I would bet a paycheck that Obama and most other high ranking officials routinely conduct official state business on either private servers or unsecured accounts under false/other names in yahoo or gmail. I mean seriously, If Ms. Lerner @ the IRS was doing it, that corrupt culture is everywhere in this administration. They seem to work under the “CYA/plausible deniability code”.

Absolutely spot-on article!!
I expect the Trumpsters to bring out the long knives again on my comment, but hey, what can you expect with people that follow a cult of personality and act as mindless drones. . .
Like so many lib posters on ABC, I wonder how many who posted here were paid.
Your statement says more about you than any reply could.
sorry - i couldn't tell if you were talking about christians, trumpsters or republicans when you said the phrase 'mindless drones that follow a cult of personality.'
I don't get the difference - you built this party to be a cult of personality - and you're christians... you've always been mindless drones.
I agree, especially with the comment about the strumpets. The Republicans now have their very own set of screeching SJW types.
The comment section at a certain news site (I won’t name it, but it rhymes with Pop Tart) has become unreadable. Every political thread (and a lot of threads that aren't) is hijacked by the Strumpets and filled with their version of ‘four legs good, two legs bad’. You can’t find the actual discussion thread though all of the shrill Pro-Trump (or vicious anti-Cruz) chatter. It’s the same process as the lefty protesters who screech and scream throughout a speech attempting to silence anyone with whom they disagree. The Trump people even started flagging comments for removal that rebutted their talking points.
They are just like the lefties, except worse because they should know better.
The scariest part is that, just like the SJWs, they consider their fascist tactics to be a positive. They think they win an argument by flooding a thread with a hundred variations of the same talking point to silence any disagreement. On a couple of occasions, it was so bad that I thought I had somehow been diverted into HuffPo.
I have no idea what I’m going to do in this election (other than never vote for Princess Felony), but in closing, I’ll paraphrase another line from Animal Farm (for a socialist, Orwell definitely understood the Marxist mind).
They looked from Hillary to Trump, and back to Hillary, and they could not tell the difference.
sure takes one to call one. The Never Trump motto will be
“We hated America so much we shot it in the head for spite”
Being pure is noble, but winning is everything and you can’t change things if you don’t win.
READ that AGAIN whiners : YOU CAN”T CHANGE ANYTHING IF YOU DON’T WIN.
Now what will you do ? Beck, Walsh, Will, etc?
Go crying to mommy or go home and get your gun and com back and shoot us all?
Name calling seldom resonates with readers.
I don't carry a knife unless I'm in the kitchen and I'm not a "Trumpster". I will however voraciously support and vote for Donald Trump. His ascension is explained here; https://qcnightalkerblog.wordpress.com/2016/05/06/explaining-the-donald-trump-phenomena/
I find it particularly hypocritical that Nevertrumpsters point to Mr. Trump's moral failings yet give the GOP establishment a pass for 2 million dead in 15 years of war that profits GOP cronies, failure to stop Obama in ANY of his socialist agenda, and most disgusting, the 2008 crash and ensuing TRILLIONS given to bail out their Wall Street buddies while we suffered. Sorry if I have no sympathy for the likes of Kristol, Beck etc. who told us to hold our nose and vote for McCain and then Romney. "We got this guys!". Yea. You "got it". We, the people have been SCREWED while you and the GOP elite go along with EVERYTHING that Barry has "ordered". You have done NOTHING to help us; no repeal ACA, NO tax reform (as promised), NADA. NOTHING. Yet, you're surprised when we support someone who threatens YOU, Mr. "True Conservative GOP"! What a crock. Trumps brought more people to GOP than last 2 candidates combined. You're leaving us? Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out and after the election, don't even THINK about getting back in. You're done. Finished. Kaput. Adios. See ya see ya wouldn't want to be ya. And 100 more juvenile, vacuous slurs. You certainly deserve much worse.

I agree 100%. I’m disappointed that America as a whole has been dumbed-down to the point that Americans can be so easily fooled by common liars and thieves.
Mark my words: I will NEVER, EVER vote for Trump. I am completely DONE holding my nose and voting for the lessor of two evils. I will write-in Cruzand vote with a clear conscience and be able to tell my kids and grandkids that I did the only thing I could to save the republic.
I've been saying I'm voting for Cruz whether he's the nominee or not. Not that it makes any difference here in Maryland :/
I'm not a Trumpbot, but with Trump we have a chance of a conservative Judge on the Supreme court.. if you don't wote for Trump, you're voting for Hillary! Think about it!
Dance with the devil you know!
why would you go write in a vote for no reason, just to clog up voter lines and be an annoying progressive ?
There is no way Trump appoints a conservative SCOTUS. It wishful thinking.
