  • Considering Relocation to Billings, Montana (Vanity)

    Free Republic ^ | 07.03.20 | Freedom56v2
    One of my children is considering a move to Billings to take advantage of a good career opportunity. However, no one in our family or circle of friends has been there. So I would really appreciate any input Freepers familiar with the area can provide! Thanks much :) *We have lived in Fargo and one of the kids lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota--may be some similarities for comparison....

    Kayleigh McEnany has nothing to do with this post but I figure readers would rather look at her than my botched attempt to make Donald John Trump look like Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke. As the president takes heat from Chicken Littles who whine about acting presidential, President Trump remains coolly presidential in handling two nation-paralyzing events simultaneously. In both cases, the president gave Democrats plenty of rope and watched them hang themselves. Governor Andrew Cuomo, D-Covid 19, started out as the dreamy Democrat alternative to President Trump. He ended up turning his state into Covid 19 Central, and...

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stated in an interview published Friday that she would have done a “better job” than President Trump in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “We wouldn’t have been able to stop the pandemic at our borders the way that Trump claimed in the beginning, but we sure could have done a better job saving lives, modeling better, more responsible behavior,” Clinton told the Hollywood Reporter when asked if she would have handled the “current moment of crisis” better than President Trump. “I don’t think we necessarily should have had as deep an economic assault on...

  • Court sentences 7 Iranian Christian converts to prison and financial penalty

    07/03/2020 11:41:03 AM PDT · by Irannewswire · 4 replies ^ | July,3,2020 | Iran News Wire
    A Revolutionary Court in southern Iran sentenced seven Iranian Christian converts to prison, exile, a financial penalty, and a ban on work and social activities. The Human Rights News Agency identified the Iranian Christian coverts as Habib Heidari, Sam Khosravi, Sasan Khosravi, Maryam Fallahi, Marjan Fallahi, Pouria Pima and Fatemeh Talebi. The seven men and women were sentenced by a Revolutionary Court in Bushehr on June 21 for “spreading propaganda against the state”. The “evidence” brought against them for their conviction was the possession of Christian books and symbols, holding home church sessions, and being in contact with Iranian “evangelists”...
  • Ted Cruz: “DOJ MUST Ensure” Ghislaine Maxwell Remains Among the Living

    Let’s make sure all those security cameras are actually turned on this time, hmmmm? – Texas Senator Ted Cruz laid down a bar for Attorney General William Barr and his people to meet in the case involving Ghislaine Maxwell this morning: Note the quotes Cruz places around the phrase “hang himself” – clearly communicating that he shares our skepticism about the official government story around the killing of Jeffrey Epstein while in federal custody last year. Keeping Maxwell safe likely will indeed be a challenge given that a convenient case of “COVID-19” has been added to the list of ways...

    VIDEO If someone humiliates himself by publicly voicing an absurd fantasy that of course does not come to pass, even if he is only semi-rational he will probably not set himself up again for another round of embarrassing humiliation with the very same wild fantasy. Apparently James Carville is perfectly willing to suffer such humiliation yet again by REPEATING himself on Morning Joe yesterday that Trump will probably not run in the general election. Perhaps James should prepare himself for election day with a bucket of eggs so he can yet again smash them on his face as he...

    ...That sound you hear is that of princes, politicians, and international party girls and playboys all shaking in their boots with the realization that a woman with everything to gain and nothing left to lose is in the custody of prosecutors who would love to hear her secrets. Maxwell spent decades as Epstein's girlfriend slash partner in crime. She stands accused of orchestrating the procurement of children to rape and traffic to their famous friends. A comprehensive case detailing what exactly Maxwell knows would probably require a book, not a news item, but it's worth evaluating just what she was...

    “The university ended the employment of Dr. Neal-Boylan on June 19 after 10 months in her role as dean of the Solomont School of Nursing. As with all such decisions, it was made in the best interest of the university and its students.” The cancel culture that is rampant on American college campuses right now has just claimed another victim. A nursing dean at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, has reportedly been fired after saying in an email that “everyone’s life matters.” Where does this end?

    In one of the most moving Hannity Shows ever, the father of a son slain in the CHOP zone in Seattle spoke out. It was a very emotional interview for Hannity and viewers who could see the pain the father felt after losing his son so senselessly. Hannity held one of his most riveting interviews of all time last night when he brought on his show the father of a teen slain in Seattle’s CHOP zone a few weeks ago. Hannity provided the father ample time to share his story and feelings about losing his son so senselessly. Horace...

    I came across the oddest thing yesterday: A group of conservative opinion/news sites engaged with an aggregator site that is raising money for Black Lives Matter. That aggregator site calls itself Mixi.Media, and at least pretends to be an aggregator specializing in promoting conservative viewpoints. It offers traffic-exchanging partnerships for blogs and websites that sign up and execute a reciprocal advertising agreement. If you go to Mixi.Media’s home page you will see that it looks like a typical news aggregator site, providing logos of its partners (and non-partners as well) and links to their articles. If you establish a login...

    Democratic strategist James Carville said there is a "significant chance" that President Donald Trump drops out of the race. In an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Thursday, Carville said the "Moscow Mitch" strategy to save the Senate will involve throwing Trump under the bus. JAMES CARVILLE: I think there is a significant chance he doesn't run. I mean, this thing is going so poorly. He's so far back. To me, it doesn't make much sense for him to run. (emphasis mine)

    I don’t try to keep up with the daily cascade of insanity from the Left. Even if you did nothing else, it would be impossible to catalog a fraction of it, let alone try to respond intelligently. I take it, though, that Democratic politicians if pressed might disassociate themselves from the wildest excesses of the Twitter mob, while at the same time never parting company in any important way with the nihilist, anti-American Left. Here is an instance, however, where deniability is impossible, because the lunatic is the Democrats’ nominee for New York’s 27th Congressional District, Nate McMurray–the same man...

    Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Despite the best efforts of the corrupt news media and its Democrat masters to keep the economy shut down, America had another blowout jobs month in June. The U.S. economy added 4.8 million new jobs during the month, again humiliating all the “experts” who had projected about 2.5 million would be added. That is almost 10 million net new jobs added during May and June, despite the best efforts by Democrat governors in big states like New York, California, Michigan and New Jersey to slow-play their reopenings. In total, 17.8 million American workers...

    Democrats, their liberal media, Never-Trump RINOs and Liz Cheney are very upset to hear Russia has been paying the Taliban to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan. They’re not doing a very good job. ** There were 22 US deaths in Afghanistan total in 2019. ** There have been 9 US deaths in Afghanistan so far this year. ** Compare that to the 496 deaths in 2010 and 412 deaths in 2011 under Obama!Facts matter.The Taliban also laughs at these latest reports. In a new report at The Daily Beast the Taliban admits Russia has been paying them for US...
  • The Man who Correctly Predicted President Trump’s 2016 Win Predicts President Trump has a 91% Chance of Being Reelected in 2020; His model has been correct since 1996

    Professor Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University told Lou Dobbs on August 16th, 2016, that Donald Trump had an 87% chance of winning the 2016 Presidential election. Professor Norpoth is a political science professor at Long IslandÂ’s Stoney Brook University.His model has been correct since 1996 on predicting the popular vote. We reported that his 2016 forecast rested on a model that tracks cyclical movements in American presidential elections. It goes back to 1828, when popular voting became widespread and the two-party system took hold. Over nearly two centuries, American presidential elections have exhibited a distinct cycle. This is...
