I watched a tiny bit of the Cruz/Beck Waterloo appearance, and it was even worse than I’d expected. Beck has such a surreal idea of his own importance, spoke longer I understand than the candidate himself, and all you needed to know about that was to look at poor Ted’s face when Glen called him out on the stage. It was really cringe worthy.
But then Beck went one final step too far .. administering the oath of office to a guy who hasn’t even won a primary election yet, and whose eligibility is far from certain. I almost got sick … and by the way guys. The rumpled shirt and jeans look is not for you; neither of you look good in jeans and it’s not working. Phony and a total turn off visually.
The point is I think Beck’s dramatic appearance probably bumped the polls for Trump by 8-10 points. As usual, Beck’s support is the kiss of death for a candidate.
The problem with Ted Cruz,and he has several deal breakers for me, is that he’s really never accomplished anything. I am sick to death of hearing him pronounce how “I introduced legislation to (fill in the blank)” .. and of course that is the last you’ll ever hear about it. He quickly got on the nerves of the old lions in the Senate so that now he is a pariah in their midst .. they won’t lift a finger to help him in any endeavors. How is that statesmanlike or helpful to our country?
And he may think the Canadian birth situation is a nothing burger to voters, but he is definitely wrong. There are many questions that Ted knew could arise about his legality to even run for POTUS, yet he … such a brilliant lawyer … did nothing to get the record set straight. And why are his records sealed?
Too many red flags in Mr. Cruz’s record for me to take him seriously, but adding Glenn Beck to the mix was the last straw for me. I used to be a big Beck fan, but he lost me a long time ago.
You're right Dakota, Trump has accomplished a lot. Helped get Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and many more extreme left wing democrats elected by donating thousands of dollars to their campaigns.
All Cruz did was fight (sometimes alone because of RINOs like Trump) to undo all the things that the left wing politicians have done. (financed by Trump.)
But I'm sure putting in another RINO will fix the problem.
? go run back to 911 truthing because ted means what he says. He told texans his position, and just maybe you cannot handle politicians actually doing what they promised their voters they would do in office. The only man in the senate who did what he promised people he would do.
What kind of track record Trump have….squat….. Emotionally narcissistic and willing to destroy anyone who disagrees with him. You think thats bad enough. Katrina Pierson is a racist black who is his spokesperson, been telling people about her for 5 months here in North Dakota. Some of us taught history and other subjects and alot of socalled republicans are basing support to trump emotionally, not factually. Liberal’s mantra to vote is to appeal to the emotional, not factual, side of arguments.
last point, read this story and tell me you still want him as president if he already knew about peirson’s past, like i did.

This entire episode is so transparently ridiculous, and of course Donald Trump was under no obligation to correct the man in his audience. What is sickening and telling to me is the hysterical outbursts from so-called fair and balanced media reps. Megyn Kelly is no longer on my list of shows or people I’ll watch/trust, and the same goes for Glen Beck. Has Beck actually listened to how he, Stu and Pat sound as they rail on Trump every day? Like jealous little high school girls, and the only time they break with Trump hate is to hit us up for another donation. I am, or was, a Tea Party member, but Glen .. sorry. The petulant temper tantrum Glen threw on air after the meeting in DC was downright cringe worthy. We know the whole reason for it was that he wasn’t given super star treatment. I really can’t listen to Beck anymore cuz he brings me down so much and I’ve had nearly 8 years of that! Trump makes me laugh and have hope again. What’s so bad about that?

How much do I love Trey Gowdy! Been watching this man for several years, and I love him! Go Trey, go! I understand he wants to go back to SC and resume his life, but we need people of his caliber and quality so desperately. We want him to crush Lindsey Graham and get him out of DC .. I hope Trey Gowdy will remain a national presence, and South Carolina is lucky to have him.

It’s a felony in the state of North Carolina to take a dog off an owner’s property .. I work in dog rescue and we have to be very careful, even in the case of an obviously neglected dog, that county animal control officers contact the owner or seize the dog. The neighbor that sawed off a lock on a gate and took the dog and then bragged about it would be facing charges in NC.

Yes, Gov McCrory was elected by a wide margin of voters to finally get some responsible leadership back into our state government. From the moment he took the oath, the liberals in the state, led by the Raleigh News & Observer, have lambasted every single thing he was elected to do — including Moral Monday demonstrations at the Capitol screaming about everything from voter ID to tightened abortion regulations to teachers’ pensions. Many of these demonstrators are state employees and the average income of these downtrodden was learned to be $87,000! Poor guys. But through it all Pat and his Republican House & Senate have persevered, and we are hopeful that conservative leadership will bring about some healthy change in the state.
Yes, and it will many years to undo what 16 years of Jim Hunt and his Durham minions created.
Now if we could only close our northern boarder to the NY and NJ liberals who keep sneaking over the boarder with their welfare checks.

