I think the author of this article watched a different debate, and obviously also ignored the rest of the media’s opinions and various instant polls across the country. The Hot Mic moment was just that – the opening moment of the debate. And yes, it makes Trump look bad. But for the rest of the night Hillary had to play defense as Trump raked her over the coals. This ‘moment’ didn’t overshadow anything. If you were to re-watch the debate and skip those opening minutes, maybe you would see what DID overshadow everything. I am not a fan of either of these candidates, but I have to be honest and fair here – Trump won the debate by getting past the hot mic issue. Did either candidate gain voters? Probably not. But there was a lot more to this debate than the hot mic moment as this biased author would have you believe.
There are baskets of deplorables and then also basket-case media.
The former seeks truth and the latter obfuscates truth with personal vendetta.
Today that’s considered so called journalism to the gullible pea brain.
To the basket of deplorables it is considered hubristic overreaching.

The “consensus” was based on at abstract that ONE person wrote, looking ad hand picked statements by scientists on the U.N. Payroll to put together said abstract to draw this “97% consensus conclusion.
Turns out it wasn’t even 97% of the U.N. scientists! It was 97% of hand picked quotes!
But the U.N. leaders and now the ‘progressive’ politicians decided to take it a step further, and say it was 97% of scientists – carefully leaving out the part that it was ONLY scientists who are employed, and answer to the U.N. and said governments.
However, it is FACTS, it is SCIENCE, it is EMPIRICAL DATA (no such thing as empirical “truths” Leonardo) that World Scientists review, analyze and quote – and their conclusion is that Man Made Global Warming is an out and out hoax. And they outnumber the U.N. “97%” tally of scientists by TEN TO ONE!
Can the real deniers – those that buy in to this hoax – please accept this? 10-1 folks! Based on empirical FACTS.
The truth is out there – one just has to LOOK.

What a tragic event. It’s terrible that no one listened. (Kinda like when you complain about all the ads here on The Blaze – sorry – but they need to be reminded.) One can only hope that justice is served in the future, somehow.
"“We told people and no one would listen. No one came to help us. No one did a thing.”"
The sad reason is that, even by the 70s, it was in vogue to make false complaints. It hadn't reached the epidemic of false charges of the 1990s to now, but when you have so many people saying "I was raped" or "I was assaulted" or... and it turns out to be a lie, how can DAs and law enforcement not become cynical.
The feminist movement created this situation by encouraging women to lie and file false complaints. Here in Oregon in 2011, the feminists went ballistic when a bill in the legislature would have required false complaints to have jail time. That is the type of person they are.
And so, when a person has a REAL complaint, it tends to get lost in the ocean of false ones.
I predicted long ago that the false complaints would make it tough for genuine victims to get justice and this story is an example of that.
Too many women crying wolf to hurt someone innocent and it should be no surprise when a real victim can't get justice.

The only thing that’s bogging down the site is the extreme amount of ads. I wrote to you folks about this months ago, and it’s only gotten worse.

As per my comment above, also showed your reply to my friend, the former Marine chopper pilot. His comment? Remind me to never get in a bird with him! lol But yeah, you can start to move off backwards, however I highly doubt you’d fly away at speeds like that while not being able to see behind you. Sure choppers can fly backwards, but no one would fly it like THAT. That was what I was getting at.
September 25, 2014 at 5:44pm
Well, I showed it to a friend of mine – a former Marine Pilot, and he says yes it could be real, but the pilot was a complete moron if it is, because for the chopper to behave that way means he took off in to Typhoon type winds and immediately had no control. Which, would explain why he ran away from the scene. So, yeah, could be real – the wind speed makes it look fake.
 September 25, 2014 at 2:27pm
Yeah – that’s a toy! Real Helicopters (and pilots) never fly away backwards! And they can’t climb and accelerate that fast. And where’s the noise from the engine and props? Can’t believe no one at The Blaze saw this was a fake!
The first 2 seconds of the video had me convinced it was an RC. I even played it the second time to see if I missed something.
Agree! It looked to me as though the little boy was holding a controller?
Fake or not, it looked pretty simular to my drone crash the other week. Somewhere in Lake Hartwell in 40 feet of water lies a drone and go pro.
That was my initial reaction for the first few seconds but its deceiving. This is indeed a reall R44 heli that crashed. Not an rc. The scale of the object is simply too large with distance. Even the reflection of it in the lake reveals its true size! Take another look.
And youre completely wrong that we "real pilots never fly away backwards" lol... Ive done it many times.
Thats a Robinson R44. Not a toy and it is a real video.

