    Benjamin Franklin, Signer of the Declaration of Independence “[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
    “Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.” Continental Congress, 1778

    Note that the above quotes are but a small sample of hundreds of quotes the Founding Fathers made in regards to the importance of a religious and moral people in a successful Republican Democracy.

    In our young nation, the Bible was used as a text book for the purpose of teaching children moral principles to live by. As time went on, the Bible was gradually replaced by other text books such as Noah Webster’s Primer. Webster’s Primer taught children to spell but was also filled with moral Bible verses. In the front of his Primer was his picture with the inscription, “Who taught millions to read but not one to sin.”

    This is the exact opposite of the school curriculum today. The courts in this country have revised the First Amendment, thus erecting a wall of atheism around every public school in America, where in God is not allowed to be mentioned.

  • [2] July 18, 2014 at 8:12pm

    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams 1798

    Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. “[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”

    Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary said, “[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.”

    Robert Winthrop – “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.”

    George Washington – “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.”

    My jaw dropped when I realized TheBlaze was calling someone out on typos, lack of proof reading, lazyness etc.

    I have never seen seen any organization with more errors than I see on TheBlaze. It chaps my hide because I have gone to such great lengths to try and get TheBlaze to improve by implementing the elementary task of simply proof reading their work for TRUTH and accuracy before they post. They refuse, and poo-poo the suggestion, saying they are in too big a hurry to publish.

    Thanks Blaze – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

    Thank you for making the corrections to the article. It’s understandable now.

    Where is the TRUTH in this story? Flip a coin to make the decision?

    1) First you write that the paramedic says ‘Hey, that’s my trailer that was stolen… Then in the very next paragraph you write that the paramedic didn’t realize his trailer had even been stolen from the area until he saw it on the scene.
    Which is it? One of your versions is NOT TRUE! This is a very short article. Why can’t you get the easy ones correct?

    2) Let me get this straight. Are you saying the pickup driver and the trailer were found in possession of a firearm? The trailer was found in possession of a firearm too?

    3) But you don’t stop there, you also indicate that the trailer was found in possession of drugs and stolen credit cars. Credit CARS? Really?

    4) If the crash was caused when the pickup driver, who in addition to the trailer failed to slow down for a red light, who gets assigned the blame? Or do they both split it 50-50? I had to read that paragraph 5 times to even begin to grasp what you were trying to say.

    5) The pickup was later found stolen as well? The pickup is right there in the picture. Why did someone find it later? It’s right there! Or were you trying to say that the pickup was later found to be stolen as well?

    Instead of telling the truth, mike chose to over sensationalize “as cars whiz zed past”.

    They certainly have the capability to provide a better product to their customers. Particularly, the elementary step of proof reading their articles for accuracy before posting them. They simply choose not to.

    My comments are regarding the 3:14 video of Cliven speaking under the tree.

    From that video Cliven seems to be demonstrating love towards the black people, and to the mexicans.

    He does not want them to be in bondage to the United States Government. Kind of reminds me of the movie RUNAWAY SLAVE.

    Cliven is not saying that he wants them to go back to being slaves. He is saying that they have merely gone from one form of slavery into a different form of slavery, and neither one of those situations is good for them. Cliven wants the purple people, green people, tan people, white people, blue people, black people, and even the yellow people to have FREEDOM.

    He comes across as a cowboy who speaks like a cowboy, who has a loving heart, who wants all people to be able to enjoy freedom. His choice of words aren’t what I would use, but I grew up in a different place than he did.

    I cannot speak to Clivens larger picture because I don’t have enough info, but ONLY regarding the 3:14 video that I watched on TheBlaze, the guy seems to be advocating, supporting, concerned, worried, and troubled, about the current problems facing many black people in America. In his dare I say “backcountry” fashion he seems to be demonstrating love towards his fellow men of a different complexion.

    Does that last line above cause a reaction in you? Yes or no?

  • April 9, 2014 at 11:35pm

    I have been disgusted at the amount of grammatical errors on TheBlaze myself. I have sent countless emails to Editor Scott Baker about their lack of proof reading. They have been met with disregard plain and simple.

    My main beef is this. I want TheBlaze to be a bullet proof source for truth and honest information. With the plethora of errors in their stories I am led to believe that they DO NOT proof read their articles for accuracy before publishing. If they are not proof reading the story for accuracy, how can I as the reader trust that the story is accurate and true? How can I?

    I expect more from TheBlaze. Until they implement a QUALITY CONTROL PROGRAM, beginning with something as elementary as proof reading their work, the information they distribute will be suspect, and unworthy of the cleansing pillar of fire.

    I want TheBlaze to succeed. We need TheBlaze to succeed.

    We must hold them accountable, and demand that they perform to our high standards.

    Please email the authors and Editor Scott Baker with your thoughts. Please contact them when they continue to produce sloppy work.

    Together we can help the, make the necessary improvements.

    Usually in these stories the police say “Someone called, so we have to do something” or one of us writes in the Comments Section: “someone must have called the police, so they had to do something.”

