    If I’m understanding correctly, the video was made when the enzymes from sperm cells were added to human egg cells - not actual sperm cells. So what is on the video is not actually conception; there is no child being created in the video.

  • Unhappy America: Will The United States Collapse Due To An Internal Societal Meltdown?

    butterdezillion to HomerBohn

    Today’s society is the natural result of post-modernism. When nobody can know what is true - about ANYTHING - the only response to life, truth, lies... is “meh”. People can make up their own realities because perception is everything in our world.

    The arguments made have little to do with sound facts or reasoning and more to do with what people want to believe. It’s a problem in our churches, in our schools and colleges, in our government, in our social media, and in our forums. The basic epistemology is not evidence-based, and that will always help the groups that are not based in reality, which also happen to be America’s sworn enemies: communists and Islamists. The more “conservatives” try to fight falsehoods with more falsehoods, the more the vicious circle spins to its natural conclusion. The process of sorting out the truth means a lot, and whenever we abort the process because we fear the ultimate conclusions, the more we seal the fate of this society and nation.

    Neither Trump nor Cruz, nor Congress, nor Supreme Court, nor DOJ, etc can destroy this nation. Only the people of America can destroy this nation. And sometimes in the name of politics, we’re doing precisely that because our process of sorting out the truth is absolutely broken.

    Case in point: once I hit “post” I have to wait to see if the moderators think my words are OK to be heard. The process of sorting out the truth doesn’t matter because it’s not HOW we think but WHAT we think that matters. The very thing we accuse teachers’ indoctrination of doing is what “conservatives” themselves do. And it feeds into that vicious circle that the nation is swirling in before finally being flushed.

    Somebody needs to ask her, “Why do you have such bad breath and why do you wipe your poopy bottom with your bare hand?

    Because that is an appropriate, non-racist question to ask somebody in a public forum, as everybody at Harvard surely knows.

    Even if an elected official had body odor - as, for instance, Charlie Rangel has been said to have body odor - what self-respecting “lawyer” type person would make that their only question for that public official? This is a person who has no common decency, which is even worse than being racist.

  • Report: Obama Seeks Meeting With Iranian President

    04/20/2016 3:52:19 PM PDT · 22 of 32
    butterdezillion to butterdezillion is about backlash over Obama giving Iran access to dollar-based finances.

    Between Saudi Arabia openly threatening to remove their holdings from the US economy to punish us if we sue them for their support of the 9-11-01 terrorists, and Obama trying to welcome Iran as another pro-sharia player into US finance, and Obama requesting a meeting with Iran’s head-honchos (preceded by preparatory visits with our Treasury Secretary).... this does NOT look good.

    Kevin Freeman makes a good case for the 2008 financial crisis being an act of financial terrorism that was enabled by OPEC’s manipulation of oil prices so that the Islamist world would have the money necessary to collapse the US and/or world economy. Or at least to signal to the western world that they have enough money to do it whenever they so choose...

    Obama is telling Iran that the window of opportunity is closing. Obama is the window of opportunity. He was put in place to keep America vulnerable. I suspect that Obama wants to arrange with Iran what to do before this year ends. It could be a financial attack. Saudi Arabia’s threat should open everybody’s eyes to what the Islamist world is up to, but it won’t; Americans are blind. It could be an EMP.

    Either of those things could signal the start of the all-out Islamist war for Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, etc operatives within the US - which were brought in via direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela (until 2011, when the flights originated out of Syria instead, after a whistleblower revealed the cooperation between Obama’s good buddy Hugo Chavez and Iran...)

    Iran and Saudi Arabia are seen as enemies because the former is Shiite and the latter is Sunni, but both entities have Sovereign Wealth Funds that are sharia-compliant and believe in financial jihad against the infidels. The Muslim Brotherhood - which Obama and his regime openly support - was founded to try to get Islam to stop thinking in terms of the countries into which they had been divided, and to start thinking again in terms of an Islamic worldwide caliphate. A borderless world under sharia. That is what the Quran commands, and both Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia subscribe to that.

