Pat Buchanan Points Out The Absurdity of Continued GOPe Attempts To Deny The Voter…

Pat Buchanan was interviewed by Sean Hannity last night and raises some good fundamental points regarding the ridiculous positions espoused by professional punditry and political elites.  Lots of plain common sense:

Buchanan points out:

1. Trump is holding rallies of 20,000 – 30,000+ IN A PRIMARY. This is a historic point that most seemingly overlook.  No-one ever before has gathered such crowd sizes in “primary races“.  Supportive crowds the size of Trump (and yes, Sanders) have only before been witnessed in “general elections”, and only one candidate on the republican side is capable of generating this much enthusiasm.

2. The talking point of a “contested convention” when the clear frontrunner is millions of votes ahead of the field is ridiculous. Prior 19th century “contested”, “open”  or “brokered” conventions never involved the sheer scope of the 2016 primary vote lead (currently 2.4 million ahead with well over 8 million votes).

3. This is not forty years ago. With instantaneous communication, instantaneous individual video recordings, and instantaneous video transmission of convention events to the phones, computers and TV screens of the larger U.S. electorate, the visible damage to the party apparatus attempting to defy the will of the voter will be irreparable if the RNC attempts or allows it.

      guarantee you it was raterdCruz…

      dimwits like Hannity fall for his schtik, which is why that clueless imbecile keeps wheeling cruz out on his show trying to make a case for him while pretending to be mr objective.

      There is a HUGE YUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING clueless and objective and Hannity is the most oblivious of them all when it comes to this difference.

          I really don’t see the point of trashing Hannity, Ingraham or Rush. All of them have come to the defense of Trump, even if they don’t agree with everything he says. That in itself separates them from the Beck-type idiots who ooze NeverTrump sentiment.

          Hell, I’m in that category, too. I’m voting for him and will write in his name if he’s not the nominee, but I don’t always like his stated positions. Just this morning in his town-hall meeting he stated that transgenders should use whatever public restroom they are comfortable with, and that he plans to raise taxes on the rich. I look past those things because I like his other positions, but they bother me.

          So when Hannity, Ingraham or Rush calls something Trump said into question, I don’t conclude they are the same as the NeverTrump haters. If they aren’t against us, we assume the worst about them? As soon as Trump is in, they will be his biggest cheerleaders. Levin is excluded from this, of course, because he’s already destroyed his own credibility.

              First off, I never was in the sheeple club. I have been banned from Glenn Beck’s The CRAZE website twice in the past year for my outspoken support of Trump and my constant challenges to the Cruzlims who could not reason their way out of a paper bag.. Don’t assume you know anything about me.

              Second, being sequestered to a meeting is not the same thing as consenting to the message in that meeting. You write this as though you have no real-life experience.

              Third, and connected to the first point, there’s no need for this site to become the bizarro-world version of The CRAZE, which is populated by unreasoning and mindless idiots who think the use of uppercase characters, bold text and multiple exclamation points makes their positions more valid. They condemn anyone and everyone who does not “check all the boxes” of their criteria of “REALLY REAL-REAL, TRULY TRUE-TRUE” conservatism. You seem to be doing the exact same thing with your own Trump checkbox.

              Since that one posted, I’ll try this again:

              (1) Don’t assume you know anything about me. I’m as far from a “sheeple” as anyone you will meet. I was banned from “The CRAZE” twice in the past year for supporting Trump and making the Cruzlims look stupid (although it wasn’t that difficult).

              (2) I just hate to see this site become the Bizarro-World version of “The Craze.” I’m seeing LOTS of the same parallels and exclusionary language here that I did on The Craze, except it’s pro-Trump instead of pro-Cruz. Over there, people were slammed and denigrated for not checking every single box of being a “TRULY TRUE-TRUE, REALLY REAL-REAL Conservative.” Their attitude was that if you were not COMPLETELY in line with Cruz and completely on-board with his creepy messianic mission, then you’re nothing more than a worthless POS who deserves no further consideration.

              Gotta say, I see a lot of those same traits in statements I’ve read from you. I just think it’s unnecessary to exclude and denigrate people who are not openly opposed Trump. It just makes you look like a typical Beck Bot.

