  • FReeper Dale Reed has passed away

    09/29/2016 2:45:27 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 193 replies
    September 29, 2016
    Received a message from his wife that Dale Reed has passed away. Dale was a long-term conservative activist and a FReeper since nearly the beginning of Free Republic. He was one of the founding members of our Southern California Chapter. Dale and his wife and several members from Southern California were present at the 1998 picnic and meeting in Fresno where our activism efforts through chapters were basically born. Dale was a good man, a patriot and great supporter of FR and our conservative activism efforts and will be greatly missed. Prayers for his wife and family. May his soul...
  • FEC Dems lay groundwork to ban Fox, WSJ political coverage

    www.washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 9/29/16 8:07 AM | By Paul Bedard (@SecretsBedard)
    In their biggest threat yet to conservative media, Democrats on the Federal Election Commission are laying the groundwork to bar companies with even the tiniest foreign ownership from American politics, a move that could ban Fox, the Wall Street Journal and even the New York Times from covering political races or giving endorsements. In a last-minute submission Wednesday, a top Democrat on the evenly split FEC proposed that the Thursday meeting of the commission begin the process to prohibit companies with foreign ownership as small as 5 percent "from funding expenditures, independent expenditures, or electioneering communications." Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub...

    I have been extremely busy with a bunch of personal stuff and haven't had time to write. I was actually taking a break with a pal last night and missed an interesting - and oh! so sweet! - bit of news which I would normally have seen at the Jawa Report, but I got on email from a friend late last night. It seems that RevolutionMuslim's South Park threatener Zachie-boy Chesser, using his infant son as camouflage (what a typical terrorist thing to do huh?) tried to board a flight to Uganda with an ultimate goal of reaching Somalia to...
  • Feds to make a ruling over politicking on the Web

    09/14/2016 5:56:05 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 15 replies
    A political action committee is looking to figure out whether it can safely use the Internet to support national political candidates, or whether the Federal Election Commission might seize the opportunity to impose the kind of regulations Democrats have been striving to attain. The request for an advisory opinion, filed on behalf of Citizen Super PAC, asks the FEC whether it would be permissible to email supporters of a candidate's campaign, or whether that would cross a line prohibiting coordination with candidates.

  • Mark Levin - NON STOP NEVER TRUMP (Vanitiy)

    Okay, I hadn't listened to Levin in weeks, can't stand him now, but had to run some errands and took my sons car as I have the top and doors off my Jeep and it was raining. He doesn't have my stations tuned in. So I hit the AM station and Levin was on, here's my synopsis. He first gave the "insurmountable" path Trump has to the white house and that he almost assuredly, barring a miracle, cannot win the White House. After the long diatribe just before the break he says "We nominated the wrong candidate". Back from break...

As we’ve seen throughout Rio Olympics, like I’ve always said: sports are an analogy of life, thus analogous to the Presidential election. Like this McGregor vs Diaz fight tonight, it always comes down to "who wants it more?" So, supporters of America-First Nationalism (represented by the Trump movement) must understand the UniParty’s Globalism (that’d be Hillary), and how the Left fights to win. They fight dirty, but they...

    Okay, I propose that the Trump-Pence logo below be designated the unofficial logo of the campaign. It was originally designed by Freeper HotHunt and tweaked by Freeper Malsua into the final design you see. The original 16 was ditched since we already know what year it is. Also the letters T & P were enlarged and since P belongs to both Trump and Pence, it is divided diagonally by color. Also the "Make America Great Again" was tweaked so it matches in width the names above. I like this logo because of its simplicity and the fact it could also...

Classic media is still relevant, but no longer primary. It is no longer the question "should we add social media to our campaign budget?"

The 2008 vice presidential nominee told The Associated Press that GOP voters have the right to decide the party's nominee and will rebel if House Speaker Paul Ryan or some other "white knight" is chosen at a contested convention. Ryan said this week he will not seek or accept the nomination. Palin said voters know better than to be fooled by party leaders....
