    Last night Jeff Sessions bravely gave a speech that touched on free trade, the wall, NAFTA and the shrinking industrial base of the USA. I've been watching for over an hour so far and Faux Friends has ignored the only speaker with the same views as Trump on these the most critical of issues. Faux News is in the bag of the Cheap Labor Express.
  • Black Lives Matter Was Gaining Ground. Then a Sniper Opened Fire.

    The New York Times ^ | July 9, 2016 | Michael Barbaro and Yamiche Alcindor
    It felt like a watershed moment for a scattered and still-young civil rights movement. Inside Black Lives Matter, the national revulsion over videos of police officers shooting to death black men in Minnesota and Louisiana was undeniable proof that the group’s message of outrage and demands for justice had finally broken through. Even the white governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton, in a pained public concession, embraced the movement’s central argument. “Would this have happened if those passengers — the driver and the passengers — were white?” he asked. “I don’t think it would’ve.” Then, in an instant, everything changed. Black...

    Opposition leader and Zionist Union chairman MK Yitzhak Herzog confirmed "the door is closed" regarding his party joining the coalition Monday, rejecting via Twitter an offer from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to resume talks. "Netanyahu, in response to your inquiries in recent days about resumption of negotiations on joining your government, I want to clarify publicly what I told you verbally: that door is closed," Herzog wrote. "This chapter is finished. You are a prisoner in the hands of the most extreme and we will fight you - and them," he added, referring to the addition of Yisrael Beytenu. ......

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Columnist Charles Krauthammer said that Jeb Bush “is lagging” and “should not be in single digits” on Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. During the show’s Friday candidate casino segment where the panelists bet $100 of fictional money on presidential candidates, Krauthammer put $40 on Marco Rubio to win the GOP nomination, $25 on Bush, $20 on Scott Walker, $5 on Ted Cruz and the remaining $10 on wine, women, and song. He explained, “I’m increasing my investment in Rubio. I’m feeling vindicated and somewhat cocky, having been in on the deal very early when he was...
  • Obama: Gun control filibuster 'not right'

    President Obama will tell Senate Republicans it’s “not right” to filibuster his gun control agenda, according to excerpts of his the prepared remarks he will make Monday in Connecticut. “Some back in Washington are already floating the idea that they might use political stunts to prevent votes on any of these reforms,” Obama will say, according to the remarks. “They’re not just saying they’ll vote ‘no’ on ideas that almost all Americans support. They’re saying they won’t allow any votes on them at all. They’re saying your opinion doesn’t matter. And that’s not right.” Obama’s speech centering on the Capitol...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 10/15/2012 | Joel Gehrke
    President Obama’s campaign once again attacked the methodology of Gallup just days after the polling group adjusted their methodology in a way that benefited the president. This time, the criticism came this time from the Obama pollster who mocked the Romney team for debating about the reliability of polls.After Gallup/USA Today released a poll showing Mitt Romney tied with Obama among likely female voters in swing states, Obama pollster Joel Benenson pointed to “deep flaws in Gallup’s likely voter screen” and dismissed the survey as an “extreme outlier.”David Axelrod, Obama’s top campaign strategist, made a similar argument earlier this year....

    Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Mininster Salam Fayyad of the Palestinian Authority (PA) feel anger and dissatisfaction at the new Egyptian administration over its approach to the PA, especially its representation, according to PA sources cited, Monday, by the London-based Ash-Sharq Il-Awsat daily. The sources say Abu-Mazen and Fayyad are not pleased that the government of President Mohammed Morsi "has ties with Hamas as if it is the representative of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, while ignoring the role of the Palestinian Authority." The sources added that "Egypt is negotiating with the Hamas government

    Israel’s actions have stripped the Palestinian Authority of its “raison d'etre”, creating a reality which cannot continue, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas will say in a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, AFP reported on Sunday. The French news agency’s report was based on a copy it saw of the letter. Abbas recently revealed some of the letter's contents in a speech in Cairo. In the letter, which will be delivered to Netanyahu this week, Abbas warns that “the current status quo cannot continue”, according to the AFP report. “As a result of actions taken by successive Israeli governments, the Palestinian...

