  • Why do people post demoralizing MSM content here and then put (Barf) or (Barf Alert) after the headline - like that makes it OK?

    Some folks here on Free Republic appear to be heavily into wanting to "make us barf" for some odd reason. This is evidenced by the multitude of articles posted here that have "BARF" or "BARF ALERT" in parentheses after the title. Apparently the poster is still perusing mainstream media sites - mainstream media that skews heavily to the Left and has an agenda to tag all patriotic conservatives as racists and insurrectionists who should be herded onto cattle cars and hauled off to re-education camps like they did in days of Stalin and Hitler. So typically the poster comes across...
  • Biden leaves Trump's dystopia in the dust [barf alert]

    If you were expecting President Biden to take a victory lap, to boast about his remarkable achievements in just 50 days in office, it's understandable. After four years of the former president, many of us became accustomed to self-serving rhetoric. But Biden's first prime-time address Thursday night was something altogether different from that. Biden was 20 minutes into his speech before he mentioned that he had just signed into law a $1.9 trillion Covid-19 economic relief package that is, in fact, one of the most significant pieces of legislation in modern history -- one that will change the lives of...

    Watching the first weeks of Joe Biden’s presidency unfold on TV from her Bronx apartment, Natalia Imperatori-Lee saw a bit of herself in America’s new leader.Like her, a mom of two Catholic school kids, Biden was a regular at Sunday Mass. In clips of him in the Oval Office, she glimpsed the rosary peeking out from his sleeve — reminding her of the prayer beads in the Cuban American home where she grew up. Reading reports of the president’s push to offer legal residency to millions of immigrants, she sensed the church’s teaching to “welcome the stranger among us.”“I’m just...

    The mass delusion that rampant election fraud cost Donald Trump the 2020 election isn't an overnight phenomenon. It required the steady hum of repetition for it to become ingrained in the minds of Trump supporters. Whether it was from a meme on Facebook or a conservative news network or a right-wing conspiracy blog, the deluge of lies stuck in the brains of millions. Some of those consumed by these lies stormed the Capitol; many more say they no longer believe in American democracy.

    Black Lives Matter nets Nobel Peace Prize nomination for raising 'peaceful' awareness of injusticeNorwegian politician Petter Eide has nominated Black Lives Matter for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for its ability to raise “global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.”The MP told reporters that his decision was motivated, in part, by the diversity of people around the world who latched onto its racial warnings pertaining to “conflict based on inequality.”“They have been able to mobilize people from all groups of society, not just African-Americans, not just oppressed people, it has been a broad movement, in a way which has been...
  • Chinese Communist Party Says Joe Biden is a ‘New Window of Hope’ for the Sino–U.S. relationship.

    Beijing is looking forward to a new U.S. administration after Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden represented a “new window of hope” for the Sino–U.S. relationship. Wang made the remarks last week in an interview with Chinese state-run media Xinhua and China Media Group. He also expressed hopes that the incoming U.S. administration will “return to a sensible approach,” according to a government transcript. He took a swipe at the Trump administration, saying that in recent years, the United States has tried to “suppress China and start a new cold war.” The Chinese regime has...

    Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe Individually they’re amazing, but together they’re one of the greatest couples in sports. Bird won her fourth WNBA title with the Seattle Storm last month, and while in the Wubble she led the can’t-get-rid-of-her, let’s-help-her-lose movement to boost Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is now in a runoff against Republican Senator and Atlanta Dream co-owner Kelly Loeffler. Rapinoe proposed to Bird in late October, and there may or may not have been happy squeals at this laptop when we saw that news. George Hill By all accounts, it was Hill, the Milwaukee...

    It takes two, baby! Michelle does all the hard work as she and buff-looking Barack enjoy Xmas kayak trip in Hawaii Barack and Michelle Obama are warming up for the holidays in Hawaii, where they were pictured on Tuesday soaking up the sun in some colorful swimwear as they kayaked together in the ocean. The pair were photographed in the water at Kailua Bay, a stone's throw from Plantation Estate, their 'winter White House' which they rented over the holidays when Barack was in office. Sporty Michelle appeared to be putting in most of the work while her former President...

