  • Trump Has Succeeded in Convincing Conservatives to Discard their Principles Overnight

    Trump Has Succeeded in Convincing Conservatives to Discard their Principles Overnight by CHARLES C. W. COOKE. September 1, 2015. Since he jumped self-confidently into the political limelight, Donald Trump has been quite the upside-down man. Customarily, primary seasons permit each party’s voters to indulge in a rational process of elimination: First, they discover which candidate most closely agrees with them on policy, and then they ask themselves whether that person is capable of representing their ideas in public. This time around, however, this process has been disastrously inverted, a solid portion of the Republican party’s balloters having decided first who...

    Two days after he was booted from a Donald Trump press conference by security for asking questions about immigration out of turn, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos defended himself on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” Asked if he was grandstanding when he got into a confrontation with the GOP presidential frontrunner, Ramos said absolutely not. “I’m just a reporter asking questions,” Ramos explained. “But I also believe, Anderson, that you have to go the extra mile to be tough on those who are in power.”

  • CNN OPINION: Charles Barkley, wrong on race, Ferguson and Garner

    [SNIP] "There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong, and sometimes it is right," Barkley said. The problem with these statements isn't just that they are misleading -- 16 out of 29 witness statements said that Mike Brown had his hands up to surrender, in direct conflict with Darren Wilson's story; and police used a banned choke hold on Eric Garner, a measure that was known to cause death -- but that Charles Barkley is uniquely and astoundingly unqualified to discuss issues of race, law and police violence. If property...

    In the wake of the Nov. 24 decision by a Missouri grand jury to not press charges against the White officer responsible for killing an unarmed African-American teen, a coalition of civil groups presented a unified front in its denouncement of the decision and its call for systemic changes to the American justice system. “We are profoundly disappointed with the miscarriage of justice that occurred last night,” Barbara Arnwine, executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said during a press call on Nov. 25. Although the Ferguson grand jury did not indict Darren Wilson, she added,...

    -snip- Cantor was fairly placid during his appearance on ABC’s “This Week” and in an earlier interview with CNN’s “State of the Union,” but bristled when ABC correspondent asked him about Ingraham.Cantor zeroed in on Ingraham’s charge that he was “two-faced” and a “phony” on the issue of immigration reform because he touted himself as an opponent of amnesty but also worked on legislation to grant legal status to young illegal immigrants.Ingraham joked that Cantor should have been traded to the Taliban in exchange for American POW Bowe Bergdahl, who is accused of deserting his combat post in Afghanistan.“That suggestion...

    Yesterday after complaining that one of the hoodlums called Freepers at Free Republic had copied my article without my permission, I was publicly chastised and escorted off by his excellency Jim Robinson, the psychotic founder of Free Republic himself. I was upset at first until I read other accounts online of Robinson’s war on Conservative Bloggers and how I am now in pretty good company with the likes of Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity, who belonged to Free Republic at one time and were both banished by Mr Robinson. “Everyone I knew basically left because of so many childish, immature...

    Statement from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee Washington, D.C. (May, 6, 2013)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement regarding recent allegations relating to Benghazi: “I believe Congress should conduct investigations—particularly those involving our national security—in a bipartisan and responsible manner, and that whistleblowers must have the ability to come forward to Congress and be protected from retaliation when they report waste, fraud, or abuse. I also believe Members of Congress have an obligation to actually investigate claims before coming to...

    Forgive me, Freepers, for I have sinned. My sins are many: 1. I linked to my own website, which is a sign of the arrogant belief that people might want to read what I write. Of course, if I didn't think that, I wouldn't write in the first place, so it's hard to see much difference. 2. I "stole bandwidth," though it's hard to see how posting a short exerpt with a link was worse than posting a long article--or how repeated insulting comments don't also "steal bandwidth." 3. I wanted people to "pay" me to be "showered with my...

    As President, Barack Obama has shown the occasional capacity to recognize good policies when he sees them. As a candidate for president, Mr. Obama continuously condemned George W. Bush for the Guantanamo Bay enemy combatant facility, for enhanced interrogation techniques, rendition, black site interrogation facilities, virtually everything else the nation was doing in the “War on Terror,” and also for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That technique played well with voters and helped him win the election. But as president he learned that things look different from inside the Oval Office than from outside on the campaign trail, and...

    The Fall of Jim Robinson’s Free Republic Website I want to report and expose a devious and vicious campaign that is currently underway on the so-called “premier” site on the Internet for conservatives, Free Republic. Ironically, the target of this campaign is fellow…conservatives, especially conservative bloggers, completely removing any justification from Free Republic for promoting this kind of action. I moonlight as a conservative blogger, though I write for Examiner, which is a news website run by the Clarity Media Group. I have been familiar with Free Republic for several years, and I had been lurking there since about 2003...

    Go back a couple of pages on the comments section to see how the sad little HuffPo Stalinists are managing negative comments about FORMER congressman Alan Grayson, by marking them all as spam. Personally, I think it's funny. (Sorry if I've inadvertently violated any Free Republic Etiquette. I'm new).

    "…The more terrifying the occasion for defense, the closer will become the organization and the more coercive the influence upon each member of the herd. War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to become—the inexorable arbiter and determinant of men’s business and attitudes and opinions…" -Randolph Bourne Dear...
