HOUSTON (AP) — Former astronaut Gene Cernan, who as the last person to walk on the moon returned to Earth with a message of “peace and hope for all mankind,” died on Monday, his family said. He was 82.
Cernan was with his relatives when he died at a Houston hospital following ongoing heath issues, family spokeswoman Melissa Wren told The Associated Press. His family said his devotion to lunar exploration never waned. Continue reading →
I gotta be honest, folks, this is probably for me one of the most exciting and fascinating stories I’ve ever broken here at LibertyFight.com. As a Catholic civil rights advocate and truth-seeker I have long published stories which have a Catholic angle. Even though my audience is largely secular, I believe that all types of folks should work together for the greater good. I strongly advocate for the respect of our God-given rights and that government respect the inherent natural rights of all people. To me, the battle against all the evil in this world is primarily a spiritual battle.
So to find this morning a historical never-before published letter from the Martin Luther King Jr., who is regarded worldwide as the best-known civil rights leader, is astounding. Continue reading →
Donald Trump’s inauguration committee is offering a variety of expensive perks for donors who are seeking special access to the Republican president-elect and his administration officials during the inauguration ceremony, according to a new report.
With price tags ranging from $25,000 to $1 million, the special tickets are far out of reach for the kind of blue-collar voters who helped Trump win the November 8 election against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Yahoo News reported Wednesday. Continue reading →
There are growing concerns over the increase in tension in the Balkans, with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic accusing Kosovo of “wanting war” after a Serbian train was halted before entering Kosovo due to reports it was the target of a planned attack.
Nikolic raised the warning after Kosovan officials prevented the Serbian train, which contained signs saying “Kosovo in Serbian,” from entering Kosovo over the weekend. Continue reading →
Putin controls 20% of US uranium production. That fact is established. But how did it happen?
Now that we know Trump is a hard-core Russian agent who has been undermining America on behalf of his secret twin brother, Vladimir Putin, it stands to reason Trump was the one who gave 20% of US uranium to the Russkie leader. Right? Continue reading →
A year-and-a-half ago, several Monroe County, TN police departments set up an elaborate drug sting to take down what the police perceived to be known drug dealers in the area. The message they wanted to send, according to Sherriff Tommy Jones II was, “If you are involved in any type of drug activity…you will find yourself in prison. This will not be tolerated.”
According to the Advocate and Democrat News’ official story of the sting operation, “the streets of Monroe County and its municipalities saw a lot of drugs removed last week as an operation that began in February culminated with 72 indictments being handed down and arrests made from one end of the county to another.” Continue reading →
Frederick, MD — Inside the violently enforced politically correct safe space, known as America, the perceived right to remain ignorant and unoffended reigns supreme. The latest case of PC police striking those who would dare to politely correct someone comes from Federick, MD, in which a school employee was fired for correcting a student’s spelling error on Twitter.
Katie Nash, the now former Frederick County Public Schools Social Media Coordinator, is learning the hard way what life in politically correct America is like. Nash ran the FCPS Twitter account and earlier this month, following predictions of snow, a student tweeted to @FCPSMaryland asking the schools to close “tammarow.” Continue reading →
Some 300 U.S. Marines landed in Norway on Monday for a six-month deployment, the first time since World War Two that foreign troops have been allowed to be stationed there, in a deployment which has irked Norway’s Arctic neighbor Russia.
Officials played down any link between the operation and NATO concerns over Russia, but the deployment coincides with the U.S. sending several thousand troops to Poland to beef up its Eastern European allies worried about Moscow’s assertiveness. Continue reading →
The last time we heard of Noor Salman, the widow of the Orlando nighclub shooter, she was said to have disappeared from the authorities’ radar, whether on purpose or because she was not a suspect. That changed on Monday, when law enforcement officials told AP that the widow of the Orlando nightclub shooter was arrested Monday by the FBI. Continue reading →
According to a new report, more than a third of the population of America has no access to clean, reliable drinking water. We don’t generally think of the United States as being a country where people just cannot afford to access safe water, but this is becoming more common every day. Continue reading →
That headline isn’t an exaggeration. Mike Pompeo, the Kansas congressman and Donald Trump’s pick to head the CIA, who testified on Capitol Hill earlier today, wants the government to collect all metadata from everyone, regardless of whether they’re suspected of a crime or not.
Pompeo’s expansive view of the surveillance state was made clear in an op-ed he wrote for the Wall Street Journal earlier this year, titled “Time for a Rigorous National Debate About Surveillance.” That headline alone is a red flag: “national debate,” and its more common cousin “national dialogue,” are among the most bullshit terms in our political discourse, employed almost exclusively by those who desire the opposite.

When Windows 10 was released, the tech world was abuzz with glee. But then, we all started to take a gander under the hood of this software sportscar, only to discover a rather horrifying sight. It seems this ride tracks every … little … thing … you … do, and then quickly reports this data to the James-Bond-villain headquarters, otherwise known as Microsoft.
