So Bernie Sanders' surge and Hillary's struggles, at least 2 other Dem candidates and maybe another (Biden) waiting in the wings isn't a sign that the Dems aren't exactly united?

So has anyone else noticed that Anne Coulter is nothing more than a mainstream establishment republican shill? How anyone believes this woman is conservative is mind boggling to me.
If she is conservative, conservatives are EXACTLY what the left thinks they are.

Do you know anyone from the middle east? They revere children. Children are a status symbol to the women there. Have you seen the heinous videos ISIS has produced having young boys behead people? They are showing us that for a reason. As if to say, “Look at what a child can do.” It’s disgusting that they would do that do a child, but at least they don’t kill the child before it can even fend for itself.

Unfortunately all it takes is some of them.

david, apparently you do, except in this case, only if those civil rights are guaranteed by the first amendment. Marriage is not a right it is an optional path in life. If you are not born with it, it is not a right. You were born with a conscience and the right to that is what has been dealt a serious blow today.
The majority of Americans have voted in every state that this issue has been brought up in to define marriage as between 1 man and 1 woman and yet here we are with homosexual marriage legal. That is why I say that your vote no longer matters. This is the very definition of Judicial activism.
Those who want to see government replace God/Natural law are the only ones who are happy about this ruling.
 June 26, 2015 at 11:09am
Please show me where the constitution says anything about marriage. I’d love to see you find it because it’s not there. That means this is a state’s decision to make. Every state that has taken up this issue (37 of them) has voted in the same way: Marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman.
I would much rather have the government stay out of it entirely, but to your point, THIS was certainly not a win for the Constitution.
 June 26, 2015 at 10:56am
Unfortunately thom you are right. This is what democracy looks like which is exactly why I’m glad we weren’t living in a democracy. Seems that we are now though. Now what the majority want is not as important as what those who make the majority of the noise want. Rather than having civil dialogue and discussion between a group of rational people we have the hateful minority and their professional protesters forcing their will on everyone else.
This is exactly what democracy looks like and it is sad to see that the republic has gotten here.
You don't get to vote on the civil rights of other Americans. History should have made that clear after Loving v. Virginia.
Now is our move and here it is.
Now we need to change our marriage to a new definition to be called CELESTIAL UNIONS.
We will not demand the governemnt sactions it and we should all give up our current government sactioned marriage and any government implication that come with it including tax status.
Mass divorces to take place and new Celestial Unions to be issued by churches only!.
We’ll let the gays have the marriage title
They basically told every God fearing person:
"YOUR GOD DOES NOT EXIST. WE HOLD DOMINION OVER YOU."
Is there any reason, to follow their laws in this country anymore?
People ultimately voted for Obama and his appointed judges are the ones who put this through. 9 people in black robes aren’t qualified to redefine marriage. Free people should not need a license from the government to get married in the first place.
The real war on Christianity has now officially begun. From this will come Godaphobia and you watch as four things take place
1) Churches that refuse to perform homosexual marriages will now have their 501c3 tax exempt status taken away and will close their doors because they can no longer function as a church
2) Law suits will be filed on mass against pastors who refuse to condone or perform same sex marriages thus resulting in mass amounts awarded in damages thus shutting down churches
3) Fake satanic worldly churches accepting this and thriving (wolves in sheep’s clothing in mass)
4) Persecution upon Christianity become in this country becoming violent and with jail time
Off topic, but your comment reminds me of something.
After the last election, my brother in Colorado got his ballot delivered back to him. Something on his ballot drew the attention of a Republican official. They asked if it was his signature - it was not. Someone on the inside took his ballot out of the box, trashed the real one which he delivered himself, then changed it and signed it. His votes were thrown out that year. Election fraud IS VERY REAL and some of it is happening in the government offices - and obliviously the corrupt person on the inside was a Democrat.
His/her handwriting was terrible too. LOL
For sure everyone should know the three prunes voted yes.
Roberts on Same Sex case:
"But this court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in dissent.
Roberts on Obamacare:
The majority opinion reasoned that the law itself was poorly written, and so the court must look to Congress' intent -- rather than the specific language in the law itself.
"Congress wrote key parts of the Act behind closed doors, rather than through 'the traditional legislative process,'" Roberts wrote.
He's an inconsistent two-faced liar.
You cannot deicde someone else life get over it
Thank God my life is more than half over. Don't want to be around in 40 years.
