Basically, in a nutshell, the gop establishment is bought and paid for by corporate America, mainly through the chamber of commerce. Our votes mean nothing. They will put in office who THEY want in office regardless of “grassroots” movements or anything else.
Needless to say, Cruz is NOT their candidate so he stands zero chance of being elected, like it or not, accept it or not. The facts and proof are in the link and it’s sublinks.
I don’t like it any more than anyone else but the truth is what it is. Our voting system is bought and paid for and our votes mean nothing. It’s just theater. They know enough people will not beg aware of their plan and manipulations so enough will vote to fulfill their needs.
It’s just math and bush can win with only around 15% support because of how many there are to split up the rest of the votes. That is why they are in the race. Go read the links.

Why do we need another establishment politician?
But Cruz is against the establishment you say!! BUT BUT!!
Does Cruz accept pac and super pac money? YES
Where does that money come from? Corporate donors
Will the donors expect payment in kind for their donations? YES
Hence, Cruz is an establishment candidate like the rest of them owned by corporate America.
He may mean well, he may look good and smell good but he is still bought and paid for.
That is the system we have, like it or not.
Trump is the only one at the moment capable of breaking that mold. He’s paying his own way.
Is he the best. Nope
Will be accomplish anything? Probably no more than anyone else. We’re already toast.
What he will hopefully do is destroy the gop establishment system. THAT by itself is worth my vote.
Otherwise it’s the same ol same ol. Corporate America controlling the government from top to bottom and our votes meaning NOTHING.
Besides Cruz doesn’t have a chance. Bush has enough corporate money to outlast Cruz and if Trump wasn’t in, the vote is still split too much for him to get traction. The gop establishment totally has many ways to keep Cruz from being elected.
 August 25, 2015 at 9:05pm
Is it legal to give money to support politicians? Yep. Nothing wrong there.
Do other politician admit they are being bought by that money? Nope. they just take it and keep quiet.
Trump also said he was all for transparency in the giving. So everyone would know who gave money to who.
There is at least a chance that Trump will not be controlled by outside money.
There is ZERO chance that any of the other candidate will NOT be controlled by corporate money. EVERY ONE OF THEM WILL. That ALL have pacs and super pacs that are totally funded by corporate America. They will ALL be beholden to those donors.
THAT is being a lemming, allowing that to continue to happen to us in every election. Them placing who THEY want in place and leaving us with no other choices except to support them or not vote.
At least Trump has a chance to stick it in their eye ans twist it. If he doesn’t, we certainly won’t be any worse off that we would be with bush.
 August 25, 2015 at 8:54pm
So. What he says it still right is it not?
Attack what he says, not the person and see how that weighs out.
As a businessman he plays by the established rules. As a president he will be enforcing and helping shape those rules. If he does what he says he will, the rules will then change for the businessmen too, will they not?
That will also include him and I bet he will STILL be successful. If cheap labor is not nobody can hire them, right?
Am I giving him a pass. Heck yea. He’s sticking it to the corrupt gop establishment in a way they have needed for decades.
 August 25, 2015 at 4:33pm
Just how do you see your candidate winning? Please provide his path through the first nine primaries.
It’s not possible. The gop establishment already has it set up in their favor and Cruz is NOT in their favor.
He will be out of money by that time and forced to drop out. Just like all the rest except for bush and Trump.
Trump chances against a democrat are horrendous so why don't you tell me how you think Trump will become president? By the way Cruz doesn't have money problems, he'll be just fine. If you want a real conservative with a proven track record who will fight for you and get rid of all of the Obama's crap policies Cruz your man.
Right now, Cruz has the largest, and most "real" grassroots movement going. Trump's funding isn't great outside of his own money.
The upcoming debates will launch Cruz higher. He's raising more grassroots money than any other Rep candidate. THIS is what will elevate him, despite the establishment's opposition.
Wow ...you are seriously delusional if you think Trump with all of his baggage will win. The main stream media and liberals love that Trump will be the nominee because they know how to attack him and they know all of his baggage.
Why do you think they cover him so much over all of the other candidates combined?
