Love him or hate him, Glenn Beck has posed a massive threat to the Progressive agenda within the past two years. It took Beck awhile to subscribe to strict constitutionalist positions such as those put forth by The John Birch Society many moons ago, but once he arrived, he has become an unstoppable force. Even Bob Cesca of the Huffington Post had to painfully admit that Beck should not be ignored as he boasts several millions of viewers daily and even more radio listeners.
Allegations that President Barack Obama offered Congressman Joe Sestak a “high-ranking” cabinet position in order for Sestak to drop out of the Senate race against Democratic incumbent Arlen Specter may prove to be detrimental to the Obama administration.
Dale Peterson is seeking the Republican nomination for Alabama's Agriculture Commissioner, and in doing so launched an Internet campaign that has garnered well over a million views in six days. It's what they call “gone viral," taking even Peterson by surprise.
Chris Good of The Atlantic magazine put it plainly: “It was a big weekend for fiscal conservatives and Tea Partiers, not just in one state, but for the whole movement in America.” Good’s comments were penned two weeks before Rand Paul’s astonishing Republican primary victory over the Washington, D.C.-anointed Trey Grayson in the Kentucky U.S. Senate primary, which put an exclamation point on the comment.
U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky said he supports the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and would “unequivocally” oppose any effort to repeal it. The Republican nominee issued his statement after a news cycle dominated to a large extent by close questioning about his previous statements on the subject and whether he believed the principle of property rights should allow the owner of a business establishment to refuse service to racial minorities.
Obama’s connections to less than reputable characters and groups like Goldman Sachs, the Chicago Climate Exchange, “Fannie and Freddie,” former Chicago Governor Rod Blagojevich, Franklin Raines, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, etc. (the list appears infinite) have placed Americans in the unfortunate position of having to question everything that the government says and does. This epiphany has forced the Central Illinois 9/12 project to investigate the suspiciously preferable treatment Obama and his cohorts have provided to the Chicago-based, community-based investment bank, Shorebank.
The day after he won the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, it was clear that one of the issues political newcomer Rand Paul will have to confront in the general election campaign is his beliefs about a federal law enacted 46 years ago and rarely debated in more recent decades. The law is the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the issue that has been raised anew is its ban on discrimination in public accommodations.
On May 12, the American Patriot Foundation announced that there will be an Article 32 military hearing that may reveal whether President Barack Obama is a native-born citizen of the United States. The hearing is set for June 11, after Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin refused to deploy to Afghanistan “because the president refuses — even in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary — to prove his eligibility under the Constitution to hold office.”
