  • Now We’ve Got Them Right Where We Want Them

    Like many Americans, I’ve been in a funk since last November. Now it’s time to shake it off and re-engage. George Washington presided over a series of lost battles and tactical retreats during the American revolution. But each battle (regardless of outcome) weakened the enemy, and led to eventual freedom from monarchical rule. The ruling class has taken an election, but they’ve substantially weakened their position in doing so.
  • Larry Schweikart: Much different perspective than many on our side have...but for first time in years these people fear us

    Much different perspective than what many on our side have from yesterday, and certainly nothing that you'll hear from Hoax News. But I had a call from a friend in the movement. This is his perspective, but I tend to agree with it. He saw yesterday as a victory of sorts. Yes, Trump lost, but that was expected to most of us. What was not expected was that antifa or not, patriot's or not, a relative handful of people sent the elite spudgebudgers screeching like children, running for their basement. The very people that last summer had claimed Trump was...

    It’s just the flu, bro. We need to change the narrative. Right now the compassionate person is the one who wears a mask at all times and social distances. This is their act of charity to help keep grandma alive and help to avoid the spread of the “deadly” Coronavirus plague. The narrative above is terrible for those who love freedom. So I will refer back to yesterday’s thread for a narrative that properly paints the Flubros and Flubras as altruistic, which we are. Items below sum up the Flubro narrative and counters the covidiots. 1. When I refuse to...

    It’s just the flu, bro. https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3909872/posts Nice to see Supreme Court success at removing restrictions on religious institutions in NY. - Freepers keep coming here saying it is more than the flu. This is NOT more than the flu. Even if we accept the fake death tolls then this is not more than the WWI Spanish flu and on par with the Asian and Hong Kong flus of 1957 and 1968. Additionally, if you consider human years lost then this is very mild as it doesn’t really kill young healthy people. I repeat - this is not more than the...
  • Politico Spins Biden Campaign Slowdown as 'Flips Script on Trump'

    Newsbusters ^ | October 27, 2020 | P.J. Gladnick
    In rational times, the idea of a major presidential campaign grinding almost to a halt in the final week before an election would be considered as an example of a collapse or at least a major cause of concern over that candidate. This would apply doubly if that candidate's physical and mental stamina had been questioned. However, in the bizarro world of the 2020 campaign, this is being hilariously spun by Politico as a brilliant move on the part of the Joe Biden campaign. Yes, no cause for concern at all. In fact, according to Politico this campaign slowdown just...
  • Trump, twice tested negative for COVID-19, says he may take drug cocktail to treat coronavirus

    President Trump on Saturday said he might personally take a drug cocktail he has talked up as a potential treatment for COVID-19 patients, though he has twice tested negative for the virus. “I may take it, OK? I’ll have to ask my doctors about that, but I may take it,” Mr. Trump said at the White House. The president has talked up the potential for hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug, in combination with other antibiotics, to treat people suffering from the coronavirus.

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has captured the biggest prize of the Super Tuesday primaries with a first-place finish in California, the Associated Press projects. Sanders’ west coast win comes as a big relief to the New England senator who lost a majority of the Super Tuesday contest states to former Vice President Joe Biden, who swept the southern primaries with big wins in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Biden has also been declared the winner in Minnesota and Massachusetts, two states where Biden had no presence, while Sanders has only been projected to win Utah, Colorado, and...
  • The experimental demonstration of a spin quantum heat engine

    Phys.org ^ | 12/30/2019 | Ingrid Fadelli ,
    The theoretical notion of a 'quantum heat engine' has been around for several decades. It was first introduced around sixty years ago by Scovil and Schulz-DuBois, two physicists at Bell Labs who drew an analogy between three-level masers and thermal machines. In the years that followed, other researchers have developed a variety of theories building on the ideas of Scovil and Schulz-DuBois, introducing proposals of thermodynamic cycles at the quantum scale. Very recently, physicists have started testing some of these theories in experimental settings. One of these experiments was carried out by a team of researchers at the University of...

    Washington Post ^ | 12/02/19 | Devlin Barrett, Karoun Demirjian
    Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter. The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the...

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department’s inspector general found no evidence that the F.B.I. attempted to place undercover agents or informants inside Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016 as agents investigated whether his associates conspired with Russia's election interference operation, people familiar with a draft of the inspector general’s report said.

