    On the one hand the far right complains about the surveillance state, Patriot Acts I, II, & III, NSA data mining, killer drones on US soil, police armed with battlefield grade weaponry and Ms. Bachmann thinks these guys will just go back to American and no one will notice.

    I’ll give you three: Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan

    I can’t believe people are taking this tripe seriously even the liberal sites have picked up Mr. Beck’s prediction.Forget the fact that this is coming from the man who couldn’t even predict the last election which was essentially a no brainer, Mr. Beck doesn’t actually give the real reason Mrs. Clinton will be president and it has nothing to do with her campaign strategy.

    The fact of the matter is that the GOP candidates who can actually beat Mrs. Clinton either will not run or will not make it past Super Tuesday 2016 (March 1) so Republicans will be left with the trail mix of Mr. Paul, Mr. Cruz, or Mr. Huckabee.

    As usual there a logical disconnect in Mr. Beck’s argument.

    Again, I often have difficulty following Mr. Beck’s ramblings, but if I understand correctly Mrs. Clinton will win because she’ll be talking about the how great things were in the past.

    At the same time the GOP doesn’t stand a chance because “It’s all about the past, past, past. Where is the vision for the future?”

    That doesn’t make a lick of sense.

    @US Navy EOD Vet

    Thanks for CV summary, but I am well aware of Mr. Cruz’s credentials. Btw, I am not questioning his intelligence I am questioning the intelligence of people who think that anything he is saying should be taken seriously.

    He pretty much discredited himself after the government shutdown fiasco and more importantly , he has zero serious policy proposals.

    You can look at Paul Ryan or Scott Walker or even Mitt Romney all have some bold proposals wrt to universal healthcare coverage , the future of Medicare (ironically its essentially an Obamacare scheme), war on poverty, union collective bargaining.

    Agree with these or not, people have debated these proposals and they have been written about in the so called “librul msm”.

    What has Mr. Cruz proposed?

    Well here it is….

    Wow that’s impressive!

    Mr. Cruz just panders to the extreme right wing. Ironically many on the hard right don’t even believe he can legally be POTUS.

    Mr. Cruz is what stupid people think a brilliant person sounds like.

    Oops, I meant founding.

    Hey Blaze writers,

    What do you call it when you completely lack self-awareness? As in being the last media outlet to be in any position to criticize the spelling malfunctions of others.

    How about, insensible, oblivious, unaware, unconscious, unmindful, or unwitting.

  • [-2] August 28, 2014 at 6:17pm

    This is America damn it!

    If Americans can’t behave in a rude and obnoxious manner toward fellow Americans then you’ve lost your most essential freedom.

    The foundering fathers are spinning and veterans are shedding tears.

    What a twit!

    I guess Mr. Ailes wasn’t too pleased about Ms. Kelley taking the wrong side in the whole “white privilege” argument so she had to come out which some drummed senseless diatribe.

    Americans have already died at the hands of ISIS Mr. Foley is just the latest example, another American, Steven Sotloff, is still being held and may already be dead.

    I suppose it’s news to Ms. Kelley that the POTUS requires congressional approval to engage on a larger scale in Syria, as everyone knows that will never happen. As far as Iraq, the air campaign has been fairly effective and the American people do not want to ever put boots on the ground (in combat) again.

    As far as the whole Obama on vacation meme…
    According to CBS News Correspondent Mark Knoller, President Obama has spent 129 days of presidency on vacation. The Republican led House of Representatives was scheduled to be in session for only 124 days in all of 2014. This means that John Boehner and company will spend fewer days at work this year than President Obama has spent on vacation in his entire presidency. The numbers are actually worse when one considers that the House is only scheduled to work for 97 days between January and Election day in November. Members of the Senate, like Ted Cruz, have had nearly as many days off this year as the president has had since taking office.

    Number of vacation days taken by recent two term presidents…
    Bush: 490, Reagan: 349, Clinton: 174, Obama: 138 as of 8/22/14

    I suppose anything is within the realm of possibility.

    For example its possible Mr. Perry will remember all the government agencies the wants to eliminate (this time around).

    Dude,

    I did not weigh in on the question of whether Mr. Wilson was justified in shooting Mr. Brown. That’s for the courts to decide.

    I am just saying that I never for a second believed the initial orbital fracture story, first published by the Gateway Pundit and then by FNC. In fact when FNC picked up the story I pretty much knew for certain that it was a false.

    And since you brought up the question of justification for shooting Mr. Brown, if this does in fact go trial Mr. Wilson will surely be acquitted since convicting Mr. Wilson under Missouri law is basically impossible.

    As long as there is a modicum of evidence and reasonable plausibility in support of a self-defense claim, a court must accept the claim and acquit the accused. The prosecution must not only prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime, but also disprove a defendant’s claim of self-defense to the same high standard. Mr. Wilson only needs to produce some evidence (his own testimony counts) supporting the self-defense claim. Once he does so, any reasonable doubt on the issue requires a finding for the defendant.

  • August 22, 2014 at 12:26pm

    Of course there was no truth to this.

    The story first appeared on the Gateway Pundit (Jim Hoft) site, a blog well known will purposely misleading their readers and of course FNC which is so factually challenged that it should probably run factual correction credits after very show (ala the SNL skit).

    The mistake Mr. Elder and you make in your reasoning is the following – Because there are many successful/middle class black people therefore racism is no longer an issue in America.

    I guarantee that many of these successful people have been followed while shopping, and most needed to have a serious conversation with their children about how to behave (and what to wear) when out in public so as to not attract attention of law enforcement.

    And another thing, no one is suggesting these comments, in and of themselves, are preventing black people from being successful, they are nevertheless a reflection of beliefs and attitudes still firmly held in America today.

    Obviously Mr. Elder doesn’t read The Blaze comments section.

    This is well beyond water carrying.
    Mr. Darcy is so far up Mr. Perry’s ars here, we may never hear from him again.

    The piece de resistance is the line “conservative firebrand”.
    Mr. Perry is many things, but “conservative firebrand” is not one of them.

    Recall..

    “If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart.”

    Good point!
    Wonder if Mr. Hewitt ever appeared as a paid contributor on FNC.

    @Rjj

    Yes the big bad US government is forcing these poor helpless corporations to add $11b to their top line.

    Oh the humanity!

  • [2] August 12, 2014 at 4:12pm

    This is small potatoes compared to an $11 billion dollar arms sale.

    Perhaps Mr. Hewitt should host the CEOs of Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon and ask them why they are selling Qatar $11 B worth of Apache helicopters, Patriots missiles, and the so called Javelin Defense System

    Mr. Hewitt can then ask each of them them how American corporations can do business with a state which funds ISIS and Hamas .

    Not sure why Mr. Lucas would find anything Ms. McCarthy said actually newsworthy.

    Not a single reputable scientific body rejects the idea that climate change is manmade. Hitting that fact home is a recent survey of over 12,000 peer-reviewed climate science papers, of which over 97% endorsed the idea that climate change is caused by man.