Why oh why did Geraldo think this was necessary or even interesting? It is downright pathetic for him to think anybody wanted a look at his naked body. Seriously pathetic. What grains of respect I may have ever had for him have dribbled thru the hourglass.

Wait … I thought the grand argument for gay marriage is that homosexuals are “born that way” .. nothing they can do about it, the decision was made at conception and not because of societal pressures once they were born. If this isn’t brainwashing a pliable soul, I don’t know what is. If this little girl decides her calling is to be a lesbian and “love other girls” and marry one, I say fine. But what this so-called mother is doing is something very different and in my opinion, very wrong. Kids are confused about their own sexuality at various stages of their development — I have seen it in my own family. I believe a parent’s role is to be aware and sensitive to their own particular child’s needs, but not to try to steer them into a lifestyle they may not really want. Good grief, what are we coming to!!

For heaven’s sake … what was considered shocking about what Krauthammer said? It’s obvious and blatant: Obama truly has no compass that guides him. I don’t think the man has any clue about morality or decency. He is an organizer who sees this country and its sheeple as crops to be harvested. Will it all go into his personal pocket? A lot of it will, but more importantly, to the corrupt thugs who have surrounded and groomed him since he was smoking dope in Hawaii. It’s all out there to be seen and they aren’t even attempting to cover anymore. Why is he still able to raise large amounts of money by flying in and giving one of his canned speeches? Fear. Pure and simple. The big ones are fearful of Obama payback, particularly since most of them have already tasted the forbidden fruit Obama has doled out to them. It is nauseating to see every single day the out of control corruption that has taken over our country. It’s always been there, of course, except Obama has made it politically correct. Nothing will ever happen to those who are caught and arrested! Nothing! And with that as our model, many good people are giving up the fight. We must pray for our country as the day of reckoning will be unlike anything we have ever seen.

Glen, bless your heart! So many of us know your pain and are thinking of you and the family today. When we had to let our darling Gage go, I did not know the human body could hold so many tears, and just when I thought I was getting a grip on it, I’d start crying again. Even today four years later with his ashes sitting on our bookshelf , I catch myself expecting to see that wonderful white face looking up at me. We loved him so very much and miss him still though we have two other Goldens who are equally treasured. But there will never be another Gage. My last words to him were “Wait for me .. I will see you again.” And he was such a good dog, I know he will be there when I arrive at Rainbow Bridge. Gage will introduce Victor to all the fun spots at the Bridge, they are both playful pups again, no more pain or sickness, each dog at Rainbow Bridge waiting for their special person to arrive. So our boys are fine and that was the last gift we could give them.

Here’s what I want to know: How in the blazes are all these Muslims being allowed to come here, settle in, get jobs, etc? We are told that legal immigration is getting tougher and more expensive and takes years to accomplish. In my neighborhood one whole section is comprised of British, German, Dutch ex-pats .. beautiful homes, well tended, good neighbors. They have told me in some cases they’ve waited 20 years to be allowed to move here! But the house across from me, after sitting vacant for some time, was purchased by a Muslim couple .. wife wears the burka, etc. They held a couple of socials where the yard was full of women wearing burkas. (Imagine how thrilled I was to see that.) And yes, their 20 something year old son lives there too. I went over to introduce myself initially, but they wouldn’t even talk to me. Now they are gone again and house back on the market. But where did they come from, how did they get in, why are they here? They are literally everywhere in Raleigh, NC. Why??

I’ve just sent a blistering e-mail to our esteemed senior Senator from North Carolina, Richard Burr, for making a very bad choice last night. He attended Obama’s cozy little dinner, but was not one of the few from that group to cross the street afterwards and go back to support Rand Paul’s effort on the Senate floor. The party lines were officially and vividly drawn last night: McCain, Lindsey, Burr and others are on the Karl Rove side of the GOP and Cruz, Paul, Lee and others have split from the same old RINO directives. It’s time .. Haven’t heard a peep from Burr in a long time and when I do, he’s snuggling with Obama? Won’t vote for or support Burr again.
February 7, 2013 at 7:01am
This isn’t an attack ad, whether Rove’s group did it or not! It is getting out ahead of them a bit since Judd would have an obvious advantage, even in a conservative state. They would dearly love to replace GOP congressmen with Obamabots in southern states. Just what we need: another Hollywood liberal in Washington.

