    The Washington Times ^ | Friday June 2, 2017 | S.A. Miller
    President Trump’s supporters plan to hold a “Pittsburgh Not Paris” rally Saturday in front of the White House to demonstrate support for his decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement, countering expected protests by Democrats and liberal activists. The rally, named after Mr. Trump’s remark about representing “citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris” when announcing he was ripping up the Obama-era agreement, was organized by the Republican Party of Fairfax Country, Virginia, in the D.C. suburbs. The Trump campaign urged the president’s supporters in the area to attend the event Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon across from...
  • A Freep needed – D.C. Switchboard changes to limit our ability to call all Congressmen.

    A Freep needed – I have the D.C. Switchboard on my phone. For YEARS I have called and a volunteer will answer and ask me who I want to be connected to. I do not only call my U.S. Representative or Senator, I call them all. I just called to speak to Nancy Pelosi who came to Texas and called us cowards for obeying the rule of law (on illegals and Sanctuary cities). Well, now the switchboard automated asks press 1 for Senator and 2 for Representative. If you press 2 for Representative then you must enter your zip code...

  • Keep Free Republic up and running (Vanity)

    While Free Republic was down I read some snarky remarks about Free Republic and Jim Rob on Facebook. Free Republic is supported 100% by our donations. The reason we do not have the best and top of the line servers and backup servers is money. If Jim Rob were to make this a commercial site he would retire an extremely rich man. If it was a commercial site it would be like Breitbart. On Breitbart you wade through tons of ads and popups! Hundred of thousands of people visit Free Republic. If just a small percentage became monthly donors there...

    Hidden Americans ^ | 04/27/2017 | Richard Saunders
    Hidden Americans went to the Battle of Berkeley on 4/27/2017 and saw first hand the new Americana right counter culture. Historically Berkeley is known as the home of the American free speech movement, but after Ann Coulter’s speech was canceled by the University free speech advocates organized online and took to the campus to protest the censorship. Everyone at Berkeley is a hippie, wanna-be hippie, or cross dresser so when a bunch of young pro-America patriots show up dressed in American flags and green frogs, you know the real counter culture revolution going on is being pro-American. This isn’t a...

    KCBS (San Francisco) ^ | April 26th, 2017 | Unattributed
    BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Following the cancellation of the Ann Coulter speech at University of California, Berkeley, far-right supporters plan to hold a rally Thursday to denounce what they claim is the attempted silencing of their conservative views, stoking fears of another violent encounter with far-left groups. UC Police said it was preparing for violence Thursday between militant factions on both sides, even as the speech by the conservative firebrand Coulter was canceled over fears of violence. Gavin McInnes, founder of the pro-Trump “Proud Boys,” said he would fly to Berkeley to speak Thursday and was encouraging other alt-right forces...

    Breitbart ^ | April 26, 2017 | Charlie Nash
    Former Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos declared that he would “make sure” UC Berkeley would “become the free speech capital of the United States once again” in response to the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s event on campus. “Awful to see my friend Ann Coulter forced to cancel her speech,” wrote Milo on his official Facebook page. “I don’t understand why Young America’s Foundation would capitulate so close to victory. Ann can hardly be expected to show up without insurance, security or a venue, so I completely understand why she had to cancel. She is Ann Coulter, after all.” “My proposed...

    For the first time in 12 years I am breaking two traditions for the TCMS. Each year the shoot is held at different locations; although some ranges were visited two or more times, it has never happened in consecutive years. But because my life has been a bit wonky lately I just don’t have the energy for the research and recon. The other broken tradition is the name change. This year we will also honor my co-cat herder, NYTexan, and my beloved husband, Eaker; both of these fine men passed away within days of each other this past March. Therefore,...
  • Getting dragged down into the unconstitutional socialized healthcare quagmire is insanity!

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    The sooner the president realizes that Ryan is an establishment swamp dwelling snake...that's going to suck him down into the swampy quicksand and destroy his chances of enacting HIS agenda the better off he and we will be. Ryan represents the enemy within! Trump won the election already! Now it's his duty is to change gears, uphold the constitution, drain the swamp and MAGA. Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    the Hill ^ | March 29, 2017 | BY MARK MECKLER
    When Mitt Romney selected Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, people cheered. He was young, attractive, idealistic, and — doggone it! — he did P90x. Images of him lifting weights bounced across the internet. Surely this is what the GOP needed, they said. New blood. Youth. Strength. The fact that his losing bid against Barack Obama and Joe Biden was the high mark of his career says a great deal about his legacy. His lack of true leadership has grown more and more evident. During the last week, Speaker Ryan's stature managed to shrink in regard to Congress, and...
  • President Ronald Reagan Radio Address to the Nation on Prayer in Schools

    http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=39565 ^ | February 25, 1984 | President Ronald Reagan
    My fellow Americans: From the early days of the colonies, prayer in school was practiced and revered as an important tradition. Indeed, for nearly 200 years of our nation's history, it was considered a natural expression of our religious freedom. But in 1962 the Supreme Court handed down a controversial decision prohibiting prayer in public schools. Sometimes I can't help but feel the first amendment is being turned on its head. Because ask yourselves: Can it really be true that the first amendment can permit Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen to march on public property, advocate the extermination of people...
  • Repeal Obamacare and replace with freedom. Change House and Senate rules to do so if necessary!

    "Prior to this year, the House voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times ---when it was clear that President Obama would veto the bill. The problem we are facing is that some of the people who voted for repeal 50 times will not vote for repeal when it counts, when it is "our moment in time," with Republicans in control of Congress and the presidency." --Rep Dave Brat "This has been my complaint since before Obamacare became law. Nothing I’ve seen addresses the problem of increased costs of medical care. All these bills just shift the rising costs from...

    Lemons: Gun-Totin' Left-Wingers Demonstrate at the Arizona Capitol: Is Bloodshed on the Horizon? By Stephen Lemons Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 7:15 a.m. Phoenix New Times =================================== Hey, lefties with guns, that's cool. At least, that was my first impression upon seeing about 40 or so assorted anarchists, Brown Berets, and members of a group calling itself the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club across the street from the state Capitol, openly armed to the proverbial teeth. I was late to the pro-Trump "Make America Great Again" march, which began at Cesar Chavez Plaza — after some confusion about the demonstration's...

The four-hour event, which was largely peaceful, took on a sour note...