MattCaz; I don't know which devil your talking about. I do know Hillary and she is a devil I know, if its the devil I don't know then I admit I don't know Trump, and I don't think many do. So I will be writing in a vote for my conscience and my soul. I will not sell out to any devil and Cruz/Fiorina will be my write in.
Now the media can release the Kraken on Trump and the skeletons will be flooding out of the cupboards. It is going to be an interesting few months for the Trump defenders :-)
Did W Bush with Roberts? Did Reagan with Kennedy and O'Connor?
You took the words right out of my mouth ConservaTEA. For the first time since Reagan we finally had a Constitutional Conservative run, but the fake conservatives threw it away for a reality show Leftist. I too will never vote for their Trojan Horse, I will proudly be writing in Cruz on my ballot and know that in our countries last election I did the right thing to try to save it. Now we have several months to increase our stores of ammo, food and water for the upcoming war.
I too will vote with my principles. I don't give up easily, voting for trump you will get the same if you vote for hillary. It's one in the same folks. The establishment put if out there and the trump voters fell right in the trap.. Gullible!!!!
Hey masterkey, you realize there are tons of other things/candidates to vote for on Election Day, right? Or are you truly a low info voter?
I am with you brother. #writeincruz
You will never have a GOP managed government again if you allow Clinton to get elected. While Trump might reneg on some of his promises, we KNOW what Clinton will do. That means a communist and activist Supreme Court with a clear leftist majority that views the court as a super legislature. That means amnesty by executive fiat, if not from the RINO legislature. That means in four years a Dark Blue Texas, Virginia, Florida as the illegals then start voting as a block for the Democratic Socialists. If Clinton is elected the only way you see a conservative in a high political office again is if the entire house of cards collapse and we have to rebuild the nation from scratch. I want to keep my freedoms without needing to resort to bloodshed. I would have preferred Cruz, but I will take a loud mouth jerk maybe, over the sure thing fascist that is waiting for us in November. Wise up. Don't think they won't label the Tea Party as a terrorist organization.. who would we cry to? The courts?
Vote for Hillary .....
Hillary is a thousand times more dangerous than Obama could ever think of. He didn't care. He made it to the White House, and got to play lots of golf and travel with the worlds biggest personal jet. Hillary actually cares. She cares about her perverted communist agendas. She has he connections to make it happen. If you think you will have a clear conscience writing in Cruz, remember, you are voting for her. If you want her as president, no problem, but to say you will write in Cruz for a clear conscience won't happen, sorry.
you'll tell your kids you did nothing to stop the clintons?
I haven't commented much here, but I totally agree with TEA. I can not and will not vote for either Clinton, Sanders, or Trump! My hope is that Ted Cruz will run independently of the Republicans, because he still has my vote no matter what and I know I can convince others to write his name in on the ballot in November. If Ted is still willing to accept the presidency when the silent majority of Americans would write his name in, I hope he would humbly accept the call. I WILL NOT MOCK GOD NOR VIOLATE MY CONSCIENCE BY VOTING FOR THOSE WHO ACTIVELY SEEK TO DESTROY OUR DIVINELY INSPIRED CONSTITUTION! I encourage Ted Cruz to run independently, otherwise I will write his name in and I encourage all my fellow Americans to do so as well, for the future of our families, and our liberty!
Youll be lying to your kids and grandkids then! You could have voted for a man that is TELLING YOU HE WILL FIX THESE ISSUES…but you don’t like his attitude? You don’t like his business ways? You think he has an ego? Well F**K YOU! YOU have an ego! You want to auto elect Hillary so you can say you voted for YOUR guy. You are an idiot! Anyone else that is reading this that feels like this guy…F**K YOU TOO! Save me from telling you later in another reply.
You people are idiots! The only viable result of not voting trump is electing Hillary….period! You are gonna do that to prove what point again? Humble yourself…your guy didn’t win. He was my guy too. Hes out. Better vote against Hillary…even it that means the GOP nom is an oak tree…vote for the tree.
The MORONS on here with their ideological Im gonna show you crap need ass whippings.
I'll take a philanderer over an adulterer any day.
How about a murderer over an adulterer? If you think the skirt of Hillary is not stained with the blood of those brave americans during the attack at benghazi, you will never be able to recognize the truth, even when it's presented to you in plainness. John 8:43-45
I'm completely heartbroken that Ted Cruz had to leave the race. It is pathetic the two choices we now have in November.
The first time I voted was in 1984 for Ronald Reagan’s second term, and I remember how hopeful and proud I was to be an American. I wonder if I or my children and someday my grandchildren will ever feel like that again?
