Magical tax cuts

Some time ago, there was this Republican idea of 'starve the beast,' wherein tax cuts reduce the money for government spending. And in a way, it worked - the deficit raised so much that the idea of sequestration has been more or less publicly accepted.

But in the meantime, the starve the beast idea has been replaced by a simple conviction that tax cuts not only pay for themselves, but are the cure for all society's ills, just like mass deportations and ending welfare.

Thus, when Trumps supposedly revenue neutral tax plan is scored as raising the annual deficit to $12 trillion after 10 years, Freepers abandon any sense of concern about the deficit, and declare that because they get a tax cut, it must be awesome.

edpc has a rather one-sided understanding of things:
Taxes don’t raise deficits. Spending does.
grania knows something must be done, and this is something...:
This is comical. The pundits wanted a plan, so Trump put together specialists and came up with a plan. And, surprise! The naysayers say it can't be done.

Of course it can. Cut back on Common Core and other worse-than-garbage federal programs, send home invaders and fill those jobs with US citizens, bring jobs back home and tax stuff from countries that manipulate money. Is there any chance the pundits factored all that in?
Zenjitsuman remembers how Reagan only cut taxes, and didn't raise spending at all:
JFK and Reagan both successfully cut taxes and raised revenues, got people working again.

The critics don’t know squat
Viennacon knows Trump's plan includes secret radical changes:
What a load of BS. It assumes current spending levels. Something tells me EPA will not exist under a Trump admin
NTHockey managed pay for 20% of Trump's plan by destroying the government, and then invokes anti-illegals to get us to 70%. etc. takes care of the rest:
They got some serious spending cuts to make. Let’s see, eliminate Departments of Energy, Education, Labor, Commerce, HHS, HUD, etc.

Not spending is a spending cut. Doing the above cuts $2 trillion. Eliminate DeathCare and welfare for illegals another $5 trillion. Etc., etc., etc.
jneesy sees the real savings:
one thing i haven’t heard mentioned about his tax plan is how much will be cut out of the irs budget due to its simplistic nature
oldvirginian doesn't know jack, but doesn't trust the media when they disagree with him:
I call chicken manure!

I don’t know jack about economics, but I know these are the same people who take *years* to figure out that Obamacare won’t be such a bad thing.
How in the name of sanity can they nitpick Trump’s tax plan in a couple of days?
They can’t.
They aren’t competent enough to add 2+2 and get an answer of 4!
stig does the math to find that Trump raises his personal deficit by almost 10k per year. And then decides he doesn't care:
We currently have an 18 trillion deficit. Forbes reports there were 85 million tax returns in 2010 that paid taxes. Now that includes married people filing jointly and they estimate that taking that into account means there are probably 122 million people who pay taxes. So doing the math to cover the 18 trillion we each owe:


To cover their estimate of Trump's 1.2 trillion per year will add:

$9836.00 per year.

So note to pundits I'm willing to risk the extra 10 grand per year to see if Trump can grow the economy and cut the budget. Besides I don't have the 150 grand anyway so what's another 80k over a Trump 8 year presidency?
Tucker39 explains that only GOP Administrations create jobs:
This talking point that the “government doesn’t create jobs” is as tiring and false as the “America isn’t a Democracy, it’s a republic” talking point. In reality, the government can do a lot to create jobs and economic prosperity.

Well, they haven’t created any, except government bureaucrat jobs, in the last 7 years. They haven’t because they can’t. They only thing the government produces is paper money. And the more they print, the less value it has.
G Larry knows if you don't assume Trump's plan is magic, you must be a liberal:
Trumps plan generates more revenue.

Therefore, if you insist there will be higher deficits, you must be planning on higher spending.

New Shooting, new levels of crazy

anon1 found this.

I feel like the national attitude about the latest shooting in Oregon is a bit different. Sure, the routine happened - gun people on both sides said said gun things, Freepers decided the guy was gay liberal black Muslim, and then worked hilariously hard to keep him that way as actual facts came in. And I take cold comfort in the statistical rarity of these tragedies.

But the very fact that there was a routine for this seems to have gotten to people. Maybe I'm overly optimistic (probably.) But that's the tone I'm getting at least. Even Obama seemed legitimately angry about it in his statement.

And Freepers...Freepers also seem to sense something building. After the usual flurry of speculation about the shooter's demographics died down, Freepers didn't retreat to their usual paranoid guns bunker and return to hating on Obama and the GOPe. Instead they settled on there just being too many shootings, and blaming Obama. Like a false flag on steroids, Freepers began building a narrative wherein there has been no growth in spree shootings. Instead, Obama has been using secret mind control techniques and crisis actors to make it seem like guns are dangerous.

It's not all Freepers, but for the moment it's the loudest. It's a coalition of legit softheads (chemtrails, Sandy Hook truthers), those seeking to signal that they belong in the ingroup via ever more outlandish ways to show how irrational their hate of Obama is, and those papering over flaws in their worldview with half-believed delusion. Their leader? None other than Lazamataz. Lazamataz has a whole post about microwaves and the usual convenient timing confirmation bias, and then this appeal to incredulity:
Look, too, at the timing of Sandy Hook's mass shooting. It occurred only two weeks after Obama's re-election, and right on the heels of his proclamation to concentrate much more fully on disarming the American public. The horrid nature of Sandy Hook was so heinous, it almost ventured into the cliche. A school full of preschoolers?? Two weeks before Christmas?? Really? Could the shooter have stomped on some kittens on the way in, and twirled his Snidely Whiplash mustache while he shot?
Lazamataz explains that only super strong rational people can indulge in this kind of speculation:
It's a hard one to embrace: Both because you don't want to think our country could sink to this level, and because you know you will be mocked for holding the view.

