  • If Republicans can’t oppose Roy Moore, they’re headed for extinction

    Washington Post ^ | October 27, 2017 | by Jennifer Rubin
    Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore serves as a convenient dividing line. If Republicans cannot oppose a former state supreme court justice ousted twice from the bench who espouses rabidly anti-Muslim views and believes homosexuality should be criminalized, the GOP is truly headed for the ash heap of history. So how are they doing? In certainly the most cringe-worthy move of his career, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), a former Texas Supreme Court justice, declared that was “proud to offer my support to Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. I look forward to working with him to pass legislation that will...

    A good friend of mine, who also happens to be an outstanding author, once quipped, “If I am forced to choose a side, I choose the side which is not forcing me to choose sides.” Seldom have I ever encountered phrasing more apt. Because that’s precisely how I feel. I’ve been feeling that way, for years now. It was not a sudden thing. It was a gradual realization. The slow clarity of an underlying sentiment, incrementally surfacing. To make the picture more specific, let me lay out some background details. This is a bit wordy, so bear with me: When...
  • Are we headed toward another civil war? Can it be avoided?

    Are we headed towards another civil war? Can one be avoided? When you step back and see the ravenous hunger that the MSM has to bring down President Trump.... how they will spin and magnify and they glory in and relish in their own faults narratives… How they overload the echo chamber of news…until their masters create a crescendo.. Can the second civil war be avoided? War IS a real possibility! I fear possibly inevitable! Why? Because of who controls the news today… ...They will not let up… They have no conscience… They have no morals… They only have one...

  • Report: A Weasel Shut Down the Large Hadron Collider

    The Large Hadron Collider suffered a power outage last night, after a luckless weasel decided to chew on a 66-kilovolt power cable. It’s not the first time the LHC, a 17-mile superconductor that smashes atoms together at close to the speed of light, has run into trouble because of something small and cute. In 2009, the power went down after a bird dropped a baguette onto a critical electrical system. Although the incident was widely reported and confirmed at the time by sources at the LHC, CERN is apparently now telling folks it may be apocryphal. “This was a story...

    Rand Paul may not be in tonight's Republican debate but he did a media blitz of sorts yesterday, including hits on MSNBC, Fox, and CNN and ending with an extended interview on The Daily Show. Watch the two-parter below as the Kentucy senator swill bourbon with host Trevor Noah and says the federal government shouldn't be "able to tell you what you "smoke, eat, and drink."

    THE Moon landings between 1969 and 1972 never took place and were staged by the US intelligence community, a controversial filmmaker has claimed. Bart Sibrel claims he has proof the CIA orchestrated the famous Apollo 11 moon landing - and believes no one has ever stepped on the lunar surface because it is too dangerous. Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Sibrel reckons mankind would have set up bases by now if it was possible to travel to the moon. And he believes the historic event took place in a film set and the crew were actors given instructions by...

  • Gays Who Accept Homosexuality is a Mental Illness ZOT!

    06/07/2015 8:32:59 PM PDT · by johnhankle177 · 37 replies
    Hello This is the first time I have posted so please forgive me if I have this topic in the wrong place. However, I had a questions and was hoping to receive some help. I am writing an article about gays who are against the homosexual agenda and thought I would include something in there about homosexuality and mental health. In the 1970s the APA changed the classification of homosexuality so it was no longer considered mental illness and many psychology and psychiatry organizations all over the world have followed. However, there was little basis at that time to think...

    As a relative n00b, I remember when I first signed up on FR and being careful not to post anything at first for fear of ***SOB*** FReeper ridicule, that most every Sunday evening, some DUer or other troll would post some stupid, provocative thread just to piss FReepers off.The retaliation by FReepers was immediate and relentless. The troll was soundly over-powered by logic and facts that completely destroyed their point.The Viking kitties emerged and the trolls were soundly zotted into oblivion.Anyhoo, I haven't seen a good, Sunday evening ZOT in awhile. Do you have any favorite ZOTS that you remember?

  • Will FreeRepublic Finally Stop Posts Equating Guilt or Innocence with (Females') Looks???

    11/11/2014 12:44:00 AM PST · by Secret Agent Man · 636 replies
    The Cranberries prior posting about the gal singer who assaulted the flight attendant and cop was the last stupid straw about posting about guilt based on looks. (Note I am not a big Cranberries fan, I have no dog in this particular hunt - it's just an example.) I am not against posts that discuss a person's looks per se. Particularly if it factors into the issue being discussed. If it's relevant, it's relevant. What I am objecting to are the stupid inane posts that add nothing of value to the thread and detract from the reputation of this site...
  • Poll: Americans Pick President Obama Over Mitt Romney for Dinner Date

    The American public may be divided on "Obamacare," but when faced with choosing a candidate to care for them if illness struck, President Obama is their man. By a 13 point margin - 49-36 percent - registered voters polled by ABC News chose the president over Mitt Romney to nurse them back to health. When asked who they thought "would make a more loyal friend," the results were about the same. By a 50-36 percent count, respondents said Obama was more likely to stick with them through trying times. As for suppertime, still more ugly numbers for Romney. Fifty-two percent...

    A Bexar County Jail inmate committed suicide in his cell today using a plastic spoon, officials said. Robert Rodriguez, 29, was found unconscious and bleeding by a guard in the administrative segregation unit around noon, Deputy Chief Ronald Bennett of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said. “It appears there were self-inflicted wounds from a plastic spoon he had made sharp and used to stab himself,” Bennett said. Rodriguez was arrested June 9 on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and possession of a controlled substance, and was booked into the jail's detoxification unit the next day. At some point since then,...

I use this handy feature to quickly get to groups of tagged articles. Some of the missing ones that have been there for years are "palin" and "sarahpalin", santorum is new, and some of the others but a few old good ones like "banglist" are still there. Weird...

    A city in ruins: Stunning photo taken from kite that captures devastation from 1906 earthquake in San Francisco This rarely seen image of the city of San Fransisco lying in ruins after the devastating earthquake of 1906 was captured by an ingenious photographer using a camera attached kites. The panoramic shot, which is of outstanding quality considering the basic equipment available, shows the full scale of the disaster which claimed the lives of over 3,000, injured 225,000 and caused $400,000,000 worth of property damage. Commercial photographer George Lawrence, who used home-made large format cameras, was well known at the time...

    As the merry-go-round of the GOP primary continues, the present darling of fickle voters is Newt Gingrich, Like a phoenix he’s risen from the ashes to claim, with typical humility, “I’m going to be the nominee,” dismissing all other candidates as a trifling irrelevancy. Unfortunately the belated choice of Gingrich is no choice at all, for there can be little doubt how the questionably conservative and enormously polarizing Gingrich would fare against a personally popular Obama in the General Election. There is, at present only one real choice to make regarding the next president. It’s either Romney or Obama. A...