Tuesday night I came home from work and my husband looked heartbroken. I said, “He lost Indiana, didn’t he?” My husband let me know it was much worse. “He has also suspended his campaign.”
I went in the other room and had to fight back tears. My hope is in the Lord, not man. But I was crying for this country who doesn’t want Christian values. And I’m afraid the time is very soon when God will withhold his preserving Hand over this nation who for so long put Him first. The majority of the people seem to want a king? They may very well get one, but not a Godly king. Today I’m still in mourning for our nation.
Cruz donors are now funding Hillary. should that tell you something?
Hillary is now tied with Trump in key swing states after Trump gained 12 points in mere days. should that tell you something?
Cruz had the outsourcing queen as his VP. should that tell you something?
Cruz said all the right things. but once in office, he'd pulled a Paul Ryan and do the opposite immediately and without remorse.
you were fooled.
Beck knows this or Beck is so far gone that he can't see straight.
either way: you are being had.

The key word there is “statesman” We need more statesman and fewer politicians.
February 19, 2016 at 11:23am
Anything Trump feels is a threat to him, he goes on a mindless, pre-teen personal attack in order to shut down the person. Do we really want a “dear leader” who acts this way toward everyone??
If Trump were to win the Presidency, I predict that at the end of 4 years, he will be so un-hinged that we would outwardly lose the support of all our major allies. Electing Trump would turbo-charge the destruction of our foreign policy and relationships that Obama has begun and he would be hated by most within the USA. Cronyism will skyrocket and no one , from the senate, congress to the local police will work with him.
I truly believe Obama wants Trump. . .
We get the government we deserve. America as a whole has turned into the biggest bunch of superficial pop-culture worshiping, mind-numbed IDIOTS in the world. I would say that 75% of Americans have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how good we have it here in this country all due to that small document called the Constitution and adherence to it by our forefathers. . . This generation is blowing it through arrogance and ignorance taught in our failing schools. I HATE what men like Obama and Trump do do my beloved country.
There is absolutely NO WAY I will vote for Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’ll be the first time in my life I sit out of a Presidential election if he’s the nominee. . .
Sitting out, I humbly suggest, allows the media to insert their own narrative for why you sat out. Don't give them the pleasure of writing your story. Vote for a candidate either in a third party that espouses your beliefs or write your candidate in. I personally am challenging folks to just write Ted Cruz in if Trump fools enough folks to get the nomination.
 February 16, 2016 at 4:48pm
Kanye West is about the biggest JOKE. How someone who has been as successful (amazing) in “music” can wind-up 60+ million in debt just shows what a superficial MORON he is.
BTW,. . . he happens to be black. Color doesn’t matter d!psh!t; based on your actions, I’d think you were an idiot no matter what color you were.
 February 15, 2016 at 10:34am
Forget what the candidates say for a minute. We all know these two are going to speak out their back sides. What does this say about this congregation that they would invite Hillary and Bernie into a supposed house of God so that they can freely tell their lies??
This doesn’t sound like any “Baptist” church I ever attended. . . Just sayin’. . .
Reminds me of when Obama sat in that church of Rev. Wright.
 January 20, 2016 at 11:40am
As Reagan said, Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction” (or something close to that). i only retired from the U.S. Navy 9 years ago and I can tell you with absolute certainty that (1) the ship these sailors were assigned to would have NEVER allowed then to be taken and (2) the Lt. would have NEVER made a public apology upon capture. You’re trained not to. It’s an absolute disgrace what this administration has turned the military into. . .

So Ann, my daughter who was born over-seas when I was in the military is NOT a citizen?? I have a “Consular Report of Birth Abroad” cert (which IS a valid birth certificate) that I got at the U.S. Embassy is not valid?? Birthright citizenship means that FROM BIRTH you are a U.S. citizen by virtue of having one or both parents as U.S. citizens NO MATTER WHERE YOU MADE THE GRAND ENTRANCE AT BIRTH.
Is there really any surprise that a sarcastic, condescending, know-it-all, New York Republican is doing the bidding of Trump?? Go away Ann!! Pull your head out of your @$$ and come back when you actually have your facts straight. Or not. . .
Not a fan of Ann, but man, who the heck is questioning your daughter's citizenship?

If I was in charge, I would have sunk the vessel that fired the missiles. I’m retired Navy and spent the better part of 20 years on carriers. 1500 yards is the equivalent of shooting across your bow. This was merely a test to see what we would do. If you want more of this, you do exactly what Obama has done; NOTHING. If you want it to stop, you use unequivocal force and show the enemy you mean business.
Iran is a terrorist state. This is the same type of “testing” that terrorists use to gauge our reactions so they can formulate and refine their next bigger move. It will be worse next time; I guarantee you.