But when you look objectively at things, it's almost impossible not to conclude some force is orchestrating this stuff. We had nowhere near these level of spree shootings just 7 short years ago.
Lazamataz sees great significance in something that naturally happens as frequencies of anything go up:
I predict we will see mass-shootings timed to occur at or near the same time, in two, three, and four places around the country.

To me, this will merely be more proof of the orchestration of these events.
Lazamataz is not making a great case:
Sorry, but this is lunacy.

Yes, and low-level microwaves do not alter human behavior.

Except research shows they do.
Crazieman is willing to imprison anyone who endorses liberalism, but not this:
Laz, I love you. I reached the opinion vocal lefties should be imprisoned. But I’m not quite there yet on this theory.
CaptainPhilFan: softhead.
It struck me that the Shooter and ObamaCare Pajama Boy looked similar. Looking at their pics (PJB is Ethan Krupp), they have the same moles on their necks, same noses, same sneer. The shooters profile so far is ridiculous.

I’m incapable of posting pics here to back up my theory.

I know, I’m a nut job. Just saying. Pass the tin foil.
Pollster1 hedges his bets, but wants us all to know he hates Obama!
Orchestrating a mass murder for political advancement requires an unspeakable level of evil combined with an insatiable lust for power. Both traits certainly describe Barack Hussein Obama. I’m not convinced this attack was orchestrated, but I’m not convinced it was random either.
SisterK: softhead.
Consider the Gabby Giffords shooting: At the memorial service, Thousands of custom t-shirts (free souvenirs) were draped over the seats at the U of A stadium. Logistically impossible. It is easier to believe that the t-shirts were designed and printed before the shooting.
Hetty_Fauxvert doesn't go for tin foil, and prefers to speculate about the secret feelings of liberals:
Love you bunches, Laz, but I think finding and pushing crazy people over the edge on a schedule is beyond the capabilities of this POS White House. I DO, however, believe strongly that they wait eagerly for the next gun incident, have a plan (and a speech) ready to go at all times, and are prepared to pounce on gun happenings like a kitten on a ball of string.
Secret Operative jsanders2001 has a number of posts explaining how talking can influence people:
I agree and have agreed for some time and was even called an idiot for stating it on here more than a few times but what most people don’t know is that I have experience and training in influencing people using non-verbal / semantic techniques to get them to do what I want them to do as part of my training as an operative in another life. Propaganda and event / psychological manipulation are very real tools used by many law enforcement, investigative and/ or national security agencies, particularly the CIA. This would not be beyond the Obama administration at all given their anti-gun stance nor would it be dificult.
matt1234 goes with the previous Freeper attitude of blaming Obama for this via his general Cloward-Piven persecution of whites:
Are obama operatives in direct contact with shooters? Who knows.

Is obama promoting conflict between classes, races, genders and religions that, in some cases, results in violence? Most definitely!

As a Marxist, obama's prerevolutionary duties are to sow discontent and promote discord, laying the groundwork for societal breakdown and communist ascendancy. These tactics are well documented and in full display in obama's America. His regime has had direct contact with OWS, BLM and other revolutionary groups.

We should not be surprised when the occasional nut job is pushed over the edge of sanity. Obama is promoting that and counting on it.
Finny seems to think the Holocaust was a conspiracy:
Of course, those rumors that circulated in Europe in the early '40s of huge death camps in Germany were obviously only believable to wacko conspiracy nuts because no government would ever do such an evil thing as build mass murder chambers disguised as showers.

Seriously, Boogieman, Crazieman, Pirate Ragnar, Paladin2, SaxxonWoods, TheDon, Hetty Fauxvert, gdani, and all the rest of you "realists" who know better than to believe tinfoil hat conspiracies of organized wickedness on the part of corrupt governments --

Looks to me like a LOT of you need to bone up on your real-world history.
Finny calls out another Freeper for letting probabilities get in the way of hating the government for speculative Holocaust-esque behavior:
So I assume that you would have certainly been smart enough in the early 1940s, as were the vast majority of people around the world, to see through the absurd conspiracy theory that Germans were exterminating Jews literally by the millions by gassing them in fake "showers"?

Because YOU, coop71, being so much more level-headed and realistic, know that corrupt governments engaging in over-the-top murderous conspiracies is only stuff of fiction!

You are a sheep, dear.
stephenjohnbanker is in the ingroup signaler camp:
One thing that holds true about Obama....NOTHING is beneath him. F & F proves it, as does the “deal” with Iran.
Responsibility2nd straddles the signalers and softheads:
Ah yes. Sandy Hook. Some say there were NO children killed. This was a giant hoax perpetrated by the US government to grab our guns. And then there are some really strange theories.

Fact is - none of the various, different and conflicting "official" versions and reports are any more or less absurd than the wildest conspiracy theories.

And this relates to ALL of Obama's tricks. His birth certificate, his OBL capture and death, his Fast and Furious, his handling of mass murders, his Trayvon/Ferguson/etc. racist tactics, and more.

Obma lies when the truth would serve him better.
exit82's citation of movies as evidence shows her softheadedness:
The shooters are youngish men, usually under some type of psychiatric care, or known to be weird.

The “minders”, the pysch docs, usually have some connection to the Dept. of Defense. This was so in the Aurora theater shooting and the I believe the Sandy Hook shooting. I am not sure about the Navy Yard guy.

We had POWS in the Korean War undergo mind control experiments—hence the movie “Manchurian Candidate” in 1962 with Frank Sinatra.

The movie “Telefon” with Lee Remick (sigh!) and Charles Bronson dealt with delayed programming via telephone call, whereas a Soviet sleeper agent was activated to do harm to targets, preprogrammed into the mind.

The speed with which Obama got on TV yesterday, with His totally predictable and nauseating fake anger, shows he needed to get in front of this situation to milk it for maximum effect.

