I bet Israel does a fence correctly…with machine guns to k!ll offenders in the DMZ. No sense building a wall for fence that people do not respect. Ask how the Germans did it in 1961. This is the level of commitment America must make if building a wall for fence to prevent interlopers from entering a nation of entitlements, if we are unwilling to do what it takes to force people to respect the fence/wall, might as well not build it.

Why can people claim their eyes will bleed and their face will melt if they drive down the street and see a cross?…yet I am forced to see rainbows everywhere? This is not MY AMERICA anymore……
It's OUR America, not yours. We all have to be accommodating

“Let the Military Do their Jobs”….really?
I was deployed to the Mid-East four times as a Paratrooper of the 82nd Airborne Division post 9-11. I always wondered why WE had to adhere to Rules of Engagement and Escalation of Force limitations…just to minimize civilian casualties of a people unwilling to fight for their own freedom from tyranny?
I am not aware that Muslim Extremists are part of a standing militia, I am not aware they signed the Geneva or Hague Conventions…..I am not aware that they have an agreement for the repatriation of POW’s upon cessation of hostilities….nor am I aware that they have an agreement for Red Cross inspections/visits of POW’s (the latter two points are mute when the enemy is beheading POW’s.).
Since Muslim Extremists fail to meet any of the above criteria and routinely use civilians as shields, they should be rendered as much “courtesy” on the modern field of battle, from professional American Soldiers as one renders when stepping on a cockroach. If enough innocent civilians are k1lled in the process they should begin helping us fight our common enemy….much like we defeated Germany and Japan. We also have to be wiling to conduct operations anywhere our intelligence leads us, regardless of borders and treaties.
You fail to see the irony in your comment. Take Afghanistan. We attacked them for what? They didn't attacked us, nor were they involved in the 9/11 attacks; that was the Saudis, the ones we did not attack. We even supported the Taliban with money and weapons right up until 9/11. We wanted Bin Laden, true enough, but they were willing to hand him over to an Islamic court for extradition (because we did not have an extradition treaty with them); nothing different from what we've done in the past. But we had to attack Afghanistan because everyone bought into the bullshit that was being sold. So we attacked a nation we knew nothing about, tortured and killed scores of civilians in the process, including women and children, and have done so for years with no real agenda other than maintaining control of Iran's eastern border. Actual operations were few, planning was pathetic, and our willingness to actually engage the Afghan people at their level, the level of the village elders, just wasn't acceptable to those in our own ranks who demanded we establish a central government filled with corrupt officials, many of our choosing. What would you expect upon arriving in Afghanistan, that the people would greet you on the streets with flowers and wine like you were liberating Paris? The vast majority in Afghanistan knew nothing of why we were there, and we made it worse by kicking down their doors, disarming them and leaving them defenseless against the Taliban before moving on.

I bet these same “geographically challenged” “students of higher education”, know exactly where to report to attend Socialist Rallies, pro-abortion rallies, gay rights assemblies, etc….because their “dumb-phones” (A.K.A. “smartphones) receive notifications from their”institute of higher learning” as well as all the Socialist Media APPs/sites they are signed up for…FaceBook, Twitter, MSM, Yahoo News, etc.,
Potatoe is an older but still correct spelling of the word more commonly word spelled potato. It turns out that Dan Quail and the young student were both correct in there spellings. The e at the end of potatoe was largely dropped by the end of the 20th century.

I have suggested the “Knapp Initiative” to eliminate “Representation Without Taxation” for years.
Basically, only those who have paid a net income tax of more than $1,200 per year for the three consecutive years prior to a Federal Election, and who have also not received government assistance from any level for food, shelter or other sustenance during the same time period, shall be allowed to vote in any Federal Election.
Perhaps $1,200 is too low. Voters should be financially contributing to the basic functioning of the Federal Government for things such as National Security, National Highways (even urban non-car owners benefit from the highway system as the goods and services they purchase utilize it), etc.
People with “no skin in the game” should not be voting for people who will have authority to legislate over those who are self sustaining.
Exemptions would have to be provisioned for to account for retirees or those living off of investments….but the details could be worked out.

