    First of all, much to the dismay of many, I did not die tonight. Secondly, I've seen these funeral threads before where people mourn the FReeper and talk about what they meant to them (and more than a few FReepers who celebrate the death). But what's the point of that? Does the dead FReeper know anything, or see any of the kind or crass remarks about them? No. Pointless. We should have these sort of threads BEFORE they die. So that's why I'm doing my obituary thread tonight. Plus, there is the added advantage of me knowing the exact date...
  • 'It Was Extraordinary': Government Officials Were Stunned by 'Startling' Spike in Chinese Donations to UPenn After Biden Think Tank Opened

    The former chief investigator for the Department of Education said the agency noticed a "startling" spike in Chinese donations to the University of Pennsylvania after President Joe Biden opened his think tank at the school in 2017. "It was extraordinary," said Paul Moore, who served as the agency's chief investigative counsel during the Trump administration, in congressional testimony on Thursday. UPenn raked in over $100 million from China-based contributors between 2017 and 2022, the Washington Free Beacon reported earlier this year. This was a substantial increase from the four years prior to 2017, when the school received a total of...

    Scientists uncovered a hidden nine-meter long corridor near the main entrance to the Great Pyramid of Giza, officials said Thursday. The discovery was made as part of the Scan Pyramid project, which has been using non-invasive technology to study the structure since 2015, Reuters reported. Researchers used a mixture of infrared thermography, 3D simulations and endoscopes to explore inside of the structure, which is assumed to be 4,500-years-old (though the age of the Great Pyramid, and all others, is hotly contested). Mostafa Waziri, who heads Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, said the corridor was presumably created to help redistribute the...

    Amazing! The US open has been thrilling to watch, as this year the audience has been incredibly diverse. Serena’s last US open appearance, with Coco Gauff, Naomi Osaka and Francis Tiafoe’s first slam semi-final brought a new dimension to professional tennis as well as a raucous crowd. Today, two white guys, one Spanish and one Norwegian are vying in the finals for the trophy, unfortunately Tiafoe’s early exit ended the diversity.

    Justin Bieber has cancelled his Justice World Tour due to physical and mental health issues just weeks after resuming it as he recovered from facial paralysis. The 28-year-old Canadian superstar took to his Instagram Story to make the tough announcement as he thanked his fans for their support during his battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome and declared that he needs to focus on himself before performing again. He performed in Brazil over the weekend and got candid as he wrote: 'After getting off the stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realize that I need to make my health the priority...

    The pop sensation recently resumed his Justice World Tour after recovering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome.Justin Bieber took a moment during his concert in Trondeheim, Norway, on Sunday to speak out against racism and discrimination and plug the purpose of his 2021 album Justice. “So when we created the Justice album, we wanted to make an intentional moment,” the superstar said after greeting the screaming crowd. “A moment of unity, a moment of acceptance, a moment of belonging. In this world, there’s a lot of division, and what justice is, is for us to all come together. “We know that racism...

    We are in serious trouble in the United States of America. We have a mostly incoherent “president” that over half of America doesn’t believe was elected fairly. Joe Biden is likely taking orders from unelected people working behind the scenes with an agenda that is so evil that, if exposed by our dishonest media, would shock our nation to its core. 100 Percent Fed Up reports – On October 4, Barack Obama’s failed Supreme Court nominee turned Joe Biden’s Barack Obama’s Attorney General Merrick Garland sent a threatening note to warn parents of his plan to plant federal law enforcement...

    A few days ago, it appeared that someone had hacked their way into a few Free Republic accounts, then commenced to post ridiculous, often obscene posts. As a matter of caution, I logged out for a few days. However, since I have returned to the fray, I see articles by headline as before, but nothing shows any text as it usually does. Now, I'm under the Nancy Pelosi rules of expectation in that: I have to open the post to see what's in it. I can deal with it. At least I can read what's "Hot" with other posts, or...

    WizNerd | Today | WizNerd
    Double postings of items of interest are common. Most of the time, folks here do check before they post. If it is a newly reported item - once one has checked to make sure it is not posted - it takes time to make a new post. Some of us here are slower than others. Usually because we want to verify, clarify, and check the story over all. To those that are quick to jump with condemnation, please consider this, you are no better than the media that rush to publish a story without verification.

    by Joe Callen The Trump administration stunned Democrat lawmakers and immigration advocacy groups Wednesday, announcing it will waive federal contracting laws to greatly speed up construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. The Department of Homeland Security said waiving procurement regulations will allow 377 miles of new wall to be built far more quickly in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The 10 waived laws include requirements for having open competition, justifying selections and receiving all bonding from a contractor before any work can begin. By one estimate, the time to complete this huge section of wall could...

    GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCBD) – A deputy in Georgetown County was forced to use a taser on his own K-9 on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy responded to the scene of a reported burglary around 4:00 p.m. A cow near the scene distracted the dog which led to the dog biting the cow. To deescalate the situation, the deputy tased the dog. The cow was spooked and “struck the deputy and the property owner,” resulting in minor injuries, according to GCSO. The sheriff’s office said that the burglary call “proved to be unfounded.”

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court bench handed down a ruling Thursday approving the death penalty for people who comment on articles without reading them. In the highly publicized case, State of Texas v. Wilbur, state authorities had found internet user Edward Wilbur guilty of posting a comment on a story linked on his Facebook page, a news story Wilbur “had clearly never read.” While most of those convicted under Texas’ recent state law banning commenting on news stories or opinion pieces without reading them get off with a few months of community service or a stiff...
