    Unlike the media , NAACP , and the usual racebaters , I am unable to form an accurate opinion without all the facts . So I will just make an observation … If you look carefully at the second video , the one from the store owner across the street , you have one cop between the victim and the car , and one cop on the outside kneeling on the victims arm . The video is uninterrupted till near the end of the video , at that point the cop on the outside appears to go flying away from the victim , at that point the camera moves away from the three , shots can be heard and the picture returns to the victim laying shot with the outside cop getting up , from being tossed away . The cop between the victim and the car is nowhere to be seen when the camera returns to the scene , which tells be there is time lost during the movement of the camera . The missing cop then returns to the picture from the right , to get there he would have had to walk around the back of the car , or there is time lost in the filming , he then removes something from the victims pocket and the scene ends. So I have questions , why did the camera move away from the scene right before the shooting , and why wasnt the cop on the inside still in the picture when the video returned to the shot victim .

    It will never be possible to reduce the debt till the accounting system used in Washington is replaced with a standard business accounting practice . You can never reduce the debt , when all you debate on the budget every year , is how much more we are going to spend over last year . When businesses see the government replacing the present accounting system and a viable tax plan no matter how small that is going to be adhered to , reducing the debt , the economy will come roaring back .

    So now we have broke down our election process to a series of Progressive left leaning topics with yes / no answers . The world in reality is not either black or white , yes or no , but that is how millennials have been programmed to see the world . The idea “Most political tools out there are made by politically engaged people for politically engaged people ” is true for a reason . The idea that millennials have lost faith in the media due to bias is a valid one , but their panel of researchers will share the same problem , because elections are not just a group of facts and yes or no questions . There are fine points of policy which must be interpreted by each person individually . Here is an example – 85% of our country consider themselves Pro Life but a sizable portion of those feel in extreme rare cases , life threatening danger to the mother , or psychological trauma due to rape etc , with personal consultation between doctor and patient , abortion could be permitted . In these cases are you Pro Choice or Pro life . Does being Pro Life allow all the rare cases , some of them , or none . As is true of most political views there must be some analysis (soul searching ) on the voters part . You cannot answer these questions with a Yes / No app , based on info from a disconnected panel of millennials , who spend more time in front of their cell phone than experiencing the complexities of the real world . This has the potential to be popular , but no good will come from it

    Bill and Hillary ran Arkansas like a mob family , the corruption and illegal crimes did nothing but fill the Clintons pockets . Finally prosecutors put together the “Whitewater ” case and had the Clintons dead to rights , on all the illegal activity of the Clinton governorship . In a last ditch effort Bill used his many political connections and funds to secure his primary spot to be President , as such he could not be indited . After 4 years in office the prosecutors were waiting , and Bill said and did whatever was necessary to get reelected , after which the case was dropped because too much time had passed . Now again we find the Clintons under investigation for corruption , and Hillary maybe indicted for treason , or at least improper handling of Top Secret intel and documents , putting our country at risk . Now again Hillary seeks to escape indictment by seeking the Democrat Primary candidate for President . I believe the Benghgasi committee will find enough facts supporting , under her supervision , selling guns to rebels of any name to overthrow Assad , that resulted in four American deaths , and the FBI will find enough proof and seek to indict Hillary has committed Federal crimes against our country . The problem is prosecution falls to the DOJ and we all know how corrupt that department is , just look at Holders prosecution . So I feel , again Hillary will avoid prosecution , at least through the election process . If not elected we will see

    Have you tried to watch online recently ? I have a paid subscription , but changes in both Firefox and Chrome have prevented the stream from being watched since the summer . I have always been able to watch both online and on Roku for years , now I cannot watch online.

    I think that a debate held on the Blaze TV would be tough and fair for all of the candidates . The biggest problem I see is the accessibility to watch the debate . Despite the large viewership of the Blaze , not everyone has access to the Blaze TV . Out of the 14 million viewers , I believe the number was , for the last debate on MSNBC , how many of those interested viewers have access to the Blaze . If the debate was not accessible to anyone who wants to watch it regardless of location , then it does a disservice to the candidates .