Notice the complete lack of anger when five military recruiters are slaughtered, or when his buddy Rahm’s city, Chicago, experiences more gun violence than any other place in the country on a consistent basis, despite the strictest gun control laws in the US.

I am tired of this routine. Mass shootings started with Clinton’s Presidency, many of them in schools.

Soon, with ISIS and other Perps, we will see malls and shopping centers targeted, perhaps even sporting venues.

And no, I do not trust anyone in Homeland Security to protect us.

For all we know, they are part of the problem.
defconw brings another conspiracy to the table:
Our gov knew exactly what was going on with Tamerlin Tsarvaev. We knew he left to train with jihadists in the Republic of Kyrgyzstan in 2012. When he came back, his passport had expired but we let him back in no questions asked. Explain that one. Russia warned us about him. England warned us about him. His uncle and father in law are CIA.

Can’t be explained accept as you say, CIA. They recruit college kids always have.
doorgunner69's softheadedness extends beyond partisanship to a Glenn-Beck type shadowy New World Order thing:
I do not think this is White hut planned, but by his handlers: Soros et al. They are funding the multitude of gun grabbing groups and would have the resources to hire the specialists to target likely patsies for this sort of stuff.

IF, they were ever exposed even a tiny bit, the disconnect from Obutthole and the DNC is far enough to throw off the scent well before the media buries the hint.
Signaler BuckeyeTexan takes anyone objecting to the idea that Obama isn't orchestrating these shootings as basically supporting Obama:
BuckeyeTexan - If Obama were purposefully working against us, what would he be doin’ differently?

coop71 - Psssst: he’s not.

Anyone who thinks Obama isn’t actively working against us doesn’t belong at Free Republic. The man has said clearly and repeatedly that he opposes nearly everything conservatives stand for.

Since I am not a moderator, I can’t show your ass the door, but I wish someone would. I looked at your posting history and you strike me as an anti-God, liberal feminazi. (Granted, I could stomach only a couple of years of history.) So, WTF are you doing here? Because it sure ain’t conversation and intelligent debate with fellow conservatives.

Monday Potpourri Pt. II

datricker's imagination supplies everything but success:
Trump has given us energy.
Cruz is giving us focus
Planned Parenthood is giving a us bat to hit them over the head with
Putin making Obama look like a tool.
The iran deal is an outrage
Freerepublic provides us a form to speak out

Now we need to figure out how to act and translate it into votes.
I'm willing to bet yefragetuwrabrumuy has not run this clever paradox by any actual liberals, or anyone with a working sense of empathy:
One of the best ways to get leftists to shut up about euthanasia is to propose “prison euthanasia” to them.

Here’s the idea. That states pass laws permitting just those prisoners on death row, or facing life without the possibility of parole, to accept a one-time offer of being euthanized. If they say yes, then change their mind, they don’t get another chance.

But if they say yes, and follow through with it, they are given a psychiatric evaluation, a legal evaluation (to insure their conviction will not be overturned), and assistance to get their affairs in order. Then they are given a lethal injection, maximized to insure it is painless.

Leftists are terrified of the idea of vicious criminals being turned off in any way, and would freak out at this idea. It might even convince them to stop ranting about euthanasia at all. (Which is the real purpose of the exercise.)
Love Busko here, because Freeper debate tips are the best:
He crushed Ryan because Ryan had no balls. First thing you do with Biden is ask him if he has plagiarized anyone lately. Then ask him about why his son is over in the Ukraine running one of their oil industries. He would start stammering and then he would automatically fall apart.
Norm Lenhart is willing to burn America to end all of Obama's policies:
I point to what Barry has done and how he did it. Force of will. Thats how to undo it.

Yes. It will be financial carnage. Yes it will be massive unemployment.

The Iceland bank situation shows that it’s managable. Easier to manage the carnage than to maintain the problems. Most of these jobs are a false economy. The regs eliminated with these depts would immeadiately create a boomtown from atlantic to Pacific. And globally.

But it can be done.
boxlunch has some speculation why the GOP is secretly loyal to Planned Parenthood:
I think Republicans are probably getting lots of campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood. Of course they don’t want to defund it. It’s like defunding their own re-election fund. There is a huge kickback system going on with PP and Congress.

Pretty much all the evil going on in Washington can be traced back to bribes or blackmail.
sand88 is rooting for a terrorist attack leading to a coup:
God forbid, but if Iran or any other terrorist regime succeeds in murdering millions of Americans, then I would wish that every single politician and their staffs would dragged out of where ever they would be hiding and taken care of in the manner that General Washington dealt with traitors -- Those who stood with Cruz would the the only ones spared.
boomop1's nicknames make up for in hate what they lack in wit:
I believe nothing Politico same as Media Faggot Matters.
Uh, oh. Hillary has lost Slyfox!
Is anyone else pretty much worn out with Hillary like I am?
Navy Patriot's Putin love has made for some odd ideas about who is in the mainstream media:
Oh dear, Newsmax, Reuters and the rest of the lamestream media certainly have received a painful wedgie from the new Crusaders.
sanjuanbob may be joking re: Fiorina's face, but I can't be sure based on his posting history...
If you look closely at her face, it is slightly crooked as if her husband or an ex may have slugged her in the jaw. Feel bad for her, but she probably should have just kept her mouth shut and had dinner prepared on time.
I'll never get tired of Freepers like WENDLE who are so against global warming they go the other way:
There is, without a doubt, NO GLOBAL WARMING!! There is global COOLING!!
She's new, but she's talented. Lucy Hamilton provides Short, clear, distilled Freeper crazy.
All Leftists should be put in prison, because they’re going to get us all killed if they’re not stopped.
jimbo123 is turning the Freeper gaydar onto another GOP candidate!
RINOubia is indeed a mini-me Dorkbama.

