    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — He may have been expelled Thursday evening, but Justin Jones is back in the Tennessee House of Representatives. The ousted legislator was reappointed to his former seat in the 52nd District in Nashville by the Metro Council Monday afternoon, two business days after he was officially expelled from the House for breaking decorum rules on the House floor March 30. Jones faced expulsion along with fellow Democrats Gloria Johnson of Knoxville and Justin Pearson of Memphis. Johnson survived the expulsion vote by one, but Pearson was ousted as well Thursday. The move was met with national...

  • How Should We Vote? One Christian's Guide to Approaching the Voting Booth (FREEP is Anti Conservative Youtube video)

    This is a short little video that will NOT tell you WHO to vote for. If that’s what you’re looking for, wrong video. Instead, I will walk you through how I think about voting first and foremost as a Christian rather than as a member of one or another political tribe. I also want to talk about the idea of “ideological constraint,” which can warp our thought processes as we engage with politics. It’s important. So… again… not going to tell you who to vote for. Or even who NOT to vote for. That’s up to you. This is just...
  • The hit comedy movie 'Airplane!' is 40 years old. It shows its age, but it's still relevant (back in theaters Aug 30)

    It would be easy to put “Airplane!” on a no-fly list of offensive films. That would be a mistake because it demonstrates how to push boundaries in the right way.When it first crash-landed in cinemas 40 years ago, the irreverent “Airplane!” wowed critics and audiences with its fast-and-loose brand of humor. It remains one of the most consistently uproarious laughfests ever filmed, and became an instant comedy classic when it hit screens in 1980. The 40th anniversary Blu-ray reissue arrives Tuesday. In writing and directing “Airplane!,” the creative triumvirate of Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams and David Zucker (later known as...

    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....

    In Amazon’s remarkable second headquarters competition, talent is the name of the game. That’s why we want to find out which city in the running for Amazon HQ2 has the best chances of attracting people like our talented GeekWire readers. One of Amazon’s chief considerations in picking a location for its second headquarters is the ability to attract and retain the valuable tech workers who power the e-commerce giant’s business. Tech companies compete fiercely for a relatively small pool of skilled talent and Amazon wants to place HQ2 in a city that will help it gain a recruiting edge. Last...

    Dinesh D'Souza is an American patriot whose prosecution was politically motivated, targeted under the Obama admin for "exceeding campaign contributions". Tried & convicted under the campaign finance law by the sum of $20K, in a case involving no corruption, he was sentenced to 8 months’ overnight confinement, a substantial fine, mandatory psychological counseling and 5 years of probation and community service. No American has ever been prosecuted, let alone sentenced, for a crime of this nature involving no quid pro quo. Without a pardon, Dinesh is unable to exercise his right to vote or to legally purchase a firearm. Dinesh's...

    A Freep needed – I have the D.C. Switchboard on my phone. For YEARS I have called and a volunteer will answer and ask me who I want to be connected to. I do not only call my U.S. Representative or Senator, I call them all. I just called to speak to Nancy Pelosi who came to Texas and called us cowards for obeying the rule of law (on illegals and Sanctuary cities). Well, now the switchboard automated asks press 1 for Senator and 2 for Representative. If you press 2 for Representative then you must enter your zip code...

    FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai went on with Neil Cavuto on Thursday to discuss Stephen Colbert’s nasty, vulgar attacks on President Trump earlier this week. Ajit Pai told Neil the FCC will investigate Colbert’s comments if they receive complaints. He admitted that he had not yet seen the vulgar comments. On Monday, Colbert, host of CBS’ “The Late Show,” used his opening monologue to take aim at Trump, implying the commander in chief had engaged in fellatio with Putin.
