    Racist? It is the Latinos who are asking for and are most affected by the policy. Truth is racist?

    There are still too many unanswered questions. Why was Stevens in Benghazi on 9/11? Why did the terrorists attack there in such a skilled way and then not brag about it? Why were our people so concerned for their safety? Why didn’t BO and HC act on the concerns? Why were all the personnel bullied into silence? We already knew what is in this report. The “stand down” issue is one of semantics and the response about response time and availability of responders doesn’t even begin to answer the real questions. Someone is going to write a detailed book about this and then we we get the real time lines, etc. Meanwhile, McCain and Graham were right about needing a select committee from the beginning. Everything gets too confused without subpoena powers and methodical investigation. This pool was way to muddy from the start, including leaving the compound open for looters. Remember the Clintons. None of us doubt the dead bodies buried to protect them and no one thinks Hillary’s real estate deals were real. We know the facts about Monica, etc. but nothing was “proven”. Susan Rice is still a lying weasel just like her bosses.

    Once again we have the straw man. The republicans are against immigration reform so the president had no choice but to act. They didn’t pass the bipartisan bill, so they aren’t going to act in the future. Are we forgetting that the republicans intentionally put this off until after the election because there was no chance of anything good happening under the dems? It is like the behavior of an abusive parent who tells the child to clean his room and then immediately punishes the child for not acting fast enough. I for one am so sick and tired of this paternalistic liberal mindset. This pastor wants what he wants more than he wants what is right.

    The big difference between Christianity and all other religions is the personal relationship with Jesus. To know him is to love him and I am glad this guy got to know him. It is disturbing that he is a pastor and didn’t know Jesus. Let this be a lesson to each of us. If your pastor doesn’t know Jesus well enough to love him, you need to go elsewhere.

    Bill Cosby admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock quite a few years ago, so we know he is at least somewhat messed up in the sexual arena. What bothers me about what I am seeing regarding the current allegations is that the women say they were under the influence when the encounter happened. One of them admits to drinking and taking drugs herself and has hazy memories about the rape itself. Another claims he drugged her. The claims are not provable and the victims themselves are hazy about what occurred. Why, pray tell, is is now that they are finding the need to bare their souls and seek justice? I know it was triggered by a comedian who called him a rapist but that doesn’t explain the furor it is creating. I know I may be just way too cynical and suspicious but I smell a BO-Sharpton-Jackson odor in the timing of this.

    If you paid attention, you would see that she deliberately used clothing as part of the test. She was not just whining about fat-shaming, she was addressing the whole issue. Also, note that there wasn’t a Brangelina in the whole bunch of scoffers. Is the underlying thought “At least I don’t look that bad”? That is a dangerous game, if so. I appreciate her courage and self-awareness to be able to look at herself in the shadow of other people’s disdain. I’ll bet she has lots of pictures without the critics in the background. Not everyone is shallow, arrogant and mean.

    Well, well, well, don’t you sound like a great guy? And if you are born with a big nose, or ugly ears, or whatever? Is it all based on whether or not you have the ability to change? Where did you get your information about obesity being a choice? Have you lived the life of those who have tried and tried and ultimately failed. Have you been in the skin of someone who will have his or her stomach cut out (mostly) in order to get thin and then still may end up obese? Be very sure, Mojo-man, that I would far rather meet this photographer than you. I am sure you are quite the physical specimen on the outside but you are truly ugly inside and you showed it to me.

    When the headline should have read “Terrorism attack on Jerusalem synagogue leaves 4 Israeli’s Dead”, there isn’t much excuse for the rest of it. These attacks are being blamed on conflict over the Temple Mount. That is an issue on which the “Palestinians” are clearly wrong and they are the ones inciting the conflict. Incite a conflict, retaliate against the conflict and then claim victimhood. Great game if you can get away with it….and they are.

