  • Ban your EarBuds and Head phones in public

    Been telling folks lately to be aware. Take out those ear plugs so you can hear whats going on around you. God gave us ears to hear dangers along with all the other sound waves. Look at the gym for instance. If Abdul came in blazing how long would it take for 90% to hear it. It would be too long and too late. Told the kids, keep your ears open these days you may hear danger b4 you see it.
  • Hillary Clinton's Huge Mistake at the Debate: She Lied About TPP Bad Trade Deal with Asia

    We can discuss the polls to determine the victor from last night, and we'd be left with a huge number that say Trump won and a few that say Clinton won. Or, we could look at little, non-scientific groups that networks gather called Ďfocus groupsí and we can wonder how any American doesn't realize that a dozen people isn't even vaguely representative of the 320 million Americans. Americans aren't that stupid. Sadly, the media thinks we are. We can look a demeanor, and we'll note the deer-in-the-headlights look of Clinton for the first two-thirds of the debate, or we'll note...

    Paul Rosenzweig [2nd Panel witness] and other sources | self -- Free Republic Current News
    One expert witness, Paul Rosenzweig, predicts fireworks during the First Panel: "I will be testifying as well, but on the second panelóthe fireworks will be on the first panel, I'm sure." The first panel will include many in favor of multinational oversight for ICANN, and the questioning will likely get hot. While many in congress trust President Obama's plan, Paul Rosenzweig noted: "The Chairmen of the four relevant committees (Senate and House, Judiciary and Commerce), however, have called for the administration to reconsider its decision." ** Get that -- ALL FOUR chairmen [who are most informed about the controversy], and...
  • Why the Dems are Stuck with Cankles

    There is a great deal of consternation among both Democrats and Republicans tonight over the health condition of Cankles. There are (unverified) reports that the DNC is holding an "emergency meeting" to look into replacing her if her health deteriorates. Many Republicans fear a bait and switch with Joe Bite-me, thinking he would be a tougher candidate. I don't think so, but assume the Dems WANT to do this in the first place. There are many, many reasons why it's just impossible and/or so suicidally impractical they will drop the idea. 1) Early voting has already begun in 26 states...

    Trump set more than one record during the primary season. The most talked about is his earning more primary votes than any other candidate in the history of the republican primary system. Trump excelled in another category as well. He spent far less than any of his major opponents. It should be noted that not every dollar of spending is for advertising, but it is a significant part of total spending for most candidates. Numerous articles were written on Jeb Bush's scorched earth TV campaign that spent tens of millions and yielded so little in terms of results. During that...

    Opinion ^ | 15 Jun 16 | Xzins
    Bill O'Reilly, cable news rating king, called for America to get rid of assault weapons. Applying a fair self-assessment, O'Reilly stated that he wasn't very knowledgeable about weapons, so he didn't want to get into distinctions. At one point he was hyperbolic, saying that Americans shouldn't have mortars and a few other battlefield weapons systems. Sadly, O'Reilly doesn't seem to realize that the Orlando shooter did not use an assault rifle, a weapon that is characterized for the most part by its having an automatic mode. Latest reports are saying the murderer in Orlando used a Sig Sauer, a weapon...
  • A Call to Reality and Cruz's Chances EVEN On a Second Ballot

    Opinion ^ | 20 Apr 16 | Xzins
    Most news services are reporting that Ted Cruz currently has 559 delegates after gaining zero in yesterday's New York primary. With 1237 the goal, it is clear that Ted Cruz can no longer win on the first ballot at the Republican Convention. He would need 678 delegates to reach 1237 and only 620 delegates remain. Obviously, that is impossible. That would be 109% of what remains, and that is a mathematical impossibility. A good guess of how many additional delegates Cruz will gain between now and June 8 is 209. That would give him a total of 768 going into...
  • Cruz Should Drop Out Since He Got Only 43.8% in Texas!

    Sometimes it is amazing what comes out of the mouthpiece of a campaign. Ted Cruz's challenged campaign manager is proclaiming that Trump should drop out if he cannot get over 50% in New York. In that case, Cruz should drop out because he only got 43.8% in Texas. The opposition vote in Texas was 27% for Trump, but then 18, 4, and 4, for Rubio, Kasich, and Carson respectively. IOW, a non-Trump vote of only 26%. Kasich is running second in New York, and Cruz had 18% at last count, well below the non-Trump vote in Texas of 26%. In...

    Trump won the debate with Kasich tied. Trump prevails because he was forced to debate 3 moderators who had coordinated with Mitt Romney, who had done his share a few brief hours earlier. He also had to debate 3 candidates, one of whom was independent and the other 2 clearly hitching to the Romney bandwagon. 1. Trump A- 2. Kasich A- 3. Cruz B 4. Rubio - F I. Fox moderators have stated they spend huge amount of time and analysis preparing their questions. Then they got down to business, talking through questions. The moderators have spent weeks writing (and...

