If you want to criticize my history knowledge, don’t prove yourself ignorant while doing it. By the Constitution, minorities already had the same rights. It was government that took those rights away from them in the first place. It was government that stripped rights again under the guise of providing rights. Read the Constitution. Civil Rights laws are illegal. They promote, based on race or gender, one set of persons over others – just like the laws they supposedly replaced.
hat discrimination changed from aiding the majority to aiding minorities doesn’t change that fact that it is still discrimination.

I don’t care about these phony “civil rights.” I care about our natural, inalienable, God-endowed rights. Civil Rights cannot be ensure for one without limiting the natural rights of another.
There would be much less strife if folks who were not forced to associate by law.

I am not guilty of sins committed by others because I share a similar skin tone to them. Suggesting otherwise is racist. I do not apologize for the hardships of others just as I do not demand apologies from those who had no hand in mine.
My skin tone did not give me a free pass. I work for what I have. I understand that skin tone has been a barrier to many people of all shades depending on where you were at that given moment, but those difficulties are not owned by people of any shade. Every single ethnicity, regardless of color of skin, has faced discrimination, loss of rights, slavery, and every nature of abuse in the past. Waiting for an apology for wrongs of generations past is the quickest way to ensure you will never find the justice or equality you seek.

Great work. These two officers and the follow-up confrontation sound like they should be text-book how-to examples. NYC is lucky to have them.

Both sides of this issue have legitimate beefs. One side ignores the other, the other side over-reacts. Neither acknowledge the legitimate issues of the other.
The result? Very dangerous, very evil people use it as cover to do very bad things. Of those evils, the least of the worries are the people being killed. And know I do not take anyone’s death lightly – I am on the record here repeatedly saying that every single human life is of tremendous value.
What I am saying here is that this trouble is a very important step to stripping us of our liberties entirely. Any politician that supports BLM, any politician that supports additional laws to protect police – the two are peas in the same pod. Their end game is the end of our liberty.
Chaos and Anarchy before the 3rd war, the said they could NWO in 3, we have had 2…… If you don’t know that I pity your lack of knowledge and intelligence.
War didn’t wait for us …as Churchill would say.
“One side ignores the other, the other side over-reacts. Neither acknowledge the legitimate issues of the other. The result?”
And we all end up under the thumb of a police state. This is why I’ve repeatedly called the typical poster here an imbecile, useful idiot of the left. amazingly enough, the useful idiots STILL haven't figured that out.
very, very good points. question- I agree with beck that last night trump promised to bring about a very stern and inflexible view of law and order (think about ramifications). beck points this out, I point this out, you would think we went into a movie theater and yelled fire. and hillary is even worse. johnson drinks out of the same trough as bernie so third party is out. I'm out of short term solutions for my family and me. all because anger (trump) won against common sense (Cruz).
Its not just liberty at risk, but also civil right. These videos are not just used to invoke black racism, but to also drag whites back into racism. The hate whites have long left is crawling back, through the use of propagandized truth to instill hate, and hate is a very powerful emotion.
I think neither group actually cares about serious reform of police institutions and just wants to dehumanize the other.
I think establishment democrats are partially at fault for the rise of the radical parts of the BLM movement- if they were actually serious about promoting justice reform and egalitarianism and didn’t just say they were when it was politically expedient, it may not have spiraled into such mistrust and hostility that some people think killing individual cops is worthwhile or productive. They don’t have leadership to put the brakes on and keep criticism of police from devolving into anarchy, and so they put themselves at the mercy of the media and public opinion.
Republicans, on the other hand, don’t seem to have any interest in the structural issues or the aspects of our culture that lead to incidents of police brutality and other policing policies that disproportionately harm the lower class and racial minorities. It seems a bit ironic to me- they decry the NSA’s power over data collection and the TSA’s intrusiveness and inefficiency, but don’t often levy similar criticisms toward police unions, even though all exist for the purpose of public safety. I think we tend to humanize police a bit more- and so chalk up their issues as a few bad apples spoiling the bunch.

Yeah. Great speech. If you like rabid nationalism and indomitable centralized governments. He’s proposing the same governing style we’ve been criticizing the other side for, only wrapped up in language we like.
All I want from the central government is “liberty and justice for all.” Everything else comes with a price tag way too high to pay with results no where near what was promised.

That’s the problem with kids today. They expect honesty when it suits them. So they know honesty, but what about integrity? Integrity is greater than honesty.
What’s the difference? Cruz is displaying integrity. Trump has neither.

Who would remember Gary Johnson? What is there about him that’s memorable? He’s just another prog infiltrator in another party that seriously dropped the ball this year. The Libertarians could have made huge inroads with conservatives in this cycle, but they nominated Gary Johnson with his stances against the rights to live and freely associate, instead.
He’s barely better than the other two and not worth crossing over to a party we still only half agree with.
 July 22, 2016 at 12:16am
So true, CarMom. But we are not above protecting this precious gift God has given us – a government by the people and for the people with liberty and justice for all.
 July 22, 2016 at 12:15am
Great, then get your trumpy buddies to stop begging me to support their lord and master.
July 22, 2016 at 12:11am
To Michael Moore? Lol. You caught me. I do not pay any attention to him. What am I missing?
 July 22, 2016 at 12:08am
I am bound by my God, my principles, my morals, and my loyalties. If I make a mistake, I must do the right thing to correct it, not plow blindly on to perdition because of a promise I made in ignorance. You can not fix stupid with more stupid.
 July 21, 2016 at 3:12pm
So if you choose politics, you should just expect lies about your loved ones and feel no need to defend their honor. Got it. The world you paint is not really anything to be proud of, though. I expect better of those who would lead us.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:32pm
As if any list they release would have the full, honest-to-God truth in it, anyways.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:25pm
So you are saying no level of slander against you and your family would cause you to renege on such an agreement? That’s up to you, but it makes me glad we are not related.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:22pm
All that’s saying is that we should believe anything a politician says. While that’s a popular sentiment, if it’s true, we are doomed no matter what we do. I believe words have meaning and consequence. If Trump said about my dad what he said about Cruz’s, he wouldn’t get my endorsement, either. It’s not classy to toss your morals and your family under the bus to make good on some statement you made before all that took place.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:19pm
To be perfectly honest, I believe the outcome of the election has already been decided.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:07pm
So it’s OK to renege on a promise now, Whip? You seemed pretty critical of Cruz for his speech.
 July 21, 2016 at 2:02pm
I’m proud to be a RINO, now. I stand for nothing this party now stands for through their actions. They still talk a good game, but that’s all it is.
[-2] July 21, 2016 at 2:00pm
And what’s worse? The (R) after Trump’s name will ensure someone even worse than Hildy will follow him in.
