No one is responsible for another person taking their own life. If you decide to commit suicide and carry it out in whatever fashion, no one else is to blame.

There always is a massive amount of anti-catholic sentiment on the The Blaze. As a Catholic, I find it very disturbing and disappointing.

Wow! I watched the whole thing and I think the Loudens missed an incredible opportunity to show the Tea Party in a great light. The whole angles are scary thing was news to me. I think the Loudens did a lot of harm to conservatives in general. I agree with Rush, they should be an academy to work with conservatives who want to be on TV.
With that said – what is happening that a threesome is presented as normative. Where are our Christian leaders in he US. Lord, bring us the next Billy Graham.
What if we are not Christian? Why should you have authority to force non-Christians to live by Christian morality?
"Why should you have authority to force non-Christians to live by Christian morality?"
Could you specify what the Christian morality, in your opinion, consists of in particular?
And what particularly you don't like?
"Neither shalt thou commit adultery" is probably what you hate at most...

To The Blaze Editors: As a Catholic I find your post on Pope Francis riddled with anti-catholic bigotry and agenda driven. It is also very distressing to see the majority of commenters holding bigoted views on Catholicism and this Pope. You’ve been putting out there that the Pope “may” be a socialist, a supporter of gay marriage and on and on. I have forwarded these post to many of my Catholic family and friends who find what The Blaze is doing very distressing because they are all lies.
If the truth has no agenda, I would like to see a post from the editors of The Blaze as to why you are creating “suspicions” and no facts around Pope Francis. And I would like you to be aware that you are alienating your Catholic audience. I’m surprised, Glenn, as a former Catholic isn’t more sensitive to this issue.
You are right. I am about at the point of not reading The Blaze anymore. It is not only how they have reported on Pope Francis, but it is all the anti-Catholic posts. In a time when we should be united as Christians and Conservatives, I find the comments very disturbing. Thank you for your post.
As an ex catholic I am glad they are exposing the false prophet and the cult of Roman Catholicism with all the Mary worship. It is called idolatry and is an abomination in God's eyes. My friend and ex catholic Mike G. identified quickly. He said "Within minutes after appearing for the first time to hundreds of thousands of Catholics in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope, announced that he would be praying to Mary for the protection of Rome. Not once did he mention the name above all names, the name of Jesus. The Vatican released this statement about his first official act: "Francis began his first day as pope with a visit to a Roman basilica dedicated to the Virgin Mary and prayed before an icon of the Madonna." No one must have told him that praying to anyone other than God is forbidden by the Word of God (Ex. 20:4; 1 Tim. 2:5).
Spot on with that analysis. When are you catholics going to realize you being duped.
Repent and trust in Jesus alone before it is too late. Once you die there is no purgatory and no praying or paying to get to heaven.
As a former Catholic I find your comment hilarious. The Blaze never said he was a socialist so you must not be a regular to this site nor a Glenn Beck fan. And as a former Catholic you should know that the liberal social justice crusaders have taken hold of your church. Why don't you be angry at the church for allowing Pelosi and Biden take communion?
What do you expect from a website that panders to right wing fringe conspiracy theorist morons?
Get used to it. The Blaze writers do the same thing to Judaism.
A good example is e recent story is a story they did about a an Israeli Rabbi who they claimed “Created” a blessing for “King” Obama to be recited if one saw him in person during his visit.
Rabbi Yosef did not create this blessing, it goes back to biblical times.
Judea was more often than not under the rule of foreign kings.
The full blessing for seeing a king or head of state is…
Blessed are you Lord our God King of the Universe who has given of His glory (not dignity) to flesh and blood.
Many tried to correct the story in the comments to no avail.
The whole idea that ‘The truth lives here” is a joke. The truth may own a time share here which it visits a couple of times a year but it certainly is not a full time resident.
Or put another way - The Blaze is to truth is what Fox News is to News.
This has become a site for the nasty people to post. For anyone who finds Catholic posts hilarious, you are not worth responding to.
