  • The Border Invasion - Fast & Furious in reverse

    07/19/2014 12:36:04 PM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 4 replies
    I haven't seen this connection yet, but it seems to me that the current border invasion is Fast and Furious in reverse. At least in political terms. Has there ever been an administration that foments international tensions in pursuit of its domestic agenda? In Fast and Furious guns were run to Mexico with the assumption that these guns would come back to kill Americans. Then the Left would call for more legislation to control weapons in the USA and restrict 2nd Amendment rights. Children were killed in Mexico with these guns as was one of our border agents, Brian Terry....
  • Kopechne- The Movie

    Twitchy ^ | July 19, 2114 | Brian Cates
    Lest we forget, it was 55 years ago ( July 18, 1969 ) that Ted Kennedy crawled and slimed his way to land and Armstrong landed on the moon ( July 20th). Progressives should not be allowed to forget the anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the real war on women. A blogger named Brian Cates on Twitchy has given a riveting accounting of the hour by hour actions of the infamous and duplicitous Ted Kennedy. At the end of the blog a poster calling himself the DivingPetrel imagined how an Oliver Stone Hollywood would re-enact the...
  • Too many Catholics on the Supreme Court ?

    Red State ^ | 7/2/2014 | Streiff
    RedState.com quotes a Huffington Post article wondering whether there are too many Catholics on the Supreme Court? At present there are no Protestants on the Supreme Court. 3 are Jewish ( Kagan, Breyer, and Bader ) and the remaining 6 are Catholic. It's been noted that the Supreme Court has never reflected the demographics of the country. The Court was all white until 1967 with the appointment of Thurgood Marshall, and Sandra Day O'Conner became the first female SC justice in 1981. Andrew Jackson appointed the first Catholic SC justice, Roger Taney, in 1836. The largest Protestant group in the...
  • The WDDIM Party

    06/25/2014 11:30:39 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 2 replies
    In a totally unexpected political shocker it has been discovered in emails to the IRS by the Bilderberg Group that Karl Rove and George Soros have conspired to form the WDDIM Party. Citing ridiculous mailing and advertising costs of appeals to their bases for political donations to achieve the same ends, Rove and Soros have agreed to share their donor bases and distribute the wealth to the candidates of their new WDDIM Party. "The GOP is decrepit and dying," Rove was quoted as saying, and Soros is concerned that he is losing control of his moonbats. Rove and Soros traded...
  • Which Hoover do we want?

    05/10/2014 7:35:30 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 25 replies
    Very simple question and possibly shortest post in history. Knowing that an economic collapse is coming of depression magnitude or worse, do Freepers want another republican Hoover, or is it time for a democrat Hoover in 2016 to reap what he has sown?
  • Washington's Rotten Core "We Know People"

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 4/11/2014 | Matthew Continetti
    Tony Podesta (brother of John Podesta ) and wife Heather formed The Podesta Group and Heather Podesta + Partners in 2007. John Podesta's Center for American Progress completed the three-pronged Podesta empire. Brother John is currently a senior advisor to President Obama. Heather launched her lobby firm with the catchy slogan "We Know People." One of her party invitations read as follows: “The prix fixe includes the Select Committee on Intelligence for the first course followed by your choice of Appropriations, Judiciary, or Rules Committees.” Now two-thirds of that empire is crumbling because of the divorce case of Tony Podesta....
  • College Football and Capitalism

    03/27/2014 7:43:27 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 86 replies
    College football players should not be paid. Plain and simple. But there is no reason why any player should not be given carte blanche to capitalize on his chosen sport. Capitalism 101 rides to the rescue once again. In addition to the free education players get, any player, on scholarship or not, should be allowed to sell and hawk his personal merchandise from t-shirt to jockstrap. He or she should be allowed to put his name and school name/logo on his jersey or helmet or whatever - just like the pros do. A player could sell and trade cards with...
  • Citizens United and Hobby Lobby

    03/27/2014 7:21:37 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 13 replies
    I am not a lawyer or legal beagle nor have I even stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, but would there not be some connection with the Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United and the current Hobby Lobby case? And if so, why isn't this being discussed in the media and conservative talk radio? In Citizens United, the Supreme Court basically established corporations as individuals allowing them to contribute to political campaigns. If a corporation is regarded as an individual when it comes to political contributions, why would not a corporation be given religious freedom rights as an individual? The...
  • Putin's Kiss on Netflix ... must watch

    03/16/2014 8:20:07 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 7 replies
    I posted this as Putin's Kiss yesterday, and it only got one hit. Maybe if I post its title as a movie on Netflix that might stir more interest, because like the Lives of Others, this movie/documentary is well worth watching. The parallels between Russian society and ours is not only instructive but frightening, and I wish our leftist youth could see themselves as Masha in Putin's Kiss. Want to see what America will become before the end of the Obama regime? Want to see where it is happening right now, and from which we are just days away? Want...

