    President Trump on Friday announced that he has approved military strikes in Syria against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The decision follows a suspected chemical gas attack from the Assad regime on a rebel-held town near the Syrian capital last weekend. The United States launched the response, along with assurance from France and the United Kingdom, Trump stated. French President Emmanuel Macron said the operation is currently targeting the "clandestine chemical arsenal" in Syria. "This evening I have authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter...

    Let's see how long this thread lasts, the mods pull everything I post that offends or upset the delicate little flat earth and science hating snowflakes that have taken over FreeRepublic these days. Here's a simple method anyone can use to measure the altitude, size, and velocity of the International Space Station by capitalizing on a lunar transit (where ISS is silhouetted against the moon within a narrow corridor - you can find opportunities on transit-finder.com). Anyone can do this with a friend using a good high magnification camera like a P900 or other long focal length telephoto lens on...
  • Netanyahu makes late night u-turn on deal for African asylum seekers in Israel

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, announced yesterday he had reached a deal with the UN to resettle thousands of African asylum seekers only to u-turn within hours after a rebellion by his own ministers. The Israeli leader said on Monday afternoon that he had struck an international agreement under which around half of the 40,000 asylum seekers in Israel would be sent to Western countries like Canada, Germany and Italy. Under the terms of the deal, the Israeli government agreed to let the other half stay in the country and to scrap controversial plans to deport them to other...

    My journey with Free Republic began in late 1998. It was near the end of the Clinton Presidency, and there seemed to be a new wave of hope and a sense of renewed patriotism as we gathered to defeat Al Gore and elect George W. Bush. But, on the whole, we lacked a platform, a vehicle, whereby we could gather together and speak with a common voice. Jim Robinson provided that platform, utterly unique at the time, a place for conservative voices to sing out, to proclaim their views, to unite, and to encourage one another that we were not...

  • Trump: Border wall construction will start on Monday

    03/24/2018 5:00:01 PM PDT · by MNDude · 550 replies
    President Trump said Friday that construction of his promised border wall would start "immediately" after signing the omnibus spending bill, which included $1.6 billion in funding for the wall. "We're going to be starting work literally on Monday," Trump said during an event Friday at the White House. "We have a lot of money coming to the border." Trump had threatened earlier Friday to veto the spending bill Congress passed on Thursday because it did not include sufficient funding for the wall and because it omitted expiring protections for young, undocumented immigrants.

I have a suggestion for changing the Tea party name to..... "The Trump NEW Beer Party"..the working mans party.

    NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY could ever call me a Never Trumper. In fact, I was perhaps one of the very first Trump supporters on this forum. However, by using his Executive Order to ban bump-stocks as machine guns -- despite the fact that they STILL PULL ONE TRIGGER FOR ONE ROUND BEING FIRED -- he has just done something in an extra-judicial manner. Despite the clear language of the law that defines automatic weapons -- that one trigger pull discharges multiple rounds continuously -- his EO causes the language to be ignored. Now, I get that Trump bashed the...

    Whether you're a conservative in Hollywood or in state, local, or federal government or somewhere in the academic world, you know full well what can happen to your career if you carelessly let slip your political preference. It can, and often does, result in significant, negative ramifications to your career. Any American who's spent any time residing in the State of California knows illegal aliens disregard our laws, have no problem tapping into our social services with fraudulent documents, have little desire to assimilate, and in a lot of cases, insist we embrace them and the system they decided to...
  • Amazon Inc. Paid Zero in Federal Taxes in 2017, Gets $789 Million Windfall from New Tax Law

    ITEP ^ | 02/13/18
    In 2017, Amazon reported $5.6 billion of U.S. profits and didn’t pay a dime of federal income taxes on it. The company’s financial statement suggests that various tax credits and tax breaks for executive stock options are responsible for zeroing out the company’s tax this year. The company’s zero percent rate in 2017 reflects a longer term trend. During the previous five years, Amazon reported U.S. profits of $8.2 billion and paid an effective federal income tax rate of just 11.4 percent. This means the company was able to shelter more than two-thirds of its profits from tax during that...

    An aide to a Republican Florida politician was fired after suggesting two Parkland school shooting survivors who are the subject of conspiracy theories are "crisis actors." In an email, Benjamin A. Kelly, district secretary for Florida State Rep. Shawn Harrison who represents Hillsborough County, said that two students – David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez "are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen."

    Back in the day, there was no school shootings. We were warned back in 2000 by Dr. Peter Breggin, M.D. when he testified in front of the House Education and the Workforce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Not only about the damage that prescribed narcotics can cause in children that really don't need them but also the nefarious politics pushed by the pharmaceutical industry in concert with lazy parents and educators that would much rather drug kids as to avoid any kind of education reforms that would require accountability.

    For more than a decade, YouTube has been one of the most popular social networks. However, besides being used for entertainment, there are people who create YouTube videos to make a living. Many Youtubers now call YouTube their main career and can make money off of it, just as one would at a regular job. Dr. Dustyn Williams of OnlineMedED is an example of someone who now makes millions off of making YouTube videos, and has an inspiring story to go along with it. Dr. Williams received his undergraduate degree at Yale University and then went to medical school at...

    After every mass shooting, Democrats and their allies in the media tell Americans to “do something.” The response to Wednesday’s horrific shooting in Florida was no different. ... Across the country, Rep. Joe Kennedy III, part-time comedian Jimmy Kimmel and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome all called on elected officials to “do something.” But what is “something”? Without details, it’s like a group of lost hikers declaring they need to “find their way home.” Yes, everyone can agree with that, but which way do you go?

    The reactions from Left and Right are all too predictable in the wake of the Parkland shootings. My social media feeds are overflowing with self serving proclamations, dubious statistics, hateful name calling, and all around foolishness. As usual, both sides are screaming at each other and no one is really listening. I get the Left’s position on gun control. If we want to prevent these national tragedies, we should make it as difficult as possible for people to get their hands on assault rifles. Even if these guns can be obtained via illegal channels, why make it easy for a...

    Weather prediction for President Trump — “Stormy” weather ahead. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who allegedly had an affair with Donald Trump, now says she’s ready to tell all about their tryst after Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen admitted he paid her $130,000 out of his own pocket a week before the 2016 presidential election, website The Blast reported on Wednesday, citing sources. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen told the New York Times.
