Some choices deserve shame. Abortion should be among them.

The rules are different for Democrats.

I know, I kept thinking, did everyone forget 2000 and Al Gore? Gore didn’t accept the election results, but they’re demanding Trump promise to do so before the election has even happened./ It’s absurd.

I suppose that depends on just how big the armed insurrection was, and like you pointed out, what proportion of the military and police sided with it.
The larger problem would be what happens after. Supposing the insurrection wins and we the people seize control of our government, what’s going to stop all the idiots out there from voting the same sort of statist big-government boneheads right back in?
Obviously I’m just talking hypothetically, but to my mind, a full-blown insurrection isn’t necessary, but rather just something that somehow smashes the corrupt link between the government power structure and the media and the education system. When generations of people are fed crap by their teachers and professors, and fed the same crap by the media, it stands to reason that they’re going to believe said crap. Smash the media and the government-controlled education and everything else should in time work itself out.

I’d like to see them crawl out of their graves and start zombie-slapping the crap out of people.
It seems to me that, even if Trump were to win, he’s so despised by both the Democrats and most congressional Republicans that he’d likely be ineffective at making any of the changes he’s promised…assuming those promises were even sincere to begin with. All it maybe accomplishes is to delay the inevitable. The way I see it, the only way to avoid the seemingly inevitable slide into tyranny and to restore our free constitutional republic and rule of law is to obliterate the Democrat cabal, and it’ll take more than ballots to accomplish that.

Even if by some miracle we can avoid Hillary winning the presidency, it won’t change anything. This Democrat cabal will eventually steamroller the entire democratic process and our Constitution. It’s just a matter of time. I’m with Sheriff David Clarke, I think it’s pitchfork and torches time in America.
exactly and the timing on this should make one very suspicious of what's going on with our tyrannical government !
Talk to the people who were caught in the traffic jams, and then get back to me.
The reports I've seen state that Christie was informed 3 days after the fact...so, he did not request it, cause it, suggest it...or have anything to do with it.
The only "tangible" damage done by this event...happened long before Christie had any control over it.
So get over it lefties...
Clinton was investigated 9 times (once by the FBI). I don't see how investigating Christie is a bad thing...
To the Left, diverting a bit of traffic to make a point is "bridgegate"....yet "nothing to see here" when mentioning Chappaquiddick (for those too young to remember Chappauiddick, just Google it and see about the (alleged) death of a poor woman at the hands of a young Teddy Kennedy (DUI? much?).
The trick with being corrupt is that you don't attach your name to anything that can be proved in court. Christie flew a little too close to the sun letting his close aides run this stupid bridge scheme. He should've taken some lessons from Hillary first

Who cares, corruption is so yesterday. But did she ever say anything lewd? That’s the burning question!
OMG!!! This epitomizes this idiocy perfectly, great comment! So sick of this horse crap, I've completely tuned out and don't believe any polls, any news outlet, ANYONE! Wasn't a huge Trump fan but I burn for him to win this thing just to purge all of these CRIMINALS and their ENABLERS! Couldn't care less about what he says, she's actually committed crimes and she's just foul!
"None of the emails obtained by ABC News show any direct involvement by either Bill or Hillary Clinton." Well if that's the case there's no problem. Now that the daily quota of a single story that makes Hillary look bad has occurred, let's get back to suppressing GOP vote.
but Hillary breaking Federal Law now thats....well, yesterday too....
The Smoking Gun — a personal email server containing over 100 classified emails. This should have been all the evidence needed to send her to prison. Full stop.
We know she screwed Webster Hubble at least once.
I think we're all waiting for those "Oh, Huma!" tapes to come out of hiding....going to be a long wait.
HOWEVER - Glenn thinks that voting for HILLARY is the "ETHICAL" Thing to do --
Vince recorded her, but only once.
Dear Jon Street---"None of the emails obtained by ABC News show any direct involvement by either Bill or Hillary Clinton". No and they won't because writers like you don't want to look any further until she wins.
The seriousness of the charges warrant an investigation.

Oh good lord, then let’s just go ahead and call any sexual advancement or contact sexual assault. Last time I checked, most people aren’t able to read minds. So that being the case, whether or not a woman lets a man do something is the signal as to whether or not she consents to that act. A woman letting a man do something would be that implicit consent you mention. We used to say “no means no” but apparently now women don’t even bear the responsibility of making an effort to say no. All they have to do is THINK no and that makes it assault.