    Want to see what America will become before the end of the Obama regime? Want to see where it is happening right now, and from which we are just days away? Want to see a society without law or legal recourse? Want to see how a government takes its cues from the winks and nods of its despot? Want to see how the low information voter idolizes its Dear Leader? Meet Masha Drokova who has been smitten with the kiss of Putin since the age of 15. Watch as she moves up the ranks of the Russian youth organization, Nashi,...
  • Why have Open Primaries?

    03/06/2014 6:55:52 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 27 replies
    Almost half of the states have open primaries. Why do states like Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas have open republican primaries? It's like having a death wish to turn purple, blue, and asphyxiated by democrat and independent voters. One of the first things the Tea Party needs to do is turn more states into closed primaries. The theory is that open primaries will bring more voters to our tent. I don't buy it. Or maybe the republican brand name is so bad that people don't want to register as republicans and be stigmatized. But then you would...
  • The harpist or the heiress? Image is all in the race to be first woman mayor of Paris

    03/02/2014 6:09:48 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 12 replies
    The Guardian ^ | 3/1/2014 | Kim Wilsher
    The heiress and the harpist are running for mayor of Paris. The race is intriguing only because both candidates are women. The race is all about image, and the voters know it. "Don't worry," says a passer-by overhearing the conversation. "It'll never happen."" What will never happen is the promise of the harpist, a former Sarkozy minister, to convert ghost metro stations into swimming pools for the homeless. Kosciusko-Morizet earned her nickname of the harpist ever since being photographed for Paris Match lounging in an evening gown in a forest next to a harp "like some posh wood nymph." Vying...
  • There is a job Americans won't do.

    Vanity ^ | February 22, 2014
    Yes, there is one job that Americans will not do. Will not ever do again. America has had its one and only American Revolution. The revolution in Ukraine got me to thinking. Can anyone imagine Americans walking through the White House or the Capital and reclaiming it like just happened in Ukraine? Or even hanging around and waving patriotic banners into the early hours of a Monday morn? Nope; time to go to work. Had our million man march; done that, now back to like it never happened. Americans mock the pusillanimous French, but they are anything but. They will...
  • Brokeback Mountain The Opera

    01/27/2014 6:27:20 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 24 replies
    AP Bretibart ^ | 1/27/2014
    Brokeback Mountain, The Opera,is having its premiere opening in Madrid, Spain. The author, Annie Proulx, said that the operatic version would "present an opportunity to explore the complexities of the tale in a way neither her own short story nor the movie by director Ang Lee were able to do." She also said that the opera would "open up the characters involved in the doomed love affair." Which, I imagine, will go a long way in helping the actors reach those high notes. Apologies aforehand for any coffee upchucked keyboards.

    Melbourne Herald Sun ^ | January 25th, 2014
    Li Na thanked her agent after winning her second tennis Grand Slam in Australia. "Max, agent, make me rich, thanks a lot" she said." Funny that proclaiming that you are rich is cool in China and Russia, but no longer in the good ole USA. Haven't communist countries heard about income inequality? Sharing the wealth? When is the last time one of our sport's stars proclaimed his or her wealth to the world ? Li Na ranks 85th in the world's highest paid athletes having won over $18 million dollars in her career. Li Na is anything but a communist,...
  • Maryland to Return to Paper Ballots in 2016.

    CBS Baltimore ^ | 11/20/2013 | Pat Warren
    The state of Maryland is returning to the paper ballot in 2016. “When we say `paper ballot,’ what do we mean?” said Linda Lamone, State Board of Elections. Which brings up the irony and another candidate for the Coburn government waste file. “Then we have to do a very extensive public outreach because the voters in Maryland have been using a very different voting system,” Lamone said. “We need to make sure people know how to vote when they go to the polls in 2016.” Yes, the low information voter will have to be trained on how to use something...
  • America vs Europe - things that amazed me.

