We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

  • So apparently it is "false and defamatory" to write anything at all about WikiLeaks or Julian Assange ... god damn ... this list of 140 things is pretty hilarious ... it's almost like they don't want you talking about certain things .. which naturally, leads the Press to start talking about it ... ie The Streisand Effect

              Looks like an SNL spoof. The Dems need new leaders out in front. These two have no more credibility during this government shutdown than Trump. It's clear they don't care any more about those 'peasants' going without pay than Trump. This would have been the ultimate opportunity to push the agenda with fresh faces, winning them political points in the process.

                It takes two to tango. Border security is just a show for both parties. They don't really want to secure the border.

                  What are you talking about? Whether you like these two jokers or not, Trump is the only one who owns the shutdown. A bill was agreed to by all parties in Congress and the Senate - both Dems and Republicans - but Trump refused to sign it. The only way the shutdown ends is if Trump backs away from the ledge. He's not getting the wall money, nor should he, as the facts don't support the need for it and both sides know that.

                      Trump wants the wall because he built his campaign on being the tycoon who can get things done better and more cost effective than the out of touch and incompetent government(paraphrasing him). He claimed the wall was the best way to secure the border and I understand that to back off that now would give his opponents an even more effective target than the proposed wall itself. This is why this standoff is likely to get even more messy: he has something to lose by giving in and not much to lose by waiting it out.

                      I don't know what the answer is on the border but what I do know is that based on what I've learned it's quite easy for terrorists and armed cartel members to freely enter America in the south. He has a point in that, it's just clouded by all the noise he brings with anything he touches. The Dems have tried to throw everything that could stick at that wall: racism, hypocrisy, ego, you name it. Meanwhile they all live in gated communities surrounded by walls.

                          He initially spelled it "Forrest" twice as well ... which is hilarious and sad.

                            Does Cali have an active fire break program? For example, the Fort Mac, AB forest fire from a few years ago could have been adverted had the government taken past close calls more seriously and cut a sufficient fire break to hinder the fires from spreading.

                            There's money to be made of those logs too. I'm surprised Trump hasn't started a logging company.

                              That's true to some extent. Centrist Democrats don't want to stop illegal immigration because they want to import a new slave class of Democratic voters. Centrist Republicans don't want to stop illegal immigration because their corporate sponsors want to import a new slave class of labor because it is cheaper than hiring Americans (this is also true of Centrist Democrats). Progressives, who should want to stop illegal immigration, don't want to because they hate the West and want to change it irrevocably and they know the best way to do that is to import a new non-Western population.

                              I should note that all of that makes perfect sense if your view of the world doesn't go beyond power politics and the immediate future. The long term economic and social implications are ignored because the political class has no skin the game, nothing to lose, and will never be held to account for the damage it is causing. In fact, quite the opposite, most will benefit from it.

                              However, I would say that a not insignificant percentage of Americans, Democrat and Republican alike, do want to stop illegal immigration. Populist leftists and righties both fear the economic and social effects of mass immigration. They are not wrong. Trump speaking to the issue is a big reason he won. If he doesn't deliver, people will start looking for someone who can.

                              • Just curious, any of the Canadians on here with the constant "Trump is the biggest threat ever to the Rule of Law and civil liberties" have any thoughts on what is happening in their own country? Bueller?
