    At about the 2:00 mark they bring up RatherGate and how within 30 mins FreeRepublic cracked it open. Main topic is Climate but FR was brought up because of the ability of average people to do actual research.

  • FreeRepublic.com being displayed as a "dangerous site" on my computer

    11/03/2018 1:56:24 PM PDT · by BlueLancer · 73 replies
    Just about a half-hour ago when I clicked on my shortcut to go to FreeRepublic.com, a page popped up indicating something along the lines that "QANON.com" was phishing for information on FreeRepublic, and, when I continued, the address at the top now indicates that it's "dangerous" and it has lined through the "https" part of the indentification. Is something actually going on or is this something that Google is just doing to show its displeasure with a conservative website? It's not the shortcut, because I tried coming in directly from the search engine, along with typing in "https://www.freerepublic.com" specifically. Any...

    Recollections of A FRee Republic Poster | October 31, 2018 | bert
    For weeks ahead of the date, folks like me had to decide……. Do I really believe all this stuff we discuss daily on Free Republic? Should I scrounge up some money and set aside the time to travel to Washington DC to be a part of what is being called The March For Justice? The Answer is Yes! There was to be a march with State flags. I bought a Tennessee state flag to wave in the gathering. To my astonishment, as I waved the flag, several Tennesseans in the crowd rallied to the flag and zap…..we had a Tennessee...

    Twenty year Freeper anniversary. I joined up during the corrupt Clinton years. It was also the time I stopped watching TV news because I was tired of being lied to , tired of the endless sucking up to RAT leaders , tired of Hollywood idiots pontificating as if their celebrity status made their worse than worthless opinions worth listening to, and , most of all , just plain tired of being tired. It was during this time I learned how to photo-shop with free software made for Linux: GIMP. It’s available for Windows as well but after years of...

    HILLARY! UNCENSORED CLIP 10 years ago today, I screened HILLARY! UNCENSORED at Harvard on her 60th birthday. Despite a very gracious invitation, she chose to be with Rob Reiner at the birthday party he threw for her. During the 2008 election cycle, over 21 million people saw various clips of the film online. As you recall, the primaries were incredibly close and she fought for the nomination to the very end. Although we take no credit for Obama, I hope we played some small part in stopping this evil woman. Peter Paul, who funded the concert, did it for...
  • Beloved Freeper known as Mama Dearest has passed away

    Received via FReepmail from ExSoldier | Oct 22, 2018 | by ExSoldier
    Beloved Freeper known as Mama Dearest has passed away. I (ExSoldier) was notified via private email by her son yesterday. Sharon was a deeply devout Christian and she resided in upper Idaho with her husband, Bob. I first met her here in FR many years ago and we sort of clicked as kindred souls. We kept in touch via snail mail, email and even phone calls with yet another freeper Appalachain Dweller. He actually came to my home years ago from his then home in Virginia and stayed over a week. We are still in close contact, he too is...

    My withered brain | 14 October 2018 | Me
    Was at a mall today, bored and waiting for my wife to stop spending my money. So I tried to go onto Free Republic to pass the time. I didn’t know I was on JC Penny’s WiFi (I was not in the store). Can’t quite figure out what word has been banned... Free? Republic? No wonder they’re going out of business.

    I joined FR on 8 October 2000. On the 14th I made my first contribution and coined the phrase, "Broken Glass Republican" at the same time. (See the link above)(A thank you to the Wayback Machine for archiving the post. JimRob says the FR database has been corrupted.) The term was picked up by Byron York who got it from his sister, a FReeper, over dinner and published in National Review. Peggy Noonan then used it in her article The Meaning of the Vote Democracy is a blessing--especially for "Broken Glass Republicans". It was also used repeatedly by Rush on...

    There is life beyond q. And as much as q-pers may dislike non-q-believers, that does not make them trolls. Long-term FReepers are not trolls. If we can't coexist on one forum, then other arrangements can be made. Advise you cool your jets.

    Encyclopedia Virginia ^ | May 23 1861 | Nelson D. Lankford
    The Virginia Convention of 1861, also known later as the Secession Convention, convened on February 13, 1861, on the eve of the American Civil War (1861–1865), to consider whether Virginia should secede from the United States. Its 152 delegates, a majority of whom were Unionist, had been elected at the behest of the Virginia General Assembly, which also directed that their decision be ratified by a statewide referendum. Several states in the Deep South, beginning with South Carolina, had already left the Union in response to the election in November 1860 of Abraham Lincoln as United States president. Virginia, however,...
  • Feeling sorry for yourself today?

    Just in case you are feeling sorry for yourself today. You may have good reason, but imagine: Imagine you had to flee your family, your country (Iraq) for fear of your life. Your own family threatened to take your life for becoming a Christian. Imagine you had to leave everything of value and go to one country, then another and finally be settled in the United States. Imagine you had a degree in your own country but it has no value in the US. Imagine you need to go to college but are unqualified for financial aid because you already...
