    Minuteman Project ^ | July 10, 2014 | Minuteman Project staff
    (Posted to FreeRepublic.com with the consent of Jim Gilchrist) A Special Announcement from Jim Gilchrist, President of the Minuteman Project The Minuteman Project’s “Operation Normandy” has been launched as of 1200 hours today (Monday, July 7). This event will dwarf the original Minuteman Project of 2005. I expect at least 3,500 non-militia volunteers to participate, plus uncounted groups of militias from all over the country. If you are familiar with the Normandy invasion of France in 1944, then you have an idea how large and logistically complicated this event will be. However, there is one difference.

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Write-in candidate for Mesa County Sheriff Mike Harlow is being endorsed by the Tea Party. This announcement was made on Wednesday at the Old County Courthouse. Harlow is a Navy Veteran with 17 years of Law Enforcement experience. He describes himself as an unaffiliated conservative candidate. "The sheriff is supposed to be the highest-reigning law enforcement in the county. I’ll make sure that is known and we won't back up to anybody. If I think they don't have business here, then they'll have to lave," said Mike Harlow. Harlow has experience working as a K-9 Police Dog...

    ...America is partly a imagining of a world without America, but more powerfully it is a virtual courtroom drama as the filmmakers lay out, then carefully refute the Lefts' moral indictments of America: to wit: that America stole the land from Native Americans and Mexico and stole the labor of slaves and the resources from the third world to build its remarkable wealth. Part of the strength of the film is that it uses interviews with leading intellectuals on the Left, including Noam Chomsky, Ward Churchill, Michael Eric Dyson and Alan Dershowitz. It also featured a good deal of archival...

    POLLS: Too Close to Call With the election TOMORROW, polls are showing the race between conservative Chris McDaniel and establishment entrenched Thad Cochran a virtual dead-heat.   While the Cochran campaign had a slight edge just one week ago, the McDaniel campaign has seen considerable momentum as of of late due to endorsements by major national conservative leaders from across the country such as Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and many more.  The election is TOMMOROW and represents one of the only opportunities for the Tea Party to oust a U.S. Senate Republican establishment career politician in Thad Cochran.  With the...

    One week to the June 3rd GOP primary for senator in New Jersey! This week is CRUCIAL for Rich Pezzullo, as he is running in perhaps the most underwatched yet IMPORTANT primary in the country. He is polling either #1 or #2, depending on the poll or the flavor of the day. Nonetheless, he is the most consistently conservative candidate in the race who will caucus with the Ted Cruz / Mike Lee wing of the Republican Party if he wins the primary, then beats Cory Booker. I'll be blunt: This race is not just important for the senate seat,...

    MADISONVILLE, LA - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has unanimously endorsed Col. Rob Maness (ret.) in the Louisiana race for United States Senate.

National security? Commie health care? Big government?...
