    Wow, Omnibus bill rushed through both House and Senate without discussion, now to President Trump. Not just the balance of the year, but for many items, for the next three years! Planned Parenthood, token amount for wall and prohibition to build further, funding for sanctuary cities, funding for ObamaCare, new 2nd amendment infringements, and more.

    This thread is a friendly collaborative place for FReepers to analyze information and share opinons. FReepers have a wide variety of reasons for investigating Q Anon content; this is not the appropriate place to criticize or badger those who choose to use some of their time in this manner. I plan to post one thread at a time and ping new drops posted to it. When I post each (new) thread, the prior thread is retired and all new posts occur on the newest thread.

  • CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Woman steals waiter's tip at Memphis restaurant

    03/22/2018 1:07:40 PM PDT · by rightwingintelligentsia · 77 replies
    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A Facebook post is going viral in Memphis, but the people featured in it likely wish it wasn’t. The post, which has been shared more than 339,000 times, reads as follows: I don’t understand how can someone do this. Poor waiter was just doing their job and to have someone take it without reason. She left $20 tip to only have someone else take it. It features two videos. In the first video, you see two women getting ready to leave Casa Mexicana on Hacks Cross. One of them places money on the table – a tip...
  • Canada’s “feminist” Trudeau continues to court Iran despite its oppression of women

    03/22/2018 12:45:27 PM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 12 replies ^ | 03/22/2018 | Christine Douglass-Williams
    Iran’s theocracy represents the antithesis of Canada’s liberal democracy, as it violently constrains its citizens’ speech, movement and religious observance, and deliberately enforces barriers to gender equality. While Canada does not, and should not, limit its interactions only to states that share its ideals, neither should we actively seek to court and reward governments that sponsor terrorism, repress their own people and arbitrarily arrest, torture and kill our citizens. Any dealings with such countries need to be part of a larger framework that reflects our values and protects our interests. Trudeau is an avowed feminist and human rights defender, but...

    Catholic sociologist Stephen Bullivant has issued a detailed report on the state of Christianity in Europe. It is not encouraging. Bullivant, who teaches at St. Mary’s University, outside of London, is director of the Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society. The report, “European Young Adults and Religion,” measured religious practice and affiliation in 22 countries; the data were taken from a survey of those aged 16-29. The proportion of young adults with no religious affiliation ranges from a high of 91 percent in the Czech Republic to a low of 17 percent in Poland. Following the Czech Republic are...

    The Federalist ^ | 3/22/2018 | Molly Hemingway
    Thousands upon thousands of media reports over the last year and a half have intimated, suggested, or flat-out asserted that President Donald Trump is a traitor who colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. What this widely held theory lacks in evidence, its diehard supporters in the media and other anti-Trump bastions make up for with their faith-filled conviction of its truth. An alternate storyline has been unfolding over that same time. The basic contour is that claims Trump stole the election by treasonously colluding with Russia are the result of a coordinated campaign that was...

    SĂO PAULO—With “jewel-tone eyes,” blond hair and a “smattering of light freckles,” Othello looks nothing like most Brazilians, the majority of whom are black or mixed-race. Yet the “Caucasian” American cashier, described in those terms by the Seattle Sperm Bank and known as Donor 9601, is one of the sperm providers most often requested by wealthy Brazilian women importing the DNA of young U.S. men at unprecedented rates. Over the past seven years, human semen imports from the U.S. to Brazil have surged some 3,000% as more rich single women and lesbian couples select donors whose online profiles suggest they...

    Washington D.C. government officials are flocking to doomsday camps around the country.  Which of course begs the question: what do they know that we do not?According to the Washington Examiner, a building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), or virus attack.  Dubbed Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker with preparations for a SHTF scenario. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, the doomsday...

  • The March to Fascism

    03/21/2018 5:38:35 AM PDT · by Scooter100 · 24 replies
    I am posting this because I was completely taken aback by an ex-professor friend of mine, (a HISTORY professor at that!!) who actually suggested that a public figure, with whom he didn't agree, be silenced. That's right, SILENCED, simply for not agreeing with his particular worldview. Astounding. Good Lord, what happened to the free expression of ideas, freedom of speech? To freely express ideas, no matter how reppellant, is the cornerstone of a free society. Once we venture down the road of censoring and silencing, we could be finished in short order. It only took Germany, and Hitler's National Socialist...

    The picture is taken from Q drop #531. This chess game (i.e., Capablanca Vs Marshal 1918) is a favorite of mine; before Q Anon, I never HAD a favorite chess game. This chess match, played 100 years ago, illustrates a battle in which all hope seems lost, defeat is assured, and then the nearly extinguished enact an unanticipated defensive strategy that wins the game. Sound like anyone we know? :) Among chess players (i.e., not me) some say that match was "beautiful" and "among the 3 finest chess games played in history." At the time of this Q drop,...

    So my daughter brought this home from school. Seems like unusual questions to ask a 1st grader, especially the third question. Would they have asked the same questions while Obama was President?  My daughter knows who Trump is but we don’t talk politics with her because she’s 6. She’s being taught about honesty, respect, kindness, responsibility and hard work. Politics have no place at her age. Of course if she has questions I answer in terms & words she understands.  To ask these questions seems like indoctrination or propaganda research to me. How would a 6 year old form an...

    Artificial intelligence is getting smarter every day. While we have a long way to go before robots become self-aware, any robot that comes to know it's a robot could kick off the machine uprising that so many science-fiction dystopias warn about. Fortunately, there might be another way — at least according to renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. My Heart Is Human, My Blood Is Boiling, My Brain I.B.M. "Robots are pretty stupid now. However, eventually they'll be as smart as a mouse, then a rat, then a rabbit, then a cat, then a dog. By the end of the century,...

    I found this great summary of the Russian Collusion story written in German at It would be a great reference to send to any German speaking friends you have. Our German friends most likely do not get this kind of summation in Das Bild or Der Spiegel. I have tried to decipher it into English so that you have an idea of what you are sending. It is interesting that the German version goes into fuller detail than the English rendition on The Epoch Times. They even had a bit of fun with Obama talking about him discovering...

    President Trump must face a defamation lawsuit by a former contestant on his reality TV show “The Apprentice” after a Manhattan judge ruled in a first-of-its kind decision that he could not claim immunity through his job as the nation’s commander-in-chief. “No one is above the law,” Justice Jennifer Schecter wrote in the 19-page decision released Tuesday. Trump had argued that presidents are shielded from civil litigation in state courts under the US Constitution’s supremacy clause, but that assertion had never been fully tested by the courts — until now. “It is settled that the President of the United States...
  • Sweden: Mosque that applied to broadcast call to prayer has asked Allah to “destroy the Jews”

    The mosque is denigrating Jews, urging men to control their daughters and women, using Saudi Arabia’s official curriculum and books in their Islamic schools, and urging Muslims not to have contact with “kuffar” (unbelievers). Växjö Mosque has featured in the media in recent weeks, since the foundation applied to broadcast the call to prayer, which caused a debate at the highest political levels. A survey also showed that a majority of the Swedish people want to ban the calls to prayer. On Tuesday, it was revealed that this particular mosque deals with hatred and features hatred on its official Facebook...