    Viola Davis is thrilled to be playing Michelle Obama in the upcoming Showtime anthology series First Ladies, but says she had some trepidation. The How to Get Away With Murder star dropped by The Graham Norton Show for an episode that will air on Dec. 25, where she opened up about playing the former first lady. "People love Michelle Obama," Davis told Norton. "They feel like they know her, they own her — and they do not want anything that is negative to touch her." As an actress, Davis said she delights in looking for the "mess" when it comes...

And at this particular Earth that is in reality, it was very normal, very sedate. And it was welcoming news. It was good to watch. It was good to actually get content. We heard no fake news. We heard no conspiracy theories. We heard no personal grievances. We heard a President-Elect and a vice president who want to work with the other side.” “No fake news:” That’s...

  • Professor FLOTUS? How Jill Biden would redefine what it means to be first lady

    In many ways, having Jill Biden as the next first lady of the United States wouldn't be revolutionary. The 69-year-old educator would be similar to most of the presidential spouses before her: She's a straight, White woman who's been around politics for decades, and holds some influence over her partner's decisions (see: Kamala Harris). But if Joe Biden is elected, Jill Biden as FLOTUS would be different in one very simple and very fundamental way: She would keep her day job. No matter what happens in November, Biden says she plans to continue teaching at Northern Virginia Community College, just...

We always say that,” Pelosi said....

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a recent interview that players’ kneeling protests against racial injustice during the national anthem are “not about the flag," adding that he wishes the league listened to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sooner when it came to the matter. Goodell made the comments in an interview with former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho on his YouTube series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man," that went live on Sunday. In the interview, Acho pressed the commissioner about a statement he made in early June apologizing for the league’s past handling of the kneeling...

    Politico ^ | Aug 1, 2020 | Victoria Bassetti and Norman Eisen
    Of President Donald Trump’s many career skills, perhaps the least appreciated is his lifelong and uncanny ability to sniff out lawyers who will serve his will. In slightly more than 500 days in office, Barr has pivoted from establishment D.C. attorney—sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States—into Trump’s family lawyer. The office of the attorney general is one of the oldest in our constitutional system, and the department is pledged “to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.” But Barr, instead, displays a tendency to use all the department’s levers—and with a $32...

    Signed by Pope Francis June 29, the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the instruction promotes greater cooperation among different parish communities, emphasizing the need for the parish to be inclusive, evangelizing, and attentive to the poor. The Vatican’s Congregation for Clergy published instructions Monday on reforming parishes and restructuring dioceses to better serve their “singular mission of evangelization.” The 24-page document is called “The pastoral conversion of the parish community in the service of the evangelizing mission of the Church” and seeks to “foster a greater co-responsibility and collaboration among all the baptised,” according to Mgr. Andrea Ripa, the...

    President Trump has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone. The timing, late on Friday, suggests internal embarrassment over the move, and we wish there were more. The commutation is a move fully within the president’s powers and in keeping with the long-established pattern of presidents’ pardoning or commuting the sentences of associates caught up in special-counsel probes, although usually the associates aren’t as sleazy as Stone. We’re a long way from George H. W. Bush’s pardoning Cap Weinberger, the great Reagan-era defense official, who had been indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice in the Lawrence Walsh investigation. [cut] It...

    CVS, the country’s largest drugstore chain, is making the biggest bet on the category in the U.S. yet, by adding a cosmetics line from Stryx, a brand launched last year, to 2,000 stores (about a quarter of its total). The retailer is giving more legitimacy to a small, but growing, group of products that had mainly been sold through high-end stores. With this move, CVS likely has potential customers such as Max Belovol in mind. The 23-year-old grew up wearing dazzling eyeshadows and foundation for figure-skating competitions, but didn’t become truly comfortable with wearing makeup during work until the coronavirus...
