  • Help Request - Fact Checking Liberal Talking Points

    06/06/2020 5:21:11 PM PDT · by GraceMitchell · 53 replies
    My daughter used to be a conservative until she went to college. It has been less than a year, and she's now using liberal talking points in all her political debates with me. Yesterday she sent me an article titled "The Treason of the Ruling Class" by Chris Hedges (I can't link it here due to a FreeRepublic's restriction). I have made it my mission now to try to research and provide my daughter with facts because she doesn't get them from the websites that she's visiting. I have been reading FreeRepublic for years, but this is my first time...
  • Which U.S. states do you think has the most obedient citizens? Especially in a coronavirus lockdown.

    05/24/2020 5:55:12 PM PDT · by wanganghi · 34 replies
    So right now, our governors and mayors in my state, Hawaii have extended the lockdown twice. Originally, the lockdown was supposed to end on April 30, then extended to May 31, and now extended to June 30. Even though businesses are slowly opening in my state as months go by, some businesses will never come back, because of the government's orders or the business is doomed even before the lockdown happens. Schools are closed right now which means less "learning" time (if you know what I mean) for kids. Now, from my perspective, I believed that people in Hawaii in...

    GLENDORA, Calif. (KABC) -- Glendora police this week arrested and released a man for allegedly stealing cars and other property three times in the same day, blaming California's new zero-bail policy for their inability to keep the suspect behind bars. In early April, the California Judicial Council established a new policy setting bail at zero for most misdemeanor and low-level felonies to keep the jail population lower during the coronavirus crisis. As a result, Glendora police say, they were unable to keep a car theft suspect in custody, and ended up arresting him three times in the span of 12...

  • Two CDC Websites Give Vastly Different Coronavirus Death Tolls

    The Daily Wire ^ | May 2, 2020 | Ashe Schow
    ...The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) website for the coronavirus lists the total deaths from COVID-19 – the disease caused by the virus – as 37,308 in the United States. That’s a much lower number than what has been reported in the media or by other coronavirus trackers. For example, the Johns Hopkins University coronavirus tracker, lists the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. at 65,645. Even more confusing, a separate CDC website – dedicated exclusively to the novel coronavirus – lists the total COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. as 64,283. The NCHS website was updated on...

    More than 300 individuals showed up in about 150 cars to Friday’s noon “Freedom Drive” at the Ventura County Government Center asking, pleading and even demanding that Ventura County Re-Open for business, social, education and religious life. 70 cars started off from the County Govt center at noon on 4-24-20 at the VC Drive for Freedom. Many were already driving the streets in the area and were joined by more, totaling about 150 cars. The cars which at one point stretched nearly half-a-mile on Victoria Avenue, then onto Telephone Road, Thille St,. and south past Ralston, had American flags waving...
  • Ron Paul calls on Trump to fire Fauci because 'he's a fraud, doesn't give good information and is trying to have total control over the people'

    Ron Paul called on President Donald Trump's administration Thursday to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top coronavirus advisor, after he lowered the nation's death estimates for the coronavirus. The former Texas Republican representative accused Fauci of providing 'bad information' when he said Thursday that he expects about 60,000 people will die from the outbreak, down from 100,000 to 200,000, but only if social distancing continues and effectively slows the spread of the disease. Paul, speaking on his program, 'Ron Paul Liberty Report,' unleashed his criticism on Fauci, saying he was using the virus as an excuse to get 'total...
  • Ventilators Are No Panacea For Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients

    NPR ^ | April 2, 2020 | Jon Hamilton
    Most coronavirus patients who end up on ventilators go on to die, according to several small studies from the U.S., China and Europe. And many of the patients who continue to live can't be taken off the mechanical breathing machines. "It's very concerning to see how many patients who require ventilation do not make it out of the hospital," says Dr. Tiffany Osborn, a critical care specialist at Washington University in St. Louis who has been caring for coronavirus patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. That concern is echoed by Negin Hajizadeh, a pulmonary critical care doctor at the Donald and Barbara...

  • Meteorites hit earth 17 times a day, but no damage has been done!

    Cosmos Magazine ^ | Not Posted | Richard A. Lovett
    Scientists say that meteors hit earth 17 times a day. However, we don't even notice because these meteors are either too small or hit in uninhabited areas in the world. The reason that damages are unlikely and almost never occur from these daily impacts is that most of the world is uninhabited and no one is near the impact location to experience or report the impact and its location. However, the impacts that are recorded are often added to a list for scientists and enthusiasts to study. For example, a website called asteroid collision location map is a source that...
  • How Often do Meteorites Hit the Earth? More often that you think!

    Although major killer asteroids are extremely rare, minor asteroids called meteors often impact earth going unnoticed. Most of the time they burn up in the atmosphere. However, if they do not these smaller scale asteroids can weigh anywhere from 20 pounds to upwards of hundreds or thousands of pounds. Maybe even more! Fortunately, these smaller scale asteroids do not usually collide with highly populated areas and mainly impact the earths large swaths of uninhabited areas. Most of these collisions go unreported or unnoticed. However, reported collisions are usually added to a list. For example, a map simulation from an asteroid...
  • Large asteroid will sweep by earth in 2029, almost colliding

    A relatively large asteroid that would cause damage if it hit earth will undergo a near miss of earth, flying right by. There was earlier controversy as to whether the asteroid would hit, but now scientists say it won't hit. Previously a 1-40 chance of colliding. However, if the around 370 meter asteroid actually did hit earth in a high density area.. it would be a disaster. According to a simulation from an Asteroid Damage Simulator, the asteroid would cause hundreds of thousands of casualties and hundreds of buildings would collapse in range. Fortunately, this will not happen as the...

    From the early days of Iranian Revolution four decades ago, the Iranian regime has tried to spread its theocratic doctrine to the rest of the Middle East. The regime has, in the process, successfully made substantial number of Iraqi and Lebanese ‘civilians’ and ‘armed groups’ its core external support bases. The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who spearheads the regime, had maintained his charm among these external civilian and armed support bases for almost three and a half decade. However, the situation has been changing in the Middle East for last half a decade and the Iranian regime appears to...

    Sickening! Deep State Inspector General—This One Trying to Screw Veterans Democrats trying to kill successful VA healthcare...what would they do with yours? We all remember the Obama years when veterans were dying while waiting for healthcare at VA hospitals. Some lived so far away from treatment centers it would take them hours to get there and back. Bogus waiting lists were being presented while the real ones were buried in some bureaucrat’s desk drawer. The solution was a program Veteran’s Choice where disabled veterans were “allowed’ to seek treatment close to home. If they lived forty miles from a treatment...
  • Rush listeners, Operation Chaos 3 is a go. We can easily make sure the Dems stay divided the same way we did in 2008 and 2016!

    I’m guessing some of the Rush fans here already saw some of the trending tweets asking Rush to launch Operation Chaos 3 by telling his supporters to vote for Yang. In case you haven’t, here’s the idea. New Hampshire and several of the other upcoming states are open primary states (anyone there that is undeclared can go vote in the Dims primary). By getting a few thousand republicans to vote for the candidate that is most likely to pull voters from Bernie, we can prolong the primary and force the dems to waste their time and money attacking each other...

    Former Rep. Ron Paul said he wished President Trump would "flip-flop" his policy on Iran and criticized Trump's loyalty to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia. "I think our country is not doing so well. Our foreign policy is in shambles," the Texas Republican said. "Unfortunately, the one place where I wish he would flip-flop every once in a while or change his policy completely is dealing with Iran. He is steady on it, he said it on the campaign. He's very loyal to Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia." Trump authorized airstrikes that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and...
