    Parity: A shocking new study from a bipartisan panel charged with analyzing the Trump administration’s National Defense Study actually concludes that U.S. military advantages may have eroded to a point where it could lose a war with Russia or China. The Washington Post reports: The National Defense Strategy Commission, comprised of former top Republican and Democratic officials selected by Congress, evaluated the Trump administration’s 2018 National Defense Strategy, which ordered a vast reshaping of the U.S. military to compete with Beijing and Moscow in an era of renewed great-power competition. While endorsing the strategy’s aims, the commission warned that Washington...
  • End of 1982 Consent Decree: GOP finally can contest vote fraud after 36 years

    Just in time for this November’s mid-term elections! Did you know that since 1982, the Republican Party had been legally prohibited from contesting elections due to suspected vote fraud, because of a legal agreement called the Consent Decree the GOP made with the Democrat Party? Finally, 36 years later, a judge has ended the agreement, freeing the Republican Party to ensure electoral integrity by investigating and pursuing suspected vote fraud. Betcha you never heard or seen this truly momentous news in the Left-infested mainstream nedia. Why’s that?

    Since the dawn of civilisation, kings, emperors and other men and women of wealth have wanted to rule the world, but none has succeeded. Every empire that arose on the blood of the people it subjected and enslaved – the ancient kingdoms of Egypt and Assyria, the successive Persian and Chinese empires, the Roman empire, the Islamic caliphates, the Ottoman empire, the various European colonial empires and even the communist regime of the Soviet Union – all eventually fell. Even the United States’ global primacy, a logic result of the end of the Cold War, is now being tested by...

    Blog Police Creeps Are George Soros Plants For at least a month now a crew of three or four screen names here on Free Republic have been used to spam post after post all across the board. They have decided that they are Free Republic's police, they think they speak for the whole board, and have been attempting to drive people off this site. But are they real FReepers? Or are they something else? It is pretty clear that they are being paid to do this by a George Soros-styled, left wing organization to spam FR, attack posters, and attempt...

    When it comes to the size of a male's manhood, it appears size really does matter. Men with smaller penises tend to be less fertile, a new study has revealed. Those with fertility problems tend to have penises around a third of an inch shorter when erect, on average, than men without any issues.

    My father has been a pilot for all of my life of 50 years. He seems to latch on to ideas such as the flat earth theory that betrays everything that he was trained in aerial course plotting. True north? Magnetic North? Distant mountains rising from the horizon during the flight etc. He finally believes that the international space station exists after I insisted that he join me on a clear night to watch it go over. He seems to be obsessed with the notion that doom and destruction are always nearing. He's been like chicken little about gun control...

    If you agree like me you are very frustrated with the GOP senators. Say what you want, if this was the Democrats, he would have been confirmed already. Whether you agree with them or not, they stick to their convictions. The GOP wants to bend over backwards to show they are pro-woman when they already are. The Democrats accuse them of these things and they take the bait. IF Kavanaugh is NOT confirmed, we are going to face a wipeout in Nov like we have never seen. They are being played like fiddle and they seem to be the only...

    US President Donald Trump will reportedly announce new tariffs on about $200 billion on Chinese imports. Meanwhile, Washington has invited Chinese officials to restart trade talks later this month. While Washington extends a carrot to Beijing, it is also swinging a stick. It is nothing new for the US to try to escalate tensions so as to exploit more gains at the negotiating table. The unilateral and hegemonic moves by the US will meet firm countermeasures from China. Against the backdrop of successive US offensives in the trade war, China will not just play defense. Nowadays economic and trade relations...

    Serious question here. We know that the Democratic Party is the identity politics party. They like to pander to women, black, Latino, millennial, gay, white women, etc. They nominated and elected the first black man (Barack Obama). They nominated the first woman (Hillary Clinton), but failed. They'll try to run a woman or a Latino candidate, potentially. However, do you see Democrats nominating a lesbian feminist, and could that person win the presidency in the future, especially since the Left controls the media, academia, etc.?
  • Jeff Sessions Is Executing Trump’s Immigration Plans With a Quiet, Efficient Brutality

    Over the past few months, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has faced fierce criticism for his role in the Trump administration’s family separation policy. But while the White House continues to deal with the fallout from tearing kids away from their parents at the border, Sessions has been busy orchestrating another, much quieter attack on the country’s immigration system. Tensions have been simmering for months between the attorney general and the hundreds of judges overseeing immigration courts, but they reached a new high in July. The flashpoint was the case of Reynaldo Castro-Tum, a Guatemalan man who was scheduled to appear...

    Workers were given the impression the president wanted “pictures that appeared to depict more spectators.” Shortly after his inauguration, President Donald Trump boasted about the size of the crowds in attendance, and then-press secretary Sean Spicer, in his first press conference, sided with his boss and insisted that it had been “the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period.” This wasn’t true, of course, but a government photographer did his best to make it seem like it was. Newly released documents obtained by the Guardian show that a National Park Service photographer, following a request from the White House,...

    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...

    When The Naked Farmer came to town looking for people to get their kit off for a good cause, dairy farmer Kerry Wilson was approached to take part. He and his partner Paul Wilson agreed, though Kerry had reservations about not having the right body type. "Gee whiz, I'm 56. Does it matter?" Kerry asked. It didn't. The cause, which raises awareness about the mental health of Australian farmers, hit a personal chord with the couple. Kerry and Paul are fifth-generation farmers who live and work together near Nimbin in the northern rivers of New South Wales. "You carry a...
