Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is under scrutiny from fiscal conservatives following his address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, when he defended his big government, big spending voting record in the Senate, including his vote for the "bailout," the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), the unconstitutional, ill-fated, taxpayer-funded, government-led nationalization and bailout of the assets and equity of several failed financial institutions in the wake of the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008.
It appears that Fox News� coverage of the 2011 CPAC presidential straw poll announcement was a misrepresentation of the actual events.
In the segment of this year�s event featured on Fox News� America�s Newsroom with Martha McCallem and Bill Hemmer, rather than presenting actual footage from the 2011 event, Fox News strangely showed the video of the results of the 2010 CPAC presidential straw poll, in which Paul was declared the victor before a crowd of disgruntled Mitt Romney supporters who loudly booed the results:
Two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents serving in Mexico were attacked Tuesday when gunmen opened fire on the blue Suburban in which they were traveling. Special Agent Jaime Zapata, on assignment from his post in Laredo, Texas to the ICE office in Mexico City, was killed.
When Fox News’ conservative pundit Glenn Beck or The John Birch Society warns of impending doom as a result of civil unrest, an underground Marxist movement, and the Cloward and Piven plot to collapse the economy, they are touted as fearmongers by the Left and the mainstream media. One wonders what those groups would have to say about New York’s recently released apocalypse guide.
