    On an October afternoon before the 2016 election, a huge banner was unfurled from the Manhattan Bridge in New York City: Vladimir V. Putin against a Russian-flag background, and the unlikely word “Peacemaker” below. It was a daredevil happy birthday to the Russian president, who was turning 64. In November, shortly after Donald J. Trump eked out a victory that Moscow had worked to assist, an even bigger banner appeared, this time on the Arlington Memorial Bridge in Washington: the face of President Barack Obama and “Goodbye Murderer” in big red letters. Police never identified who had hung the banners,...

    A new hypersonic plane could rival Superman for the fastest thing in the sky. A team of researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences just announced that when they tested a scaled-down model of their new hypersonic plane in a wind tunnel it got up to speeds of Mach 7, or 5,300 miles per hour. That’s way past Mach 5, which NASA defines as five times faster than the speed of sound, which would be about 3,800 mph at sea level. The researchers published their results in the Chinese journal Physics, Mechanics & Astronomy. The plane was developed for the...

    A troop of golden retriever puppies stole the show when they took part in Chile's annual military parade. The fluffy young dogs snuggled, tongues lolling, in neon green pouches worn across the chests of a row of marching police trainers. The puppy section was followed by a line of uniformed men walking adult golden retrievers and labradors, which all wore little boots. The dogs belong to the Canine Unit of the Carabineros de Chile, the country's national police force.

    Ivanka Trump is a businesswoman and an adviser to the president, but her childhood dream was actually to become an astronaut. The 36-year-old first daughter revealed her secret ambition while visiting NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, with Republican Senator Ted Cruz on Thursday. Ivanka toured Mission Control and spoke with the International Space Station crew during her trip to the facility, where human spaceflight training, research, and flight control are conducted. Astronaut Nicole Mann provided Ivanka with a guided tour of the space center, including the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility that holds a full-size copy of the International...

    From the article: "some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again: There is no truth, only competing agendas. All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism. There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor. The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable. Crime...

    Box released the video to let residents know exactly what happened that morning. Box said they had moved to that Abilene home in April, but they had never talked to the Millers until the morning of Sept. 1. The Millers were next-door neighbors. “We had thrown out a twin mattress in a dumpster in our alley a few days before the shooting,” Box said. “You have to have the mattress in the dumpster or they will not haul it away.” On the morning of Sept. 1, Box and Howard were in the backyard when they saw the mattress was on...

  • A Person's Character Can Now Be Determined By What He Did In High School?

    09/21/2018 4:56:46 AM PDT · by Saveourcountry · 47 replies
    Regardless of the guilt or innocence of Kavanaugh, it is ridiculous to think that what someone did in high school, should determine his character after leading an exemplary life for the next 40 years. The average person looking at this is intelligent enough to look at this for what it is, no matter what they claim. To me it is like the "hanging chad" controversy when they were trying to claim that George Bush was elected illegitimately because the people in Florida were too stupid to vote correctly. Both of these tactics are pathetic and defy common sense - but...

    When Christian institutions are involved in the abuse of minors, there is rightly talk about the terrible nature of the crime and how it cannot be allowed to happen. However, there are many who use such examples to attack Christianity as a whole, saying that “other” groups don’t engage in such activity, and often times these people will name groups such as Buddhists. However, people are people and sin knows no boundaries. While Christians are supposed to avoid sin and follow Christ, all men have free will. Likewise, the sins of a Christian do not extend legitimacy to another religious...

Le Pen, who is head of the former National Front party – now National Rally (Rassemblement National) revealed on Twitter her shock and anger at being ordered to undertake a psychiatric assessment. The unusual summoning is in relation to Le Pen having tweeted out gruesome propaganda images from terror group Isis that showed the bodies of people having been executed by...

    Jodie May of Grandville, Michigan, was forced to appear before a district judge earlier this week on a larceny charge for taking away her daughter’s cellphone as punishment. May took the iPhone 6 from her 15-year-old daughter in April after the teenager got in trouble at school, according to reports. “I was just being a mom, a concerned parent and disciplining my daughter,” May told WOOD-TV. What began as discipline became a criminal matter after May’s ex-husband reported it to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and claimed she committed a crime. After the mom’s arrest in May, she was immediately released...

    The mysterious 11-day closure of a New Mexico solar observatory stemmed from an FBI investigation of a janitor suspected of using the facility's wireless internet service to send and receive child pornography, federal court documents showed on Wednesday. The National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico, was evacuated without public explanation on Sept. 6, leading to a swirl of social media speculation and rumors driven by its proximity to two U.S. military installations and the town of Roswell. Approximately two hours away from the observatory by car, Roswell was the site of a famous 1947 sighting of unidentified flying objects...

    Republican Pete Flores defeated Democrat Pete Gallego on Tuesday night in the special election runoff for Senate District 19, a major upset in a Democratic-friendly seat with implications for the balance of power in the upper chamber. With all precincts reporting, Flores beat Gallego by 6 percentage points in the race to replace convicted former state Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio. Flores had 53 percent of the vote and Gallego 47 percent in unofficial returns. Gallego conceded to Flores around 9 p.m., according to both campaigns. With the victory, Flores will become the first Hispanic Republican to serve in the...