I can understand the defensiveness, that catholics are displaying, here. The truth actually has no agenda.
If you have unflaggable faith in your "pope", then sit back and let the truth work....This defensive attitude, smacks of "lack of faith".....If the truth will support your viewpoint, you don't need to defend this papa.
You're never going to 'convert' anybody here, anyway. It's like I say....what a person believes, has no effect on what is true and what is not....but it does affect the interpretation of "fact''.
Every "defense" actually, casts doubt on YOUR confidence.
Carkruger my kids go to catholic/Jesuit school. Your church must be very different than what we are experiencing. The teachers are socialist/Marxists and the kids believe in gay marriage. However I have not found the Blaze making such innuendos about the Pope at all. The articles seem to praise him for being Christ-like rather than pompous with traditions.
I agree with your sentiments totally. It seems as though people are just trying to start a rift where there is none. Let the Pope has his own style. There is nothing wrong with that.
There is going to be a lot of controversy about this new papa.....He is looking more and more like Bah Rahk's soul brother, and will use the same 'alinsky' tactics to accomplish the very same goals that 'beloved leader', has been using. Cass Sunstein laughs out loud.
This is a nudge.... wait for the shove.
As a Catholic I agree 100%.
The Truth and Jesus Christ need no defense. Let this all play out. It's fine with me, and I'm a devout Catholic.
@Caretaker, @NHWinter, @wilma
No worries about their stories they are not doing it out of malice. As Fulton Sheen once said ther are not a hundred people you hate the church for who she truely is, but rather they hate her for what they think she believes. Thats why the comment box exists. From an outside perspective things dont make sense to people. People only see politics and if I were outside the faith thats all I would see. so instead of condemning them pray, fast, give alms and teach.
Like Nancy Pelosi the devout Catholic....right?
Tell Mike to go back to the trascript and read and you will see that he does actually Say the holy name. Asking Mary for her intercesion to her beloved son is not idolotry, only to a small mind it may seem so. Praying is asking the intercession of someone to appeal to a greater power...ie God, the Holy Trinity. Paul even tells you to pray for one another, and no death doesnt seperate those in Christ, so wrong again. Question is when are you going to stop following a man made religion that can only find its roots in the 16th century and not from the side of the crucified Christ?
You dont understand actions and formal Catholic teachings are different things. People sin, they do wrong but Her teachings remain and are true, thats the real issue you would have to address not whether some Jesuit violates the Churches teachings and is a Marxist or mason.
Exactly my thoughts, nothing new taught,
@jobow you are a typical catholic. You do not know the bible. You pray to God not Mary. Mary is no intercesser. She is a sinner like us all. She can't help anyone.
No I believe in God's Word which some cathecism. That is man made and heresy in Gods eyes.
Yes Paul prayed to God for people. The pope prayed to Mary. Sorry there is only on mediator and His Name is Jesus. That is idolatry praying to Mary to intercede. Check mate there buddy boy.
"5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, "1 Timothy 2: 5-6.
You really should study your bible not the cathecism.
first its Joboww with two w's but thats neither here nor there. Second I am glad that you know my biblical knowledge, now tell me thunder why you accept the new testament books you do again? Who compiled them? Please stop asking others to pray for you then because they are sinners, kid you cant be serious you accuse me of not knowing scripture yet you go against Pauls own exortation, please.
Since you are able to declare heresy
Now as for the condesention calling me buddy boy I thank you for the persecution and the false testimony against my character and knowledge. My seperated brother in Christ you really you claim full knoledge of scripture but it is only your own interpretation, your man made tradition of how you read the scriptures that makes you pick and choose what you wish to see (hense 2 Peter 3).
I must take a moment to laugh here because you are now declaring what is and what is not heresy. Please venerable brother show me your authority to loose and bind on the faithful any doctrine, please just one. Show me where Christ gives anyone who prays to him the authority to loose and bind. You see I cant find any promise of the sort. If you are the teacher then please declare for the Lutherans and the Baptists whether Baptism saves you (water baptism). Please for you are your own Pope, your keys seem to lack the luster they should carry since they are not from the Blessed Trinity which we proclaimed, your welcome on that BTW.
