No doubt about it! California is a quirky state. Always has been. In my opinion, out of all the states in the Union, California still has the the most wide ranging beauty and diversity of nature than any other state. Don’t forget though…. California still produced the most popular president in the 20th century, Ronald Reagan. It is also still a fairly conservative state as well. Although the Democrats have sealed their power through dirty tricks, cheating and fraud, not to mention that they worked very hard to solidify their base through illegal immigration they haven’t been able to totally thwart conservative efforts. We are still strong, but until we learn to fight fire, beat back the unions and their lack of decency and absolute void of character and Godlessness, it will continue down the spiral of shame and destruction. For what it’s worth…
I don't think California can take credit for producing Ronald Reagan, at least not all the credit. I think he was from some small town in Illinois, and I know my grandfather worked with him in radio back in the ... 30's probably, and that would have been in Iowa or Nebraska.

Well, now I know that the RNC is in bed with the left/centrist… I wasn’t ready to personally indorse Newt. But, what the heck, Newt’s my man. I am so sick and tired of the Republican establishment and their attack on the Reagan legacy that it is now the party to me that Reagan left many years prior to his election, the Dems. Basically, the GOP and RNC is now the party of the rich and bankers, edging out the common man like myself. Fine. You elect Romney, a socialistic, left/centrist fine. I will leave the party my family has supported for over 150 years. Goodbye Beck, Foxnews, Drudge and the rest of you cowards!!!
I agree. This paves the way for a third party with real people and no BS. Both parties are dead.

I know some of you might say, “what a heartless bastard”, but, I don’t think for a second that this lady, excuse me,,, mother would have it any other way. Yes, it’s sad. No doubt. However, if she was alive today, would you think she would change her mind in a similar story? Not even no, but heck no! Good for her, may she rest in peace. It is what it is. Best to walk away and appreciate what she tried to accomplish…

Yes, Glenn is right on with this. Folks, we better wake up! Not against Muslims perse, but the crap and the nonsense that the highly uneducated Muslims bring to the west. We are playing right into their hands. Why we citizens aren’t taking out these Imams living amongst us, is beyond me. They need to be booted out,,, quicker the better, and their followers will follow back to the stink holes they came from!
Also, I find it extremely difficult to forgive “The Blaze” for their hatchet job that they perpetuated against Newt. I’m not only totally disgusted with this website and their their assistance on destroying Newt’s character, they forget,,, all too easily, they are supporting a candidate who is not far from Obama himself (Sorry Glenn, you know I’m right). But, like the Republican establishment that hated Reagan back in the 80′s, they fear that Newt will lose it all. Yes, I know, there are many on the right with impeccable credentials who came against Newt in Florida,,, but, those of us that know him,,, he’s nothing near what they are saying,,, and it’s absolutely disgusting.. Not only they disregarded Reagan’s 11th commandment,,, but they spit on it. I’m done with Fox, Drudge, and Blaze because of it. Please, don’t believe what they tell you… they are nothing more than a bunch of frightened Republican idiots, who feel the Reagan Revolution was nothing more than a flash in the pan… for what it’s worth…

Eh, trust me, this does happen from time to time. But, it’s obvious that maybe BB, or any sport requiring concentration is not this kids best pursuit. Geez, I’d hate to be him in the locker room after the game.. geez, poor kid.
Uh, “RANGERP”, if you are indeed a man who served our country faithfully, and trusted “tradition” in the military, I really feel for you bro, I thank you too for your service. But, it’s all too obvious that with the inbreeding and bloodletting thanks to Clinton,,, then the softness of Bush’s faux Conservatism,,, now Obama? Trust me,, there are many of us civilians who are very disgusted by the events going on in the military,, from allowing homosexuals to serve openly (or to serve at all for that matter) to allowing an atheist group to put on a concert on a military base,,, oh, and to advertise the fact. The atheists decided to kick it up a notch with a nice church burning video.. Trust me,, there are many of us civilians that are very much disgusted!!! God save us!

