    I had no idea Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was a master in Tai Kwan Leap and would be so selfless to honor Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning by teaching him so much Tai Kwan Leap so quickly…. *boot to the head*

    Many people in this nation judge the legitimacy of your argument based on the amount of moral authority that they perceive you possess. Those in power and in politics know this and use it to their advantage. These same people will seize on anything they can, no matter how small and insignificant, and use it against you to reduce or eliminate any moral authority that you may have.

    I think that Martin Luther King understood this. This is evidenced by how he conducted his protests. In order to be allowed to march with him people had to agree to a set of standards of behavior that included reading their scriptures, praying, loving their enemies, turning the other cheek, and never under any circumstances stepping out of the marching line even when attacked. He knew that even the slightest missteps would be used as an excuse to invalidate everything they were trying to accomplish.

    While I agree that you have every right to carry your weapon in public, I would admonish you to first know EXACTLY your local laws as it relates to open carry and interaction with the police. Be respectful and humble. And when your rights are violated refuse to comply and then take any abuse that is thrown at you. If you do this the right way the moral authority of our cause will grow beyond anything you can imagine.

    Then the day may again come where you can walk the streets with your weapon on your hip or in the crook of your arm and not be harassed, assaulted, or violated.

    Is this what passes for courage in our government these days? We have the executive branch of government breaking the law and basically telling congress to go f themselves and what we get from the senate is little wimpy Senator Lindsey Graham to afraid to do anything about it except to mutter about possibly doing something next time. Yeah right, Lindsey, you so tough! You fraud! You coward! I know exactly what you are: pathetic.

    So what is the plan to actually achieve the 30% reduction? I am sick of politicians calling a goal a plan. Just requiring power plants to cut emissions isn’t a plan either. How are these power plants ACTUALLY going to do it and how is it going to be paid for?

    I want Officer Dale to come to my home town and be my police chief. He gave me a little hope that there are still some honorable officers of the peace who know, understand, and uphold their oaths. Also, good on this group and TheBlaze for having the integrity to show the good with the bad.

    My mind could not help but associate the screams of this woman with a vision of our future. In this future the “good citizens”, those who supported the limitless growth in the size and power of the federal government without so much as a whimper, now wail and scream with confusion in their voices, “But, I didn’t do anything wrong! I have nothing to hide! I am one of you! Noooo! I didn’t do anything wrong!” Their desperate and hysterical screams fall on the uncaring ears of a militarized police force for which this is just another day among many days prior. These law keepers are merely doing their duty to protect the state from the those deemed dangerous by behavioral algorithms designed by secret government agencies. These agencies are tasked with running deep analytics against historical communications in order to produce degree of interest models on all citizens. By connecting dots using probabilities, circumstantial evidence, innuendo, and paranoia citizens are convicted of crimes and future crimes based on a house of cards. Those who once had nothing to hide are put against walls and summarily executed by an all powerful and all paranoid state.

    It is true that this future has not come to pass. But this future is becoming more and more likely. For this reason I found the cries of the woman in this story disturbing. When a society trades liberty for safety to often such cries are inevitable, as is the fate of the good intentioned followers.

    The linked story said, “Boguslawski works in Indiana at a training facility for Navy Seals…”

    That is kind of an important detail don’t you think? Why was that left off of this story at theBlaze?

    Juan, here is the difference. Phil Robertson expressed his opinion about homosexuality without advocating for any action to be taken against gays. Martin Bashir, on the other hand, advocated that Sarah Palin be whipped, tortured, her mouth defecated in, and her eyes urinated on. You see the difference Juan? The moment Martin Bashir advocated that something be done to punish someone he disagrees with is the moment his comments turned into hatred. Phil Robertson did not, in any way, advocate for anything to be done against homosexuals. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE… JAUN? DO YOU? Now, had Phil Robertson suggested we grab torches and pitch forks and burn down the homes of gay people, well, that would be hate speech. But he didn’t. Did he? No, he didn’t. NO, HE DIDN’T.

    Jaun, it is you that can’t have it both ways. One is hate speech, the other is harmless opinion.

    Secondly, Martin Bashir advocated for hateful action on his show, on MSNBC, with a prepared and premeditated script, without anyone stirring him to do so. Phil Robertson expressed his personal religious opinion, without advocating for hateful action of any kind, when asked direct questions during an interview for GQ magazine, which has nothing to do with A&E.

