    Free Republic ^ | 07.03.20 | Freedom56v2
    One of my children is considering a move to Billings to take advantage of a good career opportunity. However, no one in our family or circle of friends has been there. So I would really appreciate any input Freepers familiar with the area can provide! Thanks much :) *We have lived in Fargo and one of the kids lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota--may be some similarities for comparison....

    Kayleigh McEnany has nothing to do with this post but I figure readers would rather look at her than my botched attempt to make Donald John Trump look like Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke. As the president takes heat from Chicken Littles who whine about acting presidential, President Trump remains coolly presidential in handling two nation-paralyzing events simultaneously. In both cases, the president gave Democrats plenty of rope and watched them hang themselves. Governor Andrew Cuomo, D-Covid 19, started out as the dreamy Democrat alternative to President Trump. He ended up turning his state into Covid 19 Central, and...

    For year now, Bill Gates has been using Africa as his personal laboratory to carry out experiments on the people of the African continent. He can do this with the approval and authority of the United Nations and the World Health Organization, and you could, too, if you could donate $4 billion dollars like he did. Bill Gates is the world’s largest private funding source of the WHO, and as such, he has an open door to go to Africa and do as he pleases. But Africans, thanks to social media, have gotten wise to his schemes over the years,...

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stated in an interview published Friday that she would have done a “better job” than President Trump in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “We wouldn’t have been able to stop the pandemic at our borders the way that Trump claimed in the beginning, but we sure could have done a better job saving lives, modeling better, more responsible behavior,” Clinton told the Hollywood Reporter when asked if she would have handled the “current moment of crisis” better than President Trump. “I don’t think we necessarily should have had as deep an economic assault on...

    In one of the most moving Hannity Shows ever, the father of a son slain in the CHOP zone in Seattle spoke out. It was a very emotional interview for Hannity and viewers who could see the pain the father felt after losing his son so senselessly. Hannity held one of his most riveting interviews of all time last night when he brought on his show the father of a teen slain in Seattle’s CHOP zone a few weeks ago. Hannity provided the father ample time to share his story and feelings about losing his son so senselessly. Horace...

    Democrats, their liberal media, Never-Trump RINOs and Liz Cheney are very upset to hear Russia has been paying the Taliban to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan. They’re not doing a very good job. ** There were 22 US deaths in Afghanistan total in 2019. ** There have been 9 US deaths in Afghanistan so far this year. ** Compare that to the 496 deaths in 2010 and 412 deaths in 2011 under Obama!Facts matter.The Taliban also laughs at these latest reports. In a new report at The Daily Beast the Taliban admits Russia has been paying them for US...

    Over the last few weeks we've seen the wanton and mindless destruction of American symbols and icons. The truth is that the fabric of America is being destroyed and it is be intention. A new original sin has been established- any- and I mean any- connection to anyone who might have owned slaves, or knew anyone who owned slaves and curiously, even those who gave their lives to end slavery. Boston has voted to take down the Emancipation statue. It features Abraham Lincoln and a newly freed slave rising from his now broken shackles. The statue was paid for largely...

    os Angeles School Police Chief Todd Chamberlain resigned following a decision by the school board to cut millions in funding and remove officers from campuses. Chamberlain, who stepped into the job just last year, turned in his resignation on Wednesday, according to district spokeswoman Shannon Haber, the Los Angeles Times reported. With over 35 years in law enforcement, Chamberlain made the decision one day after the school board gave in to what he called a “potentially life-threatening” choice to cut the school police budget by $25 million....Los Angeles school police chief releases powerful resignation statement after board slashes funding July...

Now, for some strange reason, the LA area is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases....Despite the fact the experts now deem that the virus can no longer be contained, California Governor Gavin Newsom is pulling the COVID-trigger. He canceled fireworks and other activities enjoyed by millions of non-protesting and social-distance-practicing Californians ahead of the July 4th holiday... Los Angeles County beaches will also be closed during the holiday. However, many good people are tired of the clearly useless and political restrictions and are beginning to push back against the new rules….including...

    MADISON, WI — Empower Wisconsin has learned that Gov. Tony Evers’ power-grabbing Department of Health Services is set to soon post the names of all Wisconsin businesses that have recorded at least two COVID-19 cases. This government-sanctioned disclosure will slam a Scarlet Letter on Badger State businesses already reeling from the pandemic and state and local lockdowns, business advocates say. “Any business that is confronted with this report and suffers the unintended consequences, that’s equivalent to the old saying, Where do you go to get your good name back,” said Brandon Scholz, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Grocers Association....

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is essentially setting policy across the country, endlessly putting out a stream of so-called facts (that they then revise or rescind).Their latest update on COVID-19, posted on Tuesday, is a real doozy. Here’s what the CDC said in a section headlined: What do your results mean? “A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such...

    Mainstream media show an ‘absolute refusal to grapple with the data’. Amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, riots, looting, and calls to defund the police, a Harvard economist has found that proactive policing saves black lives. Roland Fryer the youngest African-American professor to receive tenure in Harvard history, Fryer uses a data-driven approach on fraught social issues. He made waves four years ago with his research on use-of-force incidents by race. It found that black suspects were less likely to be shot by police than white suspects. This news wasn’t well-received by the mainstream media so they decided to ignore...

    A Virginia General Assembly law change, which goes into effect July 1, lays out the process for any locality to take down war memorials and monuments. That law also leaves a 60-day waiting period before anything can come down. Work crews wielding a giant crane, harnesses and power tools wrested an imposing statue of Gen. Stonewall Jackson from its concrete pedestal along Richmond’s famed Monument Avenue on Wednesday, just hours after the mayor ordered the removal of all Confederate statues from city land. The Jackson statue is the latest of several dozen Confederate symbols to be removed from public land...

    Is ANTIFA planning nationwide civil disturbances on July 4th or is it another Tik-Tok hoax? Better to be prepared, because either way, ANTIFA will be paying a visit to your town eventually. Ads like the one you see below are starting to show up on Craigslist sites all over America, and they are a rallying cry for recruitment of new ANTIFA soldiers. Where do they get the money to pay their recruits $25 dollars per hour? From the myriad George Soros NGOs that launder the money through him and to them. Here is one such ad spotted by Janette just...

    democrats desperately want the hatred, rioting and violence to continue. They are motivated to see it go on. They profit from it. To wit: Chuck Schumer Blocks GOP Measure to Condemn Defunding PoliceSenate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) blocked a measure sponsored by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) to condemn Democrat measures to defund police departments across the country. Cruz and Cotton tried to pass the resolution to condemn measures to defund the police by unanimous consent; however, Schumer denied the Republicans’ move to gain unanimous consent. Cotton said that Schumer “must want to defund the police.” Cruz said:...
