  • WHY LIBERALS HAVE JOINED DISCUSSIONS ON FREE REPUBLIC : THE BEAUTY OF A TRUMP VETO.

    A Trump veto cannot be overridden and the Lib-Demo- Rhinos know it. No mistake, this terrifies them, and no amount of involuntary elitist chastening can change this. Yes, we are on to you, and it just doesn't matter anymore. A Trump veto takes away the pressure that has intimidated the Republicans for decades. Now, the question may be asked, " Has Republican intimidation been sincere, or simply an excuse to go along with the same interests that move the Democrats? ". We will see. If they are not sincere, they must be replaced. What is absolutely required, is to kill...

    O.K. The Dems. have roared, "No wall", the Repubs. have predictably rolled over on their backs and begged for a tummy rub, and the government will run dry on Friday. Sound familiar? Anyone for a good Hurl? But hold your fire, I believe, and greatly hope the difference will be Trump, as follows; The GOP, of course, by nature or design will cave and vote a bill without a wall. If Senate concurs Trump will veto. It cannot be overridden. The Dems. scream and blame Trump. He doesn't give a lusty one, and the Repubs. are safe because they voted...

    French voters will finally be able to vote for a new president today. They've suffered for years under the less than inspiring leadership of socialist Francois Hollande, but today they take the first step to replacing him with someone else -- someone better. Or not, of course. After all, although two candidates -- Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen -- are considered to be "conservative," they are not exactly the favorites to win the election. In Fillon's case, even proceeding to the second round may prove impossible. The first round of France's presidential election only serves to separate the top...
  • Should Fox Fire Shepard Smith?

    Poletical ^ | April 1st, 2017 | T. Carter
    Fox News has been known to separate its programming into “opinion” and “news”, but some parts of its news wing have fallen prey to the beasts of fake news. One in particular is Fox News' Shepard Smith Reporting, which has been dominated by the unsubstantiated claims surrounding Russia's meddling in the US election and the non-existent Trump-Russia connections. Almost daily, Shepard Smith wades into rants and allegations about Trump's connections to Russia while ignoring the larger, real and substantiated connections between Russia and the Clintons. For this, petitions and calls to have Smith fired have been growing. Shepard Smith is...

    The new National Security Advisor – Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster – and the Counter-Terrorism advisor to the President of the United States – Sebastian Gorka – both unequivocally state the “terrorist” threat America faces has nothing to do with “true” Islam. Both men are catastrophically wrong and, therefore, are leading America down a disastrous road towards defeat. The New York Times, Guardian, and CNN all report Lt General McMaster told members of the National Security Council Thursday he felt “radical Islamic terrorism” was an unhelpful way to describe terrorism because becoming a terrorist is actually “un-Islamic” in the first...

    Meia Bias: President George W. Bush has issued a full-throated defense of the media's role in modern society. He's being way too generous. "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. … Power can be very addictive," Bush said in remarks on NBC's "Today." "We need an independent media to hold people like me to account," he said. Yes, we agree wholeheartedly. But he seemed to imply today's media were fulfilling that role. They aren't. And there's no better example than Bush's own two terms in office. While we deeply admire the former president for not holding a grudge,...

    1.Democrats are confused by the fact that they were bested by a political figure they see as an empty suit with a pedigree famous for little more than tweeting. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. It’s been hard to avoid the contrived, media-driven campaign to fabricate Chelsea Clinton into a figure of political and cultural relevance. Take for example the New York Times book review, which dug into Clinton’s literary preferences. Bet you didn’t know that the scion of the Clinton family first read Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 in the seventh grade and “it still makes me uncomfortable, even...

    George Lakoff vividly recalls where he was and what he was doing the night Donald Trump was elected president. “We were having some tacos,” said Lakoff, a professor of linguistics at UC Berkeley. “I felt pretty bad afterward. And it wasn’t just the tacos.” A lot of people had heartburn that night, unable to understand how such a uniquely unqualified candidate could be elected to the highest office in the free world. Lakoff understood exactly what had occurred. “Why was it that all the polls were wrong?” asked Lakoff, speaking to a packed auditorium Thursday night at San Francisco’s Commonwealth...

    Actor Bradley Whitford did not hold back in his response to Ivanka Trump's call for "religious tolerance." The actor, best known for his "West Wing" role, slammed President Donald Trump, calling him a "racist" while also tweeting that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner enable hatred. "Your father is a racist birther. Steve Bannon an anti-Semitic opportunist," Whitford tweeted. "You and your husband are enabling hatred." He also added, "F--k your shoes," referring to Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories lines.

    Whatever or whoever prompted Trump to authorize jettisoning Flynn was a HUGE mistake...now the leftists will use this situation to prove how Trump is not fit to be President. The decision was foolishly meant to curb criticism, but unfortunately the decision only gave the left more ammunition to prove that Trump is not a good leader, either he makes bad choices in hiring or weak in that he listened to bad advice. Either way, he has opened the floodgates of wrath. Bad advice to oust Flynn...he should have given all his critics the middle finger and told the press that...

The Left is furious that Trump is considering chiefly military men, slandering them as "cereal killers." Gen.

    Remember all the promises Obama made but never executed? We have a new President now, and he is ready to put his pen where his mouth is. Remember what President Trump ran on? Didn’t he say, “I will put AMERICA FIRST.” And that is exactly what he is doing. You can count on Trump to do what he says, even if it is unpopular with the citizens, he knows why his voters chose him. Obama spent 8 years commending terrorists by not acknowledging their works. He opened the United States up to those who wanted to destroy it, by not...
  • Science Experts Say Liberals, Not Conservatives, Are Psychotic

    The American Journal of Political Science published a correction several months back saying that it made a serious error in one of it’s published papers. The error? The paper originally said that conservative political beliefs are linked to “psychoticism,” but it turns out that liberal political beliefs are the ones that are linked to psychoticism.