You now realized that it wasn’t just to Mary and your friend now seems rather fallible in his own estute logic. Praying to mary doesn’t make her a mediator apart from Christ just like praying for you doesn’t make me a mediator apart from Christ. Christ is the head of the Body, and as scripture says we cant say to one part of the body I don’t need you. Ney, Mary like the scriptures say “ the prayers of a righteous man availith much, and since she is in heaven beholding the beatific vision and those in Christ are not separated, even by death we can ask her to pray for us, so too we can go directly to God seeking his Mercy. You are the critic at the art gallery who condemns others to praising the aritists work but you don’t realize that in doing so they are giving glory and all honor to the one who made it.
I feel sorry for you and will pray for you +JMJ+
I find you to be a idiot of major sorts the heights of which no can figure out. IE the church does not pray to Mary as God but as one person asking another for prayer. So if you want to disagree with what catholic believe in find but to disagree with what they don't believe in is being dishonest.
SonOfThundre I guess the Holy Spirit was praying to Mary too in Luke 1:42 , Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb ...
No. Nancy Pelosi is NOT a devout Catholic. The difference between her and me is I mean what I say and say what I mean and Pelosi does not. I am 100% pro-life. She is pro-death is every way. Pelosi should be excommunicated. Don't be surprised if this pontiff does exactly that.
Any catholic by church doctrine that is not pro life and supports pro death is automatically excommunicated.
@joboww, the counterfeit Mary you believe in is heresy. Changing what the Bible says is heresy.
A counterfeit Mary leads Catholics astray from a pure devotion to Christ. The blasphemies Rome teaches about Mary are deplorable and rob Christ of His glory. Here are just a few...she made atonement for sin, she will crust the head of the serpent, she was sinless, she continues to bring us the gifts of salvation, she was the cause of salvation for the whole human race, she will deliver souls from death and she is the mediatrix of all grace.
Teaching that mary atones for sins is heresy. It is your teachers saying this
In the Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma, Dr. Ludwig Ott states, "In the power of the grace of Redemption merited by Christ, Mary, by her spiritual entering into the sacrifice of her Divine Son for men, made atonement for the sins of men, and ... merited the application of the redemptive grace of Christ. In this manner she co-operates in the subjective redemption of mankind" (page 213). Here the Catholic Church is claiming that Mary made atonement for the sins of men!
.@begreen as far as Genesis 3:15. Catholics changed the text and meaning of the Bible.
The Catholic Douay-Reims Bible states in Genesis 3:15 that the woman herself will win the victory over Satan. It reads, "I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed; she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel." This perverts the Hebrew text which reads
Continue for greeny
This perverts the Hebrew text which reads "He" (referring to Jesus) will crush the serpent's head.
What no response to my showing you that praying for one another is ok...I mean I thought you were the authority on all things, how could you be wrong!?
“Here are just a few”…
“she made atonement for sin” – just as you and I must atone for our sins. It isn’t a matter about her dying on the cross of all mankind thereby bringing salvation. You simply don’t understand that suffering is salvific only because it is done in Christ. Colossians 1:24
“she will crust the head of the serpent”: this one is too long to show you on the comment box, but I will post the link for your convience: http://thecatholicvoyager.blogspot.com/2010/08/how-can-mary-crush-serpents-head-look.html
she was sinless – so where does it say that she sinned? The only thing that you can say is that it says she needed a savior in her magnificat, but needing a savior doesn’t automatically mean she sinned. Just as if im walking down a path and a trap is set there and you stop me from falling into the trap, I did not fall into the trap (sin) but was saved from it
“she continues to bring us the gifts of salvation, she was the cause of salvation for the whole human race, and she is the mediatrix of all grace” – this is by far the easiest in that it is a fact that Marys Yes brought the second person of the Trinity to life. All other things follow from this. That you dislike that we aknowledge that her yes was important in salvation history only shows your arrogance
Now this is only a beginners course for you we can keep going if you would like but everytime you challenge us and we show you where it is you run.