    And Obama is on their side. He always has been. The communists are allied with them now too - China and Russia as well as Venezuela, which under Hugo Chavez openly said that they were going to destroy the US and capitalism (which is also what George Soros, the owner of the DNC, has for his goals). And Obama has always been on the side of the communists too.

    butterdezillion to Sub-Driver

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew met with somebody to prepare the way for this proposed meeting. Obama is clearly sending a message that time is running out for Iran to get what it wants. Obama wants to do the damage before anybody replaces him.

    The analyst quoted in this article says that Iran probably won’t agree to this meeting because they have an election in 2017 and it wouldn’t do to have the candidate shaking hands with “the Great Satan”. I don’t think that analyst understands. Obama would likely bow to the Iranian candidate, right before making the entire US treasury sharia-compliant.

    Sharia-compliant finance is Islam’s way of enslaving the infidels. Revelation points to them being successful at it, too.

    Oil is currently cheap because Saudi Arabia wants to bankrupt the US oil companies while they still have the “cap and trade POTUS” on board to kneecap US companies while the Islamist-controlled oil doesn’t have to worry about EPA regulations.

    It’s always been said that our dependence on foreign oil is a national security issue, and the fact is that the rise in oil prices in 2007-2008 gave the Islamist enemies of the US a LOT of money to control in the stock market. Enough to collapse the world economy.

    Christians should look at Revelation and realize what is said about BAbylon falling and the whole world being aghast at the loss of the luxuries she gave them - and realize that the mark of the beast is about banking, the ability to buy and sell being dependent on acceptance of the mark of the beast. Sharia-compliant finance is Islam’s method to conquer the world; their plan is right in line with what was foretold in Scripture.

    Dr. Mark Christian gave a series of lectures here that was very enlightening, regarding the role of colonialism in defeating the latest caliphate. Britain and other European nations divided the loyalties of Muslim nations by making them their own country/colony, which broke up the Islamic caliphate. Islam is not about individual countries; it’s about Islam ruling the whole world. The Muslim Brotherhood was started after the latest caliphate fell to colonialism before WWI; the founders of the MB said that Muslims needed to get back on track with the Quran’s command to take the entire globe under sharia. And that command is universal to Islam - regardless of sunni and shia. The individual nations that are considered Sunni (Saudi Arabia) and Shia (Iran) are themselves considered by Islam and the Quran to be an OBSTACLE to the whole world uniting in a worldwide caliphate. Our analysts think that Sunnis and Shiites won’t work together, but everything changes when they have someone who has called for the rise of the caliphate.

    Obama’s use of the word “Levant” (ISIL - Islamic State of Iraq and the LEVANT rather than ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is a huge tell. Syria is a nation, not a caliphate. REferring to the Levant is erasing the national borders, which is what the MB is all about, and which both Sunni and Shia have united behind. (Obama’s hatred of Winston Churchill because of his support for British colonization in Kenya is another huge “tell”. The Muslim world was conquered by dividing the Islamist loyalties through geopolitical boundaries. The whole “no borders” thing is an Islamist ideal also. Everything about Obama and his allies points to the allegiances that Dr. Christian talked about).

    Our analysts are drawing distinctions that no longer matter, when the caliphate is being formed. And that is a very, very dangerous thing. Our enemies are dead serious. They do not get sidetracked like we do, with internal bickering, when everything they live for is on the line. We are going to lose this battle because they are more earnest than we are.

    I never said the US didn’t support jihadis. I said that communists and Islamists both want to rid the world of both America and capitalism. They work together toward those goals.

    “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” When America truly understands the earnestness of our enemies we will realize what a mess we are in. The Shia/Sunni divide has not kept Iran from being the lynchpin of Al Qaeda operations, as was seen in a document found at Bin Laden’s compound, which the US treasury has known about since 2011. Iran and Saudi Arabia worked together to drive up oil prices in preparation for the financial terrorism against the US.

    Communism and Islamism are on the same team. Kevin Freeman’s book, “Secret Weapon”, gives a very clear, documented picture of that.

    And Obama is and has always been on that team.

    I’ve come to believe that the Babylon of Revelation is the world banking system, and it is going to collapse at the hands of the beast out of the sea and the beast out of the earth (one of which is corrupt government - communism - and the other of which is corrupt religion - Islam). They will do it by jizya - a tax on infidels, which amounts to not being able to buy or sell unless you accept sharia, the mark of the beast.

