To me, the height of elitist condescending racism is to “pretend” a girl like Rachel is a “smart cookie” when clearly she is a clear example, as tragically young Trayvon was, of the bigotry of failure to hold these kids to proper standards of discipline and achievement and work ethic to improve their chances of future success. Making excuses and giving them passes on what SHOULD be demanded and expected of all teenagers is the real victimization of these kids, not “racism”. If you truly respect a person regardless of race then love them enough to discipline them and hold them to the same standards they will need to make something of themselves in the world, like Dr. Ben Carson’s mom did and everybody else’s family did who ever had success. Old Mrs. Longwith taught us to read and write cursive in the first grade, and thank you, Mrs. Longwith. We need more Mrs. Longwiths and less Piers Morgans.
Normally I am opposed to the overuse of lawsuits, but in this situation I am in complete agreement.
Hit 'em were it hurts.

They chose her to do this because she had her first baby as a teenager and went on to go to law school? Well, good for her. Seems to me she is proof that when “life” happens, you overcome difficulties and meet your goals anyway. Silly me. I was always taught that was what you were SUPPOSED to do. Now, does she look that child in the eyes and say, ” I wish I could have killed you before you were born so my life could have been easier and more convenient?” REALLY???!!Because this seems to be why they chose her to speak.

Looks like the Netroots children are beginning to learn that you gotta watch what you wish for.

Ya think? I’ll believe it when hell freezes over that they will “fix it”, and that it didn’t go directly to the very top. When are these crooks going to jail? I’ll believe anybody cares when that happens.

Dear Media, First they came for us. Now they’re coming for YOU!
I dont give a damn what happens to the media. they never stand up for my rights. I hope they get obliterated by the tyrannical govt they put in power.
I simply don't care about what happens to them.
At what point should we remind people that these same bureaucrats are purchasing two billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition? (Yo Buddy)
Agreed Slappy. I don't have much sympathy for a media that serves as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.
It seems a convenient coincidence that on the very day that the media finally takes an interest in Benghazi, the administration says, "Oh, by the way, we've been tapping your phones for months, so, just sayin." This has drawn the media away from Benghazi, as their self-interest is now at stake. It will be declared legal and necessary in the end, but it will have served it's true purpose, which was to divert attention from Benghazi.
Media Matters in a non-profit non-political organization with 501(3)c status...
Media Matters for America is a. Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, ...
This is just in case the left cannot keep their story straight.
@ Max Jones - I fogot about those 2 billion rounds of ammo. They just might be able to eliminate all those reporters and butt sniffers.Many have had the old nose stuck all the way up so far they have a brown racing stripe on each side of their noses.
You allowed this to happen, faux journalists. Now you get lay in the bed you made...
It's funny how the media never really cares about the Constitution until the gov't comes after the one amendment that protects their rights. What they fail to realize is that without the Second Amendment, the Constitution dies.
Sigh! Unfortunately for these modern successors of George Goebbels, Valerie Plame was not working undercover when Richard Armitage mentioned her to the late Bob Novak, and thus had no expectation of secrecy.
Happening now as it did then?
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

Well, now we know what to do. When you form a patriotic tea party group, give it a name on your application like “Progressive Action Tactical Rational Information Organization Template”.Get the approval and then call it “P.A.T.R.I.O.T.”

This is why I like Ted Cruz. He doesn’t call BS Miraclegrow.

Hate to tell you, fedgov, but anybody who grew up on the west side of San Antonio, Texas, has known how to make a gun out of a car antenna since pre-1955. They called ‘em “zip guns”.
...and some of us out to the east of San Antonio (seguin) make the real things, capable of 500m shots with open sights in machine shops.
There is nothing that has been built that can not be built by someone else, and guns are simple pieces of equipment.

Works for me. Just please somebody pull the plug on the microphone and plug in the chair.

