    CNN, or the Clinton News Network, is not fit to host debates. They have proved time and again that they’re far too biased to be fair and balanced – especially after discovering the collusion between CNN and the DNC in the hacked emails released by Wikileaks – they are not fit to hold the debates. Trump supporters are banning together to stop the Clinton News Network from hosting a single debate. The hashtag Trump supporters are using to organize information on the protest is #BanCNN. The Trump movement is powerful – thanks to our CNN Blackout, their ratings took a...
  • Hillary Clinton health scare goes mainstream, with her defenders fighting rearguard action

    Hillary Clinton "lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on" the war against terrorists, Donald Trump said earlier this month. Isn't that an unusual way for the Republican presidential candidate to attack his opponent's plans for combating the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda? That's the wrong question, because it's not what Trump's comment is about. In his usual roundabout way, he's really attacking Clinton's health, highlighting a conspiracy theory that has roiled the right-wing corner of the internet ever since Clinton suffered a severe concussion in 2012. Slowly but surely, insinuations about dementia and other supposed Clinton illnesses have gone...

"The conventional Republican story about America isn’t relevant to ordinary people anymmore." Also from the article, which is a great analysis about white people, and America in general, being demonized for decades: "The conventional right has done almost nothing about this other than complain. It has not defunded universities. It has not moved to seize university endowments. It has not moved to remove accreditation from universities that participate in it."

    Donald Trump trumpeted such a tough message on illegal immigration Wednesday night that hardliner Ann Coulter said that she would listen to the speech every night. "I think I'll watch this speech every night before going to bed so that I will sleep like a baby," Coulter tweeted Wednesday night during Trump's major immigration policy speech in Phoenix, Ariz. "I hear Churchill had a nice turn of phrase, but Trump's immigration speech is the most magnificent speech ever given." Coulter got worried when Trump said recently that he was considering a "softening" his stance on illegal immigrants; but her fears...

    August 31, 2016, 10:13 pm Trump: Maybe we can deport Clinton By Jonathan Swan Donald Trump joked about deporting Hillary Clinton during a fiery speech outlining his immigration policies on Wednesday night. Trump, the Republican nominee, had just finished laying out the ways he plans to crack down on the violent criminal illegal immigrants he wants to round up and deport. He told the raucous Phoenix crowd that as president he'd be establishing a "special deportation task force" to "find the most dangerous illegals who have evaded justice." Trump suddenly segued to Clinton. "Just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice,"...

    Although he trails in nearly all national surveys and polls of most battleground states, Donald Trump still has a potential route to victory, albeit a difficult one that would require him to coax many people who sat out the last election to vote this time around, the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll finds. The existence of a bloc of disaffected voters large enough to potentially swing the election Trump’s way is the main finding from an analysis of the first eight weeks of the daily tracking poll. Whether Trump can convert a significant number of those potential supporters...

The poll finds Clinton garners 41 percent to Trump’s 39 percent, while Libertarian Gary Johnson receives 9 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 4 percent.

Instead, during a joint press conference in Mexico Wednesday, Peña affirmed that the two men would work together to end illegal immigration if Trump is elected president. "What a poor, lukewarm and fearful response by [Nieto] before Trump," Ramos tweeted in Spanish Wednesday. Where is the indignation to Trump's insults?" "Trump leaves Mexico without...

    A new Emerson College Polling Society poll has good news for North Carolina Republicans after several polls put Democrats in the lead here. The survey of 800 likely voters found GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump with 45 percent support to 43 percent support for Democrat Hillary Clinton. In the U.S. Senate race, Republican incumbent Sen. Richard Burr had 45 percent, with Democrat Deborah Ross receiving 41 percent. Burr’s lead is barely outside the poll’s 3.4 percent margin of error. The margin also means the presidential race is statistically tied in North Carolina. Other recent polls have given a narrow lead...

When grabbing a morning cup of joe, Democrats choose a blue cup while those leaning Republican pick up a red cup. Given the tumultuous nature of this year’s election, 7-Eleven decided to include a ballot option...

The vote to impeach Rousseff was 61 to 20. Two-thirds of senators — 54 out of 81 — were needed for impeachment to pass. Senators broke into cheering and applause after the electronic voting was announced and sang the national anthem, concluding a process that was given the go-ahead in December. But a second vote to strip Rousseff of her political rights for eight years fell well short of the required...

Now Kobach, the Republican secretary of state for Kansas, is embroiled in court fights over his repeated attempts to require Kansans to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote. Although he has repeatedly lost in court, one case that remains open will determine whether thousands of Kansans will be able to vote in November's local and state elections.

    Mark Levin aka "The Great One" has always been a great constitutional conservative and great friend of Free Republic. Doesn't post much anymore but has had an account here (holdonnow) from nearly the beginning. He stood up for FR when his good friend Hannity was running us down. Also when O'Reilly accused us of not moderating our forum good enough against racism. I hate to see our good friend getting trashed on FR. I understand why people are upset with him over his position against Trump, but best advice I can give is if you can't stand him, don't listen....

    Can one man -- a man who died in 1831 -- be blamed for Nazism, Communism and even the uprisings in places like Milwaukee and Ferguson? Karl Popper, Leo Strauss and Ayn Rand all suggested G.W.F Hegel, the greatest philosopher of the nineteenth century, contributed to the most malignant totalitarian systems in history.

    Hillary Clinton pitched her foreign policy to Republican voters in a speech to the American Legion on Wednesday, arguing that she would best uphold American values and protect national security interests. At the veterans' group annual convention in Cincinnati, the Democratic presidential nominee called the United States an "exceptional nation," and accused Republican rival Donald Trump of thinking that approach is "insulting to the rest of the world." Clinton said the country has a "unique and unparalleled ability to be a force for peace and progress." She questioned Trump's support for the military and hit him for his last-minute trip...

    The announcement of Republican Nominee Donald Trump’s visit to Mexico to meet with President Nieto sent shockwaves throughout the media. However, not everyone is excited by the prospect of Trump smoothening things with our neighbor to the South. Instead, a slew of rambunctious Twitter users would prefer to see Trump assassinated during his visit.
