Wallace’s claim to be a scholar is dubious, since a scholar should recognize that the people she seems to describe are ‘literalists’ not ‘fundamentalists’. Her vitriol and generalization also makes me doubt her sincerity as a Christian as well. The Bible, as God’s ‘instruction manual’ for the human race, uses various means to get His message across, including good and bad examples, allusions, metaphors, allegory, etc.

First, the phrase “pro-choice” is a false narrative, in that pro-LIFE is also a choice. Second, the Guttmacher Institute is funded by Planned Parenthood, so they have a vested interest in skewing the polls.
A better name for the abolition opponents would be the Forced Birth Brigade as they would allow NO CHOICE. The goal is to punish women for enjoying recreational fornication. Contraception fails and abortion is a backup when a pregnancy is unwanted.

“It’s disheartening that people made hateful comments,” Kohler told the Journal. “But a lot of people might find it hateful itself to support a man who if selected will take away all the rights and … equality that the LGBT community has made over the past 45 years.”
I don’t support the ‘gay agenda’ – which appears to be aimed at making homosexuocracy the ruling paradigm.- but I do believe people have a right to make their own decisions, unless it impairs the rights of others. I’m not a Trump supporter either, but I can’t recall him announcing any purges of gays.

“The most abortion-friendly countries in Europe are more strict than almost all of America,” Burguiere said. “The most restrictive countries in Europe are tougher on abortion than all of America.”
“And Europe is supposed to be more enlightened than the United States. And, maybe the truth is, for this particular topic, they actually are,” he concluded.
“God bless America?” No; God, save America.
Look at it this way: Europe has seen the demographics. They know their ethic populations are dwindling, while Muslim births are exploding (pun just happened). And you wonder why our tax base can’t keep up with the insatiable demands of politicians?

Taking the source (CNN) with a grain of salt, the 17% of conservatives are probably not really as conservative as people might think. A real conservative – one who lives and dies by their principles – would rather vote third-party, write-in, or not vote at all rather than vote for a person as monumentally corrupt as Hillary Clinton. These self-described “conservatives” are no more conservative than nominal “Christians” are actual Bible-believing, church-going, Jesus-worshiping, humble, compassionate Christians.
“Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reversed one of his key campaign promises Saturday, saying at his speech in Gettysburg that the United States will pay for his proposed wall along the southern border — with Mexico “reimbursing” the U.S. at a later date.”
Uh,huh. Of course they will, after we pay for it first. Reality bites at times, doesn’t it? Especially when you’ve already swallowd the bait.

Trump vs Biden. Now that would be entertainment, watching them try to out-bloviate each other. Maybe Joe could just scare him away with a couple of shotgun blasts through the back door.
This silly season is the silliest of all. The presidency and government in general has degenerated into a contest between morons, and has brought disgrace on us before the entire world. Don’t ask how pathetic it can get, or they will likely show us.
Everyone, regardless of their job, has a right to state their conscience if they choose to. But people need to keep in mind that expressing one’s conscience often comes with a penalty. And sometimes you don’t get a ‘do-over’.

After a long pause, he started believing again. Sounds like my own story, and probably the story of many.

“But when asked by debate moderator and Fox News host Chris Wallace Wednesday if he would accept the results — after claiming that the electoral system is rigged against him for the past several months — Trump refused to give an affirmative answer as he instead slammed the media for being ‘corrupt’ and ‘dishonest’ in its coverage of 2016.”
I think it’s a safe bet what his answer will be: If he wins, it will be “a fair and just decision by the American people.” If he loses, “The system is rigged.”
The democrat party has rigged national elections since '68
Trump will win this years rigged general election because of massive national republican turnout and the 500 pound gorilla in the polling booth; the UNLIKELY VOTER.
James O' Keefe is providing concrete proof of massive systemic Democratic Party electoral fraud.
The engaged electorate will accept the facts and the status quo will ignore that truth.
The ones that stand the most to lose are Trumps detractors. I eagerly await that outcome.