    A message to Glenn ,
    I can remember not so many years ago , A Glenn Beck on Fox . What propelled you to fame and fortune was your anti establishment war on government Progressives , and Obama in particular . You united a nation , you were Trump . The Nation hasnt changed still fighting , you have … You have lost ground , with those followers from the beginning , and the American people are still are looking for that leader from the past.
    I am not a fan of Trump or Carson , I cant commit to the idea that Trump , will follow through with all his speeches if elected , and I think Carson Who I respect tremendously , isnt ready for the government bullpen . I feel he would have a tough time , standing upto the Putins of the world and demanding respect , also in a match up against Hillary , I think she will eat him alive in the debates . So my personal vote will probably be for Rubio or Cruz , both have their down sides , but I think both could win , and its going to take more than one President to straighten out Obamas mess , if its even possible .

    I dont know whats wrong with her laughter , I do the same thing every time somebody tells me she is running for President

    Wow a tough choice of giving up charging for a new revenue stream , or the loss of government funding and their whole operation , not a tough decision . Only a Progressive would think that charging money for the mutilation of fetal embryos , that will continue for free by the way , is the only reason the majority of Americans , wants them closed down .

    I was around in those days of McCarthyism . I did a one request search , you can find more information , if you look .

    Wow , this interview shows just how out of touch our media is with history . In the 60s there a huge push to remove the Communists from our government , country and even Hollywood . People were being tried and going to prison , for being a Communist . It became so toxic to be a Communist that the active Communists changed their name to Progressive , same belief same Manifesto just a different less toxic name . Bernie Sanders formed the Progressive Democrat Caucus , 80 Democrat Communist most still active in our current government . When Obama was running for election the connection between the Communists and the Progressives was becoming more evident to the uninformed public , so Sanders softened his ideology name further to Socialist . Now we have Chuck Todd on prime time , thinking Sanders changing his ideology name back to Progressive was actually a move to the right , when in reality he has been emboldened by his poll numbers not to hide behind this phony socialist title any longer. Communism always sounds good till you live under it , and its always the young people that are most misled . Google the facts , you will see I am correct.

    Like so many other Progresive decisions , the problem with their nielsen ratings must be their name , it couldnt be the crappy programming they continue to broadcast on that network . ABC has taken a highly successful Disney brand founded and for years supplying Family entertainment , and turned it into a collection of shows I forbid my kids to watch . Instead of giving hope and an uplifting view that things can be better , they take their viewers into the depths of the street , where there is no hope , and promote that as common place. Thats why there viewership has completely disappeared , not the Network Name .

    Cant blame Boehner completely , even when Boehner and Congress did pass something , McConnell dropped the ball in the Senate . I might even fault McConnell for failure more than Boehner , he has let Reid outsmart him every time a bill got to the Senate . I vote for McConnells ousting next , and a movement needs to be started while we are on a roll .

    In reply to the contribution Good Riddance to John Boehner

    I can discuss a difference of opinion with you , but I will not accept an attack on my intelligence . Let me ask you this , do you agree that the Constitution is the supreme rule of the land , and the Federal laws in our country are created by the people through our representatives in Congress .Then you agree that state laws are arrived at the same way . Since not all the peoples representatives are versed in Constitutional law , the Supreme Court was created to advise them on the Constitutionality of the laws they are passing . It was meant to be the weakest branch of our government , with its creation in the III Amendment . Soon it was evident that the Supreme Court was abusing its intended authority using Judicial Review , so the 10th Amendment was passed , saying the ultimate decision lies with the people and the states. Think about this for a moment , The Supreme Court is filled and maintained by Presidential appointment , for life , yes they are accepted by Congress , but we all know how corrupt that can be .We know on both sides they were appointed based on their ideologies ,not their knowledge of the Constitution , and their decisions are passed with a simple majority .Through this self given power of judicial review the SCUS has given themselves the last and undisputed word in all matters governing our country , overruling the people and Congress . So does Judicial Review seem Constitutional to you ,or are we a country of laws passed by elected officials

