  • Gun owners need to take action

    I am going to throw this out there as an incomplete idea, in the hope that some of our more astute FReepers can put some real thought into it, and make some serious suggestions. I believe that a certain level of "gun violence" is a price we pay for freedom. I also believe that a good deal of that violence associated with drug crime and the like could be addressed and minimized with harsher penalties and a widespread program to both saturate violence prone communities with knowledge of those penalties, demonstrate to members of those communities that cooperation with police...

    It's happening. The media are melting down and going into hysterics about Brazil's election of Jair Bolsonaro, AKA "Tropical Trump," to its presidency. Here's a starter tweet from a Washington Post contributor to show the pattern: This is a photo of Brazil’s new president Jair Bolsonaro’s two sons wearing IDF and Mossad shirts. Israel has become a symbol for authoritarianism around the world. Hear that? Israel, authoritarian, get it? What planet does this person live on? Bolsonaro is very pro-Israel, and Israelis are delighted by the support. Bolsonaro has vowed to move Brazil's embassy to Jerusalem in a bid to...
  • Hungary Marks Anniversary of 1956 Soviet Retaliation

    Hungary Today ^ | 2018.11.05.
    Addressing a commemoration event at the Rákoskeresztúr Cemetery, where victims of the Soviet retaliation after the revolution are buried in unmarked graves, Justice Minister László Trócsányi said November 4 was “a national day of mourning but also a day of progress”. The heroes and martyrs of 1956 must be remembered and thought of with gratitude, the minister said in the cemetery’s national park of mourning. “1956 spoke to the conscience of Europe and the world,” Trócsányi said. “Nothing has moved the conscience of the free world as the Hungarian revolution.” “October 23, 1956 was borne out of hope, and this...

    A sign In Vice-President Pence's home town in Indiana, in the Front Window of a Business: WE WOULD RATHER DO BUSINESS WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA, HILLARY CLINTON, NANCY PELOSI, HARRY REID, ALL THE ELITES OF CONGRESS, THE MASS MEDIA, AND ALL OF HOLLYWOOD THAN WITH ONE CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN!!! This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Whiting, Indiana (V-P Pence's home town). You are probably either outraged, or saddened, or elated, depending on your political persuasion. However, we are a society which holds the Freedom of Speech, as perhaps our greatest liberty; and after all. it is...

    The domain Gab.com has landed at Epik. This post will summarize why Epik welcomed Gab.com. It will also address why I believe the operators of the site have the right to be online. De-Platforming is Digital Censorship. Blacklisting is Digital Shunning. For those not familiar with the case, Gab.com’s ability to operate was abruptly terminated by Godaddy, among other vendors, who deemed Gab to have violated their terms of service. This de-platforming of Gab generated much discussion in the mainstream technology press. It also prompted a lively discussion in the professional domain name community, including at the popular discussion board...

    This presentation, Duress, Dissidents & Deadly Force, was originally given by Mark Passio in Glendale, AZ on March 10, 2018 as part of the Truth, Mind Reality Conference. In this incendiary presentation, Mark Passio explains the condition of duress under which human beings perpetually live, and the complete moral illegitimacy of that state of coercion and violence. From time to time throughout history, a small percentage of human beings – true dissidents – awakened to the realization that the condition of duress in which they were held was unacceptable to the point that they were willing to give their very...

    Ladies and gentlemen of America, Nov. 6 is only days away and your country is calling you! Picture President Donald Trump making his way waist-high through a vile and treacherous swamp, Home Office of the Deep State. Is that a tree stump up ahead, or a camouflaged crocodile lying in wait? You won’t know until what you may have mistaken for a harmless tree stump clamps its teeth into you, getting a grip good enough for the drowning finale. There are many creatures of different stripes who loiter in the swamp, where so many booby traps lie in wait.