 August 25, 2015 at 4:30pm
Yet, none of the other candidates, including Cruz represent more of the same beck? You’ve lost it buddy.
This is all nothing more than theater, including you. Bread and circus and you are a huge part of it.
I don’t particularly like Trump as a president but at least he’s not directly part of the gop establishment and that means something at this point.
ANYTHING to break the establishment system at this point, even Trump.
A guy who has, admittedly, given money to politicians so he can get favors from them is not part of the GOP (or DNC) establishment? Are you sure about that? He has been part of the game. What makes you so sure he won't fall right back in bed with them when he becomes president? Use your brains people. Make sure of the character of the person you choose to follow. You may be just one of the lemmings being lured over the cliff.
 August 19, 2015 at 11:30pm
Like bush would even know what conservative really is. Go away. We have no need for you.
 August 19, 2015 at 4:20pm
Yet, he attacks Trumps and his wife with statements that were totally unneeded and served no real purpose. Then turns around and preaches to us not to do it.
Beck you just don’t get it. Priorities really don’t matter at this point. You can’t prioritize chaos. It just happens.
Supporters of Trump at this point mainly just want action but mainly action that is against what the GOP establishment is pushing.
That way we accomplish two things at once. We stick it in the eye of the GOPe and we get something done that needs to be done, such as abiding by immigration laws and protecting our Country from further invasion.
If you want to continue to give out teddy bears, feel free. We prefer action that actually helps OUR Country and not the invaders of our Country. Love them all you want, just do it in THEIR Country, not ours.
Keep in mind that Cruz, who you support Beck, is just as much establishment as any since he receives money from pacs and super pacs. They OWN him just like the own ALL the establishment candidates. They ALL are corporate slaves. Trump is not. He’s financing his own campaign. So no matter how conservative Cruz might be, he’s owned.

IF that is true then, yes, they are to be congratulated. IF it is true it is one of the VERY few times that has happened and I AM a veteran. I’ve experienced military political correctness as it’s worse.
Generally and sadly, the “new” military is very willing to lower standards to meet the politically correct agenda.
Certainly there are a few women in this Country that can meet the high standards set by training such as this. There are also a few that can perform in combat at near the level of a man with the same training. Those are VERY few and far between though and not the norm.
My fear is that this will be forced to become the norm and that is not physically possible without lowering the standards.
 August 17, 2015 at 10:47pm
Now I want to hear how much the standards were “bent” to make this happen.
If not at all then they deserve congratulations.
If even one iota of it was changed so they could succeed, then the program should be scrapped because it has totally lost it’s meaning and the rangers that went before them should all make that feeling known.
Unfortunately, the commander was brought up on harassment charges at the graduation when he made the comment,
"Just look at those ladies, What a pair."
EEO will begin the re-education process and the commander keeps saying "I was talking about the two ladies, no, I mean not their "Ladies" but them."
Bill Clinton did call him afterwards to ask, "Could you get me their number, I want to "Console" them, besides, Hillary is out of town, no what I mean?"
When I was in the Air Force there were a few times I had to bail a female out of trouble and then there were the PT tests with a standard for women and a standard for men... You be the judge
The problem is that even if the standards were not lowered not even ever so slightly in the case of these two women, and even if they graduated honorably after having completed the course in every bit as much strenuous and grueling detail as the men did (and if they did then as you say they deserve all the respect as the men who have also completed it, do), then I believe that, it still could be a first step in eventually lowering the standards because somewhere along the line, some feminist or feminist group will complain that 'not enough' women are graduating and the course is 'sexist' and must change to make sure more women are 'given the opportunity' to call themselves rangers.
I agree, I bet they changed the standards for them to pass through.
Just a few of questions from an old infantryman
1-How will they be quartered in the battlefield?
2-Are they taking a week off every month so they don't give up their units position if the enemy is using dogs?
3-Is their platoon going to have a woman corpsman just for them?
But just look at how well lowering standards has worked out for Police and Fire departments. It will "improve" our fighting forces the same way.
That's the FIRST thing I thought Champ... how much was bent to get them through it. Hang time minimums instead of pull ups ...
