“We respectfully invite you, in your final year in office, to do something no American president has ever done: reach out to secular America. Such attention from the Office of the President would demonstrate that freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and rationalists are accepted citizens.”
How are they NOT treated as “accepted citizens?” They have more rights than the typical Christian in today’s Amerika. Their non-theistic views are freely promoted in public schools, universities and entertainment media, while Christianity’s ideals and principles are increasingly impugned and marginalized. If you see political correctness in play, you’re seeing the dominance of their views. Ask conservative speakers trying to address a college crowd, or Christian bakers or farm owners which view is considered “unacceptable.”
The irony is that the Christian and conservative views that are currently being trashed are the very principles which have protected and which allow THEIR ideas to be accepted. You can be sure that their ‘victories’ will come back to bite them as well.

“[Rutgers groups] should not be inviting anyone like Yiannopoulos because what we stand for is inclusion and diversity,” student activist Nyuma Waggeh told the school’s paper. “If a speaker makes someone feel unsafe or uncomfortable, then they should not come to campus.”
Sadly, they don’t even recognize their own raging hypocrisy. They prove Orwell’s point in ‘Animal Farm’: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Sanders’ election would be a ‘fundamental’ national tragedy. His views are so ill-thought-out that he would soon be nothing more than a mouthpiece (the ‘face’ of Big Brother) for the string-pullers behind the curtain. If he objected, I think he’d eventually have a “heart attack,” stroke or other disablement (the type of unfortunate incident that often happens to weak kings who have ambitious underlings), leaving the command slot to someone more compliant or more Stalinesque. His election may push some toward armed revolt, considering his views and policies would likely be even more anti-constitutional than Obama’s. That would be all the government needs to completely vacate the vestiges of our Bill of Rights

I don’t think he’s capable of restraining his coarseness or shallow thinking.If the American people choose him as “the most powerful leader in the world,” what does that say about us? (Hint: probably about as much as Hitler’s election “said” about the German people at the time.)
When Lester Holt asked Trump if his language was presidential, Trump implied he would use more restraint as president. I wonder.

She has trampled on our military and her own State Dept employees, why should we expect her to respect the national flag? She’s in it for the power…to corrupt.

And the award for best, outstanding analysis of Superbowl (supposedly subliminal) propagandized ads and entertainment goes to…Matt Walsh! Bravo, sir!

The real “significant risk” comes from Obama’s deliberately destructive meddling with the economy.

I can’t understand what abortion has to do with “women’s health”, other than to threaten it, along with killing her child. But then, reason isn’t relevant any more.

I’ve read a lot of articles about conservatism and what it means. This is among the best I’ve seen,especially because it was written by someone too young to have learned it when such principles were actually taught to any practical degree in schools. It should be posted on high school and college bulletin boards, in churches, and in town and city halls across this country. She probably could have gone further in her analogies and descriptions, but the attention span today is typically too short to appreciate or absorb it anyway.

Isn’t it an abrogation of Obama’s oath of office and his duty as commander-in-chief?
Welcome to the USA, where the only recognized act of treason is patriotism.
It might be worthwhile for Ted to explain to the New Hampshire audience that it is precisely BECAUSE of America’s Christian heritage that they have a heritage of fierce independence, and that a candidate displaying his faith should be seen as a plus for them instead of a threat. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. That sacred book is where our whole concept of liberty comes from. This country needs to be re-tutored as to our foundational values, because we’re toast without them.
So be as religious as you are or its over? Religion sit here. Politics sit here. Don't sit together.

I suddenly have new respect for Dreyfuss. Not because he sounds like a republican, but because he sounds like an honest truth-seeker.

Terrorizing the terrorists; it’s the only strategy that actually works.

So, ‘The Don’ is putting out feelers for his own brand of ‘Brown Shirts’? Who didn’t see this coming? (Rhetorical question: none of his supporters seem to see where this is leading.)

“Labels” are how we communicate. But some folks just don’t want to listen, and others don’t know how to speak clearly.( I wonder which one I fall into?)

This clarifies the “low-information voter”. These folks don’t even realize they’ve been the rhetorical ‘frogs in the pot’, that they’ve been taught socialism their entire life, but are so close to it and so under-educated they don’t even recognize what it is: dependency on the State, and the surrender of their God-given rights in exchange for nominal, revocable privileages.

How in Hell is segregation considered to be “forward-thinking?” I don’t know what they teach at U.C., but it certainly doesn’t seem to be (accurate) history, nor humanities, nor (non-Marxist, non-Alinskyist) philosophy.

I wonder if the self-described (during the election) Christian will turn ‘bottom-up” during prayer call? Or is he going to pass along some high-value data? Hard to trust a president who has shown himself to be against this country’s best interests at every turn, especially when his apparent sympathies are with radical Muslims such as those aligned with that mosque.
