  • Meghan Markle's Mother 'Will Open up about the Racist Abuse her Daughter has Suffered since [Trunc]

    Markle's mother is ready to open up about the racist abuse her daughter has suffered as a result of her royal relationship, it has been reported. Doria Ragland, 61, is said to be ready to share details of Ms Markle's struggle in a 'groundbreaking' interview with Oprah Winfrey. Ms Ragland, who will play a key role in her daughter's wedding, was seen leaving the TV mogul's $88million (£70million) California home last week. While the reason for the six-hour visit has not been confirmed, a US TV source has told the Mirror Online that the pair were discussing ideas for a...

    A high school student's prom pictures have generated a furious debate online after some social media users accused the 18-year-old of "cultural appropriation". Twitter user Keziah, who is not Chinese, posted pictures of herself wearing a cheongsam, or qipao - a traditional Chinese dress - for her prom in Utah, USA, last week. In a widely-shared response to the pictures, one Twitter user, Jeremy Lam, tweeted: "My culture is not your... prom dress". The original tweet, and Lam's criticism on Friday night, have attracted hundreds of thousands of likes, tens of thousands of retweets, and thousands more comments as...

    Ted Cruz came in second in the recent Louisiana Republican primary behind Donald Trump but could win more delegates -- and the the real estate mogul is crying foul. Trump beat the Texas senator in the March 5 contest by 3.6%. Under party rules the pair each won 18 delegates. But Cruz's campaign is using its organization muscle to sway ten more delegates toward his camp, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday -- a situation that seems to have caught Trump's ire.

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/12/12 | Tzvi ben Gedalyahu
    The intellectually bankrupt center-left finally has owned up to its disintegration six weeks before the election. Even the ultra left-wing Haaretz lamented Monday, “Game Over. The center-left bloc is a fragmented mess, while the right-wing bloc has never looked so hale and hearty.” It published a Dialog poll that apparently was a knock-out punch for the left but revealed no surprises for readers of Arutz Sheva, which has reported ever since the demise of the Olmert government that the Israeli public is moving away from the “center left” and towards the nationalist and religious camps. If elections were held today,...
  • In National Polling, It’s Gallup vs. the Rest (Nate Silver in full liberal melt-down mode)

    New York Times ^ | 10/19/2012 | Nate Silver
    The Gallup national tracking poll now shows a very strong lead for Mitt Romney. As of Friday, he was ahead by six points among likely voters, having led by seven points on Thursday. However, the poll’s results are deeply inconsistent with the results that other polling firms are showing in the presidential race, and the Gallup poll has a history of performing very poorly when that is the case. Other national polls now show a very slight lead for President Obama on average, while state polls continue to indicate a narrow advantage for the president in tipping-point states like Ohio....

    The millennials' reaction to Osama bin Laden's death is characterized by a generational narcissism and a generational need to be part of history, especially when it's easy... students at Yale University... headed to the quad to celebrate. They chanted "U-S-A!" and "Yes we did!"; they waved American flags, blasted vuvuzelas, took pictures with their arms raised or wrapped around one another. They bellowed "The Star-Spangled Banner," along with stadium standbys like "We Are the Champions" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye." A couple of students circled the crowd on a moped. If you hadn't known better, you would...

    If you believe the Democratic ideologues, their policies are perfect and so is their President. There is no way that Americans could turn against either. That is, unless you believe Rasmussen. Judged by Rasmussen America has issues with both the POTUS and his party's policies. Democrats believe that Rasmussen, who is acknowledged as one of the more accurate political pollsters, is either inaccurate or the purposely biased. They whine that Rasmussen's polls constantly report numbers that are about 5% lower than other polls,which is generally true because Rasmussen measures likely voters, other pollsters measure all adults.

    I have been a minor participant at Free Republic, the Internet’s leading conservative forum, since September 2004. An online friend referred me to a discussion where members of Free Republic were talking about the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections, and using my maps from this page to make a point. I had to join FR to introduce myself to that group, and thank them for visiting. Because that was right after the “Rathergate” scandal, I thus became one of the “Pajamahadeen” that had just brought down the Sauronic eye of CBS. Being a “Freeper” has been an interesting and fun...
  • So Freepers don't like RINOs. I get it. But who's NOT a RINO? [vanity]

    I lurk this forum way too much. But it does give me my news fix and some interesting tidbits as well. I am in here enough to get a good gauge of the political celebs Freepers don't like. That would be pretty much everybody. I'm kinda sure nobody likes Mitt Romney. And as of 11/6/08, John McCain is a favorite whipping boy. Overall, the bulk of characters who stood on stage in the early GOP debates last year is tainted in some way. Giuliani, the cross-dressing gun-hater. Ron Paul, the anti-war drug-legalizer. Huckabee, the soft-on-crime wingnut. Yada yada... I'm aligned...

    This morning I posted a thread titled " Obama Orders 1 Million US Troops To Prepare For Civil War". My comment, " Fact or speculation? You decide", in the thread I posted clearly indicated no particular position for or against and with the assumption Freepers could openly debate the merits, or lack thereof, and provide input concerning the article located at another website as has occurred with many other dubious articles posted at FreeRepublic in the past. The thread was pulled with the premise the article was based on the "trutherism" subjectively defined as a conspiracy. I then posted a...

    We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this. 1. It's impossible for us to enforce.2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.4. Thick skin helps.5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply. Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps. Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would...

    Ever since my son was a tot, I have squirreled away as much as I could muster for his college education. Education is a priority in our family, but every year that goes by, it becomes clearer that nothing I could ever amass will dent what it will cost to send him to college. Despite his desire, college may be out of the question for him — and for anybody else earning less than an auto executive's salary. The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education reported recently that the rising cost of education has put it virtually out-of-reach...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Why doesn't the Democratic Party hold a primary among its superdelegates to reach a quick decision between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton? That idea was proposed publicly Wednesday by Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, because he believes Democratic chances in November will be hurt if the nominee isn't decided until the party's August convention. Bredesen himself is a superdelegate and undecided in the presidential race. The national convention will have almost 800 superdelegates — elected and party officials — whose votes for a presidential nominee are not bound by the results of any primary or caucus.

    Discrimination isn't always intentionally hateful or even blatant. Staring too long at an obese person or assuming that someone doesn't belong in a certain place because they might look different is also prejudicial. To help promote acceptance and understanding, a group of people will share personal encounters with discrimination this October. In conjunction with Diversity Awareness Month in October, the York County Diversity Coalition will host a series of first-time programs for the public and held in the evenings at high schools across the county. The discussion topics include obesity, racism, judgement based on sexual orientation and disability. Each session...

    PENN YAN NY- A routine traffic stop last December changed the lives of Sadie and Fernando Garcia forever. Fernando is a Mexican national who has lived in the U.S. for about 15 years, and he was on his way to Christmas shop at Eastview Mall in Victor when a trooper pulled him over for a burned-out taillight. Fernando wound up sitting in a Batavia holding cell because his immigration papers weren't in order. Bail was set at $10,000. Now, he's looking at possible deportation - and leaving American-born Sadie alone to raise four young children. “It's just ridiculous. It seems...

Royal Navy Able Seaman Arthur Batchelor, 20, said the suits they were given were "tacky," the CDs and DVDs do not work and there was no sign of his iPod portable media player, worth 160 pounds. The 15 sailors and marines, seized in the northern Gulf on March 23, were...