Hmmm, please folks, I am hard pressed to find any comments, ok a couple relating to the story at hand, and even those are questionable. Please leave the current GOP, “why tigers eat their young” crap comments on a story actually relating to a story regarding it? This story is important on many levels. I would prefer to see comments that would make us “conservatives”, or in a lesser meaning of the term appear a little more intelligent than you are? Please? Now, my comments actually relating to the story…. It’s obvious that Wisconsin is in a bare knuckles fight (at least on the side of the socialist/communist) to be the end all and be all of the future of the state of Wisconsin. We need to pay attention here folks!!! We are going to be seeing much more of this in the future. Unless we stick together to fight those mental,,, eh, crap, I can’t really think of a non-derogatory term for the left there,,,, crap! Anyway, we really need to pay close attention on what’s going on there. Because,,, if they succeed, it soon may come to your state. This so called instructor, is obviously an idealist. He doesn’t care or think we as conservatives have a right to be pro civil rights, even though most of this Democratic buddies back in the 50′s and 60′s fought tooth and nail against civil rights in many ways, and still do. This so called teacher,,, should have been fired on the spot!!! Now,,, anybody else wish to comment on the actual story???
January 26, 2012 at 3:08am
Blaze, and the rest of your so called Conservative cohorts…… I find it very puzzling that throughout Newts’ career I have always seen him as a true blue Conservative who supported Reagan 101%. I find it even more troubling that the “Right” has always backed Newt and all these allegations, etc. only just now come to the surface? If’s funny, and yes, I have a memory like a steel trap, I never heard all these new allegations regarding him until now! I can only equate this new found revelations about Newt a little suspicious, you agree? Ann Coulter! Please, take a chill pill and think about it. Why is it only now that we are hearing all these ugly things about Newt. You know what? I can only parallel this to why tigers eat their young! I’m not saying that I don’t believe all these accusations, I am only trying to figure it all out. Especially when Pilosi comes out and says, “I know Newt will never be president” Just like a woman, it’s like a matter of fact thing… Hello, do you jerks know something I don’t know? Back in the early 90′s, in my opinion Newt was the only one that was willing to put his reputation and career on the line for Reagan’s legacy,,,, now we have all this garbage? I hated and despised both Bush Sr. and Jr.. They, to me, would be the more applicable to those comments against Bush…. sorry, it just doesn’t make sense!!! I’m not saying I’m going to vote for Newt, but your vitriol against him does bolster his credibility in my book!
January 25, 2012 at 5:04am
Funny, now that I really think about it. I do remember very clearly having the feeling of deep resentment with the Republican Party at the time. I have been at odds with the Party for a very long time, actually, since! I can actually remember talking to fellow Conservatives at the time regarding Bush Sr. and how bitter we felt against them for them so anxious to move from a proven, trusted, and time tested Conservative principles that Reagan laid down. It’s kind of funny. Really, it seemed like the GOP couldn’t get Reagan behind them fast enough. Hmmm, well… if you happen to be a true blue Reaganite like I am, in your late 40′s – 50′s, and a true believer like I am, you know exactly what I am talking about. Oh, don’t get me wrong. Reagan did some things that really got my ire up at the time, such as dealing with the illegal alien problem at the time, giving full amnesty, probably at the demand of the GOP. But, other than that? Reagan always seemed to be spot on,,,,, tee hee,, like remember the Iranians releasing the hostages the day Reagan was sworn in! Ha, ha, ha,,, oh my goodness, I’d be willing to bet that Pelosi is more concerned that Newt is going to put Iran in their place like Reagan did, and have to deal with him for the rest of her political career…. Tee hee,, one can only imagine.. Could you see Mitt doing that? I think not….