    I am so tired of that line. Somebody simply calling 911 doesn’t necessarily require any interaction. The dispatcher can say “I understand that you are calling because you saw someone carrying a firearm out in the open. YOU DO KNOW THAT IT IS LEGAL FOR THEM TO DO THAT DON’T YOU? Are they shooting it? We will drive by and check it out, but most likely we won’t even stop and make contact with them.”

    What if a 911 caller said that someone was carrying a blunt object? More people are killed by blunt objects than rifles.

    What if the 911 caller said they could see a knife attached to their belt? More people are killed by knives than rifles.

    What if the 911 caller said someone had a boot on their foot? More people are killed by hands, fists and feet than by rifles.

    What if the 911 caller said that someone was chewing bubble gum? That is just as legal as carrying a rifle out in the open.

    There are people who call 911 because their hamburger order got messed up and they are angry. Just because someone calls 911, it doesn’t demand police action! They have discretion to choose what course of action they want, and they should do what’s right.

    The police need to be educated, and they also need to do their part to educate those people who are misinformed and over r

    I had to go to NBC News to get the story.

    Fire chief Norazam Khamis told NBC News via telephone that the collision on the country’s main north-south expressway happened when one of the cars veered from its lane and into the other two cars. He said they were travelling to the capital for a car show.

    The cars were traveling at around 110 km/h, which is the speed limit in Malaysia, he said. Khamis added he did not think the cars were breaking the speed limit.

    And yes I love the Blaze, but I have been frustrated out of my mind at their lack of journalistic professionalism. I get the impression they never proof read their stories before publishing since too often they are laden with grammatical errors.

    The errors tell me they are not checking the story over to make sure it’s correct and ready for publishing. If they are not checking the story for correctness, then how can I be assured I am getting the TRUTH instead of a mistake?

    Many emails to Editor Scott Baker about the plethora of errors on The Blaze have been met with disregard. Mr. Baker said they are in a hurry to push information out quickly, and that quite frankly they are willing to let the readers bring their mistakes to their attention.

    I have been disgusted every time Mr. Baker brushes this off. I want The Blaze to stand out as exceptional. I WANT TO KNOW THEY ARE WORKING VERY HARD TO DELIVER THE TRUTH. Simply hoping for the truth doesn’t cut it.

    I Can’t Convince them, Can You?

    I Can’t Con

  • December 7, 2013 at 2:39pm

    Actually this demonstration has an interesting parallel.

    For the life of me I cannot convince some of my liberal friends (or most of my conservative friends for that matter!) about the sinister plans the “Alinsky Crowd” is pushing on Americans. They think Communism is dead, & can’t comprehend that Americans would be working to destroy our system. They cannot comprehend it – despite reading and watching the Marxists explain what they intend to do to us.

    I try to explain it and they can’t see it, even though it’s staring them right in the face. I showed this illusion to someone and said “those two blocks are exactly the same color, can’t you see it?” “It’s not a trick question, they are the same color, and that is the TRUTH!”

    Americas adversaries from within shine bright lights on some blocks and say to us “look over there” and we look where they direct us to. Then they keep portions of other blocks in the shadows and we don’t see that information. They use this tactic to deceive us, just like this illusion is deceptive to our eyes.

    I couldn’t see how those two blocks were the same color until I read more about them and learned to place my finger horizontally between the two blocks, thus removing the shadow and bright areas.

    The Marxist Con is right there for all of our neighbors to see and understand if they would simply learn more about the Marxist illusion. Once they learn how to deal with the Bright Show Lights, and the Shadows – they will be a

    Thats the way I see it. Someone at the school Destroyed Evidence that the police could use in their investigation either for or against the student, or for or against the school. Seems to me the school wanted to have the ability to exagerate their version of the “facts”.

  • September 2, 2013 at 9:29pm

    Here’s another way to look at it. From the time the couple with the umbrellas on the left side of the road move to avoid getting splashed from the oncoming car, that boulder and the white car are set on a collision course. The people in the white car are completely unaware that they are on a course where in 17 seconds they will be meeting their Maker. Except, the trajectory didn’t line up exactly. WOW.

  • September 2, 2013 at 9:10pm

    Thanks for the info on where that boulder came from. I looked for it several times myself as I initially played the clip over and over. At the 3 second mark look at the skyline above where the Mcdonalds building is. It took the boulder 17 seconds to tumble down the mountain from that elevation.

    @Berbel73

    I welcome some of TheBlaze stories that don’t meet the standard of serious journalism. Interesting clips are fine with me. My problem is all of the grammatical errors. My point is this. In order to publish a story that is accurate you must look it over to ensure that what you wrote is what you intended to write, or to ensure that you laid out the facts correctly. If you proof read your article for correctness (The Truth) before publishing it, then it would seem that you would catch the obvious errors.

    The fact that there are so many errors tells me that they don’t do much checking for accuracy before they publish. That is a problem, and leads me to wonder if the story is correct or not. When I send an important email, I read over it first to make sure it’s right. I CAN’T IMAGINE posting a story for millions of people to read without going over it first!

    And yes, there is a long list of stories that meet this poor standard on TheBlaze.

    Some of us just want to see some improvement at TheBlaze, because 1) we want the truth and 2) we want them to succeed.