Rubio also has a gay lisp.
Benghazi can be turned to many uses. CivilWarBrewing tries it to turn an aging scandal new again:
The hacking of Hillary’s server is the CAUSE of the attack in Benghazi. The bad guys knew ALL of Ambassador Stevens’ security arrangement (or lack of), scheduling, times, dates, personnel..
There was another shooting :-(. More on Freepers' full tin foil reaction tomorrow. But CivilWarBrewing brings the tin foil today!
School officials had their orders to allow the shooting to happen. False flag. You mean to tell me the shooter’s Internet rants weren’t reported and they didn’t know this was going to happen? Of course they did!
Patton@Bastogne has another theory about the power of Hillary's e-mails:
Obama has given Iraq to the Caliphate, and Syria to Putin ...

after Putin threatened to blackmail Obama’s sorry corrupt ass with Hillary’s e-mails ...
TTFlyer threatens to sulk patriotically, guys!
Either Trump takes over and purges the GOPe, the military, and the bureaucracy and rights this ship-of-fools or i “shut-down the government” in my own way,

I will not pledge allegiance to the flag of a country that smokes dope and elects Marxists all the while it condones a Holocaust of tens of thousands of defenseless babies within its borders.

This is not America, it is instead well on its way to becoming a degenerate, Neo-Marxist/Fascist state and i refuse to be a part of it. I will pray for such a disgraceful nation’s destruction.

“Down with the Eagle and up with the Cross.” - “The Confederate Battle Cry of Freedom”
gaijin is beyond parody:
“The Mafia”- thats how a shadowy group of progessive Cardinals who ousted Ratzinger and installed Pope Francis jokingly referred to their group.

GAY COMMIE POPE is better than any title I could ever come up with.

1010RD exhorts fellow Freepers to send all the crazy forwards they possibly can!
This administration has never let facts get in the way of a good self-serving narrative.

Don’t let them ever. Twitter, email, texting and the Internet serve us against the gatekeeper media all the time. We’re at war and we need to bring them to heel. You do that by ridiculing them and their lies to death... and winning elections.
laplata believes Nancy Pelosi is literally a demon in a skin suit:
She is what is termed “Perfectly possessed”. Satan has a hold on her and uses her.

For her to have the audacity to claim she is a devout Catholic is proof.
Back to the shooting for a bit. wrench fleshes out the false flag with a Muslim Obama plant:
Wonder what the Obama goons promised this nut.

77 virgins
JEDI4S has his own cause to put forward:
More Americans killed by a welfare recipient? How many EBT cards did he have? More Americans are killed by welfare recipients and illegal aliens than by ISIS.
Kicking it old school, even for Freepers, fwdude blames prayer in school:
Charles Whitman was an early crazed mass shooter in 1966. That was a few years after the Supreme Court found that God was an "unconstitutional intruder" in our public schools.

Connection? You'd better believe it!
jimbug also with the tin foil trend:
As these mass shootings continue, I become more convinced that Obama is taking a page from Hitler's playbook and orchestrating every single one of these events to promote his gun confiscation agenda.

This is perhaps the most cunningly evil persona we have seen in modern times, and only history and Heaven at the Great White Throne judgement will reveal the full extent of the evil being perpetrated on America by this fraud.
DJ Taylor probably thinks he's clever:
Christopher Merced is a half-black, leftist, anti-Christian homosexual just like our president.
Breto follows up on the GAY COMMIE POPE theory:
So it seems Obama now controls the Vatican. Son of perdition father of lies
Norm Lenhart goes full anti-Catholic:
Sorry current catholics. If you stay in that church, you are as much the enemy as Obama. You are empowering this Pope’s crap.

Monday Potpourri Pt. I

Daniel Ramsey is wrong on so many levels...
I read somewhere Islam faith folowing can be surgically removed. If Carson has any thoughts about that i would be very interested.

If muslims really want to be americans they could volunteer for the procedure.
Scientifically, politically, morally, theologically...that has to be a record for wrongness density.

Norm Lenhart has pegged Boehner as a far left deep cover plant:
if you accept that he is as hard left as Barry, it explains every one of his actions.

He spouts right wing rhetoric but when the chips come down, he has set op no win scenarios. Every time. EVERY.

He holds one show vote after another that are set up to fail even when they win because ultimately he will not play hardball and took the biggest weapons off the table going in.

Thats exactly what a leftist plant would to.

max americana recalls how only Freepers were right about the polls in 2008 and 2012:
Just like the Romney and McCain poll, it was a set up by the MSM to first gain “credibility’ then manipulate the polls so the MSM can easily target the weakest and more lefty candidate later on.
4Runner on the unaccountable Carson Presidency:
Another black in the White House will guarantee another teflon-coated presidency. White politicians will never criticize Carson for anything he does just because he is black and no one wants to be accused of “racism”. Do we really need the same damn paradigm all over again after having given Obama an eight-year free pass to do whatever the hell he wants with no consequences to him?
Poor Jacquerie's Civil War 2 time is running out!
Obama and his people have fourteen more months to do as they wish.

Most posters to FR believe no force exists to stop them.

There is, and it is right under our noses.

But there is little time.
PIF strawmans the EPA super hard:
According to the EPA the Earth’s atmosphere should consist solely of pure O2 with no trace gas pollutants? Inhale that pure oxygen and rejoice that you now live on a clean planet and in fear of fire ...
TangoLimaSierra is yet another Freeper keeping a death list for when the government finally starts the purges:
They have homes.
With addresses.
And phone numbers.
They don’t give a s**t about inconveniencing you.
Return the favor.
In spades.
Why should they sleep? Why should they feel safe?