January 25, 2012 at 4:29am
Folks, please don’t read too much into this stuff. I admit, I don’t care for Mitt. But, in some ways he may appear to be the most electable. However, at this point,, unless Santorum happens to pull a rabbit out of his hat at this point, I don’t think we are going to get a true Conservative this time around. However, I do know this. Newt seems to get the ire of the Dems the most. Be honest with ya, I think if nothing else, Newt will certainly ruffle their feathers. Personally, they have always been scared of him. Ok, ok, I know, he did have his moments with Clinton but in the long run. I’d bet my life savings that if you mentioned the name Reagan or Newt in a group of liberals. You would get the same reaction. Newt does have the fire in the belly like Reagan did. Best of all? Pelosi has already started to fall apart with even thinking about Newt in the White House. I’m telling ya folks! I admit, there are some ugly things about Newt, but I do think he is our best choice in the long run. Also, I’m not happy at all with the Republican leadership which is owned and controlled by the so called “country clubbers”. They hate him just like they hated and couldn’t wait to get rid of Reagan. Bush Sr., in my opinion was one of those moderates a true Conservative couldn’t like or trust. Heck, it’s no secret they preferred him over Reagan in the primaries at the time. After Bush Sr. finally got in, on the coat tails of Reagan, the rest is history.. Heck with the GOP establishme

January 24, 2012 at 5:18pm
I don’t think I have ever agreed with Rush this much, ever! I do like, and prefer Mitt over Newt in some ways. But, I find it very odd on how much tension Newt is creating with the GOP establishment. I also find it very odd that when it comes down to it, Newt, hands down has a much more Conservative history than Mitt, yet, Newt is being painted as a liberal!?!?? No doubt, yes, I do have some major issues regarding Newt, but in the long run, think about it,,,, ask yourself. Mitt is a Republican from Massachusetts. MASSACHUSETTS! A true Conservative can’t get elected in Mass.. Not to mention his major contribution for socialized health care there. I know, there are other things of course that come into play here. But, personally? I am sick and tired of the Repbublican establishment forcing their “moderate” candidates on us. They hated Reagan. They were the ones responsible for pushing Bush Sr., a moderate on us back in 79′. Reagan has never been their man, they were saying the same kind of crap back in 79′ when they backed Bush. No way Reagan can get elected… oh yeah? Two landslide elections? The second election, Reagan won every state in the union except one… and that was Mondale’s home state. We have not seen an election like that since. I’m not saying Newt is the next Reagan, but he certainly has his fire, spirit and guts! And, I say heck yeah! Newt can win this, no doubt!!! I have no doubt in my mind, Newt is the one the Dems are the most afraid. For what it’s
January 23, 2012 at 1:00am
I have been a huge fan of Newt since the early 80′s. Seriously folks, he is the closest to a next Reagan as we are going to get from the GOP. To some of us “old timers” of the party… well, i’m not that much of an “old timer” but still proud enough to be old enough to vote for Reagan at least once. Newt back then, had fire in his belly. He was one of Reagan’s best defenders. He’s very smart, very well spoken and,,, he pisses off the current GOP, yes, the same GOP who forced on us such “middle of the road” Republicans as Bush Sr., Dole, Bush Jr., and McCain. The party’s anointed ones. Truth is, the GOP has been run by the so called “Country Club Republicans” or more know as “neutrals”. They are more Libertarian than they are Conservative. Personally, while yes, I do have “issues” with Gingrich, he sure has fire in his gut. Yes, I trust him, and only just tickles me to death to see him drive the GOP elite nuts! Keep it up Newt! Rock on!
