Agree. What ever happened to the Republican stance on personal freedom and choice? What happened to not having an overbearing government, or in this case a party, exerting control over a person’s free choice? Sounds more Nazi-like to me, when you are forcing individuals to endorse a highly unliked, and untrusted candidate that changes his policy views on a whim.

My math must be fuzzy.
I was pretty sure that by me not voting for Trump or Hillary, my vote was a ZERO for both. I didn’t know that not voting for Trump actually sent my non-vote to Hillary.
That seems pretty magical to me. Is it osmosis or something?
I am pretty sure, that Hillary will not get an additional vote. Just saying.
Of course, maybe I am way off base here. I mean, I could have sworn X (Trump votes) + 0 (my vote) = X (Trump votes remain the same). I didn’t know X (Trump votes) + 0 (my vote) = 1 additional Hillary vote.
I guess you learn something new everyday.
So, if Trump had disparaged your significant other, and your parent(s) in the same manner, in addition to routinely calling you a disparaging name, you would still vote for him? I would not. I don’t think my wife would much appreciate it if I did either. Cruz continues to maintain the moral high ground, a place that Trump has never seen in his life.
 September 19, 2016 at 9:12am
So, Cruz is just supposed to blindly agree to support whomever the eventual candidate is regardless of anything and everything the candidate may do or say that Cruz, and many other conservatives deem as disqualifying?
To slander another candidate’s wife and father are beyond reproach. You should be free to break from any such “agreement” once Trump spews such vitriol.
And to hold that candidate in contempt for the next election? What if Trump looses to Clinton? What if it is a landslide? Should we then only allow those that agreed with Trump, supported Trump, and held similar acrobatic views as Trump to run? Wouldn’t that see the same results in 2020?
Or, should we then allow, a real conservative, whom doesn’t go around disparaging everyone to run for office?
I think if you go out on the line and support Trump, and he looses, you should go down with the boat as well. Because, you are responsible for it. Not I. My singular vote, which will not be going towards either Trump or Clinton, will not be the cause of his loss. Trump will have to own his loss. His surrogates will have to own the loss. Because it is he, and them that will not hold the candidate to task for the sewage the pours out of his mouth.
So, it looks like I will be either voting for Johnson, writing in Cruz’s name, or writing in either of my cats when the time comes. I will spend my time voting for real conservatives, not those fake ones we keep getting told to vote for or else.
One of 2 people will be in the White House and your vote or non-vote will decide this. Don't pretend that if you stab your fellow Republicans in the back that the resulting bleed is unrelated.
I do notice that the one 'conservative' value I am seeing more than any is to stab each other in the back. Maybe conservatives deserve to die out because for decades when given power we have gotten NOTHING to show for it.
Yes Cruz and everyone else that thinks the same way should be held accountable. If hillary get's elected, it will be because of the Cruzers. Any vote for Clinton, well, is a vote for Clinton, any vote for a third party candidate, is a vote for Clinton, anyone who sits home and refuses to vote in this election is a vote for hillary. So, yes in this particular instance we must select the lesser of two evils. Cruz needs to stand up dust off his bruised ego, and help the party.
He is either with us or against us, there is no heroic middle ground. In the beginning Trump was my last pick. Every time it narrowed down, I chose someone else. When it got down to just Trump or hillary, I had to grin and bear it, and will be voting for Trump. The alternative will affect this country for the next 2 generations.
You make a commitment to the party because it serves your intrest ,, Your are in politics where all of you say it is blood sport and thne you lose and decide to break your pledge ? If that is ok with people your not republican or Conservitive your a cuckold ..

I completely agree. If Trump is elected, and all of those here illegally are not deported, or are given an expedited option to gain legal status, then all those now Americans that went through the immigration process legally the first time, should be refunded their money. Deportation is what Trump rode to victory during the primaries, where he bashed Bush and Rubio for being too soft on the issue. Now look at him.
Trump is a joke. He has been more flexible on his policy stances than one of the Olympic gymnasts.
Makes you start to wonder about this big, huge, beautiful, magnificent wall Trump was talking about building…………..
 August 19, 2016 at 9:07am
And Trump wants to fine such companies a high tarrif if they do. Not very free market if you ask me. Just saying.

