    Many FReepers attended the Capitol March – PLEASE CHIME IN. Here’s what I saw: I was not in the Capitol building, but just outside near the stairs. The media reports are misleading and nothing like what happened on the ground. It seems very few of the talking-head story tellers were actually there. As far as “violence” - I’ve seen some videos of mashing around with fencing and some pushing and shoving, but still haven’t seen any real “violence” on video or first-hand. There were broken windows, property damage and vandalism – for which people should be charged. If someone hurt...

    Linked is my video of a portion of the hundreds of thousands of America-loving Patriots moving from the Whitehouse to the Capitol on 1/6/2021. They are not a violent mob! I recorded for about an hour from this one location on Constitution Ave near 15th NW. This is shown at double speed. As you can see from the video, my shirt caught some attention. It said: "God is on His throne. Jesus is Lord!"

    I want to get this down while it is still fresh in my mind so no responses tonight. I'll answer any questions, as I can, tomorrow. People need to hear what happened to keep abreast of the media narrative that is being formulated. Drove into D. C. and got into town around 4:30 PM. Since I have never been to DC I did the usual tourist thing of walking around and taking pictures of various historical monuments. I even scouted out the are around the National Christmas Tree where the main event was supposed to take place. I waved at...

    Special Edition04-15-19 ***After Action Report*** I just got back from the demonstration in Fresno, California. It wasn't a Free Republic event, but was sponsored by the local Tea Party and Free Republic was notified at the last minute, so Freeper attendence was small. I counted about 5-6 Freepers. I'd say the total attendance was 50-60 people total, maybe a bit more. There was a Tea Party board member with a sound system and microphone, a guy and his buddy from some web site that I forgot the name of and he was live-streaming the event somewhere on the internet....

    Finally, here are my more extended observations and comments from my family's attendance at the Trump rally in Southern Illinois, on 10/27/2018. I'll hit a few high points, but not spend a lot of time on what the President said -- here is a link where you can watch, yourself: My intent is more to let people who've not been to one of these rallys "see" what they are like, or for those who've attended in the past, maybe see how they have evolved or in what ways this rally may have been a bit unique. I also take...

Court documents released as a result of a lawsuit filed by NIAC against Hassan Dai paint a very disturbing picture of Trita Parsi and the NIAC. They range from defrauding the federal government, lying to members of Congress, arranging secret meetings between the US and the criminal regime,...

    I checked out the Lamestream Media coverage this morning . As you already know , it was, as they might have phrased it in their PC speech, “Reality Challenged”. Might start calling them 'Unhinged Media' now. The latest smearstorm is that Trump is crazy and must go. Perhaps some of the media are so divorced from reality they've actually gone off the deep end. My take is they are just following orders handed down to them from the “Ministry of Truth”. ( A little ”Orwellian” speak there, our modern Ministry of Truth is probably more like a mental orgy where...

    The Drive ^ | AUGUST 14, 2017 | TYLER ROGOWAY
    Nearly three years ago to the day I wrote about the Royal Air Force's retired fleet of Lockheed L1011 derived Tristar tankers being put up for sale. With nine aircraft available, some of them already outfitted for the tanker role, and for a very attractive price, the Tristars seemed like a perfect opportunity for a new private aerial refueling contractor to emerge. Now, this is exactly what has happened, with Tempus Applied Solutions of Texas buying six of the Tristars with the intention of entering the contracted aerial refueling market. Tempus Applied Solutions provides a wide range of aerospace products,...

  • Another Boeing Tanker Delay; How Long, Oh Lord?

    WASHINGTON: When Boeing really, truly and finally won the airborne tanker competition by underbidding what was then EADS North America (now Airbus) by at least 10 percent, the chairman of the losing company, Ralph Crosby, said he believed it important that Boeing be watched closely to make sure they delivered at that price and on schedule. “If they aren’t, then they should be held accountable,” he said at the press conference announcing EADS would not protest the win. Well, Boeing’s KC-46 is quite late and very over-budget. It was supposed to be ready for a spring 2017 arrival at Altus...

    This Saturday was the district conventions for many of the NC districts. The keynote speaker was Dr. Ada Fisher, a very impressive speaker and I recommend her short book “I am a Republican” which gives the history of NC African American Republicans. She also said it was her opinion that candidates for President should be born in America. I wasn’t sure how the process worked, but submitted myself as a delegate candidate. I wasn’t sure if anyone would second my nomination. All the GOP delegates in my county were Cruz supporters. Someone outside my district seconded me. Each of us...

    I know this is a vanity post but as I was at the Trump rally Saturday in Tucson I felt as if I had to write something. When I am angered I like to write out my thoughts and share them. And this time I felt like I HAD to do it, just like Trump said that he didn't want to run for president, he felt like he HAD to. And I thought you all deserved to know the truth, because all the news stations definitely are keeping it far from you. So this is my personal experience as a...
  • What really happened at the Chicago rally - My Firsthand Account

    At 2:30 p.m., I arrived at the Donald Trump rally located at the UIC pavilion in Chicago, IL. There was light police presence at the Blue Line station, and the pavilion was short walk away. There I waited in line for about an hour until making it to the front doors, going through a security scanner, and finding a seat in the main hall. For nearly two hours the pavilion filled until it neared capacity. It was clear that protesters were seated around the room, given easily away by their manner of dress. Most of the Trump supporters, being suburbanite...
