The questions I ask are: how craven does one have to be to use one’s social media company to conform to the wishes of a politician? How venal does one have to be to betray the trust placed in one’s company by its users?
And, how can one look at oneself in the mirror – especially when one must realise that the world is coming to understand what one has done and what the content of one’s character is?
It amazes me that many make their millions or billions here in America and then use it to burn America, i.e., Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Buffet, etc. With most of these, they are turning your profiles over to Obama's administration. I will not use social sites for this reason, and think Common Core a great gift of Bill Gates to further dumb down your children! Buffet and Gates love to spend their money in foreign countries rather than really helping America. However, they all get great tax breaks which they legally can and I don't berate them for following the law, but how they use their money makes me angry about their lack of patriotism!

Selecting someone purely on the basis of race is racism.
Only if the person is white. Voting for someone to be president just because of their color isn’t.

I’ve criticised my friend (Monk) for his rather vitriolic attacks on Mr Beck in the past when Mr Beck exhibits his obvious abhorrence for Mr Trump.
This time, however, I think that Monk has some justification. I was dismayed to see Mr Beck wheel in a psychologist, or whatever he is, to liken Mr Trump to Hitler and Mussolini. The was just silly, and I’m sure the exercise grated on the psyches of most thinking and fair-minded people.
While I believe that Mr Cruz would make a better leader of the free world, Mr Trump simply isn’t as bad as Mr Beck purports him to be. In fact, he has a number of excellent qualities – just not as many as Mr Cruz.
4 years ago, Beck called Newt Gingrich supporters "racist".
When it comes to politics and picking candidates, Beck has a long track record of being wrong.
Ironically, Beck is mostly right about Trump....And his fans hate him for it. Go figure.
disagree on Trump
look for my previous comments, facts about Trump, he is salesman a bold face liar who says what he needs to to gain influence. He just expanded the ethanol subsidy scam.
You'll also notice that you get irrationally attacked and trashed by Trump supporters for posting Trumps own quotes or facts.. they have become everything they claim to despise in Obama supporters.
Beck, Stu and Pat have been boneheads the way they mocked Trump, and I defended Trump from those type of attacks, but now the Trump supporters have become impervious to facts, completely devoid of any critical thinking.
and as for Monk,, he and many are under severe stress and internal conflict, the nation, the world is on the edge of the abyss, backing the right guy may be life or death for the nation..

I don’t agree with Judge Napolitano entirely.
Certainly Mr Obama would prefer to rule as a totalitarian, but suggesting that he waited until now to attempt to curb gun owner’s rights seems to me to be assigning the President too much guile.
I think that Mr Obama didn’t attack the Second Amendment when he had control of both houses because he knew that a successful infringement would seriously impact on his re-election chances.
Now, of course, he doesn’t have to care. Perhaps he’s searching to add something to his legacy – and well he might, given that everything that he’s done to date has either failed or is about to fail. To make matters worse for him, his various initiatives have been rightfully ridiculed and increasing numbers are realising that his profligate spending has demonstrated a mixture of fiscal incompetence and callous insouciance.
While Mr Carter may, or may not, have deserved the label of America’s worst president, depending on one’s world view, there is no doubt at all that history will affix that accolade to the incumbent without fear of serious contradiction.
He has damaged his nation and much of its citizenry beyond what anyone would have believed possible before he rested his arrogantly crossed feet on the Resolute desk…
He is demonstrating something that anyone with half a lick of sense realized long ago. Our system of government only works if the members are willing to actively defend it. Since the remaining Democrats in congress are not willing to defend the powers of congress there is no longer a functioning check of presidential power. The courts just take to long to act and what can they do if he ignores them without congress to back them up. When the Democrats in congress refused to remove Bill Clinton from office for obvious violations of the law they effectively ended this republic.
You and I see it that way, but the libbiest of Dem Libs is loving the Obama more and more every day.
I think with his arrogance he never thought that they would lose congress.
My favourite movie in much younger days, Vague. Back then, my parties often rang with the soundtrack.
Great days. Great memories…

It’s about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning here in New Zealand, Chrxtoph3r. The sky is clear and moonless.
And the stars look a little different today…

I think that he’s right to take his time, Sonoma. He has to get this right because there will be no going back to it again.
And, by God, if he doesn’t get it right, he will be crucified…

There was, Fo2.
They were advised that there was an Apache attack helicopter coming in to support them if I remember correctly.
1. Who advised the that the chopper’s arrival was imminent?
2. Was its arrival really imminent?
2. If so, who called the chopper off?
Sitting exposed on the roof to light up the target cost one of those four brave souls his life.
As we all want to know; who gave the “Stand down” order, and why?