    Ultimately the two beasts in service to the dragon (Satan) will fight each other. By then, those who follow Christ will all be dead. People still alive will all wish they were dead. Imagine a world where your choice is Stalin or ISIS... I’m glad I’ll be gone by then. I suspect it will be pretty soon...

    Thanks for that link. Wow, Obama did exactly what was necessary for that agenda. He lost Iraq, giving ISIS a base. He lost Afghanistan. He ignored the counsel of his military and intel people so he could let ISIS grow its power. He helped replace anti-terrorist Middle Eastern regimes with Muslim Brotherhood/terrorist regimes. He held the US door open for terrorists routed from Iran via Venezuela. He let Iran get nukes.

    Interesting, that they expect the actual all-out war between Islam and the “infidels” to last less than 2 years. That would explain why Obama said in July of 2008 that he would be POTUS for “the next 8 to 10 years”. If some catastrophic event at the end of Obama’s final term (which would make elections and/or inauguration impossible and thus extend Obama’s “Presidency” beyond its Constitutional 8-year limit) signals the US sleeper cells to start the war, the end of the US and completion of the Islamic world caliphate would be expected to be completed before 2018. Making Obama right on track with the 10-year part of his “8 to 10 years” estimate.

    It would have been 8 years if the all-out war had begun around 2014, which is around the time that Obamacare wasn’t ready to have people sign up for it, Lindsey Graham talked about South Carolina being nuked, and the Navy Yard was shot up...

    butterdezillion to Bruce Campbells Chin

    King Saud al-Abdulaziz gave the seed money for the Muslim Brotherhood. The successor to Banna, the original MB head, is Sayyib Qutb, who merged the ideas of Marxism and financial jihad. NPR reported in 2003 that “Qutb’s writings would later provide the ideological impetus for many radical Islamic groups of today - including al Qaeda.”

    Kevin Freeman’s book, “Secret Weapon”, shows connections of Saudi, Qatari, etc Sovereign Wealth Funds with financial jihad espoused by Bin Laden and other terrorists - and shows evidence that the 2008 financial crisis was the result of financial terrorism which was made possible by the huge amounts of Muslim-controlled cash from deliberately-elevated oil prices - with the cooperation of Venezuela/Iran (Hugo Chavez was one of the biggest, most blatant enemies of the US and basically synonymous with Iran).

    Qaradawi is a big MB guy - host of ash-Shariah wal-Hayat on al Jazeera (a show with an audience of 60 million spanning the globe, according to Freeman) - who said, “I like to call it jihad with money, because God has ordered us to fight enemies with our lives and our money”.

    The Muslim world - both Shia and Sunni - and communist world (including Russia, China, Venezuela, and others) are united in their desire to collapse America by collapsing our economy. Russia and China are allied with Iran, Venezuela, and other Muslim nations. The two ideologies are basically merged to defeat the US and capitalism. BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) is a financial alliance that has developed a currency intended to survive the collapse of the dollar. Freeman believes that Russia and China both have the ability (via stock market maneuvers or by cyber-warfare) and desire to collapse the dollar on their own timeline, when it will best serve their own interests.

    That time may well be now.

    Obama is and always has been allies with both the Islamists and the communists. He is on the team of Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, etc. He has “flexibility” now. He wants the “fundamental transformation” of America to be his permanent legacy. He’s planning on spending November and December of this year celebrating his “successes” with Latin-American leftist regimes.

    It could be that Obama knows the communist-Islamist defeat of the US is imminent, and doesn’t mind if people get a small foretaste of who their overlords are. Maybe he’s egging on Saudi Arabia to initiate the final take-down, signaling to China that it is time, before either Trump or Cruz have a chance to replace the stonewalling Obama regime which has (seemingly deliberately) kept our economy, borders, etc vulnerable to existential attack.

    The soap opera drama with lies by both teams and their supporters is hurting the nation and conservatives. If the focus had been issues perhaps Trump would have taken the time to solidify in his mind what to think.

    It’s not an easy question; there are legitimate arguments on both sides. And it may be that whether punishments are involved depends on the state of the woman when she does the deed, just as there are different levels of charges ranging from murder to involuntary manslaughter based on the condition of the person who killed another.

    Those who have hidden or outright lied about the biological facts of prenatal life are accomplices to a lot of innocent deaths today. Women who have been told by doctors that their choice is inconsequential have committed the crime of trusting their doctor, who is supposed to know the truth and say it. When doctors and politicians are not lying to women it will be a different situation.

