  • Laura Ingraham: Is She Mailing It In?

    I love Laura Ingraham. Love her. I'd propose marriage to her if I wasn't already married to The Love of My Life. But since starting her TV show on FNC on October 30, the quality of her radio show has gone straight downhill. Is she burning the candle too much at both ends? A taped TV show tonight (even Shannon Bream is live) and she left her 3-hour radio show today at the 2-hour mark. She did take one hilarious caller, the lady who described the beer can in the turkey's butt. Anyone have a tape of that call? Priceless....
  • FLASHBACK: Mike Pence won't dine alone with a woman who's not his wife. Is that sexist?

    11/21/2017 7:11:25 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 66 replies
    Last week, the Washington Post profiled second lady Karen Pence, a devout Christian and devoted wife who is, as the story put it, her husband’s “prayer warrior,” “gut check” and “shield.” Ashley Parker, the reporter, noted that Vice President Mike Pence once had told The Hill, a political newspaper and website, that he never dines with women alone, nor does he attend functions without his wife if alcohol is being served. This tidbit popped off the page like a spark from a burning log. Twitter, which is always highly combustible, exploded. Was this a sign of marital devotion and respect?...
  • (vanity) Should the Clinton National Airport Be Renamed?

    11/19/2017 9:49:11 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 26 replies
    Now that Democrats admit Bill Clinton should have stepped down and he was a sex abuser (all women are to be believed) isn't keeping this name triggering? Victims of sexual assault are being forced to fly into an airport named for a sex abuser? Even seeing it listed as a flight destination is offensive. Can we start a movement to rename it #ME TOO Airport?
  • Vanity: Mitch McConnell: Release the Hounds!

    We know what's going on. And they know we know what's going on. This is a power struggle. This is the ruling oligarchy against the people. They cannot abide anybody THEY don't approve of getting into their precious Senate. For the Senate is their bulwark against conservatism. But their bulwark is weakening, and their minions' influence is waning. "We know who have abused us...but the time is coming when they shall lick the dust, and melt away." - Sam Adams
  • Video Of Vikings Standing In Respect To Anthem circa 1973

    11/19/2017 8:42:11 AM PST · by OneVike · 33 replies
    In this video, you will see the Minnesota Vikings standing at attention and the fans all singing the national anthem. It was Dec 1973, and the Vikings were set to play the Cowboys for the NFC Championship. The Vikings would win and go on to their 2 Superbowl where they lost to the Miami Dolphins. Grant always had the Viings doing this, from the first day he took over as coach in 1967. As for Kaepernick, back in April, Bud Grant didn’t mince words when asked about his actions. “He’s trash,’’ said Grant. “But this is a free country....

    One thing we can all take comfort in is that their best days are behind them and the Fox/Newscorp brand is in the process of being utterly decimated. And the trajectory is downward, sharply so. Cord-cutting was already happening at an impressive pace before the NFL debacle - which FOX is heavily invested in Lots more cord-cutting, and lots of Murdoch properties losing money and influence badly. Almost nobody reading their periodicals. Their target audience has seemingly become solely well connected swamp-dwellers residing in the DC-NY corridor, the rest of you can go f--- yourselves. They want to be the...

    Just do it, Mitch. Prove your outrage over the allegations against Roy Moore isn't just political opportunism to reject a conservative you don't like. Apply your newfound sense of outrage to anyone in the Senate accused of harassment. Plus, think of the money we'd save since the taxpayers are currently on the hook for harassment settlements.

    Many have talked about the year book, but has anyone else noticed how the area I circled with Moore's last name and is blue ink. The rest is in black ink. Now if you look at it, you can see clearly that someone named Roy signed her year book originally. Roy Moore's last name and all were added later by someone else to make it look like he signed it. Also, it was over 40 years ago since I have been in school, but the way they put out year books has not changed much. Other than it is...

  • Sexual Harassment Accusations Are a Tool Used By Globalists Elites To Destroy Their Opponents

    11/14/2017 7:08:25 AM PST · by pinochet · 19 replies
    Over the past 8 decades, numerous accusations of sexual misconduct have been made against powerful Americans in tabloid publications that have a small circulation. Most of those accusations have been ignored by mainstream media organizations. The people accused of sexual misconduct include Presidents, Senators, Governors, Congressmen, Mayors, Corporate CEOs, Billionaires, Heads of Hollywood Studios, major actors, etc. Whenever sexual harassment allegations are made in the mainstream media, the target is a person who is opposed to globalism or has worked against the interests of the globalists. The Globalist media covered up for JFK and LBJ when they were alive, and...

    Seems like a day doesn't go by without another woman accusing some guy of sexually harassing her. Most of the accusations are from incidents that took place so long ago that there is no way to prove or disprove the accusation. The stories are about men from all walks of life, and both sides of the political spectrum. From Hollywood to Congress, women are telling stories about how men they worked for, or with, treating them like sex toys. Older men being accused of forcing themselves upon young women and teen girls some ten, fifteen and even as long...

  • Guilty, Especially If Proven Innocent

    Mitt Romney ^ | 11/11/2017 | By Laz A. Mataz
    It read like something straight out of "The Onion". "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections."So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans.This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing Conservatives.Right now,...
  • Escheatment of personal property

    My wife and I have an account with one of the large mutual fund companies. We were just informed that the state is getting ready to seize the account because it is considered abandoned. We have had the fund for about 12 years with the dividends and capital gains automatically deposited in our bank account. After calling the fund we were told that even though there have been approximately 150 automatic transactions on the account over the last 12 years they did not count as activity and so the state is preparing to seize the account. We were told we...
  • Is Demon Possession Real?

    11/10/2017 7:35:18 AM PST · by pinochet · 146 replies
    Many people have tried to explain away the mass shootings in Texas and Las Vegas as mental illness. I can assure you that 99.9 percent of mentally ill people could never kill anyone. People are ruling out a spiritual component to these shootings. The mass shooters reflect the classic behavior one should expect of armed people who are demon-possessed. I invite Freepers who are mature Christians, and who have developed the ability to do spiritual discernment, to comment on this issue. Then there is the issue of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, the most committed Christian to be a Senate...

    I hear a lot of talk about staying home instead of voting for the Establishment RINO candidate Ed Gillespie in Virginia. The reason that is often times given for staying home is that there is no difference between the two, so why vote at all. So they use the same reasoning that was used in 1992 when many Republicans refused to the pull the lever that would have re-elected George H Bush. Oh I remember those days well, because I was trying to convince people to not vote for the hand-grenade with a bad haircut. Many die hard conservatives at...
