    Helena Duke says she publicly identified her mother, aunt and uncle from a crowd of Trump supporters in Washington, D.C., because it was "the right thing to do." Duke, an 18-year-old Massachusetts high school student, spotted her relatives in a viral video of an altercation between Trump supporters and a Black woman in D.C. one day before the deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol building. On Twitter, she posted: "hi mom remember the time you told me I shouldn't go to BLM protests bc they could get violent...this you?" In a followup tweet, she identified her mom, aunt and uncle...

    2020 has been a great year for the nanny state. Will history see this as the year when disease-fuelled fear when made its greatest advances against the family as social foundation and against personal freedom?

    The modern abortion culture of The West looks like social suicide to me. The rest of the world knows that caring for children in families and beyond is essential for social survival. In The West men are demonised and female victimhood politics ignore the glories of motherhood. In The Age of Feminism too many western women stop being the women their grandmothers were. In healthy life children get real space in our lives and we are richer for it.

    Maybe some of my Freeper acquaintances have noticed I have decided to just post items regarding period dramas from the Regency to Edwardian periods. To be totally honest, my psychological back broke weeks ago as I just have enough with the world we live in. My attitude is Let it Burn. So instead of joining a monastery, I decided to just focus on things that bring me joy. One aspect of that is I finally am taking advantage of my Amazon Prime status and am catching up on all the wonderful content available. Being interested in period dramas I have...

    Merry Christmas and God Bless JimRob and all my fellow Freepers here. 2020 has been an existential Hell. It's now midnight here on the East Coast - Christmas Eve. I would ask of you one thing, and I know it's a tough one: plase, let's enjoy the spirit of the holiday. The lights, the gifts, the carols, the blessings you have received (and yes, they're around you if you look - start with the family under your roof), but most importantly, the respect and love in your heart for the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To that...

    Secretary General. Joined by 34 other countries, the document enshrines the Trump administration’s pro-life diplomacy on the official record of the General Assembly. “The United States strongly supports the dignity of all human beings and protecting life from the moment of conception throughout the lifespan,” Ambassador Kelly Craft wrote to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres transmitting the Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family. Following the letter, the declaration was issued as an official document of the United Nations last week and circulated on December 11, after having been translated into all six official UN languages....

    The routine demonisation of men is a disease that has spread across The West. The enormous commitment to good of fatherhood is now belittled as evil patriarchy. This is not so in The East. Pat Buchanan described this self-destruction as suicide of a super power. What went so insanely wrong?

    BUDAPEST - Hungary amended the definition of family in its constitution Tuesday to allow an effective ban on adoption by same-sex couples, another win for the ruling conservatives but decried by one pro-LGBTQ group as "a dark day for human rights." The nationalist Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban has worked to recast Hungary in a more conservative mold since winning a third successive landslide in 2018,and anti-gay verbal attacks and legislation have become common. In recent years Orban, facing a unified opposition for the first time, has doubled down on propagating his increasingly conservative ideology, deploying strong language...

    This will be the same fate of any Investigation of the Biden family corruption, once he occupies the White House. Editorial | Sudden death for Madigan probe The Editorial Board 12/18/2020 The curtain has come down on an ill-fated special investigating committee in the Illinois House. Democratic Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan needs all the good publicity — in this case, that’s defined as the absence of bad publicity — he can get. So it was good news for him when Democrats on the special House committee created to investigate allegedly unethical behavior by Madigan this week pulled the plug...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci is urging Americans not to see their loved ones for the holidays, warning that celebrations “cannot be business as usual this Christmas.” In an interview with the Washington Post this week, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases explained that he will, personally, duplicate the protocols he followed on Thanksgiving, avoiding private gatherings with his family and spending Christmas solely with his wife.

    My mother was telling me tonight that my cousin Tina had covid. I asked her if the rest of her family got it? Turns out my cousin Tina got it, her daughter who was in high school got it, her son who is in his early twenties did not get it, her husband who is the same age and works in a hospital did not get it. Here's the kicker, her brother who lives with them is 49 years old and had a heart transplant last year got it and recovered in a week. The rest who got it pretty...

The nation’s top infectious diseases expert was asked during a livestreamed interview hosted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health whether he knew anyone in his personal life affected by the illness.

    You should definitely rewatch 'It's A Wonderful Life' this Christmas, but the life of the real George Bailey is equally inspiring.“Celebrity” is lately becoming more and more synonymous with “easily-offended hypocrite who lectures fans to find a sense of self-morality.” Leonardo DiCaprio and Prince Harry shame us about climate change from private jets, while Harry Styles wears dresses to teach us about masculinity and Michelle Williams congratulates herself for killing her unborn child in the name of her career. There’s an ongoing epidemic of selfishness in Tinseltown. Wouldn’t it be refreshing if more stars found something other than themselves to...

    While many presidential Thanksgiving proclamations are worth revisiting in 2020, President Grover Cleveland’s 1888 proclamation is especially resonant.American presidents have declared Thanksgiving proclamations more than 165 times since President George Washington delivered the first in 1789. Although none were given between 1816 and 1862, presidential Thanksgiving proclamations became a tradition on October 3, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln established Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Since then, various presidents have used such executive statements as reminders to offer thanks to God and rest from toil, to offer solace, and to help reorient the focus of the nation to the good, the...

    Anthony Fauci says it’s because people are not following his guidance that they ought to be punished by being alone and away from family on the holidays. Go punish yourself, but not us.I reached out via the family group chat on Facebook messenger. I said I wanted to come home to New England for Thanksgiving, I missed my extended family, and asked if anyone would see us. I wrote: “Hey fam, We’d would really like to come to New England for Thanksgiving and see all of your beautiful faces. Would I be welcomed or are we too scared of covid?...

    Life is too short to live it in fear of dying.More than eight months after “15 days to flatten the curve,” our so-called medical experts, politicos, and pundits are bidding us to avoid our family at all costs over the holidays, lest we die. This Thanksgiving week, family separation is the name of the game, with governors and local authorities implementing onerous restrictions to discourage people from leaving their homes.“If you are planning to spend Thanksgiving with people outside your household, we urge you to reconsider,” wrote a group of governors in the pages of the Washington Post. These authors...

    Keeping people from their suffering loved ones does not safeguard them. It merely subjects them to a different kind of suffering — one for which there might be no recovery.One year ago today, my father died following a 10-year battle with cancer. Our family’s final weeks with him likely mirrored those of many other families. With a new wave of COVID-19 lockdowns beginning, however, I feel compelled to share our story because that journey convinces me that we, as a nation, are subjecting the dying to physical and psychological torture in the name of fighting a pandemic.Caring for FamilyI’m not...
