    PHOENIX – Sen. Rand Paul will join Dr. Kelli Ward and her supporters in a joint rally in Scottsdale later this month, according to a release. The event is being held to support Ward’s candidacy to replace Sen. Jeff Flake in Senate, who announced in October that he would retire and not seek re-election in the upcoming Republican primary. Paul’s involvement in the rally will be his latest show of support for Ward, who has also been recognized by President Donald Trump on Twitter.

    I have an important announcement of interest to long-time FReepers: FReeper GladesGuru, ecologist, and private property advocate, has died from complications due to prostate cancer. He was 75. Jan (pronounced “Yan”) Jacobson was a man of acerbic wit who could cut to the bottom line with a merciless precision. Pity the bureaucrat or academic peddling questionable “facts” under his scrutiny. His passion was wildlife biology and its relation to habitat. For over thirty years, he was Director of the Everglades Institute, a private parcel within the Big Cypress National Preserve, immediately adjacent to Everglades National Park. The parcel is unusual...

    Washington, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) today led a group of 65 lawmakers in a letter to Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence urging the immediate release of the four-page FISA Memo document to the public, as well as any relevant ancillary information. In the letter, Rep. Gaetz states, “the audience of this document should not be limited to Members of Congress — the American people deserve to know the information it contains.” Cosigners of the letter include: Congressmen Brian Babin (TX-36), Don Bacon (NE-02), Jim Banks (IN-03), Jack Bergman (MI-01), Andy Biggs...

    It has been one hell of a year for us Freepers, for those who go way back it has been 2 decades of political drama, both horrifying and amazingly good.

So this black Friday make a donation to Freerepublic, for Christmas let's get this over with, so Jim can worry about fighting the hackers, keeping the code cool and enjoying the holidays. If we make it big we could even take care of next...

    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...

    On Monday, August 21, I attended a volunteer orientation in response to a call for help for the Trump rally the following day. It was not clear that this was from the Trump campaign or the Arizona GOP, but at any rate I and dozens and dozens of other people showed up at the Arizona Republican Party HQ. So many showed up, in fact, that they had to do orientations in shifts. Judging by the names on the rolls, they got about three times as many people as they needed. Instead of being ushers or working inside, however, we were...

    Rally attendees are already starting to line up, are camped out in chairs. No sign of Antifa or BLM scum yet, no surprise. When you're chronically unemployed, you usually don't get up before noon LOL. Doors open at 4, rally starts at 7. Even more streets are being closed, will give update later on this. City of Phoenix Police, County Sheriff's dept, State police and National Guard will be on hand. Am also told ICE will have a presence, spread the word, hope that will keep illegal troublemakers away. Local Rat leaders still whining that DJT should cancel the rally....

    No bats. No sticks. No backpacks. Those are on the list of “zero tolerance” rules that Commissioner William B. Evans and Mayor Martin J. Walsh told organizers of a controversial “free speech rally” scheduled to be held on Boston Common on Saturday. The Boston Free Speech Coalition, which also goes by the name New Free Speech Movement, will get a permit, but it will have major restrictions, the mayor said. Under the permit rules, the free speech rally will be limited to two hours, from noon to 2 p.m., and it must be peaceful, the mayor said. “No weapons, no...

The website called “Did You Know” says the news has not been keeping Americans informed on all the legislation GOP lawmakers have passed in the House.
