    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of ‘group-think’), but,...

    Mitt, I voted for you but alas ..... read the internet. By clothing your vote to remove Trump from office in our shared religion and even God himself, you have painted all LDS people as petty and anti-conservative. By voting for this highly partisan presidential removal and ignoring the corruption which it grew from, you have effectively 'strained at a gnat and swallowed a camel'. As the highest profile member of our church, people now associate your documented anti-Trump bias with anti-american/anti-conservative bias and consequently our church. Enjoy your moment of being toasted in the 'Tall and Spacious Building' in...
  • Romney says he had to follow 'conscience' on vote to convict Trump, expects enormous consequences

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told Fox News' Chris Wallace Wednesday in an exclusive interview that he "had to follow my conscience" in deciding to vote to convict President Trump on abuse of power, a decision that's likely to lead to serious blowback from Trump and others in the Republican Party. "I believe that the act he took, an effort to corrupt an election is as destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine," Romney said. "It is a high crime and misdemeanor within the meaning of the Constitution, and that is not a...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | January 31, 2020 | Caitlin Yilek
    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney is not keen on President Trumps attacks on impeachment witnesses, but conceded that the insults are working. He has made a career of trashing people by tweet, Romney, 72, told the New York Times. It is part of his shtick and its working for him, the Utah senator said of Trumps attacks on his former national security adviser John Bolton. I think its unfortunate.
  • Under Trump, the deficit has ballooned, exploding a GOP myth

    cnn ^ | 08/24/2019 | Julian Zelizer
    (CNN)The Congressional Budget Office has predicted the federal deficit could reach $1 trillion by the 2020 fiscal year. Once again, President Trump has exposed a myth in American politics. That myth? That Republicans are the party of fiscal responsibility. He is just the latest Republican president to demonstrate this. His drive for corporate tax cuts, which received strong Republican support, has blown a huge hole in the federal ledger. Tea Party Republicans once railed against President Barack Obama's spending habits. As the deficit has grown under Trump, however, they've suddenly changed their tune. Acting Chief of Staff and Office of...

    Instructors at a prominent university in Australia have been warned not to lecture on the natural historical record of that country; instead, they should teach a creation narrative regarding the origin of indigenous Australian people. Lecturers at the University of New South Wales have been warned off making the familiar statement in class that Aboriginal people have been in Australia for 40,000 years, The Australian reports.

    Myths usually sound fascinating. Myths are things that never happened, stories that aren’t true, though often we wish they were, for various reasons.As a young boy, I wanted to know if Big Foot was an actual animal. I saw almost every documentary that claimed to show evidence of Big Foot’s existence. And don’t get me started on flying saucers.Despite its place in popular Internet theory, most people—including me—consider Big Foot continue a myth. No hiker walks out into the woods looking for Big Foot.Unfortunately, some myths come camouflaged as truths. They do so for many reasons and aided by the...

    Foreign Policy ^ | August 29, 2018, 5:42 PM | Halil Karaveli
    This month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan intimated that his country might consider leaving NATO. Meanwhile, on a visit to Moscow last week, Turkeys foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu referred to Russia as a strategic partnera first. This talk is empty. Erdogan may well be angry at Washington, but ultimately, Ankara is going to have to do whatever it takes to restore its ties with the West. Doing so might not be enough to pull the country out of its economic crisis, but Erdogan has few other options if he wants to avoid a potentially worse political meltdown: He depends too...

    A complete lack of intellectual diversity on most college campuses around America For 20 years or so, I had the good fortune of being a college professor. I started out as an adjunct instructor in 1996 teaching in an evening adult education program for a prominent Colorado private university. From that humble beginning, I eventually found myself, at various stages of my academic career, an assistant professor, a department chair, a center director, a tenured full professor and a dean. I plied my wares on many campuses and in various modalities, but for the most part I took my turn...
  • White Privilege in a White Coat: How Racism Shaped my Medical Education

    Annals of Family Medicine ^ | May 14, 2018 | Max J. Romano, MD, MPH
    In this essay, I reflect on some of the ways racial privilege influenced my experience as a white physician in training. While white Americans often think of racism as a social construct primarily affecting people of color, racism is a system of both racial disadvantage as well as reciprocal racial advantage. Medical professionals are increasingly aware of how social determinants of health lead to important health disparities, however white physicians seldom ask how their own racial privilege reinforces a white supremacist culture and what effects this may have on our patients health. Drawing attention to the powerful legacy of racial...

    It's Like Comparing Bullets and Blanks Comparing the crowd size of the anti-gun rally at Washington D.C. with the crowd size at President Trumps inauguration is like comparing apples and oranges, or perhaps more apropos, bullets and blanks. It is even more outrageous than the misleading comparisons between the inaugurations of President Obama and Trump that I wrote about in the Canada Free Press, Response to Claim That More Women Protested [at the womens rally the day after President Trumps inauguration] Than People Attended the Inauguration, Jan. 23, 2017 (which includes a large section contrasting the Obama and Trump inauguration...

    I'm getting into this debate more and more with people and getting nowhere. They're saying the parties somehow "flipped" and say the Republicans were previously the racist democrat party of KKK, Slavery and Jim Crow. I contest that the Republican principals were the same under Lincoln as they are today. Also, voters from the South let go of their ties to the racist Democrats and starting voting for Republicans. I'm looking for facts starting from Teddy Roosevelt, to WW, Coolidge, FDR and through the late 1960's...A lot of you on here are historians and I value your input. I believe...

    More than 15,000 scientists around the world have issued a global warning: there needs to be change in order to save Earth. It comes 25 years after the first notice in 1992 when a mere 1,500 scientists issued a similar warning. This new cautioning which gained popularity on Twitter with #ScientistsWarningToHumanity garnered more than 15,000 signatures. William Ripple of Oregon State University's College of Forestry, who started the campaign, said that he came across the 1992 warning last February, and noticed that this year happened to mark the 25th anniversary. Together with his graduate student, Christopher Wolf, he...

    Every time a mass shooting occurseither carried out or attemptedthere is one of two outcomes. If the perpetrator is non-white, then it disappears from view. If the perpetrator is white, then it is used to indicted whites as being more violent than any other group. For instance, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting this became the talk of the internet: .. We need not focus on the fact that the author is a D-list actor with no life experience outside the world make believe to recognize the raw bigotry and, dare I say, self-hatred involved in this tweet....

    IBD ^ | 05/24/2017
    Big Government: President Trump's budget is taking its share of hits for supposedly indulging in fanciful accounting, unrealistic assumptions and proposing massive cuts to vital safety-net programs. How much of that is true? You decide. Trump's budget plan proposes to balance the federal budget in 10 years and do so entirely through spending restraint. That alone is enough to raise the hackles of the Washington, D.C., swamp creatures. But critics have other complaints. The main ones: It relies on unrealistic economic projections. Critics say Trump's budget numbers rest on a rosy scenario of future economic growth. The New York Times...

    Conservative Review ^ | 1/29/17 | Daniel Horowitz
    There is a lot of confusion swirling around the events that transpired this weekend as a result of Trumps executive order on immigration. Make no mistake: every word of Trumps executive order is in accordance with statute. Its important not to conflate political arguments with legal arguments, as many liberals and far too many conservatives on social media are doing. While the timing and coordination of implementing this order might have been poorly planned, we shouldnt allow that to undermine the broader need to defend our sovereignty. For courts to violate years worth of precedent and steal our sovereignty should...
