    Former Vice President Joe Biden has taken to describing his supposed arrest in South Africa at least three times in the past two weeks as he speaks to voters and seeks the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden has been claiming that he was arrested in the 1970s by South African authorities while he sought to visit Nelson Mandela in prison, The New York Times reported Friday. “This day, 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid,” Biden told supporters in South Carolina last week, according to the Times. “I had the great honor of...

    Conservative TV host Bill O’Reilly said Thursday he has no problem with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s recent comments that illegal immigrants commit an “act of love.” In fact, O’Reilly said Bush stole it from his playbook. “He took it from me. I’ve been saying that for years,” O’Reilly said on NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday.
  • Citizen's Voice: Time to repeal 2nd Amendment

    The recent Arizona tragedy has, of course, brought the entire issue of firearms control to the front of our national consciousness, along with the usual assortment of bloviators, pundits and podium thumpers. At the risk of being considered one of them, I would like to offer several alternatives to address the problem. n Repeal the Second Amendment. At the time of its writing and through the early 1900s, The United States was a nation of largely isolated communities that depended on their own initiative for mutual security. That time is clearly passed...

    Alec Baldwin, the US actor, has said he has lost interest in acting and considers his film career a failure. "I consider my entire movie career a complete failure," he told the magazine. "The goal of moviemaking is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that." Baldwin has expressed interest in politics in the past but did not say in the interview what he intended to do if he quit acting.

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. actor Alec Baldwin says he has lost interest in acting and considers his film career a failure. "I don't have any interest in acting anymore," Baldwin, 51, told "Men's Journal" in an interview for its December issue. Baldwin, best-known for his Emmy-award winning role in the NBC comedy "30 Rock" and the man chosen to co-host the 2010 Oscar ceremony, added: "Movies are a part of my past. It's been 30 years. I'm not young, but I have time to do something else".

    On the day that Barack Obama was inaugurated in January I urged people to remain calm and sober. I brought up topics like drug addiction (including prescription drugs), alcohol addiction, addiction to pornography etc. My message was simple. Clean up your act and be sober in dealing with the Obama regieme. Now the murder of abortion butcher George Tiller stares us in the face. Killer Tiller dehumanized unborn infants through his wanton destruction of thousands. But there are other ways to "dehumanize" people and make them objects. I really want to know more about the man who thought Tiller's evil...

Got news for you pal. The owner of Free Republic (namely me) is diabetic and I've already lost one leg due to this despicable disease and the other leg looks like it's ready to fall off any day now.

    I haven't even attended my local TP yet, but Obama has already pre-empted them with a speech that effectively moves the discussion away from the TP issues to his own, tax breaks (some) to the majority of taxpayers (50% don't pay any taxes at all), taking away tax breaks for the rich (resonates with most voters) and streamlining the tax code (won't happen but sounds good). Sorry TP organizers, but you only have yourself to blame for framing these rallies based on taxes in general instead of focusing them on 1. the criminal activity that spawned the economic crisis, 2....

    Here’s the no-spin truth: Bill O’Reilly offers a fairer, more balanced version of the latest political headlines than MSNBC’s nighttime ideologues. Don’t get me wrong. The Fox News commentator remains the most combustible on-air personality since Morton Downey Jr. and his ideological tilt on some topics, like limited government and coerced interrogation, would still raise eyebrows from an in-his-prime Walter Cronkite. But quietly, and with little fanfare, O’Reilly has been doing his best to not only offer both sides of key partisan debates, but also treat President Barack Obama with respect. He recently told a reporter that second-guessing the new...

    If Barack Obama is looking for an elder statesman with national security credentials as his running mate, my two cents say he should pick Sam Nunn. The conventional wisdom, though, has Obama leaning toward Joe Biden. If the senior senator from Delaware is indeed tapped, we can expect that mere milliseconds will elapse before some MSM outlet labels Biden a "moderate" or a "centrist." We thought it might be useful to do a little prophylactic exploration of the Biden record. Given his long tenure in the senate, he's earned literally hundreds of interest group ratings over the years. But here...

    'Bitter' and 'nasty' tone may hurt party's chances to win presidential election laterHartford - Sen. Chris Dodd warned Friday that the Democratic primary contest is growing“bitter and nasty,” and said the party's presidential hopes are at risk if it lasts through the convention. ”The good news is we're increasing the ranks and rolls of Democrats in states as a result of these contests going on,” Dodd said of the primary battle between Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, who he has endorsed, and Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.“But I'm worried if this thing goes on into the summer or, Lord...

    Take a look at the cover of The New York Daily News today, huge publicity. Ann Coulter's publisher is dancing down the street. The controversy is all about Ann writing that four 9/11 widows are liberal pawns and are craven. Says Coulter, "these broads are millionaires lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities... I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much." Now many conservatives have joined liberals in condemning Coulter's words, but not all. On "The Radio Factor," some callers supported Ann. Talking Points believes most Americans reject that kind of...
