    Dinesh D'Souza is an American patriot whose prosecution was politically motivated, targeted under the Obama admin for "exceeding campaign contributions". Tried & convicted under the campaign finance law by the sum of $20K, in a case involving no corruption, he was sentenced to 8 months’ overnight confinement, a substantial fine, mandatory psychological counseling and 5 years of probation and community service. No American has ever been prosecuted, let alone sentenced, for a crime of this nature involving no quid pro quo. Without a pardon, Dinesh is unable to exercise his right to vote or to legally purchase a firearm. Dinesh's...
  • Trump Is Right About Amazon

    04/12/2018 9:02:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | April 12, 2018 | Brian McNicoll
    Critics might be right that President Trump is more interested in attacking the Washington Post than the Amazon/U.S. Postal Service shipping deal. But Trump is right that the deal is a bad one for the Postal Service and for U.S. taxpayers.As I wrote last September, Amazon has a deal with the Postal Service to handle the last mile of delivery for its packages. Even though Amazon presorts most of the packages and prepares them for delivery at its depots, the Postal Service has continued to improperly allocate its costs, which has resulted in undercharging Amazon for delivery of those packages by...

    Just my personal request to the FReeper community that we stop posting You Tube videos on here if we can at all avoid it. You Tube hates us and is one of several leftist media outlets that's currently engaged in trying to silence us and deny us a means to organize. We should not be helping them add to their advertising revenue if we can at all avoid it. Thanks for reading. - Megan
  • Did A Texas Republican Weaponize Social Services To Go After Primary Opponent?

    Tomorrow is Election Day in Texas. Voters will flock to vote in their respective primaries and for one race, it’s become deeply personal. In Texas’ 99 House District race, Bo French is running against incumbent Republican Charlie Geren R-Fort Worth. It’s a rematch from the pair’s 2016 bout; French is considered someone who could knock off Geren in a primary. Geren prevailed but by less than 4,000 votes. According to reports, the two men were friends until French was accused on what appears to be bogus child abuse allegations. The couple recently filed a lawsuit against the political operative for...
  • Did Billy Graham's Best Friend Meet Him In Heaven

    02/27/2018 7:22:39 AM PST · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | February 27, 2018 | Larry Provost
    In 1946, Billy Graham had a friendly rival for the title of the most up and coming evangelist in the world. The friendly rival was, in fact, Billy Graham’s best friend Charles Templeton.Charles Templeton was from Canada and was co-founder of the organization Youth for Christ, which hired Billy Graham as its first full time evangelist.  Templeton and Graham led rallies together in America and in Europe.  Many thought that Templeton was the more talented preacher of the two.  However, what followed was a truly sad story.By the late 1940’s Templeton began to doubt the Genesis account of creation.  Further,...

    I love Rush Limbaugh. He's smart, articulate and wealthy, but that last part was not always so for Rush. He grew up in a family of ambitious lawyers and storied judges. The pressure from his family was really on for Rush to hit the books, stay in college, become a Man of Letters. They wanted him to rake it in somehow, preferably in law but if not, to earn a living in some capacity that involved stable income, a necktie and not moving around the country like an overfed vagabond. But Rush knew what he wanted to be in radio...
  • Parkland students show why 16-year-olds should be able to vote

    The real adults in the room are the youth from Parkland, Florida, who are speaking out about the need for meaningful gun control laws. They are proving that civic engagement among young people can make a difference. The ironic part? They can't even vote yet. Several municipalities in the United States allow 16- and 17-year-olds to vote in local elections. Takoma Park, Maryland, was the first city to lower the voting age, thanks mostly to the advocacy efforts of youth themselves who convinced the city council that they should have a voice in local governance. Other cities in Maryland, like...

    Have you seen this video of a guy skating on Fountain Lake in Byrd Park? Megan Wise and I decided to check for ourselves if it was safe to walk on the ice in Central Virginia. I emailed Jeremy Hoffman at the Science Museum to pick his brain: This is a picture of Dr. Hoffman doing something very important. He pointed us to Minnesota - they know their ice there! While ice is never 100 percent safe, we now had a goal - to see if we could find ice 4-5 inches thick on Fountain Lake in Byrd Park. Although...
  • Is Demon Possession Real?

    11/10/2017 7:35:18 AM PST · by pinochet · 146 replies
    Many people have tried to explain away the mass shootings in Texas and Las Vegas as mental illness. I can assure you that 99.9 percent of mentally ill people could never kill anyone. People are ruling out a spiritual component to these shootings. The mass shooters reflect the classic behavior one should expect of armed people who are demon-possessed. I invite Freepers who are mature Christians, and who have developed the ability to do spiritual discernment, to comment on this issue. Then there is the issue of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, the most committed Christian to be a Senate...

    Trump is having a FABULOUSLY successful trip overseas, and the media is LOATHE to report it...these UNPROVEN and, ultimately, UNPROVABLE allegations against Roy Moore are a great distraction from covering PROVABLE successes in the realm of foreign policy. Just a question, but it sure seems to me the media latched on to the shooting in Texas, but that story fizzled when it was revealed Obama's Air Force failed to report the guy. What do you all think?

  • 64 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, 51 percent of Republicans

    A new Gallup poll shows growing support for marijuana legalization, with 64 percent of Americans now in favor of the measure. The number is the highest level of support in nearly half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup. Support has steadily increased in recent years, with the latest figure up 4 percentage points over last year and up 14 points from 2011. The poll also showed a majority of Republicans favoring legalization for the first time, with 51 percent expressing support. That number is up 9 percentage points from last year, according to Gallup.

    Dear President Trump, Once again it is apparent that the establishment elites have no intention to pass any part of your agenda. Why should they wish to? They are living quite well in DC on their lobbyist moola and government perks. It is time sir you use your bully pulpit to call them out but not in a way that is insulting, rather, in a way that simply exposes them. I propose that you in the most vigorous way possible challenge, no demand, that Mr. McConnell bring a bill to the floor of the Senate and have it voted on,...

    CNN dropped a bombshell on Monday night that “US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election...The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.” This means there are some major-media reporters who should apologize to conservatives who asked questions about Trump-team surveillance. In March, ABC’s Brian Ross repeatedly denounced Mark Levin as a “conspiracy-loving talk show host” (a la Alex Jones) over three days of newscasts.

    Leftist slant but informative. We had our opportunities with Ho Chi Min but it would have meant quitting on the French. Russian/Chinese expansion as well as the development of nuclear weapons may have handcuffed us. Dividing the country was was made to look like Korea redux-probably true. A complete misunderstanding of what's going on in other cultures. 57k lost lives later we haven't learned our lesson in the mid-east. Ken Burns gave us the 'well intended' bone.

  • Biblical prophecy claims the world will end on Sept. 23, Christian numerologists claim

    A Christian numerologist claims that the world will end next Saturday when a planet will, supposedly, collide with Earth. According to Christian numerologist David Meade, verses in Luke 21:25 to 26 are the sign that recent events, such as the recent solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey, are signs of the apocalypse. The verses read: “25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies...

    Dear John: When will the US understand that the universal sport of soccer cannot exist in our country? It is a poor man’s sport where no equipment is needed, only a ball and a field in which to kick it. It cannot survive in the US for three reasons: Boring, boring, boring. The most excitement is among the spectators who burn or stampede the stadiums or kill the goalie or referee — which is where the term “fan” was derived: “Fanatic.”
