  • All This 'True Conservative' Talk About 'Principles' Is Just Another Lie

    09/04/2017 5:42:34 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 52 replies ^ | September 4, 2017 | Kurt Schlichter
    After two years of lectures about “principles” and “the Rule of law” by the establishment-loving hacks furious that normal Americans rejected them and elected Donald Trump, their performance last week demonstrated that their high-minded dedication to conservatism is all a fraud. It’s not about “principles” or “the Rule of Law.” It’s only about holding on to power – theirs.            Let’s take the latest in a seemingly endless series of #fails from that smarmy dope Paul Ryan, King of the Fredocons. First, he rushed to help out the liberals with their ridiculous narrative about how Donald...
  • Mark Levin to Fox's Kelly: 'Don't Pretend You're a Journalist'

    His takedown Wednesday began with criticism of media mogul Rupert Murdoch's two sons, James and Lachlan Murdoch, as "liberals" who are "ruining that network," and then called out Kelly for being "out of control." "Megyn Kelly pretends to represent women," he fumed, referring to a sexually explicit 2010 interview with Howard Stern. "She’s not some leader of some feminist movement. She's hardly in a position to be representing anybody." He also charged Kelly "set a fuse" when she confronted Trump at the first GOP primary debate Aug. 6, 2015, quoting Trump's previous attacks on women. "She was so obsessed with...

    It's very sad to see Ben Shapiro, once a hero to many on this forum, grovel for recognition at MSNBC in order to bad-mouth Trump and Bannon. I guess now he can make common cause with the other recalcitrant there, Bill Kristol.

    Conservative Review ^ | 03/17/2016 | Mark Levin
    On Thursday night, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin took on the rising tide of "populist nationalism" with a history lesson. Populism, Levin explained, is really just progressivism. The populist movement in America was the forerunner of the progressive movement, and both populism and progressivism share the same disdain for constitutionalism that conservatives reject.
  • What has happened to Free Republic? [What difference at this point can it possibly make?]

    Since Obuma was elected to POTUS, I have been coming to Free Republic to get news, opinions and a few laughs. Most of the serious posts were bemoaning the out of control government and what could be done about it. "Oh Whoa is Me!". Then along comes a constitutional conservative. For the first time since Ronald Reagan, we have a constitutional candidate running for the GOP nomination. This man was elected by conservatives to go to Washington and stand up to the elites that no longer listen to the American people. He didn't go to Washington and "fall in" with...
  • Insider leaks real reason for GOP kingpins' anti-Cruz venom

    It's well known that many Republicans in Washington do not like Sen. Ted Cruz, but the full extent of that antipathy is coming to light this week as several current and former lawmakers say they prefer Donald Trump as the GOP nominee, although they have little regard for either man. Some GOP consultants and strategists started the rumblings in recent days. Then Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad told Republicans in his state to oppose Cruz because of the senator's opposition to ethanol subsidies. But the story broke wide open on Wednesday when former Senate Majority Leader and 1996 Republican presidential nominee...

    Donald Trump has said just recently that he’s bigger than Ronald Reagan. Talk about audacity. Well Ted Cruz was asked about it this morning and here is fantastic video of him pointing out that Ronald Reagan actually spent decades espousing conservative principles and didn’t just adopt conservative language on the campaign trail. Couldn’t have said it better myself. No matter how big Trump’s ego is, there is no comparison between Trump and Reagan. Just not even close.

    FORT MILL, S.C. — Ted Cruz, long reluctant to directly criticize Donald Trump, threw caution to the wind Saturday as he ripped his Republican presidential opponent as a fake conservative. "Donald’s record does not match what he says as a candidate," told reporters before a national security forum here at a church, delivering an assessment of the onetime ally in the race that would have been unthinkable as recently as last week. "I recognize what Donald says on the campaign trail today is fairly conservative, but voters are discerning." Cruz went on to respond to a serious of critical tweets...

    I live here in Central Michigan. Dave Camp MI-R, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee is retiring. We have a primary race between Paul Mitchell, John Molenaar and Pete Konechty.Konechty filed to run against Camp before he dropped out, seems to be the true Tea Party candidate. Molenaar is a State Senator and Paul Mitchell, businessman/GOP finance chair, both filed after Camp dropped out. I'm going by memory on this.Paul Mitchell has swamped the district with tv, radio, internet, mail and robocalls. Molenaar has followed with radio ads and mailers. I haven't heard from Konechty, who I believe has...

    had read headlines about this speech by Ted Cruz, but watching it finally was even better. As background, Sean Sullivan at WaPo’s The Fix points out our house is divided, Ted Cruz vs. John McCain: Welcome to the new normal in the Senate:Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) feuded this week. Then they feuded some more. It wasn’t the first time tensions between the longtime senator and the freshman tea party favorite flared up. And it’s a pretty safe bet that it won’t be the last. The dispute between McCain and his allies and Cruz and his...

    I wonder if three features of the race as it stands today aren't being a bit neglected: 1. Turnout: The Romney-Gingrich slugfest in Florida appears to have produced slightly fewer than 1.7 million voters in this year's primary. That's down by about 12 percent from the 1.94 million who voted in 2008. Not a good sign for the GOP in this key swing state, especially following a flat GOP turnout in Iowa and only a slight uptick in New Hampshire (also swing states). Both of those states have open primaries, so with no Democratic contest this year, in contrast to...

    By now you probably already know that Michele Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chair, Kent Sorenson, suddenly turned round and endorsed Ron Paul last night. And I have to tell you, I’m disgusted. I know Kent Sorenson. We have each other’s private phone numbers and I also have to tell you that I texted him last night and for the first time ever, he has not returned my text. I have left him voicemail — no return call. ... Did he originally back Bachmann because he thought she could win? What does this say about him? ... The campaigns in question don’t...

    The Hill ^ | 111711 | Daniel Strauss
    Herman Cain leads the Republican presidential field in Iowa, according to a new poll released Thursday. The Iowa State University/Gazette/KCRG poll found that the former Godfather's Pizza CEO leads the GOP field in Iowa with the support of 24.5 percent of Republican voters. Cain is followed by Ron Paul with 20.4 percent of the vote, then Mitt Romney with 16.3 percent. The poll's findings are somewhat in contrast with a number of recent national polls that found Cain's recent front-runner or near-front-runner status disappearing in light of allegations that he sexually harassed a number of women while he was president...

    You won’t believe me until you click play but this is much worse than Perry’s brain lock at the debate last week. Perry lost his train of thought; Cain doesn’t have a train at all here, to the point where he needs confirmation from the interviewer of what Obama’s position on Libya actually was. Eventually he produces some boilerplate about not supporting the opposition until you’re sure who’s in it and of course not making a decision as president until he has all the information, which is a standard Cain fallback talking point whenever he gets in trouble on a...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry ridiculed Washington leadership Thursday on a whirlwind trip through California, positioning himself as a champion of limited government, states' rights and low taxes as he edges toward a decision on whether to enter the 2012 presidential campaign. The Republican governor held a string of private meetings and events with members of Congress, conservative activists, CEOs and potential fundraisers who could become part of a national campaign. Perry, a former Air Force pilot, is the longest-serving governor in Texas history. He opposes abortion rights and is a favorite among social conservatives. He has been touting his record...