    A woman who causes her own abortion can currently be charged with practicing medicine without a license, IIRC. Right now it’s not about women having choices; it’s about “doctors” having a lucrative living off of lying to women and offering them deadly solutions at a time when many of them are not in their right mind and are easily influenced. Some women know what they’re doing and are too hard-hearted to care, but for many of them it’s mentally/emotionally about like a 12-year-old girl who gives in to the wishes of a 30-year-old man. That’s why we charge the 30-year-old and not the 12-year-old.

    From what I’ve read (and from what you’ve said, Laz), we have a way of tracking enriched uranium by satellite. If ISIS has a nuke and gets it into the US, our military knows where it is at. That doesn’t mean that the CINC would do anything to stop it, and he’s systematically gotten rid of military leadership that would balk at obeying unlawful orders.

    Obama said in July of 2008 that he would be POTUS for “the next 8 to 10 years”. That could only happen if something happened late in his 2nd term that made elections and/or inauguration of a new POTUS impossible. And now - right on schedule - ISIS is all over the US (with more being invited in all the time, openly) and North Korea and Iran - both belligerent trigger-happy enemies of the US - have nukes and satellites with which to EMP attack us since we have no south-facing radar to defend us from the polar orbit their satellites are in. Obama is planning to be in Latin America yukking it up with his communist buddies in November and December.

    If Obama is talking about ISIS possibly having nukes - knowing that our military can track those nukes even if ISIS has them - it seems to me that he is setting the stage for a nuke attack to be CALLED an enemy attack, even though it can only happen if he stops the military from responding to stop a known threat.

    IOW, he not only has NK and/or Iran who could act as his surrogates in a satellite-based EMP attack, but he has ISIS in the US which can now act as his surrogate for a conventional nuke attack within the US.

    Trump measures his success at least partly by the number of powerful, beautiful women he’s slept with. Even very recently. It seems like he loves his family and I am happy for them. I hope he will not be unfaithful to his wife because it seems that she cares, even if he still treats it as if “getting some” is a resume enhancer. Sometimes having kids opens a person’s eyes, and I am very, very happy that Melania’s life is what it is right now. I am disgusted with those who have dragged her past into this, as if she can’t be allowed to change her life.

    If Cruz IS in those books from 13 or more years ago, does it mean that he can’t have changed in the past 13 years? Does it mean that he can’t love his family just like Trump loves his?

    My question to you was just to say, “How many of us want to be permanently chained to what we were doing 13 years ago?” 13 years ago Donald Trump was writing checks to Hillary Clinton and calling Obama great. Does that mean he’s a hypocrite now? No, because people can change. Trump can change, and Cruz can change. And people recognize that - except when somebody is vocal about their Christian faith. Then they are expected to be perfect, no forgiveness or new beginnings allowed. The only crime we - liberals and “Christians” alike - can’t forgive is being vocal about your Christian faith while being an imperfect human.

    The Apostle Paul said,

    “I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do - this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war gainst the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God - through Jesus Christ our Lord!

    (Romans 7:18-25a)

    If not being able to live up to the good you profess makes a person a hypocrite and a liar, then we need to throw out everything but the red lines in the Bible, because He is the ONLY one who hasn’t sinned.

    Among sinners, there are 2 kinds - the kind that hate what they do and seek to do better (called “hypocrites” if/when their sin is discovered) and those who enjoy what they’re doing and have no intention of quitting (the “truthful” ones who never have to worry about their sin being found out - though they may get angry when the photos of it are posted during a presidential election).

    I could never run for office because I have not been perfect. There are things of which I am ashamed, and the only people fit for office are those who are ashamed of NOTHING. The only truly un-PC word is “sorry”. Anybody who uses that word is immediately dead meat.

    And we wonder why DC is the way it is.

    I see on this board people who gleefully wait to hear the juicy gossip, can’t wait to see another “Bible thumper” fall, and will laugh their heads off at Cruz and his witch wife from hell as their family is torn apart.

    The Romans cheering on the lions in the ring with the dreaded “Christians” have nothing on this place. It’s ugly. Trump is a sinner. Melania is a sinner. Ted is a sinner. Heidi is a sinner. Hillary is a sinner. Bernie is a sinner. You are a sinner. I am a sinner. Every one of us needs a new chance. This NATION needs a new chance.