I could guarantee no woman would ever be able to make men USMC boot camp.
Just the psychological part let alone the phisical part.
Army I'm not surprised and I'm sured they were caried and helped if not overlooked the standards just to be politically correct
 August 14, 2015 at 7:05pm
Beck, all the things you listed are ALSO what most of the GOP establishment believes IF they could possibly be honest, which of course they have proven they can’t.
SO what do we get with Trump?
We get to stick it in the eye of the GOPe. PERIOD!
This is about vengeance and brining down the GOPe and destroying their system of lies and corruption.
There is no saving this Country, no need in fooling ourselves any longer, let’s just bring it all down and start over and that begins with the GOP since they are the biggest liars and thieves. They were supposed to be FOR small government which is what most of us wanted all along. They lied.
So, we are merely going to welcome them, the GOPe, to the bottom of the dung heap that is now America where the the rest of us have been forced to reside thanks to them.
See it’s really simple Beck. We want to BURN DOWN THE GOPe and anyone who supports them!
"See it’s really simple Beck. We want to BURN DOWN THE GOPe and anyone who supports them!"
No offense but that seems about as sensible, and effective, as those monks that light themselves on fire in protest.
Very good post! I know it is disheartening but I do believe that is what it will take to get the attention of the American people. Get them off their electronic devices. Edward Bernays was right.
Glenn: How many years have you been complaining about the direction this country been headed? The country has never been this bad and on every matrix. Yet no one in the Political class/elites (RNC or DNC) has done anything to stop or reverse it. Look at our choices we have in this race…
We want a divorce!!! Not the same group of idiots who caused this problem.
We need someone who fights. Trump is so non-traditional and we’ll need a non-traditional candidate to deal with this mess.
 August 11, 2015 at 7:16pm
So? Like the others won’t too?
I don’t really care about his background. I care about destroying the GOP establishment and all that are a part of it. If Trump can help with that, so be it.
I don’t need any help. I fully see and realize we’re screwed no matter what we do. America is dead as a Constitutional Republic.
This is now about bringing down those that facilitated it.
August 11, 2015 at 7:13pm
SO? What’s your point?
Make your choice. A socialist state created by democrats or a fascist corporate state created by republicans. Two heads of the same multi-headed tyrannical government monster.
Either way we lose.
MAYBE Trump is playing for Hillary, maybe not. Either way, at least we can burn down one party by getting Trump through the primary and into the general election and not giving them the satisfaction of shoving THEIR candidate, bush, down our throats again.
Personally, I think Trumps ego is too big to let Hillary win, if that is where you’re going with this. If it gets that far I think he will go all out to beat her.
...... in a General election with ALL the Country voting, Trump gets 15-18% TOPS. The only delusional ones are small fringe of the GOP.... the Democrats and Independents will go for the Democrat if Trump is the only other choice.
 August 11, 2015 at 6:37pm
Yes he is.
Granted, Cruz is probably the best among the establishment but he is STILL establishment which means eventually he will play their full game, no matter what he says now.
He WILL go along to get along if he’s elected. If he can raise enough to get elected over bush, he will be TOTALLY bought and paid for. You don’t raise the kind of money needed to beat bush with owning someone big time. Just the way the crooked, corrupt game is played.
Trump has his own money, doesn’t need to raise a ton of it to beat bush so he can go in basically free and clear of the establishment ball and chain.
Trump is ego driven. He will NEED the support of the people to feed that ego. If elected, we MIGHT have a president that would actually listen to us for a change. If for no other reason than to feed his ego. I can live with that rather than having someone totally sold out to corporate handlers.
 August 11, 2015 at 6:27pm
Don’t fool yourself, Cruz and Carson are just as much a part of the establishment as any of the rest. Cruz ended up backing McConnell and Carson is only there because the establishment needs a black to run. He has no money or real backing.
Trump is the ONLY real outsider who has played on both sides of the field and can hurt both parties. He’s connected enough that he knows where the skeletons are buried and they FEAR HIM.
 August 11, 2015 at 6:19pm
It’s official, the money got Beck. Yet another establishment media shill.
