    Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told “Just the News” on Friday that the Democratic-led Senate and House will vote in favor of statehood for the District of Columbia and send the bill to President Joe Biden’s desk, who has expressed support for D.C. statehood in the past. Bowser said, “The nation’s capital, the federal enclave, continues to exist as the nation’s capital and everything outside of those new boundaries becomes the 51st state. Our congresswoman – we had our first successful vote on statehood in the House of Representatives last year. She reintroduced the bill. She has a record number...

    Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Kamala Devi Harris were sworn in to office as US President and Vice President Wednesday morning, marking then end of now-former US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's tenure in office. While Biden's inauguration was broadcast across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN on Wednesday, the three networks and their talking heads took different approaches in their coverage and commentary. Fox News The Fox News Channel took a very comparative and more critical approach to Biden's inauguration than its competitors, highlighting the administration transition from Republican to Democrat control. The outlet also echoed right-wing...

I pray that you and your holy communities have celebrated joyous and grace-filled feasts of our Lord's Nativity in the flesh, Circumcision on the eighth day, and Baptism in the Jordan. In all of these holy feasts, we witness the love, humility, and obedience of our Lord. He was born to the humble Virgin and laid in a manger to unite His divinity to our humanity. He submitted to circumcision in the flesh in accordance...

    With the pendulum of Good and Evil swinging endlessly back and forth Men must struggle with those forces every day. That fight rages within our endless drive to be the best at any endeavor. There are those men who seek power to help their fellow men rise up and and to better their lives solely for the sake of helping. Too often though, men will seek out power solely for the personal enrichment. Such men care not for lives of other men. As good men are replaced with Evil men. So Good and Evil swing on the Pendulum. Our nation...

    The Burning Platform ^ | 01/18/21 | Bryce Buchanan
    The Democrat/media complex embarked on a complicated course of action when Donald Trump was elected President. There were many questions in their minds about possible strategies to regain power. Most of the strategies involved deception, or relied on the incompetence of their adversaries. There were risks of failure in these actions. In fact, as you look at the questions below, you may think that there was a very high risk of failure. Let’s consider some of the questions they would have faced based on the strategies they chose: Can we sell the “Trump is a traitor” lie, saying he collaborated...

    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Chris Plante from WMAL, 105.9 FM, in DC, is rated in America's Top 10 Talk Radio Show Hosts. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows. And, unlike the others, he pulls no punches, tells it like it is and doesn't take any BS from liberal, demonKKKrat, leftist, commie, socialist, fascist, marxist and anarchist callers. He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes.

    I am finding myself more disillusioned with politics than ever before. It's not just the stolen presidential election but the entire media is now anti-conservative and going for the jugular to smear and destroy. Every article I come across you can see it and it's pretty depressing! They have some how got this guy in office and have to rally round him and boost him. Opposition must be ridiculed/smeared and called extreme. They're even coming after services like Parler and shutting them down. I still logon to FR - perhaps the last free space on the internet - but generally...

    It can be pretty troubling to learn that your musical idol might harbour views that you consider problematic. Let our columnist guide you through the processWe’ve all seen the early signs, experienced the shock and sadness of watching a close friend or relative succumb to reactionary lies. The idea that it’s immigrants that have been underfunding the NHS since 2010, perhaps, or that it’s possible to get several hundred thousand identical fake ballots counted and verified just by lobbing them through the window of a voting station in a massive sack at 4am – all because of a grainy meme...

    “The madness of Trump, as bad as it was, it really needed to happen. We really needed a reflection of our world’s greatest problem, which is not climate change, but sociopathy and narcissism. Especially in America. It’s going to kill the world. It’s not capitalism, it’s narcissism.” So said songstress Lana Del Rey, reflecting on the Trump administration this week. She’s right to dig deeper than climate change and capitalism, but wrong to finger an incurable element of the human condition for America’s ills. The broader point, however, is important. Del Rey is arguing that Trump’s political ascent exposed or,...

    With everything that has happened over the last four years, and especially since the November election, I think most FReepers understand where our country is heading. For those who don’t yet fully understand, I believe they will be coming up the awareness curve pretty quickly as the Left continues to implement their plans to fundamentally transform America. I believe a key priority of the Left will be to fundamentally transform the focus of America’s “War on Terror.” America’s original "War on Terror" commencing in September 2001, focused the American people to rally to defend against and/or defeat "radical Islam." Of...

    Elaborate if you wish. Me personally, I will not. I am in Chabot’s district. And DeWine. They expect my vote, I expect their resignation or else. I will vote for their opponent and force their resignation. If the RNC believed we (collectively) would openly vote for the democrat if no alternative is offered........we might get back some of our power. The RNC decides if they are primaried or not.

    Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it's not that they will miss Trump's unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it's that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the margin, such a worry is justified. With 50 Democratic senators and control of both the House of Representatives and...

    Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz described YouTube and Facebook as “partisan political tools” which should not be viewed as platforms as defined by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. “YouTube is no longer a platform, and Twitter is no longer a platform,” said Dershowitz on his podcast the Dershow. “It’s a partisan political tool that can be used for purposes that were unintended by Section 230, and section 230 must be amended, or at least interpreted not to apply to platforms that censor.” Dershowitz highlighted YouTube’s and Twitter’s arbitrary and inconsistent applications of their own nebulous terms...

    In just a few short days, Joe Biden will address the nation at his inauguration, themed “America United.” This unity message, the Presidential Inaugural Committee declared, “reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future.”The announcement of this bipartisan theme seemed apropos following a week of turbulence and destruction perpetrated by Trump supporters at our nation’s Capitol, the seat of American self-government— upheaval that serious figures on both the left and the right have categorically and correctly condemned. After Biden’s speech on Jan....

    Big Tech’s moves to muscle President Donald Trump off social media have been heralded by some as victory. But a corporate-run state with politicians serving as mere figureheads amounts to the very fascism they claim to oppose. The smug, palpable air of "mission accomplished" emanating from Facebook, Twitter and Google in the weeks after the media called November’s election for Democrat Joe Biden has been hard to ignore. Thanks to an iron grip on the political narrative and the heavy-handed suppression of any influential dissenting voices, these insanely wealthy companies and their partners in the media establishment have managed to...

    The crisis that has unfolded since Wednesday's wholly illegitimate storming of the U.S. Capitol has taken a very dark turn, and I am genuinely worried about what will happen next. First, however, it is important to make it clear from the outset that I believe it was a huge mistake for the rally outside the White House to have taken place at all. Half a million people gathered in Washington. All of them were convinced that the election had been "stolen." So it was utterly irresponsible for people like Rudy Giuliani to urge on the crowd by talking about "trial...