I will vote for neither Trump or Hillary. I will however vote for Congressional and Senate seats, and for the candidates that I believe will uphold CONSERVATIVE values. If we loose the Presidency, I can live with that, as long as we have a stronger, more conservative House and Senate that will hold her, and even Trump in check.
Trump thinks that our national debt is OK. He said debt is a good thing. He believes that the government should pay for health care. Not very conservative thinking if you ask me.
I am voting my conscience. I am not going to rubber stamp the top of the ticket, just because someone tells me that if I do not, I am somehow casting a vote for the other candidate. That isn’t how it works. My non vote for Trump is also a non vote for Hillary. That is one less vote either candidate gets. Unless of course you grew up on Common Core math, then I can see how a non vote for Trump can all of the sudden turn into a vote for Hillary.
Beck might be out there at times. True. But, he also is right on point at times as well.
The only reason Trump would want to be president is to lower estate and corporate taxes so that his empire will grow. Its really only for personal profit and not a calling to do good for the nation or conservationism.
A conservative Senate majority would also hold the Supreme Court nomination in check…………..I would rather vote for them than either of the two monkeys at the top of the ticket……
“The only reason Trump would want to be president is to lower estate and corporate taxes”
US companies are moving overseas due to the high corporate tax here and taking jobs with them.
82ndABNVET, I rarely read the reply section of any internet site, anymore. Just makes me ashamed of my fellow American.
Your post here is EXCELLENT! THANK YOU, for posting. I know there are still a few out there, who are right-thinking, and have eyes that see.

While I wish I could agree, I cannot. The Islamic State was just an evolution of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI). Same players, different name when they decided to be a bit more radical. They were around during Bush’s presidency. Yes, Obama “set the conditions” for the group to expand and flourish after we removed our troops from Iraq. However, it is a stretch to say that Obama is the FOUNDER.
See, Trump likes to play loosely with facts. He never says anything truthful, just with bits of truth tucked into conspiracy theories and falsehoods.
I will say that Obama’s failed military strategy has surely ensured that the group will continue to be a thorn in our sides, or the sides of our allies for many years to come. Hillary will only continue the same failed strategies. And Trump, well no one knows what Trump will do, because he is at heart a Liberal, and will do anything or say anything to “WIN”. He doesn’t really seem to care about actually governing and righting the ship. More so about his own success.
And I will say, that yes, even Bush himself “set the stage” for the Islamic State. While it is true that Saddam was a not so nice person, and he killed Iraqi’s and Kurds like they were annoying ants, he for the most part held Iraq in check. Matter of fact, he helped to hold Iran in check as well. Toppling Saddam opened up Pandora’s Box. Now, Iraq is a total crap fest. Iran pretty much has taken ownership of Iraq. And we have AQI, now the Islamic State to show for.
You obviously don't spend your time at the refreshment bar on the Trump train.
Just remember, Cruz dad was in on the JFK assasination. Are we seriously considering a guy that suggested that. Thankfully, the presidential selection is never an accident so he doesn't stand a chance. On the other hand...that means we're stuck with hilldogg
Though I don't agree with your take on Trump, I 100% agree with your take on Iraq.
Bush never should have invaded in the first place and took out Saddam, it took a brutal dictator like him to keep all the factions in line, as well as his neighboring enemy Iran, he really did not allow much in the way of terrorism within his own borders to interfere with his running of it. The next big mistake was BHO pulling out all the troops in a pure political move to discredit the previous administration, as I'm sure your aware, we could have used a stable occupied Iraq as a base of operations in the region, if we had done this, and not allowed BHO & Clinton to go regime toppling, we would have a totally different outlook in the Middle East....

Thats funny. Everyone with a clearance understands a common standard, which is to not put classified information on an unclassified system. In reality it is a pretty basic standard. Don’t do it. She obviously can’t follow simple standards.
 April 14, 2016 at 2:49pm
So dumb. Sure, the cops will come out and check it out. Once they realize the guys are not carrying a gun, they should leave. Not breaking a law…………nothing to see. He even came out and said you are not breaking a law. So dumb.
Good point about Trump's kids. It's not like this is their first election. They most likely are registered Democrats and can't vote in the Republican primary.
Hannity can support whoever he wants, but don't come on the radio and tv and tell us how conservative you are. You can't be a conservative and support someone like Trump! And don't lecture the rest of us when we refuse to vote for Trump if he ends op being the Republican nominee. Most of us live our values and morals and won't violate them even for a fraud with an R after his name on the ballot.