I've been thinking along the same lines: Get all addresses of local LE and politicians just in case we need to reach out and touch some of them when the midnight visits begin and our friends start disappearing.
Dick Bachert makes all his decisions based on what the media doesn't like:

Simple new rule for candidate selection for conservatives: Find out who NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN (and FNN if they keep drifting to port) and the NY Slimes are supporting and immediately scratch them off your list.

As for finding your candidate, ascertain who NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, the Slimes and the RINOs and TURNCOATS in the GOPe are most actively and viciously attacking and you’ve found your pick!

Speaking of the Slimes, the joke going around when Castro siezed power in Cuba was the HE GOT HIS JOB THROUGH THE NY TIMES! If you want that to happen here, remain silent and FAIL TO SHOW UP NEXT NOVEMBER!
meatloaf has a solution to the problem of Obama always talking on TV:
It’s the community organizer in him. Someone needs to massage him with a 2x4 and eliminate it.
Even with a woefully incomplete picture, The Toll can fit the pieces into place:
Russian Marines showed up and ISIS moved back to Frankfurt.
CivilWarBrewing should write a book:
The WORST Pope ever comes to America for the first time ever, at a time when America has the WORST president EVER?

TWO of the largest immigration crisis EVER in the history of the world, one in Europe, one in the U.S., while the WORST U.S. president EVER is in office? JUST A CO-INKY-DINKY? HELL NO!!!!

This has all GOT to be a global conspiracy against America. This is a political attack, not a religious experience. Team U.N./NWO flooding Europe with Islamists and flooding America with third-worlder Democrats to change our election outcomes to favor THEIR MISSION of undermining America. Cuba favored over the U.S. by the Pope? HORRIBLE!!
bert seems to think the 40ish Congressmen in the Freedom Caucus are a majority of the House:
Boehner received a vote of no confidence by those walking the halls

the party in effect no longer backed his lack of leadership in really fighting the whitehouse
867V309 psychoanalyzes everyone he hates:
Everyone has something they desire most:

Bill Cintoon: Sex
Hillary: Power
Boehner: Alcohol
Bush: Validation by election to his unchallenged primary victory
Rubio: Ethnic Support
Obammy: Supremacy over white heterosexuals
Buckeye McFrog predicts our next President will be Trump, Warren or Hitler.
A Populist IS going to be elected President of the United States.

Given that reality, Trump is likely a best-case scenario.

If not him it could easily be the Fake Indian. Or the second coming of Hitler.
skeeter speculates on whether Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is an idiot or a traitor for supporting Ahmed Muhammad:
He’s actually just the nicest guy and always has been.

By all accounts you’re right. He used to Segway past our house all the time on his way to the Apple store downtown, and the staff there seemed to think he was a pretty nice guy.

But there can only be two reasons for Woz to say what he did about this Ahmed kid. One of those doesn’t speak well for his intentions.
Blue Jays cannot fathom the idea that liberals might think the coming horde of jihadis might not even exist:
Liberals have somehow convinced themselves that radicalized Muslim jihadists that are infesting our country will be their "friends" at a later date.
butlerweave finds something worse to call Ahmed Muhammad than a terrorist:
Clock-Boy = Obama Clone
HarleyLady27 explains to Bill Clinton that the silent majority is super duper real: Oh be very, very careful there slick willy....you don't know or understand the dynamite your about to get hit with....
If you think that the past few months we that supporters of Trump's are going to let you (a unregistered sex offender) and your other half (a liar, thief, killer,) back in OUR White House you are sorely mistaken....

We are taking hits like never before, and it isn't just Trump that will blow you and your other’s butts to kingdom come, you haven't seen the following behind Trump....

We have been laying in wait, coming out only when needed to, but watch out when you see us, because you can do whatever you think you can, you won't get off first base....

You might think you know everything there is to know about an election (or erection) but let me tell you, this is OUR election, WE the PEOPLE'S election, and we don't need you and your kind to even look out the window....
Starboard finds Nazis in everything he disagrees with:
I was watching a WWII story on the defeat of Nazi Germany last night. We all know how that played out, but what was insightful was how the German people were so easily manipulated into following a self-destructive and murderous regime. Disinformation and propaganda were very effective.
Right up to the end they were believers and followers.

It was a good illustration of just how easy it is to con the masses into accepting anything. We are in a similar situation today with the Iranian “deal” and the growing threat of ISIS.
Read GOPJ's jihadi fan fiction carefully, and see if you spot it:
My guess: ISIS will have suicide teams walking around spreading radioactive material like it was fertilizer...

It won't be noticeable until Geiger counters start going off - then there will be panic because our side is too stupid to ever plan for anything ahead of time. It'll be 'Katrina' because Obama's a Nagin...

Once 'our guys' have terrified citizens by telling them not to leave the hot zone - the terrorist will use conventional weapons to slaughter frightened victims.

Muslim lowlifes don't have wads of cash like the United States - so they use things like pressure cookers, box cutters, dead children etc.

It's not hard to figure out what they'll do... Here's how they think: ‘what's cheap, effective, maximizes terror, and can be done with fools willing to die to make it happen.’

Best thing for us to do is prepare citizens and first responders... then ask the press to do the kind of stories they do before Hurricane season... but for radiation. ISIS doesn't bluff... if they can do this, they will... We should be prepare.
Dead children, the cheapest of weapons!

Candor7 is drunk or something:
Glowing in the Dark, all infidels shall meet their deaths at the hands of Mohammed the Profit and Allah, IN-shallah!

Alawahooo WACKbar!

Now the hand of Allah moves to arm the Umma with its purifying weapons of mass destruction! Mecca will be ours!

( Hey, just one problem! Donald Trump says no way!)
Oztrich Boy attacks the Catholic Church based on the Spanish Inquisition:
I would expect a Spanishish POPE to respect the Spanish Inquisition's tradition of the justice and mercy expressed by the auto-da-fé
Communism, which has now infested all three branches of government.

