    Napolitano: “The federal government should never be in a position in which it is deciding on the extent of its own power”
    Sorry to break this to you judge but… That’s what happens ALL the time!
    The federal govt as a whole does that all the time.
    It also does it on the federal judicial level (Supreme Courty)
    …on the Executive level (via many acts and actions by each and every president – NOT JUST this one)
    …and it does it on the Congressional level as well.

    Really that is just such a foolish, generalized comment by this otherwise knowledgeable judge. (My guess is he is just trying to make this administration look bad by saying such.)
    So what would you have as the alternative judge? That on issues involving the federal govt that… WHO? The states decide who is right/wrong? That somehow ‘the people’ determine the case?
    If there is a case being disputed and it involves the federal govt then just WHO presides over such then judge?

    He also called the story a good example of “media deception.”

    Now that’s funny – coming from a guy who offers nothing but deception. From a guy who NEVER allows himself to be directly challenged – EVER!
    Look up “media deception” in the dictionary and there is a picture of Limbaugh.

    Interesting how you offer that YOUR god beliefs are but utter fact.
    Besides YOUR faith… What is the foundation of your facts?
    How come someone else’s god beliefs can’t be what determines ‘fact’?
    You’ve been ‘presented’ one collection of information from which you base your belief of facts on while… Every one else has been exposed to their own set of information from which THEY determine their ‘fact’ beliefs on.
    So what makes you correct and them all wrong?

    Ratiocinative: “Being a Christian and believing in God has nothing to do with believing that one of the creation stories in the Bible is literally true, or that the earth is 6000 years old.”

    What? WHAT?! W H A T?!?!!!

    Don’t tell that to some others because they KNOW exactly what a Christian has to believe (and not believe.)

    Less traumatic to who AvengerK?

    If some of you truly seek to stand on your principles you will do more than just unfriend Beck. You’ll do as he also asked and that is to stop financially supporting him in any way.
    Pretty much ONLY then will you folks be making a truly tangible impact on Glenn. And you’ll be putting your money where your (mouthed) principles are. (Or really – rather – you’ll be taking your money away from where your principles are not shared.)

    Dunst can certainly hold whatever beliefs she wants but for many others, for her to offer up that: “You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work.” – - well…. No. Many do not agree with that.

    First off. Just what does it mean to say: “You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman.” Just what does that mean? What is it for a “man to be a man” or “a woman to be a woman”? What ‘makes’ that happen?

    And NO. Relationships do not JUST work because of that.
    Relationships work because of many, MANY factors. (Just as there are many kinds of relationships.)
    Just what determines a relationship that ‘works’?
    Even enemies can have ‘working’ relationships.
    Does being a submissive woman to a dominating man allow for a relationship to ‘work’? (Sure seems to sometimes.)

    Right now Glenn Beck seems to be having some difficulties making his relationship with some of his extreme base work.
    He is calling for a near zero-tolerance approach to calls for / acts of violence against out govt and, well…. That certainly seems to be straining the ‘working’ relationship between Beck and some of his base.
    But my guess is… As long as Beck keeps making enough money from at least some folks… He’ll be OK with whatever is needed to make THAT relationship work.

    Headline could have easily been… ‘ANYONE says he/she has a direct path to Heaven for their WHATEVER belief and work — no, really’

    Based on many I have directly encountered… MANY god/religion ‘truthers’ believe ONLY they have a direct path to Heaven. because of THEIR beliefs / actions. Just as THEY believe so many others do NOT have that path.

    Self righteousness is so empowering.

    Headline is… “NBA Star Stuns Some …”
    Not sure the examples used really show folks that were ‘stunned’ by Griffin’s god/religious beliefs but… At the very least they were offensive.

    Not really sure why these sports commentators/analysts/’journalists’ felt any need to even ask Griffin about his god/religious beliefs let alone seemingly belittle them after finding them out but…

    It is one thing to debate / challenge WHY someone holds certain beliefs – and THAT can be done without belittle such beliefs / done with respect… And it’s another seemingly try and make another look ‘bad’ because of such beliefs.

