    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said last week that she supports a filibuster to stop the Supreme Court nomination of federal Judge Neil Gorsuch, claiming that he is “way outside the mainstream.” “We need to have a judge who’s kind of acceptable to both sides,” Warren said on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition Friday. “That’s the reason there’s a 60-vote rule in effect on Supreme Court nominees.” “I don’t think Neil Gorsuch meets that standard,” Warren said. “Here’s someone — read his record.” “In every opportunity to choose between corporate interests, big corporations and the little guy — employees, women, consumers...

    Democrats in Montana are employing a "raunchy" sketch cabaret show to raise money for Rob Quist, the party's banjo-playing nominee in the special election to fill the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke. ... The show, put on by Viscosity Theatre, has earned attention for its "silly, ridiculous and raunchy" skits, such as its trademark "Proud to be a Homosexual" song, which is performed as a parody of "Proud to be an American." ... Quist got in hot water this week after it was reported by the Associated Press that he had been evading paying taxes for nearly a decade....

    Tomi Lahren, The Blaze TV host who once declared herself “too controversial” for Fox News, is back in the job market today. Page Six is reporting Lahren is “permanently banned” from The Blaze TV, where she hosted “Tomi,” a daily news talk show. The departure does not come as a surprise to most media observers. Lahren, who boasts 4.2 million Facebook fans, was suspended all of last week for comments she made on The View, calling conservatives hypocrites for being for smaller government and pro-life. The Blaze is owned by conservative radio host Glenn Beck, and the company has recently...

    Media outlets have labeled Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) as the new Democratic leader for millennials to rally behind. Various publications have been revving up coverage of Waters as a millennial icon after the congresswoman abruptly left a confidential meeting with FBI Director James Comey, claiming he did not have any credibility. In late January, Elle magazine published an article titled, "Congresswoman Maxine Waters Will Read You Now." The article talks about Waters' impressive "shade"–meaning the ability to underhandedly insult people–calling her "this week's Shade Bae." "I'm tempted to elect Congresswoman Waters as this week's Shade Bae, but shade is...

It is the exact opposite,” Perez said. “We look into culture and we look into society to help us explain why violence is tolerated and used so effectively by so many different groups as a mechanism for maintaining social control and order.” Perez spoke at great lengths on the forms that violence may take and how it often manifests itself in society without being entirely recognized. He found direct violence, the physical or verbal abuse of individuals, may lead to structural violence, in which a sociopolitical...

    Last week, government officials banned most carry-on electronic devices from U.S.-bound flights originating in more than a dozen Middle Eastern and African countries. The reason was due to an increase in terror threats. No judges are stopping the ban on electronic devices. No states are suing because the law discriminates against predominantly Muslim countries. Most everyone accepts that our security agencies can look out for us when they perceive a real threat from certain countries. Last February, a bomb disguised as a laptop computer damaged an aircraft taking off from the Somali capital, Mogadishu. But just because we can successfully...

    If you were opposed to the Obamacare replacement bill, the American Healthcare Act (AHCA), it was probably because it was hardly the Obamacare replacement we were promised. Congressional Republicans had no problem holding countless votes to repeal all of or parts of Obamacare when Barack Obama was president, yet all of a sudden there’s a hold up, despite the promise there would be an Obamacare repeal bill on Trump’s desk his first week in office. Unfortunately, the AHCA turned out to be nothing more than Obamacare-lite. Daniel Horowitz summed up the problem in Conservative Review, that “the sum of the...

    A civil war has begun. This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control. The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it...

All of the previous opposition to single-provider has been kicked out of the...

Friday's failure on healthcare legislation, the North Carolina Republican said, does not mean that the effort to replace Obamacare is dead.

Healthcare, drug prices, premiums and deductibles must come way down. I am in the individual market - we must have associations to distribute risk...

    Congress approved on Thursday night an Obamacare repeal package that serves as a double-edged sword for Republicans: while a boon to conservative senators running for president, it could jeopardize some of their GOP colleagues running for reelection in swing states in 2016. The Senate voted, 52 to 47, on Thursday night to repeal large portions of Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood. The repeal was wrapped inside a budget reconciliation bill that needed a simple majority of 51 senators to make good on a longstanding promise to voters that a GOP-led Congress would eliminate large portions of Obamacare. But after months...

Not a bad idea—except in addition to hiding Hitler cosplay, it also scrubbed G-rated LGBTQ content.