And the news outlets, and the education systems, and the churches, and most "non-profits".
SamuraiScot is really in a tizzy about the semiotics behind the word 'try.'
Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday was blocked from trying to link the Iran nuclear deal . . .

You can easily map the bias in a state-controlled-media reporter by where he uses the word "tries." In the language of J-school orthodoxy, you use "tried" to bestow futility or loser-ness on the action of someone of whom you disapprove. For instance, someone I knew scared off two armed muggers who were trying to rob a boy of his expensive roller skates. As the muggers were fleeing, they shot my (unarmed) friend and he died at the scene. He was clearly a hero. He defended not just a young boy he didn't know, but an entire neighborhood and city. If every man acted as he did, that city and the world would be better, safer, and frankly more holy.

But a member of the state-controlled media at the time described this hero as having "died trying to break up a mugging." No, actually, he succeeded in breaking up the mugging. He just didn't survive the scene of his heroism. I suspect he is succeeding rather well in the next world. That's the thing about heroism. If we care about our souls, we can't avoid the necessity, sometime, somehow, of acting heroically, in ways that may be seen or unseen.

Reporters believe it's morally wrong to resist muggers, partly because most of that city's muggers are black, and therefore shouldn't be thwarted in any way—but mostly because such reporters are afraid to resist bad guys themselves, and heroic sacrifice makes them feel like pencil-necked geeks. (Which they are.)

Cruz was blocked from linking "the Iran nuclear" and so on. He wasn't "blocked from trying." He did try. He just didn't succeed—yet. There's a lot that's yet to come from Cruz, and that's what the state-controlled media fears. They are whistling past the graveyard of their entire world.

Spotlight Friday: Windflier

A black Freeper from Texas. His profile is pretty standard Freep - 'I hate Islam and love Texas and guns.' He's only been a Freeper since 2007, but he's very active. He had a brief period of trying to encourage protests and action, but has since lapsed into the usual keyboard commando style.

He's a big Trump fan, but before that he's always had a great white hope for the GOP - Cruz, Palin. And Allen West.

His racial politics are, of course, interesting. He's pretty quiet on the usual feral monkey lynchfests (though he'll show up for the anti-Muslim ones!), but he did decide Trayvon Martin was an evil soon-to-be murderer with the rest of them. He tries to post about how some blacks are good conservatives, which Freepers generally ignore.

His family life is also of note. His wife seems to agree with him, but the rest of his family seems less willing to join a movement of people who contemplate racial holy war against them.

Blacks vote for Democrats because of the herd mentality:
It's a long road back to political independence for most black people. I made my own escape during the Clinton years, but then I've always been the type who seeks my own way. I suppose those with the herd mentality just have to be let down and abused for decades before they clearly see they've been had.

Perhaps now is that time.
March, 2015: Hillary Clinton's political career ended.
Did you see the latest bombshell from the NY Times? They dropped a scandalous story about Chelsea Clinton just yesterday. There's no doubt that that was done to communicate to the Clintons in no uncertain terms, that they are to immediately cease and desist all thoughts of running Hillary in 2016.

And now Hillary meets Ubambo in the White House without any reporters present. The meeting wasn't on Dear Reader's published schedule. All hush hush. Um-hmm...

If you ask me, I think he's finally telling her to her face, that her career in politics is over.
Indeed, since that time her seeming run for the Presidency is really just a scam:
A real candidate would spend $30,000,000 to boost her image. Hillary isn’t doing that. Why?

Because her run for office is a complete sham, meant to fool all the despots and globalist kingpins who gave millions to her 'foundation'.

She needs to make them believe they had a chance at getting something for their money. She's known all along that 2008 was her one and only shot at the White House.
Anyhow, she'll die for real soon:
Hillary is quite literally running for her life. I'd be surprised if she doesn't drop dead from stress over the coming months.

Her dirty dealing, deceitful life, has finally caught up to her.
If she's not killed by unnamed evil people she works with:
I hope she is worried that some very nasty people are thinking about wanting their money back.

I have a strong suspicion that many of them have already realized they're being double-crossed by the Clintons.

Note that Bubba has ceased being a frequent flyer, and is no longer giving million dollar speeches, while Hillary's sparse public appearances are more tightly controlled than an audience with the Pope.

I think they're laying low behind S.S. protection for now.
Civil War 2 will destroy the liberals at last:
When this all goes down, many of the 47% may not survive. Then it is up to us to have leaders ready to establish a Constitutional Republic that can withstand the onslaught of time and the onslaught of ‘democracy’.

GGpa, I believe your glimpse into the crystal ball of our future to be completely accurate. Unless the treasonous left is (somehow) forced to relent and retreat, it will come to a second revolution. That's a battle that they cannot win.

If they had a lick of sense, they'd go back to the device of slow motion incrementalism that served them so well throughout the twentieth century. In the new century, they've thrown caution to the wind, and are sprinting toward what they think is the finish line.

But they fail to see that, by putting the pedal to the metal, they've awakened and alarmed The People, who are now on full alert and preparing for the ultimate confrontation.

Should that confrontation come, the left as we've known it will not survive.
Our military sucks now, so Civil War 2 is sure to go awesome:
The American military has been tied down in Afghanistan for over a decade by a bunch of 7th century towelheads with AKs and IEDs. Can you even imagine the level of difficulty with prosecuting a shooting war against a culturally advanced, heavily armed, and educated patriot population?

Unless George Soros becomes Emperor of The World sometime soon, nothing remotely like that scenario is even possible. Conquer the American people by force? It's a leftist pipe dream, nothing more.
He accepts that his fellow Freepers will kill him for being black, when the revolution comes!
Well, Ol Buddy if it ever comes to an actual shoot ‘em up I do not believe I will ask if they are the good 12% or the bad 1%. Or if they drop their weapon and walk away they will not get a free pass.