    When it comes to criticizing the press, William Donohue is what he is. The president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights has never used a flyswatter when a baseball bat will do. This time, Donohue has released a statement about a USA Today story that had already caught my attention, one that ran with this headline: “The Catholic Church and Boy Scouts are lobbying against child abuse statutes. This is their playbook.” This feature is yet another cheap-shot attack that buries or blurs crucial information that readers need in order to understand this complex subject. How? Here...

    Jussie Smollett has sold his San Fernando Valley view home in the foothills above Studio City, Calif., to a non-famous couple in a clandestine off-market deal valued at $1.655 million. Unfortunately for the legally beleaguered former “Empire” star, fired in the wake of a controversially dismissed, 16-count felony indictment brought for allegedly staging a fake hate crime with him as the victim, didn’t have much luck on the real estate merry-go-round. Not counting carrying costs, improvement expenses and real estate fees, Smollett took a $30,000 loss on the hillside contemporary bungalow that, as was sussed out by the Blast, he...

    When the Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee in summer 2016, one of the crown jewels obtained by Vladimir Putin’s team was the party’s opposition research files on then-GOP candidate Donald Trump. It was quite a blow to the DNC, because political parties usually guard their research zealously, hoping to use it with the news media and political commercials to help ding their political rivals without leaving fingerprints. But the Democratic Party committee that helps elects candidates to U.S. House seats has exposed scores of its own opposition research files on GOP candidates, past and present, on the internet. They...

    Can Democrats find a silver lining in the massive dark cloud cast on them by Robert Mueller? Gary Meltz, a Democratic strategist in the Beltway, argues at Fox News that the Mueller report might boost Democrats more than Donald Trump in next year’s election. It will finally convince enough Democrats to stop looking to shortcut Trump and focus on beating him in the election, Meltz believes.Well, maybe, but that’s not the only reality with which Democrats need to get in touch: Democrats across the country are shell-shocked after learning that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report found no collusion between...

    A far-right conservative website was reportedly tipped off about the racist photo on Gov. Ralph Northam's medical school yearbook page by one of his former classmates. A source from Big League Politics told the Washington Post the individual reached out because of "anger" over Northam's recent comments about a bill that would loosen restrictions on abortions. “The revelations about Ralph Northam’s racist past were absolutely driven by his medical school classmate’s anger over his recent very public support for infanticide,” the unnamed source said. Northam, a former pediatric neurologist, has faced a barrage of criticism for an interview he did...

    But the Covington story isn’t just a run-of-the-mill incident of viral outrage. It involved MAGA-hat-wearing teens and Native American activists. Those who shared the video in those first 24 hours, including many conservatives, seemed to feel it was emblematic of the vitriol and racism that drives the worst of American culture. But when new details shifted the story into more ambiguous territory, a well-oiled machine of pro-Trump personalities and sites saw an opportunity to strike. For the students and their defenders, attempts by the media to complicate the narrative of the first viral video came too late. Online vigilantes had...

    President Trump's personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, claimed Wednesday night that he "never said there was no collusion" between members of President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian officials -- but he did say that Trump himself never colluded with Russian officials. The former New York City mayor also said on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" that "if the collusion happened, it happened a long time ago. It's either provable or it's not. It is not provable because it never happened ... I'm telling you there's no chance it happened." Trump previously denied any member of his campaign conspired with Russian officials....

    The Department of Justice’s inspector general has determined that former FBI Director James Comey was “insubordinate” at times during his tenure, ABC News reported Wednesday. Sources told ABC that the inspector general’s draft report on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State outlines instances of Comey defying authority. The draft report, which is subject to change, also reportedly criticized former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s handling of the probe into Clinton’s email use. Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers last month that a draft of the report was completed. The...

    Bias can be detected by what the media report and choose not to report. When it comes to Pope Francis, bias by omission is the most common ideological practice. Earlier this month, the pope met with an alleged Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse, Juan Carlos Cruz; he is a homosexual. According to Cruz, the pope said to him, “It doesn't matter [whether you are a homosexual]. God made you like this. God loves you like this.” The Vatican refuses to comment on whether this is an accurate account. Last week, the pope met with the Italian Bishops' Conference. When...

    Rep. Ryan Costello (R-Pa.) said that he is leaving Congress in part because all he is ever asked about is President Trump, according to CNN. "No matter what I say or do, I feel all I do is answer questions about Donald Trump rather than health insurance or tax policy," Costello told CNN. Costello announced in March that he would not run for reelection, blaming the partisan political environment, including the actions of Trump. "I feel, increasingly, that if you're a member of Congress, they assume that you're not good," Costello told CNN. "They assume that you're not telling the...
