    10/25/2017 1:14:49 PM PDT · by JP1201 · 106 replies
    A new Gallup poll shows growing support for marijuana legalization, with 64 percent of Americans now in favor of the measure. The number is the highest level of support in nearly half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup. Support has steadily increased in recent years, with the latest figure up 4 percentage points over last year and up 14 points from 2011. The poll also showed a majority of Republicans favoring legalization for the first time, with 51 percent expressing support. That number is up 9 percentage points from last year, according to Gallup.

The next day, President Barack Obama alleged that the responsible parties were Russian-backed separatists seizing territory in the region following Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Obama’s statement came amid a furious effort by Russian propaganda outlets to foster confusion about the act. In their telling, the tragedy had actually...

    While Free Republic was down I read some snarky remarks about Free Republic and Jim Rob on Facebook. Free Republic is supported 100% by our donations. The reason we do not have the best and top of the line servers and backup servers is money. If Jim Rob were to make this a commercial site he would retire an extremely rich man. If it was a commercial site it would be like Breitbart. On Breitbart you wade through tons of ads and popups! Hundred of thousands of people visit Free Republic. If just a small percentage became monthly donors there...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)SEN. TED CRUZ: Now, the president has been advocating arming the so-called moderate Syrian rebels for some time. And throughout the course of the discussion, what I have endeavored to ask, repeatedly, both publicly and in classified situations, is how do you distinguish the good guys from the bad guys? Last summer, when the president was urging a unilateral attack on Syria, at the time in June of last summer, out of the 9 major rebel groups, 7 of them had significant alliances or connections to al Qaeda or al Nusra or to other radical Islamic groups like ISIS. Consistently...
  • Navy losing sailors and SEALs over emphasis on social issues

    Hate to say “I told you so” but President Obama’s disinterest in enhancing our combat capability in favor of social egalitarianism and a warped sense of social justice is indeed having an impact on war readiness. According to the Washington Times, “A Navy F-18 fighter pilot and former Top Gun instructor is publicly warning admirals that retention is beginning to suffer from the military’s relentless social conditioning programs. Cmdr. Guy Snodgrass said sailors are becoming fed-up with the constant emphasis on social issues — an apparent reference to gays in the military, women in combat and ending sexual harassment.”
  • Hagel says evidence chemical weapons were used in Syria

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday the U.S. intelligence community believes the Syrian regime used the chemical weapon sarin, a revelation that immediately raised the question of whether a "red line" had been crossed in the country's civil war. Hagel confirmed the intelligence assessment, which was detailed in a letter to select members of Congress, while speaking to reporters on a visit to Abu Dhabi. The administration swiftly released those letters, which said U.S. intelligence determined with varying degrees of confidence that "the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically the chemical agent sarin."...

    Elliott Yamin was voted off American Idol Wednesday night, leaving Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee to battle it out next week. When it was revealed that Yamin was going home, the audience gasped, Paula Adbul cried and Katharine McPhee and Taylor Hicks hugged him. But it was over for Yamin, although Ryan Seacrest said he'd lost by an extremely narrow margin: Yamin received 33.06 percent of the final tally, a record 50 million votes. Without naming names, Seacrest said the other singers racked up 33.26 and 33.68 percent of the votes. "I'm very proud, and I'm honored," Yamin said, adding...

    WASHINGTON, May 10 (Reuters) - The U.S. government posted a larger-than-expected $118.85 billion federal budget surplus in April on strong government receipts, a Treasury Department report showed on Wednesday. The April surplus compared with a $57.71 billion surplus in April 2005. Wall Street economists polled by Reuters were expecting a $90 billion budget surplus for April. The cumulative deficit for the first seven months of fiscal 2006, which began Oct. 1, was $184.14 billion, below the $236.92 billion deficit in the first seven months of fiscal 2005.

    New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is warning contributors that "the right-wing attack machine" is preparing to "'bloody' me up" with a series of ads reminiscent of last year's Swift Boat campaign against John Kerry. "You won't be surprised to learn that Republicans have named me their "'#1 target' in 2006," she says in a mass e-mail this week. "The right-wing attack machine is already warning that they will use the same smear tactics against me that they have used against other Democrats who stand in their way. "One right-wing strategist boasts that his 'Swift-boat' type ads will 'bloody' me up,"...