    Right now we’re all hypocrites - willing to give some people a new chance but deny it to others. It stinks. Lewandowski has probably come the closest to grasping the situation, when he said that Trump is just as guilty of controlling Stone/NE as Cruz is of controlling the PAC that ran the Melania nude photo ad. What he was saying, I thought, was that both sides are applying a double-standard so let’s just start back at zero. Sounds good to me, but nobody here is interested. It’s ugly. And I suppose because I said that this comment will not be approved.

    I agree with Paul. Who will save us from this body of death? It’s not going to be any of the candidates or any of the rabid followers of any candidate. I don’t care who wins the election, but I really wish the “good” people of America would get their heads screwed on straight.

    And actually, many of the “good” people of America do have their heads screwed on straight. Sort of. They grieve the hateful mess of lies that politics is. But they also don’t bother to check out what the media is refusing to tell them either, so they don’t understand why both Cruz and Trump and their followers are so intense.

    Ugh. The coup of 2008 REALLY needs to be exposed. I wish Cruz and Trump were working together to do that, instead of all this other trash-talk. And I still suspect that Obama is laughing at these battles, knowing he’s going to have North Korea and/or Iran EMP attack us before any new POTUS can be sworn in anyway.

    This author apparently buys into the methodology that says that the “back alley” abortion rate among normal women is the same as the rate among prostitutes. Dr. Bernard Nathanson has refuted all the tired old claims this author brings up.

    There is research being done regarding why there are so many miscarriages, early delivery, and stillbirths. One of the causes of premature births is abortion, which can damage the cervix. It is believed that many miscarriages occur because something went wrong at conception. The child creates the hormones that signal the changes in the mother’s body to allow the child to thrive. If something got mixed up at conception there is no way to fix that. A child can’t be un-conceived.

    The analogy to hiring a hit-man to kill your 5-year-old is thought-provoking. But at least in the context right now, it would have to be in a society that tells you that a 5-year-old is just “tissue” like blood or snot, in a society where there is no child support if the mother doesn’t kill the 5-year-old “tissue” because it is her legal option to kill that child and the child’s father has nothing to do with it, and the woman would have to have raging hormones to battle. In those circumstances yes, she still bears responsibility but it could be considered more like aggravated manslaughter on her part. On the part of the “doctor”, though, it’s just cold-blooded murder.

    If we had a sound society, that recognized the value of human life, women would not be so vulnerable. And indeed, in the past when there was a foundation of respect for human life, there was a LOT less abortion. And a lot less divorce, and a lot less promiscuity, and a lot less drugs, and a lot less of a lot of really bad stuff.

  • Guest Post: Trump and the True “Victims” of Abortion

    Make it illegal to sell abortions and nearly all abortion will stop. Require doctors to give factually accurate information and it will stop. Train up men to be real men and not just hedonists, and it will stop.

    When those things are done, and women choose abortion anyway, then the guilt is all their own. In the meantime, far too many women have been lied to for the sake of political gain.

    Ironically, if a woman (or her boyfriend) does something to induce abortion (such as the boyfriend who beat his girlfriend until she miscarried) he/she can now be charged for practicing “medicine” without a license. So the “pro-choice” folks who are bent out of shape by what Trump said have no leg to stand on.

    If every person cared more about finding (or waiting for) the real truth than they care about destroying the person running against their chosen one, this would be a different place. We can’t legislate an evidence-based epistemology and the fruit of the Spirit; people either have it or they don’t, and as long as people don’t care for truth we’re gonna have problems.

    FR is a microcosm of the nation. A democratic Republic can only survive if the populace is moral. And the USA mostly isn’t. Most people care about what is expedient, not what is right or true. The only way the nation will turn around and be saved is if the people let GOD change them into people who truly seek truth and justice.

    And because I said that out loud here, my comments are all being moderated as if my account was less than a week old. Apparently Romans 1 is not OK here.

