    If any congressperson checks in to Free Republic... To Congress: How much worse does it have to be before your dignity comes forth? How much worse does it have to become for you to do something? You are in the seat of the only authority left in our nation, and I can count on one hand the persons who are trying to reverse the total destruction of our United States! The rest of you... what are you doing?
  • Only One Country Ready to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, According to Scientists

    Brazilian mathematicians considering humanity's chances of surviving a zombie uprising have calculated that to have any sort of shot, civilians would need help from a fairly large standing army. Their estimates led them to a surprising conclusion. According to the researchers' standard model, which requires a minimum of 47 soldiers per 1,000 citizens for a country to survive if the dead were to rise, only North Korea, which has 47.4 military personnel per 1,000 residents, has any sort of chance of surviving a zombie outbreak.
  • How I Fell in Love With Country Music

    My life didn’t change when I saw the duelling banjos scene in Deliverance, but it was the first time I realised there was more to country music than the Benny Hill theme tuney name is Martin and I love country music. There you go, I’ve said it. It’s not always an easy thing to do. When the subject comes up, I get a funny sort of look. Once you spring the c-word on people, you can see they’re thinking: “[darn], this bloke’s weird. Does he dress up like a cowboy at home and do those funny dances?” Sometimes people like...
  • Justin Timberlake is rebranding as a white man

    Authenticity is quite marketable now, and for white pop stars that means shifting away from the hip-hop and R&B-influenced sounds that made them famous, and toward the sounds of Southern and country rock. For Timberlake, the pivot should be sonically natural: Originally hailing from Tennessee, Timberlake has never been shy about celebrating his Southern origins.

  • CMA Lifts Restrictions on Red Carpet Journalists Questions about ‘Gun Rights’ after Backlash

    The Country Music Association has rescinded restrictions on the types of questions that can be asked by red-carpet journalists at this year’s CMA Awards after initially announcing this week that media would be prohibited from asking country music stars questions about the Las Vegas shooting massacre, gun rights, and politics. The initial media guidelines for the upcoming CMA Awards had made it clear that red carpet reporters were not to ask country music singers about their position on “gun rights.” Journalists who ignored the guidelines would have their media credentials revoked. According to Rolling Stone, other topics were off limits...

    **SNIP** That recruitment process will continue with the California National Party’s third annual convention, which takes place on Sunday at the Betty Ong Rec Center in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who has been at the forefront of a campaign to qualify a California secession initiative, is the keynote speaker. Attendees will also revise the party’s progressive official platform, which in addition to the contention that the Golden State is overtaxed and underrepresented on the national stage, advocates single-payer universal healthcare, an overhaul of policing and criminal justice policies, high-speed rail and a path to citizenship for undocumented...

Well, I went online and found a great station and wanted to share it with y'all. I'm a bookmark hoarder so I thought I'd ask for your help for when I need to listen to some good stuff. OutlawNation has a perfect variety.
  • President Trump will commit to improving internet access in rural areas

    President Donald Trump will commit on Wednesday to improving internet access in the country’s hardest-to-reach rural areas as a part of his forthcoming push to improve the nation’s infrastructure. Trump will outline his pledge during a speech in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, shortly after visiting Kirkwood Community College, which specializes in fields like precision agriculture. In the eyes of the White House, farmers can’t use emerging big data tools that track crops in real time without faster, more reliable broadband internet service — so the Trump administration intends to tackle that challenge as part of its campaign to upgrade the country’s...

    God Bless America! Yesterday was the 55th anniversary of General Douglas MacArthur’s famed “Duty, Honor, Country” speech that he delivered to the Corps of Cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, on May 12, 1962. This is considered one of the great speeches in American history. Even if you have read it before, please take time again to listen to the audio and follow along with the text (link below), as it is timely considering our U.S. Military is currently engaged in serious national defense of our country …. throughout the world.

    I thank God every day for President Trump and pray for his continuing success. Had Trump not entered the race, the GOPe would have delivered the nomination to Jeb Bush and then Her Royal Heinous Hillary would be sitting in the White House today. Those who think that doesn't make any difference whatsoever are perfectly free to post somewhere else. God bless President Trump. God bless America.

    If you don’t fight to preserve your country, if you don’t stop listening to the brainwashing from schools and the MSM, how long is it going to be, young know-it-alls, before these “refugees” colonize you and your “social justice” narrative? I can sleep better at night now that the specter of global communism has temporarily dissipated from our America with the election and confirmation by the Electoral College of our 45th president, Donald J. Trump. One cannot imagine my temporary relief and inner peace, not having to hear Hillary’s hectoring voice, giving us lectures on social justice, equality, racism, bigotry,...

    In 2000, Al Gore narrowly won the popular vote, but carried fewer than 700 counties. In 2012, President Obama squeezed even more advantage from the biggest places: He carried 86 of the nation’s 100 largest counties (including the District of Columbia), winning them by nearly 12 million votes combined. That allowed him to win comfortably, although he carried only about 600 of the remaining 3,000 counties, and lost them by nearly 7 million votes combined. This year, Hillary Clinton pushed that model just past the breaking point. Pending final results, she now leads in 88 of the nation’s 100 largest...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the combatants in America's long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning - sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other. Advocates of LGBT rights and abortion rights now fear setbacks instead of further gains. But the outcome emboldened the anti-abortion movement and breathed new life into the religious right's campaign for broad exemptions from same-sex marriage and other laws. Kelly Shackelford, head of First Liberty Institute, a legal group that specializes in religious freedom cases, said that, for his cause, the environment will transform from "brutal" under...

    It is extremely clear to all of us who have followed the politics of the the Democrats, the GOP and the Clintons since John F. Kennedy that Washington D.C. has become the biggest center of corruption of all time in the history of our country. Obama was proven to be the worst President in history in the fact that he has purposefully chosen to do everything he can to transform America into a 3rd World country because of his hatred for America. We are currently faced with electing Hillary Clinton, who has as her qualifications of 30 years of lying,...
