Free Republic (FR), which identifies itself as "an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web," is a "non-commercial, limited liability company founded and operated by Jim Robinson, a private citizen of Fresno California."  Free Republic's Kristinn Taylor coordinates and serves as a press contact for the pro-war lobby groups Gathering of Eagles and Move America Forward.
Although "Alliances" and "Resources" listed on the website are right-wing / conservative, the Free Republic website claims that it is "not affiliated with any political party, group, news source, government agency or anyone else." Forums include the GOP Club and RNC Caucus and do not appear to include Democratic Party links in any form. "Talk Shows" listed include such right-wing media icons as G. Gordon Liddy, Glenn Beck, Hugh Hewitt, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Tony Snow. 
According to its website, Free Republic is "working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America."