I don’t know about the Securities charges…but what exactly is wrong with providing a product on the free market at prices people/insurance companies are willing to pay? Did anyone force people to purchase his drug at the prices he charged? Did Capitalism get outlawed? He is right, the government is full of imbeciles that we elected…..WE ARE THE IMBECILES.

Who besides Trump can take on Billary AND the MSM media….and win? Bueler?…..Bueler?…..Bueler?
Only Governors, Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs and others with Executive Leadership experience should be allowed to run for POTUS.
Those who should not even be considered are Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State and other low level government functionaries…oh, and Community Organizers (a job I never heard of until 2007).
 February 5, 2016 at 4:51am
To American 7777777
Why does everyone, including yourself, forget to mention that OUR Republican candidate also has to be able to beat the MSM…(now including FNC)? We have to select a candidate who can defeat a $2B funded Democrat and a financially unlimited Left Wing MSM.
So far, only Trump has demonstrated he will not have terms dictated to him by the media (hello…FNC?).
Also, OUR candidate must have proven Executive Leadership experience which rules out those who rule by comittee such as mere Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State (and other low level government functionaries)…oh, and Community Organizers (a job I never heard of until 2007). ONLY Governors, Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs should be allowed to run…people who have had the authority to make autonomous, unilateral decisions to guide an endeavor to meet their vision,,,and be held solely and directly accountable and responsible for success or failure.
cknapp this sounds just like what we have heard the last 2 presidential election cycles with McCain and Romney and in my opinion DJT is more to the left of center. I'm just not totally convinced that DJT is who he says he is. I have seen some of his supports post videos of Obama and say this is how Obama was then and hasn't changed. But DJT gets a pass because why???? I really would like to know. There is soooo much more evidence to prove that he is a liberal democrat than even a moderate republican. I understand people are angry, I'm angry, I understand people are frustrated with congress, I'm frustrated with Congress. However I refuse to let that anger cloud my judgement in selecting the next President