Fillon, a former front-runner who is now lagging in polls following a financial scandal, had earlier this week accused Socialist President Francois Hollande of orchestrating a plot against him. In comments reminiscent of U.S. President Donald Trump's accusations against former president Barack Obama, Fillon and his team are now raising allegations of wiretapping.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan oversaw the burial of House Republicans’ opposition. His toothless and feckless compromise bill — ObamaCare Lite — was DOA. Good riddance. Ryan used to parade his fondness for the economics of Ayn Rand, but when push came to shove, he made a Greenspan career move — another official Ayn Rand fan before he got into power. Ryan wimped out. He played ball in a rigged game. He went with the flow . . ....

    A thread on 4chan with an FBI insider confirms everyone’s worst suspicions. The Hillary Clinton email server was merely a distraction from the Clinton Foundation and most of DC is in up to their necks in what could be the biggest scandal of all times. It certainly is the biggest presidential scandal since Watergate.,Truth Uncensored reported. New York Police Department detectives and sources working an underage child pornography case against Anthony Weiner confirm the laptop seized from the former congressman contains proof that Hillary Clinton knew he was engaging in a long sexual relationship with a minor but did not...

    Violence erupted at a “Make America Great Again” rally in California Saturday when supporters of President Trump clashed with a group of counter-protesters. Multiple skirmishes broke out after a group of black-clad Trump haters confronted dozens of the President’s supporters as they marched through Huntington Beach. At least two Trump fans were hit with pepper-spray — setting in motion a wild fracas that saw the President’s supporters attacking a masked man with their fists, feet and flags. Jennifer Sterling, who organized the rally, was among those struck by pepper spray. “It was a quick reaction,” she said. “There was about...

    Dan Rather says the failure of the GOP healthcare bill to pass is the most "staggering loss" he's ever seen so early in a president's term, warning Americans that the blame game by the Trump administration is just beginning. "Stunning. A complete defeat that I don't think anyone would have predicted in the manner that took place," the former "CBS Evening News" anchor wrote in a Facebook post Friday. "The morass of blame is only beginning."

    Other sculptures at the festival in Istanbul include John Lennon, Nelson Mandela and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. One of the highlights at a Turkish chocolate festival has been U.S. President Donald Trump — made of cake icing. It took Turkish chef Tuba Geckil two days to make the imposing bust of Trump, clad from mid-torso in an edible jacket and striped tie.

    Judge Jeanine declares, “Ryan has hurt you, going forward, and he’s got to go,” and she’s rightly suspicious of his motives and whether this was a calculated failure purely intended to damage the President. She closes with a warning, “The American people won’t forget this and neither should the President.”
  • The Real Repeal Obamacare Bill has been Languishing in Committee since February 10

    I have mentioned on several occasions that a bill could be written with one line in it that would completely repeal the Affordable Care Act.  However, even I didn't know that a bill was introduced on January 3, 2017 that does just that.  However, it has been languishing in a subcommittee since February 10 while establishment Republicans broke their promises to the American people to repeal Obamacare and trotted out RINOCare, for which they did not have the votes. HR 175, The Repeal Obamacare Act, was introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-IA).  The bill repeals the Patient Protection and Affordable...

    Don’t take this the wrong way because I actually like Congressman Louis Gohmert a lot. However, this sketchy all-over-the-map interview is at an almost Tippy Guam level of bizzarro. The sum total of this interview would be exhibit “A” in the sketchy trial of “methinks he doth protest too much”, the Broadway musical. Um, Louie.. dude. Rather than shout: “he lie”, “he lie”, “heeee lieeeee”; I’m left wondering if your hands or fingers are broken. Why didn’t Louis Gohmert, a sitting member of congress, just walk over to the Senate and ask the Parliamentarian herself – if he had a...

    Free Republic stands for God, family, country. We generally look to Judeo-Christian* guidance on issues of law, morality, justice, freedom, life, family and civil society. And we have a Christian self-governing, self-reliant, individual accountability & responsibility, you gotta work if able-bodied and want to eat attitude on cultural and societal issues. And a Christian pro-Constitution, original intent, pro-liberty, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, restricted government, small government, states rights, individual rights, free enterprise position on political and civil matters. *Note: I say Judeo-Christian because Jesus was a Jew and referred to the Ten Commandments, Jewish law, beliefs and customs and the scripture...