As with any disease, the longer you let it grow, the worse it gets. This should have been shut down with the attack at the Olympics in 1973. Instead our illustrious world leaders, be it through the U.N. or acting as an individual nation, have virtually ignored it via political correctness. As the old saying goes, anyone that refuses to learn from history is doomed to repeat it. And we’ve seen this type of inaction and the results from it time and time again.

Tell that to the Jews in Nazi Germany.
Tell that to the millions who opposed Stalin in Russia.
Tell that to the millions who voiced descent in China under Mao.
Tell that to the folks who ended up in the killing fields in Cambodia.
All were nations that were run by a Socialist Dictator, who surrounded himself with hard core far left supporters, radicals, and even criminals, who disarmed their citizens and were propped up by lies and propaganda and a corrupt or controlled media.
And what’s going on here in the US today? A President who’s a far left socialist, who thinks he’s an all powerful dictator, who has surrounded himself NOT with folks that can get the job done but rather with hard core far left supporters. Many of his associations in life were with radicals and even criminals. And he constantly lies, uses propaganda, and our media is corrupt. All fact, all proven. I don’t think I need to go down the list that’s longer than my arm.
But yeah Tom – you’re right. It’s just “far-reaching”.

I am not very religious. I am also not a biologist. So I cannot reasonably argue things like ‘when life begins’. However, we all know that pregnancy does lead to life. And for this woman to be so casual about abortion is sickening. Even if you believe in abortion, it should NEVER be taken casually. I’ve heard it said that Liberalism is a mental disorder. I would counter that it’s not. However, hard core Liberals are Narcissists – and that IS a mental disorder. This uncaring, self centered woman is the proof. She needs help. As do most liberals who live in denial, are uncaring, ignore facts, and only care about themselves and what they want. Narcissists should be ignored, and never be given a second thought. They should never be in positions of power (like politics or media). They will turn on each other as well as the rest of us. It’s a dangerous sickness, and one that needs to be recognized and dealt with. We have way too many of them roaming the land these days – from this heartless woman to the White House.
God said the life is in the blood, therefore animals that are killed for food are to have their necks cut and allow the heart to pump out the blood (life) of the animal before consuming, Kosher. Where there is blood, there is life, there is a heart. A baby begins at the first instance of a drop of blood.
I have yet to see people birthing anything but people. No dogs no cats just humans. Being a human I think all humans should have the same rights I got from my Mother. That being said, human pregnancy does lead to human life. From the very second the cell starts to divide, the only out come is a human being. You may feel safe by standing on the fence, but your ass is four feet from ground zero.
FactInTruth, I wish the Blaze had Like buttons so I could click it for you. Well said.
Reality check, riiiggghhttt. This is just another over-sexed chick who likes to sleep around with no consequence at all, and puts the burden of it on the taxpayers. Another attention whore and a leech on society, just like Sandra Fluke. Say anything to get attention.
These people disgust me but I will pray for them anyway. The ironic thing is when their time comes and if they have not changed their beliefs and accepted Christ as their savior, then they will all be aborted from eternal life, to eternal damnation in Hell.
I think this is what we are dealing with now, simply good versus evil. Pick a side and stand firm. They are showing themselves for what they are, evil, horribly, misguided people. If we lose our values, we lose society. There is no one leading us with virtue, integrity, and honor in government. Throw them all out and stop the insanity. Our leadership is promoting people like this woman to step out and make these outrageous statements.
Factntruth, you needn't be religious or a biologist to discuss when life begins. Why does one need either to discuss this subject? All you need is a minimum of common sense to see the ridiculousness of drawing arbitrary lines that define life. An embryo is life. If you think only a biologist can legitimately decide this, we gain a major clue as to why our culture is so F'd up!
I encourage all of you to visit her Amazon profile and share your thoughts with this disgrace of a Human being.
Notice all the pro abortionists are already born?Selfish group. Just try to adopt. There are no children available, unless you have lots of money. I adopted 6 right after Roe v wade. Now that would be impossible.
Yes,the White House. Oba signed the FOCA: the Freedom of Choice Act in less than a week after being sworn in that makes Law ,at anytime any place in any way for any reason, a woman can have an abortion,ie murder her baby. Legal genecide! With Oba,it's fine to murder,but now a felony to protest near the Pres'. A felony. Like NDAA,our rights are gone. and instead of Congress,Mr. Oba answers to NATO and the UN.No 1st Amend'no 2ed Amend,or 3rd 4th etc. The Constitution is trashed for the One World Gov' and One World Religion.Why is Congress and Senate allowing any of this??? Ask them now while you still can!! Anarchy with Oba as our 'Fearless Leader' and his minions following in lock-step with this demon-in chief. Speak-up Sheeple!! And now the idea has hit that we should allow Post-Abortion up to 2yrs of age. Yeah,this is reality!! Can you even imagine where this is heading? You will be 'put to sleep' cause you're a drag on the rest of the people. Who decides who the is,is? Minioms inc. Shout it out now! A Christian Patriot
