Fair question.
"Last but not least, I was a Republican, a Reagan Republican. Still am. Not a Tea Party Republican. Not a Breitbart Republican. Not a talk radio or Fox News Republican. Not an isolationist, protectionist, immigrant-bashing, scapegoating, get-nothing-useful-done Republican. Not, as I am often dismissed by self-declared "real" conservatives, a RINO, Republican in Name Only. I'm a Reagan Republican, a proponent of lower taxes, less government, free markets, free trade, defense readiness, and democratic internationalism."

THANK you, Ben Sasse.  You are one of the few good guys in DC.

This is what happens when you elect a President who is clueless as to what the Constitution says.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

cultural Marxist crap.

So basically you want the Fed to tell the broadcast networks what stories to push?

Trump should respond by lifting the ban on political activity by 501C3 organizations, including churches.

@kevindavis
Obama had a hotline to MSNBC who admitted they cleared stories with the White House before publishing them.

Did that bother you?

The communist scumbags are the ones reporting lies as news and
pushing communist propaganda.

a no no. If that is not true I will adjust my posting style accordingly.

@jpsb  Yes, communist was a bit specific and personally descriptive. 

All that we can really say is that you're pushing the totalitarian, anti-Constitutional, anti-American line.

No but continuously broadcasting lies as news and covering up for the communists
is not providing a public service. There is a standard you know. See THE PUBLIC

Really? What tangible thing has Ben done that is good for the country? All I see is another loser who pops his head out of his hole to spout off his righteous indignation and then goes back to cashing his paycheck and hanging around with the boys in the gym.

We can also say you are defending those who have sworn to destroy America.

Yes, you can say that.

But I'd rather defend America and do that, than to attack America.

Jonah Goldberg is a conservative? Who knew. If it wasn't for a stained blue dress

And once again I must ask,  "Why are Democrat leaders not plagued with these same sort of mouthy @$$holes who question their motives?"   


Why does this seem to only be a problem for Republicans?

Because our side has critical thinkers. Their side doesn't.

If Barack Hussein Obama had called for the revocation of FCC licenses of broadcasters who criticized him, would we conservative lovers of the Constitution have praised or criticized him? That's pretty much all Jonah was saying.

Anyone who truthfully answers that yes, he would have been outraged at Obama, but is defending President Trump's comment may want to rethink his self-proclaimed regard for the First Amendment.