  • Cruz Comes Out for Abortion: Even If Abortion is Illegal 'Women Who Get Them' Should Not Be Punished

    03/30/2016 3:23:46 PM PDT · 118 of 218
    butterdezillion to xzins

    An abortion is one dead and one wounded. Most women who abort do so because they were pressured by somebody else to have the abortion. And many post-abortive women punish themselves, though they don’t realize they are doing it. Those who work with women in prison have said that probably 80-90% of the women there, when they finally look at their life, realize that their life of promiscuity, drugs, and crime began as a response to an abortion. They wanted to die just like their child had died, because a big part of them died with the child.

    There’s no such thing as a woman having no consequences to an abortion.

    What they need more than anything is healing. The people who exploit their personal pain and raging hormones for the sake of money and/or power are sick puppies, and they are the ones who need legal punishment.

    I am about as pro-life as they come, but I’ve had a personal experience that helps me relate to abortive women. We lost our first child at 42 weeks. We had 3 living children and then I miscarried and went into post-partum depression. I conceived again but when I almost immediately had spotting we did an ultrasound that confirmed a heartbeat - when my daughter looked like an old-time clothespin. I cried with joy. A couple days later the doctor told us he had never seen a child survive with that slow a heartbeat; we shouldn’t get our hopes up. I should take progesterone to keep from miscarrying in the remote chance that the child would live. I had tests to monitor the HCG and progesterone levels but the nurses started not calling me or calling me back and I thought they must know that the child had died. I didn’t think I could survive the pain of hoping and losing again. Believing she had died, I wanted to stop the progesterone and give up. My husband was not full of raging hormones and he wouldn’t let me stop the progesterone. My sister spoke faith to me, and our daughter - who we named Tabitha, our little girl back from the dead - was given my sister’s name for her middle name.

    I had no hope. I needed somebody to be strong for me, and my husband was. That’s what a husband is for. But these women most often have a man who wants her to kill the child, have parents who want her to kill the child, and are told by a “doctor” that it’s just a blob of tissue like a bloody nose. They are hurting and deceived.

    I mentioned that our first daughter was stillborn at 42 weeks. When our second child came along I developed gestational diabetes after the time they usually test for diabetes, and I was confronted with the probability that the same thing had happened in my first pregnancy and my Christmas candy had killed my child. The doctors had told me everything was fine, and I trusted them. But I had to live with the realization that my trusting the doctors had killed my child. Could you imagine if, after the hell I lived through because of that, a police officer knocked on my door and told me I had to go to jail for killing my child?

    If we had a law that nobody could earn one penny off of abortion it would end tomorrow. These doctors don’t do this out of the goodness of their hearts; they do it for money. And the women they deceive and abuse are just one more casualty, just like the child in the slop bucket.

  • Glenn Beck’s Lie Could Blow Up Ted Cruz

    03/30/2016 6:38:24 AM PDT · 12 of 24
    butterdezillion to ohiobuckeye1997

    This reporter should be sued for the headline “Glenn Beck’s lie...”

    Glenn Beck got his information from intel sources who risked their careers to give him that information. He passed it on to the MSM because the story was of such significance that it needed to come from them. And reporters wrote stories on it, based on the evidence he gave them. But the incestuous media heads would not allow the reports to air.

    By the time this court case (if there is one) rolls around, it would be a Cruz or Trump DOJ or State Dept that would deal with the whistleblower, and he/she would come forward and testify on behalf of Beck. Otherwise, Obama’s DOJ/CIA would gag the guy just like Schaffer was gagged by the DOJ when Curt Weldon brought forward the Able Danger issue. And the guy would lose his pension, etc - like all whistleblowers do under the Obama regime.

    I don’t agree with everything BEck does and I suspect he needs to get back on his meds, but he has definitely been on the right side of history when it comes to exposing many bad things. It’s too bad that 2008 was a coup, complete with threats to the media which resulted in a propaganda arm such as the gal who wrote this article. She was careful to couch her claims in words that don’t directly accuse people - thus making her unable to be sued, much like the National Enquirer did with the Cruz mistress allegations - but they DID screw up on the headline, which references “Glenn Beck’s lies”.

    Then again, why am I even typing because the moderators are pretending that my account is less than a week old.

    Trump brags about how many married women he’s slept with. No problem. Says he’s never needed forgiveness from God for anything. No problem.

    If Cruz had those standards it wouldn’t matter what he did. So Cruz’s “sin” - according to the way people here act - is that he ever stood for standards in the first place.

