Trump supporters are made up of far more than that. I consider myself a CC to the letter…but the time has passed for insisting on a traditional CC candidate. The primaries are the time for that, and no CC candidate got it done. We now have Trump…who is our guy for 2016. If anyone can’t see a difference between him and either Hillary or Sanders…it is because they don’t want to see it. We have made strides in Congress, but to think we can undo 2 generations of Liberalism gone wild in one election is just not feasible. It takes time and we’re getting there. Trump was not my choice in the primaries, but he’s what we have…which is better than what THEY have…and he’ll do OK.

This needs to be confronted with a nice big fat lawsuit. There is little room for even a liberal judge to determine that disagreeing with climate nonsense is still freedom of speech. If it’s not confronted, then count on more libtard administrators doing the same thing.

Very insightful reply. Even if Facebook were nothing more than a collection of airheads and Pollyannas, people refuse to acknowledge that their votes count just as much as a politically savvy member of MENSA. The fact that that the narrative has been seized by leftists across the media and education spectrum(s) should concern everyone that wants this country back on the right track. The clueless are engineered to think…and subsequently vote a certain way, and their numbers are growing even more. Ignoring social media is as big a mistake as can be made.

…the meeting was called between Facebook senior staff and conservative media leaders.
Um…how many of the media leaders there were technical enough to examine the algorithms, routines, and subroutines to confidently say there’s no problem? How about independant auditors that can tie specific IDs to logs that would capture suppression and/or modification? Basically this was nothing more than a meeting ‘expressing concern’ which was responded to with a likewise ‘sincere response’ articulating how seriously they took their policies and standards. Did Facebook offer to let someone perform an audit? Are they willing to discuss specific charges in the public square to debunk them? Of course not. Despite simple points such as I’ve presented, Beck is satisfied that there’s no shenanigans going on? Geez…
Well from what I read in the story, it would appear that Glen thinks the 'on button' to his computer, is a PEZ dispenser.

It is clear Eric Bolling dropped the ball on this opportunity to shut Juan’s mouth…he should have had these facts ready to go.
 May 18, 2016 at 8:34am
I’m a bit surprised Eric never mentioned what the real reasons were…I would have thought he’d know.
This was around the time IBM introduced the personal computer. A brand new THING that cost around $3k and were being bought by the truckload. Notice I didn’t say SHIPload…because they were actually made here too. Manufacturers, packagers, shippers, programmers, designers, etc….this created jobs by the millions.
Top that off with the fact congress actually shoved welfare reform down Clinton’s throat (he vetoed it and they wound up overriding)…for the double whammy. Savings by the billions in excessive welfare reined in…and a brand new industry that consumer America couldn’t get enough of.
It wasn’t anything to do with Clinton and them’s the facts, Jack.
The economy was already beginning to heal when Clinton took office and immediately, He and Hilldabeast tried to go on a spending spree and take over the health care system. America responded by throwing the democrats out of the house and senate for the first time in decades. Thus began the greatest economy ever until Bush's 7th year when Barry Soetoro came to office in the senate and the senate and house went back into democrat hands and the economy tanked and hasn't recovered yet.

Glad to see Daryl push back. He is passionate about his music to this day. Anyone that would like a better understanding of his musical roots should tune into ‘Live From Daryl’s House’ on MTV. (don’t worry…it is not typical MTV shlock…seriously…it is quite enjoyable).
There use to be a term of affection for white artists whose music contained black influence…it was called ‘Blue-eyed Soul’…and there were many in that category: Boz Skaggs, Spencer Davis, Young Rascals, Mitch Ryder, Michael McDonald….MANY MANY.
Leave it up to ‘Academia’ to just make up stuff to whine and complain about. Instead of music being something that brings people together, they’d rather give it a politically moronic term and use it for further divisiveness.

The college industrial complex gets the credit for this mindset. Generations of unfettered agitators and malcontents teaching and brainwashing young minds…cultivating hatred for the country…they now want what they want and are completely uninterested in factual evidence that conflicts with their mindset. If Fidel Castro were running here and promised ‘free’ tuition and healthcare, they’d vote for him. Bernie Sanders having followers is no surprise.
Right you are, but do not give the grammar and high schools short shrift, they prep them for the finishing schools of progressive indoctrination.
Yeah, it's a lot like rafael eduardo cruz having followers, actually... cubanadian "ted".

amendii…not sure if this response will line up right but it’s to your question.
I can probably give you more than one…
1) Trump has promised to secure the borders…nobody in the establishment or any other candidate has made it clear what they would do and they mostly choose to avoid the question.
2) He has promised to confront the one-sidedness of these trade agreements that not only pile onto the trade deficit…but escort our jobs overseas.
3) He is the only candidate that promised to repeal BOcare and delivered a plan to do it.
4) He has said loudly and clearly that he will suspend Muslim immigration until we’ve gotten a grip on what’s happening and how to stop it. Every other candidate is just too afraid to say anything.
There is plenty to like about Trump…and there is plenty to dislike about him. However, he is now our candidate and it serves no purpose to sit out the election and let things get exponentially worse. I am not a Trump fan, but I do believe he is at least not a Globalist.
Geetee, you are mistaken. While Trump was outspoken on these issues and pushed them to the forefront, other candidates had similar opinions and plans as well.

