  • too many ghost posters on FR

    Im not enjoying the free republic lime I used to. Too many newbies that are trolls, looking for someone to drag into their abyss of self hatred. Theres been a lot of posts linked to posters with no bios, I think admin needs to limit the number of posts or remove those without any bio info.

    @RepThomasMassie Approximately 1% of Gaza’s CIVILIAN population has been wiped out by Israel in 7 months. We should not fund this war. [1% is between Israel’s 0.7% and Gaza’s 1.5% official claims in this article]
  • US Navy too slow, too outdated to match China’s surging fleet

    Asia Times ^ | 5/9/24 | Gabriel
    Plagued by delays in ship repairs and outdated design practices, the US Navy faces mounting challenges in maintaining readiness and keeping pace with China’s rapid shipbuilding advancements. This month, USNI News reported that the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) revealed that fewer than 40% of US Navy ships had completed repairs on time, despite the availability of shipyard space. The GAO ranked shipyard conditions second only to F-35 Lightning II air fighter sustainment costs as the most problematic readiness issue facing the US armed services.

  • Wave of Legislation Seeks to Penalize Criticism of Israel as Antisemitism

    The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly to advance a bill that would empower the federal government to crack down on student protests by defining antisemitism in a way that includes certain criticism of Israel. Sponsored by Rep. Mike Lawler, a Republican from New York, the bill's passage reflects a broader national trend. Earlier this year, Gov. Brian Kemp signed H.B. 30, which revised Georgia’s hate crime statute to include certain forms of speech critical of Israel. In March, Gov. Kristi Noem signed legislation into the South Dakota civil rights statute that codified some forms of speech critical of...

    Rudy Giuliani has been making unauthorized payments on his credit card, a committee of his bankruptcy creditors have claimed. They told a bankruptcy judge—who controls the former New York City mayor's spending—that they will not allow Giuliani to drive his creditors "off a cliff," and said they are making a last attempt to get him to comply with his obligations to the bankruptcy court before they start using tougher legal methods.

    A North Korean delegation led by the cabinet minister for international trade is visiting Iran, the North’s official media says in a rare public report of an exchange between the two countries believed to have secret military ties. The minister for external economic relations, Yun Jong Ho, left Pyongyang on Tuesday by air leading a ministry delegation to visit Iran, the North’s KCNA news agency says. It gives no other detail. North Korea and Iran have long been suspected of cooperating on ballistic missile programs, possibly exchanging technical expertise and components that went into their manufacture.

The attack against U.S. forces is the first since early February when Iranian-backed groups in Iraq stopped their attacks against U.S. troops.

    WASHINGTON – Few people are entirely neutral in their assessment of the work and influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Whether revered, feared or reviled, AIPAC is seen by some as an icon of pro-Israel advocacy – or the bogeyman symbolizing everything that's wrong with America's political lobbying and fundraising scene. But no matter how it's characterized, AIPAC's political evolution over the past three years has been one of the defining stories of U.S. politics.

    Israel has a national debt of $310 Billion owed by its 9.6 million citizens. Individually, each Israeli citizen’s share is $32,291. The U.S. has a national debt of $34 Trillion owed by 334 million citizens. Individually, each U.S. citizen’s share is $101,796. All politics aside, why am I, you, each of our children and grandchildren borrowing money to give to Israel when each of us already carries a debt burden three times that of each Israeli citizen?

    Sorry for another post but I'm praying that Tehran has made its point and that is it for now. They have bombarded Israel but have failed to really hurt or harm them. The BBC even show bars are open in Jerusalem. Do not be alarmed. Do not panic on here. I'm hoping that this does not escalate despite the unprecedented nature of the attack. How do Freepers see this playing out?

    Border Hawk Blog ^ | April 6th, 2024 | Allan Wall
    The VDARE.com website, founded by Peter Brimelow, has been on the internet since 1999. VDARE deals with immigration (legal and illegal), national identity, ethnic identity politics, race and crime, and related topics; especially aspects of these matters that are excluded by the Mainstream Media. That’s why VDARE is under attack and is currently in imminent danger of being abolished. Its payment processing has been shut down repeatedly. It’s been banned from YouTube and Facebook. Sadly, VDARE has been very shabbily treated by the conservative movement itself. VDARE is currently being destroyed by Leticia James, the attorney general of New York....

    The popular opinion among many on both sides of the aisle about why the 2022 red wave turned into a red trickle is that the overturning of Roe vs. Wade ruined it for the Republicans. To the surprise of no one who's been reading me for a while, I don't agree with the popular opinion. It was 40 years ago this spring that I first volunteered on a Republican campaign. I've seen a few elections. I cannot stress enough how one should never underestimate the ability of the GOP to blow an election simply because the party doesn't execute the...

Israel said they were killed by an "unintended strike". Australian national Lalzawmi Frankcom, Polish national Damian Sobol, Palestinian Saif Abu Taha and US-Canadian citizen Jacob Flickinger were among the others killed in the strike. The team...
