    (Continued)

    And though I support Cruz, I do worry about where he really stands on LEGAL immigration. I believe that he would fight illegal immigration, but he has been pretty squishy on legal immigration, which is just as much a part of the problem as the illegals. I am also concerned about his wife’s connection to the CFR-sponsored North American Union. Those two things just don’t seem consistent with his overall conservative foundation, and they give me pause.

    Regardless, I would unreservedly support Trump or Cruz over Hillary. If either were to win and all they accomplished was to fix the immigration mess, they would have accomplished the single most important thing necessary to stop the current decline. Ann Coulter is right when she says that if we don’t regain control of immigration, nothing else will matter because we will be overrun with third world inhabitants who care not a whit about American principles. That’s the single most important factor in this election, and Trump has made it crystal clear where he stands and Cruz has as well, though admittedly less convincingly when it comes to legal immigration.

    So, I think either will get the job done on the most critical present day issue. Trump, however, comes with significant risk as it pertains to what he would do on other issues, and Cruz (while far more solid overall) worries me when it comes to legal immigration and trade.

    That said, either would be infinitely better than Hillary.

    The circular firing squad that has arisen in conservative circles over this election is ridiculous and has to stop if we truly care about saving the country. Read many of the comments here and elsewhere, and you can scarcely tell the difference between them and the type of vulgar drivel routinely spouted by liberals. It’s embarrassing folks. We’re better than this. We’re supposed to be the side that bases our arguments upon reason, facts, and principles, remember?

    Now, my take on the whole situation is this: I have supported Ted Cruz all along because I believed that he offered the best choice of a strong conservative who understands America’s founding principles, and who is willing to defy the GOP establishment in order to re-establish those principles. However, that doesn’t mean that I believe that Donald Trump is some type of demonic Hitler figure who would destroy the Republic if elected. Quite the contrary.

    I think Trump, while certainly lacking a coherent philosophical foundation, is nonetheless sincere in his concern about the current direction of the country and his desire to “make America great again.” While I cringe at times at his crassness during debates and public appearances (but also laugh sometimes), in every one-on-one interview I have seen he has come across as entirely sincere. I think he really is in this for the right reasons, though he is certainly a risky proposition.

    That’s also exactly why Bill Clinton’s lying about his dalliances with Monica Lewinsky (among others) wasn’t “just about sex.” He put himself in a position to be blackmailed by foreign entities, which made it a very serious matter as opposed to the trivial nothing that the left tried to portray it as.

    Finally, an explanation for what we’re enduring that makes sense!

    Kathleen, you are obviously someone who thinks deeply about these things rather than just parroting politically-correct bumper sticker slogans. I certainly pray that God will continue to comfort you with respect to your past, and will continue to draw you closer to Him. We all certainly need that.

    With all due respect, though, I have to take exception to your statement that “…we all have the right to be a mother or a father regardless of sin, God, The Bible, The devil or society.” Your particular choice of sexual relationship is incapable of producing children. In fact, if homosexual relationships are just as “normal” and laudable as heterosexual relationships, as many try to claim, then why should anyone care if everyone was homosexual, right? But if that hypothetical actually occurred, there would be no children and the human race would be extinguished, so there could certainly be no homosexual “parents”, because there would no longer be any children.

    And in that lies the perversity of the notion of homosexual “parenthood.” Homosexuals either have to adopt children produced by natural male-female couples, or they must contradict their claim that homosexuality is just as natural as heterosexuality by at least temporarily entering into heterosexual relationships to produce a child. Can you not see from this simple logic that portraying homosexual parents as if they were no different from heterosexual parents is a blatant lie?

    It is impossible for them to get married, if by “married” you mean to another of the same sex. They are trying to redefine marriage by pretending that a counterfeit facsimile of it is the real thing. It is also impossible to “transition” from a man to a woman, or vice-versa. Mutilating ones genitals and taking hormones is merely a crude attempt at imitation that cannot change their predetermined genetics.

    All of this “stuff” is the product of mental illness and severe confusion. To lend it a veneer of credibility just so that we don’t get called a name does a deep disservice to those so afflicted.