“The people” actually don’t have much say. Yes, we go to the voting booth and select who we prefer. Most states lock the delegates in proportionally on the results of said vote. However, it is the delegates that actually nominate our candidate, not the people.
While the delegates might be “locked” into voting how they were told to on the 1st ballot, and in some state they are “locked” on the second ballot if there is one as well………….there really is nothing keeping them from jumping ship all together and voting for whom ever they want on the 1st ballot honestly. They will not be fined. They will not be charged with a crime. They will not be sued. The only thing that can really happen if the state leadership wants is that they be barred from being a future delegate.
So, while Trump may have over 700 “pledged” or “locked” delegates, there is a very good chance that maybe 100 or even more may be “NeverTrump” supporters. What if they all just forewent their duties to vote for Trump on the 1st ballot, and voted for Kasic or Cruz instead? Trump couldn’t do a dang thing.
We only have the illusion that we are casting a ballot that actually counts for something. We are only stating our preference.
I’d much rather not have delegates. It would be much easier to do everything just off a simple majority vote. Everyone votes on convention day. It will take multiple votes, but the first to 50.01% wins. All “the peoples” votes. No delegates.
 April 12, 2016 at 8:36am
I agree with what others have said. If Donald is saying that he will surround himself with the greatest minds during his potential presidency, why is he not doing that now? Did he not have a single person on his payroll that knew about how the CO delegate selection would go down? He obviously didn’t care much about CO, and instead focused his attention to ensuring that as many liberals as possible would vote for him in NY to get above the 50% threshold to win all the delegates.
Why don’t more people talk about all those liberal votes going to Donald? If you were banned from registering to vote on election day, and were only allowed to vote how you registered……………he would not be where he is today. He would have tanked long ago. Liberals are excited for him to run against Hillary. They know Hillary will crush him. They will make him look like the worst sexist man in America. He has openly bragged about having relations with married women, and how many women he has had relations with, etc. All those comments aimed at Megan Kelly and others. He is toast.
He isn’t a real conservative. Plain and simple. He is only saying what people want to hear to further himself. How much money did he give to Hillary’s 2008 presidential run? Other liberals?
Stop whining when you loose a contest. A contest that the rules were agreed upon back in August.
The American people don’t elect the nominee. Delegates do. How the system was set up. Deal with it.
NY is a closed primary and you must be registered as a Republican prior to March 25th. So your saying all those Bernie and Hillary voters are going to change their Democratic affiliation for the primary and general just to vote for Trump? Whatever you say……. Guarantee you he will take Hillary to the woodshed!
 April 8, 2016 at 8:05am
I would have fought back against Bill’s “What are you selling us” question. I would have said, “I’m not selling anything”, “I am putting forth policies that can help you”, etc. Trump sells.
And yes, even the majority of Faux News supports Trump. They are afraid to go after him. They are afraid that if they do, they will be shut out of coverage, etc. Poor journalism. Lack of morals.
 April 1, 2016 at 7:40am
I just send this in to Hannity via his website………….
I am a relatively long time listener to your show. Whenever I am in my car from 9am to 6pm, I have either you, Beck, or Rush on the radio, depending on what time it is.
Saying that, I have to take issue with your public stance of not endorsing a candidate this primary election cycle. You say you are not endorsing Trump. You say you are not endorsing Cruz. Nor are you endorsing Kasic. That is all good and stuff, but your actions tell a different story.
I don’t have a twitter account, but you can obviously go on and view tweets. So, I just took a look at yours after reading a headline on the Blaze that stated you have been unable to book Cruz for an hour long special for the last 10 days.
You say you are not endorsing anyone, yet, all the original tweets, tweeted out by your twitter account for the last several days included something about Trump in them. That is just from what I can see anyway. Maybe because I don’t have a twitter account there are. I don’t know.
You also say that you have been unable to get Cruz or a Cruz surrogate to call in to the radio show very much. But you say that you can almost always book a Trump surrogate.
Maybe it is because Cruz, and maybe even a lot of your listeners know that you are in the bag for Trump. Why would someone want to come on your show, when they know at least behind the scenes that you are a Trump supporter?
Cruz was invited on Savage, and failed to provide the coursety of a reply.
After complaining about no media coverage to Anderson Cooper, it was revealed that Cruz had turned down multiple CNN invites.
Now Cruz turns down Hannity.
Face it, if Cruz can’t control the interview, and be rehearsed, he declines to go.
Dear Sean Hannity,
Don't let your heart be troubled, but I see through you. You are transparent, and the people see no backbone. You have become a puppet.
God Bless You and your family.
Schmiggsy, a short time listener.
Hannity has given and/or offered air time to all of the candidates. Kashich, Paul, Carson, Christie, Fiorina, Bush, et.al, have all been on his radio or tv show. Heck, he even invited Sanders to come on. Maybe he is in the tank for Trump, but it's not Hannity's fault that the other candidates won't go on his show. Like him or not, Trump is a businessman. He is funding his own campaign. As a businessman can you blame him for wanting his puss on tv every day? Can you blame him for taking advantage of the FREE air time he gets. He doesn't have to spend 100s of millions on advertising or for exposure because he already get its for nothing! The media are the ones that give him the camera or the mic. While Cruz and Kasich are hemorrhaging money, Trump is building up a the war chest he needs to face Clinton. The worst thing that can happen for a guy like Trump is to ignore him. By ignoring him, he might just go away. At the very least he might stop living rent free in everyone's head. But Trump being in this election is a ratings bonanza for the media (doesn't matter if its right or left). They're salivating waiting to hear what he says next and Trump is happy to give them all of the fodder they can handle. I would support either Cruz or Trump in the general election because they both have strong points amid many weak points that each of them possess. If I were in the Cruz' inner circle, I'd tell him to get on every media outlet possible. Just my $.02.
Simply stated, Trump is a New Yorker (like Sean) and Trump's NOT a LAWYER. Hannity's had his fill of shyster lawyers (e.g., Ted Cruz) and wants an honest open candidate; Sean doesn't want to be soiled by Lyin' Ted.
Simply stated, Cruz is ducking Hannity because Hannity calls him out on his lies. And the truth is you Cruzbots love your guy and want his lies to stand. It won’t happen on Hannity.
When your guy is being attacked by liberals, government employees, politicians of both parties, the media, GOP establishment, GOP donors, strategists and lobbyists, multi-national corporations, billionaire CEOs, world leaders, special interest groups, and yes – even the elite D.C. conservative establishment like National Review then maybe he would be more relevant.
Anyone who holds any kind of power appears willing to do anything to attack Trump, the ONLY TRUE OUTSIDER PROVEN BY WHO ALL IS ATTACKING HIM. Cruz doesn’t see any attacks because no one sees him as a threat and because he is a part of the corrupt system.
Trump is the only one that will end their gravy train and upset their apple cart. They are all scared to death and willing to do anything to stop him which means he’s best for our country.

