  • What is this? FreeRepublic is blocked on Amtrak WIFI as an offensive site!

    Yesterday, my girlfriend and I borded an Amtrak passenger train in Stockton to travel to visit her friends in Visalia for Thanksgiving. Amtrak offers its passengers free WIFI as part of their amenities on the trip. As part of the log on, it specifies that Amtrak block access to "offensive" web sites, but otherwise allows free access to the Internet. I agreed to their conditions and found myself connected. Four attempts to connect to FreeRepublic resulted in being notified that my browser could not connect to the server! Thinking FR might be down, I turned off my WIFI, and reverted...

    If you’re like many in the conservative community, you go to Free Republic to discuss the issues of the day, find out the news and see that you're not alone. Why? Because you know you will receive absolutely the best information, views, strategies and tactics in advancing the cause and nullifying the statist progressive/liberals and their outlandish, un-American plans and actions. And you also know that you’ll be treated like a real person, by other conservatives in a warm, caring, if somewhat challenging environment. Your contributions have helped make Free Republic the leading conservative website that it is. We are...
  • Free Republic's Facebook Page: Out of Control

    I'm appealing to Jim, John or any of the mods to come clean things up a bit on the Facebook group. We have a large number of unrestricted trolls posting spam, conspiracy theories and nonsense. I run one or two groups as large as this, and would be happy to be a moderator, but a lot of the members are getting pretty frustrated with the lack of moderation. A little help? Thanks.

    As a relative n00b, I remember when I first signed up on FR and being careful not to post anything at first for fear of ***SOB*** FReeper ridicule, that most every Sunday evening, some DUer or other troll would post some stupid, provocative thread just to piss FReepers off.The retaliation by FReepers was immediate and relentless. The troll was soundly over-powered by logic and facts that completely destroyed their point.The Viking kitties emerged and the trolls were soundly zotted into oblivion.Anyhoo, I haven't seen a good, Sunday evening ZOT in awhile. Do you have any favorite ZOTS that you remember?

    The Internal Revenue Service, which claims to be so understaffed that it can’t bother to collect unpaid taxes, or search backup tapes for Lois Lerner’s “missing” emails, apparently has plenty of time to read the comment threads on conservative blogs that have been critical of the agency (Hi there, IRS agents!). William Jacobson, one of the best-informed and most effective critics of the agency, writes on Legal Insurrection: Hey, remember the Reader Poll we did about whether it was okay to follow and try to interview Lois Lerner in her neighborhood?

    In July, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin wrote a widely-publicized op-ed for Breitbart News. “Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president,” she wrote. “Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America.” Then, she dropped the bomb: “It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” Believe it or not,...

  • Dems on FEC move to regulate internet campaigns, blogs, Drudge

    10/24/2014 5:13:16 PM PDT · by knak · 64 replies
    In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that the left wants to regulate conservative political sites and even news outlets like the Drudge Report. Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said. The powerplay followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote...

    There has been mounting evidence in the last two weeks that the Internet, one of the last unregulated venues for communication, might well be headed for federal regulation. What makes the specter of Internet regulation (or "net neutrality," as its proponents prefer to call it) all the more ominous is that it might become law through rulings by the Federal Communications Commission rather than a vote of elected representatives in Congress. On Sept. 24, the Washington Post reported that the FCC was working with activists seeking to generate comments in favor of tough, 1930s-style regulation of telephone. In what the...

    No, FR is not trying to quash satire. However, it should be clearly labeled as such in the title. Some people seem to think it's great trickling our readers into falling for satire. It's not. A lot of people come to FR and scan the headlines clicking on articles of interest. If they're not familiar with the author or source, they may be misled and may even pass it on to others. No thanks. If you post satire, please label it as "satire' in the title. Thanks

Who knows if some troll got p-o'd or if WH trolls are involved in having set up the threat notice at Google. I don't know what the mods can do.

Obama's continuing lawlessness is totally out of control and is now threatening our very existence as a free Republic. Not only is he not securing the border, he's doing the exact opposite. They tried getting a "Dream Act" through the congress to give amnesty to young illegal aliens, but it was rejected by the representatives of we the people in congress, so the president has unconstitutionally "passed" his own "Dream Act" and is now enforcing it rather than the immigration laws legally...

Robinson, writing on the Free Republic website last week about “defend(ing) the border” to “protest Obama’s lawless open borders policies,” name checked the hippy-ish coastal community in his fight to protect America from, if recent headlines are any indication, thousands of desperate children fleeing poverty in the Hispanic third world. “We have independent units from the...

Civilian protestors have coordinated to challenge the transportation of illegal immigrants throughout the country by Department of Homeland Security agents. Other civilians, organized into militia groups, have moved troops to Arizona and Texas to assist in closing a border that the federal government seems content to leave open despite the growing...

    On Thursday, CEO Brendan Eich of Mozilla was forced out of his job thanks to his $1,000 donation to the Proposition 8 pro-traditional marriage effort in California in 2008. At that point, he held the exact same position as Barack Obama on traditional marriage. Now, that position has soured in the nostrils of the militant left, which seeks to ruin the lives of those with whom it disagrees. ~~snip~~ Google Adsense Shuts Down WorldNetDaily.

    Via MofoPolitics, which is responsible for the clip, and Free Republic, where the Romney 3.0 movement is, shall we say, off to a bad start in the comments. I’m 90 percent sure she’s joking but there’s no way to be sure: Any conservative willing to offer three cheers for RomneyCare qualifies, indisputably, as a true blue Mitt fan.

    UPDATE: The images appear to be the work of a Los Angeles artist Leonard Sabo, who posted an attempt at the design back on March 9. I’ve reached out to Sabo for comment, and will update when I hear back.

    <p>Don't do it. Prayer requests are ok, but asking for money is not.</p> <p>There is absolutely no way that we can vet people asking for money on the internet and so our policy is not to allow personal or third party fundraising on FR. Occasionally people do it anyway. And sometimes good Samaritans get burned. People are not always who they seem to be. Beware of who you send money or personal information to (real names, phone numbers, address, email address, checking account numbers, etc).</p>