I love abortion, too. Liberals are the only ones committing abortion and it keeps tham from breeding! Seriously, unfortunately, in this country, it takes a license to drive and license to fish but anyone can have a kid. Can you imagine the kind of hell her kid would grow up in. Is it any wonder why, when liberals grow up, they are sexually confused about who they are? Njo wonder liberals have so much trouble with drug abuse. They grow up believing there is nothing exceptional about themselves, thinking that they can't make their own way in this world without the help of the "village" . When they are turned out of the nest, they have no life skills whatsoeve. If you don't believe that, I invite you to ride the bus, in your area and talk to some of these zombies. BEWARE:after you do this you'll be so depressed, you'll want to lay around and get stoned all day, too. Instead of going to WORK, at your JOB, where you get PAID and support your UNABORTED FAMILY in the proper manor!
You need not be religious to support natural human rights and you need not be a biologist to know when life begins. In fact, I find that if you are religious, then you start to make wildly ignorant statements like male masturbation is equivalent to genocide. And if you are a biologist you start to dehumanize what is a human by calling it a blastocyst or fetus instead of a human being.
If you want to know when the rights of the person start, then just look to nature. A baby that is born is definitely a human being with all the rights of any other person. We all know this to be true. Now, was the baby inhuman 30 minutes prior to being born? I think not. How about a month prior? Still no. Some will say here that a "fetus" is only human after it can support itself outside the mother's womb. I would tell them that as science and technology progress, premature babies have continually been saved from death sooner and sooner and that one day, science will have an incubator that is nearly of completely capable of keeping even the most recently formed human alive. So choosing either birth or some arbitrary point before birth as the moment a child becomes human is ignorant.
However, during the first 24-48 hours after fertilization, the egg has to physically implant into the mother's uterus. This is not always successful in nature. Once implantation has occurred however, a child has the reasonable right to life barring any accidental or biological misfortune. Implantation is
I went over to this web site. It's just another left wing hate site. They look very official and knowledgable but if you just google research some of their articles you find that their articles are written with half truths and all out lies. They are the internet version of MSNBC. They just print the liberal spin.
This liberal proudly admits to having committed abortion. She did it in part because of the weight gain and being sick in the mornings. She had no reguard for the idea of birth control in the first place or even the day after pill.
IS it any wonder that the liberals are the ones growing up confussed about things like if they are a man or a woman? They are taught all their life that it takes a village to raise them and then when they get out on their own, they have no life skills and get lost and confused while the rest of us live our lives. I wish this woman had never gotten pregnant at all but I am glad that someone like her didn't bring a life into this world. Can you imagine the horror it would have to go through, just to become aa vile as her?.
Very well said.
Its sad really. One day she will realize how much of a monster she is and it will be too late. One day she will have to face the spirit that she denied a body too. One day she will know what true Hell is. I feel bad for her and the like. That being said, anyone remember the prophecy given by John in the Book of Revelation, where he says that women shall drink the blood of their infant. If you had never even had the concept of an abortion come to your mind and saw these kind of acts going on in a vision, would you maybe describe it like that. I really truly feel like this is what he was prophecying of. Women will disregard their own flesh and blood child for selfish desires. Yet another prophecy fulfilled of the last days. Stand firm my brothers and sisters, decide where you want to be when Christ comes back and stay there.
This "thing" sounds like the off-spring of the "Rev. Jim Jones". Soylent Green, anyone? Wash it down with a little grape Kool-Aid.
Do you really think Satan is going to show up wearing a red suit, carrying a pitch fork?
The moment the sperm enters the ovum and cell division occurs is when life begins. We can say this for the cells are ordered and actively thrive to developed on it's own without direction from "outside" influences. What I mean by outside influence is that the mother, father and or doctor can't say, "Today we are going to developed fingernails and hair follicles."
You're so full of crap. Name one, ONE faith who claims "male masturbation is equivalent to genocide." I get it. You're so damn smart we "religious" folk couldn't beging to comprehend. But don't make such "wildly ignorant statements". Jerk.
"...there is no need to suggest that abortion be rare. To say so implies a value judgement, promoting the idea that abortion is somehow distasteful or immoral and should be avoided."
It's about time we had some honesty from the pro-choicers. Most say it should be rare because in their hearts and minds they know it's morally wrong to kill an unborn child. But their politics won't let them say that. She's wrong but at least she's being honest with herself. I wish all pro-choicers were just as vocal so the rest of America could see how sick they actually are.

