Let’s repeal & replace the news media.

Dont it !! Disconnected commercial cable TV 6 months ago.

No more problematic 4 hour erections. No more depressing fluttering butterflys on my screen. No more Shep Smith or any other blowviating (yeah him too) mouthpiece telling me anything.

...and what do you know? I still have a brain and can think for myself. I had almost forgotten that.

FreeRepublic is the only news outlet I want or need.

The world hasnt stopped spinning. One hour TV shows only take 43 minutes when you take out all the advertising, and Obama still screw things up faster than all ya'll can bring them to light.

Pull the plug on 'em. It wont hurt you a bit.

We sure do. That guy has a rather impressive spine. It’s one thing to advocate standing up for what you believe, but it’s another to do it against the full weight of the U. S. Justice Department coming down on you.

Uh huh, just goes to show the whole ordeal was nothing but an attempt to intimidate him and it didn't work.

Now if the government would take seriously his charges that Obama is an illegal alien....................

It was, apparently, a Geraldo Rivera-type event.

We knew they wouldn’t find anything. But what is shocking is that they couldn’t gin up anything plausible. Lord knows it takes no evidence to set the Enemamedia to howling for Republican blood.

Outside a few sites like this no one is paying any attention to this ridiculous stunt. It won’t “haunt” any generation.

What I meant is the obvious corruption, on every level, of the entire regime.

But you are right, the majority of the youngest voting generation is likely not paying attention to any of it.

“...what happened to Trump’s big surprise at the convention? Did I miss it?”

He was going to fire an Obama impersonator, but when the scheduling changed because of the hurricane, it was cancelled....boo. That would have been good!

The libs have wanted to destroy personal responsibility and replace it with government dependence forever. That’s exactly why I chose it as a screen name.

As the old saying goes:
If you want to annoy a conservative, tell a lie about him
If you want to annoy a liberal, tell the truth about him

What happened to Sheriff Joe’s investigation?

Just because they stopped probing doesn’t mean
Joe’s stops his probe—right?

Entirely predictable, since much more mileage could be gotten out of the fear factor, and the intimidation value of such
“investigations”, than any nebulous “findings” that might come their way from such and investigation.
Dropping the investigation makes no waves, and will hardly be reported anywhere. The WHOLE POINT was the initial hoopla that could be created around the “very serious business” of
investigating Arpaio.
More ways to waste our money.

Getting Congress to touch what the leftists have branded a “birther issue,” is another story.

To show their support for Arpaio for sticking his neck out for them, by investigating Obama’s fraudulent documents, and to call for a congressional investigation, the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots will be hosting an event on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Celebrity Theater, 440 N 32nd St., Phoenix.

In addition to Arpaio and Zullo, featured guests include Pat Boone, who will speak and sing; former LTC Terry Lakin, the Army flight surgeon who was stripped of his military career for standing behind his officer’s oath; Bettina Viviano, Hollywood movie producer of “We Will Not be Silenced,” exposing the Clintons’ and Democrat’s knowledge of Obama’s ineligibility; and Tom Ballantyne, author of “Oh Really, O’Reilly! The Spin Starts Here … Apparently!”

Doors will open at 10 a.m., the program will start at 11 a.m. and the meet and greet/photo opportunities will follow from 1:30 – 3 p.m.

Tickets are $25 ($30 on day of event) for reserved seats plus meet and greet session and photo opportunities with guests and speakers, and $10 ($15 on day of event) for general admission.

Unfortunately, it is not just the youngest generation of voters. We have to face it, people are not inclined towards serious thought on any matter much less politics seen through the screen of lies the media presents.

Our worst corruption is moral corruption.

Not being particularly prone to conspiracy or even just contemplating much behind headlines-—did I ever smell a rat when I read that Commie racist Holder had abrubtly dropped this witch hunt. That is just not done by these jackals.

Something is very much behind this curtain.
