    We're 13 days into the current FReepathon, and we've managed to raise 13 percent of what we need to survive this quarter. At this rate, this fundraiser will end 10 days into the NEXT FReepathon. Really? One of the top conservative websites on the internet and we can't raise more than 1 per cent per day? This scares me. Going into the coming election cycle, we need to be well funded, not wondering if we are even going to be around for election night, 2016. If this doesn't scare YOU, well, it should.

          WORD POWER!! During the invasion of Salerno, Allied forces employed propaganda on a scale they had never tried before. Artillery was used to fire shells, each containing thousands of leaflets, encouraging the Germans to surrender and promising them humane treatment if they did. The shells would open about 300 feet in the air and rain down the leaflets on German troops. One British Major made no secret of his anger at having to fire leaflets at the enemy instead of high explosives. In a short while, however, he changed his mind. For days his men had...

It's hot, you're sweaty and longing for some relief from the heat, aren't you? And while thinking about winter, you're probably also dreaming of all those snowy nights of Christmas celebrations?

          EXAMINING THE FOUNDATION It was back in 1962, I'm told, when cracks began to appear in the 42nd story of a very expensive high-rise in Hong Kong. It had already withstood numerous typhoons. And there was no ready explanation for the cracks' sudden appearance. Yet there they were. Obviously, there had to be a problem somewhere. So a team of architects and structural engineers was called in to ferret out the cause. Finally, one determined engineer stumbled upon the reason as he was prowling around the foundations deep in the basement. When he tapped the plaster,...

    Free Republic is and will remain a pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site. Our constitution took a couple big hits this week, but there is no way we should surrender or give up the fight. America is and always has been a Judeo-Christian nation. We believe our unalienable rights are bestowed upon us by our Creator and cannot be lawfully removed by a godless socialist/fascist government gone awry. We will fight on. As long as God gives me breath, I will fight to defend our Constitution. As the man said, give me liberty or give me death!

    To the memory of Free Republic’s “Kenny Bunk.” Continue to love each other like brothers, and remember always to welcome strangers, for by doing this, some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13, 1-2 Our FRiend Kenny Bunk passed away this weekend. He had many compatriots and admirers here, and so I thought I would tell you a little more about him, in order that you might in a small way celebrate his life as I do. Kenny knew the classics (or the western canon, generally) inside and out, and was a focused, passionate student of ancient and...
