    Anonymous has posted a listing on 8chan claiming it is an extensive list of nationwide members of the anti-free speech group ANTIFA and it includes many teachers! The list is very long and includes Facebook links as well. There are many professors, school teachers, and other education staff. Many writers, political activists and programmers as well. We did some research and cannot seem to find anywhere that states this list is not accurate. Proceed with caution. Here is the list: https://8ch.net/pol/res/10404804.html#10405484 Many are connected to radical Communist groups, like the National Bolshevik Party (NBP) Antifa and BLM showed up at...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) Norway's state church has seen a record fall in membership after making it possible to join and leave the church electronically. The Church of Norway says almost 25,000 members left in August by using a new function on the church's website. Meanwhile, about 1,200 new members joined online. Even though the church has seen a steady decline in membership in recent decades, that's by far the biggest monthly loss in recorded history. By comparison, the church lost 8,588 members in the first seven months of 2016, before the online option was introduced. Still, church officials appear to...

    One of most dangerous areas in America has resorted to paying teenagers up to $1,300 a month as officials desperately try and stop gun crime. Gang members in Richmond, California, can also go on all expenses paid trips to New York and Washington if they are willing to travel with a rival. The programme, which is predominantly funded by taxpayers, was introduced in the city earlier this year.

    According to a July Gallup poll, public approval of Congress has fallen to near-record lows. On average, 34% of the population approves of a given Congress. The current 114th Congress has a 17% approval rating. Americans have reason to be concerned. According to GovTrack.us, the last two Congresses have enacted fewer laws than any other Congress since 1947. And the 114th Congress may just surpass them all in terms of doing nothing.

On the FR home page it says: "Over 300,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic since inception in 1996 "So, why is it that only certain people are willing to put out the money to keep the doors open? Are the rest of the 300,000 liberals and democrats, who are here just to spy on us?Seriously folks, if everyone put up a dollar, FR would have no...

    Western Springs and La Grange members of an anti-gun violence group are asking area businesses to post signs depicting No Guns Allowed. A new state law allows residents to carry concealed weapons, pending approval of permit applications through the Illinois State Police. The first such permits are expected to be issued beginning March 1. I prefer to shop in places where I feel safe, said Katherine Mudd, a Western Springs member of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She has children, ages 7 and 9, and has been handing out postcards to area businesses.

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A drive-by shooting killed two members of Greece's Nazi-inspired Golden Dawn party and wounded one outside a party office in Athens on Friday night, in what officials are treating as a likely far-left domestic terrorist attack. The government and opposition parties - all who have long ostracized Golden Dawn as a group of neo-Nazis - quickly condemned the attack, which the left-wing main opposition Syriza said "targets democracy" in Greece. The two victims, aged 22 and 27, were shot at close range from a motorcycle carrying two men, Golden Dawn lawmaker Georgios Germenis told The Associated...

    Its made for Hollywood: the story of an average American family man, captain of a cargo ship in dangerous waters, his vessel overtaken by armed Somali pirates demanding ransom, saving his crew by allowing himself to be removed from the boat and taken hostage. All of this is the basis for Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks as the titular, real-life hero. The only problem, say some members of the real Capt. Phillips crew, is none of it is true. Capt. Richard Phillips, they say, is no hero, and the film is one big lie. Phillips wasnt the big leader like...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin says that union members across America should demand that Obamacare be repealed and defunded, and some of their leaders should resign for not opposing the health care law. "Union brothers and sisters, dont let your incompetent leadership hoodwink you again," Palin wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. "Demand a full repeal, an immediate defunding, and some resignations." Palin, who has in the past criticized union bosses for betraying their hard-working members, said this was another instance of that, as they believed President Barack Obama's false promises on Obamacare and are supporting carve-outs instead of a...

    I was going through some old files on my hard drive, when I discovered a series of threads I preserved from the 1999-2000 timeframe. I started reading through them and I was amazed at the number of people who had been on here, who I lost track of, or no longer see on the forum. I know, some of them are dead, some of them banned, some of them moved on... some of them even changed name! But I would love if any or all of you checked in, informing me of your status. I'm especially interested in hearing from...

    House Republicans want more information about the Obama administration's $54 million grants to help people navigate the new insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act. On Friday, six GOP members of the Energy and Commerce Committee wrote a letter asking Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius seven questions about the grants, which will allow "navigators" to help consumers shop for healthcare in new insurance exchanges. The legislators requested information "to assist the Committee in understanding the role Navigators will play" once the healthcare reform law is fully implemented. They asked about the role and number of the...

    MADISON, Wis. -- State unions were dealt a setback Friday when a federal judge said they would have to get their members to opt in, rather than opt out, to having the state deduct union dues from their paychecks. What's more, the judge did not rule on dues deductions for unions that he earlier found the state improperly decertified. The state's largest unions were decertified, and the ruling -- at least for now -- will make it harder for them to get money from dues. But U.S. District Court Judge William Conley gave unions one beneficial ruling by saying that...

All six will be referred to the proper U.S. authorities for further action, said an official familiar with the joint Afghan-American investigation into the Koran burnings, who was not authorized to speak about it publicly. Significantly, the five service members found responsible so far include military

    With approximately 85 hours remaining before contracts between the United Auto Workers union and Detroits Big Three expire, UAW members can expect a substantially higher signing bonus than in years past, according to reports. But, just how high the bonuses will be remains under speculation. Sept. 10, the Detroit News: Reports that it could be as high as $10,000, which is about three times what union members received for ratifying the last national contract in 2007 are being described as too high.

    Today, one 911 mom, who lost her son, said to me of our 911 Freedom Rally, "I am looking forward to the rally. It is a place we can be free to really remember the who, why, when and where of 9-11. The morning ceremony is devoid of any meaning." The NY Post is reporting that many 911 family members have not been invited to the official ceremonies of 911. This is just monstrous. First it was clergy, then 911 first responders who were excluded from the official ceremonies -- now it's the victims' families. Mayor Gloomberg not only lost...