This paves the way for the legal persecution and prosecution of all faiths that do not recognize GM. Any church the will not perform theses perversions can and will be sued into submission. If they somehow survive the legal tsunami that will inevitably come, then the State can revoke their charity status and donations will dry up. When churches no longer can supply needed services in their communities who will pickup the slack? The State and so naturally the money that used to go to the churches goes to the State in the form of higher taxes to pay for the increased burden.
Down goes freedom of Religion in the former United States of America.
Welcome to the State Of America where you must conform or be cast out!
Geez Blaze you think the Headline on the home page could be any bigger font? Please someone hit the reset button on this country. It's done, we are losing more and more everyday and it's time to restart this mess.
Thank you progressives, the country is over.
Constitution wins, bigotry loses.
Sick and twisted generation. There may be pain in the night, but the joy comes in the morning because every knee shall bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Brothers and sisters, it is simply the dark hours that God has ordained and foretold. May we continue to be beacons of light and love, not fear. Perfect love casts out fear, so if you have fear, you do not have love.
But discriminating against Christians: Legal.
Here's my surprised face: =I
It's official, you can't vote away the rights of others.
Finally, we have equality in America!
Part of being a mature adult is accepting when you're wrong and learning from it. You guys were wrong on this. You can't claim the court has no legitimacy because it doesn't agree with you
They did not count ever until the SCOTUS ruled on them. Jim Crow, separate but equal and many other so called 'LAWS" were shot down.
One good thing -- at least now there is a clear difference between the 2 parties. The usual obfuscation and lies don't hold a candle to what the Supreme Court ruling has just accomplished on behalf of the Democrat Party. Charges of war on women, racism and the desire to have dirty air and water won't fly anymore. Voters will have a different reason to vote from now on.
Correct Darth - It is still a sin and they can't change that.
This is when States start to consider implementing the 10th amendment.
PRIESTS AND MINISTERS WILL GO TO PRISON IF THEY REFUSE TO PERFORM HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGES.
It is not any surprise is it. Priests were imprisoned in Russia, China and NAZI Germany. Now the US. Many Catholic Priests are old and will not live long in prison. Is the that plan?
Next up, polygamy and incest between "consenting adults."
NOW you understand WHY they have "Jade helm 15" ...Up and RUNNING.!
This was all preplanned.!
Worse: 5 people--unelected, operating from D.C, with lifetime tenure, some bordering on mental infirmity--are making decisions for everyone everywhere. I've noticed increasingly we are going to one standard, a national standard, advanced by small demographics but given disproportionate weight due to location: urban areas.Darth: I realized my vote didn't matter when the bailout was passed...after the Congressional switchboard blew from those opposed calling in. Hence, the Tea Party was formed.
True, our votes no longer matter, which is why the Second Amendment matters so much now.
25-30 years ago, I read a fascinating article by a prominent scholar in which he referenced ancient Jewish historical records that indicated that anciently, gay marriage had been legalized then, too. This scholar was not Jewish, but he mentioned these ancient Jewish histories. It was right before the floods came in Noah’s time!
Prepare for the judgments of God! They’re coming!
For those of you who may scoff from your large and spacious building, remember this. I/we will prepare! You won't! You'll be the foolish virgin!
Personally - I don't care where you stick your ugly parts.... I am a Libertarian. (USED to be a REPUBLICAN until the Republicans let me down repeatedly)
But don't call it "MARRIAGE" -- call it a UNION or some such thing....
AND STOP SHOVING IT IN MY FACE!!!
You can stick your ugly parts wherever you want but keep it to yourself please...
“But you, Belshazzar, his son, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this. Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. You had the goblets from his temple brought to you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from them. You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways. Therefore he sent the hand that wrote the inscription. This is the inscription that was written:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN
Here is what these words mean:
Menee : God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
Tekel : You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.
Then at Belshazzar’s command, Daniel was clothed in purple, a gold chain was placed around his neck, and he was proclaimed the third highest ruler in the kingdom. That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.”
Here’s an interesting historical fact: The Medes are modern day Iraqis and the Persians are modern day Iranians.
So, What happens when the first Mosque gets sued?
I support this ruling and I will walk shoulder to shoulder with Glenn Beck if his church or anyones church is threatened of losing their tax exempt status. They should NEVER be forced to believe in something they do not believe in.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, and Obama supporters..
We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know, we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but, sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot, and will not ever agree on what is right, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile, chalk it up to irreconcilable differences, and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them) .
We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens.
Divine judgement forthcoming.
