    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is stepping up her rhetoric against the “Republican establishment,” who she believes has turned its back on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), commenting that there may already be a third party in American politics. “I dare say we already have a third party. We have the liberal party, the GOP machine, and then we’ve got the good guys,” she told Neil Cavuto on Tuesday on Fox News, while Cruz was crossing the hour and a half mark of speaking on the Senate floor. “That is the third party. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul … Those...

    There has been talk about having a new party, some have called it the Freedom Party. If there were to be a Freedom Party what would be the party platforms?

  • Novel imagines Sarah Palin presidency ("Christian Nation")

    The McCain/Palin ticket lost in 2008, right? Fiction can change that. ”Christian Nation” is a new novel from lawyer Fred Rich that wonders what would happen if the Republican ticket won in 2008. But Rich goes even further than that, plotting a would-be Palin presidency after McCain passes away in the novel. And although it’s fiction, Rich is dead serious about what a Palin presidency would mean for the country. As the title suggest, Rich is concerned about how religious extremists on the right could upend society. “If somebody like Sarah Palin, who holds so firmly to this conviction that...

    This week we’ll celebrate the 237th anniversary of our independence. But are we a free people? SCOTUS made an ill-conceived ruling believing the choice of sexual behavior should trump the peoples’s referendum. We are free to love anyone or anything we desire in America, but that does not correlate to rights beyond the unalienable ones Jefferson articulated 237 years ago. In California we have a state-funded grant for the Los Angeles Unified School District to abuse the concept of public education by turning public schools into indoctrination factories, forcing children to spout the joys of Obamacare. The district listed as...

    Lately, I’ve been finding that I’m increasing finding myself further and further from identifying with the Republican Party as well. I feel like I would need to hold my nose to pull the lever for almost everyone with an (R) after their name. I can count on one hand the Republicans that I identify with: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Ron Paul (most of the time), Alan West (most of the time), and Sarah Palin. Palin has signaled that she is receptive to starting a new party if the GOP continues to abandon its principles. Once-relied upon stalwarts of conservative ideals...

    Today, one 911 mom, who lost her son, said to me of our 911 Freedom Rally, "I am looking forward to the rally. It is a place we can be free to really remember the who, why, when and where of 9-11. The morning ceremony is devoid of any meaning." The NY Post is reporting that many 911 family members have not been invited to the official ceremonies of 911. This is just monstrous. First it was clergy, then 911 first responders who were excluded from the official ceremonies -- now it's the victims' families. Mayor Gloomberg not only lost...

    Brooklyn Councilman Charles Barron said Monday his new minority-led Freedom Party got enough signatures to get on the statewide ballot against the Democrats' all-white ticket."No longer are we going to allow the Democrats to take the black vote for granted," Barron said at a rally on the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall, in front of stacks of petitions with what he said were 43,500 signatures needed to gain entry on the ballot this fall."This party is a black- and Latino-led party that is open up to everybody," said Barron. "If we take care of blacks and Latinos, the state...

    The Dutch politician Geert Wilders' Freedom Party won 17 percent of the vote in Friday's European Union parliamentary elections in the Netherlands. Wilders, who has compared the Koran to Mein Kampf, campaigned on an anti-EU and anti-immigrant platform. The Freedom Party finished second to the governing Christian Democratic Alliance, which garnered 19.9% of the vote. The campaign in the Netherlands was a "debate between those opposed to the EU and those in favor," Dr. Ronny Naftaniel, head of the pro-Israel organization Center Information and Documentation on Israel in the Netherlands, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday. Naftaniel, a Dutch Jew...

    Strange Bedfellows: Austrian Rabbi Enlists Far Right in Fight With Jewish EstablishmentBy George Jahn Associated Press Writer Published: Jun 19, 2005 VIENNA, Austria (AP) - Even for one of Europe's quirkier capitals, it was a bizarre spectacle - a far-right politician who has questioned the existence of Nazi gas chambers noshing on salmon pate at a bar mitzvah and tapping his foot to wildly pulsating Hasidic music. "The rabbi is a good friend of mine," John Gudenus said of his host. "Why, we've even had him over to the house!" They make strange bedfellows from opposite fringes - ultra-rightists and...

    VIENNA, Austria (AP) - Joerg Haider's once-powerful Freedom Party - long associated with Austria's far right fringe - purged most rightists from senior positions Tuesday in an attempt to stem its descent from success to political oblivion. Haider, who is no longer the party head but remains its most influential figure, also announced that the party would be formally relaunched in an attempt to end a string of disastrous election showings. Ursula Haubner, the party head and Haider's sister, said the move to remove most rightists from positions of influence reflected the party's decision "to orient itself in new directions...

    Two far-right Austrian Freedom Party members have fought a duel after one claimed the other had offended the honour of party mentor Joerg Haider. Heinz-Christian Strache, 35, gave an impassioned speech to the party faithful in Salzburg where he compared Haider to a "crazy dog" barking at the moon. But Salzburg doctor Roman Strassl, also 35, confronted Strache afterwards - and the pair had a heated exchange with both refusing to back down. The row continued for several hours - and only ended when Strache threw down the gauntlet at 2am - demanding they use swords to settle the debate...

    Europe's far right parties are considering forming a pan-European movement. Filip Dewinter, the leader of an extremist separatist party in Belgium, told the Vienna-based News on Thursday that they were considering creating an extreme right grouping in the European Parliament. This would encompass Austria's Freedom Party, Italy's Lega Nord, France's National Front, the Dutch New Right Party and Dewinter's own Vlaams Belang - all strongly anti-immigrant. Dewinter said he is considering Jörg Haider, leader of Austria's Freedom Party, to be the head of the movement. "I've had several talks with Jörg Haider and have the feeling that he's interested in...

  • Joerg Haider: "US may have arrested Saddam's double" ["capture is a scam"; Israel is a dictatorship]

    Vienna, Dec 17 - US troops may have arrested a double of Saddam Hussein and DNA testing does not prove conclusively that they have captured the Iraqi dictator, Austrian Freedom Party ex-leader Joerg Haider said late Tuesday. Calling the capture "slapstick" and a "real scam", Haider told national ORF television: "This may be one of his many doubles." "The saliva tests they did mean nothing if they did not have earlier specimens to which they could compare it," the former leader of Austria's far-right Freedom Party added. Haider visited Saddam in Baghdad in February 2002 and caused a stir on...

    Right-wing tide surges straight to the heart of EuropeBy Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in Brussels (Filed: 22/04/2002) EUROPE'S rising Right-wing tide swept into the core countries of the European Union yesterday, rocking Germany's Social Democrats and threatening France's socialist government.Over the last two years, Austria, Italy, Denmark, Portugal, and Norway have all turned against the centre-Left consensus that had such a lock on Europe during the 1990s, opting instead for law-and-order parties promising tax cuts, deregulation, and a much tougher line on immigrants.But the pace is now quickening as ever more radical figures build mass support, often outflanking the conventional centre-Right...