@jobo are you kidding me??? Mary was sinnless. wow you really are exposing yourself as a cathloic and someone who does not even had read the Bible. Everyone is born with original sin.Jesus was the only born without sin conceived by the Holy Spirit. Mary was Borneo with sin. First off the bible clearly says we all have sinned. That means everyone except God, Jesus is God too. All means all silly boy. Mary is a sinner. Check it out a Romans 3:23.
"23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Roman 3:23.
You can pray to God or Jesus for someone but praying to an idol who is dead (Mary or your saint) can not help and unbiblical. Praying to statues Mary, your saints is not biblical and is idolatry.
Mary is not a deity. She does forgive our sins and gives us salvation. That is Jesus only. Mary is in Heaven and there is no way she can help you. Jesus is the only way.
"6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." - John 14 6
Jesus did not say mary was the way. Mary can not offer gifts of salvation. You are so duped in your twisted theology.
Next you will tell that Mary was assumed or ascended in to heaven. Lol
BEGREEN, I'm talking about a formal excommunication like what was done to Archbishop Marcel Levebvre back in 1988. The Holy See put it in writing.
“23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Roman 3:23.”
- And the wages of sin is death, huh why did Elijah not taste death, how about Enoch, see you claim understanding yet your literacy in the scriptures is again and again confounded
“You can pray to God or Jesus for someone but praying to an idol who is dead (Mary or your saint) can not help and unbiblical. Praying to statues Mary, your saints is not biblical and is idolatry.”
- Those that have passed on are not dead but alive in Christ. We don’t pray to statues any more then when you look at a picture and remember something fondly it brings to mind the person. Are all of your checks going so bounce Son? I mean really? Go back read the scriptures the “dead” aren’t dead like you think
“Mary is not a deity. She does forgive our sins and gives us salvation. That is Jesus only. Mary is in Heaven and there is no way she can help you. Jesus is the only way.”
- never argued this point, you are confusing how salvation came to the world with who salvation is found in. Keep setting up your straw men, please…
Next you’ll tell me that scripture alone is true…again pray tell why do you accept the books you do of the new testament…pray tell
I think I have shown enough to a reasonable mind the fallacies you have put forth thus farth and will continue to put forth in the future. For those with objections to the Catholic faith who want to know the whats and whys in good faith i would encourage visiting catholic.com, catholicism.org as well as the sites mentioned in the article above
Are you new here? This is straight from Glenn Beck's playbook. Accuse but don't accuse. "Some are saying X. I don't believe X, I'm just raising the questions. Why won't Y answer questions about X? Do your own homework."
I dont know who you are responding to but this conversation has been going on and on now for a while, that you insist on making accusations are are ambiguous without citing examples doesnt help your own cause

Good for Senator Portman, I’m sure he wrestled with the issue. I respect his decision.
The Limited Government Case Against Gay Marriage http://www.firstthings.com/onthesquare/2012/11/the-limited-government-case-against-gay-marriage
Why is it that progressive and liberal politicians always look after their best interest instead of what's better for the collective and or majority.
I would expect a gay constituent person to feel that way, but there's no room in political leadership for selfish people who only care about their personal interest and not whats'the best interest of society or the majority of his constituents.
All my kids could tell me tomorrow that they're gay and I still would not support gay marriage.
It's the reason why Obama is failing miserably because he's self centered, narcisisttic, self glorifying fool.
doesn't sound like the right way to make laws. kind of deciding gun laws for the people based on what you think as opposed by the constitution and and God's natural laws
right is right and wrong is wrong and never the twain shall meet. the tain't is there for a reason
Get Government completely out of Marriage. Let private individuals define it. That isn't what the queers want though, they want to use the police power of government to force you to associate and accept their life style.