 December 27, 2015 at 8:10pm
The ONLY people I have ever known to show racist tendencies have been black. Blacks need to let go of the crutch of “racism”. It’s only used as an excuse for bad behavior and underachieving.
 November 28, 2015 at 2:30pm
Islamic extremists use guns – Obama says it’s the individuals that pull the trigger who is responsible.
U.S. Citizen uses a gun – Obama says it’s the GUN that is responsible.

Why would republicans even agree to having one of their debates on CNBC, MSNBC, CNN or any one of the loony left-wing “new” organizations??
These debates with communist moderators always end the same; “Gotcha politics” that leaves the Republicans looking dumb and the moderators high-fiving each other. they ask loaded attack questions that are backed by mostly untrue “facts” and then give our candidates 30 seconds to defend themselves or conservatism against utter B.S. All the while, knowing that left leaning viewers are going to believe whatever they hear and never do any of their own research.
It does make you wonder what was going through Rince Prebus's head when the GOP approved the panel and format. Was his indignation fueled by the need to obscure that fact? All the initial questions were meant to demean the front running anti-establishment candidates; coincidence?
It offers a Rove'esque establishment explanation for more than Jeb's misguided attack on Rubio and his response to the "fantasy football question" which for a fleeting moment sounded substantive ... until Chris Christie rightly denounced the question as unbecoming a presidential debate.
The debate showed Republican Party has 15 candidates, all of whom are superior to the Democrat slate of candidates. It also contained moments where comments were finally directed at Ms Clinton.
The MSM and the Democrat Party appear to be under the assumption that congenital liar is a protected disability under the ADA and "all reasonable accommodation must be made ...." has been mandated upon the American People.
Will somebody please take away his pen.
Conserv: That's a good question respective to the why and wherefore? Today there's another tangent. What we witnessed last night will go down in history as the biggest epic fail of a totally biased Left wing media, that even got through to the drones. This was big. It was VERY big! In my lifetime I've seen many historical moments. This was one of the biggest! God Bless Conservatives!
September 3, 2015 at 10:27am
“Christian terrorists”. . . Really??
I think this is the first time I have ever seen or heard those two words used together,. . . EVER!! They must be on to something if the Muslim terrorist sympathizers are complaining about it.
How is using religion like this any different than the claims of ISIS and their use of religion?
 August 13, 2015 at 11:32am
The next group of folks that get into office need to ensure these corrupt deviates are held to account. One of the reasons this corruption snowballs is that the next administration “forgives” the previous bad actors in a gesture so the country can “move-on”. This just re-inforces to those left that this type of corruption is acceptable.
People need to go to jail like they used to do.
Wishful thinking I know, but I’ve gotta have dreams right??
Well, it doesn't mean we have to defend her anymore. She doesn't deserve protection. Since she wants to split up the country. Let her-side defend, protect and die for her. I that is the way she wants it. Let everyone knows how she feels. Lets see how many are willing to walk the walk of her beliefs. Rather than the people she deliberately attacked. And that is exactly what she did. She used those peoples taxes, and resources give to her position. To attack them. And do harm and violence. And she should be treated accordingly in/as self defense. Especially when they abuse the position. People no longer have to respect them. Nor consider them as being in authority anymore. They lost that authority when they violated the position.
See, people make this false assumption that they own the citizens body and life. The answer to that is "NO". They answer and work for us all. Or they lose that right and any protection. As the administration said.
They didn't build this. We did! – Let the word go out. And pass the word around. That if they abuse their position. People will remember in kind., when there may be a need to defend them. Its called Equal Opportunity and Outcome.
Especially since we know during the same time she was doing all this. Odds are, the illegals being found was required to pay back, or pay any revenue. While they went after citizens.
 August 11, 2015 at 8:41pm
Who in the hell is in the State Dept. saying that it’s “O.K. to hold top secret material in some layer’s office?? Are you freakin’ kidding me?? How dumb do the people in this administration think we are?? (don’t answer that)
There are very specific rules and procedures for the handling of classified materials and NONE of those procedures include some layer’s desk drawer or even his safe. That statement from the State Dept. is as stupid as the claim by Hillary that her server was safe “. . .because the Secret Service guards the house.”
The U.S. currently has Special Forces operating in Syria, just like Britain.
Oh you want U.S. troops in Syria? I'm glad the SAS was able to stop the beheading, but I also agree with detractors that this was made public for propaganda purposes. There are those who would love to see thousands of U.S. troops and others in a full scale war fighting for people who secretly hate our guts and would turn against us in a heartbeat once it's to their advantage. Kinda sounds familiar doesn't it? No thanks. Take the guys we have there now out of there. No more foreign wars for select interests.