    Wasn’t it the Chiefs that had a very similar chance just a week ago in Denver right before the end of the first half with no time left on the clock and because Denver put someone back to potentially return the kick the Chiefs wussed out and kneeled the ball?! I was so let down when they didn’t even try. It is so much sweeter now that Denver had the guts to try and broke a 40+ year old record.

    This mans conviction by a Texas jury is just more proof that Texas is an progressive cesspool filled with liberty hating statists. What a shameful state. What an embarrassment.

    I saw the arresting officer lie multiple times to his sargent about telling the man he was going to remove his weapon. His lies are unbecoming an officer of the peace and for that alone he should be fired. He should then be tried for excessive force for disarming a man that no reasonable person would feel threatened by. The officer and his sargent should both be tried and convicted for failure to act against the person making the false call to the police department.

    I still don’t understand why he was arrested for disorderly conduct. His arrest alone should be grounds for a major lawsuit. The school not releasing his children should be prosecuted as unlawful detainment or kidnapping.

    Now the Blaze is suddenly naive about how politics are played in Washington DC? This isn’t an example of McConnell being unjustly blamed. This is an example of how you bring a two billon dollar kickback to your state without looking dirty. Of course two other senators wrote an inserted the kickback into the bill. THAT IS HOW IT IS DONE. This is simple plausible deniability and is done as a matter of course in DC.

    There is no great revelation in this news story from the Blaze. Stories like this make me question if I can really trust the Blaze.

    This is all it takes for the lazy entitled welfare state to riot and kill. What will it take for the hard working tax paying producers to do likewise?

    Senator Corker has shown he believes the American people are to stupid to understand why voting against cloture on this bill isn’t a vote against the bill. I have news for you Senator Corker, not only do we fully understand why voting against cloture prevents Senator Reid from amending the bill to refund Obamacare we also fully understand that you, Sir, are a coward and a neo-statist who wants to exert power and dominion over the people through giant government centralized health care.

    Nancy Mace,

    In this interview you kept saying, “Do we trust this government…?”

    No I do not trust THIS government. But I am worried that you do not understand that it is critically important to the preservation of our Liberty to NEVER trust ANY government. There is no government now, or ever, that we can trust to not seize as much power as possible. The natural inclination of government is to grow in size and power and threaten the Liberty of the people.

    Do you understand this Nancy? Then start articulating it!

    The constitution DOES NOT, REPEAT, DOES NOT make any provision for violating the rights reserved to the citizens by putting in place governmental oversight. THAT IS A COMPLETE LIE.

    She became dead to me a few weeks ago when she publicly condemned Snowden. She has shown that she values safety over liberty and that is the true debate. She is not the representative we thought she was. She is an enemy to freedom because her fear is greater than her love of Liberty. She is a coward.

    I am disappointed to tears.

    The freedom movement MUST cast her aside and all like her. When it comes to the natural rights of mankind there can be no compromise.

    Throughout this whole thing I have learned a great lesson; that vast numbers of Americans are willing to ignore the truth, ignore facts, evidence, and reality to suit their individual narratives. Call me naive but I always viewed Americans as fundamentally good. I always believed that when faced with the truth that Americans would choose truth over darkness. Maybe most of America still chose truth and light. But it has shocked and saddened me to realize that a really large portion of America will knowingly and willfully chose lies and darkness.

    Some people will forever believe that Zimmerman, with evil in his heart, hunted down and killed a child in cold blood. They will forever choose to be blind to the truth no matter how confronted thereby.

    More and more Americans are conditioned with a narrative of anti-reality so deeply that they will thrash and rail and blind themselves so as not to face the truth. I am disturbed by this. It is a different kind of slavery, but equally controlling.

    Glenn always says, “The truth has no agenda.” I would add to that, “…the wicked take the truth to be hard.”

    This is two progressive statists having a fake fight for media attention. Because McConnell has been ******* off the liberty movement he and Reid plan this little spat so both of them can look like they are really fighting for their party. McConnell needs this the most of the two.

    …and the media laps it up.

    There will be no nuclear option invoked. Mark my words.

    Glenn Beck needs to stop giving police officers the benefit of the doubt. He always says they have a difficult job that he would never do. Well, Glenn, they have a difficult job because our constitution ties their hands; and it MUST tie their hands if the individual is to remain free. When you give them the benefit of the doubt you open the door for abuse of power and infringement of civil liberties.

    Or constitution gives the citizen the benefit of the doubt; it errors on the side of the citizen and puts the burden on the State. You should to Glenn. Go ahead and heap praise and respect on our law enforcement for doing a difficult job. BUT DO NOT unburden them from their constitutional constraints by trusting them with the benefit of the doubt.