That is just the way it is going to be.

If it ever comes to an actual shoot 'em up, melanin enriched conservatives like me, will all get the old double tap. Guaranteed, because no one will bother to ask us which side we're on.

That is just the way it is going to be.
His daughter will be a slut now that the morning after pill exists:
As if it isn’t already hard enough to keep a fifteen year old girl child on the straight and narrow path her parents have raised her on.

As soon as this stuff goes on sale, all the teenage girls will be sharing them like candy. Grrrr....
If her uncle doesn't pollute her mind with liberal Facebook posts!
My husband unfriended his radically liberal sister.

I did the same thing with my radical progressive brother, after he got on my daughter's Facebook page and began trying to fill her head with Obama worshiping nonsense.
And his son became an OBAMA VOTER!!!
My 28 year old son spent 7 years working with me and listening to conservative talk radio all day, every day in his late teens and early twenties. He got a very good education in politics and culture during that time, and voted R when he went to the polls.

But, after getting out from under my wing, and moving to a solid liberal environment, he went soft. Some time back, he confessed to me that he voted for Obama, and went so far as to vigorously defend that vote.

To say I'm disappointed in him is a gross understatement. It feels more like a great loss to me.
Sarah Palin in 2011 was his wife's last hope:
My wife hardly follows politics at all, and gets her news from Yahoo, yet when Sarah Palin announced that she wasn't going to seek the GOP nomination, my wife fell into a blue funk that was so severe, it surprised me.

It was so deep, that the mere mention of the 2012 race could put her on an emotional roller coaster that brought actual tears. That's how invested she was in Sarah's potential candidacy.

A few days back, she asked me about the news she was seeing about a possible brokered Republican convention. She wanted to know how it worked, and whether that meant that Palin could possibly nominated that way. I quickly brought her up to speed on that, and the whole 'Palin earthquake movement'.

As I talked, I could see her skipping over all of the details and snagging the high points, but I'll tell you what. That blue funk she had has disappeared. The woman actually has some hope again.
President Palin, 2012 is inevitable
The Sarah Palin machine is working, without any real expenditures, and all the money all the grassroots are sitting on is still sitting there, awaiting her announcement, whenever that will be.

I sensed that that would be the case, even before the primary circus began. I've said for a long time, that millions of Americans chose Sarah Palin as their president on November 4th, 2008. I certainly did.

As far as I, and millions of others are concerned, the 2012 race is a mere formality. She became the 45th President a long time ago.
Palin has already been acting President since 2008:
PDSers often crow that some have already 'coronated' Palin as president. It's not a coronation. It's a simple acknowledgment that the lady is already shouldering the responsibility of national leadership. The real coronation will come later.
Obama comes from fake America:
People call him an alien, and that's what he is. He's never been an American, even though he's mastered the art of sounding like one when it suits him.

He comes from a place that is utterly alien to you and I. A place so radically different from our America, that it might as well be a foreign country.

This is why everything that comes out of his mouth rubs us the wrong way. This is why his foreign relations are so bizarrely ass-backwards. This is why he demonizes mainstream America the way he does. We're completely alien to him.
Speaking of sluts, Hillary was totally a college whore!
Wish I could remember their handle now, but there's at least one Freeper who attended college with the Clintons, and he recalls Hillary being a skank of the first order.

According to him, Bubba shared her 'liberally' with his frat brothers.
2012: Hillary never had a soul:
Hillary never has had a soul. At least not the type that most ordinary humans are familiar with. It's why Bubba's been 'off the leash' for the last thirty years.

Look at any recent photos of Hillary. She appears to have aged ten years or more since the 2008 election. There's no question that she's now certifiably elderly, and in my opinion, it's because a lifetime of evil intent and deed, has finally eaten its way to the surface of her body.

In another four years, she's going to look like a corpse on life support.
Blacks can be good!
With all the attention lately on feral black teens, here's a story about one who's just a normal, upstanding kid.
Really, it's only those insane blacks that want to kill whitey:
Considering that black people are only 13% of the population and want to mass murder the other 87% I would say they are biting off more than they can chew!

Of course, it's not the entire 13% of blacks who are advocating this. Probably not even 1% of blacks, altogether. These people are quite literally insane.
But not those Trayvon supporters:
Trayvon’s homies will be there shortly to burn down the good Reverend’s church. Bet on it.
And his music tastes are Texas approved:
I think it’s a characteristic of aging that one can get pop-culturally “stuck”

Too true. Never thought I'd see the day, but I've become my dad in that regard.

About the only new music I can stand these days, is country. Being an old metal head, I would have never predicted that, either .. LOL
And Muslims should all be deported:
If I had my way, every muzzie in this country would be packed up and moved to an Islamic country of their choice.
Is Europe man enough to genocide the Muslims?
European men are going to have to dig deep and resurrect their inner barbarian, if they hope to save themselves, their families, and their countries.

Let us hope they still can.
He never really trusted Herman Cain:
I'm glad I never placed my complete trust in Herman Cain. What a traitor.
aCruz is the new Palin!
To be attacking him so soon in the cycle, the libs must truly be afraid of Cruz.

It's Palin Redux.

Remember how the left reacted to her acceptance speech? They're doing it all over again, and for the exact same reason.

Ted Cruz has the power to exterminate their entire movement. They know this, and like demons, they're shrieking to the rafters in terror.
Ted Cruz's logo is full of deep meaning:
Love Ted’s symbol/logo. It looks like an American flag in the shape of a flame, which very much communicates to me in these perilous times.

I think it represents many things about us and our country - the eternal flame of our founding principles, the torch of liberty being carried forward by each generation, the fire of longing within our hearts for the restoration of this magnificent land.