              I don’t think he’s being a sheeple. There are things Trump has said that can make a person go “huh?” even if they overall support him. This bathroom thing was not one of his better moments in my opinion — but then I’m not down with the transgendered bathroom thing in the first place. Nobody is going to perfectly align with your own personal vision of things.
              I don’t trust any of the media (and imho nobody should, about anything not just Trump), but calling something Trump has said into question is not of itself nefarious.
              However, yeah, it looks like the media will try the soft pedal approach. Well, that should come as no surprise; they’ll probably fall all over their feet with that approach too.
              The best approach when it comes to the media, again in my opinion is, neutral. They are publicity whores, and thus cannot ever be completely trusted. Trust but verify.

                  Bruce, I AM impressed with your degree, especially if the hermeneutics and exegesis are biblical. I think where the disconnect here is that when you are exegeting biblical text, you know that on base, you are dealing with unimpeachable truth, but drawing out interpreting that truth. But there’s never a question of the veracity of the underlying truth, just how to understand it.

                  In so much of what we deal with here, we are trying to know where the little tiny bit of truth is, because 95% of what’s out there is LIES. We are trying not to get bamboozled, and it’s unnatural for us to do this. We all wish to be people of truth. We are trying to keep our balance, not easy. Objectivity is my friend, it keeps me sane.

                  And yes, sometimes some people get like the Cruzbots, where Trump can do wrong. I love him warts and all, but there ARE warts. I welcome your input.

                  Linden, respectfully, exegesis is not limited to biblical texts and has nothing to do with whether or not the text contains “unimpeachable truth.” It’s simply about what any given text says in light of things like background, context, tone, audience, and other considerations.

                  That’s easy. Cruz is a natural-born Canadian. SCOTUS case law has always interpreted (as opposed to defined) “natural-born” citizen as (1) one with a claim to jus soli (“right of the soil”) and (2) born “under the jurisdiction of the United States.” Cruz meets neither of those criteria.

                I respect your education, but try to interpret how that statement of yours could be received by people. You sound as if you’re saying you’re more qualified to “interpret” what someone is saying and thinking than others, because of your education.

                Hermeneutics and exegesis are related to Scriptural interpretation. Are you equating that with listening to and reading what politicians say?

                I do not see how knowledge of hermeneutics and exegesis makes you any more expert at hearing, understanding, and making judgments about what someone is saying than the average person with intelligence, common sense, and life experience.

            From all that I read, Rush is defending the system that is in place, is defending Cruz for using it to his advantage, and is painting Trump supporters who object to the system as sycophants who think Trump can do no wrong. Rush completely avoids the real issues and insults Trump supporters by not telling the whole truth. He is not standing for the people or for the way America is supposed to work in choosing its elected officials.

            If what Cruz is doing is according to the rules, that’s one thing; but the rules should not allow it, and they need to be changed. Rush will not say this, because to do so would be to criticize Cruz. I have lost all respect for him for slanting his coverage to make Trump supporters look unreasonable and for his defense of the corrupt system. It’s very simple to me (even if it might seem radical to some): If someone is not working to get the corruption out — if they are working against the only person who can and will do that — then they are working against the best interests of America and deserve zero support.

            In my honest opinion, I don’t think a lot of people are really thinking it through about the restroom issue. First off, I won’t use a restroom where someone comes into it and doesn’t know what sex they are, that is, if I can help it and know.

            But here’s the number one issue with this, and this is putting aside the transgenders, etc. My issue is, is that I’m pretty sure there are a ton of sexual perverts and child molesters who are happy as can be right now. It’s like giving them an open-door policy to attack kids, some sexual perverts can rape women, etc., including nowadays there seem to be a lot of sexually perverted women.

            Therefore, people who agree with that policy really need to do some deep thinking about it. Or what if it’s their grandchild that gets molested because of this.

Why is it that we’re letting the mentally ill set policy for normal people? I think that if a person has those kind of problems, they don’t belong in school in the first place. Much less be setting policy for healthy people.

          and yet Hannity keeps bringing Cruz back on, keeps pedaling him as an “establishment outsider”, keeps IGNORING,, willfully or otherwise the REASONS we have outlined MANY MANY TIMES HERE ON THE TREEHOUSE, WHY TEDCRUZ IS NOT an ESTABLISHMENT outsider and IS an insider trying to usurp the Tea party and grass roots movements popularity and momentum to end the globalists elites stranglehold on us, and the DC insider club of anti-nationalist politburo puppets, that infest the Republican party.

          This is why I say STAY ALERT, because the closer we come to victory the MORE DESPERATE these bushpublican elitists that enjoy being in the same club as the Soros and Gates world bankster set, become.

            It’s his JOB to bring Cruz in for interviews as long as Cruz is still in the news. And you’re right, Cruz is not an outsider, but someone in Hannity’s role doesn’t have the same freedom to exclude him that you or I have in the comments section of a website.