    This is a compilation of the many, many things that American Democrats (often radical totalitarian communists wearing the mantle of “progressive liberals”) want to ban. This is a running tabulated list that originated from an earlier post about busybodies. There, I argued that Social Justice Warriors (SJW) was just another name for a busybody. This is a set aside list tabulated by request. It supersedes the extensive list on an earlier post about busybodies. Remember, boys and girls, all bans are a restriction on freedom. Go ahead and shake your head in disbelief. These people are friggin’ lunatics. Ban...

    Don't talk about the Red-Wave, be part of it to save America, to save your freedom, to save your families, to save your future THIS will ask the undeniable question: Are you aware of just how close we are to losing our Constitutional Republic? President Trump recently said that many people have told him that they will not be voting in the midterms because he was not on the ballot. So why vote? What part about THIS do these people not understand? Hopefully, you are not one of them, because nothing could be further from the truth. PDJT and his...

    Washington Times ^ | October 14, 2018 | Helen E. Krieble
    Astonishingly, today’s Americans expect government to care for us from cradle to grave, the way commoners once expected a benevolent king to care for his subjects. We treat people as members of groups rather than as individuals, insidiously devolving into the very class system against which the Founders rebelled. Americans are voluntarily surrendering the very freedoms that millions fought and died to establish and protect. President James Garfield once said the most common form of death in politics is suicide. After a noble 225-year history, is the American experiment dying at the hands of its own people? Many of the...

    HONESDALE, Pa. -- Lighted religious symbols in Wayne County may have to go dark. Borough leaders were told an illuminated cross and star celebrating the holidays in a public park are unconstitutional. The cross and star are in a public park in Honesdale. A Newswatch 16 investigation found borough leaders are only now finding out about a letter sent to the mayor months ago claiming both are unconstitutional and should be removed. The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the mayor of Honesdale back in June. It says someone filed a complaint about the star and cross on...

    Socialism is hot.Famous actors recently made a commercial proclaiming that "democratic socialism" creates some of the best parts of America. It's "your kids' public school" (says Susan Sarandon), the "interstate highway system" (Rosario Dawson), "public libraries" (Jay Ferguson), "EMTs" (Ethan Embry), "workers who plow our streets" (Max Carver) and "scientists" (Danny DeVito).Wow. I guess every popular thing government does is socialism.The celebrities conclude: "We can do better when we do them together."There is sometimes truth to that, but the movie stars don't know that America's first highways were built by capitalist contractors. They also probably didn't notice that the more...

    Good display clearly un-American ideas, methods during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings; the Soviet courts would not have treated the enemies of socialism any better during the Great Purge in the 1930s If they break so blatantly and without regard to decency, truth, ethics, and respect for the Republic, all the rules that obstruct their getting what they want for a supposedly good cause even when they are but a minority opposition party, then what would make you think that they will not do the same for a bad cause when they grab a monopoly on political power? If they so...

    For those who know that "ignoring history dooms us to repeat it", I am reminded about stories that my Ukrainian dad used to tell me, with tears in his eyes, when I was young, on the train rides from CT to NY to visit his immigrant family. My dad immigrated/escaped in 1916 and today's events, though not exactly like those he relayed, are eerily similar in scope; are we doomed to repeat the history of about a century ago?

    Several aspects of the face-off between the Democratic nominee for governor of Florida, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and, as of Monday, former Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis are likely to be bellwethers signaling America’s political future. Furthermore, look for the contest to feature passion and fireworks that will explode during the battle to lead the nation’s third most populous state. This epic race will be light-years beyond any normal, nasty, expensive gubernatorial election campaign because “liberal” Gillum and “conservative” DeSantis are stand-ins representing all that divides our nation. Here is what the Florida gubernatorial race is really about: 1. The ballot...

    Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has smoked marijuana live on the web during a podcast with comedian Joe Rogan. Mr Rogan offered his guest the drug, which is legal in California, as the pair discussed tech innovation and the public's perception of Mr Musk. "I mean, it's legal, right?" asked the Tesla founder, before taking a drag on the joint. Last month, Mr Musk said he was not "on weed" when he tweeted about plans to make Tesla a private firm. The business leader made the comments in an interview with the New York Times. He also told the newspaper he...