You just don’t get it Beck. We ALL dislike Trump but we HATE the GOP establishment with a passion that is still growing by leaps and bounds. We will do ANYTHING to see them brought down, even to voting for someone like Trump.
What is there to lose?
We either have a democrat leading us to a socialist state or a republican leading us to a fascist corporate state. There’s NO DIFFERENCE. Both are tyrannical, enslaving, serf making monsters.
If electing Trump or anyone else outside of the establishment can help drive a stake in the monster’s heart, I’ll vote for them.
This is about vengeance now. America is dead and shills like you have helped keep us distracted for far too long. We’re now becoming very focused and vengeance is our focus.
Now, the media shills, politicians, and all the others that helped to bring this Country down can join the rest of us at the bottom of the dung heap formerly known as America.
He's pushing Cruz, not exactly the darling of the establishment.
 July 31, 2015 at 1:45pm
So the executive branch of our government, which is supposed to enforce law, has determined that it is ok NOT to follow the laws it deems it does not have to follow.
So, logically, since that branch is the CEO of the Country, it would appear that they are setting the example for the rest of us to follow.
So, as long as we “feel” that what we think about a law is correct, we can obey or not any law on the books?
If we follow the example being set by our CEO, that would definitely be the case and seems to me to be a very logical argument in court. The precedent has been set by there being ZERO prosecutions for disobeying/disregarding law as it is written.
It’s a matter of time before this is pushed to the greatest extent possible. Of course, we all know the truth is do as I say not as I do.
 July 30, 2015 at 3:05pm
Poaching and legal hunting are two totally different things be sure to make that distinction.
You might also want to check out WHY the poaching is happening.
It’s because of policies put in place by the black socialist government that is basically causing it’s people to starve and so they are forced to hunt anything and everything to merely put food on the table.
Before Mugabe i came to power around 2000 Zimbabwe was the bread basket of Africa. His policies force this killing of animals, protected or not, to happen so people can eat.
As to whether, populations need culling or not, that can vary greatly from place to place, even within the same Country. So without full knowledge of the situation on the ground, which you do not quote, calling someone a doofus could just as easily apply to you or anyone else without the full information needed to make that judgement.
He has influence because he speaks out and many people respect his opinions. If you disagree, feel free to get on the “stage” with him and present your thoughts to see if your thoughts garner the same respect.
To this point though, you have not been successful.
Withmy89vision's points ARE more respected than Ted Nugent's...as evidenced by the country's reaction to Ted Nugent's opinion. They had no permit and they left the edible parts behind. THEREFORE, even Ted Nugent disagrees with Ted Nugent. Also, I think he's being generous towards Nugent because they only one I recall being a hit was Catscratch Fever...which I didn't like, but to each his own.
There you go again! Claiming that the US reaction is against Ted! Have you polled the entire nation, or are you just listening to all of your bleeding heart liberal friends. It's ignorant comments like that which make you unbelievable (and not in a good way).
July 29, 2015 at 5:41pm
Why would anyone expect him to see them? That’s absurd. I would actually be surprised if the answer would have been that he had seen them.
He has no interest in such trivial matters as murder and human body part trafficking, especially if it involves baby humans that have been ruled to by people like him to be insignificant blobs.
The only interest he might have, would be if someone had equated the size of the baby to a golf ball, that might have gotten his momentary attention but even that would have been short lived since to him all life is cheap and expendable unless it’s his own.
 July 22, 2015 at 7:31pm
By confessing your sins, asking for forgiveness, and then accepting Christ as your personal savior, the only way to salvation, there also comes responsibility.
That responsibility is to cease sinning to the best of your ability, which means making a true, sincere effort.
In other words, faith without the works to prove it, is not true faith which calls into question true salvation.
Rationalize it and justify it any way you want, to try to make it fit the lifestyle you want to live, but it does not change the truth that is there in black and white in the Bible.
So I see no divide whatsoever, follow the bible as written and intended, not as interpreted by those who think they have something to gain by a loose translation. In the end they really gain nothing except their own damnation.