The structure was so brutally transparent even the customarily obtuse punditry are having a hard time obfuscating.We have been pointing to the GOPe road-map for over two years. As each tripwire is crossed, the ridiculous justifications of those in denial necessarily increase; but that doesn’t mean we will stop pointing out the strings on the presidential marionette show. Cue yet another audio visual demonstration.Do you see anything...

    Monday is the beginning of National School Choice Week, featuring over 16,000 organized events across the country, an attempt to take on the anti-choice progressive left in America, the Democrat Party that prefers a government monopoly in the nation's school system in order to continue brainwashing children with their godless and anti-American Marxist ideology. Constitutional conservative presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a long proponent of school choice in America, came out with a video both celebrating and supporting school choice on Monday - calling it the "civil rights issue of the 21st century."...

    1. Lone Wolf Terrorism is Still Terrorism It is a simple matter of remembering to recall that both Al Qaeda and ISIS have called on random muslims to engage in terrorist acts independent of the major terrorist groups. This has been called lone wolf terrorism or ISIS/Al Qaeda inspired terrorism. In any case, it is terrorism. When a triad of battle clad attackers kill 14 and wound even more, it should cause pause. When it's discovered that these muslims had a house that was a virtual bomb lab and weapons armory, that neighbors wondered about clandestine visitors at night, and...

    Rather than rebut the media, let's just post the actual words of Donald Trump, so everyone can compare what the media says versus what Donald Trump actually said. About Iowa Voters: Trump is talking about Carson's story of stabbing his friend. He relates what Carson has written about lunging with a knife to stab his friend when lo and behold it hits the friend's belt instead... and then: "He plunged it (the knife) into the belt, and amazingly the belt stay totally (fine?), and the knife broke --- how stupid are the people of Iowa, how stupid are the people...

    The big winner was Cruz, and the big loser was Bush. See below. Just to get started on the right foot, let's state at the outset that "the moderators" could not be the winners of a national debate. They can certainly be the losers, however, if they impede, if they are biased, or if they are infantile. That describes the CNBC moderators and the first Fox News moderators, Kelly/Wallace/Baier. They were losers. But for moderators to 'win' means we have relegated the issues and the candidates to some kind of back row. Who were the real winners last night? I...

    I am a Progressive Conservative. I base this on the definition of the word "progress". From the Merriam-Webster site: "the process of improving or developing something over a period of time". Among conservatives who follow the news, this word would seem almost a contradiction. They are used to hearing the word associated with liberalism and socialism. It appears those movements have co-opted a perfectly positive word "progressive" with its root word meaning of improvement. My sense is that the average person sees the word "progressive" and thinks "progress". This average person has little connection to secular campuses in which 'progressive'...

    Will the Supreme Court Deal With Reality When It Makes Its Marriage Ruling? Let's be blunt. When a penis is inserted in a vagina there is a good chance that a new human being will result. When a penis is inserted in an anus, there is a passable chance of disease or defect being the result. This is reality and there is no escaping it. Only a real male and a real female can make babies. Put the two sexes together, and there's a good chance of babies showing up. To deal with reality, cultures through all of recorded history...

    Oh, those dastardly illegals. They come into our country, they live off our social safety net, they take our jobs, and they cause all kinds of grief. That's a fair description of many conversations in recent months regarding illegal immigrants. The message is clear: ‚ÄúIt is unethical to take and take when you haven't earned the right.‚ÄĚ That gets us to the Freep-a-thon. Statistics found easily on the internet prove that only 5% of Freepers support the other 95%. Count the number of unique hits Free Republic receives. Count the number of actual donors...and voila...you will discover that only 5%...

    Full title: Lawful and Peaceful Revolution: Congressí Present Duty to Call a Convention for Proposing Amendments. The solution to Americaís problems is to be found within the American tradition. Fabian socialism, fascism, islam are foreign imports. As varieties of Utopian statism, they not only offer no reasonable solutions, they are hostile to our cultural DNA. They ignore four hundred years of customs, beliefs, and replace them with oppressive forms unfit for free society and contradictory to free government. This 1990 treatise examines the history of Article V from its conceptual beginning in the Articles of Confederation through the 1787 Federal...

    Full title: Lawful and Peaceful Revolution: Congressí Present Duty to Call a Convention for Proposing Amendments. The means to peacefully amend our form of government is unique to American constitutions, as evidenced in the early state constitutions immediately after independence and the 1777 Articles of Confederation. In an odd twist, it was the amending Article, number XIII of the confederation that sowed the seed of its own destruction. While acknowledging that government must be amenable to change determined by its member states, it required unanimous consent of all states. In theory the Articles of Union were amendable, in practice they...
