to the one by Republicans on the GOP-controlled committee that argues the FBI and Justice Department relied on the loosely-vetted dossier to get the warrant on onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance...

    This is news that will not enchant the liberal news media, which will start to wonder why their abusive treatment of the President is not working On Friday, President Trump addressed the largest crowd of conservative activists in the history of CPAC. It was another memorable Trump speech, listing his many accomplishments and encouraging the crowd to support Republican candidates in the mid-term elections. For 80 minutes, the President discussed an array of issues such as tax cuts, judicial appointments, immigration and the strong economy.

    A runaway cow that avoided captivity for weeks died Thursday after it was caught and put on a truck to be taken to a farm, a local official said. The red Limousin beef cow fled Jan. 23 as it was to be transported to a slaughterhouse. It gained celebrity status as it defended its life and freedom, tricking searchers, swimming from island to island and roaming a lake-filled region near Nysa, in southwestern Poland.

    It’s only a matter of time, it seems, before it happens again. Only this time, it may be the spark that sets the nation on fire It becomes more and more obvious by the day that we are rapidly heading towards a second American civil war. As the leftists become a smaller and smaller minority, their frustration and desperation are driving them to more and more extreme positions, and more and more frequently, to violence of word and deed. The middle ground has disappeared under this rising tide of angry, threatening rhetoric. Debate is no longer an option. The left...

    Commissioned by the Propaganda Ministry to film the 1936 Berlin games, Leni Riefenstahl was set to showcase the triumph of German athletes as proof of Aryan physical and intellectual superiority over the rest of the world. But Jesse Owens, who earned gold in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the long jump and the 4-by-100-meter relay, became the true star of Riefenstahl’s film. The close-up on Owens’s face, the white flare of the starting gun, Owens’s lurch, and then his upright run past his competitors in 10.3 seconds, and the ever-so-close tight shot of a perturbed Hitler. Owens had become...

    One of the Parkland school shooting survivors is calling on tourists to boycott the State of Florida for spring break as a way to get legislators’ attention focused on gun control. “Let's make a deal DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed,” David Hogg, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who is a leader in the #neveragain movement, posted on Twitter on Saturday. Hogg said he hoped his tweet would make state politicians listen if the “billion-dollar tourism industry in Florida” makes gun control measures a priority. “If the legislators aren’t going to...

    THE author of the explosive new Donald Trump biography Fire And Fury has taken his cue from the title and stormed out of an Australian breakfast TV interview. Appearing in an interview with Ben Fordham on Today, Michael Wolff - crossing from London - was grilled on a range of topics relating to the US President, from gun control to North Korea. But it was when talk turned to Trump’s alleged infidelities that it all went south. “You said during a TV interview last month that you are absolutely sure that Donald Trump is currently having an affair, while President,...

    – Authorities say a man accused of riding a horse on a freeway in Southern California was arrested for driving under the influence. The California Highway Patrol says Luis Perez of Placentia had a blood-alcohol level of more than double the legal limit when they allege he took his horse on the 91 Freeway. “We get a chuckle out of the interesting situations we encounter from time to time, but one thing the CHP does not do is ‘horse’ around with DUI,” the CHP said on its Twitter account.

    This 3:42 minute video, posted by Dustin Nemos on Dtube, describes the swift retaliation by Google to silence EFFECTIVE conservative voices on Youtube. Especially, young, hip voices that are capable of reaching the young, digital native population that is currently being exploited by the MSM and Co. In response, two savvy hipsters, Dustin and Isaac Green, are re-directing to DTube in order to carry on with their mission. This may spell trouble for Youtube, as these guys are leading the way for a paradigm shift toward open sourced, de-centralized platforms. Is Youtube on a suicide mission?Censoring/banning is very difficult on...
