    COLUMBUS, Ohio, —In the wake of the mushrooming IRS scandal, it was learned today that the widening circle of pro-life leadership hit with attempted harassment and intimidation by the IRS has included at least two members of the officers and board members of Pharmacists For Life International (PFLI). PFLI disclosed today that at least two of its officers and board members have been subjected to ongoing harassment and intimidation attempts by the IRS through continued and costly nuisance audits and threatening letters over a period of months and years. The two, who are not being identified at present, have generally...

    The scandal involving IRS discrimination against conservative groups is growing. In one case LifeNews has profiled, a pro-life group was told it had to promote abortion. Now, the Thomas More Society is speaking out about blatant bias by the supposedly apolitical tax-collection agency. The pro-life legal group informed LifeNews today that cases it handled support mounting accusations that demonstrate the agency’s abuse of pro-life organizations, in addition to those identified as ‘tea party’, ‘patriot’, or ‘government spending’ groups. Outrage spurred by recent revelations of IRS discrimination against these groups has also led the Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus to...

    When I first heard "For Greater Glory" (originally titled "Cristiada," which I prefer) was being shot, I was stunned -- and skeptical. It never could be produced by Hollywood. In fact, it wouldn't be a theatrical release, maybe a short documentary, certainly with a small budget. On the former, I was correct; it was made in Mexico. On the latter, I was wrong; it's a full-fledged major motion picture with grade-A talent. And it's wonderful. The cast includes Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria, Peter O'Toole (in a cameo role as a murdered priest, the octogenarian is splendid), Ruben Blades and...

    Liberals are "pro" and bestow rights on people. Conservatives are "anti" and negative. That's the impressions that viewers would get from watching ABC. On Tuesday, Good Morning America's Bianna Golodryga mentioned the possible presidential candidacy of George Pataki, noting the former New York governor is "pro-choice, pro-union and pro-gay rights." Yet, on June 30, 2011, World News reporter Sharyn Afonsi highlighted Michele Bachmann's "anti-abortion view." On June 07, 2011, GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos suggested to Ann Coulter, "You seem to express some kind of understanding for anti-abortion protesters who use violence.” Using slightly different wording, reporter Aaron Katersky provided a...

    Pro-Israel students at Carleton University say they were harassed and intimidated by Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) members after the group’s anti-Israel motion was shelved at a student council meeting last month. Emile Scheffel “People were banging on the doors, screaming, calling us names… We had to wait until campus [security] sent more officers to make sure students could get safely from the council room out to the elevators,” said Emile Scheffel, 21, a fourth-year political science student who isn’t Jewish but is involved in the Israel Awareness Committee (IAC) at Carleton. Scheffel said the incident began when the IAC...

The former view, of course, tends to predominant, but the latest results are rather sad: Just 60% of U.S. voters now say that American society is generally fair and decent, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

    Barack Obama returns to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to speak with House Democrats, and Republicans will try to spoil the party by linking the Democrats’ presidential nominee to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their reluctance to allow votes on offshore oil drilling. Rep. Adam Putnam (R-Fla.) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) will greet Obama’s arrival with a news conference in which they’ll assert that Reid (D-Nev.) and Pelosi (D-Calif.) are holding up votes on offshore drilling in order to protect Obama. They’ll also begin to use “Pelosi-Reid-Obama” in the all-in-the-same-breath way that Democrats now use...

They were all quiet, wondering and transfixed on the little old man digging into the batters' box. The infielders moved up on the grass, giggling, and pitcher looked as uncomfortable as anyone else would have felt. But to 83-year-old Jim Eriotes, it was serious business. Eriotes led off Tuesday's game for the Canaries against the St. Joe (Mo.) Blacksnakes and took four big swings _ even fouling a pitch off _ before striking out....

Julie Utley also said pregnancy testing is too expensive for many women to continue participating in the sport. She estimated it would cost her at least $60 a month for tests. The rule took effect in November and is part of state requirements for licensing contact sports such as professional boxing, wrestling and martial arts. Utley, 19, said she has not wrestled since...

They believe that only bias and conspiracy can explain the relatively paltry number of Cowboys in the Hall of Fame. No franchise has won more playoff games (32) or played in more Super Bowls (eight), and only one other team has won as many championships (five). But only five Cowboys players are in the Hall. No Cowboy has been elected since Mel Renfro in 1996, but that could change Saturday. Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Rayfield Wright are among the 15 finalists....