What part of “or prohibiting the free excercise thereof” do these people not understand? I still do not understand why prayer should be banned at ANY event- it is the FREE EXCERCISE THEREOF. Nobody is forced to participate in it. Just sit there. These decisions should all be LOCAL.
For once I agree with Carville!!! Ted is moving to the top of my list!
James Carville is the only Louisiana half breed Human/Space Alien I know.... LOL
Love Cruz - would love him to run. Has no chance at all in a nationwide election.
My question: Just read Exodus; so Pharaoh lets the Israelites leave Egypt, and they camp out on the Red Sea. Then, LORD decides to harden Pharaoh's heart and Pharaoh decides to recapture the Israelites, in order to prove to the Pharaoh that the LORD is the one and true God. We know what happens; the LORD splits the Red Sea for Moses and the Israelites escape and as the Pharaoh's chariots drown behind them.
Why is there no record of this in ancient Egyptian records? Did the LORD fail? In fact, why is there absolutely no record of any Jewish enslavement in Egypt?
Actually Monk, he kind of reminds me of Skeletor. I guess that's close enough.
He won't win re-election because he didn"t start campianing right after he was elected. The Democrats probably already have $ 5 million bucks. For either party you must fill the coffers full of money right after the election. You don't have time to be a politician any more since you have about 3 months to rest before you start campaining for the next election.
Yeah, yeah, yeah-
to paraphrase James Carville with the Reptilian head,
Cruz..."he ain't squishy, he's our brother...
ya' got that right, Lizard Lips....he's our TEA PARTY Brother."
remember when Harry Reid said the Tea Party would disappear
and "Maxine-Get-A-Rabie-Vaccine Walters"
told the Tea Party "to go to hell" ?
Well, Booga-booga..........we're STILL here !
Ted Cruz was singularly the ONLY good thing to come out of the Nov 2012 elections. God Bless Texas!!! I love this firebrand -he is what America needs - let's do away with the old-school GOP dinosaurs like McCain, Boehner, Mcconnell. It's time for new young blood like Cruz, Ryan, Rubio and others! If we want to take our country back we need fresh ideas from firecracker politicians, not old rich guys. America will NOT vote for them
You'd be surprised. The people in Texas like Cruz and want to keep him in power. I feel that he will win reelection
As long as his mother registered his birth with the US Embassy/Consulate in Canada, he's eligible.
One problem: Ted was born in Canada. Would have to see about eligibility.
Well, at least Carville hasn't completely lost his mind.
Let the record show, I love Ted Cruz. But this looks to me like a Democratic strategy. If I were Hillary, I'd love to run against Ted Cruz. It'd be an easy win.
I think the precedent has been set that citizenship is no longer a requirement.
I don't know about you guys, but if I get accolades from a Democratic strategist, I would reevaluate my political endeavors.

Euphemism: “A mild or indirect word or expression for one too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing.”
Abortion is about killing life. Those who support it don’t want to call it what it is. The “opposite” of pro-life is pro-DEATH, not pro”choice”. The choice being made five minutes before the baby is born to abort it is death. The choice to kill the BABY after it is born is MURDER. It doesn’t matter what the girl “knew”. It matters what she did. A BABY was killed. A human being. The actual terms to describe it are that “she murdered her baby”. She knew enough to create him or her. Then she killed him or her.

We are going to the convention tomorrow and rejoining. Looking forward to seeing The Blaze booth.
Get a bigger mailbox then. Since I rejoined 6 months ago, I've easily received 100+ pieces of mail...including about 10 "renewal" notices to re-up my 1 year membership.
Not to mention that after I re-joined, I got a whole bunch of "send us more money" requests, which wound up drowning out a couple I never opened until too late...letters that said, ok, for your firearm insurance coverage you have to fill out these scraps of paper and return within 2 weeks...ooops...too late. Oh, and then there was another one I failed to open in time..."You didn't really want that NRA range bag we offered as a gift when you signed up did you? You could be nice and tell us to keep it and use the money for your cause...either way, let us know in 2 weeks or we'll assume you don't want it."...ooops...too late.
And of course, before that...it was the 20 "unknown" calls a week from the NRA asking for me to become a member and send money. It took me blasting Mr. Keane on the NRA YouTube channel for the NRA being too cowardly to display their name on caller ID's before I got a straight line to someone that mattered to have my number removed from their database.
I am a member now and have been most of my life...and I 100% believe in what they do for myself and the whole country. But Jeeze Louise...there is a way to do it up front and honorable without appearing like scam artists.
Is there anyone out there who can help this newbie find the time and place Glenn does the keynote? Would prefer to watch on my Roku, but don't think that is going to be possible. It's taken me an hour just to figure out how to get here.... sigh! please someone...

“If Kermit Gosnell had been “available” for President Obama’s mother, she might not have been “punished” with a baby….”
May 4, 2013 at 12:30am
Good. Ted Cruz represents ME, not them. I voted for him to do exactly what he is doing, and it is so refreshing to finally see a Senator represent ME and not his “colleagues” in the corrupt Senate circle. It is about time.

Things that make you go “hmmm”. First we have the Saudi suspect downgraded to bombing victim who seems to have friends in high places. Then one of the Saudi high places says “oh, we warned you”, yadayada. Deflection from the smiling hospital kid with questionable ties/ maybe not ties to the plot by friends in high places to pretend the Saudis were “helping” when somebsaudi, maybe this kid, might actually be involved??
Your question is the first thing I thought of after reading this article.
May 1, 2013 at 12:05pm
Run, Ted, Run! I have met him and liked him a lot, and like him even more since he went to the Senate and actually DID what those of us who elected him wanted him to do. The guy is brilliant- even his liberal professor at Harvard Alan Dershowitz said Cruz was “off the charts brilliant”. I would love to see him as President. Yes, yes. I also like Paul and Ben Carson, not so much Rubio anymore. But I think Ted Cruz might be best of all. The Republicans have an embarrassment of riches to run, the Democrats, just embarrassments.
