    Ron DeSantis says he co-opted the MAGA agenda in 2018 to get elected as Governor of Florida.Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told reporter John Stossel in a recent interview that his famous 2018 “build the wall” campaign ad backing President Trump and the construction of a wall on America’s southern border was a “satirical” publicity stunt meant to feign support for the MAGA movement and manipulate the anti-Trump media into playing the ad on TV, giving his campaign more recognition among voters.John Stossel interviewed Ron DeSantis ahead of his official presidential campaign announcement and asked him about his famous 2018 gubernatorial...

    KYIV. April 25 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he would wish to follow a diplomatic path to resolve the military standoff between Ukraine and Russia. "I want to stop the war and put an end to it. There is a diplomatic path and a military one. Any healthy person always chooses a diplomatic path because they know that, even if it's difficult, it could prevent the loss of thousands or tens of thousands" lives, Zelensky said at a press conference in Kyiv on Saturday. "And any leader, whether he wants it personally or not, has no right...

    The people of Pennsylvania showed up to greet the installed occupant of the White House, Joe Biden, upon his arrival in Pennsylvania – which he calls his home state. The illegitimate office holder was scheduled to speak at Mack Truck Plant in Macungie, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately for those who are attempting to manage the White House, the jeers, boos and middle finger salutes from the crowd was not exactly what they were looking for. WATCH:
  • Rachel Dolezal is not only a liar and a poseur but a fine art plagiarist

    Among the works by her exhibited at ArtPal is a painting with the title “The Shape of Our Kind,” ... A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

    "Mother Nature ... is screaming at us about" climate change, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told the crowd at the opening event of Climate Week NYC 2014. While Kerry used a more measured tone than that which he attributed to Mother Nature, the apocalyptic nature of his warnings were in keeping with her purported sentiment. Using projections that appear hyperbolic, even compared to the worst case scenarios presented in the latest United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, Kerry said that "we’re on track to warm at at least 4 degrees over the course of the next...

    One evening in March, during a visit to Italy, President Obama asked the U.S. ambassador to round up a bunch of—and I quote—“interesting Italians” for a dinner at the ambassadorial residence. The history of the property, the Villa Taverna, goes as far back as the tenth century. Its art collection includes Roman sarcophagi and centuries-old imperial busts. The menu that evening included a variety of pastas, and wines from Tuscany and the regions around Venice. Dinner lasted four hours. In this sumptuous and Baroque setting, amid these beautiful artifacts of long-gone civilizations, enjoying the finest foods and most delicate wines,...

    President Bill Clinton has been telling everyone he is a vegan since 2009, but it turns out Clinton’s a liar. The former president, who has been enlisted to sell the nation on Obamacare, told reporters that he was joining his daughter, Chelsea, in an all vegan diet after he had had heart trouble. He was even named PETA’s person of the year in 2010.

    TORONTO - Lost: One gold chain witnesses at a downtown Toronto nightclub said belongs to pop star Justin Bieber. Bieber was allegedly rushed by someone — possibly an overeager fan — on the dance floor at a downtown Toronto nightclub early Saturday around 3 a.m., when he left a designated VIP area. Joallore Alon, 40, said he was at Uniun Nightclub on Adelaide St. W., near Portland St., when Bieber and his entourage showed up around 2 a.m. “From the back entrance, they came in and stayed for a bit,” Alon said Saturday evening. “He took off his shirt and...

    It seems like people want credit for being heroes-- even when they are far from it. Now that Osama bin Laden has met his end at the hands of Navy SEALs, there are many that want to jump on the bandwagon. One case is a pastor from Pennsylvania, Jim Moats, who has been telling his congregation for five years that he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam: Apparently at least part was based on Steven Seagal's 1992 film Under Seige: Among other things, Moats said he was subjected to waterboarding when he trained at Little Creek Amphibious Base in Virginia...

    He looks like a soldier. He says he's a soldier. But he's not a soldier. And now he is facing charges for lying about his resume. When we started asking questions, so did the FBI. The man, who the FBI says is nothing but a fraud, even showed up in a military uniform at Houston Mayor Annise Parker's inauguration. The problem is that he didn't earn any of the medals he was wearing. Michael Patrick McManus was arrested Friday night after a federal judge signed a warrant for his arrest. The FBI says he was arrested without incident.

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney ruffled a good many elitist feathers recently when he accused the president of pretending that America is not at war. Cheney’s words were immediately challenged by the same fellow who took three days to make a public statement about the terrorist incident on Flight 253 this Christmas Day. So which one is right? Is Cheney overstating the situation, or is President Obama in denial? It may be the latter, considering other similar positions taken by President Obama. Namely: * Islam is a religion of peace: 9.11, the Fort Hood slaughters, and Flight 253 are but...

    What does the bill, HR 3200, short-titled ‘‘America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009,” actually say about major health care issues? I here pose a few questions in no particular order, citing relevant passages and offering a brief evaluation after each set of passages. This bill is 1017 pages long. It is knee-deep in legalese and references to other federal regulations and laws. I have only touched pieces of the bill here. For instance, I have not considered the establishment of (1) “Health Choices Commissio0ner” (Section 141); (2) a “Health Insurance Exchange,” (Section 201), basically a government run insurance scheme...

    I am leaving Free Republic. After I post this message I will not come back and most likely ask the moderator to remove my account. You may ask why. Today I posted a copy of a letter I received from an anti-terrorism officer in the United States Air Force. It was received through official channels but was not classified or top secret and I was granted permission to share it. It was an article concerning the possibility of a terrorist attack on American soil and it was pulled because, and I quote "Proven incorrect on snopes." This is one time...

    Isn't it time for him to go home yet? It is good, in theory, that the new President of the United States is taking so much time to tour Europe. He arrived in London last Tuesday, has been to Strasbourg, Prague yesterday and now he's off to Turkey. It shows, I suppose, that he cares about the outside world and that is 'A Good Thing'. But his long stay means that we are hearing rather a lot from him, way too much in fact. His speeches have long under-delivered, usually leaving a faintly empty sensation in this listener even though...

    While marking the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth last night in Springfield Ill., President Barack Obama made light of Sen. Judd Gregg's decision yesterday to withdraw his nomination as commerce secretary. "In 1854, Lincoln was simply a Springfield lawyer who'd served just a single term in Congress," Mr. Obama told the approximately 900 guests at the 102nd Abraham Lincoln Association Banquet. "Possibly in his law office, his feet on a cluttered desk, his sons playing around him, his clothes a bit too small to fit his uncommon frame, maybe wondering if somebody might call him up and ask him...
