    This is Free Republic. Our mission here is to fight against the America-hating, God-hating, capitalism-hating, abortionist/homosexualist leftist revolutionaries and marxist/fascist totalitarians who are hellbent on destroying our constitution, our religious freedom, our economic freedom, our Judeo-Christian way of life and the America we love.

    RealClearPolitics ^ | July 19, 2015 | Rebecca Berg
    Ted Cruz is getting a boost in South Carolina from Rep. Jeff Duncan, who on Monday will announce Cruz as the first headliner for his Faith & Freedom BBQ next month. The event, which in five years has ballooned to the largest Republican event in the Palmetto State, will present a key opportunity for GOP presidential candidates to connect with conservative voters in a state that will help decide the Republican nominee. But, unlike at many party events, where often all candidates are invited to speak, Duncan will this year select only three or four of his favorite Republican contenders,...

When Boehner finally got around to presenting at the end of the program he announced that a lapel pin had bee...

    Free Republic is and will remain a pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-constitution, pro-liberty site. Our constitution took a couple big hits this week, but there is no way we should surrender or give up the fight. America is and always has been a Judeo-Christian nation. We believe our unalienable rights are bestowed upon us by our Creator and cannot be lawfully removed by a godless socialist/fascist government gone awry. We will fight on. As long as God gives me breath, I will fight to defend our Constitution. As the man said, give me liberty or give me death!

    To the memory of Free Republic’s “Kenny Bunk.” Continue to love each other like brothers, and remember always to welcome strangers, for by doing this, some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13, 1-2 Our FRiend Kenny Bunk passed away this weekend.

    . A Note to Conservatives on Trade Agreements Senator Cruz entirely understands the widespread suspicion of the President. Nobody has been more vocal in pointing out the President’s lawlessness or more passionate about fighting his usurpation of congressional authority. Senator Cruz would not and will not give President Obama one more inch of unrestricted power. There have been a lot of questions and concerns about 2the ongoing Pacific trade negotiations. Many of those concerns, fueled by the media, stem from confusion about Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Let’s unpack the issues one by one. What...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz drew raucous cheers yesterday from a crowd of hundreds of Bay State voters gathered at the Andover home of state Rep. Jim Lyons, where the presidential hopeful took shots at presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and President Obama. And while his jabs at Clinton and Obama were met with cheers from the crowd, Cruz’s opening line may have generated the most enthusiastic hollers: “Tom Brady was framed ... and I have it on good authority that Hillary Clinton did it.” The heavy turnout at Lyons’ Highvale Lane home, where some were turned away at the door...

    When I was a kid I thought it would be cool to learn just how many Japanese my dad had killed during the War so I just asked him. He never had a problem telling me about his WWII experiences as a 11th AB paratrooper. But this time he sternly declined to answer. He was always proud of his military service but considered killing other people a necessary evil not something to flaunt. While helping to liberate Manila he received a wound to the top of his head which required a titanium plate to help mend. He lived over 70...

    Three months ago, the lapdog media was convinced that the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch was a "slam dunk." Now, not so much. Lynch, as you may remember, has been characterized as "Eric Holder in a skirt." She committed, under oath, to continue to push Holder's unconstitutional anti-gun executive amnesty. She is in favor of a semi-auto ban, which should be of interest at a time when the Justice Department is using every means possible to ban semi-autos by executive fiat. In addition, when asked about the central pillar of Barack Obama's anti-gun push -- the universal background...

    On February 4, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler proposed that the federal government reclassify the Internet from an ‘information service’ to a ‘telecommunications service’ in the name of keeping it 'fair' --a plan that came straight from Barack Obama's desk.Of course, this is nothing more than a pass for Big Government to expand its regulatory power at the expense of digital freedom. Like all innovation, the Internet wasn’t created by government… and government certainly has no power to control it. Nowhere in the Constitution is there a provision providing the federal government with power to regulate the free-flow...

    February 2nd is Chris Kyle Day, declared Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Abbott announced his intention to make the declaration official later today. The slain hero has come under fire recently as left-of-center celebrities and media personalities have insisted that patriotic Americans honoring Kyle were, in essence, worshiping a “coward” and a soldier who went on “killing sprees,” despite the fact that Kyle’s shooting has been credited with saving the lives of countless numbers of U.S. soldiers. Perhaps discouraged by the complete success of “American Sniper,” the film that memorializes the life of Kyle, left-of-center talking heads reacted in outrage at...