    Universal truth has never and never will be subject to the whims of public opinion. Public opinion has many, many times throughout history been in favor of things that were later realized to be wrong, immoral, or outright evil. Human nature tends naturally to push us toward favoring any policy that would give license to our selfish desires. In this case, I think polls are also influenced by decades of relentless PC propaganda pushing people to agree simply to avoid being labeled a “bigot” or “homophobe.”

    What is true and right is true and right regardless of our opinion about it.

  • March 19, 2015 at 7:17pm

    I was with you right up until the last few words. Everyone is redeemable, we have all sinned in some way, and though homosexuality is certainly reprehensible to God, it does not mean that the person involved in it is “…done with Him for good.”

  • [8] March 19, 2015 at 6:55pm

    I’m really tired of seeing those of us who have not had our minds corrupted by PC nonsense subtly acquiescing to the homosexual agenda by using the term “traditional marriage.” To use that term is to unintentionally reinforce the homosexual notion that there are various forms of marriage, with “traditional marriage” simply being one of many.

    The truth, of course, is that marriage is not simply a “tradition” and it is not open to liberal redefinition. The fact that we are even discussing a notion so patently absurd as “gay marriage” is a clear indication of how far we have fallen. While I know that deluded liberals will sneer at any suggestion that there is a God-ordained order to male-female relationships and that marriage is instituted by God for a specific purpose, they cannot ignore simple biology. Again, it is ridiculous that anyone even needs to point this out, but the biological differences plainly obvious to us all argue conclusively against the insane notion of homosexual “marriage.”

    Marriage is what it is and what it always has been, a life-long commitment between a man and a woman. Everyone has equal access to it already. What they do not have, however, is the right to redefine the term.

    Sorry to be the one to tell you this, but as your dung emits planet-killing “greenhouse gases”, you will have to turn that in as well. Fortunately, I know an address on Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C. where you can send it. They do produce copious quantities of excrement themselves, but if anyone knows dung it would be them.

    Yep, completely normal. Also, though the clouds can look dramatic here (partially due to the fact that visibility is always so good here you can actually see them coming), tornadoes in the Denver area are nearly always very weak. I’ve seen some, particularly in the mid to late ’80s, that looked so dramatic you would swear they had to be F5s, yet they were F1s at best. Now once the storms have moved into Kansas or Nebraska and had hundreds of miles to strengthen, that’ same different story altogether.

    It sounds like Rand Paul is falling for the typical Establishment GOP lie: “We must compromise our principles because to do otherwise would upset the electorate and then they won’t vote for us.”

    The problem with that theory is that if it is true that Americans just want more and more liberalism then we are doomed, and there is little to be gained by telling the stupid and evil among us what they want to hear in order to simply hang on to power a little longer. Plus, there is the fact that voters who are liberal (sorry, “moderate”) are not going to vote for “liberal lite” but instead will vote for the real thing (liberal dems) every time.

    But I don’t believe that the country is majority liberal (yet). I think it is still marginally majority conservative, but is waiting for leaders with the courage to stand for something. The Republicans need to cast Karl Rove and his ilk aside and assemble an unapologetically conservative platform. They then need to grow spines and start communicating those conservative principles and FIGHTING for them. No apologies, no half-liberal bones thrown to the mush-headed among us, nothing but pure undisputed TRUTH.

    Whatever happened to “I might disagree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it?” I understand Glenn’s concern, but the issue here is not Mr. Bundy’s opinions about race. That’s a red herring that the media are now trying to play up to distract from the real issue, and unfortunately Glenn is helping them make it a distraction.

    The real issue is the government’s appalling behavior, from armed threats, to destruction of property, to “free speech” zones. Mr. Bundy’s personal opinions about race, the weather, or the probability of life on other planets are wholly irrelevant to the central, very important issue of government thuggery. If Glenn and the Blaze stand for the truth as claimed (and I am confident that they do), it is important to make this distinction rather than letting an unrelated comment scare them away from the whole matter. That’s what the devious media are hoping will happen.