January 20, 2012 at 5:19pm
Funny, one big question I have is are illegal aliens considered in the numbers for the size of districts? That’s the one thing I find odd. Illegals by law can’t vote, so, why are they being considered. California has done that, hence the reason for the radical swing to the left in the last 10 years. I have a bad feeling Arnold was our last Republican governor…
January 17, 2012 at 6:28am
Ok folks, now I know this subject is driving me nuts! I honestly don’t know if God was talking to me or what, but, after I sent that last message it dawned on me. Wait a second. We are tolerant because we are secure with the relationship with our God. We know he exsist. And if really, truly believe that, then shouldn’t we feel sorrow and pity for her? And, lets not be hypocrites. If we truly believe in God, shouldn’t we believe he will not only take care of our enemies but those who mocked and scorned our brothers and sisters? Now, I do believe we need to be tolerant. Yes, I know it really sucks sometimes. And yes, societies should put limits on speech that can greatly offend their people. But, to just come out and mock and scorn for their own personal satisfaction… yes, there is a line. The way the Polish court dealt with this situation is,,,, eh, ok, but I do think they should have gone further. All things considered? Heck, that is really much American what the Polish court does. Oh, by the way. If the world were to end tomorrow? Who do you think would be our most true and trusted friend out there… No doubt in my mind. Poland. May God continue to bless that country. You will never find a country on the face of this earth that is a more true and trusted friend as Poland. No doubt in my mind. And that “singer” should feel very grateful too, otherwise, she would probably be swinging from a rope right now!!!
What you say about Poland is true.
Poland is one of the very few REAL friends of America in a world with many nations that hate us Americans and where half of our so called allies stab us in the back when we're not looking.
Its no accident that Polish Americans like Generals Casimir Pulaski and Thadeus Kosciuszko helped America tremendously in acquiring its independence in 1776
Kosciuszko was also one of the key engineers and founders of West Point.
In addition key international figures, like the Polish Pope, were pro-American.
Even in WWII, Poles were on the side of America and our allies. Polish pilots helped tremendously in destroying the Nazi German airforce in the Battle of Britain. Polish Squadron 303 had the highest kill rate against the Nazis, of all the squadrons.
And how does Poland get repaid by America for all of this staunch loyalty to America?
Left-wing idiot American Networks like NBC-TV introduce NAZI PROPAGANDA anti-Polish jokes to the American people in the 1960's to condition them to have the same anti-Polish prejudice that these Hollywood/TV media anti-Polish Bigots have.
This is a continuation of Hollywood's war with Poland that started early in the last century.
January 17, 2012 at 6:13am
Actually something did occur to me. Wait a second. We show more respect for Islam than our own, faiths. Especially when Islam is a false religion. Those people worship the devil for goodness sakes. What the heck is the matter with us???
January 17, 2012 at 5:42am
Personally, hey, lets not kid’ ourselves. I am very much in agreement with the Polish court. However, here in the US. I would have a problem with the penalty, or any penalty. Its really odd to me actually. Of course, any reasonable person would be. That kind of activity happens in our country on a daily basis. And let us again not to lie to ourselves. Actually, it’s sad I have to bring this up, but, although I am very much for expression of ones views in a public forum, and I I truly am a “Constitutionalist”, it’s cases like these that really make me think… and, for a small mind like mine, it’s pretty stressful, I gotta tell you. This case kind of reminds me. That while we do have a right to our own opinions, and to be able to share those opinions with other people of like minds. I’m just a little sketchy on where you draw the line. And, it’s that that concerns me the most. I still have absolutely no question
January 17, 2012 at 3:58am
Very cute. Some director with too much money in his pocket buys his way into the ISS. Ok, good for him. Seeing the clip. It’s obviously not a serious movie. It was made for his own, and personal friends’ entertainment. Any suggestion that NASA is withholding it,, is obviously a joke, on us. But still, I thought it was cute. Obviously,,, his mother was the “alien”,,, which was not only funny, but nice. I respect a man that honors his mother.
What? No pointy ears!? It can't be the final frontier without pointy ears.
