    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...

    By Joel Leyden United States News AgencyNew York --- August 23, 2015 ... Social media is no longer the bastard son of the media. It is the media. There was a time when newspapers (print), billboards, lawn signs, buttons, radio and TV ruled in winning a political campaign. Those days are history. Classic media is still relevant, but no longer primary. It is no longer the question "should we add social media to our campaign budget?" But - "should we add newspaper, TV and radio to our campaign budget". The reason is called "instant", "feature" and "cost effective". One need...

    Israel: Trump Is A Global Security ThreatBy Herb Brandon Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — April 29, 2016 … Security analysts in Israel have long believed that Donald Trump’s candidacy was not real. It was started and restarted in recent years. Perhaps an excellent marketing campaign to brand his real estate properties. But as Trump now allocates more of his own money (actually not his, but being loaned to Trump with online donations) his demeanor as an aggressive, serious candidate is now transparent. His lack of seriousness in addressing both domestic and foreign issues is anything but serious. “Most alarming is...

    Donald Trump might have rolled to 60 percent of the Republican vote in New York Tuesday night, but he came in a distant third in the big scheme of things nonetheless. Keep in mind, this is the candidate and the campaign that constantly pout about one-man one-vote and popular vote totals. They threaten to both call the lawyers about this concept and to riot in Cleveland over this. Thus, by Trump's own standards, Trump got thrashed in New York. Both Hillary and Bernie Sanders destroyed Trump in raw vote totals. I'm not saying Trump didn't win the N.Y. Republican primary...

    Prevalence of homosexuality in men is stable throughout time since many carry the genes Around half of all heterosexual men and women potentially carry so-called homosexuality genes that are passed on from one generation to the next. This has helped homosexuality to be present among humans throughout history and in all cultures, even though homosexual men normally do not have many descendants who can directly inherit their genes. According to previous research, sexual orientation is influenced to a degree by genetic factors and is therefore heritable. Chaladze says this poses a problem from an evolutionary perspective, because homosexual men tend...

    With his decisive victory in Wisconsin, Sen. Ted Cruz has not only shaken up the Republican presidential race, but heading into the homestretch, he has suddenly become the odds-on favorite to win the nomination in Ohio. With 16 primaries and caucuses remaining, Donald Trump has to win 70% of the delegates to secure the 1,237 needed to win a first ballot at the Republican convention. Several states are coming up that are more favorable territory for Trump than Cruz, especially New York and Pennsylvania where Trump still has significant leads.

Now Sibley claims that some never-before-aired information found in the records of said madam “could be relevant” to the upcoming presidential election. How so? Well, he can’t say. Sibley is bound by restraining orders imposed by the court in the case of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who committed suicide in 2008 soon after she was found guilty of racketeering and money laundering. But her colorful former attorney is now seeking permission to release 815 names of Palfrey’s clients and the records of 40 other escort...

In January, the Sunday Times of London cited former Judge Andrew Napolitano, a conservative libertarian and frequent Fox News guest, as saying that the FBI was taking evidence “seriously” and that Hillary “could hear about that soon from the Department of Justice.” It’s hard to believe that the Obama administration and its hideously politicized Justice Department would ever indict Ms. Clinton, given that President Barack Obama picked her for secretary of...

Cruz accused Trump of being a coward who has problems with "strong women." Cruz was in Oshkosh Friday morning at Lakeside Plastics for a campaign stop.

The man who always claimed to be the “godfather” of the movement is Irving Kristol.

Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, edged the national GOP front-runner in Alaska for his third win of Super Tuesday. Trump was still the night’s big Republican winner with victories in seven states. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who finished third in Alaska, won one state.

    ... How should Cruz and Rubio go after Trump? They must depict Trump as a game-show host out of his depth. They must laugh at his kindergarten-level grasp of national-security policy. They should bait him into putting forth an opinion on Obamacare and then mock him for having held the opposite view that morning on Morning Joe. They should pound him on his four bankruptcies, ridicule his failed Trump University scam that stole tens of thousands of dollars from average Americans, call him on his support for Planned Parenthood, knock him for his bullying, vulgar self-righteousness, laugh at him for...

    I've been reading FR for years now but haven't ever commented. I genuinely enjoy the commentary. Sometimes it's intelligent. Sometimes it's terrible. But it's always entertaining. But I have a few questions: Why does it take so much money to keep FR going? I have numerous sites that cost a couple hundred dollars a year to keep going. Why is there censorship? Posts and comments at deleted. If they are bad or objectionable, why delete them? Why can't you self police this?

    MSNBC "Morning Joe" host and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough says Ted Cruz's bid for the GOP presidential nomination is over. Scarborough said Tuesday that the Texas senator's "outsider" campaign has all but come to a complete halt after the South Carolina primary last Saturday. "Let's be honest and blunt this morning, okay, because that's why people tune in to our show," Scarborough said. "Ted Cruz's campaign is over. I'll tell you when it ended ... It ended in South Carolina when Donald Trump beat Ted Cruz among evangelicals after coming out in support of Planned Parenthood." "Ted Cruz's campaign...

    How long before I get pulled? I've seen an uptick in pulled threads lately, some from long time freepers. I'm a monthly donor and I'd like to see a sidebar of pulled threads.

    Recently, Tom Scholl, who identified himself as a pastor of churches in Ohio and New York, as well as holding positions in several ecumenical organizations, wrote a 3-part article for my local newspaper, The Macon Telegraph, entitled -What the Koran says about Christianity.- I thought it would be an interesting series to read, but I was greatly disappointed and not a little irked. It could have been an apologia about the goodness of Islam, using selective passages from The Koran and being charitable to some elements of Christianity. But his apologia went further than the usual arguments and Koranic exhortations...

    I did not see the most recent debates, and my in laws swear up and down that Trump SPECIFICALLY said that he supports a "woman's right to do what she wants with her own body," i.e. abortion, thus meaning he's not pro-life any any sense of the term. Is this true?

    I had a Trump bumper sticker on my car which I took off last night. After watching last night debate I came to a conclusion that he is an absolute idiot.
