  • Arpaio press conference: Evidence of fraud. No refute from the Obama White House.

    07/17/2012 11:06:27 PM PDT · by dragnet2 · 104 replies ^ | 7/17/2012 | dragnet2
    A Sheriff of a major county in the United States conducted a thorough and formal investigation regarding President Obama's birth record. They provided substantial evidence today in a public news conference saying the birth record is fraudulent. Yet not a word from the White House. In fact in the news conference Sheriff Arpaio stated: "President Barack Obama's birth certificate is definitely fraudulent", which they then provided detailed evidence. How is it possible, with all the resources available to the White House, including an army of attorneys, advisers, researchers and spokespersons, not a single word refuting the evidence laid out today?...
  • Status of Sheriff Arpaio's Press Conference?

    Does anyone have an update as to what transpired at Sheriff Joe Arpaio's press conference on his Possee's investigations into Obama's (lack of) elegibility to serve as POTUS? If I understand correctly, the conference should be in its second hour by now. So far, all I have been able to see at WND.COM is a blank (black) streaming feed with no audio, and the last time I tried, I got "Error 503 Service Unavailable" I did manage to see a few comments -- mostly griping about the lousy streaming feed and the lack of audio. Whether you, as a FReeper,...

    As Alan Keyes wrote the other day, you cannot fight evil with evil. If you haven't read it, do yourself a favor: A Choice Between Satan and Beelzebub (FR thread) Brief excerpt: I grieve deeply as I contemplate the fact that millions of Americans are letting themselves be caught in this diabolical snare. As I tried to point out in 2008, the lesser of evils is still evil. No matter how such an election turns out, people content to choose between Satan and Beelzebub have made clear their willingness to let things go to hell. Moreover, the nature of their...
  • A man who can justify mass murder of innocent human life should be president?

    I'm sorry folks, but a man who can justify and rationalize in his own mind the wholesale slaughter of innocent human life can justify any kind of evil whatsoever. And he has. He's justified homosexual marriage, homosexuals in the Boy Scouts, homosexuals in the military. That homosexual couples should be able to adopt children. He's justified that guns are dangerous and should be banned. That free citizens should be forced by the government to purchase insurance contracts against their will or face stiff penalties or taxes. That mandated forced socialized healthcare is a good thing. That abortion should be safe...
  • If the Republican Convention Could be Opened, Who Would You Replace Romney With?

    Without going to great lengths to establish that there is continuing dissatisfaction with Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee for the presidency, let us play the game of "What If". What if the convention were to somehow become open? Who would you want to be the Republican nominee? If we were to point out that Romney did not win the support of two-thirds of the primary voters, the reply would be that the process is engineered that way. When there are more than two candidates, one shouldn't be surprised to see a candidate polling much more than a third. That...

    So here's the deal. My wife and I have been long time volunteers at the local GOP hq. and were offered a couple of tickets for a Romney campaign appearance in our county tomorrow. The details are at the link.I was not going to miss work, but my wife wanted to go in the worst way and then I found out this is going to be a fairly small gathering, 200 people or so.While not guaranteed, of course, there is at least a decent chance we will have the opportunity to ask him at least one question or give out...

    Rove, Romney and the GOP-e loathe pro-life Reagan conservatism, loathe the small government tea party and set out to destroy them both. I hate to admit it, but they are succeeding. As I see staunch pro-life conservatives and tea party patriots folding their small government tents in favor of Romney's GOP-e progressive, big government big tent, I can't help but see not only the end of the tea party, but the end of pro-life, pro-liberty conservatism within the Republican party. And if we cannot quickly recover, the end of liberty in America. America's great experiment in self-government by believers in...

    King Herod heard about this, for Jesus’ name had become well known. Some were sayng, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him. Mark 6:14 So now the commie libs are having to fake outrage about job outsourcing. Most of us understand libs like Ohbummer who never worked in the private sector, have no idea why jobs would leave America when he is running them out. It is the same reason jobs are leaving the Soviet paradise of Chicago for Indiana, WI and Ohio, to lower their tax...

    The report which Penn State commissioned regarding the Jerry Sandusky scandal has been released. The findings of the commission, chaired by former FBI Director Louie Freeh, are a scathing indictment of the processes and procedures used by Penn State to deal with the allegations of sexual molestation by a football coach.Little is revealed in the report which was not already generally known, but the tone and breadth of the reporting was startlingly harsh. No one is immune from criticism ranging from the president of the university all the way down to a janitor who witnessed an episode of sexual molestation...

    The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to WORK and gained five more. Matt 25:16 The only good news in the economy is gas prices are going down. Now we know who will take credit for that but it is really a reflection on how bad the economy is. Whenever gas prices are dropping we never hear about those evil oil speculators or greedy oil companies, no we will hear how wonderful our great leader is when it is in spite of him. Gas prices never should have gone as high as...

    From the diseased mind of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius: (Emphasis added where appropriate. Snarky comments from me are in [brackets].) *** "Every American deserves to have a clean, safe and healthy environment. Today, we understand better than ever before that our health is not only dependent on what happens in the doctor’s office but is determined by the air we breathe, the water we drink and the communities we call home. Over the past two years, the Administration and our agency have taken unprecedented steps to ensure strong protection from environmental and health hazards for all Americans. There’s nothing more...

    Where have all the workers gone? Since Barack 0bama has taken office, the population of the United States has grown by over nine million people, yet according to the United States Department of Labor, the labor force has only grown by only 1.5 million over the same period. The fact is, the DOL's Bureau of Labor Statistics does not do accurate counting of unemployed people. It's numbers do not come from the State's unemployment offices. All of it's numbers are calculated from a sample survey conducted each month that includes less than 0.02% of our country's population. How valid are...

He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ Matt 21:28 The forest fires in Colorado represent another failure of Central Planning in all of its glory. Just as every natural or manmade disaster proves over and over, this one shows the absolute folly of the Forest Service.

But I became an American, slowly and decisively over my entire life, and these were but a few of my moments of decision; When my 92 year old great Grandfather, an immigrant for the bowels of depravity in Italy stood in a crowded church basement and took the pledge of allegiance to his beloved country to finally become a citizen, after struggling to overcome illiteracy and poverty, and raise a fine and honorable family.

    So many "conservative" pundits have been polishing the turd that emanated from the SCOTUS on Obamacare, that I thought I'd have a go at it. Let us leave aside the notion that somehow this will energize the conservative base, and result in a thorough trouncing of all Democrats at the polls in November. After all, now that one of the fundamental tenets in the social contract between government and her citizens - that the government cannot force commerce -- has been shredded, how does it matter? Yes, our side may prevail, but can anyone guarentee that is a permanent condition?...

    On June 28, 2012, many in our nation celebrated our newest federal holiday: Dependence Day. With the declaration that the ironically named Affordable Healthcare Act is constitutional and, therefore, above further legal review on the same day, our nation has changed course away from the direction set forth by our founding fathers. Two hundred and thirty-six years earlier, these great men proclaimed that the American Colonies deserved freedom from oppression by the distant English king and his domestic supporters. Their words formed the bedrock of our nation and culture, providing the inspiration for our people to rise up and unite...

She complained constantly to her mother that her stomach hurt. When Stephanie Little Light took her daughter to the Indian Health Service clinic in this wind-swept and remote corner of Montana, they told her the 5-year-old was depressed. Ta'Shon's pain rapidly worsened and she visited the clinic about 10 more times over several months, before her lung collapsed and she was airlifted to...