    That’s where America is at, and that includes “conservatives”. We prefer the boastful fornicator to the “hypocrite”.

    Romans 1:32 gives the ultimate judgment on the Roman people. It’s bad enough that the people are depraved in their thinking and do bad stuff, but the ultimate statement is “they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

    I realize that politics is not the same thing as “religion”. But the mindset of the American people is a very, very sad thing to behold. The country is decaying because there is very little salt to preserve the meat. And anybody who does try to be salt is immediately shot down because they might be a sinner, as their very profession of Christianity is supposed to mean.

    America is in worse condition than even I ever thought. I seriously doubt whether this nation can be saved. The only One who could do it is God but that’s not where we’re looking for help.

    I haven’t researched the insurance issue so I can’t say anything about that.

    Cruz did liquidate his assets - just as surely as Donald Trump is funding his own campaign (by taking out a loan from himself).

    Ben Carson DID suspend campaigning. He had no campaign events in NH or SC - just as he had told CNN.

    Cruz apologized for not correcting the story when the Carson campaign (falsely, it turns out) said that he wasn’t going to suspend his campaigning.

    The Cruz team was saying that Carson supporters might want to think about whether to support a guy who wasn’t really going to try to win - and the NH and SC campaign schedules, after Carson had said he would quit if he didn’t win the first few states, supported those questions. There was a reason that Carson’s entire NH campaign team quit on Sunday and went to Cruz’s team, saying they didn’t want their efforts to be wasted.

    butterdezillion to Fresh Wind

    How do you know the Cruz campaign didn’t believe that to be true because they had been told it by Carson’s NH campaign staff which had just a day earlier quit the Carson campaign amiably and joined the Cruz team because they didn’t want to waste their time on Carson’s non-campaign? My bet is that they joined Cruz’s team because Carson had told them he was going to announce the end of his campaign on Wednesday after first seeing how he did in IA.

    There was a tweet by somebody said to be with the Cruz campaign (though his own twitter page said he wasn’t with any campaign) saying that Carson’s NH campaign had confirmed that he was stepping down, which fit with what Carson’s campaign had told CNN and with the fact that no campaign events were scheduled for either NH or SC and Carson had told Hannity that if he didn’t WIN those states he would step down.

    And then Carson changed his mind about announcing on Wednesday because he was angry and saw a chance to slam Cruz and either rise himself or give himself a chance to be in the Trump cabinet.

    The Cruz team was guilty of not allowing Carson to make his own announcement to the public, rather than having the announcement be revealed early by others who revealed what he had told his NH team.

    But any reporter who has used the phrase “according to sources close to the investigation...” has done exactly the same thing. (And everybody on this board who has passed on a story that eventually turns out to be untrue has too.) When you and everybody else start saying that those people (and yourselves) are “liars” if the investigation changes its mind, then I’ll believe there’s not a very convenient double standard at play here.

    I understand what you’re saying and agree on most of your points.

    What bugs me is the scorched-earth, wanton lack of care for truth or common decency - by the PUBLIC.

    I don’t want a pastor-in-chief but it does give me serious pause if a man who calls himself Christian doesn’t even know that he’s not perfect. Especially because I know that the only thing that can save America at this point is divine intervention. I somehow think that the American Revolution might have ended differently if George Washington had not truly been relying on God. And we’re facing a heckuva lot worse than George Washington faced, because our populace is deceived on nearly everything and doesn’t even care.

    Trump made sure he had everybody tell him how Anti-First-Amendment it would be to make it easier to hold the press accountable for lies...

    Not that he has to worry about it too much though, because he’s the only one with enough money to bankrupt people trying to defend against his lawsuits. You think Amanda Carpenter and Katrina (what’s her name?) have the money for those lawsuits? Or Cruz, while he’s having to campaign?

