IT IS NOT IRRELEVANT. The actions of the Americans that composed the National Command Authority September 11th 2012 helped jihad groups immeasurably. This was followed by the withdrawal from Yemen, the announced withdrawal from Afghanistan. Great assistance to worldwide Jihad is given by Americans who fail to publicly state the origins of the problem and it connection to Islam.

I like George Will a lot, but in this instance I vehemently disagree with him. If I recall correctly, he was also opposed to the candidate Ronald Reagan back in the day.

Hillary Clinton says that Trump’s comments “make us less safe.” Really? So in other words if we dare offend the muslims in anyway, we can anticipate that they will get more angry and take even more dangerous actions against us? Doesn’t this just substantiate Trump and his cautious approach? Go Trump!

You’ll never see a Democrat Presidential debate on Fox news. It’s time the Republican Party wised-up and becomes more choosey about the circumstances of their debates.

For years I set my DVR to regularly record “The Five”. Then they added Geraldo Rivera to the mix which lead me to cancel my record setting. I haven’t seen the show since. Seeing this article makes me glad I no longer watch the program.

I meant billiard ball (if it makes any difference).

I appreciate learning this fact. I admit, it surprised me. However, it shouldn’t have. I have long known that the earth surface is literally smoother than a bowling ball.

I always vote Republican. I like Trump, Carson, Fiorina, Cruz, Rubio and Jindal. I wouldn’t vote for Bush under any circumstances.

For 5 years I served as a minister of a congregation of about 500–I voluntarily left, but still believe in God. Occasionally I would have men come into me confessing an addiction to pornography. (I never had a woman do so, but I did have a few women confess to adultery. They were usually lonely or felt neglected and wanted to feel loved and immediately regretted what they had done.) Anyway, regarding the men, I would either try to work with them or line them up with professional help if they so desired. I eventually became convinced that men who claimed addition to pornography were no different than any other man. I became convinced that all men desire and enjoy the visual stimulation of pornography. The only difference is some fear God enough and/or love their wives enough that they leave it alone. I know that I am going to get a lot of criticism for what I am going to say next, but I think a man saying he is addicted to porn is just a screen to hide behind. All men are by nature, addicted to porn. They just have to decide if they are going to fear God and love their wives.
Hey I can't argue any of that with you. I wonder if he laid this all out on the table after the first incident would that have been the better move? Because right now I really hope he just fades away....
God has said he gives men weaknesses that they will be humble and his grace is sufficient that if they humble themselves and have faith, He will turn the weaknesses into strengths.

Hillary Clinton belongs in the big house (prison), not the white house.
 May 16, 2015 at 1:54am
The Clinton’s should be put in the big house (penitentiary) not the White House. Mrs. Clinton destroys emails that are under subpoena and nothing is done. If any other American citizen tried that, or a republican elected official, they’d never get away with it. Bill should be in prison for at least one count of rape and several counts of attempted rape. Instead he gets $109 million for some speeches, all of which are tied closely to those for whom he and Hillary can do favors.

Hate speech isn’t protected by the constitution? What a massive, horrible, anti-American, anti-constitutional slippery slope that would be. Who would get to decide what is hate speech? The liberals? So would defending the life of the unborn be hate speech? Would defending marriage between a man and a woman be hate speech? Would defending limited government be hate speech? Would defending charter schools be hate speech?
Why does Chris Cuomo even have a position of public responsibility anyway? If this is a CNN anchor, that says a lot about CNN. None of which is good.
Hateful speech deemed offensive by some is the only speech that needs protection - what other kind of speech would?

Blacks want reparations for the past. I agree. They can begin by handing over their money to the families of the hundreds of thousands of Union soldiers who gave up their live in the Civil War.

What kind of person or persons could find any joy or satisfaction in staying in a stolen cabin? Some people need to get a conscious and discover that there is a better, happier way to live.

I sincerely fear that President Obama and his followers actually think this is a sign from above that he is the Man!
 March 4, 2015 at 4:57pm
Hmm…I confess that I did not know where he stood on the 2nd Amendment, so you caused me to research his stand on it. True, he has changed his mind on it over time, but currently he seems strong is supporting it. Therefore, I am still pro-Ben Carson. I am not someone who automatically rules someone out because they sometimes change their mind on a matter. Who in the world doesn’t change their mind sometimes? I am more leery of someone who won’t ever change his mind, then someone who can be reasoned with.

There hasn’t been a word come out of this intelligent, brave man’s mouth that I haven’t agreed with. People say he shouldn’t be considered as a presidential contender because he hasn’t governed. I say he reminds me of the character of many of the founding fathers who also had no prior governing experience but proved to be some of our greatest leaders. Unlike Obama who has absolutely no accomplishments in life beside being a husband and a father and being elected to office by dirty tricks, exploiting his skin color and promising free stuff, Ben Carson is loaded with talent and accomplishments. People should seriously consider him for president.
And by repentance, I mean changing your ways, not continuing in them.
The fact of the matter is that The Lord said it is better for a man that a millstone be cast around his neck and he be cast in to the depths of the sea than that he should offend just one of these little ones. That "pastor" needs to get his wife under subjection and be the leader of his household. If he can't hold his own household he can't hold the household of God. I am a pastor myself and I can tell you that people pay just as much attention to your wife as they do to you. I guarantee you this guy is a pariah in his community if for no other reason other than his wife is a huge stumbling block.

I am glad to live in the USA where freedom to worship as you believe is a guaranteed right. However, Islam should be an exception and not allowed in this country. It is at perfect odds with the Constitution. The Koran says a person has the freedom to become Islamic but not to leave it. The Koran says that those who turn their back on Islam are to be executed.
In my opinion, any and all religions that promote death as a penalty for not remaining true to the faith should not be acknowledged or even allowed in this nation. America is a place of religious liberty but not when the religion itself is an enemy to liberty. This does not mean that I am biased against Islam. This standard to worship freely should be held as a standard for all religions that want to exist in this nation. No religion, Islamic or otherwise, should be allowed in America if it destroys individual freedom as guaranteed by the Constitution.
I like your argument. We can't have it both ways. We can't allow this barbaric religion to overthrow our very Constitution and our human rights in America. Until & unless they change - they are a threat to our very existence.
Freedom of religion was never intended to include islame. It was intended to be able to practice any form of Christianity that you want.
It is NOT a religion!
It cannot be treated as one.
It is a complete system of life that incorporates every societal, political, legal and behavioral aspect of existence as a human, cloaked in religion to force it's acceptance in tolerant societies!!!
23689 that is a succinct description of the crux of the matter! Before 9/11 I would have lumped Islam in with other major world religions. But now, having learned more about the Koran (optional spelling) , I'm at a loss. Jews & Christians are very definite about telling the truth. It's not like we never lie ; but most feel guilty, confess, & repent when we do. So I'm confused. Do Muslims really think it's okay to lie? Are they uniformly homophobes? How can they want to live here if they are fundamentally opposed to our way of life? If they uniformly believe we are infidels? And how can we believe anything they say when we know they've been taught to lie? Aiyiyi.
