  • State Dept. Warns: Iran Seeking to Capture U.S. Citizens

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 8/22/2016 | Adam Kredo
    The State Department issued a warning on Monday urging U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to Iran, which has made the detention of American a priority. The latest travel advisory, which emphasizes Iran’s desire to capture U.S. citizens, comes on the heels of a growing scandal over the Obama administration’s decision to pay Iran $400 million in cash on the same day that it freed several U.S. hostages. The payment has been cast by lawmakers and others as a ransom payment and prompted increasing concern among U.S. officials that Iran is making arresting Americans a priority. The travel warning is mean...

    Dear Freeper Friends, Its been a long time since I have logged in and I hope you are all doing well. I would like to remind everyone that _No Polls Can Be Trusted!_ Please take a quick look at Clinton vs Dole as reference. One of our fellow Freepers managed to apply some math to an LA Times poll which showed something like 65% of respondents were women, and given the liberal tendency of many women the poll showing Dole losing by double-digits was hopelessly skewed. He used responses from other questions to derive his results showing the amount of...

    Pat Archbold: At what point is it legitimate to take up arms against this illegitimate government? I think that armed resistance might be legitimate as a defensive act if several states secede. Just war theory requires a reasonable chance of success? Without secession of multiple states, can armed defense be legitimate? Alpha Bravo: Well, isn’t that the question du jour?

    The "queering" of the armed forces took a giant leap forward last week with the announcement of a new ship being named in honor of Harvey Milk, a Navy veteran and the first openly homosexual elected official in California. The Village People are reportedly thrilled. Milk, who was a city supervisor in San Francisco until his 1978 murder, is perhaps best known for his fight against the Briggs Initiative, a statewide ballot question that would have banned openly homosexual teachers from public schools. Governor Ronald Reagan, to his discredit, opposed the measure and it failed by a wide margin. Milk,...

    The rule of law died a little last Tuesday when FBI director James Comey announced the Bureau's findings concerning Hillary Clinton and her illegal email server. After a short speech in which he detailed the findings of the investigation, he recommended against charging her with anything. You didn't think it would happen any other way, did you? I certainly didn't. As blatant as her lawbreaking was--some of which was not even discussed in Comey's speech--it seemed fanciful to believe that Hillary Clinton, the ultimate insider, would actually do the perp walk. As a former First Lady, former senator, and former...

Submission to Jihad One day after a prominent U.S. Muslim leader reacted to the November 2015 Paris attacks with a declaration that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has nothing to do with Islam, President Obama made the same assertion. Who exactly is the enemy we face, not only in the Middle East but also within our borders? Is it “murderers without a coherent creed” or “nihilistic killers who want to tear things down,” as some described ISIS after 130 people were brutally slain and another 368 injured...

    Hillary Clinton breathed new life into her "girl power" campaign last week when she complained in a New York Magazine interview about latent sexism. According to Mrs. Clinton, she'd encountered people at campaign events who told her "I really admire you, I really like you, I just don't know if I can vote for a woman to be president." Yeah--said no one ever. It's as if someone said to her "You're awesome, I love you, but I'm just too sexist to check the box next to your name." We're supposed to believe that sexism is now so pervasive that even...

    Using the "wrong" pronoun in casual conversation can cost you big bucks these days--even when it happens to be the right one. Gresham-Barlow School District in Oregon was forced to cough up $60,000 to a teacher who prefers the pronoun "they" because she "identifies" as neither male nor female. The teacher, Leo Soell, was granted damages in order to compensate her for the emotional distress of being "misgendered." For the uninitiated, "misgendering" is nothing more than using the correct pronoun to refer to a person who prefers to be called something else. In the old days we just called it...

    Who says there's no such thing as life after death? If voting rolls are any indicator, dead people these days are living very active lifestyles. According to an investigative report by CBS2, Los Angeles's CBS affiliate, some dead people continue to vote years after meeting their maker. The investigation revealed that 265 dead voters across five counties in southern California voted in recent elections, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Some of the deceased cast ballots in multiple elections. Thirty-two of those deceased voters were found to have voted eight times since kicking the bucket. One woman who died...

    I was pleasantly surprised to see the media pause for a moment last week to recall China's Cultural Revolution on the 50th anniversary of its regrettable birth. Unlike a lot of the media's silly anniversaries this one is actually worth remembering. If you aren't familiar with the Cultural Revolution just think of Stephen King's "Children of the Corn" being played out in China rather than rural Nebraska. The movement began in 1966 and lasted about ten years. Children rose up against their elders and seized for themselves the reins of power, humiliating their parents and teachers and sometimes even murdering...

    Has there ever been a president cooler than Obama? That's the question that Newsweek, an ostensible "news" magazine, asked last week via Twitter. The tweet featured a picture of the president slapping hands with his friend and political supporter, the rapper Jay Z. It's hard to argue with Newsweek on this one. Obama is cool -- though that alone doesn't make him a great president. When it comes to leaders, coolness and greatness might actually be mutually exclusive. Cool people aren't usually substantive and frequently lack the moral courage to do the right thing when the right thing isn't cool...

    THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT FRONTPAGE MAG It takes a certain chutzpah to insist that food lines are actually a good thing--but that's exactly what Bernie Sanders did in 1985 when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. An old video of Sanders, a self-described "democratic" socialist, has surfaced in which he speaks favorably of the Marxist government of Nicaragua. The video was recorded in August of 1985, just weeks after he visited Nicaragua at the invitation of the left-wing junta. Sanders went beyond decrying American involvement in that nation's dirty civil war and actually praised the Soviet-supported Sandinistas,...

Last week, the GOP's leading candidate answered a question from an Afghanistan veteran named Robert Kitelinger who asked, "In your opinion, what are the top three functions of the United States government?" Trump listed security, healthcare, and education. He said something a little different in August 2015 when he listed his top priorities as the military, veterans and jobs. These two statements are not necessarily irreconcilable of course. In August 2015 he was speaking about what his own priorities as president would be, while in...

They got three residents and a dog out of the building. D.C. firefighter Danny Lovato gave his mask to Phyllis Terrell, who was...

I enjoy her columns and always buy her books when they come out, even if I don’t always agree with everything she says. She, like Trump, revels in shocking liberals, which goes a long way toward explaining the attraction. Admittedly, it’s not difficult to shock liberals, who take offense at things like colorblind hiring, the American...

    "I'm really good at killing people," Barack Obama once allegedly said. The origin of the quote is the 2013 book "Double Down" by veteran political journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who cite unnamed Obama aides as their source. The two reporters have journalistic credits even a liberal would respect--The New Yorker, The Economist, and MSNBC, to name a few. Some people choose not to give the quote credence because its source is anonymous and it wasn't caught on tape. Skepticism surrounding anonymous quotes is of course understandable though I surmise that most doubters have political motives. People who are...
