So true. The White House will write the narrative. The media will repeat it verbatim. Public opinion will be shaped on it, unless….. unless there is an effective leader on the right to shape the counter narrative. Ted Cruz is that man. When John Boehner goes on Jay Leno and proclaims the republicans shut down the government, you know you need a leadership change asap.

Rush is too moderate, just like the republican party. He refuses to name names. He won’t call out the particular pundits, journalists and consultants that have taken the party down. Ben Shapiro over at Breitbart has stated that we conservatives need to end the civility if we want to compete. We have to realize that the democrats play by their own set of rules and we can no longer be gentlemen in the political arena, It’s against our nature but it’s now a matter of survival. Just ask the NRA. They will be demonized but will stick it right back in Obama’s face… and gain public support in the process.
Rush has owned the noon to three EST slot in radio for the last 20 years. Plenty of pretenders have tried to take the throne. O Reilly, Huckaphoney, now Geraldo. Can’t stomach any of them. Thanks to Piers Morgan I discovered Alex Jones. That’s firebrand conservative radio. Names names. Takes no prisoners. I don’t even listen to my Rush 24/7 subscription anymore. I’m tired of Rush wringing his hands.

I didn’t need to see Trump’s birth certificate to know he wasn’t the son of an orangutan. Orangutans have better hair.

This is exactly why you NEVER agree to give up your guns. If you think the police are going to take care of you, you are sadly mistaken – which is the definition of a liberal – sadly mistaken. The woman was not a bad shot. She nailed the perp several times in the chest and abdomen. How did the MF’r live? A 38 apparently is not enough to get the job done. Hollow points may have done it. Certainly, one shot from an AR15 would GIT R DONE !

Well said. We should not be in fear of our government. They should be in fear of us peasants. You wouldn’t think banning our guns could pass constitutional muster. However, when you consider how John Roberts ruled on Obamacare, deferring to the will of lawmakers, I think we should all be concerned about potential gun legislation. We have to stop it in congress so we can’t be betrayed again in the Supreme Court.

Ben Swann – Great American. He should have a national show. He just provided a rational, reasonable and objective view from middle America. The only statistic Swann could have added was the number of gang related homicides. When gangsters kill each other, society wins.
If you take out DC, NY and CA – most of the country is aligned with Ben Swann. Did you ever think the big networks were lying to you to put forth their agenda? Ben Swann just proved what Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbuagh have been saying for years.
The constitution was set up so as to have a watch dog press to keep the government honest. Today, we have a lap dog press which serves as the communications wing of the democrat party. The republicans are unbelievably ineffective at beating the lap dogs. Fortunately, the NRA doesn’t suffer from the same problem. La Pierre is awesome.
Showing public contempt for the press is one of the easiest ways to garner public favor. When Newt attacked the moderators in the recent debates, the crowd went wild. The republicans ought to try it.

63% of Americans support U.S. intervention? The American people can be manipulated so easily by the media that it’s funny. The dumb asses don’t know anything but what they see on TV and get in their social media. It explains how Obama could get re elected, how George W. Bush continues to get blamed for the economy while Obama bears no responsibilty for the last 4 years of economic disaster. And, how unemployment is going down but food stamps are at an all time high?
Dumb asses unfortunately vote. But only elected dumb asses can send our troops to war. The only muslim country that has appreciated our interevention was Kuwait. While the blood of young Americans is spilled in Afganistan, Iraq, Lybia, we have gained no favor. And that would be the same case in Syria. You want to intervene? Join the French foreign Legion. Leave the U.S. Military to protect vital U.S. national interests.
Real numbers 63%.?
How do we know anymore what's real with the current media in charge of the U.S.?

Should people be allowed to carry concealed weapons? No. They should be REQUIRED to carry concealed weapons to stop crimes like this and others.

This is great PR for all of us who know unions are a joke. Incompetence, intoxication, illegal behavior are all things that will get you fired in the private sector. In the union, you can’t get fired unless you commit capital murder – and even then, the murderer would likely file a grievance to get his job back, WITH BACK PAY ! It really is affirmative action for a protected class. Union members are held to lower standards than the rest of what remains of the U.S. workforce. Stories like this only help the right to work cause. LIVE BETTER… WORK !

If the Republicans can’t wage a public relations campaign in opposition to this, there is no need for a republican party. This should be an easy issue to explain to the country. Who is the head of the replublican party now? Boehner? If so, we’re doomed.
Rand Paul, Marco Rubio… please take the forefront on this. I had high hopes for Paul Ryan but he seems too willing to tow Boehner’s party line, which is a proven loser.
Rubio? That is hilarious. He hasn't been told what he believes yet.

Love the forceful Christian response… Hey Digital Satan… What is it about The Baby Jesus that scares you people? What’s the threat? Merry Christmas !

Not in Oklahoma, buddy. This is one of the few remaining states where common sense still exists.

Don’t you think the physical reactions from eating the brownies should reflect negatively on marijuana? Were the two half baked “bakers” too stoned to realize that they would cause harm to others? Socially liberal attitudes lead to all kinds of societal harm; mental, physical and spiritual.

Heterosexual people don’t refer to themselves as straight. We call ourselves NORMAL. It’s the homosexuals who coined the term straight to refer to us NORMAL people. Thus, I suspect the three of you are homosexuals trying to manipulate the debate as you have with your entire public relations effort to gain mainstream acceptance for your unhealthy lifestyle. I’m seeing a lot of leftist participation on conversative sites. It’s pretty easy to spot.
Just looking at DeGeneris and other manly types like Rachel Mancow is enough to turn my stomach. So, as JC Penny is free to use who they want to advertise their products, I will exercise my freedom to shop elsewhere. To your disdain, the conservative cause is alive and well.