I’m not a Trump supporter, but this is one instance wherein I believe he’s right on track. The Obama malAdminstration has done everything it can to avoid doing real damage to ISIS, while doing the minimum necessary to LOOK like it is fighting against ISIS. Suddenly, Obama goes all aggressive against it? That doesn’t pass the smell test.
No, he's completely wrong. We're not calling the shots on the ground in Mosul. Obama isn't the one who decided to do this. The Iraqis and the Kurds are leading the offensive and we're just providing air support.
How many do you think have been killed in our airstrikes, if you had to guess? It's certainly not "the bare minimum,"as anyone involved in the air war could tell you

“…Trenholm is “making that effort, where so many … that have legs, that could stand, are sitting or kneeling and not using their ‘well legs’ to stand and respect those who have fought and died for our flag and for our country.”
Some people make headlines because they are ‘characters’. Others – a chosen few – rarely make headlines but have oodles of ACTUAL character. Today was this kid’s day. Heed the lesson.

“Most students were up-front and admitted they didn’t know or couldn’t name any accomplishment of Clinton’s in her decades-long political career. Others said they were simply voting for Clinton because she is a woman.”
“What makes her qualified to lead a nation simply “because she’s a woman?” A woman who supports the government sanction of the murder of infants (including females) in thw womb? A woman who helped destroy her husband’s rape and sexual assault victims’ reputations? A woman who callously left her ambassador and other Americans to be killed by Islamic terrorists – whom she won’t even name as “Islamic” terrorists? A woman who has dedicated her life to the acquisition of power and wealth by trading political favors and government secrets?
And that’s only a ‘sampler’ list. Her ‘fans’ truly are FANatics…in the worst sense.

Wow. Just when you thought the American people couldn’t get any more clueless. Unfortunately, the Russian peoplehave been led by Putin & Co to think just the opposite.

The only major disagreement I have with Matt’s article is where he says the youth need to be protected.
If anything, they’ve been grossly over-protected, especially in the (dis)educational atmosphere of today’s schools and colleges. They all need (and I hate to say this) a dramatic re-education program to fill them in on the truth – both the good and the bad. Unfortunately, young people typically have no alternative but to go with what they’ve been taught, especially by the supposed ‘experts’, the teachers and professors. The kids don’t have the awareness or life experience to see the bias that is getting shoved into their malleable heads. and unfortunately, as some of us learned from the Bible (Proverbs 22:6) the things kids learn early on are the things that make the deepest impressions for the rest of their lives.

I understand Glenn’s frustration, but I wish he hadn’t given the trolls that headline. Even mention of a passing thought is enough to start the grinding machinery of those who barely have a passing thought.
I wish that Darrell Castle had been given more – or any – press to actually make him visible to the voters. The only time I’ve heard him, or even of him, was on Glenn’s radio show, once during his interview with him.
Anyone that would consider a FELON for President needs their head examined.

Trump’s hanging out with the most cultured and intelligent people in the world, yet his behavior – as expressed by his treatment of women – is no better than an old-school back-alley thug.One has to wonder what other aspects of his personality might surface if he grabs the reins of Oval Office power. We already know he’s unforgiving, ruthless, has disregard for the ‘little people’ if they get in his way, has impulsive behavior, is quick to retaliate against any perceived personal slight, and doesn’t appear to think through the consequences of his actions. Do we really want his finger on the ‘button’, especially now?
Bill Clinton lowered the bar for presidential behavior. And – with the exception of the Bush 43 years – it’s been tanking ever since.
You obviously are unaware of the behavior of "the most cultured and intelligent people in the world." A should-be-obvious example is the blatant, illicit sexual behavior of the whole Kennedy clan. And Henry Kissinger, U.S. secretary of state in the 1970s, who certainly meets your criteria of "most cultured and intelligent," said, speaking from experience, "Power is the great aphrodisiac."
When you mix "highly cultured," intelligent," and "power," you get a truly great aphrodisiac, with the resultant consequence of concentration on sex.

“Hillary Clinton has been — has put forward more information about herself than I believe any presidential candidate in modern, probably in history. I think we can safely say that,” she told MSNBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
Did you “safely say that” about Obama’s “most transparent Administration in our history,” too? Isn’t it fascinating, how history can come back to warn us if we remember, and to bite us when we forget it?