    A group of 150 archaeologists and students sent a petition Tuesday to Environment Minister Gilad Erdan and Sport and Culture Minister Limor Livnat, asking them to drop their support for a law that formalizes private archaeological digs and research at national parks and historical sites. The petition says that the law would “politicize archaeology in Israel and damage the independence of researchers," and calls for the ministers to oppose the "privatization of archaeology," which, they write, would be the death knell of archaeology in Israel. But supporters of the law said that there were already hundreds of independent and private...

    The Palestinian Authority has lashed out at Israel over MKs' plans to cut benefits to imprisoned terrorists as long as Gilad Shalit remains in captivity. Riyad Elashkar, a senior official in the PA's Prisoners Affairs Ministry, accused Israel of “an unprecedented campaign of oppression, terror and isolation.” PA officials warned that the thousands of PA Arabs imprisoned in Israel would begin a hunger strike on Sunday. The strike will be a warning strike, said Elashkar. Prisoners may go on to refuse to take part in the daily headcount, he said. MKs are seeking to put an end to good prison...

    SAN ANTONIO - Deborah Gonzalez says she is pretty heated with Hertz Rent A Car on San Pedro Avenue. Gonzales and her family say they found a loaded gun in a car they rented last week. "I was horrified," said Gonzalez. "I couldn't even speak. I broke down crying because there was a loaded gun in my hands, and I don't know where it came from." Gonzalez says she was riding in the car with her 2-year-old and 3-year-old grandchildren. She stumbled across the gun while picking up a child's shoe that fell under the driver's seat. "I kept yanking,...
  • What's with the recent trend of tagging non-relevant articles with palin or sarahpalin?

    What's with the recent trend of tagging articles with palin or sarahpalin that have nothing to do with Sarah Palin? If your article has nothing to do with Palin, please don't tag it as such. It's bad enough that journalists use her name to get hits to their articles or as a cheap source of writing material. We don't need that attitude here too. Just because people want to increase traffic to their posts, doesn't mean they should tag their posted articles with palin or sarahpalin. This just clutters the keyword/tagging system.

    The manager of Don Otto’s - a recently shuttered food market in the South End - is blaming neighborhood patrons for its untimely demise, cooking up an angry message to fair-weather fans of the Tremont Street eatery. “Don Otto’s Market wants to say we had few customers that understood customer loyalty and its importance to our business,” a message on its Web site reads, later adding: “If you came in only for baguettes, the occasional piece of cheese, the occasional dinner . . . you can not tell yourself you were a supporter of our market.”

    I have been a minor participant at Free Republic, the Internet’s leading conservative forum, since September 2004. An online friend referred me to a discussion where members of Free Republic were talking about the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections, and using my maps from this page to make a point. I had to join FR to introduce myself to that group, and thank them for visiting. Because that was right after the “Rathergate” scandal, I thus became one of the “Pajamahadeen” that had just brought down the Sauronic eye of CBS. Being a “Freeper” has been an interesting and fun...
  • So Freepers don't like RINOs. I get it. But who's NOT a RINO? [vanity]

    I lurk this forum way too much. But it does give me my news fix and some interesting tidbits as well. I am in here enough to get a good gauge of the political celebs Freepers don't like. That would be pretty much everybody. I'm kinda sure nobody likes Mitt Romney. And as of 11/6/08, John McCain is a favorite whipping boy. Overall, the bulk of characters who stood on stage in the early GOP debates last year is tainted in some way. Giuliani, the cross-dressing gun-hater. Ron Paul, the anti-war drug-legalizer. Huckabee, the soft-on-crime wingnut. Yada yada... I'm aligned...

    This morning I posted a thread titled " Obama Orders 1 Million US Troops To Prepare For Civil War". My comment, " Fact or speculation? You decide", in the thread I posted clearly indicated no particular position for or against and with the assumption Freepers could openly debate the merits, or lack thereof, and provide input concerning the article located at another website as has occurred with many other dubious articles posted at FreeRepublic in the past. The thread was pulled with the premise the article was based on the "trutherism" subjectively defined as a conspiracy. I then posted a...

Scrawled in large white letters on one wall is: "The End."</p> <p>For those deported from the United States, the words are an unnecessary reminder. Nearly every hour of the day, guards unlock this gate that leads back into Mexico, clicking open the padlocks hung on each side, in each nation.</p>
