    4/1/2014 | Admin Moderator
    The Free Republic moderator staff today announced a major shakeup in the staffing at FR - no longer will the Viking Kitties be called upon to finish off trolls. "We decided that we should embrace 21st Century Technology instead of just getting all Medieval on trolls" Admin Moderator was quoted as saying. "Yeah, drones aren't cute and cuddly when not frying trolls, but you don't have to scoop the litterbox with drones." "We did extensive field testing of Chaotic Moon drones on Sidebar Moderator. They worked swimmingly and put Sidebar on the deck every time, although he hasn't quite been...

    Announcing the 2013 Free Republic Meet & Greet It is that time of year again. Time to start planning for our annual meet & greet. After several weeks of planning, we finally have some details for this event. This year’s meet & greet will be the weekend of Friday, September 13th. We chose San Francisco this year due to some great sponsorship opportunities that will reduce the amount of money FReepers will need to spend. Friday’s events will begin with a dinner sponsored by Lou Malnati’s Pizza at the Bohemian Club, 624 Taylor Street, San Francisco, California. The Bohemian Club...

    We can’t rely on the media, even the alternative media. Free Republic is announcing a new initiative that gives you a platform. We want to leverage the most powerful minds on the right to make a difference. To do this, we want to bring a new level of activism, the citizen investigator. In the spirit of 1750’s The Pennsylvania Gazette published by Ben Franklin and of Andrew Breitbart. For the longest time, our primary focus has been on looking at what the media presents and investigating it or discussing it. We have been missing something, YOU! Jim has created a...

A suggestion from this moderator: Post full text from you blog and ask nicely for a hit to your link. Freepers will treat you much more kindly if you heed this advice.

We have no idea as to the legitimacy of this claim however, we need to warn everyone that the source of this video is a group called The Council of Conservative Citizens. This is NOT a Conservative group, do not be fooled by the name. This group is a front group for a neo-Nazi group known as the National Alliance and is associated with Stormfront....

Most who want to view only one forum choose news. Currently these are your only two options. Most posters choose all because they know how to sort through the comments that they want to read. AM

    <p>"To the people of Iran: You are rich in culture and talent. You have a right to live under a government that listens to your wishes, respects your talents, and allows you to build better lives for your families. Unfortunately, your government denies you these opportunities, and threatens the peace and stability of your neighbors. So we call on the regime in Tehran to heed your will, and to make itself accountable to you. The day will come when the people of Iran have a government that embraces liberty and justice, and Iran joins the community of free nations. And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America." - President George W. Bush, January 13, 2008.</p>

They told us not to come down there because we couldn’t see him. Now they’ve called and said his heart stopped during the surgery. They got it started again but he’s in trouble.

    "Rolling Thunder" is a most fitting motto. Indeed, thousands of bikers are rolling along the Washington area's roadways today with plenty of gumption and an unabashed carbon footprint. Exhaust pipes are vibrating, pistons are pumping, and it is, well, thunderous. For the 21st year in a row, the two-wheeled crusade called Rolling Thunder has taken over the capital of the free world. An estimated 350,000 motorcyclists — plus their intrepid passengers, activists, organizers, fans and awestruck spectators — have assembled here to draw America's attention to fallen soldiers, lost warriors, prisoners of war, honored veterans and military families.