January 8, 2012 at 10:33pm
Funny, when I read the title of the article, and working into the first paragraph, I had what most of us readers thought. “Obama the Hypocrite, Entertains His Guests with the Whores of Hollywood” would have been a much more better title, or lead in to this story. Of course, I still feel that sense in me, but…… then, after I read the whole story, and taking into the effect of when this took place, I had to think a little less critical of the situation. Ok, we all know Johnny Depp who is one of my most favorite actors. Not because of his characters or movies he has done, but because, and a majority have to agree now. He is one damn good actor. He’s definitely in the top 10% of greatest actors of all time in my book,,, of course, never minding his politics, he does a damn good job at what he does, despite his idiotic positions on all thing politic. Anyway, my point is. Now, I’m putting myself in Obama’s shoes here. If I were president, wouldn’t I try to do the same thing for my kids and friends? Uh, not only yes, but heck yes! Ok, c’mon now. Now I do understand that while a great deal of us are principled, but, if Depp were a conservative Republican, maybe you would? No, can’t be critical on Obummer on this one. There’s much, much, much worse offenses than this one to worry about. This one I give the pres a pass. I have to otherwise I have to point my finger back at myself if I felt otherwise. For what it’s worth….
January 5, 2012 at 8:46pm
Are you kidding me??? This dude is “right on” with me. As I read this story my head was swimming with thoughts. I live in a very affluent area of SoCal. And I shudder to think about all the food that is probably thrown out that’s not even spoiled (thinking about my wife, and her tenancies to toss out perfectly good food even though it’s a day or two past expiration, geez, frustrates the heck out of me.). Really folks, would it be safe to say that millions of tons of perfectly good food is buried in our waste dumps every year? Think about it. Now, with my assumption, which you know could be spot on, translate that into “$”, well, it’s anybodies guess, but you know it’s got to be well into the billions($). In this coming year, we all know we are heading into some very difficult times, at least for most of us. We should all be thinking about waste. Maybe we should think of it this way….. Perhaps, when we go to our markets, think about the 100′s of millions, if not billions of people that go hungry every year around the world. Do you think it would be safe to assume that there are many parents out there in third world conditions that would happily sacrifice their lives to know that their children would be fed and cared, for the rest of their lives? My bet would be probably more than we could think.
January 3, 2012 at 12:36am
I find this article somewhat strange. Look, when it’s “the guys” and I are hanging out, sipping beer and tossing darts, making jokes, etc., yes, politics do come up from time to time. Although we are pretty much conservative in our principles, we often disagree. Actually, I think a few of us are libertarian. But, that’s ok. On Bachmann, funny thing, only one of us spoke somewhat ill of her when her name came up, but it wasn’t anything significant. It’s pretty safe to say that out of all of us, only one is single, the rest of us are pretty much henpecked by our wives, hense why we have such a tight group. However, Bachmann does appeal to all of us guys. Of course, we are all split on who we rather see in the White House, and none of us is big on her. But, we all agree, she has the potential of being a great president. But, unlike the Brits, we don’t think we are quite ready to have a woman in there just yet, at least with the current choices we have. No doubt, she sure as heck is respected amongst us, just don’t think she’s electable. For what it’s worth…
December 30, 2011 at 10:25pm
I have to say, I have been watching and following Newt since the late 1980′s. I really liked him. I kind of saw him as the next Reagan in the future back then. He really seemed well principled, stuck to those principles and was very well spoken. I knew he had a good future in politics and would have followed him to the ends of the earth. Then came Clinton, well, while still being a huge Newt fan, I knew that his (along with other good Republicans) “Contract with America” was an ingenious idea. The country rallied behind him, and the “contract” and one control of the Senate for the first time in over 40 some odd years, which brought Clinton’s legacy to a screeching halt. Not entirely, but it did help in keeping Clinton from ushering in more socialism. The sad thing is, while the “Contract” was touted by the Republicans as being a huge success, it really wasn’t. Yes, the Republicans did live up to most of the “Contract”, some of the more important things were quietly swept under the rug… funny, it seems that nobody noticed. What really turned me off on Newt, was that after the so called “Contract”, Newt, who was being constantly bombarded with negative press, started to try and play the middle road. I will never forget it. I remember watching a news piece on TV where he was touted as being friendly with Clinton, public enemy number one at the time. After that, it seemed that not only he had issues of his own, but, he seemed to be only looking out for himself… s
