    Natan Sharansky, one of the great heroes of the twentieth century, corresponded with Alexei Navalny, one of the great heroes of the twenty-first. Navalny, through his lawyers, managed to get a Russian copy of Sharansky’s famous memoir Fear No Evil. He read it in the gulag where he was killed on February 16, 2024. We know this because he sent Sharansky two letters: one in March and one in April of 2023. Today we are honored to publish these historic letters in their original, handwritten Russian and in English. (We are grateful to Anna Lyubarskaja and Rebekah Koffler for their...
  • Army Sends Letter To Troops Dismissed For Refusing COVID Vaccine Amid Military's Recruitment Woes

    11/21/2023 4:49:29 PM PST · by Enlightened1 · 27 replies
    The U.S. Army sent a letter to former service members dismissed for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, informing them they can request corrections of their discharge records, as the military branch reportedly struggles with recruitment three years after the onset of the pandemic. The letter, which gained traction on social media, was addressed to former service members and notified of "new Army guidance regarding the correction of military records for former members of the Army following the rescission of the COVID-19 vaccination requirement." It states, "as a result of the rescission of all current COVID-19 vaccination requirements, former Soldiers who were...

    Well, I have scoured a half dozen web sites. I confess that I, perhaps, am not good at searching the Internet. But how many key words would one have to know and use to search for a mailing address ??!! So, would anyone like to make fun of me, at least, while you, please provide a valid USPS mailing address for the celebrated talk show and TV personality, Sean Hannity?

    A Quebec woman was sentenced to 22 years in prison Thursday after sending letters containing ricin to former President Trump in 2020. Pascale Ferrier, 55, pleaded guilty in January to making ricin in her home and mailing Trump and eight Texas law enforcement officials threatening letters laced with it. The toxin is made from waste material left over from processing castor beans. She faced a charge of prohibitions with respect to biological weapons in Washington, D.C., and eight counts of the same charge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. She agreed to have the Texas...

    On Friday night the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) reported that 30 Kansas legislators were sent envelopes containing white powder. KBI agents working alongside the FBI, KDHE, OSFM, Kansas National Guard, KHP, and several local police departments, sheriff’s offices, and fire departments have responded after mail was received by legislators and other public officials containing a suspicious white powder. As of Sunday night approximately 100 envelopes with white powder were sent to Kansas legislators and public officials. Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach also received a letter with the white powder. The media ignored this story over the weekend. President Trump...

    Former President Donald Trump lifts the lid on his love, hate, hate, hate relationship with the Bush family in his new book of letters, which includes thank-you notes from a president, a first lady and a president-to-be, alongside his own scathing commentary of where they went wrong. In so doing it charts the shift from a time when establishment Republicans would thank Trump for his donations, before the power in the party moved to outsiders and upstarts. 'Letters to Trump,' was published by Winning Team Publishing on Tuesday. The $99 book includes letters from President Richard Nixon, actor Alec Baldwin,...

    NEW YORK, NY — After turning himself in to be arraigned on multiple charges in Manhattan, President Donald Trump immediately began writing his first epistle to his loyal disciples in Florida. The letter, already being dubbed "1 Floridians," is highly anticipated by its future recipients. "We are looking forward to President Trump's letter," said Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz. "Receiving his encouragement and instruction about how we should be living in his absence will be a treasured resource for all of us while he is held prisoner." The text, which will be separated into chapters and verses, is believed to be...

    Former President Donald Trump is releasing a new book that features private letters from politicians and celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, who wrote to him in 2000. She wrote at the time, "Too bad we're not running for office," according to Axios. "What a TEAM!" "I think he'd written a book and said that he wanted me to be his running mate ... if he decided to run," Winfrey said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "CBS Mornings." "And when I heard that this letter is now going to be a part of a book, I thought, 'Oh, wasn't that...