An NCO is not an officer.
I was one, I would know.
A sergeant major is the highest NCO rank, but there are technically 3 types depending on what your duty position is and if you are in charge of anyone. Sergeant Major. Command Sergeant Major. And finally, Sergeant Major of the Army.
 July 22, 2014 at 4:40am
It is 3 years per stripe. The other side has a stripe representing each 6 months spent deployed overseas.
Do a bit of research first.
But yes. This guy is a POS.
September 17, 2013 at 2:31pm
Ummmmmmmmmm. It would help if the Blaze could review thier articles prior to publishing them.
It is not an AR-15. That would be either a Ruger Mini-14 or a Mini-30.
So, either the Blaze has it wrong, or the Congressman is a moron. But in the original tweet, he doesnt say anything about it being an AR-15, so I am left to assume it is a mistake on the Blaze’s part.
I guess we can leave it to artist's block.
In the end the congressman is a moron.
July 31, 2013 at 2:25pm
Dude got what he had comming to him. Why dont you just park closer to the curb? Would still have left him plenty of room to mitigate any door dings. People always thinking they are above everyone else by taking up two spots or parking where they shouldnt. Someone is going to get you. It woudl have been better if he wasnt in the corner spot and two cars came up on either side of him. It would have been awesome to see him have to go through the trunk to get in the drivers seat.
July 26, 2013 at 12:04pm
Why do we allow illegals in this country again? Just curious. Just boggles my mind.
And then, the Republicans are going to probably end up giving amnesty to these people?
Seriously? Is that what the conservative party had come down too?
Then there is the story of the 13 year old girl that was rapped by multiple illegals that hasnt even been brought up, or at least to national attention.
This country is going to implode one day. Utter stupidity.
SECURE THE DANG BORDER. PERIOD. END OF STORY.
Then go around and round up all the illegals and ship them back over the border with a smile.
Maybe we hook the border up with some land mines and the military with its full might.
How can we ever expect our country to be “safe” and “secure” when we just let anyone and everyone across the border?
82nd, I assume you spent some time in NC. Last night I was researching the illegal alien gang rapes and there were a shocking number in NC.
* To the wimps in Congress: they get to dream and we are stuck with the nightmares? This disgusting "dreamer" was 19 by reports and illegal.
July 22, 2013 at 3:46pm
He would actually be charged for such an action as he was not old enough to legally own or possess such a weapon. But if he WERE old enough to legally own/possess a handgun and were confronted by a person or persons or even animal, and felt his life was in danger (death or serious injury) he would be able to use deadly force with said handgun. But, seeing he couldnt even buy a shotgun from Walmart, because you have to be 18………………………..he would not be legally allowed to carry a weapon on his person. It would be different if he were at his dad’s house, his dad had a gun, and someone broke in. He could then use his dad’s firearm to ensure the safety of him and his brother.
