I have to admit, this piece makes me more sorry for the French.
I’ve been saying it for decades: with the socialist invasion of the academic world, each generation is becoming deliberately dumber. As each generation of teachers learns less, they teach less. Socialists took over the teaching colleges early in the 20th century, and they’ve been watering down all teaching that promotes a better understanding of our own country and heritage.

Yeah, we wouldn’t want Trump to actually have to debate his stance or nail down some of his ideals or policies, would we? He never really debated anyone, he merely engaged in deflection and disparagement of opponents. He certainly didn’t dare go one-on-one with Rubio, Cruz or Fiorina.
I guess we’ll just have to wait until he’s elected before we find out his real motives and intentions…just like the German election of 1933.

This is one of those rare moments when I can actually agree with a democrat, at least in this circumstance.

This demoncrat, like so many others, seems unaware that the Declaration of Independence set the foundation for the fight against slavery; e.g., “life, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Perhaps David Barton should give a schooling on the floor of the State House (not to mention the US Congress).
And there were free blacks at the time. And black slaveowners. A really solid set of reasoning skills ya got there, Norton. You are wrong, lying, a pathetic pawn of o's divisive agenda. And you likely don't even know any of that. Where do we set the bar for stupid now?

Is jt just me, or is the photo in question missing from the article? Fortunately, I saw it on Fox.
This is apparently what passes for ‘diversity’ among liberals. Not surprisingly, they don’t even see their own hypocrisy.
I love TheBlaze, but I continually run into problems using it and especially commenting on it. Too many scripts running in the background. It drags, lags and hangs up, especially if I have another window open. I often get too frustrated to bother. Wish that would change.
I couldn't agree with you more. That and I'm so tired of looking at Glen Beck's smirking mug. He needs to go back to his old days and just do an hour a day instead of being such a pariah!
Me too! It’s very aggravating, commenting is often nearly impossible. It frequetly hangs up or crashes. It’s awful.
Where is the photo?

Fox News sold out to Trump. He was on nearly every day, spouting his inane Alinskyite slams against Cruz, who he recognized as his greatest threat. It was a battle of good against narcissistic progressivism, and the good guy lost. And FNC was a willing instrument in that malicious battle, providing only a nominal objectivity (except for some of the on-air personalities, who nevertheless couldn’t be open about their preference for Cruz). It’s a sad day for America. Conservatives see what’s happening. The rest will wake up suddenly, wondering what the hell happened.
And so, either way, our path is now clear: America will now get the government it deserves, instead of the government we need. This country, which was founded upon faith in God has deserted Him. And like ancient Israel, He leaves us to our false idols. We have surrendered to the enemy within.
It kinda redefines “the power of the press,” doesn’t it?

As is typical of those on the Left and others without a moral base, Trump Jr. is a pot calling the kettle black.He would have been more accurate by making the charge to a mirror…or to his dad.

Our government, at every level, has legislated away any attempts to instill any sense of morality or self-control, which invariably leads to more government control. SCOTUS first took prayer and then the Ten Commandments out of public schools (“If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments. However desirable this might be as a matter of private devotion, it is not a permissible state objective under the Establishment Clause. – Stone v. Graham, 1980), so young people would – with the obliging help of the media, the education system, and dysfunctional, anti-church parents – receive virtually no teaching of a moral standard to learn from. Kids soon learn that if they only have to worry about “man’s law” they stand a chance to “get away with it,” as opposed to God’s all-seeing eye and inescapable judgment. The result of this has been predictable: each new generation receives edges toward deeper and deeper selfishness and savagery. We are becoming a ‘Lord of the Flies’ culture.
Now, our state legislation has decided to make another tool illegal, putting tens of thousands of citizens at risk of arrest because of a forgotten that machete they used for clearing brush or stuck in with their camping gear years ago. Government has only one driving force, to make itself larger. That makes every citizen smaller and more helpless.

While I applaud the Pope’s magnanimous gesture toward MUSLIMS, why was there no mention of support for truly persecuted CHRISTIANS in the region? Scripture does advise us to pay attention to our own house of faith first (e.g., Gal. 6:10).

“I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks,” Trump added. “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
This is Trump’s true character leaking out, calling other candidates liars and sublly encouraging his followers to violence. There were people wearing Trump tee shirts assisting at the Nevada polls, intimidating and confusing some voters. When and if Trump becomes the nominee, will the ‘Brown Shirts’ formally appear? History does repeat itself: the names change, but the game remains the same.

Social media can be a great tool for unifying people. But shallow and evil people will use it to divide. The electronic forums have become the equivalent of the soapbox agitators,the rabble-rousers of times past.

Obama is on the verge of attaining one of his most vociferous campaign promises, but, to what end? How will it contribute to the security of the United States? In fact, other than fulfilling a rhetorical goal, how will it accomplish anything, other than giving aid and comfort to our avowed enemies? But then, treason and sedition charges don’t seem to apply to the elites.

I’m sorry to have to say I agree with her in principle…but not in practice. I agree that Trump is tapping the emotions of frustrated Americans, but he should not be shut down. I do agree that the media might consider not repeating his vulgarity and ‘quick-draw’ solutions, at least not without asking pertinent questions, such as, how will you do the things you claim you want to do while staying within constitutional limits to power? If he becomes a tyrant in his own egotistical right, how would that set him apart from Hillary, Obama, Sanders, et al? Just “because” is not a valid answer to entrust him with our future.

Orwell hits it again, in his novel ‘Animal Farm’: “All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.”
 February 23, 2016 at 7:22am
George Orwell’s prophetic novel ’1984′ should be required reading. At least then, students would understand what they’re getting into, and how the massive social manipulation works. Everyone else should read it as well. But of course, you can lead a person to wisdom, but you can’t make him think.

“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.
