  • Pushing Back the Indoctrination

    10/06/2020 7:57:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | October 6, 2020 | Robert Knight
    From the president on down, we’re seeing a welcome pushback against Marxist indoctrination in our colleges, government agencies, and even the military. It had better happen soon, too, because in K-12 schools, hapless children are being subjected to the awful, anti-American 1619 Project and Black Lives Matter curricula. But at least there is movement at the top of the academic and government food chains.In Maine, Republican state Sen. Lisa Keim has written a forceful letter to the University of Maine System board, objecting to University of Southern Maine President Glenn Cummings’ order for everyone on campus to “align” with Black...

    I guess I'm here... I came to understand why and how you guys think the way you do. I'm extremely liberal and have a burning hatred for a good amount of the right, however I still want to contribute. I dislike being divided, I dislike any phobias that I know many of you have, and after reading some of the opinions on here I can honestly say that I see no good that can come from this website. The garbage spewed on here makes me want to puke. The clear disregard for political correctness and the way others may feel...

    An Introduction to Free Republic First, Free Republic’s Web site is located here Free Republic. Free Republic presents itself as the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism. Let’s look around. I see some areas in the left and right borders. On the left are : Alliances Resource Links Media Links Legal Groups Political Links Government Links Military Links Now that’s impressive. Easy access to informative Web sites on a wide scale. Except for Alliances the groups are self-explanatory. I have been to and found an outstanding resource on an amazing array of topics. On the right are...

    Heresy: An Introduction to Combat Riflecraft (The following article is the first in a series that will discuss the Combat Rifle POI as I teach it.) –J.M.) “Shattering illusions, and crushing misconceptions…It’s just what I do.” –Me, to my mother-in-law recently. The purpose of the combat rifle is to allow the combat rifleman to engage and kill, directly or indirectly, armed enemy combatants with precision aimed rifle fire. The rifleman’s ability with his weapon is one of the most fundamental measures of his effectiveness and survivability in combat. If the expects to function effectively in combat, he must be both willing to, and...

    Fundamentals of Catholicism by Father Robert Altier Lesson 15: An Introduction to the Sacraments [Class begins with a greeting by Father and the recitation of the Hail Mary.] We are going to begin our coverage of the sacraments, which will take us through the next several lessons. This is critically important because the whole life of the Church takes place in and through the sacraments. So we have to ask, first of all, what is a sacrament? Anyone raised Catholic will remember that a sacrament is an outward sign of an interior reality instituted by Christ in order to give...

    Hi, I'm new to Free Republic and my Son, LeapFrog, was teasing me about my hobbies, which are scrapbooking and quilting. I told him I'd get on Free Republic and find some like minded friends, and he laughed. What he didn't know is that my other hobby is match making. My Son is 36 years old, single and very good looking! Anybody interested?

    The New Zealand Herald ^ | 13/02/05 | Brian Fallow
    From the NZ Herald : 12.02.05 by Brian Fallow   In the strongest job market for a generation, the unemployment rate has fallen to 3.6 per cent, the lowest among developed countries and the lowest since comparable records began 19 years ago. In the last three months of 2004 the economy created 33,000 new jobs. Over the year, 87,000 jobs were created, Statistics New Zealand reported yesterday. The number of people in work increased 4.4 per cent last year, at the same time as the net inflow of migrants dwindled and growth in the population slowed accordingly. That is the...

    Hello all - I must confess that I have been diligently reading the homepage and a number of posts over the last weeks. But I still do not know whether I did anything wrong now. If anyone wants to point out what I should change in the future, than I will be most grateful for that. But it sure looks good. Thanks in advance, MartialArtsUSA (forgive me if this name sounds silly. I had but little time to think about it).

    Catholic PRWire ^ | 11-03-2004 | Catholic PR Wire
    New Book Makes Canon Law Accessible to Laity FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Catholic PRWire From time to time, all Catholics have them: nagging questions about church life, often prompted by some personal encounter or challenging situation: Is a layperson allowed to preach a homily? Is a pastor required to report to someone regarding parish finances, or is he on his own? It seems like the parish council is running your parish. Does it have the authority to do so? Must a child be baptized in a church, or may the baptism take place at home? If I obtain an annulment, does...
  • Dem Pittsburg MC to Ms Heinz: stay in Philadelphia next time

    "STAY IN PITTSBURGH" Teresa Heinz Kerry, Sen. John Kerry's vivacious wife, was a major asset on the campaign trail during the primary elections but has run into backstage criticism since then -- particularly in Philadelphia last week. Mrs. Kerry asked Rep. Bob Brady, master of ceremonies at the event, whether she could introduce Gov. Edward Rendell (who in turn would introduce the prospective Democratic presidential nominee). The candidate's wife then launched into a 10-minute speech about her early life in Mozambique and on the iniquities of George W. Bush, but forgot to introduce Rendell. After the event concluded, Brady told...