If hanging your hat on an adage makes you sleep well at night and gives you satisfaction in not voting, good for you. However, there’s another side to that logic…you are actually voting for the greater of 2 evils if you opt out.
Give me one conservative argument to support Trump. The argument must be based on Trump, not Clinton.
My vote will be going to a true conservative, not a liberal calling himself a Republican. My vote will not be wasted on Trump.
May 5, 2016 at 2:14pm
As I stated…both candidates have warts. To ignore Cruz’s ‘confusion’ on legislation encouraging more immigration…his cozy relationships with finanacial institutions…his dependence on the disproportionate contributions of a handful of donors…his capitalizing on delegates that subvert the voting process…is disingenuous. Perhaps Trump has seen the light…there were plenty that were against Reagan back in the day too as being a lightweight…liberal…etc. I don’t pretend to having the ‘key’ information making it clear who is the better candidate. What is clear is Trump’s positions now…the ones he has articulated over and over the past year…what he has promised in the public square for the world to hear…while all the other candidates (including Cruz) tap-danced around the hard-to-answer questions. If he does not follow through, then shame on him…but nobody can blame the electorate for wanting an outsider…it is the perpetual deceit of the GOP elites and professional pols that have caused the masses to look elsewhere. At this point our only choice is to support Trump…pray for him…and use our energy toward defeating Hillary.

Some polar opposition here between the Cruz and Trump camps.
I have my own reservations about both candidates. Trump from a Bill of Rights perspective, and Cruz from an about-face perspective. To pretend neither has warts cannot be supported with fact.
What I do know is that I understand how we got here.
Trump has identified several key hot-button issues.
1) Illegals in the country are rampant and becoming belligerent. The GOP elites won’t even discuss this, and not one other candidate has said what they would do to stop it. It may surprise some that there are actually laws that went through congress to build the fence, but over time people lost track or became disinterested and congress chose to ignore the law. Trump has said he’ll build the fence.
2) The trade imbalance is killing us. In addition to the deficit and deficit spending, we have another half-trillion leaving the country. Trump is the only one that has articulated how one-sidedly bad the current deal are and the effect they’ve had on the working class. Again, neither the GOP elites nor any other candidate wants to speak about it. Deal-making is probably Trump’s strongest suit. It’s gotten people’s attention.
3) We have BAD people coming into this country that are exploiting political correctness. The elites? Nothing to say…the other candidates…pretty much the same. Trump says he will stop it.
Pretending Cruz is better at all the above seems like an empty claim. Where’s the beef?
Perhaps the beef lies in consistency. 1) Trump in 2012 said Romney's immigration policy was "mean spirited" and that you could not deport 11 million people. Now he says the opposite. What changed? 2) Trump's answer to the trade imbalance is a trade war involving tariffs. Historically,that has always been disastrous. Cruz ( although he has pulled out) pushed deregulation and tax reduction which are free market principles held in contempt by Trump. 3) Yes,we have bad people coming into the country but back in 2012 Trump supported the "Dream Act". When did he suddenly notice that "bad people" were coming in. In other words, why do you believe him when he held totally opposite views a couple of years ago and his economic solutions are questionable? Of course, it does not matter now, we only have two progressives running for president.

…“She’s one of the most talented business leaders of modern times.”
Riiiiight. Perhaps Mr. Sweet should actually look at her ‘accomplishments’. Actually, she may fit right in with what’s going on in Washington, as she is quite experienced with creative accounting.
Pick someone else, Ted.

I would like to fly her in and set her up on a date with my son…or fly my son out to wherever she is.

Judge Nap may be 100% right, but it won’t matter a bit. Anyone that thinks President BO is going to allow an indictment to be handed down to the Democrat Party nominee is delusional. Absolutely no way, no how, no chance.
Correct. But Fox News can keep yelling about it for the ratings.

Not in the sense that someone is making me sit down in a room I cannot leave and turning it on. However…the number of unsolicited chat messages I receive…along with assorted phishing emails…and tracking that is done via cookie by purveyors that pay ‘legit’ sites to allow the track…then yes.

Technically, you have a point, but in reality keeping up with the types of ‘blocks’ to which you are referring, require continuous effort to keep up with those looking to circumvent such blocks. At one time there were efforts to make those that traffic in adult content use a .xxx type of suffix. This approach would be the most effective way to preserve everyone’s rights and allow those who do not want it in their lives to have a method to permanantly block it without maintenance. Of course this is fought tooth and nail by those profiting. That would be the best way to allow it for those that want it…and prevent it from those who do not. The adult industry is disingenuous when they say they do not want this content in the hands of minors. What they want…and currently have…is the ability to pour it on 24×7 to everyone…even those who are unwittingly exposed.

This is what parents are for.
I do however; agree with your characterization of the industry, but we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities...

Larry Flynt is just not a very nice guy.
He never has been, and seems to think he has a right to pollute society that trumps anyone’s right to put anything in place to keep it out of our faces.