              Defend Hannitard all you want Brucey, but he is either the clueless simp he appears to be or he’s acting the part of the useful idiot on purpose. At this point no one should be taking Hannitys opinions seriously at all, when he’s simply not smart enough to understand how badly he’s getting played at times. Being a “useful idiot” doesn’t require you to be a “willing accomplice”.

Hannity’s job is to host a political forum that must necessarily accommodate a broader audience than Trump supporters. Give the guy a break. He very likely supports Trump (I think he does), and will be able to come to his defense after the nomination, but he can’t do that if he overtly supports Trump now and is discharged by Faux News because Cruz supporters raise accusations of bias. I’m just asking all of us to exercise a little foresight on this.

                  I’m confident that most of the “defenders” you run across here at CTH really do mean well, and are just trying to do their part in the ongoing battle against an onslaught of “hired guns” that this blog has seen lately. Honorable? – sure. Misguided? – perhaps.

            • Rush reminds me of myself, when I was technically for Cruz, but increasingly sympathetic toward Trump.

              I was never a fan of Rush, other than appreciating a deep insight he might have every few weeks. He was merely what I put on the radio when the music was bad. Thus, no betrayal was felt by me, for Rush supporting Cruz longer than I did. I am also now irrevocably for Trump, yet I am not convinced that Rush is a Bush-grade globalist, so much as a top-shelf victim of the same decades of globalist product positioning in the “conservative”, anti-Buchanan mindshare that WE were victims of.

              Rush strikes me as simply less bright, less investigative, and less objective than most of his fans believed. I can certainly see how that looks like betrayal to many.

              As for Hannity and Ingraham, I don’t know. Surely who they work for will have some effect on what they say (that’s the way of the world), but they haven’t been as egregious as some.
              And I don’t mind things said or done by Trump being questioned — if it really bothers me I’ll look into it. As of now nothing he has said or done has bothered me as much as the other candidates, but of course I don’t expect him to be perfect nor to be some all encompassing savior without fault. I don’t think he can save America either — at least not all by himself — that he has made a good start in bringing some important issues up is enough…it remains up to the people in this country as if anything gets done about it (something he has also brought up, which is also a point in his favor).

            How many of these “entertainers” call out Cruz, or Rubio, Sanders, or Clinton when they use bold-faced lies? How many of them told Cruz to his face that he was lying or refusing to answer a question? How many times have they repeated the same question to him and force him to answer it? They don’t. There is nothing wrong with calling out a lie that is easily proven. But they let the lie go unchallenged and move on to the next question that will be dodged.

            They should simply tell Cruz to answer the question instead of going off on some anti-Trump tirade. If he refuses, end the interview. It is that simple. They will either answer the question(eventually) or they will no longer have an avenue to spit out their garbage. When they cannot get “free” tv time, they will change their tune and start answering some questions.

            But the questioners are “entertainers,” not reporters, nor journalists. Journalists and reporters do not try to drive ratings. Entertainers do.

They’re not on a screen, they’re engaged in a conversation. I do interviews for a living. I’ve come to respect Hannity’s mind & ethics. He didn’t vote in primary because he’s not a registered Republican. And he really wants to unite conservatives. He’s basically saying Trump has won, and we should unite.

          That’s the “unfairly and grossly accused” part, but Buchanan didn’t do himself any favors with the way he worded it…and in retrospect if the U.S. (and others) had played it a bit more aggressively with der Fuhrer and pals at the very start of his chancellorship and Japan’s increasing militarization the outcome might have been different in a good way with regards to lives lost (granted, nobody was prepared in any form to back up any aggressive rhetoric at that time, which should come as a lesson — si vis pacem, para bellum…which was I believe suggested to FDR and no dice…a dumb and possibly corrupt move on his part…and where Buchanan is correct is delving into the part families like the Bushes (there were some notable others as well) had to play in that — they were making bank doing business with what were to become some of our most terrible foes; I’m sure they didn’t want their money flow interrupted…hmmm).
          So, while Buchanan’s natural inclination towards isolationism is (I believe) founded on the most noble of reasons and is usually very correct; this was one time when it did not benefit somewhat (although I think he is perhaps more inclined to agree with the big stick with an eye to avoiding entanglement further on, in which case he is again spot on).

    The DANGER OF WINNING for Donald Trump:

    as it becomes clearer that he is the nominee, the people choice that is, the establishment is quickly going to attempt a co-op coup attempt. BE AWARE!