A wall or fence, to be effective, must have a DMZ “k!ll zone”….personnel entering that zone must be shot in order to deter others…otherwise the wall/fence/trench is merely symbolic. Ask the Germans how to do it, they did it right in 1961…Berlin, anyone?
Without an “enforcement zone”, without the will to ensure no one enters the U.S. illegally, building a wall is a waste of my tax payer dollars.
February 1, 2016 at 5:26am
You are WRONG.
I don’t really give a crap about social issues.
I do care when my tax dollars are used to pay for the poor choices people make in life….no condom use, no birth control used, having sex with men who will never own up to Fatherhood, etc….pay for your own damn abortion. Women have as much control over their bodies before conception as they do after…how about some pre-conception control over these women’s bodies? Why does no one ask why these women who want control over their bodies, cannot control their base urges and do some pre-planning before sex?
I do not mind funding health care insurance for things one cannot directly control (cancer…not proven yet, cause vs. effect, even non-smokers end up with lung cancer for example).
Am I the only one to notice that as of yet (0533HRS, 28JAN2016) neither The Blaze or the FNC websites have one article about last nights Trump Event?
I wish the Conservative (if FNC can be called that anymore) media and “experts” could back a single candidate and get someone with an “R” after their name, into the White House.
Oh, my criteria for POTUS?…thank you for asking. To run for POTUS a person must have demonstrable Executive Leadership Experience…such as former: Governors, Military Leaders, CEO’s/Entrepreneurs. NO former: Senators, Members of the House, community organizers, Secretaries of State or other petty functionaries who know only how to rule by committee and have never had the responsibility of solely making autonomous, unilateral decisions.
Look at the blazes own poll of who won the debate last night. I am not sure why the media continues trying to do what it is, including the Blaze. After all this Trump has my vote. I only wish Cruz at the last moment would have not walked on stage and went to the Trump rally. That would have once and for all busted Fox news, and the media in general. I believe he tossed away a great opportunity to really set himself apart.
 January 28, 2016 at 9:40am
I am not sure why so many here view this as Trump being afraid of little “blondie”.
I view this as a LEADER telling the media (seems like even FNC is becoming MSM…why can’t we “R’s” get behind a candidate and WIN THE WHITE HOUSE?…but I digress…) to FO. I view this as a sing of STRENGTH (I know, that intimidates many metro-s3ksuals and other “dubious males”…..).
I like the idea of a LEADER who will teach the MSM (including FNC) to HEAL!!!…nice doggie.
We “R’s” are running against the “D’s” AND the MSM…..telling the media (FNC in this case) to FO is a huge victory for Trump.
When Trump occupies the White House I hope daily press briefings disappear and when he needs to put something out he does it himself, or he only talks to Limbaugh and Savage….just to force the “D’s” to have to get their information from these guys, it would drive the “mouth breathers” insane!
Go Trump Go, Make America Great Again!!!!
 January 27, 2016 at 8:17am
I like a leader who can actually be in a position he can tell any media to FO! I hope Trump can teach the media to “heel”…good doggie!
Republicans have been running against both Democrats and the Media for too long. In my opinion FNC has become the MSM because they cannot support a Republican who can win the General Election, thus preventing a Democrat from occupying the White House…Beck is no help either.
Conservative programming has the power to get a Republican in office by firing up the base….yet squander the power. Personally, if I had power. I would never squander it, I would wield it with aplomb.
 January 27, 2016 at 7:52am
Trump is not scared of Megyn…he can however, afford to select which media personnel he grants his valuable time to, very refreshing.
You won’t see Trump granting interviews to green-lipstick-wearing-bathtub- full-of-milk-and-Cheerios-transvestites.
 January 27, 2016 at 7:47am
I like a leader who can tell the media to FO…..someone needs to teach the media to “heel”….good doggie!!!
No more leaders who talk to people from the media who are “transvestite-green-lipstick-wearing swimming in a bathtub full of milk and Cheerios”. I like the idea of someone who can intelligently select which media personnel to grant time to.
FNC and Beck are missing the boat…start supporting Trump and keep the DemoRats out of the White House!!!!!
You've got to be kidding! We have had a lapdog media now for the last 7 years! Meghan Kelly asked legitimate questions of Trump and he folded like a cheap suit. If he can't hold his own with Kelly and keep his cool, how do you think he would hold up to some of the worlds bad guys? I think people see only what they want to see and Trump represents something that in fact may not exist. His value is framing the concerns that 65% of us have however he has a long ways to go to convince many of us that he really believes the things that he espouses!
Since he appeals to roughly 35% conservatives, 36% moderate R's and 20+/-% D's one must ask, just what does he stand for especially since he said he plans on working with the D's. Seems to be an Establishment Trojan Horse to me!
 January 27, 2016 at 6:32am
Why would you vote for anyone with no Executive Leadership Experience?
The only people who should be running are former: Governors, Military Leaders, CEO’s/Entrepreneurs….not those who only know “rule by committee”.
 January 27, 2016 at 6:30am
I prefer a leader who carefully selects who in the media he talks to instead of a guy who talks to “green lipstick wearing transvestite reporter who swims in a bathtub full of milk and Cheerios”.
If I were POTUS the daily White House Press Briefings would end, and when I needed to put something out I would do it myself…with a select few reporters such as Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Bret Baier. It would drive the Left insane to have to listen to these guys for news.
Controlling the media is exactly what we need, Republicans are running against Democrats AND the media…someone needs to teach the media to “heel”…good doggie!
So....you're fully behind state-run news dissemintation aka Pravda?
I agree with your swipe against Obama choosing the bathtub cheerios person, Between 2 Ferns, etc. SNL is beneath the dignity of the office too.
My beef with your post is because I fully believe Obama dragged the office of presidency down intentionally to get your sort of reaction and bring on state-run media as a result.
Heck, he already controls what comes out, but fails in some cases, such as Benghazi.
 January 26, 2016 at 5:35am
I was thinking munitions to eradicate Muslim Extremist T3rrorists…..silly me.
 January 26, 2016 at 5:30am
..you can’t debate or negotiate with the media, they have nothing to loose. Negotiating with Putin or any Iranian nut-job “leader” who also has many civilian lives at stake, now you have leverage.
January 26, 2016 at 5:28am
Actually, as President, I personally, would in fact select who among the media would be allowed to enter the White House Press briefings, which would be few and far between, not daily. I think I would choose Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Bret Baier. It would drive the Left insane to have to listen to these guys to get their news.