I credit him for more than that, Seeker. That was presidential – a leader’s speech.
You’re right. He (and Mr Trump) have called out the media – which takes courage as they are a powerful political force and some are using that power nefariously.
Consider these recent developments:
For the upcoming Canadian elections, one of two left-wing parties promised the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation $115 million if they win. The other left-wing party promptly upped the bid to $150 mil should they prevail. How’s that for blatant bribery?
The Huffington Post (Germany) is posting the names and photos of people who comment opposing Islamic migration. Huffpo purports to be a news organisation and it begs the question; just what happened to their journalistic integrity? (That’s rhetorical.)
” It is now time: Let’s give this issue the necessary publicity finally. We have to deal with the sick thought-world of these people.” – Huffpo Germany http://www.huffingtonpost.de/2015/08/14/hass-kommentare-fremdenfeindlichkeit_n_7982786.html
We recall German Chancellor Angela Merkel leaning on Mr Zuckerberg to censor anti-immigration Facebook posts. Facebook is now blocking comments opposing Islamic immigration into Europe (and banning accounts) under the guise of suppressing “hate speech”. And they aren’t alone.
This nascent conniving cabal desperately needs exposure to lethal amounts of sunlight. One hopes that Mr Carson’s salvo is but the beginning…
I get the same impression listening to Ben Carson as I do reading your posts. Nicely articulated.

“More than anything, the prize is intended as an encouragement to the Tunisian people…”.
Perhaps the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to President Obama was meant as a similar encouragement. That worked out well, didn’t it… I read recently that the chairman of the committee now regrets the selection of Mr Obama for the award.
I don’t wish to knock the Tunisian people – in fact, I wish them all the best – but the Peace Prize has been allowed to become rather valueless due to the political stance of the awarding committee…
It’s what progressives do.... corrupt and turn everything to poop.
The new Tunisian Constitution requires that the President of Tunisia’s religion “shall be Islam”. And this farce of a Noble Prize Committee approves. Just imagine the reaction of these same Eurodonks if a Western Country amended their Constitution to state that a president of the country “shall be Christian”.
The entire "Noble Prize" concept has become a bad joke and is meaningless.
I think I saw one of those awards in a recent garage sale. I looked it over, they wanted a buck for it, I passed.......
It's another empty gesture by liberals who encouraged the rise of ISIS.

It’s true, Witchy – sort of…
I had a look at this some time ago, and it’s undoubtedly an intriguing idea. However, the more one looks into it, the less promising it appears. They have set a date of 2027 for the manned landing after a number of exploratory and preparatory “Mars shots”.
I am, for one, very, very sceptical. But who knows?
Here’s their website. Consider it carefully before giving them any money…
Give me a man of no vice, you give me a man of no virtue. ABE LINCOLN. But if I knew what brand of whiskey he drinks I'd buy that for all the rest of my generals. Abe Lincoln answering the press about Grant. If they'd only bring victory to our union.
His 'relationship' with Ms. Lewinsky may not have been a crime, but it shows his lack of integrity. A one time thing I might consider a slip, but it continued and then he lied about it. No integrity. A man who will screw around on his wife, the woman who shares his bed and bears his children will also screw you.
What kills me are the amount of people in the public eye/service, that aspire to a higher position knowing that their lives and actions will be scrutinized even more as they rise. In this day and age, honesty and integrity in public servants seems fleeting at best.

I’ve just had the strangest thought…
If one looks at the picture of the whole planet on the right hand side of the second graphic; doesn’t the white area look exactly like the silhouette of Mickey Mouse’s close canine companion, Pluto?
Cue creepy “Twilight Zone” theme… :)

Jesus, Monk, don’t you think your comments – particularly the “edit” comment – are getting a little bit savage?
I don’t always agree with Mr Beck myself. In fact, I think all of us have disagreed with him over one point or another at sometime in the past – just as we disagree with the editors and each another occasionally.
It’s clear that Mr Trump and Mr Beck have little time for each other, but was that attack necessary?
Glenn Beck created this forum from which, I dare say, we all have benefitted insofar as it has encouraged us to dig into subjects to discover the truth – to the extent that it’s now become a habit for most of us. And we get to test our conclusions out in front of the ever-unforgiving trolls.
People can be wrong – I know I have been – but that surely doesn’t call for such personal vitriol, does it?
Take a deep breath, my friend, and count to ten. Then hit “post”…
Yeah, I’m glad the media is digging into Trump, I just wish they’d spend as much time digging into everybody else, like Hillary and Bernie. I’m pretty sure we know all the junk there is to know about Trump. We also know where he stands on most every issue, because he’s a very blatantly obvious person who doesn’t sugar-coat things or skirt around issues.
We know all there is to know about Trump. Now it’s time to move on and figure out what is wrong with everybody else who is running. And I'm thankful. If Trump becomes president, then at least we all know what we're getting into this time. The problem with Obama was that nobody actually looked into his past, so nobody had a clue what he was all about. We know what Trump is all about, so I'm not all that worried about him.

He IS speaking the truth, Apple, but not the whole truth.
The whole truth includes the “Strong Cities Network”.
While it’s true that the various alphabet agencies have become ever-increasingly involved in general law enforcement, and even a non-government agency which is the Federal Reserve “police”, the real threat is the agreement last week that partners the UN with cities around the world to “combat violent extremism”.
This agreement was reached with the UN by the Obama administration and announced by Attorney General Loretta Lynch last week.
The misdirection is the it’s a global initiative but make no mistake; this is the first careful step towards establishing a UN-controlled police force in your nation – and others if they can get away with it. They are waiting to see what the reaction of the American population will be. If the reaction is muted, or if it goes unnoticed, you may be sure that increased powers will gradually be conferred on a foreign-controlled police force operating at the local government level.