    When we hear Prebius and other saying “we are willing to meet Donald half way” we should be VERY WARY of what this means. By half way, they mean “Lets talk about this wall idea of yours” and “why we need immigration and H1Bs” and “lets not be hasty there some good points to TPP”.

    This is the next, inevitable, stage in the process of the system protecting itself, When you hear people like a Hannity trying to dumb down the message and attempt to paint cruz and a “Trump lite” it’s because they are willing to concede victory through defeat for Donald Trump and those of us who have NO INTEREST AT ALL in continuing the globalist agenda prevalent in the “Republicans” who would support a Clinton presidency over a Trump presidency.

      Very astute observation. At a Trump rally I was asked by a NY Times reporter if there was anything that Trump could be more clear about. She was trying to get me to buy in to the idea that he hadn’t really thought out a lot of the issues. I did not bite. But I did offer my major concern, which is much like yours. To put it into my words, it is the fear that Trump will have to make a deal with his enemies to have a chance to secure the nomination.

      The beauty of point 3, as pointed out by Sundance, is that we do not need Laura Ingrham, or any pundits, to explain anything to us. We are perfectly capable of following as much of this contest on our own and when the need arises, talk it out among ourselves in forums such as this. You are so on target to point out how these people manufacture ideas and plant them in our heads. Trump does not need to ally with Cruz. This would only amount to taking one step forward and two steps back.

      Folks, all these conservative talkers are the equivalent of sport’s announcers. They sniff the jocks of the politicians and they try to create fans out of all of us in the electorate. It was once said that JFK talked over the print reporters and directly to the American People. Trump is doing much the same, except he is feeing himself from the shackles of Talk Radio which was controlled opposition from the beginning.

    The RNC already knows this will be destructive. They already know they might not win. They don’t care. They also know they will lose all control and power over the GOP if Donald is elected. They would rather maim the party (and the country) and have Hillary elected than lose their little fiefdom.

    For Donald it should be easy. Be nice and congenial (within reason) through the convention. If he wins, pretend to engage them to pass new legislation while conducting a massive replacement of every person in position of the party (including Reince). If the GOP conducts mutally assured destruction – go 3rd party full bore and cripple BOTH parties so badly (with message of ‘end the corrupt crony voting tyanny). Since 20% of Dems have said they would vote for Trump, he only needs 20% of the GOP (which he already has) to still win.

      A Republican president may be the figurehead and effectively leader of the Republican Party during his or her term in office, but I don’t think a president has much direct control over the RNC, or would be able to do much but maybe influence RNC committee elections.

        I disagree, Trump has amassed quite an army of voters that can effect change from the bottom up while he works on the higher levels of the party. It won’t be an easy task, but it is certainly doable. The Clintons did it and then Obama turned around and did it too. If they can do it on the left, we can do it on the right.

        Traditionally the President gains control of the RNC. Same is true with DEM’s. Aside from ‘party’ policy, It is primarily a fund raising organization and therein lies the power. It would be tough to raise money for the GOP if the most visible leader – the President – overtly came out and told people not to fund them. In Austin Texas a profane libertarian ran for the Chairman of the Travis County GOP. He won. The Vice Chair and party literally are moving to remove all financial control away from him before he takes office. The RNC could try and do the same, but Trump would have a huge ace up sleeve. Trump could actually form a third party WHILE in office, attracting most of the cash for Senate/House races to those he endorses. My guess is that if he incorporates someone like Gingrich as Chief of Staff – (or VP), the party will feel connected enough and Trump will likely slowly consolidate power. Gingrich understood as Speaker that you simply can’t pass bills without ALL of the party. You are inept. It will be interesting to see how that plays out AFTER the election. If a floor fight indeed tries to remove Trump, Trump could annihilate the party in so many ways even while technically remaining part of the GOP (endorsing outsiders, holding fundraisers against incumbents etc.)

    Federal Park Ranger Mocks Founders, Constitution … While Leading Tour of Independence Hall!
    BY J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS APRIL 19, 2016 CHAT 430 COMMENTS

    A federal employee of the National Park Service who offers guided tours of Independence Hall in Philadelphia — the birthplace of the Constitution — stunned a group of tourists this week by telling them the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were the product of “class elites who were just out to protect their privileged status.”

    Mary A. Hogan, a federal employee making in excess of $95,000 per year in salary and benefits, provided a tour Monday afternoon at Independence Hall laced with factual inaccuracies and disparaging comments about the Founders and the Constitution.