    Medical freedom is not explicitly mentioned in the Bill of Rights for a very simple reason. The founding fathers never envisioned a world in which medical procedures would be forced on a free people. This oversight has been corrected for the most part by laws at the state and national level protecting an American citizen’s right to choose how they will handle their own healthcare. Patients’ rights have been attacked more and more in recent years, but never has there been a more draconian onslaught than what we’re seeing with the so-called “Covid vaccines.” Government, private businesses, and organizations are...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters Tuesday he was "amazed at how badly" the first six months of the Biden administration has been for the U.S. "The border is in chaos. Afghanistan is teetering. China is rearing its head. Inflation is growing because we're spending so much money that's not paid for," Graham said. "You see lawlessness in the streets, the cops do not feel supported." Graham said he will be sending a letter to President Biden

    EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., on Tuesday criticized what he described as "unacceptable" restrictions on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), accusing the Biden administration of seeking to dismantle interior enforcement with rules that limits arrests and deportations. "Your actions to limit U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ability to enforce immigration law are unacceptable and must be reversed," Biggs said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. "Limiting enforcement of immigration law is an affront to the rule of law and an insult to the American people and the millions of immigrants who have come to our country...

    10 billion. That’s how many letters were sent and received by Soviet soldiers during WWII... Since June 1941, when Nazi Germany attacked Soviet borders, until May 1945 these letters became a thin thread, at times the only one, to connect families and friends torn from each other by a terrible war. These letters found their way from battlefields and hospitals, from evacuation zones and abandoned homes. Words of hope, love and worry addressing dear ones. How many of those words would become farewells...
  • Renaissance-era letter sealed for centuries just virtually unfolded and read for the first time

    Live Science ^ | 03/02/2021 | By Mindy Weisberger -
    More than 600 years ago, someone intricately folded, sealed and posted a letter that was never delivered. Now, scientists have digitally "unfolded" this and other similarly locked letters found in a 17th-century trunk in The Hague, using X-rays. For centuries prior to the invention of sealed envelopes, sensitive correspondence was protected from prying eyes through complex folding techniques called "letterlocking," which transformed a letter into its own secure envelope. However, locked letters that survive to the present are fragile and can be opened physically only by slicing them to pieces. The new X-ray method offers researchers a non-invasive alternative, maintaining...
  • USPS Informed Delivery (vanity)

    Due to a confusion with house numbers, about once a month my mail gets misdirected. Long story. A friend recently told me about USPS Informed Delivery. Once you sign up (it’s free) you'll receive a daily email with pictures of all the mail you’re supposed to be getting. So at least now I now what mail to expect. And if it’s not in my mailbox, I know that it has been misdirected. This Informed Delivery thing a nice service. So I thought some of my fellow Freepers might be interested in it.

    ‘Whistleblower’ calls out John Kerry, says he ‘knows for fact’ Obama admin sent multiple letters directly to Soleimani Middle East expert Michael Doran slammed former Secretary of State John Kerry in a series of tweets exposing the Obama administration’s dealings with Iran. “I must become a whistleblower,” Doran, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute specializing in Middle East security issues, tweeted Friday in response to a self-serving opinion piece by Kerry published by The New York Times. Doran called out Kerry for his op-ed and the “ludicrous and reckless contention” that “diplomacy” with Iran and the nuclear deal negotiated...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter sent in August, a South Korean newspaper reported on Monday, citing diplomatic sources. The letter, the second Trump received from Kim last month amid stalled denuclearization talks between the two countries, pre-dated North Korea's latest launch of short-range projectiles a week ago. In the second letter, which was passed to Trump in the third week of August, Kim spoke of his willingness to meet Trump for another summit, one source reportedly told the Joongang Ilbo newspaper. The White House, the U.S. State Department...

    The DNA of life on Earth naturally stores its information in just four key chemicals—guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine, commonly referred to as G, C, A and T, respectively. Now scientists have doubled this number of life’s building blocks, creating for the first time a synthetic, eight-letter genetic language that seems to store and transcribe information just like natural DNA. In a study published on 22 February in Science, a consortium of researchers led by Steven Benner, founder of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Alachua, Florida, suggests that an expanded genetic alphabet could, in theory, also support life....
