    @Jesuswasablackman: Ted Cruz is a Native Citizen because his mother is a Native American (ie: born in the US) and his father is Cuban who was working in Canada at the time. If his father like communism, why did he Cuba, the Communist Paradise?

    Ted Cruz knows what it’s like to live under Canadian Socialism, the kinder-gentler Socialism, and knows how bad that is compared to a Republic. President Obama has an idealized vision of how great Socialism is but has never had live under it.

    Seeing as how the Catholic church has one of the largest worldwide memberships and the power the Pope has over world events and the fact that it is historic to have two living Popes, it makes sense that news from the Vatican would dominate media. The Westboros notwithstanding.

    How many people can say they’ve lived through two Papal elections.

    Not being a Catholic, I only view the Pope’s comments through a political lens.

    Has Russell Crowe converted to Islam? Why would he use an Arabic phrase for the leader of the Catholic church?

    Wouldn’t a Hebrew or even Latin term be more appropriate?

    It looks like all those seaside houses were relocated away from the games site.
    I wonder if those people were given fair market value for their land? Or were they removed at gunpoint ala Stalin.

    Not all of us from NY are like that… Rochester is a “Democrat” stronghold in Upstate NY.

    I agree… Really? You didn’t want to touch it?

    I hope she didn’t say the same thing to her husband on her wedding night.

    It ought to be a law that every school teach gun safety… You don’t need to ever own one, but you should know enough to be safe around them.

    Whatever you do, don’t ask to see what’s under the coat!

    And, where is Chris Kyle in this list???

    You remembered Tom Clancy, but left out Vince Flynn, a good friend of the show???

    I’m a fan of Clancy, also, but Flynn was actually on the show many times.

    And, Helen Thomas??? Really?? Wasn’t she undead for the last 50 years…

    She should have flown like our elected officials, on a Private/Chartered Jet. There’s a reason many companies charter private planes for employee use.

    John Wayne is my all-time favorite actor! His life is interesting and he was always an ardent Anti-Communist and unapologetic about it! He even made a movie that supported Senator McCarthy’s claims about Communists operating in the US called Big Jim McClain.

    And had the only Pro-US Vietnam movie to make a profit during the Vietnam Era (The Green Berets). Best scene ever is when they go through the list of supplies from world-wide Communists in Vietnam (USSR, Checzh, China, etc.) for the Liberal journalists’ benefit.

    The Big Mick:

    Actually, you’re wrong about Clancy signing off on that change in The Sum of All Fears. I saw an interview with him on C-Span’s BookTV and he said he sold the rights to the book and they could do whatever they wanted to it. After he sold the rights to the movie, he had no further say in what went on screen and what was changed/cut.

    Some authors try to retain some control by co-producing the films, like Stephen King. But most authors don’t. Even Brad Thor said if a movie is made from his book, and he says only certain things about it (he’ll be contractually obligated to promote it), he doesn’t like the movie. If he raves about it, then he loves it.

    This is sad, Tom Clancy was the author that got me started reading the “Techno-Thrillers” I still read his books, but his later books were not as good as Brad Thor and Vince Flynn. His non-fiction series are also great books about the various military branches.

    That’s two great authors this year we lost, Vince Flynn and now Tom Clancy.

    Cardinal of The Kremlin is still one of my all time favorite novels! Red Storm Rising is second!

    RIP Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn.

    Something strange is going on with Papa Johns. A few weeks ago, 6 stores in the Albany-Schenectady area closed without any notice to all of its employees. They were all owned by the same franchisee.

    Now, we have only one Papa Johns in the Albany area left, owned by a different franchisee.

    Still no explanation to the media.

    Got to love the Asylum, can’t wait to watch this tonight.

    Also, Sharktopus is the BEST MOVIE EVER! Jersey Shore Shark Attack was a close second and Pirahnaconda wasn’t that bad either. All Corman movies, but the Shartopus song was much better than the pirahnaconda song.

    Isn’t Fox News Watch the show currently with Cal Thomas, Jim Pinkerton, and others? I believe its hosted by John Scott? I love the show the way it is, I usually catch it on the weekends.

    If Kurtz is going to retool this show, I expect Cal Thomas to be dropped in lieu of some leftist. This doesn’t bode well for Fox News’ future.

    CSPAN has a live feed if audio keeps cutting out. I had to switch over a few times until the audio came back here.

    Slight correction…
    I read 11 books in sequence back to back stopping before American Assassin. I was looking forward to reading the last 3 and his forthcoming book back to back by years end.

    When I heard Glenn mention he had cancer awhile back, I began to worry. I started reading his books because of Glenn Beck and went through 8 books (in sequence) over the past year. Now, I’m doing the same with Brad Thor this year. By year’s end I planned to be current for both authors. I have the next 4 Flynn books ready to go on my shelf. They are best read back to back.

    I was hoping that he’d beat cancer, but with no new appearances from Flynn lately, I began to worry.

    Flynn’s books are all really, really good. Once you start them, you cannot stop until your done with them. Many a night I had to stay up late to finish a book and wished my bus commute was longer to continue reading.

    RIP Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp.

    I was looking forward to the film version of Mitch Rapp which was reportedly in the works, but now who knows if we’ll get it and if we do, will it do justice to the character?

    ‘Tis truly a sad day.
