    I see some NeverTrump Freepers are back, posting articles almost like clockwork. Is this some paid trolling going on? Is it some psych-op for the GOPe Uniparty? Using FR as a place to foment conflict/hone the Establishment's arguments against Trump and real conservatives and/or Christians? No one has the time to be posting as many articles in a day these people are posting without getting paid. Sorry. I think it's an "op" against FR.

    J.K. Rowling said she thinks Donald Trump guarantees her free speech. (Photo: Ben Pruchnie/Getty Images) [dcquiz] During the Pen Literary Awards Gala in New York City Monday night, the author of the “Harry Potter” novels talked about how the Republican presidential candidate has exercised his freedom of speech. (RELATED: Johnny Depp: Donald Trump Will Be The Last U.S. President) “I find almost everything that Mr. Trump says objectionable,” Rowling said. “I consider him offensive and bigoted.

    HUDSON, N.H. — Ted Cruz on Tuesday went further than ever in needling Donald Trump, suggesting Democrats are behind the billionaire's questions about his citizenship. Speaking with reporters after a rally here, the U.S. senator from Texas was asked what he thought of Trump citing Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe's analysis that Cruz might be ineligible to be president. Trump has pounced on Cruz's Canadian birth to cast doubt on whether he is a natural-born citizen.“I will say it is more than a little strange to see Donald relying on as authoritative a liberal, left-wing, judicial activist Harvard law professor who is a...

    Some are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery. Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s Republican governor, came out last Thursday and blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state. The governor called a news conference and didn’t mince words. “We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorist to come into South Carolina,” Haley said. “We are not going to allow that kind of threat, we are not going to allow that kind of character to come in. ...

    President Barack Obama has quietly handed out an extra 5.46 million work permits for non-immigrant foreigners who arrived as tourists, students, illegal immigrants or other types of migrants since 2009, according to federal documents released by a Freedom of Information Act request. “The executive branch is operating a huge parallel work-authorization system outside the bounds of the [immigration] laws and limits written by Congress [and which] inevitably reduces job opportunities for Americans,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, while filed the FOIA request. “The true magnitude of how often he has evaded the limits...

In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.” The “resolution in support of drop the I-word campaign” was approved 18 to 0 with one abstention on Oct. 30, according to a copy of the meeting’s minutes obtained by The College Fix.

    It’s just one tweet, but the sheer mendacity requires its own post. With the media finally in “now it can be told” mode since Obamacare passed and President Obama was reelected, pretty much everyone is admitting what all of us knew four years ago— that no, not everyone would be able to keep their plans if they liked their plans. And, yes, the Obama administration knew it just as sure as its critics did. It was a lie and an obvious one, but the administration, much of the media, and Obamacare supporters happily acted as if it were true and...

But there’s been a lot of silence over the past year, with the exception of a couple of diehard, truth-seeking individuals and websites. That might change soon, according to the lead investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse in Arizona, which was assigned to do a thorough investigation...

"My suspicion is that this whole critique has to do with the fact that I don’t go to a lot of Washington parties and, as a consequence, the Washington press corps maybe just doesn’t feel like I’m in the mix enough with them, and they figure, well, if I’m not spending time with them, I must be cold and...

"All I can say," says Daniels of 042-68-4425, "is that it's phony and [Obama] has been using it, with it first appearing on his Selective Service document in 1980." Daniels sent me a copy of the hand-written application of the individual who held the number immediately before Obama's, 042-68-4424. The applicant, Thomas Wood, died at age 19, which is why his information is available.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb 12 (Reuters) - California's Republican loyalists said on Saturday they are ready to rally behind Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's ambitious political agenda that includes ballot measures Democrats vow to defeat. Republicans meeting at the party's state convention in Sacramento said they will eagerly fight by Schwarzenegger's side if he asks voters to support this year's agenda through ballot measures, a sharp contrast to a September convention when party officials feared key conservative members would not embrace the socially moderate Hollywood icon. But Schwarzenegger has in recent public appearances rarely missed an opportunity to stress he stands with conservatives...

    NEW YORK (AP) - George Soros' dream is President Bush losing in November - and so far, the billionaire philanthropist has donated nearly $13 million to independent groups that also want to turn that vision into reality. "I'm merely putting my money where my mouth is," Soros told The Associated Press. After surviving the Nazi occupation of his native Hungary and giving away billions of his self-made fortune to charitable causes, Soros is entering national politics in a big way for the first time. He says he is too disturbed by Bush's policies to do nothing. "This is not a...

    U.S. Ends Foreigner Registration Program By SUZANNE GAMBOA, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - The government is scrapping a rule imposed after the Sept. 11 attacks that required men and boys from countries with suspected links to terrorism to register multiple times with U.S. officials. The rule forced tens of thousands of Middle Easterners and others visiting America to provide personal information to government officials. Asa Hutchinson, the Homeland Security Department's undersecretary for border and transportation security, said a new registration system that will apply to more foreigners will be in place next month, making the current program unnecessary. The program...

    It did not appear to have been covered today but, yesterday, February 4, 2003, the state of Texas executed the murderer John Elliot. He was the 7th evil doer that Texas has disposed of so far this year.Elliot's case brought out the usual leftest whackos protesting his punishment. These whackos always pick some sort of particular fact in the murderer's makeup on which to base a claim that he should not be executed. "He was under age18 when him murdered all those people," "he is border line retarded," "he has found religion and is a different person," and "the jury...