    Recently there was an interesting article about what foreigners thought of American culture - http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3090848/posts Just thought I’d share my observations of times I lived in Europe. Here's a scattering of what I discovered. All payments are electronic. Your salary, your bills, your insurance, your rent or mortgage, etc. You constantly have to check online to see where you are financially. Hospitals are stark and bare. No beautification or art work. But hospital rooms have windows you can open and patients can buy beer in the cafeteria. Electrical bills are paid in advance. You are billed for electrical usage that...
  • The Redskins Solution

    10/25/2013 8:39:58 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 53 replies
    Here is the politically correct solution to the problem of what to call the Washington Redskins. I have heard that dropping the most offensive derogatory term, 'Washington,' would solve the problem. Charles Krauthammer wants to just call them the Washington Skins. George Will sides with history and says it should remain The Washington Redskins. It doesn't matter that most of the Indian nations have no problem with the terminology. All it takes is for one Indian to be offended for the PC Stasi to beat the war drums. I hold that the city of Washington has evolved, and it is...
  • Yes, the Constitution and its amendments are outdated.

    Twitchy.com ^ | 10/7/13 | Twitchy staff
    In Arkansas a class of sixth graders were asked to prune the Constitution and its amendments. Glenn Beck decried the notion of an outdated Constitution in his radio program. Like a true patriot he defended it, but he was wrong. The Constitution is outdated as are many of its amendments. Here are some amendments that need instant pruning or decapitation: The 16th amendment allowing the federal government to collect income tax. If that were abolished, so would Obamacare, according to Chief Justice John Roberts. The 17th amendment establishing the direct election of United States senators. The Founders were correct in...
  • Where are they and why aren't they there ?

    08/24/2013 1:49:50 PM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 36 replies
    I have been watching and thoroughly enjoying the Little League Championship games. If I could re-live any of my years, it would be the years my son was playing Little League. Baseball is such a great game to learn sportsmanship, values, and life lessons. That is why it is so sad to see so very few Black children playing in these Little League games. In the 2013 U.S. championship game about to start, California has two Black players and Connecticut doesn't have any. Where are the Black kids in Little League, and why aren't they there? They aren't there because...

    I watched The Bridge last night on Fox TV. Half of the show was in Spanish with English subtitles. Another sign of the times. Fox and Murdoch are gearing up to all the new incoming aliens once immigration reform is passed. They can probably give them a free TV as they cross the border.
  • Why Shulman and not Colleen Kelly?

    The Beaufort Observer ^ | May 18, 2013 | Brant Clifton
    It is Colleen Kelly, the head of the Treasury Employee Union (NTEU), who met with Obama on March 31, 2010. That is on the record. IRS Commissioner, Doug Shulman, went to the White House 157 times, but there is no record of him meeting with the president. When asked by CNSNews, "Did the Treasury union chief talk about tea parties during her meeting with the president on March 30, 2010?," press secretary Jay Carney did not reply. On the very next day, April 1, 2010, the IRS new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, directed the Sensitive Case Report on the Tea...

    Real Clear Politics
    Why the "I Am A Black Man" speech by the president ? Was it a simple invocation to young Black graduates or the president circling the wagons and rallying his troops? It was disguised as a Brother Souljah moment when the occupant of the White House gave a speech at Morehouse College last weekend telling young Black men to live a responsible life and stop making bad choices. He spoke about the "special obligation" he feels as a Black man to help those left behind. The president praised Martin Luther King and spoke of how the civil rights movement cleared...

    I have friends and relatives in Germany that just do not know the true story of Barack Hussein Obama. I go on Amazon.de and the only books about the guy are all lavish encomiums, books from the left, or his own two books written by Bill Ayres. Are there any conservative books written in German that anyone knows about? Is there a German version of Dinesh d"Souza's film or book? Appreciate your help. Thanks
  • New Social Class Coming

    02/01/2013 9:44:10 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 6 replies
    Japan has recognized a new class of citizenry. They exist here too in great abundance. After the Fascist-Progressives get all the money they can get from the middle class and the rich and wealthy and still find themselves wanting, this is the next target group. They won't even have to tax them to fill their coffers. In just three years, Japan will reap 74 billion from them. But Japan has a labor shortage problem, and this could also be a way to solve that problem. It is also preferable to raising the minimum wage. So who is this new social/political...

    12/19/2012 7:36:44 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 6 replies
    Charles Schultz was rather shrewd with his cartoon strips of Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown to kick. Nothing encapsulates and mocks better the chicanery of the political processes of our government. Of course Nancy Pelosi is Lucy. Or it could be Harry Reid or Obama or any democrat or media hack. They draw lines in the sand just to draw another when stepped across. The ball will always be yanked on our republican Charlie Browns. Boehner is our Charlie Brown of the moment. Surely, Lucy won’t yank the ball if I propose the same taxes on the rich...