    Several attendees of her tour group on Monday told PJ Media that Hogan, who goes by the name Missy, had explained to them that “the Founders knew that when they left this room, what they had written wouldn’t matter very much.” Hogan told the group that the “most important part of the Constitution written at Independence Hall was the ability to change it.”

    Hogan also inaccurately told the tour group that “King George III paid more attention to Parliament” than the colonists “because they were right there and could remove him from office.” Parliament did not possess the power to remove the king from office in the 1770s, and does not possess that power today.

    Hogan’s LinkedIn page says she is the “chief of operations” at the National Park Service in Philadelphia.

      I predict that Lyin’ Ted will drop out sometime before Cleveland. some reasons:

      Math
      After the April 26 NE primaries, Trump will be up by around 350 delegates, probably more. Cruz will need roughly 120% of the Delegates. The math can only get getting worse and worse for Lyin’ Ted.
      Mocking
      People are already mocking and criticiizing Cruz for staying in, both left and right. See article above. See this video from Chris Hayes. He gets a little dig in on Trump, but basically is on the same page as Pat Buchanen.

      http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/ted-cruz-i-don-t-think-i-should-drop-out-670422595809

      It’s never going to end. Wait till the late night guys sink their fangs into him. That’s type of thing is psychologically difficult to withstand. I don’t think Cruz can take the stress and pain.

      Cruz is a insufferable aye-hole
      Cruz is already perceived as a sleazy lawyer. Trying to sell a convention with esoteric rules with delegated switching votes will just make him look more so. Plus, he doesn’t handle the press well, and will continue to lash out, gloat, and lie. The more people see him, the more people will hate him.

Problem was that he was two weeks too soon and then his shenanigans in Iowa took him apart. His strategy was to hide long enough to break out at the right moment and hope it would stick. It didn’t.

    Regarding the “bathrooms in Carolina” and the “tax the rich” and even the “abortion” and a few other so called conservative issues, I’m pissed that our great conservative leaders like Rush, Levin, Ingram, Malkin, et al have for years got us focused on these issues like they are what defines us.
    Then Trump comes along and helps me see that there is a set of issues that are so much more important.
    Thanks you Donald Trump!

    Pat Buchanan is the Ultimate insider. What he is saying here is true , but then didn’t we already know this ? Pat Buchanan is Knight of Malta and part of the Illuminati. He is globalist spoiler /spy.

    Okay, I’m outta here. After spending a couple years debating Cruzbots at The CRAZE and being banned there twice (former Blaze posters know me as “Helvidius” or “MoreCowbellBabies”), and hearing about this site on the Breitbart forums (BB posters know me as “MoreCowbell,” “Natural-Born Canuck,” and currently as “eliminaTED”), I came here thinking I might find some camaraderie among other Trump supporters. WOW! Was I mistaken.

    After just one hour of interaction it’s become clear that (with the exception of a few posters) this site is just as filled with nut jobs as is The Craze. Please, just do not tell anyone you know that you support DJT. All you’ll do is drive them off.

    Good riddance.

      Bye! You thought your intellectual breeding would make you a star. It didn’t. You thought your opinions were weighted more than others because of your PHD. They don’t. When you threw out your degrees, you revealed your true character. You could have been someone as you obviously are not dumb, but pride got to you. Please don’t tell anyone you are a Trump supporter. Your condescension will turn others off.

        Actually no, I didn’t think any of those things, Snowflake. Those are just suspicious, paranoid assumptions you bring to the table with new posters that you view as violating your “safe space.” All my ph.d. means to me is that I know virtually everything about virtually nothing. It was a side-point, nothing more, and was never intended to go further than that. But idiots like you read into it alternative motives of “gas lighting” (my god, get a phking grip), I assume because it makes you insecure and fearful of the “outside world” when someone has a different opinion of you. As I said, you are indistinguishable from the Cruzbots on The Craze. Get a phking life.

          Bruce D. You did not give these good people a chance.. Why..??
          I am new here and agree with some people and not others but one person is binding and that is Donald J Trump. Also Sundance and his good articles are an eye opener.
          Maybe I learned to have patience with myself and in that I have patience with others.
          I think that is wisdom that comes with age.

      Bruce with all of your education and ability to decipher the spoken word I’m a bit shocked that you’re so thin-skinned. You mentioned that you were a strong Trump supporter but you now categorize the majority of people here generally as “nut jobs”, Perhaps the only nut that is torqued a little to tight is the one in your highly educated brain.

