    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 12/12/2017 | J Hines
    A judge on Dec. 8 released graphic video showing Daniel Shaver crawling on his hands and knees and begging for his life before he was shot and killed. The shooting, by Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, then an officer with the Mesa Police Department, occurred after officers responded to a call about a man allegedly pointing a rifle out of a fifth-floor window at a La Quinta Inn. The graphic video, which was released after a jury on Thursday acquitted the officer of murder and manslaughter charges, stoked outrage on social media and renewed calls for reforms in law enforcement. See the...

    The commie Left has TOTALLY overplayed its hand on this "sexual harasser" circus. They've FLOODED us with this crap, nonstop, and we're SICK to the gills of it. We knew from the start where this was intended to go: our President. We knew from the start it wouldn't stick to him, but NOW we REALLY know it, because they've also made us sick of it with their too-stupid-by-double scheme. WAY TO GO, GOD-HATING COMMIES! MAGA, baby! Give to Free Republic!

    Politico ^ | 12/11/17 | KYLE CHENEY
    A former business associate of Michael Flynn told lawmakers that phone records contradict an anonymous whistleblower's allegation that the ex-national security adviser sent an Inauguration Day text declaring a controversial Middle East nuclear energy deal "good to go," according to a letter released Monday. In an account provided to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) in June — but made public only last week — the whistleblower said Alex Copson, a top official at ACU Strategic Partners, bragged on Inauguration Day about his relationship with Flynn, at one point flipping around his phone to reveal the text about the deal to build...

Early Friday morning, two would-be robbers broke into Korean War veteran Don Lutz’s home in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. Lutz recounted that he woke up Friday morning at about 1:15 a.m.However, no sooner had they entered the house than they were met by Lutz and a handgun that he normally keeps under his pillow. Lutz says that he fired a shot in the dark and he and one of the men got into a...
  • 10 Things Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask On a First Date

    Everyday Feminism ^ | December 8, 2017 | Lara Witt
    As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political. Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone.

    Who were your ancestors? What is your ethnic background composed of? Sites like Ancestry.com and 23andme have always been some go to sources in answering all of your toughest questions. But how accurate are they? In a recent interview with Cracked, one of the major ancestry testing companies, (which specific company is unknown) spilled the beans on what really happens when you purchase an ancestry kit. While I can’t say I’m surprised, you may be shocked to learn that these ancestry sites aren’t always as accurate as they claim to be. Beyond this, they’ve also admitted to tampering with the...

One drone can kill one specific person. A big group of drones can kill a large number of specific people, or an entire city for that matter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CO6M2HsoIA

    New Honda Accord a major step backwards - and that's a good thing!By Jim BrayTechnoFile.comIt may not be back completely but, as evidenced by the newly redesigned 2018 Honda Accord, it looks as if the honoured Japanese carmaker is back on track. Or at least well on the way.I've been particularly vociferous about my Honda angst in recent years. The company makes terrific cars - and they still do, for the most part - but somewhere along the way between adding all the new drivers' aids and pursuing ever more strict fuel economy mandates the company seemed to lose its...

    This plane passed over my house today. It flew low and looks like an old time plane. I'm thinking it has something to do with Pearl Harbor Day? I heard it as it passed over, flying pretty low. Had an old time motor sound and so I ran out to see what kind of plane it was, bringing my camera as I did. Snapped the shot as it was flying over my neighbors yard. Wish I had caught it over my own yard, would've been a better shot. Anyway going to ask if anyone out there recognizes this type of...

    I have not been able to get YouTube to work since Sunday. I have posted this question on Facebook, and some say they can get YT on their phones, others have said they have gotten the site to work after rebooting by disconnecting their modems for about 30 seconds. None of these have worked for me. The site, isitdownrightnow.com has been pinging the site several times a day, apparently without success. It has this statement posted: We have tried pinging Youtube website using our server and the website returned the above results. If youtube.com is down for us too there...
  • Boxer vs Wrestler

    12/06/2017 8:15:50 AM PST · by w1n1 · 20 replies
    Taking a break from gun stuff, lets talk about pugilist sports. Before UFC and MMA was conceived the debate of a boxer vs a wrestler have been talked about for a long time. Fight fans from boxing and wrestling have always talked about pitting their favorite athletes against the other. Even thugs out on the streets corner would talk about how a good old right cross would take out any wrestler. On the other side a powerful suplex would rock the boxers world. In the past there were promotions at the sports professional level to settle this debate, however, most...

  • GOP’s corporate tax cut will be a ‘boom’ for the economy

    The Blaze ^ | December 4, 2017 | Glenn Beck
    One of the most important provisions in the GOP’s plan for a tax overhaul is a big cut to the corporate tax rate. The legislation would slash the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent. “That is huge,” Glenn said on today’s show. “If Trump signs this into law … you’ll see a boom to the economy.” The bill passed in the Senate on Friday and next needs to return to the House for a vote. Republicans are under pressure to merge the Senate and House’s respective plans for tax reform before the end of the year.

    Illinois Review ^ | December 4, 2017 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    On December 3, President Trump issued an interesting tweet… not terribly unusual for him, as that’s how he communicates with the American people. Just as Ronald Reagan was famous for “going over the heads of the press and speaking directly to the people,” Donald Trump uses today’s technology to accomplish the same end. As a result, he is better able to command the political narrative than most Republican presidents (Democrats don’t need to find such methods, since the press has long acted as Democrat presidents’ house organ). In this particular tweet, President Trump said that the FBI’s “reputation is in...
