    What happened to Drudge? In the past, Drudge has been a fairly reliable source of news. However, in the last week, their featured headlines leads the reader to conclude Trump is done for. Thank God for Free Republic!

    I am so confused. I flip onto CNN and MSNBC and they are saying Trump is doomed. I go to Fox and they are talking about Syria. I look on Drudge and all the headlines are about the end of Trump. I go to FR and not much talk about any of this. So what is really going on. Business as usual or something dramatic? Thank you.

    Rush is spreading false economic assertions again. Labor is NOT the biggest manufacturing cost. For example cars, even if union labor is used, the cost per vehicle is only 8% on average. I posting this to prove that we are selling out US workers for a few pennies on the dollar!!

    Fellow Freepers, As you all, collectively, are the smartest folks I could bring this to, I bring you this vanity... Last night, my eighth grade son informed me his history teacher (yes public school, yes I know, the only saving grace is next year he will be in a trade school) told the class that the president could suspend the Constitution in a national emergency. I dutifully told him that was hogwash, pulled out our Constitution and went through the president's Article II rights and duties. Clearly, suspending the Constitution is NOT one of them. I composed a nice email...

    I would like to know about a national emergency declaration. How effective is it and can it be blocked? I hear that every president has issued national emergency declarations. I also hear that the courts, lower and supreme, can block it. It that is true what would be the use of issuing such an order? Help please.

    First off, the Why. The left has wanted DJT gone since election night. The hatred and contempt for DJT and his supporters is psychotic. But more importantly, the reason they MUST remove him now is because of the story about RGB that surfaced today.

    How did the Far Left destroy Illinois' finances like that? Illinois is seeing people move out of the state like NY, NY, CA, CT, NH, ME. Illinois was a swing state back in 2000-----George Bush and Al Gore were contesting the Land of Lincoln.

    I want to make it clear before I begin this article, I am a woman, a mother of two sons, an admirer of my father, and I am married to a man. Further, if I had ever been sexually assaulted – raped – in my life these are steps I would have taken – Go straight to the hospital and beg for help – they have rape kits, authorities, and sedatives there – of course, I would have wanted law officers present. If I did not take the first step, I would accept I had made a decision that my...

    Folks, is that photo we see posted of Christine Blasey Ford current or not so current. Thus far, I have only witnessed two photos of Ms. Ford, one, when she a young teenage lady and one taken when it appears she was a bit older. The other day, when I googled her Facebook page to see what she looked like, asking to see images of her, a sight flashed up on screen and then immediately disappeared. I tried a few times to re-enter my inquiry with no luck. For some reason, IMHO, I am beginning to believe that forces out...

    I was finally able to leave the fake news coverage of the Million Munchkin March (my Saturday morning obligations put me in an office where the local Miami media was hyping it). From the video I saw, it didn't look like anywhere close to a million....which was the number being touted by the "journalists". I see some pics on the internet taken in "wide vision" that seem to make the numbers look big, but I am skeptical. Any ideas?
