    "...true Zionism involved emigration to Palestine, working with out own hands to 'redeem' and build up the country, and create there a model society based on social, economic and political equality...." "David Ben-Gurion Looks Back"-In talks with Moshe Pearlman published 1965 "For united we stand, divided we fall" As sung by "The Brotherhood of Man" (1970) Jeremy Corbyn, the socialist style Labor Party leader in the UK reminds me of what "Labor" and "Socialist" parties used to stand for. The people who work for a living were deserving of protection from big business and more communal way of living was...
  • Vanity - US Senate, confirm Ms. Gina Haspel to head the CIA...period!!!

    05/10/2018 9:07:18 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 14 replies
    Simple no brainer here, any Senator that votes against the confirmation of Ms. Gina Haspel to head the CIA, belongs in GITMO for they are traitors and turncoats to the USA and the American people. I have notified both my Senators, Rubio & Nelson that they better vote for Haspel or I will do all I can to work to get them defeated. Rubio is no problem, he is a solid yes. Nelson is on the fence, but, he is frightened of losing his seat to Rick Scott (He will), so Nelson will indeed cast a yes vote to confirm...

    Any Christian with terminal illness who believes in the afterlife, would embrace a spirit of forgiveness towards others, in the hope of receiving forgiveness from God. Our ability to receive forgiveness from God depends on our ability to forgive our fellow human beings. There are many Bible verses dealing with unforgiveness: https://www.openbible.info/topics/unforgiveness
  • RUSSIA HAS WON IN SYRIA, WILL IT CHALLENGE U.S. IN LEBANON NEXT?

    Lebanon held on Sunday its first parliamentary elections in nine years, as citizens expressed cautious optimism that the country's rigid, oft-deadlocked sectarian political system could be swayed. Behind the scenes, however, one of the world's leading powers has quietly eyed the small state as a potential ground to project its power in the Middle East and into the Mediterranean. But it won't be easy. With Syrian rebels and jihadis at bay, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government set to further extend its comeback, Russia has pursued a cautious overture across the border into Lebanon—a $1 billion dollar arms deal, including...
  • Ex-CIA chief Michael Hayden says Netanyahu's Iran nukes announcement was 'old news'

    Former CIA Director Michael Hayden downplayed on Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic presentation in which he accused Iran of "brazenly lying" over its nuclear ambitions. "To the best of my knowledge -- out of government, not getting the briefings -- I think this is fundamentally old news," Hayden told CNN's "New Day." On Monday, Netanyahu gave a presentation in English in which he claimed Israel has evidence that Iranian officials were "brazenly lying" when they said Iran wasn't pursuing nuclear weapons and that the Islamic Republic is keeping an "atomic archive" at a secret compound. Hayden told "New...

    President Trump on Friday announced that he has approved military strikes in Syria against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The decision follows a suspected chemical gas attack from the Assad regime on a rebel-held town near the Syrian capital last weekend. The United States launched the response, along with assurance from France and the United Kingdom, Trump stated. French President Emmanuel Macron said the operation is currently targeting the "clandestine chemical arsenal" in Syria. "This evening I have authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter...

    Let's see how long this thread lasts, the mods pull everything I post that offends or upset the delicate little flat earth and science hating snowflakes that have taken over FreeRepublic these days. Here's a simple method anyone can use to measure the altitude, size, and velocity of the International Space Station by capitalizing on a lunar transit (where ISS is silhouetted against the moon within a narrow corridor - you can find opportunities on transit-finder.com). Anyone can do this with a friend using a good high magnification camera like a P900 or other long focal length telephoto lens on...

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, announced yesterday he had reached a deal with the UN to resettle thousands of African asylum seekers only to u-turn within hours after a rebellion by his own ministers. The Israeli leader said on Monday afternoon that he had struck an international agreement under which around half of the 40,000 asylum seekers in Israel would be sent to Western countries like Canada, Germany and Italy. Under the terms of the deal, the Israeli government agreed to let the other half stay in the country and to scrap controversial plans to deport them to other...

    My journey with Free Republic began in late 1998. It was near the end of the Clinton Presidency, and there seemed to be a new wave of hope and a sense of renewed patriotism as we gathered to defeat Al Gore and elect George W. Bush. But, on the whole, we lacked a platform, a vehicle, whereby we could gather together and speak with a common voice. Jim Robinson provided that platform, utterly unique at the time, a place for conservative voices to sing out, to proclaim their views, to unite, and to encourage one another that we were not...

  • Trump: Border wall construction will start on Monday

    03/24/2018 5:00:01 PM PDT · by MNDude · 550 replies
    President Trump said Friday that construction of his promised border wall would start "immediately" after signing the omnibus spending bill, which included $1.6 billion in funding for the wall. "We're going to be starting work literally on Monday," Trump said during an event Friday at the White House. "We have a lot of money coming to the border." Trump had threatened earlier Friday to veto the spending bill Congress passed on Thursday because it did not include sufficient funding for the wall and because it omitted expiring protections for young, undocumented immigrants.

    NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY could ever call me a Never Trumper. In fact, I was perhaps one of the very first Trump supporters on this forum. However, by using his Executive Order to ban bump-stocks as machine guns -- despite the fact that they STILL PULL ONE TRIGGER FOR ONE ROUND BEING FIRED -- he has just done something in an extra-judicial manner. Despite the clear language of the law that defines automatic weapons -- that one trigger pull discharges multiple rounds continuously -- his EO causes the language to be ignored. Now, I get that Trump bashed the...

    Whether you're a conservative in Hollywood or in state, local, or federal government or somewhere in the academic world, you know full well what can happen to your career if you carelessly let slip your political preference. It can, and often does, result in significant, negative ramifications to your career. Any American who's spent any time residing in the State of California knows illegal aliens disregard our laws, have no problem tapping into our social services with fraudulent documents, have little desire to assimilate, and in a lot of cases, insist we embrace them and the system they decided to...
  • Amazon Inc. Paid Zero in Federal Taxes in 2017, Gets $789 Million Windfall from New Tax Law

    ITEP ^ | 02/13/18
    In 2017, Amazon reported $5.6 billion of U.S. profits and didn’t pay a dime of federal income taxes on it. The company’s financial statement suggests that various tax credits and tax breaks for executive stock options are responsible for zeroing out the company’s tax this year. The company’s zero percent rate in 2017 reflects a longer term trend. During the previous five years, Amazon reported U.S. profits of $8.2 billion and paid an effective federal income tax rate of just 11.4 percent. This means the company was able to shelter more than two-thirds of its profits from tax during that...

    An aide to a Republican Florida politician was fired after suggesting two Parkland school shooting survivors who are the subject of conspiracy theories are "crisis actors." In an email, Benjamin A. Kelly, district secretary for Florida State Rep. Shawn Harrison who represents Hillsborough County, said that two students – David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez "are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen."