There has been a concerted 25 year effort to "brainwash" the American people to portray homosexuals as "victims" and to treat opponents of "homosexual rights" as Nazi/KKK-like "bigots". An entire book (After the Ball: How Americans will Conquer their Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 1990's) was written by an advertising man and a media psychologist to concoct a propaganda campaign only Josef Goebbels could admire. You can read an abbreviated version of the strategy written in 1987 called “The Overhauling of Straight America". Among other things, the authors said that homosexuals must be constantly and persistently portrayed as "victims" to elicit Americans' natural tendencies to protect the oppressed. For that reason, the pedophiles in the sodomite movement must stand down from visible participation in the movement -- at least until low-hanging fruit like "marriage" and military service were achieved -- because nobody would consider a pedophile to be a "victim"..
Sen. Portman, do you understand you are part, now, of the "slippery slope" toward secularism?
@FULCRUM, I support your stance. I feel the same way. If my children or grand children felt they loved someone of the same sex, that's their choice (wrong but their decision) Just don't ruin marriage institution between a man and a woman.
Portman, you can still love your son, but not his choice, not support gay marriage just because of your son. That doesn't change anything. Many family members do things we don't approve of, but accept, but marriage of the same sex is a sham and against God's Will and should. not to be recognized by laws of this land. For goodness sake, don't drag the rest of us into it with laws.
"Good for Senator Portman, I’m sure he wrestled with the issue. I respect his decision."
Wrong, it's actually a sign that his father does NOT love his son. If he loved his son, he would be doing everything he could to tell him what the Bible says about sin and hell. Instead, he has no problem with his sinful son bound for a literal place called Hell.
Portman is like a doctor who refuses to tell a patient they have cancer because he doesn't want to offend the patient. That's not love.
Portman is like a firefighter who does nothing while a house burns down with his son inside. That's not love.
Actual LOVE is to tell homosexuals about sin, judgement and Hell; so that they can find salvation through Christ and not have to go to Hell. That's LOVE!

I first heard of this on Glenn’s radio program talking about a registry for disabled people which sounded creepy and fascistic. Then I saw Jon Stewart going off about Republicans not signing the treaty and he showed Bob Dole in a wheel chair coming to DC to support the signing of the treaty. I was asking myself – what was so bad about this treaty again?
Anderson Cooper make Senator Mike Lee look a conspiracy loon. I felt embarrassed for Lee; his reasoning for not supporting the treaty were weak and unconvincing. Maybe the treaty is horrible and the Senate was right to defeat it, but my word we have to have better communicators. Everyone in America thinks the already uncaring conservatives won’t even help the disabled. And if you don’t listen to Beck, no one even knows about the underpinnings of the treaty.
We must have better communicators or the left will continue to control the conservative narrative.
You are so right. I think they are all afraid the left will not like them, They will never like them so they better start hammering them the same way they get hammered. If they are stupid call them stupid. If they are Marxist call them Marxist. The left demonizes because they know they can get away with it. Just like Romney saying 0bama is a nice guy. All the while they are saying Romney is a felon and a murderer.

I think he got the tape that LA Times would not release of Obama praising that PLO terrorist. After the way Obama publicly humiliated Trump at the correspondence dinner; he’s looking for some payback. At the same time I can’t imagine Trump would do anything that would hurt Mitt and keep Obama in the White House.
October 20, 2012 at 11:04pm
I paid the $5.00 dollars to watch this movie all the disabled reporters were children of politically connected liberals. It’s not the kids fault but if you saw the movie it’s a hatchet job on the GOP, where Karl Rove and Michelle Bachman are made fools of.
