Morning, everybody! I have no idea how this edict slipped under my radar, but it doesn’t matter much, since the edict has been lifted!
ALEX JONES’ WRITTEN STATEMENT ON INTERNET CENSORSHIP

This is a dangerous precedent that can be used against any ideology, left or right
Across the board in what appears to be a highly-coordinated effort to silence the message behind Infowars and Alex Jones, most major social media, backbone utilities associated with our web site and video platforms have launched unprecedented account bans and suspensions on virtually all of our channels.
Regardless of what you think of me, and what you have heard indirectly through third-party sources, you are clearly witnessing a 21st century purge of an ideology.
(500 words of “Blah blah blah poor pitiful me” bullshit snipped)
**************************IMHO: This is downright criminal what the left is doing to Alex Jones. I am therefore lifting the general restrictions we have on posting from infowars.com with the exception that we still do not want 9/11 type conspiracy nonsense posted to FR.
So – as long as the posters refrain from posting Alex Jones’ conspiracy theories, the ban on his bullshit is lifted?
This should be a very short thread.
Our long-standing general policy about no profanity, no personal attacks, no violence, no racism, etc, still stands. Alex Jones/infowars restrictions were in place on FR due to his 9/11 type conspiracy theories which we still do not want on FR.

You are absolutely correct! They are call us mentally ill.

He has other, more rational topics?

Bad news conspiracy theorists. QAnon codes are just a guy mashing his keyboardGraham Cluely ^ | 8-14-2018 | Graham CluelyPosted on 8/15/2018, 8:42:05 PM by pluvmanteloResearcher Mark Burnett is a world authority on passwords. Think I’m kidding? He has collected millions of passwords over the last couple of decades, and has written a book about the real-life password analyses he has done. It shouldn’t be any surprise then to hear that he’s the kind of guy who’s familiar with the different way people choose passwords – including those who think they can generate a really random password by just mashing their keyboard like a crazy man. Enter the bat-shit crazy QAnon conspiracy theory, which – amongst other things – believes that there is a huge undiscovered paedophile ring run by the powerful liberal elite.*******************While the author is clearly a Q skeptic, the argument he purveys is, in my view, cogent. Take it as you will

To: pluvmanteloOh dear. I was unaware there was such a thread. So sorry.
There’s a nightly Q thread, but it really is for enthusiasts and true believers. Most of us skeptics treat it as a private party, and refrain from posting there.
I wouldn’t post anything of a skeptical nature there, unless you’ve got a hide as hard as dragon scales.
I posted 3 Trump tweets trashing Sessions there last night, in their q thread safe space. F em. Sick of their crap littering fr.
Yeah, thick hide no worries. Unlike them.

Thinking there’s a huge pedo ring run by the powerful liberal elite is *bat-shit crazy*?
The Q thing is a larp designed to make Donald trump supporters look crazy and unhinged.
If you notice you are starting to see Q signs at trump rally’s to make us all look like conspiratards. Mueller and rosenstein are not our friends. Trump has not fired them because so many republicans in the senate dont have his back and would make his life hell if he did the right thing and fired them.
To: Basket_of_DeplorablesI always wonder about those trolling every Q thread so vocally especially when Q is so against pedophiles. Makes me wonder about their true motives,you’re the sheep, how often on freerepublic are you and the New Your Times Washington Post CNN MSNBC ETC in lock step? So, you think this time they are telling you the truth, LOL
Omarosa Manigault-Newman should never have been allowed to breathe Situation Room air, and that she did, while jeopardizing national security, is a sad and frightening testament to the Trump administration’s utter lack of seriousness from its conception.
And now, the President is paying the price for hiring some of the worst people to work for him: An unqualified, backbiting and dishonest former employee is waging a public relations war.
But if the tape does ever materialize, it’s fair to say with certainty that Trump will suffer no real consequences for it. There are a few reasons why.
Two groups of voters — those who don’t care and those who don’t mind — will help keep Trump afloat.
Plenty of Trump supporters made an early calculation that whatever he says or does that is otherwise loathsome is an acceptable bargain if he also restores jobs, nominates the right judges, lowers taxes or builds the wall. They won’t care.
Plenty of other Trump supporters voted for him because they saw him as a protector of white America, whether through rhetoric or policy. They won’t mind.
And, as I said, the GOP has shown little moral fortitude beyond milquetoast denouncements of Trump here and there. Why would that change now?
****************Was she ever really a conservative? You can ditch the fake glasses now honey, no one thinks you’re smart. Oh, and politicians don’t have fans, they have constituents and supporters.

I am so tired of all of this crap that happened or might have happened X number of years ago. The past is the past. I highly doubt that there is a single person alive that has not said some word at some time in their life that someone else wouldn’t find offensive. I don’t like the word and don’t use the word but when I was a kid growing up X number of years ago, round rocks found in the field were called n*****r heads………..my Dad said it all of the time. I guess we had a lot of rocks in the field…..
WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Defense is planning a military parade at the request of President Donald Trump, White House and Pentagon officials said Tuesday.
After observing the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris last year, Mr. Trump said he wanted to hold a similar parade on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, perhaps to celebrate the Fourth of July.
The French parade last July, which also marked the centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I, featured more than 6,000 service members, tanks and planes overhead in an elaborate display of military might. French President Emmanuel Macron invited Mr. Trump to watch the parade beside him.
“It was one of the greatest parades I’ve ever seen,” Mr. Trump said in September at the Lotte New York Palace hotel. “And to a large extent, because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July Fourth in Washington, down Pennsylvania Avenue. I don’t know. We’re going to have to try and top it.”
**********************This is a bad idea. Leave military parades to the North Koreans. We already have Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day.
To: reaganaut1This is a bad idea. Leave military parades to the North Koreans. We already have Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day.
Ick… I don’t like the idea of this either. Seems very 3rd world…
Everybody loves a parade.
it will be a grand parade, a focal point of American patriotism and America’s military strength and deliver the message to the world that American does have a substantial armed forces.
However, the parade should not be held on July 4th but rather Flag Day, June 14th which also happens to be President Trump’s Birthday.
To: LopeoverMilitary parades are not part of American tradition. The thought reminds me of the USSR, China and North Korea’s Military parades that I have seen on TV
Your feinting(sic) couch is ready.
DC mayor taunts Trump after cancellation of military parade

President Donald Trump sought to cast blame Friday for the cancellation of his planned military parade on Washington city council officials, saying they had inflated the cost.
Soon after the President tweeted, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed she “got thru” to Trump about costs for the parade, which at one point was calculated to run about $12 million but more recent estimates said could run as high as $92 million by the time Trump canceled the event.
“The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it,” Trump tweeted Friday morning.
The President said he will instead “attend the big parade already scheduled at Andrews Air Force Base on a different date, (and) go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th.”
When Trump is inaugurated for his second term, the first thing he should do is use eminent domain to destroy every house within the DC area. That area was mandated as the seat of gov’t & should be used as such. People should not be living there. Either cut away the lands & give them to Maryland or Virginia, or just get rid of any residential structures. That way they can’t insist on voting rights if things take a turn to the left in the future.
