    In his weekly address released today, President Donald Trump said he is looking forward to talking with Pope Francis about how Christian teaching can put the world on a path to freedom. Trump noted that after his visits in Saudi Arabia and Israel, he will be traveling to the Vatican. “I'll head to the Vatican,” said Trump, “where I will have the great honor of an audience with Pope Francis. I look forward to speaking with the Pope about how Christian teachings can help put the world on a path to justice, freedom, and peace.” {..snip..}

    We're living through a time when there seems to be something new and alarming in the news every day. Our media cycle is dominated by the dramatic, and one consequence of this is that alarming events can unfold on the state and local level going unnoticed despite their ultimately national consequences. One such example is before Oregon's state legislature. First introduced in January, an alarming bill, SB 494, would radically change the meaning of healthcare in that state, with the potential for national ripple effects. SB 494 would put countless medically vulnerable persons at risk of a premature and untimely...

    Does The Washington Post editorial board have the slightest familiarity with First Amendment precedents? In response to the racist-banana incident at the private American University – now under investigation by the U.S. attorney in D.C. as well as the FBI – the editorial board has declared that all colleges should censor students if someone thinks their speech or behavior is racist:

    WBAL Baltimore ^ | May 11, 2017 | by Omar Jimenez
    So far this year, almost 10,000 people have become U.S. citizens in Maryland. One of the newest citizens is a Baltimore Oriole who gave the city nine memorable years. he special ceremony, which happens twice a day in Baltimore, was a little more nerve-wracking than stepping onto the field at Camden Yards. Orioles Hall of Famer Melvin Mora has become a U.S. citizen after 17 years in the country. "I was trying not to cry," Mora said. "I said, 'What am I doing?' You know, I've been hitting with 40,000 people and now my hands are shaking so you know...

    The Daily Signal ^ | May 4, 2017 | Ryan T. Anderson
    President Donald Trump said he’d promote commonsense policies that would “Make America Great Again” and would stand up to politically correct bullying from the left.So why isn’t he doing that in the case of religious freedom?Twice now, he has failed to stand up for commonsense policy on religious liberty when liberal opponents lashed out against it.Back in February, he caved to the protests of liberal special interest groups as he declined to issue an executive order on religious liberty that had been leaked to hostile press.And earlier today, he issued an executive order on “free speech and religious liberty” that...
  • Why people are rich and poor: Republicans and Democrats have very different views

    Pew Research Center ^ | May 2, 2017 | by SAMANTHA SMITH
    Beyond partisan differences over economic policies, there are stark divisions on a fundamental question: What makes someone rich or poor? Most Republicans link a person’s financial standing to their own hard work – or the lack of it. Most Democrats say that whether someone is rich or poor is more attributable to circumstances beyond their control. The public overall is about evenly divided over which has more to do with why a person is rich: 45% say it is because he or she worked harder than most people, while 43% say it is because they had more advantages in life...
  • Pew: More Americans now prefer a bigger gov't with more services to smaller one with fewer services

    That’s not unheard of, according to Pew, but it’s awfully rare over the last 40 years polling. And it doesn’t seem to be a fluke result in light of yesterday’s NBC poll. That survey found 57 percent saying that government should do more to solve problems and meet the needs of Americans, a 20-year high. Pew asked a different question along the same lines: Do you prefer a bigger government that offers more services or a smaller one that offers fewer services? Result: 48/45. The last time that metric was evenly split was 2008.Pew drilled down and asked people...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/24/17 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
    Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through...

    The American left is becoming more brazen. It feels empowered and unashamed to censor conservative speech on campus and elsewhere. It frankly condemns property rights and the free enterprise system. Its champions like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren coldly mock prosperous entrepreneurs and even disparage abundant consumer choice on the shelves of grocery and department stores. That worldview is obviously far from America’s cultural and constitutional roots. In choosing the blessings and risks of independence over the security and servitude of colonial dependence, the founders crafted a constitution carefully structured to protect property, contract, and economic rights.
  • Conservative versus left-wing tax protests

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/19/17 | Daniel Greenfield
    Conservatives want fewer chains. Leftists insist that the problem with the chains is that not everyone is chained down hard enough A conservative tax protest is a protest that taxes are too high, too onerous or illegal. A left-wing tax protest is a demand for more taxes on someone else. Or, in this case, a baseless accusation that someone else isn’t paying enough taxes. It’s hard to think of a better way to summarize the fundamental differences between conservatives and the left when it comes to big government.

    A blog post published Thursday on the Huffington Post's South African version of the site advocated stripping white men of their right to vote. Shelley Garland is an activist and feminist completing a Master of Arts degree in philosophy and "working on ways to smash the patriarchy." "Could It Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?" she asked Thursday in the title of her blog post. "It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them," according to Garland. "If white men...

    They will ignore the facts and believe the lie The ongoing tempest in a tea cup concerning Russian hacking and Trump collusion is merely “Why? Oh, why did Hillary lose?” etched out in Washington double speak through the media megaphone. To sum it all up I’m reminded of a quote from the Wicked Witch of the West, “What a world…what a world.” (Not THAT Wicked Witch of the West the one from the Wizard of Oz.) Here we are in an America where the government can listen to and record every word or keystroke without a warrant and the person...

    This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves 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 government is due to set out how it plans to remove EU law from the statute book when it publishes details of its Great Repeal Bill later. Having formally triggered Brexit, ministers are promising a "smooth and stable transition" with legislation ending the supremacy of EU judges. It will also incorporate thousands of pieces of EU law into UK legislation. The publication comes the day after the UK started two years of talks using Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

    The sooner the president realizes that Ryan is an establishment swamp dwelling snake...that's going to suck him down into the swampy quicksand and destroy his chances of enacting HIS agenda the better off he and we will be. Ryan represents the enemy within! Trump won the election already! Now it's his duty is to change gears, uphold the constitution, drain the swamp and MAGA. Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    My fellow Americans: From the early days of the colonies, prayer in school was practiced and revered as an important tradition. Indeed, for nearly 200 years of our nation's history, it was considered a natural expression of our religious freedom. But in 1962 the Supreme Court handed down a controversial decision prohibiting prayer in public schools. Sometimes I can't help but feel the first amendment is being turned on its head. Because ask yourselves: Can it really be true that the first amendment can permit Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen to march on public property, advocate the extermination of people...
  • Repeal Obamacare and replace with freedom. Change House and Senate rules to do so if necessary!

    "Prior to this year, the House voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times ---when it was clear that President Obama would veto the bill. The problem we are facing is that some of the people who voted for repeal 50 times will not vote for repeal when it counts, when it is "our moment in time," with Republicans in control of Congress and the presidency." --Rep Dave Brat "This has been my complaint since before Obamacare became law. Nothing I’ve seen addresses the problem of increased costs of medical care. All these bills just shift the rising costs from...

    I have a friend who is a retired public school teacher. She is very likeable and in some areas an independent thinker. One day in conversation she brought up the terrible poverty and near-anarchy that prevails just on the other side of America’s southern border. It quickly became clear that she believed America was at fault, that America’s prosperity was somehow the cause of Mexico’s problems. When I asked her what the solution might be, she replied without hesitation that we should get rid of that border, and not stop there but get rid of all borders. Then, she said,...

    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...