This was never about equal rights, thats why the gays never agreed to change the partnership laws to equal the marriage laws, marriage by definition is between a man and woman, that's what its origins are, and yes it is religious, it is a blood covenant between a man an woman and God. it doesnt matter if you believe in God or not, that is where the word came from, the gay's are full of spit ! they don't mind trampling on someone else's rights, to justify their means, they can pass all the laws they want, God will NEVER honor their so called marriage ...
Cool. The second most pressing issue (behind MarxistCare) facing this country has been resolved. Sunshine-n-Lollipops from here on out.
What's up next on the progressive agenda?!?!
Trolls are flooding this story below. They REALLY REALLY love gay marriage for some reason.
Personally, I think it should have been left to the states. This is not a federal issue and it's shameful that liberals turned something so "gay" (pun intended) into a federal issue.
Darth, that was made official when our current president made it into office.
I guess now, if I wanted to marry my sister, I could. Maybe not. But how long will it be before I can marry my female dog? She is a beautiful dog by the way...
"Next up, let's force the Christians to marry us in their own churches!"
As Rush would say, "Do not doubt me on this."
It has not mattered for some time now.
Judgment is coming for this nation and it will be ugly and when it does our so called "leaders" will cry out to GOD.
After they have removed GOD from everything, they will cry out to him.
Gays and transgenders are going to become even more cocky and impossible than they already are. The Supreme Court got it wrong.
Sadly Darth, it sure looks that way...never saw a country so backwards to let the MINORITY dictate to the MAJORITY how it's gonna be....at least I know when I die, I won't need to pack shorts like the twinks in this country will. Leviticus deemed homosexuality to be an abomination, but you can't tell the Kool-Ade drinking, KY-lubing libs that unfortunately...
All the more reason I decided against having kids because having been bullied unfairly over 25 years ago when I lived in Jersey simply for stating the fact that I only lust after women, men do NOTHING for me sexually and never will, I nearly committed suicide by jumping off a bridge where I grew up..they definitely went above and beyond to do that for me because they didn't want to lose a good friend to them, especially over immaturity...there's just NO way in hell I would ever subject a child to mine to similar or now even WORSE treatment than I ever got...no thanks!
Some enterprising person needs to start marketing the "gay Confederate Flag." It would certainly change the story line on the Dukes of Hazard.
Doesn't this mean that now liberal states can no longer refuse complete 2nd Amendment rights to every citizen in all 50 states? If states rights don't matter on this, they shouldn't matter on the 2nd Amendment.
I now realize something very important. That take back America army, is about 7 years late. When that quasi commie sat down in the oval office for the first time. it should have happened then..(WE FAILED WE KNEW GD WELL ALL OF THIS AND MORE WAS COMING).. People, There is no political Messiah coming to save us. And all the wasted years of talking about the problems thinking your going to vote them away, and this goofy idea that somehow everyone is going to hold hands and live in la la land is nuts. You have now only two options.. 1) Do nothing and enjoy living in this f*(&Ked up quasi commie nation of ever increasing human and business controls run by a Washington Money Mafia 2.) Get with like mined individuals and take it apart...That's it.
Thank goodness…now we can move on.
My Christian friends, I know this will only lead to direct assaults on your faith and I’m sorry for that. Soon enough you’ll be sued for praying in public because it made a fudgepacker uncomfortable.
However, I simply don’t think 2% of the population having a piece of paper from the state deeming them “married” is going to burn the whole nation down.
Seriously, is your marriage under God or under the State of (Insert State name here)? Is your state your God? No. Is your State the church? No. So why are we empowering the state to sanction marriage at all? Marriage law litigation…that’s why.
And guess what? Along with the very few advantages, and there really are very few literal mechanical advantages to marriage that can’t be resolved in a legal document outside of a marriage; married Gay people will suffer things like…DIVORCE! Ah yes, it’s a miserable experience. HALF! That’s right HALF baby…it doesn’t matter if the person you married turned out to be an ass…HALF! And can you say “Spousal support”? He, he…
Also, the gays that are in the marginal middle class will get to enjoy wonderful facts brought to us by the arseholes they elect…like before they got married, they would each qualify for an ObamaCare Subsidy up to $44,680 of income, but as a reward for getting married the two of them only qualify up to $60,520! Now…wasn’t that worth it?
Trust me folks, they will become part of the 50% of failed marriages and divorce really sucks.
Keep in kind folks, a Republic is NOT about majority rule…it is a guard against it. It feels wrong that 2% can overcome the will of the 54%, but Tyranny of the majority is not what you should want…we saw that with ObamaCare when it was passed with zero Republican votes…that’s what tyranny of the majority looks like.