And stop with the sexual assault BS. His comments may have been lewd and crass, but nowhere did he advocate sexual assault. The entire context of his comments were “if you’re famous, women will let you do anything.”
Let’s examine, shall we.
“I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it,”
We all know what that means, he made a move and was rejected. Not sexual assault.
““I moved on her like a *****, but I couldn’t get there.”
Again, he made a move on her and was rejected.
“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want?”
“Grab them by the *****. You can do anything.”
Notice that he says “they let you do it”. In other words, they consent. Not sexual assault. Now, if you want to suggest that Trump’s assertion that women will let rich, famous men do anything is sexist, fine. If you can find a quote of Trump saying who cares if they let you, do it anyhow, then fine, show it. But nowhere in a discussion of what women will LET you do if you’re rich and famous is any implication of sexual assault.
Finally, I find it amusing that for months now everyone’s been saying that Trump is just a rambling blowhard that spouts off crap with no basis in reality, but all of the sudden THIS is DIFFERENT.
Don't worry Balthy-boy, worse is being released shortly. Save the apology for that.
What kind of excuse are you fabricating, this woman was a friend of trump and married and if you took the time to read this wasn't anything new for trump he enjoyed going after friends wives. A beaut of a guy. Since most women would be ashamed they would not tell anyone. Remember trump likes to brag he is a billionair and enjoys suing people.

If you’re offended, then by all means feel free to leave.
 October 11, 2016 at 3:22pm
I see you were distributed some new talking points to mindlessly parrot.

I just love how they’re spinning all these comments now as advocating sexual assault. Just having Trump saying crass things isn’t enough, they need to fluff them up into sexual assault. But it’s all phony. The entire context of his comments were “if you’re famous, they let you do anything.” If a woman lets a man do something, then by definition it’s not sexual assault.
It's the evolution of "words hurt." When does it stop? In a couple years if you fart, it's going to be called genocide.
If a man uses his attraction to a woman as the only basis for that behavior--forget having a relationship with her or even asking first if he can "just start kissing" her or worse still, grab her--it doesn't matter if she lets you. Allowing it to happen doesn't mean she wanted it to happen. Women are afraid of men who act like that, and if the man is rich and famous then he's doubly frightening. "Will this situation get worse if I try to make him stop?" is undoubtedly on any woman's mind when a man makes unwanted advances. If consent, either implicitly or explicitly given, does not happen first, then the man has no right to violate a woman like that regardless of whether he thinks she's "letting" him or not.
I love how conservatives spent years talking about how Obama's weak words matter......Now they same people are claiming words dont matter.
The woman he was slobbering over was married, he was also married to his current wife who was also PREGNANT with his son at the time. This is more than ” saying some bad words”. He’s a disgusting lecherous dirtbag. Good job Trumpetts. You handed Witch Hillary the election on a silver platter.

Not sure what’s here to down-thumb. If a woman lets a man grab her crotch, then she’s consenting to have her crotch grabbed, in which case it’s clearly not a sexual assault. If she does not let the man grab her crotch but he does so anyhow, then it’s a sexual assault. Key word there is “lets”. If a woman lets a man have sex with her, is it a rape? Words mean things, or are we just going to say that any sexual contact is assault now, consensual or not?
October 11, 2016 at 11:23am
If the woman lets the man grab her crotch, which is what Trump said, then no it’s not sexual assault.

Actually I could only make it a paragraph in before the stupid was just too much to handle.
And I can definitely appreciate the irony of taking the time to comment on people’s inexplicable adoration of some nobody in a red sweater. But I can’t help but think that anyone who’s takeaway from that debate was a nobody in a red sweater is probably someone who’d be best staying home to keep up with the Kardashians on November 8th.

What I wonder is why the Republicans agree to show up for debates with these liberal moderators. If a Democrat was invited to a debate moderated by Sean Hannity they’d whine so loud it would be heard clear across the galaxy. But when Republicans are to debate with liberal moderators they just go duh, okay.

Internet sensation? Maybe to a whole lot of sad, lonely people with nothing better to do with their lives.
...says the guy clicking on the story, reading it in full and then making a point of commenting something negative about it. Lighten up Debbie Downer.
Clintons cause staffer to make suicide attempt.
Like we sad lonely people here hoping on hope that Glenn will look out at us through his magic mirror and say I see Balthazor and MindtheGOP and Betterinformed and theres little chuckie stein. Such a happy place.
Ain't it Great!? or Ain't it Great Again ?
Yep, the person who I want to depend on for information is one who has not yet made up his mind as to who to vote for.
