“desperate for attention”…a truer oberservation isn’t possible.
Someone once wrote the easiest way to get hurt is to get between a camera and either Mark Cuban or Jerry Jones. It is strange that both of these guys come from the same town.

1) What assurance is there that this ‘Think Tank’ is objective and has no conflict of interest?
2) How much will the debt increase under Hillary?
3) Let’s keep in mind the current president said it was unpatriotic to have the debt at @ $11 trillion and then ran it to $20 trillion.
Is Blaze capable of ANY objective reporting anymore?
Well in the Blaze’s defense it is really really really hard to find anything negative on Hillary. I mean you have open your eyes and stuff.
The latest estimate shows Clinton’s economic plan would add $200 billion to the national debt over the next decade, while Donald Trump’s would add $5.3 trillion – or 26.5 times as much as Clinton’s – according to a new report from the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB).
Mula, the case being that Hillary will definetly spend and steal significantly more than Trump, by CBS numbers, Hillary would have to raise taxes by more than 5.5 trillion dollars....
4) Would you be asking any of these questions if this was the opposite?
I'm willing to bet that this "think tank" did not model the dynamic of "if you want more of an activity, tax it less and conversely, the more you tax and activity the less of it you'll get."
I'll bet that when modelling Trump's tax cuts, they did not model increased commercial activity and therefore increased tax revenue, ala Reagan's and Kennedy's tax cuts. They likely also did not reflect the reduction in commercial activity when modelling Hillary's tax increases. They figure that people will just accept increased tax rates and continue the activity at the same rate. Liberals are always mystified when their increased tax rates result in reduced revenues due to reduced or alternate activity.
I don't remember the Blaze giving Obama a pass on his deficit spending. So, your point does not suggest the Blaze is being subjective here.

That is an insult to snakes.

It would be better if you posed that question to Cuomo.
 September 19, 2016 at 12:03pm
What could have possibly been Cuomo’s motivation in the first place to rush to make such a statement assuring anyone there was not a foreign component to this latest terrorist act? What resources or insight could he have where he even thought he could have arrived at such a conclusion so quickly?
He is an idiot apologist who cares more from terrorists than innocent lives.

Unfortunately in Powell’s case this is more than likely true, but thankfully it is not a universal allegiance. I think there are plenty of blacks that choose country over race.

Colin Powell lost the ability to be an authority figure on judgement when 8 years ago he decided to ignore a host of red flags and embrace BO. If he wants to call anyone a national disgrace, he should look no further than the candidate he deserted his Party for to embrace.
How about just have a marching band…Florida A&M’s would do fine. Celebrities had absolutely nothing to do with making the game popular…and they do nothing to honor or enhance the game. It’s time to get rid of the annual halftime circus that usually is put on by some narcissist with an overblown image of themself using the opportunity to ‘enlighten’ a captive audience. It is basically abuse of access to media. Most of us watch sports to get away from these types. The politicians should also be banned.
Articles like this picking and reframing numbers and points of contention are not of much use. The author more than likely is not a Trump fan, and when BO was running for POTUS, there were articles from the right that picked on similar issues. We are reduced to using common sense. The underlying points are that more cops are being killed, unemployment is worse than reported, ditto the economy, immigration is out of control and against the will of the majority of people, etc. Either you are on the side where you believe those things are true or you are not.
If someone was in fact interested in parsing words and truly checking out facts and figures, the only way they could BEGIN to reconcile is to put both sides in a room to present documentation and frames of reference…allowing each side to continue until all evidence was presented and checked out. In other words, it ain’t gonna happen. We must use common sense.

For the moment, assume Batey’s mother was indeed shocked and horrified that her son could be capable of not only the crime, but the mindset of her rapist son.
Are we to believe he left home to play football at Vanderbilt as a person of high moral character?
How did the transformation to becoming a hate-filled, violent racist happen in the next 2 years? Is this reason enough to suspect the environment at Vanderbilt? Did they teach him the victim mentality and that America is a bad place deserving of they type of violence and hatred he doled out in the form of abusing, humiliating, and damaging the true victim?
I don’t know anything about Vanderbilt’s culture, but it would seem they should be very concerned that such a transformation can take take place in the midst of their environment. With all the studies being conducted at the university level, it seems to me it would be appropriate and necessary to conduct a study on all things surrounding what turned Batey into an antisocial monster.
If they (the Board of Regents/Trust) have any conscience or concern, they should get to the bottom of this one way or another and either recognize there is a problem or Vanderbilt’s environment and culture had nothing to do with his evolution.
In the meantime, parents considering Vanderbilt as a place for their child’s college education should take into account the school’s action and/or inaction, and use common sense to connect the dots if the school is part of the problem.

Not just racist…OPENLY racist…and it seems that it doesn’t occur to the representatives and reporters on our side to put an accuser on the spot and force them to be accountable for their accusations by providing factual examples.

There are plenty of places where it is far more dangerous to be white. Take most of the south side of Chicago, for instance or plenty of areas in Baltimore. I’d bet the east side of Dallas is no picnic these days either.
Yeah really. If he cared about the Vets, he would have tried to help them, not screwed them over continuously.
Put our money where your mouth is Odumbio, who are we kidding, Barry is as worthless as a fly on horse manure.
Whenever a veteran calls a VA hospital it politely reminds them that suicide is an option. “If you are having an emergency please dial 911. If you are having thoughts of suicide please call the suicide hotline. If you are trying to reach someone, like your physician, please call back tomorrow at exactly 9:00AM and be prepared to be on hold for a few hours. Please don’t bother us during peak business hours as we are busy with other patients. Your physician may or may not be present at the time you get a response so leave a message. Goodbye.”
If we really cared about disabled vets, we would get rid of the VA, buy them an insurance plan and let them go to their own doctors.
Instead we force them in to a single payer, socialist system which everyone thinks they can fix with more gov't.
As a disabled vet being screwed by everyone who thinks the VA can be "fixed" all I can say is just wait - it's coming to you soon.
Where was Obama when our heroes were dying in Benghazi??
I could be wrong, but it appeared that Obama was checking emails or texts while sitting on the speakers dais during a hymn sung to our fallen heroes. I noticed the other military officers were looking at him from time to time. He would glance up for a moment then return to the phone or electronic device he was holding. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t reading his speech because his two trusty teleprompters were sitting there ready to go. Anyone else notice that? It just seemed a solemn moment that required strict protocol and attention.

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…