Christian businesses just need to wear it on their sleeve. Make your business a “ministry”, Promulgate a business description, clearly stated in your contracts and signage that your business is providing your service in the name of Jesus Christ.
Emblazon your vehicle and uniforms…you own a farm and want to lease for weddings? Make your business model and contract laden with scripture, you have a right to do that. Nobody can tell you not to put scripture on your business implements or speak scripture whenever you want. That’s your business model and if a gay couple wants your services, scripture comes with the package, because that is the package you offer to everyone.
If they hire you, use it for God’s good. What better opportunity to save a soul than a pile of sinners all in one place? That’s why preachers go to bars!
You know darned well, if you wear your faith on your sleeve, your like kind will raise you up and make you successful. Can you say “Chic-Fil-A”?
You're right--your vote doesn't matter when the issue at hand involves taking away someone else's rights.

Duckman, the bike rider was wrong to call 911 for this. In his defense though, if bikers don’t report violations of laws like this nobody will. As you can clearly see from all of the commenters on The Blaze people in automobiles own ever paved surface in existence. And furthermore everyone better stay out of their way and make sure they don’t ever have to slow down or inconvenience them in any way.
I love how the commentary is that bikers are rude and think they own the whole road, since obviously it’s the car drivers who own the whole road and the bikers are inconveniencing them by making them slow down sometimes (although nobody is actually saying that part of it).
 June 12, 2015 at 10:26am
fullmetal have you ever ridden a bike? You can’t see well. You have no rear view mirrors and most of your ability to look behind you is limited by your body. Furthermore turning to look usually propels you in the direction you turn your head. An unfortunate effect of balancing with your center of gravity shifting. You can’t stop as quickly as a car even though on most surface streets you’re going just as fast. It’s a lot harder to propel yourself back into motion under your own power rather than stomping your fat foot on a gas pedal.
I do agree though that there are circumstances where it’s necessary to park in a bike lane and this is probably one of them. The cop did definitely abuse his authority though. No reason to call 911 though. Just dismount, if necessary, walk around and go again.
Either way I understand his perspective. As you can tell from your and other people’s comments on here, if bikers don’t report laws in their favor being broken in this way, the car drivers who self-righteously think they own every inch of every road in existence certainly won’t.
June 12, 2015 at 9:56am
Actually they do mind but they don’t have a choice.
Putter, You might want to look up cycling traffic laws sometime rather than assuming they’re doing something wrong. They are not the same as car traffic laws.
May 21, 2015 at 9:04am
Hagop, You say that we’ve “given up on God’s sovereignty and are trying instead to please the world,” I say, “accept the world for what it is and try to see how God’s sovereignty made it.” That’s exactly what science is as you mentioned. Observing how the world and figuring out how it works. Since God made the world what we’re literally observing is the rules he set in place for it. The simple fact that I can sit here at this computer and type a comment into it and broadcast that out to the planet is proof in itself that these observations are pretty accurate so I can’t immediately discount them.
Terminator, for one God didn’t breath life into animals, he breathed it into Humans. That’s what differentiates us from animals. For two, believing that God could create the universe instantaneously and believing that he chose to do it that way are two completely different things. One of those comes from the misinterpretation of Genesis through a series of translations and re-translations by fallible men working with fallible languages (which don’t always match up exactly as observed with what happened at the tower of Babel), and the other comes from observation of God’s creation. I’ll leave it to you to determine which one is which. I’m not trying to convince you to believe anything, just to stop with the vitriol when discussing while ignoring what’s right in front of you (I.E. some form of computer, maybe a light bulb or two, etc.).
May 19, 2015 at 10:24am
How about if he didn’t just sit back and let it happen but rather patiently guided it throughout millions of years until Man’s body was ready to receive his spirit? If you understand the mechanisms that drive evolution you can easily see how that is possible unless you are simply looking for an excuse to disbelieve his influence. I’m afraid you lost me on point 2. I don’t see how a flood could ruin the process of evolution…
Since evolution appears to be your sticking point, go research chromosomal crossover. Specifically its effect on mutations (the drivers of evolution): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromosomal_crossover
Do so and ask yourself the question, “What if these mutations don’t really happen at random?”
That might just be the kind of information that the cretins are too dense to understand? Even if it’s not true (It’s not described in the bible after all), I still think God would rather have a person ask honest questions rather than blindly submitting to what fallible men say is true. Rather than immediately accepting anything as fact, try to make it fit with what you already know to be true if it doesn’t already. If it fits it’s probably true.