October 19, 2012 at 7:31pm
Billy Hallowell, The Blaze Journalist who wrote this article has told us the following:
1.”one that Republicans should probably be nervous about”
2. “Here are the four developments that should give right-of-center Americans some anxiety”
3. “but that the current scenario still favors Obama”
4. “there are more paths to re-election for Obama than there are for potential Romney’s victory”
5. “In fact, he claims that the numbers and the outreach are better than they were in 2008, a potentially-troubling sign, if true, for the Romney camp”
6.”According to the Daily Beast, Obama has a better ground game”
7.”Obama campaign circulated a memorandum this morning, claiming to be ahead in the state among early voters”
8.”Obama’s campaign brought in more money than Romney’s. While it was a narrow lead — $114 million versus $111.6 million — the change represents a movement away from financial victory for Romney”
To sum up The Blaze Journalist: We should be nervous, have anxiety, Obama still favored, Obama has more paths to re-election, better ground game, more money and more early voters.
Well I guess I might as well stay home and not vote. Thanks for that inspiring post.

For Pete’s sake he’s a grown man. This story read’s like a kid who got laid at bible camp. This is the type of material that makes people not want to be part of a Christian Community. This story smacks of theocratic fascism – this is not a free man in a free society. This is a public lynching over what – he slept with someone.
@Freedom...ding ding! You got it! The lest is on a smear campaign, it doesn't matter who you are, if you oppose you will be dealt with!!
FREEDOMTHIEF . . . Nonsense. It's the freaks at King's Cross you have an issue with, not Obama.

Agreed. Fact is this has absolutely NOTHING to do with Christianity, faith or church.
Real christian people would talk to him privately, not publish a public expose' to try to
damage him. How much you wanna bet the writer and/or someone involved are Barry
supporters? Granted, maybe Dinesh could have been a little more discreet, but its
pretty obvious his divorce was already transpiring.
This is a FAR CRY from a John Edwards situation.
@Freedom: BINGO! The article appeared TODAY for a reason. Today the 2016 DVD started shipping. 2016 is getting out and it's being seen by more and more on a daily basis.
This honestly sounds like a hit piece meant to destroy him. For all we know, he hasn't slept with this woman a single time. For a "Christian" organization to say that he now has to wait "6 months" for the California waiting period to expire is, in my opinion, completely lame. And even if he does have to wait 6 months, once again, this is coming from the assumption that he slept with this woman. I guess it never occurred to them that he may be engaged to another woman and not sleeping with her.
BUDDY BAG . . . Yes, handle things privately. Yes. Smart thinking. Hey, where'd you get that T-shirt?
For a “Christian” organization to say that he now has to wait “6 months” for the California waiting period to expire is, in my opinion, completely lame.
First off, that Christian organization is Campus Crusade for Christ, now CRU. You can’t begin to count the MILLIONS of people who have come to Christ through that organization. So I find your implication offensive.
It doesn’t matter how long he has to wait. He filed for divorce AFTER the Christian event and lied about it. If he lied about the divorce, he probably lied about not sleeping with her too. I don’t believe you spend the night at a hotel with a woman and nothing happens. If nothing was intended to happen, they would have checked into separate rooms.
I get it, you are not a Christian, and you don’t give a d@mn. I do. I despise “Christians” who defile the name of Christ, especially those who use Christ for monetary gain. He wasn’t even man enough to repent or leave the Church. “Oh, I broke up the engagement. Just keep the money flowing.”
Nobody is out to destroy him. He himself destroyed his Christian reputation and proved himself to be a liar. Those who give a sh*t about principles and agree with D’Souza that Obama is not a commie can keep on advertising his movie. Your loss.

I saw the movie Friday afternoon and I was really disappointed. Based on the trailer I thought it was going to be fast paced with a lot of energy. I didn’t learn anything new. I took 3 people from work who are not political at all and you really need to brief people who don’t know who Marx or what Anti-colonialism means. I was so anxious during the film that it wasn’t making sense to them. I wish he had gone further into describing the background of Obama’s founding father.
I know what you mean by feeling anxious about others less informed watching it. I feel that way every time I try to talk to my friends who are clueless about what's going on in our country and the world.
Dinesh covered a wide span of information in his movie, but it would have lasted 4 hours had he gone into more details about Marxism and anti-colonialism. I recommend that anyone who saw the movie also read his book. It goes into much more depth and better explains how he came to his conclusions.
