1. Personal / Private Gain – No, random eminent domain for personal enrichment – a mall, an apartment complex should not qualify
2. Serves the national interest (and this is a pretty high bar or at least should be). I would think you can work with the border land owners to work out something equitable given the impact effects an entire nation, and an individual./corporation does not personally benefit or gets enriched as a result.
This distinction was made very clear in New Hampshire. It is obvious Cruz has not changed his position, he supports #2 but not #1.
Either Jon Street is extremely unfamiliar with politics or he is deliberately writing a hit piece against Cruz. Either way Blaze editorial staff should know better.

Looking at the voting results, Cali is Blue in the coastal, big cities. It is surrounded my rural red. Same story is likely nationwide. Big city dominated that influences everything else

Hope the school district fight this and gives NO money or settlement. He broke up a fight. Grew up in the hood so been there, done that. These days might as well get in a fight to get paid off. Suckers…

The man is wicked smart, who is also principled, and that scares the socialist side of the Dems. They know he will rip them apart. Go Ted Go!

SMH Doug. Even my hoop hommies know the difference you’re lucky your day job is worthy/special. You are entitled to your opinion but at least get informed. Special announcers box for you – think remedial. now if I can only stop the boys from laughing at our a**.

Thanks for calling that point, and ABC out. It truly was A WTF moment after everyone’s effort to support the Nazarene fund. Is WTF not kosher/ Sunday school acceptable? :)
I think ABC is both unaware and disconnected. Hope they try being a human versus just ramming a story out. U still would like to think that is the worst of it, and not maliciousness. Yeah rose colored glasses are on.
“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Really? Woman is the definition of moron. It takes all kinds. SMH….

Keep in mind this is ONLY the first round. Unlike the US, France has a multi round setup. If anything is shows the frustration and fear of the French people. Focus on round 2 and see how many seats they actually pickup. That is where actual influence (power) will come from. Also note, like in the US, the low voter turnout this time around. Much, much lower than usual

Too bad the Prez did not call for National Shall Issue in his Oval office address. A bridge too far for this admin; but not the next one if we get it right.

LOL. Now hear this. Clean up of Ryan is now underway. Step one, show distance between reviled statement and subject. Rinse and repeat until taken as truth.

Two have already resigned. You MUST now be the 3rd sacrifice at the altar of correctness. Reap what you sow…..

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Guess they never heard of him……

we need to stop simply reacting to challenges the progressives/socialists toss out. Start going offensive on the programs and policies so near and dear to them. Make them burn time and effort defending as much as they to tear down. It does work both ways
It would help if conservatives actually had, you know, a plan for anything.
Agreed! These "whacko birds" are always attacking...chipping away at our civil rights. We are always defending against the hubris of these incompetents. People who commit crimes use their freedom with which to do that. Mr. Sanders would crack down on peoples freedom next. After all, you need freedom AND a "semi automatic ASSAULT weapon to kill. No freedom...no crime...Utopian totalitarian state.

Don’t be hating on the black bear? Then Polar and brown may have a beef with ya. Just saying….

Pissed cause others are pissed. Let’s all be perpetually pissed. It does not matter the reasons; just because, right? #BigBootiesMatter

given the rejection of previous two state solution, you would think we would stop trying to create one, and move them to another Arab country or countries. That would be a different approach. Obviously easier said than done, but why not re-direct the pressure. Whether we want it or not, this conflict will escalate before it gets resolved.

WTH? what is wrong in our society that we somehow do not appreciate life? How does an 11 year old “child” get the idea of harming someone, let alone killing someone, is even remotely acceptable. Parental neglect? Abuse? SRI’s?
There is something more deeply, profoundly wrong with us as a society. This is not something so simple as a weapon. How do you create or make a good parent, I do not know but we need to try. How do you generate respect for life?? I do not know but we need to try

The real point that should be called out is Al Jazeera is NOT a news outlet. It is a propaganda entity.

Odd that the same tactic that is used in Iraq and Afghanistan (targeting police, police HQ) is happening here. Hmmmm. Perhaps my tin hat needs adjusting but I find the parallel oddly absent from the discussion
