    Nestled among the 12 titles and 880 pages of the $2.2 trillion “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020,” approved unanimously by the Senate late March 25, is a paragraph sending $400 million to state governments “to help prepare for the 2020 election.” The provision’s senatorial proponents promise it will enable state election officials to increase the ability of citizens nationwide “to vote by mail, expand early voting and online registration, and increase the safety of voting in-person by providing additional voting facilities and more poll-workers,” according to a summary prepared by Democratic staff members of the Senate...

    First off, the last part of my title. I lost my pay. I didn't lose my job, but my investors pulled their money from my pay to pay someone else they felt was more important to pay. Either way, I'll deal with that later. But here is the skinny: I had to take an emergency flight to say goodbye to my father, who I am very close to. He's got Cancer and it will take him soon. The chemo has ravaged his mind and his body and I was called across the country to say goodbye. Upon my return, my...

    Special Edition04-15-19 ***After Action Report*** I just got back from the demonstration in Fresno, California. It wasn't a Free Republic event, but was sponsored by the local Tea Party and Free Republic was notified at the last minute, so Freeper attendence was small. I counted about 5-6 Freepers. I'd say the total attendance was 50-60 people total, maybe a bit more. There was a Tea Party board member with a sound system and microphone, a guy and his buddy from some web site that I forgot the name of and he was live-streaming the event somewhere on the internet....

The original post is first and then I answer a couple reader questions at the end. -Greg While I was at the Rangemaster Tactical Conference last weekend, I attended a class called “Surviving Extreme Events” taught by John Holschen.

  • Did the President cave on the Continuing Resolution?

    I could use a little help here from some of our Constitutional Scholars. When President Trump signed a Continuing Resolution yesterday for another 21 days for budgeting the entire Federal Government, did he do so willingly or was his decision forced upon him? I believe the President has the can return the Bill to Congress, with comments as to why he won't sign it. (VETO) Has to happen within 10 days excluding Sundays. To sustain his VETO it takes a 2/3's vote from both houses (Representatives and Senate). Otherwise the VETO is over-ridden and the bill becomes law. Here comes...

    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew...

    FarmerDean, who has no physical right to be alive according to natural law, will be going home under GOD’S law in a few weeks. After over a YEAR fighting for his life from a botched cancer surgery of his intestines and MANY MANY nights where I thought he was going to God, the farmer/man/beast is going home and will once again one day heap 50 pound bails on a truck for hours at 66!! I just got a hernia thinking about it!!! :) God doesn’t always give us what we ask for and we can’t and aren’t supposed to understand...
  • The small-town social media approach

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Moniek James
    Part of the allure of a small town is that everybody knows everybody. For a business owner in a small town, though, this doesn’t mean we should take for granted that everybody in the community knows us. We still need to advertise and get the word out about our products and services, and social media is my preferred tool to do this. Many small-town business owners shy away from social media because it seems too big, and it seems like there are way too many users and too much going on. Facebook has more than 2 billion monthly active users,...

    Today we will ponder America, a country, even a civilization, that existed long ago where the United States is today, but bore little resemblance to it. It will be like studying cave drawings, or Sargon of Akkad. Pay attention. The is original source material of historical importance. I was there, in America: Athens, Alabama, at age twelve. Athens was small and Southern, drowsy in summer, kind of comfortable feeling, not much concerned with the outside world. It left the world alone and the world left it alone. In those days, people in a lot of places figured this was pretty...

    We already know that Donald Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell is a DC insider. She was photographed with Barack Obama’s closest advisor Valerie Jarrett. She has also been captured with Huma Abedin at two different social functions that took place over four years apart. It’s now been learned that Powell is also quite comfortable around Hillary Clinton’s senior advisor and political hit man Philippe Reines. Described as Hillary’s “attack dog”, Reines likely held the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications at the time he was photographed with Powell.