    Heck. Before commenting on Griffin, maybe these ‘stunned’ folks could reveal what their (god/religious) beliefs are. Are they as willing to have THEIR beliefs challenged as they seem to be at challenging others?

    Hey. I find it hard to understand how anyone with even a basic understanding of geological ‘history’ can still believe the earth is only about 6000 years old but… If that’s what they want to believe. Have at it. As long as such beliefs don’t ‘interfere’ with others gaining / seeking / holding alternative beliefs.

    And let me clarify one of my comments – because I know how some of you are.
    That comment being: It’s the spying itself (if that is what is indeed going on) that is the issue.

    Indeed SOME spying IS going on.
    My point was to stress that one on the ground CAN NOT TELL one way or the other IF such ‘spying’ is going on – or maybe… The device and viewing is being done for another – perhaps capitalistic – reason – SO…
    To just think… ‘Well there’s a drone. It MUST be recording my activity.’ …is a belief position that will be ‘costly’ to all.

  • April 16, 2014 at 9:05am

    Pretty amazing that folks don’t realize you don’t need a ‘drone’ to spy on you from the air.

    Would anyone be shooting at a manned aircraft?
    Ultralights. Small private planes. Even hot air balloons.
    How might one be able to tell is someone isn’t filming the ground from such air craft? (Answer is: They can’t. So…)

    All such manned (AND unmanned) crafts COULD have someone using recording technology to view what is going on down below.
    Or NOT!

    It’s not the air craft that is the issue people.
    It’s the spying itself (if that is what is indeed going on) that is the issue.

    Folks better get used to having ‘drones’ overhead as they WILL be utilized (already are) in a large variety of industries. (And the folks that can’t accept that – and perhaps ‘attack’ such crafts WILL pay a legal cost for such.)
    And since these crafts and ‘viewing’ technology can be ‘real time’ – it could be rather easy to see who is trying to destroy such crafts.

    Again folks…
    It’s not the craft nor ‘viewing’ technology that is the issue.
    It IS the illegal (spying) use of such that must be the focus of concern.

    So AvengerK… Did YOU unfriend Glen?

    Hardly is such just “more of a pagan thing”

    What? Do you have a difficult time accepting that your / other’s god/religious beliefs may incorporate some celestial ‘studies’ (and prophecy based off of such)?

  • April 14, 2014 at 9:52pm

    Glenn obviously does not read many of the posts from HIS ‘base’ here at TheBlaze.

    I would suggest that TheBlaze has done a good job of presenting the details of this case – and those details almost unanimously show how Bundy is in the wrong on this matter – and yet… So many who regularly post here still want to condemn the govt and (seemingly blindly) support Bundy AND… With many calling for a violent response to the govt’s actions.

    Glenn. When you have, for years, preached an almost totally divisive message… How do you think the extreme of your base is going to respond?

    Oh I don’t know about that

  • April 14, 2014 at 2:09pm

    Yea. Probably not.
    Just as they probably ALL don’t enjoy being ‘lumped together’ by those who hate and are intolerant of them for the reasons they are by some others.

    Maybe if more folks ‘walked in the shoes’ of others and experienced the hate and intolerance directed at them for but their differences. …And for differences that some are not of choice some are – and differences that certainly bear no harm to those who hate / are intolerant to them for — Then maybe there would be less hatred and intolerance in the world.

  • April 14, 2014 at 10:53am

    I wonder how someone could come to think others of another race, or religious belief, or… sexual orientation are but evil and to be treated with contempt and intolerance.

    Because they could have just as easily linked him to the Brady Bunch

    You’re probably right GBTVFan…
    He should have continued to live a lie.

  • April 14, 2014 at 10:21am

    “Don’t try to lie me, boy.”

    That tells me all I need to know about you MysteryofBabylon
