    The Beatles attempted to make a big-screen adaption of "Lord of The Rings" in 1968, but the band was denied rights to the fantasy books by J.R.R. Tolkien, according to filmmaker Peter Jackson. Jackson — who is best known for his sprawling trilogy based on Tolkien's "Lord of The Rings" series — is currently on the press run for his latest work "The Beatles: Get Back," a docuseries crafted from footage of the band recording their last album, "Let It Be," when he told the BBC that he had discovered the fab four had been keen on adapting Tolkien. "I've...

    Right now there are four Mexican gents fixing my carport roof. I am amazed by the work ethic shown by these four men, they don’t chit chat, they don’t stand idle and smoke, they just work. My roof is going to get done today, weeks ahead of schedule by four men who barely speak any English. The jobs were there and they saw an opportunity and I hope they get paid well for their labors. For the record I’m 60 with health issues and had to hire this job out, I’m not lazy, just grateful there are still hard working...

    [H/T ExTexasRedhead and Jane Long]In January 2019, the WHO defined the growing number of vaccination critics as one of the top ten threats to global health, and since the unprecedented Corona vaccination fiasco, the number of vaccination refusers has truly multiplied.Meanwhile, resistance is forming even within the orthodox medical establishment. But the masterminds of the WHO continue to insist on an unrealistic vaccination coverage rate of at least 70 percent.In this article, Jan Walter describes, with extensive source citations, which techniques are possible to still vaccinate the population, when people are becoming increasingly critical of vaccinations. This is only fueled...

    London — A study conducted in the U.K. offers some of the first large-scale, real-world data on how well vaccination protects people against catching a "breakthrough" COVID-19 infection, and how well it protects breakthrough patients from becoming seriously ill. The results are encouraging. The peer-reviewed study published Wednesday in The Lancet medical journal will help policy makers and epidemiologists fill in a significant gap in the understanding of the true efficacy of three of the major vaccines being used worldwide.... The data, gathered from December 8, 2020, through July 4, 2021, show that of more than 1.2 million adults who...

    UFC commentator and 'The Joe Rogan Experience' podcast host Joe Rogan shared on Instagram on Wednesday that he tested positive for COVID-19. On Instagram Live he told his followers that after several days of feeling feverish and exhausted, he tested positive. "We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it," he said in the video. "Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone." He claimed that after three days, he felt rejuvenated.

    A Texas man who had organized a “Freedom Rally” in protest of COVID-19 restrictions is now on a ventilator after becoming infected with COVID, according to his pregnant wife. ...The San Angelo Standard-Times had reported that Caleb had been hospitalized with COVID for more than a month, with Wallace telling the paper that her husband initially refused to get tested for the virus and tried his own vitamin regimen to treat himself rather than seeing a doctor. Most days his wife said that she and her three daughters FaceTime him in the hospital with the help of a nurse, though...

    I would like some clarification as to the truth of the rules and situation here on the FR. Several times over the last few years it has been mandated by certain users that a prerequisite for participating here, conversing here, or donating here is mandated that you must first be a White Puritan Christian. No exceptions or you are considered a Troll. You must believe what they believe exactly or you should hit the highway. Anyone else conservative or not, are to be considered as just trolls and should excommunicate themselves and leave. This is an important clarification. Because if...

    LGBTQIAXYZ (and some Marxists I’m sure) held a symposium to discuss transgender and critical race applied philosophies to Lord of the Rings. (Some believe this is a quasi-marketing campaign for the Amazon Lord of the Rings series coming out next year which looks to upend Tolkien’s Christian worldview and woke-ize it with lots of sex and strong wahmen. Just Some Guy rips them a new one here easily destroying one of their arguments.

Men, Elves and Dwarves have their own sequestered production units for the different Free Peoples [this intriguing bit rather suggests the narrative might be constructed across wide time jumps or told from pockets of different historical viewpoints, perhaps even an anthology approach rotating characters from the various Free Peoples all reacting to the same thing, but over what timelines we still do not know.

    I do not expect any of my fellow “liberal/progressive” Democrats to share my concern here, but because I believe that it will be very difficult for the Democrats to retain the pesidency in 2024 and to retain control of Congress in 2022 (because of Republican state legislatures wanting to make it hard for many Democrats to vote), I want whoever the Republicans nominate for president in 2024 to be a high-quality person such as Carly Fiorina (who voted for Biden-Harris in 2020). I like it that she is widely known to be a very sensitive, empathetic and compassionate person on...

    This is my first vanity, forgive the poor quality. Looking back with 20-20 hindsight, it seems increasingly clear that: 1. China Virus was a coordinated effort with the DNC to disrupt the Trump economy and to create conditions conducive to (i) keeping Biden in his basement, and (ii) mass mail-in balloting. DNC wins the election. China wins by getting their agent in the Oval Office. 2. This is a way to make Hillary President (am I being paranoid?). Biden is Non Compos Mentis so he's just an empty suit. Kamala is likewise a placeholder. The plan is: (1) Biden resigns,...

    The Creek Fire – now one of the largest wildfires burning in California – had just ignited at the start of Labor Day weekend as many departed into the Sierra Nevada, expecting three days of mountain bliss. Instead, unaware backpackers without cell service faced an exploding wildfire that has grown by thousands of acres daily in eastern Fresno and Madera counties since Friday night. Some are still unaccounted for. Fresno County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Botti said he thought approximately 10 hikers still hadn’t been located, but weren’t officially considered missing as of Thursday afternoon. Hiker Heather Craig, reported missing...

    1- Basic auto repair shops will disappear. Read on to know why. 2- A gas/diesel engine has 20,000 individual parts. An electrical motor has only 20 parts. Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are repaired only by dealers. It takes only 10 minutes to remove and replace an electric motor. 3- Faulty electric motors are not repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional repair shop that repairs them with robots 4- Your electric motor malfunction light goes on, so you drive up to what looks like a car wash, and your car is towed through...
