“The BOTTOM is rising up…??” Which “bottom” was that? You mean ordinary Americans who fear for their jobs, their values and the direction in which this country is heading? If you want a clear-cut example of arrogant,elitist thinking Beck’s statement crystallizes it perfectly.

Since Beck hates Trump, this article doesn’t surprise me. However, Cruz is finished as a Presidential candidate no matter what happens with Trump.
There is an axiom in presidential politics: When you try to kneecap the eventual nominee, your career is over. Parties are brutal things. I liken this to what happened to George Romney after what he did to Goldwater in 1964, or what happened to Scoop Jackson after what he did to McGovern in 1972. Ted Cruz is a poor student of history. If he wanted to be like Reagan in 1976, he should have bit the bullet and endorsed Trump, just like Reagan endorsed Ford. I guarantee that if Reagan would have done to Ford what Cruz did, he would have never been elected President. One may try to call Cruz a "man of principles", but given his betrayal of The Pledge, his childish rationale for his refusal to endorse Trump (he picked on my daddy), and his increasing weirdness toward the end of the campaign (picking Fiorina for his "running mate" after being mathematically eliminated), I would say his higher aspirations are over. His only hope now is to work really hard to fend off the eventual hyper-funded primary challenger for his Senate seat in 2018.

I don’t think Cruz’s failure to endorse the nominee has anything to do with his family. I think he’s trying to keep himself separate and apart from Trump because he thinks he’s going to run in 2020. That may or may not happen. My thinking about Cruz, who I was behind in the beginning, has come around 180 degrees, based on his behavior. Cruz now strikes me as an ideological Conservative purist. Unfortunately, he doesn’t yet realize (like Liberal ideological purists) that most Americans are in the center and are not “pure” anything. That’s why I don’t think he’s going anywhere on the national stage now or in the future. I’m not crazy about Trump but I’ll vote for him. I think he’s closer to the center than Cruz will ever be.
AndDeceiving Don strikes me as a pathological liar and sociopath. So ...we each have our ideas. Time will tell.
If Trump makes a mess of the presidency then he will be the Hero, if not Cruz will be the goat, and IF Hillary wins, then I doubt that Cruz will survive his next election cycle in Texas.
Or maybe it's that he knows Trump will be a disaster (albeit not catastrophic like Hillary) and he doesn't want his name tagged with him. Although, let's face it, all of these sycophants will be denying their support when Trump either fails to get elected or is a complete disappointment in office...

Cruz is finished as a possible Presidential candidate. He’ll be lucky to be re-elected Senator.

Considering The Blaze is owned by Glenn Beck, who hates Trump, this article doesn’t surprise me.

Since Lemon (he’s got the right name) works for CNN, his comments are completely predictable.

Right on, Brother Williams.

From what I read Gulen, like the Turkish military, believes in democracy and interfaith dialogue. That’s probably why President Sellout will turn him over to that great lover of democracy, Erdogan. To Obama, isn’t the radical Islamist always right?
WRONG! What is the Gulen Movement and why is it dangerous for America? May 25, 2016 The following was taken from an interview from Frank Gaffney’s “Secure Freedom Radio”. Clare Lopez, a retired CIA operations officer and the current Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, discusses a little-know threat known as the Gulen Movement. Lopez goes on to describe the threat from this particular movement to academic institutions inside the United States. Fethullah Gulen is a Turkish Sunni cleric, he left Turkey in 1999, came to the United States to live here when he was fleeing the then secular government in Turkey, with which he was at odds over his behavior and activities in Turkey, which involved a network of schools and promoting opposition to Kemal Ataturk that was secularizing and modernizing Turkey.

If the coup fails, I think Erdogan will get MORE dictatorial.

Can’t someone identify this weapon? Or will it forever remain an AR-15 STYLE weapon (whatever that is)? Always reminds me of food being advertised as “kosher-style.” It’s either kosher, or it isn’t.
I think it was good shoot. You’re right when you say that, once the thief breaks off the threat, the use of deadly force is usually unjustified. But that’s not what happened. The thief then turned around and pointed his gun at the good guy. He reinstituted the threat of deadly force. I would have fired under those circumstances.

To take just one aspect of this usual ACLU nonsense, if Trump were to order the deportation of illegals, what does this have to do with “unreasonable searches and seizures??” Illegals are here, well, illegally. They broke our laws. As such, they are criminals. Accordingly, all that’s needed is an arrest warrant, which shouldn’t be too hard to get under these circumstances. I’m not all that familiar with immigration law, but even an arrest warrant might not be necessary.
You can get them at work, You can get them at school. You can use the records of the IRS to ferret them out. The idea that you need no-knock raids in the middle of the night to get illegals is ridiculous and just another scare-tactic.

I thought this guy was beyond this. Guess I was wrong. He was asked to show ID because security didn’t know him? So what. His ego got bruised? I’m white and every time I go to the bank, even though the bank staff knows me, I have to show ID for certain transactions. Time to grow up.
You have a bank account? You have ID? That's racist!!!

I’ve said it before: these violent BLM thugs would get nowhere had our main stream media not turned everything they say and do into front page news. While enduring this may be difficult, my prediction is that BLM, like the Black Panthers, will go too far one day (if they haven’t already) and will end up just like the Panthers: a fringe lunatic group on the outskirts of society.

The Feds always “investigate” these incidents, but it’s usually government showboating and nothing ever comes of it. Know why? Because to sustain a deprivation of civil rights claim, the government has to prove that race was a primary factor in these shootings. Since race alone usually plays no major part of these incidents, no case.
Maybe he should work in a hospital in an all-black neighborhood so he wouldn’t have to work on whites and be conflicted. Then, again, he probably won’t make as much money. Black victimization in action.

After what just happened in Dallas, I think this outpouring of support from ordinary citizens gave these officers a tremendous boost psychologically. I think this was a needed positive reminder for them that most law-abiding people don’t hate the police.

Spot on. However, good people coming forward to support law-enforcement doesn’t get as many headlines as hate-driven violence. That’s why you don’t hear about it as much.
