  • Trouble getting on TruthSocial

    12/10/2023 11:14:12 AM PST · by bluescape · 6 replies
    I've been unable to connect to Truth Social for a couple of days. I just get the grey circle of lines like it's loading forever. I use firefox mainly. I tried Chrome and got the same thing. I tried Edge and got a 'You are locked out." I barely post there. I posted something a couple of days ago but nothing serious I don't think. Anyone else having trouble? If I were locked out is there a way to appeal to get it working again?
  • Fully Vaccinated and Boosted Piers Morgan Tests Positive for COVID-19 — Blames “Anti-Vaxx” for Catching the Virus

    Far-left British television personality Piers Morgan has contracted COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and receiving a booster shot two years ago.The hypocritical host of “Uncensored” announced the news via Twitter, expressed his frustration, and blamed the ‘anti-vaccination’ community for his infection.The 58-year-old host shared a photo of his positive lateral flow test on Twitter, along with a candid description of his condition: “as rough as a badger’s a***.” response to a user questioning his disclosure of the news, Morgan implied the uniqueness of the situation, as hosting from home is a deviation from the norm. But the interaction escalated as...

    It is nothing short of amazing to see how far movies have evolved since their earliest days to today. Movies at their earliest inception were state of the art, impressive spectacles that people dressed up for and flocked to see, for a fraction of the cost of attending performance-based arts like plays, concerts, and vaudeville acts. When silent movies came on the scene, the art of storytelling entered a new age, an age that, if done right, would have an impact that would be frozen in time, and become immortalized. Very few films from the silent era have high profile...

    Comprehensive research has shown not only that Washington knew in advance of the attack on Pearl Harbor, but that it deliberately withheld its foreknowledge from our commanders in Hawaii in the hope that the "surprise" attack would catapult the U.S. into World War II.On Sunday, December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, shattering the peace of a beautiful Hawaiian morning and leaving much of the fleet broken and burning. The destruction and death that the Japanese military visited upon Pearl Harbor that day — 18 naval vessels (including eight battleships) sunk...
  • Wikipedia Co-Founder No Longer Recommends His Online Encyclopedia

    Back in 2017, the Daily Beast wrote that Operation Mockingbird “has never been officially discontinued.” Wikipedia - the internet encyclopedia constantly propped up to be the #1 source for online information and constantly shoved down our throats — provides damning evidence that the government infiltration of American news and information is alive and well. Most Google searches rank Wikipedia at the top of the search results page. And YouTube uses it whenever they put one of those annoying “context tabs” on a video. Yet Wikipedia is not considered a reliable source of information by anyone with half a brain. Most...

    Anyone know what happened to Upchuck? He hasn't posted since 8-17-2023. He does the South Carolina ping list. I'm not sure who else may have been involved in handling the ping list, but the last "SC ping" I see is on 8-16-2023. I can't believe I've been too busy to notice this before now! Gosh, time flies!Also, I see Upchuck's FR home page shows: "This account has been banned or suspended." What the heck?!?! First HumbleGunner, now Upchuck. Who's next? (And "NO," I'm not feeling depressed or suicidal, but thanks for asking.) Anyone?
  • Reliable charities for Christmas donating

    12/03/2023 6:40:27 AM PST · by bluescape · 26 replies
    Our household usually gets some toys and takes them to the local fire station during Christmas. They distribute them to needy children. Our church use to have a similar event but not this year. I'd like to see a list from the Freepers of good and bad charities that they know of. There are plenty of places to donate if one looks around, but some have high overhead and less get to those in need. I know of other organizations that have become politicized and not in a good way. Also I'm interested in seeing a sort of update on...
  • Biden’s DOJ Fines Tennessee Christian Trucking Company $700,000 for Requiring Workers to Disclose Legal Status

    Biden’s Department of Justice has slapped a whopping $700,000 fine on Covenant Transport Inc. and the affiliated Transport Management Services LLC, both stellar examples of Tennessee’s robust transportation sector.The recent decision by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to impose a $700,000 fine on Covenant Transport Inc., a Christian trucking company based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, raises significant concerns about the overreach of federal power and the disregard for the realities faced by businesses in regulating their workforce.The DOJ, under Joe Biden’s regime, claims this measure is to resolve alleged violations of the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)...
  • Vivek Ramaswamy - "The Climate Change Agenda Is A Hoax..."

    Vivek Ramaswamy via X ^ | 11/30/23 | Vivek Ramaswamy
    The climate change agenda is a hoax & it’s hurting farmers in Iowa. Here’s how: the U.S. government enacted crony subsidies to reward those who build CO₂ pipelines across the Midwest to bury CO₂ in the ground, but most farmers don’t want the pipeline on their land because there are real hazards. But the GOP Establishment in Iowa now supports eminent domain to *seize* these farmers’ land. That’s a legal farce but also dangerous: if removing CO₂ is a justification for eminent domain, the government can use the same reasoning to seize your gas stoves & combustion engines while leaving...

  • DOJ Ordered Sweep of Trump’s Twitter Data for Everyone Who ‘Liked, Followed or Retweeted’ Trump

    11/29/2023 5:32:07 AM PST · by Tench_Coxe · 45 replies
    Attorneys for the Justice Department have revealed documents connected to their search warrant for Donald Trump’s Twitter account, indicating that prosecutors collected a massive collection of data about the former President’s social media activity—including information on every account that liked, followed, or retweeted him. (snip) As reported by Politico, Twitter’s dispute with Smith’s team stemmed from prosecutors’ decision to serve the warrant alongside a “nondisclosure order” that barred Twitter from informing Trump — or anyone else — of the warrant’s existence. (snip) This is chilling: Not only did Jack Smith seek to violate Donald Trump’s reasonable expectation of privacy in...