Sometimes the sacrifices made are simply the other opportunities that were passed up in order to join the Corps. Still, it can be argued...

Fresno hairstylist Anthony Flores, 29, has been paying Frey $175 a month for nearly four years, his attorney, Glenn Wilson, said Wednesday. The father of the 4-year-old girl is actually Fresno restaurant owner Christopher Funch, Wilson said.

Despite the fact that the PSM is basically a group of pro-Palestinian terrorist supporters and enablers, Ohio’s “mainstream” Jewish community, including the Ohio State Hillel, did nothing to oppose the 2003 hate fest at OSU – this is even after repeated requests on my part for their assistance.

That is not the case, said Melinda Swan, chief of staff for Columbus City Council, which will consider the ban next week. Councilman Michael Mentel is introducing the ban at today's council meeting. A public hearing on the proposal will come Thursday. "It's campaign propaganda," said David Buda, an attorney representing the People's Rights Organization, which opposes the ban. City officials disagree with that characterization. Mentel simply...

    The teenage son of pro wrestler Ric Flair was charged with simple assault after a wrestling mat confrontation in which his mother said he was defending his father's reputation. The misdemeanor charge stems from a heated match at a state regional wrestling competition in February between Colby Harden and Reid Fliehr, both 17 and competing in the 189-pound weight class for the state's largest high schools. Colby, who won in overtime, jumped up and mocked the theatrical shuffle Ric Flair commonly performs in the ring.

    Zhao Ziyang, former Secretary-General of mainland China’s Communist Party, died at a Beijing hospital last Monday. Good riddance to another communist? In this case, no. Not all tigers are incapable of changing their stripes. During his tenure in China’s one and only political party, Zhao took steps that truly can be called “reforms.” Zhao's greatest moment occurred during the pro-democracy rebellion of 1989, which was centered in and around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. He opposed the use of China’s vast military might against the peaceful protestors gathered in the square. On May 19, 1989, Zhao personally pleaded with the protestors, mostly...

And for some people, that's really hard. They can be abstractly in favor of abortion rights, but they sure don't want to see what an eighteen-week...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE! DO THE READERS A FAVOR. STOP CROSS-POSTING YOUR MESSAGES!
  • O'Reilly really is biased

    I was just thinking about the Jeremy Glick episode. O'Reilly may be moderate politically, but that doesn't mean unbiased these days. His problem is that he isn't neutral when it comes to the United States. He is pro-American. To the left, that's biased.

    War to Mobilize Democracy ^ | 11/28/04 | Andrew Jaffee
    I’d love to have a talk about the current situation in the Ukraine with my left-wing friends, but I don’t think they would be interested, and probably not even capable of an intelligent discussion. Not only is the Ukraine so far off and seemingly unimportant to them, the intricacies of its politics defy the usual “left” vs. “right” stereotypes. I truly believe that many long-time lefties pine for the days of the Soviet Union. It gave them a glimmer of hope for world-wide socialism in their otherwise very comfortable, cushy, American lives. Too much guilt about living in the midst...

    Gleeful Extremist ^ | 11-4-4 | Editorial Staff
    Even after Pennsylvania's other senator, Catholic and self-described pro-life senator Rick Santorum, endorsed pro-abortion Arlen Specter in the primary instead of a pro-life challenger -- which Santorum said he did because only Specter could win the actual election, thus ensuring a GOP majority in the Senate and more pro-life judges ... Even after the President used his political capital to get Specter elected -- which Specter repaid by not campaigning at all for Bush and not exactly crying for justice when Kerry/Specter for Working Families signs showed up in SE Pennsylvania ... Even after pro-life workers spent countless hours campaigning...

    IPWGOP's brother-in-law ^ | 8/14/2004 | IPWGOP
    I live in Iowa. My hardcore, pro-Bush brother-in-law went to the Iowa State Fair today. He said, "I never thought I'd see the day that Iowa turned FOR Bush. But everywhere at the Fair today there were people walking around carrying 'Bush' yard signs!"I pressed him further, and he said that all folks were talking about was the 'Kerry Vietnam thing' and the Cambodia story in particular and how mad they were. He was absolutely amazed.He also said that the Democrat's booth was like a 'dead zone' and the Republican booth was swarmed to the point that he couldn't even...
