  • More American babies needed - critical chapter in Impimp manifesto (vanity)

    https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/USA/united-states/fertility-rate US TFR is 1.74 and below the replacement level of 2.1. It has plummeted rapidly over the past decade. American fertility dropped for briefly in the 1970s. So three things are important here: 1) why is this important, 2) what is the cause, and 3) how do we fix this? Why is this important - It is disgusting that I need to say why this is important. It is disgusting that there are Malthusians who accept the lie of overpopulation even right here on Freerepublic. The primacy of reproduction is seen in God’s command to go forth and multiply....

    Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr recently said the following:“This is not Oregon. We are not Washington or New York or California. We’re Georgia. Do not come to our state and engage in violence against our citizens, against our law enforcement or break our laws. It will not be tolerated. You will be charged, and we will not stop until we make sure that everybody that’s been a part of this has been held accountable.”CNN recently published this article, which is titled, “7 charged with domestic terrorism after deadly shooting near proposed Atlanta police training facility.”I’ve said this before, and I’ll...

    Justin Bieber has sold all his peaches. The 28 year old pop star becomes the youngest of all music performers to sell the entire rights to his songs. The buyer is Hipgnosis, the very hot firm that has bought out catalogs of much older stars for more money and with more material. Universal Music Group will own Bieber’s master recordings. But all the songs like “Peaches” and “”Love Yourself” will be owned by Hipgnosis, including parts of songs he wrote with other people. The price is $200 million, which after taxes and paying all the lawyers involved, and maintaining Bieber’s...
  • Di Leo: Facts Are Facts, No Matter What the Dictators of Davos Say

    The world’s central planners meet, speak, plan and party together. Whether they do so in Davos or New York, Paris or Washington D.C.; whether in the name of the WEF or UN or Congress or EU, these central planners share the same goal: to repeat so many seemingly-unrelated lies, so often and so vigorously, that they can get the public to believe that statism is the solution. Well, their solution will never be right, because their premises will never be right. Facts are facts, no matter what the dictators of Davos may say. For example, a few truths: 1. Carbon...

    In the name of diversity, equity, and inclusion, a Connecticut bill would require fire departments to hire female firefighters who aren’t strong enough to do their job.I’m against this proposal.As always, I support 100% meritocracy.For the record, I am male, and I am too weak to pass their strength test. Weaklings like me should not be firefighters. Any woman who is strong enough to pass the test deserves to be hired.I support meritocracy because I want airplanes that don’t crash, bridges that don’t fall down, doctors who don’t kill their patients, and firefighters who fight fires and save lives.

    Powerline ^ | 22 Jan 2023 | John Hinderaker
    David Horowitz authored this op-ed on the real lessons of the January 6 demonstration. Have the Democrats gotten the mileage they hoped for from their plan, which certainly was in place on that day, and perhaps before it? I doubt it.According to a report by the Inspector General, Donald Trump offered to provide thousands of national guard troops to protect the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021. Trump was concerned about the possibility of trouble from fringe elements on the left and right who might see it as an occasion to cause trouble. His offer was rejected by Pelosi and...

    An education professor delivered a lecture in early January at a major mathematician meeting that described college math as “white” and “cisheteropatriarchal.” “Undergraduate Mathematics Education as a White, Cisheteropatriarchal Space and Opportunities for Structural Disruption to Advance Queer of Color Justice” was the full title of the lecture given by Luis Leyva, associate professor of mathematics education at the Peabody College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University. Leyva delivered the lecture Jan. 4 in Boston at the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2023. The summit is the “largest mathematics gathering in the world,” according to its website. “Cisheteropatriarchal” is a...
  • Union membership dropped to record low in 2022

    Politico ^ | 1/19/22 | Eleanor Mueller
    Union membership hit an all-time low in 2022 despite a surge in organizing efforts that emerged during the pandemic. The percentage of U.S. workers who belong to a union dropped from 10.3 percent to 10.1 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Thursday, as the job market added non-unionized workers at a faster rate than unionized workers. That’s the lowest the figure has been since the agency first started tracking comparable data nearly four decades ago. The decline comes despite the highest union approval rate in decades and a pro-union administration — and backs up earlier findings that while many...

    I was walking out of a store and see a woman in an electric focus parking next to my car. She has 2 bumper stickers "I support Planned Parenthood" "Black Lives Matter" I got in my car while trying to understand this but failed. Then I watched her strap on a reusable black facemask I waited a few seconds till she got out of her car and started backing out, rolled down my window and said to her "I am kind of confused cause your bumper stickers contradict each other." She looked at me like she was confused so I...

    Just a reminder of the three rules that determine how liberals decide whether something is true or not. If they deny this, that is an act of taqiyya, which fits under Rules 1 & 2, at least.1. Truth is whatever serves the Party. 2. If you repeat something enough, it's true. 3. If the facts contradict the narrative, the facts lie.

    NHL star Ivan Provorov declined to participate in the Philadelphia Flyers' Pride Night or wear a rainbow-colored jersey, saying if he wanted to support the gay agenda he would have played soccer instead of hockey. "Listen, man, I got nothing against the gays," said Provorov to a crowd of outraged sports writers as the rest of his team pranced across the ice gracefully in their colorful outfits. "But I ain't wearing that thing. Let's leave all that gay stuff in soccer where it belongs. Also, I believe in God and stuff, and I don't want to disobey him, so there's...

    NPR recently published this article, which is titled, “Recycling plastic is practically impossible – and the problem is getting worse.”The article states:“The vast majority of plastic that people use, and in many cases put into blue recycling bins, is headed to landfills, or worse, according to a report from Greenpeace on the state of plastic recycling in the U.S.”“The report cites separate data published this May which revealed that the amount of plastic actually turned into new things has fallen to new lows of around 5%. That number is expected to drop further as more plastic is produced.”“Greenpeace found that...

    The whole World Economic Forum/Davos experience is one part Bond villain parody, one part clout seeking billionaires, one part megalomania, a heaping cup of greed, and a dash of rent seeking. In 2023 things have reached the point where any association with Davos should put an individual or organization under notice of suspicion. Amazing to see people who claim to be American conservatives or lovers of liberty attending in an non-ironic, non-protesting capacity. This wannabee gaggle of quasi-oligarchs and autocrat throne sniffers represents everything that is wrong with the human desire for control, power, and to crush the individual for...

  • Di Leo: How Mishandled Classified Documents Could Spell the End for Biden

    Illinois Review ^ | January 18, AD 2023 | John F Di Leo
    The Question of the Day – the question on everyone’s mind is, “why classified documents?” If the Democrats, having understandably decided that it is finally time to throw Joe Biden under the bus, are looking for the perfect method to get popular support for his ejection from office, why use classified document abuse as the justification? Nobody knows for sure, of course. You can’t read Democrats’ minds, for obvious reasons. But there has to be a reason they chose this one, out of all the issues at hand that would justify his departure. He could, and certainly should, be thrown...
