  • The Tedious, Tiresome Mendacity of Obama and the Gun Banners

    Original Material | 7/24/2016 | By Laz A. Mataz
    Like a clock, every single time there is a media-hyped mass-shooting, Obama rotely returns to his podium and calls for gun bans and strict firearms regulations. It has almost become cliché. He, of course, WILL NOT speak to the motivations of the assailants, except one time, when Dillon Root -- a true racist who happened to be photographed in front of a Confederate Flag -- and in this example, Obama spoke quite a bit about incentive, when he was not focused on gun control.Most of the rest of the attacks were motivated by Islamics who were strictly interpreting the Quran,...

    1 John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh indarkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darknesshath blinded his eyes. There were two unifying speeches at the Convention which will go down as historic. One by the villain who everyone told if he gave it he would destroy his career and the other which made Donald Trump the overwhelming favorite to win in a tsunami of hardhats. One was a rant of pure ambition and anger while the other was born out of just anger. They both accomplished a unification of the Party...

    A Call to Action ! Fellow Freepers, Fellow Citizens. Please allow me to ask a favor of all of you on behalf or our country. It has been but little more than a few hours since Donald J. Trump gave his speech accepting the Republican nomination for the Presidency of the United States. No doubt many of you were as moved as I was by a man who genuinely loves America and is not afraid to stand up in front of the world and proclaim that love. If this was a rational and sane time in our nation's history that...

    The heart of the lawsuits against Trump University is that it isn't actually a university, based on the fact that it doesn't issue accredited degrees. Neither, of course does CGI University. Never heard of it? It's the Clinton Global Initiative University. Trump University teaches you how to be an entrepreneur; Clinton University teaches you how to "make a personal commitment for change." Unlike Trump University, there are no curricula. From its web site: Since 2008, students have made more than 6,250 Commitments to Action, and nearly $3 million in funding has been awarded to these commitment-makers. That's less than $500...

    President Hillary and her liberal activist courts will ensure Democrat rule over America for generations by awarding amnesty and citizenship to tens of millions of illegal aliens, er, undocumented citizens, and they'll throw open our borders to flood the country with tens of millions more. And they'll set up government programs to help them sign-up for welfare, food stamps, free housing, free phones, free healthcare and even help them register to vote as democrats. Republicans will be wandering in the wilderness for the next 40 years and more. Don't let it happen. Vote Trump!

    Many years ago when Obama began running for office, he met Penny Pritzker, the heir to the Hyatt Hotel Chain. She became his friend, benefactor, campaign contributor and fundraiser. After winning his second term in office, Obama appointed her to Secretary of Commerce. Penny Pritzker set up overseas trusts to avoid paying taxes in the USA. These trusts were largely set up by the Kanter Law Firm in Chicago, Burton Kanter. The Kanter law firm arranged the financing of the Hyatt Hotel Chain mainly through the Metropolitan and Prudential insurance companies, for which Burton Kanter received great kickbacks.

    Why are the effects of the Colorado convention still lingering, and why have they taken on a life of their own? It's certainly not because of "Trump's whining." If you believe that every criticism of every campaign event by ANY side is "whining," well, yeah, Trump "whined" (just as Cruz's supporters seem to be "whining" about the NY dinner). If you want to take that line, why has this seemingly touched a nerve that Trump's "whining" about so many other things did not? History is replete with instances where the specific developments were badly misunderstood, misreported, or didn't happen at...

    You could see it scattered across multiple headlines by Sunday night. Trump LOSES weekend delegate fight in five states! To read these ledes and the twitter feeds of the #NeverTrump crowd you’d have thought there were nearly a half dozen elections you somehow slept through and Trump had been trounced in all of them. The reality, of course, is that there weren’t any public elections and the only time Trump was actually beaten anywhere in recent memory was in Wisconsin. But what Trump was losing at was the race to collect delegates who are loyal to him and will...
  • Path to certain failure: NeverTrump + NeverCruz = NeverWin = LostSCOTUS = LostFreedom = LostNation