    DO NOTHING Post election musings. I am sick. Sick that this country has sunk so low. Ronald Reagan could not win today against slick Santa. At least he could not win in a presidential year election. There is too much at stake now for the takers in a land of bread and circuses. There are two electorates today: a Presidential electorate and an off-year electorate. The takers are too lazy to come out and vote in the off years. Or they don’t understand its importance. That’s when we win seats in Congress. So I say to Boehner, DO NOTHING. Hey,...

    11/06/2012 5:48:52 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 24 replies
    If anyone has the right to avenge these past 4 years it is us. We are the ones whose livelihood, freedoms, and rights have been raided and ravished. We are the ones who have seen our property values decline and costs of food and gas rise. We are the ones beset by regulation after regulation. We are the ones voting simply to revenge the insanity, lies, and demagoguery of the Obama reign of terror. I am voting to avenge this nation’s sense of entitlement and politically correct culture. I stand today to restore my children’s rights to a debt free...
  • Romney's Mona Lisa Smile

    11/03/2012 10:20:24 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 19 replies
    Romney’s Mona Lisa smile The Italians have words for it; the meaning of that famous smile. The tight lips with the ‘giocondo’ smirk of self-amusement. The ‘sfumato’ smile of blurry ambiguity leaving all to the imagination. But there was little left to the imagination in the Mona Lisa smile of Mitt Romney. It was everywhere in that final debate; that tight smile and warm eyes. The face that never wavered. It was a constant reflection into his opponent’s rage. It softly deflected the opposing aspirant’s mean eyes darting the fiery embers of spent dark coal. The gentle face absorbed the...

    It's 4 a.m. in the morning, and I'm tossing in bed thinking of tonight's presidential debate. Debate zingers are swirling in my dazed head. So now I'm up and doing my bit for the Pajama media. Unlike Reagan, Romney is not known for memorable one-liners. He needs to leave some out there on the debate floor. I'm no wordsmith, but these phrases have been dancing in my head. Tonight, at least one glove has got to come off. It's not enough for Romney to keep mildly saying that Obama is in over his head. I'm just going to throw out...

    Romney is going to be busy fixing the state of the economy, so he is going to need to appoint some Czars. Here are a few to consider along with whom Romney should appoint: An Eric Holder Czar for criminalizing Eric Holder for being Eric Holder. (Rudy Giiulani since Attila the Hun is unavailable) A DOJ Czar for cleaning out all the Black Panthers and commie racist lawyers in the Department of Justice. ( J. Christian Adams ) A Top Secret Control Czar to investigate all the security leaks resulting in the death of overseas operatives. ( Dick Cheney )...

    Akin has got to drop out. His Luddite ideas are an embarrassment. Get him off the ballot so that the Missouri GOP can pick a better candidate than the voters of the state. This mad headless chicken scurrying, firing squad panicking has got to stop. I got a better idea. Let Akin make the Keynote speech at the Republican convention to counter the Keynote rapist at the Democrat convention. Let's say Akin drops out and sacrifices himself to the cause of capturing the Senate for the GOP. Who is this flawless, perfect candidate that's going to replace him? How do...
  • Paul Kengor's book, "The Communist" in bookstores today.

    Paul Kengor's book, "The Communist" about Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis is out in bookstores today. The book is published by Glenn Beck's emporium. There have been other FR articles about Kengor's book, but none of them have this link to his 3 minute video about the book. It's worth a quick look. Obama's speeches are parrot repetitions of Davis's communist orations. Davis thought that monopolies like GM needed to be controlled by the government. He hated big business and the "tentacled" rich men who ran them. He felt all Americans had the right to a "decent home." He wanted...

    "The U.S. Navy's new class of carriers will be the first to go without urinals, a decision made in part to give the service flexibility in accommodating female sailors, the Navy says. The change heralded by the Gerald R. Ford class of carriers – starting with the namesake carrier due in late 2015. Omitting urinals lets the Navy easily switch the designation of any restroom – or head, in naval parlance – from male to female, or vice versa, helping the ship adapt to changing crew compositions over time. Heads will be attached to berthing compartments. Currently, many sailors have...

Dinesh D'Souza went to Kenya to interview George Obama. He was curious as to why the most powerful man on the planet hasn't done anything to help out his younger brother. Obama would do well to heed his younger but wiser brother. "I think he has a family of his own,” George Obama says. “I’m a member of his family, but I’m over-age, so...

