  • This is how a woman reacted after breathing for the 1st time after her lung transplant

    <p>Jennifer Jones looks incredulously around her. She does understand what is going on; she seems to be in a trance. Lying on a bed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, surrounded by machines that keep her balanced and with wires going in and out of her body, she will experience something new. And she is nervous. For the first time, she can breathe on her own after a lung transplant surgery.</p>
  • Liberals Will NEVER Admit They Were Wrong on Trump-Russia 'Collusion'

    Think about all the things these liberal Democrats did, fully expecting Hillary to win, thus WE, the American people would never know... ever. Despite the fact there's been no evidence, let alone proof of even intention, the Trump campaign sought and/or utilized the awesome power of the Putin's Russian government to thwart Hillary's longtime political ambition, there will come a time when this will all be over. Many on the right are ready to hurl hundreds of thousands "We told you so" messages at the left and their media expecting them to issue acknowledgement they were wrong. You'd think we'd...

  • Why It Should Be Americans First?

    American Viewpoint ^ | February 10 | Chris McAllister
    The number of Democrats supporting the "Dreamers" - illegal immigrants brought here as children - will never admit/accept the fact that they are supporting criminals. Ignorance of a law does not exempt you from it. But then you have the fact that there are a number of people who do not seem to understand why there is such a growing sentiment to fix - I would actually say solve - the illegal immigration issue. I pulled these headlines from a single news source this morning. 33 pounds of fentanyl – enough to wipe out Massachusetts – seized in Boston
  • Trey Gowdy Pissed to Find 50 Agencies Are Investigating Fraud But Give No Punishment

    After 9/11, and not one American asked where the $30 billion in gold stolen was, or the missing $2.3 trillion the Pentagon didn’t find, theft of American taxdollars went up! Now the Pentagon can’t find over $ 9 trillion dollars and no one cares but Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy. Where would Americans be today if the theft of trillions from their nation never left? Congressman Trey Gowdy is upset that with countless agencies investigating waste, fraud, and abuse, there aren’t more criminal punishments. Trey Gowdy also asks about negligence, gross negligence, and criminal negligence numbers.

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 18 Feb 2018 | John Semmens
    In a proposal dubbed “America’s Harvest Box,” President Trump’s new budget calls for replacing half of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) vouchers with actual food for 80% of the program’s recipients. The “box” would contain allotments of shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit and vegetables. Democrats were quick to attack the plan. Michigan Sen Debbie Stabenow, the ranking Democrat on the agriculture committee, labeled it “not a serious proposal.” Rep Jim McGovern (D-Mass) called it “a cruel joke. It unfairly limits the choices of those dependent on the government for their living....

    On Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) stated that “some freedoms are going to have to be given up” to ensure unstable people don’t get weapons and that he will agree to act on gun control, but “not necessarily for normal people.” He also expressed uncertainty as to whether people should be allowed to own AR-15s and argued for making schools harder targets. Rooney said, “Well, we are one of the most open societies in the world. I think that each one of these heinous crimes raises the bar and makes us — compels that we, as a nation,...

    The Russians didn’t steal the election from Obama hand-picked protégé Hillary Clinton. But Crooked Hillary, almost single-handedly killed off the integrity and credibility of the FBI The bottom line on the FBI’s dramatic Friday dump indictment of a St. Petersburg-based “troll farm” and 13 Russian nationals: on the same day the indictments were revealed ‘someone’ in the FBI began leaking the news that special counsel Robert Mueller is still investigating “possible collusion” in the Trump camp. “Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his prosecutors haven’t concluded their investigation into whether President Donald Trump or any of his associates helped Russia interfere...

    Tragically, no one's children will be safe at school as long as things stay that way The particulars about protecting innocents from mass murder at schools, concerts, marathons etc. are not part of FBI training. The horrific Valentine’s Day massacre that took the lives of 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, leaving 14 more injured, proves it.

    We’re making progress. We’ve gone from a hysterical “Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election” to this, from Jerry Nadler: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack is continuing. And that our intelligence agencies tell us that it’s going to certainly continue through the next election. And...
  • [bleep] you, I like guns [puke alert....this is all over Facebook]

    <p>America, can we talk? Let’s just cut the shit for once and actually talk about what’s going on without blustering and pretending we’re actually doing a good job at adulting as a country right now. We’re not. We’re really screwing this whole society thing up, and we have to do better. We don’t have a choice. People are dying. At this rate, it’s not if your kids, or mine, are involved in a school shooting, it’s when. One of these happens every 60 hours on average in the US. If you think it can’t affect you, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. So let’s talk.</p>
  • Another Day of Electronic Warfare on Truth & the People

    As the world seems to become more chaotic and everyone wants to be the leader, nothing is right. Verbal attacks on key politicians and the loss of jobs by those who for years held positions and lived in corruption is taking its toll. Trump accused of mental competence, Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy stepping down, and truth being attacked at all levels. As for myself, I’m learning about what makes up the planet in which I live and those who strive to make it a better place, and those who only wish to enslave and destroy for greed and self gain....

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This past week saw the fake news media have what probably was its fakest week ever – which is saying an awful lot – and here a few of the highlights: The fake news media, lacking any other negative story on which to focus in order to avoid reporting on the massive, mushrooming scandal of corruption at DOJ and the FBI, spent the first several days of the week hammering the Rob Porter story. While Porter’s likely a wife-abusing turd who needed to be fired and needs to be punished, that hardly...

    “Out of the Water, into the Wilderness” (Mark 1:9-15) Today is the First Sunday in Lent, which means that the Holy Gospel is an account of the temptation of our Lord. Matthew, Mark, and Luke all record this episode that took place right after Jesus’ baptism. This year we hear from Mark, who tells it the most briefly. Just two verses, as follows: “The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.” Mark gets...

    Kelly Guthrie Raley was named “Teacher of the Year” at her Florida school, Eustis Middle School, for the 2017-2018 school year last month, according to Fox News. But now she’s being recognized for her cultural commentary following the tragic Florida school shooting. In a Facebook post that’s gone mega-viral, Ms. Raley analyzes American culture at-large and how it contributed to Wednesday’s shootings and other previous mass shootings. What did she say? Raley did not hold anything back. She wrote: Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for...