    Also, the full context of Mr. Bundy’s comments has been revealed today, and while his choice of words is still inelegant, it sheds a very different light on his intent. Regardless, I don’t care. What I care about is an out of control government that has militarized virtually every department within it and sees nothing wrong with threatening lethal force to collect a bill. Whether their latest victim is a racist, 9-11 truther, or thinks we faked the moon landing has exactly ZERO bearing on the propriety of the government’ sanction. Focus people, fo

    Those here who are trying to justify abortion are no different from “progressives” (and indeed probably are progressives). Let’s just cut through the nonsensical rationalizations (it’s a “choice”, the government can’t tell the mother what to do with “her body”, etc.). Be honest: The real reason you are for abortion (I know, “choice”) is that you want to engage in any behavior you happen to desire, and to do it without consequences. That’s the common denominator underlying virtually every progressive social policy.

    I also have a question for the progressives here: If abortion is OK because “the woman can do what she wants with her body”, then why couldn’t a conjoined twin decide that his sibling was inconvenient (of course I meant to say why couldn’t he make a “difficult and deeply personal choice”), and just kill his twin?

    First of all, I find it strange that you label those of us who believe in protecting innocent life “RINOs.” The actual RINOs are generally pro-abortion, among their other failings.

    We are true Conservatives. Conservatism involves protecting and preserving (“conserving”) what is good and just within society. Therefore, what could possibly be more appropriately conservative than protecting the God-given right of innocent, defenseless children to enjoy life without having it selfishly snuffed out by a mother who finds them to be “inconvenient?”

    And don’t start with the “it’s my body” nonsense. The developing child is not a part of the mother’s body at all. The baby has it’s own independent blood supply and its own blood type. It is dependent upon the mother’s body, but is not part of it. Also, since most of the genetic material comes from the father, where are those crying for the “right” of the father to determine what to do with “his body?” Mull that one over a while.

    The bottom line is that the mother has a choice, and that choice is whether to engage in sexual activity or not. Once she has made that choice in the affirmative, she shouldn’t get a “do-over” by murdering the resulting child. That’s simply barbaric and the pinnacle of self-centeredness. And to this so-called “Christian” running Planned Parenthood, all I can say is that she had better read what God thinks about putting your own desires first, while she still has time to

    DeavonReye:

    Expose it to whom? That’s my point. There is such a massive group-think occurring in academia, media, and society at large these days, particularly with respect to the climate question, that it is impossible to break through the nonsense. Add the fact that the very livelihoods of so many depend upon perpetuating the myth, and you have a recipe for willful mass delusion.

    Think about it: What would happen if it were proven that “global warming” is not really occurring or is at least a natural phenomenon that human activities have no significant bearing upon? Entire industries, governmental departments, and political careers would crumble or at least diminish. So many careers and governmental empires have been built upon this theory that there is now no turning back, no matter what the facts actually are.

    Why would you think research scientists, receiving their incomes from these same politically-driven agencies, would be motivated by anything different? In the rare cases where someone does attempt to stand for the truth, they are ostracized and have their careers destroyed. We saw that clearly demonstrated by the scheming that was occurring in the East Anglia Climate Research Unit emails. That was proof positive of corruption, yet the media ignored it and governments moved ahead as if nothing had happened.

    What a well-reasoned response /s. Regardless of whether you accept it or not, every word of my post is true. My friend has witnessed rampant corruption within the academy as well as government research facilities, such as NCAR and NREL, driven by the need to continue to receive research funding.

    It’s no secret that if you are a research scientist who wishes to continue to eat, your self-interest will be much better served by proposing to study why or how “global warming” or “climate change” is occurring, than trying to study why it is not. The research grant pipeline flows from the federal government and is thus highly politicized. That’s a fact.

    Similarly, there is no funding available to anyone who proposes to study any other than a materialistic explanation for the origin of life. Is it any wonder, therefore, that we see so many people positing the “politically correct” theories upon which their livelihood depends?

    It’s funny, liberals would immediately sneer at a study that was funded by oil companies and concluded that there was no need for alarm over “climate change”, but will swallow without questioning a study that reaches contrary conclusions but which is funded by federal agencies that have everything to gain from that result.

    In the former case they scream “corruption”, but in the latter it’s just “settled science” and we should all just move along. Libs are nothing if not the ultimate hypocrites.