    Mark Levin's Radio Show ^ | 7/3/2012 | Mark Levin
    I listened to Mark Levin's show the day before the 4th of July in which he talked about restoring constitutionalism in our three branches of government. It certainly piqued my interest especially in regard to abolishing the 17th amendment and restoring power to the states in appointing senators - a position I've supported for some time. I sent Mr. Levin an email with my small suggestion for improving the sorry state of Congress. I'm also wondering what other Freepers thought of Levin's talk show that day. The following is my email to Dr. Levin. I tried to put a bit...

What will they be reaching for next: mandatory dental care, an extra vacation if you get sick, the Dream Act ? I'm not talking about whittling away at our Bill of Rights or having to buy electric cars and banishing salt and sugar. That they will continue to do. But what will be the next great federal program on their agenda that we will be...
  • The Obsolescent Supreme Court

    06/28/2012 1:45:02 PM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 12 replies
    Justice John Roberts has made the Supreme Court superfluous and obsolescent by obsequiously abdicating its powers to the taxing authority of the U.S.Congress. Freeper Graewoulf has commented that Chief Justice Roberts has "destroyed the boundary between the Judiciary and Legislative branches of our government." My thoughts precisely as I heard the verdict come down today. But it is far worse than that. This new taxing authority will do more than just restructure our economic freedoms and control behaviors. It can fundamentally change the concept of our Constitutional rights. Not only are we becoming Greece; we are becoming Egypt. The new...

    It is amazing to already witness the unraveling of the democrat party. Usually a party waits until after the election to dust itself off and chart its new direction. However, with the month by month downward spiral of bad economic news with the election just months away, the democrats are already warring over its future. Nothing made this clearer than Bill Clinton himself and his DLC wing of the democrat party. DNC vs. DLC. Many of the leaders of the democrat party have realized they can only go so far left before going down the socialist cliff with no hope...

    We all know that Obama re-evolved to his 1996 stance in favor of gay marriage. We also all know that he came out for gay marriage again 12 years later (with a slight devolutionary back-step in 2008 when he felt marriage was a man-woman thing ). We also all know that he did it pure and simple for the money and donors. One out of six of his bundlers are homosexual. I happen to think that Obama knows that coming out openly for gay marriage puts the lid on his election chances. But I also think that after the West...

    I was struck by a comment by one of our Freepers - ClearCase_guy, notably because I've said much the same thing here and there. ClearCase_guy said, "Sometimes I wish the Republicans would put both the economic and social issues on the back burner. We probably need to spend 4 years just HAMMERING the propaganda industry, the media, and the educational establishment. Just expose them all as manipulative liars with no principles of any kind. We aren't going to fix the economic or social problems until the sheeple smarten up and realize how deeply immoral our society has become. " ClearCase...

    Did Obama purposely leave a 'silver' bullet in the Obamacare bill? Or is it more like a returning torpedo? The question is can you have an individual mandate if there is no penalty or fine for not complying with that mandate? In the Obamacare bill there is a penalty for those not purchasing health insurance. But what is the fine if one does not pay this penalty? The answer is nothing. There is no fine. This is common knowledge for a lot of us Freepers. It was mentioned by Eric Bolling on The Five yesterday. I'd like some legal beagle...

    Obama today compared his visionary thinking to that of President Rutherford B. Hayes. Gotta check - ok, he was a republican. Couldn't blame Bush somehow. In his call for the need of alternative energy sources he had to put down President Hayes. Said Obama, "One of my predecessors, President Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone: 'It’s a great invention but who would ever want to use one?'" Obama said. "That's why he's not on Mt. Rushmore." Oh, the inconvenience of actual facts. According to the curator of Hayes' Presidential Center, it turns out President Hayes was right on...

  • Help in finding an old friend

    11/25/2011 9:10:05 AM PST · by A'elian' nation · 19 replies
    Would need some help in finding a friend of my dad that he would like to re-unite with. He hasn't seen this buddy in over 40 years. All we know is that he was in the navy and is old enough to receive social security. Can't find him in Facebook. Would Social Security admin assist in finding someone? Would Veterans Affairs? If they could help what offices should be contacted? Any help from anyone who has ever tried to find someone they want to re-connect with would be really appreciated. Many thanks.

    That wasn't an earthquake. That was just . . . That was just Obama's motorcade passing through. That was just Obama going for a triple-scoop ice cream cone. That was just Michelle dropping her order of french fries. That was just the federal mint prining off another trillion bucks. That was just Obama finding his first shovel ready project. That was just Sarah doing a drill baby drill. That was just the aftershock of over-militarized Guam tipping over. (By the way didn't they just plant MLK's new statue in D.C. which was made in China?) Chinese conspiracy? OK Freepers -...
