    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.

    According to Websters dictionary the definition of marriage is I quote : (1) the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage .
    In the first instance the one most accurate in a dictionary ,we can define the participants as 1: opposite sex , 2: a husband and wife 3: recognized by law
    We can define wife only as a female partner , and husband only as a male partner in marriage .
    In the 2nd definition: the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage .It talks of relationship similar to marriage ,has no recognition by law ,and cannot define its partners, as in the lawful union of contractual marriage.The first definition has been law for more than 100 years , and reinforced by DOMA in the Clinton years , which continues to be law today .The SCOTUS cannot write law , only Congress can , so the SCOTUS does not have the authority to change law , and they have determined that a small portion of DOMA is unconstitutional , that is there job ,and since they cant write or change law, they recommend that it be changed .The law that has been in effect forever is still in effect , until Congress ,acts on that recommendation ,and makes the changes.So at present time all your gay marriages are unlawful and not worth the paper

    I started watching Glenn when he was with FOX , I joined because of his fiery and informed research I didnt have time to do ,while working . I was a big fan of his putting all the ducks in a row and showing their connection . I dont watch his programming a lot anymore , because his entire approach has changed . I may understand why , but its not the programming that got me interested. I will say this , he and his staff has played a huge roll in waking up a nation , that had been asleep for 40 years . If nothing else he got an entire nation to start doing their own research and not just believing what they were being spoon fed , to that I give him huge credit . So I ask you , are you going to like or dislike Trump , just based on what Glenn Beck says , or are you going to do your own research and prove Glenn right or wrong in your opinion . No matter which way you decide to go , I think Glenn has accomplished what he has set out to do from the start .

    Here is my take as a retired New York businessman , not as big as Trump but big enough to know what it takes to stay in business , and make money , in a predominately Progressive Democrat state ; where the majority of the NY population lives. In New York , in order to make money , its all about who you know and what deals you can make to tiptoe around business crushing regulations and taxes . If you are Conservative , you never get into a detailed discussion on politics with your potential connection. You nod your head say what is necessary to sell and keep your new connection , and be conservative when you get home. In Trumps world its all about who you know and politics is in the forefront , so it doesnt surprise me that he has been taped supporting Progressive policies and contributing to both parties. Trump is a master at selling and promoting himself to whomever he needs to deal with , to get a deal done . So here is where I agree with Glenn and the Blaze . Knowing that self promotion and saying what ever is necessary to get the job done is Trumps strong suite , just where does the real Trump stand on the issues. If he is 100% honest in his stand , then I will support him all the way into the White house . So it really come down to can we believe what he is selling . I have not been able to decide yet . I might remind you we overwhelming put Obama in office based on his ability to sell himself . So please excuse Glenn the Blaze and I if we are a little cautious .

    Message to Fox , Geraldo Riveras time has passed , he has outlived his credibility , and his usefulness , its time for him to go .

    There are several beliefs in what the definition Pro Life means , but overall there is a battle between those that dont believe in abortion , and those that support support abortion , as a means of dependent population control , Oh I am sorry , Womens right to chose . The splitting of hairs in the prolife belief comes because Washington is trying to regulate , and finance abortions , as a political control , something they have no business doing . Extreme case abortion is a choice of the mother , her faith , her family and doctor . Her right to chose , should come at the sex act , and with the use of contraceptives , not after she is pregnant . If she gets pregnant there is adoption . I may take heat for this belief but I believe I represent the 21st century Christian .

    I have two comments on an entertaining debate . I was impressed with most of the answers , and not too happy with the direct attacks amongst some of the participants .
    First : I think it was in bad taste of the Fox panel to ask their first question , obviously directed at Trump , on his first political debate , about his support of whom ever was nominated . It was designed to knock him down a peg , for fear he would be uncontrollable . I am not a Trump supporter , but the question was obvious and uncalled for .
    Second : The Fox panelists job in this debate was to ask tough questions , without injecting their personal agenda , Megyn Kellys abortion question was seriously out of line in its asking , not in the subject matter. Ms. Kelly needs to do some serious soul searching , and ask herself if her trip to the top at Fox , isnt making her more and more full of herself and less attractive in her role at Fox.

    I dont see gays having any less rights than Christians , what I do see is gays trying to remove Christian rights , in the name of equality . At what point is it Constitutional , for what gays say are there right , allowed to infringe on the rights of others . Gays have always had equal protection under the law , what is being fought over now is more than equal protection . If you cant see that , then your head is totally up where the sun dont shine .

    At 1.4% of the population , according to the census and CDC numbers averaged, they sure make a lot of demands . It seems to me that being such a small group of the population , and with such a heated subject , they would not want to put this matter to a vote of the people . They may just find out the amount of clout they think they have , realy doesnt exist at all .

    Obama said getting on a plane to Kenya , before the shootings , the inability to move what he called “commonsense gun safety laws” through Congress, “even in the face of repeated mass killings” was “distressing.”
    I am starting to think the unthinkable , it seems every time Obama wants to push gun control we have a mass shooting . We have had more of these type shootings since he became President , then all added together in the history of the country . WHY

  • [2] July 23, 2015 at 10:41am

    Thats not entirely true Travis … Only Congress writes law , that is we the people , and the President signs it into effect . The Supreme Court can only rule on the wording of that law , not the topic in general . So if Congress writes a law that the wording is determined to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court , then all Congress needs to do is change the wording till it passes . The Supreme Court is an appointed lifetime position , and they have lately started creating law , which is a power they dont have under our constitution . It is time they and our Congress have term limits , to prevent this kind of abuse of the intent of our Constitution .
