    The pundits are noting the man who never expends political capital on an issue where he might lose, has finally expended some political capital. However, what the pundits don’t realize is this has all be gamed-out, strategized and planned by the people who manage Ron DeSantis. {Direct Rumble Link}First, Mike Lindell announced he was going to challenge Ronna McDaniel for the RNC chair. This sent a shockwave through the Big Club because the potential for support from President Trump loomed over the Lindell announcement. America-First Mike Lindell is not controlled by corporate money, Wall Street, the multinationals or billionaire Big...

    I was going to post this under Catholic Caucus but I decided instead to open it up. To summarize: Pope Francis, aka Papa Pacha, gave an interview with AP on Tuesday, he said that certain bishops need to go through a process of conversion (whatever that means), that laws criminalizing homosexuality are "unjust", that it's all part of the "human condition", but nonetheless still a sin. Francis could have said all of the above about suicide, but didn't, as these traditional bishops he went after are against it as well, it is a crime to commit suicide, a sin people...

    Justin Bieber has sold all his peaches. The 28 year old pop star becomes the youngest of all music performers to sell the entire rights to his songs. The buyer is Hipgnosis, the very hot firm that has bought out catalogs of much older stars for more money and with more material. Universal Music Group will own Bieber’s master recordings. But all the songs like “Peaches” and “”Love Yourself” will be owned by Hipgnosis, including parts of songs he wrote with other people. The price is $200 million, which after taxes and paying all the lawyers involved, and maintaining Bieber’s...

    PJ Media ^ | January 24, 2023 | Matt Margolis
    In a court filing from last week, “Governor” Katie Hobbs (D-Ariz.) requested that Kari Lake’s election lawsuit be thrown out, claiming that Lake failed to prove that Arizona voters were disenfranchised in the 2022 elections. “Despite seven witnesses, hundreds of declarants, and thousands of pages of exhibits, Lake failed to demonstrate any violations of Arizona law and offered no evidence that absent alleged violations the outcome of the election would have been different,” the filing reads. But on Monday, Lake’s team indicated that more evidence is on the way, and this evidence could be game-changing. “Yesterday @katiehobbs filed to get...
  • Nolte: Brits Pay More to Charge Electric Car than to Gas Up

    Breitbart ^ | 01-24-2023 | John Nolte
    Per mile traveled, our British friends are now paying more to charge their electric cars than to gas them up. Do stories come any more feel-good than this? No, no, they do not: Rapid charge points used by motorists topping up on long drives are now nearly £10 more expensive than filling up a car with petrol, the RAC revealed last week. But research from the AA published on Monday finds that recharging an electric car even using a slow public charger at peak times can be more expensive, per mile driven afterwards, than for refuelling a comparable petrol car.

  • As more shooters wear body armor, a California bill would ban most bullet-proof vest ownership

    Most Californians would be banned from purchasing or taking possession of body armor, such as a bullet-proof vest, under a bill now being considered by state lawmakers.Assembly Bill 92, introduced by Assemblyman Damon Connolly, D-San Rafael, comes as a response to many high-profile mass shootings where the shooter wore body armor. That includes the 2015 massacre in San Bernardino, where two people wearing tactical gear killed 14 people at a holiday gathering.State and federal law already prohibit people convicted of a violent felony from possessing body armor. AB 92 would make it a misdemeanor for anyone outside of a specified...

    SGT Report ^ | 01/17/23 | The People's Voice
    Yuval Noah Harari, Klaus Schwab's lead advisor at the Word Economic Forum, has announced that human beings are no better than "viruses or bananas" and the WEF has now reached the point where they can "hack humanity."According to Harari, the idea that humans have free will is over, and for those who oppose, there will be no escaping what Harari refers to as the "Secret Police."The messaging coming out of the WEF is becoming increasingly sinister, with Klaus Schwab taking on the role of terrorist group leader, using communications channels to issue ultimatums to humanity. Do what I say, or...

    Mark Steyn, who suffered two heart attacks two months ago, posted an audio Q&A online Friday. Saying he was 'substituting for the substitutes' Steyn was in good humor, discussing his heart attacks and answering questions about current events. He quipped that he hadn't been following the news (due to stress) so this would be a view of the news from someone who hasn't been following it. He sounds in good form... audio is at the link.

Even went through Melania's underwear drawer in their efforts to find documents. Which they found all were located in a centrally controlled location. Not all over the house. Enter this Biden fiasco of classified documents found in uncontrolled locations, locations they should have never under any circumstance been, and at their time in possession of someone who was not authorized to have them beyond his official DC office. OK lots of crimes going on here the smoke signals are like the smoke from 9/11....

    It’s not every day you find a government document calling for Cato Institute employees to be charged with treason, but as a new article in The Dispatch details, here we are: "In March 2020, a maritime shipping advisory panel offered a simple suggestion to the government: Charge all past and current members of two libertarian think tanks with treason. "It is certainly not the first time a bunch of libertarians angered members of a bureaucratic panel. But this backlash stemmed from criticism of the Jones Act, a century‐​old law that imposes requirements for shipping between American ports." Haley Byrd Wilt’s...

    If you are an inflation-burned American who is already unhappy with the Washington War Machine spending over $100 billion of your hard-earned dollars funding the continuation of the Ukraine-Russia conflict, hold onto your seat. Attempting to further mock taxpayers, an “America Last” House Resolution has been introduced to display a bust of the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in our House of Representatives. Say what you want about Zelenskyy, but he should not be memorialized the same way Prime Minister Winston Churchill is. Here are five reasons that this should NOT be a thing 1. Ukraine is NOT the 51st U.S....

    According to sources, experts have been working tirelessly around the clock to try and get to the bottom of why so many seemingly perfectly healthy, athletic people are falling over suddenly. "I wish I could point to something in the past year or two that large groups of people were exposed to, or forced into, but nothing comes to mind," added Dr. Rufflinger. "If only there was one thing all these patients had in common." At publishing time, experts said they had narrowed down the list of what most likely was causing these sudden health issues down to: climate change,...

    Hi Freepers Happy New Year! I humbly request a prayer for me and many others who feel skittish about their jobs. It would be wonderful if a great opportunity comes along or I can still keep my job for years to come. Alot of times, it's self-fulfilling prophecy (you can say lack of faith). I need to have more faith in God, believing that He protects from all harm. Amen. Thank you in advance for your prayers!
