  • Fox Business Poll: 7 in 10 say 2021 was a bad year for the country

    With rising prices, escalating crime rates, and the approach of year three of a global pandemic, 7 in 10 voters think it was another bad year for the country — and over half feel it was bad for them personally. The new Fox Business survey of registered voters finds 70 percent say 2021 was a clunker for the country. While that is better than the 78 percent who felt that way about 2020, it’s still much worse than the 38 percent who called 2019 bad.

    A Connecticut judge has found Infowars owner and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones liable in a defamation case brought by families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre. The judge in the case ruled that because Jones failed to produce documents he had been ordered to hand over by the court, including his financial records, he was liable by default, The New York Times reported on Monday. The families of 10 victims in the 2012 mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school sued the far-right media personality for defamation in 2019 after he suggested on his program the assault,...

    Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who was blamed last year for giving former U.S. President Donald J. Trump COVID-19 appears to have caught a case of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) during his tenure with ABC News. Christie, since hinting he is running for President in 2024 has been fixated on his former boss since being cast off the Trump island. When asked by his ABC co-worker George George Stephanopoulos about the former President, “Is he [Trump] winning this fight?”

    Shocking, as in we're shocked a car company would release footage this bad. But UAE hypercar company Devel has a legit 5,000-horsepower, 12.8 liter V16 engine, multiple prototypes, and now a super-lame test video of this spectacularly audacious machine. Fifteen years later, the company is still trying to get the thing built. Perhaps that shouldn't be surprising; take a look at the promises here. The track-only top model promises more than 5,000 horsepower, with a street version not too far behind at around 3,000 ponies. This from a custom-built 12.3-liter V16 engine running four massive 81mm turbochargers. There's apparently a...
  • Indonesia's sunken submarine may have been hit by a powerful force known as an internal wave

    As an Indonesian navy submarine crewed by 53 men glided below the surface of the Bali Sea during a routine training exercise, it may have been hit by an invisible but powerful force that dragged them to the deep. Indonesian navy officials suspect an internal solitary wave, known to occur in the seas around Bali, may have caused the sinking of KRI Nanggala 402, and the loss of its 53 crew. The vessel sank to a depth of 838 metres, far beyond the reach of rescuers. As the personal effects of crew members floated up and the oxygen supply on...

    Complete Christianity ^ | March 30, 2021 | Shane Schaetzel
    The only good Catholic is a bad Catholic. That’s the unofficial position of the US Democratic Party (DNC). What does that mean? It means as far as the US Democratic Party (DNC) is concerned, the only good Catholic is one who doesn’t really believe or practice the Faith. In other words, Catholics like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi represent the sort of Catholics Democrats approve of — faithless, heretical and apostate. They constantly remind everyone about their supposed “Catholic” faith, but they don’t act like Catholics when it comes to their beliefs or policy positions. They’re “Paper Catholics,” as in...

    An Alexandria, Virginia, tax lobbyist was sentenced to one year in prison today for willfully filing a false tax return, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger for the Eastern District of Virginia. According to court documents, attorney James F. Miller, 67, underreported his gross income on his 2010 through 2014 tax returns by more than $2.2 million. Miller, a tax policy lobbyist and former employee of the Justice Department’s Tax Division, filed multiple false tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These returns omitted...

    So there was this female business executive who was late for a meeting. She is going 65 on a street where the speed limit is 40. A cop pulls her over and says “ma’am, can I please see your license?” She says “I’m sorry, officer, but I got it revoked two years ago for drunk driving.” His brow furrows and he straightens up. “Well, can I please see the registration of your car?” She says “I stole the car and I killed the driver; he’s in the trunk.” “Ma’am, DON’T MOVE, I’m calling for backup.” He mutters furiously into his...

    Christmas is a time of celebration, but once the party's over, plenty of garbage is hauled to the curb. Environmental group Zero Waste Canada estimates that from mid-November to mid-January, the average Canadian generates about 25 per cent more trash than during the rest of the year. The reason: people buy more stuff over the holidays, and a lot of it — from shiny wrapping paper to glittery cards — typically can't go in your recycling blue bin, so it's destined for the landfill. To help Canadians celebrate a greener Christmas this year, here are some of the season's worst...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got the full Bad Lip Reading treatment on Wednesday, and it’s just as hilariously ridiculous as you’d expect from the YouTube channel. The new video, titled "Hillary Stories," shows the 2016 presidential candidate telling bizarre stories that barely make sense, though it’s unclear why we’re just getting the cheeky dub job now. You know, considering the state of things. If you're new to the channel, the series creates absurd voiceovers based on a bad lip reading of what people in the video are saying. (snip) Clinton's stories include such classic yarns as the time...

    An Idaho police department is hailing nurse Alex Wubbels as a hero for standing up to Salt Lake City Detective Jeff Payne, who tried to take blood from a patient without a warrant or the patient’s consent. That patient, it turns out, is William Gray, a reserve officer in Rigby, a city about 15 miles north of Idaho Falls. “The Rigby Police Department would like to thank the nurse involved and hospital staff for standing firm, and protecting Officer Gray’s rights as a patient and victim,” the agency said on Facebook. “Protecting the rights of others is truly a heroic...

    H David Eubank is a former Special Forces Operative turned aid worker. The 56 year old veteran’s Free Burma Rangers aid organization has been in Mosul, Iraq fighting ISIS. He previously was in the military free fall team with the First Special Forces Group, so he is skilled in combat unlike most aid workers. So, when ISIS was firing upon civilians and he saw a little girl about 150 feet away from him, he sprang into action to rescue her. As you can see in the tweeted video below, Eubank is donning only a helmet and a bulletproof vest. He...

    He is known in China as the "godfather of real estate," helping lay the groundwork for private homeownership in China, a move that enriched millions and laid the foundations for a vibrant and thriving Chinese middle class. Now, Meng Xiaosu wants a lot of Chinese — the older ones, specifically — to cash out. Older people need to mortgage their homes to address China's looming demographic bust, Mr. Meng argues. Because of China's now-defunct one-child policy and other social trends, the country has a rapidly graying population that someday soon may become too expensive for the Chinese government to support....

    NBC is interrupting the coverage of the opening ceremonies ever few minutes for at least three minutes of really BAD advertisements. But then the opening ceremonies are pretty bad themselves. . . among the worst of the modern era. How many of our Fellow Freepers are finding this as off-putting as I am? Then the Brazilians used it for a huge propaganda push for the dire consequences of Global Warming, not even "Climate Change!" Good Grief. . . Comments?
  • Dems Are Now Offering a Reward For Trump's Tax Returns

    Trump has long insisted he can’t release his tax returns because they’re currently under review, reiterating this position on Wednesday at a news conference in Florida. But that’s not stopping Democrats (and Republicans) from wanting to know what’s in them. Some donors have even offered rewards for their release. Moishe Mana, a top fundraiser for Clinton, has offered to give $1 million to the charity of Trump's choice if he makes them public. He joins an unnamed Republican donor working with Clinton ally David Brock who has made a similar offer of $5 million. "Through his financial documents, we are...