 May 15, 2015 at 8:58am
Take a look at the picture where the two men are hugging it out and see if you notice anything concerning on the right hand side of the frame as the whole room is supposed to be in applause and weeping loudly. Look at that and tell me America is not yet dead. I agree that there are still a lot of good people around, but we are very far from where we should be.
If you can be staring at your damn phone when something like that is going on and be completely unmoved, there’s a problem.
Charcoal, Sulfur, and Potassium Nitrate. Go make your own powder. You’re completely missing the point of what I’m saying.
 May 13, 2015 at 9:51am
Sounds like it’s time to start loading ammo at home and gifting it to friends and family in exchange for something else. That way it’s not a sale and no license would be required. There’s always a way around it.
Rudimentary firearms were used 900 years ago. It’s not hard for someone with limited knowledge to replicate this well versed technology. Why can’t these cretins come to terms with the fact that no matter what legislation they throw at guns, lunatics will always be able to get their hands on them (even if they have to make their own) and cause tragedies?
"Loading at home" is a way of life for instructors "NRA Reloading Instructor" and shooting sports enthusiast however it has its own problems with Government.
The Union strikes on the West Coast Docks pretty effectively "stopped" reloading powders from getting into the Country from Australia thus causing a critical shortage of powders like "Unigue" Varget, IMR4064 and others popular in reloading as well as some types of Primers!. Sweden and Australia are the largest manufacturers of Primers and Powders.
Even here in Wyoming, citing public safety concerns, a Demoncratic State Representative tried to limit how many pounds of powder a citizen could possess! The lbs allowed would not let a typical shooter enough to load for typical match and was shot down by the legislature.
They often cite that "Reloading Powders are "Explosives" ... which they are not ... ATF and EPA also tries this tactic to regulate reloading .... Smokeless powders used for rifle, pistol and shotgun reloading are flammable - "Not Explosive" ... Black Powders FFg, FFFg, etc... are explosive but are limited to the Black Powder shooting Community which is small, though a black powder cannon can use a lot of it !
Bottom line is, when a free citizen finds away around communist rule, your elected official will find a new rule !
anyone with two brain cells can build a 'gun" from what is found in a typical kitchen and garage, maybe several. Along with propellent and projectile. Will it go bang? Yes. Will it be accurate? At ten feet.
Will it shoot more than once. Maybe. The point being, guns are so simple as to be stupid. A tube open at one end, a way to hang on to it, a load that can be put in it, a way to ignite that load, point it.
But it would get you close enough to take all the wind out of a person with a better gun. Look up the "Liberator Pistol" that was dropped on eurpoe during WW2.
Multiply that by thousands...
 May 13, 2015 at 9:36am
More proof that communist entities thrive on stealing the ideas of others maybe? The more I learn about Target, the more I dislike it.
If it is where moochelle goes for photo-ops, it kinda' says it all. Bad place to spend money.
"You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means."
It seems to me that Target is practicing capitalism. They are certainly not practicing communism.
They probably were imported from China.
Target is communist? How so?
"It seems to me that Target is practicing capitalism." There was a time where, like a lot of things, practicing capitalism included some degree of ethics and integrity. If the company had any they would have contacted here and offered a royalty for use of the design. Its kind of like when you remove sportsmanship and integrity from sports. You know like Tom Brady and the Patriots. At the end it is not tough competition, it is cheating... plain and simple.

Throwing a little ***** a beating and killing him are COMPLETELY (see how I can use all caps too :-) ) different things. This kid’s life was not in danger, and he was being taught the responsibility that comes along with the freedom of speech. Any freedom comes with the responsibility to not abuse it and you can’t have the freedom without the responsibility. This kid was simply being taught the responsibility part of it.
I completely agree that it should be the parent doing the punishing, so don’t get me wrong there, but you are drawing parallels between things that are not even close to the same.
I use caps for emphasis because bold isn't possible... sorry if you took it as yelling, I wasn't yelling at you.
So you would be ok with Pamela Geller getting a little beating? If her life wouldn't have been in danger, it is ok to "teach" the responsibility that comes with freedom of speech?
Would it be ok to "teach" a liberal calling President Bush horrific names? Would it be ok to "teach" a conservative a lesson for calling President Obama bad names?
Or even more so... Would if be ok for *you* to teach the kid a lesson if he called the teacher a "n"?