They are still trying to sell the whole war on women crap, even though, the fight is really about the tax payer wanting liberals to occupy a job for once in their lives and being responsible for their own actions
The most important task of the communistic state is to replace the old Mosaic morality with the amorphous morality of the state. Once the state determines what is moral, the people are permanently enslaved.
To wax religious, the Book of Mormon speaks of ancient works of darkness called "secret combinations". All we know is that these secret combinations were a means of ensnaring the hearts of tens of thousands, many of whom didn't even realize what was happening, turning them into vile monsters with no love of life. Here, after forty years, we have millions of Americans who have unwittingly discarded their morality in pursuit of state-sanctioned blood sacrifice through abortion. Abortion is a secret combination, and will lead only to destruction.
She goes on to say "It stands to reason that if we ensure contraception is both readily available and easily affordable for sexually active women of all ages, the need for abortion may decrease as a result. That would be a laudable accomplishment and an indication of social progress for an America otherwise plagued by anti-feminist, religious conservatism known for shaming women's sexuality."
Did I miss that part on this website? I didn't see it.
Junie, it's also kosher to take a newborn baby and cut off part of his p enis, after which, a grown man who might have a sexually transmitted disease takes the penis IN HIS MOUTH and sucks the blood out of it. The baby has a chance of contracting this disease and then dying from it. It's called religious freedom.
Of course you people don't really care what happens to a mother and her baby after the child is born. That would be Socialism. How dare your tax dollars go to things like healthcare and college. Jesus would have hated that (well, perhaps the bit about education).
What is difficult for you to understand ...you/anyone wants contraception; get it, but I DON"T WANT TO BUY IT FOR YOU ... get it !
Well said FACTNTRUTH. From first word to last, VERY well said.
This is the new narrative: that Republicans are trying to take away your precious contraception. There is no effort. None. This narrative exists only on television. Wag the Dog.
Contraception is so readily available that they practically throw the stuff at you here at the university. Walk around the student union, and you can find free contraceptives. Go to the local Planned Parenthood, you can get free contraceptives. Go to the county health clinic, you can get free contraceptives. Go online, you can really inexpensive contraceptives. There is no war on women - except the war on women's minds being waged by the left. They will have women believe that, unless they are eliminating future populations through abortion and contraception, they are not admirable women.
As usual, man misinterprets what God says. What was really said was: '..........Man shall not eat from those lifeforms that eat of [rely on] other lifeforms.' This means plants shall be the honored and revered life as they do not partake in the eating of other lifeforms.
Oooops, lunchtime. Time for another burger ........... without the plant-based (wheat) bun ;-)
You are confusing Liberal with Progressive. You are falling for the trap set by progressives. The founding fathers were EXTREMELY LIBERAL. You need to study classical liberalism. What is being pushed, that you call liberal, is anything but the true form f what is liberal. It is progressives stating they are liberating people from responsibility (IE nerfing the system). That is not core belief of what is truly Liberal. You are getting caught up in the labels and need to focus more on the issues.
I am a proud Classical Liberal and will always be that. Please watch this video and learn the distinction. Liberals are they "Blue Dog Democrats" or the Moderates. They are against communism and control by the federal government. They are for right to life, liberty and property at no expense but of one's own actions.
Awesome point. Create the crisis to install more regulations. A perfect example of progressive tactics. Divide and conquer.
"in this country, it takes a license to drive and license to fish but anyone can have a kid."
I like your point. You also need a license to marry so why not a license to procreate? If one is deemed to unfit to parent, then tie the tubes of the woman and snip snip the man.

The Gadsden Flag was a symbol of people united against a tyrannical and corrupt GOVERNMENT.
The Occupy protestors are against BUSINESSES.
These two fools have no idea what the Flag stood for, and indeed it befits the TEA Party movement, and in no way belongs with what they are protesting.

I really hate to lower myself to the standards of the ‘progressives’, but in this particular case I think we need the Kid From Brooklyn to send a message to Van Jones.
I think Trumka is exactly right. The people he mentioned DID open the door to hate, by telling the truth and providing facts and information to the American People that opened their eyes to what is really going on. The only thing Mr. Trumpka left out was that the hate was in response to these truths, and it all comes from the children on the left or the Elitist Progressives or the unions. They opened the door, but the hate that walked in came from the opposing side…