This little punk is revolting, and I caught the seething disdain for people as well. I agree he is an accident waiting to happen. I contrast this dope with the attitude of the wonderful Chick-Fil-A restaurants in my city. The first time I went to a nearby location, I was stunned by how polite, happy, courteous entire staff was. I guess we have become accustomed to being treated like nonentities in most fast food and other restaurants. I must say, however, that the counter people at the chick-Fil-A were not kids; they were older adults and seemed to genuinely appreciate my business. I located the manager, thanked him for a first class experience with his restaurant and said I’d be back. I have been many times. I don’t know if this is specific to this particular location or the entire chain, but I suspect most of their locations are the same. It made a very big impression on me!

Those of us who were desperate to replace Obama, who donated money, blogged, enightened at every opportunity … proudly cast our vote for Romney/Ryan not because Obama is half black or a Democrat but because he was a breathtaking liar and corrupt to the tips of his toes. We have been forced to watch the “transformation” of our country, which Michelle Obama promised us, for four brutal years. It became my personal mission and I believed the American people would not stand by and allow our country to fall to a dictator. That is why so many of us were stupefied to see early vote totals coming in on Nov 6. This could not be! Those precious swing states were apparently the sole focus of the Dem machine; they didn’t need to concentrate on voter turnout or changing ballots in all the states: only in Pennsylvania, OHIO, Florida and I’m sure nobody who participated in acts of treason from those states will be reading The Blaze. It has long been said that America could not be invaded and taken from the outside — only from the inside, and that has been the progressive plan for over 50 years. I have feared a civil war here ever since Obama and his thugs took over Washington, and all of the signs are there. Arm yourselves, stockpile food and essentials, be alert and aware because a revolt is coming. Americans can take losing with grace, but not because of cheating. That we do not stand for, and it’s obvious this was not a fair election.
Diane, I love your comments! You obviously know what you’re talking about and I could not agree more. I shudder to think what the next four years will be like, but self sufficiency will be the name of the game so that there is someone left to rebuild once the country has been torn completely down. Obama and his thugs will not rest until we all look like Detroit or California.

We knew all the blacks would vote for more Obama lies and probably Hispanics, but the thing that amazes me is all the single white women who still love the Liar in Chief! For example I volunteer with a woman who is a dreamy eyed Obama supporter, and here is her situation: She is 57 years old, weighs about 250 lbs, lives with her two big dogs in an apartment, and freely admits that her only life is her job (some type of bookkeeping work), her volunteer work, and visits to her aged parents. Now if/when her company cuts back or closes its doors forever, who do you think will be laid off? The chances of her ever finding gainful employment again are remote. So why did she vote for this liar, and why did so many other equally stupid white women??? And she is not alone among the many women I know. I simply do not get it .. every revelation about Obama and his corruption rolls off their backs like nothing. The first time I caught Obama in an obvious lie was the beginning of the end for me, and that was a long time ago.
November 7, 2012 at 8:22am
And what, pray tell, did the liberal machine win last night? The death of America it appears to me. We have had four years to see how Obama will rule us, and the next four are too scary to fully comprehend. The bottom line is that 50% of this nation is supporting the other 50%, and contraception, gay marriage and abortion have nothing whatever to do with the price of bread and milk. When the working 50% have given up and tossed in their cards — as many will do now that the future is clear — the non-working 50% will stop getting their government money. Simple as that. I have been anticipating civil war in the country for a very long time, and am afraid the time has arrived. Pray for our country, be prepared, stay safe out there.
dakotas here too . And Im also worried of a civil war. This country is as divided as our first civil war or very close to it. Im scared for Isreal. I'm scared for my family. This is NOT good
October 24, 2012 at 11:10am
This is beyond all reason. I demand that Congress come back to Washingon and continue the hearings Issa is holding on Libya and the horror story it actually is. Obama’s thugs aren’t even trying to hide it!! I want jail time as Glenn suggests this morning. Pray for our nation!

I watched the hearings in entirety on C-SPAN yesterday and have several questions, but here’s one: I believe it was the woman rep from State Dept who read what happened that night as related in subsequent reports and as followed in real time from Washington. She said that when the diesel smoke fires swallowed up the main building where Ambassador Stevens was, he, another man and a military escort tried to get out a bathroom window. The escort did manage to get outside, but saw immediately that Amb and the second man were not with him. Escort went back into the smoke-filled embassy to search for them, emerged again and went back in with additional help. The next time they heard about the Ambassador was to learn his body was at the Benghazi hospital. Now what happened to Stevens during those one to two hours? Please remember that there are news reports that Ambassador had been smothered and sodomized when his body was collected.
