    Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was “personally” grateful to “Speaker Mike Johnson for the decision that keeps history on the right track” after Johnson shepherded a $61 billion Ukraine aid package through the House Saturday. The image of scores of Democrats waving Ukraine flags and cheering on the House floor as the bill passed will forever sting the conservatives from whose ranks Johnson rose, only to serve them with the ultimate betrayal.

    FAYETTEVILLE, AR — As the December days began to tick away, a local man grew so desperate in his attempt to buy his wife a great Christmas gift that he decided to reach out to the National Security Agency to find out what she wants. "I figured it's my best shot," said Willard McBane. "She's always so difficult to buy for, and she doesn't ever give me any hints, so I knew I needed to bring the NSA in on this one." At first, Willard's attempts to ask for help were subtle. "I just started speaking out loud whenever I...

    It was Christmas Eve 1881. I was fifteen years old and feeling like the world had caved in on me because there just hadn't been enough money to buy me the rifle that I'd wanted so bad that year for Christmas. We did the chores early that night for some reason. I just figured Daddy wanted a little extra time so we could read in the Bible. After supper was over I took my boots off and stretched out in front of the fireplace and waited for Daddy to get down the old Bible. I was still feeling sorry for...

    The White House on Monday announced $55 billion in economic aid, health care, and security support for Africa. President Joe Biden hosted a meeting for African leaders that began on Tuesday, during which the White House promised more details of the massive benefits package would be divulged. “Working closely with Congress, the U.S. will commit $55 billion to Africa over the course of the next three years across a wide range of sectors to tackle the core challenges of our time,” White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on Monday.

    Former Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Charlie Dent on Saturday said former President Trump’s speech at a rally on Saturday night in the Keystone State was a “major gift” for Democrats. “Most Republican candidates don’t want anything to do with Donald Trump in this general election. They want this to be about Joe Biden and the Democrats, but to the extent Trump inserts himself into this conversation, he’s giving the Democrats a major gift right now,” Dent said on CNN.

  • Pope Francis meets Hungary’s Viktor Orban during trip

    09/12/2021 8:16:03 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 2 replies ^ | September 13, 2021 | Communist News Network
    Pope Francis urged Hungarians to be more “open” and “considered” during an open-air mass in Budapest after meeting the country’s hardline Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Sunday. Orban’s personal gift to the Pope, however, appeared to underline his nationalist and anti-immigrant stance: a copy of a 13th century letter from Hungarian King Bela IV to Pope Innocent IV. The letter asked the then-Pope for help in resisting the Mongol invasion of Hungary and Europe. Balazs Orban, Deputy Minister for the Prime Minister’s Office, described the gift on his Facebook page, saying, “there are many similarities between the situation at that...

    I am asking for prayers for my sweet friend Beth. She was recently diagnosed with early stages of dementia. Beth was a tremendous source of strength and courage for me when I lost my mother to cancer back in 1997. I tried to help her as she watched her own mother languish for several years as dementia took her piece by piece. Beth worked with my husband for over 20 years until recently when she had to retire due to "episodes" brought on by the same disease that took her mom. For Christmas, I made her what I hoped was...

    For Christmas and her January birthday we usually give my near 30 yr old niece cash & a small gift. But, in past years she has shown her absolute ignorance by supporting Antifa, BLM, and Biden. Her most recent response to a video I sent her of Diamond & Silk was "the election is not being stolen." Well, instead of actually disowning her, I've decided I'd like to just send her fraudulent gifts (sending something stolen just wouldn't work )... I have some monopoly money but need something more real, that will maybe get her attention....since Freepers are smart and...

    The year 2019 has expired, along with Kim Jong Un’s promise/threat to send President Donald Trump “a Christmas gift” by the end of the year. Since the proffered holiday present was tied to North Korea’s demand that Washington lift sanctions for its nuclear program, it was widely interpreted by U.S. experts to portend an escalation in the negotiations standoff, such as a new long-range missile launch or even a nuclear test. As Gift Day approached, Pyongyang increased its warnings with escalating rhetoric harkening back to the personal insult stage of the early Trump administration. Western concerns and tensions mounted amid...

    U.S. officials are on high alert for signs of a possible missile launch from North Korea in the coming days that officials have referred to as a “Christmas gift.” A significant launch or nuclear test would raise the end of North Korea's self-imposed moratorium on missile launches and tests. It would also be a major blow to one of President Trump’s major foreign policy goals to get North Korea back to the negotiating table to eliminate its nuclear weapons. In this Dec. 16, 2019, photo, South Korean army soldiers stand guard at the Unification Bridge, which leads to the Panmunjom...
  • Joe Biden: DACA Illegals ‘Become American Before a Lot of Americans’

    08/30/2019 12:12:36 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 63 replies ^ | 30 Aug 2019 | Neil Munro
    Joe Biden praised young ‘DACA’ illegal migrants as more American than Americans during a Thursday campaign event in Rock Hill, South Carolina. “We have to find a [amnesty] pathway for dreamers … These kids who come, and they end up doing well. They become American before a lot of Americans become Americans — No, I’m serious, they get in school, they do well, they contribute to the community, they contribute to the country,” he said. Biden’s praise for illegals was tied up with his view of America as a land of working immigrants — rather than of Americans and their...

    ISTANBUL (REUTERS) - President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has defended his decision to accept a luxury plane from Qatar at a time of economic hardship, saying it was a gift, not a purchase, and that it had been donated to the Turkish state, not to him personally. State broadcaster TRT Haber said last week the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani had given Mr Erdogan the aircraft, which Turkish media said was a Boeing 747, sparking criticism from Turkey's opposition. A lawmaker from the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), Mr Sezgin Tanrikulu, had expressed concern that the aircraft...

We created a government that is once again of, by and for the people. But those same forces that tried to stop us during the election are still out to destroy our movement. We must keep fighting the media, Democrats, and the special interests who thrive off of the swamp. Contribute to keep fighting for America.

    The US transferred $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), funds former US President Barack Obama quietly released in his waning hours. The Trump administration initially announced a freeze on the move. During Wednesday’s press briefing, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said it was his “understanding” the funds had been released, after initially saying there was an ongoing review. The funds are meant for Palestinian programs, including “water, infrastructure, education, renewable energy, civil society, municipal governance, and the rule of law, as well as Gaza recovery,” he said. A small amount was transferred directly to Israeli PA creditors, as well...

    The wow aspect is not so much that Sean Hannity purchased it, but rather that Jon McNaughton actually sold the original. McNaughton never sells his originals… at least he never used to. November 9th McNaughton announced via facebook that he sold the original to Sean Hannity: “Sean Hannity just purchased my painting “The Forgotten Man” to give to Donald Trump to hang in the White House”