Today I was approached by a friend who I thought was not taking me seriously. Recently, another conservative approached her with a similar message. Hearing it from to unrelated sources made her think twice. Now she is paying attention. It took a year but she woke up in time. Never give up.
I wonder where you work where co-workers don't know who Marx is or what anti-colonialism is. It's not like these are obscure topics. Most 8th graders can expound on both topics (I'm a teacher). I hope that POS Moore gets apoplectic when he reads that he was an inspiration to D’Souza. I can't wait to see the movie, I'll be encouraging all my family, friends and acquaintances to view it to ensure it's not only a commercial success but to help divert the vote from that a$$ in the White House.
I think the charge of "Marxist" and socialist have been cheapened over the years from the many times it's been used (don't get me wrong, if you truly understand what it means, it's not flattering)
Anti-colonialism is a less corrupt word that people can look up and see what it means. But more importantly, the people who believe it and how they impact politics.
A bad representation of progressivism is an accurate representation.
Was a good movie but there is one portion of it that is not accurate. Frank Davis IS actually Obamas biological father. You want a movie that has it dead accurate and want to educate ur friends... Check this out...
Saw 2016 tonight. wow. Can't remember being at a movie this full and the whole audience had their attention riveted to the screen, then broke out and applauded the movie at the conclusion. Real eye opener. One can only hope enough eyes get opened.
If the majority of people have never heard of Karl Marx, we're already screwed.
Obama will start a war in Syria to win this election.
Agree or argue?
Hell Freezes Over: Chinese State Run Media Get it 100% Right
He can't, because there nothing there.
When I hear a word or phrase I do not know... I open a dictionary
For what that is worth
The only ill-informed are the fools that thought what they saw on the screen was the truth. The source material, the Roots of Obama's Rage has been completely debunked. It is more a work of fiction than anything else. Conservative sources such as the Weekly Standard have even reported how little truth there is between the pages.
Of course, those that believe Beck and Barton are truthful are too blind, too foolish to know what the the truth is, they are just idiots taking pride in their ignorance.
Carkrueger: I didn't think it was difficult to understand and I wasn't familiar with colonialism, anti-colonialism...and it is all clear to me now. I thought Mr. D'Sousa did a beautiful job explaining things very simply. ...you may be trying to make more of it than it is. It's really quite simple to understand... I'm sure your friends got it...
Encinomunist....I know, rather we know that's all you guys have left (in the pathetic leftist quiver of smears, lies, propaganda etc) is the enviable position of having to say that 2016 is a lie.....did you guys think that stance through fully ? You do realize that most of not all the material being talked in the film comes firectly from your CIC....so basically you and the trolls here are admitting that Obama is a liar and fraud .......finally you clowns have admitted what we have been saying for years...give the trolls a polite golf clap fellow Blazers, the trolls have done something right (for the wrong reasons) for a change. Ok maybe half a golf clap.
Encinom, it's fun to watch you twist and turn. You have finally gone off the edge by supporting Moore's proven falsehoods and (without even watching the movie) calling D'Souza's portrayal lies. Missed you yesterday. I love a good train-wreck.
@Encinom Have you even watched the movie? D'Souza explained his position extremely thoroughly, using cold hard facts. IF you watched the movie, you would know that he came to his conclusion not through lies, but by analyzing Obama's otherwise inexplicable actions and his words. I used to think Obama was an ignorant fool way over his head. Now I know that he is intelligent, calculating, and devious. You, on the other hand, appear to be an ignorant fool who is laughably ignorant of the issues.

Don't need to watch the movie, to know its nothing more than a collection of lies. The source material for the movie is a work of fiction, even the conservative Weekly Standard holds the source material out as a being nothing more than a collection of falsehoods.
The only ones seeing this work of trash are those that are brainwashed fools that believe Beck and Barton are also truthful.
Attended the preimer with the producer: He quoted that he had many more taped interviews but they refused to sign his disclosurer statement so he could not incorporate into his movie.
