  • Pollster: GOP looking beyond Trump in early primary and caucus states

    Washinton Examiner ^ | July 13, 2022 | Paul Bedard
    Republican pollster Rick Shaftan is like a lot of political junkies: He looks to his mother for hints on what real America is thinking. Lately, their talks have been about former President Donald Trump and whether he should run again. SNIP Of course, Trump does make some news, but it's mostly complaining about the 2020 election results and cheering on some 140 GOP candidates he has endorsed for 2022 who have won so far. SNIP “It’s actually even worse than it appears for Trump,” said Shaftan, whose new poll shows a dramatic drop in support for Trump in Iowa and...
  • Barnette Fades as Erratic Record Comes Under Fire

    Newsmax ^ | May 13, 2022 | Newsmax staff
    Though she got high marks as a pro-life advocate, political newcomer Kathy Barnette has seen her support dwindle as conservatives scrutinize her record. Questions surrounding Barnette's credibility for Pennsylvania GOP Senate nomination, with the primary election set for next Tuesday, have risen sharply after she seemed to be leapfrogging in polls. Barnette's comments in recent years have included claiming unrest in the "Black community" was due to "white racism." (snip) Surprisingly, Barnette also has criticized the nation’s first president, saying she "heard white people talking about the high and mightiness of George Washington, a former slave owner." (snip) Barnette, who...
  • Knucklehead Of The Week: Fredo Achieves What We All Thought Was Impossible… A CNN Suspension

    The Blue State Conservative ^ | 12/04/2021 | PF Whalen
    The decision on who to honor as this week’s top knucklehead was a relatively easy one, for a change, with the only real competition being provided by our two honorable mentions. Fredo Cuomo’s suspension from CNN is so improbable, the choice was an easy one. But before we examine the justification for Fredo’s selection, let’s pause for a moment to consider how far the House of Cuomo has fallen in such a short period of time. A year ago today, now-disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Fredo’s brother, was still trying to figure out where to display the Emmy...
  • Late-Night TV is finally going after "Buffoon Biden" - This video is hilarious!

    Look, everyone in the country knows that Joe Biden has some form of “dementia.” They know, we know, and they know that we know, and we know that they know. Everyone knows. So, sitting around pretending like it’s not actually happening is pretty silly at this point. For heaven’s sake, other countries are calling it out, and they must think our media and celebrities are mindless zombies to just sit back and ignore it or call this madness a “childhood stutter.” Besides, Jimmy probably sees the comedy gold in covering Joe. However, the truth is, while some stuff is funny,...

    Please help me understand how trump WON in a landslide yet according to this CNN article DJT never polled over 50% (CNN)Donald Trump has always been fixated on writing his name into the history books, to ensure his four years as president aren't forgotten. Well, he's done it! Trump ends his term with the lowest average job approval rating -- 41% -- of any president in the last seven-plus decades, according to Gallup. That's four points worse than the next, uh, worst -- Harry Truman, who averaged a 45% job approval score throughout his time in office. Barack Obama averaged...

    19FortyFive ^ | 1/09/2020 | Peter Suicu
    The Lockheed SR-71 spy plane was – and still is – the fastest plane on the planet. The Goal Known unofficially as the “Blackbird” for its black paint job, which was developed to dissipate heat, the jet featured sleek lines that certainly were “futuristic” when it was flying top secret missions years before American astronauts headed to the moon. It was developed in secret in the late 1950s to cruise to 80,000 feet above the earth, near the edge of space, and out fly any missile that was launched at it.

    Four times I deployed into combat zones over my Army career. Twice more as a retired civilian have I ventured to Iraq and Afghanistan in an attempt to deepen my understanding of the sources of violence that undergirded those wars. Never in my wildest imagination did I believe I would live to see the day when the United States Capitol would be stormed by a wild mob, overpowering the police, disrupting both the House and Senate from performing a critical Constitutional duty. This assault lays bare that it is time for some hard-core soul searching for both our political leaders...
  • White House reportedly spending $44K on carpet cleaning ahead of inauguration

    NYPost ^ | 12/29/2020 | Yaron Steinbuch
    The White House will spend a little over $44,000 to deep clean its carpets before President-elect Joe Biden moves in amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report. According to federal financial documents cited by TMZ, the amount will be spent on “Inauguration Carpet Cleaning” inside the 55,000-square-foot mansion, which has 132 rooms. It is unclear how many rooms will have fresh carpeting, according to the outlet. While a major scrubbing of the presidential home occurs regularly when a new commander-in-chief moves in, a more thorough cleaning is expected this time around due to the virus.

    Archaeologists in Florida recently confirmed that they discovered the bones of many young children buried under the last place that one might have thought to look: a wine store. However, there will be no police investigation. The Florida wine shop is in St. Augustine, the oldest city in America. And those bones? And those bones? They’re just about as old as the city is.

    At Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a remote desert area in southwestern Arizona bordered by Mexico to the south and a Native American reservation to the east, red-lettered signs warning of’ BLASTING’ began appearing over the past week. Crews have been blasting the hillside while excavators and backhoes are clearing a path for the Trump administration’s towering border wall sections, a pace that environmental groups are concerned that sacred burial sites and ancestral lands are at risk of being irreversibly damaged.
  • Help Request - Fact Checking Liberal Talking Points

    06/06/2020 5:21:11 PM PDT · by GraceMitchell · 53 replies
    My daughter used to be a conservative until she went to college. It has been less than a year, and she's now using liberal talking points in all her political debates with me. Yesterday she sent me an article titled "The Treason of the Ruling Class" by Chris Hedges (I can't link it here due to a FreeRepublic's restriction). I have made it my mission now to try to research and provide my daughter with facts because she doesn't get them from the websites that she's visiting. I have been reading FreeRepublic for years, but this is my first time...

    TheAmericanDossier.com ^ | Stephani Scruggs, Contributor, The American Dossier
    The Leftist propaganda machine is running circles around itself trying to prove that Bevin’s Kentucky loss is the first sign of a Trump Train derailment. As usual, the machine could not be more wrong. First of all, it is important to understand that the movement behind Trump is not actually about Trump and never was. Rather, Trump is a figure and person to whom this ragtag band of Americans known alternatively as the grassroots or Tea Party movement has chosen to support because he represents our frustrations and ideals with the very clearly broken American Republic and way of life;...

    Yesterday, Dahoser helpfully posted this outrageously deceptive article from The Hill. Thank you, Dahoser. The post received much attention from Freepers, who made many good comments. Since most people likely don't have the time to wade through all 131 comments, I will summarize here some particularly astute observations as well as add my own. I hope that it will be a helpful exercise in highlighting many of the ways the media attempts to deceive us, particularly with statistics. We should be concerned not just to avoid being deceived ourselves but also to recognize the powerful influence articles like this have...

  • Trump voters open to bump stock ban after Las Vegas shooting

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/14/17 | Daniel Allott
    As night follows day, mass shootings in America are followed by a succession of Democratic politicians and liberal activists pushing for tighter gun restrictions. Almost as reliably, those efforts fail. But in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas, in which Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at an outdoor concert, there is reason to believe this time might be different. Paddock used “bump stock” devices that effectively turn semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic weapons, causing a higher death toll. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have shown some support for a ban of bump stocks. House...
