Apparently it had burst. She's had surgery and is in the ICU now. He says she's doing better tonight and they might move her tomorrow. Prayers on the way.

    The cat is now completely out of the bag, so I might as well fess up. I am leaving at the end of this year. June 3rd was my 40th birthday and also my 10th year on the payroll as Editor-in-Chief of RedState. I emailed the corporate overlords that day and told them it was time to start planning a transition. Frankly, I wanted to be done the week after the RedState Gathering, but they asked me to stay till the end of the year and I agreed.

    Other GOP presidential hopefuls are eyeing Alabama. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's stop in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday is part of a spate of visits to the state by Republican hopefuls seeking the party's 2016 nomination for president. "We are very, very excited about the kind of traffic we are getting, and we know it is all because of joining the SEC primary. This is unprecedented in the history of our state," Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said. Alabama lawmakers voted during the 2015 regular session to move up the presidential primary beginning in 2016 from the second Tuesday of March...

According to his family, he is having a great reunion with his parents, his oldest sister, his parents-in-law and many others including many FReepers.

Many times, he drove 2 hours each way to join the Fresno Freepers in support of our troops. Dave had a very strong faith that was an inspiration...

    Ted Cruz is getting a boost in South Carolina from Rep. Jeff Duncan, who on Monday will announce Cruz as the first headliner for his Faith & Freedom BBQ next month. The event, which in five years has ballooned to the largest Republican event in the Palmetto State, will present a key opportunity for GOP presidential candidates to connect with conservative voters in a state that will help decide the Republican nominee. But, unlike at many party events, where often all candidates are invited to speak, Duncan will this year select only three or four of his favorite Republican contenders,...

Nobody has been more vocal in pointing out the President’s lawlessness or more passionate about fighting his usurpation of congressional authority. Senator Cruz would not and will not give President Obama one more inch of unrestricted power. There have been a lot of questions and concerns about 2the ongoing Pacific trade negotiations. Many of those concerns, fueled by the media, stem from confusion about Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Let’s unpack the issues one by one. What...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz drew raucous cheers yesterday from a crowd of hundreds of Bay State voters gathered at the Andover home of state Rep. Jim Lyons, where the presidential hopeful took shots at presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and President Obama. And while his jabs at Clinton and Obama were met with cheers from the crowd, Cruz’s opening line may have generated the most enthusiastic hollers: “Tom Brady was framed ... and I have it on good authority that Hillary Clinton did it.” The heavy turnout at Lyons’ Highvale Lane home, where some were turned away at the door...

    When I was a kid I thought it would be cool to learn just how many Japanese my dad had killed during the War so I just asked him. He never had a problem telling me about his WWII experiences as a 11th AB paratrooper. But this time he sternly declined to answer. He was always proud of his military service but considered killing other people a necessary evil not something to flaunt. While helping to liberate Manila he received a wound to the top of his head which required a titanium plate to help mend. He lived over 70...

  • Urgent Prayer Request for Johnny Random Freeper (Update at #237)

    This may be a bad place or time, but I'll ask anyway. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I'm not quite back up to 110 pounds yet, but I'll go with what I've got. Tomorrow (Friday) I have a follow up appointment with the MD that did my 15 radiation treatments. Those treatments only treated my brain cancer, and did nothing for the other cancers we know I have. If everything goes right tomorrow, I'll begin my HEME/ONC treatment for the lung cancers and other stuff that I have. I've been made to understand that this is even rougher...

  • Prayer Request For Freeper My Favorite Headache

    I am writing this on-behalf of my husband and long time Freeper My Favorite Headache, he suffered a skull fracture, severe concussion, and a host of other body injuries on the night of March 6th after slipping on a patch of ice after a snowstorm hit earlier in the morning. He was walking to his car leaving a friends house from the garage to the driveway, literally 8 steps and he just went down. The injury was sustained to the back of his head and to his back and neck and had lost all feeling in his right leg which...

    Three months ago, the lapdog media was convinced that the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch was a "slam dunk." Now, not so much. Lynch, as you may remember, has been characterized as "Eric Holder in a skirt." She committed, under oath, to continue to push Holder's unconstitutional anti-gun executive amnesty. She is in favor of a semi-auto ban, which should be of interest at a time when the Justice Department is using every means possible to ban semi-autos by executive fiat. In addition, when asked about the central pillar of Barack Obama's anti-gun push -- the universal background...