      True, there is a lot of emotion and strong opinion here at the CTH. However, this site is not for the faint of heart. After the Wisconsin primary, I was almost done with the political discourse of this election cycle. To see how Cruz was manipulating the system and watching the outward disdain that the GOPe kingmakers were showing toward Trump really turned me off.

      Yet., I came to appreciate the strong resolve of the people here that are so focused on the end game. Some of us go off the rails at times and perhaps we are a little over the top but just like Trump, I think everyone here shares the single most honorable passion of saving the country. We see this election and Trump as our last refuge.

      So if you want to leave, be our guest and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Yet, leaving with such opinionated comments about many people that you don’t know personally, suggest that your educational pedigree may be a bit tainted. If you were looking for a little camaraderie here over at the Treehouse, you should have expected some pretty strong alpha personalities, just like Trump. Beta & Omega wishy washy types are the first to be spotted and called out.

      I suggest you read a bit here before posting about your intellectual capacity because humility will go a lot further and you’ll less likely get your feelings hurt by board responders. If you can’t follow that advice, grab the next vine and swing on.

        You’re not talking to someone who is thin-skinned, as any Blaze or BB poster here can attest. And don’t mistake me for a beta — I’m a combat vet and a former golden-gloves boxer (on no — I suppose THAT’s going to be held against me now!). You’re just talking to someone who expected a different welcome as a fellow Trump supporter than the welcome I received at the Blaze. Instead I get a bunch of insults right off the bat — and that was prior to mentioning anything about degrees. So don’t feed me your buIIsht.

        I’ve spent a lot of time with nut jobs over at the Blaze, and I can spot them instantly here. That’s too bad.

        If you EVER comment in that tone again I will add you to the very rapidly growing moderation que, and that goes for the rest of the jerks on this thread too.

        I only wish I could moderate everyone on this thread with one click, and then go back and release the handful of people who are actually worth keeping.

          I quite agree with you. I notice most of the long time people here no longer post. This new crew of posters I see are nothing but brats that can’t follow any courteous protocol or stay on topic. Kudos to our admin. though because their jobs have become so tough to keep up with them. I am still here but rarely post anymore and I don’t have the time to read through these brats posts.

        singtune, I apologize if I came across as “nasty” to the posters here. Just so I have an idea of what you’re referring to, would you mind quoting specifically where I was “nasty” without being provoked by someone else’s nasty comment?

        Also, can you elucidate where I am “WRONG” on my definition of “natural-born citizen”?

        Thank you.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is what I have to say about the bathroom/restroom business. Because I am considered elderly, and also I am frail and sick now, if I was attacked by sexual deviate in a public restroom, and if they had the goofy signs that said that they don’t know what sex they are ( so stupid), then my husband told me that if I had to go and really go and couldn’t wait (my age factor), then he’ll go into the restroom with me no matter what.

    If that be the case, other women should allow their husbands to go in. It’s not gender specific, remember? This is serious, and yet some people just do not understand it, I guess. I don’t care whose mouth it comes out of. I bet some of the people in gov. would not allow their grandchildren to go into one of those stupid restrooms.

      It’s coming to the place you and your husband should both be armed, have phones and/or GoPro cameras on filming in order to use a multi-person restroom. Small single unit family restrooms that lock are safest.

      This should be mandatory watching for legislators considering stupid laws regarding restrooms (and for the stupid irresponsible APA groups that normalized Gender Identity Disorder due to political correctness, political agenda harassment.)

    Most of you need to review our posting guidelines. You are going to moderation land sooner or later, and good riddance to a bunch of you.

    Reading these threads while moderating used to be fun, informative, and a great way to learn to examine issues from several viewpoints. People used…wait for it…logic.

    Now it’s just a bunch of overzealous lazy thinkers who pile on every slightly different viewpoint. Half of you are just the right wing version of the Liberal Horde.

    Menagerie I wish you had a mass ban button too. These comments threads are becoming way to much work, no longer fun or informative. Just a bunch of brats calling each other names and losing sight of intelligent conversation. Thanks for all the admins hard work and I wish I could send you all a huge bottle of Excedrin for the migraines you all must surely have.

    Not for nothing is the Republican Party called “The Stupid Party”. My prediction is they will wrest the nomination from Trump with last minute rule changes and then breathe a such of relief when Hillary wins. Don’t forget, the only interest they have is keeping the taxpayer funded Washington gravy train rolling. They know Hillary will do that. They can’t be sure about Trump.