Brilliant positioning.
Allen West!
Although I'd like to see Allen West get a lot more seasoning under his belt before running for president, I'm afraid the desperation of the times calls more for character, than experience. He's precisely the sort of strong-willed patriot that we need in the White House now.

If one million patriots could all agree on going to Tampa and forcing West's nomination at the convention, I believe it could work. Nothing less than something of that magnitude will bring it about.
Only Trump can save us!
I am sincerely convinced that he's the only chance we've got to save the republic.

What a world. Not even a year ago, I would have laughed in your face if you'd told me I'd be saying that today.
Glenn Beck is now an un-person:
Un-frikken-real. Glenn Beck always was a bit half cocked, but he’s now gone full-blown nutjob. Won’t be long til he’s openly supporting Hillary Clinton.

I vote for banning all further articles or links to Glenn Beck content on Free Republic.
Putting Freepers who criticize Trump in their place:
Trump keeps running his mouth, people are really going to go after him. He needs to just shut up.

As a newbie, you might want to clarify what you mean by "shut up". A lot of regulars might finger you for some kind of paid disruptor with that sort of comment.

Especially during a presidential primary.
Civility on Free Republic is really just censorship!
No flaming others on this thread. Thanks.

Yes, I'm sure you'd like very much for us Freepers to sit quiet while you systematically abuse JimRob's website to tear down the front-running, outsider, Republican candidate for president.

Just like the libs, the muzzies, the leftmedia, and the GOP-e -- you want us silenced.

Ain't gonna happen, troll.
Free Republic kinda sucks now. Thanks, GOPe!
I’ve been here for years and have noticed the slow decline in the quality of the postings.

You're not alone.

In my opinion, it's a direct result of the stultifying presence of GOP-e bots and the doom and gloom brigade. Folks with better minds get turned off and stay away.

If it continues too much longer, this place will become unrecognizable.

And Now This Word from Outer Space

Paranoid paranoid confirming storytime edition:
http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3200158/posts Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives
Frontpagemag.com ^ | 9-2-2014 | Mallory Millett

During my junior year in high school, the nuns asked about our plans for after we graduated. When I said I was going to attend State University, I noticed their disappointment. I asked my favorite nun, “Why?” She answered, “That means you’ll leave four years later a communist and an atheist!”

What a giggle we girls had over that. “How ridiculously unsophisticated these nuns are,” we thought. Then I went to the university and four years later walked out a communist and an atheist, just as my sister Katie had six years before me.

Sometime later, I was a young divorcee with a small child. At the urging of my sister, I relocated to NYC after spending years married to an American executive stationed in Southeast Asia. The marriage over, I was making a new life for my daughter and me. Katie said, “Come to New York. We’re making revolution! Some of us are starting the National Organization of Women and you can be part of it.”

I hadn’t seen her for years. Although she had tormented me when we were youngsters, those memories were faint after my Asian traumas and the break-up of my marriage. I foolishly mistook her for sanctuary in a storm. With so much time and distance between us, I had forgotten her emotional instability.

And so began my period as an unwitting witness to history. I stayed with Kate and her lovable Japanese husband, Fumio, in a dilapidated loft on The Bowery as she finished her first book, a PhD thesis for Columbia University, “Sexual Politics.”

It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:

“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”

Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears. Was I on planet earth? Who were these people?

“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.

They proceeded with a long discussion on how to advance these goals by establishing The National Organization of Women. It was clear they desired nothing less than the utter deconstruction of Western society. The upshot was that the only way to do this was “to invade every American institution. Every one must be permeated with ‘The Revolution’”: The media, the educational system, universities, high schools, K-12, school boards, etc.; then, the judiciary, the legislatures, the executive branches and even the library system.

It fell on my ears as a ludicrous scheme, as if they were a band of highly imaginative children planning a Brinks robbery; a lark trumped up on a snowy night amongst a group of spoiled brats over booze and hashish.

To me, this sounded silly. I was enduring culture shock after having been cut-off from my homeland, living in Third-World countries for years with not one trip back to the United States. I was one of those people who, upon returning to American soil, fell out of the plane blubbering with ecstasy at being home in the USA. I knelt on the ground covering it with kisses. I had learned just exactly how delicious was the land of my birth and didn’t care what anyone thought because they just hadn’t seen what I had or been where I had been. I had seen factory workers and sex-slaves chained to walls.

How could they know? Asia is beyond our ken and, as they say, utterly inscrutable, and a kind of hell I never intended to revisit. I lived there, not junketed, not visited like sweet little tourists — I’d conducted households and tried to raise a child. I had outgrown the communism of my university days and was clumsily groping my way back to God.

How could twelve American women who were the most respectable types imaginable — clean and privileged graduates of esteemed institutions: Columbia, Radcliffe, Smith, Wellesley, Vassar; the uncle of one was Secretary of War under Franklin Roosevelt — plot such a thing? Most had advanced degrees and appeared cogent, bright, reasonable and good. How did these people rationally believe they could succeed with such vicious grandiosity? And why?

I dismissed it as academic-lounge air-castle-building. I continued with my new life in New York while my sister became famous publishing her books, featured on the cover of “Time Magazine.” “Time” called her “the Karl Marx of the Women’s Movement.” This was because her book laid out a course in Marxism 101 for women. Her thesis: The family is a den of slavery with the man as the Bourgeoisie and the woman and children as the Proletariat. The only hope for women’s “liberation” (communism’s favorite word for leading minions into inextricable slavery; “liberation,” and much like “collective” – please run from it, run for your life) was this new “Women’s Movement.” Her books captivated the academic classes and soon “Women’s Studies” courses were installed in colleges in a steady wave across the nation with Kate Millett books as required reading...
Satirical levels of feminism is Communism rhetoric brought to you by a fool in paradise ("Psychopathia Sexualis, I'm in love with a horse that comes from Dallas" - Lenny Bruce (1958)):