    04/13/2016 2:36:02 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 513 replies
    Captain obvious here again, but NeverTrump/NeverCruz is not the way. We all have our favorites, but don't lose sight of the mission. The mission on FR is to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our POSTERITY!! It's a lot bigger than you or me or our personal opinions or egos. It's about the very survival of our nation and the promise of freedom for future generations. Reagan said that freedom is never more than one generation from extinction and he was 100% correct. President Clinton or President Sanders means the end of freedom in America. Do not let...
  • The Prosecution of Hillary Clinton

    As a former prosecutor and now defense attorney, I’ve had a number of thoughts about Clinton’s case, which mostly deal with tactics and logistics and not so much with the actual evidence itself. For these thoughts, I put myself in the shoes of the U.S. Attorney who gets this case dumped in his lap. What, exactly, are you dealing with? 1. Your defendant, thanks to the very graft machine you are expected to prosecute, will have access to almost unlimited financial resources. Unless the FBI has identified all the shady “shell corporations” where Hillary has hidden her money, and you...
  • Thomas Jefferson Defends the Slander of RedState and National Enquirer

    Thomas Jefferson in Wikiquote ^ | 4/10/2016 | Pocono Pundit
    Thousands of columns have been written that attack the Republican candidates.  And I daresay, Free Republic has probably excerpted several thousand of them. As a Trumpster, I'd certainly rank RedState as the most outrageous liar and most vicious attacker of all the blogazines that seem to be dedicated to sinking Donald Trump.  National Review comes in a close second. And if you're a Cruzer, you probably wouldn't shed a single tear to discover the National Enquirer had been accidentally torpedoed and sent to Davy Jones' locker. But slander is actually as old as the Republic! Have a listen to...
  • Mullahs in Iran Deserve No “Gold Rush”

    Some may consider the status quo as a good period for the oppressive dictator in Iran. With U.S. President Barack Obama generously relieving most sanctions under the nuclear deal, the mullahs have jumped to the opportunity for saber-rattling by test launching ballistic missiles, caring less about violating numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions. Tehran has with the utmost temerity humiliated America by capturing its sailors and provoked emotions through firing unguided rockets at a dangerously close range from U.S. ships. Despite all this, President Hassan Rouhani is on a campaign to convince the West Iran is actually a wise place...

    Rudyard Kipling wrote a prescient poem in 1919, called "Gods of the Copybook Headings.". This is, simply put, a must-read poem. Copybooks were texts that allowed British schoolchildren of the time to practice penmanship, and the phrase they would copy -- often a phrase of a sermon, or some wise aphorism -- would be featured on the copybook heading. Kipling was appalled by the counterintuitive modern thoughts of the day, and wrote the poem to point out how eons of wisdom and experience of humankind were hard-won, and he urged us not to embrace the depraved 'shortcuts' we began to...
  • 'Devastating' New Ted Cruz Sex Scandal Brewing

    Late last month we learned from the National Enquirer that Ted Cruz has had up to seven different mistresses. Sure the Enquirer isn’t the most reliable source, but they did beak the John Edwards sex scandal. Now Ted is going after them for running the story. That begs the question, is it because he is guilty? Now that Ted Cruz seems the only competitor for Donald Trump for the nomination for president, the wheels seem to be falling off the wagon. The Cruz fans weathered the Enquirer story by writing it off as fiction. But when the attorney for the...

    Exodus 13:2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine. Oh boy Trump stepped in it again by claiming women should be punished for having abortions. The Conservotocracy had a collectivist cow over the thought feminists would be offended by something a Republican would say. What was worse is he did not celebrate it or make a victim of the woman, but did the unthinkable and made the baby the victim. Perhaps having his fifth grandchild this week made the debate more personal than...

    GOP Delegate and Popular Vote Analysis The idea that the GOP Establishment is now openly pushing for a brokered convention where neither Trump or Cruz becomes the nominee is atrocious and a blatant attempt to subvert the will of the people. Here the thing. Two candidates, both of them recognized as anti-establishment candidates to the GOPe have garnered the following thus far through the votes in 35 states: Delegates - 78.42% (Almnost 80% of the delegates) Popular Vote - 64.69% of the popular vote. Clearly, the PEOPLE are saying very loudly that they do not want any of the establishment...