    The definition of marriage as , only between a man and a woman has been law in this country for over 200 years , it was further reinforced by the DOMA law passed in the Clinton era . Recently the Supreme Court has ruled the wording of marriage only between a man and a woman is unconstitutional . However since the supreme court cannot create or change law , just offer their opinion , it is up to Congress to act on that opinion to change the law . Since Congress has not changed Federal Law , the law stands as it was written originally. Also in North Carolina the law is specific in their state constitution that marriage is between a man and a woman . That law stands until the legislature in NC change it . So this county clerk is totally operating within both Federal and State law , at this time , despite the Supreme Courts opinion . Lets not make more out of this than it is , a law in this country is law until it is changed , something this administration has a great deal of difficulty abiding by .

    May be so … But when he is right , he is right !

    Look here is what all this BS boils down to . Not all Muslims are radical , and the peaceful Muslims deserve equal treatment in this country . That right however comes with a price , if they wish to live in the US peacefully they must follow our laws , and be part of the process of weeding out the radicals in this country living among them . Since it is very difficult to tell the radicals from the peaceful , only when the radicals are exposed and removed will they get to live the American dream in peace.

    I am a day trader for 20 years now and invest in cycles . I can tell you the market is totally separate from the Fed , however the market is driven by speculation , perception , and emotion on a world scale , none of which is very stable. The US has monetized our more than $18 Trillion of debt , by selling Treasury Bonds to big money investors , countries and banks , that have purchased them as safe havens for their money , based on the idea that on the world market there is no safer place to put that money . We have spent that money , so those investors are operating on the confidence that if necessary the US could find a way to pay them back if they need it. The US is paying these investors , interest only payments and the Fed has kept interest rates very close to zero for years now , it has also printed over a Trillion dollars in additional money , which makes those investments worth less than they bought them for , and the payments less. Now say the Fed increases the interest rate 1% now our government would need to pay those investors 1% interest on their investment , adding $1.8 Trillion to budget expenses , just to service the debt . If those investors get the idea that the US cant cover that expense , they will panic as the last safe haven for their money is now at risk .They will start selling their investments ,so as not to be the last one paid , and that will cause the Market will crash .Now you can see why stopping spending and raising our GDP is the only answer

    Carly Fiorina is not drop dead gorgeous , but like most of America she is an attractive woman and keeps herself fit . We are not running a beauty pageant . We are looking for someone who can , take on the hard and sometimes unpopular decisions , someone who can stand up to foreign leaders , without fear , and demand respect , and whose agenda is the betterment and financial recovery of our great nation . Something we havent had since Obama has taken office. Ms. Fiorina does seem to have those qualities , I dont know yet whether she will be my candidate of choice but I do know that if the statement was actually made by Trump , then I see him as no better than many of the petty politicians , who cant make a case for their candidacy ,so they resort to personal petty attacks . I will not vote for those candidates either.

    There was and is no law that bans gays marriage , and the law does apply equally to all people . What the law , specifically defines , is that marriage is between a man and a woman . And simply put , the SCOTUS has stated that the statement , that the definition of marriage is only between a man and a woman , is unconstitutional . If Congress changes this law , it will redefine marriage vows for millions of families for 100s of years , that have dedicated their lives to having and raising children and passing on the family name for generations , where their only binding force , through tough times was a term and contract called marriage , between a husband and a wife . I am married 43 years to the same woman , I can speak with some authority on this subject . If homosexuals want to live together thats fine , but I doubt you will ever keep any lasting support for calling that marriage . We are living under a totally lawless President and his administration , enjoy your 15 min. of fame , because when he is gone all these ridiculous equal rights conversations will be over , and you all will move back into the shadows , and the world will again regain its God given sanity.