    And do notice that NE didn’t name names. Nobody can sue because they never made any actual claims. They gave speculation and posted blurred-out photos. Innuendo. That’s what it is. A “suggestion”, a rumor. They made sure they couldn’t be sued, and that also says something.

    butterdezillion to ichabod1

    There’s a pattern of The National Enquirer publishing hit-pieces whenever a Trump opponent threatens his lead. From the Oct 30, 2015 article at (Note especially the Modus Operandus in smearing Jeb - the double-whammy of NE accusing of an affair with a former Playboy bunny, at the same time as Trump posts an unflattering photo of Jeb’s daughter...):

    Throughout his scorched-earth presidential campaign, Donald Trump has mastered the art of the political attack against all of his rivals save one: Ben Carson. How he should handle the soft-spoken former neurosurgeon has been a question that’s vexed Trump from the moment Carson began eating into Trump’s lead. First, Trump tried attacking Carson head-on, questioning his medical reputation by calling him an “okay doctor” (Carson is known to have separated the first conjoined infant twins). When that didn’t work, he tried embracing him onstage at the second primary debate.

    Now, as Carson overtakes Trump as the GOP front-runner, it appears Trump is getting help from a media outlet known for ending presidential candidacies: the National Enquirer. Earlier this month, the Enquirer published a cover story on Carson headlined “Bungling Surgeon Ben Carson Left Sponge in Patient’s Brain!” The article called Carson a “White House wannabe” and claimed he “brandished a scalpel like a meat cleaver!” It went on to quote angry former patients saying he botched surgeries that left them disfigured and in pain; one patient who sued Carson said he forgot to remove a surgical sponge from her brain after a procedure. “His presidential campaign should be dead on arrival!” Enquirer reporter Sharon Churcher wrote.

    Trump and Enquirer CEO David Pecker have been friends for years. “They’re very close,” said a source close to the Enquirer. In July 2013, Trump even tweeted that Pecker should become CEO of Time magazine, which at the time was being spun off from its corporate parent, Time Warner. “He’d make it exciting and win awards!”

    This person also said that Trump’s campaign was a source for the article: “His campaign provided information that was used,” he explained. A Trump friend said that in the days leading up to the article’s publication Trump was telling people that Carson “had a lot of medical malpractice suits” and “almost killed a guy.”

    Trump’s spokesperson, Hope Hicks, told me “there’s absolutely no truth” to the claim Trump was behind the article. When I asked the Enquirer for comment, Pecker said it was “utterly false” that the Trump campaign was their source. “We did what the National Enquirer has always done, our investigative reporters went back and poured through numerous legal documents to discover the details that led to our exclusive coverage of malpractice claims against Ben Carson,” he said in a statement.

    Whether or not Trump has been a source for the Enquirer, his friendship with Pecker has paid dividends. At key moments during the GOP primary the Enquirer has helped boost Trump’s campaign by attacking his rivals and fawning over him. Two weeks after Trump launched his campaign in mid-June, the Enquirer reported that Jeb Bush was “involved in the drug trade in Florida” in the ‘80s and that, as governor, he was plagued by “sleazy cheating scandals … [with a] Playboy Bunny turned lawyer.” In September, the Enquirer published an unflattering photograph of Bush’s adult daughter apparently taking cigarette breaks at her office. The article hit just days after Jeb told Americans they needed to work longer hours.

    Carly Fiorina has also been slimed. After the former Hewlett-Packard CEO bested Trump at the second GOP debate last month, the Enquirer ran an article headlined “Homewrecker Carly Fiorina Lied About Druggie Daughter.” The article attacked one of Fiorina’s best moments at the debate: her emotional account of her daughter’s struggle with drug addiction. “The National Enquirer has exclusively learned that Lori Ann Fiorina, who died in October 2009, was in fact Carly’s stepdaughter,” the tabloid reported. “She was brought up not by Carly but by her biological mom, Patricia Fiorina, whose marriage allegedly was wrecked by the 61-year-old White House hopeful who is determined to knock Donald Trump from his superior front-runner status!”

    The tabloid has also gone after Hillary Clinton, of course. A series of cover stories has alleged that Clinton is on her deathbed and is “engaging in a massive cover-up about her health.” The Enquirer claims she is suffering from strokes, brain cancer, depression, alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, endometriosis, and paranoia, among other dire conditions.

    Meanwhile, Trump has been exclusively celebrated in the Enquirer’s pages. As talk of a Trump candidacy heated up last winter, the tabloid published an article headlined “Trump’s the One!” that reported him leading in the polls. In September, the Enquirer published a three-part series by Trump himself under the headline “The Man Behind the Legend!”

    Trump’s scandal-filled personal life would be yuge! for the supermarket tabloid, but to the Enquirer, it seems, friendship is forever.