    The “stupid” voters have spoken. We have proven there are enough of us “stupid” people left who can vote the walking brain trusts right out of office. So, Mr. Brain Trust Dean, gather up all of your friends and go find a place to drown your fears in a sea of booze. Meanwhile, we stupid people will destroy the nation by making sure the people who make the decisions are people who actually are legally able to do so. Has anyone noticed that the only people making the “voter ID suppresses the minority vote” claim are the Walking Brain Truster’s like Dean? I have yet to see a real “no ID” person make the claim. (Thank God they have the Brain Trust to speak for them.)

    The ridiculous part is that anyone with $5 in their wallet and any idea of what to do with it knew that the whole BOcare thing was a disaster even before the Wicked Witch of the West said we’d have to pass the law to find out what was in it. Lied to does not mean stupid. Once they started working on the law we were stuck. As loud as we screamed, they didn’t listen and manipulated and schemed and yelled until they passed it in the middle of the night via a series of bribes. In the next election, we voted some but not enough of them out. Next time, they got BO re-elected by more lies and mobilization of the truly stupid voters. This time we voted a lot more of them out and now we are hearing the truth right out of their own mouths. And people wonder why we watch Fox News. At least some of this is heard there. I don’t understand why these Gruber clips are just now being aired, so I don’t trust the timing. But by comparison MSNBC and everything between them and Fox can take a flying leap off a short pier and I will clap and cheer as they go into the drink.

    His option was to write, give and be graded on other speeches in front of his class. Clearly more difficult than simply reciting the pledge. The school district is wrong here.

    A lot of the comments here center on the technology of the hack and the ability to do it without Sharyl’s knowledge. If I understand it correctly from what she has said in interviews, etc., her computer would go on and off in the middle of the night and other strange events occurred to mess with her files. This just shows one of multiple incidents. The real story here is that she outed Holder and crew on Fast and Furious. Her bosses dropped the story like a hot potato after she got it all together. When she continued to pursue it, this kind of stuff happened. This is a big freakin’ story.

  • [5] October 31, 2014 at 3:49pm

    This is only a small part of the story. She has kids and had numerous intimidating events happen after she did her work on fast-and-furious. They were trying to scare her but she has courage and is standing up.

  • [13] October 31, 2014 at 3:45pm

    You really need to understand the history of Sharyl Attkisson before you dismiss this out-of-hand. She is extremely credible and has little to gain by lying about this and making something up in order to sell books or whatever.

    It reminds me of the tactics anti- war groups in colleges used to get us to go against the Viet Nam war and the tactics the same people used years later to get us to join unions. Absolutely it is meant to unnerve the person to whom it is sent and get compliance by fear. I would call that threatening.

    Lance Ford appears to be part of a movement (which includes the likes of Rick Warren) who want to reimage the church. They emphasize concepts like “missional” and “community” to create a more open and welcoming Christianity. They deemphasize sin in an attempt to “embrace” sinners. All are ostensibly good concepts and are what drive most of the megachurches that attract the under-forty crowd. They are accompanied by quality rock music and sermons that make the audience feel good. The only problem: a lot of what they do is not scriptural and the churches seem to be fraught with leadership problems (Mars Hill for example). The reality is that the church is out of favor because we are a very sinful people and don’t want to be accountable to God or man for doing what feels good to us.

    Woodles, your response is bizarre as I absolutely said nothing about the comparative merits of the religions. Why do you rail so hard against truth? My horse must actually be very high if you are so certain of my bias without my saying it at all.

    You have to wonder how these think-tank “intellectual” kinds of guys get the platform to tell us all how to think. He is right about the artificial nation-state boundaries in the mid-east but extremely simplistic in his discussion of what founded them. He is also very wrong about the “community” aspect of religion. While both Christians and Muslims value community, each religion has a book that is the universal guideline for its practice. That book applies to individuals as well as the collective and crosses all cultural, geographic and generational boundaries. The book of the Christians teaches a very different message from the book of the Muslims. That little device that they talk about at the beginning of this video is very applicable to this discussion. The orifice from which he pulls his opinion could well use a plug.

    I agree that this is a trap for the Kleins. It will be interesting to see how they handle it. They can take the money in good faith but it will certainly be used to smear them. The donor has messed up theology.
