  • The News Media Is a Cult: Amplifying Isikoff

    Michael Isikoff wrote, on the 23rd, a news article that is so completely packed with innuendo and the use of the language to color and direct the readers opinion, that I thought to improve his work.He has three 'anonymous sources' to back his claims, which in Wisconsin -- as fiercely partisan and anti-Walker as it is -- should not be hard to find, whether true or not.He then goes to draw nebulous links among various facts to paint Walker as evil, and to create the newest 15-minute-hate Koch Brother for the far left.So, in the interest of helping him out...

    My Fellow FREEPERs, It is with a heavy heart, I have undertaken to start a serious national discussion on secession as, perhaps, the only means by which we can restore the balance to our nation and preserve for our posterity the freedoms given to us by our Founding Fathers and passed down to us for the last 239 years. I have reached the conclusion that our nation has passed the tipping point which the Founding Fathers and Alexis de Toqueville warned us would lead to the death of our republic: when a majority of people believe they can continuously vote...

    The proper response to liberals spewing AntiCruz hate and rhetoric is to remind them that they are just: "RACISTS that hate the idea of a Hispanic President". Who want Hispanics trimming their hedges, or cutting their grass, and voting how they are told to, rather than running for President. Remind them that all of their opposition to Cruz and his ideas are based in their own Racist Privilege. If they ask how such a thing can be, remind them of the MANY examples we have been given of this over the last seven years by the likes of: OPRAH WINFREY:...

    Watching a documentary on the Berlin Wall tonight I remembered leftists from that era (Obama's family, for example) saying, "That's not true Communism." All of the Communists countries in the world weren't true Communism? Remind you of anything? "That's not true Islam!" Leftists claimed back then, and I suppose still do, that none of the Communists countries are representing true Communism. For that you have to go back to the original founding documents (Marx). Now they claim none of the Muslim countries are practicing "true Islam." You have to do back to the founding documents (Koran). Which of these countries...

    It was in the early morning hours of Monday March 21st, 2005 that a Republican controlled Congress wrapped up a weekend series of sessions to pass legislation related to Terri Schiavo's case to allow federal courts to consider her right of due process. Final Senate passage of House Bill 203 came at 12:41 am and shortly thereafter President George W. Bush stepped out of his bedroom at the White House to sign the bill in a hallway. There was hope and fear surrounding the legislation. Hope from lawyers trying to save Terri's life and fear from Michael Schiavo. An emotional...

    Just got back from "Do You Believe?". It is excellent. There were so few people in the theatre though, and that was sad but I'm hoping that word will spread and people will pack the theatres to see it. It is so worth it! I was struck by some pretty good names, in the scheme of things, that appeared in the movie. Maybe not A list stars but not no names either. Gives me a little hope that Hollyweird is not completely hopeless. Mira Sorvino, Cybill Shepard, Ted McGinley, Brian Bosworth.... Also, the trailers had some good previews of other...

  • Can America Afford a War With Iran?

    03/13/2015 9:29:02 AM PDT · by pinochet · 79 replies
    Vanity Fair estimated the cost of the Iraq War to be $3 trillion. Iran has a population that is more than double the population of Iraq, and is much richer than Iraq was in 2003. A War with Iran will cost over 6 trillion dollars, without even factoring inflation since 2003. When inflation is factored in, that would add about $10 trillion dollars to the deficit. Can America afford the $10 trillion it will take to wage war and occupy Iran?

    An Obituary printed in the London Times Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as : - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault.

    There may be precedence of using private email accounts in government, but I don't know of anyone having their own hardware system at their private residence. Using accounts at google still allows subpoenas to be issued to the ISP such that data can be retrieved from archives, even if the user has deleted them. Quite frankly, I'm not concerned about Hillary's email to other .gov addresses. I'm sure they're benign. I'm also sure she knows when something is classified. As a Secretary of State, if you wanted to hand off something classified, what better way to do it than in...

When I went to "boost" / advertise the post, Facebook came back with a denial saying that the ad didn't meet their advertising guidelines. Stating that you cant advertise the sale of firearms or ammo. This video didn't advertise either - it merely showed how ridiculous the possible ban on NATO Green Tip ammo is and in my opinion, sort of funny. Who else has had a run in with Facebook?

    It's over. After bringing us within hours of a shutdown on Friday, congressional leaders backed down and voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security through the rest of the year today. That didn't happen because they suddenly came to their senses and decided to stop playing political games. It happened because they knew they couldn't get away with it any longer. They heard the voices of hundreds of thousands of Americans who stood up to let them know we were ready to hold them accountable. They saw reasonable members of Congress standing united, and refusing to budge. And you...

Who knows what other gifts-concessions Obama (the stealth Islamic iman) will attempt to give Iran via this agreement. My question is: Doesn't the Constitution require that this agreement (treaty) be voted on and ratified (approved) by the U.S. Senate ? If so, then it's politically simple work for the U.S. Senate to just say "hell no" to Emperor Obama. Is this analysis correct ? Comments are invited. .

  • Why the Globalist Wants Assad of Syria Gone [Vanity]

    02/25/2015 11:31:16 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 18 replies
    The reason Assad has been vilified is because Qatar wants a natural gas pipeline to run through the Arabian peninsula, through Jordan, through SYRIA, to Turkey. From Turkey, it can connect with existing pipelines to Europe, in order to supply Europe with natural gas. This proposed pipeline would threaten Russia economically, as Russia currently supplies Europe with natural gas. Syria and Russia are allies. Thus, Assad said "No" to the proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline that would run through Syria. Next thing you know, there's an "uprising" in Syria, and Assad is public enemy number one. And when it became clear...

In the interest of fairness and social justice, shouldn't there be only one "Best Performer" Oscar?
